2022.01.25 17:53 Emperor_PVP Conviction of El Chapo upheld by U.S appeals court, not a good thing
NEW YORK, Jan 25 (Reuters) - The Mexican drug kingpin known as "El Chapo" will stay in prison after a U.S. appeals court refused to overturn his 2019 drug trafficking conviction despite a report that jurors had tracked the case in the media during his blockbuster trial. A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan on Tuesday rejected 10 arguments by the defendant, whose real name is Joaquin Guzman, for a new trial, including that deplorable jail conditions undermined his defense.
"I'm sure Mr. Guzman will seek Supreme Court review," Guzman's defendant's lawyer Marc Fernich said in an email. "We're disappointed that substantial allegations of grave jury misconduct continue to be swept under the rug ... all, it appears, because of the defendant's matchless notoriety." The office of U.S. Attorney Breon Peace in Brooklyn declined to comment. Guzman, 64, was convicted in February 2019 of trafficking billions of dollars of drugs and conspiring to murder enemies, stemming from his role as a leader of Mexico's Sinaloa cartel. He has been serving a life sentence at Colorado's Supermax, the most secure federal prison, and was also ordered to forfeit $12.7 billion. Guzman's appeal focused on a Vice News article published one week after the verdict, where an unnamed juror said at least five fellow jurors followed media coverage of the trial, and lied about it to the presiding judge.
The coverage included accusations that Guzman had drugged and raped teenage girls, which Guzman's lawyers denied and U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan refused to allow into the trial. Judges in high-profile cases ordinarily instruct jurors not to follow their trials in newspapers, TV and the internet, including social media. Circuit Judge Jon Newman said the unnamed juror's unsworn, uncorroborated statements to Vice News were not "clear, strong, substantial and incontrovertible evidence" requiring Cogan to haul jurors back for questioning. "None of the allegations in the Vice News article shows that any juror was not impartial, harbored bias against Guzman, or was otherwise unfit to serve," Newman wrote. Newman said Cogan had also during the trial spoken with two jurors who saw information about the case, and acted within his discretion in concluding they could be fair.
Guzman also objected to being confined after his January 2017 extradition to a small windowless cell at least 23 hours a day in the since-closed Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. But Newman said the jail conditions, "harsh as they were," did not make the trial unfair, citing Guzman's history of prison escapes and managing his illegal affairs from jail, and safety concerns if he lived with other inmates. Emma Coronel Aispuro, Guzman's wife, was sentenced in November to three years in prison after she admitted to helping run his drug empire, and involvement in his July 2015 escape from a Mexican prison through a tunnel dug into his cell. Guzman was recaptured in January 2016.

I'm looking for any hyperpop suggestions that are inspired by the mainstream synthpop of late 2000's early 2010's. Think of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Britney Spears, etc. Bonus points for featuring the classic saw synth / analog brass sound!

2022.01.25 17:53 Quacky- Achromatopsia questions
Hello reddit, today I've met someone on vrchat that states that they have complete achromatopsia and can only see shades of black.
I've learned that it is very rare and serious, sometimes requireing the person to wear special glasses inorder to walk in natural light, i find it hard to believe that a person with this type of colorblindness to be able to wear a vr headset which is just a bright screen several inches away from their eyes.
But I'm not always correct, so I've come here to ask the question. I'm only asking for my own curiosity.

2022.01.25 17:53 LanceFree Interpretation of CSN lyrics from "Carried Away"
I happened to be listening to the semi-popular song, "Carried Away" and when the harmonica part came on, I paused- Wait, is that Neil? But it's CSN (only) Turns out it's Stills playing harmonica, and since he and Young were both in Buffalo Springfield, I called it good and moved on to lyric interpretation.
The song is about lust, or simply fondness for a beautiful woman Graham Nash saw, most likely while in port somewhere. But I wonder about this segment- is it something deeper about "the man" being the system, cops, obligations, or is it about the companion with the beautiful woman? I think the "moving through my changes" could reference finding the chords and playing the next part on time. Not finding much with google searches.
Moving through my changes as fast as I can
Trying to bring a balance to me and the man
Part of me is screaming to say
I want to be carried away

2022.01.25 17:53 Lowkey-Simmy777 How did you discover KGATLW? I’ll start.
So I (M,22) actually play Xbox quite frequently and in about 2018 I met a buddy (Chad) on a game called Rocket League, and he was heavyyy into King Gizzard, especially Nonagon Infinity at the time and he kept trying to get me to listen but I always blew it off but I could usually hear some of it playing through his mic lol anyways fast forward a week or 2 and I was introduced to another buddy of his (Julien) (they had been friends for 10 years before I met them, Julien actually showed Chad KGATLW) and us 3 ending up playing together heavy for a couple years at this point but I still never picked up listening to the Gizz. Fast forward again to about late October in 2020 right before album KG came out, Julien recommended again that I listen to KGATLW and so I listened to Polygondwanaland and then Nonagon Infinity, and when KG released Nov 20th it was over, I was Sold 🤣 I couldnt stop listening at all… I think by mid December of 2020 I had bought tickets to Red Rocks and have been actively excited about anything Gizz, listening to any and every album they got. It’s going to be super exciting bc I’ll be meeting them (I already met Julien in 2021) but one is from New Jersey and the other is from Indiana and I’m from Ohio so it’ll be the perfect friendship tale to tell on my death bed one day hahah Okay enough from me! Let me hear your stories!
Side note, I wrote this while Cyboogie was playing 😌

2022.01.25 17:53 mattyjets Season Tickets Prices
So I just opened my invoice for next year's season tickets and my priced went up almost 80%! (79.16 to be exact) This is ridiculous. I'm a diehard fan, but season ticket holders haven't gotten anything extra from the team at all this season. They used to do a meet and greet, a couple comp games, and point to upgrade depending on how much money you spent at the arena. All of those things are gone, and then they raise prices like that?! This team hasn't brought home a championship, and aren't even on TV, and they wanna do the people that buy season tickets (a luxury especially these days) like that? I'm pretty pissed, especially because apparently my tickets (Sec 357) recieved more of a raise than other sections. Anybody else getting jobbed like this? Go Nuggets but jeez...
