[S4E7] We're Done [PORTABLE]

Omar Navarro (Felix Solis), Marty, Wendy (Laura Linney), and attorney Jim Rattelsdorf (Damian Young) meet with the FBI at an abandoned mall. Jim Rattelsdorf begins by stating Omar has ceded power to his nephew, Javier Elizondro. In exchange for freedom of mobility and a promise of immunity, Navarro has provided the information necessary to apprehend Javi and to also neutralize the Navarro cartel entirely.

[S4E7] We're Done

He and Torres attend a senior officers' meeting, called to discuss plans to collect data about the pulsars. The two try their best not to look embarrassed by what happened in engineering. Chakotay conducts the meeting, while Janeway sits quietly, looking as ill as before. When it is done, she dismisses the staff, all except Paris and Torres. Alone with them, she harshly chews them out for their "adolescent behavior" for senior officers, setting a very poor conduct example.

In sickbay, Neelix' appearance has changed drastically. His entire head is now covered with spots as opposed to just his temples, spots much larger than what he had, and his whiskers are gone. The Doctor, after examining him, finds that, like Chakotay, his genes too have been altered. Instead of aging, Neelix is actually changing species, becoming a Mylean, the race of his great-grandfather. The Doctor leaves Paris in charge and goes to the science lab to work on their genetic analyses. Torres is assisting The Doctor but soon after he is gone, two more crewmembers come in ill and calls notifying of impending new arrivals start coming in. With nothing else that can be done for them, and some of the reports being emergencies, Paris releases Chakotay and Neelix to their quarters.

She arrives at the holodeck and enters the Da Vinci simulation. The Doctor has disguised himself as a painter teaching a bunch of holographically-created art students. He urgently informs Seven of a conclusion he has arrived at: someone aboard is deliberately causing the genetic alterations that are afflicting the crew. Why this is being done, he cannot say. But he and Torres were getting close to finding the culprit and were "dealt with." Seven surmises that communications may be monitored, if this accusation is true.

He agrees and, to gather more information, he modifies her ocular implant to scan visually along the frequency on which the genetic tags are transmitting. After this is done, she looks around the simulation but sees nothing out of the ordinary. She leaves to search the rest of the ship, intending on reporting back to The Doctor using the isolated comm frequency with which he has tapped into her audio implants.

In her mind, Suzanne has a glimpse of Prince Vannevar (Bryan Dechart), who is pacing around a room and clutching a book close to his face while muttering to himself. Suzanne tells Nelli that a madness is coming for them all and it will destroy the Anarchs. She wants Nelli to join them, as they will be stronger together. Nelli refuses. Suzanne says they will all die, but Nelli still refuses, as she won't listen to anyone but herself. She has fought for everything so far to keep everyone safe. Suzanne says she is living in a fantasy and that the Camarilla has lasted for a lot longer than the Anarchs. Suzanne thinks they can change the Camarilla from within. Nelli asks how the Prince is doing and Suzanne says he is fine, but he also knows the darkness is coming and he will do what needs to be done. Nelli says she will do the same.

In the previous episode of Poldark, Elizabeth and Morwenna both realized they were carrying demonic embryos. Will they pose for an OMG-we're-both-preggers-at-the-same-time photoshoot like Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner?

Ross is like, Um, not so much! My twig and berries are literally out right now. The fact that we leave the kids at home all the time and ignore them when we're actually around is enough fodder for their future therapy sessions, let's not add witnessing their parents boink to the list.

Across town, Malfoy shows off the new mansion he bought with blood money and announces he will host a masked ball so that Geoffrey Charles and all the other rich Londoners have another opportunity to puke all over the place.

We don't want to write ourselves in a corner so we try to have these early discussions with the writers just to make sure that we're setting ourselves up to go in the right direction. We don't know a lot, but we do know a lot of the big broad strokes. At the end of season two, we knew about Billy. We knew that the Russians were going to come in. We didn't know the mall and stuff, but again, we know these big broad strokes. That's sort of where we are in season four. We have the big broad strokes. It's just now about filling in those lines in the details. We're pretty excited about where it's potentially going to go. Again, like we said, it's going to feel very different than this season. But I think that's the right thing to do and I think it'll be exciting.[16]

When we pitched it to Netflix all those years ago, we pitched it as the kids are... The Goonies in E.T. That's their storyline. And the adults are in Jaws and Close Encounters [sic] and then the teens are in Nightmare on Elm Street or Halloween. But, this year, we don't have the kids. We can't do The Goonies anymore. And so, suddenly, we're leaning much harder into that horror movie territory that we love. It was fun to make that change.[26]

As they had done with the Demogorgon from the first season, the Duffers opted to use the Dungeons & Dragons character of Vecna as the basis of this season's antagonist, something that the child characters would recognize and understand the dangers due to their familiarity through the role-playing game. While Vecna was not fully introduced in Dungeons & Dragons materials until 1990 through the module Vecna Lives!, and only had been alluded to in the lore prior to that, the Duffers believed that Eddie was an advanced gamemaster that was able to extrapolate how Vecna would behave for purposes of the show.[29]

We started off with his life cast, and to make sure everything was going to be super skin-tight, we reduced the life cast by a certain percentage all over, so once we had a plaster form of his entire body, our guys here started modeling the body in all shapes and forms in the Plasticine, which took several weeks to do that. From that, we split the body up into various sections... I think it was about 18 pieces in total, and they all went on to their own respective formers made out of either fiberglass or epoxy resin. And then we made molds of all the separate Plasticine pieces and then once we had these molds, we were able to create prosthetic appliances, and we've done them in a mixture of materials.[53]

Many people have been expecting Martha to die since before the end of the first season, with The Americans' showrunners insisting that her demise was never their plan for just about as long. But we're in the middle of season four now, everything is falling apart, and it's hard not to feel like Martha has been backed into her last corner.

Exactly. Well, you know, everything in Texas is big. So that's, that's why this hotel is wonderful. So today, we're going to do something special. First of all, we're not going to do a fun thing, because all of our fun things are out. Yeah, exactly. And then we're going to do a, we're gonna have a conversation around compensation benchmarking. And we want to talk about compensation benchmarking, the good and the opportunities, not good and bad. But we like to call bad things opportunities, opportunities for improvement. And so when Dwight and I were talking, we're, we were kind of going back and forth on, there's a lot of things around compensation benchmarking that I think can be demystified. Especially for people who want to learn more about how compensation benchmarking works. If you kind of think about it Dwight, compensation benchmarking is like one of the original HR analytics, because you're taking lots of forms of data, you're summarizing it, you're looking at the statistics, and you're trying to measure the population by taking a sample.

And we do that by utilizing salary surveys, right? Published by major vendors like Mercer, Willis Towers Watson, AON Hewitt and companies like that actually aggregate a lot of that data and create really good data out of it. So what we're going to do today is we're going to talk about things that are good. And then we'll talk about opportunities.

No, no sharing, the department had one computer. And I said, But how am I going to do all of my analytics and my analyses on the market with everybody sharing the computer? They say, Oh, well, you don't really need it that much. You'll take you'll take turns. And I said I would have loved to work for you. But no, thank you. But But that's but the evolution there of technology has now gotten to a place where as we're doing compensation analytics. And we're doing and we're using surveys that are very advanced and doing a lot of QA activities actually inside of surveys inside of survey technologies, and not having to do back and forth using paper to your point before to participate, or spreadsheets to participate and getting feedback through through lots of red marks on spreadsheets. Now, it all happens within technology. So a lot of those, either QA or data quality issues can be dealt with, quickly, easily. I think one of the other benefits of that technology is now we can involve managers much more easily in the matching process. And therefore the data gets better! So there's a lot of really cool things about compensation benchmarking in the modern era, that enable us to have more confidence in the data, as well as have more confidence in our analyses.

But it also goes back to your point, which I really love, which is education. Whether you're a company that's been doing surveys for a really long time, or whether it's so an industry vet, or whether it's a person who's doing market pricing for the first time. To me, there's always more education, there's always something new that they can be taught. And then I can learn actually even though I've been doing it for over 30 years. And still, I learn something new every day when I go do it. And that's because it evolves all the time. The point that you made around multiple sources, we do have to educate our clients to not rely on just one source. Because the opportunity there is that to your point, one source could skew a result because either they have a participant or they don't have a participant that is either high or low, and the other survey doesn't and therefore is a little bit more moderated. Having both of them together enables you to have a more even sample. And I like to use the word triangulation, it helps you triangulate what the market is. Because, you know, for those of you who've heard me speak, I love talking about this in the context of this is an art form. It is not a science. Anybody who tries to make matching and survey processes into science experiments, they fail, because they're saying, Oh, well, you know, I want to know who the participants are. And I want to know this. And I want to know that you can know who the participants are. And the person could have done a really good job matching. But they could have excluded a bunch of people because. 041b061a72
