While You Were Gone by Ara Hannan

FANDOM: Big Hero 6

CAST: Gen/Ensemble

RATING: T

SUMMARY: How do you fit someone back into your life when you thought they were gone forever? All Tadashi knows is that he went into a burning building to help someone and that he got hurt - so how are they supposed to tell him everything else? Set after the events of the BH6 movie.

NOTES: Surprise, this blog is not dead!! I was in a gen mood, so I went and re-read one of my favourite fics from this fandom. It starts with the premise that Tadashi was unknowingly in a coma during the movie and follows his long recovery. The author has a medical background, so the details are excruciatingly accurate. It has a lovely writing style, the characterization is amazing, the reactions are heartbreaking and AHHHHHH I’m just so glad this fic exists, I love it so ♥♥♥

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild will be Nintendo's last first-party game for Wii U

Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild will be Nintendo’s last first-party title for Wii U, the company has confirmed. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed the news in an interview with Polygon after the Switch launch event in New York City last week (13 January).

“From a first-party standpoint, there’s no new development coming after the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” Fils-Aime said. “We really are at the end of life for Wii U.”

Fils-Aime noted that current Wii U titles will still be sold at retail and on the Nintendo eShop, and that online services will continue.

“From our standpoint, sunsetting is quite some time into the future,” he said. “The ongoing activity from an online standpoint on [Mario] Kart and Splatoon is significant. We’re going to continue to support that.”

Step aside, Apple: Tag Heuer proves demand for a £1,000 smartwatch really does exists

As of 30 September 2016, Wii U had sold just 13.36 million units since its release in 2012, whereas its predecessor, the Nintendo Wii, had sales totalling 101.63 million units since its 2006 launch. In November, Nintendo confirmed that production of the Wii U was to end shortly as its focus turned to Switch.

The Nintendo executive’s comments come a week after the Kyoto-based gaming company unveiled the Switch, which will launch on 3 March with Breath Of The Wild as a launch title.

Vodafone UK Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users may get Android 7.0 Nougat update from 23 January

Initially announced for the Wii U in 2013, The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild was described as a title that would “re-think the conventions of Zelda”. After suffering multiple delays, Nintendo announced in April last year that it decided to push back its release until 2017 to “polish the game”.

The upcoming RPG is a significant departure from previous games in the popular Zelda series with new survival features, enhanced combat mechanics and more.

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is set to release on 3 March for Nintendo Switch and Wii U.

Are Large-Cap Growth Stocks Set To Surge?

A potentially very bullish chart pattern has formed in the large-cap growth segment of the market.


Strategists seem to be split in terms of the stock market’s posture at this time. One contingent views the recent consolidation as a healthy digestion of the post-election rally prior to the next leg of advance. The other side views it as a tired market rolling over following a Trump rally that was misplaced and overdone. Which (if any?) of the 2 scenarios is correct? We may find out shortly. In any event, it is interesting to note how folks using the exact same inputs can come to completely opposite conclusions.

So it is with financial charts. Most technical analysts and chartists can reasonably contrive both a bullish and bearish assessment of almost any chart they peruse. It truly is in the eye of the beholder. A good example comes in today’s Chart Of The Day on an index of large-cap growth stocks.



The S&P 500 Large-Cap Pure Growth Index (SPXPG) includes just those stocks in the S&P 500 that demonstrate true growth characteristics. The index itself has been stuck in a sideways range for over 2 years now. Well, at least its upper bound has not been expanded in 2 years. The SPXPG first topped out near 8600 in March 2015. It bounced off that level, more or less, over the next 5 months before suffering serious damage in the August 2015-February 2016 selloff.

As the market recovered last year, the index found its way back to the 8600 area. From July to September, the SPXPG was rejected multiple times by that level. And again over the past month, the index has repeatedly tested the area but has been unable to break through.

The skeptic would argue that the index’s inability to break out to new highs after years of testing demonstrates an underlying weakness. This is an especially compelling argument considering that most U.S. indices have managed to register new highs over the past 6 months.

However, as we mentioned, beauty is in the eye of the chart beholder. And there is an equally compelling bullish argument. Most folks have probably heard of a head-&-shoulders pattern. This is a pattern containing a top (head), flanked by two lower, proximate highs (shoulders). Historically, this has been a reliably bearish formation. Once prices break below the lows (i.e., neckline) established during the time frame of the pattern, the downside becomes most vulnerable, and potentially extensive.

Some folks may not realize that there is a bullish inverse to this pattern. It is called, not surprisingly, an inverse head-&-shoulders pattern. As you may infer, it consists of a major low (head) flanked by 2 higher, proximate lows, e.g., the shoulders. The neckline is represented by the tops established within the period of the pattern. Once that neckline is cleared, prices have the potential to shoot significantly higher.

As labeled on the chart, the spike lower in the SPXPG during the January-February 2016 rout represents a potential head of an inverted head-&-shoulders pattern. The selloffs in August-September 2015 and June 2016 represent the potential shoulders. And the roof near 8600 is the hypothetical neckline. Should this read on the chart be accurate, a successful breakout above the 8600 neckline could open up substantial upside for the index. A variety of measurements would suggest a resultant gain of between 12% and 25% following a breakout.

Of course, should that interpretation be erroneous, the index could perhaps continue to get rejected by the 8600 level until it eventually breaks down. Or, the SPXPG could very well break out only to subsequently fall back below the neckline, causing a false breakout. These scenarios would inherently be bearish.

Which will it be? Once again, we do not have a crystal ball. Therefore, we will continue to watch the next best thing: prices. Presently, prices are being squeezed by the neckline on the upside and the post-February 2016 Up trendline (connecting the pre-election low) on the down side. At this point, this (potentially bullish) ascending triangle may be as good of a direction determinant as anything.

Thus, waiting for one of the two lines to be broken seems to be the prudent strategy. And while the break may always prove to be a “false” one, we do not like to anticipate a breakout or breakdown. It is especially true in this case as, whichever way the break occurs, there should be ample room for the SPXPG to run and, thus, ample opportunity to profit.

Day 6: savior/foe – a scripted development

“This is ridiculous, Tobio.”

Tooru looks annoyed but also mildly confused and curious, like that one time he found Tobio sleeping in his bed instead of his own, when they were still teenagers. Tobio knows he isn’t in big trouble, then, he’s just going to be lectured for the whole night and tomorrow everything will go as usual.

“You’ve never spared anyone before, what made you think this was a safe move?”

“That guy has never killed, what level of pathetic is that?” Tobio mutters.

“He could have been, you know, acting, so that you let your guard down? Think a bit, Tobio!”

Can I just brag for a second?

My 11 year old daughter came home from school and told me she won the podcast contest. This was the first I had heard about it, so I asked what was her topic. Each child was asked to talk on an important event that happened in 2016. My daughter chose the death of Carrie Fisher. She talked about her talent and her activism on behalf of mental health. The world is going to hell in a hand basket but my daughter mourned the loss of a rebel princess who fought for those who suffer with mental health issues.

For those who look at current events and despair, please note. The future has been born and these kids are beautiful. I am reminded that we women really have the power to reshape our world one child at a time.

Xiaomi launches new Redmi Note 4 at Rs 9,999 in new matt black colour

Xiaomi conducted the launch event of Redmi Note 4 in New Delhi today where it launched the new Redmi Note 4.

The device was launched in China last year and is finally making a debut in India. According to Xiaomi President, Hugo Barra, the matt black variant will be available soon after the launch event.

The new design follows the Xiaomi’s glass and aluminum aesthetics that is very similar to the previously launched Mi 5 and Mi Max. The Redmi Note 4 will be powered by the Snapdragon 625 and Adreno 506 GPU, which will use a new power efficient 14nm FinFET technology. The new technology will also enhance the thermal performance drastically.

The phone will feature a 4100 mAH battery which is just one per cent bigger than the Redmi Note 3 but will apparently cross Remi Note 3 battery by 25 per cent.

On the camera front, the device will come with 13 megapixel rear camera with CMOS sensor and a 5 megapixel front facing camera. The presentation saw a special emphasis and comparison of Redmi Note 4’s primary camera with Redmi Note 3’s camera.

The new device will be offered at a price of Rs 9,999 for a new 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM. The 4GB and 64 GB variant will be offered at Rs 12,999 and the 3GB RAM, 32 GB ROM will be available at Rs 10,999.

anonymous asked:

What does being "transferred" to the humans entail? Like stigmas surrounding it/the cats who are transferred from the clans?

All that really means is that a patrol will escort the chosen cat to the houses and wait around until a human notices and tries coaxing the cat over. If it takes more than a day, they might leave the cat there and bring them prey. The important thing is to keep them there so they can get noticed and hopefully taken care of. 

Transferring over to the houses is an incredibly rare event, I need to note here. It’s very unlikely that an entire Clan will agree that they don’t have the necessary resources to help their Clanmate survive out in the wild. If a cat qualifies to become a kittypet, there needs to be something severely wrong with them that could get them killed if they live in the territories. If you hear someone say that a cat’s being taken to the houses, the immediate question is what kind of horrific syndrome or deformity do they have that forces them away from their home and into enemy territory. 

unofficial charm guide to a 5 suitor event

HUGE DISCLAIMER: i’m basing this off of the last 5 suitor event which was Queen’s Reign. Note however that Queen’s Reign only had 10 endings. The Wedding Event tomorrow has 15 endings!

So why am I even posting this? Answer: So we all can guesstimate just how much charm we might encounter for this Wedding Event.

Another Note: Wedding Event has already been done but as a two part story event in 2015 (cant remember the exact date), but back then aside from charm reqs, we had to buy items from the boutique using bells (here’s to hoping charm reqs will be lower) that’s why some players already have the limited edition and/or chibi items. Let’s see how Cybird will handle the pricing on this.

Okay, so here are the charm reqs following the order of: Premium, Premium, Premium, Premium, Premium, Sweet, Sweet, Sweet, Sweet, Sweet

Nitish Kumar government's human chain event comes under Patna HC scanner

The much hyped formation of world’s longest human chain event of the Nitish Kumar government on January 21 in support of prohibition, has come under the scanner of the Patna High Court.

The court on Wednesday asked the state government to explain to it why school going children have been asked to stand and form human chain on January 21. The court also questioned the state government under which law was it blocking the national as well as the state highways on the same day for almost five hours for the human chain event.

It may be noted that Patna High Court raised these questions after public interest litigation was filed against the human chain event by a lawyer, Shahi Bhushan.

Nitish Kumar government intends to create a world record by forming the longest human chain. Government machinery is working round the clock at the moment to ensure participation of almost 2 crore people for the event. State government has already issued directions for closure of traffic on national and state highways between 9 am to 3 pm for the human chain event on January 21.

The court of Chief Justice Hemant Gupta and Justice Dinesh Kumar will be hearing this matter on Thursday.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

Note: I wrote this on the 14th.

I have watched the first four episodes of A Series of Unfortunate Events, and I must say, it is amazing! I feel like my childhood is finally being completed, because those books were my first series, and I absolutely love then! I haven’t read them thousands of times, but I do not feel as though I have forgotten a thing.

So, about the Netflix series. First: they do a remarkable job following the books, and each book is (essentially) given its own movie, as well each book deserves *cough, cough unlike the movie cough*. Second: though many things are added, those things all relate back to VFD and things not yet explained within the first four books. Third: the portrayal of Lemony Snicket (by Patrick Warburton) is phenomenal. Fourth: Neil Patrick Harris makes a great Count Olaf, and allows the character to be funny without trying too hard.

If you don’t believe me, that’s okay, because it a disastrous tale that you would not wish to watch anyways.

Russia claims facing increased cyberattacks from foreign hackers amid US election hacking uproar

Russia is reportedly facing escalated cyberattacks from foreign hackers, according to the country’s Security Council head Nikolay Patrushev.

Responding to allegations from US authorities that Kremlin was involved in targeted cyberattacks, Patrushev reportedly hit back at US officials for accusing Russia “without giving any proof” and of using its own advantages in cyberspace to enhance its surveillance and intelligence.

“Recently we have noted a significant increase in attempts to inflict harm on Russia’s informational systems from external forces,” Patrushev told the Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily, Reuters reported. He claimed that the cyberthreats involve “hacking attacks and unsanctioned collection of personal data”, adding that the capabilities and methodologies used by cybercriminals are “constantly evolving”.

Patrushev also slammed US authorities over allegations of Russian hacking. “Obama’s administration accuses Russia of hacking attacks without giving any proof, but deliberately ignores the fact that all major internet servers are located on US territory and are used by Washington for intelligence and other purposes aimed at retaining [US] dominance in the world,” he said, Russian state media RT reported.

Patrushev claimed that Russian president Vladimir Putin’s official website “is subjected to hacking attacks hundreds and sometimes even thousands of times a day.” He claimed that “some hackers attack this site from US territory” while others launch attacks “from China, India or European countries.”

Patrushev added, “However, it does not lead to a situation when we say that we know [US President Barack] Obama ordered [this attack] and the White House is behind it.

West discrediting Russia

The Russian security chief fired back at Western and US politicians, claiming that "Joint efforts of the West are particularly aimed at disruption of the integration processes involving Russia and discrediting of the idea of the ‘Russian space,’ thus threatening the security of Russia and a number of other states.”

He also accused the US Democratic Party of taking its own “failures and mistakes out on Russia”.

Constructive relations with Trump administration

Despite escalating tensions between the US and Russia, Patrushev said that he hopes that the Kremlin would be able to develop “constructive relations” with the incoming administration.

“I believe that some opportunities for constructive cooperation with the US will emerge in the fields of fighting terrorism, information security and some other areas,” he said.

Meanwhile, according to a report by Politico, the US senate intelligence committee led by chairman Richard Burr is slated to investigate possible links between President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.
