While those are good solid defensive plays they are not news worthy. They aren’t the sort of plays that only happen a handful of times in a generation or something.
Are people really that easily impressed these days? Or are they just shocked when they see somebody actually make an effort defensively because it’s become so commonplace for players to be all hitting and nothing else?
Willie Mays catch, Hank Aaron Home run, Jim edmonds catch, multiple Ken Griffie Jr. catches, This play was run of the mill baseball. Carlton Fisk Home Run....

It’s a logic problem. But the problem is it can’t be answered as it’s written. The answer they intend you to arrive at cannot be arrived at with the information given. It’s a poorly written question by someone starting with an answer and trying to reverse engineer a question for it, but they failed miserably.

The so called “answer” to this question is nonsense.
In order to arrive at that conclusion you have to assume things not in evidence. You have no way of knowing what the fictional characters reasoning was for saying what they said and no mathematical or logical way of figuring it out. The answer they want you to arrive at can only be arrived at if the fictional characters explain why they know what they know/don’t know.
It’s a very poorly written question that cannot be answered as constructed.
You are incorrect. It can be deduced logically as the article explains and jluther explains in a similar approach. You have to be able to separate terms (Al and Bern) and visualize the process
from their perspectives. Not saying it is easy and trained math magicians will have trouble with it, but it can be solved as explained.
I agree. How is it logical to eliminate all the May and June answers simply because they have the two unique dates?
I think this is a BS problem created by people who understand the principle behind the Emperor and his non-existent clothes!
In late-grade-school....I had MODERN-MATH, which is just using [letters]. QUADRATIC-EQUATIONS are NEVER USED IN REALWORLD SOLVING, [BUT] are just used to expand your thoughts.
In regular MATHEMATICS, the [CUBE-ROOT] IS NEVER USED IN REALWORLD SOLVING, but it is a good "excersize" in using new equation variables. Einstein discovered may NEW variables to explain his theories. TALK-ABOUT A GUY WITH AN EXPANDABLE MIND!!

Much ado about nothing.
Classifying this as child abuse makes a farce of the whole concept.
exactly. when I think of the punishments I got as a kid from teachers at school, parents at home, this was a NON EVENT. Now its an event thanks to the nazi--state that is growing in this country.
Kids can be like a Mule, you have to hit them on the nose with a stick. I just put this in for liberals.

He didn’t lose the race because he slowed down to celebrate. He had nothing left and the other guy did, simple as that.
The only “mistake” he made was looking like a fool because he thought the crowd was cheering for him rather than the guy about to pass him. Yes he celebrated prematurely and looked like an idiot, but he lost the race because the other guy beat him. There was never any slowing down.

Total nonsense. Sorry but Glenn is dead wrong on this one. You can talk all you want about us being our own worst enemy but in reality it’s just that we are honest with ourselves and don’t just blindly follow people that have self appointed themselves as our leaders. We can say somebody we generally agree with is wrong on something. Brain dead liberals can’t.
Sorry but the kids are simply being used to generate sympathy and you’re not only falling for it and playing into it, but encouraging it to be done on an ever larger scale.
How will giving away a million dollars worth of free stuff including toys at the border help to stop the trafficking of children? The more this is publicized the worse the problem is going to be. More people will be encouraged to make the dangerous journey. No one wants to see suffering children, but this plan was not well thought out.

People need to shut up about Derek Jeter already. He was a good ball player nothing more and nothing less. All this nonsense about him being “one of the game’s greatest players” or “one of the greatest of all time” is ridiculous. He was never at any point in his career even the best shortstop among his immediate peers. He racked up a lot of numbers because he played a long time, and there is something to be said for playing a long time, but his impact on the game and his stature amongst his peers is being overblown to idiotic levels.
It's NY. Wadya expect? Excellent Player - Not a God!

Having your opponent stop the fight because he’s afraid you’re so incompetent he’s literally going to kill or maim you is probably more humiliating and eye opening than just getting your ass kicked a little bit.

15mph over the speed limit isn’t a felony, it’s just considered reckless driving rather than simple speeding. Still a misdemeanor and a traffic violation which by law in every state in the country prohibit the restraining, detention, and arrest of individuals suspected of such violations.
I get where you’re coming from but this isn’t an activist judge.
Our entire legal system is built upon the explicit principle that you have the right to confront your accuser and see any and all evidence against you. It is not some trivial technicality.
Witness protection can be arranged if it’s warranted, but under the law no case can even be prosecuted without a named complainant. Substituting the state of xxxxx as the complainant does not meet that legal requirement.

I’m not seeing the issue here. Nobody else is allowed to carry a gun into that building, off duty police should be no different. They aren’t there in an official capacity as police officers, they are there off duty in the capacity of lobbyists. They should be treated exactly the same as any other citizen, which they were.
You know nothing about the law you commie piece of crap--Off duty police are required to carry--just because they are off shift doesn't mean they are not still an officer of the law!!!!!

That’s asinine. When you’re about to end somebodies life, you HAVE to be sure the situation warrants it. Thinking somebody might possibly be reaching for a weapon is not enough to warrant putting a hole through his face. If that’s your reaction in a similar scenario then you’ve got no business being in law enforcement. Again as I’ve said already under the law police are extended no such special exemption where they can kill people on a whim simply because they were frightened by what later turned out to be some innocuous action.
You can’t simply chalk it up to being human and say sometimes we get it wrong when you’re killing people. That is not acceptable.
You're a cop you pull someone over the person gets out of the vehicle and has what appears to be a gun. The person isn't following instruction you have all of the elements to justify using deadly force. Your heart rate is pegged out the thought of survival is the only thing on your mind. Try it sometime and see what decision you make. Remember doesn't matter if someone is old or young they can kill you just as fast

That’s the big lie by the people that always defend these senseless police shootings. Yes it’s a dangerous job and the possibility does exist that police will get shot at. But the reality is that it’s exceedingly rare for someone to actually shoot at an officer.
People have been watching too much tv and too many movies depicting every suspect pulling out a machine gun and blazing away at cops. It just isn’t reality. Even in most cases where suspects actually have guns they are rarely ever brandished let alone actually used. Incidents of police being shot at are the very rare exception, and police shouldn’t be being trained to behave as if it’s the norm.
March 17, 2014 at 12:20am
Anybody else would be on trial for murder right now regardless of the circumstances that lead up to it. It’s outrageous that police are allowed to do a cursory “internal investigation” and then summarily exonerate an officer of any wrongdoing. There are no exemptions granted to police under the law that allows such action. It’s blatantly illegal and one of the major contributing factors of the out of control militarized police we have on the streets these days. A jury should be deciding these cases, not a supervising officer. If a janitor shoots somebody we don’t allow his supervisor to decide he’s not criminally responsible. Again under the law police are extended no such exemption from the law.
Yeah, well if someone were ever to accuse me of a crime could I just hold a internal investigation for myself or just get some of my family member to investigate to see if they should prosecute?
That is how the system works, right?

Minor league hockey is what you’re describing, but minor league hockey has always been like that. This fight was clearly staged and planned and not really a fight but a display of two guys punching each other. But that’s been going on in minor league hockey since it started. All minor league sports are the same way. They have to make them into some sort of spectacle for people to come out to watch.
The pro game is anything but what you’re describing however. Your idea of how things “used” to be is ass backwards. The pro game used to be almost as if not as much a game of goons and no talent clowns as the minor league game. It’s gotten further and further away from that every single year. There will always be guys that are just dirty players and most teams will continue to carry a guy on their roster that serves no purpose but to go take a run at a guy when they feel like they need a spark. But you don’t have teams with those guys making up half their roster anymore.

I would have thought the market for stolen smartphones and tablets would have dried up when the government started providing them at no cost.

This is a stupid “controversy”. They can’t legally provide a drug to somebody that doesn’t yet have fda approval. People are trying to make this out like it’s a greedy drug company letting somebody die, but those people clearly have no clue about how hamstrung pharmaceutical companies are by the fda. This company having folded to public pressure if they provide the drug will be breaking the law and exposing themselves to an almost certain consent decree from the fda that can carry hundreds of millions of dollars in penalties. The drug could POSSIBLY help this one person, but that action could very possibly mean the end of the company.
Rowgue: "They can’t legally provide a drug to somebody that doesn’t yet have fda approval."
Ahhhhh... YES they can!
Apparently you did not catch that part of the story.
The drug - I would guess pretty much ANY drug - IS given to people BEFORE FDA approval. It is a 'controlled process' though - and in this case, one part of the drug research, development, approval, take to market process that has already been completed - And now this company does not want to 'revisit' that part because of the cost and possible negative effect such MIGHT have on the latter part of the overall process... Which is getting the product to market. (And subsequently getting a large sum of compensation into the pockets of the CEO and others.)

I don’t really get all the proclamations of “mystery”. The plane was very obviously hijacked. And it’s more than likely that it crashed when the hijacking went bad.
The only mystery is where it went down. But given that they have no idea where it was once the transponder was turned off it’s likely that question will never be answered.
