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.

Alright #CFBPlayoff viewers. Lets go through this week's poll. Once again, it was, as it always has been, predictable. The model was off an average of 1 spot per team for the entire Top 25 poll this week. So let's take a look at some resumes shall we? #CFB 🧵
If you took a peak at this projection yesterday, you were prepared for alot of what you saw last night. The resumes are all laid out very similarly to the way the Playoff Committee views them. #ThereIsNoEyeTest
25 #HailState 6-4
SOS: 29, QW: 4, T25W: 2, GC: 3.3

Despite the horrible game control at 3.3, MSU snuck its way into the poll. They modeled at 26 so this isn't all that surprising. They are riding their good SOS, 4 QWs, and 2 T25Ws at this point. No surprise.

Yesterday, @marcgarneau convened a meeting about Canada’s National Action Plan on #WomenPeaceSecurity – to make sure we’re following through on commitments, adapting to challenges, & looking ahead.

It was remarkable for many reasons. A thread: 🧵
The head of every National Action Plan partner was there:

✔️ 11 Ministers
✔️ @CDS_Canada_CEMD
✔️ @CommrRCMPGRC
✔️ @MartaMorganUSS & fellow senior leaders

The meeting was a frank discussion & exchange among leaders – not a public event.

(The public part is happening too - The government tabled a progress report in Parliament today & will share an independent assessment of the Action Plan when the report is complete.)

Some highlights from @ChallengesForum @nupinytt @IPSS_Addis webinar on the #GlobalOrder & future of #PeaceOps

3) 63% of webinar participants agreed that #A4P can lead to greater consensus among Member States on @UNPeacekeeping #PeaceOps

This is the last night of spring break at PCB. There’s a hot girl at the end of the bar. All of her friends have companions and she’s alone. It’s the last chance to score after striking out all week. We can do this. #wps
Just ask her questions and listens. Don’t try and get her toasted. Make a connection. You have until closing time. #wps
Last call not far away. Make sure you compliment her braids
