A Disappointing Weekend That Went…NOWHERE…
The philosopher David Pears criticized Sartre's critique of Freud, describing it as complex but imprecisely formulated and open to potential objections. The philosopher Thomas Baldwin described Being and Nothingness as a work of pessimism. He wrote that Sartre's argument that Freud's theory of repression is internally flawed is based on a misunderstanding of Freud, and that Sartre's attempts to adapt Freud's ideas are of greater interest. The director Richard Eyre recalled that Being and Nothingness was popular among British students in the 1960s, but suggests that among them the work usually went unread.
A Disappointing Weekend that went…NOWHERE…
Even with the expectation that players this opening weekend would be far from mid-season form, there were still a number of surprises and disappointments. The normally dominant Steelers were embarrassed in a 35-7 loss to the Ravens, turning over the ball seven times, even though in past four years no game between the two was settled by more than four points. The Chiefs were destroyed at home, where last year they were 7-1, and the Colts seem to have finally lost their supremacy in the AFC South. For every disappointing loss there seemed to be an even more exciting victory. In the same match where the Chiefs lost 41-7, the Bills, who only won 4 games last season, found themselves looking at a surprisingly strong season opener from veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzgerald.
3. A year ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers were one drive away from winning their third Super Bowl under Mike Tomlin. In their first regular season game since that loss, they looked like a completely different team. Their normally shutdown defense, which allowed an average of only 80 yards rushing last year, allowed 180 rushing yards. The normally stellar offense committed 7 turnovers and, in a season that has already lost on AFC superpower, we might be looking at a disappointing season for another superpower.
The wind was starting to make squealing and screeching noises. We were silent for a couple minutes staring at the back window. I could see an outline of the trees whipping in the wind from the street light. Dad and I went inside and mom slept in the living room. For another 30 minutes the lights would flicker as we listened to Paul and Tom on the radio. I lay down on the floor and dad sat on his big tool box playing with the flashlight. Around 12:30 am, we lost power and he winds got louder. It sounded like a train one minute and a wolf howling the next second. The winds were probably between 70 and 80 by that time. My dad went out to get my mom but I remember my mom opening the door to look outside to get a peek. It was terrifying. In the sea of darkness the palm tree was bending back and forth violently. Water was falling from the roofs like Niagara Falls. The giant pine trees were bending at 45 degree angles with branches snapping off.
We were both scared out of wits and I cried but my mom reassured me that we made it and we are OK. By Sunday afternoon the power was restored and we started to learn about the true devastation Ike did to the state. I was thankful that we didn't lost our home or lives for that manner. Some areas along the coast were wrecked or wiped out from the storm surge. I remember the reporter on 13 trying to get a grip on his emotions as he went through the damage and ruins at Bolivar Peninsula. Watching the wreckage, it ran a chill down my spine but but it showed me the true power of these cyclones. Ike would cause me to take preparations more seriously and now I stock more supplies to prepare for every season. I know it's not much of a story but tropical cyclones are nothing to mess with. The story I will tell my kids one day!
I had never witnessed that level of destruction or devastation before. The eye of the storm hit around 10:30pm, so most of the guests (including myself) were sheltered in the hotel ballroom. What made this storm unique (and the reason it caught the Southern Baja Peninsula so off guard) was the fact that it rapidly intensified and changed course. It was originally forecast to head West and weaken as it went out to sea, but instead it made an almost 90 degree turn and headed directly for Cabo San Lucas as a Category 4. It was a Category 3 when it actually made landfall, but the millibars of pressure in the eye were extremely low for a Category 3, and the hurricane slowed and caused massive destruction.
I would like to respond to the comments posted from Ed T. He states that BB and Pioli have done a poor job staffing the team and that created the loss to Carolina. He cited the loss of Law, Andruzzi, and Bruschi. Apparently he does not remember that Law did not play for over 1/2 the season last year, including the playoffs. BB and Pioli picked up players such as Randall "Blue" Gay from nowhere and made him a starter. The secondary performed well last season, and with Harrison, Wilson, Samuel, Poole, Gay, etc returning should be fine. When the team lost Joe Andruzzi they drafted Logan Mankins with a 1st round pick, and again he seems to perform well so far. As a rookie he is still learning the system, but he should continue to improve. Bruschi was an unforeseen medical issue, and up until July was in question if he could play or not. Johnson retired suddenly due to medical issues, again unforeseen. The team signed Brown and Biesel as insurance, and both are still learning the system but have played well. Romeo is gone to Cleveland, and Mangini has been promoted. The D performed pretty well against Oakland, and against Carolina. Which of these players do you not respect, and how did BB/Pioli not respond to the issues? Should we have signed 1 F/A for 1/2 the salary cap? Get with the Pats program. The only potential staffing issue he can question is the loss of Charlie, but it will take time to truly evaluate that issue. Remember, defense jells before offense, and the O-line takes the most time to settle down and establish blocking and blitz pick up. The fact is the Pats played a lousy game against Carolina, and as much as I love this team they deserved the loss. I realize if this is posted it will be after Pittsburgh, and perhaps that game will change my views, but probably not as I expect this team to improve week by week into the playoffs. Have a little faith, after all 3 SB wins in 4 years give an indication that BB and Pioli know more about this team and winning that you do Ed.Paul G.
It is disappointing, therefore, to hear that, after the demise of Late Review, we are also to lose Saturday Review, to be replaced only by a weekend edition of Front Row. One sensed that something was wrong with Saturday Review when three esteemed critics were sent along to review the film Dirty Grandpa, which they universally panned, and the presenter, Tom Sutcliffe, asked his listeners whether they wanted the programme in future to cover these mainstream monstrosities, or stick to the art-house.
So, recap, the emotional symptoms of grief one may experience, shock and disbelief, sadness, guilt, anger, or fear. With the rise of COVID-19 cases and fatalities, the impact of abstract losses has also increased symptoms associated with anticipatory grief and survivor's guilt. Considering the restrictions designed to stop the spread of infection, most people just need to be heard and require nonverbal comforting that requires some kind of physical interaction that is difficult in a pandemic. Grief is being suppressed with nowhere to go. Anticipatory grief. Anticipatory grief occurs before death, is common among people who are facing the eventual death of a loved one, or their own death. Anticipatory grief is not often discussed. Some people find it socially unacceptable to express the deep pain they are experiencing and fail to receive the support they need.
On Current Team Injuries"The injuries are piling up and that's what happens when you're playing game after game. The good thing is that we've got guys that are going in there and doing a good job. Kenneth Olugbode hurt his leg. He hurt it in the first half and kept playing. Basically he got hit in the leg and it started swelling up. It had nowhere to go so they had to take him to the hospital and cut his leg and drain it. He'll be out four to six weeks. He's an excellent player for us but we're able to throw Ryan Severson whose played a lot of football for us. Now our two starting linebackers are down and out but we'll keep moving along. We had to move a few people on the offensive line when Sam [Kronshage] got dinged up a little bit but we had been preparing for that. We have Shane Callahan and we can move Stephane Nembot to the other side. We have John Lisella, so I feel good about these guys being able to play. You're right though. We play in the Pac-12 and we have a lot more games left. We're going to get banged up but we'll get some other guys back too. We'll get Patrick Carr back this week and hopefully we'll get a couple of other guys back as the week goes along. It's kind of a rotating deal. We are getting a little thin in some spots but the good thing is we're putting some guys in that I think can definitely play. Michael [Adkins] was out there running today. I'll get with the trainers again tomorrow. Hamstrings are a weird type of thing. It's not something you can gut through. We'd love to have him back but I don't know if we'll have him back this week or not.
On Small Mistakes That Could Have Changed The Course Of The Game"We made some big stops, we're right there, we're moving the ball and there's something unfortunate. We didn't pick up a blitz correctly or Sefo scrambles and we have the fumble. That gave them a short field and that was a huge turning point in the game. Then on the third down and two play. Honestly, if you take those two plays out and they go th
