2020.11.23 20:12 Santarini Is there a term for the continuity error that occurs when a show references another show but later shares a cast member with the show it referenced?

Examples I’ve recently noticed
Friends: Ross, Joey, and Chandler watch Die Hard together. Bruce Willis makes a guest appearance as Ross’ Girlfriend’s dad.
Entourage: Turtle dates Jamie-Lynn Sigler who plays Meadow Soprano in The Sopranos. Turtle also dates Alex who is played by Dania Ramirez who also played Blanca Selgado in The Sopranos.
Suits: Mike Ross and Katrina Bennet say “sheeeeeeet” referencing The Wire. Rachel Zane’s father Robert Zane is played by Wendell Pierce who also played as Bunk in The Wire.

2020.11.15 01:34 Yularen2077 List of All US Presidents: Part 1 - USA and MacArthur Coup

Ever wonder who all the possible Presidents of the US are? Looking for an up to date guide? Well look no further!
Below you can find a list (with KRTL occupations, or if I could not find it, OTL), and portraits/bios, of all possible US Presidents for the USA and for a MacArthur Coup.
I plan on doing a few other posts for the CSA, AUS, New England, and the Pacific States as well. I thought one huge post might be too much. Links to all of them will be at the bottom of each.
I don’t think there is anything like this, current that is, so I thought why not make one myself?
There was a post I found from three years ago but, while dated, is cool to see the difference from then to now. There was one post I could not find that was all text which listed all the presidents from all the 2ACW factions in one big post, and it continued into the comments. If it is still out there and anyone can link it that would be great! (OP posted it in the comments, you can find it here.)

1936

1936 Election
1936 starts off with Republican Herbert Hoover as President. But he is extremely unpopular, having been controversially elected by the House of Representatives in 1932 for a second term.
There are two paths for this election, which will once again go to the House to elect a winner:

1 - Coalition Formed During the Campaign. Be mindful that in events during the campaign, if you side too much with one side, the Coalition may fall apart:
Floyd Olson – National Unity Party (Farmer-Labor), Governor of Minnesota.
Huey Long, ‘The Kingfish’ – American First Union Party, Senator from Louisiana.
John ‘Jack’ Reed – Socialist Party of America, Senator from New York.

2 - No Coalition Formed During the Campaign or it fell apart:
Alf Landon – Republican Party, Governor of Kansas
John Nance Garner, ‘Cactus Jack, – Democratic Party (Conservative), Speaker of the House
Huey Long, ‘The Kingfish, – American First Union Party, Senator from Louisiana.
John ‘Jack’ Reed – Socialist Party of America, Senator from New York.
Note about re-election. An incumbent President will automatically become the party’s nominee for that election year, being able to serve as President for a maximum of two terms (election cycles). What you see below are the candidates who are not incumbents, so for example Landon is not a candidate in 1940 normally, only if he was elected in 1936.
If the Coalition was formed and Olson elected, after the war, its objective fulfilled, it will dissolve and the Republicans, Democrats, and Farmer-Labor will run as their own parties in the upcoming elections. President Olson will die before the election, and VP Roosevelt will become President. The Farmer-Labor party and its candidates will only be available as candidates if Olson won.

1940

1940 Election
Henry Wallace – Farmer-Labor, Secretary of Agriculture under Olson
Quinten Roosevelt – Republican Party, Senator from New York. If Vice-President under Olson, incumbent President
John Nance Garner, ‘Cactus Jack, – Democratic Party (Conservative), former Speaker of the House
Douglas MacArthur – Democratic Party (Conservative), General and Chief of Staff of the US Army. Must not be in jail due to a peaceful annexation of the Pacific States.
Harry F. Byrd – Democratic Party (Conservative), Senator from Virginia
Wendell Willkie – Democratic Party (Moderate), CEO

1944

1944 Election
Philip La Follette – Farmer-Labor (OTL Governor of Wisconsin)
Henry Wallace – Farmer-Labor, Secretary of Agriculture under Olson
Quinten Roosevelt – Republican Party, Senator from New York. Vice-President and later President under Olson
Thomas Dewey – Republican Party, Governor of New York
Richard Russel Jr. – Democratic Party (Conservative), Senator from Georgia
Alben W. Barkley – Democratic Party (Moderate), Representative from Kentucky
James E. Murray – Democratic Party (Moderate), Senator from Montana (Born in Canada)

1948

1948 Election
The 1948 election will see the Democratic party split and for this and the succeeding elections have two primaries with both primary winners running separately for president. There is one for the moderate wing and one for the conservative wing.
Philip La Follette – Farmer-Labor (OTL Governor of Wisconsin)
Glen H. Taylor – Farmer-Labor, Congressman from Idaho
Earl Warren – Republican Party, Governor of California. Only available if the Pacific States do not exist as he would be California.
Thomas Dewey – Republican Party, Governor of New York
Charles L. McNary – Republican Party, (OTL Senator from Oregon)
Harry Truman – Democratic Party (Moderate), Senator from Missouri
W. Averell Harriman – Democratic Party (Moderate), Investment Banker
Strom Thurmond – Democratic Party (Conservative), Senator from South Carolina
Albert ‘Happy’ Chandler – Democratic Party (Conservative), Senator from Kentucky
Note that in the code there is another candidate, a Quinten Roosevelt II for the Republicans. But the code is missing a part so he does not show up as a candidate (even after adding in the missing line). But he has a portrait so I made up a portrait box for him.
Also note that Harriman has a different portrait than he does as a candidate in the New England election1937 Provisional Election. Earl Warren is also is a possible candidate as a Progressive in the 1940 and 1944 PSA Elections.

1952

1952 Election
Philip La Follette – Farmer-Labor (OTL Governor of Wisconsin)
Glen H. Taylor – Farmer-Labor, Congressman from Idaho
John Bricker – Republican Party, Governor of Ohio
Harold Stassen – Republican Party, Governor of Minnesota
Dwight D. Eisenhower – Democratic Party (Moderate), General
Adlai Stevenson – Democratic Party (Moderate), Governor of Illinois
John Sparkman – Democratic Party (Conservative), Senator from Alabama
James Eastland – Democratic Party (Conservative), Senator from Mississippi

Coup


MacArthur Coup
If Long or Reed was elected, or if Landon/GarneOlson sides too much with Long or Reed, General and Chief of Staff of the US Army Douglas MacArthur will coup the government and establish a junta. After winning the civil war, MacArthur has to decide what to do with his power:
1 Douglas MacArthur stays power, the American Caesar route. No elections will be held and MacArthur will stay as President.
2 MacArthur concedes power (think a Cincinnatus route). He suggests to Congress three names who will become Provisional President. After one year a normal presidential election will be held, after which normal presidential elections will be held every four years.:
Quinten Roosevelt – Republican Party, Senator from New York
John Nance Garner, ‘Cactus Jack, – Democratic Party (Conservative), Speaker of the House
Wendell Willkie, – Democratic Party (Moderate), CEO
---
Part 1 - The US and MacArthur Coup Part 2 - AUS and Commonwealth Part 3 - CSA and Butler Coup Part 4 - PSA Part 5 - New England Bonus - Hawaii Bonus - Puerto Rico
---
That's all for the US. Look out for the next part tomorrow, the AUS. Hope you liked it, Thank You!

2020.11.09 14:52 ZandrickEllison [OC] The Overly-Long and Probably-Wrong list of the Top Draft Prospects

As a basketball fan, it's always fun to speculate on the NBA Draft prospects. That said, I'd stress the speculate part of that statement. As an outsider with no real access to these players, it's hard to be arrogant and steadfast in our opinions. We're working with about 10% as much information as actual NBA teams. If you feel confident in your analysis based on some highlight tapes of James Wiseman dunking on South Carolina State or LaMelo Ball jacking up shots in the Australian League, god bless you. And if you want to read my amateur analysis, god bless you too. But before you do, remember to check your sodium levels and take these picks with a grain of salt.
BEST PROSPECTS in the 2019-20 NBA DRAFT
(1) SG Anthony Edwards, Georgia
Based on pure stats, Anthony Edwards would be one of the least impressive # 1 picks of all time. We're talking about a player who just averaged 19-5-3 on bad shooting splits (40-29-77) on a bad Georgia team. In fact, the Bulldogs didn't even crack .500 (finishing 16-16). All things considered, this isn't the resume of a top overall pick. It's like a kid with a 2.9 GPA applying to Harvard Law.
Still, the "eye test" helps Edwards' case in the same way it helped proud Harvard alum Elle Woods. Edwards has a powerful frame (strong and long with a 6'9" wingspan) and a scorer's mentality. He's going to be a handful for NBA wings to contend with, especially when he's going downhill. And while he hasn't shown to be a knockdown shooter, his form looks better than the results suggest. I'd project that he can become an average (35-36%) three-point shooter in time.
It may be unfair to label Edwards with the "best case scenario" comparison -- Dwyane Wade, for example -- but it may be just as unfair to liken him to "worst case scenario" comps like Dion Waiters as well. One of the reasons that Waiters is such an inefficient scorer in the NBA is that he's allergic to the free-throw line; he averages 3.1 FTA per 36 minutes. Edwards didn't live at the FT line, but he did get there 5.3 times per game. With more encouragement from an analytical front office or coaching staff, Edwards has the potential to get to the line 7-8 times a game and raise his ceiling in terms of efficiency.
The key for Edwards' career is going to be his work ethic and basketball character. As a prospect, he reminds me of Donovan Mitchell; in fact, he's ahead of where Mitchell was at the same age. That said, Mitchell is a natural leader who made a concerted effort to improve his body and his overall game. If Edwards can do the same, he has true All-Star potential. If he walks into the building thinking he's already a superstar, then he may never become one.

Anthony Edwards has some bust potential, but he also has true star potential. Given that, it'd be great to see him go to a team that's willing to feature him. Chances are he won't last this long, but he'd be a great fit for Charlotte (#3). The Hornets desperately need a signature star, and Edwards has the chance to be a 20 PPG scorer within a year or two.
worst fits
If Edwards falls in the draft, he may end up clashing with the talent on the teams in the 4-5 range. Chicago (#4) already has a scoring guard in Zach LaVine. Meanwhile, Cleveland (#5) has already doubled up on scoring guards with Collin Sexton and Darius Garland. Adding a third would be a potential headache, both offensively and defensively.
(2) C James Wiseman, Memphis
A true center? Gross! What is this, 1970?
Traditional big men tend to get treated that way these days. In some ways, they've become the "running backs" of the NBA. They once ruled the draft, but now they have to scrape and claw to climb into the top 5.
Still, let's no go overboard here. Even if centers aren't as valuable as they used to be, there's still some value here. Some of the best centers in the game (Nikola Jokic, Rudy Gobert, Joel Embiid, etc) have helped make their teams staples in the playoffs. Wiseman can potentially impact a team in the same way, especially on the defensive end. He can get beat on switches now and then, but he's about as agile as you can expect out of a kid who's 7'1" with a 7'6" wingspan. Offensively, he has an improving face-up game in addition to being a devastating lob threat.
Another reason that I'm comfortable with Wiseman in the top 3 is because he appears to be a smart kid with the will to improve his game. He intends to keep stretching out his range towards three point territory. Even if he can be a passable three-point shooter (in the 33% range), that should help make him a consistent 18-12 player and a fringe All-Star. And if not, then he'll still be a viable starting center.
best fits
We mentioned Charlotte (#3) as a great fit for Anthony Edwards, and I'd say the same for Wiseman here. His game complements the more dynamic P.J. Washington well; between the two of them, they'd have the 4-5 spot locked up for years. While Wiseman's best chance to be a star may come in Charlotte, we don't know if he truly has that type of aggressive upside. The more likely scenario is him being a pretty good starting center with an emphasis on defense. In that case, he makes some sense in Golden State (#2) and Atlanta (#6).
worst fits
Apparently James Wiseman doesn't want to go to Minnesota (#1), which makes sense given the presence of Karl-Anthony Towns. If he slips, Chicago (#4) may also be an odd fit. Wiseman is a better prospect than Wendell Carter Jr., but they're not terribly dissimilar. The new Bulls administration didn't select Carter, but it still feels too early to give up on a recent # 7 pick.
(3) PF/C Onyeka Okongwu, USC (HIGHER than most expert rankings)
Another big man? I may be showing my age here.
Still, I'm going to stick to my guns and suggest Onyeka Okongwu is a top 3 prospect in the class for some of the same reasons we ranked James Wiseman so highly. In fact, Okongwu is arguably an even better defensive prospect than Wiseman. While he doesn't have the same size (6'9" with a 7'1" wingspan), he's more switchable. He projects as a prowling, shot-blocking panther, not dissimilar to Bam Adebayo on Miami. Offensively, he flashes some solid skill here and there, although it's unlikely he'd get to Adebayo's level as a playmaker.
Another aspect that should help Okongwu is his selflessness. In high school, he played for Chino Hills alongside stars Lonzo and LaMelo Ball. While there, he blended in and did the dirty work for the LaVar Traveling Circus. It's likely that Okongwu will play a similar role in the NBA, complementing a star perimeter player.
While Okongwu may not have All-Star upside, I don't see much downside here. I'd be surprised if he's not a long-time starter at the center position (with the potential to play some PF if his shooting range improves.)
best fits
The most natural fits for Onyeka Okongwu mirror the best fits for James Wiseman. There’s a chance he may slip further than Wiseman too. Washington (#9) should be salivating if that’s the case.
worst fits
As a low-usage player, there aren't a lot of terrible fits for Okongwu on the board. However, Detroit (#7) already has Blake Griffin on a long-term deal and may re-sign Christian Wood as well. Given that, there wouldn't be much room for Okongwu barring a Griffin trade.
(4) PG LaMelo Ball, U.S./Australia. (LOWER than most expect rankings)
Every draft pick is an inherent gamble, but there's a difference between gambling in blackjack and gambling in Roulette. To me, LaMelo Ball is more of the latter.
No doubt, there's a chance that you may get lucky and "win big" with LaMelo Ball. He has great height for the position at 6'6"/6'7", and he makes some exceptional passes that illustrate a rare court vision. ESPN's Draft Express team ranks him as the # 1 prospect overall, and I take that seriously. Those guys were way ahead of the curve on calling Luka Doncic a transcendent talent at a time when most others were still skeptical.
At the same time, I'd say there is a sizable downside here as well. In fact, I'd estimate that there's a greater than 50/50 chance that Ball is a "bust" based on his current draft status.
LaMelo Ball put up good raw numbers this past season in the NBL -- 17.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 6.8 assists -- but he was in a situation specifically designed for him to put up good numbers. The efficiency tells a different story, as his shooting splits (38-25-72) look worrisome. Yes, height helps on defense, but it doesn't matter much if you're not locked in on that end. And yes, highlight-reel passes and super-deep threes are fun to watch, but they're not a path to consistency on offense. As Ball makes the jump to the NBA, he may smack hard into a wall and crash into the water like was on Wipeout. There's a chance he'll be among the worst players (from an advanced stats perspective) as a rookie.
So what? We expect most rookies to struggle, right? That's true, but I'd be nervous about how LaMelo Ball and his camp would respond to those initial struggles. Again, I've never met the kid and have no real basis for this, but media interviews make him seem a little immature. That's totally understandable for a 19 year old, but it's not ideal for a 19 year old who's about to get handed the keys to an NBA franchise. If he struggles out of the gates, will he start to lose confidence? Will LaVar Ball start to make waves? Will the media gleefully tear him to shreds? No clue. And if I'm picking in the top 3, I'd prefer to have more confidence than question marks.
best fits
If we treat LaMelo Ball as a developmental project, then I'd prefer he land with a team like Chicago (#4). New coach Billy Donovan is a former PG himself, and spent decades working with young kids at the college level. If they slow play Ball's development, we may see the best of him down the road. Detroit (#7) also makes sense. Coach Dwane Casey has a pretty good reputation in player development himself, and he has a solid bridge PG in Derrick Rose to help buy Ball some time.
worst fits
Cleveland (#5) is an obviously wonky fit based on the current roster. I'd also assert that Charlotte (#3) is a poor fit as well. While the team desperately needs a signature star, they don't have the type of supporting cast that would be conducive to him right now. And if he struggles as a rookie, then coach James Borrego and the whole front office may be cleaned out. If that happens, a new administration would be inheriting a franchise player that they didn't pick in the first place.
(5) SF/PF Deni Avdija, Israel
The NBA tends to be reactionary when it comes to the draft, which can be particularly impactful for international prospects. Their stock tends to swing up and down more violently than a ride at Action Park. There was a ton of skepticism about Euros when Dirk Nowitzki came along. When he hit, the NBA got so excited they drafted Darko Milicic at # 2. Eventually that excitement wore off as the busts started to pile up again. But when Latvian Kristaps Porzingis looked like the real deal, it helped reverse that narrative and helped Dragan Bender go # 4 the following year.
In terms of that up-and-down timing, Deni Avdija stands to benefit. He's coming into the NBA on the heels of an incredible sophomore campaign from Luka Doncic. No one thinks that Avdija can be a superstar like Doncic, but teams aren't as wary of international wings (specifically white wings) these days. Avdija should go somewhere in the top 10 if not the top 5.
In my mind, that's justified. He's 6'9", which should allow him to play either the SF or PF positions. He hasn't shown to be an excellent shooter yet, but he should eventually be solid there. He's better suited as a playmaker and passer, and he can also use his size and skill to convert on slashes around the rim. I've seen some comparisons to Lamar Odom before, although that may be optimistic. More likely, he'll be a 4th or 5th starter. His experience as a pro should help toward that end, as he's used to working hard and fitting in on a team of vets.
best fits
If you project Deni Avdija to just "fit in" and be a solid starter, then he'd make sense on a team like Golden State (#2). He could effectively play the role of Harrison Barnes or old Andre Iguodala for them. If the intention is to make him more of a featured player, then the Knicks (#8) would be interesting. In that market, he has real star potential.
worst fits
I don't love the fit for Avdija in Charlotte (#3), where he may duplicate some of P.J. Washington's talents. Atlanta (#6) and Phoenix (#10) have also invested in young SF-PFs recently, so Avdija may find himself scraping for time there.
(6) SG/SF Devin Vassell, Florida State (HIGHER than most expert rankings)
Every single NBA team needs 3+D wings. They thirst for them like a dying man in the desert. And then, when a legitimate 3+D wing comes along, they often ignore them in favor of splashier players at other positions.
Part of the issue is that low-usage 3+D wings aren't going to put up monster stats. That's certainly true of Devin Vassell, who averaged a modest 12.7 points this past year. Still, you have to go deeper than the pure numbers alone and consider the context. Florida State had a stacked and balanced team. In fact, Vassell's 12.7 PPG was the highest on the roster (and came in only 28.8 minutes.) There's more in the tank here than we've seen so far. He can hit the three (42% and 42% from deep in his two years), and he shows a good feel for the game (2:1 assist/turnover ratio.)
Vassell shows even more potential on the defensive end. He's currently listed at 6'7" with a 6'10" wingspan, but he looks even longer than that to my eye. He's tenacious and disruptive (1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks) without being out of control. Presumably, he should be a good defender at either the SG or SF spot.
In a sense, Vassell's the prototype for a 3+D wing. To be fair, I don't anticipate him being a great shooter at the next level. His FT% was iffy, and he's apparently been tweaking his shot during the draft process. Still, if he can be a viable shooting threat in the way that Josh Richardson is (an inconsistent shooter who averages around 36%), then he should be a solid starter for an NBA team. That may not sound like something worthy of a top 5 pick, but the high "floor" helps him in this case. He also appears to have a strong character and work ethic, making him feel like an even safer bet.
best fits
Devin Vassell's skill set would fit on virtually any NBA roster -- but his perceived lack of upside may keep him from going as high as my personal ranking. If he does, then Cleveland (#5) would be a nice fit given their lack of big wings and their lack of defense. Defensive-challenged Washington (#9) would also make sense; Vassell tends to be listed as a SG but he should have enough size to play the SF for them.
worst fits
You can never have too many 3+D wings, but it may be a duplication to put Devin Vassell on the same team with Mikal Bridges in Phoenix (#10).
(7) PG Tyrese Haliburton, Iowa State
One of the reasons I'd have to be specific about a fit with a player like LaMelo Ball is that he needs the ball in his hands to maximize his potential. That's true for most lead guards.
Given that, it's a nice change of pace to see a prospect like Tyrese Haliburton come along. He's listed as a PG and he can perform those duties. This past season, he averaged 15.2 points and 6.5 assists per game. But he ALSO can operate as an off-the-ball player. As a freshman, he did exactly that, effectively working as a wing player and a glue guy on offense. His three-point shot looks wonky, but he converted 43% as a freshman and 42% as a sophomore. If that translates, he can be an effective spacer as well.
Haliburton's versatility also extends to the defensive end. He's 6'5" with an incredible 7'0" wingspan, allowing him to guard either PG or SGs. Like Devin Vassell, he also puts those tools to good use. Either one is an incredible athlete, but they're disruptive and locked in on that end. I'd expect Haliburton to be one of the better guard defenders in the NBA.
All in all, you may ask: why isn't this guy ranked HIGHER? The skill set would justify that. At the end of the day I don't see elite upside here (maybe George Hill?) because he may have some trouble getting his shot off in a halfcourt offense. Still, he's one of the safer prospects overall and a kid that you'd feel good betting on.
best fits
The New York Knicks (#8) may bring in a big-name guard like Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook, but if they stick with the rebuild then Tyrese Haliburton makes loads of sense. He can share playmaking duties with R.J. Barrett, and he can help Tom Thibodeau establish a defensive culture. He'd also make sense for Detroit (#7) and even Atlanta (#6). While the Hawks have Trae Young locked in at PG, Haliburton can play enough SG to justify 30+ overall minutes.
worst fits
Obviously any team that doesn't have room for a PG OR SG would be a problem here. Cleveland (#5) and Washington (#9) are the clearest examples of that. While Haliburton could theoretically guard some SFs, it's not the best use of his talent.
(8) PG Killian Hayes, France
If NBA centers are like NFL running backs, then point guards / lead playmakers may be like quarterbacks. There's positive and negatives to that comparison. Obviously, a good lead guard can immediately boost your team. At the same time, you don't really need more than one. And if you're not "the guy," then your impact is going to be limited.
Given that, there's a high bar to being a starting PG in the NBA. You have to be really, really friggin' good. According to many experts, Killian Hayes is exactly that. Physically he's what you want in the position, with a 6'5" frame. He averaged 16.8 points and 7.8 assists per 36 playing in Germany this year for a team that had a few former pros like Zoran Dragic. The Ringer has him # 1 overall.
Personally, I haven't completely bought into that hype yet. I can't claim to have season tickets to Ratiopharm Ulm, but when I watch highlights I don't really see ELITE traits here. He's not incredibly explosive, he's not a great shooter, he's over-reliant on his left hand. I have no doubt that he has the upside to be a good starter, but I don't think we've seen enough (or at least, I haven't) to make me confident in that projection.
best fits
Chicago (#4) and Detroit (#7) appear to be the most obvious fits for a potential star guard like Killian Hayes. And while the Knicks may have been underwhelmed by a French PG before, he would make sense for them at #8 as well.
worst fits
Teams with lead guards locked in -- Golden State (#2), Cleveland (#5), for example -- would be obviously problematic fits for Hayes. While he has the size to play some shooting guard defensively, he has a ways to go before he's a sharpshooting spacer.
(9) SG/SF Aaron Nesmith, Vanderbilt (HIGHER than most expert rankings)
Back when I was single, I dated a girl who presumably viewed me as a "developmental prospect." She'd always tell me how cool I'd look if I got some new jeans. How hot I'd be if I lost some weight. After a while, reality set in. It ain't happening, honey. What you see is what you get. The whole transformation idea may have worked with Chris Pratt, but it's not going to work with schlubby ol' Zandrick Ellison.
Sometimes it feels like NBA teams view prospects in the same delusional way. Josh Jackson can be a superstar -- if he develops his shot! Isaac Okoro can be a great pick -- if he becomes a great shooter! IF IF IF. We tend to forget that it's not that easy for a leopard to change his spots or for a player to suddenly develop a shooting stroke. It may have worked with Kawhi Leonard, but it's not working with most players.
Given that, we should value players who already have developed that skill. Aaron Nesmith is one of the best shooters in the draft -- right here, right now. He shot 52% from three and 83% from the line this past season. There's a sample size issue there (he only played 14 games prior to injury), but his shooting form looks fluid and suggests that he should be a legitimate 38-40% shooter from deep. While Nesmith isn't a great athlete or defender, his 7'0" wingspan should help him hang at either the SG or SF spots. All in all, we're talking about a player who should be a starter, or at the very least a high-level rotational player.
best fits
Aaron Nesmith isn't going to put a team on his back, but he can help carry the load offensively given his shooting ability. That should make him a good fit for a team like New Orleans (#13) as they look to replace J.J. Redick down the road. He'd also be an excellent fit with Orlando (#16) as they eye more shooters/scorers.
worst fits
It's hard to find a bad fit for a good shooting wing, but there are a few teams that may not have starting positions available. Phoenix (#10) already has Devin Booker and a few solid young SFs. Sacramento (#12) already has Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic (presuming they retain them.)
(10) PG/SG R.J. Hampton, U.S/N.Z. (HIGHER than most expert rankings)
After that rant about delusions of grandeur with development prospects, let me try and talk you into a raw developmental prospect.
Like LaMelo Ball, R.J. Hampton went to play in the NBL during his gap year after high school. They were both top 10 prospects going in, but their stocks diverged from there. LaMelo Ball put up big numbers and locked himself into top 3 status. Hampton didn't showcase much (8.8 points per game on 41-30-68 shooting splits) and may drop out of the lottery altogether. But again, I'd caution us to consider context here. LaMelo Ball went to a bad team where he could jack up shots. Hampton played on a contending team that didn't spoon-feed him minutes.
Given that limited sample, I'm falling back on the "eye test" here. No doubt, Hampton's shot is a problem. He's a poor shooter now, and it may be 2-3 years before he straightens it out. At the same time, his size and explosion jumps out at you, particularly when he's attacking the basket. He also appears to be a mature and charismatic young man. That combo -- physical talent + basketball character -- tends to be a winning formula. There's some chance Hampton turns out to be a genuine star as a scoring lead guard. There's also a sizable chance he busts. Still, it's the type of gamble that teams in the late lottery should be considering.
best fits
In a PG-rich class, it'd be bold for Detroit (#8) to reach on R.J. Hampton. Still, he would fit there, as the team could groom him behind Derrick Rose for another year or two until he's ready to take over for major minutes. Any team that can afford him the luxury of patience would be a nice landing spot, even if it means going later in the draft to places like Boston (#14, #26) or Utah (#23.)
worst fits
I'd be less bullish on R.J. Hampton in situations where he may have to play early and take his lumps. The N.Y. Knicks (#8) have struggled to develop point guards Frank Ntilkina and Dennis Smith already, and a new coaching staff doesn't make those concerns go away. Hampton would also have lower upside on teams that already have scoring guards locked in, like Sacramento (#12) or Portland (#16).
(11) PF Obi Toppin, Dayton (LOWER than most expert rankings)
When Obi Toppin sees the list of names ahead of him, he should be stewing with rage. He's arguably the most productive player on the entire board. This past season at Dayton, he averaged 20.0 points on 63% shooting from the field. He's a good athlete and dunker, and he even hit 39% of his threes. At 6'9", he's a natural PF but he could theoretically play some SF or C too if need be. What else does a guy need to do to go in the top 5??
But while Toppin checks all the boxes on paper, I'm a little more skeptical. In fact, he reminds me a lot of Arizona PF Derrick Williams, who went # 2 in the 2011 draft. Many pundits thought Williams was the best player in the class, fresh on the heels of an awesome sophomore season that saw him average 19.5 points per game on 60% shooting and 57% (!) from three. The trouble is: Williams benefited from a small sample size from 3 that year (74 total). And while he was athletic in the dunking sense, he didn't have the hip movement to guard 3s or 4s effectively.
We see some of the same traits play out here with Toppin. He dominated this past season as a (22 year old) sophomore. Still, I'm doubtful that his three-point shooting is as good as the numbers suggest. I'm doubtful that his run-and-dunk athleticism translates to the defensive end, where he often looks stiff when changing direction. I can see a scenario where Toppin is a scoring big in the mold of a John Collins, but it's more likely to me that he'll be a scorer off the bench instead.
best fits
While I'm cool on Obi Toppin myself, I fully admit that I could be wrong and he may just end up being Rookie of the Year. That may happen if he plays on a team like Washington (#9) where his guards will be able to take a lot of pressure off and give him good opportunities to score. Cleveland (#5) would also make some sense if they trade Kevin Love.
worst fits
If Toppin's defense is going to be bad, then he'd be a poor fit with Atlanta (#6). I also don't see much of a fit with Sacramento (#12) given the presence of Marvin Bagley III. In the long run, both may end up being smallball 5s.
(12) SF Isaac Okoro, Auburn (LOWER than most expert rankings)
We've all had this experience before. You'll go see a movie that you hear everyone rave about and you come away... underwhelmed. It's fine. It's OK. But you just don't get all the fuss about it.
Right out of that Silver Linings Playbook comes Isaac Okoro. His stats don't jump off the page: 12.9 points, 4.4 rebounds, 0.9 steals, 0.9 blocks. He's allegedly a great defensive player, but his dimensions (6'6" with a 6'8" wingspan) don't suggest "stopper." Worse yet, he's a poor shooter from distance (29% from three, 67% from the line.) The last time I got this sense of "meh-ness" was Jarrett Culver last year. I didn't understand how he went in the top 5, and I'm not going to understand how Okoro goes in the top 10 this year.
To be clear, I don't think Okoro (or Culver) is a BAD prospect, just that they're both overrated by the community. Okoro is definitely a strong kid who is active around the rim. He's a live body. He could theoretically improve his shooting and become a starter. Still, "potential starter" is not something that I want in a top 10 pick.
best fits
While I don't love Isaac Okoro myself, I can see some good fits on the board. Washington (#9) could use some thicker wings who can play solid defense. Portland (#16) is incredibly desperate for capable wings themselves.
worst fits
With Okoro, I don't necessarily think the worst fits are a matter of skill set as much as expectation. If he goes as high as Chicago (#4) or Cleveland (#5), I suspect he'll disappoint in terms of the returns and garner some resentment from the fan base.
(13) SG/SF Josh Green, Arizona
As oddly overrated as Isaac Okoro is (in my mind), Josh Green is oddly underrated. Okoro tends to go about 10 spots higher in mock drafts, but they seem nearly identical in terms of a head-to-head comparison. In fact, I had to go back and forth about which I'd rank higher. They're both good athletes for their position and should be backend starters at the next level. Okoro is thicker and better around the rim, while Green is further along as a shooter. Overall I leaned to Okoro because he had the size to match up with bigger SFs and has a little more of a bullying scorer gene in him, but it was a close race.
In fact, you can argue that Josh Green's selflessness will actually benefit him in the NBA. He's a "team guy," with an underrated passing ability and basketball IQ. The stats don't jump off the pages in that regard (2.6 assists, 1.6 turnovers), but he was also playing with a good college PG in Nico Mannion. As he moves to the NBA, he's unlikely to have the ball much either, but he projects to be an all-around glue guy who can help on both ends.
best fits
As with Isaac Okoro, Portland (#16) could be a nice landing spot for a solid wing player. And while New Orleans (#13) has a lot of athleticism already, it never hurts to have another viable wing. They tended to play small at the SG-SF spot, which hurt their defense overall. Playing Green could help them when they slide Brandon Ingram over to the 4 and Zion Williamson at the 5.
worst fits
I don't see many "bad" fits for Josh Green on the board, but you'd prefer that he went to a team that intended to make him a part of the future. Minnesota (#17) may not be able to do that if they already have Jarrett Culver and Josh Okogie. Brooklyn (#19) may not be looking for long-term projects since they're in a "win now" mode.
(14) PG Tyrell Terry, Stanford
Tyrell Terry is rocketing up draft boards on account of his stellar shooting ability (41% from 3, 89% from the line) and his better-than-expected measurement of 6'3". It's only natural that pundits would start comparing him to stud shooters like Steph Curry.
That said, not every stud shooter is Steph Curry. Some are Seth Curry. Some are Quinn Cook. There's a slight chance Terry breaks out as a good starter, but there's a better than average chance he peaks as a rotational player instead. Still, he should be an asset to a team as a spacer, particularly if they run their offense through a playmaking forward (like a LeBron James).
And in case you're wondering, no he is NOT related to Jason Terry, although some of their skill sets do overlap as scoring guards with deep range.
best fits
If we presume that Tyrell Terry can be a Seth (not Steph) type player, then adding him to Dallas (#18) makes sense. He can develop behind Seth for a year or two as he gains weight, and then help complement Luka Doncic as a spacer after that. Similarly, he makes sense for Philadelphia (#21) as well. We'd still lock Ben Simmons into the starting PG role, but Terry could play alongside him in lineups or be used as a sparkplug off the bench.
worst fits
Teams that may be eyeing Tyrell Terry as a surefire starter will have to be careful. For example, Phoenix (#10) needs an heir apparent for Ricky Rubio, but a Terry + Devin Booker combo may be problematic on the defensive end. Some other teams -- Brooklyn (#19) and Denver (#22) -- already have sharpshooter guards, so they don't have as strong of a need for this type of player.
(15) PF Aleksej Pokusevski, Serbia
We mentioned that LaMelo Ball may be the biggest boom/bust prospect in the class, likening him to gambling on Roulette. Enter Aleksej Pokusevski. "Gambling" may not even be doing it justice. This is like risking your family fortune on a bag of magic beans.
But hey, that worked for Jack, and it could work for an NBA team as well. I have a friend who works in coaching who raved about Pokusevski and considers him a top 10 prospect overall. After all, this is a legit 7'0" player with true perimeter skills. Playing for Olympiacos' development team, he averaged 16.7 points, 12.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 2.0 steals, and 2.8 blocks per 36 minutes. He hasn't even turned 19 years old yet, giving him an enormous amount of upside.
Still, he scares the hell out of me. He's listed at 7'0" and 200 pounds, with narrow shoulders that make you doubt how much weight he'll be able to carry in the long term. His body type doesn't remind you of any current NBA forwards; it reminds you of two kids wearing a trenchcoat.
All in all, Pokusevski seems like a great prospect to invest in, presuming you don't have to withdraw from the bank until 2023 or 2024. To that end, teams should only consider them if they feel confident in their long-term job security.
best fits
If the goal is to send Aleksej Pokusevski to a good, stable organization, then you can't do much better than San Antonio (#11). Even if Gregg Popovich retires from coaching, R.C. Buford should be around to help the next coach (Becky Hammon? Will Hardy? R.C.'s son Chase?). And if the goal is to find a good stable GM, Sam Presti and Oklahoma City (#25) would be a great home as they prepare for a long-term rebuild.
worst fits
Orlando (#15) always values length, but they have limited space left in the frontcourt and limited leg room left on that poor charter plane.
I wasn't kidding when I said this post was "overly" long. The rest of the top 20 got cut off because of a length limit. I'll try to include them in the comment section.

2020.11.03 01:09 ben_s16 My Predictions for who I Think Could be Killed off this Season

So far, this season has been a MAJOR improvement compared to the last two seasons and this season alone has already killed off twice as many characters than last season and here are my predictions for who could possibly be in danger.
Keep in mind, these are only predictions and I could be wrong about a majority of these if not all of them.
First off, I’ll go ahead and name off the characters who I think are safe: - Morgan - John - Alicia - Charlie - Grace and her baby - Dwight - Althea - Sarah - Annie - Wes - Baby Morgan - Skidmark - Rufus (The Bounty Hunter’s old dog that’s with Morgan now)
Now onto the predictions:

2020.10.30 17:16 billypennsballs The unseen machine pushing Trump’s social media megaphone into overdrive

By Elizabeth Dwoskin and Craig TimbergOct. 30, 2020 at 6:00 a.m. EDTAdd to list
President Trump launched into a tweetstorm in April, banging out nine retweets of the Centers for Disease Control’s account on the dangers of misusing disinfectant and other topics — two days after he himself had suggested that people could inject themselves with bleach to cure covid-19.
But those tweets spread in an odd pattern: More than half the 3,000 accounts retweeting Trump did so in near-perfect synchronicity, so that the 945th tweet was the same number of seconds apart as the 946th, University of Colorado information science professor Leysia Palen found.
The unusual finding underscores some of the little-known ways in which Trump’s social media army — composed of devoted followers and likely assistance from software that artificially boosts his content — has helped him develop one of the world’s most powerful political megaphones, unlike any other in the English-speaking world.
That megaphone has become a frequent source of misinformation, some of it so toxic that Harvard researchers recently dubbed attacks on mail-in voting by Trump and right-leaning leaders “a highly effective disinformation campaign with potentially profound effects ... for the legitimacy of the 2020 election.”
Trump’s singular ability to spread his messages, often disseminating false or unsubstantiated information, comes from his prominence as president and the relentless clip of his tweeting to his 87 million followers. He is also aided by a vital feedback loop — often discussed but poorly understood — among the president, high-profile influencers and rank-and-file followers that both push messages in his direction and promote every online utterance.
His feedback loop, according to several new and forthcoming studies, has become a leading threat to the integrity of political debate in the United States, with an impact that to date appears far more damaging than the efforts of Russian operatives or other foreign adversaries.
A study released Thursday by the Election Integrity Partnership, a consortium of misinformation researchers, found that just 20 conservative, pro-Trump Twitter accounts — including the president’s own u/realDonaldTrump — were the original source of one-fifth of retweets pushing misleading narratives about voting.
A recent Cornell University study, meanwhile, concluded that Trump was also the “largest driver” of misinformation in the public conversation about the coronavirus during the first half of 2020. The researchers found that nearly 40 percent of articles containing misinformation about the virus mentioned him, including articles about false cures and blaming China for the disease.
“Trump is hands down the most significant accelerant and amplifier for disinformation in the election,” said Graham Brookie, director and managing editor of the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, a branch of the prominent nonpartisan think tank that is a leading source of research on foreign and domestic disinformation. “The scale and scope of domestic disinformation is far greater than anything a foreign adversary could ever do to us."
Study shows Trump is a super-spreader — of coronavirus misinformation
The president, his reelection campaign and congressional Republicans have repeatedly said that Trump’s skill in deploying social media is key to delivering his message in the face of what they say is hostility from mainstream news sources and leading Silicon Valley companies. Trump and his defenders also contend that his comment about the potential medical value of ingesting bleach was intended as sarcasm, not a suggestion, and that the extensive news coverage of that and other elements of the White House’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic are signs of systemic bias that a potent Twitter following helps him overcome.
Trump campaign spokeswoman Samantha Zager said in a statement, “Neither Big Tech nor the mainstream media is the arbiter of truth or elections. ... President Trump is a staunch advocate for a free and fair election where every vote counts exactly once.”
Her statement did not directly address allegations that he and his social media army have become leading sources of disinformation in the election. Nor did it address claims by some researchers that he is a bigger source of disinformation than Russia or to evidence that he gets a boost from automated accounts.
While researchers believe there is a significant degree of automation powering Trump’s megaphone, they do not contend that he or his supporters routinely break Twitter’s rules. The company allows enthusiastic followers to use software to automatically retweet people, and though the company bans “bulk retweeting,” it does not disclose at what point frequent retweeting crosses over into prohibited behavior. Twitter suspended 100 out of 200 sample accounts brought to its attention by The Washington Post for spammy activity or other violations.
Tech companies have spent the past four years preparing to fight foreign disinformation campaigns, but now they are confronted with a situation where their political caution and deference to free speech, coupled with the power of algorithms and loosely enforced rules, have turned their platforms into hubs of domestic misinformation — with the misleading comments often led by the president himself.
Twitter, for example, did not have a policy banning any form of misinformation until 2020, and until just months ago, both Twitter and Facebook exempted politicians — including Trump — from their rules on the grounds that their comments were too newsworthy to censor.
Twitter labels Trump’s tweets with a fact check for the first time
Of the more than 22,000 falsehoods Trump has shared since the start of his presidency through this month, according to The Washington Post Fact Checker, more than 3,700 of them have been on social media. The number of lies is six times greater so far this year than during his first year in office, the Fact Checker has found. Since May, Twitter has put warning labels and restricted viewership on at least 15 of those comments, while Facebook has removed half a dozen.
“Protecting the integrity of the conversation on Twitter by stopping platform manipulation and addressing misinformation remains one of our top priorities,” Twitter spokeswoman Liz Kelley said in a statement, adding that since the 2016 election the platform has added protections to reduce manipulation and misleading information.
Facebook declined to comment.
But some of those actions may be too late to make a difference.
Examining the impact of Twitter’s enforcement against an Aug. 23 Trump tweet in which he called mail-in ballots a “security disaster,” Kate Starbird, a disinformation expert at the University of Washington, found that Twitter’s disabling of the retweet button after labeling the tweet effectively stopped the content from spreading. But the tweet had already gone viral.
“Twitter has grown quicker in taking action on President Trump’s tweets” since then, said Starbird. “But due to the size of Trump’s following — and perhaps other factors like coordinated tweeting, automation and an unusually attentive audience — his tweets can still spread quite far before the platform takes a corrective action.”

Trump’s social media megaphone

Trump had just 20 million Twitter followers on Inauguration Day in January 2017. Today, he averages more than 1,000 tweets a month, with nearly 17,000 retweets each, an unparalleled volume in the English-speaking world, according to researchers. That means Trump benefits from a powerful ecosystem that amplifies every post, and from Twitter’s own loose rules and algorithms that give an additional boost to messages based on the engagement they receive.
When Palen and her team examined Trump’s tweetstorm on the CDC, they discovered that 56 percent of each of the 3,000 retweets were shared in the same pattern over a period of 24 hours.
For example, an account called u/tthseeker always retweeted Trump 42 minutes after he tweeted. Another account, u/shauna33R, always tweeted 4½ seconds after that.
Part of the pattern involves a core group of more than 500 especially enthusiastic followers — with 832,000 followers among them — that retweeted Trump in a roughly identical order and length of time after Trump tweets from April to September, regardless of what the president tweeted.
Palen said the pattern was “remarkable” and could not have happened by accident. She said it strongly suggests there is some combination of automated accounts and human retweeting at work.
Then, comparing all Trump tweets in August to tweets from other high-profile accounts, such as New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, as well as celebrity Kim Kardashian, Palen found that retweet patterns for the other accounts have about half the degree of similarity as Trump’s.
Twitter adds new warnings about misinformation in run up to election
The set of accounts identified by Palen swells with support for Trump and his political slogans, using hashtags that reference the idea that they are a social media army, such as #digitalsoldier, #maga and #fightback, and patriotic images such as flags and eagles. More than 60 reference the QAnon conspiracy theory. Many of the accounts, in their profiles, describe the owners as conservatives, devout Christians, veterans and gun rights enthusiasts. Retweets of Trump, and of one another, are far more common than original tweets for many accounts.
The Post attempted to contact more than 100 of the users through tweets and direct messages. Those who replied expressed enthusiasm for the president and an eagerness to amplify him at a time when, they contended, his voice was getting muddied by mainstream news sources and technology companies.
One person using the name PatriotMountainMan tweeted in reply to a Post query, “I retweet President Trump’s entire Twitter profile every day to BYPASS THE CORRUPT AND BIASED LIBERAL MEDIA who have lost their way and have failed to report the truth to the American people.”
Palen has also found that more than 100 of the original accounts that retweeted Trump in April have been suspended by Twitter. The company targeted the accounts for “bulk retweeting” and other violations. In addition, Twitter said it had already reduced the reach of 80 percent of the 200 accounts shared by The Post, meaning the accounts had less value in Twitter’s dissemination algorithms than those that behaved more authentically.
Palen, whose research is ongoing but has been reviewed by two outside experts on behalf of The Post, said she believes a substantial portion of retweets of Trump tweets are indeed authentic expressions of support from Americans who share his views. But she has ultimately concluded that programmed software, or automation, is also propelling Trump to go viral to a degree that has not previously been understood.
“Trump’s amplification machine is peerless,” Palen said.
A substantial portion of those retweeting Trump are authentic expressions of support from Americans who share his views, says Clemson University social media researcher Darren Linvill, who reviewed Palen’s work at The Post’s request.
“There’s a lot of passion for Donald Trump on social media, especially on Twitter. And a lot of that passion translates into blind retweeting that may appear automated but is not,” said Linvill, lead researcher for Clemson’s Media Forensics Hub.
Though Twitter bans bots, or fully automated accounts, the company allows a degree of automation in its service, by permitting people to use third-party software programs that automatically retweet or reply to tweets. In addition, Twitter’s algorithms are designed to reward engagement — or tweets that get retweeted or liked very quickly — which results in the company widely sharing that information beyond the person’s actual followers and in its trending feature. Twitter’s algorithms give lower weight to low-quality or spammy accounts.

Twitter’s Kelley said the company was still investigating the retweeting pattern. Of the 200 accounts identified by The Post, Kelley said they did not appear to be using third-party software but were likely real people engaging in behaviors and tactics that the company frowns upon.
“We often see people using Twitter in a way that can appear and sometimes is spammy, but many times is just how some people use the service,” Kelley said in an email. “Bulk and aggressive Retweeting is a violation of the Twitter Rules and may result in action, but that does not mean the behavior is inauthentic.”
She said the company is considering adding a warning notice to users when they are retweeting too much and about to get sanctioned.
The University of Washington’s Starbird found that on topics such as the coronavirus and the election, between 7 and 10 percent of the accounts that retweeted Trump were affiliated with QAnon, an online conspiratorial movement that Facebook and Twitter recently curtailed, suggesting that his support on these subjects came from large numbers of followers who have violated Twitter’s rules. Trump has in turn retweeted QAnon-affiliated accounts more than 250 times since taking office, according to the left-leaning watchdog group Media Matters.
Fighting manipulation is a “cat-and-mouse game, and the mouse has discovered a new trick,” said a person familiar with Twitter’s system who spoke on the condition of anonymity to comment on the new research.

How information gets to Trump

Researchers are also examining how disinformation makes its way to the president through campaigns that push distorted narratives in his direction.
At campaign rallies and during the presidential debate over the past month, for example, Trump has talked about how ballots with his name on them had been found “thrown in a river” — implying that politically motivated postal workers were sabotaging his chances of winning the election.
The tossed ballots narrative originated Sept. 23 with an article on the conservative website Gateway Pundit. It quoted a news report about a batch of mail being found in a ditch in Greenville, Wis., and claimed, without citing evidence, that the incident was part of a Democratic plot to steal the 2020 election because the lost mail included some absentee ballots. The Gateway Pundit story was tweeted one hour and one minute later by the president’s son Eric Trump, who, along with his brother Donald Trump Jr., are the most frequent tweeters about mail-in ballots among the 50 users Trump follows, according to researchers with the University of Washington.
The story was then tweeted by conservative action group Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, Breitbart News, and the TrumpWarRoom, researchers with the Election Integrity Partnership, a consortium including Stanford University, University of Washington, the DFRLab, Graphika, and other leading disinformation researchers, found. Within 24 hours, the Gateway Pundit story had 60,000 retweets. Trump then mentioned it during the Sept. 29 presidential debate, though he changed the ditch to a river — an error the White House later conceded.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission later announced that no Wisconsin ballots had actually been found among the tossed mail. The matter is still under investigation by the U.S. Postal Service.
Gateway Pundit founder Jim Hoft told The Post that the article “was accurate.”
Trump’s re-shared tweets help shield him from Twitter’s bans
“The disinformation spread by Donald Trump doesn’t typically start with him,” said the Atlantic Council’s Brookie, who previously worked at the National Security Council during the Obama Administration as a civil servant. “It is the endpoint in a supply chain of disinformation — the tip of an iceberg with an amplification ecosystem of right-wing media, influencers and outright conspiracy theorists making up the bulk below.”
And the distorted narratives have made an impact even on the left. Sharon Broussard, an Oakland resident, said she decided to vote in person on the first day of early voting on Oct. 5 because she no longer trusted the Postal Service.
“Your ballot might be tossed in the trash or in the side of the road,” she warned in a recent Facebook post in a group for African Americans who support Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala D. Harris. “Please no distractions or voter suppression!”
Nate Persily, co-director of the Cyber Policy Center at Stanford University, said Trump’s feedback loop also involves users who aggressively reply to him to seek his attention and the president’s rewarding of followers through retweets. Both behaviors egg him on.
Florida yoga instructor William Painter said that before Twitter suspended his account during a sweep of QAnon this summer, he was on a campaign to encourage Trump to continue to promote the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a cure for covid-19. His Enki74 account was Trump’s second-most-frequent replier on the topic, messaging Trump 68 times over a 45 day period in the spring, said Avery Wendell, a misinformation researcher with Harvard’s Shorenstein Center.
“Trump is attempting to listen to the will of people,” Painter said.
Another supporter, Logan Cook, who goes by the username Carpedonktun, said he has been able to get Trump’s attention with his self-designed memes, which include a recent video Trump retweeted that was edited to make it look as if an Black toddler were running away from a White child (in reality, the two children hugged one another in the viral video).
Fake Twitter accounts posing as Black Trump supporters appear, reach thousands, then vanish
Cook said he didn’t know how exactly his memes, which he said had been retweeted by Trump 20 to 30 times before Twitter suspended his account in June for promoting “manipulated media” and copyright infringement in relation to the toddler video, made their way to the president. Trump hosted him twice at the White House last year, including a visit to the Oval Office. Cook described his work as political satire. “Memes are not misinformation,” he said.

Path to Trump’s megaphone

For most of its history, Twitter gave broad latitude to free speech. That changed this spring as it became the first social media company to sanction Trump, restricting access to and fact-checking a misleading tweet about mail-in ballots in late May.
Before this year, the company had no policies against misinformation, and the flagging of Trump’s tweet was also one of the first times the company had penalized anyone for false or misleading speech.
Executives thought the company should not be an arbiter of truth in domestic affairs, according to people familiar with Twitter’s efforts who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal conversations, in part because they were aware that any action they took would be viewed as tilting the scales.
But that idea was challenged under the Trump presidency. The company faced criticism from politicians and employees that the company’s service was becoming a vector for abuse, misinformation and targeted harassment.
With Election Day looming, Twitter imposes new limits on U.S. politicians — and ordinary users, too
Trump’s account was protected by the company’s “public interest” clause that exempted politicians from its rules. In 2018, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey told The Post that the company was considering whether powerful people like politicians should be better policed.
Twitter announced it would begin to label tweets from powerful people who broke its rules the following year, effectively ending the public interest exemption. The announcement followed a year’s worth of new policies promoting “healthy conversations” and a new focus on purging or restricting problematic accounts. Then, this year, the company banned misinformation about the coronavirus and the election, as well as manipulated video.
When Trump tweeted about mail-in ballots in May, the company had the policies in place to take action, but internally it took an act of courage to go against Trump, the people said.
“Much of the influence Trump has gained to shape the national conversation will far outlast his presidency,” Clemson’s Linvill added.

2020.10.24 02:25 spfan102 The Challenge: Exes 3 fan cast

Surprisingly this is kind of hard to put a cast together, so I had to do some stretches, but it's not like the show hasn't done that before. My format would be like Exes 2. Things like this are also ever changing. So some people could get back together, some newer exes will emerge in the future. It unfortunately means CT and Wes wouldn't fit on the cast. Maybe there's some others that other people can think of. I don't watch Big Brother or AYTO, so maybe there's other possibilities from rookie debuts there. I do watch Survivor, but there isn't much options there. I've seen Michele and Wendell suggested before, but I don't really see Wendell doing this show. I've heard Jay & Michele dated too, but not sure how true that is. So that could be a possibility.
Bananas & Natalie - They had a thing in Vendettas I believe. Didn't seem to end great.
Kyle & Cara - This definitely brought a lot of drama and probably could again.
Theo & Kam - This caused somewhat of a rift with Leroy and them during their fling. But Kam and Leroy are back together, so this would be interesting to see Theo and Kam as an exes pair.
Asaf & Nany - This was brief, but it's not like they haven't done that before and it's 1 of the most recent ones.
Derrick & Tori - This was a pretty bad break up as Tori cheated on him with Jordan.
Bear & Kailah - Both have other options, but this was the most recent and a pretty big deal as Kailah cheated on her boyfriend at home with Bear.
Cory & Aneesa - I know Cory's done some other show on MTV, so maybe he has other options and I know this is kind of old news, but again, they've gone with stretches before.
Jamie & Ashley - Again, this is kind of old news and surprisingly Ashley doesn't really have any other options. The best one would've been Hunter, but they were paired together already in Final Reckoning.
Brad & Tori/Britini - I put both as I think the Tori one would be a bigger deal, but I wouldn't know if she'd accept to play again and especially if it's to pair with her ex husband. So if not Tori, then Britini works for Brad's ex too.
Joss & Amanda - I've heard Amanda doesn't want to come back, but this pair works. It fills a spot.
Rogan & Jenn - There was definitely drama that came from these 2 being together and it's 1 of the most recent ones.
Josh & Georgia - As mentioned earlier about Bear having other options, certainly could put Bear and Georgia together, but this fills out the cast more. Josh and Georgia had a thing, even with Bear being sorta in the picture still.
Laurel & Nicole - This would probably bring a lot of drama. I think this would be fair given both of their physical capabilities as well. And Rachel & Aneesa were the sole female only pair in Exes 1, so this would be similar to that.
Nelson & Angela - Angela has done 1 season before. Nelson and her seemed to have had a bad break up. Angela I think has more to give than what we saw in her 1 season.

2020.10.21 10:07 HeroJoe12 [SF] The Rise and Fall of Auctoria

“What is your wish traveller?”
The poorly lit throne room was well decorated and maintained yet felt empty. The voice sounded as if it was coming from the shadows at the end of the room.
The traveller stepped forward “I’m looking into the history of this underground palace you seem to reside in. May I ask why and how you came to live on this CDP; this abandoned planet?”
“Ahh! Good. That I can give you. In answer to your question I live here.”
This CDP was designated as uninhabited ever since it’s discovery yet this sentient claims to live here. Would he be the last of the civilisation that built this structure. If what he said was true, he would have to be at least 100 years old and if the potassium–argon dating on the structure was correct he might even be close to 300 years old.
The traveller then asked “What is your name?”
“Call me Dolus. And you? What is your name traveller?”
“Wendell. My name is Wendell. May I ask, what happened to your people?”
With a hint of sadness, he answered “They were slaughtered due to their selfishness and lust for power. It destroyed us. It destroyed use all. Now my only purpose is to protect the very power that destroyed my people and never let it get into the hands of anyone else.”
“What type of power destroyed your people.”
“Knowledge” Dolus simply replied.
Trying to probe for more information Wendell asked “What does this ‘knowledge’ contain?”
“You know of the Fractural do you not?”
Confused Wendell replied “Of course. It’s used as an energy source in everything from powering a planet to opening Slipstream gates.”
“What if I told you there was a source of power more powerful than the Fractural itself”
“That would be impossible”
“My people thought so too, until the red eyed demon appeared. He gave us the knowledge and in exchange we gave him knowledge in return, a galactical map to be more precise. My people prospered for hundreds of years until we discovered the source of the knowledge. We craved more. It came at a price though. And so, I paid the price and now I have more knowledge than any mortal here. Yet the knowledge cannot be given to any soul in this universe as the what is within is to dangerous and so I confined my self to this room so that I am never tempted to use the knowledge I have learned and so no one can obtain the knowledge that is beyond.”
With a sigh of disappointment Wendell replied “I see that this is the end of my research into this temple then if I’m not mistaken”
“There is nothing more you can obtain here.”
“Very well. Then this is good bye Dolus.”
“Farwell Wendell.”
And with the blink of an eye Wendell was back on the surface. Where the palace entrance once was there was empty space, a bare patch on the ground. No sign of a structure or it’s underground halls.
“Spirit!”
A disembodied voice replies “Yes sir”
“Report”
“You seem to be transported through a small local slipstream portal and the structure is nowhere to be seen on scanners and there are still no human life signs or robotic electric fields in the area.”
“Very well. There’s nothing left for us here. Let’s go.”



This is one of many short stories set in a universe that I have created set in an alternate future. Please don't mind any grammatical errors that might be present as I am not experienced in writing.
I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoy sharing these stories.

Monthly Update: Parachute Uniswap Liquidity Program, ParJar Swaps Go Live!, Website Redesign, CF Joins Team, Annual Beer Exchange, …– 26 Jun – 30 Jul'20

Hi Parachuters! This has been a long time coming. With a ton of pending weekly updates dating back to 26-Jun-2020, I thought it would be best to club all the Parachute news into monthly reports and publish them back-to-back over the next few days to catch up with the latest. We have recently had some super eventful months at Parachute and ParJar. So much so that, the update reports are starting to look like friggin’ omnibuses. For a change, we will be focusing on Parachute + ParJar news alone in these monthly reports. Because if we include news from our partner project in these, we might as well publish the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Haha. So here’s all that happened at Parachute from 26-Jun-20 to 30-Jul-20 –
26 Jun – 2 Jul'20:
Coinciding with Liverpool winning the Premier League, Alexis topped the FPL chart this week. Naj hosted a mega trivia in TTR for 10k $PAR in prizes. Peace Love hosted another one as well. This week’s Two-for-Tuesday saw folks posting music "featuring bands, artists or song titles that feature a place". Thanks for making the playlist again Sebastian! With Parachute giving a final push, $PAR won the vote to get listed on Txbit. Saweet! This listing offers $PAR its first set of fiat trading pairs. Click here to see Tony testing out the beta version of ParJar swaps. That is quite epic indeed! Doing instant crypto swaps directly from your Telegram account. The ParJar Gaming Room crew, welcomed $GHOST to the pool of rewards for this month. Last month, they had added $ESH to the huge prize pot.
Ice shared an early sneak peek into how Uniswap-powered swaps would look like in ParJar
3 Jul – 9 Jul'20:
Just like clockwork, Naj hosted her Mega Trivia in TTR on Friday with some cool $PAR prizes to be won. Gamerboy did a round of random trivia for some good fun as well. Click here for a glimpse of 4th of July fireworks from Cap’s apartment. Peace Love’s Sunday Big Trivia in Tiproom was a ton of fun like always. Charlotte’s Tuesday Trivia in TTR had 10k $PAR in prizes. It was a free-for-all for this week’s Two-for-Tuesday which saw 71 participants. All the amazing music was collated into an awesome playlist by Sebastian. Darren hosted an entirely new format-based trivia in TTR this week along with a mini trivia.
BlackBullShark shared a blast from the past with a picture of his stash of OG Parachute stickers
10 Jul – 16 Jul'20:
Cap set up the first private group of beta testers from the community to check out the swap function on ParJar. If you feel anxious trading on Uniswap, ParJar takes out all the complexity and makes it dead simple to swap tokens through it using Uniswap pools in the background. You have to see it to believe it. Absolute gamechanger! For this week's Friday prompt, Jason got Parachuters to "draw a scene that is confusing". Afful’s Big Trivia in the Tiproom had 1k $PAR in prizes per question. The #par4par raffle is currently running with a 500k $PAR prizepool. Dang! As you already know, at Parachute, discussions are freewheeling and could move in any direction. This week, we got glimpses of the lovely #DogsOfParachute from Tony, Clinton, Doc Vic (we already know Symba from earlier though) and Kamo (Solomon). All of them deserve a million pets.

Some lovely creatures from Tony’s running trail. Haha
In this week’s reading recommendation from Cap we have The Growth Handbook written by the Intercom team. We even made it to 4chan this week. Haha. For Two-for-Tuesday Gian got Parachuters to share music "featuring bands or songs that have an animal in their name". Like always, Sebastian saved the day with an awesome playlist. EPL fans can check out the latest #FPL standings from the LordHades’ update. Alexis continues to be on top while LH has toppled Novel Cloud to get to the second position. Jason kicked off a public vote for a rerun of the Parachute beer exchange.

Black Sea from Radu’s POV
17 Jul – 23 Jul'20:
This was one of the biggest weeks for ParJar with Uniswap-powered swaps going live for all 40k+ active users. Pure awesomeness! No more fumbling with your Metamask or getting anxious about poor connectivity. ParJar swaps make Uniswap as easy as 1-2-3. As Cap put it: "Initiating a transaction on uniswap in under 30 seconds from your phone ain’t too shabby". Tech flex! Thank you for the shoutout, Sentivate! Jason’s weekend prompt got Parachuters to draw a "tiger doing something tigers don't normally do" (#donkeytigers). Naj hosted a Mega Trivia in TTR on Saturday with a 10k $PAR prize pool. Peace Love hosted another one the next day. As per the latest #FPL update from LordHades, Alexis continues to top the table with 2210 points. Congratulations to Nat for taking home 60k $PAR by winning this week’s Parena. Woot woot!
A small sample of all entries to #donkeytigers. Gosh darn amazing! Art credits: 1 – Unique, 2 – Bada, 3 – Marelys, 4 – Kunal, 5 – Wendell, 6 – Jose, 7 – Elmar, 8 – Nat, 9 – Maria, 10 – Adrian, 11 - Yosma, 12 - Carlos
Some great discussions happened this week in the PAR Utility channel about tokenomics (including a possible liquidity incentive program on Uniswap), new web design and the Parachute product roadmap. Click here to catch up on all the chatter. Or if you want a TLDR, you can read Cap’s roundup post as well. This week’s Two-for-Tuesday featured live in concert videos. Missed it? Sebastian’s got your back as always with the playlist. In the latest #FPL update shared by LordHades, it looks like Alexis, Novel Cloud and LH are impossible to beat since they continue to command the top 3 slots. And if you didn’t know already the kind of work that Clinton does at For Living Independence Charity, watch this video. Ninjas cutting onions, eh?
Some planned design elements for the website revamp

24 Jul – 30 Jul'20:
The Parachute Uniswap Liquidity Rewards Program got off to a roaring start this week with 22M $PAR pooled already. Read all about it here. There’s some sweet $PAR rewards for poolers. CF made a video demo of how a swap works in ParJar. The launch notification of ParJar swaps was pushed to 65k+ people on Telegram i.e. everyone who’s ever interact with ParJar. Community inputs started pouring in regarding which project to add next. Continuing with last week’s discussions in the PAR utility channel on the site redesign, Cap closed in on the final ideas and shared some snippets of what the new site could look like and quickly followed it up with the launch of the new site. It looks amazing! Darren's Friday Mega Trivia in TTR was a lot of fun as always. Gamer Boy hosted a “Big Trivia” and Peace Love held a “Sunday BIG TRIVIA” in Tiproom as well. Afful’s “General knowledge” quiz had 1k $PAR in prizes per question. For Jason's weekend prompt, Parachuters had to post "2 to 3 gifs and make an interesting and compelling story out of them" or otherwise referred to as #donkeygifmania. As a bonus follow-up prompt, Jason got folks to "watch a movie called Rubber and tell me about it! So you are not confused it is a movie about a tire. #donkeymoviecritics". Lolol!
The new website looks like a piece of art
Alexis and Crypto French have taken over the Parachute socials and will be driving many of the campaigns going forward. Noice! And if you didn’t know this already, CF recently joined the team as an intern. Double noice! Do you have a feature in mind that should be on ParJaParachute? Or something else that should be on the project roadmap? Don’t forget to chime in. The team is all ears. For Big Brother fans, the BB Contest will be starting soon. Stay tuned! The season finale of the Parachute Fantasy Premier League was this week. Congratulations to Alexis, LordHades, Novel Lucas and Chris (@Loki255) for finishing on top and winning a boatload of $PAR. Feeling overwhelmed with so much news? Cap rounded it all up into a crisp mailer. Thanks Mark for opening our eyes to the Memetic Institute. Haha! This week's Two-for-Tuesday was a free-for-all. Click here to catch up on all the music that was posted. Thanks once again Sebas for doing this! Entries for the 3rd Annual Parachute Beer Exchange were opened this week. If you would like to enjoy some unique brews in exchange for local specialties from your area, hop in!

And with that, it’s a wrap for July 2020 @ Parachute/ParJar. See you again with another massive monthly update tomorrow. Ciao for now!
