2020.09.25 15:25 utmrelocationstudy Moving to Charlotte with your partner? Join our PAID study!

Hi Everyone!
I work at the University of Toronto's Relationships and Well-Being lab and we are currently recruiting couples who are relocating for one partner's work or school. If this is applicable to you and you want to earn a little extra money feel free to read more below 📷
Are you in a romantic relationship and plan to relocate with your partner in the near future? Are you interested in being involved in psychological research? If so, then our study would be a great fit for you!
My name is Crystal, and I am a research assistant from the Relationships and Well-Being (RAW) Lab at the University of Toronto. Our lab studies romantic relationships and what factors are responsible for keeping couples healthy and happy over time.
More specifically, we are launching a study that tracks couples who are going to relocate to a different city or country for one partner’s job in the upcoming year—a growing trend in our fast-paced, mobile world. Many people report changes to their relationships during a major life transition such as relocation. We are interested in surveying couples before they relocate, during their move (i.e., brief biweekly surveys in the midst of moving), and after they have relocated (i.e., follow-up surveys 3, 6, 9, and 12 months later) to identify factors that will help couples navigate changes throughout the relocation process. Given the longer-term commitment we require in this study, participants can earn up to $120 CAD ($240 CAD per couple) for their valuable time and efforts.
To be eligible for our study, you and your partner must be:
  1. At least 18 years old
  2. Currently living together
  3. Able to read and write in English
  4. Planning to relocate for one of your jobs/schooling (at the earliest) in one month from now up to (at the latest) one year from now **
  5. Both willing to participate in the study
**We recognize that your relocation plans may have been adjusted as a result of COVID-19. If you still intend to relocate for one of your jobs/schooling within the upcoming year, we encourage you to reach out.
If you meet our criteria and are interested in participating in our study, we ask that you email us at [email protected] with the subject line “Interest in Romantic Relationships and Relocation Study”. When we reply, we will arrange a time to chat on the phone with you and your partner to confirm your eligibility. Note: your personal information will be kept strictly confidential and only used for the purposes of contacting you to confirm eligibility.
We look forward to hearing from all of the relocaters out there!
With great thanks,
Crystal
The RAW Lab Team

2020.09.23 15:30 P-U-N-Kdom 22[T4R]Charlotte, NC - Gentle Polyamourous Mommy-Type Domme Seeking Submissive/Switch to be a Romantic Partner and Plaything IRL

About me -> 22 year old TransWoman, 5’5”, 185 Ibs. Mixed race but most people would say I am an olive toned white person. I have been on Hormone Replacement therapy for 4 years with stunning results as far as breast growth and a more femmine structure. I have plans to get surgery for my bottom parts at some point, so any one looking for post-op you can move on now. I am a little thicc but also have a fair amount of strength. Im not some frail little thing, who can hold her own and be rough when need be. I’m Pansexual and polyamorous; I currently have a Dominant who I am owned by and, with his consent, am looking for a new Submissive Romantic partner. You will not be in a relationship with my owner to start, but since he is poly there is potential. I used to have a submissive that I owned and was my Plaything, but in a complicated series of events, that I would perfer to explain via PM, they are gone now and we are no longer together. My dominant also has a little space he gets into frequently so I tend to be his Mommy then, but that relationship is non-sexual. The submissive I had liked to be called “Mommy’s Sextoy” if that gives any indication of some of the power dynamics I am into.
I dont like to have short relationships with people so preferably we would become friends first and hopfully grow into partners. Trust and communication are key here and I want to really get to know you as a person. I like all kinds of people and tend to be attracted by personalities more than bodies. Not to say I dont have certain likes or dislikes, and i would def say I have a thing for people who identify as alternative, punk, or goth. I have a lot of interests ranging from parkour and breakdancing to videogames (Legend of Zelda, Fallout, Skyrim, Darksiders, Pokemon) and anime (Naruto, The Law of Ueki, Yakkatte Japan, PSYCO-PASS, CowboyBeebop, My Hero Academia) so if you like that kinda stuff, awesome. I’m a meme queen for certain; filled with absurdist and sarcastic humor. My favorite obsession right now is building my he new Yugioh Switch game to playtes decks to hopfully use competitively in real life (I get so anxious to play at tournaments though). I love all kinds of adventures even if thats just a trip to the super market, however Im easily entertained, so you don’t have to worry about constantly holding my attention. I like to do abstract drawings in nature as well as write poetry, so show me your cool nature spots to chill. My music tatses are all over the place but I really like Jazz, Lofi, Angsty Alternative, and memey music. Also especially looking for someone who would be 420 friendly so we could smoke together. I smoke for medicinal and recreational purposes, but I am very respectful of everyone’s preferences and only smoke if I have consent. If you dont like it just tell me.
As a Dominant I tend to be a more gentle and loving type rather than hyper agressive/rough. That is not to say I haven’t had experince being rough but naturally I am more akin to slower types of play for more sensitive indviduals. I love being a mommy for my littles whether that relationship be platonic, romantic, sexual, or some mix. I am not only into littles and people who like ageplay. I have experince in a wide range of kinks (receiving and giving) including: Humiliation, Impact Play, Pet play, Consensual Non-Consent, Roleplay/Charchters, Bondage, Toys, Knifeplay/Bloodplay, Power Exchange, Human Sex Toy/Doll Play, Choking, Marking, Temprature Play, Teasing/Edging, Forced Orgasam, Dress-Up, and proably some other niche things I cant remember. Suffice to say I have a wide range of interestis and experience after being in the BDSM lifestyle for 5 years. Im not looking for one particular thing in a submissive as I want you to come as you are; one of my biggest pleasures as a Domme is your pleasure. Knowing Im making someone feel good really does something for me. I am also open to a switch as I enjoy being dominanted just as much as I enjoy dominating. Ideally you would also have a wide range of tastes and hopfully some experince as a Top, but I am a great teacher I feel like, esepcially when it comes to my wants/likes. I understand that some submissives may be seeking a TPE dynamic and unfortunately I cannot offer that do to my mental health. I have Owned or collared a submissive before, but understand there would not be a TPE dynamic at play. I cannot make all of your decisions and you need to be a mostly functioning adult already. I will imply rules for you to follow and you would be subject to orders at my discretion. I have no problem getting to this level with a sub, but it will take time as I have to be just as much ready as the submissive is. There is a lot of trust needed for this type of dynamic on both ends, so just be honest with me and we can talk openly.
A few final pieces of the puzzle for anyone who has read this far I am looking for an IRL relationship. I do not mind long distance but there will need to be potential to see you semi regularly. I live in the Charlotte, NC area so as you get further away I will be less inclined to proceed with the relationship. I can travel, but since I am looking for a romantic partner I would ask we try to travel eaually. My preference on your age would be between 21-27. I will accept people younger (18+ of course) based on maturity, however the max age i will accept will be 33 and that is pushing it. I am also looking for someone who is STD free and able to prove it with a recent screening from your doctor. I have a polycule to think about so I need to be safe for all of their sake and my own. I understand it is alot to ask but Safety is important. I would like to say again that Being 420 friendly is bonus points for me, but in no way to do I want to exculde people who dont smoke; you just need to be aware and accept that I do smoke. I hope you have enjoyed this post and hopfully I have made a few people either blush, wet, hard, gasp, smile, or something else entirely. PM me or set up a chat if your interested; Mommy is waiting for you dearie.

2020.09.23 15:30 ZandrickEllison Offseason Blueprint: The Houston Rockets are playing an entirely different game than their peers -- but will history remember them more like Nintendo or Sega?

The playoffs continue to rage on, but there are 26 teams sitting at home with nothing to do but twiddle their thumbs, watch the Conference Finals, and wait for next season to start.
For their sake, we wanted to look ahead with the next edition of the OFFSEASON BLUEPRINT series. In each, we'll preview some big decisions and make some recommendations for plans of attack along the way. Today, we're looking at the Houston Rockets.
Last night I watched a documentary about the video game battle between Sega and Nintendo called Console Wars (based on the Blake J. Harris book), so that may bled into my brain and into this particular entry.
step one: trust your Tom Kalinske
When Sega found itself lagging way behind the curve, they made an unconventional hire in executive Tom Kalisnke. Kalinske didn't have any video game experience, having come from Mattel where he dealt with Barbies and He-Man toys. Presumably, rival execs rooted against him. Still, the man had a magical touch when it came to marketing and a vision of the future that went against the grain. The hire turned out to be a home run.
The same can be said for Houston's Daryl Morey, perhaps the first true "nerd" general manager. Other GMs learned to adopt analytics; Morey was born in it, molded by it. He's so far ahead of the curve that other teams still haven't learned to catch up yet. There's a rudimentary stat called "MoreyBall" which adds your three pointers and free throws and then divides by your twos. The league average is about 1.00. Houston Rockets are at 1.51, by far the highest mark in the league.
These Houston Rockets just got stomped by the old-school (in contrast) L.A. Lakers, which many believe showed the flaws in their approach. I disagree. The Lakers had Anthony Davis and LeBron f'ing James. Those are two beasts that are nearly impossible to match up with. In contrast, the Houston Rockets had James Harden, a wobbly Russell Westbrook, and a shaky supporting cast. Their style of play didn't lose the playoffs for them; their style of play kept them in the playoffs as long as it possibly could before superior talent won out (against these Lakers and against Golden State prior.)
Knowing that, the Houston Rockets need to adjust and make over their roster, but maintain their fundamental approach and style of play.
step two: keep speeding it up like Sonic the Hedgehog
In their battle against Nintendo, Sega found an ace in the hole in the form of super-speedy Sonic the Hedgehog. It provided them a huge surge in the marketplace.
When the Houston Rockets traded Chris Paul for Russell Westbrook, there were plenty of theories as to why. Was it a personality clash? A financial consideration? Tilman Fertitta being a frittata?
To be fair, there are some logical, basketball-related reasons as to why Westbrook may have been a better fit for the Houston brand of basketball. Chris Paul is still an awesome player, but he plays at a more deliberate pace, slowly targeting midrange shots like it's Duck Hunt. In contrast, Westbrook is the "Sonic" of point guards, going so fast that he can sometimes veer out of control. After making the swap at PG, the Rockets' pace jumped all the way from 27th (with CP3) up to 2nd this year. That's more in line with James Harden and the smallball approach.
Going forward, the team needs to maintain that identity as they look toward a new coach. Completely reversing course and trying to slow it down or go "big" would be a mistake. We want to find the next Mike D'Antoni, not Mike D'Anti-toni.
For me, two potential coaching prospects immediately jump to mind: Kenny Atkinson and Chris Finch.
Atkinson is the more familiar name, and the easier one to link to this job. His first job as an assistant actually came under Mike D'Antoni, and he's learned to play with a "pace and space" approach. His Brooklyn Nets routinely finished in the top 5 in three-point attempts. It's confusing to me why Atkinson hasn't been a hotter candidate in the marketplace yet given his resume, but he'd fit in easily here.
I'd also say the same about Chris Finch, a lesser known assistant in New Orleans. Finch has a spectacular resume as a head coach in smaller leagues, and has served as a top assistant for Houston, Denver, and now New Orleans. Through it all, his offenses play fast. I happen to like Atkinson and Finch a lot for any team, but I like them for this team especially. Of course, that's operating under the presumption that the Rockets are looking for a younger, cheaper version of Mike D'Antoni, and don't want to reinvent themselves entirely.
step three: don't bust like Buster
When you're locked into an intense competition with your rivals, you can't make missteps like Sega may have when they based their boxing game around new sensation (!) Buster Douglas.
Similarly, the Houston Rockets don't have much of a margin for error. When you're playing small and you're playing fast, you're going to exhaust your players. You need to give them some solid reinforcements. The fact that Houston had poor depth was a death knell for them, especially when Danuel House decided to play his own game of Leisure Suit Larry.
Finding capable depth for Houston is never going to be easy given the fact that they're paying a combined $82.5M for James Harden and Russell Westbrook next season. Their role players are also aging. At the start of next season, P.J. Tucker will be 35 and Eric Gordon will be 32. They have some free agents like Jeff Green (age 34), Thabo Sefolosha (age 36), and Tyson Chandler (age 37.) Help is needed, ASAP. Send AARP while you're at, too.
Trading Eric Gordon would make a lot of sense. For a "shooter," his shooting comes and goes. He only shot 31.7% from beyond the arc in the regular season, and only improved that to 32.2% in the playoffs. And if Gordon isn't knocking down shots, he's a potential liability overall. At 6'4", he has limited size for the wing, which has contributed to some problems the team has in terms of defense and rebounding.
Unfortunately, trading Gordon may be easier said than done. He has an obscenely long contract that will pay him $17M next season, $18M the following year, $19M the next year, and $21M all the way in 2023-24 (when Gordon will be 35 years old.) The Rockets may have to attach picks to get rid of a contract like that.
Sadly, the same may be true for Russell Westbrook. He actually played well for the Rockets this year (pre playoffs), but his contract is fatter than Mario after a pasta dinner. He'll be paid $41M + $44M + $47M (player option). Given his particular skill set, you worry about how he'll age. If the team can flip Westbrook and turn him in 2-3 decent players, they have to consider that. However, I'm just not sure where that trade partner is coming from. The team should listen to offers if they arise, but they shouldn't plan on that coming into fruition.
step four: look for help anywhere you can get it
At the tail end of their fight against Nintendo, Sega ended up passing on an outside firm whose technology ended up becoming Sony PlayStation. Whoops.
In order to avoid the same fate, the Houston Rockets need to scour the Earth, looking for potential help. As mentioned, it won't be easy. They have over $120M committed on their cap sheet already, and no draft picks in 2020. It's going to be slim pickin's.
Still, savvy teams have managed to find rotational players in circumstances like that before. The Miami Heat found Duncan Robinson, the L.A. Lakers found Alex Caruso. Heck, these same Houston Rockets found Danuel House (a legitimately good player, and apparently a good playa as well.) If the Rockets can add a credible 7th and 8th man, they'd feel much better about their chances. Better still, they'd be able to give stars like James Harden some rest. Harden's been a horse in Houston, but if he ended up missing 20+ games, things could get ugly fast.
So where is this cheap help coming from? Some may have to be internal. Ben McLemore has always flashed athleticism and shooting talent, but he still needs to iron out his consistency. Perhaps having another year in the same situation will help him get even more comfortable. I'm even hopeful the team may get some solid minutes from David Nwaba. He's limited offensively, but he's a good defensive player who may pair well with James Harden.
Going forward, I'd like to see the Rockets develop more players in that mold rather than patching together over-the-hill veterans like Band-aids. Former Rocket Isaiah Hartenstein may be worth bringing back to the building. P.J. Dozier (DNE) may be playing himself out of their price range, but he's an intriguing project. I like the ball movement skills of Harry Giles (SAC) and Theo Pinson (NYK.) Perhaps forgotten veterans like Mo Harkless (NYK) or Noah Vonleh (DEN) would take a cheap deal in order to play in the Houston style and buoy their stock for next year. Finding forwards with good size is paramount; this team was partially constructed to beat Golden State and now the Lakers appear to be the biggest threat out West.
The desperate need to DEVELOP talent also speaks to the need for the next coaching staff. Kenny Atkinson has a good reputation in terms of player development, which is going to be crucial as the team tries to manufacture depth around Harden and Westbrook -- not only for this next year, but for the next several years to come. If the Rockets fail to do that, they'll lose this console war and have nothing to look forward to but a Blake J. Harris retrospective in 30 years time.

2020.09.22 10:30 mediuqrepmes [OC] Comprehensive list of possible Chris Paul trades with every other team in the league

Here’s my overview of the universe of possible CP3 trades. I’ve gone through each team’s cap sheet and identified how a Chris Paul trade could be constructed. Wherever possible I’ve proposed one or more specific trades.
To trade for Chris Paul’s $41M salary for 2020-21, most teams will need to send at least $33M in outgoing salary to make the trade legal under the CBA’s salary matching rules. The exceptions are the handful of teams that have significant cap space.
I focused on what works cap-wise. For the most part I omitted specific draft picks. The list is comprehensive, so there are teams here for the sake of completeness that make no sense as CP3 trade partners. For every trade, Chris Paul is the only player OKC is sending out; including additional OKC players in the trade configurations would have made this writeup too long. Some players are so obviously unavailable (e.g., Doncic, Steph Curry, LeBron) that I omitted them from potential trade constructions.

2020.09.20 23:13 nagolscience What happened to Chelsea Green? Where did she go?

She got signed by WWE, then didn’t debut for ages (which isn’t abnormal). She was working a tag team with Deonna Purrazzo called VXT and they showed them in the crowds and all that, but they never properly debuted. Then, she finally debuts with Robert Stone and goes 50/50 with Kayden Carter. She was in the 2020 Royal Rumble for less than a minute. She debuts on Raw, gets squashed by Charlotte, then is never seen on the main roster again (outside of the occasional Main Event match). She qualifies for the NXT Ladder match that was supposed to be on Takeover: Tampa. Lastly, she was Charlotte Flair’s tag team partner and scored the victory over Rhea Ripley and Io Shirai, fired Robert Stone, and hasn’t been seen since.
Since then; everyone she’s ever interacted with on screen has moved on to bigger and better things. Robert Stone actually got kinda over because he’s funny as hell. Aliyah took her place and looks like a much better fit for the role. Deonna is out of WWE. Her husband is out of WWE. Wtf?

2020.09.18 21:47 114270 The murder or suicide of Davina Buff Jones

I recently discovered this case and while looking into have not seen much conversation or news coverage of it in the last 5 years. A few podcasts have covered the case but only by providing details from articles and news reports that are at least 5 to 10 years old.
Some quick details of the case but I included links to some well researched articles.
A relatively new police officer, Davina Buff Jones, was about 10 months into her first job as an officer on Bald Head Island off the coast of North Carolina. BHI is a luxury vacation island only reachable by ferry. It has no cars only golf carts (police and medics do have vehicles).
Davina Buff Jones radios into dispatch that she is "out with three" indicating she has stopped three subjects. A few minutes later the dispatcher hears her on the radio telling “There ain’t no reason to have a gun here on Bald Head Island, OK?” Her voice was steady and clear. “You wanna put down the gun. Come on, do us a favor and put down—” The radio then goes silent.
Her partner hears this and heads out to find her dead at the base of the historic lighthouse. She had been shot once in the back of the head, by her own gun (the gun was later found to have no fingerprints whatsoever on it).
The county sheriff's office and State Bureau of Investigation was called in and hurriedly declared the cause of death to be suicide, but doubts remain. The crime scene was destroyed by people responding as well as investigators. Her body was apparently moved and left out uncovered. The scene was then hosed down by the fire department in preparation for a nearby chapel.
Initially the death was ruled a suicide, then over the years different panels changed it to undetermined, then I think most recently ruled a homicide.
Some theories suggest it was suicide based on some strange actions recently on her part. She broke up with her boyfriend and had a history of depression. Its been speculated that she staged her suicide to look like murder so her family would get benefits that NC gives to an officer who died in the line of duty (suicides do not get this benefit)
Theories that support murder are that she may have interrupted a drug transaction. He radio call suggests other people were present at her death. The island had issues with being a drug smuggling location and Davina Buff Jones had mentioned to her father she wanted to investigate drugs on the island. If it was murder some speculate that the island police and officials covered up the murder to protect the island’s tourist trade and wealthy residents.

I know what direction I am leaning on this, but I wondered what you all though either people new to the case or those of you who have followed it over the years.

2020.09.18 15:04 4verticals Final title changes in WWE to happen in front of a crowd

I was thinking about how much wrestling has changed this year and it got me to thinking about the last title changes to happen with fans present to witness them. I decided to create a reference guide because I'm nerdy about obscure stats like this and their related info. The last WWE show to happen in front of a crowd was Raw on March 9th. The champions on that date, and the title change that occurred when they won the title, were:
WWE Championship: Brock Lesnar over Kofi Kingston, Smackdown, October 4th 2019. Brock dropped the title to Drew McIntyre at Mania, and the title has remained around Drew's waist ever since.
Universal Championship: Goldberg over "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt, Super Showdown, Saudi Arabia, February 27th 2020. Interestingly, the last Universal Title change before this also happened in Saudi Arabia, when Wyatt beat Seth Rollins on Halloween of 2019 at Crown Jewel. The last Universal Title change to happen in front of a Western crowd was when Rollins beat Brock Lesnar at Summerslam on August 11th 2019. Since beating Wyatt in Saudi, Goldberg dropped the title to Braun Strowman at Mania, and the title currently sits around the waist of Roman Reigns.
Raw Women's Championship: Becky Lynch over Ronda Rousey, WrestleMania 35, April 8th 2019. This match was a triple threat match that also involved Charlotte and was also for her Smackdown Women's Championship. Since dethroning Ronda here, Becky held the title for over a year until she needed to take time off due to pregnancy, wherein the title was contested in the MITB match on May 10th 2020, which was won by Asuka.
Smackdown Women's Championship: Bayley over Charlotte, Smackdown, October 11th 2019. Amazingly, Bayley is still champion.
Intercontinental Championship: Sami Zayn over Braun Strowman, Elimination Chamber, March 8th 2020. Sami literally squeaked in here, winning the title from Braun on the penultimate show in front of crowds. This match was a 3-on-1 handicap match in which Zayn was partnered by his Artist Collective teammates, Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura. Zayn's reign lasted 65 days before he vacated the title due to being unable to appear on the show during the pandemic. The title is currently held by Jeff Hardy, but Zayn is back on TV and is claiming to be the rightful champion.
United States Champion: Andrade over Rey Mysterio, house show, Boxing Day 2019. The last title change to probably ever happen at a house show, as WWE has expressed interest in moving away from them even after a return to live crowds. The last televised US Title change was when Rey beat AJ Styles on Raw a month prior to his defeat to Andrade. The title currently is held by Bobby Lashley.
Raw Tag Team Championships: Street Profits over Seth Rollins and Murphy, Raw, March 2nd 2020. The Profits also squeaked in here, beating Rollins and Murphy a week prior to the final show in front of crowds. Like Bayley, Dawkins and Ford are yet to drop their titles.
Smackdown Tag Team Championships: Miz and John Morrison over New Day, Super Showdown, Saudi Arabia, February 27th 2020. The last Smackdown tag title change to happen in front of a Western crowd was when New Day beat the Revival (remember them? :P) in Manchester, England on an episode of Smackdown in November 2019. The last change to happen in front of a North American crowd was when Revival beat New Day at Clash of Champions 2019 in their home state of North Carolina. The titles are currently held by Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura.
Women's Tag Team Championships: Asuka and Kairi Sane over Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross, Hell In A Cell, October 6th 2019. Asuka and Kairi would drop the titles back to Alexa and Nikki at Mania. The titles are currently held by Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax.
24/7 Championship: Riddick Moss over Mojo Rawley, Raw, February 10th 2020. Moss dropped the belt to R-Truth two months later when he was out jogging. Yes, this is a championship contested in professional wrestling matches. The title is currently held by R-Truth, who is in his... 39th reign.
NXT Championship: Adam Cole over Johnny Gargano, TakeOver: XXV, June 1st 2019. Cole's reign would end up being the longest in the history of the title, before he dropped the belt to Keith Lee, in a match that was also for Lee's North American Championship, on Night 2 of the 2020 Great American Bash in July. The title is currently held by Finn Balor.
NXT Women's Championship: Rhea Ripley over Shayna Baszler, NXT TV, December 18th 2019. Rhea would be given a Mania program with Charlotte, who ended her reign. The title is currently held by Io Shirai, who beat Charlotte in a triple threat match also involving Rhea.
NXT North American Championship: Keith Lee over Roderick Strong, NXT TV, January 22nd 2020. Lee would vacate the title after defeating Adam Cole and also becoming NXT Champion. The North American Championship is currently held by Damian Priest.
NXT Tag Team Championships: Matt Riddle and Pete Dunne over Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly, TakeOver: Portland, February 16th 2020. Interestingly, Dunne would become isolated in the UK during the pandemic and his half of the championships was then defended on his behalf by Timothy Thatcher. Riddle and Thatcher dropped the titles to Imperium on the May 13th episode of NXT. They then ended up having a match in the "Fight Pit". The titles are currently held by Breezango.
Here's to hearing the crowd pop again for a title change sometime in the not too distant future. Hope you enjoyed reading.

2020.09.18 00:29 suchapain From Tsunade to Mereoleona: Looking for Shonen Jump’s Lady Mentors - anime feminist

https://www.animefeminist.com/from-tsunade-to-mereoleona-looking-for-shonen-jumps-lady-mentors/
Shounen is a genre famous for its rigid tropes: underdog main characters (almost universally male) inspiringly fixated on reaching their goals, intense fight scenes, and themes of teamwork, the bonds of friendship, determination, and the power of hard work. Although the genre has received criticism for clinging so closely to established themes and tropes, its global popularity speaks for itself.
Although marketed toward boys, at least one third of Weekly Shonen Jump’s readers are now female. Despite this, Shonen Jump’s female characters remain over-sexualized, helpless, or useless beyond serving a role as the main character’s love interest. The manga and anime world has not yet caught up with the times by creating female characters that are both realistic and sympathetic to their real-world counterparts, and as prominent and important as their male costars. If one in three readers are female, why are female characters still relegated to the sidelines?
Perennial favorites Naruto and its sequel Naruto Shippuden by Kishimoto Masashi were among the first series to break this mold, including a cast of female characters with powerful skills and personalities who actually contributed to the plot. Naruto was originally published from 1999 to 2014 and, although by today’s standards its female representation is lacking, was truly ahead of its time. This may even have contributed to its international success, as it provided female fans with the opportunity to finally see themselves portrayed with attempted nuance and respect in a shounen manga.
Unfortunately, both Naruto series are full of women who are either strong, well-written characters without much screen time, or weaker characters who appear more frequently. Prominent among them is the most powerful woman for most of the series, Lady Tsunade.
...
It’s storytelling choices like these that send a silent but powerful message to female viewers: you’re not as important as the men. You’ll always need someone to rescue you. You’re not as interesting and you’ll never be as powerful, because if you were, you’d receive the same amount of attention. Not only is this subtle message harmful to female watchers, it’s not a great message for men and boys to internalize either. It reinforces the omnipresent societal idea that women are inferior, their struggles and stories don’t matter, and that instead of being a partner on equal footing, they’ll always cause problems by needing to be taken care of or rescued.
And this is why Black Clover is so meaningful to me. It’s one of the more recent battle shounen, having premiered in 2015, and it seems like an extremely typical shounen anime at first glance. With an underdog male protagonist who passionately wants to achieve his goals, teams of magical elite fighters, and inspirational themes, it has even been accused of being a cheap Naruto knock-off. However, if you stick around a little longer (and don’t worry, the further you get into the series the less Asta will be busting your eardrums!), it becomes clear that it might have done the impossible. Finally, here is a shounen battle anime with female characters who work hard, are vital members of their teams, can take on and defeat male characters in a fight, and actually get a lot of screen time!
...
I won’t lie – I teared up at that scene. It was the first time I saw two powerful women in an anime share an intimate student/teacher moment, and it was truly impactful. It reminded me of something that could have happened between Naruto and Jiraiya, and what I wish we could have seen between Sakura and Tsunade or even Hinata and Kurenai.
Moments like this provide the audience with a greater understanding of and connection to a character, and it’s unfortunate and telling that they almost exclusively happen with male characters. In that moment, we saw Mereoleona and Noelle not as love interests for the main character, not as sex objects, not as helpless damsels, not even as fierce but one-dimensional warriors, but as fully articulated people. They were simply two women sharing a powerful moment completely unrelated to any of the men in the story.
That’s what makes Black Clover an unexpectedly ground-breaking show. Instead of portraying its female characters as walking airheaded stereotypes or cautious depictions of an archetypal “strong woman,” it simply treats them as people.
Black Clover has truly raised the bar for depictions of female leaders in shounen anime, and of female characters in general, as these solid portrayals are not just limited to women in leadership positions. Almost every single woman—Captain Charlotte, Mimosa, Charmy, Vanessa, Captain Dorothy, and even Fana, among others—is strong enough to win a fight against most of the boys; self-contained enough that even when they have questionably strong crushes, it doesn’t impair their judgement in moments of crisis; and well-rounded enough that they operate outside the needs and desires of the male characters.
Shounen anime has strong, inspirational messages of teamwork, personal excellence, and never giving up, and it’s exciting to see this become even more accessible to its many female fans. Despite the criticism I have of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, they still remain two of my absolute favorite anime and have given me many valuable lessons that continue to shape my life. Especially when compared to the female representation in contemporary shounen anime like One Piece, it’s clear that despite often falling short, Naruto made valuable advancements in portraying its female characters with fairness and respect. I’m happy to see that Black Clover has picked up where they left off and is helping propel the genre to a new level.
Representation in media matters. Not only does everyone deserve to see themself portrayed in a thoughtful, inspiring way, it’s time for those who have always seen themselves on screen to receive more insight into the lives, thoughts, and struggles of those who remain more marginalized in our world.

It's nice a person likes Black Clover.
What about Fairy Tail? If you go to the ranker list of The Best Female Anime Characters and click to list by women voters, the top 10 has 5 fairy tail girls. So do women like Fairy Tail? Is it possible women like this show because of scenes like this or this or this or this and it doesn't matter that Fairy Tail also contains boobs and fan-service?
(I linked some fight scenes up there, but I'm not an expert on what women like. It's possible Fairy Tail girls rank high on that ranker list because the show does something right with them outside of the fight scenes that women like, but if so I wouldn't know what scenes to link to. Levy is ranked 6th and she's not a fighter. And this character is 7th.)
Another datapoint: on The 30+ Best Shounen Anime Of All Time list Fairy Tail is 20th if you order by men, but click on women and its number 1.
A feminist analysis of Fairy Tail would probably call it problematic because it contains boobs and fan-service, but what if it is actually fine and harmless if Fairy Tail exists for the men and women who enjoy it?

2020.09.15 17:35 DreamOfE Filing with insurance for Dr. Hope Sherie (please help?)

I have BlueCross BlueShield NC and I want to get top surgery with Dr. Hope Sherie in Charlotte. I know they don't take insurance, and I've already had a consultation with them and got a quote (which is way higher than I was expecting or prepared for at $11,975.) If I don't file for reimbursement through insurance, I will be out of my entire savings plus about $2000 more from my partner.
I am looking at all the documentation I need, and insurance is extremely complicated (at least for me.) From what I can tell, I need prior authorization (aka preauthorization or prior review) to even be considered. But I can't figure out what documents I need for prior authorization. The document for reimbursement states that I need three letters, one of which I can get from my L.C.S.W. and the other from my physician, but the last has to be from the treating surgeon.
Does Dr. Sherie's office provide this? Online it says they will provide any codes or documentation you need to file on your own, but when I emailed them I got back the reply that, because they are informed consent, they don't require/request the information needed to complete the insurance letter. What does this mean?
Have any of you had surgery there and filed for reimbursement? Does she provide a letter? What are your experiences with this?

2020.09.15 17:17 sheppaa13 Looking for therapist recommendations!

Hi QCers! Happy Tuesday!
My partner is having some trouble finding a therapist in the Charlotte area who's currently accepting new clients. He doesn't have Reddit so I offered to post on his behalf.
Ideally he'd like to use his insurance but the resources they've provided have caused him more frustration than hope, and Atrium has him on hold for hours each time he calls, so we'd like some other options to look into.
We can pay out of pocket if need be. This post is really so we can learn about new therapists he will be comfortable talking with - we'll figure out the logistics later.
Here's what he's looking for:
"I’m looking for someone who is science driven, not religious, and queer friendly. Hard find in this state. I also like providers that integrate mindfulness and CBT and other modern treatments of that ilk."
Thank you so much for your help! ❤

2020.09.14 22:56 Ardilla3000 The girl who liked ice cream (request by u/Sprinkles-The Unicorn)

Young Elizabeth Afton went by the hand of her father, William Afton. Afton had a soft spot for his daughter, something that made his personality shift around her. Afton cared for no one except his little Elizabeth. The sign read "Circus Baby's Pizza World". It was her father's little project he had worked on with Henry Emily, his business partner, although his contributions were merely help with the endoskeletons and design concepts. Elizabeth liked Henry, he was like an uncle to her. They went inside the local, where there was a playground. Henry and his daughter, Charlotte, were waiting. "Take care of her," William said seriously, and Henry nodded solemnly. "Hi Charlie!" Elizabeth said brightly. Elizabeth was blonde, with bright green eyes and a red bow in her hair. She wore a pink dress and blue leggings, as well as red shoes with white socks. Henry, as always, wore a brown suit, with a tie and a checkered shirt underneath.
Charlie looked nervously at the newcomer with large brown eyes. Curtains of brown hair covered her face partially. "So, want me to braid your hair?" Elizabeth asked cheerfully. Charlie nodded and smiled, and Elizabeth took some rubber bands form her pocket and started to braid Charlie's hair. Behind them, they were watched by Afton's younger son. "Let's go see some animatronics!" Elizabeth said after having her hair braided by Charlie. She removed the braids and they went on their way to a stage room. "Dad said we shouldn't......." Elizabeth's younger brother said, but she snapped back "Don't be such a crybaby! We'll be okay!"
They watched some animatronics perform, and then Elizabeth said "Let's go see Circus Baby! Daddy made her for me!" "Um Elizabeth dad told us to not go with her," her younger brother said fearfully. But she ignored him and led Charlie to where the animatronic was standing. It was a large figure, a bulky two meter monstrosity. It resembled a clown, with two large red ponytails. The animatronic wore a red tutu, and in it's chest it had a small fan. It's plates were segmented, and the eyes were blue with long eyelashes. The cheeks were rosy. The shoes were like the ones of a jester. Charlie did not like the thing and stayed with Elizabeth's brother in the doorway, but she went in without them, and came up to it. "Hello child!" it said in a robotic and cheerful voice. Her arm opened and out was dispensed a cone of vanilla ice cream that had been kept frozen. "She should get away from it," Charlie said worriedly, and Elizabeth's brother nodded. "Have some ice cream!" the animatronic said, and Elizabeth reached out to it and picked it up, but as she did so, a large metal claw appeared from beneath chest-plates in the robot's stomach, and it said "Don't worry, that's just my ice cream scooper!" Elizabeth tried to run for it, but was snatched by the claw. "Elizabeth!" Charlie said, banging on the glass, and told the guard "Do something!" "Huh?" he said, chewing on something. He looked through the glass and tried to run into the room, but the claw held Elizabeth and dragged her into the robot's stomach, closing it's plates.
William Afton, as soon as he heard about the incident, went running towards Circus Baby's stage. "I told you to look after her!" he growled at Henry, but he said "I left them with a security guard!" They came to the room, but it was too late, just as they entered, Elizabeth was engulfed by the robot's claw. "You're fired!" Afton screamed at the guard, lifting him up by the shirt collar in rage. He snatched his badge and crushed it with his foot. "I'm truly sorry William we can pry her out of the robot just," Henry said. "I shall manage it myself, get out of my sight!" he said. They all went out in shock of the horror that had happened. Henry and Charlie went in their car, and none of them spoke a word about the accident. "Let's hope she survived," Henry said, getting out of the car when they reached their home. Charlie nodded. She wanted to cry, and did so when she got to her room.
Afton locked his son in the basement, and then he started punching the wall, crashing a chair into the ground. "Calm down dear we don't know if she's......." his wife started, but he growled at her and kept going on his fit of rage. "It's my fault," the younger Afton brother said, crying, and his brother, Michael, who was also in the basement tried to comfort him, instead of bullying him like he usually did. The two brother hugged each other, as their father kept crashing chairs around the house.

2020.09.14 19:00 TwixorTweet Independent Living

Does anyone on here solely live on their own without any concrete support? I'm really struggling in the wake of Covid and my disability hearing having my bicoastal Boomer parents around this year.
Back story, I have been some form of sick since I was two and yes, have a childhood trauma history as well. I have been advocating for support and care since I was child with minimal results. I went out on disability in 2010 following getting a persistent flu-like illness after a hiking weekend. I had been living with my mom and stepdad until I was financially independent to live in greater Boston. I was denied SSDI upon application and my folks saws this as a sign that I was capable of working. So I pushed myself to balance medical appointments with trying to apply for jobs. But people only saw my work gap. In this time I was diagnosed with PTSD and five types of tick-borne diseases.
After my partner fell into financial difficulty and moved with his parents to NC, I continued to try to apply for jobs thinking maybe a slower environment and new job could help me overcome my health. I got a contract job and moved to NC. The job ended and I continued to balance job seeking and the rejections for only a short time job in over two years plus the imbalance of education and "experience." My health got worse, but I tried living on my own since my partner was not able to live with me. I got diagnosed with Dysautonomia, fibromyalgia and fatigue issues in 2015.
My parents fed up with helping to fund my life despite me not being able to sustain work due to my health and the inability to get specialist care in Charlotte decided it was best for the family for me to move back to MA in 2017. It was a rush move and they expected I would find work since I would be closer to my care team. They would be bicoastal and fly out when needed and spend the summer with me.
The past three years, my health has ebbed and flowed, but I had to get on SSDI and it was not supported by my parents for a while. Eventually they saw the benefit and I had my hearing in August and was approved last week. I had been struggling living alone for almost two years now and they are demanding I move out before they leave (if no additional Covid problems in MA or CA) in November.
Problem is I have been struggling with my health for a while at higher than normal rates for about a year and in light of the hearing I was gotten worse both physically and mentally. My boyfriend is struggling with a traumatic back injury and the whole family is being treated for Covid. I haven't seen my friends and my parents are adding to my stress. Instead of coming together as a family and being smart with future planning I'm feeling more alone and guilty for being sick and not getting adequate services.
Today it was said that although they can't live with me, I might have to go with them back to CA and then drive back with them to my late father's family's house next May. Both times they see me being isolated in a room so that they can watch over me, but not be inconvenienced by my needs. Or else we quickly find a place here where I can be "independent." But again without appropriate support systems.
There is no talk about their aging and associated planning with their senior needs or estate planning, as I am an only child.
Last week I fell three times and had to go to the ER, and yesterday had to call urgent care due to extreme nerve and joint pain throughout my body. Despite contacting my care team, no direct care has been given since being released with no adjustments since the ER.
I feel like I will be incapable of living an independent life without help from my boyfriend or until my parents die. I grew up in nature rich settings which has been my only consistent comfort. My parents also like to discuss my personal poverty, but I "will be rich when they die."
All I need right now is love, empathy, agency and comfort as I learn to navigate life on SSDI in the middle of a pandemic. One that is directly affecting three people I love and that I am at a higher risk for. I know my mom is frustrated at my health, and the fact my folks had to care for a 99 y/o and my grandmother is living alone overseas at 95. That they want to enjoy retirement but can't because of family health needs.
But I don't know if it's safe for me to live alone. I also know it's unfair to put caretaking duties on a hypothetical roommate to whom I have no relationship. I also don't see the point of having a family home vacant for seven or more months and spend money on a rash decision purchase and insufficient support.
Sorry for the long vent. But I don't know how to navigate this and want to know if I am being unreasonable. After weeks of feeling unworthy to merely exist, I am trying to figure out what is best in the long run for my overall health and well-being. Thanks for reaching.

2020.09.14 16:05 ZandrickEllison Offseason Blueprint: It may feel like the sky is falling for the Milwaukee Bucks, but they're still in rare air right now

The playoffs continue to rage on, but there are 25 teams sitting at home with nothing to do but twiddle their thumbs, tinker with their fantasy football teams, and wait for next season to start.
For their sake, we wanted to look ahead with the next edition of the OFFSEASON BLUEPRINT series. In each, we'll preview some big decisions and make some recommendations for plans of attack along the way. Today, we're looking at the Milwaukee Bucks.
step one: plug your ears and get back to work
There's no getting around it: the 2019-20 playoffs were a disaster for the Milwaukee Bucks. This was a team that had been # 1 all year in terms of win record, SRS, defensive rating, etc. Consider this. Their +10.1 point differential in the regular season was the best in the entire NBA by a margin of 3.7 (next best was +6.4). That means their point differential was 58% better than the next closest team. Based on all that, losing 4-1 in the second round feels like an abject failure, regardless of whether Giannis Antetokounmpo was hobbled or not, and regardless of whether the Miami Heat were a "tough matchup" or not. Championship teams need to leap past those hurdles on their way to the finish line.
What's more concerning from Bucks' fans perspective is how familiar this all must feel. Forget Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (who won the title before his exit), because younger fans won't remember that period anyway. However, all of us can look around at recent history and feel some sense of deja vu.
Primarily, I'm thinking about LeBron James' first stint in Cleveland. The superstar landed on a small market, and lifted them into high-profile and contender status. In 2006-07, 22-year-old James led the Cavs all the way to the Finals, only to get swept 4-0 by the veteran San Antonio Spurs. After that, we naturally presumed that James and the Cavs would get better and better and eventually reach the promised land. And they did -- in the regular season. By 2008-09, LeBron James had become the league MVP, leading the Cavs to finish with a 66-16 record (best in the NBA.) That season, they lost a tough Conference Finals. The next season, James won MVP again, and the Cavs finished with the best record in the league again. Only this time, they got bounced in round TWO.
The Bucks are on that exact same trend. Giannis has won two MVPs in a row -- the Bucks have grabbed the # 1 seed two years in a row -- and they've disappointed in the playoffs two years in a row.
We all remember what happened after the Cavs' hit that roadblock -- LeBron James left the following year. Giannis isn't a free agent yet, but he theoretically could push for a trade, or he could simply wait until next offseason to fly the coop. We've already started to hear the whispers. Miami. Toronto. Golden State. If he wants to mimic LeBron James' career arc, he may be eyeing the Dallas Mavericks, their cap space, and their young international stars. It can be their own version of a super team: the Big III.
If you're a Bucks fan or executive, that fear should keep you up at night. That paranoia may be real.
But still, you can't live in the fear. You need to keep pushing forward, ignoring all the gossip, all the media rumors, all the instagram tea leaves. Even if some of it's real, you need to block it out. You have a job to do. Win. Championship-caliber teams and title chances don't come along very often in a league with 30 teams. Even if they just run it back, the Bucks have a chance to win the championship. Even if it's just for one more year, even if it's your own Last Dance, you strap on your dancing shoes and go for it.
After all, there's no Giannis trade that's going to make sense from a basketball perspective. If you lose Giannis (via trade or via free agency), you may never be in this position ever again. This is it. This is your chance. Be grateful that you even get one, because most front offices and coaching staffs don't.
step two: build a title machine, not a title team
When you're scared that your superstar may leave, there's a tendency to get desperate with "win now!" moves. The Cleveland Cavaliers did the same with LeBron James, adding players like old Ben Wallace and old Shaq. Didn't work.
There may be some temptation to do the same here, with names like Chris Paul already being thrown around. Presumably, the logic goes that if the Bucks win in 2021, then Giannis won't leave.
But we also have recent history to suggest that's not true either. The Toronto Raptors acquired Kawhi Leonard, won the championship, and still lost him in free agency. Players don't base their decisions around the past; they base decisions about what's best for their FUTURE.
By those standards, the Bucks need to be concerned. They've built the roster around Giannis, but it's a fairly old roster. Khris Middleton is still in his prime, but Eric Bledsoe is already 30 (and under contract for 3 more years.) Brook Lopez is 32 (and under contract for 3 more years.) Wes Matthews is 33, and George Hill is 34. This is a supporting cast that may have peaked, and may get worse and worse over time. Would Giannis want to sign a long-term contract with a team with diminishing returns around him?
With that in mind, the Bucks should only make a major trade if it yields a star in his 20s. No Chris Paul, no Al Horford. The ideal acquisitions for this team would be players like Bradley Beal (27 years old) or C.J. McCollum (28). Both of them can space the floor for Giannis, but also create their own scoring as well. Better yet, their skill sets should age well and keep them valuable for the next 4-5 years. If Giannis gave the greenlight (and signed on the dotted line), the Bucks could make a Clippers-PG3 esque move and mortgage their future drafts to acquire a star like that.
Realistically, that may be too high of a bar. They're the template, but they're likely out of the Bucks' price range in terms of assets. Other candidates that have been floated on the market include Buddy Hield (a super fit as a shooter), and Otto Porter (injury prone and expensive, but still effective as a 3+D player when healthy.) Jrue Holiday may be an intriguing option, although he'd technically break our rule because he just turned "30" in June. Still, Holiday is a great guy and a versatile defender, so he may be worth betraying our bolded mandate.
step three: no weak links allowed in the machine
We've been taught through history lessons and Michael Jordan mythology that the best player in the NBA is supposed to win the title, no matter what. Alas, it's nearly impossible in today's climate for a superstar to win a championship without a great supporting cast. Either you need a superstar teammate, or an incredibly balanced roster around you.
The Bucks have a very good supporting cast, but it's probably a little shy of title worthy. The shooting guard position is a potential weak link.
Current starter Wes Matthews is a tough dude who fits the 3+D profile, but his 3 and his D ain't quite what it used to be. He still fights admirably, but he's approaching 34 and saddled with a lot of mileage and injury history. This season, he struggled to find his rhythm offensively, registering a 54.7% true shooting. That's actually not a bad number on its own, but it was the lowest among the Bucks' top 10 rotation players.
With Matthews aging, the hope is that 23-year-old Donte DiVicenzo can step up and grab hold of that mantle. That's still up in the air. DiVicenzo has virtues: good athleticism, good energy, solid defense, but he's still developing his shot and learning to play under control. It may be a leap of faith to presume that he'd be ready to start for a title team next season. Meanwhile, Pat Connaughton is OK, but he's a free agent and wouldn't be any great shakes himself.
Presuming we don't land a great trade, what do we do here? The options may be limited, given the lack of cap space and movable trade assets.
The Bucks may need to find a place-holder again until they're confident that DiVicenzo can play 25-30 minutes a night. You may be able to find a decent stopgap in the trade market: someone like Terrence Ross (ORL), or Reggie Bullock (NYK), or Jeremy Lamb (IND).
The New Orleans Pelicans would intrigue me as potential trade partner, given their abundance of riches (and question marks) at the guard position. They'll have Jrue Holiday and Lonzo Ball under contract, as well as promising combo guards like Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Josh Hart. Those latter two may be great options for the Bucks' long-term approach. If "short term" is the goal, then you'd have to consider J.J. Redick as well. The defense and age are issues, but Redick still lit it up to the tune of 45% shooting from 3 this year. Platooning Redick and DiVincenzo isn't a terrible option. And hell, let's throw one more Pelican into the mix. If I ran the Bucks, I'd try to sign free agent E'Twaun Moore, an underrated 3+D player who got lost in the shuffle this season. Moore has enough length to play the 2 or 3, and could soak up 25 minutes for the team. Adding more competent wings would also give the team some flexibility in their lineups and rotations to go big or small as they please.
step four: if all else fails, embrace organic farming
Let's say the Milwaukee Bucks don't acquire a third star. Let's say they don't land an upgrade on the margins either. Let's say they have to enter 2020-21 with this exact same roster. If that's the case, they're still likely going to win 50+ games, still likely going to be a threat to make the Finals. It's not the end of the world by any stretch.
However, if the Bucks can't shake up or tweak their roster, then they're going to have to rely more on internal improvements. We already mentioned Donte DiVincenzo as a major piece of the future and a potential starter down the road. It'd be great if we could see that trajectory for PF D.J. Wilson as well. After doing nothing as a rookie, he started to find some footing as a sophomore (playing 18.4 minutes a night.) But instead of improve again, he took a sizable step back.
If Wilson can shake it off and get back on schedule, it would be very helpful for the team. PF Marvin Williams is retiring, and PF Ersan Ilyasova is 33 years old himself. It's imperative that the Bucks find a capable stretch PF for the future, not only to back up Giannis at the 4 but also to play alongside him when he slides over to the 5.
This draft may also represent an opportunity to add a rotation player. The Bucks will have Indiana's draft pick -- # 24 overall. It's not likely to yield a star, but they should be able to find a contributor.
Let's take a look at some names to file away. Tyrell Terry (Stanford) is a smaller guard, but he's an elite shooter (41% from 3, 89% from the FT line.) Perhaps he can be our C.J. McCollum -- or at least, our Seth (not Steph) Curry off the bench. Terry's ranked in the 20s, but some sites like The Ringer have him a lot higher (# 9 for them.) Speaking of potential sleepers, I'd be intrigued by PF/C Killian Tillie (Gonzaga). He's also a top notch shooter for his position. He's limited in terms of defense and durability, but playing next to Giannis can cure a lot of problems. I also like SF Robert Woodard II (Mississippi State), a 6'7" wing with 3+D potential.
Regardless of who the Bucks take, they need to show that they can develop him well. As we've mentioned numerous times, this is an older supporting cast that will slowly decay. Replacing those talents with competent rotational players will be key to sustaining the team's success.
step five: have a Plan B, C, D and E in your back pocket
Coach Mike Budenholzer has gotten a lot of flak for his playoff performance, and there's validity to that criticism. Throughout his career, Bud has done a lot better in the regular season than the postseason. He's gotten spanked too many times, losing 3-4 games in a row in a fashion that shouldn't happen for a high-level coach. At times, he appears to be a step slow to adjust, freezes, and watches the train roll over him.
In some ways, I wonder if the Bucks were a victim of their own success here. They've been SO GOOD in the regular season that they've never seemed to need a Plan B. They can lock you down on D, use those transition opportunities to score at will, and dominate the game so easily that Giannis can check out and eat gyros by the 4th quarter.
However, we can see the pitfalls of that when teams slow down their typical gameplan, and cause the Bucks to scramble for new looks. Does this team have the ability to counter-punch?
One potential wrinkle I'd be curious to see is whether they'd be more effective in playoff games with Eric Bledsoe coming off the bench. While George Hill is old, he's still a good 3+D player who can hold the fort at PG. In fact, he's a better shooter and spacer than Bledsoe. For his part, Bledsoe is more of a playmaker and wrecking ball who could theoretically have more freedom and more impact in leading a second unit.
Is that the answer? Is going small the answer? Is playing Giannis closer to 40 minutes (in the playoffs) the answer?
I dunno. But I'm not paid to know. And I'm not expecting Coach Bud to have all the answers right now. But from what we've seen, the team needs to be more willing to throw some potential solutions at the wall and see what sticks rather than allowing themselves to get stomped out of another playoff series. Because if this happens again, they may as well call up United Airlines and get the blond flight attendants ready, because Giannis will be flying out of here.

2020.09.12 00:13 smsussma BEWARE: DO NOT download the "Curio" dating app!

A little over a year ago my girlfriend, Charlotte Campbell, died in a fiery head-on collision with a drunk driver. As DD of the night, she was coming home from a college party after dropping off a few friends, when her tiny 2016 Toyota Camry was blindsided by an 18-wheeler driving on the wrong side of the highway. By the time police arrived at the scene, Charlotte’s body was charred and burned beyond recognition.
Turns out the guy’s BAC was .13. He’ll be in prison for life and I’ll never see my girlfriend again. The only thing that seemed to survive the crash besides the degenerate who killed her, was the relationship bracelet that I surprised her with on our 4 year anniversary. It was the left half of a heart in rose gold with her initials engraved into it, while mine was a matching piece that fit into hers like a deciphered puzzle. Her remains were cremated in an urn and buried in a plot at Saint Agatha Memorial Cemetery. The bracelet went with her, so that she always has a piece of me wherever she went.
A year later, after graduating college, I got my first job, and rented out my first home. I was still completely confused by my girlfriend’s sudden death. It’s mainly the irony of it all that seemed incredulous. My girlfriend was never a heavy drinker to begin with and was always smart behind the wheel. So, it seemed all too unsettling that her life was taken by a drunk driver. I eventually concluded that some things can never be fully explained. Constantly obsessing and overanalyzing Charlotte’s death was counterproductive and stalled the recovery process.
One night, a tinge of horniness swept over me. I hadn’t had the emotional capacity to date or have sex in over a year. That desire in me remained dormant. With this sudden wave of horniness came guilt. Guilt that I was craving sex without Charlotte, guilt that I was craving romance in my life without her, and guilt that I may be ready to start seeing other people. I was pretty hesitant about the idea at first but decided that maybe, it was time? Maybe, I was using my girlfriend’s death as an excuse to shield me from the fear of falling in love again and the potential grief of ever losing that person.
I decided to start small, something with no strings attached and required minimal emotional investment. I had never used dating apps before but quickly opened up to the idea. That night, while looking into some dating apps to download, I got an email notification about an app called “Curio.” Puzzled, I clicked on it. The email read, “Welcome to Curio! Are you CURIO-us to meet that special someone? Click the link below to download our free dating app.”
Again, I didn’t know too much about dating apps besides the standard Tinder and Bumble, so I decided to give this one a go. I clicked on the link, which redirected me to the app store to download. Its icon was a black square with a peculiar red “C” in its center. I double tapped on it and moments later I found myself filling out basic questions about myself. My name, my age, I even spent about 10 minutes digging through my camera roll to find six solid pictures of myself. Upon searching, I discovered a few old photos of Charlotte and I, that I had completely forgotten about.
Some of these included: a picture of us in straw hats and leis during our spring break trip to Cancun, a picture of us kissing in front of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, and a picture of us in matching USA tees during a beer olympics game, junior year. That picture in Cancun brought back a vivid memory of us coming back to our hotel that night, belligerently drunk, and calling ourselves the “Tequila twins.” From then on, before going to any event involving alcohol, we would say to each other, “The Tequila Twins are back at it again!”
The nostalgia was all too fleeting. To avoid tearing up, I quickly rounded up a few solo pictures to post on my profile. Moments later, I was presented with some profile cards. Most of the women on this app were pretty average looking, 6’s at best. I was continuously swiping left for a while before I gave up and decided to maybe try again tomorrow. It was getting pretty late and I needed to be up early for work the next morning.
To my surprise, I received a notification from Curio the following day that read, “Congratulations! You have a new match.” I was slightly confused by this, namely because I had no recollection of swiping right on anybody last night. However, I was pretty tired and assumed that I could have easily swiped right on somebody without even paying attention. Curious to see who this mystery woman was, I double tapped on the notification and was redirected to her profile.
However, I was horrified to see that this woman appeared to be a carbon copy of Charlotte. Upon further examination, this person appeared to share her same name and age as well. Hastily, I surveyed her profile and skimmed through her photos with a quickness. As these pictures became very familiar to me, my face grew hot with anger.
What sicko creates a fake profile of a dead person? I thought to myself.
Before I could message this asshole my two cents, I was interrupted by the user.
“Hey :)” they said.
“Whoever is doing this, please take this profile down immediately! You think this is funny??? What kind of fucking psychopath does something like this?” I shot back.
“Cam, it’s me :) Char.”
I could feel my heart throbbing out of my chest as beads of sweat spawned across my forehead.
My hands shook as I messaged back, “Please, fucking stop this now!”
“But I miss my tequila twin :((((”
At this point, I could barely breathe. I felt myself numbing out of reality as a sudden ringing in my ears took over my senses.
“Who the fuck is this?!”
“Cam, it’s me. Char! Please talk to me, babe :[”
Instantly, I shut off the app. I was so caught up in the madness of it all that I hadn’t realized that I was running late for work. I quickly threw on some clothes and rushed out of the house, writing off this mishap as some sick, twisted, joke.
As I arrived to work 10 minutes late, I was chastised by my verbally abusive manager for my tardiness.
“This is the second time this month, Cameron! Don’t let it fucking happen again!” he spat.
“Yes, sir.” I muttered, returning to my desk in a huff.
“Ahh don’t take it personally, man.” comforted my co-worker, Rob. “Big Ted’s just angrier than usual because of the um....divorce.” he whispered.
“Divorce?” I scoffed. “Isn’t he on his like, third wife already?”
“Fourth, actually.” Rob corrected. “First wife, cheated. Second wife got deported back to Russia. Third wife had a heroin overdose. And I think this one was just a rebound tired of his shit.”
“I hate corporate America.” I jeered, turning on my desktop. “By the way, have you ever heard of that new dating app, Curio?”
“Nope, I’m more of a Tinder type of guy. But now I’m...CURIO. HA, get it?! Curio...curious?” Rob joked.
I chuckled nervously while scrolling through my work email, hoping that my corporate job would calm me down and take my mind off of things. As I refreshed my inbox, a new email appeared from Curio about how I received another notification from the app. Again, I was a little confused about how this app somehow got access to my work email and was sending me notifications through it. Hesitantly, I clicked on the notification which revealed a picture message from “Charlotte.”
It was a photo of my back porch with a note that read: “The new place looks great...without me :/ We were supposed to move in together. Left a little gift at your door since you don’t want to talk to me anymore...”
While reading that note, I could feel my heart picking up speed as a wave of anxiety crashed over me. Clumsily, I stumbled right out of my desk chair and backed away from my computer in horror. As I fumbled around the floor for support, Rob helped me back up on my feet.
“Whoa, you okay man? You don’t look so good.” Rob asked, concerned.
“I-I gotta go, it’s an emergency.” I replied. Quickly, I shut off my desktop and rushed out of the building with fear in one hand and my jacket in the other. The ride to my house seemed to drag on forever. Yet, by the time I parked into my driveway my heart was thumping wildly out of my chest and I would do anything to be right back in my office.
I grabbed an old baseball bat from my trunk, and slowly approached the front porch. I was surprised to find the door still locked. Nonetheless, I searched every nook and cranny of my house for any intruders and thankfully, I was alone. Everything appeared exactly as I had left it and nothing was stolen.
I took a deep breath and laughed a bit. I couldn’t believe that I was allowing some internet troll to drive me nuts.
My location on the app is on, they could’ve easily discovered my location on Google Maps, taken a screenshot of my back porch, and sent me that message to try to mess with me. I reasoned.
Thus, I decided to return back to work and locked up on my way out. As I exited my home through the back porch, I was interrupted by a light crunching noise beneath my foot. I paused and lifted the heel of my shoe to discover a shimmering object dangling from it. After retrieving this mysterious object, my heart sunk upon closer examination.
It appeared to be a rose gold bracelet with the left half of a heart swaying from it, and the initials “C.C” engraved into the pendant. I twisted my wrist, revealing the matching piece. I suddenly realized that I hadn’t taken it off since the funeral. I fit my half of the pendant into the other piece, revealing a perfectly mended heart. Dazed and confused, I shook my head and abandoned the bracelet as quickly as I retrieved it. It landed back onto the doormat as I rushed back to my car with tears in my eyes.
Swiftly, I reached into my back pocket for my phone and aggressively began typing out a message to “Charlotte.”
“Please tell me who the fuck this is, right now?!”
I received a reply back in seconds.
“Cam, why are you mad at me? :( I miss you so much and this is how you treat your girlfriend?”
“This isn’t fucking funny! I’m filing a report.”
Quickly, I reported the account for “false identity”, unmatched the user, and deleted the app from my phone, altogether. I ended up crying in the front seat of my car for a bit before mustering up the strength to drive back to work. Luckily, Big Ted was out for the rest of the day at a press conference. So, I didn’t have to suffer any consequences for running out of the building with no explanation.
By the end of the day I felt pretty weighed down by stress and grief that I ended up passing out on my couch for a few hours. I was eventually woken up by the melody of my mobile ringtone. I checked my lockscreen for the caller ID, which displayed Rob’s contact.
I picked up and yawned into the speaker, “Hey, man. What’s up?”
“Yo, Cam! Hope I’m not interrupting anything, was just wondering what the name of that dating app was that you were talking to me about earlier?” he asked. “I’m getting so tired of these same old bullshit apps.”
I stretched a bit and scratched my head. As I perched myself up on the couch, I replied, “Yeah, it’s called ‘Curio.’ C-U-R-I-O.”
There was a brief pause as Rob quietly echoed the spelling into the speaker while tapping away into the app store search bar.
“Hm...that’s weird.” he said.
“What?” I asked.
“Can’t seem to find it anywhere. You sure I got the spelling right?”
“Yeah, it’s C-U-R-I-O. Curio.” I repeated.
“Hm. Yeah, bro. Can’t seem to find it anywhere. No worries, though. This phone’s pretty old. Could just be a glitch or something. Anyway, I’ll see you tomorrow. Sleep tight!”
Suddenly, I was stricken with curiosity and began searching up the app on Google. Something, I probably should’ve done much sooner. I was surprised to find absolutely no information on the app, despite constantly receiving emails from the company and having downloaded it onto my phone. I even tried different variations of spelling and keywords to no avail. Defeated, I dragged myself up to bed and found solace in the fact that Curio wasn’t my problem anymore.
Yet, I was horrified to discover the app reinstalled onto my phone the next morning. I had also received another “Congratulations! You have a new match.” notification. After double tapping on the alert, I was redirected to the profile of my match. My face hardened and lost its color after realizing who it was. I had somehow rematched with “Charlotte” overnight.
“How?” I muttered to myself. Moments later I received a video message from the user with a note. As I squinted my eyes to get a better look, it appeared to be a video of my dimly lit room. The camera quality was terrible but whoever was filming approached my bed at such a distance, that the light of their camera flash fully illuminated the side of my face as I was sleeping in my bed last night.
Beneath it, the user wrote, “You’re so handsome when you sleep ;)”
At this point, It felt as if I was losing touch with reality. It was time to take this matter to authorities. I sped to the police station before work and after arriving, I aggressively slammed my phone down in front of two officers at the front desk.
“Hi, I believe I am being stalked by someone pretending to be my dead girlfriend on a dating app.” I blurted.
The two officers exchanged befuddled looks before one of them spoke up. “Slow down, son. Can you tell me your name and what app you’re even talking about?” he asked.
“Yeah, My name’s Cameron Hill. My girlfriend, Charlotte Campbell, passed away a little over a year ago and somebody on this app, ‘Curio’ is harassing me and pretending to be her. I think they know where I live. They’ve been sending pictures and videos of me, as well as the inside and outside of my house.” I replied, sternly. I unlocked my phone for them and opened the app.
Both officers narrowed their eyes as they inspected the screen for a few moments.
“You ever try Tinder, kid?” chuckled one of them—a stocky man who was suffering from a pretty extreme case of premature balding. I didn’t laugh. The goofy expression on his face faded rather quickly.
“Yeah, I don’t know what’s going on here but this app keeps freezing up and closing before I can even see anything.” said the other officer—a better looking version of his partner.
“You probably don’t have nothing to worry about, though. Usually these type of cyberbullying scenarios end up being carried out by a bunch of punks behind the scenes.”
I narrowed my eyes at him. “Cyberbullying? Sir, with all due respect. I believe that I am being stalked and hunted.”
“Listen, kid. If you experience any more threats, you have our number.”
I glared angrily at both of them, before snatching my phone and storming out of there. A complete waste of my time. I arrived at work five minutes late and received yet another verbal beating by my boss.
“You’re so fucking unqualified for this job, it isn’t even funny. If it weren’t for your rich ass father buying your way into every opportunity in life, you would be living on the streets. Lately, you’ve been offering absolutely nothing to this company. STOP SHOWING UP LATE!” he spat. I grit my teeth and forced a calm response, “Yes, sir. Won’t happen again.”
Luckily, work flew by and I was home before I knew it. Lately, the mental exhaustion of my life put me to sleep on my couch as soon as I got home. However, I found myself waking up a few hours later to a Curio message notification from “Charlotte.”
“It’s been three days, Cam. I miss you so much :/ Can we please meet up tonight?” she asked.
I then offered a speedy reply. “I don’t know who this is...But Charlotte Campbell, the person who you are impersonating is dead. Gone. Buried at Saint Agatha’s Cemetery miles and miles away from here. Now please, leave me alone.”
I then closed my eyes and massaged my temples for a few moments before my phone buzzed again. It was a much more grim message this time.
“You have until 9 PM tonight to come find me, or I’ll drag you to Hell with me.”
Once again, that wave of anxiety and dread swept over me as my heart thumped out of my chest. I took a second to think, before pulling out Google. I attempted to do a second search into the app where I was left with no answers. I then went back into my email and discovered that the original sender was anonymous and out of my domain. I even attempted to email this anonymous sender. However, the message failed and was apparently an “invalid email address.”
As I reexamined the first email, featuring the Curio ad, I noticed some very fine print at the bottom of the email, which read, “If your CURIO-sity is fulfilled. Please, pass this message along to another friend who lost a lover ❤️🖤We’re here to piece love back together.” I took a moment to think hard about what this all meant, but by the end of the night I had a feeling that I wouldn’t be hearing from “Charlotte.” ever again.
I woke up the next morning, very much alive and not in Hell. When I checked the lockscreen of my phone, all notifications from Curio had ceased and the app had somehow been wiped clean off of my phone, including any emails sent about them. It was as if the app had never even existed.
I arrived at work in high spirits and surprisingly, so did my boss. He even apologized for yelling at me the past few days and saying all of those mean things. He said that we have to, “Hold on tight to those who are there for us and to never take them for granted.” Since that day, nobody has seen him since. There was no formal goodbye or leave of the company. Theodore McClow, or “Big Ted” as we called him in the office, has been missing for months and hasn’t been found since that day.
Since then, I’ve moved to a different town with a different job. I’m much happier here and I’ve even met someone new without the help of dating apps. However, to anyone who gets an email about an app called “Curio.” PLEASE, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE APP. Do as the fine print says...
