It is standard "diplospeak" to say you're not ruling anything out.  Most understand it means nothing in the real world.
yeah, ok. sure sounds like a direct threat and dire warning of "don't you dare". Who the f**k is the United States to threaten a sovereign nation 8,000+ miles away from the US and tell it what it can and cannot do?

Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison has warned the Solomon Islands that any attempt to allow a Chinese military base in the Solomon Islands would be a "red line" for Australia and the United States. Red line = a warning to said nation that there will be serious consequences if you don't do what we say.

Under Malzahn Auburn was notoriously inconsistent, but within that inconsistency the Tigers could every now and then hit another gear resulting in a Top 10 finish with coveted wins over rivals LSU, Alabama, and Georgia.

With recruiting down under Harsin, turnover within the assistant ranks, those three rivals established with proven coaches, and the rest of the conference as competitive as ever, my unwelcome outlook for Auburn is that they plateau to what Malzahn's frustrating Birmingham Bowl (2015) and Music City Bowl (2018) seasons were.

They'll somehow pin it on Harsin.  The boosters there are ruining their program, apparently.

Alabama and Georgia were not this dominant at the same time on the field and recruiting trail when Auburn was winning under Chizik and then Malzhan. 

When Chizik got to Auburn in '09, Alabama had really just started to take off under Saban. 'Bama are a completely different animal/machine now. And Georgia was a good program- but they were nowhere near what they've been are under Kirby.

And then when Malzhan got to Auburn in 2013, Bama was in full blown well-oiled juggernaut machine mode but Georgia was still not anywhere what they've been under Kirby. 

Fast forward to now and 'Bama is still the juggernaut of CFB and Georgia is right up there with them. These are the two schools Auburn has to recruit against the most. Probably no way for Auburn to be up when both these schools are #1 and #2 of the entire CFB kingdom.

Since 2006, Auburn beat UGA in 2010, 2013, and 2017 (and lost to them in the SEC CG).  Auburn 3-12 over that period not counting the CG.  They are a very inconsistent program, obviously, with a few really good years and a lot of meh.

Great album.
Rush frontman and bassist Geddy Lee appeared on The Strombo Show. In an interview hosted by George, Lee talked about the band’s early days and the sound they used.

Canadian-based rock band Rush was formed in the late 60s by Alex Lifeson. After a few lineup changes, the band released their 1974 self-titled album Rush. The band received positive feedback from the rock community and increased its popularity with the albums Fly by Night (1975), 2112 (1976), A Farewell to Kings (1977), and Hemispheres (1978) released in the 70s.

Rush, who reached fame with the hard rock genre in the 70s, made progressive rock in the 80s and proved to the world how talented they are in every sound. Reaching international fame with the 19 albums they released before disbanded, sold 25M copies in the U.S. and over 40M copies worldwide.

Anyway, in a brand new interview with George Strombo, Geddy Lee talked about the band’s early days and how they formed the “Rush” Brand. Lee admitted that their initial sound was harsh and likened to Led Zeppelin and Humble Pie.

Always have, always will. 

(I don’t think he was a super hire. Though I assumed his recruiting issues had a big booster factor)

We got Shot 4 yesterday.  I felt a bit tired all day, nothing else.  As we're cruising in May and flying transatlantic, I thought it could be worth it.  That's a 7 month interval after Shot 3.  Europe seems to be coming way down now, mostly, which is good timing for us.  Leaving out of Copenhagen, going two days earlier.

I'd like to see the business model for CNN+, it never made sense to me, the parts I thought I understood.
