I really like Rob C's Survivor podcasts and wanted to give word out to those who haven't given them a listen. http://robhasawebsite.com...ial-bobby-bobdawg-mason/  This one was just posted and has BobDawg on as a guest. It's been great hearing from some of the Survivor alumni weekly. Links: ------  http://robhasawebsite.com/2010/12/18/finale-weekend-special-bobby-bobdawg-mason/
ZANYCAT WROTE: ------------------------- Lol @ Shirin tweeting she was disappointed that Rob didn't include any "strong female Survivor players" on the roundtable that he literally made (as bonus content) all because of her #AlwaysTheVictim How does she still have supporters?
DARKVADER WROTE: ------------------------- How many Asians have we seen on Big Brother since Jun Song, an actually popular, well liked, and successful Asian winner? Yeah exactly. Are you high on crack? Jun is one of the most hated winners in the entire history of the franchise. Even she would admit that. She was never popular or well-liked. Her entire cast hated her guts and she practically had to go into hiding after the season. And there's been a few asians cast the past few seasons. What do you expect considering they are only around 4% of the total US population? I wouldn't expect Big Brother China to have 5 white contestants per season.

NBA Draft tonight, so new thread. And maybe I'll get to edit the thread title after the Decision 2.0
This phenomenon deserves its own thread. Jubal posted an article about a professor showing "micro-aggression" by correcting grammar on papers submitted by African-American students. At another university, the administration had to provide "safe zones" because a speaker might criticize the term "rape culture." The safe space, Ms. Byron explained, was intended to give people who might find comments “troubling” or “triggering,” a place to recuperate. The room was equipped with _cookies, coloring books, bubbles, Play-Doh, calming music, pillows, blankets and a video of frolicking puppies_, as well as students and staff members trained to deal with trauma. Emma Hall, a junior, rape survivor and “sexual assault peer educator” who helped set up the room and worked in it during the debate, estimates that a couple of dozen people used it. At one point she went to the lecture hall — it was packed — but after a while, she had to return to the safe space. “I was feeling bombarded by a lot of viewpoints that really go against my dearly and closely held beliefs,” Ms. Hall said. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/22/opinion/sunday/judith-shulevitz-hiding-from-scary-ideas.html  Growing up, anyone outside of this current generation didn't have to deal with micro-aggressions in life. They had to deal with macro-aggression in life, and had to learn to deal with it. America has gone from the greatest generation that had to cope with trench warfare and sacrifice, to their grand and great grandchildren being the weakest and most insufferable generation we have ever known, incapable of even hearing words they don't like without having to resort to Play-Doh filled safe rooms to help them cope. Do we blame the Lena Dunhams of the world for making it a place where young people can't cope with any sort of criticism without rolling into the fetal position? Or are the helicopter parents who wouldn't let their children do anything that might hurt their feelers or physical being while constantly telling them they are the best without actually having to achieve anything? Or is it liberal academia's new cunning way of shushing speech they don't agree with? All of the above?

My kiddo & her friends like puns a lot, it is kind of a competition for them especially in their physics class. I shared that one with her just now. When they inflict a successful one on somebody they claim to have "broken" them. I'm thinking this is a form of Micro-Aggression. Hwatever shall they do!?!
Baggot did an article on Kelsey in the State Journal. I thought this was an interesting passage: _While losing Sanders was perhaps the toughest recruiting loss for Kelsey in her time at UW, many fans are more focused on two in-state recruiting losses — Arike Ogunbowale of Divine Savior Holy Angels in Milwaukee to Notre Dame and South Shore’s Megan Gustafson to Iowa._ _That, combined with the fact that Kelsey’s previous four recruiting classes included just one state prep player — Bauman of New Berlin Eisenhower — has led some critics to claim she isn’t interested in recruiting Wisconsin players._ _Kelsey has heard that talk and bristles at any such notion and is mystified as to how anyone could think that way. She said she began recruiting Ogunbowale and Gustafson almost from the time she got the job, only to see each decide to go to a program with a winning tradition._ _“Why would I not want Wisconsin kids to come to Wisconsin?” Kelsey said. “Who would make that statement, that I don’t go after Wisconsin kids? That makes absolutely no sense to me. That tells me you have no idea what you’re talking about._ _“I don’t want Arike Ogunbowale? I don’t want Megan Gustafson? I wish they were from a different state so I could go get them? That’s unwise to say something like that. We were on them from Day 1.”_ I don't doubt she was on them from Day 1. But she should have known her actions since becoming head coach at UW would hurt her in recruiting such in-state players with other actors who would have influence on their decisions i.e their high school coaches. Is she not aware, or did Baggot not ask, about the Bowe fiasco and how that put a dark cloud over Kelsey's tenure even before she had her first practice? Does she regret releasing Bowe from her scholarship in such cavalier fashion that it was bound to alienate persons within the women's and girls' basketball community in Wisconsin? Did the player she recruited in her stead do anything? Had UW been successful under Kelsey the whole thing would have been forgotten or written off as new coach's perogative, But she hasn't been successful and that incident is going to come up again and again as to why. As I've said on many occasions: in-state high school coaches can be your best friend or your worst enemy and you don't want them to be your worst enemy. Unless she turns things around next season and find a few friends in the state prep coaching ranks, she's finished and she knows it.
