2020.11.25 18:00 Glum-Ad-6576 Sharing my deets from my surgery yesterday

First of all, love and gratitude to you all. The night before my surgery I posted I was full of fear and several of you offered words of encouragement which I read over and over, including when I was in the waiting room.
My surgery was scheduled at 9:30 and we got started pretty much on time. I am very pleased with the surgeon and surgery center I chose, I thought they were extremely well organized with information and telling me what to expect. They told me to stay on a particular protocol for pain management for a few days even if I’m not in pain. I was told staying ahead of it is much better.
So I wouldn’t say I’ve had much pain. I would say discomfort—a 3 out of 10.
I had never had surgery of any kind before but I was shocked that I wasn’t that nervous. I felt I was in excellent hands with these tried and true professionals. I have a history of being rather controlling when it comes to...well,everything. And I told the anesthesiologist I wanted a LMA instead of being intubated (I had read it was easier on the throat afterward.) He didn’t say no, but I could tell it would not have been his choice. He started explaining, then I just said...”you know, do what you think is the right choice.”
After the usual prep, I walked to the OR, very nice, seemed state-of-the-art. I laid on the table and the anesthesiologist said he was giving me a margarita...just as I was starting to feel that...I was gone. No counting down from 10. I do think I dreamt during it however. As everyone reports, the next thing I remember is the nurse talking to me. Don’t remember much except her telling me everything went well. Next thing I know I was getting dressed and my partner picking me up. I was still pretty out of it and slept on and off most of the day.
One small complicaton I did have was I could not pee. I had been drinking water all day and nothing was happening. Around 10 pm I started getting really worried, it had been more than 12 hours since I peed. I surfed the internet for info and of course it scared the f out of me cuz I have worst-case-scenario-itis. I called the nurse and she had some suggestions on how to help things along (did not work for me) but she told me that if I still couldn’t go to call in the morning and they would call in a prescription. I asked if I could go til morning without my bladder blowing up and she said yes, so that eased my mind. I fell into a wonderful sleep and woke up to pee at 3am!!! I think it may have been the first time I felt grateful for something I never gave any thought to.
I slept very well the rest of the night, working from home today, still somewhat fuzzy but that’s expected.
The very best suggestion I could give everyone is HAVE SOMEONE RELIABLE TO HELP YOU. I expected to be able to do much more for myself than I could in the first 24 hours. It is especially helpful if that person will keep track of what meds you need when.
Told my surgery team they could take photos and video for soc med (no face, please) and they were happy to hear that. I have found all that you have shared gave me the courage to finally go through with this!

2020.11.23 17:51 jms14b 2020-21 Texas Tech Red Raiders Team Preview (Long)

It's the first game week for the 2020-21 NCAA college basketball season, including No. 14-ranked Texas Tech and head coach Chris Beard who are ready to begin the 96th season in program history and get back to competition through all the challenges that the coronavirus pandemic has caused. Tech will open the season against Northwestern State at 6 p.m. on Wednesday (Big 12 Now on ESPN+) before also hosting Sam Houston State at 1 p.m. on Friday (ESPNU) in a pair of home games at the United Supermarkets Arena.
Despite challenges and disruptions that have been associated with COVID-19, social issues, not having a secret scrimmage, and no exhibition game, the Red Raiders have been focused throughout the extended offseason to be prepared for what's on the schedule and also what is not. Texas Tech, which advanced to the 2018 Elite 8 and 2019 NCAA Championship Final, was poised to make the NCAA Tournament for the third straight season for the first time in program history last season before it was canceled due to COVID-19. It's been an offseason unlike any other, assembling a team through Zoom recruiting and making adjustments on a daily basis, but the team is now ready to step up to the starting line and begin the 2020-21 season – fully expecting and embracing that there will be hurdles and other obstacles on the track.
"I have a lot of respect for the 14 players, coaches, and staff on this year's team," Beard said. "We talk a lot about 'Tough Times Pass, Tough People Last' and mental toughness every year, but this year is different. It's really something none of us could have prepared for with COVID 19. From our year being shut down last year, through recruiting a team without in-person visits to workouts being shut down from time to time, the amount of adversity we've already gone through has been challenging. Our guys have really executed what our plan has been through all this and have stayed focused through all the unknowns. We're living where our feet are and that's really all we can do right now."
THE RED RAIDERS: Texas Tech's roster is made of 14 players this season with seven returners and seven newcomers. Marcus Santos-Silva is the team's lone senior while the junior class is made up of Kyler Edwards, Avery Benson, Mac McClung, and Jamarius Burton. The sophomore class includes Kevin McCullar, Terrence Shannon, Jr., Clarence Nadolny, and Joel Ntambwe. Tyreek Smith is a redshirt freshman in a class that welcomes Chibuzo Agbo, Nimari Burnett, Micah Peavy, and Vladislav Goldin. Each player introduced themselves through the video series, DEFINE YOURSELF.
"We like our balance this season," Beard said. "It's as many returners as we've ever had with guys who were in our rotation. To have seven guys on our roster from last year is something we're hoping pays dividends this year. With the new players, we still stayed old with our transfers who can impact games from the first day."
The program returns two starters in Edwards and Shannon from last season, while McCullar started six games in Big 12 play. Off last year's team, starters Davide Moretti, TJ Holyfield, and Jahmi'us Ramsey left and are currently beginning professional careers. Ramsey led the team with 15.0 points per game and Moretti was second at 13.0 ppg., leaving the Red Raiders with 38.9 percent of their scoring back off last year's roster led by Edwards who averaged 11.4 per game.
SENIOR (1): Santos-Silva enters his first season at Texas Tech after playing his first three at VCU. Named the Big 12 Preseason Newcomer of the Year, Santos-Silva graduated from VCU this summer and arrived in Lubbock having already accumulated 828 points, 620 rebounds and 92 blocked shots through 97 games in his career. Beard said of Santos-Silva: "He's a guy that wants to get better and is working hard to get better. He's mature, experienced, and has thick skin to want the truth. He doesn't live in La-La Land. He understands what his strengths are and what he needs to improve on. I think it's our job to make sure he has his best year ever. He's a guy who holds himself accountable, wants his coaches to hold him accountable and his teammates accountable. He is respected enough already to hold other players accountable on our team. He's got the looks of a great leader and we have high expectations for him. It's hard being a leader and best player guy. He wants that responsibility."
JUNIORS (4): Benson is the only player on this year's team that was on the 2018 Elite 8 team and 2019 NCAA Championship finals team. A fourth-year player from Arkansas, Benson scored a career-high 10 points to help lead the Red Raiders to a win over No. 1-ranked Louisville in last year's Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden. Edwards is back for his third season after playing a reserve role in all 38 games as a freshman during the Final Four run and starting all games last year as a freshman. An Arlington native, Edwards averaged 11.4 points and 4.0 rebounds per game to go along with 95 assists. He's scored 562 points and has made 79 3-pointers through 69 career games. Edward said: "It's a competition every day with our team. No one is going to take a day off." The junior class includes Burton and McClung who both transferred in and both received NCAA waivers to play this season. Burton arrives after two years at Wichita State where he averaged 10.3 points and added 102 assists last season. A Charlotte, North Carolina native, he has racked up 228 assists and scored 530 points through 67 games in his career. McClung transferred to Texas Tech after he averaged 14.2 points, 2.2 assists, 1.1 steals, and 2.8 rebounds in 50 career games at Georgetown University. He was a two-time BIG EAST Player of the Week last season and is the all-time leading scorer in Virginia High School League history where he scored 2,801 points in his prep career. McClung averaged 15.7 points per game as a sophomore for the Hoyas. Edwards and McClung were both named Big 12 Preseason Honorable Mention selections.
SOPHOMORES (4): Shannon and McCullar highlight the sophomore class with both players returning from strong 2019-20 seasons. A Chicago native, Shannon averaged 9.8 points and 4.1 rebounds as a true freshman where he made 21 starts and played in 29 games. He scored a career-high 24 points at DePaul and secured a career-best 11 rebounds at Kansas. Shannon is on the Julius Erving Award Watch List for the top forwards in college basketball. McCullar is in his third season with the Red Raiders following a redshirt season during the historic 2018-19 season and then playing an important role last season on the court. He would finish his first season on the court by averaging 6.0 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, including scoring a career-high 15 points at Oklahoma State and grabbing a career-best 11 rebounds at Iowa State. McCullar started six games and played in 29 as a redshirt freshman. McCullar said: "I feel like it was just getting out there and getting experience and playing some. I just tried to build on every game. Being out there you grow more and more. Now I'm looking forward to this year because I can see the film I have from last year. Learn from those mistakes and things that I did good and build on that." Nadolny played in 24 games as a true freshman in a reserve role where he scored a career-high nine points against Houston Baptist. He averaged 2.0 points and 1.0 rebounds per game. Ntambwe transferred to TTU from UNLV and sat out last season. He averaged 11.8 points and 5.5 rebounds per game as a freshman at UNLV with a career-high 31-point performance against Wyoming. He started all 31 during the 2018-19 season and made 44 3-pointers with a 38.6 percentage. Ntambwe practiced with the Red Raiders last season.
FRESHMEN (5): There's a lot of optimism in this year's freshman class with Smith returning for his second season after redshirting last year along with a four-player true freshman class. Smith suffered an injury during the 2018-19 season that forced him to miss the season after he had averaged 17.9 points and 12.3 rebounds per game as a senior at Trinity Christian. A Louisiana native, Smith moved to the Dallas area in high school where he was named the TAAPS 5A Player of the Year as a junior and all-state honor as a senior. Burnett is the first McDonald's All-American to play at Texas Tech and the highest-ranked recruit in program history. A Chicago native, he played at Prolific Prep in California and he was also named to the 2020 Jordan Brand Classic, played for the USA in the 2019 FIBA 3x3 U18 World Cup, and participated in the USA Basketball Junior National Team Minicamp. Peavy earned TABC Class 6A Player of the Year honors as a senior at Duncanville High School where he averaged 19 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. He was named to the Jordan Brand Classic roster and was ranked second in Texas in the recruiting class. Peavy, who played for his father at Duncanville, helped lead his team to the 2019 Class 6A State Championship as a junior along with former Red Raider Jahmi'us Ramsey who was a senior on that team. Peavy was named the MVP of the State Championship game. Agbo is a sharpshooter from California who is coming off a senior season where he averaged 22 points per game at Saint Augustine High School in San Diego. He was a 4-star recruit who was his league's top player as a junior and the 2019-20 San Diego Preseason Player of the Year. Goldin is the tallest player on the roster this season, coming in at 7-foot-1 in his freshman season. The Russian forward played a season of prep basketball at Putnam Science before signing with the Red Raiders in the summer.
HEAD COACH: Chris Beard enters his fifth season as the Texas Tech head coach where he has led the program to a 94-44 record, including an 8-2 mark in the NCAA Tournament. Beard was named the 2018-19 Associated Press National Coach of the Year and earned Big 12 Coach of the Year in 2018 and 2019. An assistant coach at Texas Tech under Bob and Pat Knight, Beard has amassed an impressive 124-49 record as a Division I head coach that started with one season at Little Rock where he was 30-5. He also has head coaching stops at Fort Scott Community College, Seminole State, McMurry, and Angelo State in his collegiate career. Beard is the 17th head coach in Texas Tech history.
THE STAFF: Beard is assisted this season by associate head coach Mark Adams, assistant coaches Ulric Maligi and Bob Donewald, Casey Perrin (Chief of Staff), Sean Sutton (AdvisoPlayer Development), John Reilly (Strength & Conditioning), and associate athletic trainer Mike Neal. Adams is entering his fifth season on Beard's staff and also assisted him at Little Rock. A 1979 graduate of Texas Tech, Adams is a former head coach at Clarendon College, Wayland Baptist, West Texas A&M, Texas-Pan American, and Howard College. He earned 2019 TABC Assistant Coach of the Year and is a member of multiple halls of fame, most recently being inducted into the NJCAA's Men's Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame Class for 2020. Donewald is in his second season on the staff, but his first as an assistant. He has extensive experience in professional basketball and worked last season as the program's director of player development. Maligi is also in his second season on the staff and is widely respected as one of the top emerging assistants in the nation. He led the charge in the recruitment of this year's signing class which was the highest-ranked in program history. Reilly, a Killeen, Texas native who competed on the BYU Track & Field team, is also in his fifth season having led the strength and conditioning each year for Beard. Neal is in his second season, coming over from Little Rock where he played basketball and was the team's athletic trainer during Beard's year leading the program.
THE SCHEDULE: Along with the 18-round fight of home-and-away games against each Big 12 team, the Red Raiders will play nine non-conference games with shortened COVID guidelines. The Red Raiders open the year with a two-game home stand by hosting Northwestern State and Sam Houston State from the Southland Conference before meeting up with No. 17-ranked Houston on Sunday, Nov. 29 at the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth. Tech will then host St. John's in the Big 12/BIG EAST Alliance followed by games against Grambling, Abilene Christian, and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Tech opens Big 12 play by hosting No. 6 Kansas on Thursday, Dec. 17, and traveling to Oklahoma on Dec. 22. The team goes back into non-conference play with a game against Incarnate Word (Dec. 29) and plays its final non-conference game against LSU on Jan. 30 in Baton Rouge in the middle of the Big 12 schedule. The regular-season finale is scheduled to have Texas play at the USA on Saturday, Feb. 27 before the start of the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championships on March 10-13 in Kansas City.
EARLY TEST: The first game of the season away from Lubbock will be a highly-anticipated matchup within the state and nation with the Red Raiders playing Houston in Fort Worth. The Cougars are at No. 17 in the AP Rankings and are picked to win the American Athletic Conference. They are coming off a 23-8 overall record and were 13-5 in conference play. The Cougars advanced to the 2019 Sweet 16 with wins over Georgia State and Ohio State in the NCAA Tournament before falling to Kentucky by four in the third round. Houston leads the all-time series against Tech with a 28-27 advantage, including an 82-69 win in the last matchup on Dec. 23, 2014, in Las Vegas to snap a nine-game winning streak by the Red Raiders over the Cougars. The programs first matched up in 1961 with the Red Raiders earning a 69-67 win in Lawrence, Kansas. Tech is 7-3 against UH in neutral-court games.
UNCOMFORTABLE – BEARD EXPLAINS: "Being comfortable gets you beat every single time. You see it all the time in sports. You win a big game and the next time there's a letdown and a loss. We've all seen that. Life is the same way. You can have a great day at work and you could take the edge off. It takes a special person, we use the word 'elite', to remain uncomfortable. Coach Knight would talk a lot about when things were going good that we need to shake the tree from time to time. Everybody expects the best and have focus during times of adversity, but only the elite people can push themselves each day to stay uncomfortable. I think being uncomfortable is where growth comes from. Uncomfortable is what you have to be to compete in the Big 12. Our guys have embraced this. Each season we try to have a theme and with this year's group, we just feel that if we can stay uncomfortable we'll be where we need to be. We like our talent. We like our culture. If this team can keep pushing and not get too high or too low by staying uncomfortable right there in the middle, we think we have a great chance to grow."
AP RANKINGS: Texas Tech will go into the 2020-21 season ranked No. 14 in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll. The Red Raiders, who were ranked No. 13 in last season's AP Preseason Top-25 Poll and spent 12 weeks in the rankings, are one of five Big 12 teams in the preseason rankings. Gonzaga is the top-ranked team in the poll, followed by Baylor, Villanova, Virginia, and Iowa. The Big 12 also has Kansas at No. 6, West Virginia at No. 15, and No. 19 Texas.
USA TODAY COACHES POLL: Texas Tech is at No. 13 in the USA TODAY Top 25 Men's Basketball Coaches Poll which was announced on Thursday ahead of the 2020-21 season that is scheduled to begin in two weeks. The USA TODAY Sports men's basketball coaches poll is conducted weekly throughout the regular season using a panel of head coaches at Division I schools. The Red Raiders were ranked No. 12 in last season's first USA TODAY Coaches Poll. In this year's ranking, Baylor is the top-ranked team followed by Gonzaga, Villanova, Virginia, and Kansas. Tech is one of five Big 12 teams in the poll, including West Virginia at No. 15 and Texas which is No. 22.
BIG 12 PRESEASON POLL: Texas Tech was picked fifth in the 2020-21 Big 12 Men's Basketball Preseason Poll with Baylor at the top of the rankings as voted on by the league's head coaches. The Big 12 Preseason Polls began in the 1996-97 season with Tech being selected sixth. The Red Raiders were picked seventh in the 2018-19 preseason poll before going 14-4 to win their first Big 12 regular-season championship and were third in last year's preseason poll for their highest preseason ranking in program history.
BIG 12 PRESEASON AWARDS: Santos-Silva was named the Big 12 Preseason Newcomer of the Year while juniors Edwards and McClung are Big 12 Preseason Honorable Mention selections in the conference's preseason awards. Santos-Silva played the last three seasons at VCU where he was named NABC All-District Second Team and led his team in scoring (12.8), rebounding (8.9) and blocks (1.2). The senior forward also registered 10 double-doubles during the shortened season. Texas Tech boasts the preseason newcomer of the year in consecutive seasons as Chris Clarke grabbed the honor in 2019-20. Santos-Silva graduated from VCU over the summer and is the lone senior on this year's Texas Tech roster. Clarke and Charles Burgess (2006-07) are the only Red Raiders to be selected as the Big 12 Preseason Newcomer of the Year before Santos-Silva. Texas Tech has not had a Big 12 Newcomer of the Year in the postseason honors. Santos-Silva said: "I didn't come here for individual awards. I came here to win the Big 12 and win the National Championship. Awards and recognition are nice, but that's not my focus. I'm focused on team goals and success."
DR. TJ: Shannon has been selected as one of 20 players on the watch list for the 2021 Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year Award. Named after Class of 1993 Hall of Famer and 16-year professional basketball player Julius Erving, the annual honor in its seventh year recognizes the top small forwards in Division I men's college basketball. A national committee of top college basketball personnel determined the watch list of 20 candidates that was announced by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. A Chicago native, Shannon was named to the Big 12 All-Freshman Team last season after averaging 9.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. He started 21 of 29 games played and scored a season-high 24 points against DePaul and grabbed a career-high 11 rebounds at Kansas. Along with the watch list, Shannon has appeared in multiple 2021 NBA Draft projections.
COVID IMPACT: In an effort to ensure adequate levels of safety, Texas Tech will implement a reduced capacity to approximately 25% at The United Supermarkets Arena this basketball season. In addition to the limited seating capacity, fans will see the following safety protocols this season: Big 12 Conference has mandated an established perimeter around the playing surface – 20 feet behind both team benches and 12 feet on all other sides of the court. Face coverings for all patrons (fans and staff) will be required at all times. A 100 percent mobile ticketing process. Mobile ordering in our concession areas to decrease contacts throughout the concourse. Kirby Hocutt said: "Our staff has worked diligently to ensure we accommodate as many of our fans as possible at our home basketball games. We also want to ensure we offer a safe and enjoyable experience while being socially responsible."
A CONVERSATION PATCH: Texas Tech will have a patch on its jersey all season that was the idea of Kyler Edwards with collaboration from his teammates. The patch depicts a rotten apple core and is described by Edwards as: "The team wanted to make a patch that was unique and not just something that everyone else had. We want to get rid of all the bad apples in all walks of life, including police brutality, sexism, and racism. These are topics around the world and we have the support of our coaches. We need to keep talking about it until it gets fixed." The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved rules to allow student-athletes in all sports to wear patches on their uniforms for commemorative and memorial purposes, as well as to support social justice issues.
NCAA BOUND: The Red Raiders were projected to make their third NCAA tournament last season before the season was canceled due to COVID 19. Tech, which advanced to the 2018 Elite 8 and 2019 National Championship final, had never made the NCAA tournament three straight seasons in program history. The Red Raiders finished last season with an 18-13 overall record and were 9-9 in conference play.
ABRUPT ENDING: Texas Tech was on the Sprint Center in Kansas City court warming up for its first-round matchup of the Big 12 Championship against Texas on Thursday, March 12, 2019, when both teams were pulled off the court. With the tournament being canceled, the Red Raiders went to the airport and returned home to Lubbock. Before arriving back to Texas that afternoon by plane, news broke that the NCAA had canceled the remainder of the season.
COVID RINGS: While the 2019-20 season ended without the opportunity to play for any postseason championships, Beard wanted to show his appreciation to the players who battled throughout the year. Each player on the roster received a ring to commemorate the season, a token of respect from Beard who felt it was important that the players could keep remembering the season that was cut short.
NBA DRAFT: Texas Tech's Jahmi'us Ramsey was selected by the Sacramento Kings with the 43rd pick of the 2020 NBA Draft on November 18, 2020. An Arlington, Texas native, Ramsey earned Big 12 Freshman of the Year, All-Big 12 Second Team, NABC All-District First Team, Big 12 All-Newcomer Team, Big 12 All-Freshman Team, and was a three-time Big 12 Newcomer of the Week selection. Ramsey, who is the first Red Raider to earn Big 12 Freshman of the Year, finished the season fifth in the Big 12 in scoring and was second with a 42.6 percentage on 3-pointers and fifth with a 44.2 shooting percentage. Ramsey's selection in the NBA Draft gives the Red Raiders three straight years with a pick following Zhaire Smith (2018) and Jarrett Culver (2019). Tech has now had 25 players picked in the NBA Draft in its program history.
FIRST-ROUND STUDENTS: Zhaire Smith and Jarrett Culver remain Texas Tech students despite being drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft as underclassmen. Both are currently enrolled in online classes at TTU where they remain focused on graduating while also being in the early stages of their professional playing careers. Smith said: "It is very important to me to get my education while playing because graduating was my first goal before playing basketball. I also made a promise to my mom and Coach Beard that I will finish. It means a lot to have Coach Beard motivating me by saying that education is the key. It's going to mean a lot to my family to see me graduate because school is not easy at all for me. They are going to cry tears of joy when I finish."
MALIGI DRAWS ATTENTION: Maligi was recognized during the offseason as one of 40 coaches on ESPN's "40 Under 40" list which highlights the top young coaches throughout the national college basketball landscape and The Athletic's 40 Under 40 which identified influential people in a variety of roles within college basketball who are under the age of 40. Maligi is entering his second season with the Red Raiders and was identified at No. 13 by ESPN on the list of head and assistant coaches. In the ESPN article, Myron Medcalf highlighted Maligi who turned 36 on May 14 by saying: "The Howard University product has identified and recruited some of the most talented players in the state of Texas and beyond, as proved by successful tenures as an assistant with Texas A&M, SMU, and Stephen F. Austin before joining Chris Beard's staff before last season. By all accounts, Maligi possesses the attributes and leadership qualities necessary to one day guide a Power 5 program."
DOCUMENTING HISTORY: Over the summer ESPN aired "Eddie", a documentary about legendary college basketball coach Eddie Sutton. The film covered many aspects of Eddie Sutton's life, including his family. Sean Sutton, one of Eddie's sons, was featured in the film and is entering his fourth season working with Beard at Tech as the program's director of player development and Beard's advisor. Sean played for his father at Kentucky and Oklahoma State and also worked for him as an assistant coach before being named the head coach at OSU. Talking about the documentary, Sean said: "To open up and talk about some of the things that went on behind the scenes for the public to view, I wouldn't necessarily say it was easy, but it was important. It was important to get an accurate depiction of his life and career."
ON THE NBA SIDELINES: Tech legend Darvin Ham continues to rise among the ranks of NBA assistant coaches where he helped lead Milwaukee to the best regular-season record (56-17) in the NBA last season. Ham, who became an iconic player nationally by ripping down a rim in the 1996 NCAA Tournament and winning the 1996 NCAA Slam Dunk Contest, played in the NBA from 1996-2005 and was on the Detroit Pistons' 2004 NBA Championship team. Ham was an Atlanta Hawks assistant coach from 2013-18 and has been on the Bucks sideline since the 2018 season where he is the lead assistant. He recently completed his bachelor's degree, earning his Texas Tech degree in 2019 – 23 years after leaving Lubbock to begin his professional basketball career. Along with Ham, Max Lefevre is entering his second season with the Minnesota Timberwolves as the team's Video CoordinatoPlayer Development Associate. Lefevre was a graduate assistant for Beard at Angelo State and worked on his staff at Little Rock and for three seasons at Texas Tech.
BIG 12/SEC CHALLENGE: Texas Tech and LSU will meet for the second time in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge on Jan. 30, 2021, at the Maravich Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The eighth annual event will consist of 10 games as every Big 12 member faces 10 squads from the Southeastern Conference. The Red Raiders are 4-3 overall and 2-1 in Baton Rouge all-time against LSU. Tech has also played South Carolina, Auburn, Alabama, and Arkansas twice in the challenge. This will mark the sixth consecutive year for all games to be played in one day. ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNU will combine to televise the contests which also includes matchups of Auburn at Baylor, Iowa State at Mississippi State, Kansas at Tennessee, Texas A&M at Kansas State, Alabama at Oklahoma, Arkansas at Oklahoma State, TCU at Missouri, Texas at Kentucky and Florida at West Virginia. Texas Tech is 4-3 all-time in the Big 12-SEC Challenge after its 76-74 overtime loss to No. 15 Kentucky last season. The loss to the Wildcats ended a 54-game non-conference winning streak by the Red Raiders which was the second-best streak in the nation. Big 12 teams are 40-30 (.571) in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge after a tie in 2020.
BIG 12/BIG EAST ALLIANCE: The Red Raiders will host the Red Storm of St. John's on Dec. 3 in the second year of the Big 12/BIG EAST Alliance. Tech traveled to Chicago to play DePaul in the inaugural season of the matchups, dropping an overtime decision. The four-year agreement will continue through 2022-23 with an equal number of games played in each conference's home market each year. Texas Tech is 0-2 all-time against St. John's with the last matchup coming on April 1, 2003, in the NIT in New York.
HALL OF FAME SELECTION: Ronald Ross was selected for the 2020 Texas Tech Hall of Fame class during the offseason. Ross remains one of the beloved greats in the history of Texas Tech men's basketball as the former walk-on helped lead the Red Raiders to three NCAA Tournament appearances, including their first-ever trip to the Sweet 16 in 2005. Ross, a native of nearby Hobbs, New Mexico, was an All-Big 12 first-team selection and an All-American by Basketball Times as a senior after averaging 17.5 points per game, 5.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.6 steals per game under head coach Bob Knight. Ross also established the single-season and career school records that year by recording 86 steals, pushing his career total to 204 over 132 games. He served as a graduate assistant the past two seasons under Beard following a professional career overseas.
CONTINUED IMPACT, DREAM COURT: Nancy Lieberman Charities teamed up with Texas Tech University and The Culver Foundation to give the City of Lubbock a brand new Dream Court. The new Dream Court is located at Duran Park in Lubbock. This court will serve as a safe play space for youth in the community to interact with friends, family, and local law enforcement. "I am so excited for the Red Raiders, Jarrett Culver, and the City of Lubbock to partner with Nancy Lieberman Charities to honor our beloved, Andre Emmett. We all deeply miss him and want his legacy to live on forever in the lives of people who were touched by his genuine kindness." Basketball Hall of Famer, Nancy Lieberman said. The Dream Court™ is 50-by-84 feet with two brand new basketball goals and features a high-performance PowerGame™ surface from Sport Court® in signature Texas Tech red and black colors. Its centerpiece is the Dream Courts logo, flanked by the brands of all supporting organizations. Emmett, who is Texas Tech's all-time leading scorer, was murdered in 2019. A dedication ceremony was held on Friday, October 23.
DFW PRESENCE: Every year Beard looks forward to the trip to play TCU, not only to compete against the Horned Frogs but also to reconnect with the Red Raider fan base in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. This season, even though the challenges we'll all face in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the program is excited about traveling to the area three times with the addition of non-conference games in Fort Worth and Frisco on the schedule. Beard said: "The DFW market is obviously very important to our program. Many of our players and coaches currently and throughout the years grew up there and we have a huge fan and alumni base there that shows up for us every year. To play non-conference games in the area has been an objective of mine since we started and I'm really excited that we're getting it done twice. These types of games are something that I'm going to be committed to for years to come because of how important we think the Metroplex is to our program." The Red Raiders are scheduled to play their third game of the season on Sunday, Nov. 29 against No. 17-ranked Houston in the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth and will also take on Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Dec. 12 at the Comerica Center in Frisco. The final trip will be their Big 12 clash against TCU on Jan. 20, 2021.
PLAYING IN THE USA: Texas Tech Athletics announced an extension of the current naming rights agreement to United Supermarkets Arena as the grocery chain will remain the facility's namesake through 2035. Texas Tech will receive an additional $16 million over the course of the agreement, which continues the long-standing partnership between the university and United Supermarkets. The West Texas-based chain has now committed more than $30 million to Texas Tech Athletics since securing the original naming rights to the 15,000-seat arena in 1996. United provided Texas Tech with a key $10 million investment that jumpstarted fundraising efforts for the arena, opening in 1999 as United Spirit Arena. In 2014, Texas Tech and United extended their original agreement for $9.45 million. The second extension will ink the relationship until 2035.
IT'S ACADEMIC: Beard announced the hiring of Jamaal Scott as the program's Academic Advisor on July 7, 2020. An experienced educator and athletics leader following a decorated playing career which includes being named the 2000 Arizona Gatorade Player of the Year, Scott will provide the Red Raider program personal, vocational, educational, and advanced counseling and training at both the individual and group levels. Scott is pivotal in the management of academic advising for the men's basketball program by assisting with course selection to ensure degree progress and completion along with serving as the contact between student-athletes and the coaching staff regarding academic progress. Scott is a graduate of the University of Richmond where he played for the Spiders from 2002-05 and was an Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference Team selection and a two-year team captain.
A GROWING TREE: Brian Burg was named the head coach at Georgia Southern over the summer to add to the growing list of former Beard assistant coaches who have been hired as head coaches. Burg, who joined forces with Beard at Little Rock, would work on his staff for four seasons at Texas Tech where the program reached new heights by advancing to the 2018 Elite 8, winning the 2019 Big 12 regular-season title, and then reaching the 2019 NCAA Championship final. Burg is now entering his first season as a head coach at Georgia Southern and hired Tim MacAllister (former Tech Chief of Staff) as an assistant. Along with Burg, Chris Ogden is now entering his fourth season as the head coach at UT Arlington after being an assistant at Tech under Beard. Wes Flanigan was the first Beard assistant to land a Division I head coaching job, being named the Little Rock head coach after Beard left the Trojan program. Flanigan is currently an assistant at Auburn. Along with Division 1 coaches, Cinco Boone is the head coach at Angelo State (DII), a position he's held for six seasons after being Beard's assistant there for two years and at McMurry for one.
TYSON SIGNS: Beard announced the signing of Jaylon Tyson to his national letter of intent for the 2021-22 academic year. A 6-foot-7 guard/forward from Allen, Texas, Tyson is a senior at John Paul II High School where he helped lead his team to its first-ever Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) state championship last season. A four-star recruit by ESPN, Rivals, and 247Sports, he earned TAPPS All-State first-team honors as a junior after averaging 24.4 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. ESPN currently lists Tyson as the seventh-best recruit in the state of Texas and 18th by the small forward position. 247Sports puts Tyson at No. 4 in Texas, while Rivals has him as the No. 34-ranked player nationally. Tyson signed on November 11, 2020.
RED RAIDERS IN THE PROS: Jarrett Culver (Minnesota – NBA), Jahmi'us Ramsey (Sacramento – NBA), Matt Mooney (Cleveland – NBA), Tariq Owens (Phoenix – NBA), Zhaire Smith (Philadelphia – NBA), Keenan Evans (Hapoel Haifa – Israel), Davide Moretti (Olimpia Milano – Italy), Norense Odiase (Brose Bamberg – Germany), Brandone Francis (Gipuzkoa Basket – Spain), TJ Holyfield (Kauhajoki Karhu – Finland).
RECENT GRADS: A pair of our No. 22s are now Texas Tech graduates. Despite different academic paths and life timelines, Jarrius Jackson and TJ Holyfield shared a milestone on August 8, 2020, as the former Red Raiders (both wore 22 during their playing days) received their diplomas in a virtual ceremony. Jackson, who played from 2004-07 and then enjoyed a successful professional career overseas, completed his degree in University Studies while Holyfield played last season and earned his master's degree in one year as a graduate transfer. Beard said: "I'm really proud of both of them. I was really fortunate that I got the opportunity to coach Jay Jackson and Holyfield. Earning their degrees was always something we talked about being important to them and their families. It's impressive the way both of them did it."
HOME COURT ADVANTAGE: The 2019-20 season saw the largest average attendance in program history with 14,057 fans per game. The Red Raiders sold out six home games during the season, including non-conference games against Eastern Illinois and Bethune-Cookman. The regular-season finale against Kansas was another sellout and the 32nd game in program history with 15,000-plus games at the home arena. Texas Tech is 262-93 all-time at the United Supermarkets Arena, including a 61-9 record under Beard.

2020.11.23 05:36 No-Requirement-90 Update: My little sisters husband sexual assaulted me, now she says I seduced him, that I need psych evaluation for my “mental disorder”

This is somehow harder than last weeks post. I came here for advice after a nightmare of an encounter with my little sisters husband. I honestly had no idea how to put it into words or who to tell. So I got some advice and read others stories as well. It was my first post ever on Reddit and it was so hard to make. There’s a lot of details that matter in the prior post, but in case you didn’t see it, I’ll try to keep it brief.
I packed up my whole life to move to Austin, Tx, to be with my family for the first time in my life this summer from Tennessee (I’m 29). Living near them has been amazing for myself and my daughter, and her dad. We’re incredibly tight and much more than family but friends. Then last month, we suffered the unexpected death of my oldest sister at only 35. It’s been a horrible 34 days since then. So I’ve already lost one sister, I didn’t imagine how I’d lose another.
Her husband sexually assaulted me late last Friday. Not a smack on my ass or some flirting, but real scary shit. We spoke everyday for months prior to that. My boyfriend was close with her husband. My 9 year old daughter is so close to said sister- adores her, and her two young children.
After the initial event last week my sister was in shock and so was I. I was really sad. I woke my boyfriend up as it was happening, and he was first on the scene and has known me for 15 years. He knows how broken I am about what happened. He’s been supportive and just watched me fall apart over it for the last 8 days. Helplessly watching me spiral into sadness as I kept my silence to everyone but him and my sister. (My boyfriend also gave up his life, and family to be here so I could have mine nearby. He feels incredibly betrayed by brother in law)
Then, my youngest sister confirmed my worst fears today. I told her- because I desperately need the support. She was sadly not shocked. She said he had done something similar when she was 16 years old, 3 years ago. She has kept quiet, as now I understand why so many people do. Also that there was someone else who had the same encounter and when they presented it to my sister about her husband, she cut them out of her life.
So, I asked other sister to please have her husband leave for two hours on Christmas, or come to my house, because my mom will be here, my deceased sisters 2 year old son and her survived partner, coming in from Oregon. It’s important that we’re together this year. My little girl is over the moon excited and has notebooks of plans for her first Christmas Day with her Aunts- but I can’t face him, don’t want my daughter near him, and my boyfriend refuses to be around him. Now my little(st) sister is also disturbed.
She replied “ I am not making my husband leave on Christmas.” Which made me sad.
Now the narrative has changed for the worse. From her apologizing that her husband was a creep, and suggesting that he had done this to others before- now she says I provoked it. Her therapist (Christian, old school Marriage counselor) agrees. She says I need help and have psychiatric problems.
trigger warning ahead
She said he told her “all about how I laid down in the bed with him, in my panties, and touched his dick” and that “sexual assault was not the right word”. She went into a lot more but continued to say... “ I have googled all about your mental problems (which is honestly besides the point but mind blowing since were both on the same as needed anxiety medicine and shes come to me for advice about that) and concluded “I know exactly what happened. You made this up. You have no accountability for your own part in this. You had been drinking. He only expressed interest in you because you provoked it. I know how you are, how you’ve been on tinder, how you talk to guys. You are psychologically disturbed and have distorted reality into thinking he did something to you. I think you need to make other plans for Christmas. You need a professional and to be evaluated and there’s nothing else to say, I won’t put your mental health before my husband. Now we need to put our distance between us.”
She also expressed to me that she didn’t believe that her husband “hit on me” because I’m not his type. That if it were my younger sister- she would believe it. Well, my little sister came forward and she dismissed everything she said today. Said she would talk to him about it and go “come for thanksgiving if you want or don’t, blank (me) is making this up.
So, here I am absolutely mind blown. The only reality I cannot accept is that this is why people don’t come forward. I now am a part of a club none of us ever asked to be in. The survivors club of people who are not believed. I’m thankful I do have a couple of people in my corner who know beyond any doubt that I’m telling the truth. I had nothing to gain by making this up. It was not a drunken exhasterbated thing or psychotic made up story. It’s a living nightmare. It was attempted rape, and successful assault. And not his first go at it.
I don’t know what to tell my kid. Thanksgiving is Thursday. Probably that they have coronavirus but- permanently. Like for the next 7 months. I want to move back to Tennessee so badly but don’t want to leave my youngest sister or let that fucking guy dictate my life. I cannot imagine seeing my sister at the grocery store after calling me a psychotic liar when I am and not the only victim of her husbands.
I’m being gaslit and told I just don’t know my own reality. Her trusted therapist is telling her I’m mental. She’s saying she knows I’m disturbed because she “googled” bpd, or depression, or anxiety, or something. The truth is I have been working on ptsd and anxiety since my early twenties, and have been loosely diagnosed by a therapist (and undiagnosed) as having borderline personality disorder. Then it was suggested I may have bipolar 2. Nobody had ever given me a clear answer, and I’m a high functioning human being. Consistently though, all anyone has found is I have a bad case of panic disorder, and situationally have been clinically depressed. Now that suddenly makes me a pathological liar who seduced her husband when I am a victim. Who was before her best friend, and confidant. What the fuck.
Thanks for reading if you made it this far. I don’t know what to do or what I’m asking for. Advice is nice but nothing can sum this up other than it’s fucked up and I am SO SORRY IF YOU HAVE BEEN ABUSED AND PEOPLE DON’T BELIEVE YOU OR GASLIGHT YOU.
P.s she has already started reaching out to people she’s afraid I will tell, so they get her story first. It’s like I’m dealing with a different person. I know it’s hard to digest for her, but this is not my sister. I’m not worried about what they think but most people know her husband is fucked up to her in one way or another.
I just want to heal not only from the event, but what my sister is doing even if it’s to protect her family or out of fear, it is not an excuse to be cruel and gaslight an already broken person.

BY NIGHTMAN
Current Stock Price (11/22/20 - 10:47 AM): $8.09
Sentiment: Buy
Positions: Shares
Risk: High

SUMMARY

Ayro is the maker of purpose-built EVs. Their mission is to create sustainable electric vehicles for college campuses, "last-mile" delivery solutions, "urban commuting," and "closed campus" transportation. Their offerings included a light-duty truck and a compact delivery vehicle.
AYRO has had a highly volatile share price over the past 3 months. Over the past year, AYRO's weekly volatility (20 percent) has been steady but is still above 75 percent of US stocks. They make less than USD$1M in revenue ($966K). But, revenue grew by 19.3% over the past year and they have sufficient cash for at least 1 year of operations.
They don't pay a dividend and their current market cap is $197M. However, they do not have “high-quality” earnings because they are unprofitable. They are a growth company with high upside. Aryo has had a 7-day total return of 102% compared to 16.0% of all US auto stocks. There is insufficient data to determine how AYRO performed against the US Auto Industry.
AYRO focuses mainly on the North American LSEV market. According to Wise Guy Research, the U.S. market is highly competitive and represents 28 percent of the overall LSEV market.
The company also revealed several operating highlights for the 2020 Q3 including the completed expansion of a manufacturing facility in Austin, Texas from 10,000 sq. ft. to 24,000 sq. ft. in order to increase production capacity from 200 EVs per month to 600 per month.
AYRO estimates that over 1,800 higher education campuses with over 400 on-campus vehicles are ideal targets for the AYRO 411 Fleet in the U.S. This is the basis for more than 535,000 cars that need to be converted from gas-powered to hybrid vehicles. With an estimated exchange price of $14,000, this reflects a more than $7 billion potential market. .
Increased competition might result in lower prices of vehicle units and reduced inventory, which can lead to downward market pressure. Such variables could adversely affect the company, financial position, operating performance.
AYRO's most closely-matched rival in the LSEV industry is Polaris Gem. Polaris is an LSEV company manufacturing goods designed for applications identical to AYRO's. Three passenger car models and two utility vehicle models are sold by Gem. The GEM el XD, which is identical to the AYRO 411 fleet, has a lower starting MSRP than the 411 Fleet. However, the GEM el XD will need to be highly modified to meet the standard features of the AYRO 411 Fleet and would surpass the base MSRP AYRO 411 Fleet vehicle with such a configuration.
In September of 2020, Ayro Inc. partnered with Karma Automotive LLC in the production of 20,000 electric vehicles through 2023. Manufacturing near Los Angeles, Karma will assist in the engineering and design of the electric vehicles. The contract is valued at over $300 million. Karma's manufacturing facility is about 556,000 square feet and was built to cater to highly customized premium electric vehicles.
In August of 2020, a unique collaboration with AYRO, Inc. and Club Car has been announced by Gallery. They are to launch a new line of electric cars to help consumers safely deliver food, beverage, and retail merchandise to buyers this fall. The new electric vehicles feature convenient hot and cold storage and dispensing to ensure the safe storage, transportation, and delivery of food and beverage goods.
AYRO entered into a five-year Master Procurement Agreement with Club Car in March 2019 for the purchase of four-wheeled vehicles through AYRO. The MPA grants Club Car the exclusive right to sell the AYRO 411 Fleet in North America, provided that the number of AYRO units per year is mutually agreed upon by Club Car. AYRO has also agreed to work with Club Car to develop new products similar to the AYRO 411 Fleet and to upgrade existing products.
AYRO is currently engaged in negotiations with Club Car to create additional goods to be marketed in Europe and Asia by Club Car, but there can be no guarantee that these discussions will succeed.

THE CURRENT EV INDUSTRY

Low-speed electric cars, which cannot be powered by gas or diesel fuel, are becoming more popular as eco-friendly alternatives for consumers and organizations in the electric car market. LSEVs function on electric motors driven by different batteries, such as lithium-ion, molten salt, zinc-air, and various nickel designs.
Many analysts expect the U.S. electric car industry to increase significantly over the next decade, led by factors such as the rapidly urbanized population of the country, the significant expense of owning and running diesel-powered cars, the rising global recognition of the adverse effects of pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, and increasing investment in renewable technologies.
In 2020, due to the global economic slowdown driven by COVID-19, the global low-speed electric vehicle market is expected to decline. The sector, though, will rebound in 2021, and by 2025, it is projected to hit an unprecedented $8.83 billion with a CAGR of 0 percent to 2 percent from 2020 to 2025.

EXPANDING GOVERNMENT POLICIES

In the LSEV industry, the expanding rules and regulations on vehicle emissions have contributed to growth. Specific legislation limiting automotive emissions has been enforced by the U.S., Germany, France, and China. These regulations have forced car makers to use new technology to combat high-emission standards in cars.
Many jurisdictions are gradually providing significant incentives for consumers to buy electric cars to promote clean-energy use, such as tax credits, rebates, and exemptions; reduced vehicle registration fees; reduced electricity rates; and parking incentives.
Also, local policymakers are establishing standards for infrastructure to support the growth of the electric car industry.
With Joe Biden looking to win the election, renewable energy stocks such as AYRO are shining a spotlight
Biden’s Clean Energy Plan
Biden aims to create 1 million new jobs in the American automobile industry, domestic car supply chains, and automotive facilities. From parts to components to charging stations for electric cars, Biden wants to prepare American car employees and suppliers to conquer the 21st century. To place America as the world leader in the manufacturing of electric vehicles and their raw materials and components, Biden will use all the federal government's levers, from purchasing power, R&D, trade, and procurement policies.

URBANIZATION GROWTH

In 2015, 55 percent of the world's population was metropolitan, according to the U.N., and by 2050, this figure is expected to rise to 68 percent.
However, Americans leaving towns in droves are grossly overstated due to COVID-19. 64 percent of prospective homebuyers on the web are searching at suburban locations. According to Jeff Tucker, an economist at the online real estate service Zillow, this statistic has hardly budged from previous years. Searches for land in rural and metropolitan regions represent almost the same percentage as before.
Undoubtedly, cities around the world have been affected by the COVID-19 crisis. For example, large urban centers in the United Kingdom and the USA have higher mortality rates than other settlement types. Population size has also been found to play a critical role in determining infection rates.
Professor Time Dixon, University of Reading, states that "It is the ‘urban poor’ who suffer most in the immediacy of the pandemic...We are already seeing a similar impact with COVID-19 as its effects are forecast by the World Bank to push about 49 million people into extreme poverty in 2020 (Sanchez-Paramo, 2020). City leaders and decision-makers in the global north and the south therefore face a ‘perfect storm’ of how best to deal with recovery planning and management from COVID-19 alongside the existing pressures of climate change, resource depletion and continued socioeconomic inequalities." An impending recession may put green energy initiatives on the back burner as governments attempt to dodge an economic depression.

TARGET MARKETS

LSEVs' multi-purpose applications and renewable energy usage make them popular in a wide variety of sectors and clients, including college and university campuses, resorts and hotels, corporate parks, hospitals, warehouses, individual consumers, suppliers of last-mile distribution systems, governments, and the foodservice industry.
AYRO focuses mainly on the North American LSEV market. .According to Wise Guy Research, the U.S. market is highly competitive and represents 28 percent of the overall LSEV market.
LSEVs are becoming increasingly common on university and college campuses. They better serve the flexible needs of campuses than golf carts or traditional combustion vehicles. Not only does the low-speed threshold of LSEVs promote safer driving among staff, but the cars are street legal with on-road safety features, allowing drivers to operate on roads and free up pedestrian space along sidewalks and smaller roads.
Club Car, AYRO's strategic partner, provides a grant program for colleges and universities to accelerate the drive towards a more prosperous, low-carbon future. Universities can receive a custom Club Car Carryall vehicle up to a value of $10,000 for pilot use. A supplemental fleet audit from Club Car will be offered to three additional applicants to determine their current fleet's capacity.
Campuses could significantly decrease the costs incurred on diesel, gasoline, components, and repairs by converting from internal combustion engine vehicles into LSEVs. AYRO's cars, notably the AYRO 411 Fleet, provide college and university campuses with these benefits.
AYRO estimates that over 1,800 higher education campuses with over 400 on-campus vehicles are ideal targets for the AYRO 411 Fleet in the U.S. This is the basis for more than 535,000 cars that need to be converted from gas-powered to hybrid vehicles. With an estimated exchange price of $14,000, this reflects a more than $7 billion potential market.
Customers continually embrace ease and timeliness, fostering rapid development in online shopping and distribution systems across a wide variety of sectors, including home delivery and restaurant ordering services.
According to Upserve, food distribution revenues are projected to grow over 20 percent each year, resulting in an expected $365 billion worldwide by 2030. Upserve also reports that nearly 60 percent of U.S. customers say that they order delivery or takeout at least once a week. According to Morgan Stanley, within the next decade, potentially over 40% of restaurant sales will be attributable to delivery services.
AYRO has estimated that restaurants have lowered their delivery costs by up to 50 percent using the AYRO 311 as a delivery vehicle rather than outsourcing deliveries to third party systems. Additionally, delivery services that use AYRO 311 are well-positioned to optimize customer experience and preserve customer relationships.
A 2016 Mintel survey showed that "12 percent of Americans say they have used third-party delivery service in the past three months. Among non-users, 30 percent say they would rather order delivery directly from the restaurant itself."
Third-party online ordering platforms charge commissions on each order, ranging between 15% to 40%.How do they get away with charging such exorbitant fees? It’s only a matter of time before restaurants catch on and these platforms start to lose market share.
Due to the boom in shopping online, retail's focus on last-mile distribution - the transfer of goods from a logistics hub to the final delivery destination - has increased exponentially over the past few years. Last-mile delivery gives consumers more convenient and faster delivery solutions that the other three shipping systems in the U.S. do not provide. Also, retailers may need to continue deploying eco-friendly cars due to the growing establishment of low-emission zones in urban centers.
The Zero Emissions Roadmap 2.0
Due to their zero gas emissions and lower cost than rival electric cars, retailers are expected to increase the usage of LSEV fleets to render delivery in low emission zones. AYRO expects the 411 Fleet will stand out from the opposition with its range of cargo bed options and its lower price point. Also, for smaller packages and urgent courier-style deliveries, the 311 car cycle is suitable for quick point-destination deliveries.
Cities are progressively looking to replace their public buses with zero-emission fleets as more local councils introduce regulations to minimize emissions from cars. However, such fleet overhauls can be costly. For cities daunted by standard electric vehicles' cost, LSEVs are a cheaper and an even more realistic alternative. The LSEVs of AYRO have capacities both on and off-road, making them remarkably flexible for municipalities.

COMPETITORS

The worldwide automotive market is highly competitive, especially for inexpensive and alternative fuel vehicles, and AYRO expects it to become even more competitive in the future. Other suppliers have joined the market for three-wheeled cars, and AYRO expects more rivals to enter the market within the next few years.
In the global LSEV industry, the most competitive firms include HDK Electric Vehicles, Bradshaw Electric Vehicles, Textron Inc., Polaris Industries, Yamaha Motors Co. Ltd., Speedway Electric, Ingersoll Rand, Inc., AGT Electric Automobiles, Bintelli Electric Vehicles, and Ligier Group. The partnership between AYRO and Club Car, an Ingersoll Rand, Inc. division, gives AYRO a decisive strategic advantage.
Despite this fact, many of the other competitors identified above have substantially greater financial, technological, production, marketing, and other resources than AYRO and will devote more resources to designing, creating, processing, shipping, promoting, selling, and supporting their goods.
Unlike the AYRO 411 Fleet, which was engineered, designed, and manufactured as a portfolio of hybrid, medium-duty trucks and vans, all of these rivals adapt an existing fossil-fuel driven golf cart to fulfill utility and industrial requirements for an all-electric commercial utility vehicle.
AYRO's cars are slightly more competitive than internal combustion engine vehicles, based on tax, title and license fees, and CO2 emissions. If renewed electricity is used to charge the AYRO vehicles, an increasing practice for most higher education campuses and government facilities, the AYRO 411 Fleet has an estimated 49 percent reduction in operating costs and an approximate 100 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to a typical Ford F150 (gasoline) pickup truck.
The AYRO 311 offers a drastic reduction in running costs and CO2 emissions relative to the Nissan Versa (gasoline) four-cylinder (1.6 liters) sub-compact vehicle. Additionally, the suggested retail price of the AYRO 311's is $9,999 MSRP. Respectively, Arcimoto and SOLO sector three-wheeled electric cars have starting MSRPs of $19,900 and $15,888.
AYRO's most closely-matched rival in the LSEV industry is Polaris Gem. Polaris is an LSEV company manufacturing goods designed for applications identical to AYRO's. Three passenger car models and two utility vehicle models are sold by Gem. The GEM el XD, which is identical to the AYRO 411 fleet, has a lower starting MSRP than the 411 Fleet. However, the GEM el XD will need to be highly modified to meet the standard features of the AYRO 411 Fleet and would surpass the base MSRP of each AYRO 411 Fleet vehicle with such a configuration.
In addition to 13 percent more horsepower and a 48 percent improved turning radius, the AYRO 411 fleet has a more significant pickup bed and box room than the GEM el XD. Such features help drivers of the AYRO 411 Fleet to perform maneuvers in smaller spaces than they can use with the GEM el XD.
In view of the increased demand for alternative fuel vehicles, ongoing globalization, and restructuring in the worldwide automotive sector, AYRO expects competition in its industry to intensify in the future. Product quality and features, time for innovation and growth, cost, durability, protection, customer care, and financing terms are factors impacting competitiveness. Increased competition might result in lower prices of vehicle units and reduced inventory, which can lead to downward market pressure. Such variables could adversely affect the company, financial position, operating performance, and prospects of AYRO.

RECENT PARTNERSHIPS AND NOTABLE NEWS

September 29, 2020

Using AYRO's Lithium-Powered Vendor Box on the Club Car 411 Vehicle, the specially made EVs are designed and built by Gallery to support mobile power for a variety of on-board food services.
The new electric vehicles feature convenient hot and cold storage and dispensing to ensure the safe storage, transportation, and delivery of food and beverage goods.
With at least 50 percent of the cost of fuel, zero-emission vehicles require far less energy than full-size, gas-powered food trucks and do not require any special charging infrastructure.
August 21, 2020
“AYRO Inc. announces an initial order from Club Car for nine Club Car 411 electric vehicles to serve a military medical campus in the Northeast United States. This is the first Club Car 411 deployment that will serve a major medical center. The initial order has already been deployed and includes an opportunity for additional follow-on orders.”
July 21, 2020
AYRO Inc. announces it has received $584,000 in orders for its inaugural purpose-built EV hospitality truck solution. The milestone follows the recent partnership announcement with Gallery Carts (Gallery), a leading provider of food, beverage and retail carts, kiosks and portables.
March 31, 2020
AYRO Inc. announces the company’s deployment of vehicles at Princeton University and Penn State University through its strategic partnership with Club Car, Inc. Both Higher-Ed campuses have taken ownership of all-electric Club Car 411 utility trucks built by AYRO, Inc. at its Texas factory.”
March 2019
AYRO entered into a five-year Master Procurement Agreement with Club Car in March 2019 for the purchase of four-wheeled vehicles through AYRO. The MPA grants Club Car the exclusive right to sell the AYRO 411 Fleet in North America, provided that the number of AYRO units per year is mutually agreed upon by Club Car.
Under the provisions of the MPA, AYRO accepts orders for vehicles of unique models from Club Car suppliers, and AYRO invoices Club Car after the vehicle has been delivered. The MPA has an initial term of five years beginning on 1 January 2019 and may be renewed by Club Car on 60 days of prior written notice for successive one-year periods.
AYRO has also agreed to work with Club Car to develop new products similar to the AYRO 411 Fleet and to upgrade existing products. AYRO has given Club Car the right to initially decline to buy similar commercial utility vehicles produced by AYRO during the MPA era.
AYRO is currently engaged in negotiations with Club Car to create additional goods to be marketed in Europe and Asia by Club Car, but there can be no guarantee that these discussions will succeed. According to the MPA, in the event that AYRO decides to sell 51% or more of its assets or equity interests, AYRO has also given Club Car the right of first refusal, which is exercisable for a period of 45 days following the issuance of the acquisition notice to Club Car by AYRO.
August 2019
AYRO is creating a technology framework that can be deployed as additional value-add subscriptions directly offered to the end-user on every car.
AYRO has collaborated with Autonomic, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ford Smart Mobility LLC, in its transportation mobility cloud to gather vehicle health, utilization, and location information (telematics) and deliver purpose-built data back to AYRO, clients, and fleet operators, generating an additional revenue stream.
The companies plan to create a range of services to enable AYRO's line of vehicles to be mobile application friendly.
2017
In a supply chain partnership to provide sub-assembly manufacturing facilities, AYRO partnered with Cenntro Automotive Group, Ltd., which operates a large electric vehicle plant in the automotive district of Hangzhou, China.
Cenntro received nineteen percent (19 percent) of AYRO's common stock through the alliance.
As of December 31, 2019, Cenntro beneficially owned approximately 13.7 percent.
The production of the AYRO 411 Fleet vehicles is owned by Cenntro and AYRO has been
given an exclusive license to import the AYRO 411 Fleet vehicles for sale in North America.
Cenntro is also used for the production of sub-assemblies of AYRO 311. For both the 411 and 311 models, AYRO imports semi-knocked-down vehicle kits from Cenntro.
AYRO's manufacturing plant in Round Rock, Texas, collects the vehicle kits by shipping containers. With minimal customization requirements per order, the vehicles are then assembled.
As such the collaboration with Cenntro enables AYRO to ramp up production activities without substantial capital spending commitments, thus rapidly selling goods.
A knock-down kit is a series of parts needed to assemble a package (also a knock-down kit, knocked-down kit, or simply knockdown or KD). In one country or region, the pieces are usually assembled, and shipped for final assembly to another country or region.
In the automobile, taxi, heavy truck and rail vehicle sectors, as well as electronics, furniture and other items, CKD is a prevalent activity.
Businesses offer knocked-down packages to their overseas counterparts or licensees for a number of purposes, including avoiding import duties, obtaining tax preferences for local manufacturing jobs, or simply being accepted as a bidder by other corporations.

2020.11.21 02:55 atxthrowaway010101 30 M4W looking for a kick ass nerdy woman

I have been doing lots of social distancing, and spending more time doing video calls with my friends. it just feel so good to have banter and makes me realize how much the pandemic has effect things.. The few friends I meet up, we all en up talking for 3-6 hours at a coffee shop. This time last year I would be out doing partner activities, dance hall dancing, laughing with my friends. But needless to say it's been a while for those fun nights. If anything Covid has shown me how important those key friends are; the ones that you can really talk to all night about nerdy stuff, new topics, or whatever.
Which had me thinking. I honestly think at some point I gave up on meeting a woman who was into all that nerdy stuff that I love. Gaming, D&D, reading, scifi, comic conventions, zombie movies, anime. Which is stupid, as I know Austin of all places has a lot of nerdy women.
I am always doing something new. I always have a new project and idea. I am described by my friends as really kind. I do really well at work as a Sr software engineer, and I might get promoted if I decide I want it. I don't game or watch anime as much as I did when I was younger, but there has been a lot of startrek in my life the last 6 months. Not to mention books. So many books. I'm probably on my 20th book, IDK hard to keep track. Over 350 in my collection. Some Brandon Sanderson.

2020.11.20 22:10 mdthrowaway2021 I am 34 years old make $92,000, live in Austin TX and work in an operations role in tech

Section One: Assets and Debt
Retirement Balance
Mine: $82,910 -- I probably should have more in here. My employer doesn’t offer matching so I contribute 8% into two different 401k accounts, a “Before tax” account and a Roth 401(k) account. I truly feel over my head when it comes to retirement.
My husband has a retirement account but because his job is in public education, it’s totally different and I don’t know how it works.
Equity if you're a homeowner
Our home is worth about $440k. We bought it 3 years ago for $375. We put down only 6% which I saved up mostly because my grandpa gave me $10k a few years prior which helped me get out of credit card debit and allowed me to save. Without that, I don’t know if we ever could have bought a house. We had PMI but recently refinanced and they bought it out. I’m going to estimate we have about $87,000 in equity between the down payment and the increase in value.
Savings account balance: We have $49k in a savings account. $15k of that is specifically marked as an emergency fund and the rest is just money we’ve been saving for nothing in particular. Some of this is also from an estate I received a few years back after my grandpa’s death. I need to move it to a HYS.
Investments: We have $1850 in a Robinhood account and another $3,305 in an eTrade account from an old job = $5,155
Checking account balance: About $6,000
Credit card debt (and how you accumulated it): I have no cc debt (anymore) but my husband has some from grad school. He holds back a portion of his paycheck from our joint checking account each month to pay it and his student loan debt off.
Student loan debt (for what degree): I have no student loan debt from my BA. My parents paid for my schooling outright which I am very very grateful for. My husband has significant student loan debt from his MA and PHD.
Section Two: Income
Main Job Monthly Take Home:
- My take home pay is $4,746.50 a month after deductions.
I pay 1500 in taxes, $200 in benefits, and $1230 in retirement
- My husband’s take home pay is $4,514 and he holds back $1200 to pay off his credit cards each month, so we end up with about $8,060 in our joint account each month
We have no side gigs or other monthly income
Section Three: Expenses
Rent / Mortgage / HOA fees (please specify how you split it if living with a partner): $2,446.83
Renters / home insurance: Included in our Mortgage payment, as well as our property taxes
Savings contribution: We deposit $1,100 each month into savings and often will deposit whatever we have left at the end of the month into savings as well
Investment contribution: We aren’t currently doing an regular investments
Debt payments: My husband pays $1200-$1300 a month in CC payments (mentioned above in the Income section). He is paying the minimum on one card (with lower APR) while paying extra on the other. Once that one is paid off, he’ll start paying the full amount on the 2nd card. We think we will be out of CC debt by the end of next year.
We also pay the minimum currently on his student loans: $315
Donations: We donate one-offs fairly regularly to causes that are important to us. At the beginning of the year I did a lot of small donations to Bernie and then later in the year I did a lot of BLM donations. All together this year we’ve donated $1100 which feels not significant enough now that I look at it. I need to get this higher next year.
Electric: $250-300 a month. This includes electric, water, and trash utilities
Wifi/Cable/Landline: $85 a month for just high speed wifi (it was just raised, which I mention in my diary)
Cellphone: $127 for two older model iPhones that are paid off, but this includes our Netflix subscription!
Subscriptions:
I share all our streaming accounts with my parents and sister.
- Hulu with HD and multiple screens: $13 /mo
- Amazon Prime - $112 /year
- Peloton - $14 /mo
- Spotify - $11 /mo
- CauseBox - $215 /year
Gym membership: We use a Peloton subscription and bike at home
Pet expenses: Varies each month. We don't pay for pet insurance. With two pets (a cat and a dog), vet appointments, in the last year we’ve spent about $240 /mo on them. Jeez, good thing they’re cute. (That does include an $700 emergency vet trip my cat had to make a few months ago so hopefully next year it won’t be so high)
Car payment / insurance: We bought my car in cash. Sooner after, my husbands car (which was also paid off) had some major problems so we had to replace it. We pay $98 a month and owe $5500 still. We pay $530 in car insurance every 6 months. Car insurance in Austin is pretty expensive.
Regular therapy: None
Paid hobbies: I pay for a Nintendo Switch Online account which is $20 a year.
Any other expense that's relevant to you
We pay a pool company to maintain our pool. This varies in cost from $215-$275 a month usually
Day 1: Friday
7:30 - My alarm goes off and I get right up, which is an abnormality but I have an 8AM meeting in which I’m presenting. I brush my teeth, put some makeup on to look okay for my presentation, and brush my hair. My husband starts the coffee. Our dog looks at us longingly but her walk will need to wait until a little later.
8:00 - Nervous in my meeting, there are over 50 people dialed in. I’m the third presenter so I sip on my coffee and wait.
9:00 - Presentation went well! My boss messages me congrats. I feel relieved that’s over but no time to really think about it - I have another meeting to join.
10:15 - My 9AM meeting went a little long but it’s done. My husband and I take a break to walk the dog around the block and chat about how our day is starting off. Then we both go back to work.
12:00 - We break for lunch. I ordered off the Chipotle app - a burrito for hb and a bowl for me. I have a coupon for a free bowl because they messed up my last one. $10.81
1:00 - Back at home and in another meeting.
2:00 - I drive to my office to pick up an extra monitor. The office is spooky and empty. I want to take some extra batteries home for my keyboard and mouse, but the battery area has been looted by employees and there are none left.
3:00 - I get home and work on rearranging my desk. It takes a while to get it to look how. I placed an alcohol delivery for the weekend. The liquor store nearest us doesn’t have the beer we wanted so I picked out two different six packs rather than order from the one a few miles away. I like to try to support very localized businesses when possible, since I wouldn’t want the liquor store near us to go out of business. I also ordered a bottle of red wine for a ragu we’re going to make tomorrow. There’s a delivery fee and I tip. $44.97
5:00 - I finally stop working for the day. I usually would stop earlier on a Friday but things kept popping up. The alcohol is delivered and I take a beer and my phone out to the porch.
6:30 - We realize we should really order some food. I try to eat healthy, but on Fridays we often eat out. We decide on delivery pizza and I order a large supreme with a 50% off coupon. Our cart doesn’t meet the minimum so I add a side of cinnamon sticks. Diet be damned. Tipped $4.50 and total still only came to $21
8:00 - Pizza still isn’t here and I haven’t eaten nearly enough. As a result, I’m fairly drunk on beer. The pizza finally comes and we eat it while watching old episodes of King of the Hill. I learn that Washington is putting travel restrictions in place. This stresses me out because my sister (who lives in WA) wanted to come for Thanksgiving, something I was already unsure of.
11:00 - Husband has a bad stomach ache (probably from the super healthy combo of Chipotle, pizza, and beer) so he goes to bed early. I mostly look at the internet until I go to bed around midnight.
Day total: $76.78
Day 2: Saturday
8:00 - I wake up and lay around in bed, scrolling on my phone. My husband is still sleeping and I’m feeling a little hungover from drinking and staying up too late the night before.
9:30 - We both finally get up. I take a shower while he starts coffee. I eat a piece of cold pizza along with my coffee. We take the dog for a walk.
10:30 - I make our grocery list for this week. This week I plan a bunch of easy meals that use our air fryer because I’m a little obsessed with it. It’s not the healthiest week ever and I think that’s because we’re going into the holidays and I’m probably subconsciously letting that become an excuse.
11:00 - We go grocery shopping and pick up all the ingredients for this week of food, a bunch of smoothie supplies for lunches, and some household stuff we needed. I also buy some toiletries for a neighbor in need (about $20 of the bill). $150.73
12:00 - I eat grocery store sushi for lunch while playing Animal Crossing. We talk about what else we need to do today. My husband practices guitar and we end up wasting a couple hours.
2:00 - We drop off a bag of toiletries at our neighbors house and go to the pet store -- we need more freeze-dried chicken to try to trick our dog into eating her food. I want to let her pick something out to chew on but she picks out a bone practically as big as her so I get her a bully stick instead. $23.79
3:00 - I take the dog around the block and try to call my sister. She’s not able to talk so I call my mom instead and we chat for about 20 minutes.
3:30 - When I get home, my husband and I start working on the ragu. It takes about 3 or 4 hours to let the short ribs get super tender so we probably should have started this a little earlier. Oh well. It’s one of my favorite meals, even though it’s not too healthy. I put on Holidate on Netflix to watch while we cook.
5:30 - I relax on the couch with a glass of wine. I mostly look at my phone and watch Netflix
7:30 - Dinner is ready and it’s amazing. We spend the rest of the evening watching Netflix.
10:00 - I take a shower and get into bed.
Day total: $174.52
Day 3: Sunday
8:30 - We wake up and have some coffee before taking the dog around the block. We discuss what we should do today. It’s kind of cold and windy and I’m feeling lazy and tired.
10:30 - We’ve decided to do yard work. I blow leaves into the driveway where my husband sweeps them into piles and vacuums them up.
12:00 - We’re done with the yard work. It feels like I pulled a muscle in my arm and it hurts really badly. We decide on some Trader Joe’s Chicken Chile Verde Burritos for lunch. We waste some time flipping through TV channels on the antenna (just crap, crap, and crap for old people) and trying to decide if there’s anything else we want to do today. I always feel super guilty for not being productive on the weekends but between my anxiety about Thanksgiving and my arm, I’m not in the mood to do anything.
1:30 - We take the dog for a walk again. She seems to have unlimited energy so we mix up which routes we take to try to keep it more engaging for her. When we get home, we put some chicken in a marinade of buttermilk and pickle juice for dinner later -- tastes like Chic Fil A chicken this way (I never eat there because of their politics but I love the flavor).
2:30 - I sit on our porch with a book. I usually have a goal to read 40 books a year but I’m far behind this year. I haven’t been able to concentrate on reading since March. I end up getting into my book though I get distracted and look at my phone occasionally (ok more than occasionally)
5:00 - My husband says he’s getting hungry so we move inside to start dinner soon. He gets distracted playing the guitar so I keep reading on the couch. I’m actually doing a better job at paying attention now.
6:00 - My husband does most of the work of getting dinner ready. I get up near the end to help him out. He makes panko covered chicken strips in the airfryer and mashed potatoes and I make a fruit salad. The dinner is really good. Hb turns on King of the Hill, I look at my phone for awhile before going back to reading.
7:30 - I try calling my sister, no answer.
8:00 - I take a shower and put a face mask on after that makes my husband compare me to Jim Carrey in The Mask. I lay in bed in my robe and keep reading -- I’m proud of myself for reading all day! -- before going to bed around 11.
Day total: $0
Day 4: Monday
7:30 - My alarm goes off. I hit snooze. It feels cold in the house and I don’t want to get out of bed.
8:00 - I get up and get dressed. I wear leggings every single day now. We take the dog around the block and then have some coffee before going into our home offices.
9:00 - I check my email and buy two toys for the office Toys for Tots drive. They make it really easy this year with an online portal to buy toys through. $19.98
9:30 - My To Do list reminds me my boss’s birthday is coming up so I buy an online group greeting card and send it out to a bunch of people who work with her. $4.99
10:00 - I attend a training I put together but luckily don’t have to lead. It goes well. The rest of the morning is spent on checking emails and working through my to do list.
11:30 - We break for lunch and take the dog around the block while discussing what to eat. I decide to be responsible and have a smoothie for lunch. I make enough for both of us -- our grocery store (Woo HEB!) sells these frozen smoothie packs I like to buy. I go with the Powerhouse this time (Bananas, Grapes, Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, and Kale) and I add some orange juice, greek yogurt, some fresh raspberries from the fridge that I don’t want to waste, frozen spinach, frozen cauliflower, and a banana. It turns out huge and delicious. I make a note that I’m out of Chia Seeds and add them to the shopping list.
12:00 - I drink my smoothie in front of my computer. I don’t really have much on my to do list today so I put on some music and waste two hours looking at Money Diaries on Reddit to figure out how to write this one. I think I’m being too wordy.
12:30 - I call my sister to talk about Thanksgiving. I’ve decided it’s not safe for her to come but she’s really disappointed/upset and ends the call quickly. I feel terrible about it -- I miss her and want to see her but I also want to be safe and ensure we’re doing our part. I cry a bit because that’s who I am as a person. Fuck 2020.
3:00 - My dog has a vet appointment. They suggest expensive ass prescription wet food for her, which I accept because I always feel guilty and weird in these situations and I obviously love my dog. I pay for the visit, a test, and the food. I drive home thinking about the extra money I’m now going to have to spend each month on her food and wondering if this was all necessary. $176.04
4:00 - I get home from the vet to a bouquet of roses from my husband :) He knew I was stressed after the whole Thanksgiving thing. I answer a couple of Slack messages but mostly wrap up for the day.
6:00 - We make dinner together. Another easy meal: homemade taquitos in the air fryer with a side of shishito peppers and corn. I have a low calorie IPA that is actually pretty decent and finish my book. I text my sister but she doesn’t respond.
11:00 - Time to shower and go to bed.
Day total: $201.01
Day 5: Tuesday
7:00 - I wake up before my alarm and look at Reddit for 45 minutes. It’s really cold in the house again so I turn the heater on even though this is Texas and it’s going to be in the 70s today.
8:30 - My husband takes the dog around the block because he’s an angel. I’m feeling overwhelmed by my calendar and to-do list. I get some coffee and get to work. I listen to the latest This American Life episode and cry listening to an elderly man talk about voting straight Democrat for the first time in his life.
9:30 - I have a 1:1 with my direct report (I only have one currently) so beforehand I try to shake off my bad mood. I open the blinds to let light in, light two candles (I keep seeing people here saying that they light candles during work, so I’m going to try), and put on some make up.
10:30 - My attempts to get out of a bad mood worked and I’m feeling better. I also have gotten through much of my to-do list already this morning and am feeling less stressed. This is a common problem I have where in the morning I feel overwhelmed and like I don’t have any time to do anything, but after I sit down and get some things done, I realize I had far less than I thought. I spend some free time working on recording things to my budget. I use a Google Sheet I created for that purpose and it works well for me. I notice our Spectrum bill has gone up by $15 so I call them and learn there’s nothing they can do -- our promotional credit period ended.
11:30 - Lunch break. We take the dog on a walk and I complain about the Spectrum bill. Then I make us both a smoothie and we chat a little bit before going back to work.
2:00 - I have a good conversation with my manager in our 1x1 about what direction I should take my career in. My last manager was a VP and was sometimes hard to work with -- I felt thrown in the deep end and not supported. He had told me he didn’t think I had a lot of potential which I think impacted how I felt about myself for awhile. I’ve been working with my current manager for about a year now and confided this to her which she couldn’t have disagreed with more. We talked about working with difficult people, especially difficult men, and decided on some ways for me to be more confident in those situations.
4:00 - My brain is starting to feel tired and I decide to sign off for the day. My husband goes for a run so I walk the dog and call my mom.
5:30 - I have another one of my low calorie IPAs while making and eating nachos for dinner, using tortillas we turn into chips with the air fryer. The tomato I bought for the week has gone bad already (ugh!) so I use salsa instead. Not my healthiest dinner but still delicious. We watch Schitt’s Creek while eating and continue after.
8:30 - I take a shower and get into bed with a new book, which I don’t end up reading. Instead I play Animal Crossing until about 11 when I go to sleep.
Day total: $0
Day 6: Wednesday
6:00 - I wake up after a weird dream and have a hard time going back to sleep but eventually do. When my alarm goes off at 7:30 I turn it off.
8:30 - I wake up again and realize I slept in pretty late. I get up, put on a pair of leggings and a t-shirt, and put some makeup on before taking the dog around the block.
9:30 - I start work and am immediately frustrated with a problem that could have been avoided if someone had just brought it to my attention so we could have planned for it. My direct report and I complain about it on Slack. This week has been busier than I expected and I’m in back to back meetings until noon.
12:20 - I break for lunch. My husband heats up some leftover stew we had in the freezer from a couple weeks ago. It’s delicious and a nice change from smoothies. Then we take the dog on a walk around the block.
1:00 - Back to work. I begin planning for a project that will complete in mid-December, realizing suddenly that next week is so short because of Thanksgiving (we close at noon on Wednesday) and I’m actually a little behind.
4:00 - I haven’t had much time to breathe all day. I put some potatoes in the oven for dinner and try to sign off for the day, but things keep coming up and I get sucked back into work.
5:30 - Done with work and we take the dog around the block. When we get home, I start prepping dinner and my husband starts messing around with his guitar, which causes an argument. I often feel like he lets me take on a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to dinner and it becomes a sticking point that we argue over. We end up eating dinner while both just looking at our phones
6:30 - We make up, and watch some Gilmore Girls until it’s time to go take a shower and go to bed around 11.
Day total: $0
Day 7: Thursday
7:30 - I wake up with my alarm and get dressed, put some makeup on, and have some coffee on the couch while playing Animal Crossing until we take the dog for a walk.
9:00 - I start work a little before 9. I have meetings for most of the morning and am still dealing with the project I realized I was behind on yesterday. I move another meeting out to after Thanksgiving so I have time to focus on what is most important right now. I reschedule meetings all the time and I think sometimes I annoy people because of it.
11:15 - I have a meeting at noon so I take a break now for lunch. We take the dog around the block and make another smoothie for lunch.
12:00 - I’m back to work until about 3
3:00 - I take the dog on a long walk because the other two today have been very quick since I was so busy. I chat with my mom on the phone for an hour during and after the walk.
4:00 - My husband quits working for the day but the pool guy is here, so we don’t sit out back. We plan our Thanksgiving meal, which will now just be us, but we still decide on doing a turkey breast and the normal sides. I’m so excited, I love Thanksgiving food. Talking about all the food makes us hungry.
5:30 - We make dinner, just pasta with Italian sausage I cook up over the stove and add the pasta sauce too. I thought I had some vegetables to serve along it but realize I don’t so oh well. I’m definitely already in the holidays, eat whatever I want, mindset. After dinner we watch more Gilmore Girls and then I watch TikTok videos until it’s time for bed.
Day total: $0

Reflection
This week made me realize how boring I am in the COVID world. I used to at least go out for dinner every once and awhile with people, but my husband and I take it all really seriously and want to be responsible. I feel kind of embarrassed sharing it with everyone since all I don’t do much of anything.
Spending wise, this week is fairly normal. I didn’t do any home or beauty shopping this week, usually at least one week a month I would have more expenses in that category. I didn’t even order anything from Amazon this week! There just isn’t much I need right now and I probably was also holding back a little knowing I was writing this. I’d like to work on donating more next year and maybe volunteering somewhere so I could get out of the house without spending money and give back to my community, which is really important to me.

2020.11.20 12:36 Agalopez Which WWE game?

Hi there! Not sure if im in the right place, but I'm getting the itch to play a WWE game. Its been years since i last played a game(SvR ft. ECW 2008) or watched WWE(nexus era). Incase i ever bite the bullet and buy a game, i have a few questions if yall would be kind enough to answer.
SvR08 was the only game i ever played, and for all i know its the worst in the series. I only played the.... Career mode(?) with a created superstar. You'd work your way up, gaining a partner for tagteams and a... Girlfriend? You could chat with people behind the scenes i think like a friend or rival. I assume nostalgia is blinding me and it was simple/boring, but i found it fun. Also things mustve improved and gotten more intricate since. Although the roster has changed to people i dont know.
So i guess the question is, which game would be the best for me to get for creating a superstar and going into career mode?
I believe i already own a WWE game xbox gave away at some point, it had stone cold steve austin on the cover(2k16?). Is that good enough for my needs?
Should i just buy the newest game or sacrifice what it has to offer(like graphics, online services, modes?), and get an older one to have a roster i recognize more. Honestly, im okay with using the current roster since im in it more for the career mode but im curious if you'd recommend an older game.
Lastly why is there only 3 wwe games on the store? And why are the older games still full price? Sheesh. Im assuming they dropped online support for the previous games?
Tldr: 1. Best game to create a character and career mode?
  1. 2k16 good enough?
  2. Buy newest game, or get older to have a roster i recognize but potentially lose on graphics, game modes, online support, etc?
  3. Why is there only 3 games on store, and why are they still full price.

2020.11.20 07:49 TVaultMedia The Stranger Part 1

My name is Joseph Hawkins, and until May 7th, 2018, life was normal. I am, or was, a respected Homicide Detective with the Houston Police Department. Yes, I am from Texas. I was once a respected detective, having solved many cases and putting many scum bags away. However, one mistake landed me in the Missing Persons Department.
On April 3rd, 2018 I was working with my partner Cary Griffin on the Martinez Murders case. Jesus Martinez was a prominent Latin King in the Houston Area, known for pushing coke and meth, small league bullshit. However, in March he jumped his game up and took out a rival sect of the Tango Blast gang. Fucker set a bomb off in an abandoned building on Capitol St. Took out 6 members of the rival gang. Most of us agreed, it was likely a drug trade gone bad. Here in Houston it's common for the street trash to mingle and make profit, especially if you are the same race. Sad, but true. Rumor had it that he had been held up for weeks after the blast and strung out on his own drugs.
Cary pulled up outside the department in our company issued undercover unit. Lord, that car looked like hell, paint missing, it had certainly seen better days. I hopped into the passenger seat and we took off following leads regarding the case. Cary was a fat depressive man. Very unwanted by members of HPD and for very good reason. See, Cary was a racist, a bad one too, you could even peg him as a Neo-Nazi sympathizer. Mien Comf sits in the top drawer of his desk, and he wears an undercover Nazi coin crafted into a ring on his ring finger. He had faced several complaints from other members of the department I filed 3 myself though he never knew. The "Top Brass" however; didn't feel it necessary to suspend or remove him from the Force, and working with him was a nightmare.
I was reflecting on aspects of the case when Cary hit me in shoulder.
"Hey Joe, isn't that Mario over there on the corner?" He asked.
"Yeah let's grab the peace of shit and take him in for questioning, he may have the dirt on Martinez." I huffed.
Mario Rodriguez was a pusher and ran drugs on the South Side, but definitely knew players in the Latin Kings and Tango Blast. This gave him no real importance, but put in him a position to know certain people on both sides, and was a good lead on Martinez or one of his affiliates.
As soon as we pulled off to the side of the street, Mario spotted us and bolted. He ran like a bat out of hell.
"TAKE ST. JOSEPH AND HEAD WEST WE WILL CUT HIM OFF ON AUSTIN!" I shouted, as I chased Mario on foot.
Cary Griffin radioed the call in as he took off in the car. An old woman happened to be leaving one of the stores when Mario shoved her to the pavement.
"OUT OF THE WAY YOU OLD BITCH!" He shouted.
I continued the chase until we reached the corner of Austin St. and St. Joseph, where Cary hobbled out of the cruiser to confront Mario.
"Listen here you piece of shit, one move and I drop you." Cary stated, pistol pointing at Mario.
Mario was visibly shaking, as he spoke he stuttered. " Listen vatos, I ain't going in, I'm scared of HIM more than the law, and I'm not taking chances." He said this while slowly pulling a knife from his pocket.
"PUT IT DOWN NOW!" I commanded.
Local beat cops had already sectioned off the road and he was surrounded, with no way out. With a sudden shake, Mario was on the floor, one of the beat cops had positioned himself close enough to hit Mario with his taser. Within a few minutes we gave him his Rights and had placed him in the rear of cruiser, I had Cary handle this, and he was going to do the report too. This is the least that that he could do.
While returning to lock up I tuned Cary out. A gift I had learned from years as his partner. Often when picking up a suspect like Mario, he would ramble his racist garbage, and I tune him out.
Suddenly, I felt an iron grip on my left hand, I looked over to see blood dribbling down Griffin's neck.
Mario was screaming at Cary, " Die you racist fuck, you aren't taking me in, I'm not going back."
I grabbed Mario's hand and tried to hold on. His hands were so slick with blood that I kept losing my grip and the ice pick being used was going further into Cary's throat. While struggling with Mario I hadn't noticed the car was out of control. There was a slam that knocked Mario to the passenger side of the unit, and I looked forward to see we were heading toward construction zone where a cement truck was just backing into the road. I reached for the wheel but it was too late, as I screamed at Cary to stay with me we struck the front of the truck and flipped.
When I came too I pulled my pistol and looked in the rear of the vehicle to see that a back window had been damaged and Mario was nowhere to be seen, I checked Cary's pulse and knew that he was gone. Blood was everywhere, the ice pick had likely sliced the artery.
There were day's of questioning by Internal Affairs. Every cop's worst nightmare, they live and eat the ruination of any cop. We were found at fault for failing to search the suspect and find the ice pick and this of course, resulting in Cary Griffin's death. Adding insult to injury, Mario Rodriguez had evaded capture for days, he had shot another cop while being apprehended for Cary's murder. This also, was attributed to my failure. I.A.D knew that Cary was the officer conducting the apprehension and the search, but as I was living and Cary was not, it was on me. I was suspended pending the investigation and then assigned a new position with the Missing Persons Division on May 7th, 2018. That was the morning the city turned to shit.
I woke up to a 2am call from Captain Trinh, " Sir, what's going on?" I asked, barley awake.
"You are needed now Lt. Hawkins, come to HQ and report immediately to Missing Persons." He said with a tone that just oozed that you don't have any choice in the matter.
"Sir, with all due respect, I'm still under review and I am suspended." I stated, now becoming focused on my surroundings.
I began to slowly notice the lights were off across my apartment, and noises could be heard outside my window. People running and screaming, and I had barely registered his final statement before the phone call was ended.
"GET HERE NOW, THAT'S AN ORDER FROM CHIEF. CHILDREN ARE MISSING ACROSS THE CITY."
I quickly got dressed and headed toward HQ, flipping on the radio to soak up the chaos unfolding before me.
"This is KTRH 740 bringing you an emergency update to the power outages that occurred this morning. The outages occurred from 12am to approximately 2am this morning. Local power companies currently have no explanation for the outages, but are investigating reports that a power surge occurred just prior to the blackout. The blackout reached most of the metroplex and surrounding counties, and we have reports that 10 families across the city are reporting that one or all of their children went missing during the blackout. Chief Acevedo has not given a press statement regarding this situation yet, but one is expected this morning."
I turned off the radio and mumbled to myself, "What the fuck is happening."
As I pulled up to HQ the local news stations were already setting up outside. I pushed through the growing mob of media and concerned families. Many were beginning to scream at the officers standing watch outside, begging for answers that no one could give them.
As I entered the Bull Pen, there was an observable disdain and quiet in the room. Though many of us, I could see one or two detectives were missing. Captain Trinh summoned me into his office and slammed the door so hard the windows rattled.
"YOU ARE BEING PLACED INTO MISSING PERSONS EFFECTIVE AS OF RIGHT NOW, AND I WANT YOU ON YOUR BEST FUCKING BEHAVIOR. NO FUCKING SCREW UPS, NO BULLSHIT, NOT WITH THIS. DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME HAWKINS?" He shouted, it seemed more for show, but his face was turning a dark shade of red.
"Yes sir." I stated.
He began to speak while sliding my gun and badge across to me.
"You will help lead this investigation as the Lt. in charge of Missing Persons investigations is currently with his family, His daughter Stacy is missing. You are to report directly to me on ALL aspects of your investigation. Understood?"
"Yes sir, I do understand and you will be updated regarding this investigation. Do we have any leads?"
My eyes washed over him, and I could see that he was just as lost as the rest of us.
"We have one. The second call that came in was regarding a family living in the Heights. They are home and waiting on a Detective. Their daughter Janice was taken, but their son Zach was not. They stayed in the same room, he hasn't been questioned yet, as the family is obviously distraught and unnerved. It's the Perkins family. Joseph be courteous." He stated, obviously saddened by the need to question a young boy.
As I turned to walk away, he called out to me. "You will have a partner on this and I know you don't want one, but this isn't an option."
I walked from Trinh's office with anger and frustration coursing through my mind. As I stopped by the break room to grab a cup of coffee I was approached by Detective Mendoza. A veteran of the Missing Persons Division, "I see we will be working together." I continued walking as I responded, "Not as if I have a choice; but lets go meet the boy."
We pulled up to a small home in the Heights district at 5am, I observed several cars in the driveway and individuals waiting on the porch. I saw two grown men, both African American talking with local PD and visibly frustrated. I gathered this was due to a delay in response time. Mendoza and myself exited the unit, and began walking up to the home.
"Good morning, this is the Perkins' residence correct? This is Detective Hawkins and I'm Detective Mendoza." He stated, equally trying to gauge the situation.
"WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU ASSHOLES ALWAYS LATE WHEN COMING OUT HERE, WE GOT KIDS TOO." One of the men shouted at Mendoza.
Mendoza was certainly not Griffin and it showed, as Mendoza carefully expressed his concern regarding the response time and explained the nature of the situation across the city. Though not completely quelled, the argument did end there.
"James is inside with his boy, they are waiting on you now." The second man on the porch stated as he smoked a cigarette.
Walking in, I could see this was a home without a woman's touch, beer cans and coke cans littered most of the counter tops, and a disheveled man sat on the couch with his son. The father, James Perkins, sat there the very image of lost. His eyes staring far off into the wall. They kind of man the world continues to beat down even when they have had enough.
"Mr. Perkins, I'm Detective Hawkins, I'm with the Missing Persons Division and I'm here to speak with you regarding your daughters disappearance this morning. Do you have a moment." I asked, trying to he courteous.
"I don't know what happened, I put Janice and Zach down to bed. I woke up to Zach screaming and the lights were off. He wouldn't stop screaming, it was such horrible screaming." He stated as tears began to fall down his face. "When I walked into his room there were things all over the walls, written in blood. GOD I HOPE IT'S NOT HER BLOOD!" He sobbed.
I instructed Mendoza to continue with the father as I checked out the children's room. As I walked through the door I could smell the acrid stench of iron and blood. And on the wall was a horrible display. The endless serpent was drawn in blood on the wall. Words written above and below it reading:
"A Stranger, the Forgotten, has returned."
"I know who took her sir." A small voice uttered behind me; causing me to jump and reach for my pistol.
There stood Zach at the door, tears running his face. A small boy, maybe 8 years old wearing Spider-Man pajamas.
"I'm sorry son, you scared me a bit, lets step out of the room so we can speak together." I guided him to the kitchen where we sat at the table to talk. "You said you know who took your sister?"
Looking down at the floor, still weeping the boy slowly spoke. "Yes, he's our friend, but he doesn't seem like a friend anymore."
"So he's a family friend? " I asked, now hoping that this may be resolvable quickly.
"No, like a secret friend for Janice and me, he didn't let us tell dad about him. He said it was our secret, and that we could have amazing things if we kept it a secret. He said we would go somewhere very special." He said, becoming more animated as he spoke about this "friend."
"Do you know your friends name, or where this special place is? I asked.
He paused in thought before responding," He never gave us his name, just said he was a stranger and our friend. I don't know about the special place, but it is supposed to be different. Like here, but different."
I began to become more concerned, this had the sound of something sadistic, or disgusting like the pedophiles might say when coaching small children. I was interrupted in thought by Zach who continued speaking about this friend of his.
"He doesn't look nice though; he speaks nice, but doesn't look nice. He looks very scary. Like a monster." Zach said, his voice beginning to break.
"Describe him to son, so I can have an idea of who we are looking for." I asked, wondering now, where this story might lead.
"Today was the first time we saw him, he always stayed in the shadow behind the door so we couldn't see him. He wouldn't let us close to him, he would only talk. He is big, very very big, but seemed bigger today than the shadow. He was too scary to look at, big and kind of green like a lizard, I closed my eyes and began screaming." He said as tears began to roll down his cheeks.
My brow began to furrow and I was trying to read this child, many years of lying scum bags, they always have a tell, but I couldn't see this being a lie. His posture, his sadness, his reactions all to real. Perhaps a costume, but something about this story seemed real.
I gave the boy my thanks for his information, and we finished with the interviews on site. I asked Mendoza to drop me off at home as we needed as much rest as possible before we continued with the investigation. I asked him to come grab me by 1pm to continue. When I arrived home, I placed my keys on the counter and headed for the couch and laid down. As I rested there I heard movement from my room. Cautiously, I grabbed my pistol and walked into my room. There sitting at my small desk, was Janice.
"Detective, The Stranger is coming out to play." She said, as she giggled. The lights flickered and she was gone, writing now on my wall.
"A Stranger, the Forgotten, has returned."

  • The WWF is the source of most of the news this week, and the first major thing is the Superstars taping on June 1. Dave was in Oakland and gives a full recap of the show. They had 12,120 in attendance (around 9,000 paid) and a gate around $110,000. Dave compliments the show’s atmosphere and WWF’s commitment to putting on a show, even if their style has some drawbacks. He does say that for an arena show, 29 matches is normally way too many, but since it was a tv taping, you know what you’re getting yourself into. Everyone who complains about modern tv tapings, be glad you weren’t going to these. They managed a good pace overall and kept the entire taping under 4 hours (last year’s taping in San Francisco was nearly 5 hours and had fans booing everyone in the last hour because they just wanted to see Hogan and get their money’s worth before leaving). Anyway, if you know 1980s Dave, you know his first major complaint is always going to be about unannounced changes to the advertised card. All during their tv hype for this, they were pushing Honkytonk vs. Beefcake with Jimmy Hart banned from the building. They forgot about that last bit and Jimmy was there. Then they talked about how the next show in town, Jimmy would be banned from the building. They also advertised free t-shirts to all fans in attendance, and they didn’t come through on that. Dave thinks it’s a real swing and a miss - 12,000 fans all wearing a Randy Savage t-shirt would have been a remarkable sight and been really effective. Anyway, Dave thinks most were pretty happy with the show as a whole.
  • I’m not going to go through everything on this taping, because Dave seriously covers all 29 matches, but here are some highlights and even that’s a lot. Dave gives a Brady Boone vs. Steve Lombardi dark match 3.25 stars. WWF is now doing all announcing from their studio in Connecticut, so no live announcing in the arena or even intros for each hour of the taping, which makes it hard to tell what’s going to be on what week’s show. That said, this did help things along in terms of speed. They had Slick do an interview introducing the Big Boss Man, and because they didn’t really work to change his look, he got some chants of “Bubba, Bubba” from those who recognized him. Dave takes the time to comment on Warrior’s utter lack of conditioning, as he was winded before he could even finish his entrance and could barely beat his chest. He says it’s a real statement to call anyone a worse worker than Andre the Giant right now, but Warrior has him beat by a mile. Bossman’s tv debut match was against Louie Spicoli. He squashed Spicoli in about a minute or so, then cuffed him to the ropes and beat him with his nightstick. The Hart Foundation has reunited as a face team and kicked Jimmy Hart to the curb. Rick Rude has a lot of heat thanks to the angle with Jake Roberts, and Dave can’t remember the last time a heel was so universally hated. At most he had a dozen women cheering for him, while everyone else was against him. Don Muraco “chased” Jimmy Hart to the back in an angle clearly setting him and Greg Valentine up for a feud and potentially writing Billy Graham off as a manager, but Jimmy ran so much faster that he beat him to the back by a mile and a guy behind Dave joked that Jimmy Hart is the best athlete on the show. The Rockers re-debuted for WWF and have made it two days with the company, doubling their previous record for WWF tenure. Dave thinks Michaels and Janetty are exactly what WWF needs: a babyface tag team with a rock and roll gimmick (WWF has never done that before, while other promotions have overdone it) and they got a good reaction. Dave makes an ill-advised comparison between Beefcake being over big in the area because he’s billed from San Francisco to “taking pride in living in the AIDS capital of the world.” I think we can expect letters about that in the coming weeks. Badnews Brown is doing a thing with the raising a black gloved hand in the air and Dave thinks it would have been really over if this were 1969, but it’s about 20 years too late to really strike that iron effectively and Dave jokes that you’d think Verne Gagne came up with that one until you realize he only just learned last year that baseball broke the color barrier. Dave compliments Rude again and says he’s such a good heel that Dave doesn’t even like watching him. By hour 3, fans were catching on with the Bossman’s gimmick and it was getting some good heat. The Hart Foundation’s first face match saw them beat a face jobber team and wrestle like heels while playing to the crowd like faces. The crowd was a bit confused, but Dave thinks faces who wrestle like heels could get over well once the crowd shakes off the classical conditioning. He especially compliments Bret’s fake knee injury as the best thing on the card and best sell of a fake knee injury he’s ever seen in WWF. Fans started leaving after the 26th match on the show and by the time the DiBiase vs. Savage (with Elizabeth) match happened, there were fewer than 7,000 left (and under 4,000 left by the finish). Dave quips that they probably left after seeing what Liz was wearing. Sure, Dave.
Watch: Big Boss Man makes his WWF tv debut
  • Electronic Media Magazine wrote a pretty frank kayfabe-breaking note in their May 23 issue, and they predict Ted DiBiase as the next WWF champ. They say:
While sports prognostication is normally a risky business, the scenario of who becomes the World Wrestling Federation’s champ is scripted out months in advance. It’s based on the popularity of the wrestler, not his record, according to the results each performer inspires in WWF’s multimillion dollar merchandising sales. Based on that criteria, insiders are laying odds that the next WWF champion will be “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase. But look for Hulk Hogan to reclaim the crown in a matter of months.
  • Anyway, Dave gives his thoughts on this prediction. Dave figures Hogan’s a draw with or without the belt, so he’ll probably be paired with Bossman and Andre for the fall while Savage needs the belt right now to remain a draw. He’s reminded of New Japan 1983, where everyone assumed the boom from January to August was due to Inoki and without him things would stall out, and the same would be the case for WWF this summer without Hogan. New Japan didn’t stall and that eventually led to the split that created the original UWF. WWF doesn’t have to worry about anything like that happening, but it’s conceivable that WWF continuing fine without Hogan could reduce Hogan’s pull because the company would know they can weather through without him. So Dave thinks, given that and how far behind the NWA is, that keeping the belt on Savage for the time being (provided he still remains able to draw) is the smart move. Ultimately, when Savage loses the belt comes down to Hogan’s ego and whether Hogan feels he needs the belt and if he’ll demand it when he returns, if he’ll have patience, or if he’ll leave the company if he can’t just call his shots. If Savage does stop drawing, by all means transition to DiBiase then Hogan, but right now Savage is working as an attraction and it’s best to work in such a way where you can have two of those (Hogan and Savage) rather than only just one. It may even be better to have Savage as champion since Hogan only works weekends and tv, rather than the full schedule like Savage does.
  • WWF is also expanding their schedule again beginning on July 7. They’ll be running a fourth touring group to hit small towns they used to consider too small to be worth going to and do charity shows. Dave interprets this as WWF’s attempt to deliver a killing blow to the other promotions that are currently run pretty ragged. The charity shows, for instance, are most probably designed to be able to snipe charity deals from smaller promotions because WWF will be able to offer a more lucrative product in place of, say, a charity show run by Ron Fuller. It also opens roster spots up for WWF, which means plenty of room to hire disaffected NWA guys.
  • Finally, on to something not WWF: Chigusa Nagayo appears to be preparing to retire from All Japan Women. The promotion is planning a huge show in a baseball stadium to commemorate her retirement. Chigusa is easily the most popular and highest paid woman wrestler in the history of the business, and she’s only 23. The implications for All Japan Women are huge. They just had three other key retirements recently, including Devil Masami, Dump Matsumoto, and Yukari Omori. For big draws from their golden era of 1984-86, they only have Lioness Asuka left, and her popularity is significantly down from its 1985 peak. Surprisingly, it looks like AJW wants her gone just as much as she wants to be gone. Maybe she’s outgrown the company and become difficult to deal with, maybe the promotion doesn’t feel they need her enough that they need to submit to her demands. There’s also the fact that since she has had her peak popularity, the promotion is worried that keeping her as the main attraction will make the promotion look bad for being centered around a fading star (Dave gives examples like Dusty in the NWA, Inoki in New Japan, the original Sheik in Detroit, the Von Erichs in WCCW, Lawler in Memphis, etc.). Just as the Beauty Pair (Nancy Kumi and Jackie Sato) and Mimi Hagiwara gave way to the Crush Girls (Lioness Asuka and Chigusa Nagayo), so too must the Crush Girls give way to the next big stars, and AJW seems to want Yumiko Hotta and Mitsuko Nishiwaki to be the next major stars.
  • Chigusa leaving will be a big blow to AJW for a long while, but if they can get these new wrestlers over, they can build up again. The company and Chigusa both know that she can’t be on top forever and she has nowhere to go but down from being the top star of the women’s wrestling industry. Chigusa has numerous options available to her. She has a clothing company, can use her celebrity to do game shows, and could even gather wrestlers together and start her own promotion, as some of the speculation suggests. Dave spends a bit of time describing Japanese teen idol culture and concludes that it’s very fun to follow how it all works and how it intersects with wrestling. Anyway, this is all a bit premature and a false alarm (the part about Chigusa retiring - all the implications of what would happen upon her retirement is super interesting and important to consider). Chigusa will do a tour in the U.S. and Canada later this year and will return to AJW in the fall, before retiring for the first time in 1989 (she’ll unretire in 1993.
  • The June issue of Washington Monthly has a piece on commission regulation of pro wrestling. Mostly it kind of laughs at how wrestling is regulated currently. It’s written by the same guy who wrote the Penthouse piece on the Von Erichs that’s in development hell. That’s tentatively scheduled for the September issue now, by the way.
  • There were three shows in Oregon last weekend: Owen, Haynes, and McMahon. Haynes put on his championship tournament final and won that in front of a crowd, while Owen did a kids get in free gimmick and had Buddy Rose vs. the Assassin in a bullrope match to main event. WWF, however, drew their biggest crowd ever in Oregon on May 30, getting 7,500 people (Hogan never even cracked 5,000 in Portland).
  • Also, the advertised Hennig vs. DeBeers AWA title match in Salem Oregon on May 19 did not happen, as expected. Hennig was no longer champion and didn’t even show up, so they made a battle royal the main event. Matt Borne won. DeBeers claimed in an promo that “Verne Gagne has put economic sanctions on me.”
  • The IWGP Title is currently held up because of silliness involving Riki Choshu. The main event on May 27 was originally supposed to be Fujinami defending against Seiji Sakaguchi, but Riki Choshu complained and got inserted as challenger instead. The finish to the match, which to be clear was obviously a work due to the fact that Fujinami took his boot off, involved the ring breaking and Fujinami “spraining” his ankle. So Choshu attacks the ankle, Fujinami removes his boot and tries to fight on, but they stop the match and rule it a no contest. Choshu says that since it was an accident, he didn’t want to win the title that way, so the belt is held up until the June 24 show in Osaka.
  • Owen Hart also won the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight title on the same night. He’ll likely drop the title before the end of the tour, but he is scheduled for another tour in late August, which throws a wrench in Dave’s understanding of any plans he has vis a vis WWF.
  • Adrian Adonis is being cheered in New Japan. He was a big star here several years back and the fans still remember him. He’s definitely put on a lot of weight since those days, though, so the fans have also been pretty shocked by his physique.
  • Steve Williams is probably not going back to New Japan any time ever. He’s skipped out on too many tours and they weren’t happy about that.
  • UWF has announced their June 11 card. They’ve got Maeda vs. Takada in the main event and Kazuo Yamazaki vs. Norman Smiley. The show is already sold out (7,000 seats at a price of $28/ticket = $106,000). All Japan has a show in the same building a week earlier and tickets are selling slowly. UWF is trying to get Bob Backlund in against Maeda for their December show, but that’s conditional on getting Backlund to do the job. Good news from the future: Backlund will be on the show. We’ll get into the details and how plans change down the line.
  • Devil Masami came out of retirement for JWP’s May 28 show. JWP was going to fold on May 29, but they managed to draw 4,000 fans and are going to do occasional spot shows from here on out. Dave says those shows will be “promoted by the local mob” and that may or may not be snark, I’m honestly not sure.
  • No real news from All Japan Women beyond the Chigusa Nagayo situation. Retirement rumors are swirling, and Leilani Kai beat her in a non-title match on May 28, so it might be that they’re prepping Kai as her retirement match.
  • The lineup for the second NWA Clash of Champions has changed. Barry Windham will now be wrestling Brad Armstrong in what’s sure to be a fantastic match if it’s given time. TBS’s press release about the show gave Dusty the biggest bio (no surprise) which called him “one of the two biggest stars in professional wrestling today, along with Ric Flair.” Dave notes that Windham’s bio calls him the “frequent tag team partner of Lex Luger,” so obviously these are a touch dated. Clash shows are set for September 7 and December 7 as well.
  • [NWA] Jimmy Garvin did a great promo on the June 4 TBS show. He admitted he’s married to Precious and really heated up the rivalry with Kevin Sullivan. Dave thinks it’s no coincidence they’re doing this at the same time as Rick Rude is feuding with Jake Roberts over Jake’s wife. It’s a formula that gets over big.
  • NWA is putting a lot of hype into Luger vs. Flair at the Great American Bash, and it’s getting lots of buzz among fans. Most people Dave talks to think they might even put the title on Luger. Nothing’s certain yet, but they’re definitely doing good work in the build here.
  • [WWF] Islander Tama (Sam Fatu, aka Tonga Kid) has quit WWF. That leaves the islanders as Siva Afi and Haku, which really sucks because Tama and Haku worked really well together and Siva is… not great. Dave’s heard two stories here. One is that he was upset with his Wrestlemania paycheck and the other is that he was upset with how Sika was let go and the rest of the family put pressure on him to follow suit.
  • [WWF] At the Rochester, MN tapings on May 11, Vince apparently gave a speech about the evils of steroids. According to the speech, being on tv will make you larger than life and you won’t need steroids because you’re on tv. This all stems from an employee in some auditorium finding a needle and leftover steroids backstage after a WWF show and accidentally getting stuck by the needle and freaking out about potentially getting AIDS. Remember, kids, don’t share needles.
  • Terry Taylor is coming to the WWF to work as a babyface. I think he’s too chicken to try being a WWF heel.
  • There’s talk of WWF doing a feud between Cheryl Roberts and Raven. No, not Scott Levy. Cheryl is, of course, Jake Roberts’ wife. Raven is Rick Rude’s valet, played by his sister Nancy.
  • TV in Memphis to set up the June 6 Hennig vs. Lawler match was really hot. They had Hennig in studio making fun of a local car dealer and attacking him, then later demanding Lawler come out and when Lawler didn’t come out he destroyed the studio. Lawler only came out when Hennig threatened to beat the shit out of Lance Russell if Lawler didn’t come out by the count of 10. Of course, they kind of undercut some of the tension by having the Toyota dealer promise to refund the fans if Lawler doesn’t win on June 6.
  • WCCW’s Memorial Day card in Fort Worth drew roughly 1,500 (5,000 claimed on tv). That’s the biggest crowd they’ve had in a long time. Plans for Lawler to come work with Kerry Von Erich appear to be shelved - he’s coming in on June 17-19, but he’ll be working with Terry Taylor and Iceman King Parsons instead.
  • Makhan Singh is a heel and currently feuding with Kerry Brown in Stampede, but appears to be developing a cult following. He’s doing well on promos and he’s doing color commentary with Ed Whalen and a lot of folks feel like his work on the desk has significantly improved the show. So he’s developing a fanbase that quite likely will cheer for him. Can you believe that this guy winds up being Bastion Booger?
  • Dave gives a June 1 Continental match between Tom Prichard and Tony Anthony 4 stars. It was a 9 minute first blood match and Prichard bled first, but Danny Davis wiped the blood off him to keep the referee none the wiser.
  • In USA Wrestling, Doug Furnas almost won the Tennessee championship from Buddy Landel in a tv match, but Guerrero shenanigans kept the gold off him. Furnas won clean, but Hector Guerrero slipped a foreign object into Furnas’s trunks and told the ref, who reversed the decision promptly upon discovering the weapon. Guess we can see where Eddie got his ideas from.
Watch: Hector Guerrero lies, cheats, and steals
  • Over in Europe, Otto Wanz still reigns supreme. Scott Hall is over there right now working for him, and Wanz is defending his version of the world title against Bruiser Brody on July 9. Apparently he got Andre the Giant back in January and Andre did a job for him too. Well, it was December, and it was by countout, but yes.
Watch: Otto Wanz vs. Andre the Giant, December 1987
  • AWA is looking for a new booker. They fired Wahoo McDaniel and Ray Stevens for running their own independent show in Virginia without telling AWA about it. Just in case you thought Vince was the first promoter to not like his guys running their own shows.
  • Windy City Wrestling is holding a show on July 16 at DePaul University and they’re hoping to get Brody in to wrestle Nord the Barbarian in a cage match. Brody is already booked that weekend, though, so if he doesn’t come, it’s because he’ll be in Puerto Rico. He really should have picked Chicago that weekend.
  • There’s a really fascinating letter about the western Pennsylvania wrestling scene from the 1950s and into the 70s. They used to get tv from the International Amphithetre in Chicago featuring guys like Thesz, Gagne, Buddy Rogers, the Lisowskis, and others and the letter writer wonders if anyone still has the old film of those matches sitting on a shelf somewhere. They did, and there’s a youtube channel dedicated to all this old wrestling: The Chicago Film Archive. Anyway, by the late 50s, tv wrestling in Pittsburgh got taken over by a live studio show from Philadelphia every Saturday, but it wasn’t very good and then another promoter took over the tv there and you had guys like Waldo Von Erich, the Tolos Brothers, Ilio DePaolo, and others. Soon after, Toots Mondt (an associate of Vince McMahon Sr.) started romoting in the area and brought in the best of the NWA at the time - Argentina Rocca, Buddy Rogers, the Kangaroos, Haystacks Calhoun, Sweet Daddy Siki, and a young Bruno Sammartino. But the biggest star was the Crusher (Reggie Lisowski), who started heel and became even bigger when he turned face, and in his later years they tried turning him heel again to go against Bruno, but the feud died because his appeal was gone and turning him heel was a mistake (this is weirdly reminiscent of Steve Austin’s trajectory and the mistake of his heel turn, it feels like). When Bruno became the champ, that was shortly after WWWF broke off the NWA and the local shows started to die off as he went on tour, but the big shows still did well and there was still a surge of excitement and popularity. Big monthly shows in the local arena did well, but rarely sold out. Things went bad when Bruno dropped the title to Ivan Koloff and wrestling interest dropped significantly and it wasn’t until Bruno got the title back that things interest started rising again. It’s really remarkable how important a figure Bruno was in the western Pennsylvania scene at the time.
  • A writer asks Dave if he thinks Flair should consider jumping to WWF, and Dave responds. He says there’s a bigger chance of it happening now than at any previous point (not that he’s saying Flair will jump, just that the circumstances are most favorable to a jump right now), and that does make it an interesting question. If they wanted to, they could go all in on Flair and he’d be a big draw. But because Flair’s synonymous with the NWA, there’s a lot of ways they could sabotage that because of the egos at play and the need to show that they’ve been better than the NWA all along (see WWE and anything remotely WCW in the past 19 years). And some of the reasons they might convince themselves Flair wouldn’t get over with their audience are even valid: Flair thrives in long matches and WWF doesn’t really do those. He’s pushing 40, and that’s pretty old (ha!). So yeah, if Flair were to be the top of the card in WWF, that would feel to some like an admission that the NWA is on par with the WWF, and that won’t sit well with some of the suits with big egos. But at Flair’s age, a run with WWF to make the big bucks and work shorter matches is likely to have some appeal - he’s an old man in a young man’s game, and he’s got to know that. Well, let’s look at what Ric Flair had to say about the idea of being too old to do it and retirement, about 20 years later.
Watch: Ric Flair’s thoughts on being an old man in a young man’s game and retirement
  • Another letter asks Dave for some more information on his sources for the OWF debut and the World Class Texas Stadium show. Basically, some quibbles about attendance in the former, including asking for clarification on what Dave meant when he said the crowd had “a higher class of fan, similar to a WWF crowd.” In the case of the World Class stuff, the writer straight up disagrees on the quality of the latter and asks Dave to be more positive about WCCW for the sake of the business. Dave goes ahead and answers the challenge. He names the source for his claim on the “higher class of fan,” which he meant in terms of socioeconomic class: Mike Rodgers, who publishes the major newsletter on the region called Ring Around the Northwest. Rodgers has been following wrestling in the area enough to know what kinds of crowds different promotions draw in the area and Dave stands by Mike’s assessment. As for World Class, Dave had 21 letters from those who attended the show and all but four (and those four include this letter Dave is responding to) considered the show subpar, and Dave makes sure to clarify that he didn’t call it subpar, but that he reported fan reception as indicating it was subpar. Dave even called a contact who knows the regulars for WCCW’s shows in the area after getting this letter and asked him what people generally thought, and that contact also reported general disappointment. As to being more positive about WCCW, Dave gives credit where due (he was very positive on Michael Hayes as a booker), but the promotion is showing no signs of a turnaround. It’s loads better than it was when Fritz was still in charge, but they’re still flubbing basic business in so many ways and making terrible booking choices and Dave can’t just give them a pass for that. There’s also some stuff about WWF in here where the writer calls WWF fans idiots and claims nobody intelligent would pay to go to a WWF show, and Dave mentions that he has paid to go to WWF shows and finds them enjoyable as a social outing with friends, even if he’s not interested in their wrestling enough to go on his own. So yeah. Mostly included the stuff on this letter because it’s a peek behind the curtain of Dave’s contacts and how he gauged fan reactions back in the day.
  • Also, Percy Pringle is playing face and holding the mic for interviews on World Class tv now. Dave says his facial expressions are hilarious, and I’m demanding we get a Percy Pringle facial reactions subreddit and simp account like the Alexa Bliss one asap.

2020.11.19 17:14 _ProdiG_ Making sense of the Rockets move so far (or trying rly hard to do so)

Making sense of Houston’s moves so far. (Or trying rly hard to do so)
Why our trades so far might actually not be that bad.
Hey its me again trying to defend these trades only to probably find out in a couple of days that the possible logic im taking is probably wrong because tilman is a cheap ass.
  1. Why trade RoCo and not Gordon?
- Gordon can play guard. RoCo strugles even against some SF's. Why is this relevant? Because when it comes to FA looking for the MLE this year that could fit us, there are a lot more Big Man than they are guards, therefore trading Gordon would hinder us there. With Austin Rivers most likely leaving, we would be completely depleted of Ball Handlers past Harden and Russ. So it makes sense there. Also, we are selling HIGH on Covington which is always good and trading Gordon would be selling LOW
  1. Why make the trade at all?
- If we can sign a good FA big man (Wood, Ibaka, Baynes), those become assets, for free, that we can later use to trade to contenders if we end up rebuilding. If we end up getting one of these guys either Via S&T up to 12M or via MLE up to 9.5M we are basically getting a free asset. Now, it will never be as good as Covington but remember that if we kept Covington we wouldnt be able to use our MLE and so this new asset wouldnt be acquired for FREE
-If we do get a good MLE FA (Which i like to assumem we will otherwise we wouldnt have made this move) essentially we traded Covington for
Traded away: Robert Covington, 5.5M in cash considerations
Got back : (Wood, Ibaka, Baynes), 2021 FRP Via DET( top 16 pro), 2021 FRP via Port(lottery protected).

Looking at it like that it doesnt sound like a bad deal at all does it?

  1. THE FLEXIBILITY ASPECT
-We know that there is a chance that Harden doesnt back down from his trade demand, and from that standpoint this trade is genius. Pick 16 would be a huge shot in the Dark without the Harden deal done. We'd be drafting blindly without knowing what our needs would be and thats a terrible idea 99% of the time. We managed to delay that decision by essentially delaying our pick from a weak draft into a pick further into the future possibly in a better draft. This is a really smart Idea here.
We basically Dumped Ariza, Created a TPE for an exchange in FRP's that grants us more flexibility in trading Harden and Russ. It also helps if we want to trade these picks away becausee a pick in a future draft is a lot more valuable an d flexible than drafting a rookie that our potential trade Partner doesnt like.
So, Like most Houston Rockets trades recently, this will be a genius or a bad move later on when we decide what to do. Right now, lets not jump the gun just YET

BONUS: There is a possiblitty that there is a S&T for Christian Wood envolved in our Detroit deal. DETROIT JUST DRAFTED A PF IN THIS DRAFT. That signals that they arent keeping Wood. They have Blake and the guy they drafted at 16 was a huge reach which means if they wanted they coulda drafted any other position of need, but they decided to draft a PF.
If this waas the case why wouldnt WOJ have reported it already? Because it would be TAMPERING. The deal Milwaukee had in place for Bogdanovich fell through because it was leaked too early and there were tampering concerns. Woj couldnt tell us the full extent of our deal yet. HOWEVER, he did hint at us being HARD CAPPED and this only happens if we perform a S&T or use our NON TAXPAYER MLE. So, if WOJ already assumed we are Hard Capped, its fair speculation that a S&T is in the works. Very rarely does a reporter like woj use certain wording without it having proper meaning

-We know that there is a chance that Harden doesnt back down from his trade demand, and from that standpoint this trade is genius. Pick 16 would be a huge shot in the Dark without the Harden deal done. We'd be drafting blindly without knowing what our needs would be and thats a terrible idea 99% of the time. We managed to delay that decision by essentially delaying our pick from a weak draft into a pick further into the future possibly in a better draft. This is a really smart Idea here.
We basically Dumped Ariza, Created a TPE for an exchange in FRP's that grants us more flexibility in trading Harden and Russ. It also helps if we want to trade these picks away becausee a pick in a future draft is a lot more valuable an d flexible than drafting a rookie that our potential trade Partner doesnt like.
So, Like most Houston Rockets trades recently, this will be a genius or a bad move later on when we decide what to do. Right now, lets not jump the gun just YET

BONUS: There is a possiblitty that there is a S&T for Christian Wood envolved in our Detroit deal. DETROIT JUST DRAFTED A PF IN THIS DRAFT. That signals that they arent keeping Wood. They have Blake and the guy they drafted at 16 was a huge reach which means if they wanted they coulda drafted any other position of need, but they decided to draft a PF.
If this waas the case why wouldnt WOJ have reported it already? Because it would be TAMPERING. The deal Milwaukee had in place for Bogdanovich fell through because it was leaked too early and there were tampering concerns. Woj couldnt tell us the full extent of our deal yet. HOWEVER, he did hint at us being HARD CAPPED and this only happens if we perform a S&T or use our NON TAXPAYER MLE. So, if WOJ already assumed we are Hard Capped, its fair speculation that a S&T is in the works. Very rarely does a reporter like woj use certain wording without it having proper meaning

2020.11.19 16:05 _ProdiG_ Making sense of the Houston Rockets moves so far. (Or at least trying really hard to do so)

Why our trades so far might actually not be that bad.
BASELINE: THIS WAS ALWAYS TO STAY UNDER THE TAX BUT THATS A GIVEN, NEVER EXPECTED TILMAN TO PAY IT
Hey its me again trying to defend these trades only to probably find out in a couple of days that the possible logic im taking is probably wrong because tilman is a cheap ass.
  1. Why trade RoCo and not Gordon?
- Gordon can play guard. RoCo strugles even against some SF's. Why is this relevant? Because when it comes to FA looking for the MLE this year that could fit us, there are a lot more Big Man than they are guards, therefore trading Gordon would hinder us there. With Austin Rivers most likely leaving, we would be completely depleted of Ball Handlers past Harden and Russ. So it makes sense there. Also, we are selling HIGH on Covington which is always good and trading Gordon would be selling LOW
  1. Why make the trade at all?
- If we can sign a good FA big man (Wood, Ibaka, Baynes), those become assets, for free, that we can later use to trade to contenders if we end up rebuilding. If we end up getting one of these guys either Via S&T up to 12M or via MLE up to 9.5M we are basically getting a free asset. Now, it will never be as good as Covington but remember that if we kept Covington we wouldnt be able to use our MLE and so this new asset wouldnt be acquired for FREE
-If we do get a good MLE FA (Which i like to assumem we will otherwise we wouldnt have made this move) essentially we traded Covington for
Traded away: Robert Covington, 5.5M in cash considerations
Got back : (Wood, Ibaka, Baynes), 2021 FRP Via DET( top 16 pro), 2021 FRP via Port(lottery protected).
