###THE RED BULL JUNIOR TEAM PRODUCES LOSERS
In this world, there are only so many winners.
It is inherently unequal. The winners have to be the select few. Nobody can be the pick of the litter if there is no litter to compare it to. Every class has its valedictorian, but everyone else is just... 'normal'. Some may win scholarships, but they're not the ones making the fancy graduation speech.
The Red Bull Junior Team claims to be this cream of the crop. They're the school of the four-time World Champion. The breeding ground for young record breakers and eternally happy Australians. Join Marko, and you're not only guaranteed a spot on the dance floor, but you'll become the prom king (or queen/gender-neutral royalty).
However, life's not all that beautiful for Marko's men and women. For every Vettel and Verstappen, you have Kvyat and Gasly. For every Gasly and Kvyat, you h... keep reading on reddit ➡
We all have our semi informed opinions on fighter pay. I decided to do some actual math using as my source the most accurate and infallible internet.
So in 2019 the UFC is said to have paid out 16% of it's revenue in fighter pay (and i'm guessing bonuses and perks like drug tests). By comparison the NFL paid out 48% in player salaries.
OK but what does that mean?
The UFC is estimated to have made between 980,000,000 to 1,100,000,000 dolars in revenue for 2019. Cool, so lets make the math easy and say 1 billion.
So there were, according to the interwebz, 517 fights in 2019. Assuming no one fought themselves, that means 1034 instances of fighters fighting and being paid. here comes some math but it'll be ok:
16% of 1 billion is 160,000,000. so that's how much fighters got paid. That means the average payment for a fighter for one fight in the ufc in 2019 was 160,000,000 / 1034 or about $154,738.88.
Now...this number hmmm... to me it feels fishy. I mean yes fighters at the... keep reading on reddit ➡

I just wanted to call your attention to an editorial in the New York Times today from a former Sephora employee, describing how abysmally she was treated as an employee and as a casualty of the coronavirus retail closures. I'm not surprised--I know that retail workers are treated horribly in this country by many large corporations--and I'm not sure that boycotts are always an effective or useful tactic. But I do know that in this moment, when companies are hurting and will be more attentive to customers and their complaints, raising our voices and demanding better treatment of employees from a company like Sephora may be more effective than ever. I know many of the people who frequent this subreddit are loyal Sephora shoppers, and I just wanted to bring some attention to this woman's experience and suggest that those who, like me, find it appalling [write a... keep reading on reddit ➡
What was your portfolio like? Who did you contact? How far into “taking art seriously” were you? Was it what you expected? and anything else you feel would be important to add.. thank you !
You can read between the lines that her intended ending was NatxRui, but she has to keep throwing Hina in the mix to “keep readers guessing.” It’s BS.
My only explanation as to why Hina is still relevant to the storyline.
In real life, a mentally healthy person would have just stopped talking to Natsuo for a while until after he got married to Rui due to all the baggage.
Not sure why she feels obligated to “to live for him and his happiness .” It’s ridiculous.
While insecure, at least Rui has demonstrated she is independent and can be her own woman.
Everyone (from real people/readers to in-story characters) pities Hina, that’s it...that’s her only input in the story at this moment in time.
Crazy! It actually happened! Wrote, recorded, mixed it in my home studio, then did my own pr for it. I can’t believe it! I do have a question tho. The 3rd playlist it got added on is called a ‘Spotify Personalized Editorial’ playlist. It’s a unique playlist where they change the order of the song within the playlist. And they give you a unique link where your song is on the top of the playlist. Has anyone gotten on one of these by any chance? Anyways it’s exciting!
Welcome back to Editorials on the Imperial Arsenal, in which I, a somewhat-informed amateur, look at my beloved Astra Militarum’s weapons and vehicles and talk about the ways in which I want to change them, based primarily on the lore and secondly on my limited knowledge of the game rules. If by some miracle a GW person reads this, they have blanket permission to use these ideas.
We all know the lasgun. And if you don’t also love the lasgun, I have bad news for you: You’re stupid. Lasguns have the exact sort of logistical convenience that the Imperial Guard’s vast size and responsibilities demand, all while being powerful enough to handily dispatch the most common enemies that Guardsmen face— namely, human cultists/rebels and Orks. Different lasgun designs are almost as plentiful as lasguns themselves, and the Lexicanum description of the [Sollex Pattern-IX “Death Light”](https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Lasgun#Sollex_Pattern-IX_.E2.80.9CDea... keep reading on reddit ➡

Adam, along with 200+ other actors, has signed an editorial urging world leaders against 'going back to normal' and asked leaders and everyone "to undertake a profound overhaul of our goals, values, and economies." The editorial is written by Juliette Binoche and astrophysicist Aurelien Barrau.
Here is the actual editorial that has the long list of artists and others who signed it.

I've been a writer of Haphne for almost a decade now, recently I've been working on a video examining Daphne Greengrass' fandom popularity, the Ice Queen persona that has come to be associated with her and Harry Potter fanfiction as a whole. Considering how popular the character is, it's shocking she gets so little exposure in other platforms, I figured it was about time we fixed that. It's finally finished and uploaded, I'll post a link below! It features custom artwork of both Daphne and Tracey Davis, includes some fanfic recommendations and even references this subreddit a handful of times.
Hope you guys enjoy it! If you do, chuck us a cheeky like and subscribe, we need all the traction we can get. If the vid does well I'd absolutely be up for doing more videos on the subject!
EDIT: I appreciate the kind comments! If you guys could help me out against the Youtube algor... keep reading on reddit ➡
