Engine RPS dies after engaging collective on prop plane
2020.09.27 01:28 Maethori0nEngine RPS dies after engaging collective on prop plane
Noob builder wondering why my rps falls from 25 to 4 when I up my collective Build: Twin engine aircraft modeled after a P-38 Lightning (WWII heavy fighter aircraft). Made to land on water, wheels not implemented yet. Setup: I have a medium engine powering each propeller independently. (props are 3 blades. I currently have Medium engine-> Clutch->->Gearbox 1->Gearbox 2->Propeller. Gearbox 1 is currently set at 3:2 and the second gearbox is currently set at 2:1. I've tried playing with the ratios but if I make it so the engines survive, I can't turn the propeller fast enough. I'm currently having buoyancy issues due to having three fuselages, thus making my water displacement is too low, so the bottom third of the propellers are in the water. I thought this might be the issue so to help with takeoff, I added two more medium engines separate from the propeller and added a fluid jet to each to assist with takeoffs from the water. The gearbox for the fluid jet is set to 9:5. In both cases when I add enough collective (prop) or clutch in (fluid jet) the engines RPS drops to under 10 or the engines die altogether. I also tried switching to a large engine on the propellers and the same thing occurred, but the engine rested at a slightly higher rps. Any help is welcome and appreciated. If anybody wants to look at the setup in game please let me know and I'll post it to the workshop and send a link.
Unitrends Backup Server (24tb RAW in array + 2x 1tb drives)
Supermicro E200-8D Dual Rackmount Shelf
StarTech 12U Open Frame Rack
Cisco ASA 5512-X Firewall
Cisco C3560G 24TS
Cisco 3825 V05
Avocent Autoview 2015 KVM
Truvision NVR 21P (2x 2.0TB WD Purple Drives)
APC AP7752 ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch)
All items were pulled from an in-office datacenter about 6 months ago. Datacenter was kept at 65 degrees F year round. I planned on using them in a homelab but between noise and power I decided to go with a smaller option instead. I used pricing that I found with a quick look online but I know some may be way off so I am open to ALL offers. I would prefer local pickup for any of the larger items as I do not have the ability to easily pack things like the server but if you are willing to pay shipping I can make it happen (excluding the 42u rack) The APC cabinet is in good condition. No damage that I can see. Includes 2 keys for the front door, back door, and 4 side panels. There are 7 of the 8 cable organizers in the back. The Unitrends 2u backup server (no idea the model number if someone can help me figure that out I am happy to get it) is in good working order. It has 8x 3.0tb drives in the hot swap bays and an additional 2x 1tb drives inside the unit. It has redundant power supplies (both working). It is a rebranded Supermicro server. It has several expansion cards (RAID, eSATA, fiber channel). CPU: Intel Xeon X3450 @ 2.76GHz RAM: 8gb x 4 (32gb Total) ECC RAM. It still has the centos Unitrends operating system installed but it is no longer under support. The Supermicro shelf is a fairly specific item. I have an E200-8D and bought this to mount it but my small rack is too shallow to fit. It does not have the box but is brand new. Never mounted and all hardware is included in original packaging. If you want to see what it looks like here is the item page https://www.cdw.com/product/Supermicro-rack-mounting-kit-2-systems-1U/5073009?pfm=srh The Startech rack is a basic rack. I used it briefly for a Cisco lab. All open and leans back at a slight angle so no need to bolt it down or anything. Concerning all the Cisco gear. I pulled some of the from my CCNA lab and some of it never made it in. I can provide configs or further details if needed. Also, I have no idea the Cisco market so if you are interested in anything please feel free to send me any offer as I just want it out of my house. Avocent Autoview 2015 is the main unit only. I have 3 or 4 adapters for it. Truvision NVR. I do not know how many cameras the unit is currently licensed for. When I had it in place I had 7 cameras running on it so it is at least 7. I am not sure the licensing model for this unit but it looks like its 8/16/32 so at least 8 I would guess. It has 4.0TB total with another 6 open slots for expansion. APC AP7752 automatic transfer switch. I really wanted to be able to use this one as its really cool but I do not have a generator or an L5-20P outlet in my house so I have to give it up. If anyone has any questions let me know. Most will have to be local pickup due to the size but the HP blades can be shipped if needed. I am currently in Livingston TX (about an hour North of Houston but I travel weekly to Houston for work). I work in Humble/IAH area.
2020.09.26 23:04 ZathamosWhy I blame AAPL for this selloff
Firstly I'd just like to say in general, I am not an apple user, I in fact hate the OS but thats not why I blame them for this crash nor does it make me at all bias when dealing with the market. To put this as simply as I can to save anyone time if you don't want to read the technicals or to get an overview, they are waaaay overvalued and make up too much of the market indexes. Simple reasoning, hype and fear. Suddenly after covid apple became 'a safe stock to keep money in' then hype built, then a split, now its just the realization of all that accumulation that has caused a sell off. But lets get technical cuz any idiot could use that reasoning. First lets talk about Apple, their business model, and their history. Founded in 1974 by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs, funded by Ronald Wayne. Wayne is inconsequential to the business so he wont come up again. Wozniak hasnt been involved since the 80s and Jobs has been gone almost a decade now. The motto behind Apple though was opposite of Microsoft's. Apple built things consumers needed and that marketed themselves. Microsoft built tech we didnt know we needed and sold that to manufacturers, not consumers. One is consumer based one is tech based, yes apple is a tech giant, but their basic business model is about consumer products, not technological advancements. I realize a lot of their products were technological advancements, but that wasnt what their business model was. If there hadnt been the market for a better smartphone we never would have gotten the iphone. There is a video online of steve jobs responding to an insult, and he basically states this during that video and its clear in what they produce and focus on. Most of these are things we see and use every day, thats the point. While yes we use Microsoft products literally every day, we aren't nearly as consciously aware of it as we are apple products. Apple has also basically stopped advancing rapidly, while every year phones improve they continue to do what they did in the 80s, fall further and further behind the competition. Microsoft bailed them out in the 80s with dos coding and they got bailed out in the early 00s by Tony Fadell and phillips electronics with the ipod. Guess what, they are falling behind again. Now lets talk the stock. For one, the market is based on growth, in order for a stock price to go up growth must be invisioned by investors otherwise why would anyone chase it up. Since 2015 apple has stalled though. While it's seeing great sales, the growth has stalled out, meanwhile the stock continues to go up and up, pretty counterintuitive, first warning sign. AAPL growth https://imgur.com/gallery/vgoQBcD Besides sales, technical chart analysis on apple should make any investor nervous. Here are 4 big market caps making up a good chunk of the nasdaq; apple, amazon, Microsoft, and google, with some trend lines im going to refer to: MSFT https://imgur.com/gallery/x9pCHR4 AMZN https://imgur.com/gallery/r6uEPq4 GOOG https://imgur.com/gallery/krlTgba AAPL https://imgur.com/gallery/pxtv4Uj Did you see it? All of these are over their trend lines (google not much), but its a matter of why and how much higher. Ill start with Microsoft, 3 steady lines, 2010-2013, then 2013-2018, then 2018 to covid. Since covid Microsoft has seen growth in the use of their platforms like microsoft teams. So it makes sense they went a little higher. Amazon has 3 as well, 2010-2015, 2015-covid, post covid. This one frankly makes the most sense as amazon clearly got a major shot in the arm for business with covid lockdowns. So yes amazon is a lot higher, but they should be with everyone shopping from home as much as we are. Id also like to just note the richest man in the world jeff bezos makes around 215 million dollars a DAY. Amazon made over 280 billion last year, apple made 260 billion. Yet who again has the bigger market cap? Warning sign number 2 here. Google has had the most steady trend lines of all of them, they have been on their current trend since 2017 but also have 3 trend lines total, 2010 to 2014 and 2014 to 2017. They are actually currently still right on that trend line and considering how diverse owning one share makes you (space x, ai, etc), this might be one of the mist undervalued stocks on the market right now. Now our baby Apple, you have a trend line from basically 2010 to 2018. Since 2018 they started taking off, i guess that kinda makes sense since thats when their sales picked back up. But they had been growing for 8 years prior with no real world growth. Warning sign number 3. Then if we zoom in with some trend lines drawn, well take a look: Apple trend lines https://imgur.com/gallery/Uhm3xT5 Since they announced their split jul 31st they have been moving parabolic (unsustainably vertical). Look how far off any realistic trend line it got, that is so far overextended of course its going to pull back violently. And now that their market cap (which is overvalued) is so big, when they move we all move. Microsoft is coming out with the xbox and all the gaming stocks are starting to go nuts right now, why isnt Microsoft, because of apple. If the Nasdaq looks terrible (thanks apple) the whole sector starts to bail and get into other recovery stocks like banks and travel, which is what happened. Apple went up 30% in august, microsoft went up 12.5%. Not even remotely close to the same kind of move. Microsoft went from 202 to 237, apple went from 97 to 137. To expnd further upon this, lets look at even prior to that. Microsoft went from 174 on may 1st to 202 july 31, thats up $28 or 13.86%. During that same period apple went from 72 to 97, thats up $25 or 25.8%, double what microsoft did in both cases. Dont tell me they all performed the same. Now tech is starting to recover and the small caps are seeing big gains. But these larger caps may get stuck in place because apple realistically, still has a long way to fall. Id be willing to bet apple falls under 97 soon, followed by plummeting to 87-88, that is where the stock should actually be IMO based on chart analysis. Oh and here is how Samsung compared to Apple stock. Samsung vs Apple https://imgur.com/gallery/JirJ88i Yeah apple is not that much bigger than Samsung and havent taken away their market share. Both are direct competitors that do the exact same thing. I'm still overall bullish on the market, but damnit apple, you are not the biggest company in the world, you don't have a monopoly on phones and computers, you can't even advance your business more (they are trying with things like apple pay). Hurry up and correct yourself so we can start getting back into these great major caps like the Microsoft's, Amazon's, and Google's. Sorry if this sounded like a vent, but there seems to be so many things that people are just totally willing to completly overlook with apple, cuz its apple. At least thats my two cents and thanks for reading. Part if my other problem with apple is its a lot like tesla. A lot of apple users swear by it and think they will run the world, the same people downvote this due to denial of facts. Apple isnt the biggest company in the world and it shouldnt even be in the top 5 realistically.
2020.09.26 20:26 DabsByMike[CONFLICT] Operation Senseless Veto -- Brazilian Cruise Missiles Strike Targets in Chad
Federative Republic of Brazil
Brazilian Armed Forces
Operation Senseless Veto is being launched as authorized by a United Nations General Assembly resolution to act to defend Chadian sovereignty after approval by over 2/3 of UN Member States. The operation is named so as a criticism of China, whose veto of the UNSC Resolution on the same issue was so absurd and arbitrary, it has lead to the creation of a precedent to bypass China's veto power via the UNGA. A clear cut illegal action by Alkebulan cannot be vetoed in this manner by China. Brazil has pointed to this as a case study of why the UNSC should be reformed to include it and that nations like China and Russia are deeply hurting their interests by pretending to have some magical power in refusing to reform the system. The more this goes on, the more irrelevant that power becomes. Thus, they must approve reform or else be left without influence on the international stage. Strategic Objectives: Brazil is strictly upholding the mandate of the UNGA authorization, that is, to use military pressure to end the rule of the illegitimate military junta in Chad and to remove Alkebulan's presence from that country. Thus, the original operational planning will be confined to the Chadian theater. Additional phases of Senseless Veto will be contingency plans against Alkebulan escalation. Brazil is keeping in line with multilateral legitimacy and also avoiding direct attacks on Alkebulan-proper to uphold its word to China that it would not go after the West African state directly. However, should China intervene, Brazil is deploying forces to the theater to react (m: it's my understanding that if an unanticipated additional claim intervenes then that's grounds for a new conflict post so I will deal with China separately if that becomes something to deal with)
Phase 1: Military Build-Up
Brazil has a variety of assets already in the region due to previous military commitments:
Maintenance Centers -- Denying the ability to operate in the country for prolonged periods
Logistics building and equipment/supply depots
Radar systems and air defense systems if/as they appear, before they're established (m: Brazilian ships are already in place to fire)
Air bases (m: Tion didn't specify any so I cannot either)
Major Chadian Army bases
Electric Grid and Power Generation Infrastructure
Phase 3: Air Strikes on Chad
IF AND ONLY IF LAURENTIA/USE ESTABLISH AIR SUPERIORITY OVER AIRSPACE BETWEEN REPUBLIC OF CONGO AND CHAD The aircraft stationed in Pointe Noire (Republic of Congo) will be used to strike all sorts of military assets Alkebulan has moved into Chad and provide combat air patrol support, simply put. These airstrikes will be conducted under allied command in Moçamedes, jointly determined by Brazilian, USE, and Laurentian commanders.
Phase 4: Ground Defense and Counter-Attack
GROUND DEFENSE PLAN ALONG BORDERS MAP OF GROUND OPERATIONS A number of units are being put on high alert and deployed for combat to defend border areas in case of Alkebulan attack. (Border area responsibilities are shown with solid lines; dotted line shows counter-attacks) Angola State
5th Armored Cavalry Brigade (Green Line)
272nd Motorized Infantry Brigade (Pink Line)
278th Mechanized Cavalry Brigade (Blue Line)
273rd Jungle Infantry Brigade (Cyan Line)
274th Mechanized Cavalry Brigade (Red Line)
Angola State -- Cabinda Exclave
271st Motorized Infantry Brigade (Maroon Line)
Republic of Congo
5th Marine Infantry Brigade (Purple Line)
7th Motorized Infantry Brigade (Sea Green? Line)
These forces, along with Laurentian deployments, will be tasked with active defense of the borders. The entire Brazilian Army stationed in Angola is ready in reserve if a large attack comes; however, logistical difficulties will likely limit the scale of such an attack for Alkebulan. Coupled with air support and the qualitative advantage of Brazilian troops, high command does not expect to have a problem. IF AND ONLY IF ALKEBULAN ATTACKS REPUBLIC OF CONGO OR BRAZILIAN TERRITORY IN ANGOLA STATE If attacked, the Brazilian Army will undertake a large counter-attack. Brazil has warned Alkebulan to not escalate in this theater but is ready to respond forcefully. Alkebulan's logistics capabilities and centralization of peripheral territories in Enzere (former DRC) are very poor. The strategy of a counter-attack will mainly revolve around seizing the coastline of Enzere which will be a death sentence for inland operations. A subsequent round of fighting could lead to a full Brazilian invasion in the future, with the territory cut off from resupply. Troops in Cabinda and the 272nd Motorized Infantry Brigade will invade coastal areas, focusing on capturing the critical port city of Matadi. The 5th Armored Cavalry Brigade, equipped with Brazil's elite EE-52 Main Battle Tanks and equipped with an electromagnetic-boosted gun to kill opposing "fourth generation" tanks with ease, will seize the highway to the west and east of Kinshasa -- avoiding attacking the city itself of course. This will stop reinforcements from coming to the coastal area, easing up the other two units' jobs. Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo is conjoined to Kinshasa across the river. With a Siper SAM protecting the area from retaliation and with superior anti-battery capabilities, the 7th Motorized Infantry Brigade stationed there with accompanying units is expected to deal a significant blow on the Enzere provincial capital with relative ease. Joined by additional Astros rocket launchers, the howitzers of the 7th Motorized will shell anything of military value in Kinshasa day and night. Police stations and other critical establishments related to keeping government control of the territory will also be considered legitimate targets. Guided munitions will be preferred when necessary but, of course some collateral damage will occur. Aerial assets in Angola state, Republic of Congo, and situated on the nearby aircraft carrier are all ready for air support as needed. After the first attack on Brazilian or RoC territory, a wave of airstrikes will be focused on SEAD and destroying stationary targets, after which their focus will shift to close air support. EA-30 electronic warfare aircraft are on standby specifically for this SEAD mission, as well as escorting fighter in air-to-air engagements. Importantly, F-35 Mk7 fighters which have been newly upgraded will be able to use their self-defense lasers to gain a distinct advantage, as well as control MQ-350 wingman drones in air-to-air and air-to-ground engagements.
Naval and Nuclear Preparations
In addition to the task force in the Mediterranean Sea, the Brazilian Navy will be active with a carrier strike group positioned roughly 600 km southwest of Sao Tome. They will be ordered to destroy the Alkebulan Navy if a ground attack on Brazilian territory comes, besides providing air support to ground operations (as previously mentioned). Equipped with supersonic anti-ship missiles like the MAN-400 and almost completely equipped with self-defense lasers and layered anti-missile defenses, the Brazilian Navy expects it to have a very high kill ratio against the never-seen-combat and poorly organized Alkebulan Navy. Brazilian nuclear forces back in the mainland and missile defenses will be on high alert. Nuclear submarines in the carrier task force will be equipped with several nuclear-equipped MANT-455 cruise missiles. In the event that Brazilian Army units start to get pushed back on the Alkebulan-Angola state frontier, the Brazilian Air Force is authorized to use Mk-2N tactical nuclear bombs on advancing enemy troops.
I decided to develop a growth stock investing scorecard as a way to objectively analyze potential growth stock investments. I like the idea of a scorecard because it will help avoid biases and subjective judgments about companies, and gives me a way of comparing and ranking potential investments. I'm posting it here for constructive feedback. I've broken the scorecard down into 5 categories with a list of criteria under each category. Each criteria fulfilled earns the stock a point, and I've put it in a Word document so I have space for comments. Without further ado... Revenue growth
Annual revenue growth >15% for the past 3 years
Annual revenue growth >25% for the past 3 years
Annual revenue growth >40% for the past 3 years
Recent acceleration in annual revenue growth
Revenue growth expected to continue at a similar pace
Increasing YoY quarterly revenue growth
Recurring revenue model (e.g., a subscription or "razor blade" model, as opposed to individual sales)
Leader or "big dog" in the sector
Has a clear moat (difficult for others to compete or take market share)
Changes how we live/work
Strong balance sheet
Current ratio >1.5
Positive operational cash flow
Good profit margins
Growth in operating income
EPS+ or heading towards profitability
Expected growth in EPS (if profitable)
P/S within recent (1-2 year) range
P/S at low end of recent range
P/E within recent range
P/E at low end of recent range
The last category is the only one I'm not 100% sure about. Since I'm an amateur investor I'm trying to find a way to analyze stocks without investing huge amounts of time, and comparing P/S or P/E ratios to other competitors can be time consuming. So a quicker way to assess whether a stock is overpriced is to compare its current P/S or P/E to to its "typical" P/S or P/E range.
2020.09.26 17:45 SmallBusinessOpsShort Bus For Sale How to deal with rust on a used bus and how to decide if you need a preowned or a new bus?
https://preview.redd.it/bohnjs1tiip51.png?width=930&format=png&auto=webp&s=e79e8bc57f6f3a44f2cd35e3a1b3cc7f8fe62733 When buying a short bus for sale that has already been in use for some time, check it thoroughly before making a purchase decision. A little bit of wear and tear is okay but too much is bad. A little bit of rust is fine if there is too much then the buyer should completely ignore the vehicle and move on to the next used bus for sale in the market. Like all preowned vehicles, even buses have rust and some amount of wear and tear. Rust is a problem of concern for all buyers of preowned vehicles. In the case of buses, rust tends to spread from the inside out on the body and from down to upwards on the chassis. During the winter and snowy seasons, there is a lot of salt present on the road because municipal corporations use it to clear the snow and reopen the road to traffic. As the vehicle is being driven on these roads with a high amount of salt content, water droplets get sprayed on the chassis as the tires roll forward. Of course, all buses are equipped with mud flaps but they are never sufficient to fully protect the chassis from every single drop of salty water on the road. As this saltwater comes in direct with the metal parts on the chassis, it triggers the electrochemical oxidation of the metal parts thus leading to corrosion and rust. Rust has the heavenly right to spread, spread, and spread more until it has eaten up the entire vehicle or until it is treated and removed. A tiny scratch of rust can soon scale up in size in a matter of months and in its final stages create holes in the metal walls which is also called penetration rust. Penetration because mechanics can always see through the other side. This is difficult to treat and expensive too because it takes several hours to fix the problem which increases the cost of labor. In order to prevent the chassis from catching rust, it is advisable that bus owners thoroughly wash their vehicles from underneath and let it dry off completely before driving it for the next trip. They should also coat the chassis with rust-resistant treatment to prevent salt and moisture present in the atmosphere to directly come in contact with the metallic surface. When there is no contact between these elements, there will be no rust. A short bus for sale may have a fiberglass body that is immune to corrosion and rust because its exterior is made up of fiber and glass but not metal. Such a vehicle is maybe a bit expensive but a better choice in the long run. It will also give a handsome return on investment when the owner decides to resell the bus several years down the road. However, other buyers with limited budgets may decide to purchase a traditional bus with a metal body. In both the scenarios, rust tends to spread from the inside out. Water can pour into the passenger cabin from the window, from leaking seams on the rooftop, from passengers carrying residual water along with them during the rainy season, or simply because of condensation within the passenger cabin. All efforts must be taken to keep the cabins dry and prevent water from entering inside. Check the seams thoroughly and apply caulking material to ensure there are no leakages. Leaking joints are bad for your bus and will substantially reduce its life span and also its resale value thus causing the owner to lose potentially thousands of dollars without him knowing about it. Similarly, every buyer is advised never to buy a leaking bus because there are plenty of better options available in the market. When a professional inspection reveals that a bus has leakage either water or oil, the buyer should ignore such a bus and move on to the next vehicle. Alternatively, they can try to get an estimate as to how much it will cost to fix the leakage. If the seller is ready to fix the issue or discount the price, then the buyer may consider the purchase of a leaking bus. But as a general rule of thumb, never opt to buy a bus that leaks. Too much rust on critical parts and components of the bus is a red signal and buyers should stay away because they can potentially wreak havoc with their budgets trying to fix this issue. The cost of buying a part and replacing it with old parts can be too much. Moreover, before undertaking such an adventure the buyer will have to precisely find out where to source the spares from. If its a late model bus then finding spares in the local market may be easy. However, if its an old, obscure, or foreign model then chances are high the spares may not be available or will have to import from foreign countries. The cost of replacing parts will include the purchase price, international shipping freight, and import duties. The most simple question that comes to the mind is "do you want to drive a bus and transport people?", or "do you want to break your bank?". Oil plays a vital role in the smooth functioning of a bus as well as its longevity. For example, oil is used as a rust-resistant treatment on the chassis and several important components of the vehicle to prevent them from coming in direct contact with air and salt thus preventing rust. Then there is engine oil which is used for internal combustion that moves the vehicle forward and there is lubricating oil that is used to smoothen friction between two metal parts that move simultaneously. Before buying a used bus for sale, the buyer must conduct a detailed oil analysis of the vehicle's oil because if there are too many metal traces present in the engine oil then it can lead to the internal wear and tear of the engine. Similarly, if there is too much dilution, dirt, or anti-freeze content present in the lubricating oil, then it may lose its viscosity and not perform its function well which will potentially lead to deterioration of the metallic parts. Most used buses for sale do not have any warranty left on them but its always better to ask and verify if that is true. Every part of the vehicle has a separate warranty and if the engine is covered under a warranty plan then it may hold valid only when a specific type of oil is used. Check with the owner, if there is a warrant available on the engine, if yes then what type of oil does it wants to be used and did the owner follow instructions mentioned in the warranty. If the owner is found guilty of not following procedures and instructions on the warranty plan then this could be a good point for a bargain and get a big discount on the bus price. Ever since the 15 passenger van for sale was deemed unfit for public transportation by the department of transportation in 2006, the demand for short buses for sale has skyrocketed and it has kept increasing steadily every year. Insurance companies have either refused to offer coverage on these vans or have simply increased the monthly premiums to the extent that it becomes a financial burden to own a 15 seater van. As a result, many individuals, businesses, and organizations got rid of their vans and purchased a short bus for sale with the same seating capacity. But nowadays there are soo many buses available for sale in the bus auction markets across the USA that many buyers often get confused about which bus to buy. Cheap and low mileage buses are not always the best option because if the owner did not perform regular maintenance on schedule then chances are there might be a whole lot of problems hidden from the immediate sight. There are just too many manufacturers and models to choose from. Similarly, there is the question of which one should I buy new or used? Let's try to explain with the reasons below. Firstly, buyers should buy a short bus for sale from popular manufacturers like Ford, GMC, Chevrolet, Blue Bird, TurtleTop, etc because no matter where you go in the United States, their spare parts will be easily available in the local market. That means if in the rare scenario your bus breaks down then it can be fixed instantly within a few days. However, if the buyer gets lured into the trap of a good deal initially during the buying phase and ends up with a vehicle that is a rare or obscure model then chances are he will never be able to source its spare parts. In such cases, the buyer will be forced to resell his bus far more sooner than expected and start his search for another bus much earlier than expected. The buyer will end up wasting thousands of hard-earned dollars in the early selling and the purchasing of another bus too soon. As a simple rule, go for a Ford or Chevy E450 or E350 bus and never worry about the availability of spare parts anywhere in the United States. A short bus for sale is put to its optimal usage only when it drives 20,000 miles in a single year. If the buyer wants to use his bus every day, then he may add up to 25,000 miles on the odometer annually, hence he should opt for a new bus for sale. However, if the buyer wants to use the bus sparingly like say just twice or thrice a week then he may struggle to add 5,000 miles on the odometer. So why spend a fortune on buying a new bus if it will not be used to its optimal level? For example, a church bus uses 5000 miles annually whereas a transit company uses 25,000 miles. The church is advised to buy a used bus and the transit company should opt for a new bus. Before buying a bus calculate the total distance it will travel on the given route. The starting location is point A, the ending location is point B. Calculate the distance from point A to point B and back to point A, to include the return journey. This will give you the exact number of miles your bus will be required to travel in a single trip. Now multiply that with the number of times you will drive on this route in a week. Then multiply that answer with 53 which is the total number of weeks in a given year. This will give the exact number of miles your bus will be required to travel in a single year. If the answer is less than 20,000 miles then buy a used bus and if more than 20,000 miles then buy a new bus. Apart from miles, a bus can be purchased new or used depending on its usage in terms of years. If a buyer wants to use the bus for less than 5 years then he should buy a second hand bus for sale but if he wants to use the bus for more than 5 years like say 7, 10, or 15 years then he should opt for a new bus. Preowned buses are normally used for light-duty group transportation whereas their newer counterparts are employed for heavy-duty transportation. The life span of most shuttle buses is up to 300,000 miles or 15 years. Their first owner often uses them for nearly 100,000 miles or 5 to 7 years and then lists them for resale. The second owner has a golden opportunity to utilize the unused miles and years left on the buses that too at a price tag that is 60 to 70% lower than their newer counterparts. A short bus for sale offers a great opportunity to smart entrepreneurs to start their own transportation business because as the human population grows so does the demand for transportation and transit services provided by the governments of the various countries may not be flexible enough to meet the demand in every region for every purpose.

2020.09.26 17:43 PhilippineLeadXPSA: Online Scam Alert For Used Cars
Online Scam Alert For Used Cars Long story short: I got blinded by the prospect of acquiring a Ford Raptor for P1M and idiotically sent a reservation fee without any assurance. Then, boom. Scammed. No Raptor for my dumbass. Context: Sept. 24: I was browsing the philkotse website and chanced upon a post that was selling a Black Ford Raptor with Plate Number NBQ 6176. I checked LTO mobile verification: LTO VEHICLE NBQ6176 sent to 2600 (you can try it. Cost P2.50) and LTO came back with:
Plate no: nbq6176/ Make: ford/ Model: ranger 2.0l rap/ Year: 2019/ Color: absolute black/ Registered last 03/25/2019,has no LTO apprehension, has no LTO alarm. P2.50/text.
So, it was good. It was advertised under the name Joan Dantes with email address: [email protected] Mobile number 09066469289 / 09066467906 (These infos are public. Follow the above link) Sept. 25: I called up the numbers and an old guy with a distinct American accent answered and identified himself as Johann Saunders Lewis, who was based from Subic. The American said he was selling the Raptor for P1.150M because he was going back to the states and no one would be using it. I offered P1M via financing over the phone and he agreed. He said another guy was going to give a reservation fee so whoever reserves first gets the truck. I wanted it bad. I got blinded by the prospect of owning the truck for such a low price that I did not think clearly and got dumb and gullible. Did not do due diligence. He gave me a GCash number to send the reservation fee to (Arel Aranas 09533461334). Sent the money, emailed the deposit receipt to [email protected] and saw that he marked the Philkotse listing as sold at around 2:00pm. He called and said he'll print the receipt, together with the Deed of Sale. He'll send the truck to my area via his driver (Jandy Jabrica 09563569154) and leave it, but the keys would stay with him. It would only be turned over as soon as full payment has been done. I thought, "okay, sounds reasonable". That's where I got fucked. At 5:00pm, I tried to call the numbers and those were no longer available. I waited until evening and no truck came. Scammed. Fucked in the ass. Sept. 26: I'm posting this just in case these names and numbers appear again. I'm pretty sure they won't stop. I've already asked the help of Globe to block the GCash accounts involved and seek the help of the NBI Anti-cyber Crime (originally went to the PNP but referred me to NBI since crime was done online). I don't think anything good will happen really. They could be using pseudonyms & fake IDs to withdraw the GCash. Money is gone. Ford Raptor 2019 byebye. The money I lost was a small amount, something that I earn in a day, but it's the feeling of being scammed and being dumb for a truck that's really fucking me. That's it. I'm off to drink. Be safe everyone! Don't be a dumbass like me. Ps. Here's Another number used in the scam: (0961) 566 9017
2020.09.26 17:01 ClowmeowDealing with a single credit card that's snowballed.
So, a bit new to Reddit, but it's been helpful so far. So I've got 1, Wellsfargo credit card. I got it when I was prepping to move out, at the behest of my mother to build credit. It was pretty fine at first, I was taught not to treat it like money you don't have, and I've rarely if ever spent it on extravagant things. I still live pretty frugally, try to by food on sale (Split Chicken breast for 99 cents a pound is my favorite sort of deal, doesn't take much butchering either) But it's still caught up with me. I moved out of state with a partner five years back, in a little on bedroom for around 800 a month, working a retail job for Staples. I was planning to for to school, but I never felt very stable in giving it a try, not to mention I wanted a psychology degree, and that takes quite some time (I'm now in a Veterinary Technician Program, and actively in school) And the biggest harm I felt the credit card did, was blinding me to seeing that things "Wee not working." I mean, I thought if I worked well enough at my job, and lived frugally, I would just be "Okay." But the hours weren't there (Staples only highers part-time for none managers, and keeps it under 30 hours a week or so.) I just sort of figured I had to keep plugging away at it, for a promotion, or better circumstance, and it started building up. Before moving back to SC the nicest thing I had bought in Florida was a clearance floor model laptop for around 300, after using my partners for a couple of months. In hindsight, I should have talked to my partner about the living arrangement, or at least plugged through school and got prereqs done. I'm low enough income that grants should have paid for most of it. Or at least dropped Staples, since the pay and hours simply weren't liveable. But it was my first job, I held it down for seven years, it was only COVID that finally made them screw me over and I left (I now work at my moms Scrub Store, while going to school) So, I'm now in SC, living in a Trailer (Cheaper and nice then my last apartment, so no complaints other than dealing with sinking floors we need to repair) getting that paid off, it's 233 a month, paying for electric and internet with roomies. I've really tried to lower my costs even further, with an end goal of a better job, and getting it ALL dealt with. But It's still a balance of 14,000 on my Wells Fargo Credit Card, and I work as much as I can while still being able to go to classes, it's about 25 hours a week. We've already made some discussion about using my 529 plan money into paying for my bills, which it is allowed to do, thus they wouldn't be overwhelming me as much, and the money I'm working for can be used to really deal with this card more actively. But the interest is still decently high, and the minimum payment has raised, and we've been talking about debt consolidation, talking to the bank directly, and trying to negotiate a better rate. I mean I would LIKE to preserve my credit, I've never had a late bill or missed a payment at least, but it's still a lot, and I want to chip away and deal with it as effectively as possible. Any financial advice is appreciated, I feel like I've tightened my belt opperately, but I'm still no saint, I've grabbed a game on sale here and there. But I'm mainly looking for the best way to deal with this card, with the best balance of a low-interest rate and preserving my credit, I'm aware one will take away from the other. Honestly, even backrucpy is an option, the trailer, my car, not in my name. But that's of course the nuclear option. TL:DR I've got 14,000 sitting on one Wells Fargo credit Card, and I went to tackle that debt the most effective way I'm able. I'm a College Student for the next 3 or so years, and I manage about 25 hours at 9.5 per a week.

2020.09.26 13:43 samuelaleAwesome Delivery Experience In NJ
Picked up my Model Y yesterday! It's been great so far. Car details: - Pickup Location: New Jersey (Paramus) - Configuration: Midnight Silver Metallic LR AWD. Black Interior. No FSD, No Tow Hitch, Gemini Wheels. - Ordered 8/25, VIN is 47XXX Same as everyone else here waiting for a car, I was worried about issues having been on Reddit and having watched all the videos about quality issues. Glad to say it went really well. Some Highlights:
My delivery specialist got stuff done earlier than the pickup time for me (I arrived a little earlier)
I found the car outside before the delivery so my wife and friends got a chance to inspect it thoroughly.
Everyone was polite and friendly.
Car was great to drive!
Now, to the (very minor) issues: - They proactively pointed out the only real noticeable cosmetic problem with the car which was some extra glue residue on the edge of the rearview window glass. Purely cosmetic and not jarring. They said they can handle that through the service request flow. They just wanted to point it out in case I had any objections. I didn't - Evaporation residue on frunk and other parts of the car like under the front grill, came off with a few wipes. - Taillights jutting out a little but symmetrically. The only real issue I had was software related - when I started driving the touchscreen was glitching and detecting the touch way off to the right of where I was actually touching it (but only in the navigation UI). I turned the car off and turned it on and it was fine. Also for anyone used to the Google Maps look and feel, the navigation is slightly different but I got used to it after a few miles. The weird part is that by default it wasn't changing the navigation layout based on my orientation. Additionally, if you open up the whole direction list on left of the map the map zooms out and that can be confusing. These are things I didn't notice during the test drive but don't matter in Long run. Overall a great experience. App started working immediately. Car is fantastic to drive, super smooth and quiet. Very roomy at the back so my friends were happy too. Pic: https://imgur.com/a/mfhf6ae Lame Douchebro Mode ✅

Why Investment Advisors in the Bitcoin Market are Needed
https://preview.redd.it/jc7wj6lgfep51.jpg?width=700&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=49a9b51a664cb288744da074ef17ecfa76cb8de1 Retail investors who are seeking to buy Bitcoin face challenges such as undeveloped crypto market infrastructure and complexity of the blockchain technology. They typically are not able to define a proper investment strategy and the optimal portfolio allocation to the new asset class. Therefore, they need professional assistance in making informed investment decisions. Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) are professional investment consultants who advise individuals and institutions about investment decisions and manage their investment portfolios. Investment advisors typically charge a management fee of ~1% of Assets Under Management (AUM). Online robo advisors provide their services online and charge a management fee of ~0.25% of AUM.
Investment Advisors in a Waiting Mode When It Comes to Investing in Crypto
https://preview.redd.it/g5ambuzifep51.jpg?width=512&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f38cc37bfd05efa0a1f86ceee37242899e986e87 Registered investment advisors (RIAs) are still hesitant to enter the crypto market because of the lack of clear regulations and reliable valuation models. In addition, investment advisors still do not have sufficient knowledge of the crypto market infrastructure and basic blockchain expertise to explain their clients how digital assets such as Bitcoin work and the pros and cons of purchasing them. The majority of investment advisors in the United States, including online robo advisors, such as Betterment and Wealthfront, still do not provide investment recommendations in the digital assets space. Besides regulatory uncertainty, registered investment advisors currently do not provide investment advice in the digital assets space because the crypto market is highly volatile, inefficient, and exposed to market manipulation. These issues are common for new asset classes and we believe that crypto market will become more efficient, transparent, and regulated, in the next few years. Finally, registered investment advisors are waiting for regulated and liquid investment products in the digital assets space, such as Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). These financial instruments are still not available and waiting for the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approval.
Future of Investment Advisory Services in the Digital Assets Space
https://preview.redd.it/xtg0jk7pfep51.jpg?width=942&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8103bc85e01e517cd0810aa78b6e8026ec937476 We assume that in the next couple of years financial advisors will be forced to understand Bitcoin and other digital assets. This will happen because investors are always looking for uncorrelated asset classes to diversify their investment portfolios. At the same time, new financial instruments linked to Bitcoin and other crypto assets’ performance already move further into the mainstream. We believe that there will be a significant demand for financial advisors who are well versed in the digital assets space and who can help clients to safely navigate the complexities of investing in this exponentially growing market. https://preview.redd.it/jghut5irfep51.jpg?width=810&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fc29d0c296df571688742f4b3c0d02820d424fd9 Besides traditional investment advisors (RIAs), online robo advisors will be forced to enter this rapidly growing market as the demand for investments in the digital assets space is growing exponentially. Institutional and individual investors are willing to invest in Bitcoin and other crypto assets because of the portfolio diversification benefits and high potential investment return. Alternative asset classes have been always an important component of the balanced investment portfolio. Importantly, digital assets such as Bitcoin can serve not only as an alternative investment but also as a digital store of value, which adds additional value to investing in this new asset class.

2020.09.26 03:28 SennasnayrUnweaving The Social Justice Movement
Sennas Nayr 09/25/2020 Unweaving The Social Justice Movement The common person may have noticed a change in their world within the last ten years. Particularly in the states, but also here in Canada there has been a rise in a specific type of activism. It is known for being performativity dramatic when in a public setting and focuses on subjects, such as inequality in the areas as sex, gender and income, to only name a few. Even if the common person has not been alerted specifically to those things, he may have noticed an initiative to fine tune, not just the community, people and values within, but the world beyond it as well. Socialism A Love Story Canada has been in a love affair with socialism as far back as 1921, and only until recently has this infatuation blossomed into the safe space alarmism and revolutionary polarization we experience today. Socialism itself is the economic implementation of communism which comes from Marxist theory. Communisms past within Canada’s history began with their own political history and inception of their first communist political party. The uninitiated may ask, what is communism? In the 21st century, millennials and generation z are seemingly out of touch with the cannonized narrative of socialisms past and the never ending conversation over its morality. Canada’s personal history with communism began with the inception of the Communist Party of Canada. The CPC describes themselves as communist as well as Marxist-Leninism, as well as being on the far – left. The CPC is also responsible for publishing a Vancouver based newspaper called the People’s Voice, a newspaper that reflects the viewpoints of the CPC and claims to have “the news that the corporate media won’t print”(1). What exactly is communism? Karl Marx and Friedrich Engles wrote the Communist Manifesto in 1847. The book embodied Marx’s materialistic conception of history and surveys that history from the age of feudalism down to the 19th century capitalism was to be overthrown and replaced by a workers society(2). In other words, the working class must seize the means of production, the machinery or equipment used in the process of creating capital from the capitalists. The long term goal of this was to create a global worker run dictatorship where from entry level to CEO are all working classpeople. This may sound like an equitable and ethical way of life, but the USSR was far from ethical. The October Revolution of 1917 ushered in the Russian Soviet Republic, and one year later on July 17/1918 the Tzar and his family were executed.(3) The USSR ran on forced prison labor which provided the manpower for soviet post war government projects. Some of these projects included the Moscow-Volga Canal, the White Sea Baltic Canal and the Kolyma Highway. The method of forced labor was used as a method of control, and a way to purge the country of not only the privileged, intellectual and Kulak classes, but any suspected counter revolutionaries. Secret police would arrest and interrogate soviet citizens not only on the grounds of class, but citizens were also reported for any disparaging remarks toward the Russian Soviet Republic and other frivolous crimes by their neighbor, employer or other unknown sources. Slowly the Soviet power structure began to purge bourgeois aberrations from the professional ranks. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn described the denigration of the people by the tyrannical hand of the RSR by the cheka(the secret police later known as the KGB); The theoretical view of the suspects guilt was incidentally quite elastic from the very beginning. In his instructions on the use of the Red Terror. The Checkist M.I. Latsis wrote: “In the interrogation do not seek evidence and proof that the person accused acted in word or deed against Soviet Power. The first question should be: What is his class, what is his origin, what is his education and what is his upbringing? These are the questions that must determine the fate of the accused?”(4). The belief here was that the bourgeois had claim to a royal legacy inherited from the Tzars, which played a part in the social class they held, that had previously reined prior to the Bolshevik revolution. The USSR’s dream of a worker run state had a successor in the east. The implementation of Mao’s Cultural Revolution of 1966 was executed in similar fashion and ideology. It was revolutionary just like the Soviets. It was first implemented not only by gradually purging the existing political party of any bourgeois or counter revolutionary elements, but by also dividing the farmed land into communes maintained by a number of peasants. Mao insisted that each commune would produce grain and later on steel in exchange for foreign profit. The largely agricultural land of China was farmed by peasants, some land owning, and their class consciousness was raised to the point where China’s working class believed that the land owning peasants, the landlords, had stolen everything they had from them ,the working class. While segregated into these communes it gave them the perfect chance to organize into witch hunts in order to strip landowners of their goods, their land and of their lives. Is it good, and if so who is it good for? The worker run dictatorship not only attempted to create a world where the workers seized the means of production. But on the road to heaven it created hell. It constructed another ruling class who then went ahead and oppressed the workers all over again with it’s heavy handed police state. It created safety for anyone who was a prosecutor, or within the ranks of the communist party, or anyone within the Cheka. If you were the one conducting the investigation, prosecution or interrogation of a potential traitor, then you to be safer from any accusation and less likely of being a victim of the Gulag(Main Directorate of Camps). After the October Revolution, the Bolsheviks created the Revolutionary Tribunals. These kangaroo courts were used to root out any suspected counter revolutionary moles, and to slowly break down a subjects resolve over multiple trials before finally getting them to break down and admit any trespasses, whether they be true or not. The Revtribunal had the final say in regard to your fate, and by it’s decree could initiate investigations and round up new pawns for their kangaroo courts. This created a state of paranoia within the USSR among the lower class, in which they, and the alleged counter revolutionaries and intelligensia were under constant surveillance, and at risk of being reported to the Cheka for any suspected crime or perceived minor infraction toward the state. This created a prison class who was forced to work, increase production, and expand the reach of the country. At the top of this class sat the party who reaped the rewards of this labor, and confiscated the possessions of there prisoners. The Romantic notion of the exploited versus exploiter began to migrate from the east to the west, interestingly to American universities. The working class struggle of Asia was still unforgotten, but a new working class would soon unfortunately pick up the torch in the 1960’s . The German Philosopher, Herbert Marcuse, has been accepted as the father of the modern social justice movement, fled Nazi Germany in 1934 to come to the United States, so he could spread his own personal version of tolerance. His vision would only change within a generation into the future and end up at an intersection in 1989. The New Bolsheviks A new generation of working class was fermenting prior to the American hippie movement of the 60’s. Although they were not among the ranks of the old working class, the blue collar. The USA had now gotten past the Great Depression of the 1930’s , and besides employment stabilizing since then, the capitalist economy had provided comfortable living conditions and rendered them incapable of fomenting into any effective revolutionary force. The new working class, students and those in the hippie movement, were not fighting to liberate themselves from feudal landlords anymore, there was now a new oppressor to rise up against, and this new oppressor was the vague notion of power. It was about who had it, how to take it back and how to redistribute the power accordingly. The concept of power transcends financial power, although it does include that, the modern notion of power in the modern day is much more abstract then that. Herbert Marcuse has been accepted as the progenitor of the modern social justice movement and he had his beginnings teaching in the states. Marcuse had published his book “Repressive Tolerance” which had inspired the next generation of academic intellectuals throughout the hippie movement. Marcuse argued that tolerance and free speech confer benefits on society only under special conditions that almost never exist: absolute equality He believed that when power differentials exist between groups, tolerance only empowers the already powerful and makes it easier for them to dominate institutions like education, media and channels of communication(5) What Marcuse advocated for was a “liberating tolerance “ that would favor the weak and restrain the strong(5). What we can infer from this is that discrimination is morally correct to do in order to correct an imbalance of power. The problem is that the theory itself does not take into account the individual humanity of each person. It assumes that every decision a person makes is intended to encroach on the rights or freedoms of another, dividing the world into good vs. evil. For Marcuse, writing in 1965, the weak was the political left and the strong was the political right. Even though the Democrats controlled Washington at this time, Marcuse associated the right with the business community, military, and other vested interests that he saw as wielding power, hoarding wealth, and working to block social change, while the left referred to students, intellectuals and minorities(5). Meanwhile Marcuse did not see any moral equivalence between the right and left, the right pushed for war and the left stood for peace, the right was the party of hate while the left was the party of “humanity”(5). He believed in democracy but the current form of it in America had not matured to a point in which all classes could benefit properly. Marcuse argued that if a portion of society is being repressed then it’s justifiable to use “repression and indoctrination” to allow the “subversive majority” to achieve the power it deserves. It was also argued that denying basic rights to those who advocate for conservative causes, or for policies he viewed as aggressive or discriminatory, and that true freedom of thought might require professors to indoctrinate their students, Marcuse said; "The ways should not be blocked [by] which a subversive majority could develop, and if they are blocked by organized repression and indoctrination, their reopening may require apparently un-democratic means. They would include the withdrawal of toleration of speech and assembly from groups and movements which promote aggressive policies, armament, chauvinism, discrimination on the grounds of race and religion, or which oppose the extension of public services, social security, medical care, etc. Moreover, the restoration of freedom of thought may necessitate new and rigid restrictions on teachings and practices in the educational institutions which, by their very methods and concepts, serve to enclose the mind within the established universe of discourse and behavior.(6)" The problem with repressive tolerance is there does not seem to be a social litmus test built into the theory in order to evaluate how much the oppressed, over time, have been liberated by liberating tolerance. Marcuse had an intention of a complete reversal of “power” but had not developed a method of preventing his new proletarian revolt from turning into the harsh ruling class it was trying to dismantle. After Repressive Tolerance was published in academia, humanity and social science departments began to develop their own theories in regard to power relationships between identity groups, examples include postmodernism and deconstructionism(7). This basic idea was planted in academia in the 60’s, it would remain there and give birth to offshoot theories and new fields of study. In 1989 Kimberly Crenshaw had developed her social theory of intersectionality. This was a framework used to understand how a persons social and political identity(sex, race, class, sexuality, gender etc.) combine to create unique models of discrimination and privilege(8). With this being said, intersectionality tries to reveal the invisible power relationships between classes. It is a tool used to identify and make possible adjustments in the supposed unfair allocations of power within businesses structures, societal institutions, government and even inter-personal relationships. Just like in Marxian doctrine, the capitalist is the bearer of unearned wealth, intersectionality has now found a method to identify, or possibly create more of this privileged class , but now the focus is on the grounds of the ethereal notion of power. In the view of Kimberle’ Crenshaw, the nature of these interlocking oppressions needed to be worked out. Always there is the sense that once they are unpicked then something wonderful might happen, though, as is common with utopians, the map of utopia is not included in the plan(9).
The Modern Socialist Dream Socialism, the economic implementation of communism, has done well at providing a foundational theory for the modern social justice movement. After the 2011 Occupy Wall Street Movement we began to see other oppressed and marginalized groups join in on the march toward the road to power. Something else also came into vogue during this time, a social aberration that required addressing, the social hysteria over fascism. Whether it’s a fight for economic, gender, racial inequality, or the correcting of a power imbalance, the roots of the struggle session is grounded in socialism or a form of it. The perspective of the Occupy movement and other adherents of intersectional theory will agree that, those who have the most of something have no right to claim it as there own, in spite of having earned it by skill or intellect.The wealth re-distribution principle was well and alive during these protests. The Occupy Wall Street protests began in New York, and eventually we saw the same movements manifest in Canada. These protests lead the way for more future social action and included more classes within the intersectional caste, not only lesbian and gay, but also transgender, queer and two spirit became part of the class struggle. The Occupy movement began in response to economic inequality in the states. This is when a new term to describe the modern day bourgeois came into the class consciousness, “the one percent” began to become popularized. The election of President Donald Trump began to trigger a hunt by activists for alleged fascists throughout all ranks of society. Just like current and past class struggles there was a specific focus on the business community and university and college campuses, however, nobody was safe during a purge. The explanation behind this accusation is far too longwinded, but this seems to be a simple tool used to diminish a counter revolutionary who espouses contradicting ideals. This may also be a method to denounce an allegedly privileged class member as a means to remove them from office and replace them with someone more sympathetic to the movements cause . The activist movement of the day seems to have a large focus on struggle, deconstruction and destabilization and just like class struggles of the past have never been actualized. They seem to be no more than a personal solipsistic dream. What keeps socialism alive then? The answer is the socialist dream, just as there is an American dream. And evidently, the socialist dream is one that survives all empirical refutation. No experimental argument, nor economical argument can send socialism to it’s grave(10) .

I present the 𝝅oneer Falchion, a Raspberry Pi Zero W based micro cyberdeck (or microdeck). Runner's First Cyberblade, or a \"Decker's Sidearm\" The backside. Note the data-quillions, recessed power switch, and hinge. Operating configuration. Easy charging port. I took inspiration in designing this from the Austro-Hungarian M1853 Pioneer’s Falchion. I had gotten the first inkling of an idea of a blade shape from the shape of the keyboard, and then went poking and asking around to find a blade with a somewhat similar shape. That’s what informed the shape of the hilt and the placement of the quillions in particular. The features include a micro-USB charging port on the hilt end, two USB-A “data-quillions”, a touchscreen display, and a wireless keyboard that folds on a hinge along the back of the “blade” into the operating position under the display. The power switch is accessible through a hole on the backside of the device. I designed and built it for the competition hosted here: https://www.cyberdeck.cafe/post/deck-builders-competition The gist of it is that we are holding a mini virtual maker faire, with a competition portion. The competition requires using a Raspberry Pi Zero (or Zero W for the wireless version) as the core of a cyberdeck that we designed in a limited amount of time, with a limited number and volume of 3D printed components, and including the required models and instructions as our entry. The winner gets their design printed in resin and shipped to them. The links to the models and other files can be found on my blog, here: https://technomancers-sanctum.blog/2020/09/25/%cf%80oneer-falchion/ This may end up being the first in a series of "Standard Runner's Constructs," and the instructions are written as such, in an in-universe style. The idea is that runners are trying to make sure their future teammates are properly equipped and educated. If you "can't find good help anymore," sometimes you've gotta train your own. Feel free to make your own. I’d love to see photos!
2020.09.25 22:33 kiwispacemarineA Course of Action Part 29 - Laws, Legislation and Board Meetings (Oh my!)
FirstPreviousNext United Nations Building, 2036 A.D. One Day Later. Captain Black stood at attention, waiting for Secretary-General Kain to speak. ‘Interim President,’ he thought to himself, ‘That’s what he is now.’ Black, along with several other members of Task Force Bravo, were in Kain’s office, wearing the dress uniforms of their former services. Black wondered what would happen to the Task Force when the war ended. Would it continue to exist as part of the U.N.S.C., or would it be disbanded, and the members sent back home. Privately, Black wouldn’t mind going back to his old life. He hadn’t heard someone use his proper name in normal conversation in months. Always, it had been on some kind of assignment, when there were people present who couldn’t know about his involvement in the secretive Special Forces unit. It was ironic, he thought, ‘My true identity and name has become an alias and my alias has become my name.’ He was snapped out of his introspective reflection by Kain getting up from his desk. “Members of Task Force Bravo,” he began, “You have been gathered here today to be rewarded for acts of courage, bravery and singular daring that go far and beyond the Call of Duty,” he paused solemnly. “Each of you will be rewarded according to your acts. I shall start with who is probably our most famous operative, Captain Black.” There was a polite smattering of applause as Black stepped forwards. He saluted the President, then shook the hand offered to him. “Captain Black,” Kain began, “You have led multiple successful raids deep within enemy territory. You have also proved instrumental in both the capture of enemy prisoners, and the unmasking of a traitor within our ranks.” Kain paused, more for dramatic effect than anything else. “For the acts listed, you are hereby promoted to Major,” Kain announced as the room broke out into more applause, this time more genuine. Reaching over to a small table that stood nearby, he picked up a set of rank pips. “Congratulations, Major,” he said, pinning the pips to Black’s uniform, “You’ve earned it.” ********************************************************************************** U.N. Security Council Chamber. Two Weeks Later. “…I must also report that the major weapons company have increased production on the ‘Enhanced’ models of the older fighter jet types,” Jerry Kinser was saying, “These include improved models of the MiG-25, MiG-29, F-15, F-16 and Eurofighter Typhoon, among others. Production on the ‘Simple’ tanks is also in full swing.” Secretary-General, now Interim President Kain grunted. “Never in all my years at the U.N. did I once think I would be happy to hear that,” he remarked, “What else is there?” “The Orbital Defence Grid has been increased by fifteen percent,” Jerry replied, “Previously civilian-affiliated factories have been converted to military purposes. Rationing is in effect in many countries. Also, world financial systems are rapidly being merged under the new United Nations Crisis Fund.” Kain nodded. “How are the people taking it?” he asked. Jerry consulted his notes. “On the whole, the population, while not happy with the decisions being made, understands them and is trying to adjust their lives to meet the new circumstances. However,” the aide sighed, “There have been instances of riots and protests in several countries. China has also refused to join the Coalition.” “That could be a problem in the future,” the French President, Jacques Dubois, mused, “We may find we’ll need China’s resources and military muscle in case things get dicey.” President Robinson shrugged. “Eh, they’ll come around soon enough,” he drawled pleasantly, “When they find that World Trade is being directly controlled by the U.N.C.F., they’ll have to join to keep their economy in shape.” “We hope so,” muttered Boris Cameron. “Now,” Kain said, “We should probably come to the heart of this meeting: Planning out the legislation and paperwork for this new position you’ve so kindly saddled me with.” “How do you mean?” asked Vladimir Putin. “Well,” Kain said, “I can think of two things off the top of my head: Term limits, and whether the position of Interim President (we really need to change that name) is a separate entity from Secretary-General. If they are separate, who’s to be the Secretary-General?” Chancellor Schmidt shifted uncomfortably in his seat. “I have … issues with the idea of one man holding both positions,” he said slowly, “I think that such an arrangement leaves the system vulnerable to exploitation.” “But it is just a temporary position,” Prime-Minister Cameron pointed out, “It shouldn’t matter if they’re held by the same person.” “Such is the cry of the tyrant, Mr. Cameron,” Schmidt countered, “It is always: ‘National Security’, or ‘a Temporary measure’ until the ‘Current Crisis has passed’”, he said, the air-quotes obvious in his inflection. “The Chancellor does raise a valid point,” Kain noted, “For we don’t know how long this war will drag on for. I may have to retire before the end of it,” he chuckled briefly, “And although I don’t have any dictatorial ambitions, who’s to say the next fellow doesn’t?” “Perhaps,” President Dubois chipped in, “We should just make the office of President of the Coalition an extra responsibility that the current Secretary-General holds in a time of crisis, like the current position.” Schmidt still looked uncomfortable with the arrangement, but he agreed to Dubois’ proposal. “It’s not ideal,” he said, “But I suppose we’ll iron out all the details later.” ********************************************************************************** Like Jerry’s report had indicated, the Earth was going into full-scale war production. Following President Kain’s declaration, conscription was swiftly re-introduced in many countries, as was rationing. Nations dusted off old weapons and re-activated moth-balled fighter jets and tanks. Factories that had previously produced cars, both wheeled and hovered, switched to making the new Mark III SPARTAN-IMP exoskeleton as well as ‘simple’ tanks and other armoured vehicles. Aviation factories were converted from manufacturing airliners to constructing military aircraft, be it dropships, VTOLS, transport planes or helicopters. Earth was ‘On the Warpath’, and nothing could stop them. ********************************************************************************** Moonbase Alpha Main Docking Bay, Moonbase Alpha, The Moon. 2036 A.D. The new Northrop-SpaceX Eagle-class transport freighter glided into the hangar bay, gently touching down on its four landing legs. Quite a few copyright claims had been infringed in the design of the craft, but no-one really cared. The hangar bay doors slid shut behind the craft and cranes began lowering from the ceiling. Colonel Straker was in his office, reviewing reports on the base’s combat readiness, when he received an alert on his computer. Tapping the screen, he read the notification. “Interesting,” he murmured, before picking up a telephone. Dialling a number, he leant back in his chair. “Hello, General Henderson?” he began, “Straker here. The first batch of F-41’s has arrived.” ********************************************************************************** The newly minted Major Black watched the unloading of the Starfighter-II’s keenly. Most of the aircraft had been removed from the Eagle and were being craned off to another part of the bay. He didn’t quite know why the fighters were being deployed to Moonbase; from what he understood, their primary function was to fight in atmosphere, with the space capability meaning that they could easily deploy from orbiting carriers. Still, the Major considered, they would bolster the base’s defence's considerably. He was interrupted by his phone ringing. Searching his pockets, he pulled the device out. The Major was wearing his trademark black service uniform, with a matching beret. Answering the phone, he put it to his ear. “Hello, Black speaking,” he said. “Black?” a familiar voice replied, “Colonel Straker here. We’re about to start the interrogation of the two captured Scourge officers, if you’d like to watch the proceedings?” “I’ll be there right away, sir,” Black replied. “Good man,” the Colonel responded, “Also, congratulations once again on your promotion. It’s been a long time coming.” “Thank you, sir,” the Major smiled, “I’ll be there now.”
2020.09.25 20:26 KevinPineappleKevin Pineapple's B.S. IT Review
Hey everyone! Following in the footsteps of many others--notably u/jwawa and u/wotanwolf, I'd like to offer my writeup on the BS IT program through WGU, and how I completed those classes. I completed it within 1 term, only transferring in 21 credits from completion of certs prior to my start at WGU. A little background about me: I work full-time as the sole IT analyst for a major healthcare company in their downtown office full-time M-F. Most of my time during waking hours was either work, study, or both permitting downtime. I also want to mention this: There have been several courses where I failed the OA, and had to retake it. That is not because the course itself was difficult, but rather I was under prepared and didn't take the time to slow down and comprehend it properly. I highly recommend both jwawa's and wotan's guide, as they were my motivators to succeed: https://www.reddit.com/WGU/comments/88nnpw/jwawas_it_course_notes/ (jwawa), https://www.reddit.com/WGU/comments/8izjot/wotans_bs_it_review/ (wotanwolf) In addition to their wonderful guides, I also used an excel spreadsheet made by u/berge472 located here: https://www.reddit.com/WGU/comments/62lb59/course_progress_tracke; I used this as a means of motivating myself over time, and to show how far I've come. Start date: 5/1/2020 End Date: 9/25/2020 My Courses
Introduction to IT (c182) - 05/01 - 05/02: "A mile wide and an inch deep" should be the motto for this class. If you have sufficient knowledge on computer hardware and best practices you can easily complete this in a day. Study-wise, I only went through the Pre-Assessment once, then went straight to the OA.
Critical Thinking and Logic (c168) - 05/05 - 05/05: Another fairly easy class, this goes over the general concepts of critical thinking, and does not go any further. I took the pre-assessment to see where I stood, and based off what I was weak in (was a few sections), I then read the course material. Afterwards I retook the PA, got a good score and then took the OA.
Introduction to Communication (c464) - 05/03 - 05/06: Fairly similar to c168 in terms of the course just generalizing concepts of communication, and the types of communicators. This class is the only one of it's kind (for my program) to require a video PA, in addition to the OA. I completed the OA before performing the PA which is split into 2 tasks: the first is a paper report on an academic topic of your choice, and the second task is a video recording going over that paper. Panopto was the system used to record myself. My advice here is to have 2 screens: 1 with a script and the other showing your video recording.
Applied Probability and Statistics (c955) - 05/06 - 05/10: This course wasn't too bad, I worked off of the areas I was weak in based off of the PA using the UCertify practice tests, and re-took the PA again and got a higher score. The PA and OA align closely together. For this and the other 2 math classes I solely used my Casio FX-CG50 (great calculator!)
Applied Algebra (c957) - 05/11 - 05/12: This course is alot easier if you're coming right out of c955 as you carry over some of the fundamentals easily. I used the practice exams in UCertify and took the PA before going for the OA. Fairly straight forward.
Finite Mathematics (c277) - 05/13 - 05/16: Boy do I really hate Truth Tables. Nothing I could find help cement the theory of it until I came across this beautiful person on YouTube that explained it for me to finally understand it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRMC-ttjhwM
Natural Science Lab (c683) - 05/19 - 05/19: OK this is hilariously easy. You need to write on a natural science experiment and observe the changes made introduced by your original hypothesis. An example is comparing the melting rate of ice between water, oil, and salt water. Again, very very easy.
English Composition II (c456) - 05/19 - 05/21: English is my favorite course of study, and I already had prior experience in writing literature papers so this went by easier for me. This course only has 2 PA's; The first task is to create an thesis statement and a bibliography using 8-10 sources in APA format. I used https://scholar.google.com/ to locate my articles, and https://www.citationmachine.net/apa/cite-a-website to quickly format my source websites into APA format, then paste them into Word. The 2nd task is the actual paper regarding your argument. At this point you're just reiterating what you stated from the 1st paper.
Integrated Physical Sciences (c165) - 05/22 - 05/25: This is the first (of many) OA that I failed, mostly attributed to my own hubris and believing I was ready when I really wasn't. For my 2nd attempt I went through the course material and did the knowledge checks, quizzes, and used the following Quizlet in Learn mode to make sure I was drilling it down: https://quizlet.com/376991990/integrated-physical-science-c165-wgu-flash-cards/
American Politics and the US Constitution (c963) - 05/26 - 05/30: I disliked the course material, was too dry for me to stay focused and keep my ADHD in check, so I discovered this amazing series called CrashCourse, that had a video playlist going over U.S. Government and Politics (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8dPuuaLjXtOfse2ncvffeelTrqvhrz8H)--best of all it was engaging! Highly recommend. This, in addition to the PA was my sole source of preparing for the OA.
Introduction to Humanities (c100) - 06/01 - 06/02: This course was fairly easy. The OA is slightly more difficult than the PA (pre-assessment) but still links up properly in what it's asking of you. It focuses heavily on the major themes throughout history and the figures in them. Know this, in addition to works of art and buildings and you'll be golden. The PA (Performance) is a report on a work of art or figure from a pre-determined list. *STRONG HINT* The classical period is well-documented ;)
Technical Communication (c768) - 06/03 - 06/04: This is the little brother to the Capstone, as it contains 2 PA's: The first task is to write up a request for proposal (RFP) for a company that implements a solution using technology. The second task is to then actually create the proposal itself. The rubric is your friend with this paper. Again, I used Google Scholar for my sources, and the citation machine website for APA formatting.
Emerging Technologies (c850) - 06/04 - 06/04: While I was waiting for my PA's in c768 to finish evaluating I started on this class. Compared to the previous class, this is a cake walk. This has 1 PA in which you propose (see a pattern?) an emerging technology as a solution to a fictional organization. Use the case study attached in the course to determine your method of proposal as there's many solutions to choose from based on the case study.
Cloud Foundations (c849) 06/8 - 06/10: The first of many certifications. UCertify was my only source of study material as this is the general concepts of cloud networking. CompTIA likes to make all their foundational certs a mile wide but an inch deep. Know the fundamentals and services (Iaas, SaaS, PaaS), the types of cloud (Private, Public, Hybrid, Community), and you'll be golden.
Data Management - Applications (c170) 06/17 - 06/20: Remember how I mentioned my dislike for databases? Well it showed here. I failed both of the OA's on the first go. My 2nd attempt I used UCertify, and drilled home the labs in the UCertify material. The labs in the material is the exact same as the Lab OA, save some name changes. I cannot stress this enough. The multiple choice OA was tough, but as long as you do the quizzes in UCertify you should be fine.
Spreadsheets (c268) - 06/22 - 06/23: Watch this YouTube video and enjoy that easy 100%. The OA is the exact (exact) same as the PA. Did I mention it's eerily similar?
Ethics in Technology (c961) - 06/24 - 06/25: This class boils down to "Is this legal or ethical?". Once you understand the distinction between the two and go through the PA, the OA will be an easy one.
Information Systems Management (c724) - 06/26 - 06/27: Similar to the above class, only it goes into the business side of IT. The PA, and UCertify quizzes are your friends.
Scripting and Programming - Foundations (c173) - 06/29 - 06/30: If you have any fundamental knowledge of scripting, this class can be done within 1 day. The UCertify practice test is a great tool to use to nail down some of the concepts in relation to programming.
Web Development Foundations (c779) 07/01 - 07/09: I failed the OA on the first go due to my lack of preparedness. On my 2nd attempt, I solely used the practice tests in UCertify and read through any chapters where I had gaps in knowledge.
Network and Security - Applications (c178) 07/13 - 07/25: This course is for the Security+ exam. For almost all of the certification exams I used sources outside of WGU. For this course, I used Professor Messer and several practice tests that you can find online for free.
Business of IT - Applications (c846) - 07/27 - 08/01: This is for the ITILv4 certification. I used the official ITILv4 app (Google Play StoreApple App Store) in order to pass this one.
User Interface Design (c773) - 08/04 - 08/08: This course is for the CIW - User Interface Designer certification exam. I followed jwawa's guide down to the end and was able to pass on my 1st attempt.
Organizational Behavior and Leadership (c484) - 08/10 - 08/11: If you have some experience and/or knowledge of how a company functions, this should be easy. I took the PA and used it as my source to improve in the areas needed. PA is somewhat similar to the OA. I encourage you to at least read a few chapters (it's dry unfortunately).
Web Development Applications (c777) - 08/12 - 08/16: Basic HTML knowledge is sufficient enough to pass. If you're new to HTML, use the UCertify material and definitely use the practice exam mastery mode to hone it in.
Business of IT - Project Management (c176) - 08/17 - 08/27: This course is for the CompTIA Project+ certification. I followed along to jwawa's guide for this course and was able to pass without an issue.
Principles of Management (c483) - 08/31 - 09/01: Fairly easy course, just go through the competency videos located in Course Tips and you'll be golden.
Linux Foundations (c851) - 09/02 - 09/19: I underestimated this course and failed on the first attempt by 1 question. On my 2nd attempt, I had a VM instance of Ubuntu ready, and followed along to everything (and I mean everything) that Sean Powell did in the UCertify videos. I also read chapters I struggled in and did the practice tests, and was able to pass on my 2nd attempt.
IT Capstone (c769) - 09/21 - 09/24: I honestly am not sure how I pulled this one off. I already had an idea in mind for my capstone back when I first enrolled into WGU as I had recently completed a project at work that fit this course perfectly. The first task is simply getting the topic approved by your mentor and submitting it. Task 2 is the proposal for the topic, and task 3 is the status-report after the project was completed. Task 2 took the longest out of the 3, and surprisingly task 3 was easy since you're cutting a lot of your work from 2 -> 3. I made sure to look at the Capstone Model and Excellence Archives as a reference for those that completed it in how they presented their reports.
WGU has been a great experience for me, and even now writing this out feels like a dream! There were days where I didn't want to keep going and take a day off, but I held true to my goal of getting it done; Even when I failed my OA's, I became more determined to succeed. My schedule has been roughly the same since I enrolled: I work 7:30 AM - 5 PM M - F, but wake up as early as 4 AM to get a head start on some course work. The only advice I can give is to breathe. There are going to be moments where you feel like you can't go on anymore, but I promise you, you can get to the other side and get that degree! Once again I want to thank u/wotanwolf and u/jwawa from the bottom of my heart: You guys inspired me to return to school, and to finish it within 1 term. Thank you guys.

[UPDATE] 2020 Model 3 isn't pulling any amps when plugged in Submitted September 25, 2020 at 11:28AM by hoky315 https://ift.tt/306Uj9x via /teslamotors ---- Content: original postAs mentioned in my original post, I had a mobile service appointment scheduled to check into why 2020 SR+ wouldn't charge. I received a call from Tesla Virtual Service team yesterday, and after looking at my car and seeing a few alarms they rescheduled me to a service center appointment.I dropped the car off this morning and got the diagnosis back that the Power Conversion System needs replaced:Parts Replaced or AddedPart QuantityASY,PCS,32A,1PH,MDL3(1135558-01-D) 1.0BREATHER, NITTO Z-PLUG-S(1108907-00-A) 2.0They are fixing it under warranty and gave me a Model S70D as loaner since they are keeping my car for a few days.Not going to lie, having the power conversion system of an electric car fail after only 9 months makes me a bit nervous. But I suppose all new cars can have random issues...
2020.09.25 15:53 jtjdpLong winded reply to the question of how the avg underground clandestinist can indeed score kilos of 3-methyl-NPP from domestic corporate R&D suppliers...at $7k per kg for a non regulated Precursor, are the greedy corporations gonna settle for droppin' a dime in the DEA jukebox? Economics 101
One tailor made strategy is to use one of many intermediaries. One of the original gangsters of the hobbyists' best friend (the clandestinists consigliere) middleman is ChemSavers. Theyve grown from a small ebay outfit of used lab surplus resellers to a warehouse of busy Precursor reshipping or often drop shipping (I've frequently tricked the otherwise more vigilant than most Alfa Aesar to ship to a residential address, dumb dumbs can't use Google maps, and also don't give a fuck). Or read my long rambling reply that was not meant to wander so far off topic. But I do hit a few points buried somewhere in there. Most corporate clients are extended a net 30 day invoiced "tradeline" and a surprisingly high percentage of small businesses often have to choose btwn the utility bill and Fisher Scientifics pocket book, they know they can fuck off Fisher indefinitely,as most unpaid invoices under 10k are written off and not even reported as unpaid to the business credit bureaus (it costs money to do things like that and lawyers to recoup the invoice and collections agencies etc...wallstreet is aokay w/ a quiet little unnoticed accounts receivable write off, it's factored into their business model. their clients don't pay and they're left holding the bag, that's just the way it goes for all wholesale distributors and traditional B2B goods and services. By putting down cash (plastic) upfront,you are their ideal customer. If u don't request a Corp credit account and agree to pay invoices upon shipment, you will fill out the same application but as soon as they run your card to see that you got the dough, they will have you sign a boilerplate intended use statement and at that point you can go balls to the wall and order 100 grams of norephedrine (for 4-methylaminorex) or regular ephedrine (before visiting the gay nightclub armed with GHB, crank, and ecstacy, make sure u bring Viagra lest you experience "crystal dick"). The onky thing the chem corps are required to report are list I Precursors and the name address and phone info they give belongs to some poor schmuck who lives in a nursing home in Boca. get a Green Dot card in the name of a senile 90 yr old and you'll be running ur business and ordering Precursors in the name of Casper. I have a few PayPal business accts that as of the past few yrs belong to dead geezers but PayPal makes sure to remind me that I am limited to transaction limits if only $250k per month. Oh and then you can get business prepaid debit cards in the imaginary names of your employees. I've use that many times sometimes with intentionally misspellings of my own name so as to jump ship on a $10k hospital bill,and then return to the same hospital and do it over and over. You get carded for cigarettes and 6 pack of Coors Light ,but they don't ask for a photo ID for your coronary bypass surgery. Dumb fuckers Unless it's a legally mandated industry like financial services and prone to money laundering or tax evasion, you can do all sorts of things without showing ID. buy a fucking rundown crack house. In cash.and the rubdown warehouse next door.BOGO bargain days in the rust belt urban ghetto Contact SAFC (now it may go under a different name as they've merged with Millipore. But they still have Sigma Aldrich Fine Chemical and any body can request a quitr. Keep it sjmkme and basic. Specify a deadline for a project and that you have some surplus grant funding that needs to be spent by the end of the year , state your minimum purity requirements in the low range (tech grade min 85% or even 80%) cuz purifying it is an easy sodium bisulfite wash and extraction. saving them the task of purifying it will save you $$$. Keep in mind 3Me NPP is a liquid, and bc of the longer shelf life and storage stability of the HCl salt, you can save yourself 25% or more requesting the HCl salt,which saves them the castle of extracting the base and then u can store it longer Without much worry of oxidation. regular NPP (the dirty tech grade "Tianamnen Tar" is what I nickname it) cleans up nice as well with same bisulfite. It does oxidize from an orange red to a darker brown over a few yrs,but much slower than the 3-methyl bc of the fact that NPP proper is a solid base. I would ask them for a quote on both the base and HCl salt. It's been a few ues (like over 5 yrs )and they've merged with Millipore since then ,but my old corporate acct from 2006 was "grandfathered in" and I still have all of my same contractual discounts,although they're hardly "discounts " more like 5% or 10% off , they aren't exactly known for Payless Shoe Source BOGO buy one precursor get one free. Or maybe I thats the wave of the furue,I can here the radio advertisement now "It's our annual List I Precursor Black Friday sales event at Fisher Sci! Buy a liter of propionic anhydride and get a liter of benzaldehyde on the house! Just pay our outrageous shipping/handling." Or maybe they could couple it with "Anthranilic Acid August" or "NPP November" and "Homebake Heroin for the Holidays, Buy One Get One on all Acetic Anhydride now through December 31st." Or the "Summer Safrole Spectacular: Savings,Rolling , Tripping, Raving." Or maybe the Eight Days of Ecstacy (for Chanukah): Piperonal, Safrole ,MDP2P, Your Wacker Oxidation Super Store, Know a Naughty Knovenegal Know-it-All Elf? Save the lump of coal or your kegel ball (both require you to buy petrochemical carbon offset credits), instead go with something natural: kosher benzaldehyde and nitromethane in a convenienly filled jar, placed in the dark confines of a stocking for a few weeks). Of course the P2NP and resulting speed will need to be consumed orally or injected to be "carbon neutral" smoking is not only wasteful and distasteful it's a well known Burger King Bounce House Gas and sort of makes you the antithesis of "Captain Planet" (if you recall watching that cartoon as a kid, back when TVs still had bunny ear VHF-UHF receivers b/c ur parents refused to pay for cable forcing us to go outside and entertain ourselves with chicanery involving rolls of toilet paper, quiet midnight tactical suburban insertion and the TeePee-ing of our most reviled disciplinarian teachers I've always thought Pink Floyd could do a reunion tour along with Lil John & the Eastside Boys for a collaboration tour called "Another Brick In the (Windows...) to the Wall, Til the Syringe Hits The Bathroom Stall" ("How can you eat your pudding if you can't (skeet skeet!) Your Meat...what!? okay!") (this is what goes thru my head when I see people wastefully smoking meth, if they made u plant a tree for every bowl of meth one smoked, they prolly wouldn't contribute much to the rates of meth use,but they could slow global warming...it'd be like Ralph Nader's wet dream ,or some Greenpeace Jizz bomb Rainbeau Warrior Fantasy.Environmentalist Fetishism : you have a roving band of tweakers all decked out in two dozen different headlamps and high lumen flashlights toiling with garden trowels and transplanting saplings like Johnny Appleseed meets Johnnie Need For Speed meets Amphetamine-fueled Ardent Arborists hiding in bushes and behind trees from imaginary hallucinations of CIA drones while planting hedgerows like hyperactive hedgehogs in a desperate attempt to grow foliage and camouflage themselves "Crankheads for Krebbs Cycle" or "Help A Tweaker Hug A Tree, Or even some adequate Shrubbery, So they Can Hide From the Imagined dragnet of Sheriff Deputy" (State Troopers can't see thru tree trunks...or can they?) Of course the expense of arming tweakers with night vision goggles, saplings and entrenching tools are the makings of a WWI reenactment and I don't see any insurer covering the liability for that 501(c) charity. But more realistic is to export The Invasive Curse of the Cotton Belt,the Bamboo of Boca Raton. The curse of Kudzu. One place that has plenty of room for the fast growing vine are the best steppes of Russia and Ukraine. Itd be a great alternative to making homemade Krokodil: "Cultivating Kudzu to Keep Kievan Kids Krokodil Free" Or Kudzu could be equally coopted like a tree hugger IED, import some Chechnyn terrorists, give them sacks of Kudzu seeds and set them loose on Crimea. Nothing says "Rootin 4 Putin" like a hotly disputed Territory turning terrorists into tree trimmers. When it comes to my despots,theres no disputin , nobody rubs my Raspberry quite like (Ras)Putin. see how clever I think I am when I ik actually just coming off as tweakin balls? Triazolam Tweak, fent flirt, junkie jerk, Sufent squirt, or 4-benzyloxytramadol Bert & Ernie, my current state of spun as a spider, doesn't make me a liar. sure, this Kyke may be higher than the avg kite, but that does not make the words of this eccentric Semite any less legit (although it does give one pause to question my common sense, which I've never claimed to have ,bc my brain is full of books and when I'm not reading or writing I'm in the studio like Vanilla Ice laying down crafty hooks while my DJ revolves it. For reals though: my brother and I (who rarely see eye to eye on much beyond our passion for homemade chicken pot pie) have collaborated quite a bit this summer and we've compiled some epic next gen "Sufent Meets Slim Shady on Ritalin" we call it "Of Ricin and Minithins" but it's also been described as "White Pickett Fence Hop" a form of suburban hip hop that combines my lyrical wordplay, his machine gun vocal style, my decades on the throne (that is,the stool behind a drum set) bit mostly his "impeccable iambic pentameter" and Shakespearean delivery. Together, we've recorded a EP of our latest lyrical rhythmic project with the working title of "Aural Sodomy, Suburban Lobotomy" which is gonna be part of a new lyrical electronic genre called "Watch Yo' Step or Stub Yo' Toe" (it's a politically incorrect version of Dub Step) Back to the question of 3-Methyl NPP, which btw is on the regular catalogue of some EU chem firms such as ABCR, Chemos and used to be on the regular catalogue of Alfa Aesar and TCI, as well as GFS but while they may not have it as part of their regular cstwlitue, it's a mere hoo skip and am email away from a corporate outsourced Bangladeshi customer sales rep (usually with a nerdy librarian type female who claims to be named Liz, Sarah or Joanne, but we all know that it's more like Cindi Chandashakar, bc you don't get email replies at midnight nor live customer support chat at 2am on a Sunday from a poor corporate drone at a call center in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Be confident. Be professional. Find a Pakistani web designer on Fiverr to make your faux front CRO domain such as "Sharon, Riggs, Heydrich, Durmos & LLP R&D.com" three pages with basic contact info,maybe a stock photo of some serious science types looking longingly into the eyes of a sep funnel, with the intensity that says "Ik wearing these safety goggles b/c I'm about to deep throat this Sep Phunnel and then get on my knees for the moneyshot.

2020.09.25 13:17 House_of_Suns/r/QOTSA Official Band of the Week 21: ALL THEM WITCHES
Let me ask you a question. If you haven’t listened to Kyuss, are you even a QotSA fan? I suppose it is possible. Some people can be Peter Gabriel fans without being Genesis fans, or Ozzy Osbourne fans without being Black Sabbath fans, or Audioslave fans without being fans of Soundgarden and Rage Against the Machine. And I am pretty sure that there are Foo Fighters fans out there who are not fans of Nirvana -- probably because Foo Fighters are a way better band than Nirvana. Yeah, I said it. Come at me. But QotSA without Kyuss? I can’t see it. Maybe I am biased because I just love the low desert sound. Heavy riffs, lots of fuzz ,and earthquake-inducing bass are my jam. That’s why I love Self-Titled so much and why I feel 18 A.D. is chronically underappreciated as a song, and it is an absolute crime that they don’t play it live. I know I am not alone in this. Kyuss were a genre defining band that created what we now call Stoner Rock. Bands like Valley of the Sun,King Buffalo,Truckfighters,Stonerror,Sleep,Clutch,Mother Engine,Mondo Generator,Duel, and Fu Manchu all continue to write and perform Stoner Rock today. If you haven’t taken a dive into this scene, I totally envy the fact that you get to experience this music for the first time. Today we are going to check out a great Stoner Rock band that just dropped a new album a few weeks ago. They have more fuzz than a five day backwoods fishing trip. They have bigger jams than Smucker’s, Welch’s, and Kraft combined. They will make your one-hitter hit a home run. You are gonna want to roll down the windows of your low riding caddy and drive all night through the desert. Yep, you are in for a treat. This week’s band is ALL THEM WITCHES. About Them You are familiar with the Hero’s journey, right? That is the literary trope where our protagonists leave their comfortable little world, are mentored through a series of increasing challenges, find themselves at a low point, overcome obstacles, and return home greater and wiser than before? As with every story of heroes, our group of adventurers from Nashville Tennessee went on a truly epic journey. Drummer Robby Staebler had just arrived in Nashville from Portland, Oregon and was looking for some buds to start a band. He had rolled up at his new home in the back of a moving van, because his mom had decided that he was just not good enough to ride up front. His dad was conspicuously absent. After meeting a sketchy male role model with a Smashmouth-esque chinstrap beard, he was forced by this would-be academic to enslave a small animal. He then ran away from home to engage in a series of escalating gladiatorial fights for money. Wait. Shit. That is the plot of Pokemon Emerald, not the story of All Them Witches. Damn free emulators. Such a massive time sink. Mudkip for the win. You are damn right I’m bringing back that meme. Where was I? I kinda got distracted there. Oh yeah. Robby Staebler was looking for a band. He met guitarist Ben McLeod in a bar (remember when we could meet people in bars?) and then met aspiring drama student Charles Michael Parks Jr. when he took a job at “a corporate hippie store”. Parks Jr. turned those theatre aspirations into being a great frontman and bass player. The band rounded out their membership with Allan Van Cleave, a friend of Staebler, on keys. All Them Witches took the inspiration for their name from the set-prop book entitled All of Them Witches in the 1968 Roman Polanski Spawn-of-Satan movie Rosemary’s Baby. Let’s get something else out of the way: Yes, I said Nashville Tennesee. The Buckle of the Bible Belt. The Protestant Vatican. The Athens of the South. The Hot Chicken Capital. Yes, the self-proclaimed Music City is perennially associated with Country music, Gospel music and, to a lesser extent, contemporary Christian Rock. There is a Jazz scene. There are active Barbershop groups. The city is the home of the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Hee Haw was shot there. It is a city that, until a few decades ago, still had strong ties to the Confederacy. How the hell did a Stoner Rock band start there? Quickly, that’s how. The band were officially formed in February of 2012 (remember when that year was supposed to be the end of the world? C’mon, Mayans, if you really meant 2020 why didn’t you just say 2020?) and released their first album, Our Mother Electricity, on December 6th, 2012. Being from Nashville, the album was of course released on the German heavy psych label Elektrohasch Schallplatten. So just so we’re clear: Stoner Rock was born in the California Desert and then adopted by a band from Tennessee and released on a German label. I just have one question: Where the fuck is Carmen Sandiego? To be fair, All Them Witches characterized their debut sound as being ‘psychedelta rock’...which kinda sounds like a knock off version of an X-Man. The album is full of heavy jams. Listeners can expect to hear the influence of the blues mixed with deep fuzz and highly compressed vocals. Until it Unwinds is over eight minutes of rolling swagger that will have you thinking about 50 Million Year Trip. Heavy/Like a Witch has some definite Stone Temple Pilots vibes and is a great opener. The true standout on the album is The Urn, a dark and twisted fable that is really the antithesis of everything one associates with music in the Bible Belt. The album was a declaration of war on everything cheery and pleasant to be found in the Music City, and a bold statement from a band finding its feet. The band were not entirely happy with the production on Our Mother Electricity. In order to assert themselves, they went ultra low-tech. The released the Extra Pleasant EP in July of 2013. It was recorded on a 4-track cassette tape using only two microphones. Production-wise, it is a step back - but when you listen to it on headphones, you can appreciate the raw talent. It is a weird low-fi follow up and almost like listening to a debut rather than the first album. Listening to this EP is like hearing a Pink Floyd cover band’s first original songs that have been mashed up with Clutch and recorded on an iPhone 4. Even with those limitations, tracks like Sludger will stay with you and are worth your time. While their first two releases had some modest success, All Them Witches really did not get widespread acclaim until the release of their second full album, Lightning at the Door, in late 2013. Every band that has ever released anything on Bandcamp wants to experience the kind of underground word-of-mouth sensation that this album generated. The album is part-concept, part-thematic and has narrative threads that tie it together (e.g. the two tracks The Marriage of Coyote Woman and The Death of Coyote Woman - clearly, not a happy ending for the titular character). If you loved Songs for the Deaf and Rated R, then this is the album that you are going to want to start with as an introduction to the band. It has some amazing tracks - Funeral for a Great Drunken Bird and When God Comes Back are great on their own - but it is best experienced as a complete album. Do yourself a favor: Find a great set of headphones and listen to it front to back. You’ll thank me. How do you follow up a concept album that gives you unforeseen popularity and access to a broader audience? Do you, say, create a dark follow-up to it, and find the title for that album in a lyric from a hidden track? Who the fuck would make a weird choice like that? All Them Witches took a different route and decided to instead channel their inner Beck. The Effervescent EP came out in June of 2014. There are only two songs, each clocking in at about 25 minutes long. Side A is Effervescent and Side B is Tnecsevreffe. The EP is a Rorschach blot of instrumental music in multiple movements that channels incredible musicality and allows you to superimpose your own meaning on it. It is like listening to Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin have a baby, if that baby was raised listening to coyotes howl and instrumental Kyuss tracks all mashed together on one continuous loop. Fans of the German band Mother Engine will hear definite parallels. The weird thing about Effervescent is its length: it is hard to think of it as an EP, because it is 50 minutes of music. But it has only two tracks, so it can’t really be an album...can it? Yes, before you start in on me, I know about Sleep’s Dopesmoker. That 2003 one-song album may also have influenced our boys from the Hee Haw city. So after playing around with longer and more intricate multiple-movement songs, it is no surprise that All Them Witches dropped a 57 minute ‘EP’ in 2015. A Sweet Release hit the airwaves on April 20. Yep, 4/20. No, that was not a coincidence. No, I’m not going to explain that to you. If you gotta ask, you’ll never know. Yes, if anyone doubted at all that this band was a Stoner Rock band, fuck all y’all, the release date is proof. Tracks on the EP range in length from almost 2 and a half minutes to over 24 minutes. It is a spacey, laid-back jam that is at times hypnotic and far-reaching, and equally urgent and immersive. I’m not saying that you need to be high to appreciate this EP. I’m just saying that listening to Interstate Bleach Party and Howdy Hoodee Slank in the right…mood ...can make you see the color Octarine. Lightning at the Door and Effervescent cemented All Them Witches as true underground masters of Stoner Rock. 2015’s Dying Surfer Meets His Maker saw them broaden their musical scope and refine their sound. The album (yes, it is an album this time) leans heavily into the Blues with layers of grunge and psychedelia and celtic strings and even harmonicas. (Side note: the last time I heard harmonicas used in Stoner Rock was never. So good on them. I will say this: the hook brings you back.) All these influences were mixed in one big bowl and smoked out the top of a giant bong for full effect. It is at the same time a more technical and more mellow album. Stand out tracks on the album are the hard hitting Dirt Preachers and El Centro and This is Where it Falls Apart. All Them Witches found themselves touring the small club circuit and then playing bigger and bigger stages. They got invited to festivals like Bonnaroo and were greeted by enthusiastic fans (and clouds of fragrant haze). There is nothing like performing live to hone a band’s edge. By the time Sleeping Through the War dropped in 2017, the boys had been together, touring and recording, for five years. The album is tightly crafted by a tight band. There are even guest vocalists to add texture and harmony to the songs. Less mellow than its predecessor, the album roars right from the opening track - Bulls - through to the closing track, Guess I’ll Go Live On The Internet. 3-5-7 is probably one of the best Stoner Rock tracks you will come across. And when you recognize the tonal mirroring of Am I Going Up with Alabaster, you feel smarter than you actually are. Lots of albums have made me bang my head; very few have made me stop and recognize the musical structure that underpins the melody. That is Tool-level composition right there. Long story short: this is an album put out by a band in its prime and it does not disappoint. If you remember what happened in English class, what follows the apotheosis for the main character is the falling action or denouement. All Them Witches had peaked with Sleeping Through the War and had nowhere to go but down. The 2018 Lost and Found EP was four (comparatively) short covers and remixes that seemed more like leftovers than an actual meal. Sure, leftovers can be tasty, but All Them Witches fans were used to getting new and better breakfasts, luncheons and dinners and instead got last Tuesday’s reheated bean burrito. Which is fine, if you dig burritos, but it is still not as good as a nice, juicy steak. Goddam, is anyone else craving a meal? Why is it so smoky in here, and why do I want to eat burritos and Doritos? Hehe. Dorito. Burrito. Fuck. I need to focus. Moving on. Any fan of the band could tell that something was up, and that Lost and Found was at best a B-Side. It soon became evident that something really was up. Keyboardist (and part-time violinist) Allan Van Cleave was out of the band. This left a gigantic Ray Manzarek-esque hole in the band’s sound. The breakup was not a good one, and left some scars. Van Cleave was replaced by Jonathan Draper, and the band released the album ATW in Sept of 2018. Sonically, the album is sound, but seems to lack the spark of greatness that was in everything prior to Lost and Found. The technical skills are there - Draper knows his way around a keyboard, and that is clearly evident on Fishbelly 86 Onions - but it kinda (IMHO) sounds more like an amazing All Them Witches cover album than an actual effort by the band. It is kinda like Bryan Cranston dressing up in a Walter White mask. It is super close to previous efforts but just not the same, somehow. 1st vs. 2nd is a jam and so is Diamond, and the album has an unrelenting energy, but it is just a bit off the mark. The band must have felt something similar. Draper was turfed from the group just a month after ATW dropped. Instead of trying to recreate the four member sound that had anchored them since John Cusak and Amanda Peet’s landmark film, they decided to choose a new direction entirely. When bands shuffle their lineup, it tends to be adding members (like our very own ancient monarchs) or replacing members. Very few bands successfully delete members. Well, OK, that band from Liverpool did successfully delete Stuart Sutcliffe from its lineup and they went on to do alright. Genesis made a successful transition from a 4-piece to a 3-piece when Peter Gabriel left. Oasis got 100% better when Liam Gallagher and his ego both quit. But losing an integral part of your sound - and the keyboards were central in so many songs - would be a tough transition. The band’s fanbase-not-so secretly worried that the lack of keyboardist would spell the end. Thankfully, we were wrong. All Them Witches took that leap. Digging into their nomenclature and lore, they released a single as a three-piece band on Halloween of 2019. 1X1 is an angry, powerful Stoner Rock jam with a video that is an homage to Jesus Christ Pose. It is a Kyuss-meets-Tool-meets-Led Zeppelin-at-a-Black-Sabbath-concert song that made everyone simultaneously applaud and exhale. They were back. The new LP Nothing as the Ideal just dropped on September 4th, 2020. It is a leaner, meaner iteration of the band that seems to have lost no momentum. Everything resonates with power.Saturnine and Iron Jaw evokes Tony Iommi riffage. The Children of Coyote Women is a direct callback to the album Lightning at the Door. 41 is a thumping tune and Enemy of my Enemy is a relentless sonic attack. But most importantly, we get to see All Them Witches evolve as a band but hang on to the core of their sound. You’re never going to hear this band on your local top 40 radio station. You might catch them on College radio, if the DJ is cool enough. Like most great music nowadays, you have to go looking to find it. But when you do find it, what an amazing experience it can be. So now you have completed your Hero’s Journey (Twist! It turns out that YOU were the hero all along!) According to the trope, you are now older and wiser because you have ventured out of your comfortable little world. Now prove me right, hero. Go listen and awaken your inner stoner. And bring me some goddamn Doritos. Cool Ranch for the win. Links to QOTSA Josh has included All Them Witches on The Alligator Hour and is known to be a fan of the band. A recent review of Nothing as the Ideal stated that Charles Michael Parks Jr.’s voice was “Fantastic...like a bassier Josh Homme”. More importantly, All Them Witches are a Stoner Rock band...and Josh literally invented the genre. It is clear that while the band has grown and evolved and are taking themselves to new places, their music has been inspired by that downtuned, low desert Kyuss groove.
