Woke violence

Just saw a tweet stating that the existence of the gender binary is violent. I agree that the gender binary is a classification humans made up, so if one wants to amend, edit, or transcend it they should go for it.

But how is it violent? Can someone point me to the woke understanding/definition of violence? I can't seem to figure it out on my own.

Edit: thanks for all the responses. I agree with y'all that woke violence is simply a synonym for victomhood/coercion. Does anyone know if there is an academic backbone for this school of thought? Any writers/writings that it has stemmed from?

Number construction clarification proposal

Current state:

I have heard multiple different interpretations of how numbers currently combine together.

Proposed state:

Every numeral preceding a numeral with a larger magnitude gets combined. (For example "wafun fun" is always “1001”, never “1000, 1” which would be "wafun vin fun").

Reason:

Currently phrases like "wil wafun fun" have have multiple meanings; while synonyms aren't in them selves a problem , math is likely going to be a backbone structure of this language, so it is important that we are able to clearly talk about numbers.

Note:

This proposal does not change how things like phone numbers can be "spelled out" with mononumerals, just like how "A P P L E" is not a gramatically correct way to say "apple" in english.

The Biggest Fake News In America Is That The Christian Church Is Christian.

The cause of Fascism and most bigotries in the world, as well as racism in America is the Christian Church.

In 1865 the Republican Party was created through the merger of several abolitionist groups. From 1865 to the mid 1960s, the Republican Party led the Civil Rights movement in America, for a 100-years, until the church move from the Left/Democrats to the Right/GOP to take political control of the American Right.

From our Founding to this this period in history the church has worked against America, our Constitution, and equality. First half-century through the Democrats and their racism, bigotry in our society before the mid 1950s & mid 60s, and through the GOP after the Church changed political camps to this day, another half-century later.

Guide to NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 14 in Tokyo Dome

With NJPW’s final shows for the year wrapped up and the holiday season well and truly upon us, a new decade and another Wrestle Kingdom is right around the corner. For the 4th year in a row I’m compiling an all you need to know guide in order to enjoy the biggest night(s) of the year in Japan’s wrestling calendar.

While the Wrestle Kingdom name is being used for the 14th time, NJPW’s tradition of running a big show at the Tokyo Dome in the heart of Japan’s capital goes all the way back to the “Super Warriors in Tokyo Dome” show in 1992. This coming year sees an important change to the formula as Wrestle Kingdom 14 will be composed of not 1 but 2 straight nights as it extends into January 5th as well.

Note: I’ve cut some wrestlers and the pre show matches because the first draft was actually too big for reddit but this will still get you more than up to speed for Wrestle Kingdom.


#Titles:

  • IWGP Heavyweight Championship - The top prize in all of NJPW, my favourite stat to wheel out every time I do a guide like this is the scarcity of unique winners of this title in the modern era of the company, with just 6 men holding the title since the end of the 2011 Tokyo Dome show. The belt is currently held by NJPW’s top star of the past decade, Kazuchika Okada and will be defended both nights as a part of the double gold dash.

  • IWGP Intercontinental Championship - The 1b title to the Heavyweight championship, the Intercontinental title rapidly grew in prestige after its invention in 2011 due to multiple great reigns by Shinsuke Nakamura, at its peak even headlining the 2014 edition of Wrestle Kingdom. In recent times the belt has become synonymous with Tetsuya Naito who challenges current champion Jay White on night 1. This belt makes up the second half of the double gold dash.

  • IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship - The Junior Heavyweight title is NJPW’s equivalent of a cruiserweight belt, exclusively competed for by those under 100kg(220lb) and it is a hotbed for incredibly fast paced action, exemplified by current champion Will Ospreay. The belt has been on the rise as the Juniors have sought bigger and bigger spot on the card.

  • NEVER Openweight Championship - Created in 2012, the NEVER title was designed to be a title for NJPW rookies to fight over in the, now defunct, developmental style brand, NEVER. However, the belt has risen to become a key staple of NJPW’s midcard and often is the prize for some of NJPW’s hardest hitting matches. The

What if Kenny Omega Remained With NJPW? (Part Four: Cleaning the Competition)

Devastated. Perplexed. Coming away from the G1 Climax, Omega was feeling every emotion possible. For a third year in a row, Kenny Omega came so close to winning the G1 Climax, achieving success mirroring his first appearance in the annual tournament, but thanks to an upset result from the Aerial Assassin, Will Ospreay, Omega was unable to win the block, leading to Jay White winning the block only to lose to Omega’s partner, Kota Ibushi. What was next for the Best Bout Machine?

On the final show of the Super-J cup before New Japan travelled to London, England, to host Royal Quest, Will Ospreay stands in the ring after his victory against El Phantasmo, as he grabs a mic, the audience curious as to what he has to say. “I think it’s pretty safe to say that I had a successful G1 Climax campaign.” The audience applauds. “And it’s even more fair to say that it ended on a high with a victory against the ‘Best Bout Machine’ Kenny Omega. Speaking of, I saw on his social media this week, his frustration about not having an opponent for Royal Quest.” Ospreay grins as the crowd catch on, “Mr. Kenny Omega, how about we light up Copper Box Arena, my home country, and let’s up the ante… 2/3 Falls Match.” Ospreay drops the mic, grabbing his belt and sliding out of the ring. Shortly later, the match is officially announced, and the stage is set for a fantastic affair.

Will Ospreay, the hometown hero, going up against Kenny Omega in a 2/3 Falls Match. Ospreay may have Omega’s number, but Omega will be out for revenge, so both men are for definite going to go all out on each other. Can Omega get back on the right tracks after his G1 campaign was derailed? Or is Will Ospreay going to prove himself as a true heavyweight and get a monumental win in his home country?

What if Kenny Omega Remained With NJPW? (Part Four: Cleaning the Competition)

Royal Quest – August 31th 2019

New Japan Pro Wrestling is the talk of the town, as they host Royal Quest here at Copperbox Arena in London, England. With a great card in store, with bouts such as Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Zack Sabre Jr, Tomohiro Ishii vs Kenta and our main event for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, Minoru Suzuki vs Kazuchika Okada, the match with most talk around it is the no time limit, 2/3 Falls Match between Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay. Ospreay caused one of the biggest upsets of the tournament against Kenny Omega on the final day of the B Block, and ever since, Ospreay has been carrying a heavy load of mo

[OC] Football's Famous Signature Moves

Inspired by a post from u/valoriane a month or so ago, about player ‘trademark goals’, it got me thinking about the other actions that players do on the pitch that makes them so unique, memorable and appealing to us as fans.

There are many facets to any players game, but there are things that have become synonymous with specific characters of the sport, where signature moves or a play-style that will live long in the memory.

On that note, I’ve compiled a list of players who have their own unique traits and what they’ve brought to the game that we love so much. They may have done it once, or in almost every game, but they are synonymous with it and for better or worse, they’ll be remembered for it.

As I was researching the list, it was amazing to see so many that I’ve never heard of and even surprised that many of these actually have their own names. So here’s hoping it’s an education for more than just me.

Also, some are here for comedy value, so don’t get offended if you can’t handle the magic of Phil Neville’s stepovers.

I’m sure there’s many, many others I’ve missed, so please feel free to add anything you feel worth sharing below. Also, apologies if some of the videos aren’t the best quality, they were the best I could find.

*Apologies for the repost - i had some issues with some of the links previously

Goalkeepers

René Higuita - There’s a lot about ol’ Rene that sticks in the mind, the hair, that facelift, but more famously the Scorpion Kick https://youtu.be/yCxe4r6SjH0 (Random fact; I was actually at that game and I swear to this day the whistle had already been blown and Redknapp just hoofed the ball towards goal)

Peter Schmeichel - The ‘Great Dane’ was one of the catalysts for the beginning of Utd’s dominance in the 90’s. Known for being commanding and also having a unique ‘star jump’ approach to attackers bearing down on his goal. Also nice to see Kasper using that for Leicester on the regular. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pplROgaUbEw

This year I realized so many ways my Nmom manipulated me into being simply an extension of herself. Controlling what I wore, the color of my hair, how I talked to boys, how I did her laundry. So much manipulation. Here’s a poem. What’s a good title for this poem?

Self power, an attuned inner voice, confidence, opinions & feelings

Basically words synonymous with ‘sinful’ if you grew up like me

A mindless droid A spineless servant A feelingless, nothingness of a self

Is this the way you like me?

It’s much easier to assert control when I comply, isn’t it?

It’s simpler to manipulate when I’m an enmeshed liquidy soul of a person, wouldn’t you agree?

I’m much nicer to be around when I can stroke your ego, right?

I’m easier to interact with if I do as you say and not as you do, isn’t that so?

How come you get to be you, but I also have to be for you too?

How do you like me in the color yellow?

What about in sweat pants?

How about when I curse on the internet?

What do you think about my naturally dark hair?

I already know the answers, so don’t waste your breath.

You like me better when...

Wait.

You liked me better as an extension of yourself.

You liked me better when I was small and learning how to survive in an environment I was never supposed to outgrow.

You liked me better when surviving meant me trying to keep you happy.

Wait. Maybe happy is too strong a word.

You liked me better when my survival relied on trying to keep you from being angry.

You liked me better when I anticipated your every mood, need, and desire.

You liked me better when I was your compliant little life raft. Offering you a vicarious attempt at surviving yourself.

You liked me better when I had no sense of myself. When my backbone didn’t exist.

You liked me better when I carried the burden of helping you feel better about being a shit mother.

I became less so you could become more.

I think that actually sounds like a scripture you shouted at me before.

The intoxicating intertwinement of identity, you and god.

I was disrespectful when I spoke up about literally anything.

I was ungrateful when I no longer wanted to dye my hair blonde.

I was inconsiderate for leaving you to go to college. I was supposed to always take care of you.

I was haughty and prideful when I disregarded your quote unquote advice.

I was arrogant when I wanted to learn how to do anything on my own and in my own way.

So much of myself was stripped down. Made docile. Diluted. Unimportant. Uninteresting.

Fuck you for making me hate myself. Fuck you for self inflicted self doubt. Fuck you for not parenting me as the child. Fuck you for relying on my empathy to ease your own pain you were too unwilling to confront yourse

Ruruka Ando

The word of the day is “aahgshgsdhagdhsgd.” Now, I’m plenty aware that you all might not be completely informed as to the curative power and cultural relevance the word “aahgshgsdhagdhsgd” holds, and you might be wondering what, if anything, this has to do with Ruruka Ando, or the rankdown in general. Don’t be fooled! “Aahgshgsdhagdhsgd” is a word with significant importance in our society and the impact it has had on me and the climate as a whole cannot possibly be understated. In spite of what some pathetic, untrustworthy sources like the “Dictionary” and “common sense” may tell you, there is no grammatically correct word currently contained in our bastions of information that can properly communicate the complex emotion of being simultaneously so infuriated you want to rip every single individual hair out of your miserable scalp, while also being so apathetic that you don’t have the energy to pull out just one. “Aahgshgsdhagdhsgd” is a word that can easily transmit this piece of knowledge, as the mental image that comes to your mind when you see it is that of someone smashing their head against a keyboard out of a vitriolic, poisonous cocktail of rage and tired soullessness.

This is not to insinuate that I find the prospect of talking about Ruruka unappealing - in fact, it’s the opposite. I like Ruruka, and this is the placement I believe she deserves, so ergo, letting my fingers go crazy go stupid on the keyboard about this pretty in pink candy bitch is liable to be something I look forwards to doing! But indeed, I can’t possibly abandon the opportunity to throw a massive tantrum at the start of every single cut, with only the flimsiest of reasonings serving as its backbone, so here it is: I’m glad I don’t have to cut Gonta, really, I am. The thought of talking about him is for more stifling of any creativity I might possess than any possible Ruruka cut. But with his cut I am now painfully aware of the fact that I like almost everyone left, and the ones I don’t are so catastrophically unlikely to be nerfed now or ever that the rest of the round looms in front of me rather unattractively. Ruruka Ando is just the beginning of this plague, and I’m choosing to kill her because she’s genuinely the worst character left in the game that I can cut, but given how much I do like her it evokes a sour feeling of dismay in my liver. That being said, there is an upside to all of this. Much like last rankdown, Ruruka’s cut has been delivered to her from the hands of

The Golden Hands of Ashfeld - A Knight Codex Entry

https://imgur.com/WVvyUn5

“SALVATOR IN TEMPORE BELLO. REGIBUS IN TEMPORE PACIS”

Times are dire for Ashfeld.

Its Legions still suffer from the wounds inflicted by Apollyon’s madness, all the while Viking Raiders roam and plunder with impunity. Heroes and warbands rise and fall in a matter of months, if not weeks, overwhelmed by an unceasing siege of death. Its borders shift and bend like sea tides in a storm. Now rumors of four nigh-invincible warriors from a far, forgotten land spread like wildfire in the chaff. Dark cloaked figures stalk battlefields, whispers of death rise from the great Myre, and up in the North barbaric zealots wage war in the name of their monstrous God. Indeed, to the common folk of Ashfeld the signs are clear; and even though in this ever-shifting reality nothing can be taken for assured, one thing seems certain: the end is nigh. Against such odds, only the most brave - or ruthless - are able to stand against the chaos of conflict, willing to do what must be done in order to survive, no matter the reason, no matter the cost. It is a time of desperation and uncertainty, in which the line between heroism and cowardice grows thinner; there’s no oath that can hold and no man that can resist the bittersweet taste of power. Perhaps it was inevitable that the Golden Hands of Ashfeld would arise from such situation.

To describe what kind of organization the Golden Hands of Ashfeld (or Manus Auream, as its members call themselves) is is not a simple task, for its nature is still not clear. It could be described as a figure barely visible in the fog: impossible to accurately define, yet present nonetheless.Still, the Manus Auream (MA or GHoA for the sake of brevity) are, to say the least, quite a disruptive force for both Ashfeld and its enemies, as they share many similarities with some of the most fanatical monotheistic faiths (such as the Red Bleeding Cross) and with the narrowly materialistic views and projects of other paramilitary groups.Its members see themselves as righteous crusaders, fighting for the survival of their proud culture, but to most of outsiders they appear as xenophobic slaughterers led by men whose final objective still remains shrouded.Indeed, the GHoA’s leaders are perhaps the most puzzling side of the whole organization: disillusioned men-at-arms, zealots, disgraced nobles, all united under the ideas of an ex Lawbringer who nearly waged war against his former Order.To some, these so-called “saviors” are not

Slang Worldwide $SLNG $SLGWF - A Rundown

TLDR: This is a basic rundown of the model and mission of Slang Worldwide. In it I present their brands, distribution, management, partnerships, and where they are headed. I’ve written what I could with the information available to me and to the extent of my current knowledge. I’m a big fan of Slang and I believe they are set to be a very successful company in the long term. I have not invested in them yet, although I likely will be at some point and I'm just waiting to see their further developments, among other non-Slang related reasons. As always, I don’t claim this to be a flawless write up or be void of any incorrect information. Do your own DD and make sure you understand what you might be potentially investing in.

  • (6) Distribution & Partnerships
    • (A) Trulieve Relationship
    • (B) Canopy Relationship
    • (C) Origin House Relationship
  • (7) The Future Of Slang & Concluding Thoughts

(1) Forward Statement & Important Notes:

For those familiar with Origin House (formerly CannaRoyalty), Slang has a very similar focus to OH’s California distribution/branding operations, although with some differences between their operational models which should be obvious between these write ups. For those unfamiliar with my previous write up on Origin House I would recommend reading it as these two companies share a similar model, approach to the market and the logic behind their missions. Slang’s model is also built around being scalable and “capital light” which is a big difference from most of the current publicly listed US cannabis companies MSO (multi-state operator) capital intensive retail/cultivation focused model. I always try to keep my write up’s fairly unbiased and direct, but since this relates to the appeal and differentiator of Slang’s operational model and because my bias might seep through in this write up...I thought it was important to note that I’m not a big fan of MSO’s in terms of having the right model for long term success.

Startopia Racial Profiles: Groulien Salt-Hog

Groulien Salt-Hogs

The Working Class of Outer Space

Groulien Salt-Hog

"Salt Hogs are the great workers of the Galaxy. They have a natural affinity with machinery, construction, and maintenance. This is because their home planet was partially constructed out of old spaceship parts by an ancient race. Groul is constantly going wrong and needing repairs, so form an early age the Salt Hogs learn to be resourceful and mechanically adept."

Government: Groulien Workers Party

Home System: Groul System

Homeworld: Bohr

Groulien Salt-Hogs, or just "Salt Hogs" for short, are the manual laborers of the galaxy. Named for their grunting language and mineral-heavy diet, the Salt Hogs are a short, stocky race of bipeds with short but muscular limbs, thick, grey skin, large, watery black eyes, and tubular snouts like an anteater with a blunt beak at the end used to crush salt and mineral deposits to supplement their diets. They are a short and stout people, dressed in beige-colored body suits that also function as their work uniforms.

Hard-working and industrious, Groulien Salt Hogs are synonymous with toil, and in the areas of space they frequent, they often make up the bulk of the workforce in industry and recycling. They embody the industrial heart of the galaxy, working in gangs of up to four workers in recyclers and factories. They are one of the armed species, and the sheer size of their population makes them the necessary backbone of station operations and security. This also makes them - unfortunately so - entirely expendable. Luckily, their pleasant demeanor keeps you from feeling guilty for taking such advantage of them.

They get along with most people, except those who are a bit too snooty given their economic and/or social status. Their society is a commune, with all salt hogs considered equal in the fact that they are all underpaid, overworked, and unappreciated manual laborers. It is their lot in life, and they harbor no resentment for it.

Groulien Workers Party

The Groulien Workers Party (GWP) is the union and political party of the Salt Hog workers, the governmental head of the Groulien Salt Hog race as a whole and representing Groulien Salt Hog interests throughout the Galaxy. They set up waystations across the galaxy for their asteroid miners to visit in-between their mont

Many of you have been messaging and asking for the sources I used to show my wife regarding date of Jerusalem’s destruction. Mainly because they were instrumental in waking her up. Your patience has been appreciated. It’s taken me awhile to piece together my many notes and links into a cohesive and easily read format. I’m sure there are more sources out there, this all that I have found so far, so if any of you have information from a neutral source that you would like to contribute, please share it and I will add it to the list.

EDIT: Bear with me while I fix some of the formatting.


PREFACE

This list of information is intended to serve as a neutral resource you can use to expose the intellectual dishonesty being employed by Watchtower for decades regarding the date of Jerusalem’s destruction. This is no easy feat. Aside from the indoctrinated fear and mistrust of outside information, there’s over 100 years of literature already written in opposition to the point you are trying to make. You will really need to do your homework and understand the issue inside and out before bringing it up. Attacking this point means taking on the entirety of Watchtower’s chronology. It’s not just 607 BCE they are dishonest about. They also systematically change the dates of other important historical events that could be used to calculate to the correct date of Jerusalem's destruction in 587 BCE. Personally, I believe this works against them; it shows the extent of their dishonesty, and how far their efforts go to cover up and conceal historical facts from their followers. In many cases, these tertiary date changes are done without references, or fictional dates are blatantly superimposed into quotes with the use of brackets.


WHY NEUTRAL SOURCES?

Why not just point someone to jwfacts.com or Carl Olof Johnsons work? It’s true, they excellent resources and has been a point of reference for much of my research. The problem is that a ‘mentally in’ Witness will, in most cases, immediately reject any information that comes from a biased apostate source. If they google Carl Olof Johnson, the first result reveals he is an ex-Jehovah’s Witness. This engages their indoctrinated defenses and they will shut down. Even if you just repeat the information you’ve read there, at some point, you may be questioned about your sources. If the only thing yo

[Seeds of Agram] - The Great Dwarven Houses

High Council

Saluman - Soldiers / Merchants (Patriarch: Abdullah, born 3931)
lending the disciplines of keen dealing and even keener field sense, a Saluman king has been on the throne for the last 1000 years. As such, fully one-third of the Dwarven army is bankrolled by their house, with the other two-thirds split among the rest of the High Council.

Ghol - Bankers (Patriarch: Nasser, born 3895)
With the completion of the tunnel city hub Underway, House Ghol now controls revenues rivaling those of Havenspire itself. Their influence and power can hardly be overstated.

Ashir - Craftsman / Merchants (Patriarch: Ephem, born 3970)
With some early adoption of novel assembly line concepts, Ashir quickly established themselves as the only purveyor of truly affordable dwarven metalcraft, though the individual quality of each piece is sometimes questioned.

Udullah - Craftsman / Builders (Patriarch: Momhet, born 3998)
House Udullah takes as many contracts from outsiders as they do from fellow dwarves. This willingness to risk living and working far from the safety of their stone halls has proven lucrative, and provides political leverage in the outside world.

Atreri - Arcanists (Patriarch: Sorin, born 3882)
Although their most powerful secrets are kept within the family, Atreri tutors are often hired by the other families, whenever someone’s child demonstrates some aptitude in the arcane. They are respected and distrusted in nearly equal measure.

Mordu - Soldiers, Administrators (Patriarch: Temmer, born 3908)
The Mordu family distinguished themselves following the cataclysm, through their resolve, and effective crisis management. Their family’s level-headed doctrines have been invaluable ever since.

Outer Council

Afwan - Bankers / Merchants
Afwan sunk the majority of their capital in land, shortly after the Cataclysm. This, along with a healthy share of luck, kept them afloat through the ensuing upheaval. Since then, they have regained their financial feet, and are turning rapid profits as stability continues to spread.

Tzara - Merchants
Leveraging old relationships and even older contracts, Tzara is one of the only Dwarven Houses in regular communication with the Citadel Elves. They even host a regular diplomatic envoy from Fandir.

Beziri - Miners / Builders
House Beziri has gained much power through their efforts in Underway and the improved relations with House Ghol. With their prof

Cantíke settlements: a context

Briefing paper for Quorum discussion on the Law regarding new Settlement
The Ghielo Cantíke holds a large variety of settlements. The Ghielo have changed from a smattering of low density nomadic groups to permanent sites of increasing population density, isolation and urbanisation. As the Cantíke moves to the modern age, international interaction will be more common, and convention dictates a defined domain and crystallisation of "sovereignty". Through understanding the historic roots of our society we can understand more deeply the current situation and further examine the options for future growth.

This paper aims to inform Quorum members of the issues, before ensemble discussion, and has been prepared by the Physical Instructory (Gliss Voste), with reference to relevant texts.

The Ancestral Lands
The Cantíke expands across the Piacere Flats, which themselves are part of the Ghielo's greater Ancestral Lands^(1). The authority of the Cantíke is instilled in the Quorum, where an elected member from each Tierce and the ruling Maeon of each Gliss meet to discuss and make judgement. The legal basis for this authority is based on the Affirmation of Ghielo Interests (AGIs), and through Affirmation 7 (A7), the legal claim to the Flats is established. The AGIs were formed long before any understanding of the modern politic, and now there is worry the Ancestral Lands are at risk of falling into other hands. The Cantíke has no formal border but, through A7, exists as an expression of influence over the land, emanating from the permanent settlements. What was once meant as a balance of power between the permanent Tierce and the roaming Ferin has begun to have unexpected consequences in the way the Cantíke can develop and protect the lands of the First Song.

Item for discussion
There is a region outside the Cantíke's influence that the Ghielo sill consider part of their ancient territorial rites, with several significant sites of interest existing there. There have been recent calls to artificially spur new settlements on the edges of the Cantíkes influence as new frontiers to expand the reach of the Cantíke, but there is some debate as to whether this synthetic action constitutes a breach of the AGIs, in particular the Quorum's responsibilities stated in Affirmation 6.

Historical Context
The Ghielo, for all intents and purposes, have always lived in the arctic environment. The biggest key to survival has always been their ability

A Never-Mormon's Review of 1 Nephi

This is my first time reading the BoM, here's my thoughts on the first book, 1 Nephi:

AND IT CAME TO PASS

AND IT CAME TO PASS

AND IT CAME TO PASS

The amount of times I've seen this come up is completely unreasonable. Joseph Nephi treats this phrase as a synonym for "then", and I don't think it's meant to be used that liberally. One source tells me that "it came to pass" makes up over 20% of the entire BoM (1424 times in 6553 verses), and that would not surprise me.

Given Joseph Smith's history as a treasure seeker, I find the number of times gold, silver, and brass objects are mentioned in 1 Nephi to be very suspicious. From Laban's brass plates and his exceedingly fine sword with a hilt of pure gold, Lehi's gold and silver he uses to persuade Laban, the Liahona of brass, the golden plates Joseph Smith would find...Joseph LOVES his metals.

I also find it curious that Nephi excessively clarifies that "Hey, my father Lehi said many things, but I'm not gonna write them all down here." Conveniently this was written after Joseph Smith said God wouldn't let him retranslate the book of Lehi.

The dream Lehi has of eating from the tree of life was REALLY shocking to me. If I was still a Christian, I'd consider it downright Satanic for a book to say that God wanted his prophet and his family to eat from the tree of life, the very tree he prevented Adam and Eve from eating thereof. I assume this dream leads into the Mormon idea that when you die, you can become a god.

UPDATE: I knew in chapter 11 it said the tree was a representation of God's love (verse 25), but I thought the BoM would elaborate more on that later. Now that I know it doesn't, I think that's incredibly odd that the tree of life's very meaning would be dramatically altered from its Old Testament counterpart. It doesn't really make sense to me that it represents God's love. At best, it represents the immortality one gains through a faithful, God-obeying life.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Nothing is bad or Satanic about eating from the tree of life after all, because that's the reward of all the obedient Christians in the last chapter of Revelation. I haven't read Revelation before, so I always just thought the tree of life was forbidden forever.

I'm still a bit confused what the "Spirit of the Lord" in chapter 11 was...is that the Holy Ghost, the Light of Christ, God the Father, or some kind of angel? That phrase was confusing enough in the Old Testament, but something tells me Joseph Smith

What should SIs do when products do everything?*

A playbook for System Integrators to identify blue oceans and escape commodification

These are challenging times (circa 2019) for System Integrators. A factor contributing to this perfect storm is the omnipresence of products. An effect of the free flow of information is that companies across the world are exposed to best practices and are standardizing processes in a bid to wring out the last drop of efficiency in the supply chain.

The standardization of processes across competing companies in an industry has enabled software product companies to offer solutions and functionalities that address client needs more broadly out of the box. This has constrained the space for System Integrators in customization play and is darkening the red ocean of IT services.

An analogy in life sciences lingo will clarify what’s going on. Product companies, like big pharma, were used to producing effective but largely generic products, like the penicillin and paracetamol. System Integrators, then, akin to doctors, played a vital part in tailoring the specific cocktail of medicines and the dosage appropriate to the patient, or client in this context. Now, with the product companies, akin to big pharma, coming out with more and more specific drugs as well as pointed drug-delivery mechanisms, the doctor stares at the risk of the patient bypassing him or her altogether and going for OTC self-administered therapies. Of course, regulations prevent this happening in the life sciences space, with good reason. In the enterprise software space, the system integrator is not a mandatory player in the absence of a tangible value addition.

A clear area that SIs have a competitive advantage, is in taking market leading software products and offering it in SAAS mode. The advantages come from incumbency in the ecosystem comprising clients, product vendors, cloud providers and in having a bigger talent pool of niche skills in the areas of API-fication, containerization and micro-services architecture. The SI will have to invest in the product licensing, infrastructure in the form of private or public cloud as well as deployment of product implementation specialists. By entering and dominating this space early, SIs can lower the demand for product companies aspiring to transform themselves into SAAS players.

In the event of an SI embracing this approach, eight principles can form the guardrails to executing the strategy successfully:

Warsong Johanna – Character, Abilities, and Quotes Lore

Hello, all,

Today I'll be taking a look at one of the two new legendary skins introduced in the Echoes of Alterac event: Warsong Johanna! When the event was first leaked and later announced I didn't expect this skin to get a unique voice over, but it was a pleasant surprise as there are a bunch of fun references included in the skin's unique quotes.

I originally planned to cover Warsong Johanna and Sapper Junkrat in the same thread, but while the Sapper Junkrat post did end up being pretty short, it turned out to be a bit too optimistic to expect that I would be able to fit both of them in the same thread. Instead, I'll probably end up posting the Sapper Junkrat lore post as a separate thread this Sunday.

As usual, all previous lore threads can be found here.

######Might of the Warsong

The name "Warsong" will likely already be familiar to many Heroes players, as Garrosh himself is a member of the clan and the clan is referenced by Samuro's Warsong and Warsong Hellblade skin variants.

Living up to their name, the Warsong are one of the most legendary of all orcish clans. For centuries, they lived as ferocious nomads on the open prairies of Nagrand on the orc homeworld Draenor, never staying in a single location for long before moving on. Known for their archers and wolfriders, the clan's name derived from their terrifying drum marches and battle-hymns, which they used to overwhelm their enemies. These enemies mostly came in the form of the other main presence in Nagrand: the ogres of the ancient Gorian Empire and their great city of Highmaul. The Warsongs sporadically fought against the numerically superior Highmaul ogres for centuries until the chieftain Grommash "Grom" Hellscream, son of Golmash, arose and broke the ogres' grip on the region, leading his wolfriders to push the ogres back inside the walls of Highmaul with hit-and-run attacks.

When the Burning Legion manipulated the orc clans into forging a unified army — the Horde — and waging war on the peaceful draenei civilization, the Warsongs were one of the clans who served as the backbone of the Horde's fighting force, and when the warlock Gul'dan enticed the orc chieftains into drinking the blood of the demon Mannoroth, Grommash was the first to do so, thus damning his race to being enslaved by the Legion. The Horde succeeded in destroying draenei civilization, but in

Eyg'huol In'kmpleon, the Neglectful King

Once again, here's a new deity for your Pathfinder campaign! This time, however, we're finally crossing over to the Evil side of the spectrum, bringing you an insidious Demon Lord from the depths (?) of the Abyss.

Today I bring you: Eyg'huol In'kmpleon, Demon Lord of Abandonment!


Name: Eyg'huol In'kmpleon (pronounced AY-Goo-Ohl Een-COOM-Pleh-Ohn)

Titles: The Neglectful King, The One Who Cares Not

Position: Demon Lord of Abandonment, Dereliction and Indifference

Holy symbol: A broken bridge over a putrid green circle

Alignment: Chaotic Evil

Cleric alignments: Chaotic Evil, Neutral Evil

Portfolio: Abandonment of friends and family, dereliction of duty, apathy, vice

Domains: Evil, Chaos, Sloth, Charm

Favored weapon: Crossbow


Appearance:

Eyg'huol In'kmpleon has no set form, but unlike other chaotic deities that have shifting countenance, it is not because he's a mercurial deity or one associated with a dynamic force, he simply does not care. When he does bother with taking a particular form, he'll appear as a non-descript humanoid with no distinguishing features and bland clothing that doesn't call attention. Sometimes, he'll even just take the form of the person adressing him, not even bothering to make an effort to make a form on his own. When he speaks, it is in dull, emotionless monotone, and his voice sounds raspy and phlegmy. Any being who makes contact with him forgets what he looks or sounds like moments after concluding any communication with him. Many people theorize that he's not even truly male, just choosing to be referred to as male for the sake of simplicity. As can be expected, Eyg'huol can't be bothered to confirm or deny that rumor.

Some worshippers of the One Who Cares Not theorize that his indifference is actually a front, that he feigns dispassionateness and passivity but is in fact a highly intelligent chessmaster, using his power to seed disillusionment in the service of a grand plan and using his image as a way to avoid Abyssal politics and making himself beneath notice. They use the fact that they themselves are mostly unaffected by the Neglectful King's influence and are empowered to direct it at their enemies instead as evidence of this grander plan. Again, the Neglectful King cannot be bothered to confirm or deny it.


Abyssal layer:

Eyg'huol's realm, I'ke (pronounced Ee-KEH), is a cosmic conundrum: it is layer number -1 of the Abyss. Every planar scholar

Do you think it's possible to invent new horror themes?

Hi there! I'm going for a really open-ended question here, so please chime in with your thoughts, whatever they may be. Let me elaborate.

Horror is a genre close to my heart. Be it movies, games or short stories, I adore this feeling of dread and anxiety, and view it as a great challenge in overcoming fear. In fact, this is what got the idea of making games in my head: building a horror game. I guess we can agree that horror, as an umbrella term, includes overlapping sub-themes that are directly related to the antagonistic force, such as

  • Paranormal - features incorporeal entities like ghosts/demons or a silent entity that manipulates the environment and possibly alternate, twisted manifestations of the world. Demonic rituals, cults, distorted religious imagery and unnatural forces not created through technology. Usually games that focus much less on combat, or totally omit it, opting to create an extremely unsettling atmosphere by dabbling in the unknown or the twisted. Example: Silent Hill

  • Monsters - big subdivision with possible paranormal overlap, including aliens, zombies, lab-created monstrosities, and other non-ethereal creatures. I'm making a loose distinction here, as monsters like vampires are, of course, paranormal, but are 'tangible' and can be countered with weapons most of the time. Those games usually involve survival action mechanics and tend to focus more on creating a stressful atmosphere rather than full-on fear, and introduce a subtle layer of strategy and management. The enemy can be a single powerful entity (Xenomorph) or hordes of them (zombies). Examples: Alien: Isolation, Resident Evil, Dead Space

  • Serial Killer - the player is menaced by either a human psychopath or even some kind of monster. It pursues the creation of suspense and stealth, as the player is mostly powerless against their pursuer. Again, no hard lines with the other types, as the Xenomorph in Alien: Isolation could easily be regarded a 'serial killer'. Example: Friday the 13th

  • Evil Cult - this can have huge overlap with other types like paranormal, but can also be totally grounded in reality as it is defined in the game. Basically, the three sub-sub-categories I can think of are (1) a cult that dabbles in the occult and manages to summon demons (2) a cult that performs rituals/kidnappings/sacrifices in the name of an entity that's fictitious in the game world (3) a cult that has managed to secure some kind of bio-weapon and dei

Legend Arena Tier List and Metagame Breakdown - April 22nd

Same as last time. IGN is Wooper, I'm usually top 100 without any refills, platinum every season so I do know what I'm talking about. All tiered units are good enough to be used in arena at max potential. Character list here so I don't have to hyperlink every single character.

As always, Victory and Overboost 6 (or at least 4) is assumed when referring to units. Victory still gives that tiny speed boost to units (which is of the utmost importance), and the amount of stats conferred by Overboost is just insanity. If you don't have overboost, you simply won't be getting over 1800, and even 1400 will be a struggle. Units are reviewed as if you have access to every unit at high overboost, and as such I will not be giving characters bonus marks because you do not have Aya or Chrome or Bobobo, or because your new Bruno is only OB1.

Again, ALL TIERED UNITS ARE USABLE. If you are at 1200 then you can use C tier units and probably win a bunch. Seiya, Tsuna and Yugi can be monsters if your competition isn’t super strong. This is purely for top level (2000+) play.

At the request of commenters I have added a little bit on the skills I suggest you use for each B-Tier and higher character (number 1 through 4 based on their position in the skill screen/what it is on Scar's character table). If there is a reason to use multiple combinations I will elaborate, and if there is a strange choice there I will probably elaborate on it.

Overview of tier list:

  • S: Top-tier units. If you don't have several of these, chances are your team won't break the big leagues. These characters can go into many teams and often define the metagame.
  • A: High-tier units. Excellent supporting characters, or characters with excellent properties that are somewhat outclassed by S-tier.
  • B: Units with a specific function, usually helping to support the S-tier units. Worth knowing about.
  • C: Units with an extremely specific function. Good to know about, and you should think about subbing them in vs specific teams, but you'll rarely see them on defence..

 

#Short Version New units are bolded

  • S: Bobobo, Bossun/Onihime, Dai, Aya
  • A: SSJ Goku, All Might, Bruno/Giorno, Itsuki, Iori, Rukia, Momo, Joey, Maam, Hyunckel, Nataku, Chrome, Amano Ai
  • B: Naruto V2, Tsubasa, Ryo, Toki, Ace, Kurapika, Sakuragi, Rei, Pop, Fugen, Fuji (JA), Ryoma, Kise, Yamamoto, Korosensei, Vegeta, Hijikata, Sasuke, Hinata, Yuuma, Killua,

Sayaka Maizono

Huh... I just notice there's only been DR1 cuts this round so far... and after reading this title, dear reader you know this will be a third to the pile. Well fret not as Starlight will change that as she dismantles Chiaki shortly following my own post.

Anyway...

 

Backstory

Sayaka grew up without a mother and with a father who was constantly working and busy. In turn she needed someone or something cling to in order to cope with that loneliness. She soon found herself fascinated with pop idols that appeared on television and the positive smiles those idols showed to their televised audience gave her strength. This also led her to become inspired to be an idol herself to also spread that happiness and positive vibes to other people.

 

Unbeknownst to her however... life isn't quite that simple, and she soon learned the harsh truth. The smiles she saw on those idols were mere masks... and she realized that reality in person. She lived that, and had to continue living that. The realization that those smiles that gave her so much courage and support... all of it was fake, a lie... it was probably extremely painful for her. But that was her life now, she couldn't just abandon what she was good at so she too... had to play a part of the idol facade. We also learn she had to do some nasty stuff she wasn't proud of alongside many sacrifices in order to insure her dream as an idol became a reality. In DR3 we get a possible hint to what one of these could have been, idol modeling for an idol magazine in particularly revealing clothing.

 

Maizono and Makoto have a history with each other, they were both in the same middle school, but the two never actually interacted because Makoto was too shy and also starstruck by Sayaka's presence as a celebrity.

 

In her first free time event (which is mandatory for the story and not skippable), we learn that Makoto once cared for a crane and lead it out to the forest nearby the school. This strongly resinated with Sayaka and she herself wanted to be helped much like the crane was. The fact that this minuscule event is even remembered by Maizono after all this time depicts how strongly it left an impact. She wants to be rescued and protected she even wanted to approach Makoto about it but never got the chance until now in their fi

Straightedge/punk/politics - An observer, a million different perpspectives. now, and then. [TLDR]

Okay so I know this might be a very subjective topic and theres gonna be a l o t expressive flak . Which is fine im more interested in getting to know everyones perspective. As this is a place of expressing that, and to everyone else as well.

So with straightedge being a subjective and synonymous thing in hardcore. and with hardcore being a thing in politics and PC punk culture. I notice as hardcore fluctuates , strives , changes and not only in aesthetic and in sound , but also in substance and that's sometimes either overlooked or thrown to the back burner or not surface level not talked about. And so im talking about how politics have changed the lyrical subject and nature of what we call hardcore/punk and how also straightedge maybe the backbone to some of those sub-facets.

So given the current climate of a liberal driven society you have so many different sects of socio-edgers/punks/w.e you wanna call it.

we have a majority of far left pc edge liberalists , conservative working punks , middle neutral conservatists , and so on. and to mention there are levels , tones and nuances to these(which I know there are of course).

So I am asking in a world and place of where everyone is vocal and where being open minded is a thing , and where having a opposite opinion can be debated/challenged in a instant and sometimes either harshly or violently (depending on the team you so favor). I find this to be ironic on a level.

Because of this mob like and militant state of social politics,

Have you either been more pissed off angry and vocal then before ? Do you not care , and just entirely avoid it ?

Has edge ever reinforced or affected how you perceived social politics ?

Some common ones that I always came across where , far left anti - god edge left liberalists , and some conservative Christian edge types to name a few but in short those where 2 ones I have seen or came across a lot, though this is an example.

Examine updates: 1 major, 2 minor, 1 incredibly uneventful

I'll start in reverse, going through the crap one and working up to the major one.

Euonymus Alatus: This was an article on Examine that came up in the search everytime I put in 'astra' for Astragalus (major update) since it has the synonym of Celastraceae, so I wanted to touch it up. Turns out there is no exciting science about this thing at all and I don't even know why I'm putting it here, its just a plant with basic flavonoids in it. Meh.

Bulbine Natalensis is an interesting herb. It does appear to increase testosterone reliably and potently in animals, and from what I have read in forums it does this in humans as well. However, its most interesting because of the negative effects. It has a bell-curve distribution of effects where higher doses seem to actually sap testosterone from you, and the most effective dose is the exact same dose that causes adverse morphological changes in the liver and kidney tubules. Only 11 studies on it, but it has been shown to be harmful and potent already; the most 'steroid-like' herb I have seen.

Another plus for it is that it also decreases estrogen without needing to buy an aromatase inhibitor, but a downside is that if you do a search for the researcher 'Yakuba' you find that all these studies came from one lab. :(

Chrysin the main extract from bee pollen, said to increase testosterone, really doesn't since it isn't absorbed. Potentially healthy, and may protect from colon cancer in a way though.

Astragalus Membranaceus is the herb from which that new longevity supplement 'TA-65' is derived from. I won't go in too much detail into that, since there is a section on the Examine page titled TA-65, but TA-65 is overpriced to fuck astragaloside IV.

TA-65 pills are NOT better than non-isolated Astragaloside IV. 250 'units' of TA-65 is most like 5mg Astragaloside IV, which is 5g Astragalus Membranaceus root extract (1% Astragaloside IV by weight). You can either spend $4,000 over 6 months on a 20mg daily TA-65 habit, or you can get that amount of Astragaloside IV through 20g of Astragalus daily for a 6-month cost of $175 and then bathe in the monetary difference with a top hat and glass of the finest red wine.

Astragalus actually appears to be a very cool molecule. The flavonoid component is qui

ARROUND will Give Anyone the Ability to Experience the World in AR

Introduction to Augmented Reality

  • Augmented Reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment whereby the objects that reside in the real-world are "augmented" by computer-generated perceptual information sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory and olfactory.
  • The overlaid sensory information can be constructive or destructive and is seamlessly interwoven with the physical world such that it is perceived as an immersive aspect of the real environment.
  • In this way, augmented reality alters one’s ongoing perception of a real world environment, whereas virtual reality completely replaces the user's real world environment with a simulated one. Augmented reality is related to two largely synonymous terms: mixed reality and computer-mediated reality.

Augmented Reality (AR) vs Virtual Reality (VR)

Unlike virtual reality, which requires you to inhabit an entirely virtual environment, augmented reality uses your existing natural environment and simply overlays virtual information on top of it. As both virtual and real worlds harmoniously coexist, users of augmented reality experience a new and improved natural world where virtual information is used as a tool to provide assistance in everyday activities.

The Blockchain Overview

A blockchain is a digitized, decentralized, public ledger of all cryptocurrency transactions. Constantly growing as ‘completed’ blocks (the most recent transactions) are recorded and added to it in chronological order, it allows market participants to keep track of digital currency transactions without central recordkeeping. Each node (a computer connected to the network) gets a copy of the blockchain, which is downloaded automatically.

To all: A quick primer on evolution for creationists

> Kingdom: Animalia

> Adaptation within kind: The first of what we call "animals" appear in the fossil record about 542 million years ago, at the very start of the Cambrian explosion. They were of a kind with the earliest fungi and plants; that is to say, they were all eukaryotes. Individual early eukaryotes were remarkably similar to one another, with only minor differences in detail. >> Phylum: Chordata

>> Adaptation within kind: One group of those simple early creatures adapted to its environments by elongating and thinning. Not terribly different from its cousin animals, really, but that long, thin, flexible body definitely gave it some advantages that it passed on, in some circumstances. No new structures, of course. Just the adaptation of some of the body's cells into a sort of primitive backbone. Other early animals adapted to different environments in different ways, but you can't really say we've moved outside of kind just because one group has thinned and lengthened and another group -- say, echinoderms -- has not. Those early echinoderms stayed shorter and a little thicker, by the way, but the ones that survived to breed eventually emphasized other traits I won't go into. >>> Class: Synapsida

>>> Adaptation within kind: Those chordatas really had some success with that whole "backbone" cluster of cells thing they had going on, so they emphasized the heck out of it, adapting it to all kinds of different purposes. Still, it would be pretty hard to say they were no longer of a kind with other chordatas just because they happened to have a particular gap in what we'd call the "skull" part of that bony structure. And really, it could be argued that this wasn't the best adaptation that could have happened for them, because only one small group of them survived. >>>> Class: Mammalia

>>>> Adaptation within kind: Really, mammals weren't that different from their synapsid cousins, especially those in the therapsid subclass. By then, they all had backbones, bilateral symmetry, they were all tetrapods, and so forth. Differences were fairly minor, detail stuff. I mean, what's the difference if your fur is thicker or thinner, or if you're larger or smaller? After all, on the one hand we have gigantic dogs like Great Danes, and on the other, Paris Hilton keeps a dog in her purse. But they're both dogs, of course. Mammals adapted some cells to perform various

My friend had his handicap van stolen from his home.

TL;DR: My friend’s dad with MS had his handicap-accessible van stolen, and we are asking for your help.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I wanted to share this story with Reddit (and the likes of the Internet) with the hopes that you’ll share it to your friends and family. I know it’s a long shot, but I’ve seen some incredible things happen because of the Internet, and I know a family that desperately needs our help.

Mike and Theresa Durbin have lived in Shaker Heights, OH for nearly 25 years. They are the parents of two of my closest friends, and have become as good as family to me over the years. Mike has had Multiple Sclerosis since 1989, but has never let it get in the way of his positive outlook on life. Confined to a wheelchair, there are a few simple joys that fill his day. Cleveland sports, going to church, and taking great pride in the successes of his children. Theresa is one of the strongest women I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. As the main caretaker of Mike, she is also the backbone of the Durbin family.

On the night of December 23rd, thieves broke into their home, and robbed them. They stole Theresa’s purse, Mike’s backpack (right off the back of his electric wheelchair), and then made off with the family’s handicap van. Mike is dependent on this van for ANY sort of means of transportation. Doctor appointments, emergencies, and anything in-between. My group of friends knows the Durbin family to be synonymous with generosity and selflessness. For as long as I’ve known them, they have consistently put themselves before anyone else, even in the face of dealing with one of the most debilitating diseases on a daily basis. So, they are the last people on Earth that should have had this happen to them.

Our local news crews were quick to capture the story. In fact, in an absolutely amazing display of generosity, a woman saw the story on the news and donated her family’s old van to the Durbins. She is even an MS patient herself. It was an incredible gesture, and one that Mike and Theresa are very thankful for. While the donated van is a very temporary fix, their stolen van is still missing.

I am hoping that you upvote this post for visibility, and if you care, copy the link and share it on as much social media as you see fit. I just really want to help this family, and if you’re reading this, I am asking for your help specifically.

The van is a 2013 white Dodge Caravan. Ohio license plate GML 9591. There is a whe

AGI: the HTTP of the AINTERNET + AIoT

Investing in SingularityNET, the AGI protocol, is synonymous to investing in HTTP in the 70-80s during the intranet age looking forward to the internet days when servers, or AI, would freely communicate between themselves as necessary.

AGI lays the groundwork for the increasing pace of ai advancement to catch up to SNET's infrastructure: the AGI protocol.

The price action is largely independent of the actual amount of content, for the internet it was websites, for the AIoT it is neural networks and training data.

Regardless of market price, the companies, blockchains and developers that have already entered into formal cooperations will continue forward as they are economically incentivized to do so, just how large corporations willfully joined the internet with their servers with websites using HTTP, they will upload their algorithms and training data to singularitynet, because it will be cheaper, faster, and more profitable to use AI services through AGI than to pay their researchers to create their own narrow ai applications and pay for the processing power to train them. AGI is the most economically efficent method for getting ai services for businesses, and selling them.

OpenCOG is the backbone library of 20 years of AI research and codebase, with some of the most talented AI researchers on the planet that will be motivated, regardless of price, to upload their algorithms and training data to singularitynet, because they will be economically incentivized to upload every ai worker algorithm they have, so they may get paid to run their training data and minimize the gradient error.

It would be profitable even to just populate SNET with ai workers to let the ones that can economically survive go and thrive, and as more developers submit more, the network effect not only of the ai themselves, but also the people and businesses and blockchains, will increase the overall value at a speed that would require a logarithmic scale to view at all.

From an investment standpoint, with the internet there was no way to benefit from stakeholdership of the HTTP protocol, but it would have been big if HTTP had a limited supply of zero transaction fee, cryptographically secured value transfer token that recursively optimizes and expands itself indefinitely.

All in all, the value of the AI economy in just 10 years will be one of largest markets, if not the largest market on earth. It will infinitely improve and expand ever faster, and its only a matter of

DAE experience physical changes concurrent to emotional changes?

I'm interested if anyone else made a similar experience... About 10 years ago, I suffered from backaches. It was a difficult time, and it felt like my back would break. I couldn't walk straight, when they were bad. I'm sure this was partly because I didn't exercise much, but also because I was still in the fog and tried to be what my parents wanted me to be. I remember this feeling like my backbone would break... well, there's a reason it's synonymous to willpower, I think. I then started to do tai chi and kung fu, got stronger and for a long time I had little trouble with my back.

Now, 10 years later, out of the fog, VLC. I have again some trouble with backaches. But totally different. This time it feels like my backbone wants to straighten itself, like I become more upright and just my muscles are sore because they are not used to it. It feels like my whole posture is changing a bit. My shoulders have been in that slightly fearful pose like forever and seem to relax now...

NA LCS Team Overview - CLG (5/13)

Counter Logic Gaming - Can they regain their previous glory in Season 3?

HotshotGG (Top)

Chauster (Jungle)

Link (Mid)

Doublelift (AD)

Aphromoo (Support)

Team Overview:

CLG is the name synonymous with League of Legends professional e-sports. Being the longest standing and most recognized team since Season One also comes with increased pressure. CLG placed 4th place in the Fall split of the NA LCS, finishing a disappointing 13-15. After losing 2-1 to Vulcan, CLG awaits an upcoming relegation match. CLG has been widely known for their benching of players, which has recently shown little results in terms of tournament wins. However, the overall raw talent of the team is immense. CLG's strategies have remained standard since it's formation, with the designated "Hotshot Split-Push" and "Protect the Doublelift" comps. CLG is looking to revive and rebound this summer. Hopefully, the added pressure will allow them to shine.

Team Strengths:

The Doublelift Show

CLG's AD Doublelift has always been in the discussion of the best AD carries in North America, if not the world. His in-game mechanics and team fight positioning set him up as the main consistent force behind CLG. The team lives and dies by Doublelift.

Quiet Consistency of Link and Aphromoo

Since the pick-up of the two newest members, Link and Aphromoo, they have molded themselves into the CLG style. Aphromoo is a traditional support playing Lulu and Sona almost exclusively. Since transitioning from AD, he has quietly gained a reputation as one of the top 5 supports in NA. When comparing him to his predecessor, Locodoco, he and Doublelift are now one of the most in-sync bot lanes in LCS, in hopes of rectifying the DL/Chauster bot lane. Throughout the LCS, Link had almost fully adopted playing only Lux and Orianna with an occasional AP Nidalee thrown in. Furthermore, he has one of the largest champion pools of all NA mid laners. In terms of consistency, Link is the backbone of CLG. He leaves the big-plays up to Doublelift and game by game consistently performs his role of support/DPS mid laner.

Team Weaknesses

Inability to adapt to the meta

Since Season One, the split-push comp has been CLG's main go to strategy. All their opponents know what they're going to run. It's extremely predictable and boring, almost to a fault. Whether it be CLG's inability to adapt to the new meta or just plain stubbornness, it's holding them back. Aside from a single Karthus top game that wen

One Dream

One of the main issues in the foundation problems of quantum mechanics is related to the role of the observer in the observation process. The primary object in science is to assume the external world of matter as independent of the observer (Cartesian dualism), where one can eliminate the observer’s effect on the physical system. This is the belief system generally held in natural science and it is in conformity with the materialist view. The Copenhagen interpretation provided a new perspective regarding the interaction of the outside world and the observer. Bohr himself said that we are not simply participating as the spectators of the great drama of this world but also as actors. The observer always influences the outcome of his experiment.

In quantum mechanics, the description of the observation process remains as the central issue. The observation induces a kind of disturbance to the system to be observed so that it is not meaningful to say what was there before the measurement. In general, physicist think that observation or measurements are purely physical phenomena. In this context Pauli had a different view. To Pauli, physics and psychology together do describe the overall reality. Physics can only describe the rational features of reality. He stressed that psyche must be included in our conception of reality in order to understand the irrational aspects of reality. According to Pauli, in addition to consciousness, the unconscious plays an essential role. Here, Pauli made connection Jungian unconscious, not to the Freudian subconscious.

Experiences associated with mental states such as meditation, as well as ordinary sleep characterized by theta brain waves, all cannot fit within the standard paradigm. For example, in sleep states, the sense of ordinary linear time often disappears as well as the sense of a single person identity. In advanced meditative states, the sense of separate identity dissolves etc.

Individuality, or personality, according to Yoga Vasistha, does not consist in being anything like a simple, undecomposible, spiritual entity, called soul in the West and cit by Ramanuja in India. It consists, on the other hand, in being a manas, a mind, which means a peculiar mode of the Ultimate Reality determined by a peculiar movement, tendency, desire, or will to imagine. The form is in perpetual change, as Bergson also thinks, for it is determined by ever changing, activity. Activity and personality are identical for Vasistha. They are t

Stats giving the wrong idea about latest Mercy patch?

Been doing lots of reading on how the latest Mercy rework has impacted the meta, and a major point I've seen brought up time and time again is that the number of resurrections per game has, on average, effectively doubled across all ELOs. This then becomes the backbone for the argument posing Mercy as an overpowered character. And it makes sense... pre-patch, res was almost certainly at least a bit ridiculous... because it effectively reset entire team fights, negating the ultimates used by the other team during, and swaying the ult econ in the Mercy's team's favor hugely. This is the key difference between pre- and post-patch Mercy res. Yes, these days res is a commodity, but the prevalence of the ability over the course of an entire game does not at all represent the prevalence of the ability over the course of a team fight. The ability is now much more synonymous with getting a pick; in fact, it is an "anti-pick". Great starting place for an engagement where both teams lose a member quickly, great way to deter an engagement where the enemy gets a pick early on, but does not win fights nor games outright in the manner the old res could. In overwatch, it has always been and always will be all about numbers. Ults win games because they get kills (or, in the old days, undo kills) in very rapid succession. SO in my opinion, this new Mercy will never be as powerful as the old one, because 20 res in a game still isn't as valuable as instant 4 res in overtime on the last point.

Fear, Anger, and Aggression: An Examination of Imperial Doctrine Under Palpatine

Greetings, all! I've been meaning to write on this subject for awhile, so let me apologize in advance for how long it got. I left out a lot of further examples to keep the length down, but I'd be happy to keep discussing this if people are interested.

 

I think many of us agree that not all aspects of Imperial military doctrine seem to make sense. They are a massive, battle-hardened military organization with the resources of the entire galaxy at their disposal, and yet they experience setback after setback without any real change in doctrine or strategy. Yavin, Hoth, Endor: these are the effects of Imperial doctrine. I’d like to propose a possible cause.

 

The Empire may be a galaxy-spanning organization of billions of faceless soldiers and bureaucrats, but in the end it is defined by one man: the Emperor. His will and guile created the Empire and organized it from the top down into exactly what he intended it to be. He successfully played the entire galaxy against itself for decades leading into a plan that destroyed the Jedi almost completely; I think we can assume that, some arrogance about Skywalkers aside, the Emperor is not incompetent. The Empire is built exactly how he wants it: not for maximum efficiency, but for maximum benefit.

 

Yoda sums it up right there. Political power isn’t what the Emperor created the Empire for -- one of his closest advisors, Tashu, says as much in an Imperial council meeting in Aftermath. He already had power as the Supreme Chancellor, more than anyone else in the galaxy. I propose that what he wanted was the strengthening of the dark side and the destruction of the light, and the Empire’s inefficient and sometimes self-defeating doctrinal choices stem from that goal.

 

The Force

First and foremost, this theory assumes that, as Yoda explains on Dagobah, the Force flows through all living things, connecting them and binding them together. The mental state of living beings in large enough numbers can cross vast distances and affect the Force itself. Obi-wan senses the horror and death of everyone living on Alderaan, and it seems to physically affect him. Before and during the Clone Wars, Sidious’ plan depended on the chaos and terror of galaxy-spanning war to help cloud the Jedi’s judgment and awareness. Yoda specifically mentions the dark side has grown stronger -- and conversely, the light side weaker.

Portraying a relation between three different races in the galaxy (but none of them are technically aliens)

I'm writing a sci-fi story that has three different races. However, none of them are technically aliens. This takes place several hundred years into the future, where humankind have colonized the galaxy.

Those three races are: Human, Meta, and Bionic.

  • Humans are the most common race in the galaxy by far, existing in billions. They're essentially the bread-and-butter of the galaxy, as they serve as the backbone in building civilization through space. They don't have special powers (at least, not usually), but often make up for that with their skill, tenacity, and equipment. The majority of the characters in the story are humans, reflecting the reality of them being the most common.
  • Metas are essentially mutated humans, having the Meta Gene that originated from the Metavirus from the early days of colonization. They have skin colors that range from blue, green, grey, white (literally), or red, and often have special powers. Though far fewer in number than humans, they have made up for it with their sheer potential. Because metas have developed their own culture on Xion in isolation from the rest of the galaxy, their names are usually more alien-sounding than what humans have.
  • Bionics are sentient machines. Because of this blanket term, bionics come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. "Bionic" is a name derived from the company that initially manufactured them: Bionica. They were created initially to serve a variety of tasks, from household chores to military duties, but through self-improving algorithms, they eventually gained the ability to think for themselves. Often they have a nickname, as their technical name is harder to remember, often involving numbers.

As you can see here, there are no aliens but there are three races populating the galaxy. Rather, in the most basic terms, there are humans, mutated humans, and sentient machines.

What I wanted to ask is, how do you guys think it should be done? I want to portray a running theme of prejudice in the series, but at the same time, I don't want to hammer it in too much. I don't want anyone to shoulder the blame specifically (it would be really easy to say "oh, it's the humans who are the real monsters!" like so many other sci-fi stories these days).

The general idea is that humans and metas have a working relationship in general, but racism runs rampant on both sides. The humans often condemn the metas for being different, while the metas view themselves as being superior to humans for their abi

#WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW The 10K Genes Project aims to increase access to biological tools. In order to create a large variety of free-to-use genes, we have partnered with Twist Bioscience to synthesize a large quantity of DNA that is unambiguously under open terms.

Please remember that as of this writing (November 2017) the 10K Genes Project is still in its beta phase, and so there may be significant lag time for your samples.

##Introduction The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for the preparation of sequences for submission to the Bionet 10k Genes Project. We hope the 10k Genes Project will be an incredible opportunity for sharing amongst the biotechnology community and beyond. Through standardization of the parts the community can create contributing genes or parts that will be beneficial to others.

##Background In June 2017 Twist Bioscience and the BioBricks Foundation announced a First-of-its-Kind partnership to provide 10,000 genes to the synthetic biology community (1). Under the terms of the agreement, the BioBricks Foundation (BBF) will pay for synthesis of 10,000 genes from Twist Bioscience. The BBF will moderate a free and open online forum that allows researchers anywhere to suggest which genes should be built.

The aim is to enable a distributed community of people to collectively propose and prioritize 10,000 genes for ab initio DNA synthesis. Proposed genes will be checked for safety/security aspects, technical suitability, and potential third-party patent claims. Those genes will then be synthesized and be made available to the entire synthetic biology community under the Open Material Transfer Agreement (OpenMTA - see below).

##Explanation for iGemers Welcome to our project, and thank you for taking the time to read our documentation.

iGem and the 10K Genes Project are similar and different in many ways. While both projects aim to distribute large quantities of DNA and facilitate open learning about biotechnology, 10K Genes does this in a couple of unique ways:

  1. Unambiguous sharing through the Open Material Transfer Agreement (OpenMTA)
  • iGem does not include MTAs with their distribution kits, and only distributes to non-profits or educational facilities. Outside of iGEM, however, academic institutions and companies typically require an MTA be in place before materials can be shared. And even in cases where no MTA in signed, the restricti

Death and Rebirth

It is with a heavy heart that the latest news must be spread. The Persian Emperor is dead. Court officials have reported it was due to natural causes. Unfortunately, the Emperor had no heirs or closely related family. Because of this, the former Emperor's advisers have announced a series of reforms influenced by various neighboring countries in order to build a stable government not solely reliant on a single person.

Ideology

Imperial Persia was far too decentralized. Fixing this is a primary concern. Instead of using religion, keeping the country as a secular state, from now on, emphasis will be placed on the idea of racial Aryan supremacy, of which most in the Persian region identify as. Reminders of their people's great past, like the large empires and advancement of technology, will be a major factor in shaping the country's current and future plans. The continuation and greatness of the State will be more important than any single citizen, though all (male and 20 year old plus) citizens will have their fair share of equal rights and privileges. The end goal being a more centralized administration.

Paths

Additionally, a caste like system will be put into effect, called Paths. A citizen's Path will be a role designated to them by the State, which indicates what jobs or functions the person may perform, as well as their standing in society. The Path doesn't determine exactly what job a person must have, rather, it determines what types of jobs a person may have. Unlike a caste system, all Paths will be "separate but equal", and chances to move up in each Path will occur every five years and will be based on merit and experience. Paths will be determined by family heritage, with each new child starting at the bottom of each path. Women will also receive a path, though they will also be encouraged to have children just as much, if not more so, then following their Path. Love between members of different Paths will be strictly prohibited.

Those foreigners who wish to join the State must serve in the Guardian path for three years to gain citizenship. If the foreigner has highly specialized skills elsewhere, the High Council may change the Path they are required to serve in for citizenship.

Government

High Council

The High Council will be made up of a single leader from each path, enact laws, policies, and other duties for the entire State. Religious leaders, Province Representatives, and high ranking officials from tributary sta

Terker's Top 50 Previews: George Washington Colonials

###George Washington Colonials

Head Coach: Mike Lonergan (4th year)

Projected Starting Lineup

PG Joe McDonald - 6'1", 187 Junior (8.3 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 4.1 apg)

SG Kethan Savage - 6'3", 200 Junior (12.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 2.6 apg)

SF Patricio Garino - 6'6", 208 Junior (12.1 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 1.6 spg)

PF John Kopriva - 6'8", 215 Senior (1.9 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 0.4 apg)

C Kevin Larsen - 6'10", 247 Junior (11.4 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 0.7 bpg)

Key Bench Players

G Nick Griffin - 6'2", 178 Sophomore (1.8 ppg, 0.4 rpg, 48% 3FG)

Key Recruits

G Paul Jorgensen - 6'2", 180 Freshman (3-star prospect)

G Darian Bryant - 6'4", 192 Freshman (3-star prospect)

F Anthony Swan - 6'6", 200 Freshman (unranked prospect)

F Yuta Watanbe - 6'7", 190 Freshman (3-star prospect)

F Ryan McCoy - 6'8", 207 Junior (1.0 ppg, 1.1 rpg, 0.6 apg @ Manhattan in 2012-13)

F/C Matt Cimino - 6'9", 220 Freshman (3-star prospect) .......................................................................................

After winning only 23 games during Mike Lonergan's first two seasons in Foggy Bottom, the Colonials smashed preseason expectations last year and earned an invite to the NCAA Tournament. Transfer stars Maurice Creek (Indiana) and Isiah Armwood (Villanova) led the charge as a quartet of talented sophomores came of age, and now GW has its eyes set on becoming an every-year Atlantic 10 contender.

Kethan Savage, Patricio Garino, Joe McDonald and Kevin Larsen - now juniors - are the backbone of Lonergan's group. Savage is a big, strong guard who affects the game in a variety of ways. His deep jumper isn't the most reliable weapon in his repertoire, but he's adept at driving and has a good handle to finish near the rim or pull up. A gifted playmaker as well, Savage has a huge impact on the passing game, both in racking up assists and filching opponents' passes (to the tune of 36 in only 19 games last season). The team needs Savage on the court for every game, because his skills are a perfect compliment to McDonald's and the two guards feed off of one another. Garino is a smooth, poised shooter at forward who started making more things happen inside the 3pt arc last season. He also got to the charity stripe at a clip of almost 5 attempts per game, but the Argentinian needs to mightily improve on the 59% he shot on freebies last year. The Colonials absolutely must have Savage and Garino on the court every night this season, as they combined to miss 21 games last year.

Larsen, however, m

Questions Answers
Which feature/spec of the PS4 are you most excited about as developers? More power. More and Faster RAM.
Commitment to indies. Commitment to games in general!
What platform do you guys use to develop the game? Is it true you use old G5s ? For PS4 will you just use x86 workstations? We work on mostly windows, and some linux. The editing team uses macs. Amy Henning writes on the mac as well.
How is it to work with Nolan North? Nolan is awesome. He brings so much to Drake that it is scary. We collaborate with the actors, and many time Nolan comes up with ideas on the fly that end up in the game. Many of the little observations that Drake makes on his adventures are off the cuff from Nolan during ADR.
He is also crazy versatile. Check out David from the TLOU.
He's amazing. I was shocked when I learned it was him doing the voice of David. Also, his Penguin. Glad to know he's as awesome as he seems. When was the last time you saw him there at ND? I think it was when he came to get his copy of TLOU.
How much do you love scripting in scheme? Like, a lot? We could probably replace our editor with notepad. Nice try Cowboy.
The scripting is fine but the programmers are terrible!
If you were to, theoretically speaking, make a game that takes place in outer space, would Nathan Drake be a potential character that would appear there? Well, what point in time of mankind's existence would this theoretical game take place?

Official Proposal: Vote to clarify the combination of numerals

Hi all,

u/AceGravity12 has raised an Official Proposal to clarify the combination of numerals.

This proposal has been approved by the Official Proposal Committee for voting.

Current state:

I've heard multiple different interpretations of how numbers currently combine together. This isn't currently specified by the Encapsulated Language Documentation.

Proposed state:

Numerals preceding a numeral with a larger magnitude get combined.

Example Meaning
wafun fun 1001
wafun vin fun 1000, 1

Reason:

Currently phrases like "wil wafun fun" have have multiple meanings; while synonyms aren't in them selves a problem, math is the backbone of this language so it's important that we can clearly talk about numbers when required.

This proposal doesn't change how things like phone numbers can be individually "spelled out" with mono-numerals, just like how "A P P L E" isn't a grammatically correct way of saying "apple" in English.

Slang Worldwide $SLNG $SLGWF - A Rundown

TLDR: This is a basic rundown of the model and mission of Slang Worldwide. In it I present their brands, distribution, management, partnerships, and where they are headed. I’ve written what I could with the information available to me and to the extent of my current knowledge. I’m a big fan of Slang and I believe they are set to be a very successful company in the long term. I have not invested in them yet, although I likely will be at some point and I'm just waiting to see their further developments, among other non-Slang related reasons. As always, I don’t claim this to be a flawless write up or be void of any incorrect information. Do your own DD and make sure you understand what you might be potentially investing in.

  • (2) Introduction To Slang Worldwide & Company Mission
  • (3) Slang’s Management Team, History, and Formation
  • (4) Slang’s Products & Brand Portfolio
  • (5) Why Slang Avoids Cultivation/Retail
  • (6) Distribution & Partnerships
    • (A) Trulieve Relationship
    • (B) Canopy Relationship
    • (C) Origin House Relationship
  • (7) The Future Of Slang & Concluding Thoughts

(1) Forward Statement & Important Notes:

For those familiar with Origin House (formerly CannaRoyalty), Slang has a very similar focus to OH’s California distribution/branding operations, although with some differences between their operational models which should be obvious between these write ups. For those unfamiliar with my previous write up on Origin House I would recommend reading it as these two companies share a similar model, approach to the market and the logic behind their missions. Slang’s model is also built around being scalable and “capital light” which is a big difference from most of the current publicly listed US cannabis companies MSO (multi-state operator) capital intensive retail/cultivation focused model. I always try to keep my write up’s fairly unbiased and direct, but since this relates to the appeal and differentiator of Slang’s operational model and because my bias might seep through in this write up...I thought it was important to note that I’m not a big fan of MSO’s in terms of having the right model for long term success.

Legend Arena Tier List and Metagame Breakdown - March 17th

Same as last time. IGN is Wooper, I'm usually top 100 without any refills, platinum every season so I do know what I'm talking about. All tiered units are good enough to be used in arena at max potential. Character list here so I don't have to hyperlink every single character.

As always, Victory and Overboost 6 (or at least 4) is assumed when referring to units. Victory still gives that tiny speed boost to units (which is super important), and the amount of stats conferred by Overboost is just insanity. If you don't have overboost, you simply won't be getting over 1800, and even 1400 will be a struggle. Units are reviewed as if you have access to every unit at high overboost, and as such I will not be giving characters bonus marks because you do not have Aya or Chrome or Bobobo, or because your new Bruno is only OB1.

Overview of tier list:

  • S: Top-tier units. If you don't have several of these, chances are your team won't break the big leagues.
  • A: High-tier units. Excellent supporting characters, or characters with excellent properties that are somewhat outclassed by S-tier.
  • B: Units with a specific function, usually helping to support the S-tier units. Worth knowing about.
  • C: Usable filler. Good to know about, but you'll rarely see them.

&nbsp;

#Short Version

  • S: Bobobo, Bossun/Onihime, Dai, Aya, Bruno/Giorno
  • A: SSJ Goku, Itsuki, Iori, Momo, Joey, Maam, Hyunckel, Nataku, Chrome, Sakuragi, Rei, Amano Ai
  • B: Mista, Ace, Kurapika, Pop, Fugen, Yamamoto, Korosensei, Vegeta, Rukia, Hijikata, Sasuke, Hinata, Yuuma, Vivi, Seto Kaiba, Taikoubou, Cobra, Yamcha, Sanji
  • C: Byakuya, Usopp, Onodera, Yami, Erina

#S Tier

##Bobobo

Even though many teams are starting to care less and less about him, Bobobo is undoubtedly the biggest hoser they’ll ever release, and is still a huge wrench in many teams’ plans. His first skill randomly stops Onihime and other ult-dependent nukers from doing anything for the whole game. His third skill randomly does the same thing, but to anybody not immune to debuffs. His ultimate deals a hefty chunk of damage, and also carries that skill sealing effect. Seals and stuns are practically synonymous with Bobobo at this point, and he is the reason why many units are good or bad at all. While a lot of teams eschew him, I would strongly advise building a Bobobo up, as he is pretty much future-proof.

##Bossun (Yusuke) and Onihime

Eyg'huol In'kmpleon, the Neglectful King (another homebrew deity for your Pathfinder campaign)

Once again, here's a new deity for your Pathfinder campaign! This time, however, we're finally crossing over to the Evil side of the spectrum, bringing you an insidious Demon Lord from the depths (?) of the Abyss.

Today I bring you: Eyg'huol In'kmpleon, Demon Lord of Abandonment!


Name: Eyg'huol In'kmpleon (pronounced AY-Goo-Ohl Een-COOM-Pleh-Ohn)

Titles: The Neglectful King, The One Who Cares Not

Position: Demon Lord of Abandonment, Dereliction and Indifference

Holy symbol: A broken bridge over a putrid green circle

Alignment: Chaotic Evil

Cleric alignments: Chaotic Evil, Neutral Evil

Portfolio: Abandonment of friends and family, dereliction of duty, apathy, vice

Domains: Evil, Chaos, Sloth, Charm

Favored weapon: Crossbow


Appearance:

Eyg'huol In'kmpleon has no set form, but unlike other chaotic deities that have shifting countenance, it is not because he's a mercurial deity or one associated with a dynamic force, he simply does not care. When he does bother with taking a particular form, he'll appear as a non-descript humanoid with no distinguishing features and bland clothing that doesn't call attention. Sometimes, he'll even just take the form of the person adressing him, not even bothering to make an effort to make a form on his own. When he speaks, it is in dull, emotionless monotone, and his voice sounds raspy and phlegmy. Any being who makes contact with him forgets what he looks or sounds like moments after concluding any communication with him. Many people theorize that he's not even truly male, just choosing to be referred to as male for the sake of simplicity. As can be expected, Eyg'huol can't be bothered to confirm or deny that rumor.

Some worshippers of the One Who Cares Not theorize that his indifference is actually a front, that he feigns dispassionateness and passivity but is in fact a highly intelligent chessmaster, using his power to seed disillusionment in the service of a grand plan and using his image as a way to avoid Abyssal politics and making himself beneath notice. They use the fact that they themselves are mostly unaffected by the Neglectful King's influence and are empowered to direct it at their enemies instead as evidence of this grander plan. Again, the Neglectful King cannot be bothered to confirm or deny it.


Abyssal layer:

Eyg'huol's realm, I'ke (pronounced Ee-KEH), is a cosmic conundrum: it is layer number -1 of the Abyss. Every planar scholar

NA LCS Team Overview - CLG (5/13)

Counter Logic Gaming - Can they regain their previous glory in Season 3?

HotshotGG (Top)

Chauster (Jungle)

Link (Mid)

Doublelift (AD)

Aphromoo (Support)

Team Overview:

CLG is the name synonymous with League of Legends professional e-sports. Being the longest standing and most recognized team since Season One also comes with increased pressure. CLG placed 4th place in the Spring split of the NA LCS, finishing a disappointing 13-15. After losing 2-1 to Vulcan, CLG awaits an upcoming relegation match. CLG has been widely known for their benching of players, which has recently shown little results in terms of tournament wins. However, the overall raw talent of the team is immense. CLG's strategies have remained standard since it's formation, with the designated "Hotshot Split-Push" and "Protect the Doublelift" comps. CLG is looking to revive and rebound this summer. Hopefully, the added pressure will allow them to shine.

Team Strengths:

The Doublelift Show

CLG's AD Doublelift has always been in the discussion of the best AD carries in North America, if not the world. His in-game mechanics and team fight positioning set him up as the most dangerous force driving CLG. The amount of pressure to succeed remains solely on Doublelift's shoulders. The team lives and dies by Doublelift and, as a result, his performance reflects that of his team.

Quiet Consistency of Link and Aphromoo

Since the pick-up of the two newest members, Link and Aphromoo, they have molded themselves into the CLG style. Aphromoo is a traditional support playing Lulu, Thresh, and Sona almost exclusively. Since transitioning from AD, he has quietly gained a reputation as one of the top 5 supports in NA. When comparing him to his predecessor, Locodoco, he and Doublelift are now one of the most cohesive bot lanes in LCS, in hopes of rectifying the previous DL/Chauster bot lane synergy. Throughout the LCS, Link had almost fully adopted playing only Lux and Orianna with an occasional AP Nidalee thrown in. Furthermore, he has one of the largest champion pools of all NA mid laners. In terms of consistency, Link is the backbone of CLG. Game by game Link consistently performs in his role of support/DPS mid laner.

Team Weaknesses

Inability to adapt to the meta

Since Season One, the split-push comp has been CLG's main go to strategy. All their opponents know what they're going to run. It's extremely predictable and boring, almost to a fault. Whether it be CLG's inab

[NA] StrictlyBusiness PVP Focused, Recruiting Hardcore Gamers (Guild founded 10/15/17)

Who We Are

We are an up and coming guild founded on October 15 2017. This guild was created on the backbone of extremely experienced and competitive leaders who all have a persevered attitude towards reaching end-game primarily focused on PvP. However we also dabble in PvE, and general content. We plan on being a force to be reckoned with inside the PvP realm whilst simultaneously ensuring we’re kept up to date with current and upcoming PvE content. We plan on dominating Node Wars in the not so distant future as well as participating in high-end sieges for maximum control. The leader and officers of this guild are synonymous, meaning that we maintain equal control and say within the guild, ensuring that no dictatorship can arise. The guild in its entirety is meant to build each other up through practice and synergy building and we heavily rely on communication to do so. This guild is meant to become both tight-knit and dominate in any circumstance it is put in. We are picky with our recruits and will never end up being a “zerg” guild. We are currently a Medium Sized Guild.

Who we're for

We are looking to recruit any current, new, or returning black desert players who want to begin to stamp out the groundwork for an astounding guild. At this moment in time, we’re not measuring our players simply in the amount of gear score they have, but by their dedication, perseverance, and personality. We are, however, aware that the implementation of gear score and class requirements may become necessary at some point as we continue to grow and strive for goals. We come from a background of extremely active gamers who are not afraid of putting in time and effort to become the best. We aim for those gamers who consider themselves willing to put in the effort, time, and dedication into this guild. If you consider yourself willing to go the extra mile, to push your gaming, to overcome any obstacle, then this is the guild for you.

Requirements

-If you’re a new players we require you to be a non-casual gamer. Meaning able to put in 5+ hours daily to be able to catch up on gear score. We keep a close eye on newer players progression speed. -For those that are 500+ GS the only activity required from you is our nodewar/siege attendance. ​ -Be part of our community. Our discord is extremely active and we would love for all members to be apart of that.
