2020.09.30 13:13 User18940505 An exhaustive list of intriguing and unsolved disappearances

So I’m back!
I just finished editing my previous post, adding those which you guys suggested and removing those that seem to have been solved. This will most likely be the case here, as my research is not wholly up to date.
This is a bit of a broader topic, since a disappearance does not necessarily allude to a crime. As far as I am aware, the majority of these cases have suspicious circumstances.
Hope you find this interesting! Like the previous post, a lot of these cases are in chronological order, but not all. They are accurately categorised into their respective decades, however.

submitted by User18940505 to UnresolvedMysteries [link] [comments]

2020.09.06 21:27 AHSismypassion Picking one season in where each actor "shined" the most.

My opinion:
Jessica Lange - Freak Show (Hard one to pick actually but you could tell she loved the role of Elsa Mars and gave her all into it)
Evan Peters - Cult (Kai Anderson literally is his peak to date, Emmy and Golden Globe worthy)
Sarah Paulson - Asylum (While Sarah is usually great in every season it‘s that perfectly written role that‘s just signature AHS)
Taissa Farmiga - Murder House (She just can play depressed teenage girl so well. Zoë & Co. can hardly compete)
Frances Conroy - Coven (Although iconically reprised in Apocalypse her lines in Coven stay legendary)
Lily Rabe - Asylum (Without Lily Asylum would be less entertaining. She truly delivers in bad roles)
Denis O‘Hare - Hotel (I mean, clearly. Making Hotel a feast for the eyes)
Cheyenne Jackson - Roanoke (While his role was very limited he was totally believable as asshole producer)
Kathy Bates - Roanoke (She‘s equally good in her evil roles, but if I had to pick it would be the Butcher AKA Agnes - that‘s where she fully went insane)
Angela Bassett - Coven (Since Coven her roles have been samey-same though)
Finn Wittrock - Freak Show (And that hands down)
Emma Roberts - 1984 (For the first time I have seen that she can play something else other than a stuck up bitch)
Billie Lourd - Apocalypse (I usually find her bland but there was this significant bathtub scene where her eyes were all bloody and she was screaming - it was terrific)
Billy Eichner - Cult (Sadly that‘s where the fun ended because his roles after that were recycled)
Leslie Grossman - Cult (Just a similar case as Billy. Her roles after Cult didn‘t flash me)
Adina Porter - Roanoke (Adina literally made that season. Although her appearance in Cult is a close 2nd)
Wes Bentley - Hotel (You can say what you want about John Lowe but he‘s one of the reasons why I love Hotel)
Dylan McDermott - Asylum (Why he wasn‘t casted for another role in so long after Johnny Morgan is beyond me. I love when he plays bad)
Leslie Jordan - Roanoke (Cricket Marlowe is literally iconic. That wig alone)
Mare Winningham - Hotel (No contest at all. Perhaps because that‘s the season where she plays a larger role)
John Carroll-Lynch - Freak Show (No John = no Twisty = no mascot for AHS. Although he delivered in 1984 just as much)
Gabourey Sidibe - Coven (Queenie literally but neither in Hotel nor in Apocalypse she was that iconic)
Jamie Brewer - Murder House (It‘s that special first appearance of Jamie that was so striking)
Naomi Grossman - Freak Show (Pepper literally. It‘s the Orphans episode where Naomi gave a 100%)
Cody Fern - Apocalypse (I felt genuinely scared throughout the whole season)
Lady Gaga - Hotel (Because I feel her performance in Roanoke was underwhelming due to an amount of stress she had)
Zachary Quinto - Asylum (It‘s the creepy villains he can play the best)
Matt Bomer - Hotel (His role as Andy in Freak Show was way too small to compare)
Chloë Sevigny - Asylum (Chloë gave a whole different experience in Asylum than in Hotel and that role suited her much better)

2020.09.05 11:49 ianvideo 5th September 2020 - US Open Day 5 - Brits booted, Shapo’s escape, and the curious case of Adrian Mannarino

Show Notes

We begin by discussing Felix Auger-Aliassime's victory over Andy Murray in yesterday's night session. How much was the one-sided result down to Auger-Aliassime's brilliance and how much was it because of Murray's depleted physical condition? Moving on to Friday's action, there's chat about disappointing defeats for Cameron Norrie and Dan Evans, Naomi Osaka's stressful victory over Marta Kostyuk, Denis Shapovalov's escape against Taylor Fritz, and the bizarre delay to Adrian Mannarino vs Alexander Zverev. We also revisit the opposite of "on the boat" and look ahead to tomorrow's schedule, highlighted by Serena Williams vs Sloane Stephens.

2020.08.29 11:42 ianvideo 28th August 2020 - Tennis Re-Lived: Arthur Ashe

Show Notes

Following on from our most recent edition of Tennis Re-Lived on the life of Althea Gibson, in this episode we turn our attention to Arthur Ashe.
We cover his formative years growing up in Virginia under the Jim Crow laws, his development as an amateur tennis player while at college, his Grand Slam titles, his fights for civil rights and social justice, his passing from AIDS, and his enduring legacy.
Along the way, James Blake reveals how he indirectly credits Ashe with getting him into tennis, Leslie Allen talks about what it was like at Dr Johnson’s training facility for African-American players, Steve Flink analyses Ashe’s 1968 US Open victory and what made him so exciting to watch, Richard Evans discusses Ashe’s tactical masterclass against Jimmy Connors in the 1975 Wimbledon final , John McEnroe describes his special relationship with Ashe, Mary Carillo tells some of her favourite stories involving Arthur to explain what he was like, and Chanda Rubin reflects on his impact in tennis.
After looking closely at Ashe’s activism, including how he took on the issue of apartheid and the way he was criticised in some quarters for not being militant enough, we also reflect on Naomi Osaka’s decision not to play her match on Thursday at the Western & Southern Open, a move which led to tennis taking a stand against racial inequality by suspending play for a day. In what way was Osaka acting in the spirit of Ashe? And has the tide turned enough for athletes to now be rewarded for speaking out?

I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
Wachtmeister, Eric: Swedish Internet entrepreneur. He was the founder of the now defunct social media website, A Small World. The Weinstein Company, Robert Pittman, and Alexander von Furstenberg were all heavy investors and are all listed in Epstein’s black book (check out previous threads for further information). Early in his career, Wachtmeister was an investment banker who worked for Rothschild & Co. and Lehman Brothers. His father was Count Wilhelm Wachtmeister, a Swedish diplomat, ambassador to the United States, and close friend of George H.W. Bush.
Wagner, David: Not enough info.
Wainwright, Rupert: British movie director and producer.
Waksal, Sam: Pharmaceutical entrepreneur and CEO. Despite the nerdy sounding job description, Waksal hobnobs with celebrities. He dated Martha Stewart’s daughter, is a friend of Ronald Perelman’s ex-wife, and counts Mick Jagger among his friends (https://www.nytimes.com/2002/01/24/business/for-imclone-drug-entrepreneur-a-past-of-celebrity-and-notoriety.html). In 2002 and 2003, Waksal pleaded guilty to securities fraud, bank fraud, obstruction of justice, perjury, conspiracy, and wire fraud. He was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2003. He was released in 2009.
Wallace, Mike: Television journalist best known for his role as lead correspondent on the news program 60 Minutes. Longtime 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager, was forced to step down from his position after Ronan Farrow’s article in The New Yorker that mentioned Fager’s sexual misconduct (https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/as-leslie-moonves-negotiates-his-exit-from-cbs-women-raise-new-assault-and-harassment-claims) towards Sarah Johansen, an intern at the time (now a producer) who said that the atmosphere of 60 Minutes was like that of a “boy’s club.” Epstein hosted a reception for Wallace at his NYC mansion back in 1997 (https://www.thedailybeast.com/jeffrey-epstein-had-his-own-lodge-at-interlochens-prestigious-arts-camp-for-kids-in-michigan). Wallace can be seen in this photo (date uncertain, but must have been 1991 or earlier) with Robert Maxwell (Ghislaine’s father) and Donald Trump (https://twitter.com/rudyhavenstein/status/1162119147746029568).
Walters, Barbara: Famous television personality/broadcast journalist known for 20/20, The View, and berating Corey Feldman for trying to “damage an entire industry” when he came out against pedophilia in Hollywood (https://pagesix.com/2017/10/18/barbara-walters-faces-backlash-after-corey-feldman-clip-resurfaces/). Walters goes way back with Ghislaine and her family, as she swam around the same social circles as Ghislaine’s father, Robert Maxwell (https://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/this-was-then-malcolm-forbes-70th-birthday-part-i/). Here is a picture from Steve Forbes’s 70th birthday party (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/robert-maxwell-barbara-walters-and-merv-adelson-news-photo/81525793) that shows Barbara walking just behind Robert Maxwell. Barbara is pictured here (https://pagesix.com/2020/07/02/pre-arrest-ghislaine-maxwell-with-her-famous-friends/#7) with Ghislaine and some others (7th picture down). We can only wish her the most agonizing of deaths.
Ward, Kevin: A 34-year veteran of the NYPD who was eventually promoted to Borough Commander. Currently the Vice President of Security and Operations for Bryant Park Corporation. Received a Master’s Degree from Harvard, which is extremely rare for a law enforcement official. It’s odd that Epstein would have three different telephone numbers for such a decorated member of law enforcement. Interesting.
Warner, Ozzie: No info found.
Warnford-Davis, Ms Mandy: The former sister-in-law of Ghislaine’s brother, Kevin. Kevin and his wife, Pandora, divorced after more than 20 years of marriage. Mandy is Pandora’s sister. She works as a lawyer in London.
Wasserman, Casey & Laura: Casey is an entertainment and sports agent executive. Grandson of Hollywood mogul and mafia-linked Lee Wasserman. Laura Zifren is Casey’s wife. She is a movie music supervisor. Casey and Laura both appear on Epstein’s “Lolita Express” flight log (https://archive.org/stream/EpsteinFlightLogsLolitaExpress/Jeffrey-Epstein-Flight-Logs-in-PDF-format_djvu.txt) during the infamous Africa trip which featured the likes of Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, and Chris Tucker. Casey donates a lot of time and money to the Clinton Foundation and considers Bill Clinton to be a close friend and his philanthropic “mentor” (https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/bill-clinton-casey-wasserman-reveal-590405). The Wassermans have donated between $10 and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation (https://www.clintonfoundation.org/contributors?category=%2410%2C000%2C001+to+%2425%2C000%2C000). The Wassermans have set up a charity called The Wasserman Foundation through which they donate money to a number of different causes, including several children’s groups (http://www.wassermanfoundation.org/giving/).
Wassong, David: Managing Director for Soros (yes, that Soros) Fund Management who has worked for Soros for over 20 years (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-10-01/soros-spins-out-private-equity-team-pledging-up-to-2-billion). Here’s a lovely picture (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/david-wassong-managing-director-of-soros-fund-management-news-photo/129267700?adppopup=true) of Wassong with Ghislaine Maxwell from 2011. There’s nothing weird about it except for Ghislaine’s eye-catching earrings, which bare a striking resemblance to pedophile symbolism (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3560069/The-symbols-pedophiles-use-signal-sordid-sexual-preferences-social-media.html). David’s father, Dan, was a chronic sexual harasser of his secretaries (https://www.nytimes.com/1995/08/05/nyregion/a-sexual-harasser-his-friends-don-t-recognize-the-description.html). Perhaps sexual deviancy runs in the family.
Wastnage, Lucy: Wife of David Tang. Already listed earlier under ‘Tang, Mr David and Lucy Wastnag.’ Copy and pasted from my ‘T-V’ thread… David was a Hong Kong businessman who founded the Shanghai Tang fashion chain and several restaurants that attract the elite. Tang was a philanthropist who was involved in several charities, including Youth Outreach (YO), a charitable organization started in Hong Kong by Reverend Peter Newberry. This charity’s goal was to help at-risk youths (http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/hkedition/2017-09/15/content_32018378.htm). Tang was considered one of the most well-connected people in London. He and his wife, Lucy, counted Prince Andrew, Naomi Campbell, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York (Prince Andrew’s ex-wife), Kevin Spacey, the Duke of Marlborough, and Mick Jagger among their friends (https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/lucy-tang-on-top-the-highs-and-lows-of-a-party-girl-6540808.html). Tang vehemently defended Prince Andrew in 2011 when his relationship with Epstein was made public (https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/theyve-been-tang-oed-sir-david-tang-sets-the-record-straight-6383974.html). Two years later, Ghislaine celebrated her 51st birthday at China Tang, David’s restaurant at the Dorchester Hotel. Despite the backlash Prince Andrew received for counting Epstein among his friends, he attended Ghislaine’s birthday, along with former Labour minister Shaun Woodward and wife Camilla, the Earl and Countess of Derby, Dorrit Moussaieff, the diamond heiress/wife of the president of Iceland, Tamara Beckwith, and John Eliasch, multi-millionaire boss of sports firm Head. Every single one of those people appear in Epstein’s contacts. Epstein had 16 phone numbers, two email addresses, and three street addresses listed under David and Lucy’s names. David Tang died in 2017.
Waterman, Felicity: Model and actress who was a client of Elite Modeling Agency, along with Epstein/Maxwell pals Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum and many other famous models.
Watson, Victoria: Secretary at De Cadenet Motor Racing Limited (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/officers/9iGn2N_d0fDUZjAwXR1KFgM4qLU/appointments), a company owned by former race car driver Alain de Cadenet, who was listed earlier in Epstein’s black book.
Webb, Veronica: Supermodel. Former Victoria’s Secret (Les Wexner) model.
Weidenfeld, Lord: Founder of Weidenfeld and Nicolson publishing company. Weidenfeld (1919-2016) was a tremendous supporter of Israel and Oxford University. Weidenfeld was close friends with the Rothschilds. For more info on Weidenfeld’s deep-rooted connection with the Rothschilds and Israel, check out this wonderful Youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=368&v=N-0ZTc42PnU&feature=emb_logo). It’s very well-researched and connects all the dots. Other high-ranking friends of Weidenfeld included German Chancellor Angela Merkel and former U.S. Secretary of State (and should-be war criminal) Henry Kissinger.
Weinberg, Jason: Top Hollywood talent manager who represents some of the biggest names in movies and television. Weinberg held his 50th birthday at a restaurant in Easthampton, NY (https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/rambling-reporteharvey-weinstein-katie-holmes-more-flock-east-hamptons-palm-restaurant-jason-weinb). Attendees included Harvey Weinstein and actress Uma Thurman, the ex-fiance of ARK Academy founder and possible pedophile and child trafficker, Arpad Busson. Weinberg has been pictured with Peggy Siegal, the publicist who helped Epstein get into elite parties after he was convicted of procuring an underage girl for prostitution. They likely know each other because they were both trained by legendary Hollywood publicist Bobby Zarem.
Weinstein, Bob: Bob is Harvey Weinstein’s brother and a top movie producer and Hollywood executive. Bob has denied any knowledge of his brother’s seemingly endless sexual harassment charges and has publicly rebuked Harvey. Bob has been accused of harassment by Amanda Segel, a female showrunner (https://variety.com/2017/tv/news/bob-weinstein-sexual-harassment-1202592165/).
Weintraub, Harriet: Founder of public relations firm HWPR (http://hwpr.com/about-us/). Was once in business with Epstein enabler Peggy Siegal (http://orbmagazine.com/the-orbitepeggy-siegal-is-no-longer-the-owner-of-the-peggy-siegal-company/).
Westheimer, Ruth Dr: Better known as Dr. Ruth, the popular sex therapist and TV personality.
Weymouth, Mrs Lally: Senior associate editor of The Washington Post. Eldest child of Katherine Graham, the publisher who ran her family’s newspaper, The Washington Post, from 1963-1991. Lally is best known for throwing huge bipartisan parties at her house in the Hamptons. This article (https://nypost.com/2017/07/10/why-ordinary-americans-hold-politicians-and-media-in-contempt-all-in-one-hamptons-party/) does a great job of detailing who goes to these parties (ex: Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner partying with George Soros, Soros partying with David Koch, etc) and the fact that behind closed doors, the same people who publicly insult each other from both sides of the aisle, are actually friends and just laughing at us for believing their theatrics. AGAIN, THE WHOLE IDEA OF PARTISANSHIP IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT. STOP ALIGNING WITH ONE SIDE. IT’S US VS. THEM. THAT’S IT.
White, Somers: Former model and advertising executive. Married to Jonathan Farkas, heir to the Alexander’s department stores fortune. Named to the Commission on Presidential Scholars by Donald Trump in 2019. Pictured here (https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/amy-fine-collins-suzanne-johnson-ghislaine-maxwell-somers-news-photo/1169681593?adppopup=true) with Ghislaine Maxwell.
White, Victoria: Former wife of Lord Gordon White, Texas businessman Tom O’Gara, and famed Hollywood producer Robert Evans.
White, Michael: Likely the theatemovie producer or the British journalist who was the associate editor of The Guardian until 2016 and a regular commentator on BBC. Could be either one.
White O’Gara, Victoria: See Victoria White above.
Whitworth, Alan & Wendy: Wendy Whitworth is a managing editor with ties to Ghislaine and her family. She was managing editor of Remembering for the Future: The Holocaust in An Age of Genocide, an assortment of Holocaust-centered articles, which was released in 2001. Ghislaine Maxwell’s mother, Elisabeth, was the editor-in-chief of the publication. Ghislaine and her sisters, Isabel and Christine, are listed as financial sponsors and committee coordinator (https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/bfm%3A978-1-349-66019-3%2F1.pdf). The honorary president of the publication is Elie Wiesel, the famous authoHolocaust survivor who also appears in Epstein’s book and was also accused of sexual harassment. I believe her husband Alan is an economic adviser, but I’m not entirely sure.
Wiatt, Jim: Former CEO at William Morris, a major talent agency.
Wienberg, Anouska & Mark: Anouska is a hotelier and interior designer. Her husband, Mark, is a financier who co-founded J. Rothschild Assurance, which later became St. James’s Place Wealth Management, along with Jacob Rothschild (https://www.gettyimages.com/photos/lord-weinberg?mediatype=photography&phrase=lord%20weinberg&sort=best). Mark was the honorary treasurer of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and still had a role as one of the Vice Presidents as of 2012 (https://www.nspcc.org.uk/globalassets/documents/annual-reports/nspcc-annual-report-2012.pdf), making this the 12 billionth connection between known pedophile and child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and the NSPCC.
Wiesel Dr Eli and Marion: Wiesel was a famous author, Holocaust survivor, and Nobel Peace Prize winner, but he also supposedly sexually harassed a teenager at a charity event (https://www.newsweek.com/elie-wiesel-me-too-account-690891). Wiesel had longstanding ties to the Maxwell family due to their mutual interest in writing about the Holocaust (https://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/09/business/media/elisabeth-maxwell-widow-who-reinvented-herself-as-holocaust-expert-dies-at-92.html), (https://link.springer.com/content/pdf/bfm%3A978-1-349-66019-3%2F1.pdf). Marion is also a Holocaust survivor and was Elie’s wife.
Wigram Lionel and Lydia: Lionel is a producer who has worked on the Harry Potter films and several Guy Ritchie movies. Lydie is his wife.
Wigram, Lionel: See above.
Williams Alexandra & Nick: Alexandra is the daughter of Michael Heseltine, who was previously listed in Epstein’s ‘black book.’ Michael Heseltine is a British businessman and politician who served in various roles in government for British PMs Margaret Thatcher and John Major. Heseltine was a friend of Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine’s father. Heseltine invested in Conservative Parliament member Harvey Proctor’s business after Proctor was forced to resign after it was revealed he had sexual relationships with and took nude pictures of male prostitutes aged 17-21 at his home (source: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/members-interests-top-tories-lose-on-proctors-shop-the-retailer-1445666.html). At the time, it was illegal to have same-sex relations with prostiutes under the age of 21. Her siblings, Annabel and Rupert, were listed in Epstein’s book as well. Check out the G-I thread for more info on them. Nick is her husband and the owner of Holloway’s auctioneers.
Williams-Ellis, David & Serena: David is a world-renowned British sculptor. His ex-wife, Serena, is an interior designer.
Willis, Rebecca: Not sure. Could be a climate change/environmental researcher in the UK.
Wilmot-Sitwell, Alex & Fi: Alex is a banker who was CEO of UBS Investment Bank and headed Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s businesses across Europe until 2018. Bank of America Merrill Lynch, incidentally, was the “largest corporate sponsor” for the super shady ARK Academy (https://arkacademy.org/node/51721) under Wilmot-Sitwell. ARK Academy, founded by Arpad Busson (listed in Epstein’s book - read more on him here: https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cl34ju/arpad_busson_billionaire_businessman_or_possible/), could very well be a system of schools used for child abuse and child trafficking. Caroline Fiona Marr is Alex’s ex-wife.
Wilson, Carter: Barely any info found. Her name is Carter Wilson Hailey. This was her mother (https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/harrisonburg-va/margaret-wilson-6505891). Despite the family names/history, I couldn’t find anything on who Carter Wilson actually is.
Windisch Grazot, Manfred: The Windisch-Graetz family comes from a high nobility bloodline.

Windsor-Taylor, Tim & Helen: Helen is a member of the Royal Family. Her father is Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, who is the first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II. Helen is a patron of CLIC Sargent, a children’s cancer charity (https://web.archive.org/web/20110723085754/http://www.clicsargent.org.uk/Aboutus/Mediacentre/Latestnews/Midsummerpartyraises400000). Her husband, Tim, is an art dealer.
Winn, Steve: Wynn is a billionaire Las Vegas hotel tycoon. Prince Harry was a guest of Wynn’s at his Encore resort. Served as the finance chair of the Republican National Committee from 2017-2018, but had to resign from that post and his position as CEO of Wynn Resorts due to dozens of allegations of sexual misconduct (https://www.newsweek.com/steve-wynn-claims-he-cant-punished-sexual-harassment-claims-because-he-no-longer-company-1472164) by his employees. Wynn and his wife (listed earlier in Epstein’s black book under ‘Hissom, Andrea’) are close friends of Donald and Melania Trump (source: https://www.pressreader.com/uk/scottish-daily-mail/20120901/281904475353844).

Here’s are some pictures from that party (https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/prince-andrew-hong-kong-fanancier-andy-wong-and-his-wife-news-photo/104171074 ; https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/sir-dai-llewelyn-amd-masked-girl-hong-kong-fanancier-andy-news-photo/104170961 ; https://www.shutterstock.com/editorial/image-editorial/chinese-new-year-party-hosted-by-andy-wong-and-wife-patti-at-the-reform-club-london-britain-26-jan-2002-375881ah). Here is a link with more pictures (https://www.rexfeatures.com/set/375881) from the party.

Rantzen also had an affair with Nicolas Fairbairn, the Scottish politician who was posthumously accused of chronic child abuse and has been linked to Elm Guest House, where politicans (allegedly) had sex with drugged up children (https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/13174992.former-judges-shock-over-qc-paedophile-ring-allegations/).

He was suspended from Groucho, a private members club in London, when he admitted to selling and using cocaine there (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1361435/White-powder-scare-at-the-Groucho.html). This flickr page reveals the connection between Toby Young’s New Schools Network and possible pedophile/child trafficker Arpad Busson’s ARK Academy schools (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/49407330397).

2020.08.03 16:30 SiphenPrax WWE Megathread: August 3-7

NOTE: I want to address the elephant in the room here: Why I never posted the WWE Megathread last week. The reason why I never did was because I was starting a new full-time job last week and I was burnt out the whole week from making any kind of threads (outside of the AEW Megathread which is very easy to make and post). It was a very hard week last week for me and I wasn't normally on Reddit like I usually am. Going forward, I will post these WWE Megathreads either on Sunday or Monday morning (barring when a PPV happens). I apologize for any inconveniences over the past week.
The road to Summerslam 2020 has kicked off! Here's what you need to know:
On RAW, Sasha Banks defeated Asuka to win the RAW Women's Championship for the fifth time in her career, when Asuka was distracted by Bayley attacking Kairi Sane backstage and left the ring to go help out her friend, giving Sasha the win. Meanwhile, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler got into a scuffle while Nia was cutting a promo in the ring. It later led to a match which was thrown out when both of them went at it and it led to referees breaking everything up.
On NXT, Io Shirai and Tegan Nox defeated Candice LeRae and Dakota Kai in a tag-team match when Io pinned Candice with a moonsault. After the match, Dakota demanded to be the number one contender to the NXT Women's Championship, but Rhea Ripley confronted her to bring it up with William Regal. Meanwhile, Mercedes Martinez defeated Shotzi Blackheart in a singles match.
Finally, on Smackdown, Bayley retained her Smackdown Women's Championship against Nikki Cross in the main event. Afterward, Alexa Bliss tried to comfort Nikki after her loss, but Nikki pushed her to the ground, left the ring, and then the Fiend attacked Alexa (no, I'm not making that part up). Meanwhile, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville returned to Smackdown where they got into a fight backstage while Mandy was getting her makeup ready for her date with Otis Dozivic. Finally, Naomi defeated Lacey Evans in a singles match.
The previous megathread can be found [here]

2020.07.05 20:18 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters D-F in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters D-F of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
d’abo, Henri & Tatiana: John Henry Erland d’Abo is the grandson of the 9th Duke of Rutland (more info on what these titles all mean can be found here: https://www.debretts.com/expertise/essential-guide-to-the-peerage/what-is-the-peerage/). Tatjana is his wife. Henry is the chairman of Wilton Payments Ltd, a private company that helps with financial intermediation. He and Christopher O’Neill are the primary shareholders of the company. O’Neill is Tatjana’s half-brother, a British-American financier, and husband to Princess Madeleine, Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland, a daughter of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.
d’abo, Mrs. Jennifer: British entrepreneur who passed away in 2003. d’Abo was once married to Peter Cadbury from the family of the famous chocolate company. Peter did not work for the company, but he and Jennifer d’Abo had a son together. Their son, Joel Cadbury, became owner of the Groucho Club, a watering hole often frequented by famous people. Three years after Cadbury sold the club, their website became the center of a child pornography scandal (link to story: https://www.sott.net/article/242698-Groucho-Clubs-website-forum-hit-by-child-pornography-scandal)
D’Alessie, Carman: This name turned up no results, however, we can safely assume that this is actually Carmen D’Alessio, the international nightlife guru who helped spawn Studio 54 and other famous clubs. She is a party legend with countless celebrity ties.
d’Arenberg, Prince Pierre: Family lineage can be traced back 1000 years. European royalty. Extremely wealthy not because of his ties to nobility, but because his mother, Margaret Bedford, was an heiress to Standard Oil (Exxon).
d’Uzes, Jacques De crussol: The 17th Duke of Uzes. Not much else found on him. Margaret Bedford married into his family shortly after her divorce with Prince Charles Auguste Armand d’Arenberg, father of Prince Pierre d’Arenberg.
Dabbagh, Amr A.: A wealthy businessman/investor from Saudi Arabia. Dabbagh recently faced corruption charges but settled with the Saudi Arabian government. Has ties all around the world, as he is a member of and/or serves/served on the boards of the World Economic Forum, London Business School, Cleveland Clinic, Jeddah Economic Forum, Harvard Institute for Social and Economic Policy in the Middle East, etc.
Dahl, Sophie: ‘90s-’00s model-turned-author and maternal granddaughter of famous author Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, etc.) Dahl has been seen in photos with Ghislaine Maxwell.

Dartmouth, William: The 10th Earl of Dartmouth. Member of the European Parliament from 2009-2019. Became a stepbrother of Princess Diana when his mother embarked on a 2nd marriage with Diana’s father, John Spencer.

Davies, David & Linda: Sir David Davies is a wealthy banker and businessman with deep connections. A family friend introduced him to David Rockefeller back in the ‘60s, which helped him get his start. Linda, daughter of a Chinese-Malaysian tycoon, is his second wife. They were married for over 20 years but are now divorced.
Davis, Michael: A current partner at N3 Media, Davis has had many jobs. He started out working at CAA, one of the top agencies in the world. Check out this list of celebrities and athletes that they represent (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Creative_Artists_Agency_clients). Davis then went on to produce movies and TV shows before transitioning to digital media.
Day, Nick and Heather: Not much to be found on these two. There are several articles that speak of their ranch in Kenya. Apparently, it is a fairly popular spot where people stay to get some rest and solitude.
de Andrade, Marcelo: An international banker (not the serial killer) who lives within one mile of Epstein’s mansion in NYC. de Andrade was married to Lisa Bjornson, a successful banker and higher-up at J.P. Morgan Securities back in the ‘90s.

De Cadenet, Alen: Alain de Cadenet is one of Epstein’s many Formula One contacts. Someone here probably knows more about de Cadenet, but he used to be a racecar driver and now works for ESPN and the Speed Channel as a host.
de Clermont-Tonnerre, Hermine: A French princess who used to have a penchant for partying. The only daughter of Charles Henri, 11th Duke of Clermont-Tonnerre, Hermine was one of 500 guests invited to Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother’s 100th birthday back in 2000. Hermine got in a motorcycle crash a month ago that put her in a coma.
De Georgiou, Anouska: A former British Playboy model who claims that Epstein groomed and raped her as a teenager when she met him in the 1990s. Her experience with Epstein is detailed in this article (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9974171/anouska-de-georgiou-jeffrey-epstein-rape-claims-nbc-playboy/). She speaks about how Epstein was able to lure her into the life as a young girl.
De Soto, Fernando: Very difficult to pinpoint. Best guess is that this is the Head of Real Estate at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in Madrid, Spain. I could be wrong, but this is the one that made the most sense.
Dedieu, Jean & Paulette: Nothing found.
Del Bono, Luca: Co-founder of Quintessentially Group, a hospitality group that specializes in leisure, travel, and tourism.
Dell, Adam: Brother of Michael Dell (Founder of Dell Technologies and 27th ranked richest person in the world in Forbes’s BS rankings that discount the elite families). Adam is a venture capitalist who has a baby with Padma Lakshmi.

Dickenson, Debbie: Supermodel and actress. Sister of the more famous Janice Dickinson.
Dickinson, Janice: One of the most successful models of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Dickinson has been occasionally labeled as the first ever supermodel. Opened her own modeling agency in 2005. Ironically, she accused Bill Cosby of raping her back in 1982 and wrote about it in her memoir. When called to the stand during Cosby’s trial, Cosby’s lawyer pointed out the differences between Dickinson’s testimony and her account of the incident in her memoir.

Summary of the article: Dubin was the first one accused by Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre. Rinaldo Rizzo, Dubin’s chef, testified that sexual activities occurred between Dubin and a 15-year-old girl, which led to him and his wife quitting as personal chefs of the Dubins. Dubin’s wife, Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin, dated Epstein for a long time before she married Dubin. The couple was so close with Epstein that even after Epstein was convicted in 2008 and officially a registered sex offender, they invited him to Thanksgiving dinner and wrote a letter to his probation officer that they trusted him around their children, who were all minors at the time. Multiple sources say Epstein was actually their children’s Godfather, but a spokesman for the couple denies it. Glen Dubin and Epstein helped each other with their business ties, as well. Dubin also had other ties with Epstein (personal friends with Les Wexner and others). Dubin and his wife are definitely major players in the Epstein saga.

Duesing claims Epstein tried to hire him to work on Epstein’s home on Epstein’s private island back in 2002, but Duesing declined because he didn’t like Epstein. Says he doesn’t even know how Epstein got his number in the first place. Perhaps it was Duesing’s ties with the royal family. He tells stories of getting the Queen Mother drunk, being close with Lord and Lady Lloyd, working on the home of Mohamed Al-Fayed, father of Dodi, Princess Diana’s boyfriend who died in the car crash with her.

Witchcraft, Sorcery, and Magic

Pamela A. Moro
Witchcraft, sorcery, and magic relate to encounters with and attempts to control the supernatural. Magic encompasses beliefs and behaviors in which the relationship between an act and its effect involves analogy or a mystical connection.
As used by anthropologists, the term “witch” identifies someone alleged to practice socially prohibited forms of magic, while “sorcerer” refers to someone who intentionally takes on the role of magical practitioner, often with the intent to harm.
Anthropological studies of magic, witchcraft, and sorcery around the world date to the mid‐nineteenth century and have been pursued through several schools of thought in the discipline.
The most influential studies have been based on fieldwork in Africa and Melanesia. Most anthropologists see connections between witchcraft, sorcery, and social tensions, erupting from conflicts inherent in social organization or in response to modernity and social change.
Witchcraft, sorcery, and magic relate to human encounters with and attempts to control the supernatural and are frequently described as ways to account for experiences and conditions that might not otherwise be explained.
They appear as themes when humans are concerned with misfortune and harm, accusation and blame, risk and responsibility, and therefore are often analyzed as forms of social control and leveling, as well as ways of perceiving reality.
Because they are closely related concepts in anthropology, the three terms often appear together in the same studies, yet have distinct meanings and intellectual histories.
The enormous anthropological literature in this area is long running and wide in scope, with examples from nearly every part of the world.
The foundational concept is magic, which encompasses beliefs and behaviors in which the relationship between an act and its effect rests on analogy or a mystical connection rather than empirical or scientific validation.
While at its core magic is an idea or belief, it manifests in acts and rituals, texts and spells, and objects such as amulets and talismans.
Anthropological theories of magic, including attempts to treat it as either separate from or inseparable from religion, date back to the discipline's mid‐nineteenth‐century origins and reached a zenith in the mid‐twentieth century through fieldwork‐based ethnographic research, especially connected to the structural–functional school of thought.
Witchcraft and sorcery are terms that describe how humans engage with magic. Witches and sorcerers appear with remarkable consistency among worldviews that posit the existence of magic.
While in the popular imagination the two roles may blur, usage is quite conventionalized in anthropology, owing to the impact of E. E. Evans‐Pritchard's influential study of the Azande, first published in 1937.
Following Evans‐Pritchard's lead, anthropologists nearly always use the term “witch” to identify people suspected of practicing, either deliberately or unconsciously, socially prohibited forms of magic, among other characteristics, and who are thus often scapegoats, members of persecuted groups, and reflective of social tensions, for example within close‐knit communities or kin groups. In some cases, the witch is not a person but a substance or supernumerary organ inside a person's body.
Witchcraft allegations tend to erupt in waves—“crazes”—in response to or along the lines of social tensions. Such tension may be inherent in social organization or, as the most recent research documents, perceived as an adjustment to modernity and social change.
In contrast, “sorcerers” intentionally take on the role of magical practitioner, engaging in activity often labeled by others as magic with ill or evil intent.
While some writers define sorcery simply as the use of magic, in a morally neutral sense, more typically the anthropological use of the term highlights efforts to manipulate supernatural forces for malicious or deviant purposes.
Paradoxically, the self‐identified practitioners of contemporary witchcraft, Wicca, or neo‐paganism of the twentieth and twenty‐first centuries represent a significant contrast both to the scholarly terminology and to the documented history of witchcraft.
These participants constitute a specific identity group or religious movement today and will be treated briefly later in this entry. In this respect, the term witch has a bifurcated use similar to that of shaman, with scholarly consensus diverging from some popular adoption.
Even among anthropologists, some use the terms witch and sorcerer, like shaman, widely—as broad labels that help make sense of patterns in the ethnographic literature—while others reserve them for more narrowly delineated, geographically or historically specific examples.
The material in this entry extends this introductory overview by emphasizing key ideas in anthropological treatments of magic, witchcraft, and sorcery and pointing toward prominent works of scholarship from the mid‐nineteenth century to the early twenty‐first century.
Magic: Intellectual History of a Concept
Mirroring theoretical emphases in anthropology as a whole, the main ways of explaining and asking questions about magic—as well as witchcraft and sorcery—have been the intellectualist, functionalist and structural–functionalist, and symbolist approaches. As used in the Western intellectual tradition, until recently magic has most frequently been attributed to non‐Western peoples, cultural others, or perceived European pasts, although all major world religions have some concept of magic.
In keeping with the paradigms of the times, anthropologists of the nineteenth and early twentieth century viewed magic in an evolutionary framework, as a characteristic of early stages of cultural development or human progress.
Notably, Edward Burnett Tylor (1832–1917) and James G. Frazer (1854–1941) hypothesized that magic was a precursor to religion and science. Given that it assumes primitive people used magic as a way of explaining causality, their approach is often labeled as intellectualist.
Magic was a way to explain things that could not otherwise be understood or accounted for. Rejecting the intellectualist premise, Lucien Lévy‐Bruhl (1857–1939) instead saw magic as a characteristic of how primitive minds perceived the world, qualitatively distinct from rational thinking; Lévy‐Bruhl's arguments are often referred to as part of the “primitive mentalities debate” of the 1920s.
With remarkable persistence, subsequent generations of anthropologists have revisited the arguments about magic developed by Tylor, Frazer, and Lévy‐Bruhl. Later writers found kernels of insight in these social evolution‐era writings, while largely discarding their ethnocentrism.
Foundational social theorists such as Émile Durkheim, Max Weber, and Marcel Mauss all argued that magic and religion were distinct and separate realms, representing fundamentally different human ways of classifying and understanding the world and corresponding to different levels of social organization and institutional development.
Nevertheless, the claim that magic and religion are qualitatively different phenomena has been rejected by numerous anthropologists for nearly a century. Some authors see strong similarities among ethnographic cases, suggesting a blurry distinction at best between magical and religious rituals.
Apart from their evolutionist framework, some of the early theorists also contributed vocabulary related to the description of magic that persist in anthropology and folklore studies today, even as their underlying arguments are rejected. Frazer suggested that primitive magic beliefs assumed a sympathetic link between unconnected objects, which could take the form of homeopathic magic (magic of similarity) or contagious magic (magic of touch.) In examples of magic where a desired effect resembles its cause, or an effect is produced by modeling the desired result, magic of similarity is at work.
The idea that seeds should be planted as a crescent moon is enlarging, or that eating walnuts will make the brain healthy, are examples. To Frazer, a connection also occurs between objects once actually connected, as posited in contagious magic.
Examples include manipulation of hair, nail clippings, or a footprint to affect the person from whom they came, or touching a potato to a wart and then throwing away the potato. Some examples combine both kinds of magic, such as performing a curse on a doll made with clothing from the targeted person.
Frazer's vocabulary and categorization reflect the intellectualist stance in their attention to how magical ideas work and in the effort to identify the principles organizing magic.
Another long‐lasting term to emerge in the late nineteenth century describes a supernatural force that is positive, prestigious, and powerful.
Tylor and others had been asserting that animism—the attribution of a soul to all living and inanimate things—was the earliest, most fundamental form of spiritual belief among humans. In this intellectual context, some researchers of the era found useful the Pacific Islands' concept of mana . Mana is the impersonal magical force associated with animae, or the souls of nonhumans. While a culturally specific term, the word has been applied as a general scientific concept to designate positive forms of magical power.
A second major anthropological approach to understanding magic is functionalism. Functionalist understandings of magic nearly always emphasize magic as a way of responding to psychological needs, arguing for example that people turn to magic in times of anxiety and uncertainty.
Magical activities are a way to gain relief and confidence, perhaps ensuring that everything possible has been done to take control, achieve success, and minimize risks. This approach developed during the period when anthropological research was increasingly based on empirical data produced through ethnographic fieldwork.
The most important figure associated with this argument was Bronisław Malinowski (1884–1942), a central contributor to the development of functionalism, particularly with a psychological bent, in the anthropology of the 1920s through to the 1940s. Working with voluminous data from lengthy fieldwork in the Trobriand Islands of Melanesia, Malinowski's observations about the circumstances in which islanders use magic—or in other cases feel they do not need to use magic—support that idea that magic serves a psychological function by reducing uncertainty and raising confidence ([1935] 1965; 1955).
For example, Malinowski noted that the Trobrianders used magic when fishing in the open seas but not in safe lagoons. While never failing to apply empirical knowledge to agriculture, they still used magic to ensure successful gardening.
Malinowski used his discoveries to weigh in on the primitive mentalities debate.
He rejected Lévy‐Bruhl's idea that primitive people were irrational because, in some circumstances, they used magic. Lévy‐Bruhl held that rational thinking was associated with developed societies while primitive people's thinking was mystical and prelogical, yet Malinowski insisted that the Trobriand Islanders were capable of, and regularly used, thinking that was empirical and more or less scientific in nature. While Malinowski agreed with earlier theorists that magic and religion were separate spheres—magic having to do with private, utilitarian needs; religion with public and institutional needs—he argued that magic and religion ultimately served the same functions.
Several more recent researchers, and countless university students of anthropology, have confirmed Malinowski's psychological functionalism with examples of superstitions and magical rituals from their own cultures. Gmelch (2010) is a widely read application of Malinowski's basic claims to American baseball, connecting athletes' use of rituals, taboos, and fetishes to the reduction of risk and uncertainty.
While the primitive mentality claim is easily dismissed today, the possibility that magic represents a way of thinking fundamentally in contrast to science has remained enticing and is often taken up by anthropologists interested in the importance of symbols and symbolic relationships as features of culture.
Recent theorists do not maintain that whole peoples engage magical, and not scientific, thought. Rather, they raise the possibility that magic is a way of thinking and perceiving, distinct from evidence‐based thought, and engaged in by some people or populations, at some times, in some conditions.
The idea of a distinctive magical worldview has also found credence in fields outside of anthropology. Current‐day psychology and psychiatry use the term magical thinking to describe beliefs in causal relationships that do not have an empirical basis: for example, among children or the mentally ill. The term is also sometimes used to characterize the logic in pseudoscientific claims.

Because the practice of magic inevitably requires the use of language, anthropologists have analyzed the relationship between magical power and words. Malinowski took up this issue in his 1935 Coral Gardens and Their Magic , observing that the power of magic was related to the power of all language, as humans speak about and to some degree control their world through language.
This argument was elaborated by Stanley Jeyaraja Tambiah, exploring a similarity in human beliefs about the power of words and concepts of magical power. To Tambiah (1968), magic is better understood as a form of performance than as ill‐informed science.
Like language in other performative contexts, such as theater, oratory, and religion broadly, the language of magic is not like the language of everyday life. It is likely to have specialized vocabulary—perhaps archaic or foreign, perhaps secret—and specialized forms such as incantations, spells, prayers, or chants. The ability to perform such language effectively is part of the role of the magician, however she or he is identified in the culture.
Magic in Relation to Witchcraft and Sorcery: The A zande Example
Not surprisingly, some of the ideas developed in the anthropological study of magic also appear in the literature on witchcraft and sorcery.
Conditions that lead to fissures in social relationships, conflicts of interest, and cognitive jarring recur among many populations separated in time and space. Worldviews that develop conceptions of magic, witchcraft, and sorcery, while varying in specific details, share certain similarities in how they conceive of, and respond to, misfortune and harm.
A goal of many mid‐twentieth‐century studies of magic and witchcraft, especially those conducted by anthropologists in the British structural–functionalist school, was to identify these patterns and discern features in social organization that might account for predictable variations.
The most highly regarded and influential explanation of magic as a distinct way of thinking comes from E. E. Evans‐Pritchard (1902–73), whose work among the Azande of North Central Africa in the late 1920s, published in its earliest form in 1929, constituted one of the fullest early fieldwork‐based accounts of magic, witchcraft, and sorcery. (In Evans‐Pritchard's writings, “Azande” is a plural form, while “Zande” is used as an adjective and singular form. Contemporary writers use “Zande” only.)
His book Witchcraft, Oracles, and Magic Among the Azande ([1937] 1976) was groundbreaking in its time for its relatively neutral, nonjudgmental stance on the validity of Zande beliefs. Evans‐Pritchard's widely read work yielded the differentiation of witchcraft and sorcery, introduced near the start of this entry, that remains conventional in anthropology today; however, the degree to which the dichotomy is universal or cross‐culturally valid, even within sub‐Saharan Africa, is debated.
Drawing on the Azande's own distinction, sorcerers intentionally seek to affect—likely to harm—others. They have studied and acquired skills to apply spells, carry out rituals, or use objects to afflict others. In contrast, the power of witches is unconscious and innate.
To the Azande, witchcraft resides in mangu , a substance in the witch's belly, inherited from a parent of the same sex. The substance leads something of a life of its own and can independently afflict people, especially those with whom the witch (likely unaware of the substance) has disagreement.
Azande have developed rituals to protect against witchcraft, as well as a legal system to identify witches and resolve conflicts with their victims. Zande identification of witches relies on a variety of oracles, of escalating power and reliability, ranging from simple do‐it‐yourself tests to assistance from respected diviners.
Perhaps the greatest impact of Evans‐Pritchard's work came from his observations about the circumstances in which Azande invoke beliefs in magic. He emphasized magic, witchcraft, and sorcery as explanations of misfortune, raised when no other explanation is possible, in circumstances others might attribute to bad luck. For example, he described anecdotally how a person walking down a path might stub his toe on a log.
A Zande would understand that the toe was injured because it struck a log but why that person happened to be hurt at that time by that log could only be explained as a result of witchcraft. Evans‐Pritchard saw witchcraft as part of an understanding of the chain of causation behind events, explaining synchronicity or chance.
Because Evans‐Pritchard paid a great deal of attention to how witchcraft allegations erupt between people in conflicting social roles or where social tension is predictable, his approach is squarely within the mid‐twentieth‐century theoretical paradigm of structural functionalism.
This orientation long dominated anthropological studies of witchcraft and sorcery, as evidenced in two multiauthor collections, both first published in 1970: Witchcraft: Confessions and Accusations, edited by Mary Douglas, and Witchcraft and Sorcery, edited by Max Marwick (with a second edition in 1982).
Taken as snapshots of scholarship on the topics, published from the 1929 through the 1970s, many of the authors represented operated within the structural–functional framework launched by Evans‐Pritchard, viewing witchcraft as a means of social control that could be understood through analysis of social structure.
Witchcraft: Delineating Consistent Features
Some scholars, viewing the extensive anthropological and historical literature on witchcraft, have noted prominent social factors and/or key components of worldview that typify all examples.
Such integrations range from minimalist views that see only a small number of unifying factors to lengthy and highly specific trait lists that see a fundamental similarity in disparate examples. For example, Fiona Bowie (2006, 200–202) points out the pervasiveness of two central concepts at the core of all examples of witchcraft cross‐culturally and through history. First, the idea of a life force, essence, or energy within people, and possibly in animals, objects, and the natural world.
Azande mangu is an example of this concept. Because such a life force can potentially be harmed or manipulated by others, a specialist—a diviner—may be called on to deflect the attack or to identify the assailant. Second, the idea of limited good: if there is only so much fortune, health, and happiness to go around, anyone who has a great deal of these or suddenly gains them may be suspected of profiting at someone else's expense.
In cultures with the idea of limited good, people are inclined to hide good fortune and level themselves within the community.
Bowie points out that these ideas, with regionally and culturally specific details depending on the part of the world, appear as beliefs in witchcraft and sorcery, or in the related phenomenon of the evil eye (involving the ability to cause harm through a gaze, motivated by envy), or both.
Despite some consistent similarities in worldviews of witchcraft and sorcery, Bowie also notes that the terms witchcraft and witch are used in disparate ways by scholars and the general public to refer to four distinct phenomena: the idea of maleficence, or harmful supernatural action, developed in medieval and early modern Europe; those identified as adversaries by Christian church reformers; African witchcraft and sorcery as documented by Evans‐Pritchard; the present‐day Wiccan or contemporary pagan movement (2006, 201–2).
To Bowie, these phenomena cannot be reduced to a single pattern and must be treated separately.
Another minimalist when it comes to delineating witchcraft is Mary Douglas: “The symbols of what we recognize across the globe as witchcraft all build on the theme of vulnerable internal goodness attacked by external power.
But these symbols vary according to local patterns of meaning and, above all, according to variations in the social structure” (1970, xxvi).
Douglas identifies only two main patterns of witch belief—those where the witch is an outsider and those where she or he is an internal enemy—which yield subclassifications according to the kinds of social relationships typifying witch roles and allegations in each culture (1970, xxvi–xxviii).
In contrast to the succinct conceptions of Bowie and Douglas, some writers prefer to emphasize a general, worldwide uniformity in witchcraft and sorcery, whether in sub‐Saharan Africa, Melanesia and the Philippines, Europe, or among Native Americans.
Lists of characteristics associated with witches anywhere in the world might include nocturnal activity, flight, community meetings or sabbats, and ritual murder.
Witchcraft beyond E vans‐P ritchard
Many structural–functionalist accounts argued that, aside from witch persecution in historic Europe, witchcraft is benign or even of positive benefit to a community. A classic ethnographic work that advances this claim is Clyde Kluckhohn's study of the Navaho ([1944] 1967).
Kluckhohn (1905–60) observed that belief in witchcraft contributed positively to society by encouraging generosity, conformity to social values, and by leveling economic differences, as community members sought to avoid accusations of witchcraft.
Like Malinowski, Kluckhohn saw psychological functions to witchcraft as well, with frustrations being vented at scapegoated individuals and community ties being affirmed through curing rituals for witchcraft‐produced illnesses.
Not all agree with Evans‐Pritchard and Kluckhohn that witchcraft is a useful way to air and resolve social tensions. Bowie (2006, 207–12) contrasts the structural–functional approach with alternative interpretations, including Robert Brain's (1970) study of child witches among the Bangwa of Cameroon.
As with the Azande, witchcraft accusations follow lines of social tension, for example among children with the same father but different mothers, rivals for resources and inheritance.
But rather than view the case strictly through a structural–functional lens, Brain utilizes food resource theory, observing that confessions of witchcraft are rewarded with a protein‐rich meal, enticing for youth in a resource‐scarce environment.
Some also note that structural–functional interpretations of witchcraft fail to adequately draw attention to the genuine injustice associated with some witchcraft accusations, including in sub‐Saharan Africa today. Scholar‐activists with concern for human rights and religious tolerance have documented present‐day injustice, including violence, toward people accused of witchcraft, especially in Africa.
The Western history of persecution of suspected witches, especially during the medieval and early modern periods, is well documented. Complicatedly, some antiwitchcraft activists within as well as outside of Africa advocate from the position of evangelical Christianity.
Their ultimate goal is to diminish traditional African religion by drawing attention to injustices associated with witchcraft and sorcery as part of those indigenous belief systems.
A scholarly study that combines structural–functional attention to witchcraft's association with social tension with a contemporary concern for injustice is Felicity Thomas's (2007) account of witchcraft and HIV/AIDS in Namibia.
Because some Namibians blame HIV/AIDS on immoral behavior, many patients attribute their illness to witchcraft, a socially acceptable explanation.
However, because patients also want to avoid witchcraft accusations—perhaps by avoiding assistance from family networks that might result in the appearance of sudden wealth or good fortune—they may delay medical assistance or not utilize the help of family and friends when needed.
While witchcraft exists as a form of scapegoating and accusations—a method of explaining causation and healing, or avoiding, social rifts—other practitioners around the world actively seek to harness supernatural power in order to affect others or control the conditions around them.
As typically used in the anthropological literature, sorcery is a pragmatic, conscious practice, involving acts of magic and leading to personal power for the practitioner.
Sorcerers typically must learn the texts, practices, rituals, or other components of magic as understood in their culture; such knowledge is esoteric and not normally available to everyone.
Like other specialists documented in anthropology, such as shamans and diviners, the sorcerer may work on behalf of clients.
Depending on the context, sorcery may be viewed as suspicious, fearful, or prohibited behavior, or a powerful means to right social wrongs and resolve conflicts.
To contemporary anthropologists, the practices of sorcery offer opportunities to study how consciousness is formed and how humans constitute, and operate within, reality.
An example in this area is Bruce Kapferer's The Feast of the Sorcerer: Practices of Consciousness and Power (1997), based on research among Sinhalese Buddhists in Sri Lanka. Kapferer carried out a detailed study of a ritual of exorcism, showing how sorcery and other aspects of social life are intertwined.
As with many examples in the history of anthropological terminology, conventional understandings of sorcery date back to the influential pioneering studies that initially made the term significant in the field. It has already been shown how E. E. Evans‐Pritchard's study of the Azande contributed the convenient distinction between witchcraft and sorcery and emphasized sorcery as magic intended to cause harm.
Another early ethnography that documents essentially the same dichotomy is Sorcerers of Dobu (1932) by Reo Fortune (1903–79). For the Dobu of the Western Pacific, witch and sorcerer were roles assigned by gender: “Witchcraft is the woman's prerogative, sorcery the man's.
A witch does all of her work in spirit form while her body sleeps … The man, as sorcerer, has the monopoly of causing sickness and death by using spells on the personal leavings of the victim” (Fortune 1932, 150). Dobuan men and women feared each other's power and viewed one another with considerable suspicion.
To Evans‐Pritchard and Fortune, sorcery is destructive if not illicit. In other literature, however, sorcery is shown to be morally complex but not invariably harmful.
Malinowski's early, detailed work in the Trobriand Islands—which so influentially shaped conventional uses of the concept of magic—also documented sorcery. In the Trobriands, sorcery was both a criminal practice and a form of punishment, depending on the agent. Naomi McPherson (1991), working in the same region in the 1980s, takes this double‐edged example as an opportunity to study social deviance and attitudes toward it, emphasizing how and under what conditions particular behavior is labeled as socially unacceptable.
To the Kabana of Papua New Guinea, there are subtle lines between sorcery as deviance and sorcery as a way to control deviance, which McPherson found could only be teased out through careful examination of human interactions and community attitudes toward behavior.
A desire for more subtle and accurate vocabulary leads some specialists on the Amazon region to use the terms “assault sorcery” and “dark shamanism” to specify the practice of injurious magic intended to afflict or to bring physical harm or death to victims.
Researchers in this area attribute such patterns to intervillage and interethnic tensions within the context of violent political situations in the region (Whitehead and Wright 2004). The role of such sorcerers is distinct from the more typical shamans of the region, who should be perceived as healers who work beneficially on behalf of clients.
Contemporary Witchcraft or Neo‐Paganism
In the West, long before there was a discipline of anthropology based on ethnographic study, there were popular and artistic images of the witch. These enduring images have roots in creative works of Shakespeare's era and earlier, as well as in nineteenth‐century Romantic literature.
Such images form a backdrop to the twentieth‐century religious movements identified as paganism, Wicca, or simply as witchcraft, which do not conform to the beliefs, practices, and social patterns conventionally described by anthropologists as witchcraft.
Contemporary witchcraft can be traced to the research and writings of Margaret Murray and Charles Godfrey Leland in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
Both argued that pre‐Christian European pagan fertility cults had survived in unbroken but esoteric traditions, maintained by people in the role of witch. Their work was academic and detailed but ultimately rejected by scholars later in the twentieth century, though Murray is recognized today as a pioneering woman in archaeology and the study of ancient Egypt.
The true popularizer of contemporary Wicca was Gerald Gardner, who developed the ideas of Murray, in particular, and claimed that the practices of his British coven went back to Paleolithic times.
Through a series of books published in the middle of the twentieth century, Gardner inspired what are variously called the pagan, Wicca, or occult communities today.
A significant body of ethnographic literature devoted to documenting such communities has been emerging in anthropology, folklore studies, and related fields.
As already seen, that understandings of witchcraft fall into two basic patterns: allegations about witchcraft purportedly practiced by others and the understandings associated with people who claim identity as witches or related roles.
A similar bifurcation characterizes satanism. Throughout most of Western history, periodic panics or allegations of satanic practices have erupted, often with roots in social tensions similar to those associated with witchcraft accusations.
A significant satanic scare flared in North America and Europe in the 1980s, most likely based in rumors, urban myths, and in evidence associated with a few highly publicized courtroom trials.
The public was captivated by lurid assertions that underground organizations were engaged in intentional satanic activity, including the ritual sacrifice of animals and/or children. This scare and others are documented in publications by anthropologist Jean La Fontaine.
Also in the second half of the twentieth century, organizations claiming satanic identity emerged in the West, primarily as a form of countercultural protest. Prominent among these is the Church of Satan, as well as its often short‐lived offshoots, such as the Temple of Set.
Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey was a prolific writer of some celebrity status; among his publications, the Satanic Bible is a primary scriptural source for the movement.
Most adherents, especially the many who might more accurately be described as interested followers, did not actually worship a satanic devil figure but professed atheism and a concern with criticizing the status quo.
Contemporary Anthropological Concerns
The most recent decades of anthropology have continued to pursue the study of witchcraft, sorcery, and magic, with most authors extending beyond the mid‐twentieth‐century structural–functional consensus.
Significant nodes of scholarship take up the three themes in relation to subjectivity, experimental forms of participation and methodology, and modernity, the state, and capitalism.
Consistent with anthropology's long interest in magic as a mode of thought, some researchers in recent years have considered magic in relation to subjectivity as a way to understand personhood or as a clue to human consciousness.
Examples of such studies may trace connections between magic and self‐conceptualizations—for example, by studying dreams—or may consider magic and healing as avenues for power and agency.
A few anthropologists in recent decades have pursued experiential methodology in the study of magic, steering away from the cultural relativism or methodological agnosticism typical of the discipline.
Researchers drawn to this approach tend to reject the position of rationality implicit in anthropological theory, which typically treats magic, witchcraft, and sorcery as about something other than what the participants say they are actually about.
Authors Susan Greenwood and Ariel Glucklich have used the terms “magical consciousness” and “magical experience,” respectively, to characterize these alternative ways of knowing.
The most significant shift in anthropological studies of magic, witchcraft, and sorcery has come with scholarship in the late twentieth century and early 2000s, in which these phenomena are viewed in relation to modernity, political power, and the state.
In some cases, the researchers document magic, witchcraft, and sorcery as they continue to exist and emerge, ever changing in light of a changing world. Important examples include the works of Peter Geschiere on witchcraft in Cameroon and elsewhere.
Geschiere retains older understandings about witchcraft's relation to accusation and social control but analyzes examples of witchcraft in the context of modern conditions such as national politics, business, and Western‐derived cultural change.
A work of wide scope and historical depth, Geschiere's Witchcraft, Intimacy, and Trust: Africa in Comparison (2013) identifies a persistent factor in witchcraft as noted by the structural functionalists: accusations and vulnerabilities occur frequently within the scope of intimate relationships, between people closely connected through home and family.

As a Black woman, I'm really disappointed to see the lack of history, studies and references in your AMA responses. I spend a lot of time educating myself and my family on Black history in the U.S. and Black history globally. I read international news and stay a part of wide reaching travel groups to see what life is like outside of America. I travel outside of the country any chance I get and this AMA has really colored me to BLM as not having themselves together with hard and fast facts. `You need strong answers. Defund the police? Ok, how? Replace it with what? You cannot remove a system without replacing it.` This is the biggest call for Black Americans (I cannot speak on other Blacks or Africans). We need an AGENDA with strong backing. Or the call for resources to STUDY items that would support the necessary agenda to improve the lives of Black Americans. `I'm done reading this AMA because it's not. It's a lot of reposting and saying going to BLM website.` But I do have one question, what will you do with this information that you've received on Reddit? Will you actually give Black Americans the agenda they need to be able to focus on positive reform in their own communities?

Very few people will support those who have consistently been advocating against them, even when those who traditionally opposed them are suddenly aligned with them. `Putting aside decades of animosity to stand together is the right thing to do, and also incredibly difficult, which was pretty much the point of stirring that animosity for decades. ` It doesn’t matter which side you are on, the dynamic is the same. The BLM crowd thinks the 2A crowd is all racists and the 2A crowd thinks the BLM crowd is all looters. Both are obviously false, and yet our distrust of “the other” keeps the obvious truth from being recognized. Again, almost as if that was the entire point of creating false divisions. `It isn’t black vs white, it isn’t right vs left, it’s the people vs the state. We the people share a common enemy, but we ignore that truth to hold on to the lie. ` Break the paradigm.

2020.05.17 21:03 tutetibiimperes Nugu Roundup #39 - NewKidd on the Block - 200517

Hello and welcome to the latest Nugu Roundup!
What is this?: This is a weekly feature designed to highlight the unknown/underappreciated groups and soloists working hard in the Kpop world that often fall under the radar. Please share your own information, favorite performance videos, fanmeet stories, or anything else relevant below!
Last week we had a special crossover event with Jukebox! This week let's check out a cool new boy group that had an interesting debut strategy, let's get to know NewKidd!
What is Nugu?: While in Korean it literally means 'Who' in the broader Kpop context it refers to groups that are generally unknown amongst the greater public. It doesn't have to mean they're extremely new, though it can, and there are of course varying degrees of 'unknown' which some groups having very strong niche fandoms and others being almost invisible. I take a fairly broad view and will include groups that may be known to some, but who don't have widespread name recognition.
Let's get on with the show...
Who are they? NewKidd is a 7 member boy group under J-Flo Entertainment. Their name stands for "Newgeneration key of the Dream"
Company: NewKidd appears to be the only group under J-Flo. J-Flo says that their company name comes from combining the words 'J' and 'Flo' which represent 'July' and 'Awesomeness' (this is straight from the company website...) They endeavor to find and train new stars who 'Shine bright like July'.
Most Recent Comeback: November 28th, 2019 with Come (MV) Live Stage (Link)

In Memorium
Who were they?: A four-five member girl group under Star Planet Entertainment. Their name originally stood for 'Black Lady', meaning all colors mixed, but was later changed to mean 'Blessed Lady' after the 2nd incarnation of the group. Their fandom name was Honey.B
Company: Originally under SY6 Entertainement, and later Star Planet Entertainment, which I can't seem to find any information on, they may have changed their name or ceased operations.
Active Between: May 6th, 2011 - October 20th, 2017

YouTube Channels: BladyTV, Star Planet Entertainment, SY6 Entertainment
Member YouTube Channels
Reasons for Disbandment: No official statement given, but looking at the numerous lineup changes throughout the history of the group and the lack of success on the charts it's possible the company folded or just decided to pull the plug. When it came time for the release of Giru's solo album there were originally plans for an MV, however the company could not pay for it and the home-made MV which was created was deemed too low in quality to release.
Trivia: Member Gabin was formerly a member of 2NB with EXID's Solji. Member Tina was born in Los Angeles and is good friends with Ashley of Ladies Code. Member CoCo later joined CocoSori and has since become a YouTuber and done solo work. Member Yeji redebuted as Ryeowon (her real name) as a member of PRISM. Having had eight members leave over the course of the group's career puts Blady in the top-ten of 'most members lost' lists (though still far behind Rania, Baba, and BADKIZ).
That's it for today, let's get the discussion on!
As always, if you have any suggestions for groups, content, or things you'd like to see, please let me know in the comments below.
Also as always, a big shout-out to u/not-named-in-credits for founding nugutown and u/sharnaranwan for continuing the work over there.

Source f4w
Michael Cole ran down the line up for tonight and announced Roman Reigns vs. Triple H from WrestleMania 32 for later tonight.
Sasha Banks and SmackDown Woman's Champion Bayley made their way down to the ring. Bayley noted WrestleMania is one week away, and anything is possible at WrestleMania. However, this year's WrestleMania is a nightmare because of Paige. Paige is forcing Bayley to defend the title in a fatal five-way.
Bayley and Banks know that Paige added Banks to the match to mess with them. Bayley pointed out that it doesn't matter because they're so close, and she doesn't have to worry about Banks. Before Banks could respond, Lacey Evans interrupted.
Evans noted that WrestleMania is going to be a nightmare for both of them. Evans promised to win the title when Naomi's music hit. Naomi pointed out that she's got unfinished business with Bayley. She then turned her attention to Banks and promised to rip off her blue wig.
Bayley was furious and said this isn't one of those times when everyone's music hits, and they interrupt. Suddenly, Tamina's music hit, and she interrupted. She said actions speak louder than words, and she gave Naomi a headbutt and hit a superkick on Evans.
Banks and Bayley attacked Naomi but backed off from Tamina.
They recapped Daniel Bryan & Drew Gulak against Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro from last week.
Drew Gulak (w/Daniel Bryan) defeated Shinsuke Nakamura (w/Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn & Cesaro)
Bryan and Gulak warmed up before the match and gave each other a salute.
Zayn joined Michael Cole on commentary for the match.
Nakamura had the early advantage and worked on Gulak's neck. Gulak hit a shotgun dropkick to take over and followed up with a series of shots. Cesaro pulled Nakamura out of the way, and Nakamura briefly took over. Gulak fought back and rocked Nakamura with shots into the corner.
Nakamura nailed Gulak with a kick to the back to regain control. He slowed the pace down with a front face lock. Nakamura went for the Kinshasa, but Bryan pulled Gulak out of the way. Gulak then rolled up Nakamura for the win.
Daniel Bryan challenges Sami Zayn for the title at WrestleMania.
They recapped Dolph Ziggler showing pictures of his date with Mandy Rose and Otis snapping.
In the back, Dolph Ziggler was on his phone talking to someone about Otis and Mandy Rose. Otis showed up and tried to attack Ziggler, but officials held him back. Ziggler challenged Otis to a match at WrestleMania and promised to have Rose in his corner. During the segment, there was the static and symbol that has been appearing for the last few weeks.
In the Performance Center, Elias was standing in the perch and noted he has a match with King Corbin at WrestleMania. He sang a song about Corbin's throne being a toilet. Images of Corbin on a toilet flashed in the background.
Corbin attacked Elias and beat him down. Corbin threw Elias over the railing of the perch, but he held on. Corbin then hit him with the scepter, and Elias fell to the ground.
Back from the break, Michael Cole recapped Elias falling from the perch and noted Elias is on his way to a local medical facility.
Alexa Bliss (w/Nikki Cross) defeated Asuka
Nikki Cross joined Michael Cole on commentary. Cole asked if anyone approved Cross joining him and reminded her about social distancing. Cross thanked Cole for having her, and he pointed out that he didn't invite her. Cole acted weirded out by Cross. Cole noted Cross was trying to get the fans to cheer for Bliss.
Bliss had the early advantage and sent Asuka to the floor. Asuka pulled Bliss out of the ring and threw her into the ring steps.
Back from the break, Asuka was firmly in control and worked over the arm. Cross tried to start a "Lexi" chant and told Cole to chant along. Cole chanted but then rolled his eyes.
Asuka mocked Cross, but Bliss regained control. Bliss dropped Asuka shoulder-first on the apron. Asuka missed a charge in the corner, and Bliss hit a clothesline. Bliss missed a standing moonsault, and Asuka rolled out of the ring. Bliss chased Asuka around ringside and threw her into the side of the ring.
Bliss attempted a DDT, but Asuka reversed into the Asuka lock. Bliss backed her into the corner. Bliss then rolled through and hit a DDT for the win.
In the back, The Usos noted it wouldn't be the road to WrestleMania if they didn't take on The New Day. They promised to defeat the New Day and win the tag team titles at WrestleMania.
They recapped "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt challenging John Cena to match at WrestleMania 36.
In the back, Dolph Ziggler spoke with Sonya Deville. Mandy Rose approached and asked to talk to Ziggler alone. Rose didn't like that Ziggler taunted Otis with those pictures. She refused to let them fight over her like she's a prize.
The Firefly Funhouse
Bray Wyatt welcomed everyone to the Firefly Funhouse. Suddenly, Wyatt's lantern tried speaking to him, but Wyatt noted he already had his chance and failed. Wyatt made a drink in a blender to help him beat John Cena. He added Ramblin Rabbit and laughed hysterically.
Wyatt noted that since Cena's such a big star, they shouldn't just have a normal match. Wyatt noted Cena should come to his world. Wyatt and "he" challenged Cena to a Firefly Funhouse match at WrestleMania.
The Usos vs. The New Day
SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison joined Michael Cole on commentary.
Jimmy and Kingston went back and forth. Jimmy attempted a monkey flip, but Kingston landed on his feet. The Miz and Morrison mocked The Usos at ringside.
Big E rocked Jey with a back elbow to gain control. The Usos took over and isolated Kingston on their side of the ring. Jey missed an enziguri, and Kingston broke free. Big E got the tag and ran wild. He caught Jimmy with a belly-to-belly suplex and hit a big splash on the apron.

2020.02.29 17:19 jddennis 2019 Book Bingo Breakdown

This was my second year doing the book bingo! Last year, I did one sheet. Since I knew about it ahead of time, I thought I'd up the challenge this year, and do two! I just finished the other day. I thought I'd give you a short break down of my selections, and a brief review of my impressions for each title.
#Sheet 1:
Bingo Square Title Author Review
Slice of Life/Small Scale Fantasy Howl's Moving Castle Diana Wynne Jones I've seen the film several times in theaters, but this was the first time I read the book. I was surprised how different it was, but I absolutely loved the story! I was really glad to see that the story deemphasized the war and gave more backstory to Prince Justin.
Novel Featuring a Protagonist with a Disability Age of Assassins RJ Barker In a lot of ways, this one feels like the literary equivalent of comfort food. It's really enjoyable, and flew by pretty easily. It was fairly easy to anticipate what's going to happen, but there was enough that was interesting to keep things enjoyable. I really liked the Welsh tinge to the story. I'll definitely come back to this series.
SFF Novella The Big Bah-Ha C.S.E. Cooney Read in C.S.E. Cooney's collection, Bone Swans. This took me longer than it should (yay moving), but it was really lovely in terms of prose. Since I was only able to get in a page or two before falling asleep, the plot was a bit lost on me.I'll probably re-read this at some point.
Self-Published SFF Novel They Mostly Come Out at Night Benedict Patrick I got this one for free, and it was okay. Honestly, I found the writing really uneven. It was really bad about summarizing things that would have made interesting scenes. The main character felt way too passive until the end, and then it turned into a level-up story. Those are big turn-offs for me.
SFF Novel Featuring Twins The Lions of Al- Rassan Guy Gavriel Kay I thought the characters were well done, and the setting was a great nod to medieval Spain. I loved the epilogue, too. When the plot was moving it was great. But the book suffered from a lot of info-dumps. It was hard to pay attention a lot of the time due to all the authorial exposition. If the story hadn't ground to a halt so often, I think I would have truly loved this book. As it is, though, it was only likeable.
Novel Featuring Vampires The Greyfriar Clay Griffith & Susan Griffith This one was a disappointment. I don't think it needed to be set on planet Earth -- a secondary world setting probably would've been better. Also, all the characters were pretty poorly done. The princess comes off as a Mary sue and the Greyfriar is her edgelord emo boyfriend. The only reason they get along is some hardcore Stockholm Syndrome. The authors specialize in media tie-in fiction for the CW shows Arrow and the Flash, and it's apparent. While I enjoy those shows, my taste in fiction has moved beyond that writing level. I don't think I'll be continuing this series.
Graphic Novel or Audiobook Tiamat's Wrath James S.A. Corey The 8th book of a 9 book series. I wouldn't be continuing if I didn't like it. I appreciate that they have finished the storylines of several of the fan-favorite characters.
SFF Novel by Author local to you Strange Practice Vivian Shaw I think this is a perfect alternative for people who like the tone of the Wayfarer's series, but disliked the lack of plot. This one has a decent plot with a very interesting villain, but it's rather straightforward. In fact, it ends with a demon ex machina twist. The characters, and their interactions, are really what make this book tick. It's a cozy take on urban fantasy that was just an absolute delight to get lost in. I'm definitely going to circle back to the rest of this series.
SFF Novel Featuring an Ocean Setting Stations of the Tide Michael Swanwick It’s hard to pigeonhole this story into one genre. There are many science fiction elements. Virtual reality, cloning, artificial intelligence, and interstellar travel are all in play. But the reader also gets a strong dose of magic, virgin births, and fantastical creatures. Perhaps calling this work a science fantasy is the safest. Whatever it may be, this is an enjoyable brain-tickler that I can't recommend enough.
Cyberpunk Blackfish City Sam J. Miller This was an instance where the parts were better than the whole. There were a lot of great concepts in this book, but it didn't gel together. I think the author's writing style was too distant -- the entire story was emotionally cold.
2nd Chance The Kingdom of the Cursed Greg Keyes The second in an ongoing series. I thought the first book was okay, but wasn't as engaged with this one as I had been with other works by Keyes. It's a portal fantasy, and the writing has a very strong fairy tale feel to it.
Afrofuturism Rosewater Tade Thompson No knock on the performance, but I had a hard time with the audiobook due to the accent. That shows a personal blindspot more than anything. The actual story was really good! I thought the parallels with Star Trek Discovery were really fun. I wonder if alien fungi is moving into the cultural zeitgeist some. I've purchased the rest of the trilogy, and look forward to getting around to them. If the TBR weren't so high, I'd get to them immediately, but I felt the need to finish these Book Bingo challenges off.
Fantasy Novel Published in 2019 The Rage of Dragons (Orbit Edition) Evan Winter I really liked how this novel was structured. I can see how it would work as a strong serialized, self-published story. I really didn't like the plot, though. I think revenge stories are overdone in general, and this really didn't have anything new to say from a theme perspective. Tau became a very hard character to like. I'll continue with the series, but hopefully there's a more interesting perspective/arc/thematic message.
Middle Grade SFF Novel The Girl Who Drank the Moon Kelly Barnhill I really enjoyed the authorial voice in this one. It's not the first Barnhill I've read, and she's got a great sense of using prose to convey the world. It's spot-on tone appropriate for the intended younger audience, but is strong enough of a story to hold my audience. I should find more authors similar to her for my reading pleasure.
A Personal Recommendation from Fantasy Gifts Ursula K. Le Guin I finished this one, but it didn't grab me. I understand Le Guin is an absolute master, but sometimes interest isn't there. In fact, I started (and completed) a nonfiction book in the middle of reading Gifts. I don't plan to continue with this series, but I'll definitely read more of her work in the future.
Any Fantasy Book of the Month or Read-along Book Senlin Ascends Josiah Bankroft This one reminds me of a mixture of "The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy" and "The Phantom Tollbooth." It's very episodic, based on the tower's nature. I like the simplicity of the quest (Senlin looking for his missing bride) and how it leads to all sorts of different adventures. I'll definitely continue this series.
Media Tie-in Novel The Deep Rivers Solomon I liked this one for what it was, and I appreciated the telephone-game nature of interpretation of the story of Drexciya. I don't think I liked the conclusions that the story reached. As Daveed Diggs' afterword points out, the Remembering in the clipping. song is more of a Seder-like collective experience in story-telling. In Solomon's third-hand remix, they turn the Remembering into a genetic storage of memory into one member of society. I think it was supposed to elicit a conversation about how Caucasian USA wants to sanitize it's historical memory of the American slavery system. But, to me, it felt like it directed the conversation to gaslighting and emotional abuse of an individual scapegoat. While I think the story was beautifully written, I don't think it was cleanly executed.
Novel Featuring an AI Character The Quantum Thief Hannu Rajaniemi I really enjoyed this one. It's a straightforward heist tale, and I have a fondness for those. But the post-singularity society was a real treat. The prose is laser-focused on delivering evocative, fun descriptions. Rajaniemi wrote with such verve and panache it's hard to believe this was his debut novel. I'll definitely be continuing on with this series.
SFF Novel that has a Title of Four or More Words The Fifth Head of Cerberus Gene Wolfe Three interlinked stories published in one novel. I liked all three, but I think the final one, V.R.T., was my favorite.
Retelling! Fair Peril Nancy Springer This one was a lot more humorous than I thought it'd be, and it was definitely a product of the nineties. I liked the idea of Faerie existing as an overlay of our own world. I also appreciated the theme of how the choices of our parents are reflected in our own lives.
SFF Novel by an Australian Author The Corpse-rat King Lee Battersby I really loved this one. It's got a lot of humor, and Marius is an absolute delight of character development. I love how Battersby takes him from a selfish heel at the start to a genuinely likeable person by the end. It's a lot of fun, and I'm definitely going to keep my eye out for more of Battersby's work in the future.
The Final Book of a Series Children of Ruin Adrian Tchaikovksy As of now, the end. The author has stated he's playing around with a potential sequel, but close enough. This book is a great continuation from Children of Time. It combines a lot of disparate genre elements, notably both horror and utopianism. The main aliens are uplifted octopuses, and (ambitiously), they're far less human than the uplifted spiders. I felt like there was a whole series of material crammed into this book. Super ambitious and highly recommended.
#OwnVoices The Lesson Cadwell Turnbull Set in the U.S. Virgin Islands, this book tells the story of the repercussions of an alien invasion. It's set up as a braided novel -- each chapter is it's own short story. It's interesting to get the perspective of several people who are closely tied to the aliens and to learn about their motivations. Honestly, I couldn't put this one down. It's definitely in my top 5 for 2019.
LitRPG One More Last Time Eric Ugland I got this one from the Prime Reader Library; that was this book's only saving grace. The main character, Montana, is an absolute dunce. His backstory is so poorly thought out and inconsistent, it's infuriating. It was a quick read (I finished it in a morning), though, so there was minimal time investment. I don't plan to continue with this series. Honestly, I think the LitRPG square is the weakest one for the Bingo. I don't think I'll voluntarily look for any books in this subgenre again.
Five SFF Short Stories Fearsome Journeys Jonathan Strahan (Editor) Epic fantasy is really hard to capture in short story form, and I think this volume suffered from that. There were a lot of good stories that really clicked with me, but some really were a huge chore.
#Sheet 2

Bingo Square Title Author Review
Slice of Life/Small Scale Fantasy The Golem and the Jinni Helene Wecker Excellent historical fantasy that explores the intersection of immigrants in New York City. Some of the reincarnation aspects to the story were unexpected. But the characters (and their clear personal goals) were the real highlight of this book.
Novel Featuring a Protagonist with a Disability A Red Sun Also Rises Mark Hodder A 2012 steampunk novel written like a Victorian epistolary novel. The prose is really well done, as is the worldbuilding -- the aliens are really cool. The book does a great job of confronting the question of evil, and is really entertaining.
SFF Novella The Box Jumper Lisa Manetti Told by an unreliable narrator, this story deals with Harry Houdini's quest to expose the falsity of Spiritualism. The timeline is very screwy on this one, so there were some really odd anachronisms. But overall, it was an interesting look at several important historical figures and the Spiritualist movement.
Self-Published SFF Novel The Dream Engine Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant This one just was not good. It's a huge rip-off. The world feels paper-thin, and the characters are no better. If you are interested in stories that feature dream worlds, I'd skip this and go to Paprika by Yasutaka Tsutsui and The Deep Sea Diver's Syndrome by Serge Brussolo.
SFF Novel Featuring Twins Down Among the Sticks and Bones Seanan McGuire Although I don't have a twin, I really felt this book spoke to me about children chafing under parental expectations. I felt like I had been to a therapy session after reading this one. All things considered, it was quite enjoyable, if cathartic.
Novel Featuring Vampires Certain Dark Things Silvia Moreno-Garcia I wanted to like this one better than I did. The idea of Mexican vampire gangsters was really cool, but there was a lot of extraneous world-building for a standalone novel. I didn't like where the characters ended up at the book's conclusion, either.
Graphic Novel or Audiobook Kushiel's Chosen Jacqueline Carey Second book in the series. Built admirably on the first. The pacing gets a bit loose in the middle, but the overall story is really good. And the steamy sections are quite enjoyable.
SFF Novel by Author local to you Exiles at the Well of Souls Jack L. Chalker Chalker was from Baltimore, and I live just north of that. Another second book in a series. I liked the story ok, but it ends on a cliffhanger. I wasn't interested enough to immediately get the next volume. The author's fascination with genitalia was repetitive and uninteresting overall.
SFF Novel Featuring an Ocean Setting The Roof of Voyaging Garry Kilworth I started reading this one fresh off of Christina Thompson's excellent non-fiction work: The Sea People. When talking about the Polynesian migration to New Zealand, Thompson wrote about the legend of Kupe and the Octopus. It was really awesome to see Killworth use this story as the opening basis of his excellent work. All-in-all, this is an unsung fantasy classic. The action is brisk, the people jump off the page, and the world feels far more real than many others. I wish this got a lot more attention. I'm definitely moving on to the rest of the trilogy as soon as possible!
Cyberpunk Reamde Neil Stephenson This one had a solid premise -- There's an MMORPG that's built around ethical gold farming and hackers are exploiting it for their own financial good. Then, through a really contrived accident, it becomes an homage to Tom Clancy, complete with the gun porn. It basically felt like a bait and switch, and was rather unsatisfactory. Turgid writing, bad plotting, and a dearth of ideas made this one entirely disappointing.
2nd Chance An Illusion of Thieves Kate Glass (Carol Berg) I don't think I've ever read a "comfy" heist novel, but that's the best way to describe this one. I haven't read any of Berg's books for over a decade and this was a nice way to return. I'm interested in following the rest of this series!
Afrofuturism Escaping Exodus Nicky Drayden I really enjoyed this one. Drayden does a great job of creating an interesting cast of characters and then spinning conflict from their competing priorities. The setting, a space beast that's been forced into work as a colony ship, is really compelling. It allows for some great environmental commentary.
Fantasy Novel Published in 2019 Titanshade Dan Stout A fun, hard-boiled novel. The book plays with its tropes well. I liked how ecological disaster and scarcity drove the story. Excellent commentary on current environmental issues.
Middle Grade SFF Novel Genesis Bernard Beckett Excellent philosophical novel for kids. Very interesting, if not unexpected twist at the end. Could also work for the AI square.
A Personal Recommendation from Fantasy The Cloud Roads Martha Wells I really enjoyed the world building for this book. Moon is a fascinating character, and the interpersonal drama was the highest point of this one. I plan to continue with this series. Pretty good for a recommendation!
Any Fantasy Book of the Month or Read-along Book Good Omens Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett I read this to prep for the upcoming tv show. It was super enjoyable! I laughed out loud quite a bit. Probably my favorite scene was when the bikers following the four horseman decide to pick apocalyptic names for themselves.
Media Tie-in Novel Shape of Water Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus When I saw the movie, I absolutely fell in love with this story. So reading the novelization made absolute sense. In a lot of ways, this was the perfect media tie-in novel. It expanded on the motivations of all the major viewpoint characters. I especially loved reading the viewpoint of the river god, brief though it was.
Novel Featuring an AI Character Starsight Brandon Sanderson I liked this one a lot. It was a better book than Skyward -- particularly because it challenged the main character's perceptions about the people she was fighting against. This isn't a cosmere book, but it explores several very similar concepts -- particularly the different realms. M-Bot was a fun character, but I wish he'd been used more.
SFF Novel that has a Title of Four or More Words The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet Becky Chambers I thought this one could have been better. Too many characters and too little tension made this one rather limp-wristed.
Retelling! Spinning Silver Naomi Novik I really loved this book. Sure, it's a loose retelling of Rumpelstiltskin, but it's also got echoes of the myth of Persephone, also. All of the viewpoint characters are interesting, fascinating people. I love that, aside from the consuming Chernobog, there's no true evil in the story. Everyone is trying to get by with the hand they're dealt. The conflict comes from different priorities ricocheting like billiard balls.
SFF Novel by an Australian Author The Stone Mage and the Sea Sean Williams I liked this one. It feels like a post-apocalyptic Australia, and it's cool to see the mix of magic and technology. I remember reading the Star Wars: New Jedi Order: Force Heretic trilogy that Williams co-wrote. This book feels very much like an audition to write a Star Wars novel. Not a bad thing; this was an entertaining work targeted at a younger audience.
The Final Book of a Series Dog Wizard Barbara Hambly I came across this one already owned in my Kindle library, and the premise sounded intriguing. So I quickly powered through the series so I could use it for this particular title here. Overall, I liked the series quite a bit. It didn't seem to dated to me. But the climax of the story relied a bit too heavily on magical technobabble to be wholly effective.
#OwnVoices The Bird King G. Willow Wilson The opening was a bit loose, and at first I thought the book had a bit of a tin ear. I respect the political points that were being addressed, but it felt a little clumsy. But the ending, and the overall message of the book was very strong. I'm really glad I finished this one.
LitRPG Accidental Thief Jamie Davis and C.L. Davis I know the authors of this series, so I thought I'd give it a shot. It's a fairly straightforward story that reads like a gaming session transcript. I got it from the library and it was a good listen while playing video games. I may continue with the series, but it's not high on my TBR.
Five SFF Short Stories Galactic Empires Neil Clarke (Editor) Last year, I read some sword and sorcery and underwater horror. So, to shake it up: space opera short stories! Lots of good stuff here, some that I had difficulty getting through. One of my unexpected favorites is "All the Painted Stars" by Gwendolyn Clare.

2020.02.22 04:00 kentucky210 Post Smackdown discussion thread 2/21/20

Source: f4wonline
A Goldberg video package aired before the opening theme song. It noted that Goldberg appears live on FOX for the first time.
They announced Braun Strowman & Elias vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro in a Symphony Of Destruction match.
SmackDown started with The Usos making their way to the ring. They noted they weren't on the show last week, but Miz and John Morrison wouldn't stop talking about them.
Jimmy promised Miz and Morrison a superkick party. Jey pointed out that they're not taking on Miz, Morrison, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode alone. New Day's music hit, and they made their way to the ring. The Usos thanked The New Day for keeping the belts warm for them. Big E called The Usos one of the greatest tag teams of all time. Kofi Kingston called them future Hall of Famers and pointed out The Usos are six-time tag team champions.
The New Day got in The Usos' faces. Big E pointed out that that's one less then the seven-time tag team champions The New Day. The Miz and John Morrison interrupted. They tried to get people to chant their names, but it didn't catch on. They promised to win the tag titles at Super Showdown. They then introduced Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode. Morrison pointed out that Ziggler had a great Valentin's Day date. The heels surrounded the ring.
The New Day & The Usos defeated The Miz, John Morrison, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode
The faces isolated Ziggler for the early advantage. The heels jumped Kingston from behind and pulled him to the floor. Miz rocked Kingston with a boot on the floor to take over.
The heels isolated Kingston in their corner and cut him off from his partners. On commentary, Michael Cole and Corey Graves discussed Ziggler stealing Otis' date Mandy Rose last week. Kingston and Morrison fought on the top turnbuckle. Kingston knocked Morrison off and nailed all three heels with boots knocking them off the apron too. Morrison recovered and rocked Kingston with a kick to the head.
Back from the break, the heels were firmly in control and continued to beat down Kingston. Kingston backdropped Ziggler to the floor and hit a double foot stomp on Roode.
Big E got the tag and ran wild. He hit a big splash on Miz and set up for the Big Ending. Miz slipped out the back and tagged Morrison. Big E attempted the running spear off the apron, but Morrison hit a knee. Morrison hit the shining wizard and shooting star press, but Kingston broke up the pin attempt.
Jimmy rocked Morrison and Miz with superkicks, but Roode hit the Glorious DDT. Roode attempted to hit the DDT on Jey, but he fought out and hit a superkick for the win.
In the back, Drew Gulak approached Daniel Bryan. Gulak made a PowerPoint presentation for Bryan to point out the holes in his game. Gulak mentioned Bryan's match with Heath Slater a few weeks ago.
Slater approached and demanded a match against Bryan tonight. Bryan agreed and told Gulak to help Slater out since Bryan has so many holes in his game. Bryan walked off. Gulak turned to Slater and told him they have a lot of work to do.
They recapped Otis and Mandy Rose's romance and the failed date from last week when Dolph Ziggler showed up.
In the back, Tucker approached Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville. He was mad that she broke Otis' heart last week. Tucker pointed out that Otis combed his hair and got new underwear. He said Otis is devastated and won't even leave his hotel room. Deville told Tucker it wasn't the right time.
Rose pointed out that she went out with Ziggler because Otis didn't show up. Tucker noted she texted Otis that she was running late, but Rose didn't know what he was talking about. Deville acted confused too. Tucker left, and the fans broke into an "Otis" chant.
Rose said she was looking forward to her date with Otis and would have instead gone out with him. Deville told her not to worry about it, and Ziggler's more of Rose's type of guy anyway. The fans booed intensely.
Renee Young interviewed Lacey Evans. Young pointed out that Evans was a bully, just like Bayley and Sasha Banks. Evans tried to claim that calling people "Nasties" is a term of endearment. She then admitted to being a bully but learned from dealing with Banks and Bayley. Evans's next goal is to recover from her loss to Bayley and became champion.
Symphony of Destruction: Braun Strowman & Elias vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro (w/Sami Zayn)
Various musical instruments surround the ringside area. They recapped Sami Zayn's protest concert last week.

2020.02.13 17:16 TheRV1HD Booking The Elimination Chamber PPV

  1. Winner Faces The Universal Champion At Wrestlemania - Elimination Chamber Match - Roman Reigns Vs Sheamus Vs Daniel Bryan Vs King Corbin Vs John Cena Vs Kane
  2. Braun Strowman & Elias Vs Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura
  3. Seth Rollins Vs Kevin Owens
  4. Womens Elimination Chamber - Winner Earns A Shot At The Champion Of Their Choosing - Naomi Vs Shayna Bazsler Vs Sasha Banks Vs Asuka Vs Lacey Evans Vs???
  5. Winner Gets The Final Spot In The Elimination Chamber - Ruby Riott Vs Liv Morgan
  6. US Championship Fatal 4 Way Match - Andrade Vs Rey Mysterio Vs Humberto Carillo Vs Angel Garza
  7. Smackdown Tag Team Championship - The New Day Vs John Morrison & The Miz
  8. Aleister Black Vs AJ Styles
  9. Otis Vs Dolph Ziggler
  1. Otis Vs Ziggler comes together when Ziggler attempts to ruin Mandy and Otis date. As it turns out Ziggler has been asked to do this from an undisclosed source. The story would hint at it being Mandy playing Otis for a fool but the eventual reveal to come after this match would be that Sonya was the one who got Dolph to ruin things.
  2. Aleister Black is looking for a fight and needs to stay relevant by fighting big names. Since Rollins is currently busy AJ is expected to return at Super Showdown so why not have him be the one to answer Black's open challenge? Styles Vs Black would tear the house down on a throw away show.
  3. At Super Showdown I expect both teams to brawl on the outside to a draw leading to a rematch at Elimination Chamber where Miz and Morrison would finally win the titles.
  4. It feels like they are setting up a 4 way match between the 4 Latino talents on RAW. This would be another possible show stealer. Garza and Humberto have issues. Mysterio and Andrade have issues. Humberto and Andrade have issues. Garza and Mysterio have issues. All that's left is some tension between Garza and Andrade and we are golden.
  5. Ruby Vs Liv is bound to happen soon and there should be high stakes between the two former friends. Have them face each other for the final spot in the chamber in a match where Liv is attempting to prove to Ruby that she can stand on her own two feet. It's even bigger and better story telling when Liv wins the match but Riott takes her out and takes her spot anyways. Heel heat.
  6. As for the women's chamber match I'm hoping that Sasha will be ready to go. If she is this would come down to her Vs Bazsler. Who wins would be a tough decision. Shayna is in Beckys head anyways so I feel like she would get her shot regardless so why not have Sasha win then turn on Bayley? As for Naomi the storyline for her in this is that shes losing the spark that she once had.
  7. Owens Vs Rollins is the 1 on 1 match that's going to happen sooner rather than later. They may make it a lumberjack match with AOP, Murphy, Joe and The Viking Raiders at ringside or simply a straight up one on one. Either way this is the blow off to this story.
  8. Speaking of blow offs to feuds here we have Elias and Strowman finally ending their war with Nakamura and Cesaro. This has been going on a while now so they would need to nip it in the bud.
  9. The line up for the chamber is rumoured to change somewhat and I hope it does. Bring in Kane for name value and his history with The Fiend. Cena is returning so throw him in there. Throw Sheamus in there as well as another big name and we have ourselves a strong chamber match. As for who will win this will come down to Reigns and Bryan. These two always have solid encounters and it book ends their story from all the way back when they became partners for a while in 2019. Reigns is more than likely the winner here.
Other Notes:
  • Otis and Ziggler as well as Liv Vs Ruby will both be pre show matches.
  • I expect an Orton and Edge interaction on the show in some way. Edge possibly returns here and attacks Orton?
  • Drew McIntyre and Paul Heyman should also have a segment where all being well Heyman will offer up a chance to be kicked in the face. Yes I would want Paul to take a Claymore Kick on this show.
