On Discord I think there's a bit of a mixed view - 40% increase since 2020/2021 releases (£474/6 first tranche), this is basically 'in line with market pricing'. I'm still a buyer, but its definitely a bit less compelling than normal.

2023.06.07 08:40 Scary_Forever_6448 Hundreds of White women gather at Colorado Capitol after plea from women of color to use their ‘privilege’ to demand action on gun violence

Hundreds of White women gather at Colorado Capitol after plea from women of color to use their ‘privilege’ to demand action on gun violence

Protesters stage a sit-in at the Capitol building in Denver.
Hundreds of White women gathered at the Colorado Capitol Monday morning, with more expected to show up throughout the day, to use their “privilege” in a silent sit-in to demand Gov. Jared Polis ban guns and create a gun buyback program.
The sit-in also comes amid a national debate over gun control and nearly two months after Polis signed into law four gun control bills, including one to expand the state’s red flag law.
Protesters gather in Denver to call for strict gun laws.
Here4TheKids, a movement created after a mass shooting in Nashville in March left six people dead, including three children, calls for primarily White women to peacefully sit-in until Polis, a Democrat, signs an executive order banning guns. It was founded by two women of color, Saira Rao, who is South Asian American, and Tina Strawn, who is Black. Both are mothers.
Strawn told CNN the movement calls for White women to be at the forefront of the sit-in because, “we know what happens when we show up with demands.”
“We know what happens when we show up in large numbers to fight for our rights. We’ve been doing it for generations. We’re always the ones whose bodies are in the most danger and at the most risk,” Strawn, an author and owner of the “Speaking of Racism” podcast said.
“So, it appealed to me very much that this was actually a time where we are asking Black folks and other marginalized and vulnerable communities to sit this one out and allow the White women and their privileged bodies, their privilege, and their power to show up. It’s time for them to show up,” Strawn added.
The movement has garnered support from the entertainment industry, including from White actresses Amy Schumer, Michaela Watkins and Lake Bell.
Watkins, who showed up at the Colorado Capitol early Monday morning and plans to stay until late in the evening, told CNN her initial response to the call to action for mainly White women to participate was, “What? Just White women? That sounds just exclusive,” but she understood what the founders meant.
“White women, statistically, have been the least likely to be arrested, assaulted by police officers and so we just said, ‘OK.’ If marginalized communities have been just traumatized over and over and over again I guess we just come together,” Watkins told CNN as cars drove by and honked in support of the protest. “We are the biggest voting block in this country. We do have power, we just forget that and we have been conditioned to forget that.”
She also said, “For me, it was very confronting, it was like, ‘I am an activist, but am I really willing to put myself on the line?’” when asked what was her response to other White women who feel uncomfortable with the movement.
“If someone says, ‘I don’t understand why I have to be there,’ they don’t have to be here. But if you feel you are over it, over this incredible horror that we are facing, literally every single day, then you should come here.”

‘This is apolitical, it affects everyone’

There have been at least 276 mass shootings in the US this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive, which defines a mass shooting as one in which at least four people are shot, excluding the shooter. Colorado has suffered several mass shootings since the deadly Columbine High School shooting in 1999, including a shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs in November.
In 2021, firearms accounted for nearly 19% of deaths for those aged 1-18, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Wonder database, and nearly 3,600 children died in gun-related incidents that year. The gun violence, particularly school shootings, has Wolf Terry, a volunteer with the movement who is also White, nervous for her five-year-old, who is autistic.
“If my child is even in a lockdown drill he will not be able to stomach it, to handle it, to participate in it without having a meltdown,” Terry, told CNN. “If there was an active shooter at his school he would be the first to be shot alongside his classmates because he would be loud and he’d be scared and he wouldn’t be able to control his response to the situation. And so every day, that’s what sticks with me … this is apolitical, it affects everyone.”
The executive order Here4TheKids has proposed for Polis to sign calls for the governor to “ban the use, loading, possession or carrying of all firearms in Colorado, including but not limited to firearms for personal protection, hunting, law enforcement or any otherwise lawful purpose” and create a statewide gun buyback program.
A spokesperson for Polis said the governor’s staff has met with the organizers of the group and “have expressed concerns that the requests being made are either unconstitutional or require legislative action.”
“The Governor takes the weighty responsibility of executive action and the trust Coloradans placed in him to govern responsibly seriously, and will not issue an unconstitutional order that will be struck down in court simply to make a public relations statement – he will continue to focus on real solutions to help make Colorado one of the ten safest states,” the spokesperson said in a statement to CNN. “These individuals’ calls to improve safety and prevent gun violence through their specific requests for an executive order banning all guns would simply be unconstitutional.”
Both Rao and Strawn said lawmakers have failed to curb gun violence and when asked if the new gun control laws in Colorado were a start, Rao said “no” because despite current state laws aimed to prevent them, gun deaths still persist.
“State legislation does not work. Why? Because guns can cross state lines, you can print guns on 3D printers,” Rao said. “State legislation is not working. It’s just not working, it doesn’t matter what it is.”

2023.06.07 08:08 pvtherman June 07, 2023, Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, MI, United States Tour Thread [Setlist, Media, Discussion]

And Paramore's tour rides into Detroit tonight, how are you doing Detroit? Doing well I hope. From what I've been reading off of Little Caesars Arena's webite, tickets should've already been picked up fans several months ago, followed by the general public. But hey, if you somehow haven't picked up one yet and still want to go, there seems to be some resales still available from the venue's website via ticketmaster (again, pricing might be higher than initial face-value). Anyways Detroit I hope you've cleared out your evening for tonight's gig, because I don't even know the line-up/queue-up time for tonight's gig from looking and reading at Little Caesars Arena's venue website and twitter. Perhaps they'll say it in the morning? In any case, I suggest coming to the venue a little early. I also have no idea if there are going to be early morning GA (General Admission wristbands) like at all the other previous stadium gigs so far. The venue's website is so fucking useless (no actual hate intended, I swear it's relevant, keep reading). But Detroit, I hope you're ready to welcome and rock out with Paramore, Bloc Party and Genesis Owusu tonight at the arena! Just plan ahead, in case anything comes up. Also something interesting to note for the Blocheads. Bloc Party actually pulled out Positive Tension for Indianapolis's gig a couple of nights ago. Positive Tension which surprisingly, they haven't touched since 2019 (the end of the Silent Alarm anniversary tour). Yes Bloc Party have only just played Positive Tension recently for this entire tour (2022-2023) at the request of Paramore's frontwoman Hayley Williams herself! That's just really cool of Hayley to convince Bloc to bring Positive Tension back onto the setlist, great choice! An original Silent Alarm single classic (you see what I did there? okay I'll go back in the corner with my jokes). So who knows what might happen on Bloc Party's setlist for tonight's gig? Again, thanks to Hayley for the PT request! Anyways Detroit, enjoy Paramore, Bloc Party and Genesis Owusu tonight, and if you're going out to the gig, tell us all about it below and see if you can grab a setlist on your way out!

  47. Here’s an IOG thread on the latest out of Atala Prism and Self-Sovereign Identity.
  48. Here’s an IOG article on Cardano native tokens.
  49. The difference in decentralization between Cardano and Bitcoin is still…laughable.
  50. Ledger is finally caving (a little) to the backlash. It’s reported that they will focus on open sourcing parts of their code and only release the “Recover” firmware after that open sourcing is finished.

2023.06.07 05:52 amstrumpet If r/nfl members ran their respective teams’ drafts and other roster decision-making, which team would have the best management?

Basically the title. If instead of owners/GMs/coaches making roster decisions and running the draft, the collective wisdom of each fandom’s nfl supporter base ran their team, which team would be best EDIT: least badly managed? In other words, which fan base on this sub would be most capable of least bad at running an NFL team collectively? My vote would probably be for a team that’s consistently bad and hasn’t had hope for a while, because they have no delusions. They wouldn’t kid themselves into “oh yeah Bateman, Proche, and Duvernay are all ready to pop off and carry this WR corps for the 2022 season,” they’d know their team is shit and do what it takes to make them better. It would probably lead to a lot more parity, honestly.

2023.06.07 04:58 sleepybullmoose Rearranging Ringer Mock Draft Lottery Picks (Player Comps and Projections)

Methodology: I looked at highlights of every player, glanced at their stats, and noted down the nba player of was reminded of the most when seeing them play.
Ringer Rankings
  1. Victor Wembayama
Worst Case: always injured, Best Case: 7ft 4 Tim Duncan (HOF)
Explanation: Victor has good defensive instincts and offensive skillset. Couple that with his tremendous size, and you get someone who could potentially become GOAT. Only barriers to HOF will be injury.
  1. Brandon Miller
Worst Case: Fringe starter, Best Case: Poor Man's Kevin Durant
Explanation: Great shooting stats in college. Bad defensive stats. Movement reminds me a lot of KD but with worse stats. A big forward with good spacing will at worst be a fringe starter in the NBA. Basically if Jabari Smith was bad at Defense but much better at scoring.
  1. Scoot Henderson
Worst Case: backup pg, Best Case: Westbrook with shot and higher IQ
Explanation: Very explosive, strong body, good handles and footwork. Bad shot, bad defense, and injuries will prevent him from reaching ceiling. Good athleticism and IQ should make him a career backup at worst.
  1. Cam Whitmore
Worst Case: Bust, Best Case: Charles Barkley
Explanation: Plays like a ball handling big man stuck in the body of a wing. Explosive leaper but lacks the effortless of Scoot and the Thompsons. Shooting is supposedly iffy, Barkley-esque in his movements. If his offense does not work out he will struggle to stay in the league given his lackluster defense.
  1. Jarace Walker
Worst Case: Role Player, Best Case: Draymond Green/PJ Tucker
Explanation: Big body but plays under the rim indicating lack of explosiveness. Bad shooting stats. Good feet, will be a defensive specialist. Could stay in the league as situational defense only player. Needs to improve offense if they wish to stay on court. Similar game to Draymond minus the playmaking. DPOY potential if he can find ways to stay on the court.
  1. Amen Thompson
Worst Case: Bust, Best Case: Skinny Zion
Explanation: Very interesting player due to OTE. Amazing athlete, glides effortlessly across the court. I see him more as an undersized point forward than a wing or guard. Body control at rim and explosion is like Zion. Good playmaking but see him more as a secondary facilitator than a primary. If the outside shot never comes through he will have to become a DPOY level player otherwise he will become a bust.
  1. Taylor Hendricks
Worst Case: Role player, Best Case: Better Jonathan Isaac
Explanation: Good shooting stats, good length, and good defensive instincts. Bad ball handling forces him to play the big man role. DPOY potential.
  1. Ausar Thompson
Worst Case: Bust, Best Case: Better Jaylen Brown
Explanation: Better shot than his brother. Less of a guard game. Plays more like a wing. Reminds me of a young Jaylen Brown but more athletic. Shot is still worrisome but supposedly less than Amen's.
  1. Anthony Black
Worst Case: Fringe starter, Best Case: Jason Kidd
Explanation: Surprisingly athletic despite complaints. I see him as a mix between Lonzo and Lamelo. Not the defender that Lonzo is and not the scoreball handler that Lamelo is but somewhere in between. If someone told me that Black was the true third Ball brother (not LiAngelo) I wouldn't really question it. Good size. If he can play defense and he can space, I at worst, see him as a fringe starter.
  1. Cason Wallace
Worst Case: Role player, Best Case: Mini Jimmy Butler
Explanation: Funny enough he has the same wingspan as Jimmy Butler. Cason isn't the most explosive PG but he knows how to make good use of his length a little bit like Jalen Williams. Good defense, scoring potential, and the Kentucky guard stereotype could end up with a solid backup at minimum.
  1. Gradey Dick
Worst Case: Role player, Best Case: Reggie Miller
Explanation: Good body control at rim. Good shooting stats. Looks like he has some ball handling game. Not sure about defense but he at least looks like he will have a solid Nba career at minimum. Plays like a taller player. Given the right opportunity, I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being one of the best players in this draft.
  1. Derek Lively
Worst Case: Bust, Best Case: Mitchell Robinson
Explanation: Plays a lot like Mitch in his college games. Horrible shooting stats. Defense only bigs aren't as valuable in the league anymore. Could very easily bust out of the league if he gets injured early.
  1. Jalen Hood-Schifino
Worst Case: Role Player, Best Case: Less Athletic Dame with worse shooting
Explanation: Decent athleticism. Good size. Looks like he has potential of driving and finishing, being a secondary playmaker. I see his best case as being a borderline all star.
  1. Keyonte George
Worst Case: Role player, Best Case: Deangelo Russel with better shooting worse playmaking
Explanation: Has that sluggish nonathletic feel to his game. Similar size to Dlo. His shooting form looks better but his stats are worse.
My Ranking:
My ranking of the prospects based on floor
  1. Victor (AllNBA1st/AllDef1st/DPOY)
  2. Scoot (AllNBA1st)
  3. Miller (AllNBA2nd)
  4. Anthony Black (All StaAllDef)
  5. Cason Wallace (All StaAllDef)
  6. Dick (All Star)
  7. Taylor Hendricks (DPOY/AllDef)
  8. Jarace Walker (DPOY/AllDef)
  9. Cam
  10. JHS
  11. Keyonte
  12. Ausar
  13. Amen
  14. Lively
Ranking of prospects based on ceiling
  1. Victor (MVP/HOF)
  2. Amen (MVP/HOF)
  3. Scoot (MVP/HOF)
  4. Cam Whitmore (HOF)
  5. Anthony Black (HOF)
  6. Ausar (HOF)
  7. Miller (HOF)
  8. Dick (AllNBA)
  9. Cason (AllNBA)
  10. Taylor Hendricks (AllNBA)
  11. Jarace (AllNBA)
  12. JHS (AllNBA)
  13. Keyonte (AllStar)
  14. Lively (AllStar)
Admittedly, the floor and ceiling rankings are way too generous and there are probably going to be players drafted after the lottery who will end up better than the ones in the lottery. I would probably drop some of the recruits here out of the lottery.

2023.06.07 04:45 alwayssprecise I’m glad Erik Spoelstra doesn’t have the Coach of the Year award

I saw a tweet earlier that Kendrick Perkins said "It's disturbing that Erik Spoelstra has never won a Coach of the Year". To which I am glad he never won it. We all know Erik Spoelstra is an All-Time great coach more than deserving of one. But let’s look at the resume real quick
2× NBA champion (2012, 2013) 2× NBA All-Star Game head coach (2013, 2022) NBCA Co-Coach of the Year (2017) Top 15 Coaches in NBA History As assistant coach: NBA champion (2006)
With a good resume, you'd think he would have won the award at least once, right? Nope not at all. Spo became head coach in the 2008–2009 NBA season. Since then, here is a list of the year's award winners.
Year Coach Team
2023 Mike Brown Kings
2022 Monty Williams Suns
2021 Tom Thibodeau Knicks
2020 Nick Nurse Raptors
2019 Mike Budenholzee Bucks
2018 Dwane Casey Raptors
2017 Mike D'Antoni Rockets
2016 Steve Kerr Warriors
2015 Mike Budenholzer Hawks
2014 Gregg Popovich Spurs
2013 George Karl Nuggets
2012 Gregg Popovich Spurs
2011 Tom Thibodeau Bulls
2010 Scott Brooks Thunder
2009 Mike Brown Cavs
Since 2009, 11 coaches have been let go, while Mike Brown, George Karl, Dwane Casey and now Monty are the four coaches in the last 15 years to be fired shortly after winning the award. The front office and media are often too quick to blame the coach when it's not their fault when the roster is down. Now imagine if Spo was fired from 2015-2019 because the Miami Heat weren't a championship team? That would be stupid.
Even as far as back in 2013 an article perfectly quoted Spoelstra saying “Spoelstra has a keen understanding of the award, which comes with dubious distinctions and doesn't guarantee a championship or job security.”
Spo is top 5 All-Time Playoffs won as Head Coach with a Playoff win percentage of .602. Doesn’t need an award to show how great he is. He already is a champion

Williams’ intermittent career spanned 13 years and 3 teams from 1999-2011.
Quote is from a 2022 Interview on Trey Wingo’s Half Forgotten History Podcast

SF/IDP Salary Cap League - Push all in, or be patient one more year?
I have plenty of salary cap cash in hand, and 4 1sts, 2 2nds, 3 3rds, and 3 4ths over the next two years - do I push all in and trade away those draft picks for aging stars or continue the process one more year?
Team has finished 1st, 6th, 3rd last 3 years.

2023.06.06 23:27 riversrunningdeep What are your Rated R / TV-MA media recs? Here are mine!

My Bachelor’s is in Film Studies, so this is my thing! I’d love to read all of your recommendations! I’m still catching up on my Rated R media.
My Film Recs:
Side Note/Soap Box: I believe that watching realistic and accurate Rated-R war films is not immoral or "sinful" in any way (which I love to tell TBM's, because they immediately clutch their pearls). In fact, I would even go as far as to argue that war films that sugarcoat the violence and horror of war do a disservice to those who fought and lost their lives in those conflicts. A PG-13 historical war movie with battle scenes? Not realistic. By sugarcoating violence, especially when it comes to genocides and war, we're basically downplaying how serious those events were, and honestly, I think that's kind of sketchy from an ethical standpoint. I managed to convince a TBM friend of mine through this argument to join me in watching "Schindler's List." Before we watched it, she said, "Why not? I've already read like 40 World War II historical fiction novels." I consider that a win.
Another Soap Box: This film is a big deal because, in film theory classes, we discussed the accuracy of media portrayals of different characters and backgrounds versus the creators' identities. Does German filmmakers’ portrayal of Germans in World War I make the story more authentic than if American filmmakers made the same film? My vote is yes. However, you don’t necessarily want to make this argument into an extreme absolute of black and white, or else you can go to extremes and say, “Only LGBTQ+ filmmakers can create stories about LGBTQ+ characters and plotlines,” or “Only white actresses can portray a mermaid, because the fairytale is Danish,” (side-eyeing majorly on that one). Then that pigeonholes filmmakers/creatives into boxes and genres, and we can miss out on some fantastic stories that otherwise wouldn’t be told.
My TV recs:
If you lasted this long on my ramblings, thank you! I had so much fun writing this. I’d love it if you took the time to share your favorite Rated R / TV-MA movies and TV shows here with your fellow exmo’s! I’m hoping to watch more comedies myself!

2023.06.06 23:09 I-DEVASTATOR Dynasty Football League has 3 Orphans Teams

Our 21-year old league needs a manager to fill the spot vacated by a longtime member.
We play in a dynasty league where we keep 22 players each year. Our roster is NFL-legitimate, utilizing every position except for offensive linemen.
QB – WR – WR – RB – RB – TE – FLEX – K – LB – LB – LB – DE – DT – DT – DE – S – S – CB – CB
This league has existed since 2003 and has grown in roster size with Yahoo’s additional features. Very likely moving to Sleeper in 2024.
Our primary rules are that everyone shows up for the draft (live online) and that you must field a complete team each week. Every position, despite bye weeks and injury, MUST be filled each week.
Trading is not only encouraged but very necessary over time to keep your team competitive. The entire offseason is open for trading. Every player on your roster is available for trading. Keepers are not locked down until two weeks before the draft.
Our roster size and defensive line-ups prove to be a challenge for most newcomers; even scares some veteran guys off. There is no buy-in fee.

2023.06.06 22:58 Dink_n_Flicka9 If Wolves want Scoot... Charlotte seems to be a likelier trade partner than Portland

TLDR: KAT and Dame's supermax contracts and KAT's less-than-ideal fit make a KAT-to-PDX trade very unlikely. Charlotte is better than last year's record showed, and could see KAT as the piece to make them a legit playoff team, while also capable of offering Scoot, a talented young Center in Wiiliams, cap flexibility, and future picks in return. Also won't be competing w/Charlotte for playoff-positioning in the West, unlike Portland. Every hypothetical trade is unlikely at this point, but just feel a Charlotte trade makes way more sense, even if they're not openly shopping their pick.

2023.06.06 22:46 cutememe I made a list of the key points from The Debrief article for the TLDR folks

  1. David Grusch, a former intelligence strategist, investigated UAPs and helped draft the language on UAP for the FY2023 National Defense Authorization Act, which allowed any person with relevant UAP information to inform Congress without retaliation, irrespective of previous non-disclosure agreements.
  2. Grusch claims that UAP-related activities have been concealed within multiple agencies without appropriate reporting to oversight authorities. He presented to Congress about a supposed decades-long competition to recover and exploit UAP crash landings for defense advantages.
  3. He carried out extensive interviews with high-level intelligence officials, some of whom are directly involved in the UAP-related program. Grusch has accused the operation of being illegally shielded from Congressional oversight, and he alleges to have faced harassment due to his investigation.
  4. Some people associated with UAP programs disclosed concerns to Grusch about illegal contracting, criminal activity, and suppression of information. These allegations suggest a high level of secrecy and misconduct surrounding UAP programs.
  5. Grusch has provided detailed and sensitive information indicating that materials from non-human origins are in the possession of covert programs. Specific details about these programs remain classified, but Grusch provided the information to the Inspector General and intelligence committee staff.
  6. Grusch left government service in April 2023 to further government accountability through public awareness. He continues to receive support within intelligence circles, and multiple sources have vouched for his credibility.
  7. In May 2022, Charles McCullough III, a senior partner of the Compass Rose Legal Group, filed a Disclosure of Urgent Concern(s); Complaint of Reprisal on behalf of Grusch with the ICIG.
  8. A whistleblower reprisal investigation was launched in response to Grusch's complaint. Grusch testified that UAP-related classified information has been withheld from Congress by elements within the intelligence community to thwart legitimate oversight.
  9. Grusch faced retaliation after providing classified information to the Department of Defense Inspector General concerning the withholding of UAP-related information from Congress.
  10. The Intelligence Community Inspector General found Grusch's complaint credible and urgent in July 2022.
  11. The National Defense Authorization Act for FY2023 established a mechanism for authorized reporting of sensitive information to defense channels and requested reporting on material retrieval, analysis, reverse engineering, research, and development involving UAP.
  12. Jonathan Grey, an intelligence officer specializing in UAP analysis at the National Air and Space Intelligence Center, spoke publicly for the first time, adding weight to the existence of programs investigating UAP.
