A Guide to MCCC (Story Progression Mod) & Example Settings

A Guide to MCCC (Story Progression Mod) & Example Settings
Hello, fellow Simmers!
EDIT: I have since updated this post with more categories and settings! Anything new is marked with "*NEW*". Enjoy!

BACKGROUND
I had the idea of doing a detailed breakdown of what the mod MCCC is by Deaderpool, as well as providing my personal in-game settings detailing exactly what each of them does. This stemmed from me originally being completely overwhelmed by the mod when I first got it. All I really wanted was a list of settings to attain story progression in my game that also detailed exactly what each setting did. Now that I've tweaked and adjusted the mod in my game for about six months, I feel confident providing others who were like me a more detailed guide of the mod.
If you are more of a visual learner, there are some videos out there that can help as well! I'm more of a reader myself. A quick search for 'mccc sims 4 guide' brings up a few different video options that might be a better fit for you.
If you are concerned about performance for larger groups of Sims, I've included my computer build at the bottom of this post for reference. Those playing on laptops, I recommend keeping groups of Sims to the game's default.
Onto the MCCC Guide!

THE MOD
MCCC, or MC Command Center, is a mod most people use to create automated story-progression with NPCs or previously played households. It also has the ability to "clean" or remove items such as that pesky eyeball ring from NPCs' outfits. In my example settings, you will find I also use the mod to adjust things like Friendship Decay (the amount of time it takes for a friendly relationship to deplete) and employment percentages for each age group. Overall, it's an incredible mod, and if it's your first time dipping your toes into all it covers, fret not! As you get more comfortable with it, you'll be able to fine-tune your Sims experience to be exactly what you'd always hoped it would be (or pretty dang close).
This mod has A LOT of options. Seriously, tons. You can modify just about every aspect of the game to your liking. As such, this post is really long. If you're primarily interested in story-progression and NPC automation (pregnancies, relationships, marriage, etc.), I recommend skipping to MC Population and working from there.

GETTING STARTED
If you do not have the mod yet, make sure you head over to MCCC's designated website and download it. If you're new to the modding world (your life is about to change forever), this guide is a great place to learn exactly how to download mods.
IMPORTANT: In the Mods folder, do not put .ts4script files deeper than 1 folder. For instance, Mods > MCCC 7.1.0 > mc_career.ts4script is OK. However, Mods > MCCC 7.1.0 > Career Settings > mc_career.ts4scripts is NOT OK. Script files will not work correctly if they are layered beneath too many folders.

Finding MCCC on an In-Game Computer
Once you've successfully downloaded the mod, start up the game, select a household, buy a computer, click on the computer, then click on the "MC Command Center" bubble. This will open up a new window with a bunch of categories.

MCCC Main Menu
SETTINGS
Note: These are the settings I have in my game. ALL of these settings are 100% personal preference! Please explore these categories on your own as well, and have fun!
I will go through each overarching category I have modified, and give a brief explanation of what each one covers. If I do not get into detail about one you want to know more about, leave a comment and I'll see what answers I can provide!
Note: If you do not see one of the settings subcategories listed, I've left them as their default setting.


MCCC Settings
MCCC Settings > Relationship Settings: This category focuses on exactly what it says. Here, you can customize various aspects of Sim relationships to your liking.
"Friendship Decay Percentage:" 75
"Breakup Settings > Couple Relationship Change Percent:" 20
"Breakup Settings > Spouse Relationship Change Percent:" 10
"Breakup Settings > Breakup Move-out Sim:" Random Sim
*NEW* MCCC Settings > Notification/Console/Menu Settings: This category focuses on various cheats that people commonly use when playing The Sims 4. If you enjoy using cheats, I highly recommend checking out TwistedMexi’s All Cheats Mod. In this category, you can determine whether or not certain cheats are always enabled.
“Console Command Settings > Enabled Full Edit CAS:” Enabled
Reasoning: I like having the ability to fully edit townies with no restrictions and while still playing in my own household. You can pull up this option by shift+clicking on an NPC Sim.
“Console Command Settings > Testing Cheats:“ Enabled
“Console Command Settings > Debug Commands In Cheats:“ Enabled
Reasoning: This allows you to shift+click on any object and delete it from the game completely. I love this feature because I can get rid of anything in the world that gets in the way or causes problems for my Sims.
“Console Command Settings > Build Buy Settings > Move Objects Enabled, Free Build Enabled, & Ignore Unlocks Enabled:“ Enabled
MCCC Settings > Money Settings: This one is also a pretty obvious one, but it essentially allows you to turn on things like Child Support, auto-pay for bills, adjust the cost of bills, and more. I do not recommend turning on auto-pay bills if you have Discover University as your student Sim will be charge for bills they shouldn't be.
"Pay Child Support:" All
"Inheritance Sim Type:" All
MCCC Settings > Gameplay Settings: This section covers a lot of different things. I leave most of these as default, but their titles and descriptions are pretty informative if you're looking to try out other things! I caution adjusting Maximum Household Size as it can cause problems in CAS and hurt performance depending on your computer build/laptop.
"Adopt Neglected Child:" Enabled
"Use Random Aging:" Disabled
MCCC Settings > Set Age Span Duration: Want your pets to outlive your Sims? Want babies to stay as babies longer? (I question your sanity, if so.) This is the place to make it happen!
"Human > Child:" 11
"Human > Teen:" 9
"Human > Young Adult:" 35
Reasoning: When sending my Sims to university, I felt like it took up a whole life stage. Young adulthood in the real world lasts until about age 35, so I wanted my game to better reflect that taking how long university takes into consideration.
"Human > Adult:" 25
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC CAS
MC CAS > Offspring: Want your baby Sims to better resemble their parents? Want them to look nothing like them at all? Want them to inherit their body type, and not just facial features? Here's your chance!
"Use Parent Physical Attributes:" Enabled
"Percent Values Variance Percent:" 25
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Career
MC Career: This section is neat because it allows teen and child Sims to drop out of school, as well as adjust how difficult it is to get a promotion. If you have Discover University and feel like it's just not quite hard enough, you can adjust that here as well.
"Teen Employment Range:" 40, 60
"Adult Employment Range:" 85, 95
"Teens Quit School:" Enabled
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Cleaner
MC Cleaner: Are you sick and tired of seeing that stupid eyeball ring that the NPCs just can't get enough of? Are you tired of NPCs wearing every single item type regardless of the occasion? Look no further! Here's your solution.
"Item Cleaner > Remove Items:" Enabled
"Clean Item Parts > Hat:" Select All
Reasoning: If you still want NPCs to wear hats, do not do this option. If you only want them to wear hats for certain occasions, deselect those outfit types. My game was plagued by fedoras, so I did the only logical thing: banish all hats.
"Clean Item Parts > Shoes:" Swimwear
"Clean Item Parts > Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, & Blush:" Sleep, Swimwear, Bathing
Reasoning: I personally really hate when Sims wear makeup to bed or when swimming. The above options remove are for removing makeup from certain outfit types.
"Clean Item Parts > Accessories > Gloves, Left Bracelet, Right Bracelet, Left Index Ring, Right Index Ring, Left Third Ring, Right Third Ring, Left Middle Ring, Right Middle Ring, Leggings:" Select All (I allow gloves for Cold Weather, though.)
Reasoning: I honestly was so tired of the use of accessories, similar to the hats I just decided to ban them all. If you would like to take the time to only remove certain types, please feel free to do so. The eyeball ring HAUNTS me.
"Clean Item Sims:" NPC Sims
Reasoning: Any "Played Sims" in my save have had their outfits custom-tailored by mua. It felt counter-intuitive to have them "cleaned" by the mod when they were already personally customized and styled.
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Clubs
MC Clubs: If you have Get Together, you will see this option in the Main Menu. This allows you to automate NPCs joining various clubs, as well as adjust other things such as the maximum amount of members. (Because who wants to be stuck with the same 7 people all the time? Why not 10? Or 20?)
"Monitor Club Members:" Enabled
"Club Member Count:" 25
Reasoning: I recommend not going higher than this. In fact, you may just want to stick with 20. If you clutter a lot with too many Sims, or a group for that matter, you'll see performance drops, as well as errors due to posturing issues (Sims not having enough space to complete an action/animation).
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Population
MC Population: The next several sections are primarily about story-progression and NPC automation. There are SO many settings here that are highly based on your personal preference. I am one of those people who plays with a finger over the "P" key at all times (been this way since The Sims 2). I micro-manage the heck out of my Sims. If hands-free is more your style, you may find yourself wanting to tweak with more of these settings than I do.
"Moving Settings > Homeless Apartment Percent:" 50
"Moving Settings > Move Out Elders:" Move Non-Ancestral Elders
"Allow Stray Move-In:" Enabled
"Moving Settings > Open Houses:" 3
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Dresser
*NEW* MC Dresser: This category focuses primarily on the clothes Sims are to wear during certain situations or events.
“Ages To Run On Age-Up:“ Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Elder
“Makeup Settings > Run Makeup Check:“ Enabled
“Makeup Settings > Makeup Ages:“ Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Elder
Reasoning: You should be allowed to rock drag at any age. Or everyday makeup, for that matter.
“Makeup Settings > Makeup Outfits:“ Everyday, Formal, Party, Career, Situation, Special, Hot Weather, Cold Weather
“Male & Female After Career Outfit:“ Everyday
“Replace Situation Outfits > Romantic Festival Situations, Humor Festival Situations, Spice Festival Situations, City Walkby Situations:“ Everyday
Reasoning: Too many pantsless Sims.
--MCCC Main Menu--

MC Occult
*NEW* MC Occult: This category is all about the aliens, vampires, mermaids, and more! Here, you can customize various nuances of each Sim type.
“Aliens > Abduction Settings > Allow NPC Abductions:“ Enabled
Reasoning: My Sim isn’t that special. Let the others be harrassed by the Aliens for once too please.
“Aliens > Abduction Pregnancy Settings > Abduction Pregnancy Percent > Elder Pregnancy Percent:“ 10
Reasoning: They’ve already seen so much in life. They really shouldn’t be subjected to being a… subject.
“Aliens > Abduction Pregnancy Settings > Abduction Pregnancy Genders:“ Female, Male
Reasonings: Why should males be the only ones to have all the fun?
“Aliens > Abduction Pregnancy Settings > Pollinator Gender:“ Female, Male
Reasoning: See above. Also, “Pollinator Gender” had me cackling for a good minute.
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Pregnancy
MC Pregnancy: Alright, get ready for lots of sections. This part gets not only into pregnancy, but NPC marriage as well. You can also specify same-sex marriage percentages, adjust adoption percentages, etc.
"Pregnant Sim Selection > Valid Pregnancy Ages:" Young Adult, Adult
"Pregnant Sim Selection >Days to Run Checks:" Monday
Reasoning: When I did more than one day, my game was practically overrun with NPCs' children. It made for a very lively world, but it was also a bit overwhelming seeing Nancy Landgraab pop out three more babies out of nowhere. More on preventing this to come.
"Pregnant Sim Selection > Play Households:" Disabled
Reasoning: I didn't want only NPCs to get pregananant. I also wanted my previously played households to still have babies, too. If you do not want this, leave the setting on Enabled.
"Pregnant Sim Selection > Pregnancy Percentage > Young Adult Pregnancy Percent:" 10
"Pregnant Sim Selection > Pregnancy Percentage > Adult Pregnancy Percent:" 20
Reasoning: Another attempt to prevent my game from being overrun by NPC children.
"Partner Sim Selection > Valid Partner Ages:" Young Adult, Adult
"Partner Sim Selection > Allow Affairs Percentage:" 5
Reasoning: Because there's no way someone like Thorne Bailey is 100% loyal.
"Partner Sim Selection > Occupancy Preference:" Prefer Home Sims
"Offspring > Maximum Offspring:" 2
Reasoning: Too. Many. NPC. Babies.
"Offspring > Maximum Household Children:" 2
"Offspring > Identical Offspring Chance:" 90
Reasoning: I think identical twins are cool, ok?
"Offspring > Sync Child Surname:" Enabled
"Other Pregnancy > Auto-Marry Percentage:" 66
Reasoning: I had lots of single moms showing up in my game, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I just wanted a world with less absent fathers. I use Sims as an escape from the harshness of reality, alright?! (She says while playing with Life Tragedies.)
"Adoption Settings > Opposite Sex Adoption Percent:" 25
"Adoption Settings > Sam Sex Adoption Percent:" 65
"Adoption Settings > Adoption Ages:" Baby, Toddler
Reasoning: Story-telling reasons in my personal game.
"Marriage Sim Selection > Valid Marriage Ages:" Young Adult, Adult
"Marriage Sim Selection > Days to Run Checks:" Saturday
"Marriage Sim Selection > Bypass Played Households:" Disabled
"Marriage Sim Selection > Marriage Percent > Young Adult Marriage Percent:" 20
"Marriage Sim Selection > Marriage Percent > Adult Marriage Percent:" 45
"Spouse Sim Selection > Valid Spouse Ages:" Young Adult, Adult
"Spouse Sim Selection > Same-Sex Percentage:" 10
Reasoning: I wanted to base this statistic off real-life figures, but could not find them anywhere! If anyone happens to know this, please let me know.
"Spouse Sim Selection > Use Same Age-Group:" Enabled
"Spouse Sim Selection > Occupancy Preference:" Prefer Home Sims
"Other Marriage > Rename Same Gender:" Enabled
"Other Marriage > Rename Opposite Sex:" Use Male Names
YOU DID IT! Only one more category!
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Tuner
MC Tuner: Seriously need a break after that last one. This one will be a cake walk in comparison. It's a pretty self-explanatory section, but it primarily focuses on specific interactions between your Sims that can happen autonomously. I Enabled/Disabled a few different settings based on my Sims autonomously being brats to other Sims more than I'd prefer.
"Change Interaction Behavior > Friendly Ask If Single:" Enabled
"Change Interaction Behavior > Stop Random Flirting:" Enabled
Reasoning: Tired of Sims being unfaithful because one decided to drink Cupid's Potion.
"Change Interaction Behavior > Allow Multiple BFFs:" Enabled
Reasoning: Because everyone is capable of being the best kind of friend.
"Change Interaction Autonomy > Autonomous Mischief:" Disabled
"Change Interaction Autonomy > Autonomous Mean:" Disabled
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC WooHoo
*NEW* MC WooHoo: This is all about celebrating and having a party! In bed! WooHoo! Hooray! (That’s what 8 year old me thought, anyway.) MC WooHoo is a separate download, so you will not see this in your MCCC Main Menu if you do not have it installed. Here, you can customize exactly what this interaction is for your Sims, as well as determine whether or not there’s a chance for accidental pregnancies. (There’s Birth Control for that, too.)
“WooHoo Actions > No Strings WooHoo:” Enabled
“WooHoo Pregnancy > Risky WooHoo Percent:” 8
Reasoning: This is the percentage chance that there will be an accidental pregnancy for each time a Sim WooHoos.
“WooHoo Pregnancy > Use Fertility in Risky:“ Enabled
“WooHoo Pregnancy > Try For Baby Percent:“ 60
Reasoning: I like adding drama to my Sims’ lives for story-telling. Totally personal preference, like everything else.
“Other Settings > All Moods Birth Control:” Enabled

CONCLUSION & TIPS
YOU MADE IT! Seriously, if you managed to make it this far, I commend you. MCCC is a BEAST of a mod, and I didn't even touch on all of it. Take your time exploring it and reading the descriptions for each setting if you're curious about what else you can do! The Sims 4 world is yours to mold and change as you see fit with MCCC.
Now, onto some final tips:
  1. Restart the game after making all these changes.
  2. This is by no means static. Make changes as your Sims' lives change or your preferences change. The real world is always changing, your Sims' world shouldn't be any different!
  3. Utilize the MCCC Discord channel when errors occur. This is typically due to mod conflicts, but can also be caused by EA bugs (example: the posturing error). Please try troubleshooting yourself first before reaching out to the support team as they're constantly receiving help requests!
  4. Make sure to check for updates! This is an active mod.
I hope you found this guide helpful. As stated in the beginning, if you have questions about things I didn't touch on, or questions about my various settings choices, feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer them!
If this receives positive responses, I may do guides on other mods such as:
Life Tragedies
Must-Have Mods for Better Graphics
Useful/Interesting Gameplay Mods

My Build:
i7-8700k CPU
GTX 1080 Ti GPU
32gb DDR4 Ram
SSD

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with MCCC, the devs, or its support team, and I am by no means an expert. I simply think it's a really awesome mod that a lot of people are missing out on due to being overwhelmed.
Source: Simmer since I was 8 years old. I'm looking at you, The Sims 2!

If you have any tips or tricks I missed, please share in the comments!
HAPPY SIMMING! <3
Edit: Aah! My first award ever!! Thank you so much to whichever sweet Simmer did this, and thank you to everyone else for such kind responses!
I will be doing a Part 2 for this mod which will go a bit more in-depth and include things like Sim Flags. Thanks again! :)

Another email template regarding the financial liability policy

Feel free to use it if you'd like, but change around some words so that it doesn't go automatically go into the spam section of others' inboxes. I'd recommend emailing or cc'ing [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]), [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]), [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]), [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]), [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]), and [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) .
---------------------
To whom it may concern,
Hello, I hope you are doing well in these trying times. My name is __________, and I am a current undergraduate student at Stony Brook University. As a student who was planning to dorm on campus next semester, I am deeply concerned about the new Terms of Occupancy agreement that has been released from the university. More specifically, I am worried about the implications of the billing and financial liability sections that students are being forced to agree with. I believe that it is completely unfair to all students who are planning to dorm on campus that the university is planning on forcing students to pay the full price of dorming for next semester even if residence halls were to shut down early due to COVID-19 related circumstances.
College students who are already stressed and financially weakened due to the current pandemic situation should not be forced into paying a whole semester’s worth of dorming if the residence halls do happen to have to close early. This is unfair to all students, and is not in line with other SUNY campus policies. For example, SUNY Binghamton has made it clear that if residence halls are to shut down, students will receive the appropriate reimbursements for the remaining part of the semester. I do not understand why Stony Brook University would go against what other SUNY campuses are agreeing to in a move that can only be seen as a malicious attempt to take student’s money.
Even if other colleges are enacting a policy similar to this one, SBU should lead by example and do the right thing. A school like Stony Brook University which prides itself on equality and liberal ideas should not be enacting such cruel and unfair policies that can only be seen as an attempt at monetary gain. While I understand that the university has lost a lot of money during the Spring 2020 semester due to COVID-19, this is not a reasonable or fair solution to that problem. Under no circumstance is it justifiable to force students to continue to pay for dorms after they have been closed. The current pandemic situation should not be used as an opportunity to take money away from students who are already having trouble paying their expenses. Furthermore, not only does this policy place unneeded stress on students, but it also will cause SBU to be seen in an unfavorable light by others who are not affiliated with the university. Any institution that takes advantage of a global tragedy such as the COVID-19 pandemic in an attempt to gain wealth off of their own students will be viewed negatively by even those who were not affected by these policies.
In order to create a more pleasant and fair system for everyone involved, this malicious policy must be changed in favor of one that treats the students with respect and acknowledges that students have no control over the COVID-19 pandemic, and therefore should not be forced into paying housing costs for the remainder of the semester if residence halls are to close. I truly hope that Stony Brook University will rethink their current financial liability policies and treat students more fairly going forward. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Best regards,
__________

I received an order for equipment, credit card processed and was approved. I verified the purchase with Chase twice, but something seems off. Am I still liable if this is fraud?

I received an email earlier this week requesting a quote for projectors. My company provides audio visual equipment as well as installation and consulting. I sent back over the quote, and the contact approved of the estimate of just under $10k. I requested a PO from the client, and was sent one the next day. I then checked out the business, not a lot of information about them, but was cleared as legitimate when I checked with the state attorney general. The purchaser is on the other side of the country from me, but it’s not that weird to get requests from all over the place. I found it odd that they were requesting the drop shipment to go to a different state than they were located. Again, this isn’t that weird in our field as we often times do jobs all over the place depending on the contract. So I made sure to call him and verify the details.
I then sent him a CC authorization form, he called me the next day and asked if he could give me the card over the phone. He provided me all of the correct info, including the CVV number and billing address. This raised concerns as the persons name on the credit card was someone different than himself, and she was located in another state. After I ran the authorization it came back as approved.
Concerned something wasn’t right here, I contacted Chase, the card provider and did a Code 10 check. Everything came back as fine, information was correct. Something still felt off, so I did a little more research and found the shipping address was a storage unit center, which felt off, but again, if it was an out of state installation sometime we will use temporary storage units as a base of operations for equipment. I then did a search for the person who the card was registered and could find no affiliation with the company ordering the equipment. I called back chase again and requested that they follow up with the card holder directly as I am uncomfortable drop shipping that much product with the risk of fraud and then losing all of the equipment and potentially at risk for chargebacks.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to the situation? If after I did all this work, verified the information twice, and then find out this is fraud will I still be held liable?

May/3/2020: Today's News Stories --- Armenian airlines blacklisted by U.S. \\ 3-way clash between Pashinyan-Vanetsyan-Minasyan \\ New raids related to ex-IRS boss \\ Bill to require balanced news on TV \\ Healthcare system capacity & Future of COVID \\ Diasporans \\ Yerevan news \\ more stories...

Armenian airline companies blacklisted by U.S. / Weapon & Cash transport / Syria & Iran / HHK MP

U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) has a blacklist of companies that cooperated with Iran despite a business-ban imposed by the U.S. There are 5 Armenian companies on the blacklist. They are banned from buying or transporting items from the U.S.
 
VERTIR AIRLINES
Vertir Airlines is one such company belonging to HHK MP and former Civil Aviation chief Artyom Movsesyan. It was added to the blacklist in 2013 for helping Iranian Mahan Air. The latter is accused of transporting weapons and cash to the Syrian Assad regime. The size and nature of Vertir's activities make it clear the company was created with the main purpose of serving as a middleman for another [Iranian] company.
Vertir purchased >9 big Airbus jets and gave them to various blacklisted Iranian airlines so they could use them for parts & flights.
Vertir's owner HHK MP also happened to be Armenia Airways's director and one of two major shareholders. He actually owned a company (Main Aviation Technics) which owned the Armenia Airway's stock. The MP made major personal aviation gains after being appointed as HHK's Civil Aviation chief.
This "Main Aviation Technics" company, owned by the MP, made shady money after former officials leased one of its jets for aviation training. In 2019, the Pashinyan administration launched a felony case, saying: "The former officials wasted money by leasing a jet and spending 7x more than what they would spend if they bought a jet."
 
VETERAN AVIA
Another blacklisted airline is Veteran Avia, owned by an Indian businessman. He has jets registered in multiple countries, including Armenia. In 2014, it was blacklisted for helping Syrian Assad's regime by transporting weapons and cash. In 2016, however, the Indian businessman was able to partially clear his name. His jets in India were removed from the blacklist, but the ones registered in Armenia were not.

Pashinyan-Vanetsyan-Minasyan conflict reaches a new level

Serj's media and mining magnate son-in-law Mikael Minasyan is on the run. He is charged with money-crimes. He is also accused of running a black PR media campaign against Pashinyan.
Then there is ex-NSS chief Vanetsyan who was fired in late-2019 for refusing to bust some HHK officials.
And there is PM Pashinyan, who throws jabs at both.
 
Minasyan claims: Vanetsyan met me in Feb-2019 while presenting himself as Pashinyan's messenger, and told me to stop my anti-Pashinyan activities and to donate a sum to some foundation, in exchange for dropping the pending criminal charges against me. I refused.
 
Vanetsyan earlier claimed: don't try to tie me to Minasyan. He still has to face justice in Armenia. The investigation is ongoing.
 
Pashinyan earlier claimed: after 2018 revolution, Minasyan rushed to sell his illegally obtained shares in Zangezur copper mine, SPAYKA, Armenian TV, etc. Vanetsyan abused his powers and illegally obtained some of Minasyan's shares.
 
Pashinyan's brother-in-law QP MP claimed: Vanetsyan extorted Minasyan's company shares and promised him a govt position if Vanetsyan sabotaged Pashinyan and removed him from power. This conversation might have been recorded.

UCOM director's house is raided / Warrant for shareholder's arrest

Prosecutors earlier accused ex-IRS boss Gagik Khachatryan's sons and BHK party chief Dodi Gago's aide of laundering $22mln bribery cash. Khachatryan's sons own UCOM ISP.
Khachatyran son's offices and homes were raided last week. Days later the court issued an arrest warrant for him.
The police also raided UCOM's new director's home. The defendant complaints that documents unrelated to the laundering charges were also confiscated.

Bill to require balanced media reporting on TV / Ownership transparency / No harmful content

QP and Independent MP created a draft bill to require more balanced news reporting on TV, proper notification when the news source is anonymous or unconfirmed, have a segment where confirmed trustworthy info is provided.
 
TV outlets must disclose their real owners and annual financial reports.
TV outlets cannot belong to: acting public officials and political parties or their affiliates, NGOs, convicted felons serving time in prison (ban lifted once the record is cleared), children.
 
No calls for violence, no hate speech against protected groups, no porn or gore during daytime. History documentaries can contain nudity and violence.
No ads or fun shows during a national mourning day.
 
More Armenian-language content. Foreign movies must either be translated to Armenian or presented in the original format with Armenian subtitles. Exceptions are the movies meant to teach the audience a foreign language.
30% of music content must be Armenian music. (zurna dhol intensifies)
 
This is a draft proposal. All of this can change during debates.
Yerevan Media Club responded: we proposed our version of the bill that would have solved everything that wasn't done in the past 20 years. The MPs rejected it and presented their own bill, which doesn't go far enough, and has unclear parts. This bill is cosmetic in nature. Our bill would guarantee the creation of Private Multiplex, while MP's bill only makes Private Multiple legally possible.

13% of all infected are doctors

Healthcare Minister Torosyan: 320 out of 2400 COVID cases were among doctors. Thankfully, none of them died, partly because we instructed >60yo doctors to stay home. This complicates things because the experienced doctors can't help the young, which in turn places more burden on the young and places them at risk.
https://www.armtimes.com/hy/article/187020

Govt launches a guerilla fight against COVID / Healthcare system capacity

Pashinyan, Emergency Coordinator Avinyan, and Healthcare Minister Torosyan held a meeting and said:
 
COVID will be with us for another year until we have a vaccine. We must learn to live with it for now. We're starting a decentralized fight against it.
Unlike in some countries, our healthcare system managed to withstand the load. 850 out of 1500 beds are currently being used. Another 350 infected are kept in quarantined hotels, with 2500 max capacity.
 
Education, public transport, shopping malls, and a few other industries will remain banned. Many industries will reopen, and it's up to the public to exercise personal responsibility. This is the approach that every country will eventually adopt, even those with the strictest restrictions.
New infections in factories will still happen. We will enforce and punish safety violations. Washing hands, resisting the urge to touch your face, keeping distance is important. It's about protecting your family.
Hot weather didn't stop COVID. Arab countries with 40c temps are seeing a big rise.
 
[The three proceeded to discuss scenarios on how to preserve safety while sitting in a building. Not touching surfaces, face, covering mouth while coughing, etc.]
Cafe/restaurant workers will be required to handle silverware with care. Only open-air locations will reopen. The public is the best "police". If you see any business violate hygiene, don't spend your money there. Businesses will realize it's best to respect hygiene otherwise they'll be shut down and lose money.
The best evidence that hygiene helps is the fact that some infected patients lived with their family in the same apartment but never infected them because of basic safety steps like air circulation, hand washing, masks, etc. One day we may have to send the asymptomatic patients home.

Many Armenian cities were renamed after the independence.

Yet many cities and streets are still named after Tsarist Russian and CCCP figures. One of them is Noyemberyan in Tavush.
Noyemberyan used to be called Barana. 80 years later, some residents still refer to it as such. It'll be hard to rename Noyemberyan and expect the public to digest yet another major name-change. Talks about renaming began in 1990s.
Do Noyemberyan residents want a new name? Their neighbors at Alaverdi refused to change theirs. Alaverdi = Allah Verdi (Turkish for "A form given by God").

A Guide to MCCC (Story Progression Mod) & Example Settings

A Guide to MCCC (Story Progression Mod) & Example Settings
Hello, fellow Simmers!
I originally posted this to thesims4, but felt there were probably people here who could benefit from this as well!

BACKGROUND
I had the idea of doing a detailed breakdown of what the mod MCCC is by Deaderpool, as well as providing my personal in-game settings detailing exactly what each of them does. This stemmed from me originally being completely overwhelmed by the mod when I first got it. All I really wanted was a list of settings to attain story progression in my game that also detailed exactly what each setting did. Now that I've tweaked and adjusted the mod in my game for about six months, I feel confident providing others who were like me a more detailed guide of the mod.
If you are more of a visual learner, there are some videos out there that can help as well! I'm more of a reader myself. A quick search for 'mccc sims 4 guide' brings up a few different video options that might be a better fit for you.
If you are concerned about performance for larger groups of Sims, I've included my computer build at the bottom of this post for reference. Those playing on laptops, I recommend keeping groups of Sims to the game's default.
Onto the MCCC Guide!

THE MOD
MCCC, or MC Command Center, is a mod most people use to create automated story-progression with NPCs or previously played households. It also has the ability to "clean" or remove items such as that pesky eyeball ring from NPCs' outfits. In my example settings, you will find I also use the mod to adjust things like Friendship Decay (the amount of time it takes for a friendly relationship to deplete) and employment percentages for each age group. Overall, it's an incredible mod, and if it's your first time dipping your toes into all it covers, fret not! As you get more comfortable with it, you'll be able to fine-tune your Sims experience to be exactly what you'd always hoped it would be (or pretty dang close).
This mod has A LOT of options. Seriously, tons. You can modify just about every aspect of the game to your liking. As such, this post is really long. If you're primarily interested in story-progression and NPC automation (pregnancies, relationships, marriage, etc.), I recommend skipping to MC Population and working from there.

GETTING STARTED
If you do not have the mod yet, make sure you head over to MCCC's designated website and download it. If you're new to the modding world (your life is about to change forever), this guide is a great place to learn exactly how to download mods.
IMPORTANT: In the Mods folder, do not put .ts4script files deeper than 1 folder. For instance, Mods > MCCC 7.1.0 > mc_career.ts4script is OK. However, Mods > MCCC 7.1.0 > Career Settings > mc_career.ts4scripts is NOT OK. Script files will not work correctly if they are layered beneath too many folders.

Finding MCCC on an In-Game Computer
Once you've successfully downloaded the mod, start up the game, select a household, buy a computer, click on the computer, then click on the "MC Command Center" bubble. This will open up a new window with a bunch of categories.

MCCC Main Menu
SETTINGS
Note: These are the settings I have in my game. ALL of these settings are 100% personal preference! Please explore these categories on your own as well, and have fun!
I will go through each overarching category I have modified, and give a brief explanation of what each one covers. If I do not get into detail about one you want to know more about, leave a comment and I'll see what answers I can provide!
Note: If you do not see one of the settings subcategories listed, I've left them as their default setting.


MCCC Settings
MCCC Settings > Relationship Settings: This category focuses on exactly what it says. Here, you can customize various aspects of Sim relationships to your liking.
"Friendship Decay Percentage:" 75
"Breakup Settings > Couple Relationship Change Percent:" 20
"Breakup Settings > Spouse Relationship Change Percent:" 10
"Breakup Settings > Breakup Move-out Sim:" Random Sim
MCCC Settings > Notification/Console/Menu Settings: This category focuses on various cheats that people commonly use when playing The Sims 4. If you enjoy using cheats, I highly recommend checking out TwistedMexi’s All Cheats Mod. In this category, you can determine whether or not certain cheats are always enabled.
“Console Command Settings > Enabled Full Edit CAS:” Enabled
Reasoning: I like having the ability to fully edit townies with no restrictions and while still playing in my own household. You can pull up this option by shift+clicking on an NPC Sim.
“Console Command Settings > Testing Cheats:“ Enabled
“Console Command Settings > Debug Commands In Cheats:“ Enabled
Reasoning: This allows you to shift+click on any object and delete it from the game completely. I love this feature because I can get rid of anything in the world that gets in the way or causes problems for my Sims.
“Console Command Settings > Build Buy Settings > Move Objects Enabled, Free Build Enabled, & Ignore Unlocks Enabled:“ Enabled
MCCC Settings > Money Settings: This one is also a pretty obvious one, but it essentially allows you to turn on things like Child Support, auto-pay for bills, adjust the cost of bills, and more. I do not recommend turning on auto-pay bills if you have Discover University as your student Sim will be charge for bills they shouldn't be.
"Pay Child Support:" All
"Inheritance Sim Type:" All
MCCC Settings > Gameplay Settings: This section covers a lot of different things. I leave most of these as default, but their titles and descriptions are pretty informative if you're looking to try out other things! I caution adjusting Maximum Household Size as it can cause problems in CAS and hurt performance depending on your computer build/laptop.
"Adopt Neglected Child:" Enabled
"Use Random Aging:" Disabled
MCCC Settings > Set Age Span Duration: Want your pets to outlive your Sims? Want babies to stay as babies longer? (I question your sanity, if so.) This is the place to make it happen!
"Human > Child:" 11
"Human > Teen:" 9
"Human > Young Adult:" 35
Reasoning: When sending my Sims to university, I felt like it took up a whole life stage. Young adulthood in the real world lasts until about age 35, so I wanted my game to better reflect that taking how long university takes into consideration.
"Human > Adult:" 25
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC CAS
MC CAS > Offspring: Want your baby Sims to better resemble their parents? Want them to look nothing like them at all? Want them to inherit their body type, and not just facial features? Here's your chance!
"Use Parent Physical Attributes:" Enabled
"Percent Values Variance Percent:" 25
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Career
MC Career: This section is neat because it allows teen and child Sims to drop out of school, as well as adjust how difficult it is to get a promotion. If you have Discover University and feel like it's just not quite hard enough, you can adjust that here as well.
"Teen Employment Range:" 40, 60
"Adult Employment Range:" 85, 95
"Teens Quit School:" Enabled
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Cleaner
MC Cleaner: Are you sick and tired of seeing that stupid eyeball ring that the NPCs just can't get enough of? Are you tired of NPCs wearing every single item type regardless of the occasion? Look no further! Here's your solution.
"Item Cleaner > Remove Items:" Enabled
"Clean Item Parts > Hat:" Select All
Reasoning: If you still want NPCs to wear hats, do not do this option. If you only want them to wear hats for certain occasions, deselect those outfit types. My game was plagued by fedoras, so I did the only logical thing: banish all hats.
"Clean Item Parts > Shoes:" Swimwear
"Clean Item Parts > Lipstick, Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, & Blush:" Sleep, Swimwear, Bathing
Reasoning: I personally really hate when Sims wear makeup to bed or when swimming. The above options remove are for removing makeup from certain outfit types.
"Clean Item Parts > Accessories > Gloves, Left Bracelet, Right Bracelet, Left Index Ring, Right Index Ring, Left Third Ring, Right Third Ring, Left Middle Ring, Right Middle Ring, Leggings:" Select All (I allow gloves for Cold Weather, though.)
Reasoning: I honestly was so tired of the use of accessories, similar to the hats I just decided to ban them all. If you would like to take the time to only remove certain types, please feel free to do so. The eyeball ring HAUNTS me.
"Clean Item Sims:" NPC Sims
Reasoning: Any "Played Sims" in my save have had their outfits custom-tailored by mua. It felt counter-intuitive to have them "cleaned" by the mod when they were already personally customized and styled.
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Clubs
MC Clubs: If you have Get Together, you will see this option in the Main Menu. This allows you to automate NPCs joining various clubs, as well as adjust other things such as the maximum amount of members. (Because who wants to be stuck with the same 7 people all the time? Why not 10? Or 20?)
"Monitor Club Members:" Enabled
"Club Member Count:" 25
Reasoning: I recommend not going higher than this. In fact, you may just want to stick with 20. If you clutter a lot with too many Sims, or a group for that matter, you'll see performance drops, as well as errors due to posturing issues (Sims not having enough space to complete an action/animation).
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Population
MC Population: The next several sections are primarily about story-progression and NPC automation. There are SO many settings here that are highly based on your personal preference. I am one of those people who plays with a finger over the "P" key at all times (been this way since The Sims 2). I micro-manage the heck out of my Sims. If hands-free is more your style, you may find yourself wanting to tweak with more of these settings than I do.
"Moving Settings > Homeless Apartment Percent:" 50
"Moving Settings > Move Out Elders:" Move Non-Ancestral Elders
"Allow Stray Move-In:" Enabled
"Moving Settings > Open Houses:" 3
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Dresser
MC Dresser: This category focuses primarily on the clothes Sims are to wear during certain situations or events.
“Ages To Run On Age-Up:“ Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Elder
“Makeup Settings > Run Makeup Check:“ Enabled
“Makeup Settings > Makeup Ages:“ Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Elder
Reasoning: You should be allowed to rock drag at any age. Or everyday makeup, for that matter.
“Makeup Settings > Makeup Outfits:“ Everyday, Formal, Party, Career, Situation, Special, Hot Weather, Cold Weather
“Male & Female After Career Outfit:“ Everyday
“Replace Situation Outfits > Romantic Festival Situations, Humor Festival Situations, Spice Festival Situations, City Walkby Situations:“ Everyday
Reasoning: Too many pantsless Sims.
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Occult
MC Occult: This category is all about the aliens, vampires, mermaids, and more! Here, you can customize various nuances of each Sim type.
“Aliens > Abduction Settings > Allow NPC Abductions:“ Enabled
Reasoning: My Sim isn’t that special. Let the others be harrassed by the Aliens for once too please.
“Aliens > Abduction Pregnancy Settings > Abduction Pregnancy Percent > Elder Pregnancy Percent:“ 10
Reasoning: They’ve already seen so much in life. They really shouldn’t be subjected to being a… subject.
“Aliens > Abduction Pregnancy Settings > Abduction Pregnancy Genders:“ Female, Male
Reasonings: Why should males be the only ones to have all the fun?
“Aliens > Abduction Pregnancy Settings > Pollinator Gender:“ Female, Male
Reasoning: See above. Also, “Pollinator Gender” had me cackling for a good minute.
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Pregnancy
MC Pregnancy: Alright, get ready for lots of sections. This part gets not only into pregnancy, but NPC marriage as well. You can also specify same-sex marriage percentages, adjust adoption percentages, etc.
"Pregnant Sim Selection > Valid Pregnancy Ages:" Young Adult, Adult
"Pregnant Sim Selection >Days to Run Checks:" Monday
Reasoning: When I did more than one day, my game was practically overrun with NPCs' children. It made for a very lively world, but it was also a bit overwhelming seeing Nancy Landgraab pop out three more babies out of nowhere. More on preventing this to come.
"Pregnant Sim Selection > Play Households:" Disabled
Reasoning: I didn't want only NPCs to get pregananant. I also wanted my previously played households to still have babies, too. If you do not want this, leave the setting on Enabled.
"Pregnant Sim Selection > Pregnancy Percentage > Young Adult Pregnancy Percent:" 10
"Pregnant Sim Selection > Pregnancy Percentage > Adult Pregnancy Percent:" 20
Reasoning: Another attempt to prevent my game from being overrun by NPC children.
"Partner Sim Selection > Valid Partner Ages:" Young Adult, Adult
"Partner Sim Selection > Allow Affairs Percentage:" 5
Reasoning: Because there's no way someone like Thorne Bailey is 100% loyal.
"Partner Sim Selection > Occupancy Preference:" Prefer Home Sims
"Offspring > Maximum Offspring:" 2
Reasoning: Too. Many. NPC. Babies.
"Offspring > Maximum Household Children:" 2
"Offspring > Identical Offspring Chance:" 90
Reasoning: I think identical twins are cool, ok?
"Offspring > Sync Child Surname:" Enabled
"Other Pregnancy > Auto-Marry Percentage:" 66
Reasoning: I had lots of single moms showing up in my game, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I just wanted a world with less absent fathers. I use Sims as an escape from the harshness of reality, alright?! (She says while playing with Life Tragedies.)
"Adoption Settings > Opposite Sex Adoption Percent:" 25
"Adoption Settings > Sam Sex Adoption Percent:" 65
"Adoption Settings > Adoption Ages:" Baby, Toddler
Reasoning: Story-telling reasons in my personal game.
"Marriage Sim Selection > Valid Marriage Ages:" Young Adult, Adult
"Marriage Sim Selection > Days to Run Checks:" Saturday
"Marriage Sim Selection > Bypass Played Households:" Disabled
"Marriage Sim Selection > Marriage Percent > Young Adult Marriage Percent:" 20
"Marriage Sim Selection > Marriage Percent > Adult Marriage Percent:" 45
"Spouse Sim Selection > Valid Spouse Ages:" Young Adult, Adult
"Spouse Sim Selection > Same-Sex Percentage:" 10
Reasoning: I wanted to base this statistic off real-life figures, but could not find them anywhere! If anyone happens to know this, please let me know.
"Spouse Sim Selection > Use Same Age-Group:" Enabled
"Spouse Sim Selection > Occupancy Preference:" Prefer Home Sims
"Other Marriage > Rename Same Gender:" Enabled
"Other Marriage > Rename Opposite Sex:" Use Male Names
YOU DID IT! Only one more category!
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC Tuner
MC Tuner: Seriously need a break after that last one. This one will be a cake walk in comparison. It's a pretty self-explanatory section, but it primarily focuses on specific interactions between your Sims that can happen autonomously. I Enabled/Disabled a few different settings based on my Sims autonomously being brats to other Sims more than I'd prefer.
"Change Interaction Behavior > Friendly Ask If Single:" Enabled
"Change Interaction Behavior > Stop Random Flirting:" Enabled
Reasoning: Tired of Sims being unfaithful because one decided to drink Cupid's Potion.
"Change Interaction Behavior > Allow Multiple BFFs:" Enabled
Reasoning: Because everyone is capable of being the best kind of friend.
"Change Interaction Autonomy > Autonomous Mischief:" Disabled
"Change Interaction Autonomy > Autonomous Mean:" Disabled
--MCCC Main Menu--


MC WooHoo
MC WooHoo: This is all about celebrating and having a party! In bed! WooHoo! Hooray! (That’s what 8 year old me thought, anyway.) MC WooHoo is a separate download, so you will not see this in your MCCC Main Menu if you do not have it installed. Here, you can customize exactly what this interaction is for your Sims, as well as determine whether or not there’s a chance for accidental pregnancies. (There’s Birth Control for that, too.)
“WooHoo Actions > No Strings WooHoo:” Enabled
“WooHoo Pregnancy > Risky WooHoo Percent:” 8
Reasoning: This is the percentage chance that there will be an accidental pregnancy for each time a Sim WooHoos.
“WooHoo Pregnancy > Use Fertility in Risky:“ Enabled
“WooHoo Pregnancy > Try For Baby Percent:“ 60
Reasoning: I like adding drama to my Sims’ lives for story-telling. Totally personal preference, like everything else.
“Other Settings > All Moods Birth Control:” Enabled

CONCLUSION & TIPS
YOU MADE IT! Seriously, if you managed to make it this far, I commend you. MCCC is a BEAST of a mod, and I didn't even touch on all of it. Take your time exploring it and reading the descriptions for each setting if you're curious about what else you can do! The Sims 4 world is yours to mold and change as you see fit with MCCC.
Now, onto some final tips:
  1. Restart the game after making all these changes.
  2. This is by no means static. Make changes as your Sims' lives change or your preferences change. The real world is always changing, your Sims' world shouldn't be any different!
  3. Utilize the MCCC Discord channel when errors occur. This is typically due to mod conflicts, but can also be caused by EA bugs (example: the posturing error). Please try troubleshooting yourself first before reaching out to the support team as they're constantly receiving help requests!
  4. Make sure to check for updates! This is an active mod.
I hope you found this guide helpful. As stated in the beginning, if you have questions about things I didn't touch on, or questions about my various settings choices, feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer them!
If this receives positive responses, I may do guides on other mods such as:
Life Tragedies
Must-Have Mods for Better Graphics
Useful/Interesting Gameplay Mods

My Build:
i7-8700k CPU
GTX 1080 Ti GPU
32gb DDR4 Ram
SSD

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with MCCC, the devs, or its support team, and I am by no means an expert. I simply think it's a really awesome mod that a lot of people are missing out on due to being overwhelmed.

Decent REI sale

I am in no way affiliated with REI. But just wanted to put it out there that they have a decent sale going on right now if any of you were thinking about updating any of your gear. I'm in the US and used part of my stimulus to pay off CC debt and was left with about $300, I'm still currently employed and I have about a year in savings so I figured might as well and I'm set on my food at home for about 2-3 months. My BOB is last on my list to prep since that would be my last option, so I'm missing a lot of the smaller things that would benefit me on a 3-4 day trek outside. They have a good selection of metal tent stakes and some of the smaller things.

*Edit- Some mentioned below I used a poor choice when saying CC debt. It's not carried over debt it's using it monthly and then paying if off completely each billing cycle. This billing cycle the stimulus hit before it was due, that's why I said pay off CC debt. Thanks!

Chance Me for Biochemistry/Law: Ivies/UCs/Other

Hello! I am a rising senior who is seeking a biochem undergrad and then a law degree (patent law). I am currently putting together my college list and I am quite overwhelmed with this and I am not sure what I should categorize as my safeties. Along with that, I'd love for more suggestions of target/match schools that I should research into.
Thank you so much for viewing or replying!
Demographics: Female, Asian, California
~2300 Students, Noncompetitive yet we are an IB school
URM (Vietnamese, majorly underrepresented in higher-level degree careers)
Mom: International School Japanese Lang Degree Dad: Associates Degree @ CC
33k for a family of four, have been homeless during freshman year (past that now thankfully but it affected my academics majorly which plays into my story/essays)
Intended Major: Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Polisci (sort of conflicted)
ACT/SAT/SAT II: All of my test dates were cancelled. Very stressful, however, I am hoping to take the ACT in July.
UW/W GPA and Rank: 4.0 UW, 4.6 W (About 4.45 Cumulative) Rank 1 or 2 (Was rank 1, but I cannot physically be Valedictorian because of how our IB system is set up although I got straight A's)
Coursework: 9th-AP Human Geography, 4
10th- AP Art History 4, AP World History 4, AP Statistics 3, AP Physics 1
11th- IB Chemistry SL, IB History HL, IB Art HL, IB English HL, IB Math HL, Theory of Knowledge (fun 0 period :)
Awards:
3rd in State, Medical Law & Ethics @ CalHOSA
College Prep Scholar (\Questbridge, likely will apply to schools from Questbridge and then RD if I am not matched)*
AP Scholar with Distinction
Honor Rolls/School Subject Awards
Extracurriculars:
National Honor Society 11th, President for 12th
HOSA Future Health Professionals 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, President for 11th, 12th (Planned our first service project in affiliation with HOSA's national service project, however, got canceled so I plan on starting again next year hopefully. We were doing a fundraiser for National Pediatric Cancer)
International Leadership Conference (HOSA) in 10th, a competition because I placed the top 3. Likely would've placed again but CalHOSA 2020 got canceled
Community Service in CSF, Interact, SWES (Society of Women Engineers/Scientists), BETA: Organized teaching STEM to Third Graders, STEM Fairs, Various Summer Programs for Middle Schoolers, Helping out City with Rotary, etc. (50 hrs)
Invited to RYLA Camp/A Leadership Award
IB Personal Service Project (Must be completed for diploma, but roughly 50hrs)
Kode with Klossy (coding scholarship) 2020
Oil Painter in my free time participated in local art competitions. I paint a lot of realism/portraits which heavily are themed with the topics of my essays
Hobby blog with over 8,000 followers which stemmed into my own small business since 7th grade (helped parents with different bills)
Essays/LORs/Other:
My AP Art History/TOK Teacher: 10/10 Very close to this teacher, they know about my struggles, personality, advocacy, work ethic despite hardships
IB Program DirectoMy Biology Teacher: 7/10 Has always proclaimed that he'd help get me into any school I'd like to go to
Counselor: 10/10 I spent a lot of time in conversation with heshe's helped me a lot.
So personally I think that my application's most memorable part will be my hardships essay (questbridge applications will primarily be student's story based) because I endured homelessness (although it won't be a pity essay, more so how resilient I have been despite everything) and then I have had my own interaction with the justice system as a victim which has all strongly defined me as a person. Also, I have been told by many that I am a very strong/impactful writer so hopefully, my essays will be very strong as well.
Schools:
Please help suggest schools that might be suitable for me. With the ongoing pandemic, college tours will be very far and few for me so I've been relying on research and hopefully the opinion of others.
I am looking for a school preferably in a suburb or a city, primarily small private research schools (but I am open to UCs and State schools as well), good financial aid, emphasis on academics, diverse demographics
Through Questbridge: Yale (dream school), Columbia, Brown, Duke, Stanford, Princeton, USC
Reach: The ivies, Stanford
Match: UC Berkeley, UCLA, UCI (not too sure about these being good targets)
Safeties: Cal State San Diego, UCR (obviously, I do not know much about my options)
As previously noted I don't know about very many schools as I've never been exposed to the college application scene, nor have I had much guidance. I apologize for the lack of knowledge on so many amazing schools that I should be researching.

Again, thank you so much. :)

The Whole 'LGS Price Gouging' Thing Needs to Stop.

I'm not affiliated with an LGS, I do not own an LGS, and I do not care about an LGS staying in business in context to the following: Price 'Gouging' FTV Secret Drop the Hot 5 Fetch Land Lair....

This is a PSA To everyone: If people are willing to pay $300-$400 for this secret lair, then that is what the value of the secret lair is worth. Get off your high horse and feels bad, you're not entitled to set the market with wishful thinking and no one deceived you; WOTC put out something they thought was a realistic price point off their old MSRP and LGS's are like Naw Dog, instead of making the 10-15 we'd make off a box, we're going to jack the price up on this because the demand is there.
Your LGS can fall in the same category as a any other store front business; they're going to set margins and make money off of them; anything without an MSRP can be entitled to what the market wants to pay for it; IE a good slice of pizza may be 5 bucks, but it's so much better than your 2 dollar slob jolab that the consume is like, 3 bucks more, hell yeah.

Your LGS needs to pay rent, utilities, taxes, CC transaction %'s, insurance, employees, and amenities for the store before they take money out for themselves to pay their own bills. Just because an interview from a WOTC staff member noted the price point was hopefully around $169 doesn't mean it's going to sell for that when there isn't an MSRP. When ya'll are like SAVE MY LGS, IT'S DYING, well WOTC tried to help out and it failed because WOTC doesn't pay your LGS's bill with MTG; your LGS is likely paying their bills selling you dollar bags of chips, dollar sodas, $10 packs of sleeves, Dice, and Singles; the margins on sealed product are normally terrible; because of the small run and exclusive outlet, there isn't competition from the Ebays and Amazons of the world, so the price point is pretty much what people are willing to pay.
This whole 'plea to the store' shenanigans should stop immediately; who are you to say to some one else, Don't get money legally for something and instead sell me something that has a suggested price point so I can flip it for more. That's just shitty and you're pathetic if you think it's fair for all LGS to sell something without a price point for lower than what the market is willing to pay. If you don't like it, go open your own business for a month, you'll figure out the hard way all the costs of owning a business and won't blink an eye at selling something at market demand.

Corona Virus Research and Stock DD: Part 2

Link to Initial Post
As 19th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer claimed, “All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.”

The Coronavirus outbreak has reached the “highest level” of risk for the world, the World Health Organization announced today. Bill Gates calls coronavirus a 'once-in-a-century' pathogen. The Dow fell over 3,500 points this week.
The US Federal Reserve's Chairman stated "U.S. economy remain strong", Iran has no plans to quarantine cities, The acting US administration is lying to the public, and has barred the top US disease expert from speaking freely to the public.

Countries with First Case Outbreaks between 2/26 - 2/28
  1. Mexico
  2. Azerbaijan
  3. Belarus
  4. Lithuania
  5. Nigeria
  6. San Marino
  7. Netherlands
  8. Estonia
  9. Denmark
  10. Romania
  11. Norway
  12. Georgia
  13. North Macedonia
  14. Greece
  15. Brazil
  16. Iceland
  17. Monaco
Keep in mind the asymptomatic period was reported to be at most 27 days and patients whom recovered are developing the coronavirus and testing positive again, which means public exposure in these countries could have begun weeks ago. By Monday, I estimate that there will be at least 2,000 total new cases in the above countries experiencing the new outbreaks alone.
Why does this matter? This weekend the Corona Virus news will be flowing steadily, thus IMO influencing the virus stocks to continue to rise on Monday and throughout next week.

Controlling the outbreak is going to become increasingly difficult.
To control the majority of viral outbreaks, for R0 of 2-5 more than 70% of contacts had to be traced, and for an R0 of 3·5 more than 90% of contacts had to be traced.The delay between symptom onset and isolation had the largest role in determining whether an outbreak was controllable when R0 was 1·5. For R0 values of 2·5 or 3·5, if there were 40 initial cases, contact tracing and isolation were only potentially feasible when less than 1% of transmission occurred before symptom onset.
Researchers estimate the R0 value of COVID-19 to be likely between 4.7 and 6.6. Further, they speculate that quarantine and contact tracing of symptomatic individuals alone may not be effective and early, strong control measures are needed to stop transmission of the virus.

The Case of Africa
With the continent's high volume of air traffic and trade between China new outbreaks are inevitable.
Without treatment or vaccines, and without pre-existing immunity, sustained Corona Virus outbreaks might be devastating due to the multiple health challenges the continent already faces: rapid population growth and increased movement of people; existing endemic diseases, such as human immunodeficiency virus, tuberculosis, and malaria; remerging and emerging infectious pathogens such as Ebola virus disease, Lassa haemorrhagic fever, and others; and increasing incidence of non-communicable diseases.
Governments are already anticipating demand and addressing supply chain management, mapping, and stockpiling of COVID-19 response needs: large quantities of personal protective equipment, gloves, surgical masks, coveralls, and hoods, and medical countermeasures like antiviral agents.
IMO, the market for the products of Corona Virus stocks will increase exponentially when new outbreaks begin in this continent.

The Stock Market
Things are about to get way worse.
The Harvard Business review predicts that the peak of the impact of Covid-19 on global supply chains will occur in mid-March, forcing thousands of companies to throttle down or temporarily shut assembly and manufacturing plants in the U.S. and Europe. The activity of Chinese manufacturing plants has fallen in the past month and is expected to remain depressed for months.
Brace for a major effect on manufacturing worldwide. It will begin to hit full force in two to three weeks and could last for months. IMO, the only safe plays are plastic, Biotech, and Biopharmaceutical stocks. Liquidate your other positions now so you can buy back in lower.

The Vaccines Stocks
According to the WHO, more than 20 coronavirus vaccines are in development around the world. IMO, I am waiting to invest in the below companies once they release more data on their Corona virus vaccines.

Gilead Sciences ($GILD)🔻6% this week

The US relies heavily on Chinese-made medical devices, with their supply chain disrupted domestics medical supply companies have skyrocket.

The USA
More cases are likely to be identified in the coming days, including more cases in the United States. It’s also likely that person-to-person spread will continue to occur, including in the United States.
Public health and healthcare systems may become overloaded, with elevated rates of hospitalizations and deaths. Other critical infrastructure, such as law enforcement, emergency medical services, and transportation industry may also be affected. Health care providers and hospitals may be overwhelmed.
Congress is working toward approving $6-8 billion to fight coronavirus. White House Director of Legislative Affairs stated the goal is to have Trump sign the funding package next week.

As of 2/28. there are now 61 confirmed cases of novel coronavirus in the United States, according to an update today by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These include:
The 15 US cases include nine in California, one in Massachusetts, one in Washington state, one in Arizona, two in Illinois and one in Wisconsin. Among these cases, there are two instances of person-to-person transmission, one in Illinois and one in California. The latest case in California did not have any relevant travel history or known contact with another infected person, suggesting it could be the first instance of "community spread" of the virus in the United States, according to health officials.

The CDC aims to have ALL state and local health departments testing for coronavirus by end of next week. Word choice of all is interesting here, we already know that the CDC didn't have an ample supply of test kits and they were reported as inaccurate last week. If the were going to provide each state and local health departments with testing capabilities, this might be a signal that test kits developed in the private sector will be distributed.

Looking Forward to Next Week
IMO, the virus news this weekend will be off the charts. As new outbreaks occur and the sustained outbreaks continue, the demand for these corona virus stocks will rise.
I still stand by the recommendation from my initial posting, in which I suggested investing into the companies producing test kits and personal protection / medical equipment.
I am still currently holding $APT, $AHPI, and $CODX. No vaccine companies at the moment. I feel that there is a great deal of profit to be made swinging these stocks using 15 second candle chart & the 50, 100, and 200 day moving average. Take a look at how the stock behaved the last two days and find a plan that can work for you. Watch the volume in premarket as well on the various virus stock to get a sense of where the interest is for that day.

Without treatment or vaccines, and without pre-existing immunity, sustained Corona Virus outbreaks might be devastating due to the multiple health challenges the continent already faces: rapid population growth and increased movement of people; existing endemic diseases, such as human immunodeficiency virus, tuberculosis, and malaria; remerging and emerging infectious pathogens such as Ebola virus disease, Lassa haemorrhagic fever, and others; and increasing incidence of non-communicable diseases.
Governments are already anticipating demand and addressing supply chain management, mapping, and stockpiling of COVID-19 response needs: large quantities of personal protective equipment, gloves, surgical masks, coveralls, and hoods, and medical countermeasures like antiviral agents.
IMO, the market for the products of Corona Virus stocks will increase exponentially when new outbreaks begin in this continent.

The Stock Market
Things are about to get way worse.
The Harvard Business review predicts that the peak of the impact of Covid-19 on global supply chains will occur in mid-March, forcing thousands of companies to throttle down or temporarily shut assembly and manufacturing plants in the U.S. and Europe. The activity of Chinese manufacturing plants has fallen in the past month and is expected to remain depressed for months.
Brace for a major effect on manufacturing worldwide. It will begin to hit full force in two to three weeks and could last for months. IMO, the only safe plays are plastic, Biotech, and Biopharmaceutical stocks. Liquidate your other positions now so you can buy back in lower.

The Vaccines Stocks
According to the WHO, more than 20 coronavirus vaccines are in development around the world. IMO, I am waiting to invest in the below companies once they release more data on their Corona virus vaccines.

Medical Supply Stocks
"Health systems around the world are just not ready," Dr Mike Ryan, head of the WHO emergencies program, told a news briefing.
The FDA is keenly aware that the outbreak will likely affect the medical product supply chain, including potential disruptions to suppliers shortages of critical medical products in the US. The US relies heavily on Chinese-made medical devices, with their supply chain disrupted domestics medical supply companies have skyrocket.

The USA
More cases are likely to be identified in the coming days, including more cases in the United States. It’s also likely that person-to-person spread will continue to occur, including in the United States.
Public health and healthcare systems may become overloaded, with elevated rates of hospitalizations and deaths. Other critical infrastructure, such as law enforcement, emergency medical services, and transportation industry may also be affected. Health care providers and hospitals may be overwhelmed.
Congress is working toward approving $6-8 billion to fight coronavirus. White House Director of Legislative Affairs stated the goal is to have Trump sign the funding package next week.

As of 2/28. there are now 61 confirmed cases of novel coronavirus in the United States, according to an update today by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These include:
The 15 US cases include nine in California, one in Massachusetts, one in Washington state, one in Arizona, two in Illinois and one in Wisconsin. Among these cases, there are two instances of person-to-person transmission, one in Illinois and one in California. The latest case in California did not have any relevant travel history or known contact with another infected person, suggesting it could be the first instance of "community spread" of the virus in the United States, according to health officials.

The CDC aims to have ALL state and local health departments testing for coronavirus by end of next week. Word choice of all is interesting here, we already know that the CDC didn't have an ample supply of test kits and they were reported as inaccurate last week. If the were going to provide each state and local health departments with testing capabilities, this might be a signal that test kits developed in the private sector will be distributed.

Looking Forward to Next Week
IMO, the virus news this weekend will be off the charts. As new outbreaks occur and the sustained outbreaks continue, the demand for these corona virus stocks will rise.
I still stand by the recommendation from my initial posting, in which I suggested investing into the companies producing test kits and personal protection / medical equipment.
I am still currently holding $APT, $AHPI, and $CODX. No vaccine companies at the moment. I feel that there is a great deal of profit to be made swinging these stocks using 15 second candle chart & the 50, 100, and 200 day moving average. Take a look at how the stock behaved the last two days and find a plan that can work for you. Watch the volume in premarket as well on the various virus stock to get a sense of where the interest is for that day.
