Re: DOJ Investigation: Re Jeffrey Epstein Plea Deal; 2008 SDFL; 2019 SDNY

Every time I see this kind of thing blow up I'm reminded of Henry the 4th (part II) wherein the non-person Rumour reaches the castle of the Earl of Northumberland - he being a part of a dangerous conspiracy to overthrow Henry. Northumberland's son was defeated by the king but the gossip has opposite...

Re: Immigrants/Migrant Children to be Housed on Military Bases

Is the reason they are using military bases so that the state child welfare agencies don't have jurisdiction? What's the alternative? Send them to bus stations in cities and hope their family connections can arrange travel for them? Do you think border state child welfare agencies have the capacity...

Re: The Weight-Management Thread

Those who "eat nothing " and still gain weight forget to tell you about their nightly expeditions to the fridge. I think it's somewhat more nuanced than that. People convince themselves that some seemingly benign behaviors are suitable and can be acceptable for them at some point in time. "Those tw...

Re: The Weight-Management Thread

Does caloric restriction cause weight loss? Not according to science! GIbberish. "Dietary counseling" is not the same thing as not having something to eat. If you don't eat, you will lose weight.

Re: The Weight-Management Thread

You can put five people with the same BMI and put them on the exact same diet and activity regimen and they will differ somewhat in their ability to loose weight over time if intake is reduced. But, I'm sorry for the seeming over-simplification, if you consume more calories and fat than your body ne...

If the company has $80B in sales, I can guarantee that they have a large staff of in-house lawyers who are VERY experienced at litigating cases like yours. You won’t have a chance on your own.
