  1. A good cover letter should do a number of things, but the primary thing it does is reference your resume/cv and the job requirements and happily marry the two. Coming out of university, you need to be able to point to specific metrics you accomplished as part of your degree program (probably leaning heavy on your student teaching experience). Hiring professionals want to see that you can do the job because you’ve already done the job mostly. Teaching band camps, summer music camps, any professional teaching experience (paid or not) can be used to highlight specific lines in your resume/cv which says “I’ve done this successfully in worse conditions”. Now, there may be job requirements expected that you haven’t yet had the chance to meet. A cover letter is a great way to expound on why your marginally relevant experiences (this may require some creative interpretation of your experiences) do meet the needs while acknowledging that moving forward you look forward to expanding your capacity in a more direct fashion in this position.

  2. Is hockey the best sport and we don't know it yet?

  3. Live hockey is probably my favorite sport to watch. On screen I like my CFB, easy to relax or react to the horrible officiating between plays, but live in person hockey is awesome.

  4. From Keanu Reeves to Jon Lovitz in one click

  5. Matt Walsh has "Theocratic Fascist" in his Twitter bio and I think that is the best description I've heard.

  6. On the one hand, fuck him for being a theocratic fascist. On the other, thanks for letting everyone know where you actually stand.

  7. Wait till I tell you how the 13th amendment that outlawed slavery has an exemption for those in prison.

  8. Amazon prison, coming soon to a red state near you!

  9. As a conservative, I left the GOP because I got death threats for this exact thing.

  10. We need a sane Conservative party in this country. We also need a strong liberal party that doesn’t instinctively bow to oligarch/corporate interests. I am a staunch liberal, but recognize that rule by compromise has many benefits (prevents corruption, provides counter arguments for unintended consequences of policy, helps unify the country if each side can accept perfect not being the enemy of good, etc).

  11. I mean… not a major but if he needs a job, just saying. I can think of a place that needs a competent coach.

  12. And hockey. Excited for the new arena.

  13. Damn, y’all getting a new arena? One of my biggest regrets is not getting a UofA hockey jersey when I taught there. Those were straight fire but as a poor lecturer class professor… out of my price range.

  14. Well not exactly over sir, uh- more to the side

  15. Am I the only one that thinks 97 was a perfectly split title? Nebraska actually dominated more IMO but Michigan was undefeated too so if anything, I’d say Nebraska was robbed of a unanimous title but it’s cool either way

  16. All I remember of that Nebraska team was there was no mystery in their playbook. They were going to run the option and you just had to stop it. Which was damn near impossible.

  17. There are different types of hard I think. For example, putting together something like Schwantners' "....And the mountains Rising" is a pain in the butt for the full group, but the individual parts might not be that hard. I've played some contemporary composer things that were just, like, "yeah, no that's not gonna' happen..." There's pieces that don't sound that hard, but are just insane to read, I think Schwantner wrote a piece that's in 8/32 or 8/64 or something like that... My college Wind Ensemble sight read it once for grins and giggles, it was ridiculous and I absolutely think Schwantner was just doing it to be a jerk and disguising it as an academic exercise. I've heard Frank Zappa wrote some wind ensemble pieces that were intended to be ridiculously difficult, but I've never played those.

  18. I’ve always thought that the most stressful part in any band or orchestra performance would be the wood block player in the Adams. I’d throw in Dionysiaques by Schmidt and possibly Dreadnought by Brooks. The Hindemith isn’t that bad (some tough miasma in the woodwinds in the first movement), and definitely agree on the Schwantner. Karel Husa’s Music for Prague is also a good challenge.

  19. They don’t have to know what every instrument is playing all the time. Arguably it can help them get a better interpretation of the specific sound they want to try to nonverbally communicate to the musicians though.

  20. Some conductors know more than others. One of my favorite performance memories was at an all state band rehearsal under Col. Arnold Gabriel, who memorizes pretty much all his scores. We’d of course heard about this and indeed, he didn’t have the music in front of him in rehearsal. One of the tenor saxes (ever being the smartass) raised his hand during a rehearsal stop and asked “Col. Gabriel, in measure 74 is that a G# or a G natural?” The good colonel looks up him and says “Son, I don’t know what piece you’re reading because in measure 74 you have…” and gave the exact notes and rhythms with articulation.

  21. Makes a lot of sense it gets tougher as the price goes up...

  22. I mean, it’s an efficient profit model if it also factored in time to climax. $5x1” per minute with a $20 minimum charge, for the more challenging clients you’d be making more (actual finances arbitrarily chosen).

  23. you are saying that it is cheaper in new jersey are you not? You also call NJ "tax-happy" but they have less tax than here...

  24. I mean…. It is cheaper in some stores in Jersey. There’s a chain (could be all over the state, idk) on the western border called Bourbon St. that has better prices than ye olde Fine Wines and Good Spirits. My regular whisky comes in about $3-8 cheaper across the border and it’s been more reliable in supply. I hear the arguments against though.

  25. I’m at a medium regional school and it’s very similar. Part of my gig is working with students usually their entire collegiate career, and I’d say I’ve met maybe 10% of the parents. I don’t mind - it’s part of the gig and I’m happy to schmooze a bit, but it’s much better than the issues you get as posted by OP. Pays probably better at flagship R1, but I’ll take what I can get.

  26. Probably Louisville or Temple for Memphis. ‘City’ School with strong basketball in a state that has a huge fan base state school (UK, PSU).

  27. Bojangles playing tall. Depending on alliances and trade might just do well. Take that one Pizza Hut province to the north and take advantage of their chicken superiority and a great port near their base.

  28. I made it clear when I was hired that I’d need a Mac computer of some sort. It’s the industry standard and several programs only work on the iOS platform. I probably could have done some work around on a PC, but I really didn’t want to learn other programs that don’t work as well as what I Already know how to use. Luckily the head of IT is somewhat familiar with how things are done in my field and gave me a pretty good MacBook Pro when I joined up four years ago and is still going strong.

  29. I mean... I haven't heard of a single good church in my life.

  30. I’ve worked for several churches. I’d call one good out of all of them. They fed the local ‘homeless’ daily and maintained basically a large apartment building across the street (hence why homeless in quotation marks). There were several very wealthy parishioners but they used the money for a lot of good causes. They raised a quarter million for clean wells in Africa one year and regularly did annual donation drives like that (that one just stuck out to me as the wells were like 10k each apparently and they raised enough for over 250 of them). Sure, they did those ‘charity’ vacations where they went places and did some community service in places like Costa Rica and Czech Republic and other less altruistic acts, but I think overall they did more good than bad. I even ran out of gas coming into work one evening and the pastor not only picked me up to come to work but also filled up my car with gas. Good people, and if every church was like them I’d probably believe their mythology. I certainly miss the community and the work.

  31. Apparently, a split doesn't require 10 days notice. Only 10 minutes.

  32. Requires filing with the SEC 10 days prior though. They could have filed a split for the 300M allowed shares, so like a 3/1 split, but if they want to do more with their new ceiling it’d have to be after the 8k form was filed today.

  33. Not even in the top 5 insider traders in the house lol. Gee I wonder why she's the only one that gets singled out?

  34. A hedge fund husband I think draws the ire. But there really should be more transparency and restrictions on congressional stock purchases.

  35. I love my account but I made it before knowing anything about Reddit and it’s easy to figure out who I am irl. Right now that’s pretty irrelevant, but when MOASS happens first thing that’s happening is I’m erasing this account - every comment, then profile. It’ll be the saddest part of the experience, and I look forward to making a new one when that happens, but that’s the reality of the situation.

  36. I just… don’t understand this communication. One of the most common chants in this sub is “No cell, no sell”. Do they really think that a random DM is going to make someone go “You know, despite all the thousands of pages of DD, despite the near prophetical outcomes we’re seeing as was predicted over a year ago, you know - you’re right. I’ll sell now on a Friday after market.”

  37. Shall…we…play…a…game, SomeDumbApe, are you talking about the financial terrorist Ken Griffin who lied under oath and threw a bedpost at his former wife? Kenny, the CEO of corrupt hedge fund Citadel, who conspires to drive companies to financial ruin for offshore money along with other power crazed elites like Jeff Yass and "trading-is-hard" Steve Cohen?
