  1. I'd advise you to avoid processed soy or any overly-processed stuff (like Quorn meat substitutes, though they taste better than the soy stuff). Plant-based is only worthwhile if you're not eating a bunch of processed stuff.
  2. If I put my ballot in Dropbox, do I have to share the folder with the state election commission?
  3. He walks out on the interviewer. The video linked is 20 minutes, including intro and comments. They also interview the VP candidates. So, not too much Trump time in that one. It's by post date here. And then there's Boston . . . What is up with this "Your replies have been merged?" thing? Those were two separate topics that are now irrevocably mushed together. Make that three. No, four most likely.
  4. If you mean poverty levels in black communities, that one's a pretty straight line cause and effect.
  5. 60 Minutes posted both their candidate interviews on YouTube, for whoever's interested:
  6. Gotcha. And I'd say that no knock warrants do disproportionately affect blacks more than whites, because they disproportionately affect the poor, and poverty is disproportionate.
  7. This follows my last post. For clarification, was it meant as a counter argument?
  8. I think I see where you're going with this. In other words, I think I understand your SME-goal.
  9. I doubt it. This issue is far from new, and many white people have also been inadvertently killed. Yet it persists. Edit: Now, if you said ". . . if Breonna Taylor had been wealthy, " I'd agree.
  10. That's because the officers weren't ever going to be charged with murder or homicide. The boyfriend defended himself against what he perceived as home invaders. Nobody has an issue with him firing on the police as far as I've seen. However, the police are in the very mirror of his situation: They were fired upon by someone who they assumed was the subject of a no knock warrant. Such warrants are issued under the presumption that there's a danger of the subject fighting or destroying evidence if a normal warrant is served. The officers were completely justified in returning
  11. We use Teams at work. Most people don't have their video feed on. One thing that's superior to an old fashioned conference call is screen sharing of visual information, which we do all the time. We also conduct live training this way. I recently completed two FEMA classes via Zoom, for example.
  12. Death count isn't the only measure of risk at play. You have overwhelming of hospital resources and lasting side effects for survivors for two more. How do you measure the impact of a survivor who lives but has chronic fatigue and pain or other neurological problems for months afterward, possibly forever? Or the lasting effects of patients who recover but have systematic damage from being intubated for extended periods?
  13. You forgot the creepy hair sniffing for Biden. * I'm pretty sure you missed a metric butt-ton for Trump. *Not sure if best emoji, but it's the only one I saw with hair.
  14. I like the blurb. The title/premise is a good hook. I've bookmarked it, but don't know when I'll get some quality reading time in. I've got a new position and a move to deal with at the moment.
  15. Only 37% of ghosts and demons believe Americans are real.
  16. No, they control what the government can and cannot share with the public on their site. The government has vast resources and a multitude of ways to disseminate information besides Facebook.
  17. WTF. Nurse is supposed to swab you, not you. Kick the nurse in the shin next time.
  18. 10,000 mink are dead in Covid-19 outbreaks at US fur farms
  19. The Newsweek article has a more presidential caterpillar pic.
  20. Site should have been named "Hotter Otters"
