2023.03.30 19:58 Rambooctpuss The Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time: #41 The Rolling Stones-Let It Bleed (1969)

The Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time: #41 The Rolling Stones-Let It Bleed (1969)
#41 The Rolling Stones-Let It Bleed
This is the 5th entry on the list for the Stones. As I wrote in my review of Sticky Fingers I go back and forth between this album, Sticky Fingers, and Exile on Main Street as my favorite Stones album. This one is bookmarked by two of my favorite Stones songs and in between is filled with bluesy country fueled rock jams. This was the guitarist's final appearance with the band as he was fired and died during recording; he only appeared on two tracks. Keith Richards handles the majority of the guitar and does an amazing job of creating some of the biggest hooks the band ever created. The album is often credited as being the end of the 60’s peace and love movement. It just sounds raw and dirty.
The album opens with “Gimme Shelter '' ; that opening riff is just iconic and it leads to one of the finest rock songs ever recorded. There is such an urgency in the groove of the song. The absolute highlight is the vocal performance by Merry Clayton. She pulls out all her emotions into the track. Her singing turns into a high pitch screech at moments as she wails “Rape, Murder It’s just a shot away” you can hear Mick Jagger so woah at awe spine chilling performance. Legend has it they woke her up at 3am to record her vocals and then she suffered a miscarage when she got home hours later partly due to the overextension of her performance. The album takes it down for the next track for the bluesy slow burner “Love In Vain '' a song originally written by blues legend Robert Johnson. The band slows down the pace for the track as it just feels like a down home blues tune. Ry Cooper is featured on Mandolin which adds to the sound of the song. “Country Honk” is a country version of “Honky Tonk Woman” . It's pretty cool. I just prefer the original song. “Live With Me” opens with a great drum and bass intro from Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts which continues throughout the whole song. It was guitarist Mick Taylor’s first appearance with the band. It has a heavy blues rock jaminess to it. Bobby Keys has a great Sax solo and Nicky Hopkins and Leon Rusell add piano and horn arrangements that add that bluesy vibe. “Let It Bleed” continues the blues rock grooves it has a warmness to it. It is all about emotional dependency be it from another person, drugs, or sex. Ian Stewart's piano and Jagger’s vocal performance are highlights for me. “Midnight Rambler” is a straight out blues jam that clocks in at almost 7 minutes. It's just a masterclass on how to do electric blues music. That song is about the Boston Strangler. “You Got The Silver” features Keith Richards first full song lead vocal performance; it also was Brian Jones last appearance on a Stones record playing the autoharp on the track. “Monkey Man” has a hint of R&B mixed in with Stone's classic blues rock grooves. It just gives off dirty rock vibes that the band did so well during this time. The album closes with perhaps the best closing track of all time “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” I believe this was the first Stones song I ever heard or at least the song the made me fall in love with them. It is just such a powerful song that has some great moments. It has one of Mick Jagger’s vocal greatest performances and the gospel choir adds fantastic flair to the track. The amazing thing about this song is that it makes you feel hopefulness and despair at the same time. Which is an amazing thing to do that not many artists could accomplish.
The run of albums the Rolling Stones had during the late 60’ to the mid 70’s was so impressive everyone should put on their bucket lists, They were indeed the greatest rock n roll band of their time. 5 out of 5 stars for this blues rock masterpiece.

2023.03.30 19:55 Tanis_Runner 32 [M4F] Massachusetts - Looking for a Primary Partner

I'm a solo-poly demi nerd looking for a primary partner; I moved to MA last year from Ohio for my current job. I currently have 2 partners (1 LDR, and 1 in Western MA).
My deal breakers up front: -No smokers (includes vape and MJ) -No Christians -No married folks (already have a married partner, and it's not my favorite dynamic)
I love my cat and gaming with friends, be it tabletop or video games. Most of the time I can be found on Discord, or my local tabletop game shop, but I'm always down to go outside. I also love horror films/games, streaming on Twitch, playing DnD/Call of Cthulhu, and going hiking in nature.
I'm a very physically affectionate person that loves to be able to spend time with someone who likes random hugs, kisses, and cuddles. If you also feel this way, then please reach out. Current gym-goer with a dad bod.
I'm looking for someone who will not only be a great partner, but a best friend. Someone who enjoys spending quality time together, even if we are doing our own things in silence. Although I am solo poly right now, I would like to eventually nest with the right person. Could that be you? :) Totally okay with long-distance with occasional visits, or more often if things go well; I'm not against moving if things go very well.
(Optional) If you are a nerd, a goth, a horror fan, wear glasses, or especially if you are taller than 5'8," then please swipe right.

2023.03.30 19:49 SpookyCatLime But the wedding dress was mine to keep, not part of the "collection"
Family dishonesty (DB and SIL) 7 replies Eleano · Today 13:55
Dear Mumsnet,
Me and my DH had the most amazing wedding. Everything went smoothly except for one thing.
My wedding dress had been promised to me as a gift to keep by my brother's DP and her DM who own a bridal boutique.
This gift which was announced at the time of our engagement over a year and a half ago, was above and beyond my expectations and I was very grateful for it. It was the reason that I was willing to travel to another country where the boutique is based for the fittings and collection. In fact, I travelled for the final fitting and collection just one week before my wedding which was quite stressful.
But all of that didn't matter because I was still really grateful that it was a gift and was willing to put in the extra effort.
On the day of the collection however, when the dress had just been packed into my suitcase, they mentioned in passing that my brother's GF would be taking the dress back with her after the wedding, as though that had been the agreement all along. I didn't react immediately because I was too shocked and because I wanted to doublecheck correspondence and see that they had indeed gifted it to me.
Sure enough when I checked my phone later I found the message where my brother’s GF had announced that her and her DM had decided to gift me a wedding dress to keep because they consider me to be family. I have a screenshot of that. At this point I still didn’t say anything to not create drama just before the wedding.
It’s also worth mentioning that the DM of my brother’s GF (owner of the boutique and designer of the dresses) had imposed specific demands on me regarding photography and social media promotion for the boutique and still wants me to keep that side of the deal.
Additionally, just before I left for the airport to return home the next day, my brother’s GF asked me if I would agree to post the dress back instead so that her luggage wouldn’t be increased and pay for the postage because her family wouldn’t be willing to. That is when I discretely said that I hadn’t budgeted for that cost because the dress had originally been gifted and she replied that she didn’t remember what had been agreed and in any case the dress was part of the new collection so couldn’t be gifted. Funnily enough, I remember clearly a few months before when I asked which collection the dress belonged to that they told me it was part of an old collection they couldn’t even remember. But that is irrelevant since even if it was true they should’ve told me at the time when I selected the dress over a year ago.
As soon as I parted from them I was able to cry the tears I had been holding back which were tears of sadness and anger since I realised that nobody - not even my brother or his GF had my back to tell me the dress had been ungifted and just be open and transparent with me instead of pretending they don’t remember or that it was part of the wrong collection.
The money I paid for the flights had exceeded the cost of hiring a wedding dress in my own country which would have been much easier for me to do. And the stress of travelling just one week before my wedding when I should’ve been at home doing so many other jobs can’t be measured.
It is now nearly one week after the wedding and I haven’t mentioned anything about it yet as I wanted the bubble of the wedding to pass and not taint it with this drama. However, my brother’s GF’s sister who works at the boutique is already questioning why I’m not tagging the brand on a few Instagram posts I reposted from my suppliers and has also today reminded me that they want me to improve their website.
Because of this pushiness and the fact that my brother himself reached out on her behalf to question why I wasn’t doing a better job of promoting the brand on my social media, I feel it is time to address the elephant in the room.
I am almost certain that they aren’t expecting me to say anything because they think I won’t want to rock the boat which is also why they did it in the first place.
My brother has been dishonest in the past too, having taken money from an account which was set up for a family project and using it for his own needs (he apologised after I pushed him to) and I’m pretty sure he’s been dishonest about many other things as well.
His values which are very different to mine make him think that it’s not a bad thing to lie and he seems to think that he gets away with it and nobody notices his dishonesty.
His GF is the same and together they feel they are a power couple - they are very domineering and competitive in group situations.
Me and my DH are down to earth people that don’t like conflict so we have never clashed with them but this seems like a step too far and I’m determined to at least get an honest explanation if I’m to continue having anything to do with them.
I have messaged my brother and asked him to call me to speak privately but he has said that he would rather I just text him because he’s busy. I know that he won’t call me even though I said that a text message wasn’t appropriate for this conversation.
Therefore, my plan is to text him about it and include the screenshot which proves that it had been gifted to me and end by saying that I expect an explanation at the very least especially if the boutique is expecting me to be sharing photographs from the wedding with them.
It is very disappointing because I did think that my relationship with my brother and his GF was improving since they were very excited about the wedding.

P.S: I don't have the dress as she took it with her when she flew back.

P.P.S: DB and his GF are keen to keep in touch and spend Easter together since they've been left feeling emotional about our newly extended family after the wedding, a sentiment I want to share with them but this situation is holding me back. Trying to figure out how to broach the subject now that they're being so nice. GF has been messaging me about every day trivial things too like we're best friends.

I don't think they are keen to keep in touch. They're just keen to say they are.
Easter is way too soon after your wedding, I think they're testing your boundaries. It's time to start saying no.
@tribpot that is SO interesting because I had a suspicion they were trying to bring us back down to earth in people's eyes after the wedding by spending Easter with them (because they are used to being the centre of attention and we were the centre due to the wedding) which sounds weird but it's similar to what you're saying. So much so that my brother said he would pay money towards our flights which is VERY unlike him. Why are some people like this? Hell bent on being on top? Confused
Go to post Eleano · Today 17:44
Dontbelieveaword · Today 17:39
So now you're also planning on accepting money towards flights from a couple you're not particularly fond of? Seriously, is this a joke? Where will you be staying? Let me guess. In their home abroad, free of charge? Tell them you're busy enjoying time alone as a newly married couple. And perhaps it might be a good idea to actually spend some time enjoying being a newly married couple rather than obsessing about your DB' and his girlfriend.
Who said I would accept? And no you guessed wrong.
Eleano · Today 17:55
@YaWeeFurryBastard I was not attached to the dress but for all the reasons stated above (eg flying to another country) it would have been good if they kept their word. Also I have a screenshot of the message where they said "yours to keep".
Go to post Eleano · Today 17:59
@Dontbelieveaword @Largeflaskoftea Lol I would be staying at my own house there over Easter if I was going to go but since you know me so well please enlighten us further...
Go to post Eleano · Today 18:00
@Largeflaskoftea didn't mean to tag you in that one

2023.03.30 19:45 Fisher9300 NWO Dream

So in my dream the Illuminati was on the news promoting themselves as an employer, like you go to them and they could give you just about any kind of job anywhere in the world and pay you more then anyone else. Think of a temp agency on steroids. It made me think of how Rockefeller would sell cheap gas to put the other nearby gas places out of business then jack up the price once there was a monopoly.
On the news Andrew Tate was also getting released from prison, or so I thought until he started running, I guess they were moving him but he ran away, someone gave him a bike and he went off into the Ohio grasslands.

2023.03.30 19:39 savagefriend First Herpes Outbreak - Dealing with the Shame and Embarrassment

Hey everyone,
Honestly, can't believe I'm writing this post, but here I am. Last week, I had unprotected oral sex with someone. On Thursday, I started getting a sore throat, but just thought, it was related to the change in the season. To be completely honest, I am not super educated on STIs although I did ask this guy if he had any STIs which he said no to (I know this is a VERY dumb take, now knowing that most people with herpes are asymptomatic). Anyhow, the sore throat has persisted along with additional symptoms (headaches, tiredness, itching of the vaginal area). Also, there seems to be a cold sore appearing on my chin, but I am unsure. I know I have to be tested and I have booked an appointment, but honestly, feeling pretty confident that this is herpes. I am utterly deflated, embarrassed, and ashamed. I have never had sexual intercourse and only recently started dating. I, of course, know this doesn't mean anything - unprotected oral sex is unprotected oral sex no matter my previous/current sexual and relational status. I take full responsibility for my actions, we both made the decision to have unprotected oral sex and I know that there is no excuse for that (play stupid games, win stupid prizes). My questions are:
(1) How do you overcome the shame of this? I know that herpes is very common and honestly not a big deal, but I seriously can't stop crying, can't stop thinking about the future implications, and can't stop thinking about how incredibly stupid I was. How will this affect future relationships? Should I tell my family (my family is pretty religious)? Do I have to tell anyone? I know it is rare but will I pass this on to any future kids I may have? How do you keep going after this experience and stay positive?
(2) Pain. If what is on my chin is indeed a blister, how bad is the pain when it breaks? I'm just anxiously waiting and I hate it.
(3) Future outbreaks. How often do you get outbreaks? I really have no interest in sharing my condition with anyone who does not need to know, but my job is pretty hands-on (I work at the hospital, so I can wear a mask for now, but this is temporary), how do you cover outbreaks? Feels like I'm wearing a scarlet letter right now.
(4) Does anyone have stories about how their herpes didn't destroy them forever? I know this is going to be a difficult road and again realize I have no one to blame but myself for this outcome, but if anyone has any positive uplifting stories of how herpes wasn't a death sentence (Again know that it's not, it just feels like it right now), I'd love to hear them.
I'm sorry for this rant as I am sure this is a consistent type of post in this group. I of course will be talking to a medical professional to get more answers and will tell the guy with whom I had oral sex of the prognosis. I've already read a lot of the threads in this group, so I just wanted to say thank you for all the support you've provided to others going through a similar situation. :)

2023.03.30 19:36 Imaginary_Doughnut27 Landlord requests annual rent increase

I’m trying to integrate some of the approaches from “never split the difference”. Any feedback?
His message:
Hi tenant, Effective April 1, I will need to increase your rent from $ xxxx to $xxxx+. This increase of 3.1% is less than 3.6% allowed so I think this is fair given what inflation has been doing to all my expenses. Actually, I was allowed to pick this increase effective March 1, but I didn’t. So I think I’m being very fair. -landlord
Proposed response:
Hi Landlord,
That amount is indeed fair, so thank you for that. Inflation has been a challenge for us all recently. My job has not given me raises that keep up with it, so I understand that pressure.
The co-op that my partner sells things at just shut down, and unfortunately we’ve lost that source of income for now. I know there are a lot of expenses running the building(the recent leak for instance), and I can appreciate that. At the same time, losing the income from the co-op has made things difficult for us. I wonder if there's a way we can work together to find a solution that works for both of us?

2023.03.30 19:27 SunshineGoldenHour How do you stay safe (physically and professionally) when you report?

I’ve been I guess what you might say was akin to being a whistleblower within a Fortune 500 company where some carelessness (?) in a department was resulting in about $5 million annually being spent duplicating orders for parts purchased in the gray market for repairs to customer units. It was left to upper management to explore if anyone was benefitting financially from that situation and I was not given the results of their investigation. I didn't have the ability to investigate with that level of oversight. Whistleblower may not be the accurate term when you report it internally? I’m not certain. I’m sure someone will set me straight about that. I privately investigated my suspicions and came up with the documentation to substantiate the problem before bringing it up with management.
The company thankfully took steps to address and fix the problem. I was in my mid-twenties at the time. I never thought twice about calling it out because I was young and eager to prove my skills. I confess I didn’t fully think through the potential consequences of uncovering and reporting the over-expenditure, though I will say it did haunt me for many years after when the company’s correction to the problem resulted in a small department losing their jobs. I was given a promotion and a raise for my efforts at the time. I do feel confident I did the right thing reporting the problem as the company holds a responsibility to shareholders to address those kinds of problems and maximize profits, but I do carry some shame that I got a promotion when others were let go. I mention this backstory to give insight that I’m not prone to coming up with false allegations or wild speculations. I have proven myself fairly sharp in the past at spotting procedural/clerical problems that resulted in significant fiscal over-expenditures that other people have missed.
I took a timeout for a couple decades to raise children and then recently went back to work for a government entity in a temporary position. I’m leaving that position to move into a permanent role somewhere else within days, but unfortunately, I’ve stumbled on what could be a significant clerical error that is potentially overcharging certain taxpayers significant funds. The people who are potentially making the error cannot benefit financially from it, so as best I can tell, it is not malicious or intentional fraud, "just" an error. I have a working theory for how this potentially happened that isn’t worth getting into here. I do think it may be only limited to a year or two of data being keyed incorrectly. Fixing the error, however, would likely require a lengthy audit that would spread from this entity across and then need to be transmitted across a couple hundred taxing entities to refund taxpayers for overpayment. There wouldn’t be an “easy” fix.
I have briefly raised the issue on my way out the door with a supervisor that I trust (buried deep in an email documenting insights observed during my tenure there) but I don’t know how likely it is that they will pursue it because everyone there seems to walk on eggshells in regard to protecting their positions, and I suspect they likely will not want to rock the boat. I have what I believe are legitimate concerns for why I don’t think raising this problem would go over well and for why they may want to sweep it under the carpet.
Unfortunately, I know how my mind works, and it’s likely to become the proverbial loose thread that my mind will pull at, even though I am moving on. I have enough knowledge of what I suspect is happening to be able to do what I believe would be a decently thorough personal investigation by compiling data from public sources to be able to substantiate whether this error is indeed happening and to come up with an idea of how pervasive it is, though that would be a significantly time-consuming pursuit for me. While I have brought this up internally with a supervisor in passing as I am in the process of leaving, I wouldn’t want to bring it up with any oversight/outside entities without any real documentation.
The entity that may be responsible for the error has all kinds of political entanglements, and though I didn't give a thought to reporting consequences when I was in my twenties, I’m old enough now to hold concerns about how this revelation would be received and potential repercussions. This overcharge being made to taxpayers would be a substantial black eye for the entity at a time where it is already unpopular. I’m not immediately concerned about losing my job. I’m already in the process of leaving (within days). I wouldn’t be anonymous because if I reported it though, as they’d very easily figure out that it was me that uncovered it and ran with it. I have perhaps read too many novels or seen too many movies though, because I am actually concerned for both my physical safety and my professional reputation if the suspicions were confirmed and I moved forward.
I’m torn at letting it go and taking the path of least resistance versus digging into it. I have a basic idea of who I would need to report it to that would have the authority to investigate but not full confidence that is the right path. I think I am hoping that I will either talk myself out of exploring and reporting it, or else hoping that I am wrong and that the data compilation will prove that. I sincerely don’t think I’m wrong though. This is not my first rodeo. I’m not particularly given to conspiracy theory thinking at all, but the situation feels potentially dangerous for me to pursue, and I’m really torn about how to proceed. I’d welcome any insight about things you might recommend someone in my shoes should consider.
TLDR: I may have stumbled on a government entity that is making a clerical error that potentially results in taxpayers being overcharged. I wouldn't have anonymity in reporting the situation, and though I am not worried about losing my job because I've already found a new one, I am potentially concerned about my safety and professional reputation if I discover my suspicions are correct and choose to move forward with reporting it. I'd like advice on how to proceed.

2023.03.30 19:12 crash_30 I don't understand why I can't get hired for an entry level job?

Since October 2022 [half a year now] I've been applying to various minimum wage jobs either with no experience needed or with low entry barriers.
I mostly applied online (through indeed, workday, or company websites) but I have done some in person as well. I've only been getting rejection letters or no resonses at all, with the exception of one McDonald's location which did a fast in-person interview with me last month and then never called me back [I wasn't sure if it was correct to call them so I just assumed I was not selected].
I've talked to several friends who have all said my resume looks good and don't understand why I'm having so much trouble.
I know being a student is an issue since I'm only avaliable evenings and weekends, but surely that can't be wrecking ALL my chances? Is it because I don't have a cover letter? or is it something else?
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

2023.03.30 19:06 disree_spect Ways to find work as assistant video editor or video editor?

Was a unionized assistant video editor for a major media company for the past two years but was recently laid off. Wondering if there are any spaces out there to find work as an assistant editor, junior editor or editor aside from the typical job search places like linkedin or indeed. The Post New York Alliance has been suggested to me but costs to join. Does anyone have experience with that or a job space like it and know if it'd be worth it?

I would like to know if I am doing anything wrong going further. I've applied to 150 jobs with maybe 7 or so interactions with companies. 2 filtered me out with a personality pre-assessment and another 2 are potential ghosts. 2 recruiters at companies seem to like me and have been keeping in contact with me in the event a role opens up in their department. However, they bluntly told me that I could be waiting around for a while given the current climate.
Resume: What my cover letters look like if you are looking to dive even deeper:
My job application process is generally:
I am currently working on projects to add to my resume and keep my skills sharp. In particular, I am going through the CS50 AI coursework and expanding some existing projects as well. I also plan to start looking at working on open-source projects per the advice of someone I met at a career fair.
Any advice is appreciated. Just looking to finally break into a technology related role no matter what it is. I like coding.

2023.03.30 18:18 LostCareTaker Humanity’s Potential - Part 5

First Previous
Recounting of First Contact with Species HS-01 - Humans, Sol System, Primary sentient Species in the Star system.
Recounting the events, Captain Invil Ta'Kotian, of the Serdes Hegemony, ally to the greater Federation that makes up much of the civilized galaxy. The nature of this retelling is to best determine the future that species HS-01 may have in the greater Galactic Stage, and whether they are friend or foe.
This particular continuation begins after three members of Species HS-01, David, Sten, and Sasha, have escaped custody. After exploring the vessel and bickering, the team reveals that Sten wishes to not return to a life of fighting angry farmers on Mars. David states his desire to return home. Sasha, however, remains silent during the entire exchange. Captain Invil and his crew are discovered by Hvista raiders, and after divulging the presence of a new species called "Humans" onboard their ship, the Hvista are all but eager to board and fight this new "Super" species.
"You shot us." David stated plainly as he sat in a chair facing Captain Invil. Scratching his beard, he nibbled on the extra food that had been provided. Sasha quietly stood next to him, munching away, as Sten practically inhaled ration bar after ration bar.
"We were terrified." Invil answered.
"You. Shot. Us." David said once more before folding his arms. "I said I wanted peace, I even said I didn't mind playing by your rules, and you shot us."
"You have a prisoner in your presence. I'd assumed you were the same. We don't know you. We don't know what your species is capable of. We were scared." Invil quickly reiterated before looking down. "I apologize... I suppose the silver lining is... Our weapons seem to have no effect on you."
"Oh they do," David said as he held up his right appendage. A massive block of purple and blue covered the area he'd been shot at. "It hurts like hell."
"It's supposed to tear off limbs."
Sten audibly laughed, showing his teeth and causing a number of the crew to place a hand on their weapons. "That's supposed to tear off limbs? Barely an itch."
"Well these are small arms. I'm certain a rifle could do more damage." Invil stated as if trying to protest as the large man only grinned more. "We don't have any on board.
"Yeah and why is that?" David took hold of the conversation again. "Far as I can tell there's just pistols on this ship."
"We're an exploratory vessel. We scout out mining sights, places rich in biodiversity. We mark it down and report back with samples. We're equipped to run away or take a hit, not fight back." Invil sighed. "Which is why I want to apologize. Can you accept that?"
David looked up to Sten who seemed more focused on his food. He then leaned to look at Sasha who signed before pointing to her tattoo. "For now, until we figure out what the hell is going on. But I don't want your men to get jumpy so let me just put the cards on the table now."
"Cards?" Invil asked as he tried to look where David would pull cards from, as the man had little more than a pocketless jumpsuit.
"Nevermind. Look, you were worried about the prisoner thing. Let's clear that up. Sasha, Sten, and myself. Yes, we are prisoners. Her government didn't like what she was saying. I... Killed someone in self-defense. Someone who had a lot of power. Sten well... Yeah well Sten is just crazy."
"I was an actual soldier. Did my job well." Sten grinned as another chuckle bubble up, causing some of the crew to step back. "Too well, ha."
"Sten," David chastised him softly. "We are prisoners yes, but it's a long story. We were part of a larger group and wound up separated. Separated by a very long way it seems. We're supposed to be back home, now I don't want violence between you and me. I want peace. Can you take us home?"
"Or anywhere else." Sten murmured, earning a frown from David.
"I... Can't promise that right now. We're under a situation." Invil started. "If you can help us, I don't see why we can't Shepard you home."
Sasha raised a brow and squeezed David's shoulder. "What kind of situation?" David asked not a moment after she did so. The ship suddenly shook as the clanging of metal rang all over.
"We're... Being boarded." Invil replied sheepishly.
Sten bellowed in laughter, "Finally! Some action!"
"And I guess we're supposed to help you?" David raised his brow.
"They're Hvista raiders. They see you as a rivals and want to fight you." Invil sighed, his ears drooping to a defeated position.
"Why do they want to fight us?" Sten asked curiously as he folded his arms.
"I told them you were here... And showed them you're resistance to our railguns." Invil admitted, causing the humans to frown at him. "I admit this only because... If they take this ship they'll kill all of us... If you fight them off, our chances are much better. I swear to you, David, if you and your humans can fight off the Hvista, I will shepard you back wherever." Invil quickly relayed so as to not lose their goodwill.
"Can I kill them now?" Sten questioned, causing a few guns to be drawn and aimed at him. "Oh it would be so easy."
"No." David stated before standing up.
"Boo, you're no fun." Sten grumbled.
"I can't say I'm a fan of you throwing us at your enemy like that, but if they prove hostile to us we'll handle it if we can. If they prove amenable well... I'll take them over the one that shot us." David stood from his chair and looked down at Invil with an annoyed gaze. "Unfucking believable... Give us weapons."
"No offense human but we can't do that." Invil shook his head.
"Are we supposed to beat the scary monsters to death with our fists?" Sten scoffed.
"Are you opposed?" David questioned.
"No, that's why I kept this," Sten reached to the back of his boots, and pulled a rather large knife that had most of the Aporyions shaking, as the size alone was as big as some of their heads.
Sasha rolled her eyes and approached the Captain. A few guns were drawn on her, but she merely stood before him and held out her hand. Tapping it a few times before making another tch noise, she glared at the Captain fiercely. Invil slowly looked to David. David merely shrugged, "That's her way of saying if you don't put a weapon in her hand, she's going to beat you to death with your own spine."
"You have... A colorful language," Invil gulped before slowly handing over his sidearm.
"S-Sir?" Teema asked.
"Can't say no now," Invil sighed as Sasha examined the piece. With a quick lesson on the weapon, Sasha turned and walked to David's size. She looked up at him with the same apathetic expression from earlier, and signed something. She then moved to tie her fiery locks of red hair behind her, showcasing a number of scars along her cheeks that were once hidden by unkept bangs.
"Agreed. Alright, we'll clean up this mess if they're hostile. Afterwards, we want home. And Captain?" David stated as he pulled up the gun he'd taken from the dead guard.
"Y-Yes?" Invil stuttered.
"You try to fuck with us, and I'll let Sten do to you what got him sent to Deathrow back on earth." With that, David left towards the door with Sasha in tow. Sten grinned ear to ear, before snickering as his gaze went around the room. The doors sealed shut behind them, and Invil gulped.
"Do we... heed the warning?" Another crew member requested.
"At this point... I believe the humans are our best bet. I'm not eager to learn what Deathrow is." Invil nodded. "Continue to scan for Hegemony patrols, in case our humans fail."
As the trio left the bridge, staring down the long hallway ahead of them. They saw at the end came new entities they'd been warned about. The Hvista stood as tall as David and Sten, all held a varying amount of trophies across their bodies. The one with the most, Araxium, stepped forward with a grin. "Humans!" He bellowed as he and his men began to stomp forward. "That is what they call you right?! It is an honor to finally meet a real warrior. Killing an Aporyion in one blow? I am impressed! I hope the data the Aporyions gave my translator is working, I'd hate to not be able to talk!" He shouted, causing Sten to step forward with a grin.
"Oh are you now?!" Sten shouted back as they grew closer. "Not my best work but well, it was fun."
Three of the Hvista paused, tensing up as they gripped their weapons tightly. Unlike the Aporyins, these raiders had brought both blade and railgun rifles with the intent to kill. However, as they paused, an animalistic growl came from Araxium who looked over his shoulder at them. "Whats gotten into you?"
"The eyes... The eyes scream Makorvo, Hunt-Master." One of the younger looking Hvista said as he tapped his claw against his rifle. "Cursed one."
"Bad omen... Don't like," another Hvista said.
"Ignore these feelings, whether it is sick or not it cannot stand against us. Raval awaits the brave." He growled before returning his attention to the humans. David, Sten, and Sasha had moved to varying cover, keeping an eye on them from afar.
"Tell me," David started, "The Aporyions say you can't be talked to... They already shot at us so I'm not too keen on experiencing that again. Would you and your people be willing to take us home? We don't have to end in blood shed."
Araxium laughed and shook his head, his flowing mane rattling with the sound of bone charms clanking together. "I cannot. It goes against everything I believe. We have found fellow warriors, I wish to test your strength. Should you defeat us in battle, and one survivors, we will gladly honor your request, as the Code dictates."
"The Code huh? How does that work?" David continued before signing to Sasha. She nodded and began to quietly move farther off to the side.
"My people are not monstrous, human. We abide by the Code. Honor above all else. Through bloodshed we are made whole. I've seen your strength but for a moment, and I wish to experience it first hand. Should you prove worthy, I will honor your request as a fellow warrior." Araxium stated before chuckling. "Who knows, perhaps we will walk away from this as... Kran," he said before his crew began to laugh alongside him.
"If you want to fight I guess we got no choice... I'm David, Sargent David, UN Prisoner of Battalion 13, leader of squad 7. Whom does my team have the honor of... Fighting?" He asked as he saw Sasha skulking behind them. David wasn't sure how she'd gone unnoticed, but silently thanked that she was on their side.
"David of clan Sargent, it is an honor. I am Araxium, of Clan Orrek. May our fight be worthy of both Your Ancestors and Mine." Araxium grinned.
"Finally," Sten rose from cover and stepped into the open.
"Sten!" David shouted as Sten merely opened his arms, holding up his knife.
"I'm bulletproof! Come at me you cow-" his words were interrupted as a well placed shot to the chest sent Sten flying back nearly ten feet. With a heavy thud, Sten hit the ground, coughing loud as blood escaped his lips.
"Sasha now!" David shouted as he rose from cover. Firing wildly at the enemies who moved to take cover, David kept low and made his way to Sten. Narrowly avoiding several stray shots, David grabbed Sten's shirt and pulled him behind a wall while still firing at the enemy. With luck, he struck a Hvista in the chest, and was nearly frozen in awe as a golf ball sized hall was blown right through the unlucky Raider. "They weren't kidding," he grumbled as he continued to fire from cover, and checked on Sten. "Sten, Sten wake up! Are you alright?!"
Sten groaned and coughed as he sat up. "Y-Yeah, just got... The wind knocked outta me... Did you know those things are bigger than the pistols?"
"You fucking idiot, hurry up I need you in this fight!" David shouted as he continued to fire a few shots before taking cover.
"That'll wake you up, ugh," Sten coughed again before coughing more blood. "I think it broke something."
"I'm going to break you if you don't get in this fight!"

From the opposite side of the ship, Sasha quietly gazed at the backs of the Hvista from her hiding spot. As one on the right slowly was left behind by the others that advanced forward on David, she emerged from hiding with the sidearm she'd been given in hand. Her eyes fell to the curved knife on the Hvista's back. Her speed picked up as she sprinted behind the Hvista. His ears flicked as he tried to turn, not expecting someone that barely reached his chest to be so bold as to charge him. Sasha kicked the back of its right leg, hearing an audible snap that caused the Hvista to howl in pain as it feel to one knee. Sasha grabbed it's knife, leaping onto the creatures back and pulling it back with surprising ease that nearly caught her off guard. Thrusting its own knife into the Hvista's neck she brought up the side arm she'd been given and dumped three shots into the Hvista closest to her. Turning and using the one she held as a meat shield she fired another four shots into the next. The remaining four including Araxium quickly moved to better cover, before half turned their guns on Sasha.
David sprung at the opportunity and opened fire as well.
Araxium merely laughed from cover. "Finally! The Ancestors have blessed us with a real challenge! Kor, Dojek, handle the woman, Barra, you're with me."
Together the hunters spread out to began flanking both Sasha and David in their teams.
As the humans took cover, their guns made audible clicks to show they had nothing left. But not soon after the clicks from the Hvista guns signaled the moment was now. Sasha sprinted from cover with the blue blood covered knife at her two assailants. Both of which happily drew their own knives. Seeing them both charge at once, she glared daggers before throwing the empty pistol at one. Though more of an inconvenience than anything else, it caused the Hvista to hold up its arm to block. Leaving her which just one to deal with. Dropping low and sliding between the other Hvista's legs, she slashed at its right leg, causing it to snarl in pain before it swung around to stab where she was.
Sasha rolled to the side, quickly getting up to her feet before backstepping. The Hvista worked together to slash back and forth, and were relentless. Sasha could only dodge for so long before one finally reached forward and grabbed her by the throat. Choking as she was lifted, the Hvista raised its blade. "The first kill is mine!" It shouted before bringing the knife towards her. Sasha snarled herself and swung her foot forward, striking the Hvista's elbow. It screeched in pain as the bone snapped clean in two, its arm dangling like a limp noodle. The other Hvista would not be dissuaded, as it quickly brought its knife down into Sasha's shoulder and rushed forward to push her back.
The first sound she had made in space, and it was a scream of pain, she growled like a feral beast as the Hvista held her against the wall, driving its serrated blade in deeper. The Hvista growled back before reaching back and drawing another blade. A bellowing warcry caught their attention as Sten came charging from the side, tackling the Hvista and dragging it away. Sasha slumped to the floor, wincing in pain as she held her shoulder. It felt like it was on fire, and she gritted her teeth as she saw the large metal protruding from her shoulder.
Sten dragged the Hvista away before reaching down to its waist. The Hvista repeatedly slammed its fists into Sten's back, causing no shortage of pain. Sten however, fueled by adrenaline, wrapped his arms around the beast and hoisted it into the air. With a rage fueled scream, Sten slammed the Hvista onto the ground, though did not kill it so easily. Quickly climbing ontop of it, he began swinging his fists into its face over and over. Audible snaps and crunches echoed around the hallway as fangs flew from the creatures mouth. It growled, snarled, and swiped at Sten to no avail. It's tail came from behind and tried to impale Sten, but stopped suddenly as something grabbed hold of it. A wounded Sasha screamed in anger as she threw herself on the Hvista's sharpened appendage, holding it down as Sten continued to beat the Hvista to death. A few moments later, and the creatures head was nothing more than mash on the ground. "Thanks little Red." Sten grinned before bringing up his own knife and throwing it towards Sasha.
She paused, shock and fear as the blade came towards her, but turned as it flew by and impaled itself into the head of the other Hvista whose arm she had broken. The creature fell to the ground, dead almost instantly. She turned to Sten, giving him an approving nod.
"Aw, you love me." Sten grinned, causing another irritated tch to escape from her as she rose up. Her body shook in pain as the knife was still firmly in her shoulder. "Stay down little red, I'll give David some help." Sten said as he pulled his knife from the Hvista and rushed to help. Sten stopped as Sasha grabbed his arm, looking down at her confused. She twitched in pain before gesturing towards the airlock the creatures had boarded from. The sound of heavy footsteps gave Sten pause as he gripped his knife tightly. "Ah... Well, that's a problem."

On the other side, David hadn't faired any better. The first Hvista was easy to take down as it charged wildly towards him. His own knife skills far outclassing the beasts. The fluid movements had seen him using the Hvista's own momentum against it, flipping it over before stabbing it in the throat. In one fluid motion he had regained his footing, slowly trying to circle Araxium. "You are indeed a warrior, David of Clan Sargent."
"It's just David. Sargent is my rank." He said, breathing heavily as hunger still weighed on him. The blue blood of the Hvista covered his weapon as well as himself.
"I must say, I am indeed impressed. Perhaps we can come to an agreement." Araxium grinned before readying his blade. "If you survive."
"If YOU survive," a growl came from down the hall. Araxium and David both looked up to see five more Hvista standing there, two of which held a wounded Sten hostage. Sasha was, however, no where to be seen.
"I killed two of them before they jumped me, ha," Sten said happily before the butt of a railgun slammed into his back, causing him to grunt and fall to his knees.
"Quiet, beast." A Hvista with near golden fur growled before returning to gaze at Araxium. "Look at the mess you've gotten us into, Hunt-Master. They gave us ample warning about these humans in the footage, and you still charged in."
"Kintsu.... I hadn't expected you to actually show up to the battle. Ha, I figured you would've stayed on the ship." Araxium chuckled.
"You got our men killed for no reason." Kintsu growled.
"They died fighting. Raval awaits them. Unlike you." Araxium spit, causing Kintsu's guards to snarl.
"Yes, yes, of course. If that's what will help you sleep at night. I'm done with this. We have one of them. We will take it back for study. There are new worlds to conquer. New worlds to enslave." Kinstu began, causing David to tense up.
Araxium, to David's surprise, roared. "We do NOT enslave warriors! Only the Servant races. Do you wish to spit on your Ancestors so readily?! Where is your respect for the Code?!"
"Damn you and damn the Code. Do you not see what this means?! A race of warriors no one has yet contacted. If we can make them ours, we would be as great as the Ancestors once were. I am tired... I am tired of this mindless raiding, we could be striking the golden worlds! Instead we are kept to the outskirts like feral animals. I am tired of it. I am tired of living as a shadow of the former Empire." Kintsu spat.
"And I'm tired of your voice." Sten spat before suddenly leaping it and striking Kintsu, breaking away from the guards holding him. Even with his bare fist, a sickening crack from the Hvista's skull as the two left eyes came practically flying out. A sudden shock came as the other guard struck Sten with a baton, causing Sten to audibly gasp before collapsing. Kintsu screamed in pain as the guards aimed their railguns at David and Araxium.
"Get down, David!" Araxium screamed before taking cover nearby. The other Hvista opened fire as they slowly began to advance.
Sten, slowly slipping in and out of consciousness, looked up at Kintsu who held his swollen face. "Sir!" Another Hivsta said as he approached Kintsu. "The Aporyions are attempting to vent the ship. We have to go!"
"Those cowards.... Grab the human, fall back! Everyone fall back!" Kintsu shouted before Sten fell into unconsciousness.
David and Araxium watched as they retreated to their ship, before Araxium looked up at the warning lights suddenly flashing red. "Those cowards!" He roared.
"What's happening?!" David snapped.
"They mean to open all the airlocks and vent the ship. They'll lose everything on board, better alternative than dealing with us." He growled before moving towards the bridge door. Kneeling by a panel, he ripped it off and began to work.
"Us?" David asked as he approached Araxium.
"Would you prefer to keep fighting in the void of space, human?" Araxium asked as he looked back to David.
David shook his head, "I'd prefer to be alive."
"As would I. Now give me a moment."
David turned at the sound of something collapsing and saw Sasha, still with the knife in her shoulder crawling forward. He quickly moved to help her up. Her breathing was shallow, and she winced as he held onto her.
The door to the bridge was flown open, and the three survivors moved in just as it sealed shut behind them. "Goddess, save us!" One of the Aporyions shouted as guns aimed for Araxium.
"If anyone pulls a trigger I'll kill each and every one of you!" David shouted, causing the crew to freeze up.
"Cancel the venting! Cancel it!" Invil shouted, followed by sighing as the emergency lights flickered off.
"I said not to fuck us over," David glared daggers at Invil.
"We had no intention of doing so. You were being overwhelmed. We figured you would've lost so we made sure to protect ourselves. If I wanted to fuck you over I would've welded the doors shut and then vented the ship." He explained before his eyes trailed over to the Hvista. "But it seems it doesn't matter, now that this demon is here."
"Demon, ha, ironic coming from an Aporyion. Oh the words I could use to describe you and your Morrowav overlords. Each one less flattering than the last." Araxium growled.
"Enough!" David shouted. "Someone help my friend here or so help me I'll start killing everyone." David snapped.
After a moment of silence, Araxium moved into action. "Lay her here on the table," he said while sweeping away equipment, scaring off the Aporyion crew members that manned it. "The blade will need to be removed, it will not be pleasant."
"You're a doctor?" David raised his brow as he laid Sasha down.
"No. I'm a survivor." Araxium chuckled as he reached into a satchel on his right flank. The Aporyions nervously watched as he produced a few medical tools fit for the field.
"Good enough." David nodded as he moved to Sasha's side. "Anything else hurt?" He asked. She shook her head and David breathed a sigh of relief. "Ok... Let's get you patched up." He tried to move to help, but stopped as Sasha grabbed his arm. She signed slowly, causing David to look back at the door. "I don't know... They took him."
Sasha slowly nodded and looked to the ceiling. Araxium held a piece of blackened wood up to her face. "Chew on this. It will help." He offered. She hesitated at first, but obeyed, biting down on it.
"What is that gonna help with?" David inquired.
"This," Araxium grabbed the knife and ripped it out, causing Sasha to suddenly thrash and slam a fist into the table. She screamed as he moved to inject some sort of foam into her wound. The pain slowly subsided and she dropped the blackened wood from her mouth. "Our medicine is not as fancy as Aporyions, but it will stop the bleeding.
"Wait a minute what will it do to her?!" David shouted as he suddenly looked to ensure she wasn't reacting to it abnormally.
"The alternative was bleeding out. Our blades are designed to rip and tear. Would that be preferred?" Araxium folded his arms as Sasha's breathing slowed.
"Next time warn me before-"
"It's fine," A soft feminine voice came from the table with a thick eastern European accent. David looked down to Sasha's hollow eyes as she gazed up at him. She turned to Araxium and nodded. "Thank you... The pain... Is leaving."
"You are welcome." Araxium nodded before turning to Invil. "Now... What to do with you." He grinned, but suddenly perked up as alarm bells began to go off.
"Captain! We're being targeted!" A crew member shouted.
"Get us out of here! Warp to the nearest system!" Invil shouted. His eyes gazed up at the viewport to see the Hvista ship firing its first salvo.

(More to come, Later!)

2023.03.30 17:58 pippofranco1300 Why most posts here complain only about procrastination and productivity?

I have combined ADHD and even though I can't do things that don't directly give me pleasure, I spend too much time on useless things and I lose interest in everything quickly, this seems to me the least annoying symptom! I absolutely do not do what I should do, indeed, it would seem that the more important something is, the more I procrastinate it. However, by now I'm used to forgetting things easily and being less than diligent. If something is REALLY important, then anxiety allows me to fix the situation a moment before the worst. Finding alternative solutions or working hard.
But you want to compare this to being sleepy all the time because you can't get decent sleep, overthinking even the negative things, amplifying the stress even in the smallest things. NEVER have a moment of peace for the brain when you are in a place with so many unexpected stimuli because you are constantly hyperaware of everything. This makes me look completely stupid and useless in noisy places like a school or a busy street.
Whenever I have a conversation in a busy place (like every school day) I am of few words and silent because when there are a thousand things happening every second that make a lot of noise I have to be constantly attentive to everything, and therefore practically on nothing. Every time it's as if I weren't there, I can only answer direct questions and even in those I can't provide decent answers with a minimum of thought behind them; only what is strictly necessary because at the same time it is as if many different people were yelling in my ears (or doing anything you can't ignore) and as soon as I exchange a few words I feel the irresistible need to move and do something else.
I've never been able to show people what I really think and I've never devoted even a little of my attention to anyone (in the true sense of the word!) and therefore I only have superficial social relationships and no one has ever had the chance to see my character or simply seeing myself applied to something. At this point, even I would think from the outside that I am a flat, stupid person who could not be entrusted with anything. Everything changes when we casually talk about a hyperfixation. There any distraction disappears and I talk a lot. It's the only time people can see that there's something in my head and I'm not a fish. In fact, they are often amazed at how much I know about a certain subject and give me lots of compliments. These moments are literally the opposite of what usually happens.
To make matters even worse are also my BAD results in any team sport. They are objectively bad, not even by committing anyone I know would be able to obtain results like mine. It's impossible for me to concentrate in a game. As long as I stay still for 1 minute without touching a ball or doing anything else I've already forgotten about the game and in my head I'm thinking about the most disparate things, then the ball comes and I do nothing. My results don't suck, because I don't have them, I'm completely not able to play the game.
The hyperactivity is very marked when I am at home. I find myself feeling the need to run sometime every hour. It certainly doesn't help concentration, but nothing that stressful.
In a situation where I'm forced to sit down (like at school), I have to work really hard and constantly. It's not just thinking about it, it's a constant job going against my impulses, and it's very hard. Just one more thing to add to the mess inside my head, because we weren't already quite distracted and lacking in energy were we? lol
To top it off, rejection sensitivity and impulsivity work together to create absurd situations where I interpret some sentences very badly, believing they were negative towards me and impulsiveness certainly doesn't stop me from responding badly and insulting everyone, even ruining relationships with friends. Then when I have a moment of tranquility from all this mess I think back and understand that in reality that sentence was certainly not offensive in any way and I proved that I was just an asshole by randomly insulting people. My head that thinks constantly and never stops taking the ball starts a series of negative thoughts about it, bouncing among a thousand other similar events that have happened since I was a child.
Thankfully I always found people that most of the time understood my difficulties (except my parents that were actively trying to "fix" me in wrong ways). Most people have always been cordial to me, even when I've failed in some serious duty, even though they don't even know what ADHD is or that I have a disorder.
Ritalin is miraculous and cures all symptoms. From the outside I appear another person (although it would be more correct to say that now I just "appear") and I always try to have full coverage throughout the day. I really don't know how some people only take ritalin when they have to work on something boring.
EDIT: Regarding what says the bot about rejection sensitivity: it is true that it is not recognized as a disease on its own, but it is widely accepted that it is a symptom of ADHD. Since ADHD is dedicated to ADHD this reminder is stupid.

2023.03.30 17:52 spekai Is OfferDeal legit?

Hey guys I’m currently in the process or getting my real estate license (in Texas) and I saw this post on Indeed about a job opportunity that doesn’t require a license but has a 70k-200k salary and is also remote. That’s pretty good for me considering at the moment I’m working two minimum wage jobs and am a full time university student. The company is called OfferDeal and its main headquarters is in Georgia by Athens. It’s a wholesaling company but they require $87 a month on resources such as CallRail and Slack which is a lot for me at the moment. I tried researching them online but found nothing, not even a website. Maybe I’m just not researching hard enough. I’m willing to try and cover the monthly fee and put effort into really making this work, but I just wanted to ask people in here who may have worked with them or heard about them before, are they legit? Thanks guys :)!
Tl:Dr- Is OfferDeal located in Georgia a real and good company?

2023.03.30 17:47 TheTalkedSpy "Love Is …" (April 8, 2005)

Source: The La Vista Church of Christ
In learning the craft of needlepoint, a person will sometimes work on a sampler. The sampler generally contains a notable quotation and a variety of images and scrollwork to demonstrate the different stitches mastered. Bible verses are often selected for the basic text, and one of the most popular selections is I Corinthians 13:4-8:
Love suffers long and is kind; Love does not envy; Love does not parade itself, Is not puffed up; Does not behave rudely, Does not seek its own, Is not provoked, Thinks no evil; Does not rejoice in iniquity, But rejoices in the truth; Bears all things, Believes all things, Hopes all things, Endures all things. Love never fails.
Though we often associate this passage with weddings, Paul originally penned it to describe the love shown between fellow Christians. But since it describes love in general, it also applies to the love between husband and wife, parents to their children, and the love that God has for each of us. Let us consider what each point means.


The word here expresses the willingness to wait, even through disagreeable times. It is probably best illustrated by God's longsuffering with mankind. "What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?" (Romans 9:22-24). Mankind, as a whole, has not been the most loveable of God's creation. Our behavior in rebelling against our God would have tried anyone's patience. Yet, we find that God has put up with the bad in order to save the good. "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance" (II Peter 3:9). God tolerance of man's sins is not endless, but it is very long, giving us every opportunity to improve.
Our society doesn't cultivate patience. We seek instant gratification and impulsive whims. We lost something as our economy moved away from its agricultural roots. "Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience. Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord--that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful" (James 5:7-11). That which is worth having is worth investing time to gain. It takes time for a person to mature, so invest the time in the people you love.
Not every relationship goes smoothly all the time. Even the best relationship will experience rocky points of heartaches. It is patience, born of love, that carries us through the rough times. "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing" (James 1:2-4). Too many marriages are only wonderful during the honeymoon. Difficulties are bound to come, but they are also bound to be followed by good times. It is patience that helps us last through the bad times so that we are still together when things turn rosy once again.


"Kind" means showing yourself to be useful or acting in a benevolent way. "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you" (Ephesians 4:31-32). Kindness is more than an absence of ill-will; it is an activity showing your care for another person. "But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil" (Luke 6:35). Kindness is not something reserved for major events; kindness is demonstrated in the little things that we do day-by-day for the one we love. "Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion. Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men" (Romans 12:9-17).

Not Envious

Envy is an infection that eats away at life, ruining even its best moments. "A sound heart is life to the body, but envy is rottenness to the bones" (Proverbs 14:30). Envy is believing that what another person has ought to belong to you. Joseph was his father's favorite son and he showed his favor by giving him a special coat. God also showed favor to Joseph by sending him dreams that indicated he would one day be head of his family. However, Joseph's brothers envied him (Acts 7:9). They only saw that they were not getting what Joseph was getting. Their envy eventually led them to consider murdering their own brother and eventually selling him off into slavery. Love cannot survive when envy invades the soul. "Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another" (Galatians 5:26).

Does Not Vaunt Itself

On the flip-side, when you love someone you don't give that person cause to envy you. There is no need to put yourself on a pedestal when you already have someone who admires you. "But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil" (James 4:16). "For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith" (Romans 12:3).

Not Puffed Up

"Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall" (Proverbs 16:18). Pride is a destructive force, ruining relationships, causing arguments, and keeping a person from seeing things through the eyes of another. "He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife" (Proverbs 28:25). Paul mentions this to the Corinthians because their pride was destroying the church. "Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that you may learn in us not to think beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up on behalf of one against the other ... Now some are puffed up, as though I were not coming to you. But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills, and I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power" (I Corinthians 4:6, 18-19).

Does Not Behave Rudely

Yes, love requires good manners for love does not act unbecomingly. Though you must wonder at the world's idea of love. So often husbands and wives are depicted saying the rudest things about each other in order to get a laugh, but such is not a depiction of love. James told brethren, "Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge" (James 4:11). We should appreciate those to whom we are closest instead of regarding them with contempt.

Does Not Seek Its Own

We have enough people who act as if they are the center of the universe. Love is for other people, not for yourself. Other people must come before our own. "Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others" (Philippians 2:3-4). "Let no one seek his own, but each one the other's well -being. ... just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved." (I Corinthians 10:24, 33).

Not Easily Provoked

When you truly love someone, it should be difficult to become exasperated at them. Love is willing to overlook the little annoyances that are bound to occur. "So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God" (James 1:19-20). You cannot love another with a chip on your shoulder.
Now, this doesn't mean you will never get angry. It means the threshold for becoming angry is higher. And when you do get angry, you settle the problem quickly so that the anger will not last. ""Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil" (Ephesians 4:26-27).

Thinks No Evil

The phrase refers to a person who keeps records of every past misdeed ever committed. Sure, in any relationship there will be missteps. Given time, you are bound to say something or do something which you wish you had not. But in a loving relationship, such misdeeds should be willingly forgiven when the person repents, and once forgiven never brought up again. "And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, 'I repent,' you shall forgive him" (Luke 17:4). Forgiveness is not dependant on how many times a wrong was committed in the past. Each event is to be looked at separately and independently. Imagine asking God for forgiveness only to be told "I sorry, I've already forgiven you a thousand times. You've used up your quota." "Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do" (Colossians 3:12-13).
Forgiving wrongs means letting go of the past. "For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more" (Jeremiah 31:34). It is not that the memory of the event will disappear, but that it will no longer matter because it will not be brought up for discussion again.

Does Not Rejoice in Iniquity, But Rejoices in Truth

Even though it is wrong, we sometimes feel a certain glee when someone we dislike fall on hard times. "Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles" (Proverbs 24:17). Worse yet is when a person is happy for the failings of someone they supposedly love.
Our concern should be that those we love will be saved. Yet, there are some who claim to love while leading a person astray. How often have you heard the phrase, "If you really love me, you would ..." and then some sinful action is suggested. Such is not from love but from self-interest.
Instead, we should find pleasure in our loved ones' righteous deeds. "I rejoiced greatly that I have found some of your children walking in truth, as we received commandment from the Father" (II John 4).

Bears All Things

In Greek, this phrase literally means to cover a subject with silence. There are going to be times when a loved one will injure you in some way. Hopefully, the problem will be handled and forgiven. "Let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins" (James 5:20). While we earlier noted that love keeps no records of wrongdoing, here we go a step further. Many sins carry embarrassing consequences. To love someone is to help them deal with the consequences after you have forgiven them. "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered" (Psalm 32:1). We have to be sensitive to the feelings of those who know they have done wrong and have turned away from sin. It does them no good to further drag them through the mud of their own making. "Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins" (Proverbs 10:12). When you love someone, you go through the bad times with them.

Believes All Things

When you love someone, you demonstrate that love by trusting them. Love is built on a foundation of trust. There is an old song called, "When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman" that speaks the exact opposite sentiment. The author of the song claimed that you would have to watch her every move because you never know when she might cheat on you. Such an attitude is simply not love!
When someone is willing to trust you, you, in turn, need to demonstrate that you are trustworthy. You should never place yourself in a situation that would destroy the trust you have.

Hopes All Things

Love is optimistic and not pessimistic. We should always expect the best and look forward to better times. Even if this world has its disappointments, there is a home awaiting the will not disappoint. "For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come" (Hebrews 13:14). "These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them" (Hebrews 11:13-16).

Endures All Things

Love keeps going even when our life is filled with burdens. It doesn't quit or give up. The righteous, "He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper" (Psalm 1:3). God's word sustains us through good times and bad.
Some approach marriage with the idea that if it doesn't work, they will get a divorce. That is not love! I have seen Christians deal with congregations the same way. They will stay so long as things go smoothly for them. But as soon as there is a bump in the road, they are out the looking for another congregation. Such Christians have no love for their brethren.

Love Never Fails

True love never stops. You can't fall in and out of love. Love endures. Love grows.

2023.03.30 17:45 thisismyname9496 please help me with final costs and cremation for my baby
Update 3/28
Today patches crossed the rainbow bridge. I appreciate all of you who have been so generous. I'm updating this for help with her final vet costs and for cremation. Anything helps, kind words, prayers for healing our broken hearts and even if you could share this we would be so grateful. Thank you to all of our wonderful friends and supporters. You are loved!
Dear World,
This is Patches, she is not your average Border Collie, she doesn't work on a farm but she does have a very important job. For the past 13 and a half years she has been not just my side kick but a family member and my best friend. She has been my confidant and my therapist. She has been next to me through all the good and bad times. She has made me laugh so hard I cry, and during my dark days she has licked away my tears and let me hug her and cry onto her soft fur. She has kept my secrets and listened to my fears and has always been within reach when I've had a nightmare. She has always loved me unconditionally. She has barked along while I've made up goofy songs to sing to her. There just simply are not words to describe how much she means to me. Her paw prints are all over my heart and her wagging tail is deep within my soul. the love I have for her is just as strong as the love I have for my kids. I've started this fundraiser because lately she hasn't been herself. We live in Ohio where the train derailment happened on February 3rd and she recently started to show symptoms that some other animals have also shown, so I took her to the vet and was given the unfortunate news that she has pneumonia and congestive heart failure. the vet put her on antibiotics for the pneumonia and will see her back in the coming weeks to run additional tests with the hopes that she is in the early stages and maintenance medications could help her.
unfortunately, I do not have an income right now as I'm going through the social security process and I know this is going to get expensive, my biggest worry is that I will have to say good bye to her and not be able to afford it so anything helps, even if you can share this I would greatly appreciate it.
if you would like to learn more about patches she has a Facebook page

How important is work experience for MBA applicants?

![img](n8ftgk9ycwqa1 " Everyone who wants to get an MBA may wonder if having work experience is beneficial. Indeed, my answer is YES! You gain greater insights into business and management studies by having real-world experience. Candidates with professional work experience possess a particular level of maturity and managerial skills, which aid in their development as subject matter experts. With past work experience, pursuing an MBA not only helps you better plan your future but also gives you a competitive edge. And if you want great knowledge with great experiences then you must join the courses in Physics wallah, I have found it much helpful for me to gain better knowledge with great skills. How many years of work experience is right for you? You will have a more realistic approach and the best course results if you pursue an MBA with at least a year of professional work experience. Hence, a minimum of 2-3 years of job experience is preferable, according to the placement reports of India's leading business schools. Also, many b-schools accept applicants with up to 5 to 8 years of professional experience. Most of the time, two to five years of work experience is seen to be excellent if you plan to enrol on an MBA programme. Is work experience required to enrol in an MBA program? The amount of work experience needed to get an MBA is not a set requirement. Yet, the majority of famous institutions favour applicants who have at least two years of expertise in the subject. Students with 2 to 5 years of experience are more likely to get accepted despite fierce competition. The criteria for admission vary from business school to business school. While some only have a few seats that are filled by the most experienced individuals, some enable freshmen to obtain an MBA. As a result, it is advised that you thoroughly examine the experience requirements of each university before selecting one for your MBA and choose a school whose standards you can meet. ")

2023.03.30 17:33 throwawayretaliate51 Job offer seems fishy to me...scam?

So I applied for a remote position on Indeed, for a "real estate assistant". The person who reached out to me seemed to have an American sounding name but had a heavy possibly Indian (?) accent. Not that that in itself is a red flag, but the entire process has been bizarre to say the least.
I received an email explaining the job, stating that the training period is two weeks and the pay is $2k, then after that you have the option to work part or full time for $1450 or $2900 biweekly, respectively. They had me sign and date some paperwork (they did not ask for any personal information like a social security number, not that I would provide it) and then the woman played phone tag with me for several days. She would call and not leave a voicemail, and never called during the times I asked her to. For instance the first time I missed her call I asked her to call me at 11 am the next morning. She didn't call until 4 pm that day and I missed her. This happened several times.
When I finally got ahold of her, she explained that the job does a "trial period" of 2 weeks to where they will give us an assignment and we have 24 hours to complete it. She also keeps insisting I add her on What's App and communicate that way (another red flag, if I'm not mistaken). She said she needed to submit my application paperwork for "approval" (whatever that means).
I got an email today congratulating me for being approved and said "welcome to the team" and that I'd receive my first assignment this coming Monday and I'd have 24 hours to complete it. There was never a formal interview or anything, just a phone interview (and it was hardly an interview).
I'm getting serious red flag vibes about the entrie situation...I did look up the company and it's legit, and the phone number and email she reached out to me from seem to be listed on the company site as well. But I can't shake the feelings of suspicion.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

2023.03.30 17:30 hallach_halil Halil's top 10 offensive tackles of the 2023 NFL Draft:

Halil's top 10 offensive tackles of the 2023 NFL Draft:

We’ve arrived at the big-boy portion of our positional draft rankings! After already breaking down the best running backs, linebackers, wide receivers and cornerbacks of this class, we will spend these next two weeks talking about the guys inside the trenches both inside and out for offense and defense – and we are starting with the offensive tackle position!
I believe there are four small-dunk first-round players among this group, who can all be week-one starters, with varying degrees of technical advancement compared to physical upside. After that, there are five names, who I’d have no problem with all going inside the top-75, including a couple of athletic specimen, who aren’t close to the potential of players they can become one day. At number ten, there’s one more highly talented prospect, who may actually go earlier than a few names I have listed above him, based on the ceiling he presents. After that, you’re looking at more so serviceable players, who will largely be backups, along with a couple of underdeveloped kids you may want to take a flyer on day three, if you have the edges of your O-line secured for now.
Just to clarify – North Dakota State’s Cody Mauch will see his name listed among the interior offensive line.
Here’s how I have this group stacked up:

1. Paris Johnson, Ohio State

6’6”, 315-pounds; RS SO

The top-rated offensive tackle in the 2020 class, Johnson saw the field for just 22 snaps as a true freshman, before taking over as the full-time starter at right guard in ’21 and earning second-team All-Big Ten honors (13 games). Last year he improved to consensus first-team and second-team All-American this past year, when he moved out to left tackle. His steady presence on C.J. Stroud’s blindside enabled the Buckeyes to finish first (45.7) and second (44.2) respectively in points per game in FBS these past two seasons.

+ The grip strength, demeanor and leg-drive are all there in the run game and he really works up through contact to create that momentum
+ Out at tackle, he can really widen that edge and cover up guys responsible for contain, routinely allowing backs to stretch out and get out to the corner or cut underneath, At guard, you saw him come in from the side on nose-tackles to push them over into the opposite A-gap, so that guy can’t two-gap
+ Shows the hip mobility to reach-block three-techniques, as well as come off combos late and get a piece of the linebacker, while having some extra room for error if his angles up to the second level aren’t perfect
+ With the way he covers ground on zone concepts, Johnson can execute fold-blocks and make the job easier for the guard inside of him, to just seal the down-lineman
+ Swiftly establishes the inside foot and gets his base turned, in order to force edge defenders to have to go through him on the backside of gap schemes
+ Gets after second-level defenders with tremendous urgency and you actually see him seal off true MIKEs straight over the center at times
+ His dexterity to twist defenders and get his lower body turned simultaneously to open up lanes is highly impressive, You saw that when LBs try to blitz the play-side gap and he pins them away from it, to present a wide hole (B-gap at guard)
+ Displays good awareness for defenses walking down a linebacker late outside him and how that changes responsibilities on run schemes
+ Clearly has that mobility to play in space, with impressive success getting his hands on corners and safeties in the screen game

+ Johnson features a well-coordinated, patient kick-slide and uses his wingspan well to not present a free B-gap
+ Arms for days at just over 36 inches and edge rushers have to take wider angles consistently, while being able to stab with the inside arm at the near-shoulder to actively elongate those
+ With those long branches and strong upper body to control rushers even if his elbows are outside his frame
+ Smooth lateral mover, to stay in front of inside counters and help out on the interior in a hurry, if his man drops out
+ It also enables him to slide in front of interior linemen in the play-action game and full-line slides before they can even get that first step down regularly
+ When defenders sell out for the bull-rush and create movement, Johnson can increase his step frequency and knee bend to re-anchor effectively
+ No problem at all flipping and riding aggressive upfield rushers towards his own end-zone
+ Shows the ability to recover and still ride loopers off track, as he has to transition on delayed T-E twists
+ Playing at guard, you saw Johnson actively looking for work if he doesn’t have a direct assignment, delivering some significant chips from the side, And that transitioned along with moving out to tackle, where week one against Notre Dame, the next-closest rusher ended up being in the A-gap and he still made sure that guy hit the ground
+ Did allow two sacks last year, but only one other QB hit across 910 pass-blocking snaps since the start of 2021 (26 non-sack pressures)

– His base can get a little narrow as he churns his legs in the run game and it may lead to him landing on the turf more regularly against pros
– Tends to stop his feet when he throws his hands and heavily relies on the two-handed punch – he will need to adapt more independent hand usage
– His hands overall are pretty high and wide, particularly picking up loopers and blitzers
– There’s room to still get stronger, when it comes to swallowing initial power and snatch guys late, not allowing them to escape as plays are being extended
– Can overstride at times selling play-action and allow his D-end to slip inside of him

Based on his height and general skill-set, Johnson was a miscast at right guard as a redshirt freshman in 2021, but did show he can excel in the run game right away. Once he moved to his designated position at left tackle this past season, the pass-blocking skills were able to shine as well. He’s one of the smoothest athletes you will find for the position, yet has the strength in his hands to take control in both facets of the game. Where I do believe he needs to improve is not using two-handed punches regularly and his base to anchor against power leaves things to be desired at this point. Considering what an easy mover he is and the length he possesses to counter-act that, those should be fixable areas though. I do believe he’s best suited for a zone-based rushing attack, where his mobility and leg-drive can really shine, rather than just blowing defenders off the ball vertically, but there’s upside to utilize him even more as a puller across the formation or out towards the perimeter. I don’t see Johnson making it out of the top-15.

2. Broderick Jones, Georgia

6’5″, 315 pounds; JR

Right outside the top-10 overall recruits in 2020, Jones only started four games over his first two seasons (all at left tackle in 2021). He ook over on the blindside this past season and was absolutely dominant, paving the way for a Georgia offense that averaged 500 yards and 41.1 points per game (fifth nationally), which made it all the way to an undefeated championship season (their second straight title). Jones himself was named first-team All-SEC.

+ Jones has good girth in all the right areas, without any excess weight in the mid-section
+ Imposing road-grader in the run game, Gets after people whether the score is 0-0 or his team is up by 50
+ This guy regularly tosses the edge defender on the front-side of zone runs out of the way and forces linebackers to fill the B-gap in a hurry
+ Can absolutely blow D-tackles off their landmarks when coming in on an angle on double-teams, particularly in short-yardage and goal-line situations
+ If he gets underneath the arm-pit of linemen, he can wash them down and create significant cutback opportunities, And he has the grip strength to twist defenders out of running lanes, even if he can’t block down on an angle
+ Understands when he has to add a gather-step against wider alignments, to not presents easy opportunities for edge defenders to jump inside of his blocks
+ On combo-blocks his eyes are usually up and he doesn’t struggle to work up to the backer with space, with the force in his hands to shove them to the ground
+ Regularly was utilized as a puller on GT power, where he’s light on his feet as he skips out of his stance but heavy at contact, and has the reactionary agility to adjust on the fly
+ This dude is scary to be in front of on screens and pulling out to the corner, where most defenders try to go low on him, to avoid getting thrown around

+ Even if his technique isn’t perfect yet, Jones presents the athletic lower half and strong upper body to ride edge rushers off track
+ If defenders go into the chest of him, they quickly realize there’s not much they can do anymore
+ You rarely see guys turn the corner when engaged with Jones, where they try to dip-and-rip, but he still guides them enough off track to not affect the QB
+ He packs a lot of strength in those hands, to widen their arc significantly or push them into the pile, if they try to quickly crash inside
+ Linebackers trying to get around Jones on delayed blitzes seem to have no clue how to actually approach this and are content with just standing there with his arms extended
+ When Jones’ guy slants away from him and he’s unoccupied, he delivers some devastating rib-shots on somebody tangled up with one of his teammates
+ Watching the 2022 season-opener 49-3 destruction of Oregon, the pass-pro reps for Jones was so clean throughout the day and he completely shut guys out trying to work against him
+ Wasn’t responsible for a single sack and just nine other pressures across 470 pass-blocking snaps this past season
+ Ran the best 40 time among all O-linemen in Indy this year at 4.97 and his movement during the on-field drills was well-coordinated

– His feet can get a little heavy late and defenders are able to work off his blocks, where you’d want more flexion in the lower rather than upper half, and that’s in part due to imperfect hand-placement
– Too often in 2022, you’d see Jones drop his eyes when initiating contact in both facets of the game, and defenders being able to pull him off
– Makes himself vulnerable to inside counters on a regularly basis, when he should keep his shoulders and hips squared, but instead opens up to the edge rusher, who doesn’t even have the angle to beat him around the corner
– When he did face a legit speed-rusher in LSU’s B.J. Ojulari, you saw him punch with the outside hand and had that left foot in the air as well, creating a soft shoulder to get past
– Has to do a better job of coming to balance at times when working up the field in the screen game, as guys have the ability to side-step him

This is still clearly an ascending tackle prospect, who won’t turn 22 years old until after the draft and only logged 19 career starts at the Bulldogs. However, his natural talent stood out right away and he was already one of the premiere players at his position in his first season as a full-time starters, despite facing a loaded slate of SEC edge defenders. Now, some of those guys were actually the ones who gave him trouble, because they could threaten the edges of his frame off the snap and were more technically advanced, but there’s no reason to believe he won’t be able to get to that level sooner rather than later, with the natural power he possesses and the awareness he showed as a young player already. I want to see him eliminate this nasty little habit of not keeping his chin up, but in terms of brute force in the run game and ability to snatch up pass-rushers, he has a chance to turn into the most complete guy of the bunch.

3. Peter Skoronski, Northwestern

6’4”, 300 pounds; JR

Slightly outside the top-100 overall recruits in 2020, Skoronski stepped in at left tackle as a true freshman and was named to the All-Freshman team, when Rashawn Slater decided to sit out the season due to COVID concerns. Then he improved to a first-team All-Big Ten performer in 2021, which he repeated this past season, along with being a unanimous first-team All-American. His grandfather Bob Skoronski was a starter and team captain for all five of Vince Lombardi’s championship teams.

+ The best compliment I can give Skoronski is that his tape can be almost boring at times, because every rep is clean and there’s not much to note
+ His aiming points and angles are excellent for such a young player
+ Operates from a wide base and with good leg-drive, while lifting up through contact with his elbows in tight
+ Does well to establish positioning with the inside foot sealing edge defenders on the backside of run concepts
+ Gets underneath the arm pit of D-tackles on angular blocks and rides them down the line
+ Brings plus grip strength and ability to twist bodies to expand running lanes, along with the dexterity to keep his hands latched as defenders try to slip or turn away from contact
+ Consistently works with square shoulders and stays tight to his teammate on vertical combos, to maximize force and not allow defenders to split those
+ Patient and under control working up to the second level, being able to get under the chest with great consistency
+ Also getting out to the corner on fly sweeps or those completely horizontal handoffs, he rarely overruns targets, just blindly hustling out there
+ Somehow people are inferring that Skoronski isn’t a great athlete, when he tested in the 70th percentile or better among all combine events other than the three-cone and his jumps were 96th and 97th percentile respectively

+ Already a very sound and comfortable pass-protector, who consistently is first off the ball, gets to his landmarks and doesn’t throw his technique out of the window
+ Shows an understanding for the depth of the pocket and how to manipulate rush angles, along with the easy lateral movement to mirror guys across multiple moves
+ Adjusts the length of his initial dependent on where combat will occur and is able beat wide-nine alignments to the spot
+ His hands are so consistent with landing inside the frame of rushers and controlling reps, because they typically stay attached throughout
+ Varies his approach and excels at using his arms in independent fashion, whether he’s trying to widen guys with the inside hand or wants to take charge off them on power rushes
+ Rarely does his weight shift too far to the outside foot and he’s ready to negate angles as guys are trying to slice through the inside shoulder
+ Extends his inside arm when deciphering through the pressure and is ready to redirect towards guys slanting to the B-gap if there’s no threat off the edge
+ His feel for shuffling along and how to pick up loopers with the two-handed strike, to guide their path is impressive for a young player
+ Allowed just two sacks on nearly 700 snaps as a true freshman and did the same in ’21 on over 800, along with 18 additional pressures, However he quietly just had his best season in that regard (one sack, two QB hits and three hurries)

– The big hold-up with Skoronski of course is only having 32 and ¼-inch arms, while I also believe he played below 310-pound mark
– You see edge rushers really create problems for him with long-arm maneuvers, where he can’t place his hands or has the kind of super-strong base to just swallow those
– It can also show up in the run ground where guys can just out-reach him and therefore pull him off when leaning into contact
– Doesn’t create a whole lot of knock-back at first contact with his strike generally and you rarely see him take linebackers for a ride, the way you’d like to
– While I love with how much control he plays, at times I’d appreciate a little more urgency to just negate space in the first instance rather than trying to establish position

At the risk of sounding like a cop-out, it’s pretty easy to find a comparison in terms of player profile for Skoronski, if we just go to the guy he replaced at Northwestern, in Rashawn Slater. I do believe the now-Pro Bowler was a greater athlete, particularly with some of the insane stuff he did in the weightroom, to balance out length concern. However, Skoronski is clearly the most technically advanced tackle in the 2023 class. The way he fits his hands and is able to transfer force from the ground up in the run game, along with reading rushers and using different combat-maneuvers to counter them, are tremendous. There’s not much to criticize on tape, but you just wonder how high his ceiling may be, due to always having a disadvantage in that one area. Ultimately, I believe a team will start him out at tackle and he will play it at a pretty high level, but he transitions inside a couple of years into his pro career. Having him down at number three almost feels wrong, but it only speaks to the strength of the top of this class, as Skoronski will be a top-15 overall prospect for me.

4. Darnell Wright, Tennessee

6’6”, 335 pounds; SR

The number two offensive tackle recruit in 2019 behind only Alabama standout and now-Giant Evan Neal, Wright started seven of eleven games as a true freshman (five at right tackle, two at right guard) and then nine of ten available for in year two (all at RT). In 2021 he started all 13 games at left tackle and helped the Tennessee offense score a team-record 511 points, before moving back to the right side this past season, when the Vols immediately broke that record (599) and Dwight was recognized individually as a first-team All-SEC performer.

+ When you look at this guy, everything you see screams “power” at you
+ Shows a natural ability to sink his hips and work up through contact, to create movement on angular blocks
+ You’re just not going to rock this guy’s pads backwards or squeeze him down on backside seal-blocks
+ Has the explosiveness out of his stance to work cross-/fold-blocks and skip pulls in the run game
+ For a man his size, the agility in short areas and flexibility in his lower half to reach-block edge defenders on fly sweeps is pretty impressive
+ Just engulfs smaller bodies stepping down or replacing edge defenders, when he comes across the line on kick-outs
+ Really strong with that inside arm, to extend and create that little bit of extra movement, while riding bodies on the interior into the trash when given the opportunity
+ Can create some significant momentum on B-gap defenders as the angular element to combo blocks by accelerating his feet through the target
+ Showcases the dexterity to keep his hands in place with the hips of the man he’s responsible for, as they’re trying to slice past, and he rides them off their landmarks
+ Doesn’t look uncomfortable getting out in space and has the natural power to put defenders on the ground by just getting a hand on them

+ His feet are quick enough to match legit speed off the edge and then sit down to not allow himself to be ridden into the quarterback’s space at the top of the arc
+ Shows good awareness for that platform of the guy padding the ball back there and when to flip with the rusher, to ride him past that point
+ His base is so strong, that even when rushers seem to set up speed-to-power well, Wright can stymie their charge and force them to look for different strategies
+ Can work in some independent hand usage to keep rushers in line with his frame, along with really snatching cloth and dropping his hips, in order to take control of reps
+ Displays impressive body-control, to quickly puts his outside foot back down and mirror inside moves, even by twitchy guys at nearly 100 pounds less
+ Once rushers get off balance, he can quickly put them on the ground and exploits of the opportunity to jump on top of them
+ Extremely battle-tested against a collection of impressive SEC edge rushers and more than held his own – Allowed just one hurry all day against Alabama in 2022, largely going up against a lock for the top-five in Will Anderson, who simply couldn’t work his typical speed-to-power against him
+ Didn’t give up a single sack and just eight total pressures across 507 pass-blocking snaps this past season

– Carries a little excess weight in the mid-section I’d say and he’s not quite up to par with the top-three guys in terms of foot quickness
– Doesn’t consistently play up to his size and brings the aggression to create displacement in the run game, while other times he gets his weight shifted too far out in front as he really goes for it (partially due to the type of offense the Volunteers ran)
– Gets too far over his skis at times and ends up stumbling forward when he can’t connect with his hands as D-linemen reduce their surface area
– While you like the mobility to get to the second level, he doesn’t break down and secure blocks consistently enough to take care of his assignments
– Regularly late off the snap and has a certain up-kick to his pass-sets, which didn’t become as much of a problems with less than a quarter of his work being labelled as “true pass-sets” by PFF (tons of RPOs, screens, etc.)

I’ve been a fan of Wright for a while now and he’s been ascending his draft stock throughout this process. He came in at a massive 342 pounds for Senior Bowl week, yet he showcased impressive movement skills, effortlessly mirroring a couple of spin moves, along with taking the fight to more power-based string, showcasing his strong upper half. Then he moved around extremely well during the on-field drills at the combine and you heard those bags pop when he landed his punches in pass-pro. This guy has 2746 career snaps with full years starting at both left and right tackle, put together an incredible track record against a murderous row of SEC edge defenders. So I have no doubt that he should and will go in the first round. I’d like to see him enforce his power on a more consistent basis and there’s a little bit of a tweak that he has to work on his kick-slide, but I don’t think there’s much of a gap between him and what is generally accepted as the “big three” at offensive tackle.

5. Dawand Jones, Ohio State

6’6”, 350 pounds; SR

Just outside the top-1000 overall recruits in 2019, Jones appeared in nine games as a true freshman and then in six of eight contests in the COVID-shortened following campaign, including his first start, In 2021, he started all 13 games and was a second-team All-Big Ten selection for the Buckeyes, which he repeated this past season, Then last year he was a second-team All-American, as a mainstay on that right edge

+ Massive upper half and can knock defenders off balance when he just lands those hands in the run game, And with the long arms he can deliver that last push to get the man further off track to create room late
+ I thought overall Jones’ urgency off the snap and willingness to impose himself physically was a lot better in 2022
+ You see him dish out some literal two-handed shoves to blow the front-side wide open
+ When he grabs the shoulder-plate and extends though, you see put guys flat on their backs at times, especially linebackers mugged up in the gap
+ If D-ends try to crash across him face on the backside of zone runs, he will wash them way down the line and optically show the ball-carrier to cut back behind him
+ Because of how massive he is, when he tries to reach-block guys on the edge, they often try to peak around and get off balance, to where he can ride them along and allow the back to stay behind his block
+ Yet, if he’s tasked with simply sealing the back-side, extending that outside arm in the chest of edge guys and bringing the opposite hip-around is very effective
+ When he arrives at the party, with no direct assignment, he can help move the significantly and allow the ball-carrier to hide behind that wall or push through it
+ Some of his tape is just hilarious to watch, when he puts guys on the ground seemingly without breaking a sweat

+ Offers a quick jump out of his stance to cut off the angle for edge rushers, has his hands ready at his mid-section and is patient with his punch
+ The way he snatches and traps guys when they do get closer to his body makes him basically negate guys completely
+ His insane 7’6” wingspan allows him to constantly put a hand on defenders before those guys could even get to his frame, and it gives him a ton of room for error in his technique
+ If guys try to loop wide around him and don’t actively try to find an angle, he’s fine sitting back and waiting there, but if he does go for it, those long arms can really stymie rushers in their approach
+ Even if the outside hand is swatted away, he can push guys further off track by still reaching them with the other arm
+ When he does overset and rushers create that lane to the quarterback seemingly going underneath, Jones is typically able to ride those guys across the QB’s face, to leave him unaffected
+ Buries guys underneath himself with regularity, if they shift their momentum too far out in front
+ After surrendering three sacks and eight other pressures in 2021, Jones didn’t even allow his quarterback to be hit once due to him last year and only hurried five times
+ PFF awarded him with their highest pass-blocking efficiency of any draft-eligible tackle at 99.4 last season

– You see Jones just throw his hands and not move his lower body at times, when he can’t get his body positioned accordingly throughout run plays
– Appears disoriented when his initial assignment is changed post-snap and he has to come up solutions on the fly in that regard
– The way he puts his hands on the face-mask of defenders and some of the pull-downs will be flagged more regularly at the pro level
– Short-setting guys and forcing them to go way around him, because of his size and length, was an effective strategy at the college level, but that won’t fly in the NFL
– At this point, Jones does get by with his massive frame and length along with natural strength, which won’t be as prevalent going against pro players, who will force him to get on their level technically

Jones only took part in the first practice at the Senior Bowl, but he just stood out from the moment he stepped on the field with his giganteous size and unheard of wingspan. Edge defenders quickly realized that they weren’t going to get through his chest, but the one rep that really stood out to me came during individual run-blocking, where he was supposed to reach-block his man but didn’t gain enough ground laterally with that first step, yet he was able to create so much torque on the far-shoulder of his man, that he ended up turning and pinning that guy inside anyway. That’s what you’re dealing with here – an absolute mountain of a man, whose strength and length give him a lot of room for error and when he puts it altogether, he can dominate people. Now, while he has definitely shown technical development, he does heavily rely on his natural gifts and will have to overhaul his pass-sets in order to actually cut off angles for more talented and crafty NFL rushers than he’s faced so far. However, he has things you can’t teach and the potential(!) to become a more athletic version of Orlando Brown down the road.

6. Anton Harrison, Oklahoma

6’4″, 310 pounds; JR

A four-star recruit in 2020, Harrison already logged over 1000 snaps at left tackle through his first two seasons with the Sooners. As a junior, he started all but on one of 12 regular season game on the blindside yet again (one at right tackle and opted out of the Cheez-It Bowl) and received more recognition on a national scale, when he was named a first-team All-Big 12 performer.

+ Presents an athletic frame with minimal excess weight and long arms (34 and ¼)
+ Can create some knock-back as he lands his hands inside the frame of defenders, shoving linebackers off track regularly
+ Last season I thought he was more assertive near the point of attack, to drive-block edge defenders or block down on three-techniques and get guys off their landmarks
+ You see him lift stand up D-tackles in order for fellow linemen wrap around behind him regularly
+ On the backside of wide zone runs, if linebackers try to shoot the B-gaps Harrison hits and rides them way down the line, to open up massive cutback lanes behind him
+ When guys try to dip underneath him or get around blocks, Harrison typically rides them towards his own end-zone to blow the front-side open
+ Has the quick burst to help secure the down-linemen on combo blocks and then deliver some force to open up a lane inside of them as somebody from the second level behind it steps down
+ Bends off the inside foot and uncoils force through defenders in the hole wrapping around on powecounter schemes
+ Frequently is able to face-plant defenders as he catches them off balance, with one foot off the ground, with the triceps strength to extend and push them down
+ Makes the job of his teammates a lot easier, when he’s passing off down-linemen on front-side combos by extending with the inside arm and allowing the guy next to him to bring his base and secure the block
+ Rarely overruns his targets in space and forces guys to work around him consistently, being able to put his hands on third-level defenders in the screen game
+ His 4.98 in the 40 was tied for the second-best mark among all offensive linemen at the combine

+ There’s good rhythm and a certain calmness in his kick-slide, with the light feet to guide edge defenders around the loop
+ Times up his strike as rushers try to throw their hands, frequently hitting them as they’re off balance and taking them to the ground every once in a while
+ His initial hand-placement may not be great always and he gets caught with his elbow out wide, but he does work to re-fit them and finds way to gain control
+ And he finds ways to maximize his length to out-reach his man
+ Can really snatch rushers as he grabs cloth of guys trying to work through him, without giving them a lane to escape
+ Plays under good control generally and doesn’t overreact to defensive movement, picking up games and mirroring guys with space to work
+ Smoothly transitions from the slanting linemen to the looper on E-T twists
+ Has some impressive recovery moments on tape, where rushers have him on skates and he’s somehow able to drop his anchor due to his high-level balance
+ Allowed just one sack and eight hurries (no QB hits) across 447 pass-blocking snaps in '22

– Can’t reduce his height very well and you can see them roll his weight over his shoulders at times trying to establish contact with smaller linebackers
– Doesn’t set the tone in the run game like you’d want to see for that size, having to become more effective with his hand-placement and re-work the way he transitions force from the ground up
– You see some of that as well in the pass game, when his chest folds forward instead of working with sink in his hips and then he kind of tries to chase after guys up the arc, where if timed correctly can leave the inside lane to the QB completely free
– Carries his hands fairly low and comes in wide with the punch, to where guys who sell out on attacking his chest can take him for a ride a few times, as he doesn’t seem ready to land his hands – You see that at times when he’s not ready for somebody coming his way on twists
– There’s a few reps, where he tries to ride edge rushers up the field, but he doesn’t maintain contact and that guy is able to slip underneath him

It’s never easy projecting tackles in particular going from offensive systems that relied heavily on a few run concepts, off which they build their RPO game and offer limited reps for pass-protectors to prove themselves. The areas of weakness in Harrison’s game right now are pretty clear – he struggles to bend at the knees and maximizing his power in the run game, while his hands and feet aren’t married regularly enough in pass-pro. On the Brightside, he does bring plenty of shock in his hands and well-coordinated movement to work to the second level, while being light on his feet to deal with speed off the edge and being able to clamp down on guys once he takes control of reps. There is a fairly steep learning curve in front of him, but he has all the physical tools and the mindset to become a plus starter on the blindside, which is why he regularly finds his name late in first-round mock drafts.

7. Matthew Bergeron, Syracuse

6’5”, 320 pounds; RS JR

Just inside the top-1000 overall recruits in 2019, Bergeron played in 12 and started five game as a true freshman. Other than missing two games this past season, he started all of the other 34 games, with all but three of those at left tackle. He earned honorable mention and then second-team All-ACC accolades most recently, whilst being a team captain in 2022.

+ Nice girth throughout his frame and effectively rolls his hips through contact to create movement in the run game
+ Even with sub-optimal hand-placement, he can widen the edge pretty consistently on the front-side of zone concepts
+ Shows a strong grip with the inside hand, which doesn’t allow edge defenders to back-door or slip his blocks typically
+ When having to block down on three-techniques who aggressively try to get through his gap, Bergerson does well to get his hand on the defenders’ hip and use that momentum against that guy
+ Does well to on hinge-blocks and just get the job done when tasked with sealing guys on the backside of concepts
+ In formations with a tight-end next to him, where the C-gap was uncovered, Bergeron effectively was able to able to pick up and ride smaller bodies at the edge of the box out of the picture
+ You really like what he presents blocking on the move, sweeping around the edge and taking linebackers for a ride or blowing DBs trying to set the edge out of the picture
+ Was utilized on some skip-pulls, where he would wrap around on GT power plays and looked pretty light on his feet to get to his landmarks

+ Shows a real plan in his approach as a pass-protector, changing up between quick sets, jumping out of his stance aggressively versus speed-based rushers, etc.
+ Covers a ton of ground in his kick-sets in order to counter true speed-balls off the edge
+ Carries his hands at his hips and is ready to punch and counter the movement of rushers
+ Will land some surprise stabs quickly at the chest of rushers, to throw off the timing of the moves they want to set up
+ Displays the body-control to re-anchor even when it looks like power rushers are under control of reps
+ Transitions well on twists by the D-line, whether it’s the strong base to absorb force by the initial slanter or the lateral agility to slide in front of the secondary looper
+ Quickly redirects from the initial kick to a lateral shuffle in order to help out or take over stunting interior defenders, if his man on the edge peels off
+ Generally can use the momentum of defender to guide them away from the quarterback
+ Takes advantages of chances to pull off-balance rushers to the ground and pins them down there
+ While he was officially charged for five sacks by PFF last season, in terms of total pressures he was at 12 compared to 11 the year prior, with 770 combined pass-blocking snaps

– His hands regularly start off high and wide already and he minimizes the force he can apply in the run game, as well as make him vulnerable to get flagged, because the refs can see everything
– Pro Football Focus only credited his with 33 positively graded run plays last season, which I wouldn’t judge as such (in terms of a net plus), but in terms of having his hands latched onto the aiming points, that number is probably about right
– Tends to pick up his inside foot too much, as he’s trying to gain ground vertically in his pass-sets and becomes vulnerable against guys with a great long-arm – Clemson’s Myles Murphy was in control of that matchup for most of the day, even if Myles didn’t get to finish many plays
– Edge rushers frequently are the ones to get their arms inside and Bergeron ends up with his elbows out wide, which limits his ability to slow down power

Bergeron has nearly put together the exact same resume during his pre-draft process as Tennessee’s Darnell Wright. Throughout Senior Bowl week, I thought his movement skills in pass-protection were highly impressive, not allowing guys to gain an angle on the quarterback, as well as being able to mirror and shut down some challenging counter moves. And while he didn’t test at the combine, he had a tremendous on-field workout. He looked so light-footed, changed directions and reacted to the coaches’ indications without any issues. His hand-placement in both facets of the game drove me wild at times on tape, but that area already looked improved down in Mobile and I also understand that he will receive the type of coaching to see major benefits. How well he carries 320 pounds, being able to cover ground vertically and horizontal in protection, is rare – and he doesn’t even yet take great advantage of his play-strength all the time. I would not be shocked if he ends up being one of the last few picks of the first round and he’s probably a top-50 lock.
