In Partial Defense of the Seahawks’ Play Calling
FEBRUARY 2, 2015 BY ED FELTEN

*** begin quote ***

The conclusion that run-pass-run is the best sequence is fairly robust against changes in the probability assumptions. If it’s wrong, it’s probably because of the assumption that run-run-run isn’t an option.The Seahawks’ decision to pass on second down wasn’t crazy, but a better choice would have been to pass on third down. Announcers who said “just run twice” were giving bad advice. The Seahawks didn’t make a terrible play call; they made a reasonable choice but were defeated by a great defensive play.

I think this analysis over looks that the NE Pats had timeouts.

I doubt Bill B would not try to save some time for a “Hail Mary” by Brady.

Hence a stuffed run, might get a “free” time out from NE.

Interesting discussion.

INTERESTING: Maybe I can trademark “fowgi”?

EVERYDAY MONEY
TAYLOR SWIFT
Can Taylor Swift Really Trademark “This Sick Beat”?

Yes, and Here’s Why

Taylor Swift just tried to trademark “This Sick Beat.” Here’s why she can, and why it makes a whole lot of financial sense.

The internet almost exploded Thursday over news that pop star (and freshly minted New Yorker) Taylor Swift has trademarked the phrases “This Sick Beat,” “Nice to Meet You. Where You Been?,” and “Party Like It’s 1989,” among others.

Actually, that’s not quite true. Contrary to many reports, Swift has not yet been granted any of these trademarks—she’s merely applied for them and is awaiting approval by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Well, that’s “my girl”.

Business say and always finding a new wrinkle!

Like Cher, “barbara streisand”, and Dolly Parton, you have to back the beauty with brains.

Argh!

300$ a pop for trademarks?

Maybe I can trademark “fowgi” and “fat old white guy injineer”?

Too descriptive of a real thing?

Patriots coach says he doesn’t know how balls were deflated

*** begin quote ***

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Thursday he doesn’t know how footballs became deflated during the game that got his team to the Super Bowl.

*** end quote ***

I believe him.

(Until there is evidence otherwise.)

Solve it like the two children splitting a sandwich.

One cuts; the other picks.

So the NFL sets the specs for the balls and the teams exchange game balls.

End of problem. No muss. No fuss.

No?

Magnesium: An Invisible Deficiency That Could Be Harming Your Health
By Joseph Mercola Mercola.com
January 20, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Magnesium is a mineral used by every organ in your body, especially your heart, muscles, and kidneys.1 If you suffer from unexplained fatigue or weakness, abnormal heart rhythms or even muscle spasms and eye twitches, low levels of magnesium could be to blame.

*** and ***

Early signs of magnesium deficiency include loss of appetite, headache, nausea, fatigue, and weakness. An ongoing magnesium deficiency can lead to more serious symptoms, including:

“Numbing and tingling”

Wow, Our Girl has that. Might have I “saved” her by magnesium. SOB!

And, I have “numbing” and no trots. Maybe I need more?

First Person
When a Cartoonist Landed in L.A. County Jail, She Drew What She Saw, Using Only a Golf Pencil

*** begin quote ***

In June 2014, I was arrested for violating a court order. I bailed out on July 3. But because I had no money and an overworked public defender, I knew I’d have to serve time for my violation. That’s when my mentor, animator-director Ralph Bakshi, advised me to “document my exploits.” Jailed in the women’s division of the Los Angeles County jail system for two months, I was sent first to Century Regional Detention Facility (CRDF) in Lynwood and then to Twin Towers Correctional Facility in downtown Los Angeles for my final three weeks. Armed with nothing more than a golf pencil and whatever paper I could get my hands on, I drew the strange world into which I’d been dropped.

I read some of this and I was actually sickened.

And, this is supposedly a free society?

Disgraceful.

INTERESTING: Why can’t we all use GMT as our time?

Thursday, January 1, 2015

2015 Jan 01 NYE

I was thinking that if “we” all used GMT+0 (Zulu?) that we could all celebrate at the same time?

And, end a lot of confusion of time zones. That’s what computers do! And the US military.
