Open Forum Friday, August 14th, 2020: The Hurdy Gurdy

Open Forum Friday, August 14th, 2020: The Hurdy Gurdy

This is an amazingly beautiful version of the Hurdy Gurdy.

Happy Friday Snorkles! Welcome to the Open Forum Friday any topic you like post.
I hope everyone is as safe and healthy as they can be in these trying times this year. It's been tough having to stay at home the entire summer for sure. I know it's been an abrupt change from my normal routine, like camping, go karting, the museum, swimming at the quarry, etc, etc. So having to spend so much time indoors has made me notice the types of music I listen to, and why I listen to it, and when. I started noticing the mood I would be in with each genre of sounds and voices and beats. Enya to lift my spirits, the Eagles to relax and have a drink, some nice slow jazz to have a date night with the wife (bow-chicka-wow-wow). I listen to all kinds of music these days, from early classical to EDM and everywhere in between. So to my surprise, I found something new, something I had never heard of or seen before a couple of months ago.
Today, I would like to show you a little about an instrument I never knew existed. It's called a Hurdy Gurdy. The sounds this can produce are amazing, it's like several instruments all in one depending on how it's being played. This (rock & roll) is an example of a Hurdy Gurdy being played with two bass drums, one outfitted with a snare strip. Get your head bang on (3 minutes). This (classical) is more of a Tim Burton take of a beautiful Hurdy Gurdy being played alone that looks like a dragon!!! Very relaxing (3 minutes, cool video).
It's like a guitar-accordian-piano-old-timey-squeeze-box kinda thing...and I love it! I understand it might not be everyones cup of tea and that's fine. What is your thing then? Who/what do you like to listen to? Do/did you play an instrument? Feel free to let us know. As a kid, I was always tapping out beats on my desk at school and on my brothers drums at home. Recently, I have fallen in love with the hand pan drum. I'll let you look that one up yourself if you want to. I will be ordering one for my 50th birthday next month, I'm going to call it my midlife crisis purchase. I have always wanted one, so it should be a small price to pay for the peace and happiness it brings me I'm sure.

Two cowboys are lost in the desert. One cowboy sees a tree that’s draped in bacon. “A bacon tree! We’re saved!” He says, as he runs to the tree and is shot instantly several times, and dies.
It wasn’t a bacon tree, it was a hambush.
************
We had 15 posts for this weeks Weekly Theme, a few of my favorites were Montey Hall Paradox by u/RIPVector, I have never played 3 card monty before.

2020.08.08 01:38 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of the letter ‘S’ in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of the letter ‘S’ under Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hqko0y/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_gi_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters J-L on July 15, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hrq9bg/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_jl_of_jeffrey/).
I posted letter M on July 20, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/huw0yt/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letter_m_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters N-Q on July 27, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hyudbz/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letters_nq_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I posted letter R on July 29, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/i0aqxd/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_the_letter_r_in_jeffrey/)
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
S
Sacco, Amy: Nightclub mastermind behind Bungalow 8 and many other clubs. Listing her list of connections would take too long because her clubs are always hot spots for celebrities and the elite. The NY Times wrote a decent article (https://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/14/fashion/the-empress-is-in-amy-sacco-holds-court-at-another-new-york-nightspot.html) about Sacco’s clubs and clientele. Sacco has been photographed with Ghislaine, India Hicks, and Sophie Dahl, all of whom appear in Epstein’s black book (https://www.patrickmcmullan.com/photo/1563479).
Sachs, Jeffrey: Naming all of his titles would be an endeavor in itself. Sachs is a very influential figure who is best known for being an economist, an adviser to the United Nations, and a University Professor at Columbia University. Sachs serves on the Council on Foreign Relations, where Epstein served from 1995-2009. It is unclear whether he was there at the same time as Epstein, although given his popularity and influence, especially in the early 2000s, I would be surprised if he wasn’t around then.
Saffra, Edmund: Billionaire banker and alleged money launderer with tons of enemies who died under very mysterious circumstances in 1999. The official story was that one of his nurses - in an attempt to gain favor with Safra by saving him from danger - intentionally started a small fire in Safra’s home, which soon spiraled out of control, causing Safra to lock himself in the bathroom and suffocate to death. This article (https://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2000/12/dunne200012) does a good job of pointing out that Safra had many enemies, was a shady character, and was absolutely obsessed with security for himself and his family. It seems odd that Safra would allow his security detail (Mossad vets) to leave his home that night. This article (https://www.theguardian.com/theobserve2000/oct/29/features.magazine47) from The Guardian includes a statement from Ted Maher’s (the nurse who was convicted of starting the fire) wife, stating that he was coerced into signing a confession. Elie Wiesel, the author of Night who is also listed in Epstein’s contacts, was a good friend of Safra’s.
Safro, Wayne: Financial advisor.
Said, Wafic: Financier and businessman. Said is the Chairman of a children’s charity called the Said Foundation, where Prince Charles’s former private secretary, Sir Michael Peat GVCO, serves on the board of trustees (https://www.saidfoundation.org/pages/33-trustees-and-staff). The charity helps underprivileged children from the Middle East. Said has also contributed a lot of money to Prince Charles’s The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund, which, among other things, is dedicated to helping children.
Sainsbury, Mr Jamie: Descendant of the founder of the Sainsbury grocery chain. Old friend of Ghislaine Maxwell (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8466853/What-girls-frolicked-Bullingdon-boys-Oxfords-brightest-young-women-rose-top.html). James’s sister, Camilla, was married to British MP, Shaun Woodward, for 28 years. Camilla and Shaun are Trustees of The Woodward Charitable Trust, which helps disadvantaged children, women, and families (http://woodwardcharitabletrust.org.uk/portfolio/about_us/).
Salama, Eric: Former CEO of Kantar consulting firm. Also served as a Trustee for the British Museum (2000-2008). Survived a carjacking after getting stabbed last year (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6618395/Government-adviser-stabbed-carjacking-reveals-fine-punctured-lung.html).
Saltzman, Elizabeth: Contributing editor to Vanity Fair and Vogue, two of the three publications (along with Tatler) that continuously show up among Epstein’s contacts. Saltzman is also a celebrity fashion stylist with clients such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Saoirse Ronan, Stella McCartney, and Uma Thurman, the ex-wife of Arpad Busson, who is possibly one of the key players in this pedophile ring (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cl34ju/arpad_busson_billionaire_businessman_or_possible/). Andre Balazs, the hotelier who also seems to be embroiled in this whole fiasco held a party in 1995. Those in attendance included Ghislaine Maxwell, Katie Ford, and Elizabeth Saltzman (https://www.nydailynews.com/archives/gossip/taming-liz-fortensky-rumors-article-1.686445), all of whom appear in Epstein’s black book. In fact, Saltzman is a long-time friend of Ghislaine (https://www.mintpressnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Mysterious-business-of-the-queen-of-NY-Lon-1.pdf). This article also reveals that Ghislaine was introduced to Prince Andrew by the Duchess of York (Sarah Ferguson), and, even more telling, that Epstein was suspected of having Mossad ties when the article was written in 2000. In addition to all this, Saltzman is the ex-wife of hedge fund billionaire Glenn Dubin (https://www.nytimes.com/1987/09/14/style/miss-saltzman-editor-is-wed-to-glenn-dubin.html), one of the most heavily implicated people in Epstein’s pedophilia and child trafficking ring. I implore you to read more about Dubin (and his wife) in my D-F black book thread (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/). Saltzman can also be seen here, sitting next to Prince Andrew in 2010 (https://www.grandforksherald.com/news/world/4780114-Britains-Prince-Andrew-is-stepping-back-from-public-duties-after-Epstein-controversy). The lists of celebrities and well-known figures that Saltzman has been photographed with is unending.
Samuels, Mia: Actually Maia Samuel, former Producer of ABC Primetime (1989-1994). Went on to work for NBC, Bloomberg, and CNBC in various producer roles over the years. Now works as Director, Content Studios for Reuters (https://www.linkedin.com/in/maia-samuel-92172a10). Epstein has quite a few television ties, most notably to ABC news programs.
Sandelman, Jon & Corrie: Jonathan is a hedge fund manager and former Managing Director of Bank of America Securities. Corrie is his wife.
Sangster, Guy & Fi: Son of racing tycoon Robert Sangster, Guy is Managing Director at Sangster Group, which is involved in the Horse Racing industry. He also works as an investment adviser with Hambro Perks, a venture capitalist company. Prince Andrew is a close friend of Guy and his wife, Fiona. Prince Andrew even attended Sangster’s 40th birthday party (https://www.the-sun.com/news/136709/prince-andrews-pals-claims-witness-who-saw-him-with-sex-slave-is-confused-as-he-was-in-club-3-days-late).
Sangster, Mr Ben: Guy Sangster’s brother and fellow racing heir. Long-time acquaintance/friend(?) of the Royal Family. According to this article, the Sangsters are “one of the most high profile society families in London and often hang out with the royals (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5008073/Robert-Sangster-s-son-marries-Princess-Eugenie-s-friend.html).
Santo Domingo, Julio Mario: Unsure if this is the father or the son. Either way, this is a billionaire Colombian businessman whose company has controlling stock in Bavaria Brewery and is the 2nd highest stockholder of Anheuser Busch (15%). The senior Julio Mario Santo Domingo died in 2011. His son died from cancer in 2009.
Santo, Mr & Mrs M Espirito: Likely the former owners (or high-ranking family) of the Espirito Santo banking dynasty., which was forced to shutter due to charges of fraud, money laundering, and falsifying documents (https://www.cnbc.com/2014/07/30/how-a-portuguese-banking-mess-took-down-a-dynasty.html). Banco Espirito Santo was Portugal’s second-largest bank.
Saud Prince Solman: Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was a close friend of Epstein’s and met with him many times. Epstein even had a photograph of bin Salman hanging on his wall. The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia has been linked to the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi dissident who was lured to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and subsequently killed. The Crown Prince, said to have ordered the murder, and those who were physically involved with the murder, ultimately went unpunished. According to this article (https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/jeffrey-epstein-what-we-know-about-paedophile-businessmans-ties-middle-east), the numbers listed likely belong to the Crown Prince’s father, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia. Epstein’s Austrian passport had a fake name and Saudi address. This passport was to have been given to him by “a friend.” In November 2016, one day before the election, Epstein flew to Riyadh. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Amazon owner Jeff Bezos were in Riyadh at the same time, leading some to believe that the three may have met up (https://www.insider.com/epstein-riyadh-saudi-arabia-private-jet-2019-9).
Scerbo, Randall: A female (despite the name) fashion stylist and costume designer who eventually went into consulting. Randall also has credits as a producer and content creator for the Miss USA and Miss Universe beauty pageants.
Schiatti, Gianmarco: Creative director who helped several fashion companies (Gucci, Chanel, Coach, Ralph Lauren, Prada, etc.) with rebranding.
Schifter, Helen & Tim: Helen is a former arbitrage trader on Wall Street, as well as a socialite and a former editor at Hearst and Conde Nast (publisher of Tatler and Vogue), making this the 9000th Epstein-Conde Nast connection. Helen’s father is a businessman and has served as a consultant for the Du Pont Company. She runs in the same circles as Ghislaine Maxwell and has been at several of the same parties (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/helen-lee-schifter-ghislaine-maxwell-teddy-wong-and-news-photo/1169681659). Tim is CEO of LeSportsac, the luggage and tote bag manufacturer. Tim can be seen attending a Private Screening with Ghislaine Maxwell here (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/tim-schifter-and-ghislaine-maxwell-attend-private-screening-news-photo/590659962).
Sebag Montefiore Simon & Santa: Simon Montefiore is a British historian, television presenter, and author of history books and novels. Ghislaine attended the launch of Montefiore’s book, “The Court of the Red Tsar” (https://deepclips.com/clip/3225/exclusive-i-fear-i-saw-virginia-roberts-inside-jeffrey-epstein-s-creepy-new-mexico-ranch-contractor-claims). Santa is his wife and sister of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, who died of an ulcer in 2017. The Palmer-Tomkinson family is so close with the Royal Family that Prince Charles was named Tara’s godfather. As such, Simon and Santa are good friends of Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/4721868/The-lit-girl.html). Simon’s great-great-uncle was an international financier who worked for the Rothschilds in the 1800s. Siimon and his family are still close to the Rothschilds to this day (https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2008/01/montefiore200801).
Seitern, Christine: Architect.
Sejournet, Isabel de: Belgian arts consultant and wife of French Count Eric d’Hauteville.

Shabtai, Benny: Israeli businessman who specializes in watches and telecommunications. Served as Chair for Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) and has helped raise millions for the charity (https://electronicintifada.net/content/manhattans-friends-israel-defense-forces/5526). Epstein toured Israeli military bases with Shabtai in 2008 after being convicted of procuring an underage girl for prostitution (https://pagesix.com/2008/04/24/just-visiting/). Shabtai also served three years in the Israeli army and is a former bodyguard for the Israeli ambassador in Paris, France.
Shad, Brenda: Lingerie model who has known Epstein since the ‘90s (https://www.reddit.com/EpsteinAndFriends/comments/hbiwye/epstein_with_lingerie_model_brenda_schad_in_1997/). Almost married Robert Hanson (listed in my Epstein G-H thread) in 1996, the billionaire financier who was accused of raping Anouska de Georgiou when she was a teenager. She first met him when he was dating Naomi Campbell. Pictured with Maxwell here in 2005 (https://www.the-sun.com/news/103520/is-jeffrey-epsteins-unholy-alliance-with-the-victorias-secret-boss-the-real-reason-the-show-was-scrapped/).

Her career in Hollywood has been obliterated, although many still secretly think she has been a scapegoat (https://www.townandcountrymag.com/society/money-and-powea29643007/peggy-siegal-jeffrey-epstein-connection/), which once again proves the depravity of Hollywood.
Siegel, William (Bill): President of Chris-Craft Industries (1996-2001), a broadcasting company that owned several television channels across the U.S. Chris-Craft was eventually purchased by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation for $5.3 billion.

He was also a good friend of Lee Radziwill, mother-in-law of Carole Radziwill, listed earlier in Epstein’s book (check out the letter ‘R’ thread), before Lee’s passing.
Souza, Carlos: Works in public relations for Valentino.
Spacey, Kevin: Famous actor who has been accused of sexual assault by actor Anthony Rapp and 14 others (https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2017/11/07/kevin-spacey-scandal-complete-list-13-accusers/835739001/). He was on the infamous Epstein Africa flight with Clinton and Chris Tucker. Spacey also made this chilling video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZveA-NAIDI), which many think was a direct threat to the Royal Family. As a lot of you know, Spacey was close with the Royal Family and Ghislaine Maxwell. Just last month, a picture surfaced of Spacey and Ghislaine sitting on the British throne (https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/04/uk/maxwell-spacey-throne-gbr-intl/index.html).
Squire, Hugo: See Hugo Swire below.
St. Bris, Edward: International license manager at Pierre Cardin.
Stanburry, Caroline: Reality TV star from the show Ladies of London. Stanbury has also worked in public relations and as a stylist. Ex-girlfriend of Prince Andrew (after his divorce from the Duchess of York) and actor Hugh Grant.
Stark, Koo: Famous photographer who dated Prince Andrew for nearly two years in the early ‘80s. Stark eventually married (and divorced) Tim Jefferies, who was listed earlier in Epstein’s book (check the J-L thread). Stark went on to have a daughter with someone else. Prince Andrew is the godfather.
Starzewski Thomas: Famous British fashion designer whose clothes have been worn by the Royal Family.
Steenkamp, Chris: Not enough info. Possibly the artist responsible for these lovely drawings (https://www.instagram.com/christophersteenkamp.art/?hl=en), but I cannot confirm.
Steiner, Jeffrey: Not enough info. Probably the co-managing partner of MWE real estate group. I could be wrong, though.
Steinkampf, Chris & Nina: No info found.
Stengel, Andrew: Former director of acquisitions for Miramax. Former aide to Governor Mario Cuomo (father of Andrew and Chris).
Stengel, Rick & Mary: Richard is an editor, author, and government official (Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs) under Barack Obama. Richard is now a Senior Advisor at Snapchat and serves on the board of CARE, a charity that caters to women and children (https://care.org/about-us/leadership/richard-stengel/). Mary is his South African wife. Nelson Mandela was the godfather to their son, Gabriel.
Stern, Allison & Leonard: Allison (nee Maher) is a former model and TV producer. Her husband, Leonard, is a billionaire businessman involved in real estate. Leonard founded Homes for the Homeless, a charity that aims to help the financially disadvantaged. A large focus of the charity is children and youth (https://www.hfhnyc.org/). Leonard is also quite the heartless bastard. He announced that he was selling a Homes for the Homeless apartment building in midtown Manhattan, forcing its inhabitants to move out (https://thejewishvoice.com/2019/12/billionaires-nyc-homeless-facility-boots-out-elderly-tenants-before-holidays/). Just to show an example of how all these wealthy people truly do know each other, here is a link with pictures of Malcolm Forbes’s 70th birthday party in Morocco in 1989. Forbes flew out 800 guests (https://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/this-was-then-malcolm-forbes-70th-birthday-part-i/), including Leonard and Allison Stern, Robert Maxwell (Ghislaine’s father), Rupert Murdoch, Ronald Perelman, Barbara Walters, Robert and Blaine Trump, Diane von Furstenberg, King Constantine, Henry Kissinger, James Goldsmith, Hamish Bowles, Gianni Agnelli, Kay Graham, Elizabeth Taylor, Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, Walter Cronkite, Ann Getty, Fran Lebowitz, and more. Not only are these people rich, famous, and powerful, but many of them also appear in Epstein’s black book.
Stevens Michael: Not enough info.
Stopford-Sackville, Charlie &: Charles works in finance and securities. Owner of Drayton House (https://www.northamptonshiresurprise.com/organisation/drayton/) in Northamptonshire, England. Married to Shona McKinney, who I am guessing is the name that got cut off in Epstein’s black book. Shona is a good friend of Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/columnists/article-317052/Marks-married-maiden.html, who is a key figure in this whole Jeffrey Epstein saga.
Stracher Kate: Kate is an artist who went to Oxford with Ghislaine, but claims that she hasn’t seen her since then. (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1365733/How-Prince-Andrew-shared-room-Epsteins-Caribbean-hideaway-busty-blonde-claimed-brain-surgeon.html).
Sundlun, Stuart: Managing director of BMB Advisors, a private equity firm. Son of Governor Bruce Sundlun of Rhode Island (1991-1995). Stuart’s father also served as director of the National Security Education Board (NSEB) for four years under Clinton. Bruce is a great friend of Clinton right hand man (and multiple-time passenger on Epstein’s flight log), Ira Magaziner. Magaziner also appeared in Epstein’s black book (check out the ‘M’ thread for more info).
Sunley, Mr James & Amanda: James is CEO of Sunley Holdings, an investment company.
Sutherland, Harry: Likely refers to the investment banker who is Chairman of CrossInvest, an offshore corporate service company.
Svenlinson, Peter: Venture capitalist and founder of The Column Group. Served as Chairman for several pharmaceutical companies (Aragon, which was sold to Johnson & Johnson and Seragon, until it was solid to Genentech/Roche).
Swire, Sophie: English fashion entrepreneur who established a school for jewelers and gem-cutters in Afghanistan at Prince Charles’s request (https://adventurersclub.org/archives/calendanov2015.php). Co-founder of Learning for Life, an educational charity. She was a Trustee and Chairperson from 1995-2000. Learning for Life has established over 250 schools for girls in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India.
Swire, Hugo: Swire is a British Conservative Party politician who served as a Member of Parliament (MP) from 2001-2019. Son of Roger, director of Sotheby’s.
Swire, Jenny: Former Miss South Africa. Fashion director for Wedding Magazine and TV personality. Contributing editor for Tatler, a publication which has appeared more than ten times amongst Epstein’s contacts.
Swire, Mark: Involved in real estate.
Sykes, Lucy Ewen: Entrepreneur, fashion executive, and socialite. Fashion director of Marie Claire magazine. Former consultant for Ralph Lauren, T. J. Maxx, and Tommy Hilfiger. Good friend of nightclub guru Amy Sacco, who is one of the contacts listed earlier in this thread. Lucy and her husband attended a dinner for Prince Andrew at Epstein’s house in the early 2000s (https://www.thecut.com/2019/07/ghislaine-maxwell-the-socialite-on-jeffrey-epsteins-arm.html). Lucy’s husband, Euan Rellie, has been a friend of Ghislaine Maxwell’s for years.

2020.06.04 17:08 ChildfreeFamily Help fact-checking a list of well known Childfree people

I'm compiling a list of childfree people for a blog. I have found a few lists online (which have been helpful). But in some cases they were not up-to-date. A person may have had children since being added to their list (example: I had to remove George Clooney who appeared on a number of lists). Or there might be some people missing who should be on the list.
If you have a moment to scan the list and let me know of any other errors or omissions it would be appreciated.
It has been fun working on this list. A few people on it surprised me. Thanks again for any help.
\Edit for clarification: the term "childfree", in the sense of this list, will be in regards to people who never had a child from a live birth, fostered a child, adopted a child, or was a step-parent.*

And they also have animated feature length movies for each site, coincidentally.
A Religious Liberty bill will be signed into law reassigning all non-Christians to their new Christian denominations. Buddhists will become Baptists. Muslims will become Methodists. The Hindus will become Congregationalists. Mormons will become Presbyterians. “What about us?” the Unitarians will ask in a barely heard voice, to which the official response will be, “Go talk to the Catholics. Maybe they want you.”
Pay day loans, reverse mortgages and high frequency trading will be recognized by the SEC, FTC and Justice Department as key corruptions and cancers to capitalism. Nonetheless, they will spread and proliferate like weeds. New types and styles of snake oils and shell games will join them in the disfigurement of capitalism.
A growing number and majority of stores, restaurants and businesses in general will no longer accept cash, preferring credit cards and digital currency. Most panhandlers, prostitutes and drug dealers will also stop accepting cash and will instead require PayPal, Venmo or Bitcoin.
Surveillance will become ubiquitous as all devices in our lives - phones, doorbells, coffeemakers, tablets, speakers, watches, TVs, thermostats, crockpots, electrical plugs, litter boxes, remote controls, dog collars, security systems, vibrators, cars, weapons, (the list is growing) etc. - will harvest data about our lives and behaviors and feed that data to “data brokers” who analyze and sell that to other corporations. In response to this growing threat, personal data security companies will emerge that will require customers to register their personal data with them and will promise to protect that data. People will fall for this.
Online social influencer and personal data broker will become top paying jobs.
The first inter-species hybrid human will come to light in a gene-splicing lab somewhere in China. It will be either a pigboy or a monkeygirl. Scientific and medical authorities around the world will express their outrage. Meanwhile, millions will clamor to place orders for puppyboys and kittygirls.
The U.S. Department of Defense will officially begin planning strategies to weaponize the Internet. PornhubDoD.mil will be announced as the “nuclear option.”
The Republican and Democratic parties will assume new nicknames, the Hatfields and McCoys. “Oh, puh-lease,” will say 89-year-old Dolly Hatfield, granddaughter of “Devil” Anse Hatfield, of Possum Holler, Kentucky, to reporters from her nursing home, “we was never as bad as all them DC politicians. They’re downright crazy. We was just a mite pissed off.”
Dating apps will go the way of porn magazines as mating algorithms begin populating our phones and browsers with photos of candidates in our lane, based on various demographic variables. Amazon and Google will provide online weddings, will even provide avatars to act as bridesmaid and best-man.
Digisex will trend as the new safe alternative to physical sex.
The $15.5 trillion US corporate debt bubble, 74% of US GDP, will burst, throwing the US into economic chaos. Celebrations, by those who have dreamed of the event, will be short-lived when it is realized that no one’s phones work.
Nancy Pelosi and Bill Maher will be the first residents to check in at a luxurious new reeducation camp outside of Fairbanks. The string of new American Gulags with be a booming new industry and will provide many jobs for patriotic Alaskans.
Many US churches will begin installing security checkpoints, gun emplacements and sniper overwatch.
Many schools will implement TCPs, Traffic Control Points, manned by armed security personnel, except at rural schools, where TCPs will be manned by armed teachers and parents, and in some districts, students.
The PSC, Private Security Corporation, industry will surge and boom like a high school band at halftime at a Friday night football game.
High school bands will begin wearing tactical body armor at Friday night halftimes.
Hillary Clinton will finally reveal the location of Jimmy Hoffa’s body. “I told her not to do it!” Bill will say at her trial.
Trump will get reelected and will immediately sign an executive order establishing The Department of Truth, whose mandate will be to officially and legally determine which facts are truths and which are lies. Using the term “alternative facts” will become illegal.
The Democratic Party candidates for president will switch from debates to playing concerts as a band, during which each gets a solo spotlight, during which they have 5 minutes to play their instrument and riff on politics. Squabbles over who plays lead guitar and the drums will follow the band throughout their tour. Buttigieg will never stop complaining about having to play the flute.
A startup company will release a new product called the Emonilometer, which will measure a person’s emotional and spiritual depth and flow. Various plans ands price points will be available. Sales will soar as customers catch on that the more you pay the deeper your flow. (Note: A “nilometer” is used to measure river depth and flow, was first used by the ancient Egyptians.)
Multiple sources within the White House will claim that Trump’s favorite new phrase is “It’s good to be the king.” Sources close to Mel Brooks will claim that his favorite new phrase is, “Oy vey.”
A new extinct human species will be discovered. Homo idioticus will answer a lot of burning questions regarding the human tree of evolution, and the current state of humanity.
The collapse of the dairy industry, due to unmanageable costs and ratios, will lead scientists and farmer to look for other sources of milk, beyond almond and oat. New options will include shark milk, beetle milk, flamingo milk and even spider milk, for which demand will quickly out-strip supplies, due to consumers hoping for spider super powers.
A joint Chinese-Israeli-SpaceX project will start building a lunar station on the moon. The station will be focused on research and mining, but also will offer “Do It On the Moon” romantic get-away packages for couples.
The Labor Secretary will quip during a press conference that “retirement is for pussies.”
US Space Command will begin selecting and training its first class of Space Rangers.
LSD and psilocybin will be the new cure-all super-drugs, for everything from depression, addiction and dementia. Doctors and pharmacists will take to referring to these as Timothy Leary treatments. Members of the Leary family will demand a cut of the action.
Coach Orgeron and LSU will replace Saban and Alabama as the defining college football program, and will set new standards in 2020 when LSU becomes the first to sign a QB right out of middle school. Other schools will soon follow.
Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders will make a soft porn short film together in an attempt to connect with American voters.

2019.10.18 17:27 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 7 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-3) at Dallas Cowboys (3-3)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) at Dallas (3-3)
The Eagles continue their three game road trip after being shellacked by the Vikings last week in Minneapolis. The Eagles head next down to Dallas to take on the division rival Cowboys, who are reeling from a loss of their own at the hands of the New York Jets.. After coming out of the gate red hot, Dallas has lost three in a row to the Saints, Packers and Jets and the Eagles will look to make it four for their rival. The Eagles have had their own struggles though as the secondary has been getting torched week in and week out with little adjustments from Schwartz, who refuses to give his beleaguered corners more safety help over the top. On the other side of the ball, it is much of the same from last season where the Eagles are suffering from slow starts and failing to put up points in the first quarter. It won’t get easier for them this week. The Dallas defense is stout giving only 331.8 yards per game which is good for 9th in the league while holding opponents to 19.0 points per game (8th in the league). On the other side, the Cowboys may get a boost with both their tackles returning to practice Thursday albeit as limited participants, it is a good sign for the Cowboys who badly missed them last week versus the Jets, however Cooper and Cobb both remained sidelined Thursday. Their participation Friday will be something to watch for to give a better idea for their status on Sunday. The Eagles are dealing with injuries of their own as Desean Jackson, Jason Peters, Darren Sproles and Nigel Bradham are all likely to miss the game this week. Injuries aside, this is a huge game with first place in the NFC East on the line for the two 3-3 squads. Look for the Eagles to try to establish the run early and utilize the screen game against the fast attacking Cowboy defense to get them on their heels. On the other side of the ball, the secondary may get some help this week with the return of Jalen Mills, but the secondary will need some help from their play caller. If the Eagles hope to hold Dak in check, Schwartz will needs to stop focusing on the run and be willing to give his corners help over the top, despite such a strong running threat from Elliott. If the Eagles can limit the big plays and force the Cowboys to grind it out, it will go a long way in winning this football game. It is Prime Time NFCE Sunday Night Football, so let's get ready for a slugfest this weekend. Go Birds!

Eagles 23 - Cowboys 29
The Cowboys dominated almost from the start, but let the Eagles stay close to set up a wild fourth quarter as they outgained the Eagles 576-256 on the day, but the Eagles hung around to set up an exciting 4th quarter that saw 3 TDs on the final 3 series. After Dallas took a 7 point lead on a 75 yard TD pass from Prescott to Cooper, the Eagles responded with a TD of their own. After a bad call nullified a Dallas Goedert TD, the Eagles marched down the field and scored a game tying TD with 1:39 to go in the game. After the Cowboys failed to score on the next possession the game went to overtime where the Cowboys got the ball to start. The Cowboys quickly marched down the field and scored the game winning TD. Rasul Douglas jump the slant route and tipped the ball, but it ended up in the waiting arms of Amari Cooper who took it in for the score to give the Cowboys the 29-23 win.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles
Video The Eagles saw a familiar nemesis in Kirk Cousins who scorched them in the past and this weekend gave them flashbacks. Cousins has been criticized this season for not living up to his contract, but he lived up to it Sunday throwing for 333 yards and 3 TDs against the bewildered Eagles secondary. The Vikings got it started early and with a Theilen TD on the opening drive. Despite all signs pointing to the Vikings being aggressive and exploiting the poor pass defense, Jim Schwartz stubbornly continued to keep 8 men in the box most of the day and left his corners on islands to cover the speedy Diggs and All-Pro Theilen on their own with no help over the top. While the defense was torched the Eagles offense had their own struggles as they once again failed to score in the first quarter and struggled to find rhythm throughout the day as they fell to the Vikings 38-20.
Cowboys
Video The Cowboys entered the game reeling from a home loss to the Green Bay Packers while the Jets looked to get a boost from QB Sam Darnold who returned to action for the first time since week 1 as he recovered from mono. A boost is exactly what Darnold gave the Jets as he threw for 2 TDs in the second quarter and was 23-32 for 338 yards on the day. The Cowboys were without their top 2 receiving targets in Randall Cobb who missed than game and Cooper who left the game with a quad injury after the first drive.The Dallas WRs struggled to get open and the high powered Dallas offense sputtered. Dallas did make a push in the 4th quarter, but the Jets were able to hold them off for their first win of the season under Adam Gase.24-22.

Since 2000, Philadelphia has produced a 21-17 regular-season record vs. Dallas, which marks the highest winning percentage (.553) by an NFC East team against the Cowboys in that span. The Eagles have also registered a 6-4 (.600) regular-season record at AT&T Stadium, winning 4 of their last 6 games at the venue.
Since 2016, Philadelphia ranks 4th in the NFL in primetime winning percentage (.722, 13-5) (including playoffs), trailing only Seattle (.781, 12-3-1) in the NFC.
The Eagles own the 3rd-highest overall winning percentage (.667, 6-3) in primetime road games since 2016, behind Pittsburgh (.778, 7-2) and New England (.714, 5-2)
Philadelphia owns the No. 2-ranked rushing defense (72.8), trailing only Tampa Bay (68.0). The Eagles also lead that category since 2016 (including playoffs), allowing just 91.2 rushing yards per game in that span. Philadelphia has not allowed a 100+ yard rusher in 9 consecutive regular-season contests.
The Eagles have produced the 3rd-best third-down offense (50.0%) in the NFL, behind Houston (51.4%) and Dallas (50.7%). Philadelphia’s 50.0% third-down conversion rate is the team’s 3rd best mark through 6 games since at least 1991, behind 1994 (51.0%) and 2017 (50.6%).
Philadelphia ranks 4th in the NFL with a 70.0% red zone TD efficiency, trailing only Houston (71.4%), Buffalo (71.4%), and Seattle (70.8%) in that category.
Carson Wentz ranks 2nd among NFL QBs in passing TDs per game (2.2) since 2017, behind Patrick Mahomes (2.8). Wentz also owns the 6th highest passer rating (100.5) in the NFL in that span, trailing only Mahomes (111.8), Drew Brees(108.8), Russell Wilson (105.8), Deshaun Watson (104.1) and Matt Ryan (100.7) (min. 500 attempts).
Miles Sanders ranks 3rd among NFL RBs in scrimmage yards per touch (5.97), behind Dalvin Cook (6.08) and Matt Breida (5.99) (min. 60 touches). Sanders has recorded a 30+ yard play from scrimmage in each of the least 4 games, totaling six 30+ yard plays (5 receiving, 1 rushing).

Stats to Know
Dak Prescott’s Time to Throw
In the first 3 weeks of the 2019 regular season, Dak was dropping an astounding 147.2 passer rating on dropbacks 2.5 seconds or less and 98.9 on those over. He averaged 2.67 seconds (8th-longest of QBs with a noteworthy number of dropbacks) in Time to Throw over that period, with 45.5% of his dropbacks coming in under 2.5 seconds. In Weeks 4-6 (3 Cowboys losses), Dak was averaging the 9th-longest average Time to Throw at an almost identical clip of 2.66 seconds. However, his passer rating in attempts coming under 2.5 seconds plummeted to 81.2, where his passer rating in attempts over 2.5 seconds also dropped from 98.9 to 85.3. Potentially missing key contributors, we shall see how these figures fare in Week 7 against an under-performing Eagles secondary--an understatement I fully acknowledge.
Matchups to Watch
Cowboys Passing Attack vs Eagles Pass Defense
There is no point in praising the Eagles limiting Dalvin Cook to under 3 YPC when they got absolutely torched through the air yet again. Few people love stopping the run as much as Schwartz despite the fact that having a worse pass defense doesn’t really help your odds of winning. Dallas enters this contest with their own injuries since Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb may not play. Cobb is a notable loss but missing Cooper would be a big help to a wildly poor Eagles pass defense considering what he is able to do. I’m not sure when to rank Cooper among the NFLs wide receivers, but he is a very good route runner that is capable of making himself an easy target for Dak Prescott. Second year pro Michael Gallup had a nice start to the season prior to missing time with his own injury and is a great compliment to the other two starting receivers on the roster. The Eagles enter with a poor cornerback room fresh off the roasting by Kirk Cousins and the great Vikings receivers. Rasul Douglas has been solid on the young season prior to last week. He’s not likely a long term starter at the position but he’s giving you good value for the resources used to get him. Sidney Jones may start opposite him if Ronald Darby can’t go or if Jalen Mills isn’t activated off PUP this week. That’s a problem area. Jones looks washed and lacks any sort of confidence needed to play outside. The players that may return will help the Eagles but they have missed significant time so expectations should be low in the short term. Moreover, the coaching staff has continuously failed to ensure the DBs are executing their responsibilities consistently and failing to develop them in meaningful ways to help out the team. Dallas has an opportunity to get right against this group as do the Eagles themselves given the Cowboys injury struggles. If the Eagles pass defense can just be solid – and not a liability – it’ll go a long way in ensuring success on Sunday.
Cowboys Offensive Line vs Eagles Pass Rush
The Eagles pass rush has not been bad so far this season… it just hasn’t been great. This is a defensive scheme that is predicated on a dominant front 4; we’ve seen what that can mean for the Eagles when they are playing at an elite level. Injury, recovery, natural regression, and the slow growth of younger players on the line have been contributing factors to Eagles lack of pass rush as compared to the previous two years. This is a big setback for the organization since the success of the scheme is predicated on this unit. Like the Jets game two weeks ago, this contest provides the Eagles with a chance to get right against a struggling and banged up offensive line with Tyron Smith and La’el Collins unlikely to go. Tyron Smith has returned to form as a top tier left tackle but has missed the last couple of weeks due to a high ankle sprain. As we saw in 2017, Smith’s absence has massive ramifications for the Cowboys offensive performance. La’el Collins had a good start to the season prior to suffering his own injury. Dak takes more hits and sacks without Smith in the game and that problem is amplified with Collins out as well. Brandon Graham has been playing well so far this season and the Eagles will need that to continue Sunday. Derek Barnett and the other EDGE rushers need to step up opposite him by taking advantage of backup Cameron Flemming. Travis Frederick has returned to the starting lineup this year after missing 2018. While he isn’t at the All Pro level we’ve become accustomed to, he’s still a solid center that is slowly returning to form. The Eagles need Fletcher Cox and whoever else will play on the inside to take advantage of the favorable matchups presented to them by a lesser Frederick and Connor Williams. It’s important to limit Zeke but it is also important to pressure Dak into making bad decisions and getting sacks. It’s not reasonable for anyone to expect a strong performance by the Eagles secondary but the defensive line can absolutely have an impact in this one. They will need to in order to win on Sunday.
Cowboys Secondary vs Eagles Passing Attack
The Eagles passing offense has been extremely underwhelming in the absence of Desean Jackson as they have no big play element at Wide Receiver with his injury. Alshon Jeffery has seemingly worked his way back from an early season calf injury and is a big, usually reliable target for Carson Wentz. Other than Alshon, none of the Eagles WRs are giving the offense anything of value without Jackson out there. Mr. Try Hard himself, Nelson Agholor, has been nothing but a waste of cap room given his production. If the pass isn’t absolutely perfect, he isn’t catching it. And he may not catch it even if it is. Mack Hollins? Who? JJAW is where? There were high expectations for this receiving group entering the season and they would be met if Desean was on the field. Unfortunately, this is a group that absolutely cannot make a moderately difficult play to bail out their QB. At some point this has to change for the Eagles to succeed this season. Zach Ertz has been getting a lot of extra attention from opposing defense since he is the best receiving option on the field for Philly right now and even he has cost the team recently. Dallas enters the game with a banged up secondary as Xavier Woods is out, Byron Jones may be out, and Anthony Brown may be out as well. This secondary gave the Eagles some issues last year and is hurting right now. Can the Eagles receivers make a play for their QB? Wentz is doing everything he can to put the team in positon to win each week this season: the rest of the offense has repeatedly let him down. The stakes are high in this game and the team needs this group to step up for the first time in a long time.
Eagles vs Slow Starts
The Eagles cannot start fast; the alarming trend from 2018 hasn’t gone away so far in 2019. I’d wager that Eagles fans can turn off the game for the first quarter and expect the team to trail by 10 early without scoring any first quarter points. This is a trend that cannot continue anymore. Coaches and players need to come together to figure out what they are doing wrong and stop doing that thing. It’s infuriating to watch and not conducive to success for this team to be in a position where they are constantly chasing teams. Statistics show that teams that start fast and score early are more likely to have success than not. Why the Eagles cannot get this fixed is beyond me but they have no choice but in doing so. They play themselves out of games with the slow starts. Failing to get going as they have been can cost them in the long run later in this season. Everyone who follows this teams knows this is a troubling trend that seems to not have an end in sight. We also know that if they can get going, they can have success. Will they? I am not sure.

2019.09.02 02:54 chosenbewill VICE: "If it wasn't for Taylor Swift's bleached asshole, Peppa Pig, Max Martin's ballsack and gay sex there would be no TOOL" [FRESH ALBUM] [FRESH VIDEO] [POP EMERGENCY] [ARTICLE] [REVIEW] [DISCUSSION]

Taylor Alison Swift (born December 13, 1989) is an American singer-songwriter. She is known for narrative songs about her personal life, which have received widespread media coverage. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Swift moved to Nashville, Tennessee at the age of 14 to pursue a career in country music. She signed with label Big Machine Records and became the youngest artist signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house. Her 2006 eponymous debut album was the longest-charting album of the 2000s in the U.S., where it peaked at number five. The album's third single, "Our Song", made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Hot Country Songs chart. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008. Buoyed by the success of pop crossover singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me", Fearless became the best-selling album of 2009 in the U.S. The album won four Grammy Awards, and Swift became the youngest Album of the Year winner.
Swift was the sole writer of her 2010 album Speak Now. It debuted at number one in the U.S., and the single "Mean" won two Grammy Awards. Her fourth album, Red (2012), yielded the successful singles "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" and "I Knew You Were Trouble". For her fifth album, the pop-focused 1989 (2014), she received three Grammys and became the first woman and fifth act overall to win Album of the Year twice. Its singles "Shake It Off", "Blank Space", and "Bad Blood" reached number one in the U.S., Australia, and Canada. Her sixth album, Reputation (2017), and its lead single, "Look What You Made Me Do", topped the UK and U.S. charts; with the release of Reputation, Swift became the first act to have four albums sell one million copies within one week in the U.S. Her seventh album, Lover (2019), spawned two U.S. number-two singles, "Me!" and "You Need to Calm Down".
Having sold more than 50 million albums—including 32 million in the U.S.—and 150 million singles, Swift is one of the best-selling music artists of all time. As a songwriter, she has received awards from the Nashville Songwriters Association and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and was included in Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time in 2015. Her other accolades include 10 Grammy Awards, one Em⛧ Ḥ̸̩̤͚͚̑̉i̷͓̐̂͝͝d̴̼͙̹̞͓͑͂͋̅ě̷̢͋̊͒ ̴̤̺͎̅̆̂i̵̯̰̚͠t̷͇̖̃̓ ̶̺̥̑̈́'̸̭̇̊̾͜͝t̵͔̥͚̮̽̐͗̂͠ḯ̸̧̘̲̝́̋̍͝l̵̪̐̓̇͝ͅ ̴̡̳̟̦͒͊̎̉w̸̡͍̜̦̒͒̅͝e̶͚͂

Life and career 1989–2003: Early life
Taylor Alison Swift was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania.[1] Her father, Scott Kingsley Swift, was a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch; her mother, Andrea Gardner Swift (née Finlay), was a homemaker who had worked as a mutual fund marketing executive.[2] Swift, who has said she has Scottish heritage[3] was named after the singer-songwriter James Taylor.[4] She has a younger brother named Austin, who is an actor.[5] Swift spent her early years on a Christmas tree farm, which her father purchased from one of his clients.[6][7] She attended preschool and kindergarten at the Alvernia Montessori School, run by Franciscan nuns,[8] before transferring to The Wyndcroft School.[9] The family moved to a rented house in the suburban town of Wyomissing, Pennsylvania,[10] where she attended Wyomissing Area JunioSenior High School.[11]
At age nine, Swift became interested in musical theater and performed in four Berks Youth Theatre Academy productions.[12] She also traveled regularly to New York City for vocal and acting lessons.[13] Swift later shifted her focus toward country music inspired by Shania Twain's songs, which made her "want to just run around the block four times and daydream about everything".[14] She spent her weekends performing at local festivals and events.[15][16] After watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt sure she needed to go to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a music career.[17] She traveled with her mother at age eleven to visit Nashville record labels and submitted a demo tape of Dolly Parton and Dixie Chicks karaoke covers.[18] She was rejected, however, because "everyone in that town wanted to do what I wanted to do. So, I kept thinking to myself, I need to figure out a way to be different".[19]
When Swift was about 12 years old, computer repairman and local musician Ronnie Cremer taught her to play guitar. He helped with her first efforts as a songwriter, leading to her writing "Lucky You".[20] In 2003, Swift and her parents started working with New York-based music manager Dan Dymtrow. With his help, Swift modeled for Abercrombie & Fitch as part of their "Rising Stars" campaign, had an original song included on a Maybelline compilation CD, and attended meetings with major record labels.[21] After performing original songs at an RCA Records showcase, Swift was given an artist development deal and began making frequent trips to Nashville with her mother.[22][23]
To help Swift break into country music, her father transferred to Merrill Lynch's N⛧ Ḥ̸̩̤͚͚̑̉i̷͓̐̂͝͝d̴̼͙̹̞͓͑͂͋̅ě̷̢͋̊͒ ̴̤̺͎̅̆̂i̵̯̰̚͠t̷͇̖̃̓ ̶̺̥̑̈́'̸̭̇̊̾͜͝t̵͔̥͚̮̽̐͗̂͠ḯ̸̧̘̲̝́̋̍͝l̵̪̐̓̇͝ͅ

School[25] but after two years transferred to the Aaron Academy, which through homeschooling could accommodate her touring schedule; she graduated a year early.[26] 2004–2008: Career beginnings and Taylor Swift
In Nashville, Swift worked with experienced Music Row songwriters such as Troy Verges, Brett Beavers, Brett James, Mac McAnally, and the Warren Brothers,[27][28] and formed a lasting working relationship with Liz Rose.[29] They began meeting for two-hour writing sessions every Tuesday afternoon after school.[30] Rose thought the sessions were "some of the easiest I've ever done. Basically, I was just her editor. She'd write about what happened in school that day. She had such a clear vision of what she was trying to say. And she'd come in with the most incredible hooks." Swift was signed by the Sony/ATV Tree publishing house,[31] but left RCA Records when she was 14.[16] She later said: "I genuinely felt that I was running out of time. I wanted to capture these years of my life on an album while they still represented what I was going through".[32] At an industry showcase at Nashville's Bluebird Cafe in 2005, Swift caught the attention of Scott Borchetta, a DreamWorks Records executive who was preparing to form an independent record label, Big Machine Records. She first met Borchetta in 2004.[33] Swift became one of Big Machine's first signings, and her father purchased a three-percent stake in the company for an estimated $120,000.[34][35] She began working on her eponymous debut album shortly after. Swift persuaded Big Machine to hire her demo producer Nathan Chapman, with whom she felt she had the right "chemistry".[16] She wrote three of the album's songs alone, and co-wrote the remaining eight with Rose, Robert Ellis Orrall, Brian Maher, and Angelo Petraglia.[36] Taylor Swift was released on October 24, 2006.[37] Jon Caramanica of The New York Times described it as "a small masterpiece of pop-minded country, both wide-eyed and cynical, held together by Ms. Swift's firm, pleading voice".[38] Taylor Swift peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 albums chart in the United States, spending 157 weeks there—the longest stay on the chart by any release in the U.S. that decade.[39] As of August 2016, the album had sold over 7.75 million copies worldwide.[40]
Big Machine Records was still in its infancy during the June 2006 release of the lead single, "Tim McGraw". Swift and her mother helped "stuff the CD singles into envelopes to send to radio".[41] She spent much of 2006 promoting Taylor Swift with a radio tour, television appearances, and opening for Rascal Flatts on select dates during their 2006 tour[42][43] after they fired their previous opening act, Eric Church, for playing longer than his allotted time. Church jokingly told Swift she should give him her first gold record as thanks for getting fired. She sent him her first gold record with a note that said, "Thanks for playing too long and too loud on the Flatts tour. I sincerely appreciate it. Taylor."[44]
Borchetta said that record industry peers disapproved of his signing a 16-year-old singer-songwriter, but that Swift tapped into a previously unknown market—teenage girls who listen to country music.[6] Following "Tim McGraw", four more singles were released throughout 2007 and 2008: "Teardrops on My Guitar", "Our Song", "Picture to Burn" and "Should've Said No". All were successful on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart in the United States, with "Our Song", and "Should've Said No" reaching number one. With "Our Song", Swift became the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the chart.[45] "Teardrops on My Guitar" reached number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart in the United States.[46] Swift also released the holiday album Sounds of the Season: The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection in October 2007 and the EP Beautiful Eyes in July 2008.[47][48] She promoted her debut album extensively as the opening act for other artists on their tours.[49]
Swift won accolades for Taylor Swift. She was one of the recipients of the Nashville Songwriters Association's SongwriteArtist of the Year in 2007, becoming the youngest person to be honored with the title.[50] She also won the Country Music Association's Horizon Award for Best New Artist,[51] the Academy of Country Music Awards' Top New Female Vocalist,[52] and the American Music Awards' Favorite Country Female Artist honor.[53] She was also nominated for Best New Artist at the 2008 Grammy Awards.[54] She opened for the Rascal Flatts on their 2008 summer and fall tour.[55] In July of that year, Swift began a romance with singer Joe Jonas that ended three months later.[56][57] 2008–2010: Fearless and acting
Swift's second studio album, Fearless, was released on November 11, 2008.[37] The lead single, "Love Story", was released in September 2008.

History of Drugs/Opioid Crisis, Thai Food
This time we didn't end up watching anything as I gave a talk based on the independent study I'm doing on History of Drugs in Society. From there we had a lovely 7 hour conversation that touched on everything from the opioids and the crisis, what is the meaning of life, happiness, selfishness, and a bunch of other topics. You can see some info I put together below

Overview
According to the CDC, there were 70,237 drug overdose deaths in 2017 in the US, of which 47,600 involved opiates. You can see some more stats on the CDC site - I suggest checking out the maps from 2014-2017 to get a visual effect of the growth in the rate of overdoses.
There was a lot involved in the current crisis, starting from the growth in prescription opiates in the 90s, to Mexican drug cartels expanding into the US and targeting midwestern cities/rural areas in the 00s into 10s, to the growing trend of fentanyl and other synthetic opiates being related to overdoses. Fentanyl was first being cut into heroin and prescription pills and has been sold more directly recently.
This compares lethal doses of heroin and fentanyl, https://www.statnews.com/2016/09/29/why-fentanyl-is-deadlier-than-heroin/.
"The rate of drug overdose deaths involving fentanyl and fentanyl analogs doubled each year from 2013 through 2016, from 0.6 per 100,000 in 2013 to 1.3 in 2014, 2.6 in 2015, and 5.9 in 2016." source.
Some overall context
This is all in the greater context of humanity's relationship with opioids throughout history, which dates back at least to the Roman, Egyptian, and Greek civilizations. Opium's use was mostly medicinal until the expanse of European countries into Asia starting in 1498, and ramping up with the Dutch and British East India Companies.
This led to (super abridged version):
  • the Opium Wars (1839-1860),
  • government-run production and industrialization (1800-WWI/WWII/1960s, stubborn French),
  • the expanse of legal over the counter opium, heroin, and morphine (1800s, picking up 1850s-1910s),
  • first examples of larger addiction leading to prohibition policies (1860s-1950s),
  • birth of organized crime to fill market demand as the suppliers (governments) pulled out of opium production and trading (1920s-present),
  • post-WWII, the rise of the Golden Triangle (Myanmar, Laos, Thailand), Colombia and Mexico, and the Golden Cresent (Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan), all in the face of the Cold War which led to all kinds of conflicted interests

2018.12.07 20:26 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 14 - Philadelphia Eagles(6-6) at Dallas Cowboys(7-5)

Philadelphia Eagles (6-6) vs Dallas Cowboys (7-5)
Last week's division win against the Redskins set up a showdown in the NFCE that will decide first place and could decide the division champion. The a win by the Eagles would put them in first place in the division with the Cowboys due to a better division record while a win by the Cowboys would all, but wrap up the NFCE for them with a comfortable lead. These two teams went into different directions since they last met just a couple weeks ago with the Cowboys ripping 3 straight wins following their win over the Birds, while the Eagles were embarrassed by the Saints before taking two wins from division rivals. The Eagles will travel to Arlington, where they have played well since the stadium opened posted a 6-4 record at AT&T Stadium. The Eagles will need to keep that going if they hope to make a late playoff push. The offense finally looked like it start to click and the team finally looked like they were playing together last week as Wentz spread the ball around and Tate was heavily involved in the game plan scoring his first TD since joining the Eagles and the Eagles RBs looked good gaining yards on the ground as they took down a beat up Redskins team. The offense will have the tough task as they take on a Cowboys defense that just shut down Drew Brees and the high powered Saints offense in New Orleans. The Eagles will need to get the running game going to set play-action and the RPOs, if the Eagles succeed it could be a long day for the Dallas defense. Running the ball will also help keep the Dallas offense off the field which has become much more balanced since the addition of Amari Cooper from the Raiders. The Eagles beat up secondary will need to do a better job on Cooper this game if they want any shot of keeping the Dallas defense in check. Like Philly, Dallas will try to run the ball early to get Zeke going in order to set up play action and keep the Eagles pass rush in check. If the Eagles DL is able to win in the trenches it will go a long way in shutting down the Cowboys offense. Let's hope for an injury free game for once this season. Go Birds!

Cowboys 27-Eagles 20
The bye week was not able to help the struggling Eagles who failed to show up again, this time against the division rival Cowboys. The Eagles offense failed to execute until late in the 3rd quarter, which is around the same time the wheels fell off on the defense which collapsed again in the 4th quarter giving up two TDs as the Eagles fell to their division rival. Zeke Elliott had 151 yards rushing and his go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter helped the Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 on Sunday night

The Eagles came out of the bye slow and did not play their best football in the first half as they trailed the rival Cowboys 9-7 at halftime Sunday night. After a halftime pep talk and some midgame adjustments the Eagles game out firing on all cylinders in the second half as they put up 30 points while shutting out the Cowboys in the second half. The Eagles had a balanced attack on offense as Carson threw for two 2 TDs and the Eagles rushing attacked put up 215 yards rushing. The Eagles defense also played well as they picked up Dak Prescott 3 times and forced a fumble while not allowing any TDs. Kicker Jake Elliott left the game early forcing the Eagles into going for it on 2 point conversions and 4th downs and backup LB Kamu Grugier-Hill was forced into kickoff duties and did register a touchback.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Video Eagles took on the division rival Redskins who may be one of the only teams with more key injuries than the Eagles and it just got worse for Washington with backup Colt McCoy having to leave the game with a broken fibula after the first quarter. Journeyman and former Eagles Mark Sanchez was forced into action just two weeks after joining the team. With the limited off the Redskins struggled to get anything going on offense outside of a long 90 yards AP TD run in the 2nd quarter. On the otherside of the ball the Redskins offense struggled to stop the Eagles who seemed to move the ball with ease. The Eagles offense looked in rhythm for the first time this season moving the ball both through the air and on the ground and getting multiple people involved. Carson Wentz threw for 306 yards 2 TDs and an INT and the Eagles moved the ball on the ground with 134 yards on 29 carries from their running backs in a 28-13 win.
Cowboys - Video – The Cowboys traveled down to New Orleans to take on the red hot Saints and took it to them as the Cowboys defense complete stifled the high power Saints offense holding to them just 10 points. The Cowboys offense did just enough to seal the win for the Cowboys with Zeke scoring the teams lone TD on a screen pass and Maher added two FGs. The Cowboys defense was able to seal the win for the Cowboys with a late Jourdon Lewis INT, which allowed Dallas to run out the clock in the final 2 minutes for the win.

Stats to Know
Amari Cooper: Finally Drop-kicked His Drops Problem?
[Over the course of his NFL career, Amari Cooper has been known for displaying a high level of talent and also a high number of drops. He had 18 drops his first year, 5 his second, 10 his third, and then we come to 2018. In 5-ish games with the Raiders, Carr had 2 drops. In his 5 games with the Cowboys, he’s had 0 drops. Cooper has plugged a big hole in the Cowboys offense, primarily used in the 0-10 yard range and primarily in the middle and the left side of the formation.
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Offensive Line vs. Cowboys Defensive Front
It took almost the entire season but with playoff hopes near the brink with the biggest game of the year on the horizon, the Eagles offensive line enters with some momentum fresh off their best performance against a very good Redskins defensive front. Now I know what I am about to say will probably anger some Cowboys fans – ask me if I care – but I do think the Redskins defensive line is a better overall group than the Dallas one. However… the Dallas LB pairing is far and away better than the Skins. It’s a different challenge this week than last but a challenge nonetheless. Demarcus Lawrence is still a monster and Randy Gregory has been effective in spurts for the Cowboys especially of late. It’s not a deep DL group but it has been playing well of late. With Lane Johnson back in the fold for this one, Lawrence will have a trickier matchup against a Top 5 NFL tackle. The Eagles OL seems to have found a groove. Per PFF, Kelce, Brooks, and Lane Johnson surrendered 0 pressures against the Redskins on Monday night. Jason Peters only surrendered 1 and Seumalo surrendered 3. That’s a very good outing. The challenge this week will be to control a DL not at the Skins level while accounting for athletic freaks in Jaylon Smith and LVE on a unit that is well coached. Both LBs have the size and athletic ability to take on blockers and stop plays in their tracks. It is very difficult to push them off the ball. Additionally, due to their athleticism, both LBs make it difficult to execute a screen game. We saw this in their first matchup and we saw this against the Saints. It’s a beatable Dallas defense that is playing really well but their LBs cover a lot of ground and have the size as well as the motor to really fly around the ball. The offensive line will need to continue to play with the intelligence and ability they have showed of late as it provides the Eagles will the best chance to create opportunities to score.
Eagles Passing Game vs. Cowboys Secondary
The Cowboys front makes it a challenge for the Eagles to run the ball but the secondary and coverage philosophies have the ability to suffocate opponents and force them into less than ideal situations. Dallas will play a lot of Cover 1 and Cover 3 looks with athletes at both outside CB positions that can win their 1v1 matchups especially Byron Jones. The Eagles passing game, with the help of a good game plan, was able to open a lot of opportunities for success in their first meeting but mistakes cost the Eagles points in different situations. Pederson and company will have to be creative with routes to open receivers in man coverage. With Golden Tate seemingly integrated into the offense more since the trade, the Eagles do have options in the passing game. It’ll be important for the Eagles to limit the self-inflicted wounds we’ve seen from them throughout the season. The Cowboys will disguise a lot of what they do post snap and Wentz will need to be more mindful of that this time around than he was in the first matchup when he threw that interception to LVE. Lastly, the Cowboys have had issues against offenses in 12 personnel this year; the Eagles have been excellent with 2 TEs and they shouldn’t hesitate to try and get the Cowboys into their base defense as much as possible. This is a Cowboys defense that doesn’t allow a lot of explosive plays and is great in the red zone. This plays into the Eagles hands since they don’t produce a lot of explosive plays this season. They’ll have to find a way to turn opportunities into points to keep themselves in more favorable situations.
Eagles Defensive Line vs Cowboys Offensive Line
A lot rides on this battle for the Eagles in this contest given how they are built and their opponent this week. For the first time since the bye, the Eagles defensive line generated pressure at a 40% clip. Granted, that was against an incredibly banged up Skins OL but it shows the DL has the ability to win when it should. This week isn’t any different. La’el Collins is a below average OT and the Eagles will have Michael Bennett, Brandon Graham, and Chris Long available to bring pressure off the edge. Tyron Smith has been a limited participant in practice this week for Dallas which isn’t unusual but his status for Sunday is in doubt leaving both tackle position vulnerable. Zack Martin is an All-World guard and really helps this interior. But this Dallas offensive line isn’t nearly at the level it once was and it provides the Eagles defense a chance to really create big plays they otherwise haven’t this year. Dak Prescott has the highest sack percentage in the NFL and that number has risen since the Amari Cooper trade. Part of that is an OL that has dropped off due to injury but the other part of that is due to his inability to function in a chaotic pocket. He’s a mess under pressure and that only reveals itself with great regularity on tape. Pressure can force mistakes and we’ve seen Dak make plenty of those even on their winning streak. Furthermore, the defensive line will need to play with more discipline this week to contain Ezekiel Elliott who ran wild a few weeks ago. This discipline does extend to Dak as well since he is more than capable of extending the pocket as a glorified RB. The Eagles defense has done little in the way of forcing turnovers this season but we able to do so this past week. It’s starts up front with the defensive line as this unit needs to be the force we know they can be.
Eagles Pass Defense vs Cowboys Pass Offense
The Eagles still have a banged up secondary but have returned second year pro Sidney Jones from hamstring injury and he has been manning one of the outside CB spots with Mills and Darby out of the lineup. Rasul Douglas is back after getting hurt against the Saints and former Bears CB Cre’von Leblanc mans the slot. It’s a real patchwork group for the Eagles that hasn’t been completely horrible the last two weeks but faces a more difficult test Sunday. The Dallas passing offense has been better and more efficient since the Amari Cooper trade. This makes sense for several reasons. Cooper can consistently win 1v1 in man and zone; Cooper has always been a terrific route runner and consistently provides Dak an open target. Dak isn’t a QB that throws with anticipation and doesn’t have the ability to throw his receivers open so having a guy like Cooper available really helps the overall offense. Perhaps the biggest factor in the Cowboys offensive turnaround of late has been better play calling to give Dak easier options in the passing game. Zeke has been used as a receiver on early downs more often than he has in the past and it has helped their offense tremendously. Cooper can be a thorn in the Eagles side in this contest given his favorable matchups outside especially against Rasul Douglas. Hopefully rookie Avonte Maddox returns for this contest since he would provide the Eagles with a good safety option over the top. The Eagles should look to try and take away Cooper as much as possible making Dak work for in the passing game with my difficult attempts. Avonte Maddox would help a lot here. There are other solid options on the Cowboys roster at receiver but limiting the more dynamic player will help greatly. Even in their big win against the Saints, the Cowboys only scored 13 points and allowed 7 sacks. It’ll be imperative for the Eagles defense to force Dallas into low percentage situations and keep them from controlling the clock. It’ll be challenge for a depleted secondary.

2018.11.09 18:09 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 10 - Philadelphia Eagles(4-4) vs Dallas Cowboys(3-5)

Philadelphia Eagles (4-4) vs Dallas Cowboys (3-5)
The Eagles won their bye within the division as the two active divisional opponents suffered losses in week 9 while the Eagles took a much needed break to get healthy after getting a tough win in London against the Jaguars. Doug Pederson will try to use some of his mentor’s bye week magic to come out and get another win as the Eagles return to the friendly confines of Lincoln Financial Field for Sunday Night Football. The Eagles improved their team on their week off adding WR Golden Tate in a trade with the Lions. Tate will get his first taste of the Eagles Cowboys rivalry as he tries to make an impact with his team. Look for Pederson to use Tate in a number of ways to get him involved early especially on screens and jet sweeps to put him in space, also don’t be surprised to see him returning a couple punts with Carter being released and picked up and Sproles reinjuring his hamstring. The Cowboys improved at WR as well at the deadline trading a first round pick for WR Amari Cooper. The Cowboys were able to get Cooper involved early last week with his first TD as a Cowboy, but it wasn’t enough as the Cowboys fell to the Titans 28-14 to the Titans. It was a rough game for Dak Prescott, who was sacked 5 times while giving up a fumble and throwing and INT in the endzone. Dak won’t get any reprieve as he will have face a fierce Eagles pass rush that sacked Prescott 4 times the last time they both faced off with the starters. Dak has struggled this year, but some of the blame has to be on the Cowboys coaching staff whose play calling has been predictable at times. If that trend continues expect the Cowboys offense to struggle against the Eagles defensive front especially when Dak holds onto the ball longer on average than every other QB at 2.83. The Eagles have only played 1 QB that has held onto the ball for an average longer than 2.40 seconds. That was Blake Bortles, who they sacked 4 times. The Eagles blitzed Bortles more often than other QBs, so that trend may continue on Sunday Night. These two teams usually play each other tough and sloppy, so I expect more of the same especially on a national stage.

Eagles 0 - Cowboys 6
In a meaningless game where the Eagles were resting many key starters after locking up the number 1 seed the week before, the game was ugly. The Cowboys struggled to get anything going vs the Eagles backups with the Cowboys making the lone score in the game when Dak Prescott tossed a 20-yard touchdown pass to Brice Butler. Dan Bailey hooked the extra point and the Cowboys denied the Eagles a franchise record 14th win.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Eagles were on Bye last week.
Cowboys - Video – It was the Cowboys first game since trading a first round pick in next year’s draft for former first round pick Amari Cooper. The Cowboys got him involved early as Dak hit him with his first pass of the game and connected with him in the endzone on the Cowboys second possession. The Titans started off slow as Mariota fumbled the ball on their first two possessions. The Cowboys were unable to capitalize on the second fumble as Dak Prescott handed the ball right back throwing an INT in the endzone to Kevin Byard which sparked the sluggish Titans. It was a flashback for Cowboys fans and just as disheartening as the original as Byard mimicked TO’s celebration on the star logo from 18 years ago. Following the pick the Titans were able to march down the field and tie the game at 7, force a 3 and out by the Cowboys and take the lead on the following possession. The Cowboys answered on the following possession with a 23 yard TD from Dak to Hurns to send it into halftime tied. However, it was all Titans in the second half as they added 2 more TDs and shutdown the Cowboys offense to hold on for the win 28-14.

Stats to Know
DL Pass Rush Productivity
[Fletcher Cox is a beast. DeMarcus Lawrence is also a beast. Both could put up monster games in this coming matchup. First, I'd like to point out that only one player in the league has generated more pressure than Cox, so far, and that's Aaron Donald. In fact, the Eagles have 3 Defensive Linemen in the top 10 for total pressures created (D-Law is tied for 14th). When you look at the Defensive Linemen of just these two teams' pressure generation on a snap-weighted basis, however, Lawrence squeaks out the top spot...but then the Eagles fill out the next 4. When you consider that Dak Prescott is 34th/39 QBs with notable snaps in terms of completion percentage when under pressure, and the Cowboys will likely be shuffling OLmen's positions, due to injury, the Eagles DL should have a productive day. Unless Cooper and Beasley make the Eagles look silly, as they've shown the capability of doing, on quick throws. On the flip side, through six starts this season, Wentz has been sacked on 8.5% of his dropbacks, the ninth-worst mark in the NFL. League average is 6.5%, and last year Wentz was at 6 percent (cited from The Athletic).
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Offensive Line vs. Dallas Defensive Front
Considering the nature of this season for the Eagles this is a very important matchup the Eagles need to win. For all of the Cowboys faults they do have talent on defense that is better coached than it has been in the past with some difference makers that could cause fits for the Eagles banged up offensive line. Jason Peters is playing well on a torn bicep and Lane Johnson has been playing well on a high ankle sprain. Lane likely plays this Sunday with a grade 2 MCL sprain against one of the best EDGE rushers in the NFL in Demarcus Lawrence. Lawrence is a great athlete and incredibly long and disruptive on the edge; how well he plays typically tells you how well the Dallas defense will play as a unit any given week. That'll likely be amplified this Sunday given the injuries the Cowboys have on their defensive front. So far this week, DT David Irving hasn't practiced and likely won't play this Sunday which is a huge boost for the Eagles offensive line. Randy Gregory has flashed at times and is still a work in progress but he hasn't been practicing either and will likely be out. Taco Charlton stinks so his absence likely won't be noticed. Last year Lane Johnson shut down Demarcus Lawrence in the one Cowboys game that mattered - the blowout in Dallas. This was no small feat considering how good both players are. Lane has been a man on a mission since injuring his ankle and will enter the game Sunday more banged up against a great opponent. If Lawrence is very disruptive it can have ripple effects. The Cowboys defensive front is a disciplined unit without explosive pass rushing depth but do well in run defense allowing their young LBs to flow to the ball. They will likely be without Sean Lee as per usual but Jaylon Smith appears to have returned at least close to his pre-injury form and LVE has been solid as a rookie. The Eagles offensive line has been quite good this season despite some notable high-profile mistakes - do not let the anyone tell you otherwise. They face a weakened opponent they should fare well against generally but the key will be shutting down Demarcus Lawrence.
Eagles Defensive Line vs. Cowboys Offensive Line
Remember the time Cowboys fans were hootin and hollerin that anyone can run behind that line? Good times. Now, anyone can beat that line. Times have changed in Dallas; the once invincible offensive line is suspect for a number of different reasons despite still being pretty good overall. Tyron Smith is still a good LT for the Cowboys but his nagging back problems seemed to have sapped him of some of the ability that made him truly elite. Rookie Connor Williams has been pretty poor this year despite his talent. He still has the frame of a tackle but is playing guard and getting bullied in the process. Williams is also hurt and may not play this week forcing Dallas to use weaker depth. Travis Frederick is still out battling GBR unfortunately and Zack Martin has been limited in practice this week. I say it is still a good offensive line due to the poor play of OLs in the NFL in general but it isn't near the level it has been in the past and can't hide the mistakes of it's flawed QB. Despite injuries, the Eagles defensive line it still a very disruptive force and a difference maker for the defense overall. Fletcher Cox has been playing at an All Pro level with Michael Bennett also being a disruptive force. Brandon Graham is still a very good edge player with Chris Long still being excellent in the rotation. Injuries have forced the Eagles hand a bit limiting the rotation they like to use but are still very disruptive in spite of that. On the season, Dak Prescott has a 10.53% sack rate good for worst in the NFL. Some of that is certainly on the offensive line playing worse than it has in the past with middling talent at some spots; some of that is also Dak who has no feel for pressure in the pocket whatsoever. Furthermore, Dak has an average time to throw of 2.83 seconds which is almost at the bottom in the NFL. That rate is nearly a half second longer than the average time to throw the Eagles defensive line has faced this season. This is a big opportunity for the Eagles defensive line to set the offense up in good position forcing Dak into making mistakes he is prone to make against pressure while making their already vanilla game plan even more predictable in less than ideal situations. Additionally, the defensive line should be able to feast on an offensive line that is struggling with consistency and predictability in the run game. Ezekiel Elliott is still an elite RB but isn't nearly as dominant a rusher as he can be thanks in large part to simple offensive designs with poor OL play. Assuming no schematic changes for the Cowboys offense in this game, everyone knows what they are going to do. The Eagles have the defensive line to disrupt the entire Cowboys offensive game plan and can go a long way in ensuring a second NFCE win on the season.
Eagles Offensive Weapons vs Cowboys Secondary
One area where the Cowboys have shown some real improvement is in the secondary thanks in large part to Kris Richard joining the staff from the Seahawks. He had the bright idea of moving Byron Jones to cornerback from safety since he saw he was obviously better suited for that role. Why it took as long as it did for the Cowboys to make that change I'll never understand; Jones immediately started playing well outside and has been one of the best CBs in the NFL this year. He isn't flawless but he overall athletic ability allows him to be sticky in coverage versus anyone. One area to his game where he seems to struggle is with physicality from Wide Receivers. He can be bodied at times. Chidobe Awuzie is another CB for the Cowboys who has grown as a player from year one to year two. Jourdain Lewis is another young and talented corner. The unit as a whole hasn't been great in pass defense but it is more talented than it has been in some time. The Eagles have an elite QB in Carson Wentz; the addition of Golden Tate to a a good receiving group that includes two excellent TEs should help bring out the best in the offense. Tate will allow Agholor to be a little more of a downfield threat than he has been to date this season while opening up the underneath for Wentz. Zach Ertz is having a monster season and is always open. Dallas Goedert is having a good rookie campaign for the Eagles this season. Alshon Jeffery has been the reliable playmaker outside Eagles fans have craved for. This Cowboys defense can be beat through the air and has been on a few occasions this year. It's not an easy coverage scheme to move the ball against but the Eagles have the weapons to take advantage of them, especially at tight end.
Eagles Secondary vs Cowboys Passing Offense
This is a key matchup for the Eagles largely due to the play of the unit as a whole this season coupled with the myriad of injuries the secondary has faced. The Cowboys weapons as a group is really uninspiring but the addition of Amari Cooper has made this matchup a little trickier. There is no denying that trading a first round pick for Amari Cooper was very shortsighted and pretty stupid. Especially when you consider the Cowboys are actually a middling team with poor coaching. Despite that, Cooper does have the talent to at least be good for the Cowboys and flashed that ability last week against the Titans. Has Cooper been the elite receiver he was drafted to be? No, but he's still quite good and can be a problem for the Eagles secondary that has been up and down this season. The Eagles will be without Jalen Mills and likely Sidney Jones this week. Rasul Douglas will get his first start this season. Douglas was up and down when he came in for Mills against the Jags but still flashes the ball skills that made him a fun prospect to study. Darby had a rough early season for the Eagles but has played quite well the last several weeks and will need him to do that again. It is difficult to project who will play in the slot for the Eagles this week. Being down a number of bodies is far from ideal for the secondary but this should still be a favorable matchup outside of Amari Cooper. Dallas doesn't have any tight end worth mentioning. Dallas doesn't also use Elliott as a receiver nearly enough. Cole Beasley is limited receiver but effective in his role. This is a matchup the Eagles need to win consistently given the favorable opponent. The Cowboys just have little in the way of game changing weapons.

2018.10.30 09:14 CoreyRW FIXING THE BROWNS (Part 1--2017 offseason)

Take yourself back to January of 2017...the Falcons are about to blow a huge Super Bowl lead, the Raiders are talking about moving to Las Vegas, and the Cleveland Browns narrowly avoid going 0-16 in their first year under new Head Coach, Hue Jackson.

A group of friends and I get talking about the NFL, as you do, and the popular topic of conversation is how poorly the Browns have been managed for...well...as long as we can remember. Eventually we declare, in typical armchair quarterback fashion, "I could run the Browns better." We begin to talk about the changes we might make to such a defunct team, and eventually I say, "What if we actually tried seeing what we could do with the Browns if we ran it?" Some of the guys jump on board right away, a few others are a bit incredulous, and want to know what I mean.

The premise: We, as a small group of friends, make group decisions on moves to make for the Browns. We do Free Agency for them, make picks in the draft for them, and then set the roster and depth charts. We simulate our results using up-to-date rosters via multiple tools (Madden, Front Office Football, and Draft Day Sports: Pro Football), average the results from these simulations, and then "prove" our results via real-life individual player performance/stats. Is it a perfect system? Of course not. But it still provides a fun "what if?"

We pitch the idea to a few other NFL-fan buddies and our group is around 14/15-strong as we start just after the Super Bowl.

PROCESS/RULES #1 - ACTUAL BROWNS MOVES: If the Browns make a move in real life, we vote on making the same move or not. This is mostly for trades or signings. We know if we want to release a player, but if the real Browns (who we refer to as "TRB") make a notable cut, we want to discuss potentially doing the same or not with our Browns (who we refer to as "OB").
(To save time, I will not comment on which moves TRB made that we also made. I will just note moves they did that we didn't "approve" or moves we made independently)
Feb 28, 2017 - Instead of releasing WR Terrelle Pryor and DE Stephen Paea, we sign them to one-year contract extensions, accepting the cap penalty for doing so*.
*PROCESS/RULES #2 - SIGNING PLAYERS TO OUR BROWNS: We made a few rules to keep this from being ridiculous and out of control, and here is a key one. First of all, OB cannot sign a player unless they signed with a team in real life that is moderately close to our ability. We determine this by W-L, and the cutoff is "within 5 wins." Coming off a 1-15 season, only players who signed with 6-10 teams (or worse) in real life were eligible to be signed by us. The premise behind this rule is that players would not want to go to a crappy team who won't compete, so it's unrealistic to try and claim we could "win them" over the good teams. EXCEPTION: We could retain players who were already on our team, but the following rules still affected those contacts. Furthermore, to represent the financial backing it would take to convince a player to join a 1-15 team, the better the team was they signed with, the higher the cap hit for us. It is +10% for every +1 win they have more than us. So if we decide to sign a player who signed with a 2-14 team in real life, we take their real contract and add 10%. If we decide to sign a player who signed with a 6-10 team in real life, we take their real contract and add 50% to it. This felt like a good system to keep our moves realistic/feasible to what a basement-dwelling team could really do in free agency.
March, 2017 - We did NOT sign WR James Wright, DL Jamie Meder, or K Brett Maher, as TRB did.
April 7, 2017 - Our first moves of free agency were to sign QB Brian Hoyer, WR Kendall Wright, and CB A.J. Bouye. Hoyer had signed with SF, so he was +10%, Wright had signed with CHI, so he was +20%, and Bouye signed with JAX so he was +20%.
PROCESS/RULES #3 - NFL DRAFT: We talk a lot heading into the draft because we play it realistically. Our draft position depends on where OB's record was from the previous season (so identical to TRB in the first draft, naturally). Once we are on the clock, we need to make our pick ASAP. If we dilly-dally at all, and someone is taken with a later pick, we can't take that person. We stick to this very strictly and don't "cheat" by waiting to see when a player is really taken. Sometimes we make real stretches, sometimes we get guys just in time. Also, draft-day trades...if a trade happens involving TRB and we can make the same trade, we will quickly discuss if we do it or just keep the existing pick(s). If we can't match the exact trade, but can offer better value, this is also allowed (for example: TRB trade picks 33 and 59. We don't have 59, but we do have 48. We can accept the trade TRB made for OB, but we trade 33 and 48 instead, because we are giving up more). We only do this for picks, never in assuming "value" of a player to another team. We can also do the same thing if another team makes a trade we can beat. If the Titans trade away their 28th and 41st picks, and we like what they get in return, we can choose to trade absolutely better value (say...the 24th and 39th) in their place. The theory is that the other team would of course make a better trade with us if offered. We will even trade away a pick we had just recently made, but ONLY if that player has not yet been taken. The idea here is that we have no idea where they will end up going in the draft and if we were really the GM's in the war room, we would be calling up teams and talking trades before making picks--something we clearly don't have the luxury of actually doing. Still, if our chosen player was taken at all, we cannot trade away that pick, as it is entering the "cheaty" realm.
April 27, 2017 - Day 1 of the NFL Draft - We took DE Myles Garrett #1 overall, same as TRB, but that is where our similarities ended. With #25 overall we took LB Reuben Foster, and with #29 overall we took OT Cam Robinson.
April 28, 2017 - Day 2 of the NFL Draft - We took LB Zach Cunningham #52 overall and CB Fabian Moreau #65 overall.
April 29, 2017 - Day 3 of the NFL Draft - We took CB Desmond King #145 overall, QB Brad Kaaya #176 overall, DL Elijah Qualls #182 overall, CB Jeremy Cutrer #185 overall, and then OG Damien Mama #188 overall.
PROCESS/RULES #4 - UNDRAFTED FREE AGENTS: This is a similar process to Free Agency--we can offer UDFA contracts to players who were offered them by the teams "within range" of our W-L.
PROCESS/RULES #5 - NEW PLAYER CONTRACTS: Suppose we take a player in the 3rd round who actually falls to the 6th round. If that happens in real life, you can't offer the guy 6th-round money and expect him to be happy about it. Or say we draft a guy #10 overall and he really goes #40. Same thing. So just taking a rookie's contract straight-up isn't exactly "accurate" to our situation. To accommodate this, rookie contracts are determined by averaging three real-life contracts: the actual player, the actual draft position, and the player of the same position drafted closest to our draft position. So this balances, for example, "The contract Zach Cunningham received", "The contract the 52nd-overall pick received" and "The contract a Linebacker at around 52nd pick received." It could end up being a small difference, but we wanted to make sure we aren't setting ourselves up for obvious success with all of these rules.
April 30, 2017 - We offer UDFA contracts to OLs Collin Buchanan, Jake Eldrenkamp and Tobijah Hughley, LBs JoJo Mathis and Kenneth Olugbode, and S Weston Steelhammer.
May, 2017 - We DID NOT sign the following players TRB signed in this month: RB Matthew Dayes; TE Taylor McNamara; OLs Josh Boutte, Rod Johnson, Chris Barker; DLs Jamal Marcus, Karter Schult, Larry Ogunjobi, Caleb Brantley; LBs B.J. Bello, Ladell Fleming; DBs J.D. Harmon, Alvin Hill, Kai Nacua, Channing Stribling, Howard Wilson, Donte Carey, Najee Murray, Jason McCourty; PK Zane Gonzalez. We also DID NOT waive K Brett Maher (though, to be fair, we had never signed him).
June 2, 2017 - We DID NOT approve the trade of LB Demario Davis to the New York Jets for DB Calvin Pryor, opting to keep Davis and his contract instead.
June/July, 2017 - We DID NOT sign the following players TRB signed these months (some of which because we obviously didn't draft them): QB DeShone Kizer, RB Terrence Magee, RB Brandon Wilds, WR Richard Mullaney, TE David Njoku, LB Deon King, DB Jabrill Peppers, CB Chris Lewis-Harris. We also DID NOT release the following players (though, again, to be fair we hadn't signed most of them to begin with): RB Darius Jackson, RB George Atkinson III, DB Tyvis Powell, CB Taurean Nixon.
August 1, 2017 - We waived WR Ronnie Moore, OLs Collin Buchanan and Tobijah Hughley, LB JoJo Mathis, and DBs Jeremy Cutrer and Weston Steelhammer.
August, 2017 - We DID NOT sign the following players TRB signed this month: WR Rasheed Bailey, TE Nate Iese, DL Brandon Thompson, DB Christian Bryant. We also DID NOT release the following players TRB released/waived: WR James Wright, DL Desmond Bryant, and most notably CB Joe Haden. We opted to keep him and his contract for now.

Ok, that's it for part 1 before I drag on too long. If you guys are finding this intriguing I can continue with our 2017 final roster and results, and then onward into 2018.

  • WCW remains in chaos this week. The company offered unconditional releases to Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero, Perry Saturn, Shane Douglas, and Konnan which would free them up to start with WWF as soon as Feb. 1st. A condition of the releases was that they not publicly disparage WCW and agreed not to sue WCW for any reason. But when it came time to actually sign the paperwork, both Konnan and Douglas backed down, due to fear of leaving their lucrative WCW deals and uncertainty over whether or not they'd be welcomed in WWF. Douglas contacted Steve Austin to try to see if there was interest from WWF and was basically given the idea that they would take him, but then Douglas' lawyer advised against it, so he chose to stay. As for Konnan, he claimed he was just sticking by his friends and never actually asked for his release. But Bill Busch felt differently and there's a lot of heat there and Konnan may not be welcomed back in WCW even if he doesn't sign his release. The other 4 men had a meeting scheduled with McMahon and Jim Ross last week but it got postponed due to weather. McMahon told them to keep everything quiet, so all 4 men cut off contact with pretty much everyone else in the business, including Shane Douglas, who was upset at feeling like his friends left him out in the cold and didn't even tell him they were meeting with Vince. When Douglas found out, he called Malenko, who told Douglas they were in Florida. But then Douglas called the hotel they were staying at in Stamford and got confirmation that they were there, so he was upset at being lied to by his friends and claims he's more hurt than angry. He says he stuck his neck out to support them when they all went to Busch together as a group, but then they all cut him off when shit got real. To be fair, they all said that they were under the impression Douglas wanted to stay with WCW. McMahon's idea was to keep everything hush-hush and try to get people to think that all 4 men were planning to return to WCW, thus making it a bigger surprise when they eventually show up on WWF TV. No word on what the plan is yet, but it's believed all 4 men will come in together as a group, in some sort of interpromotinal-style WCW invasion angle. It's believed a deal was reached with all 4 and they should be starting soon, although Eddie Guerrero has been telling people that he may be going to NJPW instead, but it's still unknown for sure.
  • Vince Russo also had a meeting with Bill Busch this week, making a series of demands. He either wants to be released from his contract (which still has nearly 2 years on it) or to be given his job back as head booker with full control, and not be forced to work alongside Kevin Sullivan or JJ Dillon. He also demanded he be given another 9 months to continue booking the show without interference from anyone else (when Russo was hired, he was basically told he'd be given a year to turn things around but he just got the boot after 3 months, so he wants the other 9 months). At press time, no decision has been made but Russo wasn't at the TV tapings last week. There's still rumors throughout the company of this person or that person getting so-and-so's job or position and basically no one backstage really knows who's running things anymore.
  • WWF's Royal Rumble is in the books and was an uneventful show news-wise, but a great in-ring show. They sold out MSG with a gate of over $1.14 million, making it the 6th largest ever in the U.S. and the buyrate is expected to be monstrous. Cactus Jack vs. Triple H in a street fight was fantastic, but left Dave wondering about how much violence is too much when it comes to satisfying an audience that is totally desensitized to people killing themselves to get a pop. Dave rants again about the dangers of unprotected chair shots to the head and also talks about the use of barbed wire in this match, which the New York state commission had banned ECW from using just a few weeks ago. Gotta love the double standard. Triple H got a gash in his calf muscle somehow. But it was a legit match of the year candidate and probably should have closed the show. Nudity was promised and delivered in the form of 77-year old Mae Young in a bikini contest (Miss Kitty had a bubble wrap bikini). Andy Richter was one of the judges for this. Tazz made his debut against Kurt Angle and the match was on the verge of being really good before ending and Dave thinks they should have gotten more time. Angle in particular came off like a superstar and Tazz got a lot of ECW chants. The Dudleyz vs. Hardyz tables match was really good. Taka Michinoku was legit injured during the Rumble match when he took a hard face-first bump outside the ring. He and Funaki were scheduled to make multiple run-ins during the match but after he was injured, he couldn't do it. So every time he was supposed to do his normal run-in spot, they just kept replaying the footage of Taka getting injured instead while Lawler cackled about it like it was a joke. In case you're wondering, Taka had to go to the hospital and will be out for awhile so...ha ha? Anyway, Rock won the Rumble and will main event Wrestlemania, presumably against Triple H.
  • Obituary for Al Costello, one of the most famous Australian wrestlers ever and half of the Fabulous Kangaroos tag team. He was 80 and died from...being 80, I guess. Heart problems, Alzheimer's, pneumonia, you name it. He had it all at the end. Anyway, Dave recaps his career and the Kangaroos are widely recognized for popularizing tag team wrestling back in the 50s, if not outright inventing it. The usual long, interesting in-depth bio.
  • And another obituary for WCW wrestler Bobby Duncam Jr. who died this week at 34 years old from a drug overdose. Duncam Jr. had been out of action for several months recovering from surgery and had been off TV long enough that WCW barely felt the need to acknowledge his death. He leaves behind 2 kids and a wife with whom he was in the process of divorcing. He most recently appeared for WCW as part of the West Texas Rednecks group with Curt Hennig prior to his injury. Duncam Jr. was well-known to have pill problems, especially somas, and WCW was aware. At one point, they had forced him to sign a document agreeing to go to rehab and would only receive partial pay until he completed his rehab. He signed it and his wife had also been urging him to go, but he never went and denied that he had a problem. He had been to AA meetings in the past and in recent weeks, with nothing but free time due to his injury and guaranteed WCW money still rolling in, he went into a downward spiral of drugs and alcohol. As usual, Dave recaps his life and career.
  • WWF has pulled their developmental territory deal away from Power Pro Wrestling in Memphis (which is run by promoter Randy Hales) and instead given it to Jerry Lawler's new Memphis Championship Wrestling promotion which will be starting this week and will go head-to-head against PPW. The whole story is weird but basically, Lawler convinced McMahon to make the change. Lawler was originally involved in starting up Power Pro with Hales. The promotion was supposed to be run by both of them, but at the time it started, Lawler was still tied up in a bunch of legal mess over the death of USWA. So in all the paperwork, Power Pro was 100% Hales promotion, and Lawler was unofficially helping to run it. But as tends to happen, there was friction between Hales and Lawler and since Lawler wasn't on the paperwork, he had no power over Hales when it came to anything. Plus Lawler was furious over the comments Doug Gilbert made about him on Power Pro TV a couple months ago (about Lawler raping a little girl) and had threatened to sue. So the relationship fell apart and Lawler decided to start his own promotion and got a TV deal on another local Memphis channel to run in direct competition against Hales. WWF not only provided talent to Power Pro, but they also covered some insurance costs and provided the ring they used for TV tapings. WWF is taking their ring back and giving it to Lawler instead. Hales was pretty much running a promotion on no budget, since most of the wrestlers were WWF developmental guys that worked in Memphis and Louisville (in OVW) and the TV station paid Hales a weekly fee for the show. But now he has no more WWF wrestlers and doesn't even have a ring at the moment. The regulars (Steve Bradley, Rico Constantino, Nick Dinsmore, Flash, Robbie D, and Scotty Sabre) have all been pulled and will work Lawler's shows now instead. WWF is sending several other wrestlers, most notably Kurt Angle, to work Lawler's first MCW taping. As for Power Pro, they're in a tough spot. Randy Hales doesn't have money to throw around and they were totally dependent on WWF so if he wants to continue running, he's going to have to find wrestlers who are willing to practically work for free (they continue limping along for a little while longer, but this was pretty much the death blow. MCW doesn't last terribly long either. Both companies eventually come together and do an inter-promotional angle in 2001 but they both still die soon after).
  • Ratings are more of the same. Nitro did near record-low numbers while Raw beat them by a bunch. Nitro was coming off a PPV and by all rights it should have done in the 3.7 range. But instead it did a 2.98 which is shockingly low and was the 2nd worst Nitro rating ever. The news wasn't any better for Thunder, as ratings dropped significantly for it this week also. Meanwhile, Smackdown did its 3rd highest rating ever. ECW also set its all-time ratings record on TNN, doing a 1.24. Still not in WCW range or anything, but ECW ratings are steadily inching up week-by-week (I still wonder what their ratings might have been like if they weren't stuck in the death slot on Friday nights).
  • Giant Baba's widow Motoko Baba recently had to pay more than $700,000 in inheritance taxes due to Baba's mansion in Japan and multiple vacation homes in Hawaii which are all valued at more than $8 million.
  • Wrestling movie news: Beyond The Mat will open in theaters nationwide in March and Jim Carrey won a Golden Globe for portraying Andy Kaufman in Man on the Moon.
  • Ian Rotten is starting back up his IWA promotion (they've been shut down since August) and will be running weekly hardcore shows in Charleston, IN. Rotten owns the new building they'll be doing shows at, so he won't run into problems anymore with finding venues that will allow his gorefest matches.
  • A promotion called WXO started running TV shows in about 80 markets by buying syndication deals in them. Ted Dibiase is the figurehead CEO of the company. Stan Lane and Chris Cruise do announcing and Barry Horowitz and Barry Darsow are booking it. The shows actually have decent production value and there's clearly some money behind it, but it's already floundering. They already cancelled their 2nd TV taping. They push it as family-friendly wrestling and it's sorta like the old AWF promotion a couple of years ago. The wrestlers are all pretty much just washed up 80s guys or more recent WWF/WCW curtain-jerker rejects (yeah this dies out quick, they never do another taping).
  • XPW is running a show in L.A. this week featuring celebrity appearances by KoRn lead singer Jonathan Davis, porn star Ron Jeremy and Danzig band member Josh Lazie.
  • Insane Clown Posse's Juggalo Championshit Wrestling (not a typo) will be releasing a video of the event they held last month in Detroit. Raven, Balls Mahoney, Abdullah The Butcher, King Kong Bundy, Iron Sheik, and more all make appearances (if you haven't seen this before, what are you doing with your life? ICP on commentary alone makes this a must-watch). Also on their website, ICP announced that Vampiro is planning to leave WCW to wrestle full time for JCW and they plan to self-finance the company and tour nationally with it. Dave doesn't seem like he expects Vampiro to walk away from his guaranteed WCW paycheck to go wrestle for ICP.
WATCH: Juggalo Championshit Wrestling, Vol. 1
  • Following the success of Sable in Playboy, apparently Penthouse is looking for any female wrestler who is willing to pose for their magazine.
  • Speaking of Sable, she's currently working on a new show called The Consultants, which will star her, NBA star Dennis Rodman, karate star Jeff Speakman and former WBC boxing champ Jeremy Williams (I don't think this ever came to fruition but even two years later in 2002, I found an interview with her talking about it. So apparently they tried for a long time to get that show off the ground).
  • Axl Rotten appeared at a CZW show and cut a promo trashing ECW and using some "ethnic slurs" about Paul Heyman (Rotten doesn't like the Jews apparently. Or at least, that particular Jew).
  • At the latest ECW TV taping, they filmed an angle that won't air on ECW TV but will instead air in Japan for FMW. It saw FMW president Shoichi Arai get into an argument with Paul Heyman, with the gimmick being that Heyman stole Masato Tanaka from FMW. Arai eventually attacked Heyman, but was taken out by Balls Mahoney, Sal E. Graziano and Roadkill, who beat up Arai until police showed up. Those 3 guys are expected to travel to Japan soon to work some FMW shows and the angle is expected to make them top heels there (can't find footage of this).
  • Hulk Hogan is now telling people that he will never return to WCW because he was upset with their latest contract offer. He wants to go back under the terms of his previous deal. WCW is planning to do Hogan vs. Luger at SuperBrawl next month but who knows now. Hogan is still under contract for 6 more PPV dates. In fact, WCW is pretty much desperate to get as many big names as they can for the next PPV because the buyrate for Souled Out came in worse than expected and it's now the lowest buyrate in the history of WCW or WWF (and in fact, is lower than any of UFC's buyrates ever also). In fact, the Souled Out buyrate is in the ballpark of most ECW PPVs. So who knows if Hogan is coming back or not, but it's Hogan so Dave says to take anything he claims with a grain of salt (yup. Hogan is back for SuperBrawl, against Luger).
  • Ric Flair has been talking about running for governor of North Carolina and has to make a final decision this week. Word is he's leaning against it, despite a lot of mainstream news coverage talking about the possibility lately. A newspaper poll in Greensboro found that 25% of the voters said they would vote for him, while another poll in Charlotte was at 39%. Speaking of Flair, he once again asked for his release from WCW, pointing out that they freely released Benoit, Guerrero, etc. when they asked. But WCW shot it down, so Flair's still stuck.
  • Notes from Nitro: Tank Abbott and Torrie Wilson were pretty much the only 2 people on this show who even got a pop from the crowd. Scott Hall was doing his drunk "act" again and seemed to be hamming it up to the point that Dave suspects he was trying to get sent home yet again so he can stay on his couch and collect his check. Terry Funk did an Asai moonsault and Dave assures us that he's not making that up. Christopher Daniels had a dark match try-out before the show. And during a commercial break, Miss Hancock came out and went over to the DJ that spins during commercial breaks and began dancing, which is totally out of character for her gimmick.
  • Goldberg appeared on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher and came off like a normal, intelligent person, which is unfortunately rare for pro wrestlers in this sort of setting.
  • Doctors have told Bret to stay out of the ring for at least 2 months following his severe concussion at Starrcade last month. He is still not even allowed to fly so he hasn't been able to travel to TV tapings lately either. The plan for SuperBrawl was Hart vs. Sid Vicious for the WCW title but they're clearly going to have to come up with something else now (unbeknownst to anyone at the time of course, Hart's career was already over).
  • One of the big issues where Vince Russo and Kevin Sullivan clashed was over how to use Goldberg. Russo wanted to keep the title off of Goldberg for as long as possible, feeling that there's more money in him chasing the belt. Sullivan wanted to put the title on Goldberg immediately, as soon as his arm heals and he can get back in the ring. Dave thinks that, if booked correctly, Russo's idea is clearly the better option. Of course, the caveat there is "if booked correctly" and WCW can't seem to get through a 2-hour Nitro without tripping over their own dicks, much less plan a lengthy and cohesive long-term storyline, so....
  • This sort of leads Dave on a small rant about the whole booking mess. The internet department at WCW loved Russo because he kept them in the loop on all the angles and used the WCW website to try to push things, because Russo loves booking for internet fans. Meanwhile, Sullivan never kept them in the loop. It led to a lot of people within the production side of the company praising Russo as a creative genius who wasn't given a fair shake to turn WCW around, but of course, after 3 months, things in WCW were clearly not even close to turning around and in a lot of ways, they were getting worse. But Dave thinks replacing him with Sullivan was also a bad idea because everyone knows how the wrestlers feel about Sullivan and the resulting near-mutiny was predictable. They should have known that guys like Benoit were going to be upset about it and now they lost at least 4 talented young stars because of it who are headed to WWF. Dave compares WCW now to AWA in the late-80s. Everyone wants out and title belts are having to change hands constantly due to unforeseen things (such as your new world champion quitting the day after he wins the belt) and no continuity to anything. WCW is just a toxic mess right now and they're spinning the drain. Now they're in cost-cutting mode and Dave wonders how much longer the suits at Turner are going to want to keep propping up this fledgling shit-show (spoiler: about a year).
  • WCW had a legends night show a few weeks ago in Buffalo and came very close to making a deal to bring in Bruno Sammartino, but it got nixed at the last minute. It was the episode where Jeff Jarrett faced 3 legends in the same night and Sammartino was agreeable to being one of the legends and would have wrestled Jarrett. WCW's legal department shot down the idea due to the belief that Sammartino is planning to testify against WCW in a lawsuit filed against them by Nasty Boy Jerry Sags, who claimed he suffered a career-ending injury in a match with Scott Hall. Sammartino's name appeared on a witness list in the lawsuit but Bruno denied that he ever planned to testify on Sags behalf and in fact has asked to be removed from the list. But WCW's legal people still didn't want to take the chance so they shot down the idea of bringing him in for the show. Instead, Tito Santana, George Steele, and Jimmy Snuka all did the show instead.
  • The fitness model women who have been hanging around the NWO are: Kim Kanner, Melinda O'Hearn, Pamela Paulshock and Tylene Buck (Kanner becomes known as Shikira and was one of Scott Steiner's freaks during this time. Melinda O'Hearn is Midajah, another of Steiner's women. Pamela Paulshock became a backstage interviewer for WCW. And Tylene Buck eventually becomes Major Gunns and later did porn).
  • ESPN did a breakdown of the demographics of viewers of both WWF and WCW. Turns out WWF's audience still skews younger. WCW's fanbase is more heavily male and white. WWF has a slightly larger African American following. They're both pretty equal when it comes to Latino popularity, which is crazy considering how much WCW has featured Luchador wrestlers over the years (although always in lower-card matches).
  • WCW brought back the KISS Demon character at the Saturday Night tapings, but this time Dale Torborg was playing the role instead of Brian Adams.
  • Steve Austin is already working out post-surgery and is running on a treadmill already. He's been told he should make a full recovery but told him he'll need about 6 months to recover. Austin is hoping to be back in 3 months (not even close).
  • Notes from Raw: Tazz made his Raw debut choking out Angle again. The show was in Philadelphia and Tazz got a huge response and massive ECW chants. They showed Darren Drozdov visiting backstage, which is really the first real acknowledgement on TV that he was ever injured in the first place. And Rikishi has gotten over huge in record time and the fans are buying into him as a legit main eventer.
  • Random WWF notes: Chyna will be appearing on the TV show Third Rock From The Sun soon. WWF New York, their restaurant in Times Square, had their big grand opening last week and basically every star in the company was there. The band Sugar Ray performed, the Rock cut promos, and a bunch of other wacky shit. WWF is considering bringing in Val Venis' sister (and Edge's fiance) Alannah Morley to play a role on TV (didn't happen). Amy Dumas and Papi Chulo worked together in some dark matches last week, and will be debuting on TV together soon.
  • Opie and Anthony are still throwing a tantrum about the Rock walking off their show a few weeks ago during an interview so they showed up to the grand opening of WWF New York and tried to get in but were denied entry. Then they started making a bunch of jokes saying that WWF New York serves Owen Hart burgers, which are dropped from the ceiling, Droz Dogs which are served in a cart, and giant steroid filled chicken. On WWF's Byte This show, Kevin Kelly spent half the show trashing Opie & Anthony in response. Dave suspects it's all a work because Rock is scheduled to go back on O&A's show soon and thinks they're just trying to drum up controversy ahead of their big Rock interview after the drama from last time he was on the show. That being said, Dave thinks it would be pretty tasteless for WWF to be involved in any kind of publicity stunt with guys who are making those sorts of comments about Owen and Droz, so maybe it's not a work.
  • WWF reportedly paid for 3 commercials during this year's Super Bowl (at a cost of more than $4.5 million) but one of them was rejected by ABC and will air on USA during Raw instead because it was deemed too risque. The other 2 are expected to air during the game (I can only find one of the commercials, and this weird advertisement website is the only place I can find it):
WATCH: WWF Miss Congeniality commercial - SuperBowl 2000
  • Longtime WWF front office employee and former wrestler Arnold Skaaland is said to be in bad shape from prostate cancer. (He hangs on for another 7 years. Durable prostate, I guess.)
  • Random Dave musing, as he casually wonders how long it will take some of the top WWF stars to start complaining that Chris Benoit "doesn't know how to work 'main event' style" when he shows up and starts wrestling circles around everyone (Dave and Chris Jericho recently talked about this on a podcast together. Basically, it was Triple H and that was exactly what he said. Because that's kind of the insecure and paranoid jerk he used to be back then).
FRIDAY: The Radicalz debut on Raw and a lot more on the drama surrounding their leaving WCW, The Rock's autobiography is released, controversy over Mae Young going "topless" at the Rumble, and more...

How did Rialto ever make it past playtesting
For the past week, attackers have won 49.97%.
Feels like devs hate tank players
I understand that you’re having some frustration with something. But saying we hate tanks is a bit hyperbolic. We love this game and pour everything we have into it. For example, these are my top tank heroes played with hours listed…
https://imgur.com/ugrtcF4
We play and love all of the roles and all of the heroes. A more helpful discussion would focus on what you like and don’t like about playing different heroes or roles and less about making assumptions about the people who make the game and are here as your allies to make OW better. We’re in it together…
Thanks for the input Jeff, are there any planned changes for any tank heroes coming down the line?
Yes, Roadhog changes were intended for this round of PTR but required animation so they’ve been delayed a bit. He’s not getting a “rework”… just some tuning/balancing. Will take a bit more time then the recent PTR changes that went up, however.

When will we have middle eastern and african servers
Hey there, we strongly believe in expanding our server infrastructure to give a better experience to more players. Overwatch launched on a mixture of our own private Blizzard cloud infrastructure and with one public cloud partner, Amazon AWS. Since launch we expanded to support China AWS for CNN1/Beijing and Telefonica for SAC1/Chile, SAA1/Argentina.
Establishing partnerships with new public cloud providers, or expanding our Blizzard infrastructure, is very involved. While I don't have any specific information about Middle East or Africa regions today, I wanted to let you know we hear the feedback. We're committed to expanding our server infrastructure, including into areas with an emerging player base.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend, cheers.

2018.03.22 13:18 True_North_Strong International Race Station Loop 9 - Around the Bay 30K

We finally make it to my home and native land, Canada. Hamilton, Ontario to be specific where the oldest running road race in North America takes place. So splash a little maple syrup in your coffee this morning as we go Around the Bay for 30K.
 

Around the Bay 30K

Date: March 25, 2018
Location: Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Years running: 109
# of Participants: 4,244 (2017)
Course Records:
Alene Reta Emere (ETH) 1:32:21
Lanni Marchant (CAN) 1:44:39

AREA/REGION

Located on the western end of Lake Ontario, Hamilton is home to a metro population of about 750,000 making it the ninth largest in Canada. Traditionally, the local economy has been led by the steel and heavy manufacturing industries. Within the last decade, there has been a shift towards the service sector, particularly health sciences. Things to see or do include:
A gritty city, Hamilton is certainly not everyone's top destination, but it has some hidden gems if you’re willing to search for them. If not, it’s location near Toronto and Niagara allows for you to explore different options and make a trip to the race worthwhile.

RACE PROFILE

Course map
Elevation Gain - ~95m (312 ft)

HISTORY

As quoted from the race website:
The Hamilton Herald Newspaper and cigar store owner "Billy" Carroll, originated and sponsored the first "Around the Bay Road Race", run on Christmas Day, 1894. It is now the oldest road race in North America, older than the Boston Marathon which was born three years after the Around the Bay Road Race. The race tested the abilities of the finest long distance runners, but was also an avenue to lay down some bets. The Around the Bay Road Race established Hamilton as a running mecca for long distance runners, and it was not uncommon for thousands of spectators to line the route to watch their local favourites start the race from the front of the Herald Newspaper Offices at 17 King Street West Hamilton.
In the early 1900's, Jack Caffery and William Sherring battled it out and won two "Bay" races each. Caffery went on to stun the Americans by winning the Boston Marathon in 1900. To add insult to injury, Hamilton's William Sherring and Fred Hughson placed second and third, behind Caffery, making it a Canadian sweep. Caffery rubbed it in even further by coming back the next year 1901, to win Boston again. Not to be outdone by Caffery, William Sherring went on to win the 1906 Olympic Marathon in Athens, Greece, making him a Canadian hero.
That same year, Tommy Longboat, an Onondaga from Six Nations near Caledonia, won the "Bay" race and the next year in 1907, surprised everyone by winning the Boston Marathon. Hamilton's James Duffy also went on to win the 1914 Boston Marathon, after two Consecutive Bay wins. The Americans gave the Bay race an International flavour when Sam Mellor and Mike Spring from New York each won the Bay race and then Boston in the same year. Frank Zuna, from New Jersey also won Boston in 1921 and then conquered the Bay in 1922 and 1923. The Canadians arrived back in the spotlight when Gerald Cote, a Quebec soldier, won the Bay and Boston in 1943, and Jerome Drayton won the Bay in 1973, 1974 and then Boston in 1977.
Scotty Rankine holds the distinguished honour of seven wins, established in the late thirties and early forties, while Peter Maher won his fifth Bay race in 1996, tying the record of local Gord Dickson, who had five wins in the late fifties. In 1997, the Bay race saw the closest finish ever, as Paul Mbugua of Kenya crossed the finish line in a time of 1:35:35, beating two other runners by a footstep.
In 2006 the Bay Race finish was moved indoors to the 15,000 seat FirstOntario Centre. Runners, family and friends are now able to view the finish in comfort. The Men's record was broken in 2010, by Alene Reta 1:32:22 who shaved 28 seconds off Simon Njorje's time. Lanni Marchant of London, ON broke the women's course record in 2013 with a time of 1:44:40 by trimming 1 minute 35 seconds off Lioudmila Kortchaguina's previous record of 1:46:15. The Around the Bay Road Race continues to be full of tradition and excitement, and this year will be no exception.

THIS YEAR

Like many of the smaller races I’ve covered it’s hard to find out if anyone notable is running in this year’s event. But with large cash prizes for the top 5 male and female finishers (1st=$4000, 2nd=$2000, 3rd=$1000), I’m certain there will be some fast runners looking to have good performances.
Loop 9 is looped.
Next week we will be headed to Africa for the first time in this series where we will cover the Two Oceans Marathon (which actually isn’t a marathon) in South Africa.
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

2018.03.16 02:55 SkeletonDude199 I'm writing a report for college about men's rights. What are the best sources I could possibly use? *Update*

I have finished the paper completely. I decided on narrowing the topic to specifically relate to male sexual assault and how the public treats male victims. After seven pages and many sources, I think it will be sufficient enough to recognize that men can get raped, too. Male Victims of Sexual Assault. One in six men will experience sexual assault before the age of 18(www.1in6.org). This is a statistic that has been downplayed by the same study that claims one in six women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime(www.nsopw.gov). Unfortunately, most sufferers, no matter the gender, do not report their cases to the authorities for several reasons, usually due to not being believed by their peers, not wanting to experience the tragedy again, etc.(www.RAINN.org). It is up to the general population to accept the fact that men can suffer, too. Male sexual assault victims have been downplayed by the mainstream media, ignored by their community when a woman is the perpetrator, and have been suffering in our prison system for over 40 years. Bill Maher, when talking about male sexual assault victims on one segment of the show called, “Real Time”, he deliberately makes fun of the idea that men are pussies if they don’t want to be coerced into sex with a woman. He even tells the audience that they have, “Lucky Bastard Syndrome”, and because he wanted to get laid so badly at one time, that means every guy wants it(powderroom.kinja.com). This doesn’t help the fact that the audience is laughing, being completely dumbfounded by the mere thought that men wouldn’t want sex every now and then. This is the kind of treatment male victims have in the eyes of the mainstream media. It is absolutely devastating to those who suffer in silence, seeing that their pain is not even considered a possibility. The FBI once did a Uniform Crime Report(UCR) on violent rapes across the United States in 2015. In their FAQ about the study(which has been taken down, but remnants of it exist thanks to colorlines.com), they were asked if men can be raped. This is, word for word, their reply. “No. The UCR Program defines forcible rape as “The carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will.” In addition, “By definition, sexual attacks on males are excluded from the rape category and must be classified as assaults or other sex offenses depending on the nature of the crime and the extent of injury”(www.colorlines.com). I don’t know what is more disgusting: The fact that our own government entities believe that men can’t be raped, or that people accepted this as a clear and concise answer. I will remind you that this was in 2015. Three years ago, our government did not believe that men could be raped, and I can’t find anything to suggest the idea that they might’ve changed their minds. In the court case Hermesmann versus Seyer, in 1993, Colleen Hermesmann successfully argues that a woman is entitled to sue the biological father for child support, even when conception occurred during the criminal act being brought on by the woman. The Kansas supreme court found it justified to sue the underaged biological father for child support, even though it wasn’t his fault(law.justia.com). He was 13 when she decided to rape him and have his kids. This is one of the worst court cases when it comes to sexual victims being forced by law to support their attacker. The law is still in place to this day. Thankfully, there are some lesser-known groups with little media attention regarding male victims. The Bristlecone Project is all about male victims and their stories(www.bristleconeproject.org). One of the first articles about male sexual assault was relating to the military(www.gq.com). The largest story relating to any kind of dignity for male victims of sexual assault would be back in 2010. Oprah had a segment relating to men and sexual assault in their childhood(www.oprah.com). This is definitely a step in the right direction, but notice that Bill Maher’s version of male sexual assault is more recognizable in the public eye that the media outlets previously mentioned. However, when it comes to female on male sexual assault, it’s not exactly weighted equally as male on female sexual assault, especially when it comes to sentencing lengths and fines. As stated above, the general population tends to not take rape cases against men seriously, especially if the perpetrator is female. In the same study Maher references, of the responders, 95% of perpetrators were female(psycnet.apa.gov). I will add to this by saying that this study was based off of men who were willing to speak out about their experience, and it is definitely a possibility that this statistic in particular could be skewed higher than what the general population of sexual assault victims and female perpetrators could be. For example, the National Crime Victimization Survey finds that the number is closer to 46%(journals.sagepub.com). However, I will admit that it’s surprising to see how only a few sources were able to bring this study up across the internet. It’s also been known to the whole of society that women get reduced sentences for the same crimes as men, if they’re even convicted at all. Along with sexual assault charges, a man will face a 63% longer sentence on average when committing the same crime as a woman(Estimating Gender Disparities in Federal Criminal Cases, Starr, pg. 1). This is a good example of female privilege, and how barely anyone is bothered by this, since, again, only a few sources have referenced this study. This is the story of a particular case involving a female perpetrator and a male victim. James Landrith, who was made to penetrate a female acquaintance in a hotel room while incapacitated from drinking, along with his rapist citing the fact that she was pregnant to advise him not to struggle, as this might hurt the baby. After the incident, he kept quiet about the whole ordeal. He knew that, as a society, we wouldn’t have believed him. After 20 years of staying silent, he began therapy in order to cope with the trauma(www.goodmenproject.com). Even after 20 years, he would still be afraid of being in a room with a woman. It went as as far as giving him panic attacks while standing in line behind a woman. Doesn’t this sound similar to female sexual assault victims? It’s interesting to point out that James is reportedly doing better than before, eventually getting his old job back, which is mostly made up of female workers. Another case of female on male sexual assault involves that of Kirk Anderson, who was involved in the Mormon faith. He went missing for a few days in 1977, only to reappear and report to police that he had been raped by a woman known as Joyce Brennan McKinney. You might recognize her name as she would later on pay $53,000 to clone her dog, Booger. After Kirk fled to the U.S., Joyce was sentenced to one year in jail. Because of the laws involving what constitutes rape in England at the time, she could only be charged with assault(www.thedenverpost.com). With these cases in particular, the perpetrators got off easy, and it doesn’t end there, especially when it comes to female teachers. Alison Peck, aged 23, worked at Greenfield High School in Greenfield, Missouri. She was convicted of statutory rape at a motel with her friend and a 16-year-old student on May 22nd, 2009, previously being charged in a different county for the same crime with the same kid. She was found guilty of both charges, yet spent no jail time. She had set bonds in multiple counties and her passport revoked. If the roles were reversed, you can bet that there would have been jail time. Abbie Jane Swogger, aged 34, was convicted of having sex with multiple underaged girls and boys, including some of her son’s friends in 2008 at Highlands Senior High School in Harrison, Pennsylvania. She was charged and sentenced to 3-to-6 years in jail, with 36 years probation. Sure, the probation itself is lengthy, but the jail time for raping 15-year-old kids is not nearly as high as if she were male. This next case is more reasonable, sentence-wise. Amy Beck, aged 33, was charged with having sex with a 14-year-old boy multiple times at David Starr Jordan Middle School, submitting to police on March 8th, 2010. She was sentenced to a maximum of seven years in California State Prison in 2010. This rapist is out now. She will probably never teach again, but just know that what she, along with these people, did was abhorrent, no matter your gender. The cases involving the teachers, as well as many others, can be found here(www.wnd.com). It is statistically proven that her male counterpart is more than likely still in jail, facing one of the worst kinds of sexual assault. Sexual assault in the American prison system is rampant, and people, on the outside, make fun of it every day. The Federal Bureau of Prisons report that between 9 and 20 percent of prisoners will be sexually assaulted during their incarceration. One of the important statistics to note is that 48% of sexual assaults in the prison system, both male and female, are committed by the prison guards, and yet, prosecution rates are low. Another statistic shows that 90% of sexual assault cases in male juvenile prisons were committed by female officers(www.bjs.gov). This is the definition of a rape culture. We are lucky on the outside, but inside is a cesspool of dated norms and primitive culture. When people bring up the notion of a rape culture on campus, I remind them of the horrifying way we treat human beings in captivity, along with their communities treating each other the same way, especially when it comes to sexual abuse. Human Rights Watch is an organization dedicated to making sure that no one’s personal safety is in danger of being lost/bringing aid to those whose rights have been lost. This includes helping sexual assault victims in prisons while keeping the prisoners who want to remain anonymous free from public recognition. They made a documentary about sexual assault in the male prisons. One of their cases involve an underaged inmate being sent to adult prisons and ending his own life from the tormentality of the prison system. The year was 1995. Rodney Hulin Jr. was only 17 when he was sodomized by an inmate. After the tragedy, he visited the prison doctor, who found two tears in his rectum, along with a request for HIV testing. Hulin wanted to be put into protective custody, but the warden denied his request, believing that he didn’t meet the, “emergency grievance criteria”. For the next few months, Hulin was beaten, robbed, and raped half to death by the other inmates. He couldn’t take the humility he has been put through, so he attempted suicide in his cell. He was put into a four-month-long coma, eventually dying of complications(www.hrw.org). The only reason he went to the adult prison is due to the idiocy of the judge, believing that arson was enough to kill this young man. Burning things for fun means being tortured by a system that no longer cares about you, leading to your demise. In 1978, T.J. Parcell is another case detailing the grueling state of sexual assault in prisons. After an impulsive prank, Parcell was arrested. The first night in jail, he was drugged and raped by another inmate. He describes his experience as such: “While my friends were getting ready for prom, I was getting raped.” The same article details that of Kendall Spruce, who, in 1991, was raped by 27 different inmates, as well as contracting HIV, over the course of his prison sentence. The Arkansas Correction Department spokesperson rejected the notion of Spruce’s torture by alluding to the thought that he initiated the sexual activity(www.nytimes.com). These cases are just some of the many stories pertaining to prisons across the United States. Seeing as we have the largest prison population, it’s no surprise to see that sexual assault is the highest in the world when it comes to incarceration. The world is filled with the good and bad of human society. Many of us would like to call it primitive cognition, especially when it involves acts of uncivilized philosophy. This tactic has been used to gain power over another, not caring who, or what, gets hurt in the process. Whether you are male or female, sexual assault is a possibility. The thought that only women can be raped is unrealistic at best. However, only those who know sexual assault to be deliberate and wrong will listen to the messages brought about the topic, while those who lurk in the shadows are unphased by the very notion that what they are doing is wrong. This is not a subject that could’ve been treated lightly due to the goal being to treat male sexual assault victims with the respect given to female sexual assault victims. With the evidence brought forward today, those who’ve read this collection of articles, studies, and information can make up their mind in a way that is appropriate to the individual. Sexual assault in males is, without a doubt, still not at the level of female sexual assault, is laughed about on TV, ignored when the perpetrator is female, and recklessly humored when it comes to the prison system.

TRUMP’S WASHINGTON: Biz is done in secret -- IVANKA to the Hill for paid leave talks -- GA election: what insiders think -- THE JUICE: Bezos and Carney at Le Diplomate, new gigs for Jack Quinn and Michael LaRosa
by [email protected] (Daniel Lippman) via POLITICO - TOP Stories
URL: http://ift.tt/2tIAH97
Good Tuesday morning.
FIRST IN PLAYBOOK: There has been a lot of chatter about the White House searching for talent these days. AN EXAMPLE of who the White House is trying to recruit: the Trump administration recently approached SCOTT JENNINGS to gauge his interest in a senior role, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions. Jennings is a confidant to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, was a special assistant to President George W. Bush and now is a principal at RunSwitch PR in Louisville, Kentucky. He’s a frequent Trump defender on cable TV. The White House offered him a job but he turned it down last week. THIS IS A SERIOUS EFFORT to bring in high-level operatives with applicable experience -- something the White House has shied away from, traditionally. Jennings declined to comment. The White House didn’t respond to a request for comment.
INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE -- “Spicer searching for candidates to take over White House briefing,” by Tara Palmeri: “White House press secretary Sean Spicer is leading a search for his own replacement at the briefing room podium as part of a larger plan to shake up the White House communications operations, according to two people with knowledge of the effort. Last week, Spicer and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus reached out to Fox News personality Laura Ingraham about the role of press secretary and Daily Mail editor David Martosko about the role of communications director, according to a White House official. Spicer and Priebus have had preliminary discussions with Ingraham and interviewed Martosko.” http://politi.co/2tGoT6X
-- IF THE WHITE HOUSE is phasing out the daily on-camera press briefing -- as it appears to be -- Spicer’s job switch seems quite natural. ONE BAD SIGN: The White House does not have an on-camera or off-camera press briefing today. This could be bad for the White House, as it will be far more difficult for them to drive a message and respond to questions, and it's bad for democracy, because the public has grown accustomed to reporters quizzing the administration in a public setting. In short, it is a problem for everyone. The White House even forbade journalists from broadcasting audio from yesterday's off-camera session.
-- BY THE WAY… The White House has been whispering about staff shake ups for months. We’ll believe it when we see it.
WHERE THINGS STAND IN GEORGIA -- “Georgia special election comes to a messy end,” by Gabe Debenedetti in Marietta, Georgia: http://politi.co/2rLwmVR
GEORGIA 6TH BRAIN DUMP -- WHAT THE INSIDERS ARE SAYING ON ELECTION DAY …
-- FROM A DEMOCRAT INVOLVED IN THE RACE: “This race is truly too close to call -- best guess is that Ossoff gets between 48-51 percent. He’s consistently led in the polling and we have an advantage in the early vote, but GOP turnout (or lack thereof) will drive the day. On that note, it’s clear that the Republicans have learned from their near-loss in the primary and are actually running a field program, and the extent to which last week’s shooting of Rep. [Steve] Scalise will bring Republicans home is also unknown.
“We are playing to win, but it’s important to keep in mind that the difference between a 51 percent win for Ossoff and 49 percent loss is that Georgia gets another Democratic Congressman. Nationally, either result is a huge problem for House Republicans in 2018, given where GA-06 sits on the GOP-held map in terms of competitiveness.”
-- FROM A REPUBLICAN INVOLVED IN THE RACE: “Stock up on coffee. Poised to be a very late night. It’s a pure tossup. But we’re cautiously confident. Both parties have gone all-in here. Any press releases declaring a “moral victory” will be laughed at.
“Around 7:45, the first early vote from DeKalb will come in. That’s the Dem county. Will look bad. People read too much into that. Between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., once we start getting enough of the Election Day vote in, should be a clearer picture. We need a strong Election Day showing out of Cobb County (stronghold for us). Watch Fulton County. Ossoff needs to at least tie Fulton to have a shot.”
-- FROM THE [email protected] at 5:49 a.m.: “Democrat Jon Ossoff, who wants to raise your taxes to the highest level and is weak on crime and security, doesn’t even live in district.” … at 6:02 a.m.: “KAREN HANDEL FOR CONGRESS. She will fight for lower taxes, great healthcare strong security-a hard worker who will never give up! VOTE TODAY”.
-- IT'S WORTH NOTING: Ossoff would hardly be the first person to represent a district they don't live in. There are plenty of members of both parties who, for one reason or another, do not live in the district they represent.
THE BIG PICTURE -- WAPO A18 -- “In Trump’s Washington, public business increasingly handled behind closed doors,” by Phil Rucker and Ed O’Keefe: “The Senate bill to scale back the health-care law known as Obamacare is being written in secret by a single senator, Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and a clutch of his senior aides. Officials at numerous agencies of the Trump administration have stonewalled friendly Republicans in Congress — not to mention Democrats — by declining to share internal documents on sensitive matters or refusing to answer questions.
“President Trump, meanwhile, is still forbidding the release of his tax returns, his aides have stopped releasing logs of visitors to the White House and his media aides have started banning cameras at otherwise routine news briefings, as happened Monday. Trump even refuses to acknowledge to the public that he plays golf during his frequent weekend visits to his private golf courses. More and more in the Trump era, business in Washington is happening behind closed doors. The federal government’s leaders are hiding from public scrutiny — and their penchant for secrecy represents a stark departure from the campaign promises of Trump and his fellow Republicans to usher in newfound transparency.” http://wapo.st/2sKvWP2
IVANKA TO THE HILL TO MEET RUBIO, FISCHER ON PAID LEAVE – via Ian Kullgren and Seung Min Kim in Morning Shift: “Ivanka Trump is scheduled to meet today [on Capitol Hill] with Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) and other members to discuss paid leave and family issues, according to two sources with knowledge of the plans. The meeting comes as the Trump administration pushes its paid leave proposal, which would provide six weeks of leave for mothers and fathers. The White House hasn’t found a sponsor yet, though today’s meeting would indicate that Rubio and Fischer are two top choices.
“Fischer, for her part, has embraced the idea of paid family leave, but has stopped short of endorsing the White House’s vision. She’s pushing an incentive plan that would give a two-year tax break to companies that offer at least two weeks of paid leave, an idea she’s put forth in previous years. Rubio has embraced that approach, too, saying during his presidential campaign that he would give companies a 25 percent tax credit for offering four to 12 weeks of paid leave.”
AND THERE’S MORE -- “At height of Russia tensions, Trump campaign chairman Manafort met with business associate from Ukraine,” by WaPo’s Roz Helderman, Tom Hamburger and Rachel Weiner: “In August, as tension mounted over Russia’s role in the U.S. presidential race, Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, sat down to dinner with a business associate from Ukraine who once served in the Russian army. Konstantin Kilimnik, who learned English at a military school that some experts consider a training ground for Russian spies, had helped run the Ukraine office for Manafort’s international political consulting practice for 10 years. At the Grand Havana Room, one of New York City’s most exclusive cigar bars, the longtime acquaintances ‘talked about bills unpaid by our clients, about [the] overall situation in Ukraine ... and about the current news,’ including the presidential campaign, according to a statement provided by Kilimnik, offering his most detailed account of his interactions with the former Trump adviser.” http://wapo.st/2sQdtkl
FOR TRUMP’S WIN COLUMN -- “Gallup: Public trust in government’s counter-terror efforts rebounds,” by Jake Lahut: “Seventy percent of Americans feel assured of the government’s ability to protect against terrorism, a Gallup poll released on Monday found, reflecting a boost [up from 55 percent] in public confidence since the last time the question was asked after the December 2015 attack in San Bernardino, California.” http://politi.co/2rxgvGr
MUELLER’S MUSCLE – “Mueller team lawyer brings witness-flipping expertise to Trump probes,” by Reuters’ Karen Freifeld: “A veteran federal prosecutor recruited onto special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is known for a skill that may come in handy in the investigation of potential ties between Russia and U.S. President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign team: persuading witnesses to turn on friends, colleagues and superiors.
“Andrew Weissmann, who headed the U.S. Justice Department’s criminal fraud section before joining Mueller’s team last month, is best known for two assignments - the investigation of now-defunct energy company Enron and organized crime cases in Brooklyn, New York - that depended heavily on gaining witness cooperation.” http://reut.rs/2tlSFPp
FOR THE PRESIDENT -- “A Top Presidential Public Defender Was Also a Twitter Critic,” by NYT’s Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Maggie Haberman: “In April, Mark Corallo, the spokesman for President Trump’s personal legal team, used Twitter to suggest – twice -- that Vice President Mike Pence, not Mr. Trump, should be the Republican nominee for president in 2020. In May, he posted several remarks disparaging the influence of Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, and Jared Kushner, his son-in-law, in the White House, suggesting they were part of ‘the swamp’ the president had promised to drain. ... ‘Hey Mr. President, where’s all the “winning?”’ Mr. Corallo wrote last month, appearing to compare Mr. Trump to Bill Clinton, who hailed from Arkansas, and his famous parsing of words. ‘Or, like the guy from AR, are you going to tell me it depends on the definition of “winning?” ” http://nyti.ms/2sk2YoB ... Corallo’s Twitterhttp://bit.ly/2rQo62d
WHAT MITCH MCCONNELL IS UP TO -- “Sources: Senate GOP prepares for Obamacare repeal vote next week,” by Burgess Everett and Jen Haberkorn: “Senate Republicans are preparing to vote on Obamacare repeal next week, according to multiple sources familiar with the negotiations, potentially leaving rank-and-file lawmakers with no more than a week to review legislation that would affect millions of Americans and one-sixth of the U.S. economy. Senators are expected to see the text of the bill as soon as the end of this week, those sources said, provided this week’s work goes smoothly. The timeline could change based on the response from individual senators toward the proposal at party meetings, but Republicans are increasingly optimistic they can hold a vote next week if this week’s lunch talks go well.” http://politi.co/2rxd1n6
MIXED MESSAGES -- “Some Dems reluctant to shut down Senate committees over Obamacare,” by Elana Schor and Seung Min Kim: “Even as Senate Democrats began a Monday night talk-a-thon designed to spotlight the GOP’s still-secret Obamacare repeal plan, some of their own questioned the party’s other potential procedural tactic to block committees from meeting this week. The skepticism within the caucus underscores the risk facing Senate Democrats as they launch an all-out battle against a Republican health care bill they have had zero power to influence.
“Democrats want to use every procedural tool at their disposal to slow the GOP's progress, but one of their more arcane options - the power to block committee meetings two hours after the Senate goes into session - risks inviting Republicans to paint them as heedlessly obstructionist. … Two high-profile Tuesday hearings could get sandbagged by a Democratic blockade using the so-called ‘two-hour rule,’ if it is invoked: the Foreign Relations Committee's discussion of presidential authorizations for the use of military force and a Judiciary Committee look at past congressional and criminal investigations. If the tactic is used Wednesday, it could prematurely cut off an Intelligence Committee hearing on Russian meddling in the 2016 election.” http://politi.co/2sQzZcR
WHAT PAUL RYAN WILL SAY TODAY ON TAX REFORM -- Speaker Paul Ryan is giving what his office is billing as a major address on tax reform today at the National Association of Manufacturers conference. He isn’t going to discuss the vast and crucial disagreements between the House, Senate and White House but will aim to “describe the important components of any reform – both for individuals and businesses, big and small.”
ONE BIG THING: He’s going to lean into permanent tax reform instead of temporary measures, and will argue against “half measures” -- both signals that he wants to avoid a simple tax cut, which many see as an easy way to avoid tough decisions and political pain when cleaning out the cluttered tax code.
-- EXCERPTS: “We are actually unique in the world in the way we discourage capital from coming back to America and how we incentivize off-shoring jobs. This is not the kind of exceptionalism we should aspire to … We must think differently, so that once again we make things here and export them around the world.”
“We are going to get this done in 2017. We need to get this done in 2017. We cannot let this once-in-a-generation moment slip ... Transformational tax reform can be done, and we are moving forward. Full speed ahead.”
SCALISE WATCH -- “McHenry steps up as Scalise recovers,” by Rachael Bade and John Bresnahan: http://politi.co/2sRzmzX

WHAT JERUSALEM AND RAMALLAH NEED TO KNOW -- “Jared Kushner Is About to Plunge Into Middle East Diplomacy,” by NYT’s Mark Landler and Maggie Haberman: The trip “also demonstrates Mr. Kushner’s determination not to let investigations into the Trump campaign’s alleged ties with Russia, or his own business dealings, distract him from his day-to-day work. ... Several officials said this could be the first trip in which Mr. Kushner and Mr. Greenblatt delved into the nitty-gritty of a possible peace agreement — borders, security and other questions that have bedeviled American peacemakers for decades — by asking both sides to list their priorities for negotiations.” http://nyti.ms/2rLlPKs

THE JUICE …
-- SPOTTED AT LE DIPLOMATE last night: Jeff Bezos and Jay Carney.
-- NATALIE JONES HALLAHAN has started as SVP of external affairs at Meridian International Center. Jones was acting chief of protocol at State in the Obama administration.
-- JACK QUINN has joined the D.C. office of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips as a partner in the litigation group and chair of the firm’s federal regulatory and government practice. At Manatt, he will work with clients involved in “complex regulatory proceedings, government investigations and public policy campaigns.” Quinn previously chaired QGA Public Affairs.
-- MICHAEL LAROSA starts on July 10 as comms director for Democrats on the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources under ranking member Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.). He has spent the last six plus years as a producer for MSNBC’s “Hardball” with Chris Matthews. He is emailing friends this morning: “I am eternally grateful to Chris for taking a chance on me six years ago; his mentorship and friendship have been invaluable. I’ve had a front row seat to history during two Presidential Election cycles.”

DEEP DIVE -- “7 Sailors Emerged From Diverse Backgrounds to Pursue a Common Cause,” by NYT’s Dave Phillips: “The seven sailors who died when the destroyer Fitzgerald collided with a container ship last weekend were a snapshot of the nation they served: an immigrant from the Philippines whose father served in the Navy before him; a poor teenager whose Guatemalan family came north eager for opportunity; a native of Vietnam hoping to help his family; a firefighter’s son from a rural crossroads in the rolling green fields of Virginia. The roll call of the dead also illustrated the degree to which the military relies on recruits from immigrant communities around the country.” http://nyti.ms/2sRq1YP
2018 WATCH -- “Sources: Heller gets Democratic opponent for 2018 race,” by Seung Min Kim and Burgess Everett: “Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) plans to run against Republican Sen. Dean Heller for his Senate seat in Nevada, according to multiple people familiar with her plans. Heller is widely considered the most vulnerable Republican up for re-election in 2018 and is the only GOP senator this cycle who represents a state won by Hillary Clinton in 2016. … The recruitment of Rosen has the strong imprint of former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, who was entrusted by the party establishment to identify the strongest candidate to challenge Heller. Reid settled on Rosen, figuring that she’s a fresh face with little political baggage and would be the most formidable opponent, according to a person familiar with the matter.” http://politi.co/2sNTZxo
SNEAK PEEK – JASON ZENGERLE in the N.Y. Times Magazine, “Is North Carolina the Future of American Politics? The state is narrowly split between Democratic and Republican Parties that agree on virtually nothing. Are its scorched-earth politics what the rest of us have to look forward to?”: “Welcome to North Carolina circa 2017, where all the passions and pathologies of American politics writ large are played out writ small -- and with even more intensity. Ever since 2010, when Republicans seized control of the General Assembly for the first time in a century, and especially since 2012, when they took the governor’s mansion, the state’s politics have been haywire. ‘There’s been a bigger and quicker shift to the right here than in any other state in the country,’ says Rob Christensen, a longtime political writer for The News and Observer ...
“In just a few years, North Carolina Republicans have not just run quickly through the conservative policy checklist; they’ve tried to permanently skew the balance of power in the state in their favor, passing some of the most restrictive voting laws in the country and drawing some of the most egregiously gerrymandered congressional and state legislative districts in modern American politics (though their moves have repeatedly failed to pass muster with the courts). Cooper’s victory, and the blowback to H.B. 2 that preceded it, seemed to suggest a chastening of the party — until Republicans contested the election results with a series of baseless allegations of voter fraud and legal challenges that left the state in limbo for four weeks before [Pat] McCrory finally conceded.” http://nyti.ms/2sQAfc1
NEW WIRED COVER STORY – “How to Switch a Country Off. The New Weapons are Digital -- and They’re Pointed at Us,” by Andy Greenberg in the July issue (online headline: “How an Entire Nation Became Russia’s Test Lab for Cyberwar”): Viktor “Yushchenko, who ended up serving as Ukraine’s president from 2005 to 2010, believes that Russia’s tactics, online and off, have one single aim: ‘to destabilize the situation in Ukraine, to make its government look incompetent and vulnerable.’ He lumps the blackouts and other cyberattacks together with the Russian disinformation flooding Ukraine’s media, the terroristic campaigns in the east of the country, and his own poisoning years ago—all underhanded moves aimed at painting Ukraine as a broken nation. ‘Russia will never accept Ukraine being a sovereign and independent country,’ says Yushchenko, whose face still bears traces of the scars caused by dioxin toxicity. ‘Twenty--five years since the Soviet collapse, Russia is still sick with this imperialistic syndrome.’” http://bit.ly/2ry3bkX … The coverhttp://bit.ly/2svS3GS
THE LATEST ON THE TRAVEL BAN -- “Judge narrows injunction on Trump travel ban,” by Josh Gerstein: “A federal judge in Hawaii has reined in in an injunction he issued three months ago blocking key parts of President Donald Trump's revised travel ban executive order. U.S. District Court Judge Derrick Watson scaled back the injunction Monday, nullifying its impact on studies and policy reviews ordered under the directive Trump issued in March and billed as an anti-terrorism initiative.” http://politi.co/2rLcz97
JUST POSTED -- “The Man At The Center Of This Trump Scandal Wants To Clear His Name,” by BuzzFeed’s Borzou Daragahi: “[Kamil Ekim] Alptekin said the work Flynn did for him — for which he was paid $530,000, and included research into Erdoğan’s nemesis, the U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gülen — had nothing to do with the Turkish government, and challenged anyone to prove it did. … But Alptekin’s story has raised eyebrows in Washington, where many have been left wondering where he got the money to pay Flynn — and why a relatively obscure businessman in Turkey had hired the former general to dig up dirt on one of Erdoğan’s enemies. ... Alptekin prizes the work done by Flynn’s researchers. ‘This is the only real intense investigative work done on the Gülenists,’ he said. ‘Is it worth the money I paid? You bet your ass.’” http://bzfd.it/2rQ7R5m
FOR YOUR RADAR -- “Rich Venezuelans eat sushi, guzzle cocktails amid chaos,” by AFP’s Carlos Reyes in Caracas: “While most Venezuelans struggle to buy food and make ends meet, a small group still manages to eat sushi and sip cocktails in exclusive discos and country clubs. The country may be stricken by poverty and political violence, but a rich minority acts like they are untouched by the crisis. Case in point: Caracas, one of the world’s most violent cities, is the first in South America to open a branch of the trendy Buddha Bar international nightclub chain. In a country where basics such as flour and sugar are in short supply, Buddha Bar guests can order tuna steak, pork ribs or fish tacos -- as long as they have dollars to pay.” https://yhoo.it/2rxfWwj
OFF MESSAGE WITH ISAAC DOVERE: TRUMP STUMBLING INTO WAR -- Ben Cardin, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, tells Isaac Dovere in the latest “Off Message” podcast that Trump’s impulsiveness leaves him wondering “whether he will do the right things under pressure,” and that this could lead to things quickly spiraling out of control in Syria, North Korea, the South China Sea and Ukraine. “There’s many areas where there could be a miscalculation that could lead to a shooting war. In every one of those circumstances, the Trump administration has not given us a strategy,” Cardin said. Listen and subscribehttp://apple.co/2e2dLvm

[F]amous residents ... include Inez Buck Robinson, who was a Broadway actress in the 1940s, and a really interesting diplomatic couple, John Cooper Wiley and Irena Baruch Wiley. He was the U.S. charges d’Affaires in Vienna when the Nazis took over; the Wileys helped many Austrian Jews escape, among them Sigmund Freud. He went on to hold other ambassadorships. They were close to FDR; when the Polish-born Irena became a U.S. citizen, FDR swore her in.” SPOTTED: historian Robert Dallek, Tommy Burr, Clark Hoyt, Bob Hillman, Robin Sproul, Chris Rowland and Nancy Cook.
ENGAGED -- Rodd McLeod, co-founder of Radar Strategies and former Giffords campaign manager, got engaged on Friday to Rebekah Sanders, political reporter at The Arizona Republic, at a mountaintop restaurant overlooking Phoenix. “As Rebekah’s favorite all-female mariachi band played, Rodd dusted off his newspaper-delivery-boy skills and presented her with a custom ‘special edition’ Arizona Republic with the A1 headline ‘Will she? Won’t she?’ and a column by their dog, The Magnificent Gingersnout. The couple met in 2012 when she covered campaigns he managed for Reps. Barber and Sinema. After years of arguing with each other about politics professionally, they started dating after their career paths diverged and have decided to debate politics for decades more.” Pichttp://politi.co/2rxbkGs

I thought this could be useful. I went ahead and made an index of what I believe to be all of Tucker's debates on his show so far. This isn't all of the interviews and doesn't include things like "Friend Zone", just the debates/tuckings. Fox already had all the clips uploaded, but it's extremely hard to navigate their YT channel and find anything specific. With this, it should be relatively easy to find what you're looking for and hopefully there's something in here you haven't seen yet. Enjoy!
