    You can't have a basketball forum without basketball. Looks like the GU Boards could be another casualty of the shutdown.

    Didn't see this yet, thanks for posting. They aren't modifying their tuition costs; It's an accounting trick. They show room, board, and travel that are eliminated with online classes as a "savings"...

    The genesis behind this is likely political having to largely do with Chinese Nationals. Once you have all international students leave the country, you have control over which students you allow...

    It is a can of worms. It doesn't matter how it is, only how it is perceived. People are really scared so no debate.

    There are a lot of people that see others not following lock down protocols as people that are directly threatening their lives. In other words, potential murderers.

    Set specific rules for the thread. I think a lot of us would like a dialogue and not a debate (which tend to get personal) but it may be more trouble than it's worth to moderate it.

    Federal law only takes precedence when it is specifically enumerated.

    I agree that they would be called upon to enforce federal law for a "temporary" period in the event of a disaster. In a...

    I see where your confusion is. When you say "unenforced quarantine", who do you think would enforce a national quarantine? We don't have a federal police force. We are a collection of states with...

    You keep confusing a lock down with martial law in all of your posts. What you keep calling for is a suspension of laws with military rule; that's martial law.

    I'm not sure what you read but you're arguing some other post. What does taking on personal risk have to do with polluting a public river? I didn't say "my choice" to put others at risk anywhere. I...

    Even if the metrics being used for measuring Covid-19's impact were correct (which they aren't) it's all just academic.

    I think this is well stated. We are so fundamentally different, we'll need our own solution.

    All countries are too different to compare (culture, climate, diet, geography, etc.). Apples to oranges comparison.

    Good points.

    I hope that resources and urgency were the things holding back vaccines for corona viruses.

    There's a level 4 bio-safety lab in Wuhan specializing in bat-borne viruses and it's a...

    So never. That's when you get a vaccine for corona viruses like MERS and the common cold. Outside of curing the common cold, you never get a vaccine.

    The pacing is the obvious connection to NWG. NWG always got his defender beside him on his drives and never let the defender back in front of him. He did this while always being in control and not...

    We are dealing with people not widgets. When you introduce people into a system, you find problems with people not the system. People are biased and irrational.

    You are correct in that it could be bias judge or jury, it may be a public defender problem, it could be racist cops. It could be a problem with the metrics. One of my attorney friends said that plea...

    I did not. I read the synopsis of the recommendation and saw that is was a drama (I was expecting a documentary). It looks interesting but it didn't look like it would shed any light on the problem.
