re: Delta Wave coming to and end in Louisiana: Rt value trending down 8/2 UPDATE - NOLATiger163
[b]Update versus yesterday, calculation versus projection?[/b] The stuff you posted yesterday or the day before from that website indicated that [ETA] Louisiana's Rt peaked at 1.88 a few days or maybe a week ago, and Rt was 1.80 that day or the day before, with some error bars (i.e., estimates of...

re: LSU Fee Bill - TOPS - NOLATiger163
Yeah the TOPS awards show up pretty late, maybe a week or two before the balance is due before the student gets dumped out of the classes. You can call the financial aid office and they may be able to tell you the date to expect it. ...

re: For this of you that got a Covid vaccine - how did you evaluate personal risk? - NOLATiger163
I'll tell you what I told my teenage son, because it sounds like the considerations may be similar: Having kept up with a lot of the stats, I think the risk that you will get covid and have it make you seriously sick or kill you is very low. I think the risk that you will get the Pfizer covid vac...

She was a good old lady / keeping it in the family - NOLATiger163
SIAP, but Tony Soprano's isn't the only kind of crime family. Here's today's daily double. First, as we've seen before, usually it's the grandmother saying her grandson, who the evidence indicates is a felon, "is a good boy." But here the grandmother got in on the crime: [quote][b]Grandmother ar...

re: Thoughts on age of consent - NOLATiger163
In the U.S. age 18 is the normal dividing line for adulthood (although there are certainly exceptions). Given the very serious repercussions that sex can bring--hello, having a child!--[i]in general[/i] there is no good reason for the age of consent to be less than 18. I see zero reason to make it g...

re: June 5, 1942: Midway, Part 1 - Clash of the Titans - NOLATiger163
[b]WRONG DATE[/b] The main action at the Battle of Midway occurred on June 4, not June 5. There's a big chart of June 4 plus a writeup at [link=(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Midway)]Wikipedia[/link]. Arguably the most decisive moment in all of World War II was from about 10:25 to 10...

re: How can I access The Advocate newspaper archives - NOLATiger163
Last I did this, maybe five years ago, I want to say that a one-day access with up to 75 articles cost $35 or so. It worked fine, and mostly I was able to find the stuff I was looking for. If you don't want to pay for digital access, then you can very probably get manual (microfilm, probably) access...

Recent Louisiana 'rona infection and death rate data - NOLATiger163
I know, I know, figures don't lie, but liars (especially the politically-motivated!) figure. But FWIW, I figure there are a few of you who are interested, so here's an updated and expanded take on the actual Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals data, such as it is. Basically, this provides a...

re: Any posters here ever ride on the Panama Limited? - NOLATiger163
Actually, the current Amtrak train between New Orleans and Chicago is the old Panama Limited, which Amtrak renamed the City of New Orleans to take advantage of the publicity from Arlo Guthrie's recording of Steve Goodman's song about it. But in terms of the actual schedule and consist, it's really m...
