2023.03.22 07:49 thespuzz ‘Valuations of Indian stock market are not expensive from a long-term perspective’

Doshi: It’s very interesting that whatever is happening globally is just reinforcing our thought process and our belief that India is on the right track. We could never have expected such sort of accidents in our system. While we always think that we have regulatory challenges in India, today, I think it is a very big blessing.
I think whatever is happening globally, is just start of a cycle where you will see the pain going on for many years. These are all warning signals for us. But India stands out very well.
Jain: The way monetary policy and banking regulation in India has worked over the last few years has been a typical first world style of functioning, which unfortunately did not happen in the first world. It’s quite an irony.
About a decade ago, perhaps post GFC, in India, we saw fairly volatile times, with weak balance sheets at an aggregate level with huge NPAs building up and current account crisis as well. Post that we’ve seen – both at the government and at corporate level – steps taken to strengthen the structural fabric of India. I think we are just seeing the benefits of that come through. It’s a good thing that we did not let the crisis go waste.
I believe that the next decade is ours for the taking.
Mukherjea: I think every 10 years, America blows up. I don’t think that’s the story of the moment.
You will remember 2023-24 as the year in which the world went to war without weapons. What’s happening between America and China is very serious. And it has huge implications for us as a country. Let’s take two developments.
ASML, a company headquartered in the Netherlands, is the only company to produce ‘extreme ultraviolet lithography’ technology to produce integrated circuits, which play a key role in the global chip supply chain.
The Dutch government, basis the pressure from US, stated a few months ago that there will be no exports of ASML machines to China. The western world, in a way, is saying we will send China back to the stone age as quickly as possible by making sure this semiconductor manufacturing comes to a halt.
The other dimension is in the Pharma industry. When we speak to the western pharma major companies, in which we invested in, all of them say there are clear orders from the powers that be in America to buy less API from China and buy more API from India. Fly to Baroda, Surat or Vapi in India, you will see a whole new industry coming up, which is ramping up API production.
Even if China’s 10% of API production moves to India, our API industry will be doubled.

Indian stock market valuations
Doshi: It’s not that our premium has gone up. But it’s just that the valuations of the other countries have gone down. So, our valuations look a bit expensive. But India is charting a growth path of its own.
Could you have imagined that the inflation rate in India would be lower than many parts of the West. I couldn’t have dreamt of it 10 years ago. Further, in the last five years, we are enjoying a corporate tax rate of 25.17%, absolutely undisturbed. Now, isn’t that a very strong promise from our government, to provide consistency and stability?
Shah: Indian stock market valuations are undoubtedly not cheap on a one-year basis. But take a five-year view, and suddenly we are the cheapest among the emerging markets.
Today Maharashtra’s GDP is equal to what whole of India’s GDP was in 2005. The combined GDP of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand is what India’s GDP was in 2001. And three states—Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Karnataka—combined GDP is where India was in 2000. Can we assume that over the next 15-25 years, these states will produce what India is producing today, if all of us continue to work as hard? I think it is eminently achievable. Now, in which part of the world would you see states becoming as big as the country, with reasonable amount of assurance. People who buy into that story will not find India’s valuation expensive.
Jain: In the calendar year 2022, Nifty 50 gave about a 4%-5% return, which sounds unexciting, of course.
But you should analyse the performance of that 50-stock basket by removing the outliers. And you will find that the difference in returns between the best performing and the worst performing stock is 90%. The best performing stock gave you 50%, the worst performing stock was down 37%.
I think it’s important to be able to identify those companies and take advantage of stock selection in order to create alpha and not overly obsess about aggregate valuations, aggregate growth, etc.
Mukherjea: Do a simple analysis. You look at companies that have a double-digit revenue growth and double-digit ROCE (return on capital employed) in the last 10 years. India has 140 such companies and China has 130. Remember, China’s economy is 4-5 times larger than us and still has fewer companies with the growth I mentioned. And there is no other emerging market in that picture.
The Indian companies filtered would have compounded wealth at 24% over the last 20 years, while the Chinese companies would have compounded at 12%. This is the best that China has to offer .
The decade of manufacturing
Shah: The train which we missed in the 80s, where China became a manufacturer to the world and we became back office to the world, is likely to get reversed, in my opinion. It’s not a 1-3 year journey, it’s probably 10-30 year journey. For China, the manufacturing is about 40% of the GDP. India’s manufacturing should grow from below 25% of the GDP towards first 30%, then 35% and hopefully someday to 40%. That’s the story of manufacturing in India.
Be watchful of:
Mukherjea: We need to push up the ante on corporate governance. We have improved vastly from the days of Satyam and the DHFL debacle etc. But I think given the rate at which our country is going, also the rate at which domestic money is coming into big mutual fund houses, we owe it to the investor community both in India and abroad. To push up the ante on accounting, quality and corporate governance is imperative.
Shah: From the economic point of view, we can’t afford to make a self-goal. In 1947, we were at par with Japan in terms of per capita GDP. In the1960s, we were at par with South Korea. In the 80s, we were at par with China. Today, all these countries are way ahead of us. And that’s because they have done many good things. But we have scored self-goals. The best example of Indian self-goal is when Singur, a state in West Bengal, opposed Tata group’s automobile plant in an essentially backward area. They tried for five years, couldn’t do it and finally moved out. They went to Sanand in Gujarat, which is now growing at a healthy rate. If all of India is going to follow a Singur model, it is time to short India. If all of India is going to follow Sanand model, it’s time to go double long India.
Doshi: India runs one big risk of continuity of reforms. We have had extraordinary leadership at the country level, which need to carry on for another one or two terms, I believe. There are a lot of unfinished reforms in many fields such as agriculture, defence, divestment of PSUs. etc. These are some of these big-ticket items that will actually take India to the next level.
Jain: I like to think that we don’t have control over what is going to be the political climate in India over the medium term and also on how regulations will be shaped. But what we can control is identifying companies that will be able to traverse these differing political scenarios, macro-economic situations, and so on and emerge stronger. So, I would as an investor and as a fund manager, only urge that we need to put effort into identifying companies and winners that can go through variables that we can’t control or which we can’t predict.

2023.03.22 07:48 fjf1085 Dialogue not playing.

I’m playing on the PS4 and I haven’t played since last September, mostly because I’ve spent a lot of time on my PS5 finally finished Horizon Forbidden West. Anyway, I was home sick today and wanted to play the Witcher 3 to finally finish Blood and Wine, but it had a large update file so once it was done I went to play it and it seems there is no dialogue at all other than a few random comments by background characters but Geralt and anyone he speaks to has no audio. I even loaded a hard save I made in 2016 at the Battle of Kaer Morhen just to see, same issue. I’ve played this game for over 500 hours since release day and never had more than a minor glitch. Has anyone experienced this? Is this related to the 13gb patch it downloaded today? I see there has been a number of patches released since I last played. 4.00, 4.01, 4.02, and 4.03 so I don’t know which one caused the issue all that I know it was fine last time I played.
Anyway, has anyone encountered this and if so is there a solution? Should I try reinstalling the game?

2023.03.22 07:48 virgoBread Math 31b final

Took my calc final today and it’s safe to say I’ve never felt worse about an exam. Once I moved onto the second question I immediately knew I didn’t study properly for the test we were given, despite spending over a week prepping. I did the textbook problems, practice final, and watched so many videos over the concepts, but handing in my test and walking out of that lecture hall has left me feeling extremely defeated. I know there are plenty of others who feel similarly about the exam, but I’m not confident that my professor (Pablo O.) will be generous with the curve, considering he didn’t curve our second midterm which averaged a 60%.
I’m not looking for pity, just here to dump my thoughts and feelings before I take my next final tomorrow

I had an llc I started in 2017 for what ended up being a failed business and i stopped using it only a few months after opening it.

2023.03.22 07:47 matthewlevins The Exodus Effect Reviews 2023 (Scam or Legit?) Real Customer Truth Exposed!

The Exodus Effect is a systematic guide that allows Christians and non-Christians to create their healing oil using natural ingredients. It is 100% stimulant-free and non-addictive. The active ingredients are linked to longevity and well-being.
Historical and religious books document ancient remedies for longevity and good health. Various pieces of research show that the human lifespan is decreasing with time. Similarly, there has been an increase in ailments that may not have existed a few centuries back.
Professionals across various fields blame pollution, stress, chemicals, a sedentary lifestyle, and unhealthy food choices as the root of health issues. In the past, communities depended on natural herbs, plants, minerals, and vitamins to boost their defense system and fight infections.
The Bible is among the oldest religious books. It has been translated into hundreds of languages. However, the translation has supposedly led to some words getting different meanings. The Exodus Effect is a bible-based wellness program comprising God-approved ingredients lost during translation.

About the Product: What is the Exodus Effect?

Anointing oil is a common ingredient in most religious ceremonies. The Exodus Effect is a religion-based anointing oil containing natural and science-based ingredients to diminish pain, improve immunity, and strengthen faith.
The Exodus Effect is a systematic guide that allows Christians and non-Christians to create their healing oil using natural ingredients. It is 100% stimulant-free and non-addictive. The active ingredients are linked to longevity and well-being.
Per Exodus Effect creators, notable biblical figures such as Methuselah, Adam, and Ibrahim, among others, purportedly used the anointing oil daily. However, bible translation to various languages led to the loss of the "key" ingredient in the anointing oil.
Pastor Andrew and Dr. Benet, both of Divine Origins LLC, claim that multiple scientific and biblical evidence proves that CBD oil can enhance physical, mental, and spiritual health. According to the developers, Kaneh-Bosem originally referred to the cannabis plant. However, wrongful bible translation gave it a new meaning, "Calamus," which refers to an herb with minimal health benefits.
Exodus 30:22 supposedly lists the benefits of the original anointing oil created by God. The cannabis plant in the Bible created health-improving anointing oil that can:
Still, the Exodus Effect creators claim that biblical cannabis had zero THC elements and did not give users any side effects.

How Does the Exodus Effect Work?

Pastor Andrew warns that most Christians may disagree with using the cannabis plant for medicinal purposes. Today, marijuana is associated with causing mental issues and giving users nasty side effects with long-term usage.

The Exodus Effect comprises pure CBD oil from high-quality hemp. In combination with other natural extracts, the Exodus Effect rapidly absorbs into the system to provide users with significant health benefits. The guide provides information on how to prepare THC-free CBD locally.
Dr. Benet explains that the Exodus Effect improves and strengthens the endocannabinoid system. It improves various processes, including digestion, the circulatory, and respiration. It also targets pain and quickly erases it from the root. Similarly, CBD can inhibit the overproduction of cortisol, enabling the body to manage anxiety naturally. In addition, it reduces stress levels and minimizes oxidative damage at cellular levels. It can heighten immunity and lower unhealthy inflammations.

Key Exodus Effect Ingredients

The makers of the Exodus Effect claim that you can replicate the original bible-based anointing oil using cinnamon, cannabis, myrrh, cassia, and olive oil. The step-by-step guide supposedly explains how anyone can create THC-free CBD oil in the comfort of their home. However, the dosage should be potent and fresh to provide consumers with the advertised health benefits.
The human endocannabinoid system (ECS) depends on natural cannabinoid molecules to function optimally. Per various kinds of research, toxicity, unhealthy diet, and use of certain chemicals can lower cannabinoid levels, thus weakening the ECS. Cannabis comprises CBD elements that provide the body with cannabinoids, thus boosting its functions.
Dr. Benet explains that CBD oil can alleviate pain, particularly in the muscles, back, and joints. In certain dosages, it may combat chronic headaches and migraines. Additionally, pyre CBD oil is a crucial ingredient in managing stress symptoms. Considerable evidence shows that it can promote relaxation and alleviate anxiety. The Exodus Effect makers claim that it may combat insomnia and aid users in improving their sleep quality.
Myrrh is among the most used biblical herb and a common ingredient in anointing oils. The Exodus Effect makers claim that the herb can treat indigestion, leprosy, arthritis, and gout, among other common ailments. According to science, myrrh is a powerful antioxidant that can improve cellular health and fortify the disease-fighting system. Similarly, myrrh may reduce the risk of various health issues, including cardiac problems and diabetes.
Cassia is a plant extract that can boost muscular health and improve blood flow. Scholars claim that it can benefit the blood vessels and minimize the risk of developing hypertension. Additionally, it can lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and fat storage around the arteries.
Some studies indicate that cassia may aid in stabilizing blood sugar levels. It purportedly reduces insulin resistance and may surge fat metabolism.
Most households use cinnamon to add flavor to their food. The sweet-smelling ingredient is a detoxifying agent that can lower toxin levels in the blood. Additionally, it can combat free radicals aiding in cell regeneration.
Multiple evidence shows that cinnamon can support weight loss and intensify energy levels. It may increase respiration rates, improve digestion, and curb appetite.

Refund Policy

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 07:44 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.

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.

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 07:39 Throwaway7746222 Closing a delinquent LLC

I had an llc I started in 2017 for what ended up being a failed business and i stopped using it only a few months after opening it. I didn't file the periodic reports, lots of reasons/excuses but that's the truth, and it became delinquent. I dissolved the llc today when I finally got over my anxiety to do so. It says voluntarily dissolved. My questions are:
I'm sorry for the jumbled train of thought and appreciate any help.

2023.03.22 07:37 puzzled4798 my partner was admitted to inpatient bc of depression

I feel a mess of emotions. Relieved, worried, sad, lonely, scared, hopeful. We have dogs, cats and a whole farm to care for. The kids who volunteer keep coming to me with questions, and it just makes my heart ache. He does so much for everyone here, but he's been struggling for so long and his attempts to get help elsewhere were in vain. This week we have had a lot of tough conversations and so many stressors, I'm glad he was able to recognize what needed to be done to save our relationship, our farm, and his own life. It is not the same without him though I am relieved to know he is finally getting the care that he so desperately needs. I am thankful I have a decent support system, friends, coworkers, the volunteers here. Today one of our dogs got loose while someone was riding a horse in the ring (and this dog is notorious for trying to chase them while working, which is horribly dangerous for everyone) and I was in tears running around trying to catch him. Two girls helped me lure him with treats and get him back inside (because of course he just learned how to jump the 4ft fence, of course!) and I cannot stop thinking about how grateful I am for that. I thank god for bringing us here, for these animals, for the people i can lean on. I'm writing him letters to keep him updated, and so he doesn't have to miss out on all the crazy farm antics. Tomorrow is a new day and I pray for his healing.

Why are Legal Document Translations So Significant in 2023?
As the world becomes more interconnected, legal document translations have become a necessary part of doing business globally. With the rise of international trade, immigration, and travel, legal document translations are crucial for businesses, individuals, and governments. In this blog post, we will explore the importance of legal document translations and why they are needed in 2023.

Certified Translation Services:

When it comes to legal document translations, it is important to use certified translation services. Certified translations are translations that have been completed by a professional translator who has been accredited by a government agency or professional organization. These translations are recognized as legal documents in courtrooms, government offices, and other official settings.
Certified translation services ensure that your documents are accurate and complete, and that they meet the legal requirements of the country in which they are being used. They provide a level of assurance that the translated documents are of the highest quality, and that they will be accepted in any legal or official context.

The Importance of Legal Document Translations:

Legal document translations are essential for a variety of reasons. They are necessary for individuals who are immigrating to a new country, for businesses that are expanding into new markets, and for governments that need to communicate with other countries. Legal document translations are also needed for individuals who are seeking legal assistance or representation, as well as for individuals who are involved in legal proceedings.
Legal document translations are critical for individuals who are immigrating to a new country. Immigration laws can be complex and vary from country to country, and immigration officials may require documentation in a specific language. In addition, immigration officials may require certified translations of important documents, such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and diplomas.
For businesses, legal document translations are essential for expanding into new markets. Businesses need to communicate with their clients, customers, and suppliers in the local language, and legal documents such as contracts, agreements, and patents must be translated accurately. This is especially important in countries where English is not the official language.
Legal document translations are also crucial for governments that need to communicate with other countries. International treaties, agreements, and other legal documents must be translated accurately to ensure that all parties understand their rights and obligations. Legal documents such as passports, visas, and work permits must also be translated for individuals who are traveling to or working in foreign countries.
Legal Proceedings:
Finally, legal document translations are necessary for individuals who are seeking legal assistance or representation. Legal documents such as court orders, affidavits, and witness statements must be translated accurately to ensure that they are admissible in court. This is especially important in cases where the parties involved speak different languages.
In all of these situations, certified translation services are essential to ensure that legal documents are translated accurately and completely. Certified translations provide a level of assurance that the documents are of the highest quality, and that they will be accepted in any legal or official context.
Legal document translations are essential in today's globalized world. They are necessary for individuals who are immigrating to a new country, for businesses that are expanding into new markets, and for governments that need to communicate with other countries. Legal document translations are also needed for individuals who are seeking legal assistance or representation.
Certified translation services are essential to ensure that legal documents are translated accurately and completely. Certified translations provide a level of assurance that the documents are of the highest quality, and that they will be accepted in any legal or official context. In 2023 and beyond, legal document translations will continue to be an essential part of doing business globally.

2023.03.22 07:34 Big_Union_1276 Don't be hard on yourself if you fail

Remember "Even monkeys fall from trees". Just get up and Keep strikes again. Promise yourself that you will do better this time.
The first time I practiced NoFap it lasted only 12 days, the urges were too strong I couldn't go beyond that.
The second time was only 3 days. Me myself couldn't explain why I failed so quickly. But I got up and tried again.
The third time was 16 days. Here I started to believe I can finally break free.
I tried again and today I'm almost 50 days strike of hard-mode. I have full control, and feel that I'm completely cured.
Each time you fall, remember that you are getting closer to where you want to get, focus on maintaining progress and you will inevitably win.

2023.03.22 07:34 B33Kat Adequate size attaché

So I was thinking today… and I know it’s been brought up by a few theorists that the plan may have been to smuggle Jon Benet out of the house in that large suitcase that was later put under the window, but maybe she couldn’t fit or rigor mortis made it impossible to get her inside. There was a duvet cover inside that could have been wrapped around to conceal her. I never gave this a lot of thought until I was driving home.
So I do believe that the nightgown found near JB was meant to be something they redressed her into, but didn’t happen. After all the narrative is- she’s taken from her bed as she’s sleeping right? So being in her nightgown with a blanket makes sense. I also think as parents who loved her, they’d want her be found in something pretty and pristine like her favorite nightgown rather than urine stained ill fitting long johns.
So what came to click in my head was this possible timeline. JB’s body is found by Patsy with Burke having done everything (including strangling her) or even let’s say she is killed accidentally by Patsy or John and the noose is a cover up act because they don’t know she’s not dead and they want to point to an outsider. So you got Patsy at least undoing and retightening the neck ligature to get her jacket fibers in there, adding duct tape and wrist restraints. You got her spending probably a long time writing a note. She moves the body into the wine cellar, puts her tray over the urine stain, intends to clean JB up and redress her into the nightgown but can’t because she’s running out of time OR rigor mortis has kicked in enough she can’t manipulate JB into the nightgown or get the old clothes off.
The note I think makes the point of the attaché case because the idea was take Jb out in the case, dump the body near somewhere the cops would find it quickly, and come back with the money inside of it. No one’s going to question the Ramseys leaving with a suitcase if they’ve been instructed by the kidnappers to use one.
I think Patsy woke john up/showed him the note much earlier then they called the cops. I think he figured it out or she told him then what happened and they argued probably over when to involve the cops and john won. I think somewhere before the cops were called he went downstairs to try to get jb into the nightgown and Patsy went upstairs to make sure Burke was briefed to stay in his room/be quiet/whatever they needed to tell him. My guess is if patsy wasn’t the one that wiped her down before, john did then so she wouldn’t be tied to the urine stain in the basement - which may be how some fibers that resembled his sweater got in her pubic area. My guess is since its the long johns were on the small side, he couldn’t get them off past the knees or ankles when rigor mortis kicked in. The top may also have been difficult to get off her head.
In the hour plus he was unaccounted for and came back acting totally squirrelly j think he was trying but failing to get her into the suitcase and possibly failing to get her into the nightgown (this may have happened then too). That coupled, with the cops never fully leaving made him panicky. He definitely didn’t want them to find her first with his having manhandled the body trying to get it in the case, so he ultimately chose the big reveal and grabbed and carried her body so there’d be a plausible reason for his prints/clothing fibers to be on her.
But I think that nightgown and the suitcase were the final bits of the coverup that didn’t materialize. That’s why she was cleaned but not redressed into her favorite nightgown found near her body. That’s why there was a suitcase normally kept upstairs found downstairs near the body and a suitcase mentioned to transport money in the ransom note.

2023.03.22 07:31 Elliotem If you can type me you get a cookie

How old are you? What's your gender? Give us a general description of yourself.
I am 18. Biologically female.
I am definitely more on the quiet side. Definitely have some teenage angst.
Describe your upbringing.
I dont think I was parented too much and I had to teach myself a lot of basic skills (thank god for youtube) But I was raised by a single mother with 3 kids who had to work constantly to keep food on the table, so it's understandable.
Overall my upbringing with chaotic and messy.. but I wouldn't change it. I think everything has shaped me into who I am today and Im okay with it.
What do you do as a job or as a career?
I dont yet have a career.. Currently applying to entry level jobs.
Hoping to get a job one day that earns me enough money to not stress about bills. I will say task initiation is a big struggle for me.
If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel?
Absolutely refreshed. People stress me out, I try to avoid interacting with them. Though being near other humans, preferably in the corner of the room, is enjoyable.
What kinds of activities do you prefer?
My top hobby is art. I also do rubiks cube, puzzles, shopping, cooking, sudoko, sleeping..
But a lot of my time is taken up researching my interests, it refreshes me the most. I like neuroscience, MBTI, torture mechanisms, beetlejuice (mainly musical), math, and whatever educational videos happen to pop up on my youtube feed
How curious are you? Do you have more ideas then you can execute?
Im usually curious.
I dont know if I have many ideas.. but I definitely think about things more than I do them.
I am very curious into human nature, but I also enjoy learning about how the world works (it irks me how little we know, I am constantly finding dead ends)
Currently I am just starting to get into computers.
I absolutely cant stand learning about history, bores me to death.
Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it? What would your leadership style be?
No, But I think I would be good at it. I would try to be clear with my words and efficient in my actions. I would give everyone a task to do. If someone repeatedly cannot hold up their task, they would have a one on one with me so I cant help them through it. If they show carelessness, they're out. throw them overboard
Maybe a bit like a dictatorship..? uhh
idk I guess maybe people can have vote, but I have final say.
On a larger scale like the president, I would not choose to be leader
but 10-50 people I can manage
Are you coordinated? Do you enjoy working with your hands in some form?
Nope, constantly falling on shit.
I enjoy working with my hands. (art, rubiks cube) I have great development in fine motor skills.
Are you artistic?
Ive spent a whole lotta time on anatomy, perspective, values ect. So that I can mess it all up and play around
I enjoy drawing extreme faces and messy creatures.
but I can get very technical with my art. An art deco feel.
I loooove mandalas.
What's your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them?
My opinions..?
Past.. I have poor recollection of the past.
Present.. I tend to miss things in my environment and constantly have my girlfriend fill me in (shes an ISTJ hehe)
Future.. I think about a lot, but I dont plan
for much
How do you act when others request your help to do something (anything)?
I like helping people sometimes. I like teaching people more than I do just doing stuff for them. I want them to be able to do it on their own.
Do you need logical consistency in your life?
Yes..? I dont know what this means exactly. I like things to make sense. confusion bothers me a lot.
How important is efficiency to you?
I like efficiency, as in the quickest way to get somewhere while maintaining quality. This is mostly driven from laziness
Do you control others, even if indirectly?
Some people have said I do. I disagree.. I think its more me trying to place how I think onto them when they aren't making a lick of sense
maybe that is controlling now that I think about it
What is your learning style? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses?
I like creating a system of notes. I recently got into note taking inspired by Zettelkasten. I struggle learning in noisy environments. I need something preoccupy my brain like food or fidget's. I like all things mentioned, creativity not so much.
I like when information is given to me in a straightforward way, with examples. I can add interpretations later but I need the raw base foundation of information first.
How good are you at strategizing? Do you easily break up projects into manageable tasks?
I can do it.. doesnt mean I do. I procrastinate until the last minute most times. Im not sure why.
What are your aspirations in life, professionally and personally?
I dont know ? Every time I start to go down a path, I back out and dig a new one. Im hoping this doesn't last outside my teenage years, its like a constant rediscovery of myself and I hate it.
What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why?
Im afraid of dying a painful death. Im afraid of being casted out by others. I am afraid of living on the streets and loosing hope for life.
Maybe also.. being close to people. Eh
I dont know what I hate ? in a general sense I have no idea
What do the "highs" in your life look like?
I don't know, preferably I found routines that work for me and can set and work on goals
What do the "lows" in your life look like?
very emotional, desperate and lonely. But Ive always had a roof over my head and (for the most part) food on the table.
How attached are you to reality? Do you daydream often?
I dont think I daydream but I live in my head a lot. Like I said, I have little attention to the world around me, I can easily miss something that everyone else sees.
Imagine you are alone in a blank, empty room. There is nothing for you to do and no one to talk to. What do you think about?
Why the hell I am in the room and who the hell put me there
after a long while.. probably about my friends and family and if they're safe from this mysterious person
after a LOOONG while
probably if I am dead. is this the afterlife? is this all there is? does this confirm or deny a god?
How long do you take to make an important decision? And do you change your mind once you've made it?
Long time
Im a terrible decision maker
I can change my mind with new information, but If I've already put it in my note system its pretty much final.
How long do you take to process your emotions? How important are emotions in your life?
Not long. Ive gotten decently good with my emotional maturity.
Emotions arent something I try to pay attention too, but they are something that adds value to life.
Do you ever catch yourself agreeing with others just to appease them and keep the conversation going?
Sometimes. I hate it. Recently Ive been trying to stop people pleasing so much but now I come off as aggressive
Do you break rules often? Do you think authority should be challenged, or that they know better?
Finally last question. Props to anyone to actual read this whole thing, and thank you.
I dont break rules unless they are silly. I don't really try to challenge authority, I think they're important to keep things running.
I think I am (in order from most to least sure):
All I know for sure is Im definitely an IxxP

2023.03.22 07:29 SippinSoda320 Demon Radio. This happened at Walmart by the mall on 3/16.

Don’t judge me by what I’m about to say but…….
I smoked something I shouldn’t have. My brain was tuned to Demon Radio. I was hearing a demon speak to me all night long and all the next day. Telling me how I have 4 days to live. Then down to one. Then down to as soon I get home. Then I said the wrong things and it said I had 1 hour to kill myself or it’s going to take my family’s souls to hell. By this point I have been convinced this is real and really happening. It used my sisters voice to further manipulate me and I ended up driving my car really fast it said let go of the wheel I said no I’m not dying that way. I pull up to a shell by a couple beers and head towards Walmart. I have negotiated with the demon that knife will do. I chug most of a Budweiser (I don’t drink at all) park my crown vic right outside the welcome doors of Walmart and run inside the nearest sharpest object is a pizza cutter. All while telling myself I have to kill myself to save my family over and over. I rip open the packaging and look for a place where I won’t be bothered. Can’t find one. Stop looking. Running out of time. Sock aisle. Sit. Begin cutting left arm. Quick deep cuts down the street not across. Demon cheering me on. Deeper. Deeper. Faster. People are noticing. Do you need help? Are you ok? I’m fine leave me alone. I get up. Run towards dressing rooms. Run into a man. Arm severely wounded hemorrhaging blood. Bloody pizza cutter in on hand. He freezes. I check every dressing room door. All locked. Fuck. Running out of time. Pools and trails of heavy thick red blood marking everywhere I’ve been. Heads up. Security Guard. Quick walking towards exit now everything’s blurry. Pocket the pizza cutter so I don’t look like a maniac who is trying to hurt more than just himself. Blow past the receipt lady. Car’s right where I left it. Initially walk past the car but knew police would tie me to it if I survive, not only have I faked my family but I’ll have to deal with a dui. Open container, full beer. Get in the car and I throw both away. Drive off deeper into the parking lot. Park all fucked up. My dad calls me. Where are you? He witness a full length day of me talking to the demon he knew I wasn’t right. Walmart. Wyd? Saving you. Lala (my sister) is trying to call you. Ok I’ll call her. Call her. Break down can’t tell what’s real anymore. Phone dies. My conversation with my sister continues via the demon. (It used Lala’s voice) . My sister in my head telling me I fucked up I have to kill myself. Suddenly unconvinced that this is real. Fuck you! My sister would never tell me to kill myself! Look down at arm. Holy fucking shit what did I do. Cops swarm the area. Pizza cutter sits nexts to cigarettes. Cops pulls up. The whole right side of car is a wall. Window don’t go down door won’t open. He goes around . Hey man what’s going on . I’m saving my family. Don’t remember the convo too good but I tell him I’m teaching for a smoke while teaching without hesitation. I thought he’d get mad but I guess he realized I’m more a danger to myself than I am to him. He lets me smoke one. This entire time I’ve been pumping my fist in an effort to bleed out. Hey cop what time is it. 959. I was supposed to die a minute ago. Completely defeated I finished the cig and flick. I make my way out of the car. Frisk. Emts. Ambulance. Get tied down. I start talking shit to the demon. When all of sudden. Another voice soothing at first. Revealed to be the devil himself. “Taken a special interest in me”. Holy shit. Fear over 9000. Going insane in my head. My subconscious continues to disrespect and insult the devil. He beckons me to continue tell me everything. Visions of eternal suffering. I can’t make it stop. Fall asleep they say. When you wake up you will wake up in fire. Holy shit no. Been awake over 30 hours fighting off sedatives. Holy shit no. Get to the hospital. Completely insane. Strap down ripping straps. Eventually accept my fate. Decide to sleep but my subconscious has developed Tourette’s and is constantly insulting the devil. I bet I don’t mean it I can’t make it stop. He says my subconscious is just telling him everything it truly feels. He hangs on every word. Everytime I’m about to fall asleep my subconscious makes our situation worse. The first demon says your already in the deepest shithole you can be in just fall asleep. Holy shit no. Panic. Panic. Panic. More sedatives. Finally asleep. Wake up intermittently while receiving stitches. Ow. Fuck. Ow. “You think that hurts? Just you waiiiiiit”. Sleep. Darkness. Wake up. Hospital. Not on fire. Holy shit why am I here? I’m supposed to be dead. They lied. It wasn’t real. Arm? Stitched. They make their presence known. Holy shit it’s still happening. Why didn’t I die? You have to do it yourself. “Rip out your stitches and you will bleed to death” over and over and over and over . So I start ripping them. Can’t do it. Think of the suffering ahead of me . Find the strength. Rip one or two . Nurses notice. Sedatives & strap down . Wake up new stitches. Being transferred. Demons volume has gone down . Have a nice conversation with the emt about street fighter the entire ride to the psyche ward. Notice my gold bracelet is gone. Bummer. One last echo chamber, “your days are numbered”. Holy shit . Now at the psyche ward. Spent 3 1/2 days there . Each day tuning off of demon radio and coming back to human radio. Psyche ward is a whole other story. Get out family takes me to eat get me new clothes shoes haircut. Says they found a rehab ranch I’ll be spending a year in once my arm heals. Reconvince me of reality and say I was being manipulated. They were never in danger. The demons have tried to get you to kill yourself before but your too strong you’d never do that. Unless it meant you’d save your loved ones. You would do anything to save us. Even the one thing you’d never do. The demons hated you for your strong will. And used against you. We’re here your here. Let’s go get food. It. Wasn’t. Real. A day goes by. Then another. Now today. Got my stitches removed and healing pretty well. I cut really deep and pretty far. Who knew a pizza cutter could do that. Looking forward to the ranch rehab.

2023.03.22 07:26 gjp11 This is technically the first time Japan is officially baseball’s world champion.

I know this sounds dumb and weird. They won in 2006 and 2009 and they won the Olympics in 2021. How can this make sense?
Well here it goes.
So the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) which runs international baseball outside of the WBC (tho it sanctions it) is the sole entity recognized by the IOC to grant a country the title of “World Champion”.
From 1938-2011 this was done through the Baseball World Cup (known as the amateur World Series until 1988 when professional minor leaguers were allowed to play).
Japan never won that tournament. They came in 2nd in 1988 to Korea (that tournament ended up being the catalyst that got Baseball to its current state of popularity in Korea).
The 2006 and 2009 WBCs were played at a time when there was still the Baseball World Cup. There was one in 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011.
After the 2009 Classic the MLB suggested to the WBSC (then it was IBAF) to scrap the World Cup and make the WBC the official tournament that would grant the winner the title of world champion.
The WBSC agreed to that as long as there were qualifiers so that the tourney could be open to all teams. (Remember 06 and 09 had hand selected teams. There was no qualifying competition).
So the 2011 Baseball World Cup (won by the Kingdom of the Netherlands) was the final baseball World Cup as the WBSC discontinued it in favor of using the WBC to grant the title of world champion. (WBSC also introduced the premier 12 as a new flagship competition for the organization even though it doesn’t grant the winner the title of world champion.)
So This means the 2006 and 2009 WBCs didn’t grant that title. 2013 was the first time.
And since Japan had never won the baseball World Cup this means that until today Japan had never been, officially speaking, granted the title of “World Champion”.
Now they can finally, officially at least, say they are the world champions of baseball

2023.03.22 07:24 liliavacyn I Almost Gave Up on Day 1. Thanks to All of You, I Didn't.

My psychiatrist has been trying to get me to take Prozac for a while now. At first, I was adamant that if we could just get my previously undiagnosed and unmanaged ADHD under control, that the anxiety & depression was linked to it, and surely it would go away. So I was staunchly against it for that reason. However, even after having been on Adderall (IR) for a while, my insomnia & depression are still horrible and my psychiatrist is convinced it's the anxiety, despite that the thoughts keeping me up aren't actually anxious ones. I cannot take standard sleep medications (history of sleepwalking) and clonazepam doesn't even make me drowsy; all it does is stop my picking urges from my trichotillomania, which is why I'm continuing to take it (for now--she said the Prozac should also get rid of those urges).
I finally caved, and let her prescribe the Prozac for me. The first night was HELL. The worst heartburn I've ever experienced in my life; tightening in the chest, awful pain, burning esophagus, burping--the works (and I'm someone who had to stop taking ibuprofen years ago for my neck injury because of heartburn, so I know heartburn). I was miserable for over an hour just thinking about how I couldn't POSSIBLY put up with this for 4+ weeks while my body adjusted to the drug. I knew I didn't have it in me. But I took some Tums and drank a bunch of water and then I found this subreddit. I poked around. I read your experiences. I found a lot of advice. Someone recommended taking the Prozac literally inside a bite of food, others said drink a bunch of water with it. So tonight, I did that. I took the pill in between bites of my food, gulped down a lot of water to chase it, then ate the remainder of my meal. I have the Tums on standby, but I haven't needed them thus far. No burning. No tightening. My throat feels fine.
I just want to express my gratitude to this community for being here, and for sharing your experiences. Without you, I wouldn't have pushed through and given it another go. I'm not even sure yet if I'm taking it at the right time for me (can't tell if it makes me sleepy or jittery, though last night I did get drowsy after I took it), but because of this community, I'm going to stick with it and see if it finally quells my anxious mind.
Thank you, prozac. Even if you think you did nothing else today, you helped a stranger.

2023.03.22 07:23 lemondrop7723 I’m so scared. Is this endo?

Hi! First time poster. I’m feeling completely terrified and would love some feedback around my symptoms. I’ll keep it simple(ish).
Period Past: - Period started around 12. They were uncomfortable and HEAVY, but not very painful. - I started the pill around 15 to help with cramps, acne, and heavy flow. - Switched to IUD around 22. Removed at 24. - Worked on hormone health and had super simple periods and good health.
Period Present: - I’m now 32 and have my period every 27-28 days like clockwork. - I have two days of spotting, heavy-to-moderate flow for two days (heavy meaning I may change a Super tampon every 3-4 hours for about 12 hours), light for one day, spotting for two days - I recently got diagnosed with PMDD based solely on depression during my luteal phase. My doctor added some supplements and the depression is resolving quickly. - My cramps have gotten worse over the last year, from absolutely none to moderate now. I usually have a heating pad, ibuprofen, and stick to the couch for about half a day each period. I generally can weight lift and resume activities the rest of my period. I feel fluffy though.
Why I’m Concerned: - I had a random fertility assessment as I want to have kids soon (so desperately 🥺) and thought to get checked due to my age. I have a lot of follicles (27), but my AMH was on the lower end (1.09). I was not on my period during this test, which apparently can change things? She also said my uterine lining was thick (this was one week before my period). The doctor (not my primary gyn) mentioned looking into endometriosis. - During this assessment, they discovered two cysts: one was 2.9cm and the other was 1.5cm. I am unaware of any other cysts in my life. - One week later (last Friday, four days ago), on the first day of my period, I was cooking dinner and got lightheaded. This happens sometimes if I take an edible, so I just laid down. I did not have any cramps at the time. I then went upstairs to change my tampon and immediately felt immense pain…like a cramp from hell. I also felt like I had to poop so I tried and was about 50% productive. But the cramps kept coming and I was blacking out, fainting, screaming in pain, sweating all over my entire body, nauseous, lightheaded. Still trying to poop with little success. The cramps felt how I imagine contractions do…intense for 2-3 minutes, 30 seconds of relief, then again, repeating for about an hour. My husband drove me to the ER at this point as I’m still screaming in pain and couldn’t walk. It didn’t feel like stabbing pain, it felt like cramps deep in my body. - As soon as I get to the ER, I feel 98% fine. Of course. Felt totally fine the rest of the time - Ultrasound comes back normal, no fluid which rules out cyst rupture (I think). I never spoke to a doctor though, just discharged. - Some very light cramps the rest of my period and some abdominal discomfort. I was still able to weight lift the next day, run, and live normally. I felt (and feel) sore though. - Finished period/spotting today, still slightly sore. My mid-back feels sore, like it’s craving a massage. - Some constipation, although I’m having some BM. I just don’t feel fully relieved.
Other Thoughts: - I don’t have painful sex unless my partner hits a weird angle and then we resume (idk if that’s normal) - I can’t recall painful poops or pee…maybe? - I sometimes cramp around ovulation, though not significantly - I don’t spot bleed, although I did last year post-COVID vaxx for about 2 months
I have an OB/GYN appointment next week, but between this wild cramp episode, lingering discomfort that’s lasting longer than usual and a bit into my abdomen, concerning results from my fertility test, and the cysts (with no evidence of rupture), I’m really scared. My life has been a living hell the last 18 months and I’m finally feeling like myself again…until this.
Should I be concerned or am I overthinking?
Thank you. 🤍

2023.03.22 07:21 Other-Borderlands K♥️: Sanctuary [Part 1]

K♥️: Sanctuary [Part 1]
K♥️: Sanctuary [Part 1]
Venue: Church
This game is part of a series of games, where I am writing games for all 52 cards for a borderlands in the UK. Each one includes a story of how I imagine the game playing out. You can find all entries here.

Remaining Games
First Day of Exhibitions
He awaited his first lost sheep the morning the second round began. He stood at the churchyard gates, next to the sign he had put up the night before, which told players no external weaponry was permitted, and beneath read the name of the game, sanctuary, as well as a warning to players looking for a true game to visit the Jack or Queen of hearts.
He stood for half an hour after the start of the second phase, before a you man walked up to the gates, seeing him standing there.
“Hello my son! Do you wish to join my sanctuary, where we will live in peace with this world, free from future sin, to repent our past.” He said, and the man looked at him.
“Are you off your rocker?” The man said, and the King responded by pointing at his signs.
The man walked towards him, and into the churchyard.
“So what are the rules? What hab I got to do?” He asked.
“Nothing. Live here in harmony with god, and we will be forgiven. In this place you are given respite from the cruel games out there. While playing a game, your visa is frozen, and so by staying here you may live your life to the fullest.” The king explained, and the man turned.
“What? You mean this isn’t a game?” He asked.
“Well, of sorts. The game ends when I press the big red button on the church altar. The only rules are no violence, and no leaving the churchyard once you have entered.” He said.
The man tried to respond, but the King cut him off “Shall I give you a tour of the church?”
They walked inside, and the king showed him the area allocated to sleeping, rows upon rows of bunk beds in the main church hall. Further down, past the bunk beds, was a makeshift kitchen, with hobs, knives, chopping boards, everything one might need.
Next up, the King showed him his elaborate plans for the church, with various extra rooms in the church allocated to entertainment, medicine, etc, places in the churchyard for starting an allotment, a cabin, and some more projects.
They had plenty of food, materials and power stored, and they could easily create a self sustaining colony here. The more the pastor spoke, the more and more the man was convinced that this could truly become their home.
In a world of little hope, in the place where it was least expected to find some, the king of hearts, stood the hope of safety, and freedom from the games.
Once they had finished the tour, the king asked the man what he was best at, and what he would like to start work on.
“I’ve always enjoyed gardening…” The man said.
“Wonderful! I shall allocate you to the allotment to take care of our crops.” The King said, handing the man various equipment, as well as seeds, charts for what to plant next to each other, and sent him off to begin the work.
The King walked back to the churchyard gates, waiting another participant.
The sun rose higher in the sky, as a woman and two of her friends walked up.
“Who are you? You another participant?” She asked, and he responded.
“No, I am the King of hearts.” He took a bite from an apple. “This is sanctuary. Sanctuary from the games. If you step inside I can tell you more, but do not enter expecting a game like the others you have played.”
“I see the manipulation has already begun.” She said, stepping in, followed by her friends. “Right, tell me the rules.”
“The rules are simple. There is a button on the altar. If I press it, it is game clear for everyone. Violence and leaving the church premises are not permitted.” He said.
“What? That’s not a game!” She said.
“I did warn you before entering that this would not be like any of the other ‘games’ you have played.” The King said, “Now, should I show you around our colony?” He gave them a tour, showing them the bunks, the kitchen, the garden, the supplies, the whole church. As they walked, they began to feel the Kings silken word wrap around them, giving them hope. They were going to stay here, and spit in the face of whoever had created this cruel place. They would live together, in peace, until their deaths, within the church.
They all got to work, setting up the garden, improving the extra rooms, and they for the first time since they arrived here they truly felt free.
The King returned with his apple to the gate, awaiting more of gods children ready to join him in his colony in this uncaring world.
He had chosen to remain here, in this world of death and despair, as he felt it needed god more than any other. When he had been competing, it had been rumoured that the citizens were once players too, and after pulling through the King of hearts game, he decided he would stay, to bring god to the lives of the hopeless.
But this world made him even question the existence of god. He didn’t know how god could permit this, and all the countless other things in the old world continue to happen, yet held onto the hope that there was a god.
After all, why else would he have created this place?
Two more friends approached the venue, and the King told them as much as he was permitted to about the game. He had a thought, and brought one of the others of his colony to the gate, to tell them about the nature of this game.
This brought on the trust of the players, and he told them to spread the news that this place was a sanctuary.
They walked off, but he doubted that they would be believed, as he looked at the blimp above the church, the King of hearts waving in the wind. The idea that he would be a master of manipulation meant nobody would believe his good will until they enter the venue themselves, or at least got close.
Over the course of the day, two more people joined the colony, and as the sun went down he surveyed the progress that had been made. They had started their garden, meaning they would soon have self sufficient food supplies, likely soon after all that was already stored in the church ran out.
At around lunch time one person had begun working on a large soup, with carrots, potatoes, onions, and all of them graciously ate it, their first proper meal in weeks, maybe even months.
They then began to tell stories, in the well lit church, about their time here. The King gave them as much about him as they were permitted to know, and they were soon joined by one more person, who the King welcomed, and explained everything to.
Eventually they all went to sleep, free from the fear of ever having to participate in a game again.
The King surveyed his colonists, happy that they had all adapted to life here so easily. This place, while not perfect, was a veritable paradise compared to the world beyond the churchyard walls, and he was glad the others appreciated the effort he had put into it, and the effort they would put into it. He had intentionally made sure there was still plenty of work to be done to improve the church, as to stifle boredom. He had planned every detail, and knew it was perfect.
Second Day of Exhibitions
They woke up early, ready to continue the future of his utopia. They got to work on various projects, such as the allotment, and someone began work on the games room he had planned.
He helped out I the kitchen too, cutting veg and preparing meals for the day. He was cooking another soup today, while their vegetables were still few in number.
Over the course of the day more arrived, and he welcomed them. They were at first suspicious of his utopia, but he managed to convince them that this was for the greater good.
The Day was fruitful, and soon they had planted various vegetables, and were growing potatoes, carrots, onions, peppers, tomatoes, as well as various fruits. He congratulated the gardeners, and then he checked out the games room.
It had been redecorated, and the Games organised. In fact, it had been done so quick the others had started work on the library, organising all of the books carefully in order of genre and author surname.
This place was becoming more and more like the Utopia he envisioned.
He poured some oil into the pan, before tipping in his diced onion, frying them a little, before adding water to boil the carrots and potatoes he had stocked up in. He made some vegetable stock from a pack he had in his spice cupboard, and with the help of the other cooks, they now had a meal for al of them. They filled it into bowls, handing them out to everyone in the church’s sanctuary, and they each ate gratefully, thanking him for his work, as well as the kindness of establishing this place.
They began to talk over such about what they had done so far.
“So, the allotment is looking good at the moment. By the time our stocked food will have run out, we should be swimming in produce of our own growing. Also, this soup is really nice Noah, you and the cooks did a great job!” The Gardener said, and Noah nodded, saying he couldn’t have achieved this without them.
The room brimmed with happiness, at the salvation these people had found in this world. That this was the way forward, the way to continued prosperity.
“Well, I improved the games room. That billiards table was a good idea Noah. Thanks also for bringing in so many board games and sets of cards. While we may not have always enjoyed them in the old world, I’m sure here they will become classics quickly, and we will play them till old age. Also, as you said earlier, I checked from the roof to see how many other cards are left. It looks like the King of Clubs, Queen of Spades, and Jack of Diamonds went down yesterday.” The Woman said.
“Thank you for informing me. We should hope and pray for those we have lost, they are now in a better place.” Noah said.
They continued to talk over their food, and just before they were about to return to work, a woman walked in through the doors.
“Hello, my child, welcome to sanctuary!” Noah said.
“Yeah yeah, quit the bullshit, tell me the rules.” She said.
“Well, The ‘game’ is simple. The game end when I press that button on the altar over there, willingly. Otherwise, you mustn’t leave the game venue, or act violently.” Noah explained. “This place is a sanctuary from the outside world. A refuge for those who have been crushed by the horrors of the Games.”
“What? What about Visas?” The Woman said confused.
“While in a game, your visa does not decrease. This place gives you time to live the rest of your days out, without the threat of the laser. This place is my Ark, if you will.” The King said, pointing to the church.
“This world makes it appear as if you must kill others to survive. That is not true. If you can resist the temptations of this world, you will receive salvation.”
Noah then gave the woman a tour of the grounds, before asking her what she wished to do. She ended up working in the garden, and Noah returned to the gates, to welcome any possible new colonists.
His sanctuary was coming to life, an example of how humans can collaborate and triumph in a world without hope.
No new people arrived after Sandra interrupted them at lunch, and the King gathered everyone around for tea and began to tell stories about his experiences.
“When I came to this world, I realised how important it was to trust god. I played the games set up by the old Kings, Queens and Knaves. They slowly fell, and when We had finally defeated them all, we were offered a choice by the ruler of this land. Stay, and accept citizenship, or decline. I accepted, to allow this land, a land without god, to see the light of good, and forge a beacon of hope for all who came.” Noah said, as his followers watched intently, and he began to recall his first games, the Jack and King of hearts, and how in the King game he had saved a young man, who grew to become the King of Clubs.
It became later and later, and Noah advised them to go to bed, telling them he would continue to tell them about his experiences the next day, and then the others could tell them theirs.
Third Day of Exhibitions
On the third day only one blimp went down, that of the Queen of Clubs.
Noah awoke bright and early, ready for the day. He slowly got everyone else up, while preparing breakfast. They ate in their own time, before leaving to go out and work.
Noah walked to the gates, apple in hand. He waited there for a few minutes, and watched as some new followers-to-be began to arrive.
He introduced himself, giving his regular explanation, and before they stepped inside, was backed up by one of the gardeners, who happened to be walking past. The group stepped inside, introducing themselves as Alfie, Tracy and Roger, a group that had beaten the King of Clubs together.
“A shame. The King of Clubs was a good man.” Noah said, leading them into the main hall.
“He definitely wasn’t what I expected from a King, to say the least.” Tracy said. “Neither are you.”
“The manipulation is still to come.” Alfie said, not trusting Noah.
“Well, I can assure you that I have all of the residents of this countries best interests in mind. We could live here for many years without problem. Just ask any of the other players that have stayed with us for a while, they all trust me.” Noah countered.
He walked up to the altar.
“This here is the game clear condition. If I press it, I die, and our colony is terminated. The game ends, everyone gets a game clear. I have no intention of doing so.” Noah said.
“So you are our jailor.” Alfie said to him.
“If you need to see it that way, yes.” Noah said. “But in truth I am your saviour. Without me you would soon be playing another game. You would live in fear of your life. Here, that all fades away. You regain free time, as you need to care less and less about your own survival. Don’t you see the utopia we will forge?”
Alfie shrugged.
“Now, if you will please allow me to ask what jobs you would be comfortable doing…” He asked.
He got them all started on their tasks, and the day went smoothly. He spent a while talking with Roger as they prepared food, talking about his life, and soon they called everyone in for Lunch.
In the meantime, tracy had begun speaking to Sandra, and learned about her. Alfie, on the other hand, had remained distant from the others, refusing to participate in work.
He walked over to Roger and Tracy while they were eating their food.
“Don’t you find this a little suspicious? He’s way to kind for someone who’s gone through what we’ve been through. I don’t trust this guy one bit.” Alfie said.
“Why, all he’s done is be nice to us!?” Tracy said. “He’s forged a home for us in this uncaring world. How can you disagree with that?”
“He’s already gotten to you. Don’t you see? He’s indoctrinating you. This is a cult!” Alfie protested, perhaps a little too loud.
“Now, how about we all calm down a little.” Noah said, walking over. “I see our new member wishes to leave. Trust me Alfie, it’s Alfie right? This place will be our beacon of hope, our zone of safety. Please, don’t fight us. It’ll only harm you.”
Alfie nodded, but still had a scowl fixed on his face.
“Good. Now, how about we all return to work, and reconvene later for tea.” He said, walking away.
The others returned to work, and Alfie was left alone in the Hall.
Noah turned. “You should also get to work. It won’t reflect well on you if you eat our food but don’t help out.”
Roger had by this point returned to the garden. He liked gardening, and had constantly recommended the performers establish one while they were still in large numbers, so they would have a continued food supply. He gave up on the idea after continued rejection, and the dwindling number of performers meant there was almost no point, they all believed they would die anyway.
But now he had a communal garden, where he could help a group of people he cared about. He dug, and planted some seeds. They were almost out of the space allocated. Oh well, they would always need to attend to plants to help them grow. He wasn’t sure how well they would grow in this strange climate, but he held out hope.
He spent the hours until dusk in the garden with a man who claimed he was the first to join Noah. They exchanged trivial details about their lives, as well as their time in this land. They both admired Noah for his ability to create hop in a world without it, and how he kept order in a world seemingly without any.
When they gathered around for Noah’s story and food, they listened intently, hearing about his exploits during his time as a player, how he had helped those in need. How he had not killed anyone during his time as a player.
Alfie watched from afar, seeing how the group worshiped the ground he walked on. Why couldn’t anyone but him see it?

2023.03.22 07:19 TRNoGood Bring Back Multiplayer Experiences Like In Unity

Good Day, I write to you all today to bring up a hushed topic among the AC community as well as Ubisoft themselves. I have commented multiple times on AC's Tiktok videos questioning and asking for a hopeful return of multiplayer in their upcoming release AC Mirage. Some may not feel the same, but speaking for myself, AC Unity's Multiplayer was by far the best we have seen in years. The fans of Unity have been as dedicated as to plead with Ubisoft until servers were eventually fixed for Multiplayer. AC Unity also far exceeded prior releases with the overall control, and fluidness of the free-running. Another highly regarded feature of Unity was the MultiplayeCo-Op. It was the first game that allowed you and your friends, as well as fans around the world to experience, and run missions for the brotherhood together. I know they promise to bring free-running back that matches, if not exceeds Unity; however, there has been no multiplayer in the past 3-4 releases. I hope this reaches the right people so we can stand together to bring back the beloved multiplayer that we all enjoyed. My final closing regards are hopes that one day AC can be returned to the moments of allowing bonds to be built together while slaying Templars.
Nothing is True; Everything is Permitted. Happy Hunting Assassins.

2023.03.22 07:17 worldominator General sale for Melbourne tickets tomorrow?

Tried buying today and I thought it was going alright initially, but I was on public transport and went through a tunnel, so my data stuttered for like 10 seconds. Next thing I know I’m finally out of the queue, but every ticket is sold out. This was at around 10:08 or something like that, the point being it took not even 10 minutes. I was super bummed obviously but thought I’d try my luck tomorrow and went about my day. But I’m hearing from some friends on instagram and twitter that they pushed the general sale up early and that’s completely out too??
Can anyone verify this? And how likely are they to add more dates? I think they’d be stupid not too seeing as the demand is clearly there.
