Aboriginal Archives: Gippsland Massacres and the unnamed dead

Aboriginal Archives: Gippsland Massacres and the unnamed dead
This is the third in a collection of true crime events, by themselves uniquely brutal and investigations themselves unquestionable, yet quietly set aside by the local public servants - be they police, justice workers, and others.
Note: This story contains the names and descriptions of deceased Aboriginal persons.
This series of crimes is not unique, but I think provides an illustrative example. Additionally, this is relating to a series of historical criminal events. The details are intentionally scarce as the perpetrators were worried about convictions so did not keep many records. The accounts of events from the local population were limited to those of the settlers.

The rolling green hills of Gippsland, Victoria [N1]
The Gunai/Kurnai people
The Gunai/Kurnai, formerly called the Gunai or Kurnai, is an Aboriginal Australian nation of south-east Australia. This post will refer to them as the Gunai Kurnai people. Their territory occupies most of present-day Gippsland and much of the southern slopes of the Victorian Alps. This land runs along the coast of southern Victoria, home to stunning old growth forests in East Gippsland and noted for its modern agriculture. Gippsland was a true Garden of Eden for European settlers. However, the Gunai Kurnai people were well established there. With about 4000 persons before European settlement Gippsland was more densely populated than many other areas.
In the mid-1990s, there was a so-called culture war (the "history wars") within the halls of Australian historic academia [N2]. This was a fierce debate driven by a bone of contention - it was a long-held, deeply believed myth that Australia was a county where explanation into Abogional lands was a largely peaceful one. During that time even calculating the number of Aboriginal dead was seen as a controversial attempt at changing history and assigning blame needlessly. When Australian history began to develop as its own area of interest in the 1950s there was little to no attention paid to Aboriginal Australian history; at best it was a backdrop to the European experience and at worst of a fluke of perpetuation by unusually clever beasts.Now there is a map available showing the locations of the Colonial Frontier Massacres from 1780 to 1930 [N3].
Note that on Tasmania the native Palawa is fully extinct, as is their language and culture: in 1803 there was an estimated 3,000 to 15,000 people but within thirty years there was just 47. The final death keel came where the last 400 persons were incarcerated in camps where most died from a toxic mixture of malnutrition and disease. Some current descendants of Palawa women and European men refer to themselves as Aboriginal Tasmanians.

The Accused

One of six historical bronze figures, McMillan is represented by a coat of arms, Scottish thistle, and two human skulls in a saddlebag. By Annemieke Mien, 1986. [N5]
Angus McMillan, such a famed explorer that his cairn lists the sites he discovered, is also a notable mass murderer. He led many of the Gippsland massacres a ten year period starting in 1940 that killed or displaced the Gunai Kurnai. Born on the Isle of Skye, Scotland McMillan migrated to Australia in 1838; by the time of the Warrigal Creek Massacre he was entrenched in pastoral activities, leading many of the assaults on the Gunai Kurnai. Presently, nineteen monuments honouring McMillian exist in Gippsland, his homestead was preserved then moved to its current location at the open-air museum Old Gippstown. The federal seat was named after him in 1948. The Federal Division of McMillan was renamed Division of Monash in 2018.
Captain William Dana was born in England into a family of notable military experience. He established the Native Police Corps in what would become Victoria. He was also responsible for the Barmah Lake and Snowy River massacres. The Corps is considered reasonable for 125 deaths over two decades. Dana was notable for refusing to arrest Aboriginal people, preferring to have them shot.
The reports on Barmah Lake do not list any official deaths. Instead, an unofficial verbal report made to GA Robinson by a man only referred to as Allen made the following statement:
...a number of men also women were shot by Dana's party at the Murry [sic] and children were knocked on the head with carrabines [sic]. They first sent out a party to look for the natives and then went and planted themselves in a scrub and sent two or three troopers to round or drive them like sheep to be large party carrelled; then they commenced firing and shot some of them in the river. Dana told me he had a brush with the natives. He went to the Murry [sic] by the Campaspe and returned said 20 men, one woman, five children were shot. Kelsh's overseer told me that he, Dana, said he would turn the natives out. (Robinson 5 Jan 1844). [N6]
The Deaths

October–December 1840: Nuntin Station
In October 1840, squatter Angus McMillan brought down cattle from Numblamungie to the stock run at Nuntin in Gippsland. He left his men in charge there and on his return some weeks later they told him that the Kurnai had scattered the stock and attacked them. McMillan gathered his stockmen together, and massacred any Kurnai [possibly Gunnai or Tatungalung or Braiakaulung speakers] at Boney Point on the confluence of the Avon and Perry Rivers. McMillan admitted to this incident in a letter to Lieutenant Governor La Trobe on August 25, 1853. When G.A. Robinson travelled through this area in 1844, he saw many human bones and skulls along the shores of Lake Wellington. Historian P. D. Gardner considers that at least 15-20 Aborigines were killed. Total: 20

In July 1843, Ronald Macalister, nephew of squatter Lachlan Macalister, was murdered by Brataualang Aborigines, near Port Albert. An avenging party of 20 horsemen, known as 'The Highland Brigade' was organised by Angus McMillan, Lachlan Macalister's former overseer, to look for the killer. The 'brigade' was 'sworn to secrecy'. They went on a five days rampage, killing over 150.

Box’s Creek Massacre
In 1841 some thirty Kurnai were murdered by European settlers at Box’s Creek (also known as Butcher’s Creek). They were pursued in retaliation for allegedly spearing cattle and trapped on a peninsula of land at Bancroft Bay by an armed party of twelve. On that strip of land, hemmed by endless water, they were slaughtered.
Warrigal Creek Massacre
In July 1843, Ronald Macalister, nephew of squatter Lachlan Macalister, was murdered by Brataualang Aborigines, near Port Albert. According to G.A. Robinson he was murdered after some depraved white men, had, in a fit of drunkenness, 'shot and killed some friendly natives.' An avenging party of 20 horsemen, known as 'The Highland Brigade' was organised by Angus McMillan, Ronald Macalister's former overseer, to look for the killer. The 'brigade' was 'sworn to secrecy' and they appear to have set out on a five day rampage attacking 4 Aboriginal campsites.
After slaughtering about 75 at Warrigal Creek Waterhole and a further 25 at Warrigal Creek mouth, they then shot down another family group of 25 at Freshwater Creek, before moving on to Gammon Creek. In reviewing every known account of the massacre in 2001, Peter Gardiner considers that Gammon Creek was the last in the rampage and that 25 Kurnai were slaughtered and human bones later found. In all 150 Kurnai were killed in the 5-day rampage across 4 sites. The rampage would fit the criteria of 'genocidal massacre'. In reviewing every known account of the rampage in 2001, Peter Gardner considers Warrigal Creek mouth was the second campsite where 25 Aboriginal people were killed.
Afterwards, McMillan kept a hessian bag of human skulls for some time after the event.
Human bones have been found at the site on several occasions. Total: 150
The White Woman of Gippsland
A rumour around the area led to the repeated abuse of Gunai Kurnai by local pastoral settlers. They thought that a white woman had been kidnapped and was being held and raped by locals of Gippsland. Repeated raids were held based on the discovery of woman's undergarments and the assumption that survivors of a shipwreck in 1836 made it to shore. The white men...
"They also carried a number of handkerchiefs, with the following notice printed in English and Gaelic:
There are 14 armed men in search of you. Be cautious and rush to them when you see them near you. Be particularly on the look-out every dawn of morning. For then the party are in hopes of rescuing you. The white settlement is towards the setting sun.
Possibly this is the only instance of Gaelic having been used officially in Victoria, the reason being the supposed loss of a ship in Bass Straits with a number ol' Highland immigrants, many of whom at that period were unacquainted with English.
The expedition succeeded in taking prisoner the woman's supposed captor, Bunjaleena. But, although he was imprisoned and not released until he undertook to deliver her up, that wily individual only appears to have led the police a succession of wild goose chases. One interesting find they made, however, was the figurehead of a small vessel. It was the bust of a woman. The blacks carried it aboutwith them, and appeared to hold it in great reverence, for it was only obtained from them with the greatest difficulty.
The late Mr. Allan McLean always expressed himself as having been very doubtful of a white woman ever having been with the Gippsland blacks, asserting that the figurehead secured by the third expedition was the fonset orgio of the various reports. How he held this view it is hard to conceive, for on October 29, 1847, only four miles away from Tyers' Camp, a native trooper found the dead body ofa white woman and a half-caste child. The following day Angus McMillan held an inquiry, but nothing was found by which the unfortunate's identity could be established." [N8]
It's been suggested that the figurehead is the most likely theory as to the rumours of the White Woman of Gippsland and the repeated raids were driven by hysteria. Total: 50
In 1846 Gippsland squatter Henry Meyrick wrote in a letter home to his relatives in England:
The blacks are very quiet here now, poor wretches. No wild beast of the forest was ever hunted down with such unsparing perseverance as they are. Men, women and children are shot whenever they can be met with … I have protested against it at every station I have been in Gippsland, in the strongest language, but these things are kept very secret as the penalty would certainly be hanging … For myself, if I caught a black actually killing my sheep, I would shoot him with as little remorse as I would a wild dog, but no consideration on earth would induce me to ride into a camp and fire on them indiscriminately, as is the custom whenever the smoke is seen. They [the Aborigines] will very shortly be extinct. It is impossible to say how many have been shot, but I am convinced that not less than 500 have been murdered altogether. [N10]

2020.06.06 09:48 Etoile67gp Should a Dom always be dominant irl?

I'm ( M53) a newbie to all this and have created a Fetlife account and started reading stickies and joining online discussions. The one thing that i find most surprising is that whenever i ask the above question i always get the same responses which makes me think that i shouldn't be in any kind of D/s relationship. I live in France near Paris and i've joined quite a few communities to learn and develop my awareness and knowledge. Quite a number of experienced and respected Doms have been kind enough to reply to my questions and offer their advice. This is the problem, because even though i'm new and inexperienced i believe there's a problem with what they're telling me.
I joined Fetlife not to use as a dating app but because it's supposed to be the best site to learn from and discuss with experienced Doms and subs. I was told by the majority of the Doms and quite a few subs who contacted me in France, Italy, Holland and Belgium, that in order to become a real Dom i must absolutely be in a position of dominance in my everyday life. I should be dominant in my professional life in order to be dominant in my private life. I'm a senior high school/university teacher and those who contacted me politely suggested that this job just wouldn't cut it with the majority of prospective subs. In my job i never raise my voice, despite having to deal with highly volatile teenagers or young adults, i love caring foboosting and encouraging my students and i don't need to use emotional manipulation to get them to do things for me. The majority of subs on Fetlife who contacted me told me that subs are looking for a highly educated/well travelled/powerful male alpha figures ( read christian Grey!) who can treat them as a princess and a sub. I've read that quite often women irl with stressful/demanding jobs and careers want to relinquish power as a form of stress relief/power exchange and i was told that women who are dominant irl like to be submissive in the bedroom, but that a man absolutely must be dominant irl otherwise he can't be dominant in the bedroom. Furthermore, lots of experienced members of Fetlife over here in France suggested that to meet any sub i should join my local golf club, join local business communities, and basically hang out with the established BDSM community, which over here in Paris is majority upper middle class/highly educated/into international travel, because that is the type of environment where BDSM members socialise and that a Dom won't have any chance on an online dating site. Furthermore, i should automatically display dominant traits in my job such as being used to giving orders, dominating conversations, being tough with people, making decisions under stressful circumstances, multi task, ie be in a senior management position, be a business owner, in order to gain the respect of a sub and that i must be able to control other people otherwise i won't be able to control my submissive. I was told that to control someone i must use different methods such as 'raising my voice', dominating a discussion, using powerful body language to physically dominant my submissive, shout or yell ( i thought you should never do this), if she needed correcting, be rough with her at all times since she's always submissive, that giving aftercare is secondary to my own sexual needs ( this from one of the most visible Doms in the community who organises dungeon parties) ) that a Dom must be highly skilled in emotional and sexual manipulation ( i stress the word manipulation )since this is the word another 'experienced' Dom with over a dozen subs used on numerous occasions in order to dominate his partner. Having already read several several popular BDSM books ( The New Topping/Bottoming/SM101) i was under the impression that trust is the most important thing in establishing a safe and consensual BDSM relationship and that trust needs to be earned and in consequence the sub gives her respect to her Dom. She decides when she wants to hand over her powecontrol to her Dominant. I couldn't remember reading anything about emotional or sexual manipulation in these books. I was quite shocked when two members who are senior medical professionals irl frequently used the word control as a means to get the sub to do certain things even if she didn't want to do those things. I assumed that it was the sub who decided what she wanted to do and then handed over control to her Dom and that she should never be forced to do something if it didn't respect her agreed boundaries. These two highly educated professionals ( and very experienced in the BDSM community over here ) suggested using psychological manipulation to test her boundaries because 'sometimes the sub doesn't actually realise what's good for her' and that i 'should find her weaknesses and use them to test her limits in order to establish more control and dominance over her so that she doesn't even realise that you're manipulating her emotional state and you can achieve greater personal sexual satisfaction'. Finally, several experienced Doms with multiple long term play partners told me that 'a good Dom is always a polyamorous Dom 'and that i can't call myself a real Dom unless i can 'catch in my net multiple partners to show my sexual experience'. Finally, i was told that because i suffer from C-PTSD i would find it really difficult to find a submissive partner because a Dom must be strong mentally and emotionally.
So this has totally confused me and left feeling pretty depressed. I'm reading the stickies on Fetlife but what i'm being told by long term experienced and respected Doms and subs goes against what i've read.

2020.05.27 02:29 strangebeets Lanc Food Map: Quarantine Roundup

Hey all! Today I finally had the time and the energy to make a long list of which restaurants are open and where you can go to order from them. It's far from comprehensive, but I've spent the past eight or so hours looking at close to 200 different websites to find information about each restaurant on my list. I'm content with what I came up with.
I seriously doubt I'll update this with any regularity, so I included links to whatever site each restaurant is using to keep people updated. Most of them have a reasonably obvious online ordering system, or some kind of COVID-19 notice, or they use Grubhub/DoorDash/UberEats/whatever. Some weren't very obvious and some were a little weird, so I included notes about them (looking at you, Ma(i)son).
If you see something that's incorrect, let me know! If you have any questions, let me know! I've been scouring websites all day, yet I'm sure I overlooked something. Also, to any restaurants still using facebook as their only website: why? It's 2020. There are a million easy website design platforms.
Here's a link to the Lancaster Food Map itself (unsurprisingly, not a whole lot has changed during Corona Times), and onward to the list!
Edit: added some places.

Places that are open for some kind of take out or delivery:

Places that are temporarily closed:

You made it to the end! There were a handful of restaurants that didn't have any clear information as to whether they're open or not, so I omitted them from this list.

2020.04.22 12:13 DennisArslan My sites for finding remote opportunities online in 2020 💻🌍

I’ve compiled a list of jobsites that served me in the last 10 years, for finding opportunities in remotely online, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
Privileged Jobsites
Remote Work
I will complete this list, but there seem to have around 500 applications per job listed on these remote jobsites, so they are not always the best way to find a new position.
Hacker News
The focus on Hacker News isn’t on making cheap money, but on high-level technologies, so in my experience the quality is extremely high.
United States
United Kingdom 🇬🇧
I have lived in London for 3 years and can personally vouch for these jobsites.
The Netherlands 🇳🇱 Major jobsites
I’m Dutch! Unfortunately a lot of recruiters don’t seem to have direct contact with the hiring managers and many companies refuse to use recruitment companies. It’s probably because of cultural reasons, but that makes working with recruiters in Holland less useful.
The Netherlands 🇳🇱 Smaller freelance jobsites
This is a pretty outdated list, so I forgot which of these sites was the best. It seems a lot of people seem completely focused on making money or saving money on the smaller sites.So there isn’t always a great focus on quality over money. The Dutch recruitment market is a bit messy. Often the recruiters don’t have any contacts within the company they are hiring for.
Building a solid online reputation with Github or a YouTube channel will also work wonders.
I've also posted this on my blog at, which I'll keep up-to-date for at least the next 12 months.

First of all, the year is only a little over a month old, and there are already 8 post here promoting nuclear energy. It is clearly NOT unpopular. `While you have created an extensive post, it has quite a few omissions. Basically the same omissions you always find in topics promoting nuclear. I’d suggest reading a link like this with deals with lots of nuclear propaganda’s claims: [](` First you start by smearing renewables: `\- Solar is not bad for nature. Modern solar panels hardly use rare materials, and in the near future will use non. Nuclear uses a whole lot more of these materials. They can be recycled fairly easily for over 99,9%, while decommissioning and recycling nuclear plants is enormously expensive and often not completed for that reason. Opposite to your view, in most places in the world, it is very predictable. ` \- Wind does not have a short life. I have a 25 year old windmill nearby that works like a charm. Offshore wind farms all constructed for a 30 year life. Wind does not destroy landscapes, it can be build at sea where winds are also reliable and predictable. `\- Geothermal has endless possibilities, why on earth would you say it is not viable for large scale?` \- There are lots of other alternatives you don’t mention. `The ‘fact’ that nuclear is 2-3 times cleaner is ridiculous. First, what do you mean by clean? If it is CO2 you are talking about, this is simply not true if you look at the whole life cycle. Also, keep in mind it easily takes 15 years to build a nuclear plant, while a solar or wind farm of similar size takes about a year or 2. That means if you invest in energy production to replace fossils like coal, you have to keep the coal plant open for an additional 13 years.` Nuclear is also not cheaper. Simply comparing prices and subsidies for current nuclear plants and comparing them for example to offshore wind means nuclear is lots more expensive. For example, consider that Hickly Point C in the UK requires 50 billion pounds in subsidies, while wind farms require none. And that is excluding the cost for waste management and storage, accidents, etc. `Renewables are easily scalable, they are ridiculously cheap. Energy storage is an issue, but not on the scale as you describe. It can be fixed with current technology and still be much cheaper and earlier available then nuclear.` Fusion is also a great talking point, but just like 60 years ago it is still at least 30 years away. We simply cant wait on fusion. It is still very uncertain if and when it will be viable, there is absolutely no guarantee it ever will, let alone be in time to impact climate change. ITER is still a far way from being completed and like always promises related to scifi nuclear technology are way to optimistic. Even if it is a huge success, it is still only a first step, nowhere near ready for mass and commercial exploitation. `Stop dreaming about fusion and support the tools that we have right here, right now. If fusion happens than that is great, but we have to proven technology to get clean and affordable energy already available.` “Renewable resources are not scalable in reality and will never fulfill the needs of humanity” This is ridiculous, lots of countries already do so and these technologies are still evolving at incredible speeds, beating even the most optimistic scenarios time and time again. `“These aren't just theoretical thoughts but the reality of current France and Germany is the best example” France is closing all its nuclear plants and only replacing some of them on paper. There is just one nuclear plant in construction in France at Flamanville and it is a gigantic mess.` You are just not being a fair advocate for nuclear power if you completely neglect to mention the huge costs and long construction times, and ignore the fact that most countries will have to import all fuel and technology and would become completely dependent on foreigners. Most of the world is simply not stable enough to warrant 50 year long investments even if there were investors left willing to invest in nuclear. `Also, while we don’t mind selling our (potential) enemies a windmill, we do not want to see them have a nuclear power plant for obvious reasons. In the West, nuclear is to expensive and to slow, and we don’t want the rest of the world to have massive piles of nuclear waste and nuclear production capacity for some very good reasons.` Edit; thanks for all the nice informative replies and the silver! ` Edit2; This is amazing, thank you for all the awards I didn't even know existed, incl a gold an platinum one! First time a post of mine blew up like this. Thank you everybody!`

My life started growing up in a small farm 🐄🐄in northern Kansas. My father was a farmer and my mother was a cashier in our local town down the dirt road. We didn’t have much and income 😢was very little, my best toy I got growing up was a pig bladder blown up like a balloon that I could play around with between me and my two brothers. At the age of 11 things started getting tougher in my house life due to my fathers drinking problem as it was not a good harvest that year. Like his father before him once he was done working he would come home and drink but unlike his father he wouldn’t beat us unless we messed up, his father left him and his mother to fend for themselves after world war 2 though so he had it tougher than me growing up. One time my father did drink too much and he hit my little brother Jamey. Jamey didn’t know what to do and ran away during the night during a storm😳🤭. The entire family was out looking for him but we never saw Jamey again😢😭😭. This made my father drink more and lead him to take his life when I was at the age of 16. My older brother and me had to completely take over the farm with the help of our mom quitting her job as a cashier, life got very hard from here on out. We got a break when I was 18 with a good harvest🌾🌾 we were able to save up some money. I was able to move out at the age of 21 and into a larger city in Tennessee. It was hard leaving the family as my ma was getting older but my older brother completely took over the farm and even expanded it into a more profitable work. I began working in what I was good at, repairing mechanics 👨‍🔧. I was a hard💦 worker and moved up in my chain of work easily within my town. I dated aroun’ a bit but never settled down with anyone I would write home about for my first few years. When I was 26 I got a call from my ma, my brother was working with some machinery on the farm and got his hand caught in it and heavily damaged. I had to come home and help with the farm, at the time I had attained a high position as a senior mechanic within an auto shop and sometimes worked on the side with repairing electronics. I went home and had to help with the farm for a year, ma wasn’t doing good at all. She passed the next year due to kidney disease. My brother eventually recovered and I returned to Tennessee, I attempted to return to my position but due to the time I was out I had been long replaced. I had to begin to work from the bottom again when I had a client come in, she was the most beautiful woman I ever seen in Tennessee with gorgeous brown hair. Nice to say that we hit it off pretty well, within a few weeks we were dating. I can say that she was one of the best things to have happened to me in my life. At the age of 30 I married her and my first child was on the way then. I had returned to my previous position and bought a nice house near the mountains of Tennessee. At the age of 34 my second child was born. My two kids are now both in high school, one a freshman, another a Senior. I continued my career into more electronics working on computers and fixing them. In 2013 while googling how to fix a small problem with a motherboard I found a strange site named, this website had all the answers I needed and a community always ready to help. I’ve been on the site ever since. As you can see recently, I commented on this thread and some kind stranger gave me silver. 🤠🥺🥺` Edit 12: ` Oh no. It turns out I wasn't pregnant.` Anyway,thanks for the love and support on the edit 9. `Edit 13:` ` Thanks for the gold, kind stranger!` #Amazing comment, where can I get more? ` If you really liked my comment, please check out my other posts, which you can see by clicking my username. I use reddit frequently, so it won’t be too long before my next post! 😜` ` Making these comments is not easy. It’s really hard, actually. I would be grateful if you donated to my patreon (link given above) 🎈` # I want to go the extra mile, how can I help? ` If you’re really willing to go the extra mile, i need a new kidney. Kinda lost my old one back in 1998 when undertaker threw Mankind off Hell In A Cell, and plummeted 16 ft through an announcer's table.` If you were to donate just one kidney a month, you’d get exclusive access to all future comments before everyone else, before I post them! You’ll get the contents of the comment, the ID of the comment I’m replying to, as well as the context of the comment. ` Thanks again!` ` /s`

Fourth Place
I can try, with the proviso that it will be filtered through my own biases. `First, the Harris amalgamations took the former city of Ottawa, the regional government, and a huge pile of other municipalities both suburban and rural and mashed them together to make a city that (as Jim is so fond of pointing out) is geographically HUGE. Stittsville and Cumberland are both part of Ottawa. They’re nearly 50 km apart. ` That amalgamation put a number of factors into play: the need to balance desires, demands, and politics between dramatically diverse communities, merging bureaucracies, trying (and mostly failing) to find effeciencies. That still is not resolved. Which leads to... `Second, the return of Jim Watson. Jim was the mayor of the old Ottawa and scarpered off to a private sector post, then Queen’s Park, while Bob Chiarelli took on trying to make the new city functional. Chiarelli led to O’Brien (and the failed mayoral bid of Alex Munter, which led to his withdrawal — so far — from electoral politics), O’Brien led to a cancelled LRT plan and a chaotic, Trump-before-Trump style of government by chaos. Once the dumpster fire was extinguished (and the Liberal dynasty was nearing its end in Toronto), in came bland, khakis-and-button-down Jim to give people a palate-cleanser after our own mild case of Crazytown. Jim was calm, Jim was reassuring, he wasn’t going to do anything radical, if someone proposed something AMAZING, he’d be the “we don’t need a Cadillac, a plain old Chevy will do...” Jim was gay, but he didn’t ‘act’ gay, or even talk about it. You couldn’t say he didn’t work hard — he didn’t seem to even have a life outside the job. Even if he found too much of the job was going to bake sales, bean suppers, bingo nights, and exhibits where old ladies hung bad art and served crust less sandwiches. ` But Jim has been massively supported by Ottawa’s development community, and they are primarily interested in suburban and rural development. So we’ve seen massive growth outside the green belt. This leads to a number of pressure points: roads get overloaded and there are choke points (River Road from Riverside South, or Barrhaven, for example); urban residents who see their property taxes going up wonder why their tax bills are subsidizing new development servicing, etc. (Yes, I know there are development charges levied for new development charges, but let’s not kid the kidders and think they actually pay for the roads, sewers, water, electrical, etc). `Jim’s a bit of a blue Liberal. And he has assiduously courted the votes available to him in the rural ridings, the ones that might find the BACK OFF GOVERNMENT Randy-Hillier type folks a bit much, but are on the conservative side of things. He also plays a great game of push-pull. So he cultivated the rural / suburban councillors. Folks like el-Chantiry and Hubley have become reliable supporters, and are rewarded with committee chairs, responsibilities, plums for their wards, etc. (They also forget or aren’t bright enough to recognize that they’ll be the ones tossed under the bus if shit goes bad in favour of short-term love) ` Whenever possible, Jim also likes to see authorities delegated to staff. That serves several purposes. He can save himself pesky debates with councillors. Instead, he can have a sit down with the city manager and, you know, get stuff done. And if stuff goes wrong, well, then, he can look irritated and befuddled and put it on those darn bureaucrats. `For a while, all was calm, all was bright. No big issues, no big problems. But the cracks started to show. The airport parkway pedestrian bridge was a shmozzle. Lansdowne was a political football. Glebeites (Jim’s old pals from his days as the old city Mayor, when he lived just south of the Glebe on Pansy Avenue) were (to an extent, accurately) described as self-interested NIMBYs, the court cases were pursued and predictably came out on Jim’s side. But the truth of the matter with Lansdowne was this: where many cities would have done a design competition, Ottawa chose a cozy deal with some of the developers who are great friends of city councillors (and by friends I mean funders), and we got... a condo tower, a somewhat new football stadium, a somewhat new rink, and a truly shit shopping experience that in no way corresponded to the promises.` The new LRT proposal was very different from the one proposed in the old days, and Jim bought in on it hook line and sinker. I don’t think I need to be much more detailed than that on this one. `Jim vehemently opposed safe injection sites in Ottawa and fought tooth and nail against them. When Holland Avenue was rejigged and cyclists rose up, he vehemently disagreed with them... until it was too much for him, and he “fixed it” for them. ` The Salvation Army shelter proposal came, and Watson stickhandled it so that Fleury was the one who ended up (not entirely unfairly) with the egg on his face for that. `One thing that Jim is truly superb at is making potential competition worry enough to drop out of the running. He’s not run against a serious contender in the mayoral race. And it’s my opinion that he has built up a significant level of arrogance. And as time goes on and people get a bit more tired of any government, opposition will coalesce. In the case of Ottawa (and Toronto, and other amalgamated municipalities), what that’s turned out like is progressive councillors in urban wards and conservative ones in rural / suburban wards. ` Here, it began with Leiper and McKenney. McKenney inherited a progressive ward from long-timer Diane Holmes, while Leiper (disclosure, I’ve volunteered and donated to his campaigns) came out of a more chaotic ward where Shawn Little was ... erratic, followed by Katherine Hobbs, who was ... not up to the job, let’s say. Those two have now been joined by Menard, the once-bitten-twice-shy Fleury, Rawlson King and have formed a bit of a caucus that supports each other’s initiatives. That caucus has needed mutual support, because Jim has done his best to throw sticks in their spokes at every turn. ` That’s as much as I have time for.`

2020.02.06 13:26 Handfullofkeys I’m a US citizen aboard the Diamond Princess quarantined off the coast of Yokohama, Japan. AMA!

I’ll post up to date, first hand information in real time regarding the Diamond Princess.
Verification #2!
My blog:
Official Princess Cruise statements:
Edit: Thanks for all of the awards!

To those who have asked, here is our dog that we miss very much! Meet Remy:
Also, to the requests of wedding pictures:
Article I found of a crew member interview:
Update: this post has gotten huge! I’ll reply to everyone as I can, and will post more updates as they come.
Local time: 2/7/2020
08:08 What seems to be a military truck showed up on port? Will update here as I can. There are men in camo that are port side.
09:00 We got fresh towels! To those on the ship, just call your attendant periodically. They are washing towels every now and again and can offer fresh ones.
09:41 Interviewed with a Japanese newspaper. There are now two military trucks and 5 ambulances, all in hazmat suits - imagining more people will be taken ashore for treatment. The food situation has gotten MUCH better - we went to bed hungry and thirsty, but are actually full now.
09:57 41 new cases for a total of 61 cases on board. Lots of news crews, helicopters, and ambulances arriving. No news has been shared from Princess Cruises - we learned from the news. The help desk told us that those who have tested negative will be notified as well.
10:28 Thermometers and gloves will be delivered to every stateroom. Gloves and masks must be worn for open deck time. Temperature must be recorded at regular intervals - any temperature higher than 37.5c must be reported. The cruise line is doing the very best that they can, and seem to have a system in place now that works.
15:29 Just woke up from a much needed nap - lunch came! Still 1-2 dozen ambulances out. Someone in our hallway was taken away. It feels a bit like the hunger games with uncertainty of who will be plucked next. Lunch is really nice today - much like the dining hall meals. Now our only issues are uncertainty and boredom, plus of course confinement and lack of exercise.
16:29 Worthy update.. I think booze is for sale?
16:58 We found out some of our aussie friends were told that they were negative. Huge relief, as they sat next to us for the two weeks of the cruise at dinner!
18:05 Japanese authorities continue to take people off the boat, with about a dozen people to go, looks like. People are getting roughly an hours notice before being removed from the boat. Situation on the boat is good - we’re still stuck to the cabins but making the most of the situation. We’ve actually been busy today with everything online! We’ve interviewed with a japanese newspaper and Chinese news site today, with an American news channel tonight/tomorrow. People have reached out to us to see if we can get supplies delivered. Y’all have been so kind and responsive, we really appreciate it!
18:30 We learned that some people were separated from their husbands today due to being tested positive. Their spouses are not allowed to join them. Wonder if those spouses are being re-tested? Our status has yet to be confirmed.
18:51 Dinner is here! Food situation remains to be great. When I catch up with replies, I’ll work on getting a photo album up.
19:35 Read on our Facebook thread that people are not being reimbursed by travel insurance due to the fact that it’s an epidemic. In one case, a news journalist reached out to an insurer asking about why they weren’t covering us - turns out, they changed their mind and covered them! Hopefully either we can get coverage, OR the cruise line does the right thing for lost wages, lost time, uncertainty, and just in general the situation that none of us can control.
41 new cases with a total of 61. This concludes the 273 originally tested. Happy to say that my wife and I are NEGATIVE!
Nationality breakdown: Argentina: 1 Australia: 5 Canada: 5 Japan: 21 American: 8 Britain: 1
Quarantine official end date is Wednesday, 2/19/2020, unless further developments are made by the Japanese health ministry. The US embassy is working to get us off the boat on this date. Until then, cabin confinement will be a thing, along with visits to the open deck every day on a rotating schedule. Not everyone will get to go each day. Tomorrow, ocean view staterooms can go outside. All interior cabins have been able to see light today. Mandatory masks/gloves will be worn.
The Japanese health ministry has provided us with additional doctors and medical staff to assist with the ongoing situation.
We’ve been provided with even more water, and have two gallons stockpiled of bottled water. The cruise ship is well stocked, and passengers are being well taken care of. Cabin fever and keeping occupied is the major challenge for many of us, though puzzles are being handed out, origami paper, and many movies are being added. The cruise line has really come together to make the best of the situation. Broadband speeds have greatly increased, and are free. They’re also working on in-room activities to keep us occupied. A new food/beverage menu is being developed. They’ve addressed that being confined is a tough situation, and truly are making quality of life better.
Balconies have been addressed - we can go out as we please, but are required to wear masks.
The crew has done an amazing job through extraordinary circumstances, and Princess Cruises has really stepped to the plate today. The captain has been much more vocal today - I can’t imagine the stress that’s being put on him between the company, embassies, the Japanese government, and passengers frustrations.
Tomorrow morning at about 08:00, the Diamond Princess will set sail to sea for normal marine operations (I.e, making water), and will return in the evening back to Yokohama’s daikoku cruise terminal.
I’ll have more updates tomorrow - off to watch a movie with the wife! Things are good, and today, we had BACON. Our clogged arteries are happy! Next adventure starts tomorrow.
2/8/2020 07:13 Replied to many comments/Facebook, about to interview with channel 5 in DFW. There are a couple ambulances out but from our understanding everyone was taken off who was positive last night.
08:21 First person has been taken off the ship. Just finished interviewing with Chanel 5 in DFW - will be on at 22:00 central standard time.
08:44 Noticed a few suitcases and people that look like they’re boarding - I’m thinking that these were the Japanese medical professionals that they were talking about.
08:55 The president of Princess Cruises is here in japan working to make sure the cruise remains comfortable for its passengers. A few passengers reported fevers and are being checked by medical staff - that’s what the ambulances are for. A consoling hotline has been opened for guests aboard the cruise. We will shortly set sail to perform essential marine activities off the coast of japan. We will arrive back to Yokohama on 2/9/2020, 0900. They are warning for rough seas such as the other night. Breakfast has just arrived! Looking good food wise again.
In other news, we talked to some crew and asked how they were doing. They stated that they are hanging in there, but not sleeping too well due to the increased workload. It’s going to be a long two weeks for them - they’re working incredibly hard!
The princess diamond just tooted it’s horn and is now off to sea!
11:31 Deck 8 even room numbers with an ocean view window can go to the open deck now for a bit.
13:48 Confirmed: 2 additional coronavirus cases, total is now 63. One Chinese citizen, and one US citizen. 28 medical staff were let on board (16 doctors, 12, nurses), and clerks. Negotiations are being made to get laundry done as well as staterooms cleaned by attendants for the first time in nearly a week. There is a designated smoking area being negotiated for specific times for people to smoke. Nicotine gum is also available. The Captain is thankful for our cooperation, and quarantine officials are happy with how we are handling procedures. Entertainment services: movies are continuously being uploaded. Education on coronavirus is also posted on our stateroom TV. Medications will be handed out to passengers throughout the day.
14:30 More people allowed onto the decks from the 10th floor balconies, separated on the 7th floor open deck & the 15th floor.
15:40 Just interviewed with NHK and will be on at 19:00 local time in tokyo - it will be broadcasted through japan and internationally. We get to go outside for the first time in 20 minutes!
16:43 We’ll be meeting with the Japanese coast guard at around 18:30 for samples to be taken off the ship, and more medication to be delivered. We are approx. 15 nautical miles away from land. Logistics of sorting so much medication is difficult, but the most critical of medications are being delivered first. Emergency medication is available if needed.
People who now have fevers/coughs are being watched are not allowed to be on the open decks.
It looks like it’s approved for some guests services to be resumed on a rotation basis - a plan is being made for laundry, and stateroom cleaning (thank god.. that toilet needs some help).
Detergents will be delivered for hand washing clothes as well.
We just were able to be outside from 1600-1700. It was amazing to be outside for the first time in six days! Things are really looking up!
Around 20:00 A reminder was made by the captain that there is counseling support available via phone in English, Japanese, and other languages. Japanese coast guard operation underway - medication is being delivered via helicopter to the coast guard boats, then delivered using said boats. Samples are being offloaded. Bandwidth continues to be upgraded, though is choppy at sea. Ongoing communication with the US embassy japan is being made, and the procedures we are following mirrors that required of the Japanese government. The US CDC advises that we are following the safest protocol to prevent viral infections on cruise ships (passengers remaining in staterooms. Embassies and governments from other countries are also in contact. Tomorrow morning, balcony staterooms will finish going outside before interior staterooms start over again on rotation.
08:28 We just got breakfast.. was really hoping for breakfast to be the best meal of the day due to the last two days being pretty decent. Today we’re back to pastries and two boiled eggs. Yikes. Also, now docking to daikoku pier in Yokahama, japan. I count 8 ambulances lined up - either on standby or here for new cases?
08:43 Looks like supplies are here. In the process of docking. Very busy on the ground. Japanese authorities requesting people to not feed the birds croissants.
09:23 Not looking good out there. 14 ambulances, hazmat suits and all. No news has been given as of yet. LOTS of supplies being loaded.
09:42 Medication delivery is a logistical nightmare due to the volume of medications - in one case, a man has been out of anti-hypertensives for six days and is starting to worry d/t chest discomfort. There are now 15 ambulances outside. Supposedly, Princess was charging 18% gratuity for room service, but after being mentioned on Twitter all costs were dropped. There are no longer room service fees. We’ve heard from a friend on the westerdam cruise from holland America that isn’t being allowed to dock. No talk of compensation for lost wages, etc. have been made from Princess, but holland America has issued a 100% refund with a 50% discount on a future cruise. We are hoping that princess will do the same. We didn’t save for the trip expecting a lengthy quarantine.
11:47 Verification of sights outside our room.
12:17 Someone is being loaded into an ambulance, with two lined up behind it it appears. One is pulled up to the ship with a blue tarp over the back.
12:36 Announcement from the captain: several guests are ill, but not related to coronavirus. They will be taken off the ship today. Medications are still being dispensed. Hopefully these I’ll passengers were not related to lack of medication! Laundry services approved, and will be offered on a deck to deck basis. More information to follow when available. No new news from the health ministry of japan.
13:00 Food situation is pretty hard to get down due to taste (not really sure why it’s downgraded quite so much being that 2/7 was so awesome), but they’re loading it up with rice to fill people. Many people who are afraid of the virus aren’t wanting to eat. We’re doing fine - just continuing to look at the bright side of things!
14:32 6 people diagnosed with coronavirus, bringing the total to 69. They are being offloaded along with (correction - 9 people) that have other medical conditions for a total of 15 getting off today. All of these people will be quarantined.
15:35 No new activity other than more allowed out to the open decks, BUT this couple got wine delivered by a drone! Hilarious!
15:50 Mail from the US embassy: to sum, at the end of these 14 days we will be able to leave the boat unrestricted. A field pharmacy with 7 pharmacists is active aboard, and over half of all medication requests will be delivered to guests today. Per CDC, my wife is getting the chuckles with the following rules.. “wear a face mask and keep a distance of 6 feet away from your cabin mate, if you have one.”
18:58 Captain update: a Letter from the president of Princess Cruises will be issued regarding refunds and compensation tonight, as well as laundry powder. Laundry services now available on a rotating basis for small loads. Looks like tomorrow we will be able to get out again due to an updated schedule - we’re really excited to go again! Today has been a good day. Dinner also arrived - not bad, it was tasty! Never going to have rice in my life again though after this quarantine. Send thoughts to stateroom attendants, though. Some of them are getting as little as 3 hours of sleep in this situation. Day five, complete!
21:47 Update before I forget on the ventilation system.. CDC said in a letter sent to us that the ventilation system isn’t a concern in spreading the virus, as there is not really any evidence to show that it’s an issue. Off to bed for us, will continue to update in the morning! Thank you all for the support.
22:22 HUGE UPDATE! 100% refund for all cruise guests and a 100% future cruise credit equal to the price that we paid for this cruise if used before 2/28/2021. All reasonable charges dropped from our onboard folio, and no further costs will be incurred during the quarantine period. All pre/post hotels, transfers, pre-paid excursions, taxes/port, and princess airline travel will be fully refunded. Arrangements will be made for travel home for guests. We already have a delta flight pre-booked that we’ve had moved around. Thank you so much Princess for doing the right thing - this makes being out of work and being stuck away from home much easier for the lot of us! Thank you to the crew for working extra hard to keep us safe.
06:30 Just woke up - got in touch with family/friends. Outside, we see only two ambulances and a van. WFAA interview rescheduled due to breaking news in Dallas - new time will be tomorrow. No new news as of yet.
07:15 A few cars showed up behind the ambulances - nothing too exciting.
07:35 Breakfast is here! Scrambled egg sandwich, a muffin, a pastry, grapes, an orange, yogurt, and two cookies. Cookies for breakfast? I’m in! 😂 “A chocolate chip cookie for breakfast? I am so happy! That’s legit!”- the wife
08:31 6 ambulances w/ some cars are parked outside. No ambulances are pulled up to the boat, so looks like as of now we’re in the clear! More supplies are here now, looks like.
08:54 Found out that a lady in the room right next to us had to be taken off the ship d/t having the virus. She says she’s doing okay.
09:54 A motor coach just pulled up and parked next to the 6 ambulances. Not really sure what the motor coach is here for? Some military vehicles are here as well. About to do a sound check with the mark davis show.
12:30 They just delivered N95 masks, we’re excited to finally be protected! In other news, medications continue to be dispensed, but some people on our Facebook page are taking their medications every other day, some running out of Parkinson’s medication, etc. Rough situation, really hope the logistics are worked out and it’s resolved! There are additional pharmacists onboard now.
12:44 Captain announcement: extended break till 1400 for deck time in order to not interrupt lunch. Some complaints have been made about announcements being too frequent, but we actually think this is perfect - the captain read a comment from a guest - he says “Knowing is better than guessing, and not knowing.” They’re working on having fewer announcements by possibly putting the deck times on a paper delivered to our room. I’d like to thank you all for being so supportive of my wife and I!
13:06 Update that many of you have been asking about: the world health organization has clarified that the end date of quarantine is 2/19. For those closely in contact with newly infected people (for example, roommates of a newly infected person), the quarantine is extended to 14 days from the date of last contact with the infected individuals.
13:40 Food came! Salmon, pasta salad, a roll, and some sort of desert (I’m not actually sure what it was). We’re settling down for a movie now while waiting for our outside time that is coming!
14:40 Rumor has it that there are 60 new cases. We haven’t been given any information as of yet, and I can’t find any news on it yet. HOWEVER this is what we see outside. People are beginning to put on full protection suits - looking like more are likely to be taken off. At this point, we’re kind of just wishing that all passengers would be tested. Again, we have no confirmation as of yet on the new cases.
14:43 more ambulances arriving, sirens on.
14:45 Fire trucks and ambulances have pulled up to the ship where passengers have been offloaded the past few days. PS fire trucks/water rescue are normal in these kinds of operations in japan.
14:51 A news helicopter is on scene with news crews pulled up to the side. Here’s a picture of what seems to be the Japanese military building a tunnel (presumably for passenger offloading) and an ambulance pulling up for pickup.
15:05 The captain has made an announcement. He recognizes that there is lots of activity on the ground. He is waiting for the Japanese health ministry to send an official communication to the cruise line in order to provide accurate information. Meanwhile, it’s almost our turn to go outside. Honestly, we’re considering skipping our outside time to stay safe, but are pretty desperate to stretch our legs.
15:09 The first ambulance has pulled away, and another is pulling up. Spoke with a neighbor a few balconies across from me - he says he’s not going out on the open decks in fear of getting the virus and extending his quarantine.
15:17 A view of what’s going on now.
15:57 Confirmed by captain: 66 new cases of coronavirus on the Diamond Princess. There were 69 total yesterday, bringing the total to 135 today. This was to be expected this early in the quarantine period, as many of these individuals were exposed prior to the quarantine start.
16:30 Just got inside from our time on the open deck. Here are some inside views.
18:29 Captain announcement. Coronavirus cases reduced from 66 to 65, 5 of which are crew members. Total count reduced from 135 to 134. Interior staterooms will get priority for natural sunlight - balconies time will be reduced, however they will still be able to go out onto the open deck from time to time. The captain stated that he noticed some people on the balcony stretching and getting a workout, then teased and said “I have to say.. the port side did better.” Mail services now in place, and instructions will be delivered to our rooms. He addressed the ventilation system - air is filtered & 100% fresh air is being delivered to our staterooms. No reason to worry about the virus being spread through rooms. He thanked and praised everyone on board for their extraordinary patience and support.
18:36 Dinner is here! My wife got pasta and marinara, I got some sort of shrimp on rice. I repeat - when we get home, we’re never having rice again. 😳 We got some lemon bars too!
19:04 Embassy email - confirms that princess/carnival clean their air through and through, and there is no risk to passengers. They provided this video for all Americans aboard.
21:56 Medication has arrived for us, hopefully meaning that most of the ship has received theirs.
23:30 We’ve finished our radio interviews with Mark Davis & WBAP, and winding down for bed. Tomorrow morning we interview with a news station (WFAA), then set your sea for the day to preform vital marine operations (dumping waste, making water). Thank you all again for the support, and I will update in the morning!
Special shoutout to u/CausticSaint - we got a care package delivered to our room from he and his wife.
Words can’t begin to express how thankful we are. WE HAVE TOOTHPASTE!
2/11/2020 06:30 Woke up to get ready for our interview from a DFW news source, WFAA. Shortly after, NBC. No new news as of yet, but we opened the window to find quite a few ambulances! Here’s the view:
08:00 We got breakfast! It came in the middle of one of our interviews, but we got small egg sandwich, one croissant, and a muffin. No fruit or yogurt today. We’re all wondering where the menu is for today - last time we didn’t get a menu was at the start of the quarantine. It’s not just us - the people around us haven’t received a menu either. The help desk is checking with meal services. WFAA will be aired at 10pm central time.
08:26 Current look outside - many more ambulances, people are being taken off the boat now. Nothing confirmed as of yet.
08:46 Looks like we’re fueling up today.
09:00 The sound of sirens is in the air today! Probably about 5-6 going off at once. Truly feels like we’re in a apocalyptic movie at this point with now 32 ambulances parked outside. There are military vehicles with a big Red Cross on them as well - assuming military medical staff.
9:21 Captain states a good morning, and states that we’re ready to face a day of challenges strong and united. He says updates will be given as available. The diamond princess will set sail around 1200, give or take a few hours depending on timing of complications on the ground (loading supplies,, disembarking guests and crew). We will be headed southeast out to sea to make water and dump waste. We will turn around after that to return to daikoku pier. Wind speeds around 55km/hr when out to sea, and the waters shouldn’t be quite as bad this time. They’ve plotted the best possible course to minimize rocking. He reminded us to check our temperature/wear masks, and joked that we are all experts by now. He also reminded us to remain hydrated - we now have quite a bit of water. Every guest has had a chance to send in laundry now. The laundry that my wife and I sent last night should arrive soon. A rotation from deck to deck has been made. He concluded with “let’s tackle this day together.”
11:48 Took a short nap - we were tired from the day before, and the wife had a bit of a headache. Up now - they’re handing out vitamin C tablet bottles to interior staterooms to prevent deficiency.. don’t want anyone getting scurvy! Again, they’re getting priority over natural light so they don’t develop a vitamin D deficiency.
12:00 Captain announcement: the ambulances outside aren’t for new cases. They weren’t done offloading passengers from the previous day. 32 out of 65 have been taken off so far. They are prioritizing disembarkation of guests/crew based on acuity. A small percentage of waste is being taken off by the trucks we thought were fuel trucks currently, giving us more time to stay in port. Our new time of departure is 1700-1800. IT system managers have gotten in contact regarding internet - Princesses goal is to provide the best internet at sea, but being as we’ve had such high traffic these last few days, internet disruptions have occurred. We were wondering about that! They are aware of the issue, and working on fixing it. Medications are nearly finished being dispensed. Any urgent medication is available if needed. The crew continues to receive high praise over social media/letters, and are keeping spirits high. The crew are grateful of the huge support.
12:45 Lunch has arrived! I think Reddit worked - NO RICE! 😍 And it’s really good! Tomorrow’s selections look great too. Princess continues to step up their game to handle this situation. Here’s the food that arrived. I’ll post some pics of food during the first few days of quarantine in a bit.
There is a bus being loaded with people who are disembarking.
PS: Just to clarify on the WFAA interview.. we don’t think the conditions are brutal as stated by news reporters. We think Princess Cruises are doing an amazing job handling the situation, and doing their very best. Food is much better today, we have enough time on our balcony to get fresh air, and have plenty to keep us entertained. People in interior rooms are being given vitamin C, and have priority over open deck time for natural light. Ready for more space to stretch our legs, but we’re doing just fine! We think our interview may have been short due to poor connection. NBC on the other hand did a great job portraying how we’re doing!
16:13 Captain announcement - all 65 coronavirus positive passengers are now disembarked. Several more of our fellow cruisers were taken to local hospitals for shoreside care unrelated to the coronavirus. We’re worried that this may have been related to medication. The Japanese health ministry has provided us with 45 doctors, 55 nurses, and 45 pharmacists, most of which are volunteers. What a huge service! He reassured that the ventilation system is adequate for control of the virus. The internet continues to be upgraded/fixed, and will be up shortly.
Apparently there was a power ranger in a boat entertaining people toddy while they were out on the open decks. People really were enjoying him until the police shoo’d him away.
PS to Japanese readers, happy Founders Day!
18:25 We are completely finished offloading all guests who needed to be hospitalized. We are just about to set sail in a southeasterly direction to preform essential marine operations. According to the Japanese ministry of health, 1850 guests requested medication - all of these requests have been filled. Some medication was unable to be delivered due to brands not being available in Japan - generics are being hunted down. 8 days to go! Dinner is here, here it is! Looks are deceiving. We knew it would be a rough night, but we ended up just heating up some instant noodles that we had. I gave my wife my beef. This is the first time that I’ve seen my wife get visibly upset over food and miss good food. Usually I’m the foodie!
20:53 The Japanese coast guard boats are joining us tonight for if in the case we need assistance. Well underway to sea, and hardly can see land lights at this point. We will get back into Tokyo Bay and to daikoku pier, Yokohama at around 0900. It’s been a long day for us - we’re throwing in the towel early tonight. More updates to come in the morning - good night!
2/12/2020 7:00 Good morning everyone! Woke up and still at sea - looks like we have just two more hours before docking. We were contacted by a lot of people this morning. We’ll interview with CBC, WNBC, and world news radio over the next day or so.
8:00 Breakfast is here! It’s awesome again today! Sausage links, eggs, bacon, muffins, yogurt, fruit - everything! Couldn’t ask for better. It’s going to be a good day!
8:30 We’ve passed through Tokyo bay and are getting ready to dock at daikoku pier again. Not too many ambulances out, just a few waste trucks.
Shoutout to the chick fil a on north belt line road, Irving Texas! The owner contacted me and offered a wedding gift + is providing a few meal nights for a bible study for adults with special needs that my wife and I volunteer at. How cool is that!
8:50 Docked! Unfortunately, they’ve turned the boat around today, so no views of the ground. Not sure how much news of the ground we’ll have - it’ll mainly be announcements. We can see Mt. Fuji from this side though!
9:37 The captain announced that the Japanese health ministry has confirmed 38 additional cases of coronavirus aboard, and they will be notified shortly. These guests will be disembarked today. We now have more bandwidth than any boat in the sea, with the most people connected on any given vessel, ever. He states that we are pushing the limits of technology. Teams all over the world are workingWe also got our laundry back! Around 5AM there was a fire threat alarm that woke us up - it was broadcasted outside of our room, though woke some of us up. Turns out there was a battery malfunction in an electoral locker that caused some smoke. The situation is now under control now, and relatively normal.
10:00 Someone on our Facebook group mentioned that they’ve heard someone loudly crying for two hours in the room next to them. Someone commented, confessing that it may have been them due to having kidney stones the last 24 hours. The awful thing is that she’s afraid to leave the boat for medical treatment, because she’s afraid that her quarantine would start over if she left. Good thing we picked up extra medical staff!
10:15 New N95 masks were delivered! That’s good - the masks we had before we getting kind of.. used! The US embassy emailed us and reassured us that everything is the same as of now. Japanese flags are flying out of a lot of balconies, and it’s a clear day. There’s an awesome view of Mt. Fuji!
11:00 A boat pulled up next to us and waved. They are holding up a sign with a phone number.
12:30 Captain announcement: no new updates on the coronavirus, however, some of our stations are having issues broadcasting due to local interference, but everything else is working great.
PS Here’s lunch! I had a bowl of noodles with it. I gave most of mine to my wife - she loves mashed potatoes, and I wasn’t too crazy about it. Everything has a weird taste on this one, two meatballs well done, one rare. Had some leftover breakfast that did the job! Cracked open a coke to finish the job. The wife and I aren’t big soda drinkers, but they sure hit the spot! Now to watch chopped jr.
13:00 We’ve worked with the Japanese government + others to help us preform essential marine operations. Here’s a boat leaving our ship going out to sea, presumably. Notice at the front of the boat the people in full protective gear.
14:00 Looks like our friends across the hall in an interior room are getting out again today. Interior rooms are getting out about every day for an hour now - this is great! We received an update from the captain via paper saying that an outside time schedule will be delivered soon that way announcements wouldn’t interrupt us so much. Any time an announcement is made, it is repeated shortly after in Japanese.
No big updates. We have another ship next to us helping as previously mentioned. With the balcony facing the sun, it’s getting pretty warm in the room! Views are still pretty, though we can’t see Fuji anymore.
16:50 Captain confirmed 39 cases, with a total of 173 now. There was one officially added. Internet/streaming remains a little iffy, but is improving throughout the day.
17:00 Last group of the day has gone out to the open decks. Not much new today, but it looks like we get to go out first thing in the morning - we’re next!
18:47 We got another email from the embassy. There are 32 total American passengers that contracted the virus, all of which are getting excellent care according to the consular staff of the embassy. Of all confirmed cases in japan, 9 have recovered thus far.
19:00 Captain announcement: There are 26 patients that got offloaded today. The captain reiterated that the ventilation is good - the CDC isn’t worried due to lack of evidence supporting spread of the virus from room to room. He called today “not the best of days” due to the choppy internet, but teams across the globe continue to work hard on it. He thanked us all for the faith we have in the crew, and mentioned that soon we we will be back to everyday lives.
19:45 Apparently people over 75 are randomly being tested. We are wondering if they will test us all - some people aren’t following guidelines, and on open deck time no one seems to enforce the rules. Some people are maskless. If someone contracts the virus let’s say today, it could potentially not show up until 14 days from now. The implications of this could be devastating regarding the spread of the virus! Dinner! Breakfast definitely won today. Here’s a pic!
23:54 Late night today - just finished interviewing with CNBC. Possible interview with a documentary producer tomorrow. We’ve noticed a trend in the media contacting our parents, so that’s not so fun - not sure how the contact numbers are getting to them. Going to head to bed for the night - thank you all for your support!
2/13/2020 00:28
Check this out! Letter to all Diamond Princess crew regarding the quarantine. They will get two months of PTO! Here’s the letter.
“We are deeply grateful and incredibly proud of all of you. We understand that each of you are under great stress in this extraordinary situation, and we hope you are taking some time to speak with your family and friends - as well as reaching out to our Crew Assistance resources.
We have been working to determine how we can best support you once we are past this difficult time. You deserve, and will need, a break. So, we offer you two months of paid time off. This will include your salary and any average gratuities you may normally receive.
We strongly encourage you to use the paid time off for much needed rest. If you decide to leave when the quarantine and later choose to rejoin a ship before the two months pass, you will still receive this extra pay.
In addition, all reasonable charges to your onboard account for this voyage will be cleared. You will not incur any other charges during the quarantine period.
We will also handle your flights to return home and your job will be protected to return for another contract.
We learn more information every day, and we appreciate your patience as we do our best to keep you informed. Your colleagues across the fleet and all of us ashore send you our ongoing support and thanks.” -jan, CEO of Princess Cruises
08:00 Woke up to orange juice, a banana, banana muffin, yogurt, eggs, a croissant. and sausage. Good breakfast again! Looks a bit stormy today - I’m guessing it will rain for the first time since being in port. Here are some pics of dinneoutside.
09:02 Definitely raining. Our outside time is around 9:30 - good thing we bought umbrellas in Hong Kong! No new news as of yet.
9:15 Captain announcement: we’re now we’ll into the second week of our quarantine. He thanks of for our patience. He provided sympathies to those that are ill, their family, and friends. He shared guidance from health authorities - further cases were expected after quarantine began due to pre-quarantine exposure. He reinforced all regulations/procedures, and said that we are all in this together. Masks must be worn any time an external door is opened. He acknowledged that sometimes media is reporting before him, but the captain is working with authorities to provide accurate information as soon as possible. Accuracy and full transparency with us/crew are his top priority. Protocols are still being reviewed by the ministry of health to clean staterooms, as they haven’t been cleaned since 2/3. Linens and towels are still available upon request. Dietary surveys have been passed out, and must be completed by 1pm. Internet has intermittent breaks only due to the rotation of satellites. He says that we are all in this together, and everything is being done to support one another.
9:30 Slight change in plans - all passengers will go to the 7th deck rather than split between the 7th and 15th today due to rain. We will be on the starboard side. In other news, I got a call today that my great grandmother is now in hospice. She fell and broke her hip about a week ago, survived surgery, but is having trouble with rehab. Hoping to get off this boat to see her! She’s 97.
9:40 Seems to be a miscommunication between the bridge and staff - all guests were moved to the port side during this trip outside.
10:30 Just got back from outside - got to visit the port side of the 7th deck today. Very good view of whys going on down below, some of the best pics yet! We got some good walks in, and I tried to have a run. I had to stop pretty soon only because N95 masks were definitely not made to run with! They make it fairly hard to breathe faster than you would normally, making it feel like you can’t catch a breath of fresh air. Can’t wait until we can actually go outside and get a full lung of normal air!

DemeRX has a BOATLOAD of Ibogaine Patents

Deborah Marsh, Lawrence Friedhoff and the DemeRx team have been busy over the last 10 years. DemeRx has 79 Ibogaine related patents that include patient screening procedures, treatment of opioid addiction, nicotine addiction, nociceptive pain, methods of preparation, purification, extraction among others.
Here are a few titles:
Last week ATAI and DemeRx announced a $22 million partnership that will allow them to bring DemeRx’s Ibogaine based treatment to phase II clinical trials for opioid use disorder.
Known for its oneirophrenic and hallucinogenic properties, uncontrolled data from hundreds of patients suggest that ibogaine is effective as both an acute detoxifier and treatment for opioid addiction.
Based on the sheer number of patents, the distinct phases of treatment (withdrawal, maintenance, relapse abatement, etc.) ATAI and DemeRx could provide a top-to-bottom treatment protocol for various substance abuse disorders.
The other notable entity in the Ibogaine space is Universal Ibogaine which is hoping to start clinical trials in Canada and go public this year, though nothing in their marketing copy suggests Intellectual Property assets, I could be wrong.

Gabor Maté Course Offering for Therapists

If I could go back to college and do it over again, I would have microdosed LSD to combat ADHD so that I got better grades so that I could have gotten into medical school so that I could be like Gabor Maté.
His books, lectures, and his whole deal have been a boon to many people struggling with addiction, depression, PTSD and ADHD- he has a beloved audience at his lectures and, from what I am told, holds exceptional Ayahuasca retreats.
For readers going down the psychedelic career path, Dr. Maté is offering a year-long Compassionate Inquiry online course.
Real talk, this is probably something we should all be doing.
The idea of compassionate inquiry has been helpful to me. I am my worst critic and capable of scolding myself with the worst fucking negative self-talk, as I am sure many of you are, too.
Rather than lambast myself repeatedly, when I remember, if I can invoke self-compassion and curiosity about the action, impulse or unskillful reaction, it proves to be far more effective.
Information on the course can be found here. This is not an affiliate link.

OLP Therapeutics

One of the people I have enjoyed speaking with over the last few months is Jim Keim, a long time psychotherapist and foundeCEO of OLP Therapeutics.
Last week, OLP released their first press release that highlights some of the aspects that I believe will set them apart as best in class providers of natural medicines and psychedelic-therapist training.
I know many Trip Report readers are looking into therapy training, you’d be wise to look at OLP's program. Plus it looks like there’s a little surf spot out front of their training facility 🏄‍♀️.
The founding team has experience in all of the required domains of expertise: trauma-based therapy, policy/advocacy, and molecular biology. They are certainly not Crypto-bros who all of a sudden turned into emotionally vulnerable mental health advocates (an increasingly accurate caricature, amiright?)
They are partnering with local groups in Jamaica where their lab and clinical training facility is located. And they're seeking to create natural psilocybin medicine and not a GMP grade pharmaceutical.
"OLP is the first company to commercially offer laboratory-confirmed, exact dosages of natural psilocybin medicine" "OLP has formed a joint venture, Jamaica Medicinal Mushrooms, with a group of Jamaican mushroom cultivators led by Pauline Smith. Smith has a decade of experience in community empowerment and anti-poverty initiatives focused on gourmet and medicinal mushroom cultivation. This partnership ensures local Jamaican communities and farmers will benefit from the exploding international interest in psilocybin mushroom therapies."

Oh 'Ehave: Ehave buys Psytech

"Ehave, Inc. just announced plans to enter the $88 billion mental health market with a letter of intent to acquire 100% of PsychedeliTech, a division of Israel based Israel Cannabis Limited (“iCAN”). Ehave management believes PsychedeliTech could be a leader in the commercialization of research into psychedelics for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses"

"With a large number of contacts in the industry, both Ehave, Inc. and PsychedeliTech intend to create an ecosystem to nurture the development of therapies using psychedelics. The ecosystem includes clinical trials, biosynthesis of psychedelic compounds, E-commerce, CPG’S, supply, dosage, delivery, data, conferences and business intelligence."
Yeah, baby, yeah!
"PsyTech is positioned to be an incubator and discovery platform to elevate psychedelic medicine, foster normalization, and accelerate innovation utilizing Ehave’s Telemetry Engine and Ehave Dash. Ehave’s Dash enables developers, clinicians, researchers, doctors, hospitals, universities and ultimately prescribers of Psychedelic therapy to monitor the effectiveness of treatment, track patient compliance and verify treatment outcomes in a reliable and objective manner through insightful data."
The flagship product suite from Ehave is MegaTeam line of programs that:
"seek to improve attention, learning, and behavior in individuals with ADHD. MegaTeam was designed and programmed with the intention of providing engagement comparable to video game play; throughout the design process, we have utilized experts in children’s digital media."
I wish they were around when I was a kid, all I got to do was run around outside with my friends, breathing fresh air, playing games, and socializing. As a kid with likely undiagnosed ADHD, I could have used a bit more screen time.

The Problem for Psychedelics: They're Exceptional

What is fascinating about this moment is the constraints imposed by the various stakeholders in the psychedelic community. Some factions will be disappointed with the advent of psychedelic medicine.
The War on Drugs has been a huge embarrassing failure.
Portugal is over here like "come on, you can do it." and the emerging science supporting the use of psychedelics to treat, among other things, substance abuse, creates an uncomfortable situation for many psychedelic enthusiasts.

Good Drugs vs Bad Drugs

Here’s the idea, kinda.
Good Drugs come from the earth, there’s no lethal dose, they have a cultural heritage dating back thousands of years and have a utility in enhancing spirituality, consciousness, exploring one's mind, treating disease.
Bad drugs are synthetic numbing agents that have a lethal dose made cheaply, cut with dangerous chemicals and sold by marginalized populations to marginalized populations.
Good drugs are celebrated on Instagram and in bi-weekly newsletters.
The right to use bad drugs is an argument that doesn't make sense to a lot of people.
The question harm reduction advocates want to instill is “why are we championing legalization/decriminalization of psychedelics when the REAL problem is the prohibition of the “bad drugs"????
According to a Chacruna piece from 2018, this has been a long-standing...standoff.
It appears that the harm reduction movement and psychedelic renaissance are not as compatible as people would hope. At its foundation, it seems to be a matter of pragmatism vs idealism and we all know how that one tends to play out.
I hate to envoke a competition metaphor, but the showdown is happening in Oregon as dueling ballot initiatives seek to amend Oregon's laws - one seeks to de-escalate all drug use, while one seeks to empower therapists with the legal use of psilocybin in therapy.
Presidential candidates can be parsed out by there positioning on drug policy:
Pete Buttigieg has a long-standing plan to “eliminate incarceration for drug possession.” A spokeswoman for Joe Biden says that's the former vice president's position, as well. Andrew Yang has a similar position, for opioids, marijuana and psilocybin mushrooms — the latter because his campaigns cites there may be medical benefits. Bernie Sanders would eliminate criminal charges for marijuana and for buprenorphine, a less potent opioid used to treat addiction to stronger drugs. Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchar and Elisabeth Warren would all decriminalize marijuana.
Come on, Joe quit the malarkey.

Psychedelic Opportunity Summit NYC in June

Looks like the recent Economics of Psychedelic Investing conference was a mere warm-up. This June, event organizers are doubling down on psychedelic interest and hosting a full-day event, with more than double the presenters and 10x the price.

Are Investors Ready To Change Their Minds About Psychedelic Drugs?

Perhaps where psychedelic drugs and cannabis most diverge is in their timeline to market. The need for robust clinical trials entails a significant outlay of time and funding. For potential investors, supporting companies to enable their clinical trials was one suggested way to get involved at this early stage of the game.

Vermont seeks Freedom and Unity for Psychedelics and Kratom

Vermont is one of those unique places where hippie and hillbillies peacefully coexist. You will encounter equal numbers of Bernie Bros and MAGA hats. Unfortunately, it is also a state with higher than average heroin and opioid deaths.
In 2017, there were 114 drug overdose deaths involving opioids in Vermont—a rate of 20.0 deaths per 100,000 persons, compared to the national rate of 14.6 deaths per 100,000 persons. The greatest increase was among deaths involving synthetic opioids other than methadone (mainly fentanyl) with 77 deaths in 2017 (Figure 1). Heroin-involved deaths also rose from 10 deaths in 2012 to 41 deaths in 2017
But there have been some strides made with intelligent measures being put in place.
The proposed decriminalization of psychedelics and kratom would continue that trend.
Marijuana Moment writes:
Rep. Brian Cina (P/D) introduced the legislation, which would amend state law to carve out exemptions to the list of controlled substances. Psilocybin, ayahuasca, peyote and kratom would no longer be regulated under the proposal. Cina told Marijuana Moment in a phone interview that he decided to pursue the policy change based on a “belief that I share with many people around the world that plants are a gift from nature and they’re a part of the web of life that humans are connected to.”

Atlantis Rising Issue 9
from AtlantisRising Website

When it comes to questions regarding the actual physical location of the fabled lost civilization of Atlantis, the answers usually depend on with whom you are speaking. Everyone seems to have a favorite candidate for which a convincing case can be made. Whether in Antarctica or the Aegean, the Bahamas or the North Atlantic, intriguing clues are to be found everywhere, and sorting it all out can be confusing.
In his Lost Cities series, real-life Indiana Jones, David Hatcher Childress has written prolifically about ancient civilizations, and his life-long quest for their remains in some of the most remote and dangerous places of the world. Lately he has become something of a regular on national television with appearances on Fox-TV’s Sighting & Encounters, Discovery, and A&E, as well as the NBC specials Atlantis and The Mysterious Origins of Man. In his latest book, Lost Cities of Atlantis, Ancient Europe & the Mediterranean, Childress’ search for obscure evidence has turned up a vast array of fascinating material previously unavailable from any single source. So we asked him to bring some order to the subject and compile us a Top 10 List of possible locations for Atlantis. He agreed. Of the sites listed below some are covered in his book and some are not.

1. AZORES Plato quoting Egyptian Priests through his uncle Solon says that Atlantis was beyond the Pillars of Hercules fought a war with the ancient Mediterraneans, and sank in 9,400 B.C. Atlantis was a land of great seafarers, many elephants and a large plain with a gigantic harbor city of concentric circles. Because Atlantis was said to be a large island in the true ocean that surrounds the continents, it was thought to be in the mid-Atlantic. Atlantis was said to have colonized much of the world and fought a war with Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean. The sinking of Atlantis left only a few scattered islands, it is believed, islands such as the Azores. 2. SAHARA The Sahara Desert, usually the Tassili and Ahaggar Mountains in southern Algeria, Tunisia or both, has been proposed as the actual site for Atlantis. When the French colonized North Africa they soon discovered a lost world existed in southern Algeria and that the ancient harbor of Carthage was an exact miniature of the capital of Atlantis as described by the Egyptian priests, novels such as Atlantide (1923) were popular in France, promoting the idea of Atlantis in the Sahara. The Sahara however, did not vanish beneath the ocean, but rather dried up and became a sandy seabed. Does Atlantis lie beneath the drifting sands and strange stone formations of the Sahara Desert? 3. MALTA Malta has huge ancient structures that are now dated as 9000 years old or older and are said by orthodox archaeologists to be the oldest stone ruins in the world. Malta is now a small rocky island that once had elephants and shows evidence of having been destroyed in a huge cataclysmic wave. Joseph Ellul and others have proposed that Malta was part of a great civilization of the past, possibly Atlantis. Malta was probably connected to other parts of the Mediterranean when a huge wave from the Atlantic filled the Mediterranean, causing the Biblical Flood. Was Malta Atlantis? The island is far too small to have been Atlantis, but it shows that the Mediterranean was a very different place 12,000 years ago. 4. BIMINI With the discovery in 1968 of what appeared to be a huge polygonal stone road in the shallow water off Bimini, Atlantis was thought to have been found in the Caribbean. A lost pyramid underwater staircases, fallen pillars, all seemed sunken ruins indeed. Atlantis could have spread over a large portion of the Atlantic, from the Azores to the Bahamas and possibly even Florida. Recently, Indiana archaeologist Jackson Judge has suggested that Portsmouth, Ohio was the site of Atlantis. 5. SOUTH AMERICA Because of the gigantic ruins in Peru and Bolivia and the evidence that Tiahuanaco was destroyed in a cataclysm. South America has been proposed as the site of Atlantis by number of early writers, including the British colonel Percy Fawcett, who vanished in the jungles of Brazil in 1925 while searching for a lost city of Atlantis. South America does have huge ruins and is across the Atlantic, but it seems to have risen from sea level, rather than sinking into the ocean. 6. ANTARCTICA When Charles Hapgood resurrected the Pin Ri’is map, a map copied from older maps by a Turkish admiral and which showed Antarctica as an ice-free continent, the concept of Atlantis in the frozen polar wasteland was born. Since Atlantis may have been destroyed in a pole shift, Antarctica was probably at a more temperate climate 10,000 years ago, and may hold megalithic ruins such as South America. Antarctica seems a long way away from the Mediterranean with which it fought a war. Also Atlantis supposedly sank beneath the ocean in a day and night. Antarctica rather accumulated ice for thousands of years. Does Atlantis lie beneath the Antarctic ice? 7. CANARYS While no ancient ruins have ever been discovered in the Azores, the mountain tops of the mid-Atlantic ridge, ancient ruins have been discovered in the Canary islands off the coast of Morocco. The native Guanche people of the Canaries had no knowledge of boats when first discovered by Spanish explorers, circular stone ruins have been found on the islands, leading some to propose that the Canaries are a remnant of ancient Atlantis. 8. NORTH SEA The shallow areas of the North Sea off Holland, Germany, England and Scandinavia have been proposed as the site of a sunken civilization that may have been Atlantis. The Oera Linda Book discovered in Holland in the 1700’s spoke of a sunken land off the Frisian islands of Holland. Jugen Spanuth, a German Pastor, took photos of underwater ruins off northern Germany in the early 1950s. Recently, researcher Paul Dunbavin has proposed that the citadel of Atlantis was located underwater between Wales and Ireland, this area being the "Plain of Atlantis" as described by Plato. Major Dutch cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam are 40 feet or more below sea level even as you read this. They may well be the sunken cities of near future. 9. MIDDLE EAST The Middle East and Arabia has some of the largest and most baffling stone ruins in the world. The largest stone blocks in the world are to found at Baalbek in Lebanon. They weigh an amazing 2,000 tons each and are worthy of Atlantean architecture. Similarly, it is said that the Temple Wall in Jerusalem also has a foundation of gigantic stones, similar to Baalbek. Recent authors such as Stan Deyo have suggested that Saudi Arabia, with its strange ruins in the central desserts, is the site of ancient Atlantis. Port cities can be found in the interior of Arabia, and while it is clear that Arabia and the Middle East have many lost civilizations to be discovered, this is obviously not a sunken area at all. The Biblical Flood did sweep over the Middle East at some time in prehistory. Did it destroy Atlantis, or did Atlantis cause the catastrophe? 10. THERA & CRETE According to the tourist literature in Greece, the explosion of the Aegean island of Thera destroyed Crete and at the same time, Atlantis. While Plato is quite explicit in his time frame and location for Atlantis (9,400 B.C. and in the Atlantic), Greek archaeologists seem certain that Atlantis can be found only a few hundred miles from Athens. Thousands of tourists come to Thera every year and drink the local Atlantis wine while they discuss Atlantis. For them, Atlantis will never be found anywhere else.

Part 2 by Arjun Walia January 19, 2016 from Collective-Evolution Website

Advanced ancient civilizations are a big topic of interest among researchers, historians, archaeologists, and scientists.
Every single year we are gifted with a mysterious find that has us questioning the origins of the human race and imagining the cultures which roamed the earth before us. We have found much evidence to suggest that there may have been civilizations in existence before us which were intellectually, and even technologically superior.
That being said, this theory is still thought to be quite fantastical; despite all of the evidence which has been brought to light in recent years to support this notion, it is still largely ignored by the mainstream.
If you are interested in looking at some of this evidence, a great place to start is with author Graham Hancock, in his book titled The Magicians of The Gods.


If you start talking about the lost, ancient city of Atlantis, most people will probably think that you're living in 'la la' land.
Many people are unaware that this city has been seriously studied for hundreds of years.
For example, we can see that it was a subject of significant importance for researchers at the Smithsonian Institution, as emphasized by their Annual Report of the Board of Regents of The Smithsonian Institution for the year ending June 30th, 1915.
In the report, author M. Pierre Termeir, a member of the Academy of Sciences and Director of Service of the Geologic Chart of France, gives a lecture regarding the Atlantean civilization.

He makes a compelling case for further study of this lost city:
After a long period of disdainful indifference, observe how in the last few years science is returning to the study of Atlantis.
How many naturalists, geologists, zoologists, or botanists are asking one another today whether Plato has not transmitted to us, with slight amplification, a page from the actual history of mankind.
No affirmation is yet permissible; but it seems more and more evident that a vast region, continental or made up of great islands, has collapsed west of the Pillars of Hercules, otherwise called the Straight of Gibraltar, and that its collapse occurred in the not far distant past.
In any event, the question of Atlantis is placed anew before men of science; and since I do not believe that it can ever be solved without the aid of oceanography, I have thought it natural to discuss it here, in this temple of maritime science, and to call to such a problem, long scorned but now being revived, the attention of oceanographers, as well as the attention of those who, though immersed in the tumult of cities, lend an ear to the distant murmur of the sea.

You can read this full report here, starting on page 219.
In his lecture, M. Termeir goes on to present zoologic, geographic, and geologic data to support the existence of the lost Atlantean civilization. Not only that, archaeological discoveries on the ocean floor have also raised some questions
Not only that, archaeological discoveries on the ocean floor within the past decades have also raised some questions…

Plato's Description of Atlantis

Plato, the ancient Greek philosopher, provides a description of Atlantis in his dialogue Critias), which was never completed.
The following is a summary of his depiction, these are a few of many points I am taking from Manly P. Halls, The Secret Teachings of All Ages
Atlantis was inhabited by 'earth-born' and 'primitive' human beings. One of them was wooed by the god Poseidon, who interbred with the human beings, and they eventually bore five children. This interbreeding between gods and humans is a common theme in many historical texts found throughout the world.The land was divided into concentric zones of land and water. Two zones of land and three zones of water surrounded the central island, which had warm springs of water and cold springs of water.Atlantis became an established country, with a wise government and an industry that sprung them to advanced technological heights - beyond even what we have reached today.Atlantis had limitless resources, wild animals, and precious metals, and was heavily populated.Atlantis was full of large and beautiful palaces, temples, docks, and a network of various bridges and canals that united different sections of the kingdom.White, black and red stones were used in the construction of public buildings. "They circumscribed each of the land zones with a wall, the outer wall being covered with brass, the middle with tin, and the inner, which encompassed the citadel, with orichalc.
The citadel, on the central island, contained the palaces, temples, and other public buildings. In its center, surrounded by a wall of gold, was a sanctuary dedicated to Cleito and Poseidon." Atlantis had a number of gardens, full of hot and cold springs. There were countless temples, public baths, and exercise facilities for both man and animal.The part of Atlantis,"facing the sea was described as lofty and precipitous, but about the central city was a plain sheltered by mountains renowned for their size, number, and beauty.
The plain yielded two crops each year, in the winter being watered by rains and in the summer by immense irrigation canals, which were also used for transportation.
The plain was divided into sections and in time of war each section supplied its quota of fighting men and chariots." Atlantis was massive, ruled by multiple kings who all had control over their land. Their relationships with the other kings were governed by an original code of ethics that was engraved by the first ten kings. "The chief laws of the Atlantean kings were that they should not take up arms against each other and that they should come to the assistance of any of their number who was attacked."

The Downfall of Atlantis

These are the essential points Plato makes about Atlantis.
He described it as a great and powerful empire, almost magical, and said that this was the same empire which attacked the Hellenic states.
He attributes the power and glory they tasted after this venture to their eventual demise, writing that the love for these ego-driven desires that soon developed among Atlantean kings "lured" them from "the pathway of wisdom and virtue."
"Filled with false ambition, the rulers of Atlantis determined to conquer the gods into his holy habitation and addressed them. Here Plato's narrative comes to an abrupt end, for the Critias was never finished."
Plato also tackles the subject of Atlantis in his Timaeus), writing of a story told by Solon - who himself is said to have heard the story in Egypt, passed on to him by a priest via hieroglyphic inscriptions in a temple in Sais - in which a violent cataclysm sank the continent.
Thus, the Island of Atlantis completely disappeared. (source)
"A technologically sophisticated but morally bankrupt evil empire - Atlantis - attempts world domination by force. he only thing standing it its way is a relatively small group of spiritually pure, morally principled and incorruptible people - the ancient Athenians.
Overcoming overwhelming odds…the Athenians are able to defeat their far more powerful adversary simply through the force of their spirit. Sound familiar?
Plato's Atlantean dialogues are essentially an ancient greek version of 'Star Wars'." Ken Feder, professor of archaeology, "Frauds, Myths and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology."

The Egyptian connection is also interesting to bring up here because Crantor, another ancient Greek philosopher, asserted that the Egyptian priests declared the story of Atlantis to be written upon pillars which were still preserved circa 300 B.C.
Manly P Hall has noted that, before this cataclysm, a portion of the population left and did not succumb to the egoistic tendencies which apparently led to downfall of Atlantis.
Was the philosophic, religious, and scientific knowledge of Atlantis passed on? There are many similarities between the reported teachings of Atlantis and those of other cultures, such as the Mayas of Central America.

According to Manly P. Hall, from the Atlanteans,
"the world received not only the heritage of arts and crafts, philosophies, and sciences, ethics and religions, but also the heritage of hate, strife, and perversion.
The Atlanteans instigated the first war; and it has been said that all subsequent wars were fought in a fruitless effort to justify the first one and right the wrong which it caused."
"Before Atlantis sank, its spiritually illuminated Initiates, who realized that their land was doomed because it had departed from the Path of Light, withdrew from the ill fated continent.
Carrying with them the sacred and secret doctrine, these Atlanteans established themselves in Egypt, where they became its first divine rulers.
Nearly all the great cosmologic myths forming the foundation of the various sacred books of the world are based upon the Atlantean Mystery Rituals." (source)

One of the most interesting parts of this story, to me, is the fact that this place is often remembered as a place of glory, light, and abundance, which it was.

But they were not immune to the dangers of avarice, either, as H.P. Blavatsky makes clear:
"Under the evil insinuations of their demon, Thevatat, the Atlantis race became a nation of wicked magicians.
In consequence of this, war was declared, the story of which would be too long to narrate; its substance may be found in the disfigured allegories of the race of Cain, the giants, and that of Noah and his righteous family.
The conflict came to an end by the submersion of the Atlantis, which finds its imitation in the stories of the Babylonian and Mosaic flood." (source - Part II)

A very interesting Video/narrative by Manly P. Hall it's worth listening.

Thank you for reading :)

2020.01.04 07:27 DokiDokiHermit Still on Windows 7? Don't want Windows 10? Consider switching to Linux (and specifically, Ubuntu). A Guide.

Any actions taken as part of this guide are solely at your own risk - unfortunately there is no way to account for every hardware configuration or error that may potentially crop up. BACK UP YOUR CRITICAL DATA BEFORE DOING ANYTHING
On the 14th Jan 2020, official Windows 7 support ends for most users. This means if you run Windows 7 beyond that date, you're no longer going to receive security and system updates, which will leave you increasingly vulnerable to viruses, malware and system failure. Depending on how critical your data is and how often you back up - if at all - there's a potential you can lose everything.
This is a somewhat opinionated but no-bullshit guide for those of you still on Windows 7 who really don't want or won't move to Windows 10. Aside from my own additions, it's going to reference a lot of great guides and advice written by other people, but conveniently collected in a single place. It's crazy, but it might just work.
Have you considered... Linux? Specifically, Ubuntu.
No, hear me out. Because I'm going to start (and save you a lot of time) by telling you why you SHOULDN'T switch to Linux. If any of the criteria listed apply, then:
The guide is broken into the following sections, if you want to jump to the points that are relevant. If you want to get straight to it, go to (4):
  1. Why shouldn't I go with Linux?
  2. Why should I go with Linux?
  3. Why Ubuntu?
  4. What's involved in switching?
  5. Installation of Ubuntu
  6. Tips for new users using Ubuntu
  7. Gaming on Linux
  8. Alternative Software
  9. TL;DR or The Conclusion
  10. To do list for the guide

1. Why shouldn't I go with Linux?

If you:
  • Don't feel comfortable installing an operating system and you don't have someone that can do it for you;
  • Have someone that helps you with all your IT-related activities who is not familiar with or dislikes Linux (ask them);
  • Are big into multiplayer games. (There are exceptions here, discussed in more detail in the Linux Gaming section);
  • Use multiple game clients and have a lot of games on platforms other than Steam;
  • Are into any sort of VR;
  • Absolutely need Outlook and refuse to consider any other mail client, like Thunderbird;
  • Use a VPN provider that doesn't have a Linux version and aren't willing/able to change;
  • Are subscribed to multiple video streaming services other than Netflix and watch these on your PC frequently;
  • Use Photoshop, Premiere, 3D Studio Max - actually, if you have any Windows software that you are locked into due to muscle memory, experience and/or professional requirements and that have no Linux version. (There are, however, often a Linux alternatives for a lot of these);
  • Require assistive technologies, such as screenreaders. While Ubuntu comes with several built-in assistive tools, there's a lot of specialised assistive use cases, tools and hardware that don't work on Linux and have no comparable alternative;
  • Want to be able to buy whatever piece of hardware that takes your fancy without researching it and expect them to work out the box with zero hassle. Especially niche and specific hardware like flight controllers, sound boards and so on;
  • Use iTunes extensively for your media library and/or interacting with your iPhone;
  • Have a large archive of Microsoft Office documents that use complex formatting, macros and/or formulas that you refer back to frequently.
  • have the worst-case scenario: rely on legacy or ancient software or hardware you're not sure you have the installation media for anymore, can't find a replacement, can't download it and it doesn't work on Windows 10. In this case, you're going to have to keep that Windows 7 box around and it's even more imperative that you make sure it's not accessible from the web or network. Start looking at moving to a more modern equivalent of it AND converting your work to a format that'll be accessible.
Some of this stuff you can work around with some effort, but it's more likely going to be more trouble than you're willing to put up with. And that's fine; Linux can't help everyone. The more of these that apply, the more certain you can be that you shouldn't consider Linux and should just go with Windows 10, unless you're willing to ~sacrifice~ compromise.

2. Why should I go with Linux?

Because whether you're a general user, a gamer or a specialised user with niche interests or requirements, Linux can provide you the same experience you're getting now with some already stated exceptions. In many ways, it's better - it's free, it's generally runs better on older hardware than Windows, it's relatively more secure due to a small user footprint and you'll have a huge, vetted library of free software that you can access. There are some applications - older Windows software and games, for instance - that don't work on Windows 10 but do on Linux, thanks to projects like Wine and Proton. It can 99% of the time update itself without interrupting whatever you're doing.
That being said, it's not perfect. You will lose some things. You will need to learn new ways of working with your PC. This is inevitable. That's the cost of switching.
Which is not to say Windows is without a cost. Unlike Windows, none of this functionality comes at the cost of your privacy and freedom. Linux will let you configure it as you like, and dive into the nitty-gritty settings to fine-tune it further. It will not try and trick you into creating yet another online account to use it. Aside from a few missteps (Ubuntu and Amazon, for one), it keeps its nose out of your business. It does not come with a unique advertising ID that links your multitude of online and offline interests and programs into a nice, tidy, profitable pack of data to be shared with "trusted third-parties". It does not serve you ads in a product you paid for. It does not try and push you into multiple online services.
In short, it does not suffer from any of the privacy concerns of Windows' future.
Now, I know people are going to throw snark about lead-and-tin alloys, their pliability and how easy that makes it to fashion headgear, but please note I said "future"; while they're not necessarily prying now, your operating system - and for almost everyone, that means Microsoft - has a very privileged position in your life as far as personal data is concerned. Any time you search in the file manager, every word you write and document you save, your budget calculations, every photo you view and program you use, every voice command you give Cortana, Windows - and by extension Microsoft - knows about. And there's nothing in their Terms of Service that stop them from starting to collect more detailed data if they so choose.
It's not a question of whether you prefer Windows 7 over 10 - Windows 7 got the same telemetry features as Windows 10 ages ago. Rather, ask yourself if you're happy with Microsoft's evolving business model, one that is shifting more and more of your content online and is intricately and opaquely tied to your personal data? If you're not, you're not alone: Holland isn't happy. Germany's not too thrilled either. There are legitimate reasons to be wary of Window's market dominance and increased level of embedded user analytics. Linux offers you an alternative.

3. Why Ubuntu?

Ubuntu LTS is by far the most commonly used desktop Linux distro and the one with the widest support by software developers and hardware manufacturers involved in Linux. If you're searching for solutions, you'll mostly find Ubuntu ones. Lastly, Ubuntu's LTS versions are supported for long periods of time: 18.04, which we'll be recommending, is supported until 2023, while the next version coming out in April, Ubuntu 20.04, will be supported until 2025.
One of the things you'll quickly learn about the Linux community is that someone will ALWAYS suggest a different Linux distro. In this case, it'll probably be Linux Mint, which aims to be a newbie-friendly Linux. It's based on Ubuntu, is similar to Windows 7 and will MOSTLY work the same as Ubuntu. I still suggest Ubuntu, but whatever, follow your heart.
To keep this guide as approachable as possible, and to have access to the widest range of help and support, I decided to focus on Ubuntu. Anything other than these two and you're just making things harder for yourself as a new user. You can always switch once you get a feel for how things work.

4. What's involved in switching?

I promised you a no-bullshit guide, so I'm going to cut straight to it. Take your time with all of these steps, do them properly, and you shouldn't have a problem.
First step: back up all your important documents, photos, email, games - whatever is important to you, and preferably somewhere external to your machine. This is just good advice regardless of whether you're switching to Linux or not. Always have a backup.
If you're a gamer, check out the following guide by PC Gamer's Jarred Walton on how to back up your games across multiple clients.
While you're backing up, install Thunderbird (Mozilla's open-source mail client) and copy your mail over to it. You'll have a much easier time doing this in Windows than in Linux to start. Thunderbird can automatically pull your mail from Outlook if installed on the same machine. Then follow the steps here for backing up your Thunderbird profile. You'll restore this in Linux later. Make sure you have your mail account details.
Get hold of your Windows 7 serial key. If it's physical media, like a DVD, then check and make sure the key is in the box or on the disc. If it's a laptop that came with Windows 7 preinstalled, it's usually a sticker on the specific laptop. You'll need this if things go awry and/or decide Linux is not for you.
Check the minimum specs for Ubuntu 18.04.03 here. If your system doesn't meet them, you're going to have a bad time regardless of whether you go with Ubuntu or Windows 10 (Windows 10 minimum requirements are bullshit, btw. 1Gb Ram, 1Ghz processor? I challenge anyone to link me to a Windows 10 video running on those specs where it performs acceptably.). There are lightweight alternatives if you can't afford a new PC, (Lubuntu, for instance), but upgrading your PC should be your first step in this case.
Here comes the arduous bit. Make a list of your current hardware, software and services that you use frequently, make sure you have the installation media for the critical pieces of software you use (Don't expect to be able to just copy/paste the applications you have) and do a search on whether they run on Linux. I'd recommend following the "Software" section in this guide on Migrating to Linux by PBLKGodofGrunts]
A lot of the Linux software alternatives, such as LibreOffice and GIMP, are available for Windows as well. Consider downloading those that interest you to try out in Windows and get a feel for how they work.
Ultimately, to echo the advice you'll find that you can either run it, have an alternative or just can't switch. That's okay; Linux can't help everyone.
Download the Ubuntu LTS 18.04.03 distro. The "LTS" means it's a long-term support version - you won't have to think about this exercise for the next three years if you're lucky. Ubuntu LTS 20.04 is coming out in four months, which'll be supported until 2025, but since most of the focus is still on 18.04, you're better off sticking with it for now.
Whichever you choose, you'll have to write it to a DVD or USB. If it's a DVD, use whatever you normally use to write DVD ISOs. If you're going to use a USB, here's a guide to doing that.
Did I mention to back-up your important data? Back-up your important data. Double-check that it's all there. If you want to take an extra precaution, you can use Clonezilla to clone your current OS drive. It's not necessary, but if things go bust, Clonezilla allows you to restore your PC to precisely the way it was before you started without needing to install Windows from scratch. However, Clonezilla can be a bit daunting if you're not technically inclined. Check out this somewhat out-of-date video by cButters Tech for a general idea of what's involved.
Lastly, try running Ubuntu as a Live CD/USB first. This will allow you to run Ubuntu as if it were installed, but without making any changes to your current installation. Please keep in mind that the Live is not indicative of performance... it will run slower than if it was installed, as it has to read everything off the DVD or USB stick first and load it memory. The important thing to check here is that it's picking up all your hardware, that it's displaying on your screen correctly, that all your drives are available, and so on.
Live USB should perform better than a Live DVD. Check out the "Okay, it's installed/Okay, I'm running the Live CD. What tips do you have for using Ubuntu?" section to get an idea of what you should be checking.

5. Installation.

You've done all the above, triple-checked your backups and either decided that you can't make the jump or you're ready.
However, before you begin installing, you have one last decision to make.
There's a lot people that suggest dual-booting - that's where you keep Windows around and just install Linux alongside it. This is often proposed as a safety net and a means for people to have the best of both worlds. I don't, for a couple of reasons:
  • If you are going to dual-boot, you'll need to update to Windows 10 anyway, and if you're going to do that, why bother with Linux in the first place?
  • Data will be spread between two operating systems. Instead of backing up and maintaining one OS, you'll be maintaining two. It's doable but a PITA.
  • You're sabotaging your efforts, and your switch to Linux will likely fail. That's not a statement on Linux's capability or ease of use. A lot of things are easier on Linux - but they won't be at first. You probably have years of Windows use ingrained in you; you've come to expect things to work they way Windows works. That's not ease, that's familiarity; that's a boiling frog. And the moment something throws you a challenge in Linux, the temptation to just "do it" in Windows will be too great. And the more you do that, the more running Linux will seem like a chore than a choice.
  • If you absolutely have no option but to run Windows 10, do it in a virtual machine - you get the benefits of dual-booting but with the bonus of limiting Windows 10 to a virtual environment where access to the rest of your system (and personal data) is restricted while allowing you to run your non-negotiable applications (other than games or any intense 3D applications) just fine.
If you decide to dual-boot, you'll need to find a recent guide that covers this. Typically, it's best to update to Windows 10 first, then follow the guide to dual-boot Ubuntu. None of the guides I found seemed good for beginners, so I'm willing to take suggestions from the comments.
If you take my advice and simply dive in, installing Ubuntu on your machine will be a painless process: just follow the steps here in a beginner's guide written by Jason Evangelho and you should be fine.

6. Tips for new users using Ubuntu?

Things that you should do only once Ubuntu's installed are prefixed with an [+]. Otherwise, the tip applies to both installs and Live demos:
  • Power off, log-out and running taskbar applications will be in the top-right of the screen by default.
  • To search, press the Windows key on your keyboard. This'll bring up Ubuntu's search bar. You can use this to find applications, folders and system settings.
  • In the File Manager, your Home directory will be where your primary OS and applications will typically be installed, while the Other Locations will list additional hard drives (usually your additional storage drives). By default, Ubuntu does not actually mount the drives in the "Other Locations" section. Clicking on any of them, however, will automatically mount them. If you want to learn more about the general structure of Ubuntu's file system, you can do so here.
  • Ctrl+Alt+T will bring up the terminal. The terminal is where you'll often be sent if you're attempting to diagnose a problem, perform specific tasks or install specific tools/software. Check yourself before your wreck yourself before copy-pasting commands from strangers on the 'net. Be super cautious of any command that involves "sudo" and "rm".
  • The default office suite for Ubuntu is LibreOffice. Try it out: see if you can open a couple of your documents, like spreadsheets and Word docs. You might be pleasantly surprised. Writer is the word processor, Calc is for Spreadsheets. Formating on complex documents will likely be broken. Don't save any of these at this point.
  • In fact, open up a couple of common files you normally use - images, documents, compressed files, music, videos and so on. Get a feel for how it works, what opens and what doesn't. Sometimes, you'll need to install some software first before it will work.
  • Check the list of alternative software for some suggestions on what to install if you seem to be missing something.
  • Plug in your phone and see if it detects it and you can access your files. If it's Android, you should be fine.
  • You'll notice that some commands - like updating - require you to enter your password again. This is a security feature similar to when Windows ask you to run a program as administrator or with elevated privileges. If you didn't initiate the command that brought up the password request, be cautious about entering it in.
  • [+] Change your desktop preferences and move the application bar to the bottom of the screen. By default, Ubuntu puts it on the left-side. Hey, maybe you'll like it like that! This was the one Windows habit I was never able to shake.
  • [+] Try and store your data in the pre-defined folders (Music, Videos, Documents, Pictures). You don't have to, but you'll make your life a lot easier doing so.
  • [+] Search for and create a shortcut to the Software Updater. This allows you to quickly check for and install Ubuntu updates.
  • [+] Likewise, create a shortcut to the Ubuntu Software Centre. To start with, you'll want to stick to installing applications from the Centre. These have been specifically tested to work on Ubuntu and will 99% run without a hitch. You'll be able to remove applications from here as well.
  • [+] Speaking of the Centre, Ubuntu comes preinstalled with an Amazon launcher. Use this time search for it and remove it. Or don't, it's up to you.
  • [+] Sometimes, you'll see there's two versions of a piece of software in the Centre. This is most likely due to there being a Snap version of it. Snaps are self-contained versions of the software that are usually the most up-to-date; however, they can run erratically or not have access to some things on your system, like fonts. I'd stick with the ubuntu-bionic versions for best compatibility.
  • [+] If you're a gamer, change your graphic drivers so you can get reasonable performance. For Nvidia, simply search for the Software & Updates application, open it, select the Additional Drivers Tab, and check whether you're using the Nvidia Driver. You'll want to select the one that's listed as proprietary and tested. AMD's a little more complicated and I profess to having little experience with it. I'll happily take advice from the comments in this instance.
  • [+] When downloading some games or applications specifically for Linux, you'll often get a .Deb file or a script. A deb file can often be run as is by double-clicking in Ubuntu; you can read more about them here. Scripts often need to be run from the terminal and made to be executable. You read more about that here. Again, same safety check applies to running anything you download from the web.

7. Gaming on Linux

If you're a gamer, I'd recommend the following the guide by PBLKGodofGrunts on the /linux_gaming subbreddit. But to summarise...

The Good News

Thanks to Valve's involvement in Linux through Proton and the efforts of the Wine team, Linux gaming has never been better. It's now possible to play many Windows-only games with no hassle and minimal performance loss. Just a few examples of recent games that run just fine on Linux are the Resident Evil 2 remake, Sekiro, Halo: Master Chief Collection (single-player and custom multiplayer games), DOOM, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Risk of Rain 2, Total War: Three Kingdoms, and more; you can even toss a coin to all of your Witchers. To get an idea of games that run on Linux, you can visit ProtonDB, Wine AppDB or Lutris and search for your desired game. If you're primarily a single-player gamer, the transition should be mostly painless.
Another amazing development is the number of open-source implementations of older games game engines that allow for playing of classic and retro titles on modern hardware, (such as DevilutionX for Diablo 1)often with improvements, bug fixes and quality of life improvements, ensuring they'll be able to run into the future.
However, the most critical development is that the number of developers and platforms that provide and support native Linux games has increased significantly. Feral Interactive publishes several AAA Linux ports, numerous indies now provide a Linux version, and store fronts like GOG and provide an alternative with DRM-free games.

The Bad News

Despite all of this, gaming remains one of the biggest hurdles to adopting Linux.
If you're into multiplayer gaming, you're out of luck. While many multiplayer titles do work on Linux (LoL, Dota 2, CS:GO, TF2, Rocket League, Warframe, Overwatch, Starcraft II, World of Warcraft, Eve Online, Elite: Dangerous, Monster Hunter:World and so on), many more don't - Fortnite, some Call of Duties, Apex Legends, PUBG, Battlefield, GTA Online. Essentially, anything with an anti-cheat is likely NOT going to work, and there's always the risk that playing a Windows multiplayer game will get you banned due to anti-cheat measures that dislike any whiff of Linux. My suggestion is check which games you play and go from there.
Unless you're using Steam, running other launchers is complicated and prone to constant breakage without continuous effort and maintenance. Epic, Origin, Uplay and GOG Galaxy can all run on Linux with some effort. Lutris does sort most of these out, but you'll need to follow the instructions here, which means your going to have to install Wine first.
Some games simply don't work, and there's no solution for it.
Some of the latest developments aren't going to be available to you. VR is tiny on Linux, and you'll likely lose access to most of your VR software and experiences.
Despite being fairly technical already, many gamers do expect things to "just work". Here's a list of things that require some effort to get working correctly:
  • Super-sampling is out. Not entirely, but it's more complicated than Windows.
  • Access to things like custom shaders and injectors are also going to be limited. Mods can be more complicated or, in some cases, not available.
  • You'll lose some of the benefits of your Gsync/Freesync monitors, since the two tech don't work that well on Ubuntu's standard display compositor. This will change once Ubuntu shifts to Wayland.
  • Things like community game patches are often aimed at Windows, with no Linux alternative.
Most importantly, AMD and Nvidia graphic cards are handled very differently on Linux when compared to Windows. Ubuntu uses an open-source driver by default - this is alright for general use but terrible for games and 3D applications. To get decent performance, you'll need to install their respective drivers.
Nvidia's latest Linux drivers are made available in Ubuntu directly. However, this is just the drivers: Nvidia's GeForce Experience isn't available on Linux and you're going to lose access to all of its tools. That means no Ansel in many cases, no DSR, no predefined gaming configs and no ShadowPlay (Although OBS offers a decent alternative in this case). See the Tips section above on how to install it. On the plus side, the installation process is a breeze and Nvidia's performance is fairly solid.
AMD benefits from much better open-source drivers and active support from AMD, but unfortunately suffers from delays for support of their most recent cards and a fairly complicated install process . AMD uses the MESA Driver, combined with Valve's ACO shader compiler, to deliver performance boosts. Installing these drivers can be a complicated, multi-step process. I'm sorry I can't help you on this; I'll happily take someone's advice on getting this working in Ubuntu LTS and include it in the guide.

8. Alternative software

This is a quick and dirty guide to equivalent software for Windows applications in Linux.
  • Antivirus software: This may seem counterintuitive, but for the most part Linux does not require any sort of anti-virus software. While viruses for Linux exist, the number of viruses and such that target the Linux desktop specifically is tiny compared to Windows. You can read up about it here.. That being said, if you are concerned there are several tools available for detecting both Windows and Linux malware on the same page. Follow good internet hygiene, don't open suspicious links/mails and think before just randomly following command instructions on the 'net.
  • Microsoft Office: LibreOffice. Or you can access Office365 online.
  • Adobe Photoshop: GIMP, Krita
  • Adobe Premiere: Blender
  • 3D Studio Max: Blender
  • IllustratoCorelDraw: Inkscape
  • Xsplit: OBS
  • Windows Media Player: VLC
  • Basic Audio Editor: Audacity
  • Audio Mixing: Ardour, Mixbus
  • Adobe Reader: While there are several PDF readers on Linux you can use, almost none of them play well with Adobe PDFs with advanced features. You're better off sticking with what comes with Ubuntu, and if it doesn't work, open it up in a browser.

9. TL;DR or The Conclusion

Switching to Ubuntu is possible and relatively safe if you do some research on which apps/games/software/hardware you use will and won't work on Linux first, you BACK UP YOUR IMPORTANT DATA before doing anything and don't expect a 1:1 experience with Windows. It's all dependent on your flexibility, technical experience and willingness to learn and compromise.
If you're not, Windows 10 is a perfectly acceptable choice to upgrade to: you'll benefit from improved security compared to Windows 7, a larger selection of hardware and software and will have to put less effort to make everything work at the cost of your privacy and some ads.
If you have legacy software or unsupported hardware that doesn't run on either, you're kind of screwed. I'd keep the Windows 7 box around, make sure it's disconnected from all networks (for your sake as well as others) and start making emergency contingency plans to find a modern alternative.
I know that people are going to take issue with some of the difficulties I raised, and suggest they're really not dealbreakers. Before you post, consider whether a new user coming from Windows 7 who'll be using Linux probably for the first time in their life will have the knowledge, gumption and willingness to perform sometimes complex technical steps in an operating environment they're unfamiliar with and where it's much, much easier to really break things.
Feel free to post criticisms and suggestions in the comments. If there's some good advice worth including, something needs further clarification or I need to correct something, I'll edit it in with credit.

10. To do list for the guide

  • I'd really like to add a section on assistive technology and software that works on Linux, but as I don't use any of it, I feel my research would be limited and miss vital pieces. If you have advice on this, let me know.
  • A good, up-to-date and easy-to-follow guide for dual-booting.
  • Instructions on how to install AMD drivers correctly on Ubuntu.

2019.12.22 01:18 HyBear HAL changing booking from accessible cabin to non accessible after final payment - what can we do?

Background: My SO & I were taking her mom on a Panama Canal cruise on Holland America in March 18, 2020. Last week, final payment was processed on our CC. Today, our travel agent called us to tell us that Holland contacted them to inform of a change of cabin. Her mom needs a walker or wheelchair and needs an accessible room with a walk in shower. Months ago, she was sent an email to complete a disability detail for, which she completed online. The form didn't have a date stamp validating a date received, so Holland is apparently saying that the form was not completed (even though it could have been done up to 45 days before sail).
I have an email from the agent with the booking # and cabin 6108 which is accessible cabin. When I log onto (a website that may be worse at accessing booking info than RCI's site) it now shows cabin 6087 - not accessible, and even moved from port to starboard side. If our request for a specific cabin class cannot be honored, I feel that at least my SO's mom, if not all of us, would be due full payment back. How can they process full payment on 12/12, 90 days before, and then a week later, inform us of this change? Is there a resource our family can use to contest this if our agent and HAL cannot give us an acceptable solution (a conference call scheduled by the agent is happening Monday).
Thank you in advance

2019.12.07 02:01 chrisg750 Highway robbery in NJ! EZ Pass needs to be hacked!

Highway robbery in NJ! EZ Pass needs to be hacked!
Does anyone else hate EZ PASS and the way they run their business? Can I vent? As a lifelong NJ resident, I have a right to vent so I'm going to vent...
- One of the only things about EZ PASS that I could get excited for is driving through the GW Bridge, Holland or Lincoln Tunnels, pull up to attendant and then yell, "CARPOOL!" to the cashier and them charge me $6.50 instead of $15 at the toll that gets paid through my EZ PASS. Most people that I know didn't know that prior to me telling them a few years ago. I do Lyft and Uber part time and a passenger told me about it... I was so excited, yet pissed at the same time that EZ PASS does not advertise this or mention this anywhere! It could amass to a huge savings for many everyday drivers going into NY!
First complaint!
- NJ Turnpike Authority hides behind EZ PASS. The real perpetrators are the Turnpike Authority along with the Port Authority. Does the average driver know that Turnpike Authority runs that shit show of a mess called EZ PASS?
-They never, ever advertise or market the discounts and savings!! With all the money they get, it's a damn shame! Have you ever seen an EZ PASS commercial or something put out to help people with common questions? I have never..
-They will be taking away the CARPOOL option as shown below (received this email today):
This is their reasoning as per their site:
\ Due to the implementation of cashless tolling, the Carpool Plan was discontinued at the Goethals Bridge as of September 2019, at the Outerbridge Crossing as of April 2019, and at the Bayonne Bridge as of February 2017.* The Carpool Plan will no longer be available for use at all Port Authority crossings starting January 5, 2020. *
- Highway ROBBERY, literally. I hate their replenishment method. Only the NJ Turnpike Authority can make their payment/replenishment methods for customers completely stupid. If you aren't familiar, they decided years ago that if you make a payment with your credit card, you have the option to save the card and not have to enter the details again, but agreeing to save the card also agrees with EZ PASS taking out a replenishment amount based on the average amount of tolls that you pass. Come again? If you drive heavily and run through $300 in tolls one month due to extra work for example, and then tone it down to about $75, they will average your tolls from the last 60 (maybe 90 days, I forget) meaning they will automatically debit at least $150 in this example (my math may be off) but you get my point! You will never know how much will automatically be debited!
This has caused EZ PASS to be sued and are currently involved in multiple class action lawsuits because of EZ PASS violations being sent. Because of these violations, and horrible customer service, people prefer to pay cash to avoid going into massive debt with EZ PASS, which in turn causes much more NJ/NY Traffic than normal. People are stuck paying cash in today's day in age. How can people be OK with paying cash still? Causing the horrendous traffic and risk of car accidents that happen today!? I bet a reason for that is past due violations due to this horrendous replenishment method process.
-Some of the nastiest, least patient, rude customer service I've ever dealt with. It's so difficult to do things online on their ancient website in regards to violations, that I'm sure they get thousands of calls every day for the smallest of issues that should be handled online. With all that toll money, they should be making changes to the website and the process of paying violations!
-They are in ancient times I tell ya! If you have a violation and don't have any funding in your prepaid account, they send you letters to your home with a date and photo of your violations. Can you imagine how much funding is being spent on postage sending out for every single violation? It's gotta be an insane amount!
-The complaints are legitimate and NJ Turnpike Authority is hiding behind EZ PASS!
Does anyone else have horrible experience with EZ Pass? I can't stand them and the people in charge of the horrendous service. #RantComplete (for now)

#TLDR- EZ Pass Rant, NJ Turnpike Authority

2019.10.14 21:15 thisisnottravis Beer Fest this weekend – Gibbs Gardens, Ballground Ga.

Requisite long-post TL;DR: beer at pretty place, so go
Taking my post on this last year and updating it a bit for this year. There's a huge garden in Ball Ground, GA called Gibbs Gardens (~250-300 acres, for comparison Atlanta Botanical Garden is 30ish), and they're having their second, now-annual beerfest this weekend on Saturday.
I'm not sure the specific beers per brewery – likely staples but can't be sure – but can say there are more breweries than last year, some new breweries compared to last year, and there are VIP tickets available too that get early entry at 11, chef-prepped buffet lunch, and some more beers others don't (of 300, about 75 VIP are left as of me getting my ticket Monday):
Usual extras as well – a band (Loose Shoes Band, they're pretty good), food trucks (Angelfire7 BBQ, SunShine Alchemy, Knotty Pretzels, Hops+Nuts, and the garden's own cafe), vendors (dog stuff, nature stuff, outdoorsy places, olive oil/soap/honey, maybe more?).
Tickets are up a little this year, $45 if you happen to be a member already, $55 at the gate day of – for non-members they're $55 now, $65 at the gate. Online ticketing closes Friday at midnight, Saturday you can only get them at the gate. Consider this includes garden admission, which is $20 alone normally and can easily kill some hours wandering around even without beer, so it's really pretty cheap all considered compared to "hey pay to get into this place that's free anyway"-type events, ha.
Garden is also super pretty, colors are starting to change a little bit, waterlilies/wildflowers/japanese maples are the stars now, good for dates, you can buy some of their flowers to take home usually, all that!
My mom works here, say hey, ha.
Link to the event page, you can click around on the site for garden pics, it's nice – why drink in your house when you could drink here
Edit – BONUS SHAMELESS SHILL PRO TIP – If you go and think "huh this is pretty, maybe we'll come back", they'll let you apply the value of your ticket (that day, not counting beer, so $20) to the $50 season pass, making it $30. Go twice more between now and next October – birthdays, Mother's Day, whenever – boom, you effectively saved money. Each annual member gets a free pass for a friend – so two of you, you get two, etc etc.

2019.09.04 03:32 Darkvibes69 The ugly truth about BPD, splitting and what it exposes in the affected love one

Firstly I must say how worrying it is that there are so many of us affected by this and yet in a self serving way, reassuring to know I'm not the only one to fall for it.....sorry! What I will say is they always seem to target real men, good men so take it as a veiled compliment. As a first time poster I will explain my situation and apologise in advance if any forum rules are broken, I was discarded after 5 years in June of this year, I am English and 34 and my BPD ex is 25 and Dutch. We met online but not on a dating site, it was so random and I guess that added to the vision of fate and all the other cliches. Stunningly beautiful beyond words as most of these creatures seem to be from what I have read. She portrayed a very naive, pure and innocent flower, I don't need to take you through the cycle as we all know what the idealisation and adoration phase feels like, the usual god like status and pedestal we are placed on, to which we lap up very willingly at the time and it is that that keeps us hooked and in that naive state that allows us to stick around for what follows.
I always sensed something wasn't quite right but was blinded by the sheer perfect nymph that was infront of me, the amazing sex, the feeling of having her on my arm and all the other egotistical qualities you can think of, as shallow as you like. She moved to England and we lived together, with her with me about 10 months of the year and then over maybe 3 trips a year she would spend the other 2 months or so in Holland with her family. She is from a very small village where everyone knows everyone. She never worked and I totally supported her financially throughout our whole relationship, when I got home from work I even cooked her dinner! She got on so well with my mum (another extreme BPD sufferer) to the point where the sly digs that we all got from our ex's/current BPD girlfriends became triangulation as my mother would join in. Was like I was being bullied by the two women in my life, really weird but again you don't realise what is going on at the time. The level of emotion immaturity was profound, the constant need for reassurance and irrational reactions to ridiculously insignificant events. Even the rare occasion we had amazing times it would usually be ruined in some way by her and then swung in the record of history to be my fault! I was constantly made to feel like I was going crazy as she would deny saying things that she 100 percent had, tell me I had said or done things that I 100 percent hadn't done, constantly changing history, even if it was subtle little things. She would normally create an argument every Friday night, not talk to me all weekend and then make up with me late Sunday night begging me not to go to work on Monday Morning. She seemed to love testing me when we went out with my friends, she went to 3 of my life long friends weddings and caused public arguments with me at every single one. At one of these particular weddings in Spain, was an amazing day and then she had some stupid argument with me and went storming off (did this a lot), now we are in the middle of nowhere amongst orange groves in the pitch black, she took me to a level of anger I have never experienced and I grabbed her around the neck. I stopped myself immediately but still, I have never raised my hands to a woman and that really upsets me to this day that I was taken to that place, no matter how briefly and I do not condone my actions, regardless of what she is.
She also told me a few of my friends said inappropriate things to her which I am unsure if it occurred, as it was denied by my friends, then on a holiday in Turkey she told me a man we had met earlier from Norway had said things to her also when she went to get us drinks, next thing I am on the dance floor with a 6ft 7 viking in a headlock, unleashing rage like you wouldn't believe and was extremely lucky that the hotel manager sided with me when he found out what happened, so I didn't end up in a Turkish jail. I say that to say this, she loved every minute of it. The sex we had the night was unbelievable, she could not get enough of me and that was early on in our relationship. It is amazing the things you realise after the event, but she clearly created a lot of these scenarios deliberately, loved the drama. It boils down to their craving for attention, she used to go running off to the bedroom and wail like a child, it was so awkward and down right weird. She wore me down and dragged me into utter depression over the years with the constant mood swings, irrational reactions, strange insults and put downs, childish actions, I lived this shit for 5 years. So what is wrong with me and why was I the perfect victim? I have the hero complex, this is not the first time I have tried and miserably failed to "save" a girl from self destruction and oblivion. Got to be the bloody knight in shining armour haven't I, sad really. When I met her I was an extremely confident, strong, powerful Alpha male that was turned into a complete zombie like, pathetic, broken, beta version, total shadow of myself.
In June whilst visiting Holland out of no where she decided she did not want me anymore, did it all over Whats App, I have not seen or actually spoken to her, just messages. She displayed to me a side I had never seen before, the level of coldness and passive aggressiveness towards me, completely oblivious as to why I am making such a fuss, like its nothing and I should just send her stuff back and accept goodbye. She did though tell me that she had seen a therapist for body dysmorphia and had cancelled after two sessions. When I looked in to BD it said that there was usually a more serious underlying issue which led me to BPD and narcissism. She ticks every box except for the suicide and self harm (to my knowledge) I have watched and read so much on BPD now and it is one Eureka moment after another. I am certain she found someone else as she needs someone to leech and drain like a vampire of the soul. I am also certain she overlapped me and the new love interest and followed the classic textbook routine that they all seem to play out. I begged and pleaded like all self respecting men don't do and it was like she enjoyed every rejection. Everything clicked into place when I realised what she was about a month after breakup. Since then I obviously had to pick myself up from utter rock bottom, I couldn't eat or sleep for the first 6 weeks and literally went from 94 to 79 kilos, so I started working out and eating healthy for the first time ever and it has made me feel a lot better physically. Not quite there mentally yet, hence why I am here. We are all wounded by this experience and you have to also in this process look at what it is about you that puts up with this crazy shit, attracts these fruit loops and in a twisted way is addicted to even the thought of it, no matter how much pain it brought us, part of us longs for it back and that surely exposes something wrong in us. I think me personally, growing up with a BPD mother set me up for a life of it as I sadly see personality disorders in all my ex's, although none as severe as this one, but why am I a magnet for these women? I have a lot more to say but do not want to make this unreadable so will hope to engage responses from the true sufferers of BPD, us innocent victims!

2019.08.31 07:43 AGCO_Lottery Ballot Stuffing Prevails in 2nd Ontario Cannabis Lottery [Analysis]

Update: In true reddit fashion, the tips came flying in. I won't be updating my graphs or names list with the new findings. I will leave that to the community if they please.
These were the properties for those who want to parse the new data:
4210 INNES
5779 MAIN
After doing some recon with the tips, I found this article to help connect the dots,
The Serruyas are also heavy investors in the cannabis space, as early backers of Aphria Inc., now the third-largest licensed cannabis company in the country, and major investors in a number of smaller cannabis companies within Aphria’s orbit.
Once you search the Serruyas family name, you see the clear overlap with the Neufelds, Shalhoub, Miszuk names & properties. Some new families also pop-up with a clear relationship & multiple submissions on the shared Aphria properties. Suder, Farrell, Bitove among several others. Though, I have no doubt Serruyas are capable of opening their own retail front without any assistance, it will be interesting to see which sign they hang, and who they partner with.
In total, another ~20 names I found affiliated to the original 80 for Aphria/Friendly Stranger.

I also rec'd a tip that a lot of the numbered corps on the list are Ink Entertainment affiliates.I tried to find a tie between Ink & the Cannabis industry. I found Trec Brands ( was advertised a lot on Ink Entertainment site. Although there are some board member ties back to Aphria/Friendly Stranger, I don't think they are affiliated with Aphria/Friendly Stranger, as TREC appears to have relationships with other LPs.

TREC’s raise was led by co-founders Basem Hanna, the industry pioneer behind one of Canadian cannabis’ largest licensed producers, TerrAscend, and Charles Khabouth the award-winning founder and CEO of INK Entertainment.
I think TREC/Ink have their own smaller group submission happening.

The ability to submit multiple people on the same property could be the worst thing to happen to these groups.
I've done some exhaustive work. I hope some one else uses what I've done to build on. This most likely be my final update. My goal isn't to necessarily expose the people & the groups, but to expose the flaws in the process that allowed big companies with their wealthy networks to beat out the mom & pops who entered in good faith.

The lottery process should not allow for partnership, affiliation, or any type of revenue sharing which may insinuate an on-going relationship.
Moreso, a company should not be able to hang their sign on a 3rd party's lottery ticket, if the owner of that brand/trademark did not apply for the lottery directly. That proves they wanted their name and a store, but not by participating fairly in the lottery.
It’s more like a story out of the Kremlin than a provincial cannabis lottery. The Financial Post stated “More than 100 individuals used 14 addresses linked to HighLife Cannabis Co. to submit over 650 applications to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO)” They also go on to say that 7 individuals won, with another 5 on the wait list.
With the data being publicly available on, this inspired me to dive into the data.
What I found was even more surprising than suspected. Not only did I identify the 7 individuals the Financial Post indicated, I identified an additional 4 winners, and 500 applications with solid connections to High Life.
I also identified another ~80 participants accounting for almost 400 applications with connections to Aphria/Friendly Stranger, a headshop out of Toronto.
This took nearly 2 full days of data analysis. I tried to amend my data visualization to account for the recent disqualifications. It's not perfect, but it works. Aphria/Friendly Stranger & HighLife account for over 25% of submissions and ~30% of winners.

Identifying the collusion...

High Life was much easier than Friendly Stranger to identify the applicants who worked in concert together as they used a number of overlapping properties, which were previously posted on their site, and still accessible via the Financial Post article.
My rule for High Life was that each identifiable user must have at least 3 direct ties back to a published High Life property, with at least 1 more property shared with another individual who also has 3 direct ties to High Life. It’s also important to note that I couldn’t find any historic advertising for any of these properties, which might indicate that one must know the landlord or an affiliate directly to obtain the leasing paperwork required for application.
The breadth of High Life’s reach is far greater than expected, well over 1,000 individuals. number of typos for HighLife submissions is laughable. Several names with typos, or first/last name switched as if submitted by a 3rd party who wasn't sure. Also, some of the names in the downloaded CSV still contained consistent quotation formatting from whichever source the data was copy/pasted from into the online AGCO forms for submission. Their tactic was not subtle; just stuff the ballot box until it overflowed.
Friendly Stranger was more difficult. I didn’t have any real estate to work backwards from, though, the winning space 2 doors down from them is suspect.I had to look at the people. Going into this, I wasn’t looking for a specific company, but patterns on property & people applying.
There were a few names that caught my mind.The obvious family name to search is Jesty, after owner James Jesty. The Jesty family is responsible for 15 submissions via Frederick Jesty, Marilyn Jesty, Stefania Jesty
The next step was to search for people with a vested interest in Friendly Stranger. Matt Shaloub & Albert Soberano are affiliated with Green Acre Capital, an investment company behind Friendly Stranger.When you search the Lottery results for these last names, you see a very distinct link to family members, and shared properties. The Soberano family is responsible for nearly 40 submissions alone:Albert Soberano, Ari Soberano, Bonni Soberano, Daniel Soberano, Lila Soberano, Marcos Soberano, Noah Soberano, Shael Soberano
The Shaloub family is responsible for 10 submissions, 5 each under Christopher Shalhoub & Michael Shalhoub
These ~65 submissions directly related to Friendly Stranger created a web of connections between real estate and other key people & families which needed to be filled in.
One neat thing I saw outside of family names, and just as good, was almost perfectly sequential numbered corporations all affiliated with the same properties as the above families, as if the same lawyer or individual had filed them all at the same time for the intention of working in concert.2708631 Ontario Ltd
2708634 Ontario Ltd
2708635 Ontario Inc
2708636 Ontario Ltd
2708640 Ontario Ltd
2708646 Ontario Ltd
2708648 Ontario Ltd
2708651 Ontario Ltd
2708652 Ontario Ltd
2708654 Ontario Ltd
2708658 Ontario Ltd
2708659 Ontario Ltd
2708660 Ontario Ltd
I was able to draw many correlations between these corps & the above names.
It was difficult to trim the fat, as many of the properties applied to were advertised on MLS and had some random outsiders unaffiliated with Friendly Stranger attached to the properties.
I continued to stick to my rule of 3 direct links.
Among the shared Friendly Stranger leases, there appeared a very familiar cannabis name, Neufeld, former CEO of Aphria, and standing board member. Aphria also has a $15M+ vested interest in Green Acre Capital, the company backing Friendly Stranger. The Neufeld family accounted for 15 additional ballots. They also strengthened & extended the real estate web and direct connections back to Friendly Stranger’s interested parties. Vic Neufeld, Victoria Neufeld & Robert Neufeld accounted for another 15 submissions for Friendly Stranger.
There’s another family of names which appears connected via real estate to the Friendly Stranger web, Miszuk. When you search Miszuk & Neufeld on Google, we can also see they are both active in the MS Society dating back many years. Could be coincidental, but does suggest they most likely know each other personally. Cora Miszuk, John Miszuk, Thomas Miszuk account for another 13 ballots & further strengthen the ties between.

Edit: As other reddit comments have made, another easy link to make which drastically strengthened the web, was winner Cory Floyd Cacciavillani, son of Aphria co-founder Cole Cacciavillani
I believe the circle of influence of Friendly Stranger in this lottery process to be ~80 individuals & corporations -

What will come of this lottery process is still TBD. We've seen 12+ names now scratched off the list, and I suspect we will see many more follow suite. This will be a long, drawn out process for those affiliated with High Life & Friendly Stranger. It's not likely we'll see all 50 stores open within the next 12 months.We can expect to see those mentioned who pass AGCO scrutiny to partner with High Life, Friendly Stranger, or a closely connected entity. This is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s most likely other LP, Retail, or Venture Capital groups who have worked together during this lottery process to tip the odds in their favour.

The real shitty part -- a large number of disqualifications are in progress, which is providing the people on the wait list optimal real estate picking. They are not being held to their submitted location. The honest people ahead of them could be put in situations where their stores now have competing stores open on main arteries to cut their traffic flow. Or, they are stuck in a town with too many stores. Wait list applicants moving up can now strategically pick areas in need of service, or even pick a better location in a town with an existing store.You were better off being top of the wait list, versus being picked.
People are asking if this is allowed. The rules clearly state that one must remain in control of their decisions & business, and may not be affiliated with others who submit applications for the same region. The term affiliate is loose, but Rule 4 below is pretty indicative, and most likely encompasses these individuals. If we see these winners continue on in their application process to setup a relationship with HighLife, Green Acre Capital, Aphria, Friendly Stranger or a 3rd party related to either of these entities, it's safe to assume the was an affiliation & a plan to act in concert to circumvent the spirit of the lottery

Some rules..
.Rule 10:An Applicant who submits more than one Expression of Interest Application for the same Region will be disqualified from the Allocation Process. Additionally, if two Applicants who are Affiliates submit an Expression of Interest Application for the same Region, both Applicants will be disqualified from the Allocation Process.
