    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Cross post from Positive news thread. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/05/28/863944333/antibody-tests-point-to-lower-death-rate-for-the-coronavirus-than-first-thought Early results show that not as deadly as originally feared (though still more deadly than the flu). Also some shout outs for Indiana and IU.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Another example is cancer. My wife's uncle had pancreatic cancer but ultimately passed "because" of a heart attack, but his COD was cancer because without him having cancer and being on chemotherapy, he would not have had a heart attack. I was reading an article yesterday stating that the reason most infectious disease scientists and doctors believe the numbers are low is because places were not counting deaths early on, February and March, as deaths caused or a result of that person having COVID. Those people "died" of something else and so they listed it as that.

    I think planning ahead and setting expectations now is better than the whiplash that happened this year. By setting the stage now - students, teachers, and parents can better plan what the next academic school year will look like.

    IUBB - 2020 Off-Season News

    I just remembered him yelling "F*** YOU" to TJD late last season.

    IUBB - 2020 Off-Season News

    I don't think it makes us better, he was a leading contributor to the team last year. I do see it as an opportunity for Race or Jerome to step up and contribute. Race being more of the bruiser and Jerome potentially adding some much needed scoring (especially from the perimeter). I have confidence they are up to the challenge. Thank you Justin! Kelley degree in three years is awesome and is a positive mark on our program! Best of luck to him!

    I would also blame politicians and the political climate in the US in furthering that divide.

    Book Thread

    I am an attorney for a hospital. One of my colleagues handles most of the employment contracts for physicians and was negotiating an employment contract for a youngish doctor (either our age or a bit older, so late 20s/early 30s) we were hiring. Her father ,who is a college professor (has a JD but not a practicing attorney), was the one who "negotiated" the employment contract with us. Apparently, he didn't add much in the way of legal negotiations and it was basically him being a helicopter parent. My friend couldn't believe that a DOCTOR still had parents that felt like they had to be involved with her FUTURE EMPLOYER. Apparently he said something along the lines of "someday she is going to have to do this herself". Uhhh, ya think? I would like to add that my parents had nothing to do with my employment negotiations (though several years of love and support to get me to that point).

    Even though we ended up losing the game, him going off on Kentucky in 2009 (my freshman year) was one of the coolest/highest points of that season (we sucked). He was famous on campus after that. Too bad he hurt his leg.

    Firearms

    Grew up in southern Indiana to family that didn't hunt or that was too much into shooting, so I never really got into gun ownership. It is funny, because in recent years my old man has been more into guns and now has an arsenal at his house now. I bought a Traeger second hand from a buddy a couple of weeks ago ($100!) and have really enjoyed it. I have only done pork shoulder and a whole chicken, but I have plans for salmon and brisket in the near future. Learned the hard way that placement of the meat is still really important and to check temp on all sides. Part of the meat was at 195 and the side away from the burner was at about 160. Turned it around and got the other side to temp. It was still really good but glad I made that mistake with the $15 pork shoulder and not a brisket.

    Don't have an issue with his comments if they are becuase of Nojel. If he is insinuating that Haarms, who got a degree and played his heart out for you, is somehow not a "Boilermaker" because he elected to take advantage of the graduate transfer rule (something that Purdue has used to its advantage many times) and explore opportunities elsewhere, that makes him look like a hypocrite and a jackass.
