2023.06.07 14:02 mbow123 Questions I have after finishing the series.
I finished this series Saturday. I have never loved a fantasy series so much. I think this topped Zodiac Academy for me and that has been my top series for 2 years. I am already starting to reread because I love it so much. But I do have a few questions that have been sitting with me for a few days now.
- First and foremost: WHAT DID LORCAN DO!? (I will never be able to forgive this one. 😂)
- I read Assassin’a blade first, but can someone explain why reading it after Heir of Fire? Why it’s so impactful? Is it because of the healing in HOF or because of preparation for Queen of Shadows?
- I just started rereading Throne of Glass, why did Chaol as a character take such a turn after the first 2 books? I forgot how much I liked him at the beginning, but QOS Chaol. Why? Was it so that people would accept Rowan?
- Normally I can see deaths as being impactful in a series and make sense. Fenrys’s twin was so traumatizing, but I felt made an impact. But why Gabriel? I get that he was sacrificing himself for Adeion, but I also feel like his death wasn’t necessary? Help me understand if I’m wrong, but I feel like they could’ve shut that gate without him dying.
- Where the heck did Vaughn go?
- Because Aelin hasn’t become a full immortal fae yet (I forget what the transition is caused), does that mean she may still regain some of her power that was lost at the end of KOA? Rowan always talked about her continuing to grow her power in the books. I was wondering if any of that magic will still grow with her, or if she’s now forever stuck with what she has.
- Somewhat unrelated to TOG. Can someone convince me to get into ACOTAR? A long time ago I started it and got halfway through ACOMAF and stopped. I wanted to retry after the amazingness that is TOG, but I’m still having trouble getting into the story. Is there any parallels to TOG that could help me be more interested in ACOTAR? I just have a hard time connecting to the inner circle of ACOTAR. Maybe I am not giving them enough chance, but it was so easy for me to love all TOG characters.
I am sure I am missing some of my questions and I’m sorry if these have been answered many times before. I’m newer here :). If you finished my long post thank you lol. I talk too much.

2023.06.07 14:01 EdMarCarSe "Great Anti-Imperialist Revolutionary Cause of Asian, African and Latin American Peoples Is Invincible", The Treatise published on the cccasion of the first anniversary of the death of Che Guevara in battle in the Eighth Issue of Tricontinental - by Kim Il Sung, October 8 of 1968.
It is nearly a year now since Comrade Ernesto Che Guevara, an indomitable revolutionary fighter and a true internationalist champion bom of the Latin American people, died a heroic death on the battlefield of Bolivia. The Korean people, together with the revolutionary peoples throughout the world, are commemorating the first anniversary of the passing away of Comrade Che Guevara, with a burning hatred for the enemy and in deep grief.
Che Guevara took the path of the sacred struggle to bring freedom and liberation to the peoples, holding aloft the banner of anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle early in his youthhood, and devoted his whole life to the revolutionary cause of the oppressed peoples.
Over a long period up to now since the curtain rose upon the prelude to the bloodstained history of modern bourgeoisie, in which the exploitation camouflaged by medieval religious and political illusions was replaced by a naked, shameless, direct and cruel one and man's dignity turned into an exchange value, numerous Communists and revolutionary fighters on the globe have shed their blood and laid down their lives in the midst of the revolutionary tempest to sweep away all that is obsolete and corrupt and reorganize the whole structure of society in a revolutionary way, to overthrow the upper strata of that cursed old society and prepare the cradle of free and happy, new society. Che Guevara dedicated his precious life to this sacred struggle and thus became an honourable member of the ranks of world revolutionary martyrs.
Che Guevara was an indefatigable revolutionary who was tireless in struggle and a true internationalist champion who was completely free from narrow nationalist sentiments. Throughout his life he showed a fine example of a steadfast revolutionary fighter and real internationalist.
Along with the Cuban revolutionaries led by Comrade Fidel Castro, Che Guevara unfolded a heroic armed struggle, thereby contributing greatly to crushing U.S. imperialism and the dictatorial regime of Batista, its lackey, and attaining the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. In 1965 Che Guevara, burning with revolutionary zeal, left the triumphant land of Cuba to move the arena of his struggle to a new outpost where manifold difficulties and stern trials awaited him. Everywhere he went in Latin America, he organized and mobilized the masses of the people to armed struggles against U.S. imperialism and its minions and fought bravely to the last moment of his life in the forefront.
The revolutionary activities of Che Guevara made a tremendous contribution to further consolidating the triumph of the Cuban Revolution and stepping up the advancement of the Latin American revolution as a whole.
The triumph of the Cuban Revolution is the first victory of the socialist revolution in Latin America and a continuation of the Great October Revolution in Latin America. With the Cuban Revolution emerging victorious, the Red banner of socialism now flies high over Latin America which was regarded as a hereditary estate of U.S. imperialism only until recently, and the socialist camp has extended to the Western Hemisphere and grown in strength a great deal. Today the Republic of Cuba which marches on firmly in the forefront of the Latin American revolution is the lighthouse of hope for the fighting Latin American peoples and throws the rays of victory on the road of their struggle. The triumph of the Cuban Revolution shook the colonial system of the U.S. imperialists to its very foundation in the Western Hemisphere and has thrown the whole Latin America into a revolutionary tempest, forcefully arousing the peoples in this area to the sacred struggle for independence and freedom. The triumph of the Cuban Revolution signified, indeed, the beginning of the disintegration of the U.S. imperialist system of colonial rule in Latin America, the stern judgment on U.S. imperialism which had exploited and oppressed the peoples in this area for a long period and its condemnation to ruin.
Consolidation of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution is not only an important problem which decides the life and death, the rise and fall of the Cuban people but also a key problem which sways the destinies of the general development of the Latin American revolution.
Revolution begins with brilliant successes in one country but undergoes a considerable period of painful throes. The countries whose proletariat has grasped power in the encirclement of international capitalism are not free from the danger of imperialist aggression and restoration of capitalism during the entire historical period of revolutionary transition from capitalism to socialism. The overthrown exploiting classes always attempt to recover their lost positions and foreign imperialists incessantly engage in armed invasion and intrigues and manoeuvres for political and ideological subversion.
The U.S. imperialists and the reactionaries of Latin America deeply hate and fear the very existence of the Republic of Cuba and are manoeuvring stubbornly and maliciously to stifle it. They are working hard to get rid of the Cuban Revolution so as to drive out the "spectre" of Communism haunting the Western Hemisphere and check the liberation struggle of the peoples which envelops Latin America like a prairie fire. While scheming to strangle Cuba by directly mobilizing then- armed forces, the U.S. imperialists are instigating the reactionary Latin American regimes of dictatorship under their domination and subjugation to bring political and economic pressure to bear upon Cuba in order to suffocate her with the policy of blockade.
For the attainment of the ultimate victory of the revolution, the peoples who have gained power in the encirclement of international capital, while reinforcing their own internal forces in every way, should receive solid support from other detachments of the world socialist revolution and should receive broad international assistance from the working classes of all lands and the oppressed peoples of the whole world. In other words, revolutions should take place consecutively in the majority of countries of the world, in several adjacent countries at the least, to replace imperialist encirclement with socialist encirclement, the barriers of imperialism that surround a socialist country should be torn down to open the path of turning the dictatorship of the proletariat into a world-wide system and an end should be put to the isolation of the socialist fortress of one country in the encirclement to form the strong ties of militant solidarity of the international working classes and the oppressed peoples of the world. Only then will it be possible to prevent completely armed intervention by the imperialists and their attempt to restore capitalism, and say that the ultimate victory of socialism has been secured.
As the forces of capital are international, so the liberation struggle of the peoples is an international movement. The revolutionary movements in individual countries are national movements, and constitute part of the world revolution at the same time. The revolutionary struggles of the peoples in all countries have the relationship of supporting and complementing each other and join together in one stream of world revolution. The revolution which has emerged victorious should assist the revolutions of those countries which are not yet triumphant with its experiences and examples and render active support to the liberation struggle of the world's peoples with its political, economic and military power, while the peoples in the countries which have not yet won the revolutions should struggle more actively to defend the victorious revolutions of other countries against the imperialist policy of strangulation and hasten victory for their own revolutions. This is the law of the development of the world revolutionary movement and the excellent tradition already formed in the course of the people's liberation struggle.
The Cuban Revolution is an organic part of the world revolution and, particularly, constitutes the decisive link in the chain of the revolution in Latin America. To defend the Cuban Revolution and to consolidate and follow up its victories is not only the duty of the Cuban people but also the internationalist obligation of the oppressed peoples of Latin America and all the revolutionary peoples of the world. Just as the defence of the gains of the October Revolution in Russia which made the first breach in the world capitalist system was an important question decisive of the fate of the development of the world revolution, so the defence of the gains of the Cuban Revolution which made the first breach in the colonial system of U.S. imperialism in Latin America is an important question decisive of the fate of the Latin American revolution.
It is of great importance for the defence of the Cuban Revolution to advance the revolutionary movement in those Latin American countries neighbouring on Cuba. If the fierce flames of revolution flare up in many countries of Latin America where U.S. imperialism sets foot, the force of U.S. imperialism will be dispersed and sapped as much and the attempts of the U.S. imperialists and their lackeys to strangle Cuba by concentrated force will inevitably fall through. Further, if the revolution emerges victorious in some other Latin American countries, Cuba will get out of the encircling ring of imperialism with which she is confronted on all sides, there will be opened up a favourable phase in the revolutions of Cuba and Latin America, and the world revolution will be stepped up still more.
For a revolution to take place, the subjective and objective situation should be created for it. The revolution in each country should be carried out to suit the specific realities, in which the objective revolutionary situation is created. This, however, by no means signifies that the revolution can develop or ripen of itself. The revolution can always be advanced and brought to maturity only through an active and hard struggle of the revolutionaries. If an active struggle is neglected, only waiting for a favourable situation to arise by reason of the arduousness of the revolution, revolutionary forces cannot be fostered. Revolutionary forces cannot be prepared spontaneously without any struggle, they can be fostered and strengthened only through a hard struggle. If preparations are not made to meet the decisive hour of the revolution by preserving the revolutionary forces against the enemy's suppression and, at the same time, constantly accumulating and building them up through a positive struggle, it will be impossible to win victory in the revolution even when the objective situation has been created. To turn away from the revolution on the pretext of avoiding sacrifices is in fact tantamount to forcing the people to remain in lifelong slavery to capital, forcing them to tolerate for ever the cruel exploitation and oppression, unbearable maltreatment and humiliation, enormous sufferings and sacrifices. In general the acute pain experienced at a revolutionary turning-point is always much easier to endure than the chronic pain caused by the ulcers of old society. The social revolution cannot be achieved as easily as proceeding along a royal road in full daylight, nor can it progress as smoothly as a boat sailing before the wind. On the path of revolution, there may be rough thorny bushes and turns and twists, and there may be temporary setbacks and partial sacrifices. To flinch before difficulties and to hesitate in the revolution for fear of sacrifices is not the attitude befitting a revolutionary.
It is the task for the revolutionaries of each country to lay down a scientifically-motivated, careful way of struggle on the basis of a correct assessment of the internal and external situation and a proper calculation of the balance of forces between friend and foe, accumulate and build up the revolutionary forces by rearing the nuclear elements and awakening the masses of the people in the trying crucible of the revolution, unfolding an active struggle and yet going around the snags and avoiding unnecessary sacrifices at ordinary times, and make full preparations to meet the great revolutionary event. And once the revolutionary situation is created, they should not miss the opportunity to rise without delay in a showdown to shatter the reactionary regime.
The forms and methods of revolutionary struggle, too, are determined not by the wishes of individuals, but on all accounts by the subjective and objective situation created and the resistance of the reactionary ruling classes. The revolutionaries should stand prepared for all forms of struggle, and should effectively advance the revolutionary movement by properly combining various forms and methods of struggle such as political and economic struggles, violent and nonviolent struggles, legal and illegal struggles.
Counter-revolutionary violence is an indispensable means of rule for all exploiting classes. Human history not yet knows an instance of any ruling class submissively turning over its supremacy, or an instance of any reactionary class meekly waiving its power without resorting to counter-revolutionary violence. In particular, the imperialists cling ever more desperately to violent means to maintain their rule as they approach nearer to their doom. The imperialists, while suppressing the peoples of their own countries, check all the revolutionary advance of the oppressed nations in a sanguinary way with their military forces for aggression and plunder against other countries.
In these conditions, the liberation struggle of the oppressed peoples cannot emerge victorious without using revolutionary violence to crush foreign imperialists and overthrow the reactionary dictatorial machinery of the exploiting classes at home that work hand in glove with them. It is imperative to meet violence with violence and crush counter-revolutionary armed forces with revolutionary armed forces. The revolutionary flames now raging furiously in Latin America are the natural outcome of the revolutionary situation created in this area.
The absolute majority of the Latin American countries have been placed under the complete domination and bondage of U.S. imperialism. Pro-U.S. dictatorships have been established in many Latin American countries and the economy of these countries has been turned completely into an appendage to the U.S. monopolies. The U.S. imperialists' policy of aggression and plunder towards Latin America constitutes the major fetters impeding social progress in this area, and has plunged its peoples in unbearable mishaps and distress. The U.S. imperialists and the pro-U.S. dictatorships in Latin America extensively set up various repressive apparatuses including the army and police and suppress all forms of revolutionary advance of the people in a most brutal way.
It is obvious that unless the ill-clad and hungry, oppressed and humiliated people in Latin America bravely rise in arms in the struggle against the oppressors, they cannot attain freedom and liberation.
It is quite justifiable and admirable that under the banner of proletarian internationalism, under the banner of anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle, Che Guevara, together with Latin American revolutionaries, unfolded an active, heroic revolutionary struggle in various Latin American countries with arms in his hands in defiance of sacrifice in order to defend the Cuban Revolution and hasten the day of liberation for the oppressed peoples in this area. The revolutionary peoples of the whole world express deep sympathy with the brave act of Che Guevara who waged a heroic armed struggle together with Latin American revolutionaries. The brilliant example of Che Guevara is a paragon not only for the Latin American peoples in their revolutionary struggle but for the Asian and African peoples in their liberation struggle, and inspires them to heroic exploits.
Che .Guevara is not with us now. But the blood he shed will never be wasted. His name and the everlasting revolutionary exploits he performed will go down for ever in the history of liberation of mankind and his lofty revolutionary spirit will be immortal. There will appear thousands of, tens of thousands of Che Guevaras on the scene of decisive battle in the revolutionary struggle in Asia, Africa and Latin America, and the revolutionary cause which he left unaccomplished will surely be achieved by the struggle of the Latin American revolutionaries and the revolutionary peoples the world over.
Today Asia, Africa and Latin America have become the most fierce anti-imperialist front. Imperialism has met with the strong resistance of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples and suffered the heaviest blows from them. Nevertheless, imperialism is desperately trying to maintain its old footing and regain its lost positions in those areas.
The cause of liberation of the peoples in Asia, Africa and Latin America has not been completed. So long as imperialism exists on the globe and oppresses and plunders the people, the people cannot leave off the anti-imperialist struggle even a moment. The struggle must continue till all shades of colonialism are wiped off the face of the earth once and for all, till all the oppressed and humiliated nations build their independent states and achieve social progress and national- prosperity.
Imperialism will never give up its rule over colonial and dependent countries before it is kicked out. It is in the nature of imperialism to perpetrate aggression and plunder. If there ever is imperialism which is not aggressive, it is no longer imperialism. Imperialism will not change its aggressive nature before it dies. That is why one should dispel all illusions about imperialism and fight it out. Only when a. principled stand is maintained against imperialism and a staunch anti-imperialist struggle intensified, can the oppressed nations win freedom and independence and the liberated peoples check imperialist aggression, consolidate national independence and achieve prosperity for their countries and nations.
U.S. imperialism is the most barbarous and most heinous imperialism of modern times, and it is the chieftain of world imperialism. It is not the Asian and Latin American countries or the African countries alone that have their sovereignty and territories infringed upon by U.S. imperialism or are under the menace of U.S. imperialist aggression. There is no place on the earth to which U.S. imperialism has not stretched out its tentacles of aggression, and where U.S. imperialism sets foot the people always shed blood. The U.S. imperialists pursue the invariable aim to put the whole world under their control. It is to realize this aim that the U.S. imperialists incessantly perpetrate armed invasion and subversive activities against the socialist and newly-independent countries, and brutally suppress the liberation struggle of the peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America. This wild aggressive design of U.S. imperialism must be frustrated decisively. It is clear that world peace cannot be safeguarded, nor can national liberation and independence or the victory of democracy and socialism be achieved, apart from the struggle against U.S. imperialism. To fight U.S. imperialism is the inescapable common duty and the first and foremost revolutionary task for all the peoples of the world.
For the successful defeat of U.S. imperialism, it is necessary to penetrate into its world strategy thoroughly.
The basic strategy of U.S. imperialism for world aggression at the present stage is to destroy by force of arms the small and divided revolutionary socialist countries and newly- independent countries one by one, while refraining from worsening its relations with big powers and shunning confrontation with them as far as possible and to intensify ideological and political offensive against, and subvert from within, those countries which are weak ideologically and not willing to make revolution but spread illusion about imperialism among the people clamouring only for unprincipled coexistence with imperialism, and desire to live on good terms with imperialism.
On the basis of this world strategy, the U.S. imperialists are increasing their armaments extensively and further reinforcing their military bases and aggressive military alliances to attack the socialist and the progressive countries. The U.S. imperialists have openly embarked on "local war" and "special war" in Viet Nam and some other places, while preparing total war and nuclear war on a large scale.
Simultaneously with this, the U.S. imperialists resort to a new form of cold war to encourage "liberalization" and "democratic development" in certain countries, while running wild to bribe and make a cat's-paw of the cowards within the ranks of the working-class movement who are afraid of revolution. They clamour for the "most favoured nation" treatment and the expansion of the "East-West contact and interchange" and, with this as a means, seek to infiltrate their reactionary ideology and culture to degrade the peoples ideologically, hamper economic development and thus undermine those countries from within. The imperialists are carrying out sabotage and subversive intrigues to tear the newly- independent states away from the anti-imperialist front one by one. While resorting to force overtly, they penetrate into the newly-independent countries with "aid" as a bait and meddle in their internal affairs. The U.S. imperialists whip together the right-wing reactionaries and pit them against the progressive forces, and seek to sway certain newly-independent countries to the road of counter-revolution.
Namely, wielding an olive branch in one hand and arrows in the other, the U.S. imperialists manoeuvre to swallow up the revolutionary countries one by one through armed aggression and subvert the ideologically weak countries through ideological and cultural aggression, combining nuclear blackmail with "peaceful penetration" and repression with appeasement and deception.
The peoples of the whole world should maintain sharpest vigilance against such intrigues and manoeuvres by U.S. imperialism and should be fully prepared to counter enemy's possible aggression of all forms.
In order to develop the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle vigorously, it is important to cement to the maximum the militant unity of all areas, all countries, all parties, all people and all forces opposing imperialism.
The revolutionary struggles of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples go on closely linked with each other for the community of their desires and aspirations. When Latin America groans under imperialist yoke, the Asian and African peoples cannot live in peace and when U.S. imperialism collapses in the Asian and African areas, a favourable phase will be created for the national-liberation movement of the Latin American peoples, too. The militant unity and close ties of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples will multiply the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. revolutionary forces several times, scores of times and will become an invincible force which can frustrate successfully the aggression of the imperialists and the united front of international reaction. Therefore, the peoples in all regions where U.S. imperialism is entrenched should pool their strength and strike it hard.
In Asia, Africa and Latin America there are socialist and neutral countries, and big and small countries. All these countries except the puppet regimes of the imperialists and their satellite states constitute anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. forces. Despite the differences of state socio-political systems, political views and religious beliefs, the peoples of the countries in these areas, as the oppressed nations who were suppressed and exploited by the imperialists and colonialists, have the common goal and aspiration to achieve national independence and national prosperity against imperialism and old and new colonialism. The differences of state socio-political systems, political views or religious beliefs can by no means be an obstacle in the way of joint struggle against U.S. imperialism. All countries should form an anti-imperialist united front and take anti-U.S. joint action to crush the common enemy and attain the common goal.
True, there may be various categories of people among those who oppose imperialism. Some may be active against imperialism, others may vacillate in the anti-imperialist struggle, and still others may join in the anti-imperialist struggle reluctantly under the pressure from their own people and the peoples of the world. But, whatever their motives, it is necessary to enlist all these forces except the henchmen of imperialism in the anti-U.S. joint struggle. If more forces, though inconsistent and unsteady, are drawn into the anti-U.S. joint struggle to isolate U.S. imperialism to the largest possible extent and deal blows to it by joint action, that will be a good thing and by no means a bad thing. Those who avoid the anti-imperialist struggle should be induced to turn out in the struggle against imperialism and those who are passive encouraged to be positive in the anti-imperialist struggle. To split the anti-U.S. united front or reject the anti-U.S. joint action will only bring a serious consequence of weakening the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle.
To fight down U.S. imperialism, all countries, big and small, should strike blows at U.S. imperialism. Particularly important here is that small countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America should give up flunkeyism tended to rely on big powers and take an active part in the anti-U.S. struggle. It is wrong to think that U.S. imperialism cannot be beaten down unless big countries fight it. It would be better certainly if big countries join small countries in fighting against U.S. imperialism. That is why small countries should endeavour to unite with big countries. But, this is by no means to say that no country, unless it is big, can fight and defeat U.S. imperialism. It is too obvious that one cannot make revolution if he depends on big countries and sits idle and that others cannot make revolution for him. Even small countries can defeat big enemy, once they establish Juche, unite the masses of the people and valiantly rise in battle despite sacrifice. This is a very plain truth of our times which has been borne out by actual life.
The experience of the Korean war proved this truth, and the triumph of the Cuban Revolution and the heroic war of resistance of the Vietnamese people against U.S. imperialism and for national salvation have proved this truth.
Moreover, when many countries, though small, pool their strength to fight imperialism, the peoples will be able to beat the enemy however strong he may be, with a decisively overwhelming force. The peoples of the countries making revolution should join efforts to tear left and right arms from U.S, imperialism, tear off its left and right legs and behead it eventually everywhere it stretches out its crooked hands of aggression. The U.S. imperialists are bluffing now, but when the revolutionary peoples of the world join in mutilating them, the U.S. imperialists will become impotent and bite the dust in the end. We small nations should unite and counter the strategy of U.S. imperialism to swallow us up one by one, each chopping off its head and limbs. Such, it can be said, is the strategy of struggle for small countries to defeat U.S. imperialism.
The Korean people have fought against the occupation of South Korea by the U.S. imperialists and for the unification of the country for more than 20 years. The Korean Revolution is part of the international revolutionary movement, and the revolutionary/struggle of the Korean people is developing amid the joint struggle of the peoples of the whole world for peace and democracy, for national independence and socialism. The Korean people are fighting to accomplish their cause of national liberation and, at the same time, are doing everything in their power to accelerate the advancement of the international revolutionary movement as a whole. Our people unite with all forces opposing U.S. imperialism and consistently support the peoples of all the countries in their struggle against U.S. imperialism. We regard it as an important factor in bringing victory to the Korean Revolution.
Imperialism is a moribund force whose days are numbered, whereas the liberation struggle of the peoples is a new force which aspires for the progress of mankind. There may be uncountable difficulties and obstacles and various turns and twists on the way of the liberation struggle of the peoples, but it is the inevitable law of the development of history that imperialism is doomed to ruin and the liberation struggle of the peoples is sure to be crowned with victory. Though the imperialists headed by U.S. imperialism are running amuck in an attempt to check the surging liberation struggle of the peoples, it is nothing but the death-bed tremor of those who are condemned to destruction. The more frenziedly the U.S. imperialists act, the more difficult their position becomes. U.S. imperialism is going downhill and confronted with the fate of a setting sun. The U.S. imperialists will definitely be forced out of Asia, Africa and Latin America by the liberation struggle of the peoples. The great anti-imperialist revolutionary cause of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples is invincible.

2023.06.07 14:01 dreftzg [Daily News] Are These New Seiko Chronos Ugly Or Not?, Breguet Has Two New Military Chronographs, French Watchmaker Teams Up With French Carmaker For French Race and Dan Henry Is Back With New Colors And Same Price
Welcome back, it's Wednesday and I'll just come out and say it - that Seiko is ugly... Change my mind.
What's new 1/ Seiko Adds Four Completely New Chronographs To The Prospex Collection And Four Limited Editions To The Presage Craftsmanship Series
In 1999 Seiko launched a limited edition they called the Sportura Kinetic Chronograph
. It was a funky watch that used four subdials to display the time and chronograph functions. Just looking at it and you feel the angst of the end of the millennium and the cheesy futurism (not to be confused with neo futurism in architecture led by Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid and Santiago Calatrava) that permeated industrial design of the time - from Oakley glasses to Jnco jeans. There’s no easy way to say this, but it’s an ugly watch. I can appreciate the experiment. But come on.
However, Seiko believes that the four dial layout of the Kinetic was pleasing to the eye. That’s why they decided to recreate it in four new solar chronographs that they are adding to the Prospex collection, marking the company’s association with the World Athletics Championships to be held in Budapest, Hungary, in August. Officially called the Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Solar Chronograph, all four watches sport a new movement with the Seiko Caliber 8A50, a 1/100-second chronograph with a +/- 15-seconds per month precision rating.
The Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Solar Chronograph watch is 42mm-wide, 12.9mm-thick, and its lug-to-lug distance is 48.3mm. All four watches have the same case and bracelet design but in different executions and ever-so-slightly different prices and naming schemes. I could go on into detail about the dials and colors, but it’s all just a bit confusing. You can hop on over here if you would like to know more
Two of the models will be limited edition of 4,000 each and two will be regular production models. The Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Solar Chronograph watch prices range from 890 Euros to 970 Euros, and all four versions will be available from July 2023. Regular readers of the newsletter will know I keep things very chipper here and don’t pass judgement. But these new Seiko’s are just baffling to me. They look like those Diesel watches you buy at the mall. Am I wrong?
Thankfully, Seiko has another announcement for today. While they have shown these watches previously, they are now starting to sell these stunning Presage Craftsmanship Series watches
. Marking the 110th anniversary of its first wristwatch, the Laurel, Seiko is putting out two pairs of these limited edition pieces, with each featuring a dial made by a dedicated artisan or craft workshop through a traditional Japanese decorative technique — enamel, urushi lacquer, Arita porcelain, and shippō enamel. All four models boast a new case shape, a fresh dial aesthetic, and an in-house automatic movement. And they are now hitting the market.
And despite Seiko’s price increases for recent releases, these new editions seem to align with their predecessors. The white enamel SPB393 retails for €1,650, the brown urushi SPB395 for €2,000, the ivory Arita porcelain SPB397 for €2,000, and the blue shippō enamel SPB399 for €2,250. 2/ Breguet Gives Us Two Redesigned Variations Of The Classic Chronograph With The Type XX And Type 20
Just the other day I linked to a great article on Type 20
, the references issued by the French military in the 1950s. There were many brands who stepped up to produce these Type 20 watches, but the reference has stuck around to be synonymous with one brand in particular - Breguet. They have been making the Type 20 for years now, with occasional updates, but now Breguet is unveiling the new Type XX and Type 20 – a civilian and military-inspired take on the classic design - which is the biggest change to the line.
Despite at first glance looking like it’s two of the same watches with different dials, the Type 20 and Type XX are actually different watches. Both watches come in the same steel case that measures 42mm wide and 14.1mm thick with bidirectional steel bezels and matching lume pips. But this is pretty much where the similarities stop. The Type 20 has a military inspired dial with mint green lume and syringe hands, while the Type XX is a civilian version with a creamy yellow lume and alpha hands.
The Type 20 and Type XX both have a new self-winding movement, the Calibre 728 for the civilian version and Calibre 7281 for the military version. Each movement has a column wheel, vertical clutch, 5Hz frequency, and flyback functionality with 60 hours of power reserve, plus an inverted in-line lever escapement with a flat silicon balance spring for increased durability, longevity, and magnetic resistance.
Why two different calibers? The difference lies in dial layout and how useful it would be in military or civilian applications. On the military version, you only have two registers, with a 30-minute totalizer at three o'clock, now larger than the 60-second totalizer at nine o'clock. Meanwhile, the civilian version has a 15-minute totalizer at three o'clock, a 12-hour totalizer at six o'clock, and running seconds at nine o'clock.
This is not a cheap watch. It will run you $18,000. But it might just be one of the best vintage revivals we have seen in a year full of vintage revivals. 3/ French Watchmaker Yema Teams Up With Alpine French Racing Team To Mark The Most French Race With Five New Watches
One of the most legendary races in the world starts on Saturday and ends on Sunday. Yes, it’s the 24 hours of Le Mans. The race is, of course, one of the most recognisable french things, alongside the croissant and hating tourists. You know what else is very french? Alpine, the legendary car manufacturer that gained it’s fame with the quirky A110 and is currently doing really well (under Renault ownership) with its successor, also called the A110. Alpine will be present at the 24h of Le Mans With their Endurance Team. If only there was a watchmaker that could join in, making it a French hat trick. There is. It’s Yema. Yema has made five new watches to mark Alpine’s stint at Le Mans - the Yema Rallygraf A470 Limited Edition and four Rallygraf Alpine Endurance Team Automatic models of which one is mechanical while the other three are powered by the Seiko VK64 meca-quartz movement.
The Yema Rallygraf A470 Limited Edition takes all the right cues from 70s racing chronographs. The stainless steel case is 39mm wide and 12mm thick without the double-domed sapphire crystal. The solid caseback shows the Alpine Endurance Team logo and the limitation of the watch. The dial is finished in a gradient-blue colour, Alpine’s signature color, with a vintage dashboard-inspired bicompax layout and Alpine’s logo on the chronograph seconds hand. Inside the watch is the Valjoux 7753 and the watch comes on an appropriate black leather rally strap with a steel pin buckle. This watch will be limited to 470 pieces and can be pre-ordered for a price of USD 2,190 with delivery expected in September 2023.
This runs at a frequency of 28,800vph and delivers 48 hours of power reserve. The watch comes on a black leather rally strap with a steel pin buckle. Limited to 470 pieces, tying in with the car, it can be pre-ordered for a price of EUR 2,190 with delivery expected in September 2023
Then there’s the meca-quartz variants. They take the same case as the Rallygraf and give it three variations - white dial with a blue outside minute track
, a cream dial with a black outside minute track
or a black dial with a cream outside minute track
. All of these are also available for preorder now for EUR 399 and will be delivered in September 2023.
Yema also announced a second mechanical watch made in collaboration with Alpine, the Rallygraf Alpine Endurance Team Automatic. This will officially be unveiled this coming Saturday at the Circuit de la Sarthe, during the racing weekend of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Although we don’t know all the details at this moment, we can see it’s made of stainless steel
, comes on a multi-link bracelet or black leather strap and has a black dial. The bidirectional rotating bezel can be used to calculate speeds, in combination with the inner ‘Temps Ecoule’ flange in white and blue. It is powered by the in-house Calibre YEMA2000 and will cost USD 990. 4/ The Dan Henry 1970 44mm is back with new colours and the same, affordable price
You might know Dan Hendy as the microbrand that has been pumping out vintage inspired watches since 2016. What you might not know is that they made their name with the Dan Henry 1970 44mm Automatic Diver, the first of their watches to feature an automatic movement. While it might not seem like a big deal, it was for Dan Hanry and the shoppers in the sub $500 range. While Dan Henry serviced it’s customers by providing good value for money with quartz movements, the 1970 44mm Automatic Diver was the first time they offered a mechanical movement at such an affordable price. It sold out instantly and now, four years later, they are back with a limited edition of 1970 pieces.
It’s a very big watch. Very big. The heavy stainless steel super compressor style case measures 44mm in diameter and is 14.8mm thick with a 50.5mm lug-to-lug length. Despite these large dimensions, and with all other manufacturers fighting to go smaller, people still love this watch. They love it enough for it to go for over retail on the secondary market, which is not common for a watch in this pricepoint. Both of the crowns, one for rotating the inner-bezel and one for adjusting the time, screw into the case, giving it 200m water resistance.
The dials get a contrasting pop of color on the outskirts. There’s the black and orange, as well as the black and off-white with a black case and blue with white color combinations. Each version comes with its own colour-matching FKM rubber tropic strap. To keep the price low, the watches are powered by the Seiko NH35. Not the best movement in the world, but it gets the job done for an exceptionally low price.
The new Dan Henry 1970 44mm Automatic Diver is limited to 1,970 pieces, available from Dan Henry and costs $310
. 5/ Bamford Teams Up With Land Rover For The LR002 Limited Edition
Somehere near the end of last year, Land Rover designed their first watch. They called it the LR001 and they turned to Bamford to put the watch into production. It was a great looking field watch made of titanium and all in shades of grey, with a decent price and limited to 100 pieces so they all sold out very fast. Now, Bamford London and Land Rover are bringing it back with an updated, equally limited, version in all black called the LR002.
The LR002 is pretty much the same watch as the LR001, except for the color. While not a fan of black watches, this isn’t a bad thing, as it gives you a chance to buy the sold out Land Rover watch. What is bad is the price, but more on that later. The case measures 40mm wide and 13.25mm thick, and is made out of DLC coated titanium. It has a shape that resembles a field watch but much more modern and has fixed bars. From photos, due to the thick case and fixed bars, this watch looks to wear much larger than it actually is.
The dial seems to be much more interesting than the case. It has a sandwich construction with the top part having a matte black surface and the underside being filled with white lume. And by alternating circular and oblong cutouts, there’s a dynamic look to the dial. Inside the watch is the same movement as in the LR001, the Selita SW200-1B, and it’s delivered on a leather NATO-style bracelet.
The LR002 will have a run of just 100 pieces that are exclusively sold through Hodinkee. At the time of writing there are still pieces available for sale at a price of $1,700. And that’s the biggest issue. The LR001 sold for about $1,300 and the only difference between the two watches is the DLC coating. Is it worth the price difference? 6/ The Casio A120 Is The Best Pairing For Stranger Things, But Do We Need It?
The immense popularity of Stranger Thing undoubtedly lies in it’s 80s nostalgia that reminded us all of our childhoods. While playing to our good memories, it also roped in new generations by picking the best the decade had to offer and presenting it as something cool. That’s why you have a bunch of kids out there listening to Kate Bush and Metallica, while wearing Casio watches and buying VHS tapes. So it only makes perfect sense that Casio would team up with Stranger Things for a limited edition watch, and what better reference to do it with then the A120. This is the Casio x Stranger Things A120WEST-1A.
The watch is a classic Casio A120, with a 33.5mm x 40.7mm rectangle case and since it’s plastic it weighs only 25 grams. It’s not filled with a bunch of functions, but it does have a chronograph, alarm and calendar and you get three years of battery life. There’s a number of Stranger Things references on the watch - there’s a silhouette of the series’ demogorgon monster beneath the digital display and the LED backlight flickers and rapidly blinks just like the surfacing of a demogorgon in the show. Once lit, you can see the watermark of an upside down Stranger Things logo.
Casio has not announced when the watch will be available or how much it will cost, but you can keep an eye out on it here
. Is this a nice homage to a good TV show, or just another example of over-consumerism and corporate media properties slapping their name everywhere, without actually making a meaningfully authentic version of the watch?
On hand - a selection of reviews 1/ A review of Monta’s current flagship dress watch, the Noble 2/ Hands on with the 39mm and 42mm versions of the Hanhart 414 ES Flyback 3/ A week with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore limited edition in pink gold and titanium
Watch Worthy - A look at an offbeat, less known watch you might actually like Dryden is a go-everywhere-do-anything watch with plenty of options
Great dials are always appreciated, but no matter how good the dial is, it doesn’t matter if the watch isn’t wearable. The excellent design choices found on the dial of the Heartlander follow through to the case. Crafted from stainless steel the 38mm-wide case has a lovely 46mm lug-to-lug distance and is only 11.2mm-thick from solid steel caseback to domed sapphire crystal. These dimensions are in the Goldilocks region for an everyday watch for me and my ~6.5-inch wrist. The cases are predominantly brushed except for a thin highly polished bevel that flanks each side of the lugs.

2023.06.07 14:01 VagusTruman I was looking over Hideo Kojima's antics over the years, and thought about something. trust me, it's relevant towards Alan Wake
He has a nasty habit of writing about concepts/stories that eventually found themselves to be massive series of cautionary tales that had come to fruition.
Look at Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty; a story regarding how the internet can be a volatile source of misinformation that can easily manipulate people (clickbait, biased articles, gaslighting, etc.). Then Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots; integration of technology into the essence of combat being a liability. The biggest kicker is probably Death Stranding, with the world closing its doors from the world, and the couriers getting put on the pedestal (the pandemic and delivery services going into overdrive).
Now, looking at this stream, tell me it doesn't sound like Kojima was Achilles, and Cauldron Lake was the Styx. At the very least, he had to have skinny-dipped down there and took crack during his time there. Tell me.

2023.06.07 14:01 Lord__Business PSAs of the week (June 7, 2023)
Buckle up kids, there's a lot going on that you should know. Tried to keep it short, but the devil's in the details, so I did the best I could. Inhale
- New content day! New EQ and SQ drops at the usual time. Read about rewards and details here, but basically EQ is the same as always and SQ will be a limited entry event using keys you gather from completing spider-related objectives.
- New BG meta for Gladiator Circuit drops today too. This is week 3, meaning we've got 2 more weeks of this season. Read about the meta nodes here.
- Cassie Lang and Future Ant Man aren't receiving any tune ups or downs, except Kabam is treating some bug fixes as a tune up such that they won't be doing an old champion buff (spoiler alert: LB thinks that's stupid). Details here. Buff schedule going forward: Shuri and Attuma buffs went live with the June patch, Mantis buff comes in July, Abs Man tune "down" (reducing regen when he's not 100% health at start of fight) comes in August, and the FAM "buff" will be in September.
- A big ol' ban wave rolled out last night. Kabam smacked arena botters and BG modders with 7-day or permanent bans. A lot of big account names were hit (like over half of TCN are banned right now). Read details here. LB editorial: good work Kabam, cheaters can get fucked.
- AW season lasts one more week. Last war had a host of bugs, so Kabam won't apply points from that war to season total (the W or L will still affect your war rating, which affects which tier you're in, but it won't affect your final season placement score, which relies solely on points). To fix it, Kabam is going to bump up each alliance's season rewards up a level, so Gold 1 placement will receive Platinum 4 rewards, P2 gets P1, etc. Details here. Because this adjustment takes time, AW season rewards will be delayed by about a week.
- Kabam is running a vote on which champs should be in the first 7* Titan crystal. They already messed up by including BWCV when she shouldn't have been an option. It's on Twitter if you want to participate, they're releasing new polls over the next few days/weeks.
- Mod hat on for Subreddit announcement we will be shutting down the sub starting June 12 to protest Reddit's decision to kill 3rd party apps. Details of what's happening and why it's bad are here, but basically Reddit's official mobile app is dogshit and they're going to start preventing other apps from accessing the site. It affects a ton of people, including the mods who keep the sub tuned up. So we're going to join the boycott by making the sub private. Feel free to express your opinion on this important matter in the comments or the linked post.

2023.06.07 14:00 Orikakuli About doing SEO for an E-commerce business
Hey everyone. I wanted to know how to best incorporate SEO for an e-commerce business.
I'll share what I currently know about SEO.
- I know you need to sign in to GSC (Google Search Console) and verify your website in there - already done that.
- I know you need to do SEO research for the product you're selling and incorporate these keywords in your website pages as well as create blogs around similar keywords. example, if you're selling a dress, you should create blogs like "best dresses to wear", "all you need to know about dresses", etc. as well as mention these keywords across your website and product pages. (correct me if i'm wrong)
- I know you need to have a high Domain Authority score, and you get it when other high DA websites have links to your website.
- Edit Alt text for images/pages of your website.
If i missed a point / i'm wrong about a point, please correct me.
My knowledge came mainly from watching Neil Patel videos.
in the meantime,i also have a question about buying 100% white-hat backlinks from fiverr. i see these listings that claim to get you 900 backlinks for a few bucks and they say it's 100% white-hat. these listings have many reviews on them. i wonder whether some of you have tried buying these, whether they're legit and whether you can get penalized by google for doing it even tho they say it's 100% white-hat backlinks? also, what am i supposed to expect to happen when buying 900 backlinks like that?
Thank you for reading and for the helpers in advance.

2023.06.07 14:00 Nandanitiwari ChatGPT: Revolutionising Conversations with AI
| || | submitted by Nandanitiwari to u/Nandanitiwari [link] [comments]
Discover how ChatGPT is revolutionising conversations with AI. Explore the evolution, workings, benefits, applications, and ethical considerations of ChatGPT.
ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI, is an advanced language model that utilises deep learning techniques to engage in meaningful and dynamic conversations with users. It is designed to understand and generate human-like responses, enabling seamless interactions between humans and machines. The rise of ChatGPT has opened up new possibilities for businesses, educators, and individuals seeking intelligent conversational agents.
Evolution of AI in Conversations
Early attempts at creating conversational AI can be traced back to simple rule-based chatbots. However, these early systems lacked the ability to comprehend complex language patterns and deliver accurate responses. With the introduction of ChatGPT, there has been a significant leap forward in the capabilities of conversational AI.
How ChatGPT Works
ChatGPT's training process involves exposing the model to a large dataset consisting of diverse conversations. This helps it learn the intricacies of language, grasp the nuances of context, and develop a deep understanding of human communication. After the initial training, fine-tuning is performed to optimise the model's performance and align it with specific application requirements.
Benefits of ChatGPT
The emergence of ChatGPT has brought forth a multitude of benefits across various domains. Some of the key advantages include: 1. Enhanced customer service experiences
ChatGPT can serve as a virtual customer support agent, providing real-time assistance and resolving queries efficiently. Its ability to understand natural language and respond promptly improves customer satisfaction and reduces wait times. 2. Efficient virtual assistants
By leveraging ChatGPT
, virtual assistants can handle complex tasks, manage schedules, and provide personalised recommendations. They can assist users in organising their lives, helping them stay productive and informed. 3. Language learning and practice
ChatGPT can be an invaluable tool for language learners. It offers the opportunity to practise conversational skills in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Learners can engage in realistic conversations, receive feedback, and enhance their language proficiency. 4. Personalised recommendations and suggestions
Through its deep understanding of user preferences and context, ChatGPT can offer personalised recommendations for products, services, and content. This tailored approach enhances user experiences and improves engagement. 5. Ethical Considerations
While ChatGPT brings immense potential, it also raises important ethical considerations. OpenAI has made significant efforts to address these concerns, focusing on: 6. Addressing biases and misinformation
OpenAI is committed to minimising biases in AI-generated content and combating the spread of misinformation. They continuously refine the training process to reduce biases and ensure the content generated by ChatGPT remains accurate and unbiased. 7. Ensuring user privacy and data security
OpenAI prioritises user privacy and takes measures to protect sensitive information. ChatGPT conversations are anonymized and monitored to prevent any misuse or unauthorised access to user data. 8. Transparency in AI-generated content
To build trust and transparency, OpenAI strives to provide clearer signals that the content is generated by AI. This ensures users are aware of the nature of the interaction and can make informed decisions.
Applications of ChatGPT
The versatility of ChatGPT opens up a myriad of applications across different industries: 1. Customer support and helpdesk
Companies can deploy ChatGPT-powered chatbots to handle customer inquiries, troubleshoot common issues, and provide support round the clock. This helps businesses improve customer satisfaction and reduce support costs. 2. Virtual tutoring and education
Educational institutions can leverage ChatGPT to create interactive and personalised learning experiences. It can act as a virtual tutor, offering explanations, answering questions, and providing additional resources to students. 3. Content creation and curation
ChatGPT can aid content creators in generating ideas, refining drafts, and optimising content for SEO. It assists in generating engaging blog posts, social media captions, and even creative writing pieces. 4. Creative writing and storytelling
Authors and storytellers can collaborate with ChatGPT to overcome writer's block, explore new narrative angles, or brainstorm ideas. It can serve as a creative companion, offering suggestions and helping shape compelling storylines.
Challenges and Limitations
While ChatGPT is a remarkable breakthrough, it still faces certain challenges and limitations: 1. Contextual understanding and ambiguity
ChatGPT's responses heavily rely on the context provided, which can sometimes lead to misinterpretation or incorrect answers. Handling complex queries and maintaining context throughout long conversations can pose challenges. 2. Inappropriate responses and biases
As with any AI system, there is a risk of generating inappropriate or biassed responses. OpenAI actively works on reducing such occurrences, but occasional lapses may still occur, requiring continuous monitoring and improvement. 3. Lack of real-world experience
ChatGPT lacks real-world experience and relies solely on the data it has been trained on. This can limit its ability to provide practical advice or comprehend specific domain knowledge.
The Future of ChatGPT
OpenAI is committed to continuously improving ChatGPT and addressing its limitations. The future of ChatGPT holds exciting possibilities: 1. Continuous improvement and updates
OpenAI aims to refine the training process and enhance the model's capabilities through ongoing research and development. Regular updates and iterations will ensure that ChatGPT remains at the cutting edge of conversational AI.
- Integration with other technologies
ChatGPT can be integrated with other AI technologies, such as computer vision and speech recognition, to create more comprehensive and immersive conversational experiences. This integration will expand its potential applications in various fields. 3. Impact on various industries and sectors
As ChatGPT evolves, it is expected to have a profound impact across multiple industries. From healthcare to finance, entertainment to e-commerce, ChatGPT will transform the way organisations interact with customers and users.
ChatGPT represents a significant leap in conversational AI, revolutionising the way humans engage with machines. Its ability to understand context, generate human-like responses, and adapt to various conversational styles opens up endless possibilities in customer service, education, content creation, and beyond. As OpenAI continues to improve and refine ChatGPT, we can expect even more remarkable advancements in the field of conversational AI.

2023.06.07 13:59 CameraRick Ubuntu - Programm installieren gestaltet sich schwierig
Hallo ihr Lieben,
ich bin absolut kein Linux-Nutzer was ihr in den folgenden Zeilen auch sehen werdet. Ich habe auf meinem PC via VMware eine Ubuntu VM aufgesetzt, weil ich gern Zugriff auf ein Programm hätte was keine Windows Version besitzt.
Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS aufsetzen hat geklappt, habe aber nicht viel eingerichtet, weil ich auch gar nicht weiß was ich da machen sollte; bis auf dass es anscheinend wahllos immer den Numblock ein- und ausschaltet läuft es auch.
Ich würde gerne gEDA
installieren, nach deren Seite könne man für Ubuntu die Links/Strings für Debian nutzen (ich hatte mich bei der VM gegen Debian entschieden weil das wohl viel komplizierter sein soll als Ubuntu). Ich hab schon rausgefunden dass ich den String (heißt das so?) zum Downloaden/Installieren als Root ins Terminal bringen muss, also habe ich erst den mit sudo -i aufgerufen.
[email protected]:~# apt-get update && apt-get install geda pcb gerbv OK:1 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu jammy InRelease Holen:2 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu jammy-updates InRelease [119 kB] Holen:3 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu jammy-backports InRelease [108 kB] Holen:4 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu jammy-security InRelease [110 kB] Paketlisten werden gelesen… Fertig E: Release-Datei für http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/jammy-updates/InRelease ist noch nicht gültig (ungültig für weitere 19 h 42 min 8 s).

Das ist dann bei rum gekommen, aber ich kann so gar nichts mit der Fehlermeldung anfangen?
Anscheinend soll man auch mit einer .deb Datei arbeiten können, das habe ich dann auch versucht:

Da kann ich zumindest die Fehler nachvollziehen, auch wenn eigentlich alles enthalten sein sollte. Ich hab dann versucht von dieser
verlinkten Seite die anderen Pakete zu besorfen, das hat bei geda-doc noch geklappt nur geda-gschem etwa hat dann wieder fünf Pakete, die es braucht um installiert zu werden.
Bestimmt bin ich jetzt picky, aber das kann ja kein Workflow sein dass man versucht was zu installieren und er einen so lange zwingt einzelne Pakte (und Unterpakte) manuell zu installieren, bis es läuft? Kann ich ihm irgendwie sagen "bitte installiere das hier, und hol einfach alles was Du brauchst, all in"?
Lieben Dank :)

2023.06.07 13:58 Alphamale_hunter Don't wine about "chats deleted" if you have nothing to show. And I ain't asking.
So I was browsing a profile (anonymous of course) that was winning on his profile something like "addicted chat deleters skip me or ignore me"
My profile has 3, or 4 pics. If you messaged me it is because you like what you saw. Can you please have the courtesy and common sense to match my pics?
And I not talking about the shape of my body. One time I asked a guy to match my pics and his answer was "I am not a gym rat or muscly like you". This is not what I am talking about!
There's nothing more precious in this life than TIME! I receive at least 30 messages/day from anonymous profiles such as "Hey", "hi", "Nice pics", and "looking?".
I don't have the time of the day to answer everyone asking for the damn pics. If you don't send one with your messages of course your message will be solely deleted with no mercy.
C'mon! Do you really think I will engage in a conversation with something that I am not even sure is what I am looking for and after a considerable amount of time have to abort the operation because it won't work for me?
So, if bothers you fact you only see "message deleted" on your message grid, maybe is time to rethink about your strategy. What are you doing or saying wrong that is making users delete your messages? Or maybe the pic you are using is not a knockout. Change your pic. Close one and clear. Not a landscape pic or with hats and shades.
Hint: a pic showing less than 60% of you is not a pic. The more, the better. Less than what I am showing? You will most likely get your message deleted.
That's also insulting that you have the nerve to show up with nothing less than matching my pics. That tells me very much about you and is also a determinant factor for me to delete your message.
What the fuck? If in the beginning, you start being shady, you will always gonna be a shady person. Let people show themselves. Is a favor that they do to you. That gives you enough reason to not only delete the chats but not open the door for these individuals into your life. Every time I did, I regretted it. BELIEVE ME!
If had listened to my guy before engaged interactions with anonymous/shady profiles that would have saved a lot of mental sanity. Every time I decided to lose the time of the day with individuals like that, I only had a headache. Quality over quantity. I rather receive one message per week/month from a decent person than receive hundreds of headless, torso, close-up dicks, and asses flying on my screen.
"But this is Sniffies/Grindr"
Don't blame the name of the app and use it as an excuse for your lack of manners and respect.
And for the last let me do a metaphor here. Imagine that you work as a recruiter. When you browse for profiles on LinkedIn? Who would you invite for an interview? A complete and updated profile or one that seems to be lost in time/space? If you advertised a position, who would you invite for an interview? The one that uploaded the resume, and cover letter and filled all information requested on the form or that one that submitted an incomplete application?
One time I heard a recruiter complaining she was having a hard time filling a position that was open for months. Do you know what came to my mind?
Probably people are applying for a job, the same way they start a conversation on Grindr, Sniffies, and Scruff. Incomplete information, missing key parts(face pic is like a resume. Would you apply for a job without sending your resume?) And I don't blame her.
If you are not competent enough to understand society's rules, common sense, perception, and courtesy, you deserve a job neither getting laid nor hooking up. You will be on the margin of society struggling, just trying, trying, and getting NOTHING. Because is that you all have anonymous profiles that engage in conversations without showing yourselves deserve. NOTHING in this world.

2023.06.07 13:58 Djh1982 Why The Council of Trent Rejected the 5-Solas
During a recent post I was in the comments doing my thing defending the Catholic position regarding the council of Trent. I thought my exchange with one user would be informative enough in it’s own right to be the subject of it’s own post. This is by NO MEANS exhaustive in it’s content. My intent is only for it to serve as a starting point for those who wish to be more informed about the statements made by this council. So here it is. WHY THE COUNCIL OF TRENT REJECTED THE FIVE SOLAS
A user writes:
And there are huge problems with catholic theology including their non-acceptance of the 5 solas.
Yes, we do reject them and for good reason.
(Note: this person then goes on to cite the portions of Trent which reject the 5-Solas)
Canon 9. If anyone says that the sinner is justified by faith alone, meaning that nothing else is required to cooperate in order to obtain the grace of justification, and that it is not in any way necessary that he be prepared and disposed by the action of his own will, let him be anathema.
This is supported by [James 2:24]
and [Romans 2:13]
. It is also an indictment of Luther’s position that prior
to salvation man does not have Free Will.
Luther writes in his “On The Bondage Of Will”(1525): ”For if man has lost his freedom, and is forced to serve sin, and cannot will good, what conclusion can more justly be drawn concerning him, than that he sins and wills evil necessarily?" Martin Luther BW pg. 149
This is heretical because Moses says:
“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life
, so that you and your children may live “
The Catholic Church’s teaching at Trent was that Moses was not inviting them to do that which they could not do(i.e; obey God) by means of their will, which meant that their will was truly free
The wording about needing to be ”prepared”
beforehand is a reference to the Council of Orange[529AD] which said that God provides “stimulating graces” which prepares the will for cooperate with justification, freeing it so that man may then choose to do what is good.
Luther did not only
assert that man is justified by faith alone, he also
denied these “stimulating” graces talked about at the Council of Orange. To the council this was a denial of Our Lord’s own testimony: [John 3:8] ”The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
If you didn’t know that before reading canon 9
you would be lost at this point. Now why
was the Council of Orange teaching about “stimulating” graces in the first place?
See Pelagianism: https://www.britannica.com/topic/heresy
As well as this article on the Council of Orange: https://www.britannica.com/topic/councils-of-Orange
Canon 14. If anyone says that man is absolved from his sins and justified because he firmly believes that he is absolved and justified, or that no one is truly justified except him who believes himself justified, and that by this faith alone absolution and justification are effected, let him be anathema.
Trent said that because the scriptures teach that the apostles(and by extension their successors) are the ”ministers of reconciliation”[2 Cor.5:18].
They exercise their apostolic authority to forgive sins through the administration of the sacraments of baptism[Acts 22:12] and sacramental confession[John 20:23]. One may not unilaterally declare that on account of the fact that they “believe” that one has obtained the remission of sins. It is not “through faith alone” that one has the remission of sins, but rather through the authority of Christ, which he has invested in His Church.
Canon 24. If anyone says that justice received is not preserved and also not increased before God through good works, but that those works are merely fruits and signs of justification obtained, not the cause of its increase, let him be anathema.
This is being taught because it is supported by [2 Corinthians 3:18] which says:
“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate
[note: ‘to contemplate’ is a ‘good work’] the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory
,[aka: Justice is increasing] which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
The reformers denied that your justification can increase
AFTER you have been saved. The above passage clearly denies that idea so yes, they rejected sola fide
. They had no choice.
Canon 30. If anyone say that after the reception of the grace of justification the guilt is so remitted and the debt of eternal punishment so blotted out ... that no debt of temporal punishment remains to be discharged ... before the gates of heaven can be opened, let him be anathema.
Temporal punishment for sin was not expiated by the atonement, that’s why we are all going to grow old and die someday. Natural death is a “temporary” punishment, or curse, which was placed on Adam and Eve. Each sin has a temporal punishment associated with it, and this is supported in various sways across several passages:
[1 Peter 4:8]
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
“Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions
, for the sake of his body, which is the church.”
“Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid
the last penny.”
Furthermore, we see this evidence in the OT as well.
David repents of his sin and acknowledges his sin merited death[2 Samuel 12:5].
Then Nathan says, “The Lord also has taken away your sin; you shall not die” [12:13].
But this did not negate punishment:
“Nevertheless, because by this deed you have utterly scorned the Lord, the child that is born to you shall die” [12:14].
Therefore the Catholic Church was correct to condemn the 5-Solas at the Council of Trent. IN CONCLUSION
I hope you have enjoyed this brief explanation of why the Council of Trent said what it said with respect to the 5-Solas.

2023.06.07 13:58 Ok_Elephant_1554 Can she play
When I was around 2 to 3 me my mum and dad lived in a shared house, it was supposed to be just for women fleeing domestic violence or coming out of prison but my mum knew the landlady so my dad was aloud to live with us at this house.Normally men are not aloud to live in these houses due yo vulnerable women fleeing their domestic abuse. This house had a big shared back garden but for some reason we were the only ones to used it, it had giant trees at the end of the lawn and was all grass, I had a little round frog paddling pool I used to play in by myself. Upstairs lived a women and her daughter they would stand in the window for hours watching me play in my pool. I used to beg my mum could I play with the little girl upstairs as I was lonely playing in my pool by myself but all I would get back is no amy there is no little girl up there, I used to get so angry with my mum for lieing to me. One morning the lady from up stairs was in my kitchen having a cupper with my mum this was the first time my mum and her had spoken I seen this as my opportune moment to ask her could I please play with her daughter I told her I would be her best friend and look after her but the response I got only made me more angry the lady told me she didn't have a little girl who lived with her I knew she was lieing I seen her with her all the time I asked her who was the girl in the window then ? All I got was a sad expression and the lady left my mum and dad never spoke to her again. Fast forward to me being in my 20s I brought this up with my mum and asked her why they wouldn't let me play with the girl upstairs my mums face just dropped and this is what she told me, Amy the house we lived in was for women coming out of prison and escaping domestic violence, the lady upstairs had been released from prison for stabbing her husband to death, the lady had 4 children 3 with her husband and a older daughter about 8 years old from a previous relationship. Tragedy struck them and her 8 year old daughter fell down the stairs in the middle of the night and broke her neck and died. One night a few years after the daughters death the lady and her husband were in a bad place with one another and were drinking and arguing alot. when the husband was drunk he told her that he had infact pushed her daughter down the stairs and killed her it wasn't an accident so she snapped and stabbed him to death her other children were adopted to a family in Australia and she went to prison. My blood ran cold when my mum told me this but straight away everything started to make sense. I still to this day remember what the little girl looked like.

Begun in the year of the Cone (July 28th, 2022), the tournament pitted Wrinkle Brains and the Memelords in a daily contest to predict the closing price of the Most Fabulous Stock in the world; Gamestop.

2023.06.07 13:57 baltimore-aureole NYC flunks economics 101 - is this why our taxes and deficits are out of control?
| || | submitted by baltimore-aureole to economy [link] [comments]
https://preview.redd.it/uymnepia4l4b1.jpg?width=310&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f96c49fe068b68d96d11271bb645291791a495ec Photo above - discarded crack pipes made from ordinary household trash. Can't we do better? Not shown - NYC's free vending machines, with made-in-America corporate crack pipes. NYC unveils vending machine for drug users, with free crack pipes and Narcan for ODs Fox News
Being a politician is a job with no credentials required. No college education. Knowledge of history not needed. Never had any economics training? - Okay! Not even basic math. All you need to do is convince enough people to vote for you.
As exhibit A, I submit New York City's latest brainstorm – free vending machines for crack pipes and Narcan. See link above. There's so much wrong here, I don't know where to begin.
First off – common sense. If you had just $1 left in your bank account (NY is, in fact, having a budget crisis), would you blow it on crack pipes? Or possibly something more relevant . . . like fire inspections, subway repairs, or public school infrastructure? Obviously, the guys who dreamed up the crack pipe machines have never seen an apartment fire, ridden on the subway, or have any kids in public schools.
Is the concept behind free crack pipes something like this: addicts wouldn't be unable to afford to purchase a pipe after making a drug buy? A subsidy to help dealers keep crack prices high? In any case, the last time anyone checked, you could get all the discarded crack pipes you wanted in Central Park, or in the subway. Maybe even school playgrounds . . .
Perhaps elected officials are trying to get out in front of a future problem. With all the drug cartel members crossing the border, at least SOME of them are going to find their way to NYC. This means more crack and fentanyl on the streets. Shouldn't we make sure there are enough pipes, to surf the wave of drug buys? The last thing New Yorkers want to see is some alarming TV report on the shortage of crack pipes. They would certainly hold city hall responsible for that, right?
Free Narcan in these very same crack-a-cola vending machines? In case you're not familiar, Narcan is a miracle drug that brings overdosed people back from a near-death experience. And it really works too. But like most pharmaceuticals in America, it can get pricey. A police department near me (Florida) reported recently that they had a Narcan SHORTAGE, because it costs hundreds per dose. And if you don't store NARCAN properly, or administer it correctly, it's worthless. So yes, but all means, let's put Narcan in free vending machines. Where someone can steal it – and sell it to police departments and concerned parents in other states.
How does someone even COME UP with the idea of crack pipe vending machines, free or otherwise? Does a city official tell his minions to draft an RFP – request for proposal – and start mailing it out to soda and chip machine vendors? “Gentlemen! Could you build these, and if so how much would each cost? We anticipate buying hundreds.”
Or did a politician with ties to a vending machine racket – er I mean entrepreneur – get approached by the machine guys? Is this a scheme by politicians to steer money to their vending pals? If so, politicians should expect contributions from vending guys during the next election. Insist on it, even.
Giving away Narcan alongside crack pipes is like bundling free Band-Aids and switchblade knives together. It might seem even handed to someone unfamiliar with knives, but in the end you'll need an endless supply of Band-Aids.
My dad only got as far as a high school diploma, but he was a smart guy. He told me “if you subsidize something, you get more of it. If you tax it, you get less of it."
In a nutshell that's economics 101. NYC has decided to subsidize crack pipes and raise taxes on legitimate citizens. Can you guess how this turns out . . .?

2023.06.07 13:55 hiphophead204 Jumpy 4-20 readings, any ideas?
| || |
There's 3 radar level sensors (4 -20 out) that used to be run in a loop thru an omron ad042 that ended at an AB 1756 IF6. This worked for years giving proper levels at both plcs (with minor fluctuations of 0.1%). submitted by hiphophead204 to PLC [link] [comments]
Now the HMI connected the omron is showing 4% or greater fluctuations, but the AB plc shows a fairly steady level.
When I take the new AB analog input out of the loop, the omron reads fairly steady. Nobody knows when the big fluctuations started but I suspect it started a few months back when the Allen Bradley got swapped out.
The AB input card now has all the signal returns linked (field wiring goes to termination card). I've tried having the omron & AB commons linked & not. See attachments for visualization.
