    STAR WARS Everything

    This image is from a CNN story on Rise of the Resistance. I think Mandalorian used red eyes because the theme park robots will have red eyes.

    If you request the desktop version in safari it works. Weird. You can do that in the menu on the left of the url address.

    What does a McCann extension look like?

    Since May 12 his BABIP has .371 and he has posted a .782 OPS. Since June 1, he also has a .371 BABIP but an .842 OPS. I'm not sure how sustainable a .371 BABIP is for McCann, but he's been productive even at a level below .400.

    Job Thread

    How are you going to advance when you always need someone to draw out the timelines of a project and set expectations with this amount of clarity? You can't be a manager with these needs, so how do you define "advancement"? And how do you take on projects that have never been tried before where progress cannot be so readily defined? What value are you bringing to the company? What you see as reasonable are the things that every employee wants, but eventually understands they won't always receive, so we all learn to work within that uncertainty and set our own timelines to accomplish goals based on experience. That's what managers expect. Failure is acceptable if you learn from it and correct it in the future. You don't seem capable of handling that. Career advancement is always subjective, and has as much to do with personality as experience and technical ability. You really need to find a way into a government position with civil service protections and position criteria so getting fired requires process, and advancement and raises are a little more defined.

    This is how my office works. With young kids, the flexibility is necessary. There's a lot of other crap we put up with, but micromanaging isn't one of them.

    It surprises me that anyone would think the Sox will land an elite free agent and would develop Moncada based on that. This is where the Sox should be maximizing the in house potential, which it seems to me they are.

    Game of Thrones

    I agree with the bolded. I have found it frustrating how easy it appears to kill the dragons, so it would be cool if it didn't die.

    The crypt was pointless. You hear everyone screaming, but apparently no one died. I will say they lost the ability to kill named characters when the books ended.

    He survived dragon fire. It was pay off for watching 2 seasons of Arya training.

    Relationship Advice Thread

    The first thing you need to do is talk to her about the changes and that she needs to go back to get help. That's a hard conversation but she needs to hear it. Speaking personally, I was just recently diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder. I've had depression in the past, and the two are linked. It sucks, but I wasted no time getting on meds (which are pretty awesome) and I'm looking for a therapist. These things happen and shouldn't be a big deal to anyone. Getting help is important and should be treated like a broken bone. For whatever reason, depression always felt like a thing I should just fight on my own. But the panic disorder became impossible to ignore or fight. Being honest with myself has been liberating in a sense and I know that it will make me a better husband and father. If you also suffer from anxiety, it might help to see a relationship counselor. I never would have done this when I was younger, but experience has a way of changing perspectives.

    I use State Farm. Had a claim for hail damage and got all new siding and gutters. No hassle.

    Jussie Smollett/Chicago police nice work

    I don't even know what you are arguing. You claimed that Foxx broke the law by recusing herself but not having a special prosecutor appointed, and I said that wasn't likely true. Nothing in this statement contradicts my position. She didn't recuse herself before the court, so the statute doesn't apply. I'm not debating that she appears to have breached ethical rules and best practices, but I don't see where she broke the law. Funny thing, that statement was written by a guy I went to high school with.

    First, I'm speaking in likelihoods, not definitives because I doubt the issue has ever been decided. Second, I have tried to explain that in the event the office is entirely conflicted, then a special prosecutor is appointed. For example, if an employee of the State's Attorney Office is a defendant, or a family member thereof, the whole office is probably conflicted and a special prosecutor is appointed. There is nothing wrong with Foxx having a conflict and invoking a firewall to remove herself from the investigation, which is covered in the ethical rules. The unethical part is violating the firewall, which may have resulted in this outcome. That's a serious problem.
