My brother has also turned his life around, alcoholic, drug addict, a nobody who specialised in disappearing when the debts got too high. He stopped everything, without help (he had tried lots of programs previously to no avail) after waking up one morning in his thirties with the realisation that he had NOTHING but the clothes on his back. He now (15 years down the track) owns his own home outright, has a job, PAID BACK ALL THE MONEY HE OWED PEOPLE, going back 20 years in some cases..
Support and services only work when people make a choice to participate. Therefore, personal agency is a significant enough factor to warrant acknowledgement in any discussion about poverty. This is not giving neoliberalism a free pass; it’s an attempt to educate the left wing academics working class people gave up on a long time ago..
In a comprehensive survey of domestic violence calls recorded by 763 police departments in half a dozen states, economists David Card and Gordon Dahl report in the Quarterly Journal of Economics that NFL losses can result in a 10% spike in domestic violence reports in the hour or so after a local football team has just suffered a loss. The volume of calls doubles when the team loses to a traditional rival, and also surges if the football team loses during the playoffs. Violence in the home runs counter to the idea that the family is a source of support and in need of protection, and sociologists and psychologists speculate that apart from cases of mental illness, many cases of domestic abuse arises from the need of one partner to exert control over the other..

Today, that speculation has become reality, meaning it’s very likely that palladium could not only hold at $1340 USD in the near future, but will most likely surpass that number in spades.
Perhaps Moos can convince his former employer to honor some or all of that agreement, but that didn work when he wanted the UNLV job and it not likely to work if he takes a job within the same conference. Maybe there a lawsuit to be threatened no matter what Oregon insists, UNLV is not a BCS school, which was the intent of the deal and some leverage to be exerted that way. But if there is no peace to be forged with the Ducks, then someone is going to have to make it worth Moos while on top of Sterk $300,000 wage to forfeit all or part of $1.4 million for doing nothing..
