Welcome new readers. Please start with chapter one https://www.reddit.com/HFY/comments/11ai7iv/last_of_the_defenders_ch_01/

Allah leaned against one of the tables, purring softly. Li was beside her swiftly, gripping her shoulder reassuringly.
“But we’re not gonna let that happen,” the human promised. “And you’re going to help.”
“I knew they were evil,” Allah started to say but stopped. She bit her lip, tail flicking up a cloud of dust in the long disused room. The lights flickered again and the U’knock clawed at the glow stick on the table beside her, holding it before her, eager to have something stable to hold onto.
Li patted her shoulder again and turned to the table with the helmets. She lifted one to Allah’s head, pursed her lips and set it down. She picked up another, nodding in satisfaction, and began taking it apart. “I’m sure they think the same thing about humans,” she said.
“Who would care what they think?” Allah tried to keep the bile from her voice.
“PsyOps,” Li answered, as if the strange word should explain everything. When Allah only lowered her ear in confusion she said “‘If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither, you will fail in every battle’.” The human smiled. “The swarmers consider us a meddling subspecies that steals the resources that are rightfully theirs. We keep getting in their way, preventing ‘progress’ and forming unnatural alliances with other, lesser, organisms.”
“You sound like you have spoken to them.”
Li nodded. She removed two panels from the top of the helmet. “I’ve spoken to millions of them,” she admitted, then said softly, “I was probably the last voice most of them ever heard.”
She lifted the helmet and adjusted it to fit atop Allah’s head. “These millions,” the U’knock asked, “are all dead?”
The Defender nodded. “Very much so,” Li’s tone was light but the human face was a stone mask in the green light. The overheads flickered like lightning, casting her in hard brightness before the green gloom returned to paint dark shadows under her eyes and mouth. It made her look more predatory; a hunter hiding in tall grass, bent to pounce.
Li removed more sections from the helmet, the odd thing sliding down around Allah’s ears.
“I would like to know how to kill that many.”
A different kind of shadow crossed the human’s face, a sadness that cracked through the hardness.
Li turned to the panels she had removed, taking a pair of tiny buttons out. She held one up and turned Allah’s head, trying to fit the button in the U’knock’s ear.
“Let's hope you don’t have to find out,” Li said, trying a different button from a different helmet. “It was a pretty expensive day for me.
“And I’m still paying the tab.”
Li patted Allah’s shoulder again. The U’knock turned to look at her.
“Looks like that fits,” the human forced a grin. She handed Allah another button. “How's it feel?”
“Strange,” Allah admitted. She shook her head and felt the button wiggle inside her ear. “What is this?”
“Virtual Reality Education Helmet,” Li grinned again but the smile did not reach her eyes. “Welcome to Primary School.”
Allah tapped the thing on her head with a claw. It was stiff, but not hard like bronze. And it held an odor--several--of something cheesy and vinegary and a little moldy all at once.
“Careful,” Li cautioned. “Plastic that old can get pretty brittle.”
The U’knock wondered why humans would use something so obviously inferior if they could make things with the new metal. Then she considered her mother’s Com’Cha and retracted her claw from the gift. Even if a warrior offered a replacement made entirely of new metal, the old bronze weapon held a special place in her life.
Perhaps these helmets held such prestige for Li’s people?
“This will teach me to fight?” she asked, trying to muster the proper amount of reverence for the object.
“No,” Li shook her head, “I’ll take on that job. And Jung, too. This,” she tapped the helmet on Allah’s head, “will teach you basic commands and instructions for ground equipment and the extravehicular combat suit. You remember the mess hall? How hard it was just to get hot water from Demeter?” Allah nodded, perking and flattening her ears, “That's because you weren’t ‘thinking’ the right words. We’ll start you out with English because Demeter uses that by default. Once you have basic commands memorized, we’ll move to general tactics, strategy, and combat.”
“You used this,” Allah touched the helmet. It was cool, hard, alien in her head, “as a child?”
Li chuckled. “No,” she admitted. “V-REHs are intended to acclimate xenoforms--species other than human--to our ways. From farmer to front line fighter, there’s a training program for just about any job.
“That's also why the helmets are so modular,” she gestured to the discarded pieces. “They can accommodate almost any ‘head’ shaped configuration; kitty cat ears, literal four eyes. In some cases, like the Shoo, they can accommodate a species with no head at all.
“I gotta get back to work,” Li left the mess where it lay and strode toward the door. “Demeter, offload basic command lessons one through thirty to a microcore at the Romeo-02 terminal.
“Can we trust Demeter to provide proper instructions?” Allah asked. Fears from last night--particularly one about melting brains--crossed her thoughts as they strode down the hall.
“I’ll do a quick file check to make sure but,” Li looked over her shoulder. She chuckled at Allah’s expression: ears flat, lips pushed out and constantly glancing upward to try to “see” the thing on her head. “V-REHs can’t hurt you. Maybe trick you into walking into a wall, but that won’t be an issue; the basic lessons are designed to be used while seated.
Do you need to poop or anything before you start? You could be in there for a while.
Allah nodded, eliciting another trip to another room similar to the showers aboard Star dancer, filled with more tiny rooms. This one was cream colored, and inside each room was a tiny cream colored throne with a bowl in the seat.
Li stood outside, giving instructions on the throne’s--the bidet toilet’s--use. Then it was back to the room of warriors--the security station, Li corrected--and Allah’s first lesson.
“Touch the V-REH,” Li lifted her hands to her own head, pressing her palms to her temples, “here. It’ll run through a self adjustment process and I’ll link it to your nanites. That should speed things up a lot.”
“Will it hurt?” Allah asked, “as much as last time?”
“This shouldn’t hurt at all,” Li said with a grin, “so if it does either take it off immediately or ask me to. It might be disorienting at first though so get comfy.”
Allah returned to the corner and settled on the hard floor, sitting cross legged. As she did, Li returned to and began tapping on the face of the monitor. A soft click sounded and a tiny shiny stone flickered in the faltering lights. Allah had still not touched the V-REH when Li moved the stone to another hole, pressed on her keyboard with her fingers and nodded in satisfaction. She turned in the tiny throne and regarded Allah quizzically.
“I can’t initiate a session for you,” Li said by way of explanation. “It’s designed to be voluntary, so nothing can. I can disengage you but that's about it.” She stood, walked the short distance to Allah’s corner and held out the stone to the U’knock. “The V-REH will need to calibrate with you, then recognise it needs this,” Li pressed the stone into Allah’s paw.
“I’ll be right here if you need anything,” the human pointed to the monitor, turned and strode to the throne.
Allah looked at the tiny stone. In the flickering lights, she had thought it was white. Up close, however, it looked more of a pale green. She carefully picked it up to inspect. As she did, it moved away from the light of the glowing stick beside her and captured the myriad hues projected by Li’s monitor. The stone shifted in color again, a dizzying burst of different colors packed so close together they appeared white again.
Why was she hesitating? Allah had pledged to help defend her planet, had stood before the quorum of Umati’clam and professed it as fact. Now, she dithered. Li had returned to her work, finger beating a rhythm like raindrops on the surface of the table. Allah felt alone, ignored. And part of her realized that she was. Li had good reason to--she was working to save Allah’s people--and to grow upset because her friend so easily turned to the task was beyond petty.
“What if I don’t?” Allah asked aloud.
Li’s fingers stopped suddenly, then the human placed her hands in her lap. She did not turn to look at Allah, but sat with the stone mask again and stared at the monitor.
“It's your choice, Allah,” she said slowly, “and it’s not one I can make for you. If you’re asking ‘Will I throw you out on the street?’ or ‘Will we stop looking for your father?’ the answer to both is no. I took you in last night, frankly, because you had the lowest chance of survival of those around me. Those that,” Li sighed, pulling on the thin cored that held her hair in a tail. “Those that had a chance.”
She shook her head, combing her fingers through the long, thick black hair. “I know you’re worried that you won’t be much help. And you’d rather be out there,” she gestured to the screen, wiggling her fingers. The glyphs disappeared to be replaced by images from seven times two plus two drones patrolling the city and the surrounding wasteland. “Looking for him right now.”
“That’s not what I--”
“And I know you’re scared,” Li interrupted. “And angry. You’ve got good reason to be. This…won’t be much fun when the shooting starts.” She did turn now, the sad smile that would not reach her eyes painting her lips. “But you were right,” she said. “I do need a friend. I’d like that friend to still be you in the morning.”
The human shrugged her shoulders. “I'm sorry to put that on you. I don't want to add to your burdens.” And Li turned back to the monitor and began tapping again.
Allah did not know what to say. She sat in the corner, watching Li return to work. Allah had felt alone, afraid. And angry, yes. But what must Li be feeling right now? Her own people had abandoned her quest. She stood in defiance of the bullies and defenders now.
This planet's protector.
“When I finish with this machine,” Allah asked, “we will pop the corn and speak of mates?”
The corner of Li’s mouth rose. “And watch Journey To The West while I paint your claws.”
Allah nodded. This was a burden she could, would, must happily bear. To stand beside Li, no matter the cost. Not out of honor, nor pride. Not even to save her people.
She would do this because her friend asked her to.
The U’knock raised her paws to either side of the helmet, pressing gently.

2023.03.30 05:21 eoeden When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d

When lilacs last in the door-yard bloom’d,
And the great star early droop’d in the western sky in the night,
I mourn’d—and yet shall mourn with ever-returning spring.

O ever-returning spring! trinity sure to me you bring;
Lilac blooming perennial, and drooping star in the west,
And thought of him I love.


O powerful, western, fallen star!
O shades of night! O moody, tearful night!
O great star disappear’d! O the black murk that hides the star!
O cruel hands that hold me powerless! O helpless soul of me!
O harsh surrounding cloud, that will not free my soul!


In the door-yard fronting an old farm-house, near the white-wash’d palings,
Stands the lilac bush, tall-growing, with heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
With many a pointed blossom, rising, delicate, with the perfume strong I love,
With every leaf a miracle......and from this bush in the door-yard,
With delicate-color’d blossoms, and heart-shaped leaves of rich green,
A sprig, with its flower, I break.


In the swamp, in secluded recesses,
A shy and hidden bird is warbling a song.

Solitary, the thrush,
The hermit, withdrawn to himself, avoiding the settlements,
Sings by himself a song.

Song of the bleeding throat!
Death’s outlet song of life—(for well, dear brother, I know
If thou wast not gifted to sing, thou would’st surely die.)


Over the breast of the spring, the land, amid cities,
Amid lanes, and through old woods, (where lately the violets peep’d from the ground, spotting the gray debris;)
Amid the grass in the fields each side of the lanes—passing the endless grass;
Passing the yellow-spear’d wheat, every grain from its shroud in the dark-brown fields uprising;
Passing the apple-tree blows of white and pink in the orchards;
Carrying a corpse to where it shall rest in the grave,
Night and day journeys a coffin.


Coffin that passes through lanes and streets,
Through day and night, with the great cloud darkening the land,
With the pomp of the inloop’d flags, with the cities draped in black,
With the show of the States themselves, as of crape-veil’d women, standing,
With processions long and winding, and the flambeaus of the night,
With the countless torches lit—with the silent sea of faces, and the unbared heads,
With the waiting depot, the arriving coffin, and the sombre faces,
With dirges through the night, with the thousand voices rising strong and solemn;
With all the mournful voices of the dirges, pour’d around the coffin,
The dim-lit churches and the shuddering organs—Where amid these you journey,
With the tolling, tolling bells’ perpetual clang;
Here! coffin that slowly passes,
I give you my sprig of lilac.


(Nor for you, for one, alone;
Blossoms and branches green to coffins all I bring:
For fresh as the morning—thus would I carol a song for you, O sane and sacred death.

All over bouquets of roses,
O death! I cover you over with roses and early lilies;
But mostly and now the lilac that blooms the first,
Copious, I break, I break the sprigs from the bushes;
With loaded arms I come, pouring for you,
For you, and the coffins all of you, O death.)


O western orb, sailing the heaven!
Now I know what you must have meant, as a month since we walk’d,
As we walk’d up and down in the dark blue so mystic,
As we walk’d in silence the transparent shadowy night,
As I saw you had something to tell, as you bent to me night after night,
As you droop’d from the sky low down, as if to my side, (while the other stars all look’d on;)
As we wander’d together the solemn night, (for something, I know not what, kept me from sleep;)
As the night advanced, and I saw on the rim of the west, ere you went, how full you were of woe;
As I stood on the rising ground in the breeze, in the cold transparent night,
As I watch’d where you pass’d and was lost in the netherward black of the night,
As my soul, in its trouble, dissatisfied, sank, as where you, sad orb,
Concluded, dropt in the night, and was gone.


Sing on, there in the swamp!
O singer bashful and tender! I hear your notes—I hear your call;
I hear—I come presently—I understand you;
But a moment I linger—for the lustrous star has detain’d me;
The star, my departing comrade, holds and detains me.


O how shall I warble myself for the dead one there I loved?
And how shall I deck my song for the large sweet soul that has gone?
And what shall my perfume be, for the grave of him I love?

Sea-winds, blown from east and west,
Blown from the eastern sea, and blown from the western sea, till there on the prairies meeting:
These, and with these, and the breath of my chant,
I perfume the grave of him I love.


O what shall I hang on the chamber walls?
And what shall the pictures be that I hang on the walls,
To adorn the burial-house of him I love?

Pictures of growing spring, and farms, and homes,
With the Fourth-month eve at sundown, and the gray smoke lucid and bright,
With floods of the yellow gold of the gorgeous, indolent, sinking sun, burning, expanding the air;
With the fresh sweet herbage under foot, and the pale green leaves of the trees prolific;
In the distance the flowing glaze, the breast of the river, with a wind-dapple here and there;
With ranging hills on the banks, with many a line against the sky, and shadows;
And the city at hand, with dwellings so dense, and stacks of chimneys,
And all the scenes of life, and the workshops, and the workmen homeward returning.


Lo! body and soul! this land!
Mighty Manhattan, with spires, and the sparkling and hurrying tides, and the ships;
The varied and ample land—the South and the North in the light—Ohio’s shores, and flashing Missouri,
And ever the far-spreading prairies, cover’d with grass and corn.

Lo! the most excellent sun, so calm and haughty;
The violet and purple morn, with just-felt breezes;
The gentle, soft-born, measureless light;
The miracle, spreading, bathing all—the fulfill’d noon;
The coming eve, delicious—the welcome night, and the stars,
Over my cities shining all, enveloping man and land.


Sing on! sing on, you gray-brown bird!
Sing from the swamps, the recesses—pour your chant from the bushes;
Limitless out of the dusk, out of the cedars and pines.

Sing on, dearest brother—warble your reedy song;
Loud human song, with voice of uttermost woe.

O liquid, and free, and tender!
O wild and loose to my soul! O wondrous singer!
You only I hear......yet the star holds me, (but will soon depart;)
Yet the lilac, with mastering odor, holds me.


Now while I sat in the day, and look’d forth,
In the close of the day, with its light, and the fields of spring, and the farmer preparing his crops,
In the large unconscious scenery of my land, with its lakes and forests,
In the heavenly aerial beauty, (after the perturb’d winds, and the storms;)
Under the arching heavens of the afternoon swift passing, and the voices of children and women,
The many-moving sea-tides,—and I saw the ships how they sail’d,
And the summer approaching with richness, and the fields all busy with labor,
And the infinite separate houses, how they all went on, each with its meals and minutia of daily usages;
And the streets, how their throbbings throbb’d, and the cities pent—lo! then and there,
Falling upon them all, and among them all, enveloping me with the rest,
Appear’d the cloud, appear’d the long black trail;
And I knew Death, its thought, and the sacred knowledge of death.


Then with the knowledge of death as walking one side of me,
And the thought of death close-walking the other side of me,
And I in the middle, as with companions, and as holding the hands of companions,
I fled forth to the hiding receiving night, that talks not,
Down to the shores of the water, the path by the swamp in the dimness,
To the solemn shadowy cedars, and ghostly pines so still.

And the singer so shy to the rest receiv’d me;
The gray-brown bird I know, receiv’d us comrades three;
And he sang what seem’d the carol of death, and a verse for him I love.

From deep secluded recesses,
From the fragrant cedars, and the ghostly pines so still,
Came the carol of the bird.

And the charm of the carol rapt me,
As I held, as if by their hands, my comrades in the night;
And the voice of my spirit tallied the song of the bird.



Come, lovely and soothing Death,
Undulate round the world, serenely arriving, arriving,
In the day, in the night, to all, to each,
Sooner or later, delicate Death.

Prais’d be the fathomless universe,
For life and joy, and for objects and knowledge curious;
And for love, sweet love—But praise! praise! praise!
For the sure-enwinding arms of cool-enfolding Death.

Dark Mother, always gliding near, with soft feet,
Have none chanted for thee a chant of fullest welcome?

Then I chant it for thee—I glorify thee above all;
I bring thee a song that when thou must indeed come, come unfalteringly.

Approach, strong Deliveress!
When it is so—when thou hast taken them, I joyously sing the dead,
Lost in the loving, floating ocean of thee,
Laved in the flood of thy bliss, O Death.

From me to thee glad serenades,
Dances for thee I propose, saluting thee—adornments and feastings for thee;
And the sights of the open landscape, and the high-spread sky, are fitting,
And life and the fields, and the huge and thoughtful night.

The night, in silence, under many a star;
The ocean shore, and the husky whispering wave, whose voice I know;
And the soul turning to thee, O vast and well-veil’d Death,
And the body gratefully nestling close to thee.

Over the tree-tops I float thee a song!
Over the rising and sinking waves—over the myriad fields, and the prairies wide;
Over the dense-pack’d cities all, and the teeming wharves and ways,
I float this carol with joy, with joy to thee, O Death!


To the tally of my soul,
Loud and strong kept up the gray-brown bird,
With pure, deliberate notes, spreading, filling the night.

Loud in the pines and cedars dim,
Clear in the freshness moist, and the swamp-perfume;
And I with my comrades there in the night.

While my sight that was bound in my eyes unclosed,
As to long panoramas of visions.


I saw askant the armies;
And I saw, as in noiseless dreams, hundreds of battle-flags;
Borne through the smoke of the battles, and pierc’d with missiles, I saw them,
And carried hither and yon through the smoke, and torn and bloody;
And at last but a few shreds left on the staffs, (and all in silence,)
And the staffs all splinter’d and broken.

I saw battle-corpses, myriads of them,
And the white skeletons of young men—I saw them;
I saw the debris and debris of all the dead soldiers of the war;
But I saw they were not as was thought;
They themselves were fully at rest—they suffer’d not;
The living remain’d and suffer’d—the mother suffer’d,
And the wife and the child, and the musing comrade suffer’d,
And the armies that remain’d suffer’d.


Passing the visions, passing the night;
Passing, unloosing the hold of my comrades’ hands;
Passing the song of the hermit bird, and the tallying song of my soul,
(Victorious song, death’s outlet song, yet varying, ever-altering song,
As low and wailing, yet clear the notes, rising and falling, flooding the night,
Sadly sinking and fainting, as warning and warning, and yet again bursting with joy,
Covering the earth, and filling the spread of the heaven,
As that powerful psalm in the night I heard from recesses,)
Passing, I leave thee, lilac with heart-shaped leaves;
I leave thee there in the door-yard, blooming, returning with spring,
I cease from my song for thee;
From my gaze on thee in the west, fronting the west, communing with thee,
O comrade lustrous, with silver face in the night.


Yet each I keep, and all, retrievements out of the night;
The song, the wondrous chant of the gray-brown bird,
And the tallying chant, the echo arous’d in my soul,
With the lustrous and drooping star, with the countenance full of woe,
With the lilac tall, and its blossoms of mastering odor;
With the holders holding my hand, nearing the call of the bird,
Comrades mine, and I in the midst, and their memory ever I keep—for the dead I loved so well;
For the sweetest, wisest soul of all my days and lands...and this for his dear sake;
Lilac and star and bird, twined with the chant of my soul,
There in the fragrant pines, and the cedars dusk and dim.

2023.03.30 03:51 Cody_97K I've wanted a Challenger (Scat Pack or even better, Hellcat) since I was a kid in HS a decade ago. Now this year is the Last Call. Want to find a way to make this work. Advice?

I'm 25 and I'm making 90k. I've wanted a Challenger forever. When I was 20, for a week I rented a T from Hertz somehow, did a big road trip out west, it was a blast and I've been even more obsessed ever since.
In a sane world I'd wait a couple years and buy one once I have more money and interest rates are lower. I remember 2 years ago I made dogshit money, yet the Scat Pack was only $400 a month to lease and I semi-seriously considered it. But this year is the Last Call and never again will I have the chance to buy one new.
Realistically I'm only interested in either a Scat Pack or a Hellcat. Even the T feels like a compromise. I see that I can save a bit by buying the 22 instead of the 23.
Current vehicle: 2012 F150 Lariat SuperCrew 4x4, 6.5' bed with camper shell, 153k miles, giant 3 foot dent on the side (quoted 3000+ to fix), speedometer reads 40mph too high, oil pressure sensor is fucked and sometimes flashes spurious low pressure warnings. Sluggish acceleration on uphills, I think the transmission fluid is cooked after having to accelerate real hard back and forth to get unstuck from deep must last year, haven't had it looked at yet. KBB claims 10k dealer value for "fair" condition. I suspect I'd get more like 8k for it, if that.
Finances: 90k base pay pre-tax. After taxes, rent, and other expenses 2800 a month left over, of which I put 800 a month in savings. I've only been at this job 3 months. Got a few grand in savings. Like I said, if not for this being the Last Call I'd wait a couple years for sure. According to the Dodge website, if I trade in my truck for 8k and put another 2k down, for a Scat Park it's $750/month to finance and $550/month to lease. For a Hellcat, 1200 a month to finance or 1000 a month to lease... probably unattainable even though my heart really wants it. And that's if they're selling at sticker price, I wouldn't be surprised if it's higher due to this being the last year.
Insurance: I have one speeding ticket on my record (from when I lived in CA... it doesn't seem to show up on my record in VA for some reason, which is cool). I pay $140 a month for insurance on my truck. No idea what typical insurance rates on these bad boys are.
Parking situation: I live in an apartment. Options are street parking and a small outdoor gravel lot. I live in a very nice neighborhood, but Arlington VA where I live is across the river from DC and I gotta wonder about theft. Are there effective countermeasures? Also wondering about deterioration from outdoor parking in a mid-atlantic climate.
I feel like if I miss this chance I'm never going to forgive myself for it for the rest of my life. On the other hand this feels like a financial disaster waiting to happen, plus the worries of theft and deterioration from outside parking. My heart is screaming yes, my brain is screaming no. Of course I could always split the baby and get a used scat pack or a new T but that feels wrong somehow... idk. Am I insane? What would y'all do in my situation?

To preface; I know it's winter and we can't do this in the winter time. But, it's been about 3 years and only progressively getting worse over time. Water based paint does not last.
It would be nice to see our tax dollars spent on some quality road paint. For the last 3 years I feel like only north Albert or New developments have been touched.
Some particular streets to note
-Most of Dewdney is missing lane markings
-Turning lanes at Ring Road/Victoria in all directions
-South Albert
-essentially all of west end of the city to the bypass.
There's a lot more, but I am not sure how to get this addressed other than putting in service requests to the city which only really work for pot holes.

2023.03.30 01:19 Legionarivs_Romanvs Giuseppe Solaro, "we are the real rebels!"

Giuseppe Solaro,

Giuseppe Solaro, a life for socialism and Italy

Giuseppe Solaro, Italian born in 1914, was a left-wing socialist who grew up under the fascist regime and graduated in economics. In 1937 he volunteered with the Italian Expeditionary Force to fight in the Spanish Civil War. Upon Italy's entry into the war in WW2 (1940) he was drafted and even during the war he continued to write newspaper articles on topics such as economics, politics and geopolitics. With the Italian surrender of 8 September 1943 and the outbreak of the civil war, he joined the Italian Social Republic (RSI) because he saw in fascism the only right and realistic way to create a socialist society.
During the Fascist-Republican period Giuseppe was put in charge of the Fascist Republican Party in Turin, a very important political role. He was among the greatest supporters of the socialization economic project implemented in the RSI. Loyal to his socialist ideal, during a strike by FIAT workers he took their side forcing the company to increase their wages (in wartime!).
WW2 in Italy from 1943 became a civil war between fascists in the north and anti-fascists in the south. The anti-fascist partisans were people who, supported by the Allies, led a guerrilla warfare in the territories controlled by the RSI. Ignoring the laws of war they didn't wear any uniform and after their attacks they often hid among the civilian population in the inhabited centers of cities and villages, Germans and fascists reacted to this by organizing reprisals and sometimes causing civilian victims in their actions. Aware of this, Giuseppe as a political leader often strongly opposed the reprisals wanted by the military authorities as a response to partisan attacks, sometimes successfully managing to prevent them.
In the last days of the war in April 1945, with the final Allied advance, the RSI was in collapse. On 23 April he was promoted to regional inspector of the Black Brigades (an anti-guerrilla military corp). On the 25th the Allied forces are at the gates of the city, the Germans and some republican units prepare to withdraw; today April 25 is celebrated in Italy as "liberation day from fascism". On April 26, Giuseppe went to a saving bank ("Cassa di Risparmio") in Turin to withdraw the money necessary to pay all the back wages of his still unpaid soldiers, and at the refusal of the bank manager he decided to break down the bank gate with an armored vehicle and withdraw them anyway. On the 27th he dismantled the Black Brigades and handed over to the soldiers the money from the back wages taken the day before; the same day Mussolini is captured by the partisans in Lombardy. Many Turin fascists refused to join the column of retreating German-Italian forces and organized resistance to the bitter end in the city. Giuseppe, despite his brother Ferdinando begging him to leave the city, decided to stay in Turin.
On the 28th the city fell completely into the hands of the Allies, Giuseppe was arrested; it was the same day that Mussolini was shot. On the 29th after a farce and summary trial he was sentenced to death. He was hanged, but the branch of the tree he was hanging from snapped, and while he was semi-conscious and nearly dead, he was picked up and hanged again. That day, before the sentence was carried out he wrote a letter to his wife:
"Dear Tina, before dying I express all my love and devotion to you. I have been honest all my life and honestly I die for an idea. May it help Italy on the road to Redemption. Remember me and love me, as I have always loved Italy. Dear Tina, long live free Italy, viva il Duce!"

"We are the real rebels"

On October 12, 1944, a newspaper published an article of his for which he is still famous today among Italian neofascists. To understand it you need to know that at the time the Germans and fascists spoke of the partisans as "rebels", and that In the article by "plutocrats" he refers to the Anglo-Americans who armed and supported them. I will quote only the most famous part:
"We are the real rebels! It is easy for others to be called rebels, when the successes of the Allies encourage them, in the phase in which the war initiative is on their side. It is pleasant to be called a rebel when you are surrounded by the kindness of so many cowardly people who intend to bet on 'the winning horse'; when you have encouragement and help from plutocrats who bet on the deal deemed safer\1]) [...]".
"NO, these opportunists of contingent events are not rebels [...]. We are the real rebels. Rebels against an old world of egoists, of privileged, of conservatives, of oppressive capitalists, of failed systems, of outdated ideologies, deceitful doctrines of the false and the liars. In short, rebels against the world of injustice".
"Rebels in the name of a holy cause, of a just and orderly society, of respect for work, of national dignity, of love for the country, for the family nucleus, for the honorable and noble things undertaken in life. Rebels of faith. Rebels who do not measure the obstacles, which do not dwell on the prospects. It is faith that instills in our hearts the certainty of victory, lit like a burning torch, even in the darkness of misfortune".

2023.03.29 23:48 Keraiza Guide to driving the Master’s Tournament event in Augusta, GA (April 6-9, 2023)

Pretty soon drivers throughout Georgia and South Carolina should be getting quests for the Master’s Tournament. Some of y’all will be asking about whether it is worth it, and some of y’all will be asking about strategies for working the tournament, so I’ll try to cover both in this post. For reference, I have been an Uber driver in Augusta since 2017. I did two Master’s Tournaments as an X driver pre-pandemic and one Master’s Tournament as an XL driver last year (the two tournaments during the pandemic were closed to the public and were for members only). Sorry to the Uber Black drivers who are looking at this post, I don’t really have much experience to share with you about your platform, but hopefully some of this guide will still be helpful. I don’t do Eats, but they should do well here, too.
Market basics:
Augusta is a rate-card market. It pays UberX $0.60/min and $0.09/mile and pays UberXL $1.45/min and $0.22/mile. Those who are coming from an upfront market (and new drivers who decide to start during The Master’s) will be accepting trips blind (unless Uber goes upfront within the next week). You have to have a SC vehicle inspection to pick up rides in North Augusta, SC, so unless you are a SC driver, or you come from a border town and did the SC vehicle inspection, you might want to avoid that side of town (near downtown, Augusta). Alternatively, if you do have a SC vehicle inspection done, this is a great location to get trips that other drivers (including most taxi drivers) cannot get. Outside of the tournament, the Augusta market only has UberX and UberXL. The platforms that I remember from last year during tournament week included UberX, UberX Diamond, Uber Comfort, UberXL, Uber Black, and Uber SUV. I know Lyft (which normally only does Lyft and LyftXL) also has Lyft Lux, but I’m not sure of their other platforms.
Tournament basics:
The rideshare waiting lot for the Augusta Nationals (the name of the golf course which hosts the Master’s Tournament) is on Washington Rd about a mile East from Exit 199 of I-20. Most tickets can only be used twice for entry into the tournament. The entrance to the rideshare lot is just after the taxi lot entrance which is just after the Olive Garden restaurant if you are coming from I-20. The tournament starts at 8 am and ends when all the players are done on the course, typically around 5pm-ish. Those who attend to watch the tournament but are not members are called patrons. A lot of patrons will only come to see a particular golfer (Tiger Woods draws a lot of attention) and will leave when their golfer leaves (especially during practice rounds). Some patrons will sit at a single hole and will leave when all the players that they want to see for the day have come across that hole.
The women’s amateur tournament already began on Wed March 29, 2023, at Champion’s Retreat. The women’s tournament players get a practice day on Fri March 31 and will compete on Sat April 1 at the Augusta Nationals. Mon, Tues, and Wed April 3-5 will be the practice rounds. A lot of your middle-class fans will be here on one of these days as they will have a hard time getting tickets to the actual tournament; most of these patrons will only be here for a single day. Thu-Sun April 6-9 is the actual tournament. Most of your better-off patrons (and very lucky patrons) will be here during the actual tournament. They will often be here all four days. April 6-9 will be, by far, the busiest times of the tournament.
A lot of businesses arrange for tickets. Outside of C-suite employees, most of these tickets will be given out to customers and awarded to employees for a half-day visit (as they can be used twice) to get the most bang for the buck. This is good for UberX & UberXL drivers as a lot of these patrons who are there for half-day help fill up some of the time between the start time rush and the end of the day rush and are more likely to use Uber (or taxis) to get around.
Try to get along with the law enforcement and the workers at and around the Augusta Nationals. The Augusta Nationals has a reputation for banning and trespassing those who don’t follow their fairly stringent rules, although most of the workers there just work for the week. The Augusta Nationals have stripped members of their membership for things we might feel are small infractions; they certainly don’t care about trespassing a random Uber driver.
Augusta has two airports:
Last year, the quests were for $15/trip originating from the rideshare parking lot at the Augusta Nationals between 3pm and 7pm. This sounds great, but I only got a total of 7 trips during that quest time for the entire four days of the quest (and one of those trips was a “high priority” return after a very short trip). The big issues are that the tournament might end before 3pm for bad weather or might go beyond 7pm (usually because of weather delays). Also, every driver is trying to cram into the rideshare lot to get in the queue for that quest. Even if the tournament gets out during the quest hours, you will be fighting traffic out of and back into the rideshare lot. The lot seems to be designed for about 20 vehicles, but there were at least 60 vehicles crammed in most of the time last year. Drivers can also park at the Publix parking lot near the Augusta Nationals to get in the queue, but then you must crawl through traffic to get to the pickup. As a strategy, it might be worth it to jump into the Publix lot, though, to get your position in the queue to get one more quest for the night. The quest is what brings drivers to Augusta, but it isn’t really where drivers make their money….
Stories abound in and around Augusta about $100 tips that patrons give out during their visit to the Master’s Tournament. In the three years that I drove for the tournament, I only got some of these tips one year (last year) and none the other two years, but I received four of them last year for the following reasons: (1) being a military veteran, (2) returning binoculars that were left in my vehicle, (3) going through a Chick-Fil-A drive thru, and (4) making a half-dozen stops for one rider for cigars and alcohol and ice and other items. The first two tips were easy money; the second two tips cost a lot of time during high surges (although I would have still had a hard time doing better than the $100 during that time). If you are a young lady that is easy on the eyes (not sure of a better way to put it), you will have a much easier time getting the $100 tips, but you’ll likely also face some very stereotypical frat-guy behavior from the mostly older male crowd. Most people giving out these types of tips are not taking UberX or UberXL, though.
As an upfront market, real surges are hidden, but you’ll still be able to see sticky surges. The best time for surges (aka, the times when riders exceed drivers) are in the early hours of the morning, the closing hours of the tournament, and during late night. The event starts at 8am (watch out for weather delays), but the rides easily start before 5am. There are a lot of moving parts to get the tournament started, and a lot of the rides that you’ll give as an UberX or UberXL are to those who support the tournament rather than the patrons. Parking lot attendants, traffic control, hospitality, camera crews, etc., are all heading to work. Uber shines at this time as the other modes of transportation have a hard time capturing this traffic unless prescheduled. A lot of patrons will start coming in soon after the workers to try to get the “ultimate” spot, and patrons will keep coming in for several hours. At the end of the tournament, there is no magical place to be except as close to the Augusta Nationals as possible. Patrons, workers, etc. are all streaming out of the same location.
Hot Spots:
  1. Don’t bother around Washington Rd as patrons will be primarily walking (not worth fighting the traffic for such low fares to the tournament either, imho, unless you are very, very close already).
  2. West Lake is a huge location for pickups. It is a gated community, but if you tell the guards you are picking up at 3556 W Lake Dr (the Club House), they should let you right through the gate. You can even type this address in your app to get directions to it (without using your precious destination filters) and have your app look like you are actually going to there for a pickup.
  3. There are several subdivisions near Washington Rd and William Few Pkwy in Evans, GA, that are commonly underserved.
  4. Whole blocks within River Island Pkwy are rented out by Mercedes Benz and other corporations and is a good source of rides.
  5. River North Dr in North Augusta, SC, is a great source of rides for patrons for those drivers who have submitted a completed a SC vehicle inspection to Uber.
  6. Otherwise, workers and patrons will be staying in housing all over the city.
Roads to Avoid:
Law Enforcement:
The LE that you come across in Augusta are overworked outside of the tournament and will have had some really long hours by the time the tournament even starts. If you do something stupid enough to warrant the LE to actually bother going after you, expect at least a ticket. Be polite to LE because their fuses are already short. If you screw up, the best thing to do is to just apologize and accept the chew out if they are yelling at you from the road. Arguing will likely get you swarmed by police in Augusta.
Some notable things to point out:
Traveling from Other Markets:
One of the mistakes many drivers make is not recouping the costs of traveling from/to their market and missing the surges that result from other drivers leaving their market. I assume that a driver is not going to stay overnight in Augusta as the hotel costs are prohibitive. I also don’t recommend sleeping in your car because the local LE already have short fuses with the extra hours and the extra work brought on from patrons during the tournament (patrons routinely include heads of states and billionaires). If you are over 2 ½ hours away and don’t have a place to crash in Augusta, I wouldn’t bother.
Here is what I would do if I were in these other markets (but your reasoning or circumstances might be different):

2023.03.29 23:41 throwaway79799 Major red flags when applying for a studio flat found on Rightmove

After a long search (a few times being ghosted or beaten to the punch) I found a studio flat on Rightmove that was within my budget.
The viewing went great, I said that I am ready to proceed with the application and pay the holding deposit and was given a business card and so was told to send an email to receive an application form and further instructions.
The first red flag was that the address on the card wasn't a true address - just the city (no building or street name or postcode). The phone number is also a mobile number and not landline and the email address is a gmail address and not a company address…
I sent that email and received a boilerplate HomeLet referencing application form alongside with a second major red flag - the holding deposit equal to a month's rent, more than the legal maximum of one week’s rent.
Now, due to my a bit desperate circumstances (more below) I did proceed with the application.
More red flags came up after checking though:
-Googling the company name only returned a bunch of Rightmove-type websites and a single gov.uk website for a company registered in a different city -Googling his name and surname returned nothing relevant -The address given on the referencing form is a PO box
On the other hand, he hasn’t ghosted me and he has left lots of footprints if that is a deposit related scam - the flat was most certainly real and the bank account is with NatWest so it’s unlikely that he could just disappear.
But it all looks very sketchy and anonymous and the holding deposit amount was illegal.
I would’ve been more careful, but I have to move out from uni halls into somewhere with a more secure parking, as my motorbike which is the only way for me to commute to work got stolen from a council car park next to the halls which is the only place where I can park while living here. I am on a leave of absence from the university, so I can move out of the halls early, but only on specific dates and I basically ran out of time to search for other options. If I can’t move I basically can’t get a new bike and that means losing my job.
How bad does it look (maybe I am just overreacting and it’s just a private landlord who values his privacy and just doesn’t know about the holding deposit limit) and what should I look out for now?
Thanks a lot!

2023.03.29 23:37 Few-Distance156 St. David’s Road reconstruction begins between St. Catharines and Thorold

St. David’s Road reconstruction begins between St. Catharines and Thorold
A major road work project has started on St. David’s Road between St. Catharines and Thorold. The project involves the reconstruction of St. David’s Road (Regional Road 71) between Collier Road and Foley Crescent.
The project is part of a joint effort between the Niagara Region and the cities of St. Catharines and Thorold to urbanize the cross-section of the road, including the installation of curbs and gutters, new sidewalk on the north side, multi-use trail on the south side, upgraded local and regional water mains, new storm sewers and street lighting, and construction of a new road base, curbs, and asphalt.
The project is expected to improve traffic operations, safety, and active transportation along the corridor, which is a major east-west roadway connecting Highway 406 to Merrittville Highway.
The project will be completed in two phases. Phase one began on March 28 and will run until autumn 2023. Phase one will require a full road closure of St. David’s Road between Collier Road and Foley Crescent for the duration of the construction. Detour routes will be posted and access to local businesses and properties will be maintained as much as possible.
Phase two is expected to begin in 2024 or 2025 and will involve the reconstruction of St. David’s Road between Highway 406 ramp and Burleigh Hill Drive / Collier Road.
The project is being carried out by O’Hara Trucking & Excavating Inc. on behalf of the Niagara Region and the cities of St. Catharines and Thorold.
The public can find more information about the project on the Niagara Region website and can contact the project team with any questions or concerns.

2023.03.29 23:30 Few-Distance156 West Niagara high school set to open in September 2023

West Niagara high school set to open in September 2023
Students in Grimsby, Lincoln, and West Lincoln will soon have a new high school to attend. The West Niagara Secondary School, which has been under construction since 2021, is expected to open in September 2023.
The new school is located on 20 acres of land on Durham Road, fronting on to King Street, on the border of Grimsby and Beamsville. The school will accommodate up to 1,500 students from grades 9 to 12 and will offer a range of programs and services, including Specialist High Skills Majors, French Immersion, and International Baccalaureate.
The school will also feature state-of-the-art facilities, such as a triple gymnasium, a fitness centre, a library learning commons, a cafeteria with a stage, a music room, an art room, a drama room, a greenhouse, and a technology wing.
The school is part of the District School Board of Niagara’s (DSBN) plan to consolidate three existing high schools in West Niagara: Beamsville District Secondary School, Grimsby Secondary School, and South Lincoln High School. The plan was approved by the DSBN board of trustees in 2017 after a public consultation process.
The DSBN says that the new school will provide more opportunities for students to learn and grow in a modern and innovative environment. The school will also foster a sense of community and belonging among students and staff from different backgrounds and areas.
The DSBN invites the public to attend its open house events to learn more about the new school and its programs. The open house events will take place on November 28 at the Grimsby Campus, November 29 at the Beamsville Campus, and December 1 at the Smithville Public School.
More information about the new school can be found on the DSBN website and the West Niagara Secondary School website.
