  • The top 8 players advance to a six-day knockout, with two days each for the quarterfinals, semi-finals and final.
The time controls used in the Champions Chess Tour will be the same as for the Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour:
  • Rapid: 15'+10" (each player has 15 minutes for all moves, with a 10-second increment after each move)
  • Blitz: 5'+3"
  • Armageddon: White has 5 minutes to Black’s 4, with no increments. If the game is drawn, Black wins the match.
A total of 50 Tour points are at stake in the Skilling Open (10 for finishing 1st in the preliminary rounds, and 40 for winning the final). Tour points are important since the top 8 players on the Tour will automatically be invited to the next tournament.

2020.11.20 21:04 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 11 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-5-1) @ Cleveland Browns (6-3)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-5-1) at Cleveland Browns (6-3)
This is a matchup between two teams headed in completely opposite directions. The Browns are a team on the rise looking to have their first winning record since 2007. Meanwhile the Eagles look like they are headed to their first losing record since Doug Pederson’s first season in 2016. Pederson’s offense which was once thought to be creative has become stale. The screen game which was once a staple of the offense has become nonexistent and Pederson frequently abandons the run early despite having one of the top running backs in the league which kills the play-action game. The coach’s arrogance has prevented him from hiring a true OC and handing over play-calling duties and that arrogance has seen his team make first round exits in the playoffs the last two years. I don’t have an answer for what this team needs to do for a win because with Doug calling the plays I think we can expect the same stale offense we have seen throughout this season. The same can be said with the Eagles defense where Jim Schwartz believes in his scheme over his players and rarely puts his guys in the best position and relies on them winning one on ones to bail him out. Hopefully this season will be a wakeup call to ownership and the coaching staff that the Super Bowl season was 3 years ago and they have been mediocre since that game. As always go Birds.

Eagles 29 - Browns 10
The Eagles kicked off the 2016 season against the Cleveland Browns. 2nd Overall pick Carson Wentz made his debut. The Eagles started off well. Wentz threw his 1st career TD to Jordan Matthews. Caleb Sturgis missed a field goal in the 1st Quarter but made one early in the 2nd Quarter to extend the lead to 10–0. The Browns would respond early in the 2nd quarter with an Isaiah Crowell 1 yard TD to cut the Eagles lead to 10–7. The Eagles only managed to kick another Sturgis field goal in the 2nd Quarter which resulted in a 13–7 lead at halftime. The Browns then kicked another field goal to change the score to 13–10. Midway through the 3rd Quarter, a bad snap by Browns center Cameron Erving went over the head of Quarterback Robert Griffin III and into the end zone for a safety and it extended the Eagles lead to 15–10. Following that drive, Wentz and the offense went back to work . Wentz threw his 2nd TD to Nelson Agholor to change the score to 22–10. The Eagles mainly burned out the clock in the 4th quarter to weaken the Browns hopes of a comeback. Ryan Mathews sealed the game with a 1-yard TD to make the final score 29–10.

Stats to Know
Eagles to Face One of the Greatest Former Eagles of All Time
I’m not sure I know of any Eagles fan that misses former Eagles Safety Andrew Sendejo, do you? Hey Browns fans, are you enjoying him yet? Sendejo is known for not just his bad tackling, but also taking out his own teammates (“Sorry, Avonte!”). It just so happens that Sendejo’s propensity for missed tackles is at an all-time low this season. Of 93 Safeties with appreciable snaps, Sendejo is tied for 4th-worst tackling efficiency (weighted per snap). He is tied for 2nd-worst in number of missed tackles against the run (7), which puts him on a season’s pace notably worse than any other season in the raw stat. His tackling efficiency this season is 5.2, so far, compared to 6.0 last year and 7.2 the year before. Looking at coverage ability, he’s allowing a passer rating of 135 this season, compared to 95 last year, and 84 the year prior. I’ll take Will Parks for now. You enjoy, Browns fans.
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Run Defense vs Browns Rushing Offense
The Browns are an analytically driven team and because of that they know that a good, efficient, and explosive passing attack is key to success in the NFL. That has been a bit of a struggle at times this year for a number of reasons. One area of their team where they haven't struggled is in the running game. First year HC Kevin Stefanksi has brought a lot of the good he implemented with the Vikings to the Browns as they have an incredibly effective and diverse running game; they do just about everything and do it well. Why? Their offensive line has quickly become one of the best in the NFL. A big reason for this success is new OL coach Bill Callahan, one of the best OL coaches in the game. One thing that works in Callahan's favor is the improved talent on the roster. Joel Bitonio has long been on of the best guards in the NFL; Callahan has then made Wyatt Teller a force on the inside. Rookie Jedrick Willis has been a stud at Left Tackle and Center JC Tretter is very solid and a bit underrated. The Browns may be without RT Jack Conklin on Sunday due to COVID; his replacement will be an inevitable downgrade, unfortunately. Stefanski has gotten by with worse at the position, just look at the Vikings OL. Their scheme does a lot to hide the flaws in talent which is what any good coach should be doing. On top of that, the Browns will have Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt at running back. This is the best running back room in the NFL. The Eagles have struggled against the run of late due to their atrocious LBs and Safeties. Their defensive line is still good, but watch the linebackers. They aren't physical and they have absolutely no clue how to consistently execute their run fits. Watch this opening TD run from Daniel Jones. What on God's green earth is this? TJ Edwards absolutely blew his run responsibility. Watch Jalen Mills shy away from contact. This is why the Eagles run defense is bad. In possibly unfavorable conditions to pass, the Browns may lean on their advantage upfront and the Eagles may struggle to stop it. There isn't much reason to think they won't either as they've struggled against lesser competition than what they are about to face.
Eagles Passing Attack vs Browns Pass Defense
The Browns have a pretty average defense by DVOA but do have a good cornerback in Denzel Ward. Defensively, the Browns are pretty similar to Eagles in terms of scheme. Ward is very sticky in man coverage and isn't afraid to get physical with receivers. Ronnie Harrison has emerged this year as a quality safety after flaming out with the Jaguars the previous couple of season. Terrance Mitchell is also another quality corner for the Browns. Outside of that, there isn't much that is spectacular for the Browns after their pass rush. The Eagles have healthy weapons in Goedert, Reagor, Fulgham, Ward, Alshon, Sanders, and Scott to take advantage of holes in the middle of their defense. The Browns also start Andrew Sendejo at Safety, who all Eagles fans should be familiar with as he sucks. News broke on Friday that Myles Garrett is on the COVID list and won't play on Sunday. Hopefully Garrett will be fine; in terms of football, this is an incredible gift for the Eagles. Garrett is on his way to earning his first DPOY award and would be an absolutely nightmare for the Eagles to defend even as the OL gets healthy. The Browns pass rush could still have it's moments against the Eagles OL but given the Garrett loss, the Eagles need to be able to take advantage of the holes in the Browns pass defense. Can the Eagles suddenly shit tier starter actually play well? Can Doug remember how to be a good offensive mind?
Eagles Pass Rush vs Browns Pass Blocking
The Eagles defense lives and dies by their pass rush. They will have their full compliment of pass rushers again for this contest against a very good Browns offensive line. The major weakness for the Browns OL on Sunday will be at RT as Jack Conklin may not play. If he doesn't, the Browns would be wise to send all kinds of help that way as Brandon Graham has been having an All Pro caliber season. It is key the Eagles get pressure on Baker Mayfield when they do pass as he is one of the leagues worst QBs under pressure. Mayfield is a lot like Wentz this year: prone to mistakes under pressure with poor pocket management that puts him in trouble. The Browns have more than enough weapons in the passing game to be able to take advantage of the Eagles defense provided Mayfield has time to throw. Darius Slay will give Jarvis Landry issues but no one else should really put up much of a fight against the Browns receivers. The Eagles LBs and Safeties are also incapable of covering anything; the Browns TEs and RBs should have a field day. As always with the Eagles, as the DL goes so goes the defense as a whole.

2020.11.20 13:03 House_of_Suns /r/QOTSA Official Band of the Week 29: PIXIES

When we try to describe a taste, it is usually done by referencing other tastes or smells. Like, this Scotch tastes like a mixture of caramel overlaid with lilac and just a hint of rocket fuel and dirty socks. When we try to describe something we touched, we reference similar feelings. This would be like describing the feeling of touching a down blanket as being as soft as 10-ply. We do much the same thing when we describe a band or a genre of music. “This singer,” we say, “sounds like Debbie Harry and Tom Waits had an illicit affair, and the bastard child of that union was raised in an orphanage run by a strung-out Demi Lovato.”
Not for nothing, but I’m pretty sure that the singer in that description would be Taylor Momsen.
...but I digress.
The founding member of this week’s band once advertised for musicians who liked the music of Hüsker Dü and Peter, Paul, and Mary. In fact, the band is a study in contrasts - in style, in volume, in lyrical subject material, and from album to album. They are a band that never hit it big, but who influenced lots and lots of artists who did.
That's right. As requested, this week's featured artist is Pixies.
About Them
Wait, don’t you mean THE Pixies?
Nope. It’s Pixies. Just Pixies. That’s their name. Just like the name of the nation is Canada, not The Canada. Just one name, like Madonna and Xzibit and Sting and Prince and Eminem and Lorde. Like, if you put the word ‘the’ before any of those artists (The Eminem ?), it dramatically changes the meaning, so they are definitively known just by the one word.
Yeah, I wish it felt less awkward, but it is what it is.
So you know how you sometimes say that the time has come? As in, the time has come for a female, asian, black Vice-President? Well, that time for Pixies was really in the mid-1990s when Grunge and Alternative Rock ruled the airwaves.
That’s why it is such a bummer that they broke up in 1993.
Formed in Boston in 1986, Pixies were an incredibly influential and innovative band who truly paved the way for acts like Nirvana and The Smashing Pumpkins and Weezer and Radiohead. They were an evocative and eclectic mix of rock and folk and punk and laid-back surf sounds, with multiple vocalists and musical genres. Their lyrics ran the gamut from reincarnation to extraterrestrials to pop culture to mutilation. The band was founded by Charles Michael Kittridge Thompson IV. Recognizing that his name sounds like a Disney villain, he changed it to the uplifting and somewhat culturally insensitive Black Francis. Seriously, I’m not certain you could do something like that today.
Black Francis grew up as the son of bar owners in California and was influenced by his parents’ love of Folk music and Christian Rock. He was not exposed to Punk or Rock until his teens, which may explain on some level why the band’s music can veer so wildly from one style to another. After spending some time in Puerto Rico, he met co-founder Joey Santiago at the University of Massachusetts in the early 1980s.
Santiago was born in the Philippines in 1965. His family moved to America to escape Ferdinand Marcos in 1972. Santiago was obsessed with Iggy Pop and The Velvet Underground as a teenager and learned to play guitar. One evening at Uni he heard loud guitar cranking out down the hall and rushed to join in. It was Black Francis. The two bonded and became friends and roommates. They went to concerts - notably, Black Flag - and were inspired. Black Francis was a singer and guitarist and set about turning his life experiences into songs.
By 1986, the duo had a decision to make: drop out of school and go to New Zealand to see Halley’s Comet, or form a band. They chose to found Pixies. They put the aforementioned advertisement out in the paper to get a bass player and met Kim Deal, the band’s female co-singer. Kim Deal and her identical twin sister Kelley Deal grew up listening to Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. Kim became a prolific songwriter as a kid and learned the guitar. Sister Kelley played the bass and drums. Kim borrowed Kelley’s bass for the audition and nailed it.
Pixies offered Kelley Deal the drumming gig but she declined, not feeling like she was ready. Don’t feel too bad for her though - she moved to California to pursue a career in computer programming. No shit, true story. When that didn’t pan out, she picked up the guitar and joined the band The Breeders. So that turned out alright for her.
Pixies hired David Lovering to sit behind the kit because he was at Kim’s wedding reception. Kim’s husband recommended him. Lovering is (if you can believe it) an accomplished magician who has actually performed under the name The Scientific Phenomenalist.
Geez, man, save some ladies for the rest of us.
The dude was working at Radio Shack (fuck, he had all the dating advantages) and graduated with a degree in electronic engineering and had a job to build lasers. He drummed on the side for fun with a few bar bands. Goddam chick magnet. Lovering was also able to secure his parents’ garage as a rehearsal space. Honestly, is everything this man ever did an absolute amazing move of male seduction? Side note: this fucker was such a goddam stud that after Pixies broke up, he TURNED DOWN an opportunity to drum for the Foo Fighters.
Not.
Fucking.
Kidding.
Some guys have all the luck.
With the lineup set, the band started to get gigs in small bars in Boston. At one of these, they were discovered by record producer Gary Smith. Smith - who would later work with Billy Bragg and 10,000 Maniacs - knew talent when he saw it, and got the band into the studio to do some recording.
This series of recordings came to be known as The Purple Tape, because of the color of the background. The work was done over a period of three days and produced 17 tracks. SEVENTEEN. That is an enormous outpouring in a 72-hour period. Pixies’ new manager and local promoter Ken Goes took those recordings and shopped them to a number of record labels. One label, 4AD, took an interest and signed the band. Eight of the tracks from the Smith recordings were made into an EP called Come on Pilgrim, their first official release. Two of the tracks on the EP were sung in Spanish and two were about incest. Yep, you read that right.
Pixies followed up their 1987 EP debut by spending ten days in the studio recording their first full length album, Surfer Rosa. Two tracks on the album - Gigantic and Where Is My Mind? - were released as singles in 1988. The mix of hard distorted rock and bizarre lyrics with peaceful pop melodies made it unlike anything else in music at the time. Their fresh sound (and perhaps the racy cover) brought the band legit airplay on college radio in the US.
Over in Europe, though, the album rocketed up the Indie charts. Just like health care and no need for gun ownership, Pixies were much more popular in Europe than in their own country. Pixies toured heavily in support of the album, and found a growing number of fans of their unique sound. Surfer Rosa also had an impact on a number of artists, most notably Kurt Cobain. Cobain would state that the album Nevermind was directly inspired by it. Well, I guess both albums did have nudity on the cover, so there is that. Cobain went so far as to hire the producer of Surfer Rosa, Steve Albini, to work on In Utero.
The album Doolittle was released in 1989 and picked up right where Surfer Rosa left off. This is because Francis was writing songs for the album while the band was touring. Doolittle got the band signed to the major label Elektra. It spawned the singles Debaser, Here Comes Your Man, and Monkey Gone to Heaven. Songs on it covered disparate subjects like gouging out eyes and murdesucide as well as environmentalism and biblical stories. This album is like taking one song off of each King Gizzard album and trying to mash them together. It is like David Lynch doing meth and then magic mushrooms and then coke, one after another.
It was wildly popular in the underground scene and hit #8 on the British charts. Here Comes Your Man even charted in the US. It actually sold decently and was a moderate success overall. But what is really most notable about the album is not so much a single song, as their use of dynamics. Pixies pioneered the sudden swings of loud to quiet in songs, and made it their thing.
Unfortunately, the pressure of recording the album and the constant touring were leading to cracks in the band. Deal and Francis began to bicker and spat almost constantly. This escalated to the point where Francis hurled a guitar at Deal during a concert, and Deal refused to perform. The source of the conflict was songwriting: Francis wanted creative control and so did Deal. The tension grew so high that the band took a break. Francis did a solo tour in that time and Deal went off to found the band The Breeders - the same one sister Kelley would join.
Since Deal found a creative outlet elsewhere, she came to accept that Pixies really had only one singer: Francis. After a hiatus of over a year, the band came back together to record the album Bossanova. With a sound more like Surf Rock and songs about space aliens, it was another departure from the norm. It was also the first Pixies record to not have any songs by Deal.
That just made it more popular in Europe. No kidding, it went to number 3 on the UK Charts. Two singles from the album - Velouria and Dig for Fire - got ample airplay. They once again began to tour, and once again hit the grind of the road.
The band entered the studio one last time in 1991 to record Trompe le Monde. The most notable thing about this record - apart from it being their last studio album - was how little it featured Kim Deal. One reviewer said it was “...essentially Black Francis’ solo debut.” Bossanova had no songs written by her, but still had her as a vocalist. This record pushed her into the harmony role. Trompe le Monde had four singles: Planet of Sound, Alec Eiffel, Letter to Memphis, and Head On (apply directly to the forehead). The record got them great gigs, including opening for U2 on the Zoo TV tour.
Abruptly in 1993, Pixies came to an end. Black Francis simply announced on BBC - without even telling the other members of the band - that they were over. The constant touring, the bickering, the strain of recording and the changing dynamic as Deal was slowly squeezed out of the band had given rise to conflict that overshadowed any growing success they had achieved.
From 1993 to 2003, the band members fell into solo projects (or magic performances) and it seemed like things were pretty bleak for fans. Unless you liked pulling rabbits out of hats, I mean. Then you were golden.
But in 2003, they decided to cash in on that sweet nostalgia give it another go. They got together and released a series of short EPs to justify touring and hit the circuit again. Fans didn’t care. They just wanted to see them play. They did gimmicks like play the album Doolittle track-for-track on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. They had fun, they made cash, and fans got to see them. All was right in the world.
But the tensions slowly rose over time and by 2013, the band announced that Deal was no longer a member. The slow breakup that had begun with Bossanova was finally formalized. She was replaced by Kim Shattuck from Pandoras, who was in turn replaced by Paz Lenchantin of A Perfect Circle. Lenchantin was made a permanent member of the band in 2016.
The lineup with Lenchantin has done more than tour: they no-shit released new music in 2016. The album Head Carrier was no mere collection of EP tracks; it was a legit new record. And they followed this up last year. The album Beneath the Eyrie dropped in September of 2019 and once again moved the band in new directions.
The influence of Pixies cannot be understated. Kurt Cobain loved them. U2 still love them. Radiohead swear by them. The late great David Bowie was a huge Pixies fan and when touring with his side project Tin Machine in 1991, Bowie and the boys covered Debaser. He also covered the song Cactus on his 2002 album Heathen.
Even if you don’t care for them without Kim Deal (when is Nick coming back?), you gotta love that they are still making music.
Links to QOTSA
Pixies’ current bassist Paz Lenchantin was in the band A Perfect Circle with resident QotSA vampire and guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen. Lenchantin is also credited as playing the strings on Mosquito Song.
Josh did a radio show a number of years ago discussing the history of the band.
Dave Grohl thought so much of Dave Lovering’s magic act (these are the Daves I know, I know...these are the Daves I know) that he offered him a chance to drum for the Foo Fighters.
Their Music
Velouria - probably the laziest video ever made
Cactus
Gigantic - Live in 1988
Gouge Away - live on BBC in 2019
Monkey Gone to Heaven
Wave of Mutilation - UK Surf and Original
Debaser
Where Is My Mind - Oh look! I have eyes on a locomotive.
Hey - Seriously Lumineers, Pixies did it first and weirder.
Here Comes Your Man - Clearly they didn't have the room for lip syncing in their 50$ video budget.
Show Them Some Love
/thepixies
Yeah, I know I made a big deal about it not being THE Pixies, but it turns out that /pixies was already taken and is a private subreddit...which leads me to believe that this is some kind of short hair fetish club.
Really, your guess is as good as mine.

2020.11.13 21:21 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 10 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-4-1) @ New York Giants (2-5)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-4-1) vs New York Giants (2-7)
I don’t know what to say about the NFC East Matchups. The entire division is struggling with major injuries to key players and the division is by far the worst in the NFL, but the divisional games have all been competitive with the last matchup between these two being decided by a single point. The Eagles will show up to this matchup a little bit healthier especially in weapons for Carson who will have Miles Sanders, Dallas Goedert, Alshon Jeffrey and Jalen Raegor for this matchup, all of whom were out last game. Carson was able to throw for 300+ yards last game, he should be able to build on that number with an added number of weapons. The Giants were able to put up points last week vs the Football Team and pull out their second W of the season. The Eagles will need to pressure Jones and force him into turning the ball over like the first matchup and the Eagles need to be able to take advantage of those turnovers. Carson said he reviewed his turnovers in the first half of the season and said he knows he needs to protect the ball better, he needs to prove it this week coming off the bye. If Carson protects the football, the Eagles should be able to move the ball against the bewildered Giants and cruise to an easy win, but if he continues to turn the ball over like the first half, I predict another sloppy NFCE matchup that goes down to the wire. Go Birds!

Eagles 34 - Giants 17
Wentz led to his fourth straight must-win game and the team finished an elimination game without seven starters on offense. Already missing three starting wide receivers for the fourth straight game, the Eagles also began the game without Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz and right tackle Lane Johnson. Then they lost running back Miles Sanders and three-time Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks in the first half. But Scott, Josh Perkins, Greg Ward, Deontay Burnett and Robert Davis combined for 16 catches on 25 targets, 225 yards receiving, 54 yards rushing and four TDs. The five players were cut a combined eight times by four teams since Aug. 31. Carson Wentz threw for 289 yards, including a 24-yard TD pass to Perkins, who was promoted from the practice squad on Nov. 30. It was the Eagles’ 7th straight win vs the Giants and clinched the NFCE. Giants coach Pat Shurmur was fired the following Monday.

Recap from Last Week’s Games.
Eagles - Eagles were on bye Week 9.
Giants - For the second time in four weeks, New York beat Washington on Sunday, holding on for a 23-20 victory at FedEx Field. It was another close win for the Giants over their NFC East rival, after earning a 20-19 victory in the first meeting between the two teams in Week 6. New York built a 17-point lead by halftime, and although Washington made things interesting in the second half, it wasn't enough to come back against the Giants, who relied on early success from their offense and big plays from their defense.

Stats to Know
Shane Lemieux’s Education
Rookie OG Shane Lemieux has facial hair. Fletcher Cox has a mustache. And that’s about as much as RG Shane Lemieux will be able to mirror DT Fletcher Cox. Due to Will Hernandez’s injury, Monsieur Lemieux is in at Guard and this week will prove challenging for him, to say the least. According to PFF, the greatest NFL player evaluation service in the history of evaluation services, not a single other OLman with appreciable snaps has offered a lower Pass Block grade than him, at 12.1. For him to achieve that, while still only allowing 8 pressures (over 2 weeks: 5 & 3 pressures), is impressive. To do that you have to be monumentally bad and he can’t afford that sort of game against the Eagles’ Defensive Line.
Matchups to Watch
Carson Wentz vs. Competency
The biggest issue facing the Eagles in the short term isn't the injuries - it is the QB. That's my QB, a guy I've long defended and still believe in, but BAE has me wavering. The simple fact is Carson Wentz is a bottom 3 QB in the NFL this year and that's his fault. From accuracy, to turnovers, to shit pocket management, etc, Wentz has been trailer trash in 2020 aside from like 2, maybe 3 games. Yes, the roster has been decimated. Yes, coaching has been wildly unimpressive. However, Wentz can't take care of business irrespective of the situation around him. Backup receivers don't cause inaccurate passes. Backup offensive linemen don't make him hold onto the ball too long to where he gets hit and fumbles. No one is making him skip back and forth over the line of self-destruction and aggression. Wentz is doing that on his own. He obviously isn't taking his own advice when he says he has to take care of the ball and whatever coaching points are given to him during the week are going in one ear and out of the other. He's a 5th year pro playing worse than his rookie year. That's on him. There needs to be a come to Jesus moment with Wentz where he gets right. The Eagles can be competitive in every game they play when the QB is playing at a competent - forget high - level. Carson Wentz has shown all of us this year that his ceiling is still quite high at its peaks: the first game against the Giants on their last two drives. He's also shown his league-worst floor: SNF against Dallas. Long term and short term, Wentz must raise his floor. He doesn't need to be a hero and save the team from their sins each and every play like he seemingly tries to. FEW QBs CAN. And most don't. Steady play from him will go a long way. Right now, the coaches are calling an offensive game plan that is weak and scared of their QB. Why would they do anything different? How can anyone trust this guy not to continue to blow games? The fact is the Eagles will win this game with a clean game from their QB. It's just a crapshoot if he does.
Eagles Offensive Line vs. Giants Army of Defensive Tackles
The Giants have a really good group of interior defensive lineman and we would know since they kicked our ass in the first matchup this season. The Eagles were absent Isaac Seumalo and Brandon Brooks in that one and it showed. There is a possibility we'll have Seumalo back for this one and that would be a huge addition to an overmatched offensive line. I don't want to belittle the work of the Eagles backups and Jeff Stoutland especially since they've done an admiral job given all of the injuries; it's just undeniable the Eagles are overmatched in the trenches here, especially on the interior. Every healthy body helps. As we've seen with Wentz this year, he is a mess under pressure and navigating a muddy pocket. He'll still likely have these issues on Sunday but hopefully less so than the first matchup. The return of Seumalo and possibly Lane Johnson will also go a long way to helping the run game provide any sort of production for the offense. The Eagles prefer winning with their OL and DL; this year has been a struggle for the OL but not a complete disaster that we expected. We just need the talent to return in order to improve.
Eagles Weapons vs Giants Secondary
Perhaps I was more bearish on the Giants secondary outside of Bradberry in the first match up; I still don't think it is a very good unit, but the defensive side of the ball for the Giants is far from the biggest issue with this team. The Eagles will have Miles Sanders, Jalen Reagor, and Dallas Goedert for this game when all three were unavailable in the first contest. All three pair well with Giant-killer Boston Scott. The Eagles have enough weapons to really attack the Giants defense if they get quality play out of their QB. This Giants defense still struggles in coverage outside of Bradberry, especially in the middle of the field, which leads to a favorable outlook for Goedert. A functioning offense will take a lot of pressure off the defense and put the Eagles in the rare position of having a favorable game script.
Eagles Defensive Line vs Giants Offensive Line
This is always something to monitor for the Eagles as they only have one good cover guy on defense in Darius Slay. The Eagles struggle to match up against defenses in man coverage because they don't have the personnel to cover anyone other than Darius Slay. They struggle in zone as they don't have smart, instinctive players with awareness in zone. The LBs and Safeties are all bad in coverage. Competent offenses and QBs always expose this weakness for the Eagles and that won't change until the talent and coaching changes on the defense. This week the Eagles have another favorable matchup for their defense in Daniel Jones. Jones is a one read, timing QB, that struggles at the one thing he is supposed to be good at. Like Wentz, he is a turnover machine and holds his offense back mightily. The only difference between the two is Jones was at no point considered a top 10 QB. Even without Barkley and possibly Golden Tate, the Giants have more than enough weapons to cook the Eagles defense. Slay played a really good game in their first matchup locking down Slayton, but we saw Sterling Shepard obliterate Jalen Mills. Shepard is a good receiver, so it wasn't a high bar for him to clear in that matchup, but they can make you pay. The Eagles defensive MVP in that contest was Evan Engram; he had a tipped pass that led to an Eagles INT and a killer drop that likely would have ended the game, preventing the comeback. For all of the Giants struggles, the Eagles coverage unit simply doesn't offer enough resistance against the Giants weapons. It comes down to how much disruption the Eagles defensive line can cause, which is par for the course. The Giants offensive line has been an absolute mess this season but is coming off a great game against the Redskins vaunted defensive front. Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox continue to play at high levels. Josh Sweat has been pretty good this year. Derek Barnett is the same as usual. Lastly, Malik Jackson will return to the line up and he has been an under-the-radar stud for the Eagles this year. They also need to have their marquee free agent acquisition, Javon Hargrave, make an impact. They'll need all of these guys to play well to ensure they keep the Giants weapons in line since we know the Eagles secondary struggles stopping nosebleeds.

2020.10.30 20:46 Artist_In_Sweatpants Albert Fish was a good person

Hamilton Howard "Albert" Fish[1] (May 19, 1870 – January 16, 1936) was an American serial killer, child rapist and cannibal. He was also known as the Gray Man, the Werewolf of Wysteria, the Brooklyn Vampire, the Moon Maniac, and The Boogey Man.[2] Fish once boasted that he "had children in every state",[2] and at one time stated his number of victims was about 100. However, it is not known whether he was referring to rapes or cannibalization, nor is it known if the statement was truthful.[3]
Fish was a suspect in at least five murders during his lifetime. He confessed to three murders that police were able to trace to a known homicide, and he confessed to stabbing at least two other people. Fish was apprehended on December 13, 1934, and put on trial for the kidnapping and murder of Grace Budd. He was convicted and executed by electric chair on January 16, 1936, at the age of 65.[4][5][6] His crimes were dramatized in the 2007 film The Gray Man), starring Patrick Bauchau as Fish.


It was about this time that Fish began to indulge in self-harm. He would embed needles into his groin and abdomen.[11] After his arrest, X-rays revealed that Fish had at least 29 needles lodged in his pelvic region.[11] He also hit himself repeatedly with a nail-studded paddle and inserted wool doused with lighter fluid into his anus and set it alight.[18] While Fish was never thought to have physically attacked or abused his children, he did encourage them and their friends to paddle his buttocks with the same nail-studded paddle he used to abuse himself. He soon developed a growing obsession with cannibalism, often preparing himself a dinner consisting solely of raw meat and sometimes serving it to his children.

On May 25, 1928, Fish saw a classified advertisement in the Sunday edition of the New York World that read, "Young man, 18, wishes position in country. Edward Budd, 406 West 15th Street." On May 28, Fish, then 58 years old, visited the Budd family in Manhattan under the pretense of hiring Edward; he later confessed that he planned to tie Edward up, mutilate him, and leave him to bleed to death. Fish introduced himself as Frank Howard, a farmer from Farmingdale, New York. He promised to hire Budd and his friend Willie, and said he would send for them in a few days. Fish failed to show up, but he sent a telegram to the Budd family apologizing and set a later date.
When Fish returned, he met Edward's younger sister Grace Budd. He apparently changed his intended victim from Edward to Grace and quickly made up a story about having to attend his niece's birthday party. He convinced the parents, Delia Flanagan and Albert Budd I, to let Grace accompany him to the party that evening. The elder Albert Budd was a porter) for the United States Equitable Life Assurance Society. Grace had a younger sister, Beatrice, two older brothers, Edward and George, and a younger brother, Albert Budd II. Grace left with Fish that day but never returned.[27]
The police arrested 66-year-old superintendent Charles Edward Pope on September 5, 1930, as a suspect in Grace's disappearance, accused by Pope's estranged wife.[5] He spent 108 days in jail between his arrest and trial on December 22, 1930.[28] He was found not guilty.

Letter to the mother of Grace Budd

In November 1934, an anonymous letter was sent to Grace's parents which ultimately led the police to Fish. Mrs. Budd was illiterate and could not read the letter herself, so she had her son read it to her.[29] The unaltered letter (complete with Fish's misspellings and grammatical errors) reads:[11]
My dear Mrs Budd, In 1894 a friend of mine shipped as a deck hand on the steamer Tacoma, Capt John Davis. They sailed from San Francisco to Hong Kong China. On arriving there he and two others went ashore and got drunk. When they returned the boat was gone. At that time there was a famine in China. Meat of any kind was from $1 to 3 Dollars a pound. So great was the suffering among the very poor that all children under 12 were sold to the Butchers to be cut up and sold for food in order to keep others from starving. A boy or girl under 14 was not safe in the street. You could go in any shop and ask for steak – chops – or stew meat. Part of the naked body of a boy or girl would be brought out and just what you wanted cut from it. A boy or girls behind which is the sweetest part of the body and sold as veal cutlet brought the highest price. John staid there so long he acquired a taste for human flesh. On his return to N.Y. he stole two boys one 7 one 11. Took them to his home stripped them naked tied them in a closet then burned everything they had on. Several times every day and night he spanked them – tortured them – to make their meat good and tender. First he killed the 11 yr old boy, because he had the fattest ass and of course the most meat on it. Every part of his body was cooked and eaten except Head – bones and guts. He was roasted in the oven, (all of his ass) boiled, broiled, fried, stewed. The little boy was next, went the same way. At that time I was living at 409 E 100 St, rear – right side. He told me so often how good human flesh was I made up my mind to taste it. On Sunday June the 3 – 1928 I called on you at 406 W 15 St. Brought you pot cheese – strawberries. We had lunch. Grace sat in my lap and kissed me. I made up my mind to eat her, on the pretense of taking her to a party. You said Yes she could go. I took her to an empty house in Westchester I had already picked out. When we got there, I told her to remain outside. She picked wild flowers. I went upstairs and stripped all my clothes off. I knew if I did not I would get her blood on them. When all was ready I went to the window and called her. Then I hid in a closet until she was in the room. When she saw me all naked she began to cry and tried to run down stairs. I grabbed her and she said she would tell her mama. First I stripped her naked. How she did kick – bite and scratch. I choked her to death then cut her in small pieces so I could take my meat to my rooms, cook and eat it. How sweet and tender her little ass was roasted in the oven. It took me 9 days to eat her entire body. I did not fuck her, though, I could of had I wished. She died a virgin.
Albert Fish's trial for the murder of Grace Budd began on March 11, 1935, in White Plains, New York. Frederick P. Close presided as judge and Westchester County Chief Assistant District Attorney Elbert F. Gallagher was prosecuting attorney. Fish's defense counsel was James Dempsey, a former prosecutor and the one-time mayor of Peekskill, New York. The trial lasted for 10 days. Fish pleaded insanity, and claimed to have heard voices from God telling him to kill children. Several psychiatrists testified about Fish's sexual fetishes, which included sadism, masochism, flagellation, exhibitionism, voyeurism, piquerism, cannibalism, coprophagia, urophilia, hematolagnia, pedophilia, necrophilia, and infibulation. Dempsey in his summation noted that Fish was a "psychiatric phenomenon" and that nowhere in legal or medical records was there another individual who possessed so many sexual abnormalities.[10]
The defense's chief expert witness was Fredric Wertham, a psychiatrist with an emphasis on child development who conducted psychiatric examinations for the New York criminal courts. During two days of testimony, Wertham explained Fish's obsession with religion and specifically his preoccupation with the biblical story of Abraham and Isaac (Genesis 22:1–24). Wertham said that Fish believed that similarly "sacrificing" a boy would be penance for his own sins and that even if the act itself was wrong, angels would prevent it if God did not approve. Fish attempted the sacrifice once before but was thwarted when a car drove past. Edward Budd was the next intended victim, but he turned out to be larger than expected so he settled on Grace. Although he knew Grace was female, it is believed that Fish perceived her as a boy.[10] Wertham then detailed Fish's cannibalism, which in his mind he associated with communion. The last question Dempsey asked Wertham was 15,000 words long, detailed Fish's life and ended with asking how the doctor considered his mental condition based on this life. Wertham simply answered "He is insane".[10] Gallagher cross-examined Wertham on whether Fish knew the difference between right and wrong. He responded that he did know but that it was a perverted knowledge based on his opinions of sin, atonement and religion and thus was an "insane knowledge".[10] The defense called two more psychiatrists to support Wertham's findings.[39]
The first of four rebuttal witnesses was Menas Gregory, the former manager of the Bellevue psychiatric hospital, where Fish was treated during 1930. He testified that Fish was abnormal but sane. Under cross examination, Dempsey asked if coprophilia, urophilia and pedophilia indicated a sane or insane person. Gregory replied that such a person was not "mentally sick" and that these were common perversions that were "socially perfectly alright" and that Fish was "no different from millions of other people", some very prominent and successful, who suffered from the "very same" perversions. The next witness was the resident physician at The Tombs, Perry Lichtenstein. Dempsey objected to a doctor with no training in psychiatry testifying on the issue of sanity, but Justice Close overruled on the basis that the jury could decide what weight to give a prison doctor. When asked whether Fish's causing himself pain indicated a mental condition, Lichtenstein replied, "That is not masochism", as he was only "punishing himself to get sexual gratification". The next witness, Charles Lambert, testified that coprophilia was a common practice and that religious cannibalism may be psychopathic but "was a matter of taste" and not evidence of a psychosis. The last witness, James Vavasour, repeated Lambert's opinion.[10] Another defense witness was Mary Nicholas, Fish's 17-year-old stepdaughter. She described how Fish taught her and her brothers and sisters several games involving overtones of masochism and child molestation.[11]
None of the jurors doubted that Fish was insane, but ultimately, as one later explained, they felt he should be executed anyway.[10][40] They found him to be sane and guilty, and the judge ordered the death sentence. Fish arrived at prison in March 1935, and was executed on January 16, 1936, in the electric chair at Sing Sing. He entered the chamber at 11:06 p.m. and was pronounced dead three minutes later.[4] He was buried in the Sing Sing Prison Cemetery. Fish is said to have helped the executioner position the electrodes on his body. His last words were reportedly, "I don't even know why I'm here."[22] According to one witness present, it took two jolts before Fish died, creating the rumor that the apparatus was short-circuited by the needles that Fish inserted into his body.[34] These rumors were later regarded as untrue, as Fish reportedly died in the same fashion and time frame as others in the electric chair.[22]
At a meeting with reporters after the execution, Fish's lawyer James Dempsey revealed that he was in possession of his client's "final statement". This amounted to several pages of hand-written notes that Fish apparently penned in the hours just prior to his death. When pressed by the assembled journalists to reveal the document's contents, Dempsey refused, stating, "I will never show it to anyone. It was the most filthy string of obscenities that I have ever read."[22]

By 1880, Fish's mother had a government job and was able to remove Fish from the orphanage. In 1882, at age 12, he began a homosexual relationship with a telegraph boy. The youth introduced Fish to such practices as urolagnia (drinking urine) and coprophagia (eating feces). Fish began visiting public baths where he could watch other boys undress and spent a great portion of his weekends on these visits.[12] Throughout his life, he would write obscene letters to women whose names he acquired from classified advertising and matrimonial agencies.[10]

2020.10.29 11:30 theworldreviews Europe under siege by China and Russia

The spread of the Coronavirus has helped to reshuffle the cards on the international chessboard, with the European Union and its member states attacked by China and Russia, eager to wrest regional influences. These are the geopolitical consequences of COVID-19. A study of the Directorate-General for External Policies of the European Parliament at the request of the Foreign Affairs Committee603511_EN.pdf) revealed.
The situation is worse than we think. Foreign powers have taken advantage of the pandemic to their advantage. With transatlantic relations still made up of tensions and no longer solid alliances, the EU finds itself more isolated. There are not many alternatives: the European Union can choose to carve out a new role for itself. It can make an internal change or rekindle transatlantic relations.
In the East, the problems date back at least to the beginning of 2014, when Russia decided to annex Crimea. Since then, relations with Moscow have always kept to a minimum. During the pandemic, EU-Russia relations remained the same, not so good. Since COVID-19 began to spread, Russia has wasted no time. That is why Russia embarked on a disinformation campaign as soon as the pandemic started, targeting European countries.
The Belarusian crisis this summer brought a new element of hostility to Moscow’s anti-European policy. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned against foreign interference, effectively supporting Alexander Lukashenko, his long-time ally in power. At the same time, Russia’s activity in Libya also expanded. While Europeans were in lockdown, the Kremlin deployed 14 warplanes (May), and unrest in the area increased further during the summer.
Even before the arrival of the Coronavirus, relations between China and the European Union were a delicate balance of interests, especially economic ones. Beijing’s investments in Europe alone went from 1 billion euros in 2008 to 35 billion euros in 2016. Numbers that have led the EU to take a weak line on respect for human rights, unfair competition, fundamental freedoms. This already weak position has been made even more unstable following several developments related to the pandemic.
On the one hand, China’s aggressive attitude, which strongly rejects any accusation of responsibility for the spread of COVID-19, coupled with its dependence on the exposed supply chain, has led to a distinctly negative perception of China in Europe, affecting the choices of governments for reasons of public opinion.On the other hand, China had to manage this first. It was able to establish itself as the main international partner in times of need for the EU. The result? The country is now perceived as a friend. According to a survey, one in four Europeans think that China was the best ally during the pandemic.
Then there is the problem of Turkey, which has already put the EU in trouble in Libya. Europe is also under siege by new players appearing in Africa. The Nagorno-Karabakh crisis has flared up in recent months spent containing the virus, and the EU is unable to manage the conflict. The Commissioner for the Economy, Paolo Gentiloni, warned: “We could have a post-COVID world with more trade tensions and less multilateralism. Global coordination is not easy at the moment.”

2020.10.20 10:00 BlockDotCo Will there be a world where blockchain and GDPR peacefully co-exist?

Link to Finextra article: https://www.finextra.com/the-long-read/59/will-there-be-a-world-where-blockchain-and-gdpr-peacefully-co-exist
As we know, GDPR is new regulation. New regulation faces teething issues. This is an unavoidable reality. While many have claimed that blockchain is a solution in need of a problem, Covid-19 has proved a powerful springboard for a surge in blockchain based platforms, designed with the intention of solving pandemic induced problems.
This push for innovation grounded in blockchain technology has brought forward the need for clarification on a number of legal uncertainties in the space. Not least of which being fundamental conflicts between essential characteristics of blockchain technology and how that interacts with certain elements of the GDPR.
Both this regulation and this technology traverse new territories and it is only natural for areas of uncertainty to arise, but it is clear that for the sake of data analysts, engineers and developers, alongside lawyers, fintechs, financial institutions and every individual set to benefit from access to such technologies, prompt clarification on key areas is critical.
The release of Tech London Advocates and The Law Society’s report ‘Blockchain: Legal & Regulatory Guidance’ has hence been warmly received by players across the blockchain community.
As Anne Rose, co-lead of the report, Mishcon de Reya LLP, points out, the UK Jurisdiction Taskforce’s Public Consultation and subsequent Legal Statement on the status of cryptoassets and smart contracts under English law was previously the single existing formal legal statement in the UK in respect of distributed ledger technology (DLT)-related matters.
In true understated British fashion, the Rt Hon Sir Geoffrey Vos, Chancellor of the High Court aptly notes in the report’s Foreword, “Guidance in this area is in short supply.”
This piece looks to highlight three key recommendations made in the report which canvas definitional challenges surrounding ‘personal data’, how ‘erasure’ should be interpreted and what a data controller looks like in the blockchain context.
We have reached out to the ICO for clarification of these three key areas, however beyond informing us that the ICO’s Data Sharing Code is scheduled for launch next month, they did not wish to provide comment on their position.
Definition is the heart of the matter
Recommendation 1: What does ‘all means reasonably likely to be used’ mean under Recital 26 GDPR? Does this require an objective or subjective approach?
Perhaps a more relevant question to ask, is whether the ICO and other supervisory authorities will follow the Working Party’s (now European Data Protection Board) suggestion in Article 29 that a risk-based approach to the definition of personal data is not appropriate.
As we know, the GDPR applies to personal data and its definition in Article 4(1) is generally understood634445_EN.pdf) to be interpreted broadly. Yet, in circumstances where the categorisation of this data is unclear or may change in the future, we need to be able to determine whether the data should be defined as personal, pseudonymous or anonymous. This requires reading Article 4(5) GDPR and Recital 26&firstPage=true#co_anchor_a601872) GDPR together.
Recital 26 says that data is anonymous if it is ‘reasonably likely’ that it cannot be linked to an identified or identifiable natural person. This is the risk-based approach to assess whether or not certain information should be defined as ‘personal data’ and therefore will fall within the GDPR’s purview.
To date, the ICO has adopted a relativist understanding of Recital 26, which stresses “that the risk of re-identification through data linkage is essentially unpredictable because it can never be assessed with certainty what data is already available or what data may be released in the future.”
This consideration is particularly relevant in the context of blockchain technologies as it allows for the possibility that anonymisation can never be absolute.
Despite this the Working Party’s guidance seems to suggest that this risk-based approach is not appropriate and that “anonymisation results [only] from processing personal data in order to irreversibly prevent identification.” This absolute approach takes a strict stance toward the requirement for anonymisation of data, and as the report holds, does not allow for the possibility that anonymous data today may become personal data in the future (upon further data being acquired, allowing for the controller or another to identify the person).
It appears that there is a strong likelihood, as Dr Michèle Finck, senior research fellow, Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, outlines “that contrary to what has been maintained by some, perfect anonymisation is impossible and that the legal definition thereof needs to embrace the remaining risk.”
Comparing the two approaches, Dr Finck notes that “Further statements by various courts and supervisory authorities fall somewhere on the spectrum between both approaches, clearly highlighting the lack of consensus regarding the legal test to be applied, hence threatening the homogenous application of data protection law across the EU.”
Needless to say, it is difficult to see the full benefit or true intention of the GDPR come to fruition when agreement cannot be reached around certain fundamental principles – both in interpretation and in application.
Permanently impermanent
Recommendation 2: How should ‘erasure’ be interpreted for the purposes of Article 17 GDPR in the context of blockchain technology?
The Group argues that close attention to this recommendation is essential, as a core tenet of GDPR recognises a right to ‘erasure’ of personal data. As it stands, contention around the definition of ‘erasure’ is proving frustrating if not defeating for those wanting certainty around regulatory requirements for blockchain.
The GDPR does not currently indicate what ‘erasure’ requires, that is, whether a common-sense understanding of ‘erasure’ should apply and what precisely that would look like. Does ‘erasure’ equal the destruction of personal data or a private key? Is the ICO’s position to ‘put beyond use’ the data sufficient? It remains to be seen in case-law, however, regulatory guidance would undoubtedly be welcomed by blockchain and DLT communities.
Though it seems a straightforward premise, the very nature of blockchain presents a complex scenario for ‘erasure’ because blockchains are usually deliberately634445_EN.pdf) designed to render (unilateral) modification of data difficult or impossible.
The European Parliament report, ‘Can distributed ledgers be squared with European data protection law?’ explains that there is immense difficulty applying the right of ‘erasure’ to blockchain:
“Deleting data from DLT is burdensome as these networks are often purposefully designed to make the unilateral modification of data hard, which is in turn supposed to generate trust in the network by guaranteeing data integrity.”
Tied to the above queries regarding the definition of personal data, there are also fundamental challenges in the attempt to determine whether ‘erasure’ should be interpreted as anonymisation in the absolute sense (as seemingly recommended by the Working Party). Yet, as has already been raised, the reality that absolute anonymisation in the context of blockchain is likely, leads to the uncomfortable conclusion that personal data can only ever be pseudonymised.
Pseudonymous data in this sense relates to personal data which can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information. Anonymous data on the other hand is data which cannot be attributed to a specific data subject, including with the application of additional information.
Every data controller needs purpose
Recommendation 3: Can a data subject be a data controller in relation to personal data that relates to them?
The question of the data controller’s purpose must also be addressed when considering the definition of personal data. The Working Party emphasises that “to argue that individuals are not identifiable, where the purpose of processing is precisely to identify them, would be a sheer contradiction in terms.”
The report refers to a decision by the French supervisory authority (the CNIL) which found that Google’s accumulation of data, enabling it to individually identify persons using personal data, is “[the] sole objective pursued by the company to gather a maximum of details about individualised persons in an effort to boost the value of their profiles for advertising purposes.”
The right to erasure in the GDPR has certain exceptions, such as in cases where the processing of this personal data is still necessary for the performance of a contract.
In its 2019 study634445_EN.pdf), the European Parliament states that when determining who is a data controller for blockchain-enabled processing of personal data, the purpose and means of data processing in the specific use case must be considered, along with the governance design of the specific blockchain.
The study underscores the lack of consensus as to who should be considered the data controller in the context of blockchain-enabled processing, but provides a number634445_EN.pdf) of possible actors which may qualify.
Notably, the study reads that “a recent European Parliament report embraces the same view in suggesting that users ‘may be both data controllers, for the personal data that they upload to the ledger, and data processors, by virtue of storing a full copy of the ledger on their own computer.’” It continues that accordingly, there is broad consensus that DLT users will in at least some circumstances be considered as data controllers under the GDPR.
In the report however, Rose calls for guidance on the topic, noting that “the lack of consensus as to how (joint-) controllership ought to be defined, and how it impacts upon accepted (or even contested) meanings within GDPR, hampers the allocation of responsibility and accountability.”
Privacy by design
If it is the case634445_EN.pdf) that consensus can’t be achieved about blockchains being either all compatible or incompatible with European data protection law, how do we go about building on blockchain innovation?
The Europarl report634445_EN.pdf) observes that “where much of the debate has focused on the tensions between blockchains and European data protection law, the former may also provide means to comply with the objectives of the latter.”
That is to say, while the technical idiosyncrasies of blockchain are difficult to reconcile with GDPR, if blockchain can be architected with a view to compliance with data protection law, then perhaps compliance by design is the best solution available. Further, the lack of legal certainty regarding achieving compliance with blockchain technology and indeed other technologies underscores the conceptual uncertainties inherent within GDPR itself.
The report adds that there is currently no legal certainty for developers who wish to handle public keys in a GDPR-compliant manner. How is this impacting innovation? When there appears to be only risk for individuals pursing such innovation, we can’t expect to see ground-breaking developments.
Where do we stand today?
In a Q&A following the release of the European Commission’s Digital Finance package in September, the Commission noted that it remains vigilant about ensuring consumers remain in charge of their data. The Commission also underscores that compliance with data protection rules, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a prerequisite for a financial sector driven by data.
Also explaining that crypto-assets are digital representations of values or rights, which can be transferred and stored electronically using specific technology (known as distributed ledger technology), the Commission states that crypto-assets are inextricably linked to blockchains, as they are the blocks that make up the chains themselves.
The Commission’s pilot regime for market infrastructures that trade and settle transactions in financial instruments in crypto-asset form is therefore a significant step. Importantly, the Commission also observes weak legislative areas and hope to propose some related amendments where current legislation presents clear issues to the application of distributed ledger technology in market infrastructure.
In the text of the package itself, the Commission says it will pay particular attention to “due compliance with data protection rules, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation.”
Ideally, this pilot will yield further clarity on the conceptual challenges sooner than waiting for appropriate case law to trickle through. As flagged earlier in the piece, it is also hoped that the ICO’s Data Sharing Code, scheduled for launch next month (November 2020), will provide clarification across some of these complex issues.
Alongside work being carried out related to Data Sharing Code, the ICO’s Regulatory Sandbox for 2020-2021 is targeting innovations related to data sharing particularly in the areas of health, central government and finance (among others). Developers focused on products or services which are likely to enable substantial public benefits but may involve the use of innovative data governance frameworks or data sharing platforms, or involve the processing of sensitive personal data are encouraged to apply.

2020.10.19 21:57 NRMacellar The Planet That Came To Little Hunsruck

(This is the first of three parts of a journal dating back to the year 1910. Upon transcribing it, I have decided that it would be appropriate to post it to this subreddit.)
Undoubtedly, the seclusion of the wooded and mountainous regions of our United States foster countless strange happenings, spawning strange fancies of dreadful beasts, degenerative inhabitants, and the infamous horrors which occur with their brushings with civilization. And many of these accounts—I say with the surety of my own extensive inquest—surface to similar ends, sharing more attributes as they generate, and ultimately result in high tales which are largely indistinguishable, and are, ironically, received broadly as untrue in their sameness rather than to be offered reinforcement in their repetition. Regarding such stories, one is only as doubtless as the other, rendering them all to a collectively passive state; I realize this fully. However, though this account of mine begins one such remote place of the common romanticism, and lightly grazes many of the elements which identify it as such, make no mistake—I intend not to tell merely of that which occurred in Little Hunsruck, Tennessee, nor anything which occurred elsewhere upon the earth at all, but of that which occurred upon a different planet entirely. And to visit such a place as that is akin to death itself—for in doing so, one is wholly apart from all that which he was born into without any assurance of return, and whatever world or state of being lies beyond this veil of life must certainly abide by these same indomitable principles.
I must preface by stating that, during this time, my occupation was that of an investigative journalist employed by a private firm whose name I will not disclose here for the sanctity of its honorable reputation. I must also delineate the exact nature of our investigations; we were, in all matters, thorough and shrewd in our conclusions, but chiefly our goal was to maintain a respectable impression upon our clientele and the law alike, which meant in simpler terms that our policy was not to overstep our boundaries and take our investigation beyond invitation. Hot-headed freelancers often, of course, elevated themselves to more insightful angles and reported twice as much as we ever could upon certain cases, but in doing this, their integrity was jointly brought into question and left us little competition. The simple fact is that—unless there is some underlying vendetta—most people would much rather have their accounts reported, and their names printed in the papers for a week of relative fame than allow total strangers to seriously question the validity of their claims and invade their privacy in the way that only bad popularity could incur.
For our distinguished etiquette, we seldom needed to rigorously search for a new case. We first received letters from our readers in Baltimore, where we were based, and with the accrual of additional publishers, we were delivered cases from as far as Boston to Charlotte. When, within the urban centers of this sphere of contact, telephone wires became prominent, we were quick to set up open calls, which bolstered our efficiency greatly. No longer were the majority of cases stretched across days and weeks of waiting and filing but recorded very swiftly and exhaustively with as much as a single ring from within our own offices. Though we were bombarded with as much mail as ever, an executive decision was made to process calls over letters, and a great deal of our staff was transferred from mail sorting to calling services. This caused our inbox to go as much as several months without having been adequately perused before new hires were settled to tackle the job. The firm was becoming busier much more quickly than any of us had ever anticipated.
Meanwhile, Bell’s web of wires was being rapidly woven across suburbia, and there was scarcely a single corporate entity left that was not fitted with a line. Those calls which were affiliated with businesses, as you may well imagine, were considered the utmost priority, and were answered not only post-haste, but trusted unto only the senior journalists who were well-established in their deportment. I was one such senior journalist.
One sunny Autumn day, my secretary greeted me with a call from a certain business owner based outside Hot Springs, North Carolina, which I was very surprised to hear, as yet we had not received word from any callers as far as the southern edge of Appalachia. Naturally, I was very eager to speak to the man and discover who he was.
Over the wire, I learned his name—Mr. Hewitt, I shall call him for the sake of his anonymity, as that is not his real name—and I learned that he was the owner of a general store which stood at the foot of the mountains, just by a road which led across the state border. Though he was well-spoken, Mr. Hewitt’s case was a confused one, as it was almost entirely secondhanded. He spoke to me of a certain neighbor of his—one he referred to as Otto Winkler—upon whose behalf he had initiated contact, as he was the only person in about a mile radius to actually possess a telephone. Mr. Winkler had, allegedly, already sent a great number of letters to the firm indicating the details of his particular case, to which I apologized profusely for the unflattering state of our mailroom, appointing my secretary at once to search our queues for the appropriate name.
While we waited for my secretary to return, I questioned Mr. Hewitt further upon the matter and his own understanding of it. Apparently, Mr. Hewitt himself was rather unacquainted with the firm, familiar only with our presence in the columns of the various newspapers and magazines which he peddled at his store. Of Mr. Winkler’s case, he knew little more; he seemed reluctant to recount exactly what Mr. Winkler had told him, as if the very things would come across as unbecoming to a conversation between two gentlemen of high employment, encouraging me repeatedly that Mr. Winkler could explain it all more accurately and fully than he ever could, urging me to read the letters, as that was Mr. Winkler’s emphasis to him. There was one solitary fact that he could convey to me about Mr. Winkler’s plight, and it was that Mr. Winkler believed—without even the slightest doubt—that he would go missing ere the week was out.
If this information had not startled me, then the sight of the letters which my secretary soon retrieved from the mailroom did so. I was initially stunned that we had received nearly a dozen letters from the same name and address without notice, but this was of little importance to me when I actually opened the letters. There was very little text written in any of them, and what was scribbled there was nearly illegible; the poor spelling betrayed a severe lack of formal education, and amid them was a queer prevalence of those uniquely German alphabetical figures, as if written habitually. The sender, however, could not have been wholly unlearned—in fact, the letters were filled with all manner of sketches, the precision and detail of which pointed quite to the contrary. Opening one letter after the other, I glimpsed everything ranging from quaint, comely mountaintop vistas and woodland scenes to bizarre star-charts and medieval zodiacs—I hardly knew where to begin with any of them.
I think that Mr. Hewitt, still on the other end of the line, heard my gasps of shock, and surmised at once what sort of strange scrawlings sprang forth from those envelopes. It was his turn to apologize, now; he informed me at once that Mr. Winkler did not know how to write in full English—as, evidently, he could not—and whatever he had drawn in those letters was his own eccentric way of proving the validity of his quandary. I still had very little idea of what that quandary was at the time, though then I suspected only some acute madness plagued Mr. Winkler, and I was halfway between deciding that this case should be submitted to authorities forthright, or that it should be dismissed entirely. Mr. Hewitt, still one step ahead of me in our conversation, assured me that I would find Mr. Winkler to be a far cry from a March Hare; he also assured me that Mr. Winkler himself was well aware of the sort of impression his case may have upon law enforcement or any other investigators, for which reason he made the careful decision to seek out the firm instead.
For a long moment, I stood against the wall, telephone slung over my shoulder and cycling through one letter after the other, gazing at them with minimal attention as the sudden situation churned within my mind. These letters were, undoubtedly, the drivel of someone quite intelligent, albeit clearly mad. The shaded nature of the whole cases both repelled and intrigued me, but I knew better than to weigh my instincts against each other without accounting for the facts of the matter. The only fact in this matter which I knew to be true, was that Mr. Hewitt’s general store was the farthest carrier of our articles from our base in Baltimore. If this case was not responded to attentively, then who else thereabouts would bother to host the firm? The most important thing to me then was to establish that our respectable services were not above rural businesses, and to that end, I agreed to speak to Mr. Winkler personally and in-depth concerning his case.
I regretted my agreement just as soon as I had voiced it, however. For when I broached the notion of scheduling an appointment for Mr. Winkler to call us at the firm, Mr. Hewitt swiftly refused, saying that Mr. Winkler’s tongue was as equally infected with German as his writing and that he would be nearly unintelligible to hear over a wire as long as this. Furthermore, Mr. Winkler was adamant that he showed us certain things in person, as there could be no real proof of the matter unless he did so. Here, I believe, I let my curiosity overtake my professional discipline, inwardly making passable excuses for myself as I asked for the time and location suitable for meeting Mr. Winkler. That I should meet Mr. Winkler at the address for Mr. Hewitt’s general store as soon as possible was the answer that he gave me, and with that, he hung up.
I was very much staggered by the abruptness of it all, but as I had already opened a case and given my word to follow it through, I decided that, at the very least, I should go down to Mr. Hewitt’s general store, regardless of how little may come of it. I notified my supervisor of my errand, and he, trusting me well enough with my seniority, lent me one of the firm’s automobiles, raising few questions at all. I stuffed my suitcase with only a road map, my certifications, and the letters from Mr. Winkler, not giving them a second glance.
That same morning, I drove out of Baltimore. The trip was somewhat tedious for me, as my daily mode for transportation to and from the firm had always been the trolley, and not only had several long years passed since an investigation had actually summoned me out of my office, but never had I traveled so far, and on my own at that. I dreaded the thought of explaining the utter confusion of this case to my secretary and fellow journalists, and for that reason, I left them with only as many words as I had imparted my supervisor, and I did not even think to invite any of them to accompany me. My anxiety was ever-present, but it wavered from my own inexperience behind the wheel of a car to the relative unfamiliarity of these new places which I found myself elapsing, and then unto the strangeness of this case and the abundant tales of feuds and peril which I had heard so often attributed to the ranges of New England—many of which were transcribed by journalists of our own firm. I hoped that, somehow, we had not upheld our reputable policy in that regard, and that the degeneracy of the mountain-folk was a mere exaggeration.
The highway took me from Washington to Richmond, to Raleigh, to Asheville, and finally to Hot Springs. During this trip, I stopped just a few times, only long enough to reassess directions, or to refuel, or to satiate myself. It was rather late in the day when I arrived at Mr. Hewitt’s general store, though there was still as much as an hour left before the daylight waned. I was quite surprised to discover how lonely and diminutive the store was. Glossy windows shimmered beneath the shade of a wide porch which wrapped around a corner of it, its cabin-like construction and puffing chimney making it seem like it was a wax-shielded illustration straight out of a dime-store frontier novel before which two rugged duelists would face one another with grim anticipation. Though the road was long and empty, it had become increasingly rough around its sides since departing from Asheville, and here between the ruts and the trees, I could not determine any better space to leave the automobile right squarely in front of the general store. I felt more confident in this decision as I stepped out of it, as only then I realized just how desolate that place was.
A soft breeze tickled the beige, low-hanging boughs of the chestnut trees, and a little bird-chirping echoed deliberately through the otherwise noiseless air. The dust still rose up in great congestive clouds from the warm tires of the automobile. In the relative openness of this place, I also stole my first glimpse of the Great Smoky Mountains, for the roads that pass through such uneven places are wont to follow the contours of the smoothest stretches, which are almost always converse to the steeper elevation and rife with towering woodland upon both sides. The Smokies loomed high over Hewitt’s general store, seeming themselves to look down upon me in the expectation of my arrival. Collecting myself, I shook the numbness out of my limbs from the long drive, cleared my throat, and proceeded up the porch steps into the store.
As promptly as I shut the door behind me, the miasmatic scent of strange candies and spices stung my nostrils, and my vision was temporarily overwhelmed with a melted scene of still life. There was scarcely a wall or part of the floor unoccupied by shelves, and there was scarcely a shelf unoccupied by buckets of produce, or sacks of flour, or bottles of whiskey, or any sort of implement of cutlery or trinket of value. Even as I stood there and soaked in the space and all its bazaar-like antiquity, it was long ere I plucked up the nerve to stretch myself out between these shelves and make my way to the other side of the room, careful not to hit my head upon the low roof-beams or to shove against any precarious object in there. It was at the very end of the store that I located the counter, which was just as overflowing with things as the rest of the store was, yet it was strikingly vacant. As I stood there, dazed and stumped at where next I should search for Mr. Hewitt, my attention fell upon that same telephone which he had used to call the firm—hanging just there on the wall and encircled by a pinioned catalogs—and I knew that surely, I was in the right place.
Shortly thereafter, I noticed a rack of newspapers which stood not far away, and immediately I drifted over to it, curious to discern just how much of what was published were my own articles. It was amid this thoughtless browsing that Mr. Hewitt finally revealed himself; he strolled casually out from some other cluttered corner of the store, greeted me with no greater recognition of my person than of any other customer that might have come in and asked what it was that I was looking for. At once, I introduced myself as the senior investigative journalist which he had spoken to on the telephone earlier, to which he responded that he had nearly forgotten, even as our earlier conversation had only taken place mere hours ago.
He was a hoarier, milder man than I had expected, and he was not at all very enthusiastic, nor even urgent about my coming. He very simply offered me a stool to sit on while we waited for Mr. Winkler to arrive as well. I took my seat, and then pressed him with the numerous inquiries about Mr. Winkler which had surfaced in my mind during the long and nervous drive from Baltimore, attempting to determine his perspective in this case, but still, he was overall dismissive, saying only that he carried out the favor of ringing the firm out of a mere sense of neighborly duty, and that earlier that day he had informed Mr. Winkler that I was on my way and that he should come down to check on my presence later that afternoon. Mr. Hewitt was obviously very old and weary and had no desire to be interrogated further, so, according to the policy of the firm, I dropped the topic and reserved my questions for Mr. Winkler.
Perhaps it was by mere coincidence, or perhaps it was by the calculated estimation of Mr. Hewitt, but I did not sit in silence upon that bench for more than a quarter of an hour before I heard the fall of heavy boot-heels upon the dry planks of the store porch. The door swung wide open and in stepped a man who I could only initially correlate to the word giant.
The man was well-nigh seven feet in height, and his hefty shoulders were half as broad. And upon each of them slumped great, lumpy stacks of pelts, so freshly skinned from animal flesh that some little flecks of fat were still present upon the fringes, and the odor was undeniable. In spite of the man’s bulkiness and the weightiness of the pelts upon him, he quite deftly maneuvered through the shelves of the general store, striding over to the counter with a memorized gait and throwing down the pelts with a huff of satisfaction. Mr. Hewitt bundled up the pelts and, amid some idle chatter, assured the man that once he had examined the pelts and stored them in his coldbox, he would return with a bill of his approximate earnings. Still, I sat on the bench, quite ignored by either of them for a moment until Mr. Hewitt, having disappeared to elsewhere, called back to the man saying that I was here to speak to him about the elfin moon.
I was as equally dumbfounded to hear the words elfin moon as I was to realize that this hulking Goliath of a man was, indeed, Mr. Otto Winkler. He seemed to be about middle-aged; his beard was as black as the bear pelts which he brought inside, and there were more hairs upon his face than naked skin. His plaid shirt and denim overalls were well worn with many years and spotted with patches—I presumed then that it was quite difficult for a man of his stature to possess a very extensive wardrobe. And he wore a strange, scarlet, conical hat upon his head, the brim of which drooped around his ears and was split in places with slight mishandling. His eyes were the most striking—they were ringed like tree stumps with their many ashy wrinkles, and within their whites jittered two wild spheres of fire, which darted all about in keen and constant surveillance. Yet there was the hearth-like warmth of friendliness in these flames when Mr. Winkler looked upon me, and even calmness in them as well. I could not, with all my imagination, correlate this personage to being the same madman which mailed nearly a dozen cryptic letters to the firm, nor could I conceive of someone as grand and imposing as he going missing anytime soon. Mr. Winkler laughed a great, hearty, heavily-accented laugh, and took my hand to shake before I had even extended it to him.
Half-German gibberish flowed out of his black-toothed mouth far too rapidly for me to understand all that which he initially told me. Evidently, he was quite pleased with my coming. I nodded and grunted in accord with his every other sentence until, gradually, I came to understand most of what he was telling me. Though his accent was somewhat foreign, it was also jointly infused with a familiar, though exacerbated southern drawl. Upon recognizing it, I found his speech considerably more coherent. He spoke both urgently and vaguely of the things which he must show me, but queerly made no mention anything pertaining to the bizarre sketches included in his letters, nor of the suspicious elfin moon which Mr. Hewitt had referenced passingly. He pointed at the newspapers, speaking excitedly of the articles authored by members of the firm and his reading of them—or rather, his attempted readings of them, to which old Mr. Hewitt assisted him when it was necessary. For long, Mr. Winkler lauded me and the firm for the thoroughness of our various investigations, still shaking my hand without letting go until Mr. Hewitt at last returned with his bill of earnings. Mr. Winkler accepted it and, cramming into the pocket of his overalls without so much as glancing over it, beckoned energetically to me to follow him outside. Befuddled, but curious, I arose and stalked after him.
Emerging at last from the maze of shelves, I strode back out onto the porch of the general store. The world seemed much different now than it was when I had entered the store, as the sky was already dimly lavender with the onset of evening. For some reason, I expected that whatever it was that Mr. Winkler meant to show me had been brought there with him and was waiting for me just outside. However, all that met me then was a mule, standing restfully with a simple rein tied to one of the porch-posts. The back of the mule was bare, though I figured at once that it had carried the pelts most of the way here. I finally spoke up, asking Mr. Winkler what, precisely, was it that he wished me to witness. Quite bluntly, he told me that the objects of interest were at his home on the top of the mountain and that he would take me there; I could even ride his mule, Gertruda, if I liked, as the path thereunto was occasionally very steep.
I gazed again upon the immense, imposing shape of the Smoky ranges, rendered hazy by the late sun rays which chiseled their pointed peaks, inwardly measuring the safety of such a height, and questioning the company of such a curious man as Mr. Winkler. I had, however, unwittingly come too far to decline. Reluctantly, I acquiesced, making a note to mind my every step henceforth with exceptional caution, and to keep a keen eye upon my guide, lest he reveals himself to be one among those treacherous mountain-folk who so infamously feign cordiality only to lure gullible men to their graves. Neither Mr. Hewitt nor Mr. Winkler had so much as acknowledged the automobile which remained dormant in the middle of the road, so, neither did I give it a second thought, and I agreed to mount the mule. Mr. Winkler helped me climb up onto it, and then we set off into the trees beyond the general store.
I was led farther and farther into these woods in a fashion which was, I think, quite similar to Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem—everywhere the little steed took me, flimsy fan-like boughs of scarlet leaves passed underfoot, and the air was ever astir with the ceaseless praises of my presence, though these were uttered still by none other than broad-breasted Mr. Winkler, who bellowed and guffawed now with the potency and volume of a whole score of men. Even as we went, the woods appeared to have become older and more glorious. Fewer were the spear-like saplings which pierced through the earth, and more prevalent were the great shaggy firs and the moss-clad roots of maples, studded with silvery mushroom caps and drops of congealed sap. The evening effulgence suited the depths of these woods exceptionally well, I say, for it gilded the birches and accentuating the shadowy creases of gnarled and naked oaks. As the elevation inclined, so too did stony clefts and great boulders surface from the ground, multiplying the wildness of our paths through the trees, compelling us to turn one way or the other at every other step, so that our route was anything but straightforward. I was struck by a sensation of dizziness—a dizziness very similar to that which I had just earlier experienced in Mr. Hewitt’s general store.
Once Mr. Winkler’s excessive laud had dwindled, I remarked on the dramatic difference in our environs. He told me then that the mountain which we ascended was known as Mount Brandt, one of three peaks which comprised the little region he called Little Hunsruck. I had not remembered seeing such names upon my roadmap, but I thought then that perhaps it was alternatively named, or perhaps it was so remote or trifling that it was left without a name at all. I broached this conundrum to Mr. Winkler, hoping that he was familiar with other official names for the place. But all that he could tell me was that Little Hunsruck, though registered as a county in Tennessee, it, in fact, also overlapped the North Carolinian border, occupying the whole circumference of Mount Brandt, ending at the very foot with the partial skirts of a lesser national forest. Mount Brandt, he went on to assure me, was much smaller than it seemed, achieving this illusion of scale only by its sharp acclivity.
Soon thereafter, Mr. Winkler notified me of a secluded little graveyard that lay ahead of us. He warned me that, beyond it, I should be very careful only to step wherever his feet fell, or to otherwise stay mounted upon the mule—for from that point onward, all the way unto the very summit of Mount Brandt, the land was his own property, and he had rigged every other stump and roost with spring-jawed foothold traps in ways only he knew, and it would most certainly bode ill for me to wander astray. Of course, I had prior deduced that Mr. Winkler was a fur trapper by vocation upon his bombastic entry into Mr. Hewitt’s general store, but he went on to elucidate that his work was not always the patient, effortless, hidden-behind-a-bush sort. The local wildlife had been well initiated in distinguishing traps, no matter how latent or scentless they were, so the trick was to terrify the beasts, upsetting them so that they became transiently careless, and chasing them until they inevitably misstepped and trapped themselves. He owned a couple of hounds which often joined him in his hunts, yapping and bounding in such a suddenly startling way that urged even the fattest bears and boar to retreat. But in the dense places where the traps were more numerous—and therefore posed an obstacle to the hounds themselves—he usually refrained from unleashing them, relying only upon the weight of his boots and the pitch of his practiced rebel yell. As if to banish any unvoiced skepticism I may have had for this claim, Mr. Winkler readily demonstrated his own rebel yell, whooping war-like with a cry that echoed back down the declivity of the mountain, perfectly terrifying more than the few crows I observed fleeing from the branches overhead.
Thoroughly rattled by this sound, and nearly every other enunciation Mr. Winkler had produced up to this point, I attempted to sway our idle chatter back to priority, asking him again about the elfin moon and the nature of the things which he intended to show me. But at that moment, we, at last, approached the graveyard, the sight of which snuffed out the new conversation before it even began. We passed now through an arched, iron-bar gate with brick-and-mortar pillars—the likes of which could only belong to a cemetery.
Here, though the busy verdure was scarcer, and the air was quieter without the rustling of the leaves, I was struck with the unexpected impression of partial freshness, and even a degree of sophistication. Gazing out across the rows of headstones that snaked over the hilly stretches of the graveyard, I recognized very old dates upon very new markers, many of which exceeded the simple-cut slabs of inexpensive burials. Headstones intricately carved in a pronouncedly Gothic-revivalist style met my gaze wherever I turned, and such was the quality of tiny mausoleums and shrines that crested the hills, all with sloping roofs and statues and crosses prominently embellished within them. There was, however, an exception to be found in the form of the parish building, which was contrastingly wooden and green-shingled with age, and was architecturally as spartan as a log longhouse fitted with a meager steeple.
After just a short time in this cemetery, already my mind had conjured up an array of familiar scenarios which I was confident would prove to be identical to that of Mr. Winkler’s yet undisclosed quandary. Surely, the ghosties of bygone decades would rise from their graves this coming Hallowe’en, summoned to roam beyond the black bars of their cemetery confines by the cycle of this elfin moon, ravenous for some poor living soul to drag back down with them into Hades ere the break of day—or some fireside tale of that effect. I took note of the numerous rebel battle-flags emblazoned upon the headstones, together with mentions of rank and regiment, most all falling beneath the Nineteenth Infantry and McKenzie’s Cavalry, revitalizing in my thoughts the rebel cry of Mr. Winkler together with exasperated phantoms who had now traded their ghostly sheets for uniforms of butternut, their spectral bayonets flashing translucent amid a smoke-filled sky. Half-caustically, but half-genuinely, I asked Mr. Winkler if the cemetery was haunted and whether its sleeping souls looked kindly upon a Maryland Yankee being led prince-like through their hallowed ground.
Strangely somber in tone, as if there was nothing silly about what I had proposed at all, Mr. Winkler informed me that, broadly speaking, here lay the remains of a baptized Mennonite congregation, who had only peace and goodwill toward all folk and surely had not an inkling of spite, even if somehow their spirits were still stuck between hither and Heaven. A fair portion of the graves—those with headstones chiseled with star-spangled Saint Andrew’s crosses and hewn in the gothic style—had been set atop vacant earth, for these marked the fallen Germans who had wished that their memory be preserved beside the resting place of their captain in life, a certain old Marse Van Brandt, who, like many of them, had never even resided in Little Hunsruck. Mr. Winkler pointed out a monument as we drew near to it, which was larger than the rest and shaped peculiarly like a bell-tower with an arch for each cardinal direction. And beneath its peaked roof stood the shadowy image of a proud and decorated gallant, hairy chin lifted high and hands rested readily upon a saber hilt—this, Mr. Winkler said, was the grave of Marse Van Brandt. His daughters had, in accordance with his will, buried him in the soil of his Palatine-blooded forefathers and signed for proper shrines to be composed for those kinship compatriots who fell during the war.
Apparently, Mr. Winkler’s grandfather lay here as well—not only as a son of Little Hunsruck but as an officer of Marse Van Brandt’s command, making him the only other German confederate who was actually buried here. Mr. Winkler himself had ties to them both, as Marse Van Brandt was, in fact, his great-uncle on his mother’s side; however, his noble lineage did not start there. Mr. Winkler’s great-great-grandfather was one of those feisty dragoons who rode with Washington at Yorktown and, unlike his Mennonite neighbors, his blood derived from a ferocious race of Catholic landsknechts who fled to the New World not from conflict, but from a lack of coin in the antiquation of mercenary work. When Mr. Winkler came before of the statue of Marse Van Brandt, he removed his scarlet hat from his scalp and pressed it against his chest; perhaps this gesture was enacted was out of reverence for his noble ancestry, or perhaps it was a thinly-veiled attempt to display to me the presence of his noble ancestry still living within him—a nobility which, I could not deny, was indeed undiminished in his features. Now that his head was rid of its slovenly shade, I saw through the grime and bristles of his cheeks to behold a dignified countenance which greatly resembled that of the statue before him, like some Launcelot turned woodwose, who had—innate within his blood—all the potency of his forefathers.
A moment of silence passed. Finally, this Appalachian Odysseus donned his scarlet hat, immediately transforming back into the simple peasant that he was before, and he led the mule and I out of the cemetery. I had, to an extent, expected that whatever it was that he meant to show me was somewhere in that graveyard, but upon realizing that was not the case, I had grown increasingly inclined to once more demand that he explain his reason for bringing me all the way out there. However, the realization dawned on me that, perhaps Mr. Winkler—that same fellow who had sent nearly a dozen letters to the firm, and whose desperation had prompted Mr. Hewitt to ring us—actually had very little interest in presenting his case to me then.
Perhaps business was secondary to hospitality in the culture of these sorts of places, or perhaps he was shy to speak of it so openly; perhaps this was nothing more than a contrived opportunity to meet one of the journalists responsible for the articles in the newspapers which had evidently held his exhaustive fancy. To boot, something about the reflective serenity of the cemetery and the quaintly nostalgic glow of the mountainside forest sedated my haste, relenting at last to the pace which Mr. Winkler set for us, and I grew content with dwelling only on the country pleasance of that evening—at least for the time being.
Mr. Winkler continued to talk, all the way up the spiraling path unto the very summit of Mount Brandt. We passed by places which were distinguishable only to him, where he would often gasp with recollection before proceeding to regale me with the notable encounters which he had with various beasts that either escaped him or nearly did so. Before long, his talk became interwoven with tales of jackalopes, drudes, faefolk, and Feldgeisters, which at first I presumed to be spoken of in jest or in expression, for with the darkening of the day his tonality grew drowsier and more drawn-out, rendering his disposition difficult to read. But after a while of listening, it became clear to me that Mr. Winkler truly did believe in such things; they were as real to him as the animals which he caught and skinned, and as existent in the remote ranges of Appalachia as they had thought to have been in the Palatine ranges on the other side of the globe. Indeed, the world in which Mr. Winkler lived was that of ancient mountain-folk magic, largely unblemished by the same harsh adherence to reality that was imposed upon the world of modern civilization—a world of modern civilization which had, like me, never heard of any elfin moon.

2020.10.13 02:29 kyngggg 100k giveaway - Le Vagin is not male! As inspired by Emily in Paris 🇫🇷

“Why is the vagina masculine?”… “Maybe it’s because it’s something a woman owns an a man possesses.”

✨MY MOODBOARD✨

My moodboard is inspired by the new Netflix show Emily in Paris. When Emily posted “the vagina is not male!” as a marketing tagline, I knew I was hooked! (Referencing how the vagina is a male pronoun in French). While it’s mostly tongue in cheek humour, I feel it sends a stronger message. Society may still be defined by some chauvinistic ideas, but it should not hold us back from unapologetically being ourselves. The subtle undertone of the show exuded girl power, with many alpha roles dominated by women. And obviously, if you haven’t watched the show, the fashion is reason enough! My moodpboard is inspired by outfits from the show, being just a little bit of extra, with colours, textures and prints.

I love how Emily always dressed as she wanted, borrowing elements from Parisian fashion, and never letting people tell her how to dress. It kinda hit home, when I was younger my mother would always yell at my sister and I for dressing over the top, telling us that we’ll look like clowns and men will laugh at us for dressing as such, we’ll never find husbands blah blah blah. Thank god it never stuck, and we still dress the way we love today. My sister has a coat in the exact same hot pink shade that Emily wore in the show (no surprise, mama hates that coat!) and of course, it has to be featured in this mood board.

I tried to make this moodboard as “shoppable” as possible, and the clothes in the moodboard are the actual clothes from the taobao listings, and at pocket friendly prices because I’m a slut for cheap TB stuff, plus bonus mod shots of some of the items which I’ve bought before! I didn’t link some items as I’m sure these are easily sourced from your favourite TS for bags/shoes/earrings.


✏️ MINI REVIEW

Item - Chanel WOC in Burgundy Caviar with LGHW
Seller - TS Redden
Factory - CC/CD Factory
Price - About 110 USD

My Pictures Modshots
I love this bag so much! I’ve always been a small bag girl, I realise I always subconsciously reach for the bags which are small and handsfree, where it’s so light I forget I’m wearing the bag. I’ve learnt to downsize my life, and generally all I carry in this bag is some cash, keys, ID, tissues and occasionally a phone power bank.

What I Like: Initially I bought a WOC because I felt I just needed one in my collection, it was on sale and at that price point, it was a steal. It’s a beautiful colour, and dark enough to easily match with most colours. Stye wise, it's actually a lot more versatile than I thought, it can be worn crossbody, or the chain can be doubled up for a shorter drop, or to give it more detail to the bag (first photo in the album of my pics), and it can be hand carried or used as a clutch!

What I Don't Like: When the bag first came the chains were squeaky AF! Not so much a factory/rep problem, as it happens in auth a lot too. However, in my experience, CC/CD’s bags generally come with squeaky chains. Two easy fixes I’ve personally tried and have worked are leather conditioner, and baby powder. The only thing that is slightly annoying with this bag would be the button closure, the magnetic one would definitely be more convenient.

Would I recommend?: If you like to pack your kitchen sink every time you step out of the house, then this is not the bag for you. Otherwise, if you're a small bag girl, yes, definitely!

2020.10.12 22:33 mismoosie 100K Giveaway – =CÂTS•THÊTICS=~~ and Three Feline Flex L😻😻ks

This mood board is lovingly inspired by my family’s generational wealth love of cats. Since we Cat Ladies™ are as diverse as the cats we've come to share space with, I present to you several options of how to rock that CATSHETIC no matter your age or the situation.
The three boards center around the LV Speedy 30 B in White Catogram, all are serving Cat Lady realness.
First, the Mini-Review:
= ^ LOOK ONE ^ = ~~
This first mood board is for those Fearless Felines Females who are climbing the ladder. Wear this look to rep the professional Cat Lady lifestyle. From the pussy bow shirt and subtle print on the pants, to the to the kitten heeled shoes and unobtrusive pattern on the dress, there are in-the-know nods to other Cat Ladies so you can find one another on the street like an adorable stray, but not enough to raise alarm bells with your boss who has allergies or thinks cats caused the plague. Use the featured bag to carry the essentials: day planner, lint roller, extra treats. This look says "That's MS. Crazy Cat Lady, thanks."
= ^ LOOK TWO ^ = ~~
All work and no play...not with this campy bag! This mood board is for those errand-filled weekends picking up urinary tract health prescription food, volunteering at the shelter, or going on a date with a fellow animal lover, this look has you covered. Mask up top, fun lingerie surprise below. This bag can hold all you need to have a full night/weekend of experiences to come home and tell your cats about.
= ^ LOOK THREE^ = ~~
Last but not least...a full mood board look for those snuggly cat owner days when the biggest item on the to-do list is going to the mailbox to grab the Chewy.com order. No worries - all the other mail can fit easily in your Catogram Speedy, and the cross-body strap allows you to carry 40 pounds of litter with BOTH hands. You could even bring the little fluffer with you in the kangaroo pouch of the sweatshirt. Or, let's be realistic- leave them on the cozy throw, leaning against the pillow, so they can watch you struggle, then meow that dinner is late.

2020.10.06 21:54 spire88 YSK: According to the USDA & FDA, the date printed on food labels is NOT an "expiration" date.

Why YSK: There seems to be confusion around dates on packages in the states. According to the USDA & FDA, the date printed on food labels is NOT an "expiration" date.
This leads to a tremendous amount of unnecessary food waste because consumers think it's a magic date that makes their food go bad so they throw perfectly good food—out, unopened, only to be trapped in plastic in a landfill.
What the dates mean:
If we take time to educate ourselves about these dates we can save money, time, feed more people, and keep our landfills free of food. Collectively we can make great change in multiple ways. At the very least, if there is not a another use (feeding others, making stock, feeding animals), we need to be composting. Food "waste" is a nutrient "resource". Think of how nature works without humans on the planet. Plant and animal matter are never wasted in natural systems.
Food waste is not just about wasting food. It's about wasting the resources that went in to making that food: all the land, time, effort, labor, inputs like water, fertilizer, harvesting, processing, packaging, fuel, shipping/transportation, storage, grocery shelf time, money.
All for 1/3 of all those things to go into a landfill? How long does it take to grow a tree that bears fruit?
Most Date Labels Are Not Based on Exact Sciencehttps://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/confused-date-labels-packaged-foods
One in seven households with children in America are food-insecure, and do not know where their next meal is going to come from, as are over 41 million people in America.
Americans waste some 40% of all edible food, according to the National Resources Defense Council. Tossing food before its time is literally throwing money into the garbage. The average American household spends over $2,000 per year on wasted food.
Americans Waste $240 Billion in Food Each Yearhttps://www.usnews.com/news/healthiest-communities/articles/2020-01-23/americans-waste-240-billion-in-food-each-year-study-says
Why? Many people mistakenly believe that they should adhere closely to printed dates on food packaging. Americans dump 33 million tons of food into landfills each year. A typical family in the U.S. throws out 14% to 25% ( sometimes 50%) of the food they buy.
Anything that came from nature needs to go back to the soil. One teaspoon of healthy soil contains more microbes than there are people on the planet.
Those microbes are like trillions of microbes in our gut that enable our bodies to function properly. Both the microbes in our body and in our soil need a diversity of nutrients from different foods so they are enabled to choose what they need to do their jobs and thrive. Plants would be healthier, our air would be cleaner, we'd have less drought and get more carbon in the soil. The benefits of reducing food waste and using it as a resource are immeasurable.
Healthy Soil Microbes, Healthy People - The AtlanticThere can be 10,000 to 50,000 species in less than a teaspoon of soil. In that same teaspoon of soil, there are more microbes than there are people on the earth. In a handful of healthy soil, there is more biodiversity in just the bacterial community than you will find in all the animals of the Amazon basin.https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archiveIn Today's Landfills, Food Is Embalmed for Decades at a Timehttps://www.vice.com/en_us/article/aeyxxz/in-todays-landfills-food-is-embalmed-for-decades-at-a-time
Food going bad is organic matter that needs to go back to the soil to feed the billions of hungry micro-organisms per one teaspoon of healthy soil. Not get trapped in a plastic bag in a landfill.
How To Compost At Homehttps://www.npr.org/2020/04/07/828918397/how-to-compost-at-home
Did you know? We've been able to feed ten billion people since 2010. We DO grow enough food to feed the world. The problems are profit driven and political issues that prevent food from getting to those in need.
We Already Grow Enough Food for 10 Billion People (2010)

Did you cook? You can save all your vegetable scraps in a freezer bag to make soup stock (vegetarian or meat based)? Onion and garlic skins and roots, carrot tops, parsley stems and roots, celery scraps, potato peels, carrot peels, more [keep brassicas separate for their own stock]. Freeze them and when you get enough, make your stock. Strain, then compost the solids.
Save Your Vegetable Scraps, Make Stock/Broth

Do you grow an abundance of food or have fruit trees that produce more than you know what to do with? See if there is a gleaning program where trained people will "glean/harvest" the produce and get it to organizations that feed those who are going hungry. Here is a good example of an excellent gleaning program with resources to other areas of the country. Consider starting one on a small scale where you are.
Most people don't know that grocery stores and restaurants are protected from lawsuits if they donate food to food pantries and organizations that fight hunger
The Good Samaritan Act was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996, yet it’s still a common misconception among the public and those in the food industry that a company can be liable if a recipient of donated food becomes sick after receiving the product. That’s why we’ve spelled out the specifics of the the protections offered to food businesses under the law...Learn more: http://blog.spoileralert.com/liability-protection-for-food-donations
Just Eat It
(a funny documentary that proves you can eat very well with food that is wasted) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BR1Y-ieyfjU
Filmmakers and food lovers, Jen and Grant, dive into the issue of food waste and pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food for 6 months. How hard is it to find food? Are they eating out of dumpsters, or do they find more than they bargained for?
All of us eat food.
Each of us can prevent food waste.
Food 'waste' is an organic matter resource for our hungry soil.
