2023.06.03 22:58 Imaginary_Staff_3484 Snippets from the First Monthly Statement of Milbank LLP for compensation for services rendered
If you have some time, suggest you review the minutes of meetings held between Milbank and other professionals on the Unsecured Creditors Committee (UCC). It is an interesting read on the back and forth to get to Sorrento’s asset evaluation and sale. A lot of meetings and discussions of Sorrento’s pipeline and assets sale of IP, products and candidates. A company called BRG is one the consultants helping with the process. I looked up BRG, correct me if I am wrong but looks like they are Berkeley Research Group ( a global consulting firm). They are rated by Forbes as one of America’s best management consulting firm. Healthcare is among their area of expertise.
Looks like there was a meeting on 3/9/23 to evaluate an unsolicited offer to purchaseIP/ product assets. Curious to know who that investment banker is.
There is also discussion of an informational meeting with Piper Sandler, Milbank and BRG.
I wonder if they are the investment banker referred to
Discussion also on the analysis of Sofusa patent portfolio and regulatory activities in connection with purchase offer and valuation. BRG is shown heavily involved in discussions with a potential investment banker on the sale of IP/product assets.
This is just a tiny flavor of things going on in the background on the UCC side of the coin. If interested you can read also the Monthly Statement from LW. There is a lot you can learn about coordination behind the scenes. You will begin to appreciate and understand the work that is going on behind the scenes and why LW along with all the professionals that are representing Sorrento are as successful as they are in JJ’s court. If you get a chance to look up the monthly statements from the UCC and LW, your take would be appreciate.

2023.06.03 22:57 sflandsurveyor Moonlighting as a CA Government Surveyor?
Hello guys, I am potentially looking to break into working for the government as a land surveyor and wanted to inquire on what you all think of moonlighting? I have talked to a few guys at CALTRANS who do moonlight and they say its mostly in their free time.
My idea is to do the following: contract out drafting to an old colleague, work on Fri-Sun in the field maybe once or twice a month as time permits, then resolve boundaries Mon-Thurs at night. The job would likely be Mon-Thur 6:30AM-5PM. I do not see any conflict of interest, as it would be for a public agency who does not review submittals of record maps, it would be likely a utility. I would use my own time and equipment, and do not believe they outlaw moonlighting.
They pay for public agencies in the bay far surpasses private, when you consider working conditions. To me, this sounds like a very profitable setup. Do any of you working for the public also do similar? Any problems or issues you have encountered?

2023.06.03 22:55 AristocraticBard The lady In the woods (Updated)
In the early morning
While the sun is rising
A fair lady was wandering
In the woods and forest
On the Earl’s estate
Then she saw his servant
Then at once he did state
You now must depart
Because my lord has his right!
And now leave from my sight
When she was leaving
In indignation walking
She saw a knightly sir
“What brings you to this huff”
“Oh, the Lord sends his servants
And has not the heart to bring himself”
Then let us battle and confront
They rode for 4 hours to somerset
The white steed never tired
When the day was hottest
They arrived at his manor
The good kinight called out,
Lord Buckingham, I have rode
Though land and sea, to order
Your apologies to my lady,
“Good knight you have no authority
If you wish to battle, I shall need only go easy
If you're so inclined, let us battle on this field,
With bushes and trees
But you must disperse all your servants
As the Lord schemed
He ordered all to leave bar one
“Faithful serf, when the battle is peaked
You must emerge form bush armed
And slay the Lowly knave
And all his riches you may have”
As both men met to shake hand
And stepped back to draw sword
The knight strikes first, but alas
His was a near miss
As this continued
And sweat, toil and arms
Started to slow and miss
With armour and power
Both parties at parity
Then the signal went out
The serf sprang,
From deceitful hiding
And plunged a dagger
Into his back, in murder
His heart did turn blue
In cold murder
The lady, shocked
Did ride away ne’er to return
And fiery heartly emotions did burn
For vengeance and destruction
But the light was smashed
The good knight was perished
After an hour of riding
She stopped to gather breath
And In deep thought,
The torment of death
Did approach and give her the sword
It only take one swing to see the knight
Only one swing!
In sadness and desperation
She cried, O God forgive me!
O wicked Lord die in anguish
For I shall be reunited
In life or death
It doesn’t not care me
Now, I take my body
And soul to heaven… https://www.reddit.com/OCPoetry/comments/13yuh2h/o_ubereats/jmpgeli/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3 https://www.reddit.com/OCPoetry/comments/13x2vj6/the_icelandic_beauty/jmf652n/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3

2023.06.03 22:54 JoshAsdvgi The Legend of Poïa

The Legend of Poïa
One summer morning a beautiful girl called Feather-woman, who had been sleeping outside her lodge among the long prairie grass, awoke just as the Morning Star was rising above the horizon.
She gazed intently at it, and so beautiful did it seem that she fell deeply in love with it.
She awakened her sister, who was lying beside her, and declared to her that she would marry nobody but the Morning Star.
The people of her tribe ridiculed her because of what they considered her absurd preference; so she avoided them as much as possible, and wandered alone, eating her heart out in secret for love of the Morning Star, who seemed to her unapproachable.
One day she went alone to the river for water, and as she returned she beheld a young man standing before her.
At first she took him for one of the young men of the tribe, and would have avoided him, but he said: "I am the Morning Star.
I beheld you gazing upward at me, and knew that you loved me.
I returned your love, and have descended to ask you to go with me to my dwelling in the sky."
Feather-woman trembled violently, for she knew that he who spoke to her was a god, and replied hesitatingly that she must bid farewell to her father and mother.
But this Morning Star would not permit.
He took a rich yellow plume from his hair and directed her to hold this in one hand, while she held a juniper branch in the other.
Then he commanded her to close her eyes, and when she opened them again she was in the Sky-country, standing before a great and shining lodge.
Morning Star told her that this was the home of his parents, the Sun and Moon, and requested her to enter.
It was daytime, so that the Sun was away on his diurnal round, but the Moon was at home.
She welcomed Feather-woman as the wife of her son, as did the Sun himself when he returned.
The Moon clothed her in a soft robe of buckskin, trimmed with elks' teeth.
Feather-woman was very happy, and dwelt contentedly in the lodge or Morning Star.
They had a little son, whom they called Star-boy.
The Moon gave Feather-woman a root-digger, and told her that she could dig up all kinds of roots, but warned her on no account to dig up the large turnip which grew near the home of the Spider Man, telling her that it would bring unhappiness to all of them if she did so.
Feather-woman often saw the large turnip, but always avoided touching it.
One day, however, her curiosity got the better of her, and she was tempted to see what might be underneath it.
She laid her little son on the ground and dug until her root-digger stuck fast.
Two large cranes came flying overhead.
She begged these to help her.
They did so, and sang a magic song which enabled them to uproot the turnip.
Now, although she was unaware of it, this very turnip filled up the hole through which Morning Star had brought her into the Sky-country.
Gazing downward, she saw the camp of the Blackfeet where she had lived.
The smoke was ascending from the lodges, she could hear the song of the women as they went about their work.
The sight made her homesick and lonely, and as she went back to her lodge she cried softly to herself.
When she arrived Morning Star gazed earnestly at her, and said with a sorrowful expression of countenance: "You have dug up the sacred turnip."
The Moon and Sun were also troubled, and asked her the meaning of her sadness, and when she had told them they said that as she had disobeyed their injunction she must return to earth.
Morning Star took her to the Spider Man, who let her down to earth by a web, and the people beheld her coming to earth like a falling star.
She was welcomed by her parents, and returned with her child, whom she had brought with her from the Sky-country, to the home of her youth.
But happiness never came back to her.
She mourned ceaselessly for her husband, and one morning, climbing to the summit of a high mound, she watched the beautiful Morning Star rise above the horizon, just as on the day when she had first loved him.
Stretching out her arms to the eastern sky, she besought him passionately to take her back.
At length he spoke to her.
"It is because of your own sin," he said, "that you are for ever shut out from the Sky-country.
Your disobedience has brought sorrow upon yourself and upon all your people."
Her pleadings were in vain, and in despair she returned to her lodge, where her unhappy life soon came to a close.
Her little son, Star-boy, was now an orphan, and the death of his grandparents deprived him of all his earthly kindred.
He was a shy, retiring, timid boy, living in the deepest poverty, notwithstanding his exalted station as grandchild of the Sun.
But the most noticeable thing about him was a scar which disfigured his face, because of which he was given the name of Poïa (Scar-face) by the wits of the tribe.
As he grew older the scar became more pronounced, and ridicule and abuse were heaped upon him.
When he became a man he fell in love with a maiden of surpassing beauty, the daughter of a great chief of his tribe.
She, however, laughed him to scorn, and told him that she would marry him when he removed the scar from his face.
Poïa, greatly saddened by her unkindness, consulted an old medicine-woman, to see whether the scar might not be removed.
She could only tell him that the mark had been placed on his face by the Sun, and that the Sun alone could remove it.
This was melancholy news for Poïa.
How could he reach the abode of the Sun? Nevertheless, encouraged by the old woman, he resolved to make the attempt.
Gratefully accepting her parting gift of pemmican and moccasins, he set off on a journey that was to last for many days.
After climbing mountains and traversing forests and wandering over trackless prairies he arrived at the Big Water (that is to say, the Pacific Ocean), on the shores of which he sat down, praying and fasting for three days.
On the third day, when the Sun was sinking behind the rim of the ocean, he saw a bright pathway leading straight to the abode of the Sun.
He resolved to follow the shining trail, though he knew not what might lie before him in the great Sky-country.
He arrived quite safely, however, at the wonderful lodge of the Sun.
All night he hid himself outside the lodge, and in the morning the Sun, who was about to begin his daily journey, saw a ragged wayfarer lying by his door.
He did not know that the intruder was his grandson, but, seeing that he had come from the Earth-country, he determined to kill him, and said so to his wife, the Moon.
But she begged that the stranger's life should be spared, and Morning Star, who at that moment issued from the lodge, also gave Poïa his protection.
Poïa lived very happily in the lodge of the Sun, and having on one occasion killed seven birds who were about to destroy Morning Star, he earned the gratitude of his grandparents.
At the request of Morning Star the Sun removed the scar on Poïa's face, and bade him return with a message to the Blackfeet.
If they would honour him once a year in a Sun Dance he would consent to heal their sick.
The secrets of the Sun Dance were taught to Poïa, two raven's feathers were placed in his hair, and he was given a robe of elk-skin.
The latter, he was told, must only be worn by a virtuous woman, who should then dance the Sun Dance, so that the sick might be restored to health.
From his father Poïa received an enchanted flute and a magic song, which would win the heart of the maid he loved.
Poïa came to earth by the Milky Way, or, as the Indians call it, the Wolf-trail, and communicated to the Blackfeet all that he had learned in the Sky-country.
When they were thoroughly conversant with the Sun Dance he returned to the Sky-country, the home of his father, accompanied by his beautiful bride.
Here they dwelt together happily, and Pola and the Morning Star travelled together through the sky.
2023.06.03 22:54 cevans31 I’ve been diagnosed for PTSD due to assault and battery of 2 promoters and a bouncer
13 years ago I was assaulted and battered at a nightclub in Florida. We were on vacation and my brother sold tickets for an event at the club which he should not have done he sold like $2,000.00 worth of tickets. But the money was not sent to him immediately he had to wait a few days for it to be available. The promoter found out about it and used a girl to lure us to the club. The promoter’s words to us was “I’m going to fck you up!!” I was telling the promoter that I had nothing to do with taking your money. He then says “I don’t care I’m going fck both you up and strip you naked if I don’t get the money back. We go inside the club into the office and my brother is finding ways to give back the money. The promoter and the bouncers start to get angry and frustrated and bring us to a dark alley right outside the club and they preceded to beat us from 12:45 am to about 5:00 am, the sun was out when they finished.
The bouncer beat us the most. My brothers cheek was swollen and I lost a tooth. They punched us in the face, The bouncer slapped us multiple times. He he had on cycling gloves by the way. They threaten to put us in a van and drop us off in a ditch. The bouncer took out a knife and threatened to cut our testicles off.
We eventually found a way to give them the money. 13 years later I went to a therapist because I was experiencing symptoms of ptsd for about a month and a half. My therapist diagnosed me and need advise on what to do as a far as suing the club.
I read where I can apply the discovery rule. Since the club is a public entity the statue of limitations limits my discovery period to six months.
Any advice would be appreciated.

2023.06.03 22:54 crimson_ragdoll Lightening black hair
I have black hair which has red undertones in the sun, this is from dying it with black and dark blue box dye for over a year. I was thinking of dying the underside of my hair either dark blue or dark purple. I know I would most likely need bleach. Would this be achievable, or should I go for red instead? Should I try a colour remover first or straight to bleach? What vol? Should I use a toner afterwards? Does the dye have to be semipermanent?

2023.06.03 22:53 JoshAsdvgi THE LEGEND OF MANITOUS SPRINGS
| || | submitted by JoshAsdvgi to Native_Stories [link] [comments]
THE LEGEND OF MANITOUS SPRINGS
A Comanche Legend
The Snakes, in common with all Indians, possess hereditary legends to account for all natural phenomena, or any extraordinary occurrences which are beyond their comprehension.
Of course, they have their legendary version of the causes which created in the midst of their hunting grounds these two springs of sweet and bitter water; which are also intimately connected with the cause of separation between the tribes of "Comanche" and the "Snake."
Thus runs the legend:
Many hundreds of winters ago, when the cottonwoods on the Big River were no higher than an arrow, and the red men, who hunted the buffalo on the plains all spoke the same language, and the pipe of peace breathed its social cloud of Kinnik-Kinnick whenever two parties of hunters met on the boundless plains--where, with hunting grounds and game of every kind in the greatest abundance, no nation dug up the hatchet with another because one of its hunters followed the game into their bounds, but, on the contrary, loaded for him his back with choice and fattest meat, and ever proffered the soothing pipe before the stranger, with well filled belly, left the village.
It happened that two hunters of different nations met one day on a small rivulet where both had repaired to quench their thirst.
A little stream of water, rising from a spring on a rock within a few feet of the bank, trickled over it, and fell splashing into the river.
To this the hunters repaired; and while one sought the spring itself, where the water, cold and clear, reflected on its surface the image of the surrounding scenery, the other, tired by his exertions in the chase, threw himself at once to the ground, and plunged his face into the running stream.
The latter had been unsuccessful in the chase, and perhaps his bad fortune and the sight of the fat deer which the other hunter threw from his back before he drank at the crystal spring, caused a feeling of jealousy and ill humor to take possession of his mind.
The other on the contrary, before he satisfied his thirst, raised in the hollow of his hand a portion of the water, and lifting it toward the sun, reversed his hand and allowed it to fall upon the ground--a libation to the Great Spirit Manitou who had vouchsafed him a successful hunt and the blessing of the refreshing water with which he was about to quench his thirst.
Seeing this, and being reminded that he had neglected the usual offering, only increased the feeling of envy and annoyance which the unsuccessful hunter permitted to get the mastery of his heart; and the Evil Spirit at that moment entering his body, his temper fairly flew away and he sought some pretense by which to provoke a quarrel with the stranger Indian at the spring.
"Why does a stranger, " he asked, rising from the stream at the same time, "drink at the spring head, when one to whom the fountain belongs contents himself with the water that runs from it?"
"The Great Spirit Manitou places the cool water at the spring," answered the other hunter, "that his children may drink it pure and undefiled.
The running water is for the beasts which scour the plains.
Au-sa-qua is a chief of the Shoshone; he drinks at the headwater."
"The Shoshone is but a tribe of the Comanche," returned the other:
"Waco- mish leads the grand nation.
Why does a Shoshone dare to drink above him?"
"He has said it.
The Shoshone drinks at the spring-head; other nations of the stream which runs into the fields.
Au-sa-qua is the chief of his nation.
The Comanches are brothers.
Let them both drink of the same water."
"The Shoshone pays tribute to the Comanche.
Waco-mish leads that nation to war.
Waco-mish is chief of the Shoshone as he is of his own people."
Waco-mish lies; his tongue is forked like the rattlesnake's; his heart is black as the Misho-tunga (bad spirit).
When the Manitou made his children, whether Shoshone or Comanche, Arapahoe, Shian or Paine, he gave them buffalo to eat and the pure water of the fountain to quench their thirst. He said not to one, drink here, and to another drink there; but gave the crystal spring to all that all might drink."
"Waco-mish almost burst with rage as the other spoke; but his coward heart alone prevented him from provoking an encounter with the calm Shoshone.
He made thirsty by the words he had spoken,--for the red man is ever sparing of his tongue,--again stooped down to the spring to quench his thirst, when the subtle warrior of the Comanche suddenly threw himself upon the kneeling hunter and, forcing his head into the bubbling water, held him down with all his strength until his victim no longer struggled, his stiffened limbs relaxed, and he fell forward over the spring, drowned and dead.
Over the body stood the murderer, and no sooner was the deed of blood consummated than bitter remorse took possession of his mind where before had reigned the fiercest passion and vindictive hate.
With hands clasped to his forehead he stood transfixed with horror, intently gazing on his victim whose head still remained immersed in the fountain.
Mechanically he dragged the body a few paces from the water, which, as soon as the head of the dead Indian was withdrawn, the Comanche saw suddenly and strangely disturbed.
Bubbles sprang up from the bottom, and rising to the surface escaped in hissing gas.
A thin vaporish cloud arose and gradually dissolving, displayed to the eyes of the trembling murderer the figure of an aged Indian whose long, snowy hair and venerable beard, blown aside by a gentle air from his breast, discovered the well-known totem of the great Wau-kau-aga, the father of the Comanche and Shoshone nation whom the tradition of the tribe, handed down by skilful hieroglyphics, almost deified for the good actions and deeds of bravery this famous warrior had performed when on Earth.
Stretching out a war club toward the murderer, the figure thus addressed him:
"Accursed of my tribe ! this day thou has severed the link between the mightiest nations of the world, while the blood of the brave Shoshone cries to the Manitou for vengeance.
May the water of thy tribe be rank and bitter in their throats."
Thus saying, and swinging his ponderous war club (made from the elk's horn) round his head, he dashed out the brains of the Comanche, who fell headlong into the spring, which from that day to the present moment remains rank and nauseous, so that not even when half dead with thirst, can one drink of the foul water of that spring.
The good Wau-kau-aga, however, to perpetuate the memory of the Shoshone warrior, who was renowned in his tribe for valor and nobleness of heart, struck with the same avenging club a hard, flat rock which overhung the rivulet, just out of sight of this scene of blood; and forthwith, the rock opened into a round, clear basin which instantly filled with bubbling, sparkling water, than which no thirsty hunter ever drank a sweeter or a cooler draught.
Thus the two springs remain, an everlasting memento of the foul murder of the brave Shoshone and the stern justice of the good Wau-kau-aga; and from that day two mighty tribes of the Shoshone and Comanche have remained severed and apart; although a long and bloody war followed the treacherous murder of the Shoshone chief, and many a scalp torn from the head of the Comanche paid the penalty of his death.
The American and Canadian trappers assert that the numerous springs which, under the head of beer, soda, steamboat, springs, etc., abound in the Rocky Mountains, are the spots where his Satanic majesty comes up from his kitchen to breathe the sweet, fresh air, which must doubtless be refreshing to his worship after a few hours spent in superintending the culinary process going on below.
2023.06.03 22:53 colit-astra A few OOTDs + shopping + self-observations - suspected L/D logic
| || | submitted by colit-astra to RitaFourEssenceSystem [link] [comments]
Hey all! I decided to break out style content into a new account before I got in too deep with my old one. I'm back with the rest of this week's OOTDs and I think in the future I'll do a week at a time.
My goal this week has been to simply observe what logic I currently seem to be using, and I think I'll do that for another week or two before trying out specific archetype logics. I've read most of Rita's written posts by now but have only begun to dip into the videos. So far I'm pretty confident in my Left-ness. I think I am a bit Up within the Down quadrant, and so far the Wildflower seems most similar to my existing process. People seem to either really dig my style or find it just a little too weird, I often get the comment that "oh I could never wear that (color, print, big jewelry)" in a way that sometimes feels backhanded, and I definitely don't dress in a trendy manner. I do want to interest people with my clothes but I do not necessarily want or intend to please people with them. I do have a strong curiosity about how others perceive me, but I don't think I have a good ability to pick up on the impression I'm making, or not making.
I am definitely drawing primarily from within, and although I often start with one item that I want to experiment with or a visual curiosity about how two garments might harmonize together, I find it difficult to go with an outfit I've planned ahead without huge tweaks after I get it on my body and figure out how I physically and mentally feel in it. Although I do want to make an impression, and convey certain qualities about myself within a situation (almost always work), I think it is more important to me whether I personally feel that I am embodying my vision.
I have come to understand this week that an outfit can simultaneously feel too blah and too fussy. I crave a lot of visual interest, and I also want to achieve a greater sense of ease than I currently have. I need an outfit to appeal to as many of my senses as possible - visual, physical/touch, scent (fragrance is a huge part of the effect for me) and even sound, for example I love a heel that clicks when I walk or a skirt that rustles luxuriously.
As I've reflected on what I think is missing
in my style right now, ease is definitely a big one which is a Down word, but most of what I desire and don't fully know how to express is definitely Up-ness. I tentatively think that the Enigma best represents the direction I'd like to push myself in. I want to create more magnetism, perhaps a sense of surprise, and an inner power that I often struggle to connect to. I think "Ease" to me is actually connected to power, more like a self assurance, a comfort with oneself expressed in physical unencumbrance.
For the week ahead, the keyword I want to keep most in mind is "Elemental," as this is an, um, element that I feel is missing and would help my outfits be more Me. I thought it was cool that u/bel-corvo
brought up the astrological concept of the stellium recently. I just write like 10 paragraphs about how this resonates with me - I have my sun and 3 planets in Virgo as well as 3 in the eighth house - but that may need to be a separate post. Basically I have a lot of earth and fire in my chart that I do think expresses my essence, as well as some edge or darkness that is present in me but not well expressed in my current wardrobe. I think "Elemental" energy will help me start to create more satisfying style with a little more depth and power.
I have been trying not to shop recently, but yesterday I needed a pick me up so I went to a local vintage shop. I kept "ease" and "elemental" in mind and wound up purchasing a dress that makes me feel like a million bucks, plus a couple of tops that sparked joy. I think it was a pretty successful attempt to use my intuition and logic together to make purchasing decisions.

2023.06.03 22:52 summertimeandthe So under the recent Supreme Court ruling, do workers still have the right to strike without their union being sued, or does any strike constitute financial damage to the company and can lead to a lawsuit against the union? I have not seen this clarified very well in any article.
Perhaps the limits of the ruling remain to be tested. Is it just damage to property by strikers that can lead to a successful lawsuit, or work stoppage itself?

2023.06.03 22:50 MooingTarget A glaring problem
So I've had my 23 Niro EV Wind for a little over a week now. Enjoying it. But the is one huge glaring issue. Literally. The center console where the shifter is constantly reflects the sun into my eyes on the commute home. What was Kia thinking by putting a black mirror on the center console? Right now, I've been throwing an old shirt on the console, but is there a better solution? I'm tempted to try putting a laptop skin on it, but it is a lease and they might not like that.

2023.06.03 22:49 nobuhle122 20F looking for a regular penpal
I am looking for a long term penpal, I hope it will be anonoymous and we can talk to each other about everything under the sun, I am not looking for anything sexual and I am looking for someone of a similar age. Gender and ethnicity isn’t an issue. We can move to mail if we get along well with time.
I love the outdoors, love to travel, and trying new foods and learning about new cultures.
I love watching videos on tiny houses and also just tiny living in general fascinates me.
I’m currently interested in plants and just growing vegetables too so I’m hoping to start planting once I move out in a few months.

2023.06.03 22:49 zenloich LR4 - Curtain Sensor affected by Sunlight
Hello all, I'm one week into owning my LR4 and I love it so far except for one issue: the robot is in my bathroom under a skylight and around noon every day, the sunlight falls so that a sliver of light is inside the globe and this seems to confuse the cat sensor curtain - it thinks a cat is inside. The LR4 will remain frozen in its current state for about an hour until the sun moves far enough for the issue to go away. Has anyone else experienced this issue and come up with a solution? Moving the robot isn't an option as this is the only location in our house where it can live. Right now, my current approach is to try and set a sleep timer from 11:30am - 1:30pm, but the problem is that the LR4 app frustratingly won't let you set a sleep timer starting in the AM on weekends ("Sleep time for weekends must start in the PM" - WHY?).

2023.06.03 22:48 HomelessDopeFiend do whatever you need to do to get yourself a solar panel. trust me.
I live in a decent little camp with a good friend and his girlfriend, and to be honest it's not the most convenient location. it's about a 18-22 minute bike ride (and I ride a nice road bike) from the main road and then a 5-8 minute ride off the bike trail into the bush. So it can become a real pain in the dick to go and charge my phone or whatever.. my friend and his girl also ride ebikes so they constantly need charged. well we decided enough is enough, and we went out and acquired ourselves a solar panel. but this isn't no harbor freight $20 solar panel. we have a 280 watt panel that's about the same size of a 75" TV. a bad ass Ryobi inverter and a deep cell marine battery.
you know living in south Florida is fucking brutal, especially when you live outside. the sun just drains you, physically, mentally, emotionally, and just obliterates any bit of motivation you have left in you. why not take back whatever we can from it...

2023.06.03 22:48 PostReplyKarmaRepeat Defending the Draft: Detroit Lions
HOW WE GOT HERE:
Brad Holmes is a wizard. What he has done as the Detroit GM in just 3 years has been a playoff push away from being quite remarkable, especially considering the context of succeeding prior general manager Bob Quinn which ended in typical Lions losing fashion. Brad Holmes would immediately come out swinging and first transaction as general manager was trading longtime franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for two first round picks, a third round pick, and quarterback Jared Goff. At the time, it was bittersweet for fans, as Stafford was the practically the lone bright spot in the last decade (outside of Megatron), but the haul they got in return was at least something. Stafford was injured and already likely leaving to chase a Super Bowl and Detroit was going into full rebuild mode so Detroit fans were just happy with what they could get. Brad ended up hiring a one time Head Coach, Dan Campbell. A pick made purely on the potential he would be able to change the culture with his grind it out, Football attitude Campbell was known for. All in all, it was business as usual for Detroit as they begin yet another rebuild....
Oh parity in sports.... You never cease to amaze us....
Somehow and someway, In Holmes' first draft, Penei Sewell falls to Detroit at #7 and the Lions draft room goes bananas on camera! At the time we did not know it, but Detroit just landed their future Pro Bowl leader in the trenches. In round 4, the Lions scoop a literal Sun God in Amon-Ra St. Brown. Little did we all know the impact both of these players would have today. Both players are arguably top 10 in their position.
Fast forward to 2022 and the Lions are coming off one of the most promising 3-13-1 seasons that you could ever ask for. The team and coaches have bought in to Dan Campbell's grind it out style of Football. The culture seemed to finally be changing and it felt like Jared Goff turning into a solid Stafford replacement, despite being considered a throw on by most in the Stafford trade.
The 2022 draft Brad Holmes' statement to the NFL. It does not matter where you take guys. If you know how to evaluate talent, you go for YOUR guys and you can be successful. Holmes was able to draft Aiden Aiden Hutchinson at #2 (some say he should have been #1), Jameson Williams (best receiver in the draft at 12 via trade), Kerby Joseph (who picked off Aaron Rodgers THREE TIMES IN ONE GAME!), and drafted James Houston and Malcolm Rodriguez in the 6th round. Both players are looking like future defensive stars. Dare I say the best 6th round success since the Pats drafted TB12? Don't @ me lol
The Lions followed up the draft with a MUCH improved 2022, landing a 9-8 winning record and going 8-2 in their final 10 games. Jared Goff is looking like the guy who took the Rams to the Superbowl, every position has young talent and this upcoming 2023 draft is looking like it could seriously push the Lions into serious playoff contention if the cards are played correctly.
Key Offseason Additions:
CB Cameron Sutton -- Signed to three-year, $33 million contract
CB Emmanuel Moseley -- Signed to one-year, $6 million contract.
RB David Montgomery -- Signed to three-year, $18 million contract
OL Graham Glasgow -- Signed one-year, $4.5 million contract
S Chauncey Gardner-Johnson -- Signed to one-year, $8.5 million contract
WR Marvin Jones -- Signed to one-year, $3 million contract
Key Offseason Losses:

Running back Jamaal Williams -- Signed to three-year, $12 million contract with Saints.
WR DJ Chark -- Signed to one-year, $5 million deal with Panthers.
Round 1: No. 12 (from CLE through HOU and ARI) – Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama
Flashback! Remember that Stafford trade where they got got the Rams draft pick? You know that pick that was supposed to be in the upper 20s because LA is so good and are coming off winning a Super Bowl? Yea, well they sucked.... Somehow they sucked so bad that that pick turned into the number 6th overall pick.
Odds makers had the Lions grabbing Devon Witherspoon as their secondary was a big need. However when Seattle took him at 5, who knew what would follow? Well, the last thing fans expected.... The Lions ended up passing on Tyree Wilson, Jalen Carter, AND Bijan Robinson by trading down to 12 to take Alabama running back, Jahmyr Gibbs. Hindsight is 2020, but reports now show the Lions wanted Jahmyr over Bijan, which means Holmes and co. got THEIR guy.
Immediately fans realized the inevitable. Fan favorite and oft injured running back, DeAndre Swift, was going to be cut or traded. Almost immediately they traded D'Andre Swift and a 7th round pick for the Saints' 2025 fourth-round pick and a 2023 7th round pick.
This pick is exactly why you and I are sitting on the couch and Brad Holmes gets paid the big bucks. "HoW cAn YoU dRaFt a RuNnInG BaCk ThAt hIgH". Well, the dude is a straight up baller. If I asked you who led Alabama in receiving last year you would probably say some 5 star Wide Receiver. It was Gibbs. Gibbs is being compared Alvin Kamara in the way he can run and catch. He was listed as running a 4.36 at the combine. Gibbs transferred to Alabama last season after spending the first two seasons of his career at Georgia Tech. He carried the ball 151 times for the Crimson Tide in 2022, averaging 6.1 yards per carry and scoring seven touchdowns. He also caught 44 passes for 444 yards and three catching scores. With the departure of Swift and the newly acquired bowling ball back in Montgomery, Gibbs is going to be an immediate impact as a "weapon" and less of a conventional running back. The thunder and lightning combo the Lions will have will be fun to watch behind their top 5 O Line.
Round 1: No. 18 – Jack Campbell, LB, Iowa
"HoW cAn YoU dRaFt a RuNnInG BaCk ThAt hIgH" made sense with the Gibbs pick, but drafting a Linebacker at 18 with other glaring needs like lineman and secondary left Lions fans a bit puzzled by this pick. It hurt a little less when you remember this was their 2nd pick in the first round. Also, many people had Jack Campbell on their board for later in the draft so in terms of liking a guy for who they are, very few people are against this pick. But like I said before, Brad Holmes and Dan Campbell go after guys they have faith in. Until they screw up, fans cant complain too much!
But who is this guy and what makes him so good? Well if you care about RAS or "Relative Athletic Score" Jack is outstanding. He scored a 9.98 RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 6 out of 2600 LB from 1987 to 2023. He possesses rare athleticism for being 6-5 and that allows him to be exceptional in coverage. PFF rated him as the highest coverage grade since 2018 Devin White at LSU. He also has great leadership skills as he was Iowa's team captain and won Big10 Defensive Player of the year.
Jack Campbell is going to join a much improving linebacking core that is led by team captain Alex Anzalone and 2nd year stars Malcolm Rodriguez and James Houston. The Lions will likely play him on the outside because off his athleticism but I am certain he will be moved all around the field.
Round 2: No. 34 (from ARI) – Sam LaPorta, TE, Iowa
This is getting a bit out of hand for the Lions fans that appreciate positional value when you draft. Clearly Holmes has totally thrown conventional wisdom out of the window. However, tight end IS a need. Of all of the positional units Tight End is probably the weakest. In 2022 the Lions trotted Brock Wright, James Mitchell, and Shane Zylstra....WHOOOO?!?! Exactly...they needed help. Outside of when they took him, most pundits are pretty happy about this pick. Not only did the Lions get their second Iowa captain, but Sam might have landed the best tight end in the entire class.
With LaPorta, the Lions get a player that can do a variety of things. He can play in the slot, in-line or even out wide. This is EXTRA important when you remember that Jameson Williams is suspended for 6 games due to gambling. During his career at Iowa, he had 513 snaps in-line and 304 snaps out of the slot (per PFF). It really wouldn’t be surprising if LaPorta walks into Detroit and earns the starting tight end spot. He has the talent to do it and by being the 34th overall pick, there is going to be some high expectations for him.
Round 2: No. 45 (from DET) – Brian Branch, S, Alabama
For the first time all draft it felt like a player fell to Detroit and they werent reaching for their guy (for better or worse). At 45, the Lions were already drafting their 4th player and wasnt even the end of the 2nd round. Scouts said that Branch was one of the safest picks in the draft due to his lack of a jarring weakness. Branch is siad to have extremely high football IQ which led him to play all around the defense for the Crimson Tide. Branch has primarily handled nickel coverage, but has the range and instincts for single-high or split safety looks. He’s quick, fast and strong with the ability to match up with shifty slots, bigger possession receivers and pass-catching tight ends. Branch is also tough and gritty which makes himu a perfec fit for this Lions team. He has a nose for the ball and is capable of making game-changing plays. He had two interceptions and two forced fumbles during his freshman season at Bama.
Branch made headlines on draft day to be the only guy to stay into day 2 in the greenroom as he was projected to go in the first round. I think that shows how much he cares about this opportunity and has his heart in it.
Also, Branch as a great opportunity to learn from newly acquired Safety, Chauncy Gardner-Johnson who is one of the best young safeties in the league.
Round 3: No. 68 (from DEN) – Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee
You ever feeling a little uncomfortable and then you let out a massive fart and all of your uneasiness washes away? Yea, well thats the feeling Lions fans got when they landed Hendon Hooker with the 68th pick. QB wasnt a terrible need, but once we got him, a sense of relief was felt across the fanbase. When the Lions ended up getting Goff in the Stafford trade, it was sort of unsaid that Goff was just the bridge before they draft a QB of the future. However Goff has played way better than expectations and less and less fans are calling for a replacment. So, instead of using one of their first round picks on a QB, they waited and got a guy with first round updside! Now, they are in a much more confortable position at QB with a very solid back up.
The Lions used the 68th pick in order to take the former Tennessee quarterback. The pick came just before the Rams and Raiders were scheduled to pick and been teams have been seen as possible landing spots for a quarterback in this year’s draft. Hooker is recovering from a torn ACL, but his doctor recently informed teams that he is expected to be ready to go by the first week of the regular season. With Jared Goff in place as the starter in Detroit, there won’t be any need for Hooker to rush back for what will likely be a redshirt season if all goes according to plan in Detroit.
This pick was safe, exciting, and sets the Lions up with a solid back up QB. The first time that they can say that since they had Shaun Hill.
Round 3: No. 96 (from ARI) – Brodric Martin, DT, Western Kentucky
Before the draft, a need that was discussed as a hole in the Lions defense was interior line. They got their big boy in the middle with nose tackle, Brodric Martin. After starting his career at North Alabama, Martin transferred to Western Kentucky to play his final two seasons at the FBS level. Since 2021, Martin has played in 26 total games, and has managed to contribute 62 total tackles to the Western Kentucky cause. He’s piled up six tackles for-loss as well as four sacks, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble. This move with help the Lions run defense that ranked 4th to last in the NFL last year.
It is no surprise that winning is won in the trenches. The Lions have done a great job of drafting players to build out this line with the likes of Alim McNeill, Isaiah Buggs, and John Cominsky, but with big interior guys like Martin, they usually operate best in a rotation. This move should be huge in terms of depth and opening up even more opportunities for Aiden Hutchison to get to the QB.
This move didn't feel flashy, but it felt needed.
Round 5: No. 152 – Colby Sorsdal, OL, William & Mary
The Lions had to finally wait a bit before this pick due to moving around in the draft and trading away their pick round 4. They elected to add depth to their O-Line by taking Colby Sorsdal out of William and Mary. Sometimes its fun being the big fish in the small pond. Sorsdal started in all 46 games he appeared in during his five-year stint at William & Mary. He spent the duration of his college career at Right Tackle. Sorsdal is the first Tribe player to be drafted since 2016, when the Chicago Bears selected safety DeAndre Houston-Carson in the sixth round.
Serving as an offensive co-captain and starting all 13 games at Right Tackle, Sorsdal anchored an offensive line that helped the Tribe rank third in total rushing offense and fourth in fewest sacks allowed. Behind one of the best offensive line units in the country, the Tribe accumulated an 11-2 record and won the CAA Conference Championship for the first time since 2015.
He will be joining a elite O-line led by Penei Sewell, Frank Ragnow and Taylor Decker. Colby wont start, but he will add in needed depth for a team that's success will only goes as far as their line will take them.
Round 7: No. 219 (from HOU through MIN via PHI) – Antoine Green, WR, North Carolina
With the Lions last pick in a very intense draft, they selected Wide Receiver, Antoine Green out of UNC. Most projected Antoine to be signed to a team after the draft so it is a but of a peculiar pick. In the late 7th round, you are just hoping to take a flier on a guy and hoping they pan out.
The 6-foot-3, 199-pound receiver impressed Detroit's coaching staff at the East-West Shrine Bowl, and has the opportunity to compete for playing time his rookie season. According to NFL Draft Bible, Green is a "technically sound, fluid athlete that can give you a little bit of everything as a wide receiver. Green runs routes, it is as if he is attacking his defender rather than going about his route without considering what the defense is doing. Green has a good release off the line of scrimmage and does not get held up too much when facing press coverage. He uses his hands well to reduce contact against the press and accelerate off the line. He analyzes coverages well and makes quick decisions on how to break down his defender throughout his route. He can read zone defenses and has a knack for finding spaces to make himself an easier target."
With Jameson Williams missing 6 games to start the year, there is an opportunity for Green to poach snaps away from anyone not named Amon-Ra or Marvin Jones. There is also a chance he doesn't make it out of camp. Unlikely, but we will see.
The 2023 NFL draft for the Detroit Lions was a resounding success. They were able to draft 6 times....BEFORE THE FOURTH ROUND!! The extra picks allowed Detroit to really control the draft and move around in a way to get the guys they wanted. They did not care about who they got and when. They just simply got the guys they wanted. After reflecting on its entirety, they landed a lot of great talent. They were able to add a player at every single positional unit and several will end up starting and making an immediate impact.
Look, the Lions are going to Lions so hold your breath a little longer, however Brad Holmes and Jack Campbell have really turned this franchise around and are making them a legit playoff contender. Right now the Lions are favored to win the NFC North for the first time since god knows when. I am projecting a record of 12 and 5 and a NFL North Division Win.
GO LIONS!!!! (FTP)

2023.06.03 22:46 deaguard New to landscaping, tree questions.
So I’m currently working on the front yard of our house and I’ve been trying to figure out a good way to block the sun coming in through the living room window. Between the heat it brings in as well as the unpleasant glare we fight with on the tv through most of the day I was thinking some form of tree. From what I’ve read trees are typically a no no when it comes to close proximity to a house, my intent is to put it directly adjacent to the house in an area that the walkway sections off. The area is about 3-4 feet wide so the tree would be planted about 2-3 feet from the house. Are there any good small and narrow trees that you all believe would help with this? The window faces east and gets direct sunlight through the entire day so even thick curtain only help so much. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated!
