This Christmas will be so different for so many, and as I listened to Judy Garland's version of this song, I just burst into tears. At the time of production, the song was thought to be too somber and depressing for Christmas, but it was 1944. World War 2 was still raging, beloved family members were away fighting, rations were hard and strict, and everyone was tired and worried. But this song is also full of hope - the belief that all things pass, and that there will be better days ahead. The people of 1944 didn't know then what we know now, that the war would finish soon, and that the world would recover and heal. We don't know what 2021 will bring, but we can hope for the best.
Whatever your holiday season may look like, I wish you joy and peace.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yuletide gay
Next year all our troubles will be miles away
Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who were dear to us
Will be near to us once more
Someday soon we all will be together
If the fates allow
Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now
I have fine, dense straight hair that’s around 4.5 inches long that I style into a forward quiff. I’m running low on the newest bath of oasis (I love it) but I would like a little bit more hold. I’m trying to decide which one of these to get
Do you muddle the orange and cherry for an old fashion?
Dr. Yan and her co-authors just released their 3rd report refuting the the disinformation against them on their two previous reports.
This report was actually written in more layman terms unlike the first two, so anyone who reads this can really easily understand it.
Fred Hampton of the Black Panther Party:
>"We believe that the Weatherman action is anarchistic, opportunistic, individualistic. It's chauvinistic, it's Custeristic. And that's the bad part about it. It's Custeristic in that its leaders take people into situations where the people can be massacred--and they call that a revolution. It's nothing but child's play, it's folly. We think these people may be sincere but they're misguided. They're muddle heads and they're scatterbrains."

Make no mistake: Evan White's debut was awful. While it can be argued that 2020 can't be judged by the same standards as a regular 162-game season (which I'm inclined to agree with), it still looms over Evan White for the sole reason being that it is the closest thing to a long-term "professional" sample size we've seen from him that includes publicly available data relevant to the claims we've heard about him as a hitter.
Ever since he was drafted, Evan White was said to have a flat swing, yet had the potential for higher power more typical for first base if that swing was changed. In the second half of 2018, that approach to hitting the baseball was changed while in Hi-A, and it resulted in a more optimistic outlook for his future. It carried over to 2019, again resulting in a second-half offensive improvement despite playing half of his games in one of the most oppressive offensive environments in all of professional baseball.
In 2020, after signing the unprecedented contract in the offseason, he struggled to begin the season... but there was no noticeable improvement that occurred. There were tiny leaps, but nothing that flipped the switch to the on position. He ended the season with an abysmal .176/.252/.346 slash line and a horrendous 41.6 K%, despite playing fantastic defense and proving wrong those who doubted his power coming through at the major league level.
The question is, what now? Was Evan White simply unlucky? Was his approach wrong, with the lack of seasoning from Spring Training? Can it even be rectified? All important questions that will be answered soon.
Let's start with the basics here, how did Evan White's 2020 season compare to his peripherals in the minor leagues?
Apart from the K% skewing the stats like wOBA and wRC+, the only thing truly different between Evan White, minor league first baseman, and Evan White, major league first baseman is the BABIP. In fact, the walk rate is strikingly similar, which at least shows where that aspect of White's plate discipline is at.
Taking the k-rate into consideration to go along with the BABIP, there was no other player in baseball with similar peripherals - that being a similar BABIP with a k-rate above 40% - to Evan White. This is concerning, not because it places more scrutiny on White, but because it doesn't give an immed... keep reading on reddit ➡
Has anybody used either of these clays? I was wondering which one is more conditioning for the hair? Water based clays sometimes dry out my hair I'm trying to avoid that.thx
When it comes to snow covered lands such as [[Snow Covered Forest]] can it be used to pay for the mana cost of a non-snow permanent such as [[Essence Warden]] who has but a single forest mana cost? Or is it that because it’s a Snow Covered Forest it only produces Snow Forest Mana thus prohibiting the use of [[Snow Covered Forest]] to pay for [[Essence Warden]]?

Hi there! So, I feel like I should perhaps apologise ahead of time here- I'm a bit long-winded! But if people were able to stick with mere and able to help, I'd so appreciate it. Ok, so, as I said in the title, I'd really like to get a Fitbit, and I've never had one before. Or, at least, I definitely want some kind of fitness watch/tracker. But I'm having real trouble figuring out which kind to get, and whether it's worth it. I say worth it, because a friend lent me their old charge 2, just to try it out and establish how I'd get on wearing one (don't usually wear watches or bracelets etc.), and while I've found that I actually like and enjoy wearing one.... I've also found, to my dismay, that it's way less accurate than I was hoping.
It gives me steps for all kinds of situations where I'm not stepping, and in some cases, hardly moving my body at all. Things like unrolling toilet paper, being driven in a car (I wasn't even the one driving, so wasn't moving my hands or feet in that way), peeling potatoes, sitting petting my dog, and so many other small things. if it was just stuff like the potatoes, I'd get it- I was moving my arms fairly vigorously. But it wasn't, it was so many other small situations like it too, times where I certainly couldn't justify it. I know no watch is ever going to be 100% accurate. But... I was hoping to get one as accurate as possible. Thinking I've done way more steps than I've actually done, and can leave it at that for the day, isn't going to help me. And tracking loads of "activity" done per day that I haven't actually done- adding up to so much more per week- just isn't what I expected from a brand that's as well-known and respected as Fitbit for being among the best you can get.
Is this level of accuracy really the best I can hope for? Can anyone tell me? I was hoping it was just the fact that the one I tried is quite old was the problem, and that the accuracy would have been improved with newer models. But I've tried to do some googling and I've come across so many people who seem to say their Versas 2 and 3 and inspires etc are way off in their counts too, which dashed my hopes a bit! I've looked a little bit at the brands Garmin and Apple Watches, but only two Garmin ones really fit what I was looking for and one- the forerunner 35- didn't have a touchscreen and the other, the Venu sq, was apparently not great for swimming, which makes me wary, as I would be swimming with it. And Apple watches, to be honest, cost a... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey folks, after a few false starts I've been on the matte train for about a year and a half now. About a month ago, I finally killed my jar of early-batch Oasis and heard some dissenting opinions about the newer batches, so I decided to branch out and try R&M's matte clay.
I love how light it feels in my hair after everything sets up, but I feel like I can't quite get the control I was able to get with Oasis? I have coarse, wavy-curly hair and usually go for a messy quiff kind of deal, but R&M seems to loose its hold towards my ends and they start curling all over the place in a way Oasis never did. Has anyone experienced anything similar? It almost seems to do a more pronounced version of the same thing that using only HdF Claymation does in my hair - light enough, I can get really good separation, but hold near the very ends just doesn't seem to hold up.
The weirdest part is I just grabbed myself a jar of the newest batch of Oasis and I love it. It feels almost like anti-gravity paste (which I swear by as a prestyler) in the hands and seems to hold the same as earlier batches. Maybe R&M just isn't for people with hair like mine - I've told my partner I have a hunch it would do great in their hair, which is much straighter and finer than mine, and I'm sitting on my jar until we aren't 300 miles apart due to covid so I can prove my hunch.
Sorry if this isn't terribly substantive, just looking for reports from my fellow coarse-curly crew out there on how it's held up for them with different styles!
