A cache of ostrich eggshells etched with geometric patterns has been uncovered in South Africa. The shells date to about 60,000 years ago. “It is an important new addition to the corpus of evidence for the development of modern human symbolic and artistic expression.” See close-ups of the eggshells.
Who are the Andersons? or: Faithful World Baptist Church - an organised hate group (TW: Upsetting content)
I originally had about 10 pages in word for this so AMA if you wann know more. I hope all the links lead to the correct source, because my collection of data was a hot mess and sometimes I forgot to put the link down. I know it's a sub rule, so it shouldn't need to be stated again, but absolutely do not contact them on social media. For them being hated is a sign of godliness and even if you managed to show them proof that they're wrong, they'd probably believe you're just part of the worldwide shadow government that made that statistic up. Seriously, they are really into conspiracy theories. I sectioned this post into the following topics: The family - What they are known for - Their religion - Their homo- and transphobia - Their anti-Semitism and Holocaust denying - Raising the children - Gender roles - Home-schooling - Modesty/Dating/Marriage - Reproductive rights - Racism and Slavery The family Steven and Zsuzsanna Anderson have 11 Kids: Solomon (18), Isaac (17), John (15), Miriam (13), Rebecca (11), Anna (9), Stephen (7), Boaz (6), Chloe (4), Peter (2) and Eva (born September 2019). Steven and Zsu met in 1999 when Steven (then 18) was trying to convert heathens in Germany. Zsu (then 20) was not a believer, but since Steven was handsome they wrote each other for months. On July 28th in 2000 she visited Steven and was promptly converted. They married on August 13th that same year and instead of finishing her college degree (cultural anthropology/journalism/political science) she moved to the US in September. Steven is the pastor of Faithful World Baptist Church, a new independent fundamentalist Baptists (NFIB), KJV only church that is listed as an organised hate group by Southern Poverty Law Center. What they are known for Steven Anderson is banned from South Africa, the UK, Botswana, Malawi, Jamaica, The Netherlands (and thus the entire Schengen Area), Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand because of his homophobic and anti-Semitic hate speech. The bush fires in Australia were God’s revenge for him being banned from Australia. In one of his sermons, Anderson publicly stated that he’s praying for Obama to die. This was supposed to happen due to brain cancer, so he wouldn’t turn into a martyr. Secret Service was worried enough to contact him. The three eldest Anderson boys (Solomon, John and Isaac) were part of a group chat that included girls as young as 13. There they shared their fantasies of choking, raping, beating and sodomizing these girls during sex. Solomon shared pictures of himself. There was talk of grooming the girls and they wanted to pay hookers with church funds to have sex with after praying for them. Anderson claims to have handled the punishment at home and banned both the families of the affected girls and church members who brought the topic up. He says it’s a private matter and the boys should be forgiven. When the Josh Duggar scandal broke, Zsu had different reactions: Paedophiles deserve the death penalty, there was no forgiveness for Josh and it should not have been kept private in order to protect other potential victims. A family that raised Josh is not allowed to pretend to be a moral upstanding Christian family, and bad parenting is the reason he turned out that way. Zsu once stated that she’d stop socialising with her children if they were gay or child molesters or mass murderers. Solomon had a courtship with a girl called Saer but I don't have a sourceBy 17 Solomon was engaged to a girl named Saer, thanks u/maggiemazz29. From what I have gathered, her parents used to be involved with the porn industry before getting saved, which was apparently the reason the relationship was broken off. However, on their blog there are still many pictures of the two of them together. Solomon seems to have been interested in Saer from when he was 14. There’s a blogpost about him liking a girl and wanting to marry her and she’s described as a good friend. Saer is called his BFF around that time. Their religion Despite the fact that they are fundies, they do divide the bible into biblical teachings and stories, the latter only record people doing things without saying they are right, so you don’t have to follow them. Earth is 6254 years old, give or take 25 years. Salvation happens through faith alone, no need to repent for sins, though it's nice if you do. They don’t believe in the prosperity gospel, but they don’t have a rainy day fund as God has them covered. The chain of command goes God -> husband -> Wife -> children. Created to be his Help Meet is a good book. They are part of the quiverful movement and believe God should decide how many children you have, even if having more kids might kill you. Evolution and the big bang theory are the same thing and are wrong, and dinosaurs and humans lived at the same time. Their homo- and transphobia Steven Anderson celebrated the Orlando nightclub shooting and expressed sadness over the fact that unlike in the past the victim’s families were not ashamed to claim their dead family members. He wants the death penalty for LGBTQAI+ and ministers that perform same-sex marriages should be stoned to death. AIDS is God’s revenge and will be cured by killing every single homosexual person. Gay people are paedophiles. IVF is used by the LGBTQAI+ community to have children to prey on. Homosexuality is Zsuientifically proven to be a choice and those “sodomites” recruit through rape and molestations in schools and day cares. Once you turned into an animal by choosing to be gay you can never be saved. Steven Anderson once held a Make America Straight Again conference and another time he told a gay reporter he hoped he’d die of brain cancer. Gay people run the US (but depending on who they hate more any given day, sometimes it’s the Jews/shadow government). Transgender people are an abomination. Their anti-Semitism and Holocaust denying Once, Steven Anderson tricked Holocaust survivors into appearing in an anti-Semitic and Holocaust-denying Film. Jews are not God’s chosen people, they are some of the most immoral people in the world. Dark forces were responsible for the founding of Israel While at one point Zsucifer acknowledged that the Nazi regime had murdered 6 million Jews, she later stated that there were no trains full of Jews brought to extermination camps and that there were no gas chambers. According to that statement, only a fraction of 6 million people died indirectly due to being mistreated during WW2, a mistreatment that was necessary and normal for war. Raising the children To Train Up A Child is unnecessarily tough is it breaks a child’s will. You are supposed to spank your child from at around age one (a guesstimate by me based on different posts). Zsu claims she dislikes spanking but is really blasé about it, casually mentioning that Isaac had a sore bum after trying to strangle John as a child. If they are out and the kids misbehave they get tallies put on their hands and spanked according to those at home. Zsu seems to feed her children a healthy amount of organic food, but the diet is quite carb heavy and their fridges and freezers are locked between meals. Sister mumming is done by both girls and boys and Solomon is Anna’s favourite parent. You should not teach your kids to share, because that teaches them to be communist. The child that has to share gets taught that stealing in form of taxes is okay, the one that gets to share will turn into a welfare recipient. Gender roles Women should not have the right to vote, to seek divorce or to work outside the home. It’s okay though for Zsu to work multiple jobs from home. In order to write a cook book, Zsu actually got a woman to move in with her and take care of the kids, but they are totally not affected by her working. A man’s work is much more important than a women’s. If your husband is abusive or threatening to kill you, you have to stay with him. It’ll teach your kids to make a better choice If the chores get too much, just have your kids do them. Once Miriam was brought on vacation with Zsu and Steven just so that she could mind the baby.In the words of Steven:
„If my wife asks me to do something like take out the trash, I tell her to have one of the kids do it. I didn’t sire nine children, so I could take out the trash or pick up after the family dog."
If your husband does something that falls into your jurisdiction you better make damn sure to thank him and don’t you dare criticise him for doing it wrong Girls should never become preachers, judges, police officers or military personnel, they should get married, have kids and be a stay at home mum. Dads and big brothers are there to protect a girls virginity, and Steven goes out on one on one dates with his daughters. Steven thinks women shouldn’t view it as their duty to have sex with their husbands but they need to help him avoid temptation by „being available to meet [their husband’s] needs“. Steven compares the relationship between husband and wife to that of employer and employee Home-schooling Day care/schools/counselling/Sunday schools are all run by paedophiles and child abusers; they are also full of drugs, alcohol and bad peers. Day care causes SIDS. You should not leave your children out of sight, but it’s okay to use church goers to look after your children and clean your house for free. For Steven, the avoidance of those institutions seems to be about control, as he can’t control what’s being said there. The bible commands you to home-school your kids. Traditional school work should be limited to 40 minutes a day and subjects the kids don’t like don’t have to be covered. There’s a three month break whenever a new baby comes along. Once your children are able to read you don’t have to actively teach them anymore College is overrated and worthless. Anything taught at college can be learned through apprenticeships and reading. If you do want to have a job that requires a degree, you should go to a private college without “diversity training” Modesty/Dating/Marriage Skirts only (PJ pants seem to be okay), shoulders may be shown. Modesty means you should blend into society. Girls have to have long hair and boys have to have short hair. Kids get to choose their own partners from a pre-approved pool. Zsu once mentioned she thinks it’s nice for girls to wear purity ring. Courting and dating are the same thing and unmarried couples should either be supervised or dating in public spaces. Their rule of thumb for what is okay before marriage is if you wouldn’t do it with someone of the own gender, don’t do it with the opposite gender. There should be no physical contact except for normal, everyday gestures. You should be in love with your partner prior to marriage. There are diseases that are not STDs, but are unheard of in virgins getting married - unfortunately Steven Anderson doesn’t name those. It’s okay to sleep with a few people if your spouse dies and you get remarried. However, sleeping with hundreds of people is wrong, because our bodies were not created to exchange bacteria with that many people. Reproductive rights A Zsucientifial Study proves that 90 % of OB/GYNs are male, 100 % of those are perverts, so 90 % of OB/GYNs are perverts. OB/GYNs only choose that career in order to prey on victims. But essential oils are the amazing. Abortion is the American Holocaust (though since the Holocaust didn’t happen according to them that leaves me a bit confused). Abortion includes IVF and birth control. IVF is perverse because you are getting impregnated by another man (a doctor). NFP is wrong because it defrauds your husband and he would have to abstain for longer than the bible allows. Condoms are unbiblical because they prevent husband and wife from becoming one flesh. Birth control is the reason for high divorce rates and leads to you choosing the wrong partner. Zsu doesn’t seem to believe in infertility, as in the bible every single woman that prayed for a child had one in the end. They openly admit to only care about unborn lives as Steven is in favour of cutting financial support for drug addicts and “whores”. He has to work for endless hours to pay “every lazy whore who lives on welfare” and “her bastard children” that obviously all have different fathers Racism and Slavery In the words of Zsucifer:
“People in Africa live like animals and sleep with everyone and everything that moves.“.
White people are not the dominant society in the US. POC are the racists. Black activists teach black people to be dependent on the government, they should just tell them that everyone has to work hard to make a living. POC should not hide behind being less privileged, believing in God would give them all the privilege they need. POC should accept that we can’t all look like God When one of Zsu’s readers told her it’s offensive to call Native Americans Indians and she should refer to them as „First People“ or „Native Americans“ she played stupid and said she didn’t recall Adam and Eve being Cherokee. Slavery is good, because the bible says so. If you have a slave, you should beat your slave. Slavery is better than sending debtors to prison. Their love for slavery might be the reason they hate Abraham Lincoln.
A not-so-brief rundown of letters D-F in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'
Below is a rundown of letters D-F of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this. I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf D-F d’abo, Henri & Tatiana: John Henry Erland d’Abo is the grandson of the 9th Duke of Rutland (more info on what these titles all mean can be found here: https://www.debretts.com/expertise/essential-guide-to-the-peerage/what-is-the-peerage/).

Peter did not work for the company, but he and Jennifer d’Abo had a son together. Their son, Joel Cadbury, became owner of the Groucho Club, a watering hole often frequented by famous people. Three years after Cadbury sold the club, their website became the center of a child pornography scandal (link to story:https://www.sott.net/article/242698-Groucho-Clubs-website-forum-hit-by-child-pornography-scandal) D’Alessie, Carman: This name turned up no results, however, we can safely assume that this is actually Carmen D’Alessio, the international nightlife guru who helped spawn Studio 54 and other famous clubs. She is a party legend with countless celebrity ties. d’Arenberg, Prince Pierre: Family lineage can be traced back 1000 years. European royalty. Extremely wealthy not because of his ties to nobility, but because his mother, Margaret Bedford, was an heiress to Standard Oil (Exxon). d’Uzes, Jacques De crussol: The 17th Duke of Uzes. Not much else found on him. Margaret Bedford married into his family shortly after her divorce with Prince Charles Auguste Armand d’Arenberg, father of Prince Pierre d’Arenberg.

Davis then went on to produce movies and TV shows before transitioning to digital media. Day, Nick and Heather: Not much to be found on these two. There are several articles that speak of their ranch in Kenya. Apparently, it is a fairly popular spot where people stay to get some rest and solitude. de Andrade, Marcelo: An international banker (not the serial killer) who lives within one mile of Epstein’s mansion in NYC. de Andrade was married to Lisa Bjornson, a successful banker and higher-up at J.P.

She speaks about how Epstein was able to lure her into the life as a young girl. De Soto, Fernando: Very difficult to pinpoint.

Sister of the more famous Janice Dickinson. Dickinson, Janice: One of the most successful models of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Dickinson has been occasionally labeled as the first ever supermodel. Opened her own modeling agency in 2005. Ironically, she accused Bill Cosby of raping her back in 1982 and wrote about it in her memoir. When called to the stand during Cosby’s trial, Cosby’s lawyer pointed out the differences between Dickinson’s testimony and her account of the incident in her memoir.

There is a great article detailing Dubin and his wife’s relationship with Epstein here:https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/09/glenn-dubin-epstein-questions). Summary of the article: Dubin was the first one accused by Epstein victim Virginia Guiffre. Rinaldo Rizzo, Dubin’s chef, testified that sexual activities occurred between Dubin and a 15-year-old girl, which led to him and his wife quitting as Epstein’s chefs. Dubin’s wife, Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin, dated Epstein for a long time before she married Dubin. The couple was so close with Epstein that even after Epstein was convicted in 2008 and officially a registered sex offender, they invited him to Thanksgiving dinner and wrote a letter to his probation officer that they trusted him around their children, who were all minors at the time. Multiple sources say Epstein was actually their children’s Godfather, but a spokesman for the couple denies it. Glen Dubin and Epstein helped each other with their business ties, as well. Dubin also had other ties with Epstein (personal friends with Les Wexner and others). Dubin and his wife are definitely major players in the Epstein saga.

God knows the stories she could tell. Rumor has it her toes still look like prunes to this day. Ducrey-Giordano, Francisco: Likely the owner of General Vegetables out of Italy. No further info found. Duesing, Paul: An interior architectural designer who has worked on luxury and personal resorts all around the world. Duesing claims Epstein tried to hire him to work on Epstein’s home on Epstein’s private island back in 2002, but Duesing declined because he didn’t like Epstein. Says he doesn’t even know how Epstein got his number in the first place. Perhaps it was Duesing’s ties with the royal family. He tells stories of getting the Queen Mother drunk, being close with Lord and Lady Lloyd, working on the home of Mohamed Al-Fayed, father of Dodi, Princess Diana’s boyfriend who died in the car crash with her. Duke of York: Prince Andrew, the toe-sucking pedophile (allegedly), himself. Photographed with victims, Epstein, and Maxwell many times over. His reputation has been completely crushed.

Duthie, John & Charlotte: John is primarily a television director based out of London. Duthie also won some poker tournaments against some of the world’s best players in the early 2000s. His wife, Charlotte played a big role in Sir James Goldsmith’s political career as a member of the Referendum Party back in 1997. Goldsmith received 3.5% of the vote in Putney, a constituency located in London. Dzhabrailou, Umar: Umar Dzhabrailov is a Russian politician and advisor to Sergei Prikhodko, the current First Deputy Head of the Russian Government Office and Deputy Prime Minister of Russia in Dmitry Medvedev’s Cabinet. Dzhabrailov was rumored to be romantically linked to Naomi Campbell, supermodel and one of the main suspects in Epstein’s underage sex scandal, in the early 2000s. Dzhabrailov, a supremely wealthy businessman, ran for president in 2000, garnering 0.1% of the vote as an Independent. Dzhabrailov was a partner in Russia’s Radisson Hotel along with American entrepreneur Paul Tatum. After their falling out in 1996, Tatum was shot and killed. Some think Dzhabrailov was responsible while others think he was set up. Ecclestone, Bernie: A billionaire British business magnate and former chief executive of Formula One Group. Ecclestone has faced some minimal controversies for tax evasion, bribery, and saying that Hitler was a man who was “able to get things done.” Disgustingly enough, Ecclestone, at the age of 89, became a father to his first son, Ace, on July 1, 2020. Eckon, Paul: Paul Ekon is an international investor and venture capitalist who allegedly fled South Africa in the mid-90s because he was being investigated for links to a gold-smuggling syndicate. Has strong ties to South Africa, including being a personal friend of former president, Thabo Mbeki. Edsel, Lucinda: No info found. Edwards, Andrew & Tracy: Unsure. There was an Andrew Edwards and Tracy Edwards on linkedin who have a background in finance, but it is not conclusive whether or not they are the ones listed here or if they are even married. There is also a Tracy Edwards who is a former British sailor who used to work as a Project Manager for Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and now teaches children of Internet safety and online reputation. This would be a far more interesting connection, but I cannot find anyone by the name of Andrew with a relevant relationship to her. Ellan, Johnathan: No info found.

A not-so-brief rundown of the letter M in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'
Below is a rundown of the letter M under Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/). I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/). I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hqko0y/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_gi_in_jeffrey/). I posted letters J-L on July 15, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hrq9bg/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_jl_of_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this. I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf M Mack, Carol & Earl: Carol Mack (nee Dickey) is an interior designer. Carol is a friend of Epstein and Ghislaine (https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/carol-mack-jeffrey-epstein-and-ghislaine-maxwell-attend-news-photo/1161443015?adppopup=true).

David and Bella were voted a top 50 power couple over the age 50 back in 2013. Magaziner, Ira C: Was the senior advisor of policy development for President Bill Clinton.

Remember, the Clintons helped bail out their colleague, Laura Silsby, who was caught trying to traffick 33 Haitian children (https://harvardhrj.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/14/2009/09/King.pdf). Most importantly, Magaziner traveled on the Lolita Express on several occasions (https://www.golocalprov.com/news/exclusive-sexual-predator-jeffrey-epstein-tied-to-ris-ira-magaziner-father), including the infamous flight that included Epstein, Clinton, Kevin Spacey, Naomi Campbell, and Chris Tucker.

Mahler, Giovanni: Businessman in the gas industry. He co-founded Navigator Gas shipping company. The most interesting story revolving around Mahler can be read here (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/millionaires-wife-is-killed-by-speedboat-in-sardinia-305350.html). Mahler was on a motorboat on the way to his yacht in Sardinia where close friend Flavio Briatore (Briatore is Naomi Campbell’s ex-boyfriend and was photographed with Epstein victim Virginia Roberts several times -https://www.the-sun.com/news/265368/prince-andrew-epstein-scandal-accuser-virginia-roberts-posts-chilling-message-aimed-at-naomi-campbell-and-ghislaine/) waited. On the way to the yacht, Mahler and the others on board struck and killed Alex Ciardi, wife of investment banker Giuseppe Ciardi. Turns out that Alex Ciardi worked with the NSPCC, a children’s charity that several others in Epstein’s ‘black book’ (Jemma Kidd, Tim Jeffries, Mary Glanville, Clare Hazell-Ivaegh, Ben Holland-Martin) and Princess Margaret have served. The accident occurred close to Silvio Berlusconi’s villa. Berlusconi is a billionaire businessman and four-time former Prime Minister of Italy who throws infamously raunchy Bunga Bunga parties.

Mandelson, Peter: European Trade Commissioner from 2004-2008. A Labour party politician who held several cabinet posts under suspected pedophile Tony Blair and was First Secretary of State from 2009-2010. Mandelson was a very close friend of Epstein’s. Mandelson (allegedly) phoned Epstein in 2009, while Epstein was in jail, to ask Epstein to arrange a meeting with him and Jamie Dimon, the head of JP Morgan. Epstein agreed to do so, often addressing Mandelson by the nickname “Petie” (https://nypost.com/2019/10/20/uk-politician-peter-mandelson-allegedly-called-jeffrey-epstein-in-jail-for-a-favo). Mandelson was introduced to Epstein through Ghislaine Maxwell (they met through her father), who he has been friends with since the 1980s. He is also a very close friend of Prince Andrew. Mandelson is confirmed to have stayed on Epstein’s island and had dinner at Epstein’s NYC mansion with Donald Trump, David Blaine, and Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7412517/Peter-Mandelson-Jeffrey-Epstein-Ex-Labour-minister-shopping-depraved-financier-2005.html). If you scroll through the article, you will see pictures of Mandelson shopping with Epstein, as well as pictures of him with Prince Andrew.

Margolis, Eric: A journalist who worked as contributing editor for the Toronto Sun and has appeared on CNN and on the Huffington Post website. He inherited Canadian vitamin manufacturer Jamieson Laboratories, which he sold for $300 million in 2014. Margolis chastises Epstein, Maxwell, Clinton and others and denies doing anything inappropriate, although he does claim to have been to Epstein’s homes in NYC and Florida. He says that he suspected it was a ‘honey trap’ (https://ericmargolis.com/2019/07/the-honey-trap-on-e-71st/).

The number of suspected pedophiles and child traffickers that are involved with the NSPCC is mindblowing. His ex-wife, Pia, is close friends with Allegra Hicks (https://www.pressreader.com/uk/evening-standard-west-end-final-extra-es-homes-and-property/20080305/281767034925175), who is also in Epstein’s book.

Of course, he was eventually found to be innocent of these charges. Coincidentally, it seems as though Epstein target dancers at NYC studios, including one who was approached by an intermediary after ballet class (https://www.pointemagazine.com/jeffrey-epstein-dancers-2640183763.html?rebelltitem=2#rebelltitem2). Marzotto, Matteo: Fashion mogul. Marzotto’s family owned Valentino fashion before selling in 2006. He used to date scumbag supermodel Naomi Campbell, who is embroiled in Epstein’s child trafficking and child abuse ring.

After nailing Mary Richardson, Bobby Kennedy Jr’s future wife, he joined the Mujahideen and even led attacks against the Russians. He returned to Britain and nearly married the daughter of former British politician Michael Heseltine, who has some serious pedo connections and is listed in Epstein’s book (check out my G-I thread for more info). Carlos would go on to become a war reporter and was charged with looking for Osama Bin Laden for the news program ‘60 Minutes’. He was found days later, dead of a heroin overdose, in a sleazy hotel on the outskirts of town. Many conspiracies abound (including from his family) who believe he was murdered because he was found with a heroin needle and it was well known that he never injected (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1216159/The-drug-addict-friends-haunt-Trinny-Woodall.html).

Maxwell, Isabel: Older sister of Ghislaine. Co-founded Magellan with sister, Christine, and has served on the World Economic Forum (as has Philip Mallinckrodt, listed above). Along with twin sister, Christine, is rumored to be involved in tracking software and Israeli intelligence.

McAlpine, Alistair & Romilly: Baron McAlpine of West Green was a close advisor to Margaret Thatcher and served in the House of Lords for 26 years. McAlpine was falsely accused (supposedly) of child abuse by the BBC program, Newsnight.

Coincidentally, McAlpine collected the work of Graham Ovenden, an artist who drew naked children. Ovenden was found guilty of sexual abuse against children against underage girls, some as young as six-years-old (https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2013/oct/09/artist-graham-ovenden-two-years-jail).

This one has been a difficult game to review. There's a masterclass people expect from Square games and I don't know if this hits it, but I do know that I enjoyed what I played and don't feel ripped off for buying a copy to give away to one of you guys. So to me, I would say it is worth getting if you understand these caveats that are here. If you don't like some of these caveats, I would say there's no reason in pushing back and maybe waiting for a bit.
I love Final Fantasy VII Remake. Midgar feels so real, so full of life that I could almost picture myself there. The story still holds up as one of gaming's all-time greats, even with just this slight section, and the new action-based mechanics make battles more exciting than I thought possible. Cloud, Barret, Tifa and Aerith are incredibly well-realized, and the voice talent behind them is utterly superb. If the rest of the episodes are as good as this first one, the entirety of this series may yet dethrone the PS1 release... Mechanically, visually, and even narratively, FF7 and its remake are two almost entirely different games and both deserve a spot in your collection.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is not what I expected. It’s a grand, ambitious, beautiful experiment, a bold new take on a game that millions of people remember fondly. It sometimes feels shackled by the weight of two decades worth of expectations, but it handles those restraints with aplomb. I certainly can’t wait to see what’s next.
I loved this. I loved this a lot. I loved almost every part of it. Even the parts that weren't great, I was still enjoying myself and the parts that were great that were just... Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a game that can and will be torn down by many people for its business model and its minor shortcomings, but it will also be held up by many others for the sheer love and joy of it all.
I don't necessarily see FFVII Remake as a replacement to the original game, as remakes generally are. It's a complement to it, where the developers have built on the world and characters in such a way that it's like two sides of a single coin - for me, at least, without one, the other doesn't exist.
Final Fantasy VII Remake could have gone south very quickly but instead, Square Enix has crafted an authentic experience that brings the world of Midgar and its cast to life in new ways. The story has never been told in a better format, the combat is fun and addictive and the promise of more to come makes this first chapter so much more worthwhile. If this is the start of things, I can’t wait to see where it goes from there.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is an extraordinary game: not only as a magnificent reinterpretation of a classic, but also because of the courage instilled in its writing and perfect conception. A great title from Square-Enix, you have to give it some respect.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is a masterful modernization of the series' classic formula. The game is an extremely solid JRPG that looks, sounds and plays great, despite some pacing issues and linearity. That said, the unexpected story twists may sour the experience a bit for those who expected a faithful remake.
Taking one of the most genre defining and well loved games of all time and rebuilding it from the ground up was a tall order, but Square Enix pulled it off with modernized gameplay and a fleshing out of the world and many characters compared to the original. While only featuring a portion of the story fans know and love, Final Fantasy VII Remake still manages to feels like a complete game, yet still part of a larger narrative to come, and will have fans waiting anxiously for the next entry as soon as they finish.
I kind of agonized over rating Final Fantasy VII Remake. It's going to garner a lot of discussion from people who are both blown away by the new treatment and disappointed by it, and those feelings are not mutually exclusive. In the end — after thinking on it for some time and removing nostalgia from the equation entirely — I came to the conclusion that this world is full of powerful characters and a setting that's worth remembering: remake or not.
Much like its predecessor, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is far from perfect. Its linear design and difficulty spikes may be off-putting for some, but stick through the rough bits and there's another incredible story and wonderful world waiting.
Putting the few slight issues aside, Final Fantasy VII Remake stuns with how it expands on the original. At the same time, it takes its own risks and creates its own footsteps. Final Fantasy VII Remake is beautiful, engrossing, and hard to pass up. This game is meant for both fans and newcomers, no matter how learned, and the sheer level of time and effort put into this reimagining truly shows through and through.
At the end of it all, even under immense scrutiny and in spite of some disappointing shortcomings, there's no getting around the fact that I had a giant grin on my face for just about the entirety of Final Fantasy VII Remake. It's an enjoyable enough game if you're a casual fan of Final Fantasy or action RPGs, but if you're in it for the fandom you may just have your mind blown.
If you’re willing to keep an open mind, you’ll be able to enjoy Final Fantasy VII Remake for what it is at its core: a gorgeous, well-made, and fun RPG that successfully retells one of the best video game stories ever told with a few twists.
A very slow start turns into a non stop thrill ride through the reimagined world of Final Fantasy VII. Fans of the franchise will feel right at home in a game that is likely to dethrone Resident Evil 2 as the reigning king of modern remakes. If it weren't for a combat system that is downright frustrating at times, it would be a must buy for nearly every RPG enthusiast. As it stands now, this is a day one buy for Final Fantasy fans, but for everyone else mileage may vary.
Final Fantasy VII Remake isn't the retelling of a cult classic that you're expecting it to be. It's a lengthy and deliberately slow-paced walk down the Midgar memory lane that leisurely basks within the warm glow of nostalgia, but at the same time it's an exhilarating and cinematic explosion of action that not only celebrates the impact of the game which rewrote the rulebook for an entire industry in 1997, but also everything else that followed in its genre-defining wake.
If you can break through the more sluggish and unenjoyable moments of the game, you’ll find an absolute gem of an action-RPG shining at the core, a promise of what Square Enix can do with role-playing games in this generation and generations to come.
The big question for Final Fantasy VII Remake for many is going to be: was it worth the wait? For me, the answer is yes. I teared up at several points, I enjoyed the combat for the most part and the experience of being able to explore Midgar with these fantastic characters in such a visually updated fashion was an absolutely amazing experience.
At its best, Final Fantasy VII Remake is a loving, painstakingly meticulous reimagining of the original. While not every new facet is equally inspired, it remains an exuberant reminder of why it captivated many so long ago.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake sets out to fully re-imagine a classic RPG with improved combat and an expanded story. Unfortunately, it's hurt by weak side quests and a surplus of padding, and its biggest change is bound to be controversial. It's one of the most coherent and enjoyable Final Fantasy releases in years, but it's also likely to be one of the most divisive.
Final Fantasy VII Remake manages to balance the introduction of new concepts with faithfully recreations of the original game's most memorable aspects, but it also unnecessarily pads out this first installment in a larger story with too much downtime between its most striking moments.
IBIO is an innovator biologics company developing therapeutics and vaccines for the betterment of human and animal health, including a virus-like particle (VLP) -based vaccine against SARS-CoV-2.
IBio’s subsidiary, iBio CDMO is a global leader in plant-based manufacturing. Its FastPharming and FastGlycaneering platforms provide contract development and manufacturing services via its 130,000-square foot facility in Bryan, Texas.
The speed and scalability of FastPharming make it an ideal choice for other innovator. companies who want to rapidly produce COVID-19 biologics.
IBio is a full-service biologics CDMO equipped to take you from pre-clinical development through regulatory approval, to commercial product launch.
Dedicated to maintaining the effectiveness of the quality system, complying with applicable regulatory requirements and exceeding customer expectations by delivering quality products through process management and continual improvement.
Fast. Shortens the timelines to the clinic and can move a program from gene sequence to protein production in as little as 3 weeks.
Economical. No Expensive, labor-intensive, and costly cell line development.
Quality. Production of consistent therapeutics that are well-accepted by global regulatory bodies.
Scalable. No time-consuming scale-up challenges.
Safe. Mammalian viruses can’t grow in plants; Ibio’s plant-based production platform minimizes contamination risks.
No animal products or animal-derived components are used at any point.
No Inherent adventitious agents and no competency for agent replication.
Demands are as high as ever for technologies that can support production of complex glycoproteins.
N-linked glycosylation is a critical post-translational modification to an original, naked protein that influences biological activity, protein conformation, stability, solubility, secretion, pharmacokinetics (PK), and antigenicity.
Can provide the power, speed and control needed to develop next-gen monoclonal antibodies, bio-betters, and fast-follower products.
Consistency. Ibio’s N. benthamiana expression system delivers products with inherently greater homogeneity versus traditional platforms:
Bacteria do not glycosylate. Yeast hyper glycosylate, and Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell lines do not precisely mimic human glycosylation patterns.
Plants do not naturally attach α1,6-fucose, terminal β1,4-galactose residues or any sialic acid residues, leading to simpler, more homogeneous N-linked glycosylation patterns.
Afucosylation. Desirable afucosylated G0, G1, and G2 side chains can be engineered via the removal of plant-specific sugars (core α1,3-fucose and β1,2-xylose) and the addition of terminal β1,4-galactose residues to enhance effector functions, especially antibody-dependent-cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC).
Oligomannose Modification.FastGlycaneering enables the production of glycoproteins exclusively decorated with oligomannose residues without altering the amino acid sequence of the target protein. This can be useful for the development of lysosomal enzymes, proteins with a high clearance rate, or certain effector functions.
IBIO-100 (Human Health)
Ibio’s therapeutic candidate for the treatment of systemic scleroderma, pulmonary fibrosis, and other fibrotic diseases.
It has been granted orphan-drug designation by the FDA for treatment of systemic sclerosis.
IBIO-100 is a fusion of the endostatin derived E4 antifibrotic peptide to the hinge and heavy chain of human IgG1.
This fusion is produced using Ibio’s proprietary FastPharming transient plant expression technology and has achieved significant reductions in fibrotic systems in both cellular and animal models.
IBIO-200 (Human Health)
A virus-like particle (VLP) based vaccine for COVID-19 disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 strain of coronavirus.
VLP based vaccines are known to interact with immune cells differently than soluble antigens and can trigger both humoral and cellular responses.
IBIO-200 was designed to maximized uptake by antigen presenting cells in order to increase the overall immune response.
A SARS-CoV-2 derived antigen is fused to a self-assembling protein partner to generate the VLP.
The antigen is displayed in a repetitive structure and the geometry, and the particle is decorated with oligomannose molecules to resemble the structure of a naturally occurring virus.
FastPharming delivers a tightly controlled particle size which offers many quality and scale up advantages given that the uniform antigen display enables better dose definition and higher product yields.
IBIO-201 (Human Health)
A second SARS-CoV-2 vaccine candidate.
Based on a subunit platform that combines antigens derived from the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein fused with Ibio’s patented lichenase booster molecule (“LicKM”).
Designed to enhance immune responses.
Subunit vaccines have a proven track-record in protecting humans against deadly diseases, however, one of the challenges is that they often require the use of an adjuvant to boost their immunogenicity.
Additionally, they are often insufficiently stable to be formulated into a vaccine.
iBio has addressed both of these issues with the use of LicKM, a modified thermostable variant of the lichenase protein from Clostridium thermocellum.
LicKM fusion proteins can strengthen the initial immune response to the antigen (as measured by antibody titer) and extend the duration of the immune response, thus lowering vaccine antigen dose requirements or enabling fewer doses to establish prolonged immunity.
As a result, antigens fused to LicKM generally demonstrate stronger immune responses and promote long-lasting immunity.
Fusing the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein antigens with iBio’s LicKM technology may be advantageous in achieving prolonged immune response against COVID-19, while enabling unmatched scalability for a population-wide immunization program through FastPharming capabilities.
IBIO-400 (Animal Health)
A Classical Swine Fever Vaccine:
Classical Swine Fever (CSF) is a contagious, often fatal, disease affecting both feral and domesticated pigs.
Outbreaks in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America have impacted animal health and food security.
Severe socio-economic impacts on both the pig industry worldwide and small-scale pig farming.
In collaboration with the Institute of Infectious Animal (IIAD) at Texas A&M University and Kansas State University.
Developing a safe and effective DIVA-capable subunit vaccine using FastPharming.
Studies have shown after single-dose vaccination, the adjuvant, plant-made CSF E2 subunit vaccine provides complete protection in challenged pigs and is accompanied by strong virus neutralization antibody responses.
Advantages of IBIO-400
Reduced Costs. Producing a subunit vaccine in plants saves time and money.
Efficacy. Studies showed protection after a single dose.
Safety. All vaccinated animals were protected from CSF clinical signs.
DIVA. Provided through the absence of Ems response.
Flexibility. Potential for use in bait for feral hogs (natural virus reservoirs) without substantial purification, unlike live attenuated vaccines.
Adaptability. Possible rapid adaptation to regional strain variations and emerging novel subgenotypes.
Vice President of Downstream Process Development and Manufacturing.
Prior to career with iBio, Dr. Berquist was a research assistant professor in the College of Medicine at the Texas A&M Health Science Center investigating aspects of Eukaryotic DNA replication and repair.
Earned a doctorate in Molecular Medicine from University of Maryland School of Medicine.

% held by institutions: 11.56%
Shares Short: 4.03 million
As of March 31, 2020, the Company’s accumulated deficit was $146.9 million.
For the 9 months ended March 31, 2020, the Company’s net loss was approximately $12.9 million and it had cash used in operating activities of $9.5 million.
On May 1, 2020, the Company paid off the total balance on the notes payable of $1,196,000.
As of March 31, 2020, cash on hand totaled approximately $10.0 million as compared to $4.4 million as of June 30, 2019.
Gross revenue for Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019 were approximately $96,000 and $527,000, respectively, a decrease of approximately $431,000.
The decrease is primarily attributable to the timing of income earned under the strategic relationship with CC-Pharming Ltd. of Beijing, China (“CC-Pharming”) for the joint development of products and manufacturing facilities for the Chinese biopharmaceutical market, utilizing iBio’s technology. Revenue earned from CC-Pharming totaled approximately $75,000 in Fiscal 2020 versus $467,000 in Fiscal 2019. Revenue earned from other third-party customers in Fiscal 2020 totaled approximately $20,000 versus $60,000 in Fiscal 2019.
CONCERNS: · A few very important quotes from the 10-Q filed 05/15/2020 · “To become and remain profitable, the Company must succeed in commercializing its technologies, alone or with its licensees, the service offerings provided by its CDMO facility, and in developing and eventually commercializing products that generate significant revenue. In addition, profitability will depend on continuing to attract and retain customers for the development, manufacturing and technology transfer services offered by the Company.” · “Based on the total cash on hand of approximately $10.0 million as of March 31, 2020, combined with subsequent purchases of the Company’s common stock by Lincoln Park through the date of the filing of this report totaling approximately $10 million, we believe the Company has adequate cash on hand to support the Company’s activities for at least one year from this report date.” CONCLUSION I am bullish medium/long term on IBIO if they can mange to effectively license their technology platforms as well as continue to further research and develop their vaccination candidates. IF either IBIO 200 and/or 201 show positive results soon in combating SARS-CoV-2, this is could lead to government funding (possible OWS) as the ability to mass produce 500 million vaccines annually on their own is huge. They have burned through a good bit of cash and are reliant on some key factors, but overall with the direction the world is going and the increased popularity/demand for vaccines, I am positive on the future outlook of IBIO for now. I own a position of 200 shares @ 5.29 and plan to hold until a SP of $15-20 Hope everyone enjoys and as always I invite comments, concerns, and additional information I missed. Best of luck to everyone with their trades and have a great weekend! EDIT 1: July 29, 2020:IBIO filed an 8-K. Within the 8-K, it states "The Company plans to participate in media interviews and make a series of investor presentations over the next several weeks, during which it intends to discuss the preliminary preclinical data set forth in Exhibit 99.1, which is incorporated herein by reference." (Page 3, Item 8.01). In my opinion, you wouldn't participate in media interviews and prepare for investor presentations if you had negative preliminary data or doubts. I remain upbeat about the next few months.
An analysis on where the Marble Teams would be located in the Human world
Important : Please keep in mind that the references made in the JMR Fandom and RetRollSpectives are meant in a geographical sense, and not at all cultural. Spoiler Warning : If you believe that the Marble World has no tangible connection to the Human World, and would like to continue with this view please do not continue reading this post. Everyone should enjoy JMR, and my interest in the sport is only increased by whatever minute connection I can find between the Marble world and the Human world [whether real or imagined], but this may not be true for everyone and I do not wish to spoil anyone's enjoyment of the sport. It is my understanding that the Marble world is very similar to the Human world in a geographical sense, so I've seen quite a few posts [post 1, post 2, post 3, post 4] on where the Marble Teams would be located if they raced in the Human world. I've tried to take the best information from these posts and compared them with the data from the Official JMR Fandom, RetRollSpective, as well as official team imagery to create what I think is a slightly improved location list. I've tried to stay with geographic markers as much as possible, but given the limited information that is available about some teams, I've made the assumption that there may be some cultural similarities between the Marble and Human worlds to pinpoint these locations. The italicized text is the information I've used as reference points to help locate the teams and this information comes from either the JMR Fandom or RetRollSpective. Balls of Chaos - Shanghai, China The Balls of Chaos are one of the oldest teams in marble sport history, dating back to the start of the millennium. They come from the city of Hunluen, one of the most populous cities in East Asia and the world. Hunluen was established in the third century when settlers from the Om civilization migrated northeast in search of riches. They found a flat plain in the center of several river tributaries, where they established the city. A major metropolis in East Asia, that is located on a flat plain at the center of several river tributaries - This sounds a lot like Shanghai, which is is located on an alluvial plain and is bisected by the Huangpu River, a tributary of the Yangtze, and at least four other river tributaries flow through or around the city. Bumblebees - Baku, Azerbaijan The Bumblebees come from the city of Buzzpig on the eastern border of Buzznya, a region in Eastern Europe that borders Herbotamia to the south and Galakonur to the east. The city is located on the opposite side of the region to the city of Buzzkill, the hometown of the Hornets, with whom they have had a long-running rivalry since the beginning. The logic here is not as solid as I would like it to be. I couldn’t find anything that tied directly into Buzzpig. So I used Herbotamia (Mesopotamia - Iraq, see Minty Manians), Galakonour (Baikonur Cosmodrome, see Team Galactic), and that Buzznya is considered to be part of Europe to narrow down the general location as the Caucasus. Buzzpig is said to be to the east of Buzzkill; Baku, Azerbaijan is the only major city in the eastern most region of the Caucasus. Chocolatiers - Mt. Chimborazo, Ecuador The Chocolatiers come from villages around Mount Bonsel in South America, which are famous for their chocolate-based confections. In fact, it is the site of the world's biggest chocolate festival, held at the mountaintop village of Bonsel, known by tourists as the "Sweetest Place on Marblearth". Ecuador is the largest cocoa producing nation in South America, and supplies more than 60% of the human world’s ‘fine-flavour’ cocoa. Mt. Chimborazo is the most significant, and largest mountain peak in Ecuador’s cocoa growing region. Crazy Cat's Eyes - Casablanca, Morocco The Crazy Cat's Eyes come from the North African city of Felynia, located between two rivers, known for its prestige in film and entertainment. The sand dunes to the east are nicknamed the "Cat's Dunes". The only North African city that can claim to actually be located between two rivers is the Sudanese city of Khartoum; this is where the Blue Nile joins the White Nile to form the Nile proper. However, Khartoum isn’t known for it’s prestige in film and entertainment, the best North African city to lay claim to that title is Casablanca, Morocco. There are rivers to the north and south of Casablanca, but that would be true for all major cities if you looked far enough north and south; and few would claim rivers 70km and 90km away from the city as the defining characteristics of that city. The deciding factor was the sand dunes to the east, most of North Africa’s Ergs (dune seas) are located in Algeria, to the east of Morocco; Sudan’s only notable Erg is located to the west of Khartoum. Green Ducks - Birmingham, United Kingdom The Green Ducks are a British team [...] hometown of Bermenghank to [...]. Their name honors Hank Green, who helped Jelle's Marble Runs regain monetization. The Fandom lists the team as British. Birmingham was selected not only because of its similarity to Bermenghank, but also because Hank Green was born in Birmingham, Alabama. Hazers - Tianzi Mountains, China The Hazers come from an unspecified region within East Asia.[...] although in early 2019, a journalist discovered a Hazers souvenir shop south of Hunluen. [..] The only available hint for their place of origin so far is the fact that they do their training on a mountain top within an East Asian mountain range, beside Mount Huaze. Lots of guesswork here, given the mysterious nature of the team. The Tianzi Mountains lie south of Beijing (Hunluen) and are known for being covered in a sea of fog during certain months of the year. Hornets - Batumi, Georgia The Hornets come from the Eastern European city of Buzzkill, the westernmost city within the Buzznya region. I‘ve already decided the human world equivalent for the Buzzill region is the Caucasus (see Bumblebees), the westernmost city of that region is Batumi, Georgia. Indigo Stars - Rameswaram, India The Indigo Stars, previously known as the Purple Stars, come from South Asia, particularly the southern tip of the Indian peninsula and the nearby island of Isle Hyu, a tropical island known for its array of colored stars, a phenomenon unique to the island. [...] They all live in Bright Hyu City, a metropolis across from the island. Isle Hyu seems to be the Marble world equivalent of Sri Lanka, the island immediately south of the Indian peninsula, which is known for its Star Sapphires. Bright Hyu City, located in India, across from the island would then be Rameswaram. Jawbreakers - Buenos Aires, Argentina The Jawbreakers, or at least their current team captain Candy, come from the city of Jawnair, a South American city located on the southeastern coast. The four original members of the Jawbreakers,[...], were involved in professional marble wrestling. They competed in lucha marbre leagues, including the popular Extreme Lucha Marbre Championship. Southeastern coast of South America narrows it down to Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, or Chile. But the phrase “Lucha Marbre'' is Spanish, so that rules out Portugese speaking Brazil. Buenos Aires was selected because it’s name can be translated to “fair winds'' or “good airs”, and I’m linking the air portion of Jawair to the Aires portion of Buenos Aires. Jungle Jumpers - Amazon Rainforest The Jungle Jumpers come from Lewara, a village hidden beyond the South American rainforest, bordered by the Lewara River with a lush basin. South American rainforest was easy, the Amazon. Unfortunately, I have no way to narrow down the location more precisely; at no point is the Rainforest referred to as “Lewara” so the river Lewara could very well be not the Amazon River and could be one of the myriad of other rivers and tributaries flowing through the Amazon Rainforest. If anyone knows of a river and a village that share a name and are located in the general region of the Amazon Rainforest, please let me know in the comments. Kobalts - Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo The Kobalts come from the Central African city of Zuro [...]. They all studied chemistry [...], where they were experimenting on cobalt(II) oxide and alumina, which produces blue pigment. The Central African country of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is the human world’s largest cobalt producing nation, accounting for roughly 60% of global output (no other Central African nation makes the top 10 in Cobalt production). The name of the city, Zuro, seems to be the Marble world version of Zaire ( which was the name of the DRC from 1971 to 1997), so if we follow the Zuro=Zaire=Congo thread, we are looking for a a city with Congo in its name, the closest we get is the province of Kongo Central. However, none of the three major universities of the DRC are located in this region, the closest city with a university to the Kongo Central region is the capital of Kinshasa. Kinshasa used to be part of the same region as Kongo Central before it was separated into its own province, and the University of Kinshasa used to be part of the University of Zaire. There seem to be enough connections between Kinshasa and the name Zaire to suggest that Kinshasa is the human world equivalent of Zuro. Limers - Athens, Greece The Limers come from the Adriatic Coast in the south of Europe. To be exact, they come from Sotsevsa, a coastal city across the sea to the southeast of the Gulf of Tartufo, which is renowned for its ancient philosophical teachings, and for hosting the annual ancient marble racing tournament, the Syndesmarble. A city southeast of the Gulf of Tartufo (human world equivalent would be Gulf of Taranto) and on the Adriatic coast, that is renowned for its philosophical teachings, and for hosting an ancient sporting event. Sotseva seems to be the Marble world equivalent to Athens, Greece. Mellow Yellow - Atlanta, USA Mellow Yellow come from the North American city of Amalanta. The four original members of the team [...] first met while working for The Non-Descript Soda Company within the city's metropolitan area. Atlanta, Georgia is home to the headquarters of the Coca-Cola Company. Midnight Wisps - Helsinki, Finland The Midnight Wisps come from the Scandinavian taiga, east of the city of Helarve. Helarve is a city in Scandinavia in the region of Harva.[...] The city's most renowned landmark is the Helarve Clock Tower. The Scandinavian Taiga is an eco region situated in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia; of these countries, only Norway and Sweden are part of Scandinavia and I was initially going to place the team in Oslo because of the Aker Brygge Clock Tower. However, after comparing pictures of the Midnight Wisps’ Marbula One poster and pictures of the Helsinki Central Railway Station Clock Tower, I decided that the Clock Tower in the Midnight Wisps’ poster was too similar to the one in Helsinki to ignore the connection. Minty Maniacs - Iraq The Minty Maniacs are a marble sports team from Herbotamia, a region within Western Asia known for growing herbs and spices. It has also gained a reputation for being the "freshest" place in the world according to Atlas Marbura, an acclaimed travel guide. Some of the earliest recorded mentions of spice are from Sumerian clay tablets dating from the 3rd millennium BC. Sumer was a civilization in southern mesopotamia (Herbotamia) that is now part of Iraq. O'rangers - Orlando, United States The O'rangers are a team of five siblings from the southeast of North America. The O’Marbles run an orange farm on the southeast tip of North America, close to the city of Orlango, that also specializes in bull-wrangling and, notably, off-road racing. This was a real doozy, the O’rangers are always depicted wearing cowboy hats and using lassos. Their poster from Marbula One depicts them in a desert setting. None of this connects with Florida, but the text description from the Fandom and RetRollSpective clearly points towards Orlando, Florida; I flipped a coin and went with Orlando. Southeastern tip of North America points towards Florida, which also is largest Orange growing state in the US. Narrowed it down to Orlando based on the similarity in names and Daytona International Speedway being located just outside of Orlando. Oceanics - Dunedin, New Zealand The Oceanics come from the city of Dunduei in Oceania. ...they had been known as "Team Moana" (which means ocean in Maori)... The Maori language is spoken mainly in New Zealand. Picked Dunedin, mainly for the similarities in names. Pinkies - Osaka, Japan The Pinkies come from the city of Rosaka, located on an island off the coast of East Asia. It is home to one of the most advanced economies in the world, and is rich in both historical and natural significance. The city is named for the cherry blossom trees that turn rose-colored at the start of spring. They can be found across the island, including in the park surrounding Rosaka Castle and in the fields surrounding the Ampinktheater, the Pinkies' stadium. Everything points to Osaka, Japan. Island off the coast of East Asia - Taiwan or Japan. However, Japan is the nation known for its Cherry Blossom Festival. Osaka Castle (Rosaka Castle) is one of Japan’s most famous landmarks. Raspberry Racers - Arlije, Serbia The Raspberry Racers come from the city of Rubow in Central Europe, which is renowned as the raspberry capital of the world, as seen with the many raspberry farms within its vicinity. [...] they developed a rivalry with the Limers, who hail from the city of Sotsevsa, which is in fact not quite far away from Rubow. Poland is the human world’s second largest grower of Raspberries and the largest in Central Europe, so at first glance that would seem to place the Raspberry Racers in Poland, but the fact Rubow is stated to be not far from Sotsevsa (Athens) made me look for a location that fit the description and was closer to Athens. Serbia is the largest raspberry growing nation after Poland in Europe, and is fairly close to Athens. Arlije is the epicenter of Raspberry growing in Serbia. Rojo Rollers - Mexico City, Mexico The Rojo Rollers come from the outskirts of Numerun, located exactly in the middle of Central America. It is known as the “newest old” city in the world, having been settled for over a millennium before settlers from across the ocean rediscovered it about five hundred years ago. The settlers shared goods from their side of the world, which led to growth for the city. It is now one of the most diverse, economically advanced, and intellectual cities in the world. We’re looking for a diverse and economically advanced city in the middle of Central America which predates Columbus. Mexico City fits this description best. Savage Speeders - Marseille, France The Savage Speeders come from three Western European cities – Accellaise on the southern coast, Pace on the same coastline to the east, and the capital city of Vellis, each of which is individually known for its cultural, artistic, and economic significance. Vellis is a capital city in Europe known for its cultural, artistic and economical significance. [...] It is also the home of Le Tour de Vellis, a marble marathon that goes through the city and across the nation. They purchased a stadium in Accellaise and named it Le Course de Sauvage. Tour de Vellis seems to be the Marble world version of the Tour de France, suggesting Vellis is Paris, the capital of France. Looking for a pair of major cities on the southern coast of France then suggests Accellaise and Pace are Marseille and Nice respectively. Shining Swarm - Freetown, Sierra Leone The Shining Swarm come from the city of Galeem on the West African coast. It is located on a peninsula that juts out from the mountainous mainland, at the mouth of the Silver River. The city is named for the shining waters that surround the city. The West African countries of Senegal, Nigeria,Cameroon, Sierra Leone, and Guinea all have inhabited peninsulas. But only Freetown Peninsula in Sierra Leone has mountains in the region and sits at the mouth of a river. Snowballs - Halifax, Canada The Snowballs come from the small city of Hailfern in the northeast of North America. When the Snowballs' team members were young, Hailfern was but a village known for its ski slopes, and nothing else.[...] It remains a tourist destination for marbles who live in the southeast of North America. Halifax isn’t renowned for its ski slopes; but the names of the cities in this region of the Marble world seem to be extremely similar to the human world’s Canadian cities, for example Snoronto/Toronto and BlancouveVancouver. Following this pattern in names suggests that Halifern’s human world equivalent would have a very similar name, so Halifax it is. Team Galactic - Baikonur, Kazhakstan Team Galactic come from the Western Asian city of Galakonur, renowned for its scientific advancement, especially in astronomy. The four original members of the team met while working at the Galactic National Space Center, the world's largest space center, located in the heart of the city. Baikonur Cosmodrome is the human world's largest operational space launch facility and matches the description of Galakonur. Team Momo - Kathmandu, Nepal Team Momo come from the mountainous region of Om in Southeast Asia. The four original members of the team, Mo, Momo, Momomo, and Momomomo, all hail from villages around the region's capital city of Om, one of the oldest cities in the world. In the human world momos are native to Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, the north Indian region of Ladakh, and northeast Indian regions of Sikkim, Assam, and Arunachal Pradesh, and the east Indian region of Darjeeling. Of these regions, only Nepal’s capital Kathmandu was established as a major settlement prior to 0 CE in the human world. Team Primary - Nijmegan, Netherlands Team Primary come from the cities of Van Gotterdam and Knikkegen in Central Europe. Siblings Prim and Mary grew up in the center of Van Gotterdam, which has the reputation as the art capital of the world. Rima grew up in Knikkegen, a city southeast of Van Gotterdam [...]. Knikkegen is a city in Central Europe, southeast of Van Gotterdam. It is the hometown of Rima from Team Primary. It is also the city where brothers Jelle and Dion Bakker are based. It is widely considered by fans that Van Gotterdam and Knikkegen are the Marble world versions of Rotterdam and Nijmegen, respectively. The human world’s Jelle Baker currently resides in Nijmegen. Thunderbolts - Northern Europe The Thunderbolts come from the city of Thorston, maybe in the north of Europe. Arguably the most mysterious of all Marble League teams [...]. Another mysterious team with very little info. All we know is that they are from the north of Europe and somewhere with Viking influences given the name of their city “Thorston”. After a few days of research I couldn’t find anything more conclusive. Turtle Sliders - Sydney, Australia The Turtle Sliders started their marble racing career in the Seven Seas Circuit, racing against other teams from Oceania such as the Oceanics. The Seven Seas Circuit is a marble sports competition based in Oceania. The Turtle Sliders began training that fall in Aslipi, [...] Crush, who was recruited from Aslipi [...]. Dash, who was recruited from Jamarbla [...]. Splint, [...] was living in Mellacai [...]. I couldn’t find anything in the current fandom or retrollspective pages to narrow down the location, but a previous edit of the Fandom page mentions their base city of Aslipi as being the marble world equivalent to Sydney.
