WAYNESBORO, Pa. - When Autumn Phillips began figure skating in third grade, the 17-year-old had no idea she one day would win a medal in the 2007 State Games of America. "I don't really know why (my brother, Kyle, and I) started ice skating - my mom just asked us if we wanted to skate," said Phillips, who is the daughter of Niles and Dawn Phillips of Waynesboro. When Phillips first began figure skating, she said she quickly moved up the skill levels. "You start to learn in skate levels whenever you are younger," she said.

Worse, many pundits doubled down, proclaiming that machine could never beat man in the art of tea-leaf reading, taking specific aim at the steam-powered hammer of Nate Silver and his 538 forecasting model, which digests polling and economic statistics and spits out projected election results. Before the election, Silver was subject to intense criticism from those bosom buddies, the mainstream media and the Republican Party.
