The video is quick, but the first 15 seconds or so are credits. When the sunrise starts, you probably won’t recognize it: it’s easy to imagine after the fact, but you’ve never seen anything like it so the first time will feel quite new.
I wonder if there is a link between sports championships and doing time in prison after retirement: basically, dirty person = dirty/effective player.
A lot of this is sour grapes: I grew up in Buffalo, and a little part of me died on 4 January days in the 90s.
And, it just seems to me that there are quite a few players from those champions who've done time.
But ... maybe not. Try this out in Google:
108K hits for the search +"Buffalo Bills" +prison
123K hits for the search +"Washington Redskins" +prison
302K hits for the search +"New York Giants" +prison
649K hits for the search +"Dallas Cowboys" +prison
Of course, some teams are more popular. But, I looked a this, and the percentage of a teams overall hits with the keyword prison present was 2, 4, 2, and 6%.
It gets worse: almost half of the hits for Buffalo go away when you tell Google to drop them if they include the word "simpson".
The names on Google's front page will make you do a double take as well: Mark Ingram and Dave Meggett for the Giants, and Tim Smith for the Redskins were all Super Bowl heroes. And who could forget about the Cowboys - although, interestingly, those guys don't make the top page at Google because of all the other more recent problems in Dallas.
There are lots of players in this mini-industry, but the biggest is probably Nouriel Roubini – a very bright NYU professor whose been preaching financial doom and gloom for … well … since before the last recession. Who knows – maybe he’s right.
1.Time - looking at porn is taking up more time and more time. It is no longer just a means to an end.
2.Cost - looking at porn is beginning to cost you because you are neglecting other areas of life (for example, you're not doing your job properly or your relationships are deteriorating.)
3. Objectification - after a porn session you're looking at everyone in a sexual, porn-filtered way. (In the Friends episode The One With The Free Porn, Chandler realises [sic] he and Joey have to turn off their free porn channel when he goes to the bank and is surprised the teller doesn't ask him to 'do it with her in the vault.' Funny but it reflects the truth.)
4. Desensitisation - in some cases, people find themselves looking at harder and harder porn, even at material which conflcits [sic] with their personal values.
5. Acceptance of the message - wanting to take what you have seen in the fantasy of porn into the reality of your life. (For example, wanting to suggest it to your partner or wanting to join a club or chat room could well be warning signs.)
Now, to turn this around, the signs that someone has a problem with pessimism porn are:
Spending a lot of time reading and talking about the bad economic news.
Focusing on bad economic news is interfering with other parts of life.
Surprise that others aren’t quite as obsessed with the bad economic situation as they “should be”.
Worse economic news is rush.
Acting on the bad economic news when there isn’t need to.
Does this sound like anyone you know? It sounds like quite a lot that I know.
Media Matters purposefully used a broad definition of "economist" to be inclusive, coding as an economist any guest who has a master's degree or doctorate in economics or who has served as an economics professor at a university or college, as best as we could determine.
Note that this is economists; macroeconomists is a subset that is no doubt smaller still.
I don’t think you can get those kind of numbers by accident. I think it is useful to ask why it is so important for the legacy media to misrepresent their talking heads as economists.
N.B. If you don’t know the meaning of the word in the title, this is a good time to plug in the keywords “define” and “poseur” into Google.
In a lot of cases minimum prices are stipulated for retailers by manufacturers.
This would seem to create an antitrust issue, and historically it has. For about 100 years the legal system has viewed plain vanilla versions to be anti-competitive.
The manufacturers response to this has been to add a quid prod quo to the agreement - something like you can't lower the price because you benefit from advertising that we pay for. These are on shaky legal ground.
But last year the Supreme Court ruled that stipulating a minimum price was OK if the product potentially required personal support at the retailers (e.g., demos or technical expertise) that the manufacturer would like to encourage.
That's the backstory. Now here's some cute stuff for classroom use:
Big box discounters and online retailers don't like it
"Opponents of the ruling, including eBay Inc. and Costco Wholesale Corp., are hoping the decision will be reversed by legislation expected to be debated in Congress next year. The bill's sponsor, Sen. Herb Kohl (D., Wis.), argues that minimum-pricing agreements violate the Sherman Act, the law that prohibits price fixing and bid rigging.
"However you want to dress up these policies with fancy legal language, these policies are obviously in the interest of business and not the consumer," says Jacob Weiss, founder of StopPriceFixing.org, a Web site that aims to end minimum pricing policies by educating consumers about them."
But, traditional main streeters like them:
"Many traditional retailers favor minimum-pricing agreements because they help put a stop to what the stores view as unfair competition from online sellers, which can charge less because they have lower overhead costs."
Students are often confused when they see products whose price is always the same everywhere:
"Mr. McMahon agrees consumers 'will think it odd when they go on the Internet and find all the products at exactly the same price.'"
The manufacturers apparently know they are doing something that can be spun negatively without much effort.
"Manufacturers often don't like retailers to discuss their pricing agreements publicly. A 2008 MAP agreement from electronic learning-aids manufacturer LeapFrog Enterprises Inc. states, "This policy is considered confidential and should be respected as such relative to conversations with LeapFrog competitors.""
Of course, you can't discriminate on the basis of a whole set of personal features, but you sure can over policies that might not be enforceable in court:
"Some manufacturers threaten to cut off supplies to retailers that charge below minimum prices outlined in agreements. One example is Alex Inc., in Northvale, N.J., which makes play houses and arts-and-crafts supplies, among other products."
