2023.03.21 22:18 HinamizawaVictim Seeking Tips/Advice on how to approach stores when buying Appliances (GTA)

I know there have been various threads on this over the years, but I figured some further insight or advice would be great to have. I've tried to provide as much details as I could think of, but feel free to let me know if anything more is needed.
I'm currently looking to replace the electric stove/range and the dishwasher in my parents' house, based in the GTA.
My questions are not about what brands to select (I've done the research on that, and man is it depressing that most appliances aren't built to last nowadays) but to how to approach the big box and appliance stores (asides from being friendly but firm, and not being a Karen):
Thanks in advance!

2023.03.21 21:58 jfunkyfunk Following the announcement, I have compiled the questions and answers from the Q&A session in the Discord

Following the big announcement, Kuru and the Dev team did a Q&A session regarding the announcement and what it means for the future for the service on their Discord. I have compiled the questions here.
Like ChatGPT?
I don't think NAI owes anyone anything tho? They own the cluster outright, as far as I understand
It's ours to use how we see fit
You gonna restrict the output content to anything?
Where are the cluster being located? Which legal jurisdiction?
US, it's coreweave
Do you plan to make more specialized models for text/image gen than we currently have?
yup models from totally scratch
Will it be comparable in power to GPT3 or 4?
Does that include image models?
How does that damn thing even cost?
a lot :D
Are you focusing on story-telling still, or also AI assistant tasks like GPT does?
We will have a general model that can do both of these things very well
how the fuck, sponsors?
NAI is big, our own money, no investors
how long do we think the training will take? is it going to be available by the second half of 2023? or would an estimate like 2024 be more realistic?
not 2024, it will be fast with the H100s
does Anlatan plan to contribute to Open-source AI research?
we already did before, we do time to time according to what the context is
Is there any rough estimation (can even be off by weeks or months) how long it would take to train a model the size of Krake or the size of GPT-3?
a krake model would take a week or so i think
Which H100s are you using?
we have the SXM5s
Is that training, fine-tuning, or both?
training from scratch
are the H100s just for training or also inference?
Would this mean that NAI can have models bigger than 20b?
better and bigger
Are we gonna see any big subscription price changes upcoming?
We didn't plan anything like that
Will there be any cap or quota per houday when it releases?
Hopefully not? I mean likely not lol. I don't see why we would need that.
The pricing model already seems a bit "the only worthwhile sub tier is Opus" and every other tier just seems to funnel into Opus.
I think we will make all tiers very attractive
What if bots start using your service and spamming requests?
We already do have that happening and have rate limits for bots.
Any plans for bigger models?
Bigger and better models, saying better because training for more data matters more at this size regime than actually scaling up much more
You mentioned not having as much transparency about model training. But will you have a public link to watch a model train live once you've committed to training? Like how the 20b model had a page where you could watch it train live.
probably not?
What does this mean for Sage's dream of the ultimate dungeon experience?
he will have it
Does fp8 training work well for LLMs?
yup, already integrated
Will photorealism be a focus for an image gen model? Or can we be expecting better models catered to what we have now?
planning more photorealism over time more options
They are not using pilev2. they're using their own dataset tuned specifically for their use cases.
Have there been any external pressure from outside groups to encourage you to implement any kind of filtering on generations?
Did you and Eleuther decide to release these news together, or is this just a coincidence?
If you train a new bigger better awesome model - what will you name it?
We didn't decide actually
They are training the models currently.
Curious how that amazing Coreweave deal was negotiated. A lot of AI companies would kill for that kind of deal.
We are very close with coreweave
Will future models be accompanying text generation with relevant image generation for stories?
thats a UI thing
Are you training the new model from scratch? Or off of something like llama
Will the new/future models be under the highest payment tier like Krake? Or will they be available for Scroll and Tablet?
There will be new models for all tiers
Are you also planning on updating TTS as well as in addition to Text/Image gen?
at one point we probably want to but we haven't planned anything
Are you thinking of replacing your current models fully with your own trained ones?
Would the free trial use Euterpe then? Instead of Sigurd?
free trial already uses euterpe
Any idea if the datasets you guys have would train models with a stronger grasp on the details of niche pop-culture universes than GPT-3/4 or whatever is running?
dataset has a bunch of data about pop culture/characters yeah
I understand the lack of transparency in regards to the development of new models, but is there any plans to improve communication in general regarding the service?
We hope to do more showing than talking if we can.
Does this announcement mean NovelAI will be out of beta soon?
idk why we are still in beta honestly so one day
Will you keep the legacy options available?
Okay, so if I'm getting this right, besides new image models, we're getting new text models for AI storytelling?
Are you prioritizing one over the other as of right now?
working on text models right now, but we worked on both
I heard that code in the dataset gives a chain-of-thought abilities to the modell. Is 3% enough for model to have those abilities?
We will see I guess. We have some CoT in the dataset as well
I hope old ones will be not forgotten and updated too?
why would they be updated
Will there be bigger context size?
How expensive will the tiers become?
We didn't plan price changes
Any plans how much it'll increase or is that more a "We'll see what will be worth it" thing?
We'll see but I want to push as much as I can, not giving the full plans here yet
Will this announcement mean any new image models or is the focus going to be primarily on text?
Both, working on text right now.
Will NAI be open to exploring music models in the future?
It's too risky.
I know you mentioned you haven't looked into TTS updates, but hypothetically speaking if you had would you be able to allow us to upload our own voice samples to train or is that too much of a legal minefield?
I would like to not do that.
Due to your partnership with Nvidia will you have a filter?
We are just paying Coreweave for the cluster. We don't have a direct partnership with Nvidia or whatever. It's all funded by us.
Is it possible that the textgen side of NovelAI could have official documentation in the site itself similar to ImageGen?
We are planning to do this.
Textgen is going to get updated... right?
Will custom modules be removed?
Do you all maintain your commitment to privacy for textgen?
Yes please re-read the announcement blog
Will the new models be able to code?
to a degree yeah, but they don't have much code in the dataset
Will we be getting a mobile app soon? Is that still in the plans?
For full NAI? No.
Will the website become more mobile friendly?
Are Krake modules dead because new models?
Krake modules are not dead.
Will the new model be able to do furry stuff better?
I can guarantee this.
I, for one would say that I'm extremely excited at the announcement and can't wait until we can get our hands on what the devs have been cooking.

2023.03.21 21:58 sophia-avon U.S. stocks were up 1% at the beginning of the session. First Republic Bank rallies 36% from new lows

On Tuesday, March 21, the market panic over the banking crisis in Europe and the United States has subsided, the focus back on the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England monetary policy.

U.S. stocks opened collectively higher, the three major indices opened up 1%, an hour later the gains have narrowed, Russell small-cap stocks rose 2% for the second consecutive day intraday.

European and U.S. bank stocks rose, the U.S. First Republic Bank led regional bank stocks by 36%, the stock yesterday's tragic cut and a record low. SPDR regional bank stocks ETF rose nearly 5%. Europe's bank stock index rose more than 4% to lead the broader market, the financial sector rose more than 3%.

Among other banks, UBS rose more than 7%, Westpac Hutchison rose more than 11%, New York Community Bank rose more than 7%, and Credit Suisse rose more than 2%. UBS's European shares extended their gains to 10%.

At the beginning of the session, major sector ETFs rose generally, regional banking ETFs rose over 5%, banking ETFs rose nearly 5%, energy ETFs rose 2.5%. New energy auto stocks are strong, Xiaopeng car rose more than 9%, Azure, Tucson future rose nearly 5%, ideal car rose nearly 4%, Tesla rose more than 3%

China index rose more than 2%, Xiaopeng car rose more than 11% performance, but interesting once fell more than 56%, will be delisted from the Nasdaq:.

Nasdaq Golden Dragon China Index rose more than 2%, the components of Atlas Solar rose more than 12.1% to lead, Xiaopeng car rose more than 11.1%, Meihua International rose more than 9.6%, Azera car rose more than 6.2%, the New Oriental rose more than 6.0%, Century Internet, JinkoSolar, Qinhuai data, ideal car, Lufax, etc. rose at least 5.0%, Aikiya rose more than 4.0%, Ctrip rose 3.6%. Alibaba and Poundland rose 3.2%, B station, Vipshop, Kingsoft Cloud fell up to 1.9%, Tencent Music fell 9.8% worst performance.

Analysis pointed out that U.S. Treasury Secretary Yellen said in a speech before the U.S. stock market, the federal government intends to provide guaranteed support for more small banks' deposits, which effectively boosted risk sentiment. Meanwhile, investors are betting that the Fed's rate hike policy will not be too aggressive, with the probability of a 25 basis point rate hike announced on Wednesday rising to 82% and the probability of no rate hike for the time being falling to 18% from 26%, with no possibility of a 50 basis point rate hike.

The ebb of safe-haven demand and the Fed's seemingly imminent rate hike saw short bond yields in Europe and the U.S. both jump 20 basis points.

Early in the U.S. session, the U.S. 2-year Treasury yield rose 20 basis points to 4.18% and the 10-year base bond yield rose more than 10 basis points. Eurozone benchmark two-year German bond yields rose 24 basis points, the potential for the largest one-day gain since September 2008, the 10-year yield rebounded 17 basis points from a new 13-week low.

Among other assets, COMEX gold futures fell more than 1.6% to a new daily low of $1,950.80 per ounce. The dollar index DXY fell another 0.2% and pushed down to 103.10, a new five-week low. International oil prices rose by more than 2%, with U.S. oil pushing up to $70, and Brewer's oil rising above $75

2023.03.21 21:26 pigeonccatcher SpeedyPaper Review Reddit 2023: My Personal Experience

Short Overview

SpeedyPaper Reddit is a custom essay service & academic mastodon that has helped hundreds of thousands of students get through their papers since 2014. But is SpeedyPaper legit Reddit? A Speedy Paper Company owns the brand and provides a wide range of writing services, including essays, research papers, dissertations, and more. The minimum deadline for an order is 6 hours, and the price per page starts at $9. Their user-friendly website allows customers to place orders and communicate with their writers easily. The customer support team is available 24/7 through live chat, email, and phone. Let's start this SpeedyPaper review Reddit, and I'll tell you more!



My Experience

I recently used SpeedyPaper to help me with a 2-page college article on social media and its impact on mental health. I was impressed by the variety of options available for my order, including choosing my writer and adding extra features like plagiarism reports and abstracts. The writer assigned to my project did an excellent job with my instructions and was able to deliver the article on time.
Here's another reason why I think this is the best writing service. I appreciated the level of research and analysis that went into the piece, and the writer was able to convey their arguments and evidence concisely and engagingly. I communicated with the writer through the messaging system on the website, and they were responsive and helpful throughout the process.
So you no longer need to use "buy essay online" search queries to find good companies. Overall, I had a very positive experience with this academic writing service. The quality of the work exceeded my expectations, and the customer support team was professional and helpful throughout the process. I would recommend this service to other students who need help with their academic assignments.


You will surely enjoy all the student help options offered by this company. But other writing services may be worth considering.

2023.03.21 21:23 throwawaylurker012 Everything Everywhere All At Once: The Citadel Big 3 and how Citadel’s sphere of influence has its fingers stuck not just in the stock market, but the municipal/bond market and sovereign debt/sovereign debt credit default swaps to dangerous degree

Everything Everywhere All At Once: The Citadel Big 3 and how Citadel’s sphere of influence has its fingers stuck not just in the stock market, but the municipal/bond market and sovereign debt/sovereign debt credit default swaps to dangerous degree
TL;DR: Citadel doesn't just have a major outsized influence in the US stock market via its market making firm/hedge fund, but also a major indirect influence via Headlands (biggest municipal bond trading firm made of 3 ex-Citadel employees), and direct influence on sovereign debt (can decide when sovereign credit default swaps pay out) with its seat on the CDDC (Credit Derivatives Determinations Committee).

Hi y’all. Been some while since have been able to post regularly here, so I’m returning alongside my recent post on FHLB with a bit of a “DD". Partial rush job, so all errors are mine and mine alone (obviously)

0. Sphere of Influence

Over the past 84 years (/s), you lovely apes at Superstonk have been able to fish out many of the finer points of corruption crystallized into pure, unadulterated financial terrorism and financial terrorist-level crime undertaken by Steve Cohen (Point 72), Jeff Yass (Susquehanna), Doug Cifu & Vincent Viola (Virtu), as well as Wolverine Trading, Jane Street, TwoSigma, and more. But, of course, much of it has centered on our Mayo-artist-in-residence and his firm, that of none other but Ken Griffin and Citadel.
One of the biggest finds that has come to light has been the complete and utter bullshit of having (1) a hedge fund and (2) owning a market making firm that most DEFINITELY does not use that non-public information to its benefit? I mean, it would be easy for us to check except that we need 5 swipes to even access that level of inner sanctum at Citadel, which–per DLauer’s words–is more than the fucking Pentagon.
But despite Ken Griffin’s reach into every aspect of the most influential stock market in the world, that is not his ONLY level of his sphere of influence. For we, dear apes, can step back and revisit this idea that Citadel’s power duo (its market making firm and hedge fund) is more like a single part of a Big 3.

1. Meet the Big 3

Citadel’s sphere of influence includes not JUST (1) the stock market business, but directly or indirectly, the (2) U.S. municipal and bond markets, plus (3) the sovereign debt/sovereign debt credit default swap markets.

Yes, you heard that right. Citadel not only has some sufficient level of influence to tank your favorite stock–and, in turn–retirement fund, but can also effectively drive your city into the fucking ground, or even your country.

I’ve written about each of these at length, and wanted to revisit some pieces in the wake of our recent dick twitchings of the coming financial crash.

2. Meet the Municipal Bond Market

Citadel has an indirect grip tickling the taint of the municipal bond market, believe it or not. I first wrote about the municipal bond market here (“Headlands: How ex-Mayo mercenaries copy pasted Citadel’s model in the muni bond market”): For those unfamiliar with municipal bonds, I’ll reiterate what they are and why many push them as a safe investment in most times (with some caution being thrown intermittently due to the collapse of regional banks like FRC and Silicon Valley Bank):

“Municipal bonds (or "munis" for short) help towns/cities raise money for projects like building schools, parks, and fixing highways. Many retail investors--admittedly, on the wealthier side--invest in munis for tax incentives like not paying federal tax on bond returns. In certain cases, certain muni buys also mean no state taxes are paid…Just like what had happened to stocks, the old-school market for buying and selling muni bonds is going electronic. This is mainly done through an ATS, or "alternative trading system" known also as a dark pool. This speeds up the process of buying and selling munis, making it closer to a "house auction".
In the wake of the SVB (Silicon Valley Bank), there have already been rumblings of its effect on the municipal bond market (Bloomberg “Bank Woes Create Bond Bargain in Obscure Corner of Muni Market”):

“Investor concerns over the crises within the financial industry are bleeding into a corner of the $4 trillion municipal-bond market where major investment banks guarantee energy for public utilities….
Spreads have widened on so-called prepaid gas bonds, which government agencies use to purchase long-term supplies of natural gas. Large institutional banks act as facilitators of the transactions, guaranteeing the supply and providing investors tax-exempt exposure to bank credit….

3. San Jose, Revisited

That part about “large institutional banks” acting as facilitators of the transactions is what we saw in part in this post by [redacted].
A commenter spoke about this, and how it wasn’t Wells Fargo in doo doo but the city of San Jose.

“I believe in theses cases it’s not Wells Fargo that has a problem but the city of San José.

„Because presentments are currently processed automatically at DTC, IPAs have the option to refuse to pay (“RTP”) for maturing MMI Obligations to protect against the possibility that an IPA may not be able to fund settlement because it has not received funds from the relevant issuer. „ -> Wells Fargo didn’t receive the money from San José city.
Wells Fargo acts as an issuing agent for the city - the city transfers assets to the trustee and the trustee securitizes the assets and offers the money market securities to investors. The assets generate money (for example a sports arena that was build) and that money goes through the city of San José to the trustee who is managed by Wells Fargo.
Wells Fargo has no liability or influence on the money that comes from the city and is distributed to the investors. If the money doesn’t come or isn’t sufficient, the assets are sold or liquidated and used to pay investors.
Anyway: Wells Fargo acts on behalf of the city and is not responsible they just handle securitization but don’t have any influence on payments or failure/default.”

In this case, we might be seeing one of the first of MANY issues of cities up shit’s creek over this.

4. The Municipal Bond Market Time Bomb

The size of the municipal market is A SHIT TON BIGGER than the corporate bond market, which will already show even more signs of being turbo fucked due to borrowing at low interest rates for years. Here’s the size of the municipal bond market for scale, sans banana:
Unfortunately, just like retirement funds, many muni investors are “buy and hold”: they buy a muni expecting a safe, long-term return with no federal income tax and then, welp, shit hits the fan. The market is heavily illiquid too, meaning if shit needs to move, then you might be fucked. Only about 1% of municipal securities trade any given day, in auctions that often take HOURS:

“Now, the primary method of trading on this doesn't look like the New York Stock Exchange or like Nasdaq. It looks like an auction. It takes about 4 hours. An auction is initiated. Participants who come in can bid on this, and it is a competitive auction that yields a very good price.”

Now to my understanding you can’t short these bonds, but the long time frame means its hard to sell these illiquid assets. Not only that, THERE IS NO NATIONAL NBBO (National Best Bid Offer)’re flying blind while this shit happens.

Now if you’re wondering what magnanimous souls are helping municipal bonds be sold or fixed in a timely manner for cities like San Jose, well have I got news for you.

5. Meet Headlands, U.S. Municipal/Bond Market Making Firm…Run by 3 Ex-Citadel Employees

Two months after the sneeze (March 2021), TD Ameritrade bought municipal bond market maker Headlands. Yes, that’s right…an electronic market maker just like Citadel, this time for bonds for cities and towns vs. stocks. Now let’s check the fine fellows that run this:
  • Jason Lehman: Citadel Investment Group, began/ran their global options market making, dipped his dick in Japanese convertible bonds, and managed “Private Investments”
  • Neil Fitzpatrick: Citadel Execution Services COO (Citadel Investment affiliate), ran equities/options. Ex-Knight Capital Group, did Citadel’s OTC and equity shit. Direct Edge board of directors.
  • Matthew Andresen, co-CEO Citadel Derivatives (Citadel Investment affiliate). Previously served on board of directors/committees in the past from International Securities Exchange, Direct Edge, CFTC, Lava Trading (Citi’s electronic trading unit that made LavaFlow)

Of note, Matthew Andresen founded Island, one of the 1st dark pools EVER and 2nd only to “Instinet” (who also got an even bigger wave of funds during the sneeze, info courtesy of Ringing Bells) and was featured heavily in the Scott Patterson book “Dark Pools”.
Ol Matty told us that Headlands is completely automated, and where some muni traders make 75-100 muni bond sales a day (sometimes over the phone), Headlands currently bids on 10,000+ bond auctions a day with its algo. Matty Boi even said if that number ever 10x’d “we wouldn’t notice.” Even more sus, Headlands has been growing its own “holdings” of muni bonds on its books.

6. In Bros We Trust

So remember, this branch of 3 ex-Citadel bros is front and center to the issues already rearing their head. In my previous post, these were just SOME of the already teetering municipal bond issues:

  • Some might have history befall them again: last time the market crashed, Michael Burry’s California went spiraling down to BBB rated for many municipal bonds. California is a special muni case where it generally does well when times are good; much of their revenue is tied to personal income taxes. But when shit goes tits up, it goes tits up.
  • Major projects have tons of debt piling up due to the [March 2020 crash] New Jersey built a giant ass mall–I kid you not--called “The American Dream” over 10+ years that has no sales receipts to cover it in part due to the dropoff in retail buying. As of 2 weeks ago, the mall only had like less than $1000 in the bank to pay off muni debt (“Developer Triple Five Group also sold US$800 million of muni-debt backed by payments they agreed to make to bondholders instead of paying property taxes”)...
  • NYC’s MTA has been getting reamed by both ends. One of the biggest shitstains on its books is that it took out a shit ton of municipal debt and opted to sell $3 billion in bonds to the Fed’s muni lending program to stay afloat
And this issues extends way beyond the U.S.' 50 even affects our territories too.

7. Hurricane

What began this rabbit hole was the one and only welp 0 0 7, who caught wind of some fuckery in the municipal bond market:

In the post, he mentioned how "American Thinker" 's Joseph Lawler mentioned the SEC has been giving fucking STIFF Heismans nonstop (or per [redacted] the ol' Dustin Martin "don't argues" for you Aussie apes!) on FOIA requests (Freedom of Information Act) related to the municipal bond default in Puerto Rico, the BIGGEST bond default in America's history EVER.
It went all the way the way up to a federal court in California where the SEC said "we don't know what you're talking about" when others found they have fucking 2800 pages of documents on it and nearly 270,000(!) emails referencing it referencing a billion dollar Ponzi scheme on the level of fucking Bernie Madoff.
Big banks (Citi, Wells Fargo, BoFa) had their scheme collapse in 2016, potentially bribed senators to kill investigations into it by the DOJ and now the SEC is caught in yet ANOTHER 2 lawsuits saying they fucking aided and abetted this shit.
You see, because this level of municipal bond includes fuckery includes not just cities and towns, but U.S. TERRITORIES. In my post about Hurricane Maria’s effect on Puerto Rico, I talked about how UBS and others loaded up Puerto Rico with debt because of what’s called a “Treasury Put” guarantee that was even called “an exit strategy” for banks (“They describe the "treasury put" as "...the implicit guarantee -- as perceived by investors -- from a government agency to provide support in the event of financial distress by the issuer of Puerto Rican bonds."”).
Puerto Rico’s default was the largest in US history, EVER. And all this the same while guess who was holding the bag? Let’s see what W S O P tells us:

“The reality is that a large percentage of Puerto Rico’s debt is held in tax-free municipal bonds and municipal bond mutual funds, owned not by Wall Street banks or tycoons, but by mom and pop investors seeking tax-free income.”
So once again, whether its retirement funds or municipal bonds, its retail caught holding the bag. And this hasn't changed for years. We’ve seen similar fuckery with bonds for NYC in the 70s, and more recently in the 00s for Detroit.

One astute wrinkle by the name of [redacted] posted this on that original post trying to dig into how it could all be related:

…how the MMLF fund that expanded money/credit to towns/cities started including commercial paper…but also leveraged near the 15 to 1 ratio perhaps under the Net Capital Requirement limit:
[redacted said]: "$500B at 14:1 Leverage? If I'm making the right connection between the flavor of asset, that's just under the 15x Net Capital Requirement limit. Is this all the Fed had/could afford? Or is this all they needed at the time?

8. Don't Bet Against America...Says the Banks and Hedge Funds That Already Did

Commercial Paper? Municipals related? Now where does that sound familiar? Ah, yes…the city of San Jose got its call-out by Wells Fargo over COMMERCIAL PAPER. This comes as the push for ppl into municipal bond markets continues, trying to sell it as a “safe haven” to retail investors. Vanguard just recently launched its first ETF–surprise, its first US-listed ETF in 2 years– for municipal bonds (selling point: “hey everyone it’s tax-exempt! Give us money plz!”) for example:

Many of us can see all of it for what it is. Bullshit. In the wake of the SVB collapse, there is still a strong push that these regional banks–many of which lend to municipalities–will be fine. This “safe haven” theory continues, even as articles try to have them appeal abroad (such as a few days ago, “ ESG Factors of Munis May Attract Non-US Investors” “”)
Even further, one last find is that . I mean it’s not like credit default swaps can be taken on cities and towns in theory right?

FWIW also I found an interesting research paper talking about hedge funds buying up credit default swaps, and how they could potentially bankrupt towns/municipalities through some of these moves if they wanted:
"Another potential concern is that even in a market that is generally liquid, the market for individual single-name [Credit default swap]s may be quite small, which could allow a single bad actor (a hedge fund, for example) to force a municipality into default..."


This is all while we have 3 ex-Citadel heads in charge of just how the municipal bond market moves, like that of San Jose.
So is this where Citadel’s reach stops? Clearly, no. It doesn’t stop at the US border, just like how Mayo Force One doesn’t.

10. ELI5: What’s a Soverign Credit Default Swap?
That’s right, mofos. You read that sub-header right. In case you’re wondering, not only can you take out credit default swaps on a failing Swiss bank like CS, but you can do so ON ENTIRE FUCKING COUNTRIES.
In one of my old posts “Sovereign Debts & Ransom Notes: Pt. 1 The Importance of Being Non-Linearly Destabilized through Sovereign Credit Default Swaps”
(“”), I talked a little more about the insanity of these things even existing.

Sovereign credit default swaps exist. Long story short: sovereign credit default swaps are insurance policies that if a country defaults (usually on its debt)then you get paid! Like many other shit that we’ve seen in the GME saga, they are a form of financial derivative (a bet that something goes up, a bet that something goes down) on an underlying (the thing you’re betting on)....They can be used to insure government debt for a country in case that country is unable to pay its debt, for example. However, just like other instruments, naked sovereign credit default swaps also exist.

Naked sovereign credit default swaps are used to bet that a country or a country's debt will fail without you owning that country's debt. In part, they were destabilising during the Euro-crisis immediately after the 2008 financial crash. Greece was one of the countries that got naked shorted in 2008. In fact, the country got shorted so bad they were worried about fucking SHORT SQUEEZES on Greek debt and the sovereign CDSs!
In 2012, the EU put a ban on naked sovereign credit default swaps. However, workarounds include the fact that a country can effectively change its mind on it within 24 hours and all the regulatory agency can do is offer an opinion.

There were a tons of perhaps “we will see soon” if relevant additional points in that old research, including:

  • The VIX affects sovereign credit default swaps A LOT
  • The Big Bang Protocol: ISDA helped formulate a set of rules that decides when a country “defaults”
  • You can “short” a sovereign bond if you find a locate (sound familiar?: “Short sales of shares and short sales of sovereign debt will be permitted only where the seller has “located” the share or debt instrument prior to entering into the agreement and has a “reasonable expectation” of being able to borrow the shares.”)

Crazy shit. So you might say, now this post is meant to be about Citadel’s sphere of influence you might say? “Where does Citadel fit into all this? ”

11. Meet the CDDC (Credit Derivatives Determination Committee)...Where Citadel Sit and Helps Decide Which Countries Default on their Debt

One of the biggest GFC 2008 scenarios of sovereign credit default swaps being misused was against Greece. Afterwards, one of its biggest cases of misuse was by Elliot Management (ran by Paul Singer) who was using their position on the Credit Derivatives Determination Committee, or CDDC, to help decide when their sovereign credit default swaps against Argentina would pay out.
Wait, Eliot Management doesn’t sound big enough. Who else is on this committee?
Oh wait, so Citadel is ALSO on this committee? Alongside our favorite fucksticks like Chase, Goldman, Deutsche, and BNP?

It’s not lost on me with seeing now that Credit Suisse has been sucked up into UBS, maybe its position on the CDDC has been absorbed further by UBS. Back then, I wrote about the fact is we know next to nothing about the sovereign credit default swaps that might be opened up against countries (be it Russia, Sri Lanka, or otherwise):
Here's one such example of a swap dealer: Swiss financial terrorist aficionados UBS AG, who registered to be a swaps dealer with the US at the end of 2012. (UBS had also been a member of the CDDC through the Greek crisis in early 2012, alongside Citadel. In Mar. 2012, they were also one of the members pressing to ask whether Greece had defaulted already.)
UBS AG registered as a swap dealer in the US at the end of 2012 enabling the continuation of swaps business with US persons. Regulations issued by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) impose substantial new requirements on registered swap dealers for clearing, trade execution, transaction reporting, recordkeeping, risk management and business conduct.
If UBS AG decides to make a market on sovereign credit default swaps like Russia, then we might also have no idea who is on the other side of the trade. This also goes for many of the other swap dealers who (surprise surprise) also sit on the CDDC board and can determine just when these sovereign credit default swaps pay out.

Not only that, but the CDDC even can say when CORPORATE BONDS even shit the bed: late last year, they were the ones who were deciding to let everyone know whether Sunac (an Evergrande-relate company) went tits up.

12. We Say When

For months, there has been talk of a looming debt crisis (alongside all the other ones) in the sovereign debt world.
And shit continues to hit the proverbial fan. Apart from Russia, Sri Lanka and others, emerging markets like Ghana and Zambia are beginning to feel the hits from their sovereign debt (oftentimes, trying to restructure it with creditors like China).

Even further, now that Credit Suisse has gone under. We may have another thing to worry about: what banks and prime brokers are housing these opaque sovereign debt structures, loans, and swaps? Even worse, what happens when they go under? Roll that less than beautiful bean footage:

“Before collapse, Credit Suisse quietly conquered an obscure debt market
Before its rescue by Swiss rival UBS, Credit Suisse had quietly become a major player in an obscure market that purports to help developing countries ease their debt burdens in exchange for protecting nature. Known as debt-for-nature swaps, the complex financial instruments help governments restructure their debt to raise money that can be used to fund conservation efforts.

Credit Suisse was the sole structurer and arranger of the world’s largest debt-for-nature swap, a $364 million deal that it orchestrated in 2021 along with The Nature Conservancy, a charity, for Belize. Last year, it sealed another $150 million deal for Barbados. Credit Suisse has in recent years helped revive interest in the instruments and for the first time opened them up to institutional capital. The bank raised money for Belize and Barbados from pension funds including Sweden’s Alecta and Nuveen LLC, a unit of the US’s TIAA, by issuing so-called blue bonds tied to the deals.
he convoluted setup has drawn criticism from sovereign debt experts for its high cost and lack of transparency. And the opaque terms of the Belize and Barbados deals — the first of their kind — mean outside analysts will struggle to assess precisely what comes next.

A lot of poorer, especially emerging market countries were already in dire straits. Now as opaque deals meant to help these countries might not come to light (are these some of the Level 3 assets that UBS was talking about?), we can ask ourselves wtf will happen when the same banks looking to save their own ass while holding these sovereign, are the same fuckers that sit on the same board that can decide when they are worthless (while I’m sure being positioned net short).

All in all, these banks and holders of sovereign debt credit default swaps, who decide when a country goes boom, are sitting arm in arm alongside Citadel, who themselves potentially hover their greasy mayo-covered finger over the button that decides just when and how the US stock market will eventually implode.

13. Everything Everywhere All at Once

To recap, we then have Citadel with (1) the biggest market maker and arguably one of the most influential hedge fund able to decide which stocks rise and which fall as the US stock market teeters on the brink of collapse…
…with having (2) three of its ex-employees in charge of (not even counting other Citadel employees working there) operating at Headlands ready to help position themselves when the municipal bond market gets nuked, whether as a continued result of regional bank failure or in spite of it…
…while (3) sitting on the board that determines when ENTIRE COUNTRIES FAIL, in such a way that their hedge fund and associated pals can be ready to short and profit off failing nations that they and their fuckstick friends help cause.
Did I miss anything? Because remember, Citadel is not just Citadel, the market-maker that we all love to hate; Citadel’s sphere of influence via the Big 3 means the grip that it holds over the US and world economy is even greater than we think…and as such, far far more dangerous.

2023.03.21 20:36 TimidBookworm Am I being entitled or a Karen for being upset at being scammed, not receiving a book, and being annoyed at my nice landlords?

TLDR: Am I being an entitled person for being upset at being scammed, not receiving a physical booklet from a test prep service, and getting annoyed that the nice landlords are raising the rent price by 15%?
I'm really annoyed right now due to many reasons, but I think people are either thinking I'm a Karen or entitled due to all the shit that happened today.
First off, I'm annoyed at the fact someone used my credit card to purchase $255 worth of shit at Walmart. I know that wasn't me because I didn't go to Walmart today, and because the place it was purchased at is around 1.5-2 hours away from me by bus. I could easily go to one closer than me instead of doing that. Called the bank and they were really understanding, but I kept trying to understand how this could have happened, sorta tested them to make sure they were the bank despite it being listed as the banks official phone number. I understand it's probably just paranoia, but they asked for the one-time code in order to access my account? They never asked me before so that sort of scared me. I think I might have also irritated them because I kept asking if I could have access to my bank statements since I need a bank statement for a proof of purchase that I must send to the government by April 14 or else I would be in legal trouble.
Second thing, I paid for a prep test course for one test that costs about $70. I'm annoyed because they stated they won't provide a phsyical copy anymore like they did before since the person tutoring the course does not use it but follows his own course. The person tutoring it is great, but the physical copy is also extremely useful. FURTHERMORE, the electronic PDF they send is protected so you cannot save it as a PDF to be used or written on unless you go into their website to access it or type in your credentials. I get they do that in order to ensure it's not handed out to people, but this annoys me because they will delete all materials taught after the semester is over, so you would never be able to see it again. So when I asked for the physical book, they told me they won't be providing it despite them having the means to make it and the physical book/resources is technically included in the $70 price since it was always $70 for the tutoring with the book. They're doing this just to save on costs. What irritated me the most was that they wanted me to send proof of an IEP or learning plan in order for me to get accomodations (because I stated I require a physical copy since due to my condition it makes it harder for me to learn). I felt that was overstepping the boundaries especially since those things shouldn't be needed for a service that should have provided the book to begin with since it was included in the cost. I sent them proof of a learning difficulty but because it was a government form, I could only send a bit of it because the rest had extremely sensitive information such as my SIN number. We had this back and forth for about 5-6 days and they finally gave out the request in order to get a copy printed which I would need to pick up. That's fine, I'm willing to do so, BUT THEY SENT THE FUCKING ORDER TO THE PRODUCTION COMPANY AND NOT TO THE INDEPENDENT STORE!!! This would cause the order to take anywhere from 2-7 days to be avaialbe for pickup. My fucking test is in less than 3 days from now! And they make it seem like I'm exaggeratting when I say it could arrive in 5-7 days. EVEN IF IT ARRIVES IN 2 DAYS I'D STILL BE IN DIRE STRAITS.
Another thing I'm starting to get really annoyed at is my landlord. They're nice people and they do there best to help us out if we ever ask for it, but it's getting to me that they keep raising the prices of the house and have such strict rules that does not make sense. The price we pay is already considered above what people pay currently in our area per month. Even moreso the fact that they have really strict rules, which I'm okay with, but they have really weird criterias such as make sure there isn't a lot of shoes in the front door entrance. I get that it gets crowded from time to time, but most of us only have 2-4 pairs of shoes that we use constantly. It's a house with 7 people, and the only time it truly gets crowded is when guests are over. They also don't want us to share the wifi password, but we're students who study and have friends or classmates who come over and study together or work on projects. Anyways, the rent has been increased by 15% and we've only been living here for a year. They are legally allowed to do this, but come on, we're students in a housing crisis and with a lot of student debt to pay for. I worked during the summer before with the exact same rent price I'm currently paying for. That was a 40 hour per week job at minimum wage and the rent easily took away 30-40% of what I was making in order to pay for rent. Keep in mind, I am now a full time student with approximately 26 hours per week of classes, lectures, tutorials, and labs that I attend. There is no way for me to make that money for rent and food. And I get that the house is newly renovated, but they geniunely upcharged the rent price by a lot, plus they own several properties that they either rent out or sell to earn money and have their own company. It just feel it's really disheartening to have to pay for an increased rent price when the housing prices should be going down after the pandemic crisis is adverted.
However, please tell me if I'm just being entitled or what I should do to be a better person. I have BPD so I have times when I can be pretty irrational and paranoid.

2023.03.21 20:31 Original-Emotion-149 Looking for a portable 2-in-1 with good battery life for a CS degree (UK)

No explicit budget but aiming for as low as possible (currently looking at under 800 GBP).
Yes, but only if the performance is considerably better than a new machine of a similar price.
Need a 2-in-1 for note taking with a screen size of 13 - 14” and at least 16GB of ram, definitely nothing 15” or over. From there I would prioritise:
  1. Battery Life (ideally would last all day, at least multiple note-taking lectures and a lab per day)
  2. Performance (want something snappy that can handle VSCode, MATLAB, Office Suite, multiple Chrome tabs with ease, light gaming would be a plus but not a deal breaker without)
  3. Size/Weight/Fan Noise/Ports (want USB-C charging and decent port selection i.e. HDMI 2.0, USB-A and C, low fan noise and small form factor but these aren’t deal breakers)
  4. Display (better display tech like higher resolution and OLED would be nice but not at the expense of battery life)
Important but at 13-14”, I don’t imagine any modern (non-gaming) laptop would be that bulky.
13-14”, nothing over 15”.
Perhaps light Photoshop/Blender use, nothing extensive.
Gaming is not a priority but if it could run emulators up to Cemu/older titles at 60 that would definitely be a plus but non-essential.
Willing to forgo extra bells and whistles for price.
Looking for a laptop for note taking and coding during CS lectures and labs. Lots of maths lectures so need pen input which is why I’ve specified a 2-in-1. I have other more powerful devices for gaming and other resource intensive tasks and better screens for media consumption so don’t need that here but would be willing to pay a premium for a dGPU if battery life weren’t compromised.
Currently looking at 2 decent candidates under £800, both supposed to have good battery life and decent performance but I’m unsure how to pick between them. My options are the Lenovo Yoga 6 13 with a Ryzen 5 7530U/len101y0027) for £720 and a HP Envy x360 13 with an i7-1250U for £765. They both have 16GB of ram and 512GB SSDs. I think the AMD processor is noticeably better but the iGPU is considerably worse. Both supposedly have great battery life for Windows machines but the Envy has a bigger battery and I’m unsure which would last longer in a real world scenario. The Lenovo is cheaper, but not by much so that’s not much of a factor to me and the Envy comes with an extended 3 year warranty. If anyone can help me compare these 2 or suggest an alternative, that would be much appreciated. I don’t need a laptop right away, so if there’s anything worth waiting for, I’m open to that too.

2023.03.21 20:21 geliebean Hair and make up etiquette

So I’m finally looking into hair and make up. I really don’t know what’s good pricing for that. The one person I reached out to would be $800 for me to do hair and makeup trial as well as hair and makeup on my wedding day. Then it would be $240 per bridesmaid for both hair and makeup. Do these seem like they’re a bit high? Or are these about average for a HCOL area?
Also, I plan on paying for mine and the bridesmaids HMU. My fiancé and I discussed paying for both of our moms. BUT I will also have my 2 sisters and 17 year old niece (none of them are in the wedding party) in the room getting ready with us. My niece will only be a guest, and we are letting my sisters walk up the aisle with the family before the wedding party. Do you think I should pay for my sisters HMU? Or just offer it to them and they can pay if they’d like? I don’t really want to since they’re not in the wedding/haven’t/won’t do much for the wedding. But my fiancé says we should be classy and pay for them lol. What are all of your thoughts?

2023.03.21 19:58 AbsolutusVirtus [Giveaway] GIVEAWAY BNIB 126334 Datejust 41 with the Blue Motif Dial, Fluted Bezel and Jubilee Bracelet

Item Name: GIVEAWAY BNIB 126334 Datejust 41 with the Blue Motif Dial, Fluted Bezel and Jubilee Bracelet
Price: $Sub Fund minus ModCut
# of Spots: A Billion
Price Justification: F
Price Justification: R
Price Justification: O
Price Justification: T
Call spots? Y/N
Spot limit per person? 0
Location/Country: USA
Will ship international? USA/CA/INTL (Shipping rules will apply)
Escrow: Numba 1 escrow running this!
Description: Watch.
  1. The giveaway will be open for ONE full day until 5PM tomorrow. There will be no tags for this raffle. It will end officially at 5PM on the second day, any requests thereafter will be ignored.
  2. If you participated in any month from March through August 2022, you are eligible to request spots up to six random spots total (that’s if you participated in all SIX months). With a TOP LEVEL COMMENT you may request up to six random spots and post the permalinks to YOUR PAID spot request links (one link from EACH month). You may submit ONLY ONE LINK PER MONTH. Given how large this is going to be, we HIGHLY suggest you visit the last giveaway here, to see how to do this correctly. Find your paid spot request permalinks beforehand and make sure you know the exact dates of your participation because Reddit has fooled many users. Freebie participation does not count. Spots in cancelled raffles do not count. Spots that were removed for non-payment certainly does not count. We will not allow donating your spot to anyone else for this giveaway. YOU MUST POST YOUR REQUEST AND LINKS IN ONE SINGLE TOP-LEVEL COMMENT. Given how large this is, we will ignore additional comments from any user who attempt to add additional months. The number of months you posted originally will be the maximum number of spots you will be eligible for.
  3. If you are caught calling a spot with an alt or try to cheat in any way or form, you will be perma-banned immediately with no exceptions. Do NOT send modmail to get whitelisted or upgraded during this period. And do not send modmail or reply to us asking why you were skipped and pooped. You should have read the rules in advance. Any such messages will be immediately archived.
  4. Not following the rules will result in one poop. Examples that will get you one poop flair: request a spot without a link, post a link to the wrong month, post links from the same month, post a link to the raffle itself (and not your specific spot request), post a comment underneath your first error with links, or delete/edit your spot request. Any of these will result in one poop flair. If you commit another error afterwards, that will be a second poop (and immediate 1-week ban if 2nd poop, or 1-month ban if it results in 3rd poop and your request will not be honored for the giveaway). If you already had a poop flair that has not expired and you incur an infraction during this giveaway, you will be banned accordingly and you will not be allowed to participate in this giveaway. If you are skipped, that means you made an error and you will receive a poop flair.
  5. HOW TO FIX YOUR ERROR: Make a NEW top level comment if you want to try again. But if you make another error at this point, this will result in a ban and your request will be ignored for the giveaway and you will not be allowed to participate in this giveaway.
  6. Once the raffle window closes, all slots will be SHUFFLED and the bot called for ONE winner. The winner will send modmail with their info. It takes a lot of effort on the part of several mods to check all the links to make sure that they link to your paid spot request to completed raffles and that the dates correspond to the correct months. If you send PMs or chats to any mods or send modmail during the giveaway period asking what you did wrong, why you were pooped, or why you were skipped, they will all be ignored. Do not reply to the mod team comments stating you were skipped and pooped asking why, and you should not reply beneath with the correct links. You should have done your homework by reading the rules carefully and following them. LEARN HOW TO READ AND HOW TO POST CORRECT LINKS BEFOREHAND.

2023.03.21 19:49 Glopuss Supermarket (Coles & Woolworths) specials March 22 - 28 (incomplete)

A selection of items “on special” this week in Coles and Woolworths that may be of interest to keto followers. Many are processed so not really suitable for “clean keto”. Victorian data, some may not be available interstate. Consider house brands may be cheaper than ‘specials’
Alcohol (except no carb beer) excluded. Drink prices exclude recycling deposits. Fruit & Veg probably vary by state, so excluded.
If you are doing an online order, I suggest you also look at the stores' ONLINE ONLY specials as I don't always include all of these, many are multibuys.
Coles ‘locked prices’ might now be considered specials but same every week til April so not included as specials


Coles web pages are a mess, prices showing as a special in the List function are not showing as specials when you drill down into details. So some of these prices cannot be trusted. To make matters worse, they have now taken down the old pages.


Woolies has a range of health products @ 30% off, I have put some under the Protein heading for convenience.
Woolworths is “printed catalog only” as their web pages have not been updated by 6am. I may try again later in the day.

2023.03.21 19:41 sairamsnehal In-kind vs $ payout math

Hi Guys,
This discussion has been going on for a while and I wanted to utterly simplify this to see if my understanding is correct here. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Assumptions for simplification
- Lets assume there were 100 guys with 1 eth each on celcius
- on day of bankruptcy each eth was $100 ($PB)
- On day of Payout each eth was still $100 ($PP)
-Mashitsky has lost half (%LST) of all eth. So we have 50 eth left. So our goal is to get our .5 ETH back per person. We assume and understand that there is no way to get more than .5 Eth back.
-lets leave out legal fees, newco shares etc.
-leave out any tax implications, opportunity cost etc.

Lets' say we are at Payout day :) (after all this hell):
Scenario 1: Now if Eth is same price ($100 $PP) on day of payout, assuming there are still 50 eth left. Then each gets $50 back. Basically half of their portfolio. They can take these $s and go buy their half Eth back, essentially losing 1/2 eth, which is the end goal.
Scenario 2: If price of ETH($PP) goes is up to 200$ (100% or 2X $PB) at time of bankruptcy then estate now has 50Eth X 200$ = 10000$. So each get 100$ back and you can go back and buy your half eth.
Scenario 3: But if ETH appreciates to 400$. Then we get our 100$ back but we can only afford .25 ETH, essentially creating an opportunity cost/loss.
So the key variable here are
- price of eth at bankruptcy ($PB)
-Price of eth at Payout ($PP)
-How much Mashitsky lost (%LST)
Not sure how to write the exact formula(someone can help me) but as long as
((2X $PP % increase from $PB) < %LST) then cash vs in-kind payout does't matter. Since we can take the cash and go buy the crypto back. It is when the crypto appreciates much more in % than %lst is when we need in-kind.
Hope this makes sense. In essence $PB, $PP and %LST are the variables that define if in-kind vs cash payout matters.

2023.03.21 19:39 Gaming_N_Whiskey Bardstown Trip Recap

We regularly see posts in bourbon asking for Bourbon Trail trip recommendations. My wife and I just returned from a trip to Bardstown, and I wanted to offer you guys some feedback on our experiences. Hopefully you will find them useful for planning your own trip to Bardstown.
First, a very special "thank you" to u/Old_Riff_502 . Old Riff always posts very useful information in the forums. I also privately messaged him and I was amazed with the amount advice that he provided on the area. I don't think we would have had nearly as a excellent of a trip had it not been for him. Thank you again!
Hotel: We stayed at the La Quinta Inn & Suites from Wednesday evening until Sunday morning. The hotel was new, clean, and offered free breakfast every day (although we never actually ate it). The hotel is easy to get in and out of. It seemed like we were only a five minute drive away from anywhere we were trying to go. However, it's not very centrally located. You're not walking anywhere important from the hotel. The other knock on the hotel (and this seems more just industry standard these days), is that we never had anyone come in to do a room refresh at all during our trip. Nobody took out the trash, refreshed room coffee, or soaps/shampoos. That being said, I would not mind staying here again at all!
Distilleries (listed in order or preference):
Restaurants/Food (listed in order or preference):
Overall: We had a wonderful trip. We really enjoyed our time at Bardstown. Old Riff and the advice he provides on this forum is invaluable! Listen to this dude. There was a couple that hired a driver one day and we saw them at four of their five stops (the only thing they did that we didn't was they did a chocolate pairing at Lux Row). They paid $900 for their chauffeured experience! Ours basically cost us the price of admission plus a few hours poking around on Reddit's boards and distillery websites.
A few tips for those considering a visit to Bardstown:
Anyway, that's all I've got! If you're planning on visiting Bardstown anytime soon, I'm genuinely envious. It's a wonderful place. Thanks for reading!
