Keep in mind that, IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REGISTERED TO VOTE-BY-MAIL, AND YOU WANT TO VOTE IN-PERSON ABSENTEE, YOU WILL NEED TO CANCEL YOUR BALLOT REQUEST BEFORE GOING TO VOTE IN-PERSON. Contact your your jurisdiction's election authority to cancel your ballot if you want to vote in-person.
There is only one location for in-person voting during at this point (generally speaking it is your Clerk/Election Commissioner's office during business hours), but, starting in October (start dates vary by jurisdiction), there will be expanded early voting in many jurisdictions (smaller counties may only have one location), and early voting available on weekends (both Saturdays and Sundays).

IF YOU ARE VOTING-BY-MAIL
If you have registered to vote-by-mail, once you have received your ballot, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, fill it out properly, and then DROP IT OFF AT A DROP-BOX (if your jurisdiction has one), or, if your jurisdiction doesn't have one, you should still hand-deliver your ballot to your jurisdiction's Election Authority in order to 100% guarantee that it will arrive on time. Ballots need to be returned by 7:00pm on Election Day, though try to get your ballot in as soon as possible.
https://www.elections.il.gov/ElectionOperations/ElectionAuthorities.aspx?MID=cQHxtxVEmuo%3d&T=637365383065018990 [DROP-BOX]
Returning your ballot is fairly straightforward. Either put it in a drop-box or drop it off at your Election Authority's office. Most drop-boxes are exterior, 24/7 drop-boxes, some are interior, time-limited drop-boxes.
If your ballot has been rejected due to a signature mismatch, there is a cure process available, that allows you to correct your signature. It is available up to two weeks after Election Day (expires Tuesday, November 17).
https://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/vopp-table-15-states-that-permit-voters-to-correct-signature-discrepancies.aspx
If you are confined to your home, you may have somebody else drop off or hand-deliver your ballot for you. If you are hand-delivering somebody else's ballot, there is what is called an "Affidavit of Hand-Delivery" included with each ballot, that you will need to sign before dropping it off. AS A GENERAL RULE, DO NOT GIVE YOUR BALLOT TO ANYBODY THAT YOU DO NOT FULLY TRUST.

Any idea when are the IL ASC centers opening to public? The USCIS website provided a date for norridge and Naperville center but no information on Chicago or Waukegan centers. Also when are the rescheduled biometric appointment letter being sent out?

2020.05.05 06:42 Stegotetrabelodon Is anyone else concerned about their Papa John’s Pizza store closing? Or having trouble hiring new employees? My store has had 5 of its employees quit since this pandemic began. We have not been able to find any replacements yet. I think restaurants are closing because of employees quitting.

There were 2,544 Papa John’s Pizza store locations in the US as of 2019 according to statista.com.

[REQ] $400 (#Naperville, IL USA) $500 [6/1/18] (PayPal, Square)

Post contents

Hello. I am requesting this amount today because I need a little help to get myself and my family back on our feet. I've been trying to get this loan for the past week. The last potential lender took my info and stopped messaging me.
My bank account is overdrawn $260 and they have sent me several letters already that if I do not pay it asap, my account will canceled and I will be blocked from being able to open a bank with any other financial institution.
We also haven't had the money to afford groceries for the family so I would use part of the loan for that.
I use my car for my main job and it needs a few repairs thats preventing me from work. (Wheel alignment, AC compressor)
All of this is really stressing me out as well as my parents. This loan would help me get back on my feet and get ahead for once.
I set the repayment date for the 1st. I can/will make a payment every friday as well.
I am willing to use whatever payment method you prefer. I have PayPal and Square cash app.
Thank you

2018.08.28 14:23 unsung_pleb Green Thumb Industries: a closer look

Green Thumb Industries
The purpose of this document is to find value within GTBIF by looking at where GTI operates, how they operate and identify any catalysts that might launch this little giant into orbit. Lets begin...
Current standings
· Vertically integrated
· Controls and operates 100% of the production supply chain
· Does not strive to be long-term cannabis farmers
· Anticipates that specialization and consolidation along the supply chain will force out high-cost providers
· Develops, manufactures and distributes a portfolio of branded cannabis products including brands rythm , and Dogwalkers, among others, to its retail partners, some of which GTI owns as a chain of retail stores called RISE
· Placement of its branded cannabis products in 97 out of 97 open and operating stores in the Corporation’s markets currently selling wholesale (Illinois and Maryland)
· GTI owns and operates a 50-store national chain of retail stores called RISE Dispensaries with mature revenue
· 13 stores open and operating and with 20+ open stores expected by the end of calendar year 2018
· Focuses on limited licensed markets where competition is more limited than other markets. (less competition means more profit to be captured)
· Product categories including: flower, concentrates for dabbing and for vaporizing (including disposable and pre-filled cartridges), topicals (bath and beauty products), and edibles (confection, beverages, snacks)
· GTI is driving down cost of goods by expanding capacity in its most mature facility and currently they are under construction and building additional indoor cultivation space
Let's jump right into the battlegrounds and take a closer look..
Illinois
· Population of 13M
· Very limited in license
· IL (20 wholesale) / GTI (2 wholesale)
· IL (60 retail) / GTI (4 retail)
· Owns and controls two of the 20 (2/20) cultivation/processing licenses issued as well as four of the 60 (4/60) retail dispensary licenses issued to service the entire state of over 12 million residents
· Retail market size for 2017 was over US$85 million, representing an over 140% year over-year increase. In the first three calendar months of 2018, recorded state-wide sales are already over 1/3 of the total market size for all of 2017
· In Illinois, GTI was the first to sell cannabis to retail consumers on the first day of the program in November 2015
· IL was the largest contributor of GTI's revenue for 2017, will be a large contributor in 2018 as well but should reduce in its share of revenue due to business expansions in other areas
· Adult recreational use on horizon
· Chronic pain use on horizon
· J.B. Pritzker running for Governor and is using marijuana legalization as a means to get votes. My intuition tells me this.. he will in some way have something to do with GTI in the future, but this is only a guess and a hunch as he is a philanthropist, venture capitalist and entrepreneur as well as a politician obviously
· CUMCPPA or Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, gives people diagnosed with medical conditions access to medicinal marijuana. This became effective Jan 1 2014 and extends through Jul 1 2020 and there are 35 qualifying conditions part of this program such as epilepsy, brain injuries and PTSD

This concludes the small portion of DD of GTI / GTBIF. I feel that as more information came to light and the more I learned about management and their worries/solutions to those worries, the more confident I felt about my investment.
I do hope that the financials that will be released later today will reflect what I see in this company - solid fundementals and management that appears to be doing a very solid job just based on reading some of the strategies they have in place.
Please keep in mind that a lot of my DD herein does contain some month old information so there might be dispensaries already in operation today that I might have stated are still to be open but have actually been in operation for a bit of time.

2018.06.11 18:39 meganwal A Very Long Recap - May 19, 2018

First off, PHOTOS! It was SO hard to pick out our favorites. We got back almost 1000 pictures and liked every. single. one.
There will be more photos scattered throughout the recap also.
Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018
Location: Berrien Springs, MI - it was a semi-destination wedding in that we were the closest being about 2 hours away
Budget: Started at $20,000, but we were never really strict about it. We ended up spending around $28,000 for everything
Guests: Invited: 149, RSVP yes: 89, Actually attended: 82
Length of Engagement: 15 months
About Us: Late 20s and mid 30s with good jobs, living in Chicago, home owners, no kids, no debt
PLANNING
We had a very DIY wedding. We probably didn't have to with our budget, but I loved being able to put personal touches on everything that we did. I made 99% of our decorations, baked my own wedding cake, did my own hair and makeup, wrote the ceremony, taught myself calligraphy, did all the spotify playlists, and probably a lot more that I'm forgetting. Thankfully I have an office job that's super slow in the winter, so I basically got paid to plan my wedding for the last few months! Both my husband and I are very type A planners (we had a 20+ page excel spreadsheet). I heard from a lot of our vendors that we were the most organized couple that they had ever seen (!!). Because of this, I feel like we had a very, very smooth planning process... Until about 2 weeks before the wedding. But more on that later. Throughout all of our planning, we had always known the few things that we REALLY cared about, and everything else just seemed to fall into place.
VENDORS
WELCOME PARTY Since we were having a semi-destination wedding (My family is in Tennessee, and his family all came from the other side of the state), we decided to do a welcome party to kick off the weekend at our favorite local winery. It was so much fun!! We had around 50 people attend. We used our caterer for the wedding and they made flat bread pizzas and salad, and the winery gave us a cheese plate and a veggie tray they had leftover from an event the night before. We ended up buying twice as much wine as we had originally planned because we like to party, but it was totally worth it. Total cost: $1,250.
THE MORNING OF
My husband and I slept in the same room the night before the wedding. We slept in a little bit, and had my MOH, my mom and MIL, my new SIL, and my brother's girlfriend meet at the hotel that we were staying at to do our own makeup and watch the Royal Wedding. I had previously done a makeup trial that went hilariously wrong (see my post history for awful pics) so we got rid of the makeup artist and decided to do everything ourselves. We ordered room service and my husband had mimosas sent up to the room (so sweet!). We packed everything in the car and headed to the venue, which was about 25 mins away. When we got there, most of our vendors had arrived early and everything was starting to be set up. I was so overwhelmed by how beautiful everything was and it seriously made me cry. My husband and I are never the center of attention, and having people working to make our day perfect was unlike anything we've ever experienced before. We kept telling each other the entire day, "All these people are here because they love us. That's insane."
FIRST LOOK
I would 100000% recommend doing a first look. My husband always said not to get mad at him if he didn't react, because he's just not that kind of person, but he FLIPPED when he saw me in the dress. It was so nice to get that moment to ourselves, and the pictures that we got out of it were amazing. We were able to take almost all of our pictures before the wedding and got to spend the entire cocktail hour with our guests.
CEREMONY
My husband is a former musician, and I was a music major in college, so our playlist was extremely important to us. We used a spotify playlist for the ceremony, and I was so happy with how it went. My husband got a tiny bit emotional as I was walking down the aisle with my dad, which I didn't expect and was super cute. We had asked my uncle to officiate (we actually got legally married just the two of us on Cinco de Mayo), and I wrote the entire ceremony script myself. He did such a great job and everyone was crying happy tears the whole time. The only mishap was that the best man dropped my wedding band and couldn't find it for about a minute and after that happened, a gust of wind made the officiant lose his place and he pronounced us husband and wife before we exchanged rings. He recovered well and it was nice to have a lighthearted moment in the ceremony where everyone laughed.
COCKTAIL HOUR AND RECEPTION
Our cocktail hour was so fun! We had giant Jenga and cornhole and a wine tasting. What more do you want? Dinner was great, but lasted a lot longer than I had expected, so we ran out of songs on our playlist, but it wasn't a big deal. We cut the cake, and had our first dance, which was probably one of my favorite moments of the entire day. I thought I would be awkward because I am NOT a good dancer and we didn't practice at all, but we both got completely lost in the moment. The father daughter dance was super awkward though, but I totally blame my dad for that one. He kept saying "Damn it, why didn't we practice this?!" and I was laughing the entire time because we danced so poorly together! It took about two songs after the dances to get everyone on the dance floor, but the first Blink 182 song had almost everyone out there! We played Motown during the band breaks and even all the older people were getting into it.
We made a point to take time to step outside to get a moment to ourselves and we kept taking mental photographs during the day so we wouldn't forget anything. I would definitely recommend this, because the day does go by so fast but I remember every single moment that we set aside to be present and enjoy the day.
THINGS THAT WENT WRONG
Not that much, to be honest. I didn't like my hair that much? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I seriously think that's about it. It was insanely humid after the rain and my the way she did my hair the curls didn't hold as long as they usually do. Oh, we had a few people RSVP that decided not to show up. None of them had good excuses. One decided to go to NYC on a trip instead and couldn't afford flights for both. 2 couples decided to go to a BBQ instead. My uncle picked going to church the next day over coming to our wedding. We also had a few people that didn't want to get on the dance floor and just sat at their tables for the entire night, but they were nice and it didn't bother us too much.
THINGS THAT WENT RIGHT
So, so much. All of my vendors were absolutely perfect and we had the wedding of our absolute dreams. I honestly would not change a single thing about the day. It is completely worth all the stress!!

2017.11.01 19:52 RampagingKoala RE's Girls

So Reality Steve has been releasing Arie's girls as he sees them. I will use this week's theorycrafting post to list out who they are thus far and to give you completely accurate information about their lives. But I want to spice it up a bit, so I'll play two truths and a lie for each of them. Bonus points if you can guess the lies.
1) Chelsea Roy: chelsea_roy_ Dear Chelsea here is 29 years old and has a three year old son named Sammy who will totally not come up at all during the show no siree. She is from Maine, and has a ridiculous cold tolerance judging by how many bikini photos she has on Maine beaches.
2) Lauren Schleyer: laurenschleyer Lauren is 31 and works at AT&T as the social media manager. She went to Baylor and as a result is related to Chip and Joanna Gaines. Hopefully she makes it to hometowns so we see them on the show. Reality Steve says her tweets are pretty funny, but then didn't link any so I'll assume he's just blowing smoke out his ass.
3) Maquel Cooper: maquelx Maquel (seriously wtf) is 23 and "models". She was married to the son of a super rich family but then got divorced last year. She's best friends with someone from DWTS (who cares) but supposedly is unable to dance due to a surgical screwup that swapped the big toes on her feet. I hope it comes out on the show.
4) Tia Booth: tiarachel91 Tia is bffls with Raven. She is 28 and a physical therapist. Steve says that there is something to do with an ex back home, so you know that we'll here about how he was unable to satisfy her and how she's never had an orgasm or whatnot. But I'm not convinced that she isn't actually Raven. I mean there are pictures of them together, but those could be photoshopped. It's instagram, anything is possible.
5) Caroline Lunny: carolinelunny Caroline is a realtor in Florida (do I smell love with her and RE already?) She was a former Ms. Massachusetts that year which was a real pain for her because she had to change her name and everything. She graduated from Suffolk University and is actually a 60 year old implanted into a 25 year old body because usually you wait until your 2nd hip surgery before moving down to Ft. Lauderdale.
6) Rebecca Kufrin: bkoof She goes by Becca, and is 27. Her mom survived breast cancer and her dad died 8 years ago so get ready for that one episode where RE totally muffs the emotional aspect. She works at Skyaa, which is a company I don't know but has a name that sounds like an eagle is saying it so that's pretty rad I guess. She won Instagram's award for having coolest username. Also her dog and Rachel's dog are related (2nd cousins).
7) Jenna Cooper: jennacooperfit Oh boy a fitness trainer who wants to have a youtube presence? Color me shocked. But in all seriousness, Steve trashed this 29 year old fitness instructor for this video but I thought it was sweet. She definitely does have a case of the crazy eyes though. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Fuck, now I'm gonna have a smiley blonde trainer waiting for me at my car to shove a shake down my throat. I didn't mean it I swear!
8) Valerie Biles: valeriebiles This 25 year old lives in Nashville and is a marketing coordinator at Twin Peaks (for those of you who don't know, it's like Hooters). Steve called it one of the greatest restaurants ever, and honestly I'd much rather make fun of him for that than call out any egregiousness in Valerie's profile so way to keep it classy Steve. Also she will have red hair on the show.
9) Marikh Mathias: maroosworld This 27 year old is the director of social branding at some company in Salt Lake City. I was unaware that anything happened in Salt Lake City aside from Gordon Hayward leaving and Not Drinking, but we have two people from Utah this year so far so neato on her front. She also models and has an IMDB page, which is behind as I hear that she is going to show up on Quantico as Priyanka Chopra's evil twin on an episode.
10) Lauren Burnham: laureneburnham Another Lauren B who is blonde. Wow ABC, think you can mix it up a bit? This 25 year old works at Vonage in the sales department, so that really doesn't help at all with specificity. She also went to med school and then got a BA in Psych so that feels a little backwards. I actually had her call me once because Vonage was offering a deal so that's pretty neat.
11) Kendall Long: keykendall88 So Kendall here works as a set dresser in LA, but that is not even the coolest part of her bio. She has a twin sister named Kylie. You can't make this shit up. She also plays the ukelele and sings (which you know will happen at least once) and actually worked on the Kardashian 10 year anniversary. Also she and Kendall Jenner have the same birthday. This is so fucking weird you guys. I honestly hope she gets notoriety from this show so her and the Kardashians can hang out together.
12) Bibiana Julian: bibi_julz Bibiana (or Bibi as I will call her from here on out) is actually related to Bibi Netanyahu (her dad and him are cousins) and her dad decided to name her after him. She's 30, and she is an Executive assistant at MTV (for those of you unfamiliar, she's like a secretary/personal assistant/smorgasbord). She was also voted Sexist Cheerleader of 2006 according FHM, a fact that Steve could quote from memory.
13) Seinne Fleming: seinneceleste This 27 year old graduated from Y A L E and is a property manager somewhere in California. Steve posted no other facts about her so I'll say that she looks so much like Jubilee that I did a double take and thought they were bringing Jubilee back. I was gonna make some joke about how they're actually related but then I was like "Jubilee is awesome I'm not going to trash Jubilee" so there you go, now you understand my though processes.
14) Jenna Delaney: jennyddesigns Steve only posted one picture (nice digging, buddy), but this 27 year old hails from the Windy city after bouncing between TCU and Columbia College Chicago. She manages a graphic design site where she specifies that she is a "terrible dancer, loves card games" and has "never had ketchup" which is obviously important to graphic design.
15) Bri Amaranthus: briamaranthus Bri here is a segment reporter for Comcast SportsNet Northwest and also covers the Oregon Ducks. One of my friends who works sports in the Oregon area has met this girl and says she's really nice, and even linked me to a video of one of her segments. She seems pretty good at her job. He also said that these kinds of jobs are typically given to reasonably attractive graduates whom they can pay next to nothing, so if she's looking for an opportunity to shill and maybe move up, this seems like the ticket.
16) Jacqueline Trumbull: trubullina Jackie here works as a clinical research coordinator at Mt. Sinai in New York. She seems like a nice lady, even though there is literally nothing about her. She's looking for jobs in research and mental health. She could be the next Taylor?
17) Bekah Martinez: whats_ur_sign Bekah here (different from Becca before) is a nanny living and working in LA who recently got accepted to UC Irvine to major in art. Apparently also she doesn't own any bras. What a coincidence, I don't own any bras either. #freethenipple
18) Brittany Taylor: ohhaybtay Brittany works for Google, and lives in Austin, TX. She works in talent acquisition there, and is a fan of scootering around the new Austin building on Fridays. She has a knack for finding pools on the top of buildings, which is super dope and I want that in my life. She also has a cute corgi.
19) Lauren Jarreau: LaurenJ225 Lauren is 33 years old and lives in Baton Rouge. She used to work in Vegas as a server at a luxury hotel, and has done some modeling in the past, but moved back to Baton Rouge to pursue work in the psychological field.
20) Britt Johnson thebrittdoll Britt was apparently on the same show that both Lucas and Blake were on, the "Ex Isle". Although I don't think she was dating either one of them. She was even on Blake's season!
21) Amber Wilkerson: everyonceinastyle This 29 year old fashion bloggespray tanner (not joking on that one) hails from Denver CO, where business is really booming. She offers a deal where if you buy weed from the dispensary next door, you get 50% off a spray tan. As a result, multiple people have passed out in her booths. But business is still good. She also has a hilarious instagram name.
22) Annaliese Puccini: annaliesep This actress/writer lives in LA (shocker) and has a video on Funny or Die, which you can watch here. It's okay. I'd give it a funny.
23) Krystal Nielson: kdollfit It's Krystal with a y and she'll suplex you if you get it wrong. This lady here went to Boise State for Communications then UCLA for broadcasting with the hopes of making it as an entertainment reporter, but found a passion in fitness and has competed in many fitness competitions. She currently works in San Diego as an Orange Theory coach, which is the equivalent of being one of those MLM leaders but for fitness instead of Amway beauty products.
24) Ali Harrington: ali_harrington_ This 25 year old OU graduate works at Trunk Club in Dallas. For those of you who don't know (me), Trunk Club is a site that provide personal stylists for people who want/need them. Her outfits are pretty on point, so I could see why she would do that.
25) Ashley Luebke: ashleyluebke This girl is destined for RE if only because she also has that weird spelling in her last name. Luebke and Luyendyk, it's perfect. Anyways, she's 25 and works as a real estate agent in Palm Beach. She also looks a lot like Thandie Newton, so she's got that going for her, especially in this picture.
26) Jessica Carroll: jesscarrolltv She's got a tv at the end of her instagram so you guessed it, she's a TV personality. She also kinda looks like Olivia. But she's from Canada. Aussie Bach fans might recognize her as her stint as Lauren from Matty J's season, which begs the question why is she even on here since she's got a man (yeah I spoiled it but if you haven't been keeping up for the past 3 months then I don't know what to tell you). Oh yeah and she's 26 and living in LA, so she fits right in with the other girls.
27) Nysha Norris: nyshaxoxo This 30 year old nurse lives in Anderson, SC. I have no idea where that is. She's put all her social media on lockdown, and even with that she barely posts which means that she is way too well adjusted to go on this show.
28) Olivia Goethals: oliviagoethals This 23 year old from Naperville, IL has amazing fucking hair. Like seriously, her hair is so amazing. If she continues on this show, I guarantee you every single episode I will say "Wow Olivia has amazing hair" at least once. She works at Agency360, which is some sort of marketing agency in Chicago. She played softball at North Central College, so she stayed pretty local.
29) Lauren G. That's all I got. Steve you dirty fucking liar, you need to give more than just a name and where she lives (California obviously). Apparently she works as a recruiter but I don't know.
Anyways, those are the girls. That's it. No spoilerino. Enjoy :D

10) Lauren Burnham: laureneburnham Another Lauren B who is blonde. Wow ABC, think you can mix it up a bit? This 25 year old works at Vonage in the sales department, so that really doesn't help at all with specificity. She also went to med school and then got a BA in Psych so that feels a little backwards. I actually had her call me once because Vonage was offering a deal so that's pretty neat.
11) Kendall Long: keykendall88 So Kendall here works as a set dresser in LA, but that is not even the coolest part of her bio. She has a twin sister named Kylie. You can't make this shit up. She also plays the ukelele and sings (which you know will happen at least once) and actually worked on the Kardashian 10 year anniversary. Also she and Kendall Jenner have the same birthday. This is so fucking weird you guys. I honestly hope she gets notoriety from this show so her and the Kardashians can hang out together.
12) Bibiana Julian: bibi_julz Bibiana (or Bibi as I will call her from here on out) is actually related to Bibi Netanyahu (her dad and him are cousins) and her dad decided to name her after him. She's 30, and she is an Executive assistant at MTV (for those of you unfamiliar, she's like a secretary/personal assistant/smorgasbord). She was also voted Sexist Cheerleader of 2006 according FHM, a fact that Steve could quote from memory.
13) Seinne Fleming: seinneceleste This 27 year old graduated from Y A L E and is a property manager somewhere in California. Steve posted no other facts about her so I'll say that she looks so much like Jubilee that I did a double take and thought they were bringing Jubilee back. I was gonna make some joke about how they're actually related but then I was like "Jubilee is awesome I'm not going to trash Jubilee" so there you go, now you understand my though processes.
14) Jenna Delaney: jennyddesigns Steve only posted one picture (nice digging, buddy), but this 27 year old hails from the Windy city after bouncing between TCU and Columbia College Chicago. She manages a graphic design site where she specifies that she is a "terrible dancer, loves card games" and has "never had ketchup" which is obviously important to graphic design.
15) Bri Amaranthus: briamaranthus Bri here is a segment reporter for Comcast SportsNet Northwest and also covers the Oregon Ducks. One of my friends who works sports in the Oregon area has met this girl and says she's really nice, and even linked me to a video of one of her segments. She seems pretty good at her job. He also said that these kinds of jobs are typically given to reasonably attractive graduates whom they can pay next to nothing, so if she's looking for an opportunity to shill and maybe move up, this seems like the ticket.
16) Jacqueline Trumbull: trubullina Jackie here works as a clinical research coordinator at Mt. Sinai in New York. She seems like a nice lady, even though there is literally nothing about her. She's looking for jobs in research and mental health. She could be the next Taylor?
17) Bekah Martinez: whats_ur_sign Bekah here (different from Becca before) is a nanny living and working in LA who recently got accepted to UC Irvine to major in art. Apparently also she doesn't own any bras. What a coincidence, I don't own any bras either. #freethenipple
18) Brittany Taylor: ohhaybtay Brittany works for Google, and lives in Austin, TX. I tried searching for her on linkedin but there are a lot of Brittany Taylor's so I kinda gave up, because I was curious if she was a software engineer or did marketing or something like that, but I couldn't tell. But it's pretty dope that she works at google regardless. She also has a cute corgi.
19) Lauren Jarreau: LaurenJ225 Lauren is 33 years old and lives in Baton Rouge. She used to work in Vegas as a server at a luxury hotel, and has done some modeling in the past, but moved back to Baton Rouge to pursue work in the psychological field.
20) Britt Johnson thebrittdoll Britt was apparently on the same show that both Lucas and Blake were on, the "Ex Isle". Although I don't think she was dating either one of them. She was even on Blake's season!
21) Amber Wilkerson: everyonceinastyle This 29 year old fashion bloggespray tanner (not joking on that one) hails from Denver CO, where business is really booming. She offers a deal where if you buy weed from the dispensary next door, you get 50% off a spray tan. As a result, multiple people have passed out in her booths. But business is still good. She also has a hilarious instagram name.
22) Annaliese Puccini: annaliesep This actress/writer lives in LA (shocker) and has a video on Funny or Die, which you can watch here. It's okay. I'd give it a funny.
23) Krystal Nielson: kdollfit It's Krystal with a y and she'll suplex you if you get it wrong. This lady here went to Boise State for Communications then UCLA for broadcasting with the hopes of making it as an entertainment reporter, but found a passion in fitness and has competed in many fitness competitions. She currently works in San Diego as an Orange Theory coach, which is the equivalent of being one of those MLM leaders but for fitness instead of Amway beauty products.
24) Ali Harrington: aliharrington This 25 year old OU graduate works at Trunk Club in Dallas. For those of you who don't know (me), Trunk Club is a site that provide personal stylists for people who want/need them. Her outfits are pretty on point, so I could see why she would do that.
25) Ashley Luebke: ashleyluebke This girl is destined for RE if only because she also has that weird spelling in her last name. Luebke and Luyendyk, it's perfect. Anyways, she's 25 and works as a real estate agent in Palm Beach. She also looks a lot like Thandie Newton, so she's got that going for her, especially in this picture.
26) Jessica Carroll: jesscarrolltv She's got a tv at the end of her instagram so you guessed it, she's a TV personality. She also kinda looks like Olivia. But she's from Canada. Aussie Bach fans might recognize her as her stint as Lauren from Matty J's season, which begs the question why is she even on here since she's got a man (yeah I spoiled it but if you haven't been keeping up for the past 3 months then I don't know what to tell you). Oh yeah and she's 26 and living in LA, so she fits right in with the other girls.
27) Nysha Norris: nyshaxoxo This 30 year old nurse lives in Anderson, SC. I have no idea where that is. She's put all her social media on lockdown, and even with that she barely posts which means that she is way too well adjusted to go on this show.
28) Olivia Goethals: oliviagoethals This 23 year old from Naperville, IL has amazing fucking hair. Like seriously, her hair is so amazing. If she continues on this show, I guarantee you every single episode I will say "Wow Olivia has amazing hair" at least once. She works at Agency360, which is some sort of marketing agency in Chicago. She played softball at North Central College, so she stayed pretty local.
29) Lauren G. That's all I got. Steve you dirty fucking liar, you need to give more than just a name and where she lives (California obviously). Apparently she works as a recruiter but I don't know.
Anyways, those are the girls. That's it. No spoilerino. Enjoy :D

2017.02.22 23:06 hotwifeslutwhore [REQUEST] A map of the US that overlays the FBI's UCR Stats for violent crime with the US Census Bureau's Foreign Born Persons Percent for the same areas

FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics: https://www.ucrdatatool.gov/
UCR Data Online - Reported Crime - Large Local Agency - Data with One Variable
Population Selection: Agency serving all cities and counties, 100,000 population or greater
I selected every agency for 2011 - 2014 (to match the Census data date range, so I don't know if you would total them by agency or average them?). The table ended up looking like this:
Violent crime total Agency State 2011 2012 2013 2014 Birmingham Police Dept AL 3,163 3,237 2,852 3,369

Huntsville Police Dept AL 1,518 1,696 1,507 1,467

Through the US Census Bureau you can get data on what they call Foreign Born Persons for any area. I'm not sure if there is a faster way to get the data, other than manually using their tool and manually matching the city to the correct agency. So like if I start typing in birmingham I can choose Birmingham City Alabama and Ctrl F and start typing "foreign" and see that : "Foreign born persons, percent, 2011-2015 3.6%"
Sorry if this is so long, I just did some really prelimenary research myself and found such a strong correlation that I would love to see some sort of map that shows the relationship between these two stats visually.
I'll copy and paste what I found based on some articles (doesn't have the violent crime data, they just rate cities and you are not supposed to do that says the FBI, heh) that got me all fired up to see the correlation.
Thank you for reading!

Least Safe Cities and the % of Foreign Born persons in the population: 1. St. Louis, MO: 6.7% 2. Detroit, MI: 5.4% 3. Birmingham, AL: 3.6% 4. Memphis, TN: 6.3% 5. Milwaukee, WI: 9.8% 6. Rockford Il: 11.4% 7. Baltimore, MD: 7.7% 8. Little Rock, AK: 7% 9. Oakland, CA: 26.7% 10: Kansas City, MO: 7.7%
Most Safe Cities and the % of Foreign Born persons in the population: 1. Sunnyvale, CA: 45.5% 2. Fremont, CA: 45.1% 3. Alexandria, VA: 27.5% 4. Honolulu, HI: 19.1% 5. San Jose, CA: 38.9% 6. Naperville, IL: 19.3% 7. Bellevue, WA: 36.4% 8. Cary, NC: 20.1% 9. Glendale, CA: 54.4% 10. McAllen, TX: 28%

2016.11.18 17:50 MrTheSpork [D2 and D3] Playoff Preview and Primer - Round One

It's here it's here it's here! The new phonebooks playoffs are here! Will NWMSU and Mount Union defend their titles? Will a different D3 team break through to the championship for the second straight year? Can anyone stop the GSC, the MIAA, or the WIAC? And what exactly are Kohawks, Muskies, and Blue Streaks? Time to dive into (some) of these questions in the Round One preview!
Note: There are a handful of non-playoff postseason games that I'll cover in a post later today. There are more than you'd expect.

Division Two

Bracket

All games are Nov. 19, 12:00PM local time.

Super Region 1

Indiana (PA) (#5) Indiana (PA) Crimson Hawks (9-1, 4-1 away) @ Fairmont State (#4) Fairmont State Falcons (10-1, 5-0 home)

Duvall-Rosier Field - Fairmont, WV -- Image 2

  • Two eastern conference runners-up meet for the first time since 1997, despite just 100 miles separating the schools. The situations are two extremes: IUP heads to their 17th playoff game while the Falcons are new to the D2 playoffs; that difference is just one of the several that highlight the matchup.
  • IUP is an extremely high-scoring team, averaging 47.0 ppg including 29.2 ppg in the first half, but the Falcons' defense won't make any facet easy for them - FSU has allowed 166 points total this season, including three games sub-3 points, have hauled in nearly two INT/gm, and managed 38 sacks on the year.
  • The Hawks will need to rely more on their rushing attack, whose 278.5 ypg is 4th-best nationally, as they've thrown a playoffs-2nd worst 13 INTs - and FSU will make that hurt. Conversely, the Falcons aren't an offensive team, barely hitting 400 ypg to IUP's 502, so a shootout definitely favors the Hawks. This enters "unstoppable force-unmovable object" territory.

Winston-Salem State (#7) Winston-Salem State Rams (9-2, 5-0 away) @ Long Island-Post (#2) LIU-Post Pioneers (11-0, 6-0 home)

Bethpage Federal Credit Union Stadium - Brookville, NY -- Image 2

  • WSSU sneaked into the playoffs despite a #8 regional ranking, having won the CIAA and managed to hit the "earned access" requirement, and their reward is a crack at the perfect Pioneers. Post has, with two exceptions, blown past their entire schedule, punching their #2-seed ticket with a marquee rematch win against Assumption, 43-23, to capture the NE-10 championship.
  • Oddly, despite the surface differences, two very similar defenses will go up against two mostly balanced offenses: WSSU and Post both give up under 350 ypg for under 20 ppg, with the Pioneers holding a minor advantage in run defense to the Rams' pass defense lead. On offense, Post holds all advantages, but by relatively small leads across the board.
  • The Rams dropped two of their first three games before making their way unscathed, but with some near misses, through the CIAA. While the stats suggest the teams are relatively close, the CIAA is a step behind the NE-10 and Post looked better in their wins, especially to close out the season. If the Pioneers get rolling early, this could turn ugly, but a strong defensive stand early could hand some momentum to the Rams.

Assumption (#6) Assumption Greyhounds (9-2, 5-1 away) @ Shepherd (#3) Shepherd Rams (10-0, 5-0 home)

Ram Stadium - Shepherdsville, WV -- Image 2

  • Last year's runner-up Shepherd didn't have a single close game in this undefeated season, yet surprisingly fell behind the #1 and #2 seeds in the final rankings. They'll play 2-loss Assumption as a consolation, but the Greyhounds have only lost to LIU-Post (including last week's 23-43 struggle for the NE-10 crown) and absolutely can't be overlooked in this first-ever matchup of the teams.
  • Shepherd's air-based offense has been the key to their success, with a 330+ ypg effort leading to nearly 40 ppg, but the Greyhounds rarely allow better than 150 yds in the air. Assumption's more balanced - 244.0 ypg passing, 188.5 ypg rushing - but the Rams have only allowed 100+ yards rushing twice this year.
  • Though AC has lost to Post twice, the 18-19 loss in the first game gives an idea of what the Greyhounds can do, and, while Shepherd has yet to win by fewer than ten points, the Rams have to be wary - Assumption's not had any other close games this year.

Super Region 2

UNC Pembroke (#5) UNC Pembroke Braves (9-1, 4-1 away) @ Valdosta State (#4) Valdosta State Blazers (8-2, 5-0 home)

Bazemore-Hyder Stadium - Valdosta, GA -- Image 2

  • VSU is the #3 team in the GSC, but a thin SR2 and a strong conference pushed them to their high seed, hosting a UNCP team whose only loss is a 16-21 collapse against Tuskegee - the Braves gave up all 21 points in the 4th. The Blazers can rely on a more "battle-tested" team, as they've played four regionally-ranked teams this year, but their two losses to the GSC's leading teams don't inspire much confidence.
  • The Blazers hold a 40-yd advantage on offense but a 15-yd deficit on defense; a similar story exists in scoring. These are very closely-matched teams in somewhat similar situations, but only the Braves have actually beaten a playoff team, winning 20-17 over Winston-Salem in their first game.
  • The key for VSU is winning the TO battle, even by a single INT, to disrupt a solid Braves' offense; for Pembroke, a defense averaging ~8 TFL/gm could put the Blazers in long yardage situations, playing on passing inefficiency to overcome VSU's 300+ ypg air attack.

Tuskegee (#7) Tuskegee Golden Tigers (8-2, 3-0 away) @ Newberry (#2) Newberry Wolves (10-1, 5-1 home)

Setzler Stadium - Newberry, SC -- Image 2

  • Different trajectories define these teams, with Newberry playing their best football recently in a ten-game win streak and Tuskegee slipping into the playoffs despite two upsets in their final four games. The Tigers, like fellow HBCU Winston-Salem, fell backwards into the #7 slot due to the "earned access" rule despite their 35-45 loss to 9-2 Virginia State.
  • The back half of the Tigers' schedule had a completely different feeling, especially following the massive upset to Kentucky State, and they'll need to play much, much better to beat red-hot Newberry, who's season finale 27-22 win over Wingate was the closest game they've had following their 29-28 slugfest at North Greenville.
  • With Newberry connecting on nearly 70% of their passes for 303 ypg and Tuskegee holding opponents to 145 ypg in the air, it'll be a contest to see which comes out ahead. If the Tigers look more like their first half, with wins over an FCS opponent and UNCP, it'll be a very tight game. Otherwise, Newberry has a big advantage on offense and a minor defensive lead and that will propel them to an easy win.

North Greenville (#6) North Greenville Crusaders (7-4, 3-3 away) @ Florida Tech (#3) Florida Tech Panthers (8-2, 4-0 home)

Panther Stadium - Melbourne, FL -- Image 2

  • The only four-loss team in the playoffs (shockingly not a 7-seed) gets a shot to prove itself against a regional opponent. Though FIT and NGU are not conference-mates (NGU is independent), the proximity ensures both play a handful of shared opponents.
  • There are a handful of direct comparisons available for the teams: FIT beat Newberry 42-28 while NGU lost 28-29; NGU beat UWA 24-23, but FIT lost 35-45. That said, the Crusaders were crushed 21-52 by North Alabama in their worst loss of the season and the three games following the loss haven't inspired confidence, but FIT is slightly better since their UWA loss.
  • The Panthers are approaching 40 ppg this season while allowing under 20, relying on a solid rushing attack for most of their wins; unfortunately, that same ground game has resulted in 15 fumbles on the year, one of the worst marks in the playoffs. NGU, on the other hand, doesn't have nearly the same TO woes but are 4th-worst in the playoffs in scoring, at 32.6 ppg. Curiously, the Crusaders are the nation-leading red zone offense, converting on 97% of their trips.

Super Region 3

Minnesota-Duluth (#5) Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs (10-1, 4-1 away) @ Emporia State (#4) Emporia State Hornets (10-1, 4-1 home)

Francis G. Welch Stadium - Emporia, KS -- Image 2

  • Similar situations for both teams: 10-win streaks with victories over good conference foes, but a handful of close games. ESU received their first-ever home playoff game due to SoS, most likely, as the MIAC holds a very slight advantage over the NSIC.
  • UMD's offense is one of the strongest in the playoffs, averaging 542 ypg for 46.8 ppg, and, with the Bulldogs also giving up a playoffs-worst 30.7 ppg, there are all the makings of a shootout brewing here. ESU will need a stronger showing than their typical 33.9 ppg which, while top 50, pales next to the onslaught potential.
  • The Hornets give up a dismal 3 sacks/gm, second-worst of the playoff teams, and offensively aren't at the same level as UMD; they'll need to leverage TOs to their advantage, because otherwise an arms race probably won't end with their advantage.

Azusa Pacific (#7) Azusa Pacific Cougars (9-2, 4-2 away) @ Sioux Falls (#2) Sioux Falls Cougars (11-0, 6-0 home)

Bob Young Field - Sioux Falls, SD -- Image 2

  • The Cougar battle should be an interesting one, as both competitors smashed their way through respective conferences, but APU went 1-2 in non-con games, both losses relatively close. It's the first playoff appearance for APU and the first home playoff game for USF, marking each team's best season to date since both moved to D2 following the completion of the 2012 NAIA season.
  • The western Cougars were shocked by last week's loss at Colorado Mesa, 24-33, but APU managed to hang on for the #7 slot just ahead of Southern Arkansas despite their sole marquee wins both against 7-3 Central Washington. Azusa excels at scoring defense, marking a national #5 14.4 ppg and #1 50% red zone, and have a TO margin nearing +2.
  • USF cruised through their NSIC schedule, with the exception of a near miss in their 37-36 win over Bemidji State, but their marquee wins are potentially lesser than APU's. The northern Cougars are hard to pin down as they've won solidly throughout the year, but stats don't back up their dominance nearly as much as expceted.

Central Missouri (#6) Central Missouri Mules (9-2, 4-0 away) @ Harding (#3) Harding Bisons (11-0, 6-0 home)

First Security Stadium - Searcy, AR -- Image 2

  • The Mules have only had one close game following the loss to NWMSU at Arrowhead, managing three games at 40+ points to close out the season, but have first-time host Harding to contend with in their first meeting since 1968. The Bisons (yes, bisons) are surprisingly undefeated after crushing most of the GAC.
  • Harding is the most one-sided team in the nation, leading in rushing with a 388.5 ypg mark, 50 better than #2, but only hitting 53.1 ypg in the air. They've in some cases not completed a single pass during a game, running their option offense easily and efficiently; CMU's 138.5 ypg run defense will have their work cut out for them, but it does mitigate some of their average passing defense.
  • Perhaps surprisingly, Harding is very effective against the pass, keeping opponents under 160 ypg while also holding strong against the run for an excellent 69.7 ypg; they are the #1 defense in the nation, both in yardage and scoring. The Mules are a bit back in scoring offense at 37.9 ppg and, to beat the firewall that is the Bisons' defense, that'll need to step up big time.

Super Region 4

Colorado Mesa (#5) Colorado Mesa Mavericks (9-2, 4-1 away) @ Texas A&M-Commerce (#4) Texas A&M-Commerce Lions (10-1, 4-1 home)

Memorial Stadium - Commerce, TX -- Image 2

  • Mesa rebounded strongly after two surprising losses that booted them out of the national rankings, pulling into their #5 seed with last week's win over APU; Commerce, meanwhile, has only one 1-point loss to Midwestern State and have crushed most of their other opponents. With both teams riding solid win streaks, this should be one of the more interesting matchups.
  • The Lions are, for lack of a better term, a middling playoff team, excelling only at ball control. The Mavericks generally rely on a high-scoring offense to win games, posting a playoffs-worst 30.7 ppg on defense but averaging better than 42 ppg on offense, though that does include the 87-14 rout of NM Highlands. Unfortunately, the playoff-worst rush defense also belongs to Mesa.
  • This game will, obviously, tell us a lot about each team, as there haven't been many opportunities for either team to make a serious statement. With the Mavs porous defense and the Lions... less awful defense, it's hard to pin down a track for the game; a blowout and a shootout seem equally likely.

Midwestern State (#7) Midwestern State Mustangs (8-2, 5-1 away) @ Ferris State (#2) Ferris State Bulldogs (9-2, 5-1 home)

Top Taggart Field - Big Rapids, MI -- Image 2

  • MSU barely held on to their playoff slot, losing 28-30 to Eastern NM in their final game, but will head to their first-ever matchup with the Bulldogs. Ferris State plays just their second Texas team in their history, the first their 48-30 first round win against MSU conference-mate TAMU-Commerce.
  • FSU pulled close with GVSU in Allendale, but the Lakers' 28-point first half ended up too much to overcome. Their two losses, against the two GLIAC division champs, surprisingly weren't enough to bump the Bulldogs down to #3, but MSU is by no means an easy opponent: FSU needs to find an answer for RB Vincent Johnson, whose 19 rushing TDs are good for #3 nationally.
  • The two teams represent some of the lower-scoring teams in the playoff field, at ~35 ppg each, but MSU is second-to-last in the playoffs for rushing defense to FSU's #4 rushing offense mark. If the Bulldogs get it going on the ground, there's potential for FSU to run away early.

Colorado Mines (#6) Colorado Mines Orediggers (9-2, 4-1 away) @ Southwest Baptist (#3) Southwest Baptist Bearcats (10-1, 4-1 home)

Plaster Stadium - Boliver, MO -- Image 2

  • The Bearcats sneaked into the #3 slot, crushing most of the GLVC including their final five games, where SBU managed 50+ points four times; Mines, owing to one of the more powerful offenses in D2, slashed through their final seven games after back-to-back losses.
  • Mines has the nation's best passing offense and it's no contest: they average more than 370 ypg and chunk their way down the field en route to a 48.8 ppg output. Unfortunately, the Bearcats lag that scoring output by about a TD and allow a mediocre 220.5 ypg in the air. SBU can pass well, but they'll need to make up some offense on the ground, which Mines defends adequately.
  • While SBU is the higher seed the Orediggers could easily outplay their given level: they've taken down Azusa Pacific this year, albeit at home, and took Colorado Mesa to 2OT early in the year. Mines' offense can be unstoppable if it starts moving early, and there's a good chance we'll see 1000 combined yards in this game.

Division Three

Bracket

Note: D3 doesn't exactly seed the playoffs, so the leading numbers you see are the national rankings.

All games are Nov. 19, 12:00PM local time.

South Region

Redlands (RV/RV) Redlands Bulldogs (8-1, 3-1 away) @ Mary Hardin-Baylor (2/1) Mary Hardin-Baylor Crusaders (10-0, 5-0 home)

Crusader Stadium -- Image 2

  • Redlands is the SCIAC autobid and they'll have their work cut out for them. Redlands isn't bad by any stretch (8x playoff competitor, undefeated conference slate), but MHB has six undefeated regular seasons over seven years and have beaten the Bulldogs twice in the postseason over the last five years.
  • The Crusaders have scored fewer than 55 pts just one time this season, usually pulling to a big, early lead before laying off some; Redlands, on the other hand, have scored more than 30 four times, twice against the bottom of the SCIAC. While it's certainly possible that the Bulldogs will play exceptionally well this game, chances are good the Cru will yet again advance to the second round.

Linfield (7/8) Linfield Wildcats (8-1, 3-1 away) @ Hardin-Simmons (11/11) Hardin-Simmons Cowboys (

Shelton Stadium - Abilene, TX -- Image 2

  • The Wildcats continue their postseason streak, though they're chiefly concerned with a different streak, but to get out of the first round - and set up a likely rematch with MHB - they'll have to get through the ASC #2 team in HSU. Linfield's been excellent on defense, allowing more than 14 points just twice, but it's the offense that'll likely need to step up against a very good Cowboys defense.
  • Linfield and HSU share their sole loss, both against MHB, but Linfield ended up behind the 8-ball early, eventually giving up 66 points in one of the most lopsided games they've played. The Cowboys managed quite a bit better, holding the pinnacle of D3 offenses to just 20 points in the loss; however, the Wildcats look much improved from their game and some key defensive stops for either team could make this a very close game.

Huntingdon (25/25) Huntingdon Hawks (9-1, 4-1 away) @ Wheaton (IL) (12/13) Wheaton Thunder (9-1, 6-0 home)

McCully Stadium - Wheaton, IL -- Image 2

  • Wheaton (whose honor code makes BYU look like ASU) earned an at-large bid, losing just to CCIW champ (and rival) North Central, 25-35. The Thunder are undefeated in the first round, 9-0, but have a solid Huntingdon to get past for a tenth first-round win; Huntingdon took the USA South crown and autobid and slipped into the rankings just in time for the playoffs.
  • The Thunder have had their share of close calls - a 19-14 win over Carthage, a 10-6 win over Elmhurst - but there have been no major surprises as Wheaton's beaten everyone they were expected to beat. Huntingdon, meanwhile, looked vulnerable following the loss to NC Wesleyan, 31-41, to open conference play, but they've improved tremendously to close out the season, which includes a 71-0 win over Greensboro. Difficult to pick an obvious favorite, but if history's anything to go on, the Hawks will need to play very well to have a shot.

Rose-Hulman Rose-Hulman Engineers (8-2, 4-1 away) @ North Central (4/5) North Central Cardinals (10-0, 5-0 home)

Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium - Naperville, IL -- Image 2

  • For the first time in their 118-year history, Rose-Hulman will compete in the playoffs. RHIT is an unusual school, with almost all their degree options in the STEM areas and essentially no graduate students, but the nerds have a football team that's headed north to play suburban Chicago team North Central. The Cardinals will be a very tough test for the Engineers, as the CCIW is markedly better than the HCAC and none of NCC's opponents have been within 10 points of the Cardinals.
  • For RHIT to win, it'll take the best game they've played this year, including last week's 74-6 win over Earlham; however, the Engineers took down ranked Franklin, 23-22, in September. While there's potential, the Engineers will need to keep up their ball-hawking defense and keep at least within striking distance throughout - a two-score, come-from-behind win probably isn't happening.

West Region

Northwestern (MN) Northwestern-St. Paul Eagles (9-1, 5-0 away) @ St. Thomas (3/3) St. Thomas Tommies (10-0, 5-0 home)

O'Shaughnessy Stadium - St. Paul, MN -- Image 2

  • Though the teams are just eight miles apart in St. Paul, there couldn't be a larger gap between the programs. This will be the Eagles' first-ever playoff appearance while the Tommies have their sights set on a return to the championship game; the previous (and only) two games between these schools were easy UST wins, 41-0 and 63-14.
  • Northwestern is unfortunately 2-9 against MIAC schools since 2010, their two wins against Augsburg and St. Olaf, and the shared opponent in Augsburg this year is another strike against the Eagles: NW won 14-0, but the Tommies crushed the Auggies, 55-7. While there's never a sure thing in football, this is potentially the least likely upset in the first round.

Monmouth (IL) (17/21) Monmouth (IL) Fighting Scots (10-0, 5-0 away) @ Coe (13/16) Coe Kohawks (10-0, 5-0 home)

Clark Field - Cedar Rapids, IA -- Image 2

  • The only undefeated matchup in the playoffs, this game pits the IIAC champ Coe against the MWC champ Monmouth, both having town through their schedules. The Kohawks have definitely had some close calls, but they've also notched solid wins over Central and Dubuque in the conference slate, while Monmouth doesn't have nearly the same resume, thus the traveling out to Iowa.
  • The Scots are solid on both sides of the ball, managing 48.9 ppg on offense and a nation-leading 8.4 ppg on defense. That said, the MWC hasn't put up much of a fight, as no other teams in the conference have received so much as a vote - this is the first test for Monmouth, and they'll play a top-20 offense for the first time this year. This might be the closest game of this round.

Wisconsin-Platteville (16/12) UW-Platteville Pioneers (8-2, 5-1 away) @ St. John's (MN) (9/9) St. John's Johnnies (9-1, 4-1 home)

Clemens Stadium - Collegeville, MN -- Image 2

  • Two at-large teams face off, with Platteville, the most dangerous two-loss team, looking to set up a rematch with UW-Oshkosh in the second round and St. John's, the long-suffering MIAC runner-up, hoping for a third round rematch with rival St. Thomas. Outside of the few teams that finished ahead of them, both teams wrecked their conference, but Platteville lost to Oshkosh and Whitewater by a combined 15 points while St. John's fell to St. Thomas 21-33.
  • This is one of the most intriguing games of the first round, but the Johnnies are served well by playing at home; with two of the best defenses in the country facing off, there's a good chance this ends like Alabama-LSU - a low-scoring, defensive slugfest where the first score could be the only score.

Washington (MO) (NRV) Washington (MO) Bears (8-2, 5-0 away) @ Wisconsin-Oshkosh (5/4) UW-Oshkosh Titans (9-1, 4-0 home)

Titan Stadium - Oshkosh, WI -- Image 2

  • Wash U will need to leverage every advantage they can find against the WIAC's #2 team to earn their first ranked win in over five years, but Oshkosh is very, very good. The Titans remain the last team to beat UWW in the regular season, but this year fell just 3 points shy in Whitewater; the Bears, meanwhile, sneaked in by virtue of a tiebreaker against Berry, taking the SAA autobid and playoff slot.
  • With Oshkosh holding a statistical advantage in most categories of interest, the Bears have a shot if they can use their offensive prowess to outgun the Titans. It's possible that, in a shootout, Wash U could emerge the victor, but it'll take their best game of the year.

East Region

Bridgewater State Bridgewater State Bears (8-2, 4-1 away) @ Alfred (15/14) Alfred Saxons (10-0, 5-0 home)

Yunevich Stadium - Alfred, NY -- Image 2

  • Though BSU sits at just two losses, they've had two OTs and three close calls after dropping their first two games, going undefeated in the MASCAC despite their best efforts. The Bears aren't a great team, but they'll play one of the best teams in the northeast in Alfred, who hasn't lost a game yet and who's coming off a solid win over St. John Fisher to capture the E8 title.
  • The Bears are solid defensively, managing to hold opponents under 300 ypg, but they're a liability on offense and may not be able to score enough to keep pace with the Saxons' 37.6 ppg output.

Husson (RV/NR) Husson Eagles (9-1, 4-1 away) @ (23/RV) Western New England Western New England Golden Bears (10-0, 5-0 home)

Golden Bear Stadium - Springfield, MA -- Image 2

  • WNE just made its appearance in the national poll, despite an undefeated mark, due entirely to a schedule that saw only two teams above .500 on it; they'll play Husson, who's torn through the ECFC, winning every conference matchup by multiple scores. Husson has the most absurd rush defense I've ever seen, as they've allowed 29.4 ypg over the season, so while they may not manage to move the ball themselves it's very difficult to do so yourself.
  • Husson's solid defense and strong offense could play hell with the Golden Bears' perfect season, but WNE has a very strong rushing attack. There's potential for either team to grab the lead early and maintain it throughout due to the defensive effort, but if either team comes back from a deficit, it'll likely be the Bears.

Mount Union (8/7) Mount Union Purple Raiders (9-1, 5-0 away) @ Hobart (18/19) Hobart Statesmen (9-1, 5-0 home)

Boswell Field - Geneva, NY -- Image 2

  • There's zero precedent for UMU coming off a loss, so while they're the reigning champs this is in no way a gimme game. Hobart is just the second ranked opponent for the Purple Raiders this year, so while UMU could come out firing on all cylinders there's still a shot for the Statesmen to surprise the vaunted Raiders. However, this is the 25th consecutive playoff appearance for Mount Union, and they've posted a 91-15 record in the postseason.
  • For the first time in 20 years, the Raiders have to travel for a playoff game, but it will be a school-record seventh away game this year. UMU is still top ten in most statistical categories and holds opponents under 10 ppg; Hobart will need to rely on QB Shane Sweeney to get moving through the air, but this will be a massive uphill battle for the Statesmen.

Randolph-Macon Randolph-Macon Yellow Jackets (9-1, 4-1 away) @ Johns Hopkins Johns Hopkins Blue Jays (10-0, 5-0 home)

Homewood Field - Baltimore, MD -- Image 2

  • RMC received the ODAC autobid on a tiebreaker and will head north to Baltimore in an attempt to end the Jays' undefeated season. This is the sixth straight season JHU has hosted a first round game, as they've been the class of the Mid-Atlantic for years and this year's senior class will leave with a 42-3 mark, setting the record for a single senior class.
  • The Yellow Jackets rank 6th for scoring defense at 11.5 ppg and allow scores on 52.6% of red zone trips, but the ODAC isn't especially deep and JHU will be by far their toughest matchup. With the Jays' offense one of the best in the country it'll take better play than RMC has had all year to keep close.

North Region

Olivet (RV/RV) Olivet Comets (9-1, 4-1 away) @ John Carroll (10/6) John Carroll Blue Streaks (9-1, 5-0 home)

Don Shula Stadium - University Heights, OH -- Image 2

  • The Blue Streaks were catapulted into championship contention with a massive win over Mount Union, handing the Purple Raiders their first regular season loss in a decade. JCU plays Olivet, a team headed to their second-ever playoffs (first in 2007) whose sole loss was to fringe playoff team St. John Fisher, 10-52. The Comets rely on a stingy run defense that's allowed just 65.6 ypg, holding two of their MIAA opponents to negative yardage.
  • John Carroll's sole non-con game was also their only loss, falling 14-33 to UW-Oshkosh to open the season. Since then, the Streaks have reeled off nine straight wins, including the 31-28 UMU triumph, and has held the always-tough OAC to 225.7 ypg. It'll likely be another defensive battle, but JCU can't afford to come out flat after their upset win.

Wesley (22/18) Wesley Wolverines (8-2, 4-1 away) @ Stevenson (21/20) Stevenson Mustangs (9-1, 4-1 home)

Mustang Stadium - Owings Mills, MD -- Image 2

  • Wesley heads across the Chesapeake to face Baltimore-area Stevenson in the first matchup of the regional teams. Stevenson is headed to their first-ever postseason appearance after the foundation of the program in 2010; the Wolverines are on their 12th-straight appearance. Owing to their proximity both teams have played Delaware Valley, with WU falling to the Aggies 14-21 in the opener while the Mustangs shut out DelVal, 19-0.
  • Both teams are pass-first, but Stevenson has forced 24 INTs this year en route to a #6 slot in TO margin at +1.70 and they'll abuse any mistakes Wesley makes; Wesley isn't as efficient at disrupting possessions, but they have a solid pass defense that's allowed just 164 ypg this year. Both teams average more than 36 ppg, but it'll likely be the defense that decides this game.

Wittenberg (20/17) Wittenberg Tigers (9-1, 4-1 away) @ Thomas More (14/15) Thomas More Saints (9-1, 4-0 home)

BB&T Field - Crestview Hills, KY -- Image 2

  • Cincinnati and Dayton separate these two teams, who've played four times since 20001. The Saints are still looking for their first win against Wittenberg, and they'll have a great shot in the national stage, but both sides have high-scoring offenses and shut-down defenses in one of the most closely-matched (on paper) games of the playoffs.
  • The Tigers are second only to Monmouth in scoring defense, allowing 9.6 ppg while managing more than 35 themselves, but TMC will be the best offense they've faced at 42.8 ppg and 517.9 ypg. While the Saints are relatively ordinary on defense, they've forced opponents to try to match their offensive onslaught and, but for their opening-game 39-43 loss to Franklin, only Carnegie Mellon's come close. It's another matchup of extreme offense and extreme defense.

Lakeland Lakeland Muskies (7-3, 4-1 away) @ Wisconsin-Whitewater (1/2) UW-Whitewater Warhawks (10-0, 6-0 home)

Perkins Stadium - Whitewater, WI -- Image 2

  • It was a bit of a surprise to see D3's finest this far down the list - a game with JCU will be at the Streaks - but the undefeated 6x national champs play a Lakeland team that slipped into the playoffs as the NACC autobid. The Wisconsin schools share one opponent in UW-Platteville with decidedly different results: UWW won a hard-fought battle in Platteville, 30-24, but the Muskies couldn't get their offense moving at home, falling to UWP 0-56 and managing just 160 yards.
  • Whitewater is one of the few teams considered a championship favorite, as they've made nine championship games and are 31-3 in home playoff games; Lakeland, unfortunately, has yet to win a playoff game in their four postseason trips. The Muskies have played their best football recently, however, and managed 30+ in their last five games, 50+ in their final two; Whitewater hasn't been as dominant, heading to OT against River Falls and needing a big second half to pull away from Stout. Chances are good the Warhawks' home win streak won't end here, but there's always potential for a shocker.

2016.06.05 03:14 KriiLunAus Update to the house key drama

OK. I believe the issue is now settled between my SO and I. That doesn't mean there won't be a huge blowout with Thundersaurus when and if she finds out though. Then again I don't care about her feelings when it comes to the new house and her having a key.
I got SO to put down the video games so I could talk to him. He didn't want to at first, but finally agreed. I started my telling him the way he talked to me the other day was uncalled for, very disrespectful, and bringing the engagement party into it was just manipulative and abusive. I brought up Reddit and how the only time people said to give her a key was if it was a fake key. I mentioned a couple people who had their MILs kill their dogs when they weren't home, trashed the place, would walk in whenever and do whatever they wanted. I also said it was a power and control thing and I feel like her having a key is a boundary thing and I won't feel secure in our new home if she had access whenever.
I told him I don't care if she didn't abuse the key at the condo because they was in his name, plus she probably didn't because she hated how far it was. While the townhouse is also out of her way there is enough in the area where she can easily be in the area for errands any given day.
He basically was saying how he was pissed he doesn't get a say in the key matter and how I wanted my way. That's why I brought up Reddit and the 100+ comments saying how it was a bad idea and not one person said to give her a real key. He finally saw where I was coming from on the key and said he just is sick and tired of her bitching and figured it would be easier to just give her a key to shut her up. I explained why this is a bad idea and how we shouldn't let the terrorists win.
So we will tell her no key or just give her a fake. I'm tempted with the fake key to see if she will try to sneak into our house. Fiancé also wants cameras so if she ever does I can show the video for all our Reddit entertainment. ;)
We are thinking of getting one of those smart locks that you can access with your phone since I do lose keys a lot and Thundersaurus doesn't have a smart phone.
Also the engagement/housewarming party is back. I still don't have a date set yet for it since I want to have the new place all pretty before I throw a party, but probably later July or August for that. Yay! If any of you want to come you are more than welcome to be there. (The Aussie pups will be at their new nanny's house for the day so don't be disappointed if you don't see them there) It's a no gift event. Just an excuse to chill and have fun. :) I should add it is by Naperville, IL for anyone interested.
So end of the day things with the key issue are resolved for now. If anything interesting happens with Thundersaurus and her finding out she isn't getting a key I will share that story when/if it happens.
Thank you everyone for the love and support. Don't worry. I'm keeping a close eye on my Fiancé and how he talks to me in the future, or he can marry his hand because I am not putting up with that. I'll cut a little slack on it only because I know we are both mentally exhausted and stressed being in Hell so long.

2014.11.30 20:31 Medicman1981 Please help me build a PC for my nephew and Minecraft fan. This would really make his Christmas! (X-post /r/buildapcforme)

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
School work, playing minecraft, email, word processing, youtube browsing, etc.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
The least expensive possible. $350 would be an absolute max, but 250 to 300 is better.
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Need it by December 24th this year.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Tower, any components that go inside the tower including the power supply. Don't need the monitor, keyboard or mouse.
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
Naperville, IL, USA. Yes, Westmont IL Microcenter is close to me.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Generic Dell monitor with DVI connector, generic dell mouse and Keyboard, both USB connected.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Neither.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Nothing Special I can think of.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Would prefer mid tower case and standard ATX size mobo (12 x 9.6 inches).
Do you need a copy of Windows 7 or 8.1 included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference for one or the other?
I have an extra windows 7 key to give him.
Extra info or particulars:
My 12 year old nephew REALLY wants a new computer for Christmas. I built my own computer this year, and he loves it. Unfortunately I don't know enough about computers to know what specs I need to be able to accomplish my goals. My sister can't afford to get him the computer, so I would like to try. My funds are a bit tight, so I just want to spend the minimum necessary to allow him to play Minecraft, word process, cruise the net, email, browse youtube, etc.
