Short men inspiration - athlete edition (147-166 cm / 4'10"-5'5")

2020.09.06 20:17 manowar88 Short men inspiration - athlete edition (147-166 cm / 4'10"-5'5")

I stumbled on the Height in Sports Wikipedia article a while days ago and got curious about other short athletes, since the article is definitely incomplete. I know a lot of guys here are insecure about their height, so I figured I’d share the list I made. I tried to get a good mix of sports, nationalities, ages/time periods, etc. but feel free to mention any I missed and I'll see if I can add them! I've capped it at 2 athletes per sport so we don't just have a bunch of jockeys and gymnasts.

2020.08.24 13:07 AlbertTheAlbatross Do you have drills/games that are non-compliant but are suitable for (non-bogu) beginners?

As the title says. I’d like to incorporate some drills/games into our training that allow our newer members to practise their kendo with a non-compliant partner. I want them to get the feeling of competing with someone without having to wait until they’re ready for jigeiko. I’ve got a couple of ideas so I thought I’d share them here and see if the community has any good ideas I can steal.
Footwork/kihon Races
The classic. If we have the numbers I like to make it a team relay race but individual races work too. You can also do it in pairs, with one person making a target for the other to cut. First group to cover the full room length wins.
Two-Step Men
Motodachi holds their shinai up at men height (or if in bogu, just opens for men). Kakarite can make two steps: one step for distance and one step when attacking men. Motodachi can move as much as they like (but only forward or back) to avoid the attack. As soon as the attack is completed (successful or otherwise), we immediately swap roles, so kakarite becomes motodachi and vice-versa. Therefore motodachi wants to keep themself at a safe distance, but close enough that they can counter-attack when it’s their turn. Either go for a certain time and keep tally of score, or just go until someone can land one strike.
One that’s still in the draft phase, you could let two people borrow a do each and get them to try to prod each other on the mune, so they can work on their kamae and footwork. Still working out the safety aspects of that one though, I don’t want any shinai riding up into people's faces.
Do you do anything that can be applied to non-bogu practitioners to let them compete against each other? I’d love to get some inspiration.

2020.07.19 18:43 AlbertTheAlbatross We've all had to adapt the way we train while COVID does its thing. Are there any changes you'll keep once we're back to normal?

We've been doing park sessions to keep people ticking over and thinking about kendo. A lot of our members have done kendo for a year or less so I wanted to adapt as many of our exercises as possible to make sure they don't forget them, that way when we get back to the dojo there's no time wasted on relearning the sequence of each drill. But I've also found that by breaking them down into a version that can be done in the park, we've allowed the newer members to practise things that I might have considered beyond them if we were still in the dojo.
For example, we've done a couple of oji-waza. Things like kote-nuki-men are easy for our beginners to grasp, and since they're 4m apart there's no risk of anything going wrong. They're still practising big kote and men, but it's in an exciting context and it gets them thinking about en and timing quite early too.
We've also been doing butsukarigeiko, but as a set of suburi instead of a drill with a partner. Again, the physical movements being practised is just men, kote and do suburi but it means that when they're in bogu and we start doing it for real, there's no time spent learning the sequence. We can just focus on using it to improve our kendo.
Are there any COVID adjustments that you're tempted to keep once we're back to normal? If so, what?

07/12/19 – edited post to include references and additional information. See end of post for list of relevant papers and summaries.

I am a kendoka and have an interest in research related to brain trauma and I currently work in a dementia research centre.
I regularly see posts on here about worries to do with brain health and kendo. I'm here to offer my insights and ideas! All thoughts and additional insights welcome :)

 
Extensive research has been underway for the last few decades (especially the last few years) looking at traumatic brain injury and incidences of neuropsychiatric illness, including dementia and CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy). A lot of recent media attention has focused on american football.
But what are the risks in kendo?
1) how much force is required to cause concussion or significant traumatic brain injury?
PAPER 1 gives a great summary on current understanding of concussion biomechanics and mechanism of action.
How much force is required to cause a concussion? There are various values for this, depending on the paper, but from studies on american football players a rough value of at least 50g (g-force) is minimum. Over that risk increases a lot.
Evidence for this = PAPER 2 + PAPER 3 + PAPER 4
2) what type head trauma is worst for producing brain injury and clinically relevant effects?
It's all about sudden changes in skull movement, causing brain to bounce against hard skull. Direct acceleration-deceleration (and resulting cout-contrecoup), and rotational injuries are the worst. These often result from impacts such as car crashes, falls, certain sport or occupational activities. Some of the worst activities for brain wellbeing include: any martial art or activity involving head punching/kicking and risk of knockouts, high speed extreme sports, military, vehicle racing, etc
See PAPER 1+3+4 for more info.
3) do kendo head strikes cause concussion?
Concussion generally = head impact which causes sudden onset temporary amnesia, drop in consciousness, sudden confusion, unsteadiness, black out or new onset neurological sign (ie visual change, eye change, change to feeling or moving body).
Kendo men strikes generally cause TRANSLATIONAL force impact. There is very little skull movement, so my impression is that accel-decel cout-contrecoup injury is minimal. However, without a doubt, some force is going through your brain, causing the brain tissue to jiggle, stretch and contract in various ways.
There are few research papers quantifying kendo striking biomechanics and forces. Of those I have found, one paper (PAPER 6) which reported that across a sample of kendoka, average kendo strike power was 1.6-1.9 Newtons. PAPER 7, testing kendo strikes on crash dummys and human subjects, brings it back to g-force:
…the average resultant acceleration of dummies in this experiment is 10G or less. Even when individual variations are taken into consideration, the maximum resultant acceleration was 40G or less in men attacks and 5G or less in pass actions. Based on the subject data, the average resultant acceleration was estimated to be 15G or less, and the maximum resultant acceleration to be 50G or less.
Generally, it is rare for kendo men hits to cause concussion, and the forces generated are not high enough, typically 5-10g and generally way under 50g. This is, however, provided that the hit is done with good tenouchi, the person is doing a good cut that isn't excessively hard and that you have good posture and head gear when receiving.
SEE PAPERS 5 + 6 + 7
4) is there any risk of brain injury from kendo head strikes?
Regarding skull fracture, there is minimal risk in kendo (unless you have a bone disease)
Regarding brain hemorrhage, again forces are small so risk is minimal, unless you have a bleeding disorder.
Here is where it gets interesting and uncertain.
There's something called "subconcussive hits" which is where the head gets hit, but the person exhibits no signs of concussion. Very little is known about the clinical significance of these and lots of research is underway, but it's early days.
Subconcussive hits are very vague, both in mechanism and intensity of force involved. They include any head impact or sudden change in head direction, as long as there is no sign of concussion. Fall over, knock head on car frame when getting out of car, tackled in a sport, head-banging to music, flip someone in judo etc. Kendo men strikes are subconcussive hits.
Some research papers indicate that high frequency recurrent subconcussive hits over a long time can increase risk of neuropsychiatric symptoms including dementia. This is mostly based on studies in old people, military and athletes with past history of recurrent concussions (ie not subconcussive hits) and studies on sports like american football, and again a lot of subconcussive hits are tackles. There is also some looking at headers in football and some others.
This area is HOTLY DEBATED AMONGST RESEARCH EXPERTS at the moment, but it is worrying and research is ongoing. Some papers indicate that people with recurrent subconcussive hits have the same incidence of dementia as general population, for example, and therefore is not significant.
ANOTHER INTERESTING FINDING FROM RESEARCH
Both concussions and subconcussive hits have been found to cause measurable changes in neural pathways on functional MRI scans and EMG scans post sport with head impact (ie football or boxing). These effects include increased blood flow and glucose metabolism in some areas and less in others, and these are directly measurable changes in brain function resulting from the hits. Also circuitry changes noted in GABA function (a neurotransmitter in the brain). Effects are much worse in concussion and recurrent concussion. From subconcussive it would resolve within 12-24 hours, generally. Players didn't always have noticeable symptoms of these changes.
See PAPER 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 13
5) dude, that's a lot of info... is kendo bad for my brain or not??
We don't know, but the risks are likely to be small.
Keep in mind, risks mentioned above occur in ANY SPORT OR ACTIVITY which causes recurrent head knocks, tackles, body checks or any sudden change in head direction. If you're anxious to minimise brain injury, that leaves you very few options for how to exercise regularly and enjoyably.
Much of the above papers showing significant risk related to subconcussive hits focus on tackles in sports, or punches. The mechanics and forces on the head from these actions are generally much worse than those generated from a kendo head strike. Individual kendo strikes are unlikely to be a significant risk to your brain health. The only possibility of risk comes from the high frequency of head hits in an average class, and these can be offset with good equipment, good technique and good posture.
KEEP IN MIND significant and well-evidenced risks of dementia and brain injury includes and is not limited to: high cholesterol, recurrent concussions, smoking, diabetes, alcohol, inactivity, untreated prolonged depression, social isolation, obesity, poor dental health...
The above are only some modifiable risk factors, but I would argue kendo tackles most of these head-on. Kendo gives you purpose, mastery of a skill, social contacts, cardiovascular workout and can encourage healthy lifestyles. I think all these benefits massively improve physical health and outweigh unknown and uncertain risks of head-hits. And again, it is not known for causing recurrent concussions in people, unlike boxing.
 
SUMMARISE FOR ME, BABY!
EVIDENCE KENDO HEAD HITS MIGHT RISK BRAIN HEALTH + possible evidence that recurrent subconcussive hits over many years might increase risk of neuropsychiatric issues or dementia (although this is hotly debated and research is ongoing and the majority of papers looking at this examine sports with much worse head impact forces compared to kendo head strikes) + any head hit temporarily alters brain function - although this usually is not clinically significant, again, unless we're talking about concussions in which case it is significant. + if someone hits too hard, with bad technique, and your posture is bad and your equipment is rubbish and poorly fitting, then you might rarely be at increased risk of a concussion. Concussions ARE definitely bad for your brain health, we don't want concussions.
EVIDENCE AGAINST KENDO MEN HITS BEING BAD FOR BRAIN HEALTH + dementia rates are not significantly high in japan compared to rest of world. A huge proportion of Japanese population is exposed to kendo at least briefly in school, and this at least hasn't significantly impacted incidence. Granted to prove this we'd need a decent observational study within the kendo population, but I still take some solace from this. + many kendoka practice into 80s and 90s. If a lifetime of kendo caused significant neuropsychiatric issues or significantly increased dementia risk, you would be lucky to see any old practitioners, especially above the age of 80. + kendo hits are usually well under 50g of force (therefore below usual concussion threshold) and what evidence there is indicates men helmets significantly reduce intensity of force applied – kendo hits are unlikely to cause concussion and thanks to technique and armor, are likely to be low on the spectrum of forces of subconcussive hits. + kendo head hit biomechanics are not typical of those which normally cause concussion or significant brain injury. + kendo promotes good cardiovascular and mental health which therefore improves brain health. + armor is designed to minimise force. + weapon is designed to be flexible and therefore safer for sparring. + good technique and posture also improves safety of head hits.
HOW CAN I DO KENDO BUT MINIMISE RISKS? + Develop good technique and posture, when receiving and delivering head strikes. + When buying bogu, I recommend splashing out on a high quality highly protective men from a trusted supplier to supplement a cheaper set - I recommend Kendostar Vanguard or Kendostar Vanguard PRIME. + Make sure your men is a good fit and is worn correctly. + I recommend getting a thick men pad for your helmet. Any extra padding will help reduce forces. + KEEP IN MIND that you may need to ensure the fit of your men is tailored to allow the extra space to fit the men pad above your head in the helmet. + Practice confidence at telling your partner when they are hitting you too hard - if this causes issue, either don't spar with them or talk to your seniors for advice. + WHEN PRACTICING WITH CHILDREN OR YOUNG PEOPLE OR PEOPLE WITH KNOWN BRAIN DISEASES - until they're at least 16, head hits should really only be touches or very light taps. Recurrent head hits in kids is a separate area of research but there are valid concerns here and it's best to be vigilant - be super-light with kids and keep your serious strikes for the adults! + If you notice possible symptoms of concussion (generally - new onset confusion, amnesia, blackout, disorientation, collapse, reduced consciousness or other neurological sign) then stop all activity and go see a doctor. Get advice on when you can return to play. + keep well hydrated before, during and after practice. Get a good nights sleep after practice. + Dojo leaders to consider minimizing head strikes to the minimum required per session, and ensure to include lots of practice of other kote/dou/tsuki waza.
FINAL WORD
I do not have definitive answers and research in this area is ongoing.
But, why do we do kendo?
We all have different reasons. For me, it's very enjoyable being able to practice a martial art with such a rich history, with techniques that can be traced back to 1600 bushi warriors, and be able to pressure test in a safe sparring environment. This not only appeals to me personally, but I also use it to challenge myself and confront fear, as I'm usually someone who lacks confidence and shies away from conflict, so doing a safe but intense full-contact martial art helps me build confidence and courage. Also the social contact, exercise, spiritual journey and journey of mastering a new exciting skill appeals to me.
For me, all my above personal reasons, plus the definitive physical and mental benefits, far outweigh any uncertain, unknown and likely small risks of head injury. All sports and activities have risks and benefits, and I honestly feel the benefits of kendo FAR outweigh the risks.
This is obviously my opinion which is emotional and not wholly based on evidence. You do you and make your own choice :)
Be safe out there!

PAPER 2
Bari et al. Dependence on subconcussive impacts of brain metabolism in collision sport athletes: an MR spectroscopic study. June 2019, Volume 13, Issue 3, pp 735-749
Long term neurological impairments due to repetitive head trauma are a growing concern for collision sport athletes. American Football has the highest rate of reported concussions among male high school athletes, a position held by soccer for female high school athletes. Recent research has shown that subconcussive events experienced by collision sport athletes can be a further significant source of accrued damage. Collision sport athletes experience hundreds of subconcussive events in a single season, and these largely go uninvestigated as they produce no overt clinical symptoms. Continued participation by these seemingly uninjured athletes is hypothesized to increase susceptibility to diagnoseable brain injury. This study paired magnetic resonance spectroscopy with head impact monitoring to quantify the relationship between metabolic changes and head acceleration event characteristics in high school-aged male football and female soccer collision sport athletes. During the period of exposure to subconcussive events, asymptomatic male (football) collision sport athletes exhibited statistically significant changes in concentrations of glutamate+glutamine (Glx) and total choline containing compounds (tCho) in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, and female (soccer) collision sport athletes exhibited changes in glutamate+glutamine (Glx) in primary motor cortex. Neurometabolic alterations observed in football athletes during the second half of the season were found to be significantly associated with the average acceleration per head acceleration events, being best predicted by the accumulation of events exceeding 50 g. These marked deviations in neurometabolism, in the absence of overt symptoms, raise concern about the neural health of adolescent collision-sport athletes and suggest limiting exposure to head acceleration events may help to ameliorate the risk of subsequent cognitive impairment.

Thirteen concussions were recorded ranging in impact magnitudes of 60.51 to 168.71 g. Linear regression showed no significant relationships between impact magnitude (linear or rotational acceleration) or impact location and change scores for symptom severity, postural stability, or neurocognitive function (P > 0.05).
CONCLUSION:
Our findings suggest that football players are concussed by impacts to the head that occur at a wide range of magnitudes and that clinical measures of acute symptom severity, postural stability, and neuropsychological function all appear to be largely independent of impact magnitude and location. Because of the varying magnitudes and locations of impacts resulting in concussion as well as other factors such as the frequency of subconcussive impacts and number of previous concussions, it may be difficult to establish a threshold for concussive injury that can be applied to all football players.

INTRODUCTION—Sport concussion represents the majority of brain injuries occurring in the United States with 1.6 to 3.8 million cases annually. Understanding the biomechanical properties of this injury will support the development of better diagnostics and preventative techniques. METHODS—We monitored all football related head impacts in 78 high school athletes (mean age 16.7 years) from 2005 through 2008 in order to better understand the biomechanical characteristics of concussive impacts. RESULTS—Using the Head Impact Telemetry System (HITS), a total of 54,247 impacts were recorded and 13 concussive episodes captured for analysis. A classification and regression tree (CART) analysis of impacts indicated that rotational acceleration (>5582.3 rad/s2), linear acceleration (>96.1 g), and impact location (front, top, back) yielded the highest predictive value of concussion.
CONCLUSIONS—These threshold values are nearly identical to those reported at the collegiate and professional level. If the HITS were implemented for medical use, sideline personnel can expect to diagnose one of every five athletes with a concussion when the impact exceeds these tolerance levels. Why all athletes did not sustain a concussion when the impacts generated variables in excess of our threshold criteria is not entirely clear, although individual differences between participants may play a role. A similar threshold to concussion in adolescent athletes compared to their collegiate and professional counterparts suggests an equal concussion risk at all levels of play.

Our data clearly indicate that a scalp layer followed by a protective helmet material layer successfully mitigated the peak intensity generated by a kendo strike. However, there are clear indications that the overall energy (power) being transmitted to the target remains the same due to the decrease in peak intensity coinciding with an increase in the duration of the strike. It is probable that the energy is spread across the protective layer which mitigated the peak intensity, yet took longer to completely transmit the energy into the piezoelectric sensor.

2019.10.26 05:48 JoeDwarf Starting kendo FAQ

Note: this FAQ presumes you already know what kendo is and are looking to learn it. For more general information, see the wiki.
Where can I practice kendo?
You can practice kendo at any club that is affiliated with the International Kendo Federation (FIK). The FIK has member federations in many countries, and most of those maintain club lists available through their website. To find the member federation for your country, google “kendo federation” and the name of your country or check the FIK member list. If you are having trouble finding a dojo, post to /kendo, we will be glad to hook you up.
Can I learn from a book or a video?
No, kendo as an activity requires training partners and qualified instructors. Books and video are useful tools for those already in a club.
But there is no club near me/the schedule doesn’t suit me/I’m too shy!
Kendo will have to wait until you are near a club whose schedule suits you and/or you get over your shyness.
I’m out of shape. What should I do to get ready to join kendo?
See your doctor if you are really out of shape, otherwise jump right in. People find all sorts of excuses to put off starting their training. If you wait until you are in ideal condition you will never start. Beginner classes aren’t very strenuous.
I have to wait for the next intake. Is there something I should do to prepare?
Sure, do some general physical training. Cardio is the most important thing: run, bike, swim, whatever you prefer. Please don’t try to practice on your own, you are likely to develop bad habits that your instructor will need to correct. You could do some reading: try This is Kendo or Kendo, the Definitive Guide.
Do I need prior martial arts experience?
No, actually most instructors would prefer that you didn’t have any experience. Kendo is different from almost every other martial art in its stances, postures and movement. If you do have prior experience please put it aside and come to kendo with an open mind. Avoid saying things like “but in Rex Kwan Do we did it this way”.
Am I too old or young to start?
Outside of Japan or Korea most people start as adults. So long as your doctor says you are good for rigorous physical activity you are not too old to start. Many people have started in their 40s or later, and people can practice until well into old age.
Some clubs have rules regarding how young you may start. They may not have the resources or the insurance to teach kids. Generally kids start as young as 5 but are likely to have more success starting at 10 or 12 when their attention span is better.
I’m nervous about doing the wrong thing. Where can I study up on terms and manners?
Don’t worry about it, the instructors will help you. They don’t expect you to know anything off the bat.
How much does it cost?
Training costs vary from nearly free to around $US100/month. Most instructors are volunteers, so the costs are related to the area the club is in. New York City is more expensive to rent space in than Winnipeg.
How much is the gear?
You will only need a shinai (bamboo sword) to start, around $US30. After that you will need the uniform ($US80+), and after a few months practice you will need bogu (armour). Many clubs have sets to lend or rent, but if you must buy bogu, starting price is around $US400. Most beginners opt for a little better quality and spend $500 or $600. The top end of what most people spend is around $1500 but you can spend a lot more than that if you like.
Where can I buy gear?
Hold off buying any gear until you consult with your new club. They will help you select the right sizes and make sure you get good enough quality. They may have gear in stock to sell you, or may have suppliers they prefer or have club deals with. They often will not want you to buy a uniform right away, and most certainly will advise to wait for some time before buying bogu.
What are beginners' classes like?
You can expect to begin by learning basic etiquette: the various bows that are used, how to comport yourself in class, and so forth. For technique, you will start with footwork and basic postures. In some clubs, you may do only footwork for some time. You will learn how to hold the shinai and the basic swing. You will learn the various kinds of practice swings (suburi). Eventually you will move on to hitting targets, first a held shinai and later on a person in armour (called a motodachi).
You will train without armour for a period of anywhere from 3 months to a year, depending on the club's policies and also on your dedication and ability.

2019.09.30 19:50 justintroutman dimedroppers.club (pick-up basketball made easier)

I've been working on a new community-centric project, called Dime Droppers Club (DDC): https://www.dimedroppers.club
Essentially, as the name implies, it's all about assisting recreational ballers, by:
Using dimedroppers.club will always be free. We'll fundraise and generate revenue in ways that improve the experience for ballers, without closing the door with subscription fees or pay-to-play models. We'll partner and collaborate to make the most available.
The beta is on the Craigslist side of minimalism, but the underlying goal is, after all, to get people back out on the court with as little friction as possible, and make the game of basketball a lot more accessible. In its simplest form, you'll be able to find a court anywhere in the U.S. (for now!) and quickly jump into a Slack channel (chat room) for that court, to see, and talk to, anyone else looking to play there. By sending a message, you'll notify everyone in that channel, so they'll know others are interested in playing. (You'll need the Slack app, for now, which is free.) There's a fair amount of work going on behind the scenes to ensure this works well on the community level, so that everyone is getting a consistent experience.
I'll be adding a "suggest a court / see a mistake?" feature in the coming weeks, but feel free to connect with us anytime at [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) (in fact, we love feedback and suggestions; hit us up!). Seriously, if there's something you'd like to see, let us know.
In addition, I'll be announcing some compensated user-testing in the near-near future, so we can nail down which features matter most and which ones we need to add or improve. Of course, the UI/UX will evolve as the browser experience is built out and iOS/Android apps are considered. There will be planned roll-outs in the next month for Oakland, San Francisco, and Charlotte, with many more to follow.
I grew up on the courts, and now I'm taking my daughters (and soon, my son). I remember back in the Charlotte Metro, wearing my Muggsy Bogues sweatshirt, hitting those make-believe game winners until dusk. It's the greatest game, and I'd love to see more people enjoy it, regardless of where they are or what they're schedules are like. Pick-up basketball made easier. No frills. No complexity. No hoops to jump through [sorry, dad joke]. Whatever your level of play, we got you.

2019.09.18 15:17 acerod1 Data Collective Raises a New Fund, Private Equity Under Fire for ‘Surprise Billing,’ and the Rise of Financial Memes: Term Sheet

Data Collective (DCVC), a San Francisco-based venture capital firm, has raised $725 million for its fifth flagship “deep tech” fund. The new fund, DCVC V, will back early-stage startups and reserve some capital to follow on in later rounds. Limited partners include university endowments, global charities, global insurance funds, and pension funds.
The firm also announced several personnel changes: It promoted Kelly Chen to partner, and hired Alan Cohen (formerly of Cisco) and Matt Michelsen (formerly of 8VC) as partners, and Kate Reed as the vice president of marketing.
Established in 2011, DCVC invests in companies “applying deep tech to transform giant industries.” In non-startup speak, this means that the firm backs entrepreneurs who focus on solving highly technical problems (usually involving big data) in sectors such as life sciences, agriculture, security, industrial transformation, and computational healthcare.
DCVC Managing Partner Matt Ocko says raising a fund this size shows that “deep tech can be both massively profitable and equitable.” Just last month, venture firm Lux Capital, which also backs frontier technology companies and often co-invests with DCVC, raised $1 billion across two new funds.
“Another reason for going up in fund size is that deep tech companies’ growth is a little slower and a little longer than a flashy consumer deal,” Ocko told Term Sheet. “The ability to soberly back them as they continue to show great progress actually drives higher returns.”
Ocko made it a point to underscore that DCVC is “most explicitly not a double bottom line fund,” referring to funds that measure their performance in terms of positive social impact. “We are here to drive returns for our LPs,” he added.
DCVC has several satellite startups in its portfolio including Planet Labs, Rocket Lab, and Capella Space. Managing partner Zack Bogue sits on the board of Planet, which uses satellites to capture images of the Earth every day. The company, he says, was instrumental in tracking the fires ravaging the Amazon rainforest.
“Planet provides its imagery to the media, but it also has paying customers in the agriculture industry, in the U.S. and foreign governments, and big technology companies that are interested in mapping,” Bogue said.
Because DCVC wants to back companies that tackle the thorniest of societal problems, the firm has also invested in several physical and digital security companies. “When societies are in distress, you see things like this horrific rash of shootings in the U.S, for example, and acts of terrorism in Europe,” Ocko said. “The problems can be addressed outside the realm of politics and addressed in a way — even whilst profitable — that saves lives and stabilizes societies.”
That’s a tall order given that there have been 38 shootings with three or more fatalities in the United States so far this year. Ocko and Bogue point to Evolv Technology, a company that uses sensors to scan individuals for concealed weapons and explosives in public venues. This immediately raises ethical questions around privacy, facial recognition, and the usage of the collected data.
This is a larger challenge for venture firms and the companies they back. As the pace of innovation accelerates, there are ethical challenges startups will need to address — such as the dehumanization of decision-making and the use of surveillance to collect and analyze mass amounts of data. Ocko says he and his partner look for businesses that are “massively profitable and equitable.”
“We will screw up and accidentally, at some point, invest in a company with the best of intentions that has unforeseen side effects,” Ocko said. “That being said, the way you reduce errors, is to make sure that the notion of equitability is always fulfilled. And that’s really all we can do.”
Read on Fortune.com
SURPRISE BILLING: The bipartisan leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee are launching an investigation into what role private equity firms may play in the problem of patients getting stuck with massive “surprise” medical bills. This “surprise billing” practice isn’t a new phenomenon. It can occur, for example, if a patient goes to a hospital that’s within their insurance network but are treated by a doctor who isn’t.
“We are concerned about the increasing role that private equity firms appear to be playing in physician staffing in our nation’s hospitals, and the potential impact these firms are having on our rising health care costs,” wrote Reps. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.) and Greg Walden (Ore.) in the letters to the private equity firms KKR, Blackstone Group, and Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe.
Doctors and hospitals have been lobbying against the legislation, arguing that it would result in damaging cuts to payments to physicians. Supporters of the legislation argue the physician companies and their private equity owners are simply trying to stop any reform and protect their profits. Read more at Fortune.

2019.07.26 16:04 Ministryofattraction Why some guys never achieve happiness in their dating lives.

Let’s look at it from the stand point of athletes.
Not every athlete was built the same. Some are stronger, taller, faster, have better genetics or are just born with a natural talent.
Others don’t have any of that.
By any standard, everyone knows you need to be tall to be in the NBA.
It’s practically a given.
5 foot 3 (160cms) is short.
Even for society, let alone the NBA!
Muggsy Bogues was that height.
Not only was he in the NBA but he played in the playoffs 5 times.
Kind of crazy when you think about it.
A short player being face to face against some of the greats like Michael Jordan.
Can you imagine the amount of people who laughed at him?
Can you imagine his own self doubt that must have at least crept in from time to time?
Mindset.
That’s the ONLY thing that separates the greatest performers from the ones that never achieve much.
This isn’t only for the NBA.
This can be especially translated into your dating life.
Guys who have a bad mindset, limiting beliefs, doubts, will repel an awesome girl who could have been a fantastic partner.
But if you have the right mindset?
You can literally achieve anything.
You’ll start attracting some amazing women into your life.
Change your mindset and you’ll never need a cheesy line again.

2019.07.05 06:27 sonikku10 Practicing with Children: Courtesy/etiquette when paired up with someone MUCH shorter than you

Last weekend, I attended my first practice in about 10 years. Full bogu. It felt great, but wow, I need to rebuild my stamina as I tapped out at the end of the Beginners class, and just was a spectator for the Advanced class that occurred immediately after.
Anyway, in the club I'm in, we have one or two younger kids that participate with us. I'm not talking about teens/tweens. I'm mean these little guys are probably 5 or 6 years old. So when we're rotating among partners and practicing our strikes, I'm a little confused as to how to go about it. They're less than half my size.
I've only practiced with my old university's kendo club, so you can only imagine what was going through my head at the time. How do you go about receiving/delivering strikes, men, taiatari-hiki-do, etc. when you happen to be paired up with a child?

2018.10.17 12:02 Thracios Additional Tsuki Protection ?

Hello,
In the last France Championships, I was attacked with quite a painful tsuki by my opponent.
On the moment, I hardly felt it and kept going for the rest of the shiai. But, I noticed I had very poor endurance compared to usually. Right after the shiai, I noticed I had a big bruise, and and understood my lack of endurance was related to trouble breathing.
It went away after a few hours, and my opponent did half-heartedly apologize for the careless attacks.
I never had such an issue during keiko, since partners usually care a lot about safety. But, in shiai, the competitive aspect of Kendo kicks in. That may lead to riskier, and more controversial behavior.
That made me think about purchasing additional tsuki protection, for shiai. I'm not interested in massive protections, like neck guards. They are a bit too visible, and I prefer remaining discrete.
I saw that Tozando offers something called the "IBB Safety Guard" that's attached to the Men and does protect ; while Kendostar offers a similar protection that can be attached, and detached to any Men which for me is a major pro - not having to purchase a new men.
IBB Safety Guard : https://www.tozandoshop.com/Tozando-Kendo-Bogu-w-ISG-s/795.htm
Anzen Tsuki Guard : https://kendostar.com/collections/protective-pads-protectors/products/anzen-tsuki-guard
Does anyone have experience with one or both ? Or can recommend something about this ?

2018.09.24 11:34 xotour [Rant] Hrvatska Pošta

Čekam jutros paket iz UK, a RoyalMail-ov partner u RH je Hrvatska Pošta. Naravno, čim sam to vidio pao mi je mrak na oči, budući da mi njihovi poštari svaki puta ostave papirić i pobjegnu bez pokušaja dostave predmeta. Zbog toga sam odlučio stati na kraj njihovim sranjima, i jutros pio kavu na terasi čekajući uhljeba da dođe. I eto ti njega, stavlja papirić i krene pobjeći.
Kada sam ga zapitao hej što radiš, s pogledom kao jelen pred farovima auta, zaprepašten što je uhvaćen na djelu, mi uspije promrmljati "mmm aaa sutra ujutro ću ti ja to donijeti nisam imao mjesta sada donijeti. Zapravo ajde ti sam dođi pokupit u najblizi postanski ured." Znao sam da je "nemam mjesta" laž budući da je prošli put kutijicu s naočalama veličine 2 kutije cigare također samo ostavio papirić i mučki pobjegao. Odlučim mu dati benefit of the doubt jer je izgledao prestrašen za svoj posao, odem na biciklu sam do obližnje pošte u koju me je uputio, počne kiša na pola puta i pokisnem do kože, da bi mi žena za pultom rekla ne možes danas uzeti paket jer on to još nije vratio. Upitam ju kako nije vratio ako mi nije niti ponio dostaviti? Ona ode vidjeti jel tu paket i kaže da ga nema jer je zbog nekog bogu neznanog razloga on završio u poštanskom uredu na drugom kraju grada, unatoč tome što me poštar uputio tu. Nisam se htio s njom prepirati jer je i sama bila začuđena situacijom i očito nije razlog problema, dala mi je broj (vozača? Nisam siguran) na kojeg se naravno niko ne javlja. Riječ je o paketu kojeg sam već platio 100 eura plus dostavu, da bi stvar bila još gora.
Što da iduće učinim? Biste li vi prijavili nesposobnog poštara ili mu oprostili nesposobnost i nemar? Također, svakoj naivnoj duši koja ovo čita a nije nikad imala posla s Hrvatskom Poštom ovo je upozorenje: nemojte. Ako webhop šalje Hrvatskom Poštom bojkotirajte ga i pronađite isti artikl na nekom drugom webshopu, makar platili više.

2018.07.05 08:16 mysticyogini Inventory System for brick & mortar going online

Hi, I run a small local health food store with over 10k skus that we are trying to get online and an inventory system running. Previous management set up Bogue; had a lot of trouble with the people she hired, sunk in over $15k into it.
I stepped into the role and continued with the same people. All of us thought that she just didn't know what she was doing... We have been working hard to get it up and running, in fact hiring two people over the last 8 months to get it done. In the 8 months we have had to restart our data entry twice. We were going along at a good pace the last little while, we bought a magento website to integrate into the POS system which we need with so many products. It's beautiful and almost complete. Today the ownetrainer of the POS informed me that we need to restart our data entry a third time. I basically told him told him that wasn't happening and he needs to solve the problem himself without my staff.
I want to fire him and try to recoup our expenses, including the wages we've spent trying to set up the system if I can. I want to hire a new agency to get us up and running. Its incredibly frustrating that he doesn't just tell us what to do but slowly over time bits and pieces. It shouldn't be this hard. We should not have to redo data entry again and again.
What can I do? What other inventory management systems integrate with Magento? Can I hire another agency to help us set us up using the same system? We need correct training and someone who doesn't hate women or think women are stupid like this guy has made explicitly clear. I already requested to work with the other partner, but was denied as "we are not in his territory".
I am going to research more and see what options I have, possibly speaking to a lawyer about recouping the costs. I'm not sure if we will just have to end up writing this off as an expensive bad decision or not though. Thoughts? Suggestions?

2018.05.08 03:18 MarleyEngvall Up Christopher To Madness (part 2)

by Harlan Ellison and Avram Davidson Big Patsy, sweating copiously, and not from the sun (that Stone that puts the Stars to Flight), either: Big Patsy, we say, observing that there appeared to be not only no pursuit but no indication of public interest in the caterpillar's rapid transit from Rechov MacDougal — save it might be a grumpy moue of, "Cool it, paddys!" from a passing citizen of Nigerian extraction as old 96 tore past at a rapid 38 m.p.h., narrowly missing him — beat his way around the Horn and entered the semi-sacrosanct purlieus of Washington Square. At which juncture he found his intention of losing the caravan in the first cul-de-sac and bespeaking a mechani- cal clarence, or taxi-cab, for Kennedy International, frus- trated by the unforeseen presence of a teeming mob of citizens; all of whom greeted his arrival with loud huzzahs of joy. "Oh, goody, the answering service did manage to get in touch with you!" cried a busty matron in harlequin bifocals and bermudas which, though roomy, were not quite roomy enough. See now The Kerry Pig, tears still wet on his ginger-colored face, hastily avert his eyes. Red Fred groggily clung to the controls. Big Patsy considered swift flight, but the sans-coulottes were all around him, thick as fallen leaves in Vallembrossa or pollen-footed bees on the violet-woven slopes of Mount Hymettus: choose one. (One from Column "A" and two from Column "B" or two from "A and one from "B" — you get egg roll either way.) Squealing merrily, the citi- zens climbed — thronged, rather; swarmed — aboard, dis- playing banners with such strange devices as Save The Village, Hold That (Tammany) Tiger, Destruction Of Landmarks Must Cease, Preserve Low-Rent Housing, Ur- ban Renewers Go Home, and sic c. "Where to?" Fred demanded groggilyer. The question was answered by hundreds of determined holders of the elective franchise as if by one: "To City Hall!" "Awoooo," bawled The Kerry Pig, burying his face in his hands. "Any minute now, any goddam minute now," Big Patsy cried, "Groucho, Harpo and Chico will come through chasing a turkey with croquet mallets. An prob'ly Zeppo and Gummo, too," he added, esoterically. "WHERE TO, GANG!" shouted one of the Seekers of Justice and Retribution, hearkening for the expected an- swer. "CITY HALL! CITY HALL!" it came thundering back from hundreds of sweaty faces. "City Hall?" asked Wallace Fish in a small voice. "City Hall," Red Fred replied resignedly, shrugging his shoulders. "And not to meet Grover Whalen, either," he added, mixed emotions melding mucously in his voice. He headed crosstown with the expression of one who not only has his hand on the throttle, but expects momentarily to be a- scalded to death by steam. As if in a reverie, or waking dream, he automatically drove his train of cars along its familiar route. The perfervid shouts and groans of the passengers fell but faintly on his inner ears. If he failed to aid Big Patsy, Wallace "Gefilte" Fish, and The Kerry Pig in making good their escape from the Constabulary, the three would beyond doubt find an occasion to tread and trample him into the consistency of creole gumbo, even if they had to break stir to do it. And, on the other hand, if he should be taken up by the gendarmerie in this affair, not only did he stand excellent chance of being stood in the stocks with his ears cropped for violating the Idlers' and Gamesters' Accomplices Act III of William and Mary 12 c; but the police — excitable as children, but much stronger — might easily do him a mischief. The best thing might well be to ditch the whole crowd art the first possibility, make for the Barclay Street Ferry, and head West. He could, after all, just as easily take tourists on guided tours of North Beach, Telegraph Hill, and Fisherman's Wharf. The more he thought of this, the more it appealed to him. He hummed a few bars of "Which Side Are You On?" and gave the throttle several more knots. At which point the earth opened (or so it seemed) and swallowed him up. Or down. Amidst the groans and shrieks of the affrighted passen- gers none was louder than that of The Kerry Pig, who found himself spread all over the progressive matron in harlequins, whose too-tight bermudas under stress and strain had popped seams, gores , and gussets all to Hell and gone. A close second, however, in the Terrified Scream Department was the matron herself, who was not only badly hung-up by the sudden come-down, but did not realize that The Pig was as pure in mind, word, and contemplated deed as the Snowe before the Soote hath Smutch'd it; and feared grievously that he would do her a mischief. And whilst the lot of them writhed and roared like Fiends in the Pit, a work crew from the office of the Borough President, which had dug clear across Wooster Street a trench worthy of Flanders Field, mud and all, but had neglected to barricade it properly, gathered round the rim and shook their fists, threatening the abruptly disem- bogued with dark deeds if they did not instantly quit the excavation and cease interfering with the work. "Dig we must!" one of the drudge roustabouts chittered, half in frenzy, half by rote. At first the language of the navvies was sulphurous in the extreme, but on observing that the fosse contained numerous women, none of whom were old, and all of whom were distressed, they became gallant- ly solicitous and reached down large hairy hands to help the ladies out. The men were allowed to emerge as best they might. Red Fred surveyed, aghast, the splintered wreckage of his equipage. And, having seen it all from her place across the street, Aunt Anne De Kalb, a wee wisp of a woman, but with the tensile strength of beryllium steel, hurried across with band-aids, germicides, words of comfort, and buckets of hot nourishing lentil soup. In this mission of mercy she was ably assisted by her barmaids, Ruby and Gladys, both graduates of the Municipal Female Seminary on Eighth and Greenwich, where they had majored in handling ob- streperous bull dykes; and aunt Anne's bouncer, Homer, a quiet sullen homunculus whose very lineament bespoke, not gratified desire, but a refutation of the charge that Piltdown Man was a hoax. In a trice they had jostled away the lewd excavators (eye-intent on garter belts, pudenda and puffies) and were busy with the Florence Nightingale bit. Fred tottered to a telephone in the Ale House to call a garage. He found the instrument pre-empted by Doc Lem Architrave, an unfrocked osteopath, who was vainly trying to impress Bellevue with the urgent need for an ambu- lance. " — fractures, dislocations, and hemorrages," the ex- bone-popper was shouting: "Cheyn-Stokes breathing, cy- anosis, and prolapse of the uteri!". "Yeah, well, like I say," a bored voice on the other end of the line said, "when a machine comes in, which we can spare it, we'll, like, send it out presently. How do you, like, spell 'Wooster'? Is it W-u or W-o-u?" Fred tottered out again. He found that all the victims, their wounds forgot- ten, were now gathered six or seven deep in a circle around Wallace Fish, who was lying on the ground, flat on his back, and drumming his heals. His collar had been ripped open, revealing a throat as reddish-purple, con- gested, and studded with bumps as his face. Big Patsy was trying, so far successfully, to ward off a boss-ditchdigger who, convinced that the afflicted had suffered a crushed trachea, proposed to open a fresh respiratory passage wit a knife the approximate size of a petty officer's cutlass. "He's been poisoned!" cried a voice in the crowd. "Flesh, probably," insisted another yet, a jackhammer operator whose number tattoos peeped coyly through a thicket of hair as black and springy as the contents of an Edwardian sofa. "I hope this will be a lesson to you, fellows, about eating flesh. Now we are vegetarians —" Big Patsy turned control of the putative performer of tracheotomies over to Homer, who held him a la Lascoon, and bent solicitously over his stricken liege-man, who gurgled wordlessly. "It might be something he eat," he admitted. "Wallace has what I mean a very very sensitive stomach and —" A sudden idea transfixed him visibly. He turned his head. "Aunt Annie," he demanded, "what, besides lentils, was in that now hot soup which we all, including Wallace, par- took of so heartily to soothe our jangled nerves?" Fred tried to indicate to him, by winks, shrugs, twitches, and manual semaphore, that he and his two genossen were supposed to be beatniks, names unknown; and that such revelatory references were dangerous and uncalled for, and, in all probability, ultra vires and sub judice. But to no avail. "Why," said Aunt Annie, a shade vexed that her cuisine be called into question; "it was a nice fresh chowder, the specialty for today, with some lovely sweet plum tomatoes, lentils to be sure, a few leeks which I scrubbed them thoroughly and a mere sprinkling of marjoram, fennel, and dill —" "Chowder? What kind of chowder?" "Why, codfish," said Aunt Annie. Big Patsy groaned. The Kerry Pig whimpered, and knelt in prayer. Wallace turned up his eyes, gagged, and drummed his heels once again. 6/8 time. "Codfish. A salt-water fish. And Wallace with his ellegy — Get an ambulance!" the words broke from his chest in an articulate roar. Once again Red Fred trotted for the phone, and once again he was beaten to it by Doc Lem Architrave, whose appearance on the streets so early in the day must be attributed to his having been hauled from his bed at the Mills Hotel peremptorily to do his deft (though alas! illicit) best to relieve the population explosion on behalf of some warm-hearted Village girl who had probably breezed in from New Liverpool, Ohio, only a few months previously; for, had she been around the Village longer, she had known better than to — But enough. Once again the Doc dialed Bellevue, but this time he was answered by a voice as sharply New England as the edge of a halibut knife. "Aiyyuh?" asked the voice. "Ambulance!" yelled Doc Architrave. "Corner Wooster and Bleecker! Emergency case of codfish allergy!" "Codfish allergy?" The voice was electrified. "Well, I snum! Sufferin' much? I presume likely! Ambulance Num- ber Twenty-Three! Corner of Wooster and Bleecker! Cod- fish allergy. Terrible thing!" And, over the phone, the sound of Number Twenty-Three's siren was heard to rise in an hysterical whine and then die off in the distance. In what seemed like a matter of seconds the same sound began to increase (this is called the Doppler effect) and Old 23 came tearing up to the side of the stricken Wallace. treatment was prompt and efficacious and in- volved the use of no sesquipedalian wonderomyacin; a certain number of minims of adrenalin, administered hy- podermically (the public interest — to say nothing of the AMA — forbids our saying exactly how many minims) soon had him right as rain again. He was standing on his feet when Red Fred, alerted by the most osmotic disap- pearance of Doc Lem Architrave, observed that the fuzz had made the scene after all. The carabinieri consisted of, reading them left to right, Captain Cozenage, Patrolman Ottolenghi, Police-Surgeon Anthony Gansevoort, and Sergeants G.C. and V.D. O'Sullivan: the latter being identical twins built along the lines of Sumo wrestlers, commonly, if quizzically, referred to (though never in their presence) as The Cherry Sisters. Red Fred, Big Patsy, Wallace "Gefilte" Fish, and The Kerry Pig, swallowed. He swallowed, we swallowed, they swallowed all four. After a short and pregnant pause, the next voice heard was that of Ottolenghi, "The wicked fleeth,' " he observed, more in sorrow than in wrath, " 'when no man pursu- eth.' " The Kerry Pig, Wallace "Gefilte" Fish, Big Patsy, and Red Fred hung their heads. "Well, you have led us a merry chase," commented Dr. Gansevoort, "haven't they, boys?" Cozenage said, "Ha." Or — to be more precise — "Ha!" Ottolenghi sighed softly. The twins O'Sullivan made, as one man, a deep, dis- gruntled-sounding noise which started somewhere near the sphincter pyloris and thence spread outward and upward; not unlike that made by the Great Barren Land Grizzly when disturbed untimely during the mating season. Eskimo legend to the effect that this creature's love- spasms last nine days is, in all likelihood, grossly exagger- ated. "We heard that you had heard that we were look- ing for you in connection with the sudden death of Angie the Rat," continued the police-surgeon. "But — for some reason —we have been unable to make contact with you to confirm what doubtless reached your ears as a rumor. Namely that, acting on information received from the personal physician of the late Rat, an autopsy was per- formed upon him in addition to the routine excavations required by law. Which revealed beyond a shadow of a doubt that he dropped dead of a heart condition of long-standing, aggravated by the consumption of one doz- en veal-stuffed peppers, two bowls of minestrone, and a pint of malaga, just before he stepped out of the restau- rant to the scene of his death." Again a silence, broken only by the burly jackhammer- man's warning his compeers yet again to avoid the fatal lure of flesh-eating. "Then —" began Big Patsy. "You mean — We didn't — They aren't —" "Yes?" "That is — uh — nobody is what you might call guilty? Of having murdered the Rat, I mean?" The police-surgeon smiled. Nobody at all," he said. "Oh, those bullets you put into him would have caused him a more than momentary inconvenience had he been alive at the time of their entry. But as he had died about half a second before, why —" Big Patsy guffawed. Wallace chuckled. The Kerry Pig tittered. Red Fred sighed happily. "In that case," said Big Patsy, "we three are as free as birds, are we not? The minions of the law have nothing on us." But, oh, he was very, very wrong. See now Captain Cozenage begin to smile like that of a Congo crocodile making ready for the dental attentions of the dik-dik bird. "Inasmuch as the late deceased was dead at the time the bullets struck his inert flesh, the utterers of said bullets — namely you — are thereby guilty of mutilating a corpse. An offense, may I point out to you, under the Body-Snatchers' Act of 1816 as revised, 1818. Take them away, boys," he said. Ottolenghi secured the poor Pig, whilst the Troll Twins each applied a hand, or hands, to the persons of Big Patsy and Wallace "Gefilte" Fish. "All right, you people," said the Captain, as the doors of the pie wagon closed behind Jeans Valjeans I, II, and III, "break it up . . ." Red Fred stood for a moment not daring to move. But, it was soon clear, the cops were not interested in him. Not today, anyway. His reverie was broken by the voice of the matron in harlequin spectacles. "Under the circum- stances," she said, holding her burst bermudas together in a manner not altogether adequate. "I'm afraid our Protest Pilgrimage to City Hall is out. Inasmuch as you have failed to fulfill your contract, verbal as it was, to transport us, no liability lies against us. In other words," she con- cluded, waspishly, "we don't owe you a grumpkin, bus- ter!" And she marched away, wig-wagging steatopygously. The by-now-thoroughly bemused Fred stood and stared. He was free of the local Lubianka, true, but that said, what remained? His only means of livelihood now lay shattered at the bottom of a municipal ditch, and already the ditchdiggers were making coarse suggestions as to what he might do with it. There was nothing else but submission to the extortionate demands of a towing-and- repair service. If, indeed, the poor snailery was not be- yond both. At that moment there was a roaring and a rushing. Braking to a sudden halt were two hot-rods and a dozen motorcycles. Out (and off) climbed a number of young men clad in black-leather jackets with eagles on the back; and with hair trimmed in the manner of the rectal feathers of the order Anatidae. "Oh, no!" groaned Fred. "A rumble! That's all I need!" "Par'm me, sir," said the first young man, "but you got us all wrong." He plucked a piece of pasteboard from the pocket of his black leather jacket and handed it over. THE CAVALIERS Offering gratuitous service to distressed motorists Scarcely had Fred finished perusing the card when the Cavaliers began hoisting his choo-choo out of the slough. Producing tools, they set to work and soon had it deftly repaired, save for a few chips of paint and a broken anterior tentacle, Bellerphonically-speaking. "Well, I'll be doodle-darned," said Fred. The polite young man smiled thinly. "We hope you are satisfied, sir," he said, "with our sincere efforts to assist you. We hope that this gesture and others of the same nature will help counteract an unfortu- nate public impression that we hot-rodders and motorcy- clists are juvenile delinquents, which it's a lie, Pops, I mean like Sir, and if anybody says different we'll cream them, dig?" And with a nod and brief smiles all around, the Cavaliers hopped into the saddles, kicked up power, and were gone with a roar and a cloud of dust. "Well, I'll be doodly-darned," Fred repeated. Then he snapped to. He looked around. There was still quite a sizeable crowd. "Here you are, folks," he chanted. "Step right up. Red Fred's Village Voyages. Guided tours to picturesque, bo- hemian Greenwich Village and The Bowery. A broken heart for every bright light. Take your seats while they last. Step right up . . ."

2017.10.19 18:49 dziban303 6.12: "Hardware partners" camouflages: special camos for nVidia, ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI. Also, new camos for Texas

With the game updated to version 0.6.12(.0.1), I found some new, unmentioned camouflages.
There are two new camos for Texas: One called "Lone Star", which is similar to the existing "Stars and Stripes" flag except it uses the flag of Texas, and another called "Twitch Prime."
A refresher: Standard permanent camo
Stars and Stripes
Lone Star
Twitch Prime
There are additional angles at this album.
There's another scheme, called TGS in the XML, may have something to do with Twitch as well, because the color scheme is similar:
TGS
There's another Twitch skin, camo_twitch_tile01, declared in the XML, but the called texture file, Ship_dazzle_tile_camo_Twitch_tile_camo_25.dds, is not present.
The new "Storm Wind" camo is known as "Navy Day" in the XML, and has been there since at least 6.11.
Bogue in Storm Wind
There's also a scheme in the XML called "Commander Day", which apparently hasn't been used yet.
Bogue in Commander Day
Now, the "hardware partner" camouflage skins:
nVidia
ASUS
Gigabyte
MSI
Album with reverse angles
As you can see, aside from the nVidia scheme, there's not a whole lot to distinguish them. I don't know if the gaming division of these companies all use similar color branding or what—if so, they should try to differentiate themselves from each other. The sameness is not helped by the fact that all four schemes use the same texture file.
