2020.07.15 10:02 Joltie Football Manager 2020 Youth Intake Interval Dates for Top Division Clubs per country

Searching for the Youth Intake dates in FM2020 gets nothing but the usual lazy "It's randomized" without any further elaboration, so I decided to take it upon myself to see the interval dates from which clubs of most important countries actually have youth intake days, so if someone other than me is interested, they'll know when to start looking.
Keep in mind that this is solely based on a single 6-European & 2 S.American League 2033 save game file that I'm using, so I cannot guarantee 100% certainty.
Some caveats that I've seen:
  1. If the nation has no selected leagues in your game, and doesn't have a significant influence in your game's player database, usually most 1st Division teams of that country will have their youth intakes within 3 days of the Youth Intake Date Start. However, if your game has a country's leagues, it can take up to 4 weeks for all the top division clubs to have their Youth Intake Days. Lower division clubs (or rather clubs with poorer youth infrastructure, more on that below) begin their Youth Intake Days roughly around the same date that the Top Division ones finish and it progresses downwards into the amateur levels, depending on how many leagues you have of that country.
  2. What I noticed is that the order by the teams have their Youth Intake Day follows how good their Youth Recruitment is compared to other clubs in that country from the leagues you have running on the game, so in truth in a country where you have a large database for your game, if a lower division club has outstanding youth infrastructure, it may very well be among those to get a Youth Intake in the first few days. Case in point: Belenenses, which is in the third Portuguese tier, got its youth intake in the second day, after the best academies in Portugal (Benfica, Sporting, Porto, and a couple others)

Yearly Youth Intake Earliest Date Start Countries

17/1 Uruguay
5/2 Norway
23/2 Russia
27/2 Mexico
3/3 Austria
5/3 Serbia

9/3 Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Poland, Switzerland, Turkey
14/3 England, N. Ireland, Scotland, Wales
16/3 Ukraine
18/3 Slovakia
19/3 Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia,
26/3 Holland
29/3 Spain
3/4 India, South Africa
8/4 Albania, Algeria, Andorra, Angola, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belize, Bermuda, Bosnia, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Cayman Islands, Chad, Costa Rica, Curaçao, Dominica, DR Congo, Egypt, Gabon, Gibraltar, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kenya, Kosovo, Lebanon, Libya, Luxembourg, Malta, Martinique, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mayotte, Montenegro, Montserrat, Morocco, Namibia, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Niger, North Macedonia, Oman, Palestine, Panama, Qatar, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Somalia, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Martin, Syria, Tahiti, Tanzania, Togo, Trinidad & Tobago, Tunisia, Uganda, US Virgin Is., Yemen, Zanzibar
20/4 Hong Kong
1/8 or 2/8 Malaysia
14/8 Iceland
18/8 or 19/8 Finland
3/9 Sweden
14/9 Australia, China
15/9 South Korea
21/9 Afghanistan, Barbados, Benin, Bolivia, Brazil, British Virgin Is., Brunei, Canada, CAR, Chinese Taipei, Comoros, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Faroe Islands, Fiji, French Guyana, Georgia, Ghana, Grenada, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Liberia, Macau, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Moldova, Mozambique, New Caledonia, Nigeria, North Korea, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Sao Tome & Principe, Sri Lanka, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Sudan, The Gambia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Vietnam, Zambia, Zimbabwe
30/9 Chile
8/11 Argentina
So if on a certain year, by that specific day, there is no youth intake in that country, the next day some club should have a youth intake day, otherwise it is unlikely that there will be a club in that country doing a Youth intake day.
So now every time that the date is rolling over, keep an eye out for the Youth Intake screen of those countries and now you have more tools to attempt to poach fantastic players while they are young.

2020.06.22 13:44 LordVelaryon That day, that goal, that prodigy.

Less than eleven seconds earlier, when the Argentinian player receives the pass from a teammate, the clock in Mexico marks thirteen hours, twelve minutes and twenty seconds. In the opening scene there are also two Brits and a slightly older man of Tunisian origin. Football isn't very popular in Tunisia. That's why the African seems to be the only one who is not in an athletic mental alertness
The Tunisian is called Ali Bin Nasser and, while others run, he walks slowly. He is forty-two years old and ashamed: he knows that he will never be called again to referee an official match between nations. He also knows that if twelve years earlier, when he was injured in the Tunisian league, he had been told that he would be in a World Cup, he would not have believed it. Nor would he have believed it the afternoon he became a referee. After all, in Tunisia you only need to have the same number of legs as lungs to get the job.
But when he officiated his first match, he discovered that he would be a proper referee. And it was more than that: he managed to become the first football referee to be recognised on the streets of his city. He was called up for the 1984 African qualifiers and his judgment proved to be so good that a year later he was called up to command in a World Cup.
In Mexico he was asked for autographs, had pictures taken with him and slept in the most luxurious hotel. He had successfully refereed the Poland-Portugal match in the group stage, and watched the left half in a Denmark-Spain match where the Danes played the whole second half with a high-line; he didn't make a single mistake when he raised his flag.
When the organisers informed him that he would be directing a quarterfinal - no Tunisian judge had ever come this far - Ali called home from the hotel, with reverse charge, told it to his father and both cried.
That night he slept through hot flashes and had two dreams of ridicule. In the first dream he twisted his ankle and had to be replaced by the fourth referee; in the dream, the fourth referee was his mother. In the second dream a fan jumped onto the field, pulled down his pants and he was left with his genitals hanging out in front of the world's televisions.
From each dream he woke up with his heart beating. But he never dreamed, during the eve, of validating a goal scored with a hand. He did not dream that, in Tunisian street slang, his name would become an humorous metaphor for blindness. That's why he's now refereeing the second half of that match with a desire to see it end soon.
Now the Argentinian player touches the ball with his left foot and moves it half a metre out of the shadows. The heat is over 30 degrees and that spider-shaped shade is the only one in many meters around.
Around the field, one hundred and fifteen thousand people follow the player's movements but only two, those closest to the scene, can prevent his advance.
Their names are Peter: Raid one, Beardsley the other. Both were born in the north of England, one in the riverbed and the other at the mouth of the River Tyne; they both had, a few years earlier, a son whom they named Peter; they both divorced their first wife before travelling to Mexico; and they are both convinced, at the thirteen hours, twelve minutes and twenty-one seconds, that it will be easy to take the ball away from the Argentinian player because he received it with his weak foot and there are two of them: one at his front and the other at his back.
They don't know that, a decade later, Peter Raid Jr. and Peter Beardsley Jr. will be friends, they will be fifteen and sixteen years old and they will be dancing at a London rave.
A Scotsman named O'Connor - who will later become a screenwriter for comedian Sacha Baron Cohen - will recognize them and, in the middle of the dance, will dodge them with a feint and a dribble. He will do it once, twice, three times, imitating the dance move that now, ten years before, the Argentine player practices on his parents.
Raid Jr. and Beardsley Jr. will not get the joke, so other rave participants will join O'Connor's mockery and a loop of dancers will form, in the form of a human train, dodging the boys in two stages. Peter Raid Jr. will be the first to understand the taunt, and will tell his friend, "It's because of our parents' video, the one from Mexico 86".
Peter Beardsley Jr. will make a gesture of humiliation and the two friends will escape from the party, chased by dozens of boys who will shout, in chorus, the name of the player who ten years ago, right now, is running away from his parents with a move of his waist.
Soon Raid Sr. and Beardsley Sr. will stop chasing the player: it will be the job of other teammates to try to stop him. They now remain frozen in the middle of a tape that time turns, in slow motion, from VHS to Youtube.
Now their children are five and six years old and will not remember seeing the player's dribble directly, but in their early teens they will see it a thousand times on video and will no longer have any respect for their parents.
Peter Raid and Peter Beardsley, still in midfield, don't know what exactly has happened in their lives to make it all fall apart.
Quickly and with short steps, the Argentinian player moves the scene to the opposite side of the pitch. He has only touched the ball three times in his own field: once to receive it and outwit the first Peter, the second to step on it gently and outflank the second Peter, and a third to push the ball away towards the dividing line.
When the ball crosses the chalk line, the player has covered ten of the fifty-two meters he will walk and has taken eleven of the forty-four steps he will have to take.
At thirteen hours, twelve minutes and twenty-three seconds of midday shouts of astonishment come down from the stands and the asses of the radio announcers come off the seats in the transmission cabins: the free space that the player has just found on the right side, after the double dribble and his stride, makes everybody understand the danger.
Everybody except Kenny Sansom, who appears behind the two Peter's and chases the player with a parsimony that seems to be from another sport. Sansom accompanies the Argentinian player without despair, as if he was taking a young son for his first bike ride.
"You looked like if you were playing in training, for fucks sake," manager Bobby Robson tells him two hours later in the dressing room. "That wasn't you," his half-brother Allan will tell him a year later, both drunk, in a pub in Dublin.
Kenny Sansom will rewind the video a thousand times in the future. He'll see his lazy step, almost a trot, as the player slips away.
He will start, in November of that year, to have problems with gambling and alcohol. In the tabloids he will be nicknamed "White" Sansom because of his fondness for white wine.
His only friend from the golden age will be Terry Butcher, perhaps because both will share the same traumatic experience.
Butcher is the one who now, when the radio reporters and spectators in the stands are still standing, throws a failed tackle at the player advancing on his sideline. Butcher will chase the player madly and throw a second kick, this time with a murderous intent, in the apex of the small box.
Terry Butcher will also never overcome the ghost of those ten seconds at the Mexican midday. "He only dribbled the rest of my teammates once, but he dribbled me twice, the little bastard," he will tell the press many years later, with his eyes glazed over.
Kenny Sansom and Terry Butcher will never return to Mexico, not even to the tourist beaches far from Mexico City. In the future, without children or stable partners, they will have as a hobby (at almost sixty years old each) to get together to drink whisky on Thursday nights and invent new insults against the Argentinian player who now, unmarked, enters the big box with the ball stuck to his feet.
Before the start of the play, a man gives a bad pass. With that mistake, the story begins. He could have played backwards or to his right, but he decides to send the ball to the player who is less free. That man is called Hector Enrique and he stays motionless after the pass, with his hands on his waist. After that game he will never be able to separate from the player, as if an invisible string from that vertical pass was transformed, over time, into a magnetic field.
Enrique doesn't know it yet, but he will take part in a World Cup again, 24 years later and on African soil. He will be part of the coaching staff of a manager who, fatter and older, will have the same face as the young man who now runs in a zigzag. And he will end his career even further, in the United Arab Emirates, back on the right side of the player who, two seconds ago, was given a pass to the wrong foot.
For many nights in the future, in a strange country where women have to sit in the back seat of cars, Enrique will wonder what would have happened if, instead of that bad delivery, he had given the ball to Jorge Burruchaga, his second choice.
Burruchaga is the one who now runs parallel to the player through the midfield. It's the thirteen hours, twelve minutes and twenty-four seconds and he's convinced that the player will give him the pass before entering the box, that he's just taking the defenders away to leave him alone in front of the three posts.
Burruchaga runs and looks at the player; with a body gesture he tells him "I'm free in the middle" and while he waits for the pass in vain he doesn't know that one day, some years later, he will accept a bribe in the French league and will be punished by the International Federation. Another misplaced delivery. But he, frozen in the present, still runs and waits for the pass that never comes.
Days later he will score the decisive goal of the final, but the world will only have eyes and memory for another goal. Year after year, tribute after tribute, his will not be the one most admired.
One night, Burruchaga will call to Saudi Arabia to talk with his friend Hector Enrique, and he will lament, a little jokingly, a little seriously, that goal scored by someone else that overshadowed the decisive goal of the final. Then Enrique will see a sandstorm out the window and, without intending to, will make him smile. "That goal wasn't so great," he'll say, "I gave him the pass, if he didn't scored it, it was to kill him".
Inside the pitch the wind is blowing at 12 kilometers per hour. If it had been blowing at 60 kilometers per hour, as it did in Mexico City six days later, the play might have not ended well.
The advance seems fast by an optical illusion, but the player regulates the rhythm, slows down and deceives. There is a secret geometry to the precision of that zigzag, a rigour that would have been broken by a change in the wind or the reflection of a wristwatch from the stands.
Terry Fenwick thinks about the variables of randomness as he showers crestfallen after defeat. Especially in one, the least far-fetched.
Before the game, Fenwick advised his manager Bobby Robson that it would be best to give the opposing player a man-to-man marking. Bobby responded that the marking would be zonal, as in previous games.
What would have happened if Robson had listened to him? asks himself Terry Fenwick, naked in the solitude of the dressing room, with water hitting his temples.
Right now, at thirteen hours, twelve minutes and twenty-six seconds of midday, he sees the player arrive with the ball dominated; he thinks he's going to pass it into the centre of the box. Fenwick thinks the same as Burruchaga, he leans his whole body on his right leg to avoid the pass and leaves the left flank unlocked. The player, with a small jump, enters then through the free space, steps on the box and finds the three posts.
"Fuck", Terry Fenwick told the press in 1989, "he ruined my career in four seconds". Two years after the outburst, in 1991, Fenwick will spend four months in prison for drunk driving. He will say, by the middle of the next decade, that he would not shake hands with the Argentinian player if he saw him again.
At the same period, one of his daughters will turn eighteen. During the party, Terry Fenwick will find her kissing an Argentinian on a beach in Trinidad. He will recognize the boy's identity because of a blue and white jersey with the number ten on the back. Fenwick does not know it yet, but in his old age he will be coaching an unknown team called "San Juan Jabloteh" in Trinidad and Tobago, a country that played only one World Cup, but has beaches.
Fenwick will get drunk every day on the sand of those beaches. On the afternoon of his daughter's meeting with the Argentinian, he'll want to get close to the boy and beat him. The Argentinian will make a gesture to go out to the left and then escape to the right. Fenwick, again, will eat the feint.
Eight steps, out of forty-four, will give the player inside the box, and they will be enough to understand that the scenario is not auspicious.
There is one opponent breathing at his neck on his right, Terry Butcher; another on his left, Glenn Hoddle, prevents him from giving the ball to Burruchaga; Fenwick has recovered from the feint and now covers the possible pass backwards, and at the front, goalkeeper Peter Shilton closes into him from the near post.
The north, south and east are closed to any manoeuvres. It is now thirteen hours, twelve minutes and twenty-seven seconds. Three more hours in Buenos Aires. Six more hours in London.
In any city in the world, at any time of the day or night, trying to get a shot on goal in the middle of that mess of legs is impossible, and the one who knows it best is Jorge Valdano, who arrives alone, very alone, on the left.
No one notices Valdano's existence, neither now in the box nor during primary school, in Santa Fe's town of Las Parejas.
Jorge Valdano sat reading novels by Emilio Salgari while his classmates played football during breaks, swirling around behind the ball. Football seemed like a basic game to him at the age of nine, but something happened to him at eleven: he understood the rules and knew, without surprise, that the other kids didn't practice it with intelligence.
He began to play with them and, while the rest chased the ball without strategy, he moved around the sidelines looking for the geometry of the sport.
And he was good. He played for two clubs in the town and was soon called from Rosario to play for Newell's youth teams; he made his debut in the Argentinian first division before he was eighteen. At twenty he was a world-youth champion in Toulon. At twenty-two he had already played for the senior national team.
But in those dizzying years he never loved the sport above all. If he was given a choice between a game among friends or a good novel, he always chose the book.
Until that moment in his thirties, Valdano was not sure he had chosen his true vocation. That's why now, as he waits for the pass, he finally feels that this could be his destiny, that perhaps he has come into the world to touch that ball and place it in the net.
He knows that the player's only option is to pass to the left. He has no other choice. As he steps into the box he thinks: "If he doesn't give it to me, I'll leave everything and become a writer."
But the player enters the box without looking at him. Neither Butcher, Fenwick, Hoddle nor Shilton are aware of him. Not even the cameraman, who follows the play with zoom, can pick him out in time. In the video, Valdano is a ghost who only shows his full body when the ball is in the apex of the small box. Jorge Valdano does not know it yet, but at the end of that tournament he will start writing short stories.
There is no greater enemy for an striker than the goalkeeper. The rest of the rivals can use the sneaky tackle or the knees for the thigh blow. It doesn't matter, they are legal weapons in a man's sport and the attacked can return the action on the next play.
But the goalkeeper, the guardian, the goalie, the keeper (like Lucifer's, their names are endless) can touch the ball with his hands.
The goalkeeper is an anomaly, an exception capable of undoing with his hands the best acrobatics that other men do with their feet. And until that day no outfield player had ever managed to repay that affront at a World Cup.
So now, when the player steps into the box and looks into the eyes of goalkeeper Peter Shilton (grey shirt, white gloves) he understands the hate in the Englishman's eyes.
Half an hour earlier, the Argentinian had avenged every attacker in the history of football: he had scored a goal with his hand. The strikers's palm had arrived before the goalkeeper's fist. In the rules of football this action is forbidden, but in the rules of another game, more inhumane than football, justice had been done.
That is why, at this crucial moment in history, at thirteen hours, twelve minutes and twenty-nine seconds, Peter Shilton knows he can get revenge. He knows full well that it is in his hands to disrupt the greatest goal of all times. He needs to do it, moreover, to return to his country as a hero.
Shilton was born in Leicester, 36 years before that Mexican midday. Already a living legend, he didn't need to make it to his first and last World Cup to prove it.
He doesn't know it yet, but he'll be playing professionally until he's forty-eight. In the future, he will play the leading role in many unforgettable saves which, added to those of the past, will make him the greatest English goalkeeper.
However (and he doesn't know this either) in the future there will be an encyclopedia, more famous than the Britannica, that will say about him: "Shilton, Peter: English goalkeeper who received, on the same day, the goals known as 'the hand of God' and 'of the century'.
That will be his karma and it's better that he doesn't know it, because he's still looking into the eyes of the approaching Argentinian player and he's covering his left post like his teachers taught him. He believes Terry Butcher can make it in time with the final tackle. "Maybe this will end in a corner," he thinks. "Maybe I can reach the ball with my fingertips."
Nor does he know that two years later a video game with his name will be released in Great Britain, entitled "Peter Shilton's Handball", or that his children will play it, in secret, during the 1992 holiday season.
It is better that he does not know the future now, because he must decide, right now, what the next move of the player will be. And he decides: Shilton plays to the left, throws himself to the ground and waits for the left-footed shot across. The Argentinian, who does know the future, chooses to play to the right.
Before touching the ball with his left foot for the last time, at the thirteen hours, twelve minutes and thirty seconds of the Mexican midday, the Argentinian player sees that he has left Peter Shilton behind; sees that Jorge Valdano is dragging Terry Fenwick; sees that Peter Raid, Peter Beardsley and Glenn Hoddle have been left on the road; sees Terry Butcher who throws himself at his feet with his boots spiked; sees Jorge Burruchaga who slows down his career with resignation; sees Hector Enrique, still stuck in the middle of the field, who makes a fist with his right hand; He sees his manager jumping off the bench as if he'd been sent off by a rocket and the other manager, the rival, looking down so as not to see the end of his advance; he sees a redheaded man with a smoking pipe on the first row of the stands; He sees the line of chalk on the opponent's goal and remembers the face of the worker who, during half-time, went over it with a roller; he clearly sees his brother the Turk who, aged seven, throws in his face a mistake he made at Wembley in a similar move; he sees his brother's lips full of caramel when he says:
"Next time, don't shoot it across, you little fool, you'd better do feint to the goalie and go right."
He sees his brother's face with the light of the kitchen where the scene took place, he sees the mischief with which he was looking at him; he sees, behind the goal, a sign that says Seiko in white letters on a blue background; he sees the green painted nails of his first girlfriend, the day he met her, and he sees that same girl, now a woman, breastfeeding a child; he sees a deflated ball and he sees himself, at the age of nine, trying to dominate it; he sees his mother and father dragging, with effort, a huge kerosene can along a dirt road where it has rained; he sees a box in a locker room in La Paternal, which bears his name and surname in bright letters, he sees his adolescent pride when he first reads his name and surname at his locker; he sees a stadium, its wooden boards, and he also sees that one day the whole stadium, and not just the locker, will bear his name.
The Argentinian player has controlled the air in his lungs for nine seconds, and now he is about to release all the air in one breath.
Unlike all the opponents and teammates he has left behind, he can breathe with his left leg, and can also sense the future as he moves forward with the ball at his feet.
He sees, ahead of time, that Shilton will throw himself to the right; he sees Terry Butcher's murderous intention behind him, he sees himself, many years later, with a grandson in his arms, visiting the entrance of the Azteca Stadium where a bronze statue with no name stands: just a young player with a proud chest, a ball at his feet and a date engraved on the base: June 22, 1986; he sees a rave in London where two fifteen-year-old boys escape from a mocking crowd; he sees a shady apartment where there is only one table, two friends and a mirror on the table; he sees a girl on a tropical beach who lets herself be kissed by a boy wearing an Argentina shirt; He sees a swarm of journalists and photographers outside every airport, every terminal, every stadium and every shopping mall in the world; he sees a boy playing a video game in the city of Leicester while his brother watches through the window to make sure his father doesn't show up; he sees the body of an old man who died in Switzerland eight days before that midday, a man who also saw all the things in the world in a single moment.
He sees Fiorito at day; he sees Napoli at afternoon; he sees Barcelona at night.
He sees Boca's stadium about to burst and he's in the middle of the pitch but he doesn't have a ball on his feet but a microphone in his hand; he sees an old man at Carthage's airport, waiting for his son on the last flight from Mexico, to hug and comfort him; he sees a swollen ankle; he sees a Red Cross nurse, chubby and smiling; he sees all the goals he's scored and the ones he'll score; he sees all the goals he's shouted and the ones he'll shout; he sees himself, at fifty-three years old, watching from a balcony the world's final at the Maracaná; he sees the day when he will see his mother for the last time; he sees the night when he will see his father for the last time; he sees all his children's children grow up; he sees the pains of a woman who is about to give birth to a left-footed child in Rosario, one year and two days later than that Mexican midday; he sees a minimal, impossible, unreachable space between the right post and Terry Butcher's boot.
He closes his eyes. He lets himself fall forward, with his body bowed, and the whole world becomes silent.
The player knows that he has taken forty-four steps and twelve touches, all with his left foot. He knows the move will take ten seconds and six decimals. Then he thinks it is time to explain to everyone who he is, who he has been and who he will be until the end of time.

2019.06.24 18:03 packmanwiscy [OC] Who would have qualified for the 2004 Olympic Mens Golf Event?

This week marks the halfway point of the 2020 Olympic Qualifying. The IOC will use the Official World Golf Rankings on June 22nd, 2020 to determine the 60 man field to compete in Tokyo, and as the OWGR covers a two year timespan, that makes this week the unofficial halfway mark. I wondered to myself “it’s a darn shame that peak Tiger couldn’t play in the Olympics, that would have been cool to watch”. And that got me thinking: What would the Olympic field have looked like in past years?
So that’s where this post began. My original goal was to use the OWGR past rankings archive and use the same criteria of how the current field is set up to extrapolate who theoretically would have qualified in 2012, 2008, etc. if the current Olympic qualifying system was used. But I quickly ran into a problem: the archives are incomplete. OWGR.com only archives the Top 300 every week, and only the Top 200 prior to November 2007, which is too low to strum up a full Olympic field of 60 players. For example, the last member of the 2016 Olympic field would have been ranked 320th if all who normally qualified played. So while I could have drummed up a field of 50+ people for 2012 and 2008, it still would have been an incomplete list.
However, the OWGR website isn’t the only place that has an archive of the World Golf Rankings. The Wayback Machine is a wonderful resource to play around with, but it relies on people in the past to have the foresight to “capture” the website onto it. If someone wasn’t around to link it back to the Wayback Machine, then it’s lost to history. Like, we’ll never know what ESPN.com looked like on May 5th, 2002 because nobody captured the website on that date, for example. For smaller websites like OWGR.com, captures are few and far between, especially outside the last 10 years, so I really wasn’t expecting much when I went to the Wayback Machine and plugged it in. But to my surprise, some glorious, wonderful individual on June 27th, 2004 decided to archive almost the entire World Golf Rankings from that date. From this, I was able to parse together the last 20 spots that I couldn’t find from the past records section of OWGR.com
This list follows the same rules of the current Olympic qualifying rules. Everyone from the Top 15 gets in, with a limit of 4 golfers per country. The remaining spots go to the highest ranked golfers from countries who do not already have two golfers qualified. So each country has a maximum of two golfers qualify, unless they have more than two in the top 15, where at most four can qualify. The Olympic Committee also guarantees at least one golfer from every continent qualifies and at least one golfer from the host country qualifies. My list also assumes that every player accepts their invitation to the Olympics, as this was not the case in 2016.
insert me hoping this table formats correctly
Rank OWGR Player Country
1 1 Tiger Woods USA
2 2 Ernie Els South Africa
3 3 Vijay Singh Fiji
4 4 Phil Mickelson USA
5 5 Davis Love III USA

55 463 Zaw Moe Myanmar
56 488 Julien Clement Switzerland
57 493 Henrik Bjornstad Norway
58 566 Marco Ruiz Paraguay
59 632 Frankie Minoza Philippines
60 1207 ??? Greece
A couple things to note. First, the host nation is guaranteed a spot. The 2004 Olympic host was Athens, Greece, but I could not find a single Greek golfer in the June 20th 2004 OWGR rankings (there’s only two golfers from Greece in the current OWGR rankings and the only one that has any points represented South Africa until 2018). Obviously they would fill a spot in the field, but I have no idea who that would be. Second, Darren Clarke is listed as from Ireland. Northern Ireland is technically part of the United Kingdom, but usually athletes from there able to play in the Olympics for either Great Britain or Ireland. Right now the IOC credits players like Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell as Irish, so the Northern Irish Darren Clarke is also listed under Ireland. As a note, the next golfer from Ireland proper would be Paul McGinley, ranked 116th in the world. Lastly, Stephen Ames is listed under Trinidad and Tobago. Ames at the time was listed under Canada, but changes his country affiliation several times in his career, including midway through 2004. If Ames were to keep his Canadian affiliation for the 2004 Olympics, then Glen Hnatiuk would be excluded from the Olympic field and Liang Wenchong, ranked 634th from China, would qualify instead.
For me the biggest thing to take away here is how low in the rankings you have to go in order to scrape together a field. Right now for the 2020 Olympics the last person is has been ranked consistently around 300th in the world. In 2004, ranking 300th in the world gets you comfortably into the field. I'd argue that this demonstrates how much golf has grown around the world in the last 15 years or so, but I can't say for sure unless we can look at other complete Olympic golf fields to compare, which might be impossible due to lack of record keeping.
Last thing I want to point out: Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Thongchai Jaidee, Alex Cejka, and Mikko Ilonen all would have played in both the 2004 and 2016 Olympics, and Adam Scott and Vijay Singh would have played in both if they accepted their invitation in 2016. Only Tiger, Rose, Scott, and Sergio are in line for both a 2004 Olympic berth and a 2020 Olympic berth.

2018.12.10 11:18 AlcoholicSocks Peter Crouch: Half Man Half Robot.

Previous Instalments:
Fellaini
Murray
Giroud
Please note that in the 'Goals/Assists' sections of this, not all of them will be shown. This is due to the age of the goals and the quality of the clips available
What if I told you there was a player with more appearances, more goals for club and country, and only 6 less assists than Paul Scholes? What if I told you there was a man with more Premier League games than Ashley Cole, more Premier League assists than Mesut Ozil, and more Premier League goals than Didier Drogba.
You'd be thinking that it was some kind of footballing god. Well you're close; it's Peter Crouch.
Now Crouch is a player that we all seem to love for one reason or another, unless of course you are from Trinidad and Tobago.. Loved by fans for his great sense of humour and realisation that he is lucky to be doing his job. With quotes such as 'If I wasn't a footballer, I'd be a virgin' to 'I’d go as far as to say they got themselves the division’s second best looking target man.' (When talking about the transfer of Giroud.) It's easy to see why the public love him.
He is instantly recognised because of his height, standing at 6ft7 he is one of the tallest players to ever grace the English game, and football in general. His height has always been used to the advantages of his teams, this is something that can be seen by his recent record of 51 headed Prem goals. His greatest strength is also his greatest weakness and unfortunately for Crouch, many managers see him as 'Plan B' in case anything is going wrong and a tactical change is needed. He is the player with the most appearances from the sub bench and 4th most goals from it. This has definitely caused the general perception from the public to be that Crouch isn't good enough to start for clubs and is better off the bench. So let's see how his career has gone and analyse how good his is.
Starting life out in Tottenham, he was loaned out twice. First to Dulwich Hamlet where he would make just 6 appearances and score 1 goal. Then a second loan to IFK Hässleholm where he managed 8 games and 3 goals. as I'm sure you can understand, finding the stats for such obscure teams is hard. Especially as this was the late 90s so I can't really bring much to the table here.
His performances here clearly impressed someone and QPR acquired the services of Crouch for a fee of just £60,000. During the 00-01 season, Crouch would play 47 games and score a reasonable 12 goals. Not bad for a 19 year old. Unfortunately, QPR would only actually win 4 of the games in which Crouch scored in and only 7 all season. Meaning they would finish in 23rd and get relegated. This would cause Portsmouth to buy him from QPR for £1.5Million. A lovely little profit for QPR, and something of a silver lining from the relegation.
The 01/02 season would be a good one for Crouch. He made his debut away against Wolves and scored the opening goal within 8 minutes in what would end a 2-2 draw. Obviously his goal was a header. He would continue this fine form and net 18 times in 37 games (3,309 minutes). A goal every 183 minutes.
This wouldn't go unnoticed and in March 2002, Premier League side Aston Villa came in for him and £5Million later he was theirs. Not bad for a man that went for £60,00 2 years ago. He would be apart of Villa's last 7 games (590 Minutes) of the Premier League season, scoring in 2 of them. A goal every 295 minutes.
At the end of the season he had played 44 games (3,899 minutes) for 2 clubs and scored 20 goals, a return of 1 goal every 195 minutes.
The following year would be a disaster for Crouch. He would make 14 appearances (582 Minutes) and not get a single goal or assist. After finishing 8th the season before, Villa would go on to end in 16th, 3 points above the drop.
Crouch would be loaned out to Norwich, a league below Villa for the first 3 months of the next season. During this time he managed to make 15 appearances (1,189 Minutes) and score 4 goals. 1 goal every 297 minutes. Crouch returned to Villa in January after his loan spell was done. He would go on to make 18 appearances (682 Minutes) for them and score 4 and get 2 assists. That's 1 contribution every 113 minutes. For the season as a whole his contribution was 1 goal every 187 minutes. That's just over 1 in every 2 games. Not bad at all to be honest. His time at Norwich was enough to earn him a winners medal as they would end the season as Champions of the First Division and get promoted into the Premier League.
Goals from this season:
Leicester 0-2 Aston Villa
Leicester 0-5 Aston Villa
Bolton 0-1 Aston Villa
Villa would go on to sell crouch to Southampton for £2.5Million. This season would be his best to date, netting on 15 occasions in 30 appearances (2,121 Minutes). A goal every 141 minutes. 12 of these would come in the league, making him joint 5th top scorer, tied with Andy Cole and Eidur Gudjohnsen. Despite his goal scoring form, Southampton finished in last place, 2 points away from safety.
Southampton's relegation meant they were unable to hold onto the star striker and Liverpool swooped him away for £7Million. Crouch's starts to the big move wasn't a good one. Goalless in in first 1,229 minutes. His general play had actually be very good, his finishing however hadn't. This came to an end when he netted 2 past Wigan in a 3-0 win, the first of which was very fortunate to go in (see below). He would go on to finish the season with 49 appearances (3,299 Minutes), score 13 and assist twice. Giving him a goal contribution of 1 every 219 minutes. If we take away his goal drought at the start of the season he had 1 contribution every 138 minutes. It just shows the effect confidence can have on a player. Liverpool would end the season in 3rd place. 1 Point away from 2nd placed United and 9 away from winners Chelsea. Liverpool would also end the season as FA cup champions after that thrilling 3-3 draw against West Ham. He also got an assist in that game, see below.
Goals/Assists that season:
Goal: Liverpool 1-0 Wigan
Goal: Liverpool 2-0 Wigan
Assist: Liverpool 2-2 West Ham
The next season would be even better for Peter. The season would start strong with him getting the winning goal in the 2-1 win against Chelsea to win the Community Shield. Crouch would go on to make 50 appearances for Liverpool this season (2,575 Minutes), score 18 times and assist 6. Giving him 1 goal contribution every 107 minutes. He would net 6 times in the Champions League on the way to the final, they ended up losing 2-1 against AC Milan. No miracles for them this time. He also got his first career hat-trick in an outstanding 4-1 win at Arsenal. It also just happened to be a perfect hat-trick. You can see all 3 goals below.
Goals/Assists this season:
Goal: Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool
Goal: Liverpool 2-1 West Ham
Goal: Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa
Goal: Liverpool 1-0 Bolton
Goal: Liverpool 1-0 Arsenal
Goal: Liverpool 2-0 Arsenal
Goal: Liverpool 4-1 Arsenal
The next season would prove to be Crouch's last at Liverpool, his playtime was dwindling, mainly due to the arrival of Torres. That being said he still managed 36 appearances (1,985 Minutes), scored 11 and assisted 6. that's 1 contribution every 116 minutes. Still not bad for a man who only played all 90 mins of a league game 6 times.
At the end of the season he was sold to Portsmouth for £11Million.
Goals/Assists this season:
Goal: Liverpool 1-0 Besiktas
Goal: Liverpool 8-0 Besiktas
Assist: Liverpool 2-1 Arsenal
As mentioned, he played the next season for Portsmouth. he made 49 appearances for them (4,326 Minutes). Scoring 15 and assisting 4, giving him a return of 1 contribution every 227minutes. Not a great return compardd to his last few seasons. it was good enough to keep Portsmouth up in 14th though!
(Note: I had an issue with Imgur and it wont let me upload any more highlights. So no goals from here on :( )
After this season he would return back to Tottenham for £10Million. This would coincide with Spurs' best ever season to date, they finished 4th after his 82nd minute goal against Man City on the second to last game of the season allowed them to secure a champions league place for the first time. A goal that Peter himself as the best feeling he has ever had on a football pitch. Here is a video of that historic goal
Crouch ended up making 47 appearances (2,968 minutes) this season, scoring 13 and assisting 9. A contribution every 134 minutes.
The following season was similar in terms of output for the big lad. 45 games (2,649 minutes) 11 goals and 12 assists. Giving him a contribution every 115 minutes. There was also a very unfortunate and bizarre twist of fate in this season. Last year he scored in a 1-0 win against City to secure Champions League football. This time, in the 3rd to last game of the season, he scored again in a 1-0 against City. Unfortunately it was an Own Goal and it secured City had Cl football this time. In the CL Crouch helped Spurs reach the Quarter Finals, before losing to Real Madrid. The run included navigating a tricky group of Inter Milan, Werder Bremen and FC Twente and then beating AC Milan in the next round. Crouch scored the deciding goal against AC Milan.
In the summer Crouch was sold to Stoke, the 12th club of his career for a fee of £12Million. His powers had started to dwindle and his game time and return would get worse each season. he is still at Stoke now, having made 251 appearances for them (15,206 minutes) scoring 60 and assisting 27. So he has been getting a return of 1 goal contribution every 174 minutes. That's still very good for a man of his age. During his time at stoke he has scored his 100th Premier League goal, hit an absolute worldey against Man City and unfortunately been relegated again.
Let's quickly talk about his legendary England record. In England its a fact people like to mention, Crouch has a better goal to game ratio for England than Rooney, Owen, Shearer, Sheringham and Defoe. Only Lineker has a better record than him. Crouch is 0.52 a game, Lineker is 0.6. However Crouch only averaged 52 Minutes a game, Lineker averaged 80. The stats point to Crouch being Englands best goalscorer. Know we all know in practise, we would rather have any of the other names listed up top. But is that just because we also see Crouch as a tall target man for plan b, and not for a deadly striker? Either way, 22 goals in 42 games can't be laughed at. Also he has one of the most iconic celebrations of all time
In his career crouch played 41,781 minutes of football across 720 games. Scoring 204 and assisting 69. 1 Goal contribution every 153 minutes. That's not bad at all for a man that's considered just a tall target man. His touch is something he doesn't get enough credit for and you can see in some of his goals he can hit them from anywhere. His height is something that should have been a secondary option, but most managers only use him for it. it's fitting he will probably end his career in the second tier of football, the same tier he stared in and made his name.
Crouch will be one of them players that will be remembered for all the right reasons. A lovable, tall, funny man that just happened to be a class finisher.

2018.03.20 05:38 PopeInnocentXIV Dear /r/crh: I never thought this would happen to me...

I was at my parents' house yesterday for my mom's annual Palm Sunday brunch (always held the week before Palm Sunday). I brought over my modest little album, such as it is, to show my mom's cousin whom we all call Sonny. Sonny is more of a bank strap hunter than a coin roll hunter, going through $500 of singles every day, trying to make full sets of star notes among other things. I show him my couple of CRH successes, like my 1909 Barber half, my 1942 AU Walking Liberty half, and my 1939 AU Jefferson nickel, along with some paper like a 1963A $1 star note with three leading zeroes and a 1977 $100 star note. I have three red seal notes as well (including two consecutively numbered 1963 $2 notes). He mentions that my mom had a blue seal $5 star note that he told her to give me. She goes upstairs to get it, and she also wanted to show me an old Italian 5-lira coin that was made out of aluminum.
She couldn't find the 5-lira coin, but she did find the $5 blue seal star note, along with a bunch of 1935 and 1957 $1 silver certificates. And three consecutively numbered 1963 $2 red seal notes, which, when combined with my two, made five consecutively numbered notes. I think I got my two from my grandma years ago.
Anyway, she also brings down a tin box full of coins that heretofore I never even knew existed. Sonny and I start going through them, and our jaws drop.
Peace dollars. Morgan silver dollars, including a 1921 AU. Silver halves: an 1895 Barber, four Walking Libertys, three Franklins, half a dozen Kennedy 90%ers and even more 40%ers. A roll of silver quarters. Mercury and silver Roosevelt dimes. Buffalo nickels. A V nickel. Indian head and steel pennies. A large cent from 1848. And that's just the American money. There were about 130 French coins: some said Republique Française, some said Etat Français from World War II and were made of aluminum, some were Chambres de Commerce from the early 1920s, some had Napoleon III on them, and there was a half-franc from 1845 with Louis-Philippe I, which was the oldest coin in the box. Canadian and British coins: Elizabeth II, George VI, George V, Edward VII, Victoria. Two shillings, sixpence, threepence, about nine large pennies, two half pennies, a farthing. Guilders from Curaçao. A State of Washington sales tax token from the 1930s. Coins from Hungary, Finland, Trinidad and Tobago, Brazil, Mexico, Czechoslovakia, Portugal. A pair of Italian 10-centesimi coins from 1866 with King Victor Emmanuel II on the obverse. A coin with a square hole with Chinese writing on one side and Arabic Manchurian writing on the other. A 25-pfennig coin issued by the state of Bonn in Germany in 1920 to commemorate the 150th birthday of Beethoven.
All told there were about 450 coins, including several that were so worn you could only make out the country or the year but not both, and a couple for which you couldn't even do that. One even looked like it was just a well-oxidized blank planchet. Twenty came had dates from the 19th century.
As my parents took their honeymoon in Aruba, most of the Netherlands Antilles coins came from there, and some came from their various world travels. The silver quarters they probably hoarded sometime after 1965, and there was also more than a roll's worth of Drummer Boy quarters they also stockpiled. But the others--Morgan and Peace dollars, silver Canadian quarters, British pennies, and all those French coins--I can't explain. Two days ago I had no idea these had always been in the house I grew up in. My grandma lived only a working-class life.
Some stats:
All in all, not what I was expecting to see at Palm Sunday brunch this year.

2018.01.09 19:29 NoMoreNicksLeft A book I've been threatening to write for nearly two years now: Classification For Computer Science, Engineering, and Technology Materials

Most of you here have heard me or someone else mention UDC before. It's a library classification scheme for how to arrange books on a shelf so people can find what they're looking for... but some of us have discovered that it works pretty nicely for files in a filesystem too.
If you haven't checked it out yet, do so (and msg one of us if you can't find the books that describe it).
However, it has its... I should be generous here, "imperfections". The vast majority of the subjects and topics that it covers are handled expertly, librarians clearly know many things about many fields of study. But there are a few that are just too novel or complicated (or both), and the UDC scheme doesn't organize them very well.
One of those is computer science and technology. That said, there's a curiosity here... UDC puts computer science into the 000s which are "General Works". I like this alot, it hints that computer science is more fundamental than any other, even mathematics and physics ends up in the 500s. Anyway, 004 is reserved for computer science, which is a moderately large chunk of real estate as well. But if you dig into the descriptions for the subcategories those are just awful. I consider it unusable. And unlike for law/legal, no one has yet published an alternative scheme. I hinted that I was going to do so about a year ago, and I thought you might all appreciate an update. So here it is.
I'll be detailing 004.7xx, which is the subcategory for technical standards. These might have been published as books (especially older standards), or just as papers or downloadable pdfs. In some cases, they're decades-old scans of typewritten manuscripts. These aren't always formally published either, some are leaked internal documents, or at most were privately distributed to partners designing compatible systems.
There are alot of these, as you can imagine. Easily tens of thousands of unique documents, probably more like hundreds of thousands or even millions. And they're important too, they help to keep our technological civilization functioning. So they deserve a full 10% of the numberspace.
Organizing them is tricky though. For one thing, while many come from so-called standards organization (IETF, ISO, etc), many important ones don't. The GIF file format, for instance, was published by Compuserve. A company that no longer even exists in any meaningful way. For another, some standards are cross-numbered... IEEE will assign it a number in its scheme, then ISO comes along and rubber-stamps it, and now it's an official standard from both.
Now if the big standards bodies are given part of the numberspace and we lump everything else into a "misc" subcategory, we're just shifting the problem elsewhere. Not to mention that many dissimilar topics will be lumped together... ISO handles everything from the size of cardboard boxes to software.
Given all these issues, there seems to be only one way to do this sensibly. The first subcategories for 004.7 should group standards of similar subjects together.
70x - Hardware 701 - Power supplies 702 - Mechanical specifications 703 - Interfaces & buses 704 - Network & radio 705 - Electronic components 706 - Processors 707 - Storage systems 708 - Audio hardware 71x - File formats 711 - Executable & shared object formats 712 - Image formats 713 - Audio formats 714 - Video formats 715 - Document formats 716 - Archive & compression formats 717 - 3d scene, model & shader formats 72x - OS facilities 720 - Character encodings 721 - Color spaces 722 - File systems 723 - Networking protocols 724 - Communication protocols (machine communication) 725 - Application protocols 004.725.9001.6120 - "XMPP/Jabber" 726 - Operating system environments 731 - Security 732 - Cryptography 733 - Blockchains 734 - Distributed hash tables 741 - RPC & services 742 - Programming languages 743 - Namespaces 799 - Engineering humor 
Now, if you want to keep things simple, you can stop here and no further subcategories are necessary. However, if you have many such files, you may want to tack on the the standards organization next. For instance, if you have many image format documents, using the standards organization next will make all of them sort by standards orgs within that folder. For that purpose, there is an auxiliary table of those. It's meant to be comprehensive (but still WIP), and as such it has some rather improbable items in the list (I dare anyone to find a standards document form the Bureau voor Normalisatie in Belgium!). As I've stated elsewhere, sometimes standards are published by multiple groups, it's up to your personal discretion which group to use when classifying your files.

This is an abbreviated listing, by the way. More on that later.
For most users of this system, this is where you'll stop making folders/directories. You may have a directory for "3006 - IEEE" but there will be no need for a "8023 Ethernet" within it. You'll probably still want files to sort in a predictable manner though... so the rest of this is more useful for the filename scheme itself.
004 - Computer science & technology 703 - Interfaces & buses 3018 - PCI SIG 704 - Network & radio 3006 - IEEE 710 - File formats xxxx - Electronic Arts 712 - Image formats xxxx - Compuserve Inc. 9002 - W3C 
The filename is going to have several obligatory components, and several optional components. The obligatory components are:
  • title of papestandard
  • revision (use date when unavailable, as much as needed to make it unique)
  • publication year
The optional components are:
  • ISBN (not always registered... IEEE papers seem to have these though)
  • authors/editors (not always credited)
  • human-recognizable acronym/abbreviation (gif is recognizable, but who knows what "graphic interchange format" is?)
  • the standards body itself, by name instead of aux table number
  • standards body number (removing punctuation when possible, improvisation permitted)
Keeping all this in mind, my recommended scheme is thus:
number - (abbrev) Title of standard (rev, YYYY) - Standards body; author; author.ext 
Examples:
1 - (IFF) Standard for Interchange Format Files (r1985) - Electronic Arts.txt 1 - (GIF) Standard for Graphics Interchange Format (r1987) - CompuServe Inc.txt 2 - (GIF) Standard for Graphics Interchange Format (r1990) - CompuServe Inc.txt 8023 - Standard for Ethernet (r1983) - IEEE.pdf 
Note: I've started to remove trailing periods on names when they abut the dot for the file extension.
In these examples, putting the date next to the revision was redundant. But those standards with proper rev. numbers would look something like this:
1 - PCI Local Bus Specification (r3.0, 2004) - PCI SIG.pdf 
Now, for those of you that only keep a few such documents, this is pretty heavy weight. A Compuserve directory is overkill (the gif format may be one of the few standards they ever published). You might only have a dozen or so works on image file formats at all... why the subdirectories?
So instead, you'll have a flatter folder structure and move some of the elements into the filenames:
004 - Computer science & technology 703 - Interfaces & buses 3018.1 - PCI Local Bus Specification (r3.0, 2004) - PCI SIG.pdf 704 - Network & radio 3006.8023 - Standard for Ethernet (r1983) - IEEE.pdf 710 - File formats xxxx1 - (IFF) Standard for Interchange Format Files (r1985) - Electronic Arts.txt 712 - Image formats xxxx.1 - (GIF) Standard for Graphics Interchange Format (r1987) - CompuServe Inc.txt xxxx.2 - (GIF) Standard for Graphics Interchange Format (r1990) - CompuServe Inc.txt 9002 - (PNG) Portable Network Graphics Specification (r2) - W3C; Duce, David.pdf 

Epilogue

In the course of writing this, several deficiencies have become apparent.
  • Many IETF standards (RFCs) are nothing more than the registration of a particular mime-type for a particular file format which is already in widespread use. Do these belong in 743 (namespaces), or in a separate subcategory?
  • The distinction between application protocols and network protocols has always been fuzzy. Is RTP a networking protocol or application? Certainly applications make use of RTP, but on the other hand there's quite a bit of low-level stuff in there about managing traffic.
  • Are there any extant standards on video/display hardware? I've got NTSC and ATSC as standards orgs... maybe I need to allocate 709 for that.
Finally, compiling comprehensive lists of industry standards groups and singular businesses has been slow-going. I'm going to present the full lists (as yet unnumbered... listing these by their birth year, and if there are any missing in the middle I don't want to have to renumber everything) in comments, and if anyone would go over them and note whether there seem to be any obvious gaps, I would appreciate it. This is turning out to be one of the most effort intensive parts of coming up with this scheme (and if I ever finish this thing, free copies to everyone here in datacurator, of course).

2017.08.03 14:14 NotAnAdultyet Historical Project Mod - Version 0.3.7.0 & 0.3.7.1

Historical Project Mod - Version 0.3.7.1 (Checksum ZIVJ) for HOD 3.04 - 19/07/2017. NOT Save Game Compatible (even with 0.3.7). All minimods are NOT compatible. Probably. https://www.dropbox.com/s/n62vfwi3pm2ev9x/HPM%200.3.7.1.7z?dl=0
Changelog (0.3.7.0):*
-(previous version but forgot to add) Mirza modifier for Persia: RP gain effect cut in half.
-Changed province 12 - Reliance in Canada to Sado in Japan. It starts with around 25K pops, producing precious metals and under the Shogunate ownership. Numbers based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographic_history_of_Japan_before_the_Meiji_Restoration#Former_provinces - Thanks go to the anon who gave the source. Pops come from the Nigata province, which used to encompass the island. Added Sado as a Treaty Port.
-Fixed a few (11) stray pixel clusters, added provinces (and names) to 35 lakes in South America, Australia, Africa and Asia.
-The Tanzimat Reforms now come with a one-year modifier to represent the Ottoman Land Code of 1858.
-Added an event for the Kanpur Massacre. The event can happen in any province with high militancy and primary pops from the colonial nation in India.
-Isolationist Uncivs will not be able to subside imports. Instead, they are forced to institute minimum tariffs, with protectionist countries locked at 95% minimum and free trade countries locked at 25% minimum.
-Added 1100 south German soldier pops to Nafplion to represent the Bavarian Troops in Greece. Added a starting unit that corresponds to these pops. Based on http://www.mwme.eu/essays/bavarian-greece/Haggenmueller_Intro/index.html
-Added a new Party Policy: Welfare policy. Pops don't care about it (as in, it's not an issue they vote for) and it's tied to the party ideology. Its effects the minimum and maximum spending in the Social slider. Socialist parties will push for a full welfare state, with communist and fascist parties adopting a paternalist policy and anarcho-liberals strongly opposing spending on welfare. Liberals, Reactionaries and Conservatives are unaffected.
-Stopped province 1421 - Madura from flipping to Rubber from Sulfur.
-Made being dismantled play a bigger role in unlocking fascist ideology.
-The "Claim the Levant CB" can't be used against GPs anymore, so after a GP takes a piece of the Levant from Egypt it will stay with them unless you justify a "place in the sun CB" against them.
-Reshaped Brescia, Tuscany, Siena, Rome (and surrounding provinces) to follow more natural boundaries such as rivers and be more aesthetic overall.
-Added the Apennines that extend from north to the south to the Italian peninsula. Redid the Terrain in the Italian lands and Corsica.
-Added an Atoll terrain. In the new terrain it's impossible to build railroads and the RGO size is extremely small. Changed a few of the islands in the pacific that corresponded to this terrain. Fixed a few wrong name placements in Polynesia.
-Changed the LR of Brindsi and Messina from 35 to 40 to better represent the growth in these regions.
-Reshaped Aquila, Foggia, Perugia and Ancona to better represent the terrain of the Italian peninsula. Province 10 - Inuvik was repurposed as Pescara in Italy and the old province is now part of 2598 - Fort Liard. Pops for the new province come from Aquila.
-Renamed province 2351 - La Plata to Magdalena. Added a decision to build La Plata that will rename the province.
-Added the French Alps: Grenoble and Digne changed from forest and farms to mountains. Reshaped Valence, Grenoble, Avignon, Toulon and Frejus to better fit with the terrain. Frejus and Toulun terrain changed from Farms to hills, to represent the last bits of the Alps.
-Added the Austrian Alps: Klagenfurt, Judenburg and Sankt Pölten are now mountains.
-Sardinia now is completely hilly.
-Merged province 8 - Ross River into province 7 - Dawson. Province 8 is now Belluno in Italy. Changed Province 732 - Treviso from Iron to Timber and province 8 - Belluno from Timber to Iron.
-Fixed wrong brackets screwing the literacy setup of Italians in Austria.
-Changed LR in 827 - Zante and 843 - Chios from 30 to 35 and 32 respectively. Changed Ionian Islands literacy to be more in line with Greece, lowered plurality.
-Added a Setup for Greece, south germans will start with more literacy, Greece will start with a small baby boom for 4 years.
-Stopped Russia from being able to see the decision to integrate Lithuania in the UBD.
-Integrated 2669 - Amga in 2648 - Yakutsk. Now 2669 is Sondrio, in Italy.
-Moved the starting event about deciding if Crisis will be vanilla or not to a decision, under an umbrella of "optional" decisions. There's a few ways of tweaking the game through those decisions, but to avoid clutter, they all disappear in 1837 (and later on, in other start dates, they will disappear in a year).
-Renamed State GRE_837 from Attica to Central Greece.
-To make sure the "Sonno Joi" province event doesn't fire in case of a Tokugawa peaceful victory, now it requires any japanese-primary tag to be neighboring the country.
-Changed the name of the Australian Fascist Party.
-Using the decision to close borders requires Residency citizenship policy or a Fascist/Communist Dictatorship, meaning these governments can always take the decision.
-During the Senussi and the Algerian Rebellion, as well as the Bedr Khan Massacre, the spawned tags should be able to mobilize troops instead of being unable to fight. Senussi and Algeria should also start with Tuareg as accepted and a general. Changed a few pops to soldiers in Libya and Algeria so they can build a brigade. Fixed the Ottoman Empire getting the wrong CBs for the Senussi if they don't go immediately to war with them.
-Changed the adjective of the SGF from "German" to "South German", to keep consistency with the NGF.
-Changed Trinidad and Tobago and Trieste to Civilized status at the game start.
-Added option to Secularize society for Muslim nations. Non-secular Muslim countries cannot build Wineries or Distilleries and have the old "Islamic law" modifier as a triggered modifier. The Tanzimat Reforms secularize the Ottoman Empire.
-Renamed province 211 - Blackstone to Lynchburg.
-Fixed an issue with a decision that made the CSA capital move to province 211 - Lynchburg (old Blackstone) immediately.
-Fixed not being able to use the decision to integrate Lithuania in the UBD if the UBD owned Lithuanian cores.
-Changed Misri culture color to a darker shade of green by anon's suggestion.
-Health Care and Education reforms now give half of the bonus they used to give. The other half comes from a triggered modifier (that checks once per month) that triggers if administration/education has enough fund. The minimum amount for it to trigger is 20/30/40/50% Admin funding for Health Care and 30/40/50% Education funding for School reforms. Each reform level description has a text that tells you the minimum funding for the full bonus.
-Having the last Health Care reform and fully funding Administration will now give a bonus 0.02% for pop growth. Having the last School Reform and fully funding education will give a 0.10% bonus to education efficiency.
-Civilized nations with more than one state and more than 1 million pops have to invest a minimum in education if they don't want to lose literacy (through a triggered modifier). At 25% literacy you need to keep education spending at 10% at least. At 50% literacy you need to keep spending in 20% minimum and at 75% literacy the minimum is 30%.
-Removed old references to the "Islamic Law" modifier.
-Added a decision that turns Crete in a state for civilized powers in Europe.
-Updated the "Release Vassal" decisions.
-Added a set of decisions akin to NNM's "Release Vassal" decisions that allow you to return cores to individual countries, if they are your puppet or in your sphere. It doesn't return provinces that have your cores in them, though.
-Added a third option to the "Release Vassal" and the "Return Core" decisions to disable the decisions completely for the rest of the game. Useful if you don't plan to use them and just want to unclutter the decision tab.
-Halved all party loyalty in Switzerland, the UK and US. Now party loyalty at the game start doesn't go above 20% (previously 40%).
-When Transylvania joins (and becomes) Romania, it will lose Hungarian as accepted. Similarly when Panama joins the FRCA it will also lose North Andean as accepted.
-Added an event for the Serbian Constitution of 1838 and included Serbia in the liberal revolutions. Based on http://users.ox.ac.uk/~oaces/conference/papers/Bojan_Mitrovic.pdf
-When a country uses the decision to leave a SoI, if the GP refuses to act now it loses 10% of its prestige instead of always losing 20 prestige.
-Changed the Krakatoa event so it's not a major event anymore. It also doesn't kill 20% of the Bogor province (at the game start that would be 148K people) and now it kills 4% (around 36K people, game start values). It will also destroy a level of railroad and fort, if any are present in the province, as well as a level of the Naval Base in Batavia and it will reduce the Life Rating in Bogor by 1. Improved the event description a bit.
-Changed the Tunguska event so it's not a major event anymore, it doesn't change LR and it only kills pops if there's more than 10k pops in the province, but it completely wipes forts and railroads from the province. Improved the description a bit.
-Changed the San Francisco Earthquake event so it's not a major event anymore. It completely wipes forts, naval bases and railroads from the province and kills 2% of the population instead of the old 10% and it costs £50,000 for the owner of San Francisco. It also has a "devastation" modifier that will severely reduce province production (and hopefully close a few factories). Improved the description a bit.
-The UK will lose Irish as accepted when the Irish Republic Brotherhood event fires, to represent the rise of Nationalism in Ireland.
-Fixed a few instances of acquire_all_cores CB that would instantly white peace, like the '54-40 or fight' event for the US.
-Vassal countries that have vassals can no longer use the decisions to free vassals.
-Fixed a potential bug that happened if Egypt released the Levantine nations before the Oriental Crisis, which would end with the GPs declaring war on Egypt but instantly peacing out. Additionally, GPs will not declare war on Egypt if they don't own any Turkish cores.
-For clarity's sake, the hidden modifiers that affected pop migration that were associated with the last 3 Voting Franchise reforms are now directly tied to the reforms (and added to the old migration bonuses of these reforms, so Universal voting gave 5% immigrant attraction, now it gives 55% (5% + 50% of the old hidden modifier). The old GP bonus to immigrant attraction was moved from the pop files to the static modifiers. Both these changes don't change a thing in relation to immigrant attraction percentage, but they will make things more clear in regards to what reforms are important to attract immigrants and will hopefully help with performance.
-Secondary Powers now have a 5% bonus to immigrant attraction.
-Changes to pop immigration behavior: Capitalists will be 50% more likely to immigrate to L-F countries and 50% less likely to immigrate to countries with planned economy. Intellectuals don't care about general unemployment anymore when deciding where to migrate, they instead care about education funding (starting at 70% funding and ending at 100%, that gives between 10% to 50% bonus to immigrant attraction of these pops, depending on education funding), since they are paid by that slider. Same thing for soldiers and officers (with the military slider). What this means is that these pops will care more about how well paid they will be, since they will only be unemployed if they demote. Less than 40% funding will mean a -25% chance for these pops to pick the country.
-Instead of giving 1% bonus to immigration attraction, the "Underground Parties" reform will instead give -1%. The Harassment reform is now Neutral to immigrant attraction and the other reforms behave as vanilla.
-Stopped a few events that could change the UH/Voting/Electoral reforms during an election from happening during an election.
-Event 4420 - Cabinet Discusses War will not longer give a conquest CB on all neighboring countries, regardless if you can use it or not. Instead, it will only fire if you have a neighboring country with more than 1 state and it will give a single CB to acquire a state in a random neighboring country with more than 1 state.
-Similar to vanilla event 60140 where Liberal/Socialist force the "Appointed" UH Reform, when Socialists/Communists(not in a proletarian dictatorship) get to the UH and Trade Unions are illegal, they will force the "State Controlled" Trade Union reform (only if the country has Revolution and Counterrevolution researched).
-British Poor Strata will be way less likely to demand a change to the First Past the Post reform. Pops overall will care much less to change from FPTP until some basic reforms such as Free Press, Voting Rights and Meeting Rights have been acquired.
-Fixed a potentially serious vanilla bug where artisans didn't actually own their production (which may help to explain why they starved so much, though it seems they still got money somehow).
-Farmers, Laborers, Craftsmen and Clerks now care about Trade Union reforms (before that, no pops cared about those reforms) and will try to push for them. Craftsmen are the ones who care the most, followed by laborers, farmers and then clerks, who care the least. Socialism, unemployment, fulfilled life/everyday needs and CON are the main factors affecting this.
-Cleaned up the poptype files a bit, corrected a few mistakes.
-Decreased invention impact on demand from 0.1 to 0.06.
-Added several Natural Disaster events, all relating to devastating earthquakes (and as a rule of thumb, for an earthquake to go in as an event, it either needs to be very destructive or cause a lot of casualties), namely the 1877 Iquique earthquake, 1868 Arica Earthquake, the 1896 Sanriku earthquake, the Great Ansei Earthquakes, the Great Neapolitan earthquake, the 1908 Messina earthquake.
-Fixed a wrong localization issue with the Enact Anaconda Plan for the CSA.
-Modified the Law of Return decision from Israel to correctly take out money instead of giving, fixing the events associated with it so it actually works how it was intended and to take into account open/closed border status, among other things. Changed the duration of the modifiers for the return of the diaspora pops from 2 to 5 years. Re-localized it so the decision can be used by Armenia too, if they want to bring back the Armenians from the diaspora. Differently from Israel, Armenia needs to be at least a SP to see the decision. The event structured was adapted from the source material a kind anon provided. The events for the law of return for Israel will also no longer increase the immigrating pops literacy.
-Correct a wrong flag for Canada.
-Added a Irredentist decision for Israel.
-Fixed the localization in the event for German LR normalization and made it fire earlier, when Germany reaches 1895 levels of pops.
-Made the German Namibia event in a decision, added tech requirements to it.
-When a nation asks for home rule, the country that gets the request will now lose the requesting country primary culture as an accepted culture, regardless of their answer.
-Instead of being completely immune to nations asking for home rule, the tags AUS, KUK, DNB and YUG will now get the requests (it was this way in NNM) but the AI will always reject it by default, so they will deal with unrest in the nations that ask for this. Considering the change of the above item, this also means tags like YUG and DNB can slowly lose accepted cultures. To deal with this, accepted cultures have more strict requirements when asking for home rule: they need high CON and MIL (more than 6-7) in a state as well as over 50% literacy. If the culture isn't accepted, just a bit of MIL (usually 2-3) and a bit of literacy (more than 25%) is needed, which is a requirement similar to before. This means that multicultural union tags will become more brittle and vulnerable to internal dissatisfaction, so a big focus should be in keeping everyone happy (or suppressed).
-Iceland won't ask home rule from Scandinavia anymore.
-Norway should declare independence before 1900 if Sweden stops being a Monarchy or if relations dip too low and CON is high. While they declare independence they will also fight for it if they get a "no", so it won't be a simple "refuse forever" case anymore. Sweden will lose Norwegian as accepted when the event happens.
-Condensed the Falklands/Malvinas renaming decisions in one decision (instead of 2) and removed the 2 prestige you could get from it.
-Fixed a possible issue that could end with the invest_in_irish decision being taken endlessly.
-Changed event 31100 about the discovery of Troy. Previously it always gave prestige to Turkey, now it depends on a GP (or SP in Europe/Levant) taking the decision to search for the Aegean civilizations and getting lucky. Added newspaper references that existed in Vanilla but weren't included because someone forgot to add a few lines to the event files. Reworked the event and newspapers text.
-Changed event 46800 about the discovery of Machu Picchu. Previously it always gave prestige to Peru, now it depends on a GP (or SP in the Americas) taking the decision to search for the city and getting lucky. For both events, High education spending and GP status increase the likelihood of discovery. The events give the same amount of prestige and require techs from the Social Thought tree, among other requirements. They become visible in 1850 and 1890 respectively, so players should have time to prepare for them. They are only visible if you fill the other conditions: being at least rank 3, having the owner of the Cusco/Canakkale in your sphere or being a GP/SP in the Americas for Machu Picchu or in Europe/Levant for Troy. This model will be follow for similar decisions/events.
-Fixed a few typos and improved a few descriptions in the events/news files.
-Founding the Suez Canal Company now also requires the business_banks tech.
-Fixed a few party names for Ireland. The Portuguese Fascist Party name was changed from "Estado Novo" to "União Nacional". Yugoslavia's Fascists were renamed to ZBOR.
-To accommodate non fascist but highly authoritarian regimes, Presidential Dictatorships now can have a fascist party as the ruling party.
-Condensed the two decisions to rename Wallonia in a single one, made the description generic enough.
-Countries annexed through the Doctrine of Lapse and the Russian equivalent now can only be annexed once through it.
-Former colonial countries will now be released as uncivs and will have the option to civilize instantly on release (if they have 15% literacy) through a decision. If they do this, their informal status will be "semi-civilized". This means that they get a tech school that greatly reduces their research speed and can be reverted to Traditional Academia when they reach 25% literacy and have a few techs.
-The country that gets the Congo will now be left out of the free Scramble for Africa CBs.
-Lagos isn't needed anymore to form Nigeria, only one province in each of the 3 coastal states.
-Increased the effects of Autocracy/Tradition NVs on Conservative/Reactionary/Fascist/Communist ideology inclinations. Ideological inclinations from NVs will now only affect pops that are primary/accepted in a country. That means that greeks under the Ottoman Empire won't be more conservative just because they are in the Ottoman Empire. This means that in homogeneous countries with these NVs, they will gain more stability but multi-cultural countries will still be rocky by the ideology of the minorities.
-The provincia_cisplatina decision for Brazil now can be taken by an Absolute Monarchy with a Jingoist Party.
-Changed province 900 - Antakya from the Aleppo state to the Adana state.
-Checked and re-did all the pops in the Ottoman Empire in the Balkans, Anatolia and the ME. Pops were changed so minorities always have the 4 basic pop types (farmers/laborers, intellectuals, soldiers and artisans) with additional 2 (aristocrats and officers) in capitals. This is done to avoid assimilation problems, no matter who owns the land. Pops now should always have a valid target to promote to. A few places like Bosnia and Aydin were missing soldier pops, sometimes even turkish soldiers (in the case of Aydin), so that's also fixed.
-Changed the whole of Ottoman Iraqi to colonial governments. This is done to reflect that Mamluk Rule in Baghdad ended only 5 years early, when they still ruled as an unciv with high (or almost complete) autonomy. Turkish pops in Iraq were made in Kurdids pops, so Kurdish parts of Iraq have more kurds. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_R%C4%B1za_Pasha_(governor_of_Baghdad) and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mamluk_dynasty_(Iraq) -Removed Turkish pops from Aleppo. To provide some access to Iraq, Dayr al-Zour will start under Ottoman Rule. This is done until I re-do provinces in the ME.
-EXPERIMENTAL: Disabled promotion on assimilation.
-Added new terrain types for the new world, for small islands and for the tundra/desert/boreal forests. This is made so these terrains don't have a huge RGO size just because they are in the new world and places like Hawaii can have more people than any place in the old world.
-Changed the "Christian Oppression" modifier for the Ottoman Empire so it doesn't give militancy and consciousness for non accepted pops. Instead, AI countries will each year take a decision to give militancy/CON to non Sunni pops in the Ottoman Empire. Previously, any non-turkish pops would get progressively get more pissed off, including the Muslims.
-Made the starting general for Tripoli a bit better.
-Removed the CON reduction in wartime that was inherited from NNM.
-Romanians, Albanians and pops in the Levantine and South Slav culture groups will be much more inclined to join nationalist/patriotic rebels than ideological rebels if they can IF they aren't accepted cultures and have a different religion from the state religion of the country.
-The decision to Annex Bosnia after the Berlin Conference now can be taken by any GP that owns Serbia and Southern Serbia or Croatia and Slavonia or Dalmatia.
-Reduced the LR in Togo from 15 to 10, made a decision to claim the place for Europeans GPs/SPs.
-Changed the citizenship_policy of the Ottoman Empire parties a bit so they have the whole spectrum of options supported and so pops don't end up always going for the same rebels.
-Added Party names for Greece and Serbia, based on a kind anon suggestions and http://www.worldstatesmen.org/Greece.html The "French Faction" (Ethnikó Kómma) are now the liberals and the British Party (Syntagmatikó Kómma) are the conservatives. Previously, it was the other way around.
-Added better description to a few reforms.
Changelog (0.3.7.1):*
-[Old Version]Reshaped several states in Siberia.
-[Old Version]Stop the decision for naming Lushun from being taking endlessly in certain situations.
-[Old Version]Renamed Buganda to Uganda.
-[Old Version]Stopped the "Independence for Tunisia" event from potential happening repeatedly. Now it only fires once.
-Liberia will now start with the "Developing Academia" Tech School.
-Added some missing Greek Pops to Crete.
-Fixed a wrong party name in Serbia.
-Made the Argentinian tags (SBA, ENT and CRT) non-releasable, to stop them from being released from the Argentine Confederation by war.
-Checked the Ottoman starting army and guaranteed none of the brigades start with missing pops. Reorganized the military to follow the historical organization. Based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottoman_military_reforms#Reforms_of_Abd.C3.BClmecit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Army_(Ottoman_Empire)#Formations https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asakir-i_Mansure-i_Muhammediye and https://tr.wikipedia.org/wiki/A%C4%9Fa_H%C3%BCseyin_Pa%C5%9Fa
-Added Turkish pops back to northern Iraq. They should be around 3% of the total population of Iraq, distributed in Mosul, Rewanduz and Sulaymania and 3% of Syria, distributed in Aleppo and Dayr al-Zour.
-Added a Turkmeneli tag to stop Turkish pops in Iraq and Syria from assimilating if the OT falls.
-Fixed the Greater California decision cores in Sonora.
-Made sure an event for the central Americans states don't fire against a country that doesn't exist.
-54'40 or fight event changed so it can fire if the US isn't a democracy.
-Removed event 16452.
-Stopped the decision to rename dutch wallonia from firing endlessly.
-Troy/Machu Picchu province owners now can take the decision to search for the city.
-Slight increase in Austrian Italy literacy for north Italians to (hopefully) make assimilation bug harder to happen.
-Changed the way the penalty to assimilation for accepted cultures with union tags in a province so it's significantly smaller, making the tooltip for assimilation easier to read. Also made it completely generic: any culture in a province with a core of a union tag that is accepted by said union tag will now count as "primary" for assimilation purposes (aka it will not assimilate).
-Added all pop types to Macao in 1836, so pops have where to promote.
-Reshaped Guangdong a bit to fix map artifacts.

2017.03.24 22:56 mchief101 i literally don't know the skill of socializing due to anxiety. i have a hard time making friends and never went on a date in my life.

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great day! it's time to share my story with you as best i can. I'm currently 23 years old and i have been battling anxiety.
A little about me, MY PAST and how anxiety has developed in my life:
  • I grew up on a Caribbean island (Trinidad & tobago) and i was a normal kid with no anxiety thoughts up until entering high school.
  • As an 11 year old asian kid, i was a minority in an all boys school with 95% blacks and indians. from there on till end of high school, i was bullied every single day about my looks/flaws. There were two parts of bullying, mental and physical and the MENTAL PART was mostly name calling ; "you are so ugly dude", "your head is very big", "ching chong", "you are so fat, join jenny craig please" "dude your head is soooo big". After the mental part then followed the PHYSICAL PART of it, where i was always slapped on the back of my head by bigger guys (i couldn't do anything, i was helpless and teachers didn't help), being kicked and punched randomly while walking around school, being picked up and thrown around at times.
  • at HOME, my dad hasn't really been there for me.. as in he has provided me with all the necessities to live BUT he was a VERY VERY ANGRY person who would go out of control when triggered. At times, i was physically abused (being punched on the head and a fan thrown at me) and other times i was mentally abused with curse words and how i'm a worthless son and a cunt etc and yes by my dad...... (i wished death on him at one point). During those times, i never had that father and son relationship, i was always just scared of him and would mostly talk to my mom. my mom was also abused by him for years.
  • These are the most crucial years of life, from 11-18 years old, my mind was developing into adolescence and when my social environment was what i described above, its no wonder i am someone who suffers with anxiety/depression. People who think its easy to overcome have no idea what i went through.
THE RESULT / PRESENT :
  • I literally have 0 friends and it's so hard for me to make friends, I'm not sure why but its like people already have an established group of friends or they are simply uninterested in me and put on a fake attitude when i talk to them. I'm never that guy people contact first to hang out and if i make the first move, they usually have "other plans". when i see them face to face again, we talk but then afterwards its silence...months can go by and not one person would even check up on me.
  • I've never been on a date/hung out with a girl nor have i had a girlfriend in my 23 yrs of life. This one hurts me so hard because i just feel ashamed of myself, i don't know the skill of talking to girls and i just have no idea what it feels like to be in a relationship. I try and try but it always ends up in the same cycle where the girl doesn't want to hang out with me, does not respond to texts or responds with 1 word answers. sometimes, they say yes to hang out but then never respond after that. I've even been blocked a few times and i don't recall doing anything weird or creepy... i try to be the nicest guy possible. i don't think a girl has ever liked me in my existence.
  • still suffering from anxiety, depression. Anxiety affects my job as i tend to stay quiet/shy alot, worry ALOT and always scared to talk to people, even talking to my boss takes alot out of me as i start stuttering with nervousness. i stay in alot, i can't look at people directly and i'm just always scared of people's judgements for some reason. i always feel like people are looking at me. i can't look people in the eye and have low self esteem issues for sure.
  • Depression makes me sad during night time as i stay at home with the occasional suicidal thoughts and have done drugs to self inflict myself.
  • currently taking gym classes to see if i can make friends there...up to now, people just come and go and seem so uninterested in being friends. i'm not sure if its just how the world is with all the social media and people rather spend time on their phones, therefore keeping to themselves. i just don't know how to go about it.
so all in all, i'm starting to give up on myself, accept that i will be alone with no friends, accept that yes i am someone who is shy, quiet and keeps to himself. also, no idea what i want to do for the rest of my life as i have no goals really.. my mind is just blank with no interest in things.

2017.03.01 22:18 bleakmidwinter Countdown to Kickoff 2017: Minnesota United FC

I'm posting this on supremelord's behalf as he thought we were up tomorrow. He wrote this almost this entire thing (I just made a couple corrections) so all credit goes to him.

Countdown to Kickoff 2017: Minnesota United FC

Welcome to the OpuLoons entry in the Countdown to Kickoff.

Basic info:

Full club name: Minnesota United FC, nickname “The Loons” f/k/a NSC Minnesota ThunderStarsUnited FC
Location: Minnesota. Specifically Minneapolis for at least the next year and a half. At some point, Saint Paul. Formerly Blaine.
Stadium: TCF Bank Stadium (current). We’re playing in a borrowed stadium for the time being.TCF Bank Stadium is the University of Minnesota’s football stadium. It’s turf (sorry). For most games it will likely be limited to just the lower bowl. Construction on the beautiful, gorgeous, opulent “Cloud City” (working name) is currently ongoing but being held up by a bankrupt grocery store. Several government entities are hard at work ensuring that our ownership group can spend 9 figures as fast as possible.
Head Coach: The man, the myth, the legend… Adrian Heath. You may remember Heath from such coaching stints as Burnley (96-97), Sheffield United (99), and also some terribly poor team from Orlando.
Captain: Vadim Demidov. The greatest player in league history named “Vadim,” “Demidov,” and “Vadim Demidov.” As of the date of this publishing, has conceded exactly 0 goals to MLS competition.

MNUFC Supporters Groups

OpuLoons: The self-described “Club for Select and Fancy Supporters,” the OpuLoons are the most recognizable supporters group of MNUFC. They firmly believe that they are the 1% in all respects, and are not afraid to ensure that everyone knows it. They are found sitting in expensive seats such as the first row near midfield, luxury boxes, and pitchside seating. www.opuloons.com
Dark Clouds: The Dark Clouds are the oldest and largest of the supporters groups. They have existed in some form since 2004, and have seen their membership swell in recent years as the transition to MLS became a reality. They occupy the seats on the east side of the stadium behind the goal, and are your typical stand all game, sing loudly, and make TIFOs type of group. www.dark-clouds.com
True North Elite: TNE is a schismatic group that exists as the louder, more boisterous, less refined cousin of the Dark Clouds. The break is largely due to a desire to be less rated-PG and more rated-R. They have a figurative army of flags, megaphones, and cheers, and a literal army of facial hair. The relationship between them and the Dark Clouds is sometimes chaotic but usually mutually beneficial. They also occupy the east side behind the goal. There are also many other Supporters Groups representing various regional areas in the state (e.g. Wolf’s Head in Duluth, MN), age groups (e.g. Loon’s Nest for family friendly fun), and other nonsense. No, I will not list them all out. Yes, I did intentionally leave your group out. If you weren’t seen on TV last year, then you didn’t make the list.

Forwards:

  • #21 - Christian Ramirez

Predicted Starting 11

Heath is known to prefer a 4-2-3-1, but the team has looked best so far this season in a formation that is best described as 4-4-2 or 4-2-2-2.
----------------Alvbåge---------------
Taylor-----Demidov----Calvo------Davis
---------Schüller-----Warner----------
Molino--------------------------Ibarra
--------J.Venegas-----Ramirez---------
Alvbågehas the GK job until his Visa application is denied, or he gets injured. Molino and Johan Venegas have gelled immediately and look to be a great attacking duo. There is significant upside in the depth up front, as Bashkim Kadrii, Josh Gatt, and Abu Danladi all seem likely to get plenty of time this season. Some will question why Ibarra and Ramirez start (more below).
The holding mids and CBs seem pretty set in stone. There is a lot of excitement around the pair of Demidov and Calvo, who are both high salary players with strong credentials. Schüllerand Warner haven’t been outstanding, but they are the clear first choice to hold down the fort in front of the back four.
The biggest question is at fullback. Thiesson will almost assuredly be the starting RB once his visa is approved. Until that time Jermaine Taylor, despite looking horrendous during the preseason, seems destined to start and screw something up early. Justin Davis (NASL callup) seems the most likely starting LB right now. Kevin Venegas (not to be confused with “Johnny Vegas” Johan Venegas) would be preferred at RB until Thiesson is available, but hasn’t featured much with the first team.

History

Instead of recapping last year in the NASL, I’ll instead tell you about MNUFC as a franchise, as the story is chaotic and more interesting than reading 3 paragraphs of “fuck the New York Cosmos.”
In 1990, the Minnesota Thunder were formed. The team was coached by the legendary Buzz Lagos and played at the National Sports Center (NSC or "Nessie") in Blaine, Minnesota (suburb north of Minneapolis). It was an independent team scheduling various friendlies against other regional competition. In 1993 the Thunder joined the US Interregional Soccer League (later becoming the USL). They competed in the A-League from 1997 to 2004, winning the title in 1999. They finished runner-up in 1998, 2000, and 2003. In 2005 the team joined the USL First Division. This was also the last year Buzz Lagos coached the team. His 16 year record was 324-148-46.
From 2006-2008 the team was coached by Amos Magee, who is now the Director of Player Personnel for MNUFC. Magee is also the all-time leading scorer in Thunder history. From 2008-2009 the team was coached by Don Gramenz.
In December 2009, facing financial difficulties, the owner took off and left the team to die. NSC stepped in and hired the front office and players and created the NSC Minnesota Stars. Basically same team, different entity. Manny Lagos (son of the legendary Buzz Lagos) was named the Coach. The team moved into the D2 Pro League in 2010 before moving into the NASL in 2011.
In 2011 the NASL announced that NSC did not meet their ownership criteria. The NASL committed to owning the team for 3 years. The team won the 2011 NASL Soccer Bowl 3-1 on aggregate. In 2012 the team changed names again, dropping NSC and becoming Minnesota Stars FC. The team once again reached the NASL Soccer Bowl, but this time lost 3-2 on aggregate.
The NASL gave the team a deadline on October 27, 2012 to find a new ownership group in order to ensure a place in the 2013 NASL. Ultimately, a well placed request from current team President Nick Rodgers led to Dr. Bill McGuire purchasing the team from the NASL. The team was again renamed to Minnesota United FC, and Dr. McGuire immediately set his sights on obtaining an MLS franchise for his new club.
The team spent the next 4 years building itself into an MLS-ready soccer club. In 2015 they were awarded an MLS franchise and secured a site for their future soccer stadium in St. Paul. 2016 was MNUFC’s farewell to the NASL. Manny Lagos stepped down as Coach to become Sporting Director, and was replaced by longtime assistant Carl Craig.

Key Players

Johan Venegas - Full name Johan Alberto Venegas Ulloa. Nickname “Johnny Vegas.” The Costa Rican international (32 caps) made 32 appearances for Montreal since 2015, but only managed to score two goals. However, most of that time was spent on the wing. Minnesota has indicated heavily they will play him up top, either in conjunction with Christian Ramirez or as a lone striker. He has flourished in this role during the preseason, and has relished playing up top for Costa Rica in the last 12 months (4 goals). If his form stays this way, he will easily score 10-15 goals.
Kevin Molino - The international from Trinidad and Tobago (35 caps) played under Heath in Orlando the last 6 years. He joins Minnesota after the largest “Straight Cash, Homey” trade for allocation money in league history. He has immediately fallen into a partnership with J. Venegas, and has scored several goals this preseason. If he can play at this level, and not let the chatter about the transfer fee get to him, he can also score 10+ goals.
Josh Gatt - The former US international has had approximately one thousand knee surgeries, each one more gruesome than the last. His latest one was apparently the result of a doctor screwing up a previous ACL surgery, and the ACL attaching not to the bone but the PCL. Despite the string of injuries, he is still a pacey wing and will likely feature prominently.
Christian Ramirez (F), Miguel Ibarra (M), Justin Davis (D), and Kevin Venegas (D) - These are the four players from MNUFC’s NASL days that will most likely start the first few games. There will be intense pressure on all of them to prove that they “belong” in MLS. Ramirez is a pure striker, a true #9, and his effectiveness will be measured in goals. Ibarra is a capped US international, but he is constantly dogged by questions of whether he is good enough. There is a wealth of young talent behind him on the depth chart, so don’t be surprised if he becomes a super sub. Davis and K. Venegas were the first 2 players signed to the team, but neither has been dominant this preseason as they adjust to the league.

Perceived Rivals

Atlanta United - First off, there is nothing United about Atlanta. Second, they chose that name even though we were an already existing club with that name, and the best jerseys and crest in US soccer. Third, and most importantly, Georgia BBQ is terrible, and Georgia mustard is an abomination posing as a poor man’s fraudulent BBQ sauce. So seriously, screw Atlanta. We will end you.
Sporting Kansas City - After Atlanta, our biggest perceived rival should be KC. Chicago is closer geographically, but they suck. And Chicago deep dish pizza is stupid. Nobody orders pizza and goes “You know what I really want? A bunch of extra bread!” Enough about Chicago. KC is our geographic rival because they are within driving distance. I’m pretty sure we hate them. KC has delicious barbecue that we will eat in gluttonous amounts before and after we beat them 3 times this year. You can take our money, but you’ll never take our points! Also, Overland Park is a wasteland. Tumbleweed; ravenous coyotes and other scavengers; suburban-style consumer goods sellers; and all other commonly accepted symbols of despair.
Portland Timbers - Portland is basically trying really, really hard to be the Minnesota of the West Coast. They don’t understand satire, farce, sarcasm, caricature, parody, or comedy. The only thing they do well is lose to Seattle They were terrible when we beat them in the NASL, they were terrible when we beat them in the USL, and they will continue to be terrible when we beat them in MLS.
New York Cosmos - Not an MLS team. Doesn’t matter. Fuck the Cosmos.

Prognosis for upcoming season

If this team has demonstrated anything in the preseason, it is that Heath has abandoned his previous tendencies and adopted a Denny Green-style of play, namely “The best defense is more offense.” MNUFC should be fun to watch in the attacking third, but unless they shore up the questions at FB, they will also concede several goals. The team’s success will hinge on winning games by a score of 3-2.

(Realistic) Best case/Worst Case scenario

Best case scenario - Make the playoffs. If it wants to, the team has plenty of ammo to fuel it this season. Articles questioning whether it will be the worst team in MLS history will no doubt fire up the players, especially the NASL callups. They’ve shown they can score goals, and a team that can score quickly should win its fair share of games. Squeaking into the playoffs during its inaugural season would be a great accomplishment.
Worst case scenario - Trump’s disastrous economic policy causes the OpuLoons’ return on investment to drop into the single digits, the Dark Clouds can’t find anyone to volunteer to make their TIFOs so they recruit a local kindergarten, TNE get a touchline ban for saying a naughty word, and the team’s shambolic defense is shambolic. Without any DPs or all-star names, last place in the conference is the worst case scenario.

Overview of last season.

What if I told you....that a team would lose both of its star players over the course of the season, be relying on a rookie for their main source of offense, have a starting defender miss most of the season with an ACL tear, switch coaches mid-season, be in 9th place in their conference 60% of the war through the year....and still win it all?
This season could, in my totally 100% unbiased opinion, get sold as a new 30-for-30. It has the lowest of lows in Oba bailing for China chasing one more paycheck, and Clint being sidelined with a heart disease, and Valdez finding every possible way to miss the net. It has the highest of highs in Jordan Morris coming into his own, Nico Lodeiro dialing up his show phone, Nelson Valdez scoring the redemption goal in the knockout rounds, and in Brian Schmetzer taking over his hometown club once more and leading them into the record pages, and in Zach Scott; Man Marker retiring as an MLS Cup Champion.
The season started out with the disappointing CCL quarterfinals, where Seattle took the aggregate lead multiple times, each time to let Club America tie it up within 5 minutes before eventually succumbing to the onslaught in the Azteca. Seattle then proceeded to lose their first three games by one goal margins, including one to the Whitecaps as a result of two bogus penalties called by Mark Geiger.
Seattle then rallied by going 4-1-1 in their next 6 games, with Jordan Morris getting his first 4 goals in the stretch, two of which were game-winners. They then proceeded to go 2-8-1 in their next 11 games, culminating in an extremely lackluster 3-0 loss to Sporting KC that only yielded one shot, not even on frame, that didn't happen until the last 10 minutes of the game. Notable events in this time included the emergence of Cristian Roldan as one of the rising CMs in the league, a Baby Honey Badger, if you will, and a completely out of nowhere 5-0 drubbing of a then 1st-place FC Dallas' B-Team on a Wednesday night.
The week between that SKC game and the game vs LA the following Sunday was very busy indeed. On Tuesday, Sigi Schmid, the teams only head coach from their inception into MLS in 2009 to then, agreed to part ways with the club, and assistant Brian Schmetzer, who coached and played for the team back in the days before MLS was given the title of Interim Head Coach. On Wednesday, new Designated Player and Uruguayan international fringe starter Nicolas Lodeiro was signed from Boca Juniors of Argentina. On Thursday, Alvaro Fernandez, a former Uruguay teammate of Lodeiro and former Sounder from 2011 signed a new contract with the team, giving more depth on the wings and central midfield. On Friday night, Jordan Morris and Clint Dempsey arrived back from the All-Star break, and on Saturday, they had exactly 1 practice with their new teammates before all starting together in a 1-1 draw with the Galaxy that kicked off an incredible 8-2-4.
Highlights from the tail end of the regular season included a 3-1 victory over Orlando, courtesy of a Dempsey hat trick, a 4-2 victory over LA, which was Jordan Morris' big "Hey world, I'm coming for you" game, and the regular season finale vs. RSL, which featured some of the smoothest passing this team has put together, especially on the first goal.
Sadly, after a 3-1 home win over Portland on August 21st in which he scored a brace, Clint Dempsey was sidelined due to an irregular heartbeat, and the club and Deuce decided to play it safe and go in for surgery, which put Clint out of action for the remainder of the season. (Luckily he's made a full recovery and is back for 2017!)
Playoffs seemed like an impossibility as late as mid-August, but somehow Schmetzer kept the team motivated and fighting to the final whistle of the final game and a home berth for the knockout round was secured. Round 1 was played vs SKC in a very, very heated game that was decided in the 88th minute on that redemption goal by Nelson Valdez.
The Western Conf. Semifinals against the odds-on favorites to win the Cup, FC Dallas was decided with a 3-0 victory in Seattle featuring another goal from Valdez, and a brace from Lodeiro all in a 10-minute time span, and by a 2-1 "loss" in Frisco
The Western Conference Finals against Colorado started off badly in leg 1, going down in the first 20 minutes thanks to a goal by Kevin Doyle, before goals from Morris and Lodeiro gave Seattle a slim 2-1 lead heading into leg 2, where another Morris goal sent Seattle to its first MLS Cup Final appearance ever, against Toronto FC, another first-time contender and the first Canadian team to make it to the final.
The Final was insane. The atmosphere at BMO Field was intense, even watching from a Buffalo Wild Wings in the middle of nowhere. It was cold, the Sounders came in battered and bruised, with Ozzie Alonso suffering from a knee injury that he played through, Jordan Morris still recovering from a nasty tackle by MacMath in the Western Finals and Oalex Anderson tearing his ACL the day before the match in practice. 90 minutes could not decide a victor, with Toronto throwing everything including the kitchen sink and Seattle taking it all in stride. Extra time was more of the same, coming down to Stefan Frei making one of the best saves in the history of the league to keep the teams locked at 0.
Penalties were needed. Seattle did it
#ThisMoment, as the marketing teams had been promoting all postseason, had finally arrived. The trophy that had eluded the team for so long was finally coming back to the Emerald City.
Also, butt tattoo

Seriously though.....30 for 30 material folks.

Key Players

STEFAN FREI: The Saint of Allstatten, the man who can do no wrong, it's the MLS Cup Final MVP himself! Early on in the season, Frei single-handedly kept us in matches we had no business even being in, and when the rest of the team started to click and take off, so did he. He went from being an above-average keeper to one of, if not the best in the league, as demonstrated by his 90% save percentage in the playoffs, only letting in three goals off of thirty shots over the course of 6 games. People will overlook Frei because he isn't the flashiest keeper or making ridiculous saves all the time, but that's because he doesn't have to. Frei reads the game exceptionally well and rarely gets caught out of position or off his line. When needed to step up, he steps up big and puts his body on the line to get a result secured.
CHAD MARSHALL: This guy is to MLS defenders what Landon Donovan was to attackers. He could've been successful in Europe, but chose to stay here, and I think he should have the Defender of the Year award, which he's won three times by the way, named after him when he retires(you with me on this Crew fans?). Even at his old age he still has the hops to knock in 4 goals in the season and remains a huge threat on every set piece taken by Seattle. Isn't afraid to go to ground when needed, but would rather use his strength to muscle attackers off the ball. Can be beat by speed, but positions himself well to counteract that.
OSVALDO ALONSO: All hail the One True Honey Badger. Vying for the title of best defensive mid in the league with Bradley, Ozzie doesn't care who you are, he will just plow your over to get the ball. Hailing from the island nation of Cuba, the tenacious D-Mid plays hard, lunging in on tackles, throws his weight around and will resort to a little gamesmanship if provoked by the opposition. His temper has resulted in a few ejections, most recently against new teammate Will Bruin while the latter was with Houston last year. Possibly has a contractual obligation to unleash a cannon of a shot once per game, most of the time landing somewhere near Fairbanks, but occasionally landing in Miami or the back of the net. One of the two original MLS Sounders remaining on the roster, Ozzie is a fan favorite due to his passion and energy on the field. Look for him to challenge for a spot on the Best XI this season.
NICOLAS LODEIRO: The Uruguayan playmaker was the weight that tipped the balance of fate to Seattle's favor last year. Nominally a winger when everyone is healthy, Nico's position is more accurately described as "by the ball" wherever it is, he's probably near by wanting a piece of the action. Whether that means hes playing give and goes with the fullbacks or back with Marshall and Torres trying to dispossess the forwards, he's gonna be there. Lodeiro has an insane workrate for a playmaker, especially in this league, and that, combined with his wickedly curving dead balls and pinpoint passes, are what make him stand out from the crowd in MLS.
EDIT: I can't believe I forgot this, but Lodeiro has the awesome nickname of Poseidon. This came about due to u/itsallgoodie's posting of an article about Lodeiro's imminent signing. But the best thing about the name Lodeiro is that it autocorrects to Poseidon. And if you title something with autocorrect in it, you're SOL. Thankfully this was the one time autocorrect has worked in anyone's favor and considering the Poseidon is the god of the SEA, we over at SoundersFC just rolled with it. He was even informed of the nickname a few weeks later through a translator and apparently loved it. It was also used by MLS in some of the postseason hype videos, so for once we can truly say: WE DID IT REDDIT!
CLINT DEMPSEY: The Deuce is loose! That's right ladies and gentlemen, Captain America is back on the saddle after going through surgery to fix an irregular heartbeat discovered in August. Showing a little bit of rust this preseason, mostly in his final ball, Clint looks to be well on the track to being the player he was at last summer's Copa America. If he can stay healthy and plays ~28 games this season, expect him to put up DP level numbers.
JORDAN MORRIS: The Mercer Island Magician is back for season 2 in Seattle! The reigning Rookie of the Year is looking to build off of last year's 12g/4a regular season and smash past the sophomore slump. With Clint back, a lot of defensive focus will be lifted from him, and as a result, he'll be more free to go and get into the kinds of spaces that Lodeiro loves sending balls into. Expect to see him around the same number of goals and more assists with him pinging balls with Dempsey around the box

Prognosis for upcoming season

Heading into 2017 the Sounders have to be in serious contention to threaten for a repeat. They have the depth to make a serious push into the playoffs even if injuries do happen again, and the roster is the perfect mix of veteran savvy and youthful energy.
18-10-6, 60 pts, 1st in the West, SS winners. Oh, and we win the Cascadia Cup too.

Best Case

Seattle becomes the first team in MLS history to bag the Treble. This is most likely to happen if Garth goes out and grabs a player like Honda, in either window, and the team gets off to a hot start, and can keep some semblance of momentum happening through the summer.

Worst Case

Deuce's heart issues come back, Jordan attracts the interest of a big club and wants to go, our older guys get badly hurt and we crash out of playoff contention very early on.
E: for spelling and a dank nickname

2016.11.08 21:33 go-travel 10 weeks caribbean island hopping free giveaway

To be honest: That's only half the story 😜but continue reading.. My name is thomas i am 25 years old and german. I try to spend as much time as possible traveling to see and discover the world.
About 1.5 years ago i met a girl from mexico in some grumpy hostel in bratislava. We became friends and a bit more. And although there is a hugh distance between our countries we managed to see each other several times. even if it was just 3 days, which actually didn't make sence to fly to mexico for 3 days but anyways. At the beginning of this summer she kind of moved in to my place ro see how it works out to live together. So far so good. In august we booked flights for 10 weeks caribbean island hopping next year but as things continuously went wrong it was necessary to stop this whatever it was in the end. Guess that's called trial and error.
Unfortunately it's neither possible to cancle the flights nor to change the name for most of them. Nevertheless someone could possibly use them. It would be a waste to let them expire. We shouldn't pay airlines for nothing ;)
So if your name or a friends' friends name is by any chance

2016.08.26 18:25 TheOlympiad [Event] The Games of the XXXV Olympiad: Singapore 2032

The Games of the XXXV Olympiad

On August 9th, the world came together for two weeks of sportsmanship, competition, and friendship at the Games of the XXXV Olympiad.

Ceremony and Facilities:

Opening ceremony: Celebrations in the city of Singapore actually began more than three hours before the official opening of the Olympics with the beginning of the Singapore National Day Parade (NDP) as the opening of the Olympic Games coincided with the date of Singapore's independence. Beginning at the National Stadium, where only hours later the Opening Ceremony would officially begin, the Marchpast, Mobile Column, and additional parade components left the Stadium for the route through the city. The parade followed a route through the city centre, gathering massive crowds of both native Singaporers and the visiting fans, who marveled at the parade and the show. Returning to the National Stadium, the Parade merged seamlessly into the Opening Ceremony. Shirley Ng of the renowned Red Lion parachute team, and the first ever woman to dive with the team at the 2014 NDP, lit the Olympic torch after a spectacular team parachute dive through a spectacular daylight fireworks display which included recreations of the Singapore skyline and the merlion symbol of the city. Ng and her team, representing, all of the cultural groups that make up Singapore's rich history, dropped through the open "mouth" of the merlion to land in the middle of the field to the applause of the crowd.
The Opening Ceremony was beautiful crafted around the Singapore 2032 motto of "Together, Hand in Hand," including dance, song, and performances from the various cultures of Singapore, each in turn from a various spot scattered across the Stadium Field. Then, seamlessly, they merged together into one unified group in a beautiful rendition of We are Singapore, showing the pride their nation had in being the nation to bring the Olympics to southeast Asia and the success of their home. Today there were no Chinese, Malay, Indian, or Eurasian. Today there was only one Singapore, joined together and hosting the world in their home.
The Opening Ceremony continued into the night with performances and appearances from a number of Singaporean celebrities and officials including JJ-Lin, Kit Chan, and many others together with a combination fireworks-LED projection show across the Singaporean skyline that could reportedly be seen from miles out to sea. A full LED show accompanied by dancers, showed an interpretation of Singapore's growth as a nation. Starting from a projection of the outlines of the once small, war-torn fishing village, they grew to show the now bright and shining glory of the modern Singapore skyline.
Culminating the Opening Ceremony was a moving speech by Singaporean Prime Minister Cho Poh Kuan where he announced what he called "Singapore's celebration of unity and peaceful competition." He additionally mentioned how proud Lee Kuan Yew, the first Prime Minister and who many consider the nation's founding father, to see their prosperous nation hold this stage and stand before the world in all its successes since independence.
Facilities: With a flurry of construction and funding from Singapore, as well as cooperation from Indonesia, Malaysia, and Chile, the 2032 Games take place in some of the most modern facilities to date. Facilities were spread across the city-state were a series of different facilities some newly constructed and recently renovated. Additional games would be played at football stadiums in both Malaysia and Indonesia. Visiting athletes and fans were greeted by the massive Welcome to Singapore 2032 blimp the nation had rented from the Philippines
Not only that, a series of agreed transportation agreements linked the three nations together. While the Games themselves belonged to Singapore, it was all three who enjoyed the benefits and growing connection in the region. Efficient and quick, whether by air, land, or sea, transportation between different facilities was praised by the world as as visitors descended into the city-state for all parts of the Games. Efforts and agreements by Singaporean companies assured that the majority of seats were filled at all times, avoiding some of the embarrassing background shots of past Olympics where tickets awarded to businesses were often left vacant.
The athletes themselves raved about the Olympic Village, with none of the instagram shots of leaking ceilings and broken doors that plagued some previous Games. No, they enjoyed living in the 22 newest hall of residences in Nanyang Technological University which had been converted for the duration of the games Hosting slighly more than 13,000 athletes and staffs, the made liberal use of the world-class facilities including the clubhouse, swimming pools, Jacuzzi, restaurants, bowling alleys, gyms, BBQ pits, theatre, and a sand volleyball court that doubled as the greatest limbo court the Jamaican team could put together whenever a party broke out. A handwritten sign posted in the sand next to it read "It's too low. Ya backbone can't take it!"
Athletes also enjoyed the complimentary welcome packs provided by the Singaporean government, though more condoms needed to be ordered only a day and a half into the games. They were, however, promptly delivered and the festivities continued.

Criticisms:

Indochina: The primary criticism of the Singapore Games came from Indochina, who boycotted the 2032 Summer Games. Citing the incitement of rebels within Indochina by Singapore and other ASEAN nations along with unspecified security and safety concerns, the Indochinese statement was:
We will not send any of our people to the land of scums.
Crime and punishment: The only other major criticism of the Singapore Games came from Singapore's uniquely hardline laws. Many nations had foreigners who attended the games and received (in their opinion) exceedingly large fines for assorted offenses, though the Singapore government never able to fully accomplish their ban on chewing gum at the games.
However, these led to particularily difficult situations when foreigners (both fans and athletes) were caught for vandalism, public drunkenness, or drug related offenses. Singapore has been historically hardline in meting out punishments for these offenses. Ranging from public canings to the death sentence for the most extreme cases.
While many of the matters were settled outside of court, there still remains the following issues between the Singapore judicial system and an assortment of foreign nationals.
  • Ronald Garrison, American citizen, 37. Charged with illegally transporting a large amount drugs (marijuana) into the country with intent to sell. The evidence is present at Mr. Garrison attempted to smuggle a large amount of marijuana into Singapore through his luggage as well as contact information of informants working with the Singapore government to act as witness to Garrison's intent to sell.

Events, athletes, teams, and nations of note:

  • Nations receiving the first Olympic Medal: Bhutan, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Guinea, Lesotho, Palestine, Saint Lucia
  • American athlete Boomer Phelps, son of decorated American swimmer Michael Phelps, competes in his first Olympics. Phelps, a full three years younger than his father was at his first Olympics, took one gold and two silver medals in individual swimming events.
  • The host nation of Singapore saw a marked effect of hosting the games with more Gold medal wins than ever seen before. Particular of note was the extremely beloved Singaporean Mens Swimmers. Inspired by the success of Joseph Schooling in the 2016 Olympics over Michael Phelps, the nation had seen a renewed interest in the sport, taking home 3 swimming Golds, two for individual events and one in the Mens 4x100m relay as well as a silver in the Mens 400x butterfly with a close second behind Boomer Phelps.
  • Men's basketball: For years, the world had been saying the US Olympic Men's basketball team was getting better and better, winning the Gold by ever higher margins of points. However, what some pointed to instead was that the wider world was just getting worse. This changed when a number of Baltic nations, particularly Lithuania, had a revival of interest in the game. After having slowly closed the point gap in subsequent Olympics, the Gold Medal game of Singapore 2032 found Lithuania facing off against their sometimes training partner and friendly scrimmage partners, the United States. Unleashing their secret weapon, the 7'0" Zigmantas "Chaos Dunk" Jovarauskas, the match was long and physical, coming down to the final penalty shot by the often overlooked 5'7" Kristoforas Girskis. Sinking the shot, Lithuania took the Gold 98-97.
  • Fiji took home an Olympic Gold, but not in Rugby Sevens as they expected, where they instead took the Bronze (Gold went to Conor Sur). Instead Fiji's pride was the unexpected judo champion Enemuo Ifeajuna, a humble man of few words, monstrous strength, and one of the widest smiles known to mankind.
  • Australasia enjoyed fair success in medal counts, but won an even greater victory through their offer to the recently independent nations of New Caledonia, Polynesia, and Wallis and Futuna to allow their athletes to participate as part of the national team while their own nations develop their NOCs. While their added medals amounted to a single Silver, the support Australiasia has shown to the nations of the Pacific will surely be remembered.
  • While the aged Lionel Messi brought a lot of heart to the Cono Sur football team, they were unable to achieve a medal in Mens Football. At mentioned previously, they instead brought home a Gold from Rugby as well as another from Sailing, bringing success and pride from their nation recovering from their recent war and will remain the pride of the nation as it continues to grow.
  • Ghana invested heavily in their Olympics team with the recent economic windfall their nation has seen. While the effort was successful in bring medals home, one silver and three bronze, the gold eluded the African nation this time, though they will surely continue to focus their efforts to bring home a Gold in the near future. Especially now that they can afford the training and equipment necessary for increasingly competitive athletes in the future.
  • For the first Olympic medal, Bosnia certain made it count. While the small Balkan nation only brought home a single gold, they made it count. The pride of Bosnia, Womens Shotputter Sabiha Sarajlić will surely return home to the a nation full of gratitude for showing their place on the world's stage.
  • While the inclusion of the aging but charismatic Cristiano Ronaldo was a great moral boost to the Portuguese nation, they were unable to capitalize on this boost to bring home the large medal count they had hoped, only a single Bronze in the Equestrian Individual Jumping by Sebastião Freire, Gonçalo Gouveia, Daniel Oliveira, and Valentin Fernandes in the Men's Kayak Four 1000m. However, while athletically the Portuguese did not take home their hoped result, they earned the respect of the world and a commendation by the IOC for their sportsmenship. After an accident in the Sailing event left the 2nd place Chinese team's boat wrecked and the team thrown into the water, rather than pass the Portuguese team immediately stopped to help, perhaps saving the life of Luo Qingshan who had been knocked unconscious by the dropping mast in the accident.
  • As might be expected now from the east African nations, the ESU's two gold medals came from track events, especially the longer distances. Dinha Mekonen Tewodros set a blistering time in the Womens 20km walk while Robel Admassu Tesfay brought home the ESU's 2nd Gold in the Mens 5000 km. In the marathon, Teka Tolla Yerga was edged out in the final 200m, falling to third and bring home the Bronze.
  • Uzbekistan enjoyed an Olympic success moderate success at the 2032 Games taking home 1 gold and 6 bronze medals. The Uzbek gold was brought home by Magomed Gaibnazarov, the spry and sprightly young boxer who will be sure to continue to be a commanding presence in future games to come.
  • Though sending a smaller than usual team to the 2032 Games, Brazil continued to enjoy the benefits of a strong history of sportsmanship in the nation, taking home 8 golds, 3 silvers, and 7 bronzes.
We thank Singapore for hosting these most wonderful of Games. They have truly shown the world that they are a nation of excellency and progress. They have shown through example the success a nation can achieve with its people working together for the good of the nation. Singapore will surely enjoy the benefits these Games have brought the nation for years to come.
[M] Special thanks to stupiddroid and aswlwlwl for all their help putting this together. They have been invaluable in design and details and I hope that this makes a good start to a continuing trend of GSim Olympics!
[M] Also, before anyone asks, at this point my code is not able to model the results of individual events, so before you ask "Who won the Floor Gymnastics?" or "What were all the events the US got gold in?" or "Hey, why don't the numbers add up?" Sorry, this is about the best the code can do for now. Down the road a ways I might continue to tinker around but this is what I can give you for now. Just enjoy the games and don't think too hard about things. Thanks gang. Citius, Altius, Fortius.
edit: caught a typing mistake I made in transferring the medal counts over. Conor Sur was 2,2,1 not 0,2,1 Thanks!
