No game today, so let's remember a forgotten Yankee: Jackie Jensen
Jackie Jensen, "The Golden Boy", was a superstar athlete in the 1940s who seemed destined for greatness as the heir to Joe DiMaggio... only to be supplanted by a different golden boy, the great Mickey Mantle.
Jensen would eventually live up to the hype, but with the Red Sox -- but his career prematurely because, as baseball expanded to the west coast, his fear of flying made road games unbearable!
The Yankees between 1947 and 1964 were utterly dominant, winning 15 pennants and 10 World Series. And it wasn't just the major league team that was successful. The Yankees of this era were loaded up and down the system, from Rookie ball to their two Triple-A teams!
With such a loaded major league roster, the Yankees had many talented players stuck either on the end of the bench or in the minors who would eventually find an opportunity with other teams, including Bob Cerv, Vic Power, Gus Triandos, Lew Burdette, Jerry Lumpe, Bob Porterfield, and Bob Keegan, who would all be All-Stars with other teams. Clint Courtney would be the 1952 A.L. Rookie of the Year runner-up after the Yankees traded him to the Browns, and Bill Virdon was the 1955 N.L. Rookie of the Year with the Cardinals (and then Yankee manager from 1974 to 1975!).
But the most talented player who just couldn't find the playing time in New York was Jack Eugene Jensen, born March 9, 1927, in San Francisco. His parents divorced when he was 5, and he grew up poor, his mother working six days a week, 12 hours a day. Jensen said the family moved 16 times between kindergarten and eighth grade -- "every time the rent came due."
After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Jensen went to the University of California in 1946 on the G.I. Bill. There he became one of the most famous college players in the country, leading Cal to the Rose Bowl. In 1947, he was the starting fullback as well as the team's top defensive back, and in 1948, he rushed for 1,000 yards and was an All-American.
He also was a tremendous two-way baseball player, pitching and hitting for the Golden Bears in 1947 as the won the very first College World Series, beating a Yale team that had George H.W. Bush playing first base. In 1949, he was an All-American in baseball, too.
His blond hair, good looks, and athletic accomplishments earned him the nickname "The Golden Boy."
Halfway through his junior year, Jensen left Berkeley to turn pro. Jensen would later say he couldn't risk playing a career-ending injury playing for free while teams -- baseball and football -- were trying to sign him to big-money contracts.
"There was a money tree growing in my backyard. Why shouldn't I pluck off the dollars when I wanted to?"
Jensen considered a number of offers, including from the Yankees, before signing a three-year, $75,000 contract with the Oakland Oaks of the Pacific Coast League. Jensen said he thought he'd face better competition in the Pacific Coast League, the top minor league of the era, than he would at the bottom of the Yankee farm system. He was right about it being more of a challenge -- he hit an unimpressive .261/.317/.394 in 510 plate appearances with the Oaks.
At the end of the year, the Oaks sold his contract (and that of Billy Martin, another Northern California kid) to the Yankees.
That same year, Jensen married his high school sweetheart, Zoe Ann Olsen, an Olympic diver. (By age 18, she had won 14 national diving championships and a silver medal in the 1948 Olympics.) "Together they looked like a Nordic god and goddess," Sports Illustrated reported. Nicknamed "the sweethearts of sports," they were the Dansby Swanson and Mallory Pugh of their era. More than 1,000 people attended their wedding.
Jensen would start the 1950 season not in the minors but in the Bronx. He joined the Yankees in a time of flux. They though they'd won the 1949 World Series, the Yankees knew they had to make some changes, with 35-year-old Joe DiMaggio nearing the end of his career. And their heir apparent was not Mickey Mantle -- at the time an 18-year-old shortstop playing in the Class C league, the equivalent of A-ball today -- but the 23-year-old Jensen.
But Jensen disappointed, hitting just .171/.247/.300 in 70 at-bats, and only starting in 13 games. Watching from the bench most of the season, Jensen would later lament the lost year of development, saying he'd have been better off playing every day in the Pacific Coast League.
The Yankees won the pennant for a second straight year, and in the World Series he once again was left on the bench. His only action was as a pinch runner in Game 3 as the Yankees swept the Phillies. That "Moonlight Graham" appearance would be his only taste of the post-season in an 11-year career.
The following year would be DiMaggio's last, and Mantle's first. Jensen began the year as the Yankees' starting left fielder and proved he belonged, hitting .296/.371/.509 through the end of July... and then, shockingly, was demoted to Triple-A and replaced with previously forgotten Yankee Bob Cerv.
I can see why they called up Cerv -- the University of Nebraska stand-out was tearing up Triple-A, leading the American Association in batting average (.349), home runs (26), triples (21), RBIs (101), and total bases (261) -- but why demote Jensen, who had a 140 OPS+ in the majors? Maybe the Yankees felt the brash 23-year-old needed to be taken down a peg. In any event, Cerv hit just .214/.333/.250 in August and was sent back to Triple-A, but Jensen also was left down there. He hit .263/.344/.469 and was recalled after the Triple-A season ended, only getting into three games (he went 3-for-9).
Mantle, too, had started the season with the Yankees, and after hitting .260/.341/.423 through the middle of July, was sent down to Triple-A. But he hit .361/.445/.651 in 166 at-bats, and unlike Jensen was back in the bigs by August 24. He would play pretty much every game the rest of the season, hitting .284/.370/.495 in 95 at-bats.
The torch had clearly been passed -- Jensen was no longer the heir apparent to DiMaggio. In the World Series that year, Mantle was the starting right fielder, and Jensen wasn't even on the post-season roster.
Jensen was so disappointed with how the Yankees had treated him in 1951 that he talked to the San Francisco 49ers about switching to pro football, but ultimately decided to stick with baseball.
Never shy about what he said to reporters, Jensen told The Sporting News on October 24, 1951:
"I felt so badly about the treatment that I received from the Yankees that, although I was in New York at the end of the season, I didn't feel like sticking around to even watch the club play in any of the World's Series games."
"I do not feel the Yankees were justified in sending me to the minor leagues. When I was shipped to Kansas City, I was doing as good a job as any Yankee outfielder and better than some of them. I was hitting .296, which was ten points better than Hank Bauer and 30 points better than Joe DiMaggio, Gene Woodling and Mickey Mantle. Yet Casey Stengel didn't give me the chance I felt I deserved."
Despite blasting his manager in the press, Jensen was still the property of the Yankees. That off-season, teams were circling, hoping to pry away the talented but disgruntled outfielder. There were newspaper reports of offers from the St. Louis Browns, the Detroit Tigers, the Philadelphia Athletics, the Washington Senators, the Cleveland Indians, and the Boston Red Sox -- with one rumor being Ted Williams to the Bronx in exchange for Jensen and several other players. (A Red Sox scout called the rumored deal "a lot of hogwash.")
Sportswriters spent the off-season speculating whether DiMaggio would retire, and if he did, whether Jensen or Mantle would take over as the center fielder, as there were still concerns that Mantle, who had hurt his knee in the 1951 World Series, wouldn't be fully recovered by the start of the season.
On Opening Day, April 16, 1952, it was Jackie Jensen in center and Mickey Mantle in right. Jensen went 0-for-5 with a GIDP; Mantle, 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base! Seven games into the season, Jensen was 2-for-17 (.118) and found himself on the bench. He'd never play for the Yankees again. On May 3, the Golden Boy was traded to the Washington Senators along with Spec Shea, Jerry Snyder, and Archie Wilson in exchange for Irv Noren and Tom Upton.
In two years with the Senators, Jensen hit an impressive .276/.359/.407 (112 OPS+), but the team was terrible, and Jensen wasn't happy. Still just 26 years old, he later said he had almost quit after the 1953 season... particularly after a harrowing flight to Japan for a series of exhibition games with a squad of All-Stars that included Yankees Yogi Berra, Eddie Lopat, and Billy Martin. That experience gave Jensen a lifelong fear of flying, a phobia that became so intense eventually he could only fly with the help of sleeping pills... and a hypnotist!
He might have quit if not for the trade on December 9, 1953, that sent him to the Boston Red Sox for pitcher Mickey McDermott and outfielder Tom Umphlett. He was homesick, he hated flying, and he now had two little kids at home. Red Sox general manager Joe Cronin convinced Jensen to come to the Red Sox, telling him that Fenway Park was tailor made for his swing. Cronin was right: Jensen was a career .279/.369/.460 hitter, but .298/.400/.514 at Fenway.
It was in Boston that Jensen finally lived up to the hype, becoming a two-time All-Star and winning the A.L. MVP Award in 1958 and a Gold Glove in 1959. During his seven seasons in Boston, he hit .282/.374/.478 in 4,519 plate appearances. In his MVP season, Jensen hit .286/.396/.535 (148 OPS+) with 31 doubles, 35 home runs, and a league-leading 122 RBIs. During his peak with the Red Sox, 1954 to 1959, Jensen's average season was .285/.378/.490 (127 OPS+) with 28 doubles, 26 home runs, 111 RBIs, 14 stolen bases, and 3.6 bWAR. During those six seasons, no one in the American League -- not Mickey Mantle, not Ted Williams, not Al Kaline -- had more runs batted in than Jackie Jensen.
Of course, Mantle was the far better player -- even in Jensen's MVP season, Mantle had more runs, hits, home runs, walks, and a 188 OPS+ -- but Jensen's 127 OPS+ between 1954 and 1959 would have been an upgrade over the aging Hank Bauer's 110 OPS+ in right or the left field merry-go-round of Norm Siebern (113 OPS+), Irv Noren (107 OPS+), Enos Slaughter (103 OPS+), and previously forgotten Yankee Hector Lopez (101 OPS+). Casey Stengel would later say the Jensen trade was the worst one the Yankees had made while he was manager.
Despite his success, Jensen was sometimes booed by the Boston fans, just as they sometimes booed Ted Williams. There even was an article in Sport magazine, "What Do They Want From Jackie Jensen?", taking Red Sox fans to task for their unreasonably high demands from the Golden Boy. In 1956, in a game at Fenway Park against the Yankees, the hometown fans were razzing Jensen so much that teammates had to restrain him from going into the stands after a fan. Later that same game, Williams misplayed a wind-blown fly ball from Mantle, and the fans booed lustily. The very next play, Williams made a leaping catch at the scoreboard to rob Yogi Berra of a double. But Williams, still furious, spit into the crowd. He was later fined $5,000.
And Jackie was unhappy to be away from home. He and Zoe Ann had bought a house near Lake Tahoe, where they could both ski and golf year-round, as well as hit the casinos. They also had a home in Oakland, and a restaurant there, and each year Jensen hosted a pro-am golf tournament. But the marriage was struggling. Zoe Ann, once nationally known for her Olympic exploits, was frustrated to be a stay-at-home mom in the shadow of her famous husband, and Jackie became angry if she engaged in her favorite outdoor hobbies, suspecting there were men around.
Jensen's fear of flying also had become even more intense. Sometimes he was so drugged up that he had to be carried on and off the plane, fueling rumors that he was a drunk. Other times he took trains or even drove while his teammates flew.
Once again Jensen was talking about retirement, and in Spring Training 1957, the Red Sox allowed him to train with the San Francisco Seals, Boston's Triple-A team, rather than having to go to Florida. But he was still miserable. That year, he told Sports Illustrated:
“In baseball you get to the point where you don’t think you have a family. It just looks like I’m not built for this life like some ballplayers. You are always away from home and you’re lonesome, and as soon as I can, I intend to get out.”
The 32-year-old Jensen announced his retirement after the 1959 season, and he spent 1960 home with Zoe Ann and their children and running his restaurant. But he returned in 1961. After hitting just .130 in April, Jensen took a train from Detroit home to Reno, determined to quit once again. After a week away, he rejoined the team and had six hits in his next 10 at-bats. By the end of the season he was at .263/.350/.392, and this time he quit for good.
After leaving baseball, Jensen invested in real estate and a golf course, but lost most of his money. He then got a job working for a Lake Tahoe casino, was a national spokesman for Camel cigarettes, Wonder Bread, and Gillette, and even tried selling cars. Ironically, Jackie found himself on the road almost as much as he had been as a ballplayer. In 1963, he and Zoe Ann divorced, remarried, and then divorced again.
In 1967, Jensen became a TV sportscaster, married his producer Katharine Cortesi, and eventually teamed up with Keith Jackson calling college football games for ABC and a college baseball coach, first at the University of Nevada-Reno and then at the University of California, and he managed the Red Sox team in the New York Penn League in 1970. In 1977, Jackie and Katharine moved to Virginia and started a Christmas tree farm while he coached baseball at a military academy. About five years later, on July 14, 1982, he died of a heart attack at age 55.
You Don't Know Jack(ie):
In 1958, Jensen told Sports Illustrated that the biggest thrill of his career wasn't being an All-American or an All-Star, it wasn't winning an MVP or a World Series. "The biggest is having played in the same outfield with both DiMaggio and Williams."

2023.06.01 14:00 autotldr ‘Unprecedented’ Nova Scotia wildfires expected to worsen, officials warn

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 70%. (I'm a bot)
Officials in the province of Nova Scotia say unprecedented wildfires that have forced thousands from their homes will keep growing despite the "Water, raw muscle power and air power" deployed by fire crews.
The largest ever fire recorded in Nova Scotia was in 1976 and measured 13,000 hectares.
"We've got more fires than we have resources to support them," Scott Tingley, manager of forest protection at Nova Scotia's Department of Natural Resources, said during a news conference, adding the province is prioritizing safety and human life ahead of infrastructure.
On Wednesday, the province's natural resources minister said the conditions Nova Scotia in are "Unprecedented" and expected to worsen.
He said Barrington Lake fire had so far destroyed 40 structures, but added the size and speed of the fire made it difficult for officials to gauge the true scope of damage.
Officials are hopeful that rains forecast for the weekend will slow the largest fires and give crews a better chance at controlling the blazes.

2023.06.01 13:47 More-Head6459 Defending the Draft 2023: WASHINGTON COMMANDERS

Defending the Draft: 2023 Washington Commanders 8-8-1
This 2023 season will be the most interesting for the Commanders franchise in a long long time. We enter this season with more uncertainty than I have ever been a part of, however, the one thing the fan base is certain of... is the future is brighter. Dan Snyder purchased the franchise in 1999 and subsequently done nothing but run a blue blood franchise into the ground. This team has lacked direction for a long time and a large part of that was due to Dan Snyder's meddling in the day-to-day football operations of the team. Starting his ownership with signing washed up HOF veterans, to then overspending in free agency (Albert Haynesworth is arguably the worst free agent signing of all time), drug scandal with thetraining staff, the mishandling of the RG3 and Kirk Cousins situation, Not resigning Trent Williams, and lastly we've now reached tumultuous time where his off the field issues have hung a dark cloud over a once proud franchise. Although, lol, his most egregious mistake may be hiring Jim Zorn as head coach. It's egregious that his only punishment is a 6 billion dollar payout for his franchise. I hope the banks bury him and he faces the deserved legal actions. As of now there had been an agreement to sell the franchise to 76'rs and NJ Devils owner, Josh Harris.... and is 20ish members of his parliament. We await to hear news of the reviews from the NFL financial committee to close out the process. Last news I came across was he has cut down the number of minority owners to 20. It will be a pleasure when this agreement is finalized. He could be a terrible owner, but it would still be an upgrade from Synder. Harris, seemingly has been a hands off owner and properly allows the people he's hired to operate the team. This last sports season he's had both of his teams deep in the playoff hunt. This season will be interesting. A lot of questions all around: Sam Howell? Chase Young? Ron Rivera? Eric Bienemy? Josh Harris? I'm not sure of those answers, but I'm very excited to find them out.
HC- Ron Rivera OC- Eric Bieniemy DC- Jack Del Rio
Key Additions: Eric Bieniemy
Ole' Riverboat Ron Rivera is back and going into his 4th season with the Washington Commanders, hopefully his last. I believe Ron Rivera is a leader of men, but I highly question his actual coaching skills and team building. I've currently seen enough of this coaching regime and front office to safely say let's move on. There's been several things that I believed were firable offenses.... the Carson Wentz trade. Some rumors have said that this was a Snyder push. Not entirely positive, but Ron bragged that it was his call. Our team at that point was not a qb away from being really good, let alone a Carson Wentz level of qb. The next fireable offense was starting Wentz over Hienke when the playoffs were on the line. Wentz ended up being benched for Hienke, but it was too little too late. The next fireable offense was not realizing we were eliminated from the playoffs. Going into the last week of the season Ron planned on starting Hieneke. Pretty odd to not know you're out of the playoffs, let alone to test Sam Howell out for next season. Additionally, there's been some pretty questionable roster creation decisions. I absolutely hate the versatile secondary and offensive line philosophy. We currently have a patch work offensive line that has the means to fluctuate between average to below average. Not a single player on the line is top 5 at their respected position. Two years ago we had a top 10 o-line, but that had Brandon Sherff playing like a top 5 guard and Charles Leno having his best season. Our o-line took a significant step back this past season and now looks to be our biggest weakness. Ron has shown to trust his own board and has reached (according to the consensus big board) with every single pick so far. People mistake 2019 as one of his drafts ( Sweat, McLaurin, Holcomb), but he was hired at the end of the season. Take this with a grain of salt as it takes at least 3 years to properly review a draft. Rons 1st round picks have been the following: 2020 pick 2 Chase Young- the correct pick at the time, but hard to botch the 2nd overall pick, 2021 pick 19 Jamin Davis- hated the pick at the time, too early for a linebacker... let a lone a project. On tape he looked lost a lot and made up for it with his elite athleticism. He's shown progress, but nothing showing he's worthy of the pick. 2022 pick 16 Jahan Dotson- looks to be an absolute baller, had him ranked above Olave in the pre-draft process. Was a slight reach above the consensus board, but flashed high end ability. Davis has been the only mistake in the 1st round thus far. When I say mistake I don't necessarily mean player, but the roster building philosophy. Whether reaching on Phidarian Mathis in the 2nd round of 2022. Lol, he was older than Payne coming out of the draft, one year of good production, and was taken a round too early. In the next round Brian Robinson was taken and was really just a body. Haven't really seen anything elite with him so far and was a meh pick. John Bates in the 4th round was egregious. Now I have to give credit where it's due. Kam Curl was an absolute steal and can solidify himself as top 5 safety this season if he continues to play this well. Our other starting safety in Darrick Forest also had a lot of bright spots playing this past season.
Arguably, our best offseason move was signing Eric Bieniemy. I'm absolutely excited. Forget everything about him not calling the plays. Reports from OTA's shows his hands on approach and full control of the offense. One of my favorites things I've heard is he is using OTA's to see what the players can do and crafting the offense to their abilities. Time and time again (Scott Turner) you see coaches say this is the offense and not change anything to match the players strengths. We don't know for sure how the offense will look, but if it's anything close to the motion west coast offense the Chiefs have... boy lessssss gooooooo. Jack Del Rio has been up-and-down in his time in Washington. He's had two very slow starts with the defense to start year, however, they've finished strong and kept his job safe. This is really the no excuse year and everyone needs to show up amd show out.
Free Agency:
Key Departures:
Taylor Hieneke- signed with the Falcons
Cole Holcolm- signed with the Steelers
Bobby McCain- signed with the Giants
Carson Wentz- TBD
J.D. McKissic- TBD
Trai Turner TBD
Andrew Norwell- will be released when he passes a physical
In my personal oppinion, the only player that hurt losing in free agency was Cole Holcolm. Linebacker is our one weak spot on defense, however, not resigning Holcolm shows Ron's belief in Jaymin Davis's progression. Cole was limited to 7 games last season and has yet to truly break out. Always played very solid and losing him downgraded the position. We've moved on from both starting guards from last year in Norwell and Turner (previously on the Panthers). Both players were liabilities last season and the guard position was easily upgradeable. Bonny McCain was a solid do it all for is player. Lined up at corner, safety, and nickel throughout the season. Hieneke was a big fan favorite, but was never the answer. We thank you for your service though. Carson Wentz, fuck you. Loved J.D. and his time here, suffered a major injury. Not sure if he gets picked up hy another team.
Key Additions:
Andrew Wiley- 3 years for 24 million, 12 guaranteed. Previously on the Chiefs
Nick Gates- 3 years for 16.5 million, 8 million guaranteed. Previously on the Giants
Jacoby Brissett- 1 year for 8 million, 7.5 million guaranteed. Previously on the Browns
Cody Barton- 1 year for 3.5 million, 3.5 million guaranteed. Previously on the Seahawks
Simple. In free agency the Commanders did not overspend and tackled positions of need. None of the players signed are top 5 at their position, however, they could all possibly end up being upgrades to what we have. The most interesting is Andrew Wiley. He allowed 9 sacks (tied for 3rd most)... but man he put on the performance of his life in the superbowl. Another stat that favors him is pass block win-rate, which measure if a lineman can sustain a block for 2.5 seconds. Wylie ranked 9th in that stat last season. I translate that stat to mean can a lineman sustain a block against thr initial rush and counter move off the snap. After that 2.5 seconds the ball is thrown or the play breaks down. Another key factor to this signing is it kicks Samuel Cosmi inside to guard. Cosmi has shown flashes being a high end lineman and I expect him to be even better kicking to guard from right tackle. Guard was our weakest position on the line and Wylie signing helped to upgrade the RG position. Nick Gates is expected to he our starting center. He's coming off of a brutal leg injury that made him consider retirement. Has played guard and center and has some positional flexibility. Jacoby Brissett is the best backup qb in thr league. A solid signing if Howell doesn't pan out. Just a solid game manager that doesn't commit many turnovers. Cody Barton is another unproven guy. Last year was his first year with significant reps. Bobby Wagner leaving in FA and Jordyn Brooks injury made em the guy. He showed flashes of coverage abilities and had a lot of tackles. The tackles weren't necessarily a product of his abilities and more so of cleaning up on a bad run defense team. I've read some notes that he has trouble getting off of blocks. Honestly, haven't watched much on the guy, but reports were he played solid down the stretch.
The Draft:
Link to all RAS scores for our draft class
Round 1:16 Emmanuel Forbes 6'1" 174 lbs. Mississippi St
Stats: 58 targets, 31 catches allowed for 284 yards (23 yards a game), 3 tds allowed/ 6 ints, 9 forced incompletions, 2 dropped ints, 46 tackles.
PFF Grade: 87.2
If being a 160 pounds is your only knock then I think you're doing something alright. The word on the street is he is already up to 174 pounds. You wouldnt realize hes only 174 pounds by the way he plays the run. Hes not scared to hit and flies ro the ball. Although, he does struggle to get off of blocks. Emmanuel Forbes, per PFF, had the highest rating in man coverage last season, albeit the snap count was very miniscule. Emmanuel Forbes is a lanky corner than played a lot of zone coverage and is a very good scheme fit for what we do. I like the pick and I'm not upset about taking him over Gonzalez, who also had his own question marks. Forbes set a NCAA record with 6 pick sixes. A lot of those were the right place at the right time, but when you have that high of a number than you're doing something right.
Forbes is one of the best ballhawks in this class. Over the course of his three-year career, he came down with 13 interceptions. That’s four more than the next closest Power Five cornerback since 2020. Forbes was unbelievably dominant in man coverage in 2022, giving up only three catches while also snagging three interceptions. He also only allowed a 20% completion rate in man, the lowest among FBS
Remarkably lanky frame. Limbs for days — ideal for a corner.Has bounce like a hooper. He can challenge any catch point necessary. Elite ability to locate the football. All six of his interceptions came in man coverage.
Still a stick. Not much mass on his frame. Has eyes that get him in trouble. Some freelance tendencies on tape.Can get bowled over in the run game. Mediocre tackler over the course of his career.
Round 2: 47 Jartavius "Quan" Martin 5'11". 194 lbs Illinois
Stats: 74 targets, 42 catches allowed, 611 yards allowed, 3 tds allowed, 3 ints, 15 forced incompletions, 2 dropped ints, 4 missed tackles, 64 tackles.
PFF Grade: 73.2
Quan is a beast. I thought he was the 2nd best nickel prospect in the draft and a better deep safety than Brian Branch. Martin absolute rockets around the field in the run game. He started his career at cornerback before transitioning into the safety/nickel position. Another elite athlete that is a perfect fit for our Buffalo Nickel defense.
Martin came to Illinois and immediately started as a true freshman in 2018. He originally started off as an outside corner before becoming more of a slot corner recently. He had arguably his best year in 2022, as his 15 forced incompletions were tied for the sixth-most among Power-Five corners. Martin’s 91.0 run-defense grade also led all Power Five cornerbacks. While he played corner at Illinois, we project him more as a safety for the next level.
Explosive flat-foot breaks. Tremendous burst. Forceful and reliable tackler - 7 misses on the last 129 attempts last two seasons.Fills like a mac truck in the run game. Wants to come downhill and play in the backfield.
Pure man skills are work in progress. Overagressive and liability to bite on fakes. cons On the lighter side for an around the line of scrimmage player. Gets caught with his eyes in the backfield on run
Round 3: 97 Ricky Stromberg 6'3" 306 lbs Arkansas
Stats: 9 impact blocks, 11 qb hurries, 0 qb hits, 0 sacks allowed
PFF Grade: 82.4
Nasty. Another guard experience player that spent his last two years at the center position. Award winner of the Jacob's Blocking Trophy for the SEC'S most outstanding blocker award. This is a solid player that has started since he was freshman in the SEC. He's been battle tested since he was kid and has improved every year. He has some knocks about his play strength, but a NFL program should get em to where he needs to be.
Stromberg was a three-star recruit in the 2019 class and started for the Razorbacks as a true freshman, mostly at right guard. He moved inside to center for his sophomore season and spent his final three college seasons there. Stromberg’s 82.4 overall grade and 83.7 run-blocking grade in 2022 both ranked fourth among all centers in college football, and his nine big-time blocks were tied for fifth among FBS centers. Not to mention, Stromberg had an incredible performance at the NFL combine.
Does not want to let blocks go. Can see him straining his butt of to stay engaged on tape. Tons of experience against top competition. Four-year starter with 3,121 career snaps.
Forward lean gets going on the move, making him liable to topple over. Has wide hands to initiate contact in pass protection before resetting. Leaves himself open for stronger rushers.Unimpressive musculature, which leaves questions about how he'll anchor against NFL strength.
Round 4: Braeden Daniels 6'4" 296 lbs Utah STATS:
0 sacks allowed, 1 qb hit allowed, 14 hurries allowed.
PFF GRADE: 72.2 at tackle, 2021 84.4 at guard.
Braeden Daniels is another tackle/guard hybrid, with starting experience across his college career. This guy is on the lighter side but that allows him to be an Explosive athlete. Very raw at the tackle position and will be a developmental guy. I'd like to give em a try as our swing tackle and see how he performs. He was one of the quickest offensive lineman I've seen off the tape and that athleticism will let him climb to the next level. Even on the lightweight side I'd hate to see this guy running at me on the second level.
Daniels is an experienced veteran who commanded the Utes’ offensive line for the past few years. He originally started as a guard before switching over to tackle. His best season came in 2021, as he put up an 84.4 PFF grade. Given his time on the interior, Daniels is at his best when run blocking, and his run-blocking grade in 2021 was an elite 89.1. He still held his own as a pass protector, allowing only five sacks in his Utah career.
Explodes out of his stance. Arguably the quickest get off in the offensive line class. Linebackers don't want to see him climbing. Gets on them before they can even react. Drive in his lower half to still move the line of scrimmage despite being under 300 pounds.
Wild into contact. He approaches blocks with the adjustment ability of a freight train. consDoesn't bring his hands with him. Clean engagements are rare on tape. Very light by NFL standards (294 pounds at combine).
Round 5: 137 KJ Henry 6'4" 260 lbs Clemson
51 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1 FF, 6 pass deflections, 50 qb pressures, 31 qb hurries, 14 qb hits.
Loved this pick. Henry was a 5 star recruit coming out of high-school and decided to attend Clemson University. With Clemson having deep lines it took him a couple of years to get on the field. The stats look odd when you only see 3.5 sacks, however, the 50 qb pressures is the key stat. Seems more like bad luck that the sack numbers weren't high. Clemson's whole d-line underperformed (Bresee, Murphey) and they should have picked up more sacks from Henry who was the best DE on that team last year. The team clearly liked him as we traded back up for him. He's not elite athlete, but he is an elite hands guy. Almost had that veteran presence in college. High motor and will immediately make an impact as a rotational de, a position that sorely needed an upgrade.
On a team with Myles Murphy, you can easily make the case that KJ Henry was Clemson's best defensive end this year, as he posted better PFF grades than Murphy in every category and even generated 19 more pressures. The only problem is That Henry is 24 years old while Murphy is only 21. Therefore, Henry was expected to produce this well against younger competition. Nonetheless, this doesn’t mean that he can’t still improve. If Henry's play this season is any indication of his potential, he can still have a great NFL career as an edge defender.
Heavy hands that are so well refined. Uses them independently to use combination moves.Utilizes hesitations and head fakes so well to catch linemen off-balance. Coaches rave about the type of teammate he is. He is the type of player you want in the locker room.
First step that's unimposing for a rusher on the smaller side. Late bloomer. Wasn't even a starter until this past fall. One of the oldest prospects in the class. Already 24 years old.
Round 6: 193 Chris Rodriguez 6'0" 217 lbs Kentucky
STATS: 8 games played, 175 attempts, 904 rushing yards, 6 tds, 5.2 ypa, 5 catches, 41 rec yards.
Chris Rodriguez is a PFF darling and was rated as the 7th best running back. This guy's is a pure one cut, run you over, power back. There's not much finesse to his game, but there's highlights of dragging guys 10-yards down the field. He does not posses break away speed, but he will get you 40 yards. He was suspended 4 games due to a dui and he may have been drafted higher on am abysmal Kentucky team. An extra 4 games of stats against SEC competition and no suspension may have jumped him into the 4th round. This was an Eric Bienemy guy and they brought him in because of that. Isiah Pacheco was another EB guy.
Rodriguez is a powerful runner, but he lacks the burst and creativity to become anything more than a downhill grinder. He has the size and mentality to do the dirty work between the tackles, but it could be a challenge for him to get to and through the hole quickly in the NFL. He’s a physical blitz protector, so teams might envision a role for him as a second-half battering ram and third-down quarterback protector.
Two-time team captain. Thick frame with ability to pick up tough yards. Makes tacklers feel his size at impact. Stays square getting through downhill cuts. Low success rate guaranteed for arm-tacklers. Stays on his feet through heavy angle strikes. Allows lead blockers to do their work. Steps up with force against incoming rushers.
Below-average burst getting through line of scrimmage. Lacks finesse to navigate tight run lanes. Change of direction is heavy. One-speed running style is easy to track for linebackers. Pad level is a little tall as run-finisher. Inconsistent finding assignment versus blitz.
Round 7: 233 Andre Jones 6'4" 248 lbs Louisiana
STATS: 7 sacks, 5 qb hits, 20 hurries.
Andre Jones was another hybrid de/lb player coming out last year. He possess 34 1/4" arms which is an elite number for his size. May move to LB, but I'm not sure that's the right move with a 4.71 40-yard dash. He doesn't have much a pass rush move set playing a hybrid role, but does use length to his advantage. A solid developmental pick.
Shows a natural feel for setting up blockers and getting them off-balance. His hands are active and violent, and Jones quickly disengages with blockers and counters when his initial move stalls. Possesses accurate snap anticipation and timing to beat blockers off the edge. Offers some versatility, rushing from a two-and three-point stance with the playing speed to stand up in space.Flashes strength as a bull rusher and his energy doesn't plateau. Showed initial quickness and good flexibility to dip and bend. Jones has active hands and suddenness to his movements, demonstrating the ability to counter inside. Has fluid footwork to redirect, reverse momentum and close with a burst. Regularly first off the ball with good snap anticipation. He’s a high-effort pass rusher with an impressive combination of length and speed.
Jones has to develop a counter move or two in the pass rush, and Jones needs to make better use of his hands. He lacks the speed of a chase and- tackle guy. He lacks twitch as a pass rusher and lacks the feet and flexibility to threaten around the edge. Jones also shows some stiffness when trying to bend the edge, often getting pushed past the pocket — he seems more comfortable countering back inside.
Draft Summary:
This was my favorite Ron Rivera/Martin Mayhew draft thus far. Going into the draft, offensive line, cornerback, and quarterback were our three biggest needs. Drafting in the middle of the round really took us out of the olineman race. The last one that interested me was Broderick Jones and he went off the board when the Steelers traded up. At that point in the draft it really left us with going cornerback. The Forbes pick was received negatively due to Christian Gonzalez being available. Both players will be viewed under the microscope throughout their careers. I'm fine with Forbes pick though. Another lanky cornerback who was an elite athlete. I did have Gonzalez rated higher going into the draft, but he slid for a reason. A lot of his tape shows him not necessarily being an elite cornerback, but being an elite athlete that plays corner. Forbes actually showed the athleticism, corner skills, and ballhawking ability. Some additional knocks against Gonazalez and his love of the game. Quan Martin was our biggest surprise pick of the draft. A lot of people had him going in the 3rd round, but I think the 2nd was a fine spot. Mayhew after the draft said he wish we were more aggressive at times, which I translated as not getting Brian Branch that went several picks before us. I think Quan was the backup option, but I like him as much as Branch. I think Quan will be a better deep safety and Bramch will be a better nickel. Liked Quan alot, but felt we should have gone o-line at this pick. Ocyrus Torrence would've been a sweet pick here. I think if that happened, the consensus view on our draft would shoot up. Quan will immediately via for playing time as our base defense is essentially a 4-2-5. Kendall Fuller was our only above average corner and now we turned our secondary into a strength. Ricky Stromberg and Braeden Daniels were our next two picks. I like Stromberg’s tape a lot and think by next he will be a solid starter at guard or center. Braeden Daniels will be a nice depth piece and if he's able to tame his play he could develop into a starter. Fun player to watch. KJ Henry was an awesome pick and can see him being a nice rotational piece. Good pick at an underrated area of need on our defense. RB wasn't a pressing need, but it's an underrated area of weakness. I think Brian Robinson is about as average of rb as you will see starting in the NFL. I wouldn't be surprised if Rodriguez slowly cut into Robinson's role over the next two years. Antonio Gibson has had some solid season, but has a severe fumbling problem. Andre Jones will be a depth piece that will need development moving forward.
Offseason summary:
The biggest question of our offseason was our owner, which now appears resolved. Our second biggest question... was who was our starting qb? Sam Howell. Ron preached all offseason that he was going with Howell and I'll be damned, he did. Brissett was good qb to bring in, not someone that would necessarily turn the offseason into a battle, but can be a starter if called upon. Really a true backup qb. I'm all in on the Sam Howell train. I love it for a multitude of reasons. One, he balls out and we have our qb of the future, two he plays well enough we give him another season and maybe Ron is out and we get a high draft pick, three he bombs and we fire Ron Rivera and go for Caleb Williams next season. If anything, it gives us a direction for our future. I'm ready for Ron to go and think he's only as good as his coordinators. I'm concerned that EB AND Howell turn the offense around Ron gets resigned and EB takes a head coaching role... then the offense regressed. Additionally, I don't want Ron to get credit for drafting Howell. It was 5th round pick, you and every team passed on him for 4 rounds. If Howell is that good... it's not because Ron was a genius and drafted him. Very similar to Seattle taking Russel. I am excited about EB being here and think he's the real deal. I will give Ron credit for allowing him to run his own offense as he sees fit. OTA's have shown that EB is pushing his guys hard and is trying to see what he can do with the offense. We really do have elite playmaker and I'm most excited to see what he can do with Antonio Gibson. I can see his role being that of Jerrick McKinnon, with more athleticism. Sam Howell has shown a lot of progress since his rookie season. Had issues with his foot work, but has shown vast improvements. We only have 1 preseason game and 1 NFL game of tape on him. I liked what he showed. When watching tape you could see him going through his progression, man absolutely saved the day wish his escapability- was under pressure the whole game, threw two beautiful deep passes, and won the game. He did throw one bad pick, but was under pressure and playing hero ball. He had one week of practice with the starters, now he has a whole offseason. Our defense should be a top 5 unit next season and we only got better. Chase Young should be fully healthy and he's the X-factor for the number one overall defense. He comes out plays to his full potential then he could be a mid teens sack guy. If we have that sort of production and Sam Howell plays well than we can compete for the decision. Big if though. Our secondary really lacked a 2nd option, Benjamin St Juyce has shown some flashes but didn't seeze the role last year. Now on paper he's the number and that's very solid. We return two top 6 defensive tackles and Montez Swear is one of the most underrated players in the league. He's yet to have a high sack season, but is very much that Jadaveon Ckowney type of player in the run game. Big question mark season for Jaymin Davis. We knew he needed development, but it's been slower than previously thought. Down the stretch he showed flashes that he was coming into his own and now is his year. He's one of the best athletes at linebacker in the league and his ceiling is very very high. Overall I predict we will go 10-7 and challenge for a wild card spot. That record can fluctuate each one, but I'm calling the improvement now. We went 8-8-1 with bottom 3 qb play. The defense got better, we hired a better offensive coordinator, Howell will at the minimum be slightly better than Hienke last season, we didn't lose any major pieces and had a solid all around draft. I'm truly excited to watch how our future plays out.

2023.06.01 13:39 FreeSanubis How "safe" am I at 15mph?

My scooter has a top speed of 15mph. I just use it for commuting purposes which is only less than 5 miles a day. I always wear a bicycle helmet, fingerless gloves, and a reflective vest. Recently I decided to get some more safety gear. So I got Triple 8's elbow and knee pads, and wrist guards. I wore it all today, but the elbow and knee pads are uncomfortable as hell. I'm thinking of just ditching them. I'll still wear the wrist guards at least. If I have a crash at 15mph, how screwed am I without elbow and knee pads? I do not plan on getting a faster scooter in the future. 15mph is plenty for me. I generally feel pretty confident at riding my scooter, and I don't do anything stupid or crazy. Like I said, I just want to get to and from work in one piece.

2023.06.01 13:33 autotldr ‘Unprecedented’ Nova Scotia wildfires expected to worsen, officials warn Canada

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 70%. (I'm a bot)
Officials in the province of Nova Scotia say unprecedented wildfires that have forced thousands from their homes will keep growing despite the "Water, raw muscle power and air power" deployed by fire crews.
The largest ever fire recorded in Nova Scotia was in 1976 and measured 13,000 hectares.
"We've got more fires than we have resources to support them," Scott Tingley, manager of forest protection at Nova Scotia's Department of Natural Resources, said during a news conference, adding the province is prioritizing safety and human life ahead of infrastructure.
On Wednesday, the province's natural resources minister said the conditions Nova Scotia in are "Unprecedented" and expected to worsen.
He said Barrington Lake fire had so far destroyed 40 structures, but added the size and speed of the fire made it difficult for officials to gauge the true scope of damage.
Officials are hopeful that rains forecast for the weekend will slow the largest fires and give crews a better chance at controlling the blazes.

Previous month
You don’t need to be a philosopher to realize how fickle and, er, earnings can be. This echoes with twice the strength in the case of affiliate marketing. Even as an isolated $$$ snapshot, hitting $2.6k is still money.

Quick stats

Realistically, if I didn’t have some heavy-hitting returns and slow shipments, the site would be at $3k. The sharp increase is due to a temporary enrollment which boosts most of my niches.
It’ll end soon.
But anyways, man. Managed to score the highest-earning day I’ve had since looks at Excel tables...January 2018. Paid off my new smartphone (the last one’s motherboard suddenly died 1.5 years in, wtf!) in a single earnings day.

The Salty Taste of Gentle Rejection

Previously, I've mentioned how I’d like to slowly shift to private affiliate offers. In other words, working directly with the brands – be it on their own sales channels/sites, or hitting $$ targets on retailers/platforms they’re present on.
In May I reached out to a brand I dig a lot. I own several of their products. They’re some crème de la crème shit, truly fantastic quality. They also have a trendy, engaging, creative online presence.
The peeps were friendly, but let me know I need to hit a bit more sales to work directly with them. They did dig what I do, though, so hey, at least there’s some consolation prize stuff going on.
I have a few semi-informative articles that I could tie into this particular brand; will give them a go later on. >.>

Google’s Puberty Tantrums Bloom Under the May Moon

There were three (!) Google algorithm shifts during May. One of them was more substantial, causing GSC to lag for 60+ hours. I saw some daily shifts, but nothing too serious.
I really think a lot of juststarter newbies are getting shafted with how Google behaves now. Things back in 2016-2020 really were more...dunno, more foreseeable in a way?
We had 2-4 more substantial updates and that was it. Some of them were ridiculous enough to be on the top of /all like this huge thread during the hilariously idiotic May 2020 update.
Going back to affiliate with this project, I now realize how much shit is happening on a frequent basis. Between PR, QC, the usual core updates, and such monthly fluctuations, it’s a pinball of a motherfucker.

Woe The Infoe

In early May I wrote an info article. 4 hours later it attracted its first comments; it has been gathering 40-60 organic visits/day. It’s probably the fastest-rising article I’ve had on this site yet and I can see it hitting 100/day soonish.
But man do I get BORED out of my mind writing info articles. B O R E D.
Unfortunately, I’ve had two duds among my other recent posts – the strictly affiliate ones. The articles are hitting the 100 visits/month threshold I consider alrighto for heavy buyer-intent articles. However, I thought they’d be at least in the 150-200 range.
(This matters a lot with some articles. To give you some perspective, the moment I hit 200 visits/month on one of my most aggressive posts, it started earning $180-200/month).

June's Perspectives

The temporary monetary boost will last through some parts of June. I expect to be around $2-2.5k until returning back to normal afterwards. You can never know how things go; it’s just a projection.
I’ll be happy if I write even one or two articles in June. Shit’s going to be battery-draining-levels of busy:
= 8 (!!) birthdays in my social circles.
= Preparing a short story for an initiative I was invited to: First time writing fiction in 4 years, it’s been ABOUT. FUCKING. TIME.
= Being a tour guide to my friend’s wife’s sister over mid-June.
= Gotta start another physiotherapy program for my hand.
Still, I’m gonna feel guilty if I don’t add at least something to the site. It’s like not doing your homework back in a way, right?

Song of the month

Dude, I got all nostalgic bout Enter Shikari. The boys still cook up great records, but those 2007-2012 releases were the sign of the times back then.
However, my best-best-best memory with them was the dusky, small concert hall being engulfed by "The Appeal & The Mindsweep Part I" intro a few years back.

2023.06.01 13:27 HBB360 What has your experience been like with the G513 Carbon?

I got a G513 with linear switches as my first mechanical keyboard around 2018 and it's been my primary keyboard since then, save for the last 10ish months during which I have been away from home at University.
My main issue with this board are the flimsy stalks holding the keycaps in place. I replaced all the keycaps last year around March because a lot of keys were barely held on and would pop-off if I typed slightly more aggressively, this process involved heating a paperclip with a lighter and melting it into the broken off piece of keycap so I could get it out of the hole on the switch before I could get the new cap in. The whole thing was a pain in the ass BUT the most annoying thing is I haven't used it much since then (just over the summer last year and the few weeks since I've returned home from Uni) and the left arrow key just fell off with two broken-off stalks! I don't think the plastic should be breaking this quickly considering the new set of keycaps is only about a year old and hasn't been used full-time during that period.
The second and more serious issue that's making me look at replacements is that some of the keys are starting to register multiple kkeystrokes (it just did it!) or not registering them at all. I'm not sure what the design life of the romer G switches is so it may just be their time but I'm still disappointed. I really like this keyboard and love the feel of the Romer G switches as well as how the RGB only illuminates the top of the keycap without leaking all around for a much cleaner look but seeing these two issues is making me worried about replacing this with another Logitech Mechanical Keyboard.
What has your experience been with the G513, how old is your board and how has it held up?

2023.06.01 13:24 Gangiskhan Artist #104 Kendrick Lamar

Bio from The Festival Voice
Artist Biography by Daniel Karasek
Kendrick Lamar is the most acclaimed rap artist of his generation. He was born in Compton and grew up surrounded by hip-hop culture and gang activity. At a young age, he started writing stories and poems, leading him to rap. When Kendrick was 16 he made a name for himself as K. Dot in 2003 and released his debut mixtape The Hub City Threat: Minor of the Year. The release was impressive enough to get Top Dawg Entertainment to work with him and propel his career. Kendrick kept releasing music under K. Dot through 2009, and that same year he joined the group Black Hippy whose members included Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, and ScHoolboy Q. The members of Black Hippy often appeared on each other’s mixtapes and albums. In 2010, Overly Dedicated was released under Kendrick Lamar as his first commercial release that hit the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart. The next year he released his first official album Section.80 which hit number 113 on the Billboard 200. During a concert in late 2011, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and the Game dubbed him “The New King of the West Coast” which was sealed when Dre signed Kendrick to his Aftermath label. In 2012, Kendrick released his major-label debut Good Kid, M.A.A.D City which entered the Billboard 200 at number two. Three of the singles, “Swimming Pools (Drank),” “Poetic Justice,” and “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” made it into the Top Ten of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Chart and went Top 40 Pop. The album got four Grammy nominations. Kendrick kept with the grind until 2014 when he released his single “i” which won Grammy Awards for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song. The next year he released the album To Pimp a Butterfly which featured Snoop Dogg, Thundercat, and George Clinton and topped the Billboard 200. The album won a Grammy for Best Rap Album. Kendrick’s next two singles “Alright” and “These Walls” took Grammy wins for Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. In 2017, Kendrick’s album DAMN arrived with the single “HUMBLE” which became his first number-one pop hit. All 14 songs off the album entered the Hot 100. The album also won more Grammy awards for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap/Sung Performance. In 2018, the album won the Pulitzer Prize for Music and was the first time the judges recognized a work outside the genres of classical and jazz. If all this wasn’t enough, Kendrick’s single “Kings Dead” made him a 13-time Grammy winner for Best Rap Performance. Kendrick kept pushing through with wins with his most recent album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers arriving in 2022.

2023.06.01 13:15 Breserk Help wanted: understanding terrible llama.cpp w/ CUDA inference speed (less then 1token/minute) on powerful machine (A6000)

Hi all,
I've been searching all over for help w/ this. I'm sorry if this is the wrong place. I'm willing to pay for whoever can help me.
My goal is to reach token generation speed of 10+/second w/ a model of 30B params.
I've tried to follow the llama.cpp readme instructions precisely in order to run llama.cpp with GPU acceleration, but I can't seem to get any relevant inference speed. I'm currently at less than 1 token/minute.

my installation steps:

  1. Provisioned an A6000 machine from jarvislabs.ai. It has 48GB VRAM, 32 GB RAM, 100GB SSD. It comes preinstalled with CUDA toolkit, python3, git and anything needed to get started, as far as I'm aware
  2. Cloned latest llama.cpp with git clone https://github.com/ggerganov/llama.cpp
  3. Run make LLAMA_CUBLAS=1 since I have a CUDA enabled nVidia graphics card
  4. Downloaded a 30B Q4 GGML Vicuna model (It's called Wizard-Vicuna-30B-Uncensored.ggmlv3.q4_0.bin)
My inference command
./main -m path/to/Wizard-Vicuna-30B-Uncensored.ggmlv3.q4_0.bin -n 50 -ngl 2000000 -p "Hey, can you please "
Expected behavior
Inference works with at least 1 token / second (maybe even 10/second with this "beefy" machine?)
Actual behavior
Inference works, but token generation speed is about 1 token / minute.
llama.cpp claims that work is being offloaded to GPU

2023.06.01 13:13 Beautiful-Page3135 Trash can started working

We upgraded from the OG 4G box (we were beta testers and kept that box for years) to the trash can last November. They sent us the trash can and it worked fine for a month, then started doing the restart thing everyone seems to run into. I called T-Mobile and they sent a replacement.
A month later, same thing. Started busting through this sub for answers and tried the external fans. They worked for most of the issue, but it would still happen a couple times a day. Got another replacement. Third trash can, at this point.
For the most part it worked fine. Maybe once a week it would restart, always between 7:30 and 8pm. Changing its location, the outlet, the power adapter, the fans, etc. didn't seem to do anything. But, we were down to a very occasional restart and that was acceptable enough since we really only use it for streaming apps and the game consoles.
Then, about a month ago, it just...stopped not working. No restarts, no random speed dips leading to sudden drops in streaming quality. The top speed hasn't changed, but the connection and the hardware itself are certainly more stable. We changed nothing.
Maybe they pushed a firmware update or something, I don't know. Has anyone else noticed a sudden spike in reliability from theirs?

2023.06.01 13:11 Zeezaduim uni rep is one of the best teams it just needs skill

Uni rep rn is really strong however unlike most other top teams it does need a good amount of skill Let’s take god ki for example in that team you have ugb and rose both of them are easy to use and op Since rose can spam ult cards / blue cards / paralyze you / poison / bleed / blast armou one shot /etc And ugb has a broken green card / the best gauge (debatable ) /a lot of blue cards / rlly high damage and defence /type nul / card draw speed and more after 60 secs / etc So I guess you can already see where am going so in short whatever you do with them will mostly work .
As for Uni rep the closest thing to no skill is ultra hits time stop and that can be countered by a tap or type disadvantage The units in uni rep like : rev Ui , gofreiza , roshi , whatever the new dude that’s red is ,kyawei all have one weakness which is their defence . ( LF 17 and new jiren are left out cuz they are rlly tanky) Whoever they all have something they specialize in for example rev Ui and gofreiza do alot of damage meanwhile roshi and kyawei are amazing supports . Luckily uni rep also has something to help with the low defence by that I mean LF 17 and new jiren. Both are amazing units that have good defence and decent damage with 17 also having the ability to support the team even when offscreen. So in short uni rep is amazing but needs someone who knows who to use and when to use for it to work
This is my personal opinion am not amazing players but I think I can tell uni rep is amazing

2023.06.01 13:05 snakesnake9 Diesel or petrol?

So I've been doing a lot of diesel vs petrol engine research recently, and am still getting to conflicting results.
Taking a step back, I will need a car that will be mostly used for shorter urban journeys, but on some/most weekends may see some longer trips out of town, and likely mileage is c10,000km per annum. On Reddit people keep telling me to get a petrol instead, and a lot of websites seem to recommend getting a petrol over a diesel if I'm not doing that many miles. However when doing additional research, I'm not quite getting to the same conclusion.
Diesel issue number 1: I read that the DPFs or diesel particulate filters that are fitted on modern cars need the vehicle to run at high speeds over longer distances to regenerate, and I won't be doing too many of those.
However I read that cars do have active DPF regeneration, so the problem fixes itself I think (combined with my own occasional longer trips, probably at least once every two weeks or so)?
Therefore question number 1: taking into account cars being fitted with active DPF regeneration, and the occasional trip out of town, do I really need to be worried about a clogged up DPF?
Diesel issue number 2: One of the main arguments for diesel engines is that they're more fuel efficient. I ran some calculations based on similar horsepower petrol vs diesel engines on the same model of car and taking into account their respective fuel economy figures. I conclude that at current prices I'm expecting to save me some €300-500 or so a year in fuel costs. While every penny saved is a positive, I don't think this number in and of itself is worth to weigh on the petrol vs diesel decision on its own.
Diesel issue number 3: this is becoming the biggest one, but looking at available cars (I'm targeting a roughly 3 year old mid-size slightly premium SUV) the available choices for diesel are far better. Like there's several times more diesel options available than petrol for otherwise the same parameters.
As an example if I want a BMW X3 2020, less than 125,000 km on the clock, less than €36K and searching Germany's largest used vehicle database:
Therefore it seems like to get a petrol (which is what everyone seems to recommend) instead of an equivalent diesel, I need to pay much more and choose from a much narrower field of options....and that's on top of slightly higher fuel costs as well. Therefore I'm really struggling to justify why I should get a petrol, but can someone perhaps offer some words of wisdom?

2023.06.01 13:03 jdmbw What is your opinion on this method?

I’m a massive GOW 2018 fan, only ever played the PC port and was blown away by the graphics, the story and the characters. Instantly slapped itself into my top 3 favourite games of all time.
I am (not so) patiently waiting for the GOW Ragnarok PC port and so far i’ve managed to avoid the majority of spoilers. It’s been hard, but since the game has been out for a while it’s gotten easier.
My problem though, still remains : Waiting for it to come out.
I’ve had an idea though and i’m wondering if anyone else is in the same boat/thinks it’s worth it.
Assassins Creed Valhalla.
Yes yes i know, AC has gone down the toilet. But i think it may scratch that itch that GOW 2018 implanted in me.
What do you guys think?
EDIT: I have been considering this for a while, but i’ve just noticed it’s on sale for 75% off, hence the post & hence me being a millimetre away from pulling the trigger.
EDIT2: Valhalla with Ragnarok dlc will help better maybe idk?
