Questions Answers
The pain scale speaks to us at endo in a special way. Knowing that you yourself have suffered it, I just wanted to thank you for helping us find more accurate ways to describe what's happening as we sob to our doctors. Wishing you good health in the future! Shout out to my endo peeps! That's one of the things that almost killed me (stage IV, hemorrhaging, had a hysterectomy at 27), and I feel a sort of poetic satisfaction knowing that something I made has helped my fellow sufferers deal with this hell of a medical condition.
Wishes of good health back at you, sisterfriend!

I had no idea you suffered with endo! Looking back to when I was a teenager reading your blogs it was a huge source of comfort finding an escape from the endo pain because no one believed how bad it was until I had my second lap in 2015 (age 22). They found stage II endo hanging out on my bowels and literally everywhere else, not to mention an ovarian cyst that twisted my fallopian tube shut as it grew! Another doc found ureaplasma growing for God knows how long but it had reached up to my liver and I needed 14 days of antibiotics to get rid of it, and that shit causes infertility if left untreated. My excision surgery was last December and they finally found some pelvic congestion syndrome, too (vericose veins on my ovaries, so like all of the internal tissue is engorged and purple which is equal parts disgusting and painful) and on top of that I still deal with overactive muscle spasms from dealing with chronic pain for so long. Also, I have passed over 60 kidney stones, I have a gluten intolerance, I'm wildly allergic to pork, and I'm being tested again for MS. My organs are always mad at me. So was it the hemorraging that finally convinced the doctors to give you a hysterectomy? Did you have to have your ex-husband bargain with the doctors and sign in blood that your own reproductive organs that were trying to kill you were good to be removed per his request? Or did you have a nice doctor that actually cared that you lived and had some semblance of quality of life? Also, did you grieve at all for not being able to carry babies? At this point I'd rather just get my tubes tied and not worry about traumatizing my poor organs more than they've already been through if I were able to get pregnant. I'll be 27 next month and every passing year gives me more anxiety about getting pregnant, but it's hard to convice doctors to do it when you're still young and considered fertile (even though that's up for debate in my case anyway, I'm now way more prone to ectopic pregnancies which is scary as shit and I am not about it.) Anyway, you are one of my favorite people on this planet and I appreciate everything you've done as a creator. Your imagination is endless and validating for so many people, and I use the word "parp" often to mean help when I talk to literally anyone. I don't care that they think it's weird, it's efficient. Oh my goodness, you poor thing! I remember how horrific the diagnostic process was, and there are so many secondary consequences from the constant inflammation. I just want to hug you and tell you it'll be okay. Loosely speaking, yes, it was the hemorrhaging that got me a diagnosis, and a combination of the hemorrhaging, the multiple suspicious masses all over the inside of my body, and the fact that my Ova1 test (a 5-factor immunoassay that helps the doctor predict the likelihood of ovarian cancer) came back with concerning numbers (I don't know if that test is the gold standard anymore, by the way... it sounds like there's a better one now?) Thankfully, my OBGYN is a wonderful, compassionate doctor, and he didn't require anybody else to sign off on my hysterectomy. We talked the decision through together, and it genuinely seemed like his only concern was my health and wellbeing. But there are a lot of decisions you have to make when you're considering a major surgery like this. For example, due to my young age and the severity of my condition, we had to decide (together with my surgeon) whether a full or partial hysterectomy would be right for me. It's certainly not optimal to enter menopause so prematurely, but the rate of recurrence is high for partial hysterectomies. Ultimately, we decided to leave a small portion of my least-gnarly ovary for the purposes of making hormones, but rip out the rest (along with the hopelessly tangled portions of my innards). My symptoms do seem to be coming back, but very, very slowly. Overall, I would give the decision to have a hysterectomy five gold stars, and I would not hesitate to make the same decision again. It improved my quality of life dramatically. To answer your questions about children, that part was the easiest for me. I love children, but I have never really wanted to have my own. I absolutely see why people want children, I respect the hell out of parents, and I also feel curious about what the experience would be like, but it has never seemed like a necessary component of fulfillment for me. I really feel for those who want children and need to make this decision, though. After the surgery, I looked pregnant for a good while—belly sticking out to the point that I couldn't see the floor—and I remember thinking how horrible it would be to have this visual reminder of what I'd just lost, had I felt that way about it. Anyway, I am so sorry you have to go through this. It is a truly terrible condition with painfully few options for treatment, and, despite being potentially life-threatening, it very frequently isn't taken seriously enough. Just look at how much anybody who has endometriosis writes when they get a chance to talk about it—we clearly feel misunderstood and/or dismissed by the very people who are supposed to take care of us, and that needs to change. Sorry for soapbox. This is important, though. <3
Seven years ago, one of my very best friends brought me your first book during my stint in the hospital. Laughing was still incredibly painful (as my pelvis was broken in four places among other things, yikes), so I bet you can guess how well that went over :) It's a fond memory I have of an otherwise difficult time. I have, and always will be, a faithful reader and a fan. I don't have the words to properly thank you for all the laughter you bring into a world that so desperately needs it. Do you have a favorite pair of socks? :) First: please send my regards to your pelvis. What it went through sounds horrible, and I commend its bravery. Next: my favorite pair of socks is the pair of socks my friend Kali gave me in high school. It's the only pair of socks I've ever kept for more than a year or two. I've had them for 20 years now.
i was so excited to see you were back! my husband and i has both followed you before we met, and we’ve separately checked your blog through the years to see if you were alright. when i saw you’d done another book i immediately bought the first bc i realized i never did - my question is, do you still have simple dog and helper dog? your chapter on explaining to them why they were dumb was just so perfect. I don't still have them, but Duncan (my ex-husband) does, and he gives me updates and sends me pictures when I miss them. They're getting to be old girls now, and he says they're still a handful, but have calmed down a lot compared to their younger selves.
I just finished your book a couple hours ago and it is absolutely incredible. Thank you so much for sharing your art and life with the world. Not only did you deliver a poignant story about grief and loss, but I laughed so hard I had tears streaming down my face. You are a treasure and I’m glad to see you back. Thank you for saying this! I never quite know how to respond to compliments, but this makes me feel very, very good. What is your favorite shape?
the below is a reply to the above
Triangles. No particular reason... they just resonate with me. How about you? Mine is triangles too!! (For exactly those reasons)
No question, just want to let you know how much I appreciate your work. After years of struggling to describe depression, you put it into a context that was easy for me to relate to and gave me the guts to be open about my experience. And, well, shit. That takes some special work and I don't think anything or anyone else in this big dumb world could have done that. So thank you. Here's a curveball for you: what is your favorite aspect of being depressed? (Note: this is a completely earnest question)
the below is a reply to the above
Honestly it's the isolation. My yearning for isolation has afforded me a lot of unique opportunities. If depression hadn't manifested itself into a very introverted lifestyle I wouldn't have had most of the adventures I had in my 20s. It's really made this mess of a year pretty easy. Stay six feet away from people? Avoid large crowds? GOT IT. I love and deeply relate to this perspective! I feel like depression helped me get closer to myself (bonding over shared adversity and all that), and now me and myself enjoy spending quality time together.
the below is a reply to the above
It’s really interesting that you’ve kinda bifurcated yourself into different aspects of yourself. Like explicitly recognising your own internal different personas. Do you think that our presumption of needing to make ourselves perfectly coherent and aligned when the truth is that as individuals we contain multitudes might account for some of our mental health fuckery? I definitely think it was helpful for my own understanding to recognize that, while I am physically one human, there can be many competing interests at play within the human brain at any given moment. They're all "me," but they're different aspects of me. And they need to learn how to respect each other and cooperate. The part that is always trying to protect my dignity, for instance, needs to learn how to respect the part that acts like a lizard on 32x fast-forward.
the below is a reply to the above
When those aspects compete, how do you decide who wins? How do you handle the loss for the part that doesn't? I try to be as diplomatic as possible and seek compromise. I'll listen to each side of the disagreement, and try to find some way to bridge the gap where both sides feel like they're getting a good deal.
If that isn't possible, I try my best to come up with a logical proof of some kind for what the optimal strategy might be. I'm not always correct, of course, but all the parts have at least some respect for logic, and can be convinced to concede on that basis. I try to view it as making the best play possible with the information I have.

Word. Thank you! No problem! Thanks for asking the question!
What's one piece of advice you would give to all of us? The most universal advice I can think of would be to cultivate a sense of curiosity about things—the world, other people, microwaves—whatever does it for you. Having things to wonder about is what keeps me going most days, and curiosity feels like a healthy, respectful orientation to have toward things, so it's what I would feel most confident recommending.
Also compassion, though. But compassion feels very closely related to curiosity (for me, at least).
In other news: I only kind of know what I'm talking about.
the below is a reply to the above
Hi Allie! I'm not the original commenter, but I'd really like to hear more about how you think about the connection between compassion and curiosity. Also, just a word of thanks from a longtime fan who started reading your blog at age ~11 (for months I thought the title was pronounced "hyper-bowl") and got a lot of joy out of it over the years (now shared with my little sister, who treasures your first book and is very excited for your second): I'm deeply glad of the formative impact you've had on my perspective, my sense of humor, and my appreciation for the absurd, and I'm grateful that you gave me, at times in my early life when I badly needed it, the sense that some of my struggles and my strangest feelings were shared and understood by someone. First of all, that is a very hard-hitting compliment, and I feel honored to have had such an impact on you! As for the connection between curiosity and compassion, I see curiosity as a sort of pathway toward compassion—an efficient motivating force for learning about how others experience the world, and how it's similar to what I experience, and how it might be different, and how it might still be the same in an abstract sense even though it seems different, and, through that, teach myself to truly care for others from the ground up. I'm a very ground-up person, I think. I like to get the fundamentals in place so the machine can function on its own from there.

Sdot2014: I love this! I suffered a brain injury 5 years ago and the thing that keeps me positive is having a healthy curiosity for the whole process. Brains are so intensely interesting. I get neat things like smell mix ups (my toothpaste once smelled very strongly like tuna, for example) and even the scary stuff, like discovering how my brain has rewiring, is interesting. I am now an auditory learner instead of visual, for example. Even with anxiety, I was taught to look at bad feelings with a curiosity (and self compassion, of course) and it has been a life saver. This is AMAZING advice. I_WANNA_MUNCH: I'm so glad I saw your comment. I have ADHD and all the anxieties. Looking at bad feelings with curiosity is something I've never tried but I think it would help me when I'm going through a rough patch. Thank you! Sdot2014: I’m so glad! I hope it helps! My psychologist always told me to look at it like you’re a scientist. “My chest feels quite tight - that’s interesting. I wonder what might be causing that feeling?” It kind of removes you from the feeling a little bit, and lets you be an onlooker. It’s my favourite strategy. Another strategy I enjoy is challenging anxious thoughts. This really only works for “unreasonable” anxieties though. Like being anxious about sitting on the inside of the booth because you’re claustrophobic. Some things make sense to be anxious about, but some things (like getting a needle for me!) are not as scary as your brain can think. I ask myself “what’s the absolute WORST that could happen?” Well - maybe they go too deep and it really hurts or maybe I have an allergic reaction and they don’t notice and I die. But how likely is that to happen? How many people do I know that have had that happen? How many needles has my doctor given? Really, the worst thing that might likely happen is it might hurt for a minute or so and I might pass out (I do sometimes). And I remember what that felt like and how I felt AFTER the needle was over last time (relieved and a bit silly. Haha). And I kind of talk myself out of it a bit. Doesn’t work for everyone but another strategy I use often! Props for this response! It rings very true to me, and I don't think I could have said it any better myself!
I literally made a reddit account to say hi and participate. Your works have been enjoyable for my whole family 💕 That aside, what deck build do you use in MTG? I haven't played much MTG lately (lost touch with my regular FNM group when I moved, and my computer struggles with the new Mac version of MTG:A), but Izzet or Dimir were my favorite 2-color combos. For 3-color, it would've been either Temur or Sultai. Favorite decks I've played would be UB Fae and Tarmo Twin. Favorite format is Modern.
I mostly play Hearthstone these days.
the below is a reply to the above
I used to play a few years ago with my buddies and my family and would do a Sunday night game night. Then I got a real job (9-1-1 dispatcher) and lost a lot in the process. I now occasionally get to watch my friends play. I have some friends who play Hearthstone but I haven't tried it yet. Is it worth it? I love both for different reasons. But yeah, I'd say Hearthstone is worth it. There's a lot of free single-player content, which is nice when you're just starting out.
Welcome back! From your Facebook posts it looks like you have been through Alot. I hope I’m not bringing up a painful side memory, but how are Simple Dog and Helper Dog doing? The last time I talked to Duncan (about a week ago), they were doing great! They're getting gray around their faces now, which is adorable and also bittersweet. They'll always be monsters, but I miss my monsters in a very fond way.
the below is a reply to the above
This was the very most reason I came to your AMA. Since way back when you first wrote about them, I've felt like I'm a combination of simple dog and helper dog and now I'm crying because I missed you but also miss them and also miss myself. It's been a not good couple of days (weeks months years life). Thank you for still being alive and coming back to say hi. I'm going to go buy your book now before I forget again (I'm 8 months into long covid and it's messed up my short term memory & I've been remember forgetting since I first saw you post about it). Weird question, but what do you think you most need to hear right now? (Any answer is okay—we can just explore the feelings if you want)
the below is a reply to the above
That one day I will be able to go flat out for 18 hours straight and do all the things I want just like I used to everyday and that I'm not failing myself and my family by being bedridden and also I'm not lazy. Mostly that I'm not failing everybody by being sick for 8 months. Okay, I might be able to help you with this one! (I also need to hear this from time to time, so I have at least a little practice with it). I'm not usually bedridden, but I struggle with things that feel very heavy to me (depression, ADHD, a host of chronic autoimmune conditions), and I often need to contend with the discrepancy between how much energy I have, and how much energy it seems like I'm supposed to have. And it can be hard to locate the line between going easy on myself and going too easy on myself, so I constantly question which one I'm doing (I wish there was an objective way to tell—brain calorimeters or something).
Anyway, what you're going through is legitimately hard, and it's okay to have a hard time with hard things.
Also, it's okay for others to have a hard time with it. It can be hard for everybody without it being anybody's fault, if that makes sense. And it definitely isn't lazy to struggle with being bedridden! Like, I know it's hard for my husband when I'm incapacitated by pain for the fourth day in a row, and can't help with washing the dishes because my joints are on fire and my hands are too weak to hold anything, and it's necessary for me to understand that, but I also need to be compassionate about my limitations.
It's also okay to feel frustrated. I feel frustrated all the time—by my limitations, by my vices, by the seemingly nonsensical distribution of fairness in the universe—it's human to feel frustrated by things beyond your control, especially when you're also sort of responsible for dealing with the consequences.
I think I'm writing this much because I relate, and I also maybe needed to hear this today <3

You've been pretty open to questions so hopefully this isn't prying to much,do you have EDS or Fibro? Your pain description resonates a lot with how my body acts up sometimes. I don't actually know what it is yet, unfortunately. I have several diagnosed conditions (celiac disease and the associated skin condition, stage IV endometriosis, pineal gland cyst, Reynaud's syndrome), but I don't know if any of those are what's causing the pain, and the diagnostic process has been pretty convoluted. Lupus sounds plausible, but I hear it's never lupus.
I get fevers at least a couple times a month for no particular reason for a day or two, and with the fevers, I get really severe body aches, sometimes crippling headaches, and fatigue (but that could just be from the pain). The only thing that helps the pain is Benadryl (works better than opiates, even), but nobody has been able to tell me why that could be.
There have been a few instances of acute hand pain where I lose grip strength and can't pick anything up for a week. The pain is bad enough that I can't sleep, and it radiates from my middle and index fingers down through my proximal thumb joint and into my wrist.
Anybody want to play doctor with me?!
Edit: these replies are definitely motivating me to go see a rheumatologist and get some blood work done! I'm sorry you guys had to go through this too, but I appreciate the help!
the below is a reply to the above
You need to find a rheum who's willing to diagnose you/at least work with you going on physical symptoms. I think you're in Oregon right now, yeah? My rheum is Dr. Rebecca Muntean in Spokane, WA. Long-ass drive there but so completely worth it. She finally got me diagnosed in January after suffering since I was a high schooler (I'm 36 now). Your symptoms are identical to mine. My bloodwork didn't show shit, but six months on HCQ has me feeling like a new woman. Has anyone done blood panels on you for stuff like rheumatoid factor? The other thing is... have you been checked for mast cell disorder? The Benadryl helping is a clue there. Either way, you need a competent & compassionate rheumatologist and allergist. Thank you so much for this reply! You may have just convinced me to see a rheumatologist, which is a pretty big deal considering how resistant I seem to be to seek medical treatment (the diagnostic process has been absolutely brutal for me so far, so I sort of subconsciously avoid it now).

I am glad to hear they are doing well, but sad to hear that they are no longer a part of your everyday life. Perhaps you can get a new charismatic pet to write about, like a rescue owl, or a fainting goat. I have a cat named Squirrel! He is a very silly boy, but in a very different way.
the below is a reply to the above
Now that you are a cat household, would you consider adopting a dog again? Definitely! We plan to adopt a puppy as soon as we have a large yard again!
You book is very laugh and sad. Ihave you been able to visit animal planet after you had a bird-mating-dance-based existential crisis? If so, what is the best animule? After that incident, animal planet sort of became a symbol for me—a symbol of how absurd I am (and how absurd everything is). Once I got past the initial discomfort (it took years), I found a lot of comfort in that. So I keep watching to remind myself.
Due to how utterly absurd all animals are, I do not believe it would be logically possible to rank them in the abstract. But I do enjoy the facial expression that frogs and lizards make.
Hiiiiiii! I'm Allie's husband Kevin. I know some things about Allie too and I may occasionally pop in to answer the softball questions. Feel free to respond to me with as much warmth or hatred as your belief system allows. Can confirm: this is my husband. Thank you for helping, Kev!
the below is another reply to the original question
Kevin sounds like a made up name. I am sceptical. I can respect that. What evidence would convince you?
the below is another reply to the original question
Which style of softball do you think is superior, fastpitch or slowpitch? I do not know enough about softball to answer this, but I would be willing to try if somebody could break down a few of the similarities and differences for me.
the below is another reply to the original question
Why would she need help? Because everybody needs a buddy sometimes :]
I’ve missed you. I love your art and your writing and I hope it brings you joy that you make so many people happy with your talents. Also - what is your favorite spice? Or spice girl? Either one is fine. Favorite spice is cayenne, favorite spice girl is Scary Spice!
Hi Allie! I loved your first book so much- I couldn't put it down when I first got it! When I saw this post I got really excited- I can't believe you're doing an AMA! On my end I wanted to try ask you a couple of lighthearted anythings- how did you and Kevin meet? Is it a sweet story? A simple one? And how is Squirrel doing?? I hope you're doing okay today! We met on OKCupid, actually. I don't know what it's like now, but back when I was on there, you had to favorite three people when you created a profile, and he was the first guy I favorited :) We were, I think, a 96% match or something. We messaged back and forth for a long while, went on a few dates, found we really liked talking to each other (he likes to get into the weeds philosophically, which is very important to me), and decided to make it official. We got married approximately three years after.
Squirrel's good. He had a bit of a weird night last night because all the smoke alarms in our whole house went off at the same time, but he's a resilient little fellow.
Hi Allie! I wrote my college thesis on your blog! Yes, I really did. Thank you for my degree! That's really cool, and I feel honored! What was the general thrust of your thesis?
the below is a reply to the above
I analyzed the type of stylistic devices you used in three of your most popular blogs (as of 2012, when I graduated) to determine what type of language made it funny (similes, metaphors, and yes, hyperbole!). It was a blast! I would have to dig up the paper out of digital mothballs to remember what my conclusions were, but absurdism and hyperbole ruled supreme... As they should. I can't even begin to describe how validating this feels! Somebody studied me! A whole other person took the time to learn about me!! (Academically, no less).
More pictures of the Pile Dog - For anybody wanting to see pictures of the sweet and wonderful creature I refer to as the pile dog, Kevin put together this album. I'm commenting for visibility :)
I'm super fucking awkward and don't know how to interact with other humans. My whole process on trying to figure out how to communicate with you during this AMA is as follows: OMG, ALLIE IS DOING AN AMA! I LOVE AND OWN BOTH OF YOUR BOOKS!! omg what do I ask? Do I ask if she likes cats? Does she want to see my cats? Will you be my friend? Y'know, in the way that we acknowledge the existence of each other for a millisecond but never have to talk to or see each other kind of way because social interaction is hard? success Yes, I will absolutely be your friend, and I love that you drew a friendship comic. Perhaps you are not so bad at interacting with others, eh? Perhaps you are even good at it!
Do you have any pictures of the pile dog you could share. I’m very invested in her story. Here's one of my favorites:
What would you like to know about her story?
What is the very best cheese? Going with my gut on this one: Pepper Jack. On average, I eat four sticks of it a day.
Edit: What's your favorite cheese?
the below is a reply to the above
What are your thoughts on Jarlsberg cheese? Room temperature cubes are where it’s at IMO. My first thought is wondering whether I have ever tasted Jarlsberg cheese, and, immediately after that, wondering if it's the stinky cheese my aunt Kathy gave me that one time, then right after that, I kind of had this weird, scuttle-y feeling where I questioned the breadth of my cheese knowledge. This was followed by an intense wish for google to have a taste feature. I want instant answers to my cheese questions!
Did that goose ever come back? Not that I know of, but that doesn't mean he didn't.
On the off chance that you're still reading these I just wanted to join the chorus of fans who got a lot out of you're work and honesty. The stigma associated with depression sucks and it has been real, real nice to see myself in the things you've shared. The kind of madcap but wholly relatable humor you have perfectly captured is maybe the most precious smidgen of daily joy that keeps me going despite also cyclically eating depression dirt every year or two. I'm super duper happy to see you cruising and log jumping and verbally smiling all over this AMA. Thanks for existing. No question just sisterly love. Sisterly love accepted, and sisterly love returned :)
No huge thoughts, just wanted to thank you sincerely for being a laugh when we needed it most, and to wish you as much success as you can hang with. Also, while reading your latest, I wondered if you'd read "Animals in Translation" by Temple Grandin? It's a super-interesting dive into animal thought patterns and behaviors, and you spend a lot of time thinking about animal brains, so maybe check it out if you haven't yet? I think this is my first ever reddit comment? It's yours. :) Take care, and continue to rock. Congratulations on your first Reddit comment!! I love the comments section here. I actually do a lot of writing practice under my secret alternate account over on AskReddit! Anyway, I have not read Animal in Translation, but I'm gonna add it to my list because it does sound like something I'd be interested in! Thank you!
the below is a reply to the above
OmG are you one of the reasons for why a lot of those askreddit and advice reddits are all "this shit is made up lock post!!!" at everything? Haha, probably not. I'm either shitposting to practice my improv skills, testing out real stories (which I delete as soon as they start getting upvotes), or writing walls of text about whatever topic I'm most interested in that day.
We'll find that guy someday, though. I know it.
Oh my God! I read your Depression series at least once a week. Can't believe you've showed up like this again after 7 years of radio-silence and even more I can't believe I missed it with one day I'm still here! What would you have wanted to ask?
Ah I'm too late! I have nothing to say that hasn't already been said, but just wanted to post that I love your work and have missed your presence on the internet and in my life. ♥ Not too late! You can even still ask questions if you want to! Alternatively (or in addition), would you be able to teach me how to make a little heart like that? All I know how to do is this: <3
I’m so glad you’re back! What’s your favorite type of cookie? Also, are any of your current animals special? TheSaulK: Allie has celiac disease and so one may question whether the things she can eat are actually "cookies." My cousin visited us from Portland last year and brought pastries from a dedicated gluten-free bakery and that's the last time I can remember her having anything like a baked good. She says her grandma's molasses cookies were her favorite.
Squirrel is our only animal and he's literally the best cat there is.
the below is a reply to the above
How open is Allie to people sending her gluten-free baked goods (probably outside of COVID times) to a PO Box or something? TheSaulK: She appreciates and loves you but she has the severity of celiac disease that should really be measured in parts per zillion and at this point really can just risk eating stuff she literally sees get made, like some sort of samurai if you will.
the below is presumably continued from "Why would she need help?"
Thank you. It’s bizarre. I don’t give a shit about downvotes. Still, maybe we should refrain from's an AMA! Every question is legitimate, and I appreciate the concern! To clarify: I asked him to participate because I thought it would be fun, and also help to have an extra pair of eyes on the questions :)

2020.10.12 21:32 glimmeronfire Strange email from “FidelityLife” that ends in a while dump of random gibberish

I’m sorry this is so long but I copied and pasted everything in the email onto here. I got an email from FidelityLife but the address is actually “[email protected] boyhip. net” and was sent to me at “[myemail]” but I use gmail so I’m not sure how this even got to me. If anybody has some insight as to what happened, why all that gibberish is there, what it might mean, or how it got to me, I’d really appreciate it. Again, sorry for the long post. Thank you. Edited to add: A lot of the random stuff below was in different font sizes, underlines, strikethroughs, links, and languages. Obviously the formatting didn’t stay the same when I copied it. It’s so strange.

Headlines. A line designed to get into your head. And it works, judging by the amount of circulation of conspiracy posts that help move those headlines that masquerade as revealing connections, but are merely propoganda headline clones being disseminated.
So lets get ahead of the lines before the lines get into your head.
Humans have two primary modes of communication; verbal and nonverbal. Nonverbal is body language. Body language on it's own can give you insight. Pairing verbal and nonverbal gives you the whole picture. Headlines are verbal. The content is nonverbal. That's how you get a glimpse of the bigger picture. But we can't look at each article as a completed part of the communicative process. That would be like only watching hand gestures while having a conversation with someone. The article isn't the subject, the event is the subject, and if the subject was person, then we have to find as many articles as we can to profile the body language and interpret the nonverbal communication.
Let me show you what I mean.
Offender Conspiracy Article Profilingcriminal article profiling, is an investigative strategy used by law enforcement agencies conspiracy theorists to identify likely suspects hidden motives and has been used by investigators conspiracy theorists to link cases subjects that may have been committed by the same perpetrator. Multiple crimes may be linked to a specific offender event and the profile may be used to predict the identified offender's conspiracy's future actions real intent. Criminal Profiling Here
And then.
Nonverbal communication (NVC) Multiple Article Profiling (MAP) • is the transmission of messages or signals through a nonverbal platform multiple article content searches (MACS) such as eye contact, facial expressions, gestures, posture, and the distance between two individuals, article source, differing information, dates, pov, and the connections between the sources. It includes the use of visual cues such as body language (content), distance (dates) and organizations/politicians, corporations, law enforcement, environmental issues, economics, and technology/AI. Original NVC Content Here
I have no doubt that the actors who have advanced copies of the script are using data algorithm aggregation that compiles the different content sources into a complete picture for them. We plebs aren't so lucky, we have to peruse and parse multiple sources to connect the dots. In essence, we are the plebs living in a technofuedal era before the invention of the modern Gutenberg technopress for the masses.
So let's throw on some work boots, grab a shovel, and start digging.
The Hacks and Muckrakers.
May 18, 2018: Vanity Fair • “We just got back from the Middle East,” he told a room full of Israelis, upon arriving in Jerusalem from Saudi Arabia last May. Source Here
May 22 2017: Slate • The President Just Told a Room of Israelis That He “Just Got Back From the Middle East” Source Here
Trump. The man's Presidency has come at a time where it's all starting to fall apart. And I can't help but think of Trump as Julius Caesar part two. A populist leader who threatened the establishment and upended the republic, paving the way for Augustus Caesar and the soft introduction of Roman empire, as it let the pretenses of being a Republic fade away. If you aren't familiar with that time of history, I would highly recommend doing so. There is more to my comparison that I'm not elaborating on, except to say, if you dig you will find someone else who loves Roman history, looks like a clone of Augustus, and we watched as he made rounds while articles suggested that he had aspirations of becoming President. Do I think that it'll happen soon? Probably not. History doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes. And we're only at the start of the Hollow Men by T S *Eliot *.
December 14, 2016: Techcrunch • President-elect Donald Trump met with some of the most prominent executives from the tech industry today at Trump Tower, with investor Peter Thiel and Vice President-elect Mike Pence at his side. Trump opened the meeting with CEOs from Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and others by thanking Thiel for his support. “I want to add that I am here to help you folks do well. And you’re doing well right now and I’m very honored by the bounce. They’re all talking about the bounce. So right now everybody in this room has to like me, at least a little bit,” Trump said, perhaps in reference to the fact that he received little support from Silicon Valley during his campaign. “We’re going to try to have that bounce continue. Perhaps even more importantly, we want you to keep going with the incredible innovation. There’s nobody like you in the world. There’s nobody like the people in this room and anything we can do to help this go along, we’re going to be there for you. You’ll call my people, you’ll call me, it doesn’t make any difference. We have no formal chain of command around here,” Trump said.
Interesting, wouldn't you say? No formal chain of command around here. They thanked Peter Thiel for his support. Ok. Maybe nothing, maybe something. Ok. It's something.
August, 2018 Articles: • Trump claims Google is suppressing positive news about him. • Trump: Facebook, Twitter, Google 'have to be careful'.
Stop the presses, because were getting squeezed and pasteurized. The tech leaders meet with Trump. They thank Thiel, suggesting that he organized the assembly. And then Trump starts bashing the Technocrats that he's meeting with? Nothing but Bread and Circus. Plain and simple.
June 27, 2017: Tech Transparency Project • No other company in America was as intimately tied to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party during Barack Obama’s eight years in office than Google. Today the company is doing everything it can to restore the same cozy White House access it enjoyed under President Obama. Eric Schmidt has attended at least two meetings with Trump and attended a third White House meeting with tech leaders last Monday. At the same time, The Groundwork – a secretive Schmidt-funded startup that ran the Clinton campaign’s data operation – recently relaunched itself as a technology platform for liberal organizations working to fight the Trump Administration’s agenda. By all appearances, Google appears to be working overtime to both ingratiate itself with the Trump Administration while simultaneously cashing in on the “resistance” to Trump’s agenda. Source Here
By all appearances? He's working both sides? Trying to cash in? Really? Seriously? Let's break that down.
** 2020 • Eric Schmidt/Net worth: 15.3 billion USD. Call me crazy, but I don’t think a guy with 15 billion dollars is worried about "cashing in**". As I've stated numerous times, this is no longer about money, it's about control. That's imperative to understand. You don't worry about the money hidden under the mattress when you have a locked vault full of cash. Money is only an incentive for those who either don't have it or need more of it. Neither of those categories apply to Eric Schmidt.
So lets examine how badly the Tech guys and Trump aren't getting along, shall we?
March 2, 2016: Defense News • Google Executive Schmidt To Head New DoD Advisory Board. Source Here
Ah. He's working for the Pentagon to make it better. And this happens almost a full year before meeting with Trump. This doesn't look like someone playing both sides, this looks like a team player in a game that only has one team. This is political wrestling that would make Vince McMahon envious. If you want to dive deeper into how Eric Schmidt funded the non profit that started fake news, here's a previous Flatten the Curve post. Part #19
Attendees included Eric Schmidt and Larry Page of Google, Tim Cook of Apple, Satya Nadella and Brad Smith of Microsoft, Jeff Bezos of Amazon (who expressed his excitement that Trump’s administration could be “the innovations administration“), Safra Catz of Oracle, Chuck Robbins of Cisco and Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook. Thiel’s business partner, Palantir CEO Alex Karp, attended as well.
Those are big names and big companies. But they all hate Trump, right?
Thiel has been instrumental in shaping Trump’s approach to technology, helping assemble a list of candidates for technical roles in the upcoming administration and reportedly bringing David Sacks and other long-time associates to the transition team. During his speech at the Republican National Convention, Thiel talked about spreading the prosperity of Silicon Valley to other regions across the country and cited space travel as one of America’s great technological achievements. “Instead of going to Mars, we have invaded the Middle East,” Thiel said.
I should point out that Thiel and Musk started PayPal together.
November 24, 2019: Business Insider • What do the founders of YouTube, Yelp, Tesla, and LinkedIn have in common? Apart from leading massively disruptive technology companies, their founders all share a common resume line item: employment at PayPal. Known for their entrepreneurial mindset and anti-establishment attitude, this elite group is known as the "PayPal Mafia," and they all put in time during the payment platform's early days some 20 years ago. Source Here
Oh. And Pete's instrumental to creating Facebook. Thiel became Facebook's first outside investor when he acquired a 10.2% stake for $500,000 in August 2004. He sold the majority of his shares in Facebook for over $1 billion in 2012, but remains on the board of directors. And he funded Hulk Hogan's lawsuit to take down Gawker. Told ya, it's just political wrestling to entertain us.
However, one of the biggest proponents of travel to Mars, Elon Musk, has also been one of Trump’s most outspoken critics. Musk donated to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and frequently denounced Trump, saying that the former reality television star “doesn’t seem to have the sort of character that reflects well on the United States.” But since the election, Musk appears to have warmed up to Trump. He was a late addition to the invite list for today’s meeting. The transition team also announced this morning that Musk will join Trump’s strategic and policy forum, a group of business leaders that will serve as an advisory committee to the president-elect. Source Here
Musk and Trump, a marriage made in heaven. It's destiny, I tell you, destiny. Or an act (don't worry Elon, I haven't forgotten about you) designed to make us believe that somebody up there is fighting for us down here.
Yet the inclusion of the quote about Mars and War in the Middle East stands out, wouldn't you agree? And we have environmental collapse triggers happening. Riots happening. Why those riots are also happening in Beruit, aren't they? And Isreal and Saudi Arabia don't get along with Lebanon, or the Hezbollah. And President Trump went from Suadi Arabia to Isreal, didn’t he? And wasn't there an explosion there recently? Must all be a coincidence. Let's get back to Pete the magical Thiel and see what else Hulk Hogan's buddy is mixed up in.
He co-founded Valar Ventures in 2010, co-founded Mithril Capital, serving as investment committee chair, in 2012, and served as a partner at Y Combinator from 2015 to 2017. Through the Thiel Foundation, Thiel governs the grant-making bodies Breakout Labs and Thiel Fellowship, and funds nonprofit research into artificial intelligence, life extension and seasteading. A co-founder of The Stanford Review, he is a conservative libertarian who is critical of high government spending, high debt levels, and foreign wars. He has donated to numerous political figures. At the 2009 Singularity Summit, he said his greatest concern is the technological singularity not arriving soon enough. Source Here
Singularity. Not. Arriving. Soon. Enough. Call me paranoid and pass the tin foil hat, but what Matrix code is needed to decipher his words intent? Not soon enough for what? Better Netflix selection? The Alien invasion? Godzilla awakening because of Fukushima? Are the Decepticons already here? Or have they been downplaying the ELE that's approaching? I'll take ELE for a thousand, Alex.
So he's into AI (he backed Deepmind and OpenAI) and life extension. He went to Stanford. He's also going to have his body cryonically preserved. And his Palantir surveillance is, well, nottofreakyououtoranything, everywhere. Palantir's first backer was the Central Intelligence Agency's venture capital arm In-Q-Tel. Then Palantir became Big Brother. Literally. The Palantir clients include the CIA, DHS, NSA, FBI, CDC, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, Special Operations Command, West Point, the Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Organization and Allies, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. And Palantir is also being used by Banks, Hedge Funds, Financial Services, and other corporate clients.
Big Brother wants to be Palantir went it grows up.
Now, are you wondering why I started with Trump, Saudi Arabia and Isreal? Are you curious about how it goes from ex CEO of Google Eric Schmidt "playing" both sides of the fence to Palantir and Peter Thiel? Just sit right back and hold tight, cause I'm about to take you on a one way trip to a Brave New Normal World that's called 1984.
Warning. What you're about to read will make you forever question every officially sanctioned narrative. Trust me. Still game? Are you sure? Last chance. You're about to leave neverneverland and you can't go back. Alright. Let's go.
It's All Hidden In Plain Sight.
Let's talk about Epstein. Yep. Him. I've been strangely quiet about Jeffery haven't I? Nothing written about the Captain Pedo and his Amazing friends didn't mean there was nothing there, it just meant that I didn't find anything that indicated something deeper than a pedophile blackmail ring. And sex and political blackmail is as old as time itself. There's a reason they say the world's two oldest professions are prostitutes and politicians. Yet it turns out the professional pimp and the abducted teens may be playing a bigger role than we thought.
July 31, 2019: NY TIMES • Mr. Epstein’s vision reflected his longstanding fascination with what has become known as transhumanism: the science of improving the human population through technologies like genetic engineering and artificial intelligence. Critics have likened transhumanism to a modern-day version of eugenics, the discredited field of improving the human race through controlled breeding. Mr. Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, which he confided to scientists and others he hoped to use as the site for seeding the human race with his DNA.
Welcome to the Island of Dr. Moreau. We're it's the monsters trying to make humans. Do you still think this was all about blackmail, cause it wasn't. Stop thinking in normal terms, because normal is dead, long live the New Normal.
At one session at Harvard, Mr. Epstein criticized efforts to reduce starvation and provide health care to the poor because doing so increased the risk of overpopulation, said Mr. Pinker, who was there. Mr. Pinker said he had rebutted the argument, citing research showing that high rates of infant mortality simply caused people to have more children.
Epstein criticized efforts to reduce starvation and provide health care. Hmmmm. My memory is foggy, but isn't there someone in Africa trying to provide health care and reduce starvation? Who could that be? Wasn't he into computers and had pictures taken on Epstein’s private jet? Wasn't it Bill Gates? Now why would Billy be hanging around someone who would vocally espouse an ideology that is completely antithetical to his stated humanitarian goals?
Also at the Indian Summer dinner, according to an account on the website of Mr. Brockman’s Edge Foundation, were the Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page and Jeff Bezos, who was accompanied by his mother.
Then there was Mr. Epstein’s interest in eugenics. Once, at a dinner at Mr. Epstein’s mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Mr. Lanier said he talked to a scientist who told him that Mr. Epstein’s goal was to have 20 women at a time impregnated at his 33,000-square-foot Zorro Ranch in a tiny town outside Santa Fe. Mr. Mr. Lanier, said he had the impression that Mr. Epstein was using the dinner parties to screen candidates to bear Mr. Epstein’s children. Mr. Epstein did not hide his interest in tinkering with genes — and in perpetuating his own DNA. Interviews with more than a dozen of his acquaintances, as well as public documents, show that he used the same tactics to insinuate himself into an elite scientific community, thus allowing him to pursue his interests in eugenics and other fringe fields like cryonics. One adherent of transhumanism said that he and Mr. Epstein discussed the financier’s interest in cryonics, an unproven science in which people’s bodies are frozen to be brought back to life in the future. Mr. Epstein told this person that he wanted his head and penis to be frozen.
More Epstein and Eugenics. Source Here
Now call me crazy, but there's some strangeness happening. Cryonics, don't die, just Let It Go and get Frozen. First Peter Thiel, now Epstein. Let's hope the AI Singularity arrives in time, right?
Now I wouldn't have even bothered with their shared interest of joining the Walt Disney Cryonics Club, if there wasn't more in play, and there's more in play.
August 9, 2019: TRT World • The billionaire shared the same personal network that included Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak, infamous Blackwater founder Erik Prince, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, UAE Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed, Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.
According to investigative journalist Vicky Ward, quoting a meeting with Trump’s transition team, Acosta told a White House official: “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone.”
That's a bit of an exclusive club, kinda like being in the Mouseketeer CIA club. But, hey, nothing to see here, is there? But just in case, let's look into the company that Epstein worked with, Carbyne.
This single company, Carbyne, brought together a who’s who of power brokers and intelligence figures from multiple regions including Russia, China and the Trump administration itself, with Epstein at its heart. Officially, Carbyne provided high-tech solutions for emergency centres. In reality, it existed in a grey area giving it unprecedented access to private information, with significant potential for privacy abuse. Carbyne provides a service for police emergency centres, providing complete access to the caller’s camera and GPS, providing the dispatcher with a live video feed.
Ok. So Epstein and Thiel both are into AI, Surveillance, and Cryonics. President Trump was in Isreal and Saudi Arabia in May 2017. And who ended up in Isreal just afterwards?
PayPal Founder in Israel: Too Much Copying and Not Enough Innovation in High-tech
June 15, 2017: Haaretz • Billionaire Peter Thiel visits Israel – and gives out tips on how to build a successful startup. Source Here
Hey, one month after Trump visited the Middle East, Peter Thiel decides to take middle eastern vacation to give out business tips. And then Thiel must've reciprocated and invited the Fresh Prince of Saudi Arabia to get the all inclusive Palantir surveillance pitch. Smile for the camera everyone, cause the world's a stage and we're filming a world wide Truman Show.
April 7, 2018: Gulf News • Google, Thiel feature in Saudi Prince’s Silicon Valley tour. The Saudi delegation visited several Silicon Valley corporate campuses, including Apple Inc. and Facebook Inc. In addition to Facebook, where Thiel sits on the board, the Saudi delegation visited data-analysis start-up Palantir Technologies Inc and a trio of investment firms created by Thiel: Clarium Capital, Valar Ventures and Founders Fund. Thiel is chairman and co-founder of Palantir. Source Here
March 17, 2020: Forbes • These responders are now using a tool built in part by former members of Israel’s military intelligence—Elichai being one—that’s backed by Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, who is now the company’s chairman, and a small, passive investment from deceased multimillionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. SourceHere
Ok look. I get it. Rich people make investments, those investments are bound to end up in the same company. But these companies aren't exactly run of the mill home security systems, are they? Nope. This is the kind of surveillance systems that the KGB or the Stasi could only dream of. And when you wish upon a star dreams come true. And Peter Thiel must be wishing upon a star.
Ok. Strap in, buckle up, and try to keep up, or you're gonna get left in the dust. Cause it's boom or bust from here on out, and we're gonna add it up like the count.
So Elichai owns Carbyne. Peter Thiel invested in Carbyne. And Carbyne is in the USA linked to the 911 system, and it's being used to fight the pandemic.
Forbes (Link Above) • Its founder thinks Carbyne’s tech could make the lives of 911 dispatch and healthcare professionals much less chaotic in the Covid-19 crisis. Carbyne relies on callers submitting themselves to self-surveillance via their own mobile phone. Once a caller uses their Android or iPhone to call 911 (85% of emergency calls now come from mobile devices), they receive a text message that asks for permission to get their precise location and access video from their smartphone camera.
Step right up and give your permission to be saved. Big Brother is looking out for you.
So Elichai used to work for the 8200. Cool name, right. I'm not sure about you, but that sounds pretty dystopian. And I've gotta say, that all of Technocrats that are promising us an AI utopia, sure seem to be getting ahead of the curve by building doomsday bunkers for a dystopia. And here we sit wasting our time Doomscrolling.
So what else has sprung up from the 8200? Have you ever heard about the NSO Group?
November 1, 2019 - WhatsApp identified an Israeli company, NSO Group, as having developed the spyware called Pegasus, which it held responsible for the breach. This disclosure was part of a lawsuit WhatsApp has filed against the NSO Group in a US federal court, saying the company was actively involved in hacking users of the encrypted chat service. As per the WhatsApp complaint the “target users included attorneys, journalists, human rights activists, political dissidents, diplomats, and other senior foreign government officials.” NSO’s spyware Pegasus has been reportedly used to target journalists in Mexico investigating drug cartels, rights group Amnesty International, human rights activists in UAE, activists in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. According to Israeli news reports, Saudi Arabia paid $55 million for its use. The contract was later frozen over the scandal alleging NSO software's role in Saudi Arabia tracking slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the months before he was murdered in the Saudi Embassy in Turkey. In India, 17 people, who are known to be targeted include activists and human rights lawyers. Source Here
Whoops. Do you remember Jamal Khashoggi? He was trying to expose Human Rights abuses against Saudi Arabia. And then Suadi Arabia decided to murder him, and confirm that they were abusing human rights. Jamal paid the ultimate price to prove his point. But who is selling the hacking tools? At this point they all seem to be springing up from members of the 8200, and the companies they started.
TRT - Link Previously Provided • DarkMatter, a UAE surveillance and intelligence group employing former NSA operatives was built on the back of a larger initiative to modernise Emirati intelligence and military operations. The group took part in at the Arab Future Cities Conference in November 2015, where it presented a vision of smarter, tech-driven cities, which caught the eye of Chinese officials. Smarter cities meant Big Brother-esque widespread surveillance installed throughout the UAE. Only two years later in April 25 2017, DarkMatter signed a Global Strategic Memorandum of Understanding with Huawei, a leading Chinese company, for the same ‘Big Data’ systems and ‘Smart City’ solutions. The middle man? None other than Erik Prince, who had gone from working for the Emiratis, to working for a Chinese billionaire. In suspect timing, the Memorandum of Understanding also took place right before China scaled up its total surveillance and crackdown on Uighurs in Xinjiang, China.
February 2, 2019: Reuters • Xinjiang is a major part of China's Belt and Road infrastructure network but the region has faced attacks blamed on members of the Muslim ethnic Uighur minority. Beijing has responded with a security clampdown condemned by rights groups and Western governments. Frontier Services Group (FSG), a Hong Kong-listed company founded by Prince, said in a Chinese-language statement posted on its website on Jan. 22 that it had signed a deal to build a training centre in southern Xinjiang. Prince is deputy chairman, a minority shareholder and a board member of FSG, a security, logistics and insurance provider. Source Here

Watch this video.

Chinese authorities are using a 911 mobile app to carry out illegal mass surveillance and arbitrary detention of Muslims in China’s western Xinjiang region. Source Here
Makes you wonder, doesn't it? Aren't we condemning China for the camps, and yet the West is helping to build those camps? Must be a big mistake. We didn’t know what was happening. And Erik Prince swears he didn't know. Honestly. He's not lying. Cross my heart and hope to die. Pinky swear.
8200 leads to NSO and Carbyne. DarkMatter is in the UAE with NSA employees. The NSO hack was used to capture Khashoggi. Peter Thiel invested in Facebook, Facebook owns WhatsApp. Peter Thiel invested in Carbyne. Eric Prince works for and founded FSG, which built the Muslim reduction school. China is using similar tech to target Muslims and send them back to school. Carbyne 911 surveillance tech accesses your phone camera after you click on the link to give permission. So. Peter Thiel funds Carbyne. Eric Prince is working for the UAE developing security and the UAE ends up with Dark Matter, and then his company (FSG) is sold to China, and they build re-education centers, which uses technology like Carbyne, and that technology is being used in the USA.
Got it? Good. Because I'm seriously having a hard time keeping up with the behind the scene footage of this LARP.
Link Previously Provided • 1,400 people worldwide, including Indian lawyers, rights activists and journalist, were targets of an online spying campaign that used highly sophisticated spyware developed by an Israeli firm via WhatsApp. WhatsApp is at the centre of a global storm over privacy after it was revealed that at least 17 Indians and about 1,400 people worldwide had their phones breached through the social media app. Their privacy was compromised by surveillance technology so invasive that could read and transmit the entire contents of a phone as well as operate its camera.
WhatsApp, Doc, I think I need an appointment because I'm suffering from Mass Psychogenic Illness from too much Doomscrolling.
Do you want to get deeper? I mean really deep? Yes? Ok. Let's jump into the deep.
October 18, 2019: - How a WhatsApp Tax Launched Massive Anti-Government Protests in Lebanon.
What a crazy New Normal World Order we live in. What are the odds that we have a WhatsApp hack tax protest and we also have a WhatsApp hack that uses your phone camera, while also using similar tech in the USA and China. That's inconceivable! That's incredible! Someone call the press and let them know about this! Uhm. Wait. Better not. You might get Khashoggid.
So Eric Prince is involved. Peter Thiel is involved. WhatsApp is owned by Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg owns Facebook, and Peter Thiel helped Facebook grow. And then there was this.
March 28, 2018: Daily Mail • Employee of Peter Thiel's company Palantir helped Cambridge Analytica harvest the data of millions of the Facebook users. Alfredas Chmieliauskas is said to have suggested to Cambridge Analytica that it create a personality quiz smartphone app to get access to networks of Facebook users. The Times report also claims that Sophie Schmidt - the daughter former Google executive Eric Schmidt - had urged Cambridge Analytica to work with Palantir. Source Here
At this point, I think I'm going to need to buy a whole lot of tacks and string and make pciture maps on my walls. If we're all living in a Truman Surveillance Show, might as well play the part of the New Normal crazy conspiracy theorist, right?
January 17, 2017: The Intercept According to New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, in December Prince attended the annual “Villains and Heroes” costume ball hosted by Mercer. Dowd wrote that Palantir founder Peter Thiel showed her “a picture on his phone of him posing with Erik Prince, who founded the private military company Blackwater, and Mr. Trump — who had no costume — but joke[d] that it was ‘N.S.F.I.’ (Not Safe for the Internet).”
No. Sanity. Fracking. Involved. Is more like it. This insanity can't pass for sanity, can it? And yet they label us crazy when we start to find the big picture, even if we aren't entirely sure what the big picture means.
The Intercpt Continued: In July, Prince told Trump’s senior adviser and white supremacist Steve Bannon, at the time head of Breitbart News, that the Trump administration should recreate a version of the Phoenix Program, the CIA assassination ring that operated during the Vietnam War, to fight ISIS. Such a program, Prince said, could kill or capture “the funders of Islamic terror and that would even be the wealthy radical Islamist billionaires funding it from the Middle East, and any of the other illicit activities they’re in.” Prince also said that Trump would be the best force to confront “Islamic fascism.” “As for the world looking to the United States for leadership, unfortunately, I think they’re going to have to wait till January and hope Mr. Trump is elected because, clearly, our generals don’t have a stomach for a fight,” Prince said. “Our president doesn’t have a stomach for a fight and the terrorists, the fascists, are winning.” Source Here
Sounds good, right? Kill people who kill people and maybe someday we won't have people getting killed. Killer idea! HEWDSHAWT! Grab your BFG and let's go BGH. It's a date!
But then why are these cell phone surveillance hacks companies being constantly linked with their names, and those hacks are being used to target journalists and human rights activists?
It's a small New Normal World Order after all. And it's getting smaller everyday. No worries though, Keep Calm and Carry On, We're All In This Together, and You're Either With Us Or Against Us. It's all good. That kind of thing could never happen here.

Cover Art
Teaser: Where Frances and her friends plan to take Freeburg and run into immediate complications involving her bullies.
Story Summary: After years of beatings and neglect from her parents, 13-year old Frances was summoned with her entire class to the fantastical world of Durannon to fight the monsters invading the human kingdoms and defeat the "Demon King." If she succeeds, she might have the home she never had. But if she can't overcome the trauma and self-loathing inflicted on her by her abusive parents, Frances will die, and be summoned back to the home she escaped, on the day that she left.
[The Beginning] [<=Chapter 49] [Chapter Index and Blurb] [Chapter 51=>]
[Map of Durannon]
This chapter was pre-read by u/totallyundescript.
Birds-eye view of Freeburg Fortress.
The next morning, Igraine assembled Frances, Martin, Elizabeth, and the forty-five Otherworlders that were to be part of their force on a field beside their camp. There, Igraine introduced Frances and Martin, informed the gathering that they were in command, and then left to arrange her own forces.
This left, forty-five pairs of eyes settling on Frances and Martin, only one pair of which—Elizabeth’s—was not judging.
Frances knew she was going to be tempted to freeze, and so before they had assembled, had discussed the situation with her friends, and proposed a solution.
Except, it got shot down.
Martin had looked extremely perplexed. “You want me to explain that to them?”
“I might fumble over my own tongue, Martin. You are a knight, commanding, shining example of chivalry—”
“No. You need to talk to them, Frances. If you don’t, they will have no confidence in your abilities, and that will become a problem in battle.” He smiled and pointed at Frances. “Besides, your approach is sound, you just need to explain it.”
Elizabeth, arms crossed, mirrored Martin’s nod. “They also don’t know you, Frances. Well, know-know you. They’ll be quiet for the moment. You have nothing to be afraid of.”
Unable to convince her friends this was a bad idea, Frances had swallowed, and now, raised her chin as high as she could, and coughed.
“Hello everybody. We are going to divide everybody into four squads, with the remaining six to stay with me as a reserve. To do that, I am going to assess your skills and abilities with the help of Sir Martin, and Elizabeth, whose abilities I am familiar with thanks to the previous missions.”
Hoping she didn’t sound too mechanic in her explanation, but seeing nobody interject, Frances continued.
“Melee specialists are to follow Elizabeth and Martin. As for the mages, I will assess your magical ability, so stay with me please.”
And, like that, the classmates split, about thirty of them following Elizabeth and Martin, and the last fifteen following Frances.
That last fifteen included Leila, who was glaring daggers at Frances, and Jessica, who had schooled her expression into an aloof grimace.
Frances forced herself to ignore the both of them.
“Right if you could all take a seat. I would like to see you try to break several targets I’m going to set up.”
Pointing her wand to a spot about a hundred yards away, Frances sang a spell.
Five mounds of earth rose. Each was larger than the next. The smallest was as high as a person. The largest was about the size of four carts.
When she was done, Frances turned back to the group.
“I’ll call on you one by one, at which are going to blast every mound to smithereens with your strongest spell, as fast as you can.” She smiled, in what she hoped was a confident manner, and pulled out a notebook and stick of charcoal. “Who would like to go first?”
The girls and boys in front of her exchanged looks. They didn’t whisper at each other, but Frances could see the wordless language of glances, flinches and gestures that communicated dare, question, and suspicion.
“Um, I’ll go.”
The group parted to let a lanky Asian teen holding a staff walk forward. He wore brown robes and his eyes were looking up, even though his head was bowed.
Frances however, recognized him, and she blinked.
Jim scratched the back of his head. “Hey, Frances. It’s been a while.”
Frances nodded and smiled. Jim wasn’t exactly a friend of hers, more of an acquaintance. They sometimes compared notes and homework and would work together if there were any group projects. Sometimes, he’d let her play with his handheld game console. Most importantly, he hadn’t asked any uncomfortable questions.
“Which target would you like to start with first, Jim?”
Jim indicated the mid-sized target, and after pointing with his staff, and crying out a word of power, a bolt of purple magic slammed into the mound of earth. But while dirt went flying, most of the mound was still there.
He groaned, his brown eyes downcast. “Uhh I can do better, and I know other spells. I’m quite good at scrying.”
Frances nodded, examining the mound. It wasn’t a particularly good result, and Jim seemed to know it. However…
“I would love to ask you about your other spells Jim, and about my plan to take Freeburg. I remember you were quite a game and history nerd, right? You might have some insights.”
Jim blinked. “Oh. Um, thanks. It’s good to see you, Frances.”
“You too. Uh, do you mind sitting over there?”
After Jim took a seat away from the main group, a few more people raised their hands. After resetting the targets first, Frances picked the Otherwolder mages one by one, assessed them, took their names and noted down the results.
Slowly, they wound down the list with Frances recalling a few familiar faces and names. Once in a while, especially for those who could only disperse the smaller mounds, Frances documented things they specialized in. Healing, mists, and other details that Frances carefully documented. All the while, her classmates watched her, muttering or whispering to each other under their breath.
That changed after Nicole stepped up to do her test. Before Frances could ask her to choose a target, she quipped:
“So what’s the point of all of this, Frances? I mean aren’t we supposed to be planning to retake Freeburg?”
Taking in Nicole’s tone and her hands on her hips, Frances’s small smile vanished. “I am making a plan, and to do so I need to know what magic you are all good at.”
Nicole groaned, running a hand through her hair, not that there was much of it. Hers was cut so short her ears weren’t even covered. “You’re making a plan? Don’t you think you ought to consult with all of your classmates? Or I dunno, tell us what you’re going to try?”
There were several ways Frances knew she could answer Nicole, but none of them seemed perfect. On one hand, she could explain her thought process, but she hesitated, unsure if it would be a good idea to air her entire plan before she had actually decided to commit to it. Yet, neither did she feel confident in just telling Nicole to sit down.
One thing was for sure, she did not want to consult with all of her classmates. That didn’t seem what Edana, General Forowena, or even General Darius would do.
Then again… Lady Igraine hadn’t told her classmates that they were only part of the attacking force.
She closed her notebook. “We’re part of two attacking groups, the one that is going to attack Freeburg from the southern gate. I plan for the mages will blast a hole in the walls and pin the defends down whilst our fighters breach them. But I need to determine what are our best strengths first. I promise that I’ll present the complete plan to you all when I’m ready.”
Nicole’s brow was furrowed, but her eyes were now looking up towards the distant Freeburg rather than glaring at Frances.
“Alright. But I’ll hold you to that.” She gestured to the second-largest target and after an aria that took several seconds, she unleashed a bolt of force that blasted the target apart.
Frances nodded, somewhat impressed, and made her notes. She continued to call more of her classmates up until she got to—
Her former bully stood up, and stomped towards Frances, but instead of stopping at a respectable distance, Leila kept marching on.
Frances’s fist clenched around her wand as her broad-shouldered came to a stop, her nose mere inches from her face.
Leila sneered. “Sup.”
Frances stepped back and gestured to the targets. “Please pick a target—”
She was cut off by Leila crying out a word of power. The fireball she summoned whooshed over Frances’s shoulder and obliterated the middle target.
With the heat of the spell still warming her cheeks, Frances had to bite down the wellspring of anger that had once again been reignited.
“There. How did I do? Commandah?”
Leila’s lilting tone and taunting words broke Frances’s stoic mask. Scowling at her former bully, Frances hissed, “Very well. However, you showed a total disregard for safety.”
Smiling smugly, Leila cooed, “Aw, sorry, commander,” and sauntered off to join the others.
It took all her willpower to rip her eyes away from Leila to glare at the last person she had to assess.
The statuesque blonde stood up and walked over, but unlike her friend, she didn’t violate Frances’s personal space.
Her crossed arms and narrowed eyes, however, were not giving Frances a comforting feeling. But she didn’t seem to be hostile at first. She demolished the second-largest target without incident, and after that, informed Frances that she was most familiar with earth spells.
Then she said, in her haughty tone, “May I ask you a few questions, Fo—Frances?”
Every instinct on guard, but because she had no reason to deny the request, Frances gave a short nod.
Jessica smiled, but to Frances,, it looked like a shark’s bloodthirsty grin. “So like, why did Lady Igraine assign you to be our commander? I mean, yeah, you did a few good missions, but it’s not like you did anything special.”
The words stung, and old, dark thoughts whispered in the background as Frances tried to think of an answer.
“Lady Igraine trusts me as do other members of the War Council including Earl Forowena and my master, Edana. If you have questions as to why I was appointed, please talk to them.”
“But you have no command experience?”
“No.” Frances crossed her arms. “Where are you going with this line of questioning, Jessica?”
“Jeez. Why so uptight? I bet your parents must have hated having you around the house.”
Frances froze, the whispers in her head crying out:
Worthless waste of space.
Whiny crybaby twerp.
Stupid sister.
Foul Frances
Jessica rolled her eyes. “Oi, what’s wrong? Come on don’t tell me your parents actually hit you as a kid.”
Ivy’s Sting hummed in her hand and this time, she wasn’t holding Frances back. Except, both knew that if Frances blasted her bullies right now, she’d get in trouble. She had to be smarter about this, use what she had.
Hold on, she was their commander...
“That’s it. Jessica, Leila, you’re assigned to the mess tent!”
Jessica blinked and Leila leapt to her feet. “Excuse me?” the blonde spat.
Even as spittle shot past her cheek, Frances retorted, “You heard me! Report to the mess tent and speak to the mess captain! Tell them that your commander has assigned you to wash dishes, and carry out menial tasks alike, and don’t you dare think about shirking this. I will be checking with the cooks tonight!”
Leila spluttered, “For what reason—”
“Insubordination. Endangering your commanding officer. Challenging your commanding officer’s authority. Now carry those orders out or I will report to Lady Igraine that you are disobeying my commands.”
“You can’t do this—”
“Oh I definitely can. I don’t want to, but your behaviour leaves me no choice,” Frances hissed. All the while, her wand trembled in her hand ready for a challenge.
Leila and Jessica, shaking with fury, stormed off in the direction of the mess tent, leaving whispering, awestruck teenagers. They were so infuriated they paid no attention to the very sweaty Elizabeth and Martin who stared at the pair’s departure.
“So… didn’t go quite to plan?” Martin asked.
Frances shook her head. “No. But no matter. I’ve made it clear as I can to them that they have to respect me.” Rubbing her hands, she turned back to her classmates. “Sorry everybody, I will… I will speak to those who I told I promised to speak with. Um, who was first?”
After assessing the Otherworlders and conferring to discuss the results, the three friends enjoyed a hearty meal and washed up for the evening.
There was, of course, no way to actually have a shower, but some nearby streams had been designated for bathing. They were cold, but none of the friends were complaining about the water temperature after a long day of labour.
Martin found his two friends after he’d finished, sitting on the grass in casual dresses, with Frances standing behind Elizabeth, comb in hand. A roaring campfire had been set, with a kettle filled with what seemed to be Hearthsange sitting to one side, along with some yams.
“Evening snack?” Martin asked.
Straining at a particularly annoying knot in her friend’s black hair, Frances muttered, “Yup. Ugh, I wish we had some conditioner and shampoo.”
“Oh God I know right? I think I miss that the most. And hot showers, flushing toilets being commonplace, and toilet paper. Don’t get me wrong, using leaves or old rags is better than nothing, but they’re nowhere near as comfortable.”
Martin pinched himself. “You used paper. Expensive paper, to wipe yourselves after going to the toilet?”
Elizabeth frowned, making a face. Frances thought for a moment, before her lips formed an “O.” “Paper is much cheaper where we come from, Martin, and toilet paper, isn’t the same as writing paper.”
“Ah, that explains it.” Martin dug into his pack, pulling out a small wooden box. “Want some chocolate?”
Frances and Elizabeth nodded eagerly, and so Martin shared his sweets and the three just started to chat, talking about nothing really, but anything.
At least, until a hesitant voice called out.
“Um, may I join you?” Jim asked stepping into the fire’s glow. “I have some fruit if you’d like some.”
“Of course. We have some yams and Hearthsange. They’re not smores, but it should taste good.” Taking in Martin’s confused look, Frances added, “Smores are made by putting chocolate and marshmallows—a kind of fluffy sweet—between two crackers.”
“Oh, I miss those! My mom used to make them whenever we went out for barbeque. She’d get the cook on them just right!” Jim sighed and handed his fruits, crisp Dale apples, to the group. “That’s definitely the first thing I’m going to have when I get back.”
“You mean you aren’t going to go on the internet first, Jim?”
Frances turned to see Nicole strolling into the firelight. “Yo, Frances. Do you mind if I join?” She raised the bag over her shoulder. “I brought some scones.”
Although she was wondering where exactly were all these classmates coming from, Frances gave a short nod and was surprised when Nicole waltzed passed her and took a seat right next to Jim.
“Hey Nicole—” Jim fell into a splutter as the taller girl kissed his cheek and leaned against his shoulder.
“Not too uncomfortable are you? Good, stay there.” She said several words of power and levitated the scones by the fire to warm them up.
Frances stared at the pair, even as she freed her comb from Elizabeth’s now presentable hair and took a seat next to the fire. Shy, nerdy Jim and brusque, tomboyish Nicole, were dating? Jim was bullied by Jessica and Leila quite frequently, and wasn’t Nicole Jessica’s and Leila’s friend?
Yet, Elizabeth only smirked at the sight. “About time. When did you ask Jim out?”
Nicole yawned, and closed her eyes, a content smile spreading on her face. “Actually he asked me out.”
Stunned, Frances nearly dropped the kettle of Hearthsange she was pulling out of the fire. “Wait, Jim, Nicole’s Leila’s and Jessica’s friend. Why would you ask her out?” As the question left her lips she winced. She had not intended to ask in such a blunt fashion.
However, while Nicole’s eyes opened, she didn’t move from where she lay against Jim. “Oh… that. Yeah, no. I’m not Jessica and Leila’s friend anymore. Do I prefer nothing bad happens to them? Oh yeah. We Otherworlders need to look out for each other, but no, we’re not friends anymore.”
Jim nodded, scratching the back of his head. “I probably would still have a hopeless crush on you, though.”
Nicole snorted. “You flatterer. I wonder how surprised our teachers are going to be when we go back and we’re all friendly with one another.”
“They’d probably be more surprised as to why two thirteen-year-olds are that friendly with one another. You know we revert to the ages we leave when we go home, right?” Elizabeth asked.
That got a chuckle out of everybody, which allowed Frances to distribute the snacks. The conversation then turned to the other things they all missed about Earth with Martin asking polite questions about what they meant.
Yet, while the knight was entranced with the stories and technology of her classmates, Frances noticed herself speaking less and less. There was a cold weight in her chest that dragged her shoulders down and shivered her fingers, even though they were wrapped around a steaming mug.
The weight—no, the pain was becoming unbearable, as the conversation returned to the topic of what was the first thing they were going to do when they got back to Earth. Elizabeth was telling Nicole of how she was missing going to church. As her friend finished her story, Frances suddenly realized why she was feeling this way.
But it was too late to stop Jim from asking, “Hey, Frances, what’s the first thing you’re going to do when you get back by the way?”
The question sounded like it was coming through a tunnel and Frances felt herself fall through the ground, even though she was sitting perfectly still.
The truth was, she missed Earth. She missed the skyscrapers of the city, the growl of car engines, the hustle and bustle of people in the supermarkets. She wanted to roam in sturdy, air-conditioned concrete and plaster buildings once again, instead of drafty castles. She yearned for a peaceful, sometimes directionless, always busy world without war.
But she couldn’t. Everybody else but she could return to Earth, to… to home. With all those fond memories, came nightmares that underlined her need to stay in Durannon. What she’d do if she died and returned to Earth was not a wishlist. It was a list of steps that she and Edana had worked out to preserve her life. It was a last resort plan based on everything they knew about the summoning system and the modern world.
Run from home and tell my teachers about what my parents were doing to me. If they don’t believe me, run away, draw the attention of the authorities, or get somewhere where you can make a living. Steal or beg the gold from your classmates that did succeed if necessary to do so.
That was the plan, a simple, vague plan. She had no luxury to think about what she wanted to do if she was sent home because if she did…
Gentle hands were pulling her up onto her feet, but she barely noticed. She could already hear her mother screaming at her. See her hitting her.
Hold on, her mother didn’t speak in a kind tone to her. She wouldn’t say, “Frances, it’s alright. You’re not on Earth.”
Blinking, Frances found herself held up by Elizabeth, her friend’s features mere inches away. Behind her, were Martin, looking concerned, and a perplexed Nicole and Jim.
Seeing the looks of her classmates Frances groaned, “I did it again didn’t I?”
“Yes, but don’t worry about that. Why don’t we sit down in your tent for a bit?” Elizabeth smiled. “It’s been a long day, you’re tired.”
Sighing, Frances allowed her friend to lead her away into the privacy of her tent. Just before she left, she looked up to examine Nicole and Jim’s expressions.
“Frances, are you alright? Is there anything we can do to help?” Jim asked, standing to his feet.
Frances tried to form words, but she didn’t know what to say. She knew what she felt, but it see-sawed between anger and sorrow.
“There’s nothing you can do, Jim. Not right now. Just… respect her privacy, don’t mention this to anybody, and that’ll be enough,” Martin gave Frances a sympathetic look. “Go. I won’t tell them. I know what to say.”
Her tongue was numb, but she managed to force herself to give Martin a grateful nod and smile, before letting Elizabeth half-drag, half-carry her back to her tent.
Author’s Note: So normally I recommend you check out TalesByOpheliaCyanide's Geela, but this time I'm recommending her shorter, but highly touching work Let the Little Children Come to Me. Which is also about an abused child. Just read it and weep.
For today's update question: I have a thing for ships. Like RMS Titanic, HMS Warspite, Queen Mary, Aquitania... yeah I have a thing for ships and liners and warships. What's your favorite ship in real life and fiction? I have so many I can't choose. Oh and I'm including Spaceships and airships for this question. Saying NCC 1701 Enterprise (Refit) is pretty is tots cool... mostly because I dig that ship so hard.
To further discuss the update of the week, join the discord server :) where we hang out and people interrogate me on my story.

[13:00] Shevla: Stitch Fix (SFIX)
Telsey Advisory Group raises their SFIX tgt to $29 from $20. Analyst Dana Telsey said, "A strong balance sheet means the company can continue to self-fund growth while managing through a highly uncertain environment. In addition, the current disruption may accelerate the shift to online sales and we see the potential for the company's flexible model (no bricks-and-mortar stores, work-from-home stylist team) to allow it to continue to take share. Therefore, despite a moderated sales outlook for the year and the capacity constraints brought about by COVID, we continue to see growth potential within the company's personalization model, while the direct buy capabilities can increase share of wallet. Therefore, we maintain our Outperform rating. With some improved visibility to the contours of a recovery from COVID, we are raising our price target to $29 from $20. Our price target assumes a 1.21x multiple on our two-year forward revenue estimate, which compares to the historical average one-year forward multiple of 1.33x."
[13:01] Shevla: Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS)
Telsey Advisory Group raises their DKS tgt to $49 from $43. Analyst Joseph Feldman said, "Dick's Sporting Goods had a tough 1Q20, with EPS of ($1.71), on a comp of (29.5%) and operating margin compression of ~1,800 bps to (14.0%). However, we were impressed by the pace of recovery in May, with the comp only down 4.0% YoY, driven by good performance in reopened stores and strength in e-commerce (up 250%). Curbside pickup was a meaningful contributor, representing 40% of online sales in 1Q20. In addition, Dick's is benefiting from a diversified product mix and strong consumer demand in a variety of categories, including fitness, outdoor, running, golfing, biking, and boating. The US government stimulus checks are likely helping, as is the case with most retailers. Team sports remains an area of concern, given uncertainty around the restart of youth leagues and school sports. However, Dick's is seeing positive results in recently reopened markets, particularly in baseball. All in, given the better-than-expected sales recovery in May, we are raising our EPS and comp targets for the remainder of 2020 and 2021."
[13:02] Shevla: RH (RH) Not Robinhood you degenerate autists
Telsey Advisory Group raises their RH tgt to $255 from $110. Analyst Cristina Fernndez commented, "After disclosing on its last earnings call that sales trends from March 18 (once stores closed) thru March 30 were running down 43%, we believe RH's business significantly improved in April and May as affluent consumers looked to upgrade their homes after an initial stock-up period for essentials. Historically, RH sales have been directionally correlated with the stock market, which has rebounded strongly since bottoming in late March and is now just down 5% YTD. RH also stands to benefit from a sizable digital business, which we estimate represented ~40% of its sales in 2019 and the rollout of virtual design consultations where customers work with an RH interior designer without visiting a store. Similar to Williams-Sonoma, RH should have seen strength in a number of categories in recent weeks including baby/teen, outdoor, and upholstery. Our real estate contacts have also indicated that business has been good at RH stores that reopened in May, which total ~50% of the store base...Overall, we are incrementally more positive on RH and believe the company can perform well in the current environment given: 1) a large digital business; 2) increased demand for home furnishings as consumers spend more time at home; and 3) an affluent consumer that is in relatively better shape given stock market gains and less job losses, with greater ability to work from home. "
[13:03] Shevla: Haemonetics (HAE)

Under the terms of the agreement, upon closing, Haemonetics will retain all intellectual property rights to its proprietary blood filters currently manufactured at its Fajardo facility, while GVS will obtain certain operating assets, including manufacturing equipment and inventory and a sublease to the facility.
[13:06] Shevla: Canada Goose (GOOS)
Reports Q4 (Mar) loss of CAD0.12 per share, in-line with the S&P Capital IQ Consensus of (CAD0.12); revenues fell 9.8% yeayear to CAD140.9 mln vs the CAD130.37 mln S&P Capital IQ Consensus.
The negative financial impacts of COVID-19 will be more pronounced in the first quarter ending June 28, 2020, with a negligible level of revenue expected. The first quarter is historically the smallest in the fiscal year, representing 7.4% of annual sales in fiscal 2020.
Throughout the first seven weeks of the first quarter of fiscal 2021, 75% or 15 of 20 retail stores in the DTC channel were temporarily closed. 2 of the 5 stores that were open during this period, both in Hong Kong, have been severely impacted by restrictions on inbound tourism. Our store in Paris re-opened on May 20, followed by Milan on May 29 and Montreal on June 2. Further openings are being evaluated on a staged region-by-region basis, based on regulatory guidelines and supporting traffic trends as well as the health and safety of employees and guests.
While e-commerce is operational in all markets and digital engagement is strong, this off-season period is a low point for consumer purchasing online. In the wholesale channel, shipments to partners have been largely shutoff since March due to disruptions from retail store closures.
Given prevailing global uncertainties, including the evolution of ongoing outbreaks, the duration of retail store closures, the pace of retail normalization following re-openings and the impact of economic developments and travel restrictions on consumer discretionary spending, all of which are unknown, the Company is not providing an outlook for fiscal 2021.

Reports Q3 (Apr) earnings of $0.83 per share, excluding non-recurring items, $0.29 better than the S&P Capital IQ Consensus of $0.54; revenues rose 14.6% yeayear to $2.24 bln vs the $2.26 bln S&P Capital IQ Consensus.
In the third quarter of fiscal 2020, Campbell achieved $30 million in savings under its multi-year cost savings program, inclusive of Snyder's-Lance synergies, bringing total program-to-date savings to $680 million. Year-to-date savings were $120 million through the first nine months of fiscal 2020. As previously announced, the company expects to deliver cumulative annualized savings of $850 million by the end of fiscal 2022.

B. Riley FBR upgrades MCHP to Buy from Neutral and raises their tgt to $125 from $85. Analyst Craig Ellis said, "Tuesday 6/2 AMC, MCHP raised F1Q21's guide $40M (+300 bps)/$0.09 ahead of competitor conference appearances, flagging better-than-feared supply chain dynamics and less bad auto cancellations and pushouts. Shares rose ~5%. Improvement versus relatively dour early quarter expectations helps remove a dark cloud of uncertainty, and we believe the ~43% of sales in Auto and Industrial has now stabilized, with the next inflection positive. Beyond that, we believe data points in Compute/Data Center, Comms, and Mil/Aero have improved since MCHP last reported, so ~44% of sales should have stronger momentum. Overall, we believe this significantly enhances confidence in an F1Q21 revenue bottom and F2Q21 Q/Q growth, meaning sales are troughing with GM and OM within ~200 and 300 bps of 63.0% and 40.0% targets, respectively which we suspect could be attained on a quarterly basis in FY22. So, with a 5-6% increase in FY21&22 EPS and a FY22 target P/E hike to 19.0x, our price target jumps from $85 to $125, and the rating lifts from Neutral back to Buy. We acknowledge shares have already moved sharply from March lows with the sector's upswing, but a return to growth, GM and OM expansion toward 65%/45% LT, and debt paydown toward 3.0x EBITDA are catalysts for another leg higher to and through our PT on a 12-month basis. Valuation at 16.7x, 14.9x, and 13.3x or FY21-23 EPS, vs. a T-7-year 16.1x F12M average."

Dunkin' U.S. comparable store sales have been improving week-over-week during the second quarter. As of the week ended May 23, 2020, quarter-to-date comparable store sales declines were ~23% for open stores. During the week ended May 23, 2020, comparable store sales declined 15% for open stores, representing a significant sequential improvement over the decline of 25% for the week ended April 25, 2020, as reported on the Company's first quarter earnings call on April 30, 2020.
Improved comparable store sales in the first 8 weeks of the second quarter has primarily been driven by the following three factors: Strong sales at drive-thru locations; Double-digit comparable store sales growth versus the prior year during the 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. time period, driven by higher ticket orders; and Increased sales through the Dunkin' app, delivery, and curbside; digital adoption has increased weekly as compelling local and national offers entice guests to join, reactivate, and use DD Perks to make their transactions. Quarter-to-date comparable store sales ending May 23, 2020 would have been ~500 basis points lower if temporarily closed restaurants were included. They would have been ~300 basis points lower for the week ending May 23, 2020 if temporarily closed restaurants were included.

2020.05.22 12:39 HimanshuJBista Lock-Down Essentials (A Mega Thread nobody asked for)

The ever increasing lock-down inflicted by COVID-19, is taking a toll mentally on all of us. The majority of us confine ourselves in our rooms, indulged in the lights of machines. However, at the end of the day, we find ourselves swapping between a couple of applications (YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit among others).
I've been trying to get the best out of the self-isolation period and this right here is the mega thread that I have created in order to help you guys with some of the "Lock-down Essentials". Please add anything you can to this thread.
Time Table: Most of our body clocks have gone out of control. We have become irregular with our eat and sleep schedule. Most people including myself have lost track of the date and I've personally become very careless with my eating patterns. The best way to keep yourself mentally sound is by organizing your day. Even if setting a time table seems over the top, I do not imply we create a strict military like schedule. Mentally setting a time to sleep, eat, rest and wake up could be a very good start. Cleaning the room, showering and working out are among the best practices you can regulate. A fresh body and a clean environment will allow you to embark on a journey of productivity.
Exercise: I play a ton of games and I always end up with a sore back & a heavy head. Working out in the morning and stretching your body when you could, can help with blood circulation. It also enhances mental capabilities and keeps the body tired enough so you could have a deep 6-8 hours of sleep. Here are some of the popular methods I can suggest you to try (Time can differ according to convenience):

Morning Workout Noon Stretching Evening Stretching
Push-ups, Crunches, Pull-ups Arm/Wrist/Hand stretches Arm/Wrist/Hand stretches
Skipping, Jogging, Walking Leg/Knee/Thigh stretches Leg/Knee/Thigh stretches
Yoga Neck/Back stretches Neck/Back stretches
Here is a list of some popular applications you can try for keeping track of your health vitals and working out (Applications are free and available on Android/IOS:
  1. C25K
  2. Daily Yoga
  3. Workout Trainer
  4. Nike Training Club (OP Recommendation)
Reading: Reading is a great way of relaxing mind and learning new things. No matter your preference, read a book. If you are an IOS user, there is an application called "Books" in the stock IOS. The IOS Book store features more than 100 free e-book titles and I highly recommend reading from their. For Android users there are no limitations of downloading and reading e-books using numerous free websites. Here are some popular links you can check out for finding and downloading e-books.

  2. Calm/Insight Timer - Install these applications for allowing yourself better sleep at night or to meditate. (Credit: u/laali-)
I get asked a lot of questions regarding things to do when stuck at home. Here are some of the things I do:
  1. Work from Home - I spend 2+ hours each day working to improve my company. I use a two monitor setup for work with a faint music playing in the background. I usually communicate with possible clients over phone and video.
  2. Game - I game almost everyday. It keeps me fresh and active. I am currently playing eFootball PES 2020 (A friend gifted it to me just before lock-down. Bless him) and Outer Worlds. I game on a PC.
  3. Music - My next door neighbor is an excellent guitar player. We meet in the evenings and jam to some of our favorite songs. I have a recording setup where I usually do covers and occasionally write my own songs. I have also been learning Harmonium. We currently have a guitar, a harmonium and a cajon at home which takes up a chunk of my time.
  4. Watch Parties - We started having watch parties on Discord. We watch movies, football matches (Bundesliga started yayyy), sing songs and more which is always a relief. To joke around and talk with friends is always amazing.
  5. Subscriptions - I currently use two subscription services - Netflix and Apple Music. I'm currently watching "WWII in Color".
  6. News - Watching some news with the old man is always nice.
This mega thread is a answer to what IN MY OPINION can be done in a lock-down. Some of the things you may agree to, some you may not. Let's hope we are cooperative and suggest each other positive things in every way possible rather than bringing each other down.
In times of turmoil, let's be with each other, let us share the best of us and allow each other to be the best version of ourselves. Specially with the politics going on, youths need to come together and look after one another.
I hope this thread has been helpful to you.

2020.05.18 15:14 billyman6675 WSUS + Azure Update Management = Happy Sys Admins

In the past installing updates for servers and clients in my organization just wasn't a thing. If you were lucky, the admin building a new server would install updates, IF you were lucky... In most cases the system was put into production with no updates and no plans to install updates in the future. This is obviously a terrible way to run your infrastructure. Those sys admins are no longer around and I decided to do something about it. I'm here to share what I've learned over the years in hopes that it may help my fellow system admins out in the wild. So let's get into it.

The problem:

Before I took any action I spent some time thinking about the problems a update solution needed to solve. For my organization and co-workers, reliability, ease of use, and scalability were the top items we needed to address.
Let's make a list of a few problems that we run into when we don't have a management solution so we know what needs to be solved.
To top this off, we don't have the staff to dedicate someone to review and test every update. So we need to automate this process as much as possible. Luckily our organization uses fairly standard applications on our non-critical clients and servers so the chance of something breaking is fairly low. But having the ability to recall an update will be critical in case something does go wrong.
Next there is the human problem. We have a number of staff that don't want to touch the systems running our critical applications because they fear it may break. An understandable concern but this is an excuse, if something is truly critical it needs to be updated to be protected and stable. The human problem is likely the hardest issue to solve. I recommend contacting the vendor of your critical software and getting information on their updates policy and a list of supported updates if available. Bring lots of ammunition to the table if you have to convince skeptics.
So we have a mix obstacles to deal with: technical, resource, and human. The challenges are stacking up so lets see what we can do about it.

The Tools:

I'm not going to get into the technical details in this post but if I get some free time I may post again explaining how to install and configure WSUS and Azure Update Management.
Windows Server Update Services (WSUS)
WSUS offers a lot, and it is included with a licensed Windows Server. If you haven't used WSUS before it can be confusing to use and maintain when first starting. Give it some time and practice and it will start come together. WSUS will give us a centralized console to approve updates, check update status on our clients and servers, recall updates, and set installation deadlines.
WSUS can act as a centralized repository where clients can download updates from your intranet instead saturating your internet pipe. If for any reason you didn't want this you can also have your clients download updates from Microsoft update instead of your local WSUS but still be able to manage what gets approved.
WSUS Automated Maintenance (WAM)
If you've used WSUS before you likely already know that it is always trying to kill itself. The built in maintenance tool in WSUS is not enough to keep it running smoothly, and before long it will be bloated and unresponsive. WAM is cheap, effective and simple to use. This is optional, you can get by without it, but after I started running this tool I've never had WSUS fail on me.
Azure Update Management
This is the newest tool in our arsenal. Update management is normally used for Azure hosted VMs but you can use it for on prem severs through a hybrid worker. Update Management uses agents, Automation Accounts, and Log Analytics to build the Update Management solution. With this we can manage installation schedules for our servers, reboot servers, check the update status of our systems, and run pre/post install scripts during a update deployment.
Pricing is next to nothing, you only pay for storage for the logs. We have over 175 servers reporting into Azure and we only consume around 2.2GB in logs which amounts to pennies (nickles, if pennies have been phased out of your country). Cost can be a reason to stay out of the cloud but it really won't be a limiting factor here.
In order to install the agent your servers need to be running at least PowerShell 4 (5.1 is the recommended version. Luckily I was already installing WMF 5.1 on all clients and servers during deployment. The Agent support Windows Server 2008 and up. MS says Windows Server 2008 and R2 will only support reporting status but I haven't had any issues deploying updates to 2008 machines.
Before I started using this, I had a PowerShell script that would connect to each system and used the PSWindowsUpdate module to initiate updates and provided a report on what was installed. This worked well but the Azure solution comes with more features and now I don't need to worry managing the script myself, plus no one else in the office had enough PS knowledge to learn how it worked and maintain it.
Group Policy
GP is used to configure Windows updates settings that compliment Azure update management and of course configure the client/server to point to WSUS with enable client side targeting enabled.
OMS Gateway / Azure Log Analytics Gateway
The OMS gateway, now rebranded as Azure Log Analytics Gateway acts as a proxy for your on prem servers so traffic to Azure can flow through a single server instead of opening all your servers to the internet. This is an optional component but I heavily recommend it rather than punching holes in your firewall for every agent. The gateway can be installed on a single server or multiple servers for load balancing/high availability. The gateway will also cache logs when Azure cannot be contacted.
By default the gateway denies requests to any URL, you will have to whitelist Azure URLs and the URL for your automation accounts in order for the gateway to work.
So we have our tools, each one is pretty good by themselves, but together we can control every aspect of the update process. Let's see how they work together.

The solution:

Using WSUS we are able to control the flow of updates to our servers and decide which ones we want to push. We don't have a strict update approval process, so you may need to have a more control approval process depending on your environment.
In our environment we have 2 main update groups and a 3rd for critical servers. Because we control the date and time updates are installed all updates get approved for all 3 groups at the same time, but each group is configured to install one week after each other. Group 1 receives the newest updates first, then a week later group 2 installs the same updates. Critical servers are scheduled on a quarterly basis. The week long gap gives us time to assess if any issues arise from the new updates. If an update does cause issues, we can mark it "approved for removal" and the system will simply remove it during the next update window.
With WSUS we have our update control and delivery mechanism. Now we need a way to actually install the updates. At a small scale you could use group policy for this but you won't get any kind of centralized reporting telling you if the update window was successful or not. You could take before and after reports from WSUS on a target machine but we're busy sys admins so we want something streamlined.
Enter Azure Update Management. Using this we can get a centralized view of all of our servers and their update status, providing a clearer picture than what WSUS can give us. We can also defined our deployment schedules and define parameters like:
During or after a deployment window we can review the status of the job. This updates in near real time as the job is running, and at the end of it provides a nice report of what went right or wrong during the maintenance window. It will include how many updates were attempted, how many succeeded, how many failed, and do its best to provide information on any errors that occurred.
If you decided to use WSUS to also download and distribute updates, your clients/servers will use your internal WSUS to download the update files rather than going out to Microsoft Update. This will not only speed up the process, but save you from downloading the same update files over the internet hundreds or even thousands of times.

When I get some time I'll try to make some smaller posts on how to actually configure these things and hopefully help you have an easier time than I did at first. For now here are some tips to help you get your update solution running smoothly:

Here is the TL/DR version:

I get asked a lot of questions regarding things to do when stuck at home. Here are some of the things I do:
  1. Work from Home - I spend 2+ hours each day working to improve my company. I use a two monitor setup for work with a faint music playing in the background. I usually communicate with possible clients over phone and video.
  2. Game - I game almost everyday. It keeps me fresh and active. I am currently playing eFootball PES 2020 (A friend gifted it to me just before lock-down. Bless him) and Outer Worlds. I game on a PC.
  3. Music - My next door neighbor is an excellent guitar player. We meet in the evenings and jam to some of our favorite songs. I have a recording setup where I usually do covers and occasionally write my own songs. I have also been learning Harmonium. We currently have a guitar, a harmonium and a cajon at home which takes up a chunk of my time.
  4. Watch Parties - We started having watch parties on Discord. We watch movies, football matches (Bundesliga started yayyy), sing songs and more which is always a relief. To joke around and talk with friends is always amazing.
  5. Subscriptions - I currently use two subscription services - Netflix and Apple Music. I'm currently watching "WWII in Color".
  6. News - Watching some news with the old man is always nice.
This mega thread is a answer to what IN MY OPINION can be done in a lock-down. Some of the things you may agree to, some you may not. Let's hope we are cooperative and suggest each other positive things in every way possible rather than bringing each other down.
In times of turmoil, let's be with each other, let us share the best of us and allow each other to be the best version of ourselves. Specially with the politics going on, youths need to come together and look after one another.
I hope this thread has been helpful to you.
Edit: Thank you for 100+ upvotes.

2020.05.10 16:24 Sdueq Recap and translation of the official Russian community podcast (May 8th)

I am writing only the information Nikita had said on the podcast. Apologies in advance for possible mistakes, for English is not my native language. Everything is written in order of appearing throughout the stream. I am trying to add key point in bold, but there is additional info in translations. And I am certain there's going to be someone in the comments who will recap my recap, haha.
- New EFT sale commemorating Victory day (May 9th)
- Recent technical patch containts stuff for back-end.
There is mostly stuff for back-end. When there is some sort of overload of back-end the game doesn't feel well - you can't even exit the raid and all sorts of bullcrap is happening. So we added more logs, more debugging info and many little techincal bits and pieces.
- BSG team had a brief excercise in fast patch deploy and will strive to be faster in the future
We wrote it's gonna be 3 hours, but in fact it was 1,5 hours. So we want to be faster in that regard. Some people think the game is being patched magically by itself. There are times when we do something and it takes a long time. One time we were patching for about 6 hours, it's was very long. So we'll try to train ourself to deploy faster.
- Nikita is slowly getting mad in quarantine, so he wears a plate carrier all day long to lose some weight.
- Most of BSG team is working from home.
- BSG is currently testing and working on 12.6. BSG is delaying the patch because they are patching possible exploits that can appear in the new flea market system.
I am already recieving messages with potential exploits that people can try to use. See, here's the deal! We are making a game, all we want to do is to make the game. We don't frickin' need to "close the holes", fight with cheaters and so on. We are wasting a ton of time on this. Sure, you can say "UgH, tHeSe ArE mOdErN oNlInE gAmEs, ThEy MuSt HaVe PrOtEcTiOn FrOm ChEaTeRs" and you'll be right. But not to the point of allotting to it a third of all working time or even more.
Instead of making a functional system we must empirically and practically seek out all exploits by ourselves and with the help of the players and patch them. And we still won't patch them all. But you know what would happen when someone will find the exploit? They are going to blame us and say that we are lazy pieces of shit, that we do nothing.
In fact, right now we are delaying 12.6 because we are closing potential exploits in the new system. (Update regarding the delay at the end of the translation)
- Pre-wipe events are going to be announced right before the wipe.
- Renewed Customs is not going to be added in 12.6
- BSG banned 1500 cheaters yesterday (May 7th)
- BSG is actively working on cheater protection together with BattleEye.
We are working with BattleEye and making our own little subsystems that are designed to insure BattleEye is working properly. Right now everything that I recieve from acqueintances regarding cheaters, like "check this guy and that guy and those", I send to BattleEye and they say "Oh, they are already banned" or "They are in the banwave list". And it's very often that people ask to check those who are either already banned or in the little incoming banwave.
BattleEye has its own internal system and strategy that they don't even talk to us in detail. There are times when the new cheat appears, but BattleEye doesn't act right away. It "marinates" the cheaters and collects the list of them to later ban them all in one banwave. Instant bans are implemented for some cheats, for others they are not implemented. BattleEye is mostly working by itself. We can send them videos with cheaters from the forums and information regarding them, that's it.
Some people think that we ban people when we watch videos. This is false. We send videos and Player IDs to BattleEye's special team and then they identify and analyze them.
- BSG is working on traffic encryption
Some cheats are using alternative environment to analyze the information. For those kinds of cheats traffic needs to be encrypted. We are working on it. Not many game developers practice it. So we've decided to do it and we've been working on it for the past month. It's a serious thing and it heavily affects CPU, so we are trying to optimise it so that the client and the decoder won't go nuts.
- Most of the cheats on the Internet don't work
To those who are sceptical about anticheat's capabilty - you can search working hacks yourself. *everyone chuckles*
Oh, I'm not saying that you need to test them, just search for sites that say they are working.
95% of all sites that you'll see have hacks that don't work at all, even if they say otherwise.
- There's a person on Youtube that baits people into buying outdated hacks by buying channels and streaming old cheating footage. BSG is not happy about it
There's a new thing that's been going on recently. There's a Youtube channel with a stream going on. Big red LIVE in the corner, 16k botted viewers, all that stuff. It's a prerecorded video. The guy buys channels with 500-600 subscribers and streams it on purpose. And he actually sells nothing, no cheats. He even wrote "Why are you striking my videos, why ban me? I am not doing something bad, I am actually helping you! I don't sell cheats, really. You get the money and the cheater is punished!" That's insane. We've already banned thousands of those videos. We have the legal department that quickly sends info to Youtube.
Buddy, if you are watching this - please stop wasting your and everyone's time. The thing you are doing is not nice.
- New economy is going to deal with resellers and add a new layer towards a greater future goal
Right now everything is out of stock because of resellers. When reselling disappears there's going to be much more equipment for sale. If we take 10 players that actively play EFT and use flea market 8 of them buy the stock and immediately sell it, they don't even need it. But they know they'll gain extra 70 RUB from each bullet.
First, right now this situation is nonexistent. You'll need to craft the ammo, put it on flea market and it's much harder than it looks. With the added limit to buying per restock everything is going to be okay.
Second, we'll be looking into it all, how it's going to play out. If there's going to be some super deficit we'll try to regulate it.
Third, we are gradually moving on to the automatically regulated economy. I've been talking about it many times. Traders are going to be deciding what to do by themselves. If they see that the product is being sold out they'll increase the prices. If the product is being sold out regularly they'll decrease the amount you can buy per restock or even stop selling the product at all.
It's a vurtual in-game economy regulated by trader "pseudo people". Anything can happen. A number of items can disapper due to unforseen outocomes, events and the economy's unpredictability.
- New iterations of economy are designed to slow down the accumulation of top tier loot
It's a new reality that you need to deal with. We don't want to create a refined system in which "these bullets cost this much, those cost that much, I know I'm going to buy that item for that much, so on and so on". It's not interesting. Especially regarding top-tier loot like armor and ammo. Our mission is to slow down and make it harder to obtain high level stuff. With every new wipe we are trying to make in-game cycle more organic and smooth.
- 12.6 is going to be a special patch that will change how the game is played
12.6 is very important and not like the past ones. There is a bunch of new systems implemented like overweight, fatigue, trading of crafted and found in raid items. And it's a clear representation of your work. A player would be able to craft items in the hideout and contribute to the system. A real supplier and not just a reseller.
- Nikita dislikes people who try to get rich in a short amount of time after wipe.
The economical system is pretty balanced, but because of certain people that are used to playing EFT differently and gaining advantage by using legit and prohibited methods, it's all coming apart. We don't want to see people racing each other for high value loot to become rich in a short amount of time. It's not right!
You can say that it's life, that it happens. Damn, in our situation it's not the concept and gameplay that we wanted to implement. We want to make it harder, more complex. We want you, the player, to decide.
- Nikita wants each player to have a certain role in the game and not become the jack of all trades.
We don't want you to become the master of all skills, super trader, super killer, a know it all. When I was designing the game I had vision in mind that each player going through the game cycle would have his own place in it. Like "I haven't completed all quests but I've become a pro at certain skills". The limitations are designed to not let people become superheroes, like they are used to in all games. People must find their calling, just like in real life.
- To add more to the new found in raid only flea market, BSG will reduce the amount of items traders sell.
Why and how from the point of playable realism there must exist a rule "I must be able to find every loot in raid" ?
First, you need to level up the traders, to spend your time and resources on them.
Second, 75% of all loot is spawned in any way.
And here's the thing we'll be implementing. Almost all loot in 12.6 is going to be spawnable on locations and AI, it won't be sold. There are going to be new gear elements that will spawn on scavs, raiders and guards.
- Nikita is not in a hurry with adding new content, trying to implement it gradually
We are trying to "smear" added content. There are lots of planned top tier armor, but from time to time I just add a new rig, new backpack. For example, there is going to be a backpack that has about the same amount of slots as Berkut, but it looks cooler in black camo. It looks cool, but you can't buy it, just find on a scav.
- New AI-driven UN soldiers are planned for the future
"Was Med Pack added to the game for shits and giggles?"
"YES... But really, why was it implemented. Some time in the future we'll add AI UN squads that would have machine gunners, medics, something like that. And these backpacks are going to spawn on those medics."
- Crafting system is going to be redesigned to allow more crafting recipes
Everything is planned out. Most of the top tier ammo can be crafted already. And we'll add even more ways. Why are we not adding it now? To be honest, we want to redesign it all because there's simply too many crafting recipes. We need to make a new slick interface. We'll add more variants of crafting to ammo.
- New loot spawns and redone old spawns. Dynamic loot is done, but will be added in the future.
We need to rebalance loot, that's what we are doing right now. In 12.6 there are going to be new loot spawns, old spawns are going to be redone. And we have lots of task regarding dynamic distribution of loot. It's done, but why it wasn't added in this patch... we had no time, that's all! It would probably be added in 12.7 or 12.8.
- Nvidia Freestyle is going to be prohibited.
"Some players are using old Nvidia Freestyle because it's less FPS-hungry than new PostFX. But we all know that Freestyle gives an unfair advantage. What is BSG's position on those people and the usage of Freestyle?"
"Our position is simple - we'll prohibit it with BattleEye. Just like we prohibited Reshade.
- Test servers with Unity 2019 and C++ engine builds are planned.
To be honest, we have done the techical servers already. And we have the need to use them. We are planning to release a special build of the game on Unity 2019. It's going to be the same game, but on another engine. If you want to try it out you'll need to actively submit tickets with bugs, not just play the game. Also we need people that play alot and know alot about the game, so they would spot inaccuracies right away. Also the C++ engine build is planned for testing.
- Maps with just Scav and PMC extracts would be added when all maps are done
"I've tried hundreds of times to exit at the scav-pmc exfil, but only managed it once."
"Ok, I get it. But imagine that EVERY exfil is going to need both a scav and a PMC"
"Oh, then the question is when it's going to be implemented?"
"I would say after all maps are done."
- Karma system for PMCs and Scavs is written down, but will be implemented when almost all bosses are added.
The karma system for Scavs is planned. Moreover, we want to make DLC in the future about scav's life. In it you're going to be able to play as a boss, so on and so on. And karma is very tightly knit around playing as a boss. A player Scav can kill the boss and leave. In this instance the karma is going to affect the player very heavily - from increased cooldown to your presence already known to the boss when you enter his area.
Karma system is written down. But we don't implement it yet because we first need to add not all, but about 80% of the bosses to locations.
- Arena mode about fighting a group of bosses is planned
Bosses are very cool. It's going to be very fun gunning them in Arena. There's going to be a mode in which you'll fight with a group of bosses. With each new boss we are trying to add new AI, new behaviour. And it's going to be interesting how those AI's interact with each other.
- New boss Sanitar on Shoreline.
Right now we are making the Sanitar (UAP, Paramedic, Aidman) who's going to appear in 12.7. His behavior is ill, to say. He aids people, makes stashes, hides items. He's interesting!
- Voicelines for Scavs planned, not just current muttering
For Scavs we have everything recorded just like for PMCs except for specific situations. So yeah, it's planned.
- First addition of Steam Audio will be in 12.6
Sound! When is the sound going to be redone!?
The first iteration of the new sound is going to be implemented in 12.6.
- Bosses will have their own voicelines
Bosses' voices are being recorded. We already have the voice of Reshala.
- Someone wants to voice a character? Write to BSG and nominate that person!
If you want a certain famous guy to voice someone - post it on Twitter, add hashtags, write to us. Make some noise. In short, if the person wants it, I am all for it. I don't want to pay a lot of money and get inexpressive, protocol work. I want the man to really desire it.
If you have ideas - write to us on Twitter. Our PR guy is going to look through them and send them to the team
- PostFX presets maybe coming out
"Are there going to be presets for PostFX?"
"I've seen a bunch of requests for presets, even for certain locations. I don't know, I think it's too much. But I'll think about it.
- Presets for flea market? Nikita is gonna think about it.
"Can we get presets for flea market filters?"
"I'll write it down"
- PostFX also working in the menu is planned
It can be done so PostFX will work in the menu, it's planned. It's just it's going to be harder to implement.
- War belts are planned to be added after plate carriers and rigs are remade.
"When are War belts are going to be added in the game? And would it be possible to add them before the plates system?
"I personally don't like war belts. Just because I'm not comfortable wearing them, that's all. It's just me, I'm a damn well-fed tactical. The more I carry, the worse I feel. I can't jump from trench to trench like a mongoose.
In short - war belts are planned. But after the remake of plate carriers, customization of chest rigs and so on.
- Chest rig customization would allow to display the contents of the pouches.
We almost confirmed the design of chest rigs' customization. It's a serious task. It's going to be done before patch 13.0. We'll be doing for a long time, 3 or 4 patches. It's a complex system with a full-fleged interface. There are lots of questions about optimizing it all, so you won't need to render millions of pouches, bake them. And we also want to make so that the contents of the pouches would be visible, but there are many subtleties. Pouches are different, mags are different. Long, short, thick, thin. We'll need to code a system that automatically scales and moves it all. Clipping will be present for sure, but we'll try to minimize it. It's one of my most awaited features.
- Decorative elements for chest rigs.
There are going to be decorative elements for rigs. Like this spring hook *grabs a spring hook on the plate carrier he is wearing*. You'll be able to buy lots of them and cover your torso with them.
- BSG will not introduce quests to increase pockets slot count.
"There were suggestions about adding more slots to pockets for completing special tasks, like kill each boss 100 times and get double the amount of slots for pockets"
"I heard that. But here's the deal, then it's going to be meta. Everybody is going to be using one pair of pants, one jacket. And we don't have many of them."
- New clothes for PMCs and Scavs in 12.6
We can add all sorts of clothes to Scavs. We can add something like... smear Vaseline on yourelf 8000 times and get workpants with rubber boots for PMC! You'll be running around in a plate carrier and rubber boots, yeah.
In 12.6 we'll add new clothes to both USEC and BEAR and one jacket for Scav.
- UN troops will make it harder for you to traverse the map.
UN troops are going to be controlling and dividing the map so you won't be able to go around freely. And they'll have features tied to working with Peacekeeper.
- Since the start of EFT bugtracking program there has been over 13k collected tickets.
Y'know how many tasks we have? Since the start of bugtracking program we've accumulated... let's see what's the number of the most recent ticket... 13049! It's a shitload!
In Contract Wars we waited 2,5 years to get to 1000th ticket! Bonkers, man.
- There is going to be a guide on how to properly write a bugreport
"You said that there are only 10-20% of decent bugreports, everything else is garbage. Is there going to be a guide how to write a good report?"
"Okay, I hope the support team is watching the podcast. Please tell them to make an article on how to properly write bugreports so you'll become a tester on TTS"
- Nikita is adamant about adding VOIP to EFT. But they'll be testing it anyway.
VOIP was planned a long time ago, it was a must have in the game. But I've watched a bunch of new multiplayer games like Squad and so on. You'd think they are cool tacticool guys, but even then... huuuh...
There is certainly going to be a guy that would turn on a loud gay porn and it would annoy other players. We'll be making and testing VOIP anyway. To combat such abusers maybe we'll implement report system.
- Player report system is planned
"Regarding the report system - is it going to be like in PUBG that you can report a suspicious player?"
"Yeah, it's a system that's planned to be implemented in a near future. You can report a player for suspicious activity, potential cheats, inappropriate nickname and also you can report a lagging server. The last one will be useful for us.
- Player reports will not get people banned right away
Don't even think that people are going to be banned with reports, it's not going to be that dumb. Dude gets flooded with reports and gets banned, nothing like that. It's going to be a secondary system. If the player has an inappropriate nickname first he is forced to change it and after that he gets banned if he does it again.
So here's a situation - let's say there is a super private cheat that costs 80k a year, no one knows anything. From that there's lots of data, lots of reports on that guy. Then we track him - here he has strange speed, there he gets too many headshots. And all of that together gives us a reason to act. Not on that single guy, but the whole cheat. We detect by analyzing the client and server data and say that this guy is a cheater and BattleEye then does everything to get hardware proof that this guy indeed is using a cheat."
- Secure container changes not in 12.6. Maybe will be tested in pre-wipe.
I had an idea about not allowing to store trading items in the secure container in 12.6. But sensing how someone would explode if it was added, I decided not to. Maybe it will be added to test it during pre-wipe.
- Compass is planned in 12.7-12.8
Compass is planned in 12.7-12.8.
- New added land on Customs will be added in space inbetween Old gas station to Construction site
The patch of land from the Old Gas Station to Construciton site - that's how much is going to be added on Customs. With buildings, so on. They have detalisation that other maps don't, I asked the team to decrease it, so it won't stick out.
- Shoreline in its first version was even more unoptimised than you might remember.
I've been optimizing Shoreline when it first came out and it's been a complete trash, honestly. The developer man simply copy-pasted 2 varieties of rooms on Resort. Slippers, hairbrushes, 6 toothbrushes in one cup, glasses, papers - about 350 objects all together. So he simply copy-pasted it all everywhere.
The wings on Resort are mirrored, right? So he makes one wing and just mirrors it. And it wasn't stored in folders, it was just a bunch of files together. And I've been deleting these damn slippers for a week to optimize Shoreline. And then I was thinking that I've optimized it - was 15 FPS and became 17 FPS. Later they've done lots of other things to Resort.
Wish you could see what the detalisation was on Reserve. And the Labs, oh the Labs! Y'know that area with mechanical robot arms? It was completely different! It had 3-layer assembled lab boxes. Everything was being deleted and redone.
- EFT book is done and may go live mid-May.
Tarkov book is completed. Right now proofreading and redacting is happening. And about the series - I hope it's going to go live mid-May.
- New wave of players was very hard on BSG. Overall they increased the amount of servers from 17 to 170.
The Twitch Drops were complete bonkers. Thank God online has smoothen out. Before there were peaks - people come from work and start playing in different time. Lots of peaks that have been freaking us out, often during the night. And I remember - right before the New Year we all sat down together to think. 40k online and we are dead, our back-end is dead. And after New Year 60k came. After a week it was 80k. Another week it was 120k. Then it was 140k. And it all came down to 170k-180k online.
And all this time we've been monitoring and raising servers from the dead non-stop. In short, we had 17 servers and got 170 servers. And it sucked so much, we had to work without weekends and breaks. Admins and back-end staff were constantly blaming themselves and each other, I've been screaming all the time. It was not cool. And we were DDoS'd around New Year almost every day. DDoS were the ones that cost 15-20k dollars.
It's really hard to deal with such big online amount and the game of such size. And you can say "uGh, WhY dOn'T yOu JuSt BuY aMaZoN sErVeRs?" They cost a shitload, that's why! 1,4 million dollars a year, I couldn't believe my eyes. So we continued to modify the system by buying more servers, finding bugs and building fail-safe security, fool-proof and fault-proof.
- The first batch of merch is complete, but it's delayed because the site is not released yet.
Merch is delayed because of coronavirus. The main problem is the site, they don't have the time to build it, to test it and finally release it. The first batch is complete, I'm sure it will sell out like hot cakes.
- Bug abusers and skill grinders will be fought. Bug abusers can be reported after the introduction of the report system.
"What's your opinion on system abusers that grind the skills and raise them in a short amount of time? And do you have any plans for them?"
"I have a negative opinion. I don't like when people play the game not the way it was intended. I am really sorry for you, the honest people, that play it fair. And those abusers later say something like "Ah, Ya DiDn'T sEt ThE pRoTeCtIoN, sO iT mEaNs It'S aLl LeGiT". For that I can say this - go fuck yourself, dear sirs. We'll be fighting you.
If you are using the bugs - after the patch there is going to be a report function for bug abuse. And we'll be banning for that. So please don't do it, just report the bug.
- Bug bounty and rewards for finding them may be implemented in the future
I've been suggested a lot of times an advanced system about bug bounty and rewards. So yes, eventually we'll do it. But it needs extra resources.
- Dead PMC items won't be counted as found in raid because people may launder them. And BSG knows if you try to do shady trading on empty servers.
"Why the items from the dead PMC won't be counted as found in raid?"
"I'll say it again - you'll be able to trade items and launder them. But you can say "Oh, make it so it only applies to people in party". But no, people find their ways. They enter empty servers at night, empty maps like night time Factory.
And you know, it's all being monitored. We've banned so many bots, so many scripters.
- Introduction of Captcha in Flea market. There will be different triggers for it.
Flea market will have Captcha. And there are different conditions for it to trigger. You refresh too often - get the Captcha. Buying too much - get the Captcha. Selling two times for the price much higher - get the Captcha and a note in back-end that you are a shady guy.
- BSG won't protect you from unfair trades, it's in player's interest to be careful when using Flea market. And in 12.6 dollars and euros will have different colors.
"What about protection from unfair trades like cheap items in exhange for Red Rebel?"
"This part is tightly knit around new wipe and its new found in raid only rule.
First, the items will be put on flea market with more care and more thought. So people will be more considerate.
Second, everything must be done in stages. You can't do anything all at once. We have lots of bugfixes and features planned, so we do them in batches.
We have a bunch of quality of life improvements, like metrics, fool proofs. In 12.6 dollars and euros are going to be differently colored, people have been asking for it for a long time.
We don't have the need to do it. Players must be vigilant and careful. Flea market is a place where you can be fooled easily and you need to be careful. People want super tools like automatic buy, buy orders, and so on so that they can become a magnate while picking their nose.
You can become rich, you'll learn the ropes and that will be your shtick in the world of EFT."
- Nikita hopes that people would find their own role in the world of EFT and stick to it
My ideal image would be that people in EFT would eventually pick people in clans and battle groups by their skills. Not like "Ah, Vasili is a cool guy" or "Oh, this one has lots of moneys". Like this guy can pick locks, this one runs fast, that one trades well. I want it to be like that, so everyone would have their own role. And replayability would be huge.
- System with 2 playable characters in different realms is planned - one is permanent and one can be wiped
We'll introduce a system with two characters - one in a permanent realm and one realm being wiped constantly. Second one is just like it's going right now and the permanent one is going to be when you'll finish EFT. You can finish EFT when everything will be done - quests, story, etc.
- Mobile app's functionality will be limited. Nikita would like to develop API for flea market monitoring services.
Mobile app had been planned a long time ago. It's functions will be limited - you won't be able to trade or go to hideout. At least we want the player to be able to get the insured items, get the sold items or renew the offers in flea market, check the flea market, look up the in-game encyclopedia. It won't have the full functionality so you'll have the full system without needing to enter the game.
Veritas is the guy we want to develop the system. But right now we don't have the time to do it all. He says he can do it all by himself, but I know he can't.
There is a site for monitoring flea market. How they do it is not right. For those kinds of people we would like to develop API. Because those services would potentially cease to exist because of constant updating and constant Captcha.
If the site is cool, we'll contact you and give you the flea market data. I think it's even going to be public - prices, items on sale, etc. People would be able to make applications tied to that data and we won't be against it. What we are against is when the ads are involved on such sites. Especially the advertisement of RMT.
- Nikita threatens sites with Real Money Trading and cheat ads with potential lawsuit and shutdown.
If I see these RMT ads one more time I'm gonna tell our lawyers and we'll shut you all down. I know you guys want to earn the money. You have Patreon, you have donations, ads, all that stuff. I am not against it. What I'm against is the advertisement of this bullshit. Some even advertise cheats. So please be careful about that. We can easily shut you down even for the simple icon usage. Don't be dumb, don't get yourself in trouble.
- API is going to be released eventually.
NoFoodAfterMidnight is parsing the data, datamining it. It's not right, but I'm not against it. I understand that they all have the same reason - "give us API". It's not like we don't want it, we simply have more important stuff to do. I thought we'll release API by 12.7. API will be released eventually, but please don't hurry us, we have more important things to do than additional resources.
- BSG is against people bringing up datamined stuff. Nikita asks for people to be more positive and not blame the team constantly.
Some nasty people datamine developer objects that generate a wave of unnecessary questions that we need to answer and react to. And sometimes we don't have time to answer them.
Bugusers find another bug and make a video on Youtube right away. What are you even doing? They all try to justify it by saying that they bring light and attention to it. You can't believe how hard it is to work when you need to fix something in a hurry.
There are sane people that know it needs to be fixed, but eventually. But some just start to blame us, call us dumbasses. It's unpleasant to hear. Sometimes you start to think why are we even doing it, who are we making the game for. It's hard. We have 100 people in staff. I can't just make a call-out for people to start working in 9 PM on Friday. I can't call and say "Sergey, what are you doing? Grilling? Drop what you are doing and go fix the shit!" But even that happens sometimes. When we were balancing back-end we had to get people from vacations. It's serious and people can't see what's hidden behind all this deal, how hard it is. People burn out, people quit because they can't endure it. And I personally feel bad about it. I wanted everything to be good, but the man quit. The man quits with pent up negativity, but I want others to feel positive, to know that they work in the best company in the world. Working tasks are okay, but when someone from outside starts to get on your nerves and throw unnecessary info at you, impose unnecessary actions at you it really sucks.
Someone might say "Why do you complain? You get the money for it!" I won't even leave comments to that.
People that want to stand up to the game, to protect it - please say something. Positive comments are much stronger than negative ones. I don't mean that you should be a fanboy. We make mistakes, we say bullshit. But we never thought and wanted to lie to someone and make money from them. You just want to make everything right. We are not the legendary studio that makes everything right, but we strive to become better.
- There were many events BSG wanted to visit, but due to coronavirus it was all cancelled.
The past year has been by far the most positive and productive ever. If not for the coronavirus and not for the cancellation of the events we wanted to visit, it would be even more amazing. But there are many things to come, it's not all lost.
- First iteration of skill redesign is complete
"Is there any infomation regarding skills redesign?"
"First iteration is complete. A part of skills will be redone - how they are leveled, bugs associated with them"
- Underbarrel launchers are going to be added after BSG adds hand grenade launchers
"When the new underbarrel launcher are going to be added in the game?"
"First we plan to add hand grenade launchers. After that we'll add underbarrel launchers."
- VSS ammo nerf in 12.6
"Is there going to be a nerf to VSS?"
"There's been a work done to it in 12.6. I think it's about ammo damage."
- EFT release date unclear, will be announced after the completion of key features.
"Nikita, you said that in May you may announce the date of release. Are you going to do it?"
"I thought in that time I'll know for sure. But I can't say it right now. Because right now there are many things in EFT that need to be done. These are Streets of Tarkov, chest rig customization and story quests. These 3 features need to be complete before we announce the release date.
EDIT: Update on 12.6 being delayed - Pestily checked with Nikita directly and is saying that 12.6 is not delayed. But in my defence I can say that Nikita did indeed say that 12.6 is beying delayed right now. You can check it yourself, even if you don't speak Russian. Open the podcast at 19:33 mark and turn on auto-translated subtitles. It is a bit scuffed, but Nikita says what he says - "А по факту мы сейчас 12.6 задерживаем из-за того, что закрываем потенциально возможные дыры как можно эксплоитить функционал".
So what I think happened is that 12.6 was supposed to come out much earlier. But because of the problems with flea market exploits BSG had to postpone the release of 12.6 without actually notifying the playerbase. It looked like 12.6 was going through development and testing phase without any major issues. But in fact not had it been for the sudden appearance of the potential exploits, the players could get their hands on 12.6 much earlier than now.

2020.05.01 10:57 kong-dao COVID-19: GDPR Violado

La pandemia abrazó al mundo en un aspecto sanitario y tecnológico, las distopias de Aldous Huxley o George Orwell (entre otros) aparecieron para quedarse, la realidad siempre supera la ficción, oculta desde la sombra miraba todo, lista para arrimarse cuando quisiera.
Con la idea de mezclar ambas partes, ciencia y tecnología, las empresas no tardaron en hacer una sinfonía orquestada que aturde a usuarios con el bombarde de información por medio de la televisión, radio, prensa o internet, que además utiliza como herramientas de control sin su conscentimiento, la excusa: COVID-19. No ahondaré en países donde la vigilancia rompe con todas las "libertades civiles" como China, Rusia, Corea del Norte, Corea del Sur, Estados Unidos, Australia, Canada, Nueva Zelanda, Japón, Israel, Iran y más, pero sí donde los políticos se regocijan y vanaglorian de las leyes aprobadas: Europa.
La "fiebre tecnológica" saltó al mundo cuando la OMS declaró la pandemia, miles de empresas de hardware y software especializadas en mediciones térmicas empezaron a frotarse las manos para "predecir" los síntimas del virus: fiebre, fatiga, pérdida del apetito y el olfato, tos, dolor muscular (efecto secundario de la fiebre), son los más "comunes" Resulta dificil atribuir a un virus síntomas tan generales, pero no tanto gracias a la tecnología que se instalará en aeropuertos, aviones, edificios públicos y privados (compañías) y no es casualidad que el "mercado térmico" haya saltado como nunca antes con un valor estimado de €65 Billones según Telegraph
Recientemente Google y Apple se asociaron para "ayudar" con su aporte tecnológico, crearon una API (Programa de Aplicación con Interfaz - Application Programming Interface) hoy conocida como "app", que estará en los sistemas operativos Android e iOS a partir de las proximas actualizaciones de software. La aplicación utilizará el sistema de Bluethooth para identificar, gracias al GPS, cerca de quien estuvo, cuándo y dónde, hará "tests" de COVID-19 que si da positivo se enviará a las autoridades y luego se enviarán una alerta de forma anónima a la persona que estuvo en contacto con el "infectado". Ante esta iniciativa del sector privado, los gobiernos de Francia y Alemania levantaron la mano para pedir acceso a los códigos, mientras ellos desarrollan sus propias APIs con la ayuda de los institutos Inria (Francia) y Fraunhofer (Alemania) ambos miembros del proyecto PEPP-PT (Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing) los que según la documentación oficial subida a Github (compañía adquirida en 2018 por Microsoft en U$7.5 Billones) no muestra el código fuente, solamente se ven unos cuantos pdf además de las 43 incidencias entre las que se relacionan los problemas de privacidad y seguridad que ofrece la "app", cuyo último documento fue subido por el primer instituto fechada el 30 de Abril de 2020 diciendo respetar las normas mínimas del GDPR (¿Qué dice el GDPR? Lo aclaro debajo) La pregunta sería ¿cómo la API puede descartar los falsos-positivos? Aún no está claro. Lo que si está claro es que el mismo documento oficial aclara que el impacto será la Vigilancia Masiva, los informes son precarios con respecto a la información técnica sobre la tegnología que utilizarán y si la app será centralizada o descentralizada, es decir de código abierto (open-source) o código cerrado (al que acceden solamente los "dueños") que de momento sería el último caso. Este plan o proyecto "pan-europeo",comenta Thomson Reuters, fue apoyado por las más grandes empresas de telecomunicaciones de Europa entre las que se encuentran: Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telefonica, Telecom Italia , Telenor, Telia y Telekom donde la primer ministra alemana Angela Merkel apoyó de forma rotunda tras bloquear las acciones de Trump para comprar vacunas a CureVac (farmaceutica alemana subvencionada por la Fundación Bill & Melinda Gates) Desde el mes de Abril los países que comenzar con el plan fueron: España, Italia, Noruega, Belgica, Inglaterra, Portugal y Grecia.
La página oficial de la empresa española Telefónica muestra de forma orgullosa su historia colaborativa con Facebook, además de asociarse con Google y el gobierno español para desarrollar una "app" local y combatir el COVID, empresas que la Comunidad Europea estaba bloqueando por considerarlas "comeptencia".
Vodafone tiene actualmente trabajando a investigadores pagados por la Fundación Bill & Melinda Gates para luchar contra la pandemia, una con la que tienen relación hace más de 10 años según la web oficial de la institución. (Esta fundación ya fue expuesta en otro articulo sobre su intención de reducir la población mundial y cómo se relaciona con la infame OMS)
En 2016 la Comunidad Europea aprobó la Regulación de Protección General de Datos (siglas en inglés: GDPR) aplicada (tardíamente) en 2018 para trabaja a la par es el Comité Europeo de Protección de Datos (EDPB por sus siglas en inglés) Esta última, dirigada por la abogada Andrea Jelinek, hizo publico un breve comunicado de 3 páginas en la web oficial el día 19 de Marzo de 2020, en la 1er pág. cita:
Emergency is a legal condition which may legitimise restrictions of freedoms provided these restrictions are proportionate and limited to the emergency period. (La emergencia es una condición legal que puede legitimar las restricciones de las libertades\, siempre que estas restricciones sean proporcionadas y limitadas al período de emergencia)*
*[La palabra legitimar deriva de legítimo, es decir, legal, lícito o permitido, lease "es permitido restringir las libertades"] Condición anti-ćonstitucional de los "derechos humanos" que rechaza de pleno el Articuloº13 sobre la libre circulación.
El 20 de Abril, una publicación de Bloomberg declara:
We know that cellphone contact tracing is effective, though, in part through documents made public by the former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden describing how the National Security Agency gained access to global location data by tapping into mobile network cables. Intelligence agencies used this data to uncover hidden associations of known targets based on intersecting movements. (Sin embargo, sabemos que el rastreo de contactos de teléfonos celulares es efectivo, en parte a través de documentos hechos públicos por el ex contratista de inteligencia de los Estados Unidos, Edward Snowden, que describen cómo la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional obtuvo acceso a datos de ubicación global al conectarse a cables de redes móviles. Las agencias de inteligencia utilizaron estos datos para descubrir asociaciones ocultas de objetivos conocidos basados en movimientos de intersección.)
Recientemente el navegador Brave que apunta a la privacidad de los usuarios (pero no más que el open-source Firefox) denunció a la comunidad Europea por violar las políticas de GDPR con respecto a los usuarios, alegando que los gobiernos están fallando en respetar las políticas que ellos mismos crearon para proteger a los usuarios.
El periódico inglés Daily Mailpublicó un articulo titulado: "Cuando las pandemias golpean, el libro de reglas sale volando por la ventana": Expertos advierten que el rastreo de smartphones para encontra el coronavirus puede pavimentar un gran camino a la vigilancia masiva
Otro medio que levantó la alarma fue Politico con el titular: La privacidad amenazada en Occidente por combatir el virus
Está claro que gracias a la tecnología GPS se puede hacer un seguimiento bastante preciso, se puede saber dónde vive, dónde trabaja, con quien se junta (por proximidad entre los móviles que transmiten beams o beacons) y dónde, con qué frecuencia visita x lugares, los sitios turisticos o de consumo que frecuenta, información obviamente detallada por una cronología que indica en qué hora, min y seg, si se estuvo moviendo o estuvo quieto. Un instrumento más del hoy llamado Big Data
Las más grandes tecnologías, medios de comunicación, y gobiernos están haciendo de "reguladores de información" contra las "fake news", unas falsas noticias que ellos mismos crean para generar confusión y desinformación en la sociedad actual, así es más fácil de dirigir a las masas hacia un futuro sin libertad de expresión, sin libre-pensamiento, sin democracia, es decir, sin libertad(es) y que además viola los derechos humanos, y las leyes que los mismos gobiernos crearon.
La tecnología es una poderosísima herramienta, saber usarla está en sus manos, ignorarla es dejar que otros la usen en su nombre para hacer bien o para hacer mal, algo que usted nunca sabrá.

2020.04.27 07:47 IcisBlack [REVIEW/REFERENCE] LV Multi pochette Accessoires Monogram - Orange Couch Factory - TS Alisa - ¥1,140 (Long review - Pic and Video Heavy)

Intro: This is going to be a long post. Sit back, relax and read on...
What a long process for this rep rookie! My eyes and world opened up right before 2020 Chinese New Year when I found this group of amazing ladies and gents. I lurked and waited for the opportunity to purchase after CNY. About the same time, I came across TS Alisa's sale items. Now, my kryptonite is the words pertaining to "SALES", "CLEARANCE", "50% off" and the likes. My eyes dilate and heart rates goes up when I see sales. Being a rep rookie and seeing a sale is do you even control yourself? I decided to make a jump for it.
Purchasing the sale item (Chanel Trendy WOC Quilted GHW - Separate review) was the tipping point for me as I also asked Alisa about the LV Multipochette Accessoires Monogram since I was literally obsessed with this bag (this bag is the reason why I found and then joined RepLadies).
Backstory: The LV Multipochette Accessoires was not a love at first sight for me. First thought was: "Why does one need 3 small bags instead of one larger one to encompass them all?" It started growing on me the more I look at mod shots (and it didn't help that it was all over the internet at that time) and then a coworker of mine wore one of these in front of me at the beginning of 2020, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I'M FREAKIN' OBSESSED/POSSESSED (one in the same in this occasion)...and now my life revolves around this bag. You know that TLC channel with that show called My Strange Addiction? I feel like I need an episode there and called it My Random Obsession. Anyways, this post is more for me to document my madness and odd dedication to this bag. This is very unlike me...

Videos & Pictures of Bag:
My husband was laughing so hard at me when he woke up from his overnight shift sleep and saw me staging the bag in my makeshift "studio"[couch] so many ways to take pictures of it.
  1. Orange Couch Factory Photos
  2. PSPs
  3. Unboxing videos
  4. My pictures to document my strange obsession
  5. Comparison pics: auth vs. rep

    4. Tab Stitching from u/strictlylv
    5. Seatbelt/Guitar Strap
Now, I need insert a caveat: I'm a rookie through and through, so my review may be skewed because of my untrained eyes, hands and nose. I've never owned anything above a cowhide Kate Spade bag that was on sale. I've never dared to walk inside a lux brand store - palms get sweaty and mom's spaghetti, ya know? I'm just not at that level. Leather of all kinds are foreign to me, so touch, feel, scent of leather is by description I concluded from reading others.
I'm mostly a girl with a utilitarian mindset (my favourite bag all time is an Ogio backpack). My bags are generally used as the definition of a "bag": literally, it is "a container made of flexible material with an opening at the top, used for carrying things." So, why did this bag became my obsession you ask? I don't know, but I think it is because of its wear versatility (just adapt the pieces and you are done) my ability to use it for multiple occasions (including day casual, day business, glam evening, or just lounge evening), it was an "IT" bag. I hardly own anything IT or trendy. I know, I know, I'm still late to the 2019 trend party, but hey, I'm here now!

***Based on my research, there are 2 auth versions of LV MPA produced: One is made in USA (serves mostly USA sales) and the other is made in France (serves mostly international sales). Most of the rep bags (along with mine) uses the France version as template.***

I aim to review as critically and "ANAL"ytically as possible of the factory's version to the auth's version. NOTE THE EMPHASIS ON "ANAL".
Quality - 7.75/10
QC Area Deduction (if any) Description
Material & texture The leather looks pebbled but feels quite soft and smooth. I think it looks a bit dry, but nothing that a soon-to-be-purchased leather conditioner can't solve (Cadillac?). The leather tabs are thick and supple with red glazing ispainted relatively clean lines. Canvas colour has variations. Comparing to LV's Neverfull canvas, lighting aside, it is very comparable with the printing.
Stamping of Logos -0.75 The hot stamping on the Vachetta tabs are clear and defined with the correct font. The leather patch inside the pochette is also correctly stamped with "made in France" at the bottom. The printing/stamping inside the coin purse appeared to be faint (-0.5). The stamping on the canvas on the coin purse, pochette and mini pochette are correct per auth pictures.
Irremovable hardware The stamping and engraving of the "LV", "Louise Vuitton" on the zipper tabs, lobster clamps are all legibly stamped. The hardwares are all shiny soft gold.
Removable hardware Chain-"Louis Vuitton" with flower are stamped on the rings. Measured at 30 grams in weight. Seatbelt strap - felt sturdy and seatbelt-safety-ish. Gold tone is matching and is consistent troughout the whole set.
Stitching -1.5 Stitching on the leather tabs appears to be all the rage with this bag (and all bags in general). Depending on where the bags are assembled together, the stitching have some variations. Most auth pics I have seen have 9 total (3 dbl) stitches on mini & 10 total (3 dbl) stitches on the pochette. However, I have seen an auth that has 4 dbl stitches. The leather tab inside pochette has correct stitching as well. The coin purse stitching at the bottom was a miss (-1) as it was not flat and pulled a bit at the bottom - I don't really know if this is enough to red light this bag. Based on my thought that it is not going to affect function, I approved it. However, I'm highlighting this as a quality concern for others. The stitching on the back of the seatbelt strap looked a bit messy, but again not going to affect function (-0.5). The seatbelt strap appears to use the correct stitching patterns and the sewing of the ends are clean and straight.
Zippers, Clamps, Clips All zippers work smoothly. All lobster clamps spins smoothly and springs back to original position.
Interior Lining The inside linings of the pochettes are correctly stitched with a loop of fabric at the opening end. The threads used are correctly coloured.
Scent Per a website: " An authentic Louis Vuitton bag will smell clean and may have a slight leather odour". My hubby said it smells like leather (I can't tell). I didn't get a headache and room was not overpowered by an odor, therefore, I concluded no strong smell - only leather smell.
Overall sturdiness/Construction The bag set feels and look overall well-constructed. Edges are all clearly cut with precision. All outside stitches on the pochettes, coin purse and seatbelt strap are straight and have no loose threads. All in all, the bag set feels like it can last through some thick and thin outings with me...but I have to remember this is not an Ogio packpack! Treat it with care!
Accuracy of Bag - 8/10
Again, comparing it to the auth bag. Really being critical and ANALytical here...

QC Area Deduction (if any) Description
Dimensions and weight of bag, chain(s), strap(s) -0.5 Component Dimensions: Separated by brackets (auth)[mine] Pochette Accessoires (23.5x13.5x4cm) [24x13.5x4cm]; Mini Pochette Accessoires (12.7x9x2cm) [18x11x3cm]; Round Coin Purse (9x9x2cm) [9x9x1.5cm]; Adjustable strap drop (Min:37cm-Max:56cm) [Min: 35cm-Max: 53cm]; Removable chain (drop 24 cm) [24cm]
Shape -1 The shape of the rep pochettes appeared to be more rectangular than auth. The auth tends to curve at the opening to resemble a wide "U" shape.
Positioning or Alignment of monograms/quilting/stamping -0.5 The canvas used were correct - larger monograms on the front and back, while smaller monograms on the edges. Studying auth bag pictures shows that there are slight variations with the (round flower placement of the mini pochette and the star flowers lined the front of the bottom edge of the pochette)[]. However, prevalent mod pics and LV's website shows the mini pochette's round flower at the bottom to be slightly higher than mine. As such, I ANALytically deducted 0.5 for the placement. The alignment of the tabs to the canvas appears to be at the right spot. Cut and size of the leather tabs looks like it is very similar to auth.
Logo Logo fonts on tabs, canvas, and seatbelt strap appears to be using the correct font and sizing. "LOUIS VUITTON" is not fully visible and partly covered by the D-Ring to connect the coin purse. I've seen a rep that has the "Louis Vuitton" stamped on the adjustable rectangle ring. Just to be clear, the auth I have seen does not have "Louis Vuitton" stamped on it (neither does OC rep).
Serial numbeDate stamp Serial numbedate stamp is: DR2159 on pochette, DR2169 on mini pochette, coin-purse is DR2169. The code DR is depicting that this bag is created from a factory in France. The date means the mini pochette and coin purse were produced on the 26th week of 2019 in France, while pochette is dated with 25th week of 2019 in France. I assumed a bag with multiple components will have the same date code in the auth world?

Accuracy & Quality of Peripherals - 6/10
This section is for all the rest of the things surrounding the bag. I don't know why but I expected an LV box that comes with this rep bag. I didn't ask the seller since I just assumed boxes and all dust bags come with non-sale items. Please comment/confirm below for this rookie to help set my expectations correctly next time.

Printing -0.5 The dust bag's printing of "Louis Vuitton" appears to use the correct font, but messy on the ink (-0.5)
Receipt & other paper materials -1.5 This bag came with a care and instruction booklet. Not the same size booklet as auth (-0.5). Some factories I believe includes everything from receipts to model number bar codes and things like that). (-1)
Packaging (box, dust bag, stuffing, wrappings) -2 No box (-1). The rep bag came with one dust bag, while auth comes with 4 dust bags (-1). The dust bag appears to use the same material and same sewing stitches as auth dust bags.
Auth cards (if any) N/A LV does not produce auth cards.
Satisfaction - 10/10
The feeling of excitement have transformed itself to relieve. Here's why:
TMI moment: You know that feeling after a giant #2 and you felt that rush of relieve after a long drought of bowel movement? Well, same feeling, but just not in the washroom. This whole ordeal with my strange obsession, steep learning curve about auth vs. rep and TS and factories, then to QC'ing for the first time, to ordering. Then the timing through Chinese New Year, country shutdowns, facemasks, toilet paper scandals, and baking mania was such a long ordeal that I'm just purely relieved that this bag actually made it and safely in my home. The shipping and custom gods were smiling on me. My package made it. I felt compelled to burn some incense to thank them.
The quality and accuracy reviews above are as critical, ANALytical, and nitpicky as I can be to provide an objective look at the bag. Most of the deduction points listed is not a big issue for me personally. Even as ANALytical as I can be, this bag scores at 78% to the auth (excluding peripherals). In my mind, this bag scores 90%+ to auth as it looks like an auth, smells like an auth, walks around like an auth. No gen pop in their right mind would question this magnificent work of art. Yes, it is a rep, but you still have to appreciate the workmanship, don't you? Don't you?!
As mentioned, this bag retails for $2,145CDN, after market for $4,426CDN. I bought this rep for $225CDN, which one can argue, is about 10% of retail or 5% of market price.
What more can I ask for at 10% of retail/5% of market to get a bag that is 78% to auth? Honestly.
Seller Communication and Service - 9.5/10
TS Seller: Alisa (名优包包高端定制 ID: HDD201810)

Areas Addition/Deduction (if any) Description
Responsiveness +1 My baseline min response time is 2 hours wait time, factoring in Guangzhou's timezone business hours. I don't think Alisa (or her workers if she has some) ever sleep as the avg response time is 15 mins. I think the longest I have waited is an hour for a response during Guangzhou's normal working hours, and 5 hours during non-working hours. The fast response
Price +1 Compared to TS Anna, Linda, Heidi, her prices seemed to be a bit lower when asked about the same bag from same factory. Alisa's shipping prices are generally a tad lower as well, but perhaps it is due to the packaging note below.
Integrity & Honesty -0.5 I ordered and paid for both bags. Alisa was quick to give me the PSPs for the Chanel Trendy WOC the very next day. When I approved the WOC is when the seller informed me that the LV MPA needs to wait for 10 days and if I'm ok with it. Well, I'm ok, but other buyers may not. I do prefer to know it upfront before I paid though.
Assurance and overall support -1 I'm kind of on the fence on this one. I like Alisa's no-sticker-all-business approach. However, I don't seem to receive much assurance (or proactiveness) in some cases. I almost felt like I have to do the nudging myself to get her to give me more intel. Couple of moments: (1) I informed Alisa at the beginning that I am new to purchasing items and I don't really know what I'm doing and had to ask questions. When I just wanted to order the WOC, I got the quote of ¥170 for shipping. When I asked if my orders can be shipped together, Alisa said yes and quoted me ¥275. By the times my items are ready to ship, I read that it is better 2 bags separately to avoid customs concerns. I already paid 2 weeks ago. I informed her that I heard it is better to ship bags separately. Her response was "Separate shipping will be extra ¥100". I then had to think and be creative: I follow up with her to ask if she had heard any issues with sending multiple bags based on all her orders that she shipped through. I then receive a satisfactory response. I just wish the seller can give me some proactive support. (2) Early in our conversation, when I asked about the LV MPA, Alisa only gave me the option of God Factory. It is nice, I informed her, but out of my price range. Alisa went radio silent. I then did my own research for another reliable and suitable price point factory. I asked her about OC Factory and that's when she gave me factory pics, price, and said "You can choose the orange sofa. It sells well." I guess I was hoping for some seller advice on factories.
PSPs +1 Alisa takes quite a few PSPs for buyer. Lighting is not bad. When I asked about a couple of things to be taken for PSP, Alisa immediately take extra photos for me.
Language Not much of an issue. Alisa responds better with Chinese, but also not bad with English.
Packaging & Shipping -2 The bags where not wrapped in any bubble wrap or other insulation before putting them in the shipping box. The package arrived dented, but fortunately the items inside came relatively unscathed. Things I ordered on AliExpress is packaged better than this box - and they are generally less than $10CDN. Anyways, I expected more from the packaging to ensure the boxes and bags inside are well preserved through the shipping ordeal.

2020.04.06 00:22 Absyrd Verified Psychic Reader, Tarot and Reiki Master, Divination Geek, Spirit Guide Enthusiast, and Clairvoyant Seer

We can discuss payment AFTER assessing your specific needs :)
ABOUT ME I became a psychic when I was three years old and I made friends with a particular djinn named Red. He took the form of an apple with cartoonish eyes and arms and told me that I could rely on him for answers to tests in school. Whenever I could not answer a question, Red would answer it for me and it would be correct about 85% of the time. As I got older and became friends with more of these spirits, at age 13 I realize that it was simply “uncool” to have “imaginary friends”. So I told Red and all the others that I could no longer be their friend because they do not really exist.
What followed was a state of existential dread filled to the brim with atheism and hatred towards God, life, and humanity all together. Worse yet, I ended up transferring to a Christian high school where I was the only atheist. I’m proud to say that I was the first and only student in the entire history of that school to graduate with and athletic, academic, and acting scholarship, all while not believing in God, proving to them all that secularism does not imply stupidity or incompetence.
It wasn’t until I turned 20 years old and I started dating somebody who kept having hallucinations of Anubis that really began to trigger my spiritual enthusiasm once more. It was at this point that I re-invited Red back into my life. However, I soon learned the difference between a djinn and a true spirit guide. A djinn is not always working in your best interest unless your friendship is deeper than life itself. But a true spirit guide, will always try to help you. They will always be by your side and they will never give up on you. Even when you mess up, even when you do the wrong thing, your spirit guides are not only forgiving, but they understand you completely and why you made those decisions.
Because I come from Cuban ancestry, I decided to stick with my ancestral bloodline and connect with deities of the Santerian nature. However, due to the homophobic practices of Santeria, I have switched over to a more holistic Yorubic faith, allowing me to keep the same spirit guides (called Orishas in the Yorubic terminology).
My primary Orisha is Yemaya, the goddess of the ocean. A motherly figure. And one who certainly represents my natural element as a water sign (Vedic Pisces Sun, Scorpio Rahu).
My secondary guide is named Chango, and he is the god of thunder and renowned a bit for his temper. But I relate to his anger, I feel his presence dearly and I love him very much. I know he has a heart of gold, and that he is willing to help me in all of my practices involving divination and in life.
I suppose my third guide is Oshun, although I’d rather tie her with Orula. Oshun is the goddess of the lakes and rivers and a very powerful anchor for divination practice. Orula was one of the witnesses Oludomare creating the Universe, which makes him one of the three aspects of God himself in Yoruba.
I believe that I should prioritize the three aspects of God more so than the guides I’ve previously stated, because it is ultimately God who can see all and know all. I suppose it is a matter of personal connection and communication that ties me so deeply to Yemaya and Chango and all these others. But I make sure to begin all of my prayers by thanking God in all his forms for allowing me the opportunity to bless someone else’s life with this gift.
Along side of these Orishas, I also have a soft spot for for Elegua, who is essentially the Orisha of pure divinity. when I’m stuck, I look at him and he just sends images to my head and I feel so grateful when he does that. Also sitting happily in my altar is Santa Martha La Dominadora. The woman who tamed a snake and saved a little boy, and thereafter slayed a dragon and saved a city. Now that’s what I call a badass. I have so much respect for her and she has a place in my altar as a statue holding the snake in her arms. That’s it for now folks!

I am available to do my readings via phone or text. Secondly, I try to be as compassionate as possible, but sometimes there are certain answers that no matter how much compassion I use, the answer is still going to hurt. I’m not saying this applies to your specific situation.
I do not believe in mean bluntness, and telling someone that this person does not like them and goodbye. If I were to determine that a person is not compatible with the person that they seek, the first thing I will do is try to find who it is that they will be compatible with and when they will meet this person and try to find out maybe what they will look like. It’s called having a heart, and caring about your customers. I don’t understand psychics who treat their clients like dirt. What are they so angry about? Or do they get off on it like some strange power trip?
My primary method is to first request the name of the person who is calling me or texting me. If they are calling about a relationship, I’d like to know the first name of that person as well. Then, I visualize them both standing in front of each other. I observe each one’s behavior. Sometimes I see mutual love. Sometimes I see hesitation from one side. Sometimes I see one of them literally running away.
I then asked my guides to help me understand what it is I just saw, and they will either tell me directly what these visions meant, or they will tell me to pick some tarot cards. I try to avoid the original meaning of the tarot cards and just use my own intuition combined with the visualization I just received. However, some situations are just so complex that I have to request guidance, and in that case I tend to turn to Orula and Elegua to please send me images when I close my eyes. Almost always do they comply, which is why I am so grateful to have them as my guides.
Sometimes I will not do the two person visualization. Instead, I will peer into their heart chakras one by one. And let me tell you, this method has shown me some absolutely absurd, practically nondimensional images. And it doesn’t help that you immediately after I analyze both of their heart chakras, I analyze their third eye chakras. And that’s where the juicy information really lies. What they expect from their future, dream symbols, even sometimes I’ll see their spirit guides in their spirit guides will look at me and I will tell them, I have been called here because someone asked me for my help. If these guides turn aggressive towards me, or do not trust me, I quite simply do not have the patience to deal with idiotic demonic crap. That’s when I call Chango. It does not take Chango very long to rid of these annoying creatures. That is an image of Chango, and he knows that the work I do, comes from my heart, and that my heart is good. So when I ask him for his help, and he gladly responds, we trust each other that we are doing the right thing. But I’ve got to admit, there’s nothing I love more than that beautiful axe he uses to disassemble evil in the ether.
I keep a journal where I have written every single Reiki symbol that can possibly be found on the Internet and I use them on people. Now here is something that you and I might not agree with. But I’m going to say it anyway. I do not believe that a person needs to consent to a Reiki healing. If the intention is good and the result is good, what is the point in consent? Respect? What, do I really need to “show respect” to someone just so I can help them? I perform Reiki on my family and friends without their asking. Good is good. That simple.

2020.04.02 16:15 collapsekit Thèse sur l'origine du COVID-19

Je lis partout des « on sait que » les marchands du marché aux fruits de mer de Wuhan vendaient des pangolins sous les étals, qui ont transmis le coronavirus à l'homme. L'info est même reprise sans l'ombre d'un conditionnel par nos chercheurs les mieux estimés et les plus réputés : Philippe Sansonneti, Gaël Giraud, Paul Jorion … En vérité, on n'en sait rien.
Je lis partout dans la presse que l'hypothèse d'un virus échappé du laboratoire P4 de Wuhan est « conspirationniste » ou « complotiste », dans le ''decodex'' du Monde notamment …. Non, non, non et non, ce qui serait « complotiste », ce serait d'imaginer un acte délibéré, une intentionnalité de la CIA, d'un grand laboratoire, de savants fous, des illuminati pour propager un virus à l'humanité en vue d'éradiquer les pauvres, les vieux, les ouïghours, les polonais, les européens ou autres, afin de se débarrasser d'une catégorie déterminée de la population et/ou de toucher des royalties sur un vaccin breveté à venir.
Mais qu'un virus sorte naturellement de son enceinte de confinement n'a rien d'impossible et que l'ingestion ou l'abattage de pangolin soit à l'origine de la pandémie reste à prouver. Dans les deux cas, on est confronté à des hypothèses. Il n'y a, pour l'heure, aucune raison d'accréditer le discours officiel des chinois sur l'origine de la contamination qui se propage actuellement à l'ensemble du globe.
La montée du risque pandémique est clairement énoncée depuis une bonne vingtaine d'années par les laboratoires de recherche et fait l'objet d'une surveillance intensive de l'OMS. Il figure en bonne place dans le rapport 2019 sur le Global Risk du World Economic Forum. La possibilité de la sortie accidentelle d'un virus est explicitement citée dans la revue stratégique de défense et de sécurité nationale de 2017, préfacée par Emmanuel Macron lui-même. Fin 2011, des scientifiques hollandais ont fabriqué un « virus mutant » de H5N1, puis de H7N9 au centre médical Erasmus de Rotterdam dont la caractéristique était un bricolage génétique ''assez commun en laboratoire'' consistant à le rendre agressif et contagieux d'homme à homme (alors qu'en principe sa transmission s'opère uniquement de l'animal à l'homme). Une initiative qui a alerté l'agence de biosécurité américaine, laquelle est intervenue pour faire interdire la publication de ''la recette'' dans la revue Science, en vue d'assurer autant que possible sa non-prolifération. L'idée pour les labos en concurrence est d'être prêt pour réaliser un vaccin dans les délais les plus brefs possibles en cas d'épidémie. Rien de malveillant à la base. Bien au contraire. Cela permet notamment de tester des anti-viraux. Mais le professeur Patrick Berche, chef de service de microbiologie à l'hôpital Necker, rappelle que les accidents sont nombreux dans les laboratoires de haute sécurité. On en dénombre plus de 450 ces 20 dernières années, certaines contaminations ayant été parfois mortelles.
Que sait-on de celui de Wuhan ? On sait que l'institut de virologie de Wuhan a inauguré un laboratoire P4 en 2017 sur le modèle du laboratoire Jean Mérieux Sanofi-Pasteur du quartier de Gerland à Lyon en présence de Marisol Touraine (ministre de la santé), Bernard Cazeneuve (1er ministre) et Yves Levy (compagnon d'Agnes Buzyn et président de l'INSERM). On y étudie, depuis, les virus les plus dangereux de la planète. On y travaille sur les coronavirus. L'institut est doté d'une animalerie – dans laquelle on a concentré plus de 600 chauve-souris. L'observation des coronavirus fait l'objet d'un moindre niveau de sécurité (classement P3 seulement). Des manquements aux règles de sécurité ont été dénoncés par des chercheurs chinois de premier plan. Le docteur Li Jinghai, président de la Fondation Nationale des Sciences Naturelles, lié au conseil des Affaires d’État du gouvernement chinois apporte sa caution à Botao Xiao et à Lei Xiao affirmant qu'une négligence serait à l'origine de l'épidémie. Et la controverse est en train de prendre un tour politique là-bas se centrant sur l'imputation des responsabilités et la place de la recherche dans le pays … Un article publié dans Nature le 17 mars dernier établit que le SARS-CoV-2 n'est pas volontairement artificiel (''not a labotary construct or a proposefully manipulated virus'') mais n'écarte pas absolument la possibilité que le SRAS-CoV-2 ait ''acquis des mutations pendant l'adaptation au passage en culture cellulaire''.

Il existe au moins un précédent célèbre encore très controversé d'un virus ayant très possiblement franchi la barrière des espèces à l'occasion de culture de tissus en laboratoire. (même si la Royal Society of Medicine de Londres espère avoir enterré le sujet à jamais sur la base du témoignage du médecin belge Paul Osterrieth). Il s'agit du virus HIV. En 1959, Hilary Koprowski (bienfaiteur de l'humanité à bien des égards) et son équipe réalisent une campagne de vaccination au Congo Belge, à l'époque encore colonisé, en vue d'éradiquer la poliomyélite. Le virus était cultivé sur des cellules de rein de chimpanzés, potentiellement infectées, à Stanleyville (devenu Kisangani en RDC). Cette information a été vigoureusement dissimulée pendant 44 ans avant que des films amateurs, des photos, des procédures écrites archivées et des témoignages de travailleurs sur place ne viennent en apporter la preuve. Peine perdue, l'Histoire officielle semble avoir définitivement retenu pour origine du virus du Sida la « théorie du chasseur ».

Si l'Histoire est toujours écrite par les vainqueurs, elle est à la merci de devenir l'objet des puissances économiques dominantes du moment : les sociétés transnationales, les firmes, les laboratoires. Peut-être plus encore que les États. Un autre exemple doit donner matière à réflexion. Aujourd'hui, on continue d'appeler Syndrome de l'Huile Frelatée, une contamination de masse qui s'est produite au début des années 80 en Espagne. Probablement la plus grande intoxication alimentaire survenue en Europe au cours de ces 40 dernières années : plus d'un millier de morts, 25 000 personnes gravement atteintes dont un grand nombre restèrent handicapées à vie. Un coupable idéal : l'huile de Colza importée et vendue à l'époque en quasi-contrebande sur les marchés contenant un composant appelé l'aniline. Les protestations de la communauté savante par rapport à cette hypothèse furent balayées et écrasées par un battage médiatique qui parvint à imprimer de manière définitive dans les esprits cette première version des faits. Tous ceux qui s'opposaient furent congédiés ou mutés, leurs centres de recherche fermés. L'un deux, particulièrement opiniâtre, le docteur Muro fut marginalisé et mourut subitement en 1985. Le Dr Muro et son équipe étaient parvenus à établir par corrélation statistique que la source de l'empoisonnement était en réalité les tomates provenant de la région d'Almería, à l’extrême sud-est de l’Espagne. Autrefois désertique, la région était impropre à l’agriculture jusqu’à ce que la découverte de nappes d’eau souterraines, dans les années 70, contribue à en faire un haut lieu de la production intensive. Fruits et légumes portés à maturité de manière accélérée sous d’immenses serres de plastique, certains producteurs obtenaient jusqu’à trois ou quatre récoltes par an. Ce boom agricole n’a été rendu possible que par l’application de copieuses quantités de produits chimiques : nutriments, engrais et pesticides. Parfois administrées en surdose au point même d'atteindre un niveau de morbidité immédiate ou de létalité s'ils étaient administrés sans les précautions indispensables. La découverte du Dr Muro aurait compromis le décollage économique de l'Espagne.

Quel rapport avec Wuhan ?
A Wuhan, ce qui est à peu près certain c'est que les autorités chinoises ont également voulu imposer leur vérité. Cela est vrai à la fois pour le nombre de décès, pour l'origine de l'épidémie et pour les modalités de sa propagation. Mais l'Europe occidentale – et en particulier la France – ont contribué à façonner ou à véhiculer un récit adéquat. Le 24 janvier paraissait dans la grande revue scientifique médicale ''The Lancet'', une étude très complète sur les 41 premiers cas infectés à Wuhan – âges, symptômes, facteurs possibles de contamination. Un tiers des cas n'avaient aucune relation avec le marché aux fruits de mer. Ce qui a amené les épidémiologistes américains à affirmer que le marché n'était pas la source mais seulement un vecteur d'accélération de la dissémination virale du fait de la grande concentration humaine : « Le virus n'est pas parti du marché, il y est d'abord rentré ». Or le 23 janvier en France, tout s'est passé comme si on avait voulu par une campagne de communication coordonnée allumer un puissant contre-feu : quasiment tous les journaux hexagonaux ont servi le même plat au public : Les Échos, Libération, Le Figaro, Le Point,, 20minutes, Sud-Ouest, La Charente Libre, La voix du Nord, Ouest-France, Le Courrier Picard, la RTBF, Science et avenir, etc. … incriminent simultanément et d'une seule voix les habitudes alimentaires des chinois, les ventes illégales d'animaux sauvages. Ils utilisent les mêmes phrases, les mêmes mots, les mêmes anecdotes au sujet de ''l'étrange marché aux fruits de mer de Wuhan''. On peut y lire qu'une brochure proposait d'offrir « Congelés et livrés à votre porte dès l'abattage » des animaux vivants aussi variés que des rats, des renards, des crocodiles, des louveteaux, des salamandres géantes, des serpents, des paons, des porcs-épics ou de la viande de chameau ». Puis que « le commerce, baptisé "Gibier et animaux d'élevage pour les masses", n'était pas joignable jeudi pour commenter cette liste ni par téléphone ni via l'internet mais que les Chinois se vantent volontiers de manger "tout ce qui a quatre pattes sauf les tables, tout ce qui nage sauf les bateaux et tout ce qui vole sauf les avions", y compris des espèces rares prisées pour leurs supposées vertus thérapeutiques ». Et enfin que « cette gastronomie présente des risques pour la santé humaine, [dixit] Christian Walzer, de l’association écologiste américaine Wildlife Conservation Society. Selon lui, 70% des nouvelles maladies infectieuses proviennent d’animaux sauvages et les marchés sont les endroits rêvés pour que les virus se transmettent à l’homme ».
Dans cette série d'articles presque tous identiques, tous parus à la même date, il n'est alors pas fait mention du pangolin. Cela viendra plus tard. Y est en revanche évoquée la civette déjà coupable d'une précédente épidémie et surtout la chauve-souris, mammifère multi-récidiviste et grand réservoir de virus devant l'éternel.

Il ne s'agit nullement d'affirmer que la version officielle a essentiellement vocation à disculper la responsabilité éventuelle d'une contamination accidentelle au laboratoire P3-P4 de l'institut de virologie de Wuhan. En vérité, elle est bien improbable. Il convient seulement de noter qu'en stigmatisant les conduites individuelles, qu'elles soient celles des consommateurs chinois supposés ''trop friands'' de viandes sauvages (donc peu fiables) ou les commerçants indélicats (semblables en cela aux vendeurs de soi-disant ''huile frelatée'' en Espagne aux débuts des années 80), on exonère à très bon compte … à la fois l'agriculture intensive notamment de volailles, de bœufs, de porcs très souvent responsable de la déforestation massive dans le monde, de la perturbation ou de la destruction des écosystèmes, de pollution monumentale des sols, de menaces morbides pour la transmission d'agents pathogènes par delà la barrière des espèces ... et la pharmacie traditionnelle ou conventionnelle qui fait un usage important d'organes, de tissus, de cellules, de sang ou d'écailles. Et on se prive de voir les dégâts de l'industrie planétaire du vivant.
Lorsque ont lieu des saisies douanières relativement aux pangolins, elles concernent essentiellement des trafics de plusieurs tonnes ou dizaines de tonnes d'écailles servant à fabriquer des médicaments en Asie. Quant aux premiers humains potentiellement cibles d'agents pathogènes, ce sont généralement des éleveurs travaillant sur de grosses exploitations ou des employés des fermes usines, d'abattoirs industriels … et non des chasseurs de brousse isolés ou de vulgaires amateurs de gibier.

2020.02.23 09:49 _Eltanin_ Weekly VTuber Spotlight: Eilene and her Family - February 23, 2020

Eilene (エイレーン) and Her Family

Eilene is a 20-year old anime girl who aspires to become a famous animator and to have her own anime series airing on Japanese TV. She was one of the very first active VTubers dating all the way back to 2014. Eilene was also behind the creation of other VTubers such as Moemi and Yomemi, Natsumi Moe, and Sifir Esirer, all of which have been labeled by internet users as “Eilene’s family”.
She was also heavily involved with the Mirai Akari Project having designed the concept for Mirai Akari as well as lending Akari her own channel as a launch point for her VTuber career. Eilene’s involvement with the Mirai Akari Project and by extension, the other parties involved ENTUM and DUO, later ceased citing pursuit of new challenges as a free agent as the primary reason. During her time of involvement with the project, most of her efforts have been as background support for her various family members as she takes on a managerial role as part of her production circle, ICETEA.
Instead of using her own voice or a voice changer, Eilene utilizes a synthetic voice bank from CeVIO called Satou Sasara through which to speak. This voice bank is capable of pronouncing English words and has a fairly recognizable screech that is present in many of her videos. Regular viewers of her productions would easily recognize her familiar greeting of “Nyan Hallo” at the start of her videos.
Eilene debuted her 3D Model in late 2018, and has since then been featured prominently on the Natsumi Moe and Moemi Yomemi channels as a recurring 3D character.
Common jokes concerning Eilene talks about her poor financial situation and how it has led to her eating grass due to only being able to pay off her bills but not decent food. She once mentioned in her patreon page that because of her situation, she relies on fan support in order to support herself and that if she reaches the $680 goal per month, she would add subtitles to all of her videos. As of this time of writing, videos (apart from some streams) on the Moemi & Yomemi Channel which Eilene manages have been subtitled and continues to be one of the few VTuber channels that consistently releases with English subtitles.
Due to her longstanding involvement with the VTuber world, 4chan's anonymous users on the /jp/ board have an ever-expanding "List of Eilene's crimes" that includes a myriad of things from making Mirai Akari wear a thong to causing Fumino Tamaki’s Leukoplakia.
Eilene’s career, while ultimately successful, has not been a smooth ride throughout. Upon reaching the 1000 subscriber milestone in 2014, Eilene published a draw-my-life detailing her life’s story until that point. Born to a Japanese father and a foreign mother, her father tragically passed away in her youth due to lung cancer, and she relocated with her mother out of Japan as a result. A fan of anime and manga since young, the language barrier presented by the move out of Japan made her an even bigger fan of anime and manga. With the monetization on Youtube, internet celebrities and professional content on Youtube as a platform on the rise, Eilene made it a goal of hers to produce anime and manga content on her own Youtube channel. In January 2017, Eilene’s Channel was unfortunately temporarily disabled, by Youtube, due to what was likely an influx of mass-reports from trolls.
Earlier in the same month Yomemi debuted as “Virtual Girlfriend Yomemi” to accompany Moemi who debuted August of last year. In July 2018, Natsumi Moe debuted as a Virtual Youtube under Eilene’s production circle, making her self introduction with Yomemi. In March 2019, Sifir Esirer was introduced on what would soon become her own dedicated channel.
Although Eilene has a channel, it doesn’t have any activity on it however most of her old videos can still be viewed on Natsumi Moe’s channel which just like Mirai Akari’s channel, used to be Eilene’s.
When it comes to videos, Eilene’s old content had the tendency to lean more on the ‘shitpost’ side of youtube utilizing, to put lightly, ‘eye-catching’ thumbnails while never shying away from crass and rude topics. Her videos are usually comedic skits though she won’t shy away from putting out a rant video every now and then. A common recognizable trend among all of her videos would be the lightning fast pace of her cuts and edits paired up with the equally fast delivery of the dialogue. This style of editing has since then been adopted by the Moemi and Yomemi channel. As of right now, all of her old videos which used to be on Mirai Akari’s channel have since been set to private so the only ones accessible on YouTube are the ones on Natsumi Moe’s channel.

Video Highlights

  • Eilene’s review of Boku no Pico is currently her oldest accessible video on YouTube in which she takes a stab at the worst anime ever according to most western viewers. Spoilers; having already watched loli, shota, NTR, etc. Eilene claims that to her, Boku no Pico is shota anime for beginners (lol).
[Significant announcement] Eilene has been converted to 3D! ! !
  • The first video showcasing Eilene's 3D model premiered on Oct 19, 2018
How to keep an Eilene [Yomemi]
  • One of the more recent videos on the Moemi and Yomemi channel showcasing all the various wacky antics you usually get from Eilene’s humor ranging from the various characters she’s developed over the years, her distinct editing style and her growth as an animator since she started her YouTuber career.
MrBeast Donated Me $50,000!! - Prank
  • Eilene’s infamous devilish prank on Yomemi where she sets her up thinking her private stream has been trending on twitter and having people send her increasing amounts of money. The video was uploaded on Oct 6, 2018 and at this time of writing has since then gained 2.1 million views.

Editor Notes
Heya! Thanks for reading our second VTuber Spotlight. Although Eilene is by no means a VTuber that could be considered relatively unknown (as we previously stated that our goal was to allow the western vtuber community branch out into discovering other Vtubers outside of Hololive and Nijisanji), her contributions and importance to the VTuber industry definitely warranted her time in the spotlight. We originally planned to make this a shared spotlight with Yomemi and Moemi as well but seeing as how Eilene's description/biography by itself ended up being longer than anticipated, they ended up getting mentions instead.
If you have any VTubers that you want to be on next week's spotlight or if you want to work on the next spotlight, feel free to comment below and we'll figure something out.
A big thanks to ChineseMaple for writing and providing most of the information seen here.

7 Tips for Upgrading IT Security
With desktop computers and Android mobile devices still big targets for hacks and cybercriminals, and Apple posting the highest number of reported vulnerabilities for its devices, IT security should be a prime concern at businesses large and small. All it takes is one security breach to shut down an entire network and compromise your business’s sensitive client data.
“Unlike the ‘hacker‘ of the past, today’s cybercriminals are after your most important information — your financial records, customer data, user accounts, and intellectual property,” says Brian Burch, vice president of marketing communications at Mountain View, Calif.-based information security company Symantec. “And the bad guys know that small business has fewer defenses than the average large company. They also know that your small company might be the “backdoor” to your biggest client.”
Here, Symantec offers seven tips for how owners can beef up security at their businesses:

1. Know what you need to protect.

Look at where your information is being stored and used, and protect those areas accordingly. Lost and unprotected mobile devices can be a big problem. Companies often have at least some devices that, if lost, have no password protection and can’t be remotely wiped of data, according to a recent Symantec study.

2. Enforce strong password policies.

Creating passwords with eight characters or more and using a combination of letters, numbers and symbols (e.g., # $ % ! ?) can help make your passwords more difficult to crack.
“I take a long word that means something to me personally and capitalize some letters and, most importantly, change other letters for symbols that resemble the letter they replace,” Burch says. For instance, consider replacing the letter “s” in a word with $.

3. Map out a disaster preparedness plan.

Identify your critical resources, use appropriate security and backup solutions to archive important files. Test them frequently.

4. Encrypt confidential information.

Implement encryption technologies on desktops, laptops and removable media such as USB devices to protect your confidential information from unauthorized access.

5. Use a reliable security solution.

Today’s solutions do more than just prevent viruses and spam, Symantec says. They can also scan files regularly for unusual changes in file sizes, programs that match known malware, suspicious email attachments, and other warning signs.

6. Stay up-to-date.

Your security systems might not be so secure if you’re not updating them often. New viruses, worms, and other malware are created every day and variations can slip by software that isn’t current.

7. Educate employees.

Develop internet security guidelines and inform employees about Internet safety, security and the latest threats, as well as what to do if they misplace information or suspect malware on their machine.
“In the event of a breach, every employee should be encouraged to come forward immediately if they spot a virus or a piece of malware rather than try to resolve it themselves or hope an intrusion or incident will blow over,” Burch says.
The infographic below, from Symantec, provides a deeper look at security issues for small companies:

----- ORIGINAL POST -----
Anyone else that is getting scammed by Frontier, let's join together. I'm actually going to do something about it.
There are archived posts here as well as many forum/blog references to the scam. I have a decade of career knowledge in networking.
I understand WAN networking concepts and the LAN<>WAN gateway communication in pretty good detail and the Frontier rep just LIED (bold faced) about fake networking terms to attempt to justify the "Wifi Router" line item listed on my bill. It's a lie and if it was some sort of "channel" fee (that's what she called it), it wouldn't be labeled "Wifi Router" on the invoice.
HERE'S THE ICING ON THE CAKE:The Frontier provided router I had, had an INBOUND firewall port 4567 permanently OPEN into the gateway. That meant that I, as a customer, using the leased equipment, could not properly secure my network. For that reason alone I changed my internet gateway. If it wasn't for that security flaw in the equipment I'm trying to return, I wouldn't have even known about this scam.Regardless, **I would like to at least get a list of /u usernames listed so when the reports start coming together I can begin getting details from all parties involved.** Please share your data and any transcripts, official CS comms, etc.
If someone from Frontier can show me, in my agreement, that the "Wifi Router" is for anything other than a "Wifi Router" then I'll shut my mouth and tell my lawyer to stop putting together the data.

2019.12.25 15:10 s_team337 Progress Report 43: Uniquely Generic (Generic Trees)

Hello, and welcome to Progress Report 41 for Calm Before the Storm. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the Generic Trees.
These trees have been made by myself and Basileios55, so we will both be describing the trees, depending on who made them.
Generic trees are placeholder focus trees that nations without their own focus trees will use. All nations without trees in 0.1 will have generic trees. Our generic trees are also Modular, meaning that they will take into account a nation’s ideology, geographic location, and economy. As such, there are many combinations of tree sections.
Nations cannot change ideology through these trees. Parts of the trees are also sometimes locked to certain ideologies, even within the group. Full tree pictures will have the most recent icons.


Far-Left: s_team337

The Far-Left Generic Tree will only be used in Leninist and Revolutionary Socialist Nations. This means only Mongolia and Tannu Tuva will start with it. Both are Leninist.
Each political tree has three sections: Government Policies (Civil Service, Internal Political Relations, etc), Social Policies, and Economic Structure. Of course, no tree is specifically bound to this structure, but that is the general idea.
As I have said, nations are locked to certain decisions based on ideology. As Mongolia and Tannu Tuva are Leninist, they are locked to certain Leninist options. Revolutionary Socialist nations are more free to choose.
Despite these restrictions, we have endeavoured to keep the amount of focuses available to each ideology equal.
The Civil Service Section of the tree starts off with a Purge. Revolutionary Socialists are free to dismiss those who are deemed ideologically unfit, whereas Leninist nations are locked into more fierce purges. After that, they will be allowed to crack down on ideological enemies. After Improving the Secret Police, Leninist Nations will continue (or begin if puppeted) to politicize the judiciary, whereas the Revolutionary Socialists can keep it mostly independent.
In the middle we have Government Structure and Social Policy. Obviously, “Follow Lenin” is exclusive to Leninism, and “Our Own Path” is exclusive to Revolutionary Socialism. Leninist Government Structures will always conform to the Soviet Model. Although we are aware that the Dictatorship of the Proletariat is a Marxist term that in theory does not necessarily mean a totalitarian state, that is what it meant in Practice, and is thus used to differentiate the Soviet Form of Government from other forms.
Revolutionary Socialists, on the other hand, have a choice between a Centralized Dictatorship (which is intentionally more vague than the Leninist Option) and a Decentralized Democracy that relies on the Workers’ Councils. After dealing with Social Reactionarism/Progressivism, Far-Left nations would be able to choose their stances on nationalism. Afterwards comes some focuses on militias and political education.
The Economic Structure tree provides the expected option between Soviet-Style Planned Economies and Vague Non-Soviet Systems. As before, Leninist nations are locked into Command Economies and Forced Collectivization while Revolutionary Socialist nations are free to choose After these and some public works, the nation will be ready to decide their policy towards unions.

Democracies: Basileios55

The Democratic tree covers all nations that start as Social Conservative, Liberal Conservative, Market Liberal, Social Liberal or Social Democrat. The tree also supports Democratic Socialists or Authoritarians if they come to power democratically.
The “Negotiate with the Opposition” branch deals with the stabilization of the country, and while the first 3 focuses are always available, “Stabilize the Country” and beyond requires the nation to have less than 80% stability. As usual, some options are blocked for certain ideologies. For example, Market Liberals can’t negotiate with the workers, and Social Conservatives can’t implement progressive ideas. All options give a bonus but also a debuff, so there’s a bit of strategy here.
In the center we can find various choices that are usually not ideology-locked and give various buffs to research, resources, law cost, political power, etc. These buffs are all temporary though, so some planning is required to optimise them.
The last tree is the Economic Policy section, with the two usual choices: Laissez-Faires or Interventionism? Market Liberals can’t pick intervention, while Social Democrats and Democratic Socialists can’t liberalise. They basically give different kinds of economic bonuses, that are mostly temporary like many bonuses granted by the generic trees.

Far-Right: s_team337:

The Far-Right tree covers the Remaining Authoritarians, Western Autocratic Despotists, and all Far-Right Authoritarian and Fascist countries.
The Civil Service section features a purge, then campaigns against ideological enemies. Authoritarian nations are able to tighten their control over the courts, while Fascists are able to go further and establish special courts specifically for show trials. As you can see, AutDes and FarAut nations can do either.
The Ideology Section is a little bit more complex. Essentially, as you move from left to right, it gets more totalitarian. After this, the nation will have to make a choice between standard Reactionary Traditionalism and the more radical Reactionary Modernism:
Traditionalism, as the description says, looks to emulate the political systems and values of the Pre-WW1 Empires. Reactionary Modernism, on the other hand, seeks to emulate pre-modern values using modern systems and terminology. For example, a 17th Century Absolute (European) Monarchy has a King or Emperor that derives their right to rule from an alleged mandate from God. A Fascist State in the 1920’s and 1930’s features a Supreme Ruler that derives their right to rule from an alleged mandate from their own strength (a personality cult). This is a key component of Fascism. For more information, see Shenfield’s Russian Fascism: Traditions, Tendencies, Movements.
The nation will then be able to continue on other ideological and bureaucratic changes.
The Economics section comes with a choice between Pro-Market and Regulatory Policies. “Empower the Corporations” means that the government moves back on regulations and intervention to allow a laissez-faires system to govern. This grants the state some Political Power (government resources can be used elsewhere) and the economy gains increased efficiency, but the state has fewer factories at its disposal and stability is hurt. “Control the Corporations” moves the government in a Corporatist direction, where the state should generally be able to make decisions in cooperation with other sectors of the nation (in this case the private sector as the laborers were generally not consulted under Authoritarian Corporatism). Such government interference in the economy gives opposite effects to the former option. These lead naturally into Deregulation and Coordination. Hopefully, these speak for themselves.
This follows into the next choice. Now, it might not make much sense for the Anti-Corporation Path to allow Privatize Services, but this happened historically in Fascist Italy and National Socialist Germany. However, both nations nationalized some industries at times. Ergo, both choices are available to all ideologies in the Group.

Eastern Absolute Monarchies: s_team337

Non-Western Absolute Monarchies will start with their own Absolute Monarchy Tree. This tree is based off of eastern nations’ (mainly Afghanistan and Iran) efforts to modernize during the early 20th century.
The Civil Service section mainly involves a choice between Western-Style Reforms or Traditional Systems. The nation will purge those who are not willing to support the monarch’s positions, which will allow the monarch to restructure the bureaucracy the way they see fit. At the end of the tree, the Monarchy, as an institution, will have been properly prepared for the modern era.
The ideology tree is not locked between different ideologies, since the only valid ideology for this tree is Autocratic Despotism. It is a simple choice between modernizing political life by centralizing political activity around the Monarch and their Cabinet (while enacting social reforms) or basing it around the traditional institutions of the Nobility and Clergy. Curtailing the old institutions will give you more ability to act politically, but slightly decrease your authority in the long-term, while empowering generally has the opposite effect. (We are aware that none of the countries with this tree are Christian; the icon is a placeholder that has since been replaced, as the full tree shows).
The economic section follows a similar theme: do you wish to introduce modern industry, or leave the economy with a traditionalist agrarian structure? If you choose to industrialize, you must choose whether to engage in economic dirigisme, or allow the free market to grow your nation: Meanwhile, maintaining the Traditional System will grant you more stability, but will also force you to rely on the West for modern weapons.

Economics: Basileios 55

One problem with the vanilla generic tree is that it is too strong for some countries like Nepal or Oman and too weak for countries like Spain. We aim to fix that problem in 2 ways:
First, we have two different economic trees. One economic tree for Europe and the Americas, and another one for Asia and Africa. ( As usual, China is not included ). This allows to have more flavor in the trees, and better adapt its effects.
Second, the trees have more restrictions, meaning nations with few factories will miss out on the best bonuses, adding some balance to the game.
So let’s start with the “Developed” Economy tree, for the Americas, Europe, Australia and NZ. The first part deals with a problem that almost all countries with this tree faced: the Great Depression. It also provides access to the 4th research slot, provided the country has enough factories. After completing that tree, then some more significant reforms and projects can be started, with many research buffs and the 5th research slot awaiting countries with enough factories (more factories needed than in base game). Military factories are here too, in the same number as vanilla.
The “Underdeveloped” Economic tree is bigger, to reflect that countries with this tree will need more time and effort to build a strong economy. As you can see, it is divided into 3 parts. The first part is open for all countries and grants very weak bonuses: 2 infrastructure, 1 civilian factory, stability, etc. Those countries that build enough factories can gain access to the 2nd part, that gives better and more varied bonuses, like a research slot ( the 3rd, usually ), construction buffs, and factories. Finally, those who manage to build a lot of factories can gain access to the 3rd part, with very strong focuses and the 4th research slot.

Military: Basileios55

The Military tree is shared by all countries in the world. It is divided into 3 branches, as usual: navy, air force and army. Let’s start with the airforce tree (Screenshots taken playing as Sweden). Military trees are usually very straightforward and don’t need a lengthy explanation: it gives research bonuses in the chosen fields, with some airbases and air xp thrown in. A final choice allows countries with a coastline to beef up their naval aviation, while those who don’t have coastline can get rockets instead (provided they have enough factories).
The Army tree is very flexible and has trees for all 4 land doctrines. They are however blocked by factory count and manpower, with Grand Battleplan open for everyone. As usual, it has research bonuses, army experience, and a military factory.
Finally, we come to the Navy tree. It mostly provides research bonuses and experience (no surprises here) with a final choice to be made between more dockyards or doctrine research bonuses. The entire tree is blocked, as you might expect, for landlocked nations.

Foreign Policy:

Foreign Policy in a generic tree? Yes, that’s right. It will be very basic, but it will allow generic countries to align with a great power and, if applicable, join a faction and enter the fight! They are regional, with trees for Europe, Americas, Asia and finally one for colonial states like Jordan, Newfoundland or Syria.

Europe: Basileios55

The **European foreign tree has 3 paths:
Peaceful Neutrality gives economic bonuses (temporary, as you must know at this point) while Armed Neutrality gives military bonuses, a permanent buff to division defense in core territory and mobilization speed. However, if you want to enter the big fight (without being attacked, that is) you have to take a side.
Approaching either power will improve their opinion of you and will also facilitate trade. The military tech bonus received after completing “Military Cooperation” is also determined by the great power you pick.
Finally, some countries will have special decisions to join factions, and those will demand to take a side and do it for the chosen faction. That way, generic countries are actually playable!

Americas: Basileios55

The Americas tree has also 3 branches: Peaceful and Armed Neutrality we have already seen in Europe, and the “Ties with the USA” section. Basically, countries under the Monroe doctrine can choose to align with the USA at the cost of your people being angry at you for giving up sovereignty (stability losses) and the US becoming more and more influential in decision-making, with the final focus removing the possibility of refusing American demands to join the Allies, for example. However, it also gives several bonuses, and if you plan to join the Allies anyway it can be a good choice. Here we have the tree.

Asia: s_team337

Asian nations will get a nearly identical tree to the Europeans, with Far-Off Germany swapped out for Japan:

Colonial Nations: s_team337

Colonial nations will use the Colonial Foreign Policy Tree. It comes in three sections. The option on the left is to draw closer to your overlord in order to get military and economic bonuses from them at the cost of autonomy. The option in the center is to keep the status quo for stability bonuses. The option on the right is to try and gain autonomy (Dominions cannot go down this path). While it gives more autonomy, it comes at the cost of military and economic maluses. The end of each tree will give the nation more parties in their coalition.
British Colonies get a slightly different tree. While the general idea is the same, the effects are of a somewhat different magnitude.

Release Date: s_team337

We know that many have been waiting patiently for over two years now as CBtS has been in development. In that vein, have been working as much as we can to deliver. However, there must come a time when we should actually deliver something. That is why we would like to announce that the release of the first Beta Version of CBtS will drop in August, 2020! The exact date will remain private in case a situation arises where we cannot physically upload the mod and thus need a couple more days.
The First Release will be a Hard Release, meaning that whatever is done will be in the mod. Incomplete nations will be given a generic tree. This means, as an example, that the German Civil War and Leftist Germany will not be in until the Second Major Version, as we will simply not have time to make it.
But we know you want as much content as possible? How can we live up to those expectations? This is where you come in! As always, we need artists, writers, and coders! The application form is here, in PR 8.5.
Don’t know how to code? Get started using the Hoi4 Wiki! This link has just about everything one needs to get started on content-making! And of course, many tutorials are available on the internet, so try searching and see what you get.

"Your prize tech man died in flames. That life is gone. All that there is now is his ghost."

Basic Info

  • Real name: Unknown
  • Aliases: Phantasm, John Morley, Casper
  • Species: Human
  • Nationality: Undisclosed
  • Height: 5' 11"/ 1.80m
  • Weight: 175lbs/79kgs
  • Powers: Intangibility, invisibility, flight/levitation, energy projection, data assimilation, dissemination, interception & manipulation, technological manipulation, image projection & manipulation, magnetism, skilled tech & IT engineer
  • Affiliations: Thunderbolts; formerly Black Cat's Gang, A.I.M., Roxxon Oil Corporation, Omnisapient Systems


Ghost is an infamous and highly skilled corporate saboteur; he despises the huge, multinational companies that treat regular workers and people as dispensable pawns in their endeavours for greater turnover and profit margins; Ghost believes not only that all these organisations need to be destroyed, but that he is the one who can do it. This has resulted in him being extremely paranoid, seeing conspiracies almost everywhere and rarely, if ever, trusting anybody other than himself.
Ghost was originally a highly gifted IT engineer working for the corporation Omnisapient systems where he played a major part in developing a processor that could turn intangible before overheating; tech he would later work into his ghost suit. Eventually he would develop a relationship with a female co-worker, and everything seemed to be going well, until his lover was killed in a gas explosion. Losing all motivation and desire to connect with anyone else, he delved further into his work until he learned how to connect his mind to Omnisapient's system and bathe in their data. Here is where he learned the truth: that his love interest had been paid to have a relationship with him to keep him happy, and not only that but Omnisapient had subsequently arranged the gas explosion that killed her. Realising he had been nothing more than a disposable pawn in the corporations machinations, Ghost went about tracking down and killing the members of the board one by one, even managing to get aboard a private plane with one of the board members and crash it into a mountain and causing another's private boat to collide with an ocean liner.. Ghost deleted all traces and records of his previous life, thinking of that person to have died when he was betrayed. Now all that remains is his Ghost.

2019.10.22 01:12 Deta_Leader Trying to dig up all Power Glove Projects, anyone care to help? [Power Glove Master Thread]

Hi there, I've been a long time listener of the scene, but I figured I finally need some help from you guys.
So what's the deal?
Power Glove have been some in this scene forever and have arguably shaped the genre that we enjoy so much here. However, many of their tracks have never gotten an "official" release and rot away on the internet, barely known. While I know that they've had a project running on MySpace years ago, I frankly never used MySpace and I feel like I wouldn't be able to find anything important.
I want to change that - however I don't think I have all the information needed. I'll try and run down all releases I know.
The First ever Release I have been able to uncover is this short clip, released on their YouTube Channel. While not on any sort of Album, there doesn't seem to be any more of this snippet. Christmas Special indeed!
EP1- All the songs originally released on May 25, 2010. The Album is widely available, including Spotify and their Bandcamp. Originally the EP was titled 'So Bad', but it seems to have been renamed later on.
April 2011 brought us TELECOM, which so far I have only discovered on their Soundcloud Page. With the release of the film 'Hobo with a Shotgun' in May, a track called 'Hunters' came out. It has not had an official release. However, the song appears to have been ripped and made its way onto YouTube. Later in October Crypt was released. Crypt and Hunters will likely get a new remix with their official release on the upcoming Throwback EP.
In early 2012 NRW released a track called Street Desire. It is the only source for this song that I have been able to find. Also in 2012 Hot for Destiny was released. The only Source I have discovered is the NRW release. However not there indicated, I believe this to be a Remix of Tally Isham's Song of the same name. The only other correlation I could find is this picture. October 2012 we saw the release of their Remix for Kristine's 'Modern Love'. It has been released to Spotify. Lastly, a snippet for Crypt 2 was released on their website. A full release still has not happened, though I hope for a release on the Throwback EP. [Update: Crypt 2 has been reworked into the track Nightmare]
The arguably biggest Synth Release of 2013, their Soundtrack for Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. While a handful of songs is missing, the majority of the tracks is on the official release. The unreleased Songs can be extraced from the game files, however most of them have found their way onto YouTube. If you want to listen without a quality loss, I recommend digging the files up from the game. Part of the Blood Dragon Soundtrack was a remix of their earlier song, 'Hunters'.
Also released in 2013 was the anthology movie 'The ABCs of Death'. Their Song Vengeance was used for the short 'Y for Youngbuck'. NRW released an unedited audio rip of the Short, without removing the scream that wasn't part of the actual song. A full and remastered release is slated for the Throwback EP. Finally, October 2013 saw the Soundcloud release of the Classic Motorcycle Cop. The Song has since been released as part of EP2.
August 2014 saw the release of the Power Glove Remix of the song '4am' by The Fauns. It was later officially released with EP2.
April 2015, EP2 releases on various platforms. In July they contribute to Sonic Mayhem's Futureland.
In June 2016 Trials of the Blood Dragon and its Soundtrack release. A few songs absent from the digital Album can be found on the CD release or by accessing the "Club Rewards" Tab on the Ubisoft Club. Included with those Club Rewards is 'Clutch (Dragon Mix)'. A different mix of the song would be released later on. 2016 also saw of 6 loop snippets for an upcoming Album. Most of these would see their full release only in 2019. The earlier mixes can be found on their YouTube channel.
In 2017 the song Fatal Affair is released as part of the soundtrack for the Documentary The Rise of Synths.
In May 2018 the Song Loaded is released as part of Image Comics' The Weatherman Soundtrack. An official release happened in 2019.
After a long wait and various teasers and singles, the Album Playback releases in May 2019. However, not inlcuded on the Album is the song Rivals, which was created with ALEX and Tokyo Rose. In October 2019 the track Phantasy was released as part of the Documentary In Search of Darkness.
Last, but not least, their latest EP, Throwback, releases on October 25th of this year.
Now, where can you help?
I found a song, where I can't really identify if it's an original Power Glove song or where it was released initially. It appears to be called You Were the One. While digging through their MySpace I have been able to uncover a few pictures, however I am not sure if they actually relate to any songs. One is called Altered Fire. Another Return. There also seem to be covers for Fantastic Lover, Maximum Potential and Street Desire.
Have anything that I don't? Know something that I don't? Please let me know! I'd like to keep this post up to date, if at all possible.
Lastly, as usual, support your artists. Thanks for reading!

2019.09.27 01:06 ryu289 Why are homophobes willing to make up shit about homosexuals?
Kosilek is serving life in a men’s prison for strangling her wife, Cheryl Kosilek, to death soon after she began to transition from her male identity in 1990.[That’s right, her MALE identity! So both of these queers are men and one of them killed the other, before deciding to falsely pose as a woman as well!!!!]
No, no, he misread the situation. They were talking about this person transitioning, not his wife:
Oh and the wife assulted him.
A court has overturned the demand that American tax-payers fund a sex-change operation for a prison inmate. We hope this is a sign of the winds of change blowing across America, The madness of the LGBT era could be on the way out. But just listen to this story and how crazy the queers are. Robert Kosilek murdered his “wife” who was really a man, now pretends he is a woman too… VGB says “transgender” is a fraud. It is not a medical treatment and the taxpayer should never have to pay for it, even for a law-abiding citizen, let alone a vicious murderer. In fact doctors should be banned from carrying out such unnecessary operations. Robert Kosilek is mad and crazy queers should not be making our laws
Right...because a) this guy killed in sel defense & b)
There can be no doubt about the guilt of Shrien Dewani after CCTV footage showed him in a hotel talking to the man later convicted of murdering his wife Annie. And there can be no doubt about his motives. Shrien Dewani was a homosexual who should never have married this poor girl in the first place. He paid assassins in South Africa to murder her in 2010 so that he could go on with his life of deviance and revolting perversion.
Except the CCTV footage was doctored:
VGB says: it will be a shame on South Africa if this man is acquitted. He is as guilty as hell and Annie Dewani was a VICTIM OF GAY BULLYING.
And off course it wasn't the case here.
Every time a pedo rapes boys he is accused of being gay as well, which is bs:
Now just think about this. Why would they drive all the way out there to ask him that? It looks to me as if John West must have known Evans and may even have been one of his previous “clients”. It was not likely he would proposition a random stranger in the countryside. But West was not in the mood. Maybe he was homosexual, or had been, but he did not want to pay for any services at that moment.Maybe he had no money. Maybe Evans asked too much.
VGB says: Hard to feel sorry for them isn’t it? If you were a member of John West’s family you would not be weeping for these two revolting thugs. Whether or not he was a fellow-homosexual (and the fact that he was found without his trousers suggests that he may have been) this was a callous and cowardly murder. Looks like one more example of how queers bully everyone including each other.
Even though two were married with wives...
LGBTs perpetrate millions of acts of harm and violence in society, constantly, mostly with impunity.
From the study he uses...
Typically, heterosexual victims do not report abuse to the police because: (a) they do not believe the police will help; (b) they fear retaliation; (c) they do not want to get abusers in trouble; and (d) they think it is a private matter (Greenfield & Rand, 1998). Same-sex battering victims face additional obstacles to reporting with the threat of “outing” or making the lesbian and gay victims’ sexual orientation known to the public (Kuehnle & Sullivan, 2003). In addition, the gay community distrusts the police (Kirby, 1994; Letellier, 1994, Reed, 1989). Reed (1989) reported that victims of same-sex battering were both physically and verbally re-victimized by the police.
And later on...
Recent reviews suggest that the prevalence of IPV in same-sex couples is as high as the prevalence of IPV for women in opposite-sex relationships:
He cannot read apparently...
However, there are other studies that show something very interesting: a significant percentage of the women who have had relationships with both sexes started out having heterosexual relationships. Then they suffered violence. Then they turned to women. Isn’t it quite reasonable to assume the experience of violence they had with a man impacted their psychology to deform it towards wanting to be with a woman as perhaps what they would think is a non-violent partner?
So most ipv comes from opposite sex partners? Makes sense:
So gays are beaten up by straights...
Off course they make up shit like using the gay panic defense:
Or here:
The two black girls were not taken in by his false eyelashes, make-up and high heels, they saw at once he was a man, with stubble, however mixed-up he was about it, and they resented the way he had been behaving in the restaurant. They were there with their boyfriends and they accused Polis of staring at their men and trying to pick them up. they were jealous girlfriends? Let's see the police report...
said that she was going to use a restroom, when a female individual spat in her face. Then she and another female person started attacking Polis.
Ah...they followed her in...
What was not reported in the press was that Polis had a criminal record for attacking other people. In September 2006 in Baltimore he was charged with assaulting a woman called Samantha Stockman. The defence managed to get him acquitted. Again in 2008, Polis was arrested for beating up elderly man and this time he was convicted, but by means of plea bargaining the charge was reduced to “disorderly conduct” with a minimum sentence. He was actually a prostitute and a junkie, resorting to mugging when he could not pay for his drugs any other way. He never spent more than a few weeks in prison
Where did you get this? Your links show she was only guilty of disorderly conduct...and cops are biased against trans people.
Also she got no sentence but a fine...
The “gay” media is always making out that homosexuals and transsexuals are victims. No way – the truth is that they bully other people. Transsexuals get into violent situations because they behave in anti-social, unacceptable ways and violate the bounds of decency.
Like which to use the bathroom that matches their identity?
Stupid media like Wikipedia and Huffington Post talked about it as if Polis really was a woman, rather than being a disturbed person with delusions.
Transgender isn't a delusion:
You thought a Health Commissioner would be a responsible, caring person who did not take risks? Not when they are queer. Here is one who lied about having HIV and passed on the disease to two other men on the queer pickup circuit. VGB says “My, my, they are such nice people!”
A San Francisco judge in 2003 found insufficient evidence to support charges that a former San Francisco health commissioner had intentionally infected sexual partners with the virus that causes AIDS.
Homophobes are illiterate apparently. Oh and he should ask why there is a heterosexual epidemic of aids in Russia.
But Hill’s attorney, Peter Fitzpatrick, argued in court papers and before Tsenin that there was not enough evidence to show his client had intended to infect anyone. He said that the contacts between Hill and the two alleged victims, Thomas Lister andChristopher M., were “normal relationships.” [ As normal as hell. ]
As in no gay sex?
Ah, Brendan Bain:
This ignores straights on tinder...
Thinks husband and wife should be on all legal papers thus can't be called husband or wife at home:
Jared Fogle molested little girls only fyi... A twofer in this one:
This one thinks homosexuality isn't viable from an evolutionary perspective nor does it have a genetic basis...wrong:
VGB: Here we go again. “Waa, waa, waa, waa!” “I can’t have my way so I’m going to scream and yell and beat my head on the floor until you give in.” Oh please, spare us your lame ass “born this way” mantra. Enough is enough. Go back to your closet, leave the queerness in there then you step out and get a damn life!
So you give special rights and privileges for straight couples only in violation of the first and 14th amendments?
VGB: Funniest damn things I’ve read in quite a while. Seems that if anyone mocks queer marriage, the queers get all testy and pissy about it. Well, hell, they mock real marriage (one man, one woman) all the time so I see no problem with a little ribbing here. Rub in in guys, the queers deserve to see their own bullshit
You mean mock how homosexuals are treated like second class citizens and fight for equal rights?
Sigh...I have to show this again:
VGB: Bullying Prevention Month Mayor? Where the hell is your brain carpet muncher? Your head must be between some carpet munchers legs. No wonder you can’t f’ing think straight. How in the hell did you even get elected witch? Oh, right, all the queers voted for your sorry ass. It figures. Houston TX is in big trouble with you around.
VGB: Yep, no slippery slope here. Pedophiles now think they have to have special rights. Who’s next….the one’s out screwing and being screwed by animals? Would not surprise me in the least.
Margo Kaplan, who teaches law at Rutgers University, used The New York Times as a platform to opine about the stigma pedophilia carries. The stigma, she laments, makes it difficult for adults with sexual attractions to children to get help
This is true:
They are also racist:
VGB: Poor widdle queers….always a victim…like the dumb nigers in Ferguson that caused all the problems. They were not the victims….they were the victimizers just the queers.
Look who's talking? Poor Christains...
VGB: Yet another Gay Rights Activist did it all for the sake of raping little boys. This is from WinteryKnight who’s research broke it that Mark Newton and Peter Truong (along with the Quadrant) were Gay Rights activists campaigning for gay marriage “for the sole purpose of Sexual Exploitation [of little boys]” to quote QLD Police Task Force Argos… Be sure to see all the MSM links he cites on his blogs. Will update with pictures shortly! Done! Sigh:
Yet again, a member of the glbt community utterly destroys a safe haven for children, and gives the phrase "tickle me Elmo," a whole new and disgusting meaning. This homophile, Kevin Clash, has admitted to sexual contact with a 16-year-old boy when he was 45!!
Wrong again:
This commercial is so quick, concise, and to-the-point that the homofascists already hate it. LOL!
By using a man in drag as a steryotype?
This is what happens when sexual sanity is abandoned. First, he doesn't want to be a man anymore. Now he wants to create a harem of little girls. And, before I get hate emails. I know that not all "transgendered" men want to molest children. Click here for the full story.
The person he is talking about isn't even a pedophile:
Apparently lesbians shouldn't be allowed to kiss Story says boys can choose to marry boys and girls...homophobes think boys are told they love boys because they play with them when it didn't happen...also the story and school are anyomous..
I love statistics because they enable me to speak accurately. This number, 99.93%, is a cherished piece of information for me.
OVER 99.9% of us are born male or female. That's it people. That's science. That's reality. The glbt community hates the reality of the Word of God, and now, science. Dear member and supporter of the glbt community... Snap out of it.
Where did you get your stat?
We're approaching the tenth anniversary (Sept.26th) of the murder of Jesse Dirkhising. This young boy was held hostage and repeatedly raped by a pair of gay men and died as a result of their raping him, yet his death received less than one percent of the coverage that the death of Matthew Shepard did. It's clear to me that the mainstream media didn't want to appear "homophobic" by shining the light of truth on this child's death. Amazing. The GLBT community is so feared by the mainstream media that two homosexual men can literally rape a young boy to death and be ignored by mainstream (ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC) news sources. This is the type of injustice that empowers me, the rape of this young boy.
Guess what pedophila has nothing to do with homosexuality!
Stfu! Ignoring how 18 year old boys often date 14 year old girls without consequences...
Off course no one got away with beastality... Defends a lying preacher:
And yes sir you are bigoted... Stop pretending your reasoning isn't bigoted. You are lying and thus doing more than disagreeing...
What you see in this picture is a man who decided he wanted to be a woman. After a series of cosmetic operations and silicone injections this is the result. Vile, vile vile. Makes you want to run a mile."
Look here moron:
Mark Smout of England, UK, is a horrible internet troll and oh by the way he is “gay”. His way of expressing himself is to send people delightful snapshots of his own penis, like the one below.
Except it came from here:

2019.09.19 03:14 tenhourguy Remake List

Here's a list of notable Arcanists remakes. This post should be revised over time.

Active Remakes

The REAL Arc2 (TRA2)


This is the remake most faithful to the original game.


Kosmos' Sandbox


Kosmos has developed a client for playing the single-player portions of multiplayer Arcanists games. Included is Arcanists. One bonus to this is an internet connection is not required to play! If you want to experience the original single-player portion of Arcanists once more, with all the members content unlocked, now is your chance! Not a remake, which makes it rad, even if a little misplaced by being in this list.




I think the developers now consider this less of a remake, but it's definitely inspired by Arcanists, so let's throw it in here anyway. The game has cool particle effects.


An Alchemist's Apocalypse (AAA)


This project is still in closed alpha, but keep an eye on it. They have a dragon!
We want to stay very close to the original Arcanists while still creating a completely new game.
This means that we are looking to have the same mechanics (although we're not going to replicate the glitches) but don't want to use the same graphics or names.
We will try to add the same spells and books that Arcanists had, but we will need new names and graphics for each of them. We should probably even consider changing the words "book" and "spell".




Elementalists's most distinguishing mechanic is the ability to cast multiple spells in a single turn. This allows you to combo multiple spells together in numerous and creative ways.




Fuck this project. They silence the existence of others. It's the most popular yet isn't progressing.
We, at RP1 Gaming, are a small team of 2 developers, and 1 artist who are long-time fans of Arcanists. After hearing of FunOrb's shutdown date (8/7/2018), we decided to re-create this game. We believe that Jagex did wrong when running FunOrb, by not releasing frequent updates, and most importantly, not listening to the players!




Stemming from a spell collection system in the ArcMages Discord server, this is a text-based game in which you have Arcanists-style duels, all inside Discord.


Retried Remakes

Waiting Wizards


An Arcanists-inspired school project with an interesting energy mechanic.




Arcanists Remake 2018 (Spellbook)


Arcanists Revival


What is a JAR?

A wide-mouthed cylindrical container made of glass or pottery, especially one used for storing food. To run one, download Java. Ubuntu users can execute sudo apt install default-jre.
