Addiction 2021.4

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I am wondering if it's caused my posting from two different devices and/or maybe being logged on two different ways. I am currently the latter. Yesterday I posted using my laptop and my phone and experienced lplo at least twice.

Need to come up with a good test.

Good theory about effect/affect. I have few stylistic rules for papers from my lab. One is that "impact" may not be used as a verb.

Bobcats. The real ones. See one or two virtually every time I go there.

Bobcat/Coyote Encounter at River Legacy Park in Arlington, Texas – DFW Urban Wildlife

There are also cougars from time-to-time, but that's something different.

Corporate talk is unbelievable. I just cannot relate to people using words and phrases like nugget, gem, deep dive, synergy/synergize, empower, content, game changer, bandwidth, etc. and the worst of all - win-win.

How about Key Opinion Leader? Stakeholders? Granular?

No, at the end of the day, it's all about going home.

Heh. I literally used "win-win" less than 5 minutes ago. But in general, I despise most corporate speak.

We tend to use that one a lot, but to be fair, we're talking about liquid mixtures of chemicals, so....

We bring a certain synergy and bandwidth to the table with our solution so we both enjoy a win-win at the end of the day as long as you get your ducks in a row and don't move the goalpost.

WTF does that type of thing mean?
