Lenovo's latest Legion gaming laptop relies on an external GPU

  Lenovo's latest Legion gaming laptop relies on an external GPU Lenovo is kicking off 2020 with a gaming laptop that needs a companion to thrive. It's introducing the Legion Y740S, a slim 15.6-inch laptop (billed as Lenovo's "thinnest and lightest" gaming model) meant to couple with the company's first external GPU, the Legion BoostStation. It has some decent horsepower with up to a Core i9 processor, 32GB of RAM and a 1TB PCIe SSD, but you're stuck with integrated Intel graphics if you buy nothing else -- you absolutely need that eGPU if you're going to play any modern 3D games. At least the 4.18-pound weight and 0.58-inch thickness make it easy to stuff in your bag.

There are several controversies surrounding the Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi, including aggressive recruiting practices, elitism, rampant sexual abuse scandals of minors, and having multi-million dollar offshore holdings in tax havens.

Marcial Maciel was the founding leader of the Legion of Christ , based in Mexico, and its general director from 1941 to January 2005.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Catholic Church has removed Mexican Fernando Martínez from the priesthood after considering him guilty of various sexual abuse crimes against minors, the Legion of Christ religious order said Monday.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith decided that Martínez could not continue his priestly duties, but allowed him to remain as a member of the Legion of Christ and the church, a decision that upset his victims.

One of them, Ana Lucía Salazar, who had reported being raped by the priest when she was 8 years old, commented with irony on Twitter.

In Community of Christ , formerly the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, priesthood is God's power and authority to minister in the church and to conduct God's business on the earth.

“The Pope decided that the gentleman continue in the church ranks after raping children,” Salazar wrote Monday. “There's zero tolerance.” The punishment comes nearly three decades after the abuses were reported to Martínez's superiors in the 1990s.

The Legion was founded in Mexico in 1941 by Marcial Maciel. Reports of abuses by its members have been emerging for decades. In 2010, after Maciel's death, the Vatican instituted a reform process following an investigation that showed its founder had created a system of power based on sexual abuse, silence, deception and obedience that allowed him to lead a double life “devoid of any scruples and authentic sense of religion.”

In December, the Legion made public a report that identified 33 priests and 71 seminarians who sexually abused minors during the past 80 years. A third of those cited, including Martínez, were also victims of Maciel.

Legion of Christ confirms Vatican probe into sexual abuse allegations. The Vatican is investigating seven priests from the Legion of Christ religious order for alleged sexual abuse of minors and another two A preliminary investigation cleared two other priests accused of abuse , the order said.

In November, the Legion released a document about Martínez that spoke of abuses that began in 1969 in Mexico City and continued through the 1990s. Cases have been reported publicly as recently as last year and include abuse of girls between the ages of 6 and 8 at the Instituto Cumbres in Cancun. Salazar was one of those cases.

A persistent complaint of the victims of clerical abuse has been the lack of criminal sanctions against the abusers and those who covered up the abuse. Pope Francis has insisted that the church will not tolerate such conduct.

Martínez is currently in Rome and until now had been allowed to continue in the priesthood though not performing duties in public.

The Legion's announcement comes a week before its leadership holds its general meeting.
