So the US government decides that now would be a good time to reveal that the CIA and the Mossad killed the Hezbollah bomber in 2008? Wonder why.
You are likely to have more dropped passes when you throw quick passes to the slot or into the middle which is what the Patriots do. Deflating the ball allowed them to play an extremely risky passing game with only average number of dropped balls. Or that would be the story. Not sure if you could really get away with an underweight ball for 5 years.I wonder how they will handle the balls during the Superbowl. Will the Patriots footballs be under guard by US marshals?
This is awesome. Once again White House officials reveal supposedly top secret operations damaging national security. Doesn't seem to bother anyone but me. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/19/world/asia/nsa-tapped-into-north-korean-networks-before-sony-attack-officials-say.html
Disappointing. Special teams players missed key assignments on critical plays. Why does GB always have such crappy special teams?
In a shocking turn of events, it turns out the months of protests in Ferguson were Democratic party astroturf. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2913625/Billionaire-George-Soros-spent-33MILLION-bankrolling-Ferguson-demonstrators-create-echo-chamber-drive-national-protests.html Bet this story gets a lot of play stateside.
yuThis seems like a fair point. The case that New York makes is that they are aggressively patrolling the most violent neighborhoods of NYC. This means that the racial demographics of their searches are likely to match the racial demographics of the most violent criminals. The police exercise a caution for safety, and perhaps they err on the side of caution, but that means they search a lot of innocent people for weapons and come up empty. But when they do come up with...
I was persuaded by this report. Thanks for posting. I think you might be underselling the last point. In all of their tests against racial bias, they controlled for age demographics. Their inclusion or otherwise seemed to have no effect on the results.
What was that cop listening to in the car. Is that considered normal practice?
Meh. Given that the number of people shot at by police is so small relative to the population of shooting subjects, there is a pretty good chance that the characteristics of the former are different than the latter. To me it seems pretty suggestive that the police actually hit every white person they shot at (which after all only amounts to 7 people in a city of 8 million). Suggests that a certain amount of white NYers are suiciding by police in a given year or preferring...
