    Psychology Today has a slightly different take https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/slightly-blighty/201601/does-obama-effect-increase-gun-ownership-and-shooting FTA: This potential mechanism is referred to as the “fear of gun control” theory, and this theory itself was strongly supported by the data analysed in this study. The author of the study, Emilio Depetris-Chauvin, points out that, despite the anti-gun-control lobby’s negative advertising; there was no clear rationale for believing that Obama's gun policies would be considerably more restrictive than those of Hillary Clinton or John McCain. Although Obama had consistently supported gun control measures in the past, he also repeatedly claimed to advocate upholding and respecting the “Second Amendment”. The fact that Obama did not have an especially stronger anti-gun record or campaign position relative to John McCain and Hillary Clinton – both of whom had been criticized by the NRA prior to then, begs the question, according to this study, as to why the particular likelihood of his being elected should induce such a specific surge in gun sales. But, this study argues, possibly Black candidates in US Elections may induce particularly intense apprehensions and fears among Whites. Can prejudice partially account for the unusual surge in gun sales? This research investigated the question by analysing racial attitude toward Blacks at the state level and information regarding the likelihood of Obama becoming president. The results suggest that Obama's election is statistically associated with a 24% increase in the demand for guns for a state with average levels of racial prejudice. But in states with higher levels of racial prejudice there is even more demand for guns, whenever it looked more likely that Obama was going to get elected. For instance Louisiana's racial prejudice level is measurably very significantly above Virginia's and appeared to contribute to an additional 12% increase in the demand for guns in Louisiana, when Obama was elected. This study concludes that racial sentiments may have played a role in the unusual increase of the demand for guns during the period of analysis. That increases in the demand for guns were larger in states with higher levels of racial prejudice, is interpreted by the author as evidence consistent, albeit inconclusive until further research is done, with racial sentiments underlying the ‘Obama Effect’.

    Part of my concern with ETS not catching it is that ETS made a big deal going after the girl in Florida claiming that had an increase in SAT score from the first time to second time that she took it, yet they seemed to have missed a 400-point jump from 1,020 to 1,420, which is 94-97% percentile, from 39-49% percentile. ETS didn't have a problem calling out the student, yet they somehow "missed" the 400-point jump? Here's the recent list of those who have been named: https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/complete-list-charged-college-admissions-211212373.html There are folks on here that reads like a who's who of "have everything" including William McGlashan, who is the founder and managing partner at private equity company TPG Growth. The list includes so many people who had all of the resources necessary to already provide their kids with more opportunities that any regular family could ever hope to have access to, yet it wasn't enough.

    Part of the equation is that some schools simply will not schedule Cathedral - which is not uncommon for top programs (Some schools don't schedule games against P/P schools at all. Others will not schedule games where they believe they'll not be competitive). It's not easy to find opponents, even for public schools with a reputation for being powerhouses, but especially a powerhouse P/P like Cathedral. Add in the fact that most of the teams that *would* schedule them have conference schedules and thus 6 or 7 weeks of games are already locked in, and it becomes difficult. I'm not sure Cathedral's globetrotting schedule has as much to do with its willingness to test itself as simply the ability to find games (and often, against opponents that are in a similar situation). Cathedral's schedule is further hampered by the fact that it has no home field, thus has to schedule its home games around someone else's schedule. Cathedral's schedule, as Rudy pointed out above, used to largely be made up of other P/Ps in the city and IPS schools. But now that most of the P/Ps the Irish used to play are in the Circle City conference and IPS has struggled as much of its population has moved to the townships and now to the first-ring suburbs outside of Marion County (and as those schools have grown, they have traditional opponents they often play and/or are locked into conference schedules), it's harder to find local games.

    Let's start with Carroll, then Homestead, then maybe Penn if you can get out of Sectional 3..........................Baby steps. Seriously, I hope you guys really can compete with Penn. However, you have along way to go to be put in the "Penn" category. Right now I would say Warsaw is Carroll caliber. And I only put them in Carroll's category because they had a decent 2018. Earn your way to Penn. If you can get out of sectional 3 by upending the favorite..........Homestead..........then I will be the first fan in the stands to watch Warsaw compete with Penn. Realistically, if you go to Penn's sectional, it could be one and done. I've always thought, under the right leadership, the Warsaw community could put a quality product on the football field. I'm thinking of the Phil Jenson led teams of 2000 and 2001. In 2000, they rolled their way to a 9-2 record, beating a very good Northwood team 29-28. Their only other blemishes were an overtime loss to Homestead and a second round loss to Penn (eventual state champs) 10-7. Then came 2001. The entire Warsaw community had Penn on their mind.............they wanted revenge. However, this time, they were assigned to Sectional 3...............SNIDER. They rolled through the regular season undefeated and waxing every opponent they faced, including Kokomo 62-0 in the opening round of the sectionals. When they took the field against Snider, I couldn't believe how big they were..........their offensive line was enormous............one of the biggest I've seen at the high school level. Right away, 14-0 Warsaw. Then Snider made a slow comeback. 14-14 in the 3rd. 20-14 Warsaw (missed extra point). Last minute drive, 20-20 (missed extra point). Overtime...............Snider 23-20. That was one of the best football games I've ever witnessed. Both Penn and Snider eventually lost to Valpo that year. Valpo eventually lost to Ben Davis. It is my hope that Bart Curtis can get Warsaw to that 2001 level again. Good luck to the Tigers, I really wish them success. We need more strong programs representing 6a north.

    If I'm a Warsaw fan, I'm wanting to go to Fort Wayne to compete with Homestead and Carroll rather than having to face Penn right away.

    First Kyle Long now Mack and Back up QB Daniels restructure deals to free up 11 million more in Cap space. Eddie Goldman as well restructured https://www.windycitygridiron.com/2019/3/12/18261533/chicago-bears-create-11-million-in-cap-space-khalil-mack-contract-restructure-free-agency I think that speaks volumes to the culture that Coach Nagy has created with Pace. Exciting times.

    A lot of discussion on it at the ICFA meeting, Friday morning and a proposal will be presented to the IHSAA. Until then we shouldnt muddy up the waters until the verbiage is all laid out. But will be beneficial if accepted.

    Wait a minute...I hear and read plenty of lefties calling the Trumpster "Hitler". I don't believe either side has strict control of applying the Nazi label to the other. What Obama signed and what he tried to get accomplished are 2 different things. His continued voice on his feelings of gun control had a big impact on increasing sales. You know as well as I do that when the next Dem administration is in office, what they will attempt to do and what will be the result in terms of gun sales. 2nd amendment is a big deal in this country. To be fair, some of the increase during Obama in the later stages occurred during the campaign in which Hillary was thought to be the next POTUS. She made it clear her intent, and people reacted. Perhaps Dems need to learn to manage their approach to this issue.......that will most likely have an impact on consumer behavior. Its all about the marketing and certain Dems have been incredible salespeople. Blaming this all on "crazy people" and none of this on the Dem approach just isn't credible Fox. https://www.npr.org/2017/03/31/522036660/democrats-are-good-for-gun-sales-guess-what-happened-after-trumps-election https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-guns-sales/u-s-gun-sales-down-6-1-percent-in-2018-extending-trump-slump-idUSKCN1PN346

    But it wouldn’t be fair to small businesses: http://reason.com/archives/2019/03/12/illinois-governor-proposes-a-fair-tax Good luck with that. I feel sorry for the common citizens of Illinois, and that includes several relatives of mine. But then again you would think they would be able to vote these shysters out of office, but it hasn't happened.

    I commend them for scheduling tough. No reason not to test yourself under current Indiana rules, which for really good teams, render the regular season meaningless. Exactly why Indiana needs a rule change to at least include seeding but should also not have everyone making the playoffs.

    A Professor Spoke the Truth, He Still Pays the Price: https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/03/professor-samuel-abrams-spoke-the-truth-he-still-pays-the-price/ Crazed student demands are not new on American campuses. Outrageous mischaracterizations of opposing views are par for the course (really, read Abrams’s essay and see if he’s guilty of any of the charges against him). Yet matters get more alarming when professors and presidents take radicals seriously. Reportedly, the president of the college has already met twice with the protesters, and 25 professors have signed a petition declaring they “stand in solidarity with the student activism happening this week.” Years ago, when I’d speak about the larger dangers of the campus culture wars, I’d often hear adults dismiss my concerns by confidently stating that these students would “grow up” when they encountered the harsh and unforgiving “real world.” Well, campus radicals have encountered the “real world,” and they’re remaking it in their own oppressive image. The call-out culture has migrated from campus to corporations, and now everyday Americans live in fear that their words — even words uttered in good faith and with great respect — can cost them their livelihoods. And on campus, dissenters from campus orthodoxy often need not just tenure but a rare kind of personal fortitude, including the ability to withstand repeated calls for their termination, repeated disruptions of their work, and sometimes even outright slander. Publishing truthful information about ideological imbalances threatens no one’s “safety.” Questioning the priorities of progressive administrators endangers no one’s “wellbeing.” Colleges should not “protect” anyone from New York Times essays. And the fact that even a syllable of this nonsense is taken seriously by professional academics indicates that our culture of free speech is already in decline. I've read Mr. Abram's essay at the NYT, and don't see where he is guilty of any of the charges the Sarah Lawrences Snowflakes accuse him of.

    Elizabeth Warren Wants to Make Your Life More Annoying and More Expensive: http://reason.com/blog/2019/03/12/elizabeth-warren-tech-antitrust-amazon You bet it is closer to the truth. It also sounds that under this regulation giant retailers like Wal-Mart and Target, both who sell their "house brand" items online as well as in their brick-and-mortar stores, would have to stop selling those house brands or spin them off. Either would mean higher prices for consumers.

    interesting article.....some I can see...some of the conclusions are interesting to say the least. Bottom line, people bought guns because they were worried about their freedoms...and they felt additional gun control on the horizon. Obama discussed gun control repeatedly and Clinton ran her campaign with this issue front and center. Their actions did drive consumer behavior, and it wasn't just because he was black. C'mon. I had to laugh at that one. Hillary would have continued the trend of escalating gun sales had she been elected. Much is out there to support this. A summary of Obama's public push for additional gun control https://www.politico.com/gallery/2015/08/its-got-to-stop-15-times-obama-has-pushed-for-stronger-gun-control-002064?slide=0 Gun industry claimed sales increased by 158% during his tenure https://www.forbes.com/sites/frankminiter/2016/04/12/the-gun-industry-says-it-has-grown-158-since-obama-took-office/#6f4aeb357f4e So much data is out there to show the spike in sales during BO's time....you can try to state there is zero correlation, but we know this...gun sales declined significantly after Trump became president. Why? I guess we will have to wait for the study to identify him as Satan, and that his followers don't need guns to do their damage...... Owners of some gun shops saw sales leap in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election, when polls indicated that Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, would likely defeat Trump and win the White House. December 2015, during Obama’s second term, was the single-highest month for background checks in history, with about 3.3 million conducted. Under Obama, two styles of firearms dominated sales, said Brian G. Rafn, director of research for Wisconsin-based Morgan Dempsey, an institutional investment firm. The first were the AR-style rifles, including the AR-15, and the second are smaller "personal protection" handguns perfect for everyday carrying, especially by women, he said. Rafn said because firearms are durable goods, the number of them in circulation grows by about 5% annually. American firearms manufacturers made about 11.5 million pistols, revolvers, shotguns and rifles in 2016, the latest year for which data is available, according to federal officials. That's twice as many as were made in 2009, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Rafn said he's unsurprised by the slowdown in firearms sales given Trump's lack of rhetoric about seizure or confiscation, and noted that deep discounts over the past year likely hurt manufacturers more than the relatively small slowdown in sales. He said 2017 brought discounts of up to 40%, while discounts this year are closer to 20%, a sign of improving sales. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2018/03/27/gun-sales-face-uncertain-future-thanks-president-trumps-support-industry/459862002/ Perhaps he's not solely accountable for the increase in gun sales...but its way more than a coincidence, and its not just due to prejudice. Had Hillary been elected, there wouldn't have been the decline in gun sales experienced while Trump has been in office. I guess we shall just see when the next Dem is leading the country, assuming they continue the push for additional gun control.
