DETROIT LAKES – For the first time under head coach Brett Maass, the Detroit Lakes boys basketball team played a game decided by one possession. Despite a circus-like final minute, the Lakers (6-4) beat Fergus Falls (4-5) 66-65 to win their second straight game. Jared Rubado / Detroit Lakes Tribune"They're competitors," Detroit Lakes head coach Brett Maass said. Fergus Falls forced a turnover at halfcourt before Detroit Lakes junior Brandton Marsh recorded a chase-down block on the glass. His front end of a one-and-one attempt clanked off the rim and rolled toward the Detroit Lakes bench.

Nielsen added with the district’s purpose to create champions in life, the benefits of the activities spill over, resulting in a stronger team mentality. Nielsen reviewed the fall sports participation numbers, dating back from the 2016-17 school year to the current 2022-23 season. Nielsen said the program numbers are climbing again with good participation numbers in the summer youth leagues. Nielsen noted the tennis program took a dip during the current season as there was no middle school program last fall.3 months ago Detroit Lakes Tribune

Driverless car development sets ablaze a bonfire of billionsAutonomous vehicle companies and suppliers have collectively spent around $75 billion developing self-driving technology, with scant sign of meaningful revenue emerging from robo-car services after all that cash incineration. Cruise, owned by General Motors, raised money at a roughly $30 billion valuation early last year. Many of these companies raised tens of billions of dollars long before their technology was proven or their businesses came close to being self-sustaining. Startup Kodiak Robotics raised $30 million in private capital this week and ran its freight trucks 8,000 miles from Texas to Florida. While there was a test driver at the wheel, the human ceded to the robot 94% of the time, Kodiak CEO and founder Don Burnette said in an interview.3 months ago Detroit News
