With or without fans, TM?

But, but but.......

Hey Californians, where’s Santa Maria at? I just found out on FB that this guy I went to school with 35 years ago from Casper is moving to my current home town. His son mustered out of the Army at Ft Campbell and settled down with a local girl. That old saw.

The strangest aspect is, me and his brother were actually in the same class and friends.

Well, you can subtract one more conservative family leaving Sodom on the Pacific.

JiB: "With or without fans, TM?"

Baseball already is working around that problem.
There will be artificial crowd noises for broadcasts.
And, IIRC, some teams will put T-shirts on seats to stand-in for missing season ticket holders (non season ticket holders can pay a fee to get a chair covered with a Tshirt on their behalf)

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

A quick prayer and best wishes to TK if he happens to read ....

Jack Lillywhite

JimSV,

The Brits Premiere League Sr way ahead with banners of charecters in the seats and piped in synched crowd noise. Pretty impressive.

hrtshpdbox

I heard (or saw on Fox) that the Yanks let fans pay two grand each to have their photos laminated on cardboard cut-outs and placed in seats behind home plate. The players were wearing masks, which is just absurd. Imagine being a young man standing in right field with a mask on. I heard there's 13 players who've opted out, mostly because they're so damn rich and can say they're afraid of COVID. I wouldn't be surprised if other players drop out along the way, but at least baseball doesn't have players taking a knee.

Oops, accidentally posted this on the old thread:

Hi Sammy Small and mike in houston, good to see you. AISD is doing the same as Drippin and Houston, and I've signed my kids up to go back to school in person.

But I'm convinced that's just for show. Eventually they'll be "forced" to go entirely online and forego the Sept. 8th opening.

sbwaters

I heard you could buy a poster of yourself to be placed in a seat behind home plate for Yankee games—the funds to be donated to COVID-19 assistance.

Btw JiminSunnyvale, I really appreciate the "NEW!" image you've been posting - it gets everyone over to the new thread quite quickly. I should have fully refreshed before commenting.

Players wearing masks? You have to be kidding me. That is seriously unhealthy.

Late Sunday afternoon and we are having a thunderstorm, Boy is it steamy out! I only think I have seen this level of humidity in Orlando!

rse

I am going to move this from the previous thread in case anyone else is enduring these issues with their kids and wondering about the source. Not the Teaching Tolerance materials were originally developed before C'ville as if all ready for the tiki torch visuals to launch this as the main discussion as schools started back that late summer.


I think the shutdowns to remote are being driven by the accreditors--cognia (renamed from AdvancED to no longer have the name laid out in my book but still the same personnel). Only they have the power to make school districts fold so fast.

Ex--

The Teaching Tolerance materials are laid out in the report described here https://casel.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/SEL-Roadmap-Press-Release.pdf called "Reunite Renew Thrive: Social and Emotional Learning Roadmap for reopening School". I read it last week in horror, if not surprise, and then have tracked down a lot of the so-called Tools.

Our mayor, who used to be the state chair of the Rep Party, wrote an op-ed last week that made it clear he had bought the 1619 Project narrative verbatim. He was calling on HOAs in this mostly upscale, 4th largest city in Ga in terms of population, to have the requisite confessional dialogues while socially distancing.

Miseducated, a moron, and demonstrating a tendency towards fascism properly understood is a terrible face for the Rep Party.

Santa Maria is somewhat north of Santa Barbara.
We used to go to the ocean at the Cambria/Morro Bay area a lot which is nearby.
But it's inland on 101 so only been through it a couple of times I think but don't really remember it.

Too bad Trump has, apparently, no interest in school vouchers. Parents need other choices than the corrupted public schools.

Baseball started this week for us, T-Ball game this morning. What a blast. My granddaughter hit the ball off the Tee, dropped the bat and then ran after the ball and threw it to first base. So much fun!

henry

Jim_sv, on the zinc. 30 or 50 are the usual supplement amounts. The RDA is 10. Many warnings about taking too much, but those amounts are safe for healthy adults. (Or eat a can of oysters a day).

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

"Btw JiminSunnyvale, I really appreciate the "NEW!" image" at the end of the thread

Yeah, I think it was Dave(MA) who started that and it helped me avoid a willowed post ... so I try to do it if I'm online sometime close to the thread-roll.

Thanks Rocco and henry!

I have lots of C, D, Zinc, et.al.

I am hard pressed to regonize any game outside of tennis and volleyball when you don't come in contact with someone else. Who in those sports are going to wear a mask while playing, and dying of hypoxia??

My neighbor who was taken away in an ambulance last night came home today. I guess a 101 temp doesn't qualify her.

That Tucker Carlson quote in Julie Kelly's twitterfeed re David French applies to everyone of the nevertrumpers I can think of;

“David French is a buffoon, one of the least impressive people I’ve ever met. Only in nonprofit conservatism could he have a paying job.”

Think about it. Name one who, prior to Trump, was in the first rank of conservative thinkers or must reads. I can't think of a single one.

Not a one. Why? Well because he entered and took over the same enterprise.

Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy: If You Don’t Like My Coronavirus Lockdown, Move

Extraneus
During a press conference on Friday, Murphy snapped at reporters questioning his slow reopening of the state and poor handling of the pandemic, saying, “If you don’t like our leadership here, why don’t you go down to Georgia and see how that feels.”

This is not the first time Murphy has advocated departing from New Jersey if you disagree with his policies. In 2019, he was reported as having said, “If you’re a one-issue voter and tax rate is your issue, either a family or a business, if that’s the only basis upon which you’re going to make a decision, we’re probably not your state.”

Likewise, just this May, he told New Jerseyans who disliked how Labor Commissioner Robert Asaro-Angelo handled the pandemic-related unemployment crisis that “All I would say to anyone who thinks that: Go to another state.”

Trump is definitely interested in school vouchers, but unfortunately it can't really be front burner with the entire world trying to destroy him 24 hours a day.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/proclamation-national-school-choice-week-2020/

The commies make it very difficult to work down the list from existential survival to things like school vouchers, which are lofty goals but very, very difficult to get past the unions.

We can't even get schools opened right now, let alone get vouchers through.

I'm afraid that my Siamese is nearing the end of his life.

He is approaching 20 years old. He has severe cataracts, his hearing is not good, and he has arthritic rear hips. Until very recently his appetite was good, but that is falling off. And he is incontinent, though he does use piddle pads.

So far the quality of his life has been good, but I'm afraid we will have to make a difficult decision shortly.

Sigh.

Missouri governor says he'll likely pardon armed St. Louis couple if they are charged

jimmyk

This is not the first time Murphy has advocated departing from New Jersey if you disagree with his policies.

Cuomo said something similar a few years back, suggesting conservatives should leave the state. I'm sure many have obliged him. And see what's happening to his tax base.

jimmyk

Too bad Trump has, apparently, no interest in school vouchers. Parents need other choices than the corrupted public schools.

Education is still (fortunately, on balance) a state and local matter, so it's not clear what the federal government can or should do. It has some leverage with federal money, but that's a weapon that could be put to use in bad ways down the road. I think I'd rather the feds stay out of it (or I should say, get out of it to the extent they're already in it).

DrJ

Hell, I'm not sure I can remember when I was 19.

I sure can. I was a junior in undergrad school. I can still recite the courses I took. And yes, that is a long time ago.

Hey Governor Murphy. How about FUCK YOU??

Sammy Small

Yes, Santa Maria is on the 101 in central Cal, and is mostly consists of farmland flaked by mountains a little ways off on both sides. That area is starting to get into the vinyard growing region of the central coast, and San Luis Obispo is about half an hour north of there...beautiful area.

Old Lurker

JiB thanks for that 14th A post on the other thread.

Fascinating.

In own lesslettered way (compared to Iggy's name by name and thought by thought knowledge of such things), I have thought the great unwinding upon which Wilson jumpstarted his own agenda in the 19 teens, and FDR in the 1930's, actually began in the mid 1800's.

JiB's long post supports that.

Jane

Jack,

I remember when he came back from 9 under to win a tournament in HS. I've loved him ever since, I also remember him on Ed Sullivan when he was about 3.

Extraneus

Cuomo said something similar a few years back, suggesting conservatives should leave the state.

Yes, I believe it was about abortion. Something like "If you don't agree with New York values, then this isn't the state for you."

A corrupt, incompetent public servant proclaiming the "values" of an entire state is outrageous, and I say the same about corporations, where a CEO is somehow able to claim what the values of a shareholder-owned business entity are.

The latter has led to a lot of the problems we're currently witnessing, particularly with cancel culture and online censorship.

I read somewhere this morning that people were recently fired from Cisco for disagreeing with mandatory white-privilege training because their comments were inconsistent with the company's values.

I would donate to their legal funds if they sued on the values issue. The shareholders should get to vote on a list of specific values if management wants to tout such things. Otherwise, it's illegitimate and should be illegal.

Jane

Dr. J. I'm so sorry. Kiwi is such a huge part of my life. The thought of losing her, is unthinkable (as she snores by my side).

DrJ

OL,

Sometimes the hits just keep on coming for you, DrJ.

And they keep coming.

My tech will not return. He will live with his sister in northern Silicon Valley, and take up programming.

One fellow I worked with at Davis has left for an industrial job. Good for him, I suppose, but it is tough for me.

One fellow that I have worked closely with at UCLA is thinking of leaving.

So I don't know how I will get the current work done. Fortunately, MrsJ has been very, very good to me.

hrtshpdbox

jimmyk, according to NPR...

"President-elect Donald Trump said on the campaign trail that school choice is "the new civil rights issue of our time.""

And it would be if low-income parents could get a break on private schools. When they get taxed for poor public schools, they're being ripped off by their local government, and Trump could do plenty to keep the issue front and center.

Are you thinking of Michael Jackson? Sullivan was long dead when Tiger was 3.

DrJ

Jane,

Thank you for the condolences.

Tubby -- my nickname for the Siamese -- was a stray. It took me six months for him to choose me as his human. He did that.

Thereafter he has been loyal and devoted, for about 17 years. He has followed me everywhere. If he did not, I could whistle and he would come running.

He will be the fifth cat we will have buried since I have been here. Each one gets more difficult. Tubby is special, and I doubt I'll have another one like him.

I think a lawsuit might have a decent chance of success if brought by people harmed by a company's claim that they violated the company's values.

What are the company's values? Where were these values posted? Were they formally approved by shareholders? If not, how were they approved, and by whom? Is the CEO permitted to modify the company's values without a formal process? Can he or she do it without documenting the changes and communicating them to employees, customers, suppliers and shareholders? Which specific corporate value did my client violate?

Ext, at-will employees. Unless they’re a protected group, I don’t think they have a case.

Cisco may have violated their own policies about how terminations are to be done. If they called these terminations “misconduct” it might cost the employees their rights to COBRA, which might make it actionable.

Because they're all trustafarians.

I've mingled with and interacted with Antifa and Black Bloc 17 years now (dating back to my first reports). 90% of these guys and gals are from what the rest of the country would deem upper-middle-class homes. Parents who have lots of $$ and make an easy living as professors, lawyers, writers, techies, administrators, high-level civil servants, etc. etc. All liberal and lax in parenting and discipline. They let the kids run wild, yet still support them completely.

Most of the rest are all on SSI and get lavish government benefits.
