HM: Campbell

I won't even make an attempt on how to give that line a nickname.

The DOA line? (David, Ondrej & Alex?)

1 for the good guys. Let's go!

You love to see it!  :D

As always, with all the love in the world for Mr. T (and more recently, 50 Mission Cap):

HM: Engvall

Great games from Nylander, Bunting, and Muzz and Holl were awesome on the 5-on-3.

Futurama all the way.

That's not fair, why does Montreal's second line get 4 players?  :P

Hi all. I have a 12 year old nephew who's taking guitar lessons. I'm doing my Xmas shopping early and want to get him something economical for tuning. He's just using an acoustic guitar for now.

Do you know if something like this digital tuner would work?
(browse incognito or you'll get spammed with Aliexpress ads until the end of time)

Do you have something else I could consider? (economical) I should add: I know nothing of instruments.

For an acoustic guitar, Snark tuners I think are the best bang for the buck:

If it's an electric acoustic, maybe consider the Boss chromatic tuner (I still use a TU-2 to this day onstage), but for an acoustic only, the snark is great!

That's for all people, including those who are ineligble for the shot (i.e: children under 12)

If you hit the button that says "eligible" near the top, it'll show you the percentage of everyone 12+ who has received the shot! (85% and 79%, respectively!)

So I don't want to get into anything partisan here or engage in electioneering but I have to say I'm fairly frustrated right now. I've had my ballot to vote by mail for a week now and for the first time in my life I'm really not sure who to vote for or if I'll be voting at all. For every other election it's been easy for me. Because I'm not a member of any party I read platforms, decide which one fits my particular views to best(which, to date, has always been the NDP) and vote for them.

But this year I'm struggling with it. I'm still most on board with the NDP platform but I really dislike the way Singh has campaigned and, just personally, I have a tough time voting for a party that's finding anti-semitic candidates left and right. Throw in the fact that I live in a iron-clad safe LPC riding so even in the best of years I'm voting for a no-hope candidate which makes holding my nose and voting NDP again seem almost comically useless.

I'd never vote for a right wing party, which to my mind includes both parties with realistic chances of forming government, I actively dislike the Greens and the only other choice in my riding are the Communists and I don't think I'm quite at that stage in my intellectual devolution.

I don't know...I think I may just write in Tommy Douglas.

I was in the exact same boat - Nearly lifelong NDP voter, but Singh absolutely *bombed* at the debates.  Even though my riding (Davenport) is a "contested" riding between Liberals and NDP, I ended up voting for the Green.  I liked the local candidate a lot, and although Annamie Paul started off the debate slow, she really won me over by the end.

Someone asked the question in the meeting and it wasn't really answered, but they're basically asking front of house people to also become bouncers, which I can't imagine is going to work out well.

I hope they're all getting pay raises to deal with what they're inevitably going to face.

Arizona is apparently shopping Christian Dvorak, who is making a reasonable $4.45 mil.  I wonder if the cost to acquire him would be even more than a 1st and a 3rd, though?

But is 24-48 hrs even good enough? Couldn’t you have caught it on the way to the venue and not know yet? A lot can happen in a day or 2.

I would think only rapid tests would be worthwhile in those scenarios.

My understanding is while the Delta variant does have a quicker incubation period than COVID classic, it's still minimum 2-3 days before someone can pass the viral load.  24-48 hours *should* be fine.

Does anyone if you can get help for ADHD without extended coverage. My psychiatrist keeps telling me it’s unnecessary to speak to someone else who specializes in ADHD and he just keeps prescribing me Adderal and a different depression med every 6 or 8 months. But no help on actually overcoming or controlling the ADHD. He keeps
Saying your productive enough let’s focus on the depression. I feel trapped.

Have you asked to be referred to a therapist? My good friend sees a therapist every month and it's been helpful. She has other issues as well (complex PTSD), so maybe that's why?

My friend who has pretty severe ADHD, highly recommends the ADHD Rewired course and group coaching. It's $1500 though. She says the support and understanding from the community is the best part (which is free I believe). Also highly recommends reading "The One Thing" which is actually required reading for the course.

I saw a therapist for a year and have been discharged. Now trying to get back in is almost impossible. You essentially have to claim you're suicidal to get in.

I have to echo BF - literally as I just finished my appointment with my therapist 10 minutes ago (for minor stuff - a lot dealing with self confidence and vulnerability/lack thereof), but I always feel good coming out of a session.  You know what you need best, so even if your psychiatrist doesn't think it's necessary, if you want to try it out then I think it's still definitely worth trying out.  The lack of public options is not great here in Ontario, but like herman said - most benefit packages will include stuff for Psychotherapy and or a Master of Social Work, and mine in particular didn't even need a referral from a doctor.  Definitely worth looking into and recommended!
