Reviving a Retro Kenmore Central Vacuum (Filter, Fittings and Hose)

2020.09.25 19:52 dpgoverride Reviving a Retro Kenmore Central Vacuum (Filter, Fittings and Hose)

Reviving a Retro Kenmore Central Vacuum (Filter, Fittings and Hose)
This is my first contribution on Reddit so I hope someone, somewhere finds it useful.
I acquired an old school Kenmore central vac (Model # 116.4802080C) and have spent hours scouring the net in my mission to set it up as a garage vacuum. Considering that I am not trying to set this up in the traditional manner I was presented with three problems - Filters, Fittings and a hose. I am no expert but from what I can tell these vacs have a flow-through motor (dirty suction air cools the motor) that is setup like a Tangential Bypass motor (dirty suction air is exhausted out of the canister). This presents two negatives - shorter motor life and dust exhausting into your clean space or wherever you have the exhaust routed. In my case I do not want to punch a hole through my garage walls to run an exhaust pipe out and I didn't want to fiddle with having to secure an exhaust hose outside of the garage every time I use the vac.

Filter Dilemma:
After some searching I stumbled across the ActiVac III Exhaust HEPA filter and thought maybe, just maybe this would remedy my issue. After installing it on the vac I quickly discovered it only filters about 70% of the dust despite it's 99.7% claim. It is also about $55 a filter so using it as a primary filter just wasn't logical. Going back to the drawing board I took measurements of the internal dimensions of the vacuums OEM "filter" which really isn't anything more than a plastic mesh to keep larger particles and hair from entering the motor. I came up with a max length of 10.25", max outside diameter of 11" and minimum inside diameter of 3.5" and with that I set off to the internet. The problem I had here was that measurement specifications are not something manufacturers fully list, you might get a length or an OD and sometimes both but usually it was part numbers and compatible vac brands.
One evening, before bed, I plopped down at my computer desk for a quick filter hunt and a filter that I had seen many times and equally ignored all the same caught my attention with "10 inch". I smashed the keys on my oh so wonderful Logitech K400r (NOT!) into a google search with the part number and found that this filter might just work coming in at 10.25" long and 6.5" wide, I just hoped the ID would work since it wasn't listed. After a test fit and some modifications I finally got the filter installed and the vac all back together and fired it up - a plume of residual dust puffed out of the ActiVac filter before clearing up to what I consider to be "clean" air.
Filter Solution:
The filter I ordered is the Vacuflo 10" Cartridge filter 8107-01 which is actually used for several models of vacs.
  • Replacement for Vacuflo models: FC1550, Royal models: CS1200
  • Dirt Devil Pro Series models: 1390, Dirt Devil Platinum Force models: 499e, 599e, 699e, 799e and 1099e
  • Replacement for Dirt Devil model: CV3200
How to install:
  • Cut out the locking plate on the closed end with a jigsaw or similar tool to open it up to the ID of the filter.
  • Apply some adhesive backed weather stripping to the plastic left on the filter after you make your cut.
  • Slip the cut out end over the OEM "filter" and install back onto the vac as you would normally, Reinstall your canister and gasket and you are set!
  • If you do not have the OEM "filter" the 8107-01 can still work for you...The two wire arms that accept the metal clip to hold it all together can be used to secure this filter. You would need to make a larger wedge, maybe out of wood, to work in place of the OEM metal clip.

Fittings and Hose:
I did not set this up in the traditional manner using SCH20 pvc and fittings as I wanted more of an actual shop vac approach. The hoses, fittings, adapters and accessories are much cheaper than purpose made central vacuum items. If you don't have a scrape piece of SCH20 2" pvc then you will need to get some or find a suitable replacement (SCH40 1.5" can work with some sanding). If you do have some scrap parts that have previously been glued together you can separate them with a heat gun and flat tip screw driver.
I used the following...
  • Cen-Tec Systems 92707 Shop vac hose 20 ft. with cuffs and adapter
  • Central Vacuum 2" to 1 3/4" Reducer Coupling
  • Fernco 2" x 1.5" DWV Flexible PVC Coupling

PVC Reducer, Fernco Coupler and Cen-Tec vac adapter
At the end of the day I got a free, obsolete Kenmore central vac and was able to get it installed and working in my garage for roughly $115. The nice thing about it is should the motor ever crap out on this unit you can still get replacements for about $130 and anything else that could fail on this setup is fairly easy to get ahold of.

Extrusion/printing problems
Hi guys, today I installed marlin onto my Ender 5 (using the tutorial by teachingtech) and I wanted to run XYZcube as a test print and this happened. I stopped the print after a few minutes, inspected it and tried searching for the solution but I am not sure what is really happening. Could you please help me?
https://preview.redd.it/q83rzmhe7bp51.jpg?width=2340&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=1a615d7b7a0a05229facc97996751e46b3c789c0

Printer setting: End: 195, Bed: 55, F.l. speed: 18 mm/s, print s.: 75 mm/s.
I tried extruding into air and then took a look at the line it made - there were these funny balls on it.I am also adding a comparison from yesterday (same model, default firmware)

Ender 5 Pro hates this part of my model (this time around)
Printer: Ender 5 Pro Filament: Esun PLA+ Black See photos for explanation of "tall side down" and "short side down" Layer Height: .16 for Tall side down and .2 for short side down. Print Speed: 80mm/s (tall side down) 55mm/s (short side down attempts) Infill: 75% w/ zig zagSupports: 15% fill, zig zag, touching bed only 55 degree overhang. Retraction: 7 & speed 50mm/s Please let me know if there's any other settings you'd like to know. I've built my profile off of CHEP's Cura profiles for 4.6. Esteps are calibrated to within 1mm on 100mm extrusions (I feel I can't accurately mark it well enough to justify a mark) and calibration cube comes out to X-20.01 Y-20.00 and Z-20.01 which was printed calibrated and verified printed again immediately prior to the first attempt.
First two print attempts were with the stock magnetic bed that comes with the ender 5 pro and the second 2 were with the magnetic PEI sheet that I received from amazon. It's my favorite print bed ever so far.
I've been trying to print a 3rd adapter piece that I designed. I know the STL works because I've printed it before with the only change being that I made the height of an opening 1.5mm taller so that I could clear an overhang for the piece it attaches to. The first attempt print was done overnight, the filament was snapped cleanly and then Capricorn tube was jammed but the printer thought it finished the print so it was homed. 2nd print was stopped as it repeated the snapping of the filament and was printing mid-air. I dried the filament at 105 for 8 hours after this thinking humidity had turned it brittle as the spool had been out 3-4 days working on multiple multi-day prints back to back. During this time, I printed the grey falcon model at 50% size with the raft. It looks amazing. Zero stringing, etc. I also pulled the Capricorn tubing and checked the nozzle for clogs. None were found so I pieced it all back together and then printed the model.
3rd attempt, I re-sliced the STL thinking that the gcode was bad and that was the issue. I rotated it to help get the problem area lower to the plate so that 1) it would mess up faster if it was going to mess up and 2) save around 13 grams of filament off an 86 gram print (my replacement black spool wont be here till Saturady so I'm trying to make the last 40% of this one stretch). This again failed at roughly the exact same area. The 4th attempt, I went to my cad, re-exported the STL and tried a new slice once again. Again it failed the same area.
The print layer seems to turn from a quality layer to more of a crispy crunchy support style layer. I don't know what else to do/try/look at. I've been printing for 2 months with great success and have even made THIS EXACT ADAPTER I'm trying to print twice before. I appreciate the thoughts and help!
4th attempt
First attempt (right) both of them printed \"tall side down\"
3rd attempt. Printed short side down, Print tried after dehydrating for 8 hours.
Close up of print #1 failure.
Previous prints done successfully. First failure in the middle. Grey falcon was printed between failure 2 and 3 while the filament was drying.
Up close of failure 2- printed tall side down. Failure 1 is in the background (fuzzy)

2020.09.24 21:12 StevenStevens43 Gododdin literature

Gododdin literature
Welsh triads:
I will begin this article by first explaining why i refer to the Welsh triads, as Gododdin literature.
And the reason is, because the sub-roman welsh language actually takes root in the East coast of modern day Scotland. Approximate to todays Lothian region.
Gododdin
The Gododdin (Welsh pronunciation: [ɡɔˈdɔðɪn]) were a P-Celtic-speaking Brittonic) people of north-eastern Britannia, the area known as the Hen Ogledd or Old North (modern south-east Scotland and north-east England), in the sub-Roman period. Descendants of the Votadini, they are best known as the subject of the 6th-century Welsh poem Y Gododdin, which memorialises the Battle of Catraeth and is attributed to Aneirin.

Gododdin territory
Norse-Gaels:
Now the Gododdin were almost definitely Norse-Gaels, speaking a Norse form of Gaelic.
Name
The meaning of Gall-Goídil is "foreigner Gaels" or "foreign Gaels" and although it can in theory mean any Gael of foreign origin, it always was used of Gaels (i.e. Gaelic-speakers) with some kind of Norse identity. This term is subject to a large range of variations depending on chronological and geographical differences in the Gaelic language, e.g. Gall Gaidel, Gall Gaidhel, Gall Gaidheal, Gall Gaedil, Gall Gaedhil, Gall Gaedhel, Gall Goidel, Gall Ghaedheil, etc. The modern term in Irish is Gall-Ghaeil or Gall-Ghaedheil, while the Scottish Gaelic is Gall-Ghàidheil.[1]
The Norse–Gaels often called themselves Ostmen or Austmen, meaning East-men

Norse settlements
Odin:
The name Gododdin, almost definitely derives from the Norse god, Odin.
Odin
Odin (/ˈoʊdɪn/;[1] from Old Norse: Óðinn, IPA: [ˈoːðinː]) is a widely revered god in Germanic mythology. Norse mythology

Odin
English language:
Now this brings me to the supposed "legendary" founder of Gwynedd, "Cunedda", who was supposed to have been a leader of the Goddodin, and the leader of the group that spread Welsh Gaelic to Wales, as well as playing a role in forming the roots for the early English language.
Kingdom
Cunedda, legendary founder of the Kingdom of Gwynedd in north Wales, is supposed to have been a Manaw Gododdin warlord who migrated southwest during the 5th century.[4]
Link for photo
Map of place-names between the Firth of Forth and the River Tees: in green, names likely containing Brittonic elements; in red and orange, names likely containing the Old English elements -ham and -ingaham respectively. Brittonic names lie mostly to the north of the Lammermuir and Moorfoot Hills and may reflect the territory of the Gododdin.[5]
Cunedda:
And despite the claim in the above quote, Cunedda is not in the slightest bit "legendary".
Cunedda
Cunedda ap Edern or Cunedda Wledig[1] (fl. 5th century) was an important early Welsh leader, and the progenitor of the royal dynasty of Gwynedd.
Myth:
The only debate to be had regarding Cunedda, is regarding his descendancy.
Some scholars consider him being of Norse Gaelic descent a myth, in favour of the more preposterous and highly unlikely claim, that a norse-gaelic speaking leader of a tribe known as "god" "oddin" and spreading a language which probably pre-dated "Roman" is somehow a Roman descendant.
This claim can only be explained by early political minded Romano Brits that wished to re-establish the Roman empire by claiming every man and his dog is a Roman heir.
Background and life
[2] His genealogy is traced back to a grandfather named Padarn Beisrudd, which literally translates as Paternus of the "red tunic". One traditional interpretation identifies Padarn as a Roman (or Romano-British) official of reasonably high rank who had been placed in command of Votadini troops stationed in the Clackmannanshire region of Scotland in the 380s or earlier by the Emperor Magnus Maximus. Alternatively, he may have been a frontier chieftain who was granted Roman military rank, a practice attested elsewhere along the empire's borders at the time. In all likelihood, Padarn's command in Scotland was assumed after his death by his son, Edern (Latin: Æturnus), and then passed to Edern's son, Cunedda.
According to Old Welsh tradition contained in section 62 of the Historia Brittonum, Cunedda came from Manaw Gododdin, the modern Clackmannanshire region of Scotland:
Y Gododdin:
Some of the finest Welsh literature ever wrote, was written by the Gododdin, which would include the Welsh triads.
Cultural influence
There are a number of references to Y Gododdin in later Medieval Welsh poetry. The well-known 12th-century poem Hirlas Owain by Owain Cyfeiliog, in which Owain praises his own war-band, likens them to the heroes of the Gododdin and uses Y Gododdin as a model. A slightly later poet, Dafydd Benfras, in a eulogy addressed to Llywelyn the Great, wishes to be inspired "to sing as Aneirin sang / The day he sang the Gododdin". After this period this poetry seems to have been forgotten in Wales for centuries until Evan Evans (Ieuan Fardd) discovered the manuscript in the late 18th century. From the early 19th century onwards there are many allusions in Welsh poetry.

Y Gododdin
Caswallawn:
Now this brings me to the historical Cassivellaunus.
However the historical Cassivellaunus is the exact same person as the legendary and mythological Caswallawn, mentioned in the Welsh triads.
Quite simply,Cassivellanus was his Roman name, given by Julius Caesar, but Caswallawn was his Celtic name, which is what Celts knew him as.
Cassivellaunus
Cassivellaunus was a historical British tribal chief who led the defence against Julius Caesar's second expedition to Britain in 54 BC. He led an alliance of tribes against Roman forces, but eventually surrendered after his location was revealed to Julius Caesar by defeated Britons.
Cassivellaunus made an impact on the British consciousness. He appears in British legend as Cassibelanus, one of Geoffrey of Monmouth's kings of Britain, and in the Mabinogion, the Brut y Brenhinedd and the Welsh Triads as Caswallawn, son of Beli Mawr. His name in Common Brittonic, \Cassiuellaunos, comes from Proto-Celtic \kassi- "passion, love, hate" (alternately, "long hair", or "bronze") + *uelna-mon- "leader, sovereign".[1]
Link for photo
Caswallawn's city
Trinovantum:
Now according to Welsh triads Caswallawn awarded certain nobles with titles, including that of Trinovantum (London).
Legend
Cassivellaunus appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth's 12th century work Historia Regum Britanniae (History of the Kings of Britain), usually spelled Cassibelanus or Cassibelaunus.[6] The younger son of the former king Heli, he becomes king of Britain upon the death of his elder brother Lud, whose own sons Androgeus and Tenvantius are not yet of age. In recompense, Androgeus is made Duke of Kent and Trinovantum (London),
See article here for Trinovantum
Crocea Mors:
Now, according to Welsh tradition, Caesar during his first invasion had his sword taken off him, and was made to flee back to Gaul.
Legend
Caesar invades at the Thames Estuary. During the fighting, Cassibelanus's brother Nennius encounters Caesar and sustains a severe head wound. Caesar's sword gets stuck in Nennius's shield, and when the two are separated in the mêlée, Nennius throws away his own sword and attacks the Romans with Caesar's, killing many, including the tribune Labienus.[7] The Britons hold firm, and that night Caesar flees back to Gaul. Cassibelanus's celebrations are muted by Nennius's death from his head wound. He is buried with the sword he took from Caesar, which is named Crocea Mors (Yellow Death).
First invasion:
Now Caesars accounts of his first invasion do indeed point to a failure.
Though, Caesar did claim a certain success from the first invasion, claiming to have subjugated certain parts of the Southern shores and made alliances with Southern kings.
He mentions nothing about having his sword taken off him, however.
Success and motivation
If the invasion was intended as a full-scale campaign, invasion or occupation, it had failed, and if it is seen as a reconnaissance-in-force or a show of strength to deter further British aid to the Gauls, it had fallen short. Nonetheless, going to Britain beyond the "known world" carried such kudos for a Roman that the Senate decreed a supplicatio (thanksgiving) of twenty days when they received Caesar's report. It is also suggested that this invasion established alliances with British kings in the area which smoothed the later invasion of AD 43.[23]

First landing
Second landing:
Typical, to Caesars claim of having made alliances with kings on the Southern shores, his second invasion attempt one year later was met with no resistance at the landing place in Kent.
Crossing and landing
Caesar landed at the place he had identified as the best landing-place the previous year. The Britons did not oppose the landing, apparently, as Caesar states, intimidated by the size of the fleet, but equally this may have been a strategic ploy to give them time to gather their forces, or may reflect their lack of concern.

Second landing
Return to Gaul:
The triads claim during this campaign, Caesar was again quickly put to flight.
Legend
Two years later, Caesar invades again with a larger force. Cassibelanus, forewarned, had planted stakes beneath the waterline of the Thames which gut Caesar's ships, drowning thousands of men. The Romans are once again quickly put to flight.
Roman account:
Caesar got quite far in to British mainland before becoming opposed by Caswallawn, who was also at war with the Southern brits.
And though Caesar claims victory over Caswallawn, he did still decide to withdraw his troops from Britain, back to Gaul, for some unbeknown reason.
March inland first paragraph
Caesar then returned to the Stour crossing and found the Britons had massed their forces there. Cassivellaunus, a warlord from north of the Thames, had previously been at war with most of the British tribes. He had recently overthrown the king of the powerful Trinovantes
March inland fourth paragraph
Cassivellaunus sent word to his allies in Kent, Cingetorix), Carvilius, Taximagulus and Segovax, described as the "four kings of Cantium",[33] to stage a diversionary attack on the Roman beach-head to draw Caesar off, but this attack failed, and Cassivellaunus sent ambassadors to negotiate a surrender. Caesar was eager to return to Gaul for the winter due to growing unrest there, and an agreement was mediated by Commius. Cassivellaunus gave hostages, agreed an annual tribute, and undertook not to make war against Mandubracius or the Trinovantes. Caesar wrote to Cicero on 26 September, confirming the result of the campaign, with hostages but no booty taken, and that his army was about to return to Gaul.[34] He then left, leaving not a single Roman soldier in Britain to enforce his settlement. Whether the tribute was ever paid is unknown.
Charriots:
Caesar was also very complimentary of Caswallawns use of Charriots, which is something the Welsh triads did not mention.
Military
Caesar advanced to the Thames. The only fordable point was defended and fortified with sharp stakes, but the Romans managed to cross it. Cassivellaunus dismissed most of his army and resorted to guerilla tactics, relying on his knowledge of the territory and the speed of his chariots.

Charriot
Meinlas:
Though, in actual fact, Caswallawns charriot likely was mentioned in Triad 38.
His horse was likely Meinlas, and his charriot, slender gray.
Unfortunately, likely mistaken as meaningless poetry.
Welsh literature
Triad 38 names his horse as Meinlas ("Slender Gray") and calls him one of the Three Bestowed Horses of the Island of Britain;[14]
Third invasion attempt:
A sensational claim is made by the Triads.
The triads claim that Caesar actually made a 3rd invasion attempt, and when Caswallawn went to fight them, he was met with an Army of Southerners fighting as Roman allies, and Caswallan was made to surrender to them, and become a vassal to Caesar.
Legend
Caesar invades a third time, landing at Richborough. As Cassibelaunus's army meets Caesar's, Androgeus attacks Cassibelaunus from the rear with five thousand men. His line broken, Cassibelanus retreats to a nearby hilltop. After two days siege, Androgeus appeals to Caesar to offer terms. Cassibelanus agrees to pay tribute of three thousand pounds of silver, and he and Caesar become friends.
Commius:
But this claim is actually supported by Caesar himself.
When Caesar conquered Gaul, turned Commius in to a vassal and sent him to Britain to help gain allies, and Commius did indeed negotiate the surrender of Caswallawn, who would have been taken by surprise by this attack from his fellow brits.
Ally to Caesar
When Julius Caesar conquered the Atrebates in Gaul in 57 BC,[1] as recounted in his Commentarii de Bello Gallico, he appointed Commius as king of the tribe. Before Caesar's first expedition to Britain in 55 BC, Commius was sent as Caesar's envoy to persuade the Britons not to resist him, as Caesar believed he would have influence on the island.[2] However he was arrested as soon as he arrived. When the Britons failed to prevent Caesar from landing, Commius was handed over as part of the negotiations.[3] Commius was able to provide a small detachment of cavalry from his tribe to help Caesar defeat further British attacks.[4] During Caesar's second expedition to Britain Commius negotiated the surrender of the British leader Cassivellaunus.[5]

Julius Caesar
Mysterious ghost invasion:
Now, this third invasion attempt is in fact supported by a mysterious happening which baffles historians and scholars alike.
Caesar apparently chased Commius across the channel, and Commius became marooned on the british shores, like a lamb to the slaughter, but Caesar, instead of attacking, turned around and headed back to Gaul.
Obviously Caesar was simply coming to get Caswallawns surrender.
Enemy of Caesar
A 1st century AD source, Sextus Julius Frontinus's Strategemata, tells how Commius fled to Britain with a group of followers with Caesar in pursuit. When he reached the English Channel the wind was in his favour but the tide was out, leaving the ships stranded on the flats. Commius ordered the sails raised anyway. Caesar, following from a distance, assumed they were afloat and called off the pursuit.[11]
Link for photo
Commius's jewelry
War with Ireland:
There is also a claim that Southern Britains during this period are also at war with Ireland.
Welsh literature
Cassivellaunus appears as Caswallawn, son of Beli Mawr, in the Welsh Triads, the Mabinogion, and the Welsh versions of Geoffrey's Historia Regum Britanniae known as the Brut y Brenhinedd. In the Second Branch of the Mabinogi, he appears as a usurper, who seizes the throne of Britain while the rightful king, Bran the Blessed, is at war in Ireland.
1287 BC:
And even in Irish mythology, during this period, there is indeed a five year interregnum period where for the first time since 1287 BC, Ireland has no high king, for five years.
Milesian
Triad 35:
Triad 35 claims that Caswallawn fought Caesar in gaul.
Welsh literature
Triad 35 indicates that Caswallawn left Britain with 21,000 men in pursuit of Caesar and never returned.[16]
Killed 6000 Romans in Gaul:
Also there was apparently a farther 6000 Romans killed in Gaul.
Welsh literature
.[17] A later collection of triads compiled by the 18th-century Welsh antiquarian Iolo Morganwg gives an expanded version of this tradition, including the details that Caswallawn had abducted Fflur from Caesar in Gaul, killing 6,000 Romans, and that Caesar invaded Britain in response.[18]
Gallic wars:
And in Julius Caesars history, he did indeed fight a war known as the Gallic wars, which Caesar did win, and the war resulted in 1 million deaths.
It was a "huge war".
It would have ended with Commius fleeing back to Britain, and with Caswallawns surrender.
Conquest of Gaul
He proved an astute commander, defeating Caesar at the Battle of Gergovia, but Caesar's elaborate siege-works at the Battle of Alesia finally forced his surrender.[67] Despite scattered outbreaks of warfare the following year,[68] Gaul was effectively conquered. Plutarch claimed that during the Gallic Wars the army had fought against three million men (of whom one million died, and another million were enslaved), subjugated 300 tribes, and destroyed 800 cities.[69]
Link for photo
Caswallawn's surrender
Romantic:
Therefore, Rachel Bromwich's notion that the Welsh triads are romance, are inconsistent with the unromantic realities of war, and contemporary history.
Welsh literature
Welsh scholar Rachel Bromwich suggests the fragmentary allusions to Caswallawn in the Triads relate to a narrative of the character that has been lost.[13] This may have been in the form of a romance detailing the king's adventures, but would have been largely uninfluenced by the classical accounts.

2020.09.24 17:31 street-guru $GOOGL - Morgan Stanley data shows Google still at the top of the e-Commerce funnel, by far

Morgan Stanley:
"Is Google Search Still Top of the E-Commerce Funnel? YES. AlphaWise data show 50%/33% of Americans use Google first when researching items/comparing prices and AMZN Prime members are no different. We raise ad ests, our bottom-up EBITDA shows GOOGL can beat ests even w/ heavy spend and we lay out 3 other keys to '21. OW, PT to $1,800 (30% upside)."
"50% of Americans Use Google First When Researching Products Online...Our AlphaWise survey showcases how Google remains top of funnel within US e-commerce consumer behavior. Key takeaways include: 1) More Americans visit Google first when researching products online than Amazon and Walmart combined (50% vs 32%); 2) One out of every three Americans visit Google first when comparing prices online; 3) Even when consumers know the exact products they want to purchase, nearly one out of every five will still visit Google first. Notably, this is true even among Prime members as 50%/33% of Prime members will still visit Google first when researching products online/comparing prices.
...We See this Consumer Searching Behavior and Strong E-Commerce As Tailwinds to GOOGL's Recovery Through "Shelter-In Holiday": We estimate retail/e-commerce makes up 25-30% of total GOOGL search revenue. These consumer searching trends combined with the strong e-commerce consumer and ad markets we expect through the "shelter-in holiday" (detailed here) cause us to raise our ’21/’22 ad revenue by 1%/1%.
We Sanity Check Our Opex with Bottom-Up Business-Level Modeling, with $2bn of Extra Investment for Margin of Safety...Modeling GOOGL’s $55-60bn annual opex base (ex cost of revenue) is difficult given its investment-first focus and the varied margin profile of each business unit. We lean on our bottom-up business-level GOOGL segment model as one guardrail. As shown, we model an implied continued ~$2bn of “other investment” to allow for a margin of safety to our assumptions and/or GOOGL’s likelihood to invest. Looking at it another way, we model company-wide opex (ex cost of revenue) to grow by roughly $9bn/$9bn in ‘21/’22 vs ~$7bn in ’19.
...As Scaling Revenue Drives our '21/'22 EBITDA up 3%/3%; PT Moves to $1,800, Remain OW, ~30% Upside: Despite this investment, GOOGL’s scaling ~$180bn revenue base drive our ‘21/’22 EBITDA up by 3%/3%. Our PT (based on blend of EV/EBITDA multiple and DCF) rises to $1,800 (~30% upside). We see upward revisions ahead too, as we are 5%/4% ahead of Street ‘21/’22 EBITDA.
3 Other Reasons We Remain Bullish GOOGL into '21: Our $1,800 PT implies ~12x ’22 EBITDA (for 20%/15% '21/'22 EBITDA growth) which is in-line vs. GOOGL’s 3-year median (and vs. ~10x '22 EBITDA currently). We don't think this is a stretch and see three other reasons to remain bullish GOOGL into '21.
1) We believe now-quarterly YouTube revenue disclosure (and expected ~30% growth in ’21/’22) will help investors better understand its improving branded and direct response ad offerings and growth durability;
2) We see the estimated 12% of GOOGL's ad revenue from travel as a unique way for investors to invest in the travel recovery. We currently model travel ad spend to recover in '21 (up ~45%) though note it is still ~40% below '19 levels. The extent to which travel recovers faster could make our estimates conservative and lead to faster GOOGL ad revenue growth;
3) We see continued strong Google Cloud reported growth giving investors more confidence in its revenue and earnings potential into ’22 and beyond, which given the $1tn+ public cloud addressable market should drive multiple expansion.

All advice welcome! Thank you.
Edit: just realised I was shooting in 30fps so tried 60fps, but the delay is even more obvious now.
Edit: okay just guessing that there is some VFR tomfoolery here. So I've changed the command to this:
ffmpeg -y -i clipped-video.mp4 -r 60 -filter_complex "[0:a]aformat=channel_layouts=mono,compand,showwaves=s=160x320:mode=cline:n=1:r=60,format=yuv420p[v]" -map "[v]" waveform.mp4 
To get the waveform framerate and the original video to match in framerate (where as previously, waveform.mp4 would be 54fps for whatever reason)

2020.09.23 14:19 itsgoggles September 23rd Templar Trading Watchlist

$HTBX:
Back in late August, Heat Biologics (HTBX) said preclinical results showed its COVID-19 vaccine candidate, bioRxiv, elicited a "robust immune response" against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The company also found that the vaccine candidate had significantly increased the frequency of systemic and tissue-specific CD8+ T cells, and primes the potent effector memory of these cells localized in the lungs -- essential in protection against respiratory virus infection; all good results.
This stock has been on the decline since late July, where they regained NASDAQ compliance, again more good news for the company. Last week we saw the first signs of trend reversal, hitting a multi-month low of .89c/share, before heading upwards the last two weeks and landing in the $1.30’s. Support building at $1.31, we have seen this previously gap up to $4.30/share. Looking for a swing entry today.

50ma approaching 200ma
$ACHV:
Last Friday, Achieve Life Sciences (ACHV) said that data from the Rauora trial showed that the use of Cytisinicline, or cytisine, for smoking cessation and nicotine addiction, resulted in fewer side effects compared with Chantix, or varenicline. The trial assessed the effectiveness and safety of cytisinicline as a smoking cessation aid in 679 indigenous New Zealanders, compared with varenicline. It was found that subjects who received cytisinicline were on average 55% more likely to quit smoking at about six months versus varenicline. There were also fewer overall adverse events of nausea and vivid dreams in cytisinicline-treated subjects.
Trial results were positive, but the price action had moved so much from investor anticipation of the annual (SRNT-E) digital conference that the good trial results were priced in. Friday we saw the stock fall with the overall market, before finding support levels around $9.14. Previously gapped up to $13 and $26 before that.
Chart wise, on the 180d seen below, you can see the 50 day moving average slowly creeping towards the 200d; bullish indication. Waiting for the 50ma to curl upward more to prove my hypothesis of trend reversal before I buy in.

50ma approaching 200ma
$TRVN:
Trevena, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRVN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of novel medicines for patients with central nervous system (CNS) disorders, today announced three presentations at the virtual 2020 American College of Clinical Pharmacology (ACCP) Annual Meeting, taking place from September 21 st to 23rd, 2020.
The Company will give a live presentation on TRV027, its AT1 receptor selective agonist being studied as a potential treatment for ARDS / abnormal clotting in COVID-19. Additionally, the Company will present two posters highlighting previously published data for OLINVYK, which is approved in the U.S. for the management of acute pain, and TRV250, its delta receptor selective agonist being developed for the acute treatment of migraine.
“I am pleased at this opportunity to present compelling data from three of our programs. The interest from ACCP highlights the diversity of our novel pipeline, with multiple exciting catalysts over the next few months,” said Mark A. Demitrack , M.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Trevena, Inc.
Trevena has been on a hell of a bull run since September 4th, and is already up to $2.91/share from $1.65/share just a couple of weeks ago. That being said, the virtual conference ends today so the hype may begin to die off especially as the presentation comments come out. BUT, chart wise, this stock still looks incredibly bullish. 50 day moving average just crossed the 200d on the 180d graph, and the next gap to fill is $2.86. Looking for a cautious entry this morning.

Primed to run, 50ma overlapping 200ma on 180d chart
$SPI:
(NASDAQ:SPI), a global provider of photovoltaic ("PV") solutions for business, residential, government and utility customers and investors, today announced the launch of EdisonFuture, Inc. , a wholly owned subsidiary of SPI Energy , to design and develop electric vehicles ("EV") and EV charging solutions. Mr. Xiaofeng Peng , Chief Executive Officer of SPI Energy , commented, "This is an important milestone for SPI Energy. As Tesla has demonstrated, an end-to-end business model in the renewable energy space can generate significant value. With the addition of EV and EV charging segments to our diverse solar business, we are positioning SPI Energy for the future of renewable energy."
EdisonFuture is based at Silicon Valley in Santa Clara, California and complements the Company's current suite of PV solutions, including solar and battery storage technologies. EdisonFuture will focus on the design and development of new EV technologies and plans to partner with major manufacturers, as necessary. Sales of EVs topped 2.1 million globally in 2019, surpassing record sales in 2018. EVs, which accounted for 2.6% of global car sales and about 1% of global car stock in 2019, registered a 40% year-on-year increase. The infrastructure for EV charging grew to 7.3 million chargers globally in 2019. Publicly accessible chargers accounted for 12% of global light-duty vehicle chargers in 2019, most of which are slow chargers. Globally, the number of publicly accessible chargers (slow and fast) increased by 60% in 2019 compared with the previous year, higher than the electric light-duty vehicle stock growth. This has already blown up 100% with news, curious to see if the volume holds into the open market. Will most likely watch this one and look to scalp if volume persists throughout the day.

Pumped on news this morning.
Never forget to do your own DD; remember: For all you know, all the stocks that I mention here will dip 90% tomorrow; Do your own DD, I'm not some magic fairy. Trading will never come this easy to you. If all the stocks on here went up, I'd be chilling on my own Island.

Upon getting the error message, I exit Terminal to kill Wine.
The launcher allows me to log into my account, but when the launcher downloads the files necessary to play the game, it doesn't launch. Unity Web Player displays an error message stating that Unity Web Player needs to be updated. It works on Windows correctly, but not in Wine. The game uses a custom version of Unity Web Player 2.x.x.

I get a crash with Win7, and a whitescreen with XP, but not this error. Are you running in a clean WINEPREFIX?
Fabian Maurer 2018-08-26 10:46:17 CDT
Ok, after downloading and installing webplayer from https://unity3d.com/de/webplayer, I get the same error. But this also seems to happen to windows users, can't test on windows right now.

FusionFall Retro uses a custom version of Unity Web Player that is much older than the latest version.

In reply to Fabian Maurer from comment #5) > Confirming. > > How does it behave on windows? When it's using an older version of > webplayer, shouldn't it skip the update? On Windows, the launcher opens the client, which is called Retro.exe and the client proceeds to download the game resources. There is no error message in the client that displays something like this message: "Failed to update - a newer version of Unity Web Player is required, but the AUTO-UPDATE download failed." It was trying to download http://wp-cartoonnetwork.unity3d.com/ff/big/beta-20111013/autodowload_webplugin_beta/UnityPlayerfusion-2.x.x-win32.zip which is no longer available.
Fabian Maurer 2018-08-26 11:54:14 CDT
How do you know it was trying to download that file?
Stellarspace 2018-08-26 11:55:43 CDT
The launcher installs the version of Unity Web Player it needs (via some sort of script) to the PREFIX when a user clicks the PLAY NOW button for the first time. I even reinstalled the custom version of Unity Web Player with the actual installer and it still displays that message. Unity Web Player loads in Retro.exe and displays that information on the screen.
Stellarspace 2018-08-26 11:57:56 CDT
I'm trying to say that on native Windows, it doesn't try to download or install a Unity Web Player update.
Stellarspace 2018-08-26 12:04:17 CDT
(In reply to Fabian Maurer from comment #7) > How do you know it was trying to download that file? I found a post on the forums that indicates that a user on native Windows was getting the same error message. They uninstalled Unity Web Player and installed it again. Maybe a reinstall isn't good enough. It's too bad the launcher automatically installs Unity Web Player. I don't think I can prevent that from happening without developer assistance.
Fabian Maurer 2018-08-26 12:27:06 CDT
Ok, I got it to work. using wine-staging-3.14.
1) Deleted .wine
2) WINEARCH=win32 winetricks -q vcrun2015 vcrun2013 d3dx11_43 d3dcompiler_43 win7
3) wine ULInstaller.exe
4) Start game, get to the error screen, close program
5) Delete "drive_c/users/fabian/AppData/LocalLow/Unity/WebPlayer" and replace it with "drive_c/users/fabian/Application Data/FusionFall Universe/Games/Retro/WebPlayer"
6) Game starts up now It wasn't properly installing the webplayer, now to investigate why. But first, can you confirm the workaround makes the game work?

Yes, the workaround works. I wrote this to do it automatically:
cd ~/.wine32/drive_c/users/$USEAppData/LocalLow/Unity/ & rm -r WebPlayer mkdir -vp WebPlayer && cp -vr ~/.wine32/drive_c/users/$USEApplication\ Data/FusionFall\ Universe/Games/Retro/WebPlaye\ ~/.wine32/drive_c/users/$USEAppData/LocalLow/Unity/WebPlaye*
Is there a reason the avatar spins around and fires without touching the keyboard and mouse?
Zebediah Figura 2018-08-26 15:27:56 CDT
Is this bug a regression in Staging? If not, let's please move it to the Wine project. It would also be good to know what in Staging is necessary for this game to work, and to mark it as a dependency of this bug.

I was using Wine Staging 3.14 because I thought it would fix the issue of not being able to play the game, but it turns out that the launcher doesn't install Unity Web Player correctly. I will build it using Wine 3.14 to see if I can play the game in the Stable version of Wine.

There is no Wine 3.14 Stable in https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/pool/main/ and the client, which is named Retro.exe, crashes in Wine 3.0.2 Stable. It works in 3.14 Staging though, minus the keyboard and mouse issue.
Stellarspace 2018-08-26 16:03:23 CDT
Can we fix the keyboard and mouse issue? The avatar keeps spinning and firing with no keyboard or mouse input. The ENTER key and the Space Bar key work, but W S A D doesn't work.

> Can we fix the keyboard and mouse issue? The avatar keeps spinning and > firing with no keyboard or mouse input. The ENTER key and the Space Bar key > work, but W S A D doesn't work. Can't confirm, works for me. Also, this would be a separate issue. u/Zebediah Moving to Wine product and add dependency on issue fixed by staging patchset.
New approach to getting it to work:
1) Compile 32bit wine with needed staging patchset (kernel32-SetFileCompletionNotificationModes)
2) Install and start game until you get to error screen
3) Copy "player" and "mono" folders from "drive_c/users/fabian/Application Data/FusionFall Universe/Games/Retro/WebPlayer" to "drive_c/users/fabian/AppData/LocalLow/Unity/WebPlaye"
4) Start game again, works now.

Alright.
Stellarspace 2018-08-29 08:42:25 CDT
On Windows, Unity Web Player is installed in the following directory: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\LocalLow\Unity\WebPlayer\
The uninstaller is installed in the following directory: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Unity\WebPlayer\
f Unity Web Player is trying to update, then why not delete the following file: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\LocalLow\Unity\WebPlayer\UnityWebPlayerUpdate.exe
It would no longer try to update, which means it would load normally without moving any files.Comment 20
Stellarspace 2018-08-29 08:58:03 CDT
On Windows, there is no Application Data folder and FusionFall Universe folder is located in the Roaming folder.

Paulette regenerates into a tropical storm, because why not?

As if the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season couldn't get weird enough, an area of low pressure which transitioned from a Category 2 hurricane into a powerful extratropical cyclone on Wednesday, 16 September, drifted northeastward over the open waters of the northern Atlantic, and then dipped far southward over the northeastern Atlantic, has redeveloped into a full-fledged tropical storm to the south of the Azores this morning. The National Hurricane Center welcomed back Paulette at 3:00 AM local time (Azores Summer Time, which is the same as UTC).
Animated infrared imagery has depicted a gradual increase in deep convection over the past several hours near and to the east of the still well-defined low-level center. The development of this convection has strengthened surface-level winds within the cyclone, according to recent scatterometer data, which indicates that the storm is now producing maximum one-minute sustained winds of 50 knots (60 miles per hour)! Scatterometer data also helped to confirm that Paulette is producing these winds within a very small radius from the low-level center, indicating that Paulette has undergone transition into a tropical cyclone, not merely a subtropical cyclone. This is the real deal, folks.
Paulette is currently moving toward the east-northeast along the northwestern periphery of a subtropical ridge centered over the Sahara Desert. The storm is being pushed forward by a deepening mid-latitude trough which has dug southeastward over the northeastern Atlantic over the past couple of days.
Latest data NHC Advisory #40 3:00 AM GMT
Current location: 33.9°N 25.3°W 899 miles (1447 km) NE of Hamilton, Bermuda
Forward motion: ENE (75°) at 14 knots (26 km/h)
Maximum winds: 50 knots (95 km/h)
Intensity: Tropical Storm
Minimum pressure: 1004 millibars (29.65 inches)

Forecast discussion

Last updated: Tuesday, 22 September 2020 - 2:50 AM GMT

Paulette is not expected to undergo any additional strengthening

Paulette has managed to regenerate in an area of the Atlantic which would not ordinarily support the development of a full-fledged tropical cyclone, primarily because the sea-surface temperatures (24 to 25°C) are too cool to support the development of sustained deep convection near the low-level center. However, because the cyclone has maintained a well-defined low-level circulation and because upper-level temperatures have been frigid enough, there has been sufficient atmospheric instability for convection to develop and thrive.
Paulette is not expected to undergo any significant development as it drifts toward the east-northeast over the next couple of days. Sea-surface temperatures are expected to continue to gradually decrease as Paulette approaches the Bay of Biscay and north-northeasterly shear is expected to increase to around 25 to 30 knots. Paulette is expected to remain a tropical cyclone through Thursday afternoon before degenerating into a remnant low and turning sharply toward the southwest as the increasingly shallow cyclone becomes embedded within low-level easterly flow. Unlike Alpha last week, Paulette is not expected to make landfall over mainland Portugal.

2020.09.21 20:00 investing-scientist2 Top 11 stocks to buy now, hand-picked using a consensus strategy. AKAM, DG, LMT, MSFT, MRK, UNH, VRTX, WERN, CHE, ICE, CASY

Top 11 stocks to buy now, hand-picked using a consensus strategy. AKAM, DG, LMT, MSFT, MRK, UNH, VRTX, WERN, CHE, ICE, CASY
Here is a couple of stocks that might be worth your attention this week. This short list was compiled with help of various sources of data, including Buy recommendations from several renowned stock data providers and analytical services. This is why I'm calling the approach a consensus strategy. The stocks I'm going to present you below are generally believed to outperform the stock market in the coming months, they have a consensus recommendation of Buy, their fundamentals are scored considerably better than most stocks and their average target price by stock analysts is above current market valuation.
In order to consider buying the stock's shares, the following criteria need to be satisfied:
  • TheStreet score: A+ or A
  • Zacks Rank: 1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold)
  • Weiss Ratings recommendation: A or B
  • Yahoo Finance recommendation: at least mixed Buy/Hold
  • MarketBeat recommendation: at least mixed Buy/Hold
  • Yahoo Finance target price: min. 5% higher than current price
  • MarketBeat target price: min. 5% higher than current price
  • Piotroski F-Score: min. 4
  • Moody's Daily Credit Risk: 1 to 6
  • InvestorsObserver Overall Score: min. 50
Note: Descriptions of those criteria are provided at the end of this post.
If you decide to buy any of the below stocks, you might want to consider the following selling conditions (at least one of them should be satisfied):
  • price is higher or close to target
  • profit is in range 20% - 30%
  • loss is higher than 50%
  • TheStreet recommendation is changed to Sell
  • Weiss Ratings recommendation is changed to Sell
  • Yahoo Finance recommendation is changed to Sell
Let's now take a look at the stocks I've identified with this strategy today.

Now, a few words on the criteria I'm using and sources of data.

1. TheStreet score

The first filtering step is to get stocks with Buy recommendation at TheStreet stock screener (https://www.thestreet.com/ratings/reports/ir-screener.html). I'm only keeping stocks with A or A+ rating (top ones), although A-, B+, B and B- are Buys as well.
From thestreet.com:
A (Excellent) - The stock has an excellent track record for maximizing performance while minimizing risk, thus delivering the best possible combination of total return on investment and reduced volatility. It has made the most of the recent economic environment to maximize risk-adjusted returns compared to other stocks. While past performance is just an indication -- not a guarantee -- we believe this fund is among the most likely to deliver superior performance relative to risk in the future as well.
And about the methodology (source: https://www.thestreet.com/ratings/reports/detail/T.html):
TheStreet Ratings' stock model projects a stock's total return potential over a 12-month period including both price appreciation and dividends. Our Buy, Hold or Sell ratings designate how we expect these stocks to perform against a general benchmark of the equities market and interest rates. While our model is quantitative, it utilizes both subjective and objective elements. For instance, subjective elements include expected equities market returns, future interest rates, implied industry outlook and forecasted company earnings. Objective elements include volatility of past operating revenues, financial strength, and company cash flows.

2. Zacks Rank

It is required that the Zacks Rank is Hold, Buy or Strong Buy (so we're avoiding stocks with Sell and Strong Sell recommendations). The Zacks Rating utilizes a completely different system, based on company earnings-related data, in particular earnings estimate revisions and earnings surprises, to predict profitability of holding the company's shares. More from [https://www.zacks.com/education/stock-education/zacks-rank-guide-6](http://(average, from experts)):
The Zacks Rank is a proprietary stock-rating model that uses trends in earnings estimate revisions and EPS surprises to classify stocks into five groups:

https://preview.redd.it/zyssjrjbijo51.png?width=480&format=png&auto=webp&s=b9a1543d3e10ca46ca35e20c684fc36da1b71421
A portfolio of Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) stocks has beaten the market in 26 of the last 31 years with an average annual return of +24.3% a year; more than double that of the S&P 500's +10.6% .

3. Weiss Ratings recommendation

We're only keeping stocks with Buy (B) or Strong Buy (A) recommendation.
Wjat are these scores? This is what I found at their website (https://weissratings.com/help/rating-definitions):
"A" Rating: Excellent. The company’s stock has an excellent track record for providing strong performance with lower-than-average risk, and it is trading at a price that represents good value relative to the company’s earnings prospects. While past performance is no guarantee of future results, our opinion is that this stock is among the most likely to deliver superior performance relative to risk in the future. Of course, even the best stocks can decline in a down market. But our “A” rating can generally be considered the equivalent of a "Strong Buy".
"B" rating: Good. The company’s stock has a good track record for delivering a balance of performance and risk. While the risk-adjusted performance of any stock is subject to change, our opinion is that this stock is a good value, with good prospects for outperforming the market. Although even good investments can decline in a down market, our “B” rating is considered the equivalent of a "Buy".

4. Yahoo Finance recommendation and target price

It is required that the Yahoo Finance stock recommendation is at least mixed Buy/Hold from experts. Additionally, the predicted target price (average, from experts) should be at least 5% higher than the current one.

5. MarketBeat recommendation and taget price

Similar to Yahoo Finance, it is required that the MarketBeat stock recommendation is at least mixed Buy/Hold. Additionally, the predicted target price (average, from experts) should be at least 5% higher than the current valuation.

6. Piotroski F-Score

The Piotroski score is a number between 0-9 that reflects nine criteria used to determine the strength of a company's financial situation, including profitability, leverage or operating efficiency. Zero is the worst value and nine is the best. As we can read in Piotroski’s paper from 2000:
In addition, an investment strategy that buys expected winners and shorts expected losers generates a 23% annual return between 1976 and 1996, and the strategy appears to be robust across time and to controls for alternative investment strategies.
It is required that the score is 4 or higher. The values were retrieved from https://www.gurufocus.com.

7. Moody's Daily Credit Risk

Moody’s Daily Credit Risk Score is a 1-10 score, which provides a forward-looking, one-year measure of credit risk. It is updated daily and takes into account day-to-day market movements compared to a company’s liabilities.
The value is retrieved from https://markets.businessinsider.com and is expected to be in the range of 1-6.

8. InvestorsObserver Overall Score

The rank has a value in between 0 and 100. It takes into account both technical analysis and fundamental stock data. An Overall Rank of N means that a given company is rated above N% of stocks, therefore the higher the number, the better. My requirement is that the company has InvestorsObserver Overall score of at least 50.
More detailed explanation from https://www.investorsobserver.com/learning-centewhat-the-scores-mean/what-does-the-overall-score-mean:
The Overall Score combines our two technical scores (Short Term and Long Term) with our Fundamental Score into one metric. This makes our overall score a great place to start when evaluating stocks, regardless of your investing style.
A low score doesn’t necessarily mean a stock is likely to go down, just that our system doesn’t think there’s much of a bullish case for it.
Please note that the company profile data (short description) was taken from https://www.tradingview.com (sometimes I shortened it) and dividend data was retrieved from MarketBeat.

The value is retrieved from https://markets.businessinsider.com and is expected to be in the range of 1-6.

8. InvestorsObserver Overall Score

The rank has a value in between 0 and 100. It takes into account both technical analysis and fundamental stock data. An Overall Rank of N means that a given company is rated above N% of stocks, therefore the higher the number, the better. My requirement is that the company has InvestorsObserver Overall score of at least 50.
More detailed explanation from https://www.investorsobserver.com/learning-centewhat-the-scores-mean/what-does-the-overall-score-mean:
The Overall Score combines our two technical scores (Short Term and Long Term) with our Fundamental Score into one metric. This makes our overall score a great place to start when evaluating stocks, regardless of your investing style.
A low score doesn’t necessarily mean a stock is likely to go down, just that our system doesn’t think there’s much of a bullish case for it.
Please note that the company profile data (short description) was taken from https://www.tradingview.com (sometimes I shortened it) and dividend data was retrieved from MarketBeat.

Dolphin becomes the twelfth named cyclone of the 2020 Pacific typhoon season

Satellite imagery analysis over the past several hours indicates that a tropical depression which developed over the Philippine Sea over the weekend has reached tropical storm strength as its winds increase in response to extratropical transition. Animated infrared imagery depicts an elongated area of deep convection which is slightly offset to the north and east of a partially exposed low-level center due to the presence of strengthening southwesterly shear. The cyclone has begun to interact with a stationary front to the north, as indicated by lines of cold-air stratocumulus which are wrapping into the cyclone's circulation from the northwest.
The Joint Typhoon Warning Center upgraded the depression to a tropical storm on Monday morning based on satellite-based intensity estimates and since then, maximum one-minute sustained winds have increased to 45 knots (85 kilometers per hour). The Japan Meteorological Agency did not upgrade the cyclone until the afternoon, assigning it the name Dolphin, making it the twelfth named cyclone of the 2020 season. Dolphin is moving northward as it moves along the western periphery of a subtropical ridge to the east.
Latest data JTWC Warning #3 12:00 PM JST (03:00 UTC)
Current location: 24.7°N 133.9°E 401 miles (646 km) ESE of Naha, Japan
Forward motion: N (280°) at 6 knots (11 km/h)
Maximum winds: 45 knots (85 km/h)
Intensity (JMA): Tropical Storm
Intensity (SSHS): Tropical Storm
Minimum pressure: 993 millibars (29.32 inches)

Forecast discussion

Last updated: Monday, 21 September 2020 - 2:20 PM JST (00:20 UTC)

Dolphin should only exhibit tropical characteristics for the next day or so

Dolphin is currently moving through a deteriorating environment as its increased entanglement with a stationary boundary to the north begins to develop a baroclinic zone. While sea-surface temperatures remain very warm (30 to 31°C) and the cyclone is situated under upper-level flow that is favorable for its poleward outflow, the cyclone's central convection is becoming increasingly elongated and displaced from the low-level center by increasing southwesterly shear (20 to 25 knots).
As Dolphin continues its extratropical transition, its winds are expected to steadily increase and its tropical storm-force wind field is expected to expand. Model guidance is in tight agreement that Dolphin will continue northward over the next couple of days, reaching a peak intensity of 55 knots (100 kilometers per hour) as the transition completes on Tuesday evening. By Wednesday, Dolphin is expected to gradually turn toward the north-northeast, moving generally parallel to the southern coast of Honshu before moving across the Kii Peninsula later in the week.

2020.09.20 02:05 BarginPrice Working on a Celtic god concept. Art by me

Working on a Celtic god concept. Art by me
I've been thinking about this god concept for a while so let me know what you think. I also haven't added full textures and designs to her silks but they have a leaf pattern. If this gets a lot of attention I'll continue working on the design and maybe one day Una will join the fight. I hope one day to join the Hi-Rez team as a concept artist and 3D modeler but for now I'm a freshmen college student. Hope you enjoy :D
Full coloured Una and a sketch of her back
Name: Una, Queen of the Fae
Pantheon: Celtic
Class: Guardian
Roles: Supp or Solo
Difficulty: Average
Pros- high cc and sustain
Cons-relies on her passive heavily
LORE: There are many stories of the fairy queen never with a single name some call her Titania, others Elphame, to Arthur she was Morgan le Fey, but true believers know she is Una the last high queen of the Sidhe. She is like a beautiful rose, with thorns lurking below. Seductive and dangerous she commands the world of magic and nature to her bidding.
As innocent as she may seem she pays tribute to hell every seven years on Halloween. In one story her tithe Tam Lin was stolen from her by a virgin Janet. Now hell and chaos rises and she must pay tribute to protect her people, this time she will not fail. Surely a god as tithe will satiate those against her...
Passive: Pixie dust
Una gains pixie dust over time. 1 pixie dust per second or 3x for every kill (minion, jg, god) with pixie dust she can upgrade abilities and her auto attacks. Pixie dust may also be used as a currency substituting as 3 gold per dust. She may only hold 100 pixie dust at a time.
Basic attack: shoots slow ball of energy with her wand
Pixie Dust Upgrade: attack becomes a short cone that slows. Consumes 5 pixie dust per attack
Ability 1: Elf Ring (50/55/60/65/70 mana) (20 sec CD)
Titan places spores that sprouts after 3 sec. Healing allies inside it Can be destroyed with three basics. She can only have two Elf Rings up at a time. Heals 4hp +2 per lv + 20% magical power. (Can be affected by rod of asclepius)
Pixie Dust Upgrade: Elf Ring now applies double healing costing 15 pixie dust along with mana.
A third Elf Ring can be placed for 35 pixie dust and mana cost.
Ability 2: Fae portal (60/65/70/75/80 mana) (10/12/14/16/20 sec CD)
Titania creates a portal to the Fairy world in front of her and can aim it. It comes in four colours, each with a different percentage of being cast (canceling the ability does not change the color):
Pink 50% chance- Pixie swarm: A swarm of pixies harass the enemy dealing damage over time 10 dmg+15% of power every .5 sec for 4 sec. Pink Pixie Dust Upgrade: Pixies will now bring back whatever health they took to Titania healing her. Costs 15 pixie dust along with mana.
Green 30% chance- The Great Horse: A great horse, with the wings of an eagle, and a tail like a dragon, hissing loud and spitting fire charges forward and exits through an opposite portal. Any enemy caught in its charge takes 80/90/100/120/150 dmg+ 35% power and will be feared for 1 sec. Green Pixie Dust Upgrade: The Great Horse now fears for 2.5 sec and applies burn to its victims for 5 seconds. (Burn damage 5/9/15/30/40 per sec) Costs 25 pixie dust along with mana
Blue 20% chance- Tuatha Dé Danann: Three Tuatha soldiers are called forth by Titania. Tuatha Health- 200/250/300/320/375. Tuatha attack damage is based on 15+ 50% of Titania’s power. Blue Pixie Dust Upgrade: When Tuatha Soldiers die they turn into a mist that lasts 5 seconds blinding enemy gods for 2 seconds. Costs 35 pixie dust along with mana.
Yellow 10% chance- Finvarra, high king of Fae: Titania opens a golden portal for her spouse Finvarra. He wields a mighty Claymore that slashes at enemies in a semicircle, applying a cripple and slows for 2 sec. Oberon then returns to the Sidhe. Deals 60/100/150/200/275 dmg+120% power
Yellow Pixie Dust Upgrade: Oberon now polymorphs those hit for 1.5 sec and instead spins his claymore in a 360. Costs 45 pixie dust along with mana.
Ability 3: Pixie Dust Upgrade
Una uses her pixie dust to upgrade an ability. Pressing 3 again will cancel the upgrade.
Ultimate: Tithe to Hell (100 mana) (70 sec cooldown)
Titania mounts her white stag and grabs a low, executable god to hell as tithe. If she successfully executes a god her teammates receive additional protections for 10 sec and are healed 10% of their max health. (protections: phys 5/7/9/11/13 & mag 5/9/14/20/25)
Pixie Dust Upgrade: Una does not need to execute an enemy to grant protections and health. Costs 75 pixie dust

2020.09.19 18:27 jamaicanpattys I'm selling a third hand Volcano to a friend of mine and I was hoping to get some thoughts from you guys

I'm selling a third hand Volcano to a friend of mine and I was hoping to get some thoughts from you guys
So just some back ground. I'm a pre med university student who only smokes on Fridays and Saturdays. However, I went through a heavy weed phase my freshman (first) year of university and bought a second hand volcano off craigslist for 275 dollars using the money my mom gave me for books. Needless to say when I moved back home, it didn't take her very long to find it. She took it away from me and told me to go sell it.
I couldn't find any serious buyer so it sat in my garage for 18 months. Anyway, for those two years I smoked joints and bowls and what not off and on until I started getting serious about keeping my lungs in good condition for sports. So I bought the AirVape XS go for like $55 and I thoroughly enjoyed it but it started breaking down for the amount I would use it, so I asked my mom if I could get the Volcano. Because I've been such a good boy she told me where it was and after some scavenging I was able to collect all the pieces.
After the first use I knew it was too much for me. It was like going from a go kart to a Ferrari and I wanted something nice but not so nice that I felt bad not using it enough. It is such a good product and feels like having a very expensive coffee maker when I am not a serious user. However, my neighbor is a big weed fan and loves his PAX. Him and I have been really close since we can't really go out much and he's on the floor above me. He makes bank off of selling weed so I don't think money is super tight for him. I let him have it for the night on Thursday and he was instantly in love. His GF, not so much, she says its clunky and big. I decided to sell it to him and started my price at 275 plus the PAX. Now, I'm not much of a business man but I wanted to high ball him and see what I could do. He admitted that he loved the thing but because it hadn't been used in a long time and was third hand, he didn't want to give up around 350-400 for it.
I was quite baked because of this Volcano so I decided to stop negotiations because I don't want to make decisions while I'm inebriated. I've posted a picture of the volcano for ya'll to see and I can post more but right now I have all of the necessary equipment in a timer safe and can't show the full layout. Three of the bags are old and I opened one of the bags with one still left over I think.
What do you guys think of this situation? How much should I charge? I'm also looking to get a smaller portable vaporizer that is good quality and is electric. I like the german engineering of the Volcano and was looking at their smaller model but it is a little out of my price range. I'm thinking of spending about 150-175 on a good vaporizer. I'm not for fancy things as I have android instead of an IPhone and will always go for practicality over style. Also I'm a first time poster in this community and just joined and am looking forward to sharing my vaping experiences with you guys.

Latest news

Last updated: Friday, 18 September 2020 - 7:20 PM WEST (18:20 UTC)

Alpha becomes the twenty-second named cyclone of the 2020 Atlantic season

Satellite imagery analysis over the past several hours reveals that moderate to deep convection has persisted near the low-level center of an area of low pressure situated over the Bay of Biscay. This low developed several days ago over the northern Atlantic and became cut off from the upper-level jet pattern. Over the past couple of days, the cyclone drifted southward, reaching warmer seas which helped to fuel the development of convection.
While the sea surface over the Bay of Biscay is not warm enough to support the development of a full-fledged tropical cyclone, there exists a sharp enough thermal contrast between the sea surface and the frigid upper-level environment to create convection. Animated infrared imagery indicates that the cyclone remains embedded within a larger extratropical cyclonic gyre which is drifting eastward toward Europe. Upper-level wind analysis and water vapor imagery depict robust poleward outflow.
Intensity estimates derived from satellite imagery analysis and recent scatterometer data reveal that the cyclone is producing maximum one-minute sustained winds of 45 knots (85 kilometers per hour). The cyclone is currently moving rather quickly toward the northeast as it remains embedded within the larger extratropical cyclone and is nearing the coast of Portugal.

Alpha breaks yet another Atlantic record

The National Hurricane Center has initiated advisories for this cyclone and has assigned it the name Alpha. This is only the second time that the National Hurricane Center has needed to use the Greek alphabet during a season and even then, Alpha formed well before the last time the name was used, which was 22 October 2005.
Latest data NHC Special Advisory #1 7:00 PM WEST (18:00 UTC)
Current location: 39.9°N 9.3°W 51 miles (82 km) NNE of Coimbra, Portugal
Forward motion: NE (35°) at 15 knots (28 km/h)
Maximum winds: 45 knots (85 km/h)
Intensity: Subtropical Storm
Minimum pressure: 999 millibars (29.50 inches)

Forecast discussion

Last updated: Friday, 18 September 2020 - 7:20 PM WEST (18:20 UTC)

Alpha is expected to weaken almost immediately after making landfall this evening

Alpha is very close to making landfall along the coast of Portugal and is expected to do so later this evening. The cyclone is expected to move quickly over the Iberian Peninsula over the next couple of days, weakening and transitioning into a remnant low as the cyclone becomes cut off from the ocean and suffers increased frictional effects from prolonged land interaction. Alpha is expected to degenerate into a remnant low fairly quickly following landfall and dissipate over Spain on early Sunday morning.

After upgrade and optimization, Intel’s 10th gen i7-10750H has a better clock rate than the previous i7-9750H. When comparing the two, you can see that the i7-10750H performs a little bit better. This, plus the fact that AORUS 5’s cooling system performs well, That made CPU tends to be graded higher – a rare advantage around affordable models.

The SX8200 PRO 512G comes with a high reading speed of up to 3500MB/s and a writing speed of up to 2300MB/s, Even though AORUS 5 is meant to be an affordable laptop, it comes with M.2 PCIe3.0, a fast SSD model on the market. However, since a laptop has more power-saving technologies built in that cannot be manually turned off, it’s hard to reach the highest bandwidth in the original specifications. In comparison, higher level SSDs still perform better even after discounting for the laptop.

Although the RTX 2060 is higher-level product and comes with ray tracing as well as DLSS technology, it’s not commonly used for gaming. Basically, there isn’t a huge gap between the performances of the GTX 1660 Ti and the RTX 2060 in most 3D games. After a few tests, we can see solid performance by the GTX 1660 Ti at 1080P resolution in-game. If the laptop model you want to buy together with a GTX 1660 Ti differs too much in price from the RTX 2060, The GTX 1660 Ti is a good choice for a mid-range graphics card that combines 3D performance and affordability.
Now dissemble D side to have a look at the internal layout. There are 12 screws in the back, with 4 screws in the battery area. Self-disassembly might affect your warranty, so if you want to upgrade your hardware you should send it to the original factory. It comes with the latest WINDFORCE cooling technology: 2 of 47-blade fans with four heat pipes elevate the total cooling efficiency to 150W. The 4 sets of outlet vents on the two sides and the back of C side, with large intake vents above the keyboard and on the back.

Processed the i7-10750H extreme cooling test at a room temperature of 31 degrees: While running LinX 0.7.1 at full speed, the temperature was 70~79˚C, with a maximum sudden peak at 100˚C.
https://preview.redd.it/weoap3s9oqn51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=b032e4358f33abfd4cc459488c4fda20e501cdb4
AORUS 5 has good cooling capacity, so we’re using LinX, an Intel platform with a heavy load in burn-ins. During burn-ins, the i7-10750H mostly stays at a clock rate of 4.2G when display showed under 50W. If the power’s increased up to 55~68W, the clock would usually be at 2.99G. Fan speed is at 2200rpm while idling and 4800rpm when CPU is at full speed. In most circumstances, the CPU usage would be lower than those above, with correspondingly low temperature and fan speed.
Furmark is mainly for extreme burn-in tests for the GPU GTX 1660Ti: GPU 1485MHz / MEME 6000MHz, Running FurMark gets us a 46˚C while idling and 82˚C at full speed.
https://preview.redd.it/1522yaxcoqn51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=6a3ea74ed2010d37e9b25c8ef7af3cb1939100f8
Since it’s summer with around a 10˚C increase in room temperature, there’s a corresponding increase in temperature recorded in burn-in tests. During burn-ins with FurMark, the upper area of the keyboard is around 38~45˚C, the left and right hand side vents at 38~48˚C. Back vents at 34~55˚C, D side vents at 32~43˚C, with vents on the right-hand side of the back having slightly higher temperatures. Equipped with the latest WINDFORCE cooling system, it’s satisfactory with regards to both CPU and GPU cooling. You will not hear much noise during low-loading situations like idling, doing office work or web surfing, fan speed was low. During high-loading situations like gaming, the fan speed goes up, but the noise is around mid- to low-frequency and doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable with overall noise.
As for battery life, we set our battery option to “balanced” in the Windows 10 power settings, with battery options set to “power-saving”: To simulate a practical and power-intensive situation, we play videos on YouTube at 1080P with screen brightness of 20%. After an hour, battery is at 78%, 55% after 2 hours, 42% after 3 and 9% after 4. We estimate that with automatic shutdown at 5%, the battery lasts to 4 hours and 8 minutes – It’s acceptable battery life performance.

To summarize the AORUS 5 SB(i7-10750H/GTX 1660Ti 6G) Features and advantages: 1.A rare Made-in-Taiwan laptop, with many parts from big brand or high-level manufacturers. 2.The WINDFORCE cooling system provides excellent cooling for both CPU and GPU. 3.The webcam got high quality compared to other laptops I have seen in the last couple of years. 4.Unique detachable battery with a small adaptor, which increases portability. 5.Keyboard keys with all-zone RGB backlight with 15 colors and a precise touchpad. 6.Uses SAMSUNG DDR4 2666 DRAM, a high level and more compatible RAM. 7.AORUS Gaming Center software and the Nahimic 3D audio software were both good. 8.Specifications that are good for gaming, with 144Hz refresh rate, 72% NTSC color gamut and ultra-thin bezels on three sides. 9.Relatively exceptional audio quality in the mid-level or affordable laptop market. 10.When combined with GTX 1660Ti graphics card, can output on three screens at once, with 1+3 displays simultaneously at maximum.
Parts of improvements in the future: 1.A side’s smooth surface makes fingerprints more obvious. Overall quality could enhanced if anti-glare texture is used on the two sides of C side. 2.Internal components are from reputable brands, so the laptop comes at a slightly higher price compared to competitors of the same level. 3.Battery capacity is a bit smaller, would prefer the battery life more than 5 hours. 4.Intel 10th gen’s DDR4 2666 and 2933 differ very little in bandwidth, but 2933 is better for maximum clock rate.

This article’s new AORUS 5 models all come with an Intel Core i7-10750H, but recommended a version that uses dual AMD platform in the future. The three models differ in their levels of GPU, with GTX 1650Ti, GTX 1660Ti and RX 2060 respectively. Compared to other brands of gaming laptops on the market with i7-10750H and GTX 1660Ti, AORUS 5 is a little bit pricier. Since it used better components such as 144Hz & NTSC 72% display, Samsung DDR4 dual channel RAM, and Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 wireless chipset, its more costly in comparison. The low-key design of A side is a minus, I hope GIGABYTE can upgraded it to a non-smooth surface in the future to raise its overall appeal. In all other respects, AORUS 5 was above the level in its price range and uses higher-tier component parts. Excellent cooling capacity, webcam with high resolution and good speaker quality – it’s pretty much an affordable laptop with well-rounded overall performance.
Above is the analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of AORUS 5.
