2020.06.27 21:45 biggreekgeek Flatten the Curve. Part 26. 2015 was a busy year. Pandemic predictions, bat coronavirus human link found, CRISPR/Cas9, and that birdman plauge doctor video with, "you are already dead". Good times.

Previous post here.
You do realize that we have so much information thrown at us on a daily basis that we don't remember what happened a few months ago, let alone over a year ago. Not unless the internet reminds us.
And we've had a pretty crazy last little while, haven't we? Has the information settled in or has it desensitized? Did you try and make sense of it all, or did you forget about it?
Because yesterday was normal, and today is new normal. And new normal is really just Hypernormal, an older meaning wrapped in a prettier word.
So lets talk a little about the new normal and the coronavirus and it's place in it all. Not why it's here, just it's place.
Now I know most people seem to think it's a hoax. And that's fine, think what you will. I don't agree, and I have my reasons. Now I will agree that not everything is as it seems with the virus, because there are far too many inconsistencies that don't add up. So what's the why of the virus, well that's for later, because I do think there's a second wave coming, and I want it fresh in everyone's mind, not washed away in this new normal information overload that we live in.
So why bring it up?
Let me answer that question for you, but in order to do that, we have to go back a little in time to around 2015, and something I completely forgot about until last night.
Do you remember the plague doctor? The guy in that really creepy viral video dressed like in a bird suit from the mid 1600's.
The video was called, 11B-X-1371.
There was a lot of attention on this, and a lot of Reddit put in effort at looking at the details and figuring out the clues.
So lets look again.
First I have to say, this was all apparently a hoax video that went viral. I'm not sure why someone would make a hoax like this, but let's take another look and see some big picture dates here.
I have to throw this in, I looked far and wide when the epidemic first started, and I do not recall ever seeing this pop up in search results. Ralph Baric and 2015, yes, jumping from bats to humans, no. Yes I could have just missed it, so if anyone else saw it, please chime in.
We also have this Ted Talk, Mar. 19, 2015 · The world needs to prepared for the next major health crisis Bill Gates has warned at the Ted conference in Vancouver.
So we have the plague doctor video on May 9th, 2015.
The corona bat discovery on Nov 10th 2015.
2015 was a pretty busy year, wasn't it?
It would be pretty easy to stop there and make like ET and go home, but that's not going to happen.
Now let's dive in and look at some details about the video.
The binary title of AETBX's YouTube posting was "Muerte", Spanish for "death", and the description similarly resolved to Spanish text—"Te queda 1 año menos", rendered in English as "you have one less year". The triangle-and-square message near the end of the video was found to read "Ad oppugnare homines" in Pigpen cipher—Latin for "To attack or target men".
I don't know about you, but anything in Latin, even Pigpen Latin, sounds ominous and evokes images of declarations issued by ancient secret society's hell bent on word domination.
Single-frame inserts were found to have Morse code and other texts in common ciphers. The Morse's plaintext was the phrase "RED LIPS LIKE TENTH". A sequence of 20 pairs of two-digit characters was found to be the latitude and longitude of the White House in Washington; it was later noted that the "RED LIPS" phrase could be an intended anagram for "KILL THE PRESIDENT". These were seen as a threat against the United States in general and President Barack Obama in particular. Krahbichler reported that a cipher in the video could be decoded to reveal the message "STANDANDFIGHTWITHUSTAKEDOWNTHEBLACKBEASTKILLHISDISEASEORFALLWITHTHEREST", and that the "BLACKBEAST" of the message could be Obama, an African-American. Krahbichler said that he believed that the video contained a political message, but was not a terrorist threat.
Now let's think about it another way for a change.
The video states that you have one year left. And while it does, he used fingers and holds up, three, one, two.
Could the one year less be a message to subtract one from each of the numbers?
Ending up with 201.
Event 201. The same event that Bill gates sponsored.
Again, just a different point of view.
It also had.
A new order is on the rise. You will join, or you will fall. The virus has spread too far; it must be stopped. We will die it at it's root. 13 ani 50, will burn.
And.
SOON COMES THE FALL/ANOTHER GREAT EMPIRE.
THE FALL/THE EAGLE ON THE HORIZON.
JOIN US. THE EAGLE = INFECTED WILL SPREADD HIS DISEASE.
(Somebody should make a bedtime story out of this!)
Now what about Obama? Yes they mentioned the White House, and it is unfortunately a natural jump, but what if the intent was merely racist, but not directed towards any single individual?
What if there was another intent behind the draconian arrests on TV that led to arrested individuals dying through excessive police force?
Facial-recognition systems misidentified people of color more often than white people, a landmark federal study released Thursday shows, casting new doubts on a rapidly expanding investigative technique widely used by law enforcement across the United States. Asian and African American people were up to 100 times more likely to be misidentified than white men, depending on the particular algorithm and type of search. Native Americans had the highest false-positive rate of all ethnicities, according to the study, which found that systems varied widely in their accuracy. The faces of African American women were falsely identified more often in the kinds of searches used by police investigators where an image is compared to thousands or millions of others in hopes of identifying a suspect.
Whelp, that's a bit of a different spin, isn't it?
Is there anything else that could possibly be considered here?
The 11B-X-1371 could be a hoax video, yet it sure had a lot of media coverage for a strange internet video, didn't it? And considering how strange our new normal is getting, I really don’t think it's too strange to warrant this second look. And I also don't think it's strange to dig deeper around 2015, and see what else happened at that time.
Because more happened, and it's picking up steam.
Do you remember CRISPCas9? Because Bill Gates remembers. And so does DARPA, Venture Capitalist Firms, and mosquitoes. Yep. Those bloodsucking malaria spreading insects are being targeted with the Raid equivalent of gene editing. CRISPCas9. Kills. Bugs. Dead.
Sure the technology didn't just appear in 2015, but more money did.
The lead investor is a newly created firm called bng0, a select group of family offices led by Boris Nikolic, who was previously a science advisor to Bill Gates. Both Editas and Gates’ office confirm that the Microsoft billionaire, who is the world’s richest man, is among the bng0 backers. Along with Google Ventures, Omega Fund, and more. How much? 120 million dollars. When? August 10th 2015.
So. They invested in a biotechnology firm, isn’t that a good investment for humanity's future?
Emails obtained through a freedom of Information request by U.S.–based Prickly Research reveal that the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has given approximately $100 million for gene drive research1, $35 million more than previously reported 2, making them likely the largest single funder of gene drive research on the planet 3. The emails also reveal that DARPA either funds or co-ordinates with almost all major players working on gene drive development as well as the key holders of patents on CRISPR gene editing technology 4. These funds go beyond the US; DARPA is now also directly funding gene drive researchers in Australia (including monies given to an Australian government agency, CSIRO) 5 and researchers in the UK. The files also reveal an extremely high level of interest and activity by other sections of the U.S. military and Intelligence community. Secret Military Study draws in Monsanto: The emails reveal that the secretive JASON group of military advisors produced a classified study on gene drive this year (2017). The report was commissioned following an earlier classified 2016 JASON report on “genome editing” that has not previously been publicly reported on although it “received considerable attention among various agencies of the U.S. government.
Now you'll remember the 2015 plague video? And then him saying you have one year less? Was it about event 201? Or was it indicating the classified news that would come out in 2016 about gene editing?
Wired Magazine, in a breathless cover story, just called it “The Genesis Engine,” instructing readers to “buckle up” because the easy DNA editing CRISPR enables will change the world.
So we have a plague video, threats against the United States, UNC and coronavirus Bat discovery, CRISPCas9, Darpa and classified research, plus Bill Gates giving a Ted Talk about a coronavirus pandemic while pumping money into Gene Drive technology.
All in 2015.
And lets not forget about breathlessly calling the technology the Genesis Engine. You know, like the Bible. Or like all the articles that question our Geoengineering and Bioengineering attempts to play God?
Let's keep calm and carry on.
Over the next four years a new program in the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) plans to cultivate, among other things, a kind of cleanup crew for engineered genes deemed harmful to or undesirable in an ecosystem. The initiative, called Safe Genes, comes at a time when so-called “gene drive” systems, which override the standard rules of gene inheritance and natural selection, are raising hopes among some scientists that the technology could alter or suppress populations of disease-carrying insects or other pests in as few as 20 generations. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation sees so much promise in gene drive technology that it plans to double spending on its Target Malaria initiative, which aims to create systems for driving genes in two species of malaria mosquitoes, to $70 million. Yet without careful precautions, a gene drive released into the wild could spread or change in unexpected ways. Kevin Esvelt, head of the Sculpting Evolution lab at MIT Media Lab, which is applying for Safe Genes funding in collaboration with eight other research groups, predicts that eventually, perhaps around 15 years from now, an accident will allow a drive with potential to spread globally to escape laboratory controls. “It’s not going to be bioterror,” he says, “it’s going to be ‘bioerror".
So now we have an epidemic, bioengineered mosquitoes to stop the spread of malaria, a President who insisted that anti-malarial drugs worked against COVID-19, Chinese scientists who worked with Ralph Baric and other scientists who worked in a Canadian Biolab, Bill Gates being the planet crier warning of an upcoming pandemic.
And does anyone honestly believe that they can make sense of this Unrestricted Warfare/Full Spectrum Dominance that's being waged hidden in plain sight?
The New Normal becomes a lot easier to see when you change perspective, even if it doesn't any clearer as to who is doing what. Because before you jump the gun and blame China, ask yourself how viral all the media reports were about the Chinese scientists? Very. Although that could have also been a slow trickle to acclimatize us to our New Normal war.
Who knows?
So lets look at another piece of information.
She says her team is also working hard on the Juno project. And Editas is working on hemoglobinopathy, a type of genetic condition in which the molecule that carries oxygen in red blood cells is defective. That will be a tougher project: it will involve not just cutting out a DNA misspelling, but actually editing a gene.
Ah. Hemoglobinopathy. Why of course. Why didn't I think of that when I was doing my CRISPCas9 gene editing? Seriously. It's so obvious it was hiding in plain sight.
A defective cell. Low oxygen. A virus that attacks the blood. Lets see.
More recently, two innovative pathophysiology hypotheses have been proposed, concerning hemoglobin dysfunction and tissue iron overload, based on preliminary computational and genetic sequencing researches. A preliminary paper about the viral inhibition of heme metabolism, by binding to beta-chains of hemoglobin through surface glycoproteins,4 has been followed by another publication about virus-induced hemoglobin denaturation.5 This hemoglobin alteration would contribute to the oxygen deprived multi-faceted syndrome, which is actually generated by SARS-CoV-2.
Or let's look over here.
At the same time, orf1ab, ORF10 and ORF3a proteins coordinated to attack heme on the 1-beta chain of hemoglobin, dissociating iron to form porphyrin. Deoxyhemoglobin is more vulnerable to virus attacks than oxidized hemoglobin. The attack will cause less and less hemoglobin that can carry oxygen and carbon dioxide, producing symptoms of respiratory distress. Virus attack damaged many organs and tissues. Lung cells are toxic and inflammatory due to derivatives produced by the attack, which eventually resulted in ground-glass-like lung images. Capillaries easily broken due to inflammation.
Or let's look in plain English.
A dangerous symptom of the coronavirus that can cause a patient to fall unconscious or even die is known as hypoxia — when the body’s tissues do not receive enough oxygen. Dr. Richard Levitan, an emergency doctor working in New York City, wrote for the New York Times at the end of April that he has seen COVID-19 patients with “alarmingly low” oxygen levels, but no shortness of breath. He describes this as “silent hypoxia”. These patients had oxygen saturation levels as low as 50 per cent when normal levels are usually at 94 to 100 per cent at sea level, Levitan explained. These patients had oxygen saturation levels as low as 50 per cent when normal levels are usually at 94 to 100 per cent at sea level, Levitan explained.
One doctor treating COVID-19 patients in New York says it was like altitude sickness. It was “as if tens of thousands of my fellow New Yorkers are stuck on a plane at 30,000 feet and the cabin pressure is slowly being let out. These patients are slowly being starved of oxygen,” said Cameron Kyle-Sidell, MD, an emergency room and critical care doctor at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn who has been posting about his experience on social media. In an editorial in the journal Intensive Care Medicine, Luciano Gattinoni, MD, a guest professor of anesthesia and intensive care at the University of Gottingen in Germany, and one of the world’s experts in mechanical ventilation, says more than half the patients he and his colleagues have treated in Northern Italy have had this unusual symptom. They seem to be able to breathe just fine, but their oxygen is very low. According to Gattinoni, about 30% of COVID-19 patients who come to the hospital have more classic symptoms of acute respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS. Their lungs are cloudy on imaging scans, and they’re stiff and inflamed, showing that they aren’t working well. The patients also have low levels of oxygen in their blood, and they are struggling to breathe. They look like patients with severe pneumonia caused by a virus. This is the type of lung trouble doctors are more used to seeing with respiratory diseases like influenza and SARS.
Did you read that? Cause I did. ABOUT 30% of COVID-19 patients who come to the hospital have more classic symptoms of acute respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS.

THIRTY PERCENT.

Gattinoni says putting a patient like this on a ventilator under too high a pressure may cause lung damage that ultimately looks like ARDS. So he cautions that doctors need to be aware of the COVID-19 patients’ symptoms and need to use the ventilator carefully and sparingly.
Remember the ventilators? And all the blowback for daring to disagree with the concensus?
"This is a kind of disease in which you don't have to follow the protocol -- you have to follow the physiology," Gattinoni said. "Unfortunately, many, many doctors around the world cannot think outside the protocol."
That article was from April 7th 2020. It makes you think, doesn’t it? All the false negatives and false positives. There was even an all out media blitz telling you that you shouldn't believe this information. Just listen to the experts, right?
So what is going on? Is there a bigger picture? How do we put the puzzle together? How does severe hypoxia in patients with no symptoms and cytokine storms fit into all of this? And why are they so positive about a second wave, when all the other viral outbreaks didn't have them? And why do they change their mind on how it spreads?
And it might be a good idea to go back to reexamine the whole wearing a mask that limits your oxygen intake. I know, you're going to feel foolish after the whole, don't wear a mask, wear a mask, maybe wear a mask, you probably should wear a mask, no, definitely wear a mask, episode, but hey, lives are at stake, maybe figure it out.
And what about this in 2015 as well from Ralph Baric at UNC? New SARS-like virus can jump directly from bats to humans, no treatment available.
And then some women eats bat soup and none of us can leave home? Or it was made in a laboratory just up the block in Wuhan from the bat soup lady? Or from the wet market?
And what about all the keep calm and happy hypoxia on in this new normal?
Whelp, I'll have to leave that to another post, because this one's already too long. So just ruminate on the topics and I'll be compiling the remainder shortly.
Take care. Be safe. Stay aware and be prepared. Talk soon.
EDIT: Nice find by luffarMickez. 11B-X stands for: The month ”11”. X = 10 in roman numerals. Corona bat discovered november 10th.

2020.05.21 20:00 Salt_Seeker Where & How to Buy D. Gray-Man (SHUEISHA JUMP REMIX) Volumes

As the title mentioned, this post was created to help those who want to purchase the D. Gray-man (SHUEISHA JUMP REMIX) volumes. I think it'll help the D. Gray-man community if I and other D. Gray-man fans can share and explain their methods in one place, so I hope this helps!

So far, these are some sites that I've discovered for ordering D. Gray-man Remix volumes:
WEBSITE / LINK VOLUME LINK(S) INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Animate Japan Volume 2 (Scroll down for the links to all 8 volumes or find the direct links in the comments below; Update: Volume 1 link is now N/A on the site.) No
Amazon Japan Volume 1 (Search for other volumes using the keyword "D. Gray-man Remix" or find the direct links in the comments below) Yes/No? (I live in the U.S. and for me, the volumes were made available for shipping only after the release date; no pre-ordering.)
CD Japan Using the keyword search "D. Gray-man Remix" Yes
Honto Using the keyword search "D. Gray-man Remix" Yes
ZenMarket Proxy Service (Copy & Paste the volume link(s) you want from Animate Japan and they'll be a proxy service that buys it for you in Japan and ships it to wherever you are internationally) Yes
White Rabbit Express Proxy Service (Copy & Paste the volume link(s) you want from Animate Japan and they'll be a proxy service that buys it for you in Japan and ships it to wherever you are internationally) Yes
\ Note:* I didn't try all of these services, but these seem the most viable from my research. Also, I'm from the U.S., so idk how each of these services work for other places. However, I think these sites should generally work for most people.

How to Order from each website (from my experience/what I can tell):

**********

FAQ
(I'm going to reiterate some stuff from my other post, since I figured having information consolidated into one post may be helpful to people.)
What are D. Gray-man (SHUEISHA JUMP REMIX) volumes?
D. Gray-man (SHUEISHA JUMP REMIX) volumes are Omnibus re-releases that have new covers and include a special art postcard per volume (and a limited edition acrylic stand per volume if you specifically order through Animate Japan) to tie-in with Katsura Hoshino's D. Gray-man World Art Exhibition in Tokyo. Hoshino-sensei talked a bit about these things in her May 1, 2020 Instagram LIVE, which you can watch the translated version of here (go to 11:28 for her explanation of these volumes).
I believe these volumes will only be printed in Japan as they are special/limited to the event, but there have been Omnibus D. Gray-man manga volumes printed in the U.S. and stuff with the old cover art a while back.
According to JC出版【集英社ジャンプ・リミックス】's Twitter post / Animate Japan website (scroll down) there's a total of 8 volumes coming out, each with specific release dates. You can ordepre-order all these volumes through Animate Japan and get some special box/case for your volumes if you collect all eight volumes/stamps from them.

What about other websites and services like [insert website name here]?
As I mentioned above, these are the ones I've found so far. There may be other sites that give you these options or perhaps other proxy services that may or may not be better. If you have found any good sites for getting these D. Gray-man Remix volumes, feel free to comment down below for your fellow D. Gray-man community members. As for another reason I may not have listed [insert website name here] is probably because I tried searching for the volumes using the key term "D. Gray-man Remix," but came up with no results.

What keywords/search terms can I type in to find these D. Gray-man Remix volumes on other websites, etc.?
Since the D. Gray-man manga is written in English even in Japan, I think it would be fine to search the term(s) "D. Gray-man Remix" or "D. Gray-man ([insert volume number here]) Remix." You can also try copy and pasting the specific volume name from the Animate Japan website, but I think the key terms above are good enough.

I can't read [insert website name here] because it's in Japanese.
Please turn on the website's google translate to alleviate your problems. The auto-google translate function on Chrome for each website is pretty handy for non-Japanese users, and the translation is decent enough for your comprehension in searching and buying (in my opinion). If you don't understand certain phrases or feel that the translation is garbled, perhaps return it to the original language and copy/paste the phrase into jisho.org or ask someone in the comments below or elsewhere.

I will update the post to the best of my ability as time goes on (but no promises on it being perfect :P)

2020.03.06 02:22 Joesocktwo The fed repos are an attempt to prop up the global banking industry

The GitHub repository is here. I need someone to curate it. Feel free to reach out. Respond to the discussion opened by ctabka to be invited as a collaborator.

Before people start throwing money at stocks they haven't researched: I am not (yet) prescribing any positions. The stocks I've listed in the edit at the bottom of this thread are what I've collected from the comments and have not been vetted by me. I'm floating the idea of opening a google doc for public collaboration on research into these banks. I don't vouch for any of the tickers I've mentioned in this thread. Yet.
I also want to make it clear that I'm not predicting a bunch of US banks to fail. They're better insulated from this than the rest of the world. The vulnerable ones are abroad, and they're the ones with really lazy lending standards. US banks will be hit, but likely won't tank. Also, as stated at the end of this post, please correct me where I'm wrong. Feel free to leave a comment, but definitely reach out to me via chat or DMs so your message doesn't get buried. I would rather prioritize constructive criticism than a bunch of excited assent - if I am wrong, tell me in my DMs, preferably with an explanation rather than just "you're full of shit"
Drop me a chat (not a dm, swear to god, reddit doesn't need two different messaging systems) if you'd like to talk about coordinating. I'll get up with you guys tomorrow. I would love to pool information and repost this over the weekend with a more comprehensive picture of what the fuck is going on with the international lending system. Cheers!
Jesus, this really blew up. I'm at work right now, so I won't be super available to respond. Suffice it to say, though, that I've received an overwhelming amount of responses indicating interest in collaboration. After work today, (4-5 pm EST) I'll start really going through all the messages you guys have send me and shooting off replies. Mods have approved a Google doc so we can all contribute, and a disc chat might be in order, since there are so many of you fucking autists that have reached out. God bless. I'll be in touch soon.

Forgot to put strike/date at the top: I'm in September BAC $18 puts. Banks will start failing later this year. It's hard to tell which ones will fail, due to the shadowy nature of the shadow lending market. That, and the dollar will moon. You want positions spoonfed to you? Fuck off. This post is half food for thought, half explanation. Trying to follow the money here is hard. If you're lazy, just buy puts on indices like $INDA and $EWG and $EWY: any country that's loaded up on eurodollars.

Alright, you tards, listen up: this is going to be a long, confusing post.

First off, I'd like to say that I'm not smart. But that doesn't concern me, because you're not smart, either. I just began reading about repo operations a few days ago. I've seen a few posts on here lately remarking on the repo ops, and a lot of misconceptions about what they are and what they're intended to do. I've learned all of what I'm going to post here from other users on here and from my own research.

The most important thing you need to understand about the repo market is that it's a black box. It's an interbank loan market where securities (ideally bonds) are put up as collateral for short-term cash loans. The transactions are private and the market usually sets the rates. Repurchase agreements are semantically different from fed repos, but operate in the exact same way. This is important. Banks, per federal legislation, are required to keep a minimum amount of cash on hand to prevent liquidity issues. The repo market exists as a way to circumvent these requirements; banks run as close to the reserve requirements as possible to maximize their profitability, and sometimes run below the limit. In this case, the bank posts collateral on the repo market in exchange for liquid cash to meet the requirements again.

In September of last year, the fed was forced to offer hundreds of billions of dollars in repo agreements to banks. This is because the interbank repo interest rate had reached 10% due to liquidity problems. I'm still not sure, and I'm not sure that anyone else is sure, why the liquidity shortage arose, but it did. If I were to hazard a guess, it's because big domestic lenders, sensing volatility abroad, started to pull out of the repo market. Since then, the fed has been, on-and-off, offering repo agreements to large banks (designated banks are called Primary Dealer Banks [PDBs]) and they hold a special status and maintain accounts with the fed. Once these PDBs post collateral (again, securities), money (kind of) is transferred temporarily to their fed account. These PDBs then distribute the cash in the interbank repo market (which is anonymous) at a slight profit. The fed repo interest rate was around 1.6%; on Tuesday night, it jumped up to 1.8% because of the emergency demand.

The fed had planned to cut repo ops to 0 by April of this year, essentially weaning the US banking system off of liquidity infusions. This didn't happen. Due to supply chain disruptions and market volatility, the fed was forced to offer several hundred billion in overnight repo agreements this week to PDBs in an effort to maintain liquidity. In fact, this month is set to hit record repo lending balances. Furthermore, the fed is expecting another $130b to be repaid in the next three weeks, sucking even more liquidity out of the market.
Edit: The fed was also pondering establishing a standing clearing house for fed repos to smaller entities like hedge funds. Hopefully, they're walking that idea back, because it's a fucking terrible one.

Now, here's where I learned I was wrong, and this is a point of confusion for some: the banks don't need the liquidity for themselves. They need the liquidity for their borrowers. See, these PDBs float money anonymously in the repo market to lots and lots of entities, both domestic and foreign. This is shadow banking. Remember when I said the repo market is a black box? Right, well, American banks have been lending money to foreign banks that don't have as stringent of regulations as American ones do. In the US, between two US banks, when a loan is written, some percentage of the loan size must be physically transferred over to the borrower (the reserve amount). Between an American bank and a foreign bank, though, no such requirement exists.

From this discrepancy in regulation, the eurodollar is born. The eurodollar is imaginary money that is printed by American banks: when they make a loan to a foreign bank, the loan exists only on the balance sheets. There is no physical manifestation of currency transfer. Consequently, eurodollars get leveraged to shit. Instead of the fractional reserve system, the ideal interbank loan system in America, eurodollars can get loaned indefinitely, forever. Eurodollars are paying factory workers, building bridges, and trading as currency. But it's not currency. And because eurodollars are what circulate outside the US, real USD are becoming increasingly rare.

You see, the USD has become the de facto global currency. There's a lot of confidence in it. It backs virtually every exchange of goods or services in the world. Right now, though, emerging markets' banks aren't really using it; they're hoarding it. Additionally, they're accepting awful collateral in exchange for eurodollars, because they know the USD has intrinsic value and eurodollars are imaginary. Collateral like subprime loans. Sound familiar? It should, because the 08 crisis was global because of the international monetary system. The mortgage defaults here at home were just the impetus - just like the supply chain disruptions this year might be. The subprime mortgage scandal was just the scapegoat for the underlying fragility of the eurodollar system.

Now, PDBs are aware of this. That's one reason they're starting to become stingier with their lending. They know that their borrowers are accepting garbage collateral in exchange for eurodollars. They know that foreign banks are leveraging themselves up to the tits on low-grade collateral, which means, in essence, the fed is, by proxy, making out hundreds of billions in loans to banks in places like India for fucking used car loans instead of treasury bonds. So, say that Shyam over in India can't make his car payments this month because he hasn't worked since the quarantine began. And his neighbors all do the same. Without US liquidity injections, channeled through the PDBs and into the shady repo market, that Indian bank will fail.

Now, that's why it matters that US lenders are pulling out of foreign markets: with supply/manufacturing disruptions and increasing volatility all over the world, foreign banks are direly hurting for liquidity so they can make out loans for businesses and manufacturers and individuals and all sorts of entities. If they don't get this liquidity, they're likely to default. And what happens when these capital groups and small banks die? They default on their loans. So on, up the chain. Say JPM takes out $50b against its treasuries from the fed. It then sells that money on the repo market. Eventually, that money finds its way to Yong Jiang over in China, who took out a loan to keep the lights on in the McDonald's Toy factory in Hubei. Well, three months later, sales haven't made up for lost revenue during the quarantine, and Yong Jiang becomes insolvent and defaults on his loan. That default makes its way back up the ladder to JPM. Now, JPM can either default on its loan from the fed (and bonds get dumped on the market) or it can liquidate some of its assets to pay the fed back.

JPM has made this calculation and decided, fuck no, it wants none of that. The problem is, though, that the loan has already been taken out by Yong Jiang. Say Yong Jiang's bank needs some liquidity because Yong defaults. Well, JPM has stopped taking fed repos because of the risk, so there's no money to buy on the market, and Yong's bank fails. This happens dozens of times, across dozens of countries. Pretty soon, the international banking industry faces systemic collapse. For reference, the global repo market is valued at $12T USD, and only 3/4 of it is backed by "pristine collateral" - government bonds. That means that $3T of it is in equities or derivatives. The fed's balance sheet is only $4T USD in comparison. Additionally, $.5T is in private capital groups, which are entirely opaque and likely have rotten fucking lending standards. No way to see who they're lending to, or what collateral they're taking.

We're already seeing this beginning: India's Yes Bank is about to be nationalized due to, you guessed it, liquidity problems. It's been involved in shadow lending practices, and American liquidity is starting to dry up across the world. China is also heavily dependent on eurodollars, but I'm not sure how that relationship will shake out. Their economy might be so big and so vital that we're forced to prop them up. If not, China's banking system will go tits up, too.

The question then becomes, is the fed willing and able to meet global liquidity demands? And beyond this, how do they force PDBs to keep printing eurodollars and continue to assume risk, risk which may violate their fiduciary obligation to shareholders? Trillion-dollar question.

So, what does all this mean? Who can we short? Honestly, this is hard to say. Personally, I have september puts on BAC for $18, and I'm still looking for anyone else who might be vulnerable. Any of the PDBs with accounts at the fed might be at risk. I'm going to start hunting for SE Asian, African, and South American banks that've been taking repo money. Those are likely to be the most probable to fail. On top of that, as banks start dropping like flies and the global economy tanks, the USD is going to fucking *moon*. That's a worthwhile bet, too. The issue here is that the repo market is anonymous, so it's hard to follow the money. If anyone has any recommendations for specific banks or lending groups to target or look into more, please feel free to let me know.

If the global banking industry started to fail, though, look for it to hit full swing later this year. This is going to be driven by large amounts of defaults that will be spurred by the manufacturing disruptions, the extent of which won't be fully felt until at least midway through this year. Add a few months for missed loan payments, and I'm wagering that you'll see banks start really failing by August or September.

There's a lot here I'm going to continue to research, and if there's anything I've gotten wrong or anything you'd like to add, please speak up and correct me/educate me.

Special thanks to:
u/Psicopro, u/farisbuellerRULES, u/FlexMcgooch, u/meritorius_demotion, and every other fucking angel who answered my stupid goddamn questions and let me bounce ideas off of them
This is a good sub, guys; embrace cooperation and weaponize your collective autism

Edit: For further reading, check out Jeff Snider. He's a macro economist who's been shrieking about this for years.

Edit 2: thanks for the positive responses and the awards, guys! Please, let me know if you find anything related to these repo market participants, either in the comments or (preferably) in a DM. I'll either update this post or write an updated DD. Cheers.

Edit 3: list of vulnerable recommended banks from the comments - Bank of East Asia, HDB, IBN (both in India) - keep em coming, guys

Edit 4: this blew up even more than I expected. I'm likely going to repost this over the weekend with more information and more citations, and I'm considering the possibility of opening up a google doc to aggregate research into vulnerable banks. Hit me up in my chat if you've got relevant information on this, or if you'd like to talk about the possibility of collaborating. I'm not sure how risky it would be to pool research like this, but I'm fascinated by the idea of crowdsourcing the work to identify the weak points in the international banking system.

2019.09.26 11:30 weilim Trump Didn’t Kill the Global Trade System. He Split It in Two.

This article is taken from the Wall Street Journal written about nine months ago and sits behind a a paywall, so I decided to copy and paste it here. This article explains Trump's policies toward global trade and what has actually happened so far. I think the article does a decent job of explaining the Trade War. While alot has happenedsince the article was written, I still think its relevant.
However, what is lacking in the article, like many articles on the trade war, is it doesn't really explain the history of US trade policy, the laws that the US administration is using to place tariffs on China and the official justification for the US President in enacting tariffs against China. In my analysis I will cover those points.

SUMMARY

When Trump entered the White House people feared he would dismantle the global system the US and its allies had built over the last 75 years, but he hasn't. He has realign into two systems. One between the US and its allies which looks similar to the one built since the 1980s with a few of quota and tariffs. As the article points out
Today, Korus and Nafta have been replaced by updated agreements(one not yet ratified) that look much like the originals. South Korea accepted quotas on steel. Mexico and Canada agreed to higher wages, North American content requirements and quotas for autos. Furthermore, the article points out Douglas Irwin, an economist and trade historian at Dartmouth College, calls these results the “status quo with Trumpian tweaks: a little more managed trade sprinkled about for favored industries. It’s not good, but it’s not the destruction of the system.” Mr. Trump’s actions so far affect only 12% of U.S. imports, according to Chad Bown of the Peterson Institute for International Economics. In 1984, 21% of imports were covered by similar restraints, many imposed by Mr. Reagan, such as on cars, steel, motorcycles and clothing. Protectionist instincts go so far in the US, there are strong lobby groups for both protectionist and freetrade in the US.
The second reflects a emerging rivalry between the US and China. Undo some of the integration that followed China accession to the WTO. Two questions 1) How far is the US willing to decouple with China 2) Can it persuade allies to join.
The second is going to be difficult because China's economic ties are greater than they were between the Soviets, and China isn't waging an ideological struggle. Trump lacks Reagan commitment to alliance and free trade. The status quo with China is crumbling Dan Sullivan, a Republican senator from Alaska, personifies these broader forces reshaping the U.S. approach to the world. When Mr. Xi visited the U.S. in 2015, Mr. Sullivan urged his colleagues to pay more attention to China’s rise. On the Senate floor, he quoted the political scientist Graham Allison: “War between the U.S. and China is more likely than recognized at the moment.” Last spring, Mr. Sullivan went to China and met officials including Vice President Wang Qishan. They seemed to think tensions with the U.S. will fade after Mr. Trump leaves the scene, Mr. Sullivan recalled. “I just said, ‘You are completely misreading this.’” The mistrust, he told them, is bipartisan, and will outlast Mr. Trump. both Bush II and Obama tried to change dialogue and engagement, but by the end of his term, Obama was questioning the approach. Trump has declared engagement. “We don’t like it when our allies steal our ideas either, but it’s a much less dangerous situation,” said Derek Scissors, a China expert at the American Enterprise Institute whose views align with the administration’s more hawkish officials. “We’re not worried about the war-fighting capability of Japan and Korea because they’re our friends.”
The article also points out unlike George Kennan in 1946 who made a case for containing the Soviet Union, the US hasn't explicitly made a case for containing the Soviets, Trump's administration hasn't, because as the the article explains its divided Michael Pillsbury a Hudson Institute scholar close to the Trump team, see 3 scenarios
Pillsbury thinks the third is most likely to happen, even though the administration hasn't said that it has adopted that policy. The US is stepping efforts to draw in other trading partners. The US, EU and Japan have launched a WTO effort to crack down on domestic subsidies and technology transfers requirement. US and Domestic concerns with prompted some countries to restrict Huawei. The US is also seeking to walloff China from other trade deals. However, there are risk with this strategy

ARTICLE

Trump Didn’t Kill the Global Trade System. He Split It in Two.

INTRODUCTION

My main criticism of this article is it tries like the vast majority of articles to fit US trade actions in the larger context of US geopolitical strategy. Even the author isn't certain "The first goes to the heart of Mr. Trump’s goal. If his aim is to hold back China’s advance, economists predict he will fail.". If you try to treat the trade "war" and US geopolitical strategy toward China as one, you will find yourself quickly frustrated and confused. If you treat them separately with their different set of stakeholders and histories, were they intersect with regards to China, but diverge. During the Cold War, trade policy toward the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc was subordinated to geopolitical concerns. For Trump, the trade issues are more important than geopolitical strategy. His protectionist trade rhetoric has been fairly consistent since 1980s. In his administration, the top cabinet members holding economic portfolios, those of Commerce, Treasury and US Trade Representative are the same people he picked when he first took office. The Director of the Economic Council has changed hands once, its role isn't as important as the National Security Advisor. While State, Defense, CIA, Homeland Security, UN Ambassador, National Security Advisor have changed hands at least once. Only the Director of National Intelligence hasn't changed.
International Trade makes up 1/4 of the US economy, and like national security its primarily the responsibility of the Federal government. States in the US don't implement their own tariffs. If you add the impact of Treasury policy and how it relates to capital flows in and out of the US, the amounts easily exceed the size of the US economy. Furthermore, because of US Dollar role as the reserve currency and US control of over global system the impact of Treasury are global. Trade policy and investment flows runs through two federal departments Commerce and Treasury and for trade also USTR. Defense spending makes up 3.3% of GDP, and if you add in related homeland security its at most 4%. Why would anyone assume that these two realms be integrated let alone trade policy subordinate to whims of a national security bureaucracy in most instances? With North Korea or Iran, trade and investment subordinate themselves to national security, because to Treasury and Commerce bureaucrats and their affiliated interest groups, Iran and the DPRK are well, economic midgets, but China is a different matter.
The analysis will be divided into four sections. The first will be to provide a brief overview of US trade policy since 1914. The second section will discuss why the US is going after China on trade issues, and why the US has resorted using a bilateral approach as opposed to going through the WTO. The third section we will talk about how relations with China is hashed out in the US.
The reason why I submitted this article, because there aren't many post trying to explain US-China Trade War from a trade perspective. Here is a post titled "What is the Reasons for America's Trade War with China, and not one person mentioned Article 301 or China's WTO Commitments. You get numerous post saying that Huawei is at heart of the trade war. Its fine, but if you don't know what was inside the USTR Investigative report that lead to the tariffs. its like skipping dinner and only having dessert When the US President, Donald J Trump, says he wants to negotiate a better trade deal with other countries, and has been going on about for the last 35 years, longer than many of you have been alive, why do people think that the key issues with China aren't primarily about trade at the moment.

OVERVIEW OF THE UNITED STATES TRADE ORIENTATION

Before 1940s, the US could be categorized as a free market protectionist economy. For many this may seem like oxymoron, how can an economy be free market and protectionist? In 1913, government spending made up about 7.5% of US GDP, in the UK it was 13%, and for Germany 18% (Public Spending in the 20th Century A Global Perspective: Ludger Schuknecht and Vito Tanzi - 2000). UK had virtual zero tariffs, while for manufactured goods in France it was 20%, 13% Germany, 9% Belgium and 4% Netherlands. For raw materials and agricultural products, it was almost zero. In contrast, for the likes of United States, Russia and Japan it was 44%, 84% and 30% respectively. Even though in 1900 United States was an economic powerhouse along with Germany, manufactured exports only made up 30% of exports, and the US government saw tariffs as exclusively a domestic policy matter and didn't see tariffs as something to be negotiated with other nations. The US didn't have the large constituency to push the government for lower tariffs abroad for their exports like in Britain in the 1830-40s (Reluctant Partners: A History of Multilateral Trade Cooperation, 1850-2000).
The Underwood Tariffs Act of 1913 which legislated the income tax, dropped the tariffs to 1850 levels levels.Until 16th amendment was ratified in 1913 making income tax legal, all US federal revenue came from excise and tariffs. In contrast before 1914, about 50% of UK revenue came from income taxes. The reason for US reluctance to introduced income tax was ideological and the United State's relative weak government compared to those in Europe. After the First World War, the US introduced the Emergency Tariff Act of 1921, than the Fordney–McCumber Tariff of 1922 followed by a Smoot-Hawley Act of 1930. Contrary to popular opinion, the Smoot-Hawley Act of 1930 had a small negative impact on the economy, since imports and exports played a small part of the US economy, and the tariffs were lower than the average that existed from 1850-1914.
Immediately after the Second World War, when the US economy was the only industrialized economy left standing, the economic focus was on rehabilitation and monetary stability. There was no grandiose and ideological design. Bretton Woods system linked the US dollar to gold to create monetary stability, and to avoid competitive devaluation and tariffs that plagued the world economy after Britain took itself off the gold in 1931. The US$ was the natural choice, because in 1944 2/3 of the world's gold was in the US. One reason why the Marshall Plan was created was to alleviate the chronic deficits Europeans countries had with the US between 1945-50. It was to rebuild their economies so they could start exports good to the US. Even before it was full implemented in 1959, it was already facing problems, the trade surpluses that the US was running in the 1940s, turned to deficits as European and Japanese economies recovered. By 1959, Federal Reserves foreign liabilities had already exceeded its gold reserves. There were fears of a run on the US gold supply and arbitrage. A secondary policy of the Bretton woods system was curbs on capital outflows to reduce speculation on currency pegs, and this had a negative impact on foreign investment until it was abandoned in 1971. It wasn't until the 1980s, where foreign investment recovered to levels prior to 1914. Factoring out the big spike in global oil prices as a result of the OPEC cartel, it most likely wasn't until the mid-1990s that exports as a % of GDP had reached 1914 levels.
Until the 1980s, the US record regarding free trade and markets was mediocre. The impetus to remove trade barriers in Europe after the Second World War was driven by the Europeans themselves. The EEC already had a custom union in 1968, Canada and the US have yet to even discuss implementing one. Even with Canada it took the US over 50 years to get a Free Trade Agreement. NAFTA was inspired by the success of the EEC. NAFTA was very much an elite driven project. If the Americans put the NAFTA to a referendum like the British did with the EEC in the seventies, it most likely wouldn't pass. People often look at segregation in the US South as a political issue, but it was economic issue as well. How could the US preach free trade, when it didn't have free trade in its own country. Segregation was a internal non-tariff barrier. In the first election after the end of the Cold War in 1992, Ross Perot' based most of independent run for the Presidency on opposition to NAFTA. He won 19% of the vote. Like Ross Perot before him, Donald Trump is not the exception in how America has handled tariffs since the founding of the Republic, but more the norm.
The embrace of free trade by the business and political elite can be attributed to two events. After the end of Bretton Woods in 1971, a strong vested interest in the US in the form of multinationals and Wall Street emerged advocating for removal of tariffs and more importantly the removal of restrictions on free flow of capital, whether direct foreign investment in portfolio investment. However, the political class embrace of free trade and capital only really took off after the collapse of the Soviet Union propelled by Cold War triumphalism.
As mentioned by the article, the US is reverting back to a pre-WTO relations with China. As Robert Lighthizer said in speech in 2000
I guess my prescription, really, is to move back to more of a negotiating kind of a settlement. Return to WTO and what it really was meant to be. Something where you have somebody make a decision but have it not be binding.
The US is using financial and legal instruments developed during the Cold War like its extradition treaties (with Canada and Europe), and Section 301. Here is a very good recent article about enforcement commitment that China will make.‘Painful’ enforcement ahead for China if trade war deal is reached with US insisting on unilateral terms
NOTE: It is very difficult to talk about US-China trade war without a basic knowledge of global economic history since 1914. What a lot of people do is politicize or subordinate the economic history to the political. Some commentators think US power was just handed to them after the Second World War, when the US was the only industrialized economy left standing. The dominant position of the US was temporary and in reality its like having 10 tonnes of Gold sitting in your house, it doesn't automatically translate to influence. The US from 1945-1989 was slowly and gradually build her influence in the non-Communist world. For example, US influence in Canada in the 1960s wasn't as strong as it is now. Only 50% of Canadian exports went to the US in 1960s vs 80% at the present moment.

BASIS OF THE US TRADE DISCUSSION WITH CHINA

According to preliminary agreement between China and the US based on unnamed sources in the Wall Street Journal article US, China close in on Trade Deal. In this article it divides the deal in two sections. The first aspects have largely to do with deficits and is political.
As part of a deal, China is pledging to help level the playing field, including speeding up the timetable for removing foreign-ownership limitations on car ventures and reducing tariffs on imported vehicles to below the current auto tariff of 15%. Beijing would also step up purchases of U.S. goods—a tactic designed to appeal to President Trump, who campaigned on closing the bilateral trade deficit with China. One of the sweeteners would be an $18 billion natural-gas purchase from Cheniere Energy Inc., people familiar with the transaction said.
The second part will involve the following.
  1. Commitment Regarding Industrial Policy
  2. Provisions to protect IP
  3. Mechanism which complaints by US companies can be addressed
  4. Bilateral meetings adjudicate disputes. If talks don't produce agreement than US can raise tariffs unilaterally
This grouping of conditions is similar to the points filled under the 301 investigation which serve the basis for initiating the tariffs. I have been reading some sources that say this discussion on this second group of broader issues could only be finalized later
The official justifications for placing the tariffs on Chinese goods is found under the March 2018 investigation submitted by the office of the President to Congress titled FINDINGS OF THE INVESTIGATION INTO CHINA’S ACTS, POLICIES, AND PRACTICES RELATED TO TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, AND INNOVATION UNDER SECTION 301 OF THE TRADE ACT OF 1974. From this investigation the United States Trade Representative (USTR) place US Tariffs on Chinese goods as per Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974. Here is a press release by the USTR listing the reasons for placing tariffs, and the key section from the press release. Specifically, the Section 301 investigation revealed:
In the bigger context of trade relations between US and China, China is not honoring its WTO commitments, and the USTR issued its yearly report to Congress in early February about the status of China compliance with its WTO commitments. The points that served as a basis for applying Section 301, also deviate from her commitments as Clinton's Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky paving the way for a trade war. Barshefsky argues that China's back sliding was happening as early as 2006-07, and believes the trade war could have been avoided has those commitments been enforced by previous administrations.
I will provide a brief overview of WTO membership and China's process of getting into the WTO.
WTO members can be divided into two groups, first are countries that joined in 1995-97, and were members of GATT, than there are the second group that joined after 1997. China joined in 2001. There is an argument that when China joined in 2001, she faced more stringent conditions than other developing countries that joined before, because the vast majority of developing countries were members of GATT, and were admitted to the WTO based on that previous membership in GATT. Here is Brookings Institute article published in 2001 titled "Issues in China’s WTO Accession"
This question is all the more puzzling because the scope and depth of demands placed on entrants into the formal international trading system have increased substantially since the formal conclusion of the Uruguay Round of trade negotiations in 1994, which expanded the agenda considerably by covering many services, agriculture, intellectual property, and certain aspects of foreign direct investment. Since 1994, the international community has added agreements covering information technology, basic telecommunications services, and financial services. WTO membership now entails liberalization of a much broader range of domestic economic activity, including areas that traditionally have been regarded by most countries as among the most sensitive, than was required of countries entering the WTO’s predecessor organization the GATT.
The terms of China’s protocol of accession to the World Trade Organization reflect the developments just described and more. China’s market access commitments are much more far-reaching than those that governed the accession of countries only a decade ago. And, as a condition for membership, China was required to make protocol commitments that substantially exceed those made by any other member of the World Trade Organization, including those that have joined since 1995. The broader and deeper commitments China has made inevitably will entail substantial short-term economic costs.
What are the WTO commitments Barshefsky goes on about? When countries join the WTO, particularly those countries that weren't members of GATT and joined after 1997, they have to work toward fulfilling certain commitments. There are 4 key documents when countries make an accession to WTO membership, the working party report, the accession protocol paper, the goods schedule and service schedule.
In the working party report as part of the conclusion which specifies the commitment of each member country what they will do in areas that aren't compliant with WTO regulations on the date they joined. The problem there is no good enforcement mechanism for other members to force China to comply with these commitments. And WTO punishments are weak.
Here is the commitment paragraph for China
"The Working Party took note of the explanations and statements of China concerning its foreign trade regime, as reflected in this Report. The Working Party took note of the commitments given by China in relation to certain specific matters which are reproduced in paragraphs 18-19, 22-23, 35-36, 40, 42, 46-47, 49, 60, 62, 64, 68, 70, 73, 75, 78-79, 83-84, 86, 91-93, 96, 100-103, 107, 111, 115-117, 119-120, 122-123, 126-132, 136, 138, 140, 143, 145, 146, 148, 152, 154, 157, 162, 165, 167-168, 170-174, 177-178, 180, 182, 184-185, 187, 190-197, 199-200, 203-207, 210, 212-213, 215, 217, 222-223, 225, 227-228, 231-235, 238, 240-242, 252, 256, 259, 263, 265, 270, 275, 284, 286, 288, 291, 292, 296, 299, 302, 304-305, 307-310, 312-318, 320, 322, 331-334, 336, 339 and 341 of this Report and noted that these commitments are incorporated in paragraph 1.2 of the Draft Protocol. "
This is a tool by the WTO that list all the WTO commitment of each country in the working paper. In the goods and service schedule they have commitments for particular sectors. Here is the a press release by the WTO in September 2001, after successfully concluding talks for accession, and brief summary of key areas in which China hasn't fulfilled her commitments. Most of the commitments made by China were made to address its legacy as a non-market economy and involvement of state owned enterprises. In my opinion, I think the US government and investors grew increasingly frustrated with China, after 2007 not just because of China's back sliding, but relative to other countries who joined after 1997 like Vietnam, another non-market Leninist dictatorship. When comparing China's commitments to the WTO its best to compare her progress with those that joined after 1997, which were mostly ex-Soviet Republics.
NOTE: The Chinese media have for two decades compared any time the US has talked about China's currency manipulation or any other issue as a pretext for imposing tariffs on China to the Plaza Accords. I am very sure people will raise it here. My criticism of this view is fourfold. First, the US targeted not just Japan, but France, Britain and the UK as well. Secondly, the causes of the Japan lost decade were due largely to internal factors. Thirdly, Japan, UK, Britain and France in the 1980s, the Yuan isn't undervalued today. Lastly, in the USTR investigation, its China's practices that are the concern, not so much the trade deficit.

REASONS FOR TRUMPS UNILATERAL APPROACH

I feel that people shouldn't dismiss Trump's unilateral approach toward China for several reasons.
  1. The multilateral approach won't work in many issues such as the trade deficit, commercial espionage and intellectual property, because US and her allies have different interest with regard to these issues. Germany and Japan and trade surpluses with China, while the US runs a deficit. In order to reach a consensus means the West has to compromise among themselves, and the end result if the type of toothless resolutions you commonly find in ASEAN regarding the SCS. Does America want to "compromise" its interest to appease a politician like Justin Trudeau? Not to mention opposition from domestic interest. TPP was opposed by both Clinton and Trump during the election.
  2. You can't launch a geopolitical front against China using a newly formed trade block like the TPP. Some of the existing TPP members are in economic groups with China, like Malaysia and Australia.
  3. China has joined a multitude of international bodies, and at least in trade, these bodies haven't changed its behavior.
  4. Dealing with China, its a no win situation whether you use a tough multilateral / unilateral approach. If the US endorse a tough unilateral approach gives the impression that the US is acting like the British during the Opium War. If you take a concerted Western approach you are accused of acting like the 8 Powers Alliance in 1900.
  5. Trump was elected to deal with China which he and his supporters believe was responsible for the loss of millions manufacturing jobs when China joined the WTO in 2001. It is estimate the US lost 6 Million jobs, about 1/4 of US manufacturing Jobs. This has been subsequently advanced by some economists. The ball got rolling when Bill Clinton decided to grant China Most Favored Nation status in 1999, just a decade after Tiananmen.
  6. China hasn't dealt with issues like IP protection, market access, subsidies to state own companies and state funded industrial spying.
To his credit, Trump has said his aim was not to overthrow authoritarian governments, and that even applies to the likes of Iran. The Arab spring scared Russia and China, because the US for a brief moment placed the spread of democracy over its security interest.

UNDERSTANDING HOW THE US MAKES DECISIONS REGARDING CHINA

At this moment, China or the trade war isn't an area of great concern for the American public, among international issues it ranks lower than international terrorism, North Korea and Iran's nuclear program.
According to the survey, 39 percent of the country views China’s growing power as a “critical threat” to Americans. That ranked it only eighth among 12 potential threats listed and placed China well behind the perceived threats from international terrorism (66 percent), North Korea’s nuclear program (59 percent) and Iran’s nuclear program (52 percent). It’s also considerably lower than when the same question was asked during the 1990s, when more than half of those polled listed China as a critical threat. That broadly tracks with a recent poll from the Pew Research Center that found concern about U.S.-China economic issues had decreased since 2012.
In looking at how US conducts relations foreign policy with China, we should look at it from the three areas of most concern - economic, national security and ideology. Each sphere has their interest groups, and sometimes groups can occupy two spheres at once. Security experts are concerned with some aspects of China's economic actions like IP theft and industrial policy (China 2025), because they are related to security. In these sphere there are your hawks and dove. And each sphere is dominated by certain interest groups. That is why US policy toward China can often appear contradictory. You have Trump want to reduce the trade deficit, but security experts advocating for restrictions on dual use technology who are buttressed by people who want export restrictions on China, as a way of getting market access.
Right now the economic concerns are most dominant, and the hawks seem to dominate. The economic hawks traditionally have been domestic manufacturing companies and economic nationalist. In reality the hawks aren't dominant, but the groups like US Companies with large investment in China and Wall Street are no longer defending China, and some have turned hawkish against China. These US companies are the main conduit in which China's lobby Congress, since China only spends 50% of what Taiwan spends lobbying Congress.
THE ANGLO SAXON WORLD AND CHINA
I don't think many Chinese even those that speak English, have a good understanding Anglo-Saxon society mindset. Anglo Saxons countries, whether US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland are commerce driven society governed by sanctity of contracts. The English great philosophical contributions to Western philosophy have primarily to do with economics and politics like Adam Smith, John Locke, David Hume and Thomas Hobbes. This contrast with the French and Germans. Politics in the UK and to a lesser extent the US, is centered around economics, while in Mainland Europe its religion. When the Americans revolted against the British Empire in 1776, the initial source of the grievances were taxes.
Outside of East Asia, the rest of the World's relationship with China was largely commercial, and for United States, being an Anglosaxon country, even more so. In Southeast Asia, Chinese aren't known for high culture, but for trade and commerce. Outside Vietnam, most of Chinese loans words in Southeast Asian languages involve either food or money. The influence is akin to Yiddish in English.
Some people point to the Mao and Nixon meeting as great strategic breakthrough and symbol of what great power politics should look like. The reality is that the Mao-Nixon meeting was an anomaly in the long history of relations with China and the West. Much of China-Western relations over the last 500 years was conducted by multitudes of nameless Chinese and Western traders. The period from 1949-1979 was the only period were strategic concerns triumphed trade, because China had little to offer except instability and revolution. Even in this period, China's attempt to spread revolution in Southeast Asia was a threat to Western investments and corporate interest in the region. During the nadir of both the Qing Dynasty and Republican period, China was still engaged in its traditional commercial role. Throughout much of history of their relations with China, the goals of Britain and the United States were primarily economic,
IMAGINE JUST 10% OF CHINA BOUGHT MY PRODUCT
From the beginning, the allure of China to Western businesses and traders has been its sheer size I. One of the points that the USTR mentions is lack of market access for US companies operating in China, while Chinese companies face much less restrictions operating in the US.
This is supported by remarks by Henry Paulson and Charlene Barshefsky. As Paulson remarked
Trade with China has hurt some American workers. And they have expressed their grievances at the ballot box.
So while many attribute this shift to the Trump Administration, I do not. What we are now seeing will likely endure for some time within the American policy establishment. China is viewed—by a growing consensus—not just as a strategic challenge to the United States but as a country whose rise has come at America’s expense. In this environment, it would be helpful if the US-China relationship had more advocates. That it does not reflects another failure:
In large part because China has been slow to open its economy since it joined the WTO, the American business community has turned from advocate to skeptic and even opponent of past US policies toward China. American business doesn’t want a tariff war but it does want a more aggressive approach from our government. How can it be that those who know China best, work there, do business there, make money there, and have advocated for productive relations in the past, are among those now arguing for more confrontation? The answer lies in the story of stalled competition policy, and the slow pace of opening, over nearly two decades. This has discouraged and fragmented the American business community. And it has reinforced the negative attitudinal shift among our political and expert classes. In short, even though many American businesses continue to prosper in China, a growing number of firms have given up hope that the playing field will ever be level. Some have accepted the Faustian bargain of maximizing today’s earnings per share while operating under restrictions that jeopardize their future competitiveness. But that doesn’t mean they’re happy about it. Nor does it mean they aren’t acutely aware of the risks — or thinking harder than ever before about how to diversify their risks away from, and beyond, China.
What is interesting about Paulson's speech is he spend only one sentence about displaced US workers, and a whole paragraph about US business operating in China. While Kissinger writes books about China, how much does he contribute to both Democrats and the Republicans during the election cycle? China is increasingly makING it more difficult for US companies operating and those exporting products to China.

2019.01.05 17:03 scumteam14 [Misc] The updated sunscreen wiki page! Discussion thread for feedback, questions, and experiences

Hey guys!
We hope you had a wonderful New Years and that your 2019 is off to a kick-ass start :)
To start off the new year, we’re giving a much needed update to the sunscreen wiki! This is part of the big sidebar update - each week a new wiki page will go live and we’ll have a discussion post like this one to go over the research, talk about the ingredient, and give feedback on the wiki page! Click here if you want to check out the post schedule :)
Some general advice: don't go on a shopping spree and buy a ton of new sunscreens! Do introduce products 2 weeks apart and patch test before you use it on your whole face.
As you may have guessed the sunscreen wiki is pretty big, so let’s jump right in!
Edit - updated sunscreen wiki links
 

Sunscreen (click here!)

General information

We recommend wearing a sunscreen with SPF of 30+ with high UVA protection every day, in order to protect your skin from sun damage. If you're using products that make your skin more sensitive to the sun, like AHAs, retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, or certain oral medications, it's even more important to wear sunscreen!
 
Effects
Sunscreen has the following benefits:1
  • Reduces the risk of skin cancer
  • Prevents hyperpigmentation
  • Protects against signs of photodamage (fine lines, etc.)
  • Prevents burns
Check out Guides and information and Sun protection measurements for more in-depth overviews on sunscreen!
 
How to use
We recommend applying either a thick layer of sunscreen, or two thinner layers which may result in better protection as you'll use more product.2, 3 Not using enough product means you won't get the labeled SPF! Make sure to apply your product BEFORE getting sun exposure.
Don't rub your product into your skin, but try to distribute it evenly and then leave it alone. Often forgotten areas on your face include: the area around your eyebrows, your nose and nose wings, and your chin.
If you'll be in direct sunlight for extended periods of time, or the UV index is particularly nasty, use a product with higher protection or add another layer of product before going out. Reapply sunscreen after swimming, sweating, or towelling off. Remember to use other UV protection methods on sunny days, such as wearing hats, sunglasses, and seeking shade!
Apply sunscreen at the end of your AM skincare routine. If you use makeup, let the sunscreen dry completely before using any makeup products.
  • Cleanser > Moisturizer > Sunscreen > Primer, Makeup, etc.
You can also use an SPF moisturizer in place of a sunscreen, just be sure to treat it like a sunscreen! Look for SPF 30+, good UVA protection, and apply it like you would a sunscreen.
To remove sunscreen, your regular cleanser will usually be fine. If you've cleansed your face and it still feels a bit slimy or you feel there's leftover product, you may need an additional first cleanse like an oil cleanse, a makeup remover, or cleansing balm. Most non-waterproof sunscreens don’t need a first cleanser, although waterproof and some stubborn non-waterproof sunscreens might! Check out the cleanser wiki for product recommendations
If you have dark skin, avoid sunscreens with high percentages of physical filters (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) as they'll lend a white cast to your skin. Chemical sunscreens are your best bet.
If you have sensitive skin, you may prefer to look for an all physical sunscreen or a physical/chemical combination sunscreen - chemical filters may cause stinging and irritation for some people.

Sun protection measurements
UVB
You probably know all about this one - UVB causes redness, burns, skin cancer, and photoaging.
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) indicates how much a sunscreen protects from UVB radiation, measured by how red your skin gets. Say that normally, your skin would get red after 2 minutes in the sun. In ideal circumstances, when you use a sunscreen with SPF 30, you could be in the sun for 30 times longer before it gets red - so 60 minutes. That’s not to say you’re fully protected from UV rays - for instance, SPF 30 lets through 3.3% and SPF 60 lets through 1.7% - but SPF 30+ is pretty dang good!
However, that’s just the way SPF is measured. Real life conditions will be impacted by the UV index, clouds, and water or snow. Maybe one sunny day at the beach you’d normally get red after 2 minutes, but on another day it might be 30. So don’t take the method of figuring out SPF to heart - that’s how scientists measure it, but that’s not how it plays out in real life! Just know that you should be looking for SPF 30+.
Other factors that impact real-life SPF include application method (how much is applied and how even it is), sweat, sunscreen rubbing off due to clothes, phones, or hands, etc. So if you’ll be out in the sun for extended periods or the UV index is particularly high, it’s best to use sunscreen with a higher SPF and reapply more frequently than you normally would!
UVA
Besides UVB radiation, we're also exposed to UVA, which contributes to skin cancer and photoaging. And while UVB is responsible for most sunburns, UVA can also cause burning and redness.4 Unfortunately, SPF doesn’t cover UVA. So how do you know what sunscreens give proper UVA protection? Well, that turns out to be a bit complicated; it's different all over the world.
Here is an overview of the most common indicators of UVA protection (aka UVAPF):
  • "Broad spectrum" (US) - there's a certain amount of UVA protection, but unfortunately this says little about how much. (However, having this on the label is better than nothing)
  • "Broad spectrum" (Australia) - UVA protection is at least 1/3rd of UVB protection. E.g. a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 will have a UVAPF of at least 10
  • UVA seal (EU) - UVA protection is at least 1/3rd of UVB protection
  • PPD - Persistent Pigment Darkening (L'Oreal and others). Tests how well sunscreen protects from getting tan. A PPD of 5 should mean you can stay in the sun 5 times longer than you normally would, similar to how SPF works. Look for sunscreens with at least a PPD of 8 - the higher, the better!
  • PA rating (Japan) - measures amount of UVA protection, from PA+ to PA++++. PA relates to PPD like so:
    • PA+ = PPD 2-4
    • PA++ = PPD 4-8
    • PA+++ = PPD 8-16
    • PA++++ = PPD16+ (not used everywhere)
    PA+++ or higher is a good choice!
  • Boots star rating (UK, Ireland) - measures the ratio of UVA to UVB protection (SPF):
    • 3 stars = 0.6 - 0.8
    • 4 stars = 0.8 - 0.9
    • 5 stars = 0.9 and up
    E.g. a sunscreen with SPF 30 and 5 stars will have a UVAPF of at least 30 x 0.9 = 27.
    We recommend using an SPF 30 sunscreen with at least three stars

Background:

In September 2009 Charlie created a YouTube channel called Charlies Vlogs that had him post acoustic covers along with parody videos. He gained a large following, and in December 2010 he released an independent EP titled The Otto Tunes. In 2011 he won an online Paris Hilton singing competition called Can You Sing?From here he was signed to Ellen Degeneres' label eleveneleven. After repeatedly performing on her show from 2011-2013, he left her label. In 2014 he co-wrote Pitbull's Celebrate that was used in the movie The Penguins of Madagascar. He was signed to Atlantic, and shortly released the song Marvin Gaye. From here you all kind of know what happens, he releases See You Again for Furious 7 and is #1 on Billboard Hot 100 for 12 weeks. He gets 3 Grammy noms, and is also nominated for a Golden Globe. He released his debut album Nine Track Mind to some mixed reviews. However, commercially it was very successful and has gone platinum in the United States. Popheads fucking hated it though and Charlie was the equivalent of the devil 'round these parts. All of that changed once he released Attention.

Lead Up:

Honestly the lead up to releasing Voicenotes was messy as hell. On April 21, 2017 Charlie released the lead single to Voicenotes. People fucking loved it. Three days later he released the video. Charlie did extensive promo for the song, appearing on numerous talkshows and even having his own snapchat filter lol. The song was a top 5 hit on the Hot 100, and singlehandedly had people doing a 180 on him. On June 30, 2017 he announced the title of his upcoming album to be Voicenotes with a release date to be soon. Basically 4 months later, on October 5, 2017 he released the second single How Long, with the announcement that the album would be releasing on January 19, 2018. Just two weeks before release, Charlie tweeted that he wasn't happy with the album and would be pushing back the release date. As a consolation, two days later he released the promo single If You Leave Me Now with Boyz II Men. On March 15 he released the fourth song from the album; Done for Me featuring Kehlani. Nine days later Charlie performed an unreleased song titled Change at the March For Our Lives event. Two days later, on March 26, 2018 Charlie officially released the song Change with James Taylor. On April 14, just under a month before release, Charlie tweeted that he was changing the album cover. He changed it from this to this. The new album cover honestly fits the aesthetic and theme of the album way better, but he changed it so late that all physical CD's still have the old cover. One week before release, Charlie released one more promo single titled The Way I Am. Finally, after releasing 6/13 songs, Charlie finally released his sophomore album on May 11, 2018.

Tracks:

The Way I Am
Released as a promo single before the album, and a real single in July, The Way I Am peaked at 61 on the Billboard Hot 100. Charlie has openly talked about his dislike for his debut album Nine Track Mind. He felt people thought he was some sort of cookie-cutter pop star, with no talent or personality. In the album opener, Charlie debuts his new sound. Encapsulating the sound of late 1980's R&B, while remaining fresh with a 2018 sound, we instantly see that this is going to be different than his previous works. In an interview with Genius, Charlie cites Eminem as an pseudo inspiration for this song. He recalled a story about how when Eminem created The Marshall Mathers LP, Jimmy Iovine said there wasn't anything single worthy on the album to purposefully get Eminem riled up and angry. Eminem then went and recorded The Way I Am, and it was the lead single to The Marshall Matthews LP. Charlie says you can hear Eminems true personality in that song, and is what inspired him to make this song. You can hear Charlie's true personality, telling everyone that "I'ma tell 'em all / I'ma tell 'em all that you could either hate me or love me / But that's just the way I am". Charlie doesn't care what you think of him anymore, he tried that in the Nine Track Mind era and is over it. He doesn't care if you hate this new him, but it's the TRUE him so get used to it. On July 9 he released the official music video. It is Charlie alone in random spots in a home, while everyone around him mosts in fast motion. The video is reminiscent of a late '90s/early 2000's video you'd see on MTV, coupled with a guitar riff that's super similar to Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal, this is an incredibly strong album opener.
Attention
The lead single from the album, Attention peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. Originally released on April 21, 2017, the song infuses pop with funk and soul elements. Three days after release, Charlie dropped the music video. It pretty closely follows the lyrics of the song, and is essentially Charlie just brooding in different places as he realizes the girl is using him for attention. The lyrics tell the story of a girl using Charlie for attention. In Genius lyrics notes Charlie talks about how he would hangout with this girl in public, and she'd invite him to sleep over just for her to go to sleep right away. This happened time and time again; until he realized what she was doing. He broke it off with her, just for her to go to parties and talk about how poorly he treated her. The music industry is fairly small, so it didn't take long for that news to make it back to Charlie. Even after "using" him in a relationship, she was still managing to use him afterwards. All of this is told over a walking bass line that will uptown funk you up. Also, I don't know how to naturally fit this in but Charlie pauses the song entirely to sigh at 2:41, just to kick it into overdrive and back into the chorus and it's honestly so amazing.
LA Girls
The first "deep-cut" of the album. Charlie wrote the song in one take on the piano. He was in the shower and heard the melody in his head, and right after went right to the piano. Continuing from the theme in Attention, Charlie sings about the troubles of dating LA girls. There's nothing wrong with girls in the song, but they're not the one for him. He misses the girl he dumped back when he was in New Jersey, where he grew up. Sonically, all of this is done over a "sneaky" sounding bass beat. The bridge to this song is arguably the best on the album. It's literally just Charlie saying "one, two, three" and then saying "ooh" in different variations, but it is just so fun to sing along to.
How Long
Peaking at #21 on the Billboard Hot 100, the second single from Voicenotes debuted on October 25, 2017. How Long is another bass heavy song. Although the song is in a C# minor, it was originally in an E-flat minor. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest the day the song came out, Charlie heavily implied this song is about the same girl the lead single Attention was about. Mostly from the girls point of view this time, the song talks about Charlie cheating on her. In the verses it discusses how Charlie was drunk and cheated, but it was only once. It then goes into the chorus, which has the girl saying back to him that Charlie has been shady and asking the titular question; How Long? A couple weeks after releasing the song, Charlie released the official music video. The video is honestly kind of wild? I'd love to be able to say it's about the girl and Charlie fighting. Maybe it cuts between shots of Charlie cheating, and the ensuing fight that this song is about. However, I can not tell you that's what happens in the video. Instead, the video shows Charlie kind of strutting through an office building and dancing, leading up to him walking up walls and on air. Honestly, Lionel Richie remains unbothered.
Done For Me
Done For Me is the third, and final, instalment of Attenion/How Long trilogy. Charlie said that he had been wanting to collaborate with Kehlani ever since they covered Drake's Hotline Bling in 2015. A big theme of this album is that the songs were written after attending "unsuccessful" LA parties. This song is no exception to that. Playing with his keyboard after a party one night, Charlie came up with the beat to this song. Written in a B minor chord, the song is reminiscent of Wham! After playing around with the song for a bit, he knew that Kehlani was who he wanted on this song with him. Peaking at only #53, the song finishes the storyline with Charlie and the girl (now sung by Kehlani) on an equal playing field. They're both proclaiming the things they've done for one another; Charlie saying he gave up everything for her, and Kehlani saying she didn't cheat and gave up everything for him as well. While still funky, the song is plays strongly to a synth sound to make it like an anthem. The video for the song was released on April 21, 2018. Shot using a 4:3 aspect ratio (maybe? I forget what this is called), the aesthetic for this video is pure 80's bliss. Using dull lighting with bright colours, it has Charlie singing in a really cool room of mirrors, and both of them singing in a club or on a bed. With Kehlani there's a lot of lesbian stuff, so y'all gotta stan an LGBT friendly video.
Patient
Charlie eventually slows it down for the first time this album. Patient is a simple arrangement with Charlie singing over a basic keyboard, and light percussion. He starts the song with the simple word "sorry" at 7 second into it. It's barely there and if you aren't aware it's there, you won't notice it. After all the hookups, fights, and cheating in the previous songs Charlie has his apology song. He is out here apologizing for all the mistakes he's made. He's acknowledging he was kind of a dick in the past, but he's asking her to be patient with him. Funny enough, someone on Charlie's team was not patient in releasing the song. Patient released before the album released, along with a full on music video for it. The music video is impossible to find now, trust me I just tried for ages. If you find it hit up my DM's with it. However, I'll admit I did watch it when released. It involves Charlie singing outside, and playing a keyboard. It is another love letter to the 80's, and ends with him outside the girls window. I would write more about it, but I don't remember much lol this happened in March. There is this screencap from it though, and that's about all I can find aside from the popheads leak thread and random other leak threads from places like atrl.
If You Leave Me Now
Remember how I said Charlie slowed it down in Patient? Well, we go even slower here. As an apology to fans for delaying the album, Charlie released If You Leave Me Now in January of this year. An interpolation of *NSYNC's I Thought She Knew (rated a 5.915 average in the popheads rate it was in), the song goes purely a cappella. I'll be honest, I personally wasn't thrilled when I heard Boyz II Men were being featured on the song. I mean, it's 2018 after all. However, the song is pure 90's R&B bliss. The song pays homage to Chicago's If You Leave Me Now, by slightly changing the chorus from "If you leave me now, you'll take the biggest part of me" to "If you leave me now / if you're giving up and just walk right out / you will take the biggest part of me". Upon first listen I actually gave this song a lot of shit, but it's now my 15th all time most scrobbled song lol. It's honestly just so pure, simple, and beautiful.
BOY
After If You Leave Me Now, the album possibly couldn't get any slower. We get a little boppier for the next song. Boy was regarded as popheads favourite song on the album upon release. Funnily enough, it is also Charlie's favourite song on the album as revealed in this tweet. The song tells a story of Charlie chasing an older woman, but her rejecting him for his age. Recently Charlie has stated that the story in this song is completely made up. Heavy on the keyboard, Charlie tweeted the notes to the chorus and solo in the bridge
Slow It Down
One of my personal favourites on the album, Slow It Down does the opposite of the title. The song interpolates Hall & Oats I Can't Go For That (No Can Do), which honestly someone make up a quality post about Hall & Oats because they are so fucking lit and everyone stream their discography now. Oddly, the entire song BOY is about how he's annoyed this older women wont accept him for his age. In Slow It Down, one song later, Charlie says the line "She's Only 23" and does basically what he's mad the women in BOY does, to this girl. Anyways, Slow It Down is like the least relatable song I've ever heard because I do not have girls throwing themselves at me (@ ladies I'm single), yet it bops so hard I don't even care about that.
Change
Change features James Taylor, and was dedicated to the Parkland school shooting victims. Kind of a kumbaya folk anthem, Charlie first premiered the song at the March for Our Lives event in Washington, D.C. The song is honestly the lowpoint of the album, but the sentiment is nice and in 2018 America can't be said enough. It sounds more like a forgotten 70's James Taylor song, as opposed to anything Charlie has put out. That being said, James Taylor is an icon so that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's wild to me Charlie was even able to get him as a feature, but James Taylors brother taught him at Berklee College of Music so that is very likely why. I have no qualms with this song; it's just wildly out of place on the album, and should have been a one-off single instead.
Somebody Told Me
Charlie described the song as "a bunch of kids driving in a convertible to Malibu", and honestly that's pretty accurate. Although, he also did describe it as sounding like a Sting song, and he lost me there because I don't hear that. The song is the fastest on the album, and makes you just want to dance. It doesn't have a throbbing beat like How Long or Attention, but the song makes you want to move and have fun. Somebody Told Me follows the trend of cheating, and relationship issues, and tells the story of somebody telling Charlie that his girlfriend was out seen with somebody else. The Killers do remain unbothered by this, but this does give it a run for it's money.
Empty Cups
Ok, if you haven't listened to Empty Cups yet please do that NOW. We go back to a heavy bass beat on the song, and in the best way possible. It's very rare that the "wordiest" part of the song, is the chorus itself. Empty Cups tells the story of Charlie being at a party, and trying to woo a girl despite her having a boyfriend. It's honestly lyrically a little Gorgeous by Taylor Swift. I don't have a ton to say about the song, other than just urging you to listen to it because words can't do it justice.
Through It All
Charlie ends the album on what may be my favourite song on the album. While not a huge anthem, party bop, or fist pumping banger, it gets the job done. Through It All is a ballad that gives the aesthetic of closing down the bar at the end of the night. You listen and it feels like an old style pub closing down, then walking down the street late at night and walking past neon signs as you stumble home. I'm not the type of person to be all "omg aesthetic" but omg aesthetic. After listening to the entire album, we just heard of all the cheating and drama Charlie has gone through. Through It All puts a nice little bow on the album, and has Charlie essentially say "yep, I've been through a lot". Through It All was supposed to be what the entire album sounded like, but due to Attention's success he completely changed the sound of everything.

Overall

The album was titled Voicenotes as Charlie creates most of his songs by creating voicenotes on his phone as ideas come to him. The end of the Attention music video has the voicenote for Attention. Charlie also tweeted the voicenote for The Way I Am here. Heavy on keyboard and bass, there is a constant funk to record. There is overall a consistent 80's vibe to the whole album, but Charlie takes inspiration from songs from all era's to create the record. There is a sonic cohesiveness, and everything apart from change feels connected to one another. Also, after all of this I would love to point out that

Charlie wrote and produced the entire album

Every single song Charlie was the head writer, and also the head (and often sole) producer.

The Tour

On December 18, 2017 Charlie announced the Voicenotes Tour in this tweet. It would feature future EGOT winner Hailee Steinfeld as the opening act, and have 33 stops in North America (an Asian leg was later announced and just wrapped up last week). On the tour Charlie performed the entirety of Voicenotes, apart from If You Leave Me Now and Through It All, along with the singles from Nine Track Mind. The Voicenotes Tour was the 17th Annual Honda Civic Tour, which has had acts such as OneRepublic, Demi Lovato, and One Direction as the headliners in recent years. For it Charlie designed a car that was at every concert, and you could win it? That whole part seemed pretty weird to be honest. I don't even imagine a ton of Charlie Puth stans can even drive so idk. His August 8 show in St. Paul, MN was live streamed by Live Nation but I don't think you can watch it anymore lol.

Personal Notes

So normally a nice album review would have ended right here. However, since I am unable of being serious at any point of my life, I figured I'd add a little personal section of my experience with the tour. There's nothing super exciting, but I figured I'd add it in. This is also super unrelated to the album though, so you can stop here if you just wanted a review and not to hear about how I got drunk. So I went to Shawn Mendes Illuminate tour with some friends, and Charlie Puth was the opener. After the concert we just talked about how lit Charlie was live. Jump to six months later, and the Voicenotes tour is announced. Charlie wasn't coming to where I lived, but those same friends hit up the group chat and asked if we wanted to go on a road trip to see him. So in August we go on the 8 hour road trip, across borders to the states, to see Charlie and Hailee in concert. We rented an airbnb and it said it was walking distance to the arena, but it was like a 20 minute drive away lol. Also it was straight up in the ghetto; like, scared we were going to get murdered area of town. This doesn't stop us though, so we went to some bar down the street for dinner but it was trivia night so we stayed. They heard we were from Canada and gave us a bunch of free drinks and bar shirts and stuff. Then the night comes, and the girls are getting ready beforehand, but I'm just going in the shirt I slept in the night before because I am a gross male. Well, I got grossly drunk because I had nothing to do but drink while I waited. We get in the uber (that my friend left her lipstick in), and get to the arena. My friends were kind of annoying during Hailee, but she bopped hard no matter WHAT they said. Charlie came out and man, he was so fucking good. The talent OOZED. At one point I left to get a drink but they were so fucking expensive? I paid like $25 for a drink, wtf America. So I got one drink, and downed it real quick. At this point I had to puke though, so I go do that real quick and make it back in time for We Don't Talk Anymore. The concert was super fun, and so good. I was kind of annoyed he didn't play Through It All, and played Change instead, but this is a red state I was in so fuck it they needed to hear this. After this we walk down this strip looking for a bar to go to, but everything is closed? It was a Thursday night in the summer after a concert, and all the bars close by were closed by 11 pm? Well, there was this one Canadian themed bar that was open late, so we HAD to go there. We go and crush some American poutine and wings. My friend tried hitting on Charlie in insta DM's, which I didn't know until after. We uber back to the airbnb, and I crash on the couch like asap and two of my other friends went to sleep right away, and the other two stayed up and ended up puking. Overall it was a fun night! The next morning we drove back to Canada though and that was not fun at all.

Discussion

  1. What's your favourite song on Voicenotes?
  2. As he was typically disliked on this subreddit pre-Voicenotes, did this album make you do a 180° on Charlie, or does he still have more to prove?
  3. Do y'all think this album, or any songs from it, stand a chance of being nominated for the Grammys in a few days?
  4. Do you agree with the single choices that were made this era?
  5. Why do we not talk about Charlie's origin story of being a YouTuber who won a Paris Hilton singing competition, leading to Ellen signing him to a label, where he was able to write a Pitbull song for a Madagascar movie?
Thank you so much for reading this if you did! I'm not great at writing, or making valid opinions on music that don't reach further than saying "this bops", so I really do appreciate it if you read the whole thing. A weird side note, but today is actually Charlies birthday. I can guarantee this wasn't scheduled on purpose, but let's pretend it was. Tune in tomorrow for followingfreeways writeup for Shawn Mendes, which is also a super lit album y'all should stream if you haven't. You can read yesterdays writeup for Bloom here. Also keep your eyes peeled for another cool announcement coming from me in just 2 days!!
tldr: voicenotes good

2018.04.29 01:21 SubsaharanAmerican Online dating While Minority? You're gonna have a bad time, part 3: Black and Asian men with a college degree are excluded more than Whites without; Asian women are more responsive to White men than to Asian men (Lin & Lundquist, 2013)

Same ol' same ol'. Although this one adds an additional layer of granularity with the education dimension.

Mate Selection in Cyberspace: The Intersection of Race, Gender, and Education

Ken-Hou Lin and Jennifer Lundquist
American Journal of Sociology
Vol. 119, No. 1 (July 2013), pp. 183-215
DOI: 10.1086/673129 Stable URL: http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086/673129
Abstract
In this article, the authors examine how race, gender, and education jointly shape interaction among heterosexual Internet daters. They find that racial homophily dominates mate-searching behavior for both men and women. A racial hierarchy emerges in the reciprocating process. Women respond only to men of similar or more dominant racial status, while nonblack men respond to all but black women. Significantly, the authors find that education does not mediate the observed racial preferences among white men and white women. White men and white women with a college degree are more likely to contact and to respond to white daters without a college degree than they are to black daters with a college degree.

Predicted odds ratios of sending an initial message (darker cells represent higher probabilities).

https://i.imgur.com/S8l5Tq9.png
The left matrix of figure 1 presents the sending pattern of female users. Within each matrix, the darker the shading in the cell, the more likely the sender ðleftÞ is to send a message to the receiver ðtopÞ. Looking first at Asian women, we see that they are most likely to send initial messages to Asian men followed by white men and least likely to message Hispanic and black men. Black women show the highest levels of homophily. They rarely message white, Asian, and Hispanic men. Hispanic women are also most likely to message their coethnics, though the tendency is not as strong as it is for black women. Hispanic women’s second preference is white men, and they rarely initiate contact with Asian or black men. Finally, white women most prefer white men, their second preference is Hispanic men, and they rarely send initial messages to other minority men. Stated from the men’s perspective, white men have the best odds of being contacted by women even if all racial groups are equally represented on the dating website, largely because they are among the top choice groups for Asian, Hispanic, and white women. Asian and black men, on the other hand, receive messages only from their coethnics.
[...] black women, who receive the lion’s share of their messages from blackmen, a tiny amount from Latino men, and practically no messages from either Asian or white men. Asian and white women, on the other hand, consistently receive messages from all men, both inside and outside their ethnic group.
Women in general send messages only to their coethnics or to white men, and men, while appearing to cross some ethnic boundaries with relative fluidity, draw the line at black women.
[T]hese results show that the reason black men receive more messages than Asian men in table 2 is not that black men are more popular in general but that black women have greater homophily tendency than Asian women. Overall, our results contradict the popular belief that black men prefer white women over black women and white men prefer Asian women over white women. Black men in fact demonstrate the strongest homophily tendency among male daters.

Predicted odds ratios of responding to an initial message (darker cells represent higher probabilities).

https://i.imgur.com/xjddcWh.png
Looking first at the responses of Asian women, it becomes clear that, when given a choice, Asian women are most likely to respond to white men, followed by Asian men. They are less likely to respond to Hispanic men or black men. Black women, by contrast, respond to daters who contact them fairly equally, with a preference for white men. The responding behavior of Hispanic women is comparable to that of Asian women. They are most responsive to white men, followed by their coethnics, and least responsive to black men. White women’s reciprocal behaviors look little different from their sending behaviors. They respond predominantly to white men. In brief, black men are least likely to receive responses from anyone except black women, Hispanic and Asian men are somewhere in the middle, and white men enjoy the highest likelihood of response.
Messages from white men and women are likely to be reciprocated by daters of other groups, but white women reciprocate only to white men. Black daters, particularly black women, tend to be ignored when they contact nonblack groups, even though they do not discriminate against any out-groups.

Predicted probability of sending an initial message, white daters

https://i.imgur.com/g26kwH9.png
Figure 3 shows the predicted likelihoods that white daters with and without a college degree contact each of the racial and educational subgroups. The results show that, regardless of their own educational level, white women are still more likely to contact white men than any other group. College-educated white women even prefer non-college-educated white men over college-educated Asian men. White men show similar preferences as we saw in the previous sending models. Black women, with or without a college degree, are marginalized as the least contacted group.

Predicted probability of responding to an initial message, white daters

https://i.imgur.com/ihWjEYV.png
When it comes to response patterns, as shown in figure 4, we again see persistent racial preference. White women are more likely to respond, overall, to men with a college degree than to men without; however, this behavior does not break the constraints of race. White women respond most often to white men above all other ethnicities. College-educated white women treat college-educated minority men similarly to those without a college degree. This tendency to privilege a man’s whiteness over his achieved status is even more pronounced among non-college-educated women, who are even more likely to respond to white men’s messages regardless of their level of education.

Discussion

White men’s and women’s messages are likely to be reciprocated by daters of other groups, but white women reciprocate mostly only to white men. Black daters, particularly black women, tend to be ignored when they contact nonblack groups, even though they respond to out-groups no less frequently. Asian and Hispanic daters seem to be at the middle of the racial hierarchy. They are responsive to whites, their coethnics, and to some extent each other but not to black daters. Importantly, we find that education does not mediate the observed racial preferences among white men and women. White men and women with a college degree prefer to contact and reciprocate to white daters without a college degree over black daters with a college degree.
While some attitudinal surveys suggest that women have more liberal attitudes toward interracial relationships (Johnson and Marini 1998; Meier et al. 2009), our results are consistent with studies of stated preferences (Feliciano et al. 2009; Robnett and Feliciano 2011) and studies of online interaction (Hitsch et al. 2010b; Skopek et al. 2011), indicating that men, in fact, are more willing than women to date out-groups. We are hesitant, however, to conclude that men are less race conscious than women, given that men and women confront a differing terrain of demand and supply in the dating market. On the basis of the fact that women receive many more messages than men and that there are more men than women populating dating websites, men may simply be less able to be as selective as women can.
Though college-educated daters in general receive more unsolicited messages than their non-college-educated counterparts, white men without a college degree still receive more messages than college-educated black and Asian men. College-educated black women receive fewer messages than other women of any education level. Furthermore, we find that, for white male and female daters, race of potential daters has a far greater effect than education does in predicting an online interaction. White men and women with a college degree are more likely to contact and reciprocate to white daters without a college degree over black daters with a college degree.
Our study suggests that the racial preferences of minorities are likely to be as consequential in generating the observed patterns. For example, gendered racial formation theory attributes the prevalence of Asian women–white men pairing to white men’s preference toward stereotypically submissive women. Yet we do not find that white men show particular preference for Asian women. Instead it is Asian women who are more responsive to white men.

Methodology

Unnamed online dating service with the following features:
We obtained the data from one of the largest U.S. dating and social networking websites, which facilitates both heterosexual and same-sex dating for millions of active users. Similarly to most dating websites, registered users can create a personal profile, search and view other users’ profiles, and contact fellow users through a website-based messaging system. A typical user profile contains basic information such as sex, sexual orientation, geographical location, age, race, height, body type, religion, language, lifestyle, and socioeconomic status, as well as photographs and short essays. Unlike most large dating websites that charge a membership fee to contact other users, this website places no restriction on searching, viewing, sending, and responding to messages, which, we believe, makes this website one of the best data sources for studying online dating behaviors in the United States. It should also be noted that this website does not recommend potential matches by ethnic-racial status. The only criteria used to select which profiles to display are age, sexual orientation, and the matching score that is derived from personality questions.
The original data set consists of approximately 9 million registered users worldwide and 200 million messages, from November 2003 to October 2010. In essence, the data set consists of numerous social networks in which the users are nodes with various attributes and the messages are directional ties that connect nodes. However, in contrast to typical social network data, both our nodes and ties have a temporal property: each user has a definite lifetime and each tie is formed at a specific time point.

Sample Description and Inclusion criteria

  • Final sample: 528,800 heterosexual men and 405,021 heterosexual women
  • Racial/ethnic categorization based on user self-identification
Sample Exclusion process:
To facilitate the analysis, we filter the users in four steps. First, we limit our scope to users who reside in the 20 largest metropolitan areas in the United States. This facilitates the reconstruction of opportunity structure ðdiscussed belowÞ and brings down the sample size to about 3 million daters. Second, we exclude users who did not send or receive at least one message, who did not upload at least one photograph, who listed their birth year later than 1992 or earlier than 1911, or who fit the profile of spammer users. The reason is that, similarly to most free membership websites, some of the users did not actively engage with or even return to the website after initial registration and a few users are likely to be fake identities created by spammers. We thus retain only genuine dating website members, that is, users who had the opportunity to legitimately interact with other users in the data set. Third, we exclude daters who were looking only for casual sex or platonic relationships to ensure that the patterns observed among the daters reflect the mate selection process. Finally, we exclude from the analysis in this article users who identified as gay or bisexual, a population we explore in a separate paper.

Model overview:

Since interaction decisions are nested within individuals (i in the sending model and j in the responding model), a dependence structure is expected. We thus model both the sending and the responding behaviors by fitting a series of generalized estimating equations ðGEEs; Liang and Zeger 1986; Hanley et al. 2003; Zuur et al. 2009Þ with the logit link function and an exchangeable correlation structure.
There are advantages to analyzing our data with the GEE approach. First, the GEE approach addresses dependency among observations and optimizes the statistical power of the correlated data by estimating clustered correlations. In contrast to mixed effects or hierarchical models, the GEE approach makes little demand of within-cluster variance and thus is more suitable in our situation in which the participation of the users follows a power-law distribution and a significant number of our observations are singletons. We believe that exclusion of the singletons would create serious selection bias and therefore do not think that the random intercept approach is suitable for our analysis.

2018.04.06 14:11 vernazza u/vernazza's unnecessarily long guide to Budapest

Free 30+ page travel guide about Budapest, Hungary and bits of Central Europe. Enjoy!
Information correct as of summer 2020. If you find anything incorrect or would like to make requests, suggestions (or just want to say hi), please do that here! You should also drop by in /budapest to see past questions and to get advice from multiple people.
I would also greatly appreciate your post-trip feedbacks about whether my recommendations worked out for you or not! Restaurants, clubs can undergo radical changes and it's not always possible to keep track of every single one.
The local charity I support is the Hungarian Food Bank Association. For every €1 donated they are able to save €30 worth of perishable food and have it reach underprivileged Hungarian families. If you find this guide useful, please consider donating to them!
Some links use URL-shorteners, so I could track how many of you are using this guide. Nothing fishy waiting for you behind them.
See my suggestions in the comments below about:
===CORONA RESTRICTIONS===
The situation is subject to change momentarily, this information is current as of September 2020. Eastern Europe as a whole has largely been spared from the worst of it, including Hungary, and the risk of transmission is low.
Presently foreigners are banned from entry altogether. Exceptions are in place for people with ties to the country (family members, studies, work, those holding residence permits), and people transiting by car on designated highways.
The situation will be revised monthly, with experts saying the second peak is expected for December-January.
In the country, you need to wear a mask on public transport, inside shops, malls, cinemas, museums. You don't need to wear them inside restaurants, cafes, bars, but they must close by 23.00. Social distancing rules are in place, but largely ignored.
===END OF CORONA RESTRICTIONS===
Hungary has a continental climate with 4 seasons. Summer is the main season, a slightly less busy time to visit is April to mid-June and September to October, but the weather is less predictable. Those uncomfortable with 30+C (>85F) temperatures should visit around then as 35+C (>95F) is not uncommon in the summer. November through March has -5 to 10 (20-50F) and possibly gloomier weather – but fewer tourists.
Currency: the Hungarian Forint (HUF, Ft). Fair exchange rates for Euros is around 330-335Fts, for US Dollars around 300. Only use currency exchanges where the buy/sell spread isn't greater than 5-6Fts for these two currencies!
Citizens of 62 countries do not require a visa to enter the Schengen Area and can stay for maximum 90 days within a rolling 180-day window. See here if you don’t know what that entails. EU member countries that are not members of the Schengen Area are Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania, and the United Kingdom, visits to these do not count toward your 90 days. Non-EU countries part of the Schengen Area are Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland, visits to these do count toward the cap.
Because we both know you want to do your own research, use:
See the city in 4K, or with Rick Steves.
However nothing beats having a physical guidebook in your hand! Lonely Planet has the best and most recent issue.
Read up on the concept of coconut and peach cultures, as sometimes the reserved and distant behaviour of locals can be misinterpreted by ‘peach’ visitors as rudeness – nope!
This is a comprehensive itinerary, but leaves out the best museum of the city: the House of Terror, a solemn museum of the Nazi and Soviet occupation and crackdowns (get the audio guide or be prepared to peruse dozens of pamphlets). There's an attendance limit, so you might need to wait up to 30-45 minutes to get in when it's the busiest. When you are around Deák Ferenc tér, drop by in the Tourinform office (Sütő utca 2., the small street near the church) to stock up on free maps, printed guides of the city. WeLoveBudapest prints a comprehensive and free one every year around June.
I suggest 4 full days to discover Budapest, or 3 faster paced ones. Make it 5-7 if you'd like to make a few daytrips (Szentendre - open-air ethnographic museum, cobblestoned, quaint center, Esztergom - Central Europe's largest cathedral and religious center, Visegrád - medieval castle, Eger - medieval castle and wine region). Most of Hungary’s highlights can be visited in 2 weeks. For more details on countryside and international trips, see my comment below.
Meal times and habits are typical to central Europe: breakfast is usually done at home, not much of a culture of eating out in the morning. But a large number of new wave breakfast places have popped up in the past years, which offer ample opportunities for visitors, normally from 8am. Lunch is at midday, after 1pm most places are going to be fairly empty and many will stop serving lunch after 2pm. The standard time for dinner is 7pm, bookings for later than 8pm are unusual. Lots of restaurant kitchens close at 10pm (with the restaurant following suit 30-60 minutes later), finding a meal after that hour is challenging for anything other than street food.
Baths
Gellért is the most aesthetic, Széchenyi the largest and most popular among foreigners (Sparty can get crazy with lots of drinking, puking and sex going on in the pools, but it is wildly overpriced and 100% aimed at visitors). Rudas is a Turkish hamam with swimwear optional, single-gender weekdays (women-only on Tuesdays, coed and swimwear-mandatory on the weekend). Lukács is plain and personally I’m not a fan of it – tourists only visit it because it’s included free with the Budapest Card. For more details on the baths, see this.
For off the beaten path sights, ride the D11 or D12 public boat lines for a cheap alternative to paid cruises (travelcards only valid on weekdays, otherwise 700Ft), check out the Pinball Museum, Hospital in the Rock or check out this section for a lot more off the beaten path ideas.
Shopping
Hungary has the world’s highest effective VAT (=sales tax) at 27%. Non-EU/EEA tourists are eligible for VAT refund on their qualifying purchases if they complete the paperwork (min. €175 value per transaction, passport+reclaim form stamped by customs official).
The most popular and best accessible mall of the city is WestEnd on Nyugati tér. Arena Plaza is larger by floor area and carries a couple brands that can’t be found elsewhere, but is less centrally located (10min walk from Keleti train station). Don’t expect to find bargains on clothing or electronics, prices are similar to Western Europe and over North American or Asian ones.
For more information on shopping and VAT refund, see here.
Paprika Market is a decent souvenir shop in the sea of overpriced, terrible quality crap on Váci utca.
Magma Gallery for contemporary and affordable jewelry, ceramics and home decor items by local designers is just one street over on Petőfi Sándor utca.
Check out the antique bookstores alongside Múzeum körút between Astoria and Kálvin tér, some have Socialist-era posters available for sale from 30€ and up, that could be a unique gift/home decor to take home. Ecseri road flea market for more antiques, go early on Saturdays.
Hungarian cuisine is hearty and filling, with a heavy use of meats. Must-try foods are:
For authentic recipes, recommendations for recipe blogs or cookbooks, tips for cooking traditional Hungarian meals, see here
For edible souvenirs to bring home with you:
Grocery stores include Spar, Tesco, Aldi and Lidl. Avoid CBA and Coop, low quality for high prices. Small convenience stores, many 24/7, also dot the city at higher prices.
The most popular and best accessible mall of the city is WestEnd on Nyugati tér.
Alcohol is sold at every one, but some (mostly residential) districts enact a ban on the sale between 22.00-06.00. The central Pest districts don’t have such limitations in place.
Tobacco is sold at tobacconists (‘nemzeti dohánybolt’ ). These shops are also exempt from the evening alcohol sale ban if you find yourself in such a district. Flavored cigarettes are banned in Hungary, so no Black Devils or Sobranies.
Budgets (per person)
For reasonable comforts, I would suggest aiming for at least €50 per day excluding accommodation. Hotel prices significantly vary in and outside high season.
Getting around
Do not buy the Budapest Card, it is not a bargain, even if every travel blogger seems to think otherwise! You would need to visit at least 3-4 museums a day to break even and the free visit to the pretty plain Lukács Baths could mean you’d deny yourself going to the much more interesting mainstream alternatives, such as Gellért or Széchenyi. The discounted museums are second-rate and typically not what most visitors choose to hit up on their own.
Do buy a public transport travelcard, the 1, 3 or 5-day unlimited options require no validation or ID (common reasons for fines). For week-long stays, the 7-day travelcard needs an ID number and that you have the document on you at all times. Please do not try to get around by using single tickets!
The travelcards are economical (from €5/24h to €15/week) and easy to use: no validation, you just show it to the controllers. Validity starts immediately by default, or you can select a later starting date (always from midnight). 7-day and monthly passes require an ID/passport number, and you must have the ID on you whenever you travel, otherwise you risk getting fined! Groups of 4 or more can also buy the even more economical '24h group travelcard', but all persons must travel together using that.
Common reasons for fines
Ticket inspectors (must have an anonymized badge and armband) are notoriously brash, speak subpar English. Paying on the spot lets them give you a discounted fine of 8000 instead of the regular 16000 through postal order or wire transfer, they aren't looking to scam you if they offer you that. Fines are pursued internationally through collection agencies, multiplying the original amount once their fees are added.
Cheapest way to get to the city from the airport is by public transport. I suggest paying the 900Ft supplementary ticket for the 100E bus. The southern portion of the M3 subway is under reconstruction, during that period the 200E buses go beyond their usual terminus, Kőbánya-Kispest and take you to Nagyvárad tér station, where the subway runs from. The purple ticket machines at the airport and all over the city take chipped cards. Shuttle bus is a good compromise between price and comfort and depart when full or close to.
Ignore touts walking up to you offering cabs in the arrival hall, use the official Főtaxi booth immediately outside the building. Rates are centralized: flagfall 700Ft, 300Ft/km, 75Ft/min waiting. The fair price to the centre is around 7-9.000Fts. Rides inside the centre are typically under 3.000. All taxi companies have passable reputations with a few horror stories about each, Főtaxi (+36-1-222-2222), 6x6 Taxi (+36-1-666-6666), City Taxi (+36-1-211-1111) are a few. There are some stories of even company cab drivers trying to rip off naive-looking tourists, especially around train and bus stations, so consider legal Uber-alternative Taxify/Bolt (Android, iOS). Uber is banned.
Most companies have apps, but they have terrible design and might set an unchangeable pick up location 5-10 minutes away from you. It’s much better to order by phone, they have English-speaking operators. If you must use an app, choose Taxify.
Scams
Cabbies are the only ones eclipsing the ticket inspectors in notoriety. I cannot emphasize enough: DO NOT USE THE ONES WITH ‘FREELANCER’ ON THE FRONT DOORS!!! These drivers are nicknamed 'hyenas', work independently, they always have rigged meters and are known to sometimes assault customers who don’t comply with their ridiculous demands. If you hail on the street, be absolutely certain you’re getting into a company cab (logo on the front doors).
A known scam by the hyenas, fraudsters and illegal street exchangers is giving you worthless currencies with similarly high denominations as the Forint – namely the Indonesian Rupiah or the old Belarusian Ruble.
Bag handlers at the airport steal from unsecured luggage. Never put any valuables in your checked luggage!
Overly friendly, attractive women approaching you in broad daylight 'to practice their English' and taking you to scammy cafés where you'll be charged €300 for a bottle of bottom-shelf champagne are also to be avoided. Recently a Redditor reported the same happening to him through Tinder, so be very suspicious of anyone insistent on going to a particular establishment. The scam café was Hajós Café on Hajós utca. Another known scam location is Café Fidelité on Révay utca.
Otherwise general safety cautions should be exercised: watch your valuables in crowded spaces for pickpockets, be wary of overly friendly strangers approaching you and introducing the idea of going to a club or bar by their 5th sentence or of people pretending to be authority.
Policemen typically wear dark blue uniforms and white shirts , sometimes with a visibility vest and can be identified by the numbered metal badges on their chest and their separate police ID card which you can ask to inspect before complying with their orders. Scammers use fake police IDs to part you with your cash under the guise of inspecting the notes for counterfeits. Always ask to see it first: this is real, this is fake – notice where the real one has a serial number, the fake says POLICE. If the issue is anything halfway serious, ask to be escorted to the nearest police station – it will scare away scammers playing dress up.
The emergency number is 112 for police, ambulance or firefighters, there are English-speaking operators (works throughout the EU).
If you get pickpocketed, notify both the police and in case of losing your travel documents, your embassy. Thieves are usually courteous enough to leave papers near trash bins, so walk around in the neighbourhood to see if you can recover them. If you find someone else’s, hand in to the nearest police station.
Getting around
the city is easy, Budapest has one of the best public transport systems of the continent. Use Google Maps for orientation and getting around! Tickets and passes with rates are listed here.
All EU/EEA citizens aged 65+ travel for free on all Hungarian public transport, including trains, distance buses. Picture ID and administrative 0 Ft ticket required. Age 65 is not included.
Student discounts are available to full-time students in EU/EEA countries with a valid student ID. If it doesn’t have it, also carry a picture ID. EU citizenship not required, you only need to study there full-time (not applicable for exchange students unless they get ID issued). The monthly student pass (3450) is cheaper than the 72h travel card (4150) for identical benefits.
The 4 subway lines are coded by numbers and, unofficially, colour (1-yellow, 2-red, 3-blue, 4-green). The busiest, M3, is under renovation until 2021, but remains in partial operation, see details here. The entire line shuts down after 8pm and all day on weekends (replacement buses operate), and one section of the line is always out of service. For 2019 it’s the southern segment, between Kőbánya-Kispest and Nagyvárad tér. During this time the 200E airport bus will take you to the more central Nagyvárad tér stop (from where the subway runs) instead of its regular terminus of Kőbánya.
In Budapest driving is not recommended for the perpetual lack of parking spaces, congestion and because there's really no need to. If you must arrive by car, pick a hotel with parking, use the free parking lot at Kelenföld subway station, street-parking by StarPark at Podmaniczky utca at ~€8/24h, or opt for a more central location (such as one of CarE Park’s garages ) at ~20€/24h, €100/week and do not use it for getting around in the city. Public areas are metered in the entire centre, typically charging 1.5€/h with a cap of 3 hours on a ticket.
The Bubi city bike system is available for anyone’s use. The rates are very favourable (500Ft for 1-day, 1000 for 3 for the pass), but a deposit of €80 will be docked when you register and might take a few weeks to release. First 30 minutes are free, after it's 500Ft/30min on top of the daily pass' price.
Two e-car sharing systems compete in Budapest. I suggest using MOL Limo, as you can complete your licence verification remotely (do it before arrival, they might take a day or three if they are backlogged). Despite the name, the cars are tiny, automatic VW up!s, the majority electric and all automatic. Age limit 18, min. 1-year old national licence, foreign ones accepted, €20 registration fee and €0.25/min rate. Coverage includes basically every area of note to tourists in the centre, except the Castle and underground garages (as well as the airport). Expansion is planned for the future. You cannot park (leave the car) outside the coverage area, but you can drive through.
Sightseeing
The best rated tour bus company is Big Bus, Giraffe (aka. the red Hop On Hop Off ones) tends to get mixed-to-negative reviews. Segway tours also available.
Free thematic walking tours of the city depart in front of the lion fountain on Vörösmarty tér daily. A tip of 2000-2500Ft/person suggested, but they're are chill about it, you can give less if you're on a budget.
River cruises run during the day and the evening, including dinner (usually not great, save for one) or party in the latter case. The most popular is Legenda, partiers choose Boat Party.
One standout cruise is Pannónia Gastro Boat that goes above and beyond the standard quality of service of other operations and often host guest chefs from innovative countryside restaurants.
Public transport alternative is the D11 or D12 boat lines between Boráros tér going up to Népfürdő utca (or getting off at Jászai Mari tér or Margaret island 1 or 2 stops prior). Tram 2 between Jászai Mari tér and Boráros tér hugs the Danube on the Pest side and loops around the Parliament for a similarly nice experience. Seasonal operations, normally from March through October.
Money
The currency of Hungary is the Hungarian Forint (1EUR=330HUF, 1USD=300HUF in November 2019), but I’ve listed prices in Euros (€). Check for current rates here.
Don't exchange Forints at home, bring USD/EUGBP in cash or a chipped card with you – the withdrawal fee is far smaller than what you’d lose by the atrocious rates available to you at home (exception: neighbouring countries).
With cards, Visa, Mastercard are best, Maestro acceptable. Avoid Amex, Diners Club and other uncommon non-European issues.
CAD/AUD/JPY/CNY will be exchanged at slightly worse rates, but still much better than if you’d exchange Forints at home. I don't recommend bringing currencies other than the ones I've mentioned and those from neighboring countries, but if you do, Tichi Change exchanges almost every valid currency in the world at as good of a rate as you could realistically hope for.
When the ATM asks you if you want to be charged in your home currency, say no and opt for Forints or you'll lose up to 30% due to the poor conversion rate! Learn more about the rip-off of dynamic currency conversion here and steer clear of the ATMs operated by Euronet. Besides the dynamic currency conversion ripoff, they will also prompt you to withdraw ridiculously high amounts of money (equivalent of $500 or more) that you will not be able to spend in 3-4 days.
Don't exchange any money with bright orange Interchange they use ripoff rates (>30% spread). They hava e monopoly at the airport and are also present throughout the city in premium locations, such as Váci utca. Street exchange is illegal and a good way to get scammed.
Tons of fine currency exchanges around the city, the best USD and EUR rates are at Gold Change but use your eyes: the buy/sell spread shouldn’t be more than 1-3% apart for these, or 2.5-5% at banks. Exchange offices and banks do not take cards! You may only use them for ATM withdrawals.
Phones
Make sure to bring an unlocked phone, ideally a dual-SIM one.
The 3 main carriers are Vodafone, Telekom (T-Mobile) and Telenor. The best prepaid package is Telekom's Domino Fix with the 1/3/30-day unlimited 4G add-on, costing 990+9900Fts (€32) for the 30-day option. SIM cards need to be activated after purchase, so buy them at brand stores where help is available instead of supermarkets or gas stations.
Roaming fees within the EU have been abolished in 2017, you will be able to use your SIM in any EU member country, but not as if it would be local. I.e. a Vodafone Hungary-issued SIM will be roaming on Vodafone Austria’s network. Some 'reasonable' data caps remain in place, which are determined by the cost of your service.
Outside the EU there are punitive data rates. I once managed to rack up a $90 bill for 5MB by accident.
Sleep
Rates are for high season (late April through September, Christmas, NYE), might be 50+% lower on other dates
Location: if you plan on sleeping, the party district (VII., inside the ring road) should be avoided, as well as VIII. outside of it and around Keleti train station for safety reasons/because you can get nicer digs elsewhere. An under the radar gem of an area is VII. between Múzeum körút and the ring road. Buda is nowhere as dead as tourists collectively imagine it to be (especially around Széll Kálmán tér), don’t shun it if you find someplace nice there.
Eat at
For more detailed restaurant recommendations, see this comment. August visitors, check the restaurants' websites and Facebook to see if they aren't on holiday!
The quality of service is a common source of complaints, don't take it too hard if it happens to you. Tip is 10% most of the time, unless you’re really dissatisfied or find yourself absolutely elated. Many top end restaurants add a ~12% service charge to the bill, tipping on top of that is not expected, though naturally it will be appreciated.
Neither regular, nor ost fast food restaurants do refills. The only exceptions are all KFCs and a few Burger Kings.
Smoking is banned at all restaurants, bars and basically every facility open to the public. Designated smoking areas can be found outside on the street.
Try pálinka (~40% ABV fruit brandy), Unicum (herbal bitteaperitif, like Jäger), bikavér from Eger and Szekszárd (lit. ‘bull’s blood’, a full-bodied red), Tokaji aszú (similar to white Port, made of hand-picked berries with noble rot, named the "wine of kings, king of wines" from the 18th century) or fröccs (spritzer, white or red wine mixed with seltzer – a lifesaver in the summer)!
More details in the shopping section.
Or get really local and ask for ’fény’, carbonated vodka foam over raspberry syrup. You’ll see the fény (=light) at the end of the tunnel in no time!
Eat a freshly fried lángos at market halls (acceptable toppings: sour cream, garlic, cheese, perhaps ham and cabbage - certainly none of that tourist stuff with nutella, Hungarian sausage or kebab...) and fried sausage from a butcher shop such as 1951 establishment Balla Hús in Városház utca or the more contemporary Belvárosi Disznótoros eatery. The gallery of the Hold utca market hall hosts quality street food vendors, Karaván food truck yard right next to Szimpla.
Nightlife

2018.04.06 13:14 axiomatic- r/VFX anonymous wage survey - help needed

UPDATE #001: You can now submit test data here.
Currently it's just the submission forms. The data needs to be cleaned and sorted so that's the next step.
If you have the time please fill out the form as it stands. You can ignore the last page (option questions) that's just a place holder now until I figure out what we should actually do with it.
Feedback is extremely welcome.
UPDATE #002: Thank you so much for the test data so far. This really helps! Now we're working on making the resulting data usable through google spreadsheet so that you can, for example, browse by position and location to see other peoples results and get other relevant statistical data.
UPDATE #003: You can view the spreadsheet of the currently collected data here.
If you play with the filters above you can already see that the data is quite useful. You can easily (for example) click on the filter for Jobs and just view Compositors. Then if you filter by HUB London you'll see only results for London based Compositors.
Right now you still need to calculate the rates yourself (some are weekly, some full year, others are hourly - some USD, some Pounds etc) but already this is better than what you'd likely get statistically in a query on this subreddit where the answers are also likely to be in a mixture of formats.
I'm pretty happy with this start. Next is to create a second google sheet which draws from this one and cleans the data into separated fields. It'll probably be a week or two before I get all that done and have nice little charts all associated with everything.
UPDATE #004: I've added a cleaned data worksheet to the collection sheet (viewable via link in Update #003 above) which now:
  • Makes everything much more human readable by filtering the results so they lose all the 'question' parts of the answers.
  • Normalises all the wages into USD/Hour and USD/Year (more options will be available later but for clean data these are the good ones too have)
  • Prepped the sheet for turning it into pretty graphs, and added filtering so people can just sort through the raw details.
FWIW the average rate is US$46/hour which comes to about US$96,500/year. Test data, but still it's nice to see numbers beginning to role out already.
I still have to clean the OT stuff so it makes a little more sense, and add in estimations for total take home based on the yearly rate but taking into account tax and benefits.
I also want to make sure that we use the answer to the question about "how many weeks you actually charge for" to adjust conversion for non-yearly rates to yearly rates. So if someone charged $1500/day but only works 30 weeks a year, we get a more accurate estimate of their yearly rate. I'm not going to adjust hourly rate in the inverse way though. I don't think that makes sense.
UPDATE #005: I found some big errors in the calculation fields. Essentially we were converting currencies the wrong way so AUD was worth more than USD and GBP were worth less (ummm, i multiplied instead of divided because I was drunk when I wrote the formular).
Also fixed another issue that wasn't doing the currency conversion when calculating non-fulltime wages as Yearly USD.
Both things are now fixed and the % accuracy we're getting is up to about 90% accuracy when comparing our calculated numbers vs. peoples estimates. That's great news.
The accuracy check is actually really, really, really useful. For example, there's two entries since the "Est. Income Per Year" field went in (which allows the accuracy checking) where the people entering had obviously put in the wrong billing period. The accuracy check shows these as really incorrect and I could quickly go on, try a different billing period, and then the new result both times hit >85%. So someone had put Daily instead of Weekly, and another person Monthly instead of Daily. In both cases we could be pretty sure that adjusting their survey result would provide a more accurate picture because they had told us their estimated earnings a year.
On the one hand I don't like the idea of changing peoples survey results ... so I haven't done this. But I can flag it in the cleanup form as an ERROR and either Omit it, or have a field where we correct for errors. I think I'll do the second one. And, of course, we never alter the raw data at all. It's all still there in the original form and in the original ingest sheet.
UPDATE #006: I'm sure people won't be checking this anymore but wanted to keep the notes in case someone does notice.
I've killed a bunch of minor bugs in the formulas, again this is a case of the accuracy check making itself very useful. It looks like some conversions to USDHour and USDYear were not having currency conversion applied. I've now fixed this and a bunch of results are now hitting the 95% accuracy, and some of the test results are now filtering a perfect 100%.
In other news there is big changes to the Search Results worksheet. It's got lots of good stuff in it so you can now simply search by a few key terms and see the average results. This is the major part we're working on right now.
The biggest change though is one no one will probably notice, I switched everything over to arrayFunction() methods on the clean data sheet. This means we don't need to manually update the sheets when new data comes in. Unfortunately it presents some problems for handling erroneous entries, but I'm working on a way to handle this.
Domain name is registered too. So we'll filter all this to it's own website with nice URL soon.
Hey,
So trying to make this thing happen and there's a lot of ways to go about it. I decided I'd dump the questions here (rather than just hide them away in modmail) to see what the community thinks.
This whole thing is super WIP. Categories and grouping and order is all fucked up. But we'll get it there :D
Right now the Survey has the following questions:
About You
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Anything else we need here?
Current Employment
  • Which of these fields are you working in?
    • Feature Film VFX
    • Broadcast VFX (television serial)
    • Commercial VFX
    • AVR
    • Motion Graphics
  • What is the target market of the work you produce?
    • International Distribution (e.g. Hollywood features)
    • Asian Markets (e.g. Bollywood features)
    • European Markets (e.g. European TV or Films)
    • Internet / Everywhere (e.g. Web Series or Online Commercial Work)
    • Other - please fill in.
Current Position and Experience
  • Please select which of these best describes your current role:
    • this is a big list, i'll put it below - basically it's job roles without ranks like senior or junior.
  • If it applies, please rank your position:
    • Intern -> Head of Department listed
    • Also a "None: My job title includes my position (e.g. Executive Producer, Creative Director)
  • How many years experience in your current specific position do you have? (e.g. 3 years as CG Supervisor)
  • How many years experience working in visual effects do you have? (i.e. 12 years in VFX)
How much do you get paid?
  • Please select the country you are working in:
    • annoying large dropdown list of all countries in the world - I wanted to use a map but can't figure that out yet
  • Do you work in any of the following hubs:
    • Vancouver
    • LA
    • NYC
    • Montreal/Qubec
    • London
    • Mumbai
Ok, so the reason for the hub thing is because some countries obviously split up into multiple different hubs, and I want to make sure people can look for hub specific information. But, adding in every city where VFX is done gets crazy tedious and might go out of date fast, so I'm trying to figure out a solid solution for this. I haven't listed countries like Germany, India or Australia/New Zealand, because that information can come from the Country status, I think? This should be for important divisions within a country. So I probably need to identify them better.
And that's where I'm currently up to. I've got a rough plan for actually working out the pay structure which goes something like this:
  • Currency selection
    • limited selection: USD, Pounds, Euros, CAD, AUD right now, I probably should add more for the sake of diversity. Suggestions?
  • Type of employment contract
    • Fulltime Employee
    • Contract Freelancer
    • Part Time
    • Are there important distinctions people think we should make here for the various specialty type of freelancer and contracts? I kind of wanted to somehow split it between rolling contract folks (faux full time) and people who go from show to show at different shops, but not sure how.
  • Select a payment period
    • Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Full Time (flat wage)
  • Specify the amount you make in a payment cycle in selected currency not including OT (e.g. $35/hour, $350/day)
  • Overtime
    • Do you get paid overtime? y/n
    • After how many hours per week does overtime start?
    • What's the overtime rate?
    • I know that OT rules can be complicated but I figured it would be easier to provide some simple guide ... alternatively we could leave it as a Description field.
  • How much overtime do you work on average?
    • None - I go home on time
    • Small amount - 30-40hr weeks normally, 40-50hr during crunch times
    • Medium amount - 40-50hr weeks are common, up to 70hr weeks during crunch, some weekends
    • High amount - 60hrs+ a week is standard, and it gets bat shit crazy during serious crunch
  • How much of the year do you charge for?
    • I think it's easiest to do this as Weeks out of the Year? It's just a way to get closer to some true numbers for freelancers.
  • Tax Rate
    • average tax rate you would pay in this job if working for a standard year - this can be rough as we intend to provide this as additional information
  • Benefits
    • includes allowance for medical, housing, travel etc. Rough number based on your yearly allowance.
So the output of the above should be a simple Rate than can be converted in Daily, Weekly and Yearly. There can also be simple extrapolations for take-home money per year. I intend to make these numbers transparent in the reporting: instead of seeing just one number, you'll see pre tax, post tax, inc. OT, without OT etc.
Is there anything I'm missing to calculate those basic things? Accuracy isn't as important as providing a simple overview for people.
Finally, there's the opportunity to put a little bit of info just about the industry in. I'm not sure if we should do this but we could ask some questions like if people are Pro-Union, if they want to work More or Less OT, if they are happy in their jobs, if they like the city they work in. Stuff like that could be interesting for people viewing the results. Would love to hear peoples thoughts on this.
Here is the list of Job Titles:
  • 3D Generalist
  • Art: Concept Artist
  • Art: Matte Painter
  • Art: Art Director
  • Animation: Character Animation
  • Animation: 2D Animation
  • Animation: 3D Animation
  • Animation: Previz Artist

  • Supervision: Creative Director
  • Technical: Associate Technical Director
  • Technical: R&D
  • Technical: Programmer
  • Technical: Render Wrangler
  • Other: can enter here
This is very rough, first draft. I kind of want to drop a bunch of positions and I need to re-think the categories perhaps. Seems like Paint should be in Compositing and Matchmove in Layout (which would kill plate prep cat) for example.
(this is how you procrastinate from doing QC!)

2018.03.30 16:12 MemeLordZeta Offline Tv Meme Review

Hello everyone, recently I have noticed an uptick in people who don’t understand/fully understand all of the references and old memes that are made. This is great because it means we are growing, but the new people probably feel pretty out of the loop regarding memes. Luckily for them, MemeLordZeta has been memeing from the start and I will be explaining all the past major memes, along with some of the the recent ones. If I miss anything, remind me in the comments. If you have something specific you want to know, comment that too and I’ll add it.
Edit: if you’re trying to find the meanings and uses if twitch emotes I suggest going to my twitch emote guide (unfinished)
—————————————————————
Fastest man alive This Meme refers to Scarra. During offline Tv’s trip to Taiwan, Scarra did a quick jog across the camera view and then seemingly dissapeared into the crowd. Due to this, anytime Scarra (or anyone else, really) runs on stream, you’re bound to see this in chat
Hey Andrew One of the more recent memes on the list, this originated from an irl joast stream when Janet was in LA for a week. Some person on a scooter rode past and loudly said ‘Hey Andrew ’. Anytime someone named Andrew is ever mentioned on stream, chat becomes miles and miles of ‘Hey Andrew’ spam. (I like to take credit for spurring in the meme, I was one of the first three people who started spamming it until others joined in, check the vod)
4x Really just goes to show how time flies by. Probably one of the best known memes, 4x comes from a joast interaction. Toast asked Janet about the derivative of 2x2. Chat told Janet the answer, which was 4x. However, Janet told Toast that the answer was ‘4 times’, mistakenly assuming the x was a multiplication symbol. Now whenever there’s a 4 involved in anything, or Janet does something numericaly ditzy, 4x fills the chat
372 IQ Seen by many to be the counterpart to 4x, this meme originates from toasts channel. During hearthstone’s kobolds and catacombs expansion, blizzard held an in game event called dungeon run, where the player faced off against a series of increasingly difficult bosses, with the 8th one being the hardest. To win, you would have to beat dungeon run as all 9 classes, or you would have to get the farthest out of everyone else. The prize was 10,000$. On toasts official attempt, he got knocked out of the entire event by losing to the third boss. Since the amount of bosses Toast would have needed to defeat to win was 72, chat started to spam 3/72 which then became 372 IQ. This meme is used whenever Toast makes an actually good play and also when he makes mistakes. Its also been used when other offline members have crazy ideas or long winded strats that seem bad.
RAT This is another relatively new meme. It references Temmie. It was first mentioned in multiple places, but the meme became a thing after it was said that wet temmie looked very scraggly and similar to a rat. Temmie’s size reinforced the meme and RAT is now spammed whenever she appears in stream.
Nuoc Mam Mafia This meme was born on Aria’s channel. Aria asked her chat what Vietnamese they knew, to which many replied ‘Nuoc Mam’ ( fish sauce, sounds like Nuke mum). Aria found this funny, but then chat began to hard spam Nuoc Mam in her chat. Aria started breaking down, both from laughter and confusion. She attempted to embrace the meme, welcoming new subs to ‘The Nuoc Mam Mafia, where I am your nuke mom and we drop dank Nuoc memes with my cat Nuoc meow.’ Due to the aquatic nature of the meme, SabaPing often flanks the words Nuoc Mam whenever aria makes an appearance.
T-Dragon Meme born after Toast got his haircut/makeover in LA. The hairdresser gave him a ‘K popish’ haircut, which chat swooned over. After Toast was dressed in some ‘cool’ clothes, chat started calling him T-Dragon, in refrence to k pop star, G-Dragon. The meme is very rarely seen nowadays, but can still be seen sometimes when toast ever takes part in the K pop dances.
300 or we walk Another huge meme, it was born in Taiwan. Chris attempts to bargain with a shopkeep to bring down the the price of a stuffed snorlax, during which he utters the now famous ultimatum, ‘300 or we walk’. Now, whenever chat wants something, it’s often followed by ‘or walk’ in refrence to this (most recent instance of mass use of the meme is in Feds latest stream with his Disney bracket).
scripted/seasons This meme states that everything offline Tv does is according to a script, as if it’s some type of reality show. It’s point of origin can be traced to a tweet by Chris where he says it was a successful season 2 (don’t quote me on that, I’m not sure of the exact text of the tweet). The meme was and still is used by all the members of the house. It was also spurred on by the infamous ‘Offline Tv Season 1 finale ’ Script that someone wrote out. AFAIK, season 1 was from the new year till toasts Taiwan trip. Season 2 was when toast was in Taiwan. Season 3 had the reunion arc which lasted until Janet left. season 4 will start when toast goes to Toronto to “do taxes meetjanet .”
Chris Drinking This great meme has essentially died off but is still seen occasionally. It originated from Chris watching Fed dress as Fedmystra, resulting in Chris pulling a ‘dissapointed father’ and drowning his woes with alcohol. It’s used whenever something ‘disappointing’ occurs or whenever you would imagine alcohol would help.
Underaged/Not eligible Both these phrases reference Jaime and how she’s the youngest out of everyone, which is why she also ‘jailbait’. ‘Not eligible’ was an addition xell made to one of his graphs in refrence to the ‘underaged’ meme. Not eligible is now used in ever graph.
🐸👌😩 This set of emojis is in reference of toasts alleged frog fetish. The frog fetish meme itself arose during toasts time in Taiwan, where toast challenged Janet to a game tournament, with the stakes being janet dressing as froppy (from anime ‘my hero academia) or toasts legs being shaved. Janet agreed but teased toast as to why he wanted such a specific character and accused him of a frog fetish. 🐸👌😩 was commented by toast, and this this is spammed by chat whenever frogs are mentioned.
The Harem God, can you believe that there’s people who don’t remember the harem. Well my new friends, the harem is probably THE most famous meme of offline tv. It started when toast just got with the house. People shipped him with poki and lily. Toast naturally denied this. Kimi then told her stream that she had been ‘busy, what with going to the offline house and dating Toast and all’. Toast asked his chat what the best way to approach a woman was. After this, he played league games with kimi, Janet, poki, and Lily. The harem slowly dissolved as joast took over. (There’s slot of good moments though, I want someone to make a harem compilation)
Hoe Cage As some of you may have guessed, hoe Cage is a mispronunciation of ‘hokage’, a rank of ninja from the anime ‘Naruto’. This meme was born in Fedmyster’s stream, where he would declare to the world that he would become the next Hoe Cage. While the meme is no longer spammed everywhere, it is still used occasionally whenever naruto is mentioned. Surrounding memes to this include Choloruto, the Rasen-gun, and NA ruto. The hoe Cage comes from the esteemed halls of the hidden leak village ( named after the multiple times fed has leaked sensitive info on stream.)
Offlinetv.gg/merch Promo code : Hoe Cage A Chris meme. Chris was adamant about marketing their merch, and as such would insert the store link any time he could. People thought it was hilarious, and would spam the chat at any ‘sellout’ moments with the url. The meme still exists in basically every edited video that gets made.
Let me tell you something about women chat A meme that isn’t used as often anymore, it was started by toast during the harem days, when he would enlighten his chat on the opinions and intricate workings of the female psyche. This can usually be seen in chat after Toast says the phrase, along with CoolStoryBob. Recent use of this meme can be seen in yesterday’s joast fortnite squad game.
Fresh AF This meme refers to toasts fashion sense. It is used whenever Toast shows off his clothes. It is often used to describe toasts classic ‘tags on’ style. The meme originated a bit before toasts makeover, when toast revealed that he never takes tags off anything ‘to show how fresh they are’. Since then, chat makes sure to inquire if toasts item of clothing has tags or not, to the affirmative they spam Fresh AF.
Albert = Xell This meme is a bit unimaginative, but hey I’m not here to judge. Simply put, whenever Albert or Xell does something, it is customary to see atleast a few people switch their names. This is because they’re both Asian with similar haircuts. The meme originated when someone (might have been multiple people at once, not 100%) pointed out all the similarities between the two.
AY This meme, like many, originates from toasts stream. After listening to Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Humble’, toast sang along with the verse break-down, emphasizing every ‘AY’ in the lyrics. As a result, you can see AY being spammed in chat whenever any rap song with ‘Ay’ as a breakdown is being played.
Joast The biggest meme. Just platonic friends. Idk why people ship them. Don’t talk offstream btw. Only friends btw. kappa

2018.03.02 01:07 synapticrelease [Official] - Rule and FAQ Update!

New year new rules and FAQ section!
At least that was the plan! Finally, after much teasing, we are finally ready to roll out with a new and improved ruleset and FAQ guide. Actually, for the most part, the rules are mostly the same and the FAQ has been updated with additional updated information. This will be a thread where you can ask questions and suggest some feedback for us.
However, they are much more clarified and hopefully easier to understand. That was the main intention with this iteration of the new rule and FAQ set.
This was a group effort by everyone (including your feedback) and we hope that this will be the best iteration of the rules to date. There may be minor changes typos, grammar, formatting, and maybe some clarification if this thread points something out. The old rules are still in our rule section for now but it gives you something to compare to in this thread.
Though, we do expect a few tomatoes to be thrown our way
Official Portland Rules and FAQ

What are the rules for posting and commenting in /Portland?

0) The Golden Rule - All submissions should be relevant to Portland or the greater Portland area. Topics of interest about Oregon or national stories with a local connection may be allowed at moderator discretion. Off-topic submissions will be removed.
1) Trolling and Harassment - Be excellent to each other. Don't troll, threaten or otherwise be a nuisance. Endeavor to follow reddiquette in all things - make sure to read this and the Reddit content policy before posting anything.
1.1) Name-calling - Extreme or blatant use of racist, misogynist/misandrist, or homophobic language is strictly not allowed. Usage of slurs is also prohibited.
1.2) Doxing - Posting any personally identifying information about a Reddit user or resident of Portland for the purposes of shaming, witch hunting, or seeking legal action is strictly not allowed. This includes social media of all types (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.). Information regarding notable figures such as politicians and celebrities will be judged for appropriateness on a case by case basis. For example, we would likely remove the personal address of a city commissioner but not a link to a verified Twitter profile.
1.3) Creepshots - Pictures or video of unsuspecting parties may be removed.
1.4) Harassment - Harassment or stalking an /Portland user is strictly not allowed. This can include following users onto subreddits other than /Portland and /AskPortland.
1.5) Violence - Do not post content that encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence or physical harm against an individual or a group of people; likewise, do not post content that glorifies or encourages the abuse of animals. Please refer to Reddit's site-wide policy on the topic. Joking or sarcastic comments about violence may be removed and treated as an actual call for violence.
1.6) Troll accounts - Users who consistently push the limits or otherwise attempt to violate the spirit of /Portland’s rules may have their comments removed and/or be subject to other moderation actions.
2) Spam and Crowdfunding - This includes posting the same type of content repeatedly, content deliberately designed to troll or be offensive (see Rule #1), any kind of SEO nonsense, advertising, items for sale or other commercial content. Exceptions are any public and charity events, some paid events (see below), and other things that are of benefit to the Portland community as a whole. Any abuse of these exceptions may lead to deletion and a possible ban.
2.1) You may not make a post on Portland promoting any paid service or paid product. To advertise on Portland you must go through Reddit's in-house advertising platform at http://www.reddit.com/advertising.
2.2) Can I post about events that cost money to attend? Yes, when it benefits the community discussion. This would include larger concerts, festivals, and shows. Posts will be removed or redirected if it is obvious self-promotion, with money being made from the event by OP. The post should focus on discussion, not sales, and will likely be confined to a megathread. It should also be limited to the greater Portland area, though on rare occasions large events from further away could be approved - the further away, the bigger the event has to be.
2.3) Events that are open to the public, and do not contain corporate sponsorship are welcome to post promotional material here.
2.4) Can I make a post about a charity event? Yes! All charity events are welcome to post promotional material here.
2.5) Crowdfunding links for the purposes of profiting monetarily in a for-profit business or personal way are not allowed.
2.6) Posts asking for participation in surveys, academic studies, or related subreddits will be judged on a case by case basis.
2.7) If you are associated with an event you are posting about then you are required to disclose that information inside the post.
2.8) Links to a user’s blog, website, or publication may be approved, but that user is expected to participate in the /Portland community beyond simply providing a link.
For all of the above, please see Reddit's FAQ regarding what constitutes spam and guidelines for self promotion.
3) Crime posts and police case numbers - If you are posting about a missing person, stolen item or other crime or law enforcement-related event, a police case number must be included along with the contact number for the office or agency handling the case. Please do not ask for users to reply via private message or personal email, or to call/message private numbers directly. In most cases, a link to a news story will work in place of a case number. Without this information, your post may be flagged and removed by the mods.
4) Novelty and Impersonation Accounts - Accounts with usernames that represent or attempt to represent any city or state agency, any local public utility, or accounts purporting to belong to members of the press will not be allowed without being verified by the moderator team. AMAs are usually allowed but require pre-verification. If a representative of those agencies or utilities wants to create an account for the purposes of interacting with the community on an official basis, they can send a message to the moderation team for directions on how to create a verified account.
4.1) Novelty accounts may be removed.
4.2) Accounts impersonating moderators will be removed.
4.3) Bots and accounts exhibiting bot-like behavior will be removed.
5) Gore/Disturbing imagery - Images of human remains, gore, or other disturbing imagery may be removed at moderator's discretion.
6) Duplicates - Duplicate posts on the same topic may be removed if the original is less than 48 hours old or is a common repost. If you have additional information or another news source, please submit it as a comment under the original post.
7) Editorialized Headlines - Headlines should be kept original whenever possible, with your opinions reserved for the comment section. An exception which might not fall under this rule would be, for example, a general housing study not Portland-specific but with the headline changed to "An interesting look at where real estate could be heading to in Portland". Otherwise, keep headlines intact.
8) URL redirects or shorteners - Redirects or URL shorteners (e.g. Google AMP links, tinyURL, etc.) will not be allowed. This also includes archival sites.
9) AskPortland - Questions related to moving or visiting Portland may be sent to our sister sub, /AskPortland. All the same rules in /Portland will apply to /AskPortland and it will be moderated more heavily to ensure it remains a helpful place.
Approval/Removal of all posts and comments is up to moderator discretion

I'm visiting your city, what is there to do?

FIRST: read the Visitor's Guide at /AskPortland. It is updated frequently and discussion/questions are encouraged.
The greater Portland area has lots of things to see and do, from museums to a wonderful zoo to numerous parks, restaurants, coffeehouses and microbreweries. Here are a few of our local highlights:
  • The Oregon Zoo - Located in Washington Park just off Highway 26 west of downtown, the Oregon Zoo was founded in 1888, making it the oldest zoo west of the Mississippi. Home to 2,200 animals from more than 260 species, the zoo is probably most famous for its herd of five Asian elephants in their new Elephant Lands exhibit. Hours vary by season, usually around 9-10am until 4-6pm. Admission during peak season (Mar.-Sept.) is $14.95 adults / $9.95 kids (ages 3-11), during off-peak season (Oct.-Feb) is $9.95 adults / $4.95 kids, and toddlers are always free. It’s recommended that you take the MAX light rail Red Line or Blue Lines to get there, as you won't have to pay for parking (which can run up to $6), and you'll get $1.50 off your admission. The MAX stop for the Zoo is Washington Park Station -- at 260 feet below the surface it’s the deepest transit station in North America! Plan on your stay being more than just a quick jaunt, as the zoo is quite extensive. In addition to seeing the many animals, you can also ride the Washington Park and Zoo Railway, a ⅝ scale narrow-gauge railway with classic trains that roll around the zoo and out to the Rose Test Gardens. The cost to ride the train is $4.00. During the summer you can stake out a spot on the lawn for the [Oregon Zoo Summer Concert Series](www.zooconcerts.com), and more during the holiday season more than a million LEDs light up the zoo each holiday season for ZooLights. For more information go to www.oregonzoo.org
  • The International Rose Test Garden - Part of Washington Park, the International Rose Test Garden is a beautifully manicured set of gardens featuring over 7,000 individual rose specimens from over 550 different varieties. The roses bloom from April through October with the peak coming in June, depending on the weather. Founded in 1917, it is the oldest continuously operating rose test garden in the United States. An amphitheater often features classical music performances or speeches. Its 4.5 acres of terraced hillside offer stunning views of Mt. Hood and downtown Portland, and its quiet nature is excellent for picnics. For more information, go here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/findeindex.cfm?&action=ViewPark&propertyid=1113
  • Oregon Museum of Science and Industry - OMSI is a large museum similar to San Francisco's Exploratorium. Its exhibits cover everything from geology to physics to chemistry to biology to human anatomy. It often hosts touring exhibits -- past examples include Body Worlds, an exhibit of da Vinci's notebooks with examples of his inventions, Grossology, and a National Geographic photography exhibit. OMSI also boasts the USS Blueback, a decommissioned Barbel-class submarine that was used in the filming of The Hunt for Red October and an episode of TNT’s The Librarians. You can tour the submarine, learn about how it was made and what Barbel-class submarines were used for during the Cold War. OMSI also has a recently remodeled planetarium that offers night-sky presentations and laser light shows, and an IMAX theater (called OMNIMAX) which runs both current-release movies and educational programs on a 5-story-high screen using dual Christie 4K projectors and Dolby Atmos audio. Admission to the museum is $14.50 for adults, $9.75 for kids. The submarine tour, planetarium, and OMNIMAX cost extra, in the $6-8 range depending on the toushow. Hours are daily 9:30-7 during the summer and Tuesday-Saturday 9:30-5:30 during the winter. For more info, go to www.omsi.edu
  • Oregon Historical Society - The history of Portland and the Oregon Territory is fascinating in a lot of respects, and the OHS does its best to cover it all. From the original native inhabitants to the adventures of the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the Oregon Trail to the founding and development of Portland, OHS has numerous displays and artifacts, as well as a massive catalog of historical documents. If you wish to learn about the history of the area, there is no better resource. Admission to the museum is free for Multnomah County residents, otherwise it’s $11 for adults, $9 for students/seniors, and $5 for kids (6-18yrs). There is no charge for admission to the research library. Hours are Monday-Saturday, 10am-5pm and Sunday Noon-5pm. For more info, go to www.ohs.org
  • Portland Art Museum - Right across the street from the Oregon Historical Society, the Portland Art Museum hosts numerous rotating exhibits and touring exhibits of art from all genres. Its recent acquisition of the massive Masonic Temple next door means they now have extensive room in which to display art from all over the world, everything from classical Greek sculpture to modern impressionism to an exhibit on cars. Admission is $19.99 for adults, $16.99 for students/seniors, and children 17 and under are free. The Museum is closed on Monday, and open the rest of the week from 10am to either 5pm or 8pm depending on the day, so check the website before visiting: www.portlandartmuseum.org
  • The Old Portland Underground - Portland's history includes a shady portion of its past, and the Underground seeks to show that. Also known as The Shanghai Tunnels, the Underground is a series of interconnected basements, tunnels, and low passageways from early in Portland's life. Considered by many to be haunted, it's a must for those who like the dark, scary atmosphere of basements and crawl spaces. Tours are conducted on Friday and Saturday evenings, the first Thursday evening of the month, and possibly by request. Check out www.shanghaitunnels.info for tour scheduling and ticket prices.
  • Waterfront and Esplanade - As the Willamette River flows from south to north towards the Columbia River, it cuts the city in two, providing plenty of opportunity for parks by the water. In the 1970s, the west bank’s Harbor Drive was demolished (the first example of freeway removal in the US!) and replaced by Tom McCall Waterfront Park, made up of 36+ acres of cherry trees, grassy lawns, concrete walkways, sculptures, a public fountain, and numerous memorials. This park often hosts major events such as the Rose Festival rides and food court, the Waterfront Blues Festival, the Bite of Oregon, the Oregon Brewer's Festival, and moorage for the naval ships that come to Portland during the Rose Festival Fleet Week. Salmon Street Springs is a popular local hangout during the warmer months, and the multi-phase fountain is designed for children to play in. Across the river, a 1998 city parks project created the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade, a 1.5 mile walking and bike path that mirrors Waterfront Park. Combining the two with sidewalks across the Hawthorne and Steel Bridges creates a wonderful walking/jogging/biking path that's slightly over 3 miles. Check out http://eventful.com/portland_ovenues/governor-tom-mccall-waterfront-park-/V0-001-000457577-8 to find out what events may be taking place there.
  • Pioneer Courthouse Square - Often referred to as "Portland's living room," the Square is a city block of brick work that hosts numerous city events, public speakers, our city Christmas Tree, and a place to stop and enjoy your lunch. Surrounded by shopping and large buildings, it's an open-air square with a continuous fountain and surrounded by large white columns. Our NBC affiliate has a satelite studio that looks onto the square, so you may see yourself on the news at some point. During July and August, every Friday night they show movies on a projection screen in an event known as Flicks on the Bricks. This coincides with a summer concert series called Noon Toons, which showcases local bands and is aired live by the NBC affiliate. www.thesquarepdx.org will have more info on events currently happening.
  • Blazers Basketball/Winterhawks Hockey/Timbers SocceThorns Soccer - Portland now boasts four professional sports teams: The Western Division NBA Trail Blazers, the Western Hockey League Winterhawks, Major League Soccer Timbers FC, winners of the 2015 MLS Cup, and the current National Women's Soccer League champion Thorns FC. The Trail Blazers and Winterhawks both play at the Rose Quarter, while the Timbers and Thorns play at Providence Park. Tickets for Blazers/Winterhawks events are available at www.rosequarter.com as well as a game schedule. We have a large soccer following in this city, and you can easily have a great time and make new friends at a Timbers game or watching it at one of our many sports bars (for example, 442, Thirsty Lion, and Marathon). You can find a list of Timbers Pub Partners here.
  • There are many more, www.travelportland.com/things-to-see-and-do will have many more ideas.
Other possible FAQ topics:

Where are the best views of the city?

Where can I go for a hike?

Where can I volunteer

Multnomah Falls/Gorge/Eagle Creek fire

I've got kids with me, what kind of child-oriented stuff is there?

  • Both the earlier mentioned Oregon Zoo and OMSI are both extremely kid friendly, and appropriate for just about any age. Toddlers may be a bit over-stimulated by OMSI, and the Zoo is quite large, so prepare accordingly. Our sports teams are also an option if your child is old enough to handle the noise levels.
  • Portland Children's Museum - An interactive educational museum and play center which shares a parking lot with the Oregon Zoo. Activities include a pretend veterinarian, a stage filled with props and costumes, places to draw and work clay, a rubber gravel pit for digging, a water area filled with pipes and water tables for splashing and making channels, and an enormous over-sized Lite-Brite wall. Admission is $9 per person. Hours can vary, see www.portlandcm.org for details.
  • Oaks Amusement Park - Step back into the heyday of roller rinks and small-town theme parks. Oaks Amusement Park has been a mainstay of Portland since 1905, opening with the Lewis and Clark Exposition. It features a roller coaster, go-karts, fairway rides, an arcade, outdoor picnic areas, and it's center attraction, an original 100 foot x 200 foot wooden roller skating rink. Outdoor activities are usually closed during the winter months, but skating is year round. Prices vary depending on what you wish to do with your day there, so look up www.oakspark.com for pricing, hours, and availability.

I'm moving to Portland, where should I live?

Portland, while not being very large geographically, is still pretty diverse in its cultures, tastes, and housing. Everything from major mansions to low-income housing is out there, and in a relatively small area. The best way to think about Portland is to realize it's made up of neighborhoods, most of which come from Portland's history and were originally their own small towns.
This is a good map of Portland's named neighborhoods.
The best idea is to find a location that is close to where you need to be on a regular basis (school, work, studio, family) but that also works well with your lifestyle. A good reference for deciding on what neighborhood will fit your lifestyle is The Portland Neighborhood Pages. Each of Portland's 95 neighborhoods is available with a general description, links to events/info of local import, and a google map of the area. Another more general resource is The Portland Neighborhood Guide, which is broader in it's focus and covers some of the cities and towns to the west.
As for looking for housing, www.padmapper.com is excellent for Portland, as is portland.craigslist.org and www.couchsurfing.org for more temporary accommodations. Keep in mind our rental market is extremely competitive. In 2013 our rental vacancy rate was only 3.1%, the second-lowest in the nation. You will want to budget for turning in a lot of applications, and may need to plan on attending open houses even for a small rental.
For people with children, schools are important, and another consideration when moving here. www.greatschools.org/oregon/portland rates all of the local schools on academics, test results, and community reviews.

I need some Internet service. What are my options?

Currently there are basically two main options for high speed internet in the city proper, Comcast and Centurylink. Some areas have Frontier FiOS available, primarily outside the city. Another option available is 4G wireless through Clear. If you're looking for other options or want to see personal recommendations, this search should bring up quite a few lively threads on the state of internet providers in the metro area. In the future there is the possibility of Google Fiber for the city, but the options remain limited for now.

I'm looking for somewhere to eat, what sounds good?

You're in luck. Portland has an extensive and diverse food culture, much of it based around our extensive collection of food carts. Currently 475 carts operate within the city limits, with more being added all the time. They can be as eclectic as they are varied, offering everything from standard lunch fair of burgers and hotdogs, to more unique food like Ethiopian cuisine, Korean BBQ, Viking Soul Food, and gourmet waffles. www.foodcartsportland.com has a full list of the Portland carts, as well as reviews on each one and a map of locations. Many of them are centered in what are known as "cart pods," which are sections of parking lots that have been converted into open-air food markets. For local redditor recommendations, read through this thread. You'll see some names pop up more than once, those would be the ones to try out first. A good way to find something near you is to use Cartattack, which gives you cart locations via GPS.
Beyond that, there are numerous eateries, restaurants, diners, and 24-hour places that serve Portlanders great food. http://www.urbanspoon.com/c/24/Portland-restaurants.html is probably your best resource for finding something more substantial in terms of sit-down eating.
Finally, there is one thing that Portland is well known for: Beer. Portland has numerous microbreweries and brewpubs, and consistently vies for the top spot in breweries per capita in the world. From IPAs to Stouts to Ambers and everything in between, Portland can and will offer you some of the best beer in the world. www.portlandbrewpubs.com has a full list of brewpubs, most of which offer tasting options or tours of the brewing facilities. Take a load off, kick back with a nice pint of something local, and enjoy the Portland experience!!

How do I get to Portland?

  • By car - If you are coming to Portland from outside the state, there are three major freeways that can get you here. From the south, I-5 will get you to Portland via Grants Pass, Medford, Eugene, and Salem from the California border in about 5-6 hours. It should be noted that during the winter months the areas around Grants Pass can have severe weather, and the pass may be closed or require traction devices. From the east, I-84 heads to Portland via Ontario, Pendleton, The Dalles, and Hood River. The drive from the Idaho border will take you around 7-8 hours. Again, weather can impact this drive, and closures/traction device requirements may occur. From the north, I-5 and I-205 cross the Columbia River from Washington, putting you directly into Portland. It takes about three hours to make the 175-mile drive from Seattle, but this time can be significantly impacted by traffic.
  • By car, the scenic way - Oregon is a naturally beautiful state, so if you have the time to take a longer drive, there are several recommendations. Highway 101 up the coast from California to Astoria and then Hwy 30 in to Portland is one such drive. It hits several small coastal communities along the way, with numerous points of interest. That drive will add 3-4 hours to your trip, but is worth the sights. Going through the east side and experiencing the high desert is another consideration. For this route take Hwy 97 from I-5 at Mt Shasta, and follow it up through Klamath Falls, then Bend, to the town of Madras. From there, take Hwy 26 and cross over Mt. Hood and into Portland. Both of these routes can be significantly impacted by weather, so look for closures or traction device requirements. This is especially true of Hwy 26 over Mt. Hood, as this reaches a peak height of over 4000 feet above sea level.
Add link to TripCheck.com
  • By bus - Two major bus services serve travelers in the Portland area. Greyhound has its bus terminal on the same property as Union station, and makes runs on the north/south route of I-5, east via I-84 and Hwy 26, and west via Hwy 26. Ticket prices and schedules are available on their website.
  • By rail - Amtrak serves Portland via the north/south routes through Union Station, which is located right in the heart of downtown Portland. Ticket prices and schedules will vary depending on your starting location, so go to www.amtrak.com to find out what is available and how much it will cost.
  • By plane - The major airport in Portland is called Portland International Airport, known as PDX (a term often used as a nickname for Portland in general), and offers most major airline services, as well as international flights. It is located in Northeast Portland, and is located between I-5 and I-205. Our light rail service has a line that terminates just next to baggage claim, and is a useful way to get to and from the airport without the hassle of parking a car. www.trimet.org can be used to plan your trip there.

How do I get around town?

  • By foot - Portland is a city of sidewalks, for the most part. Much of the downtown core and surrounding areas feature wide sidewalks with large cross-walks and timed lights. So if you are staying downtown, you don't need to get a bus or cab, walking is the easy way to go. It also allows you to sample the food carts, find the odd and interesting shops, and generally enjoy the greenery and friendly people. Keep in mind that downtown Portland has much smaller blocks than most cities, so a walk of several blocks isn’t necessarily that far.
  • By bike - Portland is currently considered to be one of the best bike cities in the US. 314 miles of bike lanes and a culture accepting of two-wheeled transport means that getting out for a ride is much easier here. Many of the smaller coffee shops and restaurants quite happily advertise bike parking, and the city is currently working on a 2-year backlog of installing public bike racks. Your best bet would be to go to www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/36638 and pick up a map or two of places you'd like to ride. Add Biketown info
  • By bus/light rail - TriMet is Portland's regional mass transit provider, and has bus, light rail, and streetcar service. www.trimet.org has a trip planner (just need to know your address and the address or name of the location you want to get to) which will tell you how long of a wait you may have, how far you may need to walk, or how many buses you may need to take.
  • By taxi - Numerous taxi services operate in Portland, however it's not like in the bigger cities where there are fleets of them floating around waiting to pick you up. Your best bet would be to call and order a car to pick you up. Recommendations are to go with the larger, well-known companies like Radio Cab or Broadway.
  • By rental car - The usual fare of major car rental companies are available in Portland. Enterprise, Hertz, National and Budget Car Rentals all have several locations in Portland. However, as with any company that owns a chain of stores, your experience may vary depending on the location you go to. It's recommended that you search reviews for each location before picking one. Another option is Car2Go, a company that offers car sharing services for those who need a car occasionally but don't use one often. They have both gas and electric versions of the Smartcar FourTwo, and have approximately 250 cars in Portland. Go to their website for details concerning pricing and agreements.
  • By personal car - Much of the downtown core and portions of the surrounding area are built on a one-way grid system. So it helps to have a GPS or at least a good map to get around. One thing to remember, is that streets that run parallel to the river are all numbered, and the numbers get bigger as you move away from the river. So if you get lost, just find a numbered street, and head downhill. Admittedly, Portland can have issues with traffic during rush hour, so it's advised to travel the back roads a bit and find ways to avoid the three Interstate freeways and major highways during the 6-9am and 4-6pm times. Add info about Burnside/Willamette dividing into NSEW quadrants?

What resources are available for bicyclists?

Two great web resources are /CyclePDX and Bike Portland.

I've got stuff that I need to get rid of, but it shouldn't go in the trash. What should I do?

There's help for that. Metro has a great website that offers insight on how to get rid of anything from packing peanuts to propane canisters to power tools, this site will give you the info to trash, turn in, reuse, or recycle those things that you just can't have floating around anymore.
If you want to get rid of computers that are still in decent repair, look into www.freegeek.org as they provide refurbished computers to schools and those in need. They are also set up as a way for people to learn about computers through free classes and volunteers who work on everything from cleaning dirty machines to building computers.
Another option is SCRAP PDX, which is a non-profit recycling center for office or classroom materials. Designed as a way to inspire creativity while reducing garbage and encouraging reuse and recycling, SCRAP PDX offers a way for people to drop off unwanted or unused arts and crafts, office, party, or school supplies, which are then resold to those who made need them for their own projects. Further details are at their website.

My pet is sick and needs a vet NOW. Where should I go?

Portland has several area vet hospitals, several of which are 24-hour intake facilities. Locations and providers can vary, so check to see which one is closest and best for your pet. Below is a list of the larger and reputable locations in Portland:

How does one cope with downtown living?

Written by shamann00dle
This is expounding on this thread. Living in downtown has it's own unique challenges and rewards. Here are some ways I dealt with things in my 8 years downtown.
Drunks & Crazies Keeping You Up
  • Expect it. That does not mean it is right, but the fact of the matter is downtown Portland at night is full of douche-y suburbanites that will do stuff downtown that they would call 911 on you for doing in their neighborhood, drug addicts/alcoholics and the mentally ill. Let their douchiness flow through you and out the other side lest you be swept into the maelstrom of asshattery.
  • Portland Police non-emergency number: 503-823-3333 - If someone is lingering and being loud, call.
  • For drunks that are passed out, etc. Call CHIERS - the local drunk tank - (503) 294-1681
  • If you are in their service area, call Clean and Safe at 503-224-7383. If you call police with a non-emergency that is probably a non-arrestable offense within that map between 9-5, they are simply going to ask Clean and Safe to handle it anyways. Don't expect C&S to do too much. They carry a gun and are retired cops, but have no authority to arrest. They are there to move people along, write reports and call the cops if it gets too bad.
  • If the person is in a park downtown, the Park Rangers now have jurisdiction unless it is a 911 emergency - 503-823-1637
  • If the drunk is hanging outside a particular bar, store, grocery store or restaurant and being loud - call that establishment and have their security go outside and shut them up. Many times this is actually what the police do when you call them for a disturbance.
  • Use a combination of the pink noise at http://simplynoise.com/ and a fan. I found that combination block out all but the most egregious drunktards.
Trouble On The Streets
  • I lived and worked downtown plus walked everywhere I went for the time I lived there. I only had one full-blown altercation in all that time and could have avoided that if I'd chosen too. Don't expect any trouble but be aware of your surroundings. You are more likely to encounter annoyances rather than an actual problem on the streets of downtown.
  • Also call clean and safe if there is a part of downtown that needs to be cleaned, various human excretions, dirty needles and the like.
  • IF you run into trouble downtown, it will most likely happen after 10 PM or so between SW Broadway and the river and SW Washington and the train station.
  • Use the numbers above for non-911 problems.
Annoyances
  • Panhandlers. There are days I would get hit up for change 20 times or more. If the person is aggressive, please call police. Ignoring them just means that many more people will have to deal with it. How you interact with panhandlers is up to you, your personality and tolerance level. When I moved here I gave out change, then I started saying "sorry" when they asked, then I put in earbuds and pretended not to hear them even if I had no music on, the I dropped the pretense and just ignored them unless they were offensive... I'm sure on bad days I told a couple to get fucked but there was really no need for that. PLEASE do NOT give panhandlers money. I'm could write a novel about this, homelessness in Portland, services and ways of really helping these people. The change is perpetuating all sorts of problems. I will address this in the comments if needed.
  • Chuggers AKA "Charity Muggers". These are the people that stand on the corner and ask you if you want to help the whales or orphaned children. I've dealt with them in the same way I've dealt with panhandlers. Once the rainy season ends, expect them to descend on every street corner downtown.
The Up-Side
  • Too much to list here really
  • You are living in a really fucking cool city
  • Just going for a short walk can be quite an experience. You never know what you will see
  • There is a lot to see and do on foot. Get out and enjoy the parks, museums, people watching, bars and more.
  • Remember all the great stuff and try to focus on that when some wino decides to pick a fight with a newspaper vending machine at 3 in the morning.

Why are there fighter jets flying over the city?

The Oregon Air National Guard’s 142nd Fighter Wing (the “Redhawks”) operates F-15C/D Eagle fighter jets out of the Portland Air National Guard Base at Portland International Airport. They are on 24-hour alert as part of Air Combat Command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), and can frequently be seen in the skies throughout the region.
You can find more information in this detailed explanation at PortlandMofo: Military Jets Over Portland Today Explanation

What was that loud noise/bang/explosion?

No idea. I’m sure there will be any number of posts about it soon.

What are the flickering orange things sometimes seen floating in the sky?

Those are the star ships of the alien sex goddesses that live in a pleasure dome that orbits just outside the Kuiper Belt. Sometimes they descend to earth to collect a few worthy humans to bring back with them to shower with fruity champagne cocktails and watermelon balls.
But no, really those are just paper lanterns that are part of some festivals sometimes, or maybe goofs launch them to cause confusion and mayhem.

\r\n\r\nThis is according to Department of Science and Technology Undersecretary for Scientific and Technological Services Dr. Rowena Guevara, who spoke at the recent “Demo Day” for 15 fellows of the Leaders in Innovation Fellowship at the Asian Institute of Management in Makati City.
\r\n\r\nIndeed, Demo Day was proof of innovation in the Philippines, with scientists presenting solutions to improve lives.
\r\n\r\nThe event was organized by AIM, the British Embassy in Manila, and the Royal Academy of Engineering. Through the British Embassy and DOST’s Newton Agham Program, scientific ideas are brought from the laboratory to the market.

JAmp Alert Kit

\r\n\r\nThe Philippines has at least 50,000 hectares of shrimp farms, but the industry declined because of the “white spot syndrome virus”, which was found in China and spread througout the world.
\r\n\r\nThrough Dr. Mary Beth Maningas and her team’s invention, farmers will be able to detect the disease by getting a sample from the shrimp’s swimmers, then put it on the device, and see whether it is positive or negative for the disease within an hour.
\r\n\r\nThus, they can decide whether to harvest the shrimp early or to dry their pond out, so that the disease will not spread further.
\r\n\r\nThe team promises that farmers can use the device even without much technical know-how.
\r\n\r\n

Jolt Home Energy Storage System

\r\n\r\nWith this power storage device, a user can charge his or her laptop ten times, or charge three laptops at the same time for five hours.
\r\n\r\nThe brains behind Jolt, University of the Philippines Diliman Electrochemical Engineering professor Joey Ocon, aims to help power rural areas, particularly those that are not connected to the national grid. This can also be used for emergencies, as well as camping trips, given the LED lamp inside the gadget.
\r\n\r\nHe adds that their device will hasten the Philippines’ transition to renewable energy, as Jolt can be charged through either a wall charger, or solar panels.

Ginhawa ventilator

\r\n\r\nIs it possible to get a Mercedes-Benz at the cost of a Kia? The developers of the Ginhawa ventilator think so, as it costs hundreds of thousands of pesos less than standard ventilators used in hospitals, while having similar properties.
\r\n\r\nIn the Philippines, ten patients in intensive care have to share one ventilator, according to Dr. Abundio Balgos, a lung and critical care specialist who heads the UP Manila and De La Salle University teams which collaborated to develop Ginhawa. Meanwhile, half of ICU patients need a ventilator to survive.
\r\n\r\nHospitals fail to acquire enough ventilators because of the cost.
\r\n\r\nGinhawa hopes to remedy that. It has been in development for more than 20 years, and will now undergo human safety and effectivity studies at the Philippine General Hospital.
\r\n\r\nBalgos targets a production of 100 units for the first year, as they have already identified a manufacturing partner. But they need P20 million as an initial fund.
\r\n\r\nHospitals have rental and lease-to-own options for Ginhawa. As for Balgos, he dreams of one day seeing all hospitals in the Philippines having at least one ventilator of their own.

Kaninyumanggi stabilized brown rice

\r\n\r\nBrown rice is high in dietary fiber, which makes consumers to feel full faster. Eating it is an easy way to get micronutrients that they lack.
\r\n\r\nBut ordinary brown rice has a short shelf life, a hard texture, and needs longer cooking time.
\r\n\r\nThrough stabilization technology, these properties are remedied.
\r\n\r\nMore consumers can enjoy this brown rice, sourced from Nueva Ecija. As technology generator Rosemarie Garcia says, “Kaninyumanggi, pagkain ng lahing kayumanggi (Brown rice, the food for the brown race).”

Guaviderm

\r\n\r\nSkin infections which may be mild at first can nevertheless develop complications, such as sepsis and pneumonia. Some can even lead to death.
\r\n\r\nThis is why UP Manila-Institute of Herbal Medicine director Dr. Cecilia Maramba-Lazarte and her team developed a natural anti-bacterial solution for bacterial skin infections made from guava leaves.
\r\n\r\nLazarte says she wants to prevent these complications by treating them while they are still mild.
\r\n\r\nAhead of clinical trials, they have found that the ointment can kill Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) “superbugs”, which are normally resistant to common antibiotics.
\r\n\r\nGuaviderm is also cheaper than what is already in the market.
\r\n\r\nLazarte hopes that it will help the Philippine pharmaceutical industry, so that the country can have its own natural antibiotic product.
