Apparently, News, and Tumblr: Overwatch League Key Dates Aug. 1, 2018: Signing window opens for teams to negotiate extensions with current players or to sign players from their affiliated Contenders team. Teams may also begin making player trades Sept. 9, 2018: Inaugural-season agreements officially end. Any players not under contract become free agents. Sept. 9-0ct. 7, 2018: Exclusive window for Overwatch League expansion teams to sign free agents. Oct. 8, 2018: Free-agent signing window opens for all teams. All teams must have a minimum of eight players under contract by Dec. 1,2018. Teams may sign or trade players until a final deadline during the 2019 season that will be announced at a later date. Players who turn 18 prior to the season deadline are eligible to sign Overwatch League contracts for the 2019 season. While the date has yet to be finalized, players born before May 1, 2001, will be eligible. Beginning with the 2019 season, the term of player agreements will no longer be fixed at one year with an additional one-year option. Players and teams may negotiate contracts for up to three years, with a maximum of one year as an option in addition to one or two guaranteed years All contracts must be submitted to the League Office for review and approval. Two-Way Players For the 2019 Overwatch League season, teams and players may negotiate the right to designate the player as eligible to compete in Contenders on an affiliated team. Any player on the roster may agree to be eligible for Contenders play, but a maximum of four players may be designated as "two-way" players during each Overwatch League stage, and those players must be identified and submitted to the League Office prior to each stage. Two way players are eligible to compete in Contenders, subject o the ollowing ules Regardless of where they play, two-way players count toward the Overwatch League roster limit of 12 and must earn the same salary and benefits. Two-way players also will count towards the eight-player Contenders roster limit for weeks in which their Contenders team designates them as eligible to compete. Two-way players lose their Contenders eligibility if they appear in more than two Overwatch League matches in a stage. A maximum of two designated two-way players may compete in any single Contenders match. No player will be eligible to appear in both Contenders and Overwatch League matches in the same week. snill0: Interesting article just came out about the player rosters for OWL 2019 Important thing to note is that they’re pushing the minimum rosters to 8 players, obviously expansion teams should be coming into the season with more than that based off how this inaugural season went (players facing burnout, mayhem’s 6 roster performance, etc). Also, players are able to negotiate contract lengths, this is super important to giving players more power since we don’t have a union yet and after finding out about the Mayhem players’ contracts+salary vs contenders players (long story short they’re rumored to be payed less than their contenders roster who are apparently the inactive spitfire players because they’re locked for potentially 2 yrs) it shows there’s some poor management going on. Free agency could be spicy too depending on how many people get cut after their inaugural season performance. As much as I hate to admit it there’s obviously some players that have fallen off, but some still have the potential and under a new team with capable players I think we can see some make a comeback. As many have said, these players are OWL caliber in terms of mechanics but it’s about the teamplay and whether their style works well. 2 Way players is another thing I’m eye’ing because letting people who are OWL level play in contenders (or vice versa) could throw some big curveballs in terms of strategies. I’m also wondering if it’s going to be used often, maybe as a way to get those benched players still playing competitive matches once in awhile.

His <a href="http://urbanintellectuals.com/2015/06/11/nigerian-professor-claims-have-cure-hivaids-that-takes-two-months/">“therapy”</a> is aluminum silicate (it’s in porcelain) and magnesium silicate (talc, which is used in baby powder). Drugs.com lists talc as a <a href="http://www.drugs.com/inactive/magnesium-silicate-122.html">pharmacologically inactive substance</a> (read: it does nothing). Together, they also <a href="http://www.drugs.com/inactive/magnesium-aluminum-silicate-380.html">do nothing</a>. He claims to have published his research in medical journals. I have searched for his name in the pubmed database, and found nothing related to AIDS, but plenty related to veterinary medicine, which is what his degree is in. </p><p>There is a long history of distrust between Africans and Western medicine, which is absolutely understandable. Recently, however, many people have taken advantage of this distrust, and target the poor and desperate by claiming that Western medicine is suppressing their “cures” (some of them are white doctors from the West). We would all like it to be true that HIV/AIDS has an easy cure, with no side effects, that could be cheaply produced, but it isn’t true right now. </p><p>For example, the government of South Africa up until recently refused to fund anti-retrovirals for its citizens because it favored “natural cures” like the African potato and turmeric. This <a href="http://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/nov/27/south-africa-aids-mbeki">contributed to the deaths of 330,000 people</a>. </p><p>“Natural cures” prevent people from seeking treatments backed by evidence. Approaching this disease so casually is dangerous. AIDS is deadly disease, but with proper treatment, it doesn’t have to be. </p><p>Please don’t spread harmful misinformation. </p><p>If you’d like to read more about the history and politics of treating AIDS in Africa, these are good links:</p><p><a href="http://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2014/07/15/331677282/fake-cures-for-aids-have-a-long-and-dreadful-history?utm_source=tumblr.com&amp;utm_medium=social&amp;utm_campaign=globalhealth&amp;utm_term=nprnews&amp;utm_content=20140818">Fake Cures Have a Long and Dreadful History in Africa-NPR</a></p><p><a href="http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2007/03/12/the-denialists">The Denialists</a>-New Yorker article detailing the activities of a German vitamin entrepreneur who self-servingly convinced the South African government to stop funding anti-retrovirals, that Western medicine was suppressing his research (he is a white German!), and the devastating effect it had on the people of that country.</p><p><a href="http://www.badscience.net/2009/04/matthias-rath-steal-this-chapter/">“The Doctor Will Sue You Now”</a>-a free chapter of a popular science book.
