The first expansion to FFXIV was announced yesterday, entitled "Heavensward".  Looks to be pretty awesome, and includes:

-  Level cap raise from 50 to 60 across all jobs and professions.
-  Massive new areas.
-  A new player race with both male and female characters.
-  Multiple new jobs.
-  New Primals, one of which will be completely unique to FFXIV.
-  Many new dungeons more than 3 or 4.
-  High-end raids
-  Airships, Airship, Airships Free Companies can band together and build their own airships.
-  New gear and recipes.

Will be out in Spring 2015.  Between this expansion and the ongoing patches (2.4 is rumored to drop this week), they are consistently adding a huge amount of content to the game.  Every time I feel like I might be getting burned out, they drop in something totally new that keeps things fresh. 

Bard is up to ilevel 107 (max is ilevel 115), I have one other glass maxed as well and am working on White Mage, and I've started getting serious about the crafting and gathering classes.  Still so much to do...  smile

Lots of PC customization information.  I really hope Disable Gore (22:55) is in the console version.  I know my kids will enjoy watching me play so I would love to be able to turn this off

That option only disables the display of blood splatters on your characters after battles.

Right, not all gore but specifically "persistent gore".

I'd say it's really important to know your matchups. You're not going to be able to handle the unfavorable ones if you don't know all the subtle ways your special moves can counter theirs. Also keep in mind that the input lag is going to be far less in person than what you're used to training at home, so that may throw off your combo and reversal timing.

Of course, when the IRS DOES look into it, you cry foul and scream that they're being unfairly targeted.  No one wins unless they believe the same thing as you.  Of course, to be fair, that can be applied to almost everyone.

Does anybody here have any experience in amateur or professional fights? Boxing, Muay Thai, MMA, or Ju Jitsu? I'm currently training hard for my third amateur Muay Thai fight this December and I have a few questions and concerns that I hope some of you can answer.

The people of Houston and their religious leaders must be absolutely secure in the knowledge that their religious affairs are beyond the reach of the government.

If there was ever a chance that I would hate voted for Abbott, this statement would put the nail in that coffin.  So if they want to engage in blatant political maneuvering, snake handling, polygamy, or child marriage, their religious freedom should keep them sacrosanct from government oversight?  Bullshit.

What one engages in and what one says are two different things. One of them is protected by this thing called the 1st amendment.

You're correct, the church has every right to say whatever they please from the pulpit.  The government also has every right to ensure that what they say is in compliance with the guidelines of non-political speech that provides them the significant tax-exempt advantages they enjoy.  If those regulations are violated, then the church should have no problem paying their taxes.

I am sure there is no problem with that and if the IRS feels they have violated it I am sure they will investigate. The city of Houston however has no business in it.

In essence unless they were campaigning for a specific candidate they have a great deal of leeway.

Currently, the law prohibits political campaign activity by charities and churches by defining a 501(c)(3) organization as one "which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office."

The IRS has published Revenue Ruling 2007-41, which outlines how churches, and all 501(c)(3) organizations, can stay within the law regarding the ban on political activity. Also, the ban by Congress is on political campaign activity regarding a candidate; churches and other 501(c)(3) organizations can engage in a limited amount of lobbying (including ballot measures) and advocate for or against issues that are in the political arena. The IRS also has provided guidance regarding the difference between advocating for a candidate and advocating for legislation. See political and lobbying activities.,-Churches-and-Politics

They are allowed to advocate for or against issues. Just not for or against specific people. In any event if they have violated the federal tax law that is for the IRS to look into not some politician with an agenda.

What are you cookies set to? (Wild guess)

I do restrict third-party cookies, but that shouldn't make a difference for the forum...and it's something that suddenly quit working a while back after logging me in automatically for years. Maybe I'll try changing the cookie settings just to see what happens though...
