[S2E5] First Steps __HOT__



I know all of the arguments for not reading that report, but as a parent, your first job is to protect your kid and Nick gave him that information because he believed there was something about Abigail that Nolan needed to know.




[S2E5] First Steps



Before we dive in, a little background on how these conversations came to be. I first connected with Tom back in 2016. At that time, he had spent 15 months walking from his home in New Jersey all the way to Ecuador. And when I first heard his story, I was hooked.


The entirety of the sequence here gets so enormously confusing. Bradley said that she demanded Cory's reinstatement and Fred's firing, but now Fred says that he's going to reveal that Cory was the one who paid him off. If Cory got offered that job in the first place, it was presumably of a piece with getting rid of Fred. Why would Fred be able to successfully threaten to reveal that Cory was behind his payout? It would have been the board who got Fred into the contract they then had to wiggle out of. I apologize for expecting too much from the logistics of this, but it makes less sense by the week.


Stella experiences some viciously racist street harassment, and ... I understand why the show chose to include it. But at least in the short run, instead of really digging into the ways it affects Stella, they make it part of Yanko's story of being cancelled over a single comment. Specifically, it becomes about how he steps up to defend Stella from racists and winds up in a fight that's caught on video. See, Yanko is good!


All the World is Birthday Cake is the fifth episode of the second season of The Orville. The USS Orville makes first contact with another world and a new crewmember joins the ship.


All the World is Birthday Cake was written by Seth MacFarlane and directed by Robert Duncan McNeill, who also directed the first season episode of Command Performance. Music was composed by John Debney.


At a banquet, the Orville's crew and the Regorians celebrate first contact and share different aspects of their species. "It really is a utopia," the Science Prefect marvels. Grayson shares that next week will be her and Bortus' birthday. Inexplicably, the Regorians are outraged and the crew is arrested.


On live television, the First Prefect announces that the first day of Giliac has arrived and any infants born must be ceded to the government. Mercer arrives and attempts a peaceable agreement for the return of his officers, but First Prefect refuses and tells them to forget about Regor 2.


MacFarlane was referring to a January 2016 blog post by NASA that became famous, wherein the author pointed out that the relative positions of the stars when the Zodiac calendar was first conceived were very different, prompting many to change their astrological calendars to reflect the changes.[5][6]


Filming began in early March 2018[n 1] under the direction of Robert Duncan McNeill. The return of McNeill, who earlier had directed the episode Command Performance in Season 1, was first revealed in May.[7]


Music was composed by John Debney. For the initial scenes of the Orville responding to the Regorian's invitation for first contact, he composed "big and exciting and beautiful" in response to creator Seth MacFarlane's music directions to write a song that was "propulsive and expectant." When the shuttle breaks through the clouds of Regor 2 to see the city below, Debney made the song quickly jump to something more "sublime" to capture the awe of first contact.[8]


Early cast lists were published to IMDB in early May,[9] which announced the character of Chief Advisor Makkal, and in June.[10] Actress Heather Horton announced she would appear as Science Prefect in June.[11] The surprise appearance of Ted Danson as a Planetary Union admiral was first revealed by director Jonathan Frakes on August 4.[12]


After evading the police, Rue makes her way to the one person who she knows she will be able to get drugs from: Laurie (Martha Kelly). Desperate for anything that might alleviate her unbearable withdrawal symptoms, she pleads with Laurie to give her any drug. Laurie is hesitant at first, seeing as Rue has no money and offers to pay her with jewelry instead, but acquiesces in the end.


The writhing blue-black cloud becomes a smooth ball. Jonas steps into it and it snaps back to its usual state. Adam watches him go, slightly teary eyed. He knows that Jonas is about to lose some of his naiveté.


True History: Blair Castle, the filming location for the Scottish trip, is actually the traditional home of the Duke of Atholl in real life, too. Of all the castles and grand locations used for filming these period dramas, this may be the first time the location used was the real family seat of the aristocrat being depicted. And the Duke of Atholl commands the only legal private army in Europe, the Atholl Highlanders.


The first 15 minutes of Euphoria Season 2, Episode 5 are excruciating to watch as Rue suffers a complete breakdown. Fuelled by withdrawal, anger, and desperation, Rue lashes out as her mother Leslie (played by Nika King) and younger sister Gia (Storm Reid) after her mother questions her about doing drugs.


The episode is also welcome for its return of several fan-favorite characters from the first season, including Thorkell, Floki, Gunnar, and obviously Canute himself. Although certainly unexpected, fans are pleased with how the episode turned out.


"Tern Haven" shows the Roy family meeting with another billionaire family, the Pierces, in a step toward a potential acquisition of the Pierce family media conglomerate PGM by Waystar RoyCo. The episode introduces several new characters, including Nan Pierce, and marks the first on-screen appearance of Naomi Pierce, previously only mentioned.


Logan officially announces his plans to acquire rival media giant Pierce Global Media (PGM), but informs the family that they first have to spend the weekend at the estate of the Pierce family to allay concerns about the Roys' moral character. PGM's readership and sales have floundered over the last two years, presenting a clearer opportunity for the Roys. Nonetheless, Logan, who is staunchly determined to win the acquisition, gives his family meticulous instructions on how to present themselves to the Pierces. Kendall is told to arrive later than the rest of the family under the pretense of "volunteering."


In the middle of the night, Roman and Tabitha attempt to have sex for the first time, but Roman struggles to perform, and Tabitha is put off by his unusual fetishes. He visits Gerri's room and masturbates without difficulty to her erotic humiliation.


An applicant concluded his formal education at the end of the first semester of his senior year to pursue a research opportunity in his major field with a private company. The research led to advancement of the state of the art in his field. The applicant became a permanent employee with the company and worked there for 6 years, advancing to a senior position. During this time, the applicant took continuing education courses in his field.


Note that only graduate education in excess of the amount required for the next lower grade level can be combined with the appropriate level of experience to qualify applicants for positions at grades GS-9 and GS-11. For example, if a school's requirement for 1 year of graduate study is 18 semester hours, only graduate education beyond the first 18 semester hours or 27 quarter hours can be combined with GS-7 level experience to qualify for a GS-9 level position. Thus, 9 semester hours of graduate education and 6 months of GS-7 level experience cannot be combined to qualify for a GS-9 position.


Competency-based qualifications may be used for minimum qualifications screening and subsequent assessments, which represents two separate steps in the examining process. Screening for minimum qualifications is usually the first hurdle in the selection process.


My Uncle Bill says I'm a good judge of character, so, anyway. Doug alerts Frank that they're just a step away from nabbing Lucas. "This needs to be clean, Doug. One fall of the axe," Frank reminds him. Later, Claire visits with the first lady and asks her to consider joining her as an advocate for those who have survived sexual assaults. Meanwhile, a man named Seth Grayson tracks down the wife of the deceased doctor that performed Claire's abortion, and threatens to expose what her husband did. He claims to be working for the Underwoods, but that claim seems dubious at this point. Frank is taken on a walking tour of the old Civil War battlefield, with particular attention being paid to an area called the Bloody Angle. Frank learns that his great-great-great-grandfather died in battle there, which is news to him, as he wasn't aware that any Underwoods had fought in the war. Frank has an intense encounter with the reenactor tasked with portraying his long-dead relative. Gavin's handler confronts him and scolds him for not being tough enough with Lucas, earlier. The handler threatens Cashew and makes Gavin sit and bark like a dog. On the surface, this was about showing Gavin who the boss is. In reality, this was some kind of weird sex game, I'm convinced. Gavin is having second thoughts about turning on Lucas. Doug meets with Feng, who expresses displeasure that Frank defied one of his demands form their earlier meeting. Feng brags about his wealth and taunts Doug, an alcoholic in recovery, waving a drink in front of his face. Feng orders that the United States reintroduce a WTO lawsuit that it had just dropped, a measure that will aid Feng and Tusk in their business ventures.


"If the vice president fails to cooperate, I will simply bypass him," Feng warns Doug. Frank seems willing to call Feng's bluff, however. "If a bullet comes my way tomorrow, it will not be an accident, and I must be quick to duck," Frank tells us. Claire and a congresswoman meet with representatives from the Joint Chiefs, to discuss the possibility of allowing sexual assaults that take place in the military to be prosecuted in civilian courts. The representatives argue that such a measure would "... fundamentally erode the military's ability to self-discipline." Can you, with a straight face, consider that argument? There are people who think the way that the fictitious Joint Chiefs did in this scene. Does that scare you as much as it scares me? Also, the fact that in real life America, in 2014, independent prosecutors are not responsible for prosecuting sexual crimes in the military, is absurd. I digress. The first lady interrupts the meeting and proves to be a strong ally for Claire, punctuating a few of her key points with the Joint Chiefs, who appear totally incompetent. this was a big win for Claire. President Walker confers with Tusk and Frank, concerned with how Frank's talks are going. Tusk accuses Frank of being two-faced with Feng, which, of course, he is, but only so he can get at Tusk. Frank pleads ignorance and tosses some barbs at Tusk. Walker tries to stay above the fray, but tells Frank and Tusk that they both need to stop back-channeling and allow Durant to handle all talks with China. Oh, yeah, that will happen, I'm sure. Without missing a beat, Frank tells Doug to set up a meeting with Feng. Doug agrees, but also warns Frank about Seth Grayson and what he might be digging in to. Back in Washington, Grayson meets with Claire. Grayson reveals that he wanted Connor's job, but rather than apply through normal channels, he did the Underwoods a favor by eliminating any link between Claire and the doctor who performed her abortion. Claire wonders whether that's the case, or whether Grayson might be trying to extort her. "I'm not extorting you, Mrs. Underwood. I'm just highlighting the difference between a good choice and the right choice,"Grayson tells her. "Here's what I know. It is far easier for you to destroy me than the other way around." 041b061a72
