The Government Popped In To Help

2020.09.06 03:04 Jersey908559 The Government Popped In To Help

From My blog, Jersey On The Fly Authored By me, Jersey (AKA Danielle Elizabeth) @ 2020 All Rights Reserved
I lost my job. I worked in a sheltered workshop in Central California. Somewhere around the end of '19 or the beginning of '20, case managers began telling us clients that California laws had changed so that sheltered workshops were now required to pay client employees federal minimum wage, whereas before they were exempt from having to do so. We were being warned that "at some point", our workshop along with most of the workshops in California, would close. But it was said in the context of a year or two down the road, and they were rolling out new changes designed to help us better secure jobs in our community - supposedly. The workshop was beginning to transition from a traditional work shelter format to Job seeking / job coaching format. But we were still working and actually had more work and contracts then we had had in at least a year. More work meant bigger paychecks. Sure it was well under minimum wage and one couldn't support themselves on said wages. But most of us receive SSI or SSDI along with other financial assistance that support us - barely. Our megor earnings were spending money that a life having to be supported by the government doesn't afford. Just enough to be able to grab a burger, go out with friends or indulge a hobby. And we were starting to do more of that because of course we were working more and thus making more. We were humming right along!
And then, like everything else towards the end of the first quarter of 2020, coronavirus…
By the end of February beginning of March all hell started to break loose as the first cases of coronavirus in California were popping up. As a Conservative Constitutionalist,, I was very concerned about "social distancing." One of the biggest signs of a socialist or communist country is when a government controls the every movement of it's people. My co-workers were of course talking about the virus and getting scared, but not caring for an argument, I kept my opinions to myself as I did with most of the political chatter at work because working was more important to me than being right. By the second week of March, staff was assigning seating arrangements both in the work area and cafeteria. and I was resentful that my movements were starting to be dictated to me. In addition to my political beliefs, Americans with disabilities are still widely, in 2020, viewed as not being able to make critical decisions and take total personal responsibility for those decisions, so someone of authority must step in and make those decisions for them. Often very assertive with a wicked temper when such views are projected on me, (you will never hear me I am perfect or even kind),I was REALLY struggling with keeping myself in check at work. I knew there was too much fear going around and again,working was more important to me than being right.
On Friday, March 20th, I arrived at work and was approached by staff, as they were now wanting to hear from clients on what their thoughts were on everything that was going on. In a good mood and not feeling that staff was looking for anything more than honest feedback, (which actually impressed me), we had a conversation I was very pleased with. I was asked if I had any concerns over coronavirus, and I shared I was more concerned with what was happening politically around coronavirus than than I was with the virus itself. I was asked if I was comfortable continuing to coming to work and I said "Uh-huh…" I was asked how I felt about the social distancing measures in place, and I answered they were a current source of frustration for me, but I knew it was what it was and was doing my best to just go along and get along. I was asked how I would feel if the workshop temporarily closed. This was something I had dreaded. For one particular reason. Remember, all employees in a workshop are NOT created equal. Staff receives a regular salary that is at least hourly if not just a guaranteed fixed amount. Clients were paid only if their group was assigned work that day and then only for the amount of work completed correctly. So while staff could be assigned work to do at home, clients couldn't. In a nutshell, staff would still get a paycheck, but clients would not. To be clear and fair, the case managers and supervisors had NO control over this and these were higher up policies. So my answer on that question was my preference was to stay working, but in the event of a temporary closure, I felt that if staff continued to be paid, then so should clients. The closure would be no more the client's fault than staff's. After making it clear that I understood that these decisions were higher up decisions and not workshop staff, I said exactly as follows. "Look, we all know that 95% of the clients are simply not cognitively able to process that staff continues to get paid while clients do not. Not only are the hire ups aware of this, THEY BANK ON IT! And that's not ok." I was commended for advocating my peers and sent on my way. My group completed the work we had by lunch. Since I live independently and use public transportation instead of a community provided door-to-door bus, I left after lunch at 1pm, spent the afternoon running errands and got home around 5-ish to find a voicemail time stamped 1:30-ish from my case manager. The higher ups had made the decision to shut the workshop down until April 15th. So staff never had a chance to do anything with the feedback they gathered. California issued the shelter in place order at the same time and by the end of our first week of being on shut down, the whole country was shut down.
At first I decided not to let a good crisis go to waste and started applying at various retail places that were deemed essential for stock clerk positions. I even got called for an interview. I had been applying for jobs in the community on and off for several yeàrs. Truth is, I look pretty damn good on paper as a candidate. But even though I also interview very well in face to face meetings, mine is a face that becomes contorted when speaking and I have a speech impediment that is slurred and garbled, making it hard to understand me at least at first. Add to that I show up in a wheelchair. And we haven't even gotten to the part yet where I do things at a much slower rate of speed and usually cannot perform a task to EXACTLY the same as everyone else's looks. Oh, did I mention I'm nearing 50 years of age? How many people with this description do you encounter in a work setting where you are either conducting some business or are a co-worker of theirs? How many people with the above description are your children's teachers or teacher's aids? How many do you see as greeters at Walmart? How many do you see as receptionists when you walk in a lobby? Even though The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 requires an employer to make reasonable accommodations and says an employer cannot deny a person a job based on disability alone, employers are not hiring people with very obvious disabilities. Whether they think customers will be turned off at the sight of obvious disabilities or they don't want to risk perceived legal liabilities, they don't want us as employees. I have yet to be hired or even be offered a try out position, which I would gladly take just to have a chance. Working in a workshop was the last thing I wanted to do. I finally agreed to do so until I could finally find a job in the community. But I finally had to be honest with myself about what the chances of that really were. If I couldn't even get hired at a time when essential businesses were desperate for extra help and were going on hiring sprees, what were really the chances I would be hired in the community ever?
Pretty quick the first national reopening date was April 30th, so I knew we wouldn't be going back on the 15th. Sure enough, we were pushed back to the 30th. But I started having this nagging suspicion in the back of my head. If the workshop was having to fold at some point anyway, would we ever reopen at all? On April 28th, I got another email from my case manager that the workshop was now closed until further notice. My spirit sank and I was sure I knew what was coming. But maybe I didn't after all! The work group supervisors had been assigned the job of calling clients each week to make sure the clients were ok. On May 13th, I received a call from a supervisor saying they were looking at reopening very soon and read us a series of questions to make sure we were healthy, did we feel ready to go back to work, and read us the procedures that would now be in place. So I was wrong! We were going back to work after all! My spirit soared! Then, exactly one week later, on May 20th, I got a call from my case manager. The workshop was not reopening. I was now told that the workshop was going to have to shut it's doors in September anyways because of the new laws, so they decided it wasn't worth reopening for the summer. This was the first time I ever heard that there was an actual closing plan with an actual date in place. My spirit crashed and my tempor soared. I managed to muster at least a semi calm "I can't have this conversation anymore right now.", and hung up.
When I first was first told of our workshop shutting down due to coronavirus, I was assured we would still receive paychecks. (Remember, I had pointed out the inequality of staff continuing to get paid during a shut down if clients did not.) We were paid twice monthly, the first pay period was from the 1st to the 15th, for which we would receive payment on the 25th, and the second from the 16th to the 30th, for which we received payment on the 10th. On March 25, 2020, we received a check for the work we had done from March 1st to the 15th. On April 10th, we were paid for the work we had done from March 16th to the 20th, for the last days we actually worked for a total of four days out of a fifteen day pay cycle. To my knowledge, there were no more payments to clients after April 10th. So as far as I can tell, we were only ever paid what we we're already owed. Meanwhile, case managers are still case managing with group supervisors helping to fill in the cracks. Damn well they're still getting paid something even if at reduced wages. (Although I personally question whether staff would do all the work they're doing for anything less than before the shut down.) Also, the agency that oversees the workshop is what I will call an "B" agency. A "B" agency, in this case the workshop, can't hire disabled employees off the street. Clients have to be referred to a B-angency by an A-agency. The A-agency pays the B-agency "X" amount for supplying the workshop services. So considering each client comes complete with a paid contract, I ask would it have had not been possible to continue to pay the clients even just a quarter of what they would usually get paid as a good faith gesture? And while I'm raising questions with my former employer, how was it, that one week clients received calls that the workshop would be opening very soon and exactly one week later çlients received calls saying the workshop was now permanently closed? Somewhere in the chain of command, someone knew about both phone calls! How did this happen and why? The fact that the decisions were made and that everything played out the way that it did was nothing short of cruel and dare I say malicious?! But that question will more than likely never be publicly answered with no one held accountable for such a fist in the face.
To be clear, our workshop wasn't closed permanently as a result of coronavirus. We were closed permanently because of changes to California State laws. California's Fair Employment And Housing Act states that all employees must be paid at least Federal minimum wage, but there was a loophole saying that if an employer had a special license to operate such as a sheltered workshop, they were exempt from having to do so. What they did was ammend the act with a new stipulation known as AB 488, which says that a employee may now sue an employer with said special license for any type of perceived discrimination or harassment based on a never-ending list of social groups, including people with disabilities. The bill, as far as I can tell, does not expressly say that a sheltered workshop MUST pay it's employees (clients) at least Federal minimum wage, but does say an employee who is a client can now sue a sheltered workshop for ANY form of discrimination which would include not paying clients minimum while paying staff above minimum wage.
And at face value, it seems like the right and just thing to do. But here's where this logic fails. It ignores the fact that as I said at the beginning, most client employees receive other types of income including SSDI/SSA, food stamps, housing vouchers and Medi-Caid/Medi-Care. All of these financial aids have strict income restrictions. For instance, if you receive SSDI and Medi-Caid, (known as Medi-Cal in California,) you cannot have more than $2,000 in assets. Assets include your car, jewelry, a savings account, a checking account and an income for a job. Making minimum wage has the very real potential to put those financial aids in jeopardy. And just because you exceed the asset restrictions does not mean you are able to fully support yourself on a regular basis. For one thing, without a housing voucher, rents double if not triple. And one would also lose their health coverage. I realize many able-bodied able-minded people may be going "So what? If they're able to work and support themselves then they should." The problem is that many of us have disabilities that limit how long we can work on any given day as well as if we're able to consistently work even four hours a day five days a week. A sheltered workshop allowed us the flexibility we needed in a work setting to be able to hold down a job.
Not only that, just because the government makes a law saying an employer in California MUST pay an employee at least "X" amount, does not mean an employer of any kind has the resources to be able to do so. That's why many businesses now have kiosks and self check-outs, because they can't afford to pay people to be there. It's also why many companies are permanently closing their doors.
My co-workers and I had a good thing going. We had the dignity of having a job and getting paid for the work we did. We had a little bit of spending money to be able to enjoy our lives just a little bit more. And then the politicians decided my co-workers and I didn't know how to make decisions about our own lives and barged in to fix what really wasn't broken. President Reagan once said the nine most dangerous words in the English language are, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." How true that is. The government stepped in under the guise of looking out for those THEY decided couldn't look out for themselves. But really, they were just looking out for their bottom line - votes. If they had truly cared for Citizens of California with disabilities who were employed at sheltered workshops, they would have looked at everything I just wrote about above and left well enough alone. But it looked and sounded too good to pass up. So they passed AB 488. To hell with the consequences! So now I and about 50 of my co-workers have lost our jobs. And in addition to our disabilities, many of us are in or near our fifties with no real job history. Employers are not impressed with someone who worked in a sheltered workshop. most of us, will never work and earn a paycheck ever again. Thanks, Sacramento. You shouldn't have… No, really.

2020.07.21 19:46 SteamedSpy4 [SECRET] SSN-20

Program Outline
With two submarine squadrons inactive and two more squadrons still operating obsolescent vessels, the submarine fleet is the next component of the Naval National Guard that needs addressing. The Virginia Block VI, or SSN-20 San Diego-class attack submarine, will be a heavily modified derivative of the class integrating new UUV capabilities and optimizing for indirect engagements. Vessels of the class will be named after cities of the Sierra Republic, with one exception. SNGS Plains will be named after Plains, Georgia, the hometown of Jimmy Carter, in honor of the 141 crew lost in the Jimmy Carter disaster.
Design Overview
The San Diego-class attack submarines will be, essentially, Virginia Block V submarines with a hull extension for a UUV bay and two additional Virginia Payload Tubes replacing the twelve specialized Tomahawk VLS cells. The UUVs will come in two main varieties: the Mk61 Proteus and the Mk64 Bluefin. New communications systems will enable revolutionary command-and-control capabilities for these drones to enable standoff submarine warfare, while the missile payload will compensate for the quickly-approaching retirement of the Ohio-class attack submarines. A few minor upgrades to weaponry and defenses will also be integrated, and the upgrades will take the opportunity to swap the S9G reactor for the more modern S1A. A modified S1B, the S1A reactor has been selected as the more advanced option given the need to replace the reactor anyway, and will offer improved power output to recharge onboard UUVs and a power core lasting the life of the hull.
Drone Systems
Although the Mk61 Proteus is not a new drone, it is not particularly advanced, either. The Proteus UUV is essentially an off-the-shelf system, and given the inability of submarines to communicate underwater without position-compromising audio transmissions, the Proteus is essentially a fire-and-forget system. Although the UUV’s search-and-surface capabilities are still a useful asset to the surface fleet, they don’t do quite as much for the subsurface fleet. The San Diego-class attack submarines will therefore integrate a laser-based optical communications system to enable silent if short-range communications with deployed drones. The Mk61 Mod 1 Proteus drone will be upgraded with this new feature in mind, and will also feature two Mk65 CRAW torpedoes to hunt and kill enemy UUVs. The Mk64 Bluefin drone will be designed to take fuller advantage of the new command-and-control capability, carrying one heavy torpedo in addition to its own sonar. Alternatively, the Bluefin can be used to deploy the Mk60 CAPTOR mine, or up to four Mk65 mini-torpedoes. Each San Diego-class submarine will carry sixteen Mk61 Mod 1 Proteus drones and twelve Mk64 Bluefin drones.
Weapons Systems
Although the Mk65 CRAW mini-torpedo is useful for counter-UUV and mine-clearing operations, its main function lies in its ability to counter enemy torpedoes. The Mk65 torpedo will be integrated into six tubes on the hull of the submarine, four fore and two aft, to counter incoming enemy torpedoes once detected.
Regarding missiles, the San Diego class will feature six Virginia Payload Tubes, sufficient to deploy most munitions. Mk41-class munitions like the Tomahawk can carried seven to a tube, while larger Mk57-class munitions like the RGM-202 Hacksaw can be carried three to a tube.

R&D
GD NASSCO will be contracted to build multiple new submarine docks to accommodate both the expanded current construction order and potential export orders. Maximum capacity is intended to rest at three hulls delivered annually, with one hull reserved for export capacity and the second alternating between SSN-20 use and the proposed Columbia buy. Two vessels will be delivered annually for the first three years to fill out the ranks of the SSN force, before production moves to a lower-rate replacement order. The SSN-20 program will be a decidedly long-term project, with the final vessel being delivered over a decade after the start of the program, and is expected to cost five billion dollars in development funds over that timeline.
The SSN-20 program will itself be public, although details will remain classified.

2020.07.20 15:06 ZandrickEllison The results are in for: LEAST Valuable Player

The NBA league office announced that all awards will be officially based on play PRIOR to the bubble. With that, the cases are locked, the campaigns are closed, and the voting will begin.
While the media may focus on the MVP award and other prestigious honors, reddit has the distinct honor of awarding the LVP. The LEAST Valuable Player. It's a tradition that dates back to 2016-17, when aging Indiana SG Monta Ellis won the inaugural trophy and then promptly disappeared from the NBA forever. In 2017-18, Minnesota SG Jamal Crawford won the (dis)honor with some incredibly bad defensive numbers. Last season, New Orleans SF Solomon Hill won LVP by helping to sink a drowning team and accelerating Anthony Davis' decision to fly the coop.
Before we announce this year's winner, let's review the criteria and caveats:
--- Obviously, the worst players in the league are the ones who sit at the end of the bench and don't get any playing time. However, this award focuses on players who log a decent amount of minutes and consequently affected their team's play the most. Simply put: the more you play, the more damage you can do.
--- And that actual "damage" is important. If you're on a tanking team, no one cares about your poor play; it may even be a positive. I'm also ignoring young players (under 21) who are still developing and can't be expected to be solid players yet.
--- Similarly, we don't want to judge players within the context of their salary any more than the actual MVP does. We also do not weigh in injuries either. For example, the Wizards would have a hard time competing with John Wall on the sidelines (0 games played, $32M in salary), but we want to focus on players' on-court performance instead.
dishonorable mentions
PG Mike Conley, Utah: 28.6 minutes per game, -0.80 RPM
We're using Mike Conley to reiterate that the LVP does NOT factor salary into the equation any more than the MVP does. But if it did, Mike Conley and his $33M salary may be in trouble.
It was a disastrous start to the season for Conley. Playing in a new role as a second fiddle to another guard, he could never find his groove. His assists plummeted (down to 4.3 per game), his free-throw attempts cut in half (from 5.8 to 2.9), and he only shot 42.9% from two-point range. That said, he still shot pretty well from 3 (37.6%) and played OK defense, keeping him off our official ballot.
SF Miles Bridges, Charlotte: 30.7 minutes per game, -2.68 RPM
Like Mike Conley, Miles Bridges seems like a great guy whom you'd hate to criticize. Alas, that's our exercise here. Caught in between positions, Bridges hasn't been able to figure out his rhythm on offense in the NBA either. He hasn't shot well (33% from three, 48.6% from two) and doesn't get to the line enough (2.0 FTA) to make up for it. The advanced stats get even worse from there (although to be fair, they get dragged down by playing in a bad starting lineup.)
Fortunately for him, Bridges is spared by his youth. At 22, he's technically over our "21 year old" threshold, but it still feels unfair to pick on his growing pains as a sophomore. Perhaps in time, he can find a role that can take advantage of his athleticism and talent. But be warned: the clock is ticking. We're taking the kid gloves off soon. Bridges and fellow analytics-allergic Kevin Knox (-7.7 RPM!) will be entering Year 3 next season and will need to step their games up to avoid LVP discussion.
SF Kyle Kuzma, L.A. Lakers: 24.6 minutes per game, -0.74 RPM
Kyle Kuzma can score if need be, but his skill set never made him a natural fit to play third banana to superstars like LeBron James and Anthony Davis. He's not a 3+D player -- he's more of a no-3 (30% this year) no-D player. At the same time, the LVP is about negative impact, and it's hard to find much of consequence here. After all, the Lakers still finished with the # 1 record in the West. Kuzma struggling to find his way is like a tree falling in the woods or a person farting in an empty elevator – ultimately it didn't matter.
SF Andre Iguodala, Memphis/Miami
It feels like ancient history now, but this past offseason, the Memphis Grizzlies acquired Andre Iguodala in a trade (under the presumption he may be dealt again.) According to official reports, Iguodala and the Grizzlies MUTUALLY decided that he wouldn't play for Memphis and wouldn't even report to the team in the meantime. Okay. Fine. We'll go along with that.
Still, that situation leaves a sour taste in the LVP headquarters. Memphis turned out to be better than expected, and could have used an extra rotational player. And even if Iguodala wouldn't have helped much on the court, he could have been a valuable mentor for their young kids. That's the least you can expect for a nice $15M in salary.
our official top 5 LVP ballot
(5) PF Anthony Tolliver (POR, SAC, MEM): 15.6 minutes per game, -3.60 RPM
I've always had a soft spot for the wise ol' owl, Anthony Tolliver. He's reportedly a great teammate and locker room presence. He also started to develop into an effective stretch four towards the end of this career.
But alas, the end of his career may have snuck up on us sooner than we expected. Tolliver disappointed for Minnesota last season, and completely flopped in his return to Portland. At age 34, he doesn't seem to be a viable rotation player anymore. He didn't play quite enough to merit LVP, but he still played more than he should have.
There's a chance Tolliver comes back next year to serve as a veteran mentor and pseudo-assistant coach somewhere, but it's more likely that he retires. If he does, he'll have played for 10 different franchises in his not-so-illustrious but very respectable career.
(4) SG Bryn Forbes, San Antonio: 25.1 minutes per game, -0.95 RPM
The NBA is all about shooting these days, and Bryn Forbes can shoot. He's hit an even 40.0% from three during his NBA career so far, and wasn't too far removed from that this season with 38.8% on 6.0 attempts per game. As a result, his true shooting percentage (57%) was above average. The Spurs lacked spacers, and Forbes fit that bill.
So what's the problem...? Turns out, basketball is more than a halfcourt game. And whenever the ball crosses that pesky midcourt line, Bryn Forbes starts to become a liability.
At only 6'3", Forbes is undersized to play the SG position, which is where the Spurs played him 74% of the time (according to basketball-reference.) Partly due to those athletic limitations, he only registered 0.5 steals per game, and blocked a grand total of 0 shots in his 1579 minutes of action. The advanced stats get ugly; Forbes ranks near the bottom at his position in DRPM, DBPM, all the alphabet formulas that you can cook up.
At the end of the day, LVP is about negative impact, and there's plenty here. Forbes is not a bad player in a vacuum, but he did not help the Spurs this year. In fact, their undersized lineup is a big reason why they're struggling so much on defense (25th in the NBA). As a direct result, they're on track to miss the playoffs for the first time in decades.
(3) SF Mario Hezonja, Portland: 16.3 minutes per game, -2.79 RPM
During the entire run of the Damian Lillard - C.J. McCollum era, Portland has struggled to figure out their wing rotation. That would be tested even more this season, with familiar faces like Moe Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu, and Evan Turner slipping out the door. The trials and tribulations kept coming like Damian Lillard was Job, as injuries ravaged the Blazers' new depth chart. The team didn't need a star to emerge at forward -- but they needed somebody. Anybody.
In theory, that player should have been Mario Hezonja, a former lottery pick and a live body with good athleticism and size at 6'8". Signed this summer for a modest price ($1.7M), Hezonja had the chance to jumpstart his NBA career with a major opportunity on the team. Instead, he flopped like Marcus Smart taking a phantom elbow.
Hezonja's biggest problem is that, at age 25, he still hasn't found his feel on the court. He's not a good shooter (32.8% from three), and doesn't use his athleticism to find his way to the line (1.1 attempts per game.) He was a non-factor (5 PPG, 3 RPG) on a team that desperately needed him to step up. In fact, the Blazers were so desperate for help that they not only signed Carmelo Anthony, but they played him over 32 minutes a game.
Again, we see a real "LVP" candidacy here with a direct effect on the standings. The Blazers' getting a big fat nothing from Hezonja was a major part of their struggle to get to .500 this season.
(2) C Dewayne Dedmon, SAC/ATL: 17.6 minutes per game, -2.51 RPM
We're not supposed to factor in salaries into this equation, but Dewayne Dedmon's situation merits a mention for context. The Sacramento Kings signed the big man to a head-scratching 3-year, $40M deal this summer (seriously.) Clearly, GM Vlade Divac thought his young Kings were only a few veterans away from making the playoffs, bringing in (and over-paying) Dedmon, Cory Joseph, and Trevor Ariza.
Among the three, Dedmon turned out to be the most disappointing for several reasons. He didn't play well to start the season, and got usurped in the rotation by underrated Richaun Holmes. Rather than suck it up, take a deep breath, and take a relaxing dive in his new Scrooge McDuck money pool, Dedmon started to whine and complain and push for a trade. For a team that was struggling, Dedmon's headache became the last thing they needed. Ultimately, they ditched him back to where he came from in Atlanta.
Now, being difficult and being a prima donna isn't enough to get you LVP honors. You have to stink on the court as well. And sure enough, Dedmon started to check those boxes. Billed as a stretch five after hitting some threes in Atlanta, Dedmon lost his shot in the SMF airport baggage claim. He shot only 19.7% from three for the Kings, registering a 47.3% true shooting percentage on the season. His defense is OK, but it's not good enough make up for his poor offensive play. He's not bad enough to get LVP, but he hurt his team this year.
(1) PG Isaiah Thomas, Washington: 23.1 minutes per game, -2.75 RPM
We've awarded three LVP trophies in the past, and a familiar pattern is starting to emerge. The most dangerous players aren't necessarily the bad players; they're the players who used to be good. Because of their prior success, they tend to get overplayed by their coaches and drag their teams down with them.
It wasn't too long ago that Isaiah Thomas found himself in the MVP conversation for the Boston Celtics, as his incredible shotmaking helped make up for any defensive limitations he may have as a 5'9" player. That said, a small player like Thomas is always going to have a thin margin for error to remain a winning player. He needs to be GREAT offensively to make up for his defense. Unfortunately, his offense has not been great since his infamous injury. He can still make shots (hitting 41.3% of his threes), but he's not getting inside the paint and not getting to the free-throw line (1.9 attempts per game.) As a result, his true-shooting percentage lagged to 53.1%, well below league average.
If Isaiah Thomas isn't making scoring efficiently, then what is he doing to help a team win? He's not a great distributor (3.7 assists per game.) He's a very poor rebounder (1.7 per game.) And yes, that defense is still a major problem. According to ESPN's RPM metric, Thomas graded as a -4.2 impact per 100 possessions, the second worst in the league at PG after Trae Young. Basketball-reference lists his "defensive rating" at 121. For comparison's sake, the worst team defense in the league still held teams under 116. (That worst team? The Wizards.)
You can make an argument that there's still a place for Thomas in the NBA as a sparkplug scorer off the bench. Alas, that's not how the Wizards had been using him this season. He started 37 of 40 games for the team. Largely as a result of that, the Wizards' starting lineup was atrocious defensively. Fellow starters like Bradley Beal and Rui Hachimura ranked toward the bottom of their position in defensive metrics as well. When your lineup stinks defensively, a good coach may look in the mirror and say: hey, maybe we need a change here. Sadly, quick reactions are not Scottie Brooks' strong suit. He has the type of sloth-like speed that even frustrate workers at the DMV. The Wizards eventually dumped IT, but it took far too long to make that shift.
To be fair, the Wizards' options at point guard were limited with John Wall injured. Veteran Ish Smith is mediocre right now, and Shabazz Napier arrived late in the season. Still, the point here is: almost any competent point guard (like a Napier) would have helped the Wizards more than Isaiah Thomas. He had become a negative for them. The cold hard truth is that: it's very difficult to win basketball games with Thomas starting. And given that, he is our official LVP.

2020.06.15 08:50 idk_but_Im_tryin Operation Returning Legacy

Operation returning legacy defense operator - Temple ————————————————————— Affiliation: FBI SWAT
Full name: Gracia, Olivia
Place of birth: Sacramento, CA
Date of birth: 10/11/89
Icons: (Icons pending)
Speed: ⚫️⚫️⚫️ Armor: ⚫️⚪️⚪️ —————————————————————
Loadout:
Primaries: M1014, UMP45
Secondary: LFP586, 5.7USG
Secondary gadgets: Deployable shield, Barbed wire
Main gadget: MK II ACED (Area Control Explosive Device, “Ace device”)
Gadget description: The ACED is a small plastic explosive that has 1.5 times the radius and damage of a nitro cell. Temple gets 4 of these devices which she can place around the map. She has a small controller shaped like a toothpick holder with lights dictating five settings which can be cycled through with the dpad on console (not sure what the pc equivalent is, if someone wants to put it in the comments that would be helpful). The first four settings allow the detonation of one of the ACE devices going from he earliest placed to latest and the fifth settings allows you to detonate all of them at once. These devices can’t be thrown, they must be manually placed, so it’s best to place all of them in the prep phase. You can pick these devices back up after placing them and they can be put on floors or walls. You can quick detonate your ACEs by tapping the gadget button if all of them are placed, this will detonate the latest placed one. —————————————————————
Psychological report:
If I had to describe Garcia using one word, it would probably be ecstatic. Her joyful and chipper attitude is completely opposite of her new counterpart “North.” Of course, I didn’t just recruit Garcia to be a cheerleader for our team, her knowledge of explosives is rivaled only by our own specialist Trace. Specialist Basuda seems offended, almost intimidated, by Garcia’s gadget, the fact that her peppy attitude means she’s better liked by her fellow operators doesn’t exactly help Basuda in feeling secure.
-- Dr. Harishva “Harry” Pandey, Director of Rainbow —————————————————————- Device notes:
Device: MK II ACED Operator: Olivia “Temple” Garcia Evaluation lead: Jordan “Thermite” Trace
The explosives themselves are alright, not great, but certainly more sophisticated that Maxim’s DIY nail bombs. If I had to give any critiques of her gadgets I’d say to make it proximity based but there are two problems with that. For one, neither Temple or I know much about engineering, just explosives, we’d have to turn to Kapkan or Twitch for. The other problem is that Temple wants “More control” over her explosives, which is understandable, I know I like at least some degree of certainty when it comes to knowing how my charges will go off, but her explosives are meant to hurt people, what’s the point of controlling when they go off when they could be automated for you? Doesn’t matter anyhow, she’s the one that made them so she decides how they work.

2020.05.05 19:59 Tion3023 [R&D] Military R&D

Faced by a syndicalist government in Sacramento, a syndicalist government in Chicago, a syndicalist government in Mexico City, a Socialist Black insurgency, and Pellyist-Longist revolts, Commander MacArthur will have his hands full for some time. The lack of effort on behalf of his European benefactors to prevent a Syndicalist America means that MacArthur and his men will have to rely on themselves for innovation.

United States Army Ordnance Corps-Colt

Burdened by the Great Depression and rising labor organization, Colt saw fit to relocate to Tallahassee with the support of Long. With Long now long gone, Colt shall make firearms for what will be its biggest customer.

Small Arms

United States Carbine, Caliber .30, M1
The M1 Carbine is a semi-automatic carbine intended to be the standard fit for American soldiers. Its smaller size and lighter weight should make them easy to handle and use during high-mobility operations.
M1/A1 "Bazooka" rocket launcher
M9 "Bazooka" rocket launcher
Designed by Major Edward Uhl of the United States Army Ordnance Corps, the Bazooka rocket launcher variants are intended to be man-portable anti-tank rifles. Extensive support of the Syndicalist government in Chicago has spurred the necessity of a counter to the armored assault seen in Pennsylvania and Maryland. Its use on the field will allow for the quick deployment of high-explosive anti-tank weapons, severely hampering enemy operations.
The SCR-500 The development of lightning warfare saw the desire for the creation of mobile radio for the US Signal Corps. Developed by engineers, it would allow for quick and reliable communications over a long distance.

Armor

Several companies and manufacturers, especially those based in Georgia like Chrysler and Ford, will assist the Federal government in the development of armor.
M3 Sherman
M10 Tank Destroyer
The development of the M3 Sheridan interrupted by Light Tank was interrupted by the Second American Civil War. However, the development of Lightning Warfare spurred the interest of numerous generals in MacArthur’s staff. Fascinated by the Longist Stuart designs, American engineers have designed the M3 Sherman and the M10 Tank destroyer respectively. It would serve as the first domestically designed and produced American tank in the civil war. The former would be created to replicate the success of MacArthur and Chaffe’s advance on Pelly. The latter would be designed to overcome Syndicalist armor and industry.

Aircraft

The Pan American Airways, provided with lucrative business contracts, will assist military engineers in the development and creation of weapons of war. There are also companies like Boeing, North American Aviation, Fairchild, and many others who remained loyal to MacArthur’s legitimate emergency government.
PA-Lightning 20
Intended to serve as a bomber escort, the PA-Lightning 20 will allow for the USAAC to focus on maintaining air supremacy.
Specification 1 Specification 2
Crew 1
Maximum speed 433 mph (697 km/h, 376 kn) at 29,000 ft (8,839 m)
Combat range 800 mi (1,300 km, 700 nmi)
Ferry range 1,800 mi (2,900 km, 1,600 nmi)
Service ceiling 43,000 ft (13,000 m)
Rate of climb 3,180 ft/min (16.2 m/s)
North American P-51 Mustang Intended to allow continued military dominance of the skies, the P-51 Mustang will be a revolutionary long-range fighter capable of interception and dog-fighting. It’ll allow for American militarist air superiority whilst also being capable of limited CAS and escort missions. Necessary modifications will be made with war and allegiances in mind.
Specification 1 Specification 2
Maximum speed 440 mph (708 km/h, 383 kn)
Cruise speed 362 mph (583 km/h, 315 kn)

Range 1,650 mi (2,656 km, 1,434 nmi) with external tanks
Service ceiling 41,900 ft (12,800 m)
Boeing B-29 superfortress
Boeing and other companies like it will primarily dedicate themselves to the creation of an advanced long-range bomber capable of replacing the B-17 Flying Fortress. The B-29 Superfortress would be more than capable of crippling an enemy’s economy and war machine. The schematic would include state-of-the-art technologies like the Norden bombsight, pressurized cabins, an analog computer-controlled fire-control system, and many others. If completed, it would allow for risky bombing runs to California. Again, designs will be reverse-engineered and/or replaced when necessary.

Gullah Code
General MacArthur had long desired to have Native Americans enlisted as special code talkers, allowing for better communications between his forces. However, with most reserves out west, MacArthur with have to serve with Gullah. The old codebook will be thrown out and replaced with a secretive code developed by a small number of Gullah speakers. With only a few hundred to a thousand native speakers, the Gullah code might prove better than the Native American plan.

2020.04.01 05:21 KaSherr Who Was The Crazy One?

Hello, all. Quick backstory to me: 31 year old female. Served for 5.5 years in the military. Returned to school for 4 years and received my degree. It was VERY difficult and I struggled with money, the intense course load and depression. However, I am very happy to say I finished and have a job at a top company now.
But I had to choose the job over my ex fiancé whom I had been on and off with for 10 years. I struggle with the guilt daily. I question my decision. Was I too patient or not enough? Was I selfish? Did I expect too much? I have trouble discerning what is normal in a relationship and what isn’t. Sometimes I don’t even know what really happened or why. Even just a supportive comment would be appreciated.
I am now in therapy, but I wanted to share my list. This is my record, to the best of my memory, of every time he hurt me. I keep this now anytime I miss him and for when he contacts me, as he always manages to find a way.
Please note that after 2013, ALL of our relationship was long distance. He claimed he could not move from Fallon due to child custody (son is 6).

I sent him this list and blocked him on every outlet.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post. What are your initial thoughts?

2020.03.31 06:42 KaSherr Was He The Crazy One Or Me?

Hello, all. Quick backstory on me: 31 year old female. Joined the military at 20 and served 5.5 years. Returned to school for interior design for a full 4 years of studying. It was very difficult (no money, no real social life due to intense studies and I was depressed a lot of the time), but I am happy to say I received a job at the top architectural firm in the world after graduating. My issue is that I had to choose my fiancé or the job because he could not leave his town due to custody issues. Please know that I would have chosen him if not for all of the red flags.
It has been months since I completely blocked my ex fiancé. I am now in therapy and am progressing. But, I felt I needed to share my “list.” This list contains, to the best of my memory, all of the negative parts or happenings in our relationship over the almost 10 years we were are on and off. I keep it as a reminder of why he is no longer in my life and that it must stay that way.
If you have 30 minutes, I’d appreciate anyone’s thoughts. Men - would you treat a woman this way? Women - was I too patient or not enough? Please tell me... what was normal? What wasn’t? What was really going on???
Katie - me Shane - ex fiancé Jane - baby mama Silas - their son Jessica - woman he dated and lived with prior to me
We only dated for two months; the entire rest of our history was a LDR.
Fallon, Nevada 2010-2013 You were on a date and pointed to a young woman who had cellulite. You said something about thinking you had some on your legs, too. He said definitely not because we wouldn’t be dating you. You fell in love with him in San Francisco. When you posted your relationship status on Facebook after you’d been seeing each other for two months, he asked you to take it down. He dumped you. After only two months... he didn’t even give you a chance. YOU felt something and so did he.... He did not give you an explanation. He claimed years later it was for his job as we were both in cryptography. Said he wanted to stay “friends” He went back to his ex-fiancé and was immediately on her Facebook saying he loved her. He would still text you and say “good morning, beautiful”. He made fun of your “man shoulders” with his co-workers. And joked you might have had “banana boobs”. He made fun of your MOTORCYCLE. Said you were “too nice” Skyped home while you were in the room and did not offer to introduce you to his parents. Kept the screen facing himself the entire time. Took you to a friend’s house where everyone was smoking. They asked if you wanted any and you said yes not knowing what is was. He said you were dumb to do that. Why would he take you to an unsafe place? Said you were stupid to show your military license after getting caught by the police after drag racing. One of your co-workers confirmed he said terrible things about you. He talked about wanting to move to Austin, TX where all the singles were to your face. You once heard him SCREAMING from across the hall at work because of a COMSEC issue/dispute. He’d still walk by your desk and wink at you. You asked him to take you on a Valentine’s date once - he said no. He had plans already with his “friends” and his “friendship” with you was more important... but you weren’t invited. He wasn’t a friend to you at all. He made sure you were not telling people at work you were dating if they asked. He had sex with you and drove you back to the barracks afterwards. You cried and he still made you get out. He had you so confused, you were talking to a therapist. After he dumped you, you dated and went out with another man that rode motorcycles. He bought you an expensive matching helmet. When you told your ex, he laughed his ass off in the parking lot and proceeded to tell everyone in the building. He made you look like a fool in that town. He would text asking you what you were doing, but never wanted to hang out. You had to tell him to stop. You’d get mad and ignore him, but he’d corner you at work. Would send you photos of his trips and what he was doing, but that was all.... You started talking again and he asked you out. But then you found out that he had spent time with his ex. You broke off contact because of how toxic he was. He then walked past you everyday at work for a year and a half without stopping you. Without a single word. Because he didn’t really love you. You weren’t as pretty then and had short hair. His ex fiancé and new gf Jane (future baby mama) had bigger boobs. He told you this. He called it his “Big boob phase” He dated Jane instead of you. HE CHOSE HER OVER YOU. For the remainder of your tour there. When you were leaving Fallon, all he could text was, “Glasses look cute.” You ignored it. He let you leave. He didn’t stop you. Dumped his ex-fiancé because she forgot to flush the toilet. She had asked him later why he ended it and he told that her to her face. He told you this story while laughing. Jane moved to Seattle. He would drove to Seattle to see Jane where she had moved, but bitched to drive and see you. When they aborted their first and he was free of Jane - did he contact you? No, he kept fucking her. And when she was pregnant again and they were living together, he texted another woman. STILL NOT YOU. DAMN. He got a vasectomy without ever considering you. He reached out in 2015 ONLY AFTER things ended with Jane and she left him. You were on deployment and he was in the middle of all the custody and domestic partner BS - he didn’t take you seriously; you were just a distraction to him. You wholeheartedly accepted his son he’d had with her. No questions asked. Sent you an article on why it was beneficial to have sex on the first date. You got him a unique birthday card and a gift certificate to his favorite restaurant. No gifts in return. No profession of love or intentions of being serious despite you getting out of the military. You went home to Tennessee to be with your family and finish school. August/September 2015 He dumped you a third time. HE simply dropped contact. Zero explanation. October 2015 He messaged you on FB later asking to date again and you said no because he treated you like dog shit in the past. He got an attitude and cussed at you. Early 2016 You texted him you loved him months later and he didn’t care. He claimed later it was an ex texting from his old phone instead - was it? June 2016 He contacted you AGAIN. Said he had a dream job offer to the east coast and wanted to make things work this time. That was a lie. When you went to Fallon again for the first time, he took you to that Thai place... to show you off/brag in front of Jane’s friends. He said his son was the best thing to ever happen to him. He said his son came first. He never could shut up about Jane. Said she had beautiful skin in front of you. Said I needed a bigger butt and thighs. Said I had dark circles and baggy eyes. Said I had stretch marks. Would take photos of his son to send to her IN FRONT OF YOU. You explained how that made you feel and his response was, “If you don’t like it, then we are wasting our time.” They talked about how good-looking their child was and how perfect his teeth were in texts. Said your dogs were useless because they did not serve a purpose (Mini Dachshund and Corgi) Argued with you on color theory, saying it didn’t exist. Wouldn’t kiss you if you had just drank coffee. You drove 10 hours to see him in Washington D.C. and all he did was talk about his son. The entire fucking time. He barely gave you enough to cover gas. His reasoning for not saying “I love you” back was because he wasn’t sure how he felt about you and needed to be sure before he let you into his son’s life. You cried for a week solid. You made a HANDMADE birthday card for him. I can’t even remember what he got me for my birthday.... Whenever he called your parents house and asked for you, he NEVER spoke to your parents. He was rude to your parents, especially your dad, when he flew to see you and help with remodeling the bathroom. Left you with an unfinished bathroom. Your parents had to help you finish it because he decided to take time and go see his family in GA instead. When introducing you to his grandparents, he referred to you as a friend. When you accidentally got your dates mixed up and he had to buy another plane ticket, he told you, “This can’t happen again.” as if you were a child. At Walmart with his roommates, we saw a military SUV and they joked about Shane using it in a zombie apocalypse and piling us all in the back to save everyone. Shane said, “Fuck y’all, that’s where Silas’ stuff is going.” Silas is his son. Expected you to be OK with you and him FOLLOWING his baby momma wherever she and her husband were stationed. He sent you a butt workout and said his baby mama had used it and it worked great. You told him off for that. Followed fitness models on IG and sex accounts. While in front of his friends and roommates, he said if anything ever happened to his son, he’d go back to his ex and have another with her. Then hit your hand when you made a face (out of pure shock and hurt) and yelled at you to stop. Couldn’t stand your classmates messaging you while getting final grades back because of the attention loss. He sat there eating and explained to you why he doesn’t agree with hunting. Thought it was elitist to decide when another living thing dies or not. He had an abortion. You were out at dinner with his friends and he was messaging Jane at the table. You got an attitude BECAUSE IT WAS EMBERASSING AND HURTFUL and he got on to you later. He said you were “disrespectful” Argued with your best friend when they first met and Shane vehemently defended his baby momma. Your best friend and Jane did not like each other. He argued with your best friend and then made sure to say negative things about her long after. He would talk about your sex lives in front of people. When, how and how often. He would share nudes of you with friends. Setup his single friend with a married man and saw no problem with that if people were unhappy in their marriage... he said that to you. Did not agree with God and said he was an imaginary best friend. Made it clear he would never attend church with you. He and Chip, a good friend to you in Fallon, did not get along. Your Christmas gift was SURPRISE - lingerie. And NOTHING else. But you got him a nice $100 watch on a student budget.... He yelled at you when driving his BMW at the red light. He had no patience with you at all. While there for Christmas, he didn’t take any time from work to spend more with you. You told him you were lonely and he told you to just go make new friends. He also did not allow you to bring your dogs when you asked, so you had to leave them with your parents and shorten your stay. That last night, instead of dinner as a family, he drove you and Silas to a friend’s house. Even his friend was like, “What are you doing here? Go have dinner with your family.” You could see his friend was very confused why Shane was not wanting to spend quality time with you. A stranger noticed this. You were under so much scrutiny and stress, you were barely eating. You told him you wanted to go home. He let you walk away. Again. He didn’t stop you or give you a reason to stay. He brought a friend and rode go carts after he dropped you off at the airport. June 2018 HE CONTACTED YOU AGAIN. He begged you to take him back. Said he would do anything. Said he wouldn’t treat me any less than I deserved. He said he had things figured out with his son and Jane. That was a lie. Custody WAS NOT figured out. He said 3 years in Fallon. His job. His house. That was the deal. And he said later he would not have asked you to marry him if you did not agree to that. You were very clear that you might want kids someday, which he understood and agreed to. THAT WAS A LIE. Later, after you had ended the engagement, he said he did not want kids. Was going to marry you under the guise it was a possibility. Your mom wrote you a very personal letter saying you should not give up all of yourself to be with someone. Shane read it with you and said it didn’t make any sense; discounted it. There was no Interior Design program near where he lived, so he tried to convince you to do your last year of school remotely. Jane and he would talk about you. She questioned your ability to parent saying, “Hope she’s better than the last girl you dated....” He bought a brand new 80K car instead of prioritizing his money for you. A wedding maybe? Plane tickets? He gave the most BS, rushed proposal. No planning at all. No pictures except the ones you took yourself. Actually took you to the jeweler’s with him and bought it in front of you. He did not get on his knee. Posted nothing. But he’ll post pics of his son eating a goddamn taco. He then complained about the price of the ring. More than once. Complained about having to go on the cruise with your family. When you lost your phone and had to call Verizon with him, he cussed “goddamnit Katie” with the customer service rep. You were so embarrassed. You made dinner once and he was pissed it didn’t fit into his macros. He was so angry about the dogs and making sure I picked up all the poop. You missed some and he blew up at you. He said, “I don’t want MY SON” stepping in dog shit. He cussed at you. You both went to bed angry. He gave you a University of Nevada at Reno sweatshirt... it wasn’t his because he never attended... it was old... whose was it? Jane’s? She went and graduated from there. Wanted you ALL to go to a fair together. Him, you, Jane and her new husband and their son. He chose her over you years ago.... Couldn’t even buy you a new pair of head phones. Gave you his leftover pair. He makes almost 100K a year. He did not agree that high speed rail was a viable means of transportation. Argued for personal, private transportation by car. Your senior project was on high speed rail. He constantly took photos of his son. None of you. The few times he did, he would say, “Because you say I don’t take enough pictures with you.” He only cared about nude pics of you. He was never REALLY there for you. He wasn’t there for you in Fallon. He wasn’t with you through the military. He wasn’t with you through school. He wasn’t there at the hospital when you needed him. Instead, he demanded I text him and update him when it hurt just to hold my phone. And he was rude to your family. (I had an extremely low blood count due to an undiagnosed blood disorder. I needed two blood transfusions and was there for 4 days. Almost needed a spinal tap to find the cause) After learning of your blood disorder, he said it wouldn’t be a good idea to have a child with you. My dad has the same blood disorder and lives a perfectly normal life and had me! He wasn’t at your fucking college graduation. The biggest accomplishment of your life. He said your college graduation was “inconvenient”. For your graduation gift, he bought you a cheap, thin skin-tight dress from China to take pics and wear for him. And some fucking flowers. You never spent a birthday together. You still NEVER had a Valentine’s date with him. He made you leave your cat - because it wouldn’t feel like “HIS house.” He practically yelled at you on the phone. You mentioned applying for an internship (required to graduate) two hours away in Sacramento and he got so angry. When applying to internships, you learned there was NO interior design work in the nearest city (Reno, Nevada). You begged and cried to live in a city you could both work in. He just stayed silent. You obtained an internship at the top firm in the world 6 hours away in Las Vegas. “I knew this would happen” when you got your internship with Gensler, saying our goal-oriented and career-driven personalities would break us up. But he never did anything about it. When you mentioned your starting salary, his FIRST response was about how it was more than Jane’s. He convinced you to leave all your possessions behind. Said I “only had clothes”. Said we would just get them later that year because he couldn’t take off from work. Did not help you move. Did not take off work to drive cross country with you. You almost had to do it alone if not for, Anna, your best friend from school. He said you had “only worked eights weeks” for your job but he had worked 14 years for his. Said you used him. Said he gave up his dream job for you. He was offered a 3-year contract in Fallon for 150K salary. But he said he had also wanted to be a marine biologist. He didn’t know what he wanted. Said he turned down being a pilot for you because he had wanted to join the military. But you cried to him because if you had wanted a military husband, then you would have done so in the service. You didn’t want to deal with deployments. Made you agree to leave the job as you were crying. No congratulations at all. “If that’s what you want to do.” he said. He still never shut up about Jane even after you expressed how it made you feel and you had nightmares over it. He would talk about her when you were around other people or a group of his friends. Randomly mentioned her in the mall. “That’s why Jane and I never worked” at the bonfire in front of friends. Pointed at homes driving past, “Janelle and I looked at that house.” Would talk about her figure and compare us. Paid for her all of her schooling. DUMPED YOU during school. He didn’t pay a cent of yours. He helped her with her resume and got her a job on base. YOU GOT YOUR OWN JOB. YOU DID THE MILITARY ALONE. YOU WENT THROUGH ALL OF SCHOOL ALONE AND PAID FOR ALL OF YOUR DEGREE ALONE THEN GOT A JOB AT THE TOP ARCHITECTURAL FIRM IN THE WORLD ON YOUR OWN. He never chose to be with you/support you through any of it. He said you used him. You didn’t use him for a fucking thing. Several times, he said he wished you had not gone back to school and changed careers because ITs make more money. He and his baby mama would talk daily at work. They’d talk about YOU. Would work on her car; never ONCE checked the fluids in your car or that it was safe to drive. Not even when you did your trips back and forth to Fallon from Vegas. 6 hours one way. Constantly buying and selling his cars... was that how he would be with you when he got tired of you or things got hard? He bought you lingerie and ripped jean shorts to take nudes in - that was it. Oh, and some sandals. Sent you stockings to take nudes in. Convinced you that you needed a boob job - you DON’T. He never asked about your family or dogs. You would text a pic of your dogs and get no response. He never shut up about his son. He chose his son over you. He was perfectly fine fucking other women and letting you go for eight years. He literally forgot any bad thing he ever did. He never apologized or simply denied it ever happened. He would just get upset with you if you said something about it. Would say I misheard him. Would get annoyed and push your cat off the bed. He didn’t like your family. But then talked with Jane about my big family and how good it would be for THEIR son. He always had something negative to say about your friends. He always bitched about your dogs. You have the most well-behaved dogs. Everyone who meets them says so. He bitched about the gas money to see you. Never offered to pay yours. He expected you to drive 6 hours one way every other weekend; no excuses. He said HE was doing everything possible. And YOU were selfish. Said he sold his truck for you. Never acknowledged you moving to Nevada. You moved 36 hours to be closer and he couldn’t move 6. He sold his house and moved in to the same complex as his baby mama. The woman he chose over you. He was happy to tell you your best friend in Fallon didn’t care to spend time with you anymore after so long without seeing each other. Would immediately get up as soon as I took the last bite of any meal. He never let you rest. He never really hugged or held you. Didn’t like Chattanooga, TN. Would make fun of it or talk it down. NO ONE LIKED HIM. Every one in your life is happy you left him. He didn’t want you when you lived in Fallon without a cat, dogs, friends, family and a job you cared about. He IGNORED YOU. You took him back when he had a KID WITH A WOMAN HE FUCKED OVER YOU, but denied you your cat and hated your dogs. Didn’t care about ANY interest or hobby you had unless it had something to do with him. He didn’t care about your singing. He didn’t care about your artistic talents. Never once asked for your opinion on his tattoos. He had the stupidest tattoos. Bragged about not having watched Game of Thrones. I was supposed to forgive him for his past... but it was the reason we weren’t together. Would talk as if you being in school and moving away from Fallon was the reason you weren’t together. ALWAYS made sure to update you when he or you both ran into one of his ex’s. Would go into detail on how jealous they were or missed him or wish he’d chosen them. Dozens of pairs of Vans for him and his son. Never bought you a pair of Vans. Would wake you up in the middle of the night or super early to have sex. Never had you on his social media. He would do everything for his son, but didn’t want children with you. Bragged about being an asshole. Convinced you not to have children. Said he worried about how his son would feel if he had other children. What about my feelings? How do you think I would feel helping you raise a son, but you wouldn’t do the same for me? Made it out like his son was a GIFT to me. Like he was granting you permission to be in his son’s life. While out at lunch with him and his son, he took a photo and then sent a pic to his baby mama while I was at the table. When you were on your period, he would say you were “broken” but still good for blowjobs. Called it “blowjob week” He just made empty promises. And you couldn’t trust him. He gave you a phone stand and plane tickets. Not a life together. Only HIS LIFE. He said he was sorry for wasting the last year of your life. Just one year???? Fuck him and the scraps and leftovers of his time, money and energy he was willing to give you for a decade. Said he didn’t know what love meant until his son. What about you? He still doesn’t know how to love. You were getting a leftover house and leftover son. Leftover everything. But you were willing to move, leaving YOUR HOUSE, FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CAT and give him all your time. AND chance your career and never be a mother. He moved into his baby mama’s apartment complex instead of moving to be with you. You wanted to live in a home you both found together and agreed on - not the one he bought for his new family when they’d found out they were having a child. He could not understand that at all and was like, “I’ll sell my house since you don’t like it.” He told his employers he needed a raise because, if not for his son and “bad mother”, he’d move to the east coast to be with me. She’s not a bad parent at all - he just thinks no one is as good as he is. Once again, you were not his priority. After Anna’s visit, he FLIPPED saying you become someone else when another person is around. Said he could do whatever he wanted in “his house”. Made a dirty joke about you choking on a bone while at lunch with her. She was a 22 year old Catholic virgin. While at the sink washing dishes, he needed the sink and lost his patience with you. He couldn’t just put a hand on your shoulder and ask you to move aside. Professor Miller told you not to compromise. Terry, your mentor, told you not to give him another thought. Ryan said he was glad you made the choice you did. That I had earned it. He was unsure of you for EIGHT YEARS. FUCK HIM. He always bought his son clothes, shoes and hats - never bought you anything except booty shorts and lingerie. Not a single selfless, meaningful birthday gift or Christmas present from him EVER. You couldn’t celebrate anniversaries because of all the times it didn’t fucking work. Everyone said you could do better. Brock said it. Stephanie Balver said it. Chip called him a “committaphobe” YOUR STEPMOM, who is always right, told you that you made the right choice and did absolutely nothing wrong. Your bio mom told you he would have eventually been physical with you. Uncle Rudy told you you had no business going out to Fallon to be with him. George didn’t like him. He constantly wanted nudes and to sext. Had you driving SIX HOURS one way every other weekend through the middle of nowhere Nevada to see him. Anything could have happened to you. Flights are $60 from LV to RNO. You felt he was punishing you for choosing your job. He made fun of what you wore. “You’re going to meet my dad in a romper?” You would have resented him. He would have cheated on you eventually like he did Jane. He told his bosses that if not for Jane being a bad mother, he’d move to the east coast to be with me... so I have to pay the price??? Haven’t I paid enough for him choosing Jane over me???? HE didn’t want another child because HE already had one. HE didn’t want a new house because HE already had one. HE didn’t want you to have a career because HE already had one. You weren’t allowed to have anything. ONLY AFTER his ex Jessica was married with two kids and Jane’s body was ruined after having a baby and their relationship crumbled... were you worth his time. He talked bad about almost everyone of his family members and friends. He was willing to do the same thing to you that he did Jane. Pull her to a city she had left with empty promises. And you wouldn’t have even gotten a child out of it. He contacted you again. With a wedding pic on Pinterest. It took him a month to break you down and agree to see him. Then did a complete 180. Only wanted to meet up for sex. You told him as long as you were second to his son, then he was second to your job. He agreed to it but wanted you in his future because you were the best SEX of his life. Not the love of his life. CRASHED his truck driving to you, but then turned around and expected you to make the same drive just for sex the next weekend. He was not concerned for your safety. Didn’t even text you on your birthday. You begged him for a relationship. You cried to him. He only yelled at you. He lured you in. As many times as he hurt you, he couldn’t show you the same forgiveness. You caught him on a dating website. He denied it. He ignored your calls and texts. He used you. Again. He hurt you. Again. He never valued you. He could have made you the happiest, but all he did was ever hurt you more than anyone in your entire life. It wasn’t you that couldn’t forgive and forget. It was HIM. He wouldn’t let you forget the past.... He is not a real man by any definition of the word. He is a liar and a manipulator. He is a narcissist.

NBA 2000/2001 season (part 2)

Day 11: The Greatest Show on Court

Last week, Sports Illustrated Magazine wrote an article and devoted a cover to this 2000-2001 Sacramento Kings; titling them “The Greatest Show on Court”. After making the playoffs only once in the previous 12 seasons, the Kings were fresh off of back to back post season appearances and ready to be acknowledged as a Western Conference Powerhouse.
2001/02/19 Sports Illustrated Cover
Their starting lineup featured fierce and talented All-NBA Power Forward Chris Webber, sharpshooter Peja Stojakovic, defensive minded Shooting Guard Doug Christie , versatile big man Vlade Divac, and the fearlessly flashy Jason Williams at the Point Guard position.
Coached by potential Hall of Famer Rick Adelman, they had depth as well, at any time being able to bring Bobby Jackson, Scot Pollard , Hedo Turkoglu , and Lawrence Funderburke off the bench in order to make a quick and lasting impact upon the game. After many years of disappointment and struggle, it was a wonderful time to be a fan of the Kings.
This is a revision do it by Stephen Rubalcaba about this incredible article that you can see in the figure above, but I want to notice two points in this team, not about the incredible players but in numbers: Pace and Offensive rating, where they are the first team in both section, and here we understand the new, fresh way to play that makes everyone love them.
Some midseason predictions in the magazine
Yesterday It was the Trade deadline and we have to present a bomb in the league, and some other important trades, with the last dance of Sixers searching the title, and a lot of changes in Toronto face to the postseason:
  • The Philadelphia 76ers traded Toni Kukoč, Nazr Mohammed, Theo Ratliff and Pepe Sánchez to the Atlanta Hawks for Roshown McLeod and Dikembe Mutombo.
  • The Toronto Raptors traded Tyrone Corbin, Kornél Dávid, Corliss Williamson and a 2005 1st round draft pick to the Detroit Pistons for Eric Montross and Jerome Williams.
  • The Toronto Raptors traded Muggsy Bogues and Mark Jackson to the New York Knicks for Chris Childs and a 2002 1st round draft pick.
  • The Washington Wizards traded Calvin Booth, Obinna Ekezie and Juwan Howard to the Dallas Mavericks for Courtney Alexander, Hubert Davis, Christian Laettner, Etan Thomas, Loy Vaught and cash.

Day 12: The Big Duo

A relationship is so complex, people from different sites with different points of view trying to walk the same path into a common interest. Shaq and Kobe are two of the best players in the league but they are too different. Kobe is the young leader-scorer looking into dominate Los Angeles, while Shaq is the old dog used to chase away the beats from the Los Angeles Lakers. Two trains on full speed with only one possible ending, a tragic divorce.
Shaquille and Kobe in 1997
You mustn’t be so melancholy yet, it could be a tragic ending but everything has an ending, that’s the life and the league. We never know when it could be the last kiss, the last dance, the last concert or the last match, but instead of being afraid about the future you should be thankful about today, every night is a gift so enjoy the game.
Conference Standings 03/17
There were so many duos dominating the league: Kareem and Magic, Pippen and Jordan, Russell and Cousy, Erving and Malone, Thomas and Dumars. History of friendship, history of the league. And now we have to appreciate this incredible and different big duo. The best guard and the best center in the league combining to be the best scorer in the second best team in the west. Now you can see one of the latest dance about this two great players in the Los Angeles Lakers (44-21), against Orlando Magic (36-29) with the awaken star Tracy McGrady who we talked about some time ago.

Day 13: What’s happening mister Pacers?

In Greek mythology Sisyphus was the king of Ephyra. He was punished for his self-aggrandizing craftiness and deceitfulness by being forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill only for it to roll down every time it neared the top, repeating this action for eternity.
Reggie Miller against New York Knicks
Indiana Pacers was one of the greatest in the ABA (ancient basketball Asociation absorbed by the NBA) with 3 championships, 5 finals in 9 years. Then they decided to join NBA, and now they are one of the most competitive franchise in the league but I can’t let thinking about the Sisyphus’ story. In 1995 they were the neared the top, losing the NBA eastern final conference in 7 games vs Orlando Magic, after that they lost in first round and didn’t classify to playoff in the following two years, but after difficult years they achieved roll their immense boulder up into the finals, but again they have fallen into the bottom, they are eighth in a poor east and they probably don’t throw away from first round.

Could Pacers break the spell and rolling the boulder up to the glory and don’t fall down when they would near the top? Today we have the Indiana Pacers (37-40) trying to guarantee playing at least 3 more games next week, against the New York Knicks (46-31) singing their own ode to the update, with a lot to improve to the next years.

Day 15: Lost

Lost Conference Semifinals 4–1 in 1983, lost Conference Semifinals 4–1 in 1985, lost First Round 3–0 in 1989, lost Conference Finals 4–2 in 1991, lost First Round 3–1 in 1997, lost First Round 3–1 in 1998, Lost Conference Finals 4–3 last year. "Lost" is the only word the Blazers fans have listened in every showdown between these teams, besides, Portland went from a (42-18) in march to a fateful (50-32), in other words in the last two month they have a record of (8-14). Like a Chronicle of a Death Foretold it seems our story only could pass in one way.

Old rivalry strikes again, this is the first game in the first round, the second in the west (Lakers) vs seventh in the west (Blazers). It could seems not very interesting, but we are going to see a historic rivalry and everything could happen, and for sure they will fight until the end. https://mega.nz/#F!utgwmYbS

Day 16: Captain Kidd

Legend states that Captain Kidd was one of the most important pirate to sail the seven seas until was tried and executed. Point Guard as serious as any we have ever fought, Jason is built over a great IQ and a great skill in the pass, he is ready to navigate even the worse cruise but Phoenix doesn't have enough gunpowder not even to take the weakest kingdom in the NBA. He would be free to change of franchise this summer but until that moment everyone in Phoenix has taking their weapons for the war and they successfully and unexpectedly have won the first game (86-83) in California, a hard blow to the greatest show on the court.

PlayOff is one of the most complicated competitios, one or two bad matches and you are over, months and months of hard working for nothing, a cold shiver through your body, no more competitions in 5 months. Our protagonist will be out in a few moments to show us who's chasing harder the win. https://mega.nz/#F!blxQDYoZ

Day 17: The Cowboys

The Cowboys is a 1972 American western film starring John Wayne, the plot of this film is simple, when the ranch hands abandon him to join a gold rush, aging rancher William ‘Wil’ Andersen (John Wayne) is forced to find replacement drovers for his upcoming 400-mile (640 km) long cattle drive. He rides into deserted Bozeman, Montana. There, his friend Anse Peterson (Slim Pickens) suggests using local schoolboys. Andersen visits the school but departs unconvinced by the boys’ immature behavior.
2001 Dallas Mavericks photo
These are our young cowboys, some guys travel one more time long into the desert of the west conference looking for the glory of a NBA title. In a principle, this isn’t the best team, but they are so good friends without pressure and an owner (Cuban), happy for their kids, walking in the same direction. After 10 consecutive years without PlayOff everything has changed and they have finished fifth in the west conference, but even better, they have one of the youngest roster and their rebuilding is done, they only have to catch the roof by winning the championship and this could happen in the following years.
The film is also notable for being one of the few in which John Wayne’s character is killed and the only one where he is killed by the main antagonist. We hope this won’t be the same luck for our cowboys that are fighting in the final game 5 of the first round against Utah Jazz, an historic with Stockton and Malone two-times-finalists. This western duel it will start, pay attention: (https://mega.nz/#F!a4AjjQqY)

Day 18: Vince Earhart

The history of aviation dates back to the day when the ancient man used to observe the flight of birds and other flying animals. The desire to fly has been present in humanity for centuries, and throughout human history there is evidence of attempts to fly that have ended badly. Some tried to fly imitating birds, using a pair of wings made with a wooden skeleton and feathers, which they placed on the arms and swung them without achieving the expected result. But Amelia Earhart was different, she didn’t have the same dreams as the other childen, and she achieved to be the first woman crossing the Atlantic Ocean in 1928.
2000 Carter flying photo
Vince Carter neither was an ordinary child, and he has a dream, he wanted to fly over the basketball court, and he did last year, impressing all the world winning the Dunk contest in the All Star. He is one of the most skillful players in the league and he has one of the most difficult challenges in his shortly career, to win a game 5 of the first round in PlayOff. They will travel to the Big Apple to certificate a semifinal eastern conference pass. Could they take it? (https://mega.nz/#F!jhYHwCSY)

2020.03.24 02:11 light5577 FUTURE : Excerp from cst

A little guide to "wtf is going on"
As many of you are already aware, the mainstream media is owned by six media conglomerates: GE, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, CBS, News Corp
They have a major influence in what we talk and think about. This is not a conspiracy theory, but facts that can be easily proven with the Socratic method. Here is one example:
On November 5, 2017, hundreds of journalists from around the world gathered together to release the Paradise Papers, a compilation of financial records providing evidence of illegal tax evasion and laundering by some of the most wealthiest in the world, including the Queen of England.
On that exact same day, the Sutherland Springs Church shooting occurred and completely dominated the news cycle and the Paradise Papers was never discussed or seen from again.
What we are currently witnessing with the mainstream coverage of the coronavirus is a recognition of our cognitive dissonance which is why we feel as if something is off.
We are so used to believing what we are told that even when simple logic and statistics are applied, we will fall for the mob mentality (this term has a negative connotation when it can be expressed positively. A lot of our language has been twisted in order for us to fall into categorical thinking that leads to division among the populace. I like to use the term “The Hundredth Monkey Effect”).
There were nearly 140,000 people who contracted the common flu each day in the year 2019.
The total reported cases of corona virus worldwide right now at the time of this writing stands at 240,000, first discovered in China, December 2019.
Even if we take into account that this number is most likely underreported due to various factors such as lack of viable tests, it is still statistically insignificant compared to the seasonal flu.
This “global lockdown” that is taking place appears to be an over-exaggerated response when taking these numbers into account.
While people are busy preaching doom and gloom, disinformation campaigns and conspiracies, I would like to offer an alternative perspective that is rooted in reality.
Over-exaggerated reactions warrant over-exaggerated solutions.
What have these over-exaggerated solutions produced so far?
-An update to every company’s sick/leave policies. This has been a major problem for many years as employees always feared getting financially crippled if they have a prolonged illness. Expect these policies to become permanent.
-Many parents are switching to homeschooling to finish off the rest of the year for their children. This not only contributes to special bonding but a growth of true individuality. Prepare for this trend to stick around as we discuss ways to revamp our education system.
-Some of the first businesses to close were restaurants and bars. Many employees of the service industry are college graduates who for one reason or another, did not find an adequate job towards their career. Now with the furlough/unemployment stimulus package that will continue for months, this will provide the focus, resources, and time needed for these college graduates to reenter the work force with their field in mind.
-Many people are now cooking at home. This greatly reduces sodium/fat intake which will contribute to higher overall well being.
-Many people are taking on new hobbies such as art and crafts. I have always predicted that our economy is going to shift towards handcrafted goods/services as more and more things become automated. This is going to be a start of that renaissance as people now have months to pursue such hobbies.
-More family time. Many people are together with their families again spending quality time. -Second baby boom. Many people in western culture are in the preconception that it is better not to have a baby in today’s age for a list of reasons that points towards pessimism. But if one was to have an open mind and indulge in the idea that the world is going to be an amazing wonderful place, wouldn’t it then be sensible to have as many babies as possible?
-World peace. There are no wars at the time of this writing. In fact, the world is actually working together in harmony. This is arguably the biggest news story of the year, we have made a peace treaty with the Taliban and will be pulling all troops out of Afghanistan by 2021. I don’t recall the last time in written history the world was in a state of complete peace. This is absolutely monumental. These are indicators that we are not in a repeating timeline anymore but breaking the mold.
-More sleep = more healing. A lot of Americans are sleep deprived which makes it so your body never fully heals 100% from joint wearing, muscle tearing, and mental stress As more and more people get their much needed rest, they will have sharper focus, energy, and rational thinking which will lead to better decisions.
-Working at home is now being evaluated as a sensible efficient business concept
-Pollution rates have plummeted worldwide, mostly due to grounded flights as aircrafts create the most damage to our ozone layer
-Construction is still allowed during the lockdown which allows a lot of infrastructure to be rebuilt quickly without disturbing daily life of citizens
-Many pets such as dogs and cats will be adopted as people have more time on their hands
-Shelters are provided for all homeless people
-People are focusing on geriatrics and allocating sufficient funding for senior care and homes (something our senior population has been in desperate need of)
-Entertainment/pro sports industries are at a standstill, less distractions for people during this introspective time
In conclusion, we are preparing to reset the American economy and making sure everyone is on the same page to avoid any civil fallout.

https://www.statnews.com/2020/02/06/open-science-publishing-and-public-research-support-could-trump-have-it-right/
And many more but these are the ones that have big implications to the current picture.
A spreading misconception:
-The markets are imploding! All the gains are gone! We are heading into a Great Depression!
Truth: One of the main reasons the markets are “imploding” is because of the shift in energy production and allocation that is coming very very fast in our future. The USA became energy independent as of last year. We are also now the biggest supplier of oil in the world. And this other part, I have no idea how this was accomplished but watching the sequence of it blew my mind, but we negotiated a deal to have Saudi Arabia leave the oil game. This has caused a huge scramble among international oil companies as they have to constantly lower prices in order to compete and cash out in order to jump to new industries. This huge gap left in the market is from this shift that is occurring. As Trump mentioned in his Davos World Summit speech, soon America is going to have “limitless energy” as we are already shifting our focus onto clean nuclear energy and “new technologies.” This is why gas prices are decreasing at such fast rates. In some states, gas prices are 99 cents!
Yes, the coronavirus is having an impact on the markets as well but there is always an expected stock market drop with every “major” virus spread. This is intentional as you can slowly start witnessing on the news that there were insider trading among corporations and politicians. It’s clockwork. They do this every time but our short attention span jumps to the next thing like Pavlov’s Law and we forget about it.
Everyone panics when the market drops 10% but gradually regains their senses when the market goes back up 1-2% annually since the crash. The stock market has always been a major pump and dump scheme with the insiders cashing out the most. It is no longer a dependable model to judge the strength of our economy since too many banks heavily influence the markets.
Why should we remain confident in the economy? Well, simply put, the USA is filthy rich right now.
As I am sure you heard, Trump has offered “$2000” as compensation. A lot of Bernie supporters jumped in mockery to claim, “Oh look who’s socialist now!,” but as usual, they could not be any more wrong (low blow, but I couldn’t help it XD).
A good question is, why is the news barely covering Trump’s proposal for “$2000” but giving headlines to politicians who are calling for “$1000?”
It is because the money that Trump is proposing is not from tax payer dollars. We are not going to have to “pay it back” in one way or another in the future as it would be if we used our own tax dollars.
The money is from the US Treasury and it is stockpiled right now because of all the new trade deals that favor the USA. That is our money. Plain and simple. Our collective hard work has been proven through ratified tariffs in other countries. Every country has agreed to our terms. Including China. We have already accumulated over hundreds of billions in cash from last year alone.
This is why Trump said $2000 and “much much more coming very soon.” The mainstream media does not want you to know about this. They do not want you to know that taxes are not needed to begin with when you have a GDP as strong as the US. There are many functioning states that do not operate with pay roll taxes and they are economically sound. We would be able to fund any democratically accepted policy in the US with ease from just the tariffs alone.
What we are witnessing in actuality, is the battle between the current White House administration, the Federal Reserve and the centralized banks. The coronavirus is more of a covedistraction as both sides make their chess moves.
This is why as soon as Trump approved of removing student Federal loan interests, the Federal Reserve responded by pumping the banks with $1.5 trillion. A few days later, Trump double downed on approving 0% pay roll tax, the Federal Reserve responded by slashing interest rates to 0% the next day which caused the latest market crash.
We are beginning to choke the Federal Reserve by removing taxes because we did not need them to begin with. We only needed them to manage our debt and inflation since we got off the gold standard. They are not even a government entity, but a private institution that works only to enrich the big banks.
These banks will not go down easily. The last president who openly criticized and offered solutions out of the Federal Reserve was John F. Kennedy and he was assassinated for it. They have a stranglehold on the market and that stranglehold has to be removed finger by finger as not to actually implode everything. Rest assured, economic failsafes have already been instituted and prepared. Funnily enough, it was funded on the Federal dime as we borrowed that spending in record amounts, which was intentional. The Trump administration has spent more on infrastructure on borrowed money than any other president. We are preparing to “default” on the debt we owe the Federal Reserve as we make a transition back to the gold standard. The US has already secured enough gold to make this transition possible as well as printed US Treasury currency ready to be distributed at a moment’s notice.
What does this mean for you?
We are about to witness an era of prosperity the United States has never seen before once we exit this momentary lapse of confusion and panic. And these are not delusions, or “hopefully it happens,” or “that’s not possible.” I have been carefully studying all policies, executive orders, and actions of the three branches of government and can conclude that great things are on their way as I speak.
Everything has been put in place. In a bigger abstract sense, it has been ordained on December 21st, 2012 by an energy force so great and pure. Some call it God, Gaia, Supreme Being, Mother Nature, the universe, positive energy, “solar flares,” magnetic pole shifts, Schumann Resonance, 5th dimension, whatever it is, has come to take over the timeline and funnel us into the point of inevitability. Right now is an amazing time to tune into your synchronicity. A lot of clues are being laid around you right now for you to reach your higher self, to truly push the boundaries of your potential as a unique individual spirit. You are at the right place at the right time.
-Removal of the Federal Reserve = Freedom from taxes, higher incomes, better benefits. As life becomes more relaxed and leisurely, companies will be competing for your contract. Many other streams of revenue will be accessible.
-Limitless energy: it means the cost of everything plummets. Everything will become very cheap and affordable. I would even recommend people to start designing their dream homes now. Japan is already working on a prototype solar panel that can be placed in space which will have super high levels of energy output.
-As energy becomes free, costs of travel will become significantly reduced and new technologies (Pentagon black projects, recently converted into “Space Force” to be placed under public scrutiny and to disseminate the new technology that has been kept hidden from the masses) will be introduced that will increase the speed of travel to one hour, anywhere in the world. This will jumpstart the true form of globalism as you can work in any place that you want and live separately in any place as well.
-Spiritual awareness - We will all be gaining the ability to astral project! Keep your mind in good shape! Brain damage can make astral projection difficult!
-Life span will greatly increase. As you might have read the recent headline, scientists have cured a HIV patient, the 2nd time we were ever able to do so. Expect a lot more successful headlines in regards to medicine/science. It is actually happening already and a lot of it has to do with removing toxic CEOs and board directors who undermine breakthrough research that improves the human race for their own self-gain.
Resignations of the following CEOs from just the past couple months alone: CEO of Disney CEO of Tinder (why do you think people feel more lonely than ever even with dating apps? Algorithms in dating apps set you up for failure and addiction to maximize profits, but fortunately the corrupt masterminds behind these algorithms are being removed as we speak)
CEO of Hinge
CEO of OkCupid
CEO of Match
CEO of Hulu
CEO of MedMen
CEO of Victoria’s Secret
CEO of Salesforce
CEO of Harley Davidson
CEO of IBM
CEO of T-Mobile
CEO of LinkedIn
CEO of MasterCard
Board member Microsoft Bill Gates
Board member Berkshire Hathaway Bill Gates
CEO of Lockheed Martin
(Many of these were on the day after Weinstein’s arrest. A “checkpoint” that indicates their next move)
+many more in the past two months. In the past three years, resignations of notable CEOs and board members totaled over 11,000.
Where are all these CEOs going? To be honest, I already subtracted a lot of information from this single writeup alone just to condense it as much as possible and will have to unfortunately do the same here since it is a long explanation in itself. Please ignore all other theories and hypotheticals from other people in regards to the CEOs as many of them are starting to spread online. Vast disinformation campaigns are put into place to combat the growing truth.
All you really need to know is that the “good guys” have obtained enough leverage to force them all out.
Those who refuse to comply with resignation orders have a hidden scandal of theirs blown up on the news. This is why so many scandals have been coming to light, not just in the US, but worldwide.
Points I do not have the time to dive into but good to be mindful of:
-High rate of celebrities/politicians contracting coronavirus (involves the bio lab near Wuhan which produced illegal human enhancing chemical compounds) Keep note of their rapidly deteriorating health as they experience withdrawals on a grand scale -Joe Biden’s voter counts (please keep in mind that in 2016, Bernie supporters filed a joint class action lawsuit against the DNC for rigging the primaries and lost on the grounds that the DNC is a private institution and can choose to reveal results and delegates however they choose to do so) -Google/Facebook/other social media companies are uncensored now. Search results are showing authentic results that were once censored or removed from the top results before. #Pizzagate was actually trending on Twitter a couple days ago. -Here is a video from “Event 201” from October 2019 hosted by John Hopkins Center that involves Bill Gates, WHO, CDC, and other nonprofit powerhouses who conveniently set up an exercise dealing with the coronavirus just months prior: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoLw-Q8X174
Everything I have listed is verifiable and sourced. I am more than happy to provide any additional information that backs up any of my claims.
We are living in interesting times and things are just warming up! I could literally talk for days about the exciting things that have happened and are in development.
History is watching.
Where we go one, we go all.

On that exact same day, the Sutherland Springs Church shooting occurred and completely dominated the news cycle and the Paradise Papers was never discussed or seen from again.
What we are currently witnessing with the mainstream coverage of the coronavirus is a recognition of our cognitive dissonance which is why we feel as if something is off.
We are so used to believing what we are told that even when simple logic and statistics are applied, we will fall for the mob mentality (this term has a negative connotation when it can be expressed positively. A lot of our language has been twisted in order for us to fall into categorical thinking that leads to division among the populace. I like to use the term “The Hundredth Monkey Effect”).
There were nearly 140,000 people who contracted the common flu each day in the year 2019.
The total reported cases of corona virus worldwide right now at the time of this writing stands at 240,000, first discovered in China, December 2019.
Even if we take into account that this number is most likely underreported due to various factors such as lack of viable tests, it is still statistically insignificant compared to the seasonal flu.
This “global lockdown” that is taking place appears to be an over-exaggerated response when taking these numbers into account.
While people are busy preaching doom and gloom, disinformation campaigns and conspiracies, I would like to offer an alternative perspective that is rooted in reality.
Over-exaggerated reactions warrant over-exaggerated solutions.
What have these over-exaggerated solutions produced so far?
-An update to every company’s sick/leave policies. This has been a major problem for many years as employees always feared getting financially crippled if they have a prolonged illness. Expect these policies to become permanent.
-Many parents are switching to homeschooling to finish off the rest of the year for their children. This not only contributes to special bonding but a growth of true individuality. Prepare for this trend to stick around as we discuss ways to revamp our education system.
-Some of the first businesses to close were restaurants and bars. Many employees of the service industry are college graduates who for one reason or another, did not find an adequate job towards their career. Now with the furlough/unemployment stimulus package that will continue for months, this will provide the focus, resources, and time needed for these college graduates to reenter the work force with their field in mind.
-Many people are now cooking at home. This greatly reduces sodium/fat intake which will contribute to higher overall well being.
-Many people are taking on new hobbies such as art and crafts. I have always predicted that our economy is going to shift towards handcrafted goods/services as more and more things become automated. This is going to be a start of that renaissance as people now have months to pursue such hobbies.
-More family time. Many people are together with their families again spending quality time. -Second baby boom. Many people in western culture are in the preconception that it is better not to have a baby in today’s age for a list of reasons that points towards pessimism. But if one was to have an open mind and indulge in the idea that the world is going to be an amazing wonderful place, wouldn’t it then be sensible to have as many babies as possible?
-World peace. There are no wars at the time of this writing. In fact, the world is actually working together in harmony. This is arguably the biggest news story of the year, we have made a peace treaty with the Taliban and will be pulling all troops out of Afghanistan by 2021. I don’t recall the last time in written history the world was in a state of complete peace. This is absolutely monumental. These are indicators that we are not in a repeating timeline anymore but breaking the mold.
-More sleep = more healing. A lot of Americans are sleep deprived which makes it so your body never fully heals 100% from joint wearing, muscle tearing, and mental stress As more and more people get their much needed rest, they will have sharper focus, energy, and rational thinking which will lead to better decisions.
-Working at home is now being evaluated as a sensible efficient business concept
-Pollution rates have plummeted worldwide, mostly due to grounded flights as aircrafts create the most damage to our ozone layer
-Construction is still allowed during the lockdown which allows a lot of infrastructure to be rebuilt quickly without disturbing daily life of citizens
-Many pets such as dogs and cats will be adopted as people have more time on their hands
-Shelters are provided for all homeless people
-People are focusing on geriatrics and allocating sufficient funding for senior care and homes (something our senior population has been in desperate need of)
-Entertainment/pro sports industries are at a standstill, less distractions for people during this introspective time
In conclusion, we are preparing to reset the American economy and making sure everyone is on the same page to avoid any civil fallout.

https://www.statnews.com/2020/02/06/open-science-publishing-and-public-research-support-could-trump-have-it-right/
And many more but these are the ones that have big implications to the current picture.
A spreading misconception:
-The markets are imploding! All the gains are gone! We are heading into a Great Depression!
Truth: One of the main reasons the markets are “imploding” is because of the shift in energy production and allocation that is coming very very fast in our future. The USA became energy independent as of last year. We are also now the biggest supplier of oil in the world. And this other part, I have no idea how this was accomplished but watching the sequence of it blew my mind, but we negotiated a deal to have Saudi Arabia leave the oil game. This has caused a huge scramble among international oil companies as they have to constantly lower prices in order to compete and cash out in order to jump to new industries. This huge gap left in the market is from this shift that is occurring. As Trump mentioned in his Davos World Summit speech, soon America is going to have “limitless energy” as we are already shifting our focus onto clean nuclear energy and “new technologies.” This is why gas prices are decreasing at such fast rates. In some states, gas prices are 99 cents!
Yes, the coronavirus is having an impact on the markets as well but there is always an expected stock market drop with every “major” virus spread. This is intentional as you can slowly start witnessing on the news that there were insider trading among corporations and politicians. It’s clockwork. They do this every time but our short attention span jumps to the next thing like Pavlov’s Law and we forget about it.
Everyone panics when the market drops 10% but gradually regains their senses when the market goes back up 1-2% annually since the crash. The stock market has always been a major pump and dump scheme with the insiders cashing out the most. It is no longer a dependable model to judge the strength of our economy since too many banks heavily influence the markets.
Why should we remain confident in the economy? Well, simply put, the USA is filthy rich right now.
As I am sure you heard, Trump has offered “$2000” as compensation. A lot of Bernie supporters jumped in mockery to claim, “Oh look who’s socialist now!,” but as usual, they could not be any more wrong (low blow, but I couldn’t help it XD).
A good question is, why is the news barely covering Trump’s proposal for “$2000” but giving headlines to politicians who are calling for “$1000?”
It is because the money that Trump is proposing is not from tax payer dollars. We are not going to have to “pay it back” in one way or another in the future as it would be if we used our own tax dollars.
The money is from the US Treasury and it is stockpiled right now because of all the new trade deals that favor the USA. That is our money. Plain and simple. Our collective hard work has been proven through ratified tariffs in other countries. Every country has agreed to our terms. Including China. We have already accumulated over hundreds of billions in cash from last year alone.
This is why Trump said $2000 and “much much more coming very soon.” The mainstream media does not want you to know about this. They do not want you to know that taxes are not needed to begin with when you have a GDP as strong as the US. There are many functioning states that do not operate with pay roll taxes and they are economically sound. We would be able to fund any democratically accepted policy in the US with ease from just the tariffs alone.
What we are witnessing in actuality, is the battle between the current White House administration, the Federal Reserve and the centralized banks. The coronavirus is more of a covedistraction as both sides make their chess moves.
This is why as soon as Trump approved of removing student Federal loan interests, the Federal Reserve responded by pumping the banks with $1.5 trillion. A few days later, Trump double downed on approving 0% pay roll tax, the Federal Reserve responded by slashing interest rates to 0% the next day which caused the latest market crash.
We are beginning to choke the Federal Reserve by removing taxes because we did not need them to begin with. We only needed them to manage our debt and inflation since we got off the gold standard. They are not even a government entity, but a private institution that works only to enrich the big banks.
These banks will not go down easily. The last president who openly criticized and offered solutions out of the Federal Reserve was John F. Kennedy and he was assassinated for it. They have a stranglehold on the market and that stranglehold has to be removed finger by finger as not to actually implode everything. Rest assured, economic failsafes have already been instituted and prepared. Funnily enough, it was funded on the Federal dime as we borrowed that spending in record amounts, which was intentional. The Trump administration has spent more on infrastructure on borrowed money than any other president. We are preparing to “default” on the debt we owe the Federal Reserve as we make a transition back to the gold standard. The US has already secured enough gold to make this transition possible as well as printed US Treasury currency ready to be distributed at a moment’s notice.
What does this mean for you?
We are about to witness an era of prosperity the United States has never seen before once we exit this momentary lapse of confusion and panic. And these are not delusions, or “hopefully it happens,” or “that’s not possible.” I have been carefully studying all policies, executive orders, and actions of the three branches of government and can conclude that great things are on their way as I speak.
Everything has been put in place. In a bigger abstract sense, it has been ordained on December 21st, 2012 by an energy force so great and pure. Some call it God, Gaia, Supreme Being, Mother Nature, the universe, positive energy, “solar flares,” magnetic pole shifts, Schumann Resonance, 5th dimension, whatever it is, has come to take over the timeline and funnel us into the point of inevitability. Right now is an amazing time to tune into your synchronicity. A lot of clues are being laid around you right now for you to reach your higher self, to truly push the boundaries of your potential as a unique individual spirit. You are at the right place at the right time.
-Removal of the Federal Reserve = Freedom from taxes, higher incomes, better benefits. As life becomes more relaxed and leisurely, companies will be competing for your contract. Many other streams of revenue will be accessible.
-Limitless energy: it means the cost of everything plummets. Everything will become very cheap and affordable. I would even recommend people to start designing their dream homes now. Japan is already working on a prototype solar panel that can be placed in space which will have super high levels of energy output.
-As energy becomes free, costs of travel will become significantly reduced and new technologies (Pentagon black projects, recently converted into “Space Force” to be placed under public scrutiny and to disseminate the new technology that has been kept hidden from the masses) will be introduced that will increase the speed of travel to one hour, anywhere in the world. This will jumpstart the true form of globalism as you can work in any place that you want and live separately in any place as well.
-Spiritual awareness - We will all be gaining the ability to astral project! Keep your mind in good shape! Brain damage can make astral projection difficult!
-Life span will greatly increase. As you might have read the recent headline, scientists have cured a HIV patient, the 2nd time we were ever able to do so. Expect a lot more successful headlines in regards to medicine/science. It is actually happening already and a lot of it has to do with removing toxic CEOs and board directors who undermine breakthrough research that improves the human race for their own self-gain.
Resignations of the following CEOs from just the past couple months alone: CEO of Disney CEO of Tinder (why do you think people feel more lonely than ever even with dating apps? Algorithms in dating apps set you up for failure and addiction to maximize profits, but fortunately the corrupt masterminds behind these algorithms are being removed as we speak)
CEO of Hinge
CEO of OkCupid
CEO of Match
CEO of Hulu
CEO of MedMen
CEO of Victoria’s Secret
CEO of Salesforce
CEO of Harley Davidson
CEO of IBM
CEO of T-Mobile
CEO of LinkedIn
CEO of MasterCard
Board member Microsoft Bill Gates
Board member Berkshire Hathaway Bill Gates
CEO of Lockheed Martin
(Many of these were on the day after Weinstein’s arrest. A “checkpoint” that indicates their next move)
+many more in the past two months. In the past three years, resignations of notable CEOs and board members totaled over 11,000.
Where are all these CEOs going? To be honest, I already subtracted a lot of information from this single writeup alone just to condense it as much as possible and will have to unfortunately do the same here since it is a long explanation in itself. Please ignore all other theories and hypotheticals from other people in regards to the CEOs as many of them are starting to spread online. Vast disinformation campaigns are put into place to combat the growing truth.
All you really need to know is that the “good guys” have obtained enough leverage to force them all out.
Those who refuse to comply with resignation orders have a hidden scandal of theirs blown up on the news. This is why so many scandals have been coming to light, not just in the US, but worldwide.
Points I do not have the time to dive into but good to be mindful of:
-High rate of celebrities/politicians contracting coronavirus (involves the bio lab near Wuhan which produced illegal human enhancing chemical compounds) Keep note of their rapidly deteriorating health as they experience withdrawals on a grand scale -Joe Biden’s voter counts (please keep in mind that in 2016, Bernie supporters filed a joint class action lawsuit against the DNC for rigging the primaries and lost on the grounds that the DNC is a private institution and can choose to reveal results and delegates however they choose to do so) -Google/Facebook/other social media companies are uncensored now. Search results are showing authentic results that were once censored or removed from the top results before. #Pizzagate was actually trending on Twitter a couple days ago. -Here is a video from “Event 201” from October 2019 hosted by John Hopkins Center that involves Bill Gates, WHO, CDC, and other nonprofit powerhouses who conveniently set up an exercise dealing with the coronavirus just months prior: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoLw-Q8X174
Everything I have listed is verifiable and sourced. I am more than happy to provide any additional information that backs up any of my claims.
We are living in interesting times and things are just warming up! I could literally talk for days about the exciting things that have happened and are in development.
History is watching.
Where we go one, we go all.

Car Title Loans Guide
Is it possible that you may or may have heard of the term car title loans? Whether you are familiar with borrowing money from a financial institute or not, or you want to get more details about title loans, you will find all you need to know about taking a personal loan against your car title in this complete guide. When there is a pressing need or you are lacking sufficient funds, one way you can get access to cash is through personal loans with collateral. And a car title loan is a type of loan for people facing critical emergencies and is urgently in need of cash fast. In life, anything can happen, and these things pop up when we least expect. But, you can get quick cash loans whenever you are financially handicapped or in need of money fast to handle an important need.

Introduction To Title Loans

Getting a loan against your car or vehicle title as collateral is a good option if you are facing some challenges that require extra cash. The situation might be such that you need this quick loan as capital to start a new business, as extra support to settle some personal needs, a fund for your education or as standby cash for a medical emergency. As long as you need money fast to save you from any form of financial issue, pawning your car title for a cash advance will be a wise decision.
A car or vehicle, which is one possession that the majority of American citizens own, can be a means of rescue in times of urgent needs or in times when the cash at hand is just not enough. One of the great options to receive a quick cash loan during hard times when you need some money in your pocket is through a car title loan.

Title Loan Definition

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a loan as any amount of money that someone borrows over a period with a promise to pay back, usually with interest. According to Investopedia and Wikipedia’s definition, a car title loan is an example of a secured loan that you get by offering the title to your car or vehicle to the lender (the car title loan company) as collateral.
By approaching a loan lender to get a loan, you are giving the title pawn lender the legal right to place a lien on your car. That is, you will temporarily surrender your car title to the title loan company and the loan company grants you the loan amount. Your lender legally becomes the “lien holder” and holds on to the car title. There are several types of loan systems that several financial institutions issue out to individuals. These loans include; an open-ended loan, a closed-ended loan, a secured loan, and an unsecured loan. When it involves giving up an asset as collateral, then it is a secured loan. And the lender might end up taking ownership of the collateral if the borrower should fail to pay back the loan. Before we go further to see what a car title loan and how it works, let’s take a look at the origin and brief history of car title loans.

Car Title Loans History

Research by the Center for Responsible Lending and Consumer Federation of America shows that it was in the early 1990s that car title loans became popular in the financial world. It shares some similarities with PayDay Loans. Just as ten am implies, it is a form of secures loan which offers individuals with no hope of getting cash anywhere else a chance to get a loan against their car title. This then growing trend allowed individuals to have access to cash whenever they need it despite their financial status. Car title loans are now available both in physical offices and as online services.
Presently, several states have adopted the title loan system in one form or another. Some of these states include; Ohio, Delaware, Georgia, South Carolina, Idaho, Illinois, California, Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Online title loans are one of the recent ways of accessing fast cash when in need of financial assistance or when in a situation of financial emergency. Car title loans are stress-free to get and are always within your reach as long as you have a car that will qualify you. Now, let’s look at a general description of what car title loans are all about.

General Overview of Car Title Loans

A car title loan is an example of a secured loan where you get a loan by submitting the title to your car or vehicle, plus other title loan requirements to the lender or the car title loan company as collateral. This is quite similar to getting a conventional loan from a bank where an individual offers an asset (a house in most cases) as collateral. The collateral secures the bank against the risk of nonpayment of the loan and the bank could even decide to confiscate the asset if the borrower should fail to comply with the payment terms.
The lending company will only relinquish the car title to you when you pay up the loan (with interest) in full. In other words, you receive back your car title when you completely repay the loan to the auto title loan company. The lender will also remove the lien on your car or vehicle. It is important to note that auto title loans are not limited to cars or vehicles only. You can also use the titles of your other vehicles such as SUVs, motorcycles, trucks, trailers and recreational vans as collateral. Other names for car title loans are; pink slip loan, car title loan, auto title loans, car identity loan and vehicle title loan.

What Are Car Title Loans?

A car title loan (which is also referred to as “auto loan,” “title pawn loan”) is a short-term loan where the borrower offers his or her car title as collateral. It is a form of a secured loan. A car title (or pink slip) is a document that shows your ownership of a car. If you understand how pink slip loans work, then this type of loan system can be a way of escaping the dreaded debt cycle faced by most US citizens.
Unlike secured loans from conventional banks and credit unions, you do not give up your car. Rather, your car remains in your possession and you continue to use your car as long as you stick to the terms of the agreement. However, when you compare this loan acquisition process to that of other traditional lenders like banks and credit unions, you see that it is mild and involves fewer rigors.

How Does a Car Title Loan Work?

The way it works is very simple. To get a car title loan; first, you must outright own the car or have enough equity in the car. You would then consult a car title loan company. Approach the lending agency with your car title or a pink slip and apply for the loan. The loan company representative will proceed to check the year, make, model and general condition of the car in an inspection process. Although this application is available online, the information from this inspection will enable the loan firm to determine the loan amount they would lend you and also to determine what the resale value of the car might be.

You Don't Need An Excellent Credit Score For Title Loan

In general, the auto title loan company evaluates your car and lends you a percentage of its value. While some title loan companies offer you the title loan with no credit checks and no background employment checks, others will perform credit checks as well as check that you have a steady income that will ease your ability to pay back the loan. Usually, you do not need an excellent credit score to get a car title loan. Also, you do not need to be employed to be qualified for a car title loan. Though you should have a source of income to meet up prompt payments.
You might qualify for a loan up to 50% to 60% of the total resale value of your car. The title loan agency will only ask to hold on to the title until you fully pay back the loan. Then the auto loan company will document the title to the vehicle, and grant you your loan request after placing a lien on your car. Depending on the loan principal, interest rate and loan duration, a title loan calculator will be used to determine your repayment plan. And after complete payment, you reclaim your car title, lien-free. In most cases, a car title loan application can take as little as an hour. Processing auto title loan requests take less time than a traditional loan from a bank because of the elimination of a long period of credit checks and unnecessary paperwork.

In summary, here’s how car title loans work;

Though policies differ between states and most times, you must be living within the state before you can access this loan from a title lender. Do not worry if you have bad credit. Auto identity loans are basically for individuals with bad credit scores. You can pay off your loan anytime, and you get your car title back when you completely repay the loan (plus interest). Car title loans are the ideal solution for people with a bad credit score or no credit worth.

What is the loan limit?

When it comes to deciding on getting a quick cash loan through a vehicle identity loan, another essential question to ask after understanding how auto title loans work is “what amount can I borrow?” The minimum amount you can usually access is $2,500 up to about $50,000. So, the first concern should be to own a car that is worth at least $2,500.
The following determines the loan limit:
Most people are already familiar with car title loans or vehicle title pawns. However, some others are still ignorant of the fact that they can even get a loan against other types of automobiles that they own. Well, if you are one such person, then you are sure to find out about other forms of title loans and how they work. You can get a cash advance against the title of your motorcycle, truck or recreational van. And again, this process is easier than getting a loan from banks or credit unions using collateral. You may be reading this right now, wishing to rebuild your credit through the help of a title loan. Or that you need help with paying your bills on time, or you would like to learn about how to get an auto title loan, then you are also at the right place. For more understanding, you can also lookup motorcycle title loans, RV title loans from our website for more details.

Title Loan Interest Rates

Car title loans may be quite expensive than other alternative means of funding, but that should not discourage you from applying for an auto identity loan. Though the Department of Business Oversight controls and supervises the interest rate of pink slip loans, interest rates still vary between auto title pawn lenders. Typically, a lender gives a monthly interest rate with a 30 to 60 days’ duration.
It is possible to negotiate the payment plan with the car title lender. Hence, it is necessary to choose the best lending company that will adequately educate you as you make a financial decision, offer you a relatively lower interest rate, and also provide you the best title loan experience with no hidden charges whatsoever. So, if the question on your mind right now is “how high is the interest rate?” perhaps you should also ask the question “do I have any better option to raise the money urgently?”

Title Loan Payment plan

Car title loans are a short-term loan by the structure. And despite the title loan calculations, you can negotiate the duration to completely pay up the loan with your lender. While some lenders may give you a loan payment plan that takes a longer period, others may not. Most lenders could even permit you to make larger payments each month so that you can complete repayment even before the due date. Most individuals prefer taking out an advance and then splitting the payment into bits over a longer period. In this situation, as long as the borrower is sure to fully pay back the loan promptly and on schedule, the lender might not have a problem with the payment plan.
However, during this period, the lender will not have access to the car or vehicle title. Also, the lending company may not permit you to request an extra cash loan peradventure the need should arise. In plain terms, no pink slip for you until you fully repay the loan sum. It is also important to note that the more you prolong your payments, the more money you end up paying. The reason for this is because the title loan industry is a risky investment. The title loan company will charge you more each time you extend your payment. See our car title loans bad for details.

Title Loan Car inspection

Since your car title is the collateral for the loan, an inspection is a way of ensuring that you receive the maximum amount of your car’s worth. A car or vehicle inspection may reveal a higher value, hence, qualifying you for more cash. The inspection exercise will check the overall body condition of the car and if there are any dents, scratches, broken glass, scraps, broken lights on the body of the car. Also, the inspection will check to discover if any bodywork has been carried out in the car.
If the cars have been involved in accidents at any time, the inspection process will indicate it. If it has been modified in any way, the inspection will outline those modifications according to the code and specs. All these details count during the inspection process. Generally, during the inspection, a car title loan representative will check the roadworthiness of your car, the proof of ownership of the vehicle, and if you have an active insurance policy titled. The inspection will also indicate if your car or vehicle will value more and qualify you for more money, or otherwise.

Title Loans Without Car Inspection

Vehicle inspection is how you maximize the loan amount you could receive. You may apply for a small loan amount, thinking your car or vehicle is not worth much, yet, the inspection process may reveal a higher value, hence, qualifying you for more cash. It is possible to get a title loan without inspection. However, some individuals prefer to skip this stage not because they don’t have the car but due to some other reasons. Such as:

What The Inspection Involves

Title loans without inspection involve providing pictures showing the overall body condition of your car. Though, the physical inspection of the car is preferably by the title loan company. This is to ensure that the collateral is in good condition and that there are no significant damages to your car or vehicle. This also implies that you can get a loan against the title of an old car as long as it is still roadworthy.
A car that has never involved in an accident and its body is in good condition has the higher chances of getting a higher loan amount, while the one that has been involved in many accidents and having poor roadworthiness may not qualify you for a title loan or may just qualify for a lower amount. To take full advantage of every opportunity from your car for a title loan application, do the following;

What Qualifies You For A Car Title Loan

Once you own a car outright, you are already halfway through the entire process. A good title pawn lender will find out how much your car is worth and how much it will qualify you to access, and then carry on with the rest of the approval process. You can use your pink slip to get a loan. With car title loans California, you will be able to get you the funds the same day that you apply, within minutes.

Do I Give Up My Car?

No! You keep your car while you repay the loan. The truth is, as long as you do not default on the agreement, you continue to drive your car wherever and whenever you want. Contrary to the general assertion by many people that you lose your car when you get a car title loan, pawning your car title for a loan does not mean that you will give up your car or lose possession of your car. Instead, you still retain ownership of your car as long as you sustain the terms of the agreement.
The only thing you hand over is your car title or a pink slip. That is, you temporarily tender the ownership (car title or pink slip) of your car until you fully pay back the loan. As long as you do not default the repayment agreement, you still drive your car.

Title Loan Laws

A publication by the New York Times states that a lot of customers take out auto title loans yearly, but very few states document these statistical records. And in 2011, the California Finance Lenders Law established legislation that permits licensed companies and organizations to give short-term loans that are secured by titles to automobiles
The laws, which differ from state to state, cover specific areas of title loans like; interest rates, administrative charges, and repossession. These laws according to the Department of Business Oversight in California put title pawn lenders in check at all times with legal guidelines about the dos and don’ts of car title loans.

Are Car Title Loans Bad?

The argument about whether car title loans are good or not has long been of great concern to many. To some, it is a means to stabilize their financial status, while for others, it is simply an extortion system. There are pros and cons to car title loans. To find out more about these advantages and disadvantages, see the post “Are Car Title Loans Bad?”
An auto title loan allows individuals with poor credits as well as individuals who may not have easy access to borrowing money when in desperate need the opportunity to enjoy access to money fast. So, instead of being among the crowd who believe it is bad, why not discover the truth about car title loans yourself. Life is indeed full of uncertainties. You stand a better chance of enjoying the best title loan experience when you understand what to expect as well as what to be wary about in a car title loan. Especially, what happens if a borrower defaults.

What Happens If Someone Defaults?

When a borrower defaults, the title loan lender could;
  1. Decide to contact the borrower or
  2. Impound the car at any time and anywhere
When you apply for a car title loan, you sign a lien which gives the lender the legal right over your car. The only condition where a title loan company returns the title to you is when you fully repay the loan amount plus interest.

What Is A Default

A default is when a borrower fails to comply with the loan terms of the agreement with the lender. These conditions that lead to default are always part of the agreement details. Repossession is the next obvious thing that occurs if you fail to pay up a loan or comply with the payment plan. When you default, you could lose your car. When a borrower defaults, the lender may either decide to contact the borrower to come up with a better way to repay the loan or immediately proceed to repossess the car.

What Does Repossession Means

If a lender seizes your car when you default, it is called repossession. On account of a default, the repossession officer can show up anytime and anywhere seize your car. Different lenders work with different policies. And the lender is responsible for all the repossession expenses. So, while some lenders will not hesitate to impound your car, others may offer to assist you until you successfully repay the loan in full.

Make Your Decision

Whether or not a car title loan is bad depends on a whole lot of factors. For example; individuals are different, and so are their financial situations. For some persons, taking out a title cash advance could be a great option, while to some others, it would not be a wise decision. Priorities could also affect the choice of whether to take out a title loan or not. Some events may require quick funding, others could linger and not cause any damaging effect. Other alternatives to getting a loan may not be as quick and straightforward as an auto identity loan. Conventional lenders may take you through depressing procedures, and sometimes, even end up turning down your loan request.
Rather than face disappointments or embarrassments from friends and family when you are financially stranded, or approach a conventional lender for a cash advance that they are likely to turn down, if you can easily afford the interest charges and payments, it is preferable to use auto title loans as a short term loan for emergencies. However, it is important to note that anybody who decides to get a title loan is quite confident to fully pay back the loan. But sometimes, due to some unforeseen circumstances (like bankruptcy), life may play out in such a way the person would fail to complete payments.

F.A.Q About Car Title Loans

What Would Be the Payment Amount?

The amount of money you pay (plus interest) will depend on three basic factors;
This amount will be established using a title loan calculator and agreed upon with your lender.

What If I Decide to Sell My Car?

You can sell a car tied to a title loan, but you have to fully clear the lien in the car. Sometimes, your car could break down, or you may want to borrow against the value of your car, such that, the next logical step toward balance your finances would be to completely sell off your car. Taking this decision to sell your car implies that you will have to set a selling price high enough to pay off the balance on your loan account. You will have to agree with your lending company to settle the debt with the proceeds from the sales. That means you will also have to pre-inform the title loan lender on time. Once you clear the loan completely, then you will be able to retrieve the title which you can transfer to the buyer.

Is It Possible to Get Car Title Loans with No Credit Check?

Yes! You can get a loan on your car title with no credit checks, but most times, this policy leaves the customer in a debt cycle, at risk of defaulting and even in a situation of losing their car. Usually, before your loan request is approved, the car title loan company will do some inspections, verification, and checks to ascertain the loan amount you can get, as well as your ability to repay the loan completely and on schedule.
Though your credit score is not a deciding factor, the reason for the checks is to know that your income can support the loan. This policy is the reason for our unbeatable success rate and a pool of happy and satisfied customers.

How Do I Get My Title Back?

You will get back your car title as soon as you repay the amount due on your loan account in full. It’s a guarantee! Learn more about Title Loan at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Title_loan

What is the Maximum Loan Amount I can Get?

The amount of the loan depends on the value of the car. The more the value of your, the higher the loan you can receive. Usually, you can get between $2,500 and $50,000. Visit our F.A.Q page to find out more about a car title loan.

2020.01.18 15:17 s810 Old Austin Tales: Attack of the Airships - Spring of 1897

Lord, don't I wish I had a photo of the subject of today's story. You'll have to bear with me. Lots of descriptive 19th century newspaper articles coming through.
Today I bring you some Austin UFO stories from 50 years before the Roswell incident of 1947. I've seen and participated in a few discussions about this topic here before, but some new shit has come to light, so I've got to get this one off my chest. The acronym "U.F.O." gets taken for granted as something extra-terrestrial but it really means anything flying that's unidentified. Besides something alien, in today's world that could be anything from a weird looking drone or an Air Force test plane, or even a Chinese lantern.
There comes a time when technological progress advances to a point where the materials needed to invent something new and great are available to many people at once, so you end up with different people inventing things like the telephone, or the television, at roughly the same time. That's also kind of what happened with human flight. A few years before the Wright Brothers glided over a beach in North Carolina and before the Germans perfected the Zeppelin, there were apparently a few different people flying around the country in what was at the time referred to as "mystery airships". By most accounts these were cigar shaped craft, sometimes with elaborate sails or wings mimicking those of many different bird species, that could carry passengers and/or cargo flown over great distances. If you saw one today you would probably call it a blimp with wings, but it was really more like a floating paddleboat. Back in the late 1800s the thought of attaching a mechanical engine, whether steam or oil powered, to a balloon to guide it places was experimental and revolutionary. Different types of airships began test flights over Europe in the 1860s and by the 1880s there were Americans doing it too, although it would be more accurate to say these early inventors had very little idea what they were doing at all. They were basically trying out different forms of balloons with accessories more than inventing the blimp. But one thing is for sure, when these things would "fly"/float over anywhere near a populated area they would scare the crap out of the public and become the talk of the area for weeks. These were the UFOs of their time; some people thought they were from Mars. 123 years ago these things captivated The City of Austin when they began appearing over our violet crowned skies. There were more than a few sightings, locally, statewide, and nationally, and the Statesman of the time covered most of it. One Statesman reporter even had a sighting himself. The Legislature was freaking out over how to regulate them, and there was an incident at The Driskill. But as usual I'm getting ahead of myself.
The most famous incident during the "mystery airship" wave of 1896-1897 is probably the Aurora, TX UFO incident. To quickly sum it up, an airship with an alien visitor on board is supposed to have crashed after hitting a windmill in the small North Texas town of Aurora on April 17, 1897. The "martian" was said to have died from the crash, and was buried in an unmarked grave in the local graveyard.
That's a very important date to remember: April 17th, 1897. The following day on the 18th, the Statesman announced a "Strange and Startling" discovery. A few years ago Michael Barnes did a writeup on this in the Statesman, from which I quote:
Balloon? Airplane? UFO? What flew over Texas — including Austin — with searchlights in April 1897?
Bob Ward of the Travis County Historical Commission drew our attention to this airborne mystery. We’re not suggesting aliens, but the reports fit the definition of an “unidentified flying object.”
A headline in the April 18, 1897, Austin Daily Statesman shouted “Strange and Startling: A ‘What Is It?’ Serenely Sailing over the Blessed Long Star State.” Texans in Sherman, Fort Worth, Hillsboro, Marshall and Paris spotted unusual objects in the night sky. This was six years before the Wright Brothers took off from Kitty Hawk, N.C., and 50 years before an unexplained object crashed in Roswell, N.M.
On April 26, the Daily Statesman reported that airship had made another appearance, this time behind Mount Bonnell traveling north. “At least, three young men who were camping up on Bull Creek at Huddle’s Point say they saw it. Messrs. Geo. Powell, Ted Tobin and Jas. Caldewell went up the lake Saturday afternoon for a couple of days’ camp and pitched their tents. ... About 3 a.m. it began to rain and the men were compelled to get up and fasten the tent. It was at this time they saw the mysterious aircraft. They claim it was in sight fully 15 minutes and are positive they could not be mistaken. At intervals of every few seconds, it would throw its searchlights, and the boys say the light looked as big as four ordinary arc lights.”
Of course, those interested in UFOs have not let the subject of the 1897 aircraft go. An April 15, 2016, story in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reached back to revive the tale of an airship that crashed into a windmill, “killing a spaceman,” in the North Texas town of Aurora on April 17, 1897. (In other words, before the Austin sighting.)
The town recently celebrated the crash with an event called the Aurora Alien Encounter with talks and shuttle tours, including a stop at the cemetery where the alien nicknamed “Ned” was supposedly buried.
This 2017 Statesman article was I think the first time I had heard of this story. So the same night a UFO allegedly crashed in Aurora, airship(s) were seen all over North Texas. The Statesman of 1897 reports on that, but then eight days later comes another report of some boys seeing an airship near Mt. Bonnell. Well come to find out that was only one of many local airship stories dating back to that Spring and Summer of 1897 in the old Statesman archive, and not even the best one in my opinion. Allowing for the yellow-journalism tendencies of The Statesman and newspapers in general at the time, some of the reports are made with intricate detail by otherwise credible people from all walks of life, while others seem obviously a hoax too fantastical to be believed.
I'm just going to go through Statesman articles in chronological order. We will start in 1896 with a bit more backstory:

May 31, 1896 - A New Flying Machine

Prof. Samuel P. Laughley's Successful Flying Machine.
Professor Langleys has invented a flying machine which is a success. At Occoquan, Va.. near Washington, D. C. the Smithsonian Institute Professor recently tested this machine to his complete satisfaction. The machine rose 200 feet in the air and flew steadily for half a mile. Fuel in the engine then gave out and the machine sunk gently to the ground. The flying machine carries a small steam engine of one-horse power. The whole contrivance weighs twenty-five pounds. Its light steel frame work holds extended horizontally three sheets of thin canvas. one above the other. The length over all is fifteen feet. The engine runs two propellers.
The machine could fly 100 miles, or even a much greater distance with a sufficient, supply of steam. But the small engine employed is not of the condensing pattern and has no means of using the same water over again.
...

October 2, 1896 - Flies Like a Bird

Remarkable Success of the Lamson AirShip at Portland, Ma.
Big machine rises steadily to an altitude of six hundred feet and then gracefully settles to the ground again. A New York Sun special from Portland. Maine. Charles H. Lamson performed a feat here the other day practically demonstrating that a large airship or kite capable of carrying a man can be floated successfully and steadily. He raised his ship with a dummy man on it 600 feet. The retaining rope broke when the ship was at that altitude. Had it not been for this break, Mr. Lamson would have sent up a man to navigate his ship. As it was, W. A. Eddy, of Bayonne, NJ. an authority on aerial experiments, declared that Lamson'a achievement was the greatest step toward solving the problem of aerial navigation of the age. Two records, at all events, Lamson made. He flew the largest kite or airship ever floated. He carried by mean of this kite the heaviest weight to the greatest altitude on record. Tbe kite which made the flight is an invention of Mr. Lamson and is called "The Lamson Airship." The kite, when in the air, resembles two large, oblong j boxes parallel to each other and attached to each other in the middle. It took 15 men to carry the kite or ship into the field from which it was to be sent up. The cord tested to a pull of 500 pounds This was made fast to a reel and four men attended to it. About 400 feet of the rope was run out along the ground, and at a signal from Mr. Lamson the snip was released. It quivered a m ment and then steadily rose skyward. Seated on the car of this ship was a dummy weighted to 150 pounds. The ship rose to an altitude of 600 feet, and was rising steadily, "when, with a sudden gust of wind, snap went the rope, showing what a tremendous pressure was brought upon it by the soaring of the ship. The ship floated out a half mile and descended as easily and gracefully as it went up. Had a man been in the car he would not have been harmed in the slightest.

November 23, 1896 - An Airship Sure Enough!

Frisco lawyer says one is perfected and has had a successful trial.
San Francisco, Nov. 22. The Chronicle printed a story which would indicate that the airship in practical form is at established fact. About 1 o'clock last Monday morning. the inhabitants of Sacramento who astir at that hour claim to have seen an airship passing rapidly over the city (Some merely say they saw a bnght light, while others went so far as to say they saw a cigar shaped flying machine and heard human voices from it.) The residents of Oakland also say they same the same sight. The story of the mysterious airship ha been told all over tin state and has created considerable amusement, as it was generally believed to he a hoax.
...
So you can see that at least a few people were experimenting with airships in various forms at that time. This brings us to 1897, and the first incident mentioned in the 2017 Statesman article. This was written the day after the Aurora incident but doesn't mention Aurora by name.

April 18, 1897 - Strange And Startling

What is it serenely sailing over the blessed Lone Star State? Be it a big airship or something else seen in the heavens at various North Texan points.
Keep a Watch Out Here. Of late strange sights have been witnessed in the heavens and some day ago.
The Statesman obtained a dispatch saying that an airship or something of that sort had been seen sailing over Oklahoma. Now the mysterious aerial craft has been seen at various points in Texas and from all accounts it is a fast sailer. Friday night at Sherman, Mr. W. S. Hellyer, cashier of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad, saw a mysterious oval-shaped object of large proportions plass over the moon. On the same night, Conductor W. M. Honney of Fort Worth, his wife and mother saw a strange object pass over the city.
On the same night Hon. J. S. Bound of Hillsboro, on his way to visit a sick friend, had an experience he will not forget soon. He was jogging alone quietly, when suddenly his horse whirled around and came near overturning the buggy. There was a brilliant light, as if coming from an arc light. This light, he says rested on him less than a minute and then he saw it gliding over a field nearby. It then turned upward and he watched it until he says it must have been 1000 feet in in the air. The light appeared to him to be the headlight of some kind of it ship. While he watched, the light went out and small ones such a incandescent lights, appeared all around the body of the vessel, or whatever it was.
The strange craft sailed slowly in a southernly direction and while Mr. Bounds watched it all the lights were extinguished and then it disappeared.
On the same night, about 2 o'clock, J. A. Black of Paris, Tx., night watchman at the Paris Oil and Cotton company's plant, observed a faint but luminous body in the northeast heavens. It looked at first like a luminous cloud, but as it drew nearer he saw it was some, huge monster. He hurried over to the cabin of a negro named Jim Smith and woke him up, and when Jim caught sight of the heavenly visitor his wool promptly straightened out and Jim piously went to praying. Mr. Black watched the object carefully, and to a Dallas News reporter he said its body was shaped something cigar, and appeared to be 200 feet long. It carried sails and attachments that looked like great fans. It finally disappeared, going in the direction of the Mississippi river. Mr. Black's dog was with himi when he first discovered the monster and he was greatly agitated and moaned until the thing disappeared.
On the same night Conductor Virgil Brown and his brakeman on the Texas-Pacilic Railroad saw the curious monster near Jewella. La., about thirty miles east of Marshall. It appeared to have a search light attached to it that threw out rays in several directions. It appeared to be going in the direction of Marshall and traveled faster than his train. On the same night at Marshall, Marshal Dick Wentberby. night watchman at the Pacific Railroad shops, saw the monster pass over. From Jewella to Hillsboro is some 300 or 400 miles, and the ship being seen at both places only a few hours apart shows it is a traveler. Whence is it? 'What is it and whither is it going, anyhow? Are we living in the days when strange sights are to appear in the heavens?
From this point onward the word was out that these things were being seen in Texas. What follows in the coming days in the Statesman seems like borderline mass hysteria.

April 20, 1897 - Rickety Airship

The report that Deputy Sheriff Thorp and Uncle Dick Boyce, afraid of the airship, were sleeping in the boiler room at the court house, is untrue. They stay in the basement of the Capitol. No weak boiler room for them with a rickety airship sailing overhead.

April 20, 1897 - The Heavenly Mystery

Possible soldiers from warlike Mars out on a terrestrial reconnoiter
An astronomical theory about the mysterious stranger as seen in Chicago. The celestial craft the talk of the town.
The great and mysterious aerial vessel that has thrown north Texas and many parts of the country into a state of excitement and commotion, was first seen sailing over Kansas, but the stories about it did not excite much attention. Since then, however, the mysterious stranger has been seen in many parts of the country, and Friday night last reputable citizens in scores of Texas towns had a view of the aerial vehicle. It has traveled over Illinois, Indiana, Iowa. Wisconsin, Arkansas, Louisiana and other states, and everywhere has excited great curiosity and in some places provoked consternation. On Friday night, April 9, the strange light skirted over the northern border of Chicago and could be seen, according to the numerous reports of residents in that neighborhood. A great crowd gathered at the corner of Milwaukee and Oakley avenues and gazed at the object, trying to figure out to their satisfaction what it might be. It was an "airship" for lack of a better name to designate it by, but most were skeptical about the identity of the "manifestation." It was said the object looked very much like a balloon, but the "red light" was plainly discernible. Many of the people mounted the roofs in the neighborhood and all the field glasses in the vicinity were called into play.
...
In Texas:
The strange craft seen at many points in North and East Texas Friday night has thrown those parts of the state into a whirl of excitement. Col. R. N. Burt, cashier of the National Bank of Ladonia, Texas, saw the craft, or whatever it is, last Friday night. His description varies very little from that of others, only that it appeared much larger to him, as he says that it seemed to be about 300 feet long, its wiungs being enormous and looking like huge sails. It seemed to hover for a short time over the city and then rise and go rapidly in a southwesterly direction. At Farmersville, Texas, Friday night, as reported in the Dallas News, about 9 o'clock a dim tight was seen in the northwest, apparently moving slowly to the south or southeast. When first seen it did not look larger than an ordinary 30-cent silver piece. Those watching it soon discovered that the object was approaching the city. It traveled; at the rate of sixty or eighty miles an hour. Some thought it to lie a cloudless tornado, and those who had storm houses lost no time in getting into them, whilst the more unfortunate waited and watched the result, of the approach of the queer object. In a very short time fully two-thirds of the citizens of the city were out looking at what they then supposed to be a large planet or meteor approaching the earth. In a few moments, in fact, in less time than one can tell it, the queer thing was almost hanging over the city. City Marshal Brown was in the western part or the city making his rounds before going home and says the ship or balloon passed over him about 200 feet from the ground. Mr. Brown says he could see two men in the ship and something resembling a large Newfoundland dog. Mr. Brown says he was close enough to hear them talking, but could not understand one word of their language.
Mr. Walter L. Norwood, an undertaker at Galveston, had a professional call about 3 o'clock Saturday morning, and he says he and his driver. Bob Tevis, saw the airship and said to a Galveston news reporter: "The moon was shining brightly, and we could see almost as fully as in daylight. There was not a cloud in the sky. When we were out on the beach not far from our destination I happened- to look up and saw the thing. It moved to the eastward down the beach, following the line of the beach as closely as one would do in driving a buggy. We stopped and watched it. When down about the end of the island it turned and followed the bay front until almost Tremont street, when it turned and went south out over the gulf, disappearing in the distance." It was pointed at both ends, according to Mr. Norwoods description, and the headlight was directly in front. It looked like a great big bird, with wings flapping regularly and it traveled swiftly.
Statesman's Mystery Man.
The mystery man of The Statesman heard yesterday that Mr. R.H. Cousins had caught a glimpse of the mysterious ship Friday night, and Mr. Cousins was seen about it. 'No, I saw no ship," he said. "I stepped out into my yard and my attention was attracted by a moving light which appeared to lie some distance above the earth, not far from the residence of Mr. J. W. Graham. I first I thought it was a meteor, but I soon discovered it moved too slow for a meteor. In the light was not very large, I think possibly I could have covered it with my hand. I watched it as it moved and it passed over and down in the direction of Shoal Creek. I saw no dark object, nor anything that resembled a ship; I saw nothing but the light, and at the time thought nothing about it. The story, as reported, was that Mr. Cousins had seen a large ship-like shape, with the light attached to it. To the Statesman's gang last night the mystery man, to the utter consternation of the boys, gave it as his unalterable opinion that there was something in this airship business. "Where there's so much smoke there must be some fire," he said. "So many reports, from so many different points can not be fabrications. People may say what they will, but there's something in it."
The gang was visibly moved. "It is my opinion," continued the mystery man, "that the airship, so-called, is nothing more nor less than a reconnoitering aerial war car from warlike Mars, investigating the Conditions of the United States to see what reinforcements we'll need when the country is invaded by the allied armies of Europe, the Mars soldiers having no confidence whatever In the American jingoes as real fighters," "With these soldiers of Mars cavorting around over our heads, do you think there is any danger to us of the earth?" asked the gang in concert,' "I most emphatically do.
Last Thursday night one of their aerial boats exploded, and scraps of steel and piece of electric wire were found on the school house, the roof of which workmen were repairing. They heard an explosion during the night, and just before it took place the aerial vehicle was seen sailing through the air. There is great danger in venturing out these nights. What if one of those fellows from Mars should tumble out and fall on you ? The city editor and telegraph man were profoundly impressed, and last night they slept under a table in the editorial rooms.

April 21, 1897 - Shadbolt gets a package at the Driskill

Say, you people all know Shadbolt, manager of the Driskill, and are acquainted with his reputation for veracity? The fact that he is in the category with George Washington in this line, inclines me to take stock in these airship yarns that are at present flooding the country. Shad asserts that while on the roof of the hotel last Monday night engaged in taking clothes off the line, he was astonished first by a peculiar sizzling noise, followed immediately by a biff, bang, whiz, and a current of cold air that chilled him to the marrow. Dodging behind a chimney pot, he saw coming towards him a frightfully constructed cigar-shaped balloon, or something of that character.
His heart was in bis throat for a moment, but swallowing it with an effort, be sang out: 'Ship ahoy!' A voice replied: 'Howde? Is this Austin?' 'You're bloody right,' yelled Shad, whereupon the main guy on that flying monster called out: 'Stand by you lubbers, and let go that freight'. Something struck the roof, and the startled manager says as the thing went out of sight there was a man sitting cross-legged on the quarter deck, working a concertina. and grinding out the music of 'Me 'Art Is True to Poll,' (???) In the bundle, which smelled of stale fish and a few decayed things of that kind, was a note stating that the ship was en route to China, but would return in October next, by which time the writer hoped the Texas legislature would have passed all the blooming (democrat) platform demands formulated at Fort Worth. Now Shadbolt will not deny bis fondness for potted cheese and a bleeding glass of 'alf and 'alf, but be says neither of these appetizers had the slightest connection with his experience on the roof. He's got the note, and the brick that came with it, and will take pleasure in showing it to his friends.

April 21, 1897 - Weary Man Sick of Hearing About Airship

A weary man: "Can yon direct me to a boarding house where they do not talk of the airship?"

April 24, 1897 - Airship Resolution

Proposal to have the commission regulate them.
Yesterday morning, in a spirit of fun, Mr. Brigance offered the following resolution about airships: "Whereas, There is an airship sailing around Texas, carrying freight and passengers; and whereas the owners or incorporators of said airship pay no taxes for said traffic; and whereas, the railroad commission have been derelict in their duty in fixing rates tor said airship; and whereas, The State of Texas is badly in need of fund to run the state government; therefore,
Be it resolved that the advocate of revenue measures. Hon. J. T. Curry, the representative from Van Zandt county, is hereby requested to be the master of making rates for the government of said airship before the Railroad Commission of Texas and request that said commission proceed at once to make rates and charges for the transportation of passengers and freight in Texas, and in default of the payment of said rates, said commission shall apply to the Justice of the Peace of Precinct No. 1, Travis County, and procure an attachment and proceed to levy the same upon said airship for the purpose of collecting said rates, etc.
Now comes the second instance mentioned in the 2017 article.

April 26, 1897 - Airship Again

The airship made its appearance again early yesterday morning. At least three young men who were camping up on Bull creek, at Huddle's point, say they saw it. Messrs. Geo. Proctor, Ted Tobin and Jno. Caldwell went up the hike Saturday afternoon for a couple of days camp, and pitched their tents at Huddle's point. About 3 o'clock yesterday morning it began to rain, and the young men were compelled to get up and fasten their tent. It was at this time they saw the mysterious air craft. They claim it was in sight fully fifteen minutes and are positive they could not have been mistaken. At intervals of every few seconds it would throw its searchlight, and the boys say the light looked as big a four ordinary arc lights. It made its appearance from behind Mount Bonnell and traveled north. The boys broke camp last afternoon they say because it was raining so hard, but that mysterious light probably made the rain seem wetter than usual.

April 27, 1897 - Another Airship Again

It seems impossible to hide anything from the "argus eyes and ears" of a Statesman reporter. Mr. Teagarden of Teagarden & Shumate, "The Peacemakers," has been in "telepathic" communication with the inhabitants of Mars for some time past. In fact his summer location on the summits of various mountains in Colorado has been the means of enabling him to adopt a system of telepathic communication, and he intimates that "the airship" now voyaging around us is for the purpose of discovery, and not war, as some suppose. The ship is named "The Peacemaker" and is now used in the interest of his manufacturing centers of goods kept by this firm and perfect such arrangements as may be necessary for their interests. Upon his return early in May, Mr. Teagarden designs taking a trip over the eastern continent as a guest of the representatives of the fiery planet. No alarm need be felt by the inhabitants of Earth as the appearance of the ship only betokens peace. In fact, wars are a thing of the past in Mars, and the art is lost with them.

April 27, 1897 - Airship Located

It is en-route to Cuba to scatter dynamite for Wyler's forces.
A carefully planned expedition left for Cuba last night from near Sea Isle, N. J. The supply of arms and ammunition left New York Saturday on lighters and was placed on a tug between Barengal and Long Branch. The tug came steadily down the coast and was soon joined by another boat. In the way of munition, the expedition took along a Hotchkiss gun. 1000 rifles, 13000 rounds of ammunition, 2000 machetes, a lot of medicine and what is known as an experimental flying machine adapted to the use of dynamite.

April 29, 1897 - Airship Seen Here

It passed over the city yesterday morning in a rain.
Moved Slowly, Plainly Visible
Seen by more than one person. Work of Hiram Wilson, son of the master-mechanic for the New York Central (Railroad).
The airship, carrying a large headlight, passed over the city yesterday morning, apparently about 300 or 400 feet above the earth. It moved slowly at first, traveling in a northwesterly direction, but its speed seemed to lie greatly increased when it reach a point probably over Shoal creek. A gentleman out north of the capitol saw it, and a colored man living on Robertson Hill had a sight of the aerial visitor. A fine view of it was had by Mr, Otto F. Porsch, an intelligent and wholly reliable gentleman living at the corner of Colorado and Second streets and doing a grain and feed business at 402 East Sixth street. He is well known and has a large circle of friends. A Statesman reporter saw Mr. Porsch at his place of business yesterday, and he told the following story: "I was aroused from my sleep by my dogs barking and growling, and I went to a window and looked out. It was very cloudy and dark, and I saw the glare of a big light on the clouds. I thought a large fire was in progress and hastily put on my clothes and went out into the yard to see where it was. As I opened the door to go out, my young dog, greatly scared at something, pushed by me and went into the house. My old dog stayed in the yard, and I noticed he was barking at something overhead, and I looked up and saw great light slowly moving over the Salge Hotel. It was coining from the southeast and moved in a northwesterly direction. It appeared to me to be about 300 or 400 feet above the hotel, and it traveled very slow, the light being so blinding that I could not see the shape of the vehicle or whatever it was carrying it, I watched it carefully, and after it had gone some distance and has passed me, I could see the shape of the rear end of the vessel, and it appeared to be in this shape." And Mr. Forsch arranged his hands in a V shape, somewhat like the tail of a fish. "It was still moving very slowly, but as I watched 1 saw a movement on each side of it like a bird flap ping its wings, and its speed was once greatly increased, and I watched it until it disappeared, which was not long after it began to increase its speed. It was drizzling a little, and it rained pretty hard after the light disappeared. Asked if he saw any colored lights, he said "No, I did not. It was a very large, ordinary light and very blinding until it passed me." Mr. Porsch said that a gentleman living out north of the capitol told him yesterday forenoon that he had seen the ship at the same time Mr. Porseh did. Mr. Porsch said: "After it had disappeared I went buck into the house and looked at the clock, and it was exactly fifteen minutes after 4." A colored man named Gray saw the ship as it passed over yesterday morning.
The Galveston News of yesterday contained a story that the vessel landed in Uvalde a few days ago near the residence of Sheriff H. W. Baylor. Two men were aboard, with whom Mr. Baylor talked, one of them giving bis name as Wilson, and he said be had lived in Fort Worth, and the News of yesterday confirmed bis story and shows he did live in the Panther city, where he worked on an arship.

May 2, 1897 - Letter to Sheriff Baylor of Uvalde

A gentleman in this city has written Sheriff Baylor of Uvalde for the particulars of the airship he boarded and inspected at Uvalde.

May 4, 1897 - Cripple Creek Airship

The airship has been heard from at Cripple Creek. The information comes through a letter dropped from the airship. The letter states that there are three person in the airship, and that they are out of water and can not make a landing on the earth and have given up in despair. A man who could invent such an airship a that would have the ingenuity to condense water from the clouds, but the whole thing about the airship seems to be getting to be "in nubibus." (?)

May 4, 1897 - Airship demonstrated at Nashville

A sure enough airship
A Practical Demonstration Given at the Nashvllle Exposition
Today at the Tennessee Exposition, Professor Arthur Barnard, physical instructor of the Young Men's Christian Association of Nashville, began a jonrney in an airship constructed by himself. Professor Barnard promised to sail against the wind after arising into the air, and he did so. The airship will be continued in use at the exposition. Professor Barnard said he would land at the starting point tonight. The ship is 4 feet long and 20 feet in diameter

May 11, 1897 - Travis County Man Knows How To Build An Airship, But Won't

In a burst of confidence yesterday, Uncle Dick Boyce informed a Statesman reporter that Joe Costa had seen an airship sailing majestically through the deep blue heavens.
Joe was hunted up and asked if he saw the aerial mystery.
"I have not seen an airship, nor do I want to see one," he indignantly said. "If I wanted to see an airship I'd build one and be done with it. I know exactly how one should be constructed. You know I've watched buzzards and a ship modeled after them will fly"
...

May 23, 1897 - Webberville Airship

It was seen in Austin and Webbervllle Friday night.
Friday night, about 12:30 o'clock, Mr. O'Brien, the Associated Press operator in the Statesman office, while standing on the gallery in front, saw what was evidently the airship, or at least the mysterious aerial body that has been seen several times in these parts. Mr. O'Brien watched it about a half minute, and then hastened to the window and called to the telegraph editor to come quick. The latter, although mentally absorbed in the interesting St. Louis produce market, hastened to the gallery, but when he got there the airship had passed out of view behind the business buildings southeast of the office. Both watched for some minutes in vain, and then returned to their work, the operator with a puzzled look, and the telegraph editor with an incredulous smile flitting across his face. They resolved not to say anything about it till next day, to see if any other night hawk had seen anything of the sort. Yesterday word came from Webberville announcing that John T. McCall, a prominent citizen of that section, had seen the airship about 10 o'clock Friday night. It was sailing very low, and he had a good view of it. He said it looked to be about fifty feet long, and was brilliantly lighted, looking something like a steamboat at night. This description tallies exactly with Mr. O Brien's description. There is about two and a half hour s difference in the time the two men saw it, but this could be easily accounted tor. There is evidently something prowling about the heavens in this neck of the woods, whether it is an airship or some other illuminated body.

June 2, 1897 - Legislature Sees An Airship

Along about 10 o'clock some enthusiastic member saw what be thought was an air ship hovering over the university, and in a many seconds as it take to tell it, all the dear solons were rubbernecking toward the airship. The House and Senate both were nearly disbanded in their vain endeavor to see the airship. It could be plainly seen hovering over the university, and the members spent some time in discussing exactly how the ship was operated. They will probably not feel so cheerful in the morning when they discover that the impossible airship that excited their admiration was but a kite -an aeroplane- the university professors were operating for the purpose of trying to secure electrical experiments. The horse is on the solons, and they might as well give in.
Well I'm almost out of space but I think you get the picture. It goes on like this throughout the summer of 1897 and into 1898 when primitive airships were used in the Spanish-American war. There is an old truism that says necessity is the mothers milk of invention, but I have always said ubiquity does the same thing. In this case it seems to fit, the materials for flight were available everywhere and a few visionaries put it together. As for all the Austin sightings, I can't say who it was or what they were trying to do. But I do think if even one of those sightings was real then there is probably a chapter on human flight in some history books that needs a little expanding.
No Bonus Pics today I'm afraid. I hope to make it up to you next time.
