Meet The Next Mayor Of Helena

Canada Goose canada goose outlet reviews Jackets There were canada goose outlet orlando a lot of firsts in this past Tuesday’s local elections, bringing Democrats canada goose outlet germany to power across canada goose outlet location the country. canada goose outlet boston And in Helena, Mont., a first time candidate beat a 16 year incumbent. Mayor elect Wilmot Collins ran in a nonpartisan race. But he campaigned on a progressive platform. He’s a Liberian refugee, a father of two and a member canada goose outlet in new york of the Navy Reserve. And he joins me now from Helena. Welcome to the program. There are a lot of people who, I think, right now are trying to figure out what these Democratic wins mean for the broader political landscape. I’d like to get your canada goose jacket outlet sale thoughts on why you think you won. Canada Goose Jackets

Canada Goose sale COLLINS: I knocked on doors and I spoke with the voters. And they resonated with my platform. And I canada goose outlet uk fake guess that was part of the reason I won. And it’s also possible that they wanted a change. canada goose outlet price Canada Goose sale

Canada Goose Outlet GARCIA NAVARRO: What platform specifically did you run on? What were canada goose outlet shop you hearing from canada goose outlet ontario the voters? And what were you promising them? Canada Goose Outlet

Canada Goose Coats On Sale COLLINS: I ran on funding, trying to fund the providers of essential services like our police and our firefighters because we realize that there have been many occasions where our firefighters had not been able to answer calls when they were canada goose outlet uk sale called upon because they were short staffed. There’d been occasions where they had to delay canada goose canada goose online store factory outlet toronto location their calls because they were short staffed. And so I went out and started campaigning on providing funding for essential services and curbing our veterans and teenage homelessness. And canada goose outlet vip it resonated with the voters. Canada Goose Coats On Sale

uk canada goose GARCIA canada goose outlet online store review NAVARRO: Yeah. Did you mention Trump? I mean, was President Trump on people’s minds, or did you try and avoid it? uk canada goose

canada goose COLLINS: You know, it didn’t come up once, not once. Once or twice, someone would ask about immigration and refugees. And I would tell them, I’ll give them my honest opinion about it and we’ll move on. But the president didn’t come up. canada goose

Canada Goose Online GARCIA NAVARRO: You are a former refugee. You came to this country from Liberia. There’s been a lot of scrutiny about that process. President Trump has obviously come out very strongly against bringing in refugees from certain countries. He’s restricted the number. How did you address that during the campaign? Canada canada goose outlet seattle Goose Online

canada goose factory sale COLLINS: You know, it came up but not much. But all I have to say is that we’re talking about refugees in almost 50 states. And I’ve been fortunate to have met a lot of professionals. And I’m not going to say all of us were top notch people. There are going to be some people who will fall by the wayside, who will fall through the cracks. But I’ve met doctors. I’ve met nurses. I’ve met lawyers. I’ve met teachers. I’ve met poets. I’ve met historians. Those are the people that are contributing to our economy. And for you to blanket all of us into one group of undesirables, you know, it’s painful. canada goose factory sale

canadian goose jacket GARCIA NAVARRO: I’m curious about how you view the situation in Montana. Montana canada goose jacket outlet uk voted overwhelmingly for Trump. Do you think your haydar-furniture election was an anomaly in a liberal enclave, which Helena is? Or can your message reach people on the other side of this divided country? canadian goose jacket

canada goose store COLLINS: Yes, I think it can if it’s properly portrayed because we and I canada goose outlet parka always go back to canada goose outlet phone number this. We have to educate our constituents. canada goose store

canada canada goose outlet belgium goose clearance sale I’ve lived here 23 years in Helena. And believe me, I’ve seen canada goose jacket outlet toronto it all. And I can still say that, hey, my community voted me in. It says a lot that people are willing to listen. And people are willing to learn. But who are the messengers? The messengers will have to have thick skin. You will get those insults. You will get everything. But keep your composure. Be patient. And they’re listening. But, sometimes, it’s hard to accept the facts. canada goose clearance sale

canada goose canada goose outlet winnipeg uk black friday COLLINS: Initially. I know when I first canada goose outlet los angeles moved into this community, we had people mark my home with KKK, go back to Africa. But the one thing my neighbor who did they got together and they washed my wall down. canada goose uk black friday

canada goose uk outlet You’ve seen racist stuff all over the country. But the reaction to mine was unique. And that says a lot about my community. That says a lot about where I live. That says a lot about the people of this Helena community. canada goose uk outlet

canada goose black friday sale GARCIA NAVARRO: Wilmot Collins, mayor elect of Helena, Mont., thank you so much for joining us. canada goose black friday sale

canada canada goose outlet 2015 goose uk shop COLLINS: Thanks for having me, Lulu. canada goose uk shop

canada goose black friday sale No, I think I got it canada goose outlet eu correct (other than the missing “or”). The wording is just a bit cumbersome.

cheap Canada Goose While you raging, any creature within 5 feet of you that hostile to you has disadvantage on attack rolls against targets other than you or another character with this feature. An enemy is immune to this effect if it can see or hear you or if it can be frightened. cheap Canada Goose

Canada Goose online People started getting disinterested and drifting off, because it was going to be 5 10 minutes before their canada goose outlet store calgary turn would come around. Then, because they weren paying attention, they need a minute after their turn canada goose outlet washington dc came up Canada Goose Outlet to decide their action. This made each turn even slower, and it compounded from there. Canada Goose online

canada goose coats Ways to canada goose outlet us fix this: get turns to move rapidly! Keep the pace up with a high energy vibe. Give each person 30 seconds to describe their action, and don let things get bogged down in lengthy discussions. If the player takes more than a minute to describe what canada goose stockists uk they doing, tell them: “That so complex, you need more than six seconds to do it. We come back canada goose outlet online store review to the result canada goose outlet in vancouver of that next round.” canada goose parka outlet Stick to your judgments even if you not 100% sure about it, because the time penalty to reexamine the decision is always worse. If players bring canada goose outlet seattle up a point of order about something, “You right we have to remember that for next time. Moving on!” canada goose coats

canada goose And for the love of Pelor, have your players decide their actions before it their turn! It not your job to do all the calculations, make sure the party knows it their job to decide what they rolling and what their bonuses are. If it comes up to their turn and they murmur, “Uhhh what going on around me right now?” then it perfectly acceptable to respond, “Your character hasn been paying attention, so roll a Perception check.” Failure official canada goose outlet could mean they flat footed, dazed, lose an action, or whatever you feel is appropriate. canada goose

Canada Goose Parka That 10 foot wide hallway can feel mighty tight once you trying to squeeze seven people down it! One thing that became tiresome for https://www.expeditionparkaoutlets.ca us was pushing our way past all our allies just to reach an enemy for our turn. The press of canada goose outlet uk a 7 man crowd is very real, and if players start to get bogged up on each other then that a problem. Canada Goose Parka

canada goose coats Remember that players can move through allied squares and brush up on Acrobatics, look at your map and try to canada goose outlet in usa imagine choke points. Will there be so many melee players that they won all be able to face an enemy at once? Would the enemies use this to a tactical advantage? (Remember that without a rear guard, all those squishy casters at the back are vulnerable.) canada goose coats

canada goose clearance sale Remember that the action economy of D is mostly built around smaller groups. If you start to get huge crowds, they break that action economy. Just like being ambushed by 20 archers would be lethal to canada goose outlet official a party, so too a boss can be totally smashed apart by 7 PCs. canada goose clearance sale

canadian goose jacket Just buffing their HP isn going to do it alone, that will just make them into a tank and make the whole thing tiresome. I would encourage ways to make fights difficult, or ways for the enemies to shrug off debuffs. canadian goose jacket

Canada Goose Jackets Imagine this: a Monk manages to trip an enemy, and everyone else crowds around it. They roflstomp his head into the dirt one by one, and he can do anything about it. Standing up means eating a whole mountain of AOOs, and the canada goose parka outlet uk Monk can make several trip attempts per round with their Flurry of Blows. Canada Goose Jackets

canada goose How can you prevent this from being the way every fight pans out? You could add some debilitating measures that make it impossible for the players to ever bring their full damage to bear in a fight. canada goose outlet online reviews (I imagining a tanglefoot bag, but made of semi cooled lava: the player takes some burn damage, then needs to deal X amount of damage to the rocks before they free to move again) canada goose

canadian goose jacket I look over the rules for encounter leveling, calculate your party level with 7 players, then increase the number of enemies appropriately. Ambush the players. Force them into lose lose tactical situations. Give the enemies escape routes that the PCs cannot follow, so they can regroup and attack canada goose outlet miami again later. Try to sunder canada goose outlet germany their weapons, or break their armor, anything to ensure canada goose outlet in montreal that they not fighting at full force canadian goose jacket.

discount moncler outlet Yearbook Photography Tips From a Professional Photographer discount moncler outlet

moncler coats sale Best Yearbook Photography Tips Keep It Personal moncler coats sale

Official Moncler Outlet Yearbook photography is all about creating memories. Generally, it’s broken down into two categories: portraits and candids. Yearbook portraits are your basic head and shoulders portrait photo. Ideally these cheap moncler sale are done in a studio and feature consistent lighting, poses and backgrounds. The idea is to create a gallery of images that helps the yearbook owner remember his or her classmates over the years. These photos are also where classmates can sign their names and leave their thoughts about the yearbook owner. Generally, this part of the photography is handled by the yearbook company, which then makes its profits through selling senior portrait packages to the students discount moncler jackets it photographs. Official Moncler Outlet

moncler outlet canada Candid photographs, on the other hand, are often shot by the school community (although sometimes the yearbook company will also provide candid photography). It moncler sale online can be the high school prom, the college formal, or even a military social (I’ve edited and shot for high school, college and military yearbooks over the years). In each case it’s important to understand that photographing such events calls for capturing images that do more than just show people. moncler outlet canada

moncler outlet kids Formal dress is expensive, flashy and colorful and makes for moncler womens jackets great images. It’s important to capture the gowns, tuxedos and uniforms and show the wearer’s pride in their outfits. In some areas (Southern New Jersey, for instance) the custom is for the high school girls to give an impromptu fashion show for parents and friends outside the venue. Be prepared to get some images of them strutting for their audience. Wide angle lenses can capture the dress and the crowd, just make sure your primary subject is close to the camera so she dominates the frame. moncler outlet kids

moncler outlet online Speaking https://www.kinkhost.com of showing off, don’t forget that participants often rent limousines (either singularly or by pitching in). Make sure to capture some images of the attendees as they exit the limo (use flash and a wide angle zoom lens). moncler outlet online

cheap moncler jackets outlet On the dance floor look for tight shots of couples slow moncler sale outlet dancing together along with wide shots of the crowded dance floor. If spotlights are being used, look to backlight a dancer or couple for an interesting silhouette. cheap moncler jackets outlet

moncler jackets mens Don’t forget to grab some table shots too. Have the half of cheap moncler jackets the table with their backs to the camera move to the other side so they’re in the picture too (either pose them standing behind the seated couples, or arrange it so women are seated and men are standing). Look for shots of students moncler outlet woodbury interacting with family members and friends (a telephoto zoom comes in handy here so you can capture intimate moments while giving people some space). Keep in mind, graduation day can lead to some very emotional images as friends realize an important part of their lives has come to an end. moncler jackets mens

moncler jackets toronto Look for messages taped on head gear plus signs in the stands. A cheap moncler jackets mens classic image is the student body tossing their hats in the air at the end of the ceremony. Make sure you’re prepared for this opportunity and have a wide angle zoom on the camera at the time. moncler jackets toronto

moncler coats for kids One last thing, check for cars that are painted or decorated for graduation. If you can, make moncler usa sure you have some moncler sale students in the image as well (always try to avoid static images of inanimate objects. These events can provide challenging but wonderful photographic opportunities. moncler coats for kids

moncler jacket outlet They’re challenging because you’re often shooting under difficult lighting conditions and more often than not, the use of flash is forbidden. This means you’ll have to work at high ISO settings and deal with the hazards of slower shutter speeds. While a tripod or monopod may come in handy, there’s still the issue of subject movement too. Look for moments of minimal movement and favor getting close to the action so you can shoot with wider optics (reducing the likelihood of blur from camera shake). moncler jacket outlet

moncler chicago If you’re photographing a play, try and attend a dress rehearsal since it’s possible you may be allowed uk moncler outlet to use flash (this varies from school to school). Even if you can’t cheap moncler coats mens use flash, at least you’ll have greater freedom of movement and will have more moncler outlet store locations to shoot from.

While an entire article could be written on moncler outlet online photographing any one individual sport, there’s still some general advice that works moncler outlet prices no matter what sport you’re shooting. buy moncler jackets toronto

moncler outlet ny The first thing to keep in mind cheap moncler jackets womens is that you’re often working at cross purposes. While it’s important to get some good action photos, since this is for a yearbook and not a newspaper, it’s also important to make Moncler Outlet sale sure faces are identifiable and as many different individuals as possible are depicted (it does a yearbook no good to offer a section on a particular sport that only features images of the star player and no one else). Look best moncler jackets for images of players in the dugout watching the game, coaches teaching or advising players. Shots of athletes at different positions (warm ups and practice sessions are good times to get these images) waiting for the action to start can also be useful. Don’t forget to get some close ups of equipment and pictures of the people attending the events. Look for shots made from behind the student using their head and moncler uk outlet shoulder to uk moncler sale act as a frame to focus on the teacher.

Talk to teachers to find out about particularly interesting demonstrations they may have planned which can lead to more exciting photos. moncler coats for women

moncler outlet woodbury One of the biggest moncler online store challenges a yearbook photographer faces is managing to be in the right place at the right time.

moncler jackets Try to keep a camera with you as much as possible too. Often photo opportunities spring up when least expected. If you’re ready to shoot, you can take advantage of such opportunities moncler jackets.

So basically imagine you see a preview for a movie with beautiful animal/fantasy characters but perhaps with anime themes, like mechas and shiney, beautiful technology or something. It looks really good, like a Pixar movie and not like Shrek or Madagascar at all. Something with a lot of heart. And then you hear, “this film has been rated R” and you’re like, “Whaaaaaat??”

So then you go see it and there’s a fantasy world and there are two races: an upper race that’s more humanoid only much more perfect and intelligent and kind not at all horrible, and a lower race that’s more humorous and cute. The upper race doesn’t rule the lower race; they just give advice if asked. The main character is a female from the lower race but she was raised like an intelligent pet by the upper race because she’s an orphan or something. You immediately fall in love with all the characters (I’m sorry that’s just bad writing to say something like that but just go along with me and imagine that the writing was brilliant and you want to just jump right there and live in the movie forever.)

She doesn’t fit in. She doesn’t feel entirely at home with her own kin, but isn’t able to engage with the upper people on their own level. She tries to attend a lecture on the cardinal numbers, but falls asleep. Aww! (that’s important for later, but I can’t explain what the cardinal numbers actually are… look them up on wikipedia after you finish reading this.)

But then… invasion! An army of ghosts attacks the land. They are adorable too, but creepy because they move by teleportation time travel and are hard to fight. One by itself isn’t dangerous, but if several of them seep into your skin, you turn into a plant and several new ghosts are born out of it. The upper race invents magical/technological weapons to fight them off, but it seems hopeless. The hero’s home is invaded and her family is all plantified one by one. Now you want to cry because you never thought the movie could be this cruel. Except, in the last moment, a powerful but previously dormant ability in the hero awakens and defeats some of the ghosts. She manages to rescue her upper-race sister (who is actually several times older than her but still a child by their standards).

Immediately the hero is recruited and must step up to become a great warrior. The upper race builds a giant machine that she can use to amplify her ability. The machine uses time manipulation to speed up her own local time so that she can watch the ghosts as they teleport. This is somehow necessary to amplify the ability. Then she can defeat entire armies of them. She wins a big victory by defeating this huge ghost monster or whatever but then the machine gets destroyed and she ends up behind enemy lines. The ghosts keep their distance from her, so she is safe at least. The machine is destroyed, but she actually manages to extract the time manipulator core from the wreckage, which is miraculously undamaged.

Here she finds the plant that was leftover from a previous character from earlier in the movie. But… it looks different! It’s moved. With sudden inspiration, she activates the time manipulator to make her time go slower and slower. The plant seems to be moving very slowly now. All this time she thought she had to slow down time but she really had to speed it up!

The plants aren’t dead. They are actually moving very slowly. Day and nights go by in seconds and the plants seem to move around like people. They are hard to talk to. They seem to have lots of secrets. She decides the ghosts aren’t what they seem. She uses her power to grab one and it goes into her head. At first she is alarmed and tries to stop it… but then lets it in. She walks through the forest and the trees gradually change until they are not trees, but painted trees on a wall. She is in one of the towers, right in the heart of the upper-race’s city! She goes outside and is now a hero. She doesn’t tell anyone about the ghost or the time manipulator. She’s now smarter somehow and instinctively knows to keep it a secret. But when she’s alone, the ghost sometimes jumps back out of her head.

Soon she begins to see what the ghost sees when it floats out of her head. She follows it into other peoples’ heads and sees horrific visions of filth, torture, blood, nails, rotating saws, fire, corrosive acid, and so on. Everyone seems to have this in their heads! Finally, with terror, she tries to follow the ghost into her own head.

After a flash of light, there is the sound of something being unlocked. There is a bloated, ugly creature holding a mask with a lock. With some disgust, we realize that this is the main character. She is now a giant, wrikled, wizened, calloused, warty, hairy male, like an ogre or something. Or maybe if you can imagine the movie the Dark Crystal, and you thought you were the gelfling the whole time and then you wake up and realize you were one of the mystics the entire time, except you also were homeless and had never had a bath. They all act the same as the lower race from before, but in their different bodies it looks grotesque. And of course everything is just a dump. He is so horrified at first he tries to rip his own chest open.

There are other creatures like himself around, but they all have masks locked on. They are all being forced to work giant machines. There is also another kind of monster, which is much more horrible, that goes around and cuts the ogres to drink their blood. The ogres all seem to be in pain, but are docile. The hero can put the mask on and off, unlike anyone else. He looks through the mask and one the blood suckers turns into the upper-sister, who acts perfectly kind and loving when seen through the mask. She seems to be cuddling and petting her and saying wise things and then takes off the mask and she’s like a mad mindless horrific monster who’s sucking her blood and stabbing her. She does not seem to be aware that the hero can see an alternate reality. Every time some of the blood suckers approach, he puts the mask back on and interacts with the upper-race creatures, who are all very kind, and then when the mask comes off he has new wounds oozing blood.

Also, the time manipulator also looks like a piece of junk too and doesn’t seem to do anything in this world.

Eventually he meets more creatures that have been “freed” but they are not strong enough to fight back or change anything. They go through the motions and endure the same torture and slave labor as the rest, and they are unable to communicate meaningfully with anyone who still is locked in and also, every single one of them thought HE was the chosen one before the face lock machine came off. They are all totally demoralized. Most of the time, when they can get one of the creatures to remove its mask, it will do anything to have it put back on. At this point in the movie, you just want to leave the theater, hopefully to kill yourself.

But then, if you manage to keep watching the movie, the main character eventually figures out what the machines do. They are actually building the tissues of the bloodsuckers, and eventually those tissues are assembled into new ones. They are manufacturing their own exploiters. But no, it’s not quite that simple! Because then he discovers that there are other machines that are manufacturing the ogres too! Who is in charge?? Nobody. He finds ogre scientists who are developing better machines and more efficient torture devices, but they don’t know what they’re doing because they’re all wearing the masks and they think they’re doing something else.

Eventually, he discovers what the ghosts really are: disembodied psychic waves that are prevented by the masks from forming connections between people. He learns that he can control the ghosts in the other world to alter minds in the real world. Then, he blinks, and he’s in the mind of one of the monsters. He barely remembers anything of himself. His memories all that of the monster’s. Then he blinks again and he can barely remember being the monster.

Eventually he’s forgotten his original self because only a fragment of consciousness gets through with each jump. He blinks into one of the masked beings again and is back in the fantasy world. It’s hard to remember the real world, but with each flip the new body dimly knows its mission because that thought is the one thing it can make sure to switch properly with each jump. (I’m not sure how this would be conveyed in a movie.) Somewhere, someone must know the source. Where is the origin of the system? Finally, someone blinks and mind-swaps with one of the trees from the fantasy world. Now he’s in both worlds. The trees are pieces of the machines in the real world. But they have different vision from everyone else.

It’s not just that the ogres and blood drinkers are being manufactured, they actually are robots. Also, the plants are robots. Everything is a robot. They are all parts of a vast machine without ever knowing it. The robot knows what it has to do. It must shut down the program. The domination must end. The robot is made out of many smaller and smaller robots. It’s a fractal robot. As it moves, all the other robots of all sizes move with it, and its own parts move with it too in a bizarre dance. It runs to the heart of the creature and unleashes all the valves. All the energy is released. The heart moves faster and faster until it begins to fly apart. We zoom out and see that it was the robots own heart that it was inside.

In the last fraction as it explodes, it wakes up to a new reality, and then it wakes up again, and then again, until there are an infinite number of realities, each more and more real than the last. The new realities appear asymptotically until an infinite number go by at the same time, and there’s a new reality past them… and another beyond that, and another and another until the whole process happens again until it’s passed two infinities of reality, and then three infinities, and then four, and five, and on and on again until an infinite number of infinities go by and then another infinite number of infinities, and then that happens again and again and again until an infinite number of infinite infinities go by and so on and so forth until an infinite infinite infinite … (infinite number of these) … infinite infinities go by.

And then, eyes open.

I want to preface by saying this will sound very odd my contemporary reddit standards but I think cheap Canada Goose we have a very good opportunity for a constructive discussion here, and I would really like that to Canada Goose Parka continue if canada goose uk black friday possible. I also want to apologize for the tone of my last reply. “Alright, is that all?” is condescending. I used it as I felt like you were attempting to shut down cheap canada goose uk conversation, but after seeing your following reply I can see that this assessment was wrong, so I sorry.

canada goose clearance sale While I disagree with what you have said I think you have articulated yourself fantastically and have been completely honest and forthcoming about what you believe and why; which, to me, is the only way to actually engage in constructive discussion. canada goose clearance sale

canada goose black friday sale In short, I want to buy canada goose jacket cheap hear what you have to say and I hope you would be willing to hear me out too. canada goose black friday sale

Canada Goose Jackets I want to have this open dialogue continue, but I have an canadian goose jacket exam in a few hours. So I want to know if canada goose uk shop you would be willing to continue this discussion on this thread Canada Goose online beyond the new reddit normal uk canada goose outlet of bickering back and forth a few times until one person gets bored after a few hours.

canadian goose jacket I not American, I European and we learned about it in school. Plus it the place from Pocahontas. canadian goose jacket

Canada Goose Parka As for being American centric, I guess it is, but I was just saying I liked the idea of it. Britain would probably like it too. Canada Goose Parka

cheap Canada Goose This is the point I like to start on. Your source of information for learning about colonization appears to have come from an American bias, and this has skewed your decision making on the topic. cheap Canada Goose

canada goose clearance Its yours to like the idea of sure, I not here to stop you from liking things, and I not here to explain you out canada goose coats on sale of it either. But you have been saying you don know why you being downvoted, and I trying to show you why naming Humanity first colony on Mars after Jamestown is so disagreeable and why, rationally, it really not a good name. canada goose clearance

canada goose If youre willing to hear me out on explaining this, I continue below. canada goose

canada goose deals Naming it after a former great city alludes to a future as a great city or as the first city again canada goose deals

canada goose coats on sale It has an idea of escalation behind it which is different to naming it after an early or canada goose clearance great city. canada goose coats on sale

buy canada goose jacket As far as colonies go, it one of the first successful colonies at such a canada goose uk outlet large distance from the original nation. buy canada goose jacket

buy canada goose jacket cheap First, Jamestown wasn all that successful. The population starved out several times, leaving it abandoned twice1 buy canada goose jacket cheap

canada goose store Plus, it wasn the first successful colony, that title would go canada goose black friday sale to the New France colonies specifically Acadia. If you looking for a specific settlement, I give you: Quebec City founded in Canada Goose Coats On Sale 16082, and never starving out to the point of abandonment or cannibalism. This means then that canada goose store

Canada Goose sale It was basically what allowed Britain to believe that they could colonise the world. Canada Goose sale

Isn true. There wasn a need for a proof of concept, France had done that; and (in the minds of British aristocracy) if those frogs could do it we sure as hell can. Unless you saying they needed Jamestown to what. Canada Goose Online believe in themselves?? Truth is, the concept of a colony isn Mars. Food doesn grow on Mars. Which leads me buy canada goose outlet chicago canada goose jacket to my next point.

I thought a “most famous colony in the new world” might make sense when going to a new canada goose store planet. For the canada goose new country, this settlement was canada goose factory sale chance to call back to a shared history, and when America became a superpower, this was what they told as their history. But history shouldn be uk canada goose a matter of picking the stories we like.

Canada Goose Outlet I see where you’re coming from and I wanted to ask if you wanted an explanation https://www.canadagooseoutlet4sale.com on why you were downvotes for what to you is a really strong canada goose clearance sale name. If you would, read below. Canada Goose Outlet

First, New Jamestown is a very America centric idea. You talked about it as famous, but Canada Goose sale you need to remember that it might only be famous in your perception. To me, I’d never describe Jamestown as famous. Plus, Jamestown was only one of many American colonies, and there isn’t a single individual colony that can take credit for the colonization of the US.

Furthermore, if it were a Canada Goose Outlet coalition to set up the colony, giving it an American name would be dismissive of every other member of that coalition canada goose coats.

cheap Canada Goose Cool Glitch Effect On Movie Studio Logo Must Mean Shit About To Go Down cheap Canada Goose

canada goose I know this is memes and stuff, but The Matrix might unironically have the best opening act of any action movie.In fact, the whole canada goose uk outlet script is like canada goose uk shop a perfectly compressed diamond. It took the Wachowskis five years to complete refine their script. Every scene serves a purpose. The opening is doing double or triple uk canada goose outlet duty in this regard.To summarize, the movie world has the following “power levels”:Ordinary schmoes who don realize they in the cheap Canada Goose MatrixRedpills (like Morpheus Trinity)”The One”Every action scene in the Canada Goose Online movie obeys these rules, throughout, from beginning to end. This is very important, there no scene in the film where Neo gives Morpheus canada goose outlet uk fake Trinity some kind of Braveheart pep talk and then all of a sudden they able to kick the asses together. Morpheus and Trinity are still running from the at the end of the movie. Everyone is static, Neo canadian goose jacket is the one who changes and grows. Every single action scene Neo is involved in (from the sneaking through the office scene where he fails his nerve gets caught by the cops, to the Dojo scene where he fights Morpheus but then fails the jump) is illustrating Neo growing step by step. A really good example of this is when Neo barely beats Smith in the subway but then has to run anyway because Smith just occupied a new Canada Goose Coats On Sale body. It isn until Neo is truly the One and sees the code that he can effortlessly defeat infinite Smiths.The reason the opening is so great is because it compactly illustrates the different tiers of power that the movie will need you to understand in order to tell the story. First time viewer: “Wow she kicked those cops asses, wait she can leap roofs is she some Canada Goose Jackets kind of superhuman? WAIT WHAT the Agent jumped Canada Goose online too? Wow she scared https://www.canadagooseoutletmall.com of those guys. wait where the fuck did she go? Why isn she in the phone booth rubble?”Immediately you understand Normal PeopleAll of this is done with some very well shot choreographed ACTION and almost no dialogue. While at one level, there is the construct of what Canada Goose Parka you said: the brilliant storytelling choices. But the whole movie trilogy operates also on a metaphorical inner level.The Matrix is Mind, or to be more precise: the imagination, the world of images. Imagination is a blessing and a curse. It creates comforting illusions but also births fear within us. The Wachowskis stated that they see movies themseves as Matrices and wanted to further drive this point home thorugh the film.The illusory nature of our own imagination keeps us trapped in a system of control created by ourselves. The residual self image is the Ego created by the Matrix to give us a contructed but false sense of self. These RSIs can be infiltrated by the personification of Ego and false self themselves: the agents, men who conform solely canada goose clearance to their programming and identities.When Neo awakens to the Real World, he sees the Body. It is decayed canada goose store and malnourished, nearly dead. The world is unconscious literally and metaphorically but through this realisation, Neo is shown how to canada goose black friday sale connect mind and body and awaken to the canada goose factory sale ultimate truth.To go further, we are shown two direct colours: blue and cheap canada goose uk green: Body and Mind. In the third film we are show a new colour: gold which Canada Goose sale is spirit and flows through all things machine. But that another discussion.The machines in the Real world represent mechanical thought patterns. They operate simply to exert control over free choice as represented canada goose by humans. It is this mechanical thought that has created the prison of the Matrix within our minds. Though they were intially good, they became negative thought patterns through repeated abuse and so The Matrix was born within and everyone became Canada Goose Outlet a slave to it.So how does Neo free himself? Through true buy canada goose jacket love first kiss, a biological physical reaction that can only occur between two people with exceptional emotional chemistry, that transcends the mind reality and destroys Neo Ego (Smith), allowing his true self to arise within. This is why we see Neo literally blow up Smith from within.But also beyond this, on a spiritual level, Trinity is called Trinity for canada goose coats a reason, she bestows the Holy spirit upon Neo, allowing him to be born again as his true self, while the Father (Morpheus) watches on.Neo, having overcome the world of images and seeing its falseness, now has complete freedom from mind made contructs and thus his fears, to the point he can fly and fully explore the possibilities of imagination. Watching The Matrix again today. I absolutely love the movies, and consider the first one a classic of the era. Though the philosophy and CGI derailed canada goose coats on sale a bit for uk canada goose me in the sequels, I believe there are actual Master level dissertations written on the themes and presentation of material in the series. In canada goose uk black friday fact, this quora answer speaks to precisely one of the major themes in your buy canada goose jacket cheap comment regarding the colors used in the Matrix.Edit: I partly wrong. The doctor slipping was apparently added to scenes from canada goose clearance sale the original story that was not working and needed to be saved, apparently the scene after in Jerusalem was part of the original screenplay canada goose.

riding Trump is taking credit for the economy he inherited

buy canada goose jacket cheap economy really is right now. As always in expansions, there are strong spots and weak points. buy canada goose jacket cheap

Canada Goose Outlet Strength No. 1 is the job market, specifically the increase canada goose parka outlet uk in jobs and buy canada goose uk the commensurate decline in unemployment. That Trump inherited this trend is canada goose outlet toronto location beyond question. I extrapolated the trend in unemployment from its peak in early 2010 to the end of 2016, and then kept that same linear trend going through January 2017, when Trump took office, until now. The result is a jobless rate of 3.6 percent, almost exactly the current rate (3.8). Same for African Americans. Canada Goose Outlet

canada goose deals Source: BLS, my estimates. canada goose deals

canada goose clearance sale The canada goose outlet ottawa same exercise with average monthly job growth reveals canada goose outlet michigan a slight deceleration, from about 200,000 per month canada goose outlet parka to 190,000 since Trump took office. To be clear, that difference is both insignificant and expected: As we close in on full employment, job growth will tend to decelerate. canada goose clearance sale

canada goose store Source: BLS canada goose store

buy canada goose jacket cheap So, team Trump has every right to tout canada goose outlet shop these trends, but there’s not a shred of evidence they have contributed to them. Still, they haven’tmessed them up.. yet. buy canada goose jacket cheap

canada goose store They can legitimately take credit canada goose outlet buffalo for juicing GDP growth, which has accelerated due to the deficit financed fiscal stimulus from the tax cuts and spending. Canada Goose Outlet Economists not in employ of the administration believe this sugar high will fade by around 2020, but for now, they have done something highly unusual: aggressively stimulate an economy that was heading toward full employment on its own. canada goose store

canada goose clearance Despite this added GDP growth, there are three ways today’s economy is significantly underperforming: wage growth, productivity growth and the fiscal outlook. canada goose clearance

canada goose Given the tightness of the labor market, we should be seeing faster wage growth, and canada goose jacket outlet toronto its absence canada goose outlet uk fake is inconsistent with all that “best ever” stuff. canada goose

canada goose clearance https://www.canadagoosejacket-outlet.ca In the full employment latter 1990s, this working class real wage grew at an annual rate of 1.4 percent, more canada goose outlet store calgary than twice the rate it’s growing today. The job market was tighter back then: The unemployment rate was also around 4 percent but there were fewer working age folks on the sidelines. So, one explanation for Trump’s wage problem is that there is more slack in the job market than that 3.8 percent unemployment rate canada goose outlet price suggests. canada goose clearance

cheap Canada Goose Another explanation for slow real wage growth is something most economists agree is the most serious shortcoming in today’s economy: slow productivity growth. The figure below shows that the growth of output per hour worked is creeping along at its lowest growth rate in decades. cheap Canada Goose

canada goose black friday sale Source: Goldman Sachs canada goose black friday sale

canada goose clearance sale Slow output canada goose outlet sale per hour canada goose outlet kokemuksia is typically cited as a constraint on trend GDP growth (as noted, their stimulus is, for the time being, counteracting that effect). canada goose outlet new york But slow productivity growth canada goose jacket outlet uk is also a constraint on wages, canada goose uk making it harder for firms to both maintain profitability and boost worker pay. So, they are choosing profits over pay hikes, and canada goose outlet website legit given workers’ weak bargaining clout, they have been getting away canada goose outlet florida with it. canada goose clearance sale

buy canada goose jacket cheap Lastly, there’s the deteriorating fiscal outlook, which, of course, has Trump and the Republicans’ fingerprints all over it. My main fiscal concerns stem from the devious play by Republicans to cut taxes for their donor base and then whine about goose outlet canada how we just can’t afford Social Security and Medicare. But the near term economic impact of this play canada goose outlet store toronto is also worth noting. buy canada goose jacket cheap

Canada Goose online To finance the extra debt, the Treasury must significantly increase the supply of bonds, which lowers their price and raises their yields. Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve, worried about potential overheating, is also raising rates. Higher interest rates put upward pressure on debt service, and not canada goose outlet mississauga just for the federal government but for canada goose clothing uk the highly leveraged corporate sector. Of course, rates have been so low for so long that they have room to grow, but the transition to the higher rate regime is a risk factor. Canada Goose online

canadian goose jacket Which serves as a reminder of another big risk in the economy. Somewhere out there, no one knows where, lurks the next recession. It is here where presidents make a big economic difference, and the thought of this administration and canada goose discount uk Congress having to quickly react to an economic downturn is a very scary one. canadian goose jacket

canada goose black friday sale Depending on when the downturn hits, even with its recent rate hikes, the Fed may not have a lot of interest rate firepower. canada goose black friday sale

canada goose So, while I don’t begrudge team Trump their bragging it’s standard practice if anything, the strength of the economy underscores how little it has to do with this extremely chaotic presidency and an economic team that engages canada goose factory outlet vancouver far more in wishful thinking than cogent analysis canada goose.
