These are tough issues, and one more thing I would add into the mix is that when we are talking about rape, like any other crime, we are talking about the state's use of its power to deprive someone of liberty. That is why we have, historically, been very careful about the rights of a defendant. A little humility is necessary. We are not talking about whether we like the defendant or not or think she is a good person. We are talking about whether we believe we have...
The bolded language is not really true (but not ridiculously false either, just crudely clumsy) and entirely irrelevant. And he is arguing for annexation, not ethnic cleansing and certainly not genocide. Ethnic cleansing is what happened when Jordan and Egypt seized the West Bank and Gaza in 1948 and, literally, removed all Jews, including from places where they had lived for years. Every single one. That is what ethnic cleansing looks like. I am not arguing for Kai's...
Unless you limit the question to people who have had sex with women, you are going to get more responses than you were looking for.
Way to bury the lede. Here is the attack referred to above. Two Palestinians, sit at a cafe, order food, then, not even waiting for dessert, get up and start shooting people (they are the guys in suits in the lower right). Four dead so far. Others likely to die from their wounds today.Edit: Maybe this video will work; same one without blurring the victims and a different news program watermark.
I don't know if there is really any point in discussing the differences in athleticism at the professional level. The differences are huge. In squash, mid-level, over the hill club pros can handle the very top women on the tour. I know from talking to college tennis players that the top women pros were no competition for them. At the lower skill levels there is certainly enough noise that skill can compensate for physicality, but even in racket sports, where pure...
Buried in this is sort of a point.The difference in athleticism does have some relevance.I follow squash which has been moving pretty aggressively to gender equity in prize money. So far that has worked out o.k. because as small-time as the money is in the game, it mostly comes from sponsors and not ticket sales. For the moment, that is working out great as gender equity is new and fashionable and sponsors are happy to bask in the glow. But ticket sales for women's...
So I have been catching up on the various CBMs I never got around to watching. I know I am late to the party but Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises were both very good. Much better than Batman Begins. I was expecting Dark Knight to be very good because of all the Heath Ledger love. But Dark Knight Rises was surprisingly good as well. Next up - Man of Steel.
There is some design sense to making an ultrathin movement smaller - the wider diameter the movement, the more of a problem there is with flex for the ultrathin bridges. Making the movement smaller makes for more relative rigidity.
Very interested in the responses
