  1. add to that the "Notice Requirement" imposed on the TCC in the current Agreed Interim Order and potentially you have the TCC silenced from sending general notices 48 hours before the voting deadline. Another $0.01 P.S. IMHO, the TCC should argue the Notice Requirement expire a week before voting deadline.
  2. STATEMENT OF THE TORT CLAIMANTS’ COMMITTEE WITH RESPECT TO DEBTORS’ MOTION FOR ENTRY OF AN ORDER (I) ENFORCING THE SOLICITATION PROCEDURES ORDER, (II) ENFORCING SECTION 1103 OF THE BANKRUPTCY CODE AGAINST TORT CLAIMANTS’ COMMITTEE, AND (III) GRANTING RELATED RELIEF https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/2b91f52b-5b99-47de-9089-24c1725498f7_7216.pdf Above also includes the Agreed Interim Order in Exhibit A.

  3. THE ROMAN CATHOLIC AND UNITED METHODIST AD HOC COMMITTEES’ NOTICE OF IDENTIFICATION OF TOPICS FOR WHICH THEY INTEND TO OFFER EXPERT TESTIMONY ...the Roman Catholic and United Methodist Ad Hoc Committees intend to offer expert testimony on the following topics: 1. The feasibility of the Debtors’ Plan of Reorganization, including but not limited to the achievability of the Debtors’ financial projections set forth in Exhibit E to the Disclosure Statement; and 2. The historical quantum of insurance coverage purchased by the Debtors and the Local Councils and the extent to which such insu
  4. I wanted to expand my comment about STEM. In the back of merit badge pamphlets there is a useful bibliography and list of merit badge committee (or is it subcommittee?) members (experts) who authored the content and requirements. In the field, we have merit badge counselors whose expertise ranges from hobbyist to expert with perhaps a few wannabees. Never shall the two groups communicate directly. Sure a MBC could fill in Form 512-130 with her/her comments, send it to National, and ... But why not set up a direct online dialog between the Committee members who authored the merit ba
  5. "Our youth should be seen as our training ground, where we try, and we fail, and we learn to get back up. Our young years are where we build our resilience and thirst for life." From an interview on Daily Mail about his new book.
  6. In the 80's the BSA did just that when we worked with the Bureau of Land Management to formulate Leave No Trace (LNT). The BSA had the opportunity to lead LNT but did not. In the 90's, NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) took over LNT with the US Forest Service. Other government partners joined. Government funding of these education programs was always a problem. which lead to the creation in 1994 of LNT, a non-profit educational program which marketed courses to many groups including the BSA.

  7. From Science Advances website, Nov, 2021 issue Morphological consequences of climate change for resident birds in intact Amazonian rainforest https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/sciadv.abk1743 IMHO the above is good STEM discussion material for the study of birds. I was not aware of Bergmann's (1847) rule for latitudinal variation in body mass of native bird species. Another interesting topic would be the effect of wildfires on migration. When we get around to fixing the MB program, I hope we STEM it up and enrich the learning experience and not just rehash school, i
  8. Perhaps Requirement 6 (below) should be rewritten to describe species evolution during climate change? Describe to your counselor how certain orders of birds are uniquely adapted to a specific habitat. In your description, include characteristics such as the size and shape of the following a) Beak (b) Body (c) Leg and foot (d) Feathers/plumage From NBC News: For about four decades, researchers collected and measured 77 species of birds at forest camps. The researchers collected data on more than 15,000 birds. Little changed around them — except the climate. Wet
  9. "The Nov. 6 email was sent to more than 12,000 of Kosnoff’s own clients and around 7,500 other survivors who are not his clients." More details at source: https://www.reuters.com/legal/transactional/boy-scouts-scramble-damage-control-after-inflammatory-email-survivors-2021-11-12/
  10. Joseph Csatari, and his son, Jeff Csatari, the editor of Men's Health Magazine, will present a lecture that shares memories and career working alongside Norman Rockwell. The lecture is this Saturday 1pm and will take place in the new expansion of the museum, surrounded by Joseph Csatari's exhibition: Joseph Csatari: A 50-Year Retrospective of Scouting Artwork. Commissioned to be Rockwell’s successor as the official artist for the Boy Scouts of America in 1977, Csatari captures the spirit of hope, honor, and patriotism in his paintings. In recent years, Csatari has produced pa
  11. The Debtor has a motion directed at TCC to enforce and supplement the Solicitation Procedures https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/d9144e08-fd27-42bb-ad74-6441d11e1dfd_7118.pdf as well as a Remedy, a corrective email, which is also provided in link above. ( likely a heated discussion)
  12. As I understand, the court discussion on this and specifically the email error started yesterday and will continue today https://debuscourts.zoomgov.com/meeting/register/vJItf-GqrT0pHvrymyzIrZJeWzSQ7YqInw0 https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/1572bc69-d39a-42b8-a149-1c897388ac15_7147.pdf Concur with others here that the voting process is too complex and possibly not secure. As I understand, a claimant can CHANGE their vote at any time before the deadline? Huh? My $0.02,
  13. Tamara Thomsen, a maritime archaeologist, first spotted the canoe while riding an underwater scooter in the Lake Mendota in June. Thomsen initially speculated that the boat was made by Boy Scouts in the 1950s, reports Sophie Carson for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. But when archaeologists removed a sliver of wood for carbon dating, they realized the true age of the vessel, which was likely built by a group known as the Effigy Moundbuilders. ... Wisconsin State Archaeologist James Skibo tells CNN that he was surprised to learn how old the canoe actually is. “I looked at it
  14. Nov 8, 2021 “The U.S. has changed a lot,” Dan Ownby, the Boy Scouts of America’s National Chair, observed while visiting the Medici Museum of Art on Sunday to see and critique the vast Rockwell collection the BSA owns. “He was showing the diversity of the world.” More at source link: https://www.tribtoday.com/news/local-news/2021/11/boy-scouts-national-leader-tours-medici-to-see-rockwell-paintings/
  15. I will past your disingenuous comments over to other moderators to review. As you previously stated about yourself, you are "a claimant and a former practicing attorney", contrary to your claims of being a dunce. @MattR@T2Eagle @elitts @gpurlee @Eagle1993
  16. These are getting like "...you got Medicare options.." emails. Have you received a paper ballot via US Mail, if not I suspect you will soon.
  17. Another Westcott photo - scouts hanging Christmas Seal posters in a store window. 12/14/1944
  18. Ed Westcott was the official photographer of the Manhattan Project, . He captured many of the social activities at Oak Ridge including scout activities.

  19. Reminder from Forum Moderator Policy "Posts which advertise products, services, or fund solicitations will be deleted and the member asked to pm Terry-Scouter regarding paid advertising. "
  20. Ditto, a fellow scouter in these parts created a wiki for his District that was easy and helpful. Then the mandate. He left.
  21. Update: USA Gymnastics Plan 2 Oct 25, 2021: U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robyn Moberly signed off disclosure statement for vote. "In addition to acceptance from the abuse survivors, the deal must secure support from insurers to move forward. Nearly all insurers involved have said they would back the deal, according to court papers. TIG Insurance Co is the only insurer that has not yet committed to fund the settlement."" "The proposal is nearly double the one which was rejected and criticized by many of Nassar’s victims last year, totaling $215 million/" Nov 29, voting deadline
  22. Portray a desired public appearance while maintaining control and limiting exposure and liability. Is an independent, empowered YP task force possible? Another $0.02,
  23. IMHO, the answer is right there in quote. A BSA Committee is advisory and the Working Group is not yet a Committee. Let's take an example, the United Church of Christ (UCC) Scouting Work Group prepared a Memorandum of Understand (MOU) which was approved and signed in 2016 by Rev. Dr. John C. Dorhauer, General Minister and President of the UCC, and Michael Surbaugh, National Scout Executive for the BSA. https://www.ucc.org/scouting_working_group/ Note in above link, all members of the UCC Scouting Working Group and their positions are named?? My guess, the United Church of Chris
