Re: “Stewart, Safi and Trialist No. 16: RailHawks show veteran team and intriguing new faces in 4-1 stroll over NC State

Another great analysis David, thanks for the write-up. Interesting to hear about CPS still in the area.

Re: “RailHawks take out weekend loan for Minnesota trip

Honestly, I'm not a fan of loans like these. 1 or 2 game loans with goalkeepers make sense but a midfielder should be familiar with the system and teammates to be successful... I understand we're playing a lot of games but isn't that why we have such a deep roster?

Re: “The anchovies did it: Evoo illness explained

Wow jmb, I completely disagree with your evaluation of the emergency calls. There is a certain protocol that needs to be followed for emergency calls. you were not as calm as you present yourself to be. It is the operator's job to get information. I'm sure their system follows a certain protocol and it has to be entered a certain way. they obviously try to get name, contact and location information then move onto the problem. The more detailed the location the faster EMS can get there. That way they can get wheels rolling and assess along the way. Notice how in both calls the operators stated that help was on the way and that they would update the EMS en route? response is first dispatched and more info is passed onto them along the way. EMS is going to show up with the same equipment no matter what your problem so being "better prepared" is just incorrect. The operator was NOT rude and incompetent. she has to get the information and if you would have listened and answered the questions you were being asked she would not have had to interrupt you. Obviously, it is a high-stress situation but try to eliminate your personal attachment and look at it from an unbiased perspective. You were given ample time to describe the problem. I would assume that the number one call for EMS is chest pain so they have to rule that out first (judging by the line of questioning) secondly, who do you think you are? do you really think that it takes only a week to determine the cause of something like this? Would you rather believe a reporter or an investigator that determines cause based on scientific principles? I vote science. there is a certain protocol to follow after such incidents and you have to go through line by line to eliminate everything. and you obviously have little information on disease tracking in the United States. Logistically, it is a challenge. Even with our advances in information technology/sharing and bacteria/virus strain detection/identification more than half of all foodborne illnesses still go undetected. check out foodnet-a federal government program. These programs require money and time investment and people...and the only way to determine cause is with a sample. so go ahead and snap your fingers, wave your wand, and magically make these things happen.

Re: “RailHawks to continue feasting at the bottom of the table?

Championship teams beat the teams they're supposed to beat. Take Manchester United this year for example - they were 3-4-3 against the five teams under them in the table but they were 9-1-0 against the bottom five teams. It's all about taking the maximum points from teams that are clearly beneath you and doing just enough against the great teams. You have to credit the RailHawks for just not losing to these teams but taking all three points, and in our season so far, doing a lot of it on the road.
