2023.06.10 03:02 AutoModerator Inter Milan vs Manchester City Live Stream REDDIT

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 28-year-old could drop to the bench in favour of Riyad Mahrez on the Cityzens’ right flank against the Nerazzurri in Istanbul.

🔴✅ Man City vs Inter Milan Live

Like Inter’s Simone Inzaghi, City coach Pep Guardiola has less than a week in which to make his final decision regarding the starting eleven in Istanbul.

Both Inzaghi and Guardiola have developed fairly settled starting elevens throughout their sides’ strong respective finishes to the season.

However, according to the Corriere, Guardiola could make a few changes to the team for the final against Inter.

The newspaper report that, compared to the team that beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final, Guardiola is thinking of three changes.

Man City Star Bernardo Silva Could Be Dropped For Inter Showdown
Perhaps the most eye-catching change that Guardiola could make would be on the right flank.

Former Monaco midfielder and Portguese star Bernardo Silva has been a key player for City over the last few seasons. The 28-year-old certainly underlined this with his decisive brace against Real Madrid in a semifinal second leg.

Bernardo also started for City in the FA Cup final against their city rivals United.

According to the Corriere, however, Guardiola is seriously considering dropping Bernardo to the bench against Inter.

The newspaper reports that former Leicester City man Riyad Mahrez could take his place in the starting eleven.

Meanwhile, the newspaper report that goalkeeper Ederson will regain his starting place. Stefan Ortega had been the man to start in the FA Cup final against United.

2023.06.10 03:02 _Timboss r/JustGoodNews will be going dark on June 12th in protest of Reddit's API changes

Hi All,
I will be making JustGoodNews (and JustBadNews) private on June 12th to protest reddit's policy change for using their API. During this period the subreddit will be rendered inaccessible to all users. This collective action is intended to raise awareness and urge Reddit to reconsider their recent API changes. Our primary goal is to initiate a productive dialogue with Reddit, hopefully leading to a reversal of the detrimental modifications they have implemented.
​Starting on July 1st, Reddit has unilaterally decided to impose exorbitant charges on third-party app developers (Relay, Reddit is Fun, Apollo, Baconreader, Narwhal, and indeed u/GoodNewsBot that powers these subreddits) for utilizing their API. This decision has far-reaching consequences that not only hinder app developers but also affect the experience of moderators and users alike. The lack of maturity in Reddit's official app makes it difficult for us to fulfill our responsibilities as moderators efficiently, has poor accessibility features, and it has also left many users dissatisfied with curated ad-filled browsing experience.
GoodNewsBot use of Reddit's API exceeds Reddit's stated free usage allowance after 1st July, and it's simply not viable for me to pay Reddit to allow u/GoodNewsBot to continue to crawl the Reddit API to find good and bad news stories on top of server costs to run the bot that I already pay for out of my own pocket.
Some of the consequences of Reddit's proposed changes to their API are better visualised here.
Here is the open letter to Reddit regarding this change if you would like to read and sign it.
If you would like to show your support, please also consider doing the following:
I really do appreciate your understanding, support, and active participation in this important endeavor. Building u/GoodNewsBot and these subreddits has been a fun and rewarding project, but I believe this drastic action is in the best long-term interest of our subreddits and Reddit as a whole. It is through the strength and dedication of our communities that we can strive for a better Reddit experience for all.

How I Went From $0 to Millionaire & Beyond With Real Estate Investing

What if you could take all my real estate knowledge and download it into your mind — for you to use and for you to profit from?

That’s why I created this program! It’s the closest way I could do that! Elon’s Neuralink isn’t out yet, so I gotta do it this way.
For those who don’t know… I was just a regular guy working at Jamba Juice who has owned $20 million in real estate.
Real estate has changed my life.
Not many people realize that real estate investing is why I had a net worth in the millions even before I even started making any real money on YouTube.
And before you think “ahh, I don’t think I have the cash right now to build my real estate portfolio”
…remember, I started from scratch.
🔰 I came from a broken, immigrant home with divorced parents.
🔰 I left home and stepped into the world with no money.
🔰 I worked several jobs (like Jamba Juice) that left me unhappy and unfulfilled.
🔰 I saved what I could and invested every penny.
🔰 My net worth was in the millions before any significant “YouTube money”
I got into my first property at 19 and it instantly boosted my net worth by around $100,000. This was when I only had about $9,000 in the bank.
More on how I did that later…
Maybe right now investing in real estate feels out of reach.
You might be in a paycheck-to-paycheck loop.
I actually recommend that the first $20k you have you use towards real estate. Not trying to do stock options first which many of you are doing…
Read that again…
Even if your credit isn’t perfect yet, even if you have to take a higher rate, or pay mortgage insurance… you need to figure out how to get into real estate now.
This way, you can build a base where you’re controlling hundreds of thousands of dollars of net worth.
Or maybe you’re already well on your way to growing your real estate investments, but you want to learn ways to accelerate them and build more passive income?
Would it be nice if…
You could use the real estate strategies that have helped me grow my wealth even if you:
✅ Have ZERO Investing Experience.
✅ Have SOME Investing Experience.
✅ You’re Looking for Passive Income and Cashflow.
✅ You’re Looking for a Side-Hustle to Build Wealth.
✅ You’re Hunting for Deals (Including wholesaling topics!).
✅ You’re Licensed OR NOT.
✅ You Speak English (Useful Globally / Internationally).
Or you are…
✅ A Brand-New Investor ($0 Net Worth) — You’ll get my step-by-step guide.
✅ A Somewhat Experienced Investor ($25,000-250,000 Net Worth).
✅ An Experienced Investor ($250,000+ Net Worth).
✅ ALSO this is extremely useful for: Agents, brokers, lenders, CPAs, & industry members
(Your clients expect you know this; why not make it easy for you to make sure you do?)
You’ll be able to benefit from the 360+ lifetime-access lectures no matter where you are in your journey with real estate investing.
If you know me and my story, you know that I was a guy working at Jamba Juice who now has over $20 million in real estate.
I was also a busboy cleaning off plates of hamburgers at Red Robin…
When I became an adult, I stepped out into the world with pretty much zero money.
I started with nothing and have built a net worth that to me thinking about how far I’ve come – is pretty crazy.
I work now, not because I have to. I do it because I’m passionate about helping others learn from my mistakes and gain any perspectives I’ve found on my journey.
When I was making those tasty drinks for thirsty customers at Jamba Juice, I secretly plotted my escape.
I grew my skills, learned a ton, and started investing anything I could.
Even before my YouTube income, I grew my net worth into the millions through some hard work and good financial decision-making.
It’s been a while now that I could have retired and moved somewhere else with maybe a Mediterranean climate like the French Riviera or something… but I love teaching this stuff.
If I had to tell you one thing about growing your net worth, it would be this: START NOW…
Don’t wait any longer to learn the principles that can help you grow your income, investments, and wealth.
Start today.
You need to get on the exponential net worth curve as soon as possible. The sooner you start, the better.
You do not want to wait on this.
So if you’re wondering…
“If I wanted to start now, where would I even begin, or what would I do next?”
Well, that’s why I created this course…
To help you grow your net worth with the power of Real Estate Investing.
I break everything down for you in an organized, easy-to-understand way.
This program is about the psychology needed to succeed as a Millionaire investor for life, the art of negotiation and deal-making, and how to make passive income and cash flow.
I want everyone who goes through this program to walk away feeling confident about real estate investing, dealing with sellers and buyers, inspections, renovations, hacks and pitfalls, investing methods, tax strategies and so much more.
We’ll talk about shopping for real estate, valuations, and financing.
We’ll cover the exact steps to START today, whether you’re starting with $0 or with $1,000,000+.
If you’re already making good money, this course will help you get to that next level of wealth faster.
Maybe you even want to learn how to build generational wealth where your children’s children will benefit from your investments.
If any of this is interesting, then this course is for you.
This course will be wide-ranging covering topics for all investors including beginner, intermediate, & advanced investing topics.
  • New investors will learn ground-up knowledge from how to start AT ANY AGE (we’ll have various start points and segments to share exactly recommended courses for starting at various ages).
  • Advanced investors may benefit from a new perspective on topics they thought they were already experts on (such as negotiations, dealing with tenants and contractors, etc.).
  • About 25 to 30% of our students are international students. My aim is to teach fundamentals and principles that are applicable globally.Certainly, we might use specific examples to the United States, but if you understand the concepts, you will be able to apply them globally. This is why we say we like to teach rather than give you some cheat sheets simply to copy. People who learn this information should be able to adapt it to their local region within 20 to 30 minutes of talking to a local lender or agent.
Crucial Economic Principles for a Strong Foundation in Real Estate.
✅ The Mentality of a Millionaire Investor.
✅ How To Start From $0, or $20k, or $150k, or $500k
✅ Special Notes for investing at 19 vs. 30 vs. 50+ years old
✅ Different Investing methods (AirBnBs, Flips, Wholesaling, and more)
✅ Finding Deals, Financing, Negotiation and Closing
✳️ New Lectures are Regularly Added (Example: Market trends or law changes).
And the goal of all this is to do it while working less, making more passive income, and finally getting onto the path to retiring early.
“You want to get to the point of getting your money to work for you as soon as you can… instead of the other way around.”
If you have little to no investments and don’t think you have the money to start now, but you really want to build your net worth… then don’t wait.
There’s no such thing as too early with this.
I know real estate can be scary.
We’ll cover everything you need to know to get on the right path and have the confidence to make the right financial decisions even if you don’t have faith in your current knowledge and skills.
And, if you are already making a high income and have investments, then you’re ahead of the game.
This course will help you get to that next level faster and can help you accelerate your net worth to reach your financial goals sooner.
This is my real life, the advice I’ve gleaned from many, the actions I’ve taken, the painful experiences and losses I’ve suffered, and the big financial wins I’ve experienced.
Also, if you’re wondering,
“But Kevin, is now a good time to invest?”
The training in this course is important no matter what the economic conditions are.
Even if the market is super heated, there are always deals to be found.
It’s about knowing where to look and what to look for.

2023.06.10 03:01 BrittanySkitty [PC][Early to mid 90's?]Kids Game? Art Kids game?

Oh boy... I barely remember this game.
Platform(s): Windows PC.
Genre: game? I can't remember if it was educational or more based on art.
Estimated year of release: I am guessing somewhere between 1990 and 1995. At the latest, late 1996.
Graphics/art style: Cartoony, colorful
Notable characters: I vaguely remember some parrot flying around in the main room. It... might have been blue?
Notable gameplay mechanics: I honestly can't remember much besides there was some coloring segment where you click and add colors to a picture. I know there was a picture of a kitten(s) playing with yarn. I also remember coloring with rainbow gradient.
Even though I never beat it, reading wasn't really required to enjoy whatever I did.
Other details: I called this game "Crayola Crayola Rock" because something that sounded like that would play when I was playing/booting the game up. It was not called this and I know my dad would correct me. It was also on a floppy disk rather than a CD. He remembers the game, but not the name of it.
The game's hub was in some messy room. The coloring activity was accessed from there by clicking on it. If I remember correctly, it was on the mid-right side of the room.
I don't think it worked after Windows ME, but did work on 1998 if I remember correctly.
Sorry, this is all I can remember 🥲

2023.06.10 03:01 sunflower_1970 Can serotonin syndrome cause nerve damage? I've recovered from most of my health issues (I'm about 80% back to where I was before I got sick), but nerve/muscle problems in the left side of my face, neck, upper inner thigh, and genitals persist. Does this sound like I had SS? Or something else?

I want to stress I'm not looking for medical advice on what to do further. This occurred in late 2020 and just want opinions on if people who have also taken Lexapro can give input on if they think I had serotonin syndrome or not. I was never diagnosed so I do not know. I've had a lot of medical testing done in the past 3 years that has not gotten me any closer to a known cause.
Long story that I wrote more in detail here, but the gist of it is, I suddenly was not able to get a 30mg dosage refill of Lexapro that I used for OCD/Anxiety reasons in June 2020. I researched things that could help with withdrawal, and people recommended 5-HTP as a good supplement. I took it for about a month or so, maybe a month and a half. I didn't notice anything different when taking it, so I eventually stopped taking it. I probably stopped taking it in late July 2020 or possibly at most, late August 2020.
I went back on 10mg Lexapro in late September 2020, and about 3 weeks into that, suddenly had horrible and now chronic health problems such as brain fog, extreme fatigue, body weakness, nerve sensitivity issues/tingling and burning, muscle pain, neck stiffness, chest pain, memory loss, sinus inflammation, and blunted emotions and libido.
I did not take 5-HTP at the same time as the Lexapro, I am 99.9% sure of it, and only took it as a temporary replacement. I quit 30mg Lexapro just before going on 5-HTP, and I didn't feel sick at all when doing that.
I am no longer on Lexapro, and I have seen some improvement with my issues. My health problems only began once I re-tried Lexapro. I had been around medical professionals and at an ER for anxiety reasons, so it is possible that I caught a virus like COVID, which I've seen cause many of the symptoms I have. I believe the 5-HTP I got at the time was an over the counter 200mg supplement that you can get at CVS, this one to be exact. I took it once a day. When that ran out. I took a 100mg supplement for about half a month and then stopped.
I didn't feel sick at all when taking the 5-HTP, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't the cause of my health problems, but maybe people here would know better? I linked the detailed version of my story above, because repeating it here would be too lengthy. I explain all the medical testing I have had done since this started. Around 95% of my blood work and testing has been normal. The only abnormal results have been low Vitamin D, low iron, and high CRP/ESR results.
I don't think it was serotonin syndrome, as nothing like that happened when I took the 5-HTP. Serotonin syndrome is usually acute, and this was more of a slow onset of problems. I was very anxious in 2020, but I was anxious before taking the 5-HTP. I read that 200mg of 5-HTP isn't very much, and that it doesn't stay in somebody's system for long, so I feel like maybe it being the cause of my very acute health problems doesn't seem likely.I did read that 5-HTP crosses the blood-brain barrier, so I don't know what this would mean in terms of what happened to me.
Do my symptoms seem like common serotonin syndrome issues? The body warmness, stiffness, etc, does, but the sinus inflammation doesn't, and I've never read of nerve issues from serotonin syndrome.
I remember in late 2021 I had a very weird sharp pain where when I touched the right side of my penis, the top of the left side would hurt. It went away, but I still have nerve issues in the left side of the head of my penis.
The nerve issues are mainly in the left side of my face, neck, chest, genitals, and seldom in my left foot, in the sole area. My neck feels painful and stiff a lot on the left side, I would get quick, almost zap-like chest pains on both sides of my chest a few months ago, but now it's only on the left side, my face on the left side will sometimes feel tingly, burning, or weak, or numb, my genitals only hurt in the left testicle and on the left side of my penis when I move it a certain way. The right side of my leg feels weak at times too. My left foot would have a burning feeling sometimes)

2023.06.10 03:01 LilSlappy1 Tried to remain open minded

When the Trill boys announced they were leaving, I figured it was a bit or something. Then, with that vague-ass post on the TMG app, I realized it wasn't. However, I thought it was just a difference of opinion between Cody, Noel, the Trill boys, and I didn't want to jump on the hate bandwagon. But after trying to shut the Reddit down for two weeks, deleting comments on the most recent podcast, and not allowing Ben and Emil to promote their new podcast other than saying "follow us on socials," I'm pretty much done. Brooke and Conner do a decent job, but (just in my opinion) they come across as more annoying/shallow than charming half the time. Zach and Wahlid are pretty good, but they seem kind of lost on what their deal is. TMG/Bonezone has been super low effort, and it feels like Noel is really leaning towards stand-up more these days. So, for those reasons, I can't in good conscience give TMG any more money. It just isn't worth it at this point.
TL;DR Tried to be open minded but the shady moves and mid content are causing me to move on from my TMG subscription.

Overall Top 30 Index Fund (6/1 - 6/8)
Every 4 weeks, the window resets and who is in the fund gets changed around.
How much of each share gets weighted is based on price at the beginning of the window. This is designed to give a better idea of the top players at each position, sport, etc. over larger periods of time (if you just invested on PS, generally, what sort of returns could you get if you focused on the top players at a given position, sport, etc.?)

2023.06.10 03:00 Chilkist Would Garchomp actually drop to UU?/How good would it be in UU?

Garchomp has been the face of OU for multiple Generations, being Ubers for its very first. But in Generation 9, it still has all the tools that made it good, rocks, solid defensive typing and better than average speed. It even got spikes. Its niche as a fast hazard setter is also pretty good, being the second fastest one behind Meowscarada while also having rocks. It doesn't make sense for it to actually drop. Also, how good would Garchomp be in UU? I don't know much about the tier so I would be interested.

2023.06.10 03:00 JMartell77 Has anyone ever played a Champion fighter? Aka In your opinion what is the worst subclass.

So I was flipping through the books today helping one of my PCs out with some prep, when I looked at the Champion fighter and thought to myself "Huh, why don't I remember this existing?" Then I noticed for the first SIX levels you only gain: Crit on 19-20 and nothing else. Then when you get to level 7, you get the miraculous abilities to add half your proficiency bonus to STR DEX and CON Checks, as well as Jump a little better.
Compared to some classes this is absolutely insane and I have no idea how it has apparently made it through 5e's entire life span without any changes or upgrades.

2023.06.10 03:00 Throwaway156469 After working 5 months, 50-60 hr a week, salary, in a region barely afloat with no help, instead of a thank you, all I get is being told that 3-4 hr of my drive time a day as a field tech will not count.

Honestly, the title is the TL;DR. This is rambly and my grammar is bad. I am really sorry for how long this is.
I have no support system. I have no savings. I am taking care of someone who means a lot to me and needs help, but can't get it yet. The point is, I have already been under so much stress that my work's reaction to all of this is simply pushing me over the edge and I don't know who else to ask. Who to reach out to. I don't know if things are going to be okay.
I picked up this really awesome field tech position a few months ago. After a month, my boss was no longer with the company... and it turned out he didn't train me at all. I learned more on my own the two weeks after he was gone than any of the month he was "training" me.
And over the course of the 4 months since, I have worked my butt off to keep this region afloat because I am the ONLY tech here. None of the equipment is updated. Vulnerable devices need to be located and liquidated ASAP. Purchasing is taking 3 and a half eons to get equipment out to sites so I have to work with not enough equipment... as all the old existing equipment begins to fail. None of the internal knowledge about the region was recorded either, so I had to identify that as well (ie what equipment we do have, what we don't, what is available for issue, what needs to be yeeted out a window, etc). The region is 2-4 hr wide in terms of drive time, so on average I usually end the day almost - but not quite - 2 hr away from home. I have to time it that way in order to reach all my sites before they close (often having to skip lunch and breaks). As a result, most of my drive time is at the beginning and end of the day.
It sucked. It meant that if I wanted this region to survive, I needed to put in excessive hours. But I am salary, and as far as I was told by that point, normal work in my region didn't qualify for any extra effort bonuses.
Now before I start, I want to address the why. Why did I tolerate all of this without pay, essentially? Well, to start, because as much as I would like to MC the hell out of them when they first started to drop the ball and make them realize how much I do, the client I take care of does amazing work for people and their communities. To only do my 40 hr a week would mean letting them suffer and fall. It would mean people not getting the help they need. And the other field techs were constantly getting recognized for much more minor things. What reason did I have to think I was going to be any different?
Now I managed to keep up. I put in 50-60 hr a week on average. It got to a point where I was solving so many issues simultaneously that if it wasn't major enough, I just didn't even put a ticket for it because I just didn't have TIME. Like, oh, you need a new mouse? Here is a cheap wired one I was about to throw away, try that.... as I work on these 40 other issues. I am not going to take 5 minutes to fill out a whole ticket about it when I start working at 8 am and finish working at 9 pm. I want to watch YouTube. I want to doomscroll Reddit. I want to sleep. I don't want to stay up making 40 tickets about people who don't understand how the monitor also has a power button and is in fact not a desktop. They are wonderful, beautiful people, and those issues and questions are very valid, so I take them very seriously. These people need to focus on their jobs that are helping so many people, not on petty IT problems. However... wasn't worth the effort of a whole ticket. Especially when I wasn't getting any extra effort pay. I used to do them at first but got burnt out too fast. On average my timecard now shows around 8.5-10 hr a day, sometimes the full 12-13 hr.
Now, I was about to start PTSD treatment so a couple of weeks ago I reached out to my boss to explain the situation. I told him the state of my region and that I will not be able to keep up with this anymore, especially when they keep asking me to find and wipe these old vulnerable devices to such an excess and in such a time frame that it was a full-time job on its own. I still had normal tickets and issues I had to resolve as well. I couldn't do both and only work 40 hr a week. That was when I finally got told that if I simply recorded all of this, I could have been getting extra effort hours the whole time!!! No one just bothered to tell me. Apparently no one actually looks to see if you worked an excessive amount each week, just that you work at least 40 hr. Because for some reason, as salary, we are required to do 8 hr of work a day, and if we don't, then PTO gets deducted hourly. Make that make sense.
So my boss tells me that the workload should be decreasing soon once all the old equipment is pulled (at once), and that I had been doing a good job.
This gave me some hope. I thought, maybe, I might have some work-life balance. I just had to make it another month. And since he said I did a good job, maybe I might finally get some recognition! Sure, by that point, I have seen colleagues get recognized for much smaller things over and over while I got nothing, but hey, it just wasn't my time yet, I guess.
So last week was a test of if I will get extra effort pay. I will find out at the end of the month, although I feel like the odds are very low. That week was my calmest week yet. I only worked 10-12 hr a day every day! I was done working by almost 7 pm every day, it was great. I was still exhausted, but I got everything done. People had functioning devices to get their jobs done.
Last Wednesday, I made the mistake of mentioning how I was thankful for all my drive time counting since I lived more than 20 miles (the minimum distance needed for expensing mileage) from any site. You see, the travel policy for field techs said that the first and last travel of the day (so to and from home) didn't count towards your timesheet unless it was more than 20 miles (aka a "normal commute") away. This was just how I had interpreted this rule the whole time and my original boss agreed because it just felt like common sense. However, it turns out, my brain placed a comma where there shouldn't have been and in fact, reading back, I interpreted it wrong. Apparently, first and last travel doesn't count at all unless it is outside your assigned region. My region was just big.
And that was all my boss seemed to care about. My first and last travel will never count. REGARDLESS of the distance. Sure, if I cross into the next state, he considered that excessive enough (so around 3-4 hr one way), but he specifically asked me for a list of sites over TWO HOURS AWAY ONE WAY. I am supposed to just give away 4 hr of my day for free? After everything I have done for thing company?
Nearly all of my sites are around 1 hr 30 min to just under 2 hr away from my home without traffic. My closest is about an hour away. I cannot efficiently stop by the closest site every time on the way home. It would mean adding an extra 30 min to an hour just to stop by my closest site. I think this first/last site policy was made for people who live like 30 min away from their closest site at most. I guess I was a type that was never accounted for.
This puts me in an impossible situation because it feels like I really have only three choices if I stay here and they don't change their policy in my case:
  1. Stop by my closest site on the way to work and on the way home everyday: I wouldn't even be doing any work at this site or able to get into the building since it would be after closing hours, so I worry about it being considered a sort of time fraud, like, you only went there to get extra money! You did nothing billable there, you should have just gone home! It would also add an extra 30 min to 1 hr everyday, just to have 2 hr of total drive time not count in the end. Driving an extra 30 min to 1 hr simply to make 30 to 1 hr of that 1.5 hr drive home count toward my time card feels so stupid. I would rather just go home at that point. "But what if you just work 30 min to 1 hr less then to make up for it," I have too much work to do and I don't want to let down these people who need their technology to do the great work they do.
  2. I could lie and say I went to my closest site on the way to and from home: personal principle here. I avoid lying at all costs - like Buddhist-level dedication here, just minus the actual Buddhism. Also, I feel like they can just later decide to fire me for time fraud after I end up being just too much hassle to deal. They can't fire me now, but what if they hire me some "help" who ends up simply being a replacement.
  3. Plan my day to arrive at my first site by 8 am and leave at 5 pm for an 8 hr day: You see, ironically, in this case, my drive time will count... because traffic! Remember that 2 hr remark from my boss? When you add traffic, almost all my travel time doubles. I make an effort to avoid traffic conditions so I can spend more time... you know... working... Leaving during normal people times on normal people roads will mean I will be spending probably around 5-6 hr a day driving to and from home (my time driving between sites always counted so that isn't the issue). So I would regularly be getting 14+ hr days. This would be my only option where I get a lunch break though.
  4. Keep doing what I am doing: I will only have around 8-9 hr count everyday, if even sometimes. On average about 3-4 hr of drive time will not count. I will be able to keep up with my region, not need to work as much as the other options, but I will never get any recognition. I don't have time for lunch breaks. I will be working for free. I have no motivation. It just makes me want to cry... I am also scared because with my mental health deteriorating, I know I cannot keep this up. I already collapsed these last two days, I am just so lucky my office managers and receptionists have been looking after me when I have been on site because I have been a complete mess. All I can think of is why? It makes me so hopeless.
I am currently trying to get them to compromise and let me just deduct 30 min each way to and from home every day, but to be honest, at this point, they have lost my trust. This isn't the first time they dropped the ball. My very first bonus was supposed to represent 40 hr of extra work I did over a 3-week period. What did I get? If converted to an hourly rate, it would be considered below the federal minimum wage. It was insultingly low. Apparently, most of what I did didn't count somehow! I was devastated. My interim boss at the time tried arguing that mileage reimbursement WAS the bonus. I was still pissed and upset, so they decided to give me an extra couple hundred dollars. Which was barely anything after taxes.
I don't trust them anymore. I want to get out. I feel so unsafe. I have seen the worst in humanity when it comes to management and corporate, so I know exactly how bad it can get. I just have no support system. My lease is coming up for renewal at the end of this month and the landlords haven't gotten back to us. I can't afford to move. My credit score sucks right now. What if they just decide they don't want us to stay and don't tell us until the day the lease expires?
Now I am looking for a new job, but the work that I do I have done in a short period of time. My biggest hang-up is the length of my work experience, not the quality or skillset, simply because I am doing a job with less than 1 yr recent experience that most need 3-5 yr for. HR often times won't believe me. I had one phone screen but unfortunately, I don't have hands-on experience in configuring VMWare (my last job started training me in it before they went under) which was too important to not have. Which makes sense, they are looking for that type of skillset, and I don't have that specific experience.
I am just so tired. I don't know what to do. I know my company would bend over backward to remedy this because they cannot afford to lose this, but I worry about potential retaliation since it is so easy to hide in seemingly unrelated things. I worry about them trying to hire someone behind my back, and then because no one will believe me when I say I can do the things I do, I end up never getting hired again... then getting evicted... then my best friend loses his only safe space and chance to recover... I have so much to lose. I don't know what to do.
Oh, and I just found out my new work insurance doesn't cover therapy apparently, so I can't do my treatment anymore. I still have to find out a way to fork over the $400 I now owe which I didn't know I would be.
Has anyone been through anything like this before? What did you do?

2023.06.10 03:00 AutoModerator How to watch UEFA Champions League Final 2023 Live Stream Reddit

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 28-year-old could drop to the bench in favour of Riyad Mahrez on the Cityzens’ right flank against the Nerazzurri in Istanbul.

🔴✅Live Stream: Man City vs Inter Milan Live stream

🔴✅▶ Man City vs Inter Milan Live

Like Inter’s Simone Inzaghi, City coach Pep Guardiola has less than a week in which to make his final decision regarding the starting eleven in Istanbul.

Both Inzaghi and Guardiola have developed fairly settled starting elevens throughout their sides’ strong respective finishes to the season.

However, according to the Corriere, Guardiola could make a few changes to the team for the final against Inter.

The newspaper report that, compared to the team that beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final, Guardiola is thinking of three changes.

Man City Star Bernardo Silva Could Be Dropped For Inter Showdown
Perhaps the most eye-catching change that Guardiola could make would be on the right flank.

Former Monaco midfielder and Portguese star Bernardo Silva has been a key player for City over the last few seasons. The 28-year-old certainly underlined this with his decisive brace against Real Madrid in a semifinal second leg.

Bernardo also started for City in the FA Cup final against their city rivals United.

According to the Corriere, however, Guardiola is seriously considering dropping Bernardo to the bench against Inter.

The newspaper reports that former Leicester City man Riyad Mahrez could take his place in the starting eleven.

Meanwhile, the newspaper report that goalkeeper Ederson will regain his starting place. Stefan Ortega had been the man to start in the FA Cup final against United.

2023.06.10 03:00 BasicallyADetective SA with Jacob?

I hate to even ask this, but once it popped into my head, I couldn’t get rid of the idea. I wonder if Jacob could have been coerced into sexually abusing Natalia.
My reasons for thinking this is possible:
  1. From the conversation we “overheard” with Michael, Jacob seems to feel responsible for more than we know. He appears to be severely traumatized from the entire experience with Natalia.
  2. Kristine tried to set up Natalia with Fred, so she isn’t above using Natalia in a sexual way.
  3. There are so many markers that indicate Natalia as a SA victim, I think it’s a given. The bleeding that Kristine called a period, the toileting accidents, even the lack of hygiene, all point to SA.
  4. Yet somehow I don’t see Michael as the abuser. Not that he’s above it, I just don’t see that as an interest for him. But, Kristine seems to be into using sex as a tool to hurt or manipulate others.
  5. Jacob admits that Kristine had him urinate on Natalia’s bed and possessions. That already has some sexual undertones. It’s a teen boy exposing himself in a girl’s room. Do we know if Natalia was made to watch? If so, that has crossed the line to SA right there.

2023.06.10 03:00 vk6flab [OC] Discussion: What is our legacy?

Our hobby has been around for over a century. The Wireless Institute of Australia, or WIA, is the oldest amateur association on the globe, having just marked 113 years since formation. The American Radio Relay League, or ARRL, is four years younger, founded in 1914.
I'm mentioning these two associations because they documented their journey through many of the years since foundation. The ARRL has published QST magazine since 1915 and the WIA has published Amateur Radio Magazine since 1933.
Before the Internet and the Digital Library of Amateur Radio and Communications, magazines like QST and AR Magazine were some ways of documenting and archiving achievements across our community.
If you find my professional biography online, you'll read: Experienced polyglot IT professional, software developer, trouble shooter, researcher, public speaker, educator, writer and publisher, founder and small business owner, podcaster, and licensed radio amateur.
It's fair to say that I've done a great many things across the technology arena. I have been writing software since before I was a teenager. At the time we used words like freeware and shareware, we copied lines of BASIC from the pages of the latest computer magazine, or recorded the TV teletext signal to access a programme. I recall typing pages of hexadecimal codes and running the result. Very satisfying to make sprites running across your screen.
In the decades since, technology has moved on. I've had a front-row seat to see that evolution happen. I've also witnessed one of the victims of the 1980's computer craze, the fundamental obliteration of its history. Much has been lost, either physically by destruction or disposal of boxes of magazines or the deterioration of audio cassette tapes once used to store software. I hold a Guinness World Record of Endurance Computing, set in 1989 during the Hobby Computer Club days, but you'll not find it anywhere other than a copy of the Dutch World Records that might be somewhere in my garage, or not. The twice-daily magazine we published over the three days of the event, Elephant News, was lost to time.
I'm mentioning this because this loss is not limited to the 1980's, it's happening here, today. As our hobby evolves into the software realm, we need to consider just how that legacy continues beyond our own lifetime. For example, we have lost access to the fundamentals of how exactly HAM DRM works, we've lost the source for VK Contest Logger to name another, and the collected designs by so-called antenna guru L.B. Cebik W4RNL (SK) are scattered around the Internet, but as far as I know, none of it is complete.
Fortunately we have tools at our disposal to keep our history. As I mentioned, the Digital Library of Amateur Radio and Communications or DLARC is an Internet Archive project to catalogue and store current and historic amateur media. In the 30 weeks since starting in October 2022, it now has 75,000 items and continues to grow under the expert stewardship of Program Manager, Special Collections, Kay, K6KJN.
The DLARC is not the only tool at our disposal and documentation isn't the only way we share technology in our hobby. More and more of what we do is based around software. We use programs to process signals, to generate and receive different modes, to create logs, to model antennas, to log propagation, and that list grows daily.
One of the most significant changes in software since my childhood is that of the introduction of Open Source Software in 1998. I've spoken about this several times before and I recently pointed at Not1MM as an example of an Open Source contest logger, but that is not the only project available.
If you visit and search for "amateur radio", you'll discover over a thousand projects showing a healthy ecosystem of activity from people like Daniel EA4GPZ who shared gr-satellites, a collection of telemetry decoders that support many different amateur satellites.
You'll find APRSdroid by Georg D01GL, which allows radio amateurs to view and report locations using the APRS network.
There's an Arduino based rotator interface by Anthony K3NG, an advanced ham radio logger called CQRLOG by Petr OK2CQR, a radio modem by Dan KF7IJB, remoteAudio by Tobias DH1TW, and the list goes on.
I must also point out that I'm only naming the person behind the repository because as is the whole point of Open Source software, anyone can contribute in different ways. You can make a copy of the source-code and write your own version, a so-called fork, or you can create trouble-tickets to explain a bug or problem, there's ways of contributing fixes and ideas and all of that can be done by anyone anywhere. Many of the projects I've just shared are a combination of years of effort by many different people.
And that is the point of this conversation. Amateur Radio is a collaborative affair. We learn and share from the experience of others. We document how we built a schematic, or an antenna, or managed to achieve some feat and share that with the rest of the community.
It's not limited to hobbyist projects either. I purchased my Analog Devices ADALM-Pluto SDR hardware specifically because it was Open Source and came with all manner of tools and code that I could tease apart, improve on and change to my own requirements.
As we make more and more use of technology in our hobby, we run the risk of repeating the mistakes of the 1980's if we don't start making our efforts public and accessible to the community at large.
Imagine what our hobby would look like if we stopped sharing our successes and failures.
So, next time you want to look at some software to use, a calculator to build, or a thing you've learnt, consider what a technology appropriate way to share that might be.
What tools do you use today and how many of them are Open Source? How much of what you do is accessible to others and what happens if you stop paying for the hosting fees on your website?

2023.06.10 03:00 Ok_Ear3757 Rough Day, CFI Training

I thought I'd wish everyone a happy Friday and I hope everyone is doing well! Been in CFI training for a full year now and thought I was getting close to the end. Was feeling confident, but today I got pulled through the ringer by an instructor. Regardless, just another one of those days in flight training that make you want to quit, but I'm looking forward to one of those days that make it worth it. Keep it up everyone! Making a post to try to bring people together, enjoy your weekend. (:
TLDR: Today sucked, tomorrow will be better, hope everyone is well.

2023.06.10 02:59 Such_Mangled_Limbs “Fear is every man’s portion.”

It’s a small obsession of mine to catalogue characters’ last line of dialogue in a show to see how or if the writers decided to give it weight, and for my money there is none better than EB Farnum’s final line in the regular series of Deadwood. It summarizes, underlines, and asks empathy for his cowardice, misery, and impotence while at once proving that he is himself an uncanny eye for the human condition, all encapsulated in the crown jewel of Farnumesque aphorisms. He is a cockroach, and knows it, and he will live—indeed thrive—in the muck of the thoroughfare for fucking ever, and you’d be the fool to laugh a the miracle of his immortality.
It’s five words making the fullness of a man like stars in a constellation.

2023.06.10 02:59 JellyfishMean3504 Low sex drive

I know it’s a sensitive subject but I need to know if the majority of ppl lose their sex drive in relation to Fibromyalgia? Or only when they are in a flare? Is it strongly related to the fatigue or just being in pain overall makes it difficult to feel good? I really hope I get some responses. I can google things but talking about it with real ppl (even anonymously online) is better. Also, if you could say your gender so I can try and decipher is that is also related. I am a female. Thanks for responding to a sensitive topic.

Just got the new MX Keys S in black. Everything feels good so far, feels like typing on my MacBook keyboard, but with better smart backlighting.
But I can’t understand why the green battery indicator is different color than on the MX Master 3S. It’s like an light olive color, while the MX Master is a bright green. OCD kicking in lol

Group recommendations
Since I've been on Reddit a whole day now... What are the best groups to be in for these cacti? I'm not saying anything is wrong with this one just wondering what people are most active in and if there are suggestions to look into. I'm going to be looking to sell from my collection through Reddit as well as shop. I like discussions of techniques etc, pictures. Im enjoying looking at something different than Facebook.

2023.06.10 02:59 andreyred Thinkware U1000 skips recordings

TLDR: I am really dissatisfied with the Thinkware U1000 and for anyone considering getting one, I would recommend against it for the following reason: It skips a few seconds between clips very often. This can lead to you missing key events.
I've had the Thinkware U1000 for about a 8 months now and TWICE it has missed key moments in incidents that I wanted to pull off the memory card. Fortunately, neither times it was an accident.
I'm using the U1000 with a 128gb Samsung Endurance card and have reformatted it more than once within the dashcam itself per recommendations from online forums.
The issue i've ran into more than once now is in the Continuous recording mode. Basically, the camera is supposed to record non-stop (when i'm driving) but I noticed that it skips a few seconds in between clips. I have clips that are 1 minute long, others that are 22 seconds long, some are 4 seconds, etc. and often times it will miss a few seconds between clips.
With my previous dashcam, Viofo A129, it was half the price but recordings were always in consistent 3 minute spans.
This morning I had someone blow past me in a construction zone and then they got pulled over so I went to grab the footage and of course, the full moment they blow past me was not captured because the camera skipped about ~4 seconds.

2023.06.10 02:59 East_Exercise3654 Indicud and how it played into the conclusion of MOTM

At first glance some of y’all gonna be on my ass sayin “b-b-but indicud is its own thing and not apart of MOTM” which technically speaking yes it’s not a mainline installment HOWEVER cudi went on many times saying that not just indicud but SF aswell are both bridges for MOTM3, he even said in an interview years later reinstating this.
Now with this knowledge of indicud and SF being sorts of “interludes”, we know that the album is after when kid cudi was at an all time low at the end of MOTM2, when he gives up and let’s himself be lost to Mr Rager. Indicud starts with “The Resurrection of Scott Mescudi” which brings his humanity back symbolically not being the pop icon Kid Cudi, but back to who he truly is… Scott
The album goes on as he accepts the good and bad about him with tracks like “Just what I am” but (and the whole point of this post) we see this perfectly clear with tracks like “Solo Dolo pt2” which was a low point in every album these songs are on WXCEPT this one… Why?
Kid cudi learns in this album that it’s not that “I don’t truly deserve anyone” but more like “I don’t truly NEED anyone” we get songs like “Mad Solar” where instead of the depressing symbolism of being the“Man on the moon” (IE: being so alienated from everyone else) he accepts that he should be doing his own thing even more than ever and not caring about other shit. So indicud ends with “Flight of the moon man” which symbolizes him completing his “resurrection”
Now how does this play into MOTM3?? In the beginning of the album in “Tequila Shots” we hear him say “this time I’m ready for it” which after we know that indicuds lesson, this is obvious why… but that’s not even the main thing…when Mr Rager is becoming present in the second act, the once overpowering Mr Rager who in his title track made Cudi seem worthless without him, was now speaking like he was cudi…? We hear cracks in the mr Rager persona and see that cudi has embraced him this time, not succumbed. We see when the album gets to it’s all time low with “Solo Dolo pt3” where yes it’s very depressing but after this low comes, we enter the next act called “Heart of Rose Gold” where he now has overcomed the worse he could experienced, and now he can heal.

2023.06.10 02:58 Mooxie_does_stuff Maxwell’s confidence arc Book 1: Memories (Entry 3 of 4- Intellect)

OOC (Pre): Summary/Potential warning, Maxwell gets bullied for being wrong on a question in class.
Maxwell was idly working on the concept of an invention today. He sat there, perched up at the top of Half-Blood hill, humming to himself as he scribbled the concept in his journal. He had begun to feel better, just slightly. He didn’t know if his theory was right, but he decided to use this whole situation that was happening to coax himself that the end result of this would be him meeting his mother. Ah, yes. Techne.
Yeah, it was a bit of an odd mindset, but it prevented him from becoming sadder and more scared than he already was. He sat there, humming idly to himself. He stared off into the distance. However, he kept drawing. It was an odd skill he had. He could look away from his journal, yet still draw like all of his attention was focused on it. Eventually, his pencil stopped. He looked back at his journal.
“I… that isn’t what I was drawing…” He thought to himself. It was true. He was coming up with the idea for a new type of badge he was going to create, but… that wasn’t the design for a badge. Instead, it was… him. In class…
He studied the papers in front of him. They all looked so familiar… that was probably him in about… oh, he couldn’t really tell- 5th grade? Maybe… it didn’t matter. He knew that class though. He didn’t have to think of it in his head. It was his German class. Err… his Deutsch Klasse. Ah… another one of those memories. Oh, well. He knew that these were building up to something. They had to be. So, he drew a deep breath, and concentrated on the drawings in his journal, his brain naturally filling in the sounds and dialogue.
First came his teacher’s voice. He had absolutely nothing against her, actually. She was… well, for lack of a better term in this case… Wunderbar. She never yelled at him. She always stood up for him. In this case, she did just that. However, first things were first. She asked him a question- it was a simple one now that he thought of it. She had asked him to translate a sentence for him. Her words echoed in his head.
“Maxwell, willst du einen keks haben?”
In hindsight, the answer was obvious. Yes, he would’ve loved a cookie. He couldn’t really decide in terms of type of cookie, but… eh. Either way. This was when he was first really learning German, so he didn’t understand that 'Willst' meant “Want to”, and not “Will”. Needless to say, he was confused. His dad barely ever bought cookies, let alone gave Maxwell one for no apparent reason. He shrugged, and responded to her.
“Well… I don’t know. My dad doesn’t… buy or bake cookies. I don't know if I will have one.”
Laughter erupted from the class. They were laughing at him for a few reasons. The primary one was the fact that he misunderstood the question. He heard their jeering laughter and snarky comments.
“What an idiot! Even I knew that one! Hey, everyone, Flammia is a moron!”
Back in reality, Maxwell’s blood was boiling. Gods, he hated those kids. He didn’t care what they went through. To him, it was no excuse to bully him over a common misunderstanding. However, he remembered that, during that moment, he wasn’t angry. He was just sad. It felt like he had let his teacher down. He had looked up at her, silently apologizing for what he said. Apologizing for being incorrect.
Instead of berating him or being upset, his teacher gave him a reassuring smile. She turned her attention to the rest of his class.
“How dare all of you laugh at him? He’s trying his best to answer the question I gave him, and that is a very common misunderstanding! Shame on all of you for laughing at such a wonderful student.”
Her attention turned back to him.
“It’s okay, Maxwell. Let’s turn this into a learning experience, hmm?”
The vision in his head faded. He was back in reality. Sweet, sweet reality. He smiled down at the journal pages. If there was one thing he missed from that school, it was that teacher of his. He stared back off into the distance, towards the camp. The embarrassment from that moment never truly faded from him. Ever since that day, he didn’t say anything else when someone asked him a question. It was probably better that way. He would never be wrong if he didn’t say anything. The breeze blowing up against him, he muttered to himself.
“...Ich will stärker bekomme. Nein… Ich WERDE stärker bekomme.”
OOC (Post): As with every time I write in it, I (feel the) need to say that I am not a native German speaker! I understand it, sure! But I’m not fluent in it. I get things wrong! However, I always try to get the basic ideas across. For those who couldn’t read it/understand what I was trying to get at:
