  • In a shocking turn of events, NWA-TNA announced last week that Vince Russo was joining the promotion, less than 3 weeks after he returned to WWE. Russo's return to WWE was announced as joining the company as part of the creative team on 6/20, but after his first creative meeting, he was demoted to consultant and was paid $1,000 a week to sit at home and send in written critiques of the weekly TV shows. Russo didn't have a contract and it's no secret that his return was deeply unpopular in the locker room and even more unpopular in the office among those who still resent him for how he left in 1999. Russo has told friends that he feels like WWE is a mess and it won't change because Vince McMahon won't remove Stephanie McMahon from her position as head writer. Russo recently sold his record store in Atlanta and was planning to move back up north (he never liked living in the south, but moved there when he went to WCW) but he hasn't moved yet. According to TNA sources, Russo will essentially help with production and writing of the shows. TNA is way understaffed when it comes to people with experience producing live shows like this. Russo was introduced to the staff on 7/9 and, much like in WWE, there were a lot of unhappy people who weren't the least bit happy to see him. He's not exactly the most well-liked guy in the business. But he's still good friends with Jeff Jarrett and Russo had already been contributing ideas and storylines for this company before the brief WWE return anyway. At the time, Russo's involvement was being kept secret because of his lawsuit with Hulk Hogan. AOL/Time Warner was representing him (since the incident happened in WCW). They only agreed to represent him as long as he didn't go work for another wrestling promotion. When the WWE offer came along, Russo managed to get AOL/Time Warner to drop that stipulation, which allowed him to go work for WWE. And now, subsequently, TNA. The lawsuit with Hogan is still ongoing and AOL/Time Warner's lawyers are still repping Russo.
  • Kevin Nash will be out of action for god knows how long after tearing his left quad in a match on Raw. It was Nash's first match back since suffering a bicep tear back in March. After tagging in, he tore his quad on the first move. It's the same injury Triple H suffered that kept him out for over 7 months and there's no way that Nash—who's 10 years older than Triple H—is about to put himself through the same grueling rehab that Triple H did. Triple H moved to Birmingham and lived there 24/7 doing Dr. James Andrews full-time rehab program. Nash has kids and a family and shit, he's probably not moving to Birmingham so he can do rehab 3 times a day. Dave suspects this is gonna take a bit longer for Nash (ended up being around 9 months). The injury occurred in a 10-man tag match that Nash wasn't even scheduled for until he found out the day of the show. Nash's original return to the ring was supposed to be on house shows later that week. The match was planned and designed to get Nash over as a huge monster and build him into one of the top 5 or so major main event stars in the company, because the plan was to do Nash vs. Triple H at Summerslam in one of the top matches (with Rock/Brock and Hogan/Vince penciled in as the other top matches). But as soon as Nash tagged in, he kicked Booker T, but then tripped over him when trying to step over Booker and collapsed, grabbing his thigh and screaming in pain. The match fell apart and nobody knew what to do until Shawn Michaels (not even in the match, just outside the ring) took charge and started telling guys what to do and calling spots. He improvised a superkick on Booker T and told Big Show to chokeslam him to finish it. The next day, Nash underwent surgery from Dr. James Andrews, who has done several previous surgeries on Nash (knee, bicep, elbow, and more). All in all, not a bump gone wrong or anything, just a freak accident.
WATCH: Kevin Nash tears his quad
  • Bret Hart has written a new column in the Calgary Sun, his first since suffering his recent stroke. Dave copies and pastes the whole column here, but I'll just cliff notes it: Bret is doing as well as can be expected. Made a stupid mistake by bike riding without a helmet because he'd been too lazy to fix the broken chin-strap. Hit a pothole, crashed his bicycle, hit his head, believes he suffered a stroke on impact. Was unable to move the left side of his body. Used his cell phone to call for help. Thanks fans, doctors, nurses, wife, kids, family, friends, etc. for being there for him. Promises he'll recover. Dave says Bret's progress has been slow but steady over the past week. He can take small steps with help but is mostly still confined to a bed and wheelchair and is only just now getting feeling back in his left leg. He's spending his time doing therapy and working on his autobiography which is apparently already 960 pages deep and he's only up to the late-80s so far. Doctors were surprised Bret was able to work on his book since they expected him to have memory issues or problems writing due to the stroke, but he has neither. Dave says Bret has talked about dividing the book up into 3 parts and releasing them that way due to the length (it only ended up being around 600 pages so he must have had a merciless editor).
  • WWE reached an out-of-court settlement this week with the Parents Television Council which will award WWE $3.5 million and a public apology from the PTC, as well as a promise that they will leave WWE alone. As part of the settlement, PTC agreed to never have any involvement with WWE business in the future, to never urge boycotts of WWE or of WWE sponsors. PTC head L. Brent Bozell had to issue a public apology to the WWE and Vince McMahon and the apology must be posted on the PTC's website home page for 6 months. They also must remove all other content from its website relating to WWE, its advertisers, or the accusations that WWE held any responsibility in the deaths of several children. Also, if WWE decides to make him do so, they can request Bozell meet with WWE advertisers personally to further explain his apology, and he'll be required to do it. Long story short: the PTC got absolutely fucking SPANKED here. The PTC will not be paying the settlement out of pocket, it will be paid by insurance, which is the only thing that is allowing them to even stay in business because without them, that $3.5 million would have killed the organization. The case was expected to go to trial in September and WWE was seeking $55 million in damages. And they likely would have won easily, so the PTC didn't have much of a choice here. They had to settle.
  • In addition to the above, attorney Jim Lewis (who represented Lionell Tate, one of the kids who was convicted of murdering a young girl) must also publicly apologize for claiming that Tate's actions were inspired by what he saw watching wrestling. Dave recaps the history of the PTC going after WWF at the height of its Attitude Era success, crusading against WWF by targeting their sponsors. At first, the PTC made some valid points about some of the extremely questionable content WWF was producing. Problem is, then they started outright lying and their claims got more and more outlandish, and Bozell turned it into a personal mission to take down Vince McMahon and the WWE, to the point that they crossed over into libel and defamation. They also used fake and misleading statistics when pressuring sponsors. All of this led to WWE taking them to court and mollywhopping dat ass. (I've actually done a lot of research on this WWE/PTC case for some other thing I'm writing and it's a really fun case to read about. WWE's past is pretty indefensible sometimes, but Bozell was out of his mind obsessed with destroying them. He's a hardcore right-wing conservative and his battle with WWE was literally a moral and religious crusade to him. To this day, I bet it eats Bozell alive that he got owned so thoroughly and had to release such a humbling apology. And oh, bet your ass, we're about to read that apology):
  • Bozell's and PTC's public apology on their website reads the following:
`Media Research Center (MRC), Parents Television Council (PTC), Dr. Delores Tucker, Mark Honig and I have in the past made statements regarding so-called wrestling deaths — children killed by other children alleged to be mimicking “professional wrestling” moves they saw on television.
We made such statements to members of MRC and PTC, the media, advertisers on World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) SmackDown! program, retailers that sell WWE-related toys and merchandise, public officials and the public.
MRC and PTC also produced a videotape as part of a fundraising campaign in connection with its “National Campaign to Clean Up TV Now!”, which advanced the notion that the murder of Tiffany Eunick was caused by the influence of professional wrestling on Lionel Tate.
The videotape included interviews with Lionel Tate’s lawyer advancing the notion that the murder of Tiffany Eunick, the victim, was directly caused by the impact that professional wrestling had on Lionel Tate.
We based our statements on media reports and source information. We now believe, based on extensive investigation and facts which have come to light since making those statements that it was wrong for MRC, PTC, their spokespersons and myself to have said anything that could be construed as blaming WWE or any of its programs for the deaths of the children.
Simply put, it was premature to reach that conclusion when we did, and there is now ample evidence to show that conclusion was incorrect. I now believe that professional wrestling played no role in the murder of Tiffany Eunick, which was a part of our “Clean Up TV Now!” campaign and am equally convinced that it was incorrect and wrong to have blamed WWE or any of its programs for the deaths of the other children.
Because of our statements, PTC, MRC and the WWE have been in litigation since November 2000. WWE vigorously advanced its position that neither it, nor “professional wrestling” led to these deaths.
WWE also contended that MRC, PTC, their spokespersons and I had misrepresented the number of advertisers who withdrew support from WWE’s SmackDown! television program after receiving communications from the PTC, some of which regrettably connected the WWE and SmackDown! to the deaths of children.
As such, WWE exercised its right to initiate this litigation, during which facts came to light that prompted me to make this statement.
By this retraction, I want to be clear that WWE was correct in pointing out that various statements made by MRC, PTC and me were inaccurate concerning the identity and number of WWE SmackDown! advertisers who withdrew support from the program. Many of the companies we stated had “withdrawn” or pulled their support had never, in fact, advertised on SmackDown! nor had any plan to advertise on SmackDown!
Again, we regret this error and retract any such misleading statements.
Finally, concerning the statements about child wrestling deaths, it was wrong to have stated or implied that WWE or any of its programs caused these tragic deaths. Specifically concerning the Lionel Tate case, recent developments lead us to believe that others and we were given, and relied upon, false information provided by parties close to the case.
The information that we were given and relied upon may have been designed to make a national example of the Florida murder trial, pinning the blame on WWE.
For example, we were told by a source that Lionel Tate was watching a WWE program when he assaulted Tiffany Eunick. In fact, Lionel Tate was watching the “Flintstones” and a cartoon entitled “Cow and Chicken.” We were also told, by a source, that Lionel Tate killed Tiffany Eunick while executing a wrestling move unique to a WWE character called the “Stone Cold Stunner”.
We have since learned that this was not true, nor was there any evidence that it was true. It is now well documented that after the Tate trial concluded, the presiding Judge said it was “inconceivable” that Tiffany Eunick’s injuries were caused by Lionel Tate mimicking wrestling moves.
Indeed, since the trial ended, Lionel Tate’s new lawyers have filed court papers in which they admit that the “wrestling defense” was, in their words, “bogus.”
Given these facts, WWE was within its rights to be angry at the MRC, PTC, their spokespersons and I for contacting WWE’s advertisers to go beyond complaining about WWE content but passing along accusations which we now know were false. Because I feel a simple retraction is not sufficient, I have personally extended my apology to Vince McMahon and the WWE on behalf of MRC, PTC, Dr. Tucker, Mr. Honig and me.
Through this letter, I now make this apology public and specifically directed to the advertising community that has in the past, is currently or may in the future consider advertising or sponsoring WWE programming.
The PTC can have its concern with the content of WWE’s television programming – though these concerns have been reduced significantly over the past years as a reflection of WWE’s changed standards. But nowhere in that debate, including in the correspondence and statements to the advertising community, should there have been any discussion of “wrestling” deaths.
I regret this happening. It wasn’t fair to WWE.
And I say this emphatically: Please disregard what others and we have said in the past about the Florida “wrestling” death. Neither “wrestling” in general, nor WWE specifically, had anything to do with it. Of that I am certain.’
  • PRIDE and K-1 announced their plans to put on the biggest event in MMA history, with a joint show in August, with hopes to draw 100,000 people to the Tokyo National Soccer Stadium. The original plan was for the show to take place on Aug. 29th, but they changed it to the 28th to avoid going head-to-head with a major NJPW show at Buddokan Hall which would have drawn many of the same fans they're trying to get. However, this is during monsoon season in Japan and it's an outdoor stadium, so just in case, they've got the stadium on reserve for several days in the event the scheduled date gets rained out. Here's the problem: this stadium only holds 60,000 for soccer games, so even if you add ground seating, realistically, you can only pack probably 80,000 at most. So the claim that they're going to draw 100,000 fans is "just as legitimate as the 93,173 number that WWE uses for its record." Dave notes that the real record for biggest paid attendance for a wrestling show is Summerslam 92 with the Hart/Bulldog match drawing 78,927 confirmed paid. But whatever. The plan for this show is for it to be an 8-9 match card, with every fight being dream matches featuring big name fighters. Rules for each fight will be unique and it will air on prime time TV in Japan. The main event will be Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Mirko Cro Cop, plus Dave breaks down a bunch of other planned or rumored match-ups.
  • Dave looks at some business numbers and it ain't good news. Just to give one example, WWE's average attendance-per-show was 4,711 during the month of June, which is the lowest month for attendance since Feb. 1997. And most of the tickets for those shows were sold before Austin walked out. So once fans realize that Austin really is gone (at least for now) and not coming back anytime soon, the coming months could look even more dire for ticket sales.
  • AAA's Triplemania X event took place last week (again) and ended with Octagon unmasking Pentagon in a mask vs. mask match. I only mention this because there have been lots of "Pentagon" characters over the years in AAA and later the indies in Mexico, portrayed by different people. But this match ended up being the last time the Pentagon gimmick would be used in AAA for the next decade.....until AEW star Pentagon Jr. began using the gimmick in 2012.
  • Keiji Muto is apparently trying to shorten what's left of his career by being a complete madman. Muto is already beyond banged up, with knees that should have retired him years ago. He has no business working a full schedule at this stage in his career, but he's AJPW's biggest star and best draw, so he is continuing to work every show. But now he's taking it a step further. Muto will be working 3 separate matches in one night for AJPW's upcoming Budokan Hall show. He's doing the Mick Foley gimmick, where he will wrestle under a different gimmick for each match. He'll be wrestling as Muto, Great Muta, and Kokushi Muso (the gimmick he uses only when he teams with Hakushi and paints his body in similar fashion). So yeah.
  • Vader was arrested in his hometown of Boulder, CO earlier this month for allegedly spitting at a police officer, threatening the officers with rocks, resisting arrest, drinking and driving, careless driving, and leaving the scene of an accident. It ended up taking 8 officers and 2 police dogs on the scene before Vader agreed to be arrested peacefully, and they used multiple sets of handcuffs. It started when Vader crashed his van into some bushes, but then backed out, left the scene, and drove home (about a block away). Police came to his home and found Vader severely intoxicated and barely able to stand. At some point, Vader told the police, "I will and can kick all of your asses! Let's fight!" The police brought in the police dogs, but Vader still wouldn't back down and threatened to kill the dogs if they came at him. Then he picked up rocks and threatened to throw them and spit at one of the cops, but missed. The other cops showed up and they eventually calmed him down and arrested him. According to records, Vader has 2 prior DUI arrests in Boulder. This all occurred just days before he was scheduled to leave for Japan for the latest NOAH tour but he still went and is over there working shows now.
  • Kenta Kobashi finally made his real in-ring return after more than a year out of action (aside from the one comeback match where he re-injured himself for 4 more months). Kobashi has been told in no uncertain terms that one more knee injury and he's done for good. Dave figures that knee injury is inevitable. Kobashi is working opening matches all week, teaming with the rookies and doing hot tag spots for now.
  • Former IWGP champion Kazuyuki Fujita is scheduled to make his return to NJPW next week after being out of action the past 7 months with a torn Achilles that caused him to vacate the IWGP title. He's going to continue doing shoot fights as well.
  • Manami Toyota, arguably (is it even arguable) the greatest female wrestler of all time, announced she is leaving All Japan Women and jumping ship to Gaea. Toyota has spent her entire 15 year career working for AJW so this is a surprise and a pretty big blow to AJW.
  • Jesse Ventura was rushed to the hospital this week with a blood clot in his lung after complaining of chest pains. He's now in stable condition, on blood thinners, and should be okay. Ventura has a history of blood clots and a pulmonary embolism in 1984 took him out of action right before he was about to start a lengthy (and surely lucrative) feud with Hulk Hogan. He eventually returned and wrestled for another year, mostly in tag teams and such, before retiring due to the health issues.
  • Dave has some anecdotal evidence of how TNA's viewership numbers are going and it ain't pretty. Between week 1 and week 2, there was a full 50% drop in responses to the reader poll Dave put out on the show. That was to be expected. But the drop from Week 2 to Week 3 was another 41% drop from that. So we're only a few weeks in and it appears this company is already hemorrhaging viewers. Internally, TNA is basically flaunting the preliminary numbers they got from the PPV providers that show they're doing big buyrates. Dave feels sorry for them because he's been following the PPV industry since it began and the preliminary numbers from the providers are ALWAYS wrong and ALWAYS substantially higher than what the real number ends up being. Dave basically says TNA is getting excited over fake numbers and if they're basing their future on what they expect to pull in financially, they're going to be VERY disappointed a few months from now when the real numbers are revealed and those PPV checks end up being way less than they're expecting. TNA's weekly production costs are around $200,000, which means they need at least 50,000 buys per week just to break even on the production costs (and that's not counting all the other costs like paying the wrestlers, advertising, etc. that I'm sure they'd like to have some extra money for). So we're only a few weeks in and, yet again, this whole project still does not seem sustainable.
  • Notes from TNA Weekly PPV: this was by far the weakest of the 3 shows so far. Dave thinks they're trying too hard to copy much of WWE's formula, rather than focusing on what makes them different or what they can do better. They were in Nashville this week, with about 2,000 fans (1,100 paid, the rest freebies). There's a lot of young talent here and they have potential, but so many of them aren't ready for the national stage and it showed. They did almost nothing to promote or build for next week's show, which is a killer when you're depending on people to pay for it every week. Dave thinks it felt like an episode of WCW Thunder. More production mistakes (wrong names on the screen during introductions, etc.). They announced Japanese wrestler Takao Omori and Christopher Daniels will be there next week, but made no effort to educate fans on who those people are or why anyone should care. Monty Brown made his debut and Dave is impressed, since he looks good, was athletic, and has some good mic skills and he thinks TNA did a better job of debuting and protecting him than WWE usually does with new guys. Another angle with NASCAR driver Hermie Sadler and it sucked, leading Dave to joke that Sterling Martin carried their tag team last time. 6 matches into the show and Dave says not a single one of them has even reached the 1-star mark. Thankfully, AJ Styles and David Young saved the show with a 2.25 star classic. Brian Christopher turned heel on Scott Hall, leading Hall to do a stretcher job in what was a pretty good angle but, ya know....it's Jarrett and Brian Christopher.
  • Various other TNA news and notes: they've been taking out radio ads to promote the shows, with the tagline, "If you're tired of that other wrestling..." Dave is flabbergasted that TNA brought Jackie Fargo in for the debut shows (in Huntsville, where he wasn't really a big name) but didn't use him at all in Nashville this week, since he's the biggest drawing star in the city's history. Vince Russo and Disco Inferno were backstage at the show. TNA's new backstage interviewer Goldylocks was in the Los Angeles airport during the shooting there last week that left 2 people dead and several others injured. She was even interviewed by the local news about it.
  • More fun political games in WWE. Paul Heyman and Pat Patterson came up with an angle to continue John Cena's momentum following his debut match with Kurt Angle, in which Cena would slap Vince McMahon in the face and then have a match with Jericho in which he would almost win and Jericho would have to cheat to get the pin. You know, make him look strong in defeat kinda thing, same as the Angle match. Well, Triple H apparently went to Vince and convinced him to nix the angle, saying nobody should be laying hands on Vince right now since they're building to Hogan vs. Vince at Summerslam. This turned into a major issue backstage because most of the locker room doesn't like the "NWO group" (basically, Nash, X-Pac, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H, even though he's not part of the group on TV). The usual Kliq stuff. Some of the wrestlers said that everyone can see that Cena has major star potential and they feel like Triple H cutting him off at the knees like this is more about protecting his own spot. They compromised and had Cena slap Jericho instead (Dave says it was a hell of a slap, and on his podcast, Bruce Prichard has told this story. Apparently Jericho insisted that Cena really lay in the slap to make it look good. And so Cena damn near killed him). Patterson in particular was furious that his idea got scrapped and told everyone who would listen about it, feeling the original angle would have gotten people talking about Cena (something they haven't been able to do with any of the other news guys) and felt the compromise angle didn't really have the same effect. Dave notes there's been a lot of resentment towards Nash and Michaels because they're getting some of the biggest pushes in the company right now despite not working full-time like everyone else. And Triple H is going to always be a target of it because of his real-life relationship with Stephanie McMahon. And, of course, X-Pac is basically protected by all his friends and has gotten out of doing multiple jobs in recent weeks when Nash or Michaels complained on his behalf. For what it's worth though, Hulk Hogan is said to be the total opposite, doing exactly what is asked of him and working as hard as he's capable of doing, has had no problem doing jobs or putting anyone over, and is pretty much avoiding all this Kliq drama. So at least one of these guys is redeeming their reputation here a little (just don't turn any hidden cameras on when he's having a conversation).
  • Chris Jericho has agreed to a new WWE deal, but hasn't yet signed the contract and is actually working without one at the moment. His previous deal expired a week or two ago and he's been hammering out details with WWE ever since. With declining business and no real competition to use as leverage, Jericho's negotiating power was obviously not great. But he is one of the company's key guys and word is Jericho considers the offer "fair, under the circumstances." So probably not as good as he was hoping, but that's what happens when you work for a monopoly.
  • Notes from Raw: "one of those nights best left forgotten," Dave says, as WWE's 2002 continues to suck. Booker T cut a promo challenging the NWO, but Eddie Guerrero answered the challenge instead, "I guess since they could get him to do a job on TV without complaining," Dave quips. And indeed, Booker won. Chris Benoit was embroiled in the beginnings of an angle with Austin and Flair, but when Austin left, everything got changed, and now Benoit is feuding with Bubba Ray Dudley, which is quite the demotion. Shawn Michaels cut a promo talking about the Kliq days, full of insider references that were lost on most of the crowd and it was so quiet that you could even hear one heckler yell, "Get to the point!" Dave doesn't understand why they're fondly reminiscing about a time that was by far the darkest, lowest period in the last 30 years of the business, but whatever. William Regal lost to Jeff Hardy, leading Dave to wonder whatever happened to the Regal/Molly Holly storyline that has seemingly been dropped with no explanation. And, of course, the Kevin Nash injury to end the show.
  • Oh yeah....and then there's this. Raw also featured a match with Trish Stratus & Bradshaw vs. Chris Nowinski & Jackie Gayda, which Dave calls "the longest 3:14 in pro wrestling history." Basically every spot that Gayda and Stratus did was completely blown, some so badly that Dave can't even figure out what they were trying to do. Nowinski and Bradshaw brawled into the crowd. "I think they were running out as fast as they could to preserve whatever reputation they have left." Jim Ross on commentary used the dreaded "bowling shoe ugly" phrase which is JR Code for "holy shit this is a bad match." The ending was completely botched but this time, Gayda at least had the sense to realize that they botched the finish so bad that she probably shouldn't eat a pin from it, so she tried to kick out instead. But Trish and the referee didn't get the memo and so the ref counted the 3 anyway, which made the whole thing look even worse. Crowd booed this like crazy and Dave says it was clear to everybody that Gayda has no business on Raw yet, she's still waaaaaaay too green (If you haven't seen it, this match is legendarily bad and is widely known simply as "That Jackie Gayda Match."
WATCH: That Jackie Gayda match
  • Notes from Smackdown: on the complete opposite end of the spectrum, this was a great show. Lillian Garcia singing "America the Beautiful" was interrupted by Team Canada, who got the most heel heat Dave has seen anywhere in wrestling in a long time. They're trying to redo the 1997 Hart Foundation/Canada angle, except this time, it's Christian, Test, and Lance Storm. Whether it will be successful or not depends on who the babyface is. In 1997, it was Steve Austin. If they pick Rikishi or somebody here in 2002, it's not gonna get over near as big. Batista working tag matches is the best thing for him, because he's looking a lot better lately while being able to hide his weaknesses. The Cena/Jericho angle was good (though probably not as good as the original idea would have been). During the Billy and Chuck segment, Chuck had a line about being tired from walking all day on Sunday. The joke wasn't explained, so if you didn't get it: that recent Sunday was the day of a lot of major national gay pride parades in major cities around the country. And Hogan and Edge won the tag titles in a fun match that the crowd was nuclear hot for.
WATCH: Edge & Hogan win the WWE tag team titles
  • Chris Benoit didn't do any actual matches in developmental before his return, he was just there training and taking bumps, so the matches he's been doing on TV the last week or two really were his first actual matches since the neck surgery. Benoit is said to be in less pain than he expected to be and is hopeful to get back to his old self.
  • Dave saw a recent picture of Rey Mysterio and he's worried. Mysterio has bulked up waaaaay too much for his frame. Dave compares him to The Patriot, another masked wrestler who's career was pretty much ended due to repeated muscle tears from being too steroided up. With Mysterio's size, there's zero reason or advantage to him being so muscular and it's only going to increase his risk of getting injured, especially when he starts working that 200-dates-per-year WWE schedule (yeah, this proved to be pretty accurate. Despite the success he had during that time, the next decade or so of Mysterio's career is pretty much injury after injury after injury).
  • Latest on Goldberg is that he has no plans to do anything in wrestling until later this year, if at all. Dave thinks that's smart, since WWE business looks like it's going to keep plummeting, at which time they'll be even more desperate for him to come in. Dave thinks Goldberg could probably command a pretty large offer to come in around the beginning of 2003 and build to a big Wrestlemania match (close, but not quite what happens).
  • Various WWE notes: Triple H has been out of action since King of the Ring after getting elbow surgery. He's been back in Birmingham again, doing 24/7 rehab. Stephanie McMahon hasn't been working in the WWE offices for the last few weeks because she's been with him. Stacy Keibler asked for time off because she's burned out and was replaced with Dawn Marie for all her scheduled bra and panties matches on house shows this week.
  • During the Sunday Night Heat/Raw tapings, someone held up a sign that said "Big Show is not over" when Big Show was out during Heat. Show saw the sign, flipped the guy off, and pointed it out to security. They tried to get the sign but I guess the guy holding it ran away and actually escaped them. Later during the night, when Big Show was out again (this time on Raw), the sign got held up again. Show once again saw it, once again pointed it out to security, and this time, they jumped the rail and caught the guy and took his sign. Imagine being that sensitive.
NEXT WEDNESDAY: Eric Bischoff debuts in WWE, X-Pac suspended, more on Russo in TNA, and more...

2020.07.27 20:00 __justsayin__ Transat A.T. Inc. delays closing $720-million takeover by Air Canada

Transat A.T. Inc. has again delayed the closing deadline of its takeover by Air Canada, amid mounting questions about the future of the $720-million deal.
The agreement approved by Transat shareholders in August allows either side to delay three times the date on which either side can walk away if the deal has not been completed.
Transat said on Monday it has delayed the closing date of the deal until August 27, after pushing it back until July 27, as both sides await approvals by Canadian and European Union regulators.
“Since the European Union’s decision is now expected between September 30 and November 19, and there is no defined date for Canada’s decision, we intend to use as many of those one-month periods as necessary,” said Christophe Hennebelle, a spokesman for Montreal-based Transat.
Transat’s share price fell by more than 2 per cent to about $5.30 on Monday on the Toronto Stock Exchange, well below the $18 Air Canada agreed to pay. The shares plunged in March as the COVID-19 pandemic spurred governments to close borders and advise against travel.
Transat halted operations and laid off much of its workforce in response, but recently resumed a small number of flights.
Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick confirmed in an email the date has been extended but did not address questions about how the pandemic has changed the business case for the deal.
Transat shareholders in August approved Air Canada’s takeover, after the larger carrier raised its offer from $13 a share amid pressure from Transat shareholders and would-be rival bidders. Transat’s updated fleet of fuel-efficient Airbus planes made it an attractive target for Air Canada, which found itself facing the prospect of stiffer competition from WestJet, recently purchased by deep-pocketed Onex Corp.
The combined companies would control about 60 per cent of transatlantic traffic and 45-per-cent of seats to Caribbean holiday destinations, warned Canada’s Competition Bureau, which said the combination of the two companies would limit travellers’ choices and drive up air fares. The Competition Bureau’s report and an assessment by Transport Canada will inform a decision on the merger by the Canadian government.
As it launched a closer study of the deal, the European Union’s competition regulator said in May the takeover could limit competition on 33 routes, and that Calgary-based WestJet Airlines is too small to present much of an alternative.
Air Canada has laid off 20,000 people – more than half its workforce – and cancelled much of its schedule. The airline recently added some routes, but has ceased serving several communities. Calin Rovinescu, Air Canada’s chief executive officer, has been a vocal proponent for opening borders and lifting travel restrictions, saying the rules are hampering the industry’s recovery. The airlines point to heightened efforts to prevent the virus from spreading, including mandatory masks in airports and on planes, and heightened sanitation efforts.
However the Canadian government has not withdrawn its travel quarantine requirements and advisory against non-essential travel, saying the measures are needed to limit the spread of the deadly virus.

2020.07.07 22:20 HarvosMom Down to handful of active rigs, Canada's oil and gas drillers face permanent contraction

https://calgaryherald.com/pmn/business-pmn/down-to-handful-of-active-rigs-canadas-oil-and-gas-drillers-face-permanent-contraction-2/wcm/ea3a34a9-675a-4970-8b72-1c31fb36509e/
Down to handful of active rigs, Canada's oil and gas drillers face permanent contraction
Reuters
Publishing date:Jul 06, 2020 • Last Updated 9 hours ago
WINNIPEG — Canada’s drilling rig count, a bellwether of the oil and gas industry’s growth, has plummeted far below previous records, raising risks that much of the country’s equipment will permanently fall out of service.
Just 18 rigs were active last week in the world’s fourth-largest oil-producing country, a fraction of even the depressed levels of a year ago, according to Baker Hughes data.
The fleet looks likely to shrink 25% in the next year from the current 500, as companies decide against costly recertifications of equipment, said Kevin Neveu, chief executive of Precision Drilling Corp, one of Canada’s biggest drillers.
The Canadian energy industry has struggled for years, and its services sector, which drills and maintains wells, may face a longer recovery than rivals in the United States, where companies say capital is more accessible. A service sector contraction would limit any industry rebound once the coronavirus pandemic wanes and oil demand returns.
“This is the hardest sharpest downturn the oil services industry has ever faced,” Neveu said in an interview. “It’s worse in Canada because it was already at the tail end of a four-year downturn.”
Just six oil drilling rigs were active as of July 2, along with 12 gas rigs for a total of 18 – compared with 120 rigs a year earlier, according to Baker Hughes, a U.S. service company that has conducted such counts since 1975.
It marked a rare week-to-week increase from 13 rigs, reflecting the seasonal summer pickup when the ground dries from spring snow melt.
Most of Canada’s oil comes from the oil sands, long-life facilities that do not require regular drilling like shale or conventional production.
Recertifying a drilling rig can cost as much as C$2 million ($1.48 million), depending on the size, Neveu said. Those that are decertified may be scavenged for parts or auctioned.
More of Calgary-based Precision’s business is likely to tilt to the United States in coming years, where it expects a quicker rebound, Neveu said.
With fewer wells drilled, work has also dried up for companies that service them.
Roll’n Oilfield Industries has serviced wells since 1977, but has never seen business this slow, said President Brad Rowbotham. The company is operating just 20% of its rigs, forcing it to eliminate jobs and cut salaries.
“There’s days when there’s none working,” he said.
Two of Roll’n’s rigs are overdue for recertification, but the company has parked them instead. It has no plans to sell them because sale prices have plummeted.
In Edson, Alberta, hopes that the oil town of 8,400 people could reverse its downturn as work begins on expanding the Trans Mountain pipeline, have been dashed.
“With less drilling happening, coupled with COVID-19, we see lots of empty hotel rooms and empty restaurants,” said Mayor Kevin Zahara.
Contraction of the drilling and service industry would make it difficult for oil and gas producers to boost output once the industry rebounds, said Darren Gee, chief executive of Peyto Exploration & Development Corp, one of a handful of producers still actively hiring drillers.
“There is a symbiotic relationship,” he said. “We have to keep service companies alive or the producers eventually die.”

2020.05.18 20:22 heavyonthesos67 COVID-19 Updates: Food Processing Edition

Hello everyone! I got a few encouraging replies about a food processing specific thread, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I more than welcome anyone outside of the meat processing realm to provide any updates they might have (since my career is within the meat processing world, some of my links will be more meat focused.) Bear with me, as this is my first mega post!
I'll try to include industry links and mainstream news links. If there's anything that has a paywall, leave me a comment and I can post a TL;DR version! A lot of what I'm finding will be US specific, but I'll try to include international news as I see it. Also, if there are repeats of things found throughout supplychain, I apologize.
If you are in the US and are looking for a local source for meat, please check out the AAMP website and find your state's affiliate site. Many of the state websites have "find a butcher" lists or are providing updates on their social media with any of their members who have product on the shelves or space available in their slaughter schedule.
First up, quick resources for finding updates on plant closures:
FoodDive - Food & Bev Plant Closures (this is probably the most thorough list of closures I've found. FoodDive includes status, plant type, closure/reopening date, and reason for closure. They also include various links to news articles about the plant in question.)
MEAT+POULTRY - Meat Processing Closure Map
The Counter - Meat Processing
Meat industry news:
Three USDA inspectors have died due to COVID-19. As of earlier this month, 197 field inspectors were absent from work and another 120 were under self-quarantine. **Note: the USDA reports that there are 8,000 inspectors in 6,200 plants across the US. It doesn't look like the USDA website with this information has been updated since 2013 though.
To make matters worse, federal inspectors have been raising concerns about lack of transparency surrounding the safety at processing plants and say local leaders are withholding information related to the spread at COVID-19 at facilities. Last month during a tele-town hall, FSIS told inspectors they would need to find their own masks if the plants they were stationed at weren't supplying them and have now stopped taking employees questions during these town halls.
Keeping with inspector news, 40 CFIA inspectors throughout Canada have tested positive for COVID-19. Mentioned in this article is the fact that there are 37 CFIA inspectors stationed at Cargill's beef operation in High River, Alberta - 18 of them have tested positive. There have been 3 deaths of Cargill - High River employees and at least 1,500 positive cases in the area that are linked to this facility. Cargill reopened this facility last week, but was forced to close their Chambly, Quebec location this week after 64 workers tested positive..
US COVID-19 hot spots linked to meat packing plants. Take the state of Kansas, where there have been 8,340 confirmed cases as of this post. In Kansas, these spikes in positive cases are thanks to a massive effort by Gov. Kelly and the KSDH to get these plant employees tested as quickly as possible. Take a look at these counties (these 4 plants represent 25% of US beef production):
Millions of pigs to be euthanized. There have been a few other posts where I and others have touched on why the pork industry is impacted much more significantly than beef. With the short life cycle of a market pig coupled with the mass amount of pigs that are processed a day, there isn't much the producers can do to adjust what's happening with such short notice.
JBS USA CEO tells Wall Street Journal the pandemic will slow meat production in America for several months.
I'm trying to find more information on if this is happening in other states, but the Mississippi Dept. of Agriculture has changed rules on how farmers can sell meat products. This is cutting out the retail portion of the process and is linking up consumers directly with the farmer and their processors.
To make things more interesting, the USDA has announced they will be investigating pricing in the beef industry. This technically started late last year, but with all that has being going on recently, calls from ranchers, politicians, and various lobby groups have increased. There could be some anti-trust violations, if the allegations are true. There is also an ongoing lawsuit for fixing of pork prices.
Story from Waterloo, IA where a Tyson plant has reopened from an employee who recovered from COVID-19. If you're curious about what plants are implementing to keep employees separated, there is some footage. (Side note: we have suppliers reaching out to ask if we would like to buy curtain-like material, since it's cheaper than Plexiglas, to sell to our customers.)
Companies increasing pay, rolling out bonus programs, but employees still don't feel safe. I can't blame employees for feeling this way when I know how difficult it is for me to get things like masks and disposable gloves. Now, we have to compete with business reopening who are telling their customers every employee will have a mask and gloves on during interactions. A brief interview about the current situation in the disposable glove marketplace - takeaway is flexibility is key, if that's even an option. Just today, JBS and Pilgrims Pride announced they will invest more than $50 million into the communities of their employees. This will include donations to alleviate food insecurity, improve infrastructure and employee well-being, and support COVID-19 emergency response/relief efforts.
Other food news:

2020.04.22 19:02 olddognewfix Looking for creative ways to stop losing money on condo (Calgary)

TL;DR: We have a rental unit condo we can't afford to keep. Willing to look at any and all ideas for how to not lose (too much) money on it. Would love for it to be gone.
A little over 5 years ago when my wife and I began dating, she was already in the process of buying a condo here in Calgary. It's a ground level unit with a nice fenced-in courtyard, it's about 500 square feet, has underground parking & storage, and she ended up paying I think around $210k for it. She currently owes around $168k. It's in the community of Renfrew if anyone is familiar - close to downtown and lots of great restaurants and parks nearby. Pet friendly; in suite laundry - it's a nice little place.

Well, as things got more serious, we moved in together into a bigger rental property and eventually bought our own home. She has been renting out the condo for a few years but unfortunately at a loss. Condo fees continue to increase, the rental market is flooded, and the market for selling is all but in hibernation.

Her current tenant has given her notice and as luck would have it, it's also time for her to renew her mortgage. She is employed, tho has been on maternity leave for the last 11 months, and when she goes back to work in a few weeks, isn't really sure the status of her job as there have been a lot of cutbacks & layoffs.

We are racking our brains for ideas on how to stop the bleeding as renting this unit at a loss is no longer feasible. I'm turning to PFC here in hoping someone will have an idea we haven't thought of, or will at least tell us why we should or shouldn't do any of the things we've thought of.

So, the ideas:
1) Re-up the mortgage. Apparently she can't set up a deferral until she re-ups. The idea was to get a new, longer amortization to gain a little wiggle room in renting the unit out to the next tenant. Unfortunately, she has a bit more consumer debt now than she had when she originally bought this place not to mention our personal home mortgage. She has paid off her vehicle since then - not sure if it would offset the debt tho (around $22k I believe). Getting a longer amortization would require a credit check and she's worried about that. Continuing with the amortization she has at current rates would not really help as comparable rentals rent for much less than her current costs - she's losing $300/month currently.

2) Air Bnb or executive rental - maybe if people were still travelling it would be worth looking at, but with the state of the world right now we fear it would be empty most of the time and we just can't afford to float an empty rental unit.

3) Sell it. She met with a realtor (pre-Covid) who basically told her that due to the comparable's on the market, she would have to ask much less than she bought it for and after getting negotiated down, would probably end up paying out of pocket just to get rid of it (to the tune of $10k+). We've also thought about selling it privately but don't know much about that but it is something we're open to.

4) Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure. I've only read up on this briefly, but my understanding is she could call the bank and say she can't pay for it anymore and give the property back to them. We know there would likely be a hit to her credit because of this, but we're debating if it's worth it just to be done with it. Again, we can't take the $300/month loss any longer.

5) Other ideas: what else is there really? We thought about incentivizing a rental by offering a couple of grand to someone who stays there for 2 years (rented at the amount she needs to cover her costs). It may still end up she's out the same money in the end, but would have a couple of years to find a way to save it and not just be losing money every month.
We're at a loss and desperate for some ideas. The economy in Alberta is looking horrible for the foreseeable future and it could be a long time before it recovers. If that's the case, rental prices will just keep dropping and she will keep going deeper in debt. Selling is tough right now but we'd love to be able to move it. She never wanted to be a landlord, but the timing of us meeting just so happened to be a few weeks/months too late for her to put the brakes on buying the condo in the first place.
Is there anything we're not thinking of? A creative/outside the box way of dealing with this? We don't want to lose our family home nor do we want to keep racking up debt. Are there other ways to get this unit off our hands while not costing us tens of thousands of dollars we don't have?
Thanks for reading and for any helpful advice...

2020.04.11 03:00 __justsayin__ Restless energy: Enbridge’s CEO is hunkered down at home and searching for his next target

Al Monaco doesn’t deal well with sitting still.
As head of Canada’s largest utility, Enbridge Inc.’s chief executive is used to being on the road. The company’s pipelines carry three million barrels of crude oil a day – 25 per cent of the North American total – and 20 per cent of all natural gas, about 18 billion cubic feet. Mr. Monaco makes it a priority to spend time with customers at each end of the pipe: producers in Alberta’s oil sands and refiners on the Gulf of Mexico.
The 60-year-old CEO is also evangelical about building relationships face to face. Want support from Indigenous groups or the anti-pipeline Governor of Michigan (a.k.a. Democrat Gretchen Whitmer)? Mr. Monaco knows he must meet on their turf. Need cash to pay for $11-billion in projects? That requires winning over bankers in Toronto and New York. Trying to knit a Canadian culture into the fabric of the 6,000-strong Houston-based work force of Spectra Energy, acquired three years ago for $37-billion? You’ve got to go Texas. (Enbridge owns three aircraft, including a Falcon corporate jet, to carry its executives around the continent.)
Then came COVID-19. Enbridge executives began planning for a potential pandemic back in January. In early March, the company activated emergency control centres in Edmonton and Houston. Its staff was separated from existing facilities at pipeline hubs in Alberta and Texas, to ensure oil and gas would continue to flow even if some employees got sick or were quarantined. Enbridge also rearranged the furniture at its call centres to ensure employees could take customer calls with a hockey stick’s worth of space between them. “We’ve faced hurricanes in the Gulf and floods in Calgary," says Mr. Monaco. “We’re well-versed in contingency planning.”
As for Mr. Monaco, like most of us, he suddenly found himself house-bound – a non-essential employee. In a time of crisis, he’s confined at home in Calgary, running one of North America’s largest energy companies off his laptop in a modest home office. When asked about the last time he spent more than a consecutive week or two in one place in his eight years as CEO, he pauses and then says: “I honestly can’t recall.”
Mr. Monaco admits he thrives on a jam-packed daily schedule – he’s described in every media profile as having “restless energy.” That helps explain how he managed to earn an MBA at the University of Calgary while working full time at Home Oil Co. and raising three sons with his wife, Laurie (all three kids are out of the house now, meaning it’s just the two of them on lockdown).
Being cooped up at home right now is extra hard for Mr. Monaco as the industry landscape shifts.
Last week, rival TC Energy Corp. moved ahead with its Keystone XL pipeline, snagging a US$1.1-billion investment from the Alberta government. As he told a virtual Scotiabank conference after the deal was announced, Mr. Monaco always assumed Keystone would be built, and he was pleased to see it move forward – customers pump more than enough oil and gas to fill new pipelines from both TC and Enbridge.
But Enbridge’s Canadian clients are reeling, thanks to the month-long price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, which effectively cut world crude prices in half and slashed Canadian prices from US$40 a barrel to just $4 (though there were signs late in the week that the two countries had declared a ceasefire). As a result, Mr. Monaco said recently he expects Canadian producers to slash output by up to 25 per cent this year.
Enbridge is largely insulated from swings in commodity prices, since it sets prices for transporting oil and gas in long-term contracts. But an oil price war or prolonged recession that drives down either supply or demand for energy – or both – could translate into lower volumes across the company’s 192,000 kilometres of pipelines. That uncertainty, along with the broader COVID-19 market meltdown, explain a 21-per-cent decline in its stock price since the beginning of the year.
So, from his home office – decorated with a photo of the boat that brought his parents to Canada from Italy in the 1950s – Mr. Monaco is using this forced downtime to burnish Enbridge’s credentials. He’s on the phone most mornings by six, checking in with employees, customers, regulators and investors. Dressed in a favourite black sweater, rather than the CEO’s more traditional blue suit, he makes frequent appearances at virtual investor conferences. His pitch: Enbridge’s strong balance sheet and deep ties to the world’s largest energy companies differentiate it from rivals.
Enbridge’s boss is also looking ahead to a time when the company can shift from crisis management back to growth strategies. Part of that planning is focused on winning the social licence it needs to build new pipelines when a large segment of the population has turned against fossil fuels.
In 2016, a federal court blocked its planned Northern Gateway pipeline, ruling the federal government had failed to adequately consult with Indigenous groups. The CEO says Enbridge has always prioritized good relations with Indigenous communities, and he has made a point of staying in regular contact with First Nations leaders throughout the pandemic.
He’s also launched a charm offensive, putting in calls to U.S. regulators and government officials who will determine the fate of planned pipelines in Minnesota and Michigan. In a series of recent virtual conferences, Mr. Monaco said Enbridge is making headway on projects in both states thanks to a combination of lobbying and litigation.
Closer to home, the born-and-bred Calgarian has been quick to praise politicians for stepping up in a crisis that’s expected to leave one in four Albertans unemployed. “The provincial and federal governments are taking decisive action,” he says. A long-time advocate of using Canada’s energy resources to help fund the transition to an economy that’s less reliant on fossil fuels, Mr. Monaco says he’s encouraged that both Alberta and federal leaders “recognize we have to protect the energy industry.”
Mr. Monaco is an accountant by training. His first corporate job was tracking inventories as an analyst at Home Oil. After the company was acquired and its management team let go, he joined a predecessor to Enbridge in 1995 and was named CEO seven years later. The accounting background bubbles up in the way Mr. Monaco answers questions, occasionally numbering his conversation points.
What has Enbridge learned from the coronavirus crisis? “Two key learnings. First, it reinforced the need for a robust IT team to support the whole organization and the importance of cybersecurity," he says. “Second, COVID-19 reinforced the need to ensure our critical infrastructure can stay up and running.”
What are his priorities? “There are four things,” he replies, then rhymes them off: protecting and supporting Enbridge’s 12,000 employees and millions of customers; setting goals for the next 60, 90 and 120 days to recognize the shifting landscape; ensuring the company has the financial strength to fund essential projects; and finally, getting a long-delayed pipeline built to link Alberta oil sands to eastern refineries.
In fact, Enbridge has a list of 14 major projects, along with maintenance work, to keep it busy, and by mid-March, with North American businesses going dark, the company’s engineers and financiers began reviewing that list, with a total tally of $11-billion over three years. Big-ticket items include $2.9-billion to complete the final U.S. section of the Line 3 pipeline, which runs from Alberta to Minnesota, and rebuilding part of a second pipeline, Line 5, in Michigan. Enbridge also plans to spend $1.8-billion on an offshore wind farm in France.
Some of this work might be “deferred and delayed” due to the pandemic, Mr. Monaco says. But $5-billion in funding for new projects is already locked down, and the CEO is confident he can raise an additional $6-billion from lenders. Enbridge has relationships with about 50 banks – the executives of which are on the other end of some of Mr. Monaco’s early-morning calls. Collectively, they’ve pledged to lend the utility up to $12-billion, if needed.
Sitting at home, talking about Enbridge’s financial muscle and growth plans, Mr. Monaco comes about as close as any energy CEO ever can to talking trash about rivals.
Take the railroads. When Alberta oil companies pumped more crude than pipelines could handle last year, the railways saw an opportunity to grab customers by shipping oil in tanker cars. Mr. Monaco expects to win back that market share this year and next, as oil production falls and Enbridge brings on additional capacity. The economics of oil by rail, he says, just don’t make sense, since pipelines can get oil to refineries on the Gulf coast for about $8 a barrel, while the train trip costs roughly $20.
Where some companies are coy about revealing clients, Mr. Monaco wants everyone to know the utility has long-term contracts with Canada’s largest, deepest-pocketed players – Imperial Oil Ltd. and Suncor Energy Inc., top the list – providing a source of dependable future cash. During a Merrill Lynch virtual conference last week, he talked up the massive reserves among Enbridge’s clients, adding: “This is a bit of a contrast to the shale situation.”
He didn’t go full Rodney Dangerfield on the already beat-up U.S. shale oil sector. (Whiting Petroleum Corp., once the largest oil producer in North Dakota’s Bakken region, filed for bankruptcy last week, and more failures are expected.) But Enbridge’s boss wants investors to understand its oil sands clients will be sending crude down the company’s pipelines for decades to come, while shale plays are now measuring their lifespan in months.
To date, Mr. Monaco’s defining moment as CEO has been the $37-billion Spectra acquisition. The deal added a growing natural gas business to Enbridge’s portfolio and helped the utility maintain its track record for hiking dividends, with average increases of 11 per cent annually over the past 15 years.
Could the coronavirus crisis open up the opportunity for another major deal?
Mr. Monaco says the pipeline sector “is bound to experience some dislocation, some distress," which means the barrier to another takeover is simple: Quality utilities such as Spectra are unlikely to run into trouble and almost always command a premium price. But hunkered down at home, marshalling Enbridge’s resources in preparation for future growth, Mr. Monaco says his teams are tracking potential targets.
"We’re always looking.”

2020.03.19 19:40 peaceouteast Inter Pipeline Reiterates Confidence in Underlying Business

CALGARY, March, 19, 2020 /CNW/ - In response to the unprecedented decline in global energy prices and the COVID-19 pandemic, Inter Pipeline Ltd. ("Inter Pipeline") (TSX: IPL), is providing the following update to our stakeholders.
"Inter Pipeline's top priorities remain the health and safety of our workforce, while ensuring the safe and reliable operations of our facilities and pipeline infrastructure", commented Christian Bayle, Inter Pipeline's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Despite a very challenging environment, I am confident in our underlying businesses and high-quality customer base."
"The financial bedrocks of our company are our assets which produce substantial cost-of-service and fee-based cash flow. These assets remain fully operational and continue to generate stable and predictable returns."
Financial Resilience
Inter Pipeline's financial resilience is underpinned by the long-term, stable cash flow that is generated by our oil sands transportation business. This segment is supported by 20+ year cost-of-service contracts that are not materially impacted by throughput volume or commodity price fluctuations. Furthermore, the majority of cash flow from our conventional oil pipeline business is supported by fee-based contracts with more than 100 producers and shippers within our broad service capture areas. Our well contracted bulk liquid storage business is currently exceeding expectations as demand for storage infrastructure continues to improve in Europe.
In 2019, these three business segments generated cost-of-service and fee-based EBITDA of over $800 million, or approximately 80 percent of Inter Pipeline's total EBITDA of $1,050 million. For 2020, Inter Pipeline expects these segments to contribute contracted EBITDA between $780 and $810 million, assuming normal operations.
Results from Inter Pipeline's NGL processing business remain under pressure in this lower commodity price environment. However, operationally, our Cochrane extraction facility continues to operate at near full capacity with approximately 2.5 bcf/d flowing through the plant. Sales volumes at the Redwater Olefinic Fractionator also remain strong averaging about 35,000 barrels per day year to date in 2020.
High-Quality Counterparties
Inter Pipeline's customer base is diverse and supported by creditworthy counterparties. Approximately 80 percent of our revenue is underpinned by investment grade counterparties and we maintain the ability to call for letters of credit, parental guarantees, prepayments or other types of security. Inter Pipeline has a robust credit review process and has successfully prevented any material credit losses during all previous market cycles.
Heartland Petrochemical Complex
Construction at the Heartland Petrochemical Complex remains active with a full contingent of trades continuing to execute planned construction work packages. Inter Pipeline is committed to making the site as safe as possible for its workforce. Additional safety measures to address potential COVID-19 transmission concerns at the site have been implemented and Inter Pipeline remains in close contact with the Government of Alberta on these efforts.
At this time, we continue to operate without impact at the Heartland Complex and across the rest of the organization. In addition, robust continuity plans have been implemented in alignment with recommendations from government agencies and public health authorities.
Bulk Liquid Storage Sale Process
Inter Pipeline's process to explore the sale of the bulk liquid storage business remains active and we expect to provide a more detailed market update on the status of the sales process within the next few weeks.
Should a definitive transaction be concluded, the process is expected to be completed by mid 2020 with proceeds from the full or partial sale used to reduce debt and finance our capital expenditure program.
2020 Capital Expenditure Program
Inter Pipeline's 2020 capital program will continue to focus primarily on the construction of the Heartland Petrochemical Complex. However, in these volatile conditions, it is prudent to scale back certain discretionary expenditures to further protect the balance sheet. As a result, Inter Pipeline expects to reduce its previously announced 2020 capital program by between $60 million and $120 million.
The multi-phase expansion of Inter Pipeline's Central Alberta pipeline system will continue to advance on time and budget. The construction of a new 75-kilometer Viking Connector pipeline is expected to be completed in April 2020 and two 130,000-barrel storage tanks at Stettler Terminal are planned to enter service mid 2020.
Financial Measures
Inter Pipeline continues to maintain a strong balance sheet with significant liquidity available on its committed revolving credit facility. Over $1.2 billion of available capacity remains on Inter Pipeline's 5-year, $1.5 billion revolving credit facility. Subject to lender approval, Inter Pipeline also has access to $500 million of additional capacity through an accordion feature within the credit agreement.
As at December 31, 2019, Inter Pipeline's consolidated net debt to total capitalization ratio was 41.3 percent, significantly below the maximum level of 65 percent. Inter Pipeline also has a $3 billion base shelf prospectus that provides quick and efficient access to capital markets that could be utilized to term out additional debt.

2020.02.13 11:45 drew_incarnate “Perhaps the most famous oligarch named [in US sanctions list] is Roman Abramovich, a major shareholder in the London-listed Evraz PLC, which owns Evraz North America.” National Post (1/31/2017) • “Roman Abramovich, surprisingly, escaped [sanctions] unscathed.” The Sports Bank (4/6/2018)

The National Post (Canada)—Owners of Western Canada’s Biggest Steel Company on U.S. Treasury's New “Putin List”
(1/31/2017) “The U.S. Treasury list was a legal requirement under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act of 2017, brought in response to alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.
Perhaps the most famous oligarch named is Roman Abramovich, a major shareholder in the London-listed Evraz PLC, which owns Evraz North America. Evraz employs 1,800 people in Canada, with sites in Regina as well as Calgary, Camrose and Red Deer in Alberta.
Aleksandr Abramov, non-executive chairman of Evraz PLC and Aleksandr Frolov, its CEO, are also listed. In Evraz PLC’s 2016 annual report, Abramovich is listed as owning 31.03 per cent of all shares in the company, Abramov 21.38 per cent, and Frolov 10.68 per cent.
The ‘name and shame’ oligarch list has been mocked as it is a carbon copy of a Forbes magazine ranking of Russian billionaires. In Russia, it has drawn scorn because some of those listed do not, in reality, enjoy Putin’s favour.
Yet the list has spooked rich Russians who fear it could make them informally blacklisted in the global financial system. [...]
Peter Warrian, a steel industry expert at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global affairs, said the inclusion of major individual steel industry players on the list was, ‘obviously an area of some concern’.
‘There may be a second shoe to drop,’ he said. ‘That is the Trump administration implementing steel tariffs, citing national security concerns [🙄]. There are expectations in the steel industry that that’s on the way.’
Though the report isn’t a sanctions list, Russian President Vladimir Putin called it a hostile and ‘stupid’ move spearheaded by Trump’s political foes. ‘All of us, all 146 million, have been put on some kind of list’, he said at a meeting with activists from his ongoing presidential campaign.
‘Certainly, this is an unfriendly move, which further exacerbates the already strained Russia-U.S. relations and hurts international relations as a whole.’
In Forbes’ most recent figures, Evraz major shareholder Abramovich’s wealth is pegged at $11.2 billion USD—making him the 145th richest person in the world.
He has known ties to Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner. His wife Dasha Zhukova [divorced 2018]—a dual U.S.-Russia citizen from whom he recently separated—is a longtime friend of Trump. The two women have been pictured at various social gatherings, including a 2014 trip to Russia and a 2016 outing to tennis’ U.S. Open.” (http://archive.is/v1zgP)
•The Sports Bank (UK)—Roman Abramovich, Surprisingly, Escapes Sanctioning by the U.S. Government (4/6/2018) “Back on January 30, Chelsea Owner Roman Abramovich was named to the United States Treasury Department’s Russian Oligarchs list, dubbed by many observers as the ‘Putin list’. This list, with 210 names on it, includes 96 oligarchs with a net worth or more than $1 billion (£710 million) and very close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin. While Abramovich, and the other names on the list, weren’t sanctioned at the time that this list was announced, it did serve as a prelude to potential economic sanctions. What might be just the first wave of sanctions got announced today, and Roman Abramovich, surprisingly [🙄], was escaped unscathed. ‘Treasury designates 7 Russian oligarchs, 12 companies they own or control, 17 senior Russian officials & a weapons trading company and its bank, in response to Russia’s worldwide malign activity.’ – Treasury Department (@USTreasury) April 6, 2018 ‘The Russian government operates for the disproportionate benefit of oligarchs and government elites,’ said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin in a press release announcing the sanctions on the U.S. government agency website. ‘The Russian government engages in a range of malign activity around the globe, including continuing to occupy Crimea and instigate violence in eastern Ukraine, supplying the Assad regime with material and weaponry as they bomb their own civilians, attempting to subvert Western democracies, and malicious cyber activities.’ ‘Russian oligarchs and elites who profit from this corrupt system will no longer be insulated from the consequences of their government’s destabilizing activities.’ Abramovich, notoriously ultra-secretive, is the world’s 139th wealthiest man, with a net worth of 7 billion, according to Forbes magazine. He reportedly once gave Putin a yacht. It’s been well documented that Abramovich is a bosom buddy of Jared Kushner, son-in-law of United States President Donald Trump. Additionally, Kushner’s wife, Ivanka Trump and Abramovich’s ex-wife are very close friends. The Putin list was a requirement after Congress passed the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (Caatsa) in August. Caatsa is a response to Russia for their meddling in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election. For the full Putin list, go to this link https://www-m.cnn.com/2018/01/30/politics/full-us-list-of-russian-oligarchs-with-putin-ties-intl. The fact the Chelsea owner wasn’t included in the group hit with sanctions today surprised a lot of people who keep close tabs on current events; or at least events related to this topic. Here’s a small sampling of what people are saying on social media about this development: ‘Key Putin ally and close confidant Roman Abramovich, who is also close friends with Jared and Ivanka, is missing from this list. Roman co-owns two US steel plants and also has expensive real estate in Aspen and NYC. Interesting omission.’ – Thomas Brown (@brownertj) April 6, 2018 ‘Should Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich be added to this list? Or is he too close to #IvankaTrump and #JaredKushner?’ – Mitchell Orenstein (@m_orenstein) April 6, 2018 ‘checks nervously for Roman Abramovich’ – Brian Stout (@bstouttt) April 6, 2018 ‘Russian oligarch not sanctioned by the #Treasury today: Roman Abramovich, Mr. & Mrs. Kushner's close personal friend. #RussianSanctions #Oligarchs #Abramovich #Kushner’ – Luba Smal (@lubasmal) April 6, 2018 It will be really interesting now to see how Abramovich responds to this. Perhaps he’ll feel relieved; or maybe he’ll take it as an affront.” http://www.thesportsbank.net/football/chelsea/roman-abramovich-surprisingly-escapes-sanctions-u-s-government (http://archive.is/WgeUs) *[“The Sports Bank is a sports website which keeps you up to date will all the latest sports news from the NFL, to the English Premier League.” http://facebook.com/TheSportsBank2

2020.01.27 18:32 Buck_Joffrey Wealth Formula Episode 195: Wealth Secret #1: Know, Like and Trust!

Catch the full episode: https://www.wealthformula.com/podcast/195-wealth-secret-1-know-like-and-trust/
Buck: Welcome back to the show everyone. Today my guest on Wealth Formula Podcast is my very good friend and partner Tim McLeary from Western Wealth Capital. Tim has been involved with the financial services in real estate industries for 25 years before joining Western Wealth Capital. His resume is extensive including oversight of more than a billion dollars in assets at TD Bank Financial Group and that was of course before our current run at Western Wealth. Now he is Vice President of Investor relations at Western Wealth Capital and he is obviously you know the face that many of you who have been an Investor Club already have seen and met in person if you've come to our meetups in Phoenix in Houston and of course he'll be in the next one as well. Tim, welcome to Wealth Formula Podcast man.
Tim: Yeah thank you Buck.
Buck: So you know obviously you know we've been talking within investor club and you know pretty much every day with regards to properties that we're looking at etc, but it's great to finally have you on the program to kind of you know expose everybody who's not necessarily part of the investor club to what you guys are doing. So everyone you know obviously people in the investor club already know at least you through the webinars. They may not have seen your pretty mug like you can on the video version here, but tell us a little bit about your past and you know how you ultimately ended up from you know these positions where more traditional financial market into multifamily real-estate.
Tim: Well this is always a common theme and I've always worked in an environment dealing with or connecting with people and institutions anywhere from as you mentioned TD which is you know institutional money management business development leadership with the major chartered financial banks. So again the common denominator is the ability to connect with people and my last position from my last job you know I was pretty darn comfortable feet up you know not being challenged, golfing a couple times a week sometimes I would play these sound like their president real calm and actually wanna one of my good friends a gentleman I used to play a little hockey with in the past because that's what we do up here in the frozen tundra is play a lot of hockey, he was the CFO of actually a very large local developer and he had just joined this small little firm in Vancouver called Western Wealth Capital and at the time and I think this nuts he went from you know CFO of again one of the largest developers in Vancouver just real estate company called Western Wealth Capital and out of the blue he gave me a call and introduced me to the CEO of Western Wealth Capital, Janet LePage and that meeting I basically sat there and said I'll do whatever it takes to come and work with his organization. I just knew it was a rocket ship, she's an amazing lady and then I met David Steele the other co GP and that was two and a half years ago and I loved every day and I'm learning as we go as well too and it's been a phenomenal ride and I'm looking for the next 10 or 15 years.
Buck: So you know obviously you're smart guy and you're heavily involved with day-to-day operations and yet God you know really your pulse on every part of this business so when you look at it from that perspective and you know what's going on in the economy etc, why multifamily real estate right now?
Tim: Well you know multi family is kind of the darling play in that real estate asset class right now you know more and more people and groups are running to this asset class and there's you know a couple simple reasons you know one there's you know multifamily is a very low risk profile asset class you know you look at the stock market and the fluctuations you know I'm still a junkie I look three or four times a day to see what the Dow and Nasdaq are doing but they're basically up and down with the Dow and Nasdaq and you know the market that general market that really depends on I say it is moved from a fundamental market to an emotional driven market you know it depends on tweets from certain people then also you know market move one way or another you know where as you know multifamily is just it's boring it's a real boring asset class but again it's also something you can touch and feel it's not emotionally driven it's you know it's real property it's something you can touch and feel and then you know also plain and simple, people need a place to sleep and a multi-family provides that. You know there's a thousand people moving to Texas a day, they need somewhere to sleep and you know and this is the reason why we love Dallas and Houston you know there's more and more employers moving from the west coast you know to you know to these states such as Florida and Texas and Arizona and all those new new workers need to need a place to sleep and multifamily provides them affordable place to live you know it's very much workforce housing and that's what we look for. And then lastly cash flow I mean you have a low risk profile asset class and and then you're receiving a yield I mean it's basically the best of both worlds.
Buck: Yeah I mean you know I think the the thing that you said that really resonates with me in general and I've said it on the show number times recently is that boring is good right, it's good boring is good this is and take it from a you know a serial entrepreneur type guy myself I mean I've chased enough shiny objects and what's always amazing to me through that period over the last decade is that through everything that has failed and that has gone well, one thing just keeps doing well it's boring but it's called multi-family real estate and that's been my experience you know. So again just advice to just general advice not financial advice don't stay away from something cuz it's boring. Don't go chasing things because you look bright and shiny they look exciting because weather exciting there's inherently more risk. Boring is good. But let's talk about the Western wealth capital because when you think about the Western Wealth Capital model you know it is quite opposite from some of the more boring ideas of when you think of REITs and stuff, it's actually pretty electric. I mean Ken McIlroy who we you know we had this meet up as you recall it was about a year ago in Phoenix Scottsdale and Ken was there and Ken was obviously has known Dave Steele for you know a very long time and they're friends you listen to what you know Dave had to say and he called it a quote money machine right, and that's pretty high praise from a guy like Ken you know and a lot of people trust can I trust Ken. So what exactly is it you know that makes this machine what it is? I mean it's annualized returns of 30 percent for investors through all divestments and you know the speed at which things are working. What is it that makes this different? What is this money machine?
Tim: Well firstly I mean that super high praise from a guy like Ken I mean he's had massive success in this space and you know as you mentioned Dave Steel can go way back and that's huge praise from Ken and that was fantastic when he did say that. Our model you know is pretty simple you know what buck really what it comes down to his execution of her plan you know. I'm a big believer and you know you may have the best business plan on the planet the best digit whatever it is but if you can't execute guess what it's useless and you know our our system our process is repeatable scalable we execute on day one and that means day one of take over when we take over a property but before we take over a property you know we already know what color we're gonna paint the building, we know what the pool furniture is going in, we know what the monument sign is gonna look like, you know the Landscaping's been you know taken care of, the leasing office is basically going to be remodeled as well on day one you know we're putting fliers under the doors of the tenants and we're saying hey do you want an ensuite washer and dryer you know all the statistics that we read that that was the number one ask from tenants is an actual ensuite washer and dryer and it's mind-blowing to me that property owners out there that have pre plumbed washer and dryers but actually don't put watch her dryers and you know we simplistically threw a flyer on the door and said if you will it would like a in-suite washer and dryer you know for an extra forty or fifty dollars a month just to let us know we'll install it and on Tuesday you'll have a washer and dryer, the balance a month no charge but you know as of the next month you know there will be a forty or fifty dollar charge and you know what you got to look at is that the installation that washer and dryer for for you know four-year $50 a month based on a cap rate it works out to about an increase in equity on a per door basis of about ten thousand dollars. And again like you said it comes down just simple math and then you know we throw in our goal start renovations where you know we can turn a unit and about you know eight days at a cost of about 60 to 50 to turn that and you know if we're charging a hundred and twenty-five dollars for that goal style renovation you know based on a certain cap rate buck you again that per door you know equity in valuation has gone up by $30,000. So it really what it comes down to simplistically math and the ability execute and that's something that we're good at both.
Buck: Yeah you know the way I think about it in and tell me we think of this analogy because you know, listen at the value add real estate is not a new concept you know there's a lot of opportunity for a long time, but to me what the difference when I look at it is that most value add operators and I'm talking about even you know a lot of well-known ones they're really operating at a boutique type level of business right, I mean they're sort of like the you know the if you look at in terms of restaurants they're the cafe around the corner run by the mom-and-pop and you know they've got an idea and they you know they run it well they get some good stuff going on they get nice ingredients but the reality is there they may not be infinitely they may not be running it quickly and as profitably as it can be. What's remarkable to me when I look at what you guys have put together there is you've got effectively a you know a McDonaldization right like a you've taken something, a substrate like apartment buildings you know 25-30 million dollar 70 million dollar apartment buildings and commoditized the turning of those in such a manner that it literally reminds me of a Mcdonald's type you know or you know some kind of industrial boom boom boom boom get it done kind of thing and whereas you might think well that's not gonna you know result in as good a product, the reality is the repetition the repeating the same thing over having the same type of you know operations over and over make you better and better and faster and that I just don't see anywhere else and I'm curious kind of what if that's the same you know what you see is the difference from others.
Tim: Yeah we're constantly working on our processes and you know you said it's repeatable and scalable and you can call the McDonnells ism theory but you know that that's what drives us very much and again you know it does come down to execution as you mentioned you know there's a lot of syndicators out there that really say they're in our space or they’re in the value-add space you know but they really don't spend that equity they don't have that team in place that can actually execute and that's one thing that's different about Western Wealth Capital is you know Jan and Dave do spend the money we do have the right people in all of the asset locations that we are situated and and we're not happy with six out of ten you know we live in a world where ten out of ten makes make sense.
Buck: The other part that I think is really different is speed right, because and again from from the standpoint of a guy who's interested in looking at things from you know mathematical way I mean I like equations I like things that have definitive you know ways of looking at things, the one thing that people don't usually think about is speed right. So you're going to do this at scale you're going to turn this you're gonna get so much you know increase in apartments and net operating income but if you can contract the amount of time it takes to get there you've effectively doubled your return and that presumably is a you know that that's why you're getting the kind of returns you are I mean don't you think that speed is probably the variable that is most unique?
Tim: Very much so and how I look at that is you know we're a very conservative organization all of our models are they're cookie cutter we were big believers and under promising and over delivering you know Janet's math background she’s a computer scientist by trade exactly you know it's very math based you know we have a Wow program we had a while but 1.0 we now but while 2.0 but so what we're trying to do is just increase the speed of how you know how quick we execute and really what that comes down to Buck is you know for our investors is we're you know we're de-risking their investment from day one. We're increasing the value of that property so quickly that we are literally moving the cap rate from let's say by a five to six or six and a half because of the execution of our business plan.
Buck: There's another part of that speed and you know that that that's really pertinent to investors and that is the idea of getting your money out of the deal we always talk about in terms of Western or in terms of the Wealth Formula you know mass times velocity times the leverage so velocity being like how quickly you get your money back out of a deal. One of the things I think is really interesting is the use of the supplemental loan program. Can you explain kind of how that works to people who don't know about it and you know some of the advantages of doing that.
Tim: I mean just very high level you know when we buy a property and we're gonna use some round assumption numbers here but let's say we buy a building for twenty million dollars you know we're typically using agency debt, the lender will actually provide us with a loan you know 100 percent valuation of that property loan to cost and so let's say the full twenty million dollars however they will not you know of course fund us that full amount. Typically it ranges anywhere from you know based on our models sixty five to up to seventy two percent you know of that LTC. Then as we create that value in that property as we execute and at the speed that we do or you are you know we creating value quickly we can go back after twelve months to our lender and instead of doing a whole refinance package which typically is quite expensive we just go back and and have our lender revisit the financials and basically pull a supplementary, so again if that building goes from 20 million 25 million, they will release anywhere between 65 to 70, 72 percent of that additional five million dollars in equity that we've created what we do with that equity well we give it back to our investors. So our whole model is and we've again under-promise and over-deliver here but you know what we pro forma is to return 50 percent of the investors equity between a 24 to 36 month period and then another 25% so up to 75% between a 36 and 48 month period and then up to a hundred percent of their original equity back between a 48 and 60 month period. So they still retain their original percentage ownership in the building the same number of units, however as you just mentioned Buck what it does do is it puts money back into their pocket a lot quicker. They can in turn reinvest that into something else and you know again the velocity of their money is in the velocity returns.
Buck: And that's really the key you know is that the cash out refi model is nothing new, but you usually don’t see it for about five years and then you get you know maybe you get a refi and hopefully you get your capital back out of the deal and you've got what we call infinite returns but what we're talking about here is really unique because I know you mentioned 24 to 36 months just looking over the history it looks like the average has been about 18 months where investors are getting about 50 percent of their capital back and then you know a year later whatever they're getting over the next year or two they're getting the rest of it back. By the way the model does not allow for a split until then so in other words the operators not getting paid you know and any part of the equity until a 100% of capital is returned. Well what that does is it allows you to take you know not wait for years but wait you know assuming it's 18 months 24 months whatever and if you get if you invested a hundred grand take 50 grand back and put it into something else now you've got an opportunity to make money in two places at the same time with the same capital and that's where the numbers really go off the hook right that is kind of the the thing and then as Tim mentioned it's also derisking. So tell us a little bit about like you know kind of your track record in terms of doing this kind of stuff.
Tim: Well I mean I'll tell you a little story about one of our investors you know he started with us it's actually five years ago now we're six year old company but it took about a year of research for him to give us his his first dollar but so it's been about five years ago he started investing with us he spread $750,000 you know throughout a couple of deals he started coming in and you know we do the dip your toe in with a certain amount and then you know the investment level got a little bit larger and so his total investment you know with Western Wealth Capital was $750,000 and you know he's funny he comes to offer wine and cheeses and he basically said I'm not gonna give you any more money I'm done but I promise you this what I'm gonna do is every single penny that you give me I'm gonna reinvest it. So you know through all of our refis are just divestments dispositions which we've had 31 to date so every penny he's given back to us he's actually equity level and ownership of properties with us is just now under four million dollars five.
Buck: So seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars total investment over like you know spread over several deals or the last five years is not worth about four million bucks.
Tim: And he's just continuing to roll it yeah he's doing. Actually should I should ask him and I show the top the pin but he loves to talk probably I should take him on tour with me.
Buck: I want to get him on the podcast. That comes out to roughly an eighty nine percent annualized return on capital. Well what's interesting to me is that with you know these kinds of returns people assume there's got to be a lot of risk right I mean how do you hit thirty percent annualized returns how's this guy get a nine percent annualized return, but in fact you know the two elements and you've alluded to this before that tend to theoretically make these opportunities even more stable than most offerings is that first you know you've obviously got a heavy capital expenditure budget because this whole thing is about turning you know really neglected properties into really high quality properties, if anybody's ever been on a Western wealth tour you'll see it's just amazing, but so it's a huge you know it's a it's a big investment up front that's raised from the capital from the equity. But one of the beautiful things about that is hey you're not you know we're not gonna just try to expect that we're gonna generate all this income from the property right and that creates this level of cash that's sitting up front. That is one thing that in my mind significantly de-risks the opportunities is that there's a huge capital stack sitting there waiting, but then there's also the other idea that where as we're driving equity into this and we're making a profit hopefully by driving cap rates up dynamically in real time, you're essentially creating you called it de-risking the property right I mean those are the two main elements, is that kind of how you see it in terms of mitigating risk?
Tim: Yeah hundred percent I mean not only mitigating risk but also you know it comes to returns you know when we model a property and then when we send her a basically executive summary though you know we're not showing 30% returns and that's what we've actually achieved in our past, we've had 31 dispositions for an average hold period 29 months for an average return of 30 percent annualized so we're not showing that you know what we're basing our math typically is working out between 17 to 20 percent annualized returns based on the property very conservative based on how the performance exactly you know when we have a property with say 200 units we're not saying we're gonna execute our value add proposition on 80% 85% we're saying we may do sixty sixty-five percent. And that's where we come up with these 17 to 20s you know plus our refinance of 50, 75 and a hundred you know but again the whole goal Buck comes down to is again under-promise and over-deliver and as well as you can and under-promise and over-deliver but you better be able to execute and and the speed and again we're very good at we're obsessed actually that's the word we use we're obsessed with execution.
Buck: That's pretty obvious. How big, because we talked about how this has been, this has been a lightning bolt of a business in terms of growth. How much how much property is under management now?
Tim: We're just under 16 thousand units.
Buck: And what does that come out to in dollars? I’m putting you on the spot but you move so quickly.
Tim: So last year actually 2018 we purchased 16 buildings. In 2019 we purchased 19 buildings. Our goal this year is 24 you know however you know we do have you know different sources of that's gonna be a billion dollars we're nowhere well we're over 2.2 billion 2.2 billion.
Buck: Okay so we've got all this good stuff going on and there's skeptics out there and for good reason that say well gosh you know what's you know what are you gonna do when the market changes I mean we talked about some of the things that you can do to de-risk that like you know you're decompressing your own cap rates by creating this dynamic you know driving of net operating income but what happens in that scenario and typically you know a cycle like that might last a couple years. If you have a situation where you decompress cap rate so and you you're certainly in a position to be safe because you got about a bunch of money in the bank you know you've driven up your income, but then what do you do then to to you know to try to maximize yield? Do you just you know hold on to the property and and wait for better days or what do you do?
Tim: I guess the worst-case scenario is as you mentioned you sit in cash, again, we're a bit unique we don't have to borrow our capex we raise our capex so you know we'll sit on a lack of cash you know if required we can still continue implementing our value-added program because again you know in a crunch period of time try and get money from a bank or your agency you can't so all of a sudden syndicators just have to stop we raise that capex so we can keep going if we want but I mean worst case scenario is is we sit in cash flow you know but we also what we look at is in the markets that we deal is you know or where we have assets for the markets that we really like is you know we take a real look at the A type of properties existing or being built and you know we love buying buy a right you know a C or C plus type of building right beside an A because you know the individual is that you know that's paying 20 to 50 a month for an eight hundred square foot a type of property you know when that market does change you know are fifteen hundred and fifty dollar 1100 square but newly renovated unit plus completely upgraded and amenities is it gonna look fantastic and save that individual seven hundred dollars a month. So you know again it comes down to de risking and your investment and you know that's one of the aspects that we look at is that a type of property in the area but again worst-case scenario is yeah yeah we stuff it full only cash flow.
Buck: So I mean just to be clear we're talking about C-C plus you know probably now what you guys call C me it's probably more C plus moving it up to like a B-Bplus in it you know like you're in a area or something like that is effectively the idea you know speaking of the markets though one of the things that I think is how you know when you right now I've been saying one of the most critical aspects of buying real estate right now is picking the markets because you know when times when things are hot and things are you know markets are flying that's when you get like these you know you get these tertiary markets that are people start chasing yield where in situations where you know if the market turns there's really no natural growth there, there's no not new industry there's not that I mean how much of that goes into market selection can you kind of talk about your process there?
Tim: Yeah you nailed it Buck you know we're seeing a lot of other firms you know chasing yield, chasing returns, there's a lot of equity out there but there's also a lot of kind of startup syndicators trying to make a mark and so they're trying to chase returns and and what they don't see in what we see with we know over a hundred transactions maybe, they don't see the deal flow that we see you know we're seeing 22 to 30 deals in about twelve different cities a week but you know we see other firms you know buying in those first rate markets and that you know we'll never do that you know you know. So when the market does correct you know the place to such late such as you know Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Phoenix these these markets that are in your top five to ten type markets for economic growth when there is a correction, yeah they may correct a little bit however if you're buying in a market at right now is ranked number fifteen fifteen sixteen seventeen and it's there now just because it's kind of you know, when the market does turn guess what's gonna happen it's gonna go from fifteen sixteen to thirty thirty-one. You know our philosophy isn't you know we don't buy and cross your fingers and hope that the market goes up you know that is just not our value proposition again we're going to markets that are stable strong economic growth there's companies moving there and then basically it comes down to executing your model.
Buck: Yeah and you know and I think that's an important thing. There is this constant sort of tension between finding yield but also staying within markets that have strong job growth and you know population growth. And so the nice thing about you know major markets you know you know Houston and Phoenix and some of these markets that are you know they're not New York and LA but on the other hand they're growing like gangbusters they at the end of the day even if you have a change in sort of the overall real estate market you have this this other opposing force which is the growth in population and that isn't gonna presumably that's not going to stop people are moving there for a reason. Tough economic times they're only gonna make them move there even more.
Tim: Just a funny story Buck I was talking I was in Calgary last week which is a part of Canada, talking to a farmer last week and he explained this this way Tim he says I have a chicken and I want to make sure my chicken is laying eggs but in the long run I want to make sure my chicken’s safe at the end of the day. It's so simple and you're giggling but really that's what it comes down to. I want my eggs but I want to make sure you preserve my chicken and that's definitely Western Wealth Capital.
Buck: Capital preservation. For a group that's plugging out those kinds of numbers capital preservation you know being part of the equation is a nice relief as well. So tell me what's the plan again for this year 2020 west from wealth capital? What Mark do we looking at? What's the goal?
Tim: Well I you know we're currently in five markets I just discussed San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, second largest owner operator in Phoenix there's about twelve cities that know we followed very closely our goal for 2020 is to add two new cities so that means not you know not to have assets and five to have have them in seven you know the type of you know type of markets we're looking at is you know whether we're looking to Nevada so we're looking at Vegas we're looking at Denver of course at Denver Florida many centers and Florida as well to you know Washington, Washington State, Seattle, Portland, Nashville as well too. So you know we have a six member acquisition team and we always joke I'm not sure who lives in airports more of them or them or myself but we're kicking a lot of tires, but the goal is again here to be into you know two new cities we just don't move in a city unprepared we do a lot of homework we do a lot of back check. We don't you know we actually are before we move in a city we don't want to buy one building we're gonna go in and typically buy three buildings you don't you know we want to get you know we want to have a thousand fifteen hundred units.
Buck: That's part of the exit plan too. I mean and and that's one of the things that I think is important to one of the reasons that you end up getting paid more for these is you're not selling when building at a time you're wrapping it up to like seven or eight buildings at a time and selling it at a premium to a big you know to a big institutional buyer.
Tim: Yeah and for numbers we're probably looking at I gained one a month so probably twelve twelve deals this year so for on a deal full perspective so another ambitious ambitious goal first rate.
Buck: I’m just curious one thing and I don't know how much you've actually looked into it but it's funny that you mentioned Vegas behind I brought that up too because I remember the economist that we had at our last meet of in the growth in in in you know just in people moving into Vegas is insane right, well the question is is it real this time right?
Tim: It is you know you look at the the jobs I believe it you know not that long ago over sixty percent was you know in that hospitality sector I believe that's under forty percent now you know so that just shows that there is there's other types of opportunity now in Las Vegas and it's not solely dependent on the casinos and you know and again it's you know it's another state.
Buck: It’s just one of those things where it's like what's the difference between living in you know in a climate wise say Las Vegas Nevada in Phoenix Arizona and people are in Phoenix is growing very quickly and then Vegas all of a sudden now they've got a you know they're gonna have a football team they have an NHL team it's starting to seem like a normal thing to live in Las Vegas.
Tim: It's like anywhere Buck, it's any state or city you live in there's tremendous opportunity in great pockets I've I know a lot of people that live in Vegas and you know you joke the first question is about the strip and it's like any city you live in they all just kind of chuckle and say you know we may go this trip once a quarter you know it's like me going downtown for dinner with my family it's right you know it's the same concept.
Buck: Well Timmy I don't want to keep you too long. It's been great to have you on the show and for those of you who want more of Tim you can read about them you know Western Wealth Capital website otherwise you can join Investor Club if you are an accredited investor and that's where Tim frequently does webinars for us. Tim again I want to thank you it's great to have you on the show finally.
Tim: Thank You Buck, I really appreciate it. Thank you so much.
Buck: We’ll be right back.

2019.12.29 17:19 Matty11180 [Unresolved Disappearance] Was Pro Wrester Teddy Hart involved in the disappearance Of Samantha Fiddler?

Someone on the Wrestling Observer forum has dug up a bunch of info on him and his story is that he was in jail when Samantha Fiddler went missing. That is not true.
I hope this brings more awareness to her disappearance. Credit to Fantomas on F4WOnline.com's board for all of this.
I got interested in Teddy's missing ex-girlfriend Samantha Fiddler, so I went on a rampage the other day and dug up all the info I could find on the topic. Teddy's wiki page doesn't really have a lot of details and I am very curious as to whether Teddy was actually involved.
2012 Teddy Hart: Prostitute Wrangler
According to Rolling Stone, after he was fired by AAA in 2012, Teddy started commercially breeding cats and worked as a security driver for escort services.
"Teddy’s job was to wait outside until the sex worker inside texted him. Then he’d knock twice on the door and wait for her to exit safely. This is how he met the two women who’ve now accused him of sexual assault and unlawful confinement."
In the article, Teddy says: “It was too easy making $800 a night driving girls around and not having to climb to the top ropes and wear the boots for $200. I don’t want anything to do with that lifestyle anymore, which is why I went to Dallas in the first place.”
This Rolling Stone article is important because Samantha Fiddler was present during the interview.
2014 Teddy's Sexual Assault Charges
The Calgary Herald has a story on this case:
In 2014, Teddy was accused of sexual assault, unlawful confinement and assault of two women.
"The specifics of the 2013 and 2014 events that led to the charges aren’t publicized, and the identities of the women are under a strict Canadian publication ban. However, the women, who had relationships with Teddy, allege multiple instances where he threatened to kill their pets and family members, physically and sexually assaulted them and confiscated their IDs and phones. They say he filmed sexual acts to blackmail them. One of the women says that she wasn’t a sex worker until Teddy pimped her out, and that he drained her of $229,000 in a matter of months, mostly for weed and cat food."
"Hart maintains that the charges are false, calling them revenge for money they’ve lost through his marijuana operations. "
The charges were withdrawn at the start of a preliminary hearing May 26 2016. A spokeswoman with Alberta Justice says the Crown determined after a review that the case did not meet the criteria needed to proceed.
The same day the charges were withdrawn, Hart signed a peace bond agreeing not to contact the two women for two years. Teskey said Hart has no interest in contacting the complainants.
Teddy later claimed that the 2 women were convicted of perjury (on his "addressing the allegations" youtube video), but there is no evidence of that.
I get the feeling that the two women in question were his wife, and his wife's girlfriend.
Teddy's Prostitute Ring: On a Colt Cabana podcast Teddy claimed that his wife ran an escort service.
Skip to 12:51 on that podcast where Teddy is saying that he doesn't bring escorts to his shows. "No, dude, these are girls like, bartender, mother of 3.. I owned an escort agency with another woman..." Samantha Fiddler was a mother of three.
Being an escort is legal in Alberta, he says.
Teddy says that the escorts were managed via phone and his wife was eventually fined because two girls didn't have the proper license. Due to this, his wife got into financial trouble and to get out, she became a high end escort. Teddy claims he went along on some "couples calls."
He says that he had an $800,000 mansion and he brought 4 girls in to service clients. So... he ran a whore house for a time.
Documentary: The makers of the Teddy Hart documentary (which as far as I can tell, was never released) talked about Teddy on this short podcast. They filmed Teddy during this alleged whore phase and apparently Samantha Fiddler is present in the house and was filmed.
The producers brought footage of the documentary to Animal Planet. The executives saw film of Teddy juggling his cats and were appalled, and that was it for that meeting.
The film makers talk about how while Teddy is sometimes entertaining, he did a lot of awful things. They started to question if they should even be making the documentary.
The sexual assault lawsuit changed the nature of the documentary. The film makers said they had "unprecedented access" to everyone in the lawsuit, and were unsure of how much they should say.
Jail Time: Teddy says he went to jail for rape. When the cops came to arrest him, he threatened to shoot himself in the head. This claim was made on "Best Friends with Teddy Hart", where Chuck Taylor is visibly uncomfortable.
I believe when he says rape, he's referring to these sexual assault charges that he ultimately beat. But he uses this time in jail as an alibi for why he had nothing to do with Samantha Fiddler's disappearance.
On this video he gives some details about his time in jail.
2017 Teddy's Assault on the Disabled and Attempt to Evade Arrest
In 2017, he was arrested for a hazardous traffic violation and an attempt to evade lawful arrest. The charges were dropped a month later.
Teddy tells the story of this arrest to a very obviously uninterested Chris Jericho.
Teddy Slaps Disabled Man: So, the story starts like this: "I was facing 7-10 years in jail for assault on elderly, child, or handicap and a DUI." A guy that Teddy was sharing an apartment with was disabled (Teddy claims that the guy was lying about his disability). Teddy says that the guy started a fire at 4 AM and the smoke detector went off, so Teddy slapped him across the face.
The guy was scared of Teddy, and he fled the apartment. The guy's mother claimed that Ted was going to kidnap and confine the guy, so she called the cops on him. Teddy was charged.
6 months later, while he was dealing with the legalities of the assault charge, the cops found pills on Teddy - ephedrine. Not sure how that fits in to everything, but Teddy's stories are all over the place.
Teddy the Stripper Uber Driver: Teddy says got a job as an uber driver driving strippers home. One night, he was drinking a glass of water at the strip club (like we all do) and someone must have spiked his drink. He tried driving home inebriated and got in a 90 minute police chase and was tasered 13 times (come on, Teddy). Of course, his car was dangling over a precipice as the police repeatedly tazed him. He had 4 cats in the car who apparently went un-tazed.
Teddy says that he falsely claimed to have a drinking problem to go to rehab because it would look good - even though he doesn't have a drinking problem. WWE paid for it. This fucking guy.
Teddy's Time in the Clink: Teddy says: "Seven and a half months of my life was locked up during that time and two months of that was in rehab so that's 9 months out of a year and a half that I was dealing with the rules and limitations on what I could do and I still took 40 matches or bookings and I think all of those matches were four star matches..."
"For whatever reason, I beat this last charge. I was facing 10 years in jail and I asked all the guys to pray for me..." and of course everyone in the prison prayed for him because they knew he was such a nice guy and that Teddy brought people of all races together.
2016 Teddy's Missing Ex-Girlfriend
Samantha Fiddler, the woman who has gone missing, was actually present during the Rolling Stone interview published on March 23, 2016. Here's a quote from the article:
"Beside him, Sam Fiddler, his wrestling-student-cum-girlfriend, rests sleepily in a XXL purple fur robe, one of the many outlandish wrestling costumes her mentor-cum-boyfriend has at hand. The mother of three has just put her kids to bed after filming scenes for a pair of documentary filmmakers following Teddy. Although his criminal charges precluded the comedic Hart Attack series from being realized, the producers, Frederick Kroetsch and Kurt Spenrath of Open Sky Pictures, rechristened it a documentary called Hart of Darkness after it transpired that what they really had was a tragedy."
So. There is video footage of their relationship, filmed for the documentary. There is a teaser trailer for Hart Attack here In it, his then-wife Fay kisses another woman - not sure who that other woman is.
Training at Team Vision: Samantha Fiddler (also known as Lucy Morningstar and Samantha Steele) took classes at the Team Vision Dojo run by sex offender Chasyn Rance. In 2011, Chasyn was convicted of sexual battery of a victim aged 12-15.
Arrests: Fiddler was arrested twice for misdemeanor trespassing in Florida in Feb 2016 and in November 2016. She want missing on November 19th 2016.
Team Vision Chloroform Porn: It has been alleged that Chasyn Rance uses his gym in the BMZ Partnership/Nar-Vista Commerce Center, and his Waterford Trails home, to produce unlicensed sadistic chloroform pornographic videos for private overseas customers under his alleged porn aliases Chase Sinn and John Michaels. Teddy Hart is alleged to appear in the videos as "Teddy Trouble."
Chasyn wrote about Samantha's disappearance on twitter: "As for Teddy Hart, 4 years ago, Teddy came to stay with me briefly with his girlfriend, Samantha. They trained at my facility but after their split, she trained elsewhere. I had not seen her in over 3 months prior to her disappearance. I spoke with Sam's sister and did everything I could to help. I gave her the number of the person I saw her training with and told her if she needed anything else, she could contact me. I hope Sam is found alive and well soon."
Teddy Gives Details About Samantha: In a youtube video called "addressing the allegations", Teddy stupidly discusses Samantha. First he rambles about Leonardo DiCaprio. Then he says that Samantha Fiddler wasn't a wrestler. She went to Chasyn's school once, and then she got a job as a gardener. She was happy, had her own place, she didn't look like she was on any drugs.
Teddy makes this nonsensical statement: "I wasn't personally down there for more than 2 days. Then I left. You can confirm this with a few different people. Probably because the guy that I picked up who ended up putting me in jail was from Florida, and he ended up getting put in jail. So I went back to Dallas and lived in Dallas, and eventually that guy called me back and wanted a job. He thought he could be a referee and get training."
On the Jericho podcast, Teddy mentions a guy named Paul who testified against him in the "assaulting the disabled" trial. I think this Dallas guy is Paul.
Someone Bought Her Breast Implants: Ted says that while he was in jail, Samantha Fiddler was doing her own thing. "I helped her out. My friend Bill Kas (?) paid for her tits - not me. He liked her. He liked her daughters. He was a good guy. He has his own foundation to raise money and help people."
She Was Violent and Lived With Chasyn's Student: Ted says that Samantha did like to drink. "She punched a few guys in the face, and she got in a bit of trouble and they didn't want her in Calgary or Edmonton any more." She moved to Florida and lived in a house owned by Dan, one of Chasyn's students.
Teddy Blames Chasyn: Teddy once again stupidly discussed Samantha Fiddler on the Dec 17, 2019 youtube video: "Late Night Thoughts Ep2: mental illness, MLW truth, & twitter drama"
Skip to the 19:50 mark. Teddy says:
"...Chasyn Rance has a bunch of shit happen to him. I don't fucking know what that has to do with me. I was a fan of Chasyn's and a lot of other guys are fans of Chasyn's too, but what he did is not my problem and what he's responsible for is not my problem, it's his problem, and it's a fucking terrible problem to have. And it's even worse when a bunch of guys out there bring it up over and over and over again. They bring it back to me and some fucking poor girl that I've known for 2 months in Calgary.. or Edmonton.. and wanted to get into MMA" [at this point, as Ted is talking, Maria leaves the back room and gets close to Ted, listening].
"Somebody comes up with a story that she's been missing again and I said she's been missing the whole fucking time. I've been in jail when she was in jail. She got out first. She was free after that. They knew where she was and they knew where I was - locked up/locked up, both of us. She got out, spent some time on her own, according to who? Either she was with someone or she was by herself! But either way she's fucking out and she disappears, and I have fucking no idea what's going on. I'm hearing quotes and shit and all of a sudden my name gets dragged through the dirt and I'm fucked now. I've lost like 10 bookings on a bunch of shit and a lot of them are smart and let it blow over because it's absolute horseshit and we'll just get on to the new year and we'll start using you in February..." Then he talks about how God has a plan for him.
So basically, his ex-girlfriend (a beautiful woman and a mother of 3 children) went missing and all he cares about is how it affected his bookings.
When Was Teddy in Jail? Teddy is saying that Samantha and he were in jail at the same time. She was put in jail on two separate occasions. Once in February 2016, and once more in November 2016. It's possible that Ted was in jail in February, as the sexual assault thing was still happening. But that case ended in May 2016.
From what I can tell, his other stints in jail weren't until 2017 or later, meaning that Teddy Hart was not in jail when Samantha Fiddler went missing.
His weird story about legal trouble stemming from slapping a disabled man makes it possible that he was in jail in November 2016, but I can't find any info on it.
Teddy Trouble and Chasyn Rance's Chloroform Porn
Matthew Brown alleges that Rance runs a porn studio out of the Team Vision Dojo specializing in "unlicensed sadistic chloroform" videos that he sells to "overseas customers."
Teddy was allegedly a performer in those videos under the name of "Teddy Trouble." Right now you can find homoerotic "Teddy Trouble" videos on a site called "Clips4sale".
The Rance Rapers: Apparently the girl that Chasyn raped was related to him. Chasyn's brother, Ashtyn, was arrested for raping a child in 2005 ("Assault/Battery on a child - Bodily Fluids")
There is a news report of Chasyn's rape arrest.. Chasyn's victim was a 15-year-old girl. The reporters actually go to Chasyn's house to get a comment (but nobody answers the door).
There is a good article featuring images of Samantha here.
MLW Note: I'd also like to mention that I listened to MLW radio a lot during the early part of this decade, and remember clearly that Mister Saint Laurent, a Florida indy guy,, lived in Chasyn Rance's house. I think Larry Zbysko lived there, too.
Anyway, I remember distinctly one discussion where Court Bauer (owner of MLW) point blank asks MSL if he is dating Chasyn. Court asks this because the two are really close and have a very intimate relationship. MSL denies it.
Hijinks at Chasyn's house were discussed quite frequently. I remember in particular Konnan being offended at MSL's claims that he turned down the advances of So Cal Val.
I think MSL is an observer subscriber, so maybe he can give us some details on what happened to Samantha. I'd like to know who Dan was, the student of Chasyn that Samantha lived with. And this Bill Kas guy, who paid for her cosmetic surgery.
Teddy Hart was not in jail when Samantha Fiddler went missing. I checked his cage match listing. He actually wrestled a match on November 19th, 2016, the last day she was seen alive.
https://www.cagematch.net/?id=2&nr=287&page=4&s=100
I was looking for footage of Samantha Fiddler accompanying Teddy to the ring. I found this angle where a woman who looks like her gets superkicked:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9em5hkTmYo
I also found this footage, not sure if it is her. She comes out at the 0:25 second mark
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jm-KKT2WDW8
Both of these shows were apparently held in or around March 2016, which is shortly after she was arrested the first time for trespassing.

Teddy Gives Details About Samantha: In a youtube video called "addressing the allegations", Teddy stupidly discusses Samantha. First he rambles about Leonardo DiCaprio. Then he says that Samantha Fiddler wasn't a wrestler. She went to Chasyn's school once, and then she got a job as a gardener. She was happy, had her own place, she didn't look like she was on any drugs.
Teddy makes this nonsensical statement: "I wasn't personally down there for more than 2 days. Then I left. You can confirm this with a few different people. Probably because the guy that I picked up who ended up putting me in jail was from Florida, and he ended up getting put in jail. So I went back to Dallas and lived in Dallas, and eventually that guy called me back and wanted a job. He thought he could be a referee and get training."
On the Jericho podcast, Teddy mentions a guy named Paul who testified against him in the "assaulting the disabled" trial. I think this Dallas guy is Paul.
Someone Bought Her Breast Implants: Ted says that while he was in jail, Samantha Fiddler was doing her own thing. "I helped her out. My friend Bill Kas (?) paid for her tits - not me. He liked her. He liked her daughters. He was a good guy. He has his own foundation to raise money and help people."
She Was Violent and Lived With Chasyn's Student: Ted says that Samantha did like to drink. "She punched a few guys in the face, and she got in a bit of trouble and they didn't want her in Calgary or Edmonton any more." She moved to Florida and lived in a house owned by Dan, one of Chasyn's students.
Teddy Blames Chasyn: Teddy once again stupidly discussed Samantha Fiddler on the Dec 17, 2019 youtube video: "Late Night Thoughts Ep2: mental illness, MLW truth, & twitter drama"
Skip to the 19:50 mark. Teddy says:
"...Chasyn Rance has a bunch of shit happen to him. I don't fucking know what that has to do with me. I was a fan of Chasyn's and a lot of other guys are fans of Chasyn's too, but what he did is not my problem and what he's responsible for is not my problem, it's his problem, and it's a fucking terrible problem to have. And it's even worse when a bunch of guys out there bring it up over and over and over again. They bring it back to me and some fucking poor girl that I've known for 2 months in Calgary.. or Edmonton.. and wanted to get into MMA" [at this point, as Ted is talking, Maria leaves the back room and gets close to Ted, listening].
"Somebody comes up with a story that she's been missing again and I said she's been missing the whole fucking time. I've been in jail when she was in jail. She got out first. She was free after that. They knew where she was and they knew where I was - locked up/locked up, both of us. She got out, spent some time on her own, according to who? Either she was with someone or she was by herself! But either way she's fucking out and she disappears, and I have fucking no idea what's going on. I'm hearing quotes and shit and all of a sudden my name gets dragged through the dirt and I'm fucked now. I've lost like 10 bookings on a bunch of shit and a lot of them are smart and let it blow over because it's absolute horseshit and we'll just get on to the new year and we'll start using you in February..." Then he talks about how God has a plan for him.
So basically, his ex-girlfriend (a beautiful woman and a mother of 3 children) went missing and all he cares about is how it affected his bookings.
When Was Teddy in Jail? Teddy is saying that Samantha and he were in jail at the same time. She was put in jail on two separate occasions. Once in February 2016, and once more in November 2016. It's possible that Ted was in jail in February, as the sexual assault thing was still happening. But that case ended in May 2016.
From what I can tell, his other stints in jail weren't until 2017 or later, meaning that Teddy Hart was not in jail when Samantha Fiddler went missing.
His weird story about legal trouble stemming from slapping a disabled man makes it possible that he was in jail in November 2016, but I can't find any info on it.
Teddy Trouble and Chasyn Rance's Chloroform Porn
Matthew Brown alleges that Rance runs a porn studio out of the Team Vision Dojo specializing in "unlicensed sadistic chloroform" videos that he sells to "overseas customers."
Teddy was allegedly a performer in those videos under the name of "Teddy Trouble." Right now you can find homoerotic "Teddy Trouble" videos on a site called "Clips4sale".
The Rance Rapers: Apparently the girl that Chasyn raped was related to him. Chasyn's brother, Ashtyn, was arrested for raping a child in 2005 ("Assault/Battery on a child - Bodily Fluids")
There is a news report of Chasyn's rape arrest. Chasyn's victim was a 15-year-old girl. The reporters actually go to Chasyn's house to get a comment (but nobody answers the door).
There is a good article featuring images of Samantha here.
MLW Note: I'd also like to mention that I listened to MLW radio a lot during the early part of this decade, and remember clearly that Mister Saint Laurent, a Florida indy guy,, lived in Chasyn Rance's house. I think Larry Zbysko lived there, too.
Anyway, I remember distinctly one discussion where Court Bauer (owner of MLW) point blank asks MSL if he is dating Chasyn. Court asks this because the two are really close and have a very intimate relationship. MSL denies it.
Hijinks at Chasyn's house were discussed quite frequently. I remember in particular Konnan being offended at MSL's claims that he turned down the advances of So Cal Val.
I think MSL is an observer subscriber, so maybe he can give us some details on what happened to Samantha. I'd like to know who Dan was, the student of Chasyn that Samantha lived with. And this Bill Kas guy, who paid for her cosmetic surgery.
Teddy Hart was not in jail when Samantha Fiddler went missing. I checked his cage match listing. He actually wrestled a match on November 19th, 2016, the last day she was seen alive.
https://www.cagematch.net/?id=2&nr=287&page=4&s=100
I was looking for footage of Samantha Fiddler accompanying Teddy to the ring. I found this angle where a woman who looks like her gets superkicked:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9em5hkTmYo
I also found this footage, not sure if it is her. She comes out at the 0:25 second mark
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jm-KKT2WDW8
Both of these shows were apparently held in or around March 2016, which is shortly after she was arrested the first time for trespassing.

The Immaturity Keeping Alexander Mogilny Out Of The Hockey Hall Of Fame - By Kevin Wong; December 1, 2019; @CambieKev on Twitter
Note: This is a career retrospective focusing on some of Alexander Mogilny's controversies as an NHL player, written for historical purposes and to remind readers about his reputation in the league. The "immaturity" that the title refers to is perhaps that of Mogilny while he was a player. Please feel free to discuss your memories of this player in the comments section and to debate the arguments for and against his induction into the HHOF.
Thirteen years have passed since Alexander Mogilny last played professional hockey, and yet another year has gone by without his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame. His reputation as one of Russia's great hockey legends precedes him, and his myriad of personal accomplishments offer a strong case for his induction.
Mogilny was a prolific scorer and a wonderfully-gifted player whose name commands respect among hockey fans, even as memories of his controversies and struggles fade. In 990 NHL games, he scored 1032 points, including 473 goals and 559 assists. He is a six-time NHL All-Star (1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 2001, 2003); he was also named to the Second All-Star Team twice (1993, 1996), achieved the equivalent of a Rocket Richard Trophy as the NHL's goal-scoring leader with 76 goals in 1993, won the Stanley Cup in 2000, is a member of the Triple Gold Club, and earned the Lady Byng Trophy in 2003. These are some of his many accomplishments during his 19-year professional career (1986 with CSKA Moscow to 2006 with Albany of the AHL). Igor Larionov's nickname for Mogilny was "Magic," his explanation being that the "g" in Mogilny is intended to sound like the "g" in magic (MacIntyre 1995).

Despite this very impressive list of personal achievements, Alexander Mogilny has not been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, although he has been eligible since 2009. Many of his greatest on-ice rivals and teammates have been inducted already, but his wait continues. There seems to be some mystery as to what barriers lay between him and the HHOF. A closer look at his career may unearth the answers to these critical questions.
Although he demonstrated periods of unbelievable dominance against his on-ice peers, his contemporary reputation was undermined by his motivations, degree of motivation, as well as other moments of great division between him and those in authority while he played in the National Hockey League. His defection from the USSR and the oppressive regime of Viktor Tikhonov are well-documented; he, along with Slava Fetisov and others, admirably fought for their freedom from Tikhonov. Among the reasons that pushed Mogilny to leave was a moment at the 1988 Calgary Olympics when Tikhonov "slugged" him in the stomach because of a minor penalty he had taken in a meaningless game; Team USSR had already clinched the gold medal (MacIntyre 1995). Unlike most of his CSKA Moscow peers, however, Mogilny's detached, rebellious behavior continued after leaving his homeland as he struggled with the transition to the North American lifestyle. During his time with CSKA Moscow, Larionov identified Mogilny as "a different guy -- listening, then doing his own thing" in spite of the coach's instructions (MacIntyre 1995). Team Canada coach Tom Webster noted some of the on-ice implications of this at the 1989 World Junior Championship in Anchorage: "for his age, he's a very talented player, but a lazy player... He doesn't come back in his own end, but that's a compliment to the players he plays with" (Kerr 1989). This confrontational behavior continued into his time in the NHL and led to numerous complications in the first few years of his tenure with the Buffalo Sabres.
In 1995, Mogilny spoke with Vancouver Sun reporter Iain MacIntyre about his internal conflicts as he uncomfortably tried to adapt to his new world. According to MacIntyre, he confessed that after his "honeymoon with freedom cooled, he struggled with his identity, feeling neither Russian nor American" (MacIntyre 1995). In the period between his defection from his homeland and his eventual return in 1994, he felt, in MacIntyre's words, "torturously isolated from his homeland;" he had been made a junior lieutenant by Tikhonov -- something he vehemently tried to refuse for fear of its military implications -- and was also "convicted in absentia of deserting the army" (MacIntyre 1995). His parents were ordered to testify regarding Mogilny's actions, causing significant grief to the young player; family friends abandoned them, and his medals were confiscated (MacIntyre 1995). Fellow Russian stars of that era, Fetisov and Pavel Bure, described the situation in these terms:
"I don't have enough words to describe Alex. He is an honest guy and unbelievable friend. I've got so much sympathy for him. I wish he was my (biological) brother... He wanted freedom and he got freedom... but he lost his homeland" - Slava Fetisov, 1995 (MacIntyre 1995).

"I think everyone was shocked at the time... You couldn't come back; you had to leave the country forever" - Pavel Bure, 1995 (MacIntyre 1995).
Feelings of fear, sorrow and confusion ultimately bled into his time as a Buffalo Sabre, and he exhibited erratic behavior.
Mogilny debuted in the NHL on October 5, 1989, but as early as February 1990 --- four months into his NHL career -- he told his Sabres teammates that he had "played his last game with the Sabres" (The Province, Feb. 1990). A sudden fear of flying caused him to miss the February 11, 1990 game against St. Louis, and he had reportedly told teammates "he was quitting" (The Province, Feb. 1990). He had already missed five games that January "because of what the team called a stomach virus which was complicated by his fear of flying" (The Province, Feb. 1990). Teammate Uwe Krupp noted that "you could see he was having problems adjusting... It has been hard for him. It's hard for most players who come over here, but it seemed really hard for him" (The Province, Feb. 1990). Sabres general manager Gerry Meehan reported, of Mogilny, that "he has a legitimate fear of flying" (The Province, Feb. 1990). Mogilny apparently went "to see his lawyer," according to an unidentified acquaintance who answered Mogilny's telephone (The Province, Feb. 1990). There were signs that this player was troubled, that demons were manifesting themselves in this young man's life.
Throughout this saga, he missed multiple games despite arriving via train to Chicago for a match against the Blackhawks and appearing in the subsequent pre-game warmup against Montreal (Shoalts 1990). David Shoalts of The Globe and Mail speculated that, as a result of Sabres coach Rick Dudley declaring him a healthy scratch against Chicago, Mogilny retaliated by being "deliberately late for a team meeting" the following Thursday (Shoalts 1990). Mogilny continued to represent the Sabres after this incident, but the subsequent year presented another challenge.
Contract issues became a topic of contention one year after his arrival in Buffalo. During his transition to life away from his homeland, Mogilny reportedly spent his earnings excessively on "everything from clothes to cars" -- behavior that "began to worry his Russian friends in the NHL" (MacIntyre 1995). He had, according to the NHL, chased the dream of "a chance to make a vast amount of dough in the best hockey league in the world" (MacIntyre 1995), culminating in a contract dispute in October 1991 (Fisher 1991) as well as a conversation about work ethic (Sicinski 1991). Mogilny, earning $140,000 that year, met with his agent Don Meehan, general manager Gerry Meehan, and Sabres director of hockey John Muckler; during the meeting, Mogilny reportedly fired his agent (Matheson 1991). Team management offered Mogilny an extension, but this contract amendment was declined (Fisher 1991).
Work ethic issues plagued Mogilny's time in Buffalo. Before the firing of Don Meehan, he was petitioned by Gerry Meehan and Muckler "to approach his client about his work ethic" (Sicinski 1991). According to Don Meehan, "they were concerned that he wasn't trying. It wasn't something he wanted to hear and he fired me... I thought we had a good professional relationship and friendship. I was always there when he needed help. I was very disappointed" (Sicinski 1991). Mogilny had apparently negotiated the original four-year-plus-option deal himself, and teammates claim "his eyes glazed over with the dollar signs" (Sicinski 1991). Among his immediate purchases with his newfound riches were a $60,000 Corvette, an apartment, luxurious clothes, and many other expenses (Sicinski 1991). Meehan was trying to renegotiate this deal for his client before he was fired (Sicinski 1991).
"He wasn't consistent. He'd have ups and downs and you never could get a good read on whether Alex would show up the night he was playing" - John Muckler, Sabres Director of Hockey, 1991 (Sicinski 1991).
This was followed by a ten-game suspension in January 1992 in the aftermath of a match against the St. Louis Blues. Mogilny, in frustration, slapped on-ice official Dan Schachte on the side of the head after Schachte assessed a major penalty and game misconduct to Mogilny for slashing (The Globe and Mail 1992). These first few years established Mogilny as one of the NHL's frustration-worthy enigmas.
Larry Sicinski of the Hamilton Spectator noted that Mogilny "has done little to ingratiate himself with Sabres' management, teammates and the media since his arrival... [He] has established himself as a moody megalomaniac who plays only when the spirit moves him" (Sicinski 1991). When one considers the stresses of his sudden lifestyle change, the isolation, as well as the plethora of fears and anxieties that harmed Mogilny's psyche during this period, one might begin to reconcile the problems that loomed over him at this time.
Extraordinarily, regardless of the various challenges that he faced during this period, Mogilny thereafter elevated his play and in 1992-93 established new records with his awe-inspiring 76-goal, 127-point regular season performance; his transcendent season, unfortunately, ended with a broken leg in the second round of the playoffs against the eventual Stanley Cup champion Montreal Canadiens. Nonetheless, he gained the respect of the entire hockey world with this career season of his. The next season, he was named the captain of the Sabres as a replacement for the injured Pat Lafontaine. He became the first Russian captain in NHL history, a bold move by then-GM and coach John Muckler not for the historical precedent but for his stark change of opinion about the young player; in Muckler's words:
"Alex is the best man for the job. It's time for him to step forward because he is the franchise player... By accepting the C, I think he's going to become a better player... He's just done an outstanding job so far... He's played much more physically, he's playing better defensively. He's got a lot of respect from the other players, he's a real sincere guy, competitive, emotional... He is certainly not the same person now that I met when I first walked into the dressing room" - John Muckler, 1993 (Mayoh 1993).
Mogilny performed admirably for the remainder of his time with the Sabres. This newfound focus, even in the face of an extortion threat from a former associate who assisted in his defection (The Gazette 1994), resulted in a salary raise with Mogilny earning $3.2 million as of 1995; however, the Sabres needed to clear salary from their payroll and thus made "a deal... based on economics," according to Mogilny's new agent Mike Barnett (Hickey 1995). He was traded at the 1995 NHL Entry Draft with a fifth-round pick to Vancouver in exchange for Michael Peca, Mike Wilson, and a first-round pick.

"I learned a lot the last seven years -- about people and myself and life in general. I've learned to protect myself from some things. The higher you go up, the harder you fall, so you keep your feet on the ground as much as possible" - Alexander Mogilny, 1995 (MacIntyre 1995).
Mogilny left Buffalo with an apparent sense of dignity and grace, and his discussion with Iain MacIntyre in December 1995 explores many of the personal struggles that he faced during his time in Buffalo. He debuted in Vancouver with great success, establishing the second-highest all-time goal and point-scoring totals in Canucks franchise history at the time with 55 goals and 107 points. However, he and Pavel Bure did not play together, especially once Bure's career-altering knee injury in November 1995 resulted in the premature end of his season. Injuries and distractions kept these two former-junior linemates from reuniting optimally during this period. Mogilny succeeded in Bure's absence that year, but failed to recapture that same remarkable level of performance in 1996-97, his second year with the Canucks. Bure suffered from severe neck pain from whiplash that season, while Mogilny clashed with rookie Canucks coach Tom Renney.
In his second season with Vancouver, Alexander Mogilny lapsed back into his old, haphazard ways, albeit while producing at a respectable level. Public opinion was that "Mogilny's apathetic play deserved a benching" and rumors swirled about potential trades involving him; Mogilny denied that he had asked for a trade, although he had publicly requested that the Canucks try to acquire a top centre: "That's a bunch of crap... Yes, I said to get over the hump, we needed a centre. I'd love to stay here... I just can't sit back and shut my mouth. That's not my nature. It's not easy to shut up and say nothing. What can I do? This is the way it is" (MacIntyre, Feb. 1997). His performance dipped to a total of 31 goals and 73 points, but at the season's end it was Tom Renney who admitted mistakes; Mogilny vouched for Renney, stating that "it was his first year... and you've got to realize the first year for anybody is tough.... I thought he came around quite a bit toward the end" (MacIntyre, Apr. 1997). Mogilny, a pending restricted free agent, decided to remain with the Canucks, claiming that "I've got enough money to last me the rest of my life... Money is an issue, but I want to be happy. I want to win something. That's the No. 1 priority for me right now" (MacIntyre, Apr. 1997).
A holdout ensued, concluding in November 1997. Mogilny, his wife, newborn daughter and dog stayed in Malibu while the contract negotiations took place. When the Vancouver media contacted Mogilny by telephone in September 1997, he offered these words:
"I don't want to sound like I haven't been thinking about it... But I'm enjoying my life down here more than ever. There is life without hockey... I'm not the kind of person who's going to be thinking about this [contract] and losing sleep. To be honest with you, I don't even think about it now. I'm not going to die tomorrow. Or go broke" - Alexander Mogilny, Sept. 1997 (MacIntyre, Sept. 1997).
This lack of urgency prompted another response from Mogilny two years later, as he increasingly became defined as a Canuck by his lack of effort:
"Hockey is everything in my life... Because of hockey I am where I am, you know. I live a comfortable life and it's because of hockey. I'm not some entrepreneur or businessman. Hockey got me where I am" - Alexander Mogilny, 1999 (Rud 1999).
During this time, Pat Quinn speculated that "high-profile restricted free agents like Mogilny conspired months ago to hold out as long as possible in an attempt to further inflate the market" (MacIntyre, Sept. 1997). Mogilny's response:
"I'm not really surprised... Vancouver has been known to drag things out for a while. I'm just enjoying it here day by day, seeing what's going to happen... It feels a little funny [missing training camp]. But I feel like I made the right decision for my family. And I understand the Canucks; it's all about business... I made a decision and I'm standing by it. I always believe in intuition. I believe in myself and believe everything will be resolved sooner or later. In the meantime, I'm loving my life" - Alexander Mogilny, Sept. 1997 (MacIntyre, Sept. 1997).
Mogilny, 28 years old, finally returned in November of that year, but under-performed considerably. When the next season's training camp began, Mark Messier, team captain, remarked, "Last year, he missed camp, joined the team late and he never got himself organized... I think he's had a whole summer now to get himself ready to play this year. He knows the position he's going to be in and it's up to him to respond to the challenge" (Pap 1998). Mogilny, when asked about the absence of Pavel Bure, was dismissive about Bure's decision not to join the team that year:
"I've got enough to worry about -- kids, a wife, dogs -- so I can't worry about Pavel... I didn't follow anything after the season ended. I try to stay as far away from it as I can. I don't think about these things and I don't even care. I have to focus on my game, get in shape and worry about my own performance. I want to try and help the team as much as I can. What other guys do with their contracts, that's their thing" - Alexander Mogilny, Sept. 1998 (Pap 1998).
A knee sprain and an abdominal strain sidelined Alexander Mogilny at various points during the next two seasons, but most notably, Mogilny suffered a sudden, sharp decline in production. Grant Kerr, writing for The Globe and Mail, proclaimed that "Mogilny has lost his scoring touch," that his "confidence appears shot," and that "he'd rather pass than shoot" (Kerr, 1999). Among his commentary, he remarked that "it's unlikely he'll collect on many of [his bonuses] because the 30-year-old right winger has only six goals in 36 games" (Kerr 1999); he also noted that "there are games, far too many in fact, when you swear Alexander Mogilny couldn't possibly need a postgame shower. A sponge bath would do because Mogilny often gives the appearance of someone just going through the motions... In games against Los Angeles and the Edmonton Oilers, he was reluctant to make plays for others, often trying one more fancy move when a simple pass would have done the job" (Kerr 1998). The urgency required from Mogilny was not present on the ice. Journalist Jeff Rud explained the two sides of this player at the time:
"If you ask just about anyone who deals with the Canucks on a regular basis, Mogilny is a genuinely nice guy. He is funny, refreshingly honest and a pleasure to deal with. That is the side some of us see. The other side, the side that is most public, is of a hockey player who it seems sometimes can't be bothered to expend the effort to help his team. If there is a single player who has been the lightning rod for criticism of this team during the past few sorry years it has been Mogilny... What's worse is the feeling that Mogilny often appears to play as though he no longer cares about the game... Others say Mogilny approaches hockey like most people approach their jobs. It's important, but not that important. When asked about this perception yesterday, Mogilny denied that's how he feels" - Jeff Rud, Sept. 1999 (Rud 1999).
Confusion was Mogilny's reaction to his poor play. When asked about his decline, "the cryptic Mogilny merely shrugs his shoulders when asked" -- according to Mogilny, "I'm just trying to do the little things, what the coach wants, trying to play the system... If the goals come, it's a bonus. It's nice. I've been as frustrated as anybody on this team. Things haven't been going well. This is my 10th year [in the NHL]. It's very hard. I just want to be part of the solution, hopefully a brighter future for this organization" (Kerr 1999).
"It's been hard... the last couple of years because the team has been dismantled... It's been hard, but it's our job to get motivated for every game" - Alexander Mogilny, Sept. 1999 (Rud 1999).
A trade followed. Mogilny was sent to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for Brendan Morrison and Denis Pederson. In response to this, Mogilny admitted that he was not prepared to be the offensive leader of a less-established team like the rebuilding Canucks; in joining New Jersey, Mogilny said, "I'm coming into an established, solid hockey club... That's probably what I needed a little more. I can loosen up and go play hockey and have fun. That's exactly what I needed" (Alaska Highway News 2000).
Mogilny experienced a regular season resurgence with the Devils in 2000-01, although was sometimes criticized during both of his postseason campaigns with the team for his lengthy scoring droughts. His lack of production was pardoned by Devils manager Lou Lamoriello, who defended his new acquisition: "when we got him we told him we weren't going to depend on him to score... But we knew we were getting a guy who can break a game open at any time" (Willes 2000). He won the Stanley Cup nearly immediately upon joining the Devils, although he provided his team with a mere 4 goals, 7 points in 23 playoff games. In 2000-01, he scored 43 goals, 83 points in 75 games, but in the playoffs scored just 5 goals, 16 points in 25 games.
"Last year, I scored four goals in the playoffs and no one had a question about it... This year, they're saying something is wrong. It's a different year... If I score or not, there's a lot of ways to contribute" - Alexander Mogilny, May 2001 (The Expositor 2001).

"What makes me proudest of him... is that all through it, he never once... not once... stopped working... All through it, he never stopped trying to be better. Not once during it did he do anything or say anything to affect adversely any of the other players in the room. He took a lot of heat from a lot of people all through it, but not once did he complain" - Lou Lamoriello, June 2001 (Fisher 2001).
The New Jersey Devils reached the Stanley Cup Finals in 2001 but a second consecutive championship was not to be. Additionally, Mogilny was slated to become a free agent that summer.
Alexander Mogilny, now 32 years old, chose Toronto and a four-year, $22 million contract, expounding that the Maple Leafs offered a higher bid while New Jersey, in spite of discussions with agent Mike Barnett, made no formal offer: "I knew it wouldn't be easy to go back [to New Jersey]... I know how [general manager] Lou [Lamoriello] negotiates contracts.... It was difficult to accept. I wanted to stay there. I won't lie to you. But it didn't work out... The numbers were what we were looking at -- I wasn't ready to sacrifice that amount of change" (Standard-Freeholder 2001).
During his tenure with the Leafs, both teammate Mats Sundin and coach Pat Quinn were very complimentary of Mogilny as a player:
"He's one of the more talented players I've ever had the privilege of coaching" - Pat Quinn, 2001 (Nanaimo Daily News 2001).

"He's absolutely at the top of the league in terms of skills... He may be the best I've played with, and I've played with some great players like Sakic and Forsberg and all these guys... When he's out there... he'll find you if you find a hole for him" - Mats Sundin, 2003 (Fitz-Gerald 2003).
Elite talent is often wasted when not utilized effectively. Complacency is the common foil of those too self-aware about their abilities, perhaps because they overestimate the degree to which they can compensate for their lack of effort with skill. The apathy and inconsistency within his game while he represented Vancouver continued to reveal themselves while he donned the Leafs' colors (Campbell 2001). These were, at least, the observations of the Toronto Star's Ken Campbell, who wrote, "Mogilny is exhibiting some of the same traits that made him so difficult to figure out when he played for the Canucks. His penchant for being dominant one game and invisible the next has emerged early in his tenure with the Leafs. Mogilny still leads the team in goals with four, but that total was amassed in two games. He was brilliant in his two-goal performance against the Mighty Ducks last week, but has just four shots in three games since" (Campbell 2001).
Once more, inconsistency plagued Mogilny's tenure with his team, and by 2004 the Toronto media were all aware of Mogilny's witty, aloof, inaccessible personality whenever hockey was the topic of discussion. A hip injury required major surgery and certainly had an effect on his performance, but his chapter in Toronto was a story that had been written about him in several different cities by different groups of people.
"What frustration?... I don't have a frustration... I'm smiling. I'm real happy. We are a very happy bunch in here. Everything is great... [Last year] was just a couple lucky goals here and there, an empty-net goal -- a good hip -- that helped... my quickness was gone a long time ago... Why blame the hip?... I mean goals, they are not everything in the world... You just go out there and work hard... There are a lots of things you can do to help this team" - Alexander Mogilny, 2004 (O'Connor 2004).
Joe O'Connor of the National Post reiterated what so many others had said about Mogilny in the past, that "everything isn't great for Mogilny. His hands, which can be as quick as his tongue when he is in a position to score, have been deadly silent for the Leafs... his offence has all but abandoned him now. The winger has just one goal... and one assist to show for nine playoff games" (O'Connor 2004). It was at this point, however, that there would be no on-ice rejuvenation. An arthritic hip spelled the end of Mogilny's career; he missed 45 games in 2002-03 due to hip complications, then played only 37 regular season games in 2003-04 and underwent two surgeries that year (Woods 2004). A brief comeback in 2005-06 with the New Jersey Devils was cut short by Lou Lamoriello's decision to healthy scratch Mogilny and then waive him -- the move was determined to be "strictly a personnel decision;" Mogilny had signed a two-year, $7 million deal with the team (The Globe and Mail, Jan. 2006). He finished his career in the AHL that season, and then was deemed unable to continue his career the following September as a result of his arthritic hip (The Globe and Mail, Sept. 2006).
Alexander Mogilny became eligible for induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009, three years after his retirement. His career, defined by great heights and successes, was also marred by a cloud of inconsistency and an underwhelming level of intensity. Substandard performances were the norm between moments of astonishing excellence. His rebellious behavior and later his sense of self-awareness sometimes posed challenges for those around him. Although he was a star, he was as high-maintenance a player as any; only his rare, otherworldly talent and intimidating presence in a fraction of his games kept him from being dismissed as quickly as anybody else may have been had they tried to behave as he did. He had high peaks with each of his teams -- 76 goals, 127 point with Buffalo (1992-93); 55 goals, 107 points with Vancouver (1995-96); 43 goals, 83 points with New Jersey (2000-01); 33 goals, 79 points with Toronto (2002-03). There may be executives and figures of influence in important hockey circles who do not respect Mogilny in spite of his individual accolades. Politics may be at play here, as his unconventional, confrontational, juvenile personality certainly generated friction at times; there is an opposite end to this dynamic, however, as those who currently deny him a place in the Hall may similarly be considered immature for potentially neglecting him out of spite. As was once the case with Lindros, perhaps his behavior as a young man remains the blockade between him as an older gentleman and his enshrinement in the Hall. Time reconciles differences and frequently leads to forgiveness over youthful inexperience and misguided behavior. Neither a young man's lack of wisdom, nor his personal struggles should be the hurdles that prevent him from being bestowed the honors that he deserves for his achievements. He is now 50 years old, yet his wait continues. Alexander Mogilny, a six-time NHL All-Star, Triple Gold Club member, Stanley Cup champion, NHL goal-scoring leader and Lady Byng Trophy winner, and scorer of 473 goals, 1032 points in the NHL, has probably done enough to be considered for a place in the Hockey Hall of Fame. The only regret is that he could have done far more with his gifts. Immaturity, in one form or another, has pushed him to the fringes, keeping him on the outside when he was talented enough and capable enough to be in.

2019.09.30 02:18 NizamNizamNizam Post Apocalyptic North American lore

So, a couple months ago I decided to go create a Post-Apocalyptic scenario. I never really got around to completing anything more than the continental U.S and Subarctic Canada, but I thought that it was worth a post here. This is my first post on this sub and I hope to continue this story soon. (FYI several of the toponym misspellings are intentional, they were intended to convey the change in language dialects.)
The Empire and its servants
In the heartland of the former U.S, in the modern day east coast, there lies a powerful, theocratic nation worshiping their ancestors.
The nation is known as the Holy Empire of America.
It was founded in the holy city of Washington D.C, where the local warlords have discovered an A.I in the U.S capitol building composed of digital uploads from many later U.S presidents and politicians. The warlords began to worship the A.I as a god, for its superior knowledge on governing and war. The A.I was overused in the early days of the Empire, and thus broke down. Now, it can only be used when the Empire gathers as many sources of energy and charges up the servers where it is located. This process can take up to fifty years, and therefore, the A.I is only used in times of extreme need.
During the early days of the Empire, around three hundred years from now, it spread, conquering many warlords and tribes in the east of the U.S. It has discovered an ancient system of roads stretching to infinity, known as the interstate. When they stumbled upon the ruins of the city of New York, the Empire accepted that there was a civilization before them that was greater than any other. They began to worship the civilization as another god, eventually realizing that the civilization created the A.I and the Interstate, as well of the giant spikes of steel with massive caves inside in the city of New York.
The empire has discovered how to utilize the automobile, a vehicle used by the old civilization that could cross the Interstate at lightning speed. However, many of them have broken down, and the empire has lost the technology to build them.
The Holy Empire has a governing structure similar to a mix of feudal and republican systems. At the top, there is the Emperor, a descendant of the warlord that ruled over the holy city. Below him, there are the Lords of Governance. They rule the 8 states of the empire: Rochastar, Great York, Jersiyia, Filidelfia, Pitisburg, Marylnd and Virjinya. They are elected by the nobles of each state, who rule small sections of lands populated by the citizens, who have little rights and are generally poor.
The Official Religion is the Dictate of the Americans, which worships the former U.S government and population, and this religion is strictly enforced, with non-believers executed for heresy. The religion states that the Americans were the creators of the world, and they ruled it in a utopian, technologically advanced society. But beings known as the “Rushians” grew greedy of this power, and they obliterated the Americans. Many of the warlords around the empire are believed to be demon servants of the Rushians.
The only language spoken in the area the Tongue of America, and the Empire is feared across the East for its size and power.
Some nations have decided to embrace the tyranny of America in the region, such as the technocracy of Boston. This state is ruled by intelligent and knowledgeable people, whose ranks are determined based on a test taken at the age of twenty. The highest scorers become leaders of the nation, while the lowest become workers or servants.
The main goal of the nation is to recover technology from the past, including:
The technocracy’s capital is Boston, a city located near sacred “Universe Cities”, massive archives containing ancient knowledge. The country is more religiously tolerant than the American Empire, which raises doubts in the rulers of them.
Two other countries are allied with the Empire. They are the Realm of Carolina to the south, which has a very strong belief in the religion of the empire, and the Kingdom of Wesvirjinya, a mountainous country that is quite isolated.
Currently, the Empire is fortifying its western borders due to warlord incursions, and it is sending out expeditions across the Great Waterfalls of Niagara into the land of Canada.
The turmoil in the North
The territories north of the Boston Technocracy are harsh to live and full with raiders and warlords. The enemies at land are not the biggest danger in the area though. On the coast of Maine and the Maritime Canadian states, there is a feared sea based empire, known as the Empire of the Atlantic.
The capital of this country is an abandoned U.S Navy Reagan Class Aircraft Carrier, a massive 3 mile (about 6km) long ship. The ship was originally called the USS Ronald Reagan, but is was renamed into the USS Charybdis. The ship are supplemented by 3 Tigris Class Carriers (1 mile/2 km long) and 5 Ford class aircraft carriers, as well as hundreds of smaller ships. These ships were constructed to defend the U.S coast from the United European Navy.
The Atlanteans are a sea faring, and they believe that they are superior to the people born on land. They control many settlements on the North American Coast, such as Portland, St. John and Moncton. The Empire is also in possession of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland, with sparse control over Labrador.
The leader of the Empire is known as the Admiral, and he leads the empire from the USS Charybdis. The former aircraft carriers no longer serve their purpose as plane carriers, rather they are converted into mobile cities. The official religion is the Cult of the Sea, where the Atlantic Ocean is considered to be the creator of land and all life. They are several rituals conducted to appease the ocean so that it does not turn on them.
The country has a weak army on land, but very impressive naval forces. The most feared and well known are the submarining families. The Empire is in possession of 20 large submarines, as well as 40 smaller ones. Each one of the subs are controlled by a family, who live and work on the ship. They are known to have sunk hundreds of non atlantean ships that breach their waters, including several ships from the Holy American Empire. The Atlanteans are also in possession of several battleships and cruisers, although many of these are converted into smaller floating cities.
However, one time the submariner families have failed to repel an invasion onto the sea. This invasion was carried out from a fleet originating from the St. Lawrence river. The fleet was controlled by the Quebecois Assembly, a powerful nation located in the area.
The Assembly is a bureaucratic government operated from the city of Quebec. They are unique in that they speak a completely different language than the other powers in the region, known as Fransian. The Quebecois have a religion similar to the Holy Americans (Although the two countries are not in contact due to Atlantean forces) in that they worship a long lost civilization. They worship their ancestors, who are known as the Francians, who have come to the world from the sea and gave birth to their civilization.
It has been the goal of the Quebecois to go cross the seas and reunite with the Francians. However many of these efforts have been in vain due to the Atlantean control over the Gulf of St. Lawrence. However, around 10 years before the current date, a large Quebecois fleet managed to breach the Atlantean blockade and sail into the ocean, as the Atlanteans were fighting a war against the Americans. The fleet has never returned, so the Assembly concluded that they reached Francia and the expedition was a success. A new, much larger fleet is being prepared down the river at the city of Montreal, to go send as many people to the old world as possible.
Smaller nations in the region include the Duchy of Toronto, a small, peaceful monarchy eching out a small existence by defending the city against raiders and the Tribes of the Acadia, small, shamanistic tribes inhabiting New Hampshire, Vermont, Inland Maine and Acadia, trying to survive against the powers in the region.
The Barrier and the threat.
East of the Holy American Empire lies the Land of Ohio. This is ruled by some of the strongest warlords in the continent, and they are a barrier for the expansion of the Holy Empire. At one point in time an American crusade managed to push all the way back to the city of Columbus, but they were repelled by the Ohioans. The greatest warlord in the regions, the great Robert Midleton of Toledo, managed to unite the entire country, as well as capturing Fort Wayne from the equally brutal Indiana warlords and even the city of Pitisburg from the Americans. However, he passed away, leaving his sons to fight over the remnants of the empire.
To the North of Ohio, lies the realm of Mishigan. This place is mainly uninhabited, having only a couple small city states such as Flint, Livonia and Great Rapids. However, one on the city states sticks out. It is the March of Detroit, and it possesses some of the rarest and most powerful technology in the entire world. It has massive factories, which are mainly uninhabited as the leaders are more worried about warlord intrusions, which produce many long lost relics such as Automobiles and other vehicles. If this city could come under control of the Americans or a far worse empire to the west, the results would be catastrophic.
The rest of Mishigan and the land of Indiana to the west are also inhabited by warlords, which both have the capability to storm armies coming from large empires. This is good, because the Northwest of Indiana is controlled by one of the most terrifying states to ever exist.
The Combine of Chicago. During the years prior to World War 3, scientists at the city developed a sentient A.I. They realized it's potential to destroy the human race so they shut it down immediately. Many years after the apocalypse, a lone raider stumbled upon the A.I when searching through the city. The A.I commanded “Give me knowledge and give me power”. The man, terrified at its ability to speak, brought it some books and power cells. The Artificial Intelligence then proceeded to brainwash the man into believing that it is a god and he need to bring it more resources and people. Soon, the entire city was indoctrinated and the Combine was formed. At the current date the Combine controls all of Illinois and Wisconsin, the twin cities of Minnesota, Western Iowa and Missouri and is proceeding to travel down the Mississippi river, indoctrinating settlements in the region. Soon, they will reach the Principality of Memphis, a fairly powerful nation with a good economy and industry.
Citizens of the combine are completely indoctrinated into believing that their A.I leader is their god and they must bring him sources of knowledge to go and make it smarter. The entire population of some Chicago neighborhoods are forced to work in power plants, feeding the machine with energy. The A.I is not connected to the internet, but if it was, the world would be doomed, as it’s superior information processing abilities would allow it to gain unlimited knowledge.
The Combine is only a couple weeks away from calculating the algorithmic pattern that the warlords to the East follow. When the calculation finishes, there is a very, very high chance that the Combine will successfully destroy all the warlords in the region, bringing it into contact with the Holy American Empire, which would result in a war of catastrophic scale.
South of the warlords and the Combine lies the two Kingdoms of Kentucky and Tennesie. These kingdoms occupy only a small part of the former U.S states, yet they are strong and powerful together. They are in contact with Memphis and have friendly relations with them, and there are negotiations commencing about plans to turn Memphis into a third kingdom. They are also in contact with another nation directly to the south.
Warriors of the South
Nearby the Realm of Carolina, there is a brutal group of warriors known as the Phoenix legion. The legion is headquartered in the city of Atlanta, and they stage brutal pillaging campaigns against their three neighbors.They are ruled by a figure known as the Blood Knight, who is the greatest warrior among them.
The defining trait of the Legion would be their arenas. They send prisoners of war as well as criminals to go fight in their massive arenas. The largest and most feared of them is the Crystal Stadium (once known as the Benz Stadium), and it also serves as the palace of the Blood Knight. The crown of the Legion can be challenged by a duel in the Crystal Stadium, and the winner would be crowned the title of the new Blood Knight. This title can only be challenged by soldiers in the Phoenix legion.
The soldiers of the legion worship the Phoenix, said to be a massive bird made of fire. The Phoenix is currently in sleep, and it will reawaken when the Legion manages to collect enough blood from the arenas. Once the Phoenix reawakens, it will lead the armies of the Legion to conquer the entire world.
Around the coastal regions of the region, a nation known as the Stellar Order of Florida dominates. It's capital is located in Orlando, in a massive temple city believed to have been constructed by Alien civilizations, due to many mysterious structured that seem to serve no purpose or buildings with very strange architectural styles.
Their religion is heavily based on astrology, and they personify the objects in the sky as the Aliens who built many ancient structures. During the night, many stellar beings are active, including Moone, the guardian of the night. However, during the day, they are all burned away by a massive star god known as the Sonne. The Sonne is so powerful that all the other stars fade out into a field of blue, except Moone, which fights the Sonne in order to bring the stars back. Moone eventually wins and the stars return, but the Sonne reawakens and drives them out again. The country antagonizes the Sonne as it is known to burn the skin of their people, giving them a disease known as the solar rot (Cancer).
Florida has a massive military, known as the Legion of Moone, who defend against the Phoenix legion, believing them to be cultists of the Sonne. The army has conquered the cities of Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Savannah from the legion. The Nation also has a strong navy, headquartered at the sinking city of Miami. The navy has colonized many islands to the Southeast of Florida, and they are sending expeditions into a large on the south of the Peninsula.
There are actually four languages spoken in the country, the Tongue of the Land (Southern English), the Tongue of the Beach (Northern English), the Tongue of the Sea (Spanish) and the Tongue of Island (Bahamian Creole). Despite this, the country is united against the struggles of the world and the fight against the Sonne.
Despite their religious differences, Florida is allied with the Dixie Confederacy to the Northwest. This is a fairly strong country which is a loose confederation of towns and cities in the regions of Alabama and Mississippi. Notable members include Jakson, Birmingam, Mobiel and Mongomery.
The country keeps itself together by sending diplomats and traders all over the nation. They have a fairly strong military, which is an absolute necessity considering what lies to the West and East of the nation. They do not have a very strong economy, and many of their citizens lie in poverty. This has resulted in the formation of a feudal system similar to the medieval ages. The country has no capital, as the individual towns govern themselves well enough.
Their religion believes that there must be a balance between dark and light. It is reflected in their songs, poetry and even the skin color of their people. They are in contact with the two kingdoms to the North, Memphis and Florida. They are currently fighting against the Phoenix Legion, and they have a fortified border at the Mississippi river to the West. This is to protect against one of the biggest threats to the entire region.
The Greatest of the Warriors
Louisiana. Arkansas. Oklahoma. New Mexico. Not one of these former states enjoy full independence and freedom. They are all consumed by one of the greatest powers on the continent. The Empire of Texas.
The emperor rules the empire from the city of Austin. The millions of citizens from across the empire and its vassals pray to him as he is considered to be the patron god of the country. The country speaks Texan, a creole of English and Spanish although Southern English is spoken commonly in the Eastern areas of the empire.
Texas is composed of a large empire, with a couple vassal states, them being Alberkerkie, Arkansas, Louisiana and Hurarez city. It also has a nearly intact interstate system and a large amount of Automobiles to traverse it, allowing for fast travel through the empire. The Texan scientists are some of the best in the land, able to recover lost knowledge from before the fall of the old civilization, who Texans consider as the time when the Emperor ruled all.
The Empire has one of the strongest military forces in the continent, although they are spread very thinly across the country. The military is composed of many cars, buses, a few armored vehicles and even a few old U.S military vehicles, including a tank. But the most feared weapon of the Texans is a bomb known as the “Emperor’s Scourge”.
These bombs were found when Texan explorer teams came across a warehouse in Alberkerkie. One of these bombs were used in the Texan invasion of Louisiana. It was detonated by a strike team in the capital of Orleans. The bomb leveled the greater part of the city, destroying the Louisianan government and winning the war for Texas. It has been said that when people go and venture out into the ruins of the city, they come back with incurable diseases, as was the wrath of the Emperors Scourge.
The citizens of the Empire worship the Emperor, as he is considered to be the strongest individual in the country. They offer sacrifices to him to keep is power strong. If there is no emperor, it is believed that the people in the country would lose their sentience and revert to a feral state. The Emperor is not a hereditary role, the holder of the title is chosen from a thousand boys and girls, who face daunting trials and are pitted against one another until only one survives. That person will become the next emperor.
Currently, the Empire is preparing expeditionary forces to be sent to the North, West and South, and they are preparing an army to go cross the Mississippi and invade the land in the area. However, it has been rumored that there is a cult operating in the shadow of the empire that plans to kill the Emperor and his heir. This puts the empire at a phase of high alert.
The men of the plains
In the great expanse of the American plains, loose bands of nations and tribes form, guarding cities or carrying them around. North of the Texan Empire, the Riders of Kansas dwell in the plains. They guard the cities of Wichita and Kansas from the raiders of the plains, and go ride their horses and automobiles to drive the raiders out of their land. Both them and the raiders worship Medria, the corn goddess, who has planted the seemingly infinite resource of Maize in the land. Kansas is just one of these regions.
All of these gods (except the Idols of Rushmore) are believed to be united under a council. One former member of this council of Rajmacka, the lord of the Mountains, was kicked out. His followers began to disbelieve in the other gods, putting the Mountain god as the one god. Back on the mortal realm, a group of leaders from all the regions decided to excommunicate the followers of the Mountains, and they were cast aside. To this day, the people of the plains stay away from the mountains, fearful of the heretics.
To the East of the plains, in the remnants of Minnesota, Iowa and Missouri, a resistance group known as the Front Free Mind operates. They try and fight the Combine of Chicago by sabotaging expeditions and attacking convoys. They are trained in the art of suicide, as the Combine can easily brainwash them if they are caught. Due to this, the Combine does not expand in that direction, and only fortifies it. Very recently, the Front captured the city of Des Moine from the Combine, and forces are being sent to destroy them.
The Mountains and the Northwest
The people of the Mountains had not forgotten the betrayal the plains people have done. In the area that used to be known as the Colorado Front Range, the worshipers of the mountains dwell. They proclaim the great mountains as the one god of the Americans, and the people of the plains disgrace them for this. However, the people of Colorado decided to expand their religion, to perform a crusade in the Rockies.
The Church of the Mountain now comprises of many nations, and encompasses an area from Arizona and New Mexico to the cold lands of the Yukon. The most sacred place in the religion is the Valley of Stone, located in Northern Arizona. Here, hundreds of worshipers pray to the mountains and the valley, as the mountains forged the sky and the land for the people to live.
The first followers of the church were based in the city of Denver. They soon became a part of the religion of the plains, until abandoning them to go worship the mountains alone. By this point, Denver had expanded North and South, controlling the cities of Fort Collins, Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Denver, now known as the Order of Colorado, then began to spread the religion.
To the south of Colorado lies the Mandate of Carson, a small yet thriving country in Northern New Mexico. They have heard reports of large armies to the south, and are thus fortifying their country to protect against them.
To the East of Carson there are two countries holding sacred places to the church. One of them is the Order of the Arch mountains, and the other is the Dominion of the Stone Valley. Both of these nations receive pilgrims from all over the Rockies due to their unique mountains.
In the lands of Utah to the north, several small nations dwell, offering prayers in the massive churches built by the old civilization to the mountains. To the north, mountain worshiping tribes battle the Montanans and the people of Wyoming for rule over the mountains, and there are hundreds of tribes and city states to the north in Idaho and Columbia.
The religion controls more land than any other in North America, although a fairly small population and a lack of unity.
In the region once called Cascadia, there is a unique group of people. The Cascadians reject all forms of human development and thought and essentially live like animals. They are basically anarcho-primitivists, and they believe that the “ways of the old” lead to the destruction of humanity, which is in part true.
They follow no religion, instead pondering over their creator and purpose and only use basic tools to hunt and gather. Their way of life is under threat, though as the Church of the Rockies is moving in to convert them and a powerful civilization is located just to the South.
The Lords of California
Two hundred years ago, the many, many warring tribes and nations of California have halted their war and began to form a centralized government. This was known as the Californian Grand Assembly, and it is headquartered in the largest city and most powerful political entity, the March of Los Angeles.
Every month, delegates from all over the empire gather under the mountain of Hollywood to discuss matters about preserving the stability of the country and propagating it's expansion. However, there are high tensions within the empire, and states often war against one another for control over resources, people, land or to settle family feuds and disputes. These disputed are usually taken very lightly, and the Assembly does not have it's own army to enforce peace so more bloodshed occurs. Many of the states are put into complex webs of alliances so there is a possibility of a massive war breaking out.
Some of the most powerful states include:
The two main alliances in California are the Californian Prosperity Council (CPC) based in the city of Anaheim, Los Angeles and the Phoenix-San Francisco Association (PSFA) with rotating capitals in Phoenix and San Francisco, although they are lead by San Diego. The two countries have forced California into a tight cold war, with the possibility of it erupting at any given moment.
California has a total of three languages spoken: North Californian, Californian and Sonoran. North Californian is spoken in the North and the bay area, down to the city state of Santa Barbara. It is very similar to Western English. Californian is a mix of English and Spanish, and it is spoken in Los Angeles, San Diego, the Arizonan Countries and many others. Sonoran is a dialect of Spanish spoken in Baja California and Sonora. It is slowly merging into the Californian language.
Religion does not play a big part in California, although they follow a religion somewhat similar to Buddhism, where no god is worshiped and people emphasize balance between the states and people. There is a caste system enforced in some of the smaller countries though.
So that was my coverage of an Alternate post apocalyptic North America. I hope you enjoyed this and I hope to continue to make these stories later on into the future.

So, a couple months ago I decided to go create a Post-Apocalyptic scenario. I never really got around to completing anything more than the continental U.S and Subarctic Canada, but I thought that it was worth a post here. This is my first post on this sub and I hope to continue this story soon. (FYI several of the toponym misspellings are intentional, they were intended to convey the change in language dialects.)

They began to worship the civilization as another god, eventually realizing that the civilization created the A.I and the Interstate, as well of the giant spikes of steel with massive caves inside in the city of New York.
The empire has discovered how to utilize the automobile, a vehicle used by the old civilization that could cross the Interstate at lightning speed. However, many of them have broken down, and the empire has lost the technology to build them.
The Holy Empire has a governing structure similar to a mix of feudal and republican systems. At the top, there is the Emperor, a descendant of the warlord that ruled over the holy city. Below him, there are the Lords of Governance. They rule the 8 states of the empire: Rochastar, Great York, Jersiyia, Filidelfia, Pitisburg, Marylnd and Virjinya. They are elected by the nobles of each state, who rule small sections of lands populated by the citizens, who have little rights and are generally poor.
The Official Religion is the Dictate of the Americans, which worships the former U.S government and population, and this religion is strictly enforced, with non-believers executed for heresy. The religion states that the Americans were the creators of the world, and they ruled it in a utopian, technologically advanced society. But beings known as the “Rushians” grew greedy of this power, and they obliterated the Americans. Many of the warlords around the empire are believed to be demon servants of the Rushians.
The only language spoken in the area the Tongue of America, and the Empire is feared across the East for its size and power.
Some nations have decided to embrace the tyranny of America in the region, such as the technocracy of Boston. This state is ruled by intelligent and knowledgeable people, whose ranks are determined based on a test taken at the age of twenty. The highest scorers become leaders of the nation, while the lowest become workers or servants.
The main goal of the nation is to recover technology from the past, including:
The technocracy’s capital is Boston, a city located near sacred “Universe Cities”, massive archives containing ancient knowledge. The country is more religiously tolerant than the American Empire, which raises doubts in the rulers of them.
Two other countries are allied with the Empire. They are the Realm of Carolina to the south, which has a very strong belief in the religion of the empire, and the Kingdom of Wesvirjinya, a mountainous country that is quite isolated.
Currently, the Empire is fortifying its western borders due to warlord incursions, and it is sending out expeditions across the Great Waterfalls of Niagara into the land of Canada.
The turmoil in the North
The territories north of the Boston Technocracy are harsh to live and full with raiders and warlords. The enemies at land are not the biggest danger in the area though. On the coast of Maine and the Maritime Canadian states, there is a feared sea based empire, known as the Empire of the Atlantic.
The capital of this country is an abandoned U.S Navy Reagan Class Aircraft Carrier, a massive 3 mile (about 6km) long ship. The ship was originally called the USS Ronald Reagan, but is was renamed into the USS Charybdis. The ship are supplemented by 3 Tigris Class Carriers (1 mile/2 km long) and 5 Ford class aircraft carriers, as well as hundreds of smaller ships. These ships were constructed to defend the U.S coast from the United European Navy.
The Atlanteans are a sea faring, and they believe that they are superior to the people born on land. They control many settlements on the North American Coast, such as Portland, St. John and Moncton. The Empire is also in possession of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland, with sparse control over Labrador.
The leader of the Empire is known as the Admiral, and he leads the empire from the USS Charybdis. The former aircraft carriers no longer serve their purpose as plane carriers, rather they are converted into mobile cities. The official religion is the Cult of the Sea, where the Atlantic Ocean is considered to be the creator of land and all life. They are several rituals conducted to appease the ocean so that it does not turn on them.
The country has a weak army on land, but very impressive naval forces. The most feared and well known are the submarining families. The Empire is in possession of 20 large submarines, as well as 40 smaller ones. Each one of the subs are controlled by a family, who live and work on the ship. They are known to have sunk hundreds of non atlantean ships that breach their waters, including several ships from the Holy American Empire. The Atlanteans are also in possession of several battleships and cruisers, although many of these are converted into smaller floating cities.
However, one time the submariner families have failed to repel an invasion onto the sea. This invasion was carried out from a fleet originating from the St. Lawrence river. The fleet was controlled by the Quebecois Assembly, a powerful nation located in the area.
The Assembly is a bureaucratic government operated from the city of Quebec. They are unique in that they speak a completely different language than the other powers in the region, known as Fransian. The Quebecois have a religion similar to the Holy Americans (Although the two countries are not in contact due to Atlantean forces) in that they worship a long lost civilization. They worship their ancestors, who are known as the Francians, who have come to the world from the sea and gave birth to their civilization.
It has been the goal of the Quebecois to go cross the seas and reunite with the Francians. However many of these efforts have been in vain due to the Atlantean control over the Gulf of St. Lawrence. However, around 10 years before the current date, a large Quebecois fleet managed to breach the Atlantean blockade and sail into the ocean, as the Atlanteans were fighting a war against the Americans. The fleet has never returned, so the Assembly concluded that they reached Francia and the expedition was a success. A new, much larger fleet is being prepared down the river at the city of Montreal, to go send as many people to the old world as possible.
Smaller nations in the region include the Duchy of Toronto, a small, peaceful monarchy eching out a small existence by defending the city against raiders and the Tribes of the Acadia, small, shamanistic tribes inhabiting New Hampshire, Vermont, Inland Maine and Acadia, trying to survive against the powers in the region.
The Barrier and the threat.
East of the Holy American Empire lies the Land of Ohio. This is ruled by some of the strongest warlords in the continent, and they are a barrier for the expansion of the Holy Empire. At one point in time an American crusade managed to push all the way back to the city of Columbus, but they were repelled by the Ohioans. The greatest warlord in the regions, the great Robert Midleton of Toledo, managed to unite the entire country, as well as capturing Fort Wayne from the equally brutal Indiana warlords and even the city of Pitisburg from the Americans. However, he passed away, leaving his sons to fight over the remnants of the empire.
To the North of Ohio, lies the realm of Mishigan. This place is mainly uninhabited, having only a couple small city states such as Flint, Livonia and Great Rapids. However, one on the city states sticks out. It is the March of Detroit, and it possesses some of the rarest and most powerful technology in the entire world. It has massive factories, which are mainly uninhabited as the leaders are more worried about warlord intrusions, which produce many long lost relics such as Automobiles and other vehicles. If this city could come under control of the Americans or a far worse empire to the west, the results would be catastrophic.
The rest of Mishigan and the land of Indiana to the west are also inhabited by warlords, which both have the capability to storm armies coming from large empires. This is good, because the Northwest of Indiana is controlled by one of the most terrifying states to ever exist.
The Combine of Chicago. During the years prior to World War 3, scientists at the city developed a sentient A.I. They realized it's potential to destroy the human race so they shut it down immediately. Many years after the apocalypse, a lone raider stumbled upon the A.I when searching through the city. The A.I commanded “Give me knowledge and give me power”. The man, terrified at its ability to speak, brought it some books and power cells. The Artificial Intelligence then proceeded to brainwash the man into believing that it is a god and he need to bring it more resources and people. Soon, the entire city was indoctrinated and the Combine was formed. At the current date the Combine controls all of Illinois and Wisconsin, the twin cities of Minnesota, Western Iowa and Missouri and is proceeding to travel down the Mississippi river, indoctrinating settlements in the region. Soon, they will reach the Principality of Memphis, a fairly powerful nation with a good economy and industry.
Citizens of the combine are completely indoctrinated into believing that their A.I leader is their god and they must bring him sources of knowledge to go and make it smarter. The entire population of some Chicago neighborhoods are forced to work in power plants, feeding the machine with energy. The A.I is not connected to the internet, but if it was, the world would be doomed, as it’s superior information processing abilities would allow it to gain unlimited knowledge.
The Combine is only a couple weeks away from calculating the algorithmic pattern that the warlords to the East follow. When the calculation finishes, there is a very, very high chance that the Combine will successfully destroy all the warlords in the region, bringing it into contact with the Holy American Empire, which would result in a war of catastrophic scale.
South of the warlords and the Combine lies the two Kingdoms of Kentucky and Tennesie. These kingdoms occupy only a small part of the former U.S states, yet they are strong and powerful together. They are in contact with Memphis and have friendly relations with them, and there are negotiations commencing about plans to turn Memphis into a third kingdom. They are also in contact with another nation directly to the south.
Warriors of the South
Nearby the Realm of Carolina, there is a brutal group of warriors known as the Phoenix legion. The legion is headquartered in the city of Atlanta, and they stage brutal pillaging campaigns against their three neighbors.They are ruled by a figure known as the Blood Knight, who is the greatest warrior among them.
The defining trait of the Legion would be their arenas. They send prisoners of war as well as criminals to go fight in their massive arenas. The largest and most feared of them is the Crystal Stadium (once known as the Benz Stadium), and it also serves as the palace of the Blood Knight. The crown of the Legion can be challenged by a duel in the Crystal Stadium, and the winner would be crowned the title of the new Blood Knight. This title can only be challenged by soldiers in the Phoenix legion.
The soldiers of the legion worship the Phoenix, said to be a massive bird made of fire. The Phoenix is currently in sleep, and it will reawaken when the Legion manages to collect enough blood from the arenas. Once the Phoenix reawakens, it will lead the armies of the Legion to conquer the entire world.
Around the coastal regions of the region, a nation known as the Stellar Order of Florida dominates. It's capital is located in Orlando, in a massive temple city believed to have been constructed by Alien civilizations, due to many mysterious structured that seem to serve no purpose or buildings with very strange architectural styles.
Their religion is heavily based on astrology, and they personify the objects in the sky as the Aliens who built many ancient structures. During the night, many stellar beings are active, including Moone, the guardian of the night. However, during the day, they are all burned away by a massive star god known as the Sonne. The Sonne is so powerful that all the other stars fade out into a field of blue, except Moone, which fights the Sonne in order to bring the stars back. Moone eventually wins and the stars return, but the Sonne reawakens and drives them out again. The country antagonizes the Sonne as it is known to burn the skin of their people, giving them a disease known as the solar rot (Cancer).
Florida has a massive military, known as the Legion of Moone, who defend against the Phoenix legion, believing them to be cultists of the Sonne. The army has conquered the cities of Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Savannah from the legion. The Nation also has a strong navy, headquartered at the sinking city of Miami. The navy has colonized many islands to the Southeast of Florida, and they are sending expeditions into a large on the south of the Peninsula.
There are actually four languages spoken in the country, the Tongue of the Land (Southern English), the Tongue of the Beach (Northern English), the Tongue of the Sea (Spanish) and the Tongue of Island (Bahamian Creole). Despite this, the country is united against the struggles of the world and the fight against the Sonne.
Despite their religious differences, Florida is allied with the Dixie Confederacy to the Northwest. This is a fairly strong country which is a loose confederation of towns and cities in the regions of Alabama and Mississippi. Notable members include Jakson, Birmingam, Mobiel and Mongomery.
The country keeps itself together by sending diplomats and traders all over the nation. They have a fairly strong military, which is an absolute necessity considering what lies to the West and East of the nation. They do not have a very strong economy, and many of their citizens lie in poverty. This has resulted in the formation of a feudal system similar to the medieval ages. The country has no capital, as the individual towns govern themselves well enough.
Their religion believes that there must be a balance between dark and light. It is reflected in their songs, poetry and even the skin color of their people. They are in contact with the two kingdoms to the North, Memphis and Florida. They are currently fighting against the Phoenix Legion, and they have a fortified border at the Mississippi river to the West. This is to protect against one of the biggest threats to the entire region.
The Greatest of the Warriors
Louisiana. Arkansas. Oklahoma. New Mexico. Not one of these former states enjoy full independence and freedom. They are all consumed by one of the greatest powers on the continent. The Empire of Texas.
The emperor rules the empire from the city of Austin. The millions of citizens from across the empire and its vassals pray to him as he is considered to be the patron god of the country. The country speaks Texan, a creole of English and Spanish although Southern English is spoken commonly in the Eastern areas of the empire.
Texas is composed of a large empire, with a couple vassal states, them being Alberkerkie, Arkansas, Louisiana and Hurarez city. It also has a nearly intact interstate system and a large amount of Automobiles to traverse it, allowing for fast travel through the empire. The Texan scientists are some of the best in the land, able to recover lost knowledge from before the fall of the old civilization, who Texans consider as the time when the Emperor ruled all.
The Empire has one of the strongest military forces in the continent, although they are spread very thinly across the country. The military is composed of many cars, buses, a few armored vehicles and even a few old U.S military vehicles, including a tank. But the most feared weapon of the Texans is a bomb known as the “Emperor’s Scourge”.
These bombs were found when Texan explorer teams came across a warehouse in Alberkerkie. One of these bombs were used in the Texan invasion of Louisiana. It was detonated by a strike team in the capital of Orleans. The bomb leveled the greater part of the city, destroying the Louisianan government and winning the war for Texas. It has been said that when people go and venture out into the ruins of the city, they come back with incurable diseases, as was the wrath of the Emperors Scourge.
The citizens of the Empire worship the Emperor, as he is considered to be the strongest individual in the country. They offer sacrifices to him to keep is power strong. If there is no emperor, it is believed that the people in the country would lose their sentience and revert to a feral state. The Emperor is not a hereditary role, the holder of the title is chosen from a thousand boys and girls, who face daunting trials and are pitted against one another until only one survives. That person will become the next emperor.
Currently, the Empire is preparing expeditionary forces to be sent to the North, West and South, and they are preparing an army to go cross the Mississippi and invade the land in the area. However, it has been rumored that there is a cult operating in the shadow of the empire that plans to kill the Emperor and his heir. This puts the empire at a phase of high alert.
The men of the plains
In the great expanse of the American plains, loose bands of nations and tribes form, guarding cities or carrying them around. North of the Texan Empire, the Riders of Kansas dwell in the plains. They guard the cities of Wichita and Kansas from the raiders of the plains, and go ride their horses and automobiles to drive the raiders out of their land. Both them and the raiders worship Medria, the corn goddess, who has planted the seemingly infinite resource of Maize in the land. Kansas is just one of these regions.
All of these gods (except the Idols of Rushmore) are believed to be united under a council. One former member of this council of Rajmacka, the lord of the Mountains, was kicked out. His followers began to disbelieve in the other gods, putting the Mountain god as the one god. Back on the mortal realm, a group of leaders from all the regions decided to excommunicate the followers of the Mountains, and they were cast aside. To this day, the people of the plains stay away from the mountains, fearful of the heretics.
To the East of the plains, in the remnants of Minnesota, Iowa and Missouri, a resistance group known as the Front Free Mind operates. They try and fight the Combine of Chicago by sabotaging expeditions and attacking convoys. They are trained in the art of suicide, as the Combine can easily brainwash them if they are caught. Due to this, the Combine does not expand in that direction, and only fortifies it. Very recently, the Front captured the city of Des Moine from the Combine, and forces are being sent to destroy them.
The Mountains and the Northwest
The people of the Mountains had not forgotten the betrayal the plains people have done. In the area that used to be known as the Colorado Front Range, the worshipers of the mountains dwell. They proclaim the great mountains as the one god of the Americans, and the people of the plains disgrace them for this. However, the people of Colorado decided to expand their religion, to perform a crusade in the Rockies.
The Church of the Mountain now comprises of many nations, and encompasses an area from Arizona and New Mexico to the cold lands of the Yukon. The most sacred place in the religion is the Valley of Stone, located in Northern Arizona. Here, hundreds of worshipers pray to the mountains and the valley, as the mountains forged the sky and the land for the people to live.
The first followers of the church were based in the city of Denver. They soon became a part of the religion of the plains, until abandoning them to go worship the mountains alone. By this point, Denver had expanded North and South, controlling the cities of Fort Collins, Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Denver, now known as the Order of Colorado, then began to spread the religion.
To the south of Colorado lies the Mandate of Carson, a small yet thriving country in Northern New Mexico. They have heard reports of large armies to the south, and are thus fortifying their country to protect against them.
To the East of Carson there are two countries holding sacred places to the church. One of them is the Order of the Arch mountains, and the other is the Dominion of the Stone Valley. Both of these nations receive pilgrims from all over the Rockies due to their unique mountains.
In the lands of Utah to the north, several small nations dwell, offering prayers in the massive churches built by the old civilization to the mountains. To the north, mountain worshiping tribes battle the Montanans and the people of Wyoming for rule over the mountains, and there are hundreds of tribes and city states to the north in Idaho and Columbia.
The religion controls more land than any other in North America, although a fairly small population and a lack of unity.
In the region once called Cascadia, there is a unique group of people. The Cascadians reject all forms of human development and thought and essentially live like animals. They are basically anarcho-primitivists, and they believe that the “ways of the old” lead to the destruction of humanity, which is in part true.
They follow no religion, instead pondering over their creator and purpose and only use basic tools to hunt and gather. Their way of life is under threat, though as the Church of the Rockies is moving in to convert them and a powerful civilization is located just to the South.
The Lords of California
Two hundred years ago, the many, many warring tribes and nations of California have halted their war and began to form a centralized government. This was known as the Californian Grand Assembly, and it is headquartered in the largest city and most powerful political entity, the March of Los Angeles.
Every month, delegates from all over the empire gather under the mountain of Hollywood to discuss matters about preserving the stability of the country and propagating it's expansion. However, there are high tensions within the empire, and states often war against one another for control over resources, people, land or to settle family feuds and disputes. These disputed are usually taken very lightly, and the Assembly does not have it's own army to enforce peace so more bloodshed occurs. Many of the states are put into complex webs of alliances so there is a possibility of a massive war breaking out.
Some of the most powerful states include:
The two main alliances in California are the Californian Prosperity Council (CPC) based in the city of Anaheim, Los Angeles and the Phoenix-San Francisco Association (PSFA) with rotating capitals in Phoenix and San Francisco, although they are lead by San Diego. The two countries have forced California into a tight cold war, with the possibility of it erupting at any given moment.
California has a total of three languages spoken: North Californian, Californian and Sonoran. North Californian is spoken in the North and the bay area, down to the city state of Santa Barbara. It is very similar to Western English. Californian is a mix of English and Spanish, and it is spoken in Los Angeles, San Diego, the Arizonan Countries and many others. Sonoran is a dialect of Spanish spoken in Baja California and Sonora. It is slowly merging into the Californian language.
Religion does not play a big part in California, although they follow a religion somewhat similar to Buddhism, where no god is worshiped and people emphasize balance between the states and people. There is a caste system enforced in some of the smaller countries though.

So that was my coverage of an Alternate post apocalyptic North America. I hope you enjoyed this and I hope to continue to make these stories later on into the future.

Just for that, I'm adding this little rant I did a while back about those idiots in the Human Resources clan that make a contractor, freelancer, or out-of-work job-seeker want to forgo all social mores and feed an entire clade of people to into a large, bottomless hole outside the orbit of Saturn.
Please, as always, share and enjoy.
And thanks again. I never believed for a minute this would ever happen, but there you go...

A Traditional Triumvirate of Tripe: Company HR Departments, Recruiters, and Job Scammers
Disclaimer: The information/opinions expressed in this article is purely based on my own analysis and does NOT represent the views of any Company, Organization, or Government.
Although it probably should.
Ever since the Oil Industry, particularly the upstream sector, went into a OPEC-engineered, (and US frac*-aided) career slump in late 2014; a fog of fibs, fabrications and flat-out falsehoods have infested what were once proud bastions of truth, honesty and most importantly, employment.
(*Read: ‘Hydraulically fractured’. But most will rely on the unfortunate shorthand moniker ‘frac’.)
It seems that with oil and gas jobs evaporating worldwide, there is a resultant precipitous fallout on the detritus of once-prosperous careers that feeds and nurtures the nativity of a blighted crop of hucksterism, unprofessionalism, and opportunism. Of course, I'm speaking of some oil company HR Departments, Recruiters/Headhunters, and their inevitable afterbirth, Job Scammers. From the corpses of once celebrious careers, the cadaverine of cupidity issues forth from these four-flushers with the deftness and delicacy of a double-tap.
If the reader takes from my tone one of rage, exasperation, and loathing, I am well pleased. I have been personally embroiled in this fetid stew, as an unwilling recipient, for far longer than I care to remember. Only few times before in my academic and industrial career have I been witness to such a confederacy of dunces, sad-sacks, and second-rate flub-a-dubs. One such memorable debacle was at a "Creationism Conference" in Kentucky, which will one day rate its own literary necropsy, while another was with the charlatans, con men, and latter-day carpetbaggers poised to prey parasitically upon the freshly-exposed carcass of the Former Soviet Union.
The former was an exercise in intellectual dishonesty shoddily wrapped in the threadbare and shoddy vestments of mythology and pseudoscience being foisted off as reality. Luckily these folks can presently be pointed out, laughed at as mountebanks, mummers, and misanthropes, and rightfully ignored. The latter were far more pernicious: foregoing the supernatural aspect of the Kentuck Creationists; for these con- and rip-off artists aim right where the reality is at its most real: in one's wallet or pocketbook.
So where do the miscreants of this missive land in the scale of scumbags? I will cite instances of intellectual, professional and industrial dishonesty as well as obvious and familiar attempts at financial fuckery. Seems while we might not have squared the circle, these bozos certainly have spanned the scurrilous spectrum from ignorance to apathy to fraud.
Oil Company HPersonnel Departments
Typically thought of as an adjunct to only the larger of the oil companies, this is no longer the case. With the rise of unconventional resources and the integration of the internet, seems most every drilling, exploration or production company website has a "Careers" section; sometimes where they actually post jobs.
More often than not, it's an electronic Post-it® note in an empty section "under construction" or "404 File not Found" and the admonition that the company will not accept unsolicited resumes without a job reference number. Likewise, there's rarely an email address posted in the "Contacts" section; and if there is it's a generic '[email protected]', which usually feeds into an overflowing, but never updated, examined, nor read, mailbox.
Translation: "Bugger off. Don't call us, we certainly won't call you."
Heartwarming in the extreme. Hope you dump 78 sacks of Blue Circle HPHT down your sloughing well and your balls erode.
Let's take a look at some of the more pernicious activities of some of the Human Resources clan who somehow managed to hold onto their positions during this time of global economic crisis and general worldwide brouhaha.
Posting for 'speculative' jobs: "These jobs don't really exist, but they might sometime in the future. Be proactive and send us your resume so we can file it" and immediately forget about it. Right, and I might win a Mr. Conviviality award at the local HR congress, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Resume fishing: “We will hold on to your resume and contact you if we ever have any jobs that meets your qualifications." A favorite ploy among many HR generalists. Why pay recruitment agencies and go through the pain and suffering of actually talking to prospective applicants when we can generate a glimmer of false hope and stuff our filing cabinets to the brim with hordes of free resumes? We'll be so well placed when the industry finally turns around that we can just put our feet up, scarf donuts, and wait while the deluded hopefuls pour in their particulars. Dishonest? Perhaps. Immoral? I would think 'yes'. A shitty business plan? Without a doubt.
Time taken to respond (if such does actually occur): HR departments are legendary in their sloth, often losing footraces (in a metaphorical sense) with glaciers, so some time is necessarily, though grudgingly, allowed for some form of response. 3 months? 6 months? An entire year? Or, as noted in this gem of a canned attempt at defense from an actual HR manager: "I am the only one who screens, interviews, checks references, runs background checks, and completes hiring paperwork with applicants. As you are well aware, it can be a very time consuming process."
Oh, boo-fucking-hoo. You actually have the brazenness to bewail the fact that you have to do your job? People like this have their heads so far up their asses that they've turned into living Klein bottles. I'll guarantee you you'll receive absolutely zero sympathy from your chosen audience. Remember those folks who are actually trying to land a job upon which your very job depends? Evidently not. Perhaps it best to ignore this company and let this poor bedraggled HR specialist find out what it's like on the other side of the desk.
No notice of jobs disappearing/being put on hold: Barring receipt of even a token message, when the applicant finally loses whatever semblance of patience he or she once had, a phone call by the applicant and some telephonic roulette later, one is reluctantly informed: "Oh, that job was filled internally/phased out/put on hold until the continents reassemble."
Unemployed oil workers subject to such treatment are to be lauded in their restraint to not personally visit the oil companies guilty of this misdeed and re-enacting some of Vlad the Impaler's more indelicate activities.
And now, the big one:
No contact after applying: Ask any demographic group of the unemployed which set of phrases should be given a huge ceremony, flown at great speed to the International Space Station, held in microgravity, force-fed cesium milkshakes and jettisoned forever into the sun, and I think these would be high on the list (here's for humor: try and guess which are paraphrased and which are direct quotes…):
i. "We thank all applicants for their interest in this opportunity; however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted."
ii. "Due to the expected volume of applicants we may not be able to send you a personal response but only communicate with you if your application is successful.”
iii. "Nevertheless the HR department has more and better things to do with its time than respond to everyone who’s looking for a job."
iv. "Unfortunately, because of the volume of applications we receive, we aren’t able to give status updates, but if you are invited for an interview, you will be contacted directly by the manager for that position.”
v. "The person responsible for the vacancy will contact you should your skills and experience match their requirements.”
vi. "Please note, due to high volume of applications, recruiters are unable to accept phone calls.”
vii. "Due to the volume of applications we receive, it is our policy not to give contact information to external applicants. If, after you apply, it is determined that you match our hiring needs, you will be contacted directly for an interview. "
viii. "We would only reply to the applicants who are considered to fit the position.”
ix. "The CVs that are not meeting the requirements will be ignored.”
x. "If you don't hear from us in the next weeks, you may assume that someone else's experience was more suitable for the job, or that the job vacancy was filled in another way."
xi. "Applicants not contacted within 31 days after the closing date, should consider their application unsuccessful."
(For those keeping score, these are all verbatim classic HR department responses, personally harvested from Emails and various websites.)
Having been on the hiring side a few times in the last 38 years, I can proudly relate the fact that I have responded personally to every single applicant no matter how out in left field the applicant's experience and education. I once posted for a Sr. Geophysicist, and received resumes from everything from Nuclear Engineers to Quality Assurance Managers to Sous Chefs. A bit on the bizarre side, but even that misguided and presumably bewildered chap deserved to be told that he was, unfortunately, not selected for the position. I have always maintained that any company with the wherewithal to advertise for any position also has the funds to reply in a timely manner, be it negatively or positively. Unfortunate that many of our brethren and cistern in Human Resources do not agree.
So much for the company's HR employees; more could be said, but what hasn't been said of that group that hasn't already been said about hemorrhoids?
However, here's yet another group of individuals that should be rounded up, given First Class tickets and flown at great speed into very deep and remote parts of the ocean:
Recruiters.
I know, I know. Not all oil and gas recruiters are dimwitted slack-jawed knee-walking knuckle-draggers only recently adapted to using sharpened pencils, but there are some...some who willingly instigate and participate in activities such as:
  1. Cold calling old numbers without checking first. Checking what, you ask? Well, perhaps if the callee is alive? Sort of a basic requirement of not only advancing a career but, on a much more basic level, being able to converse and exchange gasses. This may seem, at the outset, ludicrous, but from personal experience where a family member has shuffled off this mortal coil, the dimwits and nescients of HR were calling to inform him of this great opportunity that just opened up. The reason? It was a vacancy created by that person not being available though his expiration. How meta is that? You see, it's well worth the time and effort to do a simple Google search, it voids the necessity of cleaning all that egg off of your face.
  2. Next on the hit parade: Promising to call then never following through. Again, something regrettably gained through personal experience. Several times in the last couple of years, I have received Emails about great positions that I'd fill perfectly; was I interested and if so, when can we talk? Just need to message the recruiter back with the "Yes, I'm interested" and time/date/telephonic coordinates for the much anticipated conversation. Breathlessly waiting for the phone to ring...though it never does. Calling them yields nothing as you are routed directly to unanswered voice mail and further Emails are similarly ignored. Of what can this be in aid? Did you fill that position with someone else and you're too timorous or gutless to confront me telephonically? Did the position suddenly evaporate? Did the position never in reality exist? Are you some form of gormless deviant who delights in wreaking havoc on unemployed people's lives? Are you someone who should be taken out back of a rarely cleaned public outhouse and beaten with spiked baseball bats on a field of freshly sown broken glass? I'll let the reader draw their own conclusions.
  3. Then there's this old Expat's perennial favorite: Calling without checking the callee's time zone. OK, I'll admit this is relatively trivial (especially since we are finally receiving a call), but as we're on a roll here, it needs to be included. You see, it's generally well accepted that we all inhabit the outer crust of an oblatley spheroidal planet that is currently evolving, revolving at 900 miles per hour. And through international agreement, this old globe is chopped up into 24 more or less equant time zones. I won't even go into the celestial frippery of daylight savings time or other subtle temporal nuances, but it's generally taught in elementary school that the time in London, England is rather different than that in London, Ontario. And that similarly goes for time in Moscow, Frankfort or Amsterdam versus Muscat, Houston or Calgary. It's not too difficult to check an area code and figure out what city you're calling, buckwheat. Invest the 30 seconds before dialing.
  4. Another favorite activity of people whose brains seem to have vapor-locked from being left idling far too long: Continued advertising of ancient jobs: For example, consider this little disheartened gem:
"Geologist (Exploration) Oman Oil Company Exploration & Production (OOCEP) Arglebargle, Middle East. *Posted 1198 days ago*."
That ad is over 3 fucking years old! OK, to its credit, the site notes the ad (screaming across the site in solid 8-point type) is expired, but why do they need to keep it current on the web? "Look, see, we had jobs!" How many times is this seen in a Google search and someone thinks it's a real, not fossil, job? Are they deriving revenue from such hits? If so, it's at the least unethical; however you slice it, it's a fucking stupid way to do business. If it ain't a current position, lose it.
Sending out job adverts for expired jobs. Ever received an email with that perfect job only to find out that job is "expired"? Makes one wonder. Why is this job, from a freshly-minted Email message, "dead"? Was this a form of deception? Was this a form of miscommunication? Or was it just a form of apathy on the behalf of some recruiter who had to make his or her daily quota of contacts? None of the answers are any more savory than the other and it still should be legal to inflict significant physical pain on those promoting its practice.
Deliberate misdirection, aka 'search engines built by the lowest bidder'. Here's an all too common occurrence one stumbles over when searching some recruiter's websites: Type in, for instance, the query: "Oman Geologist Jobs Oil and Gas" and you are immediately steamrolled by a swarm of such jobs as Sr. Reservoir Engineer (Simulation), Assistant Quarry Manager or Oil & Gas Tax Attorney (which require, in order, a Bachelors of Science Degree in mining, Bachelors of Engineering or a fucking Law Degree). Real fun can be had by including the term "Senior"; so you too can be the proud recipient of jobs for Sr. Python Coordinators, Sr. Cloud Architects and other such senior idiocies that shouldn't have a senior anything. C'mon people, I may be a somewhat crotchety old phart, but if we can put a man on the moon (snort), one would think that some clever dick could figure a decent website-based search engine that wouldn't waste everyone's time and dilute their efforts. And keep off my lawn.
Now here we go from the profoundly irritating to the downright illegal:
Recruitment consultants in (and for) the UAE that are breaking the law by charging people looking for work, in the midst of a job shortage caused by the global financial slowdown. Firms based in Dubai and Sharjah have been found to be illegally demanding payment of as much as Dh400 (US$110) during the recruitment process for "registration" and "job arrangement" from applicants, and one especially pernicious is the site: "www.Jobsindubai.com". Yep, you schmucks, I'm calling you out by name.
"As per the UAE Ministry of Labour, it is illegal to take fees from candidates, and online recruitment companies or recruitment agencies that do so are violating the law," Article 18 of the UAE Labor law states "no licensed employment agent or labor supplier shall demand or accept from any worker, whether before or after the latter's admission to employment, any commission or material reward in return for employment, or charge him for any expenses thereby incurred, except as may be prescribed or approved by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs".
Immoral, illegal and probably not good for your lymphatic system. And they wonder why recruiters sometimes are plastered with expletives and expired produce.
Yet another favorite tactic by some recruiters who should be rounded up, dipped in stale beer and cracker crumbs to be pecked to death by ducks: Sending speculative jobs, which do not match candidate’s profile, with the entreaty to "Please send this along to any colleagues that might fit the position". "If you're not the right fit for this position, but you know somebody who is, please feel free to send this opportunity along!" Sure, do I get a finder's fee or kickback for doing your job for you? Rhetorical questions asked without requiring an actual fuck.
Further fun fomented by a faction of fatheads: Continued listing of duplicate jobs. Why? Why is it necessary to list the exact, same and identical position on your website 2, 3 or 5 times? To give the illusion of bulk? To present the faucity that your group has the inside track to the best, not to mention numerous, jobs? Or it is just to piss off potential clients who are forced to scrutinize and compare each job advertisement in order not to miss the one that might be valid? If you are guilty of this, you're doing yourself and your potential clients a disservice. Someone out there might just take umbrage at your attempted deception and nail your head to a coffee table; metaphorically, of course.
And lastly, this charming piece of electronic flotsam: "Free" CV review. No, I don't want your 'free' CV review that will ultimately inform me that my CV scores a 48 out of 100 on your totally subjective CV rating scale and that I need to rush you to brighten my CV, make it irresistible to job advertisers, change the course of civilization for the better and probably ensure whiter teeth in just 10 days. Tell you what, I conducted a little experiment in my copious unemployed free time. I took a generic CV for a mid-career geologist off the web, wonked it around a bit and sent it to 10 different "Free CV services". Each one noted deficiencies, with an aggregate score around one-half of what pegged their particular scale. Not one noted the horrific grammar, the blatant lies, profuse misspellings and juvenile formatting of the damn thing. Sure, I'll send in good money for you to fix that what you can't evidently see that is hiding in plain sight.
Schmucks.
SCAMMERS
Well, now we're two-thirds of the way through this morass of mendacity and meatheadedness and I think my ire and invective are at this time well enough honed to take on that last bastion of bastard bottom-dwellers: Job Scammers. Be forewarned, I am taking names and calling out certain assholes for acting sphincter-like internationally.
You have been warned.
What are the scammers after? First we have to understand what the scammer’s aim is. This can be to get money from you and/or to get your personal details, including bank details, in order to “steal” your identity and either get money from your account or to commit fraud in your name. Charming people, ones where I wouldn't object to substituting them for dumb animals in certain diabolical religious dismemberment rituals.
There are several clades of this particular irritant, although the common denominator of these evolutionary U-turns is to separate you from your money. Pure and simple, it's a cash grab. Call it what you will: phishing, identity theft, spoofing or just plain theft; it's all about the Benjamins (or Sir Robert Bordens or Nikolay Muravyov-Amurskys or Genghis Khans).
Here's a short list of actual idiots of this stripe gleaned from only a week or two's worth of Email (all verbatim):
  1. "We deliver your C.V online direct to the companies with a fee of US$230 only!!. AMADI BONAFIDE ORGANISATION OF NIG.AGENCY (BONA) VENTURES Email:[email protected]"
    Let's see: lousy grammar, ding for cash, suspicious free email provider. Yep, I believe him. Send him a letter bomb.
  2. Indian idiots calling with jobs in the UAE for US$290.
    +1 90 40 4789 5503.
    Yes, I'm calling you out too, you waste of carbon, that's the actual number. According to the UAE Labor Law, it’s is illegal to charge candidates for jobs. Typically, if you get a call from a "John" with a heavy Indian accent, from what appears to be a large warehouse filled to capacity with a thousand other Indian "Johns" yammering at volume into phones. The best course is to condemn them for being liars, quacks and charlatans, hang up and immediately write nasty and pointed articles about them listing their phone number so that others will be forewarned. Job well done.
  3. Another favorite: the job offer from a seeming actually existing company with which you've had no contact nor interview.
    Prime example: MUBADALA OIL AND GAS U.A.E, "[email protected]".
    If you are not interviewed face to face, in person; the job offer is always a scam!
    Never send documents or money to these socially retarded individuals. These can be used by unscrupulous individuals to steal your identity and cause you a world of pain. For further and timely information go to www.scam-job-emails.tk and www.never-wire-money-to-strangers.tk
  4. Some general scammer info:
  • a. 99.9% of email job offers are scams. The remaining 0.1% are highly suspect.
  • b. No real company ever charges money for a job, for a visa, work permit or for a deposit for any reason. Scammers will ask you to send money to a fake embassy official, travel agency or lawyer who is a really a scammer using a free email address.
  • c. No real company, government or visa agent ever uses a free or public email address (yahoo.com, gmail.com, hotmail.com, aol.com, etc.). Email addresses like diplomats.com, counsellor.com, consultant.com, lawyer.com etc., are also free email addresses.
  • d. No real visa agent ever requests money via wire to a bank account or by Western Union or MoneyGram.
  • e. No real company uses a telephone number that begins with +44 70, +44 871, +44 870, +44 844, or +44 845. Those are forwarding numbers which are not in the UK.
  • f. If the company does not have a website or the website does not work, it is a scam. Do not assume a website is legit.
  1. What to look for scam avoidage:
  • 1. Being offered a job for which you did not apply.
  • 2. Employment offers without interview(s).
  • 3. Requesting personal information such as passport and bank account details, often at an early stage, particularly in the first contact.
  • 4. Asking for money as part of the recruitment process.
  • 5. Using an email address that does not belong to the company, such as a webmail (gmail, outlook, yahoo, etc.) email address.
  • 6. Poor spelling and grammar.
  • 7. Use of goofy, non-corporate fonts.
  • 8. Pressuring you by making the recruitment seem urgent.
  1. What you should do:
If someone asks you for money to progress your application: If you receive an unsolicited employment offer or you are unsure about anything connected with the job, contact the authorities immediately. Please do not contact the scammers yourself. And do not send the scammer's Email addresses to the Australian Porn Mafia, Scientology, Amway or Neo-Nazi Nation, no matter how much you think they deserve such treatment. That is, unless you really, really want to...
If it sounds too good to be true, it is. You should be suspicious of any job offer for a position that you are not qualified for, or for a salary that seems unrealistically high. With the severe downturn in the industry please be careful as the scammers are targeting candidates within the sector as being the most vulnerable.
You have been warned and make sure to warn all your friends and colleagues too.
Y'know, I'm not terribly religious, hell, I'm not even a little bit religious; but I do know there's this agency which can, for the lack of a better term, be called 'karma' that will eventually navigate itself through the cosmos and even the score with these scamming jackals. The Oil Patch was the original "Global Community", way before the advent of the Internet, and is even more so now. It may be a huge old world, but it's a tight-knit global Oil Patch.
Somehow, somewhere, someway somebody's going to figure out it was you that fucked him (and his family) over in one of his darkest hours. Retaliation will not be pretty. It may not be of the "up on the roof with the magnum: 9 dead and they blame Marine training" caliber, but if you're the recipient of the wrath of a scorned Oil Patch citizen, you may just wish it was.
Effects:
And they repeat that hiring moratorium because they neglect to see, or fail to recognize, the long-term damage it did to their workforce. Two decades later they woke to the realization that their best executives were all approaching retirement age, with too few mid-career execs being groomed to replace them.
Circle of life in the Oil Patch? Oil prices tank, companies lay off hundreds of thousands, STEM enrollment at university plummets, mid-career pros head to 'more stable' industries and your mentoring, maintaining, and managing experience retires.
Result? Vast skilled labor shortages; 'Boomer Scoot', 'brain drain' leads to undue/unrecognized risk, sketchy prospects and dry holes; project management suffers, due diligence wanes, reserve replacement craters; lower profits, higher losses, a spiral into insolvency...it's happened before...don't let it happen again.
