Modified brain, my experience with bio nanobots, directed energy weapons government coverup world wide (west/nato)
Over the course of my experiences and research, I have come to believe that directed energy weapons (DEWs) harbor a sinister potential that often goes unnoticed. In this essay, I aim to shed light on the ethical concerns and health implications associated with these technologies, drawing from my personal encounters. Specifically, I will delve into the disturbing link between DEWs and genetically modified diseases, exposing the secret practices of governments conducting unethical experiments on their own populations. Additionally, I will share my observations on the potential impact of DEWs on the configuration of the brain's temporal lobe and the unsettling notion of bio nanobots invading our bodies. This account is based on my own experiences and reflections and should be regarded as a subjective perspective.
Section 1: The Unseen Peril: Genetically Modified Diseases
In my exploration of DEWs, I have encountered compelling evidence suggesting a connection between these weapons and the creation of genetically modified diseases. It is deeply troubling to realize that malicious actors could potentially harness the power of DEWs to engineer pathogens with specific genetic modifications, intending to wreak havoc on unsuspecting populations. The manipulation of these diseases, including heightened virulence and antibiotic resistance, poses a grave threat to public health and demands urgent attention.
Section 2: The Betrayal of Trust: Governmental Misuse
My investigations have led me down a rabbit hole of government malpractice, unveiling a disturbing reality. It is with a heavy heart that I reveal the hidden truths surrounding the misuse of DEWs by unscrupulous governments. These secretive powers exploit their citizens, employing DEWs to conduct unethical experiments without their knowledge or consent. The sheer betrayal of trust, as these governments subject their own people to the perils of genetically modified diseases, is nothing short of abhorrent. The violation of ethical principles and the disregard for human life mark a dark chapter in our history.
Section 3: Altered Minds: The Impact on the Temporal Lobe
Through my personal experiences, I have observed a disconcerting correlation between DEWs and changes in the configuration of the brain's temporal lobe. Exposure to these powerful energy beams seems to disturb the delicate balance within this region, altering neural connections and influencing cognitive functions. Although the precise consequences of such changes remain uncertain, I cannot ignore the apparent impact on behavior and mental well-being. These findings underscore the urgent need for scientific exploration into the long-term effects of DEW exposure on the human brain.
Section 4: The Invading Swarm: Bio Nanobots
In my quest for understanding, I have come across unsettling discussions about bio nanobots, microscopic robots designed to infiltrate the human body, the notion of these tiny invaders crawling inside us cannot be dismissed lightly. If such technology were to become a reality, the potential ramifications for human health would be unprecedented. The idea of bio nanobots working in tandem with DEWs and genetically modified diseases sends shivers down my spine, imagining the profound violation of our very bodies.
My personal journey and research have led me to a chilling realization: directed energy weapons harbor a dark side that must be acknowledged. The connection between DEWs and genetically modified diseases, the abuse of power by governments, the potential impact on the brain's temporal lobe, and the haunting concept of bio nanobots infiltrating our bodies paint a distressing picture of our world. It is crucial that we confront these issues, demand transparency, and hold those in power accountable. By sharing my experiences, I hope to inspire further investigation, responsible governance, and the collective will to ensure that the trajectory of technological advancement remains aligned with the well-being and dignity of humanity

2023.05.30 07:30 Background_Drawer_80 PC won’t post anymore after applying thermal paste

Yesterday my CPU temps were high while doing nothing (60c) so I decided to reapply my thermal paste (without removing the cpu from the socket) and when I finished up and turned my PC back on the dram light on my motherboard was on and there was no display but my fans were still spinning.
I’ve tried reseating my ram and only trying one stick in each slot but still nothing, reseated the CPU and that did nothing, unplugged my cpu cable and 24 pin cable and plugged them back in and still nothing. Tried taking my cmos battery out for 20 mins and also shorting the pins and still NOTHING.
My motherboard is an Asus ROG Strix B550-F Gaming, and my CPU is a Ryzen 5 5600x. I have 32 gigs of Corsair Vengeance LPX. Graphics card is a RX 6650XT. Power supply is a FSP Hydro G PRO 750W.
Please help I’m so confused and don’t know what to do.

Cardano Daily Discussion - May 30, 2023
Hello everyone,
Welcome to the Cardano Daily Discussion!
The standard sub rules apply here (see sidebar), with the exception that price discussion is allowed in this thread, though we encourage you to try not to make this the focus and talk about the project itself. Please ask questions, help others and be civil - be sure to get involved in Project Catalyst too!
If you're new, please make sure you're read through the newbies guide and share it with others (use the ?newbies comment command to reference it).

⚠️ Scam Warning ⚠️

Please read the Cybersecurity guidelines for Cardano Users.
There are ongoing giveaway scams on youtube and many scammers lurking in Cardano's social channels impersonating ambassadors/moderators/official staff contacting users via direct messages.
For example, searching 'cardano' on youtube and sorting by most recent upload date shows several giveaway scams running (all videos in screenshot are scams):

Ongoing 'giveaway' scams on Youtube
The youtube scams are automated; use stolen footage usually of Charles Hoskinson and are restreamed so to appear to be 'live'; appear to have many watchers (which are bots); use bought hacked channels and are edited to appear like official channels.
See this post for more examples of what they look like
Do not be fooled!

To be clear:
  • ⚠️ There is no such thing as a Cardano giveaway
  • ⚠️ Never share your seed phrase with ANYONE
  • ⚠️ Never send ADA to someone promising to send you more ADA back
  • ⚠️ You will never be contacted by ambassadors/moderators/staff
Please report scams on the Cardano Fraud Detection Bureau.

⚠️ Scam Warning ⚠️

Midnight Subreddit

In anticipation of Input Output's new data protection blockchain 'Midnight', I've managed to acquire Midnight through some negotiation and repurpose it for the Cardano Community (the sub was created for a card game back in 2011 but was mostly unused).
I decided to do this as I thought the project will eventually need a home on reddit and best to setup now before any scammers do. Obviously there's not much to post about on there right now as it's early days as the project is yet to be released, but if you'd like to be kept up to date on the project please feel free to join the new subreddit if the project interests you and I'll be sure to post updates as and when they become available.
Right now the sub is mostly a carbon copy of cardano, I've copied most of the automod and rules over, so certain aspects may seem a little incongruent atm, but I'll tailor and tweak the sub as we go. Feel free to send me or post any input if you want stuff to change.
Cheers all

2023.05.30 07:29 Able-Lecture-6053 The cats scream at night

My neighborhood has always had a extreme population of stray animals in it. While many of the dogs have been caught,the same can’t be said about the cats. While coming home at night, every house you look at has one or two pairs of glowing little eyes staring back in your direction. No matter how many cats we get out of the neighborhood, more just seem to keep coming. This has caused people to move out of the neighborhood, making the place seem vacant and barren. Hardly anyone batted an eye in wanting to buy the houses, which is why I was surprised a new neighbor moved in. As the moving trucks drove up to the driveway on the house next to me, I went to greet the person who was my soon to be neighbor. As I welcomed him into the neighborhood, he asked “Why is there so many cats in this neighborhood?”. I responded by telling him that’s how it’s always been and that I was surprised he hadn’t noticed before purchasing the house. He responded “This won’t do, but I have just the thing to get rid of these cats, would you like me to get rid of them?”. I was intrigued, so I asked “Could you do it?”. He replied “Of course I can,by the end of tonight you should see less and less cats in the neighborhood.” I was super curious, so I decided to say my goodbyes and walk back to my house. The rest of the day went by slowly, but as I was getting ready for bed I heard a cat scream. I usually hear them making noise, I’ve even heard a cry or two from cat fights, but never a scream. The cats scream echoed in my ear as it slowly faded away into nothingness. I wondered if this was what my neighbor was talking about, but decided to leave it and let it do its thing. That night, I woke up multiple times to the same noise. It was always a cat screaming, screaming in pain, screaming for help, only to get no response as its screams turned to cry’s then to silence. I woke up the next morning groggy from the awful sleep I got, but as I went outside I had noticed that there were no cats to be seen, and the ones that could be seen seemed to be hiding from something. I went to knock and knocked on my neighbors door. He opened up the door, and asked me if I had liked that he cleaned up the cat problem. I responded “Yes, but what were you using that caused such a reaction from the cats?”. While he replied “I can’t share my methods, but it’s something my grandfather had used for hunting back when deer had overpopulated his local ecosystem”. While still curious to see if I could get the answer out of him, I quickly left it at that as I had to get to work. I drove to work, got on with my day, and after my tiring 10 hour shift I immediately went home and crashed on my bed. I didn’t even bother to change out of my clothes, but instead just drifted off into a deep sleep. I was awoken about a hour later when I heard a familiar sound from the night before, the screaming from a cat. I tried to sleep through it, but then I heard a different sound from before. I shot up as I heard the barks from a dog, I heard growling, then the dog barked one last time till I fell completely silent. After that, I heard a few more cats than nothing more for the night. As I awoke the next morning, I was surprised to see my neighbor putting boxes into a moving van. “Leaving so soon?” I asked him. He turned to me, his face looking like all the blood drained from it. “I have no time to talk right now” he exclaimed as he walked to get more boxes. I followed him, grabbing a box myself. “Why move in for a couple of days just to move out after, was it because of the cats?” I said as I put a box into the van. “The cats are the least of this neighborhood’s problems,I suggest you get out as well.” He told me with a shakeup voice. He looked so pale like he was about to pass out, so I suggested to him to take a small break and sit down to recuperate, which he did. While sitting down, I asked him what got him all worked up. He then explained that he heard a dog last night, crying out in pain, and after hearing it started to pack. I laughed a bit, finding it ironic that the same guy that had no problem getting cat’s murdered drew the line when it came to a dog. The neighbor look at me furiously “Get off of my property , I will not sit here as you mock me.”. “You and this whole neighborhood don’t know what’s soon to come, and you’ll be sorry that you made a fool of me” exclaimed my neighbor as I walked back to my house. He then slammed the last box into the van, shut it closed, and sped off as fast as he could. I was confused by the whole encounter, and just decided to get dressed for work. After my 8 hour shift at the office, I went home to watch television and eat some hot pockets. I walked to my room, then I heard a crashing at my farthest window. I heard the noise of claws scraping on the floor and the low growl of a feral animal. I thought some sort of wolf broke into the house, so I went to my room, locked it, then climbed into my closet as I clutched a baseball bat I had in there. I heard something pounding it’s full body weight against my door as I heard it begin to crack. As the door finally gave in, I began to realize what had scared my neighbor so much. I clutched my bat as I began to realize it too, The dog that was killed isn’t what startled him, but instead what it made him realize. Whatever thing the neighbor released into the neighborhood. It was moving up the food chain.

2023.05.30 07:29 burlapbikini Transerferring non-Amazon files FROM Kindle

Hello all,
When I was in college, broke, a professor was kind enough to send requied texts to my Kindle email, the one that links attached files directly to the ereader. That was years ago. Now I've switched to a Kobo Sage, and I'm trying to transfer those books to it (using Calibre, etc.). Currently running into issues because it turns out my prof's files are not AZWs.
I'm looking to leave the Amazon ecosystem behind entirely, but these books (30 of them!) are incredibly dear to me. I have to hold onto them, but I don't want to carry around two e-readers every time I leave my apartment.
Has anyone found out the way to get these types of files off a Kindle and onto a PC/into Calibre? I've been using Amazon's "Manage content and devices" page to access my AZWs; should I be using Calibre and Kindle-for-PC v1.17, or something else?
Many many thanks.

2023.05.30 07:28 FewBend2604 Might’ve messed up my ankle

21f take 81mg aspirin, birth control and propranolol daily for anxiety.
Earlier today I was going down stairs and on the final step I did something wrong and twisted my ankle. As I was falling I heard a pretty loud pop, it could’ve been my ankle popping but it was REALLY loud. I was able to walk it off but as time has passed It hurts more to put pressure on it. (It’s been about 5 hours) I can still move it around in all directions with limited mobility and pain. Currently Minimal bruising almost can’t see it and also minimal swelling. I’m resting with an ice pack on my ankle now but based on my symptoms does this sound like I’m being dramatic, a sprain, tear, or like I possibly broke something? I’m wanting to make it through the night and see how it looks in the morning.

2023.05.30 07:28 edwinbarnesc GMERICA: Activists, Affiliates & The Return of Icahn - A Succession Plan To Launch TEDDY IPO (part 1)

GMERICA: Activists, Affiliates & The Return of Icahn - A Succession Plan To Launch TEDDY IPO (part 1)
This is part 2 and a continuation from this post (unable to link, see my post history for "GMERICA: SEC & BK Court Filings Reveal Carl Icahn As The Mystery Buyer & TEDDY IPO Coming") about Unitholders or should I say Unithodlers?
Disclaimer: I am not a financial advisor and this is not financial advice.

Preface: GMERICA Bull Thesis

What are units?
In part 1 (see post hx GMERICA: TEDDY IPO), I discovered how a unit may contain multiple securities combining GME and IEP and that the transaction is currently being handled by Jefferies which links all 3 companies: GME, IEP, BBBY = GMERICA.
Furthermore, I believe these units will be used in the $BBBYQ chapter 11 bankruptcy restructuring for a leveraged buyout (LBO) deal involving cash and a [unit] share swap to either (1) purchase BBBY, or (2) just the subsidiary asset buybuyBABY, the crown jewel -- towards the end of this post, I will clarify what will most likely happen as a result.
Upon completion of the LBO, a carve-out of buybuyBABY will then initiate a SPAC IPO to launch TEDDY into a new public company. This is the end goal.
According to the SEC: Warrants. A SPAC IPO is often structured to offer investors a unit of securities consisting of (1) shares of common stock and (2) warrants.
Common stock and warrants are currently involved in the buyout of Bed, Bath, and Beyond and has been mentioned in the ch11 court docs. Basically, the SPAC IPO is a vehicle that will deliver the units to the buyer of BBBY.
This carve-out of buybuyBABY from BBBY will force shorts to close.
How? Shorts will be forced to deliver units (shares of $GME x $IEP x $BBBYQ) and new TEDDY shares to the shareholders at all 3 parent companies: Bed, Bath, & Beyond, GameStop, and Icahn Enterprises LP.
Moving forward, I will now refer to these future shareholders as Unithodlers or simply GMERICANs, who will become owners in the new company TEDDY in a post-SPAC IPO.
This is my bull thesis for GMERICA.
Now for the endgame play.

The King's Empire Under Siege

Carl Icahn's $IEP empire is directly under attack by shorts, MSM, and SEC investigation.
FYI- IEP is a holding company that directly controls and owns companies in 7 industries with 14 board members in other public companies.
It is a conglomerate and makes me think of the Iron Bank from the Free City of Braavos in Game of Thrones. And Icahn will have its due.
The attacks on IEP are playing out exactly as Dr. Patrick Byrne once said (credit EnvironmentalPlan870):

OSTK CEO confirms everything that is currently happening to IEP

But why are they attacking?
See part 1 (see post hx GMERICA: TEDDY IPO) and the section under "A Master Fund for Handling Units", then this next part will make sense.

The HindenNothingBurger & its Blitzkrieg Report of Destruction

A shorting-selling hedge fund named Hindenburg Research released a self-serving report on IEP claiming that the company is operating a pyramid scheme which has caused the stock price to collapse -- to All-Time 5 year lows.

IEP stock collapsed by -70% to 5 year lows
On the outset, it looks like a classic short and distort campaign but the motives are actually much more nefarious.
First, IEP is majority owned by Carl Icahn where he holds a staggering 84% stake in the company which would make one wonder - where are shorts getting shares if Icahn owns most of it?
The simplest answer: Illegal naked shorting, or selling shares in a company you don't own. It's called stealing.
Second, the real reason why shorts have laid siege to Carl Icahn's empire is out of desperation and a feeble attempt to dethrone the King. Here, this will explain, from IEP's 10Q filing:

From IEP 10Q filing, pg 48 - Depository Units & Risk Factors

TLDR; 10Q Summary
  • Carl Icahn controls the publicly traded company $IEP LP (limited partners) through a private company called IEP GP (general partner, or the controlling manager of the LP)
  • Carl has pledged 202M depository units from $IEP to get a loan worth up to $4.17B (for LBO)
  • $IEP is aware of the shorts attack on the company and have released this 'Risk Factor' notice
  • Shorts are trying to force a Margin Call on Carl's position on the loan
  • Shorts are attempting to lower the Unit share price of $IEP in hopes of triggering a Forced Liquidation and removing Carl, the controlling person as GP of $IEP
The siege began on May 2, 2023, at the same time Hindenburg's Short Report was released:

The Blitzkreig Short Report masking the Swap that has been Activated

And of course, now it looks like a swap has been setup to anchor the $BBBYQ rocket while suppressing $IEP stock price. Credit for technical chart to Charoenlai:

Shorts setup a swap on $IEP & $BBYQ, kinda like the meme stock basket of $GME vs. the world to prevent these rocket(s) from flying
Basically, Icahn knows. Pulte knows. And Cohen knows:

Ryan Cohen likes Pulte's tweet on the Shorts Strike Back (simulation confirmed)
In my first post that seeded GMERICA (see my post history for GMERICA: Whale-Financed), I wrote about Carl Icahn the OG Activist Ape aka MSM-dubbed Corporate Raider:

Icahn has a track record of success and here's what he said in a letter to shareholders of his company on June 6, 2022:
"My activist engagements have generally produced exceptional results. To elaborate, our activist activities have created close to $1 Trillion in value for all shareholders in the aggregate who’ve held or purchased stock when we did and sold stock when we did. I believe our record unquestionably proves that holding CEOs and boards accountable to shareholders manifests great results."
This man fucks and shorts are about feel it:

Carl Icahn hits back: \"He's planning something that these guys will never forget.\" -oops, MOASS
But will it be the Bull King that raids these shorts or will it be someone else?

Enter: The Prince of 69D Chess

Much focus has been on Carl Icahn but few know about his son, Brett Icahn:

The father, master strategist and the protégé son playing Chess
The image above is from an HBO documentary & movie called: The Restless Billionaire. The movie details the life of activist investor Carl Icahn and the story behind all the companies that he acquired. It truly is inspiring and I highly recommend watching.
In one scene, Carl says the following:
"I'll say this about Brett, he's much more low-key than I am. But he's one of the most obsessive characters, and he'll work very hard at something, extremely hard, especially if it means beating me at something."
The movie also reveals how Brett and Carl used to routinely play chess but stopped because Brett became too good, and kept winning against Carl.
Brett introduced Carl to tech stocks, starting with Netflix then Apple and now GMERICA (more on this below). Brett admits he received a privileged start but learned to swim on his own when Carl gave him a challenge.
Brett wanted to manage money but had to prove himself by working for free: no salary, no bonus, and no income until he could generate a 7% return, first for Carl, then Brett would get paid later.
In 2012, Carl invested into Netflix on behalf of Brett's recommendation and later in 2015 generated a return of $2.2 Billion, one of Carl's best investments. That success enabled Brett to launch his own fund and start the Sargon Portfolio.
Carl tweeted at 7:41am and Netflix did a 7 for 1 stock split. This is 741 on 741 and might just be the best Fortune I've come across.
Now, back to the SEC filings, so you can see how this Saga took form.

The Succession Plan Where Only The Young Can Ascend

Brett continued to gain success and at one point, he wanted to go independent. However, Carl made him an offer to take over the family Empire and on October 1, 2020 the succession plan began:

Succession plan initiated for Brett Icahn, the Princes of 69D Chess to take over $IEP Empire
I will TLDR summarize these filings in the next section.

Terms of the succession plan and Manager Agreement
Again, I will TLDR summarize these filings in the next section.

TLDR; Summary of Succession Plan & Ascension to the Throne

  • Brett Icahn enters into a Manager Agreement where he becomes the "employee" under a single-member LLC known as Isthmus and serves the "employer" $IEP LP to direct investments
  • Brett becomes the Investment Fund ("Fund") manager and controls all investments as General Partner via Icahn Capital.
  • The Funds are comprised of IEP depository units put up as collateral for loans, including other private investments or entities, and funds from Affiliate parties to IEP -- remember this part for later.
  • Simply said: there's a lot of money involved in the Billions as a massive pooled investment by private equity. This a raid party of Activist Investors that you don't wanna fuck with it.
  • Brett purchases $10M of depository units from $IEP to start his fund via Mesa & River Portfolios.
  • Icahn Capital hires 3 portfolio managers (PMs) to assist Brett, they are: Gary Hu, Andrew Teno, and Steven Miller. Each have designated roles to assist in research, analysis, and evaluating investments. These hired PMs have extensive backgrounds in finance, debt, and special or complex transactions. Additionally, the PMs graduated top of the class from Ivy league colleges and have sat on boards of companies like Xerox, Bausch + Lomb, Newell Brands -- so they know their shit.
  • The Buying Ratio sets the investment terms with a $39:1 ratio which caps out per transaction. For the "employee" Isthmus, that is $7.5M investment with a matching "employer" investment up to $292.5M for combined $300M maximum per investment transaction -- remember this for $BBBYQ later. Think of this like working for an employer and every time you contribute to a 401k, then your employer matches, except this is for investing into public companies and your company co-invests with you.
  • The succession plan requires Brett to work for free again, to prove that he is capable of generating a return for the company and he must complete the task in 7 years or less to become Chairman.
  • Brett is promoted to a director in IEP GP which is the private and controlling company to $IEP. Therefore, Brett directs how the Funds are invested on behalf of his father's empire, and/or with his father.
  • Bottomline: The Prince is in control of the Empire, its vast resources, and he must prove his worthiness to the King. Now, let the Activist Raids begin.
With a succession plan in place and structure set up, the next step was to find a target company that desperately needed saving from the abusive naked shorting hedge funds.

Activist Raiders Set Sail to GMERICA

Somewhere along the way, Ryan Cohen and Brett Icahn met. Perhaps long before the succession plan was activated:

Brett Icahn was involved in the gaming industry in 2010
Brett was a board member of Take-Two Interactive, makers of the Grand Theft Auto game franchise, so it would be safe to say that Brett knew a thing or two about the Gaming Industry and its growth-rate.
This is supported by the fact that Carl admitted he was not into tech stocks therefore Brett likely suggested Take-Two as an investment to his father, just like Netflix.
The Apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Robbie Ferguson of IMX tweets an infographic of 10% YoY growth-rate of Gaming
I wonder if Brett and Robbie know each other, probably.
Then there's this timeline of cohencidences too (Brett has a detailed history of involvement and familiarity with NFTs, crypto, and blockchain tech):

Unverified Brett Icahn twitter account but the timeline is interesting. Still, I kinda like this Brett, no chill on tweets and out there blasting everyone.
P.S. someone had to take that photo of Ryan Cohen and Carl Icahn, guess who?
You're goddamn right.

Enter GameStop: Prelude to GMERICA

One month after IEP's succession plan (Oct 1, 2020), Ryan Cohen writes a letter to GameStop board on November 16, 2020:

RC Ventures letter to GameStop board
Take notice of the first sentence: RCV with AFFILIATES - like the same Affiliates that just raised a massive Multi-Billion Dollar pool of Investment Funds for Investor Activism and acquiring companies.
Are you starting to see where this is all going?
With a turnaround plan successfully implemented into GameStop, the company was able to escape Cellar Boxing. However, it was not entirely free due to swaps as covered by criand's meme stock basket DD.
I believe in the first half of 2021 and post-sneeze, most of the Activism plans were just formulating since GameStop was still in dire straits up until June 2021. And that's when a second sneeze occurred which allowed GME management to conduct an At-The-Market share offering with Jefferies as the handler which generated a $1 Billion Dollar War Chest to finance the development of GameStop NFT marketplace and create the foundation to build a Web 3.0 Metaverse world in 2022.
With one target company acquired and stabilized, it was then time to move onto the next.

Enter Blood, Bath, Beyond: 69D Rugpull

When systemic corruption in the markets were exposed from the Jan 2021 $GME sneeze, an international community of diamond-handed apes were borne from the aftermath, and were ready to gobble up entire company stock floats then Direct Register the Shares in their name ( &
After GameStop, the Activist Investors set their sights on the next target company $BBBY and once again, RC Ventures wrote a letter to the board at Bed, Bath, and Beyond on March 6, 2022:

RC Ventures letter to $BBBY board
There it is again, the Activist Investors and their Affiliates show up to acquire another company.
Except this time they want to spin-off the buybuyBABY to pay off debt in the parent company, with a goal to evaluate a Full Sale to a Well-Capitalized Acquirer.
FYI- as of 4/23/23 from court docket 10 on page 27, it revealed that $BBBY had $1.8 Billion in total debt so they would need a massive pooled investment to buy out the entire company and then spin-off buybuyBABY (but a carve-out is the real plan).
After RCV sent the letter to $BBBY board, it was also around the same time when a bunch of GameStop NFT creators hoisted the flag 🏴‍☠️ and started tweeting in unison.
I won't dive into details since my other GMERICA posts (see my history) cover everything up to this point so I will focus on this event which is relevant:
RC Ventures sells his $BBBY shares on August 18, 2022.
Recently, it was discovered in $BBBYQ ch11 court docs that when RCV "sold" the $BBBY position that it in fact DID NOT return those shares back to the public markets.
Now, if you combine your newfound knowledge about Investment Funds and Affiliates then it becomes pretty clear that RCV "sold" or most likely transferred the shares to an unnamed party and who might that be?
It is Lazard Ferres, an investment bank, which was pointed out in a post titled "The juice is in the fruit. BBBY engaged Lazard Freres in August... one week before RC sold his stake" by travis_b13.
Lazard has been utilized to carry out LBO transactions for IEP's takeover of HP & Xerox by working with Carol Flaton of AlixPartners. Carol was hired as an independent director of $BBBY in late January 2023 and later appointed to $BBBY board.
TLDR summary of Travis_b13's post:
  • In $BBBYQ chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings, it was recently revealed on docket 345 that Lazard Freres, an investment bank was retained for any sales transactions and restructuring.
  • Lazard Freres entered into an Indemnification Letter on August 10, 2022 which enabled Lazard to buy, sell, underwrite, place or purchase any securities in a financing or otherwise placement agency or purchase agreement -- basically Lazard had free reign to do ANYTHING with the shares that it was about to receive from RC Ventures on August 18, 2022
  • Furthermore, docket 345 revealed that Lazard and BBBY had an engagement letter and also a Dealer Manager Agreement dated on October 18, 2022.
  • What is a Dealer Manager Agreement? It is an agreement that governs the relationship between the offeror (BBBY) and the dealer-managers (the Activist Investors & Affiliates) and is signed by the parties to the commencement of a debt tender offer -- a signature LBO move by Icahn to acquire companies.
  • Within the same docket 345, discovered in this other post, it mentions Lazard wanting a percentage fee of buybuyBABY when the sale consummates between debtor (parent company BBBY) and the buyer (IEP).
  • Lazard is holding the shares it received from RC Ventures and entered into another deal via Dealer Manager Agreement with a different party on Oct 18, 2022.
Guess what also happened around October 18, 2022?
Ryan Cohen tweeted this -- perhaps there was a meeting and signatures were required:

OG Activist Investor & The Young
Before we wrap this up, let's tie up some loose ends.

Forced to split post, continue part 2 here:

12s CT - 1900% Fire DMG (PHY). For 8s, reduce Enemies' DMG RES by 10%. 400 BREAK ~~~ Nice little DMG RES debuff, nothing noteworthy but not entirely redundant as well.
27000% Fire DMG (PHY). For 25s, increase own ATK by 100% and reduce Enemies' Burn RES by 50%. 1100 BREAK ~~~ A long-lasting ATK buff and Burn RES debuff. Additionally, the Burn RES debuff can be helpful when paired with his True Arts for enemies with innate Burn RES. Otherwise, his Arts will generally not see use for most situations.
68000% Fire DMG (PHY). 100% chance of inflicting Burn. For 20s, Allies ignore 100% of Enemies' DEF. 1800 BREAK ~~~ What’s there not to like about a decent DMG multiplier with teamwide DEF Ignore buff. One of the few units in the game, as well as the only Fire unit able to give teamwide DEF Ignore. Furthermore, the 100% chance to inflict Burn synergises particularly well with one of his passives, which will be covered below.
When own HP is above 70%, increase own Arts by 3/s, Freeze and Paralysis RES by 100%. ~~~ Amazing passive 3 arts/s generation as well as a nice 100% RES to both Freeze and Paralysis at the cost of keeping Natsu above 70% HP. With heals or barriers in the team, Natsu should rarely fall below this threshold and should be able to take full advantage of this passive.
Increase BE generation by 10%. ~~~ Nothing much to say here, a nice BE boost, although its impact is usually negligible.
Increase own DMG by 100% against Burnt Enemies. ~~~ Sheeesh~ That’s a significant DMG buff against Burning enemies. As stated earlier, most enemies won’t have innate Burn RES and can be burned by Natsu’s True Arts, allowing Natsu to gain a substantial 100% DMG buff against the Burned enemies.

Overall Impressions
Being one of the few units and the only Fire unit able to provide teamwide DEF Ignore in the game, Natsu is definitely by no means a useless unit. Although stages which require DEF Ignore are few and far between, he can still act as a competent DPS unit with his high True Arts DMG multiplier paired with his passive significantly increasing DMG against Burning enemies. Moreover, he is able to passively gain Arts from simply being above 70% HP, which isn’t very difficult to maintain, allowing him to perform well in sustained fights. _ _
Juicy Lucy!

Light, Human
HP - 6680 +999 ATK - 2950 +492 DEF - 2663 +409
12s CT - 1500% Light DMG (PHY). For 8s, reduce Enemies' ATK by 10%. 300 BREAK ~~~ Not much here, the ATK debuff can help with survivability but not very impactful overall.
15000% Water DMG (MAG). Permanently increase allies' Magic DMG by 30% (stackable, up to 150%). 800 BREAK ~~~ Damage is typical for a NA, but also gives a teamwide permanent, stackable buff. It is only for magic damage, encouraging the use of magic-oriented units, though in the worst case scenario, she will give herself a permanent buff at the very least. Using Lucy in conjunction with other sources of artgen can allow her to use her NA 5 times to increase the whole team’s magic damage output by 150%, which is quite substantial. Note that this arts deals Water damage, despite Lucy being a Light unit. This can be helpful if bosses somehow negate or resist light damage, but it generally won't matter much.
50000% Light DMG (MAG). For 20s, increase Allies' Critical Rate by 100% + Increase Allies' Arts by [1 × # of Light Allies in the party]/s. 1600 BREAK Note: This unit's Arts Gen is Type E and will not stack with other Type E Arts Gen. More info can be found in the ... artsgen command. ~~~ Decent multiplier for a support unit, but the most important aspect of Lucy’s TA is that it is currently the only light unit that both gives a teamwide crit rate of 100% while simultaneously supplying arts to the team. The only caveat is that Lucy has to be used in a team with at least 3 light units, and preferably mono-light, for her ArtsGen to be relevant.
When own HP is above 80%, increase ATK and DMG by 50%. ~~~ Light tends to have great healers and tanks, so it is not unrealistic to keep Lucy at high HP most of the time. The reward for keeping her HP close to max is a sizable buff to both ATK and DMG. _ _
Increase DMG to Dark Enemies by 20%. ~~~ Another buff that, while situational, can be relevant against dark enemies which normally abound in the game.
Increase own Arts by 2 for every 10% of max HP lost. ~~~ Seems nice in theory, but in practice, she will gain too few arts from this passive to be significant, as she would need to take 5 times her max HP in damage to gain 100 arts.

Overall Impressions
Lucy does not hide the fact that she is fairly limited to mono-light teams (or teams with 3 light units at the very least). However, she is a strong support for mono-light teams, being capable of permanently ramping the team’s Magic damage with repeated NAs, or contributing to team artgen. Her role is quite obvious and a bit limited compared to the collab’s other units, but she fulfills that role in outstanding fashion. _ _

Water, Human
HP - 6677 +999 ATK - 2999 +459 DEF - 2859 +438
12s CT - 1800% Water DMG (PHY). For 7s, increase own accuracy by 20%. 400 BREAK ~~~ Nothing major to note about, the minor acccuracy buff is appreciated when needed.
22000% Water DMG (PHY). Permanently increase Allies' PHY DMG by 30% (up to 150%). 800 BREAK ~~~ Coupled with his passive, this allows Gray to increase the team's PHY DMG, including himself in quests with many prestages, making him very useful as a mob clearer.
50000% Water DMG (PHY). For 20s, increase own DMG by 100%. If used for the first time of the Quest, increase Allies' Arts by 70. 1800 BREAK ~~~ Another great DMG buff, albiet selfish this time, to burn down the boss after clearing all those prestages. The added first time effect of a massive 70 arts boost to the team helps if anyone is falling behind on arts when they reach the boss, something that Gray likely won't have issues with given his unique passive.
_ _
At the start of a Battle, increase own Arts by own Luck. ~~~ The bread and butter of what makes Gray such a good farming unit. When he's maxed at 120 luck, that allows him to use Arts immediately at the start of each battle without having to rely on any BE or equips. With enough prestages, it'll give him a use of True Arts for free.
Increase Water RES by 10%. ~~~ The very minor resistance to Water is appreciated, but I don't think it'll make a difference very much.
Increase Freeze RES by 50%. ~~~ Once again appreciated to protect him from freeze, but it's basically a coinflip as to if he gets frozen.

Overall Impressions
Gray comes swinging at farm teams as an effective upgrade to Kazuma from Yu Yu Hakusho. As a Luck unit, he excels at not only clearing waves, but also providing teamwide Arts (for the first time), and even as a decent DPS/Buffer. He provides excellent damage buffs to himself and to the team, with very offensive slots to help in full luck nukes. With all that said, he serves as one of the best Luck units in the game, period. _ _
fix Erza
STATS**  HP - 6696 +999 ATK - 3105 +475 DEF - 2780 +427  **SKILL**  12s CT - 2000% Light DMG (PHY). For 8s, increase own DMG by 10%. 900 BREAK ~~~ Being a small boost to begin with, 10% is a mere droplet in such a large pool of DMG Up buffs provided by Erza's True Arts.  **ARTS**  20000% Light DMG (PHY). For 20s, increase own ATK by 50% and reduce enemies' evasion 30%. 1200 BREAK ~~~ While a 50% ATK boost is pretty decent, you'll mostly just be using Erza's True Arts for the more favorable boosts in damage output and also how you'd want to use her True Arts consecutively to ramp the damage up. However, coupled with accuracy buffs, the 30% evasion debuff can come in handy against highly evasive bosses.  **TRUE ARTS  70000% Light DMG (PHY). For 15s, reduce enemies' Light Resistance by 40% and increase own Critical DMG by [60% × # of times this True Arts has been activated, up to 300%]. 1600 BREAK ~~~ Huge multiplier, potent resistance debuff, and increasingly large DMG up buffs. With passive critical rate as the cherry on top, it will hit harder than a truck searching for isekai victims. Furthermore, it will get more powerful after each use (effects max out at 5 uses, of course). Even without ramping, her True Arts can already unleash a huge amount of damage and provide great damage support for light damage dealers with herself included.
_ _
ABILITIES  When own HP is above 90%, increase own Arts gauge by 4/s. Additionally, increase own Critical Rate by 100% if unafflicted by Status Ailments ~~~
A key component of her kit, this passive is something you'll want to maintain in order for Erza perform her utmost best as a DPS unit. The automatic Arts gauge generation will help greatly in stacking up her DMG buffs, and the innate critical rate boost will ensure maximal damage against enemies with high defense. Against foes with critical resistance, you can bring an additional critical rate boost to land critical hits, assuming that the enemies don't have a resistance value substantially higher than 100% (in which case, you'll bring DEF ignore).  Increase own Light Resistance by 10%. ~~~ The value is pretty negligible, and it's especially so since Erza's not redirecting damage or anything.  Increase own Paralysis Resistance by 50%. ~~~ Being a mere 50%, Erza might occasionally dodge paralysis, but this would mostly reduce the paralysis duration by a bit. Not really special/important to Erza's kit, and you could always just bring a defense item to deal with various kinds of ailments.

_ _
OVERALL IMPRESSIONS  Erza can already unleash a great amount of damage on the initial True Arts, and she can increase her damage output until she caps out at a total of five True Arts uses. As such, she can serve as an excellent DPS unit for most content, whether the stage is short or long. The conditions on her passive seem kind of strict, but it ultimately isn't an issue for lengthier content (where it will matter most for her kit) since you're always expected to bring a healer for those kinds of stages anyway. And unlike most ramping DPS units, she doesn't need too much to get the ball rolling, and there aren't really any disadvantages that would deter her usage in general content as she would already be able to deal more than satisfactory damage from the get-go without hassles like stacking Normal Arts or severe health drain.  For nuking, she can provide pretty good damage support, boasting a potent Light Resistance debuff and two 5-star physical slots that could fit more debuffs or buffs to further enhance the team's damage output while also dishing out a fairly large amount of damage herself. As a side note, her innate critical rate and ability to hold fast, hard-hitting weapons like True Grand Destin may be of use for clearing some mob stages on auto (or just in general). _ _

2023.05.30 07:26 EarlyMourning12 I am having some worries about leaving one of my jobs

Hi. I'm currently in a situation involving leaving a job and I have a question. This is gonna be a bit of a long description.
Currently, I am technically employed at 2 different workplaces and earlier today I told my boss at Workplace A over text that I'm quitting due to the workplace conditions, that I have found another opportunity and that I would be in at some point during the week to drop off my formal resignation letter and my key to the store. (He for some reason won't give me his email address, so I text him instead as it is the only other form of writing i can supply.) I should probably note that all of the workplace policies were from word of mouth and that I didn't sign anything upon being hired. The workplace conditions are a whole other can of worms, but just know they are not very fair to the employees working there. To make it short, we are very understaffed and I have no schedule despite working there since November of last year. Employer at Workplace A is also petty and tends to belittle his employees if things don't go the way he wants them to go.
Here's where my issue comes in; every Monday or Tuesday (is subject to change during the week), he has me come in and work alone in the store. Aside from me, we only have one other "main staff" (full time employee) and they are supposed to be off tomorrow, whether or not he called them in to work I don't know. A while after telling him that I wouldn't be working there anymore, my employer from Workplace B said that she needed me to work from 10-4 tomorrow, to which I accepted the shift. My question is, if I go to Workplace B and it turns out my coworker from Workplace A wasn't called in and I was expected to show up, can I be held responsible legally?
I don't care if he fires me, I'm quitting anyway and I have another job lined up, but I don't know if I can legally be held responsible (Ex. He can sue me for not showing up and opening the store)

Kumano Kodo
One of our favourite walks, Explore Kumano Kodo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, tucked into the mountainous Kii Peninsula and discover Japan’s rich history
What is the Kumano Kodo?
In the mountains of the Kii Peninsula is an area known as Kumano, where an ancient network of pilgrimage routes to the Kumano Sanzan shrines of Kumano Hongu Taisha, Kumano Hayatama Taisha, and Kumano Nachi Taisha are etched into the earth. Five prominent pilgrimages form the Kumano Kodo:
  • The Nakahechi Route
  • The Kohechi Route
  • The Ohechi Route
  • The Omine-Okugakemichi Route
  • The Iseji Route
These pathways offer travellers an authentic experience of Japan as the locals welcome walkers into the region that showcases the island nation’s cultural roots. As you walk across the landscape, you will pass through small Japanese towns, beneath cedar trees, and across paths that follow the shoreline. Each pilgrimage is quite different from the others; some present more challenges, some are longer, and some have rare sights that can only be explored on foot.
History of the Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Route
The route is considered to be one of the country’s most sacred trails.
During Japan’s formative years, the native religion of Shinto was formed, a way of life that worshipped the natural world and the sacred sites of Kumano. As Buddhism was introduced to Japan, the mountainous area became a training area for Buddhist monks. Eventually, Shintoism and Buddhism merged, creating a syncretic belief system. Over time, the Shinto deities were believed to be emanations of Buddha, and the monasteries became a place of worship.
For over a millennium, the routes became a pathway for those travelling to the Kumano shrines in search of spiritual enlightenment. These trails were crossed by emperors, the nobility and their families, and in later years by samurai warriors and then the people of Japan.
Seven things to expect on the Kumano Kodo
These sacred pathways are rich in history, with each route offering something different. If you have chosen to embark on the Kumano Kodo trail, here are a few things you can expect along the way:
  • The Kumano Kodo trail is open year-round, but there are ideal times to visit if you want to ensure the best hiking experience. We recommend you hike between April and November for the great weather this area enjoys.
  • Accommodation is available for hikers along the trail, from lodges to ryokans and minshukus. You must book accommodations before your arrival.
  • Being fluent in Japanese is appreciated but optional. Most directions and information about the trail are displayed in Japanese and English for international travellers.
  • Most of the accommodations along the trail have Wi-Fi access for guests.
  • You can access luggage shuttle services that will transport your belongings from your last accommodations stop to your next. These services are available when you are booking your Kumano Kodo trail, especially through an established service provider like Auswalk.
  • You have the option to hike the trail independently, guided or self-guided.
  • The guesthouses and ryokans that hikers stay at along the trail can provide meals during your walk, from dinners to packed lunches, as you make your way to the next town.
Essential Supplies for Kumano Kodo
  • If you are an avid hiker, you will know that there are essentials to every great hike to make the journey as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Before walking on the Japanese mountainside, it is important to research and seek out information about supplies that locals and seasoned hikers suggest for this area.
  • Our research suggests a few essential items you won’t want to forget. Firstly, quality hiking boots. The terrain and duration along the trail can vary, and sturdy and supportive boots can make all the difference. We suggest wearing your boots before you leave to avoid any initial discomfort with new shoes.
  • Another valuable item is hiking poles. It can be challenging to climb up and down uneven paths, and the added stability will support you as you climb. Many hiking poles have a lightweight, compact design; therefore, they can fold down and be stored in your backpack in between use.
  • Next, invest in a good-quality backpack that is weather resistant, versatile, and includes a hydro pack for water. It is also essential to fill your backpack with a few bare necessities. A few practical items all hikers should carry include a first aid kit, weatherproof clothing, food, water, a flashlight, and a whistle. Other essentials may be toiletries, a camera, chargers, and clothing.
  • For those fortunate enough to walk the paths of the Kumano Kodo, take a moment to imagine the lives of those whose footsteps are etched into the earth in the same way yours will be when you leave this sacred place.
Is the Kumano Kodo like the Camino de Santiago?
Only two pilgrimage routes in the world are recognised as UNESCO World Heritage Sites—Kumano Kodo and Camino de Santiago.
There are a few differences, including distance. The Camino de Santiago covers 790 km, while the Kumano Kodo covers 68 km. The conditions are also very different, with the Kumano Kodo weaving through rugged mountain terrain and the Camino de Santiago predominantly winding through rural Spain ( and parts of Portugal and even France).
Is Kumano Kodo crowded?
The Kumano Kodo walk is a relatively quiet journey, with hikers occasionally crossing paths. Due to the limited trail accommodations, travellers can avoid large crowds.
Can you walk the Kumano Kodo trek solo?
Yes, hikers can trek Kumano Kodo by themselves. Booking accommodations at the lodges along the trail ensures that staff in the area are aware of your movements and can account for you at every stop. If you are looking for recommendations for walking companies for the Kumano Kodo trail we suggest Auswalk.
Is the Kumano Kodo a hard hike?
The Kumano Kodo hike offers many different paths, each of which is moderate to challenging. However, these trails vary in difficulty depending on the individual, so thoroughly research each before embarking.

2023.05.30 07:25 kwangcleanroom The Effectiveness Of Air Showers

The controversy over the use of air showers in the contamination control process has been ongoing for many years. The effectiveness of an Air Shower entry system relates directly to its proper design and use. In recent years tests have been conducted and articles written which show air showers to be 35% to 90% efficient in the removal of contamination dependent upon the size of the particle,the design of the air shower, garment type, garment procedures,shower utilization technique, cycle time, and cleanroom classification.
A conventional air shower should only be incorporated within the design of an engineered cleanroom “entry system.” For the purposes of our discussions, . “entry system” should be defined as a well designed garmenting area incorporating proper class identification, garment storage, and garmenting procedures, with the overall goal being the prevention of particulate entering the cleanroomon garments, or as a result of the garmenting process. An Air shower is defined as an isolated chamber equipped with a self contained blower and motor, interlocking doors, hepa/ulpa filtration, and a recirculating exhaust system. The features, functions, and benefits of an air shower entry system depend largely on its proper design and use.
Filtration which is the guiding premise of cleanroom design, should not be overlooked in air shower design. It should not be assumed that air showers recirculate clean air, therefore they do not require filtration themselves. Air showers, as cleanrooms, should follow the basic concept of filtering and moving air, to both remove contamination from the garment and extracting the removed contamination from the environment. The authors suggest the use of ulpa filtration 99.9995 % efficient @ .12 micron.
Proper protocol in using an air shower weighs greatly on its effectiveness. Although not part of air shower design, it is a large factor in designing the cleanroom “entry system.” As is commonly accepted, training is of utmost importance in insuring reduced contamination levels in cleanrooms, additionally it is of utmost importance in extracting maximum effectiveness from an air shower. Proper protocol suggests personnel should be trained to rotate continuously 360 degrees during the air shower cycle to insure contamination removal is as efficient as possible. For further air shower effectiveness, hands should be placed on head while rotating.
Cycle time is considered to be the most critical aspect of air shower effectiveness. Studies have suggested that a minimum of 20 seconds is required to properly remove contamination from garments. More intriguingly, our own studies tend to indicate garments in the second and third day of use require longer air shower cycle times to remove contamination. These findings suggest a “smart” air shower design utilizing a real time clock and calendar to increase cycle time during the later stages of garment use, or better still an air shower design utilizing particle count technology to control exit, would most probably produce a benefit which far outweighs the additional cost.

2023.05.30 07:24 throwawaybreakinbbq AITA for "breaking" in to my friends barbecue when i wasn't invited

Okay so this happened earlier today and I can't get it out of my mind and I genuinely don't know who is in the wrong here. So me and my friend(Brian) were hanging out when we decided to bike to our other friend's(Aidan) house who lived about 2 miles away. Well when we got there Aidan was royally pissed because he had company over and we shouldn't have shown up unexpectedly. Well we were a bit taken a back but we decided to leave but I had to get directions to this store we were trying to go to and I couldn't figure out how to get it to change the directions to biking. Well before we could go Aidan came back out and invited us in and that turned really awkward because we felt we had intruded their party. Well we were about to leave when Aidan told us his parents were making us some burgers too so we felt obligated to stay. After food we left and went to another store and a few hours later Aidan tells us his parents yelled at him because we weren't supposed to be there and I just feel that we were forced into staying there and wanted to leave and brought up leaving almost the entire time but I don't know if I did something wrong so AITA?
