2023.03.30 19:06 Dipthot42 Head Units for BMW X1 with no factory fitted screen.

Hello everyone. I have a 2014 BMW X1 E84 that did not come with a factory fitted head unit. And I have a couple of questions. All help and opinions appreciated.
  1. I just need to activate Google Maps/Waze, Spotify/Music and Reverse camera. I can buy an after market Android head unit like the ones sole by Xtrons (they have units specifically for the BMW X1 so fit perfectly into the available slot), but do I even need an Android based unit. Is there anything else I can buy use purely to run Android Auto and attach a reverse camera?
  2. If I do go for an Android head unit, can I get the basic 2GB RAM/32GMROM (rather than a 4GB/64GB one) version, because i don't plan to install any apps on the head unit itself but just use Android Auto?
  3. Any suggestions for brands and units most welcome.
Thanks a ton.

The land in this area is underlain by a layer of limestone, eroded and dissolved by rainwater and groundwater to form caverns, holes, and tunnels. This type of terrain is called "karst" and results in many geological features such as wet sinkholes, depressions, natural bridges and a disappearing stream. The hikers can either hike the 3.6-mile Sinkhole Trail to view the numerous sinkholes and geological features, or the 2.8-mile Gum Swamp Trail around a cypress and gum swamp. We recommend wear hiking shoes and bring a water bottle, and consider bug spray or long pants/sleeves. 10am

2023.03.30 18:47 SulferAddict 88k miles on 2010 Volkswagen Jetta Turbo Manual Transmission, 4,000$ repair

Hi guys, appreciate any brainpower.
I have a volkswagen Jetta 2010. it only has 88k miles and i take it in for maintenance routinely. This last time it appears the rear main oil seal is leaking, which is causing other issues. Below is the email I received.
--If i were to go through with this fix, do you think it is financially worth it? The repair is going to be around 4,600$. Thank you for your time.
---Eamil Recieved
I have gotten the Jetta all checked out and have a report. It turns out that the reason that the check engine light is on is that there is a lean condition being detected. After performing the appropriate tests we have found that the rear main oil seal is leaking badly enough that it is sucking in unmetered air which is throwing the air fuel ratio off. This is also the source of an engine oil leak. We noted it last visit but it was not nearly as significant as it is now. I cannot put my eyes on the seal as the transmission and the clutch components are in the way of any sight line, but we have found this issue by filling the intake system in the engine with smoke and we can see it coming out of the bell housing of the transmission. The only path to get from the engine to the transmission is through that seal. I have also referred to one of our data bases and this is a common failure point on this engine/transmission setup. I propose that we replace that seal and because of the area that it is the clutch components would need to be replaced as they likely have oil on them which usually destroys them. The flywheel is also an area that I am uncertain about at this point, it would need a new surface for the new clutch disc to grip to. This can be achieved 2 ways, either by replacing the flywheel or machining the flywheel. To machine it is much less costly and would be preferable, but if the oil has gotten on the flywheel and created hot spots then the flywheel should be replaced as it will not stay true once the metal warps and changes. So, the estimate that I have prepared is taking into account a flywheel replacement but if we can save the flywheel it would save somewhere in the neighborhood of $700. In order to repair the vehicle in this fashion (rear main seal, clutch kit, and flywheel replacement) it would cost about $3700 plus tax. The drive belt is also cracking and should be replaced and the tires could use a routine rotation and balance as well.
If we were to get everything done, including testing, service, and the repairs I have listed, it would cost about $4650 including taxes and all. Like I mentioned, there is the possibility of saving $700 if the flywheel can be reused. I assume you will have questions. Please feel free to email back if that is easiest, or give me a call if you would prefer. Also, if you decide to move forward, it does take a few days to complete this kind of work. If you need transportation while it is being done, I have a loaner car I can arrange for you to use while we complete the work.

2023.03.30 18:36 dutchiesRweird Device for precise dosing

Hey everyone, I came across a device that gives precise dosage down to the sub-mg level. This works with vapes, oils and ointment. You just set out the amount you want and it measures and distributes it for you. I thought this was pretty cool as I've always been the type to play around with getting the right dose. However, it's still being developed so can't be purchased for testing. Are there other products out there that work like this? I haven't seen any other than some vapes that do something similar.

2023.03.30 18:24 thinkingstranger March 28, 2023

Today, House speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) sent a letter to President Joe Biden accusing him of being “missing in action” on efforts to address the approaching debt ceiling crisis. McCarthy accused Biden of “putting an already fragile economy in jeopardy” and tried to portray himself as the reasonable party, trying to negotiate “what is best for the American people.”
It was a simply astonishing document, brazen in its suggestion that it is Biden who is taking an “extreme position” on the debt ceiling when in fact it is the Republicans who are threatening to destroy the world’s economy to get their way. They are insisting they will hold the debt ceiling hostage to force a wide range of spending cuts, and also to push policies like easier access to drilling permits.
Once again, the debt ceiling is not about future spending. It’s about meeting the obligations past Congresses have incurred. And a great deal of that debt was incurred during the Trump administration, in large part from the 2017 tax cuts that the Congressional Budget Office estimated would cost almost $2 trillion over 11 years.
Congress voted to increase the debt ceiling three times during the Trump administration. Biden had been clear that he expects it to do so again; he will not negotiate over paying the nation’s bills.
But, as part of the normal budget process, he has also been clear that he is more than happy—eager, even—to debate budget proposals with the Republicans. Biden produced a budget on March 9 and has said that he will enter into negotiations just as soon as the Republicans produce a budget proposal of their own.
But this they cannot do. McCarthy has promised dramatic cuts to the budget that he cannot deliver without cutting Social Security and Medicare, which the Republicans have agreed not to cut. At the same time, House Republicans have vowed to get rid of the provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act that fund the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), invest in addressing climate change, establish a minimum tax on the wealthy, and give the government the power to negotiate drug prices with pharmaceutical companies, provisions that the Committee for a Responsible Budget projects will save the government almost $2 trillion over 2 decades.
And so, McCarthy published a letter trying to blame Biden for the mess the House speaker is in.
Biden responded immediately to McCarthy’s extraordinary public letter with one of his own, thanking the speaker for his communication and reiterating that Congress has always increased the debt ceiling without conditions and should “act quickly to do so now.”
“We can agree,” he wrote, “that an unprecedented default would inflict needless economic pain on hard-working Americans and that the American people have no interest in brinksmanship. That is why House Democrats joined with House Republicans and voted to avoid default throughout the Trump Administration—without conditions, despite disagreements about budget priorities. That same standard should apply today.”
Biden noted that he had already provided the American people with his own detailed budget, one that would reduce the deficit by nearly $3 trillion over ten years by increasing taxes on the wealthy and on corporations, cutting subsidies for the oil and gas industries, and expanding the list of drugs over which Medicare can negotiate with pharmaceutical companies. “My proposals enable us to lower costs for families and invest in our economic growth, all while reducing the deficit,” Biden wrote.
“Unfortunately,” he continued, the Republicans' proposals would “exacerbate the debt problem I inherited by adding over $3 trillion” with more tax cuts “skewed to the same constituencies who should be paying more, like multinational corporations and the richest taxpayers.” He urged McCarthy, once again, to produce a detailed budget plan rather than vague calls for savings, “so we can understand the full, combined impact on the deficit, the economy, and American families.”
Biden asked McCarthy to produce a Republican budget plan before Congress’s Easter recess “so that we can have an in-depth conversation when you return. As I have repeatedly said, that conversation must be separate from prompt action on the Congress’ basic obligation to pay the Nation’s bills and avoid economic catastrophe.”
Republicans are using similar brinksmanship with regard to the military to push their extremist agenda.
Back in July, just after the Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, Pentagon officials warned the House Armed Services Committee that the abortion restrictions promptly imposed by Republican-dominated legislatures were adding to the military’s recruiting crisis by creating new family planning problems for military families. More than 100 military installations with about 240,000 service members are located in states that have total abortion bans, and Gil Cisneros, the Pentagon’s chief of personnel and readiness, warned that the new laws would hurt recruiting and that service members would leave the military rather than continue to live in those states.
In February, the military launched a policy permitting military personnel up to three weeks’ leave and reimbursement for travel expenses to go to a state that permits abortion care and fertility treatments. Those rules went into effect this month.
Now, Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) is refusing to permit senior military promotions—at this point 160 of them—in protest of the military’s rules covering reproductive health care. “You all have the American taxpayer on the hook to pay for travel and time off for elective abortions,” Tuberville said to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin today as he spoke before the Senate Armed Services Committee. “And you did not make this [policy] with anybody in this room or Congress taking a vote.”
Austin responded that women make up almost 20% of the military and about 80,000 are stationed in states that don’t have access to abortion (and men want to plan their families as well). Tuberville’s hold on promotions means that senior officials cannot rotate into new positions, leaving the military without leaders in places like the Navy’s 5th Fleet, which oversees military operations in the Middle East and which is due for a new leader within the next few months. Those holes will become worse over the next several months as key military leaders are set to retire or rotate out of their posts.
Austin warned that Tuberville’s stance affects military readiness, and Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that Tuberville’s brinksmanship with the military risks “permanently politicizing the confirmation of military personnel…. If every single one of us objected to the promotion of military personnel whenever we feel passionately or strongly about an issue, our military would simply grind to a halt,” Schumer pointed out.
Tuberville says he will not stop his objections until the abortion policy is ended.

2023.03.30 18:21 NASDQplayer97 Epazz Holdings: ZenaDrone, Inc. 1000 AI Predictive Received a Letter of Support from the US Air Force for Drone Cargo Delivery and Intent to Use ZenaDrone 1000 Platform

Mar 28, 2023 (NewMediaWire via COMTEX) -- CHICAGO, IL - (NewMediaWire) - March 28, 2023 - Epazz Inc. (OTC: EPAZ), a mission-critical provider of drone technology, blockchain mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions, announced today that ZenaDrone, Inc. received a letter of support from U.S. Air Force to use ZenaDrone 1000 for drone cargo delivery, which includes blood transport. ZenaDrone is invited to work with the U.S. Air Force at an overseas base to test the ZenaDrone 1000 platform under battlefield conditions. ZenaDrone will be assigned a team from the base to conduct the test.
Over the past couple of months, ZenaDrone 1000 has been presented and showcased in front of the U.S. military. The company has been getting traction from the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army. This test will be the first time ZenaDrone will be actively used in a military environment. Additionally, the test allows ZenaDrone to move to Technology Readiness Level 7 (TRL). “Technology readiness levels (TRLs) are methods for estimating the maturity of technologies during the acquisition phase of a program. TLR’s are measured on a scale of 1 to 9 with 9 being the most mature technology.”
ZenaDrone is now qualified to submit a Phase II SBIR grant for external funding of this cargo delivery solution. Phase II SBIR grants are generally up to $1.2 million for a two-year period and a nondilutive source of funding. This will be the second direct to Phase II project for ZenaDrone 1000.
CEO Shaun Passley, Ph.D., said, “We are excited to see ZenaDrone 1000 the subject of so much attention in multiple military branches. The Air Force clearly sees value in this platform and is pushing the envelope of new testing to find out the extent of its capabilities. We are anxious to receive critical feedback from the Air Force as we transition to mass production operations. We are currently in the process of evaluating a number of suitable sites while balancing the potential commercial uses. We also hope shareholders see how we are trying to move the technology forward through the use of nondilutive funding sources.”

2023.03.30 17:47 _blushpink Field report (THANK YOU)

Hi everyone! I made a post here a few months ago about how my marriage was pretty much falling apart and I just wanted to come on here and give an update/field report. You can find my original post in my history.
I want to thank everyone that took the time to give me their input and advice. Also thank you to everyone that contributes such fantastic advice on this sub that you really cannot find elsewhere. I wish more women were given Red Pill advice because I really think it would save a lot of relationships and marriages.
I’m happy to report that in only a few months my marriage has done a complete 180 for the better. We’re in an amazing place and I really didn’t think it was possible to turn things around in such a short time.
I’m going to list out what I think are the biggest game changers that I implemented that saved my marriage in hopes that I might be able to help anyone in a similar situation. So here goes:
  1. I stopped complaining. Sounds simple and easy but honestly it wasn’t. I had become so used to unloading all of my stresses of the day onto my husband after he had already worked a full day of his own. Upon further reflection I realized I used to do this to try to “prove” that my job at home was also hard. Honestly it sounds crazy saying it now, I can’t believe I used to think like that.
Instead of complaining, I would have a big smile when he got home (even if some days I had to fake it), give him a kiss, ask him how his day was and listen. When he asked me how my day was, I told him I had a good day and only brought up the positive parts of it. If it was an especially hard day I would tell him that the kids were cranky or unruly or whatever else made the day tough but I always ended it with “but overall it was a great day!”
And surprisingly the less I complained, the less I felt I had to complain about and my mood naturally improved to the point where that smile at the end of the day was always genuine and my husband was able to come home to a positive environment and felt like his day of work was worth it because his wife and kids were happy and taken care of at home.
  1. I mentioned in my original post that I was a part of a few “stay at home mom” groups that were basically just a bunch of other moms complaining about the hard parts of staying home with small children. I left ALL of those groups. Every single one.
Initially I thought that these groups were a beneficial thing for me. I thought it was somewhere where I could vent and be understood and validated by other women who were in the same situation as I was, but I was wrong. It was just an echo chamber of negativity that didn’t focus on any of the positive aspects of my situation (oh like you know, the fact that I get to STAY HOME because I have a hardworking man supporting me and my children).
  1. This one goes hand in hand in hand with #2… I stopped following all of those “relatable mom” accounts on social media. You know the ones - the viral social media moms that are always posting about how husbands everywhere are not doing enough with the kids or around the house and basically just portraying their husbands as useless, incapable men that only bring home a pay check?
This kind of stuff is becoming its own culture and it’s not helping anyone. If you follow accounts like this, I highly recommend you don’t anymore because these women are entitled and miserable, I can guarantee that their husbands are miserable and they are convincing other women that their husbands should be doing their own job AND theirs.
  1. I started initiated sex.. a LOT. After having two kids and still breastfeeding, my libido is definitely not the same as it used to be but I decided I wasn’t going to let that be an issue anymore. My husband deserves to be able to connect with his wife at the end of the day and feel loved. And one of the best ways to show a man love is through sex.
This might not be great advice for anyone with any type of sexual trauma or something like that but I started initiating sex pretty much every night EVEN if I didn’t feel like it. I stopped looking at sex as an optional thing that would happen if I wasn’t too tired or stressed and instead starting looking at it as something that was imperative to the success and health of my marriage and something that should be happening every night.
I read somewhere on this sub that if a husband isn’t having sex with his wife, he is feeling what we would feel if our husbands just stopped talking to us. To men, sex is synonymous with love and emotional attachment. At first it seemed unnatural to me but now I look forward to connecting in this way with my husband every night and I genuinely want to show my husband that I love and appreciate him.
  1. I started studying red pill content, this sub, and traditional gender roles. Someone on this sub once mentioned the old blog “The Red Pill Room” and it’s a great resource. Two books that I see mentioned in this sub a lot and that I really enjoyed and found helpful were The Surrendered Wife and For Women Only.
The more I learn about traditional gender roles the more they make sense and the more I appreciate and enjoy my own role. I used to find being a homemaker very repetitive and mundane but now I have found a new sense of empowerment in taking care of my husband, my children and my home. I have come to see how important my role is and what a privilege it is that I’m able to fulfill it.
  1. I know this is talked about a lot in this sub because of Laura Doyle but it really is important - SELF CARE. I realized I had been neglecting myself and this in turn was making me miserable. As the keeper of my home, I set the tone in my household and if I’m miserable everyone is going to suffer. Especially my husband.
I started doing the things that I used to do before having kids that made me feel good about myself. I started doing Pilates again, doing hair oil treatments and taking care of my nails. Once per day I put a show on for my kids and enjoy a cappuccino and read or scroll through my phone.
Doing these things has made me feel happier and has boosted my self confidence. In turn, this has improved my mood and outlook on life which enables me to be a better wife AND a better mother.
These six things have literally saved my marriage. Not only have I changed, but so has my husband. He is more attentive towards me, is willing to do more for me and we have grown closer together. We flirt with each other again and are both happier and less stressed out.
This is only after a few months. I’m seriously amazed. The first few weeks I would find myself reverting back to my old ways and I would read Red Pill content to bring myself back to my new mindset. But now after such amazing results, I rarely find myself in that place. I truly feel like a brand new woman.
So thank you Red Pill Women! Sounds dramatic, but you have literally changed my life.
To anyone who thinks their marriage is headed towards divorce and wants to save it: I really mean it when I say that as long as you’re able to see where your faults are and commit yourself to changing and treating your spouse with respect and love despite how resentful or wronged you feel by him - you can and will turn things around and be happy in a very short amount of time!

2023.03.30 17:38 Kielavielewi Looking for advice on possible drug or physical interactions...

34 year old female. I have been prescribed Vyvanse to control my ADHD and Binge Eating Disorder, but unfortunately I am unable to take it due to my High Blood Pressure. I'm struggling a lot with my ADHD and BED, and together they're exacerbating some of my other conditions. I've been trying to get through it on my own and just "try harder" but my ADHD is winning. I've come across some supplements that others claim have worked well in minimizing their ADHD symptoms and I'm interested in researching them further, so I'm curious if there are any known interactions with my current Medical Conditions and medications with the supplements I've listed before doing more research. I will be reaching out and speaking with my family doctor before starting anything, but it takes a while to get in with them for non-emergent issues due to a doctor shortage in my area. So I'd like to know if there is anything I should immediately eliminate from my list before researching more and bringing the information to my doctor.
Thanks in advance for any help or insight offered.
Current Medical Conditions: • Obesity • Type 2 Diabetes • High Blood Pressure • Elevated Cholesterol • NAFLD • PCOS • ADHD • Anxiety/Depression • Binge Eating Disorder
Current Medication: • Metformin 2000mg • Escitalopram 10mg • Ramipril 5mg • Ozempic (not yet started, but will be starting in the near future)
Supplements I'm interested in researching further: • B12 • B6 • Magnesium Glycinate • Fish Oil • CoQ10 • Lion's Mane • L-Tyrosine • Saffron • Ashwagandha

2023.03.30 17:20 OrvilleSpencer34 Reduced ApoB from 129 to 110 by going from 38 to 12 grams of daily SFA. Need Advice.

Reduced ApoB from 129 to 110 by going from 38 to 12 grams of daily SFA. Need Advice.
I am a 27-year old male.
Attached is my Cardio IQ test from 7 months ago. I was on the following diet, about 38 grams of saturated fat per day according to the nutrition labels:
Breakfast: one whole avocado. Three eggs fried in butter. 1 cup of whole fat Greek yogurt, mixed with a serving of grounded flax seeds and berries. 1 serving/1 oz/1 handful each of pistachios, peanuts, walnuts and pumpkin seeds. So about 4 servings of nuts in total.
Lunch: Either a 3-4 oz salmon or two chicken legs, alternating every day. Steamed vegetables with 2-3 spoons of olive oil. 1 serving of pistachios.
After I got these results, I cut from 38 to 12 grams of saturated fat per day (cutting out all dairy fat, nuts and olive oil), represented by the following diet:
Breakfast: one whole avocado. 1 cup of non-fat Greek yogurt, mixed with a serving of grounded flax seeds and berries. Three hard boiled eggs.
Lunch: either chicken breast or 3-4 oz salmon, alternating every day. Steamed vegetables.
For both the 38- and 12-gram diets, I still allowed myself to dine out once a week, usually Greek or Lebanese food. However, I abstained from even this indulgence for three weeks leading up to my follow-up lipid panel, so my diet was quite clean, yet my results were not as great as I expected:
ApoB 110 mg/dL
LDL Cholesterol Calculated 145 mg/dL
VLDL Calculated 9 mg/dL
Triglycerides 56 mg/dL
HDL 90 mg/dL
Total Cholesterol 244 mg/dL
Chol/HDL Ratio 2.7
So, what am I supposed to do now? By Attia's standards my ApoB is still far too high. Am I supposed to cut out the rest of the fat in my diet, the avocado, eggs and salmon? At the end of his interview with Lewis Howes, Peter named those three among his top four foods for longevity. How am I supposed to lower ApoB while maintaining good nutrition? I enjoy eating those foods and would rather not replace them with stuff like oatmeal. I also hesitate to replace avocado/eggs/salmon with legumes and plant protein based on Peter's interview with Don Laymon, as well as because I've had a kidney stone before and need to minimize oxalate.
Is it time to consider statins? My cardiologist recommended a statin after my first Cardio IQ panel, but I insisted on first trying to resolve the issue through dietary measures.
The thing that bugs me: For my follow-up test I was eating 1/3 the amount of saturated fat as I was for my first test – wouldn't we have expected a much greater drop in ApoB? Also, four days before the follow-up panel, I did heavy lifting and some running, and I've read that one shouldn't exercise too vigorously before a lipid panel. Is it possible that my lifting session (5x5 heavy squats and deadlifts) four days before my test inflated my lipid numbers?
My lowest recorded LDL is 82 (direct measurement) in 2021, ironically when I didn't give a shit about diet and health and before I discovered Attia. I wasn't eating eggs and avocados at that time. But I wonder if an LDL 82 is low enough to justify giving up nutrient-disease foods instead of going on a statin and being able to eat what I want.
edit: some family history: no family history of heart disease. Maternal grandmother is on statins, maternal grandpa died of smoking/lung cancer. Paternal grandfather died from Alzheimers, paternal aunt has dementia, paternal uncle died from type 2 diabetes. However maternal grandma and other extended family made it to their mid-nineties.

2023.03.30 17:17 snapsigma Benefits of Prostadine - A Natural Solution for Prostate Health

If you are a man, the chances are that you have thought about your prostate health at some point. The prostate is a small gland located below the bladder, and its function is to produce semen. Unfortunately, as men age, the prostate can enlarge, leading to unpleasant symptoms, including difficulty urinating, frequent urination, and even erectile dysfunction.
Thankfully, natural solutions are available that can help promote prostate health and reduce the risk of these symptoms. One such solution is Prostadine, a natural supplement designed to support prostate gland health.
In this article, we will take a closer look at the benefits of Prostadine and how it can help you maintain a healthy prostate.
Related post: Prostadine Reviews: USA, Australia, Canada, UK, New Zealand

What is Prostadine?

Prostadine is a natural supplement that contains a blend of herbs, vitamins, and minerals specifically chosen for their ability to support prostate health. The key ingredients in Prostadine include saw palmetto, zinc, vitamin E, and pumpkin seed oil, all of which have been shown to have positive effects on prostate health.

Benefits of Prostadine

Supports a healthy prostate
Prostadine contains various ingredients that have been shown to support prostate health. Saw palmetto, for example, has been used for centuries to treat urinary tract problems and is known to help reduce inflammation in the prostate gland. Zinc is also an essential mineral linked to prostate health, with research suggesting it may help reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Reduces symptoms of an enlarged prostate
As men age, the prostate gland can become enlarged, leading to a range of unpleasant symptoms. Prostadine contains a range of ingredients that can help reduce these symptoms, including saw palmetto, which has been shown to improve urinary flow and reduce the frequency of urination.
It may reduce the risk of prostate cancer
Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men, with around one in nine men diagnosed with it in their lifetime. Thankfully, there are steps that you can take to reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer, and Prostadine may be one of them. Studies have shown that saw palmetto, one of the key ingredients in Prostadine, may help reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Promotes sexual health
As well as supporting prostate health, Prostadine may also have benefits for sexual health. Saw palmetto, for example, has been shown to improve erectile dysfunction, while zinc is known to help boost testosterone levels.

2023.03.30 17:09 Spiritual_Bourbon Thoughts on Beane moving up in this draft?

I have been thinking about the trade the Bills made in 2017 that allowed KC to move up from 27 to 10 in order to draft Mahomes. To do this, KC gave up 1-27 and 3-91 in 2017 and their 1st in 2018 which became 1-22. Right now Buffalo holds the 27th pick and I wanted to see opinions on Buffalo moving up in the draft to 10-15 position. When Beane said he didn't want to be in a positive to draft a player like Ja'Marr Chase, I took that as not wanting to have your own pick that high in the draft. But moving up is a different story and KC has shown you can make this type of move without it costing your team.
Example 1: Peter Skoronski is still on the table at 10 and Philadelphia has two picks in the 1st (10/30). Buffalo does the same trade with Philly that they did with KC but positions reversed. Skoronski would instantly upgrade the right side over Brown and has position flexibility to play inside and outside. He would instantly upgrade the line from a group of concern to one with positive value.
Example 2: Jordan Addison or Jaxon Smith-Njigba is still on the board at 12 and Houston isn't doing anything next season and could really use the draft capital to rebuild that roster. One of these kids would give a huge upgrade to the WR group and would play next to Diggs on a rookie deal. This would soften the blow of Davis if he leaves and they would step into WR 1 down the road.
Am I crazy?

2023.03.30 17:09 SomeoneBehindThePC Is there any reason why I should bring a bass amp to mid-size venue gigs?

Back around 2017, I'd shown up to a popular "hardcore" metal venue with nothing but a SansAmp for reasons that escape me.
It was niice. Even with the headliner's gear staged behind us, there was still room to move around and not trip over the bass mic. But I remember one of the lads at soundcheck being all like "Next time, bring a cab".
No? I've got a smaller car now than I did before the plague, and my cat just pissed on my smaller amp. Fuck that shit.
And I just LOVE bringing a rack with t̶h̶r̶e̶e̶ five separate direct outputs to shows and getting mic'd up anyway, and having to deal with the consequences.
The venue in question was one of those "if you're not wearing earplugs in the back, you're wrong"-type places with a good PA that can obviously handle DI bass. Monitoring was sufficient.

2023.03.30 17:04 gigantegiraffe28 I have a question about the process for discharging a PLUS loan, as mom is now fully disabled.

My mom took out a Parent PLUS loan (or Direct PLUS loan, I see them used interchangeably) in the Fall of 2015 when I was a student at Univ. of Mississippi. The amount was $9,700 something and sits at $12,000 something now. It will come due on Sept 3. I finished by undergrad then did masters, never paid on it. Well, the borrower is my mom and in the Fall of 2020, she was approved for full disability (much more details in next paragraph). Until yesterday, I had no idea that a pathway for discharge exists under this circumstance. I'm thankful that now I know, so that I have about 5 mo. to take action, even though that doesn't sound like much when dealing with the federal govt. I did read on the student aid govt site that sometimes if a parent has disability that Nelnet will automatically be notified and it will be automatically be discharged. I am unaware that me or my mom have ever heard anything from them. Does anyone have anything to share about this process? It seems that there are 3 "paths" being VA status (she's not a veteran), SSA documentation, and Physician Documentation.
Details about my mom's situation: she was once a registered nurse. she has a lot of issues with her back and chronic pain. She has received 3 back surgeries and 2 bone spur surgeries in her life. She has AS (ankylosing spondylitis) which means her upper back is becoming more stiff/rigid over time and there is a lot of pain involved. She had 2 back surgeries when i was little and a kid. Her last one was in the fall of 2014. It involved 3 vertebrae being fused into 1 column in her neck b/c the cartilage was so worn, causing severe numbness. She did return to work after healing. Then took off for a bone spur removal. Back to work for a moment. Then off again in 2016 or 2017 for the other foot's bone spur removal. After the 2nd one, the PT was very hard and it started to become clear to her that working would be very difficult. So, she began a disability claim. I don't know how far she got into the process. But she and her spouse were approached with a business opportunity that involved being owners/managers of a dog boarding facility. They did that, as my mom thought that this office type owner position would be something she could do. Well, that whole thing went down. It had a lot of overhead, in a rural area, dumb little workers that would quit, not good profit. So that was a 1.5 yr over and done thing. So after that, she began her Disability application again. I believe on this one, she was denied 2x (at least once, I know that) and finally, with her attorney, went before a federal judge in Memphis and did the thing. Before the judge, other staff, explained her case, her attorney had all I's dotted, T's crossed. And it was awarded in fall of 2020. So she is, right now, Totally and Permanently Disabled. Well, she and her spouse separated and filed divorce around Oct 2021. And out of spite and malice her wife called SSA and made a false claim that she was working, driving around and doing dog rescue, etc, which was not true. There were some instances where my mom would ride along on a dog rescue trip, esp some to VA, PA, CO, just to see the places on a budget, but she was not employed or getting cash under the table. That was her then spouse doing those jobs, and her then spouse that vengefully made those false claims once they were apart. Sadly, my mom's wife died in an auto accident after that happened and after they had been apart for some time. I only write all this to give a really clear picture. My co worker who used to work in financial aid has told me before that she knew a girl in college whose mother had a stroke and was receiving disability but that the federal govt only partially reduced the loan amount. Which is sickening.
Edit - also, my mom does not have massive assets. She owes $40,000 on a 1990 3 bd / 2 bath house, gets around $1800 per month. That's left with $200-300 by time pay bills, food, mortgage, car note. She doesn't even have enough to pay the $170 premium for Medicare Part B just to see doctor. She pays out of pocket to go get her meds and used some uhh, self help herbals, to help with back pain.

A Weekend at Munson Manor
A Weekend at Munson Manor is an interactive Choose Your Own Path Mystery. Each episode, readers vote for the path they would like to take. Together, we will follow the path with the most votes.
“Welcome to Munson Manor. May I take your coat?”
Nodding, you remove your windbreaker. As you pass it to the butler, you can't help but feel underdressed in your jeans and sweater. The man before you is wearing a three-piece black suit with a matching tie. Unlike you, he looks like he stepped out of the 1940s.
The butler drapes your jacket over his arm and gestures you inside. “Please come in. What is your name?”
Out of habit, you almost respond with your real name. But just in time, you remember the information packet you received when you registered for this weekend. “Dr. Poole.”
The butler nods. “Welcome, Doctor. My name is Charles. If you have any issues this weekend, do not hesitate to let me know. If you please, allow me to show you to your room.”
But Charles isn’t really looking for your permission. He grabs your suitcase, extending the telescopic handle and dragging it into the hall.
As you follow, you can’t help but admire your new surroundings. Late afternoon light shines through the stained glass windows on either side of the main entrance. The wooden floors are in a diagonal parquet style you only recognize because you saw it mentioned on a television show once. To your right is a heavy bench made of a dark wood. The back contains an intricate carving, but in your rush to keep up with the butler, you do not have time to discern the pattern.
Paintings hang on burgundy walls with ornate walnut wainscotting. They look to be oil paintings, but you are no art connoisseur. All you know is that they are a mixture of landscapes and portraits.
Doorways lead to several rooms, but the butler gives you no time to explore. You have just enough time to notice a grandfather clock on each side of the room before realizing the butler is already halfway up the stairs with velvet carpet the color of a fine merlot.
You hurry to catch up, passing another grandfather clock on the landing. How many clocks does one mansion need?
At the top of the stairs, the butler turns right into a hallway with white marble floors and three white doors. The one on your right is ajar. The butler pushes it open and gestures inside.
“Your room, Dr. Poole.”
Compared to the rest of the house, the room is small. A four-poster bed sits to the right and an oversized armchair to the left. Between them is a white door with frosted glass. Black and white photographs—again, a mixture of landscapes and portraits—cover the white walls.
The wall to your right, facing the bed, contains a fireplace so small, you hardly noticed it. The wooden mantle and sides are painted the exact shade of the wall and the heart is so small, you wonder whether you will even be able to have a fire. Since there is no nearby woodpile, you assume not.
On your left is a small wooden desk. The seat of the matching chair is a white fabric with a forest scene embroidered in red thread. The desk is bare except for a blue folder.
The butler wheels your suitcase in front of an armoire behind you in the opposite corner of the room, gesturing to the closed doors. “You best get dressed. Dinner will be served at seven.”
With a nod, he leaves, closing the door behind him. But you’re not ready to get dressed. You want to examine that folder on the desk. This is not a period piece. This folder is very modern. You use them all the time at work.
The label on the front reads Dr. Poole. Curious, you take it to the bed. Inside are two pockets, but the sheet between them is loose. You read that first, but quickly realize it is the same letter you received in your registration email. A summary of the weekend and a reminder to remain in character at all times.
The rest of the pages, you quickly realize, are more information about your character. You quickly learn that Dr. Poole is a physicist researching uses for x-rays beyond medical imaging. You work at a nearby university, but you have reached a stumbling block in your research. A weekend at the manor sounded like the perfect change of scene to clear your head.
Now that you fully understand your character, it is time to get dressed. Moving aside your suitcase, you open the armoire to find several outfits. According to what you have just read, tonight’s supper is a formal affair, so you need to pick one of the fancy outfits.
Which should you put on?
  • The floor-length gown
  • The double-breasted suit
The taffeta gown is a gorgeous light blue with puffy short sleeves. The flattering brocade neckline is adorned with small flowers in the center. As you remove the dress from the closet, you are surprised at how lightweight it feels. And, you quickly realize, it fits you perfectly. At least now you understand why the registration had asked for all your measurements.
The silver dress shoes have a small heel, just within your comfort level. Frowning, you examine yourself in the mirror on the inside of the armoire door. Not bad. You definitely look like you belong in the 1940s.
Time to see what your host has in store for you this weekend.
You have no problem finding your way to the main hall, where the butler is standing idly. What was his name again?
He bobs his head—somewhere between a nod and a bow—when he sees you. “Dr. Poole. You are all settled in?”
“Yes. Thank you.”
“Excellent. The others are in their rooms. Would you like to wait in the parlor?” He gestures to a room on your left.
With a shrug, you turn into the room. Gold-framed portraits adorned rose walls with dark-red flowers adorning them. You aren’t positive, but it looks as if the walls may be covered in fabric instead of paper. Either way, they nearly match the drapes, all of which are open. White sheers filter in the last vestiges of daylight, adding to the light from the sconces on every wall and the glowing fireplace to your right.
On the far wall a cherry wood table sits between two windows. Upon it rests an assortment of glass bottles in various shapes and sizes, each filled with a different color liquid. To your right, nestled between two more windows is a hutch of the same wood. A matching chair sits beside it, its embroidered seat containing the same pattern as the walls and drapes. To your left is a large wooden panel you assume is some type of sliding pocket door. On your right, two overstuffed powder-blue couches sit on an ornate Persian rug with two matching armchairs, all facing the fire.
Without realizing it, you find yourself drifting into the room, drawn to the warmth of the fire. Unlike home, there are no electronics. No computer. No television. Not even a phone. Combined with your outfit, you truly feel as if you have stepped back in time.
Hearing voices, you turn to the doorway. You cannot see anyone, but you can definitely hear two men talking. And one of them just uttered your name. Curious, you inch closer to the door, standing against the wall so no one will see you.
“Yes, sir.” You recognize that voice. Isn’t that the butler whose name you keep forgetting? “Dr. Poole has arrived, changed, and is waiting in the parlor. Miss Lewis has yet to arrive. Everyone else is in their rooms.”
“Very well. Let’s—”
A buzzing sound interrupts the second man. Wordlessly, footsteps retreat—one set running, the other walking calmly. A moment later, you hear the front door open and a new exchange, this time between the butler and a woman. You hear him giving her much the same speech you received as he leads her up the stairs.
As you return to the fireplace, you wonder who that second man in the hall was. If he was another guest, shouldn’t he have joined you in the parlor? And how did he know everyone’s name?
Loud voices break your concentration. Two new voices, a man and a woman. You cannot hear the words. Are they arguing or just speaking in raised tones?
The butler’s voice interrupts them. “Mr. Rollins. Professor Mills. Dinner will be served shortly. If you would be so kind, the rest of the guests are gathering in the parlor.”
The man grunts something unintelligible, but the woman speaks. “Thank you, Charles.”
A moment later, the pair enter the room. The middle-aged man is tall, but seems to be having trouble fitting into his gray tweed blazer and green herringbone trousers. His maroon tie has a navy zigzag running from his neck to where it disappears behind his jacket buttons. His scuffed shoes are the same dull brown as his unkempt hair.
The slender woman behind him looks about the same age as the man. Her floor-length rose gown has a gathered bodice with thin shoulder straps and pleats beneath her waistline. Her short black hair curls tightly against her scowling face.
Neither seem to notice you. The woman huffs to the nearest armchair, sitting with her arms and legs crossed and glaring at the floor.
The man, meanwhile, goes straight to the table and examines the liquids. He lifts one, removes the top, and sniffs. With a shrug, he reaches for a rounded drinking glasses and pours three fingers of the amber liquid. After returning the bottle to the table, he steps to the nearby window.
Obviously neither of these guests wish to speak with each other. Maybe you should break the uncomfortable silence. But to whom should you talk first?
  • The man
  • The woman
Continue the adventure
