Welcome back to the fifty-fourth edition of /neoliberal elects the American presidents!
This will be a fairly consistent weekly thing - every week, a new election, until we run out.
I highly encourage you - at least in terms of the vote you cast - to try to think from the perspective of the year the election was held, without knowing the future or how the next administration would go. I'm not going to be trying to enforce that, but feel free to remind fellow commenters of this distinction.
If you're really feeling hardcore, feel free to even speak in the present tense as if the election is truly upcoming!
Whether third and fourth candidates are considered "major" enough to include in the strawpoll will be largely at my discretion and depend on things like whether they were actually intending to run for President, and whether they wound up actually pulling in a meaningful amount of the popular vote and even electoral votes. I may also invoke special rules in how the results will be interpreted in certain elections to better approximate historical reality.
While I will always give some brief background info to spur the discussion, please don't hesitate to bring your own research and knowledge into the mix! There's no way I'll cover everything!
John McCain v Barack Obama, 2008
Profiles
  • John McCain is the 72-year-old Republican candidate and a US Senator from Arizona. His running mate is Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin.
  • Barack Obama is the 47-year-old Democratic candidate and a US Senator from Illinois. His running mate is US Senator from Delaware Joe Biden.
Issues and Background
  • The United States and other countries are in the midst of what many are describing as the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. The crisis was largely triggered by a collapse in home prices, which in turn caused securities tied directly or indirectly to real estate to plummet in value. In September, major investment bank Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy. A day later, the Federal Reserve bailed out and essentially took control of insurance giant AIG. Credit markets were on the brink of meltdown. In early October, Congress passed the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, which created an enormous government program to purchase "toxic assets" from banks and significantly increased the amount of insurance provided by the FDIC. Both McCain and Obama supported this rescue plan. Liquidity appears to have been restored, but the economic situation is still otherwise dire.
    • Senator Obama has described the current crisis as a "final verdict on eight years of failed economic policies promoted by George Bush, supported by Senator McCain, a theory that basically says that we can shred regulations and consumer protections and give more and more to the most, and somehow prosperity will trickle down." Obama has spoken of the importance of oversight over the TARP $700 billion, of the possibility of getting that money back, of making sure none of that money is going to executive pay or executive severance packages, and of following up the package with help for homeowners.
    • Senator McCain has said that what distinguishes him from Senator Obama on how he will lead the country out of the economic crisis is his commitment to get government spending under control. McCain has proposed a one-year spending freeze on "non-defense, non-veterans discretionary spending." McCain has criticized Senator Obama for supporting "pork-barrel spending" in the past.
  • The US occupation of Iraq continues. Last year, the Bush Administration oversaw a troop surge, and the conventional wisdom is that the situation has generally improved as a result. There are some indications that the security situation is improving and that the training of the new Iraqi military is working. That said, pressure on the US to withdraw has increased, as the Iraqi government has sought a withdrawal timetable and the US coalition partners have begun their own withdraw. Security responsibility for several provinces has already been transferred from US forces to Iraqi forces. However, earlier this year, General David Petraeus called for the delaying of troop withdrawals.
    • Both candidates accuse the other of failures of judgement. Senator Obama has criticized McCain sharply for supporting invading Iraq in the first place, while Senator McCain has criticized Obama for not supporting the 2007 surge. On the latter point, in January 2007 Senator Obama's stance was:
      The need to bring this war to an end is here. That is why today I am introducing the Iraq War De-escalation Act of 2007. This plan would not only place a cap on the number of troops in Iraq and stop the escalation: more importantly, it would begin a phased redeployment of United States forced with the goal of removing all United States combat forces from Iraq by March 31, 2008.
    • Early this year, Democrats seized on a statement from Senator McCain in which he indicated that he would be comfortable with an American presence in Iraq for "maybe 100" years. He has stood by the comments, saying he was referring to a presence comparable to what the US has had in South Korea, Germany, and Japan.
    • Under the Obama plan for Iraq, a phased withdrawal of most troops would begin which would likely remove the US troop presence by summer of 2010. A residual force would remain "to conduct targeted counter-terrorism missions against al Qaeda in Iraq and to protect American diplomatic and civilian personnel."
    • Under the McCain plan for Iraq, the US would not leave Iraq "before Al Qaeda in Iraq is defeated and before a competent, trained, and capable Iraqi security force is in place and operating effectively."
  • Sarah Palin has received a significant amount of both positive and negative attention relative to most VP nominees. Supporters praise her history as a reformer, her advocacy for families with special needs children, and her ability to energize parts of the Republican base. However, critics have raised questions about her knowledge of policy and her readiness to be President if it became necessary. Some in the media have expressed frustration at their limited access to Governor Palin. This scrutiny increased following a poorly received interview with Katie Couric which included the following exchanges:
    COURIC: You've cited Alaska's proximity to Russia as part of your foreign policy experience. What did you mean by that?
    PALIN: That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and on our other side, the land boundary that we have with Canada ... We have trade missions back and forth. We -- we do -- it's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where -- where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to -- to our state.
    ...
    COURIC: What other Supreme Court decisions do you disagree with?
    PALIN: Well, let’s see. There’s, of course in the great history of America there have been rulings, that’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American. And there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but …
    COURIC: Can you think of any?
    PALIN: Well, I could think of … any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level. Maybe I would take issue with. But, you know, as mayor, and then as governor and even as a vice president, if I’m so privileged to serve, wouldn’t be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today.
    ...
    COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?
    PALIN: I’ve read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media.
    COURIC: What, specifically?
    PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years.
    COURIC: Can you name a few?
    PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news, too. Alaska isn’t a foreign country, where it’s kind of suggested, “Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?”
  • Health care reform has come up frequently on the campaign trail. Both candidates recognize a need to increase coverage and lower costs.
    • The Obama plan includes requiring health insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions, a tax credit to incentivize small businesses to provide health coverage, requirements on large employers to provide health coverage or otherwise contribute financially to their employee's health care, and "a National Health Insurance Exchange with a range of private insurance options as well as a new public plan based on benefits available to members of Congress."
    • The McCain plan is to offer "a direct refundable tax credit ... of $2,500 for individuals and $5,000 for families to offset the cost of insurance" and promote health savings accounts. McCain also seeks to make it easier to purchase health insurance across state lines.
  • Attention has also been given to the candidate's differing tax plans.
    • The Obama tax plan is to cut taxes for the middle class further than the Bush tax cuts did, while increasing taxes on the wealthiest 2% of Americans back to levels as they were in the 1990s. Senator Obama also seeks to implement a universal 10% mortgage interest tax credit, the elimination of income taxes for seniors making less than $50,000 a year, and an expansion of the EITC.
    • The McCain tax plan is to preserve all of the Bush tax cuts, phase out the Alternative Minimum Tax, cut the corporate tax rate to 25%, and establish a large R&D tax credit. Senator McCain also pledges to keep the Internet free of taxes.
    • In October at a campaign stop, Senator Obama was confronted by Joe Wurzelbacher, who has since become known colloquially as "Joe the Plumber", with concerns that he would be taxed more if Senator Obama were to become President. More recently, Wurzelbacher has made joint appearances with John McCain on the campaign trail. The McCain campaign has in particular seized on Obama's comment to Joe that "I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
  • McCain, currently 72, would be the oldest first-term President if elected. McCain gave reporters an opportunity to review his full medical records, which showed that he is generally in good health and has relatively low risk of heart disease despite slightly elevated cholesterol and past issues with skin cancer.
  • If elected, Senator Obama would be the first African-American President of the United States. Obama was born in Hawaii, the son of a Kenyan economist and an anthropologist from Kansas. While many find the possibility of the first African-American President inspiring, particularly when combined with the optimistic rhetoric of Senator Obama's campaign, his identity has also been related to unique challenges for him during the campaign. Members of his own party during the primary implied that his success in the race was mainly due to his race. Former VP nominee Geraldine Ferraro said:
    If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.
    Senator Biden, now Obama's running mate, said:
    I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man.
    In addition, Senator Obama has faced false rumors that he was born in Kenya and that he is not Christian. Some argue that the spread of these rumors is motivated partially or entirely by racism.
  • Republicans have argued that Senator Obama is connected to problematic persons and organizations.
    • Roughly 40 years ago, now-professor Bill Ayers was a leading member of the militant Weather Underground Organization, which conducted a bombing campaign of targeting government buildings and financial institutions. Ayers first met Barack Obama through a non-profit reform project's board of directors, and later hosted a small informal event where a departing State Senator introduced Obama as her chosen successor. Through each of their active involvements in Chicago events and initiatives, they would serve on a couple of the same boards and panels in the years afterwards. There is virtually no evidence to support some Republican claims that Ayers was some sort of political adviser to Obama, who has referred to Ayers as "somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8."
    • Senator Obama's pastor, Jeremiah Wright, has been the subject of controversy related to several sermon excerpts. The excerpts include claims that the government lied about its advance knowledge of Pearl Harbor, that the government lied about "inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color," and his comment that "America's chickens are coming home to roost," interpreted by some to be referring to the 9/11 attacks given the date of the sermon. President Obama addressed the issue in a broader speech on race in March of this year. Senator Obama stated:
      I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy. For some, nagging questions remain. Did I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy? Of course. Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes. Did I strongly disagree with many of his political views? Absolutely—just as I'm sure many of you have heard remarks from your pastors, priests, or rabbis with which you strongly disagreed.
      ...
      I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother—a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe. These people are a part of me. And they are a part of America, this country that I love.
    • Pro-labor NGO ACORN has been accused by Republicans of orchestrating voter fraud, though further investigation has revealed this claim to be overstated at best. ACORN has hired people in the past to assist in voter registration, and sometimes these workers have come up with phony registrations - however, this issue seems to be motivated by laziness of individual workers rather than an attempt to conduct voter fraud. Obama served as a local counsel for ACORN in the 90s, and was endorsed by the ACORN political action committee during the primary. The Obama campaign also hired an ACORN affiliate for get-out-the-vote efforts during the primary.
  • Representative John Lewis, a civil rights icon, has received blowback for comments he made regarding the tone of the McCain/Palin campaign. Lewis accused the campaign of "sowing the seeds of hatred and division," and brought up the example of George Wallace never throwing a bomb or firing a gun but creating "the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans." McCain called the comments "hurtful" and called on Senator Obama to repudiate the comments. The Obama campaign has said that the comparison made by Rep. Lewis was inappropriate.
  • Senator McCain describes himself as a "free trader" and has criticized Senator Obama for opposing some free trade agreements. The Obama team has pledged to "use trade agreements to spread good labor and environmental standards around the world and stand firm against agreements like the Central American Free Trade Agreement that fail to live up to those important benchmarks." Senator Obama has also pledged to "fix" NAFTA.
Debate Excerpts
First Presidential Debate (full transcript)
(1) Obama on government spending:
John, it's been your president who you said you agreed with 90 percent of the time who presided over this increase in spending. This orgy of spending and enormous deficits you voted for almost all of his budgets. So to stand here and after eight years and say that you're going to lead on controlling spending and, you know, balancing our tax cuts so that they help middle class families when over the last eight years that hasn't happened I think just is, you know, kind of hard to swallow.
(2) McCain on Iraq:
I think the lessons of Iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy that will then cause you to nearly lose a conflict. Our initial military success, we went in to Baghdad and everybody celebrated. And then the war was very badly mishandled. I went to Iraq in 2003 and came back and said, we've got to change this strategy. This strategy requires additional troops, it requires a fundamental change in strategy and I fought for it. And finally, we came up with a great general and a strategy that has succeeded.
(3) Obama on meeting foreign adversaries "without precondition":
I reserve the right, as president of the United States to meet with anybody at a time and place of my choosing if I think it's going to keep America safe ... Now, understand what this means "without preconditions." It doesn't mean that you invite them over for tea one day. What it means is that we don't do what we've been doing, which is to say, "Until you agree to do exactly what we say, we won't have direct contacts with you."
(4) McCain on Iran:
My reading of the threat from Iran is that if Iran acquires nuclear weapons, it is an existential threat to the State of Israel and to other countries in the region because the other countries in the region will feel compelling requirement to acquire nuclear weapons as well.
Now we cannot have a second Holocaust. Let's just make that very clear. What I have proposed for a long time, and I've had conversation with foreign leaders about forming a league of democracies, let's be clear and let's have some straight talk. The Russians are preventing significant action in the United Nations Security Council.
Vice-Presidential Debate (full transcript)
(1) Biden on what his administration would look like if a President Obama were to die in office:
God forbid that would ever happen, it would be a national tragedy of historic proportions if it were to happen.
But if it did, I would carry out Barack Obama's policy, his policies of reinstating the middle class, making sure they get a fair break, making sure they have access to affordable health insurance, making sure they get serious tax breaks, making sure we can help their children get to college, making sure there is an energy policy that leads us in the direction of not only toward independence and clean environment but an energy policy that creates 5 million new jobs, a foreign policy that ends this war in Iraq, a foreign policy that goes after the one mission the American public gave the president after 9/11, to get and capture or kill bin Laden and to eliminate al Qaeda. A policy that would in fact engage our allies in making sure that we knew we were acting on the same page and not dictating.
(2) Palin on what her administration would look like if a President McCain were to die in office:
And heaven forbid, yes, that would ever happen, no matter how this ends up, that that would ever happen with either party.
As for disagreeing with John McCain and how our administration would work, what do you expect? A team of mavericks, of course we're not going to agree on 100 percent of everything. As we discuss ANWR there, at least we can agree to disagree on that one. I will keep pushing him on ANWR. I have so appreciated he has never asked me to check my opinions at the door and he wants a deliberative debate and healthy debate so we can make good policy.
What I would do also, if that were to ever happen, though, is to continue the good work he is so committed to of putting government back on the side of the people and get rid of the greed and corruption on Wall Street and in Washington.
Second Presidential Debate (Town Hall) (full transcript)
(1) McCain on nuclear energy:
But we kept the debate going, and we kept this issue to -- to posing to Americans the danger that climate change opposes. Now, how -- what's -- what's the best way of fixing it? Nuclear power. Senator Obama says that it has to be safe or disposable or something like that. Look, I -- I was on Navy ships that had nuclear power plants. Nuclear power is safe, and it's clean, and it creates hundreds of thousands of jobs.
(2) Obama on McCain's criticism that he's being reckless on foreign policy:
Senator McCain, this is the guy who sang, "Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran," who called for the annihilation of North Korea. That I don't think is an example of "speaking softly." This is the person who, after we had -- we hadn't even finished Afghanistan, where he said, "Next up, Baghdad."
(3) McCain on Russia:
I said before, watch Ukraine. Ukraine, right now, is in the sights of Vladimir Putin, those that want to reassemble the old Soviet Union. We've got to show moral support for Georgia.We've got to show moral support for Ukraine. We've got to advocate for their membership in NATO. We have to make the Russians understand that there are penalties for these this kind of behavior, this kind of naked aggression into Georgia, a tiny country and a tiny democracy.
(4) Obama on spending priorities:
You know, you may have seen your health care premiums go up. We've got to reform health care to help you and your budget. We are going to have to deal with energy because we can't keep on borrowing from the Chinese and sending money to Saudi Arabia. We are mortgaging our children's future. We've got to have a different energy plan. We've got to invest in college affordability. So we're going to have to make some investments, but we've also got to make spending cuts. And what I've proposed, you'll hear Senator McCain say, well, he's proposing a whole bunch of new spending, but actually I'm cutting more than I'm spending so that it will be a net spending cut.
Third Presidential Debate (full transcript)
(1) McCain on Obama's economic plans:
I don't think there's any doubt that Sen. Obama wants to restrict trade and he wants to raise taxes. And the last president of the United States that tried that was Herbert Hoover, and we went from a deep recession into a depression.
(2) Obama on comments by Congressman Lewis:
I mean, look, if we want to talk about Congressman Lewis, who is an American hero, he, unprompted by my campaign, without my campaign's awareness, made a statement that he was troubled with what he was hearing at some of the rallies that your running mate was holding, in which all the Republican reports indicated were shouting, when my name came up, things like "terrorist" and "kill him," and that your running mate didn't mention, didn't stop, didn't say "Hold on a second, that's kind of out of line."
(3) McCain on Obama's connections:
I don't care about an old washed-up terrorist [Bill Ayers]. But as Sen. Clinton said in her debates with you, we need to know the full extent of that relationship.
We need to know the full extent of Sen. Obama's relationship with ACORN, who is now on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy. The same front outfit organization that your campaign gave $832,000 for "lighting and site selection." So all of these things need to be examined, of course.
(4) Obama on who he associates with:
Let me tell you who I associate with. On economic policy, I associate with Warren Buffett and former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. If I'm interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate, Joe Biden or with Dick Lugar, the Republican ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO.
Those are the people, Democrats and Republicans, who have shaped my ideas and who will be surrounding me in the White House. And I think the fact that this has become such an important part of your campaign, Sen. McCain, says more about your campaign than it says about me.

Cast
Reed Richards/Mr Fantastic : Matt Smith (Doctor Who) - As I want the MCU Fantastic Four to have a Doctor Who vibe, I originally wanted David Tennant as Mr Fantastic, But as Tennant is Kilgrave, I decided to cast Matt Smith.
Sue Storm/ Invisible Woman: Lily James (Downton Abbey, Mamma Mia) - As Matt Smith and Lily James are boy friend and girlfriend I think that it would be a good idea to cast a real life couple as Reed Richards and Sue Storm.
Ben Grimm/The Thing: Robert Kazinsky (EastEnders) - Even though Robert Kazinsky played a small role in Captain Marvel, it is possible to get him as Ben Grimm/ The Thing, They castedGemma Chan as Doctor Minn erva from Captain Marvel and Cersi in Eternals. Due to Ben Grimm/ The Thing being Jewish and Robert Kazinsky being Jewish. I think he would very good as the Thing. Robert Kazinsky also played CGI characters before.
Johnny Storm/ Human Torch: Joe Thomas (Inbetweeners) - The main Reason I picked him is because he is Hannah Tointon's boyfriend and I want Hannah Tointon as Crystal in the Inhumans reboot. In the Comics Crystal fell in love with Johnny Storm.

Bentley Wittman/ Wizard: Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords)
Medusalith Amaquelin/ Medusa: Kara Tointon (EastEnders, The Halcyon)- One of my top Celebrity Crushes, The reason I picked her as Medusa is because she has a Younger sister called Hannah Tointon Just like Medusa who’s Younger sister is Crystal. Kara Tointon and Hannah Tointon both played Mr Selfridge’s Daughters in the Biopic Mr Selfridge. I think it would be perfect sense to cast siblings as siblings.The second reason I casted her as Medusa is because I want Kara to wear a Red Wig.

Nicholas Sweeney/ Henry McCoy/ Beast: Matt Berry (IT Crowd, Toast of London)- This Character will first appear in an end credit scene of Thor Love and Thunder, where he presents a documentary about New Asgard, However, we will not learn is true identity until the first MCU Fantastic Four movie. I think Matt Berry would be brilliant and funny as the MCU Beast, due to his opera like voice and his portrayal of Steven Toast In Toast of London. Matt Berry also has some resemblance to Beast. His Beast form will be achieved through Motion Capture (Similar to professor Hulk).
Allison Blaire/ Dazzler: Rachel Stevens (S Club 7)- Another of my celebrity crushes, I would think she would be a good Dazzler. My version of Dazzler is Jewish, a Cousin of Ben Grimm/ The Thing and dated Tony Stark before he became Iron Man. Dazzler and The Thing share a Grandfather who fought against Oswald Mosleys Blackshirts in the Battle of Cable street She is also very politically active standing up against Anti Antisemitism and other forms of Racism. She also supports peace between Israel and Palestine.

Kwaku Adjobah: Trevor Laird- An Original Character that I have made, He will be very similar to his other character in Toast of London Nick Swivney, But without the Homophobia. He will also play a huge part in the MCU Deadpool Series.
Rabbi Saul: David Schneider- Another Original Character that I made to be Ben Grimms Rabbi
Mayor Edwin Gladstone: David Mitchell (Peep Show)- Another Original Character
Hasina Chowdhury: Nadiya Hussain- She is another original character that I had made for Nadiya Hussain, As the East End of London has a lot of Bangladeshi’s, I think There should be a character of Bangladeshi origins.

Music: Joby Talbot, Neil Hannon/ Divine Comedy Matt Berry and S Club 7- Even though Joby Talbot would do the main score, the Main Fantastic Four theme would be written by Joby Talbot, Neil Hannon and Matt Berry. As you can see as well as an actor, Matt Berry is also a very good musician, Matt Berry will also do a cover of the theme tune of the 1990s Fantastic Four Cartoon theme.Neil Hannon/ Divine Comedy would also make some songe for the movie, However, The Lead Single will be Family By S Club 7.

Cast
Reed Richards/Mr Fantastic : Matt Smith (Doctor Who) - As I want the MCU Fantastic Four to have a Doctor Who vibe, I originally wanted David Tennant as Mr Fantastic, But as Tennant is Kilgrave, I decided to cast Matt Smith.
Sue Storm/ Invisible Woman: Lily James (Downton Abbey, Mamma Mia) - As Matt Smith and Lily James are boy friend and girlfriend I think that it would be a good idea to cast a real life couple as Reed Richards and Sue Storm.
Ben Grimm/The Thing: Robert Kazinsky (EastEnders) - Even though Robert Kazinsky played a small role in Captain Marvel, it is possible to get him as Ben Grimm/ The Thing, They castedGemma Chan as Doctor Minn erva from Captain Marvel and Cersi in Eternals.

Silencing Young Men in Class is Not Enough. Taking it one step further: Reprogramming Young Men in Universities Nationwide.

https://preview.redd.it/htdlrb8qgjs51.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=12a1db2b9309e03a14643e19ffc46151f755bf9f

Silencing Young Men is not Enough...

Alison Downie, a professor at Indiana University, only allows female students to respond to "female only" questions. Lake Ingle tried to answer such a question. He did this to challenge Downie's "blatant discrimination based on sex." Lake Ingle was suspended from class and Downie requested he be kicked out. ( James, Vincent (2018). Student banned from class for challenging professor on gender wage gap. The Red Elephants, Mar 09 2018).
Sociologist Jacqueline Warwick, professor of gender studies, limits the participation of male students. "Men are not allowed to speak first." Warwick want this to become policy in all classes on her campus, not just her own (Timpf, Katherine (2015). 'Feminists' think female students are too scared to speak in class? National Review, Jan 22 2015).
Professor-in-training Stephanie McKellop, a graduate student at University of Pennsylvania takes it a step further: "I will always call on my Black Women students first, other people of colour get second tier, then White Women and if I have to, white men." (Wright, Matthew (2017). 'I always call on my black women students first': Penn teaching assistant under fire for saying she won't call on white male students in class. Daily Mail, Oct 20 2017. Notice McKello's use of the possessive "my black women.").

Taking it One step further: Reprogramming Young Men attending College Nationwide

https://preview.redd.it/zowlbofugjs51.jpg?width=2550&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8344491583a8f5e0f0f0378d06ea510ac6aaf436
Some universities run thought reprogramming courses for male students.
These courses are designed to replace "biases" with approved mental cognitions. None of these programs have been empirically assessed to see if they cause short or long term harm to the young men who are being mentally reprogrammed. Studies have not examined for important possibilities such as increased rates of suicide, increased use of alcohol and drugs, decreased scholastic grades, elevated rates of drop out, increased fear of dating or the triggering of one or more mental illness crisis.
At the University of Texas at Austin the mental health center treats masculinity as a mental illness. They combat it through their "MasculinUT" program. The goal is to teach men to reject masculinity and traditional roles such as protectoprovider. They teach men not to strive for success in a masculine way.
The mental health center at Brown University runs a reprogramming treatment class titled "Masculinity 101". Male students are deprogrammed from "toxic masculine norms" and mentally reprogrammed to feminist-defined roles (Mastrangelo, Alana (2018). Brown University provides programs for 'unlearning toxic masculinity.' Breitbart, Oct 23, 2018).

https://preview.redd.it/f7f6l3zxgjs51.jpg?width=500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c9ccbf7463458c848c642db38f8c326543b6c8cc
First year male students at Gettysburg College are forced to watch a film which describes "toxic masculinity", then participate in a four hour reprogramming session which describes masculinity as "an unacceptable human trait." (Freshmen at Gettysburg College are forced to watch a film that tells them the phrase 'be a man' is 'toxic masculinity.' Daily Mail, Oct 18 2016).
Claremont College held an event "Masculinity+Mental Health", teaching male students "Masculinity can be extremely toxic to our mental health." (Payton, Bre (2016). College students: Masculinity is 'extremely toxic to our mental health.' The Federalist, Oct 04 2016).
Duke University runs a "Men's Project", consisting of a 9-week seminar which "questions and deconstructs toxic masculinities" (Alexander, Harriet (2016). U.S. university offers course for men to 'deconstruct toxic masculinities.' The Telegraph, Oct 01 2016). They also offer "safe spaces" where male students can "contemplate their toxic masculinity." (Melchior, Jillian (2016). Duke offers men a 'safe space' to contemplate their 'toxic masculinity.' Fox News, Oct 02 2016).
The University of Wisconsin created "safe spaces" where males attend a 6-week program to deprogram "toxic masculinity". Young men are then mentally reprogrammed to be social justice warriors who "advance gender equity and raise consciousness in their communities."
Princeton University believes incoming male students are angry, violent and potential rapists. (Krayden, David (2017). Princeton seeks to restrain males and their 'toxic masculinity. The Daily Caller, Jul 25 2017).
Wheaton College (Massachusetts) created "safer spaces" through their "Healthy masculinity" program, where male students are able to discuss "healthy and toxic masculinity".

2020.10.07 18:04 daphometisgone Frequently Asked Questions

I've been in the Floyd fanbase for a little while now, and I keep seeing the same questions show up from newcomers. This isn't bad, I had the same questions, but it can be a tad annoying, so I felt someone had to make at least a basic FAQ. I'll try and sort this by the most asked to the least asked.
TABLE OF CONTENTS:
  1. I just listened to The Dark Side of the Moon, what should I listen to next? (Album listening order)
  2. Who is Syd Barrett?
  3. What's the deal with the feud between Roger Waters and David Gilmour?
  4. I listened to all of the studio albums, now what? (Info on live and solo albums)
  5. Why can’t I find The Wall film? What options do I have to watch it?

I just listened to The Dark Side of the Moon, what should I listen to next?

First off, if you're getting into Floyd and you haven't listened to DSOTM, go listen to it. Alright, I'll try and organize this into tiers based on how essential they are. Please keep in mind Pink Floyd's style varied WILDLY from album to album, it's what makes them so good, so your favorite Floyd album might be pretty low. I'm not saying the ones that are lower are bad, just fewer people overall like them.
1."The Big 4": The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall
Sometimes referred to as "The Big 5" (Including Meddle), or "The Big 3" (Not including Animals), these albums define what is essentially Pink Floyd's golden age. They are not only Floyd's best selling albums but also all came out back to back. In the modern era, these are usually regarded as the bands 4 best, representing the peak of their songwriting and instrumentation. They are all concept albums, so it is preferred if you do a little outside research to fully appreciate them, I would personally recommend Polyphonic's The Dark Side of the Moon Project and his video on Wish You Were Here. I'd also recommend the OUTSTANDING https://www.thewallanalysis.com/. As for Animals, check out Lie Likes Music or Vinyl Rewind (He has great videos on The Wall too).
  1. An Overview: The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, Meddle, The Division Bell
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is Pink Floyd's first album and the only one made while Syd Barrett was their frontman. It's a highly experimental and psychedelic album, so if you're into that check it out. Meddle was the last album before DSOTM (Ignoring Obscured by Clouds). It's remembered specifically for the song Echoes, a 20-minute epic that takes up the entire B-Side of the vinyl. It is considered by many to by the best Pink Floyd song and a precursor to the style of sound used on DSOTM. The Division Bell is Pink Floyd's final album (Even though it's actually not, I'll explain later). The album is a reflection on Pink Floyd's troubled history (Especially the final track), it also follows the concept that communication can solve most problems, and that a lack of it causes a whole new host of problems. It is also the PF album with the most songs written by a non-band member, Polly Samson, wife of guitarist David Gilmour. The themes of communication inevitably tie into the drama surrounding Roger Waters leaving the band (Again, I'll explain later), however, David denies that any songs are about his relationship with Roger. This is complete and utter horseshit
  1. Pink Floyd Finds Their Sound: A Saucerful of Secrets, Atom Heart Mother
Both of these albums are generally liked and come from the era of PF immediately after Syd Barrett left the band. Don't have as much to say here. I think both of these albums are pretty good.
  1. Not Your Grandma's Pink Floyd: Ummagumma, The Final Cut, A Momentary Lapse of Reason, The Endless River
These are considered PF's controversial albums. Ummagumma followed A Saucerful of Secrets and lacked any Syd Barrett influence at all. It was released as a double album, with the first record being a live disc and the second being the studio album. The live disc is very good and it's worth checking out the album just for this, however, the studio side is a mess. Each band member did their songs by themselves and it's clear that they did not have many ideas. Many consider this to be Floyd's worst album. The Final Cut follows The Wall and attempts to build upon it. Attempts being the keyword. It was made without any involvement from keyboardist Richard Wright and was the album with the most influence from Roger Waters. Waters planned the album as a soundtrack for the 1982 film adaptation of The Wall. With the onset of the Falklands War, he rewrote it as a concept album exploring what he considered the betrayal of his father, who died serving in the Second World War. Waters provided lead vocals for all but one track, and he is credited for all songwriting. It doesn't sound exactly like what a Waters solo album sounds like but if you aren't a big fan of him then this is NOT going to work for you. Luckily I, and many others are, so there's still a big audience for this. A Momentary Lapse of Reason was made with zero involvement from Waters and minimal contributions from Richard Wright and drummer Nick Mason. After Waters' departure, it was an attempt to re-invent Floyd, using all the new technologies of the time. Due to this, it is now easily the most dated PF album. If you're listening to this I'd recommend listening to the 2019 remix contained on Pink Floyd: The Later Years (Actual boxset is $$$ but it's all on Spotify), the remix attempts to add Wright and Mason back in, and make it a bit less dated, this greatly improves the album, possibly putting it above The Division Bell in terms of quality. The Endless River is the final Pink Floyd album, releasing in 2014. Yes, just 6 years ago. It's actually based off of jam sessions intended for The Division Bell, but there was so much they eventually just decided to release it as its own album, as a way to commemorate Richard Wright, who has sadly passed away. All but one track on it is completely instrumental. This album gets a bad rap for being a little aimless and feeling "Empty" when compared to other Floyd albums, but the music here is still very good. It probably should have been treated as a PF compilation album and not a new studio album, but that's just my opinion.
  1. Soundtracks: More, Obscured by Clouds
Soundtracks Pink Floyd made for the films More and The Valley. They're pretty good. OBC is better than more. Nothing much else to say

Who is Syd Barrett?

Okay well, I can't really put a whole man's life here but I'll tell you what's important for Pink Floyd fans. Syd Barrett was a founding member of Pink Floyd and extremely important in defining their sound. He was the band's frontman from 1965-68. he left after his behavior had become increasingly erratic and "Unpredictable" due to continued LSD use, most people now believe that Barrett suffered from some form of mental illness, possibly Aspergers or schizophrenia, although members of his family deny he suffered from any mental illness. Once described as joyful, friendly, and extroverted, he became increasingly depressed and socially withdrawn, and experienced hallucinations, disorganized speech, memory lapses, intense mood swings, and periods of catatonia. Although the changes began gradually, he went missing for a long weekend and, according to several friends, including Wright, came back "a completely different person.". Once Barrett's behavior began to seriously affect the band, specifically with live gigs, Barrett gradually became less involved in the band, before leaving. After releasing 2 solo albums Barrett essentially disappeared from public life. The situation surrounding Barrett left a deep and permanent impact on the band, with them looking back and feeling as if they should have done more to save their friend. Barrett most notably inspired Wish You Were Here, blaming his downfall on the music industry and the band's pursuit of success.

What's the deal with the feud between Roger Waters and David Gilmour?

Like the last question, this could take up its own entire post but I'll try and summarize the best I can. I've taken a bit from Wikipedia so far, and honestly, for this, I may as well directly quote Roger's Wikipedia page
Amidst creative differences, Waters left Pink Floyd in 1985 and began a legal battle with the band regarding their continued use of the name and material. In December 1985, Waters issued a statement to EMI and CBS invoking the "Leaving Member" clause in his contract. In October 1986, he initiated High Court proceedings to formally dissolve the Pink Floyd partnership. In his submission to the High Court he called Pink Floyd a "spent force creatively". Gilmour and Mason opposed the application and announced their intention to continue as Pink Floyd. Waters claims to have been forced to resign like Wright had been years earlier, and decided to leave Pink Floyd based on legal considerations, saying: "If I hadn't, the financial repercussions would have wiped me out completely."
In December 1987, Waters and Pink Floyd reached an agreement. Waters was released from his contractual obligation with O'Rourke, and he retained the copyrights to the Wall concept and the inflatable Animals pig. Pink Floyd released three studio albums without him: A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987), The Division Bell (1994), and The Endless River (2014). In 2005, Waters said of their almost 20 years of animosity: "I don't think any of us came out of the years from 1985 with any credit ... It was a bad, negative time, and I regret my part in that negativity."
Basically, there was some confusion when Roger left the band and he was under the impression that the band would dissolve after The Final Cut, however, David and Nick (Richard was not part of the band at this time) were under the impression that Roger was simply leaving and there was still the potential for more albums under the Pink Floyd name. So when they started work on a new Pink Floyd album without him, Roger felt betrayed. Nowadays he's said that he regrets this lawsuit, but tensions between him and David specifically have not eased. At the time of writing this Roger has somewhat recently put out a video on his YouTube channel and Facebook page directly calling out the rest of the band for not allowing him to use official Pink Floyd social media to promote his work, and everything is terrible again.

I listened to all of the studio albums, now what?

Don't worry! There's still a ton of PF material for you to check out. Pink Floyd's live shows are legendary, they were ambitious and ahead of their time visually, the music was pretty damn good too, arguably better than the studio stuff. The MAIN live stuff are as follows
People LOVE Live at Pompeii, and I love it too. It's considered one of the best concert films of all time, not just the best Pink Floyd one. It's the band playing in their prime inside of an abandoned Pompeii amphitheater. I'd say this one is the most essential one, however, it's worth stating that the modern releases of the film have been heavily tampered with, and the changes are universally hated. The version contained on the DVD release and The Early Years box set is the "Directors Cut", which most notably adds CGI stuff? It just cuts away from the band to look at terribly dated CGI, whereas the original cut rarely completely cut away from the band. I've also heard that the speed of the music was altered but I can't remember if I noticed that the last time I listened to TEY version. HOWEVER, while I do not promote piracy, I believe I should state that the original version can still be found on some corners of the internet. However the music is so damn good, you'll still enjoy the director's cut.
ITAOT is another beloved piece of Floyd’s live material. It's an amalgamation of multiple shows from, you guessed it, Floyd's short 1980-1981 tour of The Wall. What you need to understand about that tour is that it wasn't as much a rock concert as it was musical theatre, they ran through the entirety of the album, while trying to tell its story. It's to this day one of the most ambitious concerts ever, the build a whole ass Wall on stage during the first half of the show, and knocked it down at the end. There were a ton of projections and animations, not only on Floyd's trademark circular screen but on the wall itself. The animations specifically were insane, and above anything, Floyd had done before, and some of the more simple projections were great too. The Wall was not only a feast for the ears, but for the eyes. And because of that, the entire Floyd fanbase is extremely upset that barely any footage from any of these concerts have been released, we only have the live album. You might be thinking "Well, what can they do? It wasn't supposed to be a concert movie, just a live album", except you'd be wrong. A large portion of the tour was professionally shot on 70mm film, intended for use in the wall film, however, the footage was deemed too dark, and not used in the film. Roger Waters HAS THIS FOOTAGE, we don't exactly know why Roger is just leaving this beautiful concert in his attic or whatever, but until then if you want to experience this tour, you'll have to rely on bootlegs or ITAOT, both of which are still pretty good options, it just sucks that we know there's a better option.
The Delicate Sound of Thunder is considered to be pretty good, maybe not as good as the previous two. It was Floyd's tour to go along with A Momentary Lapse of Reason so there's no Roger. This one, similar to A Momentary Lapse of Reason, got a remix for The Later Years set, except they actually went above and beyond and completely remastered and re-edited the film. This edited version will soon be seeing a solo Blu-Ray, Vinyl, etc. release, as well as apparently coming to select theatres.
Pulse is basically exactly the same situation as TDSOT, except it’s for The Division Bell and not liked as much.
At the 2005 Live 8 Charity event, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright, and Nick Mason surprised the audience by reuniting for the first time in nearly 25 years. As explained above, tensions between Waters and Gilmour stopped Waters from ever playing with his old bandmates, but since it was for charity, he finally did. However, this would be the last time the band’s prime lineup would play together again, as Richard Wright would pass away 3 years later. Opinions on this performance seem to be slightly mixed, but it’s an important part of the band’s history so I need to mention it.
The Early Years was a massive box set with over 33 discs released in 2016. It compromises of material made by Pink Floyd between 1965-1972 that was nit on their albums. This consists of some singles and demos, but most notably for our purposes, there are ALOT of live performances. These range in quality so I’m not gonna give a blanket statement that it’s good or bad, but there are some real gems in there. The box set contains 7 volumes, 6 of which were released independently, so if you want material from a specific pre-Dark Side album seek them out. There was also a “Highlights” CD called Cre/ation released, so if you want TEY without having to shell out the big bucks check it out. The actual box set is ridiculously expensive, and so are the individual volumes, so I’d recommend just listening to it on Spotify.
The Later Years is the same deal but for the post-Final Cut stuff, there are still some good songs, it’s still pretty expensive. This time there’s no individual volumes, but there is a highlights album, and it has a vinyl edition this time. It has a remix of A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Delicate Sound of Thunder and those are cool. Listen on Spotify.
The Immersion boxsets were massive boxsets made for The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall. Each has pretty good live performances contained on some of their discs, with The Wall’s being Is There Anybody Out There?
Okay okay, so, you listened to all 15 of the studio albums, and all the live stuff you’re interested in. It’s not like there are FOURTEEN MORE albums to listen to. Because that’s how many solo albums there are. Okay, so here is when I would normally tell you which ones to listen to, but honestly, I can’t. I tried asking around but everyone has different opinions, if you like David’s songs on Floyd albums listen to his solo albums, same with Roger, Syd, and Rick. The only thing everyone agrees on is that Nick’s albums aren’t that good. I’ve heard some extremely staunch defenders of Radio KAOS by Roger Waters, David Gilmour by David Gilmour, The Madcap Laughs by Syd Barrett, and Broken China by Richard Wright (This one is kind of hard to find, only official release is on its original CD, it’s not even on streaming services : /), so maybe check out those? I really can’t tell you which ones to listen to. My personal favorites are, The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking, Is This the Life We Really Want?, Barrett, David Gilmour, and Rattle That Lock. I could also talk about live solo albums but this section is far too long.
Okay okay, so now you’ve listened to all the studio albums, live albums, solo albums, and solo live albums, is there ANYTHING ELSE left. Well, now we venture into the realm of live bootlegs. Live shows never released officially but distributed by fans. For the previous section, I couldn’t use my Floyd knowledge due to varying opinions, but here I can’t use my Floyd knowledge cause I have none for this. I’ve never been into the bootleg scene, but it is very popular. The 2 things I do know, is that the most essential bootleg is called Animal Instincts and that the main source for bootlegs is a forum called Yeeshkul! that can be found here.

Why can’t I find The Wall film? What options do I have to watch it?

It is my personal belief that The Wall (1982) is not only the most important non-album Floyd material, but that it is quite possibly the finest musical film ever made, and one of my personal favorite films of all time. It’s not for everyone, and die-hard Wall fans find problems with it, but it is definitely an important film. So, why can’t you find it? It’s not on streaming services, it’s not available to buy or rent digitally, hell it’s not even on Blu-Ray, let alone 4K Blu-Ray. The tl;dr of why it’s so hard to find is that Roger Waters is a fake and a fraud, and when he is rightly punished for his crimes against humanity he will not be given any mercy or pity. Seriously though, it comes down to him and his ego, as well as the director Alan Parker’s. Basically, neither of them were happy with how the movie turned out so they have not released it in recent years. So, what are your options for watching The Wall? Well…
So, for the releases done in the 80's, they're a pan and scan transfer using an original 35mm print. This is where a fake camera is placed over the film and moved around in order to show more on the screen without properly transferring the film from 16:9 to 4:3.
These include the VHS, Laser Disc, CED, and Beta releases of the film.
In 1991, a Letterbox version of the VHS and Laserdisc was produced, which is that 35mm print but now properly formatted to fit a 4:3 aspect ratio.
In 1994, another VHS was produced of The Wall, and I believe another standard Laserdisc was as well.
In 1999 came the DVD release, which was the first major attempt at a restoration of The Wall, which changed the film's color grading and remixed the soundtrack to 5.1.
Since then, the only major official variation is a TV airing of the film that was in HD (sometime in the early 2010's), which, again, has new color grading.
There's a Laserdisc from Japan in Wide Screen released in 1997, but that is from the same time period as the DVD remaster of The Wall.

So, do you want superior color? Get the earlier versions. Do you want clearer video? Go for the later versions. Do you want the film in HD? Go for the TV transfer. Do you actually want to watch the film legally? Don’t go for the TV transfer. Alan Parker recently passed away, so our chances of a proper modern release have shot up, but don’t hold your breath on it. In my personal opinion, I’d say go with the DVD or TV version, even if acquiring that TV version isn’t exactly fair use by copyright law standards, although, it’s really their fault people are pirating the film.
Alright, that’s all the questions I have for now. This FAQ is not complete! Please suggest questions, give corrections, or add onto my answers so that this can be an even better resource for new fans!

Critic Reviews

Areajugones - Spanish - 9 / 10
Crash Bandicoot returns with an adventure that oozes nostalgia, originality, fun and a multitude of bonus content to delight fans and newcomers to the saga. Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is the game the world has been waiting for many years, and it also manages to go beyond all expectations.
Attack of the Fanboy - Dean James - 4.5 / 5 stars
Crash Bandicoot may have had a rough patch for a number of years before his triumphant return in the N. Sane Trilogy, but Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time proves that he is still one of the titans of the platformer genre with his most content rich and well designed adventure to date.
COGconnected - Rhett Waselenchuk - 90 / 100
Crash is back, baby! Fans can rejoice as Toys for Bob and Activision have come together to create platforming perfection.
Destructoid - Chris Carter - 9 / 10
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is a strong return for the series, and a showcase of what might have been if we got a true follow-up to Crash 3. I sincerely hope that Activision entrusts Toys for Bob (and Vicarious Visions) with the keys to the Crash kingdom from here on out. I wanna see more of the little guy.
Everyeye.it - Giuseppe Arace - Italian - 8.8 / 10
Long-lived, colorful, fun and complex, It's About Time conveys the return to precision platforming, where every jump is calibrated with due accuracy counts, and in which the player's skill is mainly enhanced.
Game Informer - Ben Reeves - 8.5 / 10
Mastering Crash's aerial acrobatics is highly rewarding, but the journey to get there is occasionally frustrating
GameByte - Oliver Hope - 9 / 10 stars
The gameplay is challenging yet achievable. It gives you the right amount of difficulty without forcing you to throw the controller at the TV screen. It runs smoothly and really is just a whole lot of fun to play.
GameMAG - Azamat Tegaev - Russian - 9 / 10
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is one of the best platformer games we've played in recent years. Toys for Bob managed to perfectly encapsulate the soul of original trilogy, and then create more with it, by not only repeating old gameplay tricks with new and shiny graphics, but also by offering something completely new, which would definitely make all the fans bursting with joy.
GameSpot - Mike Epstein - 8 / 10
Crash 4 is a pitch-perfect revival of the classic platformer franchise.
GamesBeat - Mike Minotti - 5 / 5 stars
But now, I feel safe saying that Crash Bandicoot 4 is the new best game in the series. It captures that fun-yet-simple platforming from the original, but its creative levels, mask abilities, and clever bosses help it surpass the PlayStation trilogy
GamesRadar+ - Alex Avard - 4.5 / 5 stars
A sequel with smarts and style, Crash Bandicoot 4 proves there's still life in the old Bandicoot yet. It's about time indeed.
GamingTrend - David Flynn - 95 / 100
Crash 4 will delight fans new and old with its stylized visuals, delightful sense of humor, and hard as nails platforming. While the new characters have a few control issues, the game is an absolute blast from start to finish.
Generación Xbox - Gabriel Fuentes - Spanish - 9.8 / 10
Crash Bandicoot arrives spinning and jumping in a new release that solidifies even more the great work that Toys for Bob has been doing with its resmasterizations. Crash Bandicoot 4: It's about time could easily be on the podium of the best Crash.
God is a Geek - Mick Fraser - 8.5 / 10
Full of colour, humour, and challenge, Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is a storming return and a great follow up to the original trilogy.
Hardcore Gamer - Kevin Dunsmore - 4 / 5
Crash Bandicoot fans have waited well over a decade for a proper follow-up that honored the legacy of Naughty Dog's classic trilogy.
Hobby Consolas - Spanish - 88 / 100
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time manages to merge the good old fun of the original first three games with a lot of new and very clever additions to the formula, making it the true sequel we have been waiting for all this years. As the title says: it's about time.
IGN - Jonathon Dornbush - 8 / 10
Crash Bandicoot 4 is a great return to form, with some new ideas that add a fresh spin to Crash's classic gameplay.
IGN Italy - Marco Esposto - Italian - 8.7 / 10
A love message for Crash Bandicoot's old fans. The new look is great, but sometimes the difficulty need to be balanced.
IGN Spain - David Soriano - Spanish - 9 / 10
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About is an incredible return from a beloved franchise that hadn't had a new game for a decade. It takes everything that made the original trilogy great and expands it in a way we only think it could surpass... Naughty Dog itself.
Kotaku - Mike Fahey - Unscored
Don’t let the lush, colorful graphics and whimsical, xylophone-heavy soundtrack fool you. Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time’s fun and frivolous facade hides a game that feels like it’s actively trying to murder mischievous marsupials. It’s about snatching victory from the jaws, bombs, fast-moving vehicles, spinning blades, laser grids, and fire spouts of death. I failed much more often than I succeeded during my run thanks to Ray West and his lackeys, but I had a great time doing it.
Polygon - Austen Goslin - Unscored
Toys for Bob’s modern Crash game looks great but feels bad
Press Start - Kieron Verbrugge - 8.5 / 10
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is both a successful celebration of the original trilogy as well as a worthy follow-up. Toys For Bob has taken the essence of what fans loved about the classics, distilled and bottled it and then shaken it up. Some old issues rear their heads, and there are definitely some dud levels and boss fights, but it's a package so chock-full of content that the good far outweighs the small amount of bad. Anyone hankering for some old-school Crash Bandicoot action will find exactly that and more, and all wrapped up in one of the most gorgeous platformers I've ever seen.
Saudi Gamer - Arabic - 8 / 10
An outstanding return for the beloved series! With new mechanics, new playable characters and gameplay changes, Toys for Bob made Crash even more fun while staying true to the series fans.
Spaziogames - Domenico Musicò - Italian - 8 / 10
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is a new beginnning for the series. Toys for Bob introduces new abilities and a lot of contents for hardcore gamers, but the real evolution is yet to come.
Stevivor - Steve Wright - 9 / 10
Simply put, It’s About Time manages to capture the feeling of old school, challenging Crash games of old while adding a modern spin to increase enjoyability for those of us who don’t enjoy bashing our heads against a brick wall when difficulty skyrockets. It’s full of quirkiness, humour, and is a worthy sequel in comparison to Naughty Dog’s previous outings. Kudos to Toys for Bob.
The Games Machine - Daniele Cucchiarelli - Italian - 9.1 / 10
Crash is back again with one of its best adventures that feels and plays like a modern instant classic. Welcome back good old Bandicoot!
TrueGaming - حسين الموسى - Arabic - 8.5 / 10
This is Crash Bandicoot, the one you remember from your childhood memories with its strengths and weaknesses. This game is a return to form for this beloved franchise but we wished that base consoles version was 60 fps instead of 30 fps.
VG247 - Dom Peppiatt - 3 / 5 stars
It’s a shame, then, that some of the level design choices don’t really pair up with the engine Toys for Bob has built this love-letter to 90s platforming games in. Loose and floaty physics, an abundance of different mechanics that often feel part-baked, and some design choices that feel sadistic – rather than simply difficult – leave this approach to Crash Bandicoot feeling less like a true sequel, and more like a licensed spin-off.

2020.09.30 18:07 mccanntech Wi-Fi 101: Origins and History

Wi-Fi as we know it today is a series of standards, voted on by a worldwide engineering body, the IEEE. The IEEE is an open membership organization with more than 423,000 engineers in 160 countries. It took years of work and dozens of proposals to form the original Wi-Fi standard in 1997. It took even more effort over the last 23 years to get to where we are now.
The story of the invention of Wi-Fi depends on who you ask. There is a complicated history leading up to that original 1997 standard, and the truth is hard to decipher. I'm not capable of litigating who invented what, but there are some key players to know about. Where possible, I will point out the people and the organizations behind the technology.

Wired and Wireless Precursors: Say ALOHA to Wireless Networking

In 1968, researchers at the University of Hawaii began to investigate if radio waves could be used for communication between computers. The project was led by professor Norman Abramson, Dr. Franklin Kuo, and a team of faculty and students. It would go on to become known as ALOHAnet.
During this time, wired computer networking was in its infancy, and evolving rapidly. Packet switching was conceived of by Paul Baran in 1964, and first demonstrated by Donald Davies in August 1968. In October 1969, the first ARPANET link was established between UCLA and the Stanford. By June 1971, ALOHAnet was the world's first wireless packet switched data network.(1)
During the development of ALOHAnet, Abramson and his team had to solve many foundational issues with wireless networking, including collisions and failed transmissions. They decided that a random access protocol would be the best way to accomplish this. The ALOHA protocol allowed terminals to send data whenever they had it, and listen to their transmissions to make sure they were received, and acknowledged. If a transmission failed, terminals would resend after a random delay. This was simple and effective, but had problems scaling up to more users. The ALOHA protocol was improved and expanded, and was the inspiration for CSMA/CA.
ALOHAnet was a pioneering technological marvel, but it was experimental and not fit for commercial use. Most critically, unlicensed spectrum for computer communications was not available to the public yet. Since the University of Hawaii didn't have a way to sell the technology, it was put into the public domain. ALOHAnet was decommissioned in 1976, but it inspired others to continue what it started. Most notably, Robert "Bob" Metcalfe studied it for his PhD dissertation.
Through the 1970s, many wired local area network technologies were developed. Some were proprietary, and some were open standards. Most of this early work has gone on to become ANSI or IEEE standards, and formed the basis of the computer communication and the Internet. A standards-based approach wasn't destiny, and we all benefit from the pioneers who pushed for standards over proprietary solutions. All of this groundbreaking work on wired standards helped lay the foundation for wireless.

Key Dates In Wired Networking History

The Wright Brothers of Wi-Fi

By 1985, all the pieces were in place for the development of a universal wireless networking standard. These were the Wild West days of wireless networking. Dozens of companies were competing to be the first to produce a successful product. Many companies came and went, so I'm only going to focus on the biggest and most important ones.

NCR and WaveLAN

In the 1980s, NCR Corporation was a big international company selling computers, ATMs, and cash registers. They wanted to develop a way to have their cash registers work wirelessly. This would give them a competitive advantage, and allow retail stores to avoid the costs and logistics of running cabling to every register. At the same time, cash registers were becoming more computer-like, so NCR sought to develop an International wireless standard that any computer could use. Two of the key engineers assigned to this project were Cees Links and Vic Hayes. Through 1986 and 1987, Vic and the other engineers at NCR developed a product which became known as WaveLAN.
NCR introduced WaveLAN to the world in 1990.(2) While WaveLAN was intended for use in cash registers, it was also positioned as a wireless alternative to Ethernet and Token Ring for PCs. In the 1990s, wireless products were expensive, and hard to use. The early drivers were buggy, and documentation was hard to find. WaveLAN network adapters cost hundreds of dollars, and access points could cost thousands. The high cost and limited usability kept WaveLAN as a niche product, mainly found in the big businesses that could afford them.
WaveLAN operated at 900MHz or 2.4 GHz, and offered speeds of 1 to 2 Mbps. It competed with Aironet's ARLAN and others which offered similar speeds, frequency ranges and hardware. Several companies also marketed wireless bridges and routers based on WaveLAN technology. Wireless networking products became a mess of competing companies and different implementations. The need for an International standard was clear.
NCR wanted to have Vic Hayes make the technical proposals to the IEEE on the companies behalf. Vic disagreed, and fought to stay independent and not do any of the proposals on behalf of NCR. The company agreed, and this actually worked to their benefit. Since Vic wasn't pushing NCR's proprietary solution, he gained the trust of others. Vic ended up becoming the first chairman of the IEEE 802.11 working group, giving him the nickname “Father of Wi-Fi"

IEEE and the 802.11 working group

In 1988, Vic Hayes approached the IEEE to contribute to the 802.4L, an existing committee creating a wireless standard based on Token Ring. As it turned out, that committee had become inactive, and the chairman had quit. This let to Vic becoming the chairman of 802.4L, and the forming of a new working group, 802.11. Ethernet and WaveLAN technology formed part of the technical base of the 802.11 committee, which was officially started in 1990.
WaveLAN and the knowledge of Vic Hayes' group at NCR helped form the basis, but countless others contributed as well. Many other companies submitted proposals for various aspects of the standard, and the group compromised and voted on the best ideas along the way. Most of their documents are still publicly available. The 802.11 group continued to work throughout the 1990s to develop the standard, which was a long and complicated process. It took 7 years and input from countless engineers to form the first Wi-Fi standard, known as 802.11-1997.
The first Wi-Fi standard was in some ways a messy compromise. It allowed for transmissions over Infrared or 2.4 GHz radio waves. It also allowed for two different frequency selection methods, which prevented guaranteed compatibility. In the end, both Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) and Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) were added to the standard. The group allowed these options as a way to please the entities involved in the creation, but it made the standard weak.
802.11-1997 never gained much traction. Despite that, the group got to work on its next set of standards, 802.11a and 802.11b, which were developed in parallel. The main difference between them was the frequencies and the modulation schemes they used.
802.11b hit the market first. Despite the slower speeds, people preferred the availability, lower cost, and longer range of the 2.4 GHz equipment. The success of 802.11b snowballed into the development of 802.11g, and made 2.4 GHz the defacto International wireless spectrum range for years to come.
In the late 1990s, Wi-Fi's success wasn't guaranteed. Early Wi-Fi devices were expensive, slow, and often incompatible with other devices. According to Vic Hayes, he approached many computers makers to persuade them to add Wi-Fi to their computers, but most of them said no. Steve Jobs and Apple wanted to add Wi-Fi to an upcoming laptop, but they wanted it to cost $100, not $500. They argued that the lower cost would make it more marketable to consumers.
Apple eventually got the $100 Wi-Fi card they wanted. The iBook and AirPort launched on July 21, 1999, a few months before the 802.11a and 802.11b standard were finalized. It was the first mainstream computer designed and sold with integrated wireless networking.

OFDM, CSIRO, and Dr. John O'Sullivan

This is where our story get murky. CSIRO is the Australian federal agency with a long history of scientific research. They have developed many advanced technologies, such as atomic absorption spectroscopy. According to CSIRO, Wi-Fi is an Australian invention. The truth isn't that simple, and it isn't that clear.
CSIRO's key insight came out of their work in radioastronomy. In 1977, CSIRO researcher Dr. John O'sullivan was searching for small exploding black holes. He wrote a paper about how fast Fourier transformations could be used to sharpen images from optical telescopes. As the waves traveled towards the telescope they became scrambled, and CSIRO developed a custom processor to use fast Fourier transformations to unscramble the image. While this technique didn't help him discover the black holes he was looking for, it helped to solve a different problem.
Starting in 1990, John O'Sullivan led a team of CSIRO scientists to develop a high-speed wireless network. Their goal was 100 Mbps, to compete with the best wired networks of the time. This caused them to look past the techniques used by ALOHAnet and WaveLAN, because they wouldn't be fast enough. One technical challenge they faced was how radio waves tend to bounce off surfaces indoors, causing an echo that distorts the signal. Using fast Fourier transformations, they found a way to transmit a signal while reducing that echo. Rather than using one fast wireless channel, they used lots of slower channels. This is known as multicarrier modulation.
Single-carrier modulation systems exploit only one signal frequency to transmit data. Multi-carrier modulation systems divide the whole frequency channel into subcarriers, and the data stream is divided into many low-rate streams transmitted in parallel. Single-carrier modulation has advantages, but multi-carrier modulation is better suited for high-bandwidth, short-range communication like Wi-Fi. In modern Wi-Fi standards, we use multi-carrier modulation in the form of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing, or OFDM.
According to their lawyer in a 2009 patent dispute, CSIRO did not invent Wi-Fi, but it did invent the best way of doing it. CSIRO scientists tested hundreds of techniques until it found a unique combination that worked at high speeds. That combination involved multi-carrier modulation, forward error-correcting, and frequency interleaving to send multiple copies of the data. This specific combination of techniques is the secret sauce the CSIRO applied for a patent for in 1992, and was granted in 1996.
CSIRO didn't invent the underlying techniques, since they were already known. Frequency division multiplexing dates back to the late 1870s, when telegraph companies were trying to increase their capacity. Multi-carrier modulation was described in the 1950s. OFDM is attributed to Bell Labs employee Robert W. Chang back in 1966. Interleaving also dates back to the 1960s. Forward error correction was used when NASA sent the Mariner mission to Mars in 1968.
CSIRO also wasn't the first to combine these techniques and apply them to computer communication. Harris Semiconductor sold modems to the US military using these techniques in the 1980s. Critically, the Harris modem was never patented since interleaving, modulation, and coding had been around for decades by the time Harris came along. According to testimony, Intel official Stephen Saltzman said that outside CSIRO, engineers didn't take the idea of a Wi-Fi patent using these techniques seriously. Experts at Intel had already shipped products based on OFDM with previous employers, and thought that a new patent with OFDM didn't seem credible. Regardless of the merits and the origin of the ideas, US patent #5,487,069 was granted in 1996.
During the development of the 802.11a standard, CSIRO made the IEEE aware of its patent and offered to license it. Beyond that offer, CSIRO never got involved in the creation of the 802.11 standards. Dozens of companies made proposals to the various 802.11 committees, offering to submit their ideas or license their patents. CSIRO never submitted a proposal for the original 1997 standard, or any of the revisions. Despite their lack of involvement in the process and lack of licensing agreement, 802.11a, 802.11g, and later IEEE standards would go on to use OFDM and multi-carrier modulation.
Years later, CSIRO used this as the basis for lawsuits against major networking and technology companies. CSIRO won settlements worth $205 million in 2009, and another $229 million in 2012. If you want more detail on the CSIRO patent fight, Joe Mullin wrote a good piece for ArsTechnica back in 2012. Mark Summerfield wrote a counter-point to Joe's article for Patentology, looking at what the CSIRO patent did and didn't cover.
The truth is a messy thing. In Wi-Fi's case, success truly did have many fathers.

802.11 Timeline

Footnotes:

1 - ALOHAnet used 100 KHz channels, operating at 9600 baud on the 407 and 413 MHz UHF frequencies. It originally connected seven computers across four islands, which communicated wirelessly with a central computer in a star network topology.
2 - AT&T would go on to buy NCR in 1991, only to spin off the remnants of the division as NCR and Lucent by 1996.

2020.09.28 22:48 CrappyMcDick How come Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is the most hated? (movie)

I've been re-watching the HP films lately, and Half Blood Prince seemingly might be me favorite now, the reason why that's kind of shocking is that this was never one of my favorites before. And it is quite amazing to me how this is somehow looked at as the worst Harry Potter film for a lot of people. I quickly want to mention that I've just started reading the books (40 pages in on Philosopher's Stone to be exact) so if anyone thinks I have said something wrong, explaining to me would be nice. This is just a discussion, not a grilling.
It seems to me that most of the criticism has in my opinion, been quite weak. It's especially quite annoying when it seems that people don't have the same critical look at Deathly Hallow's part 2. The Half Blood Prince is by no means a perfect film, I do recognize that it has it's problems. But when people complain that the film wastes time on the romantic subplot, I'd have to disagree. Within those scenes, we get characters growth, visual story telling. We also see Hermione and Harry discussing the narrative at the same time.
I understand that people wanted the film to focus on Voldemort's backstory more, but I think it is much more crucial to focus on the main 3. Ron was already a very inconsistent character before Half Blood Prince, which seems to have started in Prisoner of Azkaban, and the focus he got in Goblet of Fire was very poorly presented if you ask me. In Order of the Phoenix he didn't really have much of a focus at all. But if he didn't get the character development in this one, I don't think Deathly Hallows part 1 and 2 would have been able to work.
Another complaint I've heard is the whole burrow getting destroyed scene. Which I agree with, that whole scene is stupid and pointless, but how is that a big argument as to why the film doesn't work? It's like 5 minutes of the film, and I understand that Harry and Ginny were complete idiots in that scene, but if you look at the scene that transitions it, it seemed like David Yates didn't care about the scene at all. It was just a dumb thing written into the script.
I've also seen people say Ginny's character is bad in this film, which I also agree with. Their relationship suddenly starts out of no where, Ginny does hint in Order of the Phoenix that she likes him, but that's about it. This relationship is especially strange considering how Harry invites a muggle woman on a date in the beginning of the movie. I also think Bonnie Wright didn't particularly deliver her lines very well in this aspect, neither was the dialogue very good.

Look, I don't want to invalidate anyone's opinion, but to me it just kind of seems people have very thick nostalgia glasses, that they can't handle the fact the movie does some things differently. I find this particular clear when people complain Harry was psychically able to do something against Dumbledore's death. The reason why I think it's stupid to complain about this is because Harry trust's Dumbledore's word, it adds a certain emotional depth, that I don't think would have been there if Harry couldn't move psychically.
The reason why all of these things doesn't me as much as others, is because I simply love what David Yates did directing this. Even though I love Order of the Phoenix, I would be lying if I didn't think that movie is too fast paced, it felt too crammed, like it had too much to do. In Half Blood Prince there was a real atmosphere, having scenes with characters just chit-chtting is perfect, as it adds a lot of character, it also all felt purposeful.
The film making is also much better here than in Order of the Phoenix - the movie looks amazing. Bruno Delbonnel (the DP) was able to create this balance of darkness and warmth on the color palette and lighting, which is something that's also reflected in the tone of the film. The tone is very comedic, but behind that, it's very dark. The lighting also changes throughout, in most of Draco's scenes, it's much more white and cold. There's even the cave scene, where it's fully black and white. I also think the comedic tone works very well as it adds a lot of humanity to the characters.
Also, sorry for the bad grammar.

Female Supremacist Strategy: Silencing Young Men in Class is Not Enough. Taking it one step further: Reprogramming Young Men in Universities Nationwide.

https://preview.redd.it/yohkow1fqrl51.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7a82a54f3ac7894f97dbf9087db797d00c3049e5

Silencing Young Men is not Enough...

Alison Downie, a professor at Indiana University, only allows female students to respond to "female only" questions. Lake Ingle tried to answer such a question. He did this to challenge Downie's "blatant discrimination based on sex." Lake Ingle was suspended from class and Downie requested he be kicked out. ( James, Vincent (2018). Student banned from class for challenging professor on gender wage gap. The Red Elephants, Mar 09 2018).
Sociologist Jacqueline Warwick, professor of gender studies, limits the participation of male students. "Men are not allowed to speak first." Warwick want this to become policy in all classes on her campus, not just her own (Timpf, Katherine (2015). 'Feminists' think female students are too scared to speak in class? National Review, Jan 22 2015).
Professor-in-training Stephanie McKellop, a graduate student at University of Pennsylvania takes it a step further: "I will always call on my Black Women students first, other people of colour get second tier, then White Women and if I have to, white men." (Wright, Matthew (2017). 'I always call on my black women students first': Penn teaching assistant under fire for saying she won't call on white male students in class. Daily Mail, Oct 20 2017. Notice McKello's use of the possessive "my black women.").

Taking it One step further: Reprogramming Young Men attending College Nationwide

https://preview.redd.it/2w9vf2cjqrl51.jpg?width=2550&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8903870391a7fb2b95ad7fe1392470a4339b8469
Some universities run thought reprogramming courses for male students.
These courses are designed to replace "biases" with approved mental cognitions. None of these programs have been empirically assessed to see if they cause short or long term harm to the young men who are being mentally reprogrammed. Studies have not examined for important possibilities such as increased rates of suicide, increased use of alcohol and drugs, decreased scholastic grades, elevated rates of drop out, increased fear of dating or the triggering of one or more mental illness crisis.
At the University of Texas at Austin the mental health center treats masculinity as a mental illness. They combat it through their "MasculinUT" program. The goal is to teach men to reject masculinity and traditional roles such as protectoprovider. They teach men not to strive for success in a masculine way.
The mental health center at Brown University runs a reprogramming treatment class titled "Masculinity 101". Male students are deprogrammed from "toxic masculine norms" and mentally reprogrammed to feminist-defined roles (Mastrangelo, Alana (2018). Brown University provides programs for 'unlearning toxic masculinity.' Breitbart, Oct 23, 2018).

https://preview.redd.it/f32lbmklqrl51.jpg?width=500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cbd7585f5134ea065ba47ce7b76d91333ca3f854
First year male students at Gettysburg College are forced to watch a film which describes "toxic masculinity", then participate in a four hour reprogramming session which describes masculinity as "an unacceptable human trait." (Freshmen at Gettysburg College are forced to watch a film that tells them the phrase 'be a man' is 'toxic masculinity.' Daily Mail, Oct 18 2016).
Claremont College held an event "Masculinity+Mental Health", teaching male students "Masculinity can be extremely toxic to our mental health." (Payton, Bre (2016). College students: Masculinity is 'extremely toxic to our mental health.' The Federalist, Oct 04 2016).
Duke University runs a "Men's Project", consisting of a 9-week seminar which "questions and deconstructs toxic masculinities" (Alexander, Harriet (2016). U.S. university offers course for men to 'deconstruct toxic masculinities.' The Telegraph, Oct 01 2016). They also offer "safe spaces" where male students can "contemplate their toxic masculinity." (Melchior, Jillian (2016). Duke offers men a 'safe space' to contemplate their 'toxic masculinity.' Fox News, Oct 02 2016).
The University of Wisconsin created "safe spaces" where males attend a 6-week program to deprogram "toxic masculinity". Young men are then mentally reprogrammed to be social justice warriors who "advance gender equity and raise consciousness in their communities."
Princeton University believes incoming male students are angry, violent and potential rapists. (Krayden, David (2017). Princeton seeks to restrain males and their 'toxic masculinity. The Daily Caller, Jul 25 2017).
Wheaton College (Massachusetts) created "safer spaces" through their "Healthy masculinity" program, where male students are able to discuss "healthy and toxic masculinity".

0' - Olly Murs is on the hunt for celebrities to play in this year's Soccer Aid. Unfortunately all the good ones turn him down so he's left with some Youtubers and the bloke from McFly.
0' - An appearance for Kammy doesn't save the VT, but at least Lee Mack lampshaded the shocking acting. At least we get some classic John Barnes rapping.
0' - It's clear the 19:00 kick off above was optimistic, maybe we'll get around to the football at some point tonight!
0' - I think we're kicking off! We have Clive Tyldesley and Chris Stark on the mic - a legend/celeb lineup even in the commentary box. When will we see a celebrity referee as well?
0' - Someone is doing an "inspirational" speech. I don't know who it is. Possibly Derek Acorah from beyond the grave?
0' - And we're off. The players take the now familiar knee and 8 year old Benjamin gets us underway (before getting off the pitch as quick as possible)
3' - An early free kick for the World XI after Jeremy Lynch is bundled over by John Bishop. Michael Essien to take... but it's high, wide and not too handsome.
6' - Kelly Smith plays a lovely pass to set Danny Jones of McFly through, but he's comfortably tackled by Mikael Silvestre
7' - Chelcee Grimes has the ball out wide in the box, lays it off to Michael Essien but his shot is blocked
8' - Gareth Barry looks like a player who only retired a few weeks ago with some nice tricks and little tidy passes in midfield
14' - We have our first substitution of the game as Chunkz replaces Tom Davis up front
17' - Lianne Sanderson puts through Chelcee Grimes, but Grimes is just a little slow to it and David James tidies up on the second attempt
17' - World XI still have it, and some tidy passing around the box between Sanderson and Dermot Kennedy almost creates a chance but Kennedy can't turn in the box and it's cleared away
19' - The ball is threaded through for England by someone blonde (Murs?) but Locksmith uses his strength to keep Danny Jones from getting on the end of it
20' - Evra feeds Jeremy Lynch in acres of space, but a very poor touch costs him the chance and Wes Brown is in before he can get it back out of his feet
24' - Following a particularly long drinks break, we're back in the action with the scores still 0-0 and a corner for World XI
25' - The ball falls in the box following the corner, the best chance is probably for Lianne Sanderson but all the shots are somehow blocked
28' - Substitution - Yung Filly for Danny Jones
30' - Patrice Evra gets the ball out wide in the box, thinks about crossing but instead puts in a great shot into the bottom corner, but David James is up to the task
31' - Yung Filly chases a long ball from Gareth Barry and gets to it before it runs out of play near the corner flag. Patrice Evra bundles into the back of him and gives a freekick but it goes nowhere
34' - Yung Filly chases a long ball, and from about 35 yards down the pitch he whips in an incredible cross to John Terry (of all people) but he miscues and the ball goes wide for a throw in
36' - Substitution - Lee Mack is coming on for the previously subbed Chunkz to the sound of Chesney Hawkes. Paddy McGuinness replaces John Bishop, and Kem Cetinay for Lianne Sanderson
36' - The latter appears to be a mistake as World XI now only have 1 woman on the pitch, so Serge is replaced by Lianne Sanderson
40' - The game is coming alive and I'm struggling to keep up with the live commentary. Jeremy Lynch makes a decent run but is too slow to beat David James, then Essien curls a shot from distance wide
41' - Gareth Barry leaves one on Lynch as he tries to turn around the halfway line
43' - John Terry is taking this a little more seriously than the rest and goes flying in on K. Cetinay
44' - Grimes gets the ball and tries to play in Lynch, but he loses the flight of the ball and it bounces off his back. Lynch tries to win the ball back but runs it out of play for a goal kick
46' - Sound wonderful skill by Evra, Cetinay feeds him back down the wing and a ball comes in for Lynch around the penalty spot but another move falls apart at Lynch's feet
HALF TIME - 0-0
A huge £5.5m has been raised for charity so far - if you're watching or reading along please donate on the website or (for UK viewers) on the phone numbers above
HT - A Jack White impersonator and a holographic Robbie Williams are singing a terrible halftime song - I have no idea what it happening now
HT - My red wine has ran out so I'm watching the second half without a drink. Oh no
HT - Lots of subs at half time - hopefully they'll announce them soon! Iain Stirling is one, but I don't know who for! Gilligan?
47' - A. Allen's first touch almost gets him in trouble but Robbie Keane's touch puts it wide
54' - GOAL - Lynch beats a man and then plays a simple pass to Robbie Keane, who curls one in off the post. There's little Alfie Allen could do about that.
56' - There's stuff going on and I can't keep up. I think something happened here but I didn't type it and can't remember
56' - Substitution - McGuinness off for Humes and James Bay is on for Mack
57' - A shot is cleared off the line by Chapman. I have no idea who took it, I was trying to work out the subs
58' - GOAL - 1-1 - A ball in to the box puts Yung Filly in the box with more space than outer space. He makes no mistake and slips it past Oduba
59' - Lynch gets one on one with Alfie Allen with no one else around but the celebrity goalkeeper blocks the shot with his feet and keeps it out
62' - Lynch feeds... someone? on the edge of the box, but the shot is blocked by his own player Fleeting
63' Lynch running away from the goal goes to ground under a fairly light touch from Terry and it's a free kick. J. Terry is not happy.
63' - Substitution - Joe Wicks is on for the goal scorer Yung Filly
65' - Substitution - Jason Manford for Kem Cetinay
69' - Substitution - Davide Santon Santan Dave is on, but I have no idea who for - I'm saying Kennedy but I'm guessing at this point
74' - Jason Manford has the ball on the edge of the box, it's taken off him by his team mate Dave but Dave's shot is blocked in the box
75' - Makelele is still the tidy player he was, even as centre back. He brings the ball forward and plays tries to play Lynch through but it's picked out by Humes
75' - Substitution - Dommett for Chapman (I don't think that's allowed!). Manford is subbed for Roman Kemp
76' - I've been reliably informed by CarrowCanary that the second half only needs one woman so it is allowed. Also means that Grimes is off so I have no idea what the teams are
77' - England win a few corners in quick succession but they're cleared and World XI are awarded a free kick to get things clear
82' - James Bay is through in to the box, it looks like he's held back by Iain Stirling but nothing is given. Stirling is a lucky man.
84' - Did Andy Cole just replace Heskey? I think so. Who knows
85' - Patrice Evra makes a wonderful run, but Mark Wright clatters through him winning all of the ball. Lovely stuff!
86' - A tidy cross and Andy Cole will always get on the end of it but he can't direct it on target
88' - Lynch tries twice to beat Humes but the ball bounces messily off his knee and goes out for a goal kick
89' - Manford is still on the pitch. What? I'm very confused now.
90' - Lynch chases down a pass but is too slow and Allen is quickly out of his goal to win the ball nicely
FT - 1-1 - AND IT'S GOING TO PENALTIES!
PENALTIES - So it's celebs vs celebs. No pros involved at this stage
W 1-0 E - Lynch buries it in the top corner
W 1-1 E - Murs scores comfortably
W 1-1 E - Locksmith goes down the middle but hits the crossbar. Advantage England!
W 1-2 E - Mark Wright makes no mistake calmly placing it to his right
W 2-2 E - Serge rolls it into the bottom corner
W 2-2 E - Lee Mack misses for a third year! He tries to go to the bottom right but Oduba reads it and saves well!
W 3-2 E - Dermot Kennedy puts it away nicely
W 3-3 E - James Bay hammers it past Oduba into the top corner. It's sudden death!
W 4-3 E - Cetinay makes no mistake with the pressure on
