[Mod Informed] Participant Recruitment: Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19

2020.10.21 12:28 M2MResearch [Mod Informed] Participant Recruitment: Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19

Hello! I am a student researcher at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan). My team is conducting a study titled “Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19”. Our study looks into the experiences of subgroups of the Asian community that are often missed out in Asian community research in Canada. We would like to find out whether coming from these ethnic communities would create a different experience for our participants during CoVid-19. We are also interested to learn if these experiences differ when participants belong to a minority sexual orientation.
You may participate in our study if you identify with either Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Southeast Asia as your heritage culture. Southeast Asian countries include Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Brunei and/or Timor-Leste. Participants identifying as e.g., Singaporean/Malaysian/Indonesian Chinese/Indians may also participate. We welcome temporary residents (e.g., international students), immigrants and first/second/third/later- generation Canadians who identify with these heritage cultures to join our study. Participants must be at least aged 19. You must also identify as being a man-who-has-sex-with-men (MSM) to join our study. You must have been in Canada for at least 2 years. You must be able to read and speak in English.
We will be interviewing participants on their experiences as Asian MSM. We will ask questions about their experiences before and after CoVid-19 began. We will be interviewing over audio call on Skype for Business between September 2020 and March 2021. We have chosen this software as it is hosted on UBC servers, hence maximizing confidentiality. The interview will be recorded on QuickTime. Some of the questions may result in unpleasant memories, especially when they relate to CoVid-19. If you prefer not to discuss your experiences with CoVid, you may not want to take part in our study. If you do want to take part, you can request to take a break, skip any questions or end the study at any point in time. The interviews will take about 2 hours in total.
We are unfortunately unable to provide any remuneration for participating in our study. Should you be interested, please do not post comments on our post. Instead, please click on the following link: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0AItWBRmUD3RQ21.

2020.10.20 13:12 gfishbone The Legend of Penthesilea, a history

Unlike Hippolyte, who is linked to the stories of Heracles and Theseus, Penthesilea was an original part of the Trojan War cycle in a tradition that goes back thousands of years.
As the Classical world focused on the works of Homer, other parts of the Epic Cycle faded into the shadows. But despite the challenges of time, Penthesilea's story was rescued from obscurity to be retold and reinterpreted in modern stories, animation, and video games. I'm working on a Penthesilea novel myself, which is why I've compiled an extensive history of this character.

THE PRE-HOMERIC PENTHESILEIAD

The pre-Homeric Trojan War epics, including the story of Penthesileia, probably began as a body of oral tales with regional variations and roots in the 2nd Millennium BCE Proto-Indo-European tradition. This epic battle story, not necessarily pinned to a specific location, has cognates in Germanic and Hindu traditions among others.
The proto-Greek Mycenaeans attached these stories to a specific city in Asia Minor by the Late Bronze Age or during the so-called Greek Dark Age. Fragmentary evidence hints at variations where Penthesileia arrives before the death of Hector, where Penthesiliea defeats Achilles in battle, and where Penthesileia and Achilles tragically kill each other and are united for a happy afterlife together.
The Trojan War was believed to be entirely fictional until late 19th Century archeologists discovered the ruins of a city that matched Homeric descriptions of Troy, although there's no direct evidence of conflict between Bronze Age Ilion and an Achaean invasion fleet. More recently, genetic analysis has shown that the remains of some Bronze Age warriors on the Asian steppes, initially assumed to be men, also include women, and that some of the female remains show damage consistent with battle wounds. The female warriors of this culture were one possible source of Greek myths about all-woman Amazon armies, although it's unlikely that actual Amazon warriors ever battled against the ancient Greeks.

THE PENTHESILEIAD OF ARCTINUS

Homer, whether as a single bard or as a multi-generational school of rhapsodes, is credited with codifying the Iliad and Odyssey in something approaching their current forms, probably in the 8th Century BCE. The Aethiopis, the story that directly follows the Iliad in the Epic Cycle, was believed to have been first codified by Homer's student, Arctinus of Miletus. The Aethiopis began with Arctinus's Penthesileiad, the story of the Amazon warrior Penthesilea, who fought on the side of the Trojans. Unfortunately, the Aethiopis and other non-Homeric epics have been lost to us except for their descriptions and some fragments. In Ancient Greece, when the Penthesileiad of Arctinus was still being recited, pottery decorations often depicted the fight between Achilles and Penthesileia or the game of dice played by Achilles and Ajax. These images outlived the text, and offer tantalizing clues about how the Amazon queen's story was told.

THE PENTHESILEIAD OF QUINTUS

Virgil, in the 1st Century CE, refers to Penthesileia in his Aeneid and may have used her as a template for the woman warrior, Camilla. However, the most detailed and complete Penthesileiad that still exists is the first book of the Posthomerica of Quintus of Smyrna, tentatively dated to the 4th Century CE. We don't know much about Quintus, except that he claimed to hail from Roman-occupied Anatolia, near the spot where the ruins of Troy were located, that he wrote in Greek, and that he may have had access to sources and traditions that are no longer available, perhaps even a copy of the Arctinus's Aethiopis. The Quintan Penthesileiad, along with the rest of his Posthomerica, was preserved by Byzantine scholars. Manuscripts were rediscovered in the Middle Ages. Translations were made into French and German, but an English translation would remain unavailable into the early 20th Century.
I have Arthur S. Way's 1913 translation of Posthomerica I on my website, but there are more readable versions available from libraries (or, most appropriately, from Amazon). Personally, I like the 1968 translation by Frederick M. Combellack.

THE MEDIEVAL PENTHESILEIAD

Medieval folk tales reimagined Queen Penthesilea as a lady knight in armor, with all the heraldry of an imagined Amazon nation. As the Trojans had become firmly identified with the founding of Rome, thanks to Virgil, their Amazon allies were now regarded as loyal and sympathetic allies to a lost cause that was later redeemed by history. New traditions evolved, including a romantic connection between Penthesilea and Hector, the Amazon queen's chivalrous quest to avenge her lover's death, her own eventual death at the hands of Neoptolemus, and an honorable burial on the banks of the Thermodon River. Examples in this genre include Roman de Troie (1160) by Benoît de Sainte-Maure, City of Ladies (1405) by Christine de Pizan, and the Troy Book (1420) of John Lydgate.

THE PENTHESILEIAD OF HEINRICH VON KLEIST

Playwright Heinrich von Kleist's 1808 stage play, "Penthesilea," may have been inspired by an early German edition of the Quintan Penthesileiad or by other sources. Kleist's Amazons, led by Queen Penthesilea, are drawn to battlefields because, in their culture, they can only mate with warrior men they have personally defeated in combat. Descending upon the Troad plain like salmon in a spawning season, the Amazons issue personal challenges to the best fighters on both sides in a frantic quest to defeat, dominate, and mate with them. As in traditional tellings, Penthesilea and Achilles fall in love at first sight. Something of a courtship ensues, but the cultural gap between the Amazons and Achaeans proves too great. Wacky miscommunications and misunderstandings ruin any chance these two warriors may have had for a healthy relationship until, in the end, Penthesilea kills Achilles and feasts on his raw flesh. Feeling remorseful afterward, Penthesilea literally wills herself to death.
Kleist's version explicitly spotlights the horrific end scene of some retellings, in which Achilles violates the corpse of Penthesilea after slaying her. By providing a turnabout, Kleist allows Penthesilea to be the one to win the battle, to experience the passion-driven madness, and to deal with the messy aftermath. However, as the play's experimental format was deemed "unstagable" as an early 19th Century production, Kleist's Penthesileiad was not performed before an audience until 1876, in a simplified form.

THE PENTHESILEIAD OF LAURENCE BINYON

British poet and dramatist Laurence Binyon (1869-1943) is best known today for war poetry about World Wars I and II, but his early interest in the Trojan War and knowledge of the Quintan Posthomerica are evident from his 1905 poem, "Penthesilea," and 1906 stage play, "Paris and Oenone." These works presented readers with ancient stories that were new to them, and unavailable at the time from any other source in English. Binyon's character studies of Achilles, Priam, Andromache, and Paris paved the way for the first English translation of the Quintan Posthomerica, although these stories would remain less well known than the Iliad and Odyssey of Homer.
I have a copy of Lawrence Binyon's "Penthesilea" on my website.

THE MYTHOVERSAL PENTHESILEIAD

The Mythoversal Penthesileiad is my version, which I'm releasing online in weekly installments. I'm staying true to the core of the Quintan Posthomerica while taking inspiration from Binyon's character studies and providing better foreshadowing future events in the Epic Cycle. Where the Posthomerica has been described as "The Trojan War as directed by Quentin Tarantino" for its celebration of violence, I'm channeling the fight scenes into a commentary on love, war, and patriotism that will hopefully resonate with modern readers.

PENTHESILEA IN TOTAL WAR

This one you know. For me, it's been a special treat to see Penthesilea rendered as a playable character in an immersive environment that looks and feels so much like the legends of Troy. Hats off to the game developers for all the little details they got so right!
And the legend goes on....

2020.10.10 09:26 NajsBejbe 100K Giveaway - [Old Money Style When Money Speaks For Itself]

Old Money Mood Board

[Mood Board] https://imgur.com/a/18xGZw8
Dear Ladies,
It's autumn time. I enjoy myself with a cup of hot chai latte that fills the apartment with warm aroma of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and honey. It made me thinking, first leaves are falling- I need to adjust my style. What comes to mind is wool, cardigans, cashmere and tweed. That means- Old Money Style. British country, equestrian sports, royalty, old Ralph Lauren campaigns, timeless pieces. Fashion that is quiet, durable, high quality and comfortable. Just perfect for current season- of the year and as well in fashion.
I want you to enjoy these inspirations under the blanket. Dim your lights, burn scented candles, get some warm beverage play the tune.
Now, this is how it all started: Paris Hilton documentary was recently released, Rebel Wilson started dating Jacob Busch and I got lost in my new book "Pretty Things" by J. Brown. As you might know Paris and her sister Nicky come from Hilton Hotels money, however Nicky herself married creme de la creme of the Old Money- James Rothschild. Jacob Busch on the other hand comes from the Budweiser founder's family. If this is not old money, then what is? Sum up all of these names, add to it current trends and vintage vibes and what you get is my Old Money inspired mood board. Combination of current trends such as quilting, oversized shirts, leather boots, **oversized vests.**Main focus is the spirit of autumn in the British countryside. No logos, no visible branding, just timeless quite style. Where you can enjoy preppy pearl earrings with classic blue cotton shirt and leather loafers.

*** Shop the style ***

Gucci Loafers Brown alternative
Burberry Brown Quilted Fitted Jacket
Ralph Lauren Cashmere Sweater
Dubarry Leather Outdoor Boots
Ralph Lauren Shirt
Ralph Lauren White Wide Pants
Alexander McQueen Double Belt

** BONUS**

These items you can find at our TS (Anna, Linda, Fisherman, Tong), you just need to ask. In my opinion these still match the style from my mood board so enjoy!
Gucci Loafers
Burberry Trench Coat The Kensington
Burberry Black Short Quilted Jacket
MaxMara Bondone (both TS Linda and Anna have these)
Gucci Cardigan
Chanel 2.55 bag
Cartier Panthere Gold Watch
Burberry Wide Quilted Jacket (brown)
Chanel Ballerinas
Ray-Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses
Balmain Blazer
Ralph Lauren Buttoned Pullover (Taobao)
RL Polo T-shirt (Taobao)
RL Oversized Retro shirt (Taobao)

Mini-Review

Gucci Loafers - Jordaan Horsebit
Seller - TS Linda
Price - 650 RMB
Although I live in China I still have to wait for them so unfortunatelly I cannot include the review. Instead I will review my new sunglasses that perfectly fit the Old Money look. They cover half of your face and make you look mysterious. Their minimalistic branding fit the silent "rich" style.
Introducing "Anoushka" Sunglasses by TOM FORD.
Model
Price: 480 RMB
Seller: Mei wechat: L13170969654 She was recommended to me by one of our TS.
Sunglasses came pretty fast. She said that they have UV protection but I haven't checked. They seem heavy and lux. Definitely beautiful- especially because they have two-tonned glass which give "expensive" vibe. Minus: They are falling of my face. I have pretty small face and very narrow nose. Because the model is so big and they are so heavy they are sliding off my face. I need to figure out what to do with that because I definitely what to wear them in the future. The box as you can see on the photos has scratched the logo but it doesn't bother me. Surely they are not packed 1:1.
In order to full fill the mood to the top I also suggest these videos, books, and movies:
This is Paris
Crazy Rich Asians (Try the book first)
Rothchild Family Documentary

2020.10.09 22:23 annalog96 Be wary of men with racial fetishes/comments towards ANY race

While black and Asian women obviously get this MUCH worse, white women don't be complacent. You will be fetishised for your race too! (e.g. in Britain/Europe especially, some asian men see 'white women as whores')
So I was having a nice chat with a doctor on OLD, all seemed well, then we chatted briefly about religion and he said he had a strict religious asian background, but how that all changed when he "found booze and white women" and became 'spiritual'. Then when I called him out on it (just with an innocent sounding "white women?" reply) he said he was "joking" yet STILL proceeded to 'joke' how "white women have loose sexual morals" and said he got horny and rebelled from his religion because he wanted to "sample the forbidden fruit". GROSS!!!???
But omg he's jOKinG so CHiLl and said to me how he's a 'hyper liberal hippie-esque ex Christian' which is why it's SUCH a funny and ironic JOKEEE and "if you have this delicate a humour, then we're definitely not a match mate". WOW.
I would never make racial comments/'jokes' about any group? ESPECIALLY in the context of dating. ESPECIALLY in my first few messages to someone? It just makes you sound gross and objectifying.
I don't know if this is more a British thing, where we're brought up to not really discuss race and see everyone equally (and yes, being 'colour blind' has it's own issues...) whereas the US seems more open about it. But in Britain, the attitude of 'white girls are whores' has become more prevalent and has repeatedly been the justification IN COURT from pedophile rape gangs to traffic and rape 10,000s of white young girls over the past decade. Maybe I should just take the 'joke' but the ramifications are anything but funny. Incels et al. are also very keen to give the same reason for why they cannot get 'don't want' western women.
When people make racist jokes so quickly and easily, it shows their open association and their internalised racism. This guy even said how 'that attitude was definitely true in my old community... but I'm lIBerAL now'. People don't quickly shake the attitudes they grow up with.
Whenever people have these attitudes, it shows that they just see the race, and what it means sexually (madonna/whore), rather than the person. Incels and gamers fetishise Japanese women and black women are treated awfully by men/society.
Bonus tip: if someone has the 'white women are whores' JOKE attitude, that means they will very likely see white women as 'toys' (or 'forever girlfriends' at most) but will settle down and marry someone 'respectful' from their own race, so do watch out for that too. The same can happen with Christian men dating atheist women but wanting 'the Christian wife'.
Oh also, politically, I have always found the 'super hippie liberal' types to be the MOST sexist and disrespectful towards me. Could it be that they promote LibFem so hard because women giving them free easy sex might be in men's interests???? Even Marxist guy friends have essentially prude shamed me for NOT sleeping around.
It's all sad :(

2020.10.09 08:50 M2MResearch [Mod Informed] Participant Recruitment: Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19

Hello! I am a student researcher at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan). My team is conducting a study titled “Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19”. Our study looks into the experiences of subgroups of the Asian community that are often missed out in Asian community research in Canada. We would like to find out whether coming from these ethnic communities would create a different experience for our participants during CoVid-19. We are also interested to learn if these experiences differ when participants belong to a minority sexual orientation.
You may participate in our study if you identify with either Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Southeast Asia as your heritage culture. Southeast Asian countries include Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Brunei and/or Timor-Leste. Participants identifying as e.g., Singaporean/Malaysian/Indonesian Chinese/Indians may also participate. We welcome temporary residents (e.g., international students), immigrants and first/second/third/later- generation Canadians who identify with these heritage cultures to join our study. Participants must be at least aged 19. You must also identify as being a man-who-has-sex-with-men (MSM) to join our study. You must have been in Canada for at least 2 years. You must be able to read and speak in English.
We will be interviewing participants on their experiences as Asian MSM. We will ask questions about their experiences before and after CoVid-19 began. We will be interviewing over audio call on Skype for Business between September 2020 and March 2021. We have chosen this software as it is hosted on UBC servers, hence maximizing confidentiality. The interview will be recorded on QuickTime. Some of the questions may result in unpleasant memories, especially when they relate to CoVid-19. If you prefer not to discuss your experiences with CoVid, you may not want to take part in our study. If you do want to take part, you can request to take a break, skip any questions or end the study at any point in time. The interviews will take about 2 hours in total.
We are unfortunately unable to provide any remuneration for participating in our study. Should you be interested, please do not post comments on our post. Instead, please click on the following link: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0AItWBRmUD3RQ21. While Skype for Business is already a secure software, we would like to invite you to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) when accessing our link to further guarantee confidentiality.

2020.10.01 22:23 brit-cookiejp My preference is Asian men, is this racist or a form of fetishization?

I have usually dated my own race when I was a teenager, but I'm open to a relationship with a British Asian man or anyone else. The thing is that with all the other guys I've dated, they either just use me or the date doesn't go so well so I'm not looking anymore, essentially I've given up plus I'm too busy. I've never really explicitly said to people that my preference has been Asian men, but some people know that I do like them. I'm not a Koreaboo or a Weeaboo. I love the history of China. I just hate this stigma that if you date an Asian guy, you must have a fetish when this is not the case.
Edit: British Asian in the UK should mean East and South East/South Asian men, and what I mean by guys I've dated, even Asian guys I've been on dates in the past have had this behaviour! I'm not saying I'm the one who doesn't make mistakes but I'd date anyone OF any race I just don't have the time

2025, Pre-

I graduated with a degree in one field, found a low paying job in another, got married, worked my way to slightly better pay, wanted to have a child, bought a Beagle named Pillow as a temporary substitute, lived in an apartment overlooking a green garbage bin that was always full of beer cans and pizza boxes, and held my wife, crying, when we found out that we couldn’t have children. Somewhere along the way my parents died and Kurt Schwaller, a physicist from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, proved a grand theory of everything that rather than being based on the vibrations of strings, was based on a property of particles called viscous time force. I never understood the details. To me they lacked imagination. The overriding point, the experts on television told us, was that given enough data and computing power we could now predict the outcome of anything. The effect was that no one wanted to study theoretical physics and everyone wanted to make breakthroughs in data collection systems and biological hardware. Hackers created a version of Linux that ran from DNA. Western Digital released the first working holographic storage drive. The NSA, FSB, BND and other agencies rushed to put their suddenly valuable mass of unprocessed raw spy data to prognostic use. A Chinese bookmaker known only by the nick ##!! wrote a piece of Python code that could predict the outcomes of hockey games. Within a month, the NHL and KHL were scrambling to come up with ways of saving their leagues by making them more unpredictable. They introduced elements of chance: power plays without penalties, a tilting ice surface, fluctuating rules that sometimes allowed for icings and offsides and sometimes not, and, finally, a pre-game lottery by which the names of the players on both teams were put into a pot and randomly drawn into two squads. Given enough variables, the strategy did thwart the code, but the inherent unfairness of the innovations alienated the players, the draft made owners question why they were paying the salaries of superstars who played against them half of the time, and the fans simply stopped paying attention to a league full of teams for which their already dwindling loyalty had bottomed out. Besides, the code was basic. ##!! had room to expand. The KHL folded first, followed by the NHL, and then the other sports leagues, preemptively. They didn’t bother to wait until their own codes were broken. I remember seeing an interview with ##!! while this was still front page news. The reporter, a perpetually smiling big-breasted blonde with blindingly white teeth, asked him if he thought that hockey could be rescued by the creation of roving blue lines that would continually alter the relative sizes of both offensive zones and the neutral zone. ##!! answered that he didn’t know what a blue line was because he’d never watched a hockey game in his life. His voice was cold, objective, and there was something terrifyingly inhuman about the idea that a person with no knowledge of a subject could nevertheless understand it so completely. Content had become a mere input of form.
By 2025, mainstream interest in the theory of everything faded, not because the theory was wrong but because it was too right and too abstract and now there weren’t any young theoretical physicists to help explain it using cute graphics on YouTube. We consumed what we understood and passively accepted the fallout while going on with our daily lives. The people who did understand made money, but for the rest of us the consequences were less than their potential, because even with enough time, memory and microprocessors the most we could know was the what and the when, not the why. For the governments and corporations pouring taxes and tax-free earnings into complex models of world domination, that didn’t matter. They weren’t interested in cause. They were in the business of exploiting certainty to gain power. As long as they could predict lightning, they were satisfied. If they could make it, all the better. Away from the cutting edge, however, like ants or ancients, what we craved to know was where the lightning came from, what it meant, and on that issue the theory was silent. As Kurt Schwaller put it in a speech to the United Nations, “All I’ve given you is a tool—a microscope to magnify the minutes, so to speak—with which to investigate in perfect detail the entirety of our interrelations. But the investigations still have to made, ladies and gentlemen. Have a hay stack, look for the needle. Know there might not be one.”
In January, my wife and I began a fertility treatment for which we’d been saving for years. It was undoubtedly the reason we became so emotionally involved in the media attention around Aiko, the lovely, black-haired and fashionable Crown Princess of Japan, who along with her husband was going through the same ordeal that we were. For a few months, it seemed as if the whole world sat on the edges of its seat, wishing for this beautiful royal couple to conceive. And we sat on two, our own and one somewhere in an exotic Japan updated by the royal Twitter feed. It strikes me now that royalty has always fascinated the proles, a feeling that historically went in tandem with hatred, respect or awe, but it was the Japanese who held our attentions the longest and the most genuinely in the twenty-first century, when equality had more or less rendered a hereditary ruling class obsolete. The British declared themselves post-Christian in 2014 and post-Royal in 2021, the European Court of Justice ruled all other European royals invalid in 2022, and the Muslim monarchs pompously degraded themselves one-by-one into their own exiles and executions. Only the Japanese line survived, adapting to the times by refusing to take itself seriously on anything but the most superficial level. They dressed nicely, acted politely and observed a social protocol that we admired without wanting to follow it ourselves. Before he died, my father had often marvelled that the Second World War began with Japan being led by an emperor god, and ended with the American occupation forcing him to renounce his divinity. The Japanese god had died because MacArthur willed it and Hirohito spoke it. Godhood was like plaque. If your mother told you to brush your teeth, off it went, provided you used the right flavour of Colgate. Kings had once ruled by divine right. By 2025, the Crown Princess of Japan ruled our hearts merely by popular approval. She was our special friend, with whom we were all on intimate and imaginary terms. Indeed, on the day she died—on the day they all died—Princess Aiko’s was the most friended account on Facebook.
That’s why March 27, 2025, was such a joyous occasion for us. In hindsight, it’s utterly sick to associate the date with happiness of any kind, but history must always be understood in context, and the context of the announcement was a wirelessly connected world whose collective hopes came suddenly true to the jingle of a breaking news story on the BBC. I was in the kitchen sauteing onions when I heard it. Cutting them had made me cry and my eyes were still red. Then the announcer’s voice broke as he was setting up his intro, and in a video clip that was subsequently rebroadcast, downloaded and parodied close to a billion times in the one hundred thirty-two days that followed, he said: “The Crown Princess of Japan is pregnant!”
I ran to the living room and hugged my wife, who’d fallen to her knees in front of the wall-mounted monitor. Pillow was doing laps on and off the sofa. The BBC cut away from the announcer’s joyful face to a live feed from Japan. As I held my wife, her body felt warm and full of life. The top of her jeans cut into her waist. Her tears wetted the top of my shirt sleeve. Both of our phones started to buzz—emails and Twitter notifications streaming in. On the monitor, Aiko and her husband, both of their angular faces larger than life in 110” 1080p, waved to the crowd in Tokyo and the billions watching around the world. They spoke in Japanese and a woman on the BBC translated, but we hardly needed to know her exact words to understand the emotions. If them, why not also us? I knew my wife was having the same thought. We, too, could have a family. Then I smelled burning oil and the pungency of onions and I remembered my sauteing. I gently removed my arms from around my wife’s shoulders and ran back to the kitchen, still listening to Aiko’s voice and its polite English echo, and my hands must have been shaking, or else my whole body was shaking, because after I had turned down the heat I reached for the handle of the frying pan, knocked the pan off the stove top instead, and burned myself while stupidly trying to catch it before it fell, clattering, to the floor. The burned onions splattered. I’d cracked one of the kitchen tiles. My hand turned pale and I felt a numbness before my skin started to overflow with the warmth of pain. Without turning off the broadcast, my wife shooed me downstairs to the garage where we kept our car and drove me to the hospital.
The Toronto streets were raucous. Horns honked. J-pop blared. In the commotion we nearly hit a pedestrian, a middle-aged white woman pushing a baby carriage, who’d cut across Lake Shore without looking both ways. She had appeared suddenly from behind a parked transport—and my wife instinctively jerked the car from the left lane to the right, scraping our side mirror against the truck but saving two lives. The woman barely noticed. She disappeared into a crowd of Asian kids on the other side of street who were dancing to electronica and waving half a dozen Japanese flags, one of which was the Rising Sun Flag, the military flag of Imperial Japan. Clutching my wrist in the hope it would dull the pain in my hand, I wondered how many of them knew about the suffering Japanese soldiers had inflicted on countless Chinese in the name of that flag. To the right, Lake Ontario shone and sparkled in the late afternoon light. A passenger jet took off from Toronto Island Airport and climbed into the sky.
In the hospital waiting room, I sat next to a woman who was reading a movie magazine with Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s face on the cover. The Cannes film festival was coming up. My wife checked me in at the reception desk. The woman beside me put down her magazine and told me that she was there with her son, as if needing to justify her presence. I affirmed by nodding. He’d hurt his leg playing soccer for a local Armenian junior boys team, she went on. I said I’d hurt myself frying onions and that I was here with my wife. She said my wife was pretty and asked if I liked movies. Without meaning to do it, I tried to guess her age—unsuccessfully—and proceeded to imagine having doggy style sex with her. She had dark eyes that barely blinked and plump thighs. When I started to feel guilty, I answered her question: sometimes I watched movies at home, but I hadn’t been to a theatre in a decade. When my wife sat down, I let the two of them talk about the woman’s son. I was having trouble concentrating. I took my phone out of my pocket and read all the new emails about the royal conception, then stared at the seconds hand going slowly around its digital clock face on my home screen, wondering why we so often emulated the limitations of analogue machines on devices that were no longer bound by them. I switched my clock type to a digital readout. Now the seconds no longer rotated but flickered away. They called my name over the crackling intercom and a nurse led me to one of the empty rooms. “How about that baby,” he said while we walked. I didn’t see his face, only the shaved back of his head. “The things they can do these days, even for infertile couples.”
I waited for over thirty minutes for a doctor. When one came in, she inspected my hand for less than ten seconds before telling me that I was fine and hinting that I shouldn’t have wasted her time by coming to the emergency room. She had high cheek bones, thin lips and bony wrists. Her tablet had a faux clipboard wallpaper. Maybe I had only misinterpreted her tone. “How about that baby,” I said.
“It’s not a baby yet,” she answered.
This time her tone was impossible to misinterpret. I was only repeating what the nurse had said, I told myself. But I didn’t say that to her. Instead, I imagined her coming home at night to an empty apartment, furnished possibly in a minimalistic Japanese or Swedish style, brewing a cup of black coffee and settling into an armchair to re-read a Simone de Beauvoir novel. I was about to imagine having sex with her when I caught hold of myself and wondered what was up with me today.
When I got back to the waiting room, my wife was no longer there—but the Armenian woman was. She pointed down the hall and told me a room number. She said that sometime after I left, my wife had gotten a cramp and started to vomit all over the floor. Someone was still mopping up. The other people in the waiting room, which was filling up, gave me tactfully dirty looks, either because I was with the vomiter or because I’d shirked my responsible by being away during the vomiting. Irrationally, I wiped my own mouth and fled down the hall.
Inside the numbered room, my wife was sitting hunched over on an observation bed, slowly kicking her feet back and forth. “Are you OK?” I asked.
“Come here,” she said.
I did, and sat beside her on the bed. I repeated my question. She still smelled a little of vomit, but she looked up at me like the world’s luckiest puppy, her eyes big and glassy, and said, “Norman, I’m pregnant.”
That’s all she could say—
That’s all either of us could say for a while.
We just sat there on the examination bed like a pair of best friends on a swing set after dark, dangling our feet and taking turns pulling each other closer. “Are you sure?” I finally asked. My voice was hoarse. I sounded like a frog.
“Yes.” She kicked the heel of my shoe with the rubber toe of hers. “We’re going to have a baby.”
It was beautiful. The most wonderful moment of my life. I remembered the day we met and our little marriage ceremony. I thought about being a father, and felt positively terrified, and about being a better husband, and felt absolutely determined, and as I kissed my wife there in the little hospital room with its sterile green walls, I imagined making love to her. I kept imagining it as we drove back to the apartment through partying Toronto streets. “Not since the Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup!” the radio announcer proclaimed—before I turned him off. I also turned off my phone and my wife’s phone. No more buzzing. In the underground parking lot, I leaned over and licked her soft neck. I pushed her through the open apartment door and straight into the living room, onto the sofa, and wished I could be the cushions beneath her thighs and the air invading her lungs. Pillow barked a greeting and wagged her tail. The monitor on the wall showed talking heads and fertility experts. I unbuttoned my wife’s blouse. She unbuckled my belt. The picture on the monitor dissolved to a close-up of Aiko’s smiling face. My wife and I took turns sliding off each other’s jeans. I kissed her bare stomach. She ran her hands through my hair. I dimmed the lights. We made love.
When we were done it was starry nighttime. My wife bandaged my hand. We turned off the television. The silence was refreshing because people on television too often talk like they’re trying to push you off a ledge. My wife excused me from the duty of making supper because of my ineptness with the frying pan, and handed me a leash instead. I hooked it up to Pillow’s collar and took her outside. While she peed, I gazed up at the sky and identified the Big Dipper. It and the Little Dipper were the only constellations I could identify without using a smartphone app. After Pillow finished, we ducked into a nook and I peed, too. The March sky was amazingly clear of smog. My urine splashed on the concrete and I felt embarrassingly primal. I breathed in, shook out the last drops and zipped up.
In the apartment, we ate grilled portabella mushrooms topped with parmesan and parsley and drank brown rice tea. My wife had changed into fresh clothes. I had changed into fresh skin. Every time she said “mom” and “dad”, the words discharged trickles of electricity up and down my peripheral nervous system. We were happy; we were going to have a baby. The whole world was happy; the Crown Princess of Japan of was going to have a baby. The sounds of drunken urban celebrations drifted in through our bedroom window all night like fog, and we barely slept.

Iris

The first person to ever tell me the theory was Iris. It was nighttime in 2015, and we were lying on an old mattress on the roof of a four-storey apartment building in a university town in southern Ontario. A party was going on downstairs to which we’d both been invited and from whose monotony we’d helped each other escape through an ordinary white door that said “No entrance”. It was summer. I remember the heat waves and the radiating warmth of the asphalt. Our semester was over and we had started existing until the next one started in the way all students exist when they don’t spend their months off at home or touring Europe. I could feel the bass thumping from below. I could see the infinite stars in the cloudless sky. The sound seemed so disconnected from the image. Iris and I weren’t dating, we were just friends, but she leaned toward me on the mattress that night until I could feel her breathing on my neck, and, with my eyes pointed spaceward, she began: “What if…”
Back then it was pure speculation, a wild fantasy inspired by the THC from the joint we were passing back and forth and uninhibited by the beer we’d already drunk. There was nothing scientific or even philosophical about Iris’ telling of it. The theory was a flight of imagination influenced by her name and personalized by the genetic defect of her eyes, which her doctors had said would render her blind by fifty. Even thirty-five seemed far away. It’s heartbreaking now to know that Iris never did live to experience her blindness—her own genetic fate interrupted by the genetic fate of the world—but that night, imagination, the quality Einstein called more important than knowledge, lit up both our brains in synapses of neon as we shared our joint, sucking it into glowing nothingness, Iris paranoid that she’d wake up one morning in eternal darkness despite the doctors’ assurances that her blindness would occur gradually, and me fearing that I would never find love, never share my life with anyone, but soothed at least by Iris’ words and her impossible ideas because Einstein was right, and imagination is magical enough to cure anything.

In the hospital waiting room, I sat next to a woman who was reading a movie magazine with Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s face on the cover. The Cannes film festival was coming up. My wife checked me in at the reception desk. The woman beside me put down her magazine and told me that she was there with her son, as if needing to justify her presence. I affirmed by nodding. He’d hurt his leg playing soccer for a local Armenian junior boys team, she went on. I said I’d hurt myself frying onions and that I was here with my wife. She said my wife was pretty and asked if I liked movies. Without meaning to do it, I tried to guess her age—unsuccessfully—and proceeded to imagine having doggy style sex with her. She had dark eyes that barely blinked and plump thighs. When I started to feel guilty, I answered her question: sometimes I watched movies at home, but I hadn’t been to a theatre in a decade. When my wife sat down, I let the two of them talk about the woman’s son. I was having trouble concentrating. I took my phone out of my pocket and read all the new emails about the royal conception, then stared at the seconds hand going slowly around its digital clock face on my home screen, wondering why we so often emulated the limitations of analogue machines on devices that were no longer bound by them. I switched my clock type to a digital readout. Now the seconds no longer rotated but flickered away. They called my name over the crackling intercom and a nurse led me to one of the empty rooms. “How about that baby,” he said while we walked. I didn’t see his face, only the shaved back of his head. “The things they can do these days, even for infertile couples.”
I waited for over thirty minutes for a doctor. When one came in, she inspected my hand for less than ten seconds before telling me that I was fine and hinting that I shouldn’t have wasted her time by coming to the emergency room. She had high cheek bones, thin lips and bony wrists. Her tablet had a faux clipboard wallpaper. Maybe I had only misinterpreted her tone. “How about that baby,” I said.
“It’s not a baby yet,” she answered.
This time her tone was impossible to misinterpret. I was only repeating what the nurse had said, I told myself. But I didn’t say that to her. Instead, I imagined her coming home at night to an empty apartment, furnished possibly in a minimalistic Japanese or Swedish style, brewing a cup of black coffee and settling into an armchair to re-read a Simone de Beauvoir novel. I was about to imagine having sex with her when I caught hold of myself and wondered what was up with me today.
When I got back to the waiting room, my wife was no longer there—but the Armenian woman was. She pointed down the hall and told me a room number. She said that sometime after I left, my wife had gotten a cramp and started to vomit all over the floor. Someone was still mopping up. The other people in the waiting room, which was filling up, gave me tactfully dirty looks, either because I was with the vomiter or because I’d shirked my responsible by being away during the vomiting. Irrationally, I wiped my own mouth and fled down the hall.
Inside the numbered room, my wife was sitting hunched over on an observation bed, slowly kicking her feet back and forth. “Are you OK?” I asked.
“Come here,” she said.
I did, and sat beside her on the bed. I repeated my question. She still smelled a little of vomit, but she looked up at me like the world’s luckiest puppy, her eyes big and glassy, and said, “Norman, I’m pregnant.”
That’s all she could say—
That’s all either of us could say for a while.
We just sat there on the examination bed like a pair of best friends on a swing set after dark, dangling our feet and taking turns pulling each other closer. “Are you sure?” I finally asked. My voice was hoarse. I sounded like a frog.
“Yes.” She kicked the heel of my shoe with the rubber toe of hers. “We’re going to have a baby.”
It was beautiful. The most wonderful moment of my life. I remembered the day we met and our little marriage ceremony. I thought about being a father, and felt positively terrified, and about being a better husband, and felt absolutely determined, and as I kissed my wife there in the little hospital room with its sterile green walls, I imagined making love to her. I kept imagining it as we drove back to the apartment through partying Toronto streets. “Not since the Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup!” the radio announcer proclaimed—before I turned him off. I also turned off my phone and my wife’s phone. No more buzzing. In the underground parking lot, I leaned over and licked her soft neck. I pushed her through the open apartment door and straight into the living room, onto the sofa, and wished I could be the cushions beneath her thighs and the air invading her lungs. Pillow barked a greeting and wagged her tail. The monitor on the wall showed talking heads and fertility experts. I unbuttoned my wife’s blouse. She unbuckled my belt. The picture on the monitor dissolved to a close-up of Aiko’s smiling face. My wife and I took turns sliding off each other’s jeans. I kissed her bare stomach. She ran her hands through my hair. I dimmed the lights. We made love.
When we were done it was starry nighttime. My wife bandaged my hand. We turned off the television. The silence was refreshing because people on television too often talk like they’re trying to push you off a ledge. My wife excused me from the duty of making supper because of my ineptness with the frying pan, and handed me a leash instead. I hooked it up to Pillow’s collar and took her outside. While she peed, I gazed up at the sky and identified the Big Dipper. It and the Little Dipper were the only constellations I could identify without using a smartphone app. After Pillow finished, we ducked into a nook and I peed, too. The March sky was amazingly clear of smog. My urine splashed on the concrete and I felt embarrassingly primal. I breathed in, shook out the last drops and zipped up.
In the apartment, we ate grilled portabella mushrooms topped with parmesan and parsley and drank brown rice tea. My wife had changed into fresh clothes. I had changed into fresh skin. Every time she said “mom” and “dad”, the words discharged trickles of electricity up and down my peripheral nervous system. We were happy; we were going to have a baby. The whole world was happy; the Crown Princess of Japan of was going to have a baby. The sounds of drunken urban celebrations drifted in through our bedroom window all night like fog, and we barely slept.

2025, Post-

Gold is precious because it’s rare. Now close your eyes and imagine that the next time you open them, everything in your world will be golden: your kitchen table, the bananas you bought on the way home from work yesterday, your bottle of shampoo, even your teeth. Now blink. You’re not alone. The market’s flooded. Gold isn’t rare anymore. It’s everywhere. Which means that it’s worth about as much as its weight in mud, because there’s nothing intrinsically good about gold. Can you write on your gold table? It scratches. Surely you can’t eat your golden fruit. Your shampoo’s not a liquid anymore, so your hair’s already starting to get greasy. And if you do find something to eat that’s not made of metal, how long will those gold teeth last before you grind them into finely polished nubs?
For two days the Earth glittered.
For two days we lived in a daze of perfection.
And then, on March 29, a researcher working with lab mice at Stanford University noticed something odd. All of his female mice were pregnant. He contacted several of his colleagues who were also working with mice, rats, and monkeys. All their female animals were pregnant, too. Some of the colleagues had wives and girlfriends. They took innocent-seeming trips to their local pharmacies and bought up all the available pregnancy tests. At home, women took test after test and all of them showed positive. By midnight, the researchers had drafted a joint letter and sent copies of it to the major newspapers in their countries. On the morning of March 30, the news hit.
When I checked my Twitter feed after breakfast, #impregtoo was already trending. Throughout the day, Reddit lit up with increasingly bizarre accounts of pregnancies that physically couldn’t be but, apparently, were. Post-menopausal women, celibate women, prepubescent girls, women who’d had their uteruses removed only to discover that their reproductive systems had spontaneously regenerated like the severed tales of lizards. Existing early stage pregnancies aborted themselves and re-fertilized, like a system rebooting. Later term pregnancies developed Matryoshka-like pregnancies nested within pregnancies. After a while, I stopped reading, choosing to spend time with my wife instead. As night fell, we reclined on the sofa, her head on my chest, Pillow curled up in our tangle of feet, the television off, and the streets of Toronto eerily quiet save for the intermittent blaring of far off sirens, as any lingering doubts about the reality of the situation melted away like the brief, late season snow that floated gently down from the sky, blackening the streets.
On March 30, the World Health Organization issued a communique confirming that based on the available data it was reasonable to assume that all female mammals were pregnant. No cause was identified. It urged any woman who was not pregnant to step forward immediately. Otherwise, the communique offered no guidance. It indicated merely that the organization was already working with governments around the world to prepare for a massive influx of human population in approximately nine months’ time. Most places, including Toronto, reacted with stunned panic. Non-essential workplaces and schools were decried closed. People were urged to stay indoors. Hospitals prepared for possible complications. A few supermarkets ran out of canned food and there were several bank runs, but nothing happened that the existing systems couldn’t handle. Populations kept their nerve. Highway and air traffic increased slightly as people rushed to be with their friends, families and gynaecologists. We spent the entire day in our apartment and let Pillow pee in the tub. Except for the conspiracy theorists, who believed that the Earth was being cosmically pollinated by aliens, most of us weren’t scared to go outside, but we were scared of the unknown, and we preferred to process that fear in the comfort of our own dens.
The New York Times ran a front page editorial arguing for an evaluation of the situation using Kurt Schwaller’s theory of everything. In conjunction with The Washington Post, The Guardian and The Wikipedia Foundation, a website was set up asking users for technical help, monetary donations and the sharing of any surplus computing power.
The project quickly ran into problems. To accurately predict anything, the theory of everything needed sufficient data, and, on April 2, cryptome.org published a series of leaked emails between the French Minister of Health and a high-ranking member of World Health Organization that proved the latter’s communique had been disingenuous at best. Externally, the World Health Organization had concluded that all female mammals were pregnant. That remained true. However, it had failed to admit an even more baffling development: the wombs of all female mammals had inexplicably become impenetrable to all rays and materials that had so far been tried against them. For all intents and purposes, there was no way to see inside the womb, or to destroy it. The only way to revert the body to its natural form, to terminate the pregnancy, was to kill the woman—an experiment that, according to the high-ranking member of the World Health Organization, the French government had helped conduct on unwilling women in Mali. Both parties issued repeated denials until a video surfaced showing the murders. I couldn’t bring myself to watch it. They spun their denials into arguments about the necessity of sacrificing lives for the greater good.
Reminded once again of the deception inherent in politics, many turned to religion, but the mainstream religions were hesitant to react. They offered few opinions and no answers. The fringe religions split into two camps. Some leaders welcomed this development, the greatest of all known miracles, while others denounced the same as a universal and unnatural punishment for our collective sins of hedonism, egoism and pride. The most successful of all was the Tribe of Akna, a vaguely mystical Maya revival cult that sprang up seemingly overnight and was led by a Guatemalan freelance programmer named Salvador Abaroa. Although it originated in Mexico City, the Tribe spread as quickly across the world as the computer viruses that Abaroa was notorious for creating. On the Tribe’s homepage, Abaroa could be seen striking an antique brass gong and saying in Spanish-tinged English, “Like energy, life is never destroyed. Every one of us plays an integral part of the cosmic ecosystem. Every man, woman and virus.” Elsewhere on the website, you could buy self-published theological textbooks, listen to scratchy recordings of speeches by Alan Watts and read about the hypothesis that Maya thought was deeply connected to Buddhism because the Mayans had crossed the Pacific Ocean and colonized Asia.
But despite the apparent international cooperation happening at the highest levels, the first week of April was an atomizing period for the so-called people on the ground. We hunkered down. Most personal communication was digital. My wife and I exchanged emails with her parents and sister, but we met no one face-to-face, not even on Skype. We neither invited our neighbours to dinner nor were invited by them, despite how easy it was to walk down the hall and knock. I read far more than I wrote, and even when I did write, responding to a blog post or news story, I found it easier to relate to strangers than to the people I knew. My wife said I had a high tolerance for solitude. “Who do you know in the city?” she asked. Although we’d been living here together for three years, she still considered Toronto mine. She was the stranger, I was the native. I said that I knew a few people from work. She told me to call one of them I’d never called before. I did, and the next day’s sky was cloudless and sunny and there were five of us in the apartment: my wife and I, my friend Bakshi and his wife Jacinda, and their daughter, Greta. Greta drank apple juice while the rest of us drank wine, and all five of us gorged ourselves on freshly baked peach cobbler, laughing at silly faces and cracking immature jokes. It hardly registered for me that the majority of the room was unstoppably pregnant, but wasn’t that the point: to forget—if only for a few hours? Instead of watching the BBC, we streamed BDRips of Hayao Miyazaki movies from The Pirate Bay. Porco Rosso ruled the skies, castles flew, a Catbus arrived at its magical stop. Then Bakshi’s phone rang, and he excused himself from the table to take the call. When he returned, his face was grey. “What’s the matter?” Jacinda asked him. He was still holding the phone to his ear. “It’s Kurt Schwaller,” he said. “They just found his body. They think he killed himself.”

2020.09.27 18:06 laur3en Advice from a Canadian Immigration veteran - Do your research

Hi guys,
I've been lurking around this sub for months and I couldn't help it but notice a series of common mistakes many of you make when gathering information and resources to move to Canada.
I'm 21, but I consider myself a veteran when it comes to Canadian immigration. I started to look at how to move to Canada since I was 14 years old. Before Express Entry existed and LMIA's were called LMO.
Now, I graduated from a Canadian college a couple of months ago, and if everything goes well, I'll be applying for PR next month. With 0 work experience, a bachelor, or having taken the IELTS. How is that possible? Because I did my research, and hopefully by creating this post I'll convince you to do yours before resorting to an immigration agent.

For most people Immigration is not a straight line
Immigration doesn't mean you're in your home country, get PR right away, move to Canada and live happily ever after. Unless you have a killer professional profile, chances are that you'll need either to study in Canada, gain more work experience or get a Canadian work permit.
Many newcomers that use the "straight line" paths struggle for years before getting settled, while people who come with Study/Work permits have a very smooth transition to PR and don't deal with issues such as credit history, landlord references, credit checks and the famous "Canadian Experience" excuse.

Do not use Immigration agents
Seriously, unless you have a very complicated case (criminal record, having lived illegally in other countries...) you should be able to do EVERY. SINGLE. THING on your own.
I took care of my own study permit when I was a clueless teenager, if you're a grown up adult you don't need an immigration agent to manage your application as IRCC makes it extremely easy for you to get the right documents. An immigration agent/consultant will just be a middle man between you and IRCC and you could be using those funds to buy a car, pay rent and your initial expenses when you land.

Don't forget PNP programs
I'm surprised at how many people don't know what PNP programs are, especially considering obtaining a PNP via Express Entry can give you up to 600 points or even better, can help you to avoid going through the Express Entry system at all.
Paper-based PNP programs have signifincatly less requirements than Express Entry, so people who have NOC C or D professions, don't speak English very well, don't have a bachelor's and are over 30 - 40 years old still have a chance to obtain PR without competing with younger and more educated applicants.
Ontario: https://www.ontario.ca/page/ontario-...e-program-oinp
Manitoba: http://www.immigratemanitoba.com/immigrate-to-manitoba/
Saskatchewan: https://www.saskatchewan.ca/resident...ominee-program
Alberta: https://www.alberta.ca/ainp.aspx
British Columbia: https://www.welcomebc.ca/Immigrate-t...ominee-Program
Newfoundland: https://www.gov.nl.ca/immigration
/New Brunswick: https://www.welcomenb.ca/content/wel...eeProgram.html
Nova Scotia: https://novascotiaimmigration.com/move-here
/Prince Edward Island: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en...minee-program]

For international students, think it twice before choosing a province
If you plan to come to Canada as an international student to obtain PR you should know all of your possibilities to stay permanently BEFORE coming to Canada, not after graduating. Why is this a problem?
I have a friend who studied in Ontario, got a NOC C job and worked until his PGWP was almost up (3 years). When he checked his immigration options he was horrified when he realized his NOC C job didn't give him any Canadian Experience points. He had to leave, and the money he invested on his education was wasted.
If he had done his research, he'd known a NOC C job wouldn't give him any Canadian Experience points towards Express Entry, but would have made him eligible for PR under a PNP in certain provinces if only he had lived and worked there for 6 months.
My advice if you want easy PR, is to consider what province you'll move to and what province-specific immigration a job prospects you have. Is it known that Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Atlantic provinces offer easy permanent residence for people who commit to the province by working or studying there, while Ontario is more picky as most international students end up here.

Know your work permit options
The US, Mexico and some South American countries have NAFTA agreements with Canada, which means obtaining a work permit is way easier than it is for people who need LMIA's and regular work permits.
Europeans, Aussies and Kiwis also have IEC programs, and can obtain a Working Holiday Visa (1 year open work permit) which can be changed to a Young Professionals visa. If you're smart about it, you could easily get 50 extra points towards Express Entry + 2 years of Canadian work experience totally hassle-free. This is, of course if you do your research beforehand and don't "waste" your WHV.
The program is not just for Europeans, Aussies and Kiwis. There are a range of other countries that participate in this program too. Some South American countries and Asian countries can take advantage too.
A WHV can be 6 months to 2 years, depending on country of citizenship.
Not all allow you to switch between WHV and YP, or even offer all options to participants.
If you are not a citizen of one of the countries participating directly in the program, this doesn't mean you can't take advantage of it still, you instead need to go through a Registered Organisation.
Seriously, PGWP and WHV are a once in a lifetime opportunities, don't waste them and make sure you know all your options BEFORE your permits expire.

Immigration consultats can be great or terrible
There are some cases where I recommend using an immigration consultat, especially if you have a difficult case. But they are also a good resource if you have very specific questions that the IRCC website can't solve.
I myself found some immigration loopholes that would have made my CRS score skyrocket if I had gone through with them, and to double-check I asked an immigration consultant.
But some immigration consultants will give you false hopes and waste your time and money, in the Canadavisa forums there are many cases where immigration consultants "promise" PR and all they do is to set up an EE profile...knowing the applicant's score is not going to be enough with current cutoff scores.
If you decide you want to hire an immigration consultant's services, make sure they're ICCRC (Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council) approved because at least, that means they're legitimely approved by IRCC to give immigration advice.
Here you can check if your representative is authorized: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigration-citizenship-representative/choose/authorized.html

Keep your EE profile dynamic
Learning French, getting a 1-yr diploma either in your home country or Canada can make the difference between getting an ITA or not. Keeping your NOC up to date or even changing it if your duties align better with a NOC that falls into a PNP target stream can give you up to 600 points.
Don't let your EE profile idle and just hoping scores will drop, try to actively increase your score by learning French, studying, finding a job in Canada or getting an IEC permit if you're eligible.

Have a plan B
As you must know by now, Express Entry is the quickest way to get PR in Canada but it's not the only option. Studying in Canada, PNP, NAFTA and IEC can also lead to permanent residence. If you can, try to write down all of the possible immigration pathways you could use.
The "Come to Canada" tool is a good resource to get started, but it's too basic and doesn't really give personalized answers in the same way you could learn on your own. If you want to immigrate permanently it's just going to tell you Express Entry, but won't mention studying and working as PR pathways or PNP programs.
https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/come-canada-tool.html
That's all I wanted to say, it's a bit discouraging how many people post here without having done any research or taking the effort to go through the IRCC page, expecting to get easy answers while the truth is Canadian immigration is extremely complex and the different options to stay permanently in the country vary from one person to another.
DO YOUR RESEARCH.
Edit:
Thanks for the award! Since some people PM'd me asking among other things about the acronyms' meaning, here's a list of the most common used ones:
PR = Permanent Residence
PNP = Provincial Nominee Program
EE = Express Entry
ITA = Invitation to apply
CEC = Canadian Experience Class
FSW = Federal Skilled Worker
FST = Federal Skilled Trades
TFW= Temporary Foreign Worker
PGWP = Post-graduation work permit
DIP = Decision in Progress
WHV = Working Holiday Visa
YP = Young Professionals visa
LMIA = Labour Market Impact Assessment

2020.09.27 00:09 Laddimor The humans and the Raflexian scouts

This one is a continuation of " The Raflexian scouts " from the perspective of the humans within the same timeframe. It is my hope that I manage to write this one out with better formatting, I've been watching youtube videos trying to learn how while I also juggle how I want the story to go. Sorry if this ends up not being up to par either. Please let me know how to improve in the comments once more.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Date: July 4th 2040.
Location: Washington D.C., Earth, Sol system.
President Miller of the united states of America
Miller was at a press conference trying to secure his next election when a secret service agent interrupted his speech. " I'm sorry sir, this is urgent. we need you at the white house ASAP." He said, at nearly a whisper.
Miller felt his chest tighten, "Is it the Russians? or maybe the Great Asian Alliance? What is going on?" he asked. The agent remained silent however, as he pushed President Miller along to the limousine. Miller now alone with his thoughts began to think about what could have possibly been so important. Was it Russia breaking the Accords of 2026? he thought. Maybe its the Great Asian Alliance preparing to nuke us, or worse yet, what if they put aside their differences to fight us? he thought. Tired of running useless depressing scenarios in his head, he jokingly said " God i hope its just aliens."

Miller arrived at the white house and was rushed inside by what felt like forty people. The closer he got to the conference room the more his chest tightened and the more butterflies he got in his stomach. Finally he arrives at the door to the Virtual conference room. Miller steps inside the room to see only a single large chair with four guards stationed on each side. Miller walks over to the chair and sits in it, as it begins to recline he feels a pinprick in the base of his skull and then, in a snap he is in a massive conference room with not only his staff but the leaders and staff from every major nation.
Miller takes in the surrounding faces of each country and now, he had a truly sinking feeling. " What is goin on? does anyone have a sitrep?" Miller asked.
" We only just arrived ourselves Mr. Miller, so no. we don't know." President Vladimir Putin of Russia said with only a drizzle of sarcasm.
" You really should know already Mr. Miller, after all, it concerns your country the most." Grand Chancellor Liu Cixin said.
A woman cleared her throat so as to get everyone's attention " I believe we have a guest who wishes to speak regarding this very incident gentleman. please allow her the floor." British prime minister Lillian Taylor said.
" Thank you Ms. Taylor. as she said, i am here to deliver the news, both good, and bad. as of thirty minutes ago we got a communications from an extraterrestrial race of sapient beings with extremely advanced technology. they are currently waiting to speak with all the major leaders of this world. namely, all of you." Chief of staff Tiffany Wiles said.
Everyone in the room seemed shocked, there were gasps, murmurs to their respective subordinates, a few seemed frozen, still processing the news. " Good news first ladies and gentleman." she said. " They are willing to bring us into their fold and teach us new technologies. bad news? they really don't like the fact that we have our religions and they are threatening the use of deadly force if we do not worship their god " Raflexus". They are called the Raflexians and based on the trajectory they came in at we estimate that they came from the Coma Berenices star cluster." she said. Then a holo-projection appeared in their virtual space.
" Human leaders, we are the Raflexians. We see that you worship many gods and it disgusts us. There is only one true god, and his almighty name is Divine god king Raflexus XLVI! If you are willing to discard your fake gods in place of our god king then you may join our empire and become, Raflexian! However, if you wish to continue the worship of these false idols then we will take it as a personal attack upon our kings name. Make your choice humans, and make it now.
The room erupted into a cacophony of inarticulate screams and plea's all melded into one within this virtual space. Each country vying for the Raflexians attention at the same time as the others. Finally the Raflexians had heard enough of it and pointed at President Miller. " You, Human leader Miller. you may speak first as we are above your city currently. Not theirs.
The whole room froze, but none more than Miller. His mind running wild with not only being put on the spot like that after hearing such troubling news, but the implications. The implications of them being over his city. The implications of deadly force upon his people. He started to tremble. there was no way he could possibly convince the entirety of America to drop all of our religions, do away with our religious materials, and texts. it simply wasn't possible. Miller knew that most of his family even would sooner die than forsake god. Miller gave in too the panic that had been building inside of him since the agent had pulled him aside.
" We cant possibly promise to stop the worship immediately, there are too many people, religions, and places! It just cant be done! Please gives us better terms, I beg of you! PLEASE! Be reasonable!" he said.
Everyone in the room looked at Miller with some part pity some part anger. They watched as he shook and turned red while screaming his plea's to the aliens who were no doubt going to be angered over this, and then, the Raflexians spoke.
" It seems you need to learn your lesson."
The holo-projection of the Raflexian scout disappeared and in its place a holo-projection of a ship descending from orbit appeared. The Raflexians were heading to Washington D.C.
All present within the room sat frozen in time within this space, all frozen with fear as a ship that was about as big as an aircraft carrier hovered above the American capitol. Then, Several lasers shot out at once destroying every single mosque, church, and any other religious places of worship.
The Raflexian appeared once more in place of the screen and said one thing. " We will show you true might, go ahead and strike at us as much as you wish. your primitive weaponry will amount to nothing." he said.
The Raflexian scout disappeared as the screen came back to reveal thirty one F-53 Lightning jets flying in at Mach 11.7 before engaging the enemy vessel with everything they had. The room watched as the worlds most powerful military engaged a single alien ship. The jets opened with Vulcan .50 caliber guns which bounced of the scouts shielding. Then the jets launched a volley of EMP missiles at the ship which the ship didn't even attempt to shoot down. This proved to be the downfall of the Raflexian scout as the missiles impacted the shielding and tore it to shreds, the jets then fired H.E. missiles which the scout ship attempted to intercept this time. Lasers shot out at our missiles and destroyed most of them but two got through and struck the engines causing the ship to list before falling to the ground with a thunderous crash.
The Citizens who had just witnessed this slaughtering of their religious sites, friends, and family, then congregated at the wreckage of the fallen ship beating at the hull and screaming with everything they had. Finally a hatch opened and the Raflexians stepped out plasma casters in hand, They unleashed searing plasma at the crowd of enraged humans killing several on the spot. This only served to enrage them further causing them to scream what could only be called a war cry before charging the dozen Raflexians. The Raflexians shot as fast as they could but there were simply too many angry humans, soon the crowd had reached them and when they did they beat and bludgeoned the Raflexians to death with nothing but debris from the wreckage.
A crowd of humans then drug off the dead or unconscious bodies of eleven Raflexians putting them into a pile and setting it alight, while another mob of them went inside the ship to search for surviving crew to kill and burn but all they found were the personal effects of the twelve they had already fought. They couldn't go back empty handed so they grabbed the holographic image projector that showed Raflexus from a table and left the ship. The man who had taken the projector then walked through the mob to the one remaining Raflexian who was being forced to watch his crewmates burn. He squatted down in front of the Raflexian and asked who the projector was displaying.
The scout saw the projection of his god and felt at peace, he looked at the human in front of him and said, " He is your new god, you will worship him. My ship was over 5 millennia old so it is so outdated that you wont even be able to glean any relevant secrets from it. My people will come, High commander Trikx will come, and he, will destroy you." he said
The human looked at the Raflexian scout and said " your god looks like a piece of shit. what's his name?"
The Raflexian scout seethed with anger as he heard the human say that his god looked like a piece of fecal matter. " His name is Divine god king Raflexus XLVI and you will burn for daring to slander our lord!"
The human chuckled. " Ya well my names Gabriel and it looks like you're the one whos gonna be burnin'." he said. Gabriel then hefted the Raflexian to his shoulder and then tossed him into the flames and ash that were once his crewmates. "Did ya hear that boys and girls? ET just came down from the heavens and killed our families because we wouldn't bend the knee to this here piece of shit!" he then thrusted the projector above his head so the whole crowd could see the god king that was the cause of this.
The World leaders had just sat there in silence as the projector played, They could do nothing but watch as their warrants for death were signed. Finally Liu Cixin spoke up. " I would like to propose a global alliance at this point to partake in joint research of that vessel so that we may reverse engineer it and create a fleet that may be capable of defending our world from the coming fires. All who agree raise your right hand."
The first hand to go up was Lillian Taylor of great Britain, followed by Vladimir Putin of Russia, and now they were just waiting on President Miller who was still just watching the screen, frozen. Finally Miller looked away from the screen and just looked down before yelling. " Why the FUCK! did I hope it was FUCKING aliens! FUCK!" he screamed as he thrust his right hand up with as much force as a virtual projection of himself could.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Sorry this took so long, I had almost completed it yesterday and then it didn't save so I had to rewrite it from memory today. Ended up changing a little bit anyways. Felt like it was getting too long so I tried to cut it a little shorter than I had intended. Do let me know how to improve in the comments. Constructive criticism always welcome.

2020.09.25 14:36 VisibleConfusion69 Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc- If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act

Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc – If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
Dear Steve,
On June 1, you shared a letter on Reddit’s blog “Remember the Human – Black Lives Matter”. In this letter, you claim “as Snoos, we do not tolerate hate, racism, and violence, and while we have work to do to fight these on our platform, our values are clear.”
As of today, neither you nor any other Reddit admins have shared this letter anywhere on reddit.com. However, the response to this message was swift on Twitter, where you were rightfully labeled as hypocritical based on your long and well-recorded history of defending racism and white supremacy on this site.
Among the many responses was this message from former CEO of Reddit, Ellen Pao.
I am obligated to call you out: You should have shut down the_donald instead of amplifying it and its hate, racism, and violence. So much of what is happening now lies at your feet. You don't get to say BLM when reddit nurtures and monetizes white supremacy and hate all day long
Many others shared links and screenshots of your past statements saying “Open racism and slurs are fine to post on Reddit”.
The problem of Reddit’s leadership supporting and providing a platform for racist users and hateful communities has long been an issue. Nearly six years ago, dozens of subreddits signed the original open letter to the Reddit admins calling for action. While the Reddit admins acknowledged the letter and said it was a high priority to address this issue, extremely little has been done in the intervening years.
On June 5, you shared this update on /Announcements, Upcoming changes to our content policy, our board, and where we’re going from here. In the post, you stated that there is a need for continued adjustments of Reddit’s content policy to address racism and that this remains a priority. These continued statements that you hear us, that this is a priority, or that you are working on it are not enough. It has been five years since your return as CEO and this still remains Reddit’s most glaring problem.
Steve, if you and Reddit genuinely care about the values of standing up to racism and hate, then you need to back it up with real action. As moderators on this website who have dedicated countless hours to keeping this site running, we call on Reddit to take the following steps:
At /AgainstHateSubreddits, we have laid out the many failures of Steve time and again to stand up to white supremacy on this site time and time and time again.
With a website with the impact of Reddit on the broader conversations being held in communities around the world, this website needs real leadership and real action.
We hope that Reddit will not just share empty platitudes — but will take a meaningful stand against hate, and take these recommendations to heart.
This letter is co-signed by more than 200 300 350 430 550 650 800 communities representing well over 200 hundreds of millions of subscribers:

2020.09.24 12:43 confusedeurasian Taiwanese travel blogger fantasised about life in London and ended up disillusioned after experiencing racism and coming across chavs in the UK

In her first post, the blogger talked about being excited for her trip to the UK. She knew she would be staying with a host family so she searched for the house on Google Maps. She loved the house, and fantasised about having a British guy singing love songs to her while she was on the second floor, jogging in the streets, and walking the family dog.
After arriving to the UK, she ended up being disillusioned. Her second post was on her host family, where she said she was disappointed as her family was British-Filipino instead of "true Brits". She admitted she didn't like how many of these host families were Middle Eastern or Asian as "they weren't as friendly and nice as what she had imagined". Such unwokeness. She also suspected the eldest daughter of the British-Filipino family to like smoking weed, simply she once saw a BM emerged from the house (whom she assumed was a thief) and when she entered the house, the AW was only wearing underwear (that was racist). Interestingly, she later stayed with a host family consisting of a WMAF couple and she didn't complain about it despite how the "true British" guy was never at home.
She was so disillusioned to the point of creating a post on why she hated London. Apparently another host family of hers was a family of Chinese-Brits who didn't speak Chinese and she was disappointed. She hated the food and weather (surprise, surprise) and experienced racism when a Spanish student in her ESL class said she didn't want to be grouped with her "as her English was poor". She also hated how there were a lot of black people and chavs at night. She saw London as an unsafe place simply because she bumped into a group of blacks right after leaving a Tube station at around ten at night. Interesting, she created another post on reasons to love London and liked London for having "Europeans from different countries". Looks like she hated POC immigrants yet liked white ones. Go figure
Oh well, I guess this is what happens when white worshiping Asians travel to the West. They end up disillusioned when they experience racism, coming across 'chavs" or equivalents, and realise the West is not 100% white.
Edit: Found this post where the blogger shared photos of herself with Abercrombie and Fitch models (most of them were white). She seemed to have a thing for WM.
Edit 2: She dated an Indian guy in the UK at some point. She later created a post where she told other Taiwanese girls not to be jealous of her foreign boyfriend though due to language barriers. Apparently her English was terrible to the point where she couldn't hold an argument with her boyfriend.

2020.09.24 06:28 memesandcommunism LETTER TO REDDIT CEO

Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc– If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc – If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
Dear Steve,
On June 1, you shared a letter on Reddit’s blog “Remember the Human – Black Lives Matter”. In this letter, you claim “as Snoos, we do not tolerate hate, racism, and violence, and while we have work to do to fight these on our platform, our values are clear.”
As of today, neither you nor any other Reddit admins have shared this letter anywhere on reddit.com. However, the response to this message was swift on Twitter, where you were rightfully labeled as hypocritical based on your long and well-recorded history of defending racism and white supremacy on this site.
Among the many responses was this message from former CEO of Reddit, Ellen Pao.
I am obligated to call you out: You should have shut down the_donald instead of amplifying it and its hate, racism, and violence. So much of what is happening now lies at your feet. You don't get to say BLM when reddit nurtures and monetizes white supremacy and hate all day long
Many others shared links and screenshots of your past statements saying “Open racism and slurs are fine to post on Reddit”.
The problem of Reddit’s leadership supporting and providing a platform for racist users and hateful communities has long been an issue. Nearly six years ago, dozens of subreddits signed the original open letter to the Reddit admins calling for action. While the Reddit admins acknowledged the letter and said it was a high priority to address this issue, extremely little has been done in the intervening years.
On June 5, you shared this update on /Announcements, Upcoming changes to our content policy, our board, and where we’re going from here. In the post, you stated that there is a need for continued adjustments of Reddit’s content policy to address racism and that this remains a priority. These continued statements that you hear us, that this is a priority, or that you are working on it are not enough. It has been five years since your return as CEO and this still remains Reddit’s most glaring problem.
Steve, if you and Reddit genuinely care about the values of standing up to racism and hate, then you need to back it up with real action. As moderators on this website who have dedicated countless hours to keeping this site running, we call on Reddit to take the following steps:
At /AgainstHateSubreddits, we have laid out the many failures of Steve time and again to stand up to white supremacy on this site time and time and time again.
With a website with the impact of Reddit on the broader conversations being held in communities around the world, this website needs real leadership and real action.
We hope that Reddit will not just share empty platitudes — but will take a meaningful stand against hate, and take these recommendations to heart.
This letter is co-signed by more than 200 300 350 430 550 650 800 communities representing well over 200 hundreds of millions of subscribers:

2020.09.23 21:51 Fordius25 The Bloody Pearl Of The Orient (Part 1)

So disclaimer: I am partially gonna rely on a narrative set by Wargame: Red Dragon's Pearl Of The Orient campaign which focuses on a Chinese invasion of Hong Kong and the UK's defense of the colony. I will use some aspects of the story, whilst fleshing out the narrative in a broader context and I have posted this in alternatehistory though I thought it'd be nice if I could post here. Also first time here :)
So the scene is set for the 1980s, where Britain and China exchange a war of words that quickly escalates to an actual one. I like to think this is a narrative one, and if I get good enough reception I can start inserting 'anecdotes' like WWZ style. The goal is to make a convincing narrative here.
1982-1983: Official negotiations between the People's Republic of China and Great Britain begin over the question of the future status of the Crown Colony of Hong Kong, as the lease on the New Territories nears its end in 1997. One of the last colonial territories in East Asia, Hong Kong had risen from the ashes of Japanese occupation in WWII and was thriving as a regional economic and manufacturing powerhouse. While tensions still lingered in the colony following the war: by the 1980s, British administration and law became generally accepted amongst the populace and Hong Kong remained a land of opportunity and prosperity as one of the four Asian Tigers.
For China, Hong Kong was a sore reminder of its 'century of humiliation' and the legacy of the 'unequal treaties' it had been coerced to sign. It was imperative for the country to reunify its former territories and correct the injustice that was the colonial rule by Britain and reclaim the territory. For Britain however, Hong Kong became an adopted region of the mother country, one which had prospered under British rule and one whose denizens associated strongly with British culture. The question in the minds of both sides was who would rule Hong Kong?
Britain takes the initiative and first proposes that China reclaim the sovereignty of Hong Kong, but that the British administration be allowed to continue in the territory. Deng Xiaoping firmly rejects this, making clear that China seeks the total return of the colony and that any colonial presence would not be tolerated. Deadlocks and obstructions in the tense negotiations continued- something that the people of Hong Kong do not fail to notice. The total uncertainty over the situation causes bank runs across the territory and the Hang Seng Index plummets to a historic low. Governor Edward Youde and the Executive Council in response seek to allay the chaos and vote in a massive stimulus bill to stabilize the deteriorating markets, the most comprehensive in the city's history to date. To support the colonial administration, Prime Minister Thatcher pledges in a session of Parliament to unwaveringly uphold Britain's obligations to the people of Hong Kong. The PRC also responds, assuring investors that Hong Kong's 'inevitable return' will not affect their standing and that it would be business as usual and accuses Britain of causing the financial ruin of the territory.
During another round of negotiations, Deng takes the offensive and bluntly threatens Thatcher an invasion of Hong Kong, and demolish any vestige of British rule. Not taking this aggression lightly, Thatcher responds that such an act will expose China's 'true nature' to the world and the meeting ends in discord. Panic further erupts in Hong Kong Island, as the Royal Hong Kong Police struggle to contain the chaos in the city. Meanwhile, the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party convenes in a secret meeting to discuss a planned invasion of Hong Kong. Similarly, a meeting of the Privy Council takes place which discusses a planned defense of the territory. It seemed increasingly clear that the question of invasion was not an if, but a when?
Though unsettling Governor Youde, Thatcher orders Hong Kong's garrison to be considerably reinforced while HMS Newcastle docks in Victoria Harbor and plans to sell HMS Antrim are scrapped. British forces in Brunei are put on alert and plans are made to send HMS Illustrious to reinforce a potential invasion. In the UN, ambassadors Sir John Thomson and Ling Qing fiercely battle it out on the diplomatic stage as countries from the Third World sympathize with China's 'decolonization struggle' while the Commonwealth Realms stay loyal to their 'mother country' and support Hong Kong's perceived desire to remain British. Resolutions in the Security Council are vetoed by the opposing side. The United States remains keen observers, contemplating whether a British defense is viable and whether to bolster the 'special relationship' it has with the UK.
Things come to a head in June 1983, when Prime Minister Thatcher announces a referendum in September, allowing Hong Kong to 'determine' whether it desires to remain under British sovereignty or otherwise. This infuriates the Chinese who denounce the plot as a ploy. As the date nears, pro-democracy and pro-Beijing voices viciously fight to persuade Hong Kongers to support their sides and China becomes more inclined to invade. A tense shooting across the border which injures five Chinese and British guards only intensifies the looming prospect.
In a final bid to recover negotiations between the two, a group of prominent Hong Kongers proposes to mediate a new round in the hopes that tensions de-escalate and some stability can be provided. However, like the preceding meetings, discussions once again end up nowhere and both countries consider any diplomacy to be futile
With less than three days before the deciding referendum takes place, China masses hundreds of Type 59 tanks less than 1km from the border in a show of force to intimidate Britain to back down. British guards watch carefully, waiting for any move by the Chinese with each side wondering whether they really would be going to war...
(Happy to hear feedback on this- if reception is good then I am happy to post part two)
