2023.03.22 14:28 croatiancashgang Teams you should watch 2023

CSKA Sofia stadium in the heart of the Bulgarian Capital
CSKA Sofia has had a recent renaissance having being first in the Bulgarian 1st League as it stands overcoming serial winners Ludogorets whilst only losing 2 games this season. The owners in recent season have been overly optimistic and want CSKA Sofia to be the Best of the Rest in Eastern Europe a position occupied by Shakhtar Donetsk and Zenit St Petersburg (the latter being banned from UEFA Competition). CSKA last season hired Alan Pardew the former West Ham United and Reading coach and he only left due to the ultras despicable racist chants towards black players in the squad! This season CSKA Sofia are 1st in the league 4 points ahead of Ludogorets and CSKA Sofia play an attractive brand of football that can hardly be seen anywhere else in Eastern Europe football. They are also in the quarterfinals of the Bulgarian Cup where they play Cherno More and in 2023 they will be an entertaining side to watch and follow.
  1. SC Dnipro-1
Oleksandr Pikhalyonok winner vs Veres Rivine
Ukrainian clubs have suffered since 2014 with many teams being liquidated or being run with low budgets. This is one of the reasons why the Ukrainian Premier League is less competitive with all by one Ukrainian Premier League trophies being won by Dynamo Kyiv or Shakhtar Donetsk (undeniable the best two in the country) with the other Ukrainian team to do it FC Simferopol being liquidated. I have followed SC Dnipro-1 since August and I saw their rise because as of December 2022, SC Dnipro-1 topped the Ukrainian Premier League. In fact SC Dnipro-1 won both Dynamo Kyiv and Shakhtar and only had their only loss in 2022 against Krvbas Krvyii Rih another club located in the Dnipro Oblast. In 2023 the team has slowed down a bit crashing out of the Europa Conference League to AEK Larnica 1-0 on aggregate. Also since the Ukrainian Premier League has restarted SC Dnipro-1 has only won one of their last three games which was against Veres Rivine. Still they haven't lost their flare and with the Burnley and Nottingham Forest linked Dovbyk, 2016 Sudamericana winner Domingo Blanco and Oleksandr Pikhalyonok they look likely to regain the top spot in the Ukraine Premier Leauge or at least qualify for the Champions League in the first time in their history.
  1. Union Berlin
Union Berlin managed to salvage a point vs league leaders Bayern Munich
It is almost impossible for a real football fan to make this list without brining in Union Berlin into the conversation. In less than 15 years Union has come back from the 3. Liga to competing in the Bundesliga and challenging for the Bundesliga title. The East Berlin side has finished 11th, 7th and 5th in the last 3 Bundesliga seasons they have competed in and by the rate of their improvement this season they are just just five points off 1st place Dortmund and if the last 3 Bundesliga suggest something it is the fact that they can win the Bundesliga or at least qualify for the Champions League. Union has lost less games this season than Dortmund and has humbled the likes of RB Leipzig, Dortmund and Ajax showing that they are a strong side not to be messed with. However just like Dnipro-1 they crashed out of the Europe in shameful fashion losing 6-3 to Union Saint Galliose in the Europa League last 16. Union boasts the likes of Becker who scored 7 goals this season as well as Frederik Rønnow who has made key saves in this season. Time will tell if Union Berlin will win the league but they are a fun team to watch.
  1. Lazio
Lazio wins 1-0 in the Derby Della Capitale vs Roma
As a Lazio fan I know that watching this club is annoying if you are a fan. Lazio keeps losing to small teams they should beat but Lazio compensates this by having huge wins against huge teams such as Roma, Napoli (only one of two teams to beat Napoli this season), Inter Milan, AC Milan and Atalanta. Yes Lazio really did score 4 goals against the reigning champions AC Milan! Unfortunately Lazio is the only team in this list who cannot win anything even though they are second in Serie A but are almost 20 points away from Napoli. Lazio also got knocked out of the Coppa Italia by Juve and are out of the Europa League after coming 3rd in a group where everyone one got 8 points but only Midtjylland and Feyenoord qualified with Lazio coming third and the Austrian team Strum Graz being knocked out all together (I feel bad for Strum Graz). By the way watching Lazio as a neutral is interesting as they play from the back and have the most clean sheets in Serie A. Lazio hasn't been scoring as much as last season but that doesn't mean Lazio cannot wrap up some thrillers. Overall Lazio is such a tough team that even Napoli looked like school boys when they played against Lazio. I just pray you don't view my inclusion of Lazio as nepotism but you feel this as me actually being fair.
  1. S.S.C. Napoli
Napoli in the Champions League
The only Champions League to make this list, Napoli is going to be the most interesting team to watch in the Champions League this season. Napoli would be the first Southern Italian side to win the Serie A in almost 33 years and it seems done and dusted as Napoli are 19 points away from 2nd place Lazio and it seems that Lazio will have a league and European double. Napoli this season has only lost to four teams which are 2nd place Lazio, 3rd place Inter, last place Cremonese who only have 1 Serie A win but who knocked out Napoli in the Coppa Italia and Liverpool. Napoli play an attractive brand of football with Kravaskelia dribbling catching the eye of many big teams in Europe and Hirving Lozano assisting him on the other side of the wing and these two turn provider for Victor Osihmen who has scored 21 goals. Napoli have a tough bench and has a decent defense with Kim Min Jae eye catching performances in Serie A. However time will tell if Napoli will win the Champions Leauge as the Serie A already have Napoli name written on it.

2023.03.22 13:30 JoJo-Bizarre-1997 Thought about the Big Five of Asia - which countries can make further push in the FIFA World Cup?

Thought about the Big Five of Asia - which countries can make further push in the FIFA World Cup?
Talk about Asia, I think you know about the Big Five - the five AFC nations to have competed frequently in FIFA World Cup. They are Iran, South Korea, Japan, Saudi Arabia and the newcomer Australia. These countries accounted for over 36 FIFA World Cup appearances for Asia (though two of them were originally for Oceania). They are also perceived to be the only forces in Asia that can reckon the World Cup, at least by their merits of performances.
So, dear users, who do you expect to make further push in the FIFA World Cup in the future, for instance 2026 and 2030?
South Korea

With 11 appearances and finished fourth once, South Korea cements as the most and richest records of Asian teams in the FIFA World Cup. The country also won two Asian Cups, all in the inaugural editions.
South Korea has impressed the world with the country's rapid economic development in the aftermath of the Korean War. Back in 1960s, South Korea's GDP/per capita was equal to many Sub-Saharan African countries, and only few decades later, the country has become one of the wealthiest in the world.
This can also be said the same about football, although it was far from easy at the first place. South Korea qualified for the 1954 FIFA World Cup, the first time an Asian country qualified by its merit (Dutch East Indies/Indonesia qualified in 1938 due to Japan's withdrawal). In that World Cup though, South Korea was thrashed by Hungary and Turkey at the group stage. It took the Koreans 32 years later to make its second appearance in Mexico 1986, and has never missed a single edition since. Yet not until 2002, when the World Cup was hosted at home soil, that South Korea would register its first win, a 2-0 win over Poland in their eventual (though controversial) fourth place finish.
Since that World Cup, South Korea has been consistent, though sometimes troublesome, in qualifying to the FIFA World Cup. However, South Korea only replicated the knockout stage feat only two more other times, in 2010 and recent 2022. In both tournaments, South Korea found itself tragically ended by South American opponents, in South Africa, they lost to Uruguay; in Qatar, they lost to Brazil; all in the round of sixteen.
The Asian giant is eager to be better in the next World Cups and, with the expansion to 48 teams starting with 2026 edition, South Korea's route is more open than ever. The country has also been able to export their successful domestic products that gained fames across the globe like Park Ji-sung and recently Son Heung-min. Yet if the country ever wants to repeat the 2002 feat, they will need to work harder to achieve their goals.

Japan's rise is even more fascinating to even neutral watchers. For most of Japan's history in relations with football, the sport was relegated mainly to an amateur status and Japanese public could not care less about football. The main sport in Japan was baseball.
However, some notable events changed the course of Japanese football. First, the introduction of renowned Japanese manga Captain Tsubasa inspired numerous Japanese and even foreign legends to take up the ball. Second, the establishment of the Japan Professional Football League, also known as J.League in 1991, reshaped Japan's relations with football forever. Their impacts are relevant to even today. If in the 1980s, football was still a strange sport for Japanese, then in just only a short span of time since 1991, Japan quickly became the dominant Asian power. The country won four Asian Cup titles, the most, and has never failed to qualify for a World Cup since 1998, Japan's debut.
The rapid rise of Japan as an Asian powerhouse and a consistent World Cup performer stunned everyone about how quick the country could be. Moreover, ever since their hard-fought qualification for the World Cup in 1998, Japan always managed to qualify automatically by finishing in top two. Yet Japan's rise in football was overshadowed by a string of bad luck in the round of sixteen; since Japan's debut in 1998, Japan reached the last sixteen four times, but were all eliminated in agonising fashion to Turkey, Paraguay, Belgium and Croatia.
Nonetheless, the increasing quality of Japanese football has been able to attract European clubs and numerous Japanese players since Hidetoshi Nakata have been able to establish their foothold in Europe. Names like Keisuke Honda, Shinji Kagawa to even now Takehiro Tomiyasu and Kaoru Mitoma are the evidences of Japan's rapid rise and how a good strategy can impact positively in long term. The 2022 FIFA World Cup, a tournament where Japan ran riots with two shock wins over Germany and Spain, embodied this. Unfortunately, with the round of sixteen curse continues to haunt Japanese players, they need to find the way to overcome them if Japan ever wishes to be in the quarter-finals for the first time ever.

Australia's status has long been a matter of debate. The country is geographically Oceanian, but culturally European. For quite a long time, Australia's football development had been hampered by their geography and OFC membership, a key reason why football isn't Australia's most popular sport for a long time.
Australia made only two entrance to the FIFA World Cup as a member of the OFC, first in 1974 and last in 2006. It was 2006 that Australia finally got acceptance as an AFC member, a wish fulfilled for many Australians, including from their late legend John Warren. Since joining Asia, Australia has become one of the rare Asian sides that can compete in the FIFA World Cup and, also, a new powerhouse of the continent. Australia had also won one Asian Cup in 2015 as the host nation, the only country to win in two separate confederates.
Yet unlike Japan, Australia's rise isn't rapid and quite troubling. As Australia's top league doesn't include promotion and relegation (though debates about it have risen for years), Australia's way of football development has not been maximised. Moreover, despite its status as an Asian powerhouse, many Asians still question if Australia can ever contribute something to Asia. In fact, two recent World Cups saw Australia qualify only by the playoff merits. However, Australia has proven stubborn as a force in the FIFA World Cup. Under Guus Hiddink in 2006, Australia reached the last sixteen for the first time, before being ended by eventual winner Italy. It took 16 years before Graham Arnold, who presided in one of Australia's poorest qualification performances, to repeat it again in Qatar 2022 as the best ever with six points at the group stage, before ended by another eventual winner, Argentina.
Australia is facing a new prospect that could be the game changer to football across the nation. As football is experiencing a resurgence following the World Cup in Qatar, and with the country about to host the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup, the first major senior FIFA event in the nation, Australia will need to capitalise on it as soon as possible. Australians want to see more from their Socceroos, instead of just struggling to qualify by playoffs, as happened with two near death experiences, if they ever want to be in North America and subsequent World Cup.
Saudi Arabia

The oil-rich monarchy in West Asia has been able to establish itself a superpower in Asia and three consecutive Asian Cup titles proved it was no joke. Massive oil money has also financed Saudi Arabia's development of infrastructures and this greatly benefited the Kingdom on its path to become a consistent World Cup performer. Saudi Arabia qualified to their maiden appearance in the United States 1994, before doing it again for five other editions.
Yet for all instances of Saudi Arabia's massive wealth, the Kingdom only emerged from the group stage just once, in 1994. This was a phenomenal tournament of Saudi Arabia as Saeed Al-Owairan scored a beautiful goal against already-qualified Belgium to secure a historic shock 1-0 win over the European side, to sit second and reached the knockout stage in their debut. Saudi Arabia had come so close for a second knockout stage appearance in neighbouring Qatar 2022, where the Kingdom wrote one of its greatest chapters, a shock 2-1 win over eventual champions Argentina that, had the Falcons qualified, would have been remembered for decades; unfortunately, Poland and Mexico butchered that hope to condemn the Kingdom to a tragic bottom place exit in what was described as a huge missed opportunity, an exit that Salem Al-Dawsari, the hero against Argentina, bursted to tears for his country's failure, a moment captured by Arab media.
Criticism does run against Saudi Arabia though. Many commentators and even Saudi legends had condemned the government's protectionist policy, which was blamed for Saudi Arabia's failure to advance from their 1994 success. As far as 2002, the worst World Cup in Saudi history, legendary striker Sami Al-Jaber had condemned the government for trying to keep players at home rather than allowing footballers to go abroad. Moreover, there are concerns that Saudi Arabia is now chasing over profits rather than developing youth footballers after their lavish signing of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Whatever happens next to Saudi Arabia is for us to guess. Yet the Kingdom is now facing a daunting prospect of repeating the 1994 feat in 2026 and maybe 2030, ending their knockout drought. This is no easy mission however, as Saudi Arabia is preparing to fix the mess with the 2026 FIFA World Cup on sight with their coach Herve Renard, whose position remains in limbo due to recent attempt by FFF to get him as manager of the French women's team. As a hegemon of Asian football, if Saudi Arabia cannot do well in the next World Cups, its status will be severely damaged.

Iran is unique among the Asian powerhouses that is the only one to have never advanced past the group stage in every World Cup competition, yet also being the only Asian team in to have participated, and never, left the World Cup without a point, a fascinating difference considering Iran has played in six World Cups.
Iran is the fourth country in Asia to have played in the FIFA World Cup (fifth if counting Australia), and in their maiden appearance, Iran snatched a point from a 1-1 draw to Scotland. However, it took Iran two decades before returning to the World Cup in 1998, where they gained a historic 2-1 win over nemesis United States. Yet not until Carlos Queiroz's era that Iran finally found stability to take more World Cup participation, as they qualified for three consecutive World Cup since 2014, the first time Iran did so. Still, Iran could only win two other next matches, against Morocco (1-0) and Wales (2-0).
Iran has been unfortunate to be plagued by political turmoil at home. As for the result, Iran had underachieved at senior level, especially since 1979 when the Islamic regime took power from the Shah. The recent 2022 FIFA World Cup, where Iran's current generation reached its golden age, was tragically messed up by nationwide unrest related to the death of Mahsa Amini, is such of an example of how politics beset Iranian football. The Iranian regime is also accused of holding Iranian football potential back due to their constant interference and fear of public uprisings.
Now, Iran is led by a new coach, Ardeshir Ghalenoei, who coached Iran back in the 2007 AFC Asian Cup, and Ghalenoei faces a daunting challenge to help Iran to overcome their group stage curse. However, Iranian football, long beset by political interference and widespread corruption, may have to wait for a longer time to progress from the group stage.
Can any of them perform better in 2026 or 2030 FIFA World Cup? And if so, how?

2023.03.22 12:33 Tall_Strategy_2370 Admissions Accomplished - UPDATED - Part 2

See link below for Part 1- Reddit - Dive into anything
I hope everyone enjoys this story. I worked on condensing what I wrote the past few weeks and changed some things about the characters - I personally like this story arcs better.
TL;DR of where they go to college at the end.
Chapter 5: RD Results and Final Decisions Matthew It was a typical afternoon at the Green Hills High School library, and Matthew was sitting at one of the tables with his laptop, anxiously refreshing his email. Today was the day he would receive his regular admissions college results. He knew his life was about to change drastically, and he couldn't help but feel a mixture of excitement and dread as he awaited the news.
One by one, the emails started to come in. Matthew held his breath as he clicked on each of them, revealing the decisions that would shape his future. As he opened each email, he was met with a series of acceptances: Columbia, Princeton, Duke, UPenn, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Carnegie Mellon, SUNY Binghamton, and SUNY Stony Brook. He was waitlisted at Harvard and Caltech but rejected at MIT, Stanford, and Yale.
Matthew's heart raced as he read through the acceptance letters, hardly believing the incredible opportunities that were now within his reach. He couldn't help but feel a sense of pride and accomplishment, knowing that all his hard work and dedication had paid off.
The email from Columbia caught his eye, and he opened it with particular interest. As he read through the letter, he discovered that not only had he been accepted, but he had also received an excellent financial aid package and had been accepted into Columbia's Undergraduate Scholars Program (CUSP). Matthew's eyes widened in disbelief, realizing that attending his dream school was now a genuine possibility.
As the news began to sink in, Matthew called his parents to share the exciting results. They were ecstatic, congratulating him on his incredible achievements and assuring him that they would support him in whichever decision he made.
Over the next few days, Matthew carefully considered his options, discussing them with his family, teachers, and friends. As he weighed the pros and cons, he found himself drawn to Columbia again and again. Its vibrant urban location, prestigious academic reputation, and the incredible financial aid package made it the perfect fit for him.
With a deep breath, Matthew finally made his decision. He clicked the "accept" button on Columbia's online portal, sealing his commitment to attend the university in the fall. A sense of relief and excitement washed over him, knowing that he was about to embark on a new journey that would shape the rest of his life.
In the following days, Matthew shared the news with his friends at Green Hills High School, who were thrilled for him and eager to hear about his decision. As they celebrated together, Matthew couldn't help but feel grateful for the support and encouragement he had received from his friends and family throughout the entire college application process. And as he looked forward to the future, he knew that he was ready to take on the challenges and opportunities that awaited him at Columbia University.
Priya It was the day that Priya had been anxiously waiting for since she was deferred from Brown Early Decision. As she sat in her bedroom, her hands trembling slightly, she mustered the courage to check her email for the regular admissions decisions. Her heart raced as the notifications started to pour in, each one carrying the potential to change her life forever.
Taking a deep breath, Priya opened the first email, revealing an acceptance from Brown. Her eyes widened in disbelief, a surge of joy and relief washing over her. She continued to read through the other acceptance letters, receiving offers from Cornell, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, Emory, UC-Berkeley, UVA, SUNY Binghamton, and SUNY Stony Brook.
However, the waitlist notifications soon followed. Priya was waitlisted at Harvard, Duke, UChicago, Northwestern, UCLA, NYU, Wash U, and Northeastern. Despite her impressive list of acceptances, the weight of the waitlist decisions stung. She closed the final batch of emails, revealing rejections from Stanford, Yale, Princeton, and U Penn.
Overwhelmed with emotion, Priya took a moment to process the whirlwind of news. She called her parents into her room and shared the results with them. They hugged her tightly, expressing their pride and assuring her that they would support any decision she made.
As the days passed, Priya carefully weighed her options, discussing them with her family, teachers, and friends. She revisited her Brown acceptance letter repeatedly, her heart fluttering with excitement each time she read it. Brown had always been her dream school, and now it was within reach.
After much thought and deliberation, Priya knew where she belonged. With newfound confidence and excitement, she logged into Brown's online portal and clicked the "accept" button. It was official; she was going to be part of the Brown University community.
Sharing the news with her friends at Green Hills High School, Priya found comfort and encouragement in their enthusiasm and support. They celebrated her decision to attend Brown, knowing that she had found the perfect place to continue her education and pursue her passion for social justice.
As Priya looked forward to her future at Brown, she felt a deep sense of gratitude for the love and support she had received throughout the entire college application process. Her friends and family had been her rock, and she couldn't wait to embark on this new journey with their encouragement behind her.
Minho Minho had already received his acceptance to MIT Early Action, but that didn't stop him from feeling anxious as he waited for the rest of his regular admissions decisions. Sitting in his room, he watched his email notifications with bated breath, eager to learn the outcomes of his other applications.
As the emails rolled in, Minho began to open them one by one. He was thrilled to see acceptance letters from Caltech, Carnegie Mellon, UC-Berkeley, Georgia Tech, Purdue, UCSD, and SUNY Stony Brook. His excitement grew as he realized the breadth of his accomplishments and the opportunities that lay before him.
However, the waitlist notifications soon followed, and Minho discovered that he had been placed on the waitlists for Columbia, Cornell, and Northeastern. He couldn't help but feel a twinge of disappointment, but his spirits remained high, buoyed by his impressive list of acceptances.
The final email revealed a rejection from Stanford. Though it stung to see the "we regret to inform you" message, Minho took the news in stride, knowing that he had already been accepted to his dream school, MIT.
Over the next few days, Minho carefully considered his options. Though he had several fantastic schools to choose from, MIT had always been his top choice. Its strong computer science program, rigorous academics, and prestigious reputation aligned perfectly with his aspirations as a future software engineer.
Minho shared his decision with his friends and family, who congratulated him on his incredible achievements. They knew that MIT was the perfect place for Minho to thrive, and they couldn't be more proud of him.
With excitement and anticipation, Minho officially accepted his offer to attend MIT. As he looked forward to the incredible opportunities that awaited him, Minho felt a deep sense of gratitude for the support and encouragement he had received throughout his journey. He couldn't wait to embark on this new chapter of his life and continue to reach for the stars at MIT.
Alex Alex had already been deferred from Stanford Early Action, and he couldn't help but feel anxious as he awaited the results of his regular admissions decisions. Sitting alone in his room, he stared at his computer screen, watching his email notifications pop up one by one.
Taking a deep breath, Alex began to open each email. He was delighted to find acceptance letters from Northwestern, Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, Notre Dame, UCLA, UVA, UMich, Georgia Tech, NYU, SUNY Binghamton, and SUNY Stony Brook. Alex couldn't help but smile at the thought of his accomplishments and the range of opportunities that lay ahead of him.
However, Alex's excitement was tempered by the waitlist notifications that followed. He had been placed on the waitlists for Stanford, Yale, Duke, UPenn, UC-Berkeley, and Carnegie Mellon. Despite his initial disappointment, he reminded himself of the many fantastic schools that had already accepted him.
The final emails revealed rejections from Harvard, MIT, Princeton, Caltech, Columbia, UChicago, Brown, Dartmouth, and Cornell. Although it stung to see the "we regret to inform you" messages, Alex remained optimistic, focusing on the positive outcomes he had received.
Over the next few days, Alex carefully considered his options. He researched each school in depth, attending virtual tours and reading about their academic programs and campus life. Eventually, Alex found himself drawn to Northwestern, with its strong engineering program and beautiful campus near Chicago.
After discussing his decision with his family and friends, Alex decided to commit to Northwestern. He knew that the university would provide him with excellent opportunities to grow academically and personally while pursuing his passion for math and science.
With a mixture of excitement and relief, Alex accepted his offer to attend Northwestern. As he looked forward to the challenges and adventures that awaited him, he felt a deep sense of gratitude for the support and encouragement he had received from those around him. He couldn't wait to embark on the next chapter of his life at Northwestern, where he was eager to make his mark and seize every opportunity that came his way.
Raj Raj had already faced rejection from Yale Early Action, but he knew that he still had plenty of opportunities ahead. He sat at his desk, clutching his phone with anticipation as he waited for the regular admissions decisions to appear in his inbox.
With a mix of excitement and apprehension, Raj began to open each email. His face lit up as he read the acceptance letters from UPenn's prestigious Wharton School, UChicago, Northwestern, Carnegie Mellon, UC-Berkeley, UCLA, USC, NYU, and SUNY Binghamton. Raj was proud of his achievements and felt grateful for the wide array of options he now had to consider.
Next, Raj opened his waitlist notifications. He had been placed on the waitlists for Princeton, Columbia, Brown, Cornell, Vanderbilt, Johns Hopkins, UMich, and Northeastern. While he couldn't help but feel a pang of disappointment, he knew that he had already received some impressive acceptances.
Lastly, Raj confronted the rejection letters from Harvard, Stanford, and Duke. He reminded himself that rejection was a natural part of the college admissions process and that he had still accomplished a great deal.
Over the next few days, Raj spent hours comparing the schools he had been accepted to, looking into their academic programs, extracurricular activities, and overall campus culture. As he researched and reflected, Raj found himself increasingly drawn to the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. With its world-renowned business program and bustling urban location, UPenn seemed like the perfect place for him to thrive.
After discussing his options with his family, friends, and teachers, Raj made the decision to attend UPenn's Wharton School. He knew that the outstanding education and resources available to him there would set him on a path to success in the business world.
With excitement and determination, Raj accepted his offer to attend Wharton. As he looked forward to the next chapter in his life, he felt a deep sense of gratitude for the support he had received throughout his journey. Raj was ready to take on the challenges and opportunities that awaited him at the University of Pennsylvania, eager to make a lasting impact on both his future and the world around him.
Rachel Rachel sat in her room, her heart pounding as she stared at her laptop screen. She had already been rejected from Columbia Early Decision, and she couldn't help but feel a sense of dread as she prepared to open her regular admissions decisions. She knew that her tiger mom had high expectations, and the thought of disappointing her made Rachel's stomach churn.
As the emails began to arrive, Rachel hesitantly opened each one. Her face lit up with a smile as she read her acceptance letters from NYU, SUNY Binghamton, and SUNY Stony Brook. But the waitlist notifications soon followed, revealing that she had been placed on the waitlists for Cornell and Johns Hopkins.
Then came the rejections. Rachel's heart sank as she read the list of schools that had denied her admission: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Duke, Brown, UPenn, Dartmouth, Northwestern, UChicago, Amherst, Williams, Swarthmore, Vanderbilt, and Barnard. With each rejection, she felt the weight of her mother's expectations pressing down on her.
Fighting back tears, Rachel shared the news with her father first, hoping to gain some courage before facing her mother. Her father hugged her tightly, reassuring her that he was proud of her accomplishments and would support her decision no matter what.
The moment of truth came when Rachel sat down with her mother to discuss her college admissions results. Bracing herself for disappointment or anger, she shared her acceptances, waitlists, and rejections. To her surprise, her mother's reaction was not as harsh as she had feared. Though there was a hint of disappointment in her eyes, her mother told her that she was proud of her hard work and that she would always be there for her.
As the days went by, Rachel considered her options carefully. She had always loved the city, and the thought of attending NYU, with its vibrant atmosphere and diverse student body, appealed to her. After discussing her options with her parents and friends, she made the decision to attend NYU.

Although she hadn't gotten into some of the prestigious schools her mother had hoped for, Rachel felt a sense of pride in her accomplishments. She had faced her fears and come out stronger, ready to take on the next chapter of her life at NYU with determination and passion.
Alicia Alicia had already received her Early Action acceptance to Georgetown, but she still eagerly awaited the results of her other college applications. Sitting at the kitchen table with her family, she refreshed her email inbox, hoping for good news.
As the emails arrived, Alicia read the contents out loud to her family. She was elated to announce acceptances from Duke, Dartmouth, Emory, and NYU. Her family clapped and cheered, sharing in her joy and pride at her accomplishments.
Next came the waitlist notifications. Alicia informed her family that she had been placed on the waitlists for Princeton, Cornell, and Northeastern. Although she felt a hint of disappointment, she couldn't help but be grateful for her already impressive list of acceptances.
Finally, she read her rejection letters from Harvard, Yale, and Columbia. Despite the sting of rejection, Alicia remained optimistic, knowing she had already been accepted into several fantastic schools.
Over the following days, Alicia weighed her options. She found herself torn between Duke, where her older brother Marcus attended, and Georgetown's prestigious School of Foreign Service. She discussed her choices with her family, friends, and school counselors, seeking advice and insight to help her make the best decision.
Ultimately, Alicia chose to attend Georgetown. While the prospect of attending Duke and being closer to her brother was appealing, she couldn't deny her passion for international relations and the incredible opportunities that Georgetown's School of Foreign Service offered.
Alicia shared her decision with her brother, who expressed his support and pride in her choice. He knew that Georgetown was the perfect fit for her ambitions and dreams, and he looked forward to hearing about her experiences and successes there.
With excitement and determination, Alicia accepted her offer to attend Georgetown. As she looked forward to her future, she felt a deep sense of gratitude for the love and support she had received throughout her journey. She knew that Georgetown was the perfect place for her to grow, learn, and chase her dreams of making a difference in the world.
David David had already been accepted at Stanford to play football through the Restricted Early Action process, but that didn't stop his anticipation for the regular admissions decisions. As a talented athlete with a strong academic record, he knew that other prestigious schools might also be interested in recruiting him for their football programs.
One afternoon, David received emails from the football coaches at the University of Michigan and the University of Notre Dame, each expressing their enthusiasm to have him join their respective teams. David felt a sense of pride and accomplishment as he read the messages, knowing that his hard work both on and off the field had paid off.
Over the following days, David weighed his options carefully. He took the time to research each school's football program, academic offerings, and campus culture. He also reached out to his friends, family, and coaches to discuss his choices and gather their input.
As David considered each opportunity, he found himself consistently drawn back to Stanford. The university's strong academics, beautiful campus, and exceptional football program all seemed like the perfect fit for him. Moreover, he knew that attending Stanford would provide him with not only an excellent athletic experience but also the foundation for a successful career in business.
With a renewed sense of certainty, David confirmed his decision to attend Stanford. He sent emails to the coaches at Michigan and Notre Dame, thanking them for their offers and expressing his gratitude for their interest in him as an athlete and student.
As the day approached for David to sign his letter of intent with Stanford, he couldn't help but feel a mixture of excitement and relief. He knew that he had made the right choice and was eager to embark on the next chapter of his life as a student-athlete at one of the nation's most respected universities.
With his family and friends gathered around him, David signed the letter, officially committing to Stanford. He was filled with gratitude for the support he had received throughout his journey and looked forward to making his mark on the football field while pursuing his dreams in the classroom.
Taylor After having been deferred from Swarthmore during the Early Decision process, Taylor anxiously awaited their regular college admissions decisions. Sitting in their room, they took a deep breath as they opened their laptop to check their email.
As they started reading through the messages, Taylor felt a surge of happiness when they saw their acceptance letters from Wesleyan, Swarthmore, Barnard, Vassar, Reed, SUNY Binghamton, and SUNY Stony Brook. Each letter confirmed that these schools appreciated Taylor's unique talents and creativity, and were excited to have them on campus.
Next, Taylor opened the emails notifying them of their waitlist status at Williams, Northwestern, Emory, Georgetown, and Carnegie Mellon. Though a part of them felt disheartened, Taylor knew that they already had several amazing options to choose from.
Finally, Taylor faced the rejection letters from Yale, Duke, Columbia, Amherst, Brown, and Cornell. While it was tough to see those rejections, Taylor reminded themselves that the college admissions process was highly competitive and subjective, and that they had still achieved a great deal.
Over the next few days, Taylor spent hours researching the colleges they had been accepted to, focusing on each school's academic offerings, campus environment, and commitment to fostering an inclusive and supportive atmosphere. As they delved deeper, Taylor found themselves increasingly drawn to Wesleyan University, which was renowned for its vibrant arts scene and progressive community.
After discussing their options with family and friends, Taylor ultimately decided to attend Wesleyan. They knew that the university would not only provide them with a top-notch education but also a welcoming and nurturing environment where they could truly thrive as a nonbinary student.
Filled with excitement and anticipation, Taylor sent in their enrollment deposit to Wesleyan, eagerly looking forward to the incredible journey ahead. They couldn't wait to join the Wesleyan community, where they would have the opportunity to learn, grow, and make a lasting impact on the world.
Chapter 6: The Aftermath
Priya and Rachel Rachel and Priya sat on the steps outside Green Hills High School, their college decisions in hand. The sun was shining, but Rachel couldn't shake the cloud that hung over her head. She glanced at her list of acceptances and rejections, then looked over at Priya's results.
"Congrats on getting into Brown, Priya. I'm really happy for you," Rachel said, trying to force a smile.
"Thanks, Rachel. I'm excited, but I'm more worried about you. Are you okay?" Priya asked, concerned for her friend.
Rachel sighed, "I can't help but feel disappointed, you know? I got rejected by so many top colleges. All I have are NYU, SUNY Binghamton, and SUNY Stony Brook, and waitlists at Cornell and Johns Hopkins."
Priya placed a comforting hand on Rachel's shoulder. "Rachel, you're an amazing writer and a talented student. NYU is a fantastic school, and it's in the heart of New York City – the perfect place for a budding writer like you. Besides, you never know what might happen with the waitlists."
Rachel looked down at her results, then back at Priya. "I guess you're right. It's just that you got into so many prestigious schools, and I can't help but feel a little envious. I saw you were waitlisted at NYU, but I bet they only did that because they're afraid you'd choose another school over them."
Priya smiled reassuringly. "That's kind of you to say, but you shouldn't compare yourself to me or anyone else. We all have our own paths, and NYU seems like a perfect fit for you. Plus, I'm genuinely thrilled about your acceptance there."
Rachel nodded, taking a deep breath. "You know, my parents were actually happy about NYU. I was really surprised. I guess I should focus on the positives and make the most of the opportunity. Thank you, Priya. You're a good friend."
Priya hugged Rachel. "That's what friends are for, Rachel. I know you'll do great things at NYU, and we'll still keep in touch no matter where we are. We're in this together."
With a newfound sense of determination, Rachel decided to embrace her future at NYU, ready to make her mark on the world as an incredible writer.

Chapter 1: Beginning of Senior Year The crisp autumn air swirled around Green Hills High School, a prestigious public high school nestled in the suburbs of New York City. A sense of urgency and anticipation permeated the school, as the college admissions season had arrived. The pressures of academic achievement and looming deadlines weighed heavily on the shoulders of the senior class, who each bore their own unique dreams and aspirations. Among them were twelve students, each with distinct backgrounds and stories, all vying for a chance to secure a place at their dream colleges.
Ethan Green, an academically gifted slacker, found his once-promising future in jeopardy due to personal struggles and substance abuse. However, a stunning 1590 on the SATs breathed new life into his aspirations, rekindling his desire to attend the University of Chicago. With the unwavering support of his twin sister Julie, a straight-A student with a passion for music, Ethan began the arduous journey of repairing his tarnished transcript. Julie, on the other hand, had her heart set on Duke University, where she hoped to pursue a career in journalism.
Priya Rabinowitz, a brilliant, mixed-race overachiever, was the epitome of a perfect student. Her dream was to attend Brown University, driven by her passion for social justice. Despite her many accomplishments, she harbored a secret fear of not being "good enough." Her best friend, Rachel Lee, shared a similar sentiment, feeling inadequate in comparison to her academically perfect older brother Brian, and her high-achieving friend, Priya.
Matthew Hernandez, a top student with perfect grades and a near-perfect SAT score, dreamed of attending Harvard University, but his impoverished background made paying for college seem like an insurmountable challenge. At the same time, David Anderson, the school's star quarterback, yearned to attend Stanford and study business, but feared that his intelligence would be overshadowed by his athletic prowess.
Minho Park, a computer science prodigy who moved from South Korea at a young age, aimed to attend a prestigious school like MIT, Caltech, or Stanford. Alicia Davis, one of the few black students at Green Hills High School, aspired to attend Georgetown University and become a lawyer, her warm personality making her a natural confidante to her peers.
Alex Madrigal, another top student with a passion for math, science, and soccer, focused on getting into Stanford University. Meanwhile, Taylor Chen, a recently out nonbinary student, sought a college that would provide a safe and supportive environment for them to thrive.
Raj Singh, a senior at Green Hills High School who excelled in debate, hoped to attend Yale University. Lastly, Mary Sinclair, a talented artist who faced the pressures of being a double legacy at Brown University, worried that she may not truly be qualified for the prestigious institution.
As the college admissions season unfolded, these twelve seniors navigated the treacherous waters of self-discovery, friendship, and ambition, their journeys intertwining and shaping one another in ways they could never have imagined. The story of Green Hills High School's senior class was one of hope, heartache, and the relentless pursuit of dreams, all set against the backdrop of an unforgiving, competitive world.
Chapter 2: Applying Early The sun had barely risen on November 1st, the day when early college applications were due. A flurry of last-minute edits and double-checking consumed the lives of Green Hills High School's seniors as they prepared to submit their applications. The twelve friends, united by their dreams, sat together in the school library, each nervously finalizing their college applications.
Ethan, his heart pounding, reviewed his application one last time before hitting the submit button for Early Decision at the University of Chicago. He felt a mixture of excitement and trepidation as he considered the possibility of attending his dream school.
Julie, sitting beside her twin, took a deep breath and clicked submit on her Early Decision application to Duke University. She allowed herself a brief moment of relief, knowing she had poured her heart into her application and showcased her love for journalism.
Priya's hands trembled as she applied Early Decision to Brown University, her anxiety about being "good enough" momentarily set aside in the hope that her passion for social justice would shine through.
Rachel, her heart racing, sent off her Early Decision application to Columbia University, trying to shake off the pressure from her family and praying that her talents as a writer would be enough to secure her a spot at the prestigious institution.
Matthew, his jaw clenched, submitted his Restricted Early Action application to Harvard University, knowing that his future depended on receiving sufficient financial aid. He hoped that his stellar academic achievements would make it impossible for Harvard to turn him away.
David's eyes were filled with determination as he sent off his Restricted Early Action application to Stanford University, after completing his football tryouts. He hoped that the admissions officers would see his potential both on the field and in the classroom.
Minho, his fingers tapping anxiously, submitted his Early Action application to MIT. He had poured his heart into his computer science projects and was eager to showcase his passion and talent in his application.
Alicia, with a supportive smile from her friends, applied Early Action to Georgetown University. Her dream of becoming a lawyer seemed closer than ever as she hit the submit button, the pride she felt in herself evident in her eyes.
Alex, filled with anticipation, sent off his Restricted Early Action application to Stanford University. He knew that his academic achievements and passion for soccer had the potential to make him stand out in the competitive applicant pool.
Taylor, their hands shaking with nerves, applied Early Decision to Swarthmore College. They hoped that the accepting environment of the school would allow them to embrace their nonbinary identity and pursue their artistic passions.
Raj, his heart pounding, submitted his Restricted Early Action application to Yale University. He knew that his father would have been proud of his accomplishments, and he hoped that his debate skills and determination would be enough to secure a place at his dream school.
Mary, her face a mixture of hope and worry, applied Early Decision to Brown University. Despite her double legacy status, she longed to be admitted based on her own merits and her passion for art, rather than her family connections.
As the twelve friends hit the submit buttons on their applications, a collective sigh of relief filled the library. They had taken the first, crucial step in the college admissions process, their dreams laid bare for the admissions officers to see. The waiting game had begun, and their futures hung in the balance, but for now, they took solace in their shared journey, knowing that whatever the outcome, they had each other's support.
Chapter 3: Early Admissions Results
It was a chilly December evening when the early decision and early action results were released. The twelve friends gathered at Ethan and Julie's house, huddled around their laptops and phones, each waiting with bated breath for the email that would determine their future.
Ethan opened his email first, his eyes widening as he read the words, "Congratulations!" He had been accepted to the University of Chicago! The room erupted in cheers and applause as Julie hugged her twin, her pride in his accomplishment shining in her eyes.
Next, Julie nervously opened her own email, letting out a squeal of joy as she discovered that she had been accepted to Duke University. Her dream of studying journalism at the prestigious institution was now a reality, and her friends celebrated with her, sharing in her happiness.
Priya's hands shook as she opened her email from Brown University, only to find that she had been deferred. Her heart sank, and she tried to mask her disappointment with a smile. Rachel, whose application to Columbia University had been rejected, wrapped an arm around her friend, offering silent support.
Matthew's face fell as he read that his application to Harvard had also been deferred. He fought back the fear that his family's financial situation might prevent him from attending his dream school, even if he were ultimately accepted.
David beamed with pride as he announced that he had been accepted to Stanford University to play football. His friends cheered for him, although Alex couldn't help but feel a pang of jealousy, knowing he was more academically qualified. Alex's own email from Stanford revealed that he had been deferred, causing the disappointment to settle heavier in his heart.
Minho's face lit up with joy as he discovered that he had been accepted to MIT. His friends congratulated him, knowing that his hard work and dedication to computer science had paid off. Alicia, too, had reason to celebrate, as she was accepted to Georgetown University, one step closer to her dream of becoming a lawyer.
Taylor's heart raced as they opened their email from Swarthmore College, only to find that they had been deferred. They tried to remain hopeful, knowing that the college search was far from over.
Raj's face paled as he read that he had been rejected from Yale University. The disappointment stung, but his friends rallied around him, reminding him of his incredible accomplishments and assuring him that he would find the right college in the end.
Finally, Mary opened her email from Brown University and was met with the news of her acceptance. The room filled with cheers and congratulations, but Priya couldn't help feeling a twinge of jealousy. While Mary was a strong student, Priya's test scores and grades had been higher, and she knew that Mary's double legacy status had played a role in her acceptance.
As the evening came to an end, the twelve friends had experienced a roller coaster of emotions. Some had reason to celebrate, while others were met with disappointment, jealousy, or uncertainty. Despite the various outcomes, they knew that their friendship would remain steadfast. Together, they would continue to navigate the ups and downs of the college admissions process, their bonds only growing stronger as they faced an uncertain but hopeful future.
Chapter 4: A Few Random Scenes Before RD Decisions Income Brackets The twelve friends gathered at a local park on a sunny Saturday afternoon, enjoying each other's company as they picnicked and played games. As the sun began to dip in the sky, they sat on the grass in a circle, sharing their thoughts and experiences.
Alicia, ever the good listener, brought up a topic that they had all noticed but rarely discussed: their different income brackets. It was a sensitive subject, but Alicia felt that it was important for them to acknowledge and understand the unique challenges each of them faced.
Matthew, who came from a low-income family, hesitated before speaking up. "You know, sometimes it's really hard being one of the poorest students in our school. I've had to work a part-time job to help support my family, and that's meant less time for studying or extracurriculars." His friends nodded in sympathy, recognizing the additional pressure that Matthew faced in trying to balance his responsibilities.
Ethan, Julie, Minho, Alicia, and Taylor, who all came from middle-class families, shared their own struggles. "It's not always easy for us either," said Julie. "We may not have to worry as much about making ends meet, but we still feel the pressure to work hard and achieve our dreams without having a financial safety net to fall back on."
Priya, Rachel, David, Alex, and Raj, who were considered upper middle class, acknowledged the advantages they had but also shared their perspectives. "Sure, we have more resources," admitted Priya, "but it sometimes feels like there's an expectation for us to succeed no matter what. That pressure can be really overwhelming."
Mary, who came from an upper-class family, listened to her friends' experiences and nodded in understanding. "I know I'm fortunate," she said softly, "but it's not always easy being seen as the 'rich kid.' Sometimes people assume I don't have to work hard, or that I don't have my own problems. Money can't buy happiness, and it can't guarantee success either."
As the conversation continued, the friends found themselves opening up about their fears, insecurities, and the unique challenges they faced because of their different financial situations. They began to understand each other's perspectives more fully, realizing that no one had a perfect life, regardless of their income bracket.
The sun had almost set by the time the twelve friends decided to pack up and head home. As they walked together, they felt a renewed sense of unity and support. They knew that their friendship was more important than any financial differences, and they were grateful to have one another as they faced whatever challenges life had in store for them.
The twelve friends were seated in the school library, working on a group project for their history class. Their task was to research and create a presentation on the American Revolution, and each student was responsible for a specific aspect of the project.
As they discussed their findings, Julie mentioned a piece of information that she couldn't quite recall. "I remember reading something about the Battle of Saratoga, but I can't remember the exact details," she admitted, frustrated.
Ethan, who had been quietly browsing through a book, glanced up and said, "Do you mean the fact that it was a turning point in the Revolutionary War because it convinced the French to support the American cause?"
Julie looked at him, surprised. "Yes, that's exactly it! How did you know?"
Ethan grinned sheepishly. "I saw it in one of the books we were using for research last week. I just happened to glance at the page, but it stuck in my head."
His friends exchanged glances, impressed by Ethan's uncanny ability to remember things he had only seen briefly. It was a talent they had all noticed before, but never really discussed.
Curious, Minho asked, "Ethan, do you have a photographic memory?"
Ethan shrugged. "I guess you could say that. I've always been able to remember things I've seen or read, even if it's just for a short moment. It's just something my brain does."
The group marveled at Ethan's unique skill, and they began to ask him questions about various historical events and figures. To their amazement, he was able to recall an incredible amount of information, often down to the exact page number where he had seen it.
As the group continued their project, they couldn't help but feel grateful for Ethan's extraordinary memory. His ability to retain and recall information made their research more efficient, and it quickly became clear that his talent would be a major asset in their project.
The friends were not only impressed by Ethan's photographic memory but also inspired by the way he used his gift to help the group. It was a reminder that each of them had their unique strengths, and when they worked together, there was no challenge they couldn't overcome.
Rachel The twelve friends had gathered at Priya's house for a relaxed weekend hangout. As they lounged in the living room, a pile of their old middle school yearbooks lay on the coffee table, stirring up nostalgic memories and laughter.
Raj picked up one of the yearbooks and flipped through the pages, pausing when he came across the "Creative Writing Club" section. He looked up at Rachel and said, "Hey, I remember you won a couple of writing contests back then. Are you still writing?"
Rachel blushed and nodded. "Yeah, I've been working on a few short stories recently."
Her friends exchanged glances, intrigued. "Would you mind sharing one with us?" Alicia asked gently, her eyes full of genuine interest.
With some hesitation, Rachel agreed and disappeared into her bag, retrieving a small notebook. Her friends gathered around her in anticipation as she flipped through the pages, searching for the story she wanted to share.
"Okay," Rachel said, taking a deep breath. "This one is called 'The Timekeeper's Daughter.'"
As she began to read, her friends listened intently. Rachel's words painted a vivid picture of a young girl named Lila, who lived in a world where time was a tangible currency. Lila's father was the town's Timekeeper, responsible for managing and distributing time to the citizens.
The story was filled with imaginative details and intricate descriptions that transported the friends into Lila's world. Rachel's writing was both elegant and engaging, seamlessly weaving together the threads of the plot as the story unfolded.
As Rachel's voice carried them through the emotional highs and lows of Lila's journey, her friends found themselves hanging onto every word. They felt the young girl's joy and sorrow, her determination and fear, and the ultimate resolution of her story.
When Rachel finally closed the notebook, the room was silent for a moment before it erupted into applause. Her friends marveled at the beauty of her storytelling, praising her extraordinary writing abilities.
"Rachel, that was incredible!" Julie exclaimed. "I felt like I was right there with Lila in that world. Your descriptions were so vivid, and the story was so unique and compelling."
"Yeah, you have a real gift," David added, his admiration evident in his voice. "You should consider writing a book someday."
Rachel blushed again, overwhelmed by their compliments. As her friends continued to praise her creative writing talents, she felt a newfound sense of confidence and determination to continue honing her craft.
For the twelve friends, the experience of listening to Rachel's story brought them closer together, as they were reminded once again of the diverse talents that each of them possessed. Together, they celebrated Rachel's extraordinary writing abilities and the unique gifts that each of them brought to their circle of friendship.

2023.03.22 12:31 ArthurWintersight 88% of Oklahoma high schools are below average.

From Oklahoma Watch: "Among Oklahoma’s 457 public high schools, 54 exceeded the national average ACT score of 20.6 in 2020."
That means less than 12% of Oklahoma high schools are even 0.1 points above the national average for ACT scores. That is absolutely shameful.
If we had a mediocre education system then about half of schools would be above this average. If we had a great education system, then substantially more than half of schools would be above average. Instead about 88% of schools, or almost nine schools out of ten, are below average.

2023.03.22 12:25 Gaythiest1 Irony

I'm curious if anyone else has experienced this annoying scenario. Looking back it's almost like I was a ghost. You would think as the youngest child I would have gotten some attention but I really didn't. I passed through elementary school and then middle and high school without my parental unit ever attending parent teacher conferences. Or even asking to see my report cards. My baseball league games and the football games I played in high school were ignored. Never attended. The one time as I child I had to be hospitalized for a few days for a minor surgery. I was literally checked in and then left alone for the four days I was there. My parent didn't return until I was discharged. I was eight years old. What I'm getting at is that I fantasized about any scenario that would involve me being the center of attention. I was starving for it. Things reversed when I became an adult. I deliberately try to remain unseen. I become very uncomfortable when complimented or thanked. It really kind of irritates me that I can't seem to allow myself the pleasure of the experience I craved so much as a kid. It's like part of my "self" is determined to keep me in my default state of being joyless and dead inside. Does anyone else have a similar issue?

2023.03.22 10:36 DGReddAuthor High-School Potato Recipe

I was thinking about this today, and I made it, two great big fucking potatoes and I ate both of them and the extra filling. Damn, I was hungry. Ordinarily, I wouldn't call this a recipe, but the reason I'm writing it down is because as I was gorging myself this afternoon I thought, "this would be a good one to convince non-vegans to stop murdering animals". And you know, maybe someone here hasn't had one.
Of course it's hard to convince people. But this is one of those ones that I reckon you can convince people to give it a go, because it tastes just like a high-school potato, without being "weird" vegan replacements.
What's a high-school potato? Maybe I'm just old, but when I went to high-school (1997-2002), in like, year 7 or 8, we all had to do home rec, it was a mandatory subject. One of the only things I learned in high-school that I retained, is this recipe.
That's why it's called high-school potato. I also learned to disrespect anyone who claimed to have authority, hate for our antiquated way of teaching (like we're all going to be factory workers), anyone who plays football is probably a rapist/abuser, and poverty breeds hate.



  1. Hot frypan, like the middle setting on the stove. Olive oil in there.
  2. Turn on the oven to like 180 or something, if you have a grill, we'll just use that instead.
  3. Poke your potatoes with a fork or skewer, bunch of holes all over. Stick them on a plate, with paper towel over them, in the microwave for about 8 minutes on a high setting. If your microwave has a potato button, use that instead.
  4. Chop up the shallot and the garlic, as big or small as you want
  5. When the oil is hot, start frying
  6. When the potato microwave bings, roll them over and cook again. Keep doing this until you can skewer them without much resistance. I.e., they're cooked through.
  7. Chop up your boar-free bacon. As big or little as you want.
  8. When the onion and shallot is fried a little, add the bacon pieces
  9. Now you can get some scissors and cut up the spring onion and chives, just put them in a medium mixing bowl for now.
  10. When your bacon onion garlic looks nice just take it off the heat for now
  11. Get your potatoes, careful, they're hot, and cut the top off. Just like... 1 cm thick off the top, like you're scalping it. You want access to the inside.
  12. Scoop the inside out the potato out with a spoon, and put the potato in the mixing bowl. You want to scoop out all of it, so there's just a thin casing of potato and skin left. Be careful not to break the potato, but it's not a big deal if you do.
  13. Get a fork and mash up the potato in your mixing bowl, add some butter to make it a little easier. You want it somewhat creamy. Add you bacon onion garlic to it. Add some sour cream to it.
  14. Mix it all up in the bowl. At this point, you can experiment with some other stuff. Vegan Worcestershire (I spelt that right first go) sauce is nice addition.
  15. Now you stuff the potatoes. Like digging a grave, you're not going to get it all back in, but you can try. Any extra is just good to eat right now.
  16. Press some shredded cheese into the top.
  17. Under the grill, or in the oven.
  18. The tops of the potato can be brushed in oil, bit of cheese and salt and pepper, and gilled/ovened and turned into a crunchy potato skin sort of thing to go with your high-school potato.
They're so good. Chives and sour cream are really the only mandatory ingredients, other than that you can put whatever you want. I think bacon or ham is what really sells it as a high-school potato, but that's just my personal experience, so add whatever you reckon goes well.

2023.03.22 10:25 vyvanseenjoyer Looking for advice relating to high prolactin in young male

If this is against the rules please remove it. This isn't specifically related to T, however it is heavily associated, and I do not want any specific medical advice. Thanks.
21 y/o male, been fat my entire life (240lbs for all of high school.) At the beginning of 2022, I decided to make a change and began fasting and going to the gym. Before I started, I got blood work done to get a baseline, as seen here
Other than the 90 year old man T level, the prolactin was my biggest concern. According to everything I can find on the internet, a pituitary tumor is the only thing that would cause the level to be that high. Perhaps it was a fluke or just due to being a stressed out fatty (I thought.)
Unfortunately a combination of work and generally being a lazy piece of shit has derailed much of my progress, but I have managed to lose and keep off 20lbs as well as cut my mile time by 2 minutes and significantly increase my PR's on compound lifts, prompting me to get another panel done 15 months later.
A 50% increase in T made me excited, especially given that I have a long way to go and can expect it to continue to rise. However, the prolactin is once again very high.
I've never experienced any of the common symptoms associated with high prolactin. I've had man boobs since I was 12, or that's what I presume they are at least (flabby fatty tissue with no dense mass under the nipples, no nipple sensitivity or protrusion, and no concentration of fat around or under the nipples.) Sex drive is high, erections are strong. Covered in body hair on back and stomach, though curiously almost none on face or arm pits.
Anyone have a similar experience? I already have an appointment with an endocrinologist for next month, just figured I'd ask here. Maybe someone will read and have some good resources or information.
Any/all help is appreciated. Thanks.

2023.03.22 10:22 YellowInfinite3255 Disparity between WBIS and CAIT

I am a 17M from India. From the second half of 2019, I have been suffering from some philosophical conflicts which resulted in my full psychological check up in June 2022. They tested me on a variety of tests including an IQ test namely the Weschler Bellevue. As you would be knowing, this one was the very first IQ test made by Weschler in 1939. I don't why they still use. Might be because the WAIS iv kit is very costly. I am not coping. But I was recovering from cold at the time. This might be useful.
I didn't know that they would do an IQ test. They did. In the process, she also commented to her assistant that it had been a bad idea to use English vocabulary tests as I am non-native, they did continue though and it resulted in a Verbal IQ of 126 I also did the picture completion test, the object assembly test, coding, digit span, arithmetic and block design. On the digit span, I scored around 7-8 digits. Among these block design was the easiest. I did it effortlessly within the timelimit, so I guess I scored maximally on it. Picture completion and object assembly, I messed up. Coding too. Giving me a PIQ of 112. FSIQ 128.
Before doing this test, I had already done few IQ tests online namely Mensa Norway(135), dk(133) and Finland (133) and Luxembourg (137.5). I did the CAIT and scored VCI(124) (very accurate), pri (130) and CPI (146). FSIQ 141. As for the digit span subtest, I scored 127 around the time after giving WBIS. Later I have scored maximally ever since (152 IQ). With the suggestion of a few members, I did it again after 5-7 months interspersedly scoring maximally each time I have taken it. So, I doubt if it is really practice effect. I can also multiply 3*3 digit numbers in the normal way without trcks in my head.
As for my performance IQ, I doubt if it is really 112, as I am the best programmer at my school which is a prestigious high school in India. Programming, math and science in general comes very easily to me and I tend to think unconventionally as noticed by my friends. I also did the WAIS iii performance estimation on this sub and scored better at 137(pri) and 130 piq. I have done the tri 52(805: 137.7 iq), raven long (141.5), short(145), maxed weschler matrix reasoning.
I have noticed that the cait is actually very accurate from the coincidence of scores of few members. I also did anem_alaish's wais estimator and scored around the same: VCI:125, PSI(112), PRI(138, tri 52) and WMI (150).
So why did I score 128 the first time? I am a top student, good computer science enthusiast, know a bit about philosophy, but I didn't start reading early as many high iq people in my supposed range do. I was considered a bright child, my home tutor had commented that I had a clever brain when I was around 4-5 years old. Lack of any such exceptional signs like early reading etc. also makes me think that I am actually around 128. But the opposing facts are true too and cannot be invalidated easily. Please give me your thoughts on this.

2023.03.22 09:13 SpacemanCylon Tips on meeting people my age?

I’m in an interesting (I think it is) situation. I’m 17 now and a guy and I already graduated high school as a sophomore. Furthermore I already earned practically enough credits for an associate’s degree in biology. I currently work a full time job and fly as a private pilot. All this to say, I spend my time doing things mostly only other adults do (work, school, etc.). For this reason I feel as though I’m missing out on all of the teenage fun. I don’t have any close friends, especially since I started high school and graduated while Covid lockdowns were still major. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t sad to be missing out on the random adventures, football games, and especially girls. I can’t exactly using dating apps, and because the people I’m surrounded by are adults, I can’t exactly go to the clubs and bars they go to for fun. I will be going to a 4 year university in a few months so I expect to have some fun in that environment; I wouldn’t say I’m antisocial or anything and I don’t think (at least hope) that that isn’t the problem. I’m quite bored these days and I feel like I’m just killing time by myself. Any suggestions for me to meet girls or possible friends who are my age?

2023.03.22 09:04 Davidmora12 How can an educational recruitment agency benefit you?

Words may start a revolution, whereas a sword can merely incite violence, which is why the proverb "A pen is mightier than the sword" is used.
When a baby turns 4 years old, he or she needs to continue their education till age 22 in order to have a higher quality of life. For the past two years, all schools and universities have been closed. Online education is fantastic, but it does not have the same impact as traditional classroom instruction. The contact between the teacher and the student as well as the teacher's physical presence is essential to the learning process. When there are no interactions with teachers, students, or the environment, learning new things becomes challenging for a developing mind. Every education worker is aware of the numerous responsibilities that schools, colleges, and nurseries must balance in order to run effectively. While student wellness is the top priority, other internal and external stresses also frequently need to be addressed.
Recruitment for teaching positions is among the most difficult and time-consuming processes. Schools frequently need to hire new staff members virtually every time a new school year begins, which can be a perpetual battle, just like any other industry. It's possible that there aren't enough competent candidates for teaching positions or that a school doesn't have enough staff to carry out the hiring procedure effectively. Using an educational recruitment agency to fill open positions at a school is a great idea in any circumstance.
4 Benefits of using educational recruitment agency:-
Schools have faced a rising number of challenges in recent years, including the shortage of teachers and the COVID-19 pandemic's aftereffects. These problems have made it more difficult to hire new teaching staff, whether they are needed to fill positions for primary and secondary school teachers, cover supervisors, teaching assistants, or support employees.
Thankfully, any school having trouble with its hiring procedures can receive professional assistance by working with knowledgeable educational agencies like Always Flourishing.
  1. Time and Effort on recruitment are saved:
It can take a lot of time to find a new secondary or primary teacher, teaching assistant, or member of the support and supply team. This is partially due to the rounds of interviews that must take place after carefully reviewing CVs. Fortunately, an educational recruitment agency may relieve this tension by leveraging their knowledge to expedite the procedure and compile a shortlist of the top prospects.
  1. Money can be saved:-
Using a recruitment agency instead of doing recruitment internally can result in cost savings, even if this may not seem like a clear advantage because doing so is a type of outsourcing. Not only does this choice save you money over paying current employees to manage the hiring process, but also the effective use of agencies lessens the possibility of any missed time or productivity. In order to speed up the hiring process, educational recruitment consultants have access to a sizable pool of job-seeking prospects.
  1. Making Connections:-
You might be introduced to available employment that matches your skill set and degree of expertise through an educational recruitment agency. If one job doesn't work out for you, a recruiter may have an alternative that is a better fit in the pipeline because they frequently work with numerous firms and a range of individuals at the same time.
Additionally, even though many businesses post open opportunities across a variety of channels, recruiting firms occasionally have positions that are exclusively posted internally or are not publicly advertised. Therefore, by expanding your search to include submitting resumes to an agency or interacting with a recruiter, you may find more opportunities.
  1. Security Checks:-
Education recruiting firms are aware of how crucial it is for all potential teachers to be screened before joining your school. As a result, the consultants in charge of recruiting for your institution will make every effort to do extensive security checks on your behalf. When it comes to a face-to-face interview with your shortlisted candidates, everyone will have been thoroughly verified.
You should receive advice from a recruiter on how to best present yourself for the position. They might be able to provide you with some industry knowledge and assist you to identify your various strengths and limitations in relation to a certain role so that you can present yourself in the best possible light throughout the hiring process.
In order to provide the client or the firm with an updated, high-quality resume that matches what they are looking for, some recruiters may also assist you in updating your resume or provide guidance during the process. Particularly, if they have previously worked with that organization, they would be familiar with the hot buttons that the customer looks for in a CV, which is quite useful.
In addition to the advantages listed above, it's critical to remember that recruiters work for the business. The employer, who pays the recruiter to fill any unfilled vacancies, is the "client." Contrast this with a headhunter, who is employed and compensated by the job seeker to find a position.
Therefore, partnering with an educational recruitment agency has the added benefit of being cost-free for you. Companies typically have a separate budget for hiring recruiters. So, the cost is not covered by your income but rather by a budget for operations. The year is 2022, and everyone in the world is moving quickly to keep up. Learning new methods, core ideas, machine learning, coding, etc. is necessary for the kids to advance in their careers. According to a study, a small number of European and gulf countries find it extremely difficult to teach a small number of courses since there are so few teachers in those regions and because the educational recruitment agency hires people from all over the world. The agencies recruits for various job positions such as teaching positions, academic positions, and other positions like Principal, Vice Principal, Librarian, Content developer, Program/ Project Manager, Assessment Strategy, and Development officer, Junior High School Teacher, Curriculum Designer, etc. The organizations do more than just find individuals; they also help with their overseas migration. When they migrate, they assist them by obtaining their visas and other necessities.
A leading educational recruitment agency's goal is to unlock potential in people and provide access to rewarding careers. They help job seekers achieve their goals and secure positions at the top organizations in the globe as a manpower provider. They also observe that temporary and permanent roles at multinational organizations attract applicants who can enhance the efficiency of their companies' operations.

2023.03.22 08:51 Worldly-Damage-6691 Drifting up over years, how to reconfigure the relationship or separate (38M, 39F)

This is a throwaway account, and names have been changed.
I (38M) have been married to my wife (39F) for 12 years and we have two kids (3yo boy and 6yo girl). We are both hard-working and fairly successful professionals in a large german city and have been supportive of each other's career over the years. We have both always been fairly into feminism and openness, and we always were very careful to divvy up the domestic chores and children care. In the past few years, my wife has been creating a new startup, with all the corresponding workload and stress -- I have been supportive of her, of course, I did encourage her to start it and at the beginning even took some extra jobs to make ends meet. I have always been supportive of the specific demands this kind of enterprise demands and have been taking the kids for some weekends, vacations, etc. by myself when she needed extra time to work.
In the past few years, starting with the pandemic, the balance has been less reasonable. While I do empathize with the issues of running a company through turbulent times, this has taken a toll on my professional life (where I am also in a somewhat high-profile position in academia) and family life -- for instance, she canceled repeatedly family vacations a few days before all along 2022 because of work, stopped taking the kids to their activities while I took care of it, etc. This has affected our relationship as a couple as there was very little time for just the two of us. She has anxiety issues and a complicated family life so I empathize but multiple conversations I started with her during the fall of 2022 fell short.
Two years ago, I was invited to spend a semester at a fancy US university as a visiting professor. This something fairly important to me professionnally. I told her about the invitation and she told me she would be happy to move to the US for a few months and would arrange for remote working -- I did make it clear it would be ok for me to refuse. As a consequence, I accepted and we made plans for the balance to be ok. We decided I would move by myself there for 4 weeks, with the two kids, and then she would join for three months. So we did that, which definitely was a challenge as I was by myself, in a country with no family or friends support, with two young kids. I did manage to set up all the logistics, new homes, new schools, etc. As she arrived, she became extremely anxious with work, remained on a European schedule, was generally very absent. After two weeks, she left to attend a conference somewhere else in the US for a week.
When she came back, I told her we were drifting apart, and I wanted to talk about what our priorities in life were. That I respected that her work was her main focus, but we should try and understand where that would lead us. We have always been fairly open regarding relationships and I also told her we could explore not being as exclusive, as a means of each focusing on different goals while not feeling frustrated of trying to maintain an exclusive relationship that was not the main focus anymore. She was very upset with the conversation, which I understand, but also did confirm she had many things in mind and needed to focus on work and mental health, while not wanting to change the relationship.
She was miserable with remote work for a few days, and so much so that she decided to leave back to Europe for a few weeks, again leaving me with our two young kids. While I understand she was in a bad place, I do feel bad about her leaving us, the kids being a little sad, and me trying to satisfy my professional obligations while being the sole caretaker of two kids. I do feel betrayed and neglected.
I feel I don't necessarily want a separation rather than work out a new way to be together which involves opening our marriage (tbh, the tension and isolation with housework and family work makes it so that at some point I probably would cheat), but sometimes I feel very helpless. Any feedback ?
TL; DR: I feel my wife has been drifting apart due to focusing on her work and feel resentment about it. How do I navigate this ?

2023.03.22 08:27 North-Trick-8571 AITAH for not telling my family that I have been working for the past 5 ish years?

Sorry. If I have really bad grammar english is not my 1st language and it may be a long one. First let's start with some background I (24 F) am adopted into a wonderful family that previously had 4 bio kids. They are all now adults with the closest to me being 16 years older. When the youngest child was fighting to be more independent my parents decided that they wanted one more try at being parents so they adopted me. My siblings really didn't mind considering they were mostly all grown up and living their own lives some of them even having children of their own. I for the most part got along very well with my siblings and for the oldest I gotta along with their children. The problem however started my senior year of high school you see my parents biological children loved receiving gifts and materials things as that is their love language. I however do not because of my past in other homes I do not like receiving gifts particularly gifts that I have no basic need for like purses, extra clothes, technology, accessories or room décor. My parents being accustomed to their children give me gifts like this occasionally. Well in my senior year of high school our dad got gravely ill this hit everybody hard but I think it was particularly difficult for me seeing as I had finally found a proper family. But both my parents wanted to pretend like nothing was happening and kept on giving gifts to all their children but mostly me as I was the only one still at home. When my siblings started to notice 3 of them would tell my parents that they were spoiling me to much and this would make them fight. I would tell my parents to stop but they would not stop getting me things. After a year or so of our father passed away just leaving our mom and me in the house. You see my mom was accustomed to a very nice life thanks to our father, mom did work but all the money she made was for her and father kept the house going. She asked he children for help with her basics like medical (because she also has a illness but controlled) or her phone bill. I was in college at the time but because I got a full ride my mom didn't want me to work and focus on school. But her kids would tell her that as long as I lived with her that they would not give her anything so my mom gave in and let me work. Thankfully I found a job with my college that let me work from home and payed well enough that my mom could have her life back. The one thing I asked of her was to not tell no one what I worked because I worked with important information. Well my siblings did not buy the idea of me working and would still fight with our mom about me I would never say anything as my parents told me never to fight with them. Fast forward to October 2022 and our mom had to be hospitalized do to her condition getting worse. I at this point am working in the same job for about 5 ish years and making enough to keep going to school. Because of our mom being in the hospital we had to sell everything to pay for everything she needed. At that time some of my siblings would keep making comments like "if you just worked mom wouldn't have to sell anything". Once more our mom tried to explain but they still didn't believe her thinking that was she was just trying to defend me. This went on for weeks until unfortunately our mom passed. After everything was settled one of my siblings asked me what was I planning to do next seeing as i had no where to go. I explained to them that my job allowed me to transfer to a major city 2 hours away and that I would continue schooling over there. They told me to stop lying and to tell them what I was really intending to do but I just repeated myself tell you trying to explain it. After some time of arguing one of my siblings asked why I had never mentioned it before and I said that I didn't see a need to seeing as they didn't even believe mom. A couple of days later I got a call from one of our aunts saying that some of my siblings had called her to complain about the horrible thing I did? According to them I was an ass for not stopping the comments and allowing them to fight with their mother. That if they world have known they would have helped her out and would not have been fighting because of me so often. So AITAH for not telling them I had been working for about 5 ish years?

2023.03.22 07:39 macyye Does my crush like me? What do you guys think?

I started liking this guy in September of 2022. (I'm gonna call him L) I'm gonna tell you guys some stories that have happened between me and him and you want, you can give me your opinion on all of this.
(btw, I told him I like him in Nov. on text) (ALSO, our homeschool tutorial is only once a week btw)
  1. Jan. 5, 2023: So the first real interaction between us happened at a game night for our homeschool tutorial. We were playing "signs" and L was tossing a football around from across the room with his friend. Then, L threw the football at his friend when he wasn't looking and kinda hurt his friend's arm, then L said so randomly "It was Macy!" (I am Macy btw lol) I know it isn't a big deal but it was to me at the time.
  2. Jan. 10, 2023: Another story is that his first day at school (he joined halfway through the year) (also I just want say our homeschool tutorial is really small, like there are literally 13 high schoolers) Me and my younger sister are both in art, and so is L. And my sister said that whenever our teacher would say something funny. L would look and me and laugh. Like every time apparently.
  3. Jan. 24, 2023: A few weeks later in art, we were making sculptures out of wire, and L said "Macy! Can you give me the wire?" So I slid it across the table and it fell off. It was kinda embarrassing, but after, L said "Well... never mind" while laughing.
  4. I told the teacher that I finished my sculpture, and L goes "The mouth needs surgery."
  5. Feb. 7, 2023: We made eye contact countless times in art.
  6. Feb. 14, 2023: We had a mini conversation at lunch. Also in bible drill class, our teacher was telling us that we were gonna have "bootcamp" (which is a thing at her house to practice) and L turned and looked at me and asked "What's bootcamp?" So I explained it to him and he was like "Alr cool" and then I said "Oh, and there will be food." And he looked at me and laughed. Another thing that happened that day was L was drawing a tattoo on his friend's leg with sharpie, and when he was done he turned to me and asked "Macy, is his new tattoo hot?" so obviously I was like "Yess are you a tattoo artist?".
  7. Feb. 21, 2023: Made tons of eye contact again in art.
  8. Feb. 28, 2023: In art, L looked at me intensely for so long that I looked at him 3 times before he looked away. In bible drill, L randomly turned to me while talking to his friend and asked me "Macy, do you watch Outerbanks?". Also me, L, L's friend, and my friend were talking, and I said something to my friend and then L's friend said "what?" so I said "I wasn't talking to you." and then L said "Were you talking to me??" Then L's friend said "I bet she talks about you in her dreams." So I said "TRUE." (btw his friend knows I like L)
  9. Mar. 21, 2023: Now, it's time for today's stories. lolol. I can tell we're starting to get a little closer. Maybe friends. He sat by me in bible drill but then his friend had to ruin it by squeezing in the middle of us. We also had a lot of encounters today. Like, when we were walking past each other, he tried to give me a high five, but I only noticed the last second, so I didn't have time to. We talked a lot today but it all went by in a daze, so I don't remember it well.

Anyways, that's about it. Tell me what you think in the comments. Also sorry if any of this was confusing.

2023.03.22 07:29 tisbrilliantbruv As of recently I (f22) have a severe reaction to alcohol and unsure why

I am a 22 year old female and I currently am diagnosed with adhd, ocd, anxiety and depression. I’ve had three hip surgeries in case that’s relevant? I currently take vyvanse 40mg, abilify 2mg and Prozac 40mg. I’m 5’6 and i weigh 130lbs.
Since I was in high school I’ve been able to drink alcohol and handle it fairly well. I always knew my limit and could recognize when enough was enough. I never got out of control at parties or clubs.
In 2021, i began noticing rashes on my face the morning after I drank. Dark red spots scattered my cheeks every time I drank. But they only appeared the next day. They also didn’t appear anywhere else on my body. But they were quite obvious.
I started noticing more significant hangovers. Such as, throwing up after one or two drinks the night before.
In fall 2022 I drank the same amount, if not less, than I would typically drink in a night. 4 drinks? Maybe? When the summer before I could handle well over 5. I felt fine and I was present until I immediately wasn’t. I threw up all over myself in the Uber. And then I passed out in a parking lot until my parents got me home.
Last weekend, I attended a get together with friends at a baclub. I drank the same amount as them, possibly less? I went into the washroom and felt okay. Sure yeah I was drunk but I felt okay. I closed the stall door and locked myself in before I collapsed. Security was called by my boyfriend when I never came out of the washroom. Thank god he got me home safely. But he almost had to call me an ambulance or the police.
Ultimately, I will just not drink moving forward. But I would really like to know what could possibly be causing this sudden and scary change.
Side note: i only really drink once every few months.

2023.03.22 07:15 TrainProfessional282 Forgot to transfer vehicle title

Some time in 2020 I bought a car from someone off Facebook. I was fresh out of high school and when he gave me the title it was signed but he didn’t date it so I could put one when I was ready to go switch everything.
Like most used cars do, it broke down about two months later and pretty much became unusable.
Now that I want to get rid of it I realize I never switched the title.
What are the penalties for that, and would they be able to verify the date I put on it? I’m nervous to put a date in 2020 or even 2022.
I know it was a stupid mistake, just unsure of how to go about this.

After some backlash about the previous predetermined-matchup format, NWC is now using a more traditional pool play and bracket format. There are still some quirks, as noted below:
  • UW and WWU won't play each other in Pool B. Instead, UW will play BYU, and WWU will play Victoria and BYU.
  • #9 BYU and #14 Victoria are each only playing Friday and Saturday games and won't be part of the bracket.
  • The top seeds in each pool will play BYU and Victoria: UBC plays BYU, while Carleton, Vermont, and Colorado play Victoria. If each of these teams also finishes atop their respective pools, this should provide some symmetry in number of games played, as the 2nd and 3rd finishers in each pool play a pre-quarter while the 1st finisher receives a bye to quarters.

Not certain the men's division is actually a power pool, might just be unconventional use of USAU's scheduler.
