Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

Stealing the quotes/snippets here from a post on RealGM... Wowwwwwww. Just some insane tidbits. I tend to trust Cowley on things like this, but even if only a fraction of this stuff is true it speaks volumes to how dysfunctional we've become. Here are some of the highlights: The drafting of Marquis ...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

If our undercounting factor is on the low end, we might still only have like 1-3% of the population infected. That would put us in an awkward situation. That all makes sense. At this point, I think its pretty damn unlikely that only 1-3% of Americans have been infected. Testing now, gdi. And not ju...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I posted something about this in the general chit chat thread, but I guess it's applicable here too. My 72 year old father-in-law took a nasty fall yesterday out of a second story window. And despite being 5-6 minutes away from both the hospital and the ambulance depot, it took them 40 minutes to g...

Re: Politics & Current Events

These national polls don't take into account where the votes are coming from, right? Hillary was up 2 points in 2016. I think statewide polls in Wisconsin, Michigan, etc, are a lot more important to look at when deciding on your confidence level. https://morningconsult.com/tracking-trump-2/ This st...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

We have the benefits of lower population density and being relatively isolated geographically right? Given how slow to respond we were and how much our population travels large distances(domestic & international), I'm guessing we pretty much gave away the latter advantage. and nearly half of ou...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Rough math on how well we've managed this relative to other countries (TONS of caveats here, of course, but these are all advanced countries we're talking about): By the end of this week, we're on pace to have more cases than the next five countries combined (Italy, Spain, Germany, France & Chi...

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

Now this whole "were gonna hire a POC as GM thing" instead of just hiring a POC looks like they're just reacting to the negative press to appease people rather than maybe just actually looking at their old boys club hiring policy that's consistently led to them being one of the least dive...

That is heavily speculative, at absolute best, unless I missed something.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I've seen a couple more articles pop up today with doctors saying that intubation is the wrong treatment for a lot of these cases because the lungs are doing a reasonable job of expelling CO2, it's just that the oxygen isn't getting to the blood. That would definitely be interesting for the possibi...

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

What was 100% wrong? I do think the token interviews they gave yesterday reached WTF levels like they almost went out of their way to pick the worst people imaginable. Beyond that, I don't really see anything wrong with the search they conducted and how (impressively) quickly they acted. They are a...

I believe Diamond Princess was 20% with swab tests, I don't think they ever did antibodies. If this thing is as transmissible as some of the recent report imply, it's safe to assume pretty much everyone on the cruise ship got it. yeah, i should've clarified...but with the whole event being limited ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump as of now is better than a coin flip to win the election. I wish i shared some of your optimism I disagree. Hard. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/general_election/ At a comparable date in 2016, Clinton was pulling +10s routinely. and teams sometimes come back from down 3...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

It's a mixed bag. An R0 of 5.7 would make it really tough to control with measures short of full lockdowns. On its own, that's bad news. But it calls into question official case counts and hints a little bit at the everpresent "iceberg" theory: that even the amount of cases we suspect is ...

If you guys are mad now, wait until you find out that Trump comes out of the entire pandemic with a political tie at worst because the worst-case scenarios that needed to be broadcast to force him to react also give him an extremely easy bar to pass under and declare victory.
