(Credit for the below list has to be given to u/BurritoFueled, who created the original list in 2014 and updated it a year later. Almost two-thirds of the items below are still from that original list. All I’ve done with the list is revive it a little bit by updating dead links and making little tweaks when necessary. Also, thanks to those that submitted new additions to the list last week. Over a third of the below items are new and a lot of the original items have had newer information added onto them.)
People are always looking for something to do around here. Maybe you’re a transplant, unaware of what this area has to offer, or maybe you’re a lifelong resident, tired of the same old thing. Well friend, if you fall into the latter category, do not despair. There’s actually plenty of things to do in the Sacramento area – things of interest to almost any lifestyle, personality, or budget.
So, whether you’re an athlete, geek, eccentric, hipster, weirdo, sexual deviant or just a normal person looking for a new activity, below is a list of activities for you to try. Please note that it includes only activities that take place at least a few times a year – no one-off events or festivals here.
Enjoy this list. If you have any suggestions of your own to add, comment below in this thread. I'll try to keep this as up to date as possible.
Away we go.

2020.08.14 18:43 biggreekgeek Flatten the Curve. #47. Keep Calm and Carry On meme was/is Propaganda. Pentagon MEME Warfare Center. Bill Gates Gene Drive Editing. Pakistan and China Biowarfare Lab Cooperation. Chinese Spy at UC & CRISPR-Cas9/Covid-19 Data? Political Chess at the WHO. AI and Gene Drive Can Stop the Pandemic.

Previous Post Is Here
Propaganda. Real propagandists are good at what they do. Really good. This is why you don't know it's propaganda until after the dust has settled, so to speak. All we can do is look back after the fact.
The truth doesn't always lead to the facts, but the facts always lead to the truth.
I came up with that axiom years ago. It just popped into my head. Don't know why, it just did. But keep that in the back of your head whenever you read fake facts.
So what are the facts and where is the truth? What can we line up in a manner that makes sense. Where do we dig in all this information for the artifacts they try to bury from us?
Let's start at Keep Calm and Carry On. Remember that? It's strange how viral it became, isn’t it? Almost like governments like viral information pandemics they choose, and use fake facts to suppress viral information that isn't good for your mental health, like conspiracy theories.
Have you noticed me using Keep Calm and Carry On a lot? It was on purpose. I wanted to illustrate how easy it is to be bombarded by terms like Keep Calm or New Normal into everyday usage. You don't think it affects the majority of society? Please. They don't spend billions upon billions into advertising just because they like commercials, they do it because it shapes our behavior.
Keep calm and carry on posters weren't mass-produced until 2008. It is a historical object of a very peculiar sort. By 2009, when it had first become hugely popular, it seemed to respond to a particularly English malaise connected directly with the way Britain reacted to the credit crunch and the banking crash. From this moment of crisis, it tapped into an already established narrative about Britain’s “finest hour” – the aerial Battle of Britain in 1940-41 – when it was the only country left fighting the Third Reich.

2008 Financial Crisis.

That's odd timing, isn't it. They we're mass produced. And if you remember there's also strong evidence that the Financial Collapse was probably engineered by China through MBS manipulation.
Let's keep calm and dig on.
This was similar to the “Keep calm and carry on shopping” commanded by George W Bush both after September 11 and when the sub-prime crisis hit America. The wartime use of this rhetoric escalated during the economic turmoil in the UK; witness the slogan of the 2010-15 coalition government, “We’re all in this together”.
What a wonderful world we live in. Keep calm. It's all good. Nothing to fear but fear itself. Right? Because there is nothing strange about President Bush using that phrase after 9/11, or the coalition UK government saying we're all in this together. Aren't we hearing more and more about how we're all in this pandemic together? Do you really believe this is by chance? Remember, world leaders have speech writers and world wide PR firms. And let's not forget that Afghanistan seemed to be more than about a former CIA asset against the Soviet Union hiding in a cave after he brought down the World Trade Towers using terrorists who didn't pass flight school.
So the slogan started in WW2 and it was created by the British Ministry of Information. That alone should make you hit pause, ask WTH, and rewind to see what else was missed.
Memetics: A Growth Industry in US Military operations was published in 2005 by Michael Prosser, now a Lieutenant Colonel in the Marine Corps. He proposed the creation of a 'Meme Warfare Center'.
Memetic warfare has been seriously studied as an important concept with respects to information warfare by NATO's Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence. Jeff Giesea, writing in NATO's Stratcom COE Defense Strategic Communications journal, defines memetic warfare as "competition over narrative, ideas, and social control in a social-media battlefield. One might think of it as a subset of ‘information operations’ tailored to social media. Information operations involve the collection and dissemination of information to establish a competitive advantage over an opponent".

2008 Cyberattack

The 2008 cyberattack on the United States was the "worst breach of U.S. military computers in history". The defense against the attack was named "Operation Buckshot Yankee". It led to the creation of the United States Cyber Command.
That code spread undetected on both classified and unclassified systems, establishing what amounted to a digital beachhead, from which data could be transferred to servers under foreign control. It was a network administrator's worst fear: a rogue program operating silently, poised to deliver operational plans into the hands of an unknown adversary.
As usual, the suspect was Russia. Blame Russia. They stole the cookies from the cookie jar. But we have the 2008 financial collapse at the same time. Now this either points to Russia did it alone, Russia did it with China, China did it alone and Russia is the scapegoat to keep us in the dark, or an unknown party attempted to gain access. The third option is unlikely.
So we had a financial collapse. Keep calm and carry on posters mass produced in the same year. A cyberattack. All in 2008. That's a very busy year, isn’t it? It's almost like 2015.
Almost like they took control of the narrative information flow before the information went viral and an uncontrolled narrative sprang up from the information.
And that narrative control is growing and getting stronger. Let's think about the Sentinel world simulation program. Or rather, simulations simultaneously simulated to simulate simulation possibilities. (Maybe I should write Dr. Suess kids books for the New Normal kids of tomorrow?) In other words, they can plan back up plans for back up plans. But as the simulations grow more accurate and Sentinel learns from it's mistakes, the simulations will grow in accuracy, and the machine could very well become pre-cognitive. Yes that's an outlandish proposition, but so was flying three hundred years ago, or a thinking computer for that matter. You can't dismiss tomorrow's possible advances in science as fiction when today's science was yesterday's science fiction.
ORDO AB CHAO meaning ORDER OUT OF CHAOS.
Yes this can mean creating chaos in events to manufacture order. But on a grand scale it also means to create order in the chaos of reality. It means controlling information before it becomes viral and takes on a life of it's own, becoming an out of control pandemic.
And we don't have a pandemic that's being subjected to a narrative, do we?
Well now that you ask, let's see if I can show some more information to potentially break the sanctioned narrative.
I'm not going to lie, the level of control at this point is frightening, and it's so obvious that it's become normal and nobody notices. It's background noise. A hum. A constant current of conflicting information to increase cognitive confusion to camouflage current events.
After and before the 2008 cyberattack and financial collapse, we had the Great Recession, which began in December 2007 and ended in June 2009, which makes it the longest recession since World War II.
And then there was this.
2009 swine flu pandemic. Analysis of the genetic divergence of the virus in samples from different cases indicated that the virus jumped to humans in 2008, probably after June, and not later than the end of November, likely around September 2008.
Unlike most strains of influenza, the Pandemic H1N1/09 virus does not disproportionately infect adults older than 60 years; this was an unusual and characteristic feature of the H1N1 pandemic.
The 2009 swine flu pandemic was an influenza pandemic that lasted for about 19 months, from January 2009 to August 2010, and was the second of two pandemics involving H1N1 influenza virus (the first being the 1918–1920 Spanish flu pandemic).
Cyber Attack. Economic Crash. Keep Calm and Carry On starts. Great Recession ends. Pandemic.
The timing looks awfully suspicious, doesn't it? It looks rather strategic, doesn't it?
So Let's Keep Calm and Contagion On.
Margaret Chan Fung Fu-chun, OBE, JP, FRCP (born August 21, 1947) is a Chinese-Canadian physician, who served as the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) delegating the People's Republic of China[4] for 2006–2017. Chan has previously served as Director of Health in the Hong Kong Government (1994–2003), representative of the WHO Director-General for Pandemic Influenza and WHO Assistant Director-General for Communicable Diseases (2003–2006). In 2014, Forbes ranked her as the 30th most powerful woman in the world. In early 2018 she joined the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).
And she was followed by another Director General.
Tedros "was supported by a bloc of African and Asian countries, including China, which has considerable influence with those members" while "the US, UK and Canada... lent their support to... the British doctor David Nabarro." One observer called it "a really nasty" election.
There were allegations made of a cover up by the David Nabarro camp about a pandemic in Ethiopia, which were covered by the NY TIMES.
Does this put things in a little better perspective about recent events? President Trump pulls American funding from the WHO, Bill Gates increases funding becoming the number one source of revenue. In other words, it allows the political message to be made, while also removing American legal oversight, yet still leaving or increasing control over the WHO in the hands of Bill Gates.
Recall the DoD advisory board with all the tech gurus? Wasn't the absence of Bill Gates or Microsoft strange? What about all the disparaging statements by Bill towards the President? Yes all of this could be real, but it could also very well be staged. Don't forget about the central point in Unrestricted Warfare, you hide your attacks and confuse the enemy. And the same in Full Spectrum Dominance, you control all the sources of information because you fight in a Gray Zone, where you leave the enemy unbalanced and unsure of factual information.
This is why it's next to impossible to get a handle on all the information, it's by design. We don’t know who's responsible for what. But it's becoming increasingly clear that we are already in a war.
To our way of thinking, a planned stock market crash, a computer virus attack, making the currency exchange rate of an enemy country erratic, and spreading rumors on the Internet about the leaders of an enemy country can all be thought of as new concept weapons.
"Unrestricted Warfare": Military/Civilian Distinctions Break Down "Unrestricted Warfare" means that any methods can be prepared for use, information is everywhere, the battlefield is everywhere, and that any technology might be combined with any other technology, and that the boundaries between war and non-war and between military and non-military affairs has systematically broken down.
Qiao and Wang called for a “revolution in war,” which combines conventional with non-war actions, and military with non-military actions. In an alarming opinion, they stated that war may include a blend of stealth planes and cruise missiles, along with biochemical, financial, and terrorist attacks.
Lawfare • Lawfare, or political action through transnational or non-governmental organizations can effect a policy change that would be impossible otherwise. Because of the international nature of the modern world and activism, it is much easier for nation-states to affect policy in other nation-states through a proxy. Network warfare • One of the better-known alternatives in this book is the idea of attacking networks. Networks are increasingly important in not only data exchange but also transportation, financial institutions, and communication. Attacks that disable networks can easily hamstring large areas of life that are dependent on them for coordination. One example of network warfare would be shutting down a network that supplies power. If there is a significant failure in the power grid caused by the attack, massive power outages could result, crippling industry, defense, medicine, and all other areas of life. Chinese writings over the past two decades have amplified that cross integration of biotechnology, engineering, and information technology will become the new strategic doctrine for future military revolutions, as cited in the October 2015 edition of the Liberation Army Daily. These writings consistently put forth that weaponization of living organisms shall become a reality in the future, with non-traditional combat styles taking center stage. Zhang is a retired general and former president of China’s National Defense University. In the book, Zhang argues that modern biotechnological development is gradually showing strong signs characteristic of an offensive capability, including the possibility of employing “specific ethnic genetic attacks”.
Again, think of the timelines. Think back to one nation in 1989 squashing the revolution. Think about rare earth elements. Was this blackmail to force trade with the west? Are there indicators that point to a greater catastrophe and a war for dominace and survival of culture? There are ample examples in Western National Security papers indicating this. And there are also Asian Security papers indicating the same, which we will look at in a later post.
I do caution you not to interpret all events from a position of West vs East and only the East is attacking the West. Keep in mind that all strategic moves are being made to confuse the adversary and to confuse and demoralize each other's citizens, and also to build up tension amongst their own population in order to increase support for the war. Because the west has been indoctrinated with justifiable wars for human rights, they can't suddenly try to convince us to wage war in a fight over declining resources, the majority would insist on trying to find a solution to the problem for humanity, not to exterminate some humanity as a solution.
In our leaders eyes, we are the problem to the solution. Our leaders believe that we can't handle the truth. This is partly why so many events are still being hidden. This is also why the Keep Calm and Carry On propaganda started. And this is why biological warfare is so vital, because you it's almost impossible to discern whether it's a real virus or a labmade virus by the public. You can guess, but unless your government declared it tentional act of war, how would you truly know. And even when they do, how can you know with one hundred percent certainty that it was? You won't. Want an example? Alright, let's go.
The U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) yesterday revealed charges against two Chinese nationals for their alleged involvement in a decade-long hacking spree targeting dissidents, government agencies, and hundreds of organizations in as many as 11 countries. The 11-count indictment, which was unsealed on Tuesday, alleges LI Xiaoyu (李啸宇) and DONG Jiazhi (董家志) stole terabytes of sensitive data, including from companies developing COVID-19 vaccines, testing technology, and treatments while operating both for private financial gain and behalf of China's Ministry of State Security. "China has now taken its place, alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea, in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals in exchange for those criminals being 'on call' to work for the benefit of the state, [and] to feed the Chinese Communist party's insatiable hunger for American and other non-Chinese companies' hard-earned intellectual property, including COVID-19 research," said Assistant Attorney General John C. Demers, who leads the DoJ's National Security Division.
Hacking companies to get Covid-19 research. A shameful club of nations (How dare you! - Greta Thunberg). Hard earned intellectual property. Those are some pretty emotional trigger (you're triggering me!) words being used, aren't they? Mentioning hard earned intellectual property sounds a lot like making money, doesn't it? But the pandemic is a planet wide catastrophe, isn't it?
Billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates called for COVID-19 drugs and an eventual vaccine to be made available to countries and people that need them most, not to the "highest bidder," saying relying on market forces would prolong the deadly pandemic.
May 04, 2020 • The European Commission pledged $1bn to fund research on a vaccine. Norway matched the European Commission's contribution, and France has pledged €500m, as have Saudi Arabia and Germany. Japan pledged more than $800m. The US and Russia did not take part. China, where the virus originated in December, was represented by its ambassador to the European Union. Of the money raised, $4.4bn will go on vaccine development, some $2bn on the search for a treatment and $1.6bn for producing tests, the EU said. Mr Johnson, who spent three nights in intensive care with Covid-19, was to confirm the UK's pledge of £388m for vaccine research, testing and treatment during the conference. Along with the European Commission, the conference is being co-hosted by the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Norway and Saudi Arabia. "If we can develop a vaccine that is produced by the world, for the whole world, this will be a unique global public good of the 21st Century," they added.
One of these things is not like the other, one of these things is not the same. I understand the controversy over the WHO. But does it make sense to fight over Covid-19 intellectual property rights when the world is at stake? Yes, I know hacking is bad - Edward Snowden makes new claims about American hacking in China. - but so is hiding research and making money off of people's lives when researching goes faster when it's open sourced.
So why would they hide research from China? Why did accusations of China hiding the pandemic start almost immediately a few months ago, just after China shared the mapped Covid-19 genome?
January 11, 2020 • Chinese researchers reveal draft genome of virus implicated in Wuhan pneumonia. Scientists praise decision to make date public; U.S. group sets out to produce live virus from the sequence. Source Here
China shares the information. The American Government accuses China of not sharing it fast enough and hiding information. Then they start a spy ring round up to stop them from stealing information. So why would China have to steal the information if We’re All in This New Normal Together to Flatten the Curve?
July 24, 2020 • As part of a broader offensive against India and Western rivals, Pakistan and China have entered a secret three-year agreement to expand potential bio-warfare capabilities, including several research projects related to the deadly agent anthrax, the Klaxon reported citing multiple intelligence sources. China has been criticised for handling of coronavirus pandemic with speculations that disease could have emerged from Wuhan Institute of Virology, though most experts have discounted the theory. According to the report authored by Anthony Klan, the same lab has signed the covert deal with Pakistan military's Defense Science and Technology Organization (DESTO), to collaborate research in "emerging infectious diseases" and advance studies on the biological control of transmitted diseases.
Propaganda doesn't have to be fake to be propaganda, it only has to shape your outlook and behavior. And let's face it, in the face of an environmental collapse, issues of morality won't be a priority for the majority. Empty stomachs accept the truth, full stomachs fall for lies.
So let's just Keep Calm and Carry On.
July 23, 2020.
Justice Department official: Chinese consulate in Houston ‘went well over the line’ The State Department ordered Beijing to shutter the facility earlier this week.
The USA closes the embassy in Houston, and then the very next day the headline runs about the biological weapons co-operation between China and Pakistan, intended to be used against the West and India. Strange timing, isn’t it? Don't article's of that nature take a while to compile? Maybe not if you only quote unnamed intelligence sources. (I've led an interesting life. I'm like the Greek Forest Gump. I've met "famous" and influential people all my life. From Lawrence Taylor of the NY Giants to Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks from Fresh Prince, and he did the Carlton dance). Not a big deal to me at all, other than experiencing that Hypernormal unreal feeling of seeing the person and not the digital image - and yes it's actually disorienting at first - is what I end up talking about to others. But the other story I talk about is meeting a journalist from the Globe and Mail some twenty years ago, and he warned me to never trust an unnamed source. He insisted that the source was the person standing closet to him who answers a question for the journalist.
Journalist #1 - Hey, do you agree that Sasquatch is real and being kept hidden by the government?
Journalist #2 - Yes I do.

1 - Unnamed intelligence sources claim Sasquatch is being kept hidden by the government.

This narrative about China might be true, or it might not be true. I just want you to be aware of the narrative and how it shapes your perceptions.
There is one final part of this Gray Zone New Normal Narrative left.
UC Davis said Tang left her job as a visiting researcher in the Department of Radiation Oncology in June. Her work was funded by a study-based exchange program affiliated with China’s Ministry of Education, the university said in a statement. Agents have said they believe Tang sought refuge at the consulate after they interviewed her at her home in Davis on June 20. The FBI has been interviewing visa holders in more than 25 American cities suspected of hiding their ties to the Chinese military.
The FBI has been interviewing visa holders across more than 25 American cities. Let that sink in. Swim in it so you don’t drown in the endless distractions that are being thrown at you. The politics are a stage play, and at some point something will happen that will stop the bickering and unite them, and most of the West too. It's only a matter of time now. This is why we witness but don't see the subtle insinuations of ordinary acts being sinister.
In Houston, fire services were called after smoke was seen rising from the compound. US officials said staff, who were given 72 hours to leave the country, were burning documents in its grounds. A Republican senator claimed that the consulate, which covered several southern states, was an “espionage hub”.
Burning documents at a consulate? That never happens! They must be up to no good.
Classified documents and special equipment is to be destroyed according to State Department procedure or, in some instances, taken out (in the case of the evacuation of diplomats in 2014, some equipment not normally destroyed was taken from Libya to Tunisia). The flag will also be removed from the embassy. (Marines lowered the flag in Cuba when the embassy closed in 1961, then raised it again in 2015). The State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding what will happen to the embassy files, or what process the embassy staff will follow to get out of Caracas. Source Here.
Our news articles make it seek like the Chinese Consulate did something out of the ordinary by burning the documents. It's not. It's standard operating procedures. But what about the proof that they we're engaged in espionage? Proof? You don't need proof! Every single Embassy on the planet is engaged in espionage. That's reality.

The vast majority of the agency’s overseas officers are under what is known as “official cover,” which means they are posing as employees of another government agency. The State Department allows hundreds of its positions in embassies around the world to be occupied by CIA officers representing themselves as diplomats. A rarer and more dangerous job category is “nonofficial cover” — or “NOC” (pronounced knock) — in which CIA officers pose as employees of international corporations, as scientists or as members of other professions. Such covers tend to provide a plausible reason to work long periods overseas and come in contact with foreign nationals the agency wants to recruit. Source Here.
China Evil. China Evil. Repeat it enough and it become an accepted narrative. Is the paradigm shift necessary? TPTB think it is. But remember, this is geopolitics, there is no evil. There is just reality. And the reality is Russia, China, and the West, are positioning themselves for natural resource scarcity in the future. If you need greener pastures those pastures can't have a herd already living there, can they? So you spy, plot, and maneuver, all to be ready for the endgame.
Just China spying? Please.

So should we Keep Calm and Carry On? That's a big fat nope. This is the New Normal, and over the next few posts I'll shake the tree more and show you how Keep Calm and Carry On stopped because the New Normal has started and the narrative has changed to alter our perceptions. You don’t start expelling illegal immigrants, trade wars, improve the emergency alert system, ramp up strategic anti-nuclear missle defense, and position military units worldwide in anticipation of repelling an invasion for no reason.
So the Chinese spy that was detained from the SF embassy? She worked at the University of California. So, you might ask, what's your point?

July 16, 2020 • The DNA-cutting proteins central to CRISPR-Cas9 and related gene-editing tools originally came from bacteria, but a newfound variety of Cas proteins apparently evolved in viruses that infect bacteria. The new Cas proteins were found in the largest known bacteria-infecting viruses, called bacteriophages, and are the most compact working Cas variants yet discovered — half the size of today’s workhorse, Cas9. “Adenoviruses are the perfect Trojan horse for delivering gene editors: You can easily program the viruses to reach almost any part in the body,” said Patrick Pausch, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, and in UC Berkeley’s Innovative Genomics Institute (IGI), a joint UC Berkeley/UCSF research group devoted to discovering and studying novel tools for gene editing in agriculture and human diseases. Source Here
Adenoviruses are the perfect Trojan Horse. Gene Drive Editing and CRISPR-Cas9.
December 15, 2017 • The technology is called gene drive. Scientists introduce a genetic defect that can spread rapidly through a population, causing it to die off. A few years ago gene drive was just a theory. But it became a near-reality almost overnight once the CRISPR gene editing system made it easier for scientists to do precise genetic modification. The recently discovered CRISPCas9 system functions like molecular scissors, allowing scientists to modify the DNA of humans and other species with unprecedented ease. Now many groups — including the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency, an agency of the U.S. military — are developing gene drive technology aimed at solving a variety of problems including wiping out disease-carrying insects and eradicating invasive mammals like rodents and rabbits. That brings us to the great email dump last week. Scientists around the world were stunned when dozens of their personal emails suddenly appeared in the public domain — released by an environmental activist who obtained the documents through U.S. freedom of Information laws. The emails reveal a Canadian public relations firm, Emerging Ag Inc., recruiting scientists to participate in an online UN gene-drive forum and notifying them when to jump into the discussions. The emails do reveal a co-ordinated effort to mobilize scientists to defend their research turf, an effort that is funded by deep philanthropic pockets. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has paid $1.6 million US to Emerging Ag for a three-year program to manage the scientists' network, including setting up a website and organizing meetings. The network is so new they haven't decided on an official name, but the working title is the Gene Drive Outreach Network.
Oh Bill. You're so far Ahead of the Curve, aren't you? Hiring a PR firm to shape public opinion, putting the spotlight on you and away from the AI military biowarfare industrial complex.

2020.07.16 20:04 autotldr California buys 18 million child-sized masks for schools as coronavirus continues

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 48%. (I'm a bot)
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - California has begun buying masks made for children as the state continues to adapt to life with the coronavirus.
The state has been sending masks to school districts since the start of the pandemic, and began purchasing child-sized masks last month based on feedback from the districts, said Governor's Office spokesman Brian Ferguson.
Gov. Gavin Newsom hasn't issued any statewide guidance on whether schools should reopen their buildings, saying just one approach doesn't work in a state with more than 1,000 districts serving more than 6 million children.
The state has issued guidance for how schools may safely reopen, but hasn't made a final recommendation on masks in schools.
The state has provided schools with about 90 million surgical masks, 384,000 N95 respirators and about 1.4 million face shields, along with other supplies, since the start of the pandemic, according to data Ferguson provided.
The state Department of General Services has purchased 18.4 million child-sized masks from four suppliers since the start of June, according to state procurement data.

2020.07.14 17:01 cilantro_samosa [OC] How much money are VanVleet, Gallinari and Montrezl gonna get this offseason? Attempting to predict free agent contracts this offseason using machine learning

After attempting to predict the MIP using machine learning, I switched my focus to trying to predict this offseason's free agent contracts. I hope y'all enjoy! (There's a TL;DR at the bottom)

Intro

Day 1 of NBA free agency is by far the biggest day of the offseason for the league. It was a doozy last season, with seismic shifts in the league's power structure. Arguably 2 of the top 5 players (when healthy) in the league, as well as an additional 3 within the top 25, changed teams.
This year's class? Not as highly regarded as last year. Anthony Davis is the crown jewel, while Brandon Ingram is the best restricted free agent available. The hype of this class was further deflated when players like Kyle Lowry and Draymond Green signed extensions with their current teams.
What I wanted to do was predict what contracts this year's free agent class might get based off previous offseasons. Stars generally get star-type money, but in tiers below, contracts of comparable players usually come up in discussing contract value.

Dataset

Preprocessing the Data

I started off with contract year stats, because there's anecdotal evidence that players exert more effort in their contract year. I initially wanted to use totals to bake in availability/body fragility, but the shortened season would cause the model to declare all players to be fragile and underestimate their contract. Stats other than games played, games started, and the advanced stats (OWS, DWS and VORP) were converted to per game. Percentages were left alone. Games played, games started, and the advanced stats were scaled to have a normal distribution (mean of 0 and standard deviation of 1).
In addition to using contract year stats, I summed the past two years and the contract year. Why did I settled on 3 years?
Another reason I settled on 3 years is that I can keep the same model for restricted free agents:
I performed the same processing on the three-year totals, using the three-year game total as the denominator for converting to per game. I had to calculate the three-year percentages, and also re-engineered the win shares per 48 minutes metric.

Relationship between win shares as first year salary as % of cap
Distribution of contract length by offseason

Dealing w/Target Correlation

As mentioned, the target variables are correlated with a Pearson correlation coefficient of 0.77. My method to combat this:
So I will have a model that predicts years first and salary second, as well as a model that predicts salary first and years second. I know it's not the greatest method (correlation does not imply causation!), and I'm open to hear alternative ways y'all would have gone about it!
One potential problem is compounding errors. If there's an incorrect year prediction, it might lead to an incorrect salary prediction and vice versa.

Algorithms to Train

A very simple example:
Player PPG RPG Contract
A 25 7 4 yrs, $90 million
B 24 8 ?
C 6 0.3 1 yr, $2 million
D 5 0.5 ?
With a 1 nearest neighbour model, you can clearly see that B is most similar to A, and D is most similar to C. Therefore, B's predicted contract is 4 years and $90 million, and D's predicted contract is 1 year and $2 million.

Testing the Models

Years First, Salary Second

years performance metrics
To alleviate this, I propose that if a player is predicted by ANY model to be a 5 year player, their contract year prediction is 5. Else, use a median of Rborist, ranger and SVM.
Why am I including SVM? Well, it has the best performance among the other models. I’m assuming that the random forest models will generally agree with each other. In the off chance they don’t, I’ll rely on the SVM to break the tie.

Evaluating the Models

Here's a google sheet of all predictions separated by whether a player had a player option or not!

Selected Player Option Decisions

I was unsure how to deal with club options, but players who decline player options become unrestricted free agents.
player Y1S2 Cap % yrs_Y1S2 total_Y1S2 S1Y2 Cap % yrs_S1Y2 total_S1Y2 2021 Option
Gordon Hayward 0.1788988921 3 64.86 0.1812429743 3 65.71 34.19
Andre Drummond 0.2221571423 3 80.54 0.2000980177 4 99.18 28.75
Anthony Davis 0.3014811978 5 191.58 0.2868035625 3 103.98 28.75
Otto Porter 0.08297334043 2 19.56 0.07925015245 2 18.68 28.49
DeMar DeRozan 0.2781873551 3 100.85 0.2657556943 3 96.35 27.74
Nicolas Batum 0.01857416549 1 2.14 0.02604507845 1 3 27.13
Evan Fournier 0.213951204 4 106.05 0.1969257167 4 97.61 17
James Johnson 0.02424448669 1 2.79 0.03168259373 1 3.64 15.83
Jerami Grant 0.132122261 3 47.9 0.1139293428 3 41.3 9.35
Stanley Johnson 0.01658695123 1 1.91 0 0 0 3.8
While some might be surprised at the DeRozan and Drummond projections, we have to note that the model doesn't take into account intangibles like playing reputation, team fit, or willingness to take a reduced salary to be on a championship contender.
If Anthony Davis re-signs with the Lakers, he is eligible for eight percent raises rather than five. That would bring the Y1S2 total to $202 million, which is exactly what he is eligible for. In terms of the three year projection, Davis could sign that shorter contract with the last year being an option in order to be eligible for the 35% max contract after 10 years of service (but the model wouldn't know that).
Jerami Grant and surprisingly (to me at least) Evan Fournier look like players set to cash in after declining their option. Players like Nicolas Batum, James Johnson, Otto Porter and Stanley Johnson (who's predicted to be out of the league by the S1Y2 model) would be wise to accept their option.

Selected Free Agents

player Y1S2 Cap % yrs_Y1S2 total_Y1S2 S1Y2 Cap % yrs_S1Y2 total_S1Y2
Brandon Ingram 0.2548324081 4 126.31 0.2465662829 4 122.21
Danilo Gallinari 0.2173187706 3 78.79 0.2149018106 3 77.91
Fred VanVleet 0.1961214299 4 97.21 0.1888455092 4 93.6
Montrezl Harrell 0.19201499 3 69.61 0.1782262995 4 88.34
Hassan Whiteside 0.1941521099 3 70.39 0.1723290935 3 62.48
Assuming Brandon Ingram (a first-time All-Star this season) doesn't make one of the three All-NBA teams, his first year contract salary is capped at 25%, which is right in line with predictions. However, I (among many others) expect Ingram to get the full five year extension.
The Heat wanted to acquire Danilo Gallinari from the Thunder this trade deadline, but ultimately were unable to broker a deal. Gallinari's career has been marred by injuries, but he has played over 80% of games the past two seasons. He's averaging 19 points per game this year, on 44% field goal shooting and 40% three-point shooting.
After his breakout in last year's Eastern Conference Finals and NBA Finals, Fred VanVleet has blossomed again in a starting role this season. Even so, Masai Ujiri and Bobby Webster might balk at paying him $24-25 million per year.
Montrezl Harrell and Hassan Whiteside are the first cases of dissension between the two models. The S1Y2 model projects Harrell to get 4 years, while the Y1S2 model only projects three. For Whiteside, the difference is almost 8 million dollars less in salary under S1Y2.
player Y1S2 Cap % yrs_Y1S2 total_Y1S2 S1Y2 Cap % yrs_S1Y2 total_S1Y2
Marcus Morris 0.1675722624 3 60.75 0.1587575186 3 57.56

Bogdan Bogdanović 0.1284454435 3 46.57 0.1216267861 3 44.09
Jordan Clarkson 0.1357167335 3 49.2 0.1062462145 3 38.52
Marcus Morris reneged on a verbal 2-year, $20 million contract with the Spurs last offseason to sign a 1-year, $20 million deal with the Knicks. He was the focal point of the Knicks offense and a hot commodity at the trade deadline, ultimately ending up with the championship-contending Clippers.
In February, Zach Lowe on his Lowe Post podcast thought that Joe Harris had a chance to double his current salary of $8 million. The models are even more optimistic, projecting his first year salary as over $17 million.
Bogdan Bogdanovic has been mentioned as the second-best RFA in the class. He might be squeezed out of Sacramento, considering the recent contracts to Buddy Hield and Harrison Barnes as well as upcoming contracts to De'Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley III.
Jordan Clarkson has the largest discrepancy in salary ($11 million) between the two models.

Derrick Favors 0.09816080257 2 23.14 0.1064310171 3 38.59
Davis Bertans has shot the lights out this season, earning himself a raise over his current salary of $7 million.
Christian Wood has flashed star-like potential since being inserted into the starting lineup in place of the departed Andre Drummond. But the key here is 12 games started. Wood played limited minutes in the first four months of the season. His contract situation, as well as that of Malik Beasley (who flourished after being traded to Minnesota mid-season), are intriguing to say the least.

2020.06.30 15:02 autotldr ‘Our Luck May Have Run Out’: California’s Case Count Explodes

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 87%. (I'm a bot)
Over the past week California's case count has exploded, surpassing 200,000 known infections, and forcing Mr. Newsom to roll back the state's reopening in some counties.
Latinos, who make up a large swath of the state's essential work force, have also recently seen consistently high case counts.
In a state with 40 million people, outbreaks have been heterogeneous: San Quentin State Prison on the San Francisco Bay, food-processing plants in the Central Valley, nursing homes, dense urban neighborhoods filled with essential workers and family gatherings in remote rural communities have all accounted for clusters of cases.
State Senator Richard Pan, a Sacramento physician who led the state's push to tighten immunization requirements, said that the state might have flattened its curve at first, but that it never bent it down toward zero.
Cellphone data showed that Californians moved around less than people in other states, and infection rates stabilized at a plateau well below the levels experts had projected, making military field hospitals and sports arenas and auditoriums - all mobilized in case of a shortage of beds - unnecessary.
Diana Dooley, a former state secretary of Health and Human Services who dealt with the Ebola and Zika pandemics during her tenure, said she had watched "With great empathy" as the crisis gripped California.

2020.06.05 08:33 CatSupernova The Official r/Mitski Black Lives Matter Resource Masterpost!

Hello, losing dogs! Tonight, I wanted to use this platform to spread resources and information pertaining to the ongoing protests against police brutality. While we are a mere fan sub, Black Lives Matter is not up for debate here or anywhere else, and I want to make sure that everyone here is informed and, if they’re headed to protests, staying safe. The Mitski fandom is diverse and varied in its composition, and it is in all of our best interest to support each other and fight for equality. As such, this post will serve as a kind of master list of resources that you can use to educate yourself, take action, and keep protected against the violence police have been inflicting at protests. Y’all matter to me, and I want to make sure that you don’t get hurt. Without further ado, I present this list:
Masterdocs
Petitions To Sign
Trigger warning: these petitions discuss very violent and upsetting cases. You don’t have to read through each one - it helps to inform yourself, but don’t overload yourself. Your mental health matters. DO NOT DONATE to change.org when it asks you to - your money is going to change.org, NOT the cause you signed about.
Calling, Texting, and Emailing
Donate!
Note: these are important organizations even while protests aren’t going on, and they could use your continued support.
Social Media
Protest Safety
So you’re going to a physical protest. That’s an amazing step, good on you! Remember, no matter how peaceful your local protest is, there is a real risk of facing arrest or brutality. If you’re going out, remember the following things:
Educate Yourself
Black Musicians
Since we are a music sub, I thought I’d share some of my favorite underappreciated Black bands and artists: Kilo Kish, MorMor, Kodie Shane, The Txlips Band, Shea Diamond, Pleasure Venom, Tobi Lou, Nyota Parker, Thundercat, Davia Spain, Tierra Whack, Laura Mvula, and Big Joanie. (Speedy Ortiz and Barrie also each have a Black member, but are mostly white.) Please recommend some more down in the comments, and support them by downloading and streaming their works!
Of course, this list is not exhaustive, and if you have any more resources you want me to add to the post, just comment them and I’ll add them on! I hope everyone’s staying safe and being good to each other. I love all of you and I want to create the most supportive environment I can. Remember, if you’re experiencing harassment on the sub, you can always reach out to u/TotallyNeurotypical or myself, and we will shut that down ASAP. Wishing you all the best, let’s push for change together!

2020.05.15 01:56 TimesJay A (Not Very Quick) Guide to Azur Lane Ship-girls in the Kaiserreich Universe

On a post from a few days ago of artwork imagining Queen Elizabeth as a Siren (source for the original picture; the specific post I’m talking about was ultimately removed for unrelated reasons), I talked with u/Alphaeon_28 and eventually u/Neither-Monk on the ship-girls currently in Azur Lane and their alternate history selves in the Kaiserreich universe. Kaiserreich is an alternate history universe in which Germany won World War I, based in the game series Hearts of Iron (specifically a community-made mod for the game, as the game itself is based on our timeline’s World War II). The discussion itself stemmed from another post about the fate of the Royal Navy when a lore-based revolution occurred in Great Britain.
In this post, I aim to archive every ship relevant to Azur Lane that exists in the Kaiserreich universe (or at least the names of every one I could possibly find; it is next to impossible to figure out anyone that’s been renamed) and their situation in 1936 (except the Eagle Union ships, which will be sorted by which faction of the 2nd American Civil War they side with in 1937), providing details about what brought them into their current forms and any changes that have been made to them. This post will be as accurate as I can get according to data collected from a playthrough of Kaiserreich on May 14th, 2020 and, well, Wikipedia. Of course, Kaiserreich decided to have an update just a few days ago that completely revamped the navies and forced me to redo most of the information I’d already collected but I assure you, I am 100% sane ~~\eye twitch*~~*
I don’t think this counts as fanfiction. This is simply an attempt at documenting information based on sources from the Kaiserreich lore and in-game information, stating the differences with our timeline rather than writing stories about their actions. Of course, anyone who wants to write Kaiserreich fanfic (in their own posts) is welcome. I have no agency over that; it’s not like I am part of the Kaiserreich dev team. Additionally, while political ideologies will be mentioned, they are simply for the sake of contextualizing the timeline and which sides the ships take; I do not wish to bring alternate history politics into a subreddit about anthropomorphic warships.
Note that these ship classifications are not strictly what they say in-game; Kaiserreich uses a weird assortment of ship types compared to the base version of HOI4 and also decided that all WW1 battleships are actually battlecruisers. Dreadnoughts are basically super battleships and there are at least four different types of cruisers. Either way, it’s clear that the naval system is meant to not be overly complex so things like ship profile changes can be ignored since many ships share ingame profile/design icons.
-----
Eagle Union (United States)
I’ll start with the United States because its situation is much more convoluted compared to the rest. The United States opted not to join the Weltkrieg (German for the Great War or World War I) due to Germany falling back on their submarine doctrine and thus suffered when German dominance of the European economy and politics took influence over world trade. When Britain suffered Syndicalist (think Communist but instead of a dictatorship, power comes from the trade unions) uprisings and eventually a full-scale revolution, the American economy suffered dearly and all but collapsed, leading to the Great Depression in 1925, four years earlier than our timeline. As such, most major shipbuilding projects ceased and the USN fell beyond other powers that were modernizing.
As of 1936, the Hoover administration’s failure to solve the economic crisis has led to the rise of extremist factions beginning to vie for control of US politics in the form of the Socialist Party of America and the America First Party. Both parties make promises to end the decade of suffering for the common man but are both incompatible with each other and the moderate parties that have dominated the United States since its inception. The world watches as tensions begin to boil over during the 1936 election, as the US descends into what might be a second bloody civil war…

United States Federal Government
Those who stay loyal to the stars and stripes, the government may align with most moderate factions from the surviving Entente to the German Reichspackt. Due to the many ways the civil war can play out, the Feds may retain control of anything from most of the contiguous United States to only the Rocky Mountains/Great Plains and a thin line of states reaching to the capital in Washington D.C. (though if D.C. falls and the Federal Government doesn’t collapse immediately, the capital moves to Denver), with only Baltimore and Norfolk to base their fleets. If an extremist leader takes power in the 1936 election or a moderate candidate fails to take appropriate measures, Douglas MacArthur will coup the government and establish a military junta to see the United States throughout the 2nd American Civil War. Otherwise, the elected moderate president (there are a few choices) will oversee the war effort.
*Note: If any faction doesn’t rise up, its associated ships will most likely remain loyal to the Federal Government.
USS Massachusetts (Massachusetts-Class Carrier) – A converted dreadnought hull, Massachusetts is… kinda hard to visually describe the profile of… uh, think Akagi but with two funnels behind the bridge and the bridge has a large mast with a crow’s nest on top of it.
USS North Carolina (South Carolina-Class Dreadnought) – North Carolina takes the form of a super battleship whose profile kinda more resembles HMS Hood but with standard American birdcage masts.
USS Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania-Class Battleship) – Seemingly vanishes at the start of the civil war; possibly scuttled.
USS Arizona (Pennsylvania-Class Battleship) – Seemingly vanishes at the start of the civil war; possibly scuttled.
USS Tennessee (Tennessee-Class Battleship)
USS Colorado (Colorado-Class Battleship)
USS West Virginia (Colorado-Class Battleship)
USS Houston (Northampton-Class Cruiser)
USS Seattle (Pittsburgh-Class Armored Cruiser) – Looks like an old pre-WW1 armored cruiser. Seemingly vanishes at the start of the civil war; possibly scuttled.
USS San Diego (Pittsburgh-Class Armored Cruiser) – Looks like an old pre-WW1 armored cruiser. Seemingly vanishes at the start of the civil war; possibly scuttled.
USS Concord (Omaha-Class Cruiser)
USS Denver (Denver-Class Cruiser) – The Denver-class looks the same as the Omaha-class.
USS Cassin (Mahan-Class Destroyer)
USS Downes (Mahan-Class Destroyer)
USS McCall (Porter-/Somers-Class Destroyer) – Under construction at the 1936 start date.

Combined Syndicates of America
The Syndicalist faction aligned with the Third Internationale (Syndicalist France, Britain and Northern Italy). Based in Chicago, the faction spans the Rust Belt states of the Midwest and Central Atlantic States, having Philadelphia (and possibly New York City) as its main naval base. The faction is headed by socialist leader Jack Reed.
And yes, the Northern faction is called the CSA.
CNS California (Tennessee-Class Battleship)
CNS Chicago (Northampton-Class Cruiser)
CNS St. Louis (St. Louis-Class Cruiser) – The St. Louis-class looks the same as the Omaha-class. Also, the game calls her USS Saint Louis but let’s just ignore that…

American Union State
The authoritarian faction preferring isolationism. Banded from many completely different political groupings, they control most of the south from the Carolinas to Texas. Major naval bases include the capital of New Orleans, Houston, Miami, Biloxi and Mobile. The loose coalition is headed by Louisiana governor Huey Long.
And yes, the Southern faction is called the Union.
USS Ranger (Ranger-Class Carrier) – Looking more like our timeline’s Lexington, Ranger is a converted battlecruiser hull likely having been originally designed as a Lexington-class battlecruiser. *Also wanted to mention for Neither-Monk, USS Constellation exists as Ranger’s younger sister; basically the Saratoga to Lexington in this universe. Constellation remained loyal to the Federal Government.
USS Maryland (Colorado-Class Battleship)
USS Washington (Colorado-Class Battleship) – An incomplete hull (BB-47) in our timeline, Washington exists as the completed Colorado-class battleship.
USS Birmingham (Chester-Class Cruiser) – The Chester-class looks the same as the Omaha-class.
USS Cleveland (Denver-Class Crusier) – The Denver-class looks the same as the Omaha-class.
USS Northampton (Northampton-Class Cruiser)
USS Richmond (Omaha-Class Crusier)
USS Memphis (Omaha-Class Cruiser)
USS Gridley (Caldwell-/Clemson-/Wickes-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
USS Kimberly (Caldwell-/Clemson-/Wickes-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.

Pacific States of America
Breaking away from the federal government if MacArthur makes his coup, this faction wishes to stay true to the spirit of democracy, claiming to be the legitimate successor to the US government (well, everyone’s doing that but at least they’re actually democratic). Comprising the Pacific States and sometimes spanning into the Rocky Mountains, this faction rules from Sacramento and holds all West Coast naval bases (Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Seattle), having taken most of the West Coast’s fleets in the fracturing of the nation. Their leader is initially Governor Frank Merriam but there are a few candidates for the 1937 interim president.
USS Langley (Langley-Class Experimental Carrier) – Looks the same as Langley in her usual carrier form but with a small bridge. Changes appearance upon swearing loyalty to the PSA for some reason.
USS Nevada (Nevada-Class Battleship)
USS Oklahoma (Nevada-Class Battleship)
USS Lexington (Lexington-Class Battlecruiser) – Lady Lex was completed in her battlecruiser form.
USS Saratoga (Lexington-Class Battlecruiser) – Sara was completed in her battlecruiser form.
USS Pensacola (Pensacola-Class Cruiser)
USS Salt Lake City (Pensacola-Class Cruiser)
USS Omaha (Omaha-Class Crusier)
USS Raleigh (Omaha-Class Crusier)
USS Marblehead (Omaha-Class Cruiser)
USS Craven (Caldwell-/Clemson-/Wickes-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
USS Maury (Caldwell-/Clemson-/Wickes-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
USS Radford (Caldwell-/Clemson-/Wickes-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.

New England
When the Civil War breaks out, New England is dangerously exposed to a Syndicate offensive. Canada, the leader of the Entente and refuge of British royalist exiles, has the choice to intervene and occupy the region, saving the people from the Syndicates but risking altercations with the United States Federal Government down the road. Led by Joseph William Martin Jr., the nation established is aligned with the Entente and controls the New England region (as well as Upstate New York, usually), with its capital, Boston, also being its main naval base while also possessing Providence.
NES Dewey (Farragut-Class Destroyer)
NES Aylwin (Farragut-Class Destroyer)
-----
Royal Navy (Britain)
After a crushing defeat at the Second Naval Battle of Jutland, Germany broke the Royal Navy’s blockade and, after a poorly calculated assault by the Entente, managed to eventually occupy France. The United Kingdom was eventually forced to sign the ‘Peace with Honour’, ending the Weltkrieg and handing victory to the German Empire. After years of hardship in the UK, a general strike quickly broke out into a full-scale Syndicalist revolution, causing the Royalist faction to flee. The Republican faction established the Union of Britain on the island of Great Britain, fracturing the Commonwealth in the process. Because of the split of the ideologies, the sailors of the navy had to make a choice: support the revolution or set sail for loyal shores.
Now, the two sides view each other with disdain, both claiming to be the true British government. It’s been about a decade and while the Royalists plan their return home, the Congress of Trade Unions in London prepares for the forthcoming years, trying to find their place in the Third Internationale. Will the revolution continue or will the birthright be reclaimed?
The following ships were lost before the 1936 start date according to lore.
-HMS Renown (Renown-Class Battlecruiser) – Sunk at the second naval battle of Jutland. Apparently, most of the British battlecruisers were sunk in this action. Nobody seems sure how.
-HMS Repulse (Renown-Class Battlecruiser) – Sunk at Jutland 2.
-HMS Glorious (Courageous-Class Battlecruiser) – Sunk at Jutland 2 in her battlecruiser form.
-HMS Rodney (Admiral-Class Battlecruiser) – Hood’s little sister, sunk at Jutland 2.
-HMS King George V (King George V-Class) – The WW1 warship. Sunk by HMS Queen Elizabeth after having opened fire on a crowd of protestors during the revolution.

Commonwealth of Canada
Leader of the Entente and the remains of the British Commonwealth, the British Crown finds itself as exiles in Canada and trying to hold everyone together. While most of the Weltkrieg and post-Weltkrieg ships fled during the revolution, the bulk of shipbuilding industries could not be brought across the Atlantic and had to be rebuilt from scratch. With the death of King George V, Edward VIII takes the throne and with it, the responsibility of directing the exiles, moderates, monarchists and Canadians from Ottawa to their true objective: retaking the British Isles and crushing the revolution.
HMCS Hermes (Hermes-Class Experimental Carrier) – Hermes takes on the appearance of HMS Argus, as in an early carrier with no bridge.
HMCS Victorious (Magnificent-Class Dreadnought) – Victorious’s profile looks like the N3-class battleship design (think Nelson-class but with the third main battery turret and the bridge swapping locations. And possibly 18-inch guns).
HMCS Rodney (Rodney-Class Battleship) – Rodney looks like a typical WW1 British battleship (possibly like the Revenge-class). A different ship from the previously-mentioned Admiral-class battlecruiser.
HMCS Nelson (Nelson-Class Battleship) – Nelson looks near-identical in profile to Rodney; not 100% sure why they ended up being separate classes.
HMCS Warspite (Queen Elizabeth-Class Battleship)
HMCS Centaur (C-Class Cruiser) – The WW1-era cruiser.
HMCS Curlew (C-Class Cruiser)
HMCS Acasta (Acasta-Class Destroyer) – The WW1-era destroyer.
HMCS Ardent (Acasta-Class Destroyer) – The WW1-era destroyer.
HMCS Amazon (Acasta-Class Destroyer) – The WW1-era destroyer.
Additionally, other ships were spread throughout the Commonwealth.
HMAS Hood (Admiral-Class Battlecruiser) – Now serving in the Australasian (Australia + New Zealand) Navy.
HMAS Grenville (V/W-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer now serving in the Australasian Navy.
HMWIS Curacoa (C-Class Cruiser) – Now serving in the West Indies (Confederation of Entente-held islands in the Caribbean) Navy.
HMIS Delhi (Danae-Class Cruiser) – I suppose this counts? Achilles’s post-war name is a WW1-era cruiser now serving in the Dominion of India’s (the part of India that remained loyal to the Commonwealth; basically the Northwestern part of the British Raj, including Delhi and most of our timeline’s Pakistan) Navy.

Union of Britain
After the revolution, the syndicalist state was established. Retaining certain British traditions, the island no longer holds the world-spanning power it did only decades ago; it does, however, still have its strong naval tradition. Having guided the government for years, Chairman Philip Snowden plans to step down soon, leaving a power vacuum in his wake and factions scrambling for influence, especially the ambitious Maximist leader Oswald Mosley.
Along with its allies in the Commune of France and the Socialist Republic of Italy, London works with the Internationale to prep for war with both the German hegemony over Europe in the Reichspackt and the bitter exiles of the Entente. The fleet has been experimenting with carrier technology ever since an inspiring incident at the second naval battle of Jutland and currently has one of the largest carrier fleets in the world.
RNS Illustrious (Republic-Class Carrier) - Under construction at the 1936 start date. The Republic-class looks the same as the Illustrious-class.
RNS Formidable (Republic-Class Carrier) - Under construction at the 1936 start date. The Republic-class looks the same as the Illustrious-class.
RNS Victorious (Republic-Class Carrier) - Under construction at the 1936 start date. The Republic-class looks the same as the Illustrious-class.
RNS Naseby (Naseby-Class Dreadnought) – Formerly the Magnificent-class dreadnought HMS Illustrious, Naseby uses the same N3 design as HMCS Victorious.
RNS Neptune (Neptune-Class Battleship) – The WW1-era battleship.
RNS Pererloo (Queen Elizabeth-Class Battleship) – Formerly the lead ship of the Queen Elizabeth-class battleships, HMS Queen Elizabeth played an important role in the revolution in sinking the WW1 battleship King George V, siding with the Republicans and shedding her royal name.
RNS Southampton (Town-Class Cruiser) – The WW1-era cruiser.
RNS Bulldog (B-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
RNS Beagle (B-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
RNS Crescent (C-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
RNS Comet (C-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
RNS Cygnet (C-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
RNS Fortune (F-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
RNS Foxhound (F-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.

Ironblood (Germany)
With their victory in the Weltkrieg and intervention in the Russian Civil War, Berlin holds the dominant position in European affairs and world trade. The German Empire’s Reichspackt holds sway over land from the English Channel to the Caspian Sea. Patrolling colonial holdings in both Africa and Asia, the Imperial German Navy has grown from a rising naval power to a world-spanning force in its own right.
Of course, with such a powerful position comes complacency… the naval air arm is barely past the experimental phase by now. Germany’s old allies in Austria, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire have been busy with their own internal and external affairs, causing the Central Powers to go their separate ways. Meanwhile, the Entente licks their wounds, the Internationale plots its revenge and the Russian Republic, having had German intervention on the side of the Whites in the 1920s, shows signs of instability once more. The moderate government fears stagnation but the prestige and pride of their past victories have convinced them they are on the right path.
Well, at least the economy is doing alright… w-what do you mean the Berlin Stock Market just crashed?
SMS Roon (Maas-Class Carrier) – The class of small-looking carriers seems to have interesting ramps for assistance in aircraft takeoff. Now serving in the German East Asian (assortment of captured British/French colonies in Indochina, Malaysia and the Pacific excluding Fiji, southern New Guinea, Australia and New Zealand; administration based in Singapore) Navy.
SMS Deutschland (Deutschland-Class Dreadnought) – As one of the larger battleships of the Imperial German Navy, the lead ship of the Deutschland-class looks like an up-scaled version of her pocket battleship self but with a third main battery turret to the stern of the warship like our Leipzig-class.
SMS Friedrich der Grosse (Kaiser-Class Battleship) – The WW1-era battleship.
SMS Furst Bismarck (Mackensen-Class Battlecruiser) – Probably doesn’t count but hey, it has the name Bismarck, right? This battlecruiser was planned but never built in our timeline.
SMS Graf Spee (Mackensen-Class Battlecruiser) – This battlecruiser was planned but never built in our timeline. Now serving in the German East Asian Navy.
SMS Scharnhorst (Yorck-Class Battlecruiser) – This battlecruiser was planned but never built in our timeline.
SMS Gneisenau (Yorck-Class Battlecruiser) – This battlecruiser was planned but never built in our timeline.
SMS Prinz Eugen (Prinz Eugen-Class Armored Cruiser) – A modern-ish large cruiser that looks like a smaller version of their timeline’s Deutschland-class dreadnoughts. For perspective, think the size and caliber of guns of our timeline’s Deutschland-class and the turret layout of our timeline’s Leipzig-class. Now serving in the German East Asian Navy. *There is also a cruiser called SMS Prinz Eugen in the Austrian Navy but it based on an older Austrian ship. Austria also has two destroyers called SMS Mars and SMS Jupiter under construction, which doesn’t really count but is quite funny.
SMS Koln (Koln-Class Cruiser) – The WW1-era cruiser.
SMS Leipzig (Koln-Class Cruiser) – The WW1-era cruiser.
SMS Konigsberg (Konigsberg-Class Cruiser) - The WW1-era cruiser. Now serving in the German East Asian Navy.
SMS Karlsruhe (Konigsberg-Class Cruiser) – The WW1-era cruiser. Now serving in the German East Asian Navy.

Sakura Empire (Japan)
Aside from the occupation of the Transamur region of Russia during the Russian Civil War and collaboration with the Fengtian Government of Manchura, Japan has seen little change since the Weltkrieg. The economy stagnates and paranoia abounds of syndicalist plots to overthrow the emperor. Meanwhile, the military is filled with internal strife, the army and navy bickering now more than ever. Despite this, the emperor still rules from Tokyo and the Imperial Japanese Navy is one of the fiercest in the world.
The next few years may decide Japan’s fate, what with the warlords still fighting in China, the turmoil in America and the rising tensions in Europe. Will Japan stand as a shining beacon of democracy in the east? Or will the highest authorities work to bring the Empire of Japan into a new age of glory and conquest?

Iris Orthodoxy (France)
Following a second mutiny in the French army in the spring of 1919 after failures on the battlefield, a general strike sparked off a revolution. With a civil war akin to Russia breaking out, the new socialist-coalition government accepted a true with Germany, agreeing to pay hefty reparations and cede parts of the French border to German influence, mirroring the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. Ruling from Paris, the revolution took full control of continental France, forcing the old French Republic’s government to flee to Algiers. Just as the people split, so too did the sailors of the Marine Nationale.
Both forces bide their time, across the Mediterranean from one another. The Entente-aligned French Republic wishes to return home like the British exiles in Canada wish to while the Syndicalist Commune of France considers its options regarding its neighbors in Europe while still bitterly plotting revenge against the Reichspackt.

Commune of France
Though having lost control over the former French colonies to the Entente and ceding the Dunkerque coastline and the rest of Lorraine to the Reichspackt, continential France has focused inwards and on its fellow Syndicalist governments in the Internationale, which it leads. Sebastien Faure heads the country with the backing of the Travailleurs but the growing influence of other factions makes it likely he will be ousted in the coming elections. As the symbol of world revolution, the Commune of France has its work cut out for it.
With the Reichspackt showing cracks in its façade, the time has come to begin to confront German influence in Europe. Spain seems on the blade’s edge of a civil war, as does the United States. The Entente, of course, always persists in the back of everyone’s minds. Perhaps a Second Weltkrieg, terrible as such as a concept may be, is on the horizon. As such, France must prepare for it.
Gascogne (Internationale-Class Battleship) – An incomplete hull in our timeline, Gascogne exists as the completed Normandie-class battleship.
Jean Bart (Courbet-Class Battleship) – The WW1-era battleship.
Le Triomphant (Cassard-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.
Le Malin (Cassard-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer.

French Republic
The government of the French Third Republic, led by war hero Philippe Petain, has taken to its holdings in French West Africa and Corsica, though having lost Morocco to German influence. There is a direct path across the Mediterranean from North Africa to southern France and the French Navy will be the sword with which to cut across it. Still, the situation in North Africa is tenuous; the native population do not wish to continue living under a flag of imperial influence and the land itself is underdeveloped compared to the mainland. For now, working with the Entente is vital to any future victory. The question of the French Republic’s future is one of leadership.
Perhaps the distraction of a conflict between Germany and the French Commune can allow for a homecoming but that may hinge on co-operation with the nation that crushed France twice in the last several decades. Would they even truly be able to retake all of their homeland in a deal with Germany?

Sardegna Empire (Italy)
Following defeat against Austria-Hungary, the Austrians reformed the nation’s government into a loose confederation of states that they could more easily control. It did not last long; Italy broke out in rebellion with several sides fight the Austrians and eventually each other. When it was all said and done, five nations remained where Italy has once existed; the Austrian-backed Italian Federation based in Milan and Venice, the Internationale’s Socialist Republic of Italy ruling most of northern Italy from Turin, the Papal State around Rome, Two Sicilies based out of Naples that rules over southern Italy and Sicily, as well as the Italian Kingdom’s original Entente-aligned government based in Cagliari, ruling over the island nation of Sardinia-Piedmont (though with little more than claim over Piedmont).
With so many factions ruling over states all claiming legitimacy to the Italian peninsula, conflict is not a question of if, but when. The powder keg brews…
Italia (Italia-Class Battleship) – A WW1-era battleship. Aligned with the Socialist Republic of Italy.

North Union (Russian Republic)
The devastating Russian Civil War was won by the Whites, but not without enormous cost: the population has been rocked and most of the western territories, along with central Asia and Transamur in the east, have broken away. Japan has propped up a new government in Vladivostok claiming to be the true government of Russia but that is only one of many concerns; the red menace is not going quietly. The populace remains unsatisfied with the governance and little progress has been made on modernization since the Weltkrieg.
With the assassination of unpopular President Alexsandr Kerenskiy, who will take up the head of the new government in the confusion? The monarchists? The nationalists? The socialists? Any of the many democratic factions? Russia’s future is uncertain, but it will probably not be pretty.
Gangut (Gangut-Class Battleship) – Serving in the Russian Navy.
Groznyy (Boykiy-Class Destroyer) – A WW1-era destroyer that was captured from Vladivostok. Now serving in the Transamur Navy.
-----
Eastern Radiance (China)
The empire, long united, must divide. Long divided, must united. The warlord period continues with the Qing Dynasty still holding out in Beijing, the League of Eight Provinces in the South and numerous states in the western mountains and deserts. However, the League seems unstable, as years of German exploitation of the region has led to immerging pushback and splintering of power. The Japanese-backed Fengtian Government in Manchuria watches on, waiting for the right moment to act.
China’s history shows that a central power will someday arise but with so many cliques competing and the battlefield supplied by foreign backers, the process will certainly be neither short nor painless.
Pinghai (Pinghai-Class Cruiser) – A pre-WW1 armored cruiser. Serving with the Qing Navy.

COLUMBIAN REPUBLIC

Government Anti-Flood Task Force Announces Project to Dam San Francisco Bay

The proposed project has struck a chord with those wishing to protect the aesthetic beauty of the Golden Gate - but emergency management officials warn that the entirety of the Bay Area could be underwater in a matter of five years.

Associated Press Issued on: 17/08/2054 - 10:03 SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA
With the recent collapse of the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica and a projected one-metre sea level rise over the next year, it became increasingly apparent that this was going to pose a severe problem for the Columbian Republic. While other parts of the country will be affected by the floods, notably Los Angeles and Portland, this is not considered as urgent as the flooding affecting the San Francisco Bay.
While the flooding in the rest of the country can be managed relatively easily with relocations and small-scale flood walls, the projected one-metre sea level rise places millions of people and roughly $1 trillion worth of California's economic base underwater. Relocations to this extent and small-scale management tactics are not feasible, especially considering further projected rises over the next few years. As such, the Anti-Flood Task Force has made the recommendation to dam the San Francisco Bay.
A megaproject to this extent is nothing new and scientists have troves of data regarding the projected effects of such a project, including a scale model of the bay managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.
Scientists and civil engineers from across the Columbian Republic recently convened in San Francisco to formulate a plan, with the general overview being a set of two dams across the Golden Gate, with the Golden Gate Bridge being dismantled and parts of it replaced atop the dam upon its completion. The societal effects of blocking traffic across the Golden Gate for a period of several months are immense and have been met with severe pushback, but scientists have repeatedly warned that failure to act in a timely manner could spell disaster for the Bay Area economy.
Secondary dams will be constructed across the mouth of the San Pablo bay, and smaller flood walls will be constructed along the length of the San Joaquin River to prevent flooding in Sacramento. A series of locks along the Golden Gate dams will allow for marine traffic to enter and leave the bay, and "improved traffic capacity" across the tops of the dams upon their completion will be a marked improvement over that of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Estimates place the total cost of the project at $1.65 billion, with an estimated completion time of 8 months, with a massive cooperative effort across numerous government agencies and engineering firms.

2020.03.29 00:21 Ingeneric_Username Which teams have fewer fans than their namesake?

Note: This is based off of a post on nfl by u/TwentyThreeEightyOne around two years ago. Some comments mentioned a desire to do this study for NBA teams, but to my knowledge, none has been done. Due to boredom during the quarantine, I have decided to try this for myself.
The question I am asking is "Which teams have fewer fans than the population of said team's namesake?" For example, are there more actual timber wolves then there are Timberwolves fans? These are the questions that require answering.
I first need to find a number of NBA fans. Unfortunately, this is more difficult than it might sound, but a reasonable estimate is around 300,000,000. It is also reasonable to expect around 10% of this number to be fans of no specific team, so I will be using the number 270,000,000. To find the number of fans for each team, I will be taking the number of twitter followers multiplied by (total fans/total twitter followers of all NBA teams) which is (270,000,000/67,947,245), and rounding the result to the nearest fan. Below you can see a chart detailing this process.

Team Twitter followers Estimated fans
Atlanta Hawks 1,271,890 5,054,072
Boston Celtics 3,558,742 14,141,270
Brooklyn Nets 1,103,148 4,383,547
Charlotte Hornets 979,847 3,893,590
Chicago Bulls 4,142,502 16,460,940
Cleveland Cavaliers 3,274,866 13,013,240
Dallas Mavericks 1,724,426 6,852,302
Denver Nuggets 969,861 3,853,909
Detroit Pistons 949,573 3,773,291
Golden State Warriors 6,474,536 25,727,676
Houston Rockets 3,067,367 12,188,707
Indiana Pacers 1,262,193 5,055,540
Los Angeles Clippers 1,624,703 6,456,035
Los Angeles Lakers 8,813,342 35,021,322
Memphis Grizzlies 1,097,204 4,359,928
Miami Heat 4,728,961 18,791,335
Milwaukee Bucks 1,233,197 4,900,319

Portland Trail Blazers 1,296,512 5,151,912
Sacramento Kings 1,081,118 4,296,007
San Antonio Spurs 3,488,312 13,861,404
Toronto Raptors 2,180,343 8,663,966
Utah Jazz 992,626 3,944,369
Washington Wizards 1,055,170 4,192,898
Total 67,947,245 269,999,997
Atlanta Hawks: There are approximately 5,054,072 Hawks fans. There are over 200 different species of hawks, and a sum of the populations of just 4 of them (Red-tailed hawk, Broad-winged hawk, Cooper's hawk, and Swainson's hawk) is 5.28 million hawks. There are more hawks than Hawks fans.
Boston Celtics: There are approximately 14,141,270 Celtics fans. Celtics can be defined as relating to the Celts. The word Celt encompasses the Irish people, among others. There is around 80 million Irish people worldwide. There are more Celtics than Celtics fans.
Brooklyn Nets: There are approximately 4,383,547 Nets fans. An estimated 450 million people play basketball in the world. It is reasonable to expect at least one basketball hoop (with a net attached) per 102 players, considering how many people own a personal basketball hoop. There are likely more nets than Nets fans.
Charlotte Hornets: There are approximately 3,893,590 Hornets fans. It is difficult to find an accurate hornet population, but considering how widespread the 20 species of hornets are and the fact that their nests can hold around 700 of them, it is safe to assume there are more hornets than Hornets fans.
Chicago Bulls: There are approximately 16,460,940 Bulls fans. A bull is a male cow. There are around 1.4 billion cows in the world, and it is safe to assume that more than 1% of them are male. There are more bulls than Bulls fans.
Cleveland Cavaliers: There are approximately 13,013,240 Cavaliers fans. A Cavalier is a gentleman trained in arms and horsemanship. In today's world, that is not a common skill set. It is safe to assume that there are more Cavaliers fans than cavaliers.
Dallas Mavericks: There are approximately 6,852,302 Mavericks fans. A maverick is a wild cow that has not been branded or gathered. As these cows have not been branded or gathered, it is difficult to get an accurate count of them. Most sources agree that the number of wild cattle remaining is minimal, however, thus it is likely that there are more Mavericks fans than mavericks.
Denver Nuggets: There are approximately 3,853,909 Nuggets fans. The Nuggets were named after the gold and silver nuggets that were in high demand in the mid 19th century. It is impossible to know the true number of gold and silver nuggets in the world, but considering their natural occurring tendencies there are probably more nuggets than Nuggets fans.
Detroit Pistons: There are approximately 3,773,291 Pistons fans. A piston is an essential part of a car engine, with multiple in a single engine. There are over 1.4 billion cars on the road today. There are more pistons than Pistons fans.
Golden State Warriors: There are approximately 25,727,676 Warriors fans. A warrior is a brave or experienced soldier or fighter. There are currently 20.5 million people in the military worldwide, not all in fighting roles. While this is a crude estimate, it appears there are more Warriors fans than warriors.
Houston Rockets: There are approximately 12,188,707 Rockets fans. There have been 6,854 rockets launched from earth since the start of the space age. It is unlikely that 12 million more remain on Earth. There are more Rockets fans than rockets.
Indiana Pacers: There are approximately 5,055,540 Pacers fans. The Pacers were named after racing pacers in both auto and horse races. Since there is a maximum of one pace cahorse per race, it is almost certain that there are more Pacers fans than pacers.
Los Angeles Clippers: There are approximately 6,456,035 Clippers fans. The Clippers were named after the sailboats that passed through San Diego Bay. Around 28,206 sailboats were chartered this past year, and it is safe to assume that the total number of sailboats is lower than 6.5 million. There are probably more Clippers fans than clippers.
Los Angeles Lakers: There are approximately 35,021,322 Lakers fans. The Lakers, originally in Minnesota, were named after the many lakes there. Apparently there are 117 million lakes in the world. There are more lakes than Lakers fans.
Memphis Grizzlies: There are approximately 4,359,928 Grizzles fans. There are around 55,000 grizzly bears. There are more Grizzlies fans than grizzly bears.
Miami Heat: There are approximately 18,791,335 Heat fans. The flow of heat from Earth's interior to the surface is estimated at 47,000,000,000,000 watts. This does not account for the heat that is coming from the sun and other sources. If we have one fan equal to one watt, there is more heat than there are Heat fans.
Milwaukee Bucks: There are approximately 4,900,319 Bucks fans. A buck is a male deer. The US deer population is 33.5 million. Assuming at least 14% of deer are male, there are more bucks than Bucks fans.
Minnesota Timberwolves: There are approximately 3,999,405 Timberwolves fans. There are around 10,000 timber wolves worldwide. There are more Timberwolves fans than timber wolves.
New Orleans Pelicans: There are approximately 4,297,652 Pelicans fans. There are around 650,000 pelicans. There are more Pelicans fans than pelicans.
New York Knicks: There are approximately 8,642,142 Knicks fans. The Knicks are named after knickerbockers, a type of pants typically worn by immigrants from the Netherlands. The pants have been outdated for hundreds of years and are no longer worn regularly. There are more Knicks fans than knickerbockers.
Oklahoma City Thunder: There are approximately 11,108,234 Thunder fans. There are around 100 lightning strikes per second. If we assume that the average thunder sound lasts for 5 to 10 seconds, that brings us to 1,000 thunders at any given moment. There are more Thunder fans than thunder.
Orlando Magic: There are approximately 5,983,137 Magic fans. Magic, which is the use of means to have supernatural power over natural forces, doesn't really exist, thus there are more Magic fans than there is magic.
Philadelphia 76ers: There are approximately 7,522,739 76ers fans. The term 76ers is restricted to people alive in 1776. Those people are all dead. There are more 76ers fans than 76ers.
Phoenix Suns: There are approximately 4,449,109 Suns fans. The sun is the name of the star around which the Earth orbits. There is only one of those. There are more Suns fans than suns.
Portland Trail Blazers: There are approximately 5,151,912 Trail Blazers fans. The Trail Blazers were named after the Oregon Trail, which is estimated to have been used by around 400,000 people. There are more Trail Blazers fans than trail blazers.
Sacramento Kings: There are approximately 4,296,007 Kings fans. There are 26 monarchies in the world, not all ruled by someone with the title of king. There are definitely more Kings fans than kings.
San Antonio Spurs: There are approximately 13,861,404 Spurs fans. Spurs are an optional part of riding boots. Around 15 million people will ride a horse in the next 12 months. A good portion of those people will either share boots or not wear riding boots at all. More will wear boots without spurs, particularly beginners. While it is impossible to determine the true number of spurs in the world, it appears likely that there are more Spurs fans than spurs.
Toronto Raptors: There are approximately 8,663,966 Raptors fans. A raptor is a generic term for all birds of prey. This includes all the birds on this list, which together is far more than 8.7 million. There are more raptors than Raptors fans.
Utah Jazz: There are approximately 3,944,369 Jazz fans. Since jazz is a concept and not something quantitative, I will be counting the number of jazz musicians. This is not much easier, because there is no reliable way to measure the number of musicians. However, given the numbers in the study are far less than 4 million, and jazz musicians only make up a small portion of the population of musicians, there is evidence to suggest that there are more Jazz fans than jazz musicians.
Washington Wizards: There are approximately 4,192,898 Wizards fans. A wizard is someone who has magical powers. Since we have established that magic does not exist, it is reasonable to theorize that wizards do not exist either. There are more Wizards fans than wizards.
Teams that have less fans than the population of their namesake: Hawks, Celtics, Nets, Hornets, Bulls, Nuggets, Pistons, Lakers, Heat, Bucks, and the Raptors
What does this mean?: Nothing.
Edit: It has come to my attention that the Raptors were named after the velociraptor, meaning that there are more Raptors fans than raptors, since dinosaurs are unfortunately dead.

2020.02.17 07:00 autotldr California Police Have Been Illegally Sharing License Plate Reader Data A major audit found that California cops shared data on the movements of millions of drivers without having policies in place, disregarding state law.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 72%. (I'm a bot)
Some of California's largest police departments have been collecting millions of images of drivers' license plates and sharing them with entities around the country-without having necessary security policies in place, in violation of state law, according to a newly released state audit.
The audit, published Thursday, found that 230 police and sheriff's departments in the state currently use automated license plate readers, which can be fixed cameras or devices mounted on patrol cars.
Citing a case in Georgia in which a police officer took a bribe to look up a woman's license plate to determine if she was an undercover officer, the auditors also determined that many of the departments it examined were not ensuring that only authorized personnel had access to ALPR data, or auditing the database logs to make sure that authorized personnel were using the systems properly.
During testimony before the state legislature in August the LAPD lieutenant who oversees the department's license plate reader program stated, "We continue to ensure that we abide by both the laws that are in place," directly contradicting what the audit would ultimately find.
The three California departments were all sharing data with an entity listed as the Missouri Police Chiefs Association, which is a private advocacy group, not a law enforcement agency.
Sacramento, Fresno, and Marin were also sharing data with the Honolulu Police Department, which is separated from California by roughly 2,500 miles of ocean, raising questions about why Honolulu police need to know the every movement of California drivers.

Alright so basically I've been lurking on this sub since early March but I never actually had an account until just now. I figured that with the whole #LetYangSpeak thing happening and with his campaign finally starting to pick up steam that I should try to contribute here.
Anyways, here are some sources regarding various topics that I think may be interesting/useful. Yang uses a few of these sources as well to support his arguments. Also like I said I just made this account and I don't really know what I'm doing so if I make some kind of weird formatting mistake while making this post, let me know.
