    Sorry. My post was meant to be interpreted in the past tense, an evolutionary scenario well before the advent of milk's mass production , vitamin pills, or Africans living nearer to the north pole. Nature made various accommodations eons ago prior to the evolution of nation-states or science and technology.

    Maybe this isn't taught at Cornell, but light skinned people thrive at higher latitudes as there is less direct sunlight and consequently less need for protective melanin in skin chemistry. This allows for better absorption of vitamin D which aids in the conversion of calcium into bone structure. Eskimos are heavily covered from the cold, and from the sun, which prevents vitamin D absoption.  Though not naturally present in most foods, vitamin D occurs heavily in whale blubber to make up the difference.  Equatorial people have developed darker skin from the increase in melanin which naturally acts to filter and protect from burning by increasing the absoption of harmful rays as well as prevention of overdosing from vitamin D. Melanin is to brown and black skin as carotin is to oriental or yellow skin. Note also that dark skinned people have pink palms and bottoms of feet due to no sun exposure and so these areas cannot be protected by melanin or carotin. There is also a counterpart to this in the darkening of woods from the northern white pines to equatorial ebony black. In short, there are no races or classes of people. We're all of the same family; we just look different and looks can deceive.

    Cooch1 got a reaction from HurricaneWrestling2 in The Man Who Beat Dan Gable -- Larry Owings Documentary   
    The first inaugural , 1969 USWF (now USA Wrestling) tournament was held at Northwestern's McGaw Hall, Evanston. Owings won both Greco and Freestyle @ 149 lbs. Right after the individual champions photo in the middle of the mat, Larry came up to me pointing and said, " I'm gonna beat Gable." That was April, 1969. Eleven months later, in the very same place, he did it. It was not a light afterthought he made during the 1970 season. He was angling for revenge. I awarded the medals to the six AAs and watched, as everybody did, Gable openly weeping on the podium.

    If football/basketball can't bring money in, where do other sports get it? The world is going into a reset of sanitation and housecleaning. About all you'll get is the basics; food, shelter and mail-order clothing. This is WWIII.
    First things first. Hope for a cure,  mass-produce it; hope it lasts; hope there's no mutation-and-repeat.

    1978 finals pinned by Churella, then beaten by one point in dual meet by Dick Knorr Oregon S. who he ultimately pinned in NCAA finals, 1979. He was known for using a half nelson off a whizzer or bear hug from same position. Many pins came in 1st period. His nick name was "bruiser" and the move was locally known as the "steel strap."

    You're right about the difficulty of a pin these days. My only point is why make it harder with the tech acting as a shiny distraction...as currently defined.  
    A pin is a more surprising climax; a techfall is an anti-climax everybody sees coming down the stretch.  no surprise

    The only way Kemmerer can continue to beat Hall is to stay on the attack and never get discouraged. His conditioning (and now confidence ) is good; all he has to do is stay on the attack and force errors and fatigue Hall. If he doesn't stay on this path Hall will eat him up.

    Cooch1 got a reaction from trendkillgts in Can you blame people for having a hard time supporting this guy?   
    Socialism = government runs the show.
    Capitalism = private sector runs it.
    Reality = Both are running it; capitalism can't succeed w/o government help, i.e., tax-breaks, writeoffs, grants, subsidies, and favorable legislation of all sorts (See New Deal).
    The big and most important difference is capitalism's respect for individuality and initiative.
