  1. Absolutely. Defer a year and bang out some gen ed credits at local community college
  2. You know what else I like to see (besides the obvious)? KC liking the SLU Men’s B-ball tweet. Really speaks to the team’s character that even transfer students seem to want their former team to have as much success as possible.
  3. Frankly, I don’t think SLU undergrad is competitive enough of a school to be making these “one in, one out” hypotheticals. It’s not like one 3.5 kid is going to be missing out on attending SLU because some other kid had a 3.6 instead. This probably changes little to nothing at SLU
  4. Didn’t know where else to put this. Really happy for him
  5. This is not true. The CDC is very explicitly keeping the two separated. I posted this link earlier, but here it is again. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/preliminary-in-season-estimates.htm
  6. Good Hochman article on Okoro. Apparently one of the reasons he picked SLU is because we have a major in geospatial information science. Who knew that by North City winning that federal contract, it also was establishing the groundwork for our final 4 run! https://www.stltoday.com/sports/columns/benjamin-hochman/hochman-from-four-star-recruit-to-oregon-to-slu-francis-okoro-settles-into-new-normal/article_6ea0a83a-30d5-53f8-817e-a92e6c2f8601.html
  7. This is incorrect. CDC estimates up to 60,000 deaths from the flu this past flu season (October - April). Wide range in the estimation this year because of COVID. That is very much on par with previous years in the past decade https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/preliminary-in-season-estimates.htm https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/past-seasons.html
  8. Don’t know where you’re coming from with the MSM talk. I’ve been seeing plenty of articles talking about in the past few weeks. https://www.google.com/amp/s/time.com/5830178/meat-shortages-coronavirus/%3famp=true https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usatoday.com/amp/3034748001 https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1193401 https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2020/04/28/business/economy/coronavirus-trump-meat-food-supply.amp.html
  9. Probably should message him directly instead of post about it in random threads.
  10. I believe Texas is doing a phased re-start in a way that makes a lot of sense to me. Businesses can open but with 25% total capacity. Wait a week or two, re-evaluate, then 50% if things go smoothly.
  11. Must’ve been too scared by the thought of going toe-to-toe with a leaner, meaner sophomore JBJ
  12. There's some good stuff in there. And I've said, on this board in fact, that the travel restrictions on China were good. But the lack of testing capabilities is absolutely what has hamstrung our ability to respond, and it is directly responsible for the bulk of the economic hardships we're experiencing. The German CDC had a test ready to go on January 20th, a full month before we had ours. We should have had massive testing and contact tracing implemented by mid-Feb.
  13. People in other countries had died. Why in the world would you wait until an American has died to prepare?
