  1. Here's the latest: https://www.sltrib.com/sports/utah-state-sports/2021/01/15/usu-president-noelle/
  2. If I remember correctly, the Baha'i believe in eternal marriage.
  3. This year was full of ups and downs for us. Starting with a February tornado which affected some of my students and friends, the pandemic and associated shutdown at work, a lot of significant increases with my work responsibilities, a devastating late spring freeze (lost 90% of my fruit production), serious health issues with my wife resulting in 3 weeks of hospitalization in July and August, several associated surgeries and procedures through the fall, and covid sickness in the family including one death. It sounds like a horrible year..... But wait, there's more! Our first gran
  4. Hey Pogi, Are you aware of any effects (negative or positive) of someone getting the vaccination while already positive for covid, or at least having had repeated exposure to the virus? My daughter-in-law is a nurse and received her first vaccination on Monday. My son (her husband) started feeling sick the same day and ended up testing positive for covid. Their infant daughter started running a fever yesterday as well. My DIL is the only one taking care of her as my son is in isolation. I read that the vaccine isn't fully effective until 10-14 days after the shot. Any ins
  5. I agree with you on going to the ER for serious issues rather than taking chances at home. But, it might be good to keep expectations low regarding visiting. A few months ago, my wife spent nearly a month in the hospital. We live a ways from town and don't have phone service here. I had to call 911 from the car once we got in cell phone range to have an ambulance meet us. Once my wife was taken away in the ambulance, I was completely out of the loop. It took me almost 6 hours to find out she was alive! A receptionist was only able to tell me she was in the ER and being seen to. That
  6. The team leadership was purportedly lobbying for Maille to get the job. I don't know who is on the team leadership council, but if it included LDS and Polynesian players, they might have suggested that he is a good fit for their program....ie. he understands the culture of the team. If she replied something to the effect of; we can't hire him simply because he's LDS, from Utah, or Polynesian, it might have been interpreted to mean those were the reasons he wasn't hired. That's a possibility. Especially considering the turmoil lately within the program (losing season, coaching turnover
  7. My understanding is that one of the players sent a poll out two days after the meeting. I would be interested in seeing what it said. The fact of the matter is that we're don't know what was said. I'm inclined to let the investigation run its course before making a judgement.
  8. From what I've seen, the only players were those on the leadership team. I'm not sure how many that is. I have not heard if any coaching staff being involved. It wouldn't make sense to include them in a meeting that the students requested in order to lobby for their interim coach to be hired. The only administrators mentioned have been the president and the AD. Not sure if there were others.
  9. From my experience with her, this seems out of character for Dr. Cockett. She's someone I've looked up to over the years, so this story comes as a shock. Of course, I support a full investigation into it. That many players alleging the same thing warrants it, in my opinion. I wish there was a recording.
  10. Didn't Moses create an aisle in the red sea? 😜
  11. ??? The same percentage of white evangelicals voted for Romney and GW Bush (78%). McCain got only 74% in 2008. Certainly, there were some who did not support him due to his religion. But, he ended up faring pretty well with that group.
  12. I know what you're getting at here..... But, despite the people on this thread describing him as an unapologetic atheist, he did not self-identify as an atheist. His position was that there was no compelling evidence that God does or does not exist.
  13. The Times and Seasons printed some of Chandler's original placards. Here's a snippet from it which states the mummies "may have lived in the days of Jacob, Moses, or David". https://www.josephsmithpapers.org/paper-summary/times-and-seasons-2-may-1842/8
  14. That's good to hear. I can only imagine the bond that has developed over 45 years (almost double the time I've been with with my wife) . I'm glad you're together again at home!
