Game Centre: Raptors’ win streak against Nets ends with ugly overtime loss | The Star
The game was far from an aesthetically pleasing affair, with enough poor shots missed badly to set the cause of professional basketball back a bit.

The Raptors began the fourth quarter missing nine of 11 shots but then went on a 9-0 run when the Nets starting throwing the ball away and running themselves into shot-clock problems repeatedly.

Toronto went to a small lineup to finish the game and provide some energy, with Pascal Siakam and Leonard in the frontcourt with Lowry, VanVleet and Danny Green.

Toronto gave up an astonishing 16 offensive rebounds to the Nets, failing to chase down long rebounds off missed three-pointers and repeatedly being outmuscled at the rim. The Raptors were out-rebounded 60-41 overall.

It was the only way Brooklyn was able to stay in the game and set up the dramatic finish. After a Leonard miss, the Nets had a chance to win in the final five seconds but Spencer Dinwiddie missed a shot at the rim.

Game Recap: Imbalance dooms Raptors, as they lose 106-105 to Nets in OT - Raptors HQ
Let’s start with the good news: Kawhi freaking Leonard. Though a 32-point (10-for-21), four-assist, four-steal evening doesn’t necessarily pop on paper, Leonard looked like an insane person trying to win this game for the Raptors in the second half. Playing primary ball defence on any Brooklyn player who threatened to get on a hot streak, Leonard appeared primed to win the game by himself.

His second-in-command? Jonas Valanciunas, who had the start against the lanky Jarrett Allen, proof Nick Nurse is maybe concerned with his team’s rebounding woes, or trying to observe a mismatch. While Valanciunas didn’t necessarily shore up the issues on the boards — Brooklyn out-rebounded Toronto 44-35 — he was great on offence. The big Lithuanian had 24 points to go with eight rebounds.

Outside of that, save 16 from Pascal Siakam, it was crickets from the Raptors. Kyle Lowry in particular will be a talking point coming out of this one. With his jumper bricking badly, Lowry looked caught between not wanting to shoot and heeding the words of his coach coming out of practice this week. Nurse wants his All-Star to shoot ten times per game — if they look as bad as they did tonight, though, that might not be the best idea. Lowry had just three points on 1-for-8 shooting (1-for-7 from downtown), adding five turnovers while getting 11 assists.

Nobody outside those I’ve already mentioned shot better than 50% for Toronto. OG Anunoby, Delon Wright, and Fred VanVleet were a combined 5-for-20 off the bench, as the Raptors struggled again to tread water during those minutes.

Toronto Raptors: Loss to Brooklyn Nets should be wakeup call
In what should have been a winnable game for the Toronto Raptors turned out to be a close one that came down to the final shot and the Brooklyn Nets played it perfectly.

With the ball in Kawhi Leonard’s hand, the Nets didn’t give him any space forcing him to pass it off to Kyle Lowry who gave to an open Fred VanVleet who had his shot bounce off as time expired. It was a big win for Brooklyn who ended an eight-game losing streak.

However, when you look at this game it was clear that the Raptors had more to do with the result than what the Nets did and this is something Nick Nurse will look to address. An obvious thing is an overreliance on Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry who have played well but recently, only one has shown they can shoulder the load.

Lowry hasn’t looked himself the past couple of games and only had three points in 36 minutes against the Nets. Simply put that’s not going to get the job done even though he continues to distribute the ball at a high rate.

Dinomania: Why We Love, Fear and Are Utterly Enchanted by Dinosaurs, Sax
"From Jurassic Park to Sue the T-Rex and Barney, our dino love affair is as real, as astonishing, and as incomprehensible as the gargantuan beasts themselves. At once reptilian and avian, dinosaurs enable us to imagine a world far beyond the usual boundaries of time, culture, and physiology. We envision them in diverse and contradictory ways, from purple friends to toothy terrors—reflecting, in part, our changing conceptions of ourselves. Not unlike humans today, dinosaurs seem at once powerful, almost godly, and helpless in the face of cosmic forces even more powerful than themselves.
"In Dinomania, Boria Sax, a leading authority on human-animal relations, tells the story of our unlikely romance with the titanic saurians, from the discovery of their enormous bones—relics of an ancient world—to the dinosaur theme parks of today. That discovery, around the start of the nineteenth century, was intimately tied to our growing awareness of geological time and the dawn of the industrial era. Dinosaurs’ vast size and power called to mind railroads, battleships, and factories, making them, paradoxically, emblems of modernity. But at the same time, their world was nature at its most pristine and unsullied, the perfect symbol of childhood innocence and wonder. Sax concludes that in our imaginations dinosaurs essentially are, and always have been, dragons; and as we enter a new era of environmental threats in which dinos provide us a way to confront indirectly the possibility of human extinction, their representation is again blending with the myth and legend from which it emerged at the start of the modern age."

Late shot, missed shots a recipe for a tough Raptors loss | The Star
The final flurry in the fourth quarter coincided with the most extended run of the season, as I recall, with Pascal Siakam as the centre of a smallish lineup.

With Lowry, VanVleet, Green, Leonard and Siakam, the Raptors were able to get the tempo up a bit and scramble the game, which is what it needed given their inability to make a shot most of the night.

It issue, of course, was rebounding, and boxing out. The three guards – Lowry, VanVleet, Green – aren’t exactly proficient on the boards, Leonard’s have a great year rebounding for him but Siakam gets pushed around under the glass just a little bit too much.

I’ve said from the start of the season that I thought rebounding would be a consistent trouble spot and it has been. I don’t think it’s by any stretch a season-killing issue – they are 21-6 don’t forget – but it’s something to keep an eye on.

Javanmardi: The Ethics and Practice of Persianate Perfection, Ridgeon
"Javanmardi is one of those Persian terms that is frequently mentions in discussions of Persian identity, and yet its precise meaning is difficult to comprehend. A number of equivalents have been offered, including chivalry and manliness, and while these terms are not incorrect, javanmardi transcends them. The concept encompasses character traits of generosity, selflessness, hospitality, bravery, courage, honesty, truthfulness and justice--and yet there are occasions when the exact opposite of these is required for one to be a javanmard. At times it would seem that being a javanmard is about knowing and doing the right thing, although this definition, too, falls short of the term's full meaning.
"The present collection is the product of a three-year project financed by the British Institute of Persian Studies on the theme of "Javanmardi in the Persianate world." The articles in this volume represent the sheer range, influence, and importance that the concept has had in creating and contributing to Persianate identities over the past one hundred and fifty years. The contributions are intentionally broad in scope. Rather than focus, for example, on medieval Sufi manifestations of javanmardi, both medieval and modern studies were encouraged, as were literary, artistic, archaeological, and sociological studies among others. The opening essays examine the concept’s origin in medieval history and legends throughout a geographical background that spans from modern Iran to Turkey, Armenia, and Bosnia, among both Muslim and Christian communities. Subsequent articles explore modern implications of javanmardi within such contexts as sportsmanship, political heroism, gender fluidity, cinematic representations, and the advent of digitalization."

On the Right to Have Nationality Rights: Statelessness, Citizenship and Human Rights | SpringerLink
>>> ARCHIVED http://archivecaslytosk.onion/zB9iu

Whereas the first view assigns discretionary power to the state, the second view ascribes it to the individual. What both views fail to recognize is that the normative point of the institution of state citizenship in an international order of plural self-ruling states is not simply to allocate persons to states on the basis of unilateral state choices or unilateral individual choices but on the basis of a reciprocal relationship between individuals and states.
To see this point, let us step back from the issue of citizenship deprivation for the moment to address a prior question: ‘what do we need state citizenship rules for?’ In a global political society organised as an international order of plural autonomous states, there are two basic functions that such rules are to play:

1. to ensure that each and every human being is a citizen of a state and hence that everyone has, at least formally, equal standing in a global society organised as a system of states;

2. to link persons to states in ways that best serve the common interest, that is, where this supports protection of the fundamental interests of individuals, the realization of the common good within states, and the conditions of cooperation between states.
