If you even casually enjoy the #NBA and aren't watching this Nuggets/Timberwolves Game 7 I'm begging you to turn it on right now. This is one of the most entertaining games I've ever seen.

@drewphish I am stunned at how they are defending Jokic! I have seen him blocked twice! Unreal! #nba

I am going to answer this question for everyone:

My answer is here:

Remember:

There were possible crimes, but tax and reporting crimes are not election interference.

There is also a circular thing with Cohen and Pecker telling the court that they expected Trump to pay back the hush money payments.

If they expected to get paid back, it was a loan to Trump and not a contribution. Right?

@GreenFire my biggest frustration is people looking at our foreign policy now in a vacuum saying it’s the worst ever. We bombed Cambodia, we were carpet bombing it! We helped so many ruthless dictators did so many awful things in the name of democracy. It’s a lot better with some awful things still done that I do t agree but I think objectively it is better.

This is fantastic. Being dependent on other countries for 90% of our chips is a vulnerability that most people don't understand but should.

Besides big companies like Intel, there are hundreds of smaller companies that support fabs and the major equipment companies. Due to the extremely strict quality standards, the workers in these companies are typically well paid.

This is a necessary, worthwhile investment.

@philip_cardella @TonyStark excellent point indeed. Every time people dive into these subjects they want to make them extremely simplistic then the reality is quite complicated.

Someone made a comment, and I'd like to address it for everyone.

The comment:

"Addressing outrage surely must be exhausting and you've provided tools and resources to help us. But there's plenty of stuff that flies above the heads of us laypeople that isn't hair-on-fire panic that I turn to you for understanding."

I do not believe the news is "above the heads of laypeople."

I think the laypeople are being confused and made to believe it is over their heads.

@Teri_Kanefield in my experience I don’t see people saying they are over their heads. What is true that it’s such a large flood of stuff coming at them from so many places that it’s difficult to digest and parse. In the past the amount of information that reached the average voter was far more limited. People on average are not able to read and parse through so much causing big disconnects and people chrrry picking stuff. There is no easy way to fix that either.

@TechBean I had noticed that sometime during the football season. I have gigabit fiber and I experienced no issues and it definitely reduced the lag from live. The gold standard is Amazon on TNF their feed was always beating the scoring updates, I have seen similar with Apple mls season pass, everyone else is far behind.

There are a lot of times I'm sympathetic towards referees. Social media amplifies close mistakes. Even when a call's right (like the Bradberry play last year), people will still read conspiracy into what they want.

But getting who did or did not report wrong? You just can't.

imbou,
@imbou@mastodon.sdf.org avatar

@emarktaylor @nfl the lions didn’t help themselves. If only one was reporting why did two walk
up? It’s not like it’s a secret, it’s loud there I can see how it got messed up. It also should be a rule that it’s announced over the PA for clarity not just told to the defense.

@golgaloth I hear this at every level of wealth to those less wealthy. How I hear people making 300k a year bemoaning that their espresso is a 1 dollar higher because we have to pay living wages. I buy a 4 dollar coffee and tip 5 dollars. Not because they make me do it but because I can damn it they deserve it! F these rich but cheap complaining bastards!

Need a favor.
Someone I love has high blood pressure and really should go on a lower-salt diet.

Does anyone have good recipes that actually taste good, are easy to make, and are low in sodium? I'm researching online but it's hard to tell which actually taste good and which don't.

Please boost if you can 🙏

imbou,
@imbou@mastodon.sdf.org avatar

@dancinyogi please remember most of the sodium doesn’t come from salt you add to food, that is a tiny amount, you need to look through what he is eating and cut out high sodium items. The salt from the shaker isn’t much. https://amp.nine.com.au/article/173565a9-b07e-4ca6-b948-e64618cd1499
