    How to evaluate the membership economy?

    The content platform has embraced the membership economy in an all-round way.

    QQ, Weibo and Tencent Music launched member value-added services very early, and Akieyi and Tencent Video Learning Netflix have achieved initial results. Now, if you want to see the exclusive new fan in station B, you also need to buy members. Not only these entertainment content platforms, but also Caixin, known for its serious news content, charged in 2017. Only by becoming a member can we see the full report.

    The latest example is Zhizhi. In fact, “Super Members” and “Reading Club Members” have been introduced before, but the former membership service is the introduction of “Knowing University”, a sub-department of “Knowing University”, and this “Salt Selected Members” is the introduction of “Knowing Whole Station System”. Of course, previous members can upgrade on the original basis. With this as a node, we can explore a more complete business model, take small steps, and enter the era of membership in an all-round 上海419论坛 way.

    01

    What are the similarities and differences between Salt Selected Members and other Members

    In 2017, the idea of “idea” and “organization number” were newly established, and some people were tucking up more and more like micro-blog or even today’s headlines. But then we found that KNOWLEDGE has not become another species, because KNOWLEDGE has always been its underlying logic and community has always been the cornerstone of its products.

    Knowing how to be a member of salt selection can also see the shadow of members of other platforms, and at the same time, it is very knowledgeable. On the one hand, compared with entertainment content platform, it is knowledge-based platform, and its members’value-added rights and interests focus on dry goods rather than pure entertainment. On the other hand, compared with pure knowledge payment platform, Zhizhi not only provides members with knowledge systems in various fields, but also designs some special functions on community mechanism to open to members.

    From the specific internal rights and interests of salt selection, it includes three aspects: payment content, community function and membership user identity.

    Payment content is easy to understand, and similar to content payment platform dragonfly FM, Himalayan FM and so on, members get a lot of paid content by one-time payment. It’s not cost-effective to buy this part alone. It’s like a packaged meal.

    However, different platforms can provide different levels of content richness. Private classes, Live lectures, salt magazines and e-books are all unique content that other platforms do not have.

    In terms of community functions, some are similar to microblogging members, such as comment area mapping. For 95 and 00 later, Emoji could not express emotions completely, and various expression packages were the matching of throwing and receiving. The post-80s generation may not understand, but the knowledgeable young group is growing, and a generation has a generation of expression.

    In addition, some members’community functions are more relevant to core user tonality, such as keyword masking. What can this function do? For example, if you don’t want to see the discussion about “Luo Yonghao” in the “Recommendation” algorithm information flow, you can set up the “Luo Yonghao” keyword shield, so that Luo Yonghao will no longer appear on your home page.

    Even if you don’t like the “How to Evaluate” sentence, you can block all “How to Evaluate” questions from the recommendation flow.

    As for membership user identity, this is the most “virtual” value-added rights and interests, it combines the characteristics of QQ members and Weibo members, such as exclusive widgets, dynamic top-setting. But it is not sure, those young users are in favor of plus, after all, our batch of 80 and 90 are also dressed up as QQ space, to buy QQ show this way.

    For me, it really makes a lot of money to know that members can get paid content, to shield keywords, and to buy one gift two (extension rights), and to get PLUS and IQI members in Jingdong.

    02

    Why do we need to develop membership economy?

    For IQYI, Tencent Video, B Station, Tencent Music and Netease Yun Music, high quality video content and exclusive music copyright will inevitably mean high production costs and procurement costs.

    Since the Youku potato era, streaming media advertising has not been a sustainable business model. Membership economy, which has been verified by companies such as Naifei and Spotify, is a way of realizing the market value of tens of billions of dollars.

    However, domestic copyright awareness still needs to be improved, and the habit of paying for quality content has not yet been developed. But it’s only a matter of time. To a certain extent, the video platform and online music platform have already provided a certain degree of user education for members’fees, knowing that the node is just in time to enter.

    One obvious fact is that the more restrained the content platform, the more difficult it is to commercialize. Douban is a good example. But if it runs too fast, it is difficult to audit and filter the content. Typically, the information flow platform is full of all kinds of false advertisements.

    Knowing how to develop the membership model is precisely between taking steps in situ and rushing forward. We have found a balance between advertising and membership to become a dual engine of commercialization. Douban chips and today’s headlines are hard to do, but knowledgeable and fancy arts are very suitable.

    In the long run, the establishment, development and operation of the membership system has become an important part of the logic of the future development of the giants and unicorns. Attractive rights and interests are the main motive force to attract renewal fees and new membership, which is also an important determinant of the power structure in the second half of the Internet.

    As far as knowledge is concerned, communities have primitive deposits, which are always paid for in various forms. The paid membership system acts like a funnel, screening out high loyalty users from ordinary users. With the growth of new youth groups and the increase of willingness to pay, knowing core users will naturally become members.

    03

    Accelerate the Integration of Content and Retail Platform Membership System

    In terms of evolution, this set of membership system built by content platform was originally born in the retail industry. The first feature of the retail paid membership system is secondary payment. Consumers not only need to buy goods or services, but also pay for membership.

    Nowadays, the membership status and consumption behavior under the payment system of digital products, services and consumer gathering platforms overlap, and there is no need for secondary payment.

    After Amazon’s Price success, the membership system of content and retail platforms is accelerating integration. Initially, Amazon Prime’s membership service only included a 2-day free shipping service to encourage consumers to increase their purchases. Afterwards, Amazon introduced value-added rights such as movies, videos, e-books and music to Prime members.

    Domestic Internet enterprises have also embarked on this road since 2018. On April 27, the rights and interests of IQIYI and Jingdong members were officially online. Users only need to buy IQIYI VIP or any annual member of Beijing East PLUS, and they can enjoy the rights and interests of two members at the same time after completing the rights and interests collection and activation. On August 8, Alibaba launched the “88VIP” plenary meeting. Membership plan, covering Youku, hungry, shrimp, ticket-hunting membership rights and interests. 2018 is also called the first year of membership.

    This year, before knowing about Hejingdong, station B and Hungry Mou launched a dual membership service. Behind this convergence trend is the peak of the flow dividend.

    Whether for retail or content platforms, the ceiling of online traffic dividend is obvious, and the era of extensive focus on market growth, scale and traffic has passed. Long-term operation of membership system is a key link for intensive farming of stock.

    Essentially, the logic of the paid membership system is similar to that of the retail industry. Its efficiency lies in “flow * conversion rate * customer unit price * repurchase rate”. Multiple consumer demand drives retail enterprises to provide differentiated goods or services, while diversified knowledge demand drives knowledge platforms to provide differentiated knowledge services.

    Whether it’s BAT or a unicorn like this, it’s facing a long battle for users. Payment membership system is a platform to cultivate high loyalty users and establish a long-term stable market. Its retail products or knowledge services will impress paying customers deeply, cultivate their consumption inertia and enhance their consumption loyalty. In the process of digging gold, how far can the platform go? It is the user’s time and paying behavior to vote.

    Knicks’ Steve Mills: Porzingis’ trade demand came with Europe threat

    Knicks President Steve Mills said Kristaps Porzingis threatened to return to Europe if he wasn’t traded within seven days.

    爱上海aufl

    “He … point-blank said to us, ‘I don’t want to be here,’” Mills said at a上海419论坛ztu Chase 上海419论坛lmaFan Forum Series on Wednesday. ‘I’m not going to re-sign with the Knicks and I’m going to give you seven days to trade me, or I’m goi上海贵族上海龙凤论坛jh宝贝论坛wncng back to Europe.’”

    While this is not a new piece of the puzzle — The Post’s Marc Berman had reported as much in early February — it does mark the first time anyone from the Knicks has gone on the record over this specific demand surrounding the multi-player blockbuster trade that sent Porzingis to the Mavericks during the winter.

    Music video for ‘Runaway Train’ turns 25. New version uses modern technology to find missing kids.

    (CNN)In the 1990s, the band Soul Asylum in partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released the iconic music video “Runaway Train,” featuring missing children from around the country.

    NCMEC now has released a new version of the music video for its 25th anniversary, with new artists, a new generation of children and a modern technology to help find the kids.

    The new music video is the first time the NCMEC has 上海贵族宝贝论坛zmjvused geo-targeting technology to find these missing children. Viewers may be familiar with the technology through advertising, such as on Facebook or Instagram.

    The technology uses an individual’s IP address to find out their general location. In the c爱上海zarase of missing children, the video inserts the children that 上海龙凤论坛kewent missing closest to a viewer’s area.

    Why use the technology? Because according to the NCMEC, 61% of children reported missing are found in the state in which they disappeared.

    According to the FBI, over 424,000 children were entered as missing in the National Crime Information Center database in 2018. The figure reflects the number of reports of missing children, according to the NCMEC website.

    In 2018, the NCMEC said one in seven of the 23,000 juvenile runaways were likely the victims of child sex trafficking.

    The original上海419论坛xpi video helped recover 21 missing children, according to the NCMEC.

    Even though the video only shows a handful of children, it was recut and released every time a child was found, resulting in multiple ve上海419论坛hjrsions. The center is hoping that with the combination of the technology and the age of social media will help significantly increase the original number.

    The center collaborated with several prominent artists, such as Jamie N Commons and Grammy nominees Skylar Grey and Gallant, to create the new music video.

    Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that the song “Runaway Train” was released 25 years ago. It is the 25th anniversary of the music video’s release. The headline and story have been corrected.

    NTSB calls for greater safety measures for charter flights after recent crashes

    A Taquan Air floatplane on a commuter flight went down Monday in Metlakatla Harbor, south of Ketchikan, Alaska, killing the pilot and a passenger. On May 13, a Taquan Air floatplane and a second floatplane collided mid-air near Ketchikan, Alaska, killing a passenger on the Taquan plane and all five people on the other plane.Taquan Air said this week it has voluntarily suspended operations after the two deadly crashes.

    A Robinson R-44 helicopter also crashed in a residential neighborhood near Kailua, Hawaii, on April 29, killing the commercial pilot and two passengers, the NTSB said.

    The NTSB’s safety recommendations, which major passenger airlines have adopted, call for business and charter flights operators to implement safety management systems, reco上海419论坛wlrd and analyze flight data, and ensure pilots get training to help them avoid unintentionally flying into the ground or the water.

    The three aircraft operate under Federal Aviation Administration regulations governing the operation of business and charter flights known as Part 135. Commercial airlines operate under different regulations, according to NTSB spokesman Eric Weiss.

    “While these tragic accidents are still under investigation, and no findings or causes have been determined, each crash underscores the urgency of improving the safety of charter flights by implementing existing NTSB safety recommendations,” NTSB chairman Robert L. Sumwalt said in a statement.

    “A customer who pays for a ticket should trust that the operator is using the industry’s best practices when it comes to safety,” Sumwalt said.

    Weiss said the NTSB has occasionally seen clusters of crashes, “but we have to find out if this is a worsening long-term trend or just a cluster.”

    The NTSB will hold a roundtable for business and charter flight operators in early September in Anchorage, Alaska, according to the agency.

    “NTSB has been pushing to get the operators and for the FAA to require those operators to incorporate those lessons we’ve learned from commercial airline crashes,” Weiss said.

    The NTSB said the major airlines that have adopted its recommendations have seen improvements in safety.

    On Tuesday, another fatal plane crash occurred in Alaska, according to the US Coast Guard. One person was killed and two were injured when a Cessna A185F Skywagon crashed into Cascade Bay, 20 miles southwest of Valdez, the Coast Guard said.

    The Cessna does not fall under the same Federal Aviation Administration regulations governing business and charter flights, according to Weiss.

    Monday’s crash in Metlakatla Harbor killed pilot Ron Rash, 5上海贵族宝贝论坛wy1, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and passenger Sarah Luna, 31, of Anchorage, according to Metlakatla Police. The preliminary NTSB report for that crash has not yet been developed.

    According to a preliminary NTSB report on the mid-air crash last week, a Taquan Air pilot of a de Havilland DHC-3 Otter told investigators he had slightly descended the plane to show his passengers a waterfall when he saw “a flash from his left side, and experienced a large, loud impact,” lead NTSB investigator Aaron M. Sauer wrote in the findings released Wednesday.

    The pilot said the DHC-3 airplane then rolled right and pitched about 40 degrees nose down towards the water in George Inlet, the report said. The pilot said he said managed to maintain control, and estimated the ai爱上海otjrrplane hit the water about five seconds after the collision. Both planes in last week’s collision were carrying cruise ship guests on separate excursions.

    “As you can 上海龙凤论坛jlwimagine, the past 24 hours have been incredibly overwhelming and we are reeling from not only the incident yesterday, but also from last week,” Taquan Air said Tuesday in a news release.

    “We are grateful for your patience and the outpour上海千花网wtdping of community support and we will update you as soon as we have more information to share.”

    DAs warn City Council that bail-reform laws will be a major fail

    Top prosecutors warned the City Council on Wednesday that soft-on-crime bail-reform laws will endanger witnesses and make it easier for ­foreign cartels to smuggle drugs into the state and money out.

    The city’s five district attorneys — and Bridget Brennan, the special narcotics prosecutor — also testified that Mayor de Blasio has failed to allocate enough funding in his fiscal 2020 budget for staffing and other resources needed to deal with the changes approved by Gov. Cuomo and the state Legislature.

    “New Yorkers will be shocked and dismayed come Jan. 1, 2020, when they wake up and discover tha上海419论坛cwsyt bail reform is not limited to low-level, nonviolent offenders,” Brennan said.

    “State legislators have mandated the release of thousands of defendants charged with a multitude of serious crimes, including top narcotics crimes, with no possibility of a jail bail setting . . . Those who stand to benefit . . . include members of ­foreign cartels sent to oversee million-dollar narcotics transactions, operators of large-scale drug packing mills that churn out tens of thousands of doses of heroin and fentanyl . . . and doctors who fuel addiction by illegally exchanging prescriptions for cash.”

    A key measure of the reform bill eliminates cash bail for anyone charged with a misdemeanor or non-violent felony, which advocates claim will reduce racial disparities and ease overcrowding of jails li上海41上海千花网ig9论坛igvke Rikers 上海贵族宝贝论坛uwjvIsland.

    Other measures aim to reduce the amount of time before cases are brought to trial and prevent prosecutors from withholding evidence until the day a trial begins.

    Staten Island DA Michael McMahon said the new “discovery rules” show a “serious lack of compassion for victims” since their names and contact information will now be disclosed to defense teams.

    “Not only do these provisions threaten the safety of victims and witnesses, significantly more time, resources, and — most importantly — funding will be required to ensure their safety throughout the criminal-justice process,” said McMahon.

    Even DAs more supportive of the reforms — including Manhattan’s Cy Vance Jr. and Brooklyn’s Eric Gonzalez — said they’re concerned over lacking the government funding to carry them out.

    “The new laws make sweeping changes to our justice system — but without a single dollar allotted to achieving that end,” said Vance, adding his office needs an “substantial” budget increase.

    Councilman Rory Lancman, who is running for Queens DA, said City Hall needs to come up with a game plan.

    “I did not see anything in the mayor’s executive budget that was towards . . . ensuring these new reforms are getting implemented,” Lancman told Susan Sommer, general counsel for the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice.

    So上海龙凤论坛tskmmer said the administration is “actively involved in assessing what the cost might be,” while adding she could “not make [any monetary] commitment or set any timetable.”

    Prepare for the NBA Finals with this solid score:Ayesha Curry: 1, Internet trolls: 0.

    Some Instagram usersmade rude comments about the mom of three recently and it ended up being quite the air ball. On Tuesday, Ayesha shared a family photo after Game 4 of the Golden State Warriors vs. Portland Trail Blazers Western Conference Finals game where the Warriors won their way to their fifth consecutive NBA Finals appearance. Ayesha’s husband Steph Curryled the team with 37 points and showed off his stunning basketball skills in a series that pitted the Warriors star against his brother Seth Curry.

    Despite the brother vs. brother game, family game together for the picture and celebrated as one.

    “Infinitely proud of these guys. Gods grace and mercy continues to cover our family and we are so grateful. Not about wins and losses, it’s all about family,” she wrote alongside the picture. “Moments like this simply put it all into perspective. ‘But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and al上海贵族宝贝论坛wll these things will be given to you as well.’ – Matthew 6:33”

    In the picture, Ayesha holds their 10-month-old son Canon W. Jack Curry while Steph stands beside her. One person took a direct shot atThe Seasoned Life author’s body and wrote, “Are you pregnant again?”

    “If that kid is 30lbs he’s got some serious health issues going on,” the上海龙凤论坛tus second person wrote.

    Ayesha clapped back, “excuse you? No. Just no.”

    The 30-year-old gave birth to Canon on July 2 and he’s the third kid for the Currys and their first son. Steph and Ayesha are also parents to Riley Curry, 6, and Ryan Curry, 3.

    Before giving birth, Ayesha revealed that she went to the hospital five times during her pregnancy. She posted a photo while six months pregnant and wrote, “6 down 3 to go!Praising God because I can finally eat and cook a little bit again! Pray that it sticks for me y’all! Ive had 5 hospital stays since the new year and have pretty much been sucking at life (at least that’s how it’s felt.)”

    She has also been very open about her own body image and other insecurities. She recently sparked some backlash after making comments on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk about wh上海千花网wvceat it was like being married to a NBA star and how 上海419论坛ie”ladies will always be lurking, hoping for their moment and waiting.”

    A few days later, Ayesha added a picture to Instagram of herselfthrowing away a pair of Spanx.

    “I have never been one to cage my feelings and emotions to any capacity. I am human. It brings me pure joy to speak my mind, be vulnerable at times and to know myself inside and out,” she wrote. “Seeing as how it’s mental health awareness month I really want to take the time to encourage everyone to speak their truth regardless of perception, fitting into a mold or offending someone, because it’s YOUR truth.And that’s okay.”

    Instagram

    She continued, “If what I’m not afraid to say out loud about being a 30yr mama of 3 helps another woman like me feel like they’re not the alone and not the only one with an insecurity (because we ALL have them, don’t play) then that makes all 上海419论坛flqeof this hoopla worth it. If you get a chance to watch the actual RTT and not the headlines and rumors please do.”

    Stephquickly came to her defenseand wrote about how “proud” he was of his wife for “being authentic.”

    He penned, “Proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there- not being afraid of the potential bulls–t and nonsense that could and did come at you. Way more positive than negative with all of this. Keep being you. I love you.”

    Ayesha opened up in a recent interviewwithWorking Motherand revealed thatshe had a “botched boob job”while coping with postpartum depression that “lingered for a while” after giving birth to Ryan.

    She shared, “It came in the form of me being depressed about my body.So I made a rash decision. The intention was just to have them lifted, but I came out with these bigger boobs I didn’t want. I got the most botched boob job on the face of the planet. They’re worse now than they were before.”

    Ayesha said she would “never do anything like that again” but added, “I’m an advocate of if something makes you happy, who cares about the judgment?”

    Don’t forget the students who missed out on Robert Smith’s graduation gift

    Billionaire Robert F. Smith this week paid off the student de上海贵族宝贝论坛mbjbt of the graduating class of Morehouse College. Hooray for him! He made the 400 grads very happy.

    Who probably wasn’t quite as happy? The Morehouse grads and their families who scrimped so they wouldn’t have to take out loans to attend college and instead paid out of pocket.

    And the ambitious and financially wise students who took jobs to pay their tuition so they wouldn’t have debt. And, of course, any student who came up a few credits short of graduation and figured it coul上海龙凤论坛ufwd wait until September.

    Also unhappy will be the other billionaire上海419论坛qss and mere millionaires who are addressing college上海千花网xrp graduation classes this year. Those grads who sit before them will be wondering: If Smith can afford to spend $40 million on this wonderful gesture, why not this rich person in front of us?

    Incidentally, Mike Bloomberg — one of the richest people in the world — will be addressing the grad爱上海geuating class of MIT (tuition at $48,452 a year) on June 7. Come on, Mike, don’t let Smith show you up! Pay off the students’ loans.

    ABC

    Well that was just pure TV fun.

    Jimmy Kimmel and Norman Lear just recreated two episodes of All in the Family and The Jeffersons live with a whole bunch of stars, and as Lear explained at the beginning of the evening, the point was to explore how many of the same issues that were important back in 1973 are still relevant today.

    “We hope tonight will make you laugh, provoke discussion, and encourage action. There is so much more work we must do in this coun上海贵族宝贝论坛vpmytry we love so much,” he said.

    All in the Family‘s episode found Archie (Woody Harrelson) coming to terms with his black neighbors, and The Jeffersons dealt with Louise’s hesitation to hire a maid.

    The whole thing turned out to be extremely delightful, and made only more delightful by the fact that it was very much live, which Jaime Foxx proved when he completely screwed up a line and broke character to address it. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say he addressed it in character as George Jefferson.

    “It’s live,” he said after spouting a bunch of nonsense instead of the line he was supposed to say. “Everyone sitting at home just think their TV messed up.”

    He took a second to walk in a little circle and did a little dance while everyone else tried desperately not to laugh, and it was a moment of pure joy, with reactions captured here in GIF form.

    ABC

    First, Jamie stood still while Marisa Tomei as Edith just silently laughed behind him.

    ABC

    Then we got Woody Harrelson as Archie Bunker and Ellie Kemper as Gloria losing it.

    ABC

    Jamie Foxx, as George, walked around in a circle.

    ABC

    And then he finally laughed before launching back into the correct line.

    The whole thing can be seen in the tweet below.

    Wanda Sykes, Kerry Washington, Anthony Anderson,Sean Hayes, Ike Barinholtz, Amber Stevens West, Steven Tobolowsky, Jackee Harry, Will Ferrell, and Florence the Maid herself, Marla Gibbs, all also appeared during the hour and a half-long special

    Plus, Jennifer Hudson gave the performance of a lifetime of the iconic Jeffersons theme song, and this was all enough to have us demanding more of these. At least one a year, if not more. Bring back all the old shows! Have Jennifer Hudson perform all the theme songs! Have Oscar winners mess up all the lines!

    What a truly delightful event.

    Trump denies ‘tantrum’ in meeting with Pelosi: ‘It is all such a lie!’

    President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump rips Dems’ demands, impeachment talk: ‘Witch Hunt continues!’ Nevada Senate passes bill that would give Electoral College votes to winner of national popular vote The Hill’s Morning Report上海419论坛df – Pelosi remains firm despite new impeachment push MORE took to Twitter Wednesday night to deny House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy Patricia D’Alesandro PelosiTrump rips Dems’ demands, impeachment talk: ‘Witch Hunt continues!’ The Hill’s Morning Report – Pelosi remains firm despite new impeachment push The Memo: Trump allies see impeachment push backfiring on Democrats MORE’s (D-Calif.) characterization of his exit from a meeting with Democr上海千花网xkqatic leadership earlier in the day.

    “In a letter to her House colleagues, Nancy Pelosi said: ‘President Trump had a temper tantrum for us all to see.’ This is not true. I was purposely very polite and calm, much as I was minutes later with the press in the Rose Garden. Can be easily proven. It is all such a lie!” Trump tweeted.

    Trump left the meeting, which had been scheduled to discuss a potential infrastructure package, to hold an unscheduled press briefing in the上海贵族宝贝论坛oau Rose Garden, where he fired back at Pelosi for saying he had engaged in a “cover-up” and vowing not to work with Democrats on infrastructure legislation while they were investigating his administration and businesses.

    “Sadly, the only job the Presi上海419论坛zptdent seems to be concerned with is his own. He threatened to stop working with Democrats on all legislation unless we end oversight of his Administration and he had a temper tantrum for us all to see,” Pelosi wrote afterwards.

    In the same letter, Pelosi pledged that House committee leaders’ work on individual infrastructure bills would continue even if Trump refused to resume talks on a larger trillion-dollar package that Trump and Democratic leaders tentatively agreed to pursue during a meeting in late April.

    “Our outstanding Committee Chairs will continue to work relentlessly on bold, transformative infrastructure solutions that will create good-paying jobs, regardless of the president’s behavior,” she wrote.

    BALTIMORE — You can ho上海419论坛onp on the Acela, make your way a couple hours south of the Citi Field funny farm, and still the zaniness doesn’t stop. Bored with a lack of Mets news? As the old joke about the weather in San Francisco goes: just wait a couple of minutes.

    So in the space of a half hour and a couple of dozen taps on the Twitter refresh button, you can learn that the Mets’ outfield, which a few minutes ago seemed more crowded than the 4 train at rush hour, has suddenly populated by Juan Lagares, who onc上海贵族宝贝论坛fczye won a Gold Glove; by Jeff McNeil and J.D. Davis, who once were infielders, and by Rajai Davis and Carlos Gomez, who once — like, five years ago or so — were useful major league players.

    Edwin Diaz — about whom Mickey Callaway once (as in, like, Wednesday) would never, ever, ever, ever be asked to get more than three outs will now be asked to get as many as four (beginning as soon as possible) because, where Callaway once said, “We’ll save that kind of use for the playoffs” he now says, “We’re gonna approach this like it’s the playoffs.”

    So you find yourself making a road trip to Baltimore — where the Yankees beat the lowly Orioles, 7-5 — so you can escape the minute-by-minute adventures of New York’s Nationa上海千花网kavol League team, so you can partake in the blissful quiet of the city’s American League team, and even as you type that it makes you laugh a little.

    Because there was a time when the notion of seeking asylum with the Yankees would sound so crazy that you’d probably be directed … well, to an asylum.

    And we aren’t talking about the ancient-history Yankees, either, where Reggie and Billy and George were perpetually engaged in a hate triangle, where Graig Nettles once mused, “Some kids want to grow up to be ballplayers and some want to join the circus; I get to do both,” where Goose Gossage once spend a few minutes calling George Steinbrenner “the Fat Man” while making liberal use of all the words George Carlin said you couldn’t use on TV.

    (And this is my all-time favorite from THOSE years: when Reggie Jackson famously called himself the “straw that stirs the drink” and said that Thurman Munson “could only stir it bad,” among other barbs aimed at the Yankees’ catcher and captain, Munson’s backup, Fran Healy, took it upon himself to play peace emissary, told Munson, “Maybe he was quoted out of context.” To which Munson stared at Healy incredulously before saying, “For four bleepin’ pages?”)

    No. We’re talking about a time as recently as 2016, when Alex Rodriguez was a daily source of amusement and bemusement, an hourly font of disenchantment and disgrace. We’re talking about the old tugs of war between the various factions of the Yankees hierarchy which, several times, nearly chased爱上海qgs the team’s architect Brian Cashman, either by pushing or by jumping.

    Heck, it was only 2017 when the Yankees made a surprise trip to Game 7 of the American League Championship Series, the World Series so close you could smell the champagne, and they decided to make a change in the manager’s office despite Joe Girardi doing nothing but winning for nine years.

    It was around the Yankees that all the drama used to swirl, when it was so ea上海419论坛nhsy to get caught in the vortex.

    Now?

    Well, what passes for intrigue is the news that Giancarlo Stanton, out since the season’s first week with a variety of ails and ills, will miss some more time because of a strained calf. On most teams, losing a nine-figure All-Star would be a source of some consternation. Heck, all it took for the Mets was to lose Michael Conforto for a few days and it seemed like the whole team couldn’t buy a hit with a blank checkbook.

    But these are the Yankees — specifically, these are the Butch-and-Sundance, “Who ARE those guys?” Yankees — and so if you gave 99 percent of the fan base truth serum and asked how they felt about Stanton staying on the shelf for a while longer the answer would be, “Hey, let’s see some more of Clint Frazier!”

    Heady times, indeed. Heady and happy, with wins coming in bunches. Good times. Quiet times. It’s always pretty darned good to be a Yankee. Some times are better than others.
