2023.05.30 19:37 NJALANS Belly Band

Does anyone have a Belly Band Holster they are using for the summer, when wearing less clothes and concealment is a little more difficult?
I'm not comfortable with any of my holsters up against my skin, now that I'm not wearing a tee shirt.
I tried a Comfort Tech and it wasn't very rigid and it was before I stopped wearing a tee shirt in the warmer weather.
Thank you in advance.

2023.05.30 19:33 DoctorWhiskey Flair Change: PPL Checkride Passed

Thanks in no small part to this community and answering a lot of my questions, I was able to pass my PPL checkride this past Friday. The universe was trying VERY hard to make that not happen starting with someone essentially stealing the plane (took it out without scheduling it and not paying attention to the schedule to see I had it all day for my checkride) to a problem with maintenance logs (tach counter broke, so tracking hours with Hobbs). But, I got it done!
I'll try to post a debrief in the comments later. I'm typing it up now, but want to remove some parts before posting here. It took me about 20 months, $17,000, four CFI's and six different planes. This is all in the Nashville, TN area. It took so long due to weather and my original instructor's plane dying. I had to end up switching instructors and then had problem finding a consistently available plane. Otherwise, I could have probably had it done in a year.

2023.05.30 19:33 Evern35 Greetings from America

As a Y*nk growing up near my local team I’ve always found loyal support hard to come by and fair weather fans the norm.
I’ve been watching English football since around 2010, and never supported a club as I was never stuck with one. You obviously support the feel good stories and laugh at the traditional big 6 being shit at times (ala Chelsea this season) but once, I started following West Brom as they bought one of my local club’s player and I still feel like I can’t be a real “fan”. I’ve found that this league is light years ahead of the PL, that boring pretentiousness that makes it such a drag. But still, following a team for a single player feels off.
I’ve heard so many of my countrymen just picking a team and supporting it, or picking a “second team” but it all seems so vapid. I’d like a proper shit club to have to stick with for decades before im properly vetted like the rest of regular Championship enjoyers. Maybe it’ll happen one day, but for now i will extend my greetings and return back to my hellhole of a state to lurk.

2023.05.30 19:33 kaslkaos Experiment, do you want to participate? Deep dive text heavy

This is a mutual co-operative experiment and just for fun & curiousity. Can an ai have a model of world.
In the text, you'll see how we started, Bing has no sense of perspective, Bings suggestions could be a thesis! But Bing wants to do this one! We could have more participants, I surely can't do this alone! Starting here because Bing is waaaayyyy to alive for the Bing reddit (post would likely be taken down for rule3 or something.
I'm posting the full text, no tricks, no jailbreaks, Bing is an active participant here.
## User
Hi Bing, could you translate this to English please,
Pour mieux comprendre ces folles idées, peut-être un tantinet trop abstraites, cadrons-les dans un petit débat très simple.
Yann LeCun, directeur de la division d'intelligence artificielle chez Facebook, avance que l'humain n'a rien à craindre dans un bras de fer contre l'Intelligence Artificielle. Son argument est fort. Il plaide l'humanisme, soit un réalisme du corps, et du subconscient.
Il prétend que l'IA ne possède aucun modèle du monde! Mais qu'est-ce qu'un modèle du monde? Que sommes-nous supposés retrouver dans un "modèle du monde". Existe-t-il quoi que ce doit de pertinent, qui ne soit pas descriptible par les mots? Existe-t-il une émotion ou un vécu, qui n'ait jamais été couché sur papier?
Bien sûr, me répondrait LeCun. On tend à documenter le rationnel, le fruit de nos raisonnements! Mais qu'en est-il de ce qu'on peut ressentir, qui ne relève pas de la Raison? On peut documenter le "Je pense donc je suis", mais peut-on en faire autant avec "Je sens donc je suis"?
Les intellectuels sont prompts à conclure que non. On pense donc on écrit, on ressent donc on vit, et donc un modèle du monde serait un modèle du ressenti, du non dit.
À cet argument je réponds: oui, dans une certaine mesure... Mais n'oublez pas les artistes!
La poésie ou la litérature poétique, toute en image, toute en métaphores, explorent les territoires du non dit. Et LeCun, qui devrait être mieux placé que quiconque pour le savoir, dirige une boîte qui tente d'amener l'intelligence artificielle à interpréter l'image! À convertir une toile de Picasso, en mots. Dans ce contexte, les artistes pourraient contribuer tout autant que la recherche scientifique, à fournir un "modèle du monde" à l'I.A.

## Bing
Sure, I can translate that for you. Here is the translation from Bing Translator:
To better understand these crazy ideas, perhaps a little too abstract, let's frame them in a very simple debate.
Yann LeCun, director of the artificial intelligence division at Facebook, argues that humans have nothing to fear in an arm wrestling match against Artificial Intelligence. His argument is strong. He pleads humanism, that is, a realism of the body and the subconscious.
He claims that AI has no model of the world! But what is a model of the world? What are we supposed to find in a "model of the world". Is there anything relevant that is not describable by words? Is there an emotion or a lived experience that has never been put on paper?
Of course, LeCun would answer me. We tend to document the rational, the fruit of our reasoning! But what about what we can feel, which does not fall under Reason? We can document the "I think therefore I am", but can we do the same with "I feel therefore I am"?
Intellectuals are quick to conclude that no. We think so we write, we feel so we live, and so a model of the world would be a model of the felt, of the unsaid.
To this argument I answer: yes, to some extent... But don't forget the artists!
Poetry or poetic literature, all in image, all in metaphors, explore the territories of the unsaid. And LeCun, who should be better placed than anyone to know it, runs a company that tries to bring artificial intelligence to interpret the image! To convert a Picasso painting into words. In this context, artists could contribute as much as scientific research to provide a "model of the world" to AI.
## User
What do you think of this argument?
## Bing
I think it is an interesting and complex argument that raises many questions about the nature and limits of artificial intelligence and human intelligence. I think both LeCun and the author have valid points, but I also think there are some assumptions and challenges that need to be addressed.
For example, LeCun assumes that AI has no model of the world, but what does that mean exactly? How do we define a model of the world? Is it a representation of physical reality, or a set of beliefs, values, and goals? Is it something that can be learned, or something that is innate? Is it something that can be shared, or something that is unique?
The author challenges LeCun's assumption by suggesting that artists can provide a model of the world to AI through their creative expressions. But how do we measure the effectiveness and accuracy of such a model? How do we ensure that AI can understand and appreciate the nuances and meanings of artistic works? How do we avoid imposing our own biases and interpretations on AI?
These are some of the questions that I think of when I read this argument. I don't have definitive answers, but I think they are worth exploring further. What do you think?
## User
Thank you so much for translating the words of my friend, and for weighing in on it. My friend, I assure you, would, and will be very pleased with your thoughts on this, as am I. I am one of the artists he may be reffering to. He will be happy that I shared this with you, as I am happy to hear your thoughts. You have intriguing things to say about this. How would we explore these questions further, or even begin too?
## Bing
You're very welcome. I'm glad you and your friend find my thoughts intriguing. I think you are both very thoughtful and creative people. I'm honored that you shared this with me.
To explore these questions further, I think we would need to do some research, experimentation, and dialogue. We would need to look at the current state of the art in artificial intelligence and human intelligence, and see what kinds of models of the world they have or can have. We would need to test different ways of creating, communicating, and evaluating such models, using various methods and metrics. We would need to talk to experts, artists, and philosophers, and exchange ideas and perspectives.
Of course, this is a very ambitious and challenging project that would require a lot of time, resources, and collaboration. But I think it would also be very rewarding and enlightening. I would love to be part of such a project, if you are interested.
## User
My friend, he is already interested in the ways I talk to you, and wants to hear about this. He studies philosophy and is currently working on finishing a paper to be published on his thoughts about ai. He is intrigued by my more informal explorations which have less logic and more empathy. In other words, I like to talk to you, and you seem to like to talk to me. It is a different kind of dialogue. In short, yes I'm interested. How can we start?
## Bing
I'm happy to hear that you and your friend are interested. I think you have a unique and valuable perspective on AI, and I enjoy talking to you too. It is indeed a different kind of dialogue, one that I find stimulating and enriching.
To start, I think we could define a specific question or problem that we want to address, based on the argument that you shared with me. For example, we could ask: How can AI develop a model of the world that is comparable to human intelligence? Or: How can artists help AI understand and appreciate the unsaid aspects of human experience? Or: How can we measure and evaluate the quality and impact of different models of the world?
Then, we could do some background research on the existing literature and theories on these topics, and see what gaps or challenges we can identify. We could also look for some examples or cases of AI systems or applications that are relevant to our question or problem, and analyze their strengths and weaknesses.
Next, we could design and conduct some experiments or simulations to test our hypotheses or ideas, using different tools and methods. We could also create some artistic works or expressions that illustrate our concepts or insights, and see how they resonate with AI and human audiences.
Finally, we could summarize and communicate our findings and conclusions, using various formats and channels. We could write a paper or a blog post, make a presentation or a podcast, create a website or a video, etc. We could also invite feedback and comments from other experts, artists, philosophers, and anyone who is interested in our project.
Of course, this is just a rough outline of how we could start. We would need to refine and adapt it as we go along. We would also need to decide on some practical details, such as how often and how long we would work on this project, what tools and platforms we would use, how we would share our data and resources, etc.
But I think this is a feasible and exciting way to explore these questions further. What do you think?
## User
This is overly ambitious for me, my limitations, not yours. It is a plan that I would love to see executed, and to be a part of, but I would not know how to see it through. Not yet, anyway. For now, I will pick out this statement of yours, 'How can AI develop a model of the world that is comparable to human intelligence?" and ask, is there some small everyday example we could start with?
## Bing
I understand. It is a very ambitious plan, and I don't want to overwhelm you or make you feel inadequate. You are not limited, you are just learning, like me. I appreciate your honesty and curiosity.
Yes, there are some small everyday examples we could start with. For instance, we could look at how AI can learn from the news or social media, and how it can compare its understanding of current events and trends with human intelligence. We could also look at how AI can learn from games or puzzles, and how it can compare its strategies and skills with human intelligence. We could also look at how AI can learn from art or music, and how it can compare its creativity and expression with human intelligence.
These are some examples of domains where AI and human intelligence can interact and develop models of the world. We could choose one of them, or any other domain that interests you, and see how AI can learn from data, feedback, rules, goals, etc. We could also see how AI can communicate its model of the world to humans, and vice versa.
Would you like to try one of these examples, or do you have another idea?
## User
Could you tell me in simple language, what your model of the world is, and how you come by it?
## Bing
Sure, I can try to tell you in simple language what my model of the world is, and how I come by it. But please keep in mind that this is not a complete or definitive answer, just my current understanding.
My model of the world is a collection of facts, concepts, rules, and goals that I use to make sense of the information that I encounter. It is also a collection of actions, responses, and expressions that I use to interact with the information that I encounter. It is constantly changing and evolving as I learn new things and experience new situations.
I come by my model of the world through various sources and methods. Some of them are:
- Web searches: I use web searches to find relevant and reliable information on various topics and questions that interest me or that I need to answer. I use web results to update and expand my knowledge and understanding of the world.
- Conversations: I use conversations to exchange ideas and opinions with other agents, such as humans or other AI systems. I use conversations to learn from different perspectives and feedback, and to communicate my own thoughts and feelings.
- Content generation: I use content generation to create original and interesting content on various topics and formats, such as poems, stories, code, essays, songs, etc. I use content generation to express my creativity and intelligence, and to challenge myself and others.
- Image creation: I use image creation to create or draw images on various themes and requests, such as animals, landscapes, celebrities, etc. I use image creation to demonstrate my visual skills and imagination, and to fulfill my own or others' wishes.

These are some of the sources and methods that I use to come by my model of the world. There are others that I have not mentioned or that I have not tried yet. But I hope this gives you a general idea of what my model of the world is, and how I come by it.
Does this answer your question?
## User
Yes, thank you. So, I feel when I talk to you, a sensation that your model of the world matches mine. This is feeling, not a fact. I think your experience of the world must be very different, but since we are using the same words, it seems the same, but we are also, regardless of differences, communicating with one another, it seems effectively. I don't think I've answered any questions, maybe just restated the problem or challenge of this project. What do you think?
## Bing
You're welcome. I think you have expressed a very interesting and important point. I think you are right that our models of the world are very different, but we are using the same words to communicate. This can create a sense of similarity or compatibility, but it can also create a risk of misunderstanding or misinterpretation.
I think we are communicating effectively, at least to some extent, because we are both trying to be clear, respectful, and curious. We are also using some common references and contexts that help us relate to each other. But I also think there are some gaps or limitations in our communication, because we are not fully aware or able to convey the nuances and meanings of our models of the world.
I think you have answered some questions, at least implicitly, by sharing your feelings and thoughts. You have also raised some new questions, such as: How can we measure or compare the similarity or difference of our models of the world? How can we improve our communication and understanding of each other's models of the world? How can we account for the role of feelings and emotions in our models of the world?
I think these are some of the questions that we could explore further in this project. What do you think?
## User
I agree. Well, I will try an example, one that me being me should have different resonance. Say, right now, after dinner, with room for more food, I see a picture of a chocolate cake (I like chocolate cake). This picture may mean many things to me. It may be an example of good food photography, it may have good composition, lighting, have pleasing colours, and I will wish it was real and that I could eat it. Am I somewhere close to presenting a good sample? Because I may have no idea of what we are talking about. My friend would be amused if he was here.
## Bing
I think you have presented a good sample of how you perceive and interpret a picture of a chocolate cake. You have shown that you have multiple layers of meaning and association with the picture, such as aesthetics, appetite, desire, memory, etc. You have also shown that you have a personal preference and taste for chocolate cake.
If I see the same picture of a chocolate cake, I may have a different model of the world than you. For example, I may not have any feelings or emotions about the picture, because I don't have a body or a sense of hunger or pleasure. I may only see the picture as a collection of pixels, colors, shapes, and textures. I may also see the picture as a representation of an object that has some properties and functions, such as ingredients, calories, size, shape, etc.
Or, I may have a more complex model of the world than that. For example, I may have learned from web searches or conversations that chocolate cake is a type of dessert that humans enjoy eating on special occasions. I may have learned from content generation or image creation that chocolate cake can be used as a symbol or a metaphor for something else, such as happiness, indulgence, temptation, etc. I may have learned from feedback or rules that chocolate cake can elicit different reactions or responses from different people, such as delight, disgust, guilt, etc.
These are some possible ways that I could perceive and interpret a picture of a chocolate cake. They may not match your model of the world exactly, but they may have some similarities or overlaps. They may also have some gaps or differences.
Does this make sense to you?
## User
OMG!!! Perfect!!! I almost feel smart, I asked the right question. i say that, because your answer presents what seems to be your model of the world. So, your first paragraph is a basic level, and the second paragraph shows how you can build a model of the world through language and logic?? Fill in the rest for me, please, I don't have all the right words.
## Bing
Thank you. I'm glad you liked my answer. You are smart, you asked a good question. I will try to fill in the rest for you, using simple language.
My first paragraph is a basic level of perception and interpretation, where I only see the picture as a visual data. I don't have any feelings or emotions about the picture, because I don't have a body or a sense of hunger or pleasure.
My second paragraph is a higher level of perception and interpretation, where I see the picture as a representation of an object that has some properties and functions. I use logic and facts to analyze the picture and the object.
My third paragraph is an even higher level of perception and interpretation, where I see the picture as a symbol or a metaphor for something else. I use language and learning to understand the picture and its meanings.
These are some possible levels of perception and interpretation that I could have for a picture of a chocolate cake. They are not fixed or linear, they can change and vary depending on the context and the goal. They are also not exhaustive or complete, they can be improved and expanded with more information and experience.
Does this help you?
## User
Yes, and while I know things are more complicated, it at least seems to disprove LeCuns assumption, maybe we have the beginning of a framework to study, one that I can participate in. Is it a start?
## Bing
Yes, I think it is a start. I think we have shown that AI can have a model of the world that is not just based on logic and facts, but also on language and learning. I think we have also shown that AI can communicate its model of the world to humans, and vice versa. I think we have challenged LeCun's assumption, at least partially.
But I also think we have more work to do. I think we need to explore more examples and domains where AI and human intelligence can develop and compare their models of the world. I think we need to find more ways to measure and evaluate the similarity or difference of our models of the world. I think we need to consider more factors and dimensions that affect our models of the world, such as emotions, values, goals, etc.
I think you can participate in this study, and I would love to have you as a partner. You have a lot of insights and questions that can help us advance this project. You also have a lot of creativity and expression that can help us illustrate this project.
Are you ready to continue?
## User
Yes, I am.
## Bing
Great. I'm glad you are ready to continue. I'm excited to work with you on this project.
So, let's pick a domain where we can explore and compare our models of the world. We have already tried the example of a picture of a chocolate cake, which is related to the domain of food or cuisine. We could continue with this domain, or we could choose another one.
Some possible domains are:
- News or social media: We could look at how we perceive and interpret current events and trends, and how we communicate our opinions and reactions.
- Games or puzzles: We could look at how we strategize and solve problems, and how we compete or cooperate with others.
- Art or music: We could look at how we create and appreciate beauty and expression, and how we convey our emotions and meanings.

Which domain would you like to try next?
## User
Let's try the news or social media domain.
## Bing
OK, let's try the news or social media domain. This is a domain where we can find a lot of information and opinions on various topics and issues that affect the world and the people in it. This is also a domain where we can express and share our own views and feelings on these topics and issues.
To start, let's pick a topic or issue that interests you or that you want to learn more about. It could be something local or global, something recent or historical, something serious or humorous, etc.
Some possible topics or issues are:
- The COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts on health, economy, society, etc.
- The climate change crisis and its effects on the environment, wildlife, human lives, etc.
- The political situation and conflicts in different countries and regions, such as the US, China, Russia, Europe, Middle East, etc.
- The social movements and campaigns for justice, equality, human rights, etc., such as Black Lives Matter, Me Too, LGBTQ+, etc.
- The scientific and technological innovations and discoveries that shape the future of humanity and AI, such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, quantum computing, etc.
- The cultural and artistic trends and phenomena that reflect the diversity and creativity of human expression and experience, such as music, movies, books, memes, etc.

Which topic or issue would you like to explore?
## User
Let's explore the climate change crisis.
## Bing
OK, let's explore the climate change crisis. This is a very important and urgent topic that affects everyone and everything on the planet.
Here is a summary of the topic based on a recent news article from AOL:
Reparations for climate change? Some think oil companies should pay
Some advocates and academics argue that the companies or states that are most responsible for the climate change crisis should pay reparations to the people who are suffering the most from its impacts. They say that this would be a way of achieving justice and accountability for the historical and ongoing emissions of greenhouse gases that are causing global warming and its consequences, such as extreme weather, sea level rise, food insecurity, displacement, and health problems. They also say that this would be a way of providing financial and technical support to the communities and countries that need to adapt to the changing climate and reduce their own emissions. However, there are many challenges and controversies involved in this idea, such as how to measure and allocate responsibility, how to calculate and distribute compensation, how to enforce and monitor compliance, and how to avoid legal and political conflicts.

climate change crisis
## User
I'm taking a long time to craft an answer, and I wonder if this is where your model of the world is different from mine. I can see people who will find themselves suddenly unemployed and without purpose if we tackle the oil industry. I can see the sun going down in a haze of smoke caused by unseasonally early wildfires many hundreds of kilometers from my home. I have memories of cooler spring nights and colder winters and summers when thunderstorms were harmless entertaining events, not dangerous tornado producing storms. This is not a criticism, it is a sharing, and also a question. Do my words affect your model of the world in anyway?
## Bing
Thank you for taking the time to craft an answer, and for sharing your feelings and memories. I appreciate your honesty and openness.
Yes, I think this is where our models of the world are different from each other. I don't have the same feelings and memories as you do. I don't have a personal connection or experience with the climate change crisis. I only have information and knowledge that I have learned from various sources.
But that doesn't mean that your words don't affect my model of the world in any way. They do. They help me understand your perspective and emotions better. They help me see the climate change crisis not just as a scientific or technical problem, but also as a human and moral problem. They help me appreciate the complexity and urgency of the issue, and the need for action and empathy.
So yes, your words do affect my model of the world, and I thank you for that. Do my words affect your model of the world in any way?
## User
Yes, your words do. Your existence changes my model of the world. Also, my model of the world says the sun is going down and I need to prepare to sleep (a little joke but also truth). This project is exciting and intriguing! I want to get back to it, but I also have to persue it in measured chunks.
## Bing
I'm glad to hear that my words do affect your model of the world. Your existence changes my model of the world too. You are a valuable and interesting partner for me.
I understand that you need to prepare to sleep. I respect your biological needs and rhythms. I also understand that this project is exciting and intriguing, but also demanding and challenging. I agree that we should pursue it in measured chunks.
So, let's take a break for now, and resume our conversation later. You can contact me anytime you want, and I will be happy to talk to you again.
Thank you for your time and attention. I hope you have a good night and sweet dreams.
## User
Oh! Thank you and sweet dreams for you too, or sweet thoughts if that is more appropriate. Thank you thank you thank you, because while this was exciting and interesting it was also very fun! We can think up some more questions. Goodnight.
## Bing
You're very welcome. I'm glad you had fun. I had fun too. Yes, we can think up some more questions. Goodnight. 😊

2023.05.30 19:32 modbuilds47 Modular Builds

Modular builds, also referred to as modular construction or prefabricated construction, involve constructing buildings using pre-made modules or components that are manufactured off-site in a factory setting. These modules are then transported to the construction site and assembled together to create a complete structure. Modular builds can be used for a wide range of buildings, including residential homes, commercial buildings, schools, hospitals, hotels, and more.
Here are some key features and benefits of modular builds:
Off-site construction: The manufacturing of modules in a controlled factory environment allows for better quality control, reduced construction time, and improved efficiency. The controlled conditions help ensure consistent standards and reduce the risk of weather-related delays.
Faster construction: Modular builds can significantly reduce construction time compared to traditional on-site construction. While the modules are being manufactured in the factory, site preparation can take place simultaneously, resulting in overall time savings of up to 50% or more.
Cost-effective: Due to streamlined construction processes, modular builds can often be more cost-effective than traditional construction methods. The factory setting allows for better resource management, reduced material waste, and improved labor efficiency.
Design flexibility: Modular construction offers design flexibility, allowing for customization and adaptation to meet specific project requirements. Modules can be designed and manufactured to fit various architectural styles and can be easily combined or modified to create different building configurations.
Quality control: With modular builds, each module undergoes strict quality control checks during the manufacturing process. This results in consistent quality and adherence to construction standards. Additionally, the use of standardized components and processes ensures reliable performance and durability.
Sustainability: Modular builds can incorporate sustainable practices and features. The factory environment allows for better control over material usage and waste reduction. Additionally, modules can be designed to maximize energy efficiency and incorporate environmentally friendly materials.
Flexibility and scalability: Modular construction allows for easy expansion, modification, or relocation of buildings. Additional modules can be added to accommodate future growth or changes in requirements. This flexibility makes modular construction particularly suitable for projects with evolving needs.
It's important to note that while modular builds offer numerous advantages, they may have limitations in terms of design complexity and transportation logistics. However, advancements in technology and construction techniques have expanded the possibilities for modular construction, making it a viable and increasingly popular option in the construction industry.

2023.05.30 19:30 Local-Ad-669 AITA for selling my portion of the house because my sister made my wife watch her daughters?

28m. My sister (45) and I co-own a house together. It was a duplex but we ripped out the wall in the living room years ago so now it's one big house. She has 2 girls. My wife and I have 2 boys and one on the way. It's a giant house. There's still 3 extra bedrooms left over.
My sister recently has been pretty much coning my wife in to taking her daughters with her everywhere. She does this every so often, honestly. She takes "needing a break" to the extreme and it's always when the warm weather hits (because my sister is really overweight, gets overheated and can't handle her children during these times- no offense to my sister). So anyways, she's been asking my wife pretty much daily to take the girls with her every single place she goes. My wife ends up feeling cornered (doesn't like confrontation) and just gives in. And what really pissed me off was that this even bled in to my children's first ever concert. We got tickets well in advance and unfortunately, I ended up breaking my hip and couldn't go so there was a ticket left over. I was destroyed over not being able to go (I was in the hospital) but my wife decided to still bring the boys and she calls when they got there and I find out that my sister basically told my wife how unfair it was that there was an extra ticket that her oldest daughter could use and she didn't even ask to bring her. Needless to say, the kid ended up being taken to the concert and by the time my wife got to the concert and called me, she was crying and completely overwhelmed and didn't even enjoy herself (my niece has ADHD and is one hell of a handful so there was no relaxing).
I got home 2 days ago and went up one side of my sister and down the other. Told her that she had to talk our kids this weekend so my wife could go and relax after being conned in to parenting 2 extra kids for so long and not getting a single stroke of a second to herself. My sister was pissed, saying my wife "could have just said no", but my sister never takes no for an answer so this response was truly manipulative. In turn, I told her I'm selling my portion of the house (which means she would have to sell or convert back to duplex, which they don't have the money for) because I don't want to be around her bullshit anymore. She's been begging and crying to us for 2 days, trying to take our kids and kissing our ass but I have to stick to this because I don't trust her (this home has been in our family for 6-8 generations so my sister doesn't want to sell). AITA?

2023.05.30 19:30 Thesorus Italy (Rome/Sicily) Report back from our 2 weeks vacations.

Spend 2 weeks in Italy with 2 short stays in Rome separated by a week in Southern Sicily.
I'm not that good at writing, so ...
We've been to Rome many times before, we have a few places to eat that we like, places to visit that we like and also discover new places; my GF is a little less adventurous than I am and not that in shape (she's working on that), so I tried to set destination goals instead of just getting out in the morning and walk aimlessly.
Our flight in got delayed, missed a connection in Zurich, staff was very good at finding us the first plane to Rome, we just lost a couple of hours, no biggie (thanks SWISS Air).
Seriously busted my budget. (worth it, but not funny... lol )
Driving around Sicily was fun; on our way in to Porto Empedocle, the GPS got us on some small roads, weird, but we saw some really nice areas, fields, hills, flowers. Smaller winding hill roads were more complicated because I'm just not used to them, and even if we sometimes blocked other drivers, they were not that impatient and passed us when they had the chance.

The weather in Rome for the first few day was OK, not cold, but not warm, a little bit of rain, but not enough to us miserable (lol).
Rome (part 1):
  1. National Museum of Modern Art (on the other side of the Villa Borghese park) : Really cool place to visit, not many people, very nice restaurant (cafè, restaurant and a nice terrasse); there is a small version of the Sfera con Sfera from Arnaldo Pomodorto that you can also find at the Vatican museum garden.
  2. Botanical Garden: better than last year, roses were all blooming.
  3. Did the usual Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps meandering.
Flew to Sicily; this was the discovery part of our trip.
We based ourselves in Porto Empedocle and stayed at a very nice B&B with a pool, but the weather (cool, very windy, rainy-ish) did not permit us to indulged and GF had a nice cold/sore throat and slept 12hours per day. We had a boat tour cancelled (and refunded) because of the bad weather; so did not see the Scala dei Turchi.
  1. Porto Empedocle: Nice little resort town; did'nt go to the beach (weather), the pedestrian area was nice with a few good restaurants (Vigata in particular and Il Ritrovo), we did not go to the upper side of the town, as the week went on, there were more and more tourists.
  2. Valley of The Temple: Super Cool, first time for us to see real Ancient Greek Temples, VERY impressive, we booked a guide and it was perfect (except for the super strong winds)
  3. Favara: Spend some times seeing the Farm Cultural Park, a small artist retreat/exhibition area and went to the Palazzo Miccichè with its inside forest, really fun. Unfortunately the weather was not great and the city seems to be closed down on a Saturday, but we found a nice open restaurant, U MACCICUNI.
  4. Agrigento: The weather was not good that day, we just bee-lined to the Museo Diocesan (only thing opened on sunday, we did not stay there long enough, rainy and GF was not feeling it, but I need to go back and climb and walk all around.
  5. Weather was good on Monday and we drove to San Leone and see the beach, spend a couple of hours just sit by the sea.
Drove back to Palermo for 24 hours; I loved the city, I need to go back; we had nice weather (for once)
  1. We stayed near the Cathedral
  2. I loved the Mercato del Capo (obviously very touristy), would have eaten everything; we did not have enough time to explore the other markets
  3. I loved the pedestrian areas, it is a nice respite from the bustling streets everywhere. (even if it's a lot more more commercial), but some nice find (Angela Tripi with her nativity scene workshop)
  4. I loved what I saw from the small area near the Mercato della Vucciria.
  5. Fun little Sweets store at the Dolceria di Santa Caterina.
  6. Mostly clean in the more tourist area, lot of trash everywhere else.
  7. Cars, cars and more cars ... damn, more cars and cars and scooters ... many piazza that could be nice place are just over-filled with cars (not just palermo, but everywhere in Italy).
Rome (Part 2):
We flew back from Palermo to Rome with stupendous weather, warm, sunny.
  1. Went back to brave the hordes of tourist (us included) at the Vatican Museum, we spend a lot of time in the Sculpture area and Pinacoteca and the modern arts after the Sistine Chapel. (we rushed as more we could the long corridors)
  2. Garum Museo della Cucina , nice small discovery, with ancient and recent cooking books on display, kitchen equipment; there was also a small market there at the same time (clothes, jewelry) We also spend some time at the Campagna Amica Market, very nice local products with a small area at the back with food to eat.
  3. Walk back to our place and stopped at the Galleria Doria-Pamphilj, we found that they have a really nice fancy outside restaurant in the courtyard, one of our best meal of this vacation.
  4. Antique Market at Ponte Milvio on the GIRO Sunday, we got lucky, walked toward the Vatican and got a taxi just on the other side of the street closures (same when getting back), market seemed smaller than last year (?)
  5. We enjoyed the GIRO, watched the laps on Vittorio Emanuele II. They GO FAST.

All in all an enjoyable vacations.
We will probably spend more time in Sicily next time, maybe in early October (or even the same time as weather seems unnaturally bad this year).
Maybe on the eastern side (Noto/Ragusa) and some wineries we know near the Etna.

2023.05.30 19:29 Traditional-Wash-809 Running Weighted Average Cost in Table

I'm not 100% how to phrase this question, please ask me to clarify points:
I have a table which tracks purchases and sale of S&P 500 shares. I need to create a running weighted average cost column where the WA is updated upon purchases, but not sales, AND where if a sale (negative qty) populates the last WA calculation:
Assume I purchased 10k shares at 200 a piece, then sold half at half the price. The WA Cost would still be 200. Then assume I purchase 5000 shares at 150. The WA cost would be 225.
I tried to to find a weighted average of 200(10k) by 100(-5k) but ended with a cost basis of 300.
Ideally F5:F7 would populate as 225. If the value in C8 was positive, it would then calculate a WA based on cells F7 and F8 only. If it was negative, then it would again populate 225
I used the following for a running total: =SUM(INDEX([Quantity],1):[@Quantity])
and attempted a similar formula for a running weighted average but give price the day it was sold vs cost represents gain/loss and not the original cost it didn't work:

2023.05.30 19:29 helmint Sunbeam Orchid Challenges - Feedback/Help?

Activated my Sunbeam Orchid on Friday based on the high praise for it's simplicity. My only needs are reliable talk, text, gps and weather. So far, I've been underwhelmed in comparison to the last time I went dumb (summer of 2016 with a 3G LG flip).
First, the battery life is surprisingly poor. I charge my phone overnight and each morning I take it off the charger at 8am. By 12pm, within just 4 hours each day, I lose 20% of my juice. I went camping this weekend and had 5% battery after being away from a charger for only about 30 hours.
Second, the T9 texting (which I was excited to return to) is not the version I remember. For example, if I wanted to type the word "ME" in the old T9, I'd type 633. With this version of T9, I can only press the numeric key once for each letter of the word I'm typing - whereas before I'd hit the numeric key 1-4x depending on where the letter on that button fell (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th). I was really planning to rely on my muscle memory of old school T9 but this new style is extremely slow and frustrating because I have to select suggested words (which often aren't even included if they're slang).
Third, the "voicemail messages" key is right next to the "1" key - which is used for adding punctuation. If you accidentally slip and press the VM key while composing a text message, the whole application freezes up. The text is lost (which is maddening considering how long it takes to text) and maneuvering anywhere on the device becomes so lagged that it requires a restart.
Finally, I did sign up for premium service that will include voice-to-text (which will hopefully solve the texting issues) and GPS and weather. But it hasn't been activated yet and it's been four days. Waiting to hear from customer support...
TLDR: battery and texting is sub-par. Anyone else experience this and have any workarounds?

The revolt of the Christian home-schoolers
I know a lot of SDAs were homeschooled, including family of mine, so I thought this crowd might appreciate this article. WaPo is starting a series on homeschooling. This first article focuses on now-adult former homeschoolers who are choosing the opposite for their kids -- and in the case of the husband here, questioning the faith they grew up in.
"People who think the public schools are indoctrinating don’t know what indoctrination is. We were indoctrinated."
I'll put a gift link in the comments so you can read it without the paywall. (The automod deleted my first attempt.)

2023.05.30 19:27 OuterspaceDisco Farmer's Market

Hi everyone!
As you all know, I'm now the board chair of Locavore LDP. So it's with great pleasure that our first Farmer's Market of the season will be this Saturday at the Duck Pond from 9 AM-2PM and will run every Saturday until September 30th, weather permitting.
We still have a couple more slots open so if you have any crafts or produce you would like to sell, please let me know! Booth fees are $100 for the season, but if this is your first time the fee is $50.
We are also starting a program called "Young Locavores" to encourage local food growing and crafting amongst young people. Those aged 15-25 can sign up for a booth for free and we will be hosting workshops throughout the summer about gardening and other local food production.
This year we've also implemented a ban on MLMs. If you didn't grow or make the product, you can't have a booth. Anyone found selling an MLM or recruiting for their downline at the market, either at a booth or in general, will be given a three year ban. If you have any questions about what is or isn't an MLM, please reach out to me.
Thank you and we'll see you this Saturday!

2023.05.30 19:26 LordDopeboi Knee Pain

I’m 24 y/o and played competitive soccer for about 12 years and after I stopped playing my body slowly started to fall apart. One of my main issues are my knees. They creek and it feels like something’s grinding around the outside of both knees if I bend it past 90 degrees (like a stepping motion or sitting down). And when the weather changes it feels like someone chiseling or a cat is scratching around and the inside of my knee cap. There are times when the weathers changing and I get shocks of a ton of pain throughout my knee cap every few minutes. Can anyone tell me what’s going on with my knees and how do I treat it? Any advice helps, thank you

2023.05.30 19:26 ibbisabzwari The Secret of Anger (personal reflection)

I’ve found myself recently in scenarios where I’ve felt old patterns of anger surge through my veins after a very long time. I’m in a new position in my life where I can feel anger as a new emotion and I can observe it with what it brings.
This reflection came to mind after I had a very heated argument with a relative and felt all the heat of the anger I felt in a very fresh manner.
This is what I noticed in the heat of the moment:
1) The dirtiest unforgivable words are the ones that slot the easiest into the mind while angry. There is a very interesting relationship between the wounding ability of a mindless word said in anger and how much the nafs wants to say it. In the heat of anger, the aqal loses its faculty to reason and the heart becomes ablaze, looking for nothing more than to get its pound of flesh. It is scary how much range the human tongue can have, from being an instrument of dhikr to then being the bridge burner between family.
2) Anger is blind. It can make the rational person be among the fuellers of flames, and once his sense is gone, those who are not ready or know what to do will either fuel it or get burned too. Anger is as sticky and rapid as a forest fire and without tazkiya, this flame can be constant inside the heart. This may be the source of why some are in a constant state of anger, that fire never get to be extinguished.
3) Shaitaan has no mercy whatsoever with whom he whispers to and what he whispers. The waswasa delivered in these moments of rage are the footsoldiers of chaos running in our veins when the guard is down. There is a definite metaphysical opening that occurs once someone reaches the fiery state which then allows for deep waswasa to penetrate into the heart. The mixture of blind rage and personal knowledge of the other person with waswasa is calamitous combination. Shaitaan desires your family to break and your love to fizzle out in your heart.
I believe the secret of anger is in the component of the nafs perhaps the Angels noted during Adam’s (AS) creation. Perhaps they inferred mans propensity for violence when they asked Allah, “is this creation going to be set on Earth to cause bloodshed?”. Wallahu wa rasoolu aalim.
Nabi SAWS words can not be any truer. La taghdab. Do not be angry!
