2022.01.24 20:43 Normal_Kaleidoscope "cata"
Kinda long story. I'll try to make it short. In an Italo-Romance language that I speak (Apulian) there's this preposition, which we pronounce as [akkaˈta]. It roughly means "by" or "at". For example you want to say that you are at Maria's place; in Apulian this would be akkata Maria. This sounded like a weird preposition for Romance, and of course I went to check if Latin had something similar. According to Wiktionary Latin had cata, which in turn comes from Greek κατά (which could also be prefixed as κατα-), in both cases with the meaning of being against something, leaning again something, etc. Now, always according to Wiktionary, the Latin cata evolved into cada in Romance (with a distributive sense, meaning 'each'). My question is: what was the use of cata in Latin? Did it have a meaning similar to the same word in Greek, or did it have a meaning more similar to what Romance has?

2022.01.24 20:43 skunkboy72 What is going on with the Youtuber JP Sears? He used to talk about zen philosophy and posted satirical sketches. Now he is being labeled a Nazi?
I used to watch JP Sears' funny videos on youtube. Like this gem about meat eaters. I used to think he was satirizing his own actual views, cause he also had videos where he presented Buddhist teachings and supported gay marriage. I liked both his satire and more philosophical videos and I could clearly tell what was satire. Up until at least summer of 2020 he was still doing satire from a liberal stance, such as this one about systematic racism. I eventually just sorta stopped watching him for whatever reason and moved on.
But today his new video about Biden's mental health popped up on my youtube and it was like a completely different dude. Making fun of Biden for being slow, showing no compassion like he used to, talking about a 'fight to defeat the mandates, and then bizarrely selling the same blue light glasses and ironically referring to them 'evidence based' when he is also espousing definitely not evidence based views about covid vaccines.
Posts on reddit are labeling him as a nazi alt right q follower. Like what happened? Can anyone point to a video his where this shift starts?
Going back to his old satire video about conspiracy therories he seems to have completely lost that part of his reasoning.

2022.01.24 20:43 JimmerManiaForever Market Value vs. Economic Value: The Ben Simmons Conundrum
To be clear, I am not a 76ers fan or a 76ers hater, nor am I saying that Morey should or should not accept any of the trade rumors that we’ve heard are on the table. I’m simply clearing up a few misconceptions that I see a lot on this sub regarding how much Ben Simmons is “worth” or how “valuable” he is.
Benjamin David Simmons (born 20 July 1996) is an Australian professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played college basketball for one season with the Louisiana State University (LSU) Tigers, after which he was named a consensus first-team All-American and the USBWA National Freshman of the Year. Simmons was selected with the first overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft by the 76ers. After sitting out a year due to an injured right foot, he was named the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2018 and was selected three times to the NBA All-Star Game. As the result of a holdout from the 76ers following the 2020-21 season, Simmons is the most-fined player in NBA history.
Simmons was born in the Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy to father Dave and mother Julie. His father is an African-American expatriate who became a naturalised citizen of Australia, and his mother is a white Australian. He was raised alongside five brothers and sisters—Melissa, Emily, Liam, Sean and Olivia—the first four being from his mother's previous marriage. His father played college basketball for Oklahoma City University in the United States before turning professional with the Melbourne Tigers in Australia's National Basketball League in 1989.
Simmons was raised in Newcastle from the age of 18 months while his father played and coached in the city. Simmons began playing basketball at the age of seven in the Newcastle Hunters' under-12 representative team and played two more years for Lake Macquarie and Newcastle. While in Newcastle, he also played junior rugby league.
At age 10, Simmons returned to Melbourne and began playing junior basketball for the Knox Raiders. Along with basketball, he also played Australian rules football at the junior level. In year 7, while attending Whitefriars College, Simmons was named MVP after he helped Whitefriars win the Year-7 Division 1A Basketball premiership.
As a teenager, Simmons was torn between his two loves of basketball and Australian rules football, but he eventually decided to focus on basketball. In year 9, at the age of 15, Simmons played basketball for Box Hill Senior Secondary College at the 2011 Australian Schools Championships before taking up a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport in 2012. Later that year, Simmons made his first appearance in the United States at the renowned Pangos All-American Camp for basketball prospects. Despite being only 15 years old, he was chosen to represent Australia at the 2012 FIBA Under-17 World Championship.
Considered a five-star recruit by ESPN.com, Simmons was listed as the No. 1 power forward and the No. 1 player in the nation in 2015.
He attended LSU but underwhelmed and flunked out due towards to his porn addictions
He withdrew from school at the conclusion of the season with plans to move immediately to Phoenix, Arizona in advance of the NBA draft. He also signed with American sports agency Klutch Sports, which is primarily owned by Rich Paul who was reportedly “horny” at the time.
On 3 July 2016, Simmons signed his rookie scale contract with the 76ers and joined the team for the 2016 NBA Summer League. While he shot the ball poorly during his first three Summer League games, Simmons was praised for his court awareness and passing ability for a big man. He went on to be named in the All-Las Vegas Summer League First Team, and in six Summer League games, he averaged 10.8 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game.
On 30 September 2016, Simmons rolled his right ankle during the 76ers' final training camp scrimmage. After receiving an X-ray and MRI of the foot and ankle, it was determined that Simmons had suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone of his right foot and was estimated to miss three to four months. On 24 February 2017, he was ruled out for the entire 2016–17 NBA season after tests revealed that his broken right foot had not fully healed.
2017–18 season: Rookie season
Some pundits doubted his strength, fitness, and scoring prowess after a full season on the sidelines, with only an outside chance for Rookie of the Year. In his NBA debut on 18 October 2017, Simmons had 18 points and 10 rebounds in a 120–115 season-opening loss to the Washington Wizards. In his third game, on 21 October, Simmons recorded 18 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists in a 128–94 loss to the Toronto Raptors, joining Oscar Robertson as the only players ever to post 10-plus points, 10-plus rebounds, and 5-plus assists in their first three NBA games. In his fourth game, on 23 October, Simmons recorded his first career triple-double with 21 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists in a 97–86 win over the Detroit Pistons, becoming the third rookie after Robertson (1960) and Art Williams (1967) to record a triple-double in his first four games. He went on to become the only player in NBA history to begin a season with at least 170 points, 100 rebounds, and 80 assists in his team's first 10 games. On 29 November, he had 31 points and a career-high 18 rebounds in a 118–113 win over the Wizards. On 22 February, he scored a career-high 32 points, making two free throws with 5.6 seconds left to complete Philadelphia's rally from five points down in the final minute as the 76ers beat the Chicago Bulls 116–115. On 15 March against the New York Knicks, Simmons recorded his second consecutive triple-double and joined Robertson and Magic Johnson as the third rookie in NBA history to reach 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, and 500 assists. His triple-double against the Knicks was his eighth of the season, thus entering second place for most triple-doubles in a rookie season, trailing only Robertson (26). On 19 March against the Charlotte Hornets, Simmons recorded 11 points, 12 rebounds, and 15 assists, and it became the third rookie to have 0 turnovers in a triple-double game. On 24 March, he recorded his 10th triple-double of the season with 15 points, 12 rebounds, and 13 assists in a 120–108 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. On 26 March, he had 11 assists in a 123–104 win over the Denver Nuggets, topping Allen Iverson (567) to set the team rookie record for assists. On 6 April, he had 27 points, 15 rebounds, and 13 assists in a 132–130 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, leading the 76ers to their 13th straight win. He was subsequently named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday 2 April to Sunday 8 April. In the 76ers' penultimate game of the regular season on 10 April, the 76ers set a franchise record with their 15th consecutive victory following a 121–113 win over the Atlanta Hawks, with Simmons recording 13 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists. The 76ers finished the regular season with a 16th straight win to earn the Eastern Conference's No. 3 seed in the playoffs. Their record of 52–30 set the best team mark since 2001, when they went 56–26. At the conclusion of the regular season, Simmons was named the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for games played in March and April, earning the award for the third consecutive month and the fourth time overall.
In his NBA playoff debut in game 1 of the 76ers' first-round playoff series against the Miami Heat, Simmons had 17 points, 14 assists, and nine rebounds in a 130–103 win. In game 4, Simmons helped the 76ers take a 3–1 lead in the series with 17 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in a 106–102 win. He became the first rookie since Magic Johnson in 1980 to have a playoff triple-double, and became the fifth rookie with a triple-double in the playoffs, joining Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry Lucas and Tom Gola. Simmons helped the 76ers move on to the second round of the playoffs with a 4–1 defeat of the Heat, as he recorded 14 points and 10 rebounds in a 104–91 win in game 5. The 76ers went on to lose in five games to the Boston Celtics in the second round, with Simmons recording 18 points, eight rebounds, and six assists in a 114–112 loss in game 5. At the season's end, Simmons was named the NBA Rookie of the Year and earned NBA All-Rookie First Team honours.
2018–19 season: Rookie Season In September 2018, Simmons announced that during the off-season he began working to improve his shooting with his brother Liam Tribe-Simmons, former assistant coach for University of California, Riverside Highlanders men's basketball team and Southwest Baptist Bearcats men's basketball team, and would continue to do so for the remainder of the season. In the 76ers' season opener on 16 October 2018, Simmons recorded 19 points, 15 rebounds, and eight assists in a 105–87 loss to the Boston Celtics. Two days later, he had a triple-double with 13 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists in a 127–108 win over the Chicago Bulls. He reached his 13th career triple-double with 2:34 left in the third and became the first Sixer to ever get one in a home opener. On 2 January, he scored 29 points in a 132–127 win over the Phoenix Suns. On 5 January, he recorded his sixth triple-double of the season with 20 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists in a 106–100 win over the Dallas Mavericks. On 11 January, he had 23 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds in a 123–121 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. Two days later, he had 20 points, 22 rebounds, and nine assists in a 108–105 win over the New York Knicks. On 15 January, with 20 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assists against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Simmons became the second fastest player in NBA history to reach 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, and 1,000 assists, trailing only Oscar Robertson. Simmons reached this milestone in 125 games, which is 9 games faster than Magic Johnson and 33 games faster than LeBron James. On 23 January, he had 21 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds in a 122–120 win over the San Antonio Spurs. On 31 January, he received his first All-Star selection as an Eastern Conference reserve, becoming the first Australian to receive the honour. On 28 February, he recorded his ninth triple-double of the season with 11 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists in a 108–104 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Two days later, he had 25 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists in a 120–117 loss to the Golden State Warriors. In game two of the 76ers' first-round playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets, Simmons had his second career postseason triple-double with 18 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds to lead Philadelphia to a 145–123 win. In game three of the series, Simmons scored a postseason career-high 31 points on 11-of-13 shooting in a 131–115 win over the Nets, putting the 76ers up 2–1 in the series.
2019–20 season: Rookie Season
On 23 October 2019, in the 2019–20 NBA season opener against divisional rivals the Boston Celtics, Simmons scored 24 points on 68% shooting and recorded nine assist and eight rebounds in a 107–93 win. On 22 November, Simmons recorded his first triple-double of the season and his 24th of his career after recording 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 13 assists in a 115–104 win over the San Antonio Spurs. On 7 December, Simmons scored a career-high 34 points, while making 12 out of 14 shots in a 141–94 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, which included his second NBA career three-pointer. On 23 December, Simmons recorded yet another triple-double this time completing the feat while recording a career high 17 assists in a win over the Detroit Pistons.
On 20 January 2020, Simmons scored 34 points and recorded 12 assists and 12 rebounds in a 117–111 win over the Brooklyn Nets. On 30 January, it was announced Simmons had been awarded with his second All-Star appearance. Simmons was drafted by Team LeBron and went on to score 17 points, 5 assists, and 6 rebounds in a Team LeBron win. In a 22 February game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Simmons left the game in the first quarter with an apparent lower back injury. It was revealed Simmons had a nerve impingement in his lower back and the team listed him as "out for an extended period of time". Simmons was sidelined until the NBA returned after pausing play due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Simmons returned to play on 1 August 2020 during the NBA Bubble where he scored 19 points along with 13 rebounds and 5 rebounds in a loss to the Indiana Pacers. Simmons sat out the playoffs due to a knee injury, and the 76ers were eliminated 4–0 by the Boston Celtics.
At the end of the season, Simmons was the 2020 NBA steals leader, and he was named to the All-NBA Third Team and the NBA All-Defensive First team.
2020–21 season: Rookie Season
On 15 February 2021, Simmons recorded a double-double with a career-high 42 points and 12 assists in a 134–123 loss to the Utah Jazz. Simmons finished the season averaging 14.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game.
During the playoffs, Simmons struggled at the free-throw line and became the worst free-throw shooter in postseason history with at least 67 attempts (34.2%), surpassing both Wilt Chamberlain (38%) and Shaquille O'Neal (37.4%). Following a Game 7 loss in the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Atlanta Hawks, Simmons came under heavy scrutiny due to his inability to shoot and lack of aggressiveness on offense. Simmons did not attempt a single shot in the final quarter in five out of the seven games, which many attributed to his lack of confidence in shooting free throws. Simmons averaged 9.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 8.6 assists per game and shot 60% from the field and 33% (15-for-45) from the free throw line against the Hawks.
2021–22 season: Holdout from 76ers during his rookie season
After the 76ers' Game 7 loss in the 2021 Eastern Conference Semifinals, Joel Embiid cited Simmons' decision to pass up an open dunk as the turning point in the game. A reporter asked 76ers coach Doc Rivers if Simmons could be a point guard on a championship team, to which Rivers responded: "I don't even know how to answer that right now."
Simmons, as he had indicated, missed training camp. He also did not play in the preseason and even placed his Philadelphia home on the market for $3.1 million. His absence led to the 76ers organization withholding and putting in escrow $8.25 million that would have otherwise been owed to him on October 1, signifying over a quarter of the $31.59 million owed to him for the 2021–22 season.
Simmons returned to the team on October 11, 2021. On October 19, Simmons was thrown out of practice by Rivers due to declining several times to substitute into a drill and was suspended by the 76ers for one game, the team's season-opener against the New Orleans Pelicans, due to conduct detrimental to the team. Simmons had previously been fined $1.4 million due to his absence from four preseason games, missed practices, on-court workouts, and meetings. After Simmons told the 76ers his absence was due to a mental health issue, team officials stopped fining him, but later resumed the fines after he continued not to cooperate with them. Due to the repeated fines for missed games, Simmons became the most-fined player in NBA history, with reports suggesting he had surpassed $10 million by the end of 2021. In January 2022, though he had not returned to game play, it was reported the 76ers had stopped fining Simmons because of his renewed cooperation in attending team meetings and counseling sessions.
Stauskas grew up in Mississauga, Ontario, and gravitated toward basketball during his childhood. Stauskas has never played ice hockey and has barely played street hockey. He tried soccer at age six, but a broken arm put an end to that. His first experience with basketball came as a member of the Aušra Sports Club, which is a Toronto-based traveling team for children of Lithuanian descent. Stauskas grew up a Raptors fan with Vince Carter as his favorite player. At age eight or nine, he "played" Carter one-on-one at a Raptors open practice for fans held at Air Canada Centre, which boosted his enthusiasm for the sport. Ever since then shooting a basketball has been his favorite form of recreation. He became so devoted to basketball that his head coach at Michigan, John Beilein, said in 2013,
He doesn't know anything about hockey, he doesn't know anything about football. The other day we had him try to throw a baseball pass as a press breaker. And he had never thrown a baseball. In fifth grade, his parents gave him and his brother a choice on how to landscape their backyard: a swimming pool, a putting green or a basketball court, leading to the family backyard court. He and his older brother Peter would play at all hours and all conditions, including a 2006 ice storm that was so severe that, as he recalled in 2013, "The ball couldn't hit the backboard without slipping off, but we didn't care."
His brother claims that Stauskas scored about 50 points a game in middle school. For much of his youth, he and future Gonzaga point guard Kevin Pangos attended basketball camps together, regularly playing one-on-one while other campers took breaks from basketball for other activities. Until 2009, Stauskas played for Loyola Catholic Secondary School. He averaged 15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in 2007–08 and 32 points, 14 rebounds and 7.5 assists in 2008–09. Its basketball team nearly disbanded before Stauskas's grade 10 season in 2008–09, when Loyola was in danger of not fielding a team because school policy required the presence of a teacher. Although his father, a computer consultant, was willing to volunteer as a coach, no teacher was willing to serve. Stauskas's father finally found a French teacher who sat in the gym and graded papers while his father coached. In the meantime, Stauskas joined the premier Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) team in Toronto, run by Ro Russell. Some of Russell's prior players, such as Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph had gone to the United States to complete their scholastic years. Stauskas, not wishing to risk not having a team to play on after the crisis of 2008–2009, spent the 2009–10 academic year at South Kent School, but the forested rural campus made him homesick and he transferred to St. Mark's School the following year. He missed the 2009–10 basketball season as a result of a hip injury. Michigan Wolverines men's basketball head coach John Beilein became familiar with Stauskas during the Summer 2010 NBA camp prior to Stauskas's junior year. He visited Michigan that summer and was also being recruited by Villanova, Iowa State, Georgetown, Notre Dame, Florida and Providence. By the time he arrived at St. Mark's, he was expected to be an All-State performer. In the 2011 NEPSAC Class AA Championship game, Stauskas led St. Mark's in scoring with 17 points against Nerlens Noel and the Tilton School, but St. Marks lost 72–56. On March 26, 2011, Stauskas made a verbal commitment to Michigan. This commitment made him the second member of Michigan's recruiting class of 2012. That summer he scored 27 points in an exhibition of Canadian high school all-stars against the Baylor Bears men's basketball team.
Prior to his senior year, ESPN named him as one of the top 25 three-point shooters in the national class of 2012. At the time of their November 2011 National Letter of Intent signings, Stauskas, Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary gave Michigan a consensus top 10 entering class for its 2012 class. Stauskas visited Michigan along with future teammate Robinson to see the 61–56 New Year's Day 2012 victory by the 2011–12 Wolverines team over Minnesota. Then Stauskas led St. Mark's to 67–57 victory in a 2012 Hoophall Classic contest with 16 points against Friends Central. As the season progressed, Stauskas (and Robinson) improved in the national player ratings to offset McGary's slide and maintain a top-rated class. He scored 19 to lead his school to a 59–53 2012 NEPSAC Class AA Championship game victory over Noel's Tilton. Stauskas earned the NEPSAC championship game MVP. He was selected to the 2012 All-NEPSAC Class AA first team (along with teammate Kaleb Tarczewski). Following these honors, Stauskas's stock and rankings continued to rise.
Discussion about him entering the 2014 NBA draft began when he got hot in January 2014 and his father told Sports Illustrated, "He knows all he has to do is keep his nose to the grindstone for another couple of months, and there's a really good possibility he might be able to go Pro." However, a few days later, Stauskas attempted to distance himself from his father's statements and apologized to his fans. Following the season, Stauskas, who was regarded as a likely late first round selection, said he would need some time to process his decision and that he would make his decision after talking to his coaches and family. On April 6, Stauskas said he would make his decision within the next week or so. On April 7, David Aldridge rated Stauskas as the number one potential draft entrant among shooting guards (ahead of Harris, James Young, and Andrew Harrison) and a late lottery selection. Others agree that Stauskas is a likely late lottery selection. Stauskas and teammates McGary and Robinson all submitted evaluation requests to the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee which must respond by April 14, giving the players until April 27 to make themselves eligible for the draft if they so choose. On April 10, reports emerged that Stauskas had decided to go pro, but he denied he had made a decision. The reports were based on rumors that Stauskas had decided to hire Mark Bartelstein as his agent. Bartelstein is the father of former Michigan teammate Josh Bartelstein, and agent for former teammate Tim Hardaway Jr. On April 15, in a joint press conference with Robinson on the Big Ten Network, Stauskas declared for the 2014 NBA draft. During his two years with Michigan, the school enjoyed its winningest two-year stretch in school history marked by a total of 59 wins. Of Michigan's prior 14 early NBA draft entrants, 10 were selected in the first round and 3 in the second. Stauskas did sign with Bartelstein (along with teammate McGary). On May 5, Stauskas threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.
At the May NBA Draft Combine, Stauskas opted to sit out of the shooting drills, but did elect to participate in official anthropometric measurements, strength/agility drills and team meetings. Stauskas participated in strength and agility testing along with 13 shooting guards, finishing fifth in running vertical jump, sixth in standing vertical leap, seventh in the shuttle run, ninth in the three-quarter court sprint and 11th in the lane agility drill. Stauskas was drafted 8th overall by the Sacramento Kings. He is the highest Michigan selection since Jamal Crawford went 8th in the 2000 NBA draft. With teammates McGary and Robinson also being drafted, it marked the first time Michigan had at least three draft picks since the 1990 NBA draft. With Burke and Hardaway having been drafted the year before, every player that started in the 2013 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship Game was drafted either in the 2013 or 2014 NBA draft.
Stauskas committed to represent the Sacramento Kings in 2014 NBA Summer League. Although Stauskas was expected to be an NBA shooting guard, he would be vying with 2013 NBA draft eighth overall selection Ben McLemore for playing time. Since the two may be on the court at the same time, Stauskas was expected to play some point guard in the Summer League as preparation for regular season possibilities. He posted a video of his preparation for the 2014 NBA Summer League.
On July 8, 2014, Stauskas signed a rookie scale contract with the Sacramento Kings. During the 2014 NBA Summer League Stauskas was a starting member of the Summer League Champions. In the 2014–15 NBA.com Rookie Survey at the annual Rookie Photo Shoot on August 6, Stauskas was named by his peers as the second best shooter in the Rookie class behind Doug McDermott. During his rookie pre-season, he got a lot of publicity for the statement "I understand that I'm a rookie and I'm white, so people are going to attack me" because of stereotypes about race and his unproven and presumably weak defensive skills. Stauskas was surprised by the attention the statement received. In his first week in the league, he had a 3-block game against the Los Angeles Clippers. On December 8 in his first game against Utah and former teammate and fellow Big Ten Player of the Year Burke, Stauskas posted career highs of 15 points and 8 rebounds. Stauskas again posted 15 points against the New York Knicks and former Michigan teammate Tim Hardaway Jr. on March 3. On March 24, he received the nickname "Sauce Castillo" via social media after a closed captioning error. Stauskas started in the Kings' April 15 season finale against the Los Angeles Lakers and tallied 5 assists. It was his first and only start of the season.
On July 10, 2015, Stauskas was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers along with Carl Landry, Jason Thompson, a future first round pick, and the rights to swap first round picks in 2016 and 2017, in exchange for the rights to Artūras Gudaitis and Luka Mitrović. During the preseason, Stauskas was impaired by a right tibia stress reaction. Although he felt recovered from the stress reaction by the beginning of the season, he missed the October 28 season opener with back spasms. The 2015–16 76ers team played no players over the age of 24 or with more than 3 years of NBA experience on opening night. Stauskas joined the young team's rotation in October 30 against the Utah Jazz with a 12-point debut performance. Stauskas moved into the starting lineup on November 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He posted a career-high tying 15 points against his idol LeBron James. On November 7, Stauskas posted a career-high 18 points and career-high tying five assists against the Orlando Magic. He tallied at least 12 points in each of his first five games of action for Philadelphia.
However, by mid November, Stauskas was deep in a shooting slump. He was scoreless in back-to-back starts, going 0-for-10 (0–5 3-point shots) combined against the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks on November 14 and 16. Fortunately for Stauskas, his backup, Isaiah Canaan, was in a simultaneous slump, going 3-for-20 in the same games. However, Stauskas had a left knee contusion on November 23 against the Minnesota Timberwolves and was sidelined for the second half and the subsequent three-game road trip. He missed only one game and returned to the lineup on November 27 in limited minutes off the bench. On December 1, Stauskas and the 76ers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 103–91. The win ended the longest losing streak in the history of major professional sports in the United States (28 games going back to the prior season) and the worst start in NBA history (tied with the 2009–10 New Jersey Nets at 0–18). Stauskas went scoreless in 4 consecutive appearances between December 16 and 22. He then did not play on December 23 when the 76ers played against the Milwaukee Bucks. When the 76ers defeated the Phoenix Suns in new point guard Ish Smith's first game with the team for their second win of the season (snapping a 12-game losing streak and a 23-game road losing streak) on December 26, Stauskas was coming off the bench and contributed 17 points. As Stauskas endured an up and down season, he became Kendall Marshall's father's target of blame for Marshall's lack of playing time on January 2. That night against the Los Angeles Clippers, Stauskas posted 18 points on 6–8 three-point shooting. Stauskas returned to the starting lineup for the 76ers on January 4 against the Timberwolves for the 76ers 4th win of the season. However, he was injured in overtime of the January 15 contest against the Chicago Bulls and missed three games before returning to the lineup on January 25 against the Boston Celtics. Stauskas scored 18 points again on March 15 against the Brooklyn Nets. Stauskas established a new career high on March 18 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, scoring 23 points.
After the first week of the 2016–17 NBA season, the 76ers exercised the fourth-year team option. On November 19, 2016, Stauskas scored 21 points, while shooting 8-for-9 in a 120–105 win over the Phoenix Suns. He posted a career-high 24 points on 4-for-7 three-point shooting on March 4 in a 136–106 loss to Detroit. On March 20 against Orlando and March 22 against Oklahoma City, Stauskas reached 20 points in consecutive contests for the first time in his NBA career.
On December 7, 2017, Stauskas was traded, along with Jahlil Okafor and a 2019 second round draft pick, to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Trevor Booker. In his debut for the Nets on December 15, 2017, Stauskas scored a team-high 22 points in a 120–87 loss to the Toronto Raptors. In his first few weeks with Brooklyn, he made 19 of his first 33 shots (57.6%) from beyond the three-point line and set a career high with 7 made three-point shots (on 7-for-10 shooting) on December 27 against the New Orleans Pelicans, which tied a Nets franchise record by a performance off the bench.
On July 5, 2018, Stauskas signed with the Portland Trail Blazers. In his debut for the Trail Blazers in their season opener on October 18, 2018, Stauskas came off the bench to score a career high-tying 24 points in a 128–119 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
On February 4, 2019, Stauskas was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers along with Wade Baldwin IV and two second-round picks for Rodney Hood. Three days later, he was acquired by the Houston Rockets in a three-team trade that involved the Cavaliers and Sacramento Kings. Hours later, he was traded again, this time to the Indiana Pacers alongside Baldwin, a 2021 second-round draft pick and the rights to Maarty Leunen, in exchange for cash considerations. He was waived by the Pacers on February 8. On February 11, Stauskas signed with the Cavaliers.
Baskonia (2019–2020) Edit On August 1, 2019, Stauskas signed a one-year deal with Spanish EuroLeague club Kirolbet Baskonia. On February 12, 2020, Baskonia and Stauskas agreed to terminate the contract.
On December 3, 2020, Stauskas was signed to a training camp contract by the Milwaukee Bucks. He was waived at the end of training camp.
Raptors 905 (2021) Edit On January 27, 2021, Stauskas was included on the Raptors 905 roster for the 2020–21 season.
Grand Rapids Gold (2021) Edit On October 16, Stauskas was signed by the Denver Nuggets, but was waived later that day. He subsequently joined the Grand Rapids Gold as an affiliate player.
Miami Heat (2021–2022) Edit On December 31, 2021, Stauskas signed a 10-day contract with the Miami Heat.[248
In the world of Economics, the terms “Market Value” and “Economic Value” often get confused and/or misused.
To put it short, “Market Value” is the price of an item in an efficient market, and it is determined by the supply and demand of that item. For example, if a man is selling T-Shirts for $30 outside of the Wells Fargo Center that say “Shooting Sucks” with Ben Simmons’ face photoshopped on both Beavis and Butthead, he would make a killing. If a passerby sees how much money this guy is making, and decides to jump in the T-Shirt game to make a quick buck, he would likely decide to print the same shirts and sell them for less. Let’s say $27. This puts the first seller in a predicament. Does he keep his price at $30 and hope people still buy from him? Probably not. Let’s say he moves his price to $25 to spite the guy that stole his idea. Long story short, both sellers would end up landing on a price that results in the most profit for them in the long run, based on how much the consumer is willing to spend, and how much competition is in the market. Whatever this number ends up at is called the “Market Value”. It is determined by the supply and demand of an item in a healthy market.
With that being said, the “Market Value” of a good can go up or down over time, but it does NOT change based on what a single customer is willing to pay for that item in their specific circumstance.
The “Economic Value” of a good is slightly different. The “Economic Value” of an item is how much an individual customer is willing to pay for a good based on the measurement of benefit derived from that item to an individual. The “Economic Value” of an item, in short, is the maximum price a customer would be willing to pay for an item. This value can obviously be different for each customer, unlike the “Market Value”. For example, let’s say there are two Philly Cheesesteak shops in the vicinity of the Wells Fargo Center. One is across from the stadium, and the other is 6 blocks away. Shop #1 has a special. They serve a $10 Philly Cheesesteak meal with fries and a large drink. The average customer rates it a 9/10 on Yelp. Shop #2 has also been known to serve a 9/10 rated Cheesesteak. They have a similar meal, but they charge $9 instead of $10. A potential customer that is craving a good Cheesesteak after leaving the stadium must decide whether paying the extra dollar is worth saving themselves from a 6 block walk in the dead of winter. Therefore, a different “Economic Value” can be assigned to the same item by different consumers, based on the perceived benefit that a person derives from that purchase. I’m sure there are better examples, but you get the idea.
Because of this, the “Economic Value” of an item can often be much higher than it’s “Market Value” (or in some cases, much lower). A consumer may be willing to pay higher than “Market Value” for an item depending on the benefits that they perceive to be gained from their purchase.
To summarize, the “Market Value” of an item is the price determined by the supply and demand of a good in a healthy market, and the “Economic Value” of an item is how much a single customer is willing to pay for that item, based on their perceived benefit of purchasing the good.
Now, I’m sure all 3 people that are still reading this are wondering what this has to do with Ben Simmons. The “Market Value” of Ben Simmons has been set. Daryl Morey is NOT the one who determines the “Market Value” of his asset. Neither are we on Reddit. Supply and demand set the “Market Value” of Ben Simmons, and in this case, it is the 29 other GMs that determine the demand for him. In the grand scheme of things, “a item is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, no more, no less”. The rest of the league has determined Ben Simmons value, and that doesn’t change at all based on how Daryl Morey feels.
What people are failing to understand is that just because Morey says he wants to get a superstar in return for Ben Simmons does not change his “Market Value”, it simply shows that he is hoping an individual team meets his asking price because the “Economic Value” of Ben Simmons to that specific team ends up much higher than the “Market Value” that has been assigned to him.
So why would a single team see Ben Simmons “Economic Value” as much higher than his “Market Value”? The best example of this would be if a team like the Celtics lost in the play-in round this year, and they decide to flip Jaylen Brown for Simmons, or something similar. They would be giving up more than Simmons is truly valued at in the market, because they perceive that the benefits of giving their roster a re-haul after a stagnant era of growth for the team (along with potentially appeasing an upset fanbase) are worth them personally raising their “Economic Value” of Simmons. This scenario would NOT mean that Ben Simmons’ “Market Value” has gone up. It would not justify the misconception that Daryl Morey is waiting until he gets “fair value” in return for Ben Simmons. This would simply mean that the “Economic Value” of Ben Simmons is higher to the Celtics than the “Market Value”. In this case, the Celtics are assuming that their personal benefit in a Jaylen Brown for Ben Simmons swap makes it logical for them to pay higher than his “Market Value”.
TLDR- I see a ton of arguments on this sub regarding how “valuable” Ben Simmons is, and how much he should be “worth” in a trade. The reality is that whatever Ben Simmons ends up being traded for is very likely NOT his “Market Value”, and I dislike the argument that Morey will sit on his hands until he gets what he thinks Simmons is “worth”. Ben Simmons’ “Market Value” has already been set, and clearly Daryl Morey is not willing to let Simmons go for his “Market Value” (AND THAT’S OKAY!). It is very possible that Morey gets the overpay that he so desperately seeks in the future, if a team is willing to apply an “Economic Value” to Ben Simmons that heavily exceeds his “Market Value”.
At the same time, it is hard to argue that Morey’s plan is anything more than a huge gamble. It’s possible that a team will get desperate and overpay in the offseason, but the notion that Morey gets to decide how valuable his asset is goes against all of the principles of a free market. The buyers determine how valuable a good is, not the seller. The “asking price” for Simmons set by the 76ers has nothing to do with his “Market Value”, and its asinine to think it would. If a store sells $20 pizzas and no one buys them, that doesn’t make the pizza worth $20. Is it possible that Morey gets lucky, and a team pays well over the “Market Value” for Ben Simmons in a state of panic this offseason? Sure, it’s very possible. But it’s also very possible that supply and demand have already set the fair market price for Ben Simmons, and everyone knows it besides Daryl Morey and the 76ers faithful.

2022.01.24 20:43 brooza11 Wolverine vs. Polarstar? Specifics
Posting this after I had a guy explain to me polarstar is better because... It's polarstar.
I hear you. P* is cool, (getting an F2 soon) and has a fantastic reputation. But I want to know how specs break down compared to wolverine engines, particularly the Gen 2 Inferno and the Gen 2 Reaper. I currently own an Infern Gen 2, and soon upgrading that to a reaper. So I'll soon be making my own judgements, but why the P* supremacy, in most airsoft culture? If it's feathering, wolverine engines can with their newest FCU or a gorilla. I believe ones got to be better than the other, or both excel in different ways, but the blanket phrase "they both preform comparably" is annoying.

2022.01.24 20:43 fpl1009 Don't Break NC, even if they message
Just some background info, I'm about 7-8 months into the breakup for a relationship that lasted 2 and a half years. It's been almost 4 months since I finally choose myself and decided to go "no contact". I put that in quotations since I guess I haven't really been doing it as strict as other people in this sub would say. What I did was refuse to contact her for any reason whatsoever, but if she contacted me, I would respond. This was after I told her I could no longer talk to her for my own healing. If I had to give a rate of how often she messaged me, it'd be around once a month.
But I'm writing this since I have finally accepted the finality of the breakup. The last conversation I had with her I finally got my "closure", even though it was what I already suspected and didn't really need it in order to move on. The good thing is I'm definitely healing, and am finally not having that panicking anxiety of not being in the relationship with her.
People on here always give the advice to ignore any messages your ex sends. In my head I was always kind of disregarded this. Initially, a large part of me was doing NC because I hoped that my absence from her life would cause her to miss our relationship. It felt like she would message any time I was starting to move forward with my life. When I was out enjoying the night with my friends, those rare moments where the pain of the breakup subsided. I'd always respond, not right away but for some reason I always thought, "This might be it, she might be messaging to apologize and say she wants to try again". And you know what? It was never was. Sometimes it's better to leave the past in the past.
If your ex messages during NC, don't message them back. You won't hear the words you're looking for. They've just cast their line to see if you'd bite, to see if their bait was still fresh. You don't need to give them any validation, you don't owe them anything. I know this advice will fall on deaf ears since people don't learn until they get hurt. But I hope if you do fall into that trap, that you recognize it earlier than I did and not let happen more than it should.

I'm sure this was posted before but I can't seem to find it. I received the link to do the video interview with Delta. It gave me options for specific days and times but not dates I was available. Was anyone else's survey like that? Should I reach out to them or be patient? I'm just nervous and don't want to miss out on this opportunity. My profile says "interview scheduling". Any advice or positive vibes would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

I must have missed something along the way, but I’ve now entered in the permit lottery three times and been unsuccessful. I could’ve sworn that I read that if you don’t get a permit, you’re refunded for unsuccessful lottery applications. But now I’m looking at recreation.gov again and I don’t see anything about that - do you really lose $10 every time you apply for the lottery and don’t get a permit?

2022.01.24 20:43 christiandiordiorpop Possibly not promoted at civilian job because I’m in the Guard
I have worked as a security officer in a casino for about 3 years and I just got passed up on supervisor promotion. They promote every so often when available.
Over the last year I was gone for 6 months due to OSUT and just recently completed AT.
I have not received a single piece of negative feedback at work and been given great reviews. The other couple of supervisors that have gotten hired have come to me for questions about the job and I feel like I am way more than qualified for the position.
Does USERRA cover this at all? I really don't want burn any bridges and create any sort of bad blood. Do I have reason to have a discussion with management ?

Do you all believe that the professions that were in demand 5 years ago are in abundance and some of the jobs are no more? If the world keeps progressing the same way, we would be jobless in about the same time we took to pass the degree If we did not keep learning new things or change career, we would hardly be able to survive (food and shelter)
