Instead of having the Rooney rule for just head coaches have it used on position coaches/assistants. If you watch when a coach leaves to go to another team he usually takes a couple guys from the last staff to his new one. How come no one questions that? I am not saying this is or isn't the solution but it's just something to consider.

I dont think this rule should have been needed in the first place. Don't get me wrong, now that it's here, it may be a good thing but who knows for sure. What says that some GMs interview minority coaches and write them off even before they get in the door, just to say they abided to the Rooney Rule. If a coach is fit out for the job in terms of X's and O's and leadership and whatever other qualities a Gm is looking for then he should get the job regardless of his race. Unfortunately, it's not like that. The GMs and owners are more old school dating back to the segregation times and they may or may not still be prejudice. Without getting into politics, I think once a new generation of GMs and Owners sweep through the front offices, this rule wont even be needed.

The Rooney Rule just brings out the race issue more so than doing away with it. Should it be a rule? No. I think if the owner and GM are that devoted to winning, they will pick the best HC for their team despite race. I am very skeptical of any GMs/Owners being racists but there's always that small chance. I just thought working in such a diverse industry that race was a non factor. I must have thought wrong.

There was a thread on this: http://draftcountdown.com/forum/show...ht=Rooney+Rule

It was locked but take it for FWIW

12 + t - 8 = 0
t

It is really easy. I'm just not thinking straight right now.

(12/t) + t = 8
12 + (t^2) = 8t
(t^2) - 8t + 12 = 0
then solve
(t - 2) (t - 6) = 0
so t is 2 or 6

Lol ok yeah. Got that right before you posted this. Thanks.

One more?

10 + ----- 2n-5 = 2n+5
n^2-1 ----- n-1 -- n+1

I apologize. I'm sure this is easy as well. I know I have to get the LCD.

I assume this is meant to be (10/(n^2)-1) + ((2n-5)/(n-1)) = (2n + 5) / (n+1)

You need to rearrange n^2 - 1 to (n-1)(n+1), then multiply through the whole thing by (n - 1) and then (n + 1), once you have multiplied through you should have:

10 + (2n-5)(n+1) = (2n+5)(n-1)

multiply out the brackets and rearrange until you get an equation in the form a^2n + bn + c = 0, then solve.

It does. The rearrangement is what was throwing me off.

I have an English exercise which is an all or nothing grade. All I have to do is write 4 lines of dialogue between two people. I have to get it 100% correct in order to get the "E" grade(Excellent). So is this 100% perfect, and no comma, parentheses, periods, punctuation wrong? Thanks a ton. +Rep to whoever helps thanks. Here is the Dialogue:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Man, it’s really hot in here,” I said.

He grinned and said, “Wait ‘till you walk into the pressing room.”

“Oh really,”

“Yeah, really.” he said as he wiped the sweat off his brow.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Grammar is my worst subject, but 'Oh really' I think has a period due to it being purely dialogue.

And then yeah really should hae a comma, not a period.

It is my worse subject. So I may be wrong.

I probably seem pretty unintelligent in this thread. Oh well. I'm not (unintelligent that is).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Man, it’s really hot in here,” I said.

He grinned and said, “Wait ‘till you walk into the pressing room.”

“Oh really,”

“Yeah, really.” he said as he wiped the sweat off his brow.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is this perfect?
Instead of saying "Oh really", you have to put a ? after the really since it's a question.

No rep needed.

That's all I answered since the other two guys got it.

To be on the safe side give "He" a name. It might be too vague if you don't.

I agree, depending on what grade he is in clarification may be needed.
