2023.03.22 15:04 chainer9999 2023 32 Teams/32 Days: Cincinnati Bengals

Hub post
Contributors: chainer9999, TheReaver88
Division: AFC North
Record: 12-4 (1 no contest), AFC North Champions, Lost in AFC Title Game
Season Summary:
After a Cinderella run the previous season which ended just short of a truly miraculous ending, there were a lot of split opinions about whether the Bengals were “for real.” While there were people who believed that a young nucleus led by Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase and numerous talented but relatively unknown defenders would continue to grow and be even better in 2022-23, the majority opinion was that the Bengals were prime regression candidates and that they were not even the favorites for their own division.
The early part of the season appeared to validate the skeptics: the Bengals sputtered to an 0-2 start, and the offseason O-line improvements were not yet apparent. But Joe Burrow found his form, the line came together as a cohesive unit, and the offense adjusted to take what the defenses were giving them in the short passing game. After a humiliating Monday night loss in Cleveland, the team buckled down and ripped off 8 straight wins (with a tragic no contest in the middle) to roar past the Ravens and grab the division title for the second straight year. The Bengals entered the postseason with some serious question marks; two of their three prized OL signings went down with injuries, as did left tackle Jonah Williams. After squeezing by Baltimore and dominating Buffalo, Cincinnati fell just short against the Chiefs in the AFC Title Game by a familiar score of 23-20. The Bengals experienced several departures in free agency, but the coaching staff and quarterback will remain with the team in 2023 in search of the franchise’s first Super Bowl.

6. Concluding Remarks
This was an amazing season for the Bengals, despite major disappointment on either end of the schedule. The biggest takeaway was the statement that the Bengals are real; all those projections of a “step back” or the team being a fluke have faded into the past. The convincing win in Buffalo was among the strongest statements the franchise has ever made. The new reality of the NFL is that the Cincinnati Bengals are a serious contender until proven otherwise.
The team has taken free agency losses and will need to see how the roster looks going forward, but this team is still largely the same squad that has reached consecutive AFC title games, and it’s mostly behind a coaching staff and quarterback that are still leading the charge. As long as Joe Burrow is wearing stripes, Bengals fans will enter the season (and often the postseason) with an aura of confidence that has frankly never existed for this fanbase.
Cincinnati will enter 2023 as one of the 4 or 5 shortest odds to win Super Bowl LVIII, and at this point, we fans can dream of our first Lombardi Trophy without being accused of hitting the pipe. However, many monsters loom in the loaded AFC. Guide us, the good shepherd Burrow.

2023.03.22 14:29 thatguybruv Surrey in the 2023 County Championship

This applies for the first block in the champo of 6 rounds

The following players wont be available for the start of the season:
Will Jacks was one of surrey's most important players in the last season scoring [email protected] in the championship, striking at 77 and was also hugely important opening in the blast which got him an ipl deal and England debuts in all three formats, county fans will never forget his demolishing of simon harmer to save the match against Essex. He is injured and out of the ipl, unavailable.
Sam Curran has regained his ipl deal after a great winter for england and reinventing himself as a death bowler and strong hitter, he played most of the blast as well as 5 champo matches, scoring 454 runs @ 75 with a strike rate of 79 including his maiden century in senior cricket. He'll be missed as he goes off to india.
Reece Topley also has his first ipl deal, he only played 3 matches last season taking [email protected] but with a much greater career record its another hit to the depth. He'll be much more important in the blast where he'll be available.
Tom Curran is currently injured and also has left red ball cricket for the time being, got his maiden century at Northampton after working on his batting during his injury.

The following players didn't play a first class match in 2022 or since then, some will be available but unlikely to be selected:
Laurie Evans hasn't played any cricket recorded on cricinfo since the hundred and hasn't played first class in a few years now as he comes to the end of his career.
Jason Roy after being dropped from the england t20 side wasn't able to retain his form in that format but did score an incredible 145* (63) for quetta in the psl and has scored 2 odi centuries from 9 innings in the winter, his last first class match was in 2020 but without an ipl deal or much england selection he may return to first class cricket.
Chris Jordan's last first class match was in 2019 for sussex, I don't think first class is included in his surrey contract.
Sunil Narine is T20 only.
Matthew Dunn only managed to get into the heavily weakened one day side in 2021.
Nick KImber only featured in the one day cup and is yet to make his first class debut, though the bowling all rounder could this season.
Josh Blake is surrey's third choice keeper and is yet to make an appearance outside the one day cup, may do if Jamie Smith is called up to the england side or is injured.

The following players are available and hasn't played a cricinfo recorded match since last summer:
Connor Mckerr played three FC matches for surrey in 2022, finding it hard to nail down a spot there so went on loan to kent at the end of the season for game time, he took 8 wickets in those 5 matches.
Dan worral was a key part of surreys championship success since switching his allegiance to england and moving to south london, in 9 matches he took 39 wickets at 24 with an economy below 2. He'll be very important this season.
Ben Geddes played three first class matches in his second season of senior cricket, captaining the youthful one day side and scoring 176 runs @ 44 including his second FC century.
Jordan Clark played 11 games in the championship and was incredibly important though he is most remembered for his roses hattrick of williamson, bairstow and root. He scored 481 runs at 43 and took 30 wickets @ 35.
Rory Burns, the captain leader legend won his second championship as skipper averaging 40 with 3 hundreds and was one of just 3 players to play every game, the reliable top order alongside him of Amla and Patel. He scored the winnings runs of the championship.
Dan Moriarty appeared just once last season as a victim of Batty's part time spin approach, he was much more important in the blast and got a 100 gig, I imagine that's where his career is going.
James Taylor played the first three games of the season taking 4 wickets but got an injury, he hasn't played since and I'm unaware of his progress, he may still not be available.
Ryan Patel nailed down his spot in the surrey side playing all 14 games and averaged 35 opening the batting and his medium pace entertained some fans at the oval greatly. He also earned a spot in the county select xi to face the kiwis.
Nico Reifer made his first class debut against the sri lankan development xi scoring 68, he's from barbados and the cousin of the West indian international of the same name. I imagine he'll earn a few more appearances this season.
Nathan Barnwell also made his first class debut against the SLCDXI but I imagine he will struggle for appearances.
Tom Lawes' debut season in senior cricket was really impressive, playing 6 championship games taking 18 wickets at 22 and a valuable [email protected] runs will see him play quite a few surrey matches this season as he also made his blast and one day cup debuts.
Cameron Steel, Will Jacks' understudy bowled well when used in his 5 championship matches after signing for the club, taking [email protected] but his batting wasn't up to his usual standard with a high score of 48, he was born in the US so I wonder if they've tried to sign him.
Dom Sibley resigned from warwickshire, he played well there scoring [email protected] and upping his strike rate to a mighty 42, his return should really help the top order with Amla's retirement.
Amar Virdi's only first class appearances was for somerset on loan where he went wicketless, despite lions appearances and an incredible record he's unwanted mostly by surrey, having not made a t20 appearance in his career. I think he could likely move for more matches.

The following players are available for the first block and have been playing other matches recorded by cricinfo in the winter:
Ben Foakes played 3 test matches scoring 2 fifties, batting well and keeping superbly as usual, when england doesn't take him i imagine he'll be first choice for surrey in the summer after scoring [email protected] in the championship last summer in 9 appearances.
Jamie Smith, second choice keeper who played superbly in his 8 matches, scoring [email protected] including a 234* at bristol on a pitch ollie pope called "a bit flat". He played 4 lions matches in the winter, scoring a century in a first class match at galle, a 50 against the sri lankan presidents xi and some top keeping.
Ollie Pope, invincible at the oval scored [email protected] in his 8 championship matches striking at 66 with 2 run a ball centuries at the oval. He scored 108 in Rawlapindi and 60 in multan whilst stepping in behind the stumps for an ill Ben Foakes. He scored 115 across 4 innings in the test in new zealand and played 2 franchise matches for the first time in his career for the gulf giants scoring 18 runs in 2 innings.
Angus Atkinson was extremely important in the blast for surrey and in the championship bowled very well in the 4 matches he was included in taking 13 wickets @ 28 and will build on those this summer I'm sure. He also had his first franchise winter at 24 years old, playing 10 of the desert vipers 12 games, taking 9 wickets with an economy of 7.8 and was unused by islamabad united in the psl.
Kemar Roach will return for the first block after proving incredible in his 2 previous seasons at the oval with 25 wickets @ 26 in his seven games last season. He played 4 tests in the winter taking 9 wickets including a devastating fifer at centurion.
Sean Abott makes his return to surrey, at time of writing he's currently bowling at chennai, playing well in this series in his international return in the last year. Played well in all three formats domestically including 21 wickets @ 29 in the sheffield shield for new south wales.
Jamie overton, plagued by injury played 1 match in the winter in a lions match in abu dhabi. Last season he played 10 games with his performances earning him a test debut with 34 wickets @ 25 and 355 runs at 29.

Thats your lot

what do we do with it? submitted by bearkey-_-_-_ to u/bearkey-_-_-_ [link] [comments]

2023.03.22 10:34 shining_force_2 Ireland/Scotland/UK Lore

So I'm behind on content as I have a 6 week old daughter that rules over me now. The podcast has been great to put on at 3AM when she won't sleep, or 6AM when she won't sleep or heck why not 1AM when she won't sleep. But either way I'm watching it behind schedule and in chunks. With that in mind, I'm like 2/3 of the way through the St. Patrick's Day After Dark craic (that's Irish for fun and is pronounced Crack).
Anywho, there was a bunch of stuff I was hearing that wasn't really getting answered. I'm from the UK, but have Irish parents. I also work in the video games industry so I've moved a lot. I've actually lived in Scotland (Dundee) previously and spent 5 years living in Galway on the west coast of Ireland. I thought I'd take a bit of time to answer some of the questions that were asked and not properly answered during the ep, about these 3 places.
1 - Do Irish wear Kilts? Yes they do! However it's not 100% certain when/where it all started happening. Some say it was the 1900s and military related. Some say it's as far back as 1590. However they treat the tartan differently - having the colours related to the regions in Ireland, rather than the families/clans like they do in Scotland. Saying that there are some families with registered tartans. 2 - What's up with St. Patrick and the snakes? This response could be a long one. So I'll keep it short. Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England all have their own "patron saints". It's questionable whether any of them ever actually existed. St. Patrick however, is the most likely to have existed. He was a Christian Missionary that came to Ireland to spread the "good" word. At the time, Ireland was almost entirely Pagan/Druidic. St. Patrick was banished by the druids for attempting to convert people. He was banished to a small island cluster where he built his first monastery and began housing people that were homeless/shunned by local towns and villages. Eventually, the work he began ended Druidic religion in Ireland and the "snakes" in the story are an analogue for pagans. There's actually a few kinds of snakes that can be found in Ireland. One of my dogs was actually bitten by an Adder when I lived there! 3 - What's the link between Ireland and Scotland? Another long answer that I'll try to keep short. Actually this could be a very long answer. But Scotland as we know it today was essentially formed by two ethnic groups - the Gaels and the Picts. The picts inhabited what is now Scotland for the most part before the Gaels arrived. The Gaels had been coming over from Ireland as far back as 500AD. Gaels (Gaelic speakers - the Irish/Scottish language) were a society based on Clans. Some of those clans - one of whom was called The Scots - were aggressive. Due to their aggressive nature, they were avoided by other clans and eventually decided in the middle ages that they wanted to create their own society. So, they began taking land on the west coast of what is now Scotland. At the time, the Picts inhabited a lot of that area of the country, with some Germanic tribes on the east coast and some Norman (kinda English) settlements towards the south of what is now Scotland. The Gaels came over and slaughtered a lot of the Picts and their society, taking the land and settling new villages. They eventually took most of the country, combining some Picts and Normans into their society, but essentially driving most cultures out. So, essentially, the Irish and the Scottish are ancestors and share a common language. No one really talks about Pict culture any more, but they were quite fascinating. This is obviously an incredible simplification of hundreds/thousands of years of culture and societal change. But yeah, there's more to it than just hating the English. 4 - Who actually likes the English? No one. Not even the English like the English. I'm from the Midlands, who are hated by northerners and southerners, simply for being from another part of the country. Self loathing and sarcasm is at the core of a lot of English comedy. We "take the piss" out of ourselves and each other as a form of flattery. Heck, as a people, we keep voting the Tories in - that says as much as it needs to about self hating. 5 - Russell Brand and how to alienate yourself from the average human. Oh man. Where do we begin. I've never really liked him. He used to be one of the biggest names in British comedy. How far he's fallen. He was "cancelled" in 2008 after calling a guest live on radio (the Andrew Sachs, who played Manuel in Fawlty Towers) and leaving a series of terrible voicemails about Sach's granddaughter, who Brand briefly dated. It ended his career on the BBC and other channels wouldn't touch him. He then tried his hand at alternative shows and channels, but the damage was done. He was outcast. He was also a massive drug addict and spent a long time in rehab - coming out almost enlightened. He created a YouTube channel and started something called "The Trews" which was a play on The News crossed with Truth. All of this content was very much left leaning, but through the lens of "everyone should live a free and happy life". There was actually a (I thought brilliant at the time) show where he hosted Jordan Peterson and the conversation was really engaging. This was pre-Peterson meltdown mode before he went completely down the Nazi rabbit hole. Anyway, that kind of just died out as he went away from talking about Buddhism, freedom, meditation, essential oils, yoga and fairness - and more into the COVID style conspiracies. I think a lot of "lost" left wing types saw familiar arguments with things like vaccines. It's an easy jump to go from "I think we should all be allowed to do our own thing" to "you can't force a vaccine on me, you fascist". Given the proximity of that sort of content to right wing media and Brands rapidly declining popularity, it doesn't surprise me this is where he's ended up. He IS right wing now, but like others, he's been lead here without realising, but now he's dug his heels in because he's 100% ego and no common sense.
If Brand does come on the podcast, be ready for a rollercoaster of madness where he might even have a psychotic episode. Honestly. He's a mess now and neck-deep in the world of conspiracies.

What is Brinar plate ?

Other than the excellent evaluations of water smothered and tempered steels with degrees of hardness of around 400 or 500 HB, which achieve their wear restriction by building up the composite hardness, Chhajed Steel and Alloys supplies steel surveys that have a novel status among wear-safe steels. The explanation behind affiliation is the steel studying BRINAR® 400 Cr. The wear thought of this steel is made by its optimal compound thought. Despite the covered hardness of the steel a fine dispersal of hard chromium and molybdenum carbides that show against wear contribute towards a long affiliation life under impossible wear conditions.
A reason for the possible change in advantage life while using this emerge steel is the course that by honorableness of water covered and tempered steels the hardness is diminished towards the purpose of merging of the plate thickness by virtue of the decreasing chilling off speed, while by morals of the steel assessing BRINAR® 400 Cr the microstructure and hardness are uniform all through the plate thickness. Along these lines, uniform wear can happen being utilized.

UCLA #19 Western Washington Texas Utah
After some backlash about the previous predetermined-matchup format, NWC is now using a more traditional pool play and bracket format. There are still some quirks, as noted below:
  • UW and WWU won't play each other in Pool B. Instead, UW will play BYU, and WWU will play Victoria and BYU.
  • #9 BYU and #14 Victoria are each only playing Friday and Saturday games and won't be part of the bracket.
  • The top seeds in each pool will play BYU and Victoria: UBC plays BYU, while Carleton, Vermont, and Colorado play Victoria. If each of these teams also finishes atop their respective pools, this should provide some symmetry in number of games played, as the 2nd and 3rd finishers in each pool play a pre-quarter while the 1st finisher receives a bye to quarters.

2023.03.22 02:53 xdavidliu [TOMT][TV Show clip][2006] Stephen A. Smith Quite Frankly talks to White guy from Utah and also about MJ fouling out before Kobe gets 81

I can't remember if these were one clip or two separate clips, but here's how they go.
In one clip, a white guy in the audience says something like "I'm from Brooklyn, originally from Utah", and then asks some question, and SAS responds "first of all you're not from Brooklyn; you're from Utah".
(EDIT: found the Utah guy clip; definitely not the same episode. Still can't find the MJ foul clip though:)
In the second clip, SAS responds to a quote by MJ (not there) saying that he would have fouled out before letting Kobe get 81 points, and SAS comments that "first of all, you would not have fouled out because you're a great defender. Second of all the refs would've have called six fouls on you because you're Michael Jordan! I mean come on!"

2023.03.22 02:45 Briarrose1021 Row #54 Completed AND Another Completed Card!

Row #54 Completed AND Another Completed Card!
Welcome back for another completed row. You’re in luck, too, because completing this row also completes another card. As we get closer and closer to the end of the month, I will likely be posting fairly often, with my fingers crossed that I have the time to finish the remaining books I have planned.
For this post, as before, I will post the completed row with its reviews. I will then post the image of all the covers smushed up against each other for the full effect of the color, and then I will post my Bingo Card. I will also include links to the earlier row completion posts in case you want to revisit any of the previous rows and reviews.
For this row, which is a Row #3 on my Violet (Purple) Color Cover Card, I read Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky by Kwame Mbalia for the Name on the Title (Hard Mode) square, Witchlings by Claribel A. Ortega for the Author Uses Initials square, The Enchanter by Tobias Begley for the Published in 2022 (Hard Mode) square, Shuri by Nic Stone for the Urban Fantasy (Hard Mode) square, and Redemptor by Jordan Ifueko for the Set in Africa (Hard Mode) square.
Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky by Kwame Mbalia - 5/5 (MG)
Having already read Last Gate of the Emperor by this author - another amazing book, by the way - I knew that I would enjoy this book. I did not know that this book would make me feel ALL. THE. FEELS.
In yet another book that ignores the Greek and Roman pantheon of gods to instead focus on gods from African history, Mbalia hits another home run. Tristan is a seventh-grade student whose best friend recently died in a bus accident, and Tristan blames himself for Eddie's death. As a result, Tristan has had a tough time healing from the accident; his parents send him from Chicago to Alabama, to live with his grandparents and to, hopefully, heal.
Making the trip with him is Eddie's journal that Eddie's mother had given to Tristan after the funeral. The journal that Tristan hasn't been able to look at, much less open, since his friend's death. The journal that now has a strange symbol on the cover and glows. Yeah. The journal glows. The journal that, now that Tristan is in Alabama, is currently being stolen by some little doll thing. Wait. What?!?
Tristan's desire to not lost the journal that is his last remaining connection to his best friend, Tristan ends up traveling to another world - a world where John Henry, Gum Baby, and Brer Rabbit are real, and where the African trickster god Anansi plays tricks (shocking, I know) and causes problems. I loved reading another book that had gods and folklore heroes from other cultures, and I really loved how this book combined figures that I learned about growing up in the South (John Henry, Brer Rabbit) and new ones that I hadn't. The latter, of course, led to a Google black hole that may or may not have taken up the better part of an afternoon... but I digress.
This book touched on lots of different issues and did not shy away from tackling the tough ones. Eddie's death, and Tristan's blaming himself for it, was one that kept coming up as Tristan progressed through the story, and the way that Mbalia showed Tristan dealing with it was beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time. I may or may not have cried a few times. But don't tell anyone.
Now, after having sung some of the praises of this book, I will admit to something that I'm not proud of. I have had this book on my TBR list for a while because the book cover is awesome. But I was hesitant to read it because I was unsure about how the story was going to incorporate the figures of John Henry and Brer Rabbit, and I was worried that it would end up being simplistic. It actually took me reading Last Gate of the Emperor and experiencing Mbalia's writing before I was willing to try out Tristan Strong. I am glad I did, and I wish I hadn't been as hesitant to read it in the beginning. This book is absolutely wonderful, and the incorporation of the folk heroes, as well as the West African gods, is done beautifully. I now have the rest of this series on my TBR list.
For this book, I chose to listen to the audiobook. I figured that I would do so as a throwback to the folk heroes included in the book, whose tales were passed down as part of oral history for so long. The narrator, Amir Abdullah, did a fabulous job. His performance enhanced the experience so much - I'm partially blaming him for the tears that may or may not have fallen, though most of that fault lies with Mbalia - and his voice was so enthralling that I found it very difficult to hit the pause button when I needed to stop listening (curse you, sleep! why must you interrupt all of my good books?!?). Given the choice between reading and listening to the other books in this series, I will choose listening.
So, after reading through that entire review, if you're still unsure about whether or not to read or listen to this book, let me ask you these questions: Do you like main characters who experience positive character growth in their stories? Do you like magic? Do you like heroes? Do you like quirky sidekicks (please don't tell Gum Baby I called her quirky...or a sidekick)? Do you like characters from diverse backgrounds that aren't just cardboard cutouts of stereotypes? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you'll probably enjoy this book and should read it. If you didn't answer yes to any of the questions, I'm a little concerned that you don't like magic, but I respect that people have different interests. I still think you should give the book a try (I mean, you wouldn't be looking at the reviews if you weren't at least a little bit interested, right?).
Witchlings by Claribel A. Ortega - 5/5 (MG)
Seven is looking forward to the upcoming ceremony in which she will find out what coven she will be in. Having done the research, she knows that best friends have always ended up in the same coven, and she's hoping that she and her best friend Poppy will both end up in the Hyacinth coven.
What Seven does not expect is that she will end up being one of the 3 Spares, witchlings who aren't selected for a coven. Then, to make matters worse, when the magic circle that is supposed to seal their coven of three Spares doesn't close, Seven faces the prospect of being a Forever Witchling and losing access to powerful magic forever. In an attempt to avoid that fate, Seven does the only thing she can do: she invokes the impossible task. If the three witchlings can succeed and complete the impossible task, then their coven will be sealed. If they can't? Well, they'll be turned into toads. Forever.
This was a really fun book to read. I love the concept of the character names being prophecies, and I also enjoyed the way the friendship between the three spares developed as they went about trying to complete their task. The author did a wonderful job with the mystery, and I truly did not expect what actually happened, nor suspect who the actual culprit was. I was a little suspicious about the lack of information surrounding the previous witchlings who had attempted an impossible task, and figured that something was going on there. While I had figured out the what, I did not suspect the who.
This was definitely a great read, and I encourage you to read it as well. If you like witches, magic, mysteries, and friendship, then you will enjoy this book. Now I am looking forward to reading Ghost Squad by the same author.
The Enchanter by Tobias Begley - 5/5
The adopted human son of an elvish tailor, Evander "Evan" was looking forward to a nice life as a tailor, taking over his father's shop once he passes. That was his plan, that is, until he suddenly discovers he has a magical aura. Now, his plan includes attending Yesgol Academy of Magic and avoiding failing out so he doesn't end up conscripted into the military.
Though Evan adjusts well to this change in his life plans, he quickly finds himself involved in a secret society trying to bring reform to the current magic system, dealing with horrific beings summoned from another land that are incredibly dangerous, or catching the eye and interest of a noble-born young man who has been excommunicated from his family.
With all of that going on, Evan has his work cut out for him.
First, I have read several academy novels, and I have found that my interest level tends to vary based on how unique the story is. I can safely say that, while there are some similarities between this book and the Mage Errant series - especially in the personalities of the protagonists - there are enough differences that this book stands out, much like the Mage Errant series. This is only the first book in the series, and I am glad the author is continuing the series because I definitely want to know what happens to Evan and Osheen.
As opposed to many of the romantic relationships that we tend to see in these types of novels, the romance here was very much a slow-burn, with the romance developing throughout the book as the two characters spend time together. As a result, it felt much more real to me. I also liked the amount of time the author devoted to the interpersonal relationships among all the characters; it really helped bring the other characters to life. At the same time, the author spends a great deal of time on worldbuilding, but instead of feeling like a series of infodumps that just overwhelm the reader, the information was provided at times that made it relevant to the reader.
The only real complaint that I have is with the way part of the plot was resolved at the end. For an aspect that was used to induce quite a bit of tension throughout the novel, it felt a bit too easy for me. That said, there are still plenty of ways that could come back up in a later book, and there is still the overarching plot of magic reform to continue in later books to deal with. At the same time, the way the plot was resolved wasn't unrealistic; it was just... it's almost like it was too easy, and now I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. Who knows? Maybe it will in the next book. Aside from that, though, I absolutely loved this book, and I cannot wait for the next book.
Also, I had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook, which was narrated by Emily Ellet. At first, it was a little odd listening to a female narrator for a male protagonist. That didn't last long though. Ellet did a wonderful job with the narration, and I absolutely loved her performance of the different characters and the voices she used to bring them to life. I do hope that she will narrate any sequels published so I can listen to her narrate those as well.
Shuri by Nic Stone - 5/5 (YA)
If you are not familiar with Princess Shuri, then you definitely need to change that. Ever since seeing her portrayed in the Black Panther movie, she has become my favorite princess, and this book is a wonderful story highlighting her.
The traditional Wakandan Challenge Day - a day in which anyone can challenge King T'Challa for the throne by attempting to beat him in hand-to-hand combat - is fast approaching and T'Challa has asked Shuri to design him a new Black Panther suit that is stretchier and doesn't ride up. However, every time Shuri attempts to infuse some of the heart-shaped herb plants that provide the Black Panther with his (or her) super-human abilities, the process fails.
With her stores of the herb running low, she goes to Sacred Field to procure some more, only to find out that the plants are dying. The process is slow, but it is estimated that all of the plants will die out on Challenge Day. And though the person serving as Black Panther only has to ingest the plant once in order to have its effects forever, if T'Challa should happen to be defeated on Challenge Day, there is a very large risk of no plants surviving for the new Black Panther; no plants means no super-human abilities, which means the new Black Panther would just be a regular guy in a cool-looking suit.
Shuri cannot let that happen, though - the plants dying, not her brother losing since she has no control over her brother's success - so she immediately begins investigating what is killing the plants and how to reverse the process. Accompanying her in her investigation is her (maybe best) friend K'Marah, who is also in training to become a Dora Milaje. Of course, her investigation progress is being seriously hindered by her mother, the Queen, who keeps insisting that Shuri take guards with her everywhere she goes - even inside the palace! Will Shuri be able to give the guards the slip so she can complete her investigations? And what about the rumors that T'Challa is going to reveal Wakanda's presence to the world?
This was a great story starring Shuri and I can't wait to read the sequel. If you like smart and strong female protagonists who insist on saving their country even when no one else will believe her that the country is in danger, then you'll enjoy this book, too. So you should read it. That is all.
Redemptor by Jordan Ifueko - 5/5 (YA)
For only the second time in the history of Aritsar, there is an Empress on the throne. But Tarisai is not alone. Sharing the throne with her is Diao, Emperor of Aritsar. Two Raybearers. One male and one female, as had been originally intended. But all is not well.
For Tarisai has made a promise: She will anoint her own council from the rulers of the various lands of Aritsar within the next two years, at which time she will serve as the final Redemptor of the land. If she fails, the world will fall to war. But how is Tarisai supposed to convince the leaders to love her?
To make things worse, she is being haunted by child spirits, dealing with a growing rebellion, avoiding assassination attempts, and trying to figure out how to rule well.
This story picks up shortly after the end of the Raybearer and expands on the story in a beautiful way. Rather than Tarisai supporting Daio while fighting against her own curse, she is growing into her own person and as a ruler. But that growth is not easy, and it requires her to come to terms with her own past.
I think I enjoyed this book even more than Raybearer. While Ifueko doesn’t skimp on the development of the characters throughout, this book is really about Tarisai’s growth, both as a person and as an Empress. We see her highs, her lows, her struggles, her loves, her desires, and her expectations, all while she tries to fulfill the promises she has made. The character growth she makes is slow in places, and at times I wanted to shake her for the choices she was making, but she does get there in the end. Of course, she doesn’t get there alone, and there are lots of interactions with other characters, some serious and others frivolous, which serve to provide a wider picture of the world and its systems while also supporting the story of Tarisai’s growth.
For those of you who have read Raybearer and enjoyed it, you will most likely enjoy this book. If you haven’t read Raybearer yet, you really should read it. Jordan Ifueko weaves a beautiful story of love, belonging, survival, family, oppression, politics, and systemic issues in these two books that is absolutely fantastic.
As with the Raybearer, I listened to the audiobook of Redemptor, which was narrated by Joniece Abbott-Pratt. She does a fantastic job, and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite female narrators. I definitely recommend listening to her narration. She has a cadence that is absolutely fantastic for this duology, and I greatly enjoyed her performances of the various chants and calls-and-responses.
And now comes the fun part. First, the smushed together card:
If there are any rows with books that interest you, and you want to visit or revisit the reviews on that row, the links are below:
Row #1
Row #2
Row #4
Row #5 (Row #21 in the post)
And, here is the final Bingo Card. As a reminder, the stars on this card are different from the star ratings that I gave each book. The star ratings on this card are related to how likely I was to read the book before the Book Bingo started. 1 star means I was going to read the book whether it fit a square or not, so YAY, it fit a square! 2 stars mean that the book was on my TBR list and would have most likely been read sometime this year even without the bingo cards. 3 Stars means the book was on my TBR list, but likely 2-3 years out (My TBR list is, at the moment, about 4 years long given my current reading speed of 450-550 books/year. No, I don't have a problem. Why do you ask?). 4 stars means that I found the book while searching for books to fill squares, but I most likely would have read it or at least put it on my TBR list had I discovered the book in a different way. 5 stars mean that I found and read the book specifically because it fits a bingo square.
If you have reached this point of the post, thank you for your time and attention. With the completion of this row, I have finished 294 of the 300 books. All of the remaining 6 books are on their own rows, and of the remaining 5 remaining cards, 1 of them has 2 open squares and 4 have only 1 open square. Here’s hoping I have enough time to get them all read before the end of the month!
Until next time, Happy Reading!

2023.03.22 02:11 autotldr The Real Reason South Koreans Aren’t Having Babies

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 70%. (I'm a bot)
"I try to have faith in guys and not to be like, 'Kill all men,'" she says.
Their movement-possibly tens of thousands strong, though it's impossible to say for sure-is called "4B," or "The 4 No's." Adherents say no to dating, no to sex with men, no to marriage, and no to childbirth.
By one estimate, more than a third of Korean men and a quarter of Korean women who are now in their mid-to-late 30s will never marry.
In 1960, Korean women had, on average, six children.
In 2022, the average Korean woman could expect to have just 0.78 children in her lifetime.
If this downward drift continues, it will not be long before one out of every two women in the capital never becomes a parent.

2023.03.22 00:33 itsdestroyerofaliens When species collide

Subject: Commander Jack Garnet
Vessel: RMV Cambyses
Date: 13th June 3544 (Earth date)

We had been ordered out of our patrol sector near the Gunides system to come escort the REV Ancestral, a scientific vessel headed for the Tulia system, near the center of the galaxy. After the independence wars of the 30th century, every Republican Exploratory Vessel (REV) exiting Republican space was to be escorted by no less than 2 Republican Military Vessels (RMV) in order to defend it from pirate attacks or other threats.
This was the farthest any Republican vessel had ever gone from Earth, and this time scientists and explorers were very confident that they were going to find sentient life. This is why the RMV Hamilcar, an Apex-class battlecruiser was on call if needed.
“Sir, we’ve just received confirmation from the Office for Space Exploration” - said Johnson, the Comms Officer.
“Copy that, alert the Faramond and the Ancestral. We’re go for jump.”
Finally, after two weeks of waiting for bureaucracy, we were ready. In order to secure the safety of the Ancestral, the RMV Faramond would jump first, secure the jump gate created by our Halcyon drive, and give us the ‘go for jump’ signal. Then, we would jump in with the Ancestral.
“Isaac, plot the subspace course and start charging the Halcyon drive”
“Right away, Commander”
Isaac was our in-ship AI. He was developed to enhance the efficiency of combat vessels and to protect the Republican navy from any type of cybernetic attack.
“Course plotted. Once we jump the estimated travel time is 12 minutes 27 seconds. We’ll be traveling at the equivalent speed of 152 400 c.”
“Thank you, Isaac. Johnson, inform the Faramond that we’re ready and awaiting their jump”
“Yes, sir”
“Check shields, power levels, propulsion, lower jump blinds and put the Halcyon drive sensor readings on the main screen”
“Shields are go”
“Reactor is nominal, go”
“Propulsion is stable, go”
“Jump blinds are set, sir”
“Very good, gentlemen. Now we just wait for the Faramond to jump”
Right as that last word left my mouth, a blinding flash of white light flooded the room. The Faramond had jumped. Now we had to wait for the go for jump signal.
I decided to check again the Halcyon drive sensor readings, and as I was finishing Johnson said:
“Sir, the Faramond has arrived in system. Their scanners indicate no immediate threats. We’re go for jump”
“Okay. Isaac, get the Halcyon drive in sync with the Ancestral’s. Once stable begin the countdown for jump”
“Drives linked and stable, Commander. Initiating countdown:”
5 …
4 …
3 …
2 …
1 …
At first nothing happened. Then, the characteristic white flash of the subspace portal opening blinded us for a couple of seconds, until we were deep into the unknowns of the universe. This is the most beautiful part of space, in my opinion. When you’re on a subspace tunnel, space bends and folds around you, allowing you to see the most beautiful sight I could’ve ever imagined. Countless galaxies in sight, a million colors and shapes, all before my eyes.
But this dream I was witnessing faded when I got back to my duties:
“Commander, we’re exiting subspace” - Isaac said
“Check the status of the Ancestral and our position relative to the flight plan. Inform me of any unwanted deviations exceeding 0.1%”
“Will do, sir”
Subspace travel time was a weird thing to experience. Approximately 13 minutes had passed but it seemed like mere seconds. It was a shame that the wonders of subspace were so ephemeral.
Then, we experienced the familiar thump of exiting the portal:
“Check systems and get in contact with the Faramond. Advise Ancestral to stay close at all times and have shields up, just in case”
“Yes, sir” - responded Johnson
Suddenly, my HUD lit up and a red ball was placed on the other side of the closest planet to us, Tulia - E. Unidentified contact, designated Unidentified Vessel - 1 (UV-1):
“Johnson, inform Faramond to form up in defensive formation Theta, and order Ancestral to jump back to safety. Now!”
“Ancestral is experiencing problems with its Halcyon drive sir, they’re not gonna be able to jump!” - responded Johnson
“Alright, order them to stay behind us and send a distress signal to Gunides station!”
“Yes, sir!”
“Commander, UV-1 has weapons on board! Sensors suggest primitive MAC’s, type 2 photon torpedoes, plasma point defense turrets and class 3 energy shields” - informed Isaac
“Shit! Johnson, Hail UV-1 and order them to power down their weapons, else they will be fired upon”
“Yes, sir!” - answered Johnson
What the hell is this!? A frigate - sized vessel with class 3 energy shields? Those are a century old! Even our asteroid defense system could penetrate them if close enough. Was this a rogue separatist faction that somehow went unnoticed? Or maybe first contact? We hadn’t come across any complex life in the Orion arm, let alone a spacefaring species!
“Commander! Two Euclidean superluminal exit pulses detected on the other side of the system! Designating UV-2 and UV-3” - informed Isaac.
What!? Euclidean superluminal travel!? That was millennia old! Humanity stopped using superluminal travel after an uncontrolled Hyperflux drive meltdown caused a Leviathan-class dreadnought to disappear, along with everything within a 100 light-minute radius in 2381. It was deemed too dangerous and was swapped with the safer, albeit much more expensive Halcyon drives.
“Sir, incoming transmission from UV-1!” - said Johnson
“Isaac, search for malware on the file and show it to us when safe”
“Yes, Commander.” - answered Isaac - “Sir, this is all binary code with some primitive, civilian-level malware. Code filtered and ready to upload. Uploading…
=========BEGIN MESSAGE========
=========END MESSAGE==========
“Johnson, relay this message to the Faramond and to the Gunides station ASAP! We don’t know what we are dealing with here.”
“Yes, sir!” - Johnson answered - “Also, sir the RMV Hamilcar answered the distress call, connecting the live video feed now”
A few moments later the wall directly behind me lit up with the image of Captain Jordan Petrov:
“I understand you have sent a distress signal, Commander Garnet”
“Yes sir, we jumped to the Tulia system on an escort mission with the REV Ancestral, and we encountered an unidentified contact. As our primary mission is to protect the Ancestral, we decided it would be best to ask for help as its Halcyon drive is damaged”
“Is that unidentified vessel hostile? Is it armed? How many are there?”
“Not hostile yet. Yes, it is armed with primitive weaponry. I’ll have our shipboard AI send you the details and specs of their weapons. As far as the number of unidentified contacts there are 3. Two came out of Euclidean superluminal travel once we established contact with UV-1”
“Euclidean superluminal travel!? Must be a rogue, far obsolete rebel group from the independence wars era”
“Yes, that’s what we thought, but then it hailed us with a message mentioning a ‘Federation’, so we think this could possibly be first contact”
“Let’s hope it doesn’t go south, shall we? I’m jumping now, be there in 8 minutes. Comms out”
“Comms out”
As the wall dimmed, I started to think what first contact might look like if we shot first. Not good.
“Okay people, I’ve just spoken with the captain of an Apex-Class battlecruiser that’s coming to our aid. We’re going to sit still until they arrive”
A few minutes later, a white flash signaled the arrival of the Hamilcar. As soon as it left subspace the lights in the bridge turned red, and a blinking yellow light was displayed on the Tac-Map, indicating an incoming projectile.
“Raise shields to 100%! Arm the MAC’s and obtain an updated firing solution!”
As the round hit, we realized that the shields were almost intact, at 96% integrity. When I was about to give the order to fire on the enemy ship, the Faramond had already shot its MAC towards UV-1. The round hit the engine section in the center, tearing it off the ship and leaving it without power.
Immediately after this, the Hamilcar sent a message to UV-2 and UV-3, which Isaac displayed on the center screen:
=========BEGIN MESSAGE========
This is the RMV Hamilcar. You are ordered to power down your systems and shut off your engines. You have fired without cause toward a Republic ship. If you don’t comply within a 5 minute window you will be fired upon and destroyed. This is your only warning.
==========END MESSAGE=========
“Commander, UV-2 and UV-3 are powering down their systems and lowering their shields! They’re complying” - said Isaac
“Good. Advise the Hamilcar to load superluminal rounds into their primary MAC, in case we need to shoot across the system”
“Right away, Commander”
Moments later, we noticed boarding craft and fighter drones exit the Hamilcar’s hangars and head towards UV-1. They were gonna board it.

Author’s note: This is my first post on HFY, so any criticism/ grammar correction is welcome! I intend to continue this into a series.
Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed :)
