Guy wasn't as universally loved as Yzerman, but offensively gifted...geeze. His number belongs up there.

Government regulation is politics, and not for the board.
8 or even 6 years to recover capital is a long time when these companies are merging and buying eachother out it seems on a regular basis. $10 or $15 dollars a month is a ton when people are paying <$50/mo (Comcasts 75 Mbps package is $45, and a lot of customers stick to the slowest packages such as their 6 Mbps for $30/mo). Good luck having people swallow a 50% increase.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Previous relationships||
There are special exemptions for what is considered a previous relationship to being a recruit. Could people abuse this? Sure.
Otherwise Fred Jackson couldn't have taken his son to dinner without it being a violation.

Working for a small ISP the infrastructure generally is there. However it often is used as the backbone to get to a cable system. Regardless, switching to a pure fiber network and eliminating that "last mile" is not as simple as it sounds. Last mile construction for a home (or business) is estimated in that article as 1k per subscriber. It can go way beyond that.. Urban areas where wiring is all underground only adds to this. In addtion there are many network headaches of assuming everyone in a given node is upgraded and if so that there is truly enough fibers ran to that node. If not needing to multiplex the fiber can cause other issues. It is not just as simple to say "Oh, there is fiber within a mile, it is good to go."
3.0 can hit 500 Mbps and 3.1 is soon to arrive. Dealing with last mile copper is much easier. Most computers still have 10/100 WAN cards, and even the new MacBook Airs don't have LAN ports. It's easy to bash ISPs for saying people don't have it, but in most cases peoples' own equipment can't support Gigabit speeds.
You don't want to pay $300 a month for the service, the companies don't want to invest thousands of dollars per subscriber. Government = politics and some of how we got to this point in the first place. I'll stop there so we don't stray into politics.

Both Psychologists and Psychiatrists are covered under HIPAA, and often Psychiatrists notes (not medical records) are protected, sometimes even more stringently.

|21 weeks 1 day ago||This is a good point||
And one of the points in the article is that the counselors are some of the victims biggest supporters. It seems that they were unaware of this loophole themselves and are up in arms against this interpratation.
I find it hard to believe that a doctor can in good conscience support something which is not in the best intrest of their patient as this appears to be. There seems to be a link that it is only because of the lawsuit against the University that this was able to be done which further clouds the waters.

Whoever had the GIF of a fly moving around. I almost hit my screen countless times.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Plenty of punches thrown both||
Plenty of punches thrown both ways. Odd anyone actually misses a game from this next year?

While I agree they seem to be far and away the front runners, I have 0 expectations of them actually winning the B1G. It seems to be one of the times where everyone praises them, and they may easily buy into the praise and fall short. I still see them being a top 25 team, but just not the class of the B1G that everyone expects when every team they play is going to give them their best shot week in and week out.
|49 weeks 1 day ago||I waterskiied for U of M||
And our tournaments were during the fall. Missed quite a few games because of it. Normally it was just the non-conference since it was first couple weeks of the semester, but going to Nationals a couple times caused the team to miss a few B1G games as well.

My personal favorites in wallpaper are generic, not specific to a single player or phrase. Focusing on team aspects, the Bighouse, a Block M etc.
My wallpaper is still actually the Naughty or Nice Block M from MonuMental.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Agreed||
I think Durant is going to get one here soon and Mitch may well contribute along the way.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Boo||
I thought this was going to be about waterskiing and was excited :(
|1 year 23 weeks ago||I agree||
My one issue is 3.5 hours. With GA for big games you have to add a couple hours to that. Still people should be able to unplug for an entire day and be fine.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Thing that i'm most pleased with||
Balance: All five starters in double figures.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Upton Approves||

Bye Bye Borges!
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I understand what you are||
I understand what you are saying, however I would simply disagree.
My epinion: very little benefit in listing the names, and on a first casual glance it would seem to be against that rule.
Saying "a Jr who hasn't seen the field yet (and there aren't many) could transfer" would acomplish the same thing.
I do agree that it is completely different then looking at it from a scholarship crunch perspective/ I did not even come close to thinking you were saying they should leave.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Seriously?||
"Maybe figure a Terry Richardson or Chris Bryant or Jack Miller if they don't get on the field this year; every other junior has already played extensively and should again next year unless there's an injury or an early NFL departure among them, which doesn't seem very likely."
Speculating about players transferring is a big no-no on the board and now this gets posted on the front page? Names could easily be redacted and the message be the same. I'm disappointed.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Will it last||
I mean at least longer than Terry Foster's joint?
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Craziest thing||
My team has 3 Top 10 rb plays for this week (Lacy, Stacy, Vereen) and I still have spiller and rice on my bench. I would never have believed that those two would be this bad in August
|1 year 32 weeks ago||sorry||
Vernon Davis would be my call but Gates should be busy too
