|05/13/2018 - 5:36pm||I was respoding to message||
I was respoding to message #53, which said that Harbaugh looks "clueless," and you jumped in. I don't know why you believe that overthrowing a wide-open receiver for what would have been a TD is meaningless. O'Korn continually missed the mark like that in the game. And you also failed to recognize that O'Korn failed to execute late in the game--turning what should have been a big play, with a chance to go ahead with time running out, into an INT. "What's YOUR Deal?"
|05/13/2018 - 2:41pm||Add O'Korn's misses||
Add O'Korn's misses throughout the rest of the OSU game--including the one with under 2:30 to go, when he had a couple of recivers wide open. But somehow, Harbaugh is clueless? "What's YOUR deal?"

"Back in the 90s, you weren't even allowed to leave your man to double team without being hit with the old illegal defense rule." Uh, the Pistons playing "the Jordan rules" routinely sent a second player--and sometimes a third--at MJ.
|05/07/2018 - 10:02am||A couple of points after||
A couple of points after reading the article.
First, the participant groups were small--20 in each--so some caution should be used in drawing conclusions.
Second, the article notes the same caveat that I mentioned, but then points to another study: "You might conclude that urban parents who want to give their kids the laid-back country attitude and robust immune system that comes with growing up on a farm should be sure to provide their children a pet.
"This study doesn't really shed light on that surmise. But here's an intriguing tidbit from a 2001 study carried out at the University of Zagreb: Young adults who had a pet as a child were more empathetic, more prone to choosing helping professions, and 'more oriented toward social values' than were young adults who'd grown up without pets."
|05/07/2018 - 9:54am||Going on the OP's description||
Based on the OP's description and question, the study isn't well-designed to establish whether being around animals produces health benefits for humans.
"German researchers recruited men under 40 whose childhoods fit one of two starkly different patterns. Either they had spent the years before they turned 15 in a city of more than 100,000 people and had never had a pet in their childhood home. Or, they spent those years on a farm that raised livestock."
Are benefits due to having the livestock, or do they result from other aspects of rural life? A study that would be better for addressing the OP's question would feature either (a) urban living, with and without pets, or (b) rural living, with and without livestock. So that the presence or absence of animals wouldn't be mixed up with other environmental factors.

Multiple O-line injuries--affecting the starting center, right guard, right tackle, tight end--were largely responsible for that 7-5 season. People complained about Henne having "regressed," but he just didn't have the pass protection that he had the previous year. The running game picked up when Long was able to get back into the lineup.

My involvement with criminal law was in prehearing at the Michigan Court of Appeals, where for the first few months I worked primarily on CSC cases with child victims.
If fou're saying "rape" doesn't happen unless there's penile pentration, that's . . . rather odd.
Please share your background. I'm concerned that people who don't know better will be misled by your pronouncements about the law.
