I’d say two or three times a week I misplace my glasses somewhere in my room (but I always know where my phone is because, like you, I’m addicted to it). So when I can’t see, I grab my phone, open up the camera app and use that as a quick way to bring everything in focus. Works like a charm.
1.) COVID vaccine rollout has started, and we will be able to attend movies soon. The Biden Administration (sorry for getting political, just pls keep reading) has an ambitious plan (100 million vaccines in 100 days or whatever the fuck) and this pandemic is almost over. I’d give it until the end of the year.
3.) Consumers have a sentimental connection to movies. They will come back. People are starved for the outside world and will come out in massive hordes to watch movies. People will go out and see movies, take their kids, go on dates, etc. Nothing can replicate the experience of a giant screen and surround audio.
4.) This major influx of blue balled movie goers will cause a major boost in 2021. Then we will see a continuation of the year over year growth we have been seeing since 2012.
5.) The AMC business model is working. The revenue has steadily increased since 2012 year over year. In 2012, they made $811 million. In 2019, they made $5.47 billion. There has been a steady rise. THEY ARE NOT IN DECLINE.
6.) I understand they have many loans, but it is something that can be paid off in a few years with the help of their parent company, Wanda Entertainment, and increased profits in 2021.
7.) They will not go bankrupt. WANDA entertainment, a Chinese company owns the plurality share (20%) and will bail them out if it is necessary. They bought for $2.6 billion in 2012, and have seen a ROI, scoring $2.7 billion in 2013, the year immediately after their purchase. AMC is too good of an asset for Wanda to lose them. Also, AMC can take advantage of new stimulus and other government assistance programs.
8.) It’s extremely cheap right now because everybody is shorting, and there’s a pandemic. Corona is only temporary. Everybody thought GameStop was going to go under, until we showed them. Remember t... keep reading on reddit ➡
>Draymond Green: "I view screens like I view assists. When I nail a guy on a screen and Steph hits the 3,
I probably feel better than Steph does hitting the 3."
[Shiller] >Draymond on Wiseman: "He's probably faster than all of us. From baseline to baseline, I'm not sure if any of us can keep up with him. I know he can keep up running wise. But to play that kind of pace, it takes some getting used to ... I'm 100 percent sure he will get there."
Its annoying! If you live in a place where you have to scrape ice off your windshield, you probably know the pain of having to take your gloves off to control the climate controls. I don't give a fuck if my center stack is a car designers wet dream, I just want to be able to control my vehicle in the best possible way.
Buttons and dials worked. I shouldn't have to go into a sub menu and tap a screen a bunch to control the air in the climate vents. Less used buttons like speaker adjustments can be controlled a submenu, but don't put climate controls in the touch screen.
Grammar. Also in response to a few things. I know touch screen compatible gloves exist, but they don't work as well as your bare hand. And if the glove isn't perfectly fit or is a little loose, it will not work as well. The touch screen compatible gloves make navigating the menus cumbersome because they are gloves and it makes hitting the small buttons difficult. Also volume and channel should also have their own dials as well.
The touch screens are a hazard. Anything that requires more driver attention to use is inherently more dangerous- and touch screens take more driver attention. They also add steps to making something function, that should be discouraged.
Car reviewers should start trying to operate these vehicles with gloves on. Too much emphasis is placed on the appearance of the cabin, but that encourages this behavior of removing buttons and dials. I hope to see more emphasis being placed on every day functionality.
I am very fortunate to have gotten an offer for ~140k (mostly all base, as is customary in Chicago), while I was just at ~90k TC (for those of you who are curious, I am a 2019 grad and have been at the same company since then) - and I did not do any big LeetCode grind or anything like that (maybe 20 LeetCode easies and mediums total in a one month period). However, one tactic I found really useful, was managing recruiter phone screens strategically.
Just thought I would share my exper... keep reading on reddit ➡
It's been pointed out time and time again, it's impossible to fairly report someone for not playing their selected role at game start.
Is the idea behind the current report system to report any Zeus/WR/Hoodwink/Silencer etc position 4 on the off chance that they'll play like an underfarmed core? Doesn't seem right.
It also doesn't seem right that the Zeus who rushes Aghanim's and then queues up refresher as Pos 4 isn't punished for ruining a game.
Overwatch doesn't show roles picked either, so for all the evaluater knows Zeus was mid and just had a bad game.
Valve if you're going to have Role Queue, make sure to bloody support it fully instead of half-arsing it and calling it a day, the fixes are simple, all it takes is about 5 minutes of cognitive activity to reach it.
