As the authors emphasize in the study, there are challenges with the way this information is collected. Right now, it's all retrospective, for instance, and families have to fill out questionnaires, remembering information that may come from several decades back, and it's hard enough for most of us to remember what happened last week," said Hales, who was not involved in the new study.
|04/30/2018 - 7:51pm||This is junk science||

To figure out how to use Costco and the instacart app will tell you what stores are available near you. There's so much that's useful about a membership and if you use it enough the executive membership is more expensive but it gives you cash back at 5% or something.
They send emails pretty regularly that help you learn how to use it (insurance, pharmacy, delivery with instacart, etc.).
But you have to use it for the membership to make sense.
Little known fact is that Costco actually is a subscription based model and makes its money primarily on annual memberships, rather than the stuff it sells (I think highest mark-up on any item is 5%).
|04/27/2018 - 7:45pm||Costco + The Prisoner||
Costco because they've partnered with instacart, which means someone else shops with the unwashed masses and delivers to your door. Within a one hour window - i.e., you tell them when to deliver and it's from 11-12 or 3-4, etc.
If all you need is produce and personal products it's great for that. Instacart/Costco doesn't have everything you'll probably want/need but it takes care of the vast majority of multikid family needs without having to go to the store. Really convenient.
Plus, gas and tires and routine car maintenance is inexpensive.
Also, as I recall you take trips with kids and their travel agency has amazing value pricing.
The Prisoner because it's an easy drinking red and sometimes that's what Friday is all about.
Oh, and who is the biggest market maker/influencer in wine? The French press? No. The American consumer? No. The Chinese? No. The restaurant industry? No. It's the wine buyer for Costco - she has such purchasing power that what she wants/needs is followed very closely by the producers. So great prices on high end hootch as well.
Hope this is helpful.
|04/13/2018 - 4:05pm||What kind of doctor?||
If you're seeing a family physician instead of a doctor trained to deal with athletes web experience in same, there's not a disconnect. As a potential scholarship athlete, did you see the former or the latter because the latter would be less likely to miss. And doesn't matter where the doc graduates from for med school. Residency much more important and field experience is tantamount.
|03/31/2018 - 9:53am||Leave that shit in Ann Arbor||
If you want an unobstructed view buy a floor seat or first row in the section above walkways. If you're infirm, there are seats for those with such conditions as not being able to stand. Part of the bargain of being in the building is that it's a life event with lots of people who may yell and stand. I've lived in LA since 200 and have been to countless events at Staples and have never heard "down in front" ever, until the western regional this last weekend. My very polite response? Leave that shit in Ann Arbor.
|03/25/2018 - 8:34pm||San Antonio isn't ATL||
Prices will come down
|03/23/2018 - 4:12pm||Careful with floor seats! Not much elevation.||
The "down in front" crowd has traveled from Michigan to Staples center! We were getting yelled at by a couple of dudes that looked like the movie critics from the muppets, because we were going crazy and standing up and cheering in the first half. We can't see when you stand up! Um, then you should be standing up and cheering too!! But, we're up by 22 points! Have you ever seen a basketball game, dear sirs?! They were told to leave that sh*t in Ann Arbor! They pointed to their UM lapel pins. Unbelievable.

If you're local, there are always deals on stubhub 2 hours pre-game - just make sure your stubhub account is setup and your payment information is preloaded into the app on your phone.
I have an office down the street from Staples and I've had the opportunity to sit even in suites for as low as $35/pp for multiple hockey/basketball/events using the last minute method.
However, sweet 16 is a different animal, especially in markets such as LA, CHI, DAL, etc. There will be plenty of college basketball fans not associated with a particular team that want to go for the scene. There will also be losing team fans that want to dump tickets but the lack of guaranty and hassle may not be worth discount.
I would buy the full strip now, as I do not see good seats being significantly discounted. I (hopefully) bought my full strip before the 1st round games, and the pricing is about the same. Paid about $100 over face for the PR sections at Staples (they take drink and food orders at your seat so you don't have to get up or deal with lines) and that's generally holding steady. 300 level seats aren't great, but there is more softness in those sections.
I will say that the "all in" price is cheaper using stubhub (the primesport.com official reseller has like double the fees).
For "get in door" pricing, its been holding steady, and the $90 difference you pay for the full strip as opposed to just the first session is relatively nominal and you know you'll be in the same seats, etc., if that's important to you.

I'd use that site first. Also, the all session pass gets you Thur and Sat sessions so 4 games
|03/18/2018 - 7:33pm||Depends||
If its truly corner mid, it's a good POV. The Lakers season ticket website let's you preview the vote from every available seat. I bought corner mid last week. 300 level is high

$19,958,458: “Sales and services”
$6,738,688: “Contributions — facilities — net”
$2,000: “Contributions — other”
And that’s not even all the money the NCAA gets.
The NCAA spent all but about $103 million of this revenue.
Its expense sheet, which is consolidated like its revenue sheet, includes:
$560,034,866 in distribution payments to Division I schools
$93,552,478 in expenses for Division I championships, NITs, and programs
$181,007,972 on “association-wide programs”
$38,027,735 for “management and general” costss
The NCAA is a 501 (c) (3) organization, so it doesn’t pay federal income taxes.
The government considers it a nonprofit, a la the Red Cross or Amnesty International.

The Wolverines have the fourth-best odds as 10-1 favorites to win the four-team College Football Playoff in January 2019, according to early odds from the Westgate Las Vegas Sportsbook. Alabama (5-2), Clemson (6-1), and Georgia and Ohio State (8-1) are ahead of Michigan.

I think it's time for UM to go independent. We own a money cannon. We have a brand. Playing in the "toughest division in college football" isn't responsible for any of this. Hurts more than it ever helps. While there may be penalities for opting out of conference, that would be offset by TV down payments. Let's get all ND up in here and win one of two non body bag games per year and be in the discussion and eligible for the mythical national championship. Don't care about MSU. Don't care about Minny. Don't care about Iowa. Rutgers (rivalry game) can pound sand. OSU once a year. Florida once a year. Then service academies and smart schools that need some cashish, I'm all for helping Vanderbilt, Stanford, Northwestern, Columbia, etc. Amiright?!

Do your homework and stop talking without knowing. Ford products don’t hold a candle to the charger, challenger, srt or limited build dodge line. The dodge models are all really fast daily drivers, that have near luxury interiors, including the hellcats etc. And they not only hold value, but often have “equity” at lease end (ie market value > residual). If you drive a top of the line mustang cobra versus a hellcat (or even a standard srt or even a scat pack) there isn’t really a competition. And those of us without our balls in a jar on the shelf do push our vehicles hard and do dust people off the line.

This board is hilarious. I know BA, my kids know BA, and his coaches. He may not make it to MI, but it’s not because of anything spewed by this recruitnik or anyone on this board. Everyone relax.
Literally, some negative nancy posts nonsense, all other posters respond to the nonsense, and everyone looks silly.
And BA in particular, his coaches generally and other CA do read this board. So behave.
