2023.06.07 11:07 Alb1rdy Chased.

Last week a colleague of mine asked me what was the most creepy thing I have experienced and I was reminded of this story and thought I should share it here. English is my second language, so sorry for the mistakes.
This takes place around 13-14 years ago. My parents and sister had gone on vacation and left 14-15 year old me (M) to take care of the house and our dog. I personally decided to stay back, since I could then game for a week, watch movies and party. Typical teenager stuff.
A few days into the week, I have been staying up late either gaming or watching movies (honestly can't remember), when I decide to go for late night walk with the dog, so he can do his business and I can sleep a bit late instead of waking up early and walk him then. That night it was a full moon, you know the kind, in which everything is lit up by the moonlight and you can almost read street signs from just the pale light from above. My parent's backyard led directly out to a small forest, which was part of our local park. After few hundred meters of walking through the forest, it would lead you to a large field with a small seasonal open kiosk and a small gravel path on the other end of the field from the forest exit. I made my way through the forest with my good boy letting his blatter loose on every third tree or so, until we reached the field. I had brought a ball of some kind with me, so we could play catch on the field to tire him a bit down (sheperd dog problems, you know?). When we reached the field it was completely lit up, so I assumed it would be the perfect late night conditions to play catch. As I reached down to remove my dog's leash, he began to growl towards the distance. I looked up and towards the gravel path and the kiosk. A man completely cloaked in darkness stood there. I remember his silouette gave away some of his features. He had a large coat and a wide hat, but everything else was just.. Darkness? Void might be a better word for it, because when I starred at him, there was just nothing. I could read the large white letters on the kiosk, which said "icecream" in my local language, but I could not see a single feature on this guy. A thing worth mentioning is, that my dog prior to that has only ever growled at lawnmowers and for some reason our ironing board. He had never shown aggression towards a human. But here we stood, him growling with his fluffy coat spiking out and his back arched, growling. The large dark figure then started to move away from the gravel path and towards us. Slowly increasing it's speed. When he was about 200 meters away, I could still not make out any of it's features and I started to feel panic forming inside my chest. My dog started backing away and began to whimper instead of growling as the silouette moved closer. My nervousness build up and I shouted "who goes there?".
The siloutte sped up even more and took it's arm out just reaching forward while it ran. I could now see it was over two meters tall as it was now within 50 meters from me. My dog frantically started to pull me back in it's leash towards the forest. It was here my panic took over and I ran so fast, that both flip flops I was wearing broke. Barefooted I ran as fast I could home without looking back once. As soon as I got in doors, I shot all blinds down, turned off most lights and hid in the bathroom with my dog for an hour while feeling the panic attack taking over me. It was only when the adrenaline settled, that I could feel the pain of my feet. Cut up by sprinting barefooted through the forest. I don't know what it was that night. I only know, that my dog saved me from whatever it was.
Every now and then, when I remember this event, I still get a inkling to fear the void.
My good boy died of old age a few years ago, so to him: Thank you Red Leader, not only were you the best dog a kid could ever want, you saved me and you will be missed.

2023.06.07 11:04 lechatheureux The Tonpa Kingdoms Part 2 (The Kingdoms of Jangshun and Monyul)

Check out part 1 for context
The Tonpa Kingdoms Part 1 (Overview and The Gods) : worldbuilding (reddit.com)
There are 5 connected Kingdoms that have Tonpa as their main religion these are.
A Place of snow-capped Mountains and green Valleys, said to be built upon the ruins of the ancient Jungar people who controlled much of the area of Jangshun and the nearby kingdoms of Monyul and Taishigang.
Very little is known about the Jungar, their ruins are scattered throughout the landscape of Jangshun, and are often characterized by simple stone structures, pottery shards, and other artifacts. Based on these remains, it is believed that the Jungar were a relatively simple society, with a lifestyle that revolved around farming, herding, and other basic activities.
Despite their lack of sophistication, the Jugar are an important part of the history and culture of the region many myths and legends have grown up around them, the people of Jangshun often see the Jungar as a symbol of the enduring spirit of the region, and take pride in the fact that they were able to survive and thrive in a harsh and unforgiving environment. In addition to their physical remains, the Jungar have left a lasting impact on the people of Jangshun in other ways. Their language, customs, and traditions are thought to have influenced the culture of the later kingdom, and many people still feel a strong connection to the Jagun and their way of life.
The Capital of Jangshun is called Druktse, founded by Dragon Priests and the legendary Namgyal dynasty the city is known for its unique architecture, with buildings made of wood and stone, intricately carved and painted with colorful designs and motifs, the streets are narrow and winding, with prayer flags fluttering in the breeze and the sound of temple bells ringing in the air.
At the center of the city is the Royal Palace of Jigme Wangchuk, a majestic building that serves as the residence of the Royal Family, the palace consists of several wings and halls, each with its own specific function. The main hall is the center of political and ceremonial activities, where the king held court and received important guests. The royal family's private quarters were located in a separate wing, with opulent living spaces and lavish decorations.
One of the most impressive features of the palace is the Eagle Tower, a tall structure that houses the elite Eagle Guards, who were responsible for the king's security the tower is covered from top to bottom with intricate carvings of the bird of prey.
The palace is surrounded by lush gardens and fountains, and it is guarded by soldiers in traditional Eagle attire, the Eagle Guards of the palace of Jingme Wangchuk are an elite group of soldiers tasked with protecting the king and the royal family, known for their fearsome reputation and exceptional combat skills, the Eagle Guards are considered one of the most prestigious units in the Jangshun army.
The guards are named after the majestic eagles that inhabit the mountainous regions of Jangshun, and they were trained to emulate the hunting tactics of these birds of prey. They are adept at using the terrain to their advantage, and are particularly skilled at scaling steep cliffs and mountainous terrain to surprise and overwhelm their enemies. In addition to their exceptional combat skills, the Eagle Guards were also known for their loyalty and dedication to the royal family. They undergo rigorous training and were selected based on their physical prowess, intelligence, and character, to become an Eagle Guard, applicants must be graduates of both the School of the Father and School of the Dragon.
The Eagle Guards are outfitted in distinctive uniforms that featured a stylized eagle emblem, and they were armed with a variety of weapons, including bows, spears, and swords. They were also known to use eagle feathers and talons in their armor and equipment, as a nod to the unit's namesake.
Druktse is a hub of cultural and religious activities, with several monasteries and temples located throughout the city.
The most famous of these is the Tashicho Dzong, a stunning fortress monastery that serves as the seat of The Gyelpa (The Duke) the secondary ruler of Druktse and the center of Druk-Ta worship. The dzong is surrounded by high walls and towers, and is accessible through a grand gate that is guarded by soldiers. The interior of the dzong is a maze of courtyards, chapels, and offices, all connected by narrow passageways and staircases.
One of the most impressive features of Tashicho Dzong is its towering central fortress and monastery, which rises above the rest of the complex and can be seen from miles around. This fortress is home to the Dragon Priests and is one of the most important structures in Jangshun. The fortress monastery is also famous for its beautiful architecture and intricate artwork. The walls of the courtyards are adorned with colorful murals and paintings, while the chapels are filled with statues and other religious artifacts. Visitors to Tashicho Dzong can tour the complex and learn about Jangshun history and culture, as well as observe the daily routines of the monks who live and work there. The Monastery is open to the public during certain hours of the day, and visitors are advised to dress modestly and remove their shoes before entering the chapels. Even though the current royal family of Jangshun are connected to The Father, The Dragon holds a special place in Druktse.
The people of Druktse are known for their warm hospitality and their strong sense of community. They celebrate several festivals throughout the year, including the annual Tshechu festival, the 3 Gods Festival which features colorful dances and rituals performed by monks and laypeople.
To the north-east of the Kingdom lies the second biggest city in Jangshun, the city of Lhagyal, often called “The Fire-proof City”
Lhagyal is a mass of stone walls and buildings with precious little wood being used at all, the walls of the city are imposingly high and even the central palace is relatively flat and does not rise above the walls, there are 4 gates made of pure steel and those are the only entrances and exits.
Inside the city walls, the streets are narrow and winding, with tall, tightly packed buildings constructed from rough-hewn stone. The architecture is distinct, with flat roofs and ornate metal doors decorating the doorways and windows, many of the buildings are built into the city's walls, their backs resting against the ancient stones.
There is more to the city than what meets the eye. Beneath the streets lie a labyrinth of tunnels and catacombs, built for both practical and spiritual purposes. Some are used for storage or as escape routes, while others are filled with ancient artifacts and sacred relics. The catacombs are also home to a complex network of underground temples and shrines and busy streets that are home to underground residences and businesses.
Despite its rugged appearance, the city's architecture is a testament to its resilience. It has withstood numerous attempts at invasion over the centuries, including attacks by powerful enemies armed with the latest in siege weaponry. The city's fortifications are a marvel of engineering, designed to withstand even the most devastating attacks and yet, for all its defensive prowess, the city has never lost sight of its cultural heritage.
The most famous instance of this was when the neighbouring Confucian Kingdom of Jinyun attempted to invade Jangshun with its impressive military might, scores of loyal foot-soldiers hardened by decades of conflict and advanced siege technology that included weapons that used fireworks.
The city withstood months of warfare with Lhagyal earning its nickname of “The Fire-proof City” The stone structures withstood the fireworks and the hard rock of the walls withstood the Jinyun catapults, outside the city several guerilla efforts by the Eagle Guards, The Company of the Hand and The White Tigers from Monyul lending their support repelled attempted on-foot invasions by the hardened Jinyun soldiers.
In the south-west of Jangshun, near the borders of Monyul and Taishigang lies the town of Gyalpeling, a place revered by monks and pilgrims alike. Gyalpeling, meaning "Abode of the Victorious" is a small yet vibrant town located in a remote corner of the kingdom. Its strategic location, surrounded by imposing mountains and blessed with fertile lands, has made it a crucial hub for spiritual activities and monastic life. The town is centered around a grand monastery, which serves as the heart and soul of the community. The monastery, known as Samtenling Monastery, is a majestic complex of ornate buildings adorned with colorful murals, fluttering prayer flags, and the sound of chanting monks echoing through the air. It is a revered place of worship and learning, drawing scholars, practitioners, and seekers of wisdom from far and wide. The streets of Gyalpeling are lined with modest housing for monks, adorned with intricate woodcarvings and colorful paintings. The locals, known for their warm hospitality and deep reverence for Tonpa, every activity the townspeople engage in helps the monastery in some way, whether trading, farming or craftsmanship, every resident of Gyalpeling helps out the monastery in some way. The town also boasts natural hot springs, believed to have healing properties, which attract pilgrims and visitors seeking solace and rejuvenation. The pristine rivers and lakes surrounding Gyalpeling add to its enchanting beauty, serving as places for meditation, ritual ablutions, and scenic walks. Gyalpeling is not only a place of spiritual significance, but it also serves as a center of learning, with numerous scriptoria, libraries, and meditation caves where monks engage in intensive study, contemplation, and meditation, prospective monks come from all over the 5 Kingdoms to study in Gyalpeling, as monks educated within its walls are valued in any court of the Tonpa Kingdoms.
One of the most valuable cities in Jangshun isn't far from the capital, a short 1 hour horse ride east of Druktse stands the city of Jangtse, a jewel in the crown of the kingdom. Jangtse, meaning "Silver Peak" in the local tongue, owes its fame and prosperity to the rich veins of silver that run through the nearby mountains, making it a thriving center for mining and trade. At the heart of Jangtse rises a magnificent conical palace, known as Jang Potrang, or the "Silver Palace." The palace, glistening like a beacon atop the tallest hill in the city, is adorned with silver-plated roofs, walls, and pillars, reflecting the sunlight and casting a mesmerizing glow over the surrounding landscape. It serves as the royal residence, where the Count holds court and conducts affairs pertaining to the area between Jangtse and Druktse. The streets of Jangtse are lined with buildings that boast silver-plated facades, creating a surreal and shimmering sight as one walks through the city, often shining gold from reflecting the sunlight, the wealth of the city is evident in the intricate silver filigree work that adorns windows, doors, and rooftops of temples, mansions, and markets alike. The silversmiths of Jangtse are renowned for their craftsmanship, producing exquisite silverware and jewelry that are sought after by collectors and traders from distant lands. The city is a bustling center of commerce, with a vibrant market square where merchants from across the region gather to trade in silver, gemstones, textiles, and other precious goods. The sounds of bartering, laughter, and the clinking of silver coins fill the air.
The Armies of Jangshun are known for their ferocious foot-soldiers, the every-day rank and file soldiers of the Jangshun armies are regarded as the best in the region and are a feared prospect to face on any battlefield.
The soldiers of the army of Jangshun are highly disciplined and skilled in the art of warfare, and are renowned throughout the region for their courage and loyalty. They are trained in a variety of weapons and fighting styles, including archery, swordsmanship, and hand-to-hand combat.
It is said that the success of the army comes from the fact that many men and women who fight in it are from mountainous regions and are conditioned from a young age to move over mountainous land with ease, their armies can easily traverse land that would be impossible for normal armies to travel over, due to the fact that the soldiers know the land.
The army of Jangshun is led by a commander-in-chief, who is appointed by the common foot-soldiers and is responsible for the overall strategy and tactics of the army. Under the commander-in-chief, there are several generals and officers who oversee different units of the army, each with their own specific roles and responsibilities. The soldiers of the army of Jangshun are equipped with a variety of weapons and armor, including shields, helmets, and chainmail. They are also skilled in the use of traditional weapons, such as the da and the gochu, which are types of swords. In addition to their skills in battle, the soldiers of the army of Jangshun are also highly respected for their loyalty and devotion to their ruler and country. They are known for their strong sense of duty and honor, and are willing to lay down their lives in defense of their homeland. The army of Jangshun is often called upon to defend the kingdom against invading forces, and has a long history of successful battles and campaigns. Their reputation for courage and skill has earned them the respect of their neighbors and allies, and they are a source of pride and inspiration for the people of Jangshun.
One of the most famous regiments from Jangshun is the “Wheel of Steel” A heavily armored longsword unit founded by Princess Jamyang Daughter of King Kunga and Sister of King Yangchen of the Yeshe Dynasty after she travelled to Europe and witnessed people fighting in full suits of armor, this was a foreign concept in the areas around her and she implemented the idea with her Father's (And later Brother's) full support they were first deployed in aid of Taishigang who were experiencing an invasion from a nearby Dharmist Kingdom. The longswords cleaved through the invading forces lack of armor and their steel plates deflected blows.
Monyul is a land of vast open spaces and stunning natural beauty. The kingdom is home to a proud and fiercely independent people, who have built a rich culture and a strong military tradition, its plains are green and warm during the summer but snow is not uncommon in winter. Dharmaling is the capital city of Monyul and is nestled in the hills, surrounded by winding rivers and vast grasslands. It is a city steeped in tradition and culture, with a rich history that stretches back centuries.
Dharmaling was built as the northern most outpost of the Dharmist Indraprastha Empire but was conquered by Tonpa forces from a tribe that would eventually become known as the Monyul. The city is built around a central marketplace, where merchants from all over the known world come to trade their wares. The marketplace is a bustling hub of activity, filled with the sounds of bargaining and haggling, and the aromas of exotic spices and perfumes.
The Company of the Wind have their main offices in Dharmaling and use the bustling 10 storey wooden building to plan its operations throughout the known world. The streets of Dharmaling are relatively wide due to the constant horse carts that pass through them. The buildings are made of stone and wood, with intricately carved facades and ornate balconies. Many of the houses have flat roofs, which are used as outdoor living spaces during the warmer months. At the heart of the city lies the great monastery of The 3 Gods, unlike in other cities which have separate monasteries for the three Gods, this temple combines them as a display of unity between the three sects. The massive structure dominates the skyline, with its towering walls and intricate carvings. The monastery is home to a community of monks, who dedicate their lives to the study and practice of Tonpa. Surrounding the monastery are the homes of the nobility, who are known for their wealth and power. These grand estates are filled with beautiful gardens and courtyards, and are often adorned with intricate carvings and colorful murals. Outside the city walls, the landscape is dotted with small villages and nomadic encampments.

It is a place of pilgrimage for Monks, Merchants and laypeople from all over the world, and is also a hub of trade and commerce. The people of Dharmaling are proud of their heritage and their way of life, and are fiercely protective of their city and its traditions.
A 30 minute walk to the west of Dharmaling lies the Temple of Tong Thang, the Beehive Temple, as visitors approach the temple, they are greeted by the gentle humming of bees that buzz around the entrance, seemingly inviting them inside, the entrance is adorned with ornate wooden doors intricately carved with depictions of bees in flight, the temple is home to hundreds of bee colonies.

The Temple of Thong Tang is a place of worship dedicated to the reverence of bees and their significance in nature and the cycle of life, every day priests and priestesses of The Mother make their way to the temple to tend to the bees, bringing them water and sliced fruits, every year there is a festival outside the temple where priests and priestesses of Caihong distribute honey gathered from the bees.
Monyul is home to a large lake called Jangchub Tso, the lake is bordered by lush green forests and snow-capped mountains to the south-east, a product of Monyul's border with Taishigang.
On the edge of the lake there is a large city called "Gangri Thang", which is known for its fish markets and skilled boatwrights, nobles from the surrounding Kingdoms often commission boatwrights from Gangri Thang to build grand freshwater barges for them.
Several villages surround the lake, mostly fishing and farming communities, every spring fishermen from these villages make their way to Gangri Thang with hundreds of fish, hoping to hock their catch to fishmongers, tourists and Company of the Wind officers.
The fish they carry is mainly the several species of trout that live in the lake but a few of the lucky ones carry the Golden Mahseer, a gleaming fish variety that is said to be very difficult to catch, although the taste of the fish pales in comparison to the trout, the Golden Mahseer is revered for its scales that give off a vibrant golden glow, these scales are often used in ceremonial dress of the region adoring clothing and jewellery.
The people of Monyul are also skilled artisans, known for their intricate weavings and pottery.

  • Sacramento came in on the losing end of a pitching duel. Sacramento outhit Las Vegas going 6-4, but only Las Vegas got an extra-base hit. That hit was a double, which led to a 2-run single in the 5th inning leading to runs for the Aviators. But the River Cats only managed to get a run in the 8th, on two singles and a David Villar sacrifice fly.
  • Tyler Fitzgerald went 2-for-4 with a stolen base on the day. In four games in June, Fitzgerald has gone 7-for-18 with two walks to five strikeouts, but also has a steal in every game. Overall in Sacramento, Fitzgerald is batting .311/.394/.489 and has 12 steals without getting caught.
  • The other Sacramento 2-hit game was by Michael Gigliotti, who went 2-for-3 with a walk. Gigliotti has drawn a walk in each of his four games in June. That gives Gigliotti 24 walks to 26 strikeouts in 41 games, giving him a .367 on-base percentage and a .368 slugging percentage on the year, with a .250 average.
  • Sean Hjelle had the start, going 5.0 innings, with two runs on four hits and three walks, with just three strikeouts. Hjelle now has a 3.10 ERA in seven games since coming back to Triple-A. In 29.0 innings, he has struck out 20 with eight walks.
  • Nick Swiney didn’t allow any runs or hits in 1.2 innings, with a walk with two strikeouts. Swiney has a 4.35 ERA over six games in Triple-A, and has struck out seven to five walks in 10.1 innings.
  • Reliever Cole Waites’ run continues, without allowing a baserunner in the 9th, but also without any strikeouts. That’s nine games without a run allowed since returning to Triple-A. His ERA is now 4.66, and now has 16 strikeouts to 15 walks in 19.1 innings.

AA: Altoona 6, Richmond 4

Richmond Notes:
  • Altoona made a couple of late rallies to take this game from Richmond. Richmond was up 3-0 going into the 6th, but Altoona rallied to tie the game. Richmond scored a run in the 7th, but Altoona came back to tie it again in the 8th, and then scored two runs in the 9th to win.
  • The only Squirrel with multiple hits was Brett Auerbach, who went 2-for-4. It’s Auerbach’s first multi-hit game since May 23rd, when he had a 3-hit game. But mostly he’s had a disappointing season, batting .144/.199/.175.
  • Catcher Andy Thomas went 1-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base, and a sacrifice fly. It was just his second steal of the season, but also a new season-high for the catcher. Since the start of June, Thomas is 5-for-14 (.357) with a double and a home run, and overall is batting .219 with six doubles and five home runs.
  • Marco Luciano was 1-for-5 with the only Richmond extra base hit, notching his sixth double. Over 28 games, Luciano is now batting .160/.269/.370, with six doubles and five home runs.
  • Vaun Brown returned from missing a couple of days after getting hit by a pitch, going 0-for-4 with a walk, and a throwing error. Even with the 0-fer, Brown is still batting .341/.438/.610 in 11 games at Richmond.
  • Starting pitcher Landen Roupp threw 4.0 shutout innings, giving up a hit and two walks while striking out three. Roupp has a 1.72 ERA after six starts, with 22 strikeouts to six walks in 15.2 innings.

High-A: Postponed (due to Roommates)

Eugene Notes:
  • Well, this is unique. The Oregon Ducks are hosting the Super Regional this weekend, so the Emeralds have moved the coming series against the Dust Devils to Pasco, WA (Home of Tri-City). The series will now begin Wednesday, with today’s game made up on Saturday as part of a double-header. I wonder if Eugene will bat last in those games?

Low-A: San Jose 9, Visalia 7 (11 Innings)

San Jose Notes:
  • 1st round pick Reggie Crawford had his first rough start, but the San Jose offense ran all over Visalia to lead to an extra-innings win. San Jose collected seven steals on the day. San Jose had a 6-3 lead going into the 8th inning, but gave up three runs in the 8th to lose the lead, and both teams scored runs in the 9th inning to maintain the tie. In the 11th, San Jose notched two runs to take the win.
  • Reggie Crawford gave up three runs while getting hit hard, allowing two home runs on three hits in 1.2 innings, though with no walks allowed while striking out four. Those are the first runs he’s allowed in three games, so now he has a 5.06 ERA, with three runs over 5.1 innings. He still has not walked anyone while he has ten strikeouts.
  • Third baseman Anthony Rodriguez went 3-for-6 on the day, with all singles. He also committed his fifth error in his sixth game of the season. Rodriguez is now batting .360/.407/.560 with three doubles and a triple, with one walk and eight strikeouts.
  • Designated hitter Onil Perez was also 3-for-6 with all singles, and got two stolen bases. It’s Perez’s second 3-hit game of the year, with his first coming back on April 22nd. He now has a batting line of .308/.378/.400 on the year.
  • First baseman Matt Higgins was 2-for-5 with a double, his 10th of the season, as well as his 6th stolen base and his 5th error of the year. That boosts his batting line to .293/.376/.476, and now has 10 doubles, a triple, and six home runs, with six steals in seven attempts.
  • Center fielder Turner Hill went 1-for-5 with a walk, but also stole three bases. That gives him five steals in five games this season, while he’s 7-for-22 (.318) with two walks and two strikeouts.
  • Meanwhile, the big hit belonged to catcher Zach Morgan, who went 1-for-5 with his fourth home run of the season. Morgan has five doubles, a triple, and four home runs on the season in 34 games, with 26 walks to 28 strikeouts.
  • It was a scary scene for Diego Velasquez, who squared up to bunt the first pitch he saw, and the pitch was in on him, hitting him square on the front of the left knee. He went down and was in serious pain, but would stay in the game and took first base. However, he would be removed in the middle of the inning.
  • Working in relief, Hayden Birdsong got the lion’s share of the innings, not allowing a run in 4.0 innings, on three hits and a walk, while striking out five and hitting a batter. It was Birdsong’s first relief appearance of the season. He now has 64 strikeouts in 37.2 innings, with 21 walks.
  • Reliever Julio Rodriguez went 2.0 innings, striking out three while allowing just one walks and no hits. It was a strong bounceback for him after he gave up six runs in his previous game. But with no strikeouts, he now has 22 strikeouts to ten walks in 19.2 innings.

ACL: ACL Giants Black 4, ACL D-backs Red 3

ACL Giants Black Notes:
  • First baseman Guillermo Williamson went 2-for-3 with a strikeout. Williamson now is 3-for-6 with a double and a walk with two strikeouts after two games.
  • Left fielder Eliam Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a double. He now has gone 2-for-9 (.222) with a double and four strikeouts.
  • Second baseman Gustavo Cardozo went 1-for-2 with a double and a strikeout. This was Cardozo’s second game, but he came in as a pinch runner in his first game, so these were the 19-year old’s first plate appearances.

ACL: ACL D-Backs Black 1, ACL Giants Orange 0 (7 Innings)

ACL Giants Orange Notes:
  • Second baseman Jean Carlos Sio went 1-for-2 with a walk, and was caught stealing. It was his first hit in two games, and the 19-year old is now 1-for-6 (.167) with two walks.
  • Center fielder Estanlin Cassiani got the other Orange hit, going 1-for-3. He’s now 1-for-7 (.143) after two games. The 20-year old hit .375/.422/.415 in the DSL in 2022.
  • The starting pitcher was Brayan Palencia, who went 3.2 innings, allowing three hits and one walk with five strikeouts. The 20-year old is in his second season at the ACL, where he had a 4.33 ERA in 14 appearances last year, with six of them being starts. He’s in his second season in Arizona, when he hit .230/.259/.257.
  • Right fielder Cesar Quintas went 2-for-2 with a walk and a HBP. That means the 20-year old is now 2-for-5 (.400) with three walks to one strikeout.
  • Shortstop Ryan Reckley was 1-for-4 with a single (his first hit of the year), two strikeouts, and committed an error. He’s 1-for-7 with two walks and three strikeouts.
  • The starter was Ubert Mejias went 5.0 innings, giving up two runs, one earned, on six hits and a walk, with a strikeout in his pro debut. The 22-year old Cuban signee was officially signed in April, but had been talked about much of the winter.

DSL: DSL Giants Black 11, DSL Guardians Blue 10

DSL Giants Black Notes:
  • The most recent top international signing, center fielder Rayner Arias was 3-for-5 with a home run, a walk and a steal. The 17-year old is now 3-for-9 (.333) over two games, with a home run, a walk, a strikeouts, and a stolen base after two games.
  • Shortstop Yosnekiar Rivas was 1-for-3 with three walks, with his first home run. He’s 1-for-7 (.143) after two games, but has four walks and no strikeouts to lead to a .455 OBP.
  • Right fielder Carlos Concepcion also had a home run, going 1-for-4 with a walk. Like Rivas, the home run is his only hit, having gone 1-for-8 (.125) with a walk and a strikeout.
  • Left fielder Moises De La Rosa led the team in hits, going 4-for-6 with a double and a steal, his second already this season. The 18-year old is 7-for-10 (.700) after two games. He hit .265/.438/.408 in 19 games in 2022.
  • The start belonged to Jose Bello, who gave up three runs in 4.0 innings in his pro debut, on six hits, a walk, and a balk, while collecting five strikeouts.

DSL: DSL Arizona Black 8, DSL Giants Orange 6

DSL Giants Orange Notes:
  • DH Angel Guzman was 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, but was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the 7th inning for no obvious reason. The 17-year old is now 3-for-8 with the two doubles to start his season.
  • Second baseman Dario Reynoso went 2-for-5 with two double as well. After two games, Reynoso went 4-for-10 with two doubles and a triple to start his season, with no walks and three strikeouts.
  • First baseman Jhosward Camacho was 1-for-2 with a walk, and a double. The double was his first hit of the season, and he’s 1-for-5 with two walks to one strikeout.
  • Reliever Jorge Martinez made his first appearance, striking out two with no baserunners. It’s the 21-year old’s third season in the DSL, after he had a 3.42 ERA in 2022 in 12 games, all starts.

Hi friends,
Please, please, please - tell me where you are getting your maternity clothes from? This isn't my first pregnancy but my last was mostly through spring/summer so I got away with lots of wrap dresses and stretchy waisted shorts. I'm really lost with where to buy winter maternity clothing. I did an order from Ripe but the quality was terrible for the price (dresses were basically see through) so i returned it all and im back to square one.
So tell me: where have you got clothes you love? What are you wearing? I'm basically living in tights and oversized shirts and I don't think I'm looking my best 😂

2023.06.07 10:59 Timely_Huckleberry97 (Part 30 of a series) The Retail Punishment in Clovis

(Part 30 of a series) The Retail Punishment in Clovis
Part 29 covered a lot of ground. This installment picks up with a few new points.
Also, I will try and outline the trouble that Clovis officers could find themselves in; ‘Nightmare on Flatiron Parkway’ coming to theaters near you!
(A) Equity Committee in place, any objections?!
It is now well established that the Equity Committee is an essential party to these proceedings. Only the OEC is capable of representing equity interests which are demonstrably being opposed by both the debtors and creditors.
Since the OEC opposition, Clovis has made numerous concessions and modifications. This clearly shows the need for adversarial proceedings against the debtor which have yielded results.
(B) Negative Ruca sale price
The debtors have made a crippling mistake by allowing Rubraca to be sold for negative dollars! This is something they cannot recover from, and puts the specter of fraud over the entire BK filing. Since they claim to have closed the sale they no longer have an avenue of somehow ‘adjusting’ the sale to take it into a Positive Ruca sale price.
There is an interesting angle here that ESTABLISHES fraud. Let me explain how.
The key question is about the timing of the decision to include Ruca inventory as part of the sale.
  1. After the auction: In this case, the bidder had put in a bid with no intent of getting inventory for free. So the company should charge for inventory considering that creditors are waiting for recovery. The company did not do so. It, of its own accord, chose to GIVE AWAY inventory for free. No, you cannot do so, when there are classes awaiting recovery. CLEAR FRAUD.
  2. Before the auction: If the company was planning to include inventory of $100 mn in the sale, then there should have been a corresponding bid minimum. Since that was not done, we are in a laughable scenario that the company is holding out a hundred dollar bill and singing like a carnival barker ‘Sixty, sixty, do I hear a sixty five, seventy, sold for seventy’. Really?? CLEAR FRAUD.
Sorry Clovis, your fraud has unraveled, and company officers will be paying a penalty and some going to jail.
(C) ODAC debacle
FDA had clearly given Clovis two options, EITHER wait for OS data OR go in front of the ODAC. The OS data option was completely infeasible since data would take two years to mature and Clovis did not have that kind of financial runway. So really, ODAC was the ONLY option.
An ODAC presentation would have been something to look forward to considering the stellar PFS data. The whole reason that Athena results were delayed two times was because PFS was so strong it was preventing the requisite event related data. Considering that other front-line drugs were approved on the basis of PFS, it is a given that there would have been strong physician enthusiasm for Ruca.
In the above context, not going for ODAC is completely indefensible, and Pat and other officers can be NAILED on this point alone. Note that Gillian was one of the founders and she appears to have had a difference leading her to exit prior to BK. She needs to be deposed and held squarely responsible for this, unless she turns approver and throws Pat under the bus.
(D) Forensic analysis of expenses since Apr 2022
In my opinion the BK plan started getting crystalized after the fourth and final rejection of the share count increase proposal. Pat then had two goals: run down cash as much as feasible, and prevent regulatory successes that would value the assets higher.
First, we now know that Alix partners was engaged in the July timeframe to explore multiple options. How is it then that in September they entered a sourcing agreement with Isotopia? If cash conservation was the goal, how can one explain the money, time and effort spent on agreements like Isotopia? Was it that Novartis talks were in progress and Clovis was trying to preferentially spend money on FAP?
Second, why were strong headcount reductions not put in effect? This is such a simple and obvious measure to reduce the cash burn and I want to see the written documents where the cost benefit of this was explored and this option discarded. Instead, we had new requisitions being posted!
The interesting point is that Clovis is now publishing monthly results. We see that despite a headcount reduction of a fifth, revenue has not had a corresponding fall! This is the inelastic demand that I have previously written about. We now have DOCUMENTED PROOF that early headcount reductions would have prevented a spiral towards insolvency.
I believe that a forensic analysis of the accelerated spend since July, and comparing it to the prior quarter spending will yield interesting results!
(E) Excuse me, but your goose is cooked
The company officers need to realize that the game is up. They can flutter and flap all they want but their goose is cooked. The biggest mistake they made was to underestimate the equity opposition, and now they are in a predicament that they cannot extricate themselves from. I have a poor opinion of the lack of strategic vision of the debtors counsel, what was that name again, Twinkly, Far, and Galloping?!
Pat thought of us as sheep, that he would come to us saying ‘Your money is all mine’! Well, that’s when we sheep turn feral, grow fangs, and get in the mood to leave bite marks that are life altering!
I had previously written that four company officers deserve punishment, but now have changed my view to ALL officers. Why should board members get a pass, being responsible for oversight? We need to go after the whole bunch, with the possible exception of one or two approvers who are willing to sing like a canary.
(F) Equity is in a position of strength
We shareholders need to understand that our motivations are above board and can be presented in court. The entities opposing us are stronger than us but they have a corrupt agenda that they cannot state publicly on the record.
Can company officers admit in court that their hatred for retail investors made them act opposite to their fiduciary duties? No they cannot.
Can BP like AstraZeneca or Pfizer dare to stand up in court and state they wanted to neuter the competition in the PARP space? No they cannot, because the DOJ antitrust division is listening and they will be dragged over the coals.
Can the creditors open up that they actually have large short positions so their actual interest is share cancellation more than the full recovery that they claim to want? No they cannot.
These parties entered into this corrupt undertaking thinking that will pull levers behind the scenes and get away with the heist of the century. Well, sunlight is the best disinfectant. Now that the SEC and DOJ are fully involved, these behind the scene players will see the writing on the wall and gently melt into the hedges. The only party that will be left to take the full heat of our rage are the Clovis officers.
Considering the widespread fraud by Clovis officers, it is the Official Equity Committee that will be in the driver's seat going forward with the parallel and supporting effort from the DOJ and SEC. The OEC needs to closely guard the whistleblowers until the right opportunity. I’m looking forward to the DOJ Antitrust division becoming a party to the proceedings. We cannot have Biden’s moonshot cancer initiative on one hand, and on the other, a key oncology asset that promises to displace the SOC for Prostate (a cancer known for poor prognosis) to be rendered impotent (pun intended) in the hands of an insignificant overseas company.
(G) Two options for Clovis officers
Clovis officers need to realize that they cannot avoid the consequences of entering into bankruptcy fraud and the intent to eliminate equity. There is no getting around it. They need to figure out a way to minimize the punishment that is coming their way.
  1. Agree to a liquidation in Ch. 7
If Clovis requests the judge to turn it into a Ch. 7, and let the full company be put up for sale under court supervision, they may still be avoid the worst. There is a pent up investor anger that needs to be satisfied. If investors get a healthy share price, say $12, it would immediately reduce the severity of the remaining punishment. Heck, if the share price is good enough, they may even get the third party release that they so desperately want.
In this case, there is no financial impact to the officers. All that they are doing is allowing some BP to come in and give the proper valuation for the company assets.
  1. Dig in for a cage fight
If better sense does not prevail, the full investor anger will work its course out.
The first course of EC should be to prove BK fraud in front of Hon. Judge Stickles. Some people here automatically think the judge is on Clovis’ side. That may be incorrect. It is not lost on the judge that Equity Committee approvals are exceedingly rare. On top of that, the DOJ and SEC are fully engaged. Makes her wonder about the fire when there is so much smoke.
In the unlikely scenario that we do not prevail with fraud charges at this first level, there is the three member BAP bench to appeal to. The benefit of those proceedings will be that OEC will be represented from the get-go, and will be able to inform the bench about the seriousness of this case containing antitrust issues.
In parallel, a class-action can be started. There is a rich $50 mn. corpus that is available. I can imagine law firms falling over each other to get to a $20 mn payout to fully prosecute these crooks, including criminal charges. When there is a jury trial with everyday people like us who have lost our investments, that is when the full punishment will be given out.
If the fraud is proven within two years of the BK (more than enough time), the Ruca assets can also be clawed back and correctly sold in the market, making for even more recovery.
Make no mistake, if the company officers make it harder for us to corner them, our punishment will also be that much harder when we do corner them. By the time we are done with them, they will feel like a chew-toy in a cage of Rottweilers.
I’m hoping that better sense will prevail, and the company officers will ‘choose wisely’. But I have a feeling they won’t. Bring it!!

2023.06.07 10:56 Nervous_Proposal_574 Payment providers that don't retain transaction fees for refunds

I recently watched a video by Louis Rossman where he talked about payment providers that retain transaction fees when a customer requests a refund and because this transaction fee is a percentage it can cause real problems for small businesses who need to accept lots of returns/ refunds, eg clothes websites etc. In the video they mentioned that PayPal, Square and Stripe all do this.
My problem is that I have created a WooCommerce website for a customer and I want to recommend them a payment provider that won't make it hard for their business to offer returns. Please could you recommend a payment provider that doesn't retain the transaction fee, is reliable and integrates with WooCommerce ?

2023.06.07 10:55 ryuuknoel2 The changes for one shot are stupid

Before I start, I'm not a widow main or whatever, I'm support main and I've been playing since the OW1 beta. I really love the game, even with how it turned out in OW2. But for me, the changes to one shot are stupid.
Since OW1, we've playing against Widow and Hanzo. It is frutrated some times (espacially when you get HS with a random arrow), I can agree with that but not to that extended. Since OW 2 released as a free to play, it reaches more gamers and that's cool. But it feels like gamers now are so soft. I keep seeing people complaining about getting one shot. That's not a new feature in the game, it has always been there. This means you have to use you brain and play around it. Learn from your mistakes.
Guys, it's a freaking FPS game. Of course you need to have a sniper that can punish you for your bad positioning or if you just run in the open. Again, it's a FPS. If you don't want to get shot at, play Wow or LoL or something.
But recently, the soft gamers keep complaining about getting one shot and I don't know why but Blizzard keeps listening (the Roadhog nerf was ok but this is going too far). There's a lot to complain and a lot to fix, of course, but it's not because you cancel PVE and everyone is mad that you have to listen to everything the community is complaining. They will always complain anyway. This game and characters have an identity and the more the time pass, the more we're losing some.
The Widow and Hanzo nerfs are really bad. The strength of those hero is their range and with the nerfs they are losing their identity (tbh, 50 meters is terrible, you better play something else with that range).
Again, I'm not a DPS player at all but I'm getting frustrated to see my fav game getting butcher (with this nerf, why would you play Widow now?) because ppl are not using their brain and are getting soft.
Of course the changes are not live yet so we'll have to wait and see the results. But I'm very disappoint in this change. Not that I like getting OSed, but it forces me to think, to use my brain. I guess it's too much to ask nowdays.

TL;DR: The OS changes are bad for the heros and the game identity. Reminder that it's a FPS

2023.06.07 10:52 MaxTheMaestro Best AM4 motherboard?

I'm looking to upgrade my motherboard as the one I have currently is the most bare bones B450 you could find. I have a Ryzen 2600 and I'm planning on keeping it for around a year or so longer as it still works perfectly fine, but I would like to have a motherboard that can support a switched to Ryzen 3/5000. I am wondering which one would be most bang for my buck and would be cross-compatible, as I did some research but when it comes to compatibility I always see a lot of conflicting sources or for most motherboards there are issues when it comes to compatibility with newer gen motherboards

Andesite porphyry jar with wavy handles, Old Kingdom, 3rd Dynasty (ca. 2592-2544 BC)
This andesite porphyry jar with handles for suspension was found in a tomb that dates to the Old Kingdom (ca. 2686-2181 BC), it is an object handed down from generation to generation: the wavy handle is in fact a decorative motif typical of the Predynastic Period (ca. 4400-3100 BC).
Considering the technology available at the time of its creation, almost 5000 years ago, this object is a true masterpiece of art and technology. The working of stone vessels was perfected over the fourth millennium, and large numbers were produced in the Early Dynastic Period, following the unification of Egypt.
At this period there was a marked preference for mottled stones of the type seen here, somewhat in contrast to the Old Kingdom and later selection of stones with single fields of color with subtler veining.
To make this vase was used a rock, called black porphyry, composed of minerals of different sizes. This choice has made the process far from easy because these minerals respond differently to mechanical stresses, increasing the risk of breakage.

2023.06.07 10:47 abjectraincoat Nikon F4 stop down button squeal not working correctly. A fix?

Received an f4s in the post, stop down button makes a whine noise, feels gritty and doesn’t fully stop a lens. Was trying stop down metering on a pre AI lens.
Reading around I get the sense it’s a known fault point on the camera. Anyone have ideas or a fix?
Will this get worse and cause the aperture generally to not work as it should?

2023.06.07 10:40 Ok_Cream_7255 [discussion] Can we pretend part 1

So I had this idea some time ago about asking reddit to pose as if re:zero arc 5 just finished. The yesterday I though about it and considered expanding to all currently finished acrs of re:zero. Mainly because many of us weren't part if the fandom and internet wasn't what it is now.
So here's part one: Let's pretend in the comment section like "Arc 1: Chaotic first day" just finished
Let's also say that the Moon interlude is also released: so that we know that Subaru's alive.
