The wisdom of it is no better than the trickery of some old witch. If you take your eyes off Christ, it must be witchcraft that makes you do it. There is such glory, such beauty, such perfection, such wisdom, such divinity in Christ crucified that, if you turn from that sight to anything else—no matter how scientific and learned it may be ...

2021.12.06 21:03 CT_Phipps Dames for Hire: HoloCity Case Files #1 (Bubbles in Space) by S.C. Jensen 4/5 - Cyberpunk detective fun
DAMES FOR HIRE: HOLOCITY CASE FILES #1 is a prequel spin-off of the BUBBLES IN SPACE series by S.C. Jensen. Bubbles in Space is a Neo-Noir thriller series set in HoloCity, a cyberpunk dystopia. Without spoiling, her private eye career takes something of a sideline to larger events so this seems to be based on the kind of cases she took before the first book. In other words, the main series is cyberpunk adventure while this is more detective series. I'm entirely cool with that.
In this book, a customer comes to Bubbles looking to have someone rubbed out in order to protect his daughter from being taken advantage of. Bubbles isn't into contract murder but agrees to investigate the potental target for the good of the customer's stepdaughter. What follows is a story of sex, gambling, inheritance, and Bubbles trying to do a job she is uniquely unqualified for. The ending is also a classic "locked room" with the killers that I loved the update to.
The appeal of this book is that it manages to do what the main series was unable to do and keep a focus on the detective fiction element of Bubbles' story. Bubbles is a somewhat questionably skilled investigator as she's frequently distracted by her own troubles as well as lacking in the hyper-observation that other fictional detectives possess. This is an interesting twist as Bubbles upfront and somewhat bumbling nature frequently leads her enemies to overestimate her throughout the book. This results in them leading a trail right back to their doorsteps.
Bubbles is an exceptionally likable character with a sarcastic and everywoman quality to her. She doesn't want to be involved with a client whose first response to a situation is to have his daughter's girlfriend rubbed out. However, Bubbles is running low on funds and her client is her best friend's boss. She thinks she can navigate things and keep the bloodshed to a minimum but Bubbles is never quite as on top of things like she wants to be. This makes the story dynamic and fairly unpredictable.
HoloCity is a delightfully sleazy place without ever going over PG-13 in terms of sex or violence. S.C. Jensen does a great job of using 1930s lingo in the future to give it an "off" feel while also filling its wealthy classes with every manner or perversion but letting the reader figure out just what it means. It was a bit like trying to adapt The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep during the era of the Hayes Code as both films are based on books that are gritty as hell. The cyberpunk element adds a fun veneer of futurism to very familiar tropes of crime bosses, greed, addiction, and questionably trustworthy lovers.
I'm a great believer that detective fiction and cyberpunk go together like peanut butter and jelly so this is a combination that was straight up my alley. Unfortunately, I will say the book is a bit on the short side with only a little over 144 pages. The price is reasonable with $2.99 for a direct purchase and also availability on Kindle Unlimited. Still, I think the story could have been expanded to two hundred pages easily enough. I understand this is going to be a series around Bubbles' cases so its compact self-contained size makes sense.
So, definitely recommended.

2021.12.06 21:03 autotldr Mourners put wreaths on coffins of Indians mistakenly killed by security forces
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 58%. (I'm a bot)
GUWAHATI, India, Dec 6 - Indians outraged by the security forces' mistaken killing of 14 civilians in Nagaland state held funeral rites for the dead on Monday amid intense security and sporadic internet outages aimed at damping unrest in the remote northeastern region.
Security and government officials have said 13 members of the region's predominant Konyak tribe and one security trooper were killed on Saturday after the forces in the border state mistook a group of labourers for militants and opened fire.
He said the government "Expresses remorse" as civilians lives were lost when security forces were trying to ambush insurgents.
Shah said an investigation had been ordered to identify loopholes in the security strategy at a time when hundreds of members of the security forces are patrolling Mon district.
Police registered a complaint against a unit of the Special Forces in the Indian Army over the incident, saying there had been no police guide nor a request for one from security forces.
SWEEPING POWERS.Feelings are running high in Nagaland, where people have often accused the security forces of wrongly attacking villagers in counterinsurgency operations against rebel groups under a law known as the Armed Forces Special Powers Act.Besides sweeping powers of search and arrest, the law, enforced in parts of four of the seven northeastern states, allows security forces to open fire to maintain public order in areas designated "Disturbed areas".

See title. Looking for something that's compatible with Stainless Steel. Used to run SSHIP but the latest updates to it have kinda driven me away, so...yeah. if y'all know a good graphics mod to make M2 as neat looking as possible let me know. Nothing in the newer TWs for obvious reasons ever looks as right as M2 for close quarters combat.

2021.12.06 21:03 Striking-Hall8507 Sobre ser modelo/ator no Brasil
Sei que o título pode parecer arrogante ou engraçado, mas não tenho intenção de fazer graça ou me vangloriar neste tópico. Sei que muitos responderão ironicamente: "prostitua-se", mas agradeço aos que lerem e interpretarem corretamente o que estou dizendo.
Parece até piada alguém dizer isso, no meio de tantos do reddit que estão falando sobre a áreas profissionals totalmente diferentes, mas digitarei aqui sinceras palavras.
Não sou modelo e nem ator. Muitos pensam que sou modelo, dizem que tenho uma boa aparência e elogiam meus outfits inspirados nas tendências da moda europeia. Considero isso tudo uma qualidade, a qual gostaria de explorar, e de certa forma ter algum proveito financeiro disso. Realmente gostaria de ser modelo, mas acho complicado tudo isso... Muitos vão ler e achar isso uma grande besteira. Mas por que? Qual o problema em querer ser modelo? É uma sincera vontade que eu sempre tive. Sou apaixonado por moda, arte, música, etc... Mas, acho muito complicado... Não tenho tanta grana pra me bancar, só uma boa aparência visual, um bom conhecimento em moda, e muita vontade de trabalhar com algo relacionado à esse tipo de arte.
De que maneira eu poderia explorar essas minhas qualidades profissionalmente? Em quais áreas profissionais eu poderia me encaixar?
Agradeço quem puder responder sem ironias. Meu objetivo aqui é apenas ter conversas saudáveis.
