2020.10.26 21:45 NotABotaboutIt Hurricane Zeta

Zeta is currently strengthening as a Category 2 Hurricane before it makes landfall in the US.

A note on the name: When we go past 21 named hurricanes in a season, we switch to the Greek alphabet. It is 21 because in the English alphabet name list we do not use Q, U, X, Y and Z. This has only happened once before, in 2005. Here's the Greek alphabet, for reference: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, Zeta, Eta, Theta, Iota, Kappa, Lambda, Mu, Nu, Xi, Omicron Persei 8 , Pi, Rho, Sigma, Tau, Upsilon, Phi, Chi, Psi, Omega. You can learn more about hurricane names here.
 
 
Please look to local news, local weather, and local and state emergency management agencies to find out more about how you may be affected, if you need to evacuate, and steps on getting prepared. Please everyone stay safe.

2020.10.24 16:10 AnastasiaBeavrhausn Monique Daniels - Runaway Or Something Sinister?

I want to thank u/sideeyedi for posting a comment about Monique on this thread and for answering my questions. I never heard of Monique before reading this comment.-
This is Monique’s story.
Monique Daniels:
Monique Daniels was born June 16, 1976, in Biloxi, Mississippi, to Candyce and her biological father Burton Kenneth Landman. Monique was the oldest of four children from the marriage.
Monique was physically and sexually abused by her biological father. He was in and out of prison. He went to prison for sexual assault offenses against his second family. He was never charged with the crimes against his first family.
Candyce got remarried to Charles “Chuck” Daniels This marriage added two more children for a total of six children in the Daniels home in Moore, Oklahoma. Moore sits between Oklahoma City and Norman, Oklahoma.
Candyce and Chuck were both in the Air Force at Tinker Air Force Base. They ran their home like drill sergeants, everything was spotless and in its place.
According to Angelique the couple fought often and were physically and mentally abusive to one another and their children.
Monique has been described as pretty, kind, popular, with a generous spirit, she took care of others before herself, and very smart. Monique wanted to be a doctor. She was looking forward to her 16th birthday so that she could drive. Monique wanted independence from her controlling parents.
Like scores of teenagers, Monique rebelled against the strict rules. As you can imagine, this was a very tense household.
When Monique ran away for the first time, her parents immediately started looking for her, calling all of her friends and drove around town looking for her. Monique’s best friend talked her into going back home.
Things at home got worse.
Shortly before her disappearance, Candyce and Chuck found out that Monique was pregnant. Candyce and Chuck forced Monique to get an abortion.
Tensions rose.
Disappearance:
On June 2, 1992, two weeks shy of Monique’s 16th birthday, Monique and Chuck were arguing. That’s an understatement, they were in a huge fight according to Andrew.
Candyce, Angelique, Bryan were on a week-long choir road trip for their church. Angelique remembers Candyce being unusually quiet on this trip.
Back at home, allegedly, Chuck told Andrew and Charles Jr, that he was taking them on impromptu fishing trip. He told the boys to say goodbye to Monique, but they could only do so through her slightly cracked bedroom door. They left for the fishing trip in the pouring rain without fishing poles. They drove for about two hours when Chuck pulled into a McDonald’s. They got something to eat and headed home.
When they got home, Chuck pulled into the garage, he had the boys wait in the car. He came out to get them an hour or so later. Andrew ran to the bathroom, when he finished, his father came in and rushed him out. He told the boys to go into his room and Chuck locked the door. He told the boys he was going to look for Monique. He came back two days later.
Angelique said that when she got home from the choir trip with her mother and brother, she found their normally immaculate house in disarray. There were beer bottles everywhere, someone had been smoking and putting cigarettes out on the mantle. There was an empty pregnancy test on the bathroom counter.
The kids were told Monique ran away again.
Angelique noticed it was different from the last time Monique ran away. Her parents weren’t looking for Monique this time. Then all pictures of Monique with family were removed. They had new family pictures taken and hung that were missing Monique. Her room and clothes were packed in boxes. It didn’t take long before they were forbidden to talk about her.
Chuck remarked how “tranquil” it was without Monique.
Approximately six months later, Aunt Leslie, Candyce’s sister, contacted Candyce because she needed the police report number to have Monique put on the National Center For Missing And Exploited Children (NCMEC) site.
Within days after Aunt Leslie’s call for the police report number, Monique called to let her sister, Angelique, know she was doing fine. Candyce immediately called all of her family to give them the good news.
A few days later, a letter from Monique arrived. Postmarked Dallas, Texas, the letter said she was married and had a baby named Chelsea, she was doing well and living in Alaska but traveled for his job. A second letter arrived in September 1993.
Leslie wasn’t satisfied and she was suspicious about the timing of the letters and the call. She asked for the letters so she could have a law enforcement handwriting expert look at them. She didn’t believe they were from Monique, she thought that Candyce wrote them.
Coincidentally, the night before Candyce was supposed to turn them over for investigation, there was a break-in at the Daniels’s home and the thief took small boom boxes, CD’s, and the letters.
Life went on in the Daniels home. So did the abuse.
It was as if Monique never existed.
Angelique Daniels:
Angelique knew something was very wrong. In January 1994, she ran away to her Aunt Leslie, her mother Candyce’s sister, in Michigan. Angelique said that she cried the whole bus trip there. Angelique had a secret to tell her Aunt.
Angelique confessed to Leslie, that she was the one who wrote the letters and faked the phone call. Angelique said that Chuck came to her and said that her mother was suicidal and the letters and calls would cheer her up. Chuck drove Angelique to Dallas, 200 miles from Moore, to mail the letters. He told her because she wrote the letters and that was illegal, she could go to jail if anyone found out.
”He took me to the grocery store and picked out stationery to write the letter on. He told me what to write. I felt very threatened. I felt very afraid... It has brought so much sadness to me daily and guilt for participating in the cover-up, even though I was a kid and I didn't know.”
Her parents immediately filed a missing person report. Curiously, they also filed a report on Monique who had been missing 18 months already.
While Candyce and Chuck tried to extradite Angelique to Moore, OK, Angelique went to Child Protective Services to report the abuse. After hearing Angelique’s story, the judge refused to extradite her. Her parents pleaded “no contest” to the child abuse charges.
Angelique and her Aunt Leslie went on tv to talk about Monique’s disappearance.
They also went to law enforcement.
Law enforcement had a big problem though. Not only did Chuck and Candyce give conflicting testimony, but they were also starting their investigation almost 2 years late, they had no evidence, and had two parents who refused to take lie detector tests. The officer explained that without a body, this is a missing person case.
A neighbor reported that they saw Monique on June 2, 1992, packing her clothes into a blue Chevrolet pickup. They described the driver as an unknown white male.
Andrew called Angelique to tell her that he wanted to come to stay with her, he too wanted to run away. But shortly after the investigation into Monique’s disappearance started, the family moved to Germany for ten years. Andrew went with them.
Angelique got married and remained in Michigan.
On May 20, 2013 a EF5 hit Moore, Oklahoma. Angelique watched the news and saw places she knew growing up completely leveled. There were 24 fatalities.
Andrew called Angelique crying, perhaps overcome because of the destruction in Moore by the tornado or guilt. He called to say that the day Monique went missing when his father had him and his brother say goodbye through a slightly cracked bedroom door, she wasn’t moving. When she asked who, he said ”I was there, she wasn’t talking.”
Monique had been in a sitting position on her bedroom floor, with her legs crossed in front of her. According to Andrew, she wasn’t moving or talking. One source said Charles Jr. remembered hugging her goodbye and she spoke to him.
Angelique convinced Andrew to go to the police. Based on the report and local rumors that Monique was buried there, the police dug up the backyard at their former home in Moore. They found nothing.
Andrew recounted how after his father let him and Charlie Jr., out of the car after about an hour, he ran to the bathroom. He had an eerie feeling that he wasn’t alone. As he went to pull back the closed shower curtain, Chuck rushed in and ushered both boys into his bedroom and locked the door.
In the middle of the night, Chuck took his other son for a ride in the truck. He recalls seeing an oil barrel in the back. He stated that he didn’t know what was inside.
When confronted with the allegations, Candyce and Chuck denied everything. They say that Angelique and Andrew are unstable and they have substance abuse issues. Both deny their parent's claim.
We have two siblings who claim their stepfather killed their sister and two parents who refuse to discuss it.
A Crime Watch Daily reporter, Ana Garcia, caught up with Candyce to ask what she thought happened to Monique. She said in part:
”Whatever happened it’s in God’s hands.”
On Angelique she said:
”Angelique is a really messed up young lady.”
”Angelique is not a reliable source.”
Then the reporter saw Chuck. His response to what happened to Monique sounds familiar, he said:
”It’s in God’s hands. I don’t know.”
I am going end with a quote from Angelique:
“I have to let people know, there was a Monique Daniels.”
Conclusion:
The disappearance of Monique Daniels leaves us with a lot of questions. Law enforcement doesn’t even know if she’s alive. This is still a missing person case.
It’s worth noting in the Websleuths link below, Angelique commented that her two brothers, 9 and 11, said they saw Monique’s body. They later recanted. One brother moved back in with their parents.
I wasn’t able to find anything on the older kid's biological father. I can’t say for sure when or if Chuck adopted them, but they all used the last name, Daniels.
Candyce is a Middle School teacher in Florida.
I was unable to find anything on Chuck other than he resides at the same residence as Candyce.
Edit: Chuck is deceased. Please read the comments from Angelique below. Candyce has the answers we need to bring Monique home.
If you don’t follow any of the other links, please just watch the Crime Watch Daily episode, or read this True Crime Daily article. You will see Angelique, Andrew, Chuck, and Candyce. You can decide for yourself who is telling the truth.
Monique did exist. Monique matters. Monique deserves justice.
Questions:
What do you think happened to Monique?
What was in the barrel?
What do you think about the neighbor’s account of Monique packing a truck and leaving that day? After approximately 18 months had passed, was the account reliable?

First I want to say thank you for speaking about Monique. I miss her everyday. She was electric, fun, and beautiful. I would like to add some things if I could. Burton Kenneth Landman is our biological father. He sexually abused us, so did our mother. She directed and instructed the abuse. Our father did not pay for what he did to us. He is in prison in South Dakota for what he did to his second family. When I ranaway from home, it wasn't because I was tired of the abuse. I would have stayed and took it. I knew something was very wrong the moment we returned. I may have even known on the church trip. I was 13. Up until this trip my mother had no involvement with my life. Not school, not sports, not anything. I was invisible to her. All of the sudden she went on this trip. She was totally weird the entire time. Not one part of it felt natural. When we returned from the trip and Monique was gone, I was the oldest. Monique always protected us. I had to look out for my 4 younger brothers. To this day, I am still doing that. I ranaway because I needed help for my sister, my brothers and myself. I had no faith in the police. I saw as Officer O'Blien assisted my parents in recording a phone call between my aunt Leslie and myself to form a civil lawsuit against my aunt. He spoke about it with my parents. They put me on the phone with her in his office and he recorded it. I wanted so bad to tell him everything that was happening but my parents were right there behind me. The cop believed them and thought my aunt was trying to ruin my parents. I couldn't process it. I didn't know what to do. So I waited. As Chuck came to me and asked me to write letters, I didn't want to. I was afraid of what my mom would do if my sister returned and I had written these letters. I told him that. He said "Monique isn't coming back". I wanted to believe he meant she wouldn't be allowed back. Really, I wanted to believe anything other than what my gut was telling me. He forced me to write them. He threatened me and tricked me. In January of 1994 I was 15. Monique was not coming back. My parents were beyond strange. That time was like living in a different dimension. I knew the only person on this earth who would help me, and protect me, was my aunt. So I called her. I was crying so hard I couldn't speak. She told me to call her from school in the morning. So I did. I took a greyhound out of OKC and rode for 3 days. I cried the entire way. I was devastated that I had to leave my brothers there. When I arrived in MI I went directly to the police station and made a statement of what all happened. The next day I went to CPS and filed a complaint against my parents for abuse and neglect. I was so scared and in shock still. I told them what words I could get out. I know if I had laid it all out my parents would have been arrested. I was too scared. The following day I called my maternal grandfather and he recorded our conversation. He then drove from Minnesota, along with other family members to OK. They went to our church and met with the pastor, Brother Bobby Boyles. Brother Bobby called my mother and asked her to come to the church. Alone. She did. When she arrived, her father and sisters were there. They played the tape for her that my grandfather recorded. My mother stood up, saidw"Angie is a liar!" She fled the room to the front off the church where she called Chuck. She said "get out of there, they are on to you!" My Aunt Shelli heard all of this and told us. The family went with my mother to our home. Their intentions were to save Candyce and the boys. They were supposed to take them out of there. When they got to our house, Chuck was gone. My mom came out of the room and said he took his guns. My Aunt Shelli called us and told us Chuck fled and had guns. I spent the next week sleeping at strangers homes in hiding. I was so afraid, I slept under the bed. I found out the next stforafter the church meeting for the family was ordering Chinese. They ate, loaded up and returned to Minnesota. They did not call the police. They did nothing. Chuck was gone for 3 days. He said he made it to Chicago and was planning on shooting himself. He said while sitting in his truck, Jesus appeared and told him not to end his life. So he turned around and went home. I filed charges for child abuse and neglect out of Ionia County Mi. My parents plead no contest. They transfered to Germany shortly after. It wouldn't have mattered if they stayed. The case was cold. I believe he destroyed anything that was left of her in those 3 days he was missing. Keep in mind, he was USAF. He was literally AWOL. The USAF was aware a 15 year old was missing- they did nothing. I have pursued justice for Monique as well as some sort of help for my brothers that need it. I have turned up empty handed time and time again. I once had full trust in the Moore Police Department-not anymore. About the neighbor... he reported that he was mowing his lawn and saw Monique load her things into a pickup. Looking back to June 2 1992 weather records, it was raining that day. My brothers recall the rain. No one mows their lawn in the rain. He was either paid or involved. or just covering for a couple he saw as honorable because of their service. I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that Chuck murdered Monique. My brother who lives in their home now told me in specific detail of her death. What Chuck said, what Monique said and how Chuck ended her. He had apologized for not "siding" with Monique several times as recently as 4 months ago. When I ask him why, He says "because that's my dad". I believe with every fiber of my being that my mother orchestrated the murder of Monique. Candyce is not a battered wife or a victim. She is a pedophile, and a murderer. Unfortunately, she is also a school teacher.
Chuck was diagnosed with colon cancer 10/2018. He died at home 1/2019. Charles IV was present as was my mother. There is no obituary and a small BBQ service was held at their home. I was not invited or interested in attending.
I have been called a liar by my family so many times, but the truth is plain. A child went missing. She was not reported missing for almost 2 years. When I ran away this was now a red flag- so they transferred and left. They have stood by their story that Monique was a bad kid and I was a liar. This has been traumatic and draining. I have still stood for what was right. What my parents did must be made right. I have come to terms that I will never be able to lay my sweet sister to rest in a respectful way that she deserves. I am at peace that my family is garbage. I am at peace with being the outcast- because at least I told the truth.

2020.10.23 21:58 WizardMama LIVE Summary of Gov. JBE address to the media about the just-concluded Legislative Session and COVID.

LINKS TO WATCH

Summary

NOTE: The summary of the special announcement is transcribed LIVE. The summary may contain spelling and grammatical errors which until it is able to be corrected once the conference concludes.
Gov. John Bel Edwards - Wanted to go over a few things from the session. Obviously, the #lalege just concluded the 2nd special session of 2020. - Haven't received many of the bills yet and thus haven't had an opportunity to look at them to decide if vests are necessary. - GOP Legislatures have enough signatures to end the COVID-19 public health emergency. * They act as if the public health emergency is over even though COVID-19 is very much present in Louisiana. * Haven't seen the petition or how many signatures are there. Does not know what the specific petition says. * Understands the intentions are reckless, irresponsible, and unconscionable. * The petition must have contained signatures from people who have said publicly the petition is a bad idea and unconstitutional. * JBE stands up here sometimes multiple times a week to discuss COVID-19. Even yesterday had a press conference and discussed the third wave happening across America. * More than 70,000 cases have been reported which is the most in 3 months. More hospitalizations are reported across America and it is the highest amounts we have seen since August. * Mississippi has begun to reinstate its mask mandate due to a steep rise in cases. * It is true, that Louisiana has fared better than our neighbors in terms of new cases and case positivity, but we know that can quickly change. It only takes a few days of behaviors not aligned with the mitigations measures for cases to increase and for us to be set back months in the progress we made. * If we stop doing what has been proven to work we know we will be in a worse place. - Goes through some slides... 1. Overall situation in Louisiana * 696 new cases were reported today of off 20,078 tests. * Hospitalizations are up by 22 and Ventilations are up by 2. * Deaths are up by 21 for a total of 5,614. 2. Since the public health emergency first started you can see the first and second surge of the cases by collection date on the LDH Dashboard. * Can see how our cases came down in the summer due to the mitigation measures and mask mandate. Closed bars to on-premises consumption * As a result you see the cases and hospitalizations go down. 3. See where we are in Phase 3 and as people adhere to the mitigation measures and mask mandate our numbers have stabilized. We have kept our numbers down with the mitigation measures despite the hurricanes, schools opening, opening businesses further without cases increase. We absolutely know these mitigation measures work. - The most recent report from the Coronavirus White House Task Force for Louisiana shows we are #36 in the country in new cases per 100,000 in population over the past week. * Shows our progress despite there being a nationwide surge and our neighbors experiencing increases. * We were #34 in the country for test positivity last week. * There was a time where we had the steepest incline in the world. * Our neighbors do not have as good of numbers as we are. - JBE will look at the petition. - Currently, the public health emergency proclamation remains in effect. All mitigation measures are critically important. Restrictions that are in that particular proclamation with respect to occupancy and the mask mandate remain in full effect. In short the Phase 3 order remains in effect - JBE takes responsibility for the people of Louisiana very seriously. He has at all times relied upon accurate data that has been fully transparent to anyone who wanted to look at it as well as the White House Task Force reports. * All agree that the mitigation measures are working in Louisiana. - Just last month Dr.Birx came to Louisiana at LSU and said they (the White House Task Force) actually learned a lot from Louisiana, the implementation of the mitigation measures, and their effectiveness, especially as it pertains to the mask mandate. That was further demonstrated to her when she found out that LSU's tests of their wastewater showed a great decline in the virus 2 weeks after the mask mandate went into place. She had not seen that type of study before in relation to when mandates went into place and she said it proved the particular efficacy of the mask mandate. * Further told us she was extremely concerned about what would happen over the rest of the calendar year as we move into the Fall and Winter / Flu Season. What will happen with the spread of COVID accompanied by the spread of the Flu? Dr. Birx made an appeal to everyone there, including members of our Legislature leadership, that we remain our approach and be steadfast through that time period. - Simple facts are: masks work, social distancing works, washing hands frequently work, staying home when sick works. These are necessary if we want to slow the spread of COVID19 in Louisiana. Occupancy restrictions are needed otherwise you cannot engage in the necessary social distancing. If businesses and other venues have 100% of their occupancy occupied they would not be physically distancing. There is no definition that does not require a distancing of 6ft between people who are not in the same household. - Restrictions are absolutely necessary if we are going to curtail the spread of the virus, the number of people who go to the hospital, and yes the number of people who died. - Burying one's head in the sand and pretending it doesn't exist doesn't help. The virus doesn't care if you're tired of it. It doesn't' care if you don't care. It just doesn't work like that. - Tomorrow morning I will be going to a memorial service for April D. A treasured member of my team at the Governor's office. You may remember she died from COVID 19 back in March. We are going to service tomorrow because it hadn't been safe to have a service of the type of her mother wanted for her. She was bright, hard-working, and she advocated for individuals with disabilities just like herself. When I think of all of the good work April did it certainly warms my heart, but when I think of all of the good work she could have done for our state but that she died prematurely it breaks my heart. Then you think as of today 5,614 Louisianas are dead from this disease. That is more people that live in y home town. How many more does it take for people to take this seriously? Sadly, that number goes up every single day. When was the last time I Reported a zero because I don't remember it? Every day people are dying here in this state and around the county from COVID19. That's 5,614 there's are mothers, daughters, fathers, and sons, they are brothers and sisters in Christ. - It is my constitutional duty and therefore obligation as Governor to protect the people of Louisiana while we have a public health emergency. - *You can take away the declaration, but you will not take away the emergency you only take away the tools to deal with that emergency and try to manage it and minimize the number of people who get sick, go to the hospital, and die * - We owe it to our health care workers who have been working hard since March. They are overburdened, and many dealing with the virus themselves or with their family members. They are going to work every day and are struggling to keep people alive. - I know everyone wants to return back to normal -- no one more than I do by the way -- but in order to get as much normalcy as is possible in the meantime without overwhelming our hospitals and their capacity to deliver life-saving care we simply have to engage in common-sense measures that work and can only work through the proclamations I have issued. - Almost exactly 9 months ago today, I stood on the steps of the capital and pledged to work hard every day. I said I was inspired by the goodness and generosity of the people in Louisiana. I said my love of this state only deepened over the course of my first term. I promised you I would serve all the people of our state even those that disagreed with me. In fact, especially the people who disagree with me and that has never been more important than right now. My resolve has not changed. If anything it is stronger. - My belief that the people of Louisiana are good, generous, and decent people, has never been stronger than it is right now. So I am going to continue fighting for all of our people. I will continue to fight to keep our numbers down, to keep our people out of hospitals, to makes sure we do what works. - I appear to the goodness and decency of the people of Louisiana to do the same. We all have a role to play. We cannot get through this in the best shape possible unless we play that role. * Wear your mask, social distance, wash your hands, and stay home when you are sick. Watch and protect the vulnerable. * We will get through this, we will et through this together.

Questions

Governor my understanding the law contemplates upon receiving the petition you are to issue an executive order to end the proclamation. Do you intend to do that?
I need to get the petition and see what it says and see what it reports/directs me to do. Until I get it those questions are largely hypothetical. I can tell you I will do everything I can to manage this public health emergency for the public health emergency that it is.
Are you anticipating this will ultimately get decided in court whether or not this is unconstitutional or not? It seems that's the only remedy that is left.
That is possible. One thing that can happen is those members of the House who signed the petition who told me and others that it is a terrible idea to do the petition and said it was unconstitutional. They can remove their names and then it goes away. I guess that is possible too.
I know you haven't received it yet and do not know the specifics of the petition, but with how it came about and what it could mean is there anything about it that scares you a little bit? Makes you afraid?
I am certainly disappointed that so many people be so reckless and irresponsible. I will not say I am standing here before you and the people of Louisiana scared because I will do everything I can to protect our public health and make sure we do everything we can to manage this disease. Quite frankly, I want to say this clearly I apologize to no one for the decisions I have made and I have bent over backward to be a bipartisan or non-partisan as I can be. You would think for House Republicans it would account for something that the actions I have taken are those that have been asked of me by the White House Task Force, but I guess not. It is sad if there was ever a time to rise above partisan politics it is during a public health emergency. If there was ever a time you would think it would be now. I happen to think that is what the people of Louisiana expect. I know damn well it is what they deserve; and it what I have been trying to do from the very beginning. While certain members of the Legislature are very critical of me, and on personal terms, you have not seen me respond in kind. I believe the people of Louisiana want better than that. The fact that partisanship is rearing its ugly head in this manner and it is happening from people who know better. I promise you they know better and I know they know better because they have told me. It is a sad day, but I am not scared.
it seems the main point is to open a few more businesses across the state. Is there any more compromise you can do or more you can do to work with Republican lawmakers to maybe open a few more business or have more leeway with it?
First of all, I don't know if their point is to open a few more businesses... which ones are closed? We have a few restrictions on bars but our businesses are open in Louisiana as much or more than our neighboring states. When you get to 75% occupancy limits how many restaurants do you go into that normally have more than 75% of their tables filled? What businesses are closed today other than bars in parishes that haven't gotten <=5% positivity for two weeks in a row --- and they are only closed to on-premises consumption not otherwise. So I don't know if they are looking for anything like that. There is nothing about this that makes sense. This is just political. It is irresponsible. I guess it's possible that some people who signed want something and it may satisfy them... I do not know it will have more businesses open because we do not have many that are closed. I will tell you this that maybe that is their intent but there are some real-world ramifications if my proclamation were terminated. It puts all federal funding from the Stafford Act at risk. The Stafford Act by definition applies to emergencies and disasters. If we do not have one what right do we have to that funding? It also risks support from FEMA. The contract I have with FEMA right now has me designate one federal coordinating officer and that contract is not good if we do not have a public health emergency. I promise you FEMA is not interested in going to individuals parishes to do their own contract that is not how it works.
If the public health emergency is terminated: - GOSHEP can no longer respond to local government requests for COVID aid. Since March there have been 9,500 requests from local governments that we have responded to. - GOSHEP will no longer be authorized to acquire PPE to distribute to local governments, school systems, hospitals, medical providers, or nursing homes. - GOSHEP will no longer be able to authorize contracts to staff additional doctors or nurses to hospitals including our makeshift field hospitals and medical stations to deal with surges should they occur. The authority to go out and contract won't be there. - The National Guard will no longer be authorized to conduct local testing. They test more than 1,000 people every single day. They will be unable to do that. If you want this thing to get out of hand stop testing and lose all visibility into COVID-19, its transmission, where it's happening, and the positivity rate in Louisiana. - The National Guard would no longer be authorized to continue to monitor or work the warehousing of things that come into the state related to COVID or distribute them like PPE and testing supplies to local hospitals, governments, schools, or nursing homes. - The National Guard would no longer be able to go to nursing homes with testing supplies, assist in decontamination, sanitation when nursing homes experience outbreaks. These are not hypothetical things that we may one day like to do. These are things that are happening now, that we are doing every single day. - The Department of Health would no longer be authorized to provide nursing homes with testing supplies. What authorizes the Department of Health to be in the nursing homes is that public health emergency. - State resources would no longer available to help parishes and local governments will need to acquire supplies for COVID-19 on their own and will no longer be authorized to utilized emergency procurement methods. - Should a vaccine become available or multiple vaccines the Department of Health would not be authorized to do all the steps necessary to allocate and distribute that vaccine? - Most importantly we will lose all of the progress we have made since July. More people will get sick, more will go to the hospital, and more will die. Not just the 5,614 who have already died. - Another reason it is reckless is because of the Summer surge we are still #3 in the country in cases per capita but we would be the only state in the nation without a public health emergency in place. Without a public health emergency in place, many of the laws that were passed and put into place to protect schools and businesses from legal repercussions do not work because they are all tied to the issuance of a public health emergency. So when I tell you reckless, irresponsible, and unconscionable that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface.
Governor it seems this latest petition out of the belief of House Republican's you would veto Mark Wright's bill. Did you indicate to them that you would do that? Did they indicate to you this was coming if you were going to
I asked Mark Wright to come to see yesterday morning and he did not. I haven't had an opportunity to visit with him at all. The truth is I haven't read the bill but I will tell you what I have told you from the very beginning when this special session was called, that I would surrender no authority under the Constitution and Laws of this state that I believe to be essential to properly and effectively manage this public health emergency. If you just read that bill you will see it sought to manage this public health emergency by committee. I will tell you that will just not work. I know I have been working on this every day since March. I know how quickly decisions must be made. I know how urgent this situation is. Quite frankly, legislatures who don't even believe we have a problem ought not to have a role in the decision-making process. I am always willing to continue, as I have, by the way, to discuss what I am doing and the data that is informing my positions. All of the recommendations that come from our Public Health Department and the White House Task Force with Legislative leadership and any member of the Legislature that wants to have that conversation. We've done that.
There seems to be some expectation among Republicans that you will veto Wright's Bill have you had any conversation with House leadership or individual house members who indicated to pass the petition effort if that bill gets vetoed?
Let me tell you how bad that bill was. In the Senate, they had to twist arms to get that bill to pass and they did the same thing in the House where it passed with 54 votes. It needed 53 just to pass. There was nobody in leadership or elsewhere who expected that bill to be signed into law.
Have you spoken to Legislative leaders since news of this petition broke
I have not. Not since the petition broke. When I say legislative leaders I have had many meetings with legislatures today to discuss many other things but I have not had the opportunity to speak with the President or Speaker since the news broke. But, I do look forward to the next opportunity to visit with them and share many of the same concerns I shared with you.

2020.10.23 03:01 autotldr Mississippi asks Supreme Court again to review its 15-week abortion ban

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 53%. (I'm a bot)
The Mississippi attorney general petitioned the Supreme Court again on Thursday to review the state's 15-week abortion ban, a case that directly challenges Roe v. Wade and has the potential to reverse the landmark 1973 decision.
In the seven-page supplemental brief, Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch pointed to separate abortion-related cases where federal appeals court judges have extracted different interpretations of the Supreme Court's decision in June Medical Services v. Russo - the court's most recent abortion case which struck down a Louisiana abortion regulation.
In Fitch's initial July request that the Supreme Court review the 15-week ban, he posed the question of "Whether all pre-viability prohibitions on elective abortions are unconstitutional," a direct challenge to the core finding of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that nationally legalized abortion prior to fetal viability, which generally happens around 24 weeks into a pregnancy.
Mississippi's petition comes as the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court is all but guaranteed, giving the high court a 6-3 conservative majority and clouding the future of abortion access.
The court has rescheduled consideration of whether to take up Mississippi's ban three times already since the state initially requested the Supreme Court to intervene in June.
Last December a federal appeals judge struck down the state's ban, writing, "In an unbroken line dating to Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court's abortion cases have established a woman's right to choose an abortion before viability States may regulate abortion procedures prior to viability so long as they do not impose an undue burden on the woman's right but they may not ban abortions."

2020.10.21 00:41 ChyInc My employer insists they overpaid me $1500 despite the fact I did not sign the paperwork for my new position until yesterday.

I work for a casino in Mississippi. Before quarantine, I was a valet who worked on a toke rate. When we returned in July, I began the job duties as a bellman. The bellman position did not formally exist within the company at the time. I "applied" for the position last week and signed the transfer papers yesterday. The date next to my signature being October 19th, 2020.
As I am leaving work today, my manager pulls me into her office to state that I owe the company $1500 and will be garnished to the fullest extent so they can have the books corrected before the end of the year. They claim they were paying me with the shared toke rate of the valet runners instead the pay I receive now, that I signed the paperwork for only yesterday. There are five paychecks left before New Years and it will take minimum (if I am lucky) four paychecks to cover the majority of the $1500.
There was no paperwork that stated I had been working as a bellman since July. I will pick up copies of my bellman application and transfer paperwork to verify of when I formally started the position tomorrow.
What are my options? Thank you for taking the time to read this and offer insight.
Edit/Update:
Today has been consumed by all of the hoops I had to jump through to get information. My secondary manager, two positions above me, has been incredibly helpful and I’m grateful for her. She had two documents (both from payroll) with the exact amount; however, the documents had two different amounts!
I asked an HR receptionist for copies of every document I have signed since returning to work in July. He asked a superior who said, “Once the documents are in your file, they are sealed and cannot be opened.” (I believe this untrue but will let it rest for now.)
I had an interesting (and recorded) phone conversation with an unhelpful head of HR that I will leave out.
As for further information, I learned I was in the system as strictly a valet until yesterday. I was not hired to be a bellman until yesterday. There will be a meeting with the general manager of our property soon about all of this.
I will be contacting US Department of Labor Services tomorrow to see what my options with them will be.

2020.10.15 20:07 transfo47 How QAnon uses religion to lure unsuspecting Christians - CNN

How QAnon uses religion to lure unsuspecting Christians
DANIEL BURKE OCTOBER 15, 2020
(CNN)Parker Neff was scrolling through conservative posts on Facebook when he saw an unfamiliar hashtag: #WWG1WGA. Recently retired after serving as a Southern Baptist pastor for more than 20 years, his time was free and curiosity piqued. "I started looking into it online," Neff said. "Doing some research." And with that, the 66-year-old retiree, and soon his wife, Sharon, fell down one of the internet's most dangerous rabbit holes. It didn't take long for Neff to find the hashtag's meaning. "Where We Go One We Go All" is one of several mottoes of QAnon, a collective of online conspiracists. The pastor and his wife, who live in Arcola, Mississippi, began watching the vast collection of QAnon videos posted online by "researchers" who decipher the cryptic messages of "Q," an anonymous online persona who claims to have access to classified military and intelligence operations. Since its inception in 2017 QAnon has quickly metastasized, infiltrating American politics, internet culture and now -- religion. A woman holds up a QAnon sign at a President Trump campaign rally on September 22, 2020, in Moon Township, Pennsylvania. According to QAnon, President Donald Trump is secretly working to stop a child sex cabal run by Hollywood and political elites who will one day be revealed during an apocalyptic event known as The Storm. During the pandemic, QAnon-related content has exploded online, growing nearly 175% on Facebook and nearly 63% on Twitter, according a British think tank. Although QAnon's conspiracy theories are baseless -- they allege that a famous actor is secret sex trafficker and a leading Democrat participated in Satanic rituals -- the dangers the movement poses are very real. The FBI has called QAnon a domestic terror threat and an internal FBI memo warned that "fringe conspiracy theories very likely motivate some domestic extremists, wholly or in part, to commit criminal and sometimes violent activity." Facebook finally pledged to ban QAnon content earlier this month. "Right now QAnon is still on the fringes of evangelicalism," said Ed Stetzer, an evangelical pastor and dean at Wheaton College in Illinois who wrote a recent column warning Christians about QAnon. "But we have a pretty big fringe. "Pastors need to be more aware of the danger and they need tools to address it," he told CNN. "People are being misled by social media." Some Christian pastors are actually leading their followers to QAnon, or at least introducing them to its dubious conspiracy theories.
During services in July, Rock Urban Church in Grandville, Michigan, played a discredited video that supports QAnon conspiracy theories. "The country is being torn apart by the biggest political hoax and coordinated mass media disinformation campaign in living history — you may know it as COVID-19," the video says. The church did not answer requests for comment and has removed the video from its YouTube channel.
Pastor John MacArthur of California, an influential evangelical who is battling county officials over the right to continue indoor services at his Grace Community Church, espoused a theme popular in QAnon circles when he misinterpreted CDC data and informed his congregation that "there is no pandemic." MacArthur declined CNN's request for comment.
There's even a movement, led by the Indiana-based Omega Kingdom Ministry, to merge QAnon and Christianity -- with texts from both the Bible and Q read at church services.
"If you are just learning about QAnon and The Great Awakening, this is the right spot for you," reads the ministry's website. Representatives from the ministry did not respond to multiple requests for comment. Paul Anleitner, an evangelical pastor in Minneapolis, said he's seen worrying examples of conservative Christians preaching from QAnon's bible: Pastors warning about the "Deep State," congregants trading conspiracy theories during Bible studies, and, most concerning to him, unsuspecting Christians lured to QAnon through respected church leaders. "I see this circulating through conservative and Charismatic churches and it breaks my heart," said Anleitner, who spent time in Pentecostal churches, where he says QAnon's influence is distressingly pervasive. "It's pulling families apart, pulling people away from the gospel and creating distrust among people searching for the truth." Earlier this year a young Christian friend of his recirculated QAnon ideas posted online by a national Christian leader, Anleitner said. (He declined to name the pastor on the record). "I reached out to my friend and told him the stuff he posted came directly from QAnon," said Anleitner. "He had no idea." QAnon is complex, said Brian Friedberg, a researcher at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government who has studied the movement. It churns out an almost endless stream of content, from memes to anti-Semitic tropes to Christian Scripture. From its anonymous message board, the dubious ideas circulate through social media, sometimes finding their way into the Twitter feed of Trump and his allies, who have repeatedly boosted QAnon accounts. In QAnon, some observers see a mass delusion, others see a political cult, and still others claim to see the sprouts of a new faith. According to the religious view of QAnon, Q is a postmodern prophet, "Q drops" (aka his messages) are sacred texts and Trump is a messianic figure who will conjure "The Storm," an apocalyptic revelation exposing evildoers. If QAnon is a new religion, it bears the birthmarks of our truth-deprived time: Born on an obscure internet image board, it spreads through social media, preaches a perverted form of populism and is amplified by a president who has demonstrated little regard for facts. But in Mississippi, the Neffs said they see QAnon as a source of "behind the scenes" information -- not as a religion. "It's kinda like checking Fox News or CNN," -- that is, a place to find the latest news, said Park Neff, who has a masters in divinity and a doctorate from New Orleans Baptist Seminary. "It just seemed to be good, solid conservative thought." Like her husband, Sharon Neff said she saw no contradictions between QAnon and Christianity. Instead, she saw important connections, as did many of her friends and fellow church members. "What resonated with me is the idea of moving toward a global government," she said, "and that actually goes along with the Christian belief about the End Times." It interprets world events through the lens of Scripture or Q posts. It's obsessed with a grand, apocalyptic Reckoning that will separate good from evil, deeply distrusts the media and finds an unlikely champion -- and hero -- in President Trump. Neff also said she likes that Q quotes Christian scripture extensively and claims to be exposing child trafficking, a problem that she said she and other Southern Baptist women have been fighting for years. That's no accident, say experts who have studied QAnon. The group intentionally uses emotionally fraught topics, like suffering children, to draw Christians to their movement. "That's a recruiting tactic," said Travis View, a host of "QAnon Anonymous," a podcast that seeks to explain the movement. "It's their red pill." (Travis View is a pseudonym he uses for safety. ) View compared it a religion that proselytizes by offering potential converts seemingly mundane services before laying the hard sell on them. "People who start with 'saving the children' don't stay there -- and that's the problem," he said. "It's like Alice in Wonderland. They follow the rabbit and enter a totally different framework for reality." Friedberg said he sees elements of his experience as a young evangelical in the QAnon movement: Its seamless blend of Christianity and nationalism, its promise of spiritual knowledge and the primacy of scripture, and, finally, the desire to evangelize to friends and family. "This is an information operation that has gotten out of the direct control of whoever started it," he said. It's an operation, he added, that likely would not exist in a less polarized, confusing and frightening time. Under somewhat similar strains, a group of 1840s Baptists called the Millerites predicted the Second Coming of Jesus. When Jesus didn't arrive, the Millerites were greatly disappointed, but they adjusted their apocalyptic timetables and soldiered on, eventually becoming the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Travis View said he sees echoes of the Millerites in QAnon. Numerous QAnon "prophecies" have proven false. Hillary Clinton was not arrested in 2017, Republicans didn't rout Democrats during the 2018 midterm elections and Trump has not imprisoned his political enemies at Guantanamo Bay. These days, Q shies away from giving specific dates, View noted, suggesting a shift in tactics. Even so, believers attempt to explain away any contradictions between QAnon and reality, just as the Millerites did centuries ago. "Some of it seems like deliberate misinformation to throw off the other side," Neff said, "as should be apparent to anyone who watches the news. Sometimes he (Q) does it to rattle their cages, sometimes to keep them guessing. It seems to work." Meanwhile, Neff, like many interested in QAnon, looks forward to the Great Awakening. The pastor said it won't be like the other Great Awakenings, the religious revivals that torched through early America. It will start when the prevailing evil in our government is finally revealed, he said, and end with Trump validated and all the bad people jailed on an island far, far away.

2020.10.14 20:26 AndyJPuente Biggest 2020 NBA free-agency, draft and trade decisions for the Boston Celtics:

Source: https://www.espn.com/nba/insidestory/_/id/28953850/biggest-2020-nba-free-agency-draft-trade-decisions-all-30-teams
Offseason focus
Draft assets
Cap space breakdown
Team needs
Extension eligible: Jayson Tatum (rookie), Semi Ojeleye, Gordon Hayward and Marcus Smart
Free-agent status

The Jayson Tatum extension

If and when Tatum signs a max extension, he will join the likes of Ben Simmons, Jamal Murray, Pascal Siakam, Devin Booker and Karl-Anthony Towns as players who have signed a max extension since 2018.
The $158 million projected extension (based on a $109 million cap in 2021) will be the largest contract in Celtics history and the first time a player has signed an extension for the maximum in Danny Ainge's 17 years as the Celtics' lead basketball executive.
There are no benefits to waiting until the summer of 2021, when he would become a restricted free agent. Tatum is a franchise player, ranked No. 3 in the latest ESPN 25-under-25 (behind only Luka Doncic and Zion Williamson) and is coming off an All-Star season in which he averaged 23.4 points on 45% from the field and 40.3% from 3. He ranks 11th in ESPN's Real Plus-Minus this season and in the top 10 in win shares. He was named Eastern Conference player of the month in February after averaging 30.7 points in 12 games.
Tatum's $28.7 million cap hold combined with the $75 million owed to Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart have the Celtics already over the cap in 2021.
Brown's four-year, $103 million extension was reached at the deadline last year, but Tatum's negotiations should go more quickly, with the main issues being a potential fifth-year player option and whether there is All-NBA language in the contract that would trigger an increase in salary.
Simmons, Murray, Booker and Towns signed five-year contracts without a player option. The four (along with Siakam) also had All-NBA language in the first year of the extension. For example, Simmons' contract will increase from 25% of the salary cap in 2020-21 to 30% (first team), 29% (second team) and 28% (third team).
The Tatum extension would not start until 2021-22, the year that Gordon Hayward will be off the books unless Hayward re-signs to a team-friendly contract. Signing Hayward would likely push the Celtics into the luxury tax for a second consecutive season and the third of four years.

Balancing the roster: draft, free agency and future finances

Boston has 14 players under contract (not including two-way players) and four draft picks this year (Nos. 14, 26, 30 and 47). That does not factor in restricted free agent Brad Wanamaker.
Here are the obstacles and possible options Boston has with regard to its roster:
1. Dealing with limited roster flexibility
Unlike last year when the Celtics had three open roster spots, that is not the case this offseason. The Celtics technically have 12 guaranteed contracts when you factor in the $5 million in non-guaranteed salary for Daniel Theis.
That leaves Boston having to make decisions about the non-guaranteed contracts of Semi Ojeleye and Javonte Green. Keeping both players would almost certainly see Boston having to make a trade with a player like Vincent Poirier or hoping that Enes Kanter opts out of his contract.
Last year Boston entered the draft with four picks and left with three players on the active roster (Grant Williams, Romeo Langford, Carsen Edwards) and a fourth (Tremont Waters) on a two-way contract.
2. Trading out of the first round for a future asset
Boston has established a pattern of consolidating assets. Last year, the Celtics flipped pick No. 20 to Philadelphia for Nos. 24 and 33. They sent the first from the 76ers and Aron Baynes to Phoenix for the 2020 first from the Bucks (acquired in the Eric Bledsoe trade).
Boston was trading No. 22 for essentially two valuable picks: a future first-rounder and the third pick in the second round. Trading Baynes also cleared cap space to sign Kemba Walker and Daniel Theis.
Of course, the downside is that Boston essentially passed on players like defensive stopper Matisse Thybulle (No. 20 pick) and All-NBA rookie first team Brandon Clarke (No. 21)
3. Packaging the Memphis pick (No. 14) and another first to move up in the draft
This is another form of consolidation and goes with the "quality over quantity" discussion that the Celtics will have leading up to the draft. It is also where the Celtics would need to trust their scouting department. For instance: What is the value of moving up to No. 10 to get the Phoenix Suns' pick? Is it worth picks No. 14 and No. 26? Or how about picks No. 26 and No. 30 for the Nets' pick at No. 19?
In 2013, Boston traded No. 16 and two second-round picks to move up three slots to draft Kelly Olynyk. (This is the same draft where Milwaukee selected Giannis Antetokounmpo at No. 15.)
This approach infamously backfired for the Chicago Bulls in 2014 when they traded Nos. 16 and 19 to Denver for the 11th pick. Chicago selected Doug McDermott while the Nuggets got two eventual starters, Gary Harris and Jusuf Nurkic.
4. Treating the draft as free agency
There is an argument to be made that the Celtics should keep all three first-round picks despite the roster crunch.
Because of Brown's extension that is set to begin and a likely max extension for Jayson Tatum that would start in 2021-22, plus Walker's max contract (which began last year), the Celtics will be limited as to how they add to their roster for the foreseeable future.
With three new players via the draft, the Celtics would have six young players earning a combined $20 million per season, or just $3.3 million per player. With that, instead of a revolving door of minimum-contract or tax-midlevel signees, Boston would have bench stability at a low cost.

NB: again, not much to be gained from state pages, so this took a bit more digging.
Per the EAC Compendium:
Poll managers paid $75 for an election and the County’s Board of Supervisors may approve an additional sum up to $50 per election. A Manager who is designated to be the Receiving and Returning Manager is entitled to an additional $10 for carrying the ballot box to the polling place and another $10 for returning the ballot box after the election. If the Receiving and Returning Manager uses a privately owned vehicle, he or she is entitled to mileage for any miles traveled in excess of 10 miles. Miss. Code Ann. § 23-15-227
  • Training has an hourly wage per Mississippi law:
The County Board of Supervisors may compensate managers for up to sixteen (16) hours of time and shall not be less than federal minimum wage and no more than $12.00 per hour. Miss. Code Ann. § 23-15-239(3)
I checked every county's quick info page on Work Elections, this is what I found for election day compensation:
  • Pay varies widely by county, but all counties pay.
  • Lowest amount is $75, highest is ~$175-$190.

COVID-19 Compliance

I cannot find any official state mandate detailing COVID-19 procedures during elections. If someone on the ground knows more, please comment.

Poll Watchers

  • Mississippi law is kinda lax on poll watchers. There's nothing that says they have to wear visible identification (someone correct me if I am wrong).
  • They allow the candidates on the ballot to hand pick their own poll watchers (in addition to the regular methods) and even can nominate themselves to watch the polls. Beware.


Extra useful stuff

Work Elections: Mississippi for finding comprehensive county-level info
EAC Compendium 2020: Mississippi for all the important laws and statutes on poll workers
Secretary of State: County Election Boards for an interactive county list
Secretary of State Basic Computer Skills for Clerks a really dated guide on how to operate a computer?
2020 Poll Managers Election Day Activities.pdf) A handbook on election day procedures

All state residents (and non residents) are welcome to contribute their knowledge.

2020.10.06 03:58 CFB_Referee Hurricane Delta

Hurricane Delta is currently a Category 3 hurricane and is expected to remain or near that strength at landfall.

A note on the name: When we go past 21 named hurricanes in a season, we switch to the Greek alphabet. It is 21 because in the English alphabet name list we do not use Q, U, X, Y and Z. This has only happened once before, in 2005. Here's the Greek alphabet, for reference: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, Zeta, Eta, Theta, Iota, Kappa, Lambda, Mu, Nu, Xi, Omicron Persei 8 , Pi, Rho, Sigma, Tau, Upsilon, Phi, Chi, Psi, Omega. You can learn more about hurricane names here.
 
 
Please look to local news, local weather, and local and state emergency management agencies to find out more about how you may be affected, if you need to evacuate, and steps on getting prepared. Please everyone stay safe.

Latest news

Last updated: Saturday, 10 October 1:00 PM CDT (18:00 UTC)

Delta continues to weaken as it crosses into Mississippi

Satellite imagery analysis over the past several hours reveals that Delta is steadily losing tropical characteristics as its fully exposed low-level center crosses from Louisiana into Mississippi this afternoon. Animated infrared imagery indicates that the depression has produced very little deep convection this afternoon, though Doppler radar continues to depict bands of heavy rainfall moving across the southeastern United States. Cooler, drier air continues to wrap into the cyclone's circulation from the west and south, creating a frontal boundary which extends southward across Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.
Intensity estimates derived from Doppler radar velocity data and surface observations indicate that Delta is producing maximum one-minute sustained winds of 30 knots (35 miles per hour). Delta's low-level center continues to move increasingly toward the northeast as the cyclone remains embedded between a mid-level trough to the west and a deep-layer subtropical ridge to the southeast.
Latest data NHC Advisory #24 10:00 AM CDT (15:00 UTC)
Current location: 33.1°N 90.8°W 64 miles NNW of Jackson, Mississippi
Forward motion: NE (35°) at 14 knots (16 mph)
Maximum winds: 30 knots (35 mph)
Intensity: Tropical Depression
Minimum pressure: 994 millibars (29.36 inches)

Forecast discussion

Last updated: Saturday, 10 October 1:00 PM CDT (18:00 UTC)

Heavy rainfall will spread across the southeastern United States this weekend

Delta is expected to continue to weaken as it transitions into a remnant low over the next couple of days. Storm surge generated by Delta prior to landfall is expected to gradually subside by this evening along the Louisiana coast. Heavy rain will continue to fall over the lower Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys this weekend. An additional 2 to 4 inches of rainfall is expected over eastern Arkansas and northern Mississippi, and 1 to 3 inches is expected to fall over northern Alabama, the Tennessee Valley, and the mid-Atlantic states through the weekend. The potential for much heavier rainfall over the southern to central Appalachian Mountains exists, with 3 to 6 inches of rainfall leading to possible widespread flash flooding, as well as some urban flooding and isolated minor river flooding.

2020.10.02 05:03 hyrulewarrior360 Att refusal to install high speed internet

Here’s the back story, back in 2017ish att finally started bringing uverse/dsl to the area I live in (it’s very rural as in everybody that lives in this spot is related) first 2 people signed up for and it was decently fast so I called att and put in my order for it too, att informed me that My address my serviceable and they set up an install date and everything, that date comes and tech guy does his thing and halfway into the install gets the call from att telling him to stop the install of MY INTERNET because they’ve decided they weren’t going to do any new installs here because the ports were all full and they would only be doing stuff for the 2 people they did the installs for (lazy jackasses) tech was pissed because they wasted his time, I’m pissed because they wasted my time and didn’t do what they agreed to do when I ordered it. They literally told me to wait for fiber to be installed (wtf I’m not waiting 5 years for your lazy ass company to install fiber when it took til 2017 for you to bring dsl here) it’s now 2020 and me and 6 people have option for high speed internet and att refuses to let any other companies come out here because it’s their coverage area. I’m thinking a complaint of some kind would help but we all that att is greedy, lazy, and with the news coming out that they took 220+ million dollars from Mississippi and never fulfilled the contract of broadband in that state just downright a shitty company. I have 0 options for uncapped high speed internet and att refuses to help!

2020.09.25 14:36 VisibleConfusion69 Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc- If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act

Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc – If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
Dear Steve,
On June 1, you shared a letter on Reddit’s blog “Remember the Human – Black Lives Matter”. In this letter, you claim “as Snoos, we do not tolerate hate, racism, and violence, and while we have work to do to fight these on our platform, our values are clear.”
As of today, neither you nor any other Reddit admins have shared this letter anywhere on reddit.com. However, the response to this message was swift on Twitter, where you were rightfully labeled as hypocritical based on your long and well-recorded history of defending racism and white supremacy on this site.
Among the many responses was this message from former CEO of Reddit, Ellen Pao.
I am obligated to call you out: You should have shut down the_donald instead of amplifying it and its hate, racism, and violence. So much of what is happening now lies at your feet. You don't get to say BLM when reddit nurtures and monetizes white supremacy and hate all day long
Many others shared links and screenshots of your past statements saying “Open racism and slurs are fine to post on Reddit”.
The problem of Reddit’s leadership supporting and providing a platform for racist users and hateful communities has long been an issue. Nearly six years ago, dozens of subreddits signed the original open letter to the Reddit admins calling for action. While the Reddit admins acknowledged the letter and said it was a high priority to address this issue, extremely little has been done in the intervening years.
On June 5, you shared this update on /Announcements, Upcoming changes to our content policy, our board, and where we’re going from here. In the post, you stated that there is a need for continued adjustments of Reddit’s content policy to address racism and that this remains a priority. These continued statements that you hear us, that this is a priority, or that you are working on it are not enough. It has been five years since your return as CEO and this still remains Reddit’s most glaring problem.
Steve, if you and Reddit genuinely care about the values of standing up to racism and hate, then you need to back it up with real action. As moderators on this website who have dedicated countless hours to keeping this site running, we call on Reddit to take the following steps:
At /AgainstHateSubreddits, we have laid out the many failures of Steve time and again to stand up to white supremacy on this site time and time and time again.
With a website with the impact of Reddit on the broader conversations being held in communities around the world, this website needs real leadership and real action.
We hope that Reddit will not just share empty platitudes — but will take a meaningful stand against hate, and take these recommendations to heart.
This letter is co-signed by more than 200 300 350 430 550 650 800 communities representing well over 200 hundreds of millions of subscribers:

2020.09.24 06:28 memesandcommunism LETTER TO REDDIT CEO

Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc– If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc – If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
Dear Steve,
On June 1, you shared a letter on Reddit’s blog “Remember the Human – Black Lives Matter”. In this letter, you claim “as Snoos, we do not tolerate hate, racism, and violence, and while we have work to do to fight these on our platform, our values are clear.”
As of today, neither you nor any other Reddit admins have shared this letter anywhere on reddit.com. However, the response to this message was swift on Twitter, where you were rightfully labeled as hypocritical based on your long and well-recorded history of defending racism and white supremacy on this site.
Among the many responses was this message from former CEO of Reddit, Ellen Pao.
I am obligated to call you out: You should have shut down the_donald instead of amplifying it and its hate, racism, and violence. So much of what is happening now lies at your feet. You don't get to say BLM when reddit nurtures and monetizes white supremacy and hate all day long
Many others shared links and screenshots of your past statements saying “Open racism and slurs are fine to post on Reddit”.
The problem of Reddit’s leadership supporting and providing a platform for racist users and hateful communities has long been an issue. Nearly six years ago, dozens of subreddits signed the original open letter to the Reddit admins calling for action. While the Reddit admins acknowledged the letter and said it was a high priority to address this issue, extremely little has been done in the intervening years.
On June 5, you shared this update on /Announcements, Upcoming changes to our content policy, our board, and where we’re going from here. In the post, you stated that there is a need for continued adjustments of Reddit’s content policy to address racism and that this remains a priority. These continued statements that you hear us, that this is a priority, or that you are working on it are not enough. It has been five years since your return as CEO and this still remains Reddit’s most glaring problem.
Steve, if you and Reddit genuinely care about the values of standing up to racism and hate, then you need to back it up with real action. As moderators on this website who have dedicated countless hours to keeping this site running, we call on Reddit to take the following steps:
At /AgainstHateSubreddits, we have laid out the many failures of Steve time and again to stand up to white supremacy on this site time and time and time again.
With a website with the impact of Reddit on the broader conversations being held in communities around the world, this website needs real leadership and real action.
We hope that Reddit will not just share empty platitudes — but will take a meaningful stand against hate, and take these recommendations to heart.
This letter is co-signed by more than 200 300 350 430 550 650 800 communities representing well over 200 hundreds of millions of subscribers:

2020.09.19 06:01 assessment_bot [ Fatal(1) ] [ 09/01/2020 ] PIPER PA28, Walker/ MN

On September 1, 2020, about 2007 central daylight time, a Piper PA-28-235 airplane, N8957W, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident in Walker, Minnesota. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 personal flight.
The flight originated at Hardy-Anders Field Natchez-Adams County Airport (HEZ), Natchez, Mississippi, about 0912, and landed at Kirksville Regional Airport (IRK), Kirksville, Missouri about 1303. According to records obtained from the FBO at IRK, the pilot purchased 76.1 gallons of 100 low lead aviation gas. The airplane departed IRK about 1436 with an intended destination of Bemidji Regional Airport (BJI), Bemidji, Minnesota.
While inbound to BJI and receiving services from Minneapolis Air Route Traffic Control Center (ZMP ARTCC), controllers became concerned about the pilot possibly suffering from hypoxia based on altitude and course deviations, and slow communication responses. ZMP controllers directed the pilot to divert to St Cloud Regional Airport (STC), St. Cloud, Minnesota, airport for medical assistance and subsequently declared an emergency for the pilot. Upon landing at STC the pilot was met by emergency medical services. The pilot refused medical treatment and then departed VFR from STC without air traffic services to BJI. According to the FBO at STC, the airplane was not serviced with fuel before departure.
Preliminary radar data indicated the airplane departed STC and flew northeast and climbed to about 4,000 ft mean seal level (msl). As the airplane approached the BJI terminal area, a line of adverse weather was observed over the intended route of travel and radar data showed the airplane made several course deviations (Figures 1 and 2). The airplane turned east, completed two 360 turns, then continued southeast headed away from BJI. The airplane then entered a course reversal, and turned northwest back toward BJI. During these deviations, the airplane descended to about 2,000 ft msl and then climbed back to 4,000 ft msl and continued to climb and descend before entering a continued climb to about 7,000 ft msl followed by a continual descent toward the ground. The last target was at 2007:39.
The airplane wreckage was located in Leech Lake, about 31 miles southeast of BJI, in about 12 ft of water. The fuselage and tail section were intact; the wings had separated from the airplane but were still connected by cables.

2020.09.14 18:35 CFB_Referee Hurricane Sally

Sally remains a hurricane and is moving slowly.

From the latest public advisory (as of 9/16 11:30 AM ET) Sally is likely to cause issues with rainfall, storm surge, surf, wind tornados, and flooding - including potential inland flooding.
Check your local weather or emergency management agency for more specific information where you are.

  • Assume floodwaters are deeper than they look. Turn around, don't drown.
  • Learn your flood and evacuation zones!
  • Food safety from the FDA and USDA.
  • If your home floods and you need to go up, head for the roof. Keep an ax in your attic to get out that way if you need it.
  • Be aware of potential 911 delays.
  • Evacuate! If you can, check on people you know to see if they need help evacuating if you can offer it or put them in touch with someone who can.

2020.09.12 18:46 Darthfuzzy Megathread: Tropical Storm/Hurricane Sally

What is Damp May Never Dry!

This thread has been updated as of 3pm on 9/14
A storm is in the gulf and might be headed our way. As such, it's time for a megathread!
In order to make it easier and provide current information to individuals, please keep the conversations surrounding the storm to this thread. We are trying to consolidate the more serious conversations/information to this thread. It is highly recommend that you sort comments by new given the changing environment
For the time being, memes and funny-ish posts can be standalone posts. This is subject to change depending on how the situation evolves. Despite all the humor surrounding it, please take this event seriously and make plans based upon your needs.
Below is some general information/advice, but should not be taken as official recommendations. Please listen to local/national authorities in determining your next course of actions. I will try to update this post with current information when I can.
Once the storm gets closer to landfall, we will switch from this standalone post to the /TropicalWeather live thread as it's a great resource to get up to date information on the storm.
P.S. If you believe something should be appended/amended to this post, please let me know and I'll be happy to consider it.

What is happening?

Hurricane Sally is off the SE Coast of Louisiana and is anticipated to keep moving NW towards the Louisiana/Mississippi Gulf Coast over the next 48 hours. The storm is projected to reach hurricane force winds before making landfall sometime between very late Monday night/Tuesday morning. Most models are now predicting a Cat 2-3 landfall.
This storm is not necessarily going to be a huge wind concern - but due to the slow moving nature of the storm, this is expected to be a major rain event with up to 10" anticipated over the next week.
As of 2:40pm on 9/14, the storm has moved slightly more east and we're expecting an Gulfport/Biloxi landfall. We're still not out of the woods yet, but it looks like we might get some western rain bands (as dry as the western side looks). Expect the worst, hope for the best.

Where can I get more information on projected paths, evacuation notices, and general preparation information?

As always, we recommend paying attention to local and national media forecasts. Here are some official government links for you to monitor:
And some local news sources as well:

I'm a weather junky and I need my fix, what do you recommend?

Again, please take advice of your local and national government when making decisions. However, like you, I like knowing what the Euro, GFS, UKMET, HMON, HWRF, COAMPS and Navy models are all doing at all times. For these people:

Should I evacuate?

Please refer to the above local/national section when making your evacuation plans. Every person's situation is different. Please begin making preparations 3-4 days out. I will attempt to monitor and post evacuation updates below, but please refer to this article by WWLTV for more up to date information:
Mandatory Evacuations (As of 9/13):
Voluntary Evacuations (As of 9/13):

Cat 3 then flee, otherwise I'm staying.

Cool. Good For You! Some people aren't so lucky and can't afford to stay. However, here's some general advice for those of us who are new to those whole hurricane thing:

What should I buy?

/TropicalWeather has a fantastic mega-thread on this that I am stealing. I highly recommend visiting this link and making sure that you have all of these things in your household.
Also pop-tarts. All the pop-tarts. Brown sugar for life though.

How much alcohol should I stock up on?

Yes.

What about public transportation? Will it still be operational?

While a lot of people don't have reliable alternative transportation, always make sure you have a plan. In general, you shouldn't expect public transport to operate during a hurricane. Don't rely upon it. Make plans to move to a safe location or a shelteevacuation center prior to the storm.
Should you need evacuation notices and/or assistance, please review the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority's website for further information on public transportation and and out of the city in the event of a mandatory evacuation.
Update as of 9/13 from RTA:
In preparation for expected impacts of Hurricane Sally to the Gulf Coast region, the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority will suspend all bus and streetcar service beginning at noon on Monday, September 14th. Ferry services will be suspended after normal operations on Sunday, September 13. Services will remain suspended until further notice.

What schools will be closed?

Schools will likely be closed the day before the storm. Depending on the extent of the damage and various other factors (power, water, etc.) it's unknown for how long the schools will be closed for.
It's recommended that you monitor your local parish's school district websites for up to date information on school closures. That being said, we'll post information as it becomes available. WWLTV tends to have a good up to date listing that's available here. Most private institutions abide by the local Parish's closures, but please refer to your specific school for up to date information.
For universities, please refer to your university's individual emergency guidance.
Orleans Parish
Jefferson Parish
St. Tammany Parish
Plaquemines Parish
St. Bernard Parish
Lafourche Parish
Terrebonne Parish
St. Charles Parish

Sandbags?

There is a complete list available from WWLTV. I will be publishing some of the major parishes below.
Orleans Parish:
Sandbags will be available beginning 8am on Sunday for Orleans Parish Residents:
St. Bernard Parish:
Self sandbagging will be available Sunday morning beginning at 8 a.m., going on until sand runs out. Residents can fill their sandbags at the following locations:
Plaquemines Parish:
Beginning at 10 a.m., parish-wide sandbag locations will be open, but residents should bring their own shovels and only take what they need. Bags will be provided. Residents can fill their sandbags at the following locations:
St. Tammany Parish:
St. Tammany Parish Government will open six self-service sandbag locations beginning Sunday. All locations will have sand and bags provided. Residents are asked to bring their own shovels in case all shovels provided are in use. residents are asked to limit the number of sandbags to 15 per vehicle. There will be someone on-hand to help the elderly and/or disabled at each location.
The locations will be open Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Monday 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Can you sharpie this situation away?

Neither NOAA nor FEMA recommends this. It doesn't work.

2020.09.09 00:25 rayef3rw A Brief Look at How Covid-19 Impacts Current Annual Consecutive Game Streaks

I think the fact that this season will be a college football season like no other goes without saying. This year is a patchwork quilt of teams that are or aren't playing this fall (or something in-between), with many more games likely to be postponed or canceled due to ongoing Covid-19-related fallout.
Perhaps the only close comparison is the 1918 season, where the closing months of WWI sidelined many of the teams that had traditionally played college football, and the Spanish Flu sidelined the rest for varying periods of time.
Looking back through the history of college football, the World Wars (US involvement during 1917-1918 and 1941-1945) have been the two primary disruptors of the traditional yearly meetings between college football teams. I'll do a little more analysis later on in the post, but the vast majority of the existing consecutive game streaks in college football date to post-WWII, with only 27 currently-surviving consecutive match-ups dating to before 1941.
With that introduction, let's take a look at the longest-surviving uninterrupted match-ups in college football and which ones will be impacted this fall. As a quick aside, this of course all depends on how these records get counted going forward and whether a Spring 2020 season (if/when it happens) will be fully counted as the "2020" season, so I'll just add the caveat that these are uninterrupted fall meetings for now -- and assume that applies throughout.
Let me also preface this list by saying that while I tried to include all of the smaller FCS/DII conferences, I would be shocked if I didn't miss a few. If you notice any uninterrupted rivalry games missing from this list, please! -- let me know!

So, what does this all mean? I won't do a full re-hash of the chart, but I'll do some highlights and summaries of the important sections below.
As a side note, I kind of arbitrarily chose to end in 1972, but it has some justification that I'll get to later on. Really, though, it was mostly just because I felt like that was a decent stopping point.

Most Common Causes of Breaks Before Covid

So, what was the primary reason that most these consecutive game streaks last came to an end? And will it be beaten out by Covid, assuming Spring 2020 doesn't count/doesn't happen? I didn't do a fully exhaustive search (partly because some stuff was hard to find and partly because I got tired of looking, if we're being honest), but World War II ended the bulk of the streaks on this list, adding up to about 40 of the matches. The other factors aren't particularly close to matching that total, though World War I is probably the next closest, aside from generic scheduling conflicts/choosing not to schedule each other, with about 5 stoppages.
Other common factors included:
Other less common reasons for breaks that I found amusing included:

Implications

Discontinued Games

The teams and conferences that suffer the most from this are exactly who you'd expect it to be. The Ivy League, Big Ten, and Pac-12 are losing the most uninterrupted games, though the Patriot League, the SWAC, and the MAC are also losing some notable matches
By far the most notable game that will not be played this fall will be the LafayetteLafayette LehighLehigh match-up; it will be the first time in 123 years that the game won't be played in the fall. It was last forgone in 1896 due to a dispute over player eligibility; had it not been for that break in relations, The Rivalry would have dated back wholly uninterrupted to the two teams' first meeting in 1884, which would have been good for 136 consecutive years of playing.
The next oldest game not to be played this fall is the MinnesotaMinnesota WisconsinWisconsin game, followed by the ClemsonClemson South CarolinaSouth Carolina game, which has been played continuously since 1909, meaning the 2020 season will be the end of 3 of the longest-running continuous series in all of college football.
Finally, one game I hate to see go is the MorehouseMorehouse TuskegeeTuskegee match, which had previously been played continuously since 1936. I couldn't find a lot about the history of this series online very easily, but it's the longest-running HBCU match I could find. Several other historic HBCU rivalries ended temporarily fairly recently owing to the disbanding of Prairie View A&MPrairie View A&M for the 1990 football season.

Previously Unbroken Series

Unfortunately, Covid is putting an end to a few series which have previously met every year without interruption. Those matches include:

Non-Conference Games That Were Maintained

You've got to give a lot of credit to any ADs who managed to keep non-conference rivalry games going through all this. The only consecutive non-conference rivalry games that will survive undamaged are those belonging to three major service academies. Unfortunately, the Merchant MarinesMerchant Marine and the Coast GuardCoast Guard were not so fortunate, and have canceled their fall season.
The ArmyArmy, NavyNavy, and Air ForceAir Force managed to keep afloat their rivalries which have been played continuously since 1971/72 for the Air Force and since 1930 for the Army and Navy. This was possible only by the work of the Air Force, who, as of right now, will be playing only Army and Navy this fall, though the Mountain West Conference did recently announce a revised schedule which allows for 2 non-conference games, so this could change. Both ArmyArmy and NavyNavy are currently playing full schedules.
This was really the main reason I stopped making my list in 1972. That, and it lets me talk about the Textile Bowl (NC State vs Clemson). I'll discuss that in the following section.

Games Unlikely to Be Rescheduled

Though most of these games are intra-conference games that can be rescheduled in the Spring fairly easily, there are a few notable games that will almost certainly not be. Many of these games include teams who will both be playing this season, but will be playing in different conferences or unable to meet for other reasons. These games include:

Non-Conference Games Which Can (Probably) Be Rescheduled

While Conference games are possible to be scheduled fairly easily, there are a few non-conference games which will probably be resumed this Spring.

Closing

To answer that question I posed earlier (will Covid potentially impact more currently-consecutive football meetings than World War II), the answer is yes. While this is a bit disingenuous to say, since many otherwise-consecutive rivalry games impacted by World War II have stopped playing since the war for other reasons (looking at you, 2010-14 Conference Realignment), Covid will impact 66 otherwise-uninterrupted matches, while 32 will continue on. Of those 66 canceled matches, though, only the 9 listed above (under the are Unlikely to Be Rescheduled section) are, in my view, highly unlikely to be revived in the Spring, while the rest can continue on in the Spring if scheduling and Corona allow.
1 - I would like to find a more concise and formal source, but so far one has evaded me
2 - Several Minnesota-based athletic pages say that the cause was Teddy Roosevelt banning rivalry games in 1906; despite that, the only period explanation I've found for the break in the games was a June 1906 article about a ChicagoChicago MinnesotaMinnesota game scheduled for 1907, which said the 1906 match-up was prevented because "The big nine conference [Big 10 today], in forbidding games which established a western championship, did so on the ground that it brought about an unhealthy rivalry and stirred up improper spirit between the big educational institutions." Though the Big 9 could have chosen to do that because of threats by Roosevelt, the immediate cause was the conference's decision.
3 - Some sources disagree on this: At the time of their first athletic break, then-AD at BGSU said "Frankly, Toledo is too tough for us in football. We feel that we can no longer compete on even terms." However, there have also been references to players having "more trouble avoiding flying fists than avoiding blockers and tacklers" before the series was temporarily canceled as well.
