  1. Wow! Awesome! I appreciate that on both fronts. I had a terrible sleep last night so I will get back to you in a bit. Thank you very much.
  2. Slovenia is in a week lockdown (started Sat). We were over 1600 new cases and yesterday 18 died as ICU is full. We were having 20-40 cases for a few months then it went up to a few hundred for a bit and now it has taken off. The country is 22,000 km2 (takes 3 hours to drive across) and 2 million people. It is insane here. Mandatory masks the moment you step out of your house and huge fines for not wearing them.
  3. Awwwwwwww. I want one but I doubt I can get one in Europe. Also, since you're a mod is it possible to change my name as I no longer live in Mex?
  4. Awesome. I was at the last one. Always love watching this Tourny.
  5. Of course, he scored the GWG after a number of injuries bring him back into the line up. Wouldn't you talk about him too?
  6. Please do not make trade proposals. All you ever want to do is make the team worse. Can you do me a solid and cheer for EDM? They like gutting their team and playing for draft picks too
  7. I do not know Detroit at all. However, if you are at the start of a rebuild and you are bringing rookies and young players, someone who can play defence and help you not get blown out of games is a good start. Keeps everyone trying and believing in themselves.
  8. Since I always see you on here talking about this, I will share a story about what just happened here in Slovenia. A few days ago a teenage student tested positive. She and her class were then quarantined. However, the rest of the school remains open despite the infected student having to walk the hallways to get to her classes etc... BC is not the only ones paddling up the silly creek.
  9. Maybe a raised heart beat is not so bad considering that surviving Covid may be worse than dying from it. The research, posted Sept. 8 to the preprint database bioRxiv, has not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal, but it provides evidence that SARS-CoV-2 can directly infect brain cells called neurons. Although the coronavirus has been linked to various forms of brain damage, from deadly inflammation to brain diseases known as encephalopathies, all of which can cause confusion, brain fog and delirium, there was little evidence of the virus itself invading brain tissue until now. scientists must still figure out how the virus enters the brain in the first place, and whether it can be kept out of the brain, the authors noted in their report. While setting up shop in infected cells, the virus also caused metabolic changes in nearby neurons, which were not infected. These nearby cells died off in large numbers, suggesting that the infected cells might steal oxygen from their neighbors in order to keep producing new virus, the authors noted. Notably, the infected brain tissue was not flooded with immune cells, The disease causes what she calls "storms," disabling periods when she feels shortness of breath, numbness in her hands and feet and her heart rate shoots up from simple tasks. Even taking a shower is possible only during an occasional respite in symptoms. She is one of thousands around the world for whom Covid-19 has turned into a chronic condition. Gahan and other Covid-19 "long haulers" feel they aren't yet getting recognition for an illness that has disabled them for months, with no end in sight.
  10. I have been reading more and more about this. The theory goes something like this. while wearing masks has not stopped Covid from spreading which is why the cases continue to go up. Masks have lowered the amount of covid we are exposed to which has lowered the death rate. The paper, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, puts forth the idea that universal masking may do more than reduce the transmission rate of SARS-CoV-2. It may, the authors propose, also result in greater immunity and fewer severe cases of the disease. Variolation was often done using pus from an infected person’s pox that doctors inserted into a cut. Monica Gandhi, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco and co-author of the paper, and her colleagues hypothesized that universal mask wearing could prevent people from getting severe COVID-19 and serve as a form of inoculation. If a person wearing a mask comes into contact with SARS-CoV-2, the mask could prevent them from ingesting most of the virus. Instead, they become infected with very small amounts of the virus, as those who were variolated for smallpox often did. But Gandhi stresses this is just a theory, and it will always remain a theory, since proving it would require a controlled and blinded study where one group of participants was exposed to a deadly virus without a face mask, and the other was masked. That’s clearly unethical. “It’s sort of like studying condoms for HIV prevention,” she says. “We never did a trial that half the people were randomized to get them and half were not.”
  11. delusional or gets panic attacks.
  12. You might want to fact check that. Almost nobody wears a seatbelt in Mx. Pretty sure that will go for most of Latin America and China as well. I get your point though.
  13. They need better D and a team mentality to block shots - including their stars. A cup for TO is not going to happen soon.

    Anyone playing this anymore? I play on Steam and got back into it after corona and everything that has been going on. Looks to be on track with the new content coming out.
