Hello,
26 year old, recent college graduate in Philosophy and Chemistry. I speak Spanish and a little Levantine Arabic, been a successful salesman for the past few years. 90th percentile on DLAB practice test, 99th on ASVAB. Generally unfulfilled at my current job path. Eagle scout, firefighter, emt etc. means I'm looking for something more active.
Looking towards a career in the intelligence community, and have been considering enlisting as a 37F. Cumulative/Major GPA of a 2.95/3.7 makes me think I wouldn't be competitive as a direct hire into CIA/DIA, or for OCS. Looking at other pathways to get experience and find a meaningful career, plus history of military service in my immediate family has me leaning towards that.
Recruiter was reserve CA, and keeps trying to push all the "doorkicker SF" stories, but I'm genuinely interested in what AD 37F roles and responsibilities are. I already read AR PAM 600-3 and would love to know what the life of an AD 37F is these days, since I understand there's both the tactical and strategic postings.
Looked through the wiki, and past postings already. I'd appreciate any and all advice, since at the end of the day I don't even know what I don't know, and I want to avoid any misconceptions.
Regards,

For a lot of reasons, I've thought about enlisting. I'm in ROTC, but I'm not super high on the OML (about in the middle, maybe the bottom end of the top third). As such, I won't likely get the branch I want (MI). I want to work in the intel field, and that's a big part of why I want to branch MI or combat arms, but I'm very unlikely to get it. So I'm thinking about enlisting.
Between COVID turning college on its head, and the fact I suck at learning in an online environment (I do fine, but I'm not learning shit), I've thought about putting my degree on hold and enlisting as a 35-series MOS (I'd also try to either get an option 40 for a slot to RASP, or at least get airborne in the contract and hopefully get to do cool-guy support shit) - getting a TS/SCI, potentially a language/airborne/etc, and then finishing my degree would likely put me in a solid position to apply to one of the agencies after I get out, or to finish my degree and then try to commission (either OCS or return to ROTC).
Am I stupid to even consider this? I'm only 19, and can finish my degree in two years, so I could continue to make progress on it while in as well.
TLDR: Cadet probably won't get preferred branch, sucks at online school, considering putting degree on hold to enlist 35-series and then finishing my degree and applying to the agencies.

How similar are 46S (Public Affairs Specialist) and 25V (Combat Documentation Specialist) in terms of job duties and transferrable skills to the civilian sector? I'm more interested in multimedia production than writing press releases, which is why 25V is more appealing on the surface, but I want to be as flexible as possible in case one MOS isn't available but the other is. Would you consider the two to be relatively good substitutes for one another?
Also, I heard a while back that 25V is getting rolled into 46S. Does anyone know more details about that, as well as an approximate timeline? I'm guessing the army moves pretty slow, so is this something I should even be worrying about at this point?

I am wondering whether the recruiting station I visited is following the guideline regarding COVID and what I should do to protect myself.
Today was my second time visiting that office, and I noticed nobody in the office was wearing the mask, unlike my first visit where my recruiter has at least asked if I want him to wear a mask (yes) the person (he didn't introduce himself, so idk) who helped me today (because the recruiter was gone today) didn't wear one, nor asked me if I wanted him to, and I really didn't want to make a scene so I just wore mine the whole time.
And then someone else in the office was like "I've been having this fevecold stuff, and i know it's cold cold from my wife" etc. Everyone in the office yelled covid but other than one person spraying lysol all over where he was sitting after he left, no further action was done...
Is this a common practice? I don't care how socially distanced people are, I don't feel safe being indoors with people outside of my family for a prolonged period of time without masks... Also, is there anything I can do about this?
Thanks!

Im interested in just one MOS and I heard the army is the only branch that let you reserve an a specific job, the MOS I want is 68p, I know is a rare MOS to get but if my ASVAB score qualifies me Im willing to wait 6 months or more for an opening, and I know a little bit about the DEP and the future soldier program but I don't know exactly how it works.

I posted this on last week's WQT, but I posted it last night so it might not have gotten around. To those recruiters out there or anyone with knowledge on this, are the jobs listed on Prior Service Business Rules a good guide on the jobs available for someone looking to come back in? In other words, should I compare only those jobs and see which one I would like, assuming it is available at the time? Or is there a chance I can be given the option of a job not listed on the Prior service business rules?
Link to Comment Chain
In general, for both active duty and reserve, how much time do you spend doing your actual MOS? Is it simply dependent on your particular MOS and/or unit? I imagine there are some MOS's, like 15Q Air Traffic Controller where you're almost always actually doing your job, but I can't find a great answer.

I am an idiot and probably have screwed myself. There's no way around this, bottom line I failed to disclose an incident from almost 12 years ago to my recruiter, on my paperwork and at MEPS. I'm trying to go infantry but I haven't done my interview with my career counselor or what have you yet.
 
In 2009 I got stopped by a cop, my brother's bong was in the car and I got the business end for it. I wasn't taken to jail, I wasn't fingerprinted, I didn't do any community service, cop had me call my parents, they came and got me, and then later I met with the DA's assistant or someone and paid some kind of fee. I barely remember and haven't thought about this in years so details are sketch. I have no excuse but this is why I didn't disclose this, I've passed a lot of background checks for bank jobs, security licenses, firearm licenses etc and this never came up so I just never got reminded of it, I have no criminal record besides this one thing which I'm not even sure is on my record.
 
Now I passed medical and am waiting on some other paperwork. My recruiter said I should be able to go back to Meps in a few days, but this old shit just got brought up to me when I was talking to my brother (same one). " He's basically like "what'd they say about that thing when you were a kid." And I'm like "fuuuck." Is it too late? How do I fix this? Is it even possible or am I now officially fraudulently attempting to enlist?
 
Yeah, I'm a moron. No way around it. I just want to make this right if at all possible.

AD ETSing (SOON™)considering reclassing into the USAR for a language-required MOS (35P / 35M). Looking for insight before I go to the reserve career counselor so I can be prepared.
1) What's the process for selecting a unit in the USAR? I've scoped out target languages of various units and know which units I would join. Do I just take all the UICs to the RCCC?
2) 35M is "language-required" but i've seen reddit posts within the last year, and literally talked to a 35M in-person yesterday, without a language. So whats the deal with that? I do not want to re-enlist without securing a spot at DLI.
3) 35M AIT. I am not a smooth talker; building rapport with people definitely isn't a strong suit. I'm confident I can learn a new language, and I'm nice at briefing, but making personal "small talk" isn't my thing. Would this be a problem to pass the course (or just exist as a 35M in general)?

Quick question
I scored really high on the Asvab, and I had a job picked out. However, I found out I was colorblind, and my job potential significantly diminished. Therefore, I was thinking of trying to enlist as a 31k Dog handler, but I’ve been told the chances of me getting this MOS are slim to none. I have a college degree, and I want to do something meaningful and purposeful that also allows me to make use of my intellect. Since I am limited to merely 10 MOS options, I have very little choice in what I can do. However, I’m asking because I know little to nothing about what military life entails, and I’d rather not join an MOS and end up despising it. The other options I was thinking of (if I can’t get military dog handler) are 13B, 13M and 13J. I’ve read that 13Ms go to Korea every 18 months, but would this even be worth it if it’s an egregious job? Also, is this true? Please let me know your guys’ experience. I greatly appreciate your opinions and time in responding to my qualms/questions.

I'm planning on joining up at the end of this year, late DecembeEarly January. I've looked though a lot of options, listened to stories and experiences from other people who are on or have finished the path I'd like to take, and I think I have a decent understanding of the route I'd like to take. Really, all I'd like is for you guys to nitpick my plan and tell me if something is unfeasible. Thank you for your time. TL;DR at the bottom
As you can tell from my username, my ultimate goal is Special Forces, 18D in particular. The first idea I had was the 18X contract, but after listening to people who have been down that road, and considering that I'm not the best already, I believe that it would be better to stay away from 18X. Instead, I'm going in as 68W. I'd be coming in with my EMT-B, which my recruiter (I know, never 100% trust recruiters) said would allow me to essentially go in as an E-4 Specialist. I'm going to try and get an Option 4 (5?) contract, which would mean I'm guaranteed Airborne. After completing BC, AIT, and hopefully AB, I'd drop a packet for RASP. A few different people who are in 68W have said that RASP is always taking medics, so that's perfect for me. Either way, I'd go through RASP, try to get attached to a scouting/forward unit (for land nav experience). I'd work with them, and possibly go to SOCM. After that, get used to working as a medic, bulk up, and drop a packet for Selection. From there, I've gotta crush selection and Q-course, as well as the additional 18D training. At which point, I'd be the highest trained type of medic in the military.
Don't misunderstand, I know that everything I've listed is incredibly hard. At any point, I could fuck up some part of my body and be SoL, or could fail something and be asked not to come back. It's not a walk in the park, it's some of the hardest training in the world. I don't care, I'm going to either crush it or get crushed.
TL;DR: Enlist as E-4 due to EMT-B cert > join as 68W > Finish AIT > Go Airborne > Go RASP > Work/bulk up > SOCM > Work > Selection > Beat it or die trying.

Hello! Just wanted to see if there was any prior service or currently serving officers that could answer some questions I had about the jobs on the officer side.
1.) What are the best jobs?
2.) Which ones have the best job prospects outside of the military?
3.) (Correct me if I'm wrong cause I don't now anything ,but) Does it really matter what job you choose sense their all managerial roles and probably won't give you the same skills you would learn as enlisted?

Hello,
26 year old, recent college graduate in Philosophy and Chemistry. I speak Spanish and a little Levantine Arabic, been a successful salesman for the past few years. 90th percentile on DLAB practice test, 99th on ASVAB. Generally unfulfilled at my current job path. Eagle scout, firefighter, emt etc. means I'm looking for something more active.
Looking towards a career in the intelligence community, and have been considering enlisting as a 37F. Cumulative/Major GPA of a 2.95/3.7 makes me think I wouldn't be competitive as a direct hire into CIA/DIA, or for OCS. Looking at other pathways to get experience and find a meaningful career, plus history of military service in my immediate family has me leaning towards that.
Recruiter was reserve CA, and keeps trying to push all the "doorkicker SF" stories, but I'm genuinely interested in what AD 37F roles and responsibilities are. I already read AR PAM 600-3 and would love to know what the life of an AD 37F is these days, since I understand there's both the tactical and strategic postings.
Looked through the wiki, and past postings already. I'd appreciate any and all advice, since at the end of the day I don't even know what I don't know, and I want to avoid any misconceptions.
Regards,

For a lot of reasons, I've thought about enlisting. I'm in ROTC, but I'm not super high on the OML (about in the middle, maybe the bottom end of the top third). As such, I won't likely get the branch I want (MI). I want to work in the intel field, and that's a big part of why I want to branch MI or combat arms, but I'm very unlikely to get it. So I'm thinking about enlisting.
Between COVID turning college on its head, and the fact I suck at learning in an online environment (I do fine, but I'm not learning shit), I've thought about putting my degree on hold and enlisting as a 35-series MOS (I'd also try to either get an option 40 for a slot to RASP, or at least get airborne in the contract and hopefully get to do cool-guy support shit) - getting a TS/SCI, potentially a language/airborne/etc, and then finishing my degree would likely put me in a solid position to apply to one of the agencies after I get out, or to finish my degree and then try to commission (either OCS or return to ROTC).
Am I stupid to even consider this? I'm only 19, and can finish my degree in two years, so I could continue to make progress on it while in as well.
TLDR: Cadet probably won't get preferred branch, sucks at online school, considering putting degree on hold to enlist 35-series and then finishing my degree and applying to the agencies.

How similar are 46S (Public Affairs Specialist) and 25V (Combat Documentation Specialist) in terms of job duties and transferrable skills to the civilian sector? I'm more interested in multimedia production than writing press releases, which is why 25V is more appealing on the surface, but I want to be as flexible as possible in case one MOS isn't available but the other is. Would you consider the two to be relatively good substitutes for one another?
Also, I heard a while back that 25V is getting rolled into 46S. Does anyone know more details about that, as well as an approximate timeline? I'm guessing the army moves pretty slow, so is this something I should even be worrying about at this point?

I am wondering whether the recruiting station I visited is following the guideline regarding COVID and what I should do to protect myself.
Today was my second time visiting that office, and I noticed nobody in the office was wearing the mask, unlike my first visit where my recruiter has at least asked if I want him to wear a mask (yes) the person (he didn't introduce himself, so idk) who helped me today (because the recruiter was gone today) didn't wear one, nor asked me if I wanted him to, and I really didn't want to make a scene so I just wore mine the whole time.
And then someone else in the office was like "I've been having this fevecold stuff, and i know it's cold cold from my wife" etc. Everyone in the office yelled covid but other than one person spraying lysol all over where he was sitting after he left, no further action was done...
Is this a common practice? I don't care how socially distanced people are, I don't feel safe being indoors with people outside of my family for a prolonged period of time without masks... Also, is there anything I can do about this?
Thanks!

I posted this on last week's WQT, but I posted it last night so it might not have gotten around. To those recruiters out there or anyone with knowledge on this, are the jobs listed on Prior Service Business Rules a good guide on the jobs available for someone looking to come back in? In other words, should I compare only those jobs and see which one I would like, assuming it is available at the time? Or is there a chance I can be given the option of a job not listed on the Prior service business rules?

In general, for both active duty and reserve, how much time do you spend doing your actual MOS? Is it simply dependent on your particular MOS and/or unit? I imagine there are some MOS's, like 15Q Air Traffic Controller where you're almost always actually doing your job, but I can't find a great answer.

I am an idiot and probably have screwed myself. There's no way around this, bottom line I failed to disclose an incident from almost 12 years ago to my recruiter, on my paperwork and at MEPS. I'm trying to go infantry but I haven't done my interview with my career counselor or what have you yet.
 
In 2009 I got stopped by a cop, my brother's bong was in the car and I got the business end for it. I wasn't taken to jail, I wasn't fingerprinted, I didn't do any community service, cop had me call my parents, they came and got me, and then later I met with the DA's assistant or someone and paid some kind of fee. I barely remember and haven't thought about this in years so details are sketch. I have no excuse but this is why I didn't disclose this, I've passed a lot of background checks for bank jobs, security licenses, firearm licenses etc and this never came up so I just never got reminded of it, I have no criminal record besides this one thing which I'm not even sure is on my record.
 
Now I passed medical and am waiting on some other paperwork. My recruiter said I should be able to go back to Meps in a few days, but this old shit just got brought up to me when I was talking to my brother (same one). " He's basically like "what'd they say about that thing when you were a kid." And I'm like "fuuuck." Is it too late? How do I fix this? Is it even possible or am I now officially fraudulently attempting to enlist?
 
Yeah, I'm a moron. No way around it. I just want to make this right if at all possible.

AD ETSing (SOON™)considering reclassing into the USAR for a language-required MOS (35P / 35M). Looking for insight before I go to the reserve career counselor so I can be prepared.
1) What's the process for selecting a unit in the USAR? I've scoped out target languages of various units and know which units I would join. Do I just take all the UICs to the RCCC?
2) 35M is "language-required" but i've seen reddit posts within the last year, and literally talked to a 35M in-person yesterday, without a language. So whats the deal with that? I do not want to re-enlist without securing a spot at DLI.
3) 35M AIT. I am not a smooth talker; building rapport with people definitely isn't a strong suit. I'm confident I can learn a new language, and I'm nice at briefing, but making personal "small talk" isn't my thing. Would this be a problem to pass the course (or just exist as a 35M in general)?

Quick question
I scored really high on the Asvab, and I had a job picked out. However, I found out I was colorblind, and my job potential significantly diminished. Therefore, I was thinking of trying to enlist as a 31k Dog handler, but I’ve been told the chances of me getting this MOS are slim to none. I have a college degree, and I want to do something meaningful and purposeful that also allows me to make use of my intellect. Since I am limited to merely 10 MOS options, I have very little choice in what I can do. However, I’m asking because I know little to nothing about what military life entails, and I’d rather not join an MOS and end up despising it. The other options I was thinking of (if I can’t get military dog handler) are 13B, 13M and 13J. I’ve read that 13Ms go to Korea every 18 months, but would this even be worth it if it’s an egregious job? Also, is this true? Please let me know your guys’ experience. I greatly appreciate your opinions and time in responding to my qualms/questions.

I'm planning on joining up at the end of this year, late DecembeEarly January. I've looked though a lot of options, listened to stories and experiences from other people who are on or have finished the path I'd like to take, and I think I have a decent understanding of the route I'd like to take. Really, all I'd like is for you guys to nitpick my plan and tell me if something is unfeasible. Thank you for your time. TL;DR at the bottom
As you can tell from my username, my ultimate goal is Special Forces, 18D in particular. The first idea I had was the 18X contract, but after listening to people who have been down that road, and considering that I'm not the best already, I believe that it would be better to stay away from 18X. Instead, I'm going in as 68W. I'd be coming in with my EMT-B, which my recruiter (I know, never 100% trust recruiters) said would allow me to essentially go in as an E-4 Specialist. I'm going to try and get an Option 4 (5?) contract, which would mean I'm guaranteed Airborne. After completing BC, AIT, and hopefully AB, I'd drop a packet for RASP. A few different people who are in 68W have said that RASP is always taking medics, so that's perfect for me. Either way, I'd go through RASP, try to get attached to a scouting/forward unit (for land nav experience). I'd work with them, and possibly go to SOCM. After that, get used to working as a medic, bulk up, and drop a packet for Selection. From there, I've gotta crush selection and Q-course, as well as the additional 18D training. At which point, I'd be the highest trained type of medic in the military.
Don't misunderstand, I know that everything I've listed is incredibly hard. At any point, I could fuck up some part of my body and be SoL, or could fail something and be asked not to come back. It's not a walk in the park, it's some of the hardest training in the world. I don't care, I'm going to either crush it or get crushed.
TL;DR: Enlist as E-4 due to EMT-B cert > join as 68W > Finish AIT > Go Airborne > Go RASP > Work/bulk up > SOCM > Work > Selection > Beat it or die trying.

I have a few old Toshiba laptops and I was wondering as someone who wouldn't claim to know much about linux/unix where to start?
1 - What are the advantages of linux/unix over stock standard Windows or MacOS?
2 - Is the programming abilities really better on a linux/unix machine?
3 - How safe is linux? (example; Xubuntu) As I have read somewhere that some, if not all linux/unix distributions need advanced/expert level set up as they might be open on a fresh install. I say this because most distributions are free and that might open the level playing field for unwanted exploiters.
4 - Are their any other reasons not described here why linux/unix might be favored? Specifically by people who choose Linux over MS and MacOS?
5 - Last bit; One laptop that may be given to me is a Toshiba roughly last used around 2009, it still has xp on it.
A) What is the most easiest way to install xubuntu on it (from an out of date xubuntu live disc)?
B) Also is Xubuntu my best choice here for a low load easy way to refresh and speed up an old laptop? C) Is Xubuntu safer than an old WinXP?
Advice and Answers appreciated.

2020.10.16 18:08 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 6 - Philadelphia Eagles(1-3-1) vs Baltimore Ravens (4-1)

Philadelphia Eagles (1-3-1) vs Baltimore Ravens (4-1)
The Eagles dug themselves deeper into a hole and lost their title as Kings of Shit Mountain with their disappointing loss to the Steelers last Sunday. Rookie WR Chase Claypool made the Eagles defense look silly over and over on his way to 4 TDs, including a 35 TD reception with under 3 minutes to go to seal the game. Jim Schwartz thought that he is smarter than everyone else and believed it was a good idea to put his failing LB Nate Gerry on Claypool despite the fact Claypool had already scored 3 TDs on the day and Gerry has given up 23 receptions on 23 targets for 267 yards 4 TDs and a 154.6 passer rating. Schwartz will most definitely trott Gerry out there this week against the Baltimore Ravens who will have reigning MVP QB Lamar Jackson out there who can pick apart defenses with his arm and his legs. Schwartz will have to gameplan better than he has in previous weeks to keep Jackson contained and ensure talented Baltimore TEs Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle have someone covering them who isn’t named Nate Gerry. The Eagles have the talent on the defensive line to keep Jackson in the pocket and force him to beat them with his arm where the Eagles will get a boost in the secondary with the return of Will Parks who will make his first start for the Eagles after signing in the offseason. That said, the talent hasn’t been missing on the defense outside of the LB position, instead the gameplans have been nonexistent from Jim Schwartz who consistently decides his scheme is the most important piece and he can just run it regardless of what the offense runs. If that mindset continues expect another L for the Eagles and another big fantasy day for Lamar Jackson. On the other side of the ball the Eagles actually look like they are beginning to click. The offensive line held the Steelers top rated pass defense in check for the better part of the day and a weapon has emerged from the depths of the practice squad. In the past two games, Carson Wentz has a perfect passing rating when targeting Travis Fulgham who has consistently been able to find openings in the defense and make big catches for the QB. Wentz may get Jackson and Jeffrey back this Sunday as well which would give him some more confidence that guys can get open and make catches, both are currently listed as questionable, so we will see. This game most likely ends up as another L for the Eagles, but if they want any chance to win they are going to need their QB to make some big plays and they are going to need their defense to slow down the Ravens high powered offense. Go Eagles!

Ravens 27 - Eagles 26
Baltimore (8-6) had a 27-17 lead and a first down at the Philadelphia 11 when Joe Flacco threw an interception to give the Eagles (5-9) another chance. Rookie Carson Wentz directed a drive that produced a field goal with 2:22 remaining. The Eagles got the ball back at their 41 with 1:39 to go. A 24-yard completion to tight end Zach Ertz and a pass interference call against rookie Tavon Young set up a 4-yard touchdown run by Wentz that got Philadelphia within a point. First-year coach Doug Pederson dropped his balls on the table and went for the victory, declining the conversion kick for a 2-point try. "I wanted to win the football game," Pederson said. Wentz threw over the middle to tight Jordan Matthews, who couldn't get his hands on a tipped ball and the Ravens won by a single point 27-26.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles took on their cross state rival after coming off their first win of the season the week before and the Eagles feel flat on their face making the trip across the state. Jim Schwartz showed up with zero game plan and had no answer to runs by Chase Claypool, despite the fact the Steelers used similar plays earlier this seasons. Claypool owned the Eagles Sunday scoring 4 TDs including one with under 3 minutes left to put the nail in the coffin when Jim Schwartz put one of the worst coverages LBs in the league Nate Gerry on Claypool 1v1 with no help. The offense played their best game of the year this season with a break out game by Travis Fulgham, but Jim Schwartz and the defense never gave them a shot.
Ravens - The Ravens took on their division rival Bengals in Week 5. The Baltimore Ravens defense arguably put up the best performance by any team in the NFL this season, allowing just a field goal to an overmatched Cincinnati Bengals team in a 27-3 victory Sunday. Baltimore shut down Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati offense, holding the Bengals to just 205 yards on the afternoon while forcing three turnovers and completely dominating the line of scrimmage in the win. The Ravens would have had a shutout if not for a late field goal by the Bengals that was purely done to break the shutout.

Stats to Know
Deep Passing
The body types are totally different, but WR Hollywood Brown poses a major deep threat to the Eagles defense, just as WR Chase Claypool did last week No WR in the league has more deep targets (beyond 20 yards) than Brown does, at 15, also catching 4 of 4 catchable deep balls. The next closes for the Eagles is Desean Jackson with 6 targets and 2 catches on 2 catchable deep balls.We don’t know if Desean will be a go for this game, but tell me which Eagle(s) you want defending Brown’s speed on deep balls or on end-arounds. Slay’s out and Mills is not fast. Looking at the QBs slinging these deep balls, Lamar Jackson is 7th in deep ball %, at 16.3% yet 24th in Adjusted Completion % (focusing the stat on QB agency). Wentz is slightly better in that statistic, good for 19th at 40%.
Matchups to Watch
Ravens Multifaceted Offense vs.Eagles Predictable Defense
The Ravens have a diverse offensive attack led by the reigning NFL MVP and a creative Offensive Coordinator that is more than capable of shredding the vanilla Eagles defense. Thus far in 2020, Schwartz has shown little in the way of molding his defense to help cater to the personnel he has in place that has also regressed in his tenure. I’ve said repeatedly throughout this season, as well as in the run up to this season, that the Eagles defense took several steps back in personnel and overall talent to where their strengths really can’t hide the deficiencies in the back end. Other than Darius Slay, the only member of the back seven who can cover, the Eagles struggle to match against opposing offenses in man and zone coverage. They have several hybrid players who theoretically are jacks of all trades and masters of none; in a cruel twist of fate, that was entirely predictable, the Eagles defense has players that struggle with any kind of basic trait that helps a modern defense leaving them as effectively jacks of no trade. Lamar Jackson will execute a diverse rushing attack with 3 capable RBs and his own athleticism that presents a unique challenge for every NFL defense to defend. The Ravens also have a quality offensive line to aid him in targeting a very good Tight End in Mark Andrews and other capable receivers. This offense uses motions and other misdirection plays, as well as play action, at near league leading rates. This is a problem for the Eagles defense as not only are they not talented enough to stop it, they struggle in alignment and execute against motion, misdirection, and play action. Their linebackers are unable to process coverage assignments and frequently blow assignments leading to big plays. Their corners, outside of Slay, struggle to cover at all. It’s a bad recipe for an overmatched defense. Schwartz will need to get this group to play at the level they did two weeks ago in San Francisco in an effort to slow down the Ravens offense. This is one of the best teams in the NFL. The Eagles offense can’t be counted on to continue to match its opponents in a shootout given their personnel limitations on that side of the ball. And when they do find success, the defense struggles to play complimentary football - just like last week. This unit needs to show up or this will likely be a blowout.
Eagles Receiving Weapons vs. Ravens Secondary
Even without Earl Thomas, the Ravens still field one of the best secondaries in the NFL and are capable of executing a number of coverage assignments. They possess two outstanding corners, Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters, who are able to match up with whatever scrubs the Eagles pull off the street this week. Travis Fulgham is fresh off a career day and looks like the first viable receiver the Eagles have had in some time but you have to figure at some point his sudden meteoric rise will normalize soon. That normalization could likely be this week against a formidable secondary. Regardless of when that comes, Fulgham has acquitted himself nicely in the offense and should be a full time starting forward. Absent the return of Desean Jackson or the season debut of Alshon Jeffery, this is a receiver group that is still mightily undermanned due to injury and a lackluster front office. Philly could stand to see a reemergence of Zach Ertz from the struggle bus and produce more than the very little he’s contributed this season so far. Lastly, the Eagles need Carson Wentz to pick up where he left off after a strong performance against the Steelers. PFF graded Wentz as a top 5 QB last week and it was easily his most complete performance of the season which is a notable brightspot in an otherwise disappointing start to the season. This Ravens defense is no joke and is very opportunistic as they force a lot of turnovers. Wentz’s margin for error is already very small given the situation around him but this game requires him to better manage the game on each play to give the offense a shot.
Eagles Decimated Offensive Line vs Ravens Attacking Defensive Front
The Eagles Offensive Line is a surprisingly decent group despite the ridiculous amount of injuries they continue to take on so far this season. The only projected starter left on the offensive line is center Jason Kelce. Lane Johnson is questionable heading into Sunday’s contest and hasn’t practiced this week. He likely won’t go as he’s been dealing with an ankle injury that’s plagued him since training camp. Even if he does return, Johnson is likely to continue to be plagued with the injury bug as long as he isn’t on injured reserve. Jeff Stoutland deserves all the praise in the world for coaching up the current cast of characters on the OL as they haven’t played as horribly as you might imagine against stiff competition. The Steelers defensive front is one of the best in football and the Eagles OL did more than enough to help put them in a position to win last week. They face another difficult test Sunday as they face a complete Ravens front with a DC in Wink Martindale that loves to blitz more than any DC in the NFL. Matthew Judon, Pernell McPhee, Tyus Bowser, and Calais Campbell are a strong unit; Martindale isn’t afraid to bring anyone on a blitz. This offensive line needs to continue to communicate well to handle the onslaught of pressure they are about to face on Sunday. They don’t have the depth of talent to be expected to win consistently; if they play like they did last week, that could be good enough. It’s a very tall order though.

2020.10.15 14:34 iamgodandashamed I drink a lot

I DRINK A LOT


I was born in 1968

At first it may be because of a failed relationship with a neighbour because she hooked
up with my brother. On that what sort of person does that, seriously. I wasn't ready for
that. I have decided not to swear on here. I will also not give away names or businesses.
They could possibly work it out but I won't name anyone. I just want to tell my story.
Later it became more of I just want to forget. And sleep. I can't kill myself or hurt
myself.

Some more reasons are that I was bullied throughout my life. My stepfather abused me. My
real dad was an alcoholic. My mother was controlling from my 20's. When I met the
neighbour I was 21. She kicked both my brother and I out if we didn't stop seeing her.
But then again the neighbour was a waste of space. Around the late 2000's my mum actually
wrote me a letter to say stop seeing a mutual friend.

Some local kids decided to throw condoms with water inside them because I was friends
with a gay guy. I knew he was gay. So what. But local kids thought it was wrong. They
were homophobic. I could really get them into trouble now with that. But why bother. I
really just drink so I will die soon hopefully. I have lost all hope for humanity.
They threw them at my car.

Anyways, after my abuse I still didn't work out my sexuality until probably 1994/1995.
I am not sure.

My father was an alcoholic and lost the family business early on in my life. My mum and
dad separated when I was 5. I remember little about my early childhood. Mainly things at
school. One home incident really stuck out early. I have a scar above my eye because a
steel ladder hit it. 5 stitches.

I am pretty sure my dad use to abuse my mum and gave us all the belt at one point. My
oldest brother acted out a lot and left when he was 16 I think.

After my parents separated I would visit my mum on weekends and holidays and see my
stepfather and his kids. Then in 1975 my mum and stepfather moved to another state.
Starting in December, 1978, I visited my mum and stepfather in the holidays staying
about 5 weeks. This happened in 1978,79,80,81. In June 1982 my dad had the accident and
I stayed with my mum for about 3 months.

Another incident was a German Shepard ( named that way at the time) attacked me when I
was walking home and I got some bad scratches and a lifetime fear of dogs. Found out
later the dog attacked someone else and was shot dead.

I am one of three brothers. The oldest is now dead from a heart attack but was an
alcoholic. The second oldest now has cancer but was born with brain damage. He was the
brother that the neighbour dumped me for him. ( again yea who does that?) Me. I am an
alcoholic and had been abused, bullied, cheated on, lost a son to a girl who cheated on
me. Yea so life is great hey.

I worked out my sexuality in 1994? Maybe. Well in 2000 I moved to a big city and started
driving a taxi. I left a winery because the lead hand wouldn't stop pushing his ideas on
me. One of my last conversations to him was that I would kill him and bury him. I think
I got the point across.

In 1978, I had a weird conversation with my stepsister. She asked me how I masturbated.
I didn't at that point. 2 years later after my mum and stepfather met another couple,
some of my abuse started. Yes it was sexual. I can't say I was forced. I wanted to do
it. I know that doesn't make it right. Its just what happened. With one of the sons of
the other family some things happened. We visited a nudist camp and nudist beach. The
other family had 6 children. They were a blended family. The oldest was about 16. The 2
stepsisters were a year older then me. The 2 stepbrother's were my age. There was a
younger girl. About 3 years younger. In 1982 I had extra relations with the other
brother and both stepsisters. We were all about 14 and 15 when this happened.

Actually in 1982, my father had a bad accident. He was going to buy a bottle of sherry
from a pub. Apparently he said he did a u-turn and hit a tree.
Actually he hit the tree at speed. He claimed someone ran him off the road.
He hit that tree with such force that the car, a ht panel van, had a rounded dent in the
front that it was amazing he was still alive. He had broken ribs, broken legs, and
troubles with eating and other things. He couldn't walk properly afterwards. When I saw
him in hospital I fainted. It was horrific. So I went to live with my mom. When he
recovered I went back to him. He continued to drink. We moved from one city to a town
then to a beach town. At this point I was experimenting with wearing women's clothes.
And in the beach town I continued with meeting men.

In 1984 my father died. He couldn't eat properly. And still drank. I started stealing
things from 1982 and ended up spending 3 months in a detention centre in 1983 ( I think)
then had probation until age 18. When I left the centre I again run away but my children
services officer found me. Anyways. I stopped acting out and lost my father.

In 1981, I was in a school in grade 8 in a high school that I knew nearly everyone in
the school. 1982 year 9 I did it then had to continue year 9 in another school where I
was bullied. 1983 I had to repeat year 9 but when I was sentenced to 3 months prison
after stealing bicycles, a boat and tried to steel a car and succeeded in stealing my
dad's car and drove to a big city, my dad took me to the police. In the police interviews
they first tried to pin a lot of stuff on me and i played along until i got sick of the
righteous cop who thought i was some sort of crime wave. I wanted to leave school. One
of the best things I made friends with the strongest guy in that place. Funny thing I
remember when a yacht won for a small country. And a song about still standing. I made
a coffee table too.

After my father's funeral me and the second oldest brother returned to my mother's and
stepfather's place. A caravan with all of my toys and coffee table, my brother's models
and telescopes and clothes was stolen as well as school photos. The caravan was recovered
but nothing else. Who steals photos and toys?

2 incidents that happened about 8 years apart in 2 different states really affected me
badly. The day after my birthday in 1986 I picked up my car from the pub, saw some
friends, then drove home when I got to my turn I saw some police cars and an ambulance
and a car that looked like it was sideswiped. Turns out the driver who was killed was a
local popular girl and was pushing her car after running out of fuel. The drunk driver
lost his licence and not much else. I reckon he should have been locked up for murder.
Another 8 years or so in another state a local kid hopped into his classic car and headed
into town but a big 4wd driven by another drunk driver was headed towards him and
collided and killed him. The drunk driver got a slap on the hand. He, too should have
been put in jail for murder. 2 more wastes of spaces.

I want to tell my story to everyone for free. I don't want money. I am a unemployed carer
for my brother who has cancer. If anyone wants to donate, donate to a worthy cause of
your choosing.

In year 7 the teacher's kid was in his class and because of that I got the cane for
several times. Of course I would like to find that kid now and whip him but he is another
waste of space.

The principal was also a waste of space and at one time kept us all on the parade ground
where someone fainted from the heat. À girl at the school who I liked lied that she
liked me but was joking. I did see her again in 1989 maybe. The third bf of the
neighbour punched me because I started stalking her, oh yes I did stalk her but again
who the hell hooks up with my brother after dumping me.

That couple later was arrested for drugs and later left the area. A local drunk who
abused me for the following and stalking ended up getting run over and died. I thought
at least one waste of space is now dead.

A stupid idiot died. Good.

There were some great experiences from my childhood. Like a cat that was blind that I
called pinky. She was a white albino cat. She was probably blind.

She was the greatest pet I ever had. She had a litter in my dad's doctor's case. She
once followed me all the way to the local shop ( about 4 kms) and back but I had to
carry her the last few hundred yards. But as all great things it ended with tragedy. I
came home from school and couldn't find her. My dad said he found her after being
attacked by dogs, her back broken he had to put her out of her misery. I have never
since had a pet like her. I don't know what happened to the  dogs, but another
reason I hate dogs.

Put it this way. If I had a gun and a dog walked up to me I would pull the trigger.

On my stepfather. Yes he abused me and another kid. His reputation could be ruined by
this. His paintings are hanging in a council office and a park is named after him. If
anyone thinks they should be changed then I will get that done. If not I will leave it.
My stepfather passed away in 2005 from a heart attack because he still smoked.

My mother was controlling. I think in the early 2000's I told my mum and stepfather
about a girl I was interested in. That didn't work out. I never told them any other
relationship again. I think I picked younger girls because I missed out on girls from
21 to 33. I met many girls from 2001 to 2019. Most were younger. Only one was older.
But they were always of legal age. I could never be an abuser. And I couldn't be with
a married woman either.

Some of the first girls were Aussie, but I soon moved to Asian ladies, even marrying a
Vietnamese girl so she could stay in Australia. It failed though cause she was too busy
making money as a hooker. She claimed she was a stripper but she would bring guys back
to the house. In 2010 I changed to mostly African girls. My last lady friend was
Hispanic.

A "gf" in 2017 to 2018 who I had a baby with who was still born because of her not
telling me that her water had broken. She also cheated on me. I don't know when it
started. Soon after leaving a job where I was bullied and treated like rubbish a guy
came to the house and she hoped I wasn't home. After some distinctive noises I did
leave. She wanted to have a second baby but after finding out she cheated I didn't want
to have another kid with her. Soon after we left the house and I went back to living in
my car.

Living in my car. Pretty sure I did this from December 2009. Anytime I had work in big
city. At one point I joined a gym so I could shower. Other times I went to swimming
pools. Later I found a truck service station that wouldn't mind who used the showers
as long as you bought something.  Actually some great meals and people at the
place. I couldn't really afford it but at least I wasn't paying rent.

Yes I am an alcoholic. I won't stop. I want to die. I am ashamed. If anyone wants to
stop me guess you will have to lock me up. In the world we have a megalomaniac who
wants to rule the world. We have minorities who are continually dying in custody. If
even one person doesn't do anything then nothing changes.

Met a lovely person in 2011. Things ended in 2012 when I left a Job to be with her. Job
later folded. Owners were another waste of space. But I loved this person. I know it
wouldn't have worked though. I was too old. If I had met her in, oh that wouldn't work
out. Let's just say if I was 20 years younger it would have been better.

I can only think of one woman who was my perfect match but that didn't work out. Or if
we were born in different times.

Pretty sure that I will never find true love or another job.

Thanks to the federal government for forgetting unemployed people over 35. Thanks
for one state government for blaming another government for closing state boarders
then recording more infections. And thanks to a waste of space.

Pandemic. Look at the numbers. One country has the most. This country never took
proper precautions. Their leader is another waste of space.

My new catch phrase. Another waste of space.

Jobs I left. 2 times at the winery. Firstly one couple couldn't work fast enough. I
know I am slow but this couple was retarded. Second time was because of that leading
hand. Driving taxis I just moved depots when I moved houses. In 2002 I worked for a guy
to deliver junk mail. He was another waste of space. I lived with him and his gf ( being
a friend of mine) I woke up one night to his swearing, actually turning out to be a
reminder to my dad.

I worked for a depot in 2008-09, because the mechanic thought it was funny to trap me
in the window. Guess what another waste of space.

I worked for a depot where the owner was a waste of space.

A dealership I worked for where I was bullied and that. Well everyone there was a waste
of space.

Oh yea bonus material. A girl and a cop tried to frame me for hitting her car. She
actually reversed into me. Her and parents ran a shop with adult videos and drugs. The
cop was involved. Anyways later on I heard he tried to pick up another girl and got his
brains blown out.

In that place before we moved I could get anything I wanted. For instance I could buy
a gun.

So should I keep drinking.

I also ran a few businesses of my own. And even one on an app. Again probably making
less then $10 an hour. More wastes of spaces.

Talk about slave labour. Even in this country they still want people to pick fruit
and be paid for weight. Again another waste of space.

From October 2018, after I left that house I would work up to 8 days then drive up to
the little country town and buy and cook dinner for my brother. Sometime in September
2019 I noticed my brother had a lump on his neck. He said he had it for awhile. I got
him to see a doctor and when he did she referred him to a ct scan. Then he referred to
an oncologist. He was diagnosed with incurable cancer.

Mum passed away in 2013 from cancer.

I moved all my stuff up to the house to care for my brother at the end of September.
Cook and shop and stuff. Drive him to his appointments. We have visited another town
which is 100kms away 26 times. My brother has had all of his treatments and all is good
for now.

I will no longer risk my brothers life now. I won't be meeting anyone for years.

Now to this year. I have almost paid off a big debt. Started in 1994/1995 with a
bankcard. Up to $13000. Paid it off in 2012 after my ute got written off. But then
made it again after the move to be with that girl. This year I also got the remainder
of me super. ( a stupid idea. Why not have your money now). Anyways bought some gadgets,
paid off debt and may have a road bike end of this year.

My body isn't too good. I am overweight and have high blood pressure. I had also
started smoking when I was 15 then gave up when I was 23. So at a later date I may
develop cancer as well. Do I want to know. Part of me does and my doctor has suggested
I find out via an x-ray. Part of me does not. We all die. I have now reached out to
see a psychologist to talk to someone about my mental health and life. But I also want
to tell my life story to my family, some day.

I stopped drinking the other day will now take it one day at a time. I know I have to
be here for my brother. After that I don't know.

2020.10.15 07:16 Wizamp [Progress] Through a Sunless Sea

Sunless Sea, I was iffy when I first played it but now with all this time, it feels good. I got used to the slow pondering speed of your usual vessel, the so-so combat, stat checks and the slowness of it. Really slow. But the atmosphere, variety of things to do, to explore, to check out is really high up there. I got caught up in it and it got me interested in both Fallen London and Sunless Skies. But it reached a fervor when I was able to get an ending, bar some needed items. A more... unorthodox ending, not an ambition you pick at the start but it was mine. I was hunting for what I needed, planned it all out, frantically, executed it, and it felt good. It felt great!
Flawed for sure, but if it wasn't for the genre of the month, I probably wouldn't have picked it back up. Even feel like trying out another captain right after beating it.
It's really bloody good if you're into this sort of thing. This month made me discover that I am.

2020.10.13 22:46 cincbus Introducing: The Spanish Royal Family

Royal Family Twitter: u/CasaReal
King Alfonso III (1886-1941)
Gonna go back one more generation than usual to start this wild ride.
Alfonso the III's father, Alfonso XII, died while his mother was pregnant with him, thus he was King upon his birth in 1886. She served as regent until his 16th birthday when he assumed full authority as King. After a series of poor choices, he aligned his fortunes to the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera, who fell from power in 1930. Municipal elections in 1931 resulted in a landslide victory for the Republican and Socialist parties, and they demanded the King abdicate the throne. The King went into exile but refused to abdicate.
While exiled, his eldest son, Alfonso, renounced his right to the throne to marry a commoner.
His second son, Jaime, renounced his rights to the throne because he was deaf.
This left his third son, Juan, as heir apparent. In 1947, General Francisco Franco declared Spain a monarchy yet again, calling it a “restoration”. However, he did not trust Juan as heir. As a result, in 1969, his son, Juan Carlos, was selected as King.
King Juan Carlos I (b. 1938) (abdicated)
Juan Carlos is the grandson of Alfonso XIII, the last king of Spain before the monarchy was abolished in 1931. He was born in exile in Rome, however was allowed back to Spain in 1948 to be further educated there. He joined the army, completing his officer training from 1955-1957. Afterwards, he spent time in both the naval school and the air force school, and later studied law, international political economy and public finance at the University of Madrid.
He was selected to be King of Spain over his father, Juan, by General Franco.
So, why did Franco bring back the monarchy? I found this answer online:
“We’re accustomed to believing a tyrant like Franco could do anything he wanted. Yet, in reality, his options were very limited, amounting to:
a) Do nothing OR appoint another military strongman to take his place.
b) Restore the republic.
c) Restore the monarchy.
There really are no further choices. Regarding (a), Franco was well aware that dictatorships are little more than the cult surrounding the person of the dictator, who is unable to transfer the cult to any 3rd party. So, a dead dictator equates to a dead dictatorhip, perhaps not immediately but before very long the ‘Franco Regime Without Franco’ was bound to implode. Franco accepted this to be an awkward truth, but he swallowed the bitter pill nonetheless.
Option (b) was never in the cards — Franco detested the Republic he fought to unseat and never even considered bring one back to govern Spain post-mortem.
That only leaves option (c). For Franco, the issue was not Monarchy Vs. Republic but rather (i) what sort of monarchy, and (ii.) incarnated by whom? The choices might seem straight-forward, but reality was rather complex since the legitimate heir to the throne (Juan de Bourbon, Count of Barcelona) was a man with whom Franco agreed on practically nothing. The Count of Barcelona made his political philosophies publicly know in the so-called Laussane Manifesto (Mar, 1945), the contents of which were diametrically opposed to the Franco Regime on practically all matters of importance.
Hence, in ’47 Franco did the only thing he regarded as workable — restoring the monarchy in theory but leaving the throne vacant, pending an eventual nomination to fill the seat. The temporary vacancy last 22 years when the Count’s son (Juan Carlos I) was officially designated as heir to the dual roles of head-of-state & commander-in-chief of the armed forces.”
Furthermore, Franco disliked Juan (father of Juan Carlos), whom he suspected of being an Anglophile (Franco despised the British and referred to Great Britain as “perfidious Albion”); he was also determined to be the sole arbiter of Spain’s destiny. And so he was. For the next thirty-six years, Franco remained the country’s unchallenged caudillo, or strongman, and although he declared Spain a monarchy once again, in 1947, he kept the throne empty, leaving Don Juan to languish and fret in neighboring Portugal, even as Franco himself assumed the role of dispenser of noble titles.
In a cruelly Shakespearean twist, Franco asked Don Juan to send him his son, Juan Carlos, who was then ten, to be educated and groomed under Franco’s supervision. In 1969, when Juan Carlos was thirty-one, Franco summoned him and informed the young man of his decision to make him his successor, with the title of King of Spain . (Excerpt from this article)
Juan Carlos met and consulted with Franco many times, standing next to him at ceremonies, publicly supporting his regime, and praising his government. Franco gave full control to Juan Carlos 3 weeks before his death in 1975. Juan Carlo’s position was further legitimized on 1977 when his father formally renounced his claim to the throne.
On paper, Juan Carlos retained fairly extensive reserve powers. He was the guardian of the Constitution and was responsible for ensuring that it was obeyed. In practice, since the passage of the Constitution (and especially since 1982), he took a mostly non-partisan and representative role, acting almost entirely on the advice of the government.
Juan Carlos enjoyed extreme popularity in Spain for many years until multiple scandals (detailed below) were made public about him and his family. As a result, he abdicated the throne on behalf of his son.
Coup D'Etat
Ever since the dictator Francisco Franco had died in 1975, Spain had been changing at the speed of light. Democratic reform was the watchword of the decade, and each reform came one after the other. King Juan Carlos had handed power to parliament and instituted a new constitution. It was all way too fast for Spain's conservatives. According to history.com, it came to a head on February 23, 1981. Lieutenant Colonel Antonio Tejero led 200 members of the civil guard in invading the Cortes, Spain's legislature building. They fired shots in the air and took the parliament hostage.
Spaniards were glued to their television sets for 18 hours as the band of civil guards held the Cortes. King Juan Carlos appealed to the Spanish army to condemn these renegades and affirm their loyalty to the new constitution. The army did and the bandits had to retreat in shame, thus preserving Spain's democracy.
Shooting of Little Brother
In 1956, at age 18, he shot his younger brother Alfonso in the head while the two were playing with a revolver. He has maintained throughout his life that it was an accident, however Alfonso passed away as a result of his injuries.
The financial scandal
Juan Carlos’s daughter, Princess Cristina, is married to Inaki Urdangarin. Urdangarin and his ex-business associate, Diego Torres, were the leading figures in the Nóos Institute, a non-profit that secured no-bid contracts from the regional governments of Valencia and the Balearic Islands using Urdangarin’s influence.Urdangarin and Torres also used their non-profit to divert around €6.2 million from public contracts secured for organizing sports events into private accounts. Urdangarin’s wife, Cristina de Borbón, sat on the board of a company, Aizoon, that was allegedly used to channel part of these funds. She was made to testify in the case, and was ultimately fined for having benefited from her husband’s scheme, but was acquitted of tax fraud complicity.
In June 2018 he was sentenced to 5 years and 10 months in prison; he is currently imprisoned in Ávila.
The hunting trip
In 2012 the King injured himself on an elephant hunting trip in Botswana. At a time when Spainairds were suffering from a lagging economy, this trip was viewed as obscene in terms of expenses and extravagance. Spain’s unemployment was at 23%, and nearly 50% for young workers. To make matters worse, he was the honorary president of the Spanish branch of the World Wildlife Fund.
The public was only made aware of the trip because the King was injured and had to be helicoptered from the scene. Even worse - his mistress was there with him.
Abdication
In 2014 Juan Carlos announced his plans to abdicate the throne in favor of his son, Felipe.
Post-Abdication Scandals
More recently, it emerged that Juan Carlos had accepted a previously undeclared “gift” of a hundred million dollars from Saudi Arabia’s late King Abdullah—allegedly a bribe in return for his help in arranging a lucrative fast-rail-construction contract.
Further roiling the public, one of Juan Carlos’s former lovers, a Danish-born events organizer named Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein—who had accompanied him on his Botswana safari—has acknowledged that Juan Carlos had given her, some years ago, sixty-five million euros (worth about eighty-four million dollars at the time). This “gift” is believed to have come out of the funds given to Juan Carlos by King Abdullah.
The latest bombshell shaking the royal house involves secret audio recordings of princess Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, a German aristocrat living in Monte Carlo who for years has been romantically linked to the 80-year-old former king and now accuses him of using her name to buy property in Morocco, of accumulating a secret fortune hidden in several Swiss bank accounts under the name of one of his cousins, Alvaro d'Orleans Bourbon, of using fake cut-outs to commit tax fraud and of taking millions in commissions on state contracts.
As a result, the current King Felipe announced he would renounce his personal inheritance from his father and that his father would no longer receive a royal allowance. Afterwards, Juan Carlos vanished.
Exile
In August of this year (2020), Juan Carlos sent a public letter to King Felipe VI, saying that he would be leaving the country due to “the public repercussions that certain past events in [his] private life are generating.” Later reports speculated that he had either gone to Portugal, where his father, Don Juan de Borbón, lived in exile for part of his life, or to the Dominican Republic, which he has visited multiple times. It’s a sign that the figurehead of Spanish democracy understands that he has endangered his legacy—and the monarchy itself.
It has not been published where Juan Carlos is currently living, however photos have been obtained that appear to show Juan Carlos disembarking a plane in Abu Dhabi.

Marriage:
Juan Carlos married Princess Sofia of Greece and Denmark, daughter of the King of Greece in 1962. In an effort for young, suitable European royals to meet and mingle (and also to boost tourism in Greece), Sophia’s mother arranged a Mediterranean cruise on the Greek yacht Agamemnon in 1954. Several teenaged and twenty-something royals were invited on the trip touring a handful of Greek islands. Juan Carlos and Sofia were among the young royals on the cruise.
They met up at additional weddings and events over the next several years, and were officially reunited in Rome at the 1960 Olympic Games. The Greek royal family held a dinner for the Spanish guests onboard their ship, Polemistis. Following the Olympics, Juan Carlos and his family were invited to spend Christmas 1960 in Greece.
In 1961, Sofia traveled to the UK to attend the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Kent. Juan Carlos was picked to serve as her escort. Following the wedding, Juan Carlos spent the summer of 1961 in Greece and the two announced their engagement in 1961.
Due to Juan Carlos’ uneasy position in Spain, an Athens wedding was planned for May, the beginning of the tourist season in Greece. The celebrations involved 4 ½ months of nearly round-the-clock preparation headed by Colonel Dimitri Levidis, Grand Marshal of the Greek royal court.
Their marriage has never been a happy one and Juan Carlos is known to have had multiple affairs. Though the King is in exile, they remain married, however it is known that they have lived largely separate lives for many years.

Queen Sofia (b. 1938)
Sofia is the eldest child of King Paul of Greece, and is the daughter, sister, wife, and mother of a King. She was educated at a boarding school in Germany, then studied childcare, music, and archeology in Athens. She was a reserve member of Greece’s gold medal winning sailing team at the 1960 Olympic games.
Sofia is now immensely popular in Spain. She is known to quietly endure the monarchy’s trials, putting her own professional obligations ahead of anything else. This was not, however, always the case. Throughout her reign she has been regarded with skepticism because of her foreign background and mediocre Spanish skills.
In 2008, Queen Sofía shared some of her political ideology during an interview with journalist Pilar Urbano. One of them was her belief that same-sex marriage should not be called marriage. "If those persons want to live together, dress up as bride and groom and get married, they can do so, but that should not be called marriage because it is not," the queen is quoted as saying in Urbano's book.
Her controversial comments about same-sex marriage particularly elicited outrage among liberal groups, and the Royal Palace quickly shared an apology but qualified it by implying she had been misquoted.
Though her husband is in exile, Sofia has remained in Spain and continues to undertake official duties on behalf of her son, the King. She is a vital weapon in Felipe VI’s battle to shore up the popularity of a monarchy hit by scandal and now, suggestions from some politicians that it might have seen better days. Consistently one of the most admired members of the Spanish Royal Family, the enduring affection and respect that Queen Sofía inspires will be needed by her son as he faces a turbulent future for the monarchy.
She speaks Greek, English, German and Spanish.

King Felipe VI (b. 1968)
Ascended the throne in 2014 upon the abdication of his father. He is head of state and commander-in-chief of the Spanish Armed Forces. He attended high school in Canada and studied at the Autonomous University of Madrid. He completed his academic studies by obtaining a Master of Science in Foreign Service degree from Georgetown, where he was the roommate of his cousin Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.
From 1985-1993 he spent time completing his military training.
Felipe speaks Spanish, Catalan, French, English, and Greek.
He was a member of the Spanish Olympic sailing team at the Barcelona games in 1992 and was the Spanish team’s flag bearer.
Marriage:
The exact details around how Felipe and Letizia met are unknown, however it is reported that they met at a dinner party in 2003. They dated in secret for more than a year before surprising the public with their engagement in 2003.The two were married in 2004 in Madrid.

Queen Letizia (b. 1972)
Letizia was born in Spain, the daughter of a journalist and registered nurse. She completed a bachelor’s degree in journalism as well as a master’s degree in audiovisual journalism. She worked as the evening anchor of the TVE evening news, the most viewed newscast in Spain. She reported from Washington DC in 2000 on the presidential elections, 2001 from Ground Zero, and 2003 from Iraq.
She was actually married once before Felipe to a writer and high school teacher after dating for almost 10 years. Their marriage lasted one year.
Letizia is far from Spain’s most popular member of the royal family. There was a public spat with her mother-in-law, and it made news when she scolded her fiance for interrupting her during their engagement interview.
She is known for her fashion and beauty. In 2008 she underwent surgery on her nose to “correct a respiratory problem”, however afterwards her nose was notably different.
Author's Note: I feel like I gave a negative impression of Letizia here, but to be honest it's a bit hard to find information about heher personality. I would love someone who is more familiar to fill us all in.
Watch her speak in English here
Felipe and Letizia have two daughters:
Crown Princess Leonor, Princess of Asturias (b. 2005)
Leonor is heir presumptive to the throne of Spain. She does not go by Crown Princess, but rather by Princess of Asturias, the title given to the heirs in Spain (like Prince of Wales in the UK). The Spanish monarchy operates under a system of male-preference cognatic primogeniture, meaning if Felipe were to have a male heir he would replace Leonor in the line of succession. Felipe and Letizia appear to be done having children, however.
In 2018, she was invested by her father with the Order of the Golden Fleece, the most senior order in Spain and the highest award the King can bestow. She is one of only 4 females to be inducted into it.
The other 3 women are Queen Elizabeth, Princess Beatrix, and Queen Margrethe of Denmark (no big deal!!!)
See the proud fathedaughter moment here.
In 2019, at age 14, she gave a speech in both English and Spanish at the Princess of Asturias Awards Ceremony. (such poise!!)
Another speech (her proud parents *I'm crying*!!)
Infanta Sofia (b. 2007)
Sofia is the second daughter of the King and Queen. She is a student in Madrid.
See photos of the family from Spain’s National Day on 10/12. https://twitter.com/CasaReal/status/1315601785382416384?s=20
Infanta Elena, Duchess of Lugo (b. 1963)
Elena is the eldest child of King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia, however because Spain operates under male-preference cognatic primogeniture, her younger brother Felipe is King of Spain.
She married Jamie de Marichalar y Saenz de Tejada in Seville and has two children:
Elena and Jamie divorced in 2009. She undertakes engagements on behalf of her brother, the King.
Infanta Cristina, (stripped of title Duchess of Palma de Mallorca) (b. 1965)
Cristina was born in Madrid, the younger daughter of the King and Queen. She is a sailor and competed in the 1988 summer Olympics. She completed a degree in political science from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, then an MA in international relations from New York University in 1990. She then worked at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris.
She speaks Spanish, Catalan, English, French, and Greek.
Cristina married handball player Inaki Urdangarin in Barcelona in 1997. They have four children:
I talked about this above, but she and her husband were investigated and tried for fraud for their ties to a corruption scandal involving a company they owned. Cristina was acquitted, however her husband is currently serving a prison sentence.
Because of the scandal, her brother officially stripped her of her title in 2015. Her right of succession and the royal title of Infanta were unaffected.

A Monarchy in Trouble
Though Felipe and his mother, Queen Sofia, are well-liked, support for the monarchy in Spain has always been thin at best. Coupled with all of the scandals discussed above, Felipe is tasked with saving a monarchy that at times is extremely unpopular with the public. He has had to publicly distance himself from his father, his sister, and other family friends involved in these scandals. This has eroded the appearance of family unity in the monarchy.
From an article:
Despite his attractive family and relative youth, Felipe has struggled to maintain the level of popularity he had heading into his current position. As head of state and commander in chief of the armed forces as well as king, he looks all-powerful on paper, but like many other royals his role is more figurehead than policy-maker. Spain's monarch is looked to for guidance and leadership, though, and he can certainly still be blamed when things go wrong.
Felipe, who in 2015 cut his own salary by almost 20 percent as the country continued to pull itself out of its recession, received a four-minute ovation after delivering his annual address marking the opening of Spain's new legislative session in February, in which he said that the opposing parties that have formed the current coalition government must come together, that "the time has come for words, for arguments and for reasoning, from a position of mutual respect."
To add to his troubles, Catalonia has been trying to split from Spain and gain independence for quite sometime, and Catalonian’s do not want a monarchy. In fact, they recently passed a non-binding motion condemning the monarchy in the wake of Juan Carlos’s departure from Spain. The proposal “Catalonia is a republic and does not want a king” was passed by 69 votes in favor and 65 against. In a recent article out of Catalonia, less than 15% of Catalans prefer having a king to a republic.
As a result, Felipe and Letizia have been pulling out all of the stops to present a united family front and a strong monarchy to the public - they have been undertaking public engagements more often, invited the press into their home, and we’re seeing more and more of their two daughters in an attempt to improve their favorability in Spain.

2020.10.12 10:09 chunderbuns 2006 or 2009 Jetta TDI

I'm looking at buying a used MKV Jetta TDI in the near future and need advice on which engine I should be looking for. I've found 2 different forum threads asking the same question, but they were dated (2010/11) and I want to make sure there isn't newer information that would change experts' recommendations. So far I've heard arguments for both the BRM and CBEA(?) engines. The 2009 Jettas have the newer head unit, more powetorque, and a 6-speed manual which is all very enticing. I've also read that the 2006 models have slightly better fuel economy? I'm very new to the world of TDIs and would love help with this dilemma. Thanks.

2020.10.09 17:50 GMS_ [WTS] Older Gen NAR CATs (OH)

SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD

Doing some cleaning / organizing of a plastic tote full of remnants of a former life (#armydays) and stumbled upon a handful of CATs. These were likely issued to me between 2009 and 2013 -- in preparation for / during / after deployments or a NTC rotation. Some were likely carried at some point or got kicked around at the bottom of a bag (a bit dusty), and others I just pulled out of the crumbling plastic wrapper.
No dates or inking on any of the bands, the rod securing strap is black, double-routed buckle, and the tip isn't red. There is marking / labeling on the plastic plate part. All are in good shape-no fraying, bad hook-and-loop, broken rods, etc etc etc (most importantly, unused!). Definitely an older gen-- no indication, but after some looking they're maybe G2s. I'd trust my life / limb with them in combat tomorrow, and to be honest, find it hard to believe that there are any components that corrode / break down worthy of an expiration date. Seems like some sort of medical-industrial complex scam if you ask me. *shrug*
Includes a high-speed, low-drag, hand-made, custom crafted, bespoke ranger band made from a blown-out bike tube at no extra charge. My treat.
Pricing these days is hard. How about $17 per if you buy 1-2, $15 per for 3-4, and $65 (13/) if you buy them all (that's 5 of them). Figure shipping and my time running to the post office is worth a couple bucks and just trying to account for that.
Dibs rule the day; price is shipped (clearly). PayPal preferred (add 3% for G&S), but I use all the apps, so really whatever works for you works for me. No notes.

2020.10.08 17:25 Momumnonuzdays Throwback Write-Up #22: Danny Brown - Detroit State of Mind III

Artist: Danny Brown
Album: Detroit State of Mind Pt. III
Release Date: 2009

Introduction

Danny Brown has been a big name in hip hop since his breakout album XXX in 2011. Since then he’s only gotten more famous and more respected. Initially I wanted my write up to be an argument for why Danny Brown is the greatest rapper ever. However, other people with better skills at writing, and more importantly writing about music, have accomplished that. Including fellow redditors and folks on Twitter. So instead, I’d like my write up to be a very specific review of Danny Brown all the way about over a decade ago in 2009, before he blew up but during his hard grind getting to notoriety.

Background

Twenty-eight year old Danny Brown is a bit of an anomaly in hip-hop, a genre that is young in its history and dominated by younger artists. First getting into the rap game with the group Rese'vor Dogs in 2003, but has been an inspiring rapper since kindergarten according to a recent interview with Detroit Metro Times. Danny is not new to the game but it was only in the last couple of years that he’s started making waves. It was only after his release from jail in 2007 that Danny felt the need to take his passion to the next level.
That same year Danny released the first in what would become the Detroit State of Mind mixtape series. And he has not let up on releasing music since. His discography is quickly becoming impressive with Detroit State of Mind III being the most recent in the series, along with a mixtape produced by fellow Detroit-native, Nick Speed, Hot Soup. And we are anticipating a fourth Detroit State of Mind mixtape along with his first studio album, The Hybrid. Danny has been grinding.
What stands out the most about Danny Brown is his allegiance to Detroit. He credits the city for influencing him the most, from the city’s history of Motown, funk, and rock, to the scenery of a city abandoned.
“Brown doesn't have a home per se; rather, he crashes in three separate spots. ‘I kind of live on I-94, man,’ Brown cracks. He's got his studio and Xbox at his Grandma Nelly's east side house off Flanders Street. He crashes on Grandma Tina's couch on the west side off Linwood, and he hangs out at Uncle Too's house next door — the house he grew up in.”
It is these influences that come out so vibrantly in his most recent mixtape, Detroit State of Mind Pt. III.

Album Review

An interesting issue I ran into while working on this write-up is how little information there is on Danny’s works before The Hybrid. Searches for the Detroit State of Mind series brought up a lot of examples of people struggling to even find downloads for a couple of years, and even today the Genius page only has lyrics for 6/13 songs from the tape. And four of those are only because Danny released a few songs on this tape and on Hot Soup (Whatupdoe, Sittin’ so High, Squeeze Precisely, Streets of Detroit). There were also a lot of dead pages of interviews and information that are lost even to Web Archives.
However, the music persists. Even if a lot of the extraneous context is lost, the music speaks for itself. The most outstanding aspect of Danny Brown’s Detroit State of Mind series is how well he represents Detroit throughout them. When we look specifically at Danny’s Musical Influences, his ability to lyrically take us to Detroit, and the representation of himself as a Detroit-native in Detroit State of Mind III, it becomes overwhelmingly clear that Danny will always put his city on his back.

Musical Influences

Detroit holds claim to birthing musical subgenres, like Motown, and being the best representation of other subgenres, like Blues and Soul. Detroit is also incredibly proud of its place in musical history, and when you look at musical acts that come from Detroit, that history is undeniable. Danny celebrates Detroit’s musical history in many ways, of course by adding to the history by placing himself securely as the greatest rapper ever, but also through sampling on his songs. The best examples of this are in the songs Way it Goes and Streets of Detroit. I’ll admit I’m not the most musically versed, and so the samples very likely have a greater importance than I’m giving them, but even for those like me you can hear Danny respecting those before him in his own music.

Detroit

Detroit is even more than it’s contributions to music, though that is a big part of the city. Detroit is the Motor City, it’s the second largest city in the Midwest, it’s diverse, and it is also one of the most poignant examples of urban decay in the United States and apparently the largest US City to file for bankruptcy. It is mostly that declining, decaying city that Danny grew up in, and he reps it all the same.
"I get my influences over here," Brown says. "I just soak up the scenery and go back to the east side and write it. It's crazy. Even if I get off of Flanders Street I'll probably still go back there to write."
The most common theme in all of Danny Brown’s music is how much struggling is part of life in The D. Never Say Never is one of the best examples of this on DSOM3.
Cold outside, even worse in the house, heat don’t work and the lights went out.
It’s impossible to not be shaped by the poverty you live through, and Danny clearly keeps that experience as a part of him. The choices of a child affect the grown man. Tried to tell it to the judge but he didn’t understand. So he gave me some time but this whole situation inspired this rhyme. He makes it clear again and again in his music that there weren’t many options but hustling, but he also credits the whole situation for giving him perspective and putting him where he’s at now, chasing his real dream. From Way it Goes:
Staring in the mirror, hearing voices in my head,/ Saying: ‘Take advantage cause you're 'posed to been dead’/ Staying on a mission for the nickels and the dimes/ Blowing on chronic while I'm peeking out the blinds

Danny

While Danny himself has mentioned that The Hybrid is where he found his voice and unique style was fleshed out the best (namely his high-pitched rapping). The beginnings of that voice and his famous punch lines are spread throughout his early mixtapes. The songs highlighted below are where it is the most pronounced and you know Danny has been wildin’ all his life
Fuck bitches like AIDS don't exist/I'm a young Ruthless n\*** on some Eazy-E shit.*
What Up Doe is one of the songs that is featured on two separate mixtapes, and honestly I get it, it’s a solid song and Danny is in full form on it. Smoke green like I shot a Ninja Turtle/ Matta fact popped Prince, way I smoke Purple. He’s braggadocios, crude, and violent and it’s exactly what you want from a Danny Brown banger. Squeeze Precisely is much the same, a classic Danny Brown banger Drop science like teenage pregnancy/ In a cutty, same color as some celery. He’s got silly punch lines and great rhymes throughout. One of my favorite things Danny does consistently is tell you why he’s better than you Spent a hundred on a collar bone/ Danny Brown got white like Styrofoam/ The only you thing you running is your legs/ Got gan by the boat, why you blowing on regs?
Another common theme in Danny Brown’s music is how well he mixes flexing with the desperation of Detroit Cutty same color as a dirty fish aquarium. And all of these different aspects of his personality are so heavily tied to his city and his upbringing
"It's a real Fred Sanford situation at Too's," Brown says with a smile. His uncle pays the bills scrapping metal, which covers the kitchen floor. An open stove provides the heat. It's definitely real in Brown's neighborhoods. (And kicking it in Uncle Too's living room with friends and family is also real fun.)
And Danny does it all so authentically and ostentatiously that it makes you respect him even more.

2020.10.07 22:14 ColbyBB My alien experiences

Hi, so heres a bit of a long story. Basically throughout my life I (19) had some weird and unexplainable things happen. Im half skeptical/half believer in all of them though. Ill do it in a timeline from when I a baby, to now. - This is something I recently found out about from my mom, or she told me and I forgot. I was only around two at the time, and my mom was outside on the porch on the phone with someone. While she was chatting, a bright white orb appeared out of nowhere, flew directly in her face, and flew off disappearing. It was about the size of a soccer ball, maybe a bit bigger. It was really bright, fast, and was able to fade away. She thought it was a ghost of someone that died recently at the time but thats a whole other can of worms than aliens lol (This whole experience could also be just a hallucination from grief maybe?)
-When I was a bit older, I always had a reoccurring dream of a green figure with a big head appearing from the foot of my parents bed (I slept with my parents when I was little) grabbing me by the heels, and dragging me down, and then I woke up. A side note Ill add is that Id scream for my parents, abut they wouldn't wake up, which was always an odd detail that occurred as well. (Alien believer side says its an abduction but my logical side says its just a nightmare thats similar to one)
-This ones a bit weirder. Around the time I was 8 (I cant remember the exact details like my exact age or date) I was going to my friends house on my bike (we lived in a cul-de-sac and every experience previous to this happened on the same street) I got to the end of the street since he lived right on the end, and I parked my bike on the light post, and i looked to woods that ends the street. I looked back and about 150 feet in front of me was what to be blunt, looked like a tall and slender greenish figure. Like a gray alien, but it had black, almost angry shaped eyes, similar to a gray. Also having a purple robe. It just stared at me, its arms stretched out like it wanted me to come to it. Of course by seeing this instead of driving off on my bike, I Just bolted to my friends house. (Their yard is about 130 feet so it took a few seconds even when I was running at full speed.) So I just started POUNDING on the door for them to let me in, and of course to my luck nobody was home. I looked back at the woods, and now it was EVEN CLOSER about a 100 feet away from me, still staying inside the woods. It was in the same outstretched position, I didnt hear it move through the leaves, AND it didnt look out of breath from swiftly moving through the woods that would be required to get that close to me. That, paired with the fact it could BLINK made it obvious it wasnt a costume. (That and the fact no one is weird enough to go to a random street in the middle of NOWHERE with a suit advanced enough to blink, around summer, IN 2009 NO LESS, for the extreeeeemely off chance they could scare one of the few kids that live on that street if they chose to go to that exact spot.) After seing it was getting closer I bolted back for my bike and rode off, never seeing it again. Someone said it was a reptilian and I was smart to run, but idk the specifics of alien "types". A year or so later, I moved, and have been moving to different houses over the span of a few years, leading up to this year with my final story
-Along with the first orb story, I learned that ANOTHER orb was spotted by my mom RECENTLY. She owns a ring doorbell, and usually checks the archived footage whenever something was spotted moving when she wakes up in the morning. It happened on September 30th. Early in the morning when it was still dark. She clicked on one of the videos and she saw a white orb off to the side on the porch, it came close to the door, and flew off before fading away. Honestly all these things put together are super weird, so idk what to make of it

2020.10.04 17:00 8ily3 in Samantha's name

The story begins with Samantha a 14 year old young lady. She was an orphaned that lived a hard life, it was in 2052 where Artificial intelligence robots toke over the lands of the nations and controlled most of the administration around the globe. In this era, it was normal to see orphaned kids, since their parents have been sent to war against the Ai, those Ai toke everything that used to be owned by us. Samantha wasn’t your ordinary girl she was born in the heart of the battlefield where it’s normal to hear bombs and the beaming noises of the powerful lasers that could cut a building in a half, which caused her parents to be double protective of her. Her mother Sophia 29 years of age, white, redheaded and blue eyed and short about 164 cm also with a beautiful freckles, and she’s an owner of a gun shop that wasn’t really filled with guns instead lasers that will guarantee a kill. Since she was a nerd that likes guns for a strong reason, her, father john introduced her to guns when she was 8 years old, she lived in Croatia in the countryside and one day her father invited her into the woods where you can see the greenery and giant trees that will make your eyes glued to their nature and the relaxing sound of the wind interring your ears and touching your face gently, they continued walking throughout the woods and tell they reached the practice area, where there was a table and directly right in front of it there is a thick tree it was as thick and tall as the tower of Pisa, her father drew a big circle with in the circle there were smaller circles just like a Dartboard, it was right in the tree with a yellowish paint. Her father hand her the gun and told Sophia “guns don’t kill humans but humans kill humans by using guns” he said that, so she doesn’t be afraid of guns. Sophia responded with “that’s why I see a lot of people have guns, so they can feel powerful” her father was astonished at how true Sophia’s answer was. Since then, she went to college and graduated with firearms degree she started a shop at age 23 where most of her sells went to rare laser guns. But at this era they called it a Gaser. It used to be rare at the time but now a day at 2050 you can find them everywhere. Ospher he’s 32 years old white, black heard, bearded and tall about 187 cm and got brown eyes, and he’s also an owner of a weed shop that located in Canada, but he doesn’t consume weed for the sack of his health. Since he was a kid to be exact 10 years old he liked to risk a bit which drove his mother Emily crazy owing to that every time he comes back home he brings problems with him, for instance a severe bruise that will need days to heal and one of the worst week is when he broke his fingers in a daily bases he says it’s the causes of him being an addicted kid to climbing mountains or anything he could climb, but after high school he stopped doing climbing all in one he liked the gym more and martial arts because it’s there where all his stress gets striped from him, and he started his shop roughly the same age as Sophia. But when Sophia started hers it was expected but in the other hand Ospher’s shop was out of the blue with no reasons.Ospher and Sophia met each other in a vacation trip specifically at Hawaii they were in the same tourist boat which lead them to meet each other. They talked about their business and small conversation, after 3 days of being together they become more open to each other, their guards were fully down, at the evening they were at the ocean where wind blows gently into your face and the relaxing sound of the wave hitting your ears, Ospher started the conversation with being the confident man he is, by making fun of Sophia’s height by picking her up with his sandy hand and telling her how short she was but at the same time the only thing he was thinking about is how much he wanted Sophia to be his, whale picking her up he asked her “Sophia do you want to go on a date” unexpectedly, she answered with a “yes” she was as red as a tomato too shy to see him she looked everywhere but his face, Ospher was filled with happiness, he let her down and said “alright then when both of as are free we have a date” Sophia being the shy women she is she only nodded her head and both exchanged their personal numbers. It took them a week to meet up again because of how busy both of them where, the date was in valentine day what, a coincidence you say I say it was planned already, before two days of valentine the only one who was busy was the man, they only Ospher, he said “the date is going to go nicely” whale laughing I don’t know how Sophia could agree to date him anyway both of them arrived at there destination which was located at Croatia in Sophia’s home country. Ospher planned to go to Dubrovnik which is a famous tourist destination when Oshper gifted the shy woman a Fabelle chocolates box which made here excited and happy at the same time. Trust me if he didn’t plan it he would’ve forgotten that its valentine nevertheless when Ospher told Sophia the date plane she declines and said “no come to the countryside where I will give you a tour” he excepted it with no hesitation also with excitement by saying “let’s go to a nice journey ma’am” the date goes on by laughter and eating initially having the most fun talking to each other and knowing each other’s more and more telling story about each other it was a nice first date. After months of dating, Sophia moved to Canada to live with Ospher, at her arrival she was shocked to discover that he had white, furry, black spotted husky in his house, Ospher welcomed her to his house and showed her the room they were staying in. The room was big enough to fit two trucks. She was surprised that he lived in here Alone she asked curiously “why do you need such space” Ospher: “I didn’t need them before I meet you, I bought the house a month ago” Sophia blushingly said “thank you… for everything” Ospher just hugged the shyness out of her. The next morning Sophia and Ospher worked their butt off all day to move Sophia’s stuff and some stuff that Ospher forget at his old apartment. After they settled up at their new house which toke them a year, they started doing couple things for example chill and Netflix and vr video games all the fun stuff but with fun stuff comes fighting, every time they fight Sophia wins and Ospher gets to sleep outside the house in the backyard but every time she does that in the morning he gets welcomed with a great breakfast and a great apology from Sophia it was like that for the past 2 years, and at the time Ospher was eating the great breakfast he suddenly said “let’s go get a fancy breakfast” whale finishing the breakfast that was made by Sophia. Sophia: “you always come out of nowhere, okay let's go” they get ready as fast as humanely possible. They arrived to the restaurant with welcoming fragrant it smelled like entering a jewelry shop and the food variation was unchoosable when the food arrived it was a piece of art you will be able to feel the saliva building up in your mouth, before they finished their dishes Ospher bend on one knee, and with his to two hands there is a black furry box, inside that furry thing there’s a shining diamond ring and Ospher said in front of everyone “will you marry me” she was so shocked and excited and happy at the same time that she jumped out of here chair and said out loud “of course I will marry you” the people surrounding them stood up, out of excitement but gently and clapped to them happily. After that day they got married in Hawaii where they first met it was an amazing sunny day the sun heat warms you up perfectly and the sand making you convertible at your place and the blue horizon of the ocean that brings a wave of the wind giving you that fresh air. After we were done with the merge we went on a honeymoon and in that honeymoon we wanted a baby. After the honeymoon was over, they discovered that Sophia was pregnant they were extremely happy. After all, the only thing that will make them even happier is a baby of our own. They have been suffering all of 9 months from both sides mostly Sophia. The Labor Day came, Ospher was frightened his body was shaking moving by its own in front of the Labor operation door, it was all for Sophia and what his about to experience, he entered the Labor room to help his wife Sophia when he entered the room, the first thing he did was kissing the floor his brain couldn’t comprehend what is going in the Labor room that it gave up on him by shutting down. At the time Ospher looked at his wife with a foggy eye he saw his wife holding a coat with a huge smile. After he fully woken up he sees the hospital crush in two bits right in front of him, it looked like the guns that Sophia used to describe to Ospher, it was split in a half by one of those huge laser machine and slowly crumbled. His wife Sophia was beside him, looked very tired, and his newborn baby was crying he went in to hold that small thing he held it as gently as he can, Ospher held it close to his face and slowly bummed it to his cheeks but that doesn’t change that there still hiding on the backdoor of a tower and then Ospher needed to act quick he didn’t know anything that’s happening but the fact that we are hiding doesn’t seem right he tried to wake his wife up, but he couldn’t, and so he checked if Sophia was injured or not, He saw it “they didn’t close he..r stomach fu..lly wh..at” he couldn’t see anything since his eyes were full of water he couldn’t contain himself but cry, she was infected severely that here organs gave up. Ospher picked his wife up despite how heavy she where and his new-born baby that is crying in the background when Ospher walked in to an abnormally empty walkway he saw a grass from a park that was directly at the left of them he was planning to go there, but he heard someone walking but not normally it’s like he’s holding a bug full of scrap metal to his surprise it wasn’t a human it was an Ai robot he was holding a gaser the minute he saw the gaser he hides behind the wall and comes down the baby, so he can’t hear them, after 5 minutes he peeked to see if the Ai went far enough, it’s needed since he wanted to steal the car it was easy to find one, since there were car with open doors he took the chance but didn’t notice the Ai that was right beside the tower he aimed right at Ospher’s neck where he was holding Sophia. The Ai shot Sophia right at the back which made hole in Sophia’s back but protected Ospher from the laser hitting his neck and dying but Ospher was furious at this point. He puts his family inside the car gently but quickly since the gaser needed time to recool that gave him enough time to do everything he needed to. he turns on the car that was Mazda CX-5 2036 Ospher goes full speed at that Ai that lasered his wife and crushes him, he did it twice just to make sure he was in bits, he checked on the baby that was in the backseat with his mom, it was sleeping on top of her dead mom that was also bleeding slowly from the back. Ospher went to the graveyard where all his loved one were died, he digs for three hours none stop the baby was hungry, but he continued digging and tell it was enough he washed his wife whale crying, and he netted her hole that he found at her back and the netting box he’s using was in the empty reception, he used it to stop her bleeding, turns out he did a better job than the doctors, and put his wife in the hole as gently as possible after that he returned all the sand right back in, and found a rock and wrote in the rock Sophia john 2009-2038, after that Ospher went to his house where everything was ready for the baby, he feeds the baby and changed her dipper so the baby will be cleaned of curse by the shower and also the stuff that Sophia bought, but out of nowhere he founds something it was the baby’s id inside her clothes since everything is system nowadays Sophia could choice the name right on the spot. Ospher: “Samantha” he takes the id and put it in his safer where it’s going to be safe. Ospher put Samantha to sleep, but he changed the place of the cradle of the baby, it used to be placed on a room where she will be alone but now she is right beside Oshper’s bed so nothing bad happens to Samantha whale his sleeping.

2020.10.02 18:30 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 4 - Philadelphia Eagles(0-2-1) at San Francisco 49ers (2-1)

Philadelphia Eagles (0-2-1) at San Francisco 49ers (2-1)
The Eagles are off to their worst start since 1999 when Eagles coach Doug Pederson was the starting QB for the Eagles in Andy Reid’s first season; where the Eagles started 0-3 and finished 5-11. The Eagles look to be on a similar trajectory this season with their 0-2-1 start following an embarrassing tie to the Bengals last week. The Eagles have the toughest remaining schedule in the NFL this season and the Eagles look like a bad football team. There really isn’t any other description of this team. They are bad on every level and it starts from the top. The team has played undisciplined and the offensive and defensive play-calling has been atrocious and has lacked identity. It seems like the game-planning this season has been phoned in with the coaches running the same vanilla offense and defense week in and week out and expecting the players to win it for them which they haven’t. Carson Wentz has regressed to the point he is unrecognizable and is making mistakes from his rookie season. His coaches don’t seem interested in helping him with fix those mistakes either as Doug Pederson and Press Taylor have failed to recognize Carson’s breakdowns in his mechanics. Their gameplans have done him no favors either utilizing a large number of 5 and 7 step drops despite having a multitude of injuries on the offensive line and at the wide receiver position. If the Eagles have any hope of salvaging their season they will need to pull out a win on Sunday night football against the 49ers and their strong defense. The 49ers are dealing with some injuries of their own with Bosa and Sherman on the IR on the defensive side and Jimmy G and Mosert most likely missing the game on offense. The San Fran defense is still tough with an impressive defensive line and speed all over the field. If Doug cares about Carson at all he will move the pocket and rely on Miles Sanders on the ground to keep the pass rush honest. On the defensive side, Schwartz will need to continue to mix it up with blitzes like he did against the Bengals, but he will need to pull his out of his ass in the secondary and learn that his CBs should not be playing 8-10 yards off the ball when playing man coverage. If Schwartz does a lot of the same in the secondary it could be a long day because Shanahan’s offense will exploit it and lead to another Eagles loss, this time in Prime Time. The Eagles will need to figure out how to get a win this week, or this streak of 3 straight playoff appearances will come to an end. Go Birds!

The Eagles looked to win their 6th game in a row against the winless San Francisco 49ers. The Eagles got off to a slow start, only leading 3–0 after the first quarter. Late in the second quarter, the Eagles blew the game open. Carson Wentz found tight end Zach Ertz for a 1-yard touchdown in the back of the end zone off of a bootleg pass, and Jalen Mills intercepted rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown. The 49ers appeared to have some life in the third quarter, following a Carson Wentz interception, leading to a Matt Breida 22 yard touchdown reception. However, the Eagles responded, with Wentz connecting with Alshon Jeffery for a 53-yard touchdown, putting the game out of reach. The Eagles went on to win 33–10 and advanced to 7–1 on the season. Despite the win, the Eagles played a sloppy game on a rainy afternoon in Philadelphia.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - The Eagles welcomed the Cincinnati Bengals to Lincoln Financial Field seeking their first win over Cincinnati since 2000. After a scoreless first quarter, the two teams traded field goals in the second, before the Bengals took a 10-6 lead on a touchdown reception by Tee Higgins. Wentz responded on the ensuing drive, as he threw his 100th career touchdown pass to Greg Ward to put the Eagles in front 13-10 at halftime. After the Eagles added another Jake Elliott field goal, the Bengals reclaimed a one-point lead with Higgins' second touchdown of the afternoon. Cincinnati would pad its lead to seven points with two fourth-quarter field goals. Trailing 23-16 with just over 3 minutes left in regulation, Philadelphia drove down the field to score the game-tying touchdown on a 7-yard run for Wentz. In overtime, both defenses held strong, with neither team being able to get into field goal range until the final drive, when the Eagles got to the Bengals' 41. However, a costly false start on Matt Pryor brought Philadelphia out of field goal range. The Eagles punted the ball, and the game ended on the following play with the Bengals at their own 20. Despite his milestone, Wentz's struggles continued as he also threw two interceptions for the third straight game and finished the game with a 62.8 passer rating. Philadelphia improved to 0-2-1 with the tie, but failed to snap their winless streak against Cincinnati and fell to 0-3-2 in their last five against the Bengals, including an 0-2-1 mark at Lincoln Financial Field. This marked the Eagles' first tie since 2008, which was also against the Bengals.
49ers - The way the San Francisco 49ers played, missing quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and a slew of starters wasn't an issue against the woeful and winless New York Giants, who were also missing their best player in Saquan Barkley. 49ers backup Nick Mullens threw for 343 yards and a touchdown and the Niners controlled the ball on offense, took it away on defense and had another easy day on the East Coast in a 36-9 win at MetLife Stadium Sunday. San Francisco scored on seven of its first eight possessions. It would have been all eight but a snap-hold problem led to Gould missing a 55-yarder. He connected from 52, 32 and 26 yards. The Niners' ninth possession ended the game.

Stats to Know
Receiving RBs
What if I told you the Niners have two of the league’s best receiving Running Backs? (Yes, one is hurt). What if I also told you the Eagles’ defenders are presently poop covering RBs against the pass? That about sums it up. Mr. McKinnon should have a fun day.
Matchups to Watch
Carson Wentz
This is the only real battle that matters since it's extremely difficult to win in the NFL with poor QB play. Wentz is among the worst QBs in the league to start the season and it could be a significant amount of time before he changes course. Even the most stalwart Wentz supporters must admit he is also a problem with this team right now. With that said, in order to win this game, and any game moving forward, the Eagles need Carson Wentz to improve. Philly can't use the injury excuse in this particular matchup as the Niners are one of the only teams to be in a similar or worse injury predicament than the Eagles. Even with the injuries, the Niners are able to show up and show out on a weekly basis... They are a great team. Wentz has had issues in all areas pertaining to play. He needs to be more precise, smarter, and more relaxed. This team sucks; it's likely no amount of heroism if going to pull this team from the depths of the league this season. The only thing Carson Wentz can do is his job. He's not responsible for coaching blunders, other injuries, or a GM that can't get anything right. Just get better and when he does, this team can actually be competitive.
Kyle Shanahan and his offensive genius vs Jim Schwartz and the LBs and Safeties
It should be no surprise the Eagles LBs and Safeties struggle in coverage as they did nothing in the offseason to add players that can cover. Plain and simple. This is a defense with a great defensive line, a great CB1, and that's it. They struggle to play consistent run defense now with the mediocre talent in the second and third levels. Kyle Shanahan is one of the most innovative offensive minds in the NFL; if you thought the thumping Sean McVay gave us was painful, wait until we see what's in store from the guy who mentored McVay. Shanahan lives for finding your weakest links in the LB and Safety rooms and exploiting that deficiency mercilessly. Nate Gerry is about to have his worst game ever - and that says something. George Kittle should return for this contest which is a tremendous mismatch that the Niners will exploit. Even the best cover guys in the league struggle against Kittle as he's just a monster. Shanahan will use all kinds of motion, misdirection, and play action that will cause this defense to struggle mightily absent some sort of miracle where they learn to play. I have faith that the defensive line can play well, but as we saw in week 2, all the motion, misdirection, and play action teams use can neutralize a pass rush. Lastly, can Schwartz even put his guys in better positions? Yeah, probably not.
Doug Pederson’s Offensive Game Plan vs the Niners Defense
I tried to have a more nuanced look at this matchup but it is difficult. The Eagles offense is marred by underachieving talent and injuries to start the season. Furthermore, they weren't given enough to work with by the front office but that is an entirely different discussion. Point blank: the offensive coaching staff, led by Doug Pederson, has struggled to consistently put its players in successful situations to start the season. It's not all Doug's fault but a large part of it is. There wasn't a real identity to this offense to start and that's only gotten worse 4 weeks in. This roster isn't going to suddenly improve overnight, if at all this season, so it's up to the coaching staff to help the offense succeed. There are a lot of new cooks involved in creating the offensive game plan but not enough overall direction from the man in charge. The Niners defense has plenty of injuries to key players as well; can they design a function offense built on spare parts to put up a fight? Or will they punt?

2020.09.30 18:07 mccanntech Wi-Fi 101: Origins and History

Wi-Fi as we know it today is a series of standards, voted on by a worldwide engineering body, the IEEE. The IEEE is an open membership organization with more than 423,000 engineers in 160 countries. It took years of work and dozens of proposals to form the original Wi-Fi standard in 1997. It took even more effort over the last 23 years to get to where we are now.
The story of the invention of Wi-Fi depends on who you ask. There is a complicated history leading up to that original 1997 standard, and the truth is hard to decipher. I'm not capable of litigating who invented what, but there are some key players to know about. Where possible, I will point out the people and the organizations behind the technology.

Wired and Wireless Precursors: Say ALOHA to Wireless Networking

In 1968, researchers at the University of Hawaii began to investigate if radio waves could be used for communication between computers. The project was led by professor Norman Abramson, Dr. Franklin Kuo, and a team of faculty and students. It would go on to become known as ALOHAnet.
During this time, wired computer networking was in its infancy, and evolving rapidly. Packet switching was conceived of by Paul Baran in 1964, and first demonstrated by Donald Davies in August 1968. In October 1969, the first ARPANET link was established between UCLA and the Stanford. By June 1971, ALOHAnet was the world's first wireless packet switched data network.(1)
During the development of ALOHAnet, Abramson and his team had to solve many foundational issues with wireless networking, including collisions and failed transmissions. They decided that a random access protocol would be the best way to accomplish this. The ALOHA protocol allowed terminals to send data whenever they had it, and listen to their transmissions to make sure they were received, and acknowledged. If a transmission failed, terminals would resend after a random delay. This was simple and effective, but had problems scaling up to more users. The ALOHA protocol was improved and expanded, and was the inspiration for CSMA/CA.
ALOHAnet was a pioneering technological marvel, but it was experimental and not fit for commercial use. Most critically, unlicensed spectrum for computer communications was not available to the public yet. Since the University of Hawaii didn't have a way to sell the technology, it was put into the public domain. ALOHAnet was decommissioned in 1976, but it inspired others to continue what it started. Most notably, Robert "Bob" Metcalfe studied it for his PhD dissertation.
Through the 1970s, many wired local area network technologies were developed. Some were proprietary, and some were open standards. Most of this early work has gone on to become ANSI or IEEE standards, and formed the basis of the computer communication and the Internet. A standards-based approach wasn't destiny, and we all benefit from the pioneers who pushed for standards over proprietary solutions. All of this groundbreaking work on wired standards helped lay the foundation for wireless.

Key Dates In Wired Networking History

The Wright Brothers of Wi-Fi

By 1985, all the pieces were in place for the development of a universal wireless networking standard. These were the Wild West days of wireless networking. Dozens of companies were competing to be the first to produce a successful product. Many companies came and went, so I'm only going to focus on the biggest and most important ones.

NCR and WaveLAN

In the 1980s, NCR Corporation was a big international company selling computers, ATMs, and cash registers. They wanted to develop a way to have their cash registers work wirelessly. This would give them a competitive advantage, and allow retail stores to avoid the costs and logistics of running cabling to every register. At the same time, cash registers were becoming more computer-like, so NCR sought to develop an International wireless standard that any computer could use. Two of the key engineers assigned to this project were Cees Links and Vic Hayes. Through 1986 and 1987, Vic and the other engineers at NCR developed a product which became known as WaveLAN.
NCR introduced WaveLAN to the world in 1990.(2) While WaveLAN was intended for use in cash registers, it was also positioned as a wireless alternative to Ethernet and Token Ring for PCs. In the 1990s, wireless products were expensive, and hard to use. The early drivers were buggy, and documentation was hard to find. WaveLAN network adapters cost hundreds of dollars, and access points could cost thousands. The high cost and limited usability kept WaveLAN as a niche product, mainly found in the big businesses that could afford them.
WaveLAN operated at 900MHz or 2.4 GHz, and offered speeds of 1 to 2 Mbps. It competed with Aironet's ARLAN and others which offered similar speeds, frequency ranges and hardware. Several companies also marketed wireless bridges and routers based on WaveLAN technology. Wireless networking products became a mess of competing companies and different implementations. The need for an International standard was clear.
NCR wanted to have Vic Hayes make the technical proposals to the IEEE on the companies behalf. Vic disagreed, and fought to stay independent and not do any of the proposals on behalf of NCR. The company agreed, and this actually worked to their benefit. Since Vic wasn't pushing NCR's proprietary solution, he gained the trust of others. Vic ended up becoming the first chairman of the IEEE 802.11 working group, giving him the nickname “Father of Wi-Fi"

IEEE and the 802.11 working group

In 1988, Vic Hayes approached the IEEE to contribute to the 802.4L, an existing committee creating a wireless standard based on Token Ring. As it turned out, that committee had become inactive, and the chairman had quit. This let to Vic becoming the chairman of 802.4L, and the forming of a new working group, 802.11. Ethernet and WaveLAN technology formed part of the technical base of the 802.11 committee, which was officially started in 1990.
WaveLAN and the knowledge of Vic Hayes' group at NCR helped form the basis, but countless others contributed as well. Many other companies submitted proposals for various aspects of the standard, and the group compromised and voted on the best ideas along the way. Most of their documents are still publicly available. The 802.11 group continued to work throughout the 1990s to develop the standard, which was a long and complicated process. It took 7 years and input from countless engineers to form the first Wi-Fi standard, known as 802.11-1997.
The first Wi-Fi standard was in some ways a messy compromise. It allowed for transmissions over Infrared or 2.4 GHz radio waves. It also allowed for two different frequency selection methods, which prevented guaranteed compatibility. In the end, both Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) and Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) were added to the standard. The group allowed these options as a way to please the entities involved in the creation, but it made the standard weak.
802.11-1997 never gained much traction. Despite that, the group got to work on its next set of standards, 802.11a and 802.11b, which were developed in parallel. The main difference between them was the frequencies and the modulation schemes they used.
802.11b hit the market first. Despite the slower speeds, people preferred the availability, lower cost, and longer range of the 2.4 GHz equipment. The success of 802.11b snowballed into the development of 802.11g, and made 2.4 GHz the defacto International wireless spectrum range for years to come.
In the late 1990s, Wi-Fi's success wasn't guaranteed. Early Wi-Fi devices were expensive, slow, and often incompatible with other devices. According to Vic Hayes, he approached many computers makers to persuade them to add Wi-Fi to their computers, but most of them said no. Steve Jobs and Apple wanted to add Wi-Fi to an upcoming laptop, but they wanted it to cost $100, not $500. They argued that the lower cost would make it more marketable to consumers.
Apple eventually got the $100 Wi-Fi card they wanted. The iBook and AirPort launched on July 21, 1999, a few months before the 802.11a and 802.11b standard were finalized. It was the first mainstream computer designed and sold with integrated wireless networking.

OFDM, CSIRO, and Dr. John O'Sullivan

This is where our story get murky. CSIRO is the Australian federal agency with a long history of scientific research. They have developed many advanced technologies, such as atomic absorption spectroscopy. According to CSIRO, Wi-Fi is an Australian invention. The truth isn't that simple, and it isn't that clear.
CSIRO's key insight came out of their work in radioastronomy. In 1977, CSIRO researcher Dr. John O'sullivan was searching for small exploding black holes. He wrote a paper about how fast Fourier transformations could be used to sharpen images from optical telescopes. As the waves traveled towards the telescope they became scrambled, and CSIRO developed a custom processor to use fast Fourier transformations to unscramble the image. While this technique didn't help him discover the black holes he was looking for, it helped to solve a different problem.
Starting in 1990, John O'Sullivan led a team of CSIRO scientists to develop a high-speed wireless network. Their goal was 100 Mbps, to compete with the best wired networks of the time. This caused them to look past the techniques used by ALOHAnet and WaveLAN, because they wouldn't be fast enough. One technical challenge they faced was how radio waves tend to bounce off surfaces indoors, causing an echo that distorts the signal. Using fast Fourier transformations, they found a way to transmit a signal while reducing that echo. Rather than using one fast wireless channel, they used lots of slower channels. This is known as multicarrier modulation.
Single-carrier modulation systems exploit only one signal frequency to transmit data. Multi-carrier modulation systems divide the whole frequency channel into subcarriers, and the data stream is divided into many low-rate streams transmitted in parallel. Single-carrier modulation has advantages, but multi-carrier modulation is better suited for high-bandwidth, short-range communication like Wi-Fi. In modern Wi-Fi standards, we use multi-carrier modulation in the form of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing, or OFDM.
According to their lawyer in a 2009 patent dispute, CSIRO did not invent Wi-Fi, but it did invent the best way of doing it. CSIRO scientists tested hundreds of techniques until it found a unique combination that worked at high speeds. That combination involved multi-carrier modulation, forward error-correcting, and frequency interleaving to send multiple copies of the data. This specific combination of techniques is the secret sauce the CSIRO applied for a patent for in 1992, and was granted in 1996.
CSIRO didn't invent the underlying techniques, since they were already known. Frequency division multiplexing dates back to the late 1870s, when telegraph companies were trying to increase their capacity. Multi-carrier modulation was described in the 1950s. OFDM is attributed to Bell Labs employee Robert W. Chang back in 1966. Interleaving also dates back to the 1960s. Forward error correction was used when NASA sent the Mariner mission to Mars in 1968.
CSIRO also wasn't the first to combine these techniques and apply them to computer communication. Harris Semiconductor sold modems to the US military using these techniques in the 1980s. Critically, the Harris modem was never patented since interleaving, modulation, and coding had been around for decades by the time Harris came along. According to testimony, Intel official Stephen Saltzman said that outside CSIRO, engineers didn't take the idea of a Wi-Fi patent using these techniques seriously. Experts at Intel had already shipped products based on OFDM with previous employers, and thought that a new patent with OFDM didn't seem credible. Regardless of the merits and the origin of the ideas, US patent #5,487,069 was granted in 1996.
During the development of the 802.11a standard, CSIRO made the IEEE aware of its patent and offered to license it. Beyond that offer, CSIRO never got involved in the creation of the 802.11 standards. Dozens of companies made proposals to the various 802.11 committees, offering to submit their ideas or license their patents. CSIRO never submitted a proposal for the original 1997 standard, or any of the revisions. Despite their lack of involvement in the process and lack of licensing agreement, 802.11a, 802.11g, and later IEEE standards would go on to use OFDM and multi-carrier modulation.
Years later, CSIRO used this as the basis for lawsuits against major networking and technology companies. CSIRO won settlements worth $205 million in 2009, and another $229 million in 2012. If you want more detail on the CSIRO patent fight, Joe Mullin wrote a good piece for ArsTechnica back in 2012. Mark Summerfield wrote a counter-point to Joe's article for Patentology, looking at what the CSIRO patent did and didn't cover.
The truth is a messy thing. In Wi-Fi's case, success truly did have many fathers.

802.11 Timeline

Footnotes:

1 - ALOHAnet used 100 KHz channels, operating at 9600 baud on the 407 and 413 MHz UHF frequencies. It originally connected seven computers across four islands, which communicated wirelessly with a central computer in a star network topology.
2 - AT&T would go on to buy NCR in 1991, only to spin off the remnants of the division as NCR and Lucent by 1996.

2020.09.26 18:07 NBANFL6 {OC] How Greg Zuerlein Bamboozled the Falcons + What would happen if the Falcons went onside every time and more!

Last week, I made a post about onside kick master Younghoe Koo besting the Seahawks. I really appreciated the support and decided to make a part 2 to discuss how Greg Zuerlein’s helicopter onside kick bamboozled the Falcons (and the real reason why they didn’t just hop on the ball) + what would happen if the Falcons tried an onside kick every time and more!
Let’s go back to Sunday, 1:49 left in the fourth quarter with the Cowboys down 39-37. Their main obstacle to pulling off this miracle comeback: an onside kick attempt vs. the team that seemingly patented them. Just like last week, this non-surprise onside kick must have two elements to succeed:
1). The ball must be slow enough or spend enough time on the ground for your team to travel the minimum required 10 yards to receive the kick. On this play it was a ridiculous ~3.6 seconds
2). The ball must pop up into the air or scuttle along the ground in such a way that your teammate can make a play on the ball 10-11 yards downfield.
Part 1: Pre-Kick
Part 2: The Kick
Part 3: The First 5 Yards
Part 4: An Unexpected Turn
Part 5: Recovery Cowboys
Part 6: A bit more context
Finally, for people who still want to imagine this was an easy decision, I recorded a video kicking an onside kick similar. While my kick doesn’t curve anywhere as much as Zuerlein (I am not in the NFL and am doing this in high grass instead of turf which makes it much harder) I think it might help give a new perspective (video is also slowed down for the ball speed to be the same).
Here is the kick from what I tried to emulate as Hurst’s perspective (Starting from the ball being 5 yards downfield)
TLDR: Greg Zuerlein’s “Helicopter” onside kick confused the Falcons recovery team into thinking the ball was going out of bounds. A last second curve that only players who have seen the kick before could expect allows for a recovery.
If you prefer to watch this in video form here it is - some people asked last time what the source was and this is the longer version of a script I used for that video! If you do happen to watch I really appreciate the support!
Frequently Asked Questions from this week:
  1. On my last post the #1 comment by far was a question - what if the Falcons let Younghoe Koo try an onside kick every time?
  1. Earlier this week, a post on reddit vent viral suggesting Harrison Butker’s game winning kick was aided by an illegal tee or ball marker

2020.09.25 18:50 Lvondas A Beginner’s Guide to At Vance – Neo-Classical Power Metal / Hard Rock

What kind of music do At Vance Play?

 
The band play an eclectic blend of late 90s Neo-Classical Power Metal and Melodic Hard Rock in the style of Deep Purple/Rainbow.
At Vance specialise in fast Power Metal songs, catchy Melodic Hard Rock songs and dark and depressing Ballads. They are also known for some unusual cover songs of both Pop Music and Classical Music.
 

What are their best songs?

 
Here are 20 of my favourites:
 
  1. Fast Power Metal Songs: Dragonchaser, Witches Dance, Heroes of Honor, Street of My Dreams
  2. Melodic Hard Rock Songs: Die In Your Arms, Only Human, Broken Vow, Princess of Ice, Heaven, Run / Leave, Farewell, Facing Your Enemy

  4. Pop Covers: Eye of the Tiger, The Winner Takes it All
  5. Classical Covers: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons: Summer, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony 1st Movement.

01 1999 No Escape – 8/10

 
Track Score Review
01 Flying High Good A fast paced song. Excellent pre-chorus with high note from Oliver Hartman. Very classical sounding melody. Lyrics seem to be about rejecting the preachers of bad religion. However, the chorus is a little too simple compared to more elaborate verse. Good solo.
02 No escape Good A fast paced 3 minute firecracker. It is basically a sequel to the previous song, anti-religion theme continued, and similarly the chorus seems a little simple compared to the elegant verse section. The main riff is a fantastic chugger that Gus G of Firewind could have written, but in the less heavy tuning of E standard instead of Drop D. Excellent solo.
03 No Speak Good A fun little instrumental with both technique and memorability.
04 Die in Your Arms Great Oliver Hartman’s vocals really elevate this mid-paced stomper to greatness. He hits some unbelievable notes. The main riff is great, and has a Phantom of the Opera-esque run of chromatic power chords. Lyrics seem to be a break-up with a stone cold ice queen, who doesn’t respond to passion.
05 All For One, One for All Great Probably my favourite song on the album. The intro is played on a church organ, and sets the tone for a true Power Metal hymn. I love the main riff and the solo, but it’s the harmonies in the chorus that make the song truly special.
06 Money, Money, Money (ABBA cover) Good A really great cover of the ABBA classic. Hartmann hits some really high notes.
07 Four Seasons – Summer (Vivaldi cover) Good Another really great cover, this time of the “summer” section of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Olaf Lenk’s guitar playing is phenomenal here.
08 Lost in Your Love Average This is a good love ballad and the verse melody is memorable. However, the ballad is too out of place with the rest of the album, and is not as good as the band’s later ballads.
09 Power & Glory Great This is a sort of sequel to track 5, and is a fantastic inspiring Power Metal hymn about believing in hope.
10 Seven Seas Average A mysterious traditional heavy metal song about travelling the world and soul searching. The chorus is unusual for this band, and they didn’t do many more songs like these.
11 Bonus 1 Eye of the Tiger (Survivor cover) Great One of the best cover’s I’ve ever heard. Fits well with the album.
12 Bonus 2 Shout (Tears for Fears cover) Good Another excellent cover, but doesn’t really fit in with the album very well.
 
Production: Average.
 
Olaf Lenk did the mixing himself and the result is a very clean sound, but rather too clinical and digital sounding for the music itself. The production robs the performance of a bit of energy. Olaf Lenk makes the unusual choice to keep his guitar in E standard, when his rival bands almost all prefer the heavier tuning of E flat. This gives his guitar tone a slightly Thrashy sound, but unlike Thrash the sound is clean and digital (it’s certainly not a Tube amp that he’s using) and more like a Hard Rock band’s sound.
 
Performance:Good
 
Great singing from Oliver Hartmann and great guitar playing from Olaf Lenk. The keyboards of Uli Müller are subtle, but I particularly like his church organ tone. Rainald König bass is mostly inaudible thanks to the mix, but the bass part in the Vivaldi cover shows some very impressive playing ability.
 
Flow:Average
 
The album has excellent variety, but the flow between tracks feels rather random. The first 3 tracks could have been the start of an anti-religion concept album or something, but the rest of the songs don’t make much sense as a group.
 
Lyrics:
 
Subject matter includes anti-religion, heartbreak, love, and self-belief.
Conclusion
 
This is a strong debut with excellent songwriting, guitar playing and vocals. The high variety of songs makes for an exciting listen. How many albums have Metal versions of Vivaldi and ABBA songs back to back? It is let down slightly by the rather sterile production sound, and a lack of any unifying theme to the album as a whole. This is a good place to start listening to At Vance, although if you want them at their absolute best I would recommend The Evil in You, or Only Human instead.
 

02 2000 Heart of Steel – 8/10

Track Score Review
01 Prelude n/a Nice acoustic guitar intro to the next song, although somewhat redundant since the next track has an intro of it’s own.
02 Soldier of Time Good A memorable fast paced opener in the elegant classical style of Flying High from the first album. The main riff has a unique folky feel that At Vance would use again in many more songs.
03 The Brave and the Strong Great A Power Metal hymn with church organ intro and inspiring lyrics. I’m a sucker for these kind of songs. It’s basically a sequel to All For One, One For All from the previous album, but I don’t mind.
04 Heart of Steel Good An almost Manowar-style mid paced stomper. A memorable riff. The lyrics are uplifting again.
05 S.O.S. (ABBA cover) Good Fantastic cover of ABBA’s S.O.S. This band really has a gift for cover songs.
06 King of Your Dreams Good A high-speed Power Metal song with a technical main riff, inspiring chorus, and blazing guitar solo.
07 Princess of the Night Good A neo-classical ballad in the vein of Malmsteen classics like Prisoner of Your Love and Save Your Love. The chord progression is similar to Air on a G string by Bach. It’s nice while it’s on, but better songs in this depressing dirge-like style would later become a speciality of At Vance.
08 Goodbye Good Briskly-paced song with a catchy rhythm in the main riff and chorus.
09 Why Do You Cry? Good A stomping track of heartbreak in the vein of Die in Your Arms from the previous album. Not as great as that song, but still a strong song with a catchy chorus and very tight rhythm guitar parts.
10 Don’t You Believe a Stranger Good An Iron Maiden-esque galloping rhythm brings a strong finish to the album. The lyrics seem to be about staying safe and not talking to strangers. Perhaps this was written with children in mind?
11 Etude No.4 (Chopin cover) Good Impressive Chopin cover.
12 Bonus 1 Logical Song (Supertramp cover) Good Very good cover of Supertramp’s Logical Song.
 
Production: Good
 
An improvement on the previous album, but still a little digital sounding.
 
Performance: Good
 
The addition of a real drummer in Jürgen "Sledgehammer" Lucas is a welcome addition. Olaf and Hartmann are on par.
 
Flow: Good
 
The first half of the album has mostly inspiring Power Metal songs with a positive message, while the second half consists of more Hard Rock type songs with heartbreak lyrics. This is an improvement on the structure of the previous album which didn’t seem to have much logic to the song groupings.
 
Lyrics
 
Seems to be solid split between Power Metal lyrics and Hard Rock lyrics.
 
Conclusion
 
A strong album that serves as an improved sequel to “No Escape”. The production is better, and the album’s two halves have good flow. The first half is nearly all Power Metal with positive lyrics, and the second, slightly weaker half, lets their more Hard Rock side shine. It is hard to say if this is a better album than the debut overall. Several songs sound like direct sequels to songs on “No Escape”, and there are fewer real standouts. But the better flow and consistency of the album, means that I can’t write Heart of Steel off as a sophomore slump either.
 

03 2001 Dragonchaser – 9/10

Track Score Review
01 Dragonchaser Great Jaw dropping Neo-Classical shred-fest. Features a rare keyboard solo from Uli Müller. This is the only time At Vance mentions Dragons in their lyrics, but it is glorious.
02 Ages of Glory Good Very fast song about soldiers throwing their lives away for glory. The solo is blazing.
03 Crucified Good A very catchy upbeat Hard Rock Heartbreak number.
04 5th Symphony – 1st movement (Beethoven cover) Great Probably one of the most impressive Neo-Classical Metal covers ever. Also the band’s longest track ever at 8 minutes. It’s The entire first movement of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.
05 Heaven Can Wait Good An excellent ABBA-esque downbeat Hard Rock Song with a very memorable bridge section and an interesting gothic vibe to the backing choirs.
06 The Winner Takes it All (ABBA cover) Great The best ABBA cover I’ve ever heard. Glorious guitar solo. Incredible singing from Oliver Hartmann.
07 My Bleeding Heart Good An improved attempt at the soon to be signature At Vance depressing super slow ballad. Oliver Hartmann’s singing in the verse is great, but the chorus lacks a little energy. Don’t listen if you have low blood pressure.
08 Two Kings Great Upbeat Power Metal song with a great main riff, and a soaring chorus with very high vocals from Hartmann. The solo is fantastic. The rhythm is infectious. One of my favourite At Vance songs.
09 Too Late Great Very angry Power Metal song, about refusing to forgive someone. Hartmann’s vocals shatter the stratosphere. The chorus melody reminds me of a particular Christmas Carol or maybe a Church Hymn, but I can’t remember which.
10 Aase's Death (Grieg cover) Good Classical Cover of Grieg’s Aase's Death. A rather depressing piece, but well played and reminiscent of At Vance’s darker ballads.
11Bonus 1 Bandinerie (Bach cover) Good Fun little classical Cover of Bach’s Badineri.
 
Production: Average
 
A small step down from Heart of Steel, but better than No Escape. Olaf Lenk is mixing himself again, and so he is probably wearing too many hats. The sound is very clear but too clean and digital to let the heavier songs shine.
 
Performance: Great
 
This might be the best singing of Oliver Hartmann’s career. Certainly his highest notes. Olaf’s guitar work on the Beethoven cover alone should rank him near the top of Neo-Classical guitarists.
 
Flow: Good
 
The structure is more like No Escape, in that it is a seemingly random mix of Power Metal, Hard Rock, and Covers. But since the songs are so good, the flow is quite exciting. The album starts with one of its best songs, but ending the album with a depressing classical covers was a strange choice.
 
Lyrics
 
The usual mix of inspiration lyrics and hard rock heartbreak. Dragonchaser and Two Kings stand out as unusual.
 
Conclusion
 
A slightly weak production isn’t enough to stop this near masterpiece of an album. The Classical and ABBA covers reach their peak on this album, and both the Power Metal songs and the Hard Rock songs have bumped up in quality since the first two albums. Highly recommended.
 

04 2002 Only Human – 10/10

Track Score Review
01 The Time Has Come Good Angry Fast Power Metal opener, with lyrics that offer no forgiveness for tyrants. Features a rare keyboard and guitar solo duel.
02 Only Human Great One of the catchiest choruses I’ve ever heard, and an infectious fast-paced rhythm. One of At Vance’s best songs ever.
03 Take My Pain Good A dark mid-paced Hard Rock Heartbreak number with excellent rhythm.
04 Fly to the Rainbow Great Has a galloping rhythm and soaring vocals from Oliver Hartmann. The bridge and guitar solo are very powerful in this song.
05 Hold Your Fire Great A mid-paced song with a military march-esque rhythm. The medieval themed inspiring lyrics are really great.
06 Four Seasons – Spring (Vivaldi cover) Good Excellent Vivaldi cover
07 Take Me Away Great Fast paced Power Metal song about the quest for fame and glory and if it ever really ends. The bride section features a really cool lead in from Hartmann before a very memorable guitar solo.
08 Time Good A march-like song like Track 5 Hold Your Fire, with an excellent solo. The lyrics are rather depressing and seem to be about when you’ve missed your chances to make your dreams come true.
09 Solfeggietto (CPE Bach cover) Good Short but sweet Classical Cover.
10 Sing This Song Great here is no ABBA cover on this album, but Sing This Song feels like a tribute to ABBA in general. Very inspiring lyrics.
11 Witches Dance Great A memorable and creepy sampled intro leads into the best folky riff in At Vance’s discography. The chorus has a very positive feeling. Lyrics about medieval witches!
12 Wings to Fly Great A dirge-paced song with great atmosphere, and ends the album on a rather downbeat note. The solo is one of the best. This one was a grower for me, because I’m not a fan of ending a Power Metal album with a slow song.
13 Bonus 1 I Surrender (Rainbow cover) Good Excellent cover of a classic Rock song.
14 Bonus 2 Heroes of Honor Great Why is this a bonus track? This is my favourite Fast Paced Power Metal in At Vance’s whole career. It’s a beautiful song about the sacrifices of the military dead and how they are dead forever but never forgotten.
 
Production: Great
 
Olaf Lenk finally hands over the mixing board to someone else and the results are excellent. Sascha Paeth does a fantastic job and the drums and backing vocals in particular feel a lot stronger than on the previous 3 albums.
 
Performance: Great
 
Olaf, Heartmann, great as always. Jürgen Lucas’s drumming is very good.
 
Flow: Good
 
A very strong set of songs with no real weak ones, despite perhaps too many mid-paced songs in a row. Ending the album with a slow ballad is just something you have to get used to on At Vance albums.
 
Lyrics
 
A 50/50 between heartbreak Hard Rock and inspiring Power Metal. Sometimes feels strange when songs with opposing lyrics are side by side in the track list.
 
Conclusion
 
One of the best Neo-Classical Power Metal (and Hard Rock) albums ever made. An improved production and a fantastic set of songs push this one into the stratosphere.
Even with the problem that the inspiring songs and the heartbreak songs are just thematically so different, the songs are so good you won’t care. Why Heroes of Honor is only a bonus track, I cannot understand.
 

05 2003 The Evil in You – 10/10

Track Score Review
01 Fallen Angel Great Fast and angry Power Metal song with a very catchy riff.
02 Broken Bow Great An instant classic, and impossibly catchy. An infectious stomping rhythm .
03 The Evil in You Great Deliciously dark Heavy Metal number
04 Stronger Than You Think Great A great fast Power Metal song about arising stronger than ever from a tough situation and proving your doubters wrong.
05 The Curtain Will Fall Good Mid-paced stomper with a very strong verse and pre-chorus, but the chorus can’t quite match the energy.
06 One Million Miles Away Good A depressing pseudo-ballad stomper with great atmosphere.
07 Right or Wrong Great This is the “folky” Fast Power Metal song of the album, in the vein of Witches’ Dance. This is the fastest and most intense song of this type At Vance have done.
08 Shining Star Great A full on ballad with a beautiful melody. One of At Vance’s very best. Tasteful use of acoustic guitar in the intro.
09 Street of My Dreams Great Probably the fastest At Vance Power Metal song of their career. Its intensity is near Speed or Thrash Metal levels. The solo is relentless.
10 Caprice No. 16 (Paganini cover) Good Unusual for At Vance this classical cover features no other instruments than the lead guitar of Olaf Lenk. It’s a little minimalist for my taste but the musicianship is very impressive.
11 Princess of Ice Great What a way to end At Vance’s (arguably) best album. This has the catchiest chorus of the album and has a great ABBA-esque feel. A fantastic monument to Ice Queens everywhere!
12 Bonus 1 Highway Star (Deep Purple cover) Good A good cover but too similar to the original.
13 Bonus 2 Angel of the Dark Good A strong Hartmann era Power Metal track with a rather sad melody.
14 Bonus 3 You Will Never Take My Soul Good Hartmann era song in the vein as the mid-paced songs on Only Human like Hold Your Fire. It’s probably a bit too similar to those songs, but the performance is excellent.
15 Bonus 4 N.O.W. Average Interesting sample atmosphere but lacks energy.
 
Production: Great
 
Excellent production. Arguably even better than Only Human, which was already great. Very modern sounding, even in 2020.
 
Performance: Great
 
Mats Leven gives a stellar singing performance.
 
Flow: Great
 
Thanks to the unifying dark lyrical themes the album holds together well. It starts and ends with a bang.
 
Lyrics
 
Gone are the medieval themed lyrics of many of the songs of the Hartmann era, and instead we rather dark lyrics about romance gone wrong for nearly all the songs.
 
Conclusion
 
New singer Mats Leven slots in seamlessly with a slick modern production to produce probably the best album of At Vance’s career. The lyrics and music have taken a dark turn, but the result is an album that feel more consistent and cohesive than the albums from the Hartmann era. Highly recommended and a great starting point for new listeners.
 

06 2005 Chained – 8/10

Track Score Review
01 Rise From the Fall Good A strong Power Metal opener about never giving up. Solo is a little disappointing.
02 Heaven Great Unforgettable ABBA style song. One of my Top 5 At Vance songs.
03 Tell Me Good Fast Power Metal song about loosing faith. A sort of sequel to Fallen Angel on the previous album.
04 Chained Average The excellent production and singing almost save this otherwise oddly unmelodic Bluesy Heavy Metal song.
05 Now or Never Good Upbeat song about seizing the moment. At Vance has explored these ideas before but the enthusiasm and performance is great.
06 Two Hearts Average Hard Rock song with a rather unoriginal chorus, but at least the watery effect in the guitar solo is quite interesting.
07 Invention No. Thirteen (Bach cover) Average A rather lazy Classical Cover.
08 Run / Leave Great The main riff and rhythm are infectious. The slightly jazzy feel really stands out in At Vance’s discography.
09 Live for the Sacred Good A solid Hard Rock song with a strong chorus and a sneaky Mozart quotation in the solo.
10 Four Seasons – Winter (Vivaldi cover) Good Excellent rendition of the Winter section of Vivaldi’s four seasons.
11 Run for Your Life Good A rather rushed by very fun fast Power Metal number. It wastes no time.
12 Bonus 1 Who’s Foolin’ Who Great I believe it’s Olaf Lenk himself on vocals here and he does a great job here. One of the most haunting and depressing ballads I’ve ever heard. Has a really great nocturnal feel, and the excellent production sound really helps it out.
13 Bonus 2 Flight of the Bumblebee (Korsakov cover) Good Excellent and impressive cover of Flight of the Bumblebee.
14 Bonus 3 Wannabe Good Angry song about the state of the music industry and the prevalence of sell-outs and trend-followers.
 
Production: Great
 
Really excellent. Probably the cleanest in the band’s discography but lacks that extra reverb and gothic touch that made The Evil Within special.
 
Performance: Great
 
I can’t fault the performance of anyone here.
 
Flow:
 
Tracks 4 to 7 are a little hard to get through but otherwise very good flow from song to song. Ending the album with Run for Your Life makes it go out with a bang.
 
Lyrics
 
Like the Evil Within, the medieval Power Metal lyrics are nowhere, and in their place are Hard Rock relationship lyrics, but there are a few unusual ones like Live for the Sacred and Wannabe.
 
Conclusion
 
A small step down from The Evil Within, but still a very good album overall. The Hard Rock elements are really coming to the fore, and the mix and production are the cleanest and most modern sounding of the band’s career. Some of the songs feel a little rushed and barely have a bridge or solo section, but on the plus side, some of these shorter songs really waste none of the listener’s time.
 

07 2007 VII 9/10

Track Score Review
01 Breaking the Night Great Fast Power Metal song with a glorious melodic chorus with lyrics about the darkness before the dawn.
02 Shiver Good Very atmospheric and frosty mid-paced stomper.
03 Cold as Ice Good A very short Melodic Hard Rock song with a catchy chorus.
04 Victory Great A melancholy fast Power Metal song. Despite the very Power Metal song title “Victory” the lyrics are actually about a failing relationship.
05 Friendly Fire Good A depressing Hard Rock song about the soldiers who naively go to war for “God and Country” and then die.
06 Golden Leaves Good A fast Power Metal song with inspiring lyrics about not forgetting summer when the winter is coming and making sure the memory of the good times sustains you.
07 Answer Me Great Beautiful ballad with very sad atmosphere and lyrics.
08 Shine Good This is the folky Power Metal song of the album. Inspiring lyrics about holding on to the light.
09 Truth Good This is almost pure Speed Metal. Very energetic.
10 Lost in Your Love (At Vance rerecording) Average An well done and darker version of At Vance’s own Lost in Your Love, but still kind of redundant.
11 Bonus 1 Cello Prelude in G Major (Bach Cover) Good Short but sweet classical cover of Bach Cello Prelude in G Major.
12 Bonus 2 Broken Vow (live version) Good Live version of Broken Vow. Excellent song, good live version.
 
Production: Good
 
We are back to a drum machine and Olaf Lenk himself doing the mixing. While a step down from the last three albums, the production sound is surprisingly good. Very clean and has both power and clarity.
 
Performance: Good
 
Considering it’s only two musicians, it’s impressive how good the performance sounds. However, Olaf’s lead guitar playing in particular has grown a little too shred happy and perhaps lacking in imagination. Rick Altzi’s vocals are even more gravelly than Mats Leven, which makes for great darker songs, but the inspiring ones tend to sound a little world-weary. At Vance never had a less than excellent singer, and Rick Altzi is like a panther coming on stage after a tiger and a lion.
 
Flow: Good
 
A great song every 4 songs makes for excellent pacing. It’s a shame that ending the album with covers of old At Vance songs isn’t my favourite way of ending an album.
 
Lyrics
 
Probably the best lyrics of any At Vance album. At Vance albums tend not to have the most varied lyrical themes, but this album probably has the best selection of their career. Songs about soldiers, love affairs, never giving up, and even seasonal themes and even the elemental themes of ice and cold.
 
Conclusion
 
Probably the most underrated At Vance album. A summation of their entire career up to this point, with their most varied set of lyrics and songs to date. The album makes a poor choice of final song, and I believe that for some listeners, 3 singers in such a short amount of time was too much change for fans to handle.
 

08 2009 Ride the Sky 6/10

Track Score Review
01 Ride the Sky Average An up-tempo opener, that unfortunately shares its name with one of Helloween’s fastest and most classic songs. The lyrics attempt to inspire, but the song lacks energy.
02 Torn – Burning Like Fire Average The album reveals its true themes here. The themes are heartbreak, and depression. The main riff is good, but the main chorus doesn’t do much for me.
03 Last in Line Average A solid and catchy mid-paced song about defiance and standing tall, but lacks the energy to really achieve excellence.
04 Wishing Well Average The only upbeat song on the album that actually sounds happy. It’s a shame it’s a cover song and doesn’t really fit in with the album as a whole.
05 Salvation Day Good A fairly effective melodic mid-paced stomper. The main riff is the folky style of songs like Witches Dance. The lyrics seem to be about the futility of war, and possibly how good intentions and hope turn to “passion and war… violence and hate.”
06 Four Seasons – Summer 2nd Set (Vivaldi cover) Average An effective cover of the 2nd Set of Vivaldi’s Summer. There are a few too many tempo changes for me, and I prefer the 1st Set on the No Escape Album.
07 Power Dislike The song is called Power, but it doesn’t have any . The solo is very neo-classical and quite good. The chorus is a dud.
08 You and I Great Dirge-like ballads don’t get much more depressing than this! But the beautiful melody and powerful performance make this one the best At Vance have done. The guitar solo is great as well.
09 End of Days Average A Fast Power Metal song that I genuinely don’t know if it supposed to be inspiring or depressing. A very strange song with lyrics seemingly about the apocalypse and the end of days. This will be marmite for people.
10 Falling Great Just when you thought this album couldn’t get any darker, we have Falling, a genuinely haunting slow and dark song about loosing faith in maybe a woman or maybe God.
11 Farewell Great The album ends on a relatively upbeat note. And by relatively, I mean that this is still a pretty dark and depressing song. The main riff is genius, and once heard will not be forgotten. A riff worthy of Michael Romeo.
12 Bonus 1 Gloomy Monday Good Very strange and bluesy song. Unusual for this band.
 
Production: Average
 
Very digital sounding, and too much treble. Probably the worst production since Dragonchaser, but not terrible.
 
Performance: Average
 
A drum machine doesn’t help this album at all. Olaf and Rick are great musicians, but their performance lacks energy compared to the previous album.
 
Flow: Average
 
The flow is best when it sticks to the slower paced depressing songs, and not the tepid Power Metal ones. Tracks 8-11 are a very memorable set of songs that flow well.
 
Lyrics
 
The main themes are heartbreak and resilience.
 
Conclusion
 
This is probably At Vance’s most depressing album, and their worst, but has a very strong final third. The most unlikeable songs are the upbeat Power Metal songs, and the best ones are the slow depressing ones. And the whole thing is not helped by a rather weak production and robotic sounding drums. Yet it shows just how great a band this is, that even at their worst, all is not lost. Olaf’s guitar and Rick’s vocals are high quality. There are also some excellent songs here. Tracks 8-11 in the final third in particular are an essential part of At Vance’s discography, especially if you like their darker songs.
 

09 2012 Facing Your Enemy 6/10

Track Score Review
01 Heaven is Calling Great Memorable main riff. Very high energy refrain powerfully sung by Rick Altzi. Casey Grillo’s drums refuse to go for the obvious choice. Song has urgency and desperation.
02 Facing Your Enemy Good Very catchy mid paced song. At Vance’s only music video.
03 Eyes of a Stranger Average Main riff is boring. Solo is pretty good. Rick hits a soaring high note before the solo.
04 Fear No Evil Average Depressing and tired feeling, dirge like pace.
05 Live & Learn Average Main riff is good. Same as above.
06 Don’t Dream Average Nice harmonies, but the pace is soooo sloooow.
07 See Me Crying Average Almost good ABBA style song reminiscent of Heaven from the Chained Album. Not as good as that song though.
08 Savior Good Thank goodness. A fast Power Metal song reminiscent of songs from the Hartmann era like Witches Dance.
09 Tokyo (Tokyo cover) Average A good cover, but the songwriting style doesn’t really mesh with the other songs.
10 March of the Dwarf Good Enjoyable instrumental that with excellent rhythm section.
11 Fame and Fortune Good Rick Altzi nails the high notes in the chorus. The main riff is really good. A rather unremarkable solo and bridge section keeps the song from greatness.
12 Things I Never Needed Dislike Non-metal ballad. Sounds like Olaf Lenk himself on vocals, but imo can’t match the emotion of Who's Foolin' Who on the Chained album in 2005. The album ends not with a bang, but with a whimper.
13 Bonus 1 The Evil In You (Acoustic rerecording) Average Quite good, but unnecessary. Acoustic Cover of The Evil in You.
 
Production: Good
 
An improvement on the previous album. Feels a lot less digital, and the drums feel more human.
 
Performance: Good
 
Despite some great singing from Rick Altzi, some great guitar moments from Olaf Lenk, and an above-and-beyond performance from Kamelot drummer Casey Grillo, the album suffers from a lack of energy in too many songs.
 
Flow: Dislike
 
Most of the album suffers from too many mid-paced songs in a row.
 
Lyrics
 
Subject matter is mostly heart-break.
 
Conclusion
 
A valiant attempt to get back on track after the disappointing “Ride the Sky” album, but still an uneven album overall. The addition of a real drummer, a better production, and even a music video were smart moves. No band out-there sounds like At Vance and their unique sound is still in force here. Unfortunately, the middle portion, tracks 4-7 in particular, are a slog. Even the better songs tend to resemble songs on previous albums that were probably better. I’m glad we got this album though. It remains the only At Vance album of the 2010s, and compared to a lot of stuff released that decade, it is still a superior album.

2020.09.25 13:39 Worm2120 DIA conspiracy made top page of this sub finally!!! Now seems like the perfect time to maybe share new things, but more importantly ask for help in connecting MAJOR dots. They aren't THAT smart, we can solve this.

Hmm...
I'm so happy to see people are looking at Denver Airport again, however we were never looking close enough. I've been interested in DIA for quite a long time now and within the last year had the chance of visiting, and can't help but wonder why no one has ever found anything?
When you reach this point as a Conspiracy Hypothesizer (I didn't stutter), you have to realize that answer is still there, you just have to see the issue in a way many others aren't.
Now, to brush up on the basics of DIA:
At 33,531 acres (52.4 sq mi; 135.7 km2),[3] it is the largest airport in North America by land area and the second largest in the world, behind King Fahd International Airport.[4] Runway 1634L, with a length of 16,000 feet (3.03 mi; 4.88 km), is the longest public use runway in North America and the seventh longest in the world.
For reference; Manhattan stands at 22.82 mi^2, meaning you could fit Manhattan TWICE in DIA's property.
The runways totally DO look like Swastikas. You can't even deny it.
-Not to mention they openly admit, but never DISPROVE any conspiracies surrounding the airport. The effect has been... well no one thinks DIA is up to anything really anymore from workers claiming they've never seen anything to gargoyles literally mocking you for thinking they are up to something, they did a great job considering I still smell shit in the air and it isn't me. Yet the rest of the population seems to have forgotten some VERY important history.
Now onto some deeper thoughts:
The infamous "New world airport commission" stone.
The biggest thing anyone has pulled from this was that infamous, yet non-existent group that is first listed under "Contributors". While I agree this is strange, there is so much more to this stone guys.
Numerology:
March (3) 19, 1994.
1+9+1+9+9+4 = 33
Time Capsule to be opened in 2094 "for the people of Colorado"
20 + 9 + 4 = 33
-This date surrounding 1994 CANNOT BE COINCIDENTAL. I will prove it... keep reading.
Important person:
-Wellington E. Webb.
If you google that name with "Freemason", you'll find his PERSONAL WEBSITE. Where it strictly lists he is a 33rd degree mason, yet you cannot find that info anywhere else. This man is very mysterious to me and I'd love if someone can help me dig on all of this info. ANYWAY:
Wellington Webb's 1991 bid for mayor included his "Sneaker Campaign", in which he walked door to door through a large portion of Denver, introducing himself as a relatively unknown candidate.
Unknown candidate.
Webb served as mayor of Denver for 12 years, from 1991 to 2003. One highlight of his years in office was the South Platte River Corridor Project, involving commercial and residential redevelopment, as well as reclamation of park land, along the South Platte River in central Denver. He was also mayor at the time of the completion of Denver International Airport, started by his predecessor, Federico Peña.
Finished DIA, and is a 33rd degree Freemason. His name is on the stone, so this isn't hard to believe, I mean like he John Hancocked the thing lmao. Also in 1994:
In 1994, officials ordered a $62 million backup baggage system built to speed the airport's opening and to fill in until the kinks could be worked out of the main system.
So, Wellington Webb took over as mayor in 91', delayed DIA's opening 4 times and went so far over budget for an airport its unreal. The airport opened in 95', making 1994, the year the stone was also laid, the last year DIA would be closed and anything not hidden could be hidden.
Why am I so focused on 1994 and the stone?
-I was dumbfounded once I REALLY looked at the stone closer. Why is everyone so tied up on "The New World Airport Commission" if it doesn't exist on paper? Perhaps the members are listed on the stone I thought...
Martin Marietta Aeronautics.
That is the second name listed, right below the new world airport commission. Who is this company and why has no one ever heard of it you're wondering? Because in 1995, The Martin Marietta Corporation merged with the Lockheed Corporation to form what we now know today as: Lockheed Martin. This would make 1994 the last year that "Martin Marietta Aeronautics" would even exist, thus placing the stone in this year would never raise suspicion of conspiracy to anyone in the future, because Lockheed Martin is the most advanced technological companies in the entire world. Especially regarding military equipment. Just read up on some patents that Lockheed Martin holds to understand the true gravity of what this means.
Martin Marietta Corporation + Lockheed Corporation = Lockheed Martin = largest military arms supplier in the entire world, arguably holding the most advanced tech of our race = The New World Airport Commission? Why else would Martin Marietta hold any relevance to DIA whatsoever?
Fentress Bradburn Architects is also listed, though I couldn't find anything relevant but a quote:
I don't begin with a preconceived notion of what a building should be – it is not a sculpture. I prefer to patiently search through extensive discovery until I find a seam somewhere, crack it open and discover the art inside.[27]
from their Wikipedia page. The stone also lists:
Benjamin H. Bell Jr. and Claude w. Gray Sr. Both are very high ranking Freemasons, you've never heard of them before and cannot find ANYTHING online about these people EXCEPT for Freemason websites. VERY strange and I really need help finding out more, these people are smart but they are naive in thinking they can't be caught, the answer is here somewhere.
Now, this is gonna get me some hate I bet but I need to mention it: Wellington E. Webb, Benjamin H. Bell Jr, and Claude W. Gray Sr, are ALL 33rd degree African Americans. I don't know what this means or why, but I just know... it means something. Especially considering His recent political views from this 2020 interview. Notice him cheering on the violence of BLM protests:
Webb: I am so proud of these kids protesting that I boil over with pride. It’s also good to continue to see the old-timers who have been protesting police brutality and social justice issues for decades.
Hmmm...
Strange markings on the floors:
Dzit Dit Gaii - "White Mountain" - Blanca peak, Colorado. If you're paying close attention... you'll notice the ranking for this mountain for North American highest mountain peaks is ranked... 33rd. Why would this be put in a strange language in the middle of the airport? HMMMMMMMMMMMMM. No coincidences.
Anywho, I know DIA has just loads of shit out of the ordinary and spending multiple hundreds of millions of dollars for a "Luggage system" that failed is just not true. If you've worked there, I can assure you, you have not seen all 53sq Miles of that location and you never will. They could MILES underground for all we know and from the tech they can have. Anyway Im really tired so thats all I got for now lol, please help me expand on this info WE CAN SOLVE THIS MYSTERY PEOPLE WE JUST GOTTA THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!!!
EDIT: Just wanted to add that 54.2sq miles is also 33,531 acres... gotttaaaa love the 33rd.
EDIT2: just wanted to state that on a map, its eerie that DIA is practically the start of Denver.
Also, I took my own picture of Bluecifier when I flew in to DIA... ill never forget that horse man. https://imgur.com/a/7GYkLlL
