2023.04.01 23:08 operapeach Just started and thinking of quitting
Hi everyone! I got hired on as an MSC a week ago, I’ve worked my first full week and I’m already thinking about bailing.
The GM started late last year and since then, the majority of the employees (around 80%, with more talking about quitting) have quit.
She is incredibly abrasive and difficult to work with. My very first truck shift was Thursday and it was a disaster. Besides me and the ROM, there were only 3 associates scheduled. One was brand new and another one was really unhelpful, very slow process time—they were also not open to any constructive feedback we’d give them.
The next day, the GM was very upset with me because truck wasn’t “100% done” along with a laundry list of other items that had been given to us to complete (conveniently on her day off). It was my third day, I’m still orienting myself and figuring out where everything is… when I explained this, and said the other staff are new too, she said “it’s not that hard to put things away, and the fact is no one cares. I’m not sure why you thought I wouldn’t be upset.”
Multiple other members of the management team have cried over the last few days, once even in front of me. The district manager loves this GM, so I don’t know what kind of person she is either…
I’m a very hard worker and very competent and teachable, but I’ve cried every day for the last three days. My feet are throbbing and I’m limping from massive blisters.
This manager changes the schedule mid-week without telling anyone, doesn’t take breaks (and pressures other people to do this—managers aren’t even allowed to take our allotted 15s and I’ve worked 9+ hour shifts with nothing but a 30min break), uses gratis as loyalty/credit card incentives and not for training, makes us sign off on trainings we didn’t actually complete to “save time,” etc.
Thoughts? Is this normal? Should I jump ship now?

English teacher: 10/10. She helped me live and get through the hellhole that was high school. Spent more than half my time in 12th grade in her office.
Econ teacher: 10/10. She's like a second mum to me in school. Helped me with the research project and saw me get through a great deal of adversity in school.
Math teacher: 6/10. I was his worst student but he was still nice to me sometimes.
Counsellor: 8.5/10. She saw me do a lot of things around school and get treated pretty badly.
Rice: 4/10. Had the interview in the middle of a party. Will not elaborate.
Georgetown: 6/10. She rescheduled 5 times and read off of a list of questions.
Dartmouth: 10/10. Went on for almost two hours. Still in touch with the dude.
Yale: 20/10. Was literally a phone call but went on for like three hours. Dude said it was it longest interview ever. No script, just random ass stuff about my family, my grandfather, my experience with dance, my sexuality, etc. We discussed a bunch of books as well. Also got technical for econ.
Imperial College London: 7/10. Very technical.
Ashoka University: 6/10. Bleh. The guy was super hostile and simply tried to argue with me over geopolitics.
Wrote most of them last-minute because of IB deadlines and mocks and everything sort of clashing together in one big mush. Personal statement was maybe a 9/10. Wrote about my school blazer, an old handkerchief, and shiny silver Jordans.
: Certified bruh moment. Rejections:
- Dartmouth ED
- UC Hicago EA (Deferred to RD -- Rejected)
- NYU ED2

- I'm 5'4. Hence the petite in the title.
- (For legal reasons, this and the entire rest of the post is a joke) My time in school gave me pretty lasting trauma. I did the best I possibly could and still never got recognised, never got to address an audience formally. Organised everything. Literally half the things that happened on the student side were my brainchildren. I came up with so much of it and got literally no credit. They would always find someone else. Someone more likeable. I had the worst self esteem of my life in school. Also faced an absolute truckload of bullying due to my eye condition (amblyopia) at this school in 3rd grade because I would have to wear eye patches. Got physically bullied into depression in 6th grade because I was labelled gay. I'm so glad I'm leaving this place. The funniest part is I'm the only kid to ever get into an ivy from my school and certainly the only ever to have a full ride to the US, and yet the head boy still says the school "won't touch you [me] with a ten foot pole". It still makes me cry because I poured my heart and soul into this place, I did literally everything I could for their silly events and initiatives. Man. It just hurts. It's come to the point where this year my juniors would come to me for help with pretty much everything but request me not to tell anyone they asked for help because it would "ruin" their reputation with the administration. I love and know this place like nobody else, and it doesn't love me back.
- I love Cornell. Committing to Dyson AEM. GO BEARSSSSSSSSS

2023.04.01 23:05 anmeyrino I can’t decide
Hi, English is not my first Language btw :)
I 18F am currently living with my mother (38). She used to physically abuse me from the age of 9-15, but it stopped when I turned 16. There was and still is some mental abuse, but regardless we have developed quite a good relationship. I have come to terms with the fact that she may be mentally scared due to moving to another city at the age of 18 and experiencing bad situations, while raising me (she got me when she was 20) and my brothers (14M and 10M) on her own.
She is the strongest woman I know and I love her a lot, but the mental abuse makes it really hard for me to want to keep living with her.
Due to that I have to decide between my mental health and my educational career.
And the reason why is that I planned on starting my IBDP in august and major in CS after.
But that will not be possible if I choose my mental health, since I will have to switch to something called „Ausbildung“ which is what I would call paid Vocational Training. It will be in the banking field, a field that I‘m not really fond of (But it doesn’t matter right now).
If I do that, I will have the money to move out (I’m aware moving out will definitely not be easy).
Btw, I have high functioning depression which makes living with my mother harder, but wouldn‘t hinder me if I lived alone.
I really don’t know what to do.

2023.04.01 23:04 nivener Mi Band 7 - is it a good choice?
Gooood evening ladies and gentlemen. I'll try to keep my post as short as possible.
Few years ago I used Mi Band 4. I liked it, it was my first band, it was enough for my limited physical activities - occasional running and walking.
Then I went on to Amazfit Verge that I have been using for over a year now and for how cheap it was I am quite satisfied, but I am getting more active, I stopped going on a runs and I actually started going swimming few times a week and bought a bicycle which I use about 8 times a month. I also use an elliptical. It's time to leave Verge.
I need something that can track my swimming, elliptical and bicycle trainings. I immediately thought about going back to Mi Band since I know it's waterproof and can track swimming activities and has overall around 100 possible activities. I think elliptical and cycling is also available, although I am mainly using Strava and my smartphone for tracking cycling, so I just need the Mi Band 7 to sync with Strava.
How reliable is Mi Band 7? I am not some professional athlete, I just want to have my activities tracked reliably, mainly swimming and elliptical. I also liked using sleep tracking feature in Mi Band 4 although I don't know how reliable it was. I should also mention that I don't have budget for anything more expensive like FitBit or any Galaxy bands, that's why I am leaning towards Mi Band 7, although if it's not worth the money I will just wait and get money for something more expensive. I looked over this subreddit and I see that Mi Band 7 PRO is a pile of stinking hot shit so I know to not bother with it. I am just a casual user.
Any opinions from people using the band for any of the mentioned activities would be appreciated, also any opinions in general.

2023.04.01 23:02 jimmy-12345 Compartment syndrome
Despite experiencing persistent pain in my shins while running for more than 5 minutes, I have continued to push through and achieve a 25-minute 5K. However, I am aware that this pain may hinder my performance and potentially lead to injury during my desired recruit training for the Royal Marines, which is why I am determined to address the issue before my start date in September 2026.
To ensure I am in optimal physical condition for the rigorous training, I am considering seeking medical advice from my NHS doctor, although I am hesitant due to concerns about the impact it may have on my record. Regardless, I am committed to doing whatever it takes to address this issue, including undergoing surgery if necessary.
If it turns out to be compartment syndrome, I am eager to learn if this would prevent me from joining the Royal Marines, or if there may be a waiting period before I am eligible to apply. While I hope the pain is just from sore shins and that I am not simply being a "wimp," I am determined to uncover the root of the issue and take the necessary steps to address it.

2023.04.01 23:01 Edward_Stivenson Tips on How to Write Informative Essay
| || | submitted by Edward_Stivenson to students_essay_help [link] [comments]
In today's world of information overload, it's challenging to find sources that give information that is well-written, engaging, and trustworthy. That's why creating an informative essay is a skill that will serve you well not just in school but in many work environments, as well as when you establish your online presence. In this article, you will learn what an informative essay is, about the informative essay format, get an informative essay outline, step-by-step directions for every paragraph, a list of topics for informative essays, and other tips to make your process easier. The goal of this article is to prepare you to write your own informative essay and to be able to pick out dissertation writing services
if you need to. What Is An Informative Essay?
An informative essay is a piece of writing with the goal of giving the reader information about a subject, event, experience, company, thing, or concept. An informative essay relies on facts and is backed up by reliable sources. It does not use subjective opinion or personal anecdotes to present a viewpoint or persuade the reader. Informative essays educate a reader about the important facts of a topic, often diving deep into the subject and presenting interesting relationships and information. Informative essays are somewhat unique because amongst the four main types of essays, narrative, descriptive, expository, and persuasive, informative essays can be any of the first three. Variations of an Informative Essay
Since the goal of an informative essay is just to present information to the audience, many types of essays can be considered informative essays. Expository essays are the most similar to informative essays because the goal of both of them is to provide information to the reader. The main difference is that in an expository essay you usually include a thesis statement that has the goal of explaining something, not just giving information. Narrative and descriptive essays can be informative essays as long as they only present information rather than try to persuade the reader about something. Here are some common variations of informative essays.
A cause and effect essay analyzes the relationship between two things by determining how something happened or the effect it had. Cause and effect essays can be argumentative if you are trying to establish cause or effect, or they can be informative if you are purely giving information about the connection between two things. For example, “Why should the government ban the usage of single-use plastic to protect the environment” is an argumentative cause and effect essay, whereas “An analysis of the connection between plastic and long-term pollution” is an informative essay.
A descriptive essay describes a person, thing, event, or situation with the goal of making it as real as possible in the reader's imagination. It uses evocative imagery and appeals to the five senses to relate experiential information. A descriptive essay can be written with an eventual purpose, or it can be written just to provide information. For example, “ Why beach vacations are the best” is not an informative writing but “An incredible afternoon at the beach” can be one.
A process essay is almost always an informational essay. It explains how to do something or explain how something was created. Step-by-step guides and how-to tutorials are great examples of process essays.
A compare and contrast essay analyzes the similarities or differences between two related things. They can be either argumentative or informative based on the purpose of the essay. For example “Why Xbox is better than PlayStation” is an argumentative compare and contrast essay, whereas “The differences and similarities between Xbox and PlayStation” is an informative compare and contrast essay.
A problem-solution essay analyzes a problem and offers various solutions to it. These types of essays can be persuasive if one solution is considered better than the rest or informative if it is just presenting various possible solutions. For example, “The best way of fixing chronic unemployment” is a persuasive problem solution essay, whereas “Different methods to alleviate unemployment” is an informative problem solution essay. Informative Essay Outline
Creating an outline is a step that many students skip, but an outline is one of the most useful ways of focusing your research and planning the overall structure and flow of your essay. Spend a little extra time on your outline and you can save a lot of time when actually writing. An informative essay outline is similar to the general 5 paragraph structure of essays but with a few important differences. Let's take a look at one from our nursing essay writer
A thesis statement or a sentence explaining the main purpose of the essay
- Introduction paragraph
- Background information
A topic sentence about the first main idea or fact being presented
- Transition sentence
- Body paragraph 1
A topic sentence about the second main idea or fact being presented
- Supporting evidence and facts
- Transition to the second paragraph
- Body paragraph 2
A topic sentence about the third main idea or fact being presented
- Supporting evidence and facts
- Transition to the third paragraph
- Body paragraph 3

- Supporting evidence and facts
- Transition to the conclusion
- Summary of the main ideas
- Restate the thesis statement or main purpose
- Final thoughts
- Informative essays benefit from an outline because it helps structure the essay. As you conduct research, think about the three main ideas you want to present and note down interesting facts you find in the appropriate place in the outline along with its sources. You should understand the outline and think about it even when considering topics for your essay. If all of this seems like a lot to handle already and you're thinking 'I would rather have someone help me with physics' or 'i need help from a professional essay editor', then this is a great time to reach out for some additional help.
Just like any other essay, the informative essay introductory paragraph has the goal of giving the reader a little bit of information about what the essay will be about. Starting with a hook to grab the reader's attention is always a good idea, followed by some background information about the topic and finally, the thesis statement. Informative Essay Body
The body of an informative essay typically consists of 3 paragraphs that contain the information you want to share with the reader. Each main paragraph should talk about one main interesting fact about the topic so that the essay is clear and easy to understand. Even though the goal of an informative essay is to provide information, only include the most important and relevant facts. Make sure that every piece of information you include is cited and comes from a reliable source. https://preview.redd.it/r8ow63bkbbra1.png?width=1600&format=png&auto=webp&s=c7ed4ea6897e2946b14d5e193f6178533cc1fef0 Informative Essay Thesis Statement
The thesis statement is the single most crucial sentence in the entire essay as it contains informative writing aims. A good thesis statement clearly states the purpose of the essay. You should come up with a thesis statement after picking a topic and doing some research. A good thesis statement will help guide your research so that you know exactly what you're looking for. It also helps structure the essay by clearly explaining to the reader what they can expect. A thesis statement for an informative essay does not make arguments or a persuasive claim, rather it clearly states what information will be conveyed. For example, a good informative essay thesis statement looks like “There are three main ways how the renaissance impacted modern western civilization”. Informative Essay Conclusion
Like most other essays, the conclusion of an informative essay summarizes the main pieces of information. Remind the reader about the purpose of the essay, explain why it is important, and leave them with a few questions to think about.
Always check the final draft for accurate information into the the main points, supporting ideas, and transition words. Informative Essay Topics
Choosing an informative essay topic is more difficult than it seems. Because the goal of an informative essay is to give information about a subject, almost anything can be an informative essay topic. Don't just start writing about the first topic that pops into your head, spend some time brainstorming several different topics and do a little bit of research about all of them. How do you narrow down a good topic?
- The topic should not be so broad that you cannot explain it
- The topic should not be so specific that there isn't a lot of information about it
- The topic should be interesting to the audience
- You should find the topic personally interesting so that you enjoy the research and writing process
- Your topic should explain something that is important
Make sure you spend enough time coming up with a good topic. If you find it difficult, go through some informative essay examples to understand what kind of information you will have to find, or go through this list of informative essay topics for inspiration! https://preview.redd.it/oo9si04wbbra1.png?width=1600&format=png&auto=webp&s=e738ff17ff2d0e1f78c4cb042d388d879965df7f 10 Education Topic Examples

Writing an informative essay can be a lot of fun if you know what you're doing. As long as you choose a good topic, understand the informative essay structure, and spend some time planning, it will be easy. Keep the following things in mind when writing your essay.
- Make sure you understand the specifics of the assignment
- Brainstorm several topic ideas
- Research several ideas before making a final choice
- Come up with a thesis statement
- Make an outline
- Write an engaging introduction paragraph with a clear thesis statement
- Write body paragraphs that present one idea backed by reliable sources
- Don't present new information in the conclusion paragraph, restate your main pieces of information and your thesis
Before you begin writing the paper, read the assignment carefully so that you know exactly what is expected. The word count, expected quality of sources, specific subjects to talk about, etc, will guide your choice of topic. It can be difficult to choose a topic, which is why you should brainstorm several ideas and research them to make sure there is enough interesting information to put into your essay. Once you have settled on a topic, conduct thorough research and put the information you find into the outline so that you get a feel for what the final essay will look like. Think about possible thesis statements while you are initially narrowing down your list of topics because this will help guide your in-depth research. While Writing
How to Write an Informative Essay
- While writing your essay, these are the most important things to keep in mind.
- Keep the introduction paragraph short
- Don't use overly complicated terms unless it suits the topic
- Each main paragraph should only present one main supporting piece of information
- Always keep in mind that you should not make an argument or try to convince the reader of something. The goal of an informative essay is to provide information.
- Do not present new information in the conclusion.
- Try reading the finished essay as if you know nothing about the subject to make sure it makes sense and has a good flow.
It's finally time to get to actually writing an informative essay! Now that you understand all the pieces and have done your planning, use your informative essay outline to start writing the essay. Let's go over each part in depth. How to Write an Informative Essay Introduction
Are you wondering how to start an informative essay? Well, an introduction paragraph's goal is to pique the reader's interest and briefly tell them what the essay is going to be about. An introduction isn't complicated to write as long as you follow the right structure.
- Background information
- Thesis statement
- Transition sentence
The very first sentence should be a hook. An interesting fact, question, or statement that engages the reader and makes them want to read more. Follow this up with some brief background information about the main topic. A thesis statement for an informative essay is different from a thesis statement for other types of essays because there is no argument to be made or claim to support. Rather the thesis statement should clearly state the purpose of the essay. End the introduction paragraph with a transition sentence that improves the overall flow of the essay. How to Write an Informative Essay Body
Following the five-paragraph format of essay writing, there should be three body paragraphs. Each body paragraph should talk about a specific piece of information or fact that you want to explain to the reader. The structure is:
- Topic sentence about the idea or fact being presented
- Supporting evidence and facts
- Transition to the next paragraph
You can learn a little more information from our explanatory essay example
The body of the essay is where you present the interesting information about the topic. Depending on the type of informative essay, these could be general facts shown in a new light, little known or new facts meant to educate the reader, or the steps in a how-to guide. Make sure you back up any statements you make with reliable sources. End each paragraph with a transition sentence to improve the overall flow of the essay. How to Write an Informative Essay Conclusion
A good conclusion is one of the most difficult things to write. It has to sum up all the major points of the informative paper while tying them all together and leaving the reader with some kind of new insight. This is the structure of a conclusion paragraph.
- Summary of the main ideas
- Restate the thesis statement or main purpose
- Final thoughts
Start the conclusion with a recap of the topic sentences of each body paragraph to remind the reader of the main pieces of information you want them to take away. Next, remind them of the thesis statement so that they connect the pieces of information to the overall purpose of the essay. Finally, ask them a question or suggest why the information is important so that they continue thinking about the essay after they are done reading it. Final words
You should now know how to write an excellent informative paper! In this guide from our essay service
, we've covered what an informative essay is, how to choose a good topic, how to come up with an outline, step-by-step instructions on how to write each paragraph, and several tips and general advice. If you follow the advice given here you will have a fun writing experience and get the chance to share information about a topic you feel passionate about. Good luck!

2023.04.01 23:00 fucmii disappointed where john wick went (and still is) going toward for its action scenes
my favorite part of the first john wick film was that it stayed as realistic as it could be. Through its action scenes, it's asking: "What if, in theory, there REALLY WAS this guy with insane reaction and skill going against the mob?". The people Wick goes against are clearly trained and skilled, just he's ridiculously more reactive and skilled than them. What (I think) makes John Wick badass is that there's no unrealistic superhero-power type shit helping him, he's just good at what he does.
I still found JW2's action entertaining, but when I watched it for the first time, I found myself immensely disappointed at how it started to seem like a typical action movie. "Cool" action hero practically asking to get into shootouts with bad guys that can't aim. How many times is John a static target, is shot at, and missed? The fact that it's happened enough times for me to notice is terrible. The museum scene is immaculate, however - it's the only part I find to be of the same quality as JW1.
JW3 sucked. The story stopped being believable, the action went from unrealistic-believable to just unrealistic-unbelievable. Bad-aim-bad-guys, ninjas, ninja dogs, tungsten plot-armor (tbf this happened in JW1 when John was captured). The throwing knives scene was fun, though I wish they had Yayan in that scene instead of at the continental.
JW4 was good. I still hate the bad-guy stormtrooper aim, ninjas, archers, and extreme cases of plot-armor, but the action scenes are at least creative - creative enough to be more entertaining than JW2 and 3's action scenes. I thought the club scene was overhyped and overrated, and I will continue to meatride the Red Circle.
EDIT: The only reason why I posted this here is because it doesn't seem like many other people share the same opinion I do, I barely found anything related on Google.
If anyone happens to know any movies with action scenes like John Wick (2014), Nobody, and Upgrade, please drop it in the comments :)

2023.04.01 22:58 HairyKraken Dan Felder on rotation and feedback
Hey LoR folks, I know you all want to hear more about the specifics of rotation and that's coming (there's a lot to talk about)
However, there's something important about rotation that seems to be less obvious, and worth emphasizing. Thread: (1)
Rotation was a LOT of up-front work for the team. Lots of game design work, analysis, engineering, visual design, UX, and more. We also knew it would upset some players in the short term.
This is important, because it proves something that's very good news: (2)
Rotation makes zero sense for us to do if we weren't betting on the long-term future of the game. Why spend all that extra effort if we weren't planning on many future expansions coming out? (3)
No matter how you feel about rotation, it's key to recognize that the only reason we would do it is because we believe in LoR's future.
There will be growing pains, but I believe LoR is going to be an even better game in 5 years than it is now.
See you in the game. :) (4)

2023.04.01 22:58 One_Piece_Go_D_Usopp [Tournament] APRIL FOOLS: most honest Usopp scaling PART 2* (this can be used to scale Ulti)
| || | submitted by One_Piece_Go_D_Usopp to OnePiecePowerScaling [link] [comments]
PART TWO*: Usopp, the weakest, yet very underrated Straw Hat.
*This is actually the only part since the mods instantly deleted my honest Go D. Usopp scaling
This is a more serious post than the previous part: the actual honest Usopp scaling. In fact he is actually extremely underrated and his scaling his misinterpreted.
Firstly, we need to scale Ulti to properly scale Usopp.
Ulti in Base
can attack Luffy and clash evenly with Luffy, while he coats himself in CoA. Remember, this is post Udon Luffy. He has ACoO and ACoA already and he is stronger than Katakuri, a YC1. Chapter 983
Ulti wins the clash
by sending Luffy away... this puts her AP (and her dura with haki) above Base Luffy who's on-guard using CoA to defend himself. Chapter 983
Luffy slams her and she receives no damage. Chapter 983
Her physical strength is greater than Luffy's and he feels the need to use Gear 4th to face her.
Disclaimer: I am not scaling Ulti to Luffy, she's just crazy strong and Luffy wouldn't beat her with ease without G4. Chapter 983
She then gets hit by a suprise-attack by Yamato and she gets up in a matter of seconds (end of chapter 983 -> start of chapter 984) with minimal damage. She is completely fine in chapter 986. Chapter 984
Ulti is able to clash with Yamato, while she is in base
and Yamato doesn't have the sea stone on her. This Yamato can clash with Hybrid Kaido and not get overpowered. Chapter 987
I'd like to mention that Ulti can trash-talk anyone including Kaido in chapter 978 and other Tobi Roppo are shocked (they're weak compared to her)
and again Kaido in chapter 979
as well as King in chapter 990
Based on all of this, Ulti is easily the strongest Tobi Roppo. She has better feats than Jack, the only thing making her lower is portrayal and narrative. Ulti scales at the top of Tobi Roppo or the bottom of YC3.
Offense: AP / Hax
Usopp with Skull Blast-Grass can hurt Page One, a very durable Tobi Roppo who can tank a hit from Gear 3rd and leave with no damage. Chapter 991
He can catch people with this Pop Green, Devil, which has meltinng properties. Chapter 995
Usopp has another way to hurt Page One! Flower Fireworks. While you could argue the other were shallow, this one clearly draws blood out of Page One
's neck / chin. Chapter 1011
Exploding Pine Cones is a big attack since Komachiyo, O-Tama's komainu, is small compared to it. Literally one of these bombs alone is already his size. It also damages Page One, although it stays shallow. Chapter 1011
I want to mention something that people should keep in mind to understand all these feats.
All the Tobi Roppo have Ancient Zoans, therefore they are way more durable than the average Tobi Roppo level character and they are more durable than some Commander level character. Hence why Usopp's AP is actually decent.
Usopp also has abilities allowing him to slow down his opponents. He can slow down Page One & Ulti with his Bamboo Javelin. Chapter 995
He can also momentarily stop Ulti with Sargasso from moving allowing Nami to perform a critical attack. Chapter 1016
Basically, Usopp's Offense scales below the average Tobi Roppo, but not far below that level
Speed: Travel Speed / Combat Speed
Usopp can run
really fast, even from Ulti & Page One. Chapter 991
Usopp's reaction speed
is good enough to perceive Ulti who's sneaking from behind. Chapter 1016
He can tag Ulti by shooting a Pop Green at her the same way she did right before. At least his main attacks (sniper) are fast. Chapter 1016
He can catch people with this Pop Green, Devil, which has meltinng properties.
This counts in his speed, since he could even catch on-guard Ulti. Chapter 995
The fact that Usopp can tag and hit Ulti & Page One with his attacks means his speed is good. While most of the time, he attacks them up-close or by suprise, there's still some attacks that land when his opponents are on-guard. Considering Usopp is never staigth up blitzed**, we can expect his speed to be around Tobi Roppo level, likely at the lower end
Durability / Endurance:
Usopp mentions that he had already tanked at least one Ulti Mortar
. He then tanks another one (at least the second one) and stays conscious. Based on the previously established Ulti scaling, Usopp's durability and endurance are crazily high. Chapter 995
Usopp can tank Ulti's headbutt this far into the fight and still stay conscious while he had already tanked multiple hits before. We know he stays conscious because he lands his next attack two pages later (see the previous section for the panel). Chapter 1016
Usopp's durability and endurance feats are great, he should be scaled at Tobi Roppo Tier in this category. This is really good considering Usopp is not a physical fighter
. I'll mention it again, but the durability of Tobi Roppo come from their fruit, which is something not everybody has, hence why Usopp can be scaled here.
Usopp, despite having already fought Ulti & Page One and fought many of Kaido's minions for hours causing great fatigue and exhaustion. In spite of that, he is still able to fight opponents who gave Izo trouble. Remember that Izo had recovered from his fight against Kaido dozens of chapter prior to that. Chapter 1036 Chapter 1038
Usopp is actually a quite versatile fighter since he has both long and short range attacks, and his techniques vary in any given situation. This is a list of his abilities:
- Various Pop Greens
- Impact Dial for offense & defense
- Several other Dials
- Kabuto combined with excellent sniping skills and Observation Haki
Before concluding I would like to mention that the tier mentionned here are as large as the YC3, YC2, etc... tiers.
Usopp can fight people who gave trouble to Izo, a 510 million berry guy who can hurt Kaido and beat a masked CP0 agent. For reference, Izo easily scales above Drake who got mid diffed by the same agents Izo fought. This basically puts Izo at the top of Tobi Roppo bare minimum
and he could possibly be bottom YC2, I personally think that puts him at the bottom of YC3
, relative to Jack if we don't wank Drake
. This puts Usopp at most two tiers below Tobi Roppo.
Usopp himself has a 500 million berry bounty, making him as strong as Dressrosa Luffy
in the eyes of the World Government. He is undoubtly very strong, this should put Usopp in Tobi Roppo Tier (portrayal).
Most importantly, while Usopp cannot beat Ulti and Page One, he can be decently troublesome to them and they are solidly Tobi Roppo Tier. This puts him a tier below them.
We can conclude that Usopp is at least in the middle of the tier below Tobi Roppo Tier at most at the top of that tier
. Whatever you call this tier, be it yonko executive
or yonko officer
Usopp is up there.
Finally, Usopp loses to any Tobi Roppo (Black Maria, Sasaki, Page One...), BMP Monster (Oven, Daifuku, Compote..., and I'll add Tamago) and other SHP (Nami, Chopper, Brook...). Nonetheless, he beats any lower Scabbard (Kanjuro, Kin, Kiku, Raizo), Mingo lieutenant (Pica, Vergo, Trebol...) and Grand Fleet Captain (Hakuba, Barto, Sai..., this includes Old Chinjao).
You may read the last subsection.
2023.04.01 22:58 Halbatroll9 Pro Clubs Best Striker Build as RB/LB (I promise)
-Position: LB or RB
-H/W: 6'2 194lbs
-Perks: Skilled Dribbler, Poacher, Threaded Pass
-Perk Benefits: Inside the box +15 finishing, +10 shot power, +15 volleys, +10 heading. While dribbling +15 reactions/dribbling/ball control/agility/balance. On through pass +30 vision, +15 long pass/short pass.
-Perk Traits: flair (through pass), flair (dribble), flair (shoot) inside box, boosts weak foot (shoot) inside box, boosts weak foot (through pass), power header inside box, swerve (through pass).
-Why is the OVR so bad? The algo weights defensive stats for a defensive build, and we've created a striker. Therefore OVR appears low.
-Why use RB/LB position? Strong base defensive, physical, and pace stats. We then use points and Perks to reach level 95+ stats in critical striker categories (finishing, agility, reactions, shot power, etc). It creates an incredibly powerful, fast, and balanced build.
-Special thanks to the spreadsheet and data mining for perks by: https://www.reddit.com/FIFA/comments/105qulz/fifa_23_pro_clubs_guide/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=android_app&utm_name=androidcss&utm_term=1&utm_content=share_button
Future content? I created some radial plots comparing build stats with perks points included if anyone's interested.

2023.04.01 22:56 Dimensionalist I took my Kickstarter Myst Book apart (so you don't have to)
After several years of neglect, my Kickstarter 25th Anniversary Myst book stopped working. I was hoping this would have been a tutorial on how to replace the battery, but replacing the battery didn't fix my book. I was not able to find many specs on the internet about the book's internal workings--apart from its battery ratings and a Reddit post with a response from someone remembering they had seen another
Reddit post about what the book looked like inside: https://www.reddit.com/myst/comments/enmtb1/opening_the_collection_book/
For people who want to know a little bit about what's going on inside, keep reading. If you don't want to see it "disassembled" click away.
The linking panel and all its electronics are a separate assembly from the rest of the book. They are attached with three horizontal strips of double-stick tape. It took a substantial amount of prying on the side with the USB port to get this assembly detached, but it may have been difficult just because I really had no idea how it was attached. https://imgur.com/a/roIV2Vy
Flip over the linking panel assembly, and you see there's no good way to get inside without ripping paper. I damaged it as little as I could, using an Exact-O knife to slice and separate the paper. https://imgur.com/a/bYx1GQ4
My book just wasn't even charging anymore, so I knew that at least the battery was dead (first bad sign). Found a replacement battery on Amazon from EEMB with all the same specs except slightly more mAh (which is the charge capacity). https://imgur.com/a/vpX0r9o
I didn't take pictures past this point, but I cut the old battery from its leads. I first tried connecting the electronics directly up to a 3.7V DC source but got nothing (second bad sign). I proceeded anyway with cutting off the connector that came with the new battery and soldering the new battery leads to the old battery leads. With battery connected up, I plugged the book into my computer to charge. And the charging icon never came on.
I guess this is a cautionary tale to let others know that once your book dies, there might not be anything you can do to get it working again. I didn't tear up the back of the panel any further to see the rest of the electronics because I'm not sure I would know what to do with them anyway. The damage done so far is obviously irreversible (bent up/torn paper) but it would have been easy enough to fix up, had I gotten the book working again.
I'm pretty sad there couldn't have just been a way to replace battery easily. I'm open to suggestions if anyone else has experienced this and succeeded.

2023.04.01 22:53 gjas24 Solar+PW with Demand Charging
| || |
First a little background for why the question is relevant... In Colorado one of the electric utilities (Core) decided to do demand charging instead of TOU ($2.50kw between 4-8pm). We also have a weird cap in the state constitution that limits a generation system to less than 10kw interconnection to the grid to qualify for net metering. submitted by gjas24 to TeslaSolar [link] [comments]
So simply if your inverter is bigger than 10kw the utility does not have to net meter. Instead you will make around $0.04 kwh instead of the $0.14 kwh for exported power if you are above this threshold. Tesla does not have a combo for this above the 7.6kw inverter in the powerwall2+ so it's just this 7.6kw or no net metering.
My FIL just got a Tesla solar system with 2 powerwalls sized under the cap. I figured out how to get the PW to cover the demand period by adding a TOU tier with a bogus high rate during that time. My wife and I are building a house in this same service area and it will be fully electric with a ground source heatpump and 2 teslas with decent commutes. We figured as a rough calculation we will need 4 powerwalls plus 20-30kw of solar. This will put us way above the net metering threshold.
Now the actual question... Is there a way anyone has found to get the batteries to drain down to the backup threshold during the evening/night/early morning but still retain enough energy to cover a demand period where I can not use ANY energy from the grid. (Just a single hour will jack my rate up during the month) Self powered would work but doesn't guarantee power for the demand period. Best solution would be for Tesla to let me set a second power threshold to reserve power for a demand period in the afternoon. I'm experimenting with my FILs system to try to get it to do what I want but it doesn't seem to want to drain the battery as far as I would like. You can see in the pictures the battery is not being drained for any car charging.

2023.04.01 22:49 TemporaryGospel 32 Draft Stories in 32 days -- Cincinnati Bengals
I've been digging in to the history of the draft for the last few weeks, for fun, and I've come across really really interesting draft picks over the years! If people still keep reading, I want to make one of these a day, each day, until the draft. This is day number 7, so it's time to mock the... Cincinnati Bengals
Mike Ferrell called Andre Smith the best high school o-line prospect since Orlando Pace. Rivals.com had him at the top tackle. He was considered to be the very best run blocker of a generation. He was *cannot miss* talent. He went to Alabama and became the fourth ever true freshman to start on the Alabama line. One service named him an all-American. His sophomore year, when Saban showed up, he won the Jacobs Blocking Trophy and was named first team all-SEC, and was a Playboy All-American. His junior year, he won the Outland Trophy, was named a unanimous All-American, and only allowed 6 QB pressures on 334 passing plays, in a season where he was only penalized twice. He made John Parker Wilson look good. He caught a pass. He was mocked at #1 in the draft the entire year.. Other than a QB needy team grabbing Stafford, nothing is stopping him from going 1st overall, right?
But the 2009 NFL draft rolls around, the Bengals grab Andre Smith at #6, and the next day, all of Cincinnati media acts like he’s an existential threat. Every headline is about the crazy risk that the Bengals took, as everyone offers crazy guesses what will happen.
What happened? How did we get here?
First, Smith got suspended from his bowl game for his contact with an agent. Back in a time when playing bowl games seemed to matter. Uh oh! He did some damage control, made the now foregone conclusion to declare for the draft, and hoped that people didn’t remember that on draft night. After all, he’s supposed to be a generational tackle.
Then the combine happened. Dude came in at 332 pounds, admitted he was out of shape, ran a 5.32 40 (incidentally, I’m in shape and I run a 5.34 40, neither here nor there)… and decided to run it without a shirt for some reason. Kind of an all-timer. You can see it here. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/1718615-andre-smiths-40-yard-dash-is-still-the-best-40-yard-dash
. Why without a shirt? Why not? Despite his supposedly herculean strength, he kind of bombs the bench press (according to a lot of keyboard warriors who wouldn’t get close to his scores– and often lost in the noise is that having longer arms makes it harder to put up big bench press numbers– Smith was such a good college lineman in part because of his crazy long arms). He interviews poorly. He’s pretty obviously out of shape. So, he leaves.
And the responsible person he told that he was leaving… uh… well, he didn’t tell anyone he was leaving the combine early. The national story is “where’s Andre Smith? Did a UFO take him?” Far too late, he turns up later saying he left the combine early to prepare for his Pro Day. But he was a punchline and then he was missing, and that was the national narrative.
AL.com, which is obviously very pro-Bama, said that the question wasn’t if his draft stock fell, but by how much. BleacherReport had him now, not at 3, but at the third lineman in their final mock. The Guardian mocked him as the third lineman, and their writeup began “whoever takes Smith is taking a gamble.” Kiper put him at 13th, saying that he can’t manage his weight, which an LT needs to do. McShay mocked him to the Niners at 10th, saying that it would take a great coach like Mike Singletary to keep Andre motivated. (Can I please have McShay’s job?) Andre’s sure looking like he’s out of the top-10.
Then stories started coming out that he was pushing the scales to 370 between seasons. And then the long-awaited Pro Day happened, where he was going to shut everyone up. He didn’t– he didn’t leave half way through and he kept his shirt on for his 40. But he didn’t really do better beyond that.
Draft night happens and by then everyone knows Stafford is going to the Lions first. Then the Rams, who desperately need linemen help, are up. And they take Jason Smith, who’s never done a three point stance before, and he’s out of the league in four years. It was kind of unthinkable before the combine that Andre could fall even this far, but here we are. People are wondering about his character, his physical ability, how much he cares, his personality, everything.
But the Bengals snag the man at 6th! Despite everything that’s happened, they go “big man block good” and they decide to make it work. And are repaid in kind when Smith– well– holds out a month for more money and misses training camp. He failed to stay in game shape in the holdout, and broke his foot in a non-contact play before the season ever began.
He went on to have a meaningful career, he was the starter by his third year, went to a second contract with the Bengals, and started most of their games for five years in a row. Not the expectation at Bama, but better than the lineman taken above him. But the unbelievable saga of the combine, the jokes, the bad pro day, the slide, and the injury were an incredible spectacle and probably one of the most memorable Bengals picks in the last few decades.
Honorable mention: I think I’m going to bring up 1999 like four times this series– but the Bengals turned down 9 draft picks, including two firsts, in order to take the third QB off the board, Akili Smith. And while it was a reasonable pick at the time, the Bengals traded the farm to get Ki-Jana Carter, who suffered a career-altering injury just three plays into the first preseason game. Steve McNaire was one of the next picks. Day 1 - The Cardinals make an unconventional pick at 8th Day 2 - Falcons GM Norm van Brocklin likes movies Day 3 - The Ravens select a QB off of some unique criteria Day 4 - The Bills find that the three rules for a QB is that you don't get them wet, get them cold, or feed them after midnight Day 5 - Jimmy Clausen Day 6 - The Bears lose a Carla-Jean-Moss-amount in a coin-flip

2023.04.01 22:49 reddituser__unkown Dog Tags
So I’m to be an officer soon (Choosing Between USNA or West Point)… I lost my dog tags given to me by my father recently unfortunately (2 months ago). NOTE: (don’t take offense) THIS IS 100% Custom/Personal but at the same time I don’t want my dog tags to look bad, for example, These personal customized dog tags is that they’ll be Both are Gold, In the 5-Lines to be Engraved; would it look favorable to have my initials in it (R.J.L.D) and rank LIEUTENANT, in those 5 Engraved lines and what else? Again this is to be personally customized soley for me but @ the same time I actually will be an officer (I know there aren’t gold dogtags (only Black-only for special ops)) but at the same time why not. Much thanks and if so, I don’t mean this post to be ‘offensive or annoying etc’ to anyone, as both my father and uncle served in the military and soon to be so willingly likewise myself.

2023.04.01 22:48 HSudev521 Redoing the DCEU (Again!) focusing on character growth and humanity with a sequel to my Flash pitch
PREVIOUS MOVIE IN THE UNIVERSE- Trinity: The World's Finest Direct Sequel to The Flash
This is Movie #10 of my ongoing DCEU rewrite that takes inspiration from what we got but makes it more authentic to the ethos of the characters, at least according to me. Sorry it took so long to write this movie. In anticipation of the new DCU, I will be wrapping up my DCEU redone posts as soon as I am done with my Phase 1. We are nearing the end of Chapter 1 of my DCEU rewrite and things are starting to heat up. A direct sequel to my Flash pitch
, also directed by Robert Zemeckis
. So, without further ado, let's get into:
The Flash II
We start with an establishing action scene. In MONTREAL, metahuman ROSCOE DILLON aka the TOP leads a heist on a bank. As the robbery happens, Roscoe induces vertigo in the people causing them to fall to their knees. He asks the bank teller to get him cash from the vault, when the bank teller presses the silent alarm, Roscoe shoots him. The bullet is about to kill him when all of a sudden, red and yellow blur whizzes into the room. The Bank teller is moved out of the way and safe and the bullet lodges harmlessly in the wall. As the civilians look on, BARRY ALLEN aka the FLASH stands triumphant in a brand-new super-suit. The Flash and the Top engage in a trippy battle . We see Barry’s desire for heroism and his mentality of rushing head long into trouble. Since coming to his own and moving past his guilt in the last movie, he has now replaced it with an unending sense of responsibility. He wants to save everyone so that no kid has to go through the pain that he went through after his mom’s murder. Barry, in this movie, will have to learn that some things are beyond his control and learn to slow down and live his life. Barry is often depicted as the most balanced member of the Justice League, in this movie, he will learn to become that.
On Comms, CISCO RAMON, and CAITLIN FROST guide him through the fight. Barry handcuffs Dillon with a zip tie and leaves him for the law enforcement as Caitlin informs him about a train going off the rails in MONTEREY, MEXICO. Barry runs to Monterey and helps evacuate all the people in the train. As he is struggling to move all people, the train comes to a grinding halt as SUPERMAN pushes against the head of the train bringing it to a grinding halt. Barry evacuates the remaining people and shakes hands with Superman. Barry lets him know that he is a big fan. Superman asks him to keep up the good work. Barry nods and is about to ask something but blanks in his starstruck awe. Superman simply smiles and says, “Until next time, Mr. Flash” before doing a quick tongue-in-cheek salute gesture and he flies away. Barry looks up in awe at Superman as he flies away and murmurs, completely star-struck, “Cool..”
Through comms, Barry and Cisco geek out over the former meeting Superman! Caitlin rolls her eyes and DR. HARRISON SLATE chuckles as Cisco complains that Barry did not get Superman to sign his suit. Suddenly, the Star City satellite picks up activity. Cisco lets Barry know that LEONARD SNART aka CAPTAIN COLD and his partner HEATWAVE aka MICK RORY are breaking into NATIONAL BANK in CENTRAL CITY. Barry runs in to stop them but Cold plays into his overzealousness and uses his own run-first-think-later mentality against him as a way to trap him and then escape. Leaving Barry in a block of supercooled solid, Barry struggles to escape it, cops surround the building. The CCPD Chief, DAVID SINGH asks ‘The Flash’ to step out and surrender even as JOE WEST tries to reason to Singh that the Flash is on their side. Singh says that ever since the speedster has arrived on the scene things have been more and more complicated. Barry tries to vibrate to generate enough electricity and heat to melt the ice. Finally, just before Singh is about to unmask Barry, he is able to generate the electricity and an electricity shock is sent into the block that melts the ice and frees Barry. Barry runs away, barely escaping law enforcement.
# The Flash: Into the SpeedForce
Barry arrives late at his job at Keystone PD as their new CSI. He holds 2 coffee cups. He spills some of it as he climbs up the stairs, hurriedly greeting everyone, He gets to the annex where his lab is. He is met by the other CSI working there, AUGUST HEART. Barry hands one of the coffees to August. Heart and Barry talk for a bit as they get called to a crime scene. They arrive at MERCURY LABS, a private research lab run by Stagg Industries. There, Barry meets DET. PATTY SPIVOT, a young recruit who quickly rose through the ranks. Barry and Patty have instant chemistry. They laugh and joke while solving the case together. Barry asks Patty about what was stolen. Patty tells Barry that the object stolen was an circuit stabilizer made of a Lithium-Eternium alloy, the latter being an extremely rare Kandahqi metal. Barry says that he thought there was barely any Eternium left in the world. Patty says that that is probably why the board was stolen. Barry looks around but he deduces that the robbery does not appear to have been committed for financial gain. There were other Eternium based chips there that weren’t stolen. Patty theorizes that maybe the burglar panicked and escaped, but Barry doubts that. Barry looks at the CCTV footage and finds nothing. It was there one second. And then it was gone. He asks Patty to slow down the video. As she does, he barely catches a glimpse of a yellow blur and a weight sinks in the pit of his stomach. Patty asks if he is okay. But before he can respond, they get a call from August. August was sent to investigate another robbery on the other end of town in an illegal underground street racing outfit. Heart mentions that one of the people there were killed. This shocks Patty and Barry. They ask if there were any evidence. August shakes his head. Then looking kind of unsure, he adds that there was a witness, however, but they won’t be able to believe what that young man has to say, he is probably traumatized and so not making any sense.
Barry and Patty arrive at the scene as August is still clearing out the scene. Barry walks up to the young boy- a shock of red hair and freckles. A kind smile. But a completely abrasive attitude. Barry talks to the boy. He tells Barry that his name is WALLACE but his friends just calls him Wally. Barry calls him Wally which the boy immediately cuts off because Barry is not his friend. Shaking it off, Barry asks the kid what he saw. He hesitates before saying that he thinks he saw something or someone like the Flash…“a speedster moving faster than sound…except-.” Before Wallace can complete, Barry finishes the sentence, “except he was yellow and red.” August and Patty look at Barry, eyebrows raised in intrigue. Barry asks what was stolen. Wallace says that the speedster stole a new mix of liquid kryptonite and nitromethane. Barry asks who produces that mix and Wallace retorts saying that he isn’t a snitch.
Cut to STAR Labs in Central City. Cisco, Caitlin, IRIS WEST, MALCOLM THAWNE and Joe discuss the situation with Barry when Dr. Slate arrives. Barry’s mental health is in ruin. He was clearly working on moving forward from his survivor’s guilt and leaving his mother’s death in the past. But with her killer back, Barry is living his nightmare. They discuss the Mercury Lab break in with Slate. Slate explains Mercury Labs in Keystone City and S.T.A.R. Labs in Central City were rivals until the particle accelerator accident crippled S.T.A.R. Labs. Since then, Mercury Labs has been working on a project involving tachyon particles that use Eternium-based Microboards and the team deduces this is the Man in the Yellow suit's target. They wonder what the man might be building. Cisco opines out loud that Eternium is a good conductor of kinetic energy and that this could be related to the speedforce since the man is a speedster. Mal asks if he is a speedster then why would he need a speed device.
Barry sits alone ruminating on all that is happening when Iris comes and sits next to him. Iris asks him what is bothering him. Barry says that he feels blindsided. Iris encourages him to do what he is best at. Barry thinks she is talking about his superpowers. But Iris corrects him and tells him to use his CSI skills.
Barry races to Keystone PD. He reassembles his old conspiracy board from his mother’s murder. He places new information and old and tries to piece together what the man in the yellow suit is building.
Meanwhile, Iris and Mal have dinner where they talk about what Barry is going through. Mal talks about the kinship he feels with Barry having grown up in an orphanage. He then mentions how he always wondered why Iris chose him over Barry given the long bond between them. Iris says that Barry was always so occupied with his past, he never even gave the future a chance. But that is not the case with Mal. He always thinks about the future.
Cut to KCPD. Barry is asleep on a pile of papers when Patty walks in. She asks Barry what is happening. He tells her part of the truth without giving away that he is the Flash. He talks about his mother’s murder and how he thought he was insane for years until the Flash showed up on the scene. Seeing the Flash Barry realized that speedsters like that are possible. He thinks the new mystery speedster is the same one who killed his mom. Barry and Patty talk and start piecing stuff together to try and make sense of the different “robberies” . They eventually figure out that all these parts are parts that were used by SAMANTHA SCUDDER to build her experimental quantum device. Patty asks Barry about the device, since he was the CSI that handled the case. Barry says that he found nothing of interest, brushing aside the question. Patty can feel Barry hiding something which annoys her a little. Barry excuses himself and heads to the STAR Labs.
At STAR Labs, Barry discusses with Cisco, Caitlin and Slate. They realize that the man in yellow wants to combine a tachyon generator with Samantha Scudder’s quantum portal device. Slate says that together, hypothetically, it can help someone travel in time. They realize his plan. Cisco runs diagnostics and says that the only piece missing is a frequency stabilizer of which there exists only one. In the Central City Mercury labs. Barry races to Mercury Labs.
At Mercury Labs, a physicist is going about his daily systems checks when a speedster in yellow comes and kills several guards. Luckily the physicist locks himself with the tachyon device in a quantum flux chamber. The yellow speedster attempts to get inside the chamber but fails. Barry arrives just as the man in yellow sends a speedforce lightning at the glass. Barry tries to stop him, but Barry gets tossed aside. The liquids in the room start levitating and windows crack as the two speedsters duke it out. Barry lets loose and chases the other speedster who is faster than ever. Barry demands answers for his mother's murder but the man in the yellow suit taunts him, that he will have to catch him first and speeds off again. The two end up in a stadium and start fighting. Man in the Yellow Suit taunts Barry and says that he will wipe Barry out as well as everyone who knows his secret. He says Barry shouldn’t have told his secret to friends and that they will die because of him. Before leaving, he tells Barry it is his destiny to lose to him, just as it was also destiny for Barry's mother to die that night. He says that in two days’ time, all his plans will finally come to fruition and nothing Barry does can stop him. By the time Cisco, Caitlin and Mal (whom they called) arrive at the stadium, Barry is clutching his knee and crying.
Next day, Barry goes to visit his father, HENRY ALLEN and confesses that he finally found the man who murdered Nora, but he got away, twice. Distraught, he tells his father it is now his fault that he is stuck behind bars. Henry tells him not to blame himself; that the murder has dominated Barry's life for fourteen years and he hasn't been able to truly lead his own life. Henry has also worked out that Barry is in love with Iris but never told her. Barry tells him that it doesn’t matter because she is with Mal. And he is starting to like Patty. He says that he is afraid he might screw even that up. He tells his son not to let the killer take any more of his life from him.
Exhausted, Barry goes to a bar and tries to get drunk, but he cannot be due to his high metabolism. Patty, who was at the bar, sees Barry and approaches him. The two of them talk and Barry talks about how conflicted and confused he is. Without going into details about his situation, he explains his emotions to her. Patty empathizes and gives him some advice. Barry and Patty’s heart to heart leads to them sleeping together.
Barry wakes up in the morning to a sleeping Patty. He sees the Man in the Yellow Suit through the window. Barry is petrified but fights through it and launches into action. Barry runs through town looking for the man in yellow but comes up with nothing.
At the CCPN, Iris is assigned to a new senior reporter ARTURO RODRIGUEZ, a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist and mentor of Lois Lane, who wrote about the “No Man’s Land” crisis in Gotham over twenty years ago and first reported on the Batman. Rodriguez tells Iris about the new expose he is working on- a story on Dr. Harrison Slate. Rodriguez tells Iris about Harrison, saying that 15 years ago Slate lost his wife in a car accident following which Slate turned into a recluse. The only people he has met since then have all ended up dead or missing in a short time. All except two employees at STAR Labs-Cisco, Caitlin; Barry and Barry’s friends including Iris. Recently, Slate met with the former head of Mercury Labs, DR. SIMON STAGG, just months before Stagg’s personal top-secret research was robbed by someone who was evidently a metahuman (Rodriguez reveals that he has a source in the CCPD) and Stagg has been “missing” since. Dr. Christina McGee who took his place in the Lab launched a full-blown search for Stagg, but it was as if he had disappeared from the face of the Earth. Iris calls his theory outlandish, but Rodriguez asks her to just talk to Barry.
Barry makes his way to STAR Labs. He is a beaten man. Exhausted physically and emotionally- stretched to his limits. Slate says that they need to trap the man in yellow. Barry suggests they use the device from Mercury Labs that the villain was unable to procure to create a trap for him. Slate, Caitlin and Joe talk with the head scientist of Mercury Labs, Dr. CHRISTINA MCGEE at the police station, trying to obtain the tachyon experiment as bait. The scientist refuses; believing Slate is looking for an advantage in the market again especially because Mercury is in shambles right now after the last director, Dr. Simon Stagg disappeared a few months ago. But after Barry pleads, she relents and hands over the device.
At S.T.A.R. Labs, Caitlin and Cisco work on the trap- an energy field containment device. Caitlin opens up to Cisco how insane her life has been since Ronnie was vaporized in the particle accelerator accident. He feels a weird deja vu working in the basement lab. She suggests that it might be because the last time either of them were down there was when her late husband, RONNIE RAYMOND was still alive and was tinkering with building the cold fusion reactor. The basement lab used to be his. Cisco reminisces about how much of an inspiration Ronnie was to him. Barry enters and help them build the trap. The three of them talk and we further explore the deep rapport and dynamic between the three friends. Barry opens his heart and shares his thoughts and fears. Cisco and Caitlin support him.
Barry arrives at the KCPD forensic lab late to find Patty waiting for him, working on the robberies. Barry tells her that he figured it out. And he thanks her for her help. She explodes at him in anger. She tells him that he is too busy chasing whatever phantom he is chasing to live a life. He left her this morning without a word. He solved the mystery of the robberies and did not say a word. He apologizes and says that he got preoccupied. She says that he can talk to her when he is ready to be honest and all there. Barry sits there alone as Patty walks out.
At the West residence, Joe is asleep on the couch as Iris looks at all the evidence that Rodriguez gave her regarding Dr. Slate. Mal walks in to find her buried in newspaper clippings and pieces of information. She learns that Barry’s mother’s killer is back and taunting him in order to get some tachyon device. This suddenly clicks for Iris as Stagg was researching a tachyon flux converter when he disappeared. Iris immediately calls Barry, worried.
At Jitters Cafe, Iris tells Barry about Rodriguez’s theory. She tells him that ever since Dr. Slate arrived at Central City, everything changed. Barry needs to make sure Slate isn’t working for the enemy. Barry laughs it off and calls Slate his mentor and like a parent. He convinces Iris that Slate is a good man. Iris asks Barry if he is convinced that he wants to hunt down Man in the Yellow Suit. Barry says yes. Barry spills his heart to her. Tells her how the night his mom died; time stood still for him. He tells her that he has spent every day since then trying to move beyond his guilt and gain a semblance of power over himself. But now that he has that power, he feels emptier than ever before. He can run into a burning building and save thousands of people. But who will save the little boy who had to see his father get wrongly arrested for killing his mother the same night he saw something inexplicable rip her apart. He chased that lightning all his life. Now he has this lightning inside of him. But has no idea what to do with it. Iris touches Barry heart and tells, “But you do. You always have.”
Barry goes back to STAR Labs where the trap has been completed. Cisco tells Barry that Dr. Slate has gone to get amplifiers from the remains of the particle accelerator tube. Barry tells Cisco and Caitlin about what Iris told him regarding Slate. Barry says that Arturo must be mistaken because Slate is a good guy. Cisco talks about his strained relationship with his own family and how Slate and Ronnie were the closest things he had to a father and a brother.
At CCPN, Iris takes all of the research that Rodriguez gave her and goes to tell Rodriguez that his hunch is wrong. Iris finds his office empty. She checks with the desk who say that he never reported for duty. Iris is confused because Rodriguez never misses work. Iris gets worried. She hurries to him home where she finds the place ransacked. She finds a not on his desk with an address for a house in Keystone City.
Meanwhile Slate retrieves amplifiers and comes out of the elevator to find Joe waiting for him in the central atrium of the lab. Joe voices his concern that Barry should stay out of the next stage of the plan as he is too close to this foe, but before he can finish, Barry entering from the other room, dismisses their concerns. Joe says that Mal has recruited a taskforce of loyal SWAT officers to provide them with backup and they will be there any minute. He asks Barry if Cisco and Caitlin are ready, and Barry says that they are. Slate says that then it is time to get started.
The trap is activated, and the tachyon prototype is set in the heart of the trap. They wait for the Man in the Yellow suit. Cisco has been releasing pulses from the tachyon device to draw his attention. Suddenly, the speedster arrives, and Cisco activates the trap; encasing him in a force field. Barry, hiding behind some equipment is paralyzed over seeing his mother’s killer so up close. Slate, Mal, Joe and the task force inspect their captive while Caitlin and Cisco remain in the control room to keep the trap running. In the chamber Joe attempts to interrogate the villain over Nora Allen's murder. The villain ignores him, but speaks to Slate; acting pleased they can meet face to face. The two trade barbs over knowledge of the other. When Slate points out they created the trap based on the villain's similar nature to the Flash, the villain laughs; claiming he is quite the reverse of the hero.
Iris arrives in Keystone and knocks on the door. The door is opened by none other than Patty Spivot.
Back at STAR Labs, suddenly Cisco notes a fluctuation in the barrier and tries to warn Slate; just as the barrier drops for a second. The villain quickly grabs Slate, pulling him into the force field and proceeds to violently beat him. Joe has no option but to break the field generator to save Slate from the attack. The Man in the Yellow suit takes out the task force, flashes over to Mal and stares into his frightened eyes but strangely spares him. The villain then speeds over to Joe and chokes him. Seeing Joe getting choked, snaps Barry out of PTSD and he speeds in and takes The Man in the Yellow suit outside flying out of the building in a tornado of red and yellow electricity, Caitlin and Cisco run outside to watch the fight. The fight is not going well for Barry as the man in yellow continually beats on him. The man in yellow reveals that not only did he kill Barry’s mother but that he is the one who brought the Rogues together. Before he can kill Barry however, he is speed starts sputtering out. Barry is surprised as he sees a second of worry in Reverse Flash eyes. He tells Barry that "their race is not yet done" and that he will see him soon, he then speeds away with the tachyon device. Cisco and Caitlin run over to help Barry.
Patty and Iris talk, both having introduced themselves to each other. Patty immediately recognizes Iris as Barry’s bestfriend. Patty says that Barry has talked a lot about Iris to her. Iris unfortunately cannot reciprocate which makes Patty a bit crestfallen. Patty attempts to change the topic and Iris says that she was following a lead about her lead-reporter Arturo Rodriguez. The name causes Patty to sit up.
She says that a week ago, Barry came to her with some case files about a string of mysterious robberies in Keystone and Central City. She helped Barry put the evidence together and came to the breakthrough that everything stolen were parts that Samantha Scudder used in her mirror device. Even though Barry told her that he caught the culprit, when she called CCPD, they hadn’t. She did not know what Barry was doing, but she had to figure out answers for herself. So she contacted an old college friend Naomi Singh who helped her hack into ARGUS database. She read through the research of Sam Scudder. And realized that all of the original plans for the quantum mirror device was given to her by Dr. Harrison Slate. Not only that, a day after her death, Slate paid off cleaning crews cleaning up the fight scene between Sam and the Flash to get access to her tech. This caused Patty to look further into Slate and realized that Barry was working with Slate. Thinking that Barry was a dirty cop who Slate is controlling, and that’s why Barry lied to her about the arrests, she was making a case against Slate to free Barry. She says that now that Iris knows this what she needs to know is why Iris is working for Slate. Patty pulls a gun on Iris. Continued in: PART II
