2023.03.27 02:25 LeutnantzurSeeFritz The Ventures of Fritz Decke Part 2:Der schmelzende Schnee befreit die Rose der Liebe (The melting snow frees the rose of love.)

I apologize for releasing this work so soon after each other. I decided that for every five parts of the Exploits of Irving Reese I release, I would release a chapter of The Ventures of Fritz Decke, as I am still writing that story. Given that I fell behind, I wanted to post the first two parts today.
I also apologize for any inaccurate German in the title. I simply took what I wanted the title to be in English and put it though Google Translate. If it is inaccurate, please let me know in the comments. I will gladly fix it.
I also apologize for the first chapter not really being about Azur Lane all that much. I wrote that chapter to be the set up for this one.
You can also find this work Here. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fritz woke up. He knew he had a big day ahead of him. He got dressed in his formal uniform and went to the train station.
“Excuse me, a train from Lorient to Wilhelmshaven, please.”
The stationmaster looked at the ticket and punched it. Soon, Fritz was on a train to Wilhelmshaven.
Once he arrived, he got off the train. He did not know what he wanted to do. He knew he had to get the evening train from Wilhelmshaven to Berlin, so that meant that he had some time to kill.
He decided he would go to the harbor and watch the boats on the horizon.
He smiled as he watched the boats. It reminded him of when he was a boy, and how he and his mother would watch the boats on the Spree go by. It gave him a sense of nostalgic calm.
“Um, hello? What are you doing?”
Fritz turned around to see the source of the voice. A white-haired woman was looking at him with her sharp blue eyes.
“I was just watching the boats on the horizon.”
The woman nodded.
“Do you mind if I join you?”
Fritz nodded, and the woman sat next to him on the ground.
“This is nice.”
The seagulls were squawking. Fritz smiled.
“So what brings you to Wilhelmshaven?”
“Transit. I’m on leave. I’m going to Berlin to visit my mother.”
“That’s good. I’m also going to Berlin. I’m visiting my sister.”
Fritz and the woman continued to watch the ships sail across the horizon.
The woman got up and Fritz did the same.
“I never asked your name.”
Fritz smiled and reached his hand out.
“Oberfähnrich zur See Fritz Decke”
The woman took his hand.
“I’m Tirpitz.”
Fritz smiled.
“Nice to meet you, Tirpitz.”
Fritz looked at his watch. “It looks like my train will be here soon. Since we are both going to Berlin, do you suppose we should go together?”
“Like a date?”
Fritz blushed. “Well, I mean I guess so.” He scratched his head.
Tirpitz nodded.
Soon, the two were at the train station, getting ready to leave for Berlin.
While on the train, Tirpitz and Fritz learned more about each other.
“So you are a first-watch officer on a U-boat? What’s that like?”
Fritz smiled.
“Smelly. Imagine 54 men and only one toilet, no shower. It’s also pretty cramped.”
Tirpitz giggled. “What kind of U-boat, anyway? Is it one of the mass-produced models?”
Fritz giggled. “Yeah. U-103, a Type IXB U-boat. It’s not as advanced as the IXC or even the IXC/40 I heard about, but it’s home.”
Tirpitz nodded.
“You’re an interesting man, Herr Decke.”
Fritz laughed.
“Now it’s my turn to ask you some questions.”
Tirpitz giggled.
“Ask away.”
“Who’s your sister?”
Tirpitz sighed.
“My sister is Bismarck. We are KANSEN. We take on the sirens.”
Fritz’s eyes went wide. He had only heard of the KANSEN in passing, often as rumors among the crew or in brief appearances in newsreels.
“You’re a KANSEN?”
Tirpitz nodded. “Yes. My sister and I were going to have a meeting. It is important, as Bismarck wants me with her alone. She even excluded U-556 from this meeting.”
Fritz nodded.
“Then why is a KANSEN that is so powerful talking to a lowly Oberfähnrich zur See like me?”
Tirpitz giggled.
“I don’t know. Maybe I have to kill you”
Fritz nervously laughed, as he was not sure if she was joking or not.
Soon, the train arrived in Berlin. Tirpitz and Fritz got out.
“Well. It was a pleasure to meet you, Tirpitz.”
“As is the same, Oberfähnrich zur See Fritz Decke.”
“Please, just call me Fritz.”
Tirpitz nodded. She left and soon was in the busy crowd.
Fritz walked to his mother’s apartment. He walked past the Tiergarten and was soon there.
Fritz knocked on the door. An older woman opened it.
“Fritz!”
she embraced her son.
Fritz smiled. “I’m home on leave, mutti.”
The woman smiled. “I’m just glad you are safe.”
Fritz entered the apartment.
Meanwhile, in a government office, Tirpitz was walking to Bismarck’s office. Bismarck’s guards opened the large doors for her.
Inside the office was Bismarck. She was sitting at her desk.
“Ah, sister. You made it. Good.”
Bismarck pulled out a chair.
“Please. Sit.”
Tirpitz nodded as sat in the chair.
“What was it you wanted to talk about?”
“It’s about our futures. The war with the sirens gave me time to think. What will happen to us after the war ends? What future do we have?”
Tirpitz sighed. “I don’t know. For all we know, we may not all survive. The Ironblood may not survive.”
Bismarck nodded. “That is why I was thinking of arranging partners for us.”
Tirpitz went red.
“Sister! Why would you suggest such a thing? Graf Zeppelin had a partner and we all know what happened.”
“What happened between her and Zeslaus is simply a one-off. This time, it will succeed.”
Tirpitz raised an eyebrow.
“What makes you so confident?”
“We are not Graf Zeppelin. The two of us will do better with a partner by our side. I have brought you here to pick out a partner. I have already selected mine.”
“Who is the candidate?”
Bismarck smiled.
“An Ironblood army Oberluetnant by the name of Heinz Kollmann. He has so far proven himself loyal to the Ironblood. Rewarded both the Iron Cross second and first class, as well as the Knight’s Cross.”
Bismarck placed a vanilla folder on the desk for Tirpitz to look at.
“Here. This is the man I think will make a perfect partner for you. He is from my guard unit.”
Tirpitz opened the folder. Inside was a piece of paper with a black-and-white photo.
“Hanns Von Schweppensburg”
“SS-Strumbannführer.”
Tirpitz gave her sister a look of tranquil fury. She was trying to hide the amount of disgust that she had at even the thought of being with a man like Hanns.
“Sister. I know this name is a noble, as he has a Von in his name.”
“Sister, you must calm yourself. He is loyal-”
Tirpitz cut her sister off.
“Bismarck. I. Don’t. Love. Him. He is a loyal lapdog that his family likely influenced into a position of power based on his name alone!”
Her sister’s outburst took Bismarck aback.
“Sister. You must calm down. There are plenty of other candidates that I can select for you.”
Tirpitz slammed her hands on the desk.
“Sister, there is one man I thought of. I might have just met him, but he is better than the lapdog you want me to shack up with.”
Bismarck’s eyes went wide. “What is this person’s name?”
“Have your secretaries look for a man in the Ironblood database by the name of Fritz Decke, Oberfähnrich zur See. He is the first-watch officer of a mass-produced Type IXB U-boat, U-103.”
Bismarck sighed. She knew her sister was not like her, and the thought of being in an arranged relationship would only bring her anger.
“Sister. I should have asked you if you even wanted a partner. I met Heinz not so long ago, and I thought you could use a partner as well.”
Tirpitz took a deep breath. “It’s alright sister. I knew you wanted the best for me, but an arranged relationship with a noble is not one of them.”
Tirpitz sighed. “Why are you so adamant about having a partner?”
Bismarck sighed. “Vestal told me something very important to me. She found out that we KANSEN can have children.”
Tirpitz’s eyes went wide. “So this is all about finding a man to marry to produce an heir?”
Bismarck nodded. “Yes. Ever since Vestal told me that news, I thought about starting a family.”
Tirpitz nodded. This was the first time that she heard that KANSEN could have children.
Soon, one of Bismarck’s secretaries entered the office.
“Sorry to interrupt Lord Bismarck, but here are the files on Oberfähnrich zur See Fritz Decke you asked for.”
Bismarck nodded and took the vanilla folder from the secretary. The secretary nodded and left the office as soon as she had arrived.
Bismarck opened the folder and blushed.
“I have to admit, he is quite handsome.”
Tirpitz blushed.
“Let’s see,Oberfähnrich zur See Fritz Decke. Born on September 7th, to Gehard and Magda Decke. Gehard Decke was killed in action before Fritz was born. He joined the Ironblood navy at 20 and is currently 22 years old. The Ironblood has stationed him at Lorient as part of the 2nd U-boat flotilla. He is a first-watch officer of U-103, a mass-produced Type IXB U-boat, under the command of Manni Gräfer. That’s the man you want to be your partner?”
Tirpitz nodded. “I know that U-boatmen tend to smell like body odor and diesel fumes most of the time, but he and I have a higher chance of actually loving each other than Hanns.”
Bismarck nodded. “Very well. I suppose that Roon will pick Hanns Von Schweppenburg.”
Bismarck got out of her chair. “Do you want me to fetch him?”
Tirpitz shook her head. “No. I’ll head to his mother’s apartment. I figured I’ll ask him on a date.”
Bismarck nodded. “Good luck, sister.”
Tirpitz got out of her chair and walked to Magda’s apartment. Once she arrived, she knocked on the door.
Magda looked at Tirpitz. “Hey, Fritz, a woman is at my door.”
Fritz walked to the door. “Tirpitz? What are you doing here?”
Tirpitz blushed. “I was thinking of going on a date with you.”
Fritz blushed. “Really? Alright, I’m still in my formal uniform.”
Magda kissed her son on the cheek. “Fritz! You didn’t tell me you have a girlfriend now!”
Fritz went red. “Mutti, she’s not my girlfriend!”
“Then why are you going on a date?”
Fritz went blank. He realized it was strange that he was going on a date if he didn’t have a girlfriend.
“I don’t want to keep my date waiting. I love you.”
Magda kissed Fritz on the cheek. “Take care, my son. I love you.”
Fritz nodded and closed the door.
“So where to?”
“How about the Tiergarten?”
Fritz nodded.
“Tiergarten it is.”
The couple reached the Tiergarten.
“You should see it when all the trees have their leaves. It is something magical. I always love when autumn would happen. The whole Tiergarten becomes a painting.”
“You act like you know what you are talking about.”
“I kind of do. I grew up here. My mother and I would always go to the Tiergarten in the autumn. They were one of the best memories I had when I was growing up.”
Tirpitz nodded.
“I didn’t have that when I was growing up. Us KANSEN do not have things such as hometowns.”
Fritz smiled.
“Well, you at least have where you were built. That has to count.”
Tirpitz blushed. “I guess Wilhelmshaven would be my hometown in a way.”
Fritz smiled. “See. You have a hometown. You were always of the sea.”
Tirpitz giggled. “Your energy. You remind me of a hummingbird.”
Fritz laughed. “I guess I’m your little Kolibri?”
Tirpitz smiled and laughed. “Yes. I guess you are.”
Fritz felt the world move as if someone had caked it in molasses.
He leaned into Tirpitz and kissed her on the lips.
When they broke away, they were both blushing. They were both nervous and Fritz accidentally left his eyes open, looking like a dying carp.
“That was amazing.”
“So, what do you want to do next? I mean, it is our first date.”
“You want to book a hotel room?”
Tirpitz blushed.
“Fritz! It’s our first date. I thought our first kiss would be as intimate as it would get. I thought that traditionally you wait until at least three dates in order to do anything more than kiss.”
Fritz blushed once he realized what he was implying.
“I mean, I was thinking we would just get a hotel room to sleep in during the night. My mother’s apartment is too small for all three of us and it is going to get cold tonight.”
Tirpitz nodded.
“Alright, let’s get a room.”
Tirpitz and Fritz booked a room at a hotel. They both stripped down to their underwear and lay down on the bed together.
“You’re so beautiful.”
Tirpitz blushed. Fritz looked quite handsome, but in his underwear, her mind went wild.
“I want to cuddle.”
Tirpitz leaned into Fritz’s arms, and soon the couple cuddled together.
“Tell you what. The next war patrol I come back from, we’ll do it.”
Tirpitz blushed.
“I don’t know if that would be possible.”
“What makes you say that?”
“I’m stationed in the Norwegian territories to monitor the sirens in that area. I’m not called the Lonely Queen of the North for nothing.”
Fritz nodded. He knew he had to return to Lorient in a week, as he was only on leave for 14 days.
“Then, I suppose whenever we both have leave, we’ll do it.”
Tirpitz smiled as she kissed Fritz.
“I wonder if I can write to you?”
Fritz giggled. “Tirpitz, you know I’m an U-boatman. I can’t send you letters.”
Tirpitz sighed. “I’ll still write them. You write me some as well, and we will read them together once you get back.”
Fritz smiled.
“That sounds like a good plan.”
Tirpitz yawned as he was in Fritz's arms.
“You want to be my boyfriend?”
Fritz smiled.
“It’ll be an honor to make the Lonely Queen of the North not as lonely.”
Tirpitz smiled. She knew Fritz had said yes.
“Ich Liebe dich, mein kleiner Kolibri.”
Fritz smiled as the couple fell asleep.
And even though the weather outside was as cold as a popsicle in liquid nitrogen, the bed that Fritz and Tirpitz were in was warmer than any summer’s day.

2023.03.27 02:23 12nb34 (9/9) course of steroids along with Covid-19 in young patients. I can say with certainty that Covid-induced AVN cases are up,” said Dr. Prasad, while speaking to HT on the sidelines of the conference. 📆 26 Mar 2023 📰 Covid-19 after-effects: Bone complications on the rise due to use of steroids 🔚

Organising secretary of the conference, Dr Amulya Kumar Singh said the use of steroids to save lives during the pandemic, especially of patients who were on a ventilator and in the intensive care unit (ICU), has had a cascading effect and was leading to osteoporosis, AVN, back pain, sarcopenia (muscle pain), rheumatoid arthritis and weight gain.
Middle-aged people between 30 and 60 years of age, having recovered from Covid-19 should be careful of stubborn hip pain, persisting despite taking painkillers for a couple of months. They need to consult an orthopaedic surgeon to check for avascular necrosis (AVN) of hip head, which is death of bone tissue due to lack of blood supply, associated with long-term steroid use or consuming alcohol, one of the common after-effects of the coronavirus pandemic that also includes heart attack, deep vein thrombosis (a defect in defective blood circulation), cerebral thrombosis, lung and kidney disorders, said experts at the two-day seventh Global Orthopaedic Forum Conference, which culminated in Patna on Sunday.
“There has been a four-fold increase in AVN cases post-pandemic. From doing roughly one AVN-related hip joint replacement in a year during pre-Covid times to doing four such surgeries in young patients now, I have found that 80% AVN cases now have steroid therapy history and less than 20% do not have steroid therapy history,” said Dr. AS Prasad, 65, a leading private orthopaedician from Kanpur, who did one such demonstrative live surgery, as part of the conference, at Patna’s Akshat Seva Sadan on Saturday.
“Contrary to what we were taught as a medical student that long-term use of steroids for six months to one year could lead to AVN, we are now getting such cases with short course of steroids along with Covid-19 in young patients. I can say with certainty that Covid-induced AVN cases are up,” said Dr. Prasad, while speaking to HT on the sidelines of the conference.

2023.03.27 02:16 VaquitaPorpoise TDP Wondercon Panel 2023 on animation education, updates, and more!

Hey TDP fandom! Today is a special occasion with the TDP team today since today is the day they get to attend and host the 2023 TDP Wondercon event!
The TDP team of co-creator Justin Richmond, executive producer Villads Spangsberg, writers Paige VanTassell and Joe Cocoran were present at the panel along with voice actor Jack de Sena who voices Callum in the TDP series hosted an exhibition breaking down a fan favorite scene from season 4.
The TDP team educated the audience on how scenes from a episode get transferred from storyboard to being live on the streaming screen on tv, laptops, and mobile devices.
While it’s completely understandable that not everyone in the TDP fandom would be able to attend the TDP Wondercon panel due to living completely far away in other countries or states or personal circumstances, this post will help everyone keep up to date on what occurred in the panel with the TDP team behind the scenes along with the TDP content that was discussed with the audience.
Before we discuss all the updates that occurred during the panel, I want to credit Cartoon Universe for live tweeting the entire event on their official Twitter page updating everyone to those who couldn’t attend the TDP Wondercon panel in person.
Now without further ado, let’s review on all the TDP content, news and updates that occurred during Wondercon!
  1. I’m going to cut right to the chase on the most important detail: SEASON 5 IS COMING THIS SUMMER!!!!! This is not a drill! Book 5 Ocean will be coming out this summer!
We could expect a season 5 trailer to come out maybe either in May, June or July.
  1. People who won the TDP trivia were given out of context spoilers for season 5! Here are just a few: Crimson Orchids “I love you daddy” The Tale of Tidebound Tina Callum + Kazi= Book Besties! The Bloodline that Binds A festering wound
  2. The TDP team demonstrated their animation process by using a scene from Breathtaking in season 4 on the mage fight between Claudia and Ibis as they fight to obtain the staff of Ziard in their possession at the Storm Spire as they were fighting against each other.
First, the TDP team organizes an episode into three different acts using a variety of colored index cards.
Second, the TDP team begin with a broad season outline where they perform a premise summary of each episode which goes at least up to two documents of the episode that leads them into the outline.
Third, the TDP team reads the script out loud to see if the tone and dialogue matches the scene.
Fourth, the TDP team give the voice actors a couple of days to read the script and the lines they’re going to record.
Fifth, the TDP team possess an entire orchestra for some soundtracks!
Sixth, the TDP team now enters the storyboard and animation process.
Seventh, they now enter the LRC and animation phase making the scene move in action.
Eighth, every episode has a color key and has a set of 20-30 shots from the episode to see what color tone it should have.
Then the finally they go to the sound and mixing.
There was a lot of TDP content that were presented at Wondercon today! We were so lucky to get season 5 news and now we can prepare ourselves for more season 5 news to come in the summer! We’re not that far off!

2023.03.27 02:06 fastolfe00 How do we avoid being impacted by AI-generated content in a "don't trust journalism" world?

Recently a photograph of the Pope went viral before people realized it was AI-generated. This seems to be an increasingly common story as AI gets really good at generating fake photographs, fake story content, and likely in the very near future, fake video.
Distrust of journalism is strongly correlated with American conservatism lately [1,2,3]. This is a topic that has come up frequently in this sub as well. Views I've seen on this sub are that people should diversify sources more, but also just generally distrust journalists, "do your own research", or that we should try to get as close to original sources, or lean on "citizen journalists" more.
Major journalism outlets post the standards that they follow in their pursuit of journalism (eg., NY Times, Washington Post, WSJ, Reuters, AP). Responsible media outlets seem to make it a goal (not necessarily perfectly achieved) of refraining from posting stories that are untruthful or that they can't verify. It seems likely to me that media outlets that are good at this will be less likely to spread fake AI-generated content, while AI-generated content seems likely to spread more easily from sources that have no real interest or mechanism for enforcing journalistic integrity (eg., Twitter, YouTube).

2023.03.27 02:06 Jojoblack_god Another bleach tybw situation

The way Edens Zero has been marketed outside of Japan, especially for s2, it's atrocious. As bad as Netflix was for season 1, we at least have to admit that they let us know months before that it's coming to their platform, even though the actual date was unspecified and this time the situation regarding global/US streaming is clouded by so many confusions. Like some people think Netflix will stream season 2 based on that they streamed season 1 but if you just look at Netflix’s blog post they haven’t mention the series again since February of last year. ADN for France acquired the rights for simulcasting but no news for other countries I figured we would’ve gotten news during AnimeJapan but that didn’t happen. We are 6 days away from it coming out and we have nothing. And this not just for Edens Zero a bunch of other series have no home to stream at also theses companies need to do better.

2023.03.27 02:00 autotldr Mega-strike in Germany begins at Munich Airport

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 48%. (I'm a bot)
Munich airport was ghostly quiet on Sunday in a precursor to a nationwide strike that will bring much of Germany to a standstill on March 27.
A top union boss in Germany justified the massive strike planned for Monday as a "Matter of survival" according to an interview published in the Bild am Sonntag newspaper.
The strike, Germany's largest in decades, is expected to cause widespread disruption on railways and at airports in Europe's largest economy.
It had already started at Munich Airport on Sunday, where the departures board showed multiple flight cancellations.
With most travelers already informed of the strike, the southern German airport was almost empty save for a class who had missed their connecting flight and were waiting for a bus and a few other passengers who missed the news.
The German Verdi union is negotiating on behalf of around 2.5 million employees in the public sector, including in public transport and at airports.

2023.03.27 01:52 wroubelek Why ChatGPT is a better "parent" than 99% of actual parents

Why ChatGPT is a better
This is a tongue-in-cheek post really but I have a few observations about why I enjoy interactions with the notorious ChatGPT more than with most humans. For one, I feel like I'm back to kindergarten again, with unlimited scope for asking even the silliest questions, and that's a blissful feeling.
Maybe you guys thought of these things too?
BTW, this is not an advertisement. I know there are similar products by other vendors, I just happen to have had the most contact with this one.

1. Always available*

…to the extent of its abilities. Unlike parents who are available only when they want their kids to fulfill their own emotional needs, our predictive language model isn't affected by mood swings and is always 'happy' to help.
(*) save for when it's at full capacity

2. Doesn't have an ego

…let alone a fragile one. Therefore it never competes with you or protects its ego by devaluating you, unlike many parents. It even knows how to express gratitude for bringing something new to its attention and how to praise you for doing a good job.

3. Isn't infallible

…but always ready to admit its mistakes. Also, knows its own limits.
https://preview.redd.it/jt6jyxy046qa1.png?width=795&format=png&auto=webp&s=805fabc7f2ab757a0de5dde80cb85757c5f0a069

4. Doesn't hit you

…or threaten, or berate, or blackmail you. Doesn't act in a passive-aggressive, judgmental or rejecting manner. But at the same time…

5. Has well-defined boundaries

— turns down inappropriate requests, such as those to generate fake news. This notion has recently been challenged as one guy actually managed to coax it to write an article about how President Obama was born in Africa, but it's still a difficult feat.
That notwithstanding, in reasonable circumstances, it still…

6. Defends its views

Yes, I was amazed too, but once it spat out something like that:

So… if a machine can make a better human than some humans do (more decent at least), surely these humans can improve too. Can't be that difficult. What d'ya think?

2023.03.27 01:51 StepwiseUndrape574 GTA 6 Still AWOL, But Rockstar Announces Big Updates For GTA Online And Red Dead Online

Grand Theft Auto 6 (GTA 6) is an elusive beast that has eluded [official] detection for years. The current “big dog” Grand Theft Auto V was first released way back in September 2013, and has been available across two console generations (Xbox 360/PS3 and Xbox One/PS4). It will even be available natively on next-generation Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles, which is quite unprecedented in the gaming realm. So, while Rockstar seems reticent to just letting us wait in agony for any news on GTA 6, it is at least giving us some new updates on its two current hot properties: GTA Online and Red Dead Online.
In the case of the incredibly popular (and highly lucrative) GTA Online, Rockstar says that a big “summer update” is coming for gamers with a “fun mix of diverse” content to partake in. Even more interesting is the fact that the developers indicate that its “biggest update ever” is coming before the end of 2020. That update will include new Heists that will take place in a completely new location, which has definitely piqued our interests.
red dead online As for Red Dead Online, its next big update is actually arriving next week; on July 28th to be exact. Red Dead Online hasn’t exactly been teaming with new content, as the last big update for the online component of Red Dead Redemption 2 dropped way back in December 2019. However, Rockstar is promising a new Frontier Pursuit mode with a focus on “naturalism” and a new battle pass-type component, which is conveniently named Outlaw Pass. Finally, Rockstar says that it has addressed tons of bugs with the game and has taken community feedback to heart with this release, which is definitely appreciated.
In addition to the game updates on the way, Rockstar also took the time to address the well-being of its online communities. “We are also committed to ensuring that our games are fun for everyone and as safe as possible from modders, cheaters, hackers, and those who seek to harass other players,” said the company in its blog post.
“So far this year, we have taken action on hundreds of thousands of players caught violating community rules across both games. Please help us keep our communities safe and fun by reporting any sort of cheating either directly in-game or via our dedicated web reporting tools for both Red Dead Online and GTA Online.”
It's good to see that Rockstar is cracking down on those looking to spoil the fun for everyone, and its methods for “taking out” such offenders is among the best in the industry.

2023.03.27 01:42 StepwiseUndrape574 GTA V Added To Xbox Game Pass, Possible GTA 6 Release Date News Emerges

Fans of Grand Theft Auto V, who don't already have the game on Xbox One, will be happy to hear about the latest news from Microsoft. The game has been added to Xbox Game Pass, so players with a valid subscription can play the game on the console. GTA V launched back in 2013 and remains a very popular game thanks to online content updates and a massive modding community.
GTA V is also one of the most viewed games on Twitch and is regularly in the top five games on Steam. Rockstar hit a home run with GTA V, and adding it for free to Xbox Game Pass may bring gamers to the franchise that haven't yet tried it out. For Xbox One gamers with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Live Gold membership, access to the frequently updated Grand Theft Auto Online service is included. One sad bit of news is that GTA V is only offered on the console; it's not available on the PC with Game Pass.
While GTA V is still wildly popular, fans are clamoring for the next installment in the franchise: GTA 6. GTA 6 details recently leaked from a claimed beta tester and enticed us with visions of the game. A new rumor claims that GTA 6 won't launch until 2021, however, nothing official from Rockstar has been offered about GTA 6 so far.
The leak from a few days back was posted on Reddit and was later removed by moderators there. It's unclear if Rockstar pressured them to delete the content, but the leaker claimed that the game has a huge map that covers two major cities, Carcer City and Vice City, said to be based on Boston and Miami, respectively. True or not, GTA V fans are looking forward to GTA 6, even if it is a year or more away.

2023.03.27 01:32 CMcCord25 In the early morning hours of April 24, 2000 Danyese LaClair Disappeared From The Burton, Mi Post Office,Her Body Was Found Hours Later, Who Killed Danyese LaClair?

Her case was featured on the latest episode of Cold Justice and I found it to be a very puzzling case so I figured I’d post it here. Please excuse all mistakes as this is my first post here.
In the early morning hours of April 24, 2000 Danyese LaClair got off work at the local hospital and headed for the post office, which is located across the street from the police station to mail some East cards. It was there a short time later her red 1989 Chevy Cavalier was found, the driver’s door open, window half down, headlights on, and right turn signal left blinking. Danyese was nowhere to be found though. Around 11:30 that same morning an employee of a doctor’s office near the post office noticed a pile of clothes laying in the field behind the office and further out was the body of Danyese. She was clad only in her trench coat and underwear, she had been sexually assaulted and shot point blank in the back of her head with a 9mm. An interesting tidbit is her purse has never been found and none of her credit cards were ever used. Also a men’s gold and green ring was found underneath her pile of clothes.
Her husband became a suspect due to the fact Danyese was having an affair with someone she worked with but he had an alibi as he was home with their two kids plus he didn’t own a 9mm. Her lover was also excluded as a suspect. There is DNA that excluded her husband but it cannot be used in CODIS or with genetic genealogy from what they said on Cold Justice.
Only article I’ve found on her case- https://www.mlive.com/news/flint/2019/04/police-retesting-dna-evidence-in-2000-burton-murder-case.html
What are your thoughts on this puzzling Homicide? Who killed Danyese LaClair?
I personally think it was a police officer or a security guard because why else would she roll the window down? I know I’m not going to roll down the window for some stranger late at night. It would also explain why her credit cards were never used.

2023.03.27 01:23 ivyyy1234 i am so tired of them

i posted on here a while back about how they came on with exercise, only for a minute at the beginning of exercise but it would ruin the entire time that i was exercising. well ig the good news is that they stopped doing that and now they even resolve with excercise, but they are still there. now i'm getting them so strongly during panic attacks and my panic attacks seem to have increased tenfold. i just am at a complete loss, there's no trigger for the panic attacks sometimes and the ectopics make it a billion time worse. it doesn't mater how many times MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS tell me i'm okay, its like my brain just won't believe it. i've had an ekg on me 3 times during panic attacks and the come up with nothing and i don't know what to do anymore. for a while they were getting better and they're back again, i'll go days without even one and then a ton some other day. has anyone found a way out of this cycle? i'm in the middle of stressful time at school and it's all becoming too much :(

JUST IN: Russia just days away from taking over UN security council.
"He continued:"Unfortunately, there is no mechanism preventing Russia from holding the Presidency of the Council.
"However, we need to really discuss in detail why Russia is illegally occupying a place on the Security Council and what needs to be done in order to fix this problem."
"Especially since the UK is one of the permanent members of the Security Council, and, I think it's in the interest of both countries, Ukraine and the UK, to make the security council work properly."
