2020.09.19 02:40 IndecisiveRock Update for Sebring 12 hours

TL:DR. limited fan access, current ticket holders can exchange tickets for the 2021 race, Gifts for those arriving early to the track, limited number of 2020 tickets to go on sale Oct 14th, 2021 tickets on Dec 14th, all areas of the track except for the paddock area is open to the public.
"As you plan for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Nov. 11-14, we want you to feel safe, informed and ready to experience the same great racing that IMSA and Sebring have delivered for 68 years. While November’s crowd size will likely be smaller and activities that encourage mass gatherings will have to wait until next year, our hope is that you will move forward with your plans to join us for IMSA’s season-ending WeatherTech Sportscar Championship race as well as several other season-ending events.
Many fans have called, sent us e-mails or posted their opinions on social media on how to operate this event. We have heard you and are managing our activities with all fan and competitor comments in mind. We ask Sebring Nation to understand that most of the decisions any event promoter makes in this environment comes with great scrutiny and adherence to health guidelines established by officials at multiple levels: federal, state, county and city.
Our objective, as always, is to deliver the greatest amount of fun and excitement for our guests while always focusing on the safety of all attendees. Opportunity to Exchange Tickets for March 17-20, 2021 If you already purchased tickets and parking for the 2020 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring and you are unable to attend this year’s event, you can return your tickets and parking passes by October 15 and receive a full credit toward tickets to the 2021 event. To receive a full credit, return your tickets and parking passes to:
Sebring International Raceway Ticket Department 113 Midway Drive Sebring, FL 33870
Grateful Gifts for Early Arriving Fans Because our fans have been through a lot this year, including the postponement of the originally scheduled March race and an altered November track schedule, Sebring International Raceway will provide guests arriving Wednesday and Thursday with free stuff – some of which you can eat and drink and other items to hang on the wall. When you arrive with your four-day passes, as always, Sebring’s smiling gate workers will welcome you and hand you coupons for services to be redeemed on site. It’s another way for the Raceway staff to “Thank You” to its passionate and patient fans. The track president says he plans to buy everyone a beer Wednesday evening!
2020 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Tickets Go on Sale Oct. 14 A pre-determined number of tickets will be available for the November race and will go on sale Oct. 14. If available, tickets and parking passes will also be available for purchase at the gate. Military and student tickets will be available at the gate only. Only SuperTickets and unreserved parking passes will be available. No additional hospitality, Club Sebring, Celebrity Cruises Luxury Lounge or car corral tickets will be available.
2021 Mobil 1 Twelve Hour Tickets Go on Sale Dec. 14 Looking forward to the 2021 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, renewals for reserved parking and fan hospitality packages, including Club Sebring and the Celebrity Cruises Luxury Lounge, will be available Nov. 16-Dec. 11. On Dec. 14, all available tickets and fan hospitality will be available online to the public. While we all hope that full operations will return for the 2021 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, the manner in which we operate events in November as well as the continued improvement of public health conditions will ultimately determine our ability to return to normal.
Pre-Event Staging and Gate Opening Times Early arriving guests will be permitted to stage in the grass parking lot off Carroll Shelby Road beginning at noon on Tuesday, Nov. 10. Follow signs to pre-staging and you will be parked in the order you arrive. Gates will open at 6 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11 and vehicles will be admitted in order from the pre-staging lot. Pass outs will be available around the clock. If tickets remain, they will be sold from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. When gates reopen on Friday at 6 a.m. tickets will remain on sale through the conclusion of the event or until capacity is reached.
Fan and Corporate Hospitality Club Sebring, Celebrity Cruises Luxury Lounge and Gurney Terrace are sold out for 2020. In addition to a reduced number of tickets sold in these areas, Club Sebring and the Celebrity Cruises Luxury Lounge will be expanded to allow for additional distance between guests. Corporate hospitality suites will operate at 50 percent capacity. While catering and beverage service will be available, how guests are served will be amended.
Corvette and Porsche Car Corrals The same great exclusive parking and viewing areas, including grandstand seating and tent space outside of Turn 17, will be home to both Porsche and Corvette corrals. While in year’s past fans with a Porsche key fob or PCA Membership Card have been provided access to the Porsche corral, in November only guests with tickets to the Corvette or Porsche corrals will be permitted access. Although Covid-19 precautions have caused both Porsche and Chevrolet to forgo direct corporate involvement in the corrals for 2020, Sebring International Raceway will continue to provide exclusive trackside parkin and grandstand seating for corral ticket holders and parade laps for the first 100 cars registered. Open-air tents with daily beverage service, a catered lunch on Saturday, grandstands and television feeds will be provided.
The Fun Continues on the Midway All food vendors and display partners will be located adjacent to the automotive manufacturer display area on the Midway. The Fan Zone and Vendor Village will include multiple bars, food trucks and display as well as recorded music and a large screen TV to keep up with on-track events.
To Mask or Not to Mask While we recognize that not all attendees and guests intend to wear masks or face coverings, in order to be able to host fans for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring we will follow mandated protocols in public areas of the facility. Like you we want face masks to go away – FOREVER. To help us all get to that point face coverings or face shields will be required in areas considered to be public gathering places and when interacting with guests or Raceway staff outside of your group. Face shields or face coverings will not be required while guests are in their own parking and camping areas – provided there are no gatherings with outside guests.
Public areas include restrooms, vendor areas, corporate displays or viewing areas where social distancing is not possible. We have established these protocols to comply with federal, state, and local guidelines so that we may admit spectators to the event.
Room to Roam Unlike the Cadillac Grand Prix of Sebring in July, all guests will be free to roam between Green Park and the Midway, provided they are wearing face coverings. While trams will not be operated, guests can freely access viewing mounds, the Midway, Vendor Village and the Fan Zone. The competitor paddock will be open only to competitors and IMSA officials.
Gate Operations Each guest will be screened prior to entering Raceway gates -- initial screening will include questions regarding current health status and potential exposure, as well as a non-contact temperature check. Individual bottles of hand sanitizer will be provided to guests upon entry.
Gates will open at 6 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11. Pass Outs will be available all days, but no ticket sales will take place from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Wednesday or Thursday. When gates reopen Friday at 6 a.m. ticket sales will be available through the conclusion of the event or until capacity is reached.
Pipo’s Return One driver has had a virtual lock on Winners Circle at Sebring in recent years. Pipo Derani will return in the Whelen Engineering Cadillac looking for his third consecutive Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts title. Derani and the No. 31 Action Express team also won the Cadillac Grand Prix of Sebring in July. His victory in 2018 came behind the wheel of an Extreme Speed Motorsports Nissan and last year’s win was with Action Express. Derani and fellow Brazilian teammate Felipe Nasr’s Cadillac currently sits third in the 2020 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship standings, one point behind the No. 5 JDC-Miller Motorsports Cadillac and five points behind the series-leading No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac of Wayne Taylor Racing. For the first time ever the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Series championship will be decided at Sebring International Raceway.
Note – These plans are subject to change based on conditions. "

2020.09.17 21:38 ezriddle [F4M] Gotham City RP

Gotham City is no stranger to violence and crime, and it can be found in both the slums and among the more privileged population. I'd like to explore the latter with an original character of mine, the daughter of a quickly rising "businessman" who has tapped into a fortune of money and crime and develop a relationship between herself and your character, regardless of what side they tend to play on. Are they one of Gotham's well-known heroes? A vigilante? Or, are they one of the so-called "super-criminals" who thrive on the chaos?
I prefer discord for my roleplays. I am openly accepting both heroes and villains. I will note that I have already a few Jason Todds and Bruce Waynes, and while I am still accepting them I would also love a villain for a change! I will accept others if I feel that they would mesh well with my character. I will consider original characters if I'm given enough to work with. I do have a preference here for male canon characters. If you've read this far, please tell me your favorite comic book (if you have one)! I always love recommendations, and I like to make sure my partner is aware of what I have posted entirely. Thank you and I can't wait to discuss!

2020.09.17 20:03 DarkKnight9448 [M4F] The Court of Owls (1x1, Batman)

With the publicity the Court of Owls is getting, and the Caped Crusader being very relevant... I figured I’d try my luck. I do hope you enjoy reading this advertisement! I’ve been a fan of Batman for as long as I can remember- my comic collection began to pile and pile up; I watched every movie, TV series, and played any game related to him times over. Soon I began to understand him absolutely- his brooding and protectiveness; his immense intellect to his sheer ferocity. Coupled with the fact I love to write... I just knew I had to be him.
So, what’s a Batman without his Catwoman? I’m looking for someone to take the mantle of Selina Kyle as we explore the duo taking on what is possibly their biggest challenge yet- together. I am looking for an adv-lit/novella partner for this; as I want to really dive into the complexity of our characters, and Gotham City— really enjoy the story. I probably don’t have to say this, but there will definitely be romance, and that will actually be a big part of this Roleplay. You also must be okay with some mature themes- such as strong language and gore, because Gotham is a deep, dark place... that goes without saying. I don’t mind if you don’t completely know DC inside-and-out, but at least hold some knowledge of Batman’s immediate allies and villains- also known as the Rogues Gallery. I do intend for us to balance out playing side characters such as the Bat Family, and the all-important villains. I think that’s all of my requirements out the way! Please do enjoy the plot below- let it be known I have a Discord, which is largely prefer RP’ing on. I can give that out in DM’s. Please don’t contact me via Reddit’s chat system, as I will only be answering my PM’s.
Plot:
2020, Gotham City, the State of New Jersey. The solemn streets, slick with rain, howl a hallowed past, and allude to the dark future of the mega city. Neon scintillates in puddles, the luminescent gloom of Wayne Enterprises. For once, it’s quiet. Gothamites know what it’s like to live again- as humans. All until The Dark Knight stumbles upon a lone cadaver, stowed away on the smoky, gritty rooftops of Gotham’s East End. Faceless, mutilated; its gender stripped from it, from diabolical surgical meddling. Even to the grizzled, hardened vigilante, it’s a grim sight. Next to it, on the archaic, charcoal black bricks: “IMPERFECT”, written in cheap white paint, as if it was a form printed From a computer... a steady hand conveying its message to the world. This was no murder, robbery, assault. This was a targeted crime against humanity. And Batman was working on borrowed time, until he struck again.
Though the reign of the Caped Crusader was famed and absolute, the East End had its own reluctant protector... the elusive Catwoman. Upon her mischievous deeds, the cat burglar stumbles upon a similar sight- a deceased soul, carved in the same way. Batman and Catwoman decide to partner up, to catch this abhorrent killer... But, unbeknownst to them, it was all a distraction. A deep seated malevolent corruption Imbeds itself within City Hall, using the string of shocking murders as something to keep Gotham’s protector occupied. Now the unlikely duo is forced to do more than simply investigate a murder, but save Gotham City from an invasion centuries in the making... The Court of Owls have decided to strike- with Batman and Catwoman being the only driving force to stop them. With an attack from all fronts, the duo bond in a fight for their lives...

2020.09.12 23:13 TooEashy イーシーのパワーランキング

1) Duckies
okthen elite+, eashy v good, ballerina quite good, tng quite good. Well rounded powerhouse with high potential. Putting us first is a no brainer. My mental has improved tenfold since the start of the season and I will show all the haters here that I am indisputably better than wayne.
2) Spherious Business
Altiger elite, DT v good, ez quite good, q42 aight. I needed someone to put second and these guys are decent I guess. Alt had a very good draft and him/ez are gonna be a potent offense. DT on D is actually good too. Last season him and syn switched positions for a couple scrims and we werent a dumpster fire so thats good I guess. q42 was a great snag to round out the team.
3) HGW
Hat elite+, curry quite good, first aight, Arby meh. Did you guys see the team Hat carried to playoffs last season? Like holy shit what a horrible draft from Hat but he still managed to drag them to a .500 record. Now instead of traffic cones as teammates he has some passable players who might be able to shoulder some of the burden.
4) ABO
mex elite+, syn ???, sun chips quite good, grumpy aight. This defense has the potential to be the best defense ever assembled in NA in any league (MLTP, USC, OTI). It all depends on the result of Syn's seasonal d20 roll. I really like sun chips and think hes good but I don't think he's ever carried an O yet so he's gonna have to step up.
5) 877
crippy elite, gg quite good, bamboozler aight, pro boat meh. Crippy is crippy, always good, never wins. Playing D this season so he'll have to be lights out for this team to be good. gg has my number but seems bad against other people so I never know how to rate him. Bam has constantly been getting a few percentage points better each season which is great but he's still not quite there yet. Where's there? Who knows. I like pro boat, I like how he's grinding, I like how he's pretty new to tagpro, he has a high ceiling but even most greats dont start out great.
6) Rektiles
Doris v good, pulpo quite good, fender aight, misaki meh. Doris is good but worse than people think he is. He won MVB in one of the worst MLTP seasons and now everyone think he's insane? I'm not buying it. pulpo also has my number and he is a really strong playmaker but in my experience he tilts and blames his partner a lot if he's not playing next to someone better than him. This very well could be Fender's break out MLTP season but thats only if he gets on pulpo's good side. Multiplying the chemistry struggles is misaki who buts a -50 mental debuff on everyone who's on his team. And like syn, misaki has to roll a d20 die but this time the die is weighted towards lower numbers. So in summary, this team will be good if they're lucky but could easily fall apart.
7) Spjork and his Jorks
Ty v good, Spjork aight+, megatron aight, Selfysyntax meh. Ty has real carry potential. He really good on D and when he swings O hes really effective (idk if its just me but sometime I don't expect the "D" player to grab). Spjork's fine I guess. Megatron has been getting better but him/selfy aren't gonna cut it probably.
8) Sphere Itself
BALLDON'TLIE v good, djinni quite good, aaron aight, BDL's partner meh, grant aight? This is already a weak team but now apparently djinni has tango lessons every sunday starting halfway through the reg season. BDL also gives up really easily if he's on a weaker team so I can't see him tryharding the entire season especially when the only other good player is getting replaced. aaron is aight but can him and grant keep the flag in enough for BDL to not tilt? Doubtful.

2020.09.12 03:00 portlane AnnMarie Bentley (April 5, 1941 - Aug. 31, 2020)

AnnMarie Bentley
April 5, 1941 - Aug. 31, 2020
AnnMarie (Cusimano) Bentley, passed away after a seven year battle against dementia.
She is survived by her partner of nearly 18 years, Chuck Jones; her son, David Cook; two brothers and their wives, Johnny and Jackie Cusimano and Jim and Betty Cusimano; and several nieces and nephews.
AnnMarie was born and spent her early years in Rochester, N.Y., where she attended Catholic grade school and St. Joseph's Business School. She married Wayne Cook, who moved the family to Lake Oswego, Ore., in 1974 then to Anchorage, Alaska for four years and back to L.O.
She worked for over 23 years in the real estate industry, finishing her career with Windermere Properties.
The major tragedy in her life was the loss of her 46-year-old daughter, Susan in 2011
Since July 2018 we have lived at Mary's Woods retirement center in L.O., In February we moved her into the memory care unit at Mary's Woods. However, we felt it would be best to move her from Mary's Woods and there was no place locally so in April, we moved her to Athens, Ga., close to her brothers. She passed in Saint Mary's Hospice House. She and Susan will be interned at 11 a.m., Sept. 25, 2020, River view Cemetery. There will be a short service outside for no more than 50 people. And due to the current situation we must ask anyone that wishes to attend to please RSVP to [email protected]. The service will also be provided on Zoom.

2020.09.11 21:47 ThrowawayForDPP96 [M4F] Justice League: Gods and Monsters

Hello everyone, I've recently watched Justice League: Gods and Monsters as well as read the spinoffs, and I'm extremely interested in exploring that world. For those unaware, the Gods and Monsters universe is a darker version of DC's world with unique twists on characters. For example, Kirk Langstrom is the Batman of this universe instead of Bruce Wayne, and is a vampire instead of Manbat. Superman is Hernan Guerra, the son of Lara and General Zod that was adopted my Mexican immigrants. Wonder Woman isn't Diana Prince, and is instead the New God, Bekka.
Sadly, only the Trinity and a few villains were really introduced. There are some other hero and villain background characters, though most didn't get much attention. So while DC may have neglected this universe, there's plenty of potential for our own takes on characters. Go nuts with your own ideas!
I'm looking for a partner to either roleplay as any canon Gods and Monsters characters, or to incorporate canon characters into the universe with their own twists. I'm not picky about the portayal or twists as long as the character is a canon DC character. For my character, I'm mostly interested in either roleplaying as Kirk or Hernan, though I'd also be down for portraying Gods and Monsters versions of DC characters.
Moving on to the boring rules part of the post, I'd like for my partners to be detailed. I average about 300-400 words per reply, and would like for a partner that could respond within a similar range. I'd also prefer to stay away from OCs, sorry! Finally, the Gods and Monsters universe is really dark, so I'd like for my partner to be open to various NSFW themes.
If you're interested in roleplaying in this darker take on the DCU, go ahead and send me a message!

2020.09.10 14:38 PaulChittenden From Plumbers Apprentice to $100 Million - 26 Business Lessons from an Expert Marketer (Conor McGregor)

Conor McGregor went from plumbers apprentice to making $100 Million. This is not all that surprising given he is a sports superstar.
What is surprising is that he did this in MMA, a sport that notoriously doesn't pay this kind of money.
In fact, McGregor's net worth is at least 3X that of his TOP peers in the sport. And if you look at the Top 15 highest-paid fighters in the UFC, three are only there because they fought McGregor.
Conor McGregor is surely a controversial character, but there are surely some business lessons to learn from his rise to fame. After studying his career and countless hours of video, here are 26 lessons I've learned from the man himself.

Lesson 1 - Find a Need in the Market that Needs Fulfilling

When Conor moved to a new suburb, he lost his group of friends and had to start over. As the new guy, he got in his share of fights. Without a group of friends to back him up, he needed to learn to fight so he could protect himself. With boxing training, any potential attackers might find themselves getting more than they’ve bargained for and decide to pick on an easier target.
Crumlin Boxing Club fulfilled that need for Conor, and initiated his journey to superstardom.
In business, you need to find a need with your particular audience. Fulfill that need and buyers will come to you.
Let’s take boxing gyms as an example.
In a rough neighborhood, you’ll find “real” boxing gyms. The boxers here come to learn how to truly fight and even compete.
In “upper-class” neighborhoods, you’ll find more cardio based boxing gyms. The goal at these gyms are more for exercise than actual fighting. You won’t see too many sparring sessions at these gyms.
Both models are successful. Understand your market.

Lesson 2 - Find Your Passion. Try new things

McGregor and Tom Egan, while opposites, met in high school both enjoyed MMA. They watched UFC broadcasts on weekends together. It was Egan who sparked Conor’s interest in MMA.
Conor started dabbling in both MMA and boxing, and eventually, left boxing for his true love of MMA. With this focus, Conor went on to dominate the MMA scene.
In business, even the best entrepreneurs can get burnt out. If you look at Elon Musk, Richard Branson, or Steve Jobs, they are all extremely passionate about what they do.
They can and do put in the hours to become the best in their niches. When they speak, you hear the passion and feel drawn to their cause.
It’s hard to be tremendously successful if you hate what you do.

Lesson 3 - Find a Mentor to Increase the Likelihood and Decrease the Time to Success

Although they were around the same age, Tom Egan made it to the UFC first. Conor saw his pal in the UFC, and knew that he had a chance too. The impossible became possible and no longer just a dream.
In business, you need to find a mentor who is ahead of you. Mentors can help you avoid big mistakes.
More importantly, mentors show you what is possible and can create a complete level change in your game.

Lesson 4 - Surround Yourself with People That Want You to Succeed & Will Support You. Stay Loyal to Them.

Dee Devlin has been by Conor’s side since the beginning. She supported him when he was a nobody.
She believed in him.
Dee experienced all of the ups and downs on the path to fame. They grew together.
When you become rich and famous, people try to take advantage of you. It becomes harder to find true friends and romantic partners. Conor avoided this and married the girl who helped him get to where he is now.
Let’s face it, some successful entrepreneurs did not have this support system. They were doubted, laughed at even. This doubt fueled their desire to succeed.
Even so, these entrepreneurs eventually built teams which were so inspired by the entrepreneur’s vision, they eventually do build these supportive relationships.
If you do have this support system, remember who was there supporting you from the beginning. True friendships are an important foundation for happiness as you become more successful.

Lesson 5 - Intense Focus on Your Craft Decide on What You Want and Put 100% Focus Into It

Not only did Dee Devlin give Conor emotional and moral support, she financially supported him as well. She waited tables so that Conor could focus 100% on his training. She helped him buy healthier foods to fuel his body.
Conor was naturally talented. Adding in 100% focus to his training allowed him to accelerate his skills much quicker.
Most people are juggling too many things. Spending hours playing Call of Duty, late nights drinking, dreaming instead of doing, are taking time away from honing your craft.
The best of the best are practicing. They are making sales calls. In the studio.
With 100% focus and persistence, you will eventually make it.

Lesson 6 - The Law of Attraction Visualizing Yourself to Greatness

Conor attributes the use of visualization and the Law of Attraction to manifest his way to becoming a champion.
This all sounds kind of crazy, but the same technique has been cited by Jon Jones and Ronda Rousey, plus dozens of athletes and mega celebrities including, Kobe Bryant, Cristiano Ronaldo, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lindsey Vonn, Tony Robbins, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Will Smith, Lady Gaga, and Kanye West,.
What is the Law of Attraction?
The Law of Attraction is a belief that a person’s thoughts and focus bring positive or negative experiences into the person’s life.
Conor’s sister Erin, a bodybuilder and fitness model, recommended he read The Secret, a book on the Law of Attraction. He opted for the DVD version.
"Even when I first watched it, I was like, this is bulls--t," McGregor told Bleacher Report in 2015.
But after watching it, something clicked. Conor and Dee started using it to visualize little things, like getting the front parking spots. After seeing it work, he went on to visualize himself as a champion. In fact, his family credits the moment he watched The Secret, as the birth of Conor McGregor, the superstar.
Stop thinking small. Dream big!

Lesson 7 - Fight IQ Get a Deep Understanding of Your Competition

In his first UFC post fight interview, he clearly said that he thought Brimmage was emotional and would overthrow his shots. Conor fully understands there is the game before the game.
McGregor’s fight IQ is off the charts.
All fighters watch films of previous fights. Try to find subtle tells. They begin each fight carefully, trying to figure out distance and timing.
Watching Conor, it almost looks intuitive. It seems that he knows his opponents better than they know themselves.
This is most evident after the Aldo fight. Video is released of McGregor practicing the exact sequence that dispatched the 10-year winning streak of the champion.
After the fight, Conor said he saw a subtle tell before the bell rang. Aldo’s right hand was twitching. He knew Aldo was going to unload a big right hand that would set up his left hand knockout punch. Seriously, watch the video below. Mystic Mac believes in the power of visualization.
Know your competition. You can outsmart them. Be faster. Have better customer service. Be good where they suck.

Lesson 8 - Be an entertainer. Stand for Something. Be Polarizing. People Will Love You or Hate You & That’s Not Bad.

Dana White knew Conor McGregor was going to be a star the very first time they met. Why?
Dana said it was his personality. His laugh.
What else is underneath this?
Conor McGregor had a clear focus to become UFC Champion and become rich and famous. He had an outlandish personality. He was witty. He would entertain the masses.
I’ve never met Conor McGregor in person, but from most reports from fans and casuals alike, McGregor is a completely different person outside of the ring.
A nice and pleasant guy.
Is the UFC Conor McGregor just a persona?
Who else had success in the UFC with an outlandish and polarizing personality?
The WWE has perfected this character. They call them the heel. Conor McGregor may or may not be the heel, but he definitely is polarizing, and he is very much like a WWE character.
Love him or hate him, every MMA and boxing fan knows Conor McGregor.
Like the greatest before him, McGregor knows that almost any attention is good attention.
Step into the MMA forums or a Facebook discussion, and you will see the Conor McGregor haters out in full force.
But guess what, his haters still buy his PPV fights - to see him lose!
If you want to be a public figure, amplify your message. Take who you are, and multiply that by 3X or 10X.
Sure, you want to be authentic. Don’t be someone you’re not. But take it up a notch.
Be exciting. Be an entertainer.

Lesson 9 - Find Your 1000 True Fans Cater to Your Base

In his first UFC fight, Conor is seen with an Irish flag draped over his shoulders as he walks to the ring. Before he was a worldwide superstar, Conor worked to become the ambassador of Irish MMA.
In fact, as his stardom grew, it seemed half of Ireland would travel to his fights.
The UFC, having dominated the American MMA market, was ready to move into Europe, and Conor McGregor would carry the entirety of Ireland.
Kevin Kelly, editor at Wired magazine, wrote an essay called “1,000 True Fans.” The essay, a must read, states that all it takes to earn a living as creator is 1,000 true fans who will buy your work.
For McGregor, his fanbase started with his countrymen. As his stardom grew, so did his base of fans.
In business, you have to find your core supporters. The people who will buy your product. The people who will share your content. The people that love your product or service so much they have to tell their friends about it.
Find your Ireland and grow from there.

Lesson 10 - Fighting is a Mind Game Discover Your Opponent’s Weaknesses

Conor McGregor is a master of getting inside his opponent’s head. Often, his opponents become emotional and abandon their game plan or overextend their shots.f
Many fighters talk trash. Many fighters try to intimidate their opponents. They may even come close to actually fighting during staredowns. But - they don’t completely destroy 8 weeks of game planning the way Conor does.
Before the fight with Dustin Poirier, McGregor said:
Just as he says, he defeats Poirier by KO in the first round. Mystic Mac is born.
Dustin Poirier is an amazing fighter. As a fellow Louisiana boy, he’s one of my favorites.
I don’t believe that Dustin was beat in the ring. He was beaten before the fight.
McGregor baited him. Made him angry. Dustin Poirer didn’t follow his game plan.
Conor’s remarks that this is just a game really sums it all up. After the Dustin Poirier fight, we see McGregor take his head games up a notch. The best example is the fight with Aldo.
Aldo went 10 years without a defeat. Fighters were afraid of him.
After defeating Dennis Siver, McGregor jumps the Octagon fence and goes straight for Aldo, showing he has no fear of the champion.
The pre-fight insults from McGregor are being hurled at unprecedented speed - expletives, racist comments, attacking the entire Brazilian nation. But when McGregor steals Aldo's belt, there is one moment when you see the look of defeat on the Brazilian's face.
McGregor raises his hands as if he already knows he’s the champion. Aldo, unable to do anything in the moment, mentally breaks. Maybe it was just a seed of doubt, but McGregor was in his head.
As a small brand, sometimes going after the big guys can be tough. Study your competitor. Find out what they do well and where they are lacking.
No one is perfect. Focus on your competitor's weaknesses. Fill those gaps. Be nimble. Slowly take market share by doing what they cannot.

Lesson 11 - Differentiation - Discover What Sets You Apart from the Crowd

Conor had big dreams. He was already visualizing himself as a massive star. A rich, popular, double champ at that.
How would the double champ act? What would he look like? How would he speak?
Rumors were going around that McGregor was getting easy fights. Maybe it was true. The UFC was investing in his brand to grow the European market. They didn’t want their golden boy to lose yet.
I cannot confirm this through any research, but I’m sure Conor was aware of the UFC’s plans and his role in them.
Instead of denying the matchmaking, McGregor doubles down and talks about his relationship with Lorenzo (one of the owner’s of the UFC). In fact, they even have a tradition of toasting a shot of whiskey after McGregor’s wins.
McGregor has gone from plumber’s apprentice to UFC star. His Lorenzo comments are positioning him as the employee who is winning and dining with the CEO. Isn’t this the dream of all employees?
Go back to the beginning of Conor’s Instagram. It quickly goes from typical fighter to businessman and luxury everything - clothes, cars, private jets.
He dons his trademark suits.
Conor is no longer just a fighter. He’s the guy from the rough neighborhood that made it.
He’s transcended fighter status. He’s different.
In business, marketing and positioning are the key to market domination.
Your brand, your image, your packaging, your customer service. Are they aligned with your target market?

Lesson 12 - Understand the Machine that Drives Your Industry

McGregor worked hard to build his personal brand. He built his profile, entertaining the masses and winning in spectacular fashion.
Winning fights gets better fights. But have you noticed that some fighters keep winning but aren’t given a main event? Maybe they are passed over for a title shot?
Why?
McGregor understood the game. He dove into the machine head on, realizing that putting up big numbers gets you bigger opportunities.
More than anything, the UFC organization is a promotion and hype machine. The UFC’s job is to sell fights, build storylines, and develop fighters.
Conor understands this. He has fully leveraged the UFC’s marketing powers to 10X his brand. He layers his own marketing on top of the UFC’s efforts.
McGregor took chances. He talked smack. He manufactured beef / rivalry. He won his fights in spectacular fashion, and he built his social media empire to engage his fans.
The UFC brass see this. They know his popularity is growing, so they put even more dollars behind him to promote him. He coaches on the Ultimate Fighter Season 22 against Urijah Faber (another very popular fighter). He gets more popular. He pulls bigger numbers. It’s a never ending cycle for now.
With fame and celebrity comes opportunities. Big names pull big money. Bigger purses. Bigger sponsorship deals. And other opportunities outside the ring.
What is the machine behind your industry? Determine how the big boys in your industry are winning.
Is it their sales team? Is it paid ads? Is it media coverage?
Deconstruct the winners and find your way in.

Lesson 13 - When Opportunity Presents Itself, Take Your Shot

When Aldo was injured, Mendes stepped in on 3 week’s notice to fight for the interim title.
Both McGregor and Mendes saw the opportunity, McGregor, an interim belt and Mendes the belt plus a McGregor payday,
While this happens all the time, it is a risk. McGregor was preparing for a different fighter. Mendes didn’t have a full training camp.
In business, opportunities can present themselves at any time. It is up to you to see them and capitalize on them.
“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes - then learn how to do it later.” - Richard Branson

Lesson 14 - Precision Beats Power, Timing Beats Speed

A fighter studies their opponent to understand their movement, any tells, and potential holes in their game. Conor does this exceptionally well.
In my first few sparring sessions, my biggest surprise was how fast the more advanced fighter's were. Not their hand speed. It was how fast their mind worked. They saw my punches coming almost before I threw them. They were able to move out of the way and counter with ease. They saw something I didn't see.
A fighter with a high fight IQ has:
So far, Conor's only hole is his ground game. Standing up, he has the upper hand. After the Aldo fight, he said this:
This quote is a great way to think about business.
Precision beats power. Oftentimes, you are competing with the big boys, the entrenched competitors, or the huge multinational corporation. They have power.
A smaller business can compete with precision. You can serve the customer better. You can offer a more personalized service. You can serve in a profitable capacity, that the big boys are ignoring because it is too small for them. Be precise.
Timing beats speed. Being first to market can help you get first crack at market share, maybe even give you time to build a moat. Yet, timing beats speed. Sometimes it is better to let the first mover establish a market before moving in. You’ll save all the cost of developing the market, and you can learn from their mistakes. Time the market.

Lesson 15 - See the Opportunity & Ask for What You Want

At this point, Conor McGregor basically gets whatever fight he wants. However, Lesson 15 flips the script. This isn’t about McGregor. It is about Nate Diaz.
After Nate Diaz defeated Michael Johnson at UFC Fox 17, he stepped up to the mic and called out Conor McGregor in an expletive filled rant.
This takes us back to another infamous McGregor press conference with reference to “Red Panty Night.”
Conor McGregor brings in huge paydays, and he says a fight with him is cause for celebration. Fighters will make more fighting him than any other fighter on the roster.
Diaz understood this. He saw the opportunity. And he asked for it.
Diaz’s first fight with Conor McGregor earned him 4X what he made for his previous second highest grossing fight.
The second fight went on to earn him more in one night than he made his entire UFC career.
Then, his rise in popularity has earned him a noticeable bump in his post McGregor fights.
What can we learn from this? Too many people can spot the opportunity, but don’t have the balls to go for it.
Ask for the meeting.
Ask for the sale.
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. - Wayne Gretzky

Lesson 16 - Rivalries are Opportunities

Nate Diaz was no match for Conor McGregor’s verbal sparring as seen in several pre-fight interviews. But Nate Diaz has his own Stockton “Gangsta” style of dealing with rivalries that fans love.
After Conor shows up 30 minutes late, Diaz walks out. Diaz’s team throws a water bottle. Things get out of hand.
Rivalries can be great marketing opportunities. This clash no doubt sold more PPV’s.
Take a look at Wendy’s taking a shot at McDonald’s on Twitter.
Look at the number of Retweets. Holy crap.
Have some fun. Maybe a rivalry is just the PR stunt you need.

Lesson 17 - Do Not Succumb to Failure. Learn from Your Mistakes. Pivot.

Mcgregor lost to Diaz in their first matchup by submission. Conor analyzed his mistakes in training and particularly his diet.
He put these learnings to use in their second matchup.
Conor came back and won their second fight by decision, in a grueling 5 round matchup.
In business, we experience failures just like in life. Markets change, regulations change, and unprecedented events such as Covid can derail our plans.
You need to be okay with failure. But don’t let a failure go to waste.
Analyze it. See what when wrong. Find out how you could have changed things. Make a plan not to make that mistake again.
Maybe you need to pivot. Maybe you just need to make some tweaks. Either way, a failure can make your business stronger, if you implement the changes necessary to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.

Lesson 18 - Make History Change the Game

In the lead up to the fight with Alvarez, a promo is released, and we hear Conor Mcgregor say:
There has not been a UFC champion in two weight classes at the same time. McGregor was gunning to go down as the first in the UFC record books.
At the same time, he would make history as headlining the first MMA fight in Madison Square Gardens. It was truly a historic moment in the world of MMA.
Riches, fame. It means nothing in the end.
But, history?
And just like the story of Roger Bannister and the four-minute mile, Conor opened up the door for other champ champs - Daniel Cormier, Amanda Nunes, and Henry Cejudo.
Too many entrepreneurs are doing “me-too” business. Chasing successful businesses in hopes of making some cash.
The true game changers are going big. Trying to change history.
Truly think about what you can do to change the industry, to innovate, to do the impossible.

Lesson 19 - Leverage Other People’s Audiences

Back in 2015, Conor McGregor and Urijah Faber were announced as coaches on the Ultimate Fighter reality show contest.
The same year, video surfaced of a sparring session between Game of Throne’s “The Mountain”
Each of these appearances allowed Conor to utilize other people’s audiences (OPA) to gain additional fans outside of his current fan base.
The UFC’s Ultimate Fighter series brought in the series’ fans plus fans of Urijah that may not have been fans of Conor and gave them a chance to get to know him over multiple exposures (episodes).
The playful sparring session with The Mountain allowed Conor to gain exposure to the Game of Throne’s audience who followed Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson. He’s appeared on the cover of GQ and appeared on the cover of Call of Duty Infinite Warfare.,
McGregor has also had appearances on Conan O’brien’s Late Night and has sung pub songs with Jimmy Fallon.
Speaking of Conan, did you know 23 celebrities own shares in the UFC? Here they are:
Now this is a genius move by the UFC. By allowing celebrities to own a piece of the UFC, the UFC knows that they will promote the business to their following, bringing in additional fans that would not normally be watching.
McGregor’s biggest example of leveraging other people’s audiences is his crossover fight with Mayweather. Mayweather is boxing’s greatest fighter ever. Not only does Mayweather have a huge audience, this fight would introduce Conor McGregor to the entire boxing audience.
No matter your industry, you need to know where your customers are. Who has a similar pool of leads in their audience?
Partner with another complimentary company that shares your audience.
Get a story written about you and your company in your industry’s magazine.
Go where the fish are, but fish with dynamite.

Lesson 20 - Know Your Numbers What is the Most Profitable Thing in Your Business?

At this point, Conor McGregor is the highest paid fighter in UFC history.
Yet, he is making peanuts compared to the big names in boxing.
Conor realizes this and guns for the biggest name in boxing, Floyd Mayweather. If he can make this happen, it will be the biggest payday in his career.
Similarly, you need to understand your own numbers. Where is the money?
What product lines are the most profitable? What are the least?
Make decisions based on numbers.

Lesson 21 - Negotiating Like a Pro Keep it Win-Win, and Give to Get

How do you get the biggest name in boxing, arguably the best boxer to ever step into the ring, to agree to a fight with an MMA fighter who has never professionally boxed?
You need to understand what the other party wants. Not just on the surface. What they truly want.
What would Mayweather possibly want?
  1. Money - Mayweather likes to spend money and is rumored to have financial troubles.
  2. Vanity - Mayweather wants to keep his undefeated record untarnished.
  3. Cash Flow - Mayweather wants big fights. At 43, the window of opportunity is slowly closing.
When Mayweather fought Pacquiao, the purse was split $180 million for Mayweather and $120 million for Pacquiao, according to Kurt Badenhausen.
Big number for sure. What could Conor offer? He has a big name, but he’s not Manny Pacquiao.
Money: Conor offers a better split of revenues. Reportedly, Mayweather took in $500 million with Conor only taking $100 million.
Vanity: On paper, this fight should be the least risk for Mayweather. Sure, Conor has a monster left hand, but he’s not a professional boxer. Mayweather believes he will retain his record.
Cash Flow: McGregor offers to promote the hell out of this fight. With Mayweather believing he has no chance of losing, he also retains his record, assuring he can continue to get big money fights.
Let’s face it. Conor couldn’t lose. Losing to Mayweather in a boxing match doesn’t hurt his brand at all, and he comes away $100 million dollars richer and an even bigger brand.
The secret to negotiating is to have a deep understanding of what the other party wants.
Make the deal win-win. If the other party has massive leverage or if the deal could be a game changer for you or your business, don’t be afraid to give them more.

Lesson 22 - Spend More Time on Promotion

MMA training takes a considerable amount of time.
MMA fighters train in multiple disciplines, lift weights, and do a ton of cardio. They also need time to sleep and recover.
With all this training, how do you even have time to promote the fight?
Still McGregor has taken time to make appearances, go on press tours, television, podcasts, and more.
A lot of fighters hate promoting. It takes time away from the things they need to do to prepare for a fight.
No matter how hard it is, promotion is key to becoming a big name in the sport.
This is great advice, especially for creatives. Creatives spend so much time producing work. It seems productive, but you need to spend equal time promoting.

Lesson 23 - Diversify You Need Multiple Revenue Streams

As in most professional sports, MMA fighters take a brutal toll on their bodies. It is hard to determine the average fighter’s career length, but the 9-year rule, stating that fighter’s start to decline around the 9-year mark, is a good indicator.
This means that most fighters only have 10 years to maximize their career earnings in the sport.
McGregor has done this through sponsorships:
He has a residency deal with the Wynn Las Vegas for his post fight after parties.
He owns digital properties selling workouts (McGregor FAST Program), emojis (MacMoji App), the MacTalk App, and the everything McGregor and MMA website, the Mac Life. All of these generate additional revenue.
Then like a true Irishman, he started his own line of whiskey, Proper 12, just in time before the biggest fight of his MMA career against Khabib Nurmagomedov. In a genius move, McGregor sponsored his own UFC fight to promote his new whiskey. The brand has reportedly brought in $1 billion in sales in its first year.
Changing markets, the economy, or a pandemic can all change everything in an instant. It is important to have multiple revenue streams to both maximize revenue generation opportunities and safeguard you from a change in circumstances such as a lay-off.
Side Hustles are becoming more and more popular!

Lesson 24 - There is No Such Thing as Bad Publicity

Conor McGregor and his team’s bus incident ignited a flurry of bad press. A string of bad publicity follows. Let's take a quick look at the Google trends for Conor Mcgregor searches over time:
There are 12 peaks indicating high searches:
  1. Becomes Cage Warriors Double Champ (& tweeted by Joe Rogan)
  2. McGregor vs Mendes (& interviewed on Conan)
  3. McGregor vs. Aldo
  4. McGregor vs. Diaz I
  5. McGregor vs. Diaz II
  6. McGregor vs. Alvarez
  7. McGregor vs. Mayweather
  8. McGregor Bus Incident
  9. McGregor vs. Khabib
  10. Accusation of Sexual Assault
  11. Mcgregor Bar Fight
  12. Mcgregor vs. Cerrone
Numbers 8, 10, & 11 are all bad press.
But an old saying by P.T. Barnum rang true.
The fight with Khabib went on to become the biggest fight in UFC history.
Now the saying isn’t 100% true, we’ve all seen bad press sink a company, but let’s be real, this is the fight game. The fans secretly loved it. Come on, he’s a fighter. We expect this.
Bad Publicity can actually help smaller brands, as it still gets eyeballs on the product, service, or person. The strategy definitely has some risks, but we’ve seen some major brands built with bad press (think Kim K’s sex tape).
However, larger brands can lose a lot of business with bad press.

Lesson 25 - Forward Momentum Propels You Forward Choose Your Battles Wisely

After a long lay-off between the Khabib defeat, Conor needs to win a big fight to get back in title contention.
Donald Cerrone is a great matchup. It is a fight he is expected to win as he is a -300 favorite according to oddsmakers. Plus, Cerrone is one of the most entertaining fighters to watch with his stand and bang style.
McGregor’s quick win over Donald Cerrone provides him with forward momentum once again and vaults him right back into title contention.
Look for little wins. Forward momentum propels you forward, boosts your confidence, and reinvigorates your motivation.
Set goals. Blast them. Keep moving forward.

Lesson 26 - Be Willing to Walk Away if the Deal Isn’t Right

At this point, McGregor wants a big fight.
A rematch with Khabib, a contender’s fight against Gaethje, or a spectacle with either a Diaz trilogy or the BMF holder, Masvidal.
No other fights really make sense right now.
Maybe Conor will take a rematch with Floyd Mayweather or perhaps the talks about Pacquiao are true. Who knows.
Without the right match on the table, Conor decides to sit on the sideline until the right deal is presented.
Sometimes it is better to walk away and keep your stock high than to take a bad deal.

Bonus Lesson 1 - Take Care of Your Body & Mind

As an elite athlete, surely Conor McGregor is in great shape. Yet, it was a story about Lebron James that changed his entire outlook on training and mindset.
Lebron reportedly has a cadre of trainers, biomechanists, massage therapists, nutritionists, and personal chefs that have all contributed to his longevity in the sport. He does cryotherapy and spends time in the hyperbaric chamber. It was even reported that Lebron took ballet classes to help with his footwork.
He spends roughly $1.5 million a year on his body.
After McGregor read this, he knew he had to invest in his own body.
It seems he also worked with Tony Robbins, the ultimate life coach, to help with his mental state.
Work, Sleep, Family, Fitness, or Friends. Choose three.
The above is a running joke in the startup world. It is hard to juggle everything when you’re busy trying to change the world.
Physical fitness and mental health are extremely important. Keep in shape and you’ll be more productive, have more energy, and be able to think more clearly.

Bonus Lesson 2 - Develop Unbreakable Confidence

Conor McGregor exudes confidence. While all professional athletes share this trait, Conor’s confidence is off the charts even for professional athlete standards.
A lot of people mistake McGregor’s confidence for arrogance. Understandably so.
Yet, Conor believes what he is saying.
I’ve watched countless hours of pre-fight interviews of both Conor and other fighters. Conor McGregor has absolute certainty he is going to win.
Other fighters also believe they are going to win. However, you can see faint tells, twitches, micro expressions, or even vocal uncertainties in their responses. Subconsciously, somewhere deep down, the fighter has doubts. Doubts in themselves and doubts in their abilities.
This is not evident anywhere in Conor McGregor’s UFC career. This does put the Tony Robbins coaching into perspective. DId Conor need help getting his confidence back after he was defeated by Khabib? Tony Robbins would be the guy to get your mojo back!
I believe there are two main drivers to success in business:
  1. Believing in yourself
  2. Having something to prove
Confidence gets you on the road to success. If you believe in yourself, you’ll be willing to take the chance at greatness.
On the flip side of the coin, there is one group of people with low confidence that also have the ability to make it big - someone who is determined to prove their worth. These people are so determined to be successful their lack of confidence does not scare them away. Slowly, they become confident along the way.

Bonus Lesson 3 - Be Grateful

The one thing that surprised me in the research for this article was how grateful he is for everything he has accomplished.
Conor Mcgregor, an international sports legend with $100+ million dollars. A man that could have anything he wants. And he is truly grateful for his success.
No matter your success in life, this one is the key. No amount of money will ever make you happy. But gratitude - for your family, your friends, your lifestyle, for every little positive thing in your life that you take for granted, that is the real key to success and happiness.

2020.09.07 09:35 PrinceMarvelOz Castle/The Mentalist

I'm looking for shows similar to both Castle and The Mentalist I'm not just looking for detective shows, I want shows with similar characteristics and dynamic as Castle and The Mentalist.
There's the two main characters: the detective & consultant. Teresa Lisbon & Patrick Jane, Kate Beckett & Richard Castle. In both cases the detective starts out being annoyed by the consultant's behavior but they eventually fall in love.
Also there's the two secondary characters who are partners and/or best friends. Kimball Cho & Wayne Rigsby, Javier Esposito & Kevin Ryan. In the two examples given, they are detectives. In both cases, the senior partner has a history with special forces, and the junior partners end up having associations with a private firm. Rigsby co-owns and private investigation firm with his wife, and Ryan does extra work as private security.
Then there's the other member. Grace Van Pelt & Lanie Parish. They both work with their respective law firms. They also have a romance with one of the secondary characters.

2020.09.07 00:01 Jim_VanVacant 22/M ghosted after a good morning text

I'm dyslexic, so give me a break. Long story short, I recently became friendly with a coworker after finding out we go to the same University. She Gives me her Instagram, and we become friends, good friends. Through the weeks, we shared a lot of personal information about each other, and ower interactions became more romantic. We talked about past relationships, the things we like from our partners, what we don't like, etc. After two weeks of talking, I decided to ask her to dinner, where she informs me that she has a boyfriend that she's been dating for a year. Red flag, so I backed off romanticly, but every shift that we have together, we would flirt. I tried easing my way out of the situation, but every I tried, she would ask me if I was angry at her or upset at her for something. Also, I didn't stop flirting because she's very attractive and I like her personality and yadda yadda yadda. This brings us to last week where she invites me to go out with her and her boyfriend. I declined because I was already hanging out with a group of friends. At this point in our relationship, my attraction to her head begins to Wayne; I wasn't giving her the amount of attention I was when I assumed she was single. And she began to notice, I believe, in response to this, we'd spend more time outside of work than we ever have in the last six months of knowing each other. One night she asks me if I wanted to come and hang out with her. I Agreed because she's fun to hang out within our outings are always memorable. On this night, however, I get drunk. I started fighting with her again, asking sexual questions, and whether or not she would have gone to dinner with me. She told me that she would have if she wasn't in a relationship and that if I ask nicely, she will come back to my apartment. For clarification, I'm the only one drunk in this situation because I'm 22 and she is 20. And she's declined my offer to buy her something, so this entire night she's been drinking water, so she's not drunk. I don't acknowledge her hint for sex that night because I don't want to be a piece of shit. The night quickly ends after that, and she drives me back to where I park my motorcycle. On the way back, we continue to flirt, and she took the long way, which gave me the idea that she was hoping that I ask her to come back to my apartment. After dropping me off at my bike, i say goodnight and head back home. Also, for some clarification, We haven't hugged each other or touched each other at any point in our hangouts. And I wasn't really comfortable with spending a night with somebody who has a boyfriend and who I haven't gotten completely comfortable with. Like the idiot I am, I continue to flirt with her over text over the next few days. One point, she gets upset and basically ventes about how her boyfriend is moving away and how she is struggling with school. I tell her that if she wants to talk about it, I'm here, And I tempted to call her so that we she can come over. No reply, so let it waits till the next morning, and then she texts me good morning, and that's the last I heard of her. I haven't seen her in about a week because I've been selfly quarantining and I'm unable to work. I'm just trying to figure out what I did, other than flirting with her.

Child sex trafficking is a ‘human tragedy’ ignored through apathy, shame, lack of compassion
Chicago Tribune Column: Child sex trafficking is a ‘human tragedy’ ignored through apathy, shame, lack of compassion

Multimedia artist Katelyn Kopenhaver, right, with help from her brother Brent Kopenhaver, unfurls a banner reading \"[Jefferey] Epstein is the worst kind of virus,\" outside federal court where a judge held a bail hearing by video for Epstein's former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, Tuesday, July 14, 2020, in New York. (Bebeto Matthews/AP)
Today’s column is the second in a series on child sex trafficking in our region, how it is “hidden in plain sight,” and efforts to build a “Safe Village” for young victims.
Northwest Indiana is in the “armpit” of the child sex trafficking industry in the Midwest.
“Our geographical location, proximity to Chicago, and major interstates all play a role in this description,” said Mark Price, a board member of SAFE Coalition for Human Rights. “This is why a safe village for teenage victims is needed in our region.”
Since 2017, the Munster-based nonprofit organization has been working to construct a residential village development for these youth, a place that can offer them protection, counseling, rehabilitation, and hope for a normal life. The organization has raised only $115,000 of its $1.5 million goal to make this a reality. This setback, amid a devastating pandemic and a divisive presidential election, hasn’t curbed its members’ determination.
“It’s difficult to raise money and public awareness in this environment, but sex traffickers don’t care about a pandemic or politics or social awareness,” Price said. “We are doing our best to build a safe village that can be modeled in other communities across the country. We have to start somewhere. We are starting here.”
Specifically, it was to be located on a tract of land in Hobart, near County Line Orchard, until board members recently learned that neighbors there were against such a development.
“We believe the mentality is that they don’t want sex trafficked kids getting shelter and rehabilitation in their back yards,” Price said. “All we’re trying to do is give these kids half a chance at a normal life. We need region residents to be a part of the solution instead of turning a blind eye.”
Dr. Kalyani Gopal, the organization’s founder who treats victims as a clinical psychologist, said neighbors there refused to meet with group members to discuss the project.

“We need a pristine location where our children are welcomed, secure and safe. Every child deserves protection from harm,” she said. “It’s about finding such a property, securing it and then building the center and raising community support.”
It’s been daunting to raise community support for a repulsive social problem that most adults would prefer to ignore.
The U.S. Department of Justice defines human trafficking as “modern-day slavery,” a crime that involves compelling or coercing a person to provide labor or services, or to engage in commercial sex acts. This coercion can be subtle or overt, physical or psychological. Exploitation of a minor for commercial sex is indeed human trafficking, however it is coerced.
“Our office has investigated and prosecuted a broad and diverse range of human trafficking cases,” said Ryan Holmes, public information officer for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Indiana. “Most of the cases have been prosecuted by our Hammond division, but our South Bend and Fort Wayne offices have also actively prosecuted these types of cases.”
Holmes shared with me a list of cases I will dissect in a future column for this series. Those cases include: a Hammond man prostituting two minor females out of his apartment; a woman who trafficked three minors while using their drug addictions to coerce them into performing commercial sex acts; and a Latin Kings gang member who transported females for prostitution, using the proceeds to further gang activities.
“In the case of minors engaging in commercial sex acts, compulsion is presumed because minors cannot consent to prostitution,” Holmes said. “Federal law aims to criminalize anyone in the supply or demand chain who exploits human trafficking victims, including recruiters, pimps, drivers and even customers.”
Human trafficking affects every demographic; no community is immune. The most common characteristic of human trafficking victims is that they are vulnerable, he said.
“Confronting the problems of human trafficking requires a community effort,” said U.S. Attorney Thomas L. Kirsch II. “My office will continue to aggressively investigate and prosecute human trafficking cases. We will also stay intricately involved in community organizations and other coalitions that work to identify and provide assistance to victims of these crimes.”
One of these organizations is Gopal’s coalition, which also partners with the Continuum of Care Network of NWI, a local system helping people who are homeless.

“Human trafficking and homelessness have one crucial similarity - both are hidden in plain sight,” said Sharron Liggins, its executive director. “We must have more awareness brought to the public eye. Too many people do not know how it is so blatantly conducted, with the next potential victim being someone you may know. Our compassion should push for this cause. It’s a human tragedy.”
Price said it’s not only about social awareness, but social action.
“It’s about understanding how human trafficking plays in our daily life,” he said. “Even when this horrific subject is in the news, it seems to fade away from public consciousness. For instance, with the woman who was an alleged accomplice to Jeffrey Epstein.”
Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite, was arrested in July on charges relating to a sex trafficking operation allegedly housed by Epstein, a convicted sex offender who committed suicide while in jail. Their notorious crimes shined a fleeting light on a topic that is too often darkened by public apathy, including in our region where child sex trafficking numbers are woefully under-reported, Gopal said.
In 2019, only 157 cases were reported in Indiana through the National Human Trafficking Hotline, despite Gopal alone identifying and treating dozens of victims through the years.
“In our country, there are an estimated 100,000 to 300,000 child sex trafficking victims annually, but just over 2,000 residential treatment program beds available,” Gopal said.
Her organization’s proposed safe village would initially house up to 40 teenage victims. (For more info, call Gopal at 219-513-8508.) As one foster parent of a young sex trafficking victim told me, “We may not be able to save all these children, but we can save some of them. And it’s our moral duty to do so.”

2020.09.03 05:52 Castle9802 My Villain Team, The Hightower Society

At the turn of the 20th century New York City was a burgeoning metropolis. In this time of expansion, growth, and evolution the city wasn't the only thing that was changing, its inhabitants were as well. Organized crime was at its peak, criminal families were at war until Mr. Manhattan, a Transcendent and career criminal, came in and consolidated power. The Hightower Society he founded spanned three decades and even funded the construction of the city's infrastructure and development projects through the organizations various connections. He brought together some of the ruthless and ambitious criminals and transcendents. Ruling New York City's underworld with an iron grasp.
Most high profile members:
Theodore Jansen a.k.a. Mr. Manhattan - the son of wealthy Dutch immigrants he quickly grew bored of high society life, craving excitement and adrenaline he became a petty thief, until he caught the attention of a famous gangster who saw potential in him. Under his training he became more ruthless killing, stealing, and bribing his way to the top. However after an attempt on his life that ended in the death of his mentor his latent powers emerged allowing him to emit low levels of radiation. Allowing him to burn anyone he touches and induce sickness when the individual is exposed for too long to his harmful radiation. He wears lead lined gloves and a reflective lead hood to keep his powers contained. He is even said to have funded a portion of the Manhattan project.
Willa Mae Dawson a.k.a. Mink - a former club performer turned gun for hire. The left side of her face was horribly disfigured when an assailant through acid on her mid performance. When she could no longer get gigs performing at clubs, Mr. Manhattan recruited her within his organization. Taking the name mink after the furcoats she wears when carrying out hits. Her training and skill with firearms make her a deadly addition to the team.
Harold Townes a.k.a. De Stille - a crime boss from Montreal who sought to expand his territory into the American Northeast, but ultimately failed when opposed by Mr. Manhattan and his forces. Instead of killing his competition, Manhattan saw this as a business opportunity recruiting him into the fold intrigued by Townes ability to release scalding vapors from his hands. This veteran provides the team with much needed experience, especially for the younger, power hungry members.
Lacy Graves a.k.a Vesper - a former FBI agent who went undercover within Boston's organized crime scene, her mission was to intercept shipments of alcohol during prohibition, but was seduced by the corruption she was charged to stop. She eventually partnered with Clarke Robbins (Marquee) on a crime spree along the East Coast before being recruited to the Hightower Society by Mr. Manhattan. Her training in firearms, and knowledge of the criminal mind make her a perfect double agent for The Society to utilize against their enemies.
Wayne Jameson a.k.a. Sazerac - a hit man for a ruthless for a notorious New Orleans gang that would smuggle drugs, alcohol, and even people from Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. His signature is arson setting fire to the homes, businesses, and operations of his competitors and rivals. It was only natural when his pyrokinetic manifested, able to ignite objects outside of a 15ft radius. His raw is what caught the attention of Mr. Manhattan, and his addition to their ranks make him one of their most powerful members.
Clarke Robbins a.k.a. Marquee - a former silent movie star who made a name for himself in Hollywood. However he had a tendency to lash out when his costars usurped his time in the spotlight. His attitude on set is what led to be him ousted from Hollywood. His ability to emit blinding light from his palms would emerge shortly after the destruction of his career. This led him into a life of crime partnering with Vesper and the eventual recruitment into The Society.
As always feedback and input is welcome and encouraged.
Sidenote a number of my characters from this period have names related to alcohol. Including the main heroes that have set out to stop The Hightower Society, Jinn and Tonic.

2020.09.03 04:38 oozingmachismo Why are some serial killers so much more famous than others? What are the factors that affect this infamy?

If there was a serial killer "pantheon", I would put Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Richard Ramirez and David Berkowitz in it. I figure that these are household names that are well-known enough for self-explanatory pop culture references that people with no interest in true crime would understand.
Meanwhile, there are numerous other serial killers that have committed equally heinous crimes but are relatively unknown outside the circles of true crime buffs. Why? I'll list some factors that I think are relevant, and I'd love to hear any others that I might have missed. I'll give some examples of other killers that fit the bill, so to speak:
-unusual childhood: Cary Stayner, Edmund Kemper
-memorable physical appearance, eg. handsome, frightening, etc: Kemper, Richard Chase
-bodycount of victims: Gary Ridgway, Robert Pickton, Samuel Little
-unique murder method: Robert Hansen, Israel Keyes, Charles Albright (Eyeball Killer)
-exceptional cruelty: Robert Berdella, Deal Corll, Randy Kraft
-taunting of police or media: Zodiac Killer, David Berkowitz, Keith Jesperson (Happy Face Killer)
-partners in crime: William Bonin, Toolbox Killers, Hillside Stranglers, Chicago Rippers
-murders synonymous with a specific location, city, etc.: Wayne Williams, Gary Ridgway, Cary Stayner, James Ritchie (Midnight Sun Killer)
-video footage of murders or confession: Russell Williams, Maury Travis, Leonard Lake & Charles Ng, Kenneth Bianchi
-reaction to a cold case being finally solved: Joe DeAngelo, Lonnie Franklin
I'm sure there are other factors that I've missed, or maybe the ones I've written above are unclear or incomplete. I'd also love to know if there are any good books that specifically examine how some killers are made more infamous than others.

The token purchase from TIDAL, a high-fidelity entertainment streaming service with over 3 million users globally, is the result of a partnership agreement to give artists listed on that service exclusive access to stream their content in the Sensorium Galaxy platform. “Our relationship with Sensorium provides TIDAL with the opportunity to gain exclusive rights for its stellar artist roster to have their shows and music broadcast exclusively within Sensorium’s themed virtual entertainment worlds,” says TIDAL COO Lior Tibon.
Aside from TIDAL artists, Sensorium Galaxy works in close collaboration with Yann Pissenem, the mastermind behind Ushuaïa Ibiza and Hï Ibiza — two of the hottest nightlife hubs in the world. Dance superstar Sergei Polunin is also a supporter of Sensorium Galaxy, and his jaw-dropping performances are being recreated in virtual reality. The platform is scheduled for release in H1 2021.
“The Sensorium Galaxy is a next-generation platform for entertainment consumption which will elevate the connection fans have with their favorite artists and bring the artist’s vision to life in a new and exciting way,” Mr. Tibon explained in a written statement.
Sensorium Corporation, the company that oversees the technological and business development of Sensorium Galaxy, was founded by Forbes-listed billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov in 2018. To date, the company has attracted over $100 million in private investments.
Sensorium sets itself the ambitious goal of taking user communications to the next level and ensuring their digital evolution in the new environment. The technological basis of the project is a combination of VR and AI technologies. “Sensorium Galaxy avatars constantly learn from users, learn about their actions and preferences, and can continue to exist autonomously, performing actions that match user behavior patterns,” explains Brian Keane, director of communications at Sensorium. “AI is a vital component of Sensorium Galaxy as it brings users closer to digital immortality – something that seemed impossible until recently,” he adds.
As is the case with most modern games and VR platforms, all transactions on Sensorium Galaxy are carried out using its own in-platform currency: SENSO token. The company plans to attract more than 1.8 million users by 2022, who will pay for premium accounts, avatar customization items, and event tickets exclusively with SENSO tokens.
The token is now available on the largest international exchanges Bittrex, KuCoin, Bitcoin.com, and HitBTC.
