1/4 The war between #good and #evil is not one fought with #guns as much as evil wants it to be. It is a battle between #compassion and #selfishness, between the courage of vulnerability and the fear of others as ruthless competition. It is a struggle against selfishness in
2/4 order to grow, mature, build strength community and hope while serving the common good. Selfishness serves the ego, putting the individual above the group, with a zero-sum attitude that benefits the self only when others suffer or are harmed. The compassionate must unite in

Spotting Sleeper WRs: A 🧵...

One of my favorite parts of the offseason is digging through stats and trying to find the ones that isolate great FF producers at the top, and seeing what unexpected names make appearances alongside the greats.
Put another way, if there was a stat in which the top12 players included names like Kupp, Jefferson, Adams, Hill, Diggs, etc...wouldnt you be interested in the names that appear alongside them? And if there are multiple such stats, what about unexpected names that appear in more?
For this string of stats, I set the minimum targets at 50, which, on rare occasions, eliminates a potential sleeper, but generally just leaves the relevant players (and this practice obviously excludes incoming rookies)

Usually I watch Let It Be on Jan 2, but now with #TheBeatlesGetBack in our ears and in our eyes, I'll do what many of us are probably doing & watching the corresponding days in GB. I also hoping the bite-sized pieces is how I get my 9- and 11-year-olds to sit through all 8 hrs.
They're already pretty well versed in the group, as you'd imagine given their lineage.

Wanted to thread🧵some thoughts on parlays📜and round robins🐦 in sports betting. What are they, when to use them, etc.

Let's start by unlearning a few things.

Parlays are surefire ways to spot newbs with no clue what "expected value" is. They are sucker bets... OR ARE THEY? 👇
What makes a parlay #bad? Well, if you're like me, the parlay=bad mantra has been drilled in for quite some time. And generally, for good reason.

Why? Because most single item sports bets are bad in the first place. Multiplying them together in fact makes them worse.
Joe Public thinks the Dolphins are stone cold locks to cover 3.5 against the Jets on the road. He bets into -110 in an efficient market with no real method to generate an edge, meaning he likely has a 50% chance of being right but needs a 52.38% chance to beat the vig. Image

The entire program of the #Left is that people do not get held responsible for their actions. People who don't work get welfare, people who destroy their health with alcohol and drugs get medical care. In return, no obligations on the recipients.
Now we see it was always a #lie. The obligation was to obey the ruling class. Staying poor was what the bosses wanted the poor to do. Their misery provides the smoke screen for the rulers' real goal: exercising power because they like it.
Cutting people off from medical care because they ate the wrong things, used the wrong drugs, had the wrong kind of sex was evil, because it would remove the rulers' excuses for action. THOSE people have an absolute right to "health care," paid for by the productive.

In yesterday’s discussion of colonies, #AdamSmith was really good on a lot of issues—particularly on condemning murdering Indigenous people, despoiling colonies in search of gold that ain't there, and then pretending you're doing it all for God. #WealthOfTweets #SmithTweets
Today, Smithketeers, will not be such a feel-good day. You will not be heartened. You might want to pour a cup of tea. Or something much stronger. #WealthOfTweets #SmithTweets
Smith starts by noting that the colonies of developed nations where the “natives easily give place to the new settlers” get rich and cultured faster than anywhere else.

That phrase “give place to” cloaks a lot of horrors. (IV.vii.b.1) #WealthOfTweets #SmithTweets

1/6 @Agricura_ZW Agronomy Tip 21/365.
#Good Land Husbandry Techniques.
#Soil & Water Conservation.
There are many alternative soil & water conservation technologies which can be used together with conservation tillage to improve water conservation & soil fertility @basera_john
2/6 Whilst reducing soil erosion problems in your field. One such technology is CONTOUR PLOUGHING. On sloping land it is important to plough along the contour & not up & down the slope. This will help reduce soil erosion & keep moisture in the soil @MoLAWRR_Zim @zfu_official
3/6 So that plants can grow well to give good yields. If you plough along the contour, rainwater will not run down through the field & soil erosion will be less. Rainwater will be stored in the furrows & it will infiltrate into th soil. To ensure @agribusiness110 @agribusinesszw

“Sidney” kept calling for “Donna” and I kept trying to explain to “Sidney” that this number didn’t belong to “Donna” at which point “Sidney” would abruptly hang up on me. Finally called back pretending to be “Donna”, went along with the questions “Yes I Do have excellent credit!”
And eventually said “can I please update my contact info to 669... (yes I do have 669 google voice number for realz)” and “Sidney” was glad to oblige. “Sidney” then went on to ask “What type of car do you own?” ‘Well Sidney, I actually don’t own a car currently!’
“Sidney” then told me she couldn’t help me anymore.

Aww shucks “Sidney” what makes you think you were helping me in the first place!?

Throughout history there were numerous stories, books and beliefs revolving around the concept of ‘#good and #evil’.

In religion, #Philosophy & ethics the concept is very prevalent.

For more information about it please visit :…

#War #WednesdayWisdom Image
But beyond the theory, in actual reality both the Light side or Positive force as well as the Dark side or Negative force do exist. And they have an impact on people, society and also the whole planet.
Is there actually a ‘Light Side’ and a ‘Dark Side’, with people or entities from these two sides waging a war against each other? And what is the impact on us?

~ 2019 RB TD Rate ~

Touches inside the 10 = Fantasy Gold

But which RBs in 2020 are due for regression?

I took a look at the top 30 RBs in touches inside the 10 - compared their TD rate to the league avg & their latest 2 year average (2017 & 2018)

Let's dive in!

THREAD (1/19)
~ 2019 RB TD Rate ~

Below are the top 30 RBs sorted by 10 zone touches (primary axis) as well as their TD rate (secondary)

Red line = wtd league avg TD rate of 30.8%

For reference:

Touches Inside 10 = receptions + rushes
TD rate (%) = TDs inside 10 ÷ Touches inside 10

(2/19) Image
~ 2019 RB TD Rate ~

First off, of the 30 RBs above, here are the RBs that were above the league avg!

Top 5 (% point differential):

1) A Jones (+21.4)
2) Drake (+12.1)
3) D Henry (+10.9)
4) M Ingram (+9.9)
5) Gurley (+9.2)

Day 4 of citizen journalism on #irancoronavirus #COVID19

Picking up from yesterday's thread
There were a few videos from last night. Most important one is this which appears to show a cemetery morgue dedicated to #COVID19 victims in Qom. There are literally dozens of bodies and the voice claims it is the new normal for them.

What does #good look like? Why are cooks still in tents? Does the catering create a unnecessary Logistics burden that modularity can address. Who has the best Catering system in the world? (The ADF quality is excellent but the deployed facilities are a logistics burden). 2/3 Image

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) delivered his last sermon (Khutbah) on the ninth of Dhul Hijjah (12th and last month of the Islamic year), 10 years after Hijrah (migration from Makkah to Madinah) in the Uranah Valley of mount Arafat.
His words were quite clear and concise and were directed to the ENTIRE HUMANITY .
After praising, and thanking Allah he said:

“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again.
Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.
O people, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.
