    @ugarte - thought I’d clarify your post.  The VT / Campbell match was available on ACC Network Extra.  This is available through the  ESPN+ site / app but you need to have an ACC Network subscription through some other route (cable package, Hulu Live, YouTube TV, Etc.) to be able to watch programming on ACC Network Extra.  Something to watch out for.  It seemed to be available simply through ESPN+ but it was not. 

    fair - though i think you have to have cable to get espn+ at all, regardless of whether it is ACC, cornhole or cricket and i don't think i have ACC Extra in NYC.

    Just don't respond if you are out of your depth. The pretending to laugh thing is weird.

     look, since the same people who say that "race doesn't matter and noticing race is the real racism" also tend to say that the disparate outcomes in all sorts of areas are because of some social pathology or what have you about the disadvantaged communities themselves i don't think it's a real mystery what the actual racist statement is. 

    you are as deep as a puddle.

  3. is there a bigger falloff from starter to backup than dake to balfour? i will say that balfour had some decent moves over the course of losing every match but hoo boy. 

    takeaway from this tournament is that the kids are coming to snatch gwiz's crown. parris should have won both matches and steveson did win his, comfortably. i also don't think steveson ducked parris; tony nelson isn't a guy you bring to watch the action.

    Got my answer.  No decision on liability and damages yet, but the judge lifted the injunction and declined Flo's request to extend the non-compete which has now expired. 

    if the non-compete expired what did the injunction cover? terms like "crystal ball" and "big board"?

    Without seeing the sampling procedures/criteria, I couldn’t tell you whether their samples are valid but I do know they were small. 30-40K in the samples and only 100-180, respectively, contracted COVID. Of the 170 who contracted COVID in the Pfizer trial, 162 were in the placebo group and 8 had received the vaccine. The data isn’t public, only high level overviews of the findings.

    I may be confusing trials, but I think I read that even the people who were immunized and contracted the virus, it was a relatively mild case, which is also a good sign for efficacy, right? It sounds like an indication that the vax helps prime the body's natural immune response and keeps the virus somewhat under control.

    Then what is your point of even responding to Janderson133??  Just to try and portray some sort of intelligence by using big words?  To be a troll?  Or would you care to provide your opinion on the matter?

    I think the answer here is not to "trust" China or to take what they say as gospel or to even prefer, broadly, China's approach to government. It is to ask "is there value, in limited cases, of more direct government action." In cases where the government response was aggressive - not only China but also, for example, Vietnam - the virus was easier to contain. This doesn't necessarily reflect an endorsement of that governmental approach in all cases but rather as a possible indication that during an emergency there might be some value in top-down rules rather than reliance on the good will of your neighbors (especially when numbers are increasing rapidly, suggesting less-than-neighborly compliance). In Sweden and South Dakota, jurisdictions that embrace theories of herd immunity and maximum personal choice with respect to masks and distancing, the results have been catastrophic. Places that enforce measures briefly but then relax them at the first sign of improvement soon see a rebound (like NYC, where I am). I think there's decent evidence from experience that stricter rules in the short term pay long term dividends.

    Is that a reasonable middle ground that won't get me asked if I want to move to Guangzhou?

    Since I don’t know how to put up a poll, I’ll ask this, feel free to respond:

    Do any of you currently work in, or have a degree in any of the following fields:

    public health, virology, biostatistics, genetics, epidemiology, molecular biology, medicine?


    No but that's why i mostly focus on law and the parts of the "debate" on what CDC and various health departments say in their public statements. 

    Such as "Alito is insane and unprincipled" and "the reason the Michigan Supreme Court ruled against Whitmer is because she is a Democratic Governor with a Republican Supreme Court."

    That type of talk is typical leftist dismissiveness. 

    Your comment here is precisely what Elise Slotkin(D) Michigan was speaking about this past week when she offered that Democrats "talk down at people" instead of "talking to people". 

    i read everything he writes. he is insane and unprincipled. i'm sorry if that disappoints you to hear.

    If they can make AHamilton wear a mask because of Covid 19 then they'll someday force him to wear a mask due to the Flu. Then it will be the common cold. It will never end. Then everyone will realize this was never about Covid in the first place, it was about control and power. 

    If this were truly about Covid and the political left was truly concerned and righteous in their belief of these rules and regulations they put in place, then the leadership wouldn't break every rule they set for us little people and do so in plain sight of us all. Your liberty is being eroded every day this crap goes on. Wake up. 

    The first part is paranoid weirdness. What do seat belts really restrain? MY FREEDOM, MAN!!!

    The second part, about the hypocrisy of the elites, is more on point except that you draw the wrong conclusion from it. Yes, the elites flaunting the rules that they hand down to the rabble is intensely annoying. But that doesn't mean that they don't think the rules are pointless or that there's a sECreT AgENdA at work, it's that they don't care because they are ultimately selfish and consider themselves untouchable. What you are mad at, then, is a mirror.
