Free Online Resources for investing in Canadian Stocks

2020.10.21 20:49 NameInsertedHere Free Online Resources for investing in Canadian Stocks

Hey Fellow Canadians,
I recently switched my investments to WealthSimple Trade because I'm invested in TSX and I was tired of paying transaction fees.
Since then, I've read a bunch of horror stories of things that happened to users due to the limitations of WealthSimple Trade. For example: taking 3 days before showing updated stock prices following stock splits, a 15 minute delay on market prices, etc. It goes without saying that people lose money because of this.
While I have my doubts, I'm still not deterred from using them for now. Instead, I'm looking to use external free tools to ensure that I have the most up to date information before investing.
Currently, I use BNNbloomberg.ca for live stock price updates. For everything else I use Yahoo Finance, CEO.CA, & QuickFS.NET
I'm wondering do you use a site for live stock updates? Where do you get your news & information for Canadian Stocks?

GenTech Proudly Secures Deal with TruLife Distribution to Drive Growth in SINFIT Digital Sale
Newsfile Corp.
Wed, October 21, 2020, 8:30 AM EDT·5 mins read

Denver, Colorado--(Newsfile Corp. - October 21, 2020) - GenTech Holdings, Inc. (OTC Pink: GTEH) ("GenTech" or the "Company"), an emerging leader in the high-end Premium Coffee (www.secretjavas.com), Hemp Wellness (www.hakunasupply.com) and Functional Foods (www.SINFITnutrition.com) marketplaces, along with its SINFIT Nutrition brand ("SINFIT"), is excited to announce that the Company has signed a new marketing, sales, and distribution agreement (the "Agreement") with TruLife Distribution ("TruLife") (TruLifeDist.com), a leader in marketing, distribution, compliance, e-commerce, and advisory services in the Functional Foods marketplace. The main focus of the new Agreement will be to accelerate the growth of e-commerce sales of SINFIT products, particularly over the Amazon.com platform.

TruLife provides direct access to sales on Amazon, Walmart, Rakuten, Wish, TopHatter, and other top e-commerce platforms, allowing clients to instantly list, ship, and sell products through any major platform with an experienced team of experts and a proven track record of success in brand placement and digital sales strategies.

"We have already demonstrated a significant & expansive growth curve since taking control of the SINFIT brand in June," commented Harold Vaca, VP Domestic Sales of SINFIT. "But the vast majority of that growth has been driven by large purchase orders from major distribution partners, both domestic and international. We are also committed to aggressively pursuing end-market consumer direct purchases through our e-commerce footprint, which will provide additional growth and diversify our cash flow ecosystem, making our overall strategy less dependent upon any one source of demand, while driving further growth in total sales."

Management notes that e-commerce sales represent a sizeable portion of overall retail sales growth worldwide, with more than $3.5 trillion in online sales accounting for over 14% of total pre-pandemic global retail sales. Since the onset of the global health crisis, that ratio has shifted decisively further in favor of e-commerce sales, which is not likely to entirely revert back upon the advent of a viable and widely accessible vaccine.

Vaca added, "We have seen an epic process of market penetration for e-commerce platforms this year as major online retailers have begun to reach a much wider base of consumers - people who haven't ever shopped much online, but have been forced to during recent months out of personal health concerns. Many of them will almost certainly continue to make use of e-commerce now that they have tried it out, at least to some extent, making e-commerce an essential sales channel for SINFIT products. TruLife has the network, team, experience, and resources to dramatically augment our e-commerce performance."

SINFIT branded products registered over $2.2 million in global sales in 2019, and are now approved for sale and available for purchase on the Walmart.com and Amazon.com e-commerce platforms as well as in over 2,500 GNC locations in North America and over 10,000 global physical and e-commerce stores across more than 10 countries around the world.

SINFIT products as well-positioned relative to peers and to the long-term macro tailwind defining the functional foods market, which saw sales top $267 billion in February of this year on a global basis, with sales in the US reaching $63 billion, according to Euromonitor 2020. This trend is part of a larger supportive momentum in the general category, with global sales of organic food and drink topping $105 billion in 2018 (Ecovia 2019). U.S. organic food sales also reached $47.9 billion, up 5.9% in 2018 (OTA 2019). In 2019, 77% of U.S. adults used dietary supplements, an all-time high (CRN 2019). U.S. supplement sales are estimated to have reached $49.3 billion in 2019, up 6.2% (NBJ 2019).

About GenTech Holdings, Inc.:

GenTech Holdings, Inc. is a publicly traded company under the symbol GTEH. The Company launched a high-end Coffee Subscription service in early 2020 called Secret Javas, owns a Functional Food company, SINFIT Nutrition and recently closed its acquisition on Products-Groups' "Hakuna Supply".

2020.10.21 07:50 roalddahl14 I want to reconnect with a "straight" friend with whom I had a gay encounter 17 years ago

Hi, looking for some advice and perspective here. It is a story spanning 17 years. So, this is a long post.
TL;DR: I had a consensual gay sexual encounter with my close "straight" friend 17 years ago when both of us were 21. Immediately after the encounter, he became estranged and distanced himself. I apologized to him immediately and he never responded to me. Although I enjoyed the sex, I began feeling "used" when he started avoiding me. Strangely, 2 years later, he began intruding my life through common friends, colleagues, and even roommates. It was almost like that he was stalking me. After 3 years, out of nowhere, he reached out to me and apologized. But I was still very hurt and declined him. After 4 years, I left the city (and country) and moved to graduate school. We never spoke again. Throughout these four years, all our 5-6 interactions were very civil, polite, and always initiated by him. Once (13 years ago) I was hospitalized and, even though we were not on speaking terms, he texted me and inquired about my health. Now, 17 years after the encounter and 13 years after my last contact with him, I feel I acted childishly and remember him a lot. I want to reach out to him to get closure (to not sleep with him again; just be friends). He is now married with kids. I remain single but sometimes date women. How to proceed with life? I think of him every day. I find it very difficult to be in a serious relationship or become emotionally intimate with anyone (men or women). Though I had sex with both men and women over the years, I am unable to lead it to any stable relationship.
Long read: I have always been very studious and career-oriented. Kind of a nerd. Aced high school, graduated summa cum laude, landed up in a comfortable job, and obtained four degrees including a Ph.D. I dated women in my high school and college. But nothing serious. I knew I was bisexual or bi-curious when I completed my undergraduate degree but I never had sex with any man until that time.
When I was 21, I became really good friends with a popular guy "V" (also 21 and "straight") in college. Our interests, attitude, and career goals did not match at all. He was unlike any of my earlier guy friends. But I enjoyed his company. Six months into our friendship - none of us were dating any woman at that time - I received enough "vibes" from him that he was attracted to me (compliments on my body, not pulling away for hours when our legs or bodies would touch each other while watching a movie, remarked more than once that I look sexy and more so in underwear, asking me to stay for the night in his room (on a separate bed), etc.). Really innocent, simple things. I never had this experience with any other guy-friend. In fact, I never thought of myself as an attractive or sexy guy.
Six months into the friendship, I also felt as if he would get annoyed at me or would rather spend several days hanging out with other friends with no communication in between. I started getting some indication that he did not enjoy my company as much as he used to.
When we graduated, we found a job in the same company in another city. We decided to relocate together and, after arriving in the new city, were put in a temporary BnB. The beds did not have blankets and sheets. However, both of us carried some and, on my suggestion, we decided to join the beds together and use my double-bed sheet for both beds. He had a blanket but only for himself. When it was time to go to bed, he undressed himself down to boxers. I kept wearing my T-shirt and underwear. Something inside me was telling me that I may have a sexual encounter with him today. But his recent standoffish behavior indicated to me that it was very unlikely.
As the night progressed, I took off my T-shirt and started feeling very chilly. I felt that he threw his blanket on top of me suggesting we could share the blanket. So, we shared the same blanket but I kept myself on my side of the bed lying with my back toward him. He then gently caressed my back and then put his arm around me. He came closer and then I turned myself toward him. At this time, both of us were embracing each other and breathing heavily. He kept moving his palm on my back and I moved even closer to him. After this things went wild. He was on top of me and started wildly kissing on my neck while tightly embracing me.
I felt that this was not his first time with a guy. But it was my first time with a guy and it felt great. As the kissing and touching became more intimate, I took his underwear off and he came on me. Then, I took mine off. But, at this time, he said "No" and rushed to the restroom. I became very confused and abandoned. It was already morning by that time. He came out, got ready for the office, and went out of the room. Still confused and trying to process everything, I also got ready and went to the office. He avoided me for the day. When we were back in our BnB room, he asked me to separate the beds and took his bed to another room.
For the next 7 days, he avoided me completely, would not talk to me at all in the office, would come to the room late in the night, and go straight to his bed. On one of these days, I was rustling in my bedsheets one night. I noticed that for every rustling sound that I will make, he would make the same from his room. The next day, I texted him that it's awkward that we are not talking with each other and, if he wants to go separate ways, it is ok with me. But does he really think it was my fault that we had such an encounter? He never responded. One night, I waited for him to come back to the room and told him "I am sorry". He did not respond to me at all.
After 7 days, a few more of our batchmates joined the same company. All of us were looking for an apartment to move in as roommates. I heard from other colleagues that he was planning to move into an apartment with them (the original plan was for both of us to move into the same apartment). I was hurt hearing all this. I decided to find a different apartment for myself. He caught me during a lunch-break and told me that he wants to have a "frank conversation" and that he is moving to a new apartment with other colleagues. I told him he is free to do whatever he wants and I respect his wish. It shattered me but I wanted to remain strong and move ahead. I also asked my manager to assign me to a different division because I did not want to see V again on daily basis in the office. For the next two years, we led totally separate lives. I did not have any contact with him or even his friends. With great contention, I was able to rebuild a separate social life for myself. However, I found it very difficult to forget our sexual encounter and found it even more difficult to have a stable friendship or girlfriend.
Two years later, I changed the apartment again. A new colleague approached me to be my new roommate. I agreed. A couple of months later, I noticed that V started visiting my new roommate in the same apartment. They were not friends earlier but they were so now! I found it very stressful and it angered me a lot. But I felt it out of place to ask my roommate to deny V a visit because V was now my roommate's friend. I kept tolerating these visits silently. V did not speak to me on any of these visits.
Gradually, I noticed V had become friends with colleagues in my division and started attending parties and other events in my new social circle too. I found this behavior akin to stalking and used to become very stressed in his presence. One day, I got a call from an unknown number. Turns out it was V. He asked how I was doing and proposed to have dinner together. I was speechless and taken aback at the call. I even agreed to dinner. But then I kept thinking how much hurt I felt and texted him that I do not feel it is appropriate and I cannot meet him for dinner. He texted back that, if not for dinner, then how about just meeting for 10 minutes. I declined that as well.
A year later, he left the company and joined somewhere else. I was relieved that I would not have to see him again. But I was sad thinking about our estrangement all the time. This was the fourth year after our sexual encounter. I started preparing for admissions to graduate school. One day, I received the following message from V on Yahoo! chat: "Hi R, I have been thinking about this for a long time. I am sorry. I want to make it up to you. And the sole reason for that is ... you were a good friend and I really liked being with you. I would like to see us back together as friends."
So many emotions went through my head. I felt "validated" and happy and "desired". But also very angry at him for hurting and stalking me for all these years. After a few days, I surmised that I still do not know what he wants. We were friends for only six months and perhaps I did not know him at all. I was very depressed during those days and decided that I will be hurt again if I become friends with him. I wrote to him that I forgive him (even though he should not feel sorry for anything). That we are polar opposites in every respect and it is best if we remain happy wherever we are. I asked him to grant me a comfortable distance. I also wrote to him that I do not seek any explanation from him either (even though I had so many questions). He responded with good wishes and that he respects my viewpoint and "probably it is correct". Throughout all these years, even while questioned by some common friends, I never shared my experience with them and never bitched about V to anyone.
I secured admission to a grad school in another country. As I prepared to leave, I became very sick and was hospitalized for almost a month. A number of friends called and visited me in the hospital. One day, V messaged me that he heard about my sickness and wanted to know if I was doing well. I wrote to him that I was recovering. This was my last contact with him 13 years ago.
I moved to another country and got busy earning my Ph.D. and crafting a separate career. I dated a few women and, in between, also had some sexual encounters with men. With time, I became more comfortable with my sexuality and explored it more. I would always think of V and how life would have been if we remained friends. I kept hearing about him through common friends. He got married 10 years ago and (perhaps) had a kid three years ago. I am single and looking to marry a woman.
However, I feel very sad about how I left the things with V. I feel he was mature to apologize and seek friendship again. But I was not ready to talk with him. I had so many questions but he never explained himself. I feel a hole in my heart and need some closure. It has been a long time and I think if I approach him, he will reject me or may not even respond. I do not want to have an affair with him. But if we could just talk with each other once like old friends, I will get some closure. We still have many common friends. As a result of my encounter with him and what followed, I am unable to experience deep intimacy or even enjoy sex with anyone else.
Why I cannot be intimate with someone else? I have read that this is a problem with people who have encountered a sexual assault at a young age. I don't think he assaulted me but he did initiate it. Even though I was trembling when he was intimately touching me, I enjoyed the encounter. That's why I say it was consensual. I have tried therapy a lot but it has not worked. It is almost like my body feels I was assaulted and fears intimacy with any other person. But my heart says that it was not an assault. When I am in a sexual setting with someone else, I think only about him. I stopped having sex 5 years ago because getting touched by anyone brings back all these traumatic memories to me. What should I do? Did I mess up? Was it all my fault?

2020.10.21 06:41 theInjusticeamongus Era uma vez...uma internet sem velhada!

Eu ainda sou do tempo em que a internet era uma espécie de submundo. Um escape. Apenas os mais jovens a usavam, pouca gente a tinha instalada em casa, e ficar online, nem que fosse só por 1 horinha, dava uma pica do caralho. Era o ponto alto do dia de qualquer criança e adolescente, desfrutar da sua horinha diária de conexão. Sim, porque era caro. 1 horinha por dia ficava-te aí nuns 20 euros por mês. Não tenho bem certeza, pois não era eu que a pagava. A velhada mal sabia o que era a internet, portanto tava-se bem. Não tinhamos de ter cuidado com o que publicávamos, nem tinhamos de ler o que o gang do AVC pensava. Era uma época em que os reumatoides guardavam o lado mais sombrio dos seus pensamentos para eles mesmos. Não te podiam convidar para jogos do facebook, e tava-se bem.

Este post vai ser um pouco longo. Espero que não se aborreçam. Talvez sirva para dar a conhecer algo de novo aos mais jovens, e ajudar os mais old school a recordaros bons velhos tempos. Se possível, partilhem também experiências que tenham tido quando a internet ainda era um dinossauro.

Internet nas escolas

As escolas têm computadores com ligação à internet desde inícios e meados dos anos 90. Nos intervalos podias utilizá-los. Essa utilização consistia em fazeres uma pesquisa random num motor de busca. "Tartarugas ninja", por exemplo. Depois vias as fotos. Sem supervisão parental, pesquisavas porno. Mas basicamente era isso. Não havia mesmo muito para fazer.

Lentidão

Havia horas em que a internet não se mexia. Dependia muito da quantidade de pessoas online. Tinhas de ser estratégico. Se fosses às 9 da noite, por exemplo, podias ter de esperar 15, 20 minutos para carregar uma simples página web. Um download de 5 megas levava facilmente meia hora, e era se a net estivesse boa. 5 megas era mais ou menos uma música.

Antes do Google

Google não existiu até 98, e mesmo a sua popularidade só veio mais tarde. Portanto, aí até 2000 o que se usava era o Altavista. Yahoo também era muito popular, e em Portugal os preferidos eram o Sapo, Aeiou e Clix, para tudo, mesmo pesquisas.

Antes do Youtube

Sinceramente, eu só soube o que era streaming aí por volta de 2004. Ir a um site e ver videos online não era prática comum. Nem havia nada que fosse muito popular. Pelo menos que me lembre. O Metacafe era o mais conhecido. Era tipo Youtube, mas muito menos popular. Portanto, não havia nenhum site deste género que toda a gente usasse . Dailymotion também tornou-se popular durante um curto período de tempo. Mas ainda hoje o utilizo para encontrar videos que o Youtube remove constantemente. Aconselho a toda a gente.

Porno

Nos anos 90 era mesmo só ir a sites tipo o da Playboy e ver gajas nuas. Resumia-se a isso. Fotos de gajas. Não se usava cá sites com vídeos. Víamos umas mamas e estava a andar. Naquela época ver mamas era de loucos. Acho que hoje em dia para sentires a emoção de ver mamas na internet nos anos 90 terias de encontrar um OVNI com ET's lá dentro. A banalização matou muitas emoções.
Depois em inicios de 2000's o que havia era sites tipo pornhub, mas com clips super curtos. 30, 40 segundos. Se algo te captasse a atenção depois tentavas sacar os filmes inteiros.

eMule

Era o que se usava para sacar merdas. Basicamente, colocavas um filme a sacar hoje, com alguma sorte para a semana estava completo. Mas isto já é mais recente. Em Portugal usou-se muito entre 2004 e 2006. Nos anos 90 e inicios de 2000 não se costumava sacar cenas. Ocasionalmente alguém partilhava um video num chat ou fórum para um evento ou algo assim, mas pouco mais. Acredito que houvesse forma de se sacar, mas não era comum. Em vez de filmes no disco rigido, tinhas um porta cd's cheio de filmes e pornografia.

Chats Clix e Terravista

Entre finais de anos 90 e inicios de 2000's era o que estava a dar. Não tinhas de te registar, e havia sempre umas centenas de pessoas prontas a conversar. Podias ser uma pessoa diferente todos os dias. O conceito de "catfish" não existia, pois catfishing era a norma. Era bom para o engate e conversas porcas. Proporcionava-nos uma sensação de liberdade. Na altura era tudo muito menos controlado. Não tinhas problemas legais com o que dizias e fazias na net, e nem sequer eras banido. Dificilmente te baniriam do Terravista. Era agradável, mas todos os dias havia alguém que entrava só para dizer algo tipo: "SEUS FILHOS DA PUTA!!!!!!!!!!!!! VÃO PO CARALHO QUE VOS FODA". E como não era banido, ficavas a ver uma conversa amena sobre cursos universitários e lá pelo meio um troll que não parava de insultar toda a gente. Tipo:
User A: Então, e que curso queres tirar?
User B: Estou a pensar em psicologia
Troll: QUANDO EU TE VIOLAR TU É QUE VAIS PRECISAR DE PSICÓLOGO!!!!!!!
User A: Também gosto muito. A minha irmã tirou o mesmo curso. Para que universidade vais?
Troll: ELA VAI PRA UNIVERSIDADE DAS PUTAS AMESTRADAS!!!!
User B: Em princípio universidade do porto. E tu?
Troll: VAIS-TE PROSTITUIR À PORTA DA UNIVERSIDADE DO PORTO, SUA VACALHONA!!
User A: Eu vou para a universidade de Évora

E isto podia arrastar-se durante horas. Era o pão nosso de cada dia.

A primeira vez que falei com alguém online foi no chat de clix. Quando disse "Olá" e do outro lado recebi um "Olá", nem queria acreditar. Fiquei super entusiasmado e respondi "CHUPA-ME O CARALHO, SUA PUTA!". Não fiquem chocados. Eram outros tempos.

Internet Relay Chat

O IRC foi o peso pesado da internet tuga entre 97 e 2005. Era onde existia a maior concentração de Portugueses ao mesmo tempo. Cerca de 30 mil online durante a noite. Era uma rede de chats, com canais sobre praticamente todos os temas. De certa forma era muito semelhante ao reddit, uma vez que qualquer pessoa podia criar o seu próprio canal e tentar torná-lo popular. Depois escolhia os moderadores para o seu canal.
Uma cena interessante do IRC era que poder falar com pessoas online ainda era o primeiro atrativo. A cultura da devassa da vida privada ainda não existia, e o pessoal não andava desesperado por popularidade. A excitação estava em poderes comunicar com desconhecidos. Era uma cena nova, revolucionária. E como não tínhamos o dia todo para estar na internet tentava-se tirar o máximo partido.
Um termo que já foi muito popular, mas agora raramente se usa, é o "blind date". Basicamente, entravas, metias conversa com uma gaja, perguntavas de onde ela tecla e marcavas um encontro para amanhã. Quase sempre sem troca de fotografias. Isto hoje em não acontece.
Foi no IRC que conheci as minhas primeiras namoradas. Nessa altura ainda havia romance online, pois era novidade. Hoje em dia está demasiado banalizado. Já toda a gente experimentou tudo toneladas de vezes e as pessoas tendem a ficar-se mais pelos seus círculos sociais reais, em vez de se aventurarem com desconhecidos.
O IRC era vida. Era tipo guerra dos tronos. Lembro-me de ter feito chantagem com o dono de um canal para ele me passar a administração. Ele fundou o canal, mas eu é que o tornei popular. Ele esteve ausente uns meses, e quando voltou começou a querer impor as ideias dele, e eu fiquei a odiá-lo. Um dia recebi notificação que ele estava online, mas não no nosso canal. Fui ver em que canal ele estava e era o #gayengates. Fiz print e depois fiz chantagem. Tornei-me no lider absoluto do canal. Bons tempos.
No inicio da era da banda larga, como não havia muito para fazer, o comum era o pessoal usar a internet só mesmo para IRC. Basicamente, era só o que fazias. Sempre ligado. Mesmo quando desligavas, podias deixar uma shell do teu nick sempre on, registando todas as conversas. Se soubesses mirc scripting podias até criar bots. Utilizadores fantasmas que estavam sempre on e executavam comandos. Por exemplo, podias escrever, no geral, !tempo, e ele dizia-te o tempo. Ou então !ban zetoy, e ele bania o zé. Era fascinante estar num canal com centenas de pessoas a madrugada toda a trocar mensagens. Mais uma vez, tal e qual como o Reddit. A diferença é que era formato de chat, não de fórum.
Nesta época os chats clix e terravista também eram muito populares, mas o pessoal do IRC era uma beca snob para com o do clix e terravista, pois os do clix e terravista eram os incautos, que nem sabiam o que o IRC era. Eram os chats dos pobrezinhos. IRC era para quem já sabia um bocadinho mais de tecnologia, uma vez que exigia que conhecesses alguns comandos.
O servidor mais popular em Portugal é a PTnet. Já quase ninguém usa isto, sem ser gays. No estrangeiro, no entanto, ainda há servidores com milhões de utilizadores, mas é uma cena mais para programadores. Basicamente, cada servidor era o seu próprio universo de IRC. Tu podias ir a qualquer servidor, mas se quisesses estar no com mais Portugueses era o PTnet.

MSN

MSN era um mensageiro, tipo Skype. O que tinha sempre on era o IRC e o MSN. Geralmente falavas com o pessoal no IRC, e depois trocavam contactos. MSN era mais pessoal. Isto em inícios de 2000. A dada altura toda a gente que tinha internet tinha MSN. Era mais popular do que IRC. Era quase o equivalente a ter whatsapp.

NETMEETING

Era basicamente para bater pivias por webcam e ver mamas. Tipo Skype, mas servia apenas para video. Quando falavas com uma gaja no IRC e querias fazer "sexo virtual", pedias-lhe o netmeeting. Isto foi ainda antes do MSN. É uma merda dos anos 90 e inicios de 2000. Acho que já ninguém usa, a menos que sejam dementes.

TUGA NINJA

Tuga Ninja foi um dos eventos mais entusiasmantes da internet nacional. Era um jogo de porrada no site da CLIX. Tinhas uma sala de chat com muita gente on e desafiavas quem quisesses para um combate. Consoante ganhavas, ias subindo no ranking. Era isso que dava pica, tentar chegar ao topo. Era muito simplório: o adversário decidia como te ia atacar, e tu tinhas de adivinhar a decisão dele e escolher a defesa. O que tornava o jogo especial era a banda sonora dos ENA PA 2000(?) e o design dos personagens, que eram todos caricaturas de diversos espectros da sociedade tuga, como é o caso de taxistas e peixeiras.

HI5

Acho que toda a gente deve conhecer o hi5, e foi quando a internet começou a apodrecer e o IRC começou a morrer, aí por volta de 2005/2006. Tornou-se na rede "mainstream" em Portugal. Mas mainstream na altura não era o mesmo que mainstream agora. Mainstream agora significa que a tua avó usa. Mainstream na altura significava que toda a gente com internet tinha. A título de curiosidade: só aí a partir de 2006 é que internet começou a ser uma coisa que toda a gente tem em casa. Lembro-me de em 2003 só eu e mais duas pessoas na minha turma termos internet em casa. E nos anos 90 então era raríssimo. Geralmente os meus colegas filhos de pais finos é que tinham net. Eu tive aí em 95 pela primeira vez.
O hi5 era muita chunga, mas dava para arranjar umas quecas. Na altura era tudo mais fácil, talvez pela escassez e pela novidade. Conheci muita gaja por aqui, mas tirando isso não há nada de bom a dizer. Era lixo. Curiosamente, o HI5 começou a morrer quando a velhada começou a usar net e a inscrever-se. Depois os jovens migraram para o FB, por volta de 2009, enquanto o HI5 ficou para o reumático. Hoje o FB começa a ser cena de velho e o IG é o alvo de migração dos mais jovens. Daqui a mais 1 anito ou dois os velhos começam a popular o IG e os jovens fogem para outra rede.

Myspace

O Myspace marca a era de ouro das redes sociais. E foi uma era muito curta. Digo de ouro porque ainda não eram bem o cancro que são hoje em dia, e nenhuma rede social dominava TUDO, como acontece com o FB. Na verdade, as pessoas estavam espalhadas por diversas redes sociais, e cada rede tinha uma demografia específica. Também exibiam-se muito menos. Não era fotos nova todos os dias. Frequentemente era apenas uma foto de perfil.
Uma das particularidades do Myspace é que era muito voltado para música. Era a rede que os artistas utilizavam, e podias segui-los. Era uma rede mais "cool", digamos assim.
O Myspace ganhou popularidade em Portugal aí em 2006, e começou a morrer aí em 2009. Não era tão popular quanto o Hi5, mas a demografia era mais interessante. Basicamente, hi5 = tudo quanto é merda e Myspace = pessoal mais interessante, mais dado às artes e intelectualidade. Foi no Myspace que conheci as miúdas mais interessantes da minha vida. Não havia tantas, mas geralmente tinham mais conteúdo. Eram as gajas com quem podias falar de música e cinema.
Nesta época as redes sociais tinham um grau de popularidade perfeito: havia gente suficiente para teres com quem interagir, mas não ao ponto de até a tua avó e o periquito dela estarem presentes. Podias participar sem ter necessariamente de ter todas as pessoas da tua vida adicionadas. Era uma cena mais anónima.

Netjovens

O Netjovens é um bocado mais obscuro, mas durante um curto período gozou de um bom nível de popularidade em Portugal. Penso que o auge foi em 2007, depois foi vendido por 1 milhão de euros. Era uma rede tuga, criada por um só gajo num curto espaço de tempo, e até há uma reportagem sobre a venda:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URJ1-buuScs
Como disse, antes de 2010 as pessoas estavam muito dispersas por diversas redes sociais. Não havia uma força dominante, e tu ias a diversos sites, para diversos tipos de demografia e conversa. O Netjovens era estilo HI5, mas um bocado mais interessante e menos popular. Não tão bom quanto Myspace, mas era mais uma plataforma de caça. Sim, as redes sociais até 2010 serviam para o engate. Era basicamente isso. Agora servem para a auto-promoção.
Confesso que não sei bem o propósito da venda do Netjovens. Que saiba o site morreu. Portanto quem pagou 1 milhão pelo mesmo não sei bem o que dele retirou.

Netlog

Da mesma era do do Netjovens, mas mais chunga. Mais uma vez, era para o engate. Tinha bue jogos, por isso até dava para um gajo se divertir. A qualidade demográfica era semelhante à do hi5, mas menos popular. Destacava-se por ter bue funcionalidades de entretenimento que o hi5 não tinha.

E pronto, depois disto é basicamente o que se vê hoje em dia: FB, Twitter, IG, TikTok. Aquilo que vocês já todos conhecem. A nível profissional tens mais oportunidades, mas no que toca a socialização as novas redes são piores a todos os níveis. Servem para engrandecimento do ego e pouco mais. Perdeu-se a componente da descoberta e interacção social.

2020.10.20 17:06 XIST-R-2-S $RKT is going to CRUSH earnings, and the best part is that it’s not priced into its current share price.

$RKT Rocket Companies, IE: Quicken Loans announces third quarter earnings date. This company is completely undervalued right now, reaching a peak of $34.42 the price is currently sitting around $21. The housing market is currently BOOMING and home values are higher than ever with interest rates lower than ever. Currently sitting on $10.1 Billion in revenue it has a Gross Profit of $5.3 Billion, a profit margin of 47.46%. I would recommend jumping into this beast.
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/rocket-companies-announces-third-quarter-100000117.html
“DETROIT, Oct. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Rocket Companies, Inc.

2020.10.20 14:48 mammaknullarenftp163 Some analysis I have done on the Uyghur situation and why the Uyghurs are being repressed (and more)

1. Is the CHRD as flawed as they (thegrayzone) made it out to be?

The article tried to ridicule the study for the one million extrapolation, attempted to discredit it solely on the ground that it interviewed 8 people, ”The first, by the US government-backed Network of Chinese Human Rights Defenders, formed its estimate by interviewing a grand total of eight people.” While conveniently ignoring the reason why such method was formed and the confirmation that went after it, and you can see it shown, but not detailed in the article, those interviewed were asked to remember a detention rate in their regions, which ranged between 8% and 20%, and those were shortened down to a conservative mark of 10%, out of 10 million Uighurs, now, it is good to criticize the source, but rather than doing so, the article just expected us to see it as bad not by methodology, but by association, as exemplified in this article:
"In its mounting pressure campaign against China, the US is not only relying on CHRD for data; it is directly funding its operations. As Ben Norton and Ajit Singh previously reported for The Grayzone, CHRD receives significant financial support from Washington’s regime-change arm, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED)."
Without ever going into detail how this is even a bad thing, just expecting us to see it as such, now I got a lot to say about the western left's misinterpretation of the NED, but I will leave it for another person down in this article, for now, I will be going on a more relevant point.

2. Where is the number coming from?

So a lot of these numbers came from leaks provided by Chinese securities personnel, which the article touched on, but conveniently downplayed stating:
"The Istiqlal TV report relied on by Zenz published an unverified table of “re-education detainee figures” allegedly “leaked” by Chinese authorities, totaling 892,000 individuals in 68 Xinjiang counties as of Spring 2018."
This figure is unverified, yes, but the authors conveniently left out why we can't verify this figure, it's because the Chinese government categorically denied every attempt for an independent analysis in Xinjiang itself, they refused to publish any numbers, let alone letting anyone in to do their own analysis, so in the absence of conventional sources, we have to resort to outside studies, so what do the outside studies actually say?
We have reporting from Radio Free Asia on the detention quotas that local government officials have to meet:
https://www.rfa.org/english/news/uyghudetentions-03192018151252.html
The BBC's estimates and attempts to study the camp, sometimes through satellite:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/resources/idt-sh/China_hidden_camps
The huge invoice placed for prison equipment, with some offices spending 577% more than planned since the repression began:
https://news.yahoo.com/inside-chinas-internment-camps-tear-gas-tasers-textbooks-052736783.html
And another estimate from CHRD, based on public records, showing that arrests in Xinjiang accounted for 21% of all arrests in China in 2017, and arrest rose by a factor of 700% from 2016 to 2017, which is consistent with suppression and the concentration camps, and the 10-fold jump in the number of new security facilities, which you can see in the BBC link:
https://www.nchrd.org/2018/07/criminal-arrests-in-xinjiang-account-for-21-of-chinas-total-in-2017/
You can also refer to this Quart link for a lot of my citations and explanations for how it was drawn:
https://qz.com/1599393/how-researchers-estimate-1-million-uyghurs-are-detained-in-xinjiang/
Now remember, these are estimates, even though they're credible, they're not exact, if we want the exact number, there's a very easy solution, the Chinese government can release the exact estimate and allow foreign organizations to confirm it, but it has not happened yet, in the meantime, we only have these sources to quote, and they do not look good for the Chinese, feel free to ask me questions on my sources.
One thing I also must put forth, the article went on a lot of details about Adrian Zenz and his ideology, which he put it the best:
“I do have a diverse background and I have personal connections which I do not believe are inconsistent with my research”
The authors of the article attempting to discredit him on his religious beliefs are like the college republicans trying to assassinate my characters by showing my facebook page to the class, just because I'm not a fan of Trump doesn't diminish the validity of my criticism, just like Adran Zenz being Christian does not make his data any less valid.
And I know what the ASPI is, I am wondering if any of you can detail what is wrong about their data.
Now, just because the NED uses the geographical term doesn't mean that it supports separatism, if it does, then it would've done so through official prints, which I am not seeing, the allegation that it does, without sources would be conjecture evidence at best.
On the funding provided to the WOC, you can see it right here:
https://www.ned.org/wp-content/themes/ned/search/grant-search.php?organizationName=World+Uyghur+Congress®ion=ASIA&projectCountry=&amount=&fromDate=&toDate=&projectFocus%5B%5D=&search=&maxCount=25&orderBy=Year&start=1&sbmt=1
This is called guilt by association, and it's especially bad, because we're just supposed to see something as bad, without even examining why it should be bad, these fundings provided mostly go to seminars and projects, none of them are for buying arms or funding terrorism, and it doesn't take a genius to see that.
On the E.U delegation, the reason why it was rejected was because the Chinese government wouldn't let the delegation meet the top party chief of Xinjiang, didn't allow it to perform its independent analysis, and prohibited it from discussing human rights:
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-xinjiang-eu/eus-proposed-ambassadorial-visit-to-xinjiang-seen-unlikely-to-happen-idUSKBN1XO0SX
One thing that I must say about Xinjiang though, is that you should take into account the widespread wealth inequality between the Hans and Uighurs, and the fact that the economic growth and income growth in Xinjiang have often benefited the Hans rather than the ethnic Uighurs themselves, in addition to employment discrimination against Uighurs, which is where most of the tensions originated:
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-xinjiang-insight/in-chinas-xinjiang-economic-divide-seen-fuelling-ethnic-unrest-idUSBREA450X520140506
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/229966690_Chinese_Minority_Income_Disparity_in_Urumqi_An_Analysis_of_Han_and_Uyghur_Labour_Market_Outcomes_in_the_Formal_and_Informal_Economy
Also, China might perform symbolic gestures, but the reality is, it is cracking down on Muslim practices and Islamism, as in the ideology as a whole and its adherents:
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/21/world/asia/china-islam-crackdown.html
To add, I am against terrorism and have no interests in defending terrorists.

2020.10.20 12:47 autobuzzfeedbot 14 Stories About Child Actors That'll Make You See Their Work In A Different Light

  1. While the 1996 film Matilda was in production, Mara Wilson's mother was dying of breast cancer. Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman — who played her evil parents in the film — invited Mara over to their house and took care of her during this difficult time.
  2. And Mara Wilson was embarrassed about the scene where she had to dance in Matilda, so Danny Devito had the whole crew dance too while they were filming.
  3. In 2004, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen skipped their senior prom to host Saturday Night Live. The opening skit of the night was prom-themed.
  4. Linda Blair — who was 14 when The Exorcist was in theaters — received death threats from people who said she was glorifying Satan.
  5. And when Linda Blair was 15, she started dating 25-year-old musician Rick Springfield — singer of the hit song "Jessie's Girl."
  6. Susan Olsen, aka Cindy Brady from The Brady Bunch, revealed in an interview that she used to make out with Mike Lookinland (Bobby Brady) in the doghouse on set. She also said Eve Plumb (Jan Brady) had a crush on Chris Knight (Peter Brady) and they "did kind of hook up later on."
  7. The role of Boo in Monster's Inc. was played by Mary Gibbs — the daughter of storyboard artist Rob Gibbs. She was only 2-and-a-half, so it was really difficult to get her to stand still and say lines. They ended up recording random noises and words she said while playing around, including the infamous "kitty."
  8. Judith Barsi — the voice of Anne-Marie in All Dogs Go to Heaven and Ducky in The Land Before Time — was murdered by her father at the age of 11. Her father also killed her mother and himself.
  9. Cary Guffey — who turned 4 while playing the role of "Barry" in Close Encounters of the Third Kind — was nicknamed "One Take Cary" by the film crew because he was almost always able to deliver his lines in one take.
  10. Henry Thomas had such an impressive audition for the role of Elliot in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial that Steven Spielberg hired him on the spot. At the end of his audition, Spielberg said to him, "Okay kid, you got the job."
  11. Heather O'Rourke, the star of the Poltergeist movies, died from a bowel obstruction at the age of 12 — just months after Poltergeist III wrapped up filming. The circumstances of her death were considered "unusual" because she never showed any prior symptoms of a bowel defect.
  12. Kieran Culkin had no idea what Home Alone was about — or that his older brother, Macaulay, was the star — until seeing it in theaters. He was 7 years old when he played the supporting role of Kevin's cousin.
  13. Judy Garland — who was only 16 when cast as Dorothy — was put on a strict diet and given pills in order to stay thin on the set of The Wizard of Oz. She was forced to work long, strenuous hours, and by the time they finished filming, she was addicted to amphetamines and sleeping pills.
  14. And Cameron Crowe, the director of Jerry Maguire, said that Jonathan Lipnicki — who played Ray — was the one who came up with the infamous line, "Do you know the human head weighs eight pounds?"

2020.10.19 17:26 cilantro_samosa [OC] Which front offices and agents are the 3 major newsbreakers connected to? I went through 6000+ tweets to find out!

If this sounds somewhat familiar, that's because I did a 2019-2020 version and posted it back in March.
In terms of changes from that post:
TL;DR
Tracked tweets of Woj, Shams and Haynes from 2018-2020 to see whether any of them report on a certain team or a certain agent's players more than their counterparts. Here is the main graph concerning a reporter's percentage of tweets per team separated into three periods (2019 season, 2020 offseason, 2020 season). Here is a separate graph with the Lakers and Warriors, because Haynes's percentages would skew the first graph.

During times like the NBA trade deadline or the lifting of the NBA free-agency moratorium, it’s not uncommon to see Twitter replies to (or Reddit comments about) star reporters reference their performance relative to others.
Woj is the preeminent scoop hound, but he is also notorious for writing hit pieces on LeBron (sources say it’s been widely rumoured that the reason for these is that Woj has always been unable to place a reliable source in LeBron’s camp). On the other end of the spectrum, it has been revealed that in exchange for exclusive intel on league memos and Pistons dealings, Woj wrote puff pieces on then-GM Joe Dumars (see above Kevin Draper link). Last summer, Woj was accused of being a Clippers shill on this very discussion board for noticeably driving the Kawhi Leonard free agency conversation towards the team.
This is the reason I undertook this project: to see whether some reporters have more sources in certain teams (and certain agencies) than other reporters.
First I’ll explain the methodology, then present the data with some initial comments.

Methodology

To make this manageable on myself, I limited myself to tracking the 3 major national reporters: Shams Charania of the Athletic, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports and the aforementioned Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
The time period I initially tracked for was from January 1, 2020 to the end of the regular season March, but after finding a Twitter scraping tool on GitHub called Twint, I was able to easily retrieve all tweets since September 27, 2018. However, a month ago, Twitter closed their old API endpoints, and Twint ceased to work. I used vicinitas.io but the data loading became more time-consuming. Therefore, the tweets are up to the date of October 15 2020.
How I determined information was by manually parsing text tweets by the reporter (no retweets):
Now, I didn’t take every single text tweet:
Next, I had to assign possible teams to each tweet:
With all the methodology out of the way, here’s the data! (Here’s a link to a full Google Sheet)

Teams

Here's a graph of number of tweets per team per period, with the colours denoting reporter.
On a quick glance, here's which teams saw a significant period-over-period increase in number of tweets:
And here's which teams saw decreases over a period-by-period basis:
The problem with just using number of tweets is that it's not close on totals between Haynes vs. Woj or Shams. Here's a graph showing total number of tweets in each period for all three reporters. Haynes's most reported period doesn't even stack up to the least reported period of Woj or Shams.
Instead, let's look at percentage of tweets per team per period.
Now, you'll notice that there's two teams missing from the above graph: the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers. Here's the graphs for those two teams. As you can see, they would skew the previous graph far too much. During the 2019 NBA season, 27% of Chris Haynes's qualifying tweets could be possibly linked to the Warriors, and 14% of his qualifying tweets could be possibly linked to the Lakers.

Agents

Here's the top 10 agents in terms of number of potential tweets concerning their clients.
Agent Haynes Shams Woj Total
Rich Paul 15 28 24 67
Mark Bartelstein 4 16 30 50
Jeff Schwartz 3 10 25 38
Bill Duffy 2 13 14 29
Leon Rose 1 12 15 28
Aaron Mintz 2 9 15 26
Juan Perez 5 10 8 23
Aaron Goodwin 11 8 1 20
Steven Heumann 1 6 12 19
Sam Permut 1 13 5 19
Woj has the most tweets directly connected to agents by far. It wasn't uncommon to see "Player X signs deal with Team Y, Agent Z of Agency F tells ESPN." The agents that go to Woj (and some of their top clients):
One thing I found very intriguing: 15/16 of tweets concerning an Aaron Turner client were reported on by Shams. Turner is the head of Verus Basketball, whose clients include Terry Rozier, Victor Oladipo and Kevin Knox. Shams also reported more than 50% of news relating to clients of Sam Permut of Roc Nation. Permut is the current agent of Kyrie Irving, after Irving fired Jeff Wechsler near the beginning of the 2019 offseason. Permut also reps the Morris brothers and Trey Burke.
As for Chris Haynes, he doesn't really do much agent news (at least not at the level of Woj and Shams). However, he reported more than 50% of news relating to clients of Aaron Goodwin of Goodwin Sports Management, who reps Damian Lillard and DeMar DeRozan.
Here are the top 10 free agents from Forbes, along with their agent and who I predict will be the first/only one to break the news.
Player Agent Most Likely Reporter
Anthony Davis Rich Paul Too close to call, leaning Shams
Brandon Ingram Jeff Schwartz Woj
DeMar DeRozan Aaron Goodwin Haynes
Fred VanVleet Brian Jungreis Limited data
Andre Drummond Jeff Schwartz Woj
Montrezl Harrell Rich Paul Too close to call, leaning Shams
Gordon Hayward Mark Bartelstein Woj
Danilo Gallinari Michael Tellem Woj
Bogdan Bogdanovic Alexander Raskovic, Jason Ranne Limited data, but part of Wasserman, whose players are predominantly reported on by Woj
Davis Bertans Arturs Kalnitis Limited data
Thanks for reading! As always with this type of work, human error is not completely eliminated. If you think a tweet was mistakenly removed, feel free to drop me a line and I’ll try to explain my thought process on that specific tweet! Hope y’all enjoyed the research!

2020.10.19 16:35 MOSFETCurrentMirror Lordstown Motors (DPHC -> RIDE) will moon, get the fuck in, current sentiment on it is retarded

I already made the same post on spacstreetbets, here goes:
  1. Being represented by a literal Chad. Joe Burrow. Look it up. I’m not into football but if I was I’d be buying an Endurance just cuz Joe Burrow’s into it.
  2. Management knows how to pump. You don’t pump on Yahoo Finance once then go radio silence like HYLN. You have a marketing team that pumps out cool pics of ur car everyday on Insta and Twitter. This is how it works, it keeps the interest in the company. Management knows ya’ll impatient fucks trying to get rich quick, so the daily pump on social media helps.
  3. Political backing. Yes, I know, fucking old news. Voltage Valley, look it up. Dems or Republicans, they all go dicks out for Voltage Valley.
  4. Early delivery slated for Q1 2021. Once the first trucks roll off the line, analysts are gonna upgrade.
Literally can’t go tits up.
Buy shares and long dated calls.
Position: 1300 shares. I know, I know, where’s my calls? Sorry but TD decided I was too autistic and declined my account upgrade.
