Vlad Tenev (CEO) & Baiju Bhatt (Co-founder) are ex-High Frequency Traders. They started out their careers as HFTs to engage in market manipulation & front running for profit. Only then did they realize that selling order flow to allow other HFTs to front-run and manipulate the markets was a much more profitable & scalable business than being an HFT themselves. Thus Robinhood was born.
"In 2010, Tenev and Bhatt started a high-frequency trading company called Celeris. By January 2011 they abandoned it to create Chronos Research, which sold low-latency software to other trading firms and banks.
In 2013, Tenev and Bhatt co-founded the trading platform Robinhood."
As ex-HFTs, they 100% knew what they were doing today by halting buy orders on Gamestop.
I don't doubt that Robinhood's clearing firm Apex Corporation was under massive stress / risk of short sellers not being able to cover their positions with $GME's price above $400 and only trending upwards. Hell, Interactive Brokers Chairman openly said that on CNBC here.
However by forcing their customers to not be able to buy $GME, and also allow them to sell $GME and actively close positions of users who artificially were forced into a margin call by MMs trading the stock down on low volume is disgusting.
They KNEW that by allowing users to not be able to buy $GME, but to be able sell $GME, MMs would to take advantage of the sell pressure & low volume on the stock in order to tank the price. They KNEW that some of their users would panic sell or be liquidated by margin calls from the artificially decrease in price by MMs from $450 to $150 after the halt. They also KNEW that once the price dropped enough, due to manufactured sell pressure, shorts could cover enough of their positions so that the stress on clearance houses would be eased and all order in the world of HFTs would be restored.
If Vlad & Baiju were actually looking out for their users, and not their actual customers the HFTs, they would have restricted all purchases & sales of Gamestop stock or placed a 1-2 halt on all trading of $GME. Clearly, they did not do that and it shows who... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi. I have an easy system for memorizing the entire audible range of note frequencies. It’s 99.20% accurate (less than 1 cent off and even better if you’re halfway decent at math) and you can probably memorize it in an hour. 6:52 of this video:
EDIT: Well, shoot. 500+ upvotes plus an award - thank you! Happy music making!
EDIT 2: “Why?” All I can say is try it. Try composing or mixing 10 tracks with this before you make up your mind about whether it’s useful or not. I find it useful but I respect you if you try it and decide it’s not for you. Please don’t discourage others from learning, though.
If I want to use a synth bass for extreme lows and a bass guitar for higher frequencies, what are some tricks to make them sit well together and sound like one instrument?
It seems like over the last 4-5 years there have been more and more frequent reports of crazies roaming the trail. Not here to fear monger and I know all the standard rhetoric on how safe the trail is statistically and all of that. I'm not saying it is unsafe. I'm saying there seems to be a higher frequency of issues with crazies steadily rising year after year, where as in the past it was a lot less common. I'm not talking your standard trail weirdo "crazies", I actually like those guys. I mean like the actual downright scary ones who you feel really uncomfortable around.
For me, I've just found other things like writing music to be a more fulfilling use of my free time. I still play some indie titles on my Switch that are easy to just pick up/put down but bigger single player ones always take me forever to finish nowadays since I rarely find the time to pick them up.
I have a 2020 Mazda 3 Sport
A couple days ago the service sign popped up on my car. I’m seeing online some people saying every 10,000kms some saying less. So what is it?
Also what else will i need to get serviced at this point, haven’t been to the dealership since i bought the car in August 2020.
Last question, do i need to/ is it better to get my oil changed at the Mazda dealership i bought my car from?
I love the attempt to listen to the community where food and water was concerned. But I think the point was missed. If you want to take advantage of the new buffs, you still need to be CONSTANTLY feeding and watering your character to an annoying degree. All we really wanted was extended duration for the food/water bar decay. It really is that simple. How y'all got this current fix instead of a very simple tweak that would have solved the whole problem, I don't know, but we weren't asking for that. We wanted to not have to be eating and drinking to an unreasonable degree. Please roll back the change (See "Edit") and extend the duration it takes for the food/water bars to decay. That's what we really wanted.
Never having to eat or drink at all makes no sense. Having to eat and drink at 10x reasonable speed doesn't either. Punishing players who don't like dealing with an over-active mechanic by denying them buffs if they don't eat and drink is not the proper solution. Just slow down how fast the character gets hungry and thirsty to reasonable levels, man!
Edit: After giving people a day to comment, and going back over what people are saying, I have decided that reverting the changes entirely isn't in everyone's interest. However, extending the time it takes for the player to get hungry and thirsty again IS something everyone seems to agree with and want, with very, very few exceptions, and I stand by that. That's still my gripe, not whether eating and drinking kills you or wanting the changes reverted. This was even further reinforced for me while doing the new Brotherhood quests. I had to stop what I was doing multiple times to deal with a growling stomach, and losing the point of Strength from being well fed suddenly causing me to be over-encumbered, even though you can complete this whole new quest line in a matter of a few hours. It also shouldn't take as much food as it does to fill the hunger bar. Good lord, you have to be a walking refrigerator just to carry enough food not to have to go hunting for it during an evening's worth of play. Who needs to eat 5 boxes of Mac N' Cheese or salisbury steaks, and drink 4 liters of water just to be full, no matter HOW hungry they are?!?!
I tried to find a chart for phoneme frequency but couldn't, so I decided to make one. I can't remember the exact languages I used but it was the most common ones of differing language groups.
Some of the phonemes are definitely wrong because I used a variety of sources and some disagreed on which phonemes where in which languages, as well as my own failure to completely understand which phonemes lined up where but overall it should be pretty accurate.
I hope this helps someone. The IPA chart I used was made by u/phannatik, I only inserted the colors to show frequency.
Anyone noticing that the amount of 5* is starting to outnumber that 4*? So far the only new 4 star was Diona and Xinyan. At the same time, Childe and Zhongli came out so that basically cancel each other out. Recently we got Albedo and Ganyu so that 2 more 5* in the pool. Base on speculation, Xiao and Hu Tao is next and they are also 5*. Do you guys think they are releasing 4* too slow? Is that a good thing or bad thing? Lemme know what you think
P.S. Yes, I know we started the game with a lotta 4* so it will be awhile before 5* outnumber the 4* however that this rate, they will.
