  3. Does @kwingsfan get privileges that bleed over into August, to compensate for the delay in the July award?
  4. Yesterday
  5. Kwingsfan has been selected as member of the month for July. For being selected member of the month, they get to enjoy all the perks of Star Donor for the entire month and has been awarded the member of the month award to be displayed in his awards cabinet. Congrats and thanks for being a great member of SPHL Forums!
  6. Well from what I have read on here about this guy, you have a point.
  7. Last week
  8. Could it be that is because the Barry Soskin Hockey League calls itself a Prospects League instead of a Professional League?
  9. Here is the response I got from the league a few hours ago. Hope this helps...
  10. "agreed in principle on a memorandum of understanding" ... yeah, what could possibly go wrong under THOSE air-tight conditions?

  12. So after all this, we know Knoxville has a mask mandate. Thanks @MacGuy!
  13. So what're you sayin' here, Mac - you've burned that bridge? You & Greg should form a support group for disenfranchised SPHL fans.
  14. I was wondering about that. I seem to recall that subject coming up before. Pointstreak appears to classify them as pro. Can anyone who isn’t blocked from communicating with the league find out one way or the other?
  15. Yes, this is a hockey forum and not a medical forum. However, to respond to your second sentence, and to extend the PSA on PSA, there is controversy on how to manage early prostate cancer, and whether to even get the PSA test. Prostate cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related death in U.S. men, with an estimated 161,000 cases and 26,700 deaths in 2017.1,2 In the United States, prostate cancer will be diagnosed in one out of seven men in his lifetime. However, most cases are localized, and only one in 39 men will die from the disease.3 Per "Choosing Wisely": Do not routinely screen for prostate cancer using a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test or digital rectal exam. For men who desire PSA screening, it should only be performed after engaging in shared decision making." And "Screening for prostate cancer using PSA may prevent mortality from prostate cancer for a small number of men, while putting many men at risk for long term harms, such as urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction. Whether this potentially small benefit in mortality outweighs the potential harms is dependent on the values and preferences of individual men." From an AAFP (American Academy of Family Physicians) article: "Prostate cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related death in U.S. men, with an estimated 161,000 cases and 26,700 deaths in 2017.1,2 In the United States, prostate cancer will be diagnosed in one out of seven men in his lifetime. However, most cases are localized, and only one in 39 men will die from the disease.3 " So, many more men will die WITH prostate cancer than will die FROM prostate cancer. There is a patient information sheet in an issue of "American Family Physician": https://www.aafp.org/afp/2018/0615/p798-s1.html. Doc
  16. Is the SPHL counting games played from the FHL towards professional game totals again?
  17. Welcome to SPHL Forums. Please feel free to browse around and get to know the others. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

  18. Oh well, another topic torched. And this time with a test for a cancer that can kill if it is not detected early enough.
  19. Ah, a PSA²- a PSA for Prostate-specific Antigen and a PSA for masking- quite clever, @hockeydoc
  20. BTW- masking is an effective measure to protect yourself and others against this nasty COVID-19. I feel safer in the ER, where I wear a mask, than I feel when I am (rarely) out in public. For you sake, and especially for the sake of the vulnerable, even if you are asymptomatic, WEAR A MASK!!! Doc
  21. For a Prostate-specific Antigen, any physician or licensed physician extender (Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner) can order the test. The key is to advise the patient on how to proceed if the level is not normal. As for a Public Service Announcement, that's a different kettle of fish- seems like anyone can do one of those. Doc
