2023.03.22 07:48 AfternoonFar8525 I have not thought of a title, maybe the loss of you?

I release my hold, for what it’s worth. Whatever this was, that felt so deeply and unwavering, and sound and steady, and I had hoped was returned.
What joy! What I felt on my side of the fence that did not traverse the gap between.
In the better words of Dolly Parton, I wish you joy and happiness. But most of all, I wish you love.
To feel this feeling, as much as it hurts now because it is not returned, it is worth feeling. I will never forget loving you.

2023.03.22 07:47 BurntSchmidt Don't Look Behind You, But...

It was a cold winter's night in Freeport. My husband and I were seated watching TV, he in his chair and I on the couch. Across the room (the length of our single-story ranch house) there is a single window looking directly into the living room from the yard. I noticed the figure approaching and subsequently ducking down sp that only the crest of his head down to his eyes were visible.
My heart began to race, and my blood pressure had catapulted so quickly that my head began to throb and pound, and, despite the internal hurricane taking place, I at first pretended not to notice. I kept my eyes fixed on my husband, chatting and laughing as if nothing horrifying was taking place. I kept the intruder in birds eye view for several minutes, hoping he'd just up and leave, taking no interest in our ordinary, sedate state of affairs. Let me also mention that it was six degrees outside.
I continued on with just the same frame of attitude as the time I was robbed at gunpoint years before. I learned that I have a unique ability to remain externally calm despite the fire in my veins and the quaking of my being. Outside, I'm ice, but inside, I'm a tree shaken of all its leaves. Verily, after about ten minutes (I swear that every time I looked at the blank face and noticed it was still there, peeping in a polar vortex, I nearly screamed) I made a decision. Inside, I was absolutely breaking. Each moment that I turned to the TV and then shifted back, my heart skipped several beats.
Finally, with my face turned away, I said to my husband through my teeth, "honey, do NOT look and do NOT react, but there is a man looking at us through the window right now. Don't look!". Despite my urging, his impulse got the better of him. The moment he rose from the chair and turned, the peeper had leaped from view. I told him we needed to call 911. However, before I could even turn on my screen, the knob to the front door began to tremble and shake convulsively.
My husband commanded me to run to our room, a command which he followed as well, which, in such a tumultuous moment, was our only defense - because by then, the intruder was throwing himself against the front door. The jamb and hinged were audibly cracking, all of the items on the glass living room refectory table had begun to tremble and clatter, and the walls all reverberated thunderously.
With all of my strength (my husband had fused disks in his back, so he was totally incapable of assisting), I grasped the bureau by the legs and with all my puny might dragged the son of a bitch across the floor and finally, in one final throe of desperation, pushed it against the door. In the midst of this midnight whirlwind, the front door had been kicked opened and the footsteps, incredibly heavy ones, had tramped down the hallway as if the footfalls were 200 pound blocks of ice, though it hadnt sunk in until I, fresh out of breath and flushed in icy hot sweat, had tumbled backwards onto the bed.
"I have a gun!", my husband shouted repeatedly as the intruder began throwing his weight against the door. Assuming he might also be armed, we slunk to the far side of the bed and ducked down. I phoned 911, and they assured me the police were currently in pursuit. It's an incredibly small, derelict steel town in Western Pennsylvania, hollowed out by the terminus of the steel boom. The police arrived imminently, but in between the call, the threats, and the arrival of PD, I noticed something strange. Something that truly chilled me to the bone.
At some point, the intruder halted, and in a shrill, gravelly tone that sounded devilishly feminine, shouted a few simple words, which had been repeated several times - "this isn't yyyyyourrrrr house! This is NOT YOURRRR HOUSE!". He pounded furiously on the door as he shouted (if you could even call it 'shouting') these words with an almost compendious conviction. My husband, who at the time had been battling bronchitis, was gasping for elusive gulps of air with such severity, I was afraid he might faint or, worse, succumb to asphyxiation.
In a flash, the police had arrived. The thousand pound footsteps retreated, but not before a throng of screams rang out from the front doorway. Shots were fired, and voices had gone frenetic. I removed the dresser and ran out. An officer was splayed out on his back half in and half out of the house and was screaming, screaming with every fiber of his soul. All I could see was blood everywhere. Smeared on the walls, even.
"Don't come out here!", shouted an officer as he called for a medic. But the image was burned in. The first-responding officer had been slashed from temple to chin, left to right, and was screaming and rolling chaotically, as if he was being immolated and had desperately taken to putting himself out. That haunting vision has only grown stronger and with greater clarity since. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't see the flashing terror in his eyes and the gaping of his mouth as he cried out, "I'm blind! Gary, I'm fucking blind! I'll never see her again! Diane! Diane!"
We watched out the window of the bedroom as flashlights played upon the black, frozen woods like strobes. Seeing them spread so broadly only made my heart sink, and soon after, an officer came calling.
"Do you have a friend or relative you could stay with tonight?".
This being a most disheartening sign, we went and stayed with our son and daughter - in - law for two nights until we could fortify the house with new doors, triple paned windows and a full alarm system. For weeks, months, even, we walked around on our toes while continuously throwing glances over our shoulders everywhere we went, but what was most disconcerting was that we felt more vulnerable locked behind closed doors.
To this day, the intruder hasn't been found. I looked into previous owners of our house. We had been living there 18 years by then, and the scent on the trail of discovery was nonexistent. I still don't know what about our house "isn't" ours, and I'm not sure I want to know. This occurred in 2020, just as COVID had begun to scorch the earth. One thing I know intuitively, however, is that no matter how much time passes, unless I grow a third eye on the back of my head, I will never be comfortable again.

I am wanting to know if there's expanded options to moving facial features around on head models. I'm talking modded Skyrim and Dark Souls character creation level adjustments. Main examples being eye distance, eye shape, Mouth shape/expression, and jaw definition. I get that the update and feature is relatively new so there might not be said options or subtools made yet
If this sort of thing is done in the modeler I would appreciate it if I am given link to some tutorials that'd help with going through that sort of process.

2023.03.22 07:46 ThatManSean14 WW Rebirth Deluxe Editions Question

Does anyone know if the first two Rebirth Deluxe Editions present the story in the same way the trade paperbacks do?
During his Rebirth run, Rucka alternated back and forth between arcs from issue to issue that eventually came together. The odd number issues from 1-11 told one story and became “The Lies” tpb and then the even number issues from 2-12 told a different story and became “Year One.” Similar thing happened with “The Truth” and “Godwatch” for the second half of the run.
Since the first Deluxe Edition collects like issues 1-14 I think, I was wondering if it just tells it’s stories straight through or if it has the issues in numerical order.

2023.03.22 07:45 Awebs91 Young adult novel read between 1997-2003, primarily about romance or friendship with sad ending.

I am struggling to remember too many details about this book, aside from the chat room/messenger aspect of the protagonists relationship, an older brothefriend that would drive the protagonist around (I can recall a description of someone getting into a car but being too tall for the seating and having their knees bunched up). I also recall it having a sad ending, which is why I would like to re-visit it and see how it reads as an adult.
Another thing I recall is the title (or artwork on the cover) having "JK, I love you" or a phrase extremely close to that, perhaps a change in word order or separation between the J and K being a slash or period...unfortunately, whenever I search for this I run into JK Rowling repeatedly.
I am suspecting it may not be something too well known, and as I'm in Canada and originally checked it out from the elementary school library maybe it was from a smaller publisher and not distributed widely.

2023.03.22 07:45 douglassdimmadome Am I crazy?

Let me preface with i have been dealing with a lot of mental issues recently such as (anxiety, depression, PTSD, and as of today bipolar disorder) and writing this down really helps me process my emotions and think about how I could’ve been better.
The story begins when I [M23] matched with some cute girl wearing elf ears on bumble [F20]. At the time she seemed fun and different and I actually thought I might like her, which was rare because practically every other girl I’ve matched with I never really had too much interest in and was only talking to to pass the time or maybe get lucky. We talked for a little and I felt like we really hit it off. Eventually i got her number / snapchat and we proceeded to talk and try to plan a date. This went on for about month but my crippling anxiety kept getting in the way and I always chickened out because of the fear of being rejected or even worse the fear of falling in love. I knew that i would be moving in the near future and didn’t want to get attached to someone that would be living 300 miles away.
I then moved and went on with my life but still sometimes snap chatted or texted her on occasion. Eventually she started showing more and more interest and over the next 2 months our conversations got longer and more personal. We started chatting on discord and holy shit I don’t know if i was just desperate and craved the attention from a woman or what but she made me feel special. Over the next couple of weeks we played started playing some video games together such as Call of duty and Sims, where we were decorating a house together. It was so strange because she would show me all this attention give off all of the signs that she was interested and then go spotty for an evening or a couple days and leave me on delivered. I get it people have real lives and I know women can play games sometimes but I kind of thought she liked me enough to be like “hey can’t talk tonight” or “I’m busy”. So there I am falling head over heels for this girl frantically waiting the next text and getting emotionally attached too when I still wasn’t sure if the feelings were reciprocated.
Eventually the time comes and I ask if she wants to do something over the weekend and that I was going to drive the distance to take her out on a date. She agreed and said she’s free on Sunday so I grew some balls and actually committed and drove down that Friday afternoon to hangout with a friend. I asked her if she was busy that night and she responded with no because she was sore from the gym which I thought was a lame excuse and got me overthinking. Saturday comes and she’s not answering at all and I have a mental breakdown and drive home that night. During my drive she answers but I was already halfway and told my friend who’s couch I was sleeping on that I was going home, so I made up an excuse and said there was a family emergency and needed to go home.
The next week was even better was talked more and I told her that I coming back specifically so I can finally meet her and take her on a date. I asked when she was free and she said Saturday and Sunday so I was like cool I’ll be there, booked a hotel room with some credit card points and on drove down there on that Friday night. Saturday morning rolls around and I’m super nervous we talk and she asks to postpone the date a couple hours I immediately thought the worst and was already considering going back home.
BUT IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED, we met up at a local mall, talked on a bench for a while, then went and got smoothies, then continued talking in my car for another several hours before she had to go to some previous commitment. She was pretty open about previous traumas so I really wanted to respect her boundaries and not try anything that would come off as too aggressive or like all I wanted was sex because it wasn’t. Right before she got out of my car she said “can I kiss you” and I literally lunged at her from my seat to hers kissing her multiple times before she left and I stayed in my car smiling for a good 10 minutes thinking well I guess the date went well.
I went back to my hotel room and eventually texted her that I had a great time and I want to see her again tomorrow. she responds with the worst thing imaginable “I’m drunk can’t hangout with you tomorrow.” So there I was I just went from the happiest I’ve been in years to thinking well I blew it and I’m never going to see this girl again in my life. So I did what any desperate man would do and I told her exactly how I felt, saying that she was pretty much my favorite person that I talked to and legitimately just wanted to make her happy. and she responded with that’s cute but I like you too, but then said she wanted to see me again, then wouldn’t answer again. This was not very reassuring so I went kind of manic and drove home listening to angry music wishing I was dead. I actually got pulled over and the cop asked if I was ok because I was going 25 over in the pouring rain.
Monday comes and we go back to our normal routine of talking and playing video games together, Tuesday she ignored me for most of the day, and Wednesday back to normal. So on Thursday I told her how I felt again and she said I was being insecure. I apologized and was like ok not gonna be so obsessive because it’s not attractive and makes me seems needy. But fuck all I wanted in this world was her and she knew that. I actually sent her a message on Snapchat pretty much saying that exact thing and she ignored it for 20 hours……
At this point I was sure she didn’t have feelings back so I blocked her on snap so I could have some peace of mind and get out of purgatory. We then got into an argument over text and started name calling each other and being very personal with our attacks. I tried to apologize later that night but she was not having it at all and was still very angry with me understandably since I blocked her first and yet needed closure. The next day I said some things that I really really really wish I could take back but said it anyways and then blocked her on text so we had no more ways to communicate. I then sat on it for a couple of days and apologized again and pretty much fessed up to all my wrong doings and admitted that I acted out and that I had mental illnesses, but know I will not get a response and that it is time to move on. I have so many questions though since I’m still confused, upset, and sad.
Based on all that, Did I get too attached to someone I barely knew? Does it seem like she was ever actually interested in me or was she just leading me on? How can I prevent this from happening again? Would you give me another chance if you were her?

2023.03.22 07:45 thespuzz Here’s the fixed income portfolio that can tackle rising interest rates

Investing in fixed income has never been so tricky. After a period of muted returns, fixed income investors are offered higher bond yields, but investors are faced with a fundamental question—is it the right time to build a fixed-income portfolio? What if bond yields go up further?
A key element we need to understand regarding the fixed income market is–we are nearing the peak interest rates in the economy. Let us understand this in a systematic way:
Peaking of interest rates
The Covid-19 pandemic changed the investment landscape a lot in a brief period of time. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) cut the repo rate by 140 basis points between February and May 2020 to stimulate the economy. These cuts pulled down bond yields. Interest rates remained unattractive. Thereafter, supply side bottlenecks aggravated by geopolitical issues resulted in inflationary pressures across the globe. Central banks across the globe focused on reining-in inflation. Inflation shot higher than the upward acceptable limit of 6%. To deal with this, the RBI increased repo rate by 250 basis points over a period of time.
Repo rate, which touched 4% in April 2020, rose significantly by 250 basis points to 6.50%. However, now, things are changing slowly. In recent weeks, inflation has come down in most parts of the world. There is an expectation of an economic slowdown as well. The Indian economy may not go through a recessionary phase like its developed market counterparts. But it may see some slowdown in some segments of the economy.
Generally speaking, the central bank’s monetary policy has twin objectives—to target inflation as well as stimulate economic growth. Central banks generally walk a tightrope as they have to maintain balance. Lowering interest rates may lead to higher growth and higher inflation. And increasing interest rates may lead to lower inflation and lower economic growth. In this context, to ensure growth, the RBI may not increase interest rates for some time. Most market experts point out that we are nearing a rate hike cycle. Though the RBI has not officially changed its stance to neutral from ‘withdrawing of accommodation’, bond yields in the secondary market indicate that we are nearing the peak interest rates in the economy.

Staying flat
Now, let us understand the other side of the story. There may be a few investors who may be worried about interim volatility. A pertinent question which may be weighing on their minds may be: What if interest rates go up further? And this is a valid concern. It is important to understand that no one can spot a peak of bond yields. It is possible only in hindsight. There is a possibility of a rate hike in the next monetary policy. A sudden spike in inflation such as the one reported for January 2023 may rattle bond markets. In tandem, yields too may move up across maturities. But the broad trend indicates that we are nearing the peak.
The RBI may keep the repo rate unchanged for longer than expected. There may be bouts of volatility. Smart investors should capitalize on such volatile phases and spikes in yields by investing in well-managed portfolios. Such a staggered approach works in favour of investors as it will help them average out their yield on the portfolio. Each time yield spikes, there will be some mark-to-market losses on a fixed income’s portfolio. But they are worth taking. Investors staying out of the market hoping for volatility to go down are exposed to the risk of investing too late. Such investors may walk in only after yields go down considerably, which may not be remunerative at all.
What you can do?
In the context of these facts, fixed income investors will have to analyse current bond yields. Current yields are attractive and as inflation is expected to come down, investors too should pocket positive real returns (nominal return minus inflation) on their bond investments.
Investors can consider locking in their money at this juncture. Current yields-to-maturities of bond fund portfolios indicate attractive accrual income for conservative investors. It makes sense to remain invested and stagger incremental investments in bond funds to pocket accrual income and further benefit from any downward movement in bond yields. Importantly, investors should ideally select schemes with duration that matches their holding period.

2023.03.22 07:45 paranoidandnoid I like my idealized version of people much more

I try to force my interest in people and that is something that just can’t be forced. I have to protect this idea in my head that love is real and I’m capable of feeling it. I have to constantly face the fact that I haven’t loved people when they show me they aren’t really all that. I prefer when people keep their distance from me because it makes me believe love is real. If I’m around someone long enough usually the case is that they’re like any other person. They’re not better than me somehow like I thought they were. If I see them at the same level as me I don’t think I can love them.
I’m in love with this person who doesn’t say embarrassing things, doesn’t smell bad, doesn’t dress bad, etc. This person doesn’t exist and that makes me realize I don’t even know what love is. It’s easy to say I should find the good in people but saying and feeling are two different things. I can’t help it sometimes what my subjective feeling on something is. Of course I want to be a good person but wanting isn’t enough. Clearly forcing myself to love people isn’t the way to go. It just leaves me with all this boiled up frustration that one day explodes on the person.

2023.03.22 07:45 koneko-sama-sensei Magnet-electromagnetic actuator: new idea for artificial muscles

Magnet-electromagnetic actuator: new idea for artificial muscles
It occurred to me when i thought about how two magnets can hold a certain weight due to magnetism, for example if one is fixed on the ceiling and a weight is placed on the other, when they are brought closer by opposite poles, they will attract each other, and if the load is not too much they will hold it in the air. That's 'free' loading force due to magnetism, which needs no power, no heat, no anything, it just requires the magnets to come together enough to stick. So if you could make the muscles that take advantage of this principle, it would be pretty energy efficient for light loads
So I thought, is there a way to manipulate the magnetic field of a permanent magnet in a way that allows these movements? I searched the internet and found a video on YouTube of an experiment where an electromagnet is used to cancel and increase the magnetic field of a magnet. There I saw it clearly, an actuator made up of two magnets, both with an electromagnet around them to alter their magnetic field; cancel or invert it for relaxation, and increase it for contraction. The magnets would be arranged in such a way that it would be possible to have them in two states, separated at a sufficient distance so as not to attract each other, and united where the magnetism would keep them that way. Could be used, only the magnetic force, just needing energy when changing the state of the actuators, or also add the electromagnetic force, directing a constant current to the electromagnets.

Movement control would be given based on the number of actuators, a muscle with two actuators would have three states: assuming that the maximum range of movement of the articulation would be 180 degrees, 1. both relaxed (0), 2. one contracted and the other relaxed (90), 3. both contracted (180). The greater the number of actuators, the greater the precision in the movement.
So far I have developed the basic part of this idea, have thought more things, but first would need to experiment and check if the actuators work. For now, I'm just presenting it, what do you think?

I am a noob, I bought my first electric drum kit less then 2 weeks ago and I’ve been using YouTube as my teacher. Everything seemed to be going well until I realized I was holding the drum sticks wrong. I spent the last two days trying to figure out my grip by watching many different YouTube videos but I still don’t know exactly what to do.
Im trying to use a middle finger fulcrum. The problem is that although I can get some rebound, the gap between my thumb and index finger keep closing no matter what I do. How do I fix this and how do I finally master grip so I can start learning the drums again??

2023.03.22 07:44 dradarshjha The Beneficial and Complicated Ecology Within Us, the Gut Microbiota

The Beneficial and Complicated Ecology Within Us, the Gut Microbiota

Humans host a diverse community of bacteria known as gut microbiota or gut flora. These microbes have essential roles in digestion, metabolism, immune system development, and illness prevention, among other critical physiological functions. The gut microbiota contains billions of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, viruses, and more.
Numerous microbial communities, each with unique make-up and metabolic specializations, populate the human gastrointestinal tract. Different variables, including age, nutrition, genetics, and environment, all impact the microbiota and cause it to change uniquely. Some bacteria are helpful, but they can become harmful when they multiply too rapidly or infect nearby tissues. Several illnesses and conditions, such as autoimmune illness, inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, and mental illness, have been associated with changes in the gut microbiota.
Dr. Adarsh Jha believes that a healthy microbiome in the digestive tract is essential for proper immune system development and maintenance. Antibodies and cytokines are produced through the cooperation of gut bacteria and immune cells, as revealed in several studies. These immune chemicals aid in warding off disease-causing microbes and repairing damaged tissue. The intestinal barrier, which stops harmful compounds from entering circulation, is partly maintained by the gut microbiota.
Metabolic regulation also involves the gut microbiome. A few bacterial species secrete digestive enzymes that help us digest otherwise indigestible substances like complex polysaccharides. Intestinal cells rely on these SCFAs for energy, and this process stimulates their creation. Evidence shows that SCFAs have anti-inflammatory characteristics that can help lower the risk of metabolic diseases, including obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Scientists have found evidence that the bacteria in the stomach may affect mental health. The gut-brain axis connects the brain and digestive tract via neurological, hormonal, and immune mechanisms for two-way communication. Depression, anxiety, and autism spectrum disorder have all been related to alterations in the gut flora.
The gut microbiota is an intricate and ever-changing ecology that plays a significant role in human health and illness. Keep your gut flora in good shape to keep yourself healthy and disease-free. This may be accomplished by eating nutritious foods, being physically active regularly, and only using antibiotics when required. The intricate relationships between gut flora and human health necessitate more study.

2023.03.22 07:44 heightsinstitute Best Interior Designer, Owner and Contractor Relationship

Best Interior Designer, Owner and Contractor Relationship
The relationship between the parties involved in a construction project can be complex, and it is important to understand the roles and responsibilities of each party. Generally, the Designer, Contractor, and Owner are the primary parties involved in the construction process. The Designer is responsible for designing the work, preparing detailed drawings, coordinating and supervising the work at the site. During the design phase, the Designer serves as an objective professional, endeavoring to carry out the Owner's wishes. In the construction phase, the Designer acts in a dual capacity, serving as the Owner's professional advisor and agent, and an impartial interpreter of the Contract Documents upon written request of the Owner or Contractor.
It is important to note that the Interior Designer signs a Contract with the Owner, the Owner-Interior Designer Agreement. The Contractor signs a Contract with the Owner, the Owner-Contractor Agreement. There is no contractual obligation between the Designer and Contractor. However, the Designer is responsible for administering the Contract between the Owner and Contractor as a result of their contractual agreement with the Owner.
The Designer's responsibilities include interpreting and enforcing the provisions of the Contract Documents upon the written request of either the Owner or Contractor. They are responsible for determining if the Contractor's work is in accordance with the Contract Documents and rejecting defective work. However, the Designer's authority does not extend to directing construction techniques, the time in which the work is done, safety procedures, or sequences of construction. They are not responsible for construction means, methods, techniques, or safety precautions for the project. Nor are they responsible for the acts or omissions of the Contractor. The Contractor is responsible for construction means, methods, and techniques unless the Contract Documents give other instructions concerning these matters.
In addition to their responsibilities as outlined in the Owner-Interior Designer Agreement, the Designer is also the Owner's professional adviser throughout the project. The Owner furnishes the relevant information concerning program requirements and the site, pays for the cost of professional services, and pays for the cost of the work associated with the development of the project.

Changes In The Work
The construction process involves several parties, including the Designer, Contractor, and Owner. The Designer is responsible for designing the work, preparing detailed drawings, and supervising the work at the site. The Contractor executes the project in accordance with the drawings, and the Owner provides relevant information about the program requirements and site. Throughout the project, the Interior Designer serves as the Owner's professional adviser, helping to carry out the Owner's wishes during the design phase and administering the Contract between the Owner and Contractor during the construction phase.
It is important to note that the Interior Designer signs a Contract with the Owner, outlining their duties, including the administration of the Contract between the Owner and Contractor. The Designer has the responsibility to interpret and enforce the provisions of the Contract Documents and determine if the Contractor's work is in accordance with the Contract Documents. However, the Designer is not responsible for directing construction techniques, safety procedures, or sequences of construction.
Change orders may occur during the project, which are written instructions to the Contractor authorizing a change in the scope of the work, Contract sum or Contract time. These orders are based upon agreement among the Owner, Interior Designer, and Contractor. The Designer must obtain prior permission from the Client before issuing Construction Change authorization to the Contractor and must not make changes without consulting the Client.

Fire safety
Fire safety is a critical concern in interior design, and designers must take appropriate measures to prevent fires. Overloading electrical wiring and lavish furnishings are common causes of fires. Lack of maintenance of electrical wiring, blocked fire exits, and defunct fire extinguishers also contribute to unsafe building interiors. Interior Designers should educate their clients on the necessity of automatic fire detection alarm systems.
During a fire, heat produces expansion and contraction of the affected material, leading to serious damage to the structure. Therefore, Interior Designers must pay close attention to door frames and shutters to ensure they meet fire safety standards. Fire-resistant doors must automatically close by floor spring or overhead door closer, and door frames should be secured to the wall by holdfast and not by screws, which can give way during a fire. A fire escape staircase door should not have any locking device from inside or outside to enable easy escape during a fire.
False ceilings
False ceilings are a common feature in buildings and can be made from a variety of materials. However, wood framing and wood panelling should be avoided as they can pose a fire hazard. Instead, aluminium sections are preferred, particularly in public buildings.
AC ducts
To prevent the spread of fire in AC ducts, fire dampers should be installed. These prevent the spread of fire by closing off the ducts.
Water sprinkler systems
Water sprinkler systems are another effective way to control fires. Pipes connected to water mains in the ceiling are provided with melting bulbs at the junctions. If a fire breaks out, the bulbs will melt, and the automatic sprinkler system will activate to control the fire.
Automatic smoke detectors
Automatic smoke detectors are essential in detecting fires. As soon as the temperature rises, the detector will sound an alarm. In some buildings, detectors are set up to notify the fire department automatically.
Fire Alarm System
A fire alarm system is a common method of alerting people in the event of a fire. The alarm is usually set up to sound on a specific floor or throughout the entire building.
Emergency lighting
Emergency lighting is another important safety feature in the event of a fire. It is connected to a separate generator and smoke detection system, ensuring that it will still work even if the power goes out.
Fire Detection System
A fire detection system is a network of thermostats or other approved sensors that can detect the presence of fire and automatically signal an alarm.
Smoke Detector
Smoke detectors are electronic fire alarms that are activated by the presence of smoke.
Fire Extinguisher
Fire extinguishers are portable devices used to put out small fires by ejecting pressurized water or special chemicals. They are classified based on the type of fire they can extinguish.
Sprinkler System
Sprinkler systems are apparatuses that can automatically extinguish fires in a building. They consist of a network of pipes installed in or below the ceiling, connected to a suitable water supply, and supplied with valves or sprinkler heads that open automatically at a certain temperature.
Wet-Pipe System
Wet-pipe systems are sprinkler systems containing water at sufficient pressure to provide an immediate, continuous discharge through sprinkler heads that open automatically in the event of fire.
Wet-Pipe System
Dry-pipe systems are sprinkler systems containing pressurized air that is released when a sprinkler head opens in the event of fire, allowing water to flow through the piping and out the opened nozzle.
Fire pumps provide the required water pressure in a standing pipe or sprinkler system when pressure in the system drops below a pre-selected value.
Finally, hydrants are upright pipes with one or more nozzles or spouts for drawing water from a main, especially for fighting fires.
It is important to consider all these fire safety features when designing building interiors to ensure the safety of occupants in the event of a fire.

Class 'A' Fire
A Class 'A' fire involves ordinary combustible materials such as wood, paper, and cloth. In these fires, the cooling effect of water is crucial for extinguishing the flames.
Class 'B' Fire
A Class 'B' fire involves flammable liquids such as gasoline, oil, and grease. These fires require the exclusion of air and inhibition of the release of combustible vapors to be extinguished.
Class 'C' Fire
A Class 'C' fire involves live electrical equipment, which requires a non-conducting extinguishing medium to be used.
Class 'D' Fire
A Class 'D' fire involves certain combustible metals such as magnesium or sodium. To extinguish these fires, a non-reactive, heat-absorbing extinguishing medium is required.
Fire Separation
Fire separation refers to any floor, wall, or roof-ceiling construction that has the required fire-resistance rating to confine the spread of fire.
Fire Wall
A fire wall is a wall that has the fire resistance rating to prevent the spread of fire from one part of a building to another. It extends from the foundation to a parapet above the roof and has all openings restricted to a certain percentage of the wall length. The wall is also protected by a self-closing or automatic-closing fire assembly.
Fire Door
A fire door assembly includes all required hardware, anchorage, frames, and sills, and has the required fire-resistance rating for its location and use.
Fire Damper
A fire damper automatically closes an air duct in the event of a fire to restrict the passage of fire and smoke. It is required where a duct penetrates a fire wall, fire-rated shaft, or other fire separation.

2023.03.22 07:44 ClearCounter Malazan Book of The Fallen Analysis and Reactions - House of Chains - Chapters 5-11


Welcome or welcome back! I have decided to tackle the Malazan Book of The Fallen series. Because I think veteran readers will enjoy it, I will write down my reactions and speculations as I move along.
NOTE If I pose questions, I am just sharing the questions I'm thinking in real time at X scene or book. I don't actually wish for commenters to answer them for me unless it is an extreme circumstances (Mixing up characters, misremembering events in previous scenes.)
Gardens of the Moon Deadhouse Gates Memories of Ice House of Chains Prologue - Chapter 4
Wowee, to make up for basically only being with Karsa in the first section, we jump around A LOT in the second one. If I forget to hit a character or event or skip it, remember to please nudge me in the comments so we can talk about it!

Tavore Paran

There isn't much to talk about here because we don't get a lot of reactions out of her, even when Ganoes was revealed to be not a traitor, but also dead, making some of Tavore's questionable actions ultimately unnecessary. I like the way she handled her Fist's at her briefing, giving her orders then dismissing them when they might seek to undermine her, but it also worries me because Fiddler criticized his company commander for refusing to hear his sergeants' thoughts. There seemed to be a bit of a mirroring between the Lieutenant and the Adjunct, both nobleborn untested commanders dismissing their veteran subordinates contributions.
We do see that she is worried about Felisin, so I'm giving her a tentative pass on the whole execute your mother and send your sister to a prison-camp thing.

The Fists

Gamet seems to be suffering from an inferiority complex and/or is being ill used by Tavore, being treated like a household guard captain still, despite being named a Fist. He has a bit of a good moment when he accuses Blistig of orchestrating the omen, then backtracks when he hears Blistig's response.
Blistig is broken from witnessing the end of the Chain of Dogs and his faith in his superiors is probably cracked. He might be a problem.
Tene Baralta - the Red Blades commander, now Fist, seems to be basically the only grounded Fist here, he just wants to get out there and prosecute the war, though in the previous books, Red Blades were acting like raging psychopaths, so he might be a problem too.


Fiddler is back and he is coming off better than I remember him being in Deadhouse.
He is now basically the Whiskeyjack for a whole new squad of Malazans and he is working hard behind the scenes to make sure the Adjunct Tavore is successful. He has decent moments with everyone, gelling well with all the soldiers.
The best moment was probably when he and Cuttle (an old sapper friend) "drew a line in the sand" and got the recruit-army in formation by blowing up munitions in their faces. Paraphrased from Cuttle "WE ARE GOING TO DO THIS RIGHT OR PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DIE". Lol
OH and its hinted that if Fidder (or any Bridgeburner) makes it back to Raraku, the dead Bridgeburners will play a role in whatever Ganoes Paran is doing now.

The Quest Storylines

This is basically what I'm calling many of the plot elements introduced in this section. They are
Lostara Yil + Pearl : Quest to find Felisin. Pearl gets credit for digging up the Talon, Lostara is being dragged along for the ride.
Kalam Mekhar : Quest to kill Korbolo Dom and (Reloe)? Cotillion has him do it and he accepts because his wife is mad at him. (He meets the Malazans that escorted Karsa most of the way to Otataral Island, and in the time honored tradition of Malazans, they murdered their officers.)
Apsalar + Crokus/Cutter : Quest to (secure?) the Throne of Shadow, located on a moving island located in the mortal realm. Shadowthrone apparently does not sit it, so it is a fragment that might not be in his possession. I almost thought that ApsalaCrokus was going to fade out of the story, given a happy ending / normal life, but looks like we have more to go. I like the divorce from Crokus to Cutter, in order to protect himself Crokus has crafted a new him to lay all his sins on. All is not well in loveland.
Onrack + Trull : Quest to get the fuck out of this warren (This is the 3rd or 4th time we've had to watch characters try to escape from this shit warren.) Onrack introduces the concept that statues/icons can be inhabited by the powers they represent, then later releases two Hounds of Darkness, who might be the two Paran sent into the Warren of Dark in Gardens. Oh and we finally meet some Tiste Liosan (Light) and they are certain High Elf archetypes (aka dicks).
Karsa Orlong : Quest to do something for the Seven, but really he is probably just looking for a horse and its conveniently in the same direction. Ostensibly Sha'ik's only trustworthy bodyguard, he is leaving her to a pit of snakes. Also we discover that he isn't a Whirlwind follower like he seemed to be in Deadhouse, and he is also getting pretty done with the Seven, if he finds out they are Imass, it might be the last straw.

Book of the Fallen and Death

So I've basically decided at this point that anyone who has died is not really dead until I forget they exist. A LOT of characters have come back from the dead, in full, in spirit, or partially. If a god still wants to use you, you don't die, sometimes you get to become a god, or magic saves you.
List of people who died but are not dead off the top of my head - Tattersail, Bellurdan, Nightchill - Duiker - Ganoes Paran - Toc the Younger - Baudin (If he is the Knight of Death, im 99% sure) probably more but its very late for me, and I'm sleepy

The Whirlwind Rebellion

Things are looking very very very very very bad for this rebellion tbh. Every "officer" except MAYBE L'oric is conspiring to kill each other and/or Sha'ik. Bidithal isn't worth an ounce of slimy scum. Felisin Elder doesn't seem to be commanding well. And its home to the weirdest most complicated conspiracy I think I've seen in a book.
Korbolo Dom's plan A. Betray Malazan forces in Seven Cities, slay half your legion, assist in the uprising B. Allow High Mage Febryl to assassinate Sha'ik C. Allow Tavore Paran to defeat and kill High Mage Febryl and all Whirlwind forces not loyal to Korbolo D. Kill Tavore Paran and her army E. Destroy the rebellion and everyone who resists and return Seven Cities to the Empire F. Return to the Malazan capital, assassinate the Empress, be Emperor.
wow...just wow. I mean, good for you shooting for the stars but....what?????
Speaking of slime, even Felisin Elder couldn't stand Mallick Rell, the Jhistal Priest of Mael, so he has been sent packing. He'll pop up elsewhere, he has to get his just desserts.
The storyline going on between the two sisters opposing each other is cool and I'm down for it. I wonder what Tavore is going to do when she figures out her opponent is Felisin Elder.
Korbolo Dom does have an idea that starts off as good and then tapers off into bad. He wishes the world would be free of gods and magic so that the common man can take control of his own destiny, but then goes on to fantasize about exterminating all the other races and making his way to live the only way to live.

Shadowthrone + Cotillion

I noticed a recognizable lack of Shadow in Memories of Ice but they are back and sticking their fingers in everything again. Cotillion is straight up asking people to go on quests for him, Lostara Yil, Cutter, Kalam, so he is invested in the outcomes of their storylines. He also implies that Shadowthrone is not the master in the relationship and that they are not as unified as previously perceived in the books. There are also implications that their claim on the Shadow Warren is being contested by someone, though Anomander Rake has proprietary claim on the Throne of Shadow, he is protecting it for some reason.
I'm really lost on what their objectives are now, none of these questlines seem to be able to hurt Empress Laseen. Has the Crippled God's recent moves changed their objectives?


Ahhhh favorite parts are probably the tangled and sordid conspiracies happening in the Whirlwind. We had A LOT of characters this section, and there is a bit of a pattern with the books being mostly a slow burn that ramps up to several major conflicts where all the characters kind of eventually mash together, so this one is sure to be a mess for all involved. In Deadhouse we got character pairings in, in this one we get individual quests and two mega collections of characters heading towards a fight.
TBH though, this was kind of a weaker section compared to all the other ones, a few of the POV characters from previous books don't seem to have any motivation other than "Cotillion asked me to do him a favor and despite no one liking him or Shadowthrone, we said yes." Maybe I'm just cranky.
Favorite character THIS BOOK so far : I don't know, uh, Cuttle, Karsa Orlong, The sergeant that broke a shovel on Karsa's head, Shard or Cord.
Until next time!

2023.03.22 07:44 Jibu_LaLaRoo 29m looking to chat with people with shared common ground.

I like talking about a lot of things such as game design, animation, bits of engineering, nature and animals. Nerd stuff. Comic book characters. Anime. Video games. Psychology. Science.
I like a lot of music but what I am into recently is a lot of synth music. Really resonates with me. Bands like The Midnight. I’ve also been listening to some bands I am just learning about such as Roosevelt and Cannons and others.
I like to think I’m a good conversationalist. But I do have a way of talking where I take a bit to get to my point sometimes. Other times you wonder what I brought up has anything to do with what we are talking about. I have ADHD so conversations with me can be very tangential and imaginative. If you don’t mind rabbit hole convos or you actually enjoy those then you’d enjoy talking to me.
I like to entertain thoughts you or myself may have. Thought experiments for fun. Brainstorms. Things like that. What ifs.
I am sure however that I can be annoying in that I talk a lot if given the chance and therefore I do get self-conscious about how much I talk. Sometimes I’ll cut myself short if it seems like I’ve overtaken the convo by accident.
I’m very literal as a person. So reading between lines can be a hard for me and I appreciate straightforwardness. I don’t get my feelings hurt easily nor do I get mad easily. So you don’t need to navigate me like a mine field.
However I do admit I am romantically lonely and I don’t tell people how much it hurts to be lonely that way. So it is something that can bother me. So when it comes to love I am a little tender. I am still not a mine field in that way. I am not someone who is going to get depressed as soon as you mention lovey dovey things but I do get in my head on some things.
Otherwise, I’m not easily offended either. In fact I’d like to be a person who wants to get along with everyone if I can manage it. You can talk to me about pretty much anything without me biting your head off.
If political beliefs matter to you, I lean more towards democratic but I have conservative friends. I like to try and not live in an echo chamber and try to listen what others are saying so I understand them better. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.
If you are a person who has a dirty mind and is perverted I get along with such people as well. I am very sexually open minded so if you are the type of person testing to see what you can and can’t say around someone there really isn’t much that you could say to me that you should be afraid to say or talk about.
I suppose if you’re just being an asshole unnecessarily I will point that out.
I’m not a bad person to come to when you need someone to talk to. I’m a good listener. Do keep in mind I like to believe that, if I’m going to care about you as a friend, and if I’ve known you for awhile I will tell you what I feel you need to hear and not what you want to hear. Because I feel it helps you more as a person if I do that instead of telling you what you want to hear all the time.
But I understand people really just need someone at a time to say “it’s ok.” That things will be fine. So I’m not going to be that person criticizing you and tell you what you did wrong at every chance I get. In fact, if you’re down and upset I’ll most likely try to find a silver lining and try to comfort you. Maybe hang out and just do something else if that cheers you up. Just know that if I feel you need to hear something, it’s because I think you’ll benefit from hearing it.
I could go further but I’m pretty sure this is a long enough post.

2023.03.22 07:44 Fit-Intention-6583 performance characteristics of double roller fertilizer granulator machine

Operation method of fertilizer granulator machine.
The double roller press granulator is an important granulation equipment for the organic fertilizer manufacturing process. There is no need to add any wetting agent. The use of the roll extrusion granulator is simple in process and easy to operate. . Installation and commissioning of such equipment is also very simple.
Installation: During the installation of the granulator, the granulator is important. It is installed in coordination with the process to determine its elevation and horizontal position, and the bracket is directly fixed on the machine.
Commissioning: After the installation of the dry roll granulator, the machine to be commissioned is adapted to the production requirements of fertilizers.
  1. Adjustment of the gap between the pressing roller: adjust the distance between the driven shaft and the step according to the drive shaft of the production roller: stop, the caps on both ends of the driven shaft are released, and the new setting is between the two rollers when the two parts have the same rotation direction The rollers do not collide.
  2. External adjustment of the socket: 1. Axis adjustment: unload the shaft piece of the drive shaft, rotate the eccentricity, the eccentric displacement corresponds to the promotion of the active roller shaft. Adjustment of circumferential positioning: Unload and loosen the passive gear and adjustment bolt to disengage the slight adjustment sleeve and the passive gear, and roll to see the purpose of adjustment.
