    So, play all playoff games at the higher-seeded arena?

    In addition to helping protect players from COVID-19, the NBA 'bubble' in Orlando may be a competitive equalizer by eliminating team travel. Researchers analyzing the results of nearly 500 NBA playoff games over six seasons found that a team's direction of travel and the number of time zones crossed were associated with its predicted win probability and actual game performance.

    Oops, the above isn't weird science, just Skynet brewing. This is what I meant:

    "What's surprising, and particularly striking about our results, is that mindfulness didn't seem to affect whether people had a more positive stress response in the moment," said Thomas Saltsman, a researcher in UB's psychology department and the paper's lead author. "Did more mindful people actually feel confident, comfortable and capable while engaged in a stressful task? We didn't see evidence of that, despite them reporting feeling better about the task afterward."

    Mindfulness does have benefits, but appears to be limited in what it can accomplish while people are actively engaged in stressful tasks, like taking a test, giving a speech or sitting for a job interview. Instead, being mindful may only benefit people's perception of their stress experience after it has ended. In that context, this research really is weird.
    Not sure if I've vented about this before here, but my opinion on mindfulness has been that it was largely bullshit, about feeling better after being fucked over.
    This seems to confirm what I've figured. I wasn't expecting this, as mindfulness (because meditation is too new-agey) has many camps of cheerleaders.
