Why is CJ McCollum still the head of the NBPA after the blown 2016 offseason negotiations?

2023.05.30 22:49 commander-pancakes Why is CJ McCollum still the head of the NBPA after the blown 2016 offseason negotiations?

I'm not very informed about how collective bargaining works in the NBA and how these deals are negotiated so forgive my ignorance, but after how the lack of cap-smoothing in 2016 screwed over every team except the Warriors, why was he not replaced?
He has even spoken on how his decisions representing the players association led to him securing the biggest bag of his career during his prime, while players just one offseason later got much lower contracts relative to comparable FAs from the year prior. Now in the 2023 offseason, CJ has arguably made more decisions as the NBPA president and head representative that greatly benefit himself and his career while screwing over other players.
Unless many ownership groups are willing to endure the second apron penalties AND actually able to build competitive rotations under the new tax restrictions, teams with the best chances of contending will be those with multiple star players on undervalued contracts(most likely rookie contracts).
Furthermore, current teams with multiple players on Max/Supermax contracts are essentially handicapped with very limited flexibility to make roster moves. Six of the Eight highest spending teams in the NBA this season were Western conference teams seeded above the New Orleans Pelicans, CJ's current team, for most of the regular season.
Most of those teams have major decisions to make this offseason and over the next 5 years or so:
  1. GSW is likely to move on from either Poole, Draymond, or Klay in the next 2 offseasons unless Draymond and Klay commit to pay cuts.
  2. The Clippers had an arguably incomplete roster for most of the season made worse by the number of games PG and Kawhi missed.
  3. The Mavericks main hope of contention lies in retaining Kyrie but roster constructing beyond that will be difficult.
  4. The Suns have 2 of the biggest stars in Durant and Booker but the rest of the roster is seriously lacking and they are probably stuck with DA's contract.
  5. The Lakers have key players that must be resigned and if they can't compete next season Lebron likely moves on.
  6. Denver is actually lucky to have their two most important guys on the books for only $80 million-ish combined for at least the next few years.
So basically CJ's decision as the players representative is leading to the weakening of 5/6 teams considered to be perennial contenders in the West, meanwhile CJ's team the Pelicans have some of the best value contracts in the NBA (when healthy). Furthermore, the Pelicans had an incredibly hot start to the season and had a chance at a high seed before Zion went down and even after made it to the play-in tournament.
Looking back to 2016 now, in my opinion CJ was not a number 2 option for a true contender but still got a max contract extension. Under the new cap rules, how many guys of CJ's caliber will get max contract offers? Probably only guys on teams without 2 real star players or small market non-contending teams, since if the Celtics resign both Tatum and Brown to max deals they will be on the books for ~$110 million. CJ is now 31 years old, on the back 9 of his career with this Pelicans team probably being his last chance to win a ring while making a lot of money. He can't play defense and he's probably only the 3rd best player on his team, but their main veteran presence. You could argue that between the 2016 CBA and the new CBA, things could not have gone better for CJ's career as he has maximized his earnings and now placed himself in a position to secure a championship legacy if he can win in NO.
However, a player of CJ's caliber may find themselves completely screwed over in a couple years with most NBA teams paying 2 guys money in the $100 million dollar range while the 13 other guys fight for scraps.
Taking off my tinfoil hat for now to say I was a fan of CJ and his runs with the Blazers. I also enjoy his media appearances. However, especially because he made a point of speaking out regarding his mistakes with the 2016 CBA, if this new CBA plays out as some fear CJ should become one of the more hated figures of the contemporary NBA. There are many possible benefits of the deal including parity and player retention, but the downsides of possibly eroding the middle class of NBA earners and the fact that this change seems to greatly benefit CJ suggests he probably should not have been in the driver's seat for the negotiations either this year or in 2016. The conflict of interest is apparent in both cases and if CJ wins a ring with the Pelicans his decisions should fall under greater scrutiny.
Let me also say I'm a complete amateur and I don't understand how the NBPA works or how front offices will respond and adapt to these changes, but to my untrained eyes it seems that the priorities of the NBPA in each of the last 2 CBAs have coincided very neatly with CJ's personal priorities.

2023.05.30 22:48 justdontknow1992 31m, I have no idea what to do with my life. I’m not interested in anything and feel soulless and empty. What practical steps can I take to find a genuine interest in something to pursue a new career?

31m live in Scotland (near Edinburgh) with my girlfriend.
I worked in heavy industry for 8 years earning £50k/yr for most of that in an environmental professional capacity. A profession that I fell out of touch with politically and personally. I quit and took up a simple admin job with the civil service that pays £23k/yr. I only have a £50k mortgage left on my property as I’ve always saved and overpaid, so it’s currently a liveable salary. I also have no other debt which helps. I was going to KMS if I stayed in my previous job. My new job is incredibly relaxed, no stress, but very monotonous and unfulfilling.
I fear that both me and my gf may lose respect for me if I don’t start making moves towards a greater purpose/career path. I’ve been for long thoughtful walks, listened to podcasts, I’ve journaled, I’ve recently been to a careers event in my local city (Edinburgh) and I have absolutely nothing! I just can’t summon interest or passion for anything from my soul and it’s depressing the hell out of me. I feel completely stagnant and worthless. The only thing I have any extra curricular interest in is Pokémon cards, but I already have a side hustle doing that. Im very agreeable in nature and admittedly do not handle high amounts of stress or pressure that well, so I definitely couldn’t go through the climbing the corporate ladder path.
If anyone can give me some practical / psychological advice as to how to wrench genuine passion out of my soul I would be eternally grateful.

2023.05.30 22:42 experimenta_l My life is imploding, what do I do?

Hi! For context, I am a guy in my early 30's. I was an overachiever in my 20's, built a successful company, travelled the world, had the most incredible experiences, met a girl, bought a house and was earning a nice income and living a wonderful lifestyle. I hit 30 and suddenly things didn't feel right anymore. I'm now 32 and I've been ignoring it, hoping it will go away but the call is getting louder and I feel like I'm imploding and I feel so lonely in this and like nobody understands. What should I do and what is going on?
In more detail...
We've been together for 6 years. She was always less driven and less mature than me and has spent most of the relationship studying. She's about to finally graduate. She causes a lot of petty conflict in the relationship and sometimes it feels like it's low-level emotionally abusive. She's promised to go to therapy but it never really happens. I'm sad because I've grown a lot and I don't feel like she has and I'm pulled often into her trauma. I get a lot of attention from other girls and she will sometimes say things to make me doubt myself and it's starting to affect my confidence. But the idea of breaking up is devastating because I love her and I want this to work but I don't know how much longer I can carry her for.
I've lived in my city for most of my life. I bought a house and it's a little far out and I'm not loving it. I know I don't want to live in this city for my entire life but my company and staff are based here and my GF likes it. Uprooting is possible but it would mean replacing most of my team. I'm increasingly unhappy with where I'm living and not even sure I still want to live in the same country anymore. I hate the idea of spending my whole life in the same country but my GF doesn't ever want to leave.
My company is digital so I can work pretty much from anywhere. It's reasonably successful but if we relocated to a bigger economy, I believe it could be much bigger. I've been doing it a long time and know I don't want to do it forever, but I still have a lot more I want to do and achieve with it. I feel dissatisfied with the growth and don't feel particularly challenged anymore, although I am still passionate about it and want to see it/me grow. The pandemic hit us hard and lost quite a bit of momentum.
Overall I feel like things aren't right and like I'm suffocating. I'm so unhappy, and the idea of not changing things pains me. But the idea of changing things also pains me. I'm so confused and I wondered if anyone had any advice or had experienced anything similar? What would you do in my situation?

2023.05.30 22:33 Daaaking17 Is Jimmy Butler a Hall of Famer?

Jimmy Butler is once again the driving force for leading the Miami Heat to the NBA finals for the second time in 4 years.
Butler’s accolades are: 6-time All-Star, Eastern Conference Finals MVP(2023), 1 -time second team All-NBA, 4-time third team All NBA, 5x all defensive second team, Most Improved Player(2015), and NBA Steals Leader(2021).
Butler was never considered the best small forward at any point in his career due to playing the in the same era as Lebron, Paul George, and Kevin Durant BUT…
Butler has a track record of playing like a superstar in the postseason which has earned him the nickname of “Playoff Jimmy”. Butler in the regular season averaged 22.9ppg, 5.9reb, and 5.3 apg. In the postseason, Butler’s numbers increased by averaging 28.5ppg, 7.0rpg, and 5.7apg.
Is “Jimmy Buckets” a Hall of Famer???

2023.05.30 22:08 WherxDoIGo Is there any way I can get a credit card to start building credit?

Hi! I (22) recently graduated and am looking to get a credit card so I can build up some credit. Im not looking for one for money purposes, just to put regular expenses on and pay them off in full at the end of each month.
I currently live at home and work part time as I am still looking at future career options and hope to go travelling later this year - I earn about £8000 a year and pay £200 rent a month. Ive applied for "starter" cards, and done the soft search on money saving expert which will tell you cards you're eligible for and it always says im not eligible for any. I work in accounts, and the people I work with are saying I keep getting rejected because I literally have no credit, but how do I get a credit score if I cant get a credit card in the first place? do I just need to buy big things on credit (like from amazon) and pay it on time? do I need to earn more?
im not desperate for a card, but I do want to buy a house eventually (maybe in like 6-8 years) and I want to have a good solid credit score for that. any advice?

2023.05.30 21:40 rabbidearz Maxing Out your PM career?

Hi everyone,
There is a good bit of advice on getting into PM on this thread, but what are common approaches for career growth for those of us on the other end of the spectrum?
I'm a Senior Program Manager earning at the upper end of the PMI Salary survey (around $135k in the Southeast US), but I see others making $200k+. If I want to earn at that level, what's the best way to get there?
Should I hire an executive coach? Keep job hopping until I get to the salary range I'm aiming for? Find a mentor? Pick up additional skills (and if so, which ones? How do I identify the most valuable skills?)?

2023.05.30 21:36 TangerineThing1 My future has so many unknowns and it's keeping me up at night.

I'm terrified but also excited for my future. I have career plans, but it's a matter of if my parents allow me to follow my dreams to accomplish them. My escape plan no longer works anymore and I spent forever coming up with it, so now I'm back to square one. I don't even know if I'm going to graduate high school at this point because I'm not getting any help from my parents. If I don't finish 9th grade online I'll be "unschooled" by my mom, and that would make it even harder to get a job. My parents said if I were to even work at a grocery store they'd need proof I'm actively getting an education and I wouldn't have any proof if my mom unschooled me, which I think is what they want. It seems like everything I thought was going to go well now has something blocking me from achieving it, and that something is my parents. I don't know how I'm even going to be financially stable because I've done the math on salaries I'd earn from different places If my parents let me work, and it'd be nowhere near enough to live off of, and I don't know how much inflation will go up. I'm so stressed out and I could go on and on.

2023.05.30 21:29 Sweet_Ear_2827 Being an independent working woman and it's pressure which nobody wants to talk about

People want us to study and earn as well as men do but still the burden of starting a family and looking after the home falls on us women. They do not have any problems enjoying the benefits that come from the extra income from the woman working. But nobody wants to talk or even address the burden and dual expectations that fall upon us where we have to keep showing up at work as well as at home. Every body wants an educated earning woman but nobody wants to bear the consequence of it. Prioritising our career leads to marriage at a later age but yet again we are judged for marrying late or not having any kids, completely overlooking the fact that you can't always have the best of both worlds and times and social structures are changing.
Just wanted to vent about the expectations and burden that keeps falling on women. Tired of always justifying my choices and decisions.

2023.05.30 21:13 Intelligent-Ad-6025 The CDC's Most Recent Webinar On How They Plan To Treat Chronic Pain

The CDC’s and Other Government Health Agencies Skewer the Chronically Ill, Chronic Pain and Disabled Population; A Commentary on The Latest “Guidelines” From The CDC:
(please refer to webinar)
If you don't want to watch this whopping eight minute video about government ran agencies talking about how to run our health care services for those with chronic pain, chronic illness or disabilities. Or, if you have watched it but don't really know what it means, then I will just tell you what this about and what it means. Most of this is in response to taking away or banning in many instances, the use of certain medications used to treat chronic illnesses and chronic pain that has left people disabled. They are admitting the pull out of opioids/opiates as well as their attacks on other medications such as Benzodiazepines, ADHD medications and in some states they have gone as far to reclassify muscle relaxers and Gabapentinoids as scheduled 2 narcotics. The fall out from this has left many chronic pain patients, chronically ill and disabled people without ANY health care, greater mortality rate, higher rate of homelessness, less functionality, poorer quality of life and many doctors that were not pill mills but still locked up in prison for the rest of their lives for running pain treatment centers in rural areas. They also bring up that, curiously, even though opioid/opiate prescribing is lower then it has ever been in US history, they are seeing a steep incline of illicit use of opiates amongst the adolescent demographic, to which they have never seen before. They do not understand this because young folks who have "muscle skeletal" pain are usually prescribed NSAID's or acetaminophen; they just can't figure out why the rate of illicit opiates in this demographic is higher then it has ever been when they are not even being exposed to prescription opiates. That's it they end that issue just sort of scratching their heads. According to their data if some one has not been exposed to prescription opioids/opiates these children shouldn't be doing this. According to their data NSAID's and Tylenol should be efficient enough pain relief for any and all types of muscle skeletal chronic pain conditions. I won't put words in their mouth or give you my opinion on why that is, even though my opinion would be based on some very good data, medical studies and other types of studies that have been conducted over the years. I will say that I think I shouldn't have to give anyone that opinion because I think the answer is obvious; keep in mind these kids are too young to have ever been exposed to opioids/opiate medications or crooked marketing strategies by Perdu. They go on to promote something called "healthy people by 2030" which is a government health based website that advocates for many healthy life practices and choices. One of those things is making sure that the chiropractic's industry stays open for customers, not for free at a charge, to make sure they are accommodating the needs of chronic pain patients. I am not sure why this is said and done because chiropractic treatment has been available and continues to be. They go onto say those with loved ones, friends and family that are chronic pain patients; empathy and sympathy is what is needed most. "Many times chronic pain sufferers will try to pretend they are not in pain. If this is your loved one or a friend or family member, make sure to have plenty of empathy and sympathy. Also pay attention to their body language, if they are rubbing the part of their body that is in pain or making facial expressions it's important to remind them not to over work themselves. That they need to take time to sit and rest; we need to get society to where we are stopping chronic pain at it roots". So what that means is that they expect everyone in society, employers, family, friends, loved ones, complete strangers the entirety of the health community to accommodate any all with chronic pain conditions (disability is not specified just chronic pain period). This is their answer, and the CDC is endorsing this, on how to treat chronic pain, chronic illness and disabilities in the absence of effective treatment (effective treatment being used currently is not discussed but current effective treatment implies without the use of opioid/opiate medications). Ok, so this is really confusing if you have not been keeping up with this stuff so let me fill you in on what this means in a deeper sense. As a person who has chronic pain, chronic illness or a disability. What you are supposed to do is make sure you are regularly attending physical therapy (cost estimate as much as $3,000 a session and as low as $45 for a "wellness" checkup that is only 30 min standard session is 1 hour fees vary depending on insurance, what company or if no insurance at all). Typically they recommend physical therapy once a week or every other week; although many primary and family care physicians understand once a month to be more practical for low or lack of income individuals (the CDC and Medicare almost demand once a week). You are also supposed to attend a gym and have an active membership. You are to seek a psychologist for cognitive behavioral therapy or psycho therapy to deal and manage your pain (costs on this can very widely as well as much as $200 a session). You are to see a psychiatrist to make sure your psychiatric needs are met with medications for mood management. You are also supposed to attend "mindfulness training" once a week; which is a fancy name for meditation. You are also supposed to attend either (and this is the only one they give options on) a chiropractor or get acupuncture done once a week. You are to follow up with your primary or family care physician to stay compliant on your meds (NSAID's, Tylenol, muscle relaxers, and then usually one of the following sometimes combined with one other thing but usually one; Tricyclic, SSRI, SNRI, anti-psychotic or anti-depressant that plays with neuro-nucleotides like Cymbalta, Amitriptyline, Nortriptyline, Effexor, Haldol as some examples, Steroids or Gabapentenoids such as Gabapentin or Pregabalin aka Lyrica). You are also supposed to see a pain management specialist at least once every other week (per CDC) for trigger point injections and nerve blocks or ESI's aka epidural injections (these can cost in a wide range as much as $5,000 for one injection the lowest I have personally seen is $2,000 for one injection to which some report as little as 4 hours of pain relief some injections patients report only 4 days of pain relief we are told these are supposed to relieve pain for as long as several months but really this is dependent on what pain condition you have and what is causing it and what type of injection is received for the injection). On top of all that they want to make sure that as a chronic pain patient, chronically ill or disabled to make sure to keep up with your social life by spending quality time with friends, family and loved ones. To make sure you are financially secure with either a job or disability/retirement benefits for those who apply (job is emphasized over over social programs). Lastly, to make sure you are eating healthy and getting between 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night (this is all per CDC and other government health agencies including CSMS for those whom are on retirement benefits). Now where were we, so essentially they want the entire society to let any one with chronic pain or illness or disabled to be allowed to go at their own pace. Allow for late appointments. Take breaks and rest as needed and avoid doing anything that causes or exacerbates chronic pain or illness and disabilities in the first place. They are not doing this as a policy they are doing this as a guideline so no company, corporation, business or any personnel is held to this by any legal measure. Once again I could insert my own take on this based on pretty solid evidence, but I think this is unnecessary as it should be obvious what the outcome of this will actually look like. I'll just ask this simple question; do you see an employer doing any of this for a customer or employee? Do you see all these different health care agencies accommodating to all their patients being late due to being slow and thus not punctual for this menagerie of different health care specialties the government health agencies want us to attend? The CDC seriously pushes for all, not just a couple, but all listed health specialties; and the other government health care agencies agree without question. They go on to talk about how they think the reason doctors feel so pressure by the CDC, DOJ and DEA in the helping of managing chronic pain or illness and disabilities is nothing more then they have not attended any of the CDC's seminar's; which are being updated for the fourth time in this single year. They say that doctors need to take time to understand and have deep conversations to understand their patients needs. That doctors need to be there for patients when in need of social rehabilitation and assistance such as obtaining a case worker, social worker or disability (which if you've been in this situation you know they will not do due to health insurance regulations, government interference, regulation or policy enforced by the company they work for or affiliated hospital, shortage on doctors due to covid and arresting so many for prescribing meds, health practices and administrations that run health offices running on a profit based model that basically demands that each patient visit only be 15 minutes to maximize the number of patients seen in one hour and legal issues in which many expert witnesses, colleges and other entities have sued doctors over the prospect of money which results in the termination of their job and license). Nope, none of that, it's all because they did not attend the CDC seminars that are continuously out of date and currently being "updated again" to ensure that doctors are staying compliant with the guidelines that are an unreasonable expectation at best and consistently changing. As one of the panelists says "after all these are not policies they are guidelines, and if no one knows how to work within those guidelines because they haven't taken the seminars they won't know how to implement them. We are really struggling with this one because when we passed the opiate prescribing guidelines for 2022 they were very strict and many states independently adopted these guidelines into law and policy that are different from state to state, but pretty much all do the same thing. We never intended them to be laws and policies but merely guidelines. When we released the 2023 opiate prescribing guidelines, we went back to the less strict guidelines resembling that of the 2016 opiate prescribing guidelines where the MME count was at 90MME instead of 50MME...we have seen no change in state accordance". These people act like our social safety nets are as accessible as over the counter Ibuprofen, when in fact they almost as accessible as the opioids/opiates they sought out to completely ban and obliterate out of our society regardless of the consequences is has had on health care providers and the chronic pain or illness and disabled people they were used to give back quality of life, pain relief and functionality. Andrew Klodney (one of the chief panel members that created the 2016 opiate prescribing guidelines) said "an entire generation needs to die in order for people to see my greatness". I don't think he meant to quote Hitler, but that is something Hitler did say; astonishingly Hitler also took opiate pain meds away from the chronically ill or in pain and disabled. Hitler also promoted "euthanasia" as a "humane and ethical way of helping those suffering to die with dignity". It wasn't until later many people found out he wasn't just euthanizing people who were in end of life care (or lack there of due to no opiates given to the general public, and only administered to his inner circle), as a humane and ethical way of dying with dignity; he was just killing anyone who had any kind of chronic pain, chronic illness, disability and that includes mental disabilities as well. Back on topic, the fact of the matter is our social safety nets, social rehabilitative services (SRS) like the SSA , food stamps, financial assistance and on have been slowly having their funding cut and certain facets of it being privatized over the years. The past ten years we have seen the most cuts and privatization of these programs then any other time in US history since their inception by FDR. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has not only been red taped but it is out dated. One of the reasons why you may have had your disability case denied is because the judge that decides on your case confirms the local job market with a job coach or vocational rehab specialist. The judge looks at your limitations and asks "based on this persons limitations, education and experience are their jobs in the local area this person can do and how likely is it that they can get one of these jobs?". The career specialist is financially incentivized to find a reason to deny a disability case for one. Two they do have to go off of what the current job market economy looks like, they only have to go off what it looked like since the ADA was last updated which was back in the 90's. This career specialist is absolutely reciting jobs that no longer exist and haven't existed since the late 90's or early 2000's and completely ignore the fact that things like pre covid door greeters are a thing of the past. They ignore the fact that job codes and other nifty legal loop hole language in job applications specifically designed to get around the ADA exist. They completely ignore that a vast majority of the republican party representatives have deregulated capitalism to the point of crony capitalism in the name of free market capitalism (give the employer the freedom to hire who they want and decide for themselves what is or is not a "reasonable accommodation"). This is so much to the point of government protections, I spoke with a disability discrimination attorney who said "the big corporations have got so much government protection and have been deregulated to the point I cannot even do my job. Many disability discrimination lawyers have changed their title or quit. There is no certainty or guarantee that anyone can hold a company accountable for disability discrimination anymore". To top all that off there are many company owned health care facilities, although this is not federally or state mandatory, have created policies where they are no longer taking private payers; people without health insurance. Some states are requiring each person who is disabled to reapply for disability every year, some states require that a person cannot be on disability for more then five years regardless of their disability statis. The state of Pennsylvania, to my understanding, has moved the retirement age up to 66 and the District of Columbia to age 67 some have considered even higher all the way up to age 71. Many states have cut food stamp spending or almost cut them all together to where many people who have been on food stamps for years have had their food stamps taken away from them entirely. In the state I reside in I was denied Medicaid due to the fact that, while he is my fiancé, we are not legally married and as far as they know he is nothing but a roommate. They denied my Medicaid claim because for a two person household, regardless of the relationship that person holds with you, one cannot make over the amount of $24,000 a year; I guess that is an acceptable amount for two people even when the money being made that is over $24k is not the person claiming Medicaid, but someone else's hard earned money. The mantra of the very conservative and traditionalist government when it comes to our social safety nets is one that would take us all the way back to the 1800's. Absent of major infrastructure where we all lived in small communities and everyone knew each other; they think it is the job of your friends, family and community to take care of you and not the government to which any one who has worked has paid taxes to support. The CDC and other government health agencies have made a catastrophe as the systems they are relying on are out dated, defunded and privatized. It is a system that essentially funnels people into homelessness and is one of the contributing factors as to why our homeless population continues to rise at what should be seen as 'at an alarming rate'. Which has led to outbreaks of diseases we have not seen since the 1800's like tuberculosis and cholera, due to all the human feces on the sidewalks and streets. I have been saying, it is a highly unsustainable system for the democrats to pretend they are the only party, take away pain meds which are the cheapest pain management regiment and most effective with limited risks comparatively, especially for those whom are disabled due to chronic pain and chronic illness and most likely to be unemployed or on disability. To take away opioid/opiate medications, act like they have the power to give all this untreated disabled patients with chronic pain and illness unfettered access to social programs when they do not have the ability to do this as every bill in the senate and congress put forward to do so in blocked, filibustered or expelled by the republican party. Along with that any headway progress that is made is undone on the state level where some states even redirect their social welfare funds to other entities like private home communities and private schools claiming "it stops early pregnancy and facilitates fiscal responsibility which helps homeless rates decline"; even though many chronic pain or chronic illnesses cannot be help or are caused by over working. Then the republican party red taps, defunds and privatizes our social programs. Then the republican party deregulates the market to where you cannot even hold a company accountable to nearly any laws at all. This is a system that is very dysfunctional as one is not guarantied disability income, health care, financial assistance, pain medication, employment and even if you do get employment there is no guarantee they have to do anything to accommodate your disability or health needs aside form allowing a person an inhaler for asthma or to make sure they can take their insulin during lunch. The CDC and the government health agencies that follow them blindly pretend that non of that is even ever an issue. In the webinar they even make claims that suggest if every one just lives as healthy as they possibly can, then no one would ever develop any underlying health conditions. I hate to be the arbiter of truth, but that is simply not true (that's me being nice it's BS with a capital B and we all know it). I don't know how we went from a society that understood snake oil pushers are everywhere to a society that might as well be saying we should live like the boy in the plastic bubble. Bubble or not the reality is as we grow old we fall apart and eventually we will die. You can live your life as healthy as humanly possible, and there is nothing wrong with that, but it will not stop anyone from growing old and dying nor will it stop all chronic pain or illnesses resulting in disability. Many of these things can be obtained genetically, many are from dangerous work environments that are physically intensive manual labor or repetitive and being overworked (70 hour work weeks are becoming the norm). Many times it is a combination of genetics labor. Being as healthy as you can by including (this is a real thing) waring SPF lotion inside can be helpful and lower risks but they are not a deterrent. We are incapable at this time of not only offering a suitable replacement for opioids/opiate medications, but we are also incapable at this point in time of having a society completely free of underlying health conditions such as chronic pain or illness and disability especially one where no one grows old and dies; one could easily argue we may never see such an existence as it may not even be possible. My final thought on all this is that I really don't care what kind of "guidelines" the CDC makes and other health agencies. Even if they make them into policy, how are they going to get an entire society and everything in it to accommodate (not even all) chronic pain or ill disabled people. People you don't even know, with so many conditions that cannot even be seen as they are internal. How is that even possible? Is that even possible or is this nothing more then fantasy or pipe dream? I know many people try their best and most have empathy and sympathy, but we can't even get what we already have to work in the favor of chronic pain or illness and disabilities to work now. Although many full able bodied people have the best intentions they have things going on in their life such as maintaining a sleep cycle, a social life and many of the above mentioned prescriptions given to chronic pain and illness people or those with disabilities by the CDC themselves. As the saying goes, there's only so much time in a day; and well there's only so many years to a life. Let us not deny the cold reality, taking care of a full grown adult with a chronic pain condition, chronic illness and disabilities is very arduous and taxing and most don't have the time or energy to take care of every chronic pain or illness disabled person for the 24/7 needs they may have. Let us also not pretend that every one out there has it in them to be 'the good Samaritan' especially multi-conglomerate corporations who hold a for profit model even if it is at the expense of another's well being or life and in this day age at the cost of our own society. There are many that will not engage with this, cut corners, do the bare minimum or just flat out not do it. They could be doctors, police they could be anyone within this society; ultimately it is a standard that cannot even be enforced and wont and I can pretty much guarantee that. This is the CDC's proposal of what to do since they took our pain meds away and chronic pain patients suicide rates have gone up 400%. They did this with no back up plan and since chronic pain patients and the chronically ill and disabled have had their health care turned into a joke with no resources to help. Taking away pain meds has also not caused a drop in the use and overdose of illicit opiates/opioids, it's gotten worse as many who seek their medical benefits take to the streets and become another number. The CDC members responsible for this just sit around scratching their heads like this couldn't possibly be due to the fact that they took away a safe supply leaving the entire population of society with either an illicit contaminated supply or the worst opioids or opiates possible which is buprenorphine (Suboxone) and Methadone; regardless if one is a recreational user or some one who needs them to function as close to a resemblance of their old life as possible for medical reasons; basically an entire rehash of prohibition and or the lead up to Nazi occupied Germany as if we have collective amnesia and haven't learned anything in the last 100 years at all.

2023.05.30 21:12 Mattswfc [M4F] Single Father Seeking Romance

Matt is a 23-year-old man who had lost many of what he perceived to be his 'exploring' years. He had missed the chance to truly experience college, drink until he blacked out, tried all the stupid stuff a teenager should experience. That was because he had a 3-year-old daughter named Jordyn who he had been solely looking after since she was 3 months old. Matt's ex was the person who decided that she wanted to keep the child, a decision Matt fully supported, but she abandoned the pair of them in their small apartment on winter's morning; never to be heard from again.
From that point on, he truly had to put in the hard yards, working tough jobs, trying to earn money to pay the bills and try and still develop a potential career; something he was slowly becoming successful at. The time he had with Jordyn were some of the best he ever could have, seeing a girl adore him and him being all that he could for her. But there was a clear hole in his life, a partner who he could spend time with, a supporting hand, and someone to have fun with. Fun was missing from his life and he was craving it, hopefully sharing it with someone as well.
I'm hoping to find someone who would want to play as Matt's potential love interest for a role centred around romance, personal development and how intimate people's relationships are with one another. I'd like it to be centered on the plot but I would like some smut in there when it fits the role, the balance we can develop once we know how the role plays out.
Given the age of Matt, I'd love your character to be around their early 20's and it goes without saying, no irl under 18s. I can write comfortably over or comfortably under the discord limit, it depends on what we find natural, but I only play in 3rd person.
If you're interested, please DM and I'll give you my discord user, excited to see your ideas and where we can take this!

2023.05.30 20:36 ToonSquadCaptain Let’s stop with the overreactions

People all over this subreddit and nba are freaking out about the Celtics, saying Jaylen Brown should be traded and the Celtics need to blow it up. Everyone chill.
Up to this point in their careers, the Jays have achieved more playoff success than almost any players up to this point in their young careers (4/6 of the last ECF, 1 Finals Appearance). The majority of you all are fans of teams would kill for that kind of playoff success.
Obviously, the Celtics need to tweak their supporting cast if they want to get over the hump. However, Tatum and Brown are entering their prime contention years (26/27 ~ 32/33) and both just shared their best individual seasons as pros.
Unless the Celtics FO knows Brown wants to leave Boston as a free agent, you do not trade him. You sign him to the $300 supermax extension (which he earned for being recognized as a top 3-4 player at forward this season), keeping him Tatum together as they enter their primes.
The most difficult thing to do in the NBA is to find and attract legitimate stars who are capable of leading consistently deep playoff runs - the Celtics already have that. Quite frankly, a lot of NBA GM’s would kill to be in this position with this amount of talent at their disposal.

2023.05.30 20:22 jimbobbypaul Ranking the Top 131 FBS Programs of the Last 40 Years: 87. Nevada

Main hub thread with the full 131 rankings
The year was 1976. Nevada, coming off a 3-8 year in Division II, hired a little known assistant from UNLV to be their football coach. He had returned to his alma mater where he played QB just 8 years prior. Chris Ault. Ault oversaw 2 transitions: From Division II to Division 1-AA in 1978, then again to Division 1-A in 1992. Ault was a wild success, running his patented pistol offense, making the Division 1-AA playoffs 7 times in 14 years, with an overall record of 122-47-1. Their final year in 1-AA, 1991, they overcame a 35 point 2nd half deficit against Weber State to win 55-49. Backup QB Chris Vargas led the comeback, and would become known as “The Comeback Kid”. He also donated part of his lungs to his brother-in-law in 2000. Be like Chris Vargas.

Nevada: 2-10 (-59.726) Overall Score: 8991 (87th) 
Nevada’s been in the FBS since 1992, so 31 seasons played since 1983. They were previously in the FBS (Division 1) from 1946-50, but that doesn’t fall under the 40 year timeline here. In their 31 seasons, they’ve made 17 bowls, which is 55% of the time. 7 titles means they win their conference 23% of the time. 5 titles came under Ault, the College Football Hall of Famer and easily the greatest coach in school history. Top NFL players include QB Colin Kaepernick, WR Nate Burleson, and OT Joel Bitonio.

Top 5 Seasons

Worst Season: 2000 (2-10 overall, 1-7 WAC)
New conference, new coach, new lows. Nevada moved from the Big West to the WAC with Chris Tormey, who previously went 32-23 at Idaho. There were early struggles, with a 7-36 loss to Oregon, 10-41 to #22 TCU, and 14-45 to Colorado State. They did get a 35-28 win over Wyoming. The season quickly got away from them though, after a 7-38 loss to rival UNLV. Cormey would go 0-4 against UNLV in his 4 years, which was inexcusable. Nevada got a late season win over Rice, but finished off with a brutal 3-38 performance vs Tulsa. Nevada finished last place in their new conference. Sophomore WR Nate Burleson was a breakout player though, with 921 receiving yards. Burleson went on to be an All-American in 2002, leading the nation in catches with 138, for 1629 yards and 12 TD. He was drafted in the 3rd round in 2003 and went on to have a solid NFL career and is an even better media personality than football player.
5. 1994 (9-2 overall, 5-1 Big West)
Chris Ault was in his 18th season at the time, with 1st year offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino. The two made magic happen, ranking 3rd in the nation with 37.6 PPG. Nevada started 9-1, with the only loss to Boise State, who was in Division 1-AA at the time. Boise would join Division 1-A in 2 years, but in 1994, was a division below and went 13-2 and made the title game. Nevada had rolled through the rest of the Big West, mostly beating teams that finished with losing records, but did beat 6-5 Pacific 38-26. Heading into the final week, Nevada had already won a share of the Big West title, but faced rival UNLV, who was 5-4 (4-1 Big West) and looking to get a share themselves. In the most hyped game between the two ever, UNLV pulled off the upset, winning 32-27 in a game now known as the “Red Defection”, which I talked about in UNLV’s post. Nevada still finished the year 9-2, with a share of the Big West title. QB Mike Maxwell led the NCAA in passing TDs, throwing for 3537 yards 29 TD 15 INT. RB Marcellus Chrishon ran for 1000+ yards in just 9 games, and WR Alex Van Dyke, a future 2nd round pick, caught 98 balls for 1246 yards and 9 TD.
4. 2020 (7-2 overall, 6-2 Mountain West)
Nevada was expected to be a solid team in 2020, returning talented young QB Carson Strong. Because of covid weirdness, their schedule was anything but regular, and ended up playing all 8 regular season games against Mountain West opponents. Because of this, there was little room for error. They did as well as they could, starting 4-0, set to face 3-1 San Diego State, who was the division favorite. There were no divisions this year because of covid, but SDSU was still a favorite to qualify for the title game. A 26-21 lead heading into the 4th for Nevada held for the final 15 minutes, and they improved to 5-0 with a conference championship appearance in sight. At 6-1, they’d unfortunately lose 20-30 to an upstart 5-0 San Jose State team that would go on to win the Mountain West. Nevada still made a bowl, beating 6-5 Tulane 38-27 to finish 7-2, and 34th in my rankings. QB Carson Strong won Mountain West OPOTY, completing 70% of passes for 2858 yards, 27 TD, and just 4 INT. Many were talking about him as a future 1st round pick heading into 2021. RB Toa Taua, brother of legendary Nevada RB Vai, had a solid year with 675 rushing yards in 8 games, earning 2nd Team All-MWC. Toa went on to have a consistent 5-year career in which he amassed 3997 rushing yards, 4th in school history only to his brother, Chris Lemon, and Colin Kaepernick. Strong formed a strong connection with WR Romeo Doubs, now on the Green Bay Packers, who had 1000+ receiving yards and 9 TD in just 9 games. Overall, 10 players made 1st/2nd team all-conference.
3. 1995 (9-3 overall, 7-0 Big West)
This was right after the 1994 season, where Nevada went 9-2 but lost on the final day to rival UNLV, forced to share the conference title. They left no doubt in ‘95, outpacing UNLV 55-32 en route to a 7-0 Big West season and sole owners of the title. In week 3, 2-0 Nevada hosted Gary Pinkel’s Toledo, losing 35-49 in what previewed the bowl game later on. After then dropping a game to SDSU to fall to 2-2, Nevada averaged a whopping 48.4(!) PPG in their last 7 regular season games, going 7-0 with wins over 2nd placed Southwestern Louisiana and 3rd placed Utah State. That set up a rematch with Toledo in the bowl, who was now #25 and 9-0-1. In the first overtime game in college football history, Toledo won again, this time closer at 40-37. Gary Pinkel completed an undefeated season with the Rockets, while Nevada finished 9-3. The offensive numbers were again staggering, even better than 1994. Nevada ranked 3rd in the nation in PPG with 43.4. QB Mike Maxwell led the NCAA in passing yards with 3611 (in just 9 games!) and 33 TD to 17 INT. WR Alex Van Dyke had an unbelievable year, with 129 catches for 1854 yards and 16 TD. In just 11 games! If he played a 13 game season like teams do today, his stats would extrapolate to 152 catches for 2191 yards and 19 TD.
2. 1996 (9-3 overall, 4-1 Big West)
As you can tell, Nevada was balling from 1994-96. New head coach Jeff Tisdale, a former All-American QB for Nevada in the 70’s, took over for Ault, who continued in his role as Athletic Director, which he had been in since 1986. There was no drop off offensively, averaging 42.9 PPG (2nd in the nation), but the defense gave up 8 less PPG, going from 31.2 allowed in 1995 → 23.8 in 1996. QBs John Dutton and Eric Bennett alternated throughout the year, coaches trying to decide who was the right fit to take over for Mike Maxwell. Both were solid, and combined for 3907 passing yards 34 TD 11 INT. Nevada started 1-2 with losses to Pac-10 opponents Oregon and Cal, but then started to wipe through the schedule. Nevada went 7-1 the rest of the way in the regular season, with 25+ point wins over UNLV, Boise State, North Texas, New Mexico State, Utah State, and Arkansas State. The only Big West loss was 15-24 to Idaho, who finished 3rd in the conference. Nevada tied with Utah State at 4-1, sharing the conference title, but got the better of them in a 54-27 win. An 18-15 win over 8-3 Ball State in the bowl clinched Nevada’s first ever bowl win, and they now have 5 more since. LB Mike Crawford nabbed the game-sealing interception, and was the game’s MVP, logging 14 tackles and a forced fumble to go with the INT.
1. 2010 (13-1 overall, 7-1 WAC)
I said that Kansas might be the team with the most obvious “best” season, but Nevada’s up there too. This was a dream season, almost like a Hollywood script. Nevada was a very good team entering 2010, picked to finish 2nd in the WAC, but EVERYONE was picking Boise to win the conference. Not just the conference, but to possibly contend for a national title. That’s what the Broncos did, starting 10-0 and #3 in the nation, getting as high as #2 at one point. Back in Reno, Nevada expectedly started 2-0, setting up a Friday night game hosting Cal. I remember watching it, a Cal fan at the time, hoping the Bears would improve to 3-0, but Colin Kaepernick and RB Vai Taua ran all over our defense, posting 299 rushing yards between the two of them in a 52-31 win. A 27-13 win at BYU the next week put Nevada in the AP Top 25 at 4-0. They’d beat up on bottomfeeders UNLV and San Jose State before heading to Hawaii, but lose a trap game to the upstart Rainbow Warriors, who won 27-21 with almost no one watching the 11:30 PM EST start time game. Nevada kept their focus though, and won 2 more to get to 8-1 and back up to #21. A win over 6-2 Fresno State, a traditional WAC power, was huge, with the Wolfpack taking a 35-34 lead with 5 minutes remaining. After a 52-6 win over New Mexico State, the Wolfpack were 10-1, and #19 in the nation, having one of the best seasons in school history.
Then came the Boise State game. Nevada had finished 2nd in the WAC for 2 straight years, unable to get over the Bosie hump. Boise State was the class not just of the WAC, but of all the non-AQ schools in the BCS era. They were the team that finally had a chance to break not into just a BCS bowl, but the national title game. Nevada was the home team and wasn’t going to just lie down, but this Boise team was, at the time, the best non-Power 6 team we’d ever seen. Boise didn’t disappoint, galloping out to a 17-0 lead early. Taua cut it to a 10 point deficit in the 2nd quarter, but Boise RB Doug Martin immediately responded with a 51 yard TD run to send it into halftime at 24-7. With the offense stalling, Kaepernick finally broke off an 18 yard TD run on 3rd and 6 with 1:30 left in the 3rd quarter to make it 24-14. Following a defensive stop, Nevada got the ball back to start the 4th. Receiving an end-around lateral 12 yards behind the LOS, with 3 tacklers to beat, WR Rishard Matthews evaded them all and took it 44 yards to the house. 24-21. With 5 minutes to go, Nevada made it 24 all. Boise, who hadn’t scored all half, put the ball in Doug Martin’s hands and let him do the work, taking a screen pass 79 yards for the go-ahead TD. In response, Kaepernick drove the length of the field, 15 seconds to go…Touchdown, Nevada! With 13 seconds left! Will they go for 2…? No.
Boise State ball with 9 seconds to go, both teams preparing for OT. Kellen Moore throws up a PRAYER for Titus Young, nearly 60 yards in the air…and Young LAYS out for the catch, down to the Nevada 10. 1 second left, 26 yard FG, Boise with one of the best kickers in school history, game over. Except it wasn’t. Kyle Brotzman hit it wide right. OVERTIME. The stadium was shaking. 3rd & goal in overtime for Boise, incomplete. Brotzman comes back out, this time from 29. WIDE LEFT. As Joe Tessitore put it, “this is turning into a disaster”. On the other side, Nevada kicker Anthony Martinez lined up for a 34 yard FG for the biggest win in school history. Right down the middle. Nevada wins it 34-31 in OT, pulling off one of the biggest upsets of the 2010s and winning a share of the WAC title, against all odds. Nevada won their last regular season game against Louisiana Tech and the bowl against Boston College to finish 13-1 and #11 in the AP Poll.
The offense averaged 41.0 PPG while the defense gave up just 21.4. Kaepernick won WAC OPOTY, throwing for 3022 yards 21 TD 8 INT with 1206 rushing yards and 20 TD on 7.0 YPC. Taua was 1st Team All-WAC with 1610 rushing yards and 19 TD, finishing his career as Nevada’s all-time leading rusher with 4588 yards. DE Dontay Moch was in contention for WAC DPOTY, with 8.5 sacks and 13.5 TFL. Overall, this turned out to be a loaded Wolfpack team, with 9 players drafted over the next 3 years, including Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance.

5th Quarter

Do you remember that insane 2010 game vs Boise, and that Nevada team with Kaepernick/Taua? What do you think about Nevada in general, with the success they’ve had running the pistol and Chris Ault’s legacy?

2023.05.30 20:20 smashitit My Story... Pls read.

Please read this. This is my heartfelt post.
I'm 25(M) from Andhra Pradesh, India.
Anxiety & Depression ruined my life. Anxiety & Depression robbed everything from me. I have anxiety from my teenage years and I'm suffering with depression from 4-5 years.
I had a breakup. More than a girlfriend, she is my best friend. It's the same for her too.She supported me in my darkest days, she encouraged me, she loved me. She ended this relationship .I can't blame her though she had enough of this, she tolerated for so long. I have my toxic traits and she suffered from those traits. I miss her very badly. From talking/chatting every day to not knowing her whereabouts and how she is doing ... And how is her health etc..etc.. I'm just dying with these thoughts. She is the first thing that comes to my mind when I wake up and last thing before I go to bed. She comes in my dreams that we are still together only to wake up to reality and it feels like somebody is poking the broken pieces of my heart. It's been more than seven months since the breakup and I'm still having dreams that we are still together and I miss my best friend and I feel so much pain.I don't know how many times I've cried in these seven months. I can't describe my pain in words.My mental illness ruined this relationship , I ruined this relationship. I hate myself for this. I miss her so much. This is a huge setback for me. I'm grieving every day for this loss.
I completed my graduation with commerce degree in 2018. I don't have any work experience. I never had a job. I never even tried to get a job sincerely because my anxiety won't allow me to do it. The closest thing I did to get a job was in last year. I joined a course & learned very easily but never applied or proceeded to get a job based on that. I get overwhelmed at the thought of getting a job. I sabotage things. I hate myself. I didn't do it intentionally but people who know me think that I'm arrogant or lazy. But they don't know how much I suffer.. how much I feel bad for myself for not able to do be function properly inspite of my issues. I want to get a job. I'm interested in software field. But I don't know if I will able to land a job in that field because my degree is based on commerce and I have a huge 5 years career gap. Add to this the current job market scenario in India. Idk if I get anything. Moreover I really don't know if I like working in that software field or not. I don't know what kind of work suits me. I really don't know and it sucks. I don't have the energy to do even the small tasks in my day like I'm skipping eating even though I'm hungry because I don't have the energy to eat. I wonder how I'll gather myself and put so much work & energy into learning new things/ courses and try to get a job on it. it's so much overwhelming. People dont value me coz I don't have a job. My worth is based on my earning. Moreover I like to study. I'd love to study and do my masters than to get a job. I've some ideas on what to study but yeah I don't know if I really want to study or do a job or it's another ADHD thing.
I have anxiety for more than 10 years. I have depression from past 4-5 years. I suffer with OCD and it's the worst part. I suffer with different kind of dark thoughts but homicidal, sexual intrusive thoughts are the worst. I know I'm not my thoughts but I suffer so much from these thoughts. I've so much emotional pain.I'm literally afraid of so many things.I have so much shame , guilt , self loathing. I suffer with so many physical symptoms. I have headaches in temple area. My head feels heavy all the time. I have stiffnes in neck area. Of late my cognitive function is declining. I'm forgetting alot of things and memories. Sometimes I'm stuttering too. I'm struggling in taking simple decisions.I helped & help people alot.People suck they forgot everything I've done for them and only remember the thing I haven't done for them even though I didn't do it because of my mental health. It's sad.
Help for mental illness here sucks and mediocre. I tried therapy two times. Both sucked. I tried everything I can. I have a lot of awareness on mental health in general. I tried journaling, I went to gym, I tried meditation , I try to socialize, I played video games,I used to do walk 2-8 kms per day every day before this breakup. I checked my harmone levels & blood tests. Apart from therapy I also have made calls to mental health/ suicide hotlines and spoke with them for countless number of times( atleast 200+ hrs in 3-4 years). I tried everything. I really fought to get myself better.
I sabotage everything.. every single good opportunity.. I sabotaged so many good things in my life with my mental illness I hate myself. I ruined my relationship. I don't know whom to blame myself or my mental illness or both. It ruined everything for me.
Lost my father to cancer in 2018. Suffering with mental illness for a very long time. One person abused me emotionally for 6 months in 2021. Breakup with my sweetheart in Oct, 2022. Another person abused me very badly ( even though he knows what I'm going through) in Jan, Feb of this year. I'm a sensitive and weak person.I didn't sign for any of this but I tried as much as I can.
This breakup is the final blow on top of everything I'm going through. I'm just tired of this pain. My mother and brother love me so much and they support me very well. They know my situation but I didn't tell them I'm suicidal. I'm just sleeping on my plan since January. I'm just pushing my end date. I'm just worried if my mother survives this pain or not. what happens to my brother? I'm just rotting every day for them.
I should have been gone 1 week back but I pushed myself again one last time coz I'd love to see the Spiderman : Across the Spiderverse movie and also I like football very much. I want to see the UCL final.Football kept me going in my worst moments. I'd love to see how Real Madrid plays with all the new signings in next season. I'd want to do and see so many things. I feel like if I continue with my life there are too little positives and more negatives. I have so much pain. I hate myself. I can't live for myself and I can't die for the sake of my family. I'm stuck.It's horrible.I'm overwhelmed and hopeless. I think about suicide every moment of the day.I only see this way out for my pain. I'll do it soon.

2023.05.30 19:12 slate15 Join the International Simulation Football League!

First off, I want to thank the MiamiDolphins mod team for allowing this post!
The 41st season of the International Simulation Football League has just come to an end, and the offseason starting means that it is a great time to create a player and join! The ISFL is a free online sim league where you create a professional football player and control their journey through the pros from pre-draft to retirement. With over 30 player archetypes to choose from, you can be anything from a pass-catching running back to a ball hawking safety or even a strong legged kicker.
Your player will compete in games (simulated using Draft Day Sports: Pro Football 2021) throughout the week that premiere on our YouTube channel nightly. Each 16-game season lasts about 6 weeks, including playoffs, followed by a 2 week offseason. Complete stats are recorded on the league index, and we also have cool user-made tools to keep track of historical records and our very own Hall of Fame.
With hundreds of players and over 20 teams across the developmental and major leagues, the ISFL is also an active online community. Joining a team is not only a chance to see your player succeed, but also to hang out with fellow users in the Discord server that serves as your team’s locker room. You’ll be joining a tight-knit group of like-minded people who enjoy getting a bit nerdy about football and root together for your players when they take the simulated field.

Sounds Great! How Do I Start?

If you want to jump in right away, a great place to start is to join the ISFL Rookie Discord. Our team of rookie mentors will be happy to answer any questions and assist you with creating your player and getting started on your ISFL career! If you want to read more about the process first, we have a great Rookie Guide written up on the league forums, or a short version on our subreddit, SimulationFootball.

What Happens After I Create My Player?

After making your player, you'll be scouted by teams that are entirely run by real people and drafted to a developmental team in the DSFL Draft on Thursday, June 8. Just like the games, the YouTube channel streams all our offseason events including drafts, awards shows, and the Prospect Bowl that your new player will compete in!
During your player’s career, you can improve their attributes by spending 10-15 minutes completing optional tasks each week, like predicting the winners of each game or mocking the 1st round of the draft. The league is 100% free - there is no "pay to win" and nothing costs real money to unlock. You will earn fake league currency through your player's contracts or through creating content like media (ranging from statistical breakdowns to mock drafts to fun fluff pieces), graphics, or podcasts. You can use it to further upgrade your player and make fun purchases like collectible trading cards of ISFL players!

The Presidency of Winfield Scott
Winfield Scott was a distinguished American general who served in three wars and was the Whig Party’s presidential nominee in 1852. He defeated Democrat Franklin Pierce in a close election, becoming the 14th president of the United States. He was known as Old Fuss and Feathers for his insistence on proper military etiquette, and as the Grand Old Man of the Army for his long and illustrious career.
Scott inherited a nation divided over the issue of slavery, which threatened to erupt into civil war. He also faced challenges from abroad, such as the Crimean War in Europe and the expansion of British and French influence in Asia and Africa. Scott’s presidency was marked by his efforts to preserve the Union, promote American interests overseas, and reform the military and civil service.

2023.05.30 19:08 Zakr0bi Confused about my career options

I have completed my undergraduate with a major in economics however I'm quite confused about what I should actually be doing. Should I pursue my master's? Should I work? Should I change my major? (I have an interest in Disaster Management and Data Analytics).
Inherently what i think I would love to do professionally is to be a freelance journalist or transcriber and hopefully earn enough to travel around the globe for a few years. I never liked the lifestyle of going to a workplace and have been travelling with family for quite some time but it's not as frequent as i would prefer it to be (probably once every 6 months).
I generally want to pursue a career in some field that lets me roam from place to place or atleast pay me enough to fulfill my dreams. As you can probably judge from this lackluster post I'm just not sure what to do. Any reply, advice or suggestion is well appreciated.
