I need a canopy for my Toyota Tacoma. What is the best canopy for the cargo bed? I need it to be as secure as possible so I'm looking for no windows. Maybe access from the side if it's secure. Also what do you guys think about adding a slick lock to it? I'm going to be leaving about $8000 of tools in there everyday. Also need it to be water resistant. This is for an electrician working from job to job in a big city.

2023.06.07 07:03 mangoscentedentries Soda Rejuvenation

Hey there! I know the very first rule is to "Keep it relevant" yet I hope you and the mods will take pity on me here, soda didn't quite seem like the place to get a good answer given the only question I could find there about carbonation and recarbonation was months ago and left unsanswered. Unfortunately I also couldn't find a more relevant reddit that wasn't just dead like sodamaking is. Y'all here very much seem to know what you're doing and given this uses carbonation and some similar equipment I hope it's not too unrelated.
Ya see, I recently got my hands on a rare soda from 2012, Johnson City Gold, it's for a very old friend that's big into Mt. Dew. The thing is, unsurprisingly, flat, however. Now I'm looking to rejuvenate it but I'm looking to do it real simple and real easy. That seems at least somewhat doable.
I've done a fair bit of reading and this website gave me a good idea on how to do it; put soda charging cap on bottle of chilled flat soda, use charger to inject new co2, shake and charge bottle a couple more times, let settle then carefully remove lid.
It seems simple enough yet where I'm unsure and want advice on the equipment as I want something smaller and more portable with fewer hoses than the setup the guy on the aforementioned website uses. To this extent I did some looking and came up with the following list of items. This seems to me like all I'll need to recharge the soda and like it'll do the trick without much issue, yet that's why I'm here, I'm not sure if it's all I'll need or if what I've picked out will even work as my "co2 charger." If it's not too much trouble, I'd like advice on whether or not this will work as well as any advice, steps, etc I should know or might be missing.
First off on the list, the Mini Keg Regulator. This has a gauge on it so I know if I'm getting the proper pressure of 40psi according to what I've read, though if you think it's too high or low I would very much like to hear what you have to say. It also takes the co2 cartridges and not the tanks, which is perfect for the small portable and easy that I'm looking for.
Stainless Steel Carbonation Cap, this looks like it's important to be able to stick onto the bottle itself, I'm not sure I need a tube for it or not, other carbonation caps I've seen don't have a barbed thingy which seems to indicate not, yet I definitely want to know one way or the other.
Finally, and I'm pretty sure this is the cartridge and gas I need, the 16g threaded food grade co2 cartridges.
Am I on the right track here? Is this what I need and and all I'll need to put some co2 back into this and perhaps some other sodas in the future? If not or if there's other stuff y'all think I should know I very much want to hear what I'm missing, doing wrong, etc. Again, sorry if this isn't relevant enough for this sub, I hope it's ok but if anyone has a better place for it where I might actually get an educated response like it seems like I will here I'll happily post it there, instead.
Regardless, thank you for your time!

2023.06.07 06:39 dice1899 LFMW Rebuttal, Part 18: The Early Church – Polygamy [C]

Posts in this series (note: link will only work properly in new Reddit): https://www.reddit.com/lds/collection/363e4ce4-8cec-40ad-8ea9-5954cf1fe52d
Sorry for taking so long to get this posted! I’ve been putting in more than 60 hours a week at work lately, and I just didn’t have time to properly research this post.
This week, the topic under discussion is Joseph’s wives and the way that he personally practiced plural marriage. It’s true that some of the circumstances a little unusual compared to how later members practiced it, and it’s also true that sealing practices in general were unusual compared to how we practice them today. The world was also very different in the 1840s than it is today in the 2020s.
All of that means that it can be very difficult for us to understand what was going on and why. I’m going to do my best to break this all down so that it makes sense, but just remember, it’s okay if it makes you uncomfortable. It’s okay if you don’t like the idea of plural marriage. It’s okay if you don’t ever want to practice it. I don’t, either.
But I do have a firm testimony that it was commanded by God. That testimony didn’t just magically appear one day. I had to earn it. I had to get on my knees and pray, and I had to ask Heavenly Father whether He instituted it or not. I had to study the issue and the circumstances surrounding it. More importantly, I had to ask Him to help me understand the reasons why He instituted it.
That’s the only way to really know for yourself.
So, having said that, let’s get into Faulk’s claims.
  • The Women
Due to the secretive nature of Joseph’s affairs, the actual total number of wives Joseph took is unclear. Written records, primary accounts and second hand accounts puts the number between 29-65 women.
They were not affairs, they were sealings. Sixty-five is also a pretty exaggerated number. Most reputable sources put it at around 30-35. And again, remember that sealings are different than marriages, even though we often perform them together today. Many of those sealings were for eternity only, not for both time and eternity the way that sealings are done today. In fact, some of those wives, such as Cordelia Morley and Rachel Ivins Grant, did not have any kind of union with him at all while he was alive, and were sealed to Joseph for the very first time after he was already dead.
One thing to remember is that the sealing power is to seal us all together as one giant family. It’ll be one unbroken chain connecting all of us together. Many of these sealings of Joseph’s were done for that specific reason, to bind families together in the next life. That’s why there were things like adoption sealings, where people would be “adopted” into each other’s families through the sealing process. Siblings were sometimes sealed together. Women who were married to men who were not members of the Church would sometimes to be sealed to righteous Priesthood holders for the next life.
Also, it drives me batty that Faulk keeps repeating that Joseph took wives. None of them were married to him against their will. They all had a choice in the matter.
Most disturbing was the fact that many of these women were already married, much younger and related to each other.
Why is that “most disturbing”? The women were all of legal marriageable age, and there is no evidence of any sexual relations between Joseph and any of the civilly married women, or with any of the youngest wives.
One of the reasons it’s believed that Joseph was sealed to so many women who were already married is because he was trying to satisfy God’s commandment while not hurting Emma. If he was sealing himself to married women, he wouldn’t have to actually marry them and live together as husband and wife. As the Gospel Topics Essay Plural Marriage in Kirtland and Nauvoo says:
These sealings may also be explained by Joseph’s reluctance to enter plural marriage because of the sorrow it would bring to his wife Emma. He may have believed that sealings to married women would comply with the Lord’s command without requiring him to have normal marriage relationships. This could explain why, according to Lorenzo Snow, the angel reprimanded Joseph for having “demurred” on plural marriage even after he had entered into the practice. After this rebuke, according to this interpretation, Joseph returned primarily to sealings with single women.
Joseph’s youngest wife, Helen Mar Kimball Whitney, was sealed to Joseph when she was fourteen. We’ll discuss her in some detail a little later in this post. But that union was done for dynastic/adoptive reasons at her father’s request, to join Heber C. Kimball’s family to Joseph’s in the eternities.
And, believe it or not, some of the women who practiced plural marriage probably found it easier to do so when the other wife was biologically related to them. After all, they already loved them and knew how to live together with them in harmony.
At this point in the LFMW, Faulk posts a small chart taken from Todd Compton’s In Sacred Loneliness. You can find that chart here.
1. Married: Between 8-11 women were married to other men at the time Joseph took them for his wives.
And every single one of them remained married to their husbands after they were sealed to Joseph. That’s because, again, sealings and marriages are not the same thing, and sealings for the next life had no bearing on their marriages in this one. Joseph did not live with these women as husband and wife.
He sent several men on missions for the Church then married their wives, or married their wives in secret and then sent the husbands on missions afterwards.
Many of the husbands in question knew about the sealings and even participated in them. Joseph also did not send the husbands on missions so he could marry their wives in secret.
  • Marinda Nancy Johnson-Hyde-Smith
In September 1831, Joseph and Emma Smith moved in with the Johnson family while Joseph and Sidney Rigdon worked on translating the Bible. While staying with the Johnsons in March, 1832, Joseph Smith was dragged out by a mob and tarred and feathered. Marinda’s brother Eli led the mob because he felt that Joseph had been too intimate with Marinda.
Um. No. Eli Johnson was Marinda’s uncle, not her brother, and he wasn’t the leader of the mob. The mob also didn’t attack him for that reason. Marinda herself said that Joseph had never acted inappropriately while he was staying in her father’s home. This accusation was first introduced during the infamous 1884 Braden-Kelley debate, and repeated by Fawn Brodie, Grant Palmer, and a host of others.
The mob was led by Symonds Ryder and Ezra Booth, because they thought he’d try to steal their property under the Law of Consecration. They’d both already apostatized for various reasons, then led a smear campaign against Joseph and the Church through local newspapers for a while before leading the attack. The only evidence that Eli Johnson was even involved are brief reports that he was the one who provided and heated the tar. According to at least one account, he wasn’t even an active participant, but just left it out for them to use. The mob tried to castrate then murder Joseph and nearly did kill Sidney Rigdon, and were unsuccessful in all attempts.
However, as we all know, Joseph’s infant son tragically died from the effects of the frigid weather that night. Pretty tough bunch of guys, right? Gathering up a violent mob to go murder a baby.
Soon Marinda married apostle Orson Hyde. On April 6, 1840, Orson was sent on a 3 year mission to Jerusalem. Shortly after his departure, Joseph married his wife Nancy Marinda Johnson-Hyde while Orson was gone. In Joseph Smith’s journal, in a list of his marriages he wrote “Apr 42 Marinda Johnson to Joseph Smith.” In 1858 Orson and Marinda separated.
The separation of Orson and Marinda Hyde had nothing to do with her sealing to Joseph, which had happened 15 years earlier. The rest of this is also pretty heavily distorted. Orson Hyde was sent on his mission on April 15, 1840, and returned on December 7, 1842. There are two sealing dates for Joseph and Marinda, making it unclear when it actually happened. It was written down in Joseph’s journal by his scribe Thomas Bullock as taking place in May of 1842. This entry was apparently not recorded until after July 14, 1843, however, and the affidavit Marinda signed stated that the sealing took place in May 1843, after Orson was home.
Regardless of which date is accurate, Orson was not sent on a mission so Joseph could steal his wife if the sealing happened 2-3 years after he left. They were not sealed “shortly after his departure” at all. In fact, even the earliest sealing date is closer to the date he returned than the date he left.
  • Zina Diantha Huntington-Jacobs-Smith-Young
Zina was 18 when her mother died and after went to live in the Smith’s home. Soon she met Joseph’s friend, Henry Jacobs. Joseph was to officiate their wedding, but never showed. Instead, bishop John C. Bennett performed the marriage. Later, Zina asked Joseph why he didn’t show, “He told her it had been made known to him that she was to be his Celestial Wife and he could not give to another one who had been given to him.” (Henry Jacobs, History of Henry Bailey Jacobs)
During Henry and Zina’s marriage, Joseph sent Henry on 8 missions. At one point Joseph sent a message to Zina through her brother Dimick. It read, “Tell Zina I have put it off and put it off until an angel with a drawn sword has stood before me and told me if I did not establish that principle and live it, I would lose my position and my life and the Church could progress no further.” After four proposals and pressured with the responsibility for the life of the prophet, Zina finally accepted. (Brian C. Hales, Mormon Historical Studies 11, no. 2 (Fall 2010): 69–70.)
That last line there is a pretty big exaggeration of what the article actually says. In fact, the article doesn’t talk about Zina Huntington at all. The only place she’s mentioned at all is her inclusion in a chart of the different accounts of the angel with the drawn sword. I’ve included a screenshot of the only three mentions of her from Faulk’s cited source. In fact, it’s actually a paraphrased line from Todd Compton’s In Sacred Loneliness.
Zina, however, clarified that she came to accept the principle through searching the scriptures and praying, and that she received an answer from God that it was from Him. It wasn’t because she felt pressured into it at all.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to pin down exact details when it comes to Zina’s timeline, as there are a lot of discrepancies. When I wrote my response to the CES Letter, I cited liberally from a book titled 4 Zinas: A Story of Mothers and Daughters on the Mormon Frontier. This book used to be housed on the Internet Archive, but has since been taken down. Forgive me that I can’t show exact pages anymore on those citations. Many years after all these events took place, Zina gave testimony saying that she first learned of the principle of plural marriage from Dimick, who had heard it from Joseph. Other sources, seemingly reliant on her diary, say that she learned it from Joseph while she was staying at his home. Some sources say that Joseph proposed to her three times while she was living at his home and that she refused him each time out of respect for Emma. Other sources say she declined to give him an answer and kept putting him off, also out of respect for Emma. Some sources say that Joseph wrote Zina a letter saying he’d been threatened by an angel with a drawn sword, while others say that it was a verbal message passed to her by Dimick, who had been sent to offer her another proposal (even though she was already married to Henry Jacobs at that point). Some sources say that Henry was present for that initial sealing to Joseph, but absent from the other resealing to Joseph for eternity and sealing to Brigham for time. Others say Henry was there for the sealing to Brigham, but are silent on whether he was there for the first sealing to Joseph. Zina said in her later testimony that it was just Joseph, her, and Dimick present at their initial sealing, but that Brigham later resealed them after he returned from a mission to England, meaning that she would have been sealed to Joseph three times in total. However, in signed affidavits collected by the Church, Zina, Dimick, and Dimick’s wife Fanny all verified that Fanny was there at the sealing, too. Etc.
Because of all of this, it’s difficult to know exactly what happened, who was aware of what, and when and how they all became aware of it. However, Zina did say that the Lord had prepared her for the doctrine prior to her hearing it:
I will tell you the facts. I had dreams — I am no dreamer but I had dreams that I could not account for. I know this is the work of the Lord; it was revealed to me, even when young. Things were presented to my mind that I could not account for. When Joseph Smith revealed this order I knew what it meant; the Lord was preparing my mind to receive it.
Additionally, Henry was called on his first mission in May of 1839, before he ever even met Zina. The guy was a prolific missionary who served repeatedly throughout his life. None of those missions overlapped with Joseph’s sealing to Zina.
In fact, according to family tradition, he was present when Joseph told Zina that the reason he hadn’t officiated their wedding is because she was meant to be his plural wife. Henry accepted the news because he was close to Joseph and trusted him. Zina was the one who hadn’t received an answer yet and still had reservations.
After Joseph’s death, Brigham Young also took Zina for his wife while she was still married to Henry Jacobs. Brigham called Henry to serve a mission in England and told him to find another wife. While Henry was in England, Zina began living at the Young house with her children and soon bore a child with Brigham.
Let’s walk through all of this. First, many of Joseph’s sealed wives who were already civilly married to someone else just stayed married to their husbands after his death. They had the choice on whether to re-seal themselves to Joseph or not, and the single wives had the choice of which members of the Twelve they wanted to be sealed to for time. Zina wasn’t forced to leave her marriage to seal herself to Brigham. She chose to do that.
Brigham supposedly told Henry to find another wife, though that can’t be corroborated. He also supposedly had to tell Henry to stop writing love letters to Zina after they were married.
Brigham eventually had several dozen wives and 57 children, in addition to being the leader of the Church and the governor of Utah Territory, owning multiple businesses, and directing the settlement efforts across a very large area. Dude was a busy guy, just saying. Zina did not live with him and did not spent tons of alone time with him. She lived for a time in a separate home with her children, and for a time in a house with several of his other wives. The time she spent alone together with him was sporadic and infrequent.
How would Brigham know that Zina was getting love letters from Henry Jacobs unless she told him? And if she enjoyed receiving those letters, why would she tell him? Why not hide them from him? It would’ve been pretty easy to do so—all she had to do was keep her mouth shut. It’s not like Brigham was snooping through all of his wives’ things in his limited free time. The only reason for her to bring the letters to his attention was if she didn’t like receiving them.
Imagine it from her point of view. You get divorced and move on. You describe that marriage as an unhappy one at several points throughout the rest of your life. You marry someone else and even have a child with them, but your ex keeps contacting you, telling you how much they still love you and still want to be with you. How uncomfortable would that be? It’d be an extremely awkward situation for anyone.
To me, it’s far more likely that Zina went to Brigham and asked him to intervene because it was making her uncomfortable than it is that Brigham found out on his own and flew into a rage and forbade Henry from contacting Zina despite her protestations.
Aside from a very few notable exceptions, most of Brigham’s wives and children spoke of him in glowing terms. Zina herself mentioned his kindness repeatedly.
Henry, meanwhile, was married three more times and all four of his marriages ended in divorce. I don’t know what led to the end of the other three marriages, but I do know that he’s the common denominator in all of those marriages.
It seems clear that Zina left him in what is sometimes called a “folk divorce,” which was a thing in the 19th Century where the man and woman decided to dissolve their marriage and go their separate ways, leaving each of them free to marry again. She chose to marry Brigham for time, and Henry struggled to move on afterward...for a time. Brigham asked him to back off, and he did.
  • Vilate Kimball
Shortly after Heber’s return from England, he was introduced to the doctrine of plural marriage directly through a startling test. He had already sacrificed homes, possessions, friends, relatives, all worldly rewards, peace, and tranquility for the Restoration. Nothing was left to place on the altar save his life, his children, and his wife. Then came the Abrahamic test. Joseph demanded for himself what to Heber was the unthinkable, his Vilate. Totally crushed spiritually and emotionally, Heber touched neither food nor water for three days and three nights and continually sought confirmation and comfort from God. On the evening of the third day, some kind of assurance came, and Heber took Vilate to the upper room of Joseph’s store on Water Street. The Prophet wept at this act of faith, devotion, and obedience. Joseph never intended to take Vilate. It was all a test.” (Heber C. Kimball, Mormon Patriarch and Pioneer by Stanley B. Kimball, p.93)
Yep, because blessings come after the trial of our faith. Heber and Vilate were sealed for time and eternity that same night as a reward for their faithfulness. Theirs was one of the very first sealings of this dispensation.
Teenagers: Ten of Joseph’s wives were teenagers.
Here, Faulk posts another little chart, which I have also linked.
  • Helen Mar Kimball-Smith
Instead of taking Heber C. Kimball’s wife, Vilate, as Joseph had done with others, he married Heber’s 14 year-old daughter, Helen, in May of 1843.
This is presented somewhat disingenuously. Joseph and Helen were sealed two years after Heber and Vilate were sealed. The two incidents are not connected at all. And, as mentioned earlier, Joseph and Helen were sealed at Heber’s urging. He wanted to link his family to Joseph’s in the eternities.
“The youngest was Helen Mar Kimball, daughter of Joseph’s close friends Heber C. and Vilate Murray Kimball, who was sealed to Joseph several months before her 15th birthday.” (Plural Marriage in Kirtland and Nauvoo, LDS.org, Oct. 2014)
In a letter written by Helen Kimball, her father had asked her if she would be willing to be sealed to Joseph Smith, Joseph himself came to her and said,
“If you will take this step, it will ensure your eternal salvation and exaltation & that of your father’s household & all of your kindred.” She talks of her mother’s hidden grief “to see her child, who had scarcely seen her fifteenth summer, following in the same thorny path [of polygamy].” “I would never have been sealed to Joseph had I known it was anything more than ceremony. I was young, and they deceived me, by saying the salvation of our whole family depended on it.” (Helen Mar Kimball, Mormon Polygamy: A History, by LDS Historian Richard S. Van Wagoner, p.53)
Ooh, this is super dishonest framing! The first two lines in quotation marks are indeed taken from an autobiographical letter written by Helen to her children in 1881. The first is from page 482 of a book titled A Woman’s View: Helen Mar Whitney’s Reminiscences of Early Church History, and the second from page 486.
But that third quotation, about how she’d never have been sealed to Joseph if she knew it was anything more than a ceremony? That’s taken from page 19 of an early anti-Mormon pamphlet called Narrative of Some of the Proceedings of the Mormons: Giving an Account of Their Iniquities by Catherine Lewis, published in 1848. She claimed to have heard Helen say this to her mother at some point, though everything in the book is suspect. It’s all pretty badly distorted from reality, which you can see for yourself just by reading it.
Helen herself certainly never backed up its claim. She did admit to being upset as a 15-year-old at being prevented from going out to dances with her friends because of the sealing, so it’s possible she said something like that at one point in her frustration and disappointment. But the circumstances surrounding it are certainly skewed, since Catherine reports it in the context of Helen refusing, after Joseph’s death, to be sealed for time as her father’s plural wife. That surely never happened. And in fact, after a few more years, Helen became a very vocal defender of plural marriage and of Joseph Smith for the rest of her life.
So, I’d take that statement with a very big grain of salt. That Faulk presents it here as if it was a direct quote from Helen’s own letter to her children is repulsive.
Joseph told a reluctant Helen Mar Kimball that if she married him it would ensure her salvation and the salvation of all her family. Imagine the burden on a 14 year old girl’s emotions of the salvation for her entire family riding on accepting Joseph’s proposal.
Except that Helen herself admitted that she didn’t understand what he was trying to teach her, and neither of her parents, who were there at the time of the proposal, understood it that way at all.
  • Nancy Winchester Smith
While records show Nancy was married to Joseph, no dates were written. At the time of Joseph’s death, Nancy was 15 years old. It is possible that, like Helen Mar Kimball, Nancy could have been 14.
It’s not confirmed that Nancy Winchester was a plural wife of Joseph Smith, though evidence leans that way. We also have no idea when that sealing would have taken place, because no records of the sealing exist. We don’t know much about her at all. Her brother Benjamin was a known and rather hostile critic of Joseph’s who never mentioned the fact that they were sealed, so either he didn’t know about it, he didn’t see anything wrong with it (which is highly doubtful), or it never happened and her inclusion on the list was a mistake.
Eliza R. Snow listed her as one of his wives, and so did Orson Whitney, the son of Helen Mar Kimball Whitney. Helen was one of Nancy’s good friends so there’s solid evidence to believe it, but it’s not confirmed.
Unlike what is commonly taught in Sunday school lessons, marriages to young teenagers were not “common in pioneer days.”
Not true, and Faulk’s evidence for this claim doesn’t even say that:
“In 1890, when the U.S. Census Bureau started collecting marriage data, it was recorded that the average age of a first marriage for men was 26 years, and the average age of marriage for women was 22 years.” (http://classroom.synonym.com/agemarriage-us-1800s-23174.html)
Note that this quote says the average age was 22 years old. That means that some women were much older and some were much younger. 1890 is also half a century later than 1840, and society can change a lot in 50 years.
Craig Foster wrote a great article for the Interpreter a few years ago) which demonstrated that in frontier America in the 1800s, females often married quite young, and their husbands were usually older and more settled. It was much less common in the settled cities along the East Coast, but on the frontier (which included Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, and especially Utah), it was relatively common. Men in their 20s-40s marrying teenagers was not unusual.
Even today, it’s legal for teenagers to get married. Let’s not forget that most of Joseph’s teenaged wives were 17-19 years old. Many of us in this church know women who got married at 18 or 19. While they are technically still teenagers, calling them teen brides is implies that they were underage.
The entire concept of “underage” did not exist in the 1800s. In fact, the concept of “teenagers” didn’t even exist back then. You were either a child or an adult, and there was no in-between.
Applying our societal standards to a past society and judging them for their lack of adherence to our norms is a logical fallacy known as “presentism.” I get it—today, it’s unusual and it makes us squirm to hear of girls aged 14-16 getting married. But it was also not out of place in that day and age. And, most importantly, there is no evidence of any sexual activity between Joseph and his youngest wives.
3. Mothers and Daughters: Joseph married a mother and daughter pair.
  • Patty Bartlett Sessions (Mother – already married to David Sessions)
She was sealed to Joseph for eternity while her husband was a faithful member of the Church, and though she and her husband both later received their endowment, they weren’t sealed at that time. She also didn’t re-seal herself to Joseph in the temple after his death the way that many of his other plural wives did. The reasons why are unclear. After her husband’s death, she was sealed for time to another man. Around 1867, after submitting an affidavit concerning her plural marriage to Joseph, she was offered the chance to be re-sealed to Joseph again, though I’m not sure if she accepted or not.
We don’t know the reasons for this sealing, just like we don’t know the reasons behind many of Joseph’s sealings to civilly married women.
  • Sylvia Sessions Lyon (Daughter – already married to Windsor Lyon).
Windsor Lyon was excommunicated from the Church in November of 1842. Joseph and Windsor remained good friends for the rest of Joseph’s life. There are conflicting dates from two unsigned affidavits saying that Sylvia’s sealing to Joseph either took place in early 1842 or early 1843. Brian Hales favors the later date.
If he’s right, this appears to be one of those sealings where Joseph was sealed to a woman whose husband wasn’t (at the time) a faithful member of the Church so that she could still obtain exaltation.
Sylvia bore children with both husbands; three children with Windsor and one with Joseph. (Josephine - February 8, 1844)
No, no, no. She most certainly did not have a child with Joseph. For a long time, it was considered an unproven possibility, but was never definitive. However, even the possibility was ruled out by DNA testing in 2016, seven years ago.
The fact that this is still in the LFMW after all this time caught me by surprise. We know the LFMW has been updated since its first posting, since the original FAIR rebuttal addresses differently worded accusations. There was plenty of time to correct the inaccuracy. In fact, this particular objection appears to have been added to the original text, rather than removed.
4. Pairs of Sisters: Joseph married 3 pairs of sisters.
  • Emily Dow Partridge and Eliza Maria Partridge.
  • Sara Lawrence and Maria Lawrence.
  • Zina Huntington Jacobs and Presidia Huntington Buell.
Yep, he sure did. Zina and Presendia (her name is not Presidia) were both sealed to Joseph for eternity only, with no marriage in this lifetime. But Emily and Eliza Partridge and Sarah and Maria Lawrence were all sealed to Joseph for time and eternity.
Again, though, I’m not sure why this is supposed to be a point of scandal. None of them were married against their will. They all had the choice, and they all agreed to these arrangements. Is it unusual? Sure. It’s weird, I think we can all agree with that. But is it sinful? Nope. When God commands polygamy, it’s not sinful, and levirate marriages have been around for thousands of years. This is somewhat similar to that practice, particularly in the case of Mary and Mercy Fielding and Hyrum Smith. Or, one could argue, between Zina Huntington and Brigham Young.
Remember, when plural marriage was first introduced, they weren’t really given a rule book. There are some directions and guidelines given in D&C 132, but they only cover certain situations. In the Nauvoo days, they were basically winging it. They had to adjust to the new commandment that completely upended their entire lives and then figure out the best way to live it. There was trial and error, heartache, sacrifice, and suffering involved. It was not easy for any of them, and they did the best they could. If they made mistakes, they need our grace, not our judgment.

2023.06.07 02:54 Baiiird Big Soft Light, or: The answer to 90% of the questions on this subreddit

Big Soft Light, or: The answer to 90% of the questions on this subreddit
There's a trend that I've noticed in a lot of the questions on this subreddit - a particular style of image that comes up time and time again in various different guises. You might have seen it asked about
Here Here Also here and here and so on etc
It's obviously a type of lighting a lot of people are interested in, and rightly so - Big soft light makes the clothing look good, creates an uncomplicated environment in terms of posing and movement (no nasty unwanted shadows) and can be used on a wide spectrum of shoots from the very commercial to the very editorial. So, I thought I'd do a write up about not just how to do this sort of lighting, but how to understand this style of lighting, and why all these examples look sort-of-the-same-but-not-the-same.
Base Concept: All of this light comes from the same basic concept of hitting the subject with a lot of diffused light, generally speaking from several directions. Want the light more even, with absolutely no shadows? More directions, more diffused light. Want some shadow or shape to it? Less directions (either fewer lights, or cutting the existing light), or smaller sources. There are multiple ways to achieve this, and a lot depends on your budget, access to studios or spaces and exactly what you're going for.
I am so very, very wealthy, money is no object: Must be nice. Get yourself a very large studio, rent 3-5 12K (or stronger) HMIs and blast them into a bunch of 12'x12' Ultrabounces (Or, depending on the shape of your studio, the walls). One HMI into the roof (or an overhead 20'x20' Ultrabounce). All shadows gone, soft light everywhere. Too soft? Add some black polyboards on the side, some flags on c-stands, a black fabric on the ground, or turn off some of the HMIs. Too frontal? Aim the HMIs higher or shoot them all into the roof. Alternatively if you want it soft, but still with a decent amount of shape, then experiment with a single HMI into a single 12'x12' Ultrabounce.
Something like this - adding or removing polyboards or flags as needed
I have less money, but there's still catering on the job and I have assistants: Instead of ultrabounces we're downgrading to polyboards, and HMIs to flash. Create a half-circle of white polyboards behind the camera (aka The Polysseum) and shoot the heads into them. Much like before, if its feeling too soft then add some black polyboards on the side, floor, or turn off some of the flash heads. If the Polysseum is close to the model/camera, then you may get a light falloff towards the background (in that the background will go darker). If its further away the background will be brighter. Alternatively try a single 12'x12' Ultrabounce with a flash into it for a soft-but-shaped version.
Similar to the above. Can even get away with fewer flash heads. Consider one into the roof if needed too

I've got a studio, but not much else: Single flash head, directly backwards, into a white wall (or a few white polyboards if there's no white wall behind your shooting space). Try to have as much distance from the light to the wall - That'll create more spread on the flash, and therefore as it bounces back a much softer light. You'll probably need to crank your flash near max, or up your ISO quite a bit, as you're not working with a ton of light, but it'll do the job. If its too soft, add a black polyboard(s) on the sides of the subject (or get a friend to hold a big piece of black card beside them). You can also angle either your subject or the flash to create shape - as in, shoot the flash diagonally backwards instead of straight backwards.
I have no studio, no lights, just a camera: Get what you want to shoot against - Perhaps a white paper roll? A half-sized white paper roll? A bedsheet? Set it up opposite the largest window(s) in your house or, if you want a slightly more shaped light, inside a garage with the door open. Experiment with setting it up closer or further away from the window/garage door, as that'll effect the shape of the light. If you want a bit of shadow then angle your subject away from the window/door.
I have no home but still have a camera: Google "Open shade photography" and learn about that concept. Under bridges/awnings, and the opposite-of-the-sunny-side of buildings are going to be your friend. This also covers a lot of the "Big soft light, but location" questions that come up on this subreddit too. Find a wall with an interesting texture, go there when there's no sun on it, presto majesto.
I have no home and also no camera: Visualisation is a powerful skill. Image how you would set up the lights and what the images would look like. Also wander around the city, look at people and think to yourself "if I took a photo of them right now then that light would be nice" and figure out what's making it nice. Good luck with your life circumstances too, I hope they improve.
... and to head off a few questions or comments:
What about lighting the background? All of these styles of lighting involve the soft light having such a long fall-off that your background should be fairly well-lit. If its still too dark then yes, add some light. Bounce a light or two into white polyboards aimed towards the studio background, or use large umbrellas (again, into the studio background).
What about large octaboxes? Aren't they used for soft lighting? They are, that is true. They're not as soft as the styles above, but they can be good. If you want a soft-but-slightly-punchier style then by all means try a large octa, quite close to your subject. Also shout out to my favourite large-soft-light modifier, the 7' Westcott Umbrella with diffusion. Westcott my beloved.
My reference image looks soft all over but there's, like, some "punch" to it, especially on the models face. What is this? Good general concept for you: Any of these techniques you can also use as a base layer, to then work from and shape the light on the face. Take any of these, but expose the image from 1-stop to 1/3rd of a stop under, then add a single light onto the subjects face at either an angle or straight on. Classic modifier would be a small/medium umbrella or a beauty dish, but experiment and see what you like.
What about scrims? Personally I actually use scrims more than ultrabounces for my soft-light images because I prefer slightly harder light which is what scrims (can) give, plus there's a bit more control and nuance to them. Still it's a bit of a muchness - You can swap the ultrabounces with scrims and position the HMIs on the opposite side shooting through. It'll be a fractionally harder light, depending on your intensity of scrim. I suggest ultrabounces for above because there's less to go wrong but hey, live your life.
This is all wrong, I've been shooting for 10+ years and the best technique is shooting a large octra through a full-stop scrim with white polyboards on the opposite side plus a set of 4 umbrellas attached with superclamps on stands to separate the background from the subject plus.... Yes that will also work, as will dozens and dozens of other ways of creating soft light. I've tried to simplify as much as possible with these setups as you can get truly deep in the sauce, and honestly to know how to get the exact type of soft light you want is more a matter of experimentation and putting in the hours on photoshoots (either by assisting or as the photographer). These are, if nothing else, a decent starting place.
I did some/all of these techniques but my images still don't look like my favourite photographer. Why?? This requires a deeper conversation, which could be a total post in and of itself, but oftentimes it comes down to a combination of colour grading, format (i.e film, darkroom printing etc) and the actual contents of the image. Is it really the soft light you like, or is it the $20k worth of styling, world-class model, beautiful printing, nuanced and crafted posing/composition, etc. etc? You very well may have perfectly recreated the light of Harley Weir, but without every other aspect its not going to look like a Harley Weir photograph. Take the very first link above, Re-Edition shot by Adam Peter Johnson. If you had the exact same lighting but with a very commercial model, shot on digital, wearing jeans and a singlet - suddenly you're almost into e-commerce territory. What makes those photos "editorial" is the processing, styling, posing and makeup. Without those, you don't have the photo.
Anyway hope this helps. Feel free to ask questions, add comments or suggestions for other processes, whatever moves everyone forward technically.

2023.06.07 02:13 Tunnelboy77 Mystery issue cam bucket lifter shim

Mystery issue cam bucket lifter shim

Diagram of valve system for this car.
tl;dr Valve bucket lifter shim keeps popping off. Nobody can figure it out.
So nobody has been able to figure out how/why this happens. Toyota 4runner 2006 w V8 2UZ-FE and 70k miles. Was driving about 75 miles away from home when all of the sudden the engine started stuttering and CEL came on. I pulled over and happen to have my scanner with me. It tripped a lot of codes that ended up not being meaningful to this particular problem.
Towed the vehicle back home and checked a bunch of stuff out. I thought the timing belt might have skipped a tooth or two. Anyway, a lot of research later and I found that the #5 valve was stuck open ever so slightly. Pulled off valve covers and finally found the culprit. See diagram above. This engine uses bucket lifters with little shims under the bucket.
I ran it by a bunch of mechanics. Professionals and friends. Most (including myself) thought it was either a bent valve or a broken spring. I removed the camshaft, bucket and shim and pushed down on the valve and it was smooth as poop. No resistance or stickiness whatsoever.
Put everything back together, changed timing belt while I was there and carefully tested clearance between bucket and cam. Moved a few shims around to get every valve to spec. Drove it around perfectly for about 200 miles. Then it did it again!
I decided to pull the heads. It HAD to be a bent valve, or sticky bucket. I brought the heads to a reputable shop and told them specifically to call me when they had it apart as I wanted to see the valve, spring, bucket and bucket bore. I went down there, and all was immaculate. Valve was perfect, everything was perfect. I had them go through with the valve job while it was all disassembled. Got the heads back and have put them on. About 80% done. That's where I'm at now.
Now I'm wondering whether I should just replace the engine. Can't figure this one out.
Does anybody have any thoughts on this?
  1. Valve timing was perfect
  2. Compression test immaculate
  3. Leak down perfect
  4. Valve, spring, bucket lifter, lifter bore perfect
Can't figure out how that shim escaped from the recess of the spring retainer cap. TWICE. Nobdoy else can either. The only thing I entertained is that possibly when that valve opened, some sort of backfire or blowback had the valve open while cam lobe was past the bucket and the shim popped out. Seems hard to believe. First incident was on 50-60mph road. 2nd was city driving.
Me? I went to 3 years of vocational auto tech and 2 years at State University of NY for auto tech. Was a mechanic for a few years and then got into something cleaner. Have done probably a dozen valve jobs, but never a whole engine overhaul.

Reminder About What is Scheduled to Occur by June 30

https://preview.redd.it/pyc1lobzih4b1.png?width=655&format=png&auto=webp&s=04b8396dc4eb47cae37adef78b9b57a8da0094e6
I include the last item (July) because I believe Rick stated the first demo unit(s) would be delivered to the Big 5 starting at the end of June.
It would be prudent to provide the first unit to the one that asked to test it for one month. That way, the results (and possible orders) could be presented on the Aug EC.
Note:
  • W4 CC production: 16 builds/week x 4 weeks x $130,000 ea. = $8.3M/month revenue. (See the Comment in the Catalyst Checklist excerpt above.)
  • If W750 production didn't start till June 1, even 4 builds/week or 16/month, @ $130,000 ea. = $2M/month revenue.
  • So by the Aug EC, whether or not the cash is actually all booked by then, deliveries should be on a $10M PER MONTH REVENUE PACE!!! The Catalyst Checklist shows that 2022 annual revenue was only $3.4M (I hope that is correct). In November 2022, it had been lowered to a range of $5M to $15M, from $15M to $25M.
  • I hope everyone can appreciate the GIANT leap this will be! I am not pumping anything. I am calculating based on what their production was as of May 15 and yes, I am making an assumption that the W750 production started as of June 1 (Q2 per the May EC), and only at 1/4 the production pace of the W4 CC.
  • Remember on one of the video presentations (perhaps Analyst Day), Rick said the Union City plant was going to be "like Toyota" in terms of being able to turn inventory (order materials, land on-site, build the trucks/vans, and send them out the door in an industry leading short amount of time (aka Lean Manufacturing). He has implemented it at other manufacturing plants in his career. It will happen.
  • Note 100% of the W56 parts had been sourced, per the May 15, Q1 EC. That is a BIG deal.
So, until I learn differently, based on FACTS, not historical issues/disappointments etc., I am fully expecting the above results (or very close to them).
I expect the Aug EC to be GREAT! And if any of the Big 5 delivery companies have placed orders and if the Air Force does sign a contract for the first drone, and drone production has started, and Stables & Stalls has been fully converted to EV, it will be a FANTABULOUS EC.
GO WKHS 2023!
