How do you feel about electric vehicles?

2020.09.24 10:15 KromPiesang How do you feel about electric vehicles?

I see international legislation wants to phase out internal combustion engines (ICE) around 2030 - 2040:
From the first article (also newest):
"All new passenger cars and trucks sold in the state from 2035 be zero-emissions vehicles. Additionally, all drayage trucks—the ones that move containers (...) —must also go emissions free by this date, as well as off-road vehicles and equipment. Medium- and heavy-duty vehicles get an extra decade to comply, but by 2045 these too must ditch internal combustion engines.
"(...) will only apply to new gasoline- or diesel-powered vehicles sold in the state after it goes into effect. Cars and trucks already on the road and registered before 2035 will remain road-legal."
Most countries only ban the sale of new ICE cars, but others, like Paris, Madrid, Athens, and Mexico City (2nd article), wants to ban ICE vehicles entirely.

With the terrorist narrative being replaced by the plandemic, it's mostly going to be "plot points" that get represented on the key dates.

2020.09.21 17:43 icecoolsushobhan [r/IndiaSpeaks - Biweekly Geopolitics Thread] Abraham Accords signed, TikTok escapes US ban, and the CIA's Tibet Program

Welcome to this week's edition of the Biweekly Geopolitics Thread, where we discuss all the news from around the world. Discussion does not have to be related to India, and users are encouraged to share and discuss stories in the comments. Here are a few stories to get the discussion rolling:

Top 5 stories

  1. COVID-19 cases surge in Europe
European countries, once presented as benchmarks for effective use of lockdowns to tackle the coronavirus pandemic, are experiencing a resurgence, fueled by movement of people across countries. On Sunday, France reported over 10,000 new cases while the UK reported 4,000. The WHO warned that a very serious situation was emerging in Europe, which is compounded by the fact that the previous lockdown had such a massive economic impact that doing it again could be difficult politically, with protests already erupting in Madrid. Nonetheless, new restrictions on travel and daily life are expected.
  1. PLA Air Force simulates attack on US base
The Communist Party of China's armed air wing - the PLA Air Force - released a video of simulated war games in which nuclear-capable fighter jets were shown to be attacking a model of the U.S.'s Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. At the same time, the PLAAF sent fighter jets close to Taiwan, beyond the half-way point in the Taiwan Straits, causing Taiwan to deploy an air defense missile system and scramble its own jets. This points to increased tension in the East China Sea, where the US has been conducting naval operations with two of its aircraft carriers.
  1. Abraham Accords signed between Israel and UAE, Bahrain
In a glitzy ceremony at the White House, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu (who is also the country's foreign minister) joined the foreign ministers of UAE and Bahrain to sign the historic peace deal - called the Abraham Accords - that would establish diplomatic ties between the countries for the first time, doubling the number of Arab countries with official ties to Israel. Marking that historic move, Saudi Arabia allowed an Israeli El Al flight to use its air space en route to Abu Dhabi. Previously, only Air India was allowed to fly over Saudi Arabia in flights to and from Israel. The presence of Bahrain - largely seen as a satellite state of Saudi Arabia - strongly implies that the latter is on board with the deal as well. Speculation is rife that Morocco and Sudan are also looking to recognize Israel.
  1. TikTok and WeChat survive US ban, for now
On Sunday, the US was all set to ban new downloads of popular Chinese apps TikTok and WeChat, over concerns that the apps were used for surveillance by the Chinese Communist Party. However, both survived the ban. TikTok's US operations will be owned partly by Walmart and Oracle in a deal that has the blessings of the White House, while a federal judge stayed a ban on WeChat. Oracle will host all of TikTok's US data locally. The WeChat issue is more complicated, as it is the only means of communication between American citizens of Chinese origin and their families back home in China, where virtually every other app is banned.
  1. Rare sarcophagi found in Egypt
In a happy moment for human history, archaeologists in Egypt announced the discovery of a tomb with 27 sarcophagi dating back to about 2,500 years. Experts at the site, who had to climb down an 11 m deep well in difficult conditions (no heavy equipment is allowed at the site to avoid damaging it), say that the tomb seems to have been unopened since the sarcophagi were first buried. The tomb was uncovered in the town of Saqqara, south of the capital Cairo, which was an active burial ground in one of the ancient world's great civilizations.

Geopolitical History: The CIA in Tibet

With tensions between India and China at the border reaching historic levels, there has been renewed discussion about Tibet. For over a thousand years, the plateau, often called the "roof of the world" for its height, was a Buddhist theocracy led by a religious figure, the Dalai Lama. The kingdom, like Korea, Japan, and Vietnam, was a vassal state of the Chinese emperor, paying an annual tribute but not being directly administered by China. All that changed in 1950, when the PLA invaded and annexed Tibet, forcing the Dalai Lama to flee to India and bringing China's border right to the Indian subcontinent.
For two decades, the US through the CIA, the State Department, and the Department of Defense, ran operations in Tibet to prevent expansion of communism in the "autonomous region" and keep up hopes for an independent Tibet. In declassified documents, it has been shown that senior US administration members saw Tibet through two lenses: first, China's view that control of Tibet would give it a buffer zone in case western powers chose to invade China via India; and second, the American view that China and the Soviet Union would use Tibet as a staging ground to invade South and West Asia if necessary. In either case, an independent Tibet was considered the best means of maintaining status quo.
The CIA program in Tibet involved training armed Tibetan resistance fighters as well as spreading anti-Communist propaganda, and began when Gyalo Thondup, the Dalai Lama's exiled brother, made contact with CIA operatives in India. At the height of the program, the CIA was spending almost $2 million a year. Fighters were trained both in the US as well as in a secret camp in the Nepal-Tibet border, and it is believed that it was these fighters that enabled the Dalai Lama to safely escape to India before he could be arrested by the PLA in 1959. Fighters also intercepted Chinese documents, proving to be a valuable source of intelligence into the world's most populous Communist-controlled country.
The Tibetan resistance was successful in holding back PLA forces in Tibet, who by 1960 numbered into tens of thousands and were facing huge costs and logistical challenges, but it led to the local civilian population facing harsh reprisals, including mass arrests and bombing of Tibetan Buddhist monasteries. Declassified documents also showed that Indian Prime Minister Nehru opposed any anti-Communist activities in India, only willing to support the Dalai Lama's right to practice his religion but not Tibetan independence. The CIA program in Tibet came to an abrupt halt in 1972, after the historic visit of US President Richard Nixon to China and normalization of ties between the two countries. Fighters were allegedly given INR 10,000 to buy land or start a business in India, and all support to Tibet was halted by order of the White House.
In his 1991 autobiography, the Dalai Lama criticized the CIA for supporting Tibet not because they cared about Tibet, but merely as a pawn in the Cold War.

2020.09.21 02:26 ClientSpare8405 Here are the tools I used to jump up my winning ratio in options trading.

Disclaimer: You must know how to read sticks at minimum requirement, that helps you to be able to foresee minutes ahead. This article is for newbies like me and I will write it easy as possible for you to understand. Here is my recent P/L https://www.reddit.com/RobinhoodTrade/comments/iuy9uk/i_am_scared_to_upload_a_picture_here_but_heres_my/
  1. www.tradingview.com register an account, it is free. once you registered, go to charts and add your favorite tickers and then above menu you will see the 'fx' icon, click on it and then click on the public library, there is Squeeze Momentum Indicator, apply it to your chart, that indicator will HELP YOU ALOT at least tell you the market is going down or up. Even before it turns bearish or bullish, not 100% accurate all the time but, I would say 90% time correct. that's the no.1 public library at this moment. You can also apply some MA libraries, I use Madrid Moving Average, ranked at #12. With these 2 tools. I don't make stupid decisions or be panicking easily.
  2. Candlesticks basics: When the candlestick draws below the same day's lowest red candlestick, it will go down further. And if you see the green candlestick draws above the same day's highest green candlestick, it is a good sign that it will go up more but if it fails to draw above the same day's highest green stick, it will go downfall a lot again. There is an exception, if you are betting on the stock that has a lower market cap like below 10 billion, someone can buy huge blocks of stocks and make you panic sell, so beware when you deal with low cap stocks.
  3. How do I know if my ticker is bullish or bearish in options trading? This is a very important tool that you must have. and it is free.https://www.theocc.com will show you how many Calls or Puts orders got filled each expiration date. I basically follow the money, and 90% chances I win everyday. I follow the rich people. https://www.optionseducation.org/toolsoptionquotes/optionsquotes
  4. I don't do any research or read the news when options trading, only if I'm not sure on my betting then I read, but there is so much news to read and most of them fail in my opinion, doing research and reading news is for the longterm investment in my opinion, but are we? the good news is that https://stocktwits.com people will link the news in real-time on your favorite tickers. P.S. I don't trust them saying. but I read the news they link.
  5. www.finviz.com I don't really use this much, but some of you will find a very informative story on your ticker. if you haven't visited them, try now.
Wrapping up, so the step you gotta do is, read the occ data and then on tradingview.com wait for the momentum start turning bullish or bearish, then open your position and then read the stocktwits.com for your ticker, and then when the momentum is about to turn, close your options. If you don't have 25k cash, then convert your account to a cash account, I am not sure RH would let you T+1 settlement with a cash account, which is if you close it the same day, the money is settled the next day. or you can try Tastyworks, it will let you settle immediately but they charge you $1. I have not tried Tastyworks, I use Tradestation and Robinhood.
Since I use these tools above, I basically don't lose easily regardless of the bullish or bearish market.P.S. #1 I usually don't trade in the opening hours because it is so unpredictable, the market is pretty easy to predict around 2 hours before closing in my opinion. I prefer closing times.
P.S #2 Do not hold the bag, just sell it if it goes negative 20%, it will damage your mentality, (and it ages your face a lot faster!). You have more chance to win on the next round with different tickers. save money, don't hold the bag. Also, I only use around 20% of my money, but win big with options. I would invest 50% on something I'm sure I will make a profit. otherwise, I keep it a low investment. If you hold the bag, and the rug gets pulled, you will even go crazier to recover the money but then lose all the money.
P.S. #3 I strongly recommend you to do paper trading in options for at least a couple of weeks. try Tradestation, deposit $1, this paper trading is really fun more than the games I ever played.
it would sound weird that a newbie sharing this information, but I really hope this helps you make money like I'm doing right now.
EDIT: I confirmed with Robinhood, even though the account is "Basic Tier" with Option Level-2 and then toggling off "Instant Settlement" off, it will confirm if I would want to remove the option entirely. Therefore, you can't do any options with Robinhood Cash Account. You will have to wait overnight to close the options if you have below 25k cash. For now, the only possible way is Tastyworks Cash Account with nextday settlement. That way you can close the option as many you want and the funds are settled the next trading day.

2020.09.20 11:54 santickles Help me build the gaming PC I've been daydreaming of for years. I need it for my anxiety, I swear

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
I'll mostly be using it for playing current games. I have a copy of Flight Simulator 2020 that I can't play with my current potato laptop and I definitely would want to play it. Other games would be Red Dead Redemption 2, Doom Eternal or the Resident Evil remakes, for example.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
Between 1,000€ to 1,300€, which I believe is more or less USD$1,539
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
As soon as possible!
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Tower and components. No OS, keyboard, mouse or monitor. I can use an ethernet cable but I'd also need something to connect to Wifi. I also would need thermal paste and zip ties for cable management, if these things don't already come included with the components.
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
Madrid, Spain
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
I'll be reusing my monitor (LG 24MN43) and a generic keyboard and mouse
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
I don't know too much about this, so I imagine I won't be doing it unless you guys recommend it
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Not really. Whatever is needed for a decent gaming PC within my budget. At least 1TB of storage space would be nice, but definitely not necessary.
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
Mostly WiFi, but I can also used wired from time to time. My router is a Touchstone TG3442DE
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Not really. I'm not interested in LEDs. A window for the case would be cool, but again, not necessary if it's going to take money from other parts. Ideally it would be black.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
No 🏴‍☠️
Extra info or particulars:
Nothing that I can think of!

2020.09.16 21:34 SoloTravelMods ANNOUNCEMENT: Upcoming AMA with Kyra from the No Country for Moving Podcast on SEPT. 23

Hello everyone! We are very excited to host solo-traveling badass Kyra for an AMA on Wednesday, September 23 (an earlier version of this had the wrong month, sorry!). Please see her introduction below:
Hello solotravel!
My name is Kyra, and I'm the 34 year old SOLO BLACK FEMALE traveler, who calls Brooklyn her home. Although these days, most of my travel has been stateside, I always aim to take a good walking tour along with a deep dive of the history of every space, city and locale that I frequent. I'm a passionate urbanist who enjoys creating spaces in the arts and culture with a social justice framework and through the elevation of unheard voices of marginalized communities.
Case in point, I started a podcast called @nocountryformoving. On my podcast, I interview immigrants and migrants from across the globe about their story, political and socio-cultural differences between their native country and their host country, and even what it's like to date outside of their culture!
What is driving this AMA is that I have been traveling solo since I was 20. First to my parent's motherland of Ghana, and then to countries such as Morocco, Argentina, Spain, Colombia, Ecuador, India, and the list continues! Each time I have traveled solo, I received similar responses from friends and family, " Are you traveling with friends? Why not choose another country to go to? Are you sure that is a good idea? And each time my response was adamant, "I'm going and I will be safe." Of course, sometimes I wasn't that safe or made the best decisions, but I learned from them, and one thing that I was very sure about was that I needed to share my story and experiences with whomever I could so I could become a resource to the community as well. As a single Black woman, there have been a lot of insurmountable obstacles that I have faced that should be shared and learned from and I'm ready and willing to do that with you!
My travel timeline for reference:
  • May-July 2008 - Ghana
  • April - August 2010- India
  • September 2010- July 2013 - Madrid, Spain
  • July 2013 - August 2016 - Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Patagonia, Colombia, Ecuador April - October 2016
Highlights from the Kyra Tour
  • Running with the bulls twice in Pamplona and only falling asleep once
  • Getting lost in Las Fallas
  • Being denied entry on the Moroccan and Spanish border
  • Chamuyando (charming) my way back into Argentina after a return flight from America
  • Getting trapped on the Ecuadorian and Colombian border
  • Trapped in Buenos, Argentina due to a financial snafu
  • Bloodwork debacles in the era of Zika
  • Almost going to jail India
  • Malaria in Ghana
  • Falling in love in Buenos Aires/Patagonia
  • Psychotic bosses in NYC

Join me for the AMA and follow up by listening to my podcasts @nocountryformoving on iTunes and Spotify and follow on IG @nocountryformoving and Facebook for stories of immigrants, travelers, and people like you. When you do watch an episode, please #nocountryformoving and reference the episode as well as @kymab on IG.
Do not hesitate to ask me all of the questions, no matter how creepy or off-putting or uncomfortable. Since I'm gainfully fun-unemployed, I'm overeager to answer your questions. So get at me here, IG or Facebook.
PSA: I'm doing this AMA to dispel the myth that Black women do not travel and to provide an entrance into a door of a Black female travel experience. Representation matters!
PSA2: I'm open to collaborations in the future around my podcast, so slide into my DMs or PMs.
Fun Fact: this photo is my birthday weekend over a 10 ago prior to my bed bugs debacle in Essaouira, Morrocco.
We're going to start collecting questions now, so for anyone who's not sure they'll be able to make the AMA in real-time, please post your questions below and we'll move them over to the AMA on the day of.
In the meantime, you can check out Kyra's podcast here

2020.09.16 00:17 ignaciourreta West Bromich Albion Career - long story time! - from seasons 1 to 6

West Bromich Albion Career - long story time! - from seasons 1 to 6
edit: yes I know I have written Bromwich incorrectly, reddit does not let me edit the title and I have already deleted and posted this twice lmao
After having posted my season 7 squad on this subreddit, I started Reading al lof these CM stories of you guys, so I decided to kinda tell the story of my WBA road to glory, there Will be some blank spaces cuz I didnt document it all, and all I'm writing is just from memory, but as a very famous italian journalist would say, here we go! (also sorry for my english, I’m spanish so it is a bit limited :P). This will be a very very long read, as this story has a lot of chapters waiting to be told!

SEASON 1

Transfers and squad
So I started with WBA with a squad that honestly didn't give me much confidence ahead of this huge challenge. With a Budget of 18 million € there was not much room for big names or huge changes in the squad (that Will have to wait until seasons 2-3). Nevertheless I dove into the market and was able to do some Good signings, obviously letting some players go before (I don’t remember who exactly, this was about 4 or 5 months ago). John Swift and Adam Armstrong were the 2new faces in which I trusted to take us back to the top division of english football, and, to be honest, they did preform. Fun fact #1, not only this was gonna be our first run on the Championship, but also our last one!

Sorry I dont remember pretty much any subs apart from O'Shea and Ferguson
Season review
Things didn’t really started the way one would have liked, as we lost on our season opener against Nottingham Forest 2-0, and honestly our defence was a bit of a joke through the first half of the season, but when we settled in, there was nothing that could stop us: We took the lead of the league in the 18th match against Sheffield Wednesday (who were the leaders at that point) with a commanding win of 3-0, and since then we were untouchable the whole season, winning the league with an impressive amount of 116 points. The team was looking much better, with rising-and future team Captain Dara O’Shea starting to peek his way into the starting XI, and Nathan Ferguson and Leko proving that they might be able to step-up and preform in the Premier League as they did in the second división. For anyone wondering, our cup campaign was absolutely awful loosing in the third round of the Carabo Cup, and in the replay of the 3rd round in the FA cup, but anyway, Premier League football was back at The Hawthorns, and this time it was gonna be for a long time.

SEASON 2

Transfers and squad
This team did a good enough job in the Championship, but it was of my concern the fact that it was not that great for a Good Premier League run, one that could see us staying in the league for many years and heck-maybe even qualify for european football. So it was a bit of a rebuild time, but with 26 million € of Budget again not many big transfers incoming. Those 26 millions were quickly reduced when I realised that our last season star Matheus Pereira was on loan from Sporting Portugal, and that your star left winger Diangana was also not your club’s propriety. 17 million were gone in a blink for the pass of Pereira, and although we made some Good money with sells as Phillips by 7 million, Budget was a bit tight. Other players as Gibbs and Sawyers left the club bringing a bit more of cash to the club. We also made the signing of Faouit Maouassa a very promising left Back that could run the entire pitch, come back to his net, and then run again the entire pitch all in the same sprint, he was quick as a man can get. We tried to get Diangana back but it was just too expensive for us so we went for Said Benrahma from Brentford. Young Diogo Costa came from Porto for about 4 million, but he was gonna be our sub GK as Sam Johnstone was already at 80 OVR, probably will only play the cup games and from time to time a Premier League game, getting him prepared to step up for upcoming seasons, as he was our future keeper. Also we tried to squeeze through m Matty Cash but only a few thousands in bonuses didn't allow us to sign him. Finally, on deadline day I decided to sign Kevin Danso from FC Augsburg for about 5 million as a bit of a gamble for the future, if he preforms and improve he can certainly make it into the starting XI. So the team was a bit stronger, with not much on the bench to be honest but good talent, and what’s more important - a much younger squad tan the one I encountered at the start of the journey.

Diogo Costa and Ferguson improving a lot - looking good for the future!
Season review
Cup-wise it was another awful season, loosing this time in the second round of the Carabao Cup, and again in the replay of the 3rd round in the FA cup, but the objective was not to win a trophy yet, just to stay safe in the midfield of the table. And honestly it was a great campaign on the PL, finishing 6th on the table, just 1 point below Chlesea in 5th, who overtook us in the last game after a painful loss against Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0 (They qualified 4th to the Champions League). But crucially there was a big incident in the 23rd game of the season, against Manchester United (which were a direct rival for us despite having a much better team) when Adam Armstrong got a direct red from a tackle to Fred and left us one men down for 50 minutes. Eventually we lost that game, and Armstrong never made it into the starting XI again that season, being sold the following summer (look I know that the one that made that tackle was me but ya’ know, you have to make up a bit of a story from time to time). Overall it was a great season, qualified for the Europa League, with a lot of talent in the squad still growing as Jonathan Leko, already in the high 70s, Dara O’Shea now playing every game from the start, Ferguson and Costa also improving a lot.

SEASON 3

Transfers and squad
This season I knew that we definitely needed a step-up from our squad if we wanted to stay competitive in the top 6 and preform in the Europa League. But I also knew that the transfer Budget was not gonna be anything crazy (40 million-ish this time, not too bad to be fair). Fun fact #2, I already knew that through last season, so in January I did some 0-cost moves looking forward to season 3. There were 3 main names (there was a 4th also, Fosu-Mensah from Manchester United, but he was more of a rotation guy) that we signed whose contract came to an end after the 20/21 season. Firstly, Aboubakar Kamara, he was not gonna be our main striker of course, but a bit of a experienced (and fighting) sub, one of those trouble-maker players that you need on your squad. Secondly, a star signing from Liverpool in the Right Back. No it was not Trent Alexander-Arnold who moved onto Real Madrid at the end of season 1, but Hector Bellerin, who changed London to Liverpool at the end of the 19/20 season, and did not play a single Premier League game under Klopp’s management. So to try and relaunch his career he decided to come to a club that did play an european competition, but was not under the constant lights and cameras that playing for a top-tier team meant. He also was gonna be a good reference to Nathan Ferguuson, and would help him a lot improving. Lastly, we signed Tottenham discard Eric Dier. For some reason he only played a couple of games last year and Tottenham were not keen on renewing his contract, so I gave him a new one! (and with his signing starts a struggle to find the perfect fit alongside Pereira, a defensive midfielder that can also go up to the other team’s field and create some danger, a bit of an all rounder, which Dier was not). Of course those 3 were not our only incorporations that summer, as we were also looking for another Left wing (Benrahama did preform but just was not the kind of lightning player we were looking for on the side of the pitch) another midfielder to have a bit of better rotation on the squad, a new central back, because being honest I was not very safe playing with Ajayi and Hagazi in the defence (both got sold in this summer), and crucially, a new striker that could fill the shoes that Adam Armstrong left after being sold by 25 million. Well, we signed Tottenham sub Ryan Sessegnon for almost 30 million (the most expensive signing in this career so far), Yossouf Fofana from Monaco, maybe the all rounder we were looking for, maybe not, very young, not too much potential but we’ll see; Emmanuel Dennis from Club Brugge, a very quick striker with some good finalising skills, and Mohamed Salisu from Valladolid, an enormous human being, very quick, with great defensive skills and a lot of potential to unleash at The Hawthorns.

Diogo Costa now was the starting GK, Ferguson was having much more playtime
Season Review
Those new players were gonna be responsable of either a well consistent season and maybe, just maybe a push for the top-4 in the Premier league, or the confirmation that West Brom was a one season wonder and that there was not much more in this squad. It turns out, it was the first one. Not only we gave Man City and Liverpool a good run for their money in the first half of the season (falling a bit in the second half to be honest), but we finished 3rd in the league well ahead of 4th and 5th, Chelsea and Manchester United. Not gonna lie, we have always done way better in the long-term league competitions tan in the cups, but that changed this year. We didn’t get knocked out of the Carabao Cup as usual in the 3rd or 4th round, but manager to get into the final (winning on aggregate 5-0 to Arsenal) against all-mighty Liverpool. It was the first final of this squad, and it showed. Liverpool wiped Wembley’s pitch with our faces in the first 20 minutes, eventually scoring the first goal of the afternoon because of a heavily-inspired Sadio Mané. We were starting to find our place at the pitch from min 20 to min 30, when a bit of light appeared in front of our faces. Daniele Rugani did a criminal foul on the center of the field and was sent out to the locker-room directly; Liverpool were one men down, and our hopes had just rise an immense amount. Emmanuel Dennis scored on the 42’ and we were tied starting the second half, but Sadio Mane had other plans for the match and he put Liverpool on top with just 35 minutes ahead. Crucially, Yossouf Fofana went into the pitch just after the goal to sub Eric Dier in the midfield, and it was his first absolute masterclass as a baggie. Not only he gave the assist to Emmanuel Dennis on the 76th minute to equalize the game again, but scored the decisive goal with just 7 minutes left, beating Alisson and giving West Bromwich their first trophy in 50 years. Since then he was on the starting XI for pretty much the resto f the season. In the FA cup we lost on the semi finals just 3 days after our league cup success against Manchester United, with a 1-1 on the match and a 4-3 loss on penalties, but in the Europa League we were not gonna let go so easy. Indeed, the season ended in a high, winning West Brom’s first European title in their history beating Borussia Monchengladbach by 2-0 in Mestalla; a pitch in which we made an impressive comeback against Valencia after loosing 0-1 in the Hawthorns, winning in Spanish soil 4-0 (4-1 agg) on the quarter finals.

SEASON 4

Transfers and squad
For some reason I did catalogue all the transfers that we made ahead of this season so I can give more details on the operations that we made.
Departures
Solorth - to Real Sociedad for 30 million € (He underperformed massively)
Aboubakar Kamara - to St. Etienne for 7 million € (Was a good free signing, but for UCL football not enough)
Kevin Danso - To West Ham utd. for 15 million € (Did not improve as expected and found a better option on the market)
Said Benrahama - to (???) for (???) - (I know I said I catalogued the moves but this one idk why I didn’t)
Signings
Tuanzebe - from Man Utd for free - did not play much at United and they were not gonna re-sign him so…
Otávio - from Everton for free - gave us a big headache in which is still up to date (I’m writing this after finishing season 8) our toughest loss, 5-1 in Goodison Park. His contract was running off so decided to get a good 80 OVR player.
Fikayo Tomori - from Norwich for 30 million € (Did not taste success at Chelsea, went undercover at Norwich, but now he wanted to return to top-tier football)
Youcef Atal - from Nice for 30 million € (Emi Buendía was not doing nothing wrong, but was not as incissive as Sessegnon on the right)
Brandon Williams - from Fortunata Dusseldorf for 17 million € (The same as Tomori, but from Man UNited to Fortunata in the Bundesliga: Very young with a lot of potential)
Mike Jeffrey Portillo Soler - from Valladolid for 15 million € - He was the replacement for Kevin Danso, much younger and with a lot of potential.
At this point I had about 20 million left and the task of signing a good sub striker. Had my eyes on Patson Daka, but Crystal Palace thought the same as me and they did sign him before I could do anything. After that I saw two young with great potential players that, if they did not perform could give us a great benefit selling them.
Favio Silva - from Oporto for 14 million € (74 OVR)
Troy Parrot- from Tottenham for 7 million € (He was 72 OVR and did not play a minute for the Spurs)

Still improving the rotation of the team
Season Review
From what I can remember this season was the brightest in terms of football that The Hawthorns has seen so far. Being a bit of an underdog as 3 seasons ago we were in the Championship kind of benefited us because our opponents did nos self-isolate just under their nets as they could be doing against europe’s biggest teams. Season started strongly with a 4-1 win over Bayern Munchen ni the Uefa Super Cup, with yet another masterclass from Yosseuf Fofana. We were pressing Bayern so hard they barely got out of their pitch in the second half. Honestly, one of the biggest games WBA have played since Alex Goerge is their manager, defeating in style last year’s Champions League winner. Our main opponent in the Group Stage was Real Madrid, but with them dropping points in both their games against Lazio, and an embarrassing defeat against us in the Santiago Bernabeu by 4-0, their late win at The Hawthorns by 2-1 couldn’t get higher than 2nd place behind WBA. In the domestic competitions things were looking really good as we again did a pretty strong first half of the season in the Premier League an managed to get into the Carabao Cup Semi-Finals against Manchester United. Our run in the Premier League was looking good for a title shot, but unfortunately in the Carabao Cup we drawn both legs against United 1-1 and lost in penalties (like last year against them in the FA cup semi finals) by 4-3. After an “easy” draw against Oporto in the first knockout stage of the Champions league saw us through to face against Liverpool, as lady luck did not seem to be by our side, giving us pretty much one of the toughest rivals we could get. Last year’s Carabao Cup final showed us we still were not a match for them unless something strange happened (like Rugani’s red card, which allowed us to make the comeback), but this season it was different, being just ahead of them in the league, we knew we could challenge them in the quarter finals. And heck we did. A 1-1 in The Hawthorns was not a good result for the second leg but we did still had our chances, and in a game that remembered a lot the Super Cup won in august against Bayern, we knocked out Liverpool winning in Anfield 3-1 with Klopp’s team not creating a single chance in the second half of the game. Suddenly we were in the Champions League semi-finals against Barcelona, leading the Premier League by 4 points with less than 10 games left and in the FA cup semi-finals against Chelsea. Unfortunately we couldn’t make it into the FA cup final, even we pushed Chelsea with our aggressive pressing style up to their goal for the entire game, a late Pulisic goal in the 81’ made me bring out Emmanuel Dennis as I did big rotations for this game (1st squad needed a break). Dennis managed to tie the game in the 88th minute, but yet in another counter-attack Chelsea got us in the 105’. Dennis still had other plans as he socred just ten minutes later the 2-2, and then we were into the penalty shootout again. And we were not good at that. Chelsea won the shootout by a humiliating 3-0, but we still had good chances of winning the Premier and Champions League. We maintained a 4 point lead over Liverpool with 2 games left, the first one at Stamford Bridge, and the Premier League finale ni our home receiving Tottenham. Couldn’t break through Chelsea’s defense but managed to take one point out of the bridge, so we still were only depending on ourselves against José Mourinho’s Spurs in front of our fans to win WBA’s first league title in over 100 years, the first one of the Premier League era. After a boring first half, with much more possession than Tottenham but not too many chances I decided to bring out Troy Parrot (against his former club) to see if he could gave us something that Leko could not. And he absolutely could. He broke trough spur’s defence not once, not twice or even three times, but managed to score 4 goals (one third of all the goals he socred one season) and made West Brom the Premier League Champions of the 22/23 campaign. Out european campaign saw us receive Barcelona at The Hawthorns in the UCLsemi-finals for the first time in the club’s history, an despite Barça took the early lead, Leko and Dennis managed to score one goal each and wrap up the first leg winning 2-1. Half of the work was done, but there was still a visit to the Nou Camp remaining. And it was absolute hell. We managed to get some decent chances in the first half, but Ter Stegen ( as well as in the 1st leg) made some impossible saves. In the second half we just couldn’t manage to get out of our pitch, Barça was a machine of creating goal chances, including one post in the 93th minute. Luckily (or not), we survived on spanish soil and squeezed our way into the final with a nil nil in the second half. We faced Juventus in the season finale for european glory, and the match couldn’t start in a worse way for us. Not only we were missing some incredible chances (Szczęsny did pretty much the game of his life), but Otàvio was given a direct red card with 10 minutes left in the first half. Nevertheless, I knew the spirit of this team was indestructible, and so, Dennis scored in the 75th minute, and gave WBA the biggest trophy of their history. Shoutout to both young strikers Fabio Silva and Troy Parrot, the first one being key for the UCL title (10 goals 9in 10 games) and the second one, not really performing until the last game of the PL, until then he was pretty much out of the team.

SEASON 5

Transfers and Squad
I did not catalogue the transfers this season, so I will do this from memory...
Departures
Mohamed Salisu - to Real Madrid for 75 million € (As I said, there was not much hope on retaining him after Barcelona almost got him on last summer’s deadline day, so a good offer came in and there was not much to do)
John Swift - to Manchester City for 29 million € (A good player, that had been with us since the beginning, but after all the signings made on the midfield, there was not much room for him, so it was silly to deny him a move)
Otávio - to Schalke 04 for 30 million € (Pretty much the same case as Swift, no room for him, and his red card on the UCL finale was difficult to forget… nevertheless he di a really good job the season he played with us, he might come back at some point in the future)
Buendía - to Chelsea for 45 million € (He had been with us since s1, but was not the type of rocketship player we were needing for our counter-attack playstyle anymore)
Youcef Atal - to Valencia for 40 million € - He not only did not fit the rocketship player role that we were aiming for, some good performances against Liverpool and Man Utd that gave me some hope, but was never decisive.
Eric Dier - to Juventus for 30 million € - Really never fit in our squad, with some good performances but never a standout one.
Faouit Maouassa did not go anywhere, but was really close to closing a deal with Barcelona on deadline day, so until he decided to stay definitely 2 months later and renewed his contract, did not play a minute.
Signings
Jack Grealish - from Aston Villa for free (85 OVR, he had nothing to do on a club that was constantly fighting for not being relegated, I suppose he did not want to renew his contract for that reason, so was a great option)
Youri Tielemans - from Leicester City for free (pretty much the same case as Grealish, Leicester was fighting for Europa League positions, and he was ready for much more)
Lucas Fernandes - from Vitoria SC for free (Brazilian, same profile as Pereira, 2 years younger, with less potential but he was a great option as a sub for him)
Boubacar Kamara - from Villarreal for 40 million € - Defensive midfielder, very young (84 OVR), signed him for matches in which we need a bit more defensive skills (against top teams) to be just behind Pereira and give the team a bit more consistency.
Patson Daka - from Crystal Palace for 45 million € (Wanted to sign him last year, Crystal Palace was faster than me, this year he was not gonna play anywhere else than The Hawthorns)
Krépin Diatta - from Eintracht Frankfurt for 75 million € (The most expensive transfer we have done so far in this career, he was 86 OVR and was coming to fix the issue that Atal was not able to. His signing was a very risky one, so he had to perform from day 1)
With Ferguson moving to the centre of the defence as a replacement for Salisu while Portillo Soler kept growing, we had to look for another RB, as Fosu Mensah was okay, but only 79 rated, for a club fighting for Premier League and Champions League was a bit low for being the second option.
Matty Cash - from Southampton for 20 million € - I was really close to sign him years ago, and he was a solid option for being Bellerin’s sub, with Fosu Mensah completing a good rotation on the RB.
Kieran Tierney - from Napoli for 35 million € - This signing was made in a hurry on deadline day with just 4 or 5 hours left as Barcelona and Maouassa were finishing up a deal. Their negotiations ended up badly, Maouassa stayed and now we had him, Brandon Williams and Tierney, three pretty good solid options, none of them was way better than other on the LB.
Illan Mesliar - from Leeds for 15 million € - Also another signing made in a bit of a hurry as Diogo Costa got injured for long duration on pre-season and I only had one more GK

Just Diatta missing for a quality sub - Maouassa loosing his position in the LB
Season Review
Not gonna lie, probably the toughest season so far in this save. We started our league title defense with 3 losses in a row against low tier teams, conceding 8 goals against and not scoring even one, so our league titles were pretty much obliterated from there on. Managed to start picking up the pace, but we never had a consistent enough run to fight for the title again. After the first half of the season we were standing in 11th place, really far from the objective, which was finish inside the top-4 and secure a UCL spot for next year. Managed to finish a poor 4th in the league, overtaking Manchester United in the last game, ending the campaign just 1 point ahead of them. In the domestic cups, we threw away the Carabao cup in round 3, so, pretty much in November, we had no chances of winning the league cup nor the league. Things were not looking good. Fitting Tielemans alongside Pereira in the midfield was being a struggle, and Jack Grealish did not want to be behind Sessegnon in the team, so before the end of the year, they told me they wanted to leave the club. Grealish only play some games from there, but Tielemans ended up changing his mind, but it was really clear that he did not fit the role that Fofana did absolute wonders alongside Pereira. If that was not enough, in december, Leko, our main striker since the beginning of this save told me he was determined to leave, and in January a FC Barcelona offer came in for Hector Bellerin (Barça is the club he grew up in). Tomori also did want to leave the club in january. So yeah, things were not going smooth.
I could not sell Tielemans or Grealish in January yet, and was determined to keep Leko until the end of the season given he was one of the most-if not the most important player of the team. Tomori went to Real Madrid for 60 million as he was not getting the playtime he wanted (ferguson was playing as a CB alongside O’Shea, and Bellerin was in the RB) I managed to convince Bellerin to stay until the end of the season, and in the summer we were gonna let him go to Barcelona back again. Apart from that, Fofana goit injured until late february, so I had to make a move and sign some players. The chosen ones were Juan Foyth, from Granada, with good potential, and Lewis Cook from Florentina, who caught my eye seasons ago, but never was a priority until now. Also, Brandon Williams went on loan to RB Leipzig, as we had three top quality LB and not all of them could have the playtime they wanted.
We managed to get through the UCL group stage, but we were gonna face Real Madrid, and things were not looking good. Fofana got healthy just in time for the 1st leg, and as Tielemans had not worked alongside Pereira so far, decided to put him on the starting team. And what a decision it was. He once again gave another masterclass, we beated Real in Spain 3-1, and then after another Fofana masterclass in The Hawthorns won 2-1 again. So after trying Tielemans so much, it was clear that both our CMs had to be Pereira and Fofana, and Tielemans was gonna be a pretty sure sale next summer. Worked our way onto the UCL final against City (sorry for not giving much more details, but i don’t remember them) , and beat them 3-1 without Leko (I did not think he really deserved to play the last game of the season after telling us he wanted to left the first time things were not going smooth in the team). In the FA cup we won the final against Manchester United, a club that used a really dirty tactic to destabilize us one week before the game: sign Jack Grealish and Leko, both of them at the same price, 75 million €. Pretty much the only good thing this season was the fact that Diatta not only showed he had great potential, but proved he was exactly the player we were looking for, we solved the issue in the right, now wwe had to sort out Pereira’s mate in the midfield (Fofana was good from time to time, but only 81 OVR, one of the lowest in the team, and a really inconsistent player)

SEASON 6

After a tough season 5, we had to sort some things on the squad, and try to do a decent PL campaign, maybe not win it, but at least put up a good fight against Liverpool and Man City.
Transfers and squad
Departures
Youri Tielemans - 100 million to Manchester City - a good business for the club, he did not get out of the club in a bad was (as Leko or Grelaish did), but after trying so hard to fit him in the team’s scheme, it was clear that there was no room for him at The Hawthorns, with the squad playing much better with Fofana instead of him.
Jack Grealish - to Manchester United for 75 million € - did not perform on the pitch, wanted to leave as soon as possible, again, a free signing that reports a 75 million profit for the club, but you don't want players so unhappy in the team or you could easily lose the trust your players have.
Jonathan Leko - to Manchester United for 75 million € - after 5 seasons in the first team, he decided it was time for a new challenge at Old Trafford due to his lack of minuted (I feel this was a bit of an excuse, as he did have the playtime he deserved, playing even more games than top-scorer Emmanuel Dennis)
Hector Bellerin - to Barcelona for 30 million € - after he agreed to stay until the end of the season due to the big trouble the team was going through january, when Barcelona tried to sign him again in summer there was no choice but to let him go. A true gentleman who believed in the early-stages of this project that leaves the club after 3 seasons. Now Ferguson was ready to take on his place on the RB.
Patson Daka - to Real Madrid for 60 million € - he did a pretty rubish season, only scoring 6 goals, and although he was a sub, he played a lot of games, had many chances, but just missed pretty much all of them.
Fabio Silva went on loan to Roma to have a bot of more playtime. His 1st season was much better than Parrot’s one, then the second one was the other way around, so I let one go temporarily.
The departures of Grealish and Tielemans were no big deal as they were not a crucial part of the squad, Bellerin, although he was a great player, did not have any progression left, while Ferguson was already ahead of him in terms of numbers, was younger and did had a lot of potential to unleash yet. So the only really harmful sell was Leko to United.
Signings
Diogo Jota - from Wolverhampton Wanderers for free - this was the only free signing of this transfer window, as the club did not want to keep with this politic of signing players that were running out of contract, as it was a maneuver to expand the club at a low cost. 87 OVR, did not have much to do in a club fighting in the midfield of the Premier League. He was a great option for both the left of the field and as a partner for Dennis.
Renato Sanches - from Monaco for 56 million € - the struggle for finding a good rated player to play alongside Perira continued, but Sanches was clearly a good option, as the player that had worked better with the Brazilian was Fofana, with 80 ish on all his stats, and Renato was a bit ahead of him in pretty much each way. A player with both good defensive and offensive skills.
Allan Saint-Maximin - from Newcastle United for 45 million € - Although Diogo Jota could play in the left, his signing was mostly to be a striker, so Sessegnon still did not have a natural sub, which made it difficult to have him in shape for the big games.
Moise Kean - from Everton for 50 million € - I was not very confident about the signing of Diogo Jota, as other free players that came in did not perform as expected (Tielemans, Grealish), so Kean was a good option that I had been tracking for years, and now his time had come at WBA.
Diego Lainez - from Betis for 40 million € - I did not have a decent sub for Diatta and although he played most of the games I wanted one just in case he got injured or there was little time between important matches

Team full of powerful rotations on all positions
Season Review
This was honestly one banger of a season. The main objective was to be back on top of our game and be competitive again in the Premier League, as last year was a bit of a disaster. This time there was not gonna be experiments as Tielemans was last year, I knew the one that worked better with Pereira was Fofana and he started playing since day 1 of the season, with Renato Sanches having some minutes looking for substitute Fofana, but unfortunately no remarkable games from Sanches proved me that maybe he was not the replacement for Fofana neither. On th other side, the formula that we did know that worked did absolute wonders, and we finished the season unbeaten, with 4 draws, and 106 points, we claimed our second Premier League of our history, just 2 points ahead of Liverpool, who just lost 2 games of the season, both of them against us (0-4 at Anfield, they were one men down since minute 30, and 2-0 at The Hawthorns, so without both victories we wouldn’t have won the league). In the Carabao Cup final we defeated also Liverpool 3-1, a result that also was seen in the Uefa Champions League final, also against Klopp’s squad. No, we did not win the FA cup against Liverpool in the final (we knocked them out in the extra time of the quarter finals), we won it against Manchester City 2-0. The quadruple was ours, but this journey was far from ended. One remarkable moment in the season was the UCL semi-finals against Atletico de Madrid, We drawed 1-1 at The Hawthorns, and in the second leg Matheus Pereira was given a red card after just 20 minutes, so things were looking absolutely horrible. Dennis managed to give us the lead with 25 minutes to go, but Atletico managed to tie just after the kick-off. We went onto extra time and then onto the penalties, which, if you remember, did not give us good memories from a few years ago losing both the Carabao Cup and FA cup semi finals in the shootout. Fortunately, this time we managed to win 4-3. In the january transfer window Brandon Williams returned from his loan from RB Leipzig (and got a lot of playtime just behind Maouassa as Tierney was a bit stuck in terms of progression).
The pictures that I have posted of the team are from the start of each season, but don't tell the full story (i.e. Maouassa starts s5 on the bench as he almost went to barcelona on deadline day so until he renewed his contract he did not play on the starting XI, then mid season he gets his position back and starts s6 as usual)
So guys this has been the story until season 6 of this journey with the baggies, if you have come this far just wanted to say thank you as this has been a lot of work (not only playing, but also writing, again sry for the bad english, and a lot of memory work as I did not have almost anything catalogued). I will be doing another separate post at least for seasons 7 & 8 where I have catalogued a lot more and I have them much more recent in my brain xD. Again thank you for the read, and don't hesitate on leave your opinion or ask anything (if you have beem able to go through all of this)

2020.09.12 07:23 Significant-Notice- The fragility of herd immunity

Trouble in the Madrid region is brewing again, even though earlier seroprevalance had clocked in at about 20 percent:

Good for New York of course, here is a thread discussing the comparison, to me the conclusions seem premature. The important point in any case is that Covid-protected time periods need not last forever, and you can end up in multiple rounds of “let it rip.” As far as I know, this is the first established case of a major “second wave” in a previously hard-hit area.
The good news is that Madrid cases seem to have peaked, and furthermore the death rate is much lower the second time around, the latter ben one good reason for postponing cases into later time periods rather than taking them all up front.
Note also that England has had months of open pubs, and a very quiet situation, but now cases there are doubling every six to seven days (FT). Don’t switch back to talk of deaths! The “simple” theory of herd immunity is surprised to see that new trend in cases. What I call semi-herd immunity suggests a high degree of protection for the current configuration of social relations, after some point. As those social relations change, some of that temporary herd immunity dissolves, as new infecting connections are being created and new superspreaders arise and do their thing. But that takes a while, possibly months.
The herd immunity theorists downplay the possible temporariness of the equilibrium they pinpoint. They instead prefer to focus on the (correct) point that most of the mainstream approaches did not forecast the collapse in deaths and hospitalizations found in England, Sweden, New York, and now parts of the American South. In reality, you need to put both sides of the picture together, and grasp both the insights and limitations of the herd immunity theorists.
So herd immunity does seem to be fragile, and if other developments (treatment, antivirals, steroids, masks and thus lower dosage) lower death rates, bravo, but case behavior still moves against the simple herd immunity theory, at least in Madrid. How fragile we still do not know, and I readily grant and indeed would emphasize that Madrid is the only major counterexample to date. Appreciate the limits of knowledge!
If you listen to Ivor Cummins, a darling of the herd immunity theorists, he doesn’t seem to grasp these problems of possible temporariness (he loves to switch to talk of deaths at just the wrong time), but rather treats herd immunity as “it’s over,” with a few vague qualifiers tossed in at the very end. We will see.

2020.09.10 11:18 Snoo_3158 Bosses get away with far too much, I know it, you know it and the toxic bosses reading this will already be frothing at the mouth.

LetsTalkAbout ....

Bosses get away with far too much, I know it, you know it and the toxic bosses reading this will already be frothing at the mouth. So it’s time they start getting called out, let me make a commitment to you here. If you’re going through anything related to the following subject, you’re not alone! I’be got your back.
How many of of you have ever worked for a toxic boss? They come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
You’ve got the: - The Passive Aggressive One 😠 - The Genuinely Aggressive One 🤬 - The Stalkery One 📹 - The Belittling One 🔨 - The Paranoid One 🎭 - The Gas Lighting One 🕯 - The Compulsive Liar 🤥 - The Sexist One (Sex Pest)👺 - The Racist & Xenophobic One🐷 - The One with the inferiority complex 🐜 - The Narcissistic One 🥀
But occasionally, you find that rarest of beast. The ones that skull around LinkedIn often typing “THIS IS NOT FACEBOOK” on posts that talk about human rights issues whilst gleefully mashing “something something something snowflake” on their own page.
Of course I am talking about the arsehole incarnate who takes all the toxic traits above and combines them Thanos with the infinity stones to become the inevitable mega Arsehole.
Toxic bosses; settle down boys and girls and listen to a tale of a boss so toxic, so terrible that his name has become somewhat of a meme in inner circles.
The following events are based on a true story.
For a long time I’ve been in contact with, watched, learned and even worked with just such a beast. (I’ll insert an emoji of the representative persona as we go along).
His actions are of so much notoriety that “pulling a Metcalfe” or “they’re a proper Metcalfe” has become a common turn of phrase amongst some of my colleagues and connections.
“Eh he’s probably just got a bit of a twisted sense of humour” is what I thought initially, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.
I probably let a few things slide to begin with but in hindsight my new work colleagues saying “Be careful around him he’s bit, ya know” should have been a red flag on day one.
🎭 This particular beast took the form of my divisional manager at a large recruitment agency I worked for (he’s now left after essentially making himself unemployable over a series of sexual harassment cases also search are, as far as I am concerned in no way liable for his actions, they’re a top company) it was an odd experience. The paranoia was obvious from the start with him telling me “Don’t talk to Dunc or James, they’re bad news”, they were actually alright blokes but they just didn’t like him as he haemorrhaged staff due to treating them like shit. In fact I was the only one in the office who liked him.
A: “What do you think Mark meant by that?” N: “Errrm he asked how your weekend was?” A: “Exactly, why would he ask that?” N: “Because that’s the sort of inane conversation you have at an office job on a Monday morning”
🕯He juggled his work and his drinking problem quite well although would often keep me away from my desk on “long lunches” where I’d sit and listen to his inane ramblings about colleagues and his wife whilst he sank multiple pints, he would always say “I’m the best boss you’ll ever have, no other boss would let you get away from being away from your desk for this long” which I guess was accurate but he would then turn around the following day and say “Why are you behind on KPIs? I’m keeping you in this job right now”
A few months in and two staff members down (both having lasted no more than 1 and 3 months respectively) I assisted to hire a new person, still under the impression that it was just the market that pushed the other two out. I brought in a young girl from my previous company, she did well from the off.
👺 Then things started getting strange and she stopped socialising with us both on break times instead opting to spend it with other colleagues which is fair enough.
I wasn’t wise to the real reason this was happening at this point in time. Turns out the boss man had been sexually harassing her for weeks, going as far as to say “Book a meeting in London or somewhere far away so we can expense a hotel over night, have a few drinks, see what happens”. He is.... Not particularly attractive... Nor very gifted with charm either... Oh and 15+ years this poor girls senior.
🥀 He had also concocted a fantasy relationship between her and I (without sounding arrogant he was blatantly jealous of my looks and lifestyle at the time as I was young and single whilst he was relegated to scouring Tinder, Bumble and PoF behind his wife’s back and failing miserably, he went as far as to create a tinder profile using my picture and his name) so would often belittle me in front of her as a way of showing he was “the alpha”.
Really it just made him look petty.
📹🥀🐜👺 He would ask for explicit details of dates I’d been on, for their names and for photos. He’d find women who I had gone out with with on Facebook and try to add them for... Uncertain reasons 🤷🏻‍♂️.
One day after work we went for drinks where he spent a good 10 mins saying to our latest hire:
“You look really good, you look good, them jeans fit you just right, what sort of men are you in to? Older men with cash? Or pretty boys like Nick? Bet you like older men don’t you! Like that money” over and over.
She was visibly uncomfortable, the next day he was talking about how much of a flirt she was with him.
🔨 He would try to find faults in all things I (and any of his staff) would do, be it inside or outside of work. His life must be miserable and he gets his validation and happiness from “punching down”, for him if someone is doing better from what he sees as a “lower class” or has a chance of becoming better than him at anything it is his priority to keep them down, whilst sucking the dirt from the boots above.
This isn’t unique to me either, it seems that every ex and current employee of his had the same treatment. He actually failed the probation of one employee who I found for him back when he was a client of mine because of “mental health reasons”. This employee had billed £30k in two months but had taken a week and a half off work for mental health issues. He quit.
Going for a meal with him on lunch was a strange experience, watching him sink 7 pints over some tapas, go to work, sink 4 more after and then see him drive home constantly had me a little uneasy.
These meals were often filled with such great snippets of conversation such as:
🐷 “I’m not racist you know, a lot of people think I am but I just don’t like f**kin Pakis... Little rag heads”
or
“Your bird is only with you for a green card, that’s all you’re good for is green card ass foreign birds don’t get the craic like English ones, I’m funny you see, you’re not. That’s why you date foreigners” (my partner has two degrees and a masters in Law & Business)
👺 “I like to hurt my wife sometimes, turns me on when she cries. I took a video of it and uploaded it to PornHub.... That’s illegal? Meh who doesn’t love a bad boy”
Or him speaking to foreign waiters like they are toddlers (sigh):
“EY! Name? You... name? Javi? Football? Citeh, me... Me Citeh. You Barcelona? You Madrid? He, United. Shit hahahahahaha”
Pretty embarrassing for a “grown man”.
Me being able to speak Spanish seemed to upset him, anything that someone else could do that he couldn’t or could do better was seen as a threat.
🐜👺🔨🤥 This is an odd one and not many will be able to relate but worth putting in whilst I’m on this tangent. Often he would question my ability when it comes to boxing despite never having seen me box. I would invite him to the gym to train together and do some sparring, he would always cancel last minute but not till he says “I train with Quigg you know” and then would insist on telling a story of how he once knocked out three Greek policemen on a stag party 5 years ago and how he could “one bang” me if he wanted to. He also nearly got me banned from my favourite tapas restaurant after he ran up a bar tab by himself and told them I would pay for it the next time I was there.
🤥🐜🕯📹 Once I stopped working for him things became clearer but he was left alone with our new hire who also left shortly after I did. He would call and message me to criticise the name of my current employer, the content I put on LinkedIn, the market I worked in (if he didn’t understand something, which was a lot of things, that was also a threat to him). He had also ramped up his sexual harassment and taken to stalking a guy his final employee was kinda dating on social media, adding him, deleting him, adding him again, viewing his profile multiple dimes a day and went as far as to encourage me to “Beat him up” as he told me that she and he kinda had been reporting ME to HR for sexual harassment (after I had left the company) which seemed odd.
Basically he lived in a fantasy world of his own creation so when HR sat him down and told him he had been naughty his mind somehow interpreted that as “Nick has been naughty”.
🕯🔨🤬 At some point I ran in to financial difficulties and spoke to him about it, that was a mistake! As whenever a debate happens on LinkedIn comes up that he loses (which is all the time seeing as he builds strong opinions based on nothing but a headline in the Sun and has no real understanding of how anything works) he will drop in a “You payed your council tax yet?” Or similar.
👺 He blocked me after he got caught sending dick pics to female recruiters on LinkedIn and I told him he should apologise and do some damage limitation... He still denies doing any wrong and went as far as to comment on the status of person who called him out calling her names.
Why do I write this? Well, after he blocked me I was able to catch up with a few ex colleagues and employees and found their stories of working for him were similar to my own and how working for him had affected their mental health and even careers.
Here is where the fun starts:
He unblocked me a month or so ago and started asking questions, trying to get “dirt” on me, about my relationship, about my work life, about my finances etc.
He would send me a single message “#2020” sometimes multiple times per day in relation to my side busienss as it hasn’t made £80k in 6 months of operating.
I’ve spent the last few weeks listening to his incoherent ramblings about BLM, the EU, racism and of course his attempts to put me down, little did he know I have been baiting him (this can be something as innocuous as saying “City aren’t going to sign Messi” he sees that as an attack on him, also asking him deliberately loaded questions such as “How do you get to that conclusion?” or “Explain what you mean by that?” He would then tie himself in to knots and get angry as his logic fell apart in front of him. Until he then showed his true colours.
Taking my moment to call him out for the unhappy little man he really is and his response of listing how many houses he owns and therefore he can not possibly be unhappy whilst I have “a green card ass” (again referring to my partner as a lesser being because she isn’t from England) before he once again, blocked me.
It’s time to stand up against such arseholes. Stop them in their tracks. Show the world who they really are.

How I choose sources:
  • Most sources are at least related to Barca or the target's club/league/nationality
  • Most sources have to be around 2 weeks old. To try and stay relevant to what's going on currently.
Sources will be updated per the sources I find as well as sources that are posted in this thread.
IMPORTANT:
  • The point of this isn't to suggest what transfer is going to happen. It's to provide everyone with a lot of sources so you can come to your own conclusion. Also to reduce comments asking if we've been linked to a player and transfer rumor posts.
  • This isn't an Open Thread, the discussion has to be relevant to transfers. Discussion regarding the way the team can set up is allowed here and is encouraged.
I am open to suggestions on how to improve the table, I appreciate the help.
Please link your sources when you post a rumor.

2020.09.07 04:12 Mercy--Main Hi Reddit. Can you build me a PC better than my laptop for the price of a PS5?

I like my laptop but It's starting to fail and it can't run well the most demanding games (Still surprisingly good, though!)
So now the PS5 is coming around and I've been saving for it. But what if I built an (upgradeable) PC instead?

Anyways, sorry for that intro, you only care about the specs I assume. Here they are:
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ
RAM: 8 GB
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050
I think that's all the important parts but if you need anything else let me know and I'll check.

And here's the questionnaire the bot insisted on me having in the post:

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
