2020.08.24 04:20 echotamar [Treasure Hunting] Forrest Fenn’s Treasure: The Decade-Long Search for a $2 Million Treasure Chest in the Rocky Mountains

Hi folks! This is the story of Forrest Fenn. To some, he’s a man who loved what he did so much that he wanted others to feel that same love. Other consider him to be a wannabe Indiana Jones whose dangerous game had a negative impact on many people. He hid an extremely valuable treasure chest in the middle of a giant mountain range and stood by his decision even when the events that played out indicated it wasn’t for the best. Some people died, others ended up in jail, and Fenn encountered his own share of trouble because of the search. Such was the price he paid for his own convictions. This is the story of Forrest Fenn’s treasure hunt.
But before we get to the treasure hunt, we must first ask…

Who is Forrest Fenn?

Forrest Fenn was born in 1931 in Waco, Texas. His father was a local principal who had a hobby of collecting Native American artifacts that he found in the countryside. The young Forrest also took up this hobby, finding his first arrowhead when he was nine. He went on to join the Air Force in 1950 and his travels as a military man allowed him to further his artifact collecting. Some of the gets during his service time included Roman olive oil jars in Pompei, old brass coins in the Mediterranean Sea, and 8,000-year-old spearheads in the Sahara Desert.
When his military career ended in the early 1970’s, he moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico and opened an art gallery where he sold Native American antiquities and other kinds of art (including forgeries of artists such as Claude Monet and Edgar Degas). Fenn’s gallery made him a lot of money ($6 million per year according to a People’s Magazine article from 1986), which allowed him to expand his personal artifact collection as well as the gallery’s.
Now that we know a little about the man, let’s start talking about the treasure.

Fenn’s Brush With Death

In 1988, Fenn was diagnosed with kidney cancer and given a 20% chance of surviving more than a few years. The diagnosis inspired him to write a memoir of his life. Given the previous information, he certainly had a lot to work with. However, the process of writing the memoir had an unintended result. According to a Hemispheres Magazine feature from 2010:
“Fenn was reminded of how much fun he’d had hunting down fine art pieces and building his collection over the decades. He felt it would be a shame if all that ended with his death. The memoir would help preserve his legacy, of course—but as he saw it, there was only one way to pass along that sense of delight, that thrill of the hunt.”
In 1990, he spent $25,000 to acquire an 800-year-old bronze lock box and began filling it with antiques. These items included:
Fenn’s plan was to wait until he was near death, then venture into the wilderness with the box and, at some point, lie down and die next to it. This was the reason Fenn had put his memoir into the box: to make it easy for the authorities to identify his body. It was, in his mind, the perfect way to honor the thrill of the hunt that had driven his collecting. Perhaps it could even instill the same thrill in someone else. However, as Fenn said, there was one problem: “I ruined the story by getting better.”
Yeah, kind of hard to enact a plan contingent on your own death when you don’t end up dying. Fenn’s cancer went into remission and it never came back. After holding onto the chest for 20 years, Fenn abandoned the whole “dying” part of the plan and decided to just hide it. Sometime around 2010, he drove into the Rocky Mountains north of Santa Fe and carried the chest into the wilderness. At some point, he stopped, put the treasure down, and then went back home.

A Community Develops

“So hear me now and listen good,
Your effort will be worth the cold.
If you are brave and in the wood
I give you title to the gold.”
- Forrest Fenn, The Thrill of the Chase
Fenn published his memoir, The Thrill of the Chase, in 2010. The selection above comes from a poem that Fenn wrote to provide clues as to the chest’s location. Word of the treasure spread slowly at first, mainly because Fenn only sold the book through one store in Santa Fe. However, the story became nationally known in 2013 once it was featured multiple times on NBC’s Today Show. This and further coverage led to people coming from all over the country to search for the treasure. By 2018, it was estimated that as many as 350,000 people had gone into the Rocky Mountains to search for Fenn’s chest.
Over time, a dedicated community developed around the collective search for Fenn’s treasure. Seekers would gather on websites (such as hintofriches.com, chasechat.com, and FindingFennsGold on Reddit) or at in-person campouts called “Fennborees” to share stories and compare theories. Fenn’s intent to “pass along” the thrill he got from searching and collecting seemed to have been realized.

Trouble on the Trail

However, there was a darker side to this community. Some spent tens of thousands of dollars trying to find the treasure, even moving to the Rockies to be closer to the search. Five people died over the course of the hunt and several others were cited for legal infractions. Here are some of the more notable of these events:
That’s a lot of trouble made over seven years of treasure hunting. But Fenn never gave an inch, firmly convinced that someone would eventually find the chest. He proved to be right.

The End of the Hunt

“It was under a canopy of stars in the lush, forested vegetation of the Rocky Mountains and had not moved from the spot where I hid it more than 10 years ago. I do not know the person who found it, but the poem in my book led him to the precise spot. I congratulate the thousands of people who participated in the search and hope they will continue to be drawn by the promise of other discoveries. So the search is over. Look for more information and photos in the coming days.”
- Forrest Fenn on the Thrill of the Chase blog
On June 6th, 2020, Forrest announced through one of the searcher blogs that the treasure had been found. He further disclosed that the finder was a male from the eastern US who had asked Fenn not to reveal his name. Further information would later be released, including pictures of the treasure and the state it had been hidden in (Wyoming).
Although the treasure hunt has officially ended, there are still loose ends in the story. Fenn is now facing two separate lawsuits by people who claimed to have been cheated out of the treasure. One of these lawsuits is by Barbara Anderson, who claims that she had successfully deduced the location of the treasure but that she had been “hacked” by someone who stole her solution and found it before she did. A second lawsuit by Chris and Christopher Hurst alleges that they had honed in on a 12x12 ft. patch where they thought the treasure was and presented their evidence to Fenn, who announced the next day that the treasure had been found. According to an article from the Powell Tribune, the brothers “contend the hidden treasure was an experience and a history lesson. Now they would like Fenn to hand over the promised gold and jewels.” Like Scott Conway, the brothers also spent tens of thousands of dollars trying to find the treasure. These lawsuits are currently ongoing.

Conclusion

Fenn’s goal in creating the treasure hunt had been to help others feel the same kind of love that he felt for collecting. To that end, he certainly made a lot of people interested in it. But given the behavior that many of the people discussed in this post displayed, is that a good thing?
I hope you enjoyed this post. If I screwed anything up, please let me know and I will edit the info to reflect this. Researching Fenn’s rise to fortune has inspired me to make a big change in my life. Starting tomorrow, I’m moving to New Mexico to go hunt for arrowheads. If I never post again on this subreddit, you’ll know where to find my body.
TL;DR: An eccentric millionaire has a brush with death that inspires him to create a treasure hunt. People get way too into it, some people die, others have to be rescued, and plenty of laws get broken before someone finally finds it.

2020.08.21 08:36 jakkkmotivator Why Everyone In Crypto Is Talking About DeFi?

A new movement is pumping oxygen into the cryptocurrency industry despite asset prices that remain 75% lower than where they were in late 2017.
It’s called DeFi, short for decentralized finance—it’s the notion that crypto entrepreneurs can recreate traditional financial instruments in a decentralized architecture, outside of companies’ and governments’ control.
And with fresh allegations of misused funds against the centrally controlled cryptocurrency tether, the argument for decentralized applications has become even more relevant.
Bitcoin and Ethereum are the original DeFi applications. Both are controlled by large networks of computers, not central authorities.
Many investors use bitcoin like gold, as a store-of-value investment that protects against inflation, while Ethereum has been instrumental—and controversial—in helping startups crowdfund their operations.
But newer apps are dominating the DeFi conversation. The “stablecoin” Dai is a bitcoin-like digital token that aims to be a global currency untouchable by central banks. Unlike bitcoin, its value is pegged to the U.S. dollar, drastically reducing the volatility that prevents bitcoin from being practical for everyday purchases. Compound is a crypto version of a money market fund, letting users earn interest. Dharma lets you issue and underwrite debt to gain investment returns.
“The goal of DeFi is to reconstruct the banking system for the whole world in this open, permissionless way,” says Alex Pack, managing partner at Dragonfly Capital, a $100 million crypto fund. “You only get that shot every 50 years.”
Salil Deshpande, a partner at Bain Capital Ventures who leads the firm’s crypto investments, thinks people first became interested in DeFi because “they have a libertarian streak.” They like that they can build censorship-resistant products, and some developers are simply fascinated with the technology and its capabilities.
The most powerful effects of DeFi applications, Deshpande says, will take shape over the long term. He points to Venezuela, where a steep drop in oil prices and poor government policies like printing vast amounts of money have crushed the economy, with inflation exceeding 1,000,000% last year, according to the IMF. “Central banks are just people, and people make mistakes,” Deshpande wrote in a 2018 blog post. Decentralized financial applications “can make our financial systems more transparent, more resilient and less fragile,” he says.
Jill Carlson, a former Goldman Sachs trader and strategy lead at blockchain company Chain, has been researching how Venezuelans are using digital assets to combat hyperinflation as part of a nonprofit she cofounded, the Open Money Initiative. “Crypto is not saving Venezuela,” she says. But bitcoin is being used by small numbers of people as a tool to protect against inflation and to send money to family members in other countries.
Dai, the most widely used DeFi application not counting Bitcoin and Ethereum, has spiked in popularity over the past six months, although adoption remains very low. About 21,000 people currently hold the asset, and in early April, it hit a peak number of daily transactions at 13,490. That’s up from less than 500 average daily transactions in the first few months after it launched in late 2017.
The software behind Dai is technologically complex and consists of over 1,000 lines of code, “which is a lot for crypto,” Dragonfly Capital’s Alex Pack says. It lays out rules for how new Dai are minted and how the system is maintained. For example, to create $100 worth of new Dai, users must pledge $150 of ether. They must also pay an interest rate or “stability fee,” because they’re borrowing Dai when they create it. Dai has a sister currency called MKR, and people who hold MKR vote to determine Dai’s interest rate.
Two percent of all ether, or about $339 million worth of ether, is locked up in Dai. Compound has about $34 million in locked ether, while Dharma has roughly $10 million.
The stablecoin tether has much more usage and adoption—it surpassed 44,000 transactions on April 4, according to Coin Metrics. But it’s not decentralized, since it’s managed by iFinex, a widely scrutinized Hong Kong company recently accused of moving money from its tether stablecoin reserves to cover up for $850 million in missing funds on its Bitfinex exchange. Such incidents make the case for a decentralized currency even more compelling.
Despite the potential for noble use cases of Dai, like helping residents of troubled countries, people are primarily using it to make bigger, leveraged bets on Ethereum. Investors can pledge ether to borrow Dai, and then use that Dai to buy more ether. A second use case: Traders who want to exit out of a volatile cryptocurrency can swap it for Dai instead of a fiat currency. Dai is also being used as money by “financially underserved communities, such as many people in South America,” says Rune Christensen, CEO of the Maker Foundation, the nonprofit that built Dai’s software.
What are the biggest risks of DeFi applications? “The smart contracts could be hacked,” Pack says. “There could be a backdoor that allows someone to steal all of your keys. But you’re trusting in open-source code—over time, many eyes are looking at it.” Christensen notes that Dai’s software has been audited four times by well-respected security research firms like Trail of Bits.
While the DeFi movement has many fans, some traders don’t think it will move the needle on cryptocurrency adoption. “Technologically, I think it’s brilliant,” says Jeff Dorman, chief investment officer at digital asset management firm Arca. But he sees more promise in a stablecoin created by a large company with many users, pointing to recent reports that Facebook is working on one. “Ultimately, distribution wins out,” he says.
Dorman doesn’t mind that Facebook’s coin would be centralized. “That’s why so many passionate libertarians and government anarchists are in crypto,” he says. “They see this utopian future that we one day might get to, but we’re not getting there overnight. So let’s walk before we run.”

2020.08.15 19:10 H4RRY29 Early CHELSEA FC Asset Guide

Early CHELSEA FC Asset Guide
Here is an early guide to Chelsea's assets in FPL for this season.
DISCLAIMER: we are still expecting to sign Havertz, a new LB, a new GK and potentially a new CB. This is an early guide so be cautious before making final decisions.
Most Likely XI:
Since the restart, Lampard has experimented with a 4-3-3 with Kante playing a holding role, with two more offensive players ahead of him. It seems likely that this will be used next season, perhaps with Mount/Kovacic playing a more conservative pressing role to allow Havertz to flourish if he does come in - Havertz isn't known for his work rate so it is something Lampard will have to be aware of if the deal materialises.
I expect him to start with this formation, (INJ) indicates that the player is injured.
https://preview.redd.it/901d0mt5q6h51.png?width=434&format=png&auto=webp&s=a851b4457490fe53c1802e9702e106bb7f047542
Goalkeepers
Kepa (£5.0m): I am confident he wont be starting for us next season. The club have explored potential replacements, including Pope and Onana. We will have to wait and see what happens with this, Kepa is more likely to go out on loan rather than stay as a backup.
Verdict: stay clear.
Caballero (£5.0m): our backup GK who has found playing time with Kepa not up to standard. Too expensive for a FPL backup GK.
Verdict: stay clear.

Defenders
Azpilicueta (£6.0m): our captain has great assist potential (6 assists, 2 goals last season), but he has interesting competition from Reece James. That being said, he covers at left back and is the prime candidate to be used as a right sided CB in a back 5. For £6.0m he is a decent differential, however he did get injured in the FA Cup final (his first injury for us in 8 years). He should be back for the first game, depending if Lampard wants to rush him in or not.
Verdict: differential option, rotation risk.
Alonso (£6.0m): he didn't play as much last season, and is probably going to be a backup for a new LB (most likely Chilwell according to current reports). He is still a goal threat (4 goals, 3 assists last season) but I expect him to lose playing time to the new LB and probably Azpilicueta too. £6.0m isn't worth it at all.
Verdict: stay clear.
Rudiger (£5.0m): along with our entire defence, Rudiger has looked ropey and inconsistent. As a club, we need to bring in improvements but Lampard also needs to address his defensive setup/tactics/organisation. I think Rudiger is currently 2nd in the pecking order, and may drop to 3rd if we bring in a new CB.
Verdict: stay clear.
Zouma (£5.0m): he is probably our best defender in terms of actual defending, and would look more competent with a better partner next to him. His ball-playing and composure isn't great but I still (personally) prefer him to the alternatives. I don't expect him to get many points though, and there will be safer £4.5m options. He is also our easiest CB to sell, with more interest reported from clubs (though I hope we keep him).
Verdict: stay clear.
James (£5.0m): he is dangerous going forward, with one of the best crossing abilities I have seen; I think he could get a few assists this season. Our wingbacks typically push very high up, which tends to expose our defensive wide areas. Once again, this is something for the manager to address. Defensively he needs to improve in 1-on-1 situations. He will be rotated with Azpilicueta so only bring him in if you are prepared for him to be dropped/substituted on.
Verdict: safer options with less rotation risk, though he has decent attacking potential.
Tomori (£5.0m): he has been out of favour with fitness issues despite an impressive start early in the season. There is a chance he could be loaned out to another PL side or Stade Rennais who have a Champions League spot; the situation changes if we bring in another CB. Don't expect him to start.
Verdict: stay clear.
Christensen (£5.0m): probably behind Zouma and Rudiger in the pecking order and could be on his way out if there is a good enough offer. Doesn't fill me with confidence when he plays. Overall, our clean sheet potential doesn't look great unless we bring in a new GK, improve our defensive tactics and maybe bring in a new CB.
Verdict: stay clear.
Emerson (£5.0m): expect to be sold. Inter were in the market for him for £18-20m according to reports. He would be 3rd choice if he stayed.
Verdict: stay clear.

Midfielders
Pulisic (£8.5m): he is injured and likely to miss the opening games. Don't start with him in your team, but he has incredible attacking potential and has been our best player since the restart so I'd consider bringing him in. He is a direct winger (9 goals, 6 assists in his inaugral season) and hopefully will only get better. Be cautious of his injuries, he seems to be quite prone.
Verdict: keep an eye on him, could be a great choice if he hits the ground running once he returns from injury.
Ziyech (£8.0m): he is expected to play on the right wing. Excellent value for a potential set-piece taker, even better if his form from the Eredivisie translates to the PL (6 goals, 13 assists in 21 games last season). He hasn't looked out of place in the Champions League either.
Verdict: could emerge as a must buy. Worth the early risk.
Mount (£7.0m): nobody expects Lampard to drop his golden boy who has had a successful first season in the Prem. Before the restart, he was deployed as an attacking midfielder, however, the general consensus among our fanbase is that he is better as a box-to-box CM. He doesn't have the creativity to play behind the striker in the long-term. He will most likely start as one of the two attacking 8s as he is better suited to the role. Rotation risk is high with Barkley, Loftus-Cheek and Kovacic.
Verdict: keep an eye on him.
Barkley (£6.0m): squad player, rotation option. He has been decent since the restart, yet he has low FPL potential unless he breaks into the first 11 (this is where he could be decent value). The impending Havertz signing only makes his situation worse, and he could head out if we need to raise funds for more signings.
Verdict: avoid.
Loftus-Cheek (£6.0m): he made baby steps in the restart after returning from a long injury. This season is a make or break for him, he has shown what he can do in the back end of the 2018/19 season, yet expect him to be a squad player this season.
Verdict: avoid for now.
Hudson-Odoi (£6.0m): with Pulisic out, Hudson-Odoi could get 1-3 starts in the opening gameweeks (Werner could also feature on the left wing, unless Lampard decides to put Mount there like a madman). He is a direct attacking threat and has looked hungry in his recent cameos.
Verdict: great differential for the first few games.
Kovacic (£5.5m): a player of the year candidate, although the new system isn't entirely suited to him. Kovacic has all of the qualities except in the final third - his attacking contributions are poor.
Verdict: avoid, there are better options out there.
Jorginho (£5.0m): Jorginho is a great player but isn't being used to his strengths, and if Lampard isn't prepared to change the structure of the team to fit him in (which is fair if Frank wants to do that) then now is a good time to offload him though there are no real suitors at the moment. Unlikely to start in the expected system, and has low FPL potential.
Verdict: avoid.
Kante (£5.0m): nobody expects goals/assists from Kante as it stands, so expect them even less if he starts as a DM. He isn't exactly suited to the role unless he adapts his game (he prefers to press high in a box-to-box role), so for that reason I wouldn't bring him in. He has also struggled with injuries this season. There are probably better options at <£5.0m.
Verdict: avoid.
Gilmour (£4.5m): he is injured while he recovers from knee surgery, so wont be ready for 2-3 months. When he returns, he will be behind Kante and Jorginho (if he stays) while also trying to regain match fitness. A loan could be on the cards in January in that case.
Verdict: avoid.

Forwards
Werner (£9.5m): 28 goals and 8 assists in 34 Bundesliga games speaks for itself. Werner usually plays in a striker pairing, where he drifts out to the left (this is why many people think he could play as a left winger). He has improved his build-up game immensely which will benefit him in the Prem, yet he will have less opportunities to utilise his pace and get in behind defenders. Time will tell if he fits the league well, but he could be a great striker.
Verdict: worth the risk, though there are safer options.
Abraham (£7.5m): despite an incredible start to last season, Tammy has looked bad since December and has lost his spot to Giroud. With 15 Premier League goals in his first season, we can't overlook that he has the potential to improve, yet I don't expect him to start over Werner.
Verdict: avoid for now, keep an eye on our striker situation.
Giroud (£7.0m): Giroud came in clutch for Chelsea's goal to reach the top 4, scoring 6 league goals since the restart. That being said, I still think that he will find his playing time limited this season and don't see him as great value at £7.0m if he isn't playing.
Verdict: avoid for now.
Batshuayi (£6.0m): will be sold this summer, Leeds are apparently interested. He could be an interesting option at another PL club for that price.
Verdict: avoid if he remains at the club.

TL;DR:
My go-to Chelsea player has to be Ziyech, he will start on the right wing of an exciting attack and is most likely on set piece duties. Werner could be a great shout if he adapts to the league well, and Hudson-Odoi could be an interesting differential for the first few gameweeks with Pulisic out.
Avoid our defence unless you are a risk taker; there is rotation risk with James/Azpi and we need to establish if our defence improves (54 goals conceded last season).
I hope this helps, I am happy to answer any questions or to see if anyone disagrees with this!

2020.07.30 11:06 GenBuhari Why don't you want Onana?

He's cheap, he's young, and he came from La Masia. Kepa's height has been an issue, but Onana is taller than Kepa, Oblak, and Ter Stegen (other names we're linked to). He's not unproven, if he was he wouldn't have made it to a CL semi final. I know people say one of his major issues is that he doesn't collect crosses so well, but he has the height for it and can get better. He also doesn't stand and watch as shots go in. I think the money for big name keepers would be better spent on finishing up the Havertz deal, a fast LB that's good on the ball (Lampard really wants Chilwell, and trust him), and an older, experienced 29-30yo CB who'd probably not cost much. An older CB could partner with Zouma and any of the younger ones, and when they all come of age we'll be sorted out in the CB department for quite a while (Tomori, Zouma, Christensen, Ampadu). Or what do you think?

2020.07.29 14:04 myvcen An early look at the Top Six transfer market strategy. – Are 3 signings enough to guarantee us Top 4 next year?

Hi, so this is my first post on this sub. Please be gentle.
This upcoming transfer window will be important; I think it will define whether or not Ole is successful. I know that sounds a tad overdramatic, but I will explain below.
I think Klopp is probably the best manager in world football and this giving credit where credit is due and I have been a big fan of him, always thought he should have taken over for us as he was perfect for United. Given that what I am trying to say is he has a system that works, that even if you put in average players, he can get results regardless. Because of this he can get away with not needing to buy star players or needing depth like City’s to win championships. Saying all that I don’t think Ole is in that bracket and yes he can still prove me wrong however I think he will need great players to achieve some modicum of success especially top 4 next season.
Given the COVID-19 situation there is a likelihood that clubs outside of the EPL will be selling and due to most relying on matchday revenues they will be in desperate need of cash. Given how TV rights are structured in the EPL, there’s the chance that a majority of clubs will have some finances. Herein lies my questions do you think 2-3 transfers will be enough to guarantee a top 4 finish next year?
Mainly focusing on the Big 6 clubs here.

Spurs

Tottenham have been moving into a decent direction with Mourinho. The team is starting to perform the way Mou sets up his teams, and I think most players are buying into what he is selling. The team has been on an upward direction as compared to what they were at the end of Poch tenure. Even managed to get themselves in Europe next year. Mourinho has already said not to expect big name transfers and their targets are more in line with his words. There’s also Levy…
Looking at their squad Spurs only have one LB and RB. Ask Spurs fans and they will tell you about Aurier at RB. Davies is serviceable but they need depth and a starter at RB.
Possible Target: Max Aarons - Norwich
The exit of Vertonghen will mean Spurs will be in the market for a CB and knowing Mourinho they will be after a strong big defender so I don’t see them going for Ake.
Possible Targets:
David Brooks – AFC Bournemouth
Kim-min Jae - Beijing Guoan
Spurs are also looking for a midfielder with Mourinho not liking Ndobele and Lo Celso with Fernandes joining in 2021 they are in the market for a CM now.
Possible Targets:
Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg – Southampton
Ryan Fraser – AFC Bournemouth
The last pickup in the transfer will probably be Harry Kane’s backup, considering Troy Parrott will be out on loan.
Possible Targets:
????

Liverpool

After winning their first PL title, Liverpool can keep their place at the top by making added signings to their depth. Just like last year, Klopp has said that they will only buy if their targets are available and won’t buy for the sake of buying. There’s been talks of Thiago coming however, not unless they lose a midfielder (Gini contract issues) the signing won’t go ahead. Liverpool are looking to make signings for the future and to add to their depth.
Liverpool’s are looking to add depth at their CB position with Lovren leaving.
Possible targets:
Ozan Kabak - Schalke 04
Liverpool are also looking for cover for LB Robertson and just like Robertson and most of their signings they are looking at relegated teams for depth.
Possible targets:
Jamal Lewis – Norwich
Lloyd Kelly – AFC Bournemouth

Arsenal

After letting go of Unai Emery, Arsenal will look to Arteta to revive and rebuild the club to the once feared team. The question will be will they back him considering Kronke is still there. Arsenal also have 5/6 outs this summer, so there’s a possibility they might have more cash and end up getting more than I have listed here.
We have heard a lot about their defence and with Saliba coming in next season and a few outs from CB; they are also looking for one more player. Their main target is out-of-contract left footed (wink wink) 21-year-old Malang Sarr of OGC Nice fame. However, at this stage there has only been interest no offer made.
Possible targets:
Malang Sarr
Matthias Ginter
Arsenal’s main concern is a defensive midfielder and right now they are in talks with Atleti for Partey however they have been low balling them by offering Guendouzi/another player + €25M however Atleti are not budging for anything less than his release clause of €50M.
Possible Targets:
Thomas Partey - Atlético Madrid
Amadou Diawara - A.S. Roma
The last area they are looking to add is a creative outlet. There has been talks of keeping Ceballos and making his loan permanent. Real Madrid want him gone and Arsenal will have competition from Betis and Sevilla.

Manchester City

Coming off a rough campaign that at times looked like the wheels were about to fall off City will be looking to spend this summer. Money will not be an issue for them, and after getting their ban overturned, it will embolden them to spend even more.
Pep needs a solid CB, and we saw when they lost Laporte that they were leaking goals even though Garcia has been great at times, there’s a need for an established player. As always, expect Pep to look for a ball playing CB to partner up with Laporte.
Possible Targets:
Kalidou Koulibaly - Napoli
Nathan Ake – AFC Bournemouth
Diego Carlos - Sevilla FC
With Sane settling in at Bayern, City will be in the market for his replacement. Expect a young player with potential instead of an established world beater.
Possible Targets:
Ferran Torres - Valencia CF
There’s a possibility that Claudio Bravo will be leaving and a replacement is a must.
Possible Targets:
Zack Steffen - Returning from Loan

Chelsea

I left this for last because there’s a lot of movement and they are our main competition especially for top 4 and 3rd position. Also, the players they have been targeting are some of my favourite players in football, especially Werner and Havertz. Frank looks to build on his current success with some impressive signings.
With Pulisic coming in as the Hazard replacement and with the youth coming up Reece James, Mount, Ampadu, Tomori, Reece James Hudson-Odoi and Abraham. Chelsea are planning for the next decade. Their strategy is snapping up all the young players with potential, so expect their transfer to fall in that line.
Pedro and Willian are likely to leave so the move for Ziyech gives them cover for that RW position and also AM. Similar with the potential of getting Havertz who can also play RW and AM. Chelsea should have those positions covered.
Possible Targets:
Kai Havertz - Bayer Leverkusen
The centre back problem will need to be resolved, however there have been no serious targets. Especially having Ampadu and Tomori, who are young and full of potential. Not to forget they still have Rüdiger, Zouma and Christensen.
Possible Targets:
Matthias Ginter - Borussia Mönchengladbach
Chelsea are also interested in a DM, although not a priority. They are looking to move their deadwood like Drinkwater, Barkley, Bakayako and Batshuayi. Rice is their target, but West Ham won’t accept nothing less than £80M. Chelsea have offered (separately) Barkley, Drinkwater and Batshuayi in a swap deal which have been rejected.
Possible Targets:
Declan Rice- West Ham United
Left Back is another position Frank is looking to strengthen with Alonso struggling in a back 4. Although interest for the position has waned because of priorities in other positions.
Possible Targets:
Nicolás Tagliafico - Ajax
Robin Gosens - Atalanta
Lastly, the goalkeeper situation is their main priority for Chelsea. Lampard benching Kepa in the final game against Wolves with UCL on the line was telling. Kepa having the worst save record in PL history (+10 games played) means Chelsea will probably spend.
Possible Targets:
André Onana - Ajax

Chelsea are primed to close down the gap between them and City. Armed with depth and star power I don’t see how we will comfortably finish 3rd or Top 4. I think the clubs will be better and some were in a better position than we were and are looking to build on that. Arsenal might not have Europe which might play to their advantage, but that will be decided Sunday. Personally, I would like all the top 6 teams to be in Europe. I know this is a way too-early look and a lot can change, but as of right now I believe 4 players will be best. RW, AM, CM and CB. I know people want a DM but I think we need more creativity, especially for those cup games when our starters are not playing or matches where an impact sub would be useful.
I would like to say after spending some time in all these subs Chelsea was by far the most toxic one. Slagging Ole, United and City is like their daily agenda. Very delusional acting like they didn’t get a sugar daddy with Russian money to get where they are. Even though it pains me to say I hope Arsenal wins.
PS. This was taken from each team’s Tier 1 and Tier 2 sources.
edit - I didn't include United as I figured we would all know our targets and wanted to highlight our competition's targets.

2020.07.13 15:02 packym How to fix Twitter... If I Ruled the Tweets

Sorry for the self-promo, but I think this crew is going to like this. My thoughts on how to fix Twitter...
(Original post here: https://notboring.substack.com/p/if-i-ruled-the-tweets)
On April 7th, just weeks into the Coronavirus pandemic, Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey announced that he was giving away $1 billion to fund global COVID-19 relief. The world applauded Dorsey like this level of generosity was something new for him. Anyone who’s been following Twitter, though, knows that Jack Dorsey has been giving away value for years.
Twitter is the most undermonetized product in the world, because it doesn’t know what it is. For someone so into meditation, u/jack’s lack of self-awareness is a surprising error with major implications.
But Twitter still has a shot. One decision in 2015, and the company’s soporific product cadence since, was a blessing in disguise that gives Twitter a blank slate to build the product that it was meant to be all along.
Sliding Vines
In her recent book on Instagram, No Filter, Sarah Frier includes one paragraph about the 2015 battle between Vine, Twitter’s six-second video app, and its biggest stars:
Twenty of the top Viners banded together to negotiate with Twitter, saying that for about $1 million each, they could post every day for the next six months. If Twitter rejected the deal, they would instead start posting Vines to tell followers to find them on Instagram, YouTube, or Snapchat instead. Twitter refused, the stars abandoned the app, and eventually, Vine shut down entirely.
That short paragraph represents one of the major Sliding Doors moments in recent tech history. What does the app world - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Netflix, and more - look like if Twitter had given into its biggest stars’ demands?
Sliding Doors moments are what-ifs based on small tweaks to the timeline, popularized by the 1998 Gwenyth Paltrow banger, … Sliding Doors.
The movie runs two timelines in parallel, split by one moment in which Paltrow’s character, Helen Quilly, either misses or catches her train home.
In Timeline 1, Helen misses the train, gets mugged, hits her head, and finally gets home just as her fiancé’s ex drives off, none the wiser that the two had just slept together.
In Timeline 2, Helen jams her shoulder between the “sliding doors,” catches her train, and makes it home to catch her fiancé in bed with another woman.
As the short-form video app TikTok sweeps the world - it is expected to generate $500 million this year in the US alone - Twitter’s critics are running the sliding doors scenario on the company’s 2015 decision to effectively kill its own short-form video app.
In Timeline 1, Twitter plays ball with the Viners. It pays them what they want, listens to their product feedback, and turns Vine into what TikTok is today. Twitter is an engagement powerhouse.
We’re living in Timeline 2. Twitter says no to the Viners and ultimately shutters the app. Its main product stagnates and its stock price follows suit. TikTok fills the void and its parent company, ByteDance, is worth 4x as much as Twitter, with a valuation rumored to be between $105-110 billion on 2019 net profits of $3 billion - nearly as much as Twitter’s total 2019 revenue!
But there’s a twist in Sliding Doors, and it applies to Twitter, too.
In Timeline 1, the one in which she stays with her fiancé, Helen is miserable.
In Timeline 2, after a couple of days of deep sadness and lots of drinks, Helen cuts her hair, starts her own PR firm, and falls in love with a much better guy.
Timeline 2, the one that seems like it would be worse for Helen, allows her to rediscover who she is. Her new path ends up being so much better than the one she was originally on, because Timeline 1 Helen wasn’t her best self after all.
(Let’s ignore the part where Helen gets hit by a van and dies. Life is unpredictable!)
Twitter’s Timeline 2 has the potential to be so much better than Timeline 1, but the company is still in the midst of a five-year post-breakup funk. Since it hasn’t rediscovered itself yet, I’m going to play the role of “concerned best friend” and help Twitter snap out of it.
If Twitter had kept Vine alive, it would have set a bad precedent, giving into creators’ demands and paying them off while failing to capture value itself. Even worse, it would have allowed Twitter to continue to delude itself into thinking that it’s a social network.
Here’s the thing:
Twitter thinks it’s Facebook, but it’s LinkedIn.
Twitter thinks it’s an ad product, but it’s a subscription product. It thinks it’s an Aggregator, but it’s a Platform. It thinks it’s a social network, but it’s a professional network: one built for the Passion Economy, based on the strength of ideas instead of past experience.
That realization should be liberating for Twitter and Jack Dorsey. Instead of being the world’s least innovative social network, it can be its most innovative professional network. Twitter should be the beating heart of the Passion Economy, and begin capturing some of the tremendous value it creates.
Today, we’re going to give Twitter a makeover with its new identity in mind.
Twitter is the most undermonetized product in the world. IT’S TIME TO MONETIZE!

What’s Wrong with Twitter?

Twitter is simultaneously my favorite product and the company that most frustrates me.
As a Twitter user, I love the product.
According to my Weekly Screen Time Report, I spend 5x more time on Twitter than I do on any other app. Not Boring would not grow the way it does without Twitter. I meet and talk to people I would otherwise just read about and admire from afar. If anything, I want to be able to do more on Twitter.
As a Twitter shareholder, I can’t stand the company.
Twitter’s stock has underperformed all of its peers… significantly. Twitter is down 14% since its 2013 IPO. Its next closest competitor, Google, is up 186% over the same period. Facebook, lacking scruples in its pursuit of Rubles, has more than quadrupled.

So I have a lot of thoughts about what Twitter should do. I’m not alone. On Friday, I asked this question (on Twitter of course):
📷Packy McCormick @packyMIf you woke up tomorrow as @jack and could do anything you wanted with Twitter - products, features, biz model, acquisitions, go wild! - what would you do? (Note: Don’t say edit button, you’re more creative than that)

I’ve never gotten more engagement on a tweet. Twitter users love talking about what they would do to fix Twitter.
Responses ranged from “Sell the company” to “Ban the Nazis,” from “Remove the bots” to “Fix search.” Nikhil begged: “fix DMs holy shit nothing else matters please jack i beg you why are they so bad.” People asked for a podcast app, the ability to write longer-form content, and verification. Even Y Combinator founder Paul Graham got involved:
📷Paul Graham @[email protected] @jack I'd try to make Twitter less toxic. For example, I'd study how Twitter mobs form and add measures to slow them down. I'd spend a lot of time thinking about ways to make more money to compensate for the decreased engagement. (The root of the toxicity is chasing engagement.)

Reading through all of the responses, a pattern emerged: Twitter is terrible at being an ad-based social network, and isn’t giving Creators a pro subscription product they would happily pay for.
Social versus Professional Networks
Incentives shape behavior, both on the company and individual level.
Social networks - like Facebook, Instagram, and Snap - work by getting you and all of your friends in one place, keeping all of you engaged, and selling your attention to its real customers - advertisers. Facebook generates 98.5% of its revenue from ads.
To PG’s point, engagement-chasing leads to toxicity. Social networks are incentivized to show user growth (which disincentivizes, say, removing bots from the platform) and to keep users in the app (and outrage is a great way to keep people glued to their screens).
Professional networks - like LinkedIn - like engagement and ad revenue, too. Who doesn’t? But ads are not their main source of income. Before Microsoft bought it for $27 billion in 2016, LinkedIn made money in three ways: Talent Solutions (recruiting and learning tools, 65%), Marketing Solutions (ads, 18%), and Premium Subscriptions (want to see who viewed your profile? 17%). Only 18% of LinkedIn’s revenue comes from ads; 82% comes from subscriptions.
Professional networks aim to deliver measurable value to as many of the best companies and top people as possible, and get them to pay directly for that value. Bots and outrage are harmful to professional networks, because they make it less likely that users achieve the things they are willing to pay for to achieve - hiring, partnering, and selling.
Twitter makes money like a social network: Advertising Services (ads, 86.5%) and Data Licensing (selling companies a firehose of Twitter data, 13.5%). It generates revenue by keeping people engaged, generating data on them, and either using that data to sell ads or selling the data itself.
But Twitter isn’t very good at the business of being a social network. Twitter has long struggled to grow or monetize its user base. In 2019, Twitter made $3.4 billion from 330 million users. Facebook made $70.7 billion off of 2.5 billion users.
Facebook is for everyone who has friends, family and an internet connection, which is pretty much everyone. Twitter is not for everyone. It’s for knowledge workers who rely on Twitter to exchange ideas, promote their work, and take place in the global, real-time conversation.
That is definitionally a smaller target market than Facebook’s, but that doesn’t mean that Twitter needs to be a smaller business. Twitter’s audience is more targeted and professional; it should be able to generate more revenue per user than Facebook does. Arguably, Twitter actually does create more value than Facebook. Its lack of self-awareness, though, prevents it from capturing that value.
The Informal Bill Gates Line
Twitter is a charity masquerading as a for-profit business.
It’s nearly impossible to calculate the total value that Twitter has created for its power users - both individuals and companies - by giving them a place to build an audience, connect directly with fans, and promote their work. And Twitter keeps almost none of that value for itself.
Let’s take Substack as an example.
Substack would not exist, at least not in its current venture-backed form, without Twitter. I surveyed a group of newsletter writers about how they grow their audiences, and 95% of them use Twitter. For Substack, that’s incredible. Its customers - writers - write on Substack, share what they write on Twitter, and take advantage of Twitter’s graph to find new subscribers. Some percentage of those subscribers pay the writer and Substack takes a cut. Other writers see Substack on Twitter and decide to start their own Substack, and the cycle starts again.
Who’s capturing the value here?
The writer captures value in the form of a new free or paid subscriber.
Substack captures value in the form of new paid subscribers and new writers.
Twitter captures almost zero value. You could argue that it captures a little in the form of increased engagement that it can sell ads against, but when one of its users sees a Substack post and clicks the link, she leaves Twitter and gives her attention to Substack.
📷
This happens millions of times each day, for thousands of non-Twitter products - YouTube, Medium, The New York Times, Spotify, podcasts. Don’t get me started on podcasts. In-app podcast discovery is notoriously awful. You know where people discover podcasts? Twitter. Countless media and tech companies and personalities amplify themselves on Twitter, for free, and then bring users off of Twitter and into their product.
This is how Aggregators work. They aggregate demand, and collect a tax for sending that demand to its final destination. Every time I search on Google, for example, if I find what I want, I leave Google. But Google collects money from the company to whom I divert my attention.
Twitter is terrible at collecting that tax. Its Promoted Tweets are a hard-to-use joke. Twitter is a very bad Aggregator.
The other way of looking at Twitter is as the Platform that is further above the Bill Gates Line than any other platform on earth.
The Bill Gates Line is a phrase coined by Ben Thompson based on a Bill Gates quote about Facebook Platform:
This isn’t a platform. A platform is when the economic value of everybody that uses it, exceeds the value of the company that creates it. Then it’s a platform.
By that measure, Twitter is definitely a platform, but it’s an informal one. Whereas developers build directly on top of traditional platforms, like Windows, the businesses built “on top of” Twitter, like Substack, do so informally and without Twitter capturing any value.
Twitter is so far above the Bill Gates Line that it’s much closer to another Bill Gates Line - the world-record $35 billion that Gates has given away through the Gates Foundation.
It is time for Twitter to start capturing the value that it creates, improve its experience for its customers, and get its stock moving. For that, it needs to understand who its customer is, and what the Job to be Done is for those customers.

Who is Twitter’s Customer?

There’s a phrase that goes back to the pre-internet era that people apply to social media:
“If you’re not paying for the product, you are the product.”
It means that ad-supported businesses sell your attention (the product) to advertisers (the customer).
On social networks, users are the product, and advertisers are the customers. In non-ad supported businesses - from subscriptions to hardware to food - the product is the product, and the buyer is the customer.
On professional networks, like LinkedIn, most users are the product, but power users are the customers. Anyone can use LinkedIn for free, but users who need more capabilities - who want to recruit beyond their own network, see who’s viewing their profiles, or reach out to qualified leads - can pay for additional functionality. Like a social network, everyone on LinkedIn benefits from more people being on LinkedIn, but certain people and companies can pay to benefit more.
For Twitter, its customers are Creators, the 10% of users who generate 80% of the tweets.
Twitter should adopt LinkedIn’s model - keeping the current Twitter product free, open, and ad-supported for casual users, and charging its customers - the Creators who rely on Twitter to build and grow their businesses - for advanced tools.
What is Twitter’s Customers’ Job To Be Done?
The "Jobs to be done" (JTBD) framework, developed by Clayton Christensen, says that customers hire products to do a certain job for them. For Netflix, the JBTD is “I need to be entertained.” For Facebook, it’s “I need to connect with friends and family.” For Google, it’s “I need to find something on the internet.”
What is Twitter’s JTBD for Creators? “I need to get my ideas in front of people.”
Twitter is the Platform for Ideas. Its customers are the Creators who create and share ideas. It should diversify its revenue stream away from ads-only by adding a subscription product and monetization options for those Creators.
I’m not the first to suggest that Twitter should launch a subscription. Last week, a Twitter job posting suggesting that the company is hiring for a subscription product shot around the internet. Its stock popped 7%. Professor Scott Galloway previously wrote that Twitter should buy up dying media companies and also charge verified users a monthly fee based on their follower count, or something.
But the Prof is just as confused as Jack. A half-baked subscription product that extorts Twitter’s top users based on the follower counts they’ve spent years building up doesn’t make any damn sense.
Thanks to the 300+ replies with suggestions for improving Twitter, though, we’re ready to Play Fantasy Jack.

If I Ruled the Tweets

As @Post_Market said, “Twitter is the town hall.” That’s a wonderful thing, but real business doesn’t get done in the town halls. It gets done in the back rooms. Currently, those back rooms are off of Twitter. Jack needs to take them back.
The Fantasy Jack Twitter Roadmap is all about making it easier to create, share, and monetize great ideas, build communities, and capture value:
  1. Table Stakes: Verify identity to clean up the conversation.
  2. Twitter+ Subscription: Paid tools for Creators to find, create, and share ideas.
  3. Twitter Create: Twitter should be the place to build subscription businesses.
  4. Profiles as Creators’ Home: Develop the most underdeveloped real estate online.
This roadmap seems like a bold departure from the Twitter we know and love, but it really just represents Twitter getting out of its own way and building better versions of the things that happen outside of its control today.
1. Verify Identity and Allow Filtering by Verified
This is table stakes.
A social Aggregator might not want to verify users, creating two classes, one of which is far less valuable to advertisers, and exposing that its user base is smaller than it looks. A professional Platform for Ideas absolutely should.
Twitter used to verify its users - giving them a blue check on their profile - until it caused an uproar in 2017 by verifying a white supremacist. Now it only verifies some people, occasionally, through a non-public process that involves getting in touch with someone at Twitter. It’s messy.
Dror suggests that Twitter should “give people a chance to verify their identity, even for a small fee” and “allow filtering of posts, comments, and notifications by verified.”
The ability to filter by verified solves the bot problem, squashes trolls, and raises the level of discourse on Twitter. To PG’s point, when you’re not optimizing for Daily Active Users (DAUs) and engagement alone, you can lower toxicity.
2. Build Twitter+, a Subscription Product for Creators
Charging the most popular Twitter accounts a monthly fee based on their follower count is a progressive tax that could lead to a mass exodus. That’s not the move. But Twitter should absolutely build a Pro subscription offering for its Creators.
The subscription product should enable creators to do the JTBD better - generate, create, and share ideas - spark conversations around those ideas, and get paid for them. As a Twitter Creator, I would pay for:
Twitter is in a position to create the ultimate Creator bundle, and add to it over time. Live presentations, Superpeer functionality, free promoted tweets - the bundle would only get more valuable over time.
At $20/month (Roam alone is $15/month), Twitter+ is a $1 billion annual opportunity, without assuming that the improved offering attracts new users.
📷
3. Build, Buy, or Partner on Products for Creating, Sharing, and Monetizing Ideas
This is where Twitter takes back the value that it creates for so many other companies. It needs to get a little mean to make that happen.
Twitter is the place that Creators go to grow subscription businesses. Twitter Create should be the place that they go to build subscription businesses.
To start, Twitter should build a monetization product for Creators to easily collect subscription or one-time payments, from which Twitter takes a small cut. Instead of a Memberful plug-in on a Squarespace website, Creators should just build it all on Twitter.
Some people have suggested that Substack, which makes it easy to create a subscription newsletter, is the paywall for Twitter, and that Twitter should buy Substack. That’s crazy. Substack has raised $17 million dollars, which means that it would cost Twitter well over $100 million to acquire the company. Twitter can recreate Substack for much less than $100 million, with better functionality.
Twitter should build its own blogging and newsletter product, with a text editor, email send, analytics, referrals, custom domains, an ad-network, and easy ways for writers to grow their lists by selling promoted tweets based on follower and subscriber lookalikes, and the interest graph.
Additionally, Alex Carter suggested that Twitter should build a standalone podcasting app. That’s one approach, and it makes a lot of sense. It’s hard to share clips, notes, or anything other than an entire podcast, and Twitter could improve that.
Another approach would be to team up with Spotify. Spotify has spent a lot of money to acquire valuable IP like Gimlet, The Ringer, Joe Rogan, Kim Kardashian, and The Obamas, and is working on building out a podcast ad network. Spotify would expand its reach and improve targeting, and Twitter would earn some of the revenue it helps Spotify generate.
Why would Spotify do that? Remember, Twitter’s mean in this scenario 😈. Spotify links don’t preview anymore? Oops. Podcast discovery happens on Twitter, and Twitter should capitalize on that.
Beyond newsletters and podcasts, Twitter can give Creators myriad ways to monetize: storefronts, an expert network, paid communities, access to audio-only rooms, online events, and more. Creators might even sell bundles of their own offerings to superfans, and automatically give discounts based on retweets and referrals. Twitter is in the strongest position to integrate payments and growth, and let Creators do the rest.
Based on very rough math, this could be a $2 billion opportunity for Twitter almost immediately. Nothing would expand the Creator TAM more quickly than Twitter getting this right.
4. Make Profiles Incredible Places to Hangout
Twitter Profiles are the most underdeveloped real estate on the internet. Right now, when you click on someone’s profile, you see 160 characters on them and their most recent tweets. It’s such a huge miss. Because it’s not in the main feed, Twitter should be a lot more experimental with Profiles. Someone’s Twitter profile should be a glimpse into their world, and Twitter should both create its own features and open up its API to make that happen.
Imagine clicking on my Profile and popping into a Roadtrip experience. I’m DJ’ing my favorite songs and we’re having a conversation about the day’s tech news. People that I follow can join for free, non-follows could pay me a small fee.
I could highlight what I’m reading (assuming someone finally makes a better Goodreads), my NewsletterStack, my favorite Spotify podcasts, and the products I recently hunted on ProductHunt. I could invite accredited investors to join the Not Boring Syndicate, and show off the performance of the Not Boring Portfolio.
My Twitter Profile would be what a LinkedIn Profile would be if it were a living, breathing thing, created in and for 2020, based on what I’m currently creating and consuming.
Of course, since I’d host my newsletter on Twitter Create, there would be a subscribe button front and center, with links to the three most recent posts. If you enjoy your experience in my little corner of Twitter, you could hit a button to tip me so that I can keep creating.
Oh yeah, and with all of that engagement, maybe Twitter could even build an ad network to let relevant companies sponsor my profile, finally creating an ad product that makes sense 😉
Hit the Road(map), Jack!
Twitter dodged a bullet five years ago when it refused to pay Vine’s stars. It’s not a social network, and it’s not a product for passive entertainment. By not building in that direction for the past five years, Twitter left itself a clean slate on which to build a product for its real customers.
Twitter is a professional network for the Creators whose ideas and products shape the conversation and the world. It should be proud of that. Twitter needs to get its swagger back, and a full reset on priorities and a bold new vision would do just that.
The path that I laid out has the potential to double revenue in short order, and we didn’t even have time to cover how companies might engage with all of the new functionality that Twitter builds for its creators. Company profiles with Shopify integrations would be so clean.
I’m bullish on Twitter if for no other reason than how much I and so many others still love and rely on it, despite all of its shortcomings. Twitter creates so much value, and it’s time that it captures it.
Jack - if you have any questions, you can find me @ packym, on Twitter.

2020.07.08 15:42 mozang The future of Chelsea under Frank Lampard

Many of us will have started to notice patterns in the players we have recently been linked with, Frank’s responses in press conferences, and our new tactics since the restart. I thought it’ll be interesting to join the dots, so I am sharing an interpretation of what we can expect from the team under Frank Lampard, i.e., what tactics we will play, what personnel will fit, and what kind of recruitment will be made to plug the gaps. [This is just an interpretation based on bits and pieces of evidence I have collected; feel free to share your thoughts. Long piece, I know, but worth the read, I hope!]
TLDR: Frank’s tactics draw significantly upon the Chelsea side he himself played in, most significantly from Ancelotti’s Chelsea, with shades of Mourinho’s pragmatism when necessary. He favours a defensive-minded midfielder (Makelele/Essien, and Kante) to protect the centre-backs, the pair of which should have the ideal mix of tactical intelligence, physical presence, aerial dominance and communication (Terry-Carvalho, and almost but not quite, Zouma-Christensen). He prefers two box-to-box midfielders ahead of the defensive mid (Lampard-Ballack, and almost but not quite, Mount-Barkley), and full-backs who can similarly balance attack and defence across the touchline (Ivanovic-Cole, and Azpi/Reece-but not quite Alonso/Emerson).
The players we have been linked with — Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Declan Rice — all provide missing pieces to the tactical puzzle, with similarities to their past counterparts — Ashley Cole, Michael Ballack and John Terry, respectively — but also with very important differences, both positive (their flexibility) and negative (their inexperience at the top level). If these transfers go through, however, it could come at the expense of both experienced players (Willian, Jorginho, Kovacic, and potentially, Koulibaly and Tagliafico), and exciting young players from our academy (Tammy, RLC, CHO, Tomori, Ampadu and Billy).
We could hence lose some of the promising progress on academy development from this season, and nevertheless fail to mount a serious title challenge in the immediate future. That is the price we must pay, however, in order to build a solid foundation of a team who can be serious challengers in England and Europe for many years to come, much like we had in the decade after Roman took over. There are very good reasons to be excited about our football in the near future, especially with Frank’s impressive first season as manager, and the club working towards a coherent long-term vision for the first-team.
___________________________________________________

The Kante conundrum

There was a huge debate on this sub in pre-season about Kante’s best position. The “box-to-box midfielder” camp felt vindicated when Frank picked up where Sarri left off, playing him ahead of Jorginho. Since the restart, Frank has unexpectedly done a volte-face, with Kante sitting ahead of the defence and Jorginho frozen out. Anyone who has followed Frank’s tactics at Derby will understand why: he always preferred a mobile defensive-minded midfielder to protect the space in front of the centre-backs in transition. This is very similar to Fernandinho’s role at City: he has basic capabilities to keep, rotate and progress the ball, but his main advantage is his tactical intelligence in snuffing out counters at their origin, leaving the centre-backs free to physically contest the forward during hold-up play, intercept passes, and track back to guard the box.
City’s shift from Fernandinho to Rodri, and Chelsea’s experience with Jorginho under Sarri, exposes the defensive weaknesses in playing a technical player in that position, especially in the PL, where teams at the bottom are experts at defending with low blocks and hitting back with strong hold-up play, efficient long balls (and second balls), and speedy runners — neither of which players like Rodri and Jorgi are well-equipped to cope with. Sarri and Guardiola are quite fixated on their possession-based tactics, however, and they have tried various workarounds (like inverted full-backs) to fit a technical player in the pivot, with mixed results.
Sarri himself relied on flanking Jorgi with Kova and Kante: both players are inclined to sit deeper, which meant we were much less effective in the forward play, and almost useless without Hazard to break the lines. Neither did this strategy help much, as Kova and Kante would often join the forward play when the low block wouldn’t break, fail to contribute much going forward, only to leave Jorgi stranded in transition when long balls would bypass the protecting midfielders. We were ultimately outscored by all other sides in the top 6, with half of our goals either scored or assisted by Hazard, and we nevertheless had to suffer the ignominy of those defeats against Bournemouth and City. In the Serie A, Sarri has had better results with this approach: Bentancur, Rabiot, Matuidi and Khedira haven’t scored a single goal between them, but they have supported Pjanic well enough for Juventus to have the best defensive record — even better than Conte’s Inter.
This shows that sacrificing cover in transition for incisive build play in the pivot is clearly not feasible in a league like the PL, and Frank has no doubt reflected much on this dilemma during the break — particularly the fact that only Villa have conceded more goals than us from counter-attacks. Frank initially stuck with Jorgi in the pivot since the team was used to it (not to mention Kante was injured) but the break finally allowed him to ingrain his tactical vision into the team — which is mainly inspired from his playing days under two of the modern game’s best managers, Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti.

The false three-at-the-back

The main debate on Kante’s position has revolved around whether he has the ball-playing capabilities to operate in the “Makelele role”. While our sharpness in ball progression from the back has clearly declined, Kante has silenced the naysayers by maturely managing every minute of the restart in that position until his injury — even a hugely demanding game against City. His role is now somewhere between Makelele under Mourinho and Essien under Ancelotti: he is not as proficient at playing the ball forward as the former, but he ensures that we effectively have at least three players to defend at all times.
Several teams use different configurations of such a “false-three-at-the-back”. Apart from Fernandinho at City, United have recently plugged Matic in between the centre-backs to allow the Pogba-Fernandes duo to flourish, to great effect. Even Conte’s Chelsea used Luiz in a free role somewhere between sweeper, centre-back and DM. The logic is simple: if it is a sitting/central player like Matic or Luiz, then the centre-backs drift wide to operate as ad-hoc full backs in transition (made more effective with players like Azpilicueta). If it is a mobile destroyer like Fernandinho or Kante, the centre-backs drift back to cope with the forward, while the destroyer moves into the zone where either the counter is being initiated, or runners are bursting in (both, if the player is as tactically intelligent as Fernandinho or Kante).
Almost all these teams rely on two additional players to support the three-at-the-back: Pep was most successful with inverted full-backs in Walker and Delph; Conte had Kante and Matic ahead to make defensive triangles and give time for the wing-backs to track back; Mourinho was famous for using defensive full-backs in the season we only conceded fifteen goals: Paulo Ferreira wasn’t the most adventurous right-back, Gallas was effectively a centre-back, but he played on the left in lieu of Bridge, and when Huth played right-back, we actually had four centre-backs in an impenetrable defensive line, protected by Makelele ahead.

The box-to-box eights

While Frank occasionally resorts to Mourinho’s pragmatism in certain situations (like the City game), the system he draws upon most is Ancelotti’s Chelsea. Cole and Ivanovic were reliable trackers, but even Frank and Ballack were effectively box-to-box: this meant that the two players to support the three-at-the-back were fluid, which worked because the four tasked with that responsibility were amongst the most tactically intelligent players, who each had a strong understanding of each other’s movements by then.
Although this was not the most reliable strategy defensively, most teams would sit back against us, so the game was to overwhelm and outscore them. Our points total was lower than Mourinho’s title-winning seasons, but we routinely scored 4+ goals, not just winning the title but entertaining greatly while we were at it. The system started to crumble as the players aged, however, and it suffered greatly from Essien’s recurrent injuries.
Frank no doubt remembers his best playing days in midfield alongside Michael Ballack, who was an advanced goal-scoring midfielder before shifting to a deeper playmaking role at Chelsea to enable Frank’s forward runs. It’s no surprise then that we are being linked with Kai Havertz, a German midfielder with many similar attributes. Havertz has been used as a number 8, a number 10 (centrally, or on the right-wing), and a false 9, but wherever he is formally deployed, he invariably operates most on the right side of zone 14 (outside the box).
He has excelled previously as a free 8 in a 4-3-3, progressing the ball elegantly with his link-up play and expansive long passes into space, before arriving between the lines, where he combines deft short passes, intelligent movement, swift runs in behind, late runs into the edge of the box, and clinical fishing, to great effect. Havertz could potentially line up alongside Mason Mount in a similar German-English number 8 pairing (although there are still questions over the former’s defensive work-rate). Mount hasn’t dazzled in terms of goals and assists per se, but his spectacular performances of late have shown just how much he brings to the team beyond statistics, making it clear why he has featured in every game this season. He is not just the ideal box-to-box number 8 in Frank’s system, but his tactical intelligence and industry would enable Havertz’s forward movements.
Frank’s recent comments corroborate this preference for two box-to-box number 8s in front of a defensive number 6:
“I spoke of it the other night after the game about teams with low blocks who make it difficult for you. To be able to get players who can arrive with technical ability high up the pitch and around the box and find a pass and take someone out of the game with a skill or finish... It’s big in those games if we feel like we’re going to have a lot of control.
Generally, with the midfield, I do like midfield players who can perform, not all the roles but can play high, can play on the side, can do the defensive duties and Mason really has that. His work off the ball is fantastic for us and if I feel like getting him high up the pitch to put more pressure on the other team if they want to play out, that can help us off the ball. Sometimes I’ll ask him to do a slightly different role with the ball where he comes deeper to make sure he’s not missing out on the ball because he’s a good player and needs to be on the ball deeper.
Himself and Ross [Barkley] can perform that kind of role. Kovacic can perform that kind of role. Ruben Loftus-Cheek can perform that kind of role. N’Golo Kante can perform that kind of role. Billy Gilmour can. Jorginho also can but his role predominantly in his career has been from a deeper position. I had those good problems within the team. I like to work on the midfield, making it as fluid as it possibly can be so we give teams problems. Some performances recently, Watford being one the other day, Everton before lockdown I saw a real fluid movement of the midfield which I really liked. We have to continue to work on that.”

The fluid full-backs

This further explains some interesting trends we’ve recently seen in the full-back department. Alonso’s instant omission after the debacle against West Ham is noteworthy, especially since Frank chose to sacrifice his aerial presence after a game when he himself stressed the need for taller players. Gary Neville summed up Alonso’s main weakness in the commentary box: “He has two speeds, one running forward, and one running back”. His failure to track Yarmolenko back during the final West Ham counter was the dealbreaker for Frank: you can be hugely effective in the attacking phase, but the system entirely fails if full-backs fail to manage the transition reliably.
That’s exactly why the links with Chilwell make a lot of sense: he is young, he has pace, he understands the English game very well, and most importantly, he balances going forward with tracking back well. It’s no surprise that he got a testimonial from Ashley Cole, who himself struck the balance between defense and attack expertly in Ancelotti’s fluid system. Frank surely believes that he can train Chilwell into a top full-back to meet his tactical demands perfectly, otherwise he wouldn’t be pushing so hard for his transfer. His full-backs don’t have to be creative playmakers like Trent and Robertson, neither do they need to be defensive rocks like Gallas and Ferreira — they mainly need to balance ball progression along the flanks with recovery runs in transition.
On the other side, in Ancelotti’s system, Ivanovic loved to stay deeper (as a converted centre-back) and drive in crosses from deeper positions. Azpi is not just brilliant defensively, he is our top assist-maker this season, but the similarities to Reece are even greater (notwithstanding his shaky performances of late). Reece’s crossing is quite obviously his greatest asset, but the most interesting development in the Watford game was his occasional shift to support Billy as an additional defensive midfielder / inverted full-back. It’s exactly this kind of tactical fluidity that Frank wants to see from his players: the ability to move into spaces depending on the run of the play.
The alternating movement of the full-backs and the 8s has another advantage that makes it appealing to a manager who likes to adapt his tactics game-by-game: it can be customized according to the opponent’s strengths and weaknesses, depending on where they are most dangerous, or the most vulnerable, i.e., from the middle or the wings. In an ideal situation, the team can be highly compact when defending a lead (think: our solid defensive structure versus City), and highly dangerous when trying to overturn a deficit (think: Ivanovic’s winner against Napoli, and Chilwell’s recent banger against Watford).

Leading from the back

As far as the back two are concerned, Rudiger’s replacement with Zouma in the past two games shows that Frank would prefer to partner a tactically intelligent centre-back like Christensen with a physically strong, aerially dominant, and commanding centre-back, similar to the Terry-Carvalho partnership. All our centre-backs are poor communicators though, so it is no surprise that Declan Rice is being considered as the Terry counterpart, as it is unsure whether Zouma has the leadership and quality to hold a first-team spot in the long term, in spite of his excellent defensive performances against Watford and Palace.
In fact, The Times recently noted that Frank sees Rice as a successor to Terry. The Athletic too ran a piece on why Chelsea are interested in Rice as a centre-half: “He is commanding, has an aura about him and importantly talks/communicates really well… He can play at the back really well because he has played there all his life. He’s a good passer of the ball too… He is young and English too so you can see how he would fit in with what Chelsea are building there. A young squad that can play together for years to come.”
The added advantage of Rice is his ability to play as a defensive midfielder. After Kante's injury from being overplayed after the restart, along with Jorginho’s calamitous fall down the pecking order, Frank had a huge selection headache for the Palace game: who could possibly replace Kante? Billy got the nod, but much like many of the other younger players, he has struggled for consistency without a proper period of preparation. The huge space in the centre of the park where the Palace players combined before Zaha unleashed his rocket testifies to the need to play a defensive-minded player in that area of the pitch. While Jorginho definitely calmed the tempo down to dampen the onslaught towards the end, we still gave away sitters. The lesson to be learnt is simple: we need a replacement for Kante.
In fact, we haven’t ever had a reliable replacement for Kante, which has consistently resulted in him being overplayed and subsequently injured (Conte’s second season, and then the Europa League final). Frank himself noted that Kante is 29 and he needs to manage his fitness differently, but clearly he can’t afford to make the same mistakes as his predecessors, so he needs to find a solution. Rice’s talent in delaying and breaking up attacks during transition could be crucial in providing a much-needed option in that position.

Rebuilding experience

So it’s clear then: Ben Chilwell, Kai Havertz and Declan Rice are all players we have been linked with, mainly because their attributes provide all the missing pieces to the foundation that Frank wants to build at Chelsea for many years to come — a foundation built from the pieces of our best memories of Chelsea under Mourinho and Ancelotti, during Frank’s peak playing days. Many of our (potential) new additions are capable of playing in different positions, fitting well with Frank’s own flavour of versatility in his tactical system. After the outlay on Werner and Ziyech, would we have the budget to sign all three of these players?
Each of their present clubs could find themselves in a precarious situation, leading to a cut-price deal. Leverkusen have already missed out on the CL; Leicester have fallen behind us to fourth place after last night’s draw against Arsenal, and they face another challenging game in North London before a final day showdown against United; and West Ham must battle it out in six-pointers against Villa and Watford to avoid relegation. Moreover, these additions would almost obviate the need to re-invest in subsequent years, especially if the cost is staggered in installments. It’s also expected that for each addition, there should be a departure to counterbalance it: for example, it looks as though Emerson is heading out to Inter, which could offset the spend on Chilwell.
In spite of his cameo last night, it looks like Jorginho is on his way out as well, as he doesn’t fit Frank’s new midfield system. Much like Pedro and Emerson, Frank seems reluctant to rely upon players who are set to be playing elsewhere next season, and it’s entirely possible that he has had honest conversations with Jorgi about his reduced role in the first-team after shifting Kante deeper in midfield, with Jorgi indicating that he would prefer to leave for regular football elsewhere. His potential loss should not be underestimated: he is our current vice-captain, an important leader in the dressing room, an experienced professional, and a clinical penalty-taker.
Many of these qualities would be equally lost in Willian (and Pedro), signalling an exodus of much-needed experience to balance a young team. Moreover, signing Rice and Chilwell precludes us from going for more experienced counterparts in the market, such as Koulibaly and Tagliafico. If that is the case, we are unlikely to mount a serious title challenge in the immediate future. After all, look at the current champions: the ideal blend of youth and experience, with key players at the peak of their careers.
But their example should teach us another thing: as Klopp himself said recently, it was their experience of losing a CL final and a title race that spurred them on to win the next one. Frank knows this better than anybody else, after enduring through our long journey to the CL trophy. And so, this is exactly what he intends to build: a team that bleeds together for the coming few years, until it learns what it takes to win, setting the foundation for a team that can compete at the highest tier of English and European football for many years hence. We gain experience in the long-term by sacrificing it in the short-term: we don’t get the assurance of Jorgi or Willian stepping up to take a penalty at key junctures, only for the younger players to learn how to cope with the pressure.

The academy and the warchest

Frank’s trust in the academy graduates this season has given us much to feel optimistic about, and still, it is our new transfers that may alienate them yet again. Rice’s transfer will likely mean that Tomori will have to be loaned out. It would further foreclose any opening for Ampadu, who can similarly play across defence and midfield. His difficult spell at Leipzig means he would be loaned out again to a team that can promise him first-team action, which is probably for the best. While Billy might be expected to go out on loan in any case, the key issue here is whether he has the defensive ethic to play number 6 in Frank’s system. Especially after last night’s shaky defensive display against Palace, one would expect Rice to be ahead in the pecking order.
Frank indicated earlier that Billy can play in the number 8 position as well, but with Havertz’s addition, that position will certainly be crowded. Mount and Havertz would stake the strongest claim, which would effectively render Kovacic, RLC, Barkley and Billy as squad options. While most of this sub would be happy to see the back of Barkley, some of our best performances this season have come when he has played, as seen in our superior win percentage with him in the team. He is a more than capable squad player: bought at a bargain, happy to take the opportunity when coming off the bench, and moreover, he executes Frank’s tactical instructions expertly.
There is a reason for that: he has matured immensely over the past couple of seasons under the tutelage of Sarri and Frank, into a well-balanced midfielder. I read a piece earlier this season (can’t find the link now) on how Frank has transformed Barkley from a player who would struggle to make decisions in the final third, into a repurposed Kovacic, using his ability to drive from deeper positions to great effect, which we first saw in the emphatic victory against Burnley. Alongside Mount, he perfectly balances the box-to-box movement of the number 8s, more than happy to do his defensive duties, which worked out well against City, Leicester and Watford. Setting aside the caricatured “Rooooossss” for his recent performances then, he makes the best claim to be a squad option in number 8.
There was a great hype around the return of RLC, especially after it was reported that he had a great pre-season before the restart. But he’s looked like a shadow of the player we saw towards the end of last season before his injury, and now Frank has suggested that we might only see the real RLC next season. If he returns to his levels, as we all hope he will, he should be pushing Mount and Havertz for a first-team spot; but without regular first-team action, the addition of Havertz may just make it harder for him to establish himself once more.
Prior to the suspension, few would have disputed Kovacic’s claim to being our player of the season. After just a few rounds of fixtures since the restart, there are suddenly new candidates for the position: Pulisic, Mount and our veteran captain Azpilicueta (who gets my vote, for sure!). I would argue that this has everything to do with the change in tactical system: Kovacic is the ideal foil for Jorginho, as we saw in Sarri’s reign and earlier this season, but he fails to carry the forward threat that Frank demands from his number 8s. Sadly, the only player in the squad who played at the necessary level against Bayern (in Frank’s assessment), may in fact face a similar fate as Juan Mata did once his talents failed to fit a new tactical system.
Apart from displacing many a potential number 8, Havertz can also be expected to deputize for Ziyech on the right-wing, which we might earlier have expected from CHO. This means that our bumper contract young player will too have to go out on loan — quite the fall from grace after having the pick of elite clubs not so long ago, especially with Frank questioning his contribution to the first-team recently. His contract has cast uncertainty on Tammy’s contract situation as well, and the future of yet another academy graduate could remain unresolved. Until his goal last night, Tammy’s season was looking uncomfortably similar to Morata’s first season: a prolific start to life, a struggle for consistency as the games came thick and fast, a fall in confidence, and then a distinct shift in body language for the worse. Just when we thought the curse of the number 9 had finally been lifted, it started rearing its ugly head once more.
Confidence is everything for a striker though (see: Vardy’s run-up to his 100th goal and his form thereafter), and Tammy’s interview after last night’s goal betrays shades of the player we all know he can be once more. As we all salivate over the prospect of an attacking trio of Pulisic-Werner-Ziyech, and as Giroud refuses to outlive his usefulness, can Tammy still prove that he is the successor to the King, as he indicated he might be after his iconic goal against Arsenal? Hopefully, his goal last night will set the pace for him to compete with our new additions. But apart from him and Mount, the others may have a much longer wait in their road to the first-team — if they arrive there at all.

The way forward

And so, the lessons from this season are mixed: just as we began to be excited about the academy finally getting its chance, the warchest has returned, and we are still caught between the conflicting desires to blood home-grown youngsters and compete at the level of the elite. The one thing that is clear though is that Frank is certainly the best manager to balance these contradictory pulls. He has defied all expectations this season with his resourcefulness and astute game-management, going head-to-head with the managerial elite and coming out victorious. He has given the academy a flavour of the first-team, and now he is challenging them to be worthy of it. The message is clear: I survived the original warchest era, can you? Some, like Mount, have responded with bravado, while some others might need to step it up a notch.
However things turn out, only the very best of our academy and our new signings will stay on to play in a tactical system that brings the best of Chelsea’s past together with the ever-changing demands of modern football. The future is fraught with challenges, but it certainly looks bright.

Grab your popcorn, people!
I heard a crackle and a deep sigh. "Hi, Cat," Jess said quietly over the phone. "It's been a while."
"Hey," I said. "Figured I'd best let us both think over everything."
"Always the clever one, aren't you? Always the one to come up with innovative ways to neglect me."
"I wasn't-"
"Yeah, you were. Talking to your partner is common courtesy. Hell, just remembering I exist would have been common courtesy. Didn't even have that in you," she said with another sigh. "Listen, we should probably meet up, yeah? Don't want to have this conversation over the phone."
"Yeah," I said softly. "My place?"
"If you promise not to kill me, yeah," she said. "Can I trust you with that much, even if I don't trust you with anything else anymore?"
I paused at the end of her sentence, pain searing through my body at her words. "You can trust me."
"Good. I'll be there soon." She hung up without waiting for a reply, and left me with a phone on my ear and a tear in my eye. To hear that she had stopped trusting me with everything hurt like a knife through my gut, and I threw myself on the bed again, feeling drowsy and dull.
This had to be it. If Theo was to be believed, I was leaving this life behind anyway. All that remained was getting myself ready for the moment. Figuring out how I was going to make it as painless as possible. Finding an excuse to tell her without revealing magic in my life. I didn't have the Handbook with me, so that was one less thing to ponder about.
I had known about this for weeks, I had all that time to think about my next move with her, and I'd somehow still put it all aside and found nothing to respond with. No matter which way I spun my stream of consciousness, I wasn't ready for this. I wasn't ready for that conversation with her.
With the dull feeling overwhelming my mind, I slipped out of time only to hear the lock turn and the door open. I leapt from the bed and fixed my hair to see Jessica slouching in the bedroom doorway, looking sweaty and sunburnt. "Hey," she said.
No kiss followed. No body language cues. Not even a step towards me. Her arms were crossed in front of her, and she glanced around, looking anywhere but my eyes. Glancing around myself, I realised she'd brought a gym bag. I dropped my head, closing my eyes and taking a deep breath. "Hi."
"I've missed you," she said.
"I've missed you t-"
"Liar."
I stood still, gritting my teeth and jutting my chin out. Was it an instinctive lie? Yeah, probably. I shook my head slightly, looking straight at her. "What do you want me to say?"
"The truth."
"I had to get away from everything. I had to go up," I said. "Told you that already."
"Some fucking good receptions in the mountains, can't fault them," she said. "And some fucking good sound deadening. Were you really in the mountains?"
I stayed silent. She'd caught on to me. No point in straight-up lying to her face. "No."
She sighed. "Thought as much. Why did I ever trust you in the first place? Why did I go with it beyond the one night?"
"You tell me," I said. "I only did what I could because I didn't want to let you die."
"Thank you for that," she said. "But I think you're not healthy for my heart anymore."
"What do you-" I stammered, as if I didn't know what was coming.
"I don't know what's true and what's not anymore with you. You're a web of partial truths and neglect, and while you're a wonderful person to spend time with, it's been so fucking long since I felt like you were excited to spend time with me," she said. Her face was flushing red against her pale skin, and she looked up with a glint of tears in her eyes. "You don't need me in my life."
"I-"
"Let me finish," she said, stretching her hand out. "I thought I wanted you. No, I did want you. And I think you did want me as well, but... I don't know. Something happened. You became so lost in your own world that I... I don't know. I felt like I was intruding. Like I wasn't part of it."
"I'm sorry," I said, looking down.
"We're past apologies," she sighed. "I've had weeks to think about this, which, thank you, I guess?"
"You're welcome," I said, cracking a smile as my face heated to a near-glow.
"You don't need me in your life, do you? And that's okay. You're not married to me. You're welcome to go it alone if you want," she said. "And since you don't need me, I'll do my best to stop needing you."
I took a deep breath. "Thank you for everything," I said softly. "Good luck with your life."
"I won't wish you luck," she said, her gaze now pointed straight at mine. She put her hands on her hips and breathed heavily. "Because the very least I could ever expect from you is respect, and you couldn't do so much as to give me that."
Her eyes filled with tears. "Every fucking thing I tried to make us be a proper couple, you just took it all for fucking granted, didn't you? Like it was obvious that it was a normal part of being in a relationship. I'm just wondering if you've ever dated anyone before."
"Of fucking course I have," I said. "Honestly, you would've ha-"
"You haven't learned much, then, have you?" she said. "Instead you just treated me like I was there for you every single fucking time, which, to be fair to me, I *was. *But did you ever fucking think how I felt, and about what I needed? I don't think you have."
"Again, I don't know what to tell you," I whispered.
"Don't fucking tell me anything. It's why I'm not wishing you luck. You don't know how to date, you don't know how to be a good person, and I don't want to be your fucking guinea pig. Read about relationships since you love the fucking libraries so much. Grow the fuck up before you let someone give you her life again, yeah?"
Every word of hers was louder than the last, and tears started streaming down her face as she delivered the final sentence. "I will," I said. "I promise."
"Not like your promises are worth fucking anything."
"Th-"
"Don't bother. Go fuck yourself. That's all."
She started walking around the flat, opening the closet and collecting her clothes that she'd stashed at mine. I stood still as she walked around me, unable to do so much as think about what she'd said. There wasn't much left, since I'd been away for so long, and the difference became striking when her gym bag was full.
When she'd picked everything up, she returned to the front door and looked at the key ring with the keys to my flat on it. "I guess you can have the ring as well," she said as she handed them to me.
"I guess this is goodbye."
"It is," she said, turning the key but not opening the door. "One more thing."
"Yeah?"
"I wanted to love you. I really did," she said. Her hands started to shake. "You didn't let me, though. Go be a secluded bitch in your own time and stop wasting everyone else's."
She opened the door and slammed it behind her, leaving me to lock it behind her. I stumbled over to the now empty bedroom, suddenly feeling her scent as it embedded itself into the walls around me. I took a deep breath, the final stages of denial washing over me. It was done.
Five months had passed like a breeze, and I sat down on the bed, realising how little I remembered from that relationship. I didn't know whether it was my brain acting up and refusing to remember or whether I really was the neglectful bitch that she'd called me.
My hands started glowing of their own accord. I smiled as I looked down at them, realising how long it had been since that had last happened. A single tear dropped on my glowing hand, and my whole body suddenly started shaking. The words she had said started making sense.
I'd thought about it myself multiple times before, but I never would have thought that I was completely neglecting her. I thought we would be okay, somehow, fuck, she *said *we were okay. But no, I couldn't see past the things in front of my face. I couldn't see past my drive to do magic.
That was the thing about magic, though, wasn't it? One thing always opened up a little bit more, another area to dig for knowledge. It structured itself to keep leading me on, and I had become ensnared in its trap.
On the other hand, though, could I say that it was ruining my life? No. I enjoyed it. Being up there and just doing magic was more fulfilling than years and years of engineering, schools and constant human interaction. We all have our priorities in life, don't we?
Still, though. Still. She had opened herself up to me, for one reason or another. She trusted me. I took everything she gave me and acted like it was meaningless. Like she was less worthy than I was. Like she was any less human, when she was probably more human than I ever would be.
Yeah, she was right. I was a bitch. Even more so now, after months of magic. And I had Christensen to thank for lots of it. Theo had given me the Handbook, but Christensen showed me into the library. Theo had thrown me out the door, Christensen gave me a torch and a walking stick.
I mean, yeah, I wanted to do magic, but he never warned me how addictive it was. The fuck did he know, though, he was as dry as gunpowder. He wouldn't know how much it drove someone to keep learning, keep diving deeper. He would never know.
Because he didn't fucking know how important this was to me, he never told me about Edinburgh's front door. He didn't know, he didn't care, and he just sent me on my way without so much as a waypoint.
Not like I should have been surprised. He was very vocal in his lack of care for mages, after all. The fucker decided to... No, wait. Fuck. Not even that made sense. There wasn't any reason for him to keep me in the dark all these months and then not tell me about the front door.
Almost like he wanted me to make all the bad decisions myself. Maybe if he'd told me, I wouldn't have been as disoriented. Maybe this would have been done months earlier. Maybe, just maybe, I would never have hurt Jess.
His guidance led me here. He'd indirectly shaped me into a bitch. He would get a bitch.
I just wanna say thank you all for reading <3 I hope Cat and Jess' relationship felt as genuine as I could make it while not being a woman.

2020.06.20 11:40 ariesxslytherin am i asexual?

warning: this may not make sense i'm confused right now.
i've been questioning myself lately. i know i'm bisexual, i've known since i was 13 (i'm 19 now) but i think i might be asexual too? i really don't know. i feel attracted to people, like if someone is objectively hot (for example my eternal star wars crushes, natalie portman and hayden christensen) i think they are hot and i can be like "oh yes i'd love to sleep with natalie portman" but i actually don't? like theoretically yes but i don't feel that sexual "sparkle" (sorry it sounds cringey)
i have a partner and they have asked how i feel about sex and while we have been intimate (just not sex), i don't really feel a connection to it when it happens. i want to (i think?) but it's just not necessary/appealing to me. all my friends in high school talked about having sex and making out with people and while i want this intimate connection with someone, kissing and having this emotional link, i dont' really have a need for the rest.
sorry if this doesn't make sense at all and sorry if there are any grammar mistakes.

2020.06.15 22:35 Novalis0 Seven reasons why police is disliked

A longer read, but worthwhile imo:
A theme of protest demonstrations since late May 2020 is that police violence persists despite previous episodes of public outrage and efforts at reform. The problem has not been solved, including by the protests themselves.
Police violence was prominent in triggering the uprisings of the 1960s. The two most destructive riots were both started by police arrests: Newark in June 1967 (26 dead); Detroit in July 1967 (43 dead). In Newark 5 days of riots began after a taxi driver was arrested; in Detroit, when police attempted to raid a popular after-hours club, patrons fought back by attacking police cars; backup was called and eventually the National Guard; fighting with snipers, arson and looting lasted 4 days. The pattern continued in riots over the acquittal verdict in the Rodney King beating by the LAPD in 1992, and a long series of highly publicized cases through the Ferguson Missouri protests of 2014 and down to today.
There have been occasions where police have been adulated; notably in the public ceremonies so prominent in the months after the 9/11/2001 attacks, when police and firefighters were repeatedly honored for their sacrifices at the Twin Towers. On the other side of the ledger, there are a series of reasons why large portions of the public -- not just African-Americans-- dislike the police, and will join in protests against them.
[1] Police are used for collecting fines for municipal budgets. This has been a long-standing practice in speed traps, where heavy fines are levied on drivers, usually on highways outside of town; since locals know where the speed traps are, it falls mostly on strangers (similar to resting your budget on hotel taxes in popular tourist destinations). Cities where there is strong resistance to tax increases, or which have serious budget short-falls, often explicitly adopt the policy of increasing fines for all sorts of infractions. It then becomes the police duty to seek out offenses, however trivial; they are expected to produce at high rates, sometimes with quotas set by police officials (Moskos 2008). This was a notorious practice in Ferguson, where the protests began after police shot a young man who defied an order about walking in the street.
In Philadelphia, Alice Goffman (2014) showed how computerization of court records and police communications has intensified pressure on persons (mostly minorities in the ghetto) who have some kind of previous record. Offenses may range from drugs to violence to gang association; police stops on the street immediately run a computer check in their car, above all for outstanding warrants. These often involve failure to appear for a court hearing, or failure to pay fines, since the penalties for everything include fines. It becomes a vicious cycle as fines mount up. The courts are overburdened, and this combined with attempts to reduce over-sentencing to prison, results in most offenders being released but required to make future appearances and pay fines which they can’t afford. Persons caught up in the system no longer can get a bank account, a legitimate job, or driver’s license -- which generates further fines. Police, as the front-line enforcers of the system, are understandably unpopular. On their side, police also regard the criminal justice system as a revolving door.
[2] Police are used for enforcing unpopular regulations. A long history includes prohibition on alcohol (now mostly passé except for prohibitions on young people); prohibitions on marijuana (ditto). All of these promote counter-cultures of defiance. There have been many examples during the stay-at-home lockdowns during the coronavirus plague. Public parks have been closed, playing ball prohibited, beaches and/or their adjacent parking lots are closed; children’s playgrounds roped off. In many instances, ordinary people find these prohibitions inconsistent or irrational-- areas closed even if people maintain their distance; young people who have heard the statistics and know that their chances of surviving the coronavirus are above 99 percent. It appears that another counter-culture of defiance is building up today, likely to become exacerbated during the phase of opening up public activities under a regime of masking and social distancing. To a considerable degree, this coincides with conflict between age groups.
What many people regard as trivial offenses can escalate when officials enforce the rules. In San Diego, a black man walking his dog in a state park (actually the old Spanish settlement) was accosted by park rangers; when he refused to leave, they called police backup, who arrested the man; when exiting the police car downtown, he slipped his handcuffs, ran away, and was shot and killed. His mother said he was schizophrenic and did not understand the order to wear a face mask. (San Diego Union-Tribune, May 6, 2020) This is the archetype of many such events: one damn thing leads to another.
[2a] Police hypocrisy and cynicism. In both [1] and [2] police are required to carry out the dirty work of government. When this becomes the primary part of their job, it makes them cynical and hardened. They know that it doesn’t necessarily make sense to punish harmless violations, or that they are lying when they say their city-mandated increase in traffic stops are purely in the interest of public safety. In their own work lives, they are under a regime that demands hypocrisy; after a while, this unpleasant feeling turns into a bitter that’s-the-way-it-is. Like prison guards who have to play the role of the bad guy, they embrace the tough-cop image. (Striking descriptions of this are in Jennifer Hunt’s 2010 close-up ethnography of the NYPD.) Citizens who argue with cops about these things increase the tension; one reaction is to be more aggressive. Taking videos of the police is felt as threatening them; and this can lead to attempts at retaliation.
[3] Police dislike defiance. Jonathan Rubinstein (1973), a sociologist who joined the Philadelphia police in order to study their everyday life (similar to Peter Moskos in the Baltimore PD 30 years later), found that their number-one priority is to be the person in control in all encounters with civilians. For the most part, a cop is out there alone, or with a single partner; they are almost always outnumbered by civilians. Particularly in areas where they know they are unpopular, they feel it is imperative to not let things get out of control. They want to be the one who starts and ends the encounter, who sets the speaking turns (micro-sociology of conversation), who sets the rhythm of the interaction. Acts of defiance, whether micro-actions on the level of voice and gesture, or more blatant words and body movements, will cause a cop to increase their own aggressiveness in order to maintain dominance (Alpert and Dunham 2004). This a reason why trivial encounters with the police can escalate to violence far beyond what seems called for by the original issue.
[3a] Inner-city black code of the street emphasizes defiance. Elijah Anderson’s ethnography of black street life (1999; also Krupnick and Winship 2015) point out that in dangerous areas, where the police are distrusted, most people adopt a stance of being hyper-vigilant about threats and disrespect, and portray themselves as ready to use violence. Anderson says this is mostly a Goffmanian frontstage, a pretence at being tough designed to avoid being victimized. When dealing with the police, this leads to another vicious circle. Black people, particularly on their home turf, are more defiant of police than are whites; often this is no more than a confrontational way of talking, but these are micro-interactions that arouse police aggressiveness. Anderson notes that one reason people in the ghetto are wary of calling police is that they themselves may end up being arrested, because of the tone of these micro-interactions. Donald Black (1980), who pioneered observer ride-alongs in police cars, found that police arrested black suspects more than whites, but this happened when black people were defiant, which was more often than whites. Martín Sánchez-Jankowski (1991) in his gang ethnographies (including black, hispanic, and white) describes the culture of gang members as “defiant individualism.” The pervasiveness of the street code in black lower-class areas, even among the majority who are not sympathetic with a gang life-style, hardens mutual hostility between citizens and police.
[4] Police dislike property destruction. Anne Nassauer [2019] who studied protest demonstrations in the US and Germany by compiling videos of these events, was able to pin-point the conditions that led to a turning point where violence broke out. One of the major conditions was when police could see protestors destroying property, but were unable to do anything about it; this happened if they were under orders not to respond, or when they had relatively limited forces compared to the numbers of protestors. Normally police are concerned to prevent robbery and vandalism; it is one of their more favored duties, since they get to be the heroes protecting people. But now they are in a situation where they have to stand by and let it happen. This builds up their frustration. Although they may perceive that only a small part of the crowd is doing the destruction, they dislike the crowd for providing the opportunity to get away with it. Given further trigger events during the protest-- more on this in [5]-- police will take out their tension and anger on whoever is nearby in the crowd.
Property destruction in a mass demonstration puts police in a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don’t dilemma. If they take action against looters and arsonists, they get accused of whatever violence they use and casualties they cause. If they stand by and let the destruction happen, they are accused of neglecting their duty and not caring. Eye-witnesses to such scenes are particularly likely to be outraged (see letters to the editor in recent days).
[5] Adrenaline overload and forward-panic attacks on unresisting targets. When tension builds up, humans experience rising heart rate, driven by adrenaline. At a high level, perception narrows in, time becomes distorted, fine motor control is lost. Nassauer found that the level of tension is visible in videos: whether the police are in relaxed or tense postures, and similarly with the crowd. When tension builds up, from escalating gestures of confrontation, unexpected movements by crowd or police units, police getting surrounded and cut off, a trigger point sets both sides in action. Adrenaline is the fight-or-fight hormone; it produces generalized arousal of the large muscles of the body, but in what direction will it go? Police, like soldiers, are trained to respond to high adrenaline arousal by attacking. Most civilians, of the other hand, will run. But the one reaction feeds back on the other. The crowd suddenly running away is felt by the police as a release of their own tension into action.
In interviews (reported by Nassauer and others), police say they can see the crowd is divided between peaceful demonstrators and a small number of trouble-makers; but when the situation boils over, the crowd is infected by the violent ones. --This is how the police perceive it; what happens is that the panic of the crowd running away puts the police in an over-the-top rush of adrenaline in which their own perception is narrowed. When police rush forward, they become likely to strike those who have fallen down, or are screaming uncontrollably. The content of what people are saying is lost; all that is heard is the sounds and sights of out-of-control people. Since the police are trained to operate as a unit, officers who rush forward with their comrades tend to imitate what they do; if they are striking someone on the ground, it must be for good reason, and they will join in or protect them.
I have called this “forward panic” because it is like a panic flight where the overwhelming emotion of the crowd increases individuals’ adrenaline level; but in this case, the adrenaline is driving them forward, towards an easy target who have their backs turned, running away or falling down.
Police who have been in shoot-outs generally report that their senses are blurred, they have tunnel-vision, can’t hear the sounds of their own guns, don’t know how much time is passing (Artwohl and Christensen 1997). They also tend to fire wildly, with poor aim, and with an overkill of bullets as they empty their magazines. It is similar with those who deliver a large number of blows with their batons, or put their full weight on a captured suspect’s neck. It is the same in military massacres (with a higher level of casualties because of more weapons). There is the same time-sequence: a period during which tension has built up on both sides; a sudden tipping point when the tension is released; one side becomes incapable of resisting (because they are caught in a traffic jam, fallen in the mud, turning their back, running away); the result is hot rush, piling on, overkill.
In real-life situations, violence is usually incompetent-- in the sense that it often fails to hit its intended target, or hits the wrong target, or is disproportional to what is necessacry to prevail. Soldiers and police are much more accurate shooters on firing ranges than they are in the emotional conditions of real-life confrontation.The clichés of military and police officials refer to “surgical strikes” and proportionate response. But the military is all too aware of “collateral damage”, especially in counter-insurgency warfare, where violent enemies hide in the civilian population. This is a close analogy to confronting peaceful protests in which aggressive militants cover themselves.
[6] Police training for extreme situations. Police training tends to emphasize the worst-case scenarios. Knowing that firing in real-life situations is encumbered by high adrenaline, weapons instructors tell them to aim middle-mass-- the center of the body; don’t try to shoot for extremities like arms or legs (the cowboy movie myth of shooting a gun out of someone’s hand never happens). The result is, police shootings tend to be deadly. Emphasis also is on rapid reaction; in the worst-case scenario, the suspect is armed and dangerous; you have to train your muscle memory to react as quickly as possible.
There is sometimes training in how to calm dangerous situations, but this tends to be overshadowed by the quick reaction scenario: your life or someone else’s life is in danger; train yourself to react automatically.
Another process that enhances the atmosphere of worst-case scenarios is police communications. When police call for backup, they tend to emphasize the danger of the situation. When the call is propagated more widely, the message is propagated just as rumors are: the distinctive elements are dropped out as the message is repeated. A man on a highway overpass threatening suicide by jumping, will get transformed into the cliché-- suicidal and threatening to take someone else with him -- into armed and dangerous. This is how individuals end up getting shot dozens of times by an aroused network of converging cop cars. The distortion may start when a civilian calls in, starting with an ambiguous situation, which the police dispatcher (a civilian employee), transforms into the more conventional warning. This was the case with the famous incident in 2009 when a Harvard professor, a black man, arrived home and had difficulty getting his front door open, getting the taxi driver to help un-jam it. A well-meaning Harvard secretary passing on the street phoned to say a possible burglary might taking place, but did not mention anyone’s race on the 911 recording and said: “I don’t know if they live here and they just had a hard time with their keys”. The dispatcher transformed this into a house-breaking by two black men; the cop who showed up was restrained at first but reacted to the irate professor by arresting him.
Lesson: police training needs to be drastically reformed. And training for police dispatchers, as well as from one police car to another, needs to be instructed on how rumors are formed; and procedures to avoid inflammatory worst-case clichés.
[7] Racism among police. Some cops are racists. How many are there, and what kind of racists they are, needs better analysis. What kind? There is a difference between white supremacists of the pre-1960s period; stereotyping racists who think most black people are potential criminals; situational racists who react to black people in confrontational situations with fear and hostility; casual racists who make jokes. These aren’t insoluble questions; if ethnographers followed people around in everyday life and observed what they talked about and how they behaved in different situations, we would have a good picture. And there still remains the further question, does one or another degree of racism explain when police violence happens?
My estimate is that racism among police is less important a factor than the social conflicts and situational stresses outlined in points [1-6]. To put it another way, if we got rid of racist attitudes, but left [1-6] in place, how much would police violence be reduced? Very little, I would predict.
What can be done? And how likely is it to have effects?
Let’s go through the list.
[1] Collecting fines for municipal budgets. Getting rid of this corrupt practice would be important for reducing hostility between police and citizens; especially since it is a version of color-blind racism insofar as it targets poor black areas. But how to get municipal officials to forego money that can raised without taxpayer consent?
[2] Enforcing unpopular regulations. A solution would be to legalize more prohibited substances. It does raise a problem of trade-offs, such as deaths from fentanyl. And there are other kinds of prohibitions being invented from time to time, as in the coronavirus period. Some conflict of this sort is going to be with us for a long time.
[2a] If police don’t have to do the dirty work enforcing unpopular policies, they’d be a lot less cynical and hard-assed, and we’d get along better with each other. This depends on what we do about [1] and [2].
[3] The code of the street, ostentatious defiance. I think this is declining already, with the growth of a black middle class. On the whole, recent protest demonstrations are more civil than those of the late 1960s.
[4] Police anger at property destruction. This is a genuine dilemma; either way, bad feelings are created. If we had fewer riots -- if some of the other conditions get better-- this would be less of a problem. Caveat: racism and police violence are not the only things riots can be about; for example, the anti-globalization riots of the past decade in the US and Europe. We may well be headed towards increased class division in the future, among other things between the computerized elite (now riding out the coronavirus working from their nice homes) and the other two-thirds of the population whose jobs are steadily being replaced by computerized robots.
[5] Forward panic violence in policing demonstrations. There are ways that police (as well as everyone else) can learn techniques to monitor their adrenaline level, and to not rush into action until they have a clear perception of the situation and have reduced their heart rate by breathing exercises. This one is solvable. http://sociological-eye.blogspot.com/2016/10/cool-headed-cops-needed-heart-rate.html
This could go along in tandem with:
[6] Reforming police training. More than reforming police departments, we need full-scale investigation and reform of police academies. They need to get away from the emphasis on worst-case scenarios and the quick-trigger, muscle-memory approach to weapons training. As noted, civilian dispatchers as well as cops need better training about rumor propagation and its tendency to revert to stereotypes as messages pass along the chain.
[7] Police racism. If we have enough of these kind of reforms, this will take care of itself.
As of now, most calls for reforms reiterate long-standing demands for independent review boards and stronger penalties for police misconduct. Having a reform-oriented black police chief in Minneapolis did not solve the problem. It is dubious that the top-down approach would solve it, as long as the everyday conditions of police work go unchanged.

The distortion may start when a civilian calls in, starting with an ambiguous situation, which the police dispatcher (a civilian employee), transforms into the more conventional warning. This was the case with the famous incident in 2009 when a Harvard professor, a black man, arrived home and had difficulty getting his front door open, getting the taxi driver to help un-jam it. A well-meaning Harvard secretary passing on the street phoned to say a possible burglary might taking place, but did not mention anyone’s race on the 911 recording and said: “I don’t know if they live here and they just had a hard time with their keys”. The dispatcher transformed this into a house-breaking by two black men; the cop who showed up was restrained at first but reacted to the irate professor by arresting him.
Lesson: police training needs to be drastically reformed. And training for police dispatchers, as well as from one police car to another, needs to be instructed on how rumors are formed; and procedures to avoid inflammatory worst-case clichés.
[7] Racism among police. Some cops are racists. How many are there, and what kind of racists they are, needs better analysis. What kind? There is a difference between white supremacists of the pre-1960s period; stereotyping racists who think most black people are potential criminals; situational racists who react to black people in confrontational situations with fear and hostility; casual racists who make jokes. These aren’t insoluble questions; if ethnographers followed people around in everyday life and observed what they talked about and how they behaved in different situations, we would have a good picture. And there still remains the further question, does one or another degree of racism explain when police violence happens?
My estimate is that racism among police is less important a factor than the social conflicts and situational stresses outlined in points [1-6]. To put it another way, if we got rid of racist attitudes, but left [1-6] in place, how much would police violence be reduced? Very little, I would predict.
What can be done? And how likely is it to have effects?
Let’s go through the list.
[1] Collecting fines for municipal budgets. Getting rid of this corrupt practice would be important for reducing hostility between police and citizens; especially since it is a version of color-blind racism insofar as it targets poor black areas. But how to get municipal officials to forego money that can raised without taxpayer consent?
[2] Enforcing unpopular regulations. A solution would be to legalize more prohibited substances. It does raise a problem of trade-offs, such as deaths from fentanyl. And there are other kinds of prohibitions being invented from time to time, as in the coronavirus period. Some conflict of this sort is going to be with us for a long time.
[2a] If police don’t have to do the dirty work enforcing unpopular policies, they’d be a lot less cynical and hard-assed, and we’d get along better with each other. This depends on what we do about [1] and [2].
[3] The code of the street, ostentatious defiance. I think this is declining already, with the growth of a black middle class. On the whole, recent protest demonstrations are more civil than those of the late 1960s.
[4] Police anger at property destruction. This is a genuine dilemma; either way, bad feelings are created. If we had fewer riots -- if some of the other conditions get better-- this would be less of a problem. Caveat: racism and police violence are not the only things riots can be about; for example, the anti-globalization riots of the past decade in the US and Europe. We may well be headed towards increased class division in the future, among other things between the computerized elite (now riding out the coronavirus working from their nice homes) and the other two-thirds of the population whose jobs are steadily being replaced by computerized robots.
[5] Forward panic violence in policing demonstrations. There are ways that police (as well as everyone else) can learn techniques to monitor their adrenaline level, and to not rush into action until they have a clear perception of the situation and have reduced their heart rate by breathing exercises. This one is solvable. http://sociological-eye.blogspot.com/2016/10/cool-headed-cops-needed-heart-rate.html
This could go along in tandem with:
[6] Reforming police training. More than reforming police departments, we need full-scale investigation and reform of police academies. They need to get away from the emphasis on worst-case scenarios and the quick-trigger, muscle-memory approach to weapons training. As noted, civilian dispatchers as well as cops need better training about rumor propagation and its tendency to revert to stereotypes as messages pass along the chain.
[7] Police racism. If we have enough of these kind of reforms, this will take care of itself.
As of now, most calls for reforms reiterate long-standing demands for independent review boards and stronger penalties for police misconduct. Having a reform-oriented black police chief in Minneapolis did not solve the problem. It is dubious that the top-down approach would solve it, as long as the everyday conditions of police work go unchanged.

2020.05.26 02:23 iMakeWebsites4u On-Chain Metrics Show Ethereum Addresses Grow 350% From 2018 Figures

Ahead of Ethereum’s move to staking after its 2.0 “Serenity” update, investment and wallet activity on the network is increasing. The protocol has received a boost in recent times, driven by both institutional and technical factors.

ETH the Preferred Crypto?

Developments last month, and this, have primed Ethereum as an attractive crypto-investment, ahead of other altcoins and Bitcoin. Institutions have invested in and adopted the underlyingblockchainto create their own DLT-centric products.
Even Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, popular Bitcoin “maximalists” and founders of the Gemini Exchange, hold “large and material” Ether amounts, the twins revealed to Camila Russo of Defiant last week. They admitted leading a significant effort to acquire and “large” amounts of the altcoin after its launch in 2015.
On-chain metrics for Ethereum are booming. Insights byGlassnode, a blockchain and crypto analytics firm, show ether wallets have grown 350 percent since the currency’s all-time high value of $1490 in 2018.
The firm statedvia a tweeton May 25:
There are now 40 million #Ethereum addresses holding #ETH. That’s an increase of more than 350% since $ETH saw its ATH price in early 2018.
(Source: Glassnode)

DeFi May Be Reinvigorating ETH

DeFi projects may have to do with Ethereum’s increased popularity and the surge in wallet addresses. At the time of writing,data on Defi Pulseshows BTC-pegged ERC20 tokens, such as Wrapped Bitcoin and tBTC, outnumber the actual bitcoin stored on the latter’s lighting network.
Other projects are adopting the Ethereum blockchain for pegged currencies as well. MakerDAO, which recentlydiscontinuedthe SAI token, issued $4 million worth of DAI on Ethereum last week.
Tweeting aboutthe above development,MakerDAOfounder Rune Christensen told the transaction was “extremely” bullish for Ethereum’s long-term value proposition, adding:
*“This really showcases the latent demand for non-ETH assets, and it’s the beginning of a broader trend of DeFi acting as an economic vacuum that will eventually attract almost all value to the Ethereum blockchain.”*
Prominent investors are recognizing Ethereum’s value as well. Andrew Keys, partner at Digital Asset Management Advisors,wrote in a ConsenSys blogin January 2020 that the protocol’s market opportunity is “estimated at well over $80 trillion.”
Similarly, Spencer Noon of DTC Capitalbelievesthe public demand for ether tokens and the Ethereum blockchain has a significant connection.
There is a growing link between Ethereum utility and ETH demand. ETH miners have captured $3.5M in fees over the past 30 days,” said Noon, adding “we can see that the demand for block space is mostly driven by stablecoins and DeFi, which together account for >63% of fees paid.

2020.05.06 08:03 Bludddd23 What should we do about our Centre Backs

Defence is one of our weaker areas, we can all agree on that. Part of this lies down to Lampard‘s system which means that the defences pushes high and leaves gaps in the half spaces which makes it vulnerable. The other reason is also because the defence is not organised, there have been numerous occasions where players aren‘t picked up or closed down quick enough and we get punished as a result. I’ll ignore the left back position because it is clear cut that there will be reinforcements made in that area.
Taking a look at our Centre Backs - Rudiger, Christensen, Zouma and Tomori.
Rudiger is made out by some to be our best defender but that is not true statistically not true. Rudiger has the worst aerial duel percentage out of our defenders and more of our clean sheets have come without him in the side. He does provide leadership but his positioning is poor playing opponents onside too often
Christensen is possibly our best all rounded centre back. He is composed and good on the ball, however, he is quite timid. He’s been bullied numerous times this season, Everton a glaring example and his physical side is probably the biggest concern. The Premier League is a physical league and Christensen is possibly better suited to other leagues such as Seria A and the Bundesliga with his skillset.
Tomori has enjoyed a breakout season with Chelsea this season but has lost his place in the Starting XI recently. He has made errors but his speed is rapid, the fastest Chelsea centre back. He has the potential to be a very good centre back but the jury is still out on whether he will become an elite and starter for Chelsea. If he can replicate his performance against Liverpool in the 2-1 loss, where he had Salah in his back pocket than maybe he can.
Zouma divides opinion and is possibly mentioned as the first centre back we should sell. This is harsh and is only based on his ability on the ball. Zouma has improved his ball playing ability and whilst he can occasionally be error prone with the ball, he can pick out a nice long pass. Zouma is very good in a 1 on 1 situation and the best centre back we have in the air (he matches Van Dijk with his aerial duels won). Lampard has had to play Zouma on the left side of the defence which is where he isn’t best suited to, when Zouma is played on the right side of defence he performs better. We have seen this when he was partnered next to Tomori for the first half of the season - Zouma looked very comfortable however when Rudiger returned from injury he would push Zouma to the left side where he would sometimes struggle.
Chelsea struggles at Centre Back can be attributed to one thing - the lack of a Centre Back capable of consistently playing on the left side. Only Tomori is truly comfortable in this position although even he is possibly better on the right side. The issue - not many top class defenders are out there on the market, Koulibaly would be great but the high price tag is a hurdle. Umtiti is a great defender but he is injury prone. Gabriel Magalhães would be a good option as he is left footed but does he improve the defence. He is cheaper than the other mentioned options and would allow Zouma, Christensen or Rudiger to play in their favoured right side.
Ampadu is another option but there is uncertainty over whether Centre Back is his best position. Bringing Ampadu back to play in defence as well as signing another centre back would mean that 2 centre backs would have to leave us this summer. Realistically, only one will probably walk out the door.
What are your thoughts ? - Personally I would get rid of Rudiger as I don’t think he is our best defender and more of a liability than the likes of Christensen and Zouma. I rate Zouma highly I think he is terrific on the right side of defence but needs a capable left sided defender to partner him.

2020.04.09 12:54 SolHiemis [The Magician's Handbook] - Part 18

Another late chapter. I'm so sorry - I just couldn't focus last night, and I suppose it serves me right for not writing with a buffer, or doing everything at the last minute, like uni students do! If you want to throw things at me for being late, or tell me that it's okay (can't imagine why), feel free to do so in the comments.
Thank you all so much for reading. You're amazing.
After Victoria hung up on me, I sat on that couch, staring into the abyss, without so much as blinking. What did she want now? Did she learn everything she needed so quickly? She can't have. It took me days, and she had a more difficult time than I'd had.
As I kept staring into nothingness, the screen lit up again, this time with a message from Jessica. Are you okay? Please call me.
When I read the words, I felt a wave of tranquillity envelop me. I was a mess, but there was still someone who cared about me, not things that I could do or for which they could use me. I was her mess. Carried by the warmth, I stepped outside again, sheltered from the rain, and called her.
It didn't take her a single moment to answer. "FOR FUCK'S SAKE, CAT!" she shouted. "You had me worried sick, you!"
"Okay, okay, I'm sorry," I said. "Was a lon-"
"Long day, was it? Didn't even text me once. Don't you have reception in the library?"
"Listen, Jess," I said, trying to stay as calm as possible.
She sighed. "Yeah? I'm listening."
"You know I prefer to have my phone off when I'm studying, right?"
"Yeah. Helps you focus."
"So I don't text *while *I'm studying. I never have. You'd know this by now."
"I do know it," she said. She was quietening down, and the tone of her voice was mellowing. I was making sense, and she knew it. "I just wish you remembered me more often."
The last sentence hit me like a freight train. We both wanted the same thing --- to be important, to be desired. I wasn't giving her that. I was being a bad girlfriend. "Fuck," I said softly. "I'm so sorry, Jess."
"It's okay," she said.
"No, it's not. It's really not," I said, feeling a lump in my throat. "I'm really, really sorry."
"I just don't want to lose you," she said, dragging her vowels more than usual. I could hear the beginning of a cry.
Her cry, in turn, made the lump in my throat grow even faster, and I wanted nothing more than to go over to hers, hug her and tell her what she really meant to me, but a phone was all I had. It would have to do, just like so many times before. "It won't happen again."
She sniffed. "I'm not sure I believe you."
"Will you let me prove it?" I said, raising my tone, and with it, my eyebrows even though she couldn't see them. "Please?"
Another sniff followed, but after it, she fell silent. "Yes, Cat. I will. I do owe you my life, after all."
"Thank you," I said, breathing a sigh of relief. "See you tonight?"
"Yeah, of course," she said. "The usual place at eight?"
"I mean, apart from that. At mine?"
"We're going to yours after we're done with the girls, yeah," she said, and let out another loud sigh. "Cat, where are you going with this?"
"Come to mine for dinner, before we go out," I said. "Spend some time together, without alcohol. Just you, me, food and hot water."
"Right," she said. "I mean, I love working together, but I really shouldn't be commuting thrice instead of twice today. Really got lots of things to do, and so do you."
"I didn't mean to study. Or work," I said. "I want to be with you. The way we used to waste time."
As I said those words, I saw a brown figure split the unending grey of clouds and rain. Victoria. "Listen, I've got to go," I said. "Coming over?"
She puffed, but hummed soon after. I knew that hum. She was feeling vulnerable. "I'll be there at six."
"I miss you," I said.
"Oh, now you do?" she laughed. "Go, don't let me stall you."
I smiled and took a deep breath. Everything was okay, at least for the moment. "Bye," I hummed, and hung up.
Victoria approached me through the rain, and when she came closer, I noticed she wasn't carrying any kind of umbrella. She was soaking wet, but she didn't seem to mind it at all. "Hi, Cat," she said as she came under the shelter of the roof.
"Vicky, are you insane?" I said, looking at her. "No umbrella?"
"Why would I have one? It's more fun this way, isn't it?" she said, her tone bordering on singing. When she grinned from ear to ear, I couldn't help but smile and raise an eyebrow.
"You're having some crazy mood swings these days, aren't you?" I quipped. "Desperate yesterday, happy today, what's coming up tomorrow? I'm not sure I want to know."
She laughed and brushed her head against my shoulder. "You'll find out once we've all got a few drinks in us."
"You're really coming, aren't you?" I said. "How did Emma react when you texted her?"
"Oh, she fucking gave out at me," she said, her grin still unyielding. "She'll come around. Things heal, right? Add time, and things get better."
I scoffed. "Most of the time, yes. But since you're being secretive, I hope you understand we're all having a hard time trusting you."
Her grin faded. "Yeah, of course. Never mind that, let's go!"
"Down there?" I said, feigning surprise.
"Stop playing stupid," she said, and her smile returned. She dragged me by the hand, and we hailed the elevator once we reached its shaft.
While we waited for the cabin to appear, she turned to me and whispered in my ear. "I'd like to try to open it myself. Without you."
"Someone's confident," I whispered back. "Alright, go ahead."
The cabin reached the ground floor. When the doors opened, I almost expected one of the staff to be there to give out at us, but it was, thankfully, empty. We stepped in, and the doors closed behind us. Victoria stared at me, almost as if she was expecting something to happen.
"Go on, then," I said. "Open it yourself."
"I--- yeah, of course," she said. "The same way you did it?"
"You're not supposed to remember that, are you? Fuck," I said, but decided to leave her be. Surely the rules could be slightly bent in a time of crisis?
She smiled, and turned to the little screen showing the number. "Here goes nothing," she said, and placed a hand on the screen and another on the metal plating.
I raised my eyebrows, and she kept looking at her arms, apparently confused at what she'd just done. "So now I suppose I just---"she said and closed her eyes.
While I waited for her to figure it out, I wondered whether it was like this for every mentor. Whether it was always this dull while their student figured everything out. I looked at her, and she didn't seem to be in any sort of pain, but I could see her eyes move.
She suddenly grunted and pulled away from the panels, and the lift jerked before we started moving down. She'd done it. Once she collected herself, she opened her eyes and started laughing. "I did that," she said. "I actually did that." For a moment, I thought I could see a tear in her eye.
"What's next, then?" she said as we waited for our destination.
"You should remember, you've only been here yesterday," I said, smiling with her.
"Should I? Oh, right. Tunnel."
I nodded, and soon after, the doors opened. I didn't even bother with the suggestive lamp. She knew what to do. As soon as the darkness revealed itself, she lit her hands up, shining a path through the tunnel and onto its walls.
"God, this is so cool," she quipped as we walked through the tunnel. "How do you open that door at the end, though?"
"You said you wanted to do it yourself," I said. "Go ahead. Do it yourself."
She groaned, and I couldn't help but wonder how Christensen ever got himself through that door without me ever noticing. My first encounter with the library was a blur, but I remembered the distinct feeling of fear, and that Christensen was behind me, before suddenly being in the second tunnel. I didn't remember him passing through the door. I guessed I'd find out soon enough.
With small talk filling the time during the walk, we reached the big red door. "Okay, I guess I need to figure this one out, then," she said. "On my own."
"Yeah," I said. "Good luck. I'm not going anywhere."
I didn't know whether I was lying, but I remembered what she would experience now. Right about now, she'd start hearing the voice in her head. She had to go through it. She had to perform under pressure. The light in her hands dimmed, and I wondered whether she'd figured it out already.
She didn't make so much as a noise, and I became suspicious of it. The idea was to make her face the darkness to open the door, but she wasn't making so much as a noise, and I didn't hear the voice, either. Something wasn't right, and instead of standing in the darkness, I took the chance and gave myself light.
When I pointed my hand towards the end of the tunnel, I couldn't even see her. I could see the door, but it was blurred and fuzzy. When I put my hand out to try and reach her, I felt resistance to my motion. Not a hard wall, like the pathetic shields I was making, but something viscous. It felt a lot like putting my hand through honey. Of course there was a shield to make sure she was doing it herself.
At first, I was awed by how precisely the tunnel had been engineered to ward off the unworthy, but then I remembered who was on the other side of that shield. Victoria was in there, all alone, and she would be going through mental hell.
The shield suddenly failed, I felt my hand fall through, and I heard a scream. Victoria appeared, sitting on the floor, crying and screaming. I wasn't able to make out who she was crying for, but I ran towards her and crouched next to her. "Vicky. It's okay. I'm here."
"NO! GET AWAY!" she screamed. "I DON'T WANT TO DIE!"
"Vicky, it's me," I said, holding her shoulders.
"YOU LEFT ME! YOU LEFT ME JUST LIKE MARK DID! YOU UNGRATEFUL BITCH!" she screamed in my face. Mark? What did this have to do with her boyfriend?
"Vicky! Open your eyes," I snapped at her, putting her head in my hands. "I'm here now. Look at me."
She calmed slightly, but I needed a free hand to turn the light on. Holding her head was working, but I had to take that chance. She needed to see me. I moved both my hands away, and I could immediately hear her whimper before I held her hand with one of my own and lit up the other to give us light. "I'm here."
Her eyes were wide open, and she yelped at the sudden bright light. When I dimmed it, she looked at me, deep into my eyes. "You're here," she whimpered. "Why did you leave me?"
"There was a shield. I couldn't even see you," I said softly. "I'm so sorry, I didn't know that it was how it did that."
"How what did what?" she said, making me flinch and back away.
"How the tunnel made you feel pressure," I said.
"Wait, this happened on purpose?!" she said, raising her voice. "What kind of sick fucker makes people afraid on purpose?!"
"Apparently, it's to make you perform under pressure," I said. "Does it make sense?"
"No! No, it doesn't!"
I sighed. "I'm sorry. Come here."
"I--- I can't hug you right now. Forgive me."
"Might as well keep going, right? I'll open the door for you," I said.
"Not right now," she said. "Give me a moment."
I sat down next to her, shining a light at the tunnel we'd just come from. "Have your moment, then."
The silence we sat in made me hyper-aware of my own heartbeat for a moment, but she soon broke it. "I failed, Cat. I couldn't do what the design wanted of me."
"No, you didn't," I said. "You can always try again."
"I still failed. We're all meant to be able to do this, aren't we? All mages? How old are they when they first come here, anyway? What did Christensen tell you? Twelve?"
"Sixteen," I quipped. "Still doesn't mean anything."
"Yeah, it does," she whimpered. "I'm 24 and I couldn't do it myself. What does that say about me?"
"That it's never too late," I said. "Vicky. You went from barely being able to use light to triggering the elevator in a day. It took me almost a week to figure that out. No joke."
She heaved for a short while longer, but eventually calmed down as I held her hand with my own free hand. "Okay," she said with a long exhalation. "Let's go."
I nodded and helped her back on her feet, before turning to the door. "What I'm going to do is not how you're meant to open this door, just so you know."
"Alright, if you say so."
I pressed my free hand against the door frame. The lock inside it clunked and I pulled it open with my lit hand, shrouding us in darkness for a moment before I switched to holding it open with my body. "In you go," I said. "And you're still allowed to cast magelight, you know?"
"Oh, right," she said, and closed her eyes to concentrate. A few flickers later, her hand lit up again, and she illuminated the secondary tunnel.
The door slammed shut behind us, and we were again left in the vast, empty tunnel. She turned to our right, towards the other tunnel. "What's that way?"
"Just a walled-off tunnel," I said, brightening my light so I could see to the tunnel's end. Whereas the tunnel to our left clearly ended with a hint of orange light coming from the reading hall, the other tunnel was completely dark, ending with nothing but black walls, same as the ones around us right now. "See?"
"Strange," she said, and turned towards the library, nodding along with me. When we reached the reading hall, she took a deep breath, and her eyes widened as she scanned the thing again. "It really never gets old."
"Nope," I said.
"And we get to read through whatever we want?" she said.
"Yeah, but you won't find much on electricity here," I said. "The Handbook has everything about that."
"Right, of course. They want me to master that before I dive any deeper, don't they?"
I nodded.
"Who are they, anyway?"
I shrugged. "I don't know. Does it matter?"
"Little bit, yeah. I want to know who's making me scream my guts out for help," she said.
"We'll find out," I said. "At least I hope we will. Christensen swears he doesn't know anything."
"Yeah, he would," she said. "I guess we'll just have to get on with it."
"Right. Yeah," I said, sitting down at one of the reading desks. "Go ahead."
"What about you?"
"I'll stay with you. What did you think I was going to do?"
"I don't know," she said. "Go study for your exams, I guess. Don't you have one on Tuesday?"
"I do, yeah," I grumbled. "Eh, fuck it. I'll be fine. I'm not in a good place anyway."
She dropped the Handbook on the desk and turned to me. "Oh my God, what happened?"
"Christensen being a bastard," I said. "Reflections on my life. Can we... not? I'd like to just get on with the magic, to be honest."
She dropped her head. "Of course." She opened the Handbook and started reading again, while I got on my feet, listening to the pages turn and the towers of books muffle my every step.
"Aren't you going to get to the reading?" she said when she noticed what I was doing.
"Nah," I said. "Can't do it until Monday, anyway," I said. "Long story."
"Long day," she said.
I groaned and sat down next to her, and re-told her the story of the past day, in as much detail as I could.
"I thought all knowledge was archived here," she said when I finished.
"Yeah, so did I," I said. "I hope you can see the problem."
"Huh," she said. "That's... odd."
"Yeah, it is, that's why I'm wondering whether Christensen's hiding something," I said.
"I mean, he's your professor, what do you expect?" she said.
"Yeah, fair point. Still, if I'm going to save the World, I need to know what's going on."
"Well, you'll need a partner in crime," she said, raising the Handbook again.
"Right, of course. Best get on with it." She returned to reading it, but instead of getting up again, I sat there, holding my breath. There were unanswered questions left from the tunnel. "So... Mark?"
"I don't want to talk about it," she said without even looking at me.
"In the tunnel," I said, and that piqued her attention as she turned towards me. "You said I'd left you just like Mark."
She closed her eyes, took a deep breath and pressed her lips into a line. "I thought we'd agreed not to talk about it."
"But---"
"Didn't we?"
"We did. Yeah. Sorry."
"Just don't do it again. I'll talk about it when I talk about it."
I nodded.
"Want to help me? I want to make a spark, but I don't think I can make enough voltage myself."
"Yeah, you can, just hold your hands closer," I said. "At least that's how I managed when I was starting out."
"Right, let me try, then..."
She held her hands close and closed her eyes. I could see her eyes move beneath their eyelids again, and she grimaced more and more the longer we waited for something to happen. After a while, I heard a pop, and she immediately yelped before going limp.
"Vicky?" I said. She didn't respond. "Vicky!"
She was unconscious, but when I took her pulse, it was there, completely normal and regular. When I looked at her hands, the flesh on her palms was seared, just like mine was when I first made an electric spark. Her eyes fluttered, and she opened them again, immediately turning towards me. "Fucking again," she said.
"Yeah," I said. "Seems like you just exhausted yourself with so much magic."
"Why can't I do it, Cat? What's stopping me?"
"Yeah, you can," I said. "You triggered the lift, for fuck's sake. Of course you can do it."
"Right, I can do that, but as soon as I cast one good spell, I exhaust myself and that's it. No more magic for the day."
"I know this is going to sound like a cliche, but keep practising," I said.
She rolled her eyes. "That's what you're going with?"
"Yeah, I am. I think I know what I'm talking about, or I wouldn't be able to do this." I found a line of sight to her handbag and levitated it to my own height. Her eyes widened when I did that, and I smiled back at her. "Keep practising."
"Not today," she said. "And I could use lunch."
"You know what? I could too. And remember --- not a word of this. To anyone."
"Not a word," she said, and I helped her on her feet again.
When we finally got in the elevator and started moving up, she pulled me in for another hug. "Thank you."
"What for?" I said, returning the hug.
"Patience."

Thank you all so much for reading. You're amazing.
After Victoria hung up on me, I sat on that couch, staring into the abyss, without so much as blinking. What did she want now? Did she learn everything she needed so quickly? She can't have. It took me days, and she had a more difficult time than I'd had.
As I kept staring into nothingness, the screen lit up again, this time with a message from Jessica. Are you okay? Please call me.
When I read the words, I felt a wave of tranquillity envelop me. I was a mess, but there was still someone who cared about me, not things that I could do or for which they could use me. I was her mess. Carried by the warmth, I stepped outside again, sheltered from the rain, and called her.
It didn't take her a single moment to answer. "FOR FUCK'S SAKE, CAT!" she shouted. "You had me worried sick, you!"
"Okay, okay, I'm sorry," I said. "Was a lon-"
"Long day, was it? Didn't even text me once. Don't you have reception in the library?"
"Listen, Jess," I said, trying to stay as calm as possible.
She sighed. "Yeah? I'm listening."
"You know I prefer to have my phone off when I'm studying, right?"
"Yeah. Helps you focus."
"So I don't text *while *I'm studying. I never have. You'd know this by now."
"I do know it," she said. She was quietening down, and the tone of her voice was mellowing. I was making sense, and she knew it. "I just wish you remembered me more often."
The last sentence hit me like a freight train. We both wanted the same thing --- to be important, to be desired. I wasn't giving her that. I was being a bad girlfriend. "Fuck," I said softly. "I'm so sorry, Jess."
"It's okay," she said.
"No, it's not. It's really not," I said, feeling a lump in my throat. "I'm really, really sorry."
"I just don't want to lose you," she said, dragging her vowels more than usual. I could hear the beginning of a cry.
Her cry, in turn, made the lump in my throat grow even faster, and I wanted nothing more than to go over to hers, hug her and tell her what she really meant to me, but a phone was all I had. It would have to do, just like so many times before. "It won't happen again."
She sniffed. "I'm not sure I believe you."
"Will you let me prove it?" I said, raising my tone, and with it, my eyebrows even though she couldn't see them. "Please?"
Another sniff followed, but after it, she fell silent. "Yes, Cat. I will. I do owe you my life, after all."
"Thank you," I said, breathing a sigh of relief. "See you tonight?"
"Yeah, of course," she said. "The usual place at eight?"
"I mean, apart from that. At mine?"
"We're going to yours after we're done with the girls, yeah," she said, and let out another loud sigh. "Cat, where are you going with this?"
"Come to mine for dinner, before we go out," I said. "Spend some time together, without alcohol. Just you, me, food and hot water."
"Right," she said. "I mean, I love working together, but I really shouldn't be commuting thrice instead of twice today. Really got lots of things to do, and so do you."
"I didn't mean to study. Or work," I said. "I want to be with you. The way we used to waste time."
As I said those words, I saw a brown figure split the unending grey of clouds and rain. Victoria. "Listen, I've got to go," I said. "Coming over?"
She puffed, but hummed soon after. I knew that hum. She was feeling vulnerable. "I'll be there at six."
"I miss you," I said.
"Oh, now you do?" she laughed. "Go, don't let me stall you."
I smiled and took a deep breath. Everything was okay, at least for the moment. "Bye," I hummed, and hung up.
Victoria approached me through the rain, and when she came closer, I noticed she wasn't carrying any kind of umbrella. She was soaking wet, but she didn't seem to mind it at all. "Hi, Cat," she said as she came under the shelter of the roof.
"Vicky, are you insane?" I said, looking at her. "No umbrella?"
"Why would I have one? It's more fun this way, isn't it?" she said, her tone bordering on singing. When she grinned from ear to ear, I couldn't help but smile and raise an eyebrow.
"You're having some crazy mood swings these days, aren't you?" I quipped. "Desperate yesterday, happy today, what's coming up tomorrow? I'm not sure I want to know."
She laughed and brushed her head against my shoulder. "You'll find out once we've all got a few drinks in us."
"You're really coming, aren't you?" I said. "How did Emma react when you texted her?"
"Oh, she fucking gave out at me," she said, her grin still unyielding. "She'll come around. Things heal, right? Add time, and things get better."
I scoffed. "Most of the time, yes. But since you're being secretive, I hope you understand we're all having a hard time trusting you."
Her grin faded. "Yeah, of course. Never mind that, let's go!"
"Down there?" I said, feigning surprise.
"Stop playing stupid," she said, and her smile returned. She dragged me by the hand, and we hailed the elevator once we reached its shaft.
While we waited for the cabin to appear, she turned to me and whispered in my ear. "I'd like to try to open it myself. Without you."
"Someone's confident," I whispered back. "Alright, go ahead."
The cabin reached the ground floor. When the doors opened, I almost expected one of the staff to be there to give out at us, but it was, thankfully, empty. We stepped in, and the doors closed behind us. Victoria stared at me, almost as if she was expecting something to happen.
"Go on, then," I said. "Open it yourself."
"I--- yeah, of course," she said. "The same way you did it?"
"You're not supposed to remember that, are you? Fuck," I said, but decided to leave her be. Surely the rules could be slightly bent in a time of crisis?
She smiled, and turned to the little screen showing the number. "Here goes nothing," she said, and placed a hand on the screen and another on the metal plating.
I raised my eyebrows, and she kept looking at her arms, apparently confused at what she'd just done. "So now I suppose I just---"she said and closed her eyes.
While I waited for her to figure it out, I wondered whether it was like this for every mentor. Whether it was always this dull while their student figured everything out. I looked at her, and she didn't seem to be in any sort of pain, but I could see her eyes move.
She suddenly grunted and pulled away from the panels, and the lift jerked before we started moving down. She'd done it. Once she collected herself, she opened her eyes and started laughing. "I did that," she said. "I actually did that." For a moment, I thought I could see a tear in her eye.
"What's next, then?" she said as we waited for our destination.
"You should remember, you've only been here yesterday," I said, smiling with her.
"Should I? Oh, right. Tunnel."
I nodded, and soon after, the doors opened. I didn't even bother with the suggestive lamp. She knew what to do. As soon as the darkness revealed itself, she lit her hands up, shining a path through the tunnel and onto its walls.
"God, this is so cool," she quipped as we walked through the tunnel. "How do you open that door at the end, though?"
"You said you wanted to do it yourself," I said. "Go ahead. Do it yourself."
She groaned, and I couldn't help but wonder how Christensen ever got himself through that door without me ever noticing. My first encounter with the library was a blur, but I remembered the distinct feeling of fear, and that Christensen was behind me, before suddenly being in the second tunnel. I didn't remember him passing through the door. I guessed I'd find out soon enough.
With small talk filling the time during the walk, we reached the big red door. "Okay, I guess I need to figure this one out, then," she said. "On my own."
"Yeah," I said. "Good luck. I'm not going anywhere."
I didn't know whether I was lying, but I remembered what she would experience now. Right about now, she'd start hearing the voice in her head. She had to go through it. She had to perform under pressure. The light in her hands dimmed, and I wondered whether she'd figured it out already.
She didn't make so much as a noise, and I became suspicious of it. The idea was to make her face the darkness to open the door, but she wasn't making so much as a noise, and I didn't hear the voice, either. Something wasn't right, and instead of standing in the darkness, I took the chance and gave myself light.
When I pointed my hand towards the end of the tunnel, I couldn't even see her. I could see the door, but it was blurred and fuzzy. When I put my hand out to try and reach her, I felt resistance to my motion. Not a hard wall, like the pathetic shields I was making, but something viscous. It felt a lot like putting my hand through honey. Of course there was a shield to make sure she was doing it herself.
At first, I was awed by how precisely the tunnel had been engineered to ward off the unworthy, but then I remembered who was on the other side of that shield. Victoria was in there, all alone, and she would be going through mental hell.
The shield suddenly failed, I felt my hand fall through, and I heard a scream. Victoria appeared, sitting on the floor, crying and screaming. I wasn't able to make out who she was crying for, but I ran towards her and crouched next to her. "Vicky. It's okay. I'm here."
"NO! GET AWAY!" she screamed. "I DON'T WANT TO DIE!"
"Vicky, it's me," I said, holding her shoulders.
"YOU LEFT ME! YOU LEFT ME JUST LIKE MARK DID! YOU UNGRATEFUL BITCH!" she screamed in my face. Mark? What did this have to do with her boyfriend?
"Vicky! Open your eyes," I snapped at her, putting her head in my hands. "I'm here now. Look at me."
She calmed slightly, but I needed a free hand to turn the light on. Holding her head was working, but I had to take that chance. She needed to see me. I moved both my hands away, and I could immediately hear her whimper before I held her hand with one of my own and lit up the other to give us light. "I'm here."
Her eyes were wide open, and she yelped at the sudden bright light. When I dimmed it, she looked at me, deep into my eyes. "You're here," she whimpered. "Why did you leave me?"
"There was a shield. I couldn't even see you," I said softly. "I'm so sorry, I didn't know that it was how it did that."
"How what did what?" she said, making me flinch and back away.
"How the tunnel made you feel pressure," I said.
"Wait, this happened on purpose?!" she said, raising her voice. "What kind of sick fucker makes people afraid on purpose?!"
"Apparently, it's to make you perform under pressure," I said. "Does it make sense?"
"No! No, it doesn't!"
I sighed. "I'm sorry. Come here."
"I--- I can't hug you right now. Forgive me."
"Might as well keep going, right? I'll open the door for you," I said.
"Not right now," she said. "Give me a moment."
I sat down next to her, shining a light at the tunnel we'd just come from. "Have your moment, then."
The silence we sat in made me hyper-aware of my own heartbeat for a moment, but she soon broke it. "I failed, Cat. I couldn't do what the design wanted of me."
"No, you didn't," I said. "You can always try again."
"I still failed. We're all meant to be able to do this, aren't we? All mages? How old are they when they first come here, anyway? What did Christensen tell you? Twelve?"
"Sixteen," I quipped. "Still doesn't mean anything."
"Yeah, it does," she whimpered. "I'm 24 and I couldn't do it myself. What does that say about me?"
"That it's never too late," I said. "Vicky. You went from barely being able to use light to triggering the elevator in a day. It took me almost a week to figure that out. No joke."
She heaved for a short while longer, but eventually calmed down as I held her hand with my own free hand. "Okay," she said with a long exhalation. "Let's go."
I nodded and helped her back on her feet, before turning to the door. "What I'm going to do is not how you're meant to open this door, just so you know."
"Alright, if you say so."
I pressed my free hand against the door frame. The lock inside it clunked and I pulled it open with my lit hand, shrouding us in darkness for a moment before I switched to holding it open with my body. "In you go," I said. "And you're still allowed to cast magelight, you know?"
"Oh, right," she said, and closed her eyes to concentrate. A few flickers later, her hand lit up again, and she illuminated the secondary tunnel.
The door slammed shut behind us, and we were again left in the vast, empty tunnel. She turned to our right, towards the other tunnel. "What's that way?"
"Just a walled-off tunnel," I said, brightening my light so I could see to the tunnel's end. Whereas the tunnel to our left clearly ended with a hint of orange light coming from the reading hall, the other tunnel was completely dark, ending with nothing but black walls, same as the ones around us right now. "See?"
"Strange," she said, and turned towards the library, nodding along with me. When we reached the reading hall, she took a deep breath, and her eyes widened as she scanned the thing again. "It really never gets old."
"Nope," I said.
"And we get to read through whatever we want?" she said.
"Yeah, but you won't find much on electricity here," I said. "The Handbook has everything about that."
"Right, of course. They want me to master that before I dive any deeper, don't they?"
I nodded.
"Who are they, anyway?"
I shrugged. "I don't know. Does it matter?"
"Little bit, yeah. I want to know who's making me scream my guts out for help," she said.
"We'll find out," I said. "At least I hope we will. Christensen swears he doesn't know anything."
"Yeah, he would," she said. "I guess we'll just have to get on with it."
"Right. Yeah," I said, sitting down at one of the reading desks. "Go ahead."
"What about you?"
"I'll stay with you. What did you think I was going to do?"
"I don't know," she said. "Go study for your exams, I guess. Don't you have one on Tuesday?"
"I do, yeah," I grumbled. "Eh, fuck it. I'll be fine. I'm not in a good place anyway."
She dropped the Handbook on the desk and turned to me. "Oh my God, what happened?"
"Christensen being a bastard," I said. "Reflections on my life. Can we... not? I'd like to just get on with the magic, to be honest."
She dropped her head. "Of course." She opened the Handbook and started reading again, while I got on my feet, listening to the pages turn and the towers of books muffle my every step.
"Aren't you going to get to the reading?" she said when she noticed what I was doing.
"Nah," I said. "Can't do it until Monday, anyway," I said. "Long story."
"Long day," she said.
I groaned and sat down next to her, and re-told her the story of the past day, in as much detail as I could.
"I thought all knowledge was archived here," she said when I finished.
"Yeah, so did I," I said. "I hope you can see the problem."
"Huh," she said. "That's... odd."
"Yeah, it is, that's why I'm wondering whether Christensen's hiding something," I said.
"I mean, he's your professor, what do you expect?" she said.
"Yeah, fair point. Still, if I'm going to save the World, I need to know what's going on."
"Well, you'll need a partner in crime," she said, raising the Handbook again.
"Right, of course. Best get on with it." She returned to reading it, but instead of getting up again, I sat there, holding my breath. There were unanswered questions left from the tunnel. "So... Mark?"
"I don't want to talk about it," she said without even looking at me.
"In the tunnel," I said, and that piqued her attention as she turned towards me. "You said I'd left you just like Mark."
She closed her eyes, took a deep breath and pressed her lips into a line. "I thought we'd agreed not to talk about it."
"But---"
"Didn't we?"
"We did. Yeah. Sorry."
"Just don't do it again. I'll talk about it when I talk about it."
I nodded.
"Want to help me? I want to make a spark, but I don't think I can make enough voltage myself."
"Yeah, you can, just hold your hands closer," I said. "At least that's how I managed when I was starting out."
"Right, let me try, then..."
She held her hands close and closed her eyes. I could see her eyes move beneath their eyelids again, and she grimaced more and more the longer we waited for something to happen. After a while, I heard a pop, and she immediately yelped before going limp.
"Vicky?" I said. She didn't respond. "Vicky!"
She was unconscious, but when I took her pulse, it was there, completely normal and regular. When I looked at her hands, the flesh on her palms was seared, just like mine was when I first made an electric spark. Her eyes fluttered, and she opened them again, immediately turning towards me. "Fucking again," she said.
"Yeah," I said. "Seems like you just exhausted yourself with so much magic."
"Why can't I do it, Cat? What's stopping me?"
"Yeah, you can," I said. "You triggered the lift, for fuck's sake. Of course you can do it."
"Right, I can do that, but as soon as I cast one good spell, I exhaust myself and that's it. No more magic for the day."
"I know this is going to sound like a cliche, but keep practising," I said.
She rolled her eyes. "That's what you're going with?"
"Yeah, I am. I think I know what I'm talking about, or I wouldn't be able to do this." I found a line of sight to her handbag and levitated it to my own height. Her eyes widened when I did that, and I smiled back at her. "Keep practising."
"Not today," she said. "And I could use lunch."
"You know what? I could too. And remember --- not a word of this. To anyone."
"Not a word," she said, and I helped her on her feet again.
When we finally got in the elevator and started moving up, she pulled me in for another hug. "Thank you."
"What for?" I said, returning the hug.
"Patience."
