larry ross lottery winner

Winning Ticket Pays Off With Ecstasy, and Agony

He has been a hard-working swimming pool installer for years. But now, Larry Ross is up to his ears in something other than water.

He’s swimming in money.

The jocular, 47-year-old pool man from Utica, Mich., who Tuesday plunked down a $100 bill for a hot dog and 98 tickets to the biggest lottery jackpot in the nation’s history, came up a winner, emerging Friday with one of the two winning tickets to the $363-million multi-state Big Game lottery.

“We’re still in a stunned mode,” Ross said at a lighthearted news conference Friday, adding that he has not eaten or slept since realizing that he owned one of the winning tickets. “We’re humbled. It’s phenomenal.”

It took a while after Tuesday night’s drawing–anxiously awaited by millions of ticket-holding millionaire wannabes–before Ross realized that one of his tickets had the winning numbers: 33, 2, 1, 12, 37 and Big Money Ball 4.

He bought the ticket–only at the urging of his wife, Nancy–at Mr. K’s Party Shoppe in a strip mall about 20 miles north of Detroit. Then he wrote down the numbers incorrectly on the night of the drawing. And he did not check his tickets until Wednesday morning.

“I woke up the next morning [and] the tickets were on the counter,” he said. “I happened to turn on the TV and the guy I bought the tickets from was on the TV. I said: ‘This is just too freaky.’ ”

‘I Started Doing the Lottery Dance’

After looking at the winning ticket, Ross concluded that the numbers matched–but he did not notice that the ticket also had the bonus “money ball” number until his wife pointed it out.

“Jesus, they match!” he told his wife. “I invented a new dance. I started doing the lottery dance.”

Now the enormity of his good fortune has hit home. The hefty, mustachioed Ross appeared giddy and just a bit teary-eyed as he stood before the cameras with his wife, sons Ian, 21, and Eric, 25, and daughter, Shannon, 12.

“You have the ecstasy of winning and then you start realizing the agony of what might happen,” Ross said. “You’ve got security problems now. You think about your family, who’s at risk. We’re not in a secure neighborhood. We don’t have security like rich people have.”

But now Ross is one of the “rich people.” He and his family will receive a lump-sum cash payment–some $90 million before taxes. They turned down the option of taking their winnings in annual installments totaling $181.5 million over 26 years.

A second winning Big Game ticket holder has yet to be identified. Lottery officials said that the other winning ticket was sold at a gas station in Lake Zurich, Ill., about 30 miles northwest of Chicago. Whoever owns the ticket has not contacted Illinois lottery officials.

Partly because of concerns about security, the Ross family already is planning to leave their four-bedroom ranch-style house in a middle-class, lakefront community. Not that their neighbors can blame them.

“If I had that kind of money, I’d move too,” said John Leysen, 58, whose house is across the street from the Rosses.

Once-Quiet Neighbors Speaking Up Now

Leysen, who has lived there for nearly three decades, said that it is the sort of place where neighbors know one another but do not interact much. He recognized Ross on television as the same man he has seen driving a gold pickup truck around the neighborhood. “This is a subdivision where the garage door goes up and then it goes down,” Leysen said. “You don’t see much more than that of your neighbors.

“I’ve never spoken to them, [but] I’d like to say I was their best friend.”

Another neighbor, who asked not to be identified, said Ross seems like a nice person who deserves his good fortune. But she took mild offense at his description of their neighborhood. “He shouldn’t have said we’re not a secure neighborhood. We’re a nice neighborhood.”

Then she added that perhaps Ross would be better off with a larger house. “He’s got an old boat and car and a lot of junk all around his house.”

Ross said that he plays the lottery infrequently and was so unfamiliar with the system that, asked whether he wanted a lump sum or annuity, he did not quite understand the difference. He initially chose the annuity but, after meeting with financial planners and an attorney, he decided on the lump-sum payment.

Although he had been warned about the attention he would get from the media, he was overwhelmed initially when he confronted television cameras as he arrived at the Michigan lottery office to claim his winnings.

“When he came in here he was like, ‘Wow!” said Stephani Schlinker, a spokeswoman for the Michigan lottery commission. “People know they’re coming into a lot of money, but they don’t comprehend it.”

On the Wish List: A Purple Jaguar

Ross said that his newfound wealth does not mean that he will leave his swimming pool customers high and dry. He is planning to turn the business over to his sons. And Nancy Ross hopes to do charity work, although the family has not yet decided which charities they will help. “We will put the money to use for something good,” Larry Ross said.

Meantime, the family is drawing up a shopping list of must-haves: That secure new house. A boat. Their first summer vacation in 13 years. For Larry Ross, retirement and a new job “playing golf.”

And–oh, yes–something his wife has always wanted: a purple Jaguar.

Lottery: Michigan family celebrates its newfound wealth but also quickly assesses the cost of winning. ]]>

Charles Pick

Charles Pick, who has died of a brain tumour aged 82, was one of that rare breed of publishers who seem to operate by instinct. He turned writers as diverse as Graham Greene, JB Priestley, Olivia Manning, Isak Dinesen, Monica Dickens – the first person he asked to write a book (One Pair Of Hands, 1939) – Paul Gallico, Richard Gordon, the young John le Carré, the even younger Michael Holroyd and Wilbur Smith into household names.

His career was a mix of high style and parsimony. He loved smoked salmon and champagne, the Connaught restaurant, where Graham Greene, he said, always ordered Irish stew, Glyndebourne, the Savile Club, and custom-made suits from Savile Row. Yet his attitude to staff salaries and authors’ advances was, at best, the result of his father going bankrupt when Charles was 10, leaving his wife, two sons and daughter to fend for themselves.

At prep school, Charles sat at a desk carved with the name of the previous incumbent, William Heinemann. At 16, he went to work for Victor Gollancz. Family connections ensured that his name was on a list of eligible young men invited to wealthy Anglo-Jewish soirees. But the mothers of daughters in Portman Square would have been vexed had they known of his courtship (decorously, by letter) of Miss Beryl Hobbs, of Hove, whose mother owned the popular St Catherine’s Lodge hotel and whom he later married.

After the second world war, spent in Burma, India and on Mountbatten’s far-eastern war crimes commission, Pick joined the firm of Michael Joseph, where he cultivated mid-list authors beloved of libraries and middle-brow readers. He suavely initiated many a young editor, besides myself, into the complex rites of the publishing lunch and had a reputation for wiliness, cultivating a manner best described as opaque.

At Heinemann, he disapproved of the snooty attitude of Penguin Books to a TV tie-in, The Forsyte Saga, which sold more than 1m copies, the first TV series to influence sales. More seriously, he was deeply suspicious of the leftwing orthodoxy of Penguin editorial, which he had seen revealed in 1967 when he had bullied Randolph and his son Winston Churchill into writing The Six Days War in little more than the time it had taken to fight it . When Charles found himself up before an anti-Israel establishment that did not want to publish the book, he went – scandalously, we thought – over editorial heads, direct to Allen Lane. Penguin published, and had an instant bestseller.

Charles’s career can be seen as a series of valiant attempts to preserve traditional hands-on publishing from the threat of monopoly takeover. When the Canadian newspaper tycoon Roy Thomson bought the company which owned Michael Joseph, Charles, with co-directors Peter Hebdon and Roland Gant, resigned on principle. What could a news paperman know about books? An attempt to buy Jonathan Cape fell at the last hurdle, and in 1962 Charles went to Heinemann. But, in his 23-year reign over the powerful Heinemann Group, that too was subjected to a series of takeovers, finally selling to Hamlyn’s Octopus.

Charles had welcomed Hamlyn and together they published Heinemann’s most popular writers in the brilliantly successful omnibus editions. But he soon became disillusioned with Octopus’s manner of dealing with his cherished authors.

Many of the new publishing practices were anathema to him. But he certainly approved of Macmillan’s recent and successful handling of Wilbur Smith, and admired the new browser-friendly bookshops, which – as he saw it – had returned to a bookselling style he had last seen in the 30s, when people played chess seated in the windows of bookshops in Cecil Court.

Resourceful as ever, as an agent Charles dedicated his final years to making Wilbur Smith into an international bestseller and to looking after his wife, Beryl, through nine years of decline. He leaves a daughter and a son.

NBA Draft Lottery: Schedule, odds and how it works

From NBA.com Staff

Update: The 2020 NBA Draft Lottery will take place on Thursday, Aug 20 (8:30 PM, ESPN).

The NBA Draft Lottery determines the order of selection for the NBA Draft. Here’s how it works:

What teams will participate in the 2020 Draft Lottery?

The 14 teams that did not make the 2020 postseason are eligible for the Lottery. Below is the odds for teams in NBA Draft Lottery 2020 presented by State Farm.

Team > 2020 Lottery Odds

Golden State > 14.00%

San Antonio > 2.00%

New Orleans > 1.20%

* This pick may be conveyed to Boston

Which team will get the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft? 👀 pic.twitter.com/i4MNxYc70D

What is the format for the Draft Lottery?

The NBA Board of Governors approved changes to the lottery system on Sept. 28, 2017.

Under the revamped format, the NBA Draft Lottery will ensure that the team with the worst record will receive no worse than the fifth pick. Under the pre-2019 system, the team with the worst record would pick no lower than fourth.

The new system will level the odds at the top of the NBA Draft Lottery so that the teams with the three worst regular-season records will each have a 14 percent chance of winning the lottery. In the pre-2019 structure, the top seed had a 25 percent of winning the lottery, the second seed had a 19.9 percent and the third seed had a 15.6 percent.

The odds for the remaining participants in the 14-team lottery will be reduced gradually after the top three. For instance, the difference in lottery odds between the first three seeds (14 percent) and the fourth seed (12.5 percent) will be 1.5 percent. The difference between the fourth seed and the fifth seed (10.5 percent) will be 2 percent, and the difference between the fifth seed and the sixth seed (9 percent) will be 1.5 percent.

After drawings are conducted for the first four picks of the NBA Draft, the other lottery teams will continue to pick in inverse order of their regular-season record.

How specifically does it work?

The 2020 NBA Draft Lottery will be held on Thursday, Aug. 20. ESPN will air the results live at 8:30 p.m. ET.

The 36th annual NBA Draft Lottery will determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2020 NBA Draft. Drawings will be conducted to determine the first four picks in the NBA Draft. The remainder of the “lottery teams” will select in positions five through 14 in inverse order of their 2019-19 regular-season records.

The actual lottery procedure will take place in a separate room just before ESPN’s national broadcast. A media member, NBA officials and representatives of the accounting firm of Ernst & Young will be in attendance for the drawings.

Fourteen ping-pong balls numbered 1 through 14 will be placed in a lottery machine. There are 1,001 possible combinations when four balls are drawn out of 14, without regard to their order of selection. Before the lottery, 1,000 of those 1,001 combinations will be assigned to the 14 participating lottery teams.

The lottery machine is manufactured by the Smart Play Company, a leading manufacturer of state lottery machines throughout the United States. Smart Play also weighs, measures and certifies the ping-pong balls before the drawing.

The drawing process occurs in the following manner: All 14 balls are placed in the lottery machine and they are mixed for 20 seconds, and then the first ball is removed. The remaining balls are mixed in the lottery machine for another 10 seconds, and then the second ball is drawn. There is a 10-second mix, and then the third ball is drawn. There is a 10-second mix, and then the fourth ball is drawn. The team that has been assigned that combination will receive the No. 1 pick. The same process is repeated with the same ping-pong balls and lottery machine for the second through fourth picks.

If the same team comes up more than once, the result is discarded and another four-ball combination is selected. Also, if the one unassigned combination is drawn, the result is discarded and the balls are drawn again. The length of time the balls are mixed is monitored by a timekeeper who faces away from the machine and signals the machine operator after the appropriate amount of time has elapsed.

Darrington Hobson, a partner in the accounting firm of Ernst & Young, oversees the entire lottery process and stuffs and seals the envelopes before bringing them to the studio for the broadcast. The announcement of the lottery results will be made by Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum.

Representatives from each participating team will join virtually. Neither the Deputy Commissioner nor the virtual team representatives will be informed of the lottery results before the envelopes are opened.

The team whose logo is in the last envelope opened will have the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, to be held on Friday, Oct. 16.

The teams will be represented on-stage by the following:

Team > Representative, Title

  • Atlanta Hawks > Jami Gertz, Atlanta Hawks Ownership Group
  • Charlotte Hornets > Devonte’ Graham, Player
  • Chicago Bulls Arturas > Karnisovas, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations
  • Cleveland Cavaliers > Brad Daugherty, Cleveland Cavaliers Alumni
  • Detroit Pistons > Troy Weaver, General Manager
  • Golden State > Warriors Stephen Curry, Player
  • Memphis Grizzlies > Elliot Perry, Memphis Grizzlies Minority Owner/Director of Player Support
  • Minnesota Timberwolves > D’Angelo Russell, Player
  • New Orleans Pelicans > Trajan Langdon, General Manager
  • New York Knicks > Leon Rose, President
  • Phoenix Suns > James Jones, General Manager
  • Sacramento Kings > De’Aaron Fox, Player
  • San Antonio Spurs > Peter J. Holt, Chairman
  • Washington Wizards > Rui Hachimura, Player

What are the odds for each team in the Draft Lottery?

The changes implemented for 2020 will result in the following odds for teams starting with the reverse order of regular season record.

Team > Odds at No. 1 Pick

What about picks 15-60?

The Draft selections for the remainder of the first round (No. 15-30) and the entire second round (No. 30-60), are determined by reverse order of regular season record. Each NBA team gets one selection in the first round and one selection in the second round.

Who won the NBA Draft Lottery last year?

The New Orleans Pelicans won the Lottery in 2019. They would ultimately use that pick to select Zion Williamson.

What is the history of the NBA Draft Lottery and when was it first used?

— 1966-1984: From 1966 through 1984, the NBA team that finished with the worst record in each conference participated in a coin flip. The team that won the coin flip received the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft. That team that lost the coin flip received the No. 2 overall pick. The remaining teams picked in inverse order of their regular-season records.

— June 1984: The NBA Board of Governors voted to adopt a lottery system among the non-playoff teams (or the teams holding their picks through trades) to determine their order of selection in the first round of the NBA Draft, beginning in 1985. Teams would pick in inverse order of their regular-season records in the second round (or, before the draft was reduced to two rounds in 1989, in all succeeding rounds).

— April 1986: Under a procedural change adopted by the Board of Governors, the lottery would determine the order of selection for the first three teams only. The remaining non-playoff teams would select in inverse order of their regular-season records. Therefore, the team with the worst record would be assured of picking no worse than fourth, the team with the second-worst record no worse than fifth and so on.

— October 1989: The NBA Board of Governors adopted a weighted system, beginning with the 1990 NBA Draft Lottery, which included 11 teams due to expansion (Charlotte and Miami joined the NBA for the 1988-89 season and Minnesota and Orlando followed in 1989-90). The team with the worst regular-season record received 11 chances at the top pick (out of a total of 66), the second-worst team got 10 chances and the team with the best record among the non-playoff teams was given one chance.

— November 1993: The NBA Board of Governors approved a modification that, effective with the 1994 NBA Draft Lottery, increased the chances of the teams with the worst records to win one of the top three picks while decreasing the chances of the teams with the best records. The new system increased the chances of the team with the worst record of drawing the first pick from 16.7 percent to 25 percent, and it decreased the chances of the team with the best record among lottery teams from 1.5 percent to 0.5 percent.

— October 1995: The NBA Board of Governors increased the number of teams participating in the lottery from 11 to 13 to account for the addition of expansion teams Toronto and Vancouver. Starting in 1996, the team with the worst record would continue to have a 25 percent chance of winning the first pick. Teams two through six would have slightly fewer chances, team seven would have the same chances and teams eight through 12 would have slightly more chances. The number of chances for team 13 did not change.

— 2004: The 2004 NBA Draft Lottery increased to 14 teams with the addition of the Charlotte Bobcats. However, as part of their expansion agreement, the Bobcats were locked into the fourth position in the 2004 NBA Draft and therefore did not have a chance to receive other picks in the lottery.

— September 2017: The NBA Board of Governors approved changes to the lottery system effective with the 2019 NBA Draft, reducing the odds so that the teams with the three worst records would share the same chance (14 percent) of receiving the No. 1 overall draft pick. The odds for the remaining participants in the 14-team lottery would be reduced gradually after the top three. Drawings would be conducted for the first four picks of the NBA Draft. The other lottery teams would continue to pick in inverse order of their regular-season record.

The Win Now Matrix: Key to Guaranteed Wins

Using the power of mathematics to win hockey games

By Daniel C. Bryndle

The Key to Guaranteed Wins in Hockey Games

I wrote the book “A Fly on the Wall in the NHL” in 1994 as a gift to family and friends and to those that were interested in the NHL’s “middle years,” from 1970-1983. It is simply a recounting of the most memorable and influential moments I spent fitting players for hockey equipment in dressing rooms around the National Hockey League and the AHL.

During that time, I sat through their practice sessions to wait for the team I was assigned to fit. I would watch the greatest shooters of that time at practice, and get to speak to some of the game’s greatest coaches. Having said that, I am an “outlier” in the process; someone who was there but unnoticed. By strict definition, an outlier is “one who is situated away from the main body or system.” I wasn’t part of the team or league, even as I experienced the intensity of the teams, players, and coaches.

That experience of sitting and watching those teams, along with my burning desire to understand how the great shooters scored so much, contributed in part to the development of the Win Now Matrix for the NHL. I quickly learned that this is the key to guaranteed wins in hockey.

The explanation of the matrix, and what it does, comes after considerable self-study in applied analytics in both business and sports. I have modified the four pillars of personal growth that I featured in my book “Win Now for Life,” to winning immediately in both the NHL and all ice hockey games.

The 4 Pillars of Personal Growth

  1. Significant high-percentage data-point capture
  2. Data stacking
  3. Applied captured momentum
  4. Safety

Through trial and error, I have come to understand how to apply these four pillars to ensure immediate wins in the NHL. The four pillars in concert applied in any game can create up to a 95% winning outcome, with up to 28 data points stacked.

Here is an example of how the Win Now Matrix benefited my grandson’s youth hockey team. The Bantam hockey league in Upstate New York was structured like the NHL, where in the playoffs the best team plays the worst team until only two teams remain. I had attended every practice and asked the coach before the playoffs what the chances were for his team to win it all. His answer surprised me: “We won’t win. The number one team in the league has scored twice as many goals as we have during the season. We are good defensively, but we can’t score.”

Without hesitation I told the coach (who was a local high school history teacher) about my theory. I then explained that the number one scoring play in the history of the NHL, from the number one scoring player in the history of the league, comes down to one play: the Peek-a-Boo.

It works this way: When the players have the puck in their zone, they should go straight toward the goalie like they intend to shoot the puck and then take the puck behind the net. There are five ways to score:

The 5 Ways to Score for Guaranteed Wins

  1. Tuck the puck in the right corner
  2. Tuck the puck in the left corner
  3. Make a pass to the right wing
  4. Make a pass to the left wing
  5. Pass to the center

The players and coaches on the other teams will not know how to react. You will catch them by surprise, and the players will be confused as well. The play is called the Peek-a-Boo because the player with the puck behind the net makes the goalie look over his shoulder to see where they are with the puck. The player with the puck then goes to the other side and in effect says “peek-a-boo” to the goalie.

As it turned out, my grandson’s team made it to the finals and it was a very big deal in our little town. The stage was set: The players’ names had been placed above every locker; the stands were full; the announcer introduced every player; and the theme from Rocky was piped across the system at the game’s start. It was indeed the highest-scoring team in the league they were playing, with twice as many goals scored all season compared to my grandson’s team.

His team won that game in the second overtime and that coach’s son scored on the Peek-a-Boo, tucking the puck in on the goalie’s right corner. The coach saw me in the stands and motioned for me to come onto the ice with the team to celebrate. As I approached him, he high-fived me and said that was all they practiced since I told him about it. It was a major celebration and you can well imagine how excited those boys were at the local pizza place. No doubt this was a prime example of using the Win Now Matrix as the key to guaranteed wins.

With that said, the introduction to the Win Now Matrix began back in 2001 with a Stanley Cup series in Buffalo, New York, with my hometown team. The most recent application was last year (2019), in the Stanley Cup series with the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Columbus Blue Jackets. In both cases the winning teams that were supposed to lose won—and won big. The losing teams have searched for answers as to what happened. One team’s goalie’s dream season came to a crashing end in Buffalo. The other team’s owner said he felt his team would never recover from that collapse, without an explanation. Well, here is one explanation—if you can believe it.

The first data point that was offered to the NHL Stanley Cup Playoff teams I contacted was the league stats on scoring distance. Eighty percent of all goals in the NHL are scored within 20 feet of the net space. The key to guaranteed wins means increasing your team’s scoring chances. Make sure every player that shoots on net is aware of that, and should only shoot inside that space or when another player is inside that space. Using the same ratio, I suggested that all of the goals scored on any goalie are scored in that relative space. I then recommended the team look at similar ratios in penalty minutes relative to games won, and so on with high-percentage events, both offensively and defensively. By stacking those ratios, and expecting momentum, teams would control the game.

The final pillar is Safety: No unnecessary penalties. No fighting. Play rope a dope. It’s all true; every word of it. The teams won immediately.

I will continue to introduce this approach to select teams that are interested, when the Stanley Cup is eventually played this year. As the coronavirus continues to take a regrettable toll on people’s lives around the world, a high-scoring and well-played Stanley Cup series by underdog teams may help us all feel that life is returning to normal, and that there is an opportunity for any team in the playoffs to win it all. And that goes for hockey played at any level.

To increase your team’s scoring chances, every player must be aware of the 4 pillars of the Win Now Matrix. It’s the key to guaranteed wins in hockey games. ]]>
