It's an important insight -- and one about which I'll have more to say in the near future -- but it's not the most troubling one which one can take away from the book. In fact, it isn't that hard to measure the performance of first basemen. Oh, I don't mean to imply that sabermetrics the study of baseball is as well understood as physics or as well documented as chemistry, but the field is no longer in its primitive stages, either, and there are well-established theories and methods. The real problem with baseball isn't the difficulty of measurement, but the difficulty of overcoming entrenched interests who are threatened by new ideas.
Why beef-lovers are completely wrong? By - March 4, The recent ban on beef in Maharashtra has caused a huge uproar on social media. This ban is being hailed as a direct attack on their personal freedom. The argument is as follows: Who is any government or moral police to dictate what I eat or do not eat?
Will they ban spinach and lauki also tomorrow if I am offended? This is communal politics of right-winged Hindu fanatics and must be opposed. But let us scratch the surface and explore how valid is this movement against Beef Ban. The ban on cow slaughter and most cattle is already existing in majority of states of India.
Were these beef lovers sleeping like Rip Van Winkle for last 68 years? What were Jumping to conclusions is wrong eating so far?
Were they indulging in illegal activities? Why they did not show their beef love so far? Why they could not raise a movement against beef-ban in last near-seven decades?
No one has any problem with what you eat and what you do not. You are free to eat even from the commode in democracy. But the ban is not on eating. It is on killing of cattle.
Now people like me have several objections to killing of cow and cattle in general. If you can create beef in laboratory without killing my mother, I have absolutely no issues with you.
But if you want to kill my mother in name of democracy, then better explore that democracy in Somalia or ISIS zones.
Your freedom to swing your arm ends where my nose begins. Yes, it is true that for overwhelming majority of India, cow has sentimental values. They consider cow as mother.
Their most popular God — Lord Krishna — is known as Gopal for his love for cows. On every occasion — birth, death, festival, happiness, sorrow — feeding and worshipping cow is considered a primary duty. There are multiple festivals dedicated primarily to cow.
And this respect is extended to cattle in general. Bull is considered as companion of another revered God — Lord Shankar. It does not matter whether you agree with this cow worship or not. But so far majority of Indians consider cow as mother, killing of cows cannot be acceptable.
Say I name an animal on your mother and slaughter it.
I desecrate a temple, mosque or church. Will you encourage this kind of behavior? If yes, I will call you pervert. But that is besides the point. First dare to perform such acts as above, post videos of same on youtube, put your address in description and raise a movement to allow you such crazy behavior in name of democracy.
If no, then slaughter of revered mother cow and associated cattle cannot be accepted in a country where cow is foundation of religious and cultural ethos of majority.
Hence ban on beef shows double standards. If above is indeed the case, tell me instead, what you propose to do to help solve this problem.Mergers: What Can Go Wrong and How to Prevent It [Patrick A.
