PhillyWood Spotlight…what’s the difference

April 15th, 2018 by Leo | Comments Off on PhillyWood Spotlight…what’s the difference | Filed in General, Matrix, PhillyWood, Twitter

Here is a good posting by BrightPlanet that give a good base definition of the difference between the Deep and Dark Web.  TalkSportsPhilly’s PhillyWood Project spotlights information outside of the Sports Arena and this is the first spotlight article in the series.

“Earlier this week, Forbes released an article titled “Insider Trading on the Dark Web”. BrightPlanet was mentioned within the article, and BrightPlanet was introduced as a company that collects content from what is called the Dark Web.  While we appreciate being mentioned in Forbes, there are a few definitions we want to clear up for readers.

With recent emphasis being on the Silk Road shutdown by the media, we’ve found a significant misunderstanding of the terms Surface Web, Deep Web, and Dark Web. We hope that this posting can help guide you through these often confused terms and get a better understanding of how the web works.  You’ll understand that Forbes’ definition of Dark Web content was indeed inaccurate. Let’s get started.

Starting with the Surface

To start on our journey of the different aspects of the web, we’ll begin with the surface; the parts you’re most familiar with. The Surface Web is anything that can be indexed by a typical search engine like Google, Bing or Yahoo. Google has a great interactive story explaining how they index and search the web in depth.

Games To Watch: College Edition

September 15th, 2014 by Ryan Waterman | Comments Off on Games To Watch: College Edition | Filed in College Sports, Football, General, Sports, TalkSportsPhilly, Twitter

Three weeks are already in the books, and another is just starting to shape-up, with the marquee game being No.23 Clemson traveling to Tallahassee to battle the No.1 ranked Florida State Seminoles. This game is being billed as one of the biggest this season, and that got me thinking, what other big games to we have to look forward to? Well, buckle your seat belts as we take a look at the 8 most interesting games slated for later this season.

1.) Week 7: (#2) Oregon at (#12) UCLA

Heisman hopefuls Marcus Mariotta and Brett Hundley duke it out as the Ducks travel to the Rose Bowl in LA to take on the Bruins. Mariotta will likely have his hands full, as he takes on a defense that scored 3 TDs in Week 1 against Virginia. Meanwhile, Hundley will look to boost the Bruins into championship contention with a strong performance against one of the toughest defenses in the country.

2.) Week 8: (#6) Texas A&M at (#3) Alabama

The Aggies minus Johnny Football have looked impressive so far, thrashing #9 South Carolina 52-28 in Week 1. But, Kenny Hill is in for a MUCH more difficult test, as the Aggies travel to Tuscaloosa with the hopes of spoiling the Tide’s title hopes. On the other hand, the Tide see this as a possible statement game, after a less-than impressive 33-23 win over West Virginia in Week 1. No matter where the rankings stand come this game, it promises to be entertaining, at the very least. (more…)

Sixers Reportedly Sign JaKarr Sampson

September 15th, 2014 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on Sixers Reportedly Sign JaKarr Sampson | Filed in Basketball, General, Sixers, Sports, TalkSportsPhilly, Twitter

There is no hiding that this has been a quiet summer for Sixers fans, and some could even argue it has been quiet for over a year. Tonight the Sixers made a small move in their attempt to continue filling out the roster, signing former St. John’s forward JaKarr Sampson.

Sampson went undrafted after leaving St. John’s, where he averaged 12.8 points and 6.1 rebounds last season. As a member of the Sixers Orlando Summer League team this summer, he averaged 8.2 points and 4.8 rebounds in five games.

Sampson comes in at 6’8″, and he brings a lot of athleticism with his game. His role in the NBA will likely be switching between small forward and power forward, or what many people call a “tweener”. He doesn’t bring much of a long-range shot, but does have a solid mid-range game which will continue to be developed in the NBA.

His deal is a partially guaranteed deal, and we will likely see Sampson as another player who will be competing for a decent role as he is developed by the Sixers. It is a good signing, as the 21 year old potentially can turn out to be a good bench player off of his athleticism and rebounding skills alone at this point.

Penn State Bowl Ban Lifted: Nittany Nation Rejoices

September 15th, 2014 by Ryan Waterman | Comments Off on Penn State Bowl Ban Lifted: Nittany Nation Rejoices | Filed in College Sports, Football, General, Sports, TalkSportsPhilly, Twitter

Yesterday, was a day that sent shockwaves through the NCAA. Back in 2012, the NCAA leveled severe penalties against the Penn State football team, including a 4 year bowl ban. Following two years of adhering to the NCAA’s rule and sanctions that were laid down, the Nittany Lions were rewarded for their good behavior. As of Monday, September 9th, 2014….the Penn State Nittany Lions, are once again eligible for a postseason bowl appearance. George Mitchell released his “Mitchell Report” on Monday, regarding Penn State and their academic integrity.

In his report, Mitchell suggested that the NCAA lift both the postseason ban on Penn State, as well as its’ scholarship sanctions. Starting next season, Penn State will be back, and running at full strength. But, this article will take a look at what this means for Penn State’s current season.

As the Lions enter week 3 of the season, they currently sit a 2-0. Following a 26-24 win against UCF in Dublin, a 21-3 slop-fest against the Akron Zips, and a 13-10 scare against Rutgers, James Franklin is preparing his team for the Minutemen of UMass next week. In the weeks following, they play host to  Northwestern, before their showdown under the lights against Michigan at the Big House.

Their last six games following Michigan, include a Saturday Night showdown against the Braxton Miller-less Ohio St Buckeyes (at home), and a late season showdown against the Spartans from Michigan State. Sandwiched between those two games is a four-game stretch consisting of Maryland, Temple, Indiana, and Illinois.

Chris Oliver: Year One

September 14th, 2014 by Mike H. | Comments Off on Chris Oliver: Year One | Filed in Baseball, General, Phillies, Sports, TalkSportsPhilly, Twitter

Chris Oliver entered the draft ranked as a player projected as an early-to-mid second round pick, according to, based purely on projectability. A part of the Arkansas’ weekend rotation, Oliver already has a mid-90s fastball and a solid slider. In three years at Arkansas, Oliver’s walk rate always sat around 3.3 to 3.6 walks per nine. That may be the reason why Oliver ended up slipping from a second round pick to the fourth round.

  • NCAA (Arkansas): 93.1 IP, 1.11 WHIP, and 59:36 K:BB ratio
  • Gulf Coast League: 3.2 IP, 2.45 WHIP, and 4:3 K:BB ratio
  • Low A (Williamsport): 14.0 IP, 2.79 WHIP, and 6:20 K:BB ratio

Unfortunately, Oliver’s lack of control or consistent changeup lead to a high walk rate at both the collegiate and professional levels. At this point, he’s pretty much a lock to the start the 2015 season in Lakewood. If the control is there, he could be headed to Clearwater in the second half. If the control is lacking, he could bounce back and forth between Lakewood and Williamsport.
