2020.09.08 07:30 puala-koalar Vegan Influencers Aren't Activists, Especially Joey Carbstrong, and the Vegan Bros

As someone who actually studies how to help activists become more effective, I'm tried of this crappy, uneducated advice that vegan influencers are putting out on the internet. It's a massive disservice to the community.
I just hate how all of the information that mainstream vegan influencers are putting out are either focused on how to have 1-1 conversations or how to be a good role model, with the exception of the Vegan Bros, who are telling you not to talk about veganism because it's not effective. I can tell they just skimmed through Tobias Leenaert's "How to Create a Vegan World." The Vegan Bros completely missed the message of the book, which argues that more people will go vegan if we focus on changing the systemic barriers that prevent people from going vegan. For example, to be a vegan, you have to constantly advocate for yourself to make sure there are vegan options for you. If, instead, we worked with restaurants and cafeterias to create a culture where there are always vegan options, more people would go vegan. That's why implementing Meatless Mondays at a school cafeteria, so the school only serves vegan meals one day of the week, will make a big impact. The staff would get training on creating quality vegan options and nobody in the entire school would consume animal products unless they brought their own food in. Clearly, talking to administrators about implementing Meatless Mondays and calling in a vegan organization to train the cafeteria staff will be more effective than standing outside trying to talk to people 1-1. That's what Tobias is saying. Not that we need to shut up about veganism.
If you like AV or Save activism, there's nothing wrong with that, but I hate that these are the only strategies that regularly get talked about in the mainstream movement when there are so many other options. For me, I definitely prefer public speaking over going to a cube, and that's great because public speaking reaches more people in less time. If you're going to run a whole channel on vegan activism, I feel like you should discuss all of the different options so people can actually choose instead of just showing one option because it's what the algorithm prefers.
I really just wish that, instead of spewing whatever they think will work, influential individuals with large platforms would do more research before publishing a video that aims to educate their audience on how to do activism. The other option is that they could actually interview experts (I think Earthling Ed and Mic the Vegan are the only ones that do this, but I also don't know that much about vegan influencers.)
It just infuriates me because they have such a massive opportunity to help activists become extremely effective, and instead they're showing off all their vacation pictures to Bali and asking their audience to pay for their wedding to someone they've dated for six months. (I wonder when we will be asked to pitch in for their divorce.)
Alright, I'm done with my rant. What do y'all think?

2020.08.24 13:06 Megan_Dawn R/FANTASY'S 2020 TOP LGBTQA+ BOOKS VOTING RESULTS

The 2020 top LGBTQA+ voting results post is never late, nor is it early. It arrives precisely when it means to. Which is now, apparently. I do appreciate the patience everyone, and next year I promise not to hold the voting at the height of a pandemic and the same week I get a copy of animal crossing (hit me up if you wanna visit my island!).
The voting post can be found here, and the database of collated votes is here. Please note that I can only vouch for the books that actually made it into this post; there could be books in the database that don't fit at all.
So here we have it! Our sub's favourite books featuring a main POV character who lands somewhere on the LGBTQA+ spectrum. Like any good mother I couldn't possibly play favourites (The Tarot Sequence. The Tarot Sequence is my favourite), I'm just so pleased to see so many fantastic books in one place, and even more excited to dive into the ones that are new to me! Weep for our TBRs, friends. Weep for them.

Machineries of Empire by Yoon Ha Lee Gay, Lesbian & Trans
Look, I know it’s not great that one of your space fortresses is rebelling, I’m just saying that taking a promising soldier and forcing her to share her body with the resurrected spirit of the brilliant and genocidal general you’ve had locked away for a few centuries is maybe - maybe - not your best plan.

A courtesan-spy cursed/blessed by her god to find pleasure in pain and a prudish warrior-priest go through all kinds of hell to save their homeland from traitors, but the real battle is the one against their feelings for each other.

The Kingston Cycle by CL Polk Gay and Lesbian
One good thing about war is that it’s easy enough to fake your own death and start a new life back home where your powerful family can’t use you for your magic. Of course in order for this to be a successful endeavour it helps to keep your head down and not start investigating a murder. If you absolutely must investigate a murder for the love of god don’t do with a mysterious and charming and attention-drawing man by your side. But ok I get it he really is very good looking. Just no high-speed bicycle chases, ok? …Ok?!
The Riverside Books by Ellen Kushner Bi

Richard St. Vier is the very best of them, but it’s not his swordfighting prowess that has young nobleman Alec attached to his side…

Still, If he can let go of his bone-deep abandonment issues for even just one second he might realise he’s found the family he always wanted.
In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan Bi
Eliot is only a child when he is recruited to a magical military academy. One problem though — well, ok, more than one problem. For example, a quill and ink is hideously impractical and there’s only so many pens one carry back from summer break, especially when you’re also trying to smuggle a coffee machine… But aside from all that, there’s the fact that this is an military academy and Eliot is a pacifist.

2020.08.10 10:19 Acrobatic-Albatross6 Paranoia or real problem? I feel like I got hacked and is being trolled or spied on

Sorry if my account looks weird. I am writing this on an alt account since my main account is attached to my irl identity.
For the past few weeks, I have been paranoid whenever I use my computer and phone because it might've been infected with malware. I have reached the point where I have replaced my Android phone for an iPhone and replaced my 3 year old desktop for a laptop. Somehow, I still feel like they have hacked those too. I am hoping that I am wrong but if I'm right then I might go insane. I've already done everything. Scanning, reformat, reset, etc.
This crazy ordeal started when I kept noticing a tab I do not remember opening. This particular tab is actually the forums page for a website I frequent. Although I do admit that I have been becoming more forgetful ever since the lockdown in my country, I still feel like something isn't right. This has happened four times in the span of three weeks before I started becoming paranoid. One time, I locked my computer to do some errands. About 30 minutes later, I unlock the computer, maximize my web browser and lo and behold, I saw the bug reports forum for the website, which I do not remember opening.
Next crazy thing is my cursor and text editor. I'd sometimes put the cursor in one place or go to a certain line in my text editor whenever I would run an errand. After that, I would lock my screen using Ctrl + L. When I unlock my screen using the keyboard, the cursor would sometimes be on another place I don't remember or the editor would be in a different line. Sometimes, I'd see the cursor move on its own BUT it didn't move at the same time. It's like my mind was playing with me or something.
The next thing that happened involves search results. I was looking up something about schizophrenia. When I entered "schizophrenia", Firefox greeted me with three search terms, as if I looked it up in the past. The thing is that I haven't looked anything up about schizophrenia ever since I installed Arch Linux on my machine. Granted, I had a Mozilla account but I already deleted that a week before this ordeal. Another crazy thing is that I feel like the search terms were from my phone, but I have never ever logged in my Mozilla account on my phone so it's impossible for it to sync (I only used my Mozilla account to sync my bookmarks on my desktop since I'm a distro hopper).
It was at this point where I nuked my SSD and started a new installation of Arch Linux. It was a gigantic waste of time because it didn't help at all. I also scanned it using ClamAV on a Live USB before I nuked it.
Another thing that has happened to me is when I upload files to an FTP server. It's on port 21 with explicit TLS encryption. One time, when I was uploading a zip file on the FTP, it just kept stopping and starting again and again. Upload speed kept fluctuating. My internet was fine and so was the FTP server. I reinstalled Filezilla from scratch and that fixed it. I feel like someone tampered with Filezila's configs.
Next weird thing is when I was trying to open OneDrive on Firefox. It didn't work for some reason. I tried opening OneDrive in a Ubuntu VM on Firefox and it worked. Same on the Windows VM with Firefox. Both were the same version. Also worked on my phone. I tried opening it on a Firefox instance with a fresh profile (meaning it's like I just installed it, no addons, configs, etc.) and it didn't work. Activating DNS over HTTPS made it work. This made me even more paranoid.
The next crazy thing invovles my Raspberry Pi. I wanted to track down this hacker by MITM-ing my own machine. I wanted to know if my delusions were real or not. The Raspberry Pi was last opened two months ago, in working condition. I tried booting it and didn't want to boot. I formatted the SD card and installed a fresh image of Diet Pi. Got greeted with a kernel panic.
My keyboard is also part of this crazy ordeal. The r key and enter key wouldn't sometimes work. This started happening around late June. It's a brand new mechanical keyboard that was given to me as a Christmas present by my mom. The insides are clean as far as I can recall.
This doesn't stop with my computer. My phone is also part of this crazy shit. I was looking up something about malware and Pi Hole. Then, I ate and rested for an hour. After that, I unlocked my phone and saw a Reddit page opened for something I don't remember opening. I pressed back and saw that the web result was waaay below from the last one I opened. I had an app that logged traffic and saw that Reddit was loaded around two minutes before I unlocked my phone.
Another thing that happened is when I was looking up some things on my Android phone. It was afternoon and I felt sleepy, so I decided to sleep. When i woke up an hour later, I saw a Google search for "How to get rid of malware on my Android phone?". I DID NOT TYPE THIS. I was looking up something very different.
I found some settings on my Android's firewall app and opened all logs. What I saw was fucking strange. For example, I saw that DNS services tried to query a porn site on port 53 and this was done last December. I just didn't know what to say.
I scanned my phone using MalwareBytes, ESET and Kaspersky. I got nothing.
I decided to reset my phone and created a new Google account dedicated to it. I thought it was all over. But then, not even 24 hours later, some shit happened. I was looking up about fasting and its relation to heart disease. I then closed Chrome watched YouTube. After that, I turned off the screen and ate breakfast. After that, I opened Chrome again and saw a web page opened. Again, I do not remember opening this but it was relateed to the thing I was looking for. I pressed back and saw the search results for the thing I was looking for awhile ago. How did I even click this search result? I'm out of answers.
So after all this crazy shit, I got an iPhone. It was old and used, but at least it was safe since the old owner never really installed anything on it other than Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube. I reset the device and updated it to iOS 13.6. I also sold my desktop and bought a laptop. Formatted it to my liking. I changed my password manager. I turned an old phone into an offline 2FA TOTP code generator (made sure that the phone couldn't connect to the internet). I also wrote down important passwords that I didn't want to store on my password manager in a notebook and stored it in my safe. I thought this crazy ordeal was over but I guess it wasn't.
First, when I was inspecting Windows 10 on my laptop, I saw a folder named PlaceholderTileLogoFolder in C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local. The creation date was pecuilar because it was created when the computer wasn't even turned on. I then checked Event Logs to see if my computer turned on by itself for some reason. Luckily it didn't but I did see explorer.exe trying to access an account named "Guest", which didn't exist. I was thinking this happened when I tried to open a folder that I didn't have permission to but I'm not so sure. I scanned the laptop using MalwareBytes, Windows Defender and Windows Defender Offline. Got nothing.
After that, I wanted to change the password for one of my Google accounts on my iPhone. I pasted my old password when Google asked, generated a new password and pasted that. When I went to the two step page on Google so I could clear trusted devices, I was greeted with "wrong password" when I entered my new password. I checked if it was my old password that I copied but nope it was the new one.
Next thing is when I checked my Facebook's activity logs one day and saw some pages I do not remember liking. I checked my security settings. I had 2FA and all the likes. Had no apps that could interact with my account. Never used my Facebook for logging in to other websites. I had no trusted devices. In the end, I deleted my Facebook account and made a new one (and this was the perfect time to start fresh, anyways). An hour or so later after creating my new account, I was greeted with "Session Expired, Please Login again". This kinda scared me for some reason. It was a new account, had 2FA, no trusted devices, etc.
Also, just last night, my password manager crashed twice and I don't know why. I was just deleting the entry for my old Facebook.
Before I end this, I'd like to say that I am the type of guy that never opens unknown email attachments nor do I open docx/pdf/pptx files from someone I do not know. If I had to open any pdf/pptx/docx file, I'd open them in a virtual machine. I used Mozilla Firefox with Javascript disabled on every website except for YouTube, Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, and three trustworthy sites that I have been visiting for years. I also had an ad blocker (uBlock Origin), HTTPS Everywhere, and Cookie Autodelete.
I (used) to run Arch Linux on my desktop with strict firewall rules (no incoming connections allowed). I only installed programs from my Linux distro's repository (except for one program (Spring Tools Suite) but I scanned every file possible on VirusTotal before I even opened it). I haven't ran cracked software/games/etc for two years. Only used open source software on my desktop and had Windows only in a virtual machine, with strict rules too. I use Cloudflare's DNS.
My Android phone also had Firefox with the same extensions. I only installed trustworthy apps from the Play Store and F-Droid (open source app store that has strict criterias for apps like being open source, etc. which makes it secure). I installed Mozilla Firefox from F-Droid and it can't login to Mozilla's web services. I have never installed sketchy apps. The only app I had from the Play Store besides the default apps was Azur Lane, rest are from F-Droid.
My network is locked. It's impossible to even open a port. My router isn't reachable on the public internet. Only my ISP can open advanced settings on my router.
I tried catching whoever is doing this. I opened tcpdump on my main machine and left it running for an hour. Saw no sketchy IP addresses. I tried logging my Android phone's traffic using another laptop and a fake WiFi access point with internet access. Also got nothing. So unless they're using Google/Microsoft/Amazon's infrastructure to mess with me, I am probably becoming paranoid. I'm scared that I might be right with this. I already told my parents about this and it's great that they understand. Too bad we can't see a specialist right now due to the lockdown.
I'm a programmer and working everyday on my computer feels like torture. I'm using someone else's computer so I could work but even there it feels painful due to paranoia.
Edit: Forgot to add that someone tried to used my prepaid debit card for something called BLCUP. I already blocked that card. I haven't used my bank account for online shopping in years. I only use a prepaid debit card for online shopping. Even then, I don't use the card directly. It's linked to my PayPal.

2020.08.05 23:14 iamthemagician facebook live streaming

I'm new to OBS and I've been trying to figure out how to stream with it on facebook live. I tried changing some settings (output video bitrate 4000 kbps, 128 audio; video base resolution 1280x720) and even have a wired internet connection, but facebook keeps saying "live video interrupted" after many periods of buffering. This is in the preview before I even attempt to go live, although the problem persists when I do go live as well.
ETA: this is my log file from today:

2020.08.04 20:38 sushi_and_boba VITA Webinar Notes

They will be posting this webinar in 3-5 days.
This is what I was able to get down during it. I missed a couple of things, but this is pretty comprehensive. Thank you premed community for being so supportive during this application cycle. I wish you all the best during your interviews <3
VITA webinar notes:
You do not need to do all the questions in one sitting. (Can do however many questions you want in one sitting. This is an UNTIMED break, so you can take as many breaks as you need to)
General Info:
Order of events:
  1. Schools select which applicants to interview
  2. hireVUE sends the interview request to you
  3. They will send us weekly summary emails to see which schools have invited us.
Practice Tips:
Questions types:
Use the Star Model for question responses:
  1. No additional schools beyond what is on the list today will be added to the VITA list (it has been finalized).
  2. There is a countdown timer as you use your interview time. If you complete the response before the time is up, you can submit and move on.
  3. Do not need to be invited before you can practice AAMC (can practice whenever), but will need to be invited before you can do the practice hireVUE one.
  4. Cannot take notes OR document the questions
  5. Will receive one question per competency area (so that is what makes up the 6 questions)
  6. Schools will not know how long your breaks (unless you change clothing across multiple days, or queues that you give them through your videos)
  7. If your setting is distracting, you can use noise cancelling headphones as long as it does not interfere with the quality of your response.
  8. Your answer does not need to be 3 minutes long (give your best response, not longest response)
  9. If it proves useful, they will continue using it in future years
  10. No school specific questions (multiple med schools have vetted these questions and they have decided that these questions are pertinent to what they find important).
  11. The question remains on the page during your answer recording.
  12. Reponses are saved on your device as you go, but to submit them you have to indicate this. (this confuses me but maybe tech people will understand it)-will see a final page that confirms that you interview was submitted
  13. If technical difficulty occurs, they will decide which questions were messed up (but then they said that they will then offer you to redo the whole interview)
  14. Each school views this differently. In most cases, schools have indicated that they are using VITA in conjunction with their own interview process (which would cover their more school-specific questions). Totally depends on the school though.
  15. Only a school specific deadline will dictate when you need to have this done by
  16. Not every applicant will receive an invite (some schools school may not want you to interview even if you complete a secondary, whereas other schools might invite everyone to VITA. Just depends on the school)
  17. Most schools will send an email to let us know when we should expect to see a VITA invite (they have been encouraged to do this by the AAMC.
  18. We will also receive another invitation from hireVUE (ideally, it will send out a summary email but it seems they may send more than one)
  19. Recommended to dress professionally (the question was if we should wear a suit, but they didn’t confirm that specifically a suit should be worn.)
  20. Competencies and their definitions are listed in the AAMC essentials (AAMC website) and the anatomy of an applicant page can also link you there)
  21. They said that if your practice interview is successful (through the hireVUE) system, it does not mean that it will turn out perfectly on the interview because tech is so finicky. Just makes sure that you complete practice questions right before your VITA interview to make sure your video and audio is clear the day that you are doing it.
  22. Medical schools using VITA is receiving training from the AAMC and they are providing them unconscious bias training as well. They are also receiving training on scoring so they focus on the content of the response.
*I missed a couple of questions, but I believe the ones I missed were covered in the main body of these notes.
Good luck everyone! You are capable! You can do this!

2020.08.03 19:45 Ivefrigginhadit It's 03/08/2020, and RDR2 STILL won't launch!

So as the title says, even though it's a long time since the game launched on PC, there are still issues regarding getting the game to run.
I bought the game when it came out on PC, and I've played quite some time on my older PC which had a GTX 1070 and Intel i7 6800K.
However, now I bought a new computer, which has RTX 2070 Super and AMD 3950X, and It's brand new, with all drivers up to date. I actually managed to play the game a little bit. Started doing the prologue missions. But I closed the game and tried out some other games I had.
A couple days later, and I wanted to play red dead redemption 2 again, but I can't for the life of me get past the into with the two bullets loaded into the shotgun. I've tried everything I could find on the internet.
However, the reason I write this post is because the newest article I could find where someone actually had a similar problem, was made back in November 2019. Which is a bit concerning to me, cause it then seems like rockstar "fixed" the issue, and everyone is fine, while I'm still here with the same old issue.
Does anyone have a solution to this other than:- Updating drivers- Making an exception on whatever AV I'm using- Compatibility mode (tried it all).
Nothing seems to be working for me, which is unacceptable, as I payed $60 for this game, and I'm not letting it collect dust.

You'll literally take any good attribute on a guy, and make it seem as tho that single thing is the ONLY reason they still got a chance at dating. Whereas many of you have 1-3 of those good attributes, but blame everything on a single bad one. And as soon as someone points out anything good on themselves, you call them a fake cell.
STOP putting yourself down like this. And STOP gatekeeping so much.
People can have many different reasons for why they didn't find a partner yet.
It could be (and often is on this sub), lack of experience with women, in dating in general, social anxiety, some even have genuine and diagnosed depression.
Rarely is anyone criminally short for a guy (4'11")
Rarely is anyone so facially deformed to the point of them being totally unattractive to the other gender.
Rarely does someone have genuine mental disorders keeping them from finding a partner (NOT SELF DIAGNOSED) (autism for example).
Stop trying to make YOURSELF the biggest loser, and STOP denying other people's experiences, just because they have a good aspect in their life, that you do not have.
If someone is male, and without s partner, involuntarily, there is an issue (after the age of 18).
Weather it's simply lack of dating experience, or genuine problems.
The point is, trying to fix them. Not saying it's over and being edgy on the internet, saying you'll "rope soon".

2020.07.07 12:55 Nautilium Should I go on a (possible) date

Haha, clickbaited.
About a week ago I met a girl who speaks my first language randomly on the internet. I live here because of my uni and for an entire year I've been lonely af. She lives in a town 3 hours away. We don't really have much in common, but it feels easy talking to her, which is super rare and is a gigantic sign to me.
Once while we were chatting she mentioned that I should visit her city, because her city is connected to sea and mine isn't. So I guess she just wants to hang out and not go on a date (which is good, I am way better at drinking absurd amounts of beer than going on dates).
Anyways, the only reason for my hesitation is avpd. I had lots of therapy and got better at controling my anxiety and stuff, but usually it still depends on my surroundings. And here is the problem - I don't really know her, but at the same time, I won't ever know her better without meeting her irl.
I am "brave" enough to go, but I want to make sure that I won't fuck it up somehow. I tend to get false impressions of people a lot, which can make me anxious. Also, most of people that I ever had hang out with were aware of my AvPD (or at least they knew that something wasn't right with me) and this scares me as well.
Fellow avoidants, any tips or advices?

2020.06.20 14:37 Psytrense Google Search Results...

For quite some time now I’ve been noticing these fake websites showing up in my google results:
I’ll notice these on both my desktop and laptop. I do not see similar trash results when using Bing or DuckDuckGo.
The facts:
I am NOT seeing more ads than usual (very few actually).
I am NOT experiencing any computer slowdowns or irregularities.
But why am I seeing obviously fake search results? I checked some of these URL’s in the past using a 3rd party service and in many cases their hosting has suspended them so I assume they got compromised/hacked.
Why are some results being omitted and what should I do about that, if anything?
What do????

2020.06.19 20:45 ilovewhenbirdsfly XP Data Execution Prevention closes Malwarebytes on startup

I mostly keep this computer's internet adapter disabled unless I'm installing anything new on it. I have Avast running as the active AV and Malwarebytes as the second opinion (getting a Kaspersky AV installation wasn't working out). Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool is also installed as a third option. This XP is a newer install I did a month or two ago. I rarely use the machine.
When I started up the computer today (with internet adapter disabled), I logged into the non-root admin account I created to change some settings. I got an alert from Data Execution Prevention that Malwarebytes was suspicious and it was going to close it. I was given the option to grant a DEP exception for Malwarebytes Services or allow it to close. I allowed it to close and it gave me the typical "This program closed unexpectedly. Send Error Report/Do Not Send" message. This is the first time DEP has ever done anything to stop Malwarebytes, and the first time I've gotten a DEP alert overall.
The last time I used this computer was a few days ago to install some old CD games that I never got around to installing. When I started it up, I was surprised to find that the date was around June 20, 2013, and that I had over 2000 days left in my free trial of Malwarebytes Premium. I fixed the date and installed Avast since there were no other good free antivirus options for XP that were continuously active. I restarted the computer to make sure everything worked fine, and nothing unusual happened.
Does anyone know what could have caused this?

2020.06.18 05:47 sillygaythrowaway Far Cry 4 gold, fitgirl repack - constant crashing

first off - verified files before and after install. no missing or bad files, don't use AV, installed with the 2gb ram limit for stability. Drivers up to date etc
Specs: i7 7700hq, 1050ti, 8gb ram
First crash was right after launch.
Then crashed during an early cutscene.
Now constant crashes whenever I die or save. It's not playable to say the least
The comments on the site were as usual, useless and haven't found much other info. Any shouts on how to help this?
Worst comes to worst i guess I could find another crack but i tend to just go for fitgirl releases as my internet is pretty piss and I'm patient enough for the slow installs

Beginner's Guide to Arena of Valor


Hey fellow plebs,
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we’ve been getting some frequent new player questions on this sub lately. Since the game is no longer as popular as before (still doing good though), there are a lot of wrong/outdated information out there on the internet. Fortunately, I have nothing better to do with my life and decided to volunteer myself to write this guide where I compile a list of information/guides that IS up to date. I’m obviously not going to find every relevant guide out there, so please help me out if there is something that I’ve missed.
In this guide, I will cover the absolute basics of the game such as the map, objectives, roles, relevant heroes, and how to improve at the game. Ideally we can keep this stickied and I'll keep this updated so we can have an updated community guide for any new players that decides to join us in the future.

TL;DR – No TL;DR here, keep on reading and maybe you'll finally stop getting reported every game and get out of gold!

The Map

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the map if you’ve played a MOBA in your life, it’s fairly standard with three lanes and a jungle. The three lanes consists of the Abyssal Dragon lane, mid lane and the Dark Slayer lane (more on this later with pictures). There are 3 enemy towers on each lane, making it a total of 9 towers and one core for you to destroy.
This is where things become a little different from PC MOBAS, the maps in AOV are mirrored. What this means is that you will ALWAYS start from the bottom left of the map from YOUR perspective. Why is this? Because it’s easier for the player (that’s you!) to play upwards instead of downwards since your skills and your fat fingers will block and limit your vision if you’re playing downwards. Why does this matter? Because this means that the Abyssal Dragon lane and the Dark Slayer lane will be in different lanes (top or bottom) depending on the game. Don’t worry, I’ll explain what the Abyssal Dragon and the Dark Slayers is soon and everything will make sense. Just know that unlike PC MOBAs, the solo lane isn’t ALWAYS the top lane, and the ADC doesn’t ALWAYS go to the bottom lane.

Blue circle = Dark slayer, Red circle = Abyssal Dragon/Enraged Abyssal Dragon (after 15 mins)

Although the position of the Abyssal Dragon and the Dark Slayer changes match to match, the position of the buffs doesn't change. Your blue buff will ALWAYS spawn near the top lane, and your red buff will ALWAYS spawn near the bottom lane. Similarly, the enemy blue buff will spawn on the right hand side of the map and the enemy red buff will spawn on the left hand side of the map.

Red circle = Red buff, Blue circle = Blue buff


The roles should be fairly straight forward if you’ve played LoL before, but will be slightly foreign if you’re a MLBB player or a big brained DOTA player. It’s okay, we’re taking baby steps here, I will explain the basics of every role below. I’ll also include some recommended starting heroes (both free & ones you buy), heroes you can work towards for each role, and heroes to avoid.
Mid Lane:
Any hero with a fast/safe wave clear will excel in this role. Mages typically do well in this role although some Warriors are also okay if you want to get fancy (you should stick to mages early on though). What you want to do is clear your wave as soon as possible, roam to one of your side lanes to gank, and be back for your next minion wave. Getting back to your lane for your next minion wave is EXTREMELY important because otherwise you will fall behind in farm. A lot of mages overstay their welcome when ganking the side lanes and end up missing their minion wave completely in the mid lane. Not only do they miss gold from their minion wave, they also end up taxing their side laner’s gold.
Recommended starting heroes:
Krixi (Free) – She’s a top tier mage despite being one of the first free heroes the game gives you. She has good range/poke, a little CC with her S2, and good burst from her ultimate. Mechanics wise she’s very simple, and very easy to use for new players.
Diao Chan (Free) – She’s a very devastating hero in the right hands because of her S2 freeze, which can often turn the tides of a game completely. They are a little hard to land consistently but hey she’s free.
Aleister (Free) - Has one of the stupidest most devastating ult in the game, and he's free for new players from Road to glory.
Dirak (18,888 Gold) – Best mid laner in the current meta. He has insane range/poke, insane damage, good CC with his S1 push & S2, very quick wave clear, and very good team fighting capabilities. Only weakness is that he’s not very mobile.
Marja (18,888 Gold) – Very forgiving yet strong mage in the current meta. She doesn’t have a lot of burst damage, but has tons of sustain and is able to dish out a ton of damage in long team fights. Her ultimate is the ultimate “get out of jail” card making her one of the most forgiving heroes to play. She also doesn’t use any mana which is perfect for new players who might have trouble with mana management. Oh, you also get a ton of her trial cards from the daily spin, so you can test her out quite a bit before purchasing her.
Heroes to work towards:
Lilliana (18,888 Gold) – She has two forms (Fox and Human), which means you need at least two brain cells to play her. She’s one of the strongest late game mages in the game, and her early game just got buffed as well making her one of the strongest overall mages in the game.
Raz (13,333 Gold) – An assassin mage that requires slightly fast fingers to pull off your full combo. He has very good poke and burst damage, but doesn’t have a lot of AoE damage and has slow wave clear. You need to have somewhat of a decent map awareness to be good with Raz so you can pick off squishy heroes. He’s much more effective in high elo where your support will (hopefully) help you clear waves so you can roam faster. Not as effective in low elo where your support either doesn’t buy the support item thus leeching your gold/exp, or doesn’t help you clear at all.
There are also tons of other good mid laners such as Paine/Tulen/Ignis/Jinnaetc I'm too lazy to list them all.
Heroes to avoid:
Veera/Mganga/Azzenka – These heroes might seem decent or even good earlier on, but trust me they suck. They might get you to as high as Platinum/Diamond, but that’s it.
Dark Slayer Lane:
This is also known as the solo lane, warrior type heroes who have good 1v1 capabilities, good sustain, and good escape options are usually picked here. This lane is where you showcase your big brain against your opponents and get those solo kills. If you enjoy the thrill of asserting dominance over a single opponent, then this is the role for you my friend. There are several types of heroes that gets picked into this lane including assassins, split pushers, duelists, and tanks.
Recommended starting heroes:
Lubu (Free) – Very well rounded hero, has good damage and has good sustain. He matches up decently against most matchups.
Arthur (Free) – Very good starting hero to get your hands, innately tanky and hard to take down. He doesn’t have a lot of carry potential but is still deadly if played correctly.
Omen (8,999) – He’s on sale for the first two weeks if you’re in the NA/EU server iirc for 8,999 gold, he’s one of the premier split pushers in the game right now (along with Kilgroth). Split pushing seems like an easy role but requires a lot of map awareness and good decision making. You need to know when you can safely push, and when you should join team fights. He also has one of the few hard CCs (cannot be purified) in the game with his ult.
Maloch (18,999) – One of the most forgiving heroes in the slayer lane right now. Does a ton of damage with the true damage on his S1, and is capable of tanking a ton with the shield on his S2 along with his innate tankiness. His ultimate also makes him one of the best initiators in the game, there’s nothing to not like about Maloch right now other than that he’s a bit slow. High elo likes to play him at the mid lane and force fights around him since he’s such a potent team fight hero.
Heroes to work towards:
Yena (18,999 Gold) – One of the strongest heroes in the game when played correctly. She has two different forms so it does take a bit of practice mechanically, which is why it’s a hero I recommend only after you’ve gotten used to the macro aspect of the game. You need to know how/when/where to camp you opponents to utilize her full potential.
Riktor (18,999 Gold) – One of most popular picks in high elo and competitive play, has the perfect amount of tankiness and damage in the game right now IMO. Similar to Yena, I highly recommend only after you’ve gotten used to the macro aspects of the game since he needs to utilize bush camping as well.
Florentino (18,999 Gold) – The strongest 1v1 hero in the game but takes a lot of practice. It takes a lot of experience to use him correctly in team fights but is very deadly once mastered. IMO, you can’t say you’ve mastered the DS laner role without having figured out the ins and outs of this hero.
Again there are tons of other good DS laners such as Qi/Volkath/Veres/etc that are very viable in the meta, try them out and see which one fits your play style better.
Heroes to avoid:
Taara/Wiro/Arduin/Skud – There are too many heroes that are capable of doing what these heroes are supposed to do, but do it 10x better.
Abyssal Dragon Lane:
Usually the ADC goes here, sometimes the games are also played without an ADC in high elo so any DS lane hero works here as well. In low elo you’ll most likely see a duo lane with a support right from the start, but in high elo you’re support will (hopefully) be roaming to provide vision for the entire team so you have to know how to lane by yourself as well. The Abyssal Dragon is the first major objective of the game as it gives the whole team extra gold/exp and spawns at the 2:00 mark. There was also a recent buff that buffed the dark slayer lane/mid lane towers to have 60% damage reduction for the first 5 minutes, meaning that the majority of the early game battles will be focused around the Abyssal Dragon lane. As an ADC, your job is to farm and survive until the late game where you start to take over and carry the team. You need good positioning, map awareness, and good farming capabilities to excel in this role.
Recommended starting heroes:
Violet (Free): Pretty sure you get her for free after completing a few ranked games in NA, she’s not as broken as before but she’s definitely still deadly when given appropriate farm. She has insane range with her S1 and can poke enemies from afar, which is really good for new players starting out.
Valhein (Free): I know Valhein is kind of a meme and gets associated with small brain players, but he’s a really good starting hero. He’s extremely forgiving as the only marksman with an auto aimed stun on his S2, which allows him to engage or disengage from an enemy assassin. However, he falls off hard in the lately game damage wise compared to other marksman. My recommendation is to use him for 10 games or so to get used to the role, and switch to another marksman afterwards.
Capheny (18,999 Gold) – IMO the best marksman in the game right now. She’s the only marksman that can move WHILE attacking, which makes her extremely forgiving as she can often kill the enemy assassins if they miss their skill shots. She does tons of sustained damage in her machine gun form, and does tons of burst damage in her laser form. The best part is, she often gets overlooked in the B/P phase.
Telannas (18,999 Gold) – One of the easiest hero in the game alongside Valhein, just use your S1 S2 and auto attack the shit out of the enemies with an occasional stun from your S3.
Heroes to work towards:
Elsu (18,999 Gold) – There are no wards in this game with the exception of Elsu’s S1, making him extremely valuable in high elo and competitive games. Mechanically he’s one of the hardest heroes in the game, because you need to be able to hit his S2 consistently to be valuable.
Elandor (18,999 Gold) – Mechanically he’s one of the hardest marksman in the game, but is very rewarding when mastered. IMO he’s better as a jungler when he can get that gold/level advantage, but is still viable in lane when mastered.
Laville – He’s a codex hero, so if you weren’t around for the codex last season you won’t be able to get him until he’s put into the shop 4-8 weeks from now, or maybe even longer.
Joker (18,999 Gold) – He’s not really an ADC, but more of an Anti-ADC. He counters most ADCs in lane (except for Elsu), but he’s more of an ranged assassin than an ADC.
Hayate (18,999 Gold) – He has one of the latest late games out of all the ADCs, but is one of the strongest after he gets to his late game.
Heroes to avoid:
Wisp/Moren/Yorn – No reason to be playing these when you have the above available
You’re the pseudo carry of the team until your ADC comes online in the late game. The jungler shoulders the most responsibility more often than not because you’re responsible for initiating ganks, taking major objectives, and controlling the general flow of the game. Typically, it’s very hard to win games with a bad jungler as opposed to any other role.
Recommended starting heroes:
Kriknak (Free) – One of the strongest burst heroes in the game, he’s an typically Assassin who targets the squishies on the opposing teams. He’s not very complicated mechanics wise, so you mainly have to work on your macro
Butterfly (Free) – One of the most iconic heroes of AoV, any kills & assists refreshes all of her CDs making her one of the best snowball heroes in the game. You need to time her entry in order to be good, and she falls off slightly in the late game
Zephys (Hero Tokens/First time voucher purchase reward) – One of the most balanced heroes in the game with good damage, sustain and tainkiness. Very good in low elo where people fight ALL the time.
Heroes to work towards:
There are so many good junglers right now, look at the tier lists below and pick your poison, you literally can’t go wrong.
Assassins: Paine/Keera/Enzo/Zill/Nakroth/Murad/etc
ADC junglers: ElandoLindis/Fennik/Violet are the popular ones
Heroes to avoid:
Wukong – He crits big numbers but is too RNG dependent in the early game. Although he’s good late game, his team usually never gets there.
You’re the glue of the team, you’re what keeps the team together and give them space to deal damage. You provide peel for your carries and provide vision for your team (there are no wards in this game so you're a human ward). While the role seems insignificant at first, it’s no doubt one of the most important roles in the game. Ideally you tap into this role only after getting a good grasp of other roles.
Oh, and BUY THE GOD DAMN SUPPORT ITEM. It gives you extra gold and allows you to soak minion gold/exp WITHOUT leeching from your carries.
Recommended starting heroes:
Alice (Free) – One of the strongest supports in high elo right now, she’s kind of useless pre-4 but her ult counters pretty much all of the meta heroes at the moment. You literally just place it in the middle of the team fight and watch your team demolish the opponents, especially in the late game.
Ormarr (Free) – He’s a free hero that’s relatively tanky with a ton of cc in his kit, he can be very aggressive in the early game and can be very oppressive if played correctly.
Thane (5,888) – The tankiest hero in the game, he also has a ridiculous amount of CC with his S1 push and can turn the tide of the team fight when used correctly.
Heroes to work towards:
Zip (18,999) – The most broken hero in the game, if not banned he’s a MUST pick in high elo.
Krizzix (18,999) – One of the best initiators in the game with his S2 & invisibility, he also provides a ton of vision for the team with his ult
Baldum (18,999) – IMO one of the scariest supports when played to his full potential. He’s very tanky, has ton of cc, and has a very game deciding ult.
Heroes to avoid:
Peura – She had her moment a few patches ago, but the meta of babysitting the ADC is long gone. Since there are no wards in this game, supports NEED to roam and provide vision for the team in high elo. She’s a fine hero in low elo, but I’d recommend to avoid her in order to not pick up bad habits & get used to roaming.
Xeniel – I hate to say this as he’s one of my favorite heroes, but avoid in soloQ. People will flame you when you don’t ult, and will run away from your ult when you do ult them. You can literally do no right with this hero unless you’re actively communicating with your team.
Grakk – IMO new players should avoid this hero. New players often get so fixated on hooking people that they end up forgetting what a support SHOULD be doing.
Rouie - She's one of the most broken supports in the right hands and the right team, you won't have that in the beginning so avoid until you're in relatively high elo.


Towers: This should be obvious, but AoV is a tower pushing game. The objective is to destroy towers which leads to the nexus/core. There are 9 towers to push in total with 3 towers in each lane, your minions get buffed and become “super” minions after you push down all of the towers in a lane. They get a further buff once you push down all 9 towers although that’s not required for destroying the nexus (you only need one lane of towers to be pushed to reach the Nexus) although it does make things easier.
Vision bird: Minor objective on the sidelanes, but it's something that you should go for whenever possible. Once killed, the vision bird turns into a vision orb thingy that walks around the enemy jungle in a specific pattern and gives you vision throughout their jungle. This is very useful in detecting ganks, and determining the position of the opponent jungler (although the jungler could still avoid being seen by not getting caught by the orb).
Abyssal Dragon: This is the first major objective that’s contested by both teams, it spawns at the 2:00 mark. Killing the dragon provides each member of the team 50 gold each (correct me if I’m wrong), and extra EXP.
Spirit Sentinel: The spirit senteniel spawns at the 1:50 mark, it’s weaker than the Abyssal Dragon but grants the individual killer with a HP recovery buff & movement speed buff. This is good for the jungler to get if your team is not positioned to contest the Abyssal Dragon.
Dark Slayer: Spawns at the 7 minute mark, provides your team with some HP/MP recovery buff but most important lets you summon a Drake within the next 60 seconds. The Drake buffs all of your minions and can attack towers outside of tower range making a very valuable tool to push down towers. Using the Drake correctly can almost guarantee a T1 tower (high ground) for your team, and often times decide the game.
Enraged Abyssal Dragon: Spawns at the 15 minute mark. Killing the Dragon will give you a buff depending on your role, but most importantly the Dragon drops the "Dark blessing" (you pick this up by standing on it) which allows you to avoid fatal damage, kind of like the Death Sickle item.

General Etiquettes

Don’t Flame
Don’t be one of those players that spend more time on the keyboard than playing the game, if you're one of these people then go hang out in the all chat with the rest of the virgins looking to get cat-fished. Every second you waste typing in chat is a wasted opportunity that could’ve been used to turn the game around. Be nice in chat and don’t insult people – encouragement often has a much better effect than flaming. People tend to become defensive when they get flamed (even when you’re right), what happens when people get defensive? They start wasting time typing instead of playing. So instead of 0-4 now they’re more likely to go 0-7, or worse they start intentionally trolling/afking in a game that was probably winnable. Lets avoid these situation by being the big brained people that we are. A quick “lets get slayer” or “play safe” is fine, don’t go insulting people and their mothers.
Don’t complain about your team in all chat
If there’s one thing more annoying than flamers is people that flame in all chat. Nobody on the other team cares, and nobody sympathizes with you. In fact, you look even more like a clown than the 0-8 Valhein more often than not.
Don’t take Jungle buffs unless you’re jungling
This isn’t ML, don’t take your jungler’s buffs especially in the early game. Your jungler won’t reach level 4 if you took a camp before his first clear, this puts your team at a disadvantage because he won’t have his ultimate before the first team fight. There is more gold in lane in this game, so clear your minion waves. You can take a small camp close to lane here and there, but don’t take buffs without asking. The only time you don’t have to ask is if your jungler already has the buff from invading the enemy jungle, otherwise a simple “can I have blue” will do. Most junglers that don’t need it will be happy to give it to you unless you’re feeding hard.
Ping "Enemy Missing" if the enemy is missing
It's technically their fault if they get caught, but just do it so your stupid teammates don't flame you and you don't end up in a typing war which could lose you a winnable game.
Don't take your laner's waves unless he has no intention of coming back or it's crashing into the tower
This will put your laner behind in gold because he would've missed a full minion wave. The only time taking a free wave is okay is if the said laner has no intention of coming back (i.e on the other side of the map or dead) or if the minion wave is crashing into the tower. If the laner is walking back into his lane and the minion wave isn't crashing into the tower, don't take it.
It's okay to share minions more often than not since sharing will give you more TOTAL gold (but less individual gold), but that's a story for another time.
Don't surrender as soon as you die
This is a personal pet peeve but just because you smooth brained a teamfight doesn't mean your team is also being smooth brained. The most annoying thing that comes up in a team fight is the surrender screen because it takes up space and blocks vision. The stupid decline button is also near important items such as Arctic orb/Bow of Slaughter and people with fat fingers (like me) can mistakenly press them leading to a loss.

How to improve?

This is a very good guide to improving at the game although slightly outdated since nobody plays Abyssal Clash anymore
Here's a couple of things that I would add:
1) Upgrade your arcanas to level 2
- Upgrade your arcanas to level 2 first, determine the role you want to play using the free heroes mentioned above, and then work towards level 3 arcanas.
- Level 2 arcanas are more cost effective and can be upgraded using the free arcana coins the game provides for free whereas level 3 arcanas will cost gold. You should determine the role/heroes you want to play/main before investing into level 3 arcanas.
- You can use gems on double gold cards to earn gold faster to complete your arcana set and/or buy new heroes
2) Practice last hitting
Last hitting a minion gives you 40% extra gold, this slowly adds up to your advantage.
3) Don't play support right off the bat
Support roles are one of the most important roles in the game, but you shouldn't main support RIGHT away.
Think of it this way, how can you support your carry when you don't know how to carry? How can you be a good support when you don't even know what your carry wants to do? The support role is VERY macro eccentric, you have to have a good understanding of every role before jumping into the support role.
Once you got the carry role down, support will be a lot easier because you already know what you want and don't want your supports to do.
I'm a support main personally, but I started as an ADC/DS lane player. From there, I was able to find out what things I want my support to do and what things I don't want my support to do. After playing with some good supports and keeping a track of their habits, I was easily able to switch over to the support role. If you look at the best support players today, almost none of them started as support players.
4) Don't "fill the gap"
When you're just starting out, try to avoid "filling the gap" and try to spam one or two roles as much as possible.
But why? Isn't it good to be flexible?
Yes and no.
Let me give an example:
Lets say it takes 500 games to get to masters spamming a single role (theoretical number), at 5 games a day it’ll take you 100 days or just a little bit over 3 months. However, if you played a different role every game you played because you chose to fill, you would only have 100 games on every role after the same time and still be stuck in Plat or something. Keep in mind that the learning in this game is NOT linear, other roles become increasingly easier to learn after you’ve mastered one because every role is connected. So instead of taking another 500 games to learn a second role, it might only take 350 and so forth. At that point, you’re also play much higher quality competition, so you’ll improve at a faster rate as well.
With that said, you should still learn a secondary role that you can fall back on for ranked just in case your main role got taken.
5) Move on to heroes with more upside
Obviously if you’re playing to have fun, do whatever you want this won’t apply to you. But if you want to improve at this game there is absolutely zero reason to have 500 games on Valhein/Arthur. Those are fine heroes to test the waters with but it doesn’t take more than 20 games to know their kit inside out. Once you’ve decided on a role and have tested the waters with a somewhat “easy” hero, you’ll want to start to move on to hardestronger heroes with more carry potential. For example, let’s say you’ve decided to play the DS laner role, you’ll eventually want to move away from Arthur into slightly more mechanically difficult heroes like Lubu, Yena, Riktor, Florentino who have much more upside and bigger carry potential.
Only a handful of heroes need to build the same items every game, most heroes have tons of flexibility in their builds. Enemy doesn't have a lot of cc/magic damage? You can build Armor boots instead of Guilded. Enemy has tons of magic damage? Grab that early Medallion of Troy. Enemy has a ton of life steal like Kilgroth/Lubu? Grab Anti Heal.
7) Be Aggressive (in casual)
Note that being aggressive is NOT the same as being stupid. Being aggressive means taking calculated risks to outplay the enemy, for example if you see 4 people bottom and one top, you cut off the enemy top lane minion wave & invade their top side jungle. Being stupid is invading the top side jungle when you don't see any enemies on the map and end up getting collapsed on.
Being aggressive is going 1v2 with your Florentino when you have a 1k gold advantage over them. Being stupid is going 1v2 with your Valhein while behind in gold.
Be aggressive, don't be stupid.
If you made a stupid play, at least learn from it so you don't int next time.
8) Play with other people
For some stupid ass reason people like to gloat about playing soloQ, okay chill out we get it you have no friends and live in your mom's basement here's a cookie. If you want to further improve at the game, you'll want to start playing with other good players preferably over voice chat. This will drastically improve your macro sense of the game, and force you to get in a good habit of calling out misses, calling out flickepurify timers, and timing the enemy buffs.
Yes, look at the god damn minimap.

Shurko - Gaming genius/warlord/pharaoh/commander on his soloq adventures. Good mix of entertainment and quality gameplay.
Zane - You're going to go back by half a year plus to find his old AoV videos, but most of them have commentary and are still viable in today's meta macro wise. He was the best jungleplayer in NA/EU.
Rush - One of the best junglers in the world, he does a lot of troll builds for fun as well, so make sure to identify those before blindly following
HAK - One of the best mids IMO.
These are the ones I pay attention to mainly, let me know if there are any other good ones and I'll add.
Oh and of course we can't forget our very own InfamousAoV who's doing a giveaway on his channel right now, make sure to check him out and support.

2020.06.16 19:27 Joe_Cyber Involta MSP Lawsuit Redux - Update

Because so many people keep asking for updates on this case via direct message and chat, I thought I’d post an update here. If you’re already familiar with the background allegations of this case, scroll down to the updates:
Background allegations from Boardman’s original complaint:-------------------------------------------------------
“Boardman retained Involta to provide various information technology ("IT") services including, but not necessarily limited to, private servers, managed servers, managed firewall, internet security, compliance, storage, backup, remote desktop, network, managed WAN, and other services”
“In or about late January 2018, Boardman experienced the Security Breach of its Outlook email account by malicious external hackers with criminal intent. Internal emails to accounting staff, along with modified excel spreadsheets and files, were redirected by the malicious hackers. Multiple fake invoices were provided to Boardman's accounting staff by the malicious hackers with instructions to pay fake invoices. Those invoices were paid to fake sources and, as a result, over $1.7 million in Boardman's funds were stolen.” (emphasis added)
“When Boardman brought this hacking scheme to Involta's attention, Involta failed to take appropriate action. When the incident was reported to Involta, the ticket received only a "Medium" priority rating. The day after the incident was first reported, Involta insisted that the breach had never taken place and accordingly closed the ticket.”
Here are some interesting allegations found in the complaint with a few points to consider:
"At various times Boardman has provided feedback indicating that Boardman is considered to be "AT RISK" according to AV Defender. This continued to be the case following the incident until at least... 3 months after the incident took place."
- If true, this looks like a big oops by Involta. Maybe Involta will have documentation as to why this indicator was not a issue... we'll see.
"Involta had a duty to exercise the knowledge, skill, and ability ordinarily exercised by members of the IT profession under similar circumstance"
- Here, Boardman is making the claim that Involta is guilty of "professional negligence and malpractice." In short, by being an MSP, Involta should be held to a higher standard of reasonable care, even if not detailed to do so in the contract.
"At no time relevant hereto did Involta provide any pro-active advice, suggestions and/or recommendations regarding training, potential concerns or any other topics regarding security or protection."
- Ergo, I believe that EVERY MSP should at least offer employee training to client's staff. Whether you're a reseller or a native creator, C...Y...A....!
- In the same vein, tell your clients to buy cyber insurance. If they have a financial cushion to fall back on, they're less likely to come after you. Also, you can't patch stupid. People will always be the weakest link. Don't let user stupidity at a client come back to bite you.
-In response to these allegations, Involta appeared to deny all allegations made by Boardman.
Update: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On May 6th, Judge D’Apolito and Magistrate Melone ordered the following:
-Boardman and Involta shall complete all fact discovery by September 8th, 2020.
-Mediation will be held by on October 13th, 2020 at 0930. At the mediation, both parties are required to attend with their attorneys and insurance representative. In addition, each party is required to submit a mediation statement with concise answers to the following:
I. Summary of material facts;
  1. Summary oflegal issues;
  2. Status of Discovery;
  3. List special damages and summarize injuries or damages;
  4. Settlement attempts to date including demands and offers;
  5. List any subrogation claims and the dollar amount of each;
  6. Estimate the number days needed to try the case;
  7. State any specific or unusual problems for trial of case.
It does not appear that this is any sort of binding meeting so its most likely a fact finding mission for the judge to expedite everything; possibly due to courts being shutdown/impacted during Covid.
-A pre-trial will be held on October 13th, 2020 at 1100.
-Dispositive Motions shall be filed by January 29, 2021 (a dispositive motion is a motion seeking a trial court order entirely disposing of all or part of the claims in favor of the moving party without need for further trial court proceedings.)
-The jury trial/bench trial will be held on May 11, 2021 (yes, May of 2021. Recall this suit was served on January 30, 2020.)
So what can we glean from the above? A few items:
  1. Make sure your client have cyber insurance. When losses happen, you don’t want them looking at you to make them whole again. Defer the monetary losses to their own insurers! You and your clients are welcome to download my latest cyber book for free at www.cplbrokers.com/book to assist them.
  2. It’s easy to get wrapped around the specific allegations made by Boardman, but we don’t have a lot of info from Involta on how they plan to deny these allegations in court. As a rule, we should presume innocence, but it looks like Involta could have a very hard time in front of a jury.
  3. On that same note, this is simply bad publicity for Involta. I can’t imagine how many current and potential clients have caught wind of this lawsuit. Will Boardman’s allegations encourage them to find services at a different provider? While it would be impossible to have hard numbers on this phenomenon, I would have to assume that the answer is yes. Will competitors reference this ongoing lawsuit to gain or retain business? Again, I would have to presume that they would. (Whether that is ethical or legal is another discussion.)
  4. If you’ve never been on the wrong end of a lawsuit, it is hard to express how draining the process will be. In this case, Involta’s management could have this lawsuit hanging over their heads for almost 1 ½ years before the trial even begins. They were served roughly a year after Boardman alleges their breach and losses occurred. All told, this could easily be a 3-4 year nightmare for Involta. How long will the trial take? Hard to say, but with almost $2,000,000 on the line, it could get ugly.
  5. Let’s presume that Involta loses all or some of the roughly $2,000,000 claim made by Boardman. Also, they could spend well into the six-figures for defense expenses fighting this lawsuit. How much insurance does Involta have? How will this effect their insurance renewals moving forward? As a baseline, losses tend to stay on the books for 5 years with insurance companies. Ergo, it could be an additional five years of increased premiums, assuming they are able to even get quotes from other insurers or remain with their current insurer.

2020.06.15 20:17 LucasReadsPosts A bunch of manga I would recommend to someone new to the scene


So this was originally posted by me in a discord server I own... It was really hard to reformat everything.
This is just a bunch of manga and like and think you and/or people you know should read, there is no particular order just read through my recommendations and check out what interests you.
(MOST OF THIS LIST WAS CUT BECAUSE OF THE WORD LIMIT!!! If you want all the 101 manga that I recommended then pm me.)
Komi can't communicate - Oda Tomahito The journey to 100 friends begins with a single conversation. Socially anxious high school student Shoko Komi’s greatest dream is to make some friends, but everyone at school mistakes her crippling social anxiety for cool reserve! With the whole student body keeping their distance and Komi unable to utter a single word, friendship might be forever beyond her reach. Timid Tadano is a total wallflower, and that’s just the way he likes it. But all that changes when he finds himself alone in a classroom on the first day of high school with the legendary Komi. He quickly realizes she isn’t aloof—she’s just super awkward. Now he’s made it his mission to help her on her quest to make 100 friends!
Kanojo, Okarishimasu - Miyajima Reiji Kazuya Kinoshita has broken up with his girlfriend Mami Nanami after dating for about a month. He uses an online app to rent a girlfriend named Chizuru Mizuhara, a beautiful and attractive girl. However, because she appears to be too perfect, he writes her a low rating, but then Chizuru berates him for that and reveals she is meaner than he expected. However, when Kazuya's grandmother collapses in the hospital, he brings her along and the grandmother is smitten with how great she is. Kazuya continues renting Chizuru in order to keep up appearances with his family and friends, but things get complicated when they discover they are next-door apartment neighbors and attend the same college. Later, other girls from the girlfriend business also join in dating and showing interest in Kazuya.
Please put these on, Takamine-san - Hiragi Yuuichi The student council president, Takamine-san, is at the topmost of the school hierarchy, a god! One day, Shirota accidentally saw Takamine-san's naked breasts. From then on, his school life changed. "Put my panties on for me." Shirota has ended up in predicament of Takamine's pink-colored favors.
Chainsaw Man - Fujimo Tatsuki The story is set in a world where Devils cause harm to humans, which makes them a target for extermination. Denji is a young, depressed man who has sold several of his organs and works as a tree cutter and devil hunter to pay back his deceased father's debt to loan sharks. Denji owns a dog (that is also a devil) called Pochita, that has the characteristic features of a chainsaw and is used by Denji as such for his work. Humans can make deals (contracts) with devils. After returning home from killing a tomato devil, Denji gets called by the Yakuza to go into a building to kill another devil, However, as it turns out, the Yakuza called Denji to allow a zombie devil to kill Denji, and in return, the zombie devil would give the yakuza more power, which would let them make more money. After Denji is killed and Pochita is severely injured by said devil, Pochita merges with Denji, (because of a deal Denji made with Pochita when they first met) and as a result, Denji's wounds heal and gets revived as a half-human, half-devil, acquiring Pochita's chainsaw ability. Denji then uses said ability to kill the zombie devil that initially killed him. After killing said devil, a team of governmental devil hunters arrives on the scene, and after discovering that the devil was already killed by Denji, one of its members persuade Denji to become part of the governmental devil hunting organization the team belongs to.
Berserk - Kentaro Miura His name is Guts, the Black Swordsman, a feared warrior spoken of only in whispers. Bearer of a gigantic sword, an iron hand, and the scars of countless battles and tortures, his flesh is also indelibly marked with The Brand, an unholy symbol that draws the forces of darkness to him and dooms him as their sacrifice. But Guts won't take his fate lying down; he'll cut a crimson swath of carnage through the ranks of the damned - and anyone else foolish enough to oppose him! Accompanied by Puck the Elf, more an annoyance than a companion, Guts relentlessly follows a dark, bloodstained path that leads only to death...or vengeance.
Blue period. - Yamaguchi Tsubasa Second-year high school student Yataro Yaguchi is bored with his normal life. He studies well and plays around with his friends, but in truth, he does not enjoy either of those activities. Bound by norms, he secretly envies those who do things differently. That is until he discovers the joy of drawing. When he sees a painting made by a member of the Art Club, Yataro becomes fascinated with the colors used in it. Later, in an art exercise, he tries to convey his language without words but instead through painting. After that experience, Yataro finds himself so invested in the art that he decides that it is what he wants to do for a living. But there stand multiple obstacles in his way: his parents who are hesitant over his unique choices, his more experienced peers, and the study of a subject much deeper than he initially expected.

Through these exploits, the true nature of the world is slowly pieced together.

Yokoi often finds herself getting reluctantly interested in his games, even though they always seem to end up getting HER in trouble with the teacher!
Ajin - Sakurai Gamon Seventeen years ago, mysterious immortal soldiers known as "divine warriors" appeared on the battlefields of Africa. These life forms later became known as "Ajin," or demi-humans, and were considered to be one of the greatest discoveries of mankind. The government declared their existence to be compatible with humans; however, it is rumored that they instead offer bounties for captured Ajin to secretly perform inhumane experiments on these rare beings. Kei Nagai, an apathetic high school student, is studying to become a doctor and only wishes to live a normal life. However, this simple dream is shattered after he suddenly gets into a deadly traffic accident. Reviving at the scene, he is immediately labeled as an Ajin by bounty-hungry witnesses. Unable to understand his immortality or prove his innocence, he starts to live his life on the run and fights for survival. He barely escapes the government's reach when a group of anarchistic Ajin contacts Kei, asking him to join their forces to retaliate against the government. But who is Kei's real enemy, and which side will he take when it comes down to humans versus Ajin?
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations - Ikemoto Mikio Naruto Uzumaki has finally achieved his dream of becoming Hokage, the leader of the Hidden Leaf Village that he spent his teenage years fighting to protect. Naruto and his peers now live in a world of peace, working hard to uphold an international truce built on goodwill and diplomacy. However, this stasis comes at a personal cost for the aging hero. Naruto and the shinobi he grew up alongside find that working to upkeep the neutral world takes them away from their families, and even the legendary warriors of Naruto's generation must contend with being mediocre parents to their bitter children, including his own son Boruto. Boruto Uzumaki faces a world completely unlike that of his father, finding unique trouble in the distance between the two. Contending with a society that heaps an unbearable load of pressure on his shoulders over his status as the Hokage's son, Boruto carves his own path through the world, fighting to make a name for himself as evil forces threaten to shatter the peace his father helped create.
Fist of the North star - Buronson The year is 199X. The Earth has been devastated by nuclear war. The seas have dried up and the land is cracked and desolate. Most living things on the planet have become extinct apart from the human race. In this new age violence rules as civilization is lost and the strong rule the weak in a world where food and water are the only things of value. At this time a mysterious man named Kenshiro appears with his deadly martial art, the 2000 years old Hokuto Shinken. With his deadly style eliminating evil is he the savior of the new era?
Jujutsu Kaisen - Gege Akutami Hidden in plain sight, an age-old conflict rages on. Supernatural monsters known as "Curses" terrorize humanity from the shadows, and powerful humans known as "Jujutsu" sorcerers use mystical arts to exterminate them. When high school student Yuuji Itadori finds a dried-up finger of the legendary Curse Sukuna Ryoumen, he suddenly finds himself joining this bloody conflict. Attacked by a Curse attracted to the finger's power, Yuuji makes a reckless decision to protect himself, gaining the power to combat Curses in the process but also unwittingly unleashing the malicious Sukuna into the world once more. Though Yuuji can control and confine Sukuna to his own body, the Jujutsu world classifies Yuuji as a dangerous, high-level Curse who must be exterminated. Detained and sentenced to death, Yuuji meets Satoru Gojou—a teacher at Jujutsu High School—who explains that despite his imminent execution, there is an alternative for him. Being a rare vessel to Sukuna, if Yuuji were to die, then Sukuna would perish too. Therefore, if Yuuji were to consume the many other remnants of Sukuna, then Yuuji's subsequent execution would truly eradicate the malicious demon. Taking up this chance to make the world safer and live his life for a little longer, Yuuji enrolls in Jujutsu High, jumping headfirst into a harsh and unforgiving battlefield.
Mata, Kotaomou - Roku Tachibana "A one-way route." A weird strange feeling. A love story about the girl who was always confessed to by her childhood friend, how will she reply, from a long time confession?!
Poputepipikku - Ookawa Bukubu Two high school girls, the short and exceptionally quick to anger Popuko, and the tall and much more calm Pipimi, do insane things and swear like sailors in this absurdist comedy filled with references and meta-humor.
Saint Onii-san - Nakamura Hikaru Saint☆Oniisan is slice-of-life or divine-life, the tale of Jesus and Buddha as they try to experience the modern world, in this case, Japan. The manga places a funny twist on religion, attitudes, culture, and customs in Japan through the eyes of Jesus and Buddha. You see Jesus and Buddha experiencing Asakusa, public baths, theme parks, and the internet. Throughout the manga, we get a little history of their divine greatness only to see their apparent insignificance in modern Japanese society. Suffice to say, before people can recognize that they're actually Jesus and Buddha, people think of them as someone who looks like Johnny Depp or a guy with a button on his forehead. For real.
Ane Naru Mono - Iida Pochi A heart-warming story of how a neglected orphan, Yuu, has been blessed with the offering of a free wish by a demon, and he simply asks her to become his older sister...
To you, the Immortal - Ooima Yoshitoki It, a mysterious immortal being, is sent to the Earth with no emotions nor identity. However, It is able to take the shape of those around that have a strong impetus. At first, It is a sphere. Then, It imitates the form of a rock. As the temperature drops and snowfalls atop the moss, It inherits the moss. When an injured, a lone wolf comes limping by and lays down to die, It takes on the form of the animal. Finally, It gains consciousness and begins to traverse the empty tundra until It meets a boy. The boy lives alone in a ghost town, which the adults abandoned long ago in search of the paradise said to exist far beyond the endless sea of white tundra. However, their efforts were for naught, and now the boy is in a critical state. Acquiring the form of the boy, It sets off on a never-ending journey, in search of new experiences, places, and people.
Ore Monogatari!! - Kawahara Kazune Gouda Takeo is a freshman in high school. (Both estimates) Weight: 120kg, Height: 2 meters. He spends his days peacefully with his super-popular-with-girls, yet insensitive childhood friend, Sunakawa.

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san - Yamamoto Souchirou With a smirk, the mischievous middle school boy Nishikata glances over at Takagi, the girl seated next to him in class. He has just devised a master plan to finally get back at her for all the merciless teasing inflicted upon him. As he is about to set his plan into motion, Takagi intervenes with a single comment that halts Nishikata right in his tracks. She had turned the tables on him yet again. "If you blush, you lose." That has been the unwritten rule set between the two ever since they encountered one another in middle school. Day after day, loss after loss, Nishikata strives to see Takagi red with embarrassment, but his futile attempts are only met by further ridicule. Beyond this vicious cycle of trying to outwit one another, will their relationship ever evolve?

Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san - Honda Honda is a skeleton, but more importantly, he is a bookseller.

From the drama of receiving new titles without their bonus material to the struggle of providing quality service to customers who speak a different language, the work of a skeleton bookseller never ends. Nevertheless, despite the hardships he faces, Honda thoroughly enjoys his job and strives to bring the best book selections and service to his customers.
Act-Age - Matsuki Tatsuya Ever since she was a child, Kei Yonagi has been attracted to the idea of acting, as she has always attentively watched how actions and emotions differ depending on the type of character portrayed. Now a teenager, she is broke and is the only one able to financially support her young siblings. She starts auditioning for any role possible, without much success. Her luck begins to change when Sumiji Kuroyama, a renowned director, sees Yonagi's performance and is amazed by her ability to immerse herself in the role—the so-called method acting. Although she is a diamond in the rough, if she keeps using the same technique over and over, it could lead to her being severely damaged. So, he makes the decision to help polish her, giving Yonagi the opportunity she needs. However, the road ahead of her is far from easy, and she will need to adapt to overcome the various challenges that come her way.
The world of moral reversal - Amahara In our current society, most porn consumers are males, we are the ones who think with our d*ck's many times, we worship the female body, and our society, products, advertisements and many other things are centered around that. But, what if it wasn't that way? What if, instead of men being the ones controlled by their sexual urges, women were the ones who bought porn magazines and had the most interest in sex? What if the moral standards between men and women were reversed?
Please don't bully me, Nagatoro - 774 High schooler Hayase Nagatoro loves to spend her free time doing one thing, and that is to bully her Senpai! After Nagatoro and her friends stumble upon the aspiring artist's drawings, they find enjoyment in mercilessly bullying the timid Senpai. Nagatoro resolves to continue her cruel game and visits him daily so that she can force Senpai into doing whatever interests her at the time, especially if it makes him uncomfortable. Slightly aroused by and somewhat fearful of Nagatoro, Senpai is constantly roped into her antics as his interests, hobbies, appearance, and even personality are used against him as she entertains herself at his expense. As time goes on, Senpai realizes that he doesn't dislike Nagatoro's presence, and the two of them develop an uneasy friendship as one patiently puts up with the antics of the other.
Gal Gohan - Taiyou Marii Home Economics Teacher, Shinji Yabe, is asked by the biggest gal in school, Miku Okazaki, to help her "bake cookies to give to the teachers." The principal told her to do this after she flunked every subject and makeup-class they put her in. He gets her to successfully finish a batch of cookies after several mishaps and is touched by his students' glee over her success. He decides to start a cooking club after this experience to get more time and connection with his students.

The club teacher, however, notices Smile's talent and tries to make him gain some sportive tenacity.
Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei - Kumeta Kouji Nozomu Itoshiki is depressed. Very depressed. He’s certifiably suicidal, but he’s also the beloved schoolteacher of a class of unique students, each charming in her own way: The stalker. The shut-in. The obsessive-compulsive. The girl who comes to class every day with strange bruises. And Kafuka, the most optimistic girl in the world, who knows that every cloud has a silver lining. For all of them, it’s a special time, when the right teacher can have a lasting positive effect on their lives. But is that teacher Itoshiki, a.k.a. Zetsubou-sensei, who just wants to find the perfect place to die?
69) Gantz - Oku Hiroyu Lonely high school student Kei Kurono isolates himself out of a growing cynicism toward his fellow man and the cruelty they are capable of enacting. One day, while waiting to take the subway to school, Kei's classmate Masaru Katou leaps onto the tracks in an effort to save a drunk man. Driven by an uncharacteristic desire to rescue someone else, Kei follows Katou down into danger. While successful in saving him, the two boys are killed by the train. Kei wakes up beside Katou in an apartment full of strangers and furnished by a giant black orb with a glass-like outer surface. After finding out that everyone in the room has recently died, words appear on the black ball tasking them with killing a strange creature. The ball equips Kei and the others with power suits and mysterious guns before sending them off to collect this bizarre bounty. Although Kei discovers the mission to be far more deadly than originally suspected, he manages to survive. He is teleported back to the apartment where he and the other survivors are rewarded point values according to their actions in battle by the black sphere, which a fellow survivor says is called "Gantz." Despite his death earlier that day, Kei is granted the ability to return to his daily life with one condition: he can be uprooted from his day at any time and summoned back to the apartment, where Gantz will task him and other recently deceased with the assassination of another target. While Katou dreads the inevitable return to Gantz, Kei finds himself living for the sole purpose of carrying out these missions. Thriving in the heat of battle and learning to care about himself and his comrades, Kei faces escalating monstrous threats that begin to bleed out into his normal life outside of Gantz.

As he struggles through a mundane life plagued by hallucinations, he comes to realize that his relationship with his girlfriend isn't that great, suspecting that she may be cheating on him with her ex-boyfriend. After confronting her about the possible affair, however, Hideo feels bad about his inquisition and decides to visit her house to apologize. But the world as he knows is about to be overturned.

However, once circumstances present her an opportunity to escape, Lucy, corrupted by the confinement and torture, unleashes a torrent of bloodshed as she escapes her captors. During her breakout, she receives a crippling head injury that leaves her with a split personality: someone with the mentality of a harmless child possessing limited speech capacity. In this state of instability, she stumbles upon two college students, Kouta and his cousin Yuka, who unknowingly take an injured fugitive into their care, unaware of her murderous tendencies. This act of kindness will change their lives, as they soon find themselves dragged into the shadowy world of government secrecy and conspiracy.
Tomo-chan is a girl! - Yanagama Fumita Tomo Aizawa and Junichirou "Jun" Kubota are the tightest bros you'd ever see. They roughhouse and spar, but through thick and thin, they've got each other's back. Yet, there's just one small problem: Tomo is in love with Jun! Since she was young, tomboyish Tomo has been just another one of the guys; due to his extreme muscle-brained nature, Jun doesn't notice any of her advances—not even when she explicitly confesses. To add insult to injury, for the longest time, he didn't even realize that she was a girl. Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko! follows the comedic hijinks of Tomo and her friends as she tries to catch Jun's eye and escape the infamous bro zone.
High score girl - Oshikiri Rensuke Haruo "Beastly Fingers" Yaguchi rules the arcade gaming scene, but beneath his famous identity as a pro gamer is a plain sixth-grader with an uneventful life. Neither popular, smart, nor athletic, he excels in only one thing: video games. Haruo would rather spend hours at the local arcade honing his gaming skills than take his life and academics seriously. One day, Haruo meets his match in fellow classmate Akira Oono. Akira is not the type of person to frequent an arcade: she has perfect grades, is well-loved, and comes from a wealthy background. Even so, not only is she able to score a 29-game win streak, but she also manages to beat Haruo seven times in a row. Eager to end her domination, Haruo duels Akira in Street Fighter 2 and resorts to underhanded tactics—which earns him a slap in the face from the shy girl. This encounter starts a strange and rocky relationship between the two rival gamers.
Inuyashiki - Oku Hiroya Inuyashiki has a family, a wife, and two kids, none of which care about him. When he learns that he has only three months to live, he realizes that the only one who will miss him is his dog. Shortly after this realization, he is killed in a crash landing by aliens. He is rebuilt by them as a machine with a human exterior. How will his life change now that he isn't human?
Gambling Apocalypse Kaiji - Nobuyuki Fukumoto Itou Kaiji is a bum who steals car emblems and slashes tires on what seems to be a regular basis. This routine changes one day when he is paid a visit by a man in a trench-coat. Once the two get talking, it seems that the visitor (Calling himself Endou) is a debt collector. The reason for his visit is an unpaid loan that Kaiji had previously co-signed for a work-mate (Furuhata Takeshi). The original loan was 30000 yen and once Takeshi had disappeared, the loan then fell on Kaiji. Kaiji is then told of a way to clear the interest compounded debt (which stood at 3,850,000 yen), which involved getting on a boat with others in his position. Once on the boat, the debtors would then have to gamble with loaned money, which would end with a few winning, and others getting into deeper debt and having to work to pay off their debts. After some coercing Kaiji accepts a position on the boat, in order to clear himself and make a bit of money as well...
Hataraku Maou-sama - Wagahara Satoshi Devil King Sadao is only one step away from conquering the world when he is beaten by Hero Emilia and forced to drift to the other world: modern-day Tokyo. As "conquering the world" are the only skills the Devil King possesses—and are obviously unnecessary in his new situation—he must work as a fast-food employee to pay for his living expenses!
Bartender - Joh Araki A genius bartender known as Ryuu Sasakura helps customers by mixing the perfect cocktail for them.
Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai - Torako Yuuta Togashi is a high school freshman who chose a new school far away from his middle school, due to his mortifying past there. Yuuta was what people would classify as a chuunibyou—a "disease" that causes people to fantasize about themselves and their surroundings—with him using the alias of "Dark Flame Master." He enters high school looking to start anew or, at least, that is what he hoped for. Everything had been going smoothly, and Yuuta was relishing the feeling of normal high school life until he met Rikka Takanashi—who despite being a high schooler, is still a chuunibyou—subsequently crumbling Yuuta's short-lived regular high school experience. It would seem that his chuunibyou past is not leaving him just yet. Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! follows Yuuta and Rikka's relationship as they experience an eccentric high school journey, with chuunibyou constantly haunting Yuuta.
Kanojo wa Otousan - Kawada Daichi Two miracles are happening to the high schooler Naoyuki Ono's life. The first is him going out with the beauty of his school, Shiori Sakura. The second is that she turns into her thick-headed father if Ono touches her. The cute girlfriend and her terrifying father are stuck in one body. Even if he wants to touch her, he can't. And so, the curtain rises on this father-daughter fusion love comedy!
Happiness - Oshimi Shuuzo Makoto Okazaki is an unpopular high school student who is frequently bullied by some of his classmates, being forced to act as their errand boy. But his life drastically changes one night when he is attacked by a mysterious girl, who plunges her teeth into his neck and begins drinking his blood. Upon satisfying her craving, she offers Makoto a simple choice: become like her or die.
No longer heroine - Koda Momoko This could be any girl. Imagine being a heroine of a love story. Hatori also believed that one day she would get married to her childhood friend, Rita. But that's not how the world works! This is a hilarious comedy that honestly paints a painful unrequited love story of this young girl!
Blood on the Tracks - Shuzo Oshimi Seiichi Osabe is an only child living a mundane life. Just like any middle schooler, he has friends, a crush on a girl, and loving parents. However, Seiichi's mother is extremely overprotective, which causes others to view him as a mama's boy. Although he doesn't consider her behavior to be unusual, a certain incident starts to open his eyes to just how dangerous her affection is. As Seiichi tries to break free from her grasp, he learns that his life isn't as normal as he thought.
Kakushigoto: My dad's secret ambition - Kouji Kumeta "We will open the curtain back in time, to the story of one lone manga creator." This story is about Gotou Kakushi, an artist who draws a somewhat vulgar manga and tries to hide it for the sake of his daughter, Hime. A father-daughter tale of love and laughter.
Highschool of the Dead - Satou Daisuke On a normal day, mindless, flesh-eating zombies suddenly appear and send society into anarchy. In Fujimi Academy, second-year high school student Takashi Komuro witnesses these beasts' murderous nature firsthand. He flees to the roof with friends Rei Miyamoto and Hisashi Igou, only to discover the harrowing reality of their zombie-overrun world. In High School of the Dead, Takashi and Rei must now rely on a band of eccentric individuals composed of Saeko Busujima, the kendo club president; Saya Takagi, a wealthy genius; Shizuka Marikawa, their voluptuous school nurse; and Kouta Hirano, a firearm-obsessed otaku. Together they must defy all odds and survive against the horrifying undead.

2020.06.15 12:44 surfergrl89 Jeg har oplevet racisme og diskrimination i Danmark. Er der måske andre?

Jeg er normalt kun en lurker her på Denmark; og kun har postet et par gang, når jeg har spørgsmål om kultur, politik osv. De sidste uger har jeg været skuffet over, hvordan medierne, sociale medierne og Denmark har reageret til racisme-debatten - ikke fordi jeg er uenig med jer, som laver sjov med "venstrefløjen", den sorte kvinde hvis navn jeg ikke kan huske, or whatever. Men fordi jeg synes, nogle af de jokes I har lavet faktisk er ganske racistisk (uanset hvor meget vedkommende har fortjent at blive kritiseret/lavet sjov med), og at jeg synes, det er foruroligende, at nogle få faktisk påstår, racisme ikke er et problem i DK.
Jeg kender ikke meget til danske reglepolitik. Jeg vil hellere ikke sige, at man kan overføre BLM og Amerikanske racisme i Danmark. Jeg vil dog sige, at dem som påstår, at systemisk racisme, soft racisme, og racisme i det hele taget ikke er et problem i Danmark har taget fejl. Måske har jeg taget fejl i min opfattelse. Måske min shitty, ikke-flydende dansk har ført mig til at misforstå de kommentarer, som har "inspireret" mig til at skrive denne post. Måske bliver jeg bare downvoted to hell. Jeg håber alligevel, at I vil lytte.
Nej, jeg bliver ikke dræbt af politiet og ja, denne post er en stor fallacy i sig selv, da den kun er om mine erfaringer. Forhåbentligt kan det dog vise danskerne og Denmark, at livet ikke er så peachy perfect for de udlaændinge, hvis grund til at flytte her ikke er for at arbejde hos Mærsk/Total.
Baggrund: Har boet i DK i 3 år, mørkhudet Asiat, en forældeen del af familie er Amerikaner. En del af forskellige new commmeforeigners i DK grupper (for social activities and networking). Var journalist og skribent i mit hjemland/i USA. Studerende nu.
Jeg ved, at denne post er emotionelt ladet fremfor at være baseret på statistik/research/whatever. Jeg er også klar over, at jeg slet ikke er undertrykt og har mange muligheder ift. minorititer i andre lande.
Jeg håber stadig, at I overvejer, at Danmark ikke er et perfekte, racisme/diskriminations-fri land. Mange udlænding har sandsynligvis oplevet "små," irriterende diskrimination, som har gjort livet vanskeligere for dem i forskellige grader. Jeg håber, I giver plads til dem, som ikke har oplevet den Danmark, som I har; som har en anden opfattelse af et land, som vi elsker og respekterer, men som nogle gange føler som ikke landet ikke elsker og respekterer os. (Jeg taler overhoved ikke for hele minoritetsgruppen, bare for mig selv og dem jeg kender, som har haft samme foølelseoplevelser).
Det er ikke for at sige, at DK er et lorte sted. Tværtimod. Det er hellere ikke for at sige Danmark og alle danskere er racistiske.
Man kan dog ikke bare lave memes om, at racisme ikke findes i Danmark. Og jeg synes, hvis jeg skulle været ærlig, at mange danskere er ufølsomme med deres ord/argumentejokes - og disse samme mennesker virker ret defensiv om Danmarks "progressiveness", når konfronteret med andre meningeopfattelser.
PS Der er en ung mand, som jeg følger, som har delt mange links om research/artiklestatistikker mht. racisme i Danmark: https://www.facebook.com/rbrygger; her er en podcast, som jeg synes var interessant (ikke at jeg er enig i det) https://avisendanmark.dk/artikel/racismeforsker-danskerne-er-selvglade-nationalister-som-ikke-kan-erkende-racisme?fbclid=IwAR0wYgLGgOu0IStjOQHdmVQDhox3uWyo_u8dIbCkW1ncysURVqAvFcl3xy4; her er en essay, som jeg også synes kunne være relevant: https://www.facebook.com/theLLAG/photos/a.493561587401992/2981563645268428/?type=3&theater
PPS vil bare tilføje, at jeg også synes, at det virker som om, reaktionen og kritikken til den sorte kvindes “racisme” har været meget mere grov og voldsom end til Paludans (hvor det synes, at viiiiiiirkelig mange danskere forsvarer Paludans bullshit for “ytringsfrihed”).
PPPS har slet ikke tid og energi til at tjekke grammaspelling og genlæse hvad jeg har skrevet, so apologies in advance
Min mands bedstevens bror havde en kæreste fra Australien. De vil gerne flytte her. Efter at ansøge og det hele, ringede han til the department for immigration (or whatever department is in charge of this called) to ask how good the chances of his wife were for being able to move here. Han sagde, at kvinden nægtede at svare; men efter at have presset hende, så sagde hun noget i retning af "Du har ikke noget du skal være bekymret for, hvis din kone kommer fra australien. Det er kun dem, som kommer fra uonskede lande ligesom i mellemøsten, som vil blive afvist." Det hele endte med at processen var for stressende selv for dem, at de blev skilt. (de giftede sig, fordi de havde hørt, det skulle være nemmere for dem at komme her som gift). Hvis i nogen sinde er i esbjerg, find en rock-bar med en bartender, som har været i australien. Han vil sikkert bekræfte denne (dog lad være med at vise denne post for at gemme min identitet lol).
yoooo a few of you guys are really defensive, damn. i'm not attacking denmark, jeez. i never even said i hate danes or that i hate being here or that denmark is worse than USA or that denmark is a racist shithole lol. me writing this post is NOT me complaining, regardless of what tone my danish writing gave off. i even outright admitted this post is devoid of statistics and is a big fallacy in itself, since it's just a bunch of hastily listed first-hand experiences and generalizations with no scientific basis.
i'm just suggesting that there's another side of denmark that some of us might not have seen/heard of/experienced - and for the betterment of our society and country, we ought to be open to hearing other people's perspectives. otherwise, we're just hiding the ugly parts of society under a rug and pretending they don't exist (and effectively saying these people also don't exist) - instead of tackling them and finding a solution head-on. just because i like denmark as a whole, doesn't mean i'm gonna shut up if i think there's parts of it that can and should be improved. denmark being good does not equal to it being immune from criticism/improvement.
Skal også nævnes, at vi havde en klassekammerat på HF, der blev smidt ud. Sort, havde baggrund som ex gang member, fattig familie fra somalien (kan ikke huske om han var født her eller om de flyttede da han var en baby). Gik i skole nogle uger efter han blev løsladt; havde lidt PTSD-agtig symptomer når han er i en klasselokale blandt mennesker, men fulgte opgaverne, lektier, m.m. fint! (Lærerne sagde selv, han har potentielle og er klog). Problemet var, at han fik for meget fravær på et tidspunkt for whatever reason (maybe PTSD eller reintegration to society problems eller andre årsager; da han begyndte at pjakke efter en idiot dansk dreng fra et andet hold sagde til ham, skolen er ligeglad med fravær). Smidt ud. Fair nok. Det er reglen jo. To hvide danske piger i samme hold. Har haft meget mere fravær end han gjorde. Præsteret på samme niveau som han gjorde ift lektier osv. Blev ikke smidt ud. Rygterne var fordi, skolen vurderede, at pigernes IQ er høj, derfor kunne de sandsynligvis klare skolen bedre trods fravær (selvom på det tidspunkt havde det ikke viste det endnu, da det skete 2ish måneder efter vi startede skoleåret). Jeg synes ikke, det er fair. Reglene siger jo, at man smides ud, hvis man har X-fravær - no exceptions - apparently unless you're a single, danish mother in her 20s. De fik chance til at vise, at de kan opgaverne trods fravær (og de fortsat med at have fravær mindst to dage hver uge hele skoleåret), men den anden ikke kunne.
Tak til alle som har bidraget til debatten, uanset jeres meningepolitiske holdninger.
Jeg vil dog sige, at jeg for a long time syntes, Denmark havde en negativ eller underlig stemning ift debatter og diskussioner. Mange kommentarer opfattede jeg som barsk, grov, uhøflig, immature, provokerende, sometimes not even addressing the topic but just insulting politicians/public figures/etc - selv når brugeren kunne bevise en artikel osv., kunne tonen være hård. Just now with all the criticisms against that black lady, there were jokes about her appearance and weight - also about Paludan, though I personally didn't see those as often.
I dismissed that gut-instinct as me being wrong, fordi mit dansk er shit og jeg er ikke flydende, så måske var det bare mig, der havde misforstået noget eller at noget var lost in translation. Nu tror jeg, at jeg havde ret. Især når der har været nogle danskere, som har reached out og udtrykkede de samme opfattelser.
EDIT 5 (og forhåbentligt sidste):
Saying "Der findes ikke noget forkert i de reglepunkter du har nævnt. Alle immigranter skal går igennem det" is like saying that "All immigrants are affected by these ridiculously tough laws; therefore the laws are not discriminatory since it discriminates against all immigrants equally" lol. The problem isn't having laws per se. Laws for safeguarding are fine. But some laws are dumb as fuck and downright unfair and were clearly made to regulate certain ethnic groups. Tightening certain laws so it affects certain social groups more than others - chiefly for the sake of virtue signaling and gaining populitisk votes - is, actually, a form of discrimination. Where is the logic in not allowing working residents any safeguards against arbejdsløshed? Where is the fairness in denying the visa application of an immigrant who has worked full time and paid taxes for many years (some more than most danes), simply because he was jobless for a few months prior to sending his application? Where is the fairness in that, when someone from EU can get more rights for working/paying taxes in a shorter timeframe? Christ. Did you guys even listen to your own samfundsfag/jura classes? Honestly...
i have not anywhere said that this post is exclusively about systemic racism....... if you wanna get technical with it, i’d call the bullet points about laws and difficulty getting social mobility/access to school etc as institutional racism - whether it’s systemic, too, is a whole other discussion

2020.06.10 04:23 The_Only_Nerb Moving to new home and need advice on network layout

Hello, all! I have gotten a lot of great information from various posts in this group, but I need some help.
My wife and I are in the process of selling our home and buying another. The current home has been small and open enough that my Nighthawk R6700 coupled with a cable modem I own has served us well for wifi along with a single ethernet run downstairs to a cheap 4-port switch for Xbox and stereo. We are using Comcast for internet here.
The new house is older (built in '79) with no current ethernet pulls in the structure. Spectrum is our cable internet option there. The main floor is upstairs, and the media room will be downstairs. My plans are to have the cable modem upstairs in an office. I'll have a router connected to the cable modem. My work laptop will be located in the same room as the router. I'll pull a CAT6 run downstairs to a media closet to an 8-port switch. From the switch, I want to run an ethernet connection to my daughter's room that will be downstairs on the other side of the wall from the media closet. I also plan a CAT6 pull to the back of the TV (along with the HDMI run) for futureproofing. The Xbox and AV receiver will be in the closet with the switch and hardwired. I had considered pulling one more CAT6 run to a WAP downstairs if needed, but now I am wondering if I should use the R6700 as a WAP only and buy a new router for the upstairs office.
What is my best play here? I am geeked about the new house and the possibility of having something useful and nice for the foreseeable future. The R6700 is a little dated, but it has been reliable. Is there a router (under $300) that I should upgrade to for my main upstairs hub and wifi and use the R6700 as a WAP downstairs? Or should I just use the R6700 as my main hub and get a WAP for the downstairs area?
Thanks for the help. I appreciate it.

2020.06.06 13:48 creoray [Tutorial] Fix certain problematic AltStore errors.

I’ve seen many people getting errors with altstore, preventing them from jailbreaking/installing unc0ver, and I’m not going to let users that can’t jailbreak sit without a solution for too long, so here’s the errors I’ve experienced and how to fix them. This might help you too!
First Step - Make sure you’re doing things such as, Make sure you have iTunes and iCloud installed on your computer, if you’re on Mac, you should be fine as iTunes is built into the system now with the most recent versions
Second Step - Run the program as administrator, didn’t fix my MAIN issue for me, but might fix problems you have.
Third Step - Sync your system date and time, both on iDevice and PC/Mac, if you’re a dual boot user like me, this could be an issue, I run Ubuntu with windows 10 so that fixed the \private\var error that i had.
Fourth Step - “Invalid Anisette Data” - Fix this by SIGNING IN to the iCloud program, not just having it installed, thats what fixed it for me.
Fifth Step - “AltServer could not be found” - When altserver is running- all i have for this is, restart your system, make sure you’re on the same wifi on both devices, something that helped was actually keeping my device connected to the pc AltServer was running on when i tried to install Unc0ver, it worked for me, but most likely wont be the solution for you.
Sixth and final Solution - “An Unknown Error Occurred” - DISABLE EVERY ANTIVIRUS ON YOUR PC, Most antiviruses block critical install files therefore disallowing the app to get past a certain point when installing an app, even disable windows defender for as long as you need, just dont go anywhere shady on the internet while your AV is disabled. Leave your device plugged in for ~2-3 mins after the install to make sure the process is all wrapped up!
Leave something in the comments if i missed any of the critical/major errors, otherwise, i hope i was really able to help someone get jailbroken again!
