Why YSK: Kids will try to get away with as much as they can and will constantly test the limits of your authority as a parent. If you provide too many warnings it turns the situation into a game for them where they may wait until you reach a breaking point and lose your cool before listening to you.
I'm a fairly new MMA fan. Paid ESPN+'s $7.00 monthly fee plus the $65 PPV fee for Khabib Gaethje and $65 for Valentina this weekend thinking they'd be one offs. Now I'm a bigger MMA fan and I want to see every PPV event. Set aside the "illegal" streams for a moment. I pay $15 a month to see all of Netflix's content, a great deal for me and judging by their market cap ($215 billion), for them.
Your telling me if I live in the states I have to pay UFC nearly $80 a month to see all of their content?? How is there not a more sensible structure, a subscription structure, that's sustainable for customers? It's like they're pushing me hard towards the "illegal" streams.. Especially during COVID when people can't gather together and pool their money to make it affordable
I'm fully prepared for you all to barrage me with a slew of logistical and rational reasons for why this won't happen, but I really think the league should partially adopt the format, at least on certain weekends. For those of you that aren't familiar with how high school games are usually structured, the ABC School girls and boys JV teams play first against XYZ School teams, and are followed by the two varsity games. For marketing and economical reasons, I think the NBA should consider adopting the format.
One ticket would get you arena access for the entire day. The NBA could structure it something like this...
1:00pm: Competitive local high school or AAU teams play against each other as the stadium doors open and fans are allowed to go to their seats. Corporate sponsor booths begin setup to cater to the fans/prospective clients. Kids play in the various attractions, some of which are partner-sponsored and others designed to increase interest in the game of basketball and the G-League/WNBA teams.
3:00pm: College Park Skyhawks vs Windy City Bulls. The NBA could allow players rehabbing injuries or fringe NBA players to play in both the G League and NBA games.
5:30pm: Atlanta Dream vs Chicago Sky. People like me who have never attended a WNBA game get to check it out. Good marketing for the WNBA and basketball in general.
8:00pm: Atlanta Hawks vs Chicago Bulls. We all know what happens here. Fans that are only there for the NBA game might arrive early enough to catch the end of the WNBA game and start to appreciate their local WNBA team.
Concession revenue would likely skyrocket. Interest in the WNBA would go up, as well as for the G-League and the game of basketball in general.
Edit: Many of you have pointed out some problems with the idea, the primary one being the lack of an overlapping schedule for the NBA and WNBA. I'll add bullets below addressing the various issues that you present that I consider reasonable obstacles.
I finally decided to rebuild my house and I'm starting to realize it was a huge mistake... I can't really build my house the way I want (and nothing I am doing is unreasonable or floating - my structure could very well be a building IRL) and it's small, simple things that ruin the whole build... I placed one darn staircase in the wrong place and an upper floor on top, and now I can't remove either and I think need to entirely demolish the structure to fix it... Building is at the top of my list of things I enjoy in Fallout, but it's so unbelievably difficult at times... Bethesda... pls fix... and Todd, I'm sorry to say this, but it does not "just work" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Edit: And why can I add things to the bottom of staircases but then not remove them? I've now made that mistake and things have just gotten worse. Plus, why can't walls go directly on the ground (i.e., greenhouse walls - a greenhouse on the natural ground makes sense).
This was the best sub I could think of to ask this question.
Putting aside which ideology is better or worse for whatever respective reasons, why was peaceful coexistence seemingly immediately off the table?
Why did Marx see capitalism as a threat? Is that why the US saw communism/socialism as a threat? Or were either the U.S. or the U.S.S.R. simply after “world domination?”
Sorry if this post doesn’t quite fit the sub. I don’t think it breaks any rules per se, but I understand it’s not really a “VS” question
About to graduate in April 2021, but I pretty much forgot most of the content I learned in the algorithms class I took in second year. So now I need to relearn the essentials of data structures and algorithms to be able to grind leetcode and perform during interviews.
A study route I read that was suggested is watch the Princeton coursea course on algorithms, read 'The algorithm design manual', work through the CTCI, then grind leetcode.
Is all that preparation necessary to grind leetcode. Any advice would be appreciated.
