Recapping 2022

2022 was a dangerous year to be a Vikings fan, especially if you have a pre-existing heart condition. While a season of 13 wins -- tied for the most since 1998 -- may seem like the team is in a position to make a Superbowl push, the actual quality of the team is a lot more... well, mediocre.
The 2022 Vikings ranked 19th in offensive EPA per play, 25th in defensive EPA per play, 27th in Overall DVOA, and 15th in Pythagorean Wins (with 8.4 expected wins). Kevin O'Connell always preached the performance of the team in priority situations. The team finished 12th in 3rd down conversion rate and 8th in red zone conversion rate. And the team led the league -- by far -- in the number of 4th quarter comebacks and game winning drives. When it was time to put up or shut up, the team put up hard. Except for in the playoffs.

2023 Offseason

All of that made the future of the Vikings tough to read. But Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and the rest of the front office told us what they thought of the team with their free agency moves. In a league where teams are trading the farm for Hall of Fame QBs and giving $20M/Year deals to nose tackles and guards, the Vikings' big free agent splash were a one year deal on an injury-prone DE and a good-not-great corner that doesn't even crack the top 20 highest AAVs at the position. Concurrently, the team parted ways with half of the team's 2022 captains to try to get under the cap. All of this while the team is not done with transactions -- Dalvin Cook still presents as a cut candidate due to his age and contract structure.

The other major change that influenced how the team addresses the draft was the shift from Ed Donatell's Cover 2 shell defense to Brian Flores's aggressive man defense. Compared to the 2022 Vikings, Flores's 2021 Dolphins blitzed over twice as often and played with light boxes at roughly half the rate. On top of the front seven, one of the biggest changes in scheme is the Cover 2 alignment, which Donatell employed on nearly half of all defensive snaps compared to just 12% for Flores's 2021 Miami team. With one crop of rookies and free agents brought in to play in a Fangio style scheme, the defense would have to undergo a massive shift to succeed in a scheme that can only be described as the complete opposite of what was run in 2022.

Draft Needs

Cornerback - Arguably the Vikings' biggest need, the team was without a true CB1. Byron Murphy comes aboard as the most experienced player. Pegged a slot-only player through his first three years, Murphy spent most of his time in 2022 outside and had a career year. After that, the team looked to rely on improvements from their 2022 draft class with Andrew Booth and Akayleb Evans, two players that combined for fewer than 300 defensive snaps last season primarily due to injury. You can see how KAM and crew, confident in their scouting ability, are betting on health to affect the secondary for the better. But taking another bet on a young player is a smart move at a position where depth is always a good thing.
Interior Defensive Line - The loss of Dalvin Tomlinson -- who played 551 snaps last year and compiled 14 pressures -- leaves issues next to Harrison Phillips. Jonathan Bullard was third on the IDL with 319 snaps last season and returns on a one year deal. Tonga and Lynch had some flashes, and the team brought in Lowry. The rotation (optimistically) can get to competent. But finding a true winner on the inside of the line was viewed by many as a priority.
Wide Receiver - The Vikings starting personnel at WR heading in to the draft was Justin Jefferson (stud), KJ Osborn (decent), and... Jalen Nailor? Brandon Powell? Oh dear Lord don't tell me it's Jalen Reagor. The loss of Adam Thielen was expected, but nevertheless leaves a gaping hole next to JJ and KJ in the lineup. Keenan McCardell is arguably the best WR coach in the league, and playing with Jefferson would give one-on-one opportunities for any receiver. But having somebody that can actually win those one-on-ones remains a question.
Inside Linebacker - Eric Kendricks's jersey change marks the true end of an era at LB. Kendricks struggled in Donatell's scheme last season, as did most players. But he was a longtime leader on the defense and a valued community member. Jordan Hicks, Brian Asamoah, and Troy Reeder sit atop the depth chart. Hicks can be solid and Asamoah had flashes, but counting on this group as every down players is a risk to say the least.
Offensive Guard - Ed Ingram was one of the worst starting guards in the league last season. But he's a rookie. Maybe he gets better in year 2. Maybe he stays terrible. Even if you're optimistic there, Ezra Cleveland is entering a contract year at left guard. Adding interior offensive line depth is always smart.
Quarterback - This offseason, reports surfaced that the team and QB Kirk Cousins could not finalize a contract extension. That means for the first time in his Vikings tenure, Cousins is entering a contract year. Cousins has been an above average QB during his time in Minnesota. Last year saw him finish 4th in yards, but he was painfully mediocre at efficiency stats like TD percent (17th), ANY/A (18th), and ADOT (20th). Entering his age-35 season, it would be wise to look for a successor even if the team plans on retaining Cousins past 2023.

The Draft

*Indicates measure is taken from Pro Day
1.23 WR Jordan Addison, USC
Profile: Jr 5'11 173lbs 31.5 Arm\ 8.75 Hand 75.125 Wing* 4.49 40 1.57 10 34 VJ 10'2 BJ 4.19 SS* 7.05 3c 5.95 RAS*
2022 Stats: 11 Gm 59 Rec 875 Yds 8 TD 2 Drops
Steve Smith Sr: "Addison has one of the highest ceilings among WRs in this draft due to his blend of route running chops and his all around athleticism. He is a three level route runner: intermediate, deep, and short... The way he can get in and out of his breaks is so natural. He uses leverage. And he manipulates the DB consistently"
Addison -- a Biletnikoff Award winner during his Pitt days -- is one of the highest floor players in the class. He is a route running technician with proven dominance playing inside and outside. He had more than 3 yards per route run in two different offenses. He understands how to marry his athleticism and quickness with the breaks in his routes. He finds the DB's blind spot and forces them to lose. Addison is a bit on the small side, but not abnormally so given this draft class. He does have some concerns with his hands -- his drop rates as a freshman and sophomore were 14% and 10%, respectively -- but he showed improvement in this as a junior.
The need here is clear. As mentioned earlier, the WR depth past JJ and KJ is abysmal. Even with Thielen and Osborn on the roster in 2022, the Vikings needed juice in the WR room. The 2022 Vikings had one top 5 WR in yards per route run (Jefferson). There was no other receiver in the top 100. Teams were not worried about Thielen or Osborn. Teams could put two or three defenders on Jefferson without any fear of what anyone else might do to their defense. Hockenson fixed this a bit down the stretch, but an outside playmaker was still needed.
The real question here is why the team opted not to go for CB Joey Porter Jr, who filled what many considered to be the team's biggest need and was a higher ranked prospect for Lance Zierlein, PFF, Danny Kelly, Matt Miller, and Dane Brugler. The answer here -- if I can take a guess and stretch my logic a bit -- is that the need at WR2 was greater than the need at CB. Patrick Peterson was the biggest loss in the secondary, and the team brought in Byron Murphy to try to fill that role. On offense, Minnesota had not brought in a replacement for Adam Thielen. The depth chart past Jefferson and Osborn was filled with bodies that might not make a 53-man roster on a lot of teams.

Absolute Diff -37.3 -3 +597 +82
Percent Diff -24% -6% +81% +71%
The biggest thing to consider when evaluating this trade is that the Vikings came into the draft with 5 picks, only two of which were in the top 100. In my biased opinion, this was a home run trade, even if the traditional charts disagree. To take three swings at the bat instead of one is a humble and wise strategy, especially for a team with limited draft capital. The move looks even better in hindsight because there were no CBs taken between 87 and 102.
3.102 CB Mekhi Blackmon, USC
Profile: 6Sr 5'11" 178lbs 31" Arm 9.25" Hand 74.625" Wing 4.47 40 1.47 10 36 VJ 10'5" BJ 11 Bench 7.44 RAS
2022 Stats: 14 Gm 66 TKL 2 TFL 1 FF 15 PD 3 INT
Brett Kollman: "Feisty, physical press corner who definitely has to play more under control in the NFL to avoid flags, but he has all the competitiveness you want to see from a potential CB1 at the next level. Never backs down from anyone. Has easy gas to stay in control of a route from top down, even against true burners. Legit 4.4 speed and gets up to it quickly. Outstanding ball production... Held up extremely well despite being targeted often. Battle tested, aggressive, and confident... Very similar to Desmond Trufant."
An unrecruited high school positionless player out of high school that signed with JuCo San Mateo, Blackmon followed up four seasons at Colorado with a breakout 2022 campaign as one of the best defenders on the USC defense. The Trojans played a man-heavy scheme, which let Blackmon shine. He has great anticipation and instincts. His production this year says as much. He plays bigger than his size, and he has inside-outside versatility. He will have to clean up some of his physicality to avoid flags at the next level. He will also have to refine his technique to stay with the more complex routes he'll see. But he is a strong culture and scheme fit for what Brian Flores is bringing to the defense.
The need at CB was obvious even before hiring Flores. The Vikings ranked 31st in passing yards allowed, 26th in Passing DVOA, and 24th in EPA allowed per pass attempt. Bringing in Byron Murphy helps. So do the healthy returns of Booth and Evans. But Murphy has not yet shown that he can be a consistently great player (or at least not markedly better than what we got out of Patrick Peterson last year). And Booth and Evans are unproven. Blackmon -- taken with the last pick on Day 2 -- is not expected to come in and be Jalen Ramsey or Sauce Gardner. But in a shift to a more aggressive man-coverage defense with a thin CB room, Blackmon is an upside player that will have every chance to take a starting spot on a porous defense.

On top of entering the weekend with a mere 5 draft picks in the current year, the Vikings also entered with a mere 5 draft picks in the 2024 class (3rd rounder traded for Hockenson, 5th rounder traded for Reagor). Dropping 15 picks in a relatively flat part of the draft while adding a mid-Day 3 pick is good business given this team's lack of capital.
*Here we assume a future pick in round n is valued at the middle pick of round n+1, not accounting for compensatory picks. In this case, a 2024 5th is equated to pick 176.
4.134 S Jay Ward, LSU
Profile: Sr 6'0.5" 188lbs 32.5" Arm 8.25" Hand 76.875" Wing 4.55 40 1.54 10 34.5 VJ 11' BJ 4.35 Shuttle\ 7.31 3c 16 Bench 6.70 RAS*
2022 Stats: 13 Gm 60 TKL 2.5 TFL 5 PD 1 INT 2 FR TD
Nate Tice: "A ton of fun. I just like this fit because of Brian Flores's defense. Just picture all of those mixture guys that the Patriots have used over the years... Jay Ward can be that"
A three year starter with reps at safety, slot, and outside CB, Ward is one of the most versatile players in the class. He possesses excellent length and movement skills. His experience at CB make him a fluid player in coverage. In the run game, Ward's size is a concern. His 188lbs Combine weight puts him in just the second percentile for safeties. This translates to issues with taking on blocks. He is a very aggressive player, beelining to the ball as soon as it's out. But his size coupled with his impatient playstyle lead to a lot of missed tackles. He was also flagged seven times last season.
In his final season in Miami, Flores was extremely creative with how he employed his safeties. Jevon Holland had the 2nd most blitzes in the league at the position. The number 1 player? His teammate Brandon Jones. With the defense taking on Flores's amoeba identity, an aggressive player with experience at multiple positions has the potential to find a role early on. The defense will look to utilize him similar to how Jevon Holland was used as a rookie. And with Harrison Smith well into the twilight of his career, Ward is a timely pick as the team attempts to thread the needle in their competitive rebuild.

It's a bit strange to see Adofo-Mensah move away from the analytics charts in favor of the traditional ones, but the value swap here is not absurd. The real question with this trade will be if Roy ends up being a true contributor.
5.141 NT Jaquelin Roy, LSU
Profile: Jr 6'3" 305lbs 32.75" Arm 10.125" Hand 78.125" Wing 5.13 40\ 1.82 10* 26" VJ* 8'5" BJ* 5.00 Shuttle 8.01 3c 30 Bench 3.72 RAS*
2022 Stats: 13 Gm 49 TKL 3.5 TFL 0.5 SCK
Lance Zierlein: " The more you watch, the more you like the way Roy plays the game... Despite limited starting experience at LSU, he already displays signs of a rush plan and the athletic talent to execute it. Roy is an ascending talent with the potential to become a quality starter. "
After a 30 tackle, 1.5 sack campaign as a rotational player in 2021, Roy shifted from a penetrating 3T position to more of a traditional nose tackle under new HC Brian Kelly. This transition let Roy shine as a run stuffer. He eats space and is incredibly tough to move from his spot. He averaged almost 52 snaps a game in 2022 and his motor never let up. He has some work to do if he wants to be a three down player, particularly as a pass rusher. His bend and balance in this front are especially lacking.
The Vikings' front office seems to be a lot more comfortable with the current IDL room than I am. Harrison Phillips is a plus starter. Past that, the roster is filled with unproven youth or proven subpar players. As a 5th round pick, Roy has an uphill battle to separate himself from that group. But he's a good lottery ticket at this price. His positional versatility ensures that the defense can simply put their best players on the field.
5.164 QB Jaren Hall, BYU
Profile: RSr 6'0" 207lbs 39.75" Arm 9.5" Hand 71.875" Wing 4.63 40\ 1.59 10* 4.19 Shuttle* 7.06 3c* 7.96 RAS*
2022 Stats: 12 Gm 248 Comp 376 Att 66% Comp 3171 Yds 31 TD 6 INT 86 Rush 789 Rush Yds 9 RUsh TD
Kwesi Adofo-Mensah: "We added a really talented player that has a ton of upside... The ability to make decisions, throw the football accuracy, deal with conflict when it comes his way, and sometimes try to make a play outside the framework of the playcall. He does all those things at a really great level... That's an outstanding young man. I'd like to see him lead my team or any organization I'm a part of."
Despite being the third oldest prospect in the QB class, Hall only has 24 starts under his belt due to two years on religious mission and one year with a hip injury. But when Hall took over for Zach Wilson in 2021, he hit the ground running. BYU went 10-3 in that first year with Hall compiling a 4:1 TD:INT ratio. He is a two time team captain, and all reports of his character are off the charts.
Hall is a poised pocket passer capable of extending plays and picking up yardage on the ground. He was only sacked 12 times in 2022, which is a testament to both BYU's offensive line and Hall's ability to create under pressure. There are conflicting opinions on Hall's upside and arm strength, with Lance Zierlein calling his arm "unimpressive" while Kyle Crabbs claiming that hall has a "live arm with the ability to throw with juice off platform". Where there was near-universal agreement was in his understanding of the scheme, as Hall operated BYU's RPO-heavy offense like a machine. He has a clean release and quickly gets into a rhythm. His largest universal concerns are his age (he turned 25 in March) and his injury history (missed 20 games in the last 4 years). He also has ball security issues with 13 fumbles over his career.
I expected the Vikings to draft a QB in this class. The only question was if it would have been via a trade up on Day 1 or a flyer on Day 3 (or a falling Will Levis). With his age, size, and injury history, there are plenty of questions about what Hall can be. He will have a year in practice to put together his audition tape to be Kirk Cousins's replacement -- it's certainly a viable path for this team to take a RiddeHowell/Mills-esque year to evaluate Hall while they continue retooling the defense. But the more likely path is that Hall becomes a long-term backup for the team. Cousins has been the model of health, but that doesn't mean that QB2 is an unimportant position. Sean Mannion, Kellen Mond, and Nick Mullens have manned that position to various degrees over the past few years. None has shown that they can be a competent plug-in player if needed. There is some hope that Hall -- who operated the BYU offense with a mechanic efficiency -- can be that player.
7.222 RB DeWayne McBride, UAB
Profile: Jr 5'10" 209lbs 30.625" Arms 9.5" Hands 73.125" Wing 20 Bench\*
2022 Stats: 11 Gm 233 Att 1713 Yds 19 TD 7.4 Y/A 2 Rec 10 Rec Yds
Dane Brugler: "Overall, McBride is unproven as a pass catcher and blocker, which might restrict his NFL role, but his contact balance, vision and lateral agility are among the best this running back draft class has to offer"
In an era of advanced metrics and Combine showmanship, perhaps the trait that has gone underappreciated more than any other in RB scouting is balance. McBride may have the best balance in the entire RB class outside of Bijan Robinson. He comes from a heavy outside zone scheme at UAB, where he led the FBS in yards per game and set school records for single-game and single-season rushing. McBride absorbs contact like a sponge. His short area burst is strong, and he makes defenders miss with power and finesse. McBride has ideal size and toughness. His concerns are simple. He was not utilized as a receiver in college, and he had more career fumbles than catches in that time. McBride profiles as a two-down player at the next level. Although Adofo-Mensah has voiced his belief that McBride's passing game usage was a product of scheme rather than ability, McBride still has to prove that he is more than just a short yardage runner in the NFL.
After spending a pick in back to back years on RB and re-signing Mattison to a modest contract, RB was a bit of an unexpected pick for this regime. Dalvin Cook still seems to be movable (a likely cut candidate at this point), which would make this pick more logical. Chandler struggled with injuries as a rookie, but both he and Nwangwu profile more as speedy scatbacks than true between-the-tackle runners like Mattison. Even Mattison has never been a true three-down back. McBride plays much more similarly to Mattison than the other backs on the team. He will try to carve out a role behind him as the future thunder to the lightning provided by Chandler and Nwangwu.


FB Zach Ojile, Minnesota Duluth
Profile: 6Sr 6'0" 241lbs 31.5" Arms 8.5" Hands 75.5" Wing 4.78 40\ 1.79 10* 31" VJ* 9'1" BJ* 4.40 Shuttle* 31 Bench* 4.15 RAS*

A Twin Cities native, Ojile was a late addition to the roster, joining after a May rookie minicamp tryout. Ojile played LB, QB, FS, and RB in high school but found a role as an H-Back at UMD. He served as a team captain the past two seasons and finishes his collegiate career with over 1100 total yards and 24 total TDs. He was an All-Conference player for the DII NSIC Bulldogs. Whether Ojile participates at FB or TE, he'll need to prove his versatility to beat out the veterans on the depth chart. Working in his favor is Kevin O'Connell's shift to a more base-heavy offense in 2023.
WR Cephus Johnson, Southeastern Louisiana
Profile: 6Sr 6'4" 223lbs 33.25" Arm\ 8.5" Hand* 78.625" WIng* 4.57 40* 1.59 10* 36.5" VJ* 10'1" BJ* 4.39 Shuttle* 7.25 3c* 18 Bench* 9.48 RAS*

Johnson is making the fulltime switch from QB to WR as he attempts to latch on to an NFL practice squad. He earned the starting role for South Alabama as a redshirt junior before transferring to SE Louisiana, where he took some snaps at WR in spring games. Johnson's stats were unimpressive as a starting QB, notching just 1354 yards and a 2:1 TD:INT ratio in 11 starts. He has good size and instincts as a runner, but he has basically no experience playing WR.
WR Lucky Jackson, W Kentucky / XFL DC Defenders

Jackson last put on a college uniform before the pandemic for Western Kentucky, where his 2019 season saw him put up over 1100 yards on 94 receptions. Following his college days, Jackson spent time in the CFL and the Spring League before joining the XFL's DC Defenders and becoming an All-XFL receiver.
WR Malik Knowles, Kansas St

2022 Stats: 14 Gm 48 Rec 725 YDs 2 TD 8 Rush 164 Rush Yds 3 Rush TD 23 KR 592 KR Yds
Knowles is a vertical threat with good size and length. He offers value as a kick returner and leaves Kansas State with a top 5 rank in all-purpose yards. Knowles is an undeveloped route runner that struggles with quick change-of-direction. He also has trouble with press coverage. He'll need to prove his value on special teams, where he has plenty of collegiate experience as a kick returner.
WR Grant Maag, North Dakota

2022 Stats: 12 Gm 41 Rec 540 Yds 5 TDs
Maag was brought in following the announcement of Ben Ellefson's retirement. He is an Inver Grove Heights native and a graduate of St Croix Lutheran in St Paul. He leaves North Dakota with over 2000 yards over his five years and served as a team captain the past two seasons. His size gives him an advantage with a shorter WR group ahead of him, but Maag is a far cry from a roster lock.
WR Thayer Thomas, NC State

A multisport athlete that was drafted by the Red Sox in 2019, Thomas walked onto the Wolfpack football team and got onto the field any way he could. In 2018, he saw work as a receiver, punt returner, and passer. Thomas has good hands (a career drop rate of 4%) and a high work ethic, but he is an undeveloped route runner that struggles to create much after the catch. He will need to prove his worth on special teams if he wants to make the roster.
TE Ben Sims, Baylor

2022 Stats: 12 Gm 31 Rec 255 Yds 3 TDs 2 Drops 1 Rush TD
Sims projects as a blocking tight end with limited ability as a receiver. He's a patient run blocker with good balance and toughness, but he is still cleaning up some technique. He isn't a creator with the ball in his hands and his tape fails to demonstrate the explosiveness that his testing suggests.
OL Alan Ali, TCU
Profile: RSr 6'4" 301lbs 32.875" Arm 9.5" Hand 77.625" Wing 5.23 40\ 1.89 10* 26.5" VJ 8'5" BJ* 4.91 Shuttle* 7.94 3c* 3.80 RAS*
A 5 year starter for TCU and SMU, Ali is a fundamentally sound center prospect with good body control and core strength. He has experience playing at all 5 OL positions but spent most of the past 4 years at center. His lack of athleticism and length are likely the reason he went undrafted.
OT Jacky Chen, Pace
Profile: RSr 6'5 1/4" 299lbs 10" Hand\ 34.5" Arm* 80.75" Wing* 5.41 40* 1.81 10* 29" VJ* 8'10" BJ* 4.74 Shuttle* 7.90 3c* 24 Bench* 5.39 RAS*
It's hard to find very much information on an undrafted lineman from a DII school whose toughest opponent was the University of New Haven. Chen is an OT prospect that is viewed as a ball of clay. Chen's 40 yard dash and 3 cone were underwhelming to say the least, but he was an above average tester in burst and explosiveness drills. That combined with his length make him an interesting project.
EDGE Andre Carter II, Army

2022 Stats: 10 Gm 41 TKL 7 TFL 3.5 SCK 2 PD
The highest profile UDFA signing of the class, Carter was getting 1st round buzz this time last year. At that time, Carter was coming off an 18.5 TFL / 15.5 sack season. However, Carter struggled to repeat his production as a senior, notching just 3.5 sacks. Carter finished out the draft cycle with lackluster testing, failing to run under a 4.90 in the 40 yard dash and weighing in at a mere 256 lbs -- a big concern given his 81 inch wingspan and towering stature. Carter has a ton of upside, but he doesn't have the frame to be a real NFL player right now. After 4 years training to be an officer in the US Army, he will need at least one season (maybe more) in an NFL weight room where he can focus on building muscle mass. He'll look to follow the mold of fellow Army player Alejandro Villanueva, who added 43 lbs to his 277 lbs frame entering the league before becoming a 7-year starter. Luckily, he joined the team with one of the best training facilities in the league.

2022 Stats: 13 Gm 23 TKL 2 TFL 2 SCK 1 FF
Quite simply, Aho is an athletic freak that should find his way onto the team thanks to the International Player Pathway roster spot. He takes pride in his speed and athleticism, but he also understands the limitations to his game. Aho was a solid rotational player for SMU. He will look to follow in the footsteps of other International Pathway players like Efe Obada and Jordan Mailata.
DT Calvin Avery, Illinois
Profile: RSr 6'1" 343 lbs 10" Hand\ 32.5" Arm 81.87" Wing 5.37 40* 1.84 10* 30.5" VJ* 8'5" BJ* 8.01 3c* 31 Bench* 3.12 RAS*
2022 Stats: 13 Gm 23 TKL 2 TFL 1 PD
Avery is a former four star recruit out of Texas, earning snaps in 12 games as a true freshman. He started 12 games in 2022, primarily at nose tackle. He has a wide, large frame that makes him hard to move. However, he is an underwhelming athlete to say the least, and his statistical production is nearly non-existent.
LB Abraham Beauplan, Marshall
Profile: RSr 5'11" 241 lbs 9.25" Hand 31.75" Arm 77 1/4" Wing 4.62 Shuttle 35.5" VJ 9'9" BJ 7.33 3c 22 Bench 4.52 RAS
2022 Stats: 12 Gm 66 TKL 6.5 TFL 1 SCK 3 PD
Beauplan started the draft process by making an appearance on Bruce Feldman's Freaks List, reportedly squatting as much as 565 lbs and benching as much as 285. The few reports that exist on Beauplan suggest he's an urgent, downhill run defender that will look to carve out a role on special teams early on.
LB Wilson Huber, Cincinnati
Profile: 6Sr 6'4" 241lbs 9.75" Hand 32.375" Arm\ 80" Wing* 4.70 40* 1.66 10* 35" VJ* 10'4" BJ* 4.45 Shuttle* 6.91 3c* 18 Bench* 8.34 RAS*
2022 Stats: 13 Gm 54 TKL 6.5 TFL 1 SCK 1 PD
A 3 star recruit out of Indiana, Huber started his career at Cincinnati as a TE. He played a hybrid role in his first 2 non-redshirt seasons, earning snaps on offense, defense, and special teams. He made a full role switch to the defensive side of the ball in 2020 and eventually earned the team captain moniker in 2022. Huber had some solid testing despite profiling as more of a thumper.
LB Ivan Pace Jr, Cincinnati
Profile: Sr 5'10.5" 231lbs 30.25" Arm 9.5" Hand 72" Wing 4.59 40\ 1.70 10* 35" VJ 9'8" BJ* 4.40 Shuttle * 7.18 3c* 22 Bench* 5.71 RAS*
2022 Stats: 13 Gm 137 TKL 21.5 TFL 10 SCK 3 FF 4 PD
Ranked the 11th best LB for Daniel Jeremiah, 9th for Dane Brugler, and 7th for PFF, many thought Pace could have gone as early as Round 3. Pace was a one year starter for the Bearcats after transferring from Miami (Ohio), and he hit the ground running. He led the AAC in tackles and TFLs. He is a smaller player (although not abnormally so in today's game) that plays with his hair on fire. He gives tremendous effort on every play and is always around the ball. Pace is a super tough player that loves to tackle. His size is a concern; he gets washed out of plays too easily. He is also lacking in coverage skills, struggling to stay connected in man coverage. Still, it's incredible that Pace went undrafted. He's an easy special teams projection as a rookie with the upside to be put in position to win under Flores.
CB CJ Coldon, Oklahoma
Profile: 6Sr 5'10" 186lbs\ 8.375" Hand* 31.125" Arm* 75.125" Wing* 4.60 40* 1.58 10* 37 1/2" VJ* 10'5" BJ* 4.24 Shuttle* 7.31 3c* 3.92 RAS*
2022 Stats: 12 Gm 42 TKL 2 TFL 4 INT 6 PBU
Coldon is an instinctual football player that relies on his feel to create ball production. He spent 5 years at Wyoming before transferring to Oklahoma and leading the team in INTs and PBUs. In zone, Coldon watches the QB and looks for the right cue to understand when and where the ball is headed.
CB NaJee Thompson, Georgia Southern
Profile: 5'10" 200lbs 9.125" Hand 32.75" Arm 76.625" Wing 4.57 40\ 1.63 10* 32" VJ* 9'8" BJ* 4.56 Shuttle* 7.40 3c* 13 Bench* 1.59 RAS*
2022 Stats: 13 Gm 37 TKL 1 TFL 11 PD 1 INT
Thompson's love for the game is undeniable. After struggling to latch onto the Georgia Southern WR room, Thompson approached his head coach asking to be exclusively a special teams player. He relishes being a gunner on punts. He eventually got moved to CB in 2021, logging 557 snaps at the position in 2022. He's undeveloped at the position, but his special teams prowess gives him a good shot at the roster.
CB Jaylin Williams, Indiana
Profile: RSr 5'9" 184lbs 9.125" Hand 29.875" Arm 71.75" Wing 4.43 40\ 1.58 10* 34.5" BJ* 9'11" BJ* 4.20 Shuttle* 7.01 3c* 13 Bench* 5.54 RAS*
2022 Stats: 10 Gm 40 TKL 2.5 TFL 7 PD 1 FR 1 BLK
A longtime role player for the Hoosiers before becoming a fulltime starter in 2019, Williams's 6 career INTs were the most amongst active players on the team last season. He earned second team All-Confernece honors in 2020 and was an honorable mention in 2021.
K Jack Podlesny, Georgia
Profile: RSr 6'0" 195lbs 29.25" Arms 9" Hands 74.75" Wing
2022 Stats: 31 Att 26 Made 50 Long 109 Kickoff 72 Touchbacks 74 PAT Att 73 PAT Made
Ranked as Dane Brugler's 4th kicker and Lance Zierlein's 3rd kicker, Podlesny enters Vikings camp following a career that saw him walk on to Georgia's football team and finish with an 82% hit rate. He hit all but one extra point last season for the national champion Bulldogs. A concern with Podlesny is his leg strength. His accuracy beyond 40 yards falls to just 54%. His clutchness may also come into question as he missed two kicks in the national championship semifinals against Ohio State.

2024 Needs

Starters Needed: QB, OG, EDGE, DT -- Whether due to expiring contracts (Cousins, Cleveland, Davenport, Hunter) or overall suckitude (Ingram, Lowry), we need to find new starters at this positions in 2024. Could we go on with average-level free agents? Maybe. Should we? Maybe not.
We'll see how the group plays: CB, LB, RB -- These are positions where the front office is counting on young players (Booth, Evans, Asamoah) to fill the roles of departed starters. If those players take that step up, these positions drop on the needs list. Otherwise, we're in for a rough season.
Depth needed: WR -- The depth after Jefferson, Osborn, and Addison is not great. And Osborn is entering a contract year. Unless Keenan McCardell works some magic with Jalen Nailor or Trishton Jackson or Thayer Thomas, this should be a position we add to next year.

Final Thoughts

Versatility. When we look at this Vikings draft class, that's the first word that comes to mind, and it comes in big bold letters. Addison has inside-outside versatility. So does Mekhi Blackmon. Jay Ward is the most versatile of the group, capable of playing every DB position plus some spot snaps at LB. Roy has been productive everywhere from 0T to 4i. And the team has talked about how much they believe McBride can contribute as a pass catcher on top of his bruiser mindset as a between-the-tackles runner.
On offense, this shift seems to stem from a philosophical change following the TJ Hockenson acquisition last year. O'Connell's unit went from trying to copy-paste Sean McVay's outside zone scheme (largely a 3WR offense) to Kyle Shanahan's outside zone scheme (largely a TE-FB offense). And in that mold, O'Connell was looking for players he could use to create the illusion of complexity. That is, how can we employ versatile players to present defenses the threat of multiplicity?
On defense, the answer is a lot simpler. By bringing over Brian Flores, the team is hoping for a jolt in tenacity and an overall move to a hybrid amoeba scheme. You can look historically at how Bill Belichick has utilized flexibility in his defenses to maximize his gameplan for whatever offensive scheme is next on the menu. You can look at players on the line of scrimmage that have experience in both 43 and 34 schemes (Hunter, Phillips, Lynch, Bullard). And in the secondary, look no further than the selection of Jay Ward as an attempt to clone players like Jevon Holland and Kyle Dugger.
As Adofo-Mensah has repeatedly said, he approaches his job with humility. He listens to those around him and he finds the point where stories marry data to make informed decisions. And in O'Connell, he found someone who shares that mentality. With the emphasis on versatility, that mindset can now be applied on a weekly (and play-by-play) basis to opponents. We'll see how successful that strategy is as the team continues to straddle the line between competitive and rebuilder, but there is certainly an energy around the fanbase with the continued success of the offense and the addition of Brian Flores.

2023.06.06 23:34 ChilliTheDog631 New to swift, got an app need for my Drone and remote pilot company. Checklists, databases. Need some assistance please.

Hello! Im probably just another post to you guys but I need of some help. (OFC....) I am (trying to) build a IOS (and iPadOS, soon) app that is a checklist, for scheduled maintence and check-ups. The app will need to talk to a database somehow (Excel or MS Database etc) to sync all the maintence logs to it, so if we get audited by CASA we can show logs of this regular checking. This will also have a 2nd database log of Pre-flight checklist. Ive tried to search this interesting app idea for at least inspiration, however it's either out of date or not want I need. I have attempted code but has no real use, and I don't understand story boards, which once I accidentally touched it lost all my progress in simulator (doesn't show the menu I have in code). Images will be commented along with code screenshots. Thank You SOO much in advance. -Chilli

2023.06.05 19:40 bibi_monegata acho que meu namorado me manipula (conselhos)

começamos o relacionamento ano passado já de um jeito bem conturbado. quando a gente só ficava meio que não se via muito e eu, por estar focada em estudar, me afastei um tempo, mas ainda nos falavamos (só não nos víamos). quando desatolei de tudo voltei a falar com ele normalmente e tentei fazer com que nos vissemos. no dia da 2ª prova do Enem sai pra ver ele, exausta, e me senti meio rejeitada, ele falava comigo bem pouco e jogou a culpa pra mim, falando que eu que tinha feito isso. uns dias depois nos vimos de novo no jogo do Brasil e foi bem bagunçado pq eu estava com minhas amigas e disse que TALVEZ daria pra gente se ver, ele fez um drama absurdo, larguei minhas amigas e fui ver ele, brigamos e depois nos resolvemos, isso num intervalo de 30min. ainda não tinhamos nada então segui tratando ele como um ficante, mesmo gostando muito dele, e isso pq ele já tinha me dito uma vez que não tinha interesse em relacionamento sério por agora.
brigamos de novo e no dia que fomos conversar para resolver isso (que partiu de mim depois de mais um drama de ele falando que não aguentaria meus sumiços, que ele tava confuso com a vida dele e pipipipopopo) acabamos nos resolvendo e decidindo ficar juntos, ele me pediu em namoro e aceitei.
no começo só flores, a gente se dava bem demais demais, passamos o carnaval juntos e ali já começou a ficar estranho pq tudo que eu queria fazer era "uma ideia ruim", nem minhas amigas consegui ver, só saímos com os amigos dele. agora tá um caos, ele vive se fazendo de vítima e me sinto mal de não ajudar ou estar a postos. até meu psicólogo já disse que, por mais que ele não possa me indicar uma ação, deveria avaliar se ficar nessa relação é bom pra mim, se é o que quero mesmo. mas não sei, eu amo ele só que essas coisas me desgastam, de 7 dias 4 a gente discute e sempre ele vira o problema pra mim, quando digo que estou mais subtraindo na vida dele que qualquer outra coisa ele diz que não e que me ama pipipipopopo.
teve uma questão de eu colocar na balança um peso muito maior que deveria minha ida pra uma faculdade fora da minha cidade, ele disse que não tentaria relacionamento a distância então eu meio que pensei em não ir pra facul que queria por ele (me arrependo amargamente pq era pra eu estar encerrando o primeiro período).
esse fim de semana foi a gota d'água pra mim em relação a isso, pela primeira vez pensei em terminar pq aconteceu o seguinte: fui viajar (sábado), um bate e volta pra assistir um jogo do meu time, disse que voltaria no dia seguinte (domingo) e pedi pra que ele fosse lá pra casa depois, a previsão era pra que chegasse por volta de 15h. mas a estrada é imprevisível,e foi como imaginei, acabou se estendendo mais por problemas na estrada, avisei pra ele que chegaria por volta de 18h e que sabia que provavelmente não daria pra gente se ver por ele ter aula no dia seguinte. aí já começou tudo de novo, ele dizendo que era foda e que eu disse que seria bem antes a nossa chegada e que não compensava ele pagar Uber pra minha casa e ficar SÓ 3h lá, entendi o lado dele, mesmo achando que seria possível sim, nisso ele já tava bem estranho, me respondendo seco, pedi pra conversar e liguei pra ele, disse que não queria pq já tinha remoido isso p dia todo e que foi "um dos piores dias da vida dele". expliquei que queria muito ver ele mas não tinha sido culpa minha, não tinha como eu vir voando por cima dos carros né? aí ele disse que EU NAO QUIS IR VER ELE quando cheguei e que não tinha como eu estar cansada já que as mais de 8h num carro não foram cansativas já que eu tava só sentada e não capinando um lote o dia todo, isso acabou comigo. perguntei qual a diferença dele vir pra minha casa e de eu ir pra casa dele já que eu precisaria ir embora no mesmo tempo, ele respondeu que lá na casa dele conseguiria adiantar as coisas pro dia seguinte no tempo que seria de percurso pra ir e voltar da minha casa (cerca de 5-8min...) em casa sendo que teve o dia todo pra fazer, e eu não precisaria (não tô trabalhando atualmente só estudando em casa). agora de manhã me mandou mensagem pedindo desculpas, mas meio que livrando a dele dizendo que acha que não descontou nada em mim, só estava chateado.
tem a questão sexual também, que antes era bem bom e agora bem bleh, isso não seria um critério pra término (na minha visão) mas acho que somando ao resto tá me incomodando 10x mais tbm.
vivendo nesse morde e assopra ha 6 meses e tô me questionando muito se devo continuar. concordam com ele nesse negócio das 8h de viagem não ser cansativo? acham que ele tá me manipulando? conselhos?

2023.06.05 19:08 Working_Alps_2463 Eu sou babaca por sentir vontade de terminar meu relacionamento?

Conheci uma garota aos 16 anos (hoje tenho 21) nos aproximamos e ficamos muito amigos, gostavamos um do outro, mas por ela se envolver com outro cara achei melhor me afastar.
Depois de 5 anos afastados, voltamos a trabalhar a juntos e nos aproximamos, ela estava solteira, começamos a conversar e rolou de tudo um pouco, pedi ela em namoro um tempo depois e ela aceitou, levei ela no terraço Italia e a pedi em namoro, ela aceitou, ficamos felizes e tudo mais, no mesmo dia, enquanto eu dirigia pra casa ela estava bebendo gin e acabou ficando bebada e me falando sobre coisas que eu jamais quis saber, pessoas que ela ja [email protected] ficou e tudo mais, aquilo me feriu, embora eu saiba que todos tem um passado, nao quero me pegar imaginando minha mulher com outras pessoas, falei com ela mas ela estava bebada.
No dia seguinte ela me disse que não era aquela aliança de namoro que ela queria, queria uma outra, e logo eu que planejei tudo tao bem, descubro que ela nao gostou, enfim.
Algumas semanas depois, eu tive alguns problemas que me fizeram ficar extremamente triste e decepcionado com tudo e eu so queria alguem pra conversar, avisei a minha namorada que depois conversavamos (Assim que tudo se acalmasse, pois estava no trabalho).
Ela se levantou, pegou a bolsa dela e foi embora, dizendo que precisava arrumar a casa e me largou la. Preciso reforçar que ela é o tipo de pessoa que em qualquer briga, vai distorcer a realidade e fazer com que eu saía como o culpado de tudo o que é triste de se conviver, todas as brigas que tivemos, ela distorcia as coisas a ponto de me fazer achar que eu era um desgraçado que nao merecia nada, durante noites me senti um lixo.
Sexta-feira e sabado passei na casa dela e o unico tratamento que tive foi como se eu fosse uma mão de obra, cheguei na casa dela e ela sequer me deu um Oi, perguntou como eu estava, cortei o cabelo no sabado, vesti uma nova roupa e comprei um novo perfume (Phantom, Paco Rabanne) ela simplesmente ignorou tudo isso e sequer me deu atenção, pelo contrário me recebeu com o silêncio e me deu um pano pra passar no chão, mas ok, fui ajudar ela a passar pano.
Enquanto eu passava o pano fazia diversas perguntas pra ela: "Como foi o dia dela, quais os planos pra hoje a noite, se ela queria fazer algo" mas fui ignorado em todas as perguntas, e ela so me respondeu quando terminei de passar pano:"Agora que vc terminou, limpa o armario".
Devo reforçar que nao sou o melhor namorado do mundo, mas com frequência compro flores, chocolate, declaro o quanto amo ela, cuido dela como se fosse a coisa mais importante que tenho e ela simplesmente nao retribui 10% de tudo, as vezes ela só ignora tudo e me da tratamento de silêncio e isso é extremamente depressivo de se conviver.
E isso é tudo uma pequena parte dos acontecimentos, sou babaca??

2023.06.05 16:01 piggyloh4 Eu amo plantas...

Pode parecer estranho ksks Mas prefiro mil vezes ganhar uma muda de alguma planta do que um buquê. Buquês duram muito poucos e msm que eternizados em algo não passaram daquilo. Já mudas irão crescer, se desenvolver e isso é incrível. Eu particularmente gosto de pegar mudas para acompanhar o seu desenvolvimento, velas crescer e ficarem grandes. Fico toda boba quando a minha suculenta da brotos e não vejo a hora da minha rosa do deserto dar flores... Qual cor vai ser? Eu não sei, é um mistério. E isso é facinante. Quero um dia ter uma casa com um Jardim, cuidar dele com carinho.

2023.06.05 04:35 pieldelcuello Streak 34: Un buen domingo

Hoy fue un día absolutamente perfecto. Para empezar, me levanté muy temprano y con mi novia fuimos a un parque que está muy cerca de nosotros para correr. Corrimos por cuarenta minutos y después decidimos caminar por el parque por poco más tiempo, disfrutando los árboles y muchísimas de las flores que estaban floreciendo.
Después fuimos a la casa de sus primos y pasamos mucho tiempo con ellos y sus perros. Los perros eran muy pequeños y peludos y sus temperamentos eran muy preciosos, dulces, y cariñosos. De hecho, antes de conocerlos por primera vez, a mi novia no le gustan mucho los perros pequeños. Pero, porque ellos son muy muy dulces, después ella empezó a gustar los perros pequeños y ahorita estamos pensando adoptar un perro como ellos un día.
Nos lo pasamos muy bien, y después regresamos a nuestro departamento para descansar y recargar antes de empezar nuestra semana. Estudié un poco español cuando ella estaba leyendo su libro. Qué día perfecto, y espero que el siguiente fin de semana sea igual de bueno.

2023.06.04 12:29 Alizarinnnnn O Defunto da Flor que Viveu para Morrer

Flores, os enfeites da vida. Nascem, crescem e abrem seus botões. Ganham seu significado com pétalas erguidas. Os olhos olham As mãos arrancam As mangueiras regam E o adubo nutre.
Tão belas quanto manipuladas são as flores fadadas ao resto da sombra de uma vida curta sob um embrulho e laço de presente.
É onde o significado dado por nós mais vale do que seu objetivo dado pela natureza. Sejam as rosas e o amor, As lavandas e seu odor, Ou os antúrios e o desejo ardido de conquistar.
A natureza de todas é a mesma Mesmo que esta não importe mais para os que as recebem.
O arranque acontece porque são belas. Porém essa mesma beleza que atrapalha suas jornadas, É a que chama a atenção dos que as deixam polinizadas.
A vida natural desta foi impedida por uma simples razão: O desejo de agradar uma alma abandonada sem perdão. Enfeitando uma casa repleta da companhia da solidão.

Presidential Term of Thomas Custer (1889-1893) American Interflow Timeline
After 12 years of trials and errors, Thomas Custer would finally rise and claim the presidency in a Post-Barnum era. With the nation being fundamentally changed in the past 8 years and with the effect of Barnum’s administration still very prevalent, like the still persistent Revelationist and Communard issues, Custer would need to uncharacteristically tread carefully to prevail in such a climate.
President Thomas Custer’s Cabinet
Vice President - Alfred A. Taylor
Secretary of State - Francis Cockrell
Secretary of the Treasury - Adlai Stevenson I
Secretary of War - John Potter Stockton
Secretary of the Navy - Arthur Sewall
Secretary of the Interior - Thomas Goode Jones
Attorney General - Jesse Root Grant II
Secretary of Sustenance - Sylvester Pennoyer
Secretary of Public Safety - Lyon G. Tyler (resigned May 1891), John R. McLean
(read about the campaigns against the radicals here) Left? Right? No, Custerite!
During his election campaign, the president promised a wide-range of groups things he would do in a future administration. Appealing to liberals, conservatives, nationalists, populists, militarists, anti-imperialists, and pro-reconciliationists, Custer would be flexible and non-partisan in his policies in order to fulfil such promises. Custer would first appeal to the anti-imperialist wing of his support by renegotiating to United States' promised port in the Congo during the Berlin Conference, crafted by Secretary Francis Cockrell, the United States would sell their land claims to the French on August 1889 for $1,250,000. The move would receive praise from anti-imperialists like Senators George Boutwell (F-MA) and Grover Cleveland (C-NY), and Representatives Edward Atkinson (C-MA) and John Wanamaker (P-PA), although opposition was brought in by some Commons and the old Barnumites like Representative William McKinley (F-OH).

Appealing to the pro-reconciliationists would be a harder feat than any of this. Ever since the end of the Civil War, stigmatism between the black and white communities in the south grew, it was further boosted by the barring policy of the Davis and Hamlin administrations which divided communities between whites and blacks to prevent violence. Forced integration was implemented by Custer with the Integration and Co-operation Act of 1889 which merged local segregated communities and forced some citizens living in those communities to live within the other group's area. Anti-reconciliationists like Senator Arthur Pue Gorman (C-MD) and Representative Benjamin Tillman (C-SC) opposed the bill, as they were elected within or with the backing of a white-only segregated community, though the pro-reconciliationists, which composed of both of the old pro and anti Barnumites, populists, salvationists, and progressives pushed the bill to pass Congress.
Capitol Building 1889
The act faced major scrutiny from both black and white anti-reconciliationists, which pushed it as dictatorial and a breach of their civil liberties. The case made it all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States in the case Jennings v. Gibbs, in which Florida county lawyer William Sherman Jennings sued Representative Thomas Van Renssalaer Gibbs (F-FL) for 'infringing on and decrying civil liberties' by his support of the act. Gibbs' lawyers sighted the act was to end possible future violence between the two groups and claimed it was for the overall wellbeing of the country and to the citizen as their move was paid for by the government itself and that it was within the government's authority to enforce such acts, while Jennings sighted the First Amendment, claiming to this act violated the right of petition the government as the citizens were more or less forced into integrating without a say. The court decided on June 10th, 1890, and sided 5-4 in favor of Gibbs, claiming that it was within the government's right to enforce such an act. Although the court did also sort of sided with Jennings, pushing that the citizens moved out of their communities must give their consent and approval of moving out. Justice Robert Roosevelt wrote the majority opinion: "It is within Congress' right to enforce such laws that they apply, although it is also important to receive the consent and approval of those being affect by the laws they apply, as without it is simple tyranny.". The Supreme Court just marked pro-reconciliation acts as constitutional.

With Custer getting the greenlight on reconciliation, he began to deal with those dissenting on his new laws. Some violence and unrest arose from anti-reconciliation protestors causing riots and clashes with the police, in one incident, an anti-reconciliation mob beat one police officer to death and threw in body in the streets. The incident shocked the nation and many demanded justice, this gave Custer the backing to enact another plan he had. In the span of June-August, thousands of anti-reconciliationist rioters were arrested and sent to 're-education facilities' to be 're-educated' about their beliefs, those re-educated would be release after a month and if they caused more dissent they would be thrown back into the facilities to be 're-educated' once again. No one exactly knows what happens in the facilities but rumors going from torture to brainwashing are common, but those released from the facilities never talk about their experience there. Although, anti-reconciliation violence has been significantly reduced ever since the program was created.
Custer's Politics for Dummies
The Presidential Cabinet has always been more or less been aligned with the president's beliefs, although in this case, with the president's beliefs all over the place, the cabinet would be quiet diverse. Some would have quite populistic beliefs like Treasury Secretary Stevenson and Sustenance Secretary Pennoyer, some would be traditionally conservative like Navy Secretary Sewall, War Secretary Stockton, and Secretary of Public Safety Tyler, and some would be considered more liberal like Secretaries Cockrell and Jones, and Attorney General Grant. This caused some division in the cabinet, with many members having different opinions on issues, like the admission of more states in the plain, with the more populistic members being for it and the conservative ones being against it. Vice President Alfred A. Taylor, who was often the most moderate within the cabinet, often had headaches due to the amount of bickering in the cabinet, privately saying, "I would rather have been the presidential cook than a member of this cabinet.". Taylor was known for serving delicious Tennessee Cornbread during cabinet meetings and public events, which were from his own recipe.
On the Congressional front, politics there too was starkly changing. The Radical People's and Christian Salvation Parties had faced a significant decline over the last election and were facing even complete dissolution. The bells did toll for the Salvationists, as on June 1, 1889, waiting for a train going from his hometown of Freeport, Illinois to Chicago, Senator Charles J. Guiteau was shot by an assailant who was connected to the Salvationists. The bullet did not puncture his heart though and he was immediately treated by doctors. The doctors, however, operated on him with unsterilized fingers and tools trying to find the bullet, and Guiteau contracted an infection which slowly weakened his health. Guiteau would pass away on June 30th, which ended a major figurehead for the Salvationists. With their main leader gone, the Salvationists and their party were now certainly going to fall, so once again they turned to the Populists to help, they proposed a merge of their parties, unlike the Visionary Alliance back in 1884, this move would be permanent. A joint Radical People's-Christian Salvation convention was called in D.C., in which they decided to form the Reformed People's Party which would incorporate both Populist and Salvationist agendas. All Salvationists and Populists would run on this party's banner starting on the 1890 midterms, causing a wave of new support of their joint movements to grow. Representatives like Jerry Simpson (RP-KA), Charles Tupper (CS-NS), and Marion Butler (RP-NC), and Senator John P. St. John (CS-KA), although notably the party leader Senator James B. Weaver (RP-IA) did not outright support the merger.

Troubles also arose within the ruling party itself. With Custer's moves in office being controversial not only nation-wide but also within his own party. Many Commons were repulsed by Custer's appeal to nationalists and populists, like his push for isolationism, labor reform, free trade, and anti-gold standard policies, which saw as the reason why the current economy was entering a small recession. The Custer administration was also known as notoriously corrupt, though Custer himself was more blind to the issue than actually involved in it, it was well-known that politicians like Secretary Tyler were making backdoor deals with businessmen like J.P. Morgan and Andrew Carnegie, even personally aiding in putting down worker strikes. Representative William Kissam Vanderbilt (P-NY) even once said, "The difference between a crafty serpent and a pro-big business politician? They have heels, I suppose.". These anti-reform and anti-Custerite politicians within the Commonwealth Party were called 'Reactionaries'. The reactionaries would included members like Senators Arthur Pue Gorman and John M. Palmer (C-IL) and Representatives like John Carlisle (C-KY). The reactionaries would form a major bloc within the party, often favoring militarism and traditional values in Congress, as seen from there opposition of the pro-reconciliation bills and their support for things like the gold standard and imperialism. But also from the other side of the spectrum are the people who see Custer as not reforming enough. Although they weren't as loud as the reactionaries and still mainly accept the situation, many still want more reform coming from the high office. The groups members included the likes of Representatives Samuel M. Jones (F-OH) and Charles N. Felton (C-CA), advocating mostly for internationalism, taxes, anti-corruption measures, and tariff reduction. Though more extreme politicians like Jones would call for monopoly busting, strong regulation, and direct elections.
Senator Arthur Pue Gorman and Representative Charles N. Felton would represent two very different sides of the same party
The Freedom Party had faced its largest split since the Federalist-Freedomite split during Henry Clay’s term. After the elections of 1888, the former Anti-Barnumites had taken control of most major positions in the main Freedom Party after the Conservative Freedom Party remerged with them. Staunch Anti-Barnumites like the pragmatic Representative Thomas Brackett Reed and stanch conservative Senator William Pierce Frye (F-MA) would all head their party in Congress. The remaining former Barnumites such as Representative William McKinley sought to amend the wounds between their counterparts and began the works to begin reconciling between the factions. Though many Freedomites were unsure about reconciling with the other faction, members like McKinley, Reed, and Representative Henry Clay Evans (F-TN) were influential in eventually mending their relations by the 1890 midterms, showing a mostly fully united party. This also was partly helped by the fact that former President Phineas Taylor Barnum would call for his old party’s unification, which had some mixed reactions in the party.

(read here about the Military Crisis of 1890 here)
The Military's Resolve
The government would once again refused the military extremists' demands of increased power. As such, the 700 or so extremists would attempt to storm the White House, with others were sent to seize government buildings and offices against the capitol. The D.C. police was immediately called to hold back the group and a shootout immediately ensued outside the White House. 2 hours passed as the shootout continued and both rebels and police were shot dead, the White House received significant damage due to artillery brought by the rebels, with some rebels even entering the now evacuated building. As the 3rd hour mark hit, military loyalist finally arrived at the scene, led by Harrison Gray Otis and Arthur MacArthur, the 3,000 loyalists sent engaged the rebels who were now resorting to guerilla warfare. 3 more hours would pass as the loyalists would trek to find the rebels scattered around Capitol Hill, it finally cease as the loyalists would find and capture both Jacob H. Smith and J. Franklin Bell hiding in an abandoned building, the remaining rebels would surrender in the 7th hour. Over 500 people would die in the so-called "Battle of Capitol Hill".

The affair caused a uproar across the nation, with some siding the government claiming the military was being spoiled, while some supported the rebel's calls claiming the remaining restrictions were still ruining their careers. It also divided the military more, with some siding with the loyalists and some adhering to the rebel's calls. Fears began to rise of a second Civil War due to such divisions, as some Reactionary politicians began to support the militarist cause. Immediate calls within the government were pushing for appeasement to the militarists to avoid another rebellion. Thus negotiators began to work on something to ease the stress of the military resulting in quite the controversial move.
The 16th Amendment to the United States Constitution would add 9 seats to the House of Representatives that would be designated for the military. Called the 'Military Representatives', 9 servicemen would be chosen from either branch of the military to serve as Representatives for the military's interests. The Representatives would be appointed by the president and approved by the Senate and members could be removed by the president during House elections. The amendment was ratified with astonishing speed, being ratified only two months after it was proposed on February 23, 1891 right before the 52nd Congress met on March 4th. Custer also personally backed the amendment, with others like Representative Thomas B. Reed and William Kissam Vanderbilt supporting it. The 9 Military Representatives were sworn in along with the other 349 normally elected Representatives. Despite the amendment being quickly ratified, it still faced major opposition from anti-militarists and especially the remaining Populists and Salvationists. Representative Henry Clay Evans about the amendment, "If this amendment were to pass, we would be nothing but lapdogs to the armed forces, always in fear of a military rebellion.". Senator Daniel W. Voorhees (P-IN) stated, "Giving any more powers to the military would strip our fairly elected government of independence and reason, as fear would now dominate our politics.". Speaker Alexander S. Clay (C-GA) would be ousted as Speaker by John Wanamaker after the midterms in an anti-Commonwealth vote, Clay would later state, "Was supporting the amendment to the Constitution the right action? I do not know that answer. Yet I know one thing. It was the only action there was."

After the meltdowns of the past two years, Custer would focus in his domestic and foreign policy. Custer would continue his pro-reconciliation policies, achieving slow success across the south, with some forcefully integrated communities prospering and with some having being burnt to the ground. Both pro-labor and pro-business policies would be implemented, such as an 8-hour work day and a shorter work week, other than this, businesses would be usually deregulated and were given reigns in handling any of their practices, with businessmen such as J.P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, and John D. Rockefeller emerging as powerful figures nationally, with their monopolies being wide reaching.

Custer's more reformist policies would deter some of his allies against him, as the likes of Public Safety Secretary Lyon G. Tyler, who disliked Custer's rowdiness in politics in general. Tyler basically had enough went Custer vetoed many legislations that were drafted by the Commons themselves. Tyler resigned as Secretary on May 1891, being replaced by the more moderate John R. McLean. Despite being bashed for his reforms, Custer would also be criticized for his more conservative policies too. A believer in laissez-faire economics and free trade, Custer would refuse to intervene in the economy even when it entered a recession during 1890-91. Custer would often get criticized for allowing big business to skyrocket out of control with their monopolies and trusts, though he would claim his concern was only of the workers' well being. Governor Nathan Goff Jr. (P-VA) would criticize Custer's domestic policies by stating, "Protectionism, direct elections, and internationalism are core things we need in this day and age, not only in Virginia but nationally, yet the president has rejected all of them.". Custer's domestic policies would see opposition from the new reformed populists, which called the Commonwealth Party the party of 'Business, Booze, and Boors'.
Custer, despite being a self-proclaimed 'isolationist', often had interest in foreign affairs yet couldn't act on them as fearing it would deter his supporters. When war broke out in South America in December 31, 1891, when Argentina, who is run by the dictator Nicholas Levalle who recently staged a coup against the government, and Bolivia invaded Chile and Paraguay (more on in the foreign events section), Custer privately sought intervention in favor of Chile and Paraguay to preserve their democracies. Yet Congress and the general public were staunchly against any intervention in South America as they saw as another foreign war. Anti-intervention sentiment grew even further when the Empire of Brazil intervened in favor of Chile and Paraguay on April 1, 1892, their force now being called the 'Continental Alliance', causing the scale of the war to increase and the death toll to grow. Though the public opinion was firmly sympathetic to the Continental Alliance, some in government sought to aid the 'Golden Alliance' of Argentina and Bolivia, as they saw helping them as a way to control their economy and politics, though yet again the majority rejected intervention. Custer did consult his cabinet on what to do on the matter, which Secretaries Sewall and Jones were in favor of intervention, though other like Secretary Cockrell and Attorney General Grant were against it which ultimately led Custer to not intervene for the time being. The US did sell highly demanded imports to both sides of the conflict, which yielded major profit.
- Major Foreign Events -
The War Down Even More South
High inflation, corruption, and bad worker rights in Argentina caused major unrest against the government. The Revolution of Park broke out against the government then run by the conservative National Autonomist Party on July 26, 1890. The rebels captured an arms and ammunition facility in the city and began to arm themselves as government began to apprehend them. The government forces were caught off guard by the now armed rebels and were forced to retreat, the rebels then turned to the Casa Rosada and the president, the revolutionaries successfully broke through the guards and stormed the building, forcing President Manuel Celman to resign. A revolutionary junta was put in place of the government as a new larger government loyalist force was organized to recapture the capitol, which led was by General Nicholas Levalle. The loyalist force successfully defeated revolutionary resistance in the capitol and entered the Casa Rosada, the revolutionary junta was defeat although President Celman had been executed and Vice President Pellegrini had fled the city. Levalle, seeing an opportunity, declared himself emergency president, even rejecting Pellegrini when he returned to the city. Over the past months, Lavalle would style himself with dictatorial powers over the Argentine government, which only fueled his ego.
General Nicholas Levalle of Argentina
Lavalle was a man who opposed the resolve of the border dispute between Chile in Patagonia which restricted Argentina outside the Pacific Ocean. In tandem, Bolivia's Gregorio Pacheco, who succeeded his very pro-Chile predecessor, had designs on Chile after Bolivia had lost the War of the Pacific, as well as Paraguay. Lavalle had secret meetings with Pacheco regarding their plan on Chile, later including Paraguay to the discussion, many meetings later and they decided on a plan to demand land from both nations. Their militaries were built up in the coming months to prepare for the incoming conflict. On December 26, 1891, Bolivia sent an ultimatum to Chile demanding their coastal provinces lost in the War of the Pacific to be returned, Argentina would back them the next day. On the 27th, Bolivia demanded full recognition of the control of the Chaco region from Paraguay, which Argentina backed the same day. Given until the 31st to respond, the Chilean and Paraguayan governments refused to respond to the ultimatums, so on the 31st, Bolivia declared war on Chile and Bolivia, Argentina would declare war on January 2nd.
The campaigns at first favored the 'Golden Alliance' of Argentina and Bolivia, which saw advanced in the north of Chile and southern Paraguay. By February, the Golden Alliance would be nearing the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion, which worried their neighbor to the east, the Empire of Brazil. Empress Isabel I was facing a waning popularity, especially after her father abolished slavery, and the public were firmly against the Golden Alliance. Fearing Argentina's and Bolivia's victory would shatter trust in her even more, she decided to intervene. An ultimatum was sent to Argentina, dictating to end the war or face a blockade, the Argentinians ignored the order. Brazilian ships would begin a naval blockade against Argentina, but oddly some ships were ordered to go dangerously close to the Argentina coast on February 25th. As the ships grew near, the Argentine coast guard were unable to recognize the vessels and assumed they were Chilean and open fired. Despite Argentina apologizing for the incident, the affair caused enough outrage in Brazil to secure that a war was a certain. Brazil declared war on both Argentina and Bolivia on April 1st, forming the 'Continental Alliance' with Chile and Paraguay. The war would rage on from April-August as many foreign nations watched, with both sides gaining the upper hand many times and thousands dead or wounded. By August, both sides would be exhausted by war and bloodshed and needed something to tip the scales.

2023.06.03 01:53 UnPresoMas Introducción

Para comenzar debo decir que soy primario ... ¿Qué es ser primario? Significa que es la primera vez que caigo en cana. Nunca antes había pisado una comisaría, ni para hacer una denuncia, jamás tuve problemas con la ley, exepto por una aprehensión por tenencia de marihuana, que ni siquiera había quedado en mis registros. Nunca me imaginé verme en una situación así, toda esta situación estaba fuera de mi mundo. Cuando me enteré que tenía una acusación y se me iniciaba una causa penal, mi mundo se fue abajo y entre en un estado de depresión severo del que todavía no salgo, aunque con el tiempo uno se va acostumbrando y la rutina lo hace tolerable, como una persona que sufre dolor crónico, la vida continúa pero en ciertos momentos el dolor es lo único presente. Sin embargo, mi familia me apoyo desde el comienzo, me consiguieron ayuda psicológica y psiquiátrica. Después por contacto de una prima contratamos un abogado, que aunque a veces desconfío de el, se lo ve muy competente y preparado. Y bueno solo me queda en confiar en que todo va a salir bien al final. ... Pero bueno ya me fui por las ramas, así que voy a comenzar a relatar cómo fue que encane. Todo comenzó un jueves primero de febrero, como ya dije, yo ya estaba el tanto de la causa y con mi abogado nos habíamos puesto a derecho (que significa ponerse a disposición de la ley) y además mi abogado hizo un pedido de excarcelación que había sido aprobado por la fiscalía, así que estaba con relativa tranquilidad. Volviendo a ese jueves, eran las 20hs, recién había terminado de trabajar, estaba haciendo una torta para el cumpleaños de un amigo, tenía planeado ponerla en el horno y que se cocinara mientras me daba una ducha. Cuando alguien llama a la puerta, me pareció extraño porque no esperaba a nadie, miro por la ventana y veo dos autos y cinco policías de civil, supe que eran policías porque todos usaban la misma ropa negra y la cara de ortiva se les nota a kilómetros. Se me helo la sangre, no porque supiera que me iban a arrestar, sino porque tenía un frasco de flores sobre la mesa, recién acababa de fumarme uno. Sin guardar las cosas por el apuro, salgo y les pregunto que estaban buscando, me respondieron somos de la DDI ¿usted es (X)? a lo que yo respondo que si. - Bueno tenemos una orden de allanamiento. - Les contesto, bueno pueden mostrarme la orden de allanamiento. - Uno de ellos replicó, primero dejamos pasar y después te la mostramos. - A lo que yo respondí, pero como quieren que les deje entrar si no me muestran nada. - El mismo ortiva, ya cambiando su tono de voz dijo, no hay problema si no nos abrís tiramos abajo la reja. - Yo en un tono irónico le respondo a su amenaza, bueno si debe ser así entonces mejor voy a buscar las llaves y los dejo pasar. Entro apurado y lo primero que hago es guardar el frasco de maria y luego busco las llaves y los dejo entrar. Pasaron los cinco canas y un testigo, que pobre estaba más asustado que yo, al entrar se acomodar como panchos en su casa (hasta uno de ellos me pedio la clave del wifi). Una vez acomodados uno de ellos trae una notebook y una impresora, mientras otro me leía la carátula de la causa seguido de la orden de detenciones, al finalizar las lecturas me dice a partir de este momento usted queda detenido. Lo del allanamiento era una excusa, una mentira para que los dejara entrar, eso de ser honestos no va con ellos. Yo les explico que tenía una excarcelación y que eso no era posible, me ignoraron, pedí llamar a mi abogado pero no me lo permitieron. (Acto ilegal por parte de ellos). Me dijieron que prepare un bolso con una muda de ropa y elementos de higiene. Al terminar de preparar mi mochila, le pregunté a uno por cuánto tiempo me iban a retener, a lo que respondió, te vamos a llevar está noche para que mañana vayas a declarar y después te largamos. Fué otra mentira de por parte de ellos. Después de eso me llevaron a una salita para corroborar que no fui golpeado durante el procedimiento, lo que me parece una estupidez porque tranquilamente me pueden golpear en la comisaría (hecho que he presenciado pero me explayare más en otro capítulo). A eso de las 22hs llegamos a la seccional, hicieron los trámites pertinentes que incluyen tomar los datos personales, huellas digitales y las típicas fotos de salen en los noticiarios, ya saben esas fotos con un banner atrás y un policía al lado pero de espalda, fotos de frente, de costado, de espaldas, sin remera, del rostro y de los tatuajes. Una vez hecho esto me llevaron al buzón (el buzón es una celdita separada de los otros preso). Desde la reja los pibes me hicieron todo tipo de preguntas, mi nombre, cuál era mi causa, de dónde era. Yo respondí todas las preguntas sin vacilar, luego de eso me pasaron una botella con agua, jabón y un trapo para que me lave y una botella vacía para mear. Después de eso me puse a dormir o mejor dicho, intentar dormir. A eso de las 7AM me llevaron a declarar y ahí me encontré con mi abogado, me habían dejado llamarlo desde la seccional la noche anterior, leímos juntos la causa y nos pusimos de acuerdo con declarar. Fuimos con el fiscal, declare ante él lo poco que tenía que decir, el fiscal me hizo preguntas, las que yo respondí sin problemas, luego mi abogado me hizo más preguntas como para completar la declaración. Después de todo esto, me entero que tenía que seguir preso mientras mi abogado hacia los pedidos de excarcelación. El me garantizo que el primer pedido me los iban a negar (el primero siempre lo niegan), y que cada pedido de excarcelación tarda cinco días hábiles en recibir una respuesta, osea que en realidad tarda una semana y solo se puede hacer tres veces el pedido de excarcelación. Al volver a la seccional me pusieron con la población, éramos casi veinte personas en una única celda más pequeña que un monoambiente promedio y con baño diminuto sin ducha. Apenas al llegar me recibieron los pibes, me explicaron cómo era la política del lugar, aclarandome que este tranquilo, el que se enoja pierde, me dijieron que en ese lugar no se pelea, no se toca lo ajeno, todo se pide con permiso y respeto; y que por ser el nuevo no iba a ser el gato de ellos, todo se hace sin obligación sino por voluntarismo, eso me dejo más tranquilo, aunque por mi estatura y tamaño, y cara de culo, no cualquiera se anima a hacerme frente. (Aunque la realidad es que soy un boludon, nunca pelee con nadie ni nada parecido). En total estuve dos semanas ahi, los primeros días fueron una tortura, al ser dieciocho personas nos teníamos que organizar para dormir, hacíamos por así decirlo un piso de colchones y nos acostabamos en filita con los brazos y los pies cruzados (tipo como un momia envuelta). Durante el día era estar sentado en el piso o en los colchones enrollados, esto me causaba mucho dolor en la espalda, en el cuello, en las piernas y en las rodillas, y lo único que se podía hacer era pararse un rato, porque ni espacio para caminar había siquiera. Después de la primer semana, los cobanis me dejaron pasar todo el día con la población y a la noche me llevaban al buzón con otras tres personas para dormir, era mucho mejor, un colchón para cada uno y espacio suficiente para dormir como uno quiera, haciendo la estadía más cómoda. Cuando me estaba empezando a asimilar esa vida tras las rejas, un viernes once de febrero a eso de las 20hs, me llamaron a la reja y me dieron tres notificación para firmar, leí la dos primeras donde decía en letras grandes "excarcelación denegada" ya resignado firmo los tres papeles y me vuelvo a sentar en mi lugar, empiezo a leer más detenidamente las copias. El primero denegado, el segundo denegado y el tercero "excarcelación otorgada - bajo fianza de $90.000" confundido le doy los papeles a un compañero que había pasado veinte años en cana y durante ese tiempo había estudiado derecho, el los leyó y me explico que los primeros dos papeles eran el primer y segundo pedido de excarcelación, y el que decía excarcelación otorgada era el tercer y último pedido posible. Al enterarme de esto, entre en un estadobde alegría que pocas veces había vivido antes, sin embargo, mis compañeros mostraban un entusiasmo aún mayor que el que yo demostraba, estaban como si Argentina hubiese ganado el mundial, me abrazaban y felicitaban. Era la primera vez que veían a alguien irse en libertad de ese lugar. Con una sonrisa en el rostro, volví a llamar a la encargada del fondo, ella se acercó a la reja y yo le pregunte si esto era real, a lo que me responde que si, el lunes apenas figure el pago de la fianza me podía ir. Yo estaba seguro que mi familia disponía de esa plata y que seguro pagarían sin dudar. Pero luego, me enteré que el monto por mi fianza era más alto, $200.000, debido a que la plata de la fianza va a las manos del juez y como en mi causa estaban trabajando dos jueces, en realidad eran 90.000 para cada uno. Mi familia por suerte cuenta con ahorros y pudieron pagar la fianza. Pero que quieren que les diga, para mí el sistema de libertad bajo fianza me suena como un "soborno institucionalizado", prefería que el dinero que me piden vaya a una ONG, al estado o a cualquier lado, todo menos al los bolsillos de una persona cuyo trabajo es hundirme en una causa sin ver la verdad total de los hechos. Encima ellos mismos pone el precio de su "soborno". Además la justicia se supone que debe ser equitativa, como puede ser que una persona pueda comprar su libertad, mientras menos beneficiados los dejan pudrirse en la cárcel. En el cuento, "el pánico" 1954. De Kobo Abe, deja bien en claro como el sistema judicial en realidad es un sistema capitalista dónde el objetivo es movilizar la industria judicial, recaudando dinero para ellos, en vez de buscar la verdad y la justicia de los hechos (1). pero como sea ya estoy divagando de nuevo. Volviendo a mi causa, con mi libertad casi asegurada, tuve que esperar tres largos días hasta que pueda "abrir el candado" como se dice. El lunes prepare mis cosas, solo me lleve mi ropa y un libro, les deje a mis compañeros mis sábanas, elementos de higiene, otro libro que tenía, algo de comida que me había sobrado y ropa que tenía de mas. Los lunes a las 10AM las familias llevaban los bagallos (comida y otros víveres para aguantar toda la semana), como yo ya sabía que me iba, mi familia trajo muchas pizzas para compartir con mis compañeros. Después de las visitas nos pusimos a comer y a eso de las 13hs me avisaron que ya me podía ir. Mi familia ya había sido notificada de mi liberación y me estaban esperando afuera, firmé los papeles de excarcelación que me "garantizaba" la libertad mientras cumpliera tres condiciones: - Avisar 72hs antes si es que iba a salir de la provincia. - Dar aviso y nueva dirección en el caso de que vaya a mudar. - Y por último, no contactarme con la parte acusante. Volví a mi casa, aunque solo fueron dos semanas, había sido suficiente para desacostumbrarme a algunas cosas. Como el sol, este me enceguecia, tarde varios días en acostumbrarme, así como en acostumbrarme a volver a tener una rutina con horarios fijos, horarios de comidas y un horario de sueño regular, en un calabozo dormís cuando hay sueño y comes cuando hay hambre. En otras palabras, volver a acomodar el ciclo circadiano, porque cuando estás en una taquería el día y noche es lo mismo y la hora solo sirve para saber cuándo termina un día y empieza el otro. ... Mi familia me había recibido con comida, luego hablamos un poco de todo lo sucedido. Después me puse a trabajar y acomodar los proyectos que había dejado pendientes, mi familia me sugería que descansará pero yo ya estaba cansado de descansar, solo quería retomar mi vida normal. Estuve así un mes y medio, más o menos, cuando volvió ir la policía a mi casa con otro pedido de detención, totalmente injustificado, yo no había incumplido ninguna de sus condiciones, no sabía porque me querían detener de nuevo y ellos tampoco lo sabían, solo sabían que me tenían que llevar, y ellos solo obedecen a su superior. Accedí a ir, pensando se había cometido un error y que se solucionaría en cuestión de unas horas o días. Me llevaron a la comisaría de mi ciudad y de ahí al buzón, una caja enrejada dónde apenas entraba parado y no entraba acostado, ese lugar era una mierda, olía a meo y mierda, a linyera; las paredes estaban húmedas podridas y verdes del moho, el piso negro con una gruesa capa de mugre, tan gruesa que no se distinguían las baldosas, y cucarachas y mosquitos por montón. Después se hizo la noche y el lugar no tenía luz. Llame al encargado del fondo para que me dejara ir al baño y me diera un poco de agua, me dijo que iba a ver qué podía hacer y media hora después vino con una botella vacía para que meara y nada de agua. Después de eso, me trajeron unos papeles explicando las razones por las que fui arrestado, resulta, que el juez que llevaba mi causa se tomó una licencia laboral y la jueza interina elevo mi causa a juicio oral y determino que yo debía estar aprehendiendo hasta el juicio, cagandose en la palabra de su antecesor y en la fianza que había pagado y me garantizaba mi libertad hasta el juicio. También me dijeron que me iban a llevar a otra seccional, dónde estoy hasta el día de hoy, por el momento ya estoy acá hace un mes y medio, y se que tengo que estar dos meses más hasta que me den la resolución de la apelación de libertad que solicito mi abogado (2). O sino aproximadamente un año hasta que sea llevado a cabo el juicio. ¿Dónde quedó la presunción de inocencia? La famosa frase "toda persona es inocente hasta que se demuestre lo contrario". Yo estoy preso antes de un juicio, antes de que se demuestre lo contrario. Según lo veo la justicia ya me considera culpable, eso es para mí uno de los más grandes fallos de la justicia de nuestros tiempos.
(1) lean el cuento "el pánico" y van a entender mejor de lo que hablo. (2) al final fue mucho mucho más tiempo que solo dos meses.

2023.06.02 23:00 danna_202 No lo extraño a él, extraño la conexión y no solo física

Bno realmente es una historia que comienza en 2021 pero resumiendo todo, siempre fuimos casi algo que se dejaban y volvían (pero casi siempre yo lo buscaba) y raramente él a mí, la cosa es que yo me aleje al final así como él lo hizo conmigo sin dar explicaciones, la cosa es que yo sufrí mucho en esa casi relación ya que le tenía que decir como tratarme o. Decirle cómo me hacía sentir, la cosa es que él año pasado en Nov lo volvimos a intentar porque él me busco y pidió perdón pero la vdd nunca se sintió como una disculpa sincera y honesta, bno en fin yo le pedí a él vernos un sábado para hablar en persona de todo él me dijo que iba a ver si podía, pero lo noté extraño, bno en fin un día antes (el viernes) me escribió en la noche y me dijo que no nos íbamos a poder ver por su entreno (gym) eso fue la gota que derramó el vaso y más porque horas antes yo hablé con uno de sus mejores amigos y él me dijo que él no sabía que él y yo habíamos vuelto, pero que me quisiera por una vez en la vida y me alejara, le dije porque y me dijo que estaba hablando con 2 chicas aparte de mi, eso me devastó y así fue como le dejé en visto y él no volvió a escribir y yo no volví a insistir, este año el día de mi cumpleaños tenia la esperanza de algún mensaje pero no sucedió, días después él me escribio para pedirme explicaciones de porqué le dejé de hablar y yo le .di explicaciones que no eran ya que realmente no quise decirle las verdaderas y pss bno nos apartamos, yo borre absolutamente TODO, y comencé a salir más, arreglarme más para sentirme bien, sin necesidad de meterme con nadie, y r estado sola desde entonces, la cosa es que la semana pasada me lo encontré en una reunión de amigos pero no nos dirigimos la palabra solo nos miramos y se sintió todo tan extraño, ya no lo reconocía lo y dije "realmente estoy tan mal por este imbécil que no sabe todo lo que hice para que me pagará así?" Ls cosa es que hoy, justamente ahora una cuenta falsa me envió una captura de una historia de Instagram de él dónde decía "Quieres ser mi novia? En una plato con un postre" Con un ramo de flores junto con un collar, Mkk llore porque yo siempre quise eso de él, pero yo siempre le tuve que decir como tratarme y él siempre me decía que iba a cambiar etc, lo peor es que vive a 4 min de mi casa y a veces lo veo y eso me hace sentir mal, por eso a fin de año me iré .de esta ciudad, quiero estar bien para la próxima persona que llegue a mi vida, pero para eso tengo que sanar y superar, ustedes que me aconsejan o piensan de eso?

2023.06.01 23:49 AnotherCrazyChick Appreciation post: Tex Mex and Tex Food

Let’s get this sub going. I grew up in Texas and moved away over a decade ago. I still visit and what I miss most is the food. I moved to Oregon and lived there for 10 years. I asked the locals where I could find good Tex Mex. I was referred to a restaurant that only had mango salsa and mango or pineapple in the majority of dishes. You know, because the west coast is the closest to Hawaii, so they integrated that into their cuisine. It’s not Tex Mex in any form or fashion. There was no queso dip outside of Chipotle once they started advertising it and it was not sufficient and it’s not the same. The Mexican restaurants that offered queso were more Mexican focused and the “queso” was mostly cheese and not dip. A solid piece of melted cheese that was fried. Growing up in DFW, Taco Casa was the best. In my hometown, the high school was next door to a Taco Casa, so I ate there for lunch regularly. Back when we had off campus eating. And also Whataburger. Did you know Whataburger has chicken fajita wraps? They aren’t always on the menu, but they still have them and I love them. Also Braum’s ice cream. There was no drive thru ice cream in Oregon. There are multiples here in NY, but it’s not Braum’s. All places have limited options of flavors and it’s mostly soft serve yogurt. While I do recommend Texan’s try Oregon Tillamook cheese and ice cream, I still miss Braum’s.
Thank you for reading my rant and reminiscence.

2023.06.01 17:41 gemino1990 Just got back home- here’s my review

My family of four stayed at the Conrad which is really close to Akumal for 6 days and then one night in Cancun before we left.
We rented a car from easyway which was no problem at all except I am still waiting to get the deposit back. I was really paranoid about being pulled over after reading some posts on here but we never had an issue. Renting a car was nice, but driving into Tulum was kind of a nightmare with the car. Parking was extremely hard to find and the cops at the beginning of town really made me nervous. The other drivers in Mexico are really aggressive so you have to pay close attention to avoid accidents.
The resort we stayed at was beautiful and the seaweed really wasn’t an issue until a storm came in on one of our last nights and then we could really see what everyone was talking about. There was tons of seaweed floating and the water looked brown instead of the pretty blue that we saw all the days before. We did have an issue at checkin where our room wasn’t ready at 6pm which was extremely frustrating considering we had been traveling since 3am that morning and we were wearing sweatpants and tennis shoes. We also brought a 12 pack of beer to the resort and the staff misplaced it. I had to ask about it and then they figured out where it was and brought it to our room. Our problems were resolved with a $100 credit to our bill. The restaurants and alcohol on our resort were extremely expensive. Luckily the 2 adults got free breakfast every day and we mostly went off the resort to stock up on booze and snacks and sometimes ate a late lunch in town.
We visited Akumal and I loved it much more than Tulum. It was much less stressful to park and we took the snorkel tour with the turtles and the beach was nice there.
We also went to casa tortugas cenotes which was a really great experience just make sure you bring a waterproof cellphone case and cash rather than card.
On our way back to Cancun we stopped at playa del Carmen which was really beautiful and had tons of shopping. Lots of people thought we were Canadian and we constantly trying to pull us into their shops placing necklaces on my daughters and pressuring us to buy shit we didn’t want. We ended up avoiding 5th avenue on the walk back to our car so we wouldn’t get hassled.
Cancun was actually really awesome because everything was so convenient. ATMs were easy to find and the hotel we stayed at was walking distance from all the cool stuff.
The cons:
Not following advice on how to convert money was super annoying. We found ourselves searching for a working atm multiple times and we were paranoid about using the random ones in Tulum. Our hotel had two machines but the pesos machine was out of order and the usd machine charged us nearly $30 to take out $200. I got ripped off $20 at a money exchange in playa del Carmen where the lady said I gave her $20 less than I did and then when I called her out she said “no ingles” I realized I shouldn’t have tried to convert as much money as I did and that would have helped in that scenario.
Also got ripped off at the gas station. I gave the guy a $20 and turned around and he had $1 in his hand instead. At the time I didn’t realize what had happened so I didn’t know until we got back to the hotel and I read the post on here and realized that’s a common scam.
In Cancun we were set on eating tacos and we found this little taco shop that we had to go get money out for. We came back and sat down and started to order and the lady told us all the prices on the menu were actually 20 pesos more than what was listed. It was a slap in the face but we paid it anyway.
And the last downside is that because we did eat off the resort a few times, my husband and I are suffering from diarrhea still.
Overall we had a great time but it does feel shitty being taken advantage of because I’m a white tourist. I want to support these Mexican vendors but found myself sticking to shops where prices are listed to avoid being haggled and ripped off. Oh an we never had any moment where we didn’t feel safe.

2023.06.01 07:33 nto_vences13 ¿Quien dijo que en otoño no se flores?

Quién dice que en otoño no florece. En otoño también se florece Cómo florece caléndula, y la calentura de los jóvenes en las noches dónde comienza el frío y uno busca algún cuerpo para evitar la hipotermia de la soledad. Que tiempos aquellos Cuando rosa, esa niña blanca se perdía conmigo entré las sombras y el roce de nuestros cuerpos empapaba las manos de los dos. Cómo florece hortensia, esa señora que a pesar de su edad irradia de belleza cada mañana con sus lindos tonos y aromas que deja a uno florecer en el pensamiento. Y están las dalias flores mexicanas con su asentó marcado en su diversidad de color generan asombros de quien las contempla por su verdad., Ha, pero recuerdo a una en especial, sus labios color rojo tocando la frontera del negro me robaba el aliento y en una ocasión me dejó muerto en la cama. Y el pensamiento una vez más floreció observando a girasol, una joven simple, ha, pero caí en la trampa que era esa simpleza que no era tan simple de notar y me perdí en sus ojos y el sol la vestía de amarillo al colocarse en sus hombros, cosa que a los hombres nos hacía perder la cabeza y a mí me dejaba con más pensamientos que nunca sobre su cuerpo. Y recordé que en una ocasión margarita más tenaz que nunca floreció de atrevimiento al desnudarse frente a mí. Debo decirlo fue algo mágico en verdad, ver caer cada pétalo cada miedo, cada talló y cada prejuicio. Demostrando su valor me dejó pasmado boca abierta y pensar que tenía la estúpida idea de que ver a una mujer desnuda era sin ropa. Me sentí un completo idiota. Ahora que lo creo el problema no es florecer en otoño. He pasado más de 6 horas hundido en el pensamiento que florece de recuerdos al mirar la florería y entre él los nardos y crisantemos se deja ver un par de piernas suaves largas y anchas con un tono canela, claro que hace un contraste perfecto entre los geranios rojos del jardín. El problema es mirarla a los ojos y perderme en su encantó a sabiendas de que se puede perder el alma al mirar el escote cuando se agacha para levantar los claveles. Supongo que esa es la clave., Es aceptar que uno florece con la certeza de que perderá los pétalos y colores en algún momento el frío nos quemará el cuerpo y el sol deshidratara el alma. Pero es otoño mis planes eran otros como pasar a la florería de la esquina comprar sempasúchil para la tumba de mi amigo sentirme tal vez melancólico y miserable, llorar un poco sobre el calendario e irme a casa solo como de costumbre. A, pero es otoño una estación mágica como todas. Debo decirlo El problema no es florecer en otoño donde las hojas caen como caen los sueños. El problema es preguntarle su nombre sin que se sienta acosada por el tiempo que llevó mirándola o se espante por mi aspecto mortuorio. Me preguntó si es prudente O quizás no. Y como hacerlo Sin que se dé cuenta de que me ha hecho florecer en este otoño gris. (nto)
