The terrorists in Barcelona momentarily moved Trump’s Nazi-supporting outrage to the number two position on many people’s list of concerns. Trump was ready for that. On Friday morning, in three simple tweets, Trump laid out a road map to the security state of his authoritarian dreams. First, you need a force that’s ready to protect America without worrying about busting a few innocent heads, conducting a little mass murder, and protect America from brown people. “Homeland Security and law enforcement are on alert & closely watching for any sign of trouble. Our borders are far tougher than ever before!” Though it would be easier if it wasn’t for insidious lefties who care about things like rights and laws. “The Obstructionist Democrats make Security for our country very difficult. They use the courts and associated delay at all times. Must stop!” But safety can be had with a few simple steps … like giving up things you’ll never miss. Radical Islamic Terrorism must be stopped by whatever means necessary! The courts must give us back our protective rights. Have to be tough! Our “protective rights”? This seems to be the next-level perversion of all the times a Republican has stated that the first duty of the president is to keep citizens safe—a statement that always shows they didn’t pay too much attention during the oath of office. Trump is creating “rights” that are defined in the sense of things taken away. As in “we can keep you safe … if you’ll give up those pesky concerns about free speech and unlawful search.” And of course, a little torture wouldn’t hurt.

Avian flu can be transmitted from birds to humans; transmission among humans, however, is limited. The reason may be an eggshell-like mineral layer that the virus acquires due to the high calcium concentration in the intestines of birds. These mineralized viruses are significantly more infectious and, in addition, more robust and heat stable than the native viruses.

The Los Angeles Rams made a huge investment in quarterback Jared Goff last season, trading up to pick him with the first overall pick in the draft. A year in, they have yet to see the returns.Goff played just seven games last season. Case Keenum started 2016 as the starting quarterback. Goff and now ex-head coach Jeff Fisher should be under equal indictment for that. Keenum played horribly, but so did Goff once he got the chance.Thirty-four quarterbacks threw enough passes to qualify for DYAR and DVOA rankings, and Jared Goff was dead last in both by huge margins (-881 DYAR and a -74.8 percent DVOA). Brock Osweiler, who ranked 33rd in both categories, had -558 DYAR and -26.8 percent DVOA. In other words, Goff was so bad that his numbers seem like a typo. He consistently missed easy throws, didn’t seem to know what to do with his feet and was just all-around bad in every way.Faced with the possibility that they had gone all-in and landed a bust, the Rams decided that Goff’s supporting cast was actually the

This regime isn’t about the future, it’s about which players they feel give them the best chance to win in Houston on Sept. 10. They’ll take Check-down Chad over a quarterback whose confidence looks shattered.Bortles completed 8 of 13 passes for just 65 yards in the preseason game, and his stat line
