Captain Hate

Not walking Soto was bad strategy

D

I am torn here wrt this World Series game.
I like s team like the Nats who have never won to win it.
On the other hand, I didn’t like the booing of President Trump.
May the best team win.

Captain Hate

Seven road wins would be incredible.

I think that horrible third strike call on Correa is the handwriting on the wall. Nats win.

Dammit

Captain Hate

That was a real bad call.

Another Bob

“Seven road wins would be incredible.”

Allegedly it’d be the first time in the history in any sport.

-of any sport-

Speaking of bad ball/strike calls, the game turned on the 2-1 pitch to Soto in the 7th. A perfect pitch at the knees called a ball, makes it 3-1 instead of 2-2. Greinke has to be careful at 3-1 and walks him, and gets yanked, Harris comes in and gives up the HR. Agree with CH, I’d have left Greinke in. And, yes, I couldn’t believe they gave anything to Soto to hit on the 8th.

Porchlight

Wtf.

D

Astros haven’t scored any runs in the last 5 innings.
That is not the way to win the game.

jimmyk

Uh-oh, Nats could blow it open here.

D

Let’s Rally Astros!

jimmyk

“Allegedly it’d be the first time in the history in any sport.”

Apparently even 6 road wins is unprecedented.

Porchlight

I turned the game off.

D

I can’t watch.
My husband will tell me what happens.
Then I will go back and watch it.

jimmyk

Damn, I wanted it at least to be close.

Did they score again?

I suppose the President will have to invite the Nats to the White House. The President's a good sport though. I was hoping the Dodgers would play in the series. Oh well. Wait until next year.

How many hours is the propane tank good for??--

A five gallon tank is good for five trouble free hours at which point it's about one third full. After that I have to swap it out for an ambient temperature tank. So figure eight hours for a whole tank. Not as energy dense as my gas one which will go 12 hours on ~five gallons of gas. Presumably a 5 gallon tank holds closer to 4 gallons so it's not as bad as it seems.

Here’s what the Federal Reserve chair really thinks about the economy

Deciphering Jay Powell's Fedspeak after the rate cut.

Years ago the FED realized it needed to be more open in its communications about its actions and future actions. Powell doesn't seem to be very good at doing that.

jim nj

Iggy

WeWork is probably worthless right now, but a turnaround is possible.

I read that just recently they planned lay-offs, but couldn't implement them because they didn't have enough money for the required severance payments.

If they can stabilize the company, sign no new rental lease and re-negotiate existing ones they might gain some breathing room.

I think the landlords might cooperate because a WeWork bankruptcy is not in their interests.

https://nypost.com/2019/10/29/california-is-winning-its-way-into-the-stone-age/

I think the time has come to take PE&G and the other utilities off the front lines and come up with a more comprehensive approach.

While the utilities own the right-of-way for their transmission lines there is no reason that state agencies or the California National Guard can't help out.

Yes the utilities bear the responsibility for maintaining their equipment and clearing their rights-of-way, but finger-pointing at the utilities without showing some leadership from the state is useless.

Jim nj,

Re: that article on the evils of Climate Change, I don't even have the words. This is the new gospel of the left. President G.W.Bush set forth some sound principles back in 2003 to deal specifically with the desert peaks of the southwestern United States. The Congress did nothing, so the problem continued. As a result we have no brush abatement programs like we had when I was a kid, no instruction on how to best landscape with fire resistant plants, and so on.

After the last disastrous fire up north, the President came out to California. He met with Brown and Newsome, and I hoped that they would at least come to a compromise on a plan to be prepared for the "fire season." Nothing happened. So now this pseudo scientist is going to tell us how we have to bow down and worship the new god of climate change.

I think we're going to have a long talk here at home on whether its a good idea to move to another state with a saner approach to fire safety. I really love the California climate, so I'd hate to leave. But I've got to the point where l don't like getting up in the morning to the smell of fire, and the fear that were were going to be told to pack up and be ready to evacuate. There has to be a better way.

jim nj

https://www.usni.org/magazines/proceedings/2019/october/deploy-ford-and-shock-test-later-ship-class

I disagree. I really don't care that some other ships weren't shock-tested until the second or third one was built.

This is a 13 billion and counting warship. Shock test the damn thing now while we can modify the design for the next one, if needed.

The only reason for not shock-testing it that I can think of is that they aren't sure it would pass the test.

The whole point of subjecting a warship to a nearby underwater explosion is to see if any systems fail or any structural components suffer damage.

My current thinking is that they have had so much trouble getting 3 out of 11 armaments elevators to work that a shock test might render all of them useless.

Look it's the most advanced warship we have ever built. The Navy has taken bad press on the delays in getting the ship seaworthy. They don't want another PR hit, but don't put the damn thing in harm's way without fully testing it.

jim nj

Barbara,

I think that Michael Mann article was evil. I see no reason that California needs to accept this as the "new normal."

In my early years, California was a really cool state. In my lifetime it has lost its way.

In my youth here on the East Coast it was innovative. Now it's static.

California politicians should face up to that fact that this is a war for the survival of the state.

Finger-pointing is a waste of time. Virtue signalling is a waste of time.

The powers that be should design a military-type campaign that utilizes all available resources and execute it now.

From what I am reading Gov. Newsom isn't up to the task as he is still trying to balance competing interests.

F*ck the Greens. Pull a Trump. Do something illegal, like no environmental suit will be accepted by the state court system until we have implemented our emergency plan to save the lives of Californians.

Me, I would create an environment where every "green" suit was aimed at killing Californians.

"You are ruining the environment." vs. "You are killing Californians."

WOW!

"The agreement, disclosed October 29, will reduce the unit cost of all three variants by an average of 12.7% across three production lots. The most common variant, to be used by the Air Force and nearly a dozen overseas allies, will cost less than $80 million to manufacture—below the cost of buying a new F-16, the legacy fighter F-35 is supposed to replace."

Less cost than a new F-16.

I maintain an open mind on Q, but I am not a devotee.

The theory is interesting, which is why I posted it. There are several threads up with similar theories, including one which said that the intelligence they gathered included boxes of documents and laptops, and cables that came directly from our State Department.

I figure we will l;earn some of the truth eventually. Some stuff we may never know.

So are the unfree presstitutes no longer lying about Rodham saying Gabbard is a Republican asset instead of Russian, which everyone initially heard and said? Dance monkeys dance!

Is WeWork worth zero?

Given the liabilities and the absence of any imaginable plan in which it might generate an actual profit anytime in the foreseeable future, I’d say that “zero” is a wildly optimistic assessment of the value of that company.

James D.

Congrats to the Nationals.

Now it’s time to turn to next season and what I hope the Yankees will do.

Which is to combine their young homegrown talent with an epic, unprecedented free agent spending spree that would make George Steinbrenner rise from his grave to stand up and cheer, and to build a team that will absolutely bludgeon all opponents into submission regardless of how many injuries or how much bad luck the baseball gods throw at them, and return the championship to the Bronx where it rightfully freaking belongs.

MissMarple2

“But the Astros had 10 more hits over the course of the Series, so their ‘win’ is not legitimate.”
