Experts said the company’s spotty disclosures have eroded confidence. They really need to re-do the Phase 3 trial.
  2. I think we already have with this previous episode. The post-RotJ novels describe how the remnants of the Empire fled into the Unknown Regions where they began to reconstitute as the First Order. The New Republic pilot said that they're investigating things happening in the Outer Rim which could be indicative that overall effort.
  3. Rahm Emanuel is a thoroughly detestable human being who deserves nothing less than crucifixion.
  4. Ethiopia: Tigray people 'ready to die' as leader rejects call to surrender | World news | The Guardian WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM PM Abiy Ahmed had set 72-hour deadline for Tigrayan forces to surrender or face offensive on Mekelle
  5. I honestly don't think any of us on this board is suffering from "normalcy bias" in the least or have any expectation that things will "revert to how they used to be" (nor should they because that is precisely how we got to this place to begin with). In fact, it's quite the opposite: this board is fully cognizant that the American system is fundamentally, irreversibly, and irreparably broken in all aspects: politically, economically, socially, and morally. We are way past the point of no return and this Pyrrhic victory represents merely an interregnum on the downward slope of conti
  6. One of my Georgetown MBA classmates passed away from the disease a couple of days ago - he lived in Belgrade, Serbia.
  7. He's the guy in the blue shirt in the back of the room trying to see around the guy standing in front of him.
  8. Key GOP Michigan canvassing board member expected to vote against certifying results WWW.CNN.COM A key Republican on the Michigan canvassing board is expected to vote against certifying the state's election results on Monday, a potential boon for the Trump campaign's conspiracy theory-fueled effort to delay the finalization of results. The question is whether the other Republican also votes against certification which will immediately toss it to the Michigan courts who will order certification. The governor can also replace the two Republicans with ones wh
  9. Covid-19: Sweden's herd immunity strategy has failed, hospitals inundated - NZ Herald WWW.NZHERALD.CO.NZ In the past few weeks, the country of 10 million has been smashed by Covid-19. So much for that.
  10. Yep - things are going swimmingly. Ethiopia's Tigray crisis: Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed rejects talks WWW.BBC.COM "We don't negotiate with criminals," a senior aide to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed tells the BBC.

  11. It's worth pointing out that the presenter self-identifies as a conservative but NOT as a Republican.
  12. This was an absolutely FANTASTIC series that I HIGHLY encourage everyone to watch, especially at this present moment. It's practically a moral "call to arms" for our own age as well. Of the three recent series that have addressed the sins of racial injustice of the United States -- Watchmen, Lovecraft Country, and The Good Lord Bird -- I'd have to rank them as follows: 1. The Good Lord Bird 2. Watchmen 3. Lovecraft Country The history lover in me connected more intimately with The Good Lord Bird than the other series, but that's certainly not to
  13. They're REALLY making this seem really quite effortless in comparison to the films. "Guys, it's not all that challenging to make compelling Star Wars content! Where the hell did it go so VERY wrong for you all?"
  14. That was really quite an enjoyable episode! And I'm in full agreement with what @Chris- said - that was very deftly handled!
