Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

This is so true, when faced with trolls.
From Prof Michael Berry, #UCLA, translator of Wuhan Diary at today's AAS Digital Dialogues Webinar. ImageImage
Every Indian should listen to and reflect the presentation given by @NitashaKaul at today's AAS Digital Dialogues webinar . She described the vile tactics used by the Hindutva ecosystem of coercion, control and 'othering' of anyone who dares challenge their propaganda
@NitashaKaul "India is no longer the World's largest democracy" Image

#UCLA getting humiliated in Eugene early in a game that Bruins should have never agreed to play and now #MUFC goal-less against the worst team in PL. This is all going as well as Joe Biden’s transition.
Thankfully @peacock_adds at least enables me to watch @mehdirhasan instead of just having to get annoyed over Ole’s drab lineups at OT. #MUFC
Lucky for #UCLA - Oregon’s D is just about as effective as Pelosi’s oversight of Trump’s regime

.@SenFeinstein has been an embarrassment to the majority of my fellow Californians she is supposed to represent.

As a Dem its wort noting both @SenSchumer + DiFi share the blame was this disgraceful performance by @JudiciaryDems to legitimize an illegitimate scotus nomination.
This perfectly encapsulates the dysfunctional state of @SenateDems - the Democratic party - and the current political system. We have no other option but to vote for Democrats because the other choice is fascism - but this is just repulsive crap from @dscc
Golly gee whiz - who could have predicted this?

It’s late at night and once again I find myself thinking of the Walter Wheat Bunny, a sandwich at UCLA that was, IIRC, honey wheat bread, cream cheese, peanut butter, bananas, pineapple, and I think raisins?
The vegetarian options were VERY slim in 2006 and tbh it was fucking delicious
I can find no trace of this sandwich online, goddamnit

La democracia le dió a los venezolanos una Universidad como la Simón Bolívar, han egresado 25 mil ingenieros, urbanistas, licenciados en diferentes carreras y profesores de altísimo nivel. Para su creación se designó una Comisión presidencial encabezada por Luis Manuel Peñalver.
La democracia encontró un vacío en áreas como las ciencias, las tecnologías y demás carreras que son indispensables para el desarrollo de un país. Al presidente Raul Leoni se le presentó el Proyecto elaborado por los expertos y el 18 de julio de 1967 firma el Decreto de creación.
Quiénes participaron en la creación de la Universidad Simón Bolivar, aportando ideas y haciendo propuestas que fueron debidamente escuchadas y tomadas en cuenta?
Las Academias, sobre todo la de Historia y la Sociedad Bolivariana en lo atinente a darle el nombre de El Libertador

Ok I need the trusted news sources I lean on to tell me how real this is:
A website that has up-to-date extensive data indicating Dem #electionfraud based on actual vote total differentials to exit polls in almost every state WAY outside accepted range
It indicates the potential for vote flipping, plus is always in Biden’s favor and shows a lower percentage for Bernie - almost across the board. There is no state in which it works in Bernie’s favor (ie Bernie outperformed the exit poll by the acceptable range.
MI - where Biden won, but not by nearly as big a margin. If you believe the Buzzfeed “glitch” was really a glitch.…

This MS thesis from #UCLA of Indoor/outdoor PM2.5 in LA County showed: No AC use versus constant use and gas (rather than electric) oven were associated with higher indoor PM2.5 concentrations…
What does it mean? I think it means that if you don't have AC, you open your windows more and this increases indoor PM2.5 in urban locations with high outdoor #AirPollution. AND you should get rid of your gas oven.
using a vent/stove hood and opening the windows while cooking does lower indoor air pollution levels. BUT neither of these predictors were formally statistically significant in this study (although their inclusion did contribute to the improvement in model fit)

The #UCRegents suing #UCLAHealth’s radiologist & #UCLA professor Robert Lufkin MD (CA lic#G43135) is like the clichés about irony:

👏The pot calling the kettle black
👏People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones
👏Birds of a feather flock together…
The state of California’s #UCRegents suing Robert Lufkin MD is suspicious to me, as I have reason to think Lufkin is a suspected #MandatedReporter #Accomplice of the #UCRegents & #UCLAHealth’s #CriminallyFraudulentPrivateMarketDiscipline that depends on #RegulatoryCapture.

Woolsey Fire Burns Nuclear Meltdown Site that State Toxics Agency Failed to Clean Up
Statement by Physicians for Social Responsibility - Los Angeles (@psrla)
#SSFL #WoolseyFire #SimiValley #OakPark #BellCanyon
The #WoolseyFire began on the property of the contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory. #SSFL, a former nuclear and rocket engine testing site, is one of the most contaminated sites in the nation.
#SimiValley #OakPark #VenturaCounty #BellCanyon #WestHills #SFV
"Santa Susana Field Laboratory (#SSFL / #Rocketdyne) burned in the #WoolseyFire, threatening toxic exposures from contaminated dust, smoke, ash & soil. The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) denies risk that it created by delaying the long promised cleanup." -@PSRLA

About 1/3 of you guessed right: #AmericanEnglish has about 14 vowel sounds. Here's a chart with 15 vowels (from #ucla) with examples and their #phonetic symbols (#ipa). The IPA is useful but controversial since there are euro-centric biases in its representation.
#vowels are cool since the range of them is huge. Some languages, like #hawaiian have 3, while #xoo has 31.

Usually, the less sounds in a language, the more complex the tone or word structure and the reverse.

Check out info on your language's sounds:!
CORRECTION: #hawaiian has 5 vowels. Oops. However, many other #languages have 3 vowel systems, like #cheyenne

🚨@AGBecerra @ericgarcetti @tedlieu @KamalaHarris @SenFeinstein you need to focus. Why the hell does @UCLA lease a baseball field on property donated to @DeptVetAffairs your big solution is to let them sleep in their cars there? Hell no.
You have 388 acres DONATED and the $16.5 million dollar deal with #UCLA is supposed to include facilities for #Veterans but it’s stuck in limbo over an environmental study?GTFO @AGBecerra needs to file a lawsuit against someone other than @realDonaldTrump and fix this
Why did the VA pay $11 million for parking fees with #WestsideServices you are all ABSENT and @tedlieu you can talk about your service all damn day but you never mention this travesty. #VoteDemsOUT
