The kickoff TD really ended it as Servite scored with what 9 seconds left? other than that MV didn't impress me that they are at the same level as MD and Bosco.

They do get the game at home, but the way the Servite "passing attack" ( ONE KID #4 ) torched the MV secondary, I just don't see MV making enough plays against MD's 4 wideouts and Bryce Young, the kid at Servite (just a sophomore) is outstanding, but he's no BY!

Against Amat MD always had someone open, it that happens at MV it will be a long night.

I heard that MV'S Defense was air tight, BUT giving up 35 to Servite??? but that's why you play the game!!!

Amazing how MV has now gotten 3 consecutive coin flips to get the home field against MD!!!

Read this tidbit...seems someone's getting a little nervous:

"President Trump is tweeting more than ever. The second week of October was his busiest, with 271 tweets."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that almost 40 tweets a day? Those are 'somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds' kind of numbers...doesn't this guy have a friggin' job?

Looking forward to seeing the Repub questioners twist and shout as they try to deflect, deny and dismiss...

Servite @ 7-3 has made a comeback to the So Cal football scene.
Playing Bosco to a very close game in the Trinity and placing 3rd in that league is solid!
This game will not be a gimme for MV. If MV wants to have shot at the top 3, they will need to handle Swervite like MD did , and leave no doubts!!

La Habra vs Edison
A d-3 matchup, LH is 9-2, at home taking on 8-3 Chargers.
La Habra has been blowing by teams of late and looks to get a solid challenge this week , vs 2nd place sunset
team. The LH D has been forcing turnovers, and putting the offense in good spots, to put up points.
If the Offense really gets on track, and gets more balance, they will be very tough.
Edison , has been doing just that, as they have been running and throwing the ball well, and have been riding high for the last several weeks.
All four of these teams are not strangers to each other, and have played one another , over the last few years or so. Solid Orange County matchups , this week. But, someone will need to go home. What 2 will prevail????

(snip)

The episode has gained major attention in the U.S. largely because the LeBaróns are part of a long-standing American Mormon presence in northern Mexico. (George Romney, the late Michigan governor and Mitt’s father, was born in a Mormon colony in Chihuahua in 1907, which he was forced to flee as a child during the Mexican Revolution.) But the reason the killings really matter is that they are yet another reminder that Mexico is on a fast track toward becoming a failed state.

For this, blame a combination of managerial incompetence and ideological inanity from Donald Trump and his Mexican counterpart, Andres Manuel López Obrador. In 2015, I asked then-candidate Trump whether he feared that his protectionist policies would hurt Mexico in ways that ultimately would hurt the United States as well. His reply: “I don’t care about Mexico, honestly. I really don’t care about Mexico.”

Since then, Trump has forced a dubious renegotiation of NAFTA but has yet to get the new trade agreement ratified in Congress, causing business uncertainties that have brought the Mexican economy to the edge of recession. It took the administration more than a year to replace its ambassador in Mexico, after the last one resigned in disgust. And Trump’s insistence that Mexico militarize its southern border with Guatemala has drained its army of the manpower it needs to fight the drug cartels.

If Trump’s actions have been damaging, López Obrador’s have been disastrous.

His slogan in the face of cartel violence is “hugs, not bullets.” His strategy has been to increase spending on social programs while urging gangsters to think of their mothers. He has claimed, preposterously, that crime is under control and still insists he has no intention of rethinking his approach. In the Culiacán fiasco, he praised the decision to release El Chapo’s son while ordering the disclosure of the officer’s name who had ordered the operation, endangering the man’s life. Much of the army officer corps now openly reviles their commander in chief. A parody of a policy has produced a predictable result: 2019 is on course to become Mexico’s most violent year in decades, with about 17,000 killings between January and June. In sheer numbers, that’s a figure that exceeds the civilian death toll in Iraq at the height of war in 2006.

(snip)

“When Mexican presidents have looked at this, it’s such a daunting task,” the former official notes. “It’s very manpower intensive, and it’s not just security forces to clear, hold, and build. They have to be supported by strong judicial authorities, which in turn have to be supported by strong prison authorities. Those are the three legs of the rule-of-law stool, and if any of them are weak, it can cause the whole enterprise to topple.” In Mexico, all the legs of the stool are cracked. Prisons are out of control. Municipal authorities cower before the cartels. The “impunity rate” — that is, the likelihood that crimes will not be punished — is just shy of 99%.

This is not business as usual for Mexico. Either the country is going to get a grip on its crisis of institutions and its deficits in leadership or it is going to increasingly resemble Iraq before the surge, albeit with drug money taking the place of religious fanaticism. Donald Trump might not care about Mexico, but you should. Even if we build a wall, no crisis will ever respect a border.

Mater Dei #24 was a hell of a RB, and his mother and/or maybe his sister was a prolific poster here, under the name of Slowyoroll.

If this Servite fanatic can contribute, so can all you Monarchs. No one should have to bury their child. RIP Corbin. You were good, kid.

Search engines such as Alphabet Inc. ’s Google unit use a variety of measures to filter results for individual searches, such as the user’s browsing activity, search history and geographical location.

Critics have increasingly complained about algorithms enabling online-search and social-media companies to determine the content users see, with some on the right claiming the result is a form of censorship because certain views may be excluded. The big internet firms generally have denied such claims and contend that using profile information gives users better-tailored results.

The proposed Filter Bubble Transparency Act would require big online search engines and platforms to disclose that they are using algorithms to sort the information that users are requesting or are being encouraged to view.

The bill would also require the online search engines or platforms to offer a relatively unfiltered version of the same information if users ask for it.

And what is the formula for successive rounds? Let’s say 2 home teams won in the first round (or even two away teams) and they then face each other in the second round, how do they decide who is the home team? A coin flip?

And what if there is a difference (a team wins at home and plays a team that won on the road), is it still the team who hasn’t had as many home games get to host?

Would love to see a definitive explanation. Curious if both CdM and La Habra get to the semis who would likely have a home game.
