LOS ANGELES — The Warriors’ championship fabric started to tear.The Warriors labored without Stephen Curry to guide them because of an injury. The Warriors struggled without Kevin Durant after fouling out.

It would be better if these words, outcomes really, were reversed. If you could get the end, and then contribute more, without having to do the work required of contribution, as the final two-word pairing is how you will measure success in the end.You can do something to contribute to the causes you care about now. However, that contribution won’t be the most substantial or most meaningful contribution you might make. So, we start at the beginning . . .Be more. As far as I have been able to discern, no human being has ever reached their full potential. It might not even be possible. The fact that our brains have more potential neural connections than particles in the Universe seems to point towards a potential that may be limitless. The closer you move towards your full potential, the more you can do.Do more. If you are capable of more, it naturally follows that you can contribute more. Bigger, bolder, and better outcomes equal a greater contribution, and it’s important to remember that you are only able to do more because you have worked on developing yourself, becoming something more.Have more. You might believe this means more money, and when you are more and do more, remuneration tends to follow closely behind. That said, money isn’t all that is contained in the words “have more.” You also have a greater capacity to contribute time and other resources, including your network of friends, business associates, and partners. Abundance in any or of all these resources allows for greater contributions.Contribute more. If there is a sin one may be unaware they are committing, it may be wasting their talent, failing to put forth the effort to reach their full potential. Getting these four ideas in the right order is what build the capacity to contribute more, helping more people, and making a bigger difference.If you want to contribute more, start becoming someone capable of making a greater contribution.

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) There will be some surrender cobras this year.The 2016 college football season may seem far off in the future, but in reality, it’s less than four months away. Coaches and players, of course, are already preparing for the 12 opponents on their schedules. The teams on the list you’re about to read are likely preparing a little harder than the rest, however.Every year, due to both conference affiliation and scheduling, some teams wind up having way more difficult schedules than their peers. It can be both a blessing and a curse. If you run through a tough schedule, you’ll likely be rewarded when bowl season comes around. If you struggle, you might not even qualify for the postseason.We’ve gone through and put together a list of what we think are the 15 hardest schedules in college football this upcoming season.

SASKATOON — Crews tasked with cleaning a Saskatchewan bridge are in for a dirty job.The City of Saskatoon says that over the last 50 years one of its bridges has accumulated nearly 350 tonnes of pigeon poop — which is roughly equal to 230 cars parked on the bridge.It says the feces adds unnecessary weight and the pigeon droppings contain uric acid which can damage concrete.The facelift also means the extermination of about 1,500 members of the feathered flock that makes the Sid Buckwold Bridge home.The city says relocating or displacing the birds is not recommended because they are likely to fly back or move into other private properties or civic spaces.A local wildlife advocate is disappointed and questions why alternatives can’t be found that would allow the birds to live.“In Saskatchewan, a very, very, very common response is if it pisses you off, shoot it,” says Jan Shadick, volunteer director of Living Sky Wildlife Rehabilitation.Shadick blames Saskatoon’s approach on a regional attitude towards so-called pesky wildlife.“Everybody’s getting really mad at the pigeons, but if you didn’t clean your house for 50 years, I’m going to guess it would probably be condemned.”In emails to The Canadian Press, a city spokesman says the bridge was designed with more than 30 cavities underneath, which make the structure rather cosy for pigeons to nest, but are difficult to reach.“The challenge has always been access to these areas. They are essentially inaccessible over the river and the most efficient plan was to wait until the bridge rehab project,” Mark Rogstad wrote.Clearing out the pigeons and their poop was set to begin this week. The city says once finished, it will take steps to deter the birds from renesting.Canadian cities take different approaches to dealing with pigeons.On other bridges in Saskatoon, the city uses mesh and barriers to prevent roosting and utilizes falcons around its waste-water treatment plant and landfill.Regina and Vancouver rely on pigeon spikes, protective netting or cages to keep pigeons off their facilities.Toronto and Calgary do not practise pigeon control.A spokeswoman for the city of Ottawa says there’s no bylaw for regulating wild animals on private property, but the city recommends that people animal-proof their homes.Shadick says she supports non-lethal ways to manage wildlife and believes if Saskatoon wants to be seen as an environmentally friendly, forward-thinking city it should rethink its plan.“The pigeons are simply doing what they do,” she says.“They’re living. They’re eating. They’re procreating. They’re being pigeons. They’re being birds.”— By Stephanie Taylor in ReginaThe Canadian Press
