The Data Examiner – (Notable) Remarks:

** The reality is that fighting makes the owners a lot of money via fan interest. Would they go for a ban on fighting if the players suggested it? Probably not. —- Ross Bernstein, “The Code: The Unwritten Rules of Fighting and Retaliation in the N.H.L.”

** We each have our own woke tipping point – the moment you realize that social justice is no longer what we thought it was, but has instead morphed into an ugly authoritarianism. For me that moment came in 2018, during an invited speaker talk, when the religious scholar Reza Aslan stated that “we need to write on a stone what can and cannot be discussed in colleges.” Students gave this a standing ovation. Having been born under dictatorship in Brazil, I was alarmed. —- Luana Maroja, Professor of Biology concerned about academic freedom

** Kevin Hassett, who says people should give out money rather than candy at Halloween, neglects the lessons learned after the candy has been gathered. Bartering with your friends and siblings for your preferred candy is the first buy-and-sell experience for many kids. It’s the basis of capitalism. Can I trade my gummy bears for SweeTarts and thereby use the SweeTarts to buy all my sister’s chocolate? —- Tim Hering

Parental Priorities For Children:

Americans of all races or ethnicities are far more likely to say “it’s extremely or very important” to them that their children be financially independent than that they have children of their own.

Below shows nine in 10 parents saying financial independence for their children is very important, and about one in four parents saying it’s very important their children have children of their own.

  • White – Be Financially Independent: 88% / Have Children: 16%
  • Black – Be Financially Independent: 89% / Have Children: 25%
  • Hispanic – Be Financially Independent: 88% / Have Children: 25%
  • Asian – Be Financially Independent: 88% / Have Children: 31%

Secret Chinese Operations

Federal officials arrested two New York residents for allegedly conspiring to act as agents of the Chinese government and operating an unauthorized police outpost in Manhattan under the direction of China’s Ministry of Public Security. The outpost is allegedly one of more than 100 Chinese police operations worldwide, according to court documents. The criminal charges are the first ever to be brought against such outposts. U.S. officials say the operation is part of China’s efforts to police dissidents living abroad. The arrests of Lu Jianwang, 61, and Chen Jinping, 59, come after FBI Director Christopher Wray told a Senate committee in November he was concerned about such operations on American soil. China denied the allegations, claiming the stations were service centers for nationals overseas.

The Not Milk Generation:

You may remember the ads from the ’90s and 2000s: celebrities such as David Beckham and Britney Spears sporting white mustaches above the words “Got Milk?” For many young people today, the answer to that question is: no. “Nobody drinks regular milk on purpose nowadays,” Masani Bailey, 30, told The Times. The dairy industry has started a new campaign to win over Gen Z, employing Olympic athletes and video game celebrities to hype the benefits of dairy. “We have to reclaim milk’s mojo,” one industry executive said.
