ohio state blogs will post literally anything
So one of those hilariously-corporate-sounding corporations that goes around using the DMCA to get stuff off the internet has hit my youtube account, taking down big chunks of the last couple years of UFR clips.
I believe there's a strong fair use argument here and would like to issue a counter-notice, but that exposes me to a lawsuit so I'd like to know get I'm getting into. I've already emailed the EFF about my situation in the hopes they'll find it to fit their mission, but I know there are lawyers out there: can any of them offer non-binding non-legal disclaimered no one will sue you advice for me?
About a month ago, I wrote a diary using compiled research expenditures by school and athletic conference. The best expansion scenario featured Duke, UNC and Pitt, all of which are almost certainly off the table at this point (the ACC recently increased its buyout fees to $20m, yeesh). Here is a revised list of schools that I would consider available. Criteria for available: not an SEC, Pac, ACC or B1G school and currently in a BCS auto-bid conference (and ND). All numbers are five year aggregates and *1,000.
The Current Big Ten:
|Average (includes <40,000,000 as zero)||2,325,875|
|Average Per Year||465,175|
|Highest Spender||Wisconsin (4,116,318)|
|Lowest Spender||Indiana (678,879)|
|Big Ten Median||2,093,400|
|Lowest B1G School||678,879|
Justin Verlander now 24-5 and having one of the finest seasons in recent history. If I had a vote for MVP JV would get it. Cy Young is a mortal lock
On another note, those pesky Rangers won again, leaving the Tigers with a precarious one game lead in the race for HFA. Go Tigers.
Let's grab another W and keep this thing rolling. Go Lions
[ED:BISB; Per request, and to consolidate OT stuff, this thread is now open for NFL fans of all stripes. Though why you would want to watch anyone but the Lions is beyond me]
I'm not sure if this qualifies as Off Topic or not but I figured since it says M Go Blue, it would be on topic. Anyway, you've seen it on TV, now see it on my blog.
First off I'm sorry for posting something OT during the football season, especially so close to game day but I do have a problem that needs to be resolved. The management company that bought our complex last month just left a note saying that if we don't put our trash and recycling bins in our garage 12 hours after they pick the trash up and keep them in there until the night before trash gets picked up or they will fine us $25 every occurrence. I don't want to do that because even if I try and use the garbage disposal for as much food waste as possible, which I do, there is still going to be some that ends up in the trash. Our garage has no air circulation, only 1 small window, and in the summer months it stinks if we try and keep the trash in there. We also use our garage, i keep a weight bench in there and the gf has a bowflex in there. We are not he only residents of our complex to keep our trash bins by the side of out apartments and town homes, I think roughly 80% of all tenants do the same. I looked over our lease and it doesnt say anything about us having to keep our trash in the garage but under the rules of the premesis it does say the management has the right to change the rules as they see fit. Should I try and fight this? I e-mailed the city and asked if this was legal and what department I should inquire with thinking maybe there was a city ordinance against this. Also, I know that some of you will say that the management company knows what the laws are, but when they bought the property last month they put a note on everybody's door stating that between the 6th and the 20th of this month they will be doing inspections and that the note was a sufficient notice of entry, so obviously they either do not know the rental laws or city laws or they don't care about them. Thanks for any input.
