Offseason changes in the peloton: a recap ahead of 2022

If you're anything like me, you usually spend the first few weeks to months of a new cycling season playing catch-up: transfers, team kits, race names, even schedules: lots of things are shiny and new and hard to keep track of during the offseason, a traditional time of rest and contemplation.
But no more, as I present to you a recap of the changes in the peloton you might have missed during this offseason, so you can hit the ground running when the first televised races start rolling around this week!
WorldTEAMS The biggest news in this area is the dissolution of Team Qhubeka-NextHash, formerly known as NTT or Dimension Data. That's right, the African formation has kicked the bucket after years of financial struggles. The team is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker. It's a stiff: bereft of life, it rests in peace. Its metabolic processes are now history. It's off the twig, it's shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible. It is an ex-team.
Qhubeka-Next Hash leaves behind a conti team called Qhubeka (under Italian license) that doesn't have any of the 2021 WT riders under contract. We'll come back to where some of their riders went in the transfers section.
No PCT team has made the step to WT to take its place, meaning the number of men's WT teams has decreased from 19 to 18. And try to remember, Cofidis and Wanty are WT teams (for the third and second year respectively).
Other than that, there's the usual name and sponsor changes to report, so let's look at a comprehensive list, with changes in bold.
2021 >> 2022:

ProTeams The number of second-level teams, the ProTeams, also decreased this year, from 19 to 17. Both DELKO and Vini Zabu folded, with no continental teams stepping up. That leaves 17 familiar ProTeams, but with a few name changes. Androni Giocattoli - Sidermec became Drone Hopper - Androni Giocattoli, and Rally Cycling became Human Powered Health
Team Kits Multiple teams are taking inspiration from Bora's 2021 kit and have gone for the 'white on top, colour (gradient) on the bottom' approach. Cofidis 2022 pretty much just plagiarize it but in red, while BikeExchange 2022 goes all-in on the gradient. Israel 2022 already had the white on top-colour on the bottom thing down, but have added circles now to stay cutting-edge. Trek 2022 and QuickStep 2022 join in by just changing their sleeves white. INEOS 2022 go for both the sleeve change and the gradient.
Interestingly, BORA itself has changed it's 2022 kit away from the gradient, going for full colour in planes of green, red and black. Expect the rest of the peloton to follow suit in 2023.
Two more changes: Lotto-Soudal lose the black shoulders for red, and Movistar go dark: after four years of whimsical sky-blue, they're taking a step back to the darker blue of their roots.
TRANSFERS A quick overview of some of the top transferred riders and their new teams for 2022. Astana, BORA and UAE are the biggest buyers of the offseason.
Races Hamburg Cyclassics is now BEMER Cyclassics. Big whoop.

2022.01.24 10:49 wastevens Was Tolkien referencing Teens with Tweens?

During the setup for Bilbo's going away party, Tolkien mentions that Frodo had been in his 'tweens', a late adolescence of the twenties that last until a coming of age at 33.
Now, this reads like a comment on 'teens' to the present audience, but I thought the present conception of teenager-dom was relatively recent, or at least post-dating Tolkien himself.
Was Tolkien referencing a life stage we would recognize as 'teenage', or was he just (to his mind) making something up that happened to retroactively become a reference?

2022.01.24 10:49 MistaHate4 Different Caitlyn build scenarios

Hi guys! How is it going, I hope you are all doing well. Let me briefly introduce myself, I’m a Caitlyn main who has ~120k points but I also play a lot of Jinx, AD twitch and Samira. I think I can properly itemize with the last 3 champions I mentioned, but Caitlyn is a mystery for me. Currently I’m running Kraken Slayer, Phantom Dancer, IE/LDR or Gale, LDR, IE both with lethal tempo. I saw a ton of people are going fleet, Stormrazor, RFC, Eclipse (I think saber is playing this rn) but I can’t really understand when to build this. Can someone give me a list of scenarios with the different builds or runes (something like what to build against certain champs or comps) or link any other discussion where this topic is deeply analyzed? Thank you for reading and answering, forgive my poor English, it is not my first language.

2022.01.24 10:49 CommandaarMandaar So, Heyyyyyy ... No Real Reason, But How Much 'Done You Think It'd Take To Kill A Hamster?

Okay, obviously, there actually is a reason.
I had my son's hamster out of his cage for his floor time in the bathroom just a bit ago, and noticed he had been out of sight behind the trash can for a pretty decent clip, which isn't like him. I moved the trash can over so I could see him, and found him holding a well-chewed seal from a take-home bottle, with a pretty sizable amount of residue goo on it. I guess either my husband or I must have thought it went in the trash can, when it actually fell behind. Eek! What the hell, what kind of hamster goes nuts on something that tastes that bad?? So, what do you think? Am I going to have a high hamster, or a dead one? Should I give him a shot of Naltrexone??? (Not actually going to do that, just trying to lighten the mood with a bad joke). Or do you think maybe it might not have been enough to harm him? I will feel fucking horrible about this if it kills my kid's hamster ... and I kinda like the little guy, too.
