Mogami and Hyuga are better hybrids. She was just a scout heavy cruiser.Which pop filter should you use?
Cant they give her ability to launch 3 planes at once (say a scouter, fighter and one of your choice) and call it a day. Basically, add some CV-like capability to the Tone. If it did then we wouldn't have Bismarck in the tech tree. Hood is a more famous ship than anything minus Enterprise or Bismarck, she is widely known by even people who have little knowledge of WWII.
Since Hood is not the namesake of the class, she is a fine Tier VII premium. The Admiral class with proposed refits would be on the battlecruiser tree however, Hood would just be a premium battleship.
Construction barely even started on the other 3. The proposed refits were specifically for Hood, because what little had been built of the rest of the class had been long since scrapped by 1941. Also Tirpitz having torps was only unique because she was sold as a premium before the German tech tree was implemented. It was obvious all along that a Scharnhorst class would be in the tree and bring more torps to the BB line.
Hood would be a premium as she sunk in 1941 and the Admiral class would appear as a Tier VII in the battlecruiser line with the proposed refits along the lines of Renown. I know you want Hood badly but it's not happening.
She won't be included on the battleship line and her sheer status almost relegates her to premium status.
Since we always use namesake ships for the tech tree and Hood belongs to the ADMIRAL class, the battlecruiser line would just be called Admiral with the castle like superstructure and the proposed refit. The Royal Navy doesn't always name classes after a ship. Often they name the class after a common theme used for the names of all ships in the class.
As was the case with the Admiral class battlecruisers: all were named after famous English admirals. There are already numerous examples of this in the Royal Navy cruiser line. Weymouth is from the 1910 Town class. Caledon is from the C class. Fiji is from the Crown Colony class.The biggest winners, of course, will be Mayweather and McGregor, who, win or lose, stand to earn hundreds of millions of dollars.

Vegas reveals the betting odds Contributed by Jordan Zakarin Sep 6, 2017 Share This Post Shared 2 Comments Once again, Lucasfilm has removed a director from a Star Wars film. After booting Chris Miller and Phil Lord from the Han Solo spinoff this summer, and sidelining Gareth Edwards for big reshoots and edits on last winter's Rogue One, the latest forsaken filmmaker is Colin Trevorrow, who will no longer be at the helm of the untitled Episode IX.
By now we know the drill: Lucasfilm releases a statement (or not, in the case of Edwards), fans speculate as trade reporters scramble for insight, and then a few days later, a new director is named. Now there's a new wrinkle in the process: During that speculating phase, people can put their money where their fan theories are by placing bets on who will fill the biggest job opening in the galaxy. Raphael Esparza works for Doc Sports and My Bookie, and lays out lines on not only sports, but pop culture events as well.

This week's game is a critical one, so much so that John Feinstein said if the Redskins don't win, their season is "basically over.
How to Watch: Redskins Kickoff airs at Noon on CSN Mid-Atlantic. The game is set to begin at 1:00 p. Odell Beckham Jr: The Rematch. Norman has expressed that he wants to solely cover Odell Beckham Jr and Beckham said he's more prepared for the matchup this year, and plans on maintaining his cool, but we'll have to wait until Sunday to see if that remains true. Talking to the media Wednesday, Cousins referenced the division title game last year against the Eagles as an example of staying level-headed under stress.
He's going to have to keep his word if the Redskins are to earn their first win of the season. In the first two games of the season, the Redskins ran the ball a lot less than expected - they have 29 total rush attempts for 137 yards. With Cousins struggling to complete passes, will the Skins attempt to run the ball more against the Giants.It can impact your memory, affect your ability to think clearly, and reduce your cognitive and learning skills.
A UK study found that people who spend a lot of time on social media are more likely to display negative personality traits such as narcissism. Snapping endless selfies, posting all your thoughts or details about your life can create an unhealthy self-centeredness, distancing you from real-life relationships and making it harder to cope with stress. We can use smartphones to fill every quiet moment and keep us entertained, up to date, and connected to friends and strangers alike.
But how much time is too much time to spend on a smartphone or other mobile device. However, there is no specific amount of time spent on your phone, or the frequency you check for updates, or the number of messages you send or receive that indicates an addiction or overuse problem.
You may need to use the Internet or email extensively for work, for example, or have to be on call for your job or as a family caregiver, or you may rely heavily on social media to keep in touch with faraway family and friends. Spending a lot of time connected to your phone only becomes a problem when it absorbs so much of your time it causes you to neglect your face-to-face relationships, your work, school, hobbies, or other important things in your life.
A common warning sign of smartphone or Internet addiction is experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you try to cut back on your smartphone use. Do you often absent-mindedly pass the time by using your phone even when there are better things to do.
Do you use your phone at all hours of the day and nighteven when it means interrupting other things. Do you use your phone while driving or doing other activities that require your focused attention. When you leave the house do you ALWAYS have your smartphone with you and feel ill-at-ease when you accidentally leave it at home.
When your phone buzzes do you feel an intense urge to check for texts, tweets, emails, updates, etc. Do you find yourself mindlessly checking your phone many times a day even when you know there is likely nothing new or important to see. Adapted from: Smartphone Abuse Test by Dr. David Greenfield, The Center for Internet and Technology Addiction.
There are a number of steps you can take to get your smartphone use under control. While you can initiate many of these measures yourself, an addiction is hard to beat on your own, especially when temptation is always within easy reach.
It can be all too easy to slip back into old patterns of usage. To help you identify your problem areas, keep a log of when and how much you use your smartphone for non-work or non-essential activities. There are specific apps that can help with this, enabling you to track the time you spend on your phone (see the Resources section below). Are there times of day that you use your phone more.
Are there other things you could be doing instead. The more you understand your smartphone use, the easier it will be to curb your habits and regain control of your time. Recognize the triggers that make you reach for your phone.Injuries again play a huge factor here, as the visiting Green Bay Packers are not only playing on a short week after a Monday game but won't have Aaron Rodgers on the field to counteract a borderline elite defense.
The Packers have now lost three in a row with Brett Hundley under center, who is up to one touchdown and four interceptions. Over the span, the Packers haven't scored more than 17 points in a game. The defense simply hasn't been able to compensateMonday's 30-17 loss to the Detroit Lions saw the eventual victors control possession for more than 36 minutes.
That's a big red flag the Bears won't have problems exploiting at home. The team is much better than its 3-5 record indicates after getting hot in the wake of switching to rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears have won two out of their last three, and their defense ranks 11th at 207. So it goes when a front seven boasts one of football's most dominant forces in Akiem Hicks and a budding elite pass-rusher like Leonard Floyd.
Defensive lineman Akiem Hicks has already tied a career high with seven sacks. Cornerback Kyle Fuller is actually looking like a first-round pick. It's a mismatch without Rodgers under center to swing the pendulum back in the other direction. Again, it's an odd season when you can bank on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10. The Jaguars get to beat up on the visiting 3-5 Los Angeles Chargers. As if the travel alone wasn't bad enough, the Chargers rank 31st while coughing up 135.
On the other end of the spectrum is a 5-3 Jaguars team atop the AFC North and boasting three wins over their last four outings, each a blowout.
And the rushing attack happens to be a strength thanks to rookie Leonard Fournette, who even after missing the team's last game has 596 yards and six touchdowns on a 4. Getting a 23-7 win against the Cincinnati Bengals with the team's best offensive piece missing speaks volumes to the firepower behind one of the league's most unexpected runs.
The defense is a big part of this with 35 sacks and 10 interceptions while allowing 14. This isn't meant to suggest the Chargers don't have a chance. But veteran Philip Rivers isn't going to have long to throw in the face of such a stout defensive front, and Fournette and the Jaguars shouldn't have a problem controlling the game flow and cruising to another win.

CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 24: Head coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers stands on the sidelines during the game against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on September 24, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. The adjustment in the line shows just that, the head-scratching response to the horrible performance by Ben Roethlisberger and company in Week 5.
The Steelers are still 3-2 and in control in the AFC North but they hardly look the part of AFC powerhouse. Meanwhile the Chiefs have picked up that mantle with ease, taking out playoff hopeful teams each and every week, from the Patriots and Texans in the AFC to the Redskins and Eagles in the NFC. However, the Steelers are the kryptonite, so to speak, for the Chiefs and present a challenge not to be overlooked. The Steelers have owned the Chiefs, including two wins just last year.
During the regular season, Pittsburgh put over 40 points up on the vaunted Chiefs defense, including five touchdown passes for Roethlisberger. In the playoffs, the Chiefs lost to the Steelers despite not giving up a single touchdown in an upset win for the Steelers.You've read all your free articles this month.

The Road Atlas that the company provides is a great asset. Hotels and guesthouses were of high quality and everywhere we went, the food was great.
The pre-booked excursions were very well-organized too. In general, we noticed that Nordic Visitor has an excellent network of hotels and guesthouses, and of companies for local excursions (glacier hike, whale watching, where, by the way, we got a great show by one whale). Thank you Alexandra and thank you Nordic Visitor. You are a great company to work with.
Too bad Nordic Visitor has no control over the Icelandic weather. My husband and I traveled through Nordic Visitor for a full circle Iceland Activity Tour. We could not have asked for a better trip. The wonderful reviews helped us decide to book with Nordic Visitor and I wanted to share the positives of our vacation planned through Nordic Visitor.
My husband and I had never traveled out of the United States before and wanted a trip that was well planned by locals. I feel that our tour allowed us to see much of the beautiful country.
Iceland in general, is a very travel friendly country and I recommend a trip there to anyone who appreciates vast interesting landscapes, friendly people, and a whole lot more.
Thank you Nordic Visitor for the wonderful vacation. This was a trip of a lifetime for us. All of the accommodations were great.
There was enough time in each day that we were never rushed to get to the next place. We were delighted by our Express Iceland tour, and the arrangements made on our behalf by Nordic Visitor. There were no unpleasant or unexpected surprises.
Our accommodations consistently exceeded our expectations. We very much enjoyed Iceland, and look forward to returning again in the future. We found the whole experience of visiting Iceland was very much smoothed by the prior arrangements and efficient service. It was good to visit the office and meet Alexandra and she was lovely and charming. The accommodation was largely excellent and the recommendations for our days were great.
We had one of the best holidays ever, and given that we were in a very unknown environment, did not speak the language and had no experience of driving on the 'wrong side' of the road in snowy conditions, we were very pleased that everything worked so well. Thanks to you all for the great service. The tour was very comprehensive and well organized. It exceeded my expectations.
I have visited over 50 countries. This trip was the best. My son, daughter and son in law are already talking about visiting Iceland.Ross previously served as President, Network Sales, CBS Television Network since October 2002, responsible for overseeing all sales for CBS Entertainment, Sports, Daytime, News and Late Night.
