    Avengers Campus - Reactions / Reviews

    I still have no idea what the Guardians tower and surroundings are trying to be. The new lamp-posts really put an exclamation point on how weird Art Deco influenced mission revival architecture translates to the fortress-warehouse-power plant aesthetic that we all know so well.

    Surprise! Red Tier Now Begins Sunday; Downtown Disney Restaurants???

    Since it needs to be said, if you are in a group that is at risk of severe covid-19 complications, do not eat indoors or at restaurants that are not operating in a clearly safe manner. Opening indoor dining is not a statement that it is safe to eat indoors, it is a consequence of the need to...

    If you're referring to my comments, I thought I would take a moment and clarify. The Fed's mandate is price stability, not zero inflation. We expect to see low and stable rates of change in the price level across the economy, broadly defined. This is what the Fed chairman is referring to in the...

    I do not know of reliable statistics on income specifically. However, as one would expect, black and hispanic Californians are less likely (by 2-5x) to be vaccinated as compared to both their share of the population and in terms of the proportion of cases and deaths.

    Not really. I don't say this because Newsom is (or isn't) on "my partisan team" but because it just isn't how state politics work. Among conservatives, Newsom is a deeply unpopular figure. But the problem is that unpopularity is largely limited to conservatives. A majority of Californians, even...

    Surprise! Red Tier Now Begins Sunday; Downtown Disney Restaurants???

    You should wear a mask in public because we do not know if the vaccines prevent transmission. It is is likely that they do, but we do not have clinical trials to answer that question yet. What the vaccine does do is protect you while wearing a mask protects others.

    No. What @Disney Irish was saying is that mRNA vaccines can be altered quickly to make booster shots that would protect against new variants. The modified boosters would encode for the changes to the spike protein seen in the variants.

    Stock Market Chatter

    Yeah, happy to talk more about that. Demand shock recessions are defined by a leftward shift in the demand curve while the supply curve remains fixed. We generally think of increases in the money supply as impacting demand, with the goal of shifting the demand curve back to equilibrium...

    Inflation isn't caused by there being an increased money supply without an increased amount of goods, it's caused by the lag in the supply of goods responding to the increase in the money supply. In a demand shock driven recession, we don't generically expect to see that sort of lag. Inflation...

    A Touch of Disney begins March 18, 2021

    I know this was said in jest, but I'm a bit surprised Disney's marketing went with the name for exactly this reason.

    Should Cars be Cancelled?

    I don't think asking people to act with respect and common decency will lead to a loss of identity. Rather, I expect the opposite. When people are respected, they're better able to express themselves and share their cultures and beliefs. I don't doubt that you didn't take it seriously, and no...

    What a predictable response. California's High Speed Rail project is bringing jobs and investment to the parts of the state that are most in need of it. And your response is to say that those people don't deserve it because the people impacted by it live in Bakersfield and Merced rather than...

    Yes, actually, we absolutely should. California High Speed Rail has already generated billions in local economic growth and created thousands of jobs.

    Of course it's Covid relief. It's relief for the economic devastation caused by a pandemic. When we engage in fiscal policy, we don't launch money into space or throw it in pits in the desert, we spend it on employing people and building things. Given that we both agree that this is a good thing...

    This isn't really how spending of this type works. The economic stimulus bills have had several independent goals. One is to provide emergency funding to meet healthcare costs and vaccine distribution expenses so that the pandemic can end. Ending the pandemic is the first, and absolutely...

    Infrastructure is one of the most effective forms of economic stimulus. Which has everything to do with a COVID induced economic recession.

    Rumor Toy Story friends makeover

    Not only that, all three trilogies have conceits that allow for this sort of thing, including the new trilogy that the land is based on. It's not that any excuse would have had to be invented, the work of explaining how you're meeting a "vision" of Darth Vader was already done multiple times.

    Does Disneyland need a Fantasyland, and would you be ok with getting rid of it if it meant more room for a major monorail expansion when they redo the Fantasyland area?

    Our experiences are similar, but I don't think it negates the reality that scientists need training in both how to teach in classrooms, and how to interact with the press and policymakers. There's nothing mysterious about a system that rewards grant writing and (sometimes) lab but not...
