Why well because people are cheating: MIT and micro-sensors making progress, Virtual Keyboards, smart dust:
Student have been using them under their finger nails to count cards in the CT Indian casinos and the sensors are wired to their watches, displaying the results, pretend I did not tell you that. I refuse to reveal sources. Each time certain cards are played they tap out with their fingers on the table, using certain fingers for certain numbers such as 1's, 3's, 5's and 10. A combination allows the addition to the nearest number. The other hand is used for Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces. Very clever, just imagine how rich Gates would be if he had that system to augment his card counting abilities in his room at Harvard?
Moral of the Story? Never play cards with a Micro-Sensor Research Student at MIT and as per this article Berkeley either. Gray Davis signed into legislation a bill, which allows Indian Casinos in CA to grow and have more slots. So Berkeley students will not have to go up to Reno to score on the casinos there. Meanwhile as the card counting games continue, Pit Bosses are hiring similar students to put sensors on the table to catch people tapping and more remote hidden video cameras to catch cheaters. You cannot regulate morality can you. Not with the casinos, with the public out to make fast buck, not with the politicians, not with judges or lawyers.
So why are we trying to do this with our businessmen who provide jobs? Seems as if the problem starts in the first grade when Junior tries to steal a candy bar, better watch moms and catch them when they are young and explain integrity.

Handicapping the NFL Pre-season
It never ceases to amaze me just how many sports bettors pass when it comes to wagering on NFL preseason games, the reason probably has more to do with past preseason wagering losses than anything else, in the big picture most simply do not understand that you can not handicap the NFL preseason using the same methods that you use when handicapping NFL regular season games.You must approach NFL preseason handicapping from a totally different perspective and actually pretend that you are the head coach of the team that you are handicapping, as a head coach in preseason action you must have pre-defined goals of what you want to accomplish during the preseason.
