This is part of this week's series on Caro-Kann Defence (1. e4 c6) Opening line: 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5
Opening name: Caro-Kann Defense
Board image: https://i.imgur.com/Jgmdm0u.png
Lichess board: https://lichess.org/analysis/pgn/1.+e4+c6+2.+d4+d5++

White: 22617 (32.02%)
Black: 16797 (23.78%)
Draws: 31214 (44.19%)
This is initial position of the Caro-Kann. A semi-open game that tends to contain lines with minor piece play. Note that Bd3?! dxe4 Bxe4 Nf6 gives Black the Initiative.
Most popular responses
- e5 (Caro-Kann Defence - Advance Variation) The advance variation was widely regarded as inferior for many years, owing chiefly to the strategic demolition that Aron Nimzowitsch (playing as White) suffered at the hands of José Capablanca in one of their games at the New York 1927 tournament: Black almost always plays 3...Bf5 to free the light-squared bishop outside the pawn chain, but, when trying to avoid the weight of theory associated with this line, can play 3...c5. The Advance Variation has since been revitalized by aggressive lines such as the Bayonet Attack (4.Nc3 e6 5.g4) favored by Latvian Grandmaster Alexei Shirov or the less ambitious variation 4.Nf3 e6 5.Be2 c5 6.Be3 popularized by English Grandmaster Nigel Short. (Lichess analysis) (Wikibooks) (26675141 games)
- exd5 (Caro-Kann Exchange Variation) White exchanges on d5, and black almost always responds with cxd5. This forms opposite-wing majorities. (Lichess analysis) (Wikibooks) (20507217 games)
- Nc3 (Caro-Kann Defence:Classical Variation) The vast majority of times, black plays the solid 3...dxe4, one of the most well-studied of the Caro-Kann lines. Black has alternatives to avoid the weight of theory, although 3...e6, blocking the bishop, and effectively forming a French, with one tempo less, seems a dubious line. (Lichess analysis) (Wikibooks) (16929226 games)
- Nd2 (Caro-Kann Defence) After the commonly-played 3...dxe4 4. Nxe4 this transposes into the main Classical Variation, as if 3.Nc3 had been played. (Lichess analysis) (Wikibooks) (2568779 games)
- f3 (Caro-Kann Defence) This line is also called the Fantasy variation. White bolsters his f3-pawn and hopes to obtain a full pawn centre should black take at e4. (Lichess analysis) (Wikibooks) (2346725 games)

2023.05.31 11:42 AgreeableIncrease405 Hypopigmentation after microneedling
I had a boxcar scar that I treated with microneedling at 24 January this year. Surprisingly i had good result for one session of treatment. The boxcar scar got filled upto 60-70% after cell regeneration but after growing new tissues the scar area is hypopigmented. I thought it would go away with time but it has been 4 months and it's still hypopigmented,no damn change. Does anyone else got hyperpigmentation after scar treatment? If yes then how long did it take for the hyperpigmentation to go away ? Did you use any product for treating it ? Please help me 🙏🙏🙏, it looks bad as it's directly infront my face 😔😔

2023.05.31 11:42 Happy-Perception-823 Timeline of leaving a BPD Partner
Just wanted to share my experience so far in regards to leaving my wife of 7 years for others to see how long this process can take and some of the things I went through / going through.
Early October 2022 - I have a full mental breakdown after years of arguments over 'minor' issues which drove her to constantly fight with me. Prior to this I tried everything I could to avoid upsetting her but nothing worked. I was constantly 'walking on egg shells' i stopped seeing my family and friends in the hope this would help her remain calm. I stopped taking her out places because random things would upset her and cause her to fight with me
Mid October 2022 - We attend relationship counselling together, the counsellor tells her in the first session she is 'too controlling, too dominating and disrespectful' to me. My ex wife disagrees so we switch to another counsellor he goes a step further and tells her 'your the one with the problem here, you don't let your husband even speak'. We both continue individual and joint counselling whilst living together. At this point my mind is a mess and I am thinking about leaving her. She tells me 'she can fix me' I say tell her she is the one who caused me to have this mental break down in the first place. She gets her family to constantly talk at me, they tell me 'you will never be happy with anyone else', 'you will never get into another relationship', 'what your going through is very minor'. No one seems to acknowledge that my mental health is destroyed and all I do is cry non stop every day and want to end my life.
Late October 2022 - My ex wife tells me 'she wishes she never married me' she tells me this for the millionth time during our relationship. She tells me 'you should get back with your ex girlfriend, it wouldn't bother me at all' I finally snap, after hearing this again day in and day out. I make the wrong decision and I ring my ex girlfriend on Instagram. I tell my ex girlfriend I am going through a really tough time and need some support, my ex girlfriend says she has moved on and doesn't want anything to do with me and she has been living on the other side of the world enjoying her life for the past several years. Later that night my ex wife goes through my phone and sees I made 1 phone call to her and she locks me in the bedroom for 3 hours and takes away my cell phone. After 3 hours she forces me to go to my parents house. At 1 am her family turn up and they all accuse me of 'having a 7 year affair' based on 1 phone call I made whilst I was mentally unwell. My family support me and refute this claim. By this time I join an online relationship forum and start talking to other people who are going through a similar situation. I still feel suicidal and think of ways to end my life. I try to reach out to a mens support number but there are wait times of 2 / 3 hours. My ex wife also attacks me and leaves a scar down my arm. My parents see this and later question her on what happens, and she denies it all.
Nov 2022 - My ex wife takes my car keys / house keys / passport away from me and says I am never allowed to return to our marital home. She has now been convinced by her family that I was having an affair for 7 years. During Nov, I am going through the worst time of my life. I feel like I have lost everything, I am now stuck living with my family and have lost access to my house and all my possessions my life is now a mess and I don't know what to do. We continue to attend counselling every week, the counsellor tells her 'he is not having an affair it was 1 phone call'. I acknowledge my mistake and apologise. My ex wife full of anger still refuses to let me back into the house. The counsellor, constantly tells her the marriage will break down unless you forgive him and support him. She says 'if he wants to get back to me, I need access to all his social media, passwords, mobile phones, and everything he does'. The counsellor tells her she is wrong and continues to challenge her on her behaviour. My ex wife allows me to get my possessions but constantly follows me around the house. I was in the bedroom getting my clothes and she wraps her arms around me and begins kissing me, I try to push her away but she continues. I keep pushing her but she doesn't stop. I finally manage to push her away and she again denies anything happens....I bring it up in our next counselling session and she says 'I have no idea what your talking about'.
Dec 2022 - I finally start to feel better, I manage to get my house keys back, I begin to realise living with my parents isn't so bad. I am now in an emotionally stable environment and have no fears of upsetting anyone. Everyday I continue to rebuild my life and get mentally stronger. My friends and family continue to support me. I now realise I was in a toxic relationship, and things were not good. I hear back from a job I applied for in September and they have offered me a position. I start to realise I am turning things around. I now continue to speak daily to this lady online and we begin to realise we have a very strong connection through our past experiences. My ex wife is now noticing I am no longer weak, I have started to speak up to her and she hates it. She starts to query why I haven't returned home and I tell her I have no intention to return home. I tell her during a counselling session 'I want to have a divorce' she is in (apparently) in shock and starts screaming and crying saying she will kill her self..I then notice 15 minutes later on our ring doorbell she is perfectly fine and has gotten home without any issues. The counsellor now says 'we are done', there is no point both of you coming to see me again. I continue to attend weekly for 1 on 1 sessions , my ex wife stops attending counselling. My ex wife now begs me to come back home and 'sleep with her one last time' I refuse.
Late Dec 2022 - I start meeting up with new friends and old friends and begin to become social again. I start to buy all new clothes as since October I lost a significant amount of weight. My ex wife sees I am no longer chasing her and starts telling me she is in hospital and in critical condition. She advises I need to come see her as a her husband. I refuse, as I know her health conditions and feel like this is just a trick. My ex wife leaves the joint owned home and moves back with her parents.
Early January 2023 - My ex wife begins to realise I am going to leave her, she starts to beg me to get back with her. She sends me pages and pages of whatsapp messages telling me how much she loves me and then also saying , 'you will never get into another relationship, no one will want you'. She constantly tells me 'you won't be able to live without me' I continue to ignore these and say I want a divorce. I begin the process of finding a solicitor to help me. Her family begin to threaten my life saying 'I must try again and get back with her'. My ex wife also tells all our joint friends I had an affair for the last 7 years...
Feb 2023 - I continue to develop my social skills and also pass two exams at work. I start to realise I am going to be okay alone. I can manage by myself. She continues to flood me with messages some days begging me back and someday saying she doesn't need me or want me and I was a terrible husband . I also find out by this time, she has been on several dating sites for the last 6 weeks and has met up with a number of guys....I don't let this bother me and continue to work on my self daily. I continue attending counselling every week. My ex wife moves back into the joint owned home.
March 2023 - I send her an official notice of divorce, she takes the full 14 days to respond and finally begins to acknowledge the process. My counsellor helps me become stronger and helps me get new direction in my life. I now officially start my new job and realise I am actually doing pretty well in life. I travel to the other side of the world on a solo trip (my brain tells me I won't be able to cope without her, but I push through). I travel 16 hours and realise I can do things by myself, I also begin to realise how many beautiful amazing girls there are out there! (Without BPD!) I begin to realise I can do whatever I want...My ex wife starts hoovering me again, saying we should try again.
April 2023 - I advise my ex wife we need to sell the house, she refuses, we going around in circles until she finally agrees. I notice massive changes in my body, I start to build the body I have always dreamed of and start to notice my (thinning) hair is regrowing. My ex wife begins posting racy photos of herself on whatsapps and starts putting up statuses saying 'she is having the time of her life' . She keeps telling me how happy she is without me.
May 2023 - We list our house on the market and it sells within 3 days! We are both shocked, I am super happy, she is really upset. She tries to slow down the process but I put pressure on her to accept the offer. She can easily move back in with her parents (like I have).
Mid May 2023 - She blocks me on whatsapp and says I have ruined her life, she also promises to make me pay for what I have done to her. Her family continue to threaten my life..
Late May 2023 - She unblocks me and says 'we should get back to together' . I receive official notification the divorce will be legally completed by October 2023. I continue to attend counselling train daily at the gym, taking work related exams, and focus on my self. I also begin doing charity work to help other people.
So this is the roller-coaster ride so far, I guess the main point of this post is, things get tough but you can turn around your life if you work at it daily and put yourself first!!

2023.05.31 11:38 richi-carmen What are the advantages of timber pellet mill?
| || | submitted by richi-carmen to pelletmachinery [link] [comments]
The biomass pellet fuel refined by wood pellets is suitable for biomass nuclear power plant, chemical plants, cooking, home heating, showering, boilers, etc, and can change coal burning. The burning ash is rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and so on. Elements, which are recyclable organic plant foods, are popular out there. With the development of wood pellet mills, an increasing number of individuals use biomass pellet fuel, coupled with the energetic promo of the government and also the introduction of farming machinery subsidy tasks, a growing number of individuals come to buy wood pellet mills.
1. What are the advantages of wood pellet mill?
( 1) Decrease the financial burden of farmers
The wood pellet mill aids farmers enhance the usage of biomass energy and also minimize the acquisition of other non-renewable power sources. On the one hand, it lowers money expenditures and also on the other hand saves sources; at the same time, the collection as well as supply of raw materials for timber pellet makers can develop a multitude of new jobs, bringing direct benefits to farmers.
( 2) Improve the rural setting
The sulfur web content as well as ash web content of biomass pellet gas are a lot less than those of coal, which can reduce sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and also ash, which can not only improve the country environment, but likewise decrease the stacking and transport of ash in towns, which contributes to boosting the country environment as well as boost the lifestyle of farmers.

( 3) Clean atmospheric atmosphere
During the cycle from biomass material growth to burning and application, the internet rise of carbon dioxide in the environment is zero.
( 4) Improve power performance
After the use of biomass pellet gas in rural areas, a part of coal sources will certainly be conserved, and also this part of coal can be made use of for power generation or other objectives by large-capacity devices, which not only reduces the lack of coal supply, but likewise prevents the ineffectiveness of country coal use. waste.
( 5) For the awareness of sustainable growth
Biomass pellet fuel is a renewable resource, and its sustainability is better than that of non-renewable energy such as oil, gas, and also coal.
Richi Machinery concentrates on the production of timber pellet mills, sawdust pellet makers, biomass pellet equipments and other devices, and also the high quality can stand the test! What are the demands for raw materials of timber pellet mill equipment?
Biomass timber pellet mill, as a unique fuel pellet machine tools, has actually played a specific function in advertising the current power saving and also emission reduction job. Wood chips, straws, peanut husks, rice husks, bamboo chips, bark and various other biomass materials are processed into pellets with a really thick texture. When these pellets shed, they will not produce sulfides, only generate carbon dioxide and water, no air pollution to the atmosphere! Today, allow's have a look at the demands of wood pellet mill for resources.
Related post: wood pellet production line price
1. The size of the raw material
When the gas wood pellet mill is granulated, there are particular needs for the size of the raw product. If the raw material is as well large or too small, it will certainly influence the output and quality of the biomass gas timber pellet mill, and also cause the situation that the product will certainly not be created or the output will certainly not fulfill the expectations. Usually, the dimension of the raw product must be less than 4MM, yet the certain crushing size still depends on the needed particle diameter.
2. The wetness material of raw materials
When the wood pellet mill is granulated, there are additionally strict needs on the water material of the raw materials Whatever sort of basic materials, the water web content have to be managed between 15% and 18%. The greater the water material, if the water web content is as well reduced, there might be dry in and also dry, as well as the pellets will not create; if the water content is too high, the pellets will be conveniently busted or loose.
3. Composition of basic materials.
The biomass wood granulator can blend as well as granulate different raw materials. The wood pellet mill can not just utilize one type of sawdust to make pellets, but likewise can be blended with other varieties of sawdust or coarse fiber sawdust, and also can also be blended with crop straw, fruit husk, peanut shell, straw, and so on. Nevertheless, the incorporation of other materials may have some influence on the quality of the resulting biomass pellets.
The above is the " demands for resources of biomass wood pellet mill" shared today, I hope it can be useful to every person! Richi Machinery has actually been focusing on the style, production and research and development of wood pellet mill, wood pellet mill plant and also various other tools for several years. It is just one of the earlier makers in the biomass wood pelleting machine market and has strong production experience and also technical stamina.
2023.05.31 11:37 No_Rate_4431 What's wrong with InterBus and EverMore?
As we know, in October last year, after the sudden death of the old CEO of InterBus, Alexander Ducasse was appointed to take his place. He immediately established himself as a very enterprising and courageous leader. “A rising star in the organization, Ducasse has a reputation for innovative thinking.” Alexander Ducasse : “InterBus is an institution, a pillar of New Eden. Yet, New Eden is changing, and we must change with it.””
In just 2 days, InterBus was incorporated into the new EverMore organization, and a week later, the new Paragon project was launched.
And here interesting questions arise. To begin with, I would like to draw attention to some details of those events:
“A number of longer-serving InterBus executives resigned over the deal, stating that "far from safeguarding InterBus's future, the empires have sacrificed it in order to fill their war coffers."”
- Opinion of some InterBus employees
InterBus shares were owned by 4 empires of New Eden. Before EverMore bought them out, tension between the empires was rising - the Stellar Transmuter in Turnur had already been launched, Caldari defeated the Federation in the fight for Athounon. The empires urgently needed money, and when EverMore offered it (and much more than expected), the empires did not care about WHAT and to WHOM they were selling.
Some people at InterBus were very concerned about this.
- EverMore Acquisitions
Immediately after the purchase of InterBus, EverMore bought 7 more companies! Many of them had thing in common - not the best reputation or serious financial problems, or both. And no one could understand why EverMore needed them, and in this lineup. If the acquisition of cloning or implant companies can be explained by the launch of Paragon in the future, the purchase of small media and food companies is still a mystery.
- EverMore internal activities
The in-game description of the corporation also includes the following: “ Critics of EverMore claim that its practice of directing its child companies to outsource key services to each other is a deliberate device to obfuscate their inner workings
The internal logistics and operation of EverMore remains a mystery. It almost does not use external outsourcing, a significant part of the corporation's activities are hidden from prying eyes, and EverMore makes sure that this remains so in the future.
- Project Paragon
Just a week after the creation of EverMore, she launched a project to exchange elite services for capsuleers in exchange for ITEMS. Here the questions arise - WHAT? WHY? What is the ancient method of bartering, why not exchange for currency, loyalty points or capsuleer services (quests)?
The somewhat strange decision of the implementation of Paragon's services can have many explanations. I'll give you one thing: perhaps bartering with capsuleers is EverMore's way of fighting corporate espionage. If EverMore needs something that it can't get through internal outsourcing, it will have to be bought. Buying large quantities of something in New Eden is difficult to hide, and even if you work through a chain of shell companies, it is possible to find the source of the transaction (especially for regulatory authorities). Receiving items from Capsuleers creates an almost UNLIMITED and UNCONTROLLED purchasing method that no one can track - there are many Capsuleers, they report to no one. It is almost impossible to track the exact number of transactions and their composition.
Also, don't forget that Paragon's director is IRIS, the first AI director. Perhaps Ducasse just loves innovation. The AI as a boss has a number of advantages, including - it is executive, strictly obeys the given program, does not ask unnecessary questions and has large computing power. But if EverMore suddenly needs to hide certain purchases using statistical analysis among millions of regular orders, without attracting unnecessary people and without causing questions from subordinates - AI is the perfect candidate.
Perhaps all this is just a series of coincidences, EverMore is a great company that loves innovation and does not want to reveal its plans to competitors. But if we combine these facts, we get this:
Ducasse (and the group of people he represents) took over as director, took advantage of the political crisis in New Eden, and used InterBus resources to get out of the control of the empires and gain free rein (through buyouts of InterBus shares). He then acquired a number of small companies of low value in a variety of areas, in order to ensure maximum independence from external companies. Some InterBus members quit when they saw what was happening. The work that takes place inside EverMore is unknown to us: what they do, what specialists they attract and in what areas they work - EverMore does everything to keep incognito. They buy ship hulls in large quantities through Paragon - no one is able to find out the exact composition of purchases and their volumes.

Shedding light on the post-pandemic transition How the pre and post-pandemic era has brought a change in the work culture Understanding a variety of workplace models. Risks involved in operating with multiple work models How some employers have tried to overcome these risks and challenges to offer a hassle-free multi-model work environment to employees
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 brought about a monumental shift in the way people work. It became inevitable for the employees as well as for us, the employers, to adopt the remote and hybrid work model.
This may surprise you but the Work from Home scenario was already on the horizon even before the pandemic. According to a report
, remote work has grown by 44% over the last five years, and the number of remote workers in the U.S. increased by 159% between 2005 and 2017. Some renowned organizations, particularly in the tech industry, like Zapier, Buffer, and InVision have been in a fully remote mode for several years before the pandemic. Companies like Automattic, the parent company of WordPress, also promoted remote employees since their founding.
While this digital transformation wasn’t a new discovery, it accelerated rapidly just after the pandemic hit us. As a result, remote and hybrid work models became more prevalent, leading to changes in work practices and technologies. Communication and collaboration tools such as Zoom, Slack, and Microsoft Teams became essential in keeping remote teams connected.
This digital transformation did pose certain challenges, like communicating across time zones, socializing virtually, preventing professional isolation, protecting client data, and avoiding slacking. But it offered more than one could ever imagine.
Moreover, the pandemic led to a shift in employee priorities, with a greater emphasis on work-life balance, mental health, and wellness. It brought about a 360-degree transformation in the work culture, leading to new work practices, technologies, and employee expectations. Employers like me could save on real estate costs, hire and utilize talent globally, mitigate immigration issues and experience productivity gains while employees could enjoy geographic flexibility.
In light of this, I would like to elucidate the variety of workplace models, the risks involved, and how organizations can benefit from multiple work modes.
Understanding a variety of workplace models
When the pandemic arrived, all hands of the employers were on deck. Organizations had to iterate their game plan and adapt to a new reality where remote work became inevitable. As a result, several organizations, including mine, were observed to implement new workplace models to ensure business continuity while maintaining social distancing and other health protocols.
However, as the pandemic continued, it became evident that absolute digital transformation could have long-term benefits including greater flexibility, reduced overhead costs, and increased productivity for some employees. Therefore, many companies have decided to embrace these new models and adopt a more hybrid approach to work.
Some of the prominent workplace models that became prevalent post-pandemic are: Remote work model
: Numerous organizations have accepted remote work as a long-term solution. This model involves allowing employees to work from home or any other location outside of the traditional office environment. Remote work has become possible due to the widespread availability of technology and collaboration tools. Hybrid work model
: This model combines remote work with in-person work. Employees are allowed to work remotely part of the time and come to the office for the other part. A hybrid work model allows for flexibility while still maintaining some level of in-person interaction. ‘Flexible work hours
: I observed that several companies were inclined towards the adoption of flexible work hours to allow employees to work at their own pace. This prototype involves setting flexible start and end times for work, allowing employees to choose their own work hours, and taking breaks as needed. Co-working spaces
: While co-working spaces came in handy for start-ups and sole business owners even before the pandemic, they gained immense popularity post-pandemic. These spaces offer shared working environments that allow employees from different companies to work in the same space. This model offers flexibility, low cost, and a collaborative environment for employees. Decentralized workplace
: In a decentralized workplace model, employees use digital technologies and communication tools to stay connected with their colleagues, such as video conferencing, messaging apps, and project management software. This model provides employees with greater flexibility and work-life balance, as they can avoid commuting and work in an environment that suits their individual preferences.
Overall, each model has its own advantages and disadvantages, it depends on us to choose the one that best aligns with our business goals and the needs of their employees.
Risks involved in operating with multiple work models
Operating with multiple work models can provide many benefits, such as increased flexibility, improved work-life balance for employees, and potential cost savings for employers. However, there are also several risks and challenges involved in operating with multiple work models. Some of these risks include: Communication breakdowns
: Communication in a remote or hybrid work mode can be challenging when employees work in different locations or have different work schedules. Without proper communication tools and strategies in place, misunderstandings, miscommunications, and delays can occur, leading to decreased productivity and missed deadlines. Inconsistent work quality
: When employees work under different models, it can be challenging to ensure consistent work quality and adherence to company standards. Lack of standardization can lead to confusion, errors, and customer dissatisfaction. Security risks
: With employees working from various locations and devices, the risk of cybersecurity breaches increases. Confidential information may be exposed, stolen, or compromised, leading to reputational damage and financial losses. Difficulty in managing remote employees:
Managing remote employees requires a different set of skills and strategies than managing in-office employees. Without proper management, remote workers can become disengaged, feel isolated, and lack direction. Legal and compliance risks:
Operating with multiple work models may pose legal and compliance risks, such as failure to comply with labor laws, tax laws, and regulations specific to each working model.
Operating with multiple work models offer a plethora of benefits, but it also involves risks and challenges. Organizations must carefully consider the risks and develop strategies to mitigate them to ensure that employees remain engaged, productive, and aligned with the company’s goals and values.
Measures taken by employers to mitigate these risks and offer a hassle-free multi-model work environment to employees
Employers have recognized the potential risks and challenges associated with a multi-model work environment, including decreased productivity, reduced collaboration, and poor work-life balance. To overcome these challenges and create a hassle-free work environment, employers have implemented several strategies.
- Implementing flexible scheduling options, such as part-time work and job-sharing, enabling employees to manage their work and personal responsibilities more effectively.
- Introducing remote work arrangements to provide employees with the flexibility to work from anywhere, allowing them to balance their work and personal commitments.
- Investing in technology to facilitate seamless communication and collaboration, including tools like video conferencing, messaging apps, and project management software.
- Providing training and support to employees to help them adapt to new work environments and technologies, including training on cybersecurity and remote work best practices.
- Establishing clear communication channels to keep employees informed about changes to work arrangements, company policies, and other important information.
Employers have sought feedback from employees to understand their concerns and suggestions for improving the multi-model work environment, which has helped them to address issues quickly and make improvements where necessary. Overall, by implementing these strategies, employers can create a hassle-free multi-model work environment that benefits both employees and the organization.
2023.05.31 11:33 scp116 Grieving a friendship.
I was hurt badly by someome I considered a brother. I won't get too into it because it's a very long story but it came down to chosing an abusive manipulator over me. (Abusive to both me and him.)
It feels like cheating to call this grief, but what else can I call it? It's been six months since everything happened but I feel like I haven't moved on at all. I'm stuck in the stages of grief, hopping around each stage with no clear course or direction, and I have no idea how I can actually...heal. None of this is linear, it feels like I haven't moved an inch but it's been half a year already. I feel like I'm stagnating or failing by not making solid progress towards being okay. I'm not as catatonic as I was the first month, I don't cry over it as much, but I'm not...okay. This is still one of the darkest times of my life and I feel so alone. I have people in my life, all of them were hurt by his actions too, but all of them agree I got fucked over uniquely. I feel isolated, and it's hard to explain how much I'm still hurting from this after so long.
I love the friends I have left but they seem to be coping much better than me at this point. I don't know if there's a good way to tell them I haven't really moved on at all, or if I should even tell them at all. They might already know and just think I don't want to talk about it. I don't even know if I would want to talk about it if they asked. It feels like there's nothing left to say, no thoughts left I haven't screamed and cried. No point in repeating myself.
I feel alone. Even after my friends have made it clear they love me and they're here for me, I don't know if I can admit how badly I'm handling this and how little progress I've made in moving on. I don't want to be repetitive, I don't want to bring it up when they couldn't even really do anything about it, I don't have anything new to say. I guess I just... want someone to know it's not over for me. I know I look a lot more like my old self but I don't feel like it sometimes. I don't know if I've changed for good or if I'm just stuck.
I feel so alone and it's nobody's fault but my own.

2023.05.31 11:31 Drdoomblunt Cosmetics are an integral part of most games and I'm sick of predatory mtx systems being okay because they're "just cosmetic"
For some reason, many gamers have fallen into this narrative that bought power is bad. We all universally accept this because it impacts the balance and fairness of the game. If you distill that further though, what you're ultimately saying is that by making yourself stronger through paid options, you're making the game less fun for weaker players, and I think that's a concept people don't apply for cosmetics.
Cosmetics don't generally affect the balance of a game, but they do directly impact the fun of a game. Companies wouldn't sell cosmetics by absolute truckloads if they weren't fun to show off. However, they also have the exact same effect of paid power, they make the game less fun. If you're a collector of items/appearances, well now you have to open your wallet for a complete collection rather than having dedication to a grind. If you want to show off this amazing item you just got from beating a hard boss, who cares, there's a flame covered reskin in the cash shop.
Add onto that, many mtx systems are inherently predatory in design, whether it's obfuscation through currency exchanges, cycling daily shops or battle passes that encourage FOMO, or by creating cultures around "default skins".
Cosmetics are an integral part of the experience for a lot of players. Imagine if tv/movie did something similar? You bought a brand new 4k Blu-ray, but hey it only has 2.1 stereo sound and if you want 5.1 or 7.1 you have to pay extra. It's just sound, you can still watch and hear it just fine in stereo. Oh, you want 10 bit colour instead of 8 bit? Extra $5 please. Cinephiles would go absolutely ballistic if their products were carved up into chunks like video games.

Morning all, have any of you had any interactions with the Segway after-sales division in the uk? submitted by No_Split7569 to NinebotMAX [link] [comments]
My max started losing power and speed at the beginning of the year, around two months ago I opened it up and discovered the motor phase wires had melted and the rear e-break cable had melted into its port on the controller.
Knowing my scooter is out of warranty, I was advised to contact the Segway after sales team by someone claiming to be a Segway employee on their new F-series Reddit group.
I have been emailing back and forth for the last two weeks, they’ve asked for my serial and model number, photo proof of serial number & proof of purchase, I have given them all information requested.
Last week they emailed telling me my serial number doesn’t match in their (uk) system and they have forwarded it directly to Segway and are pending a response.
Photos are of their response today.
2023.05.31 11:28 SillyWalkEnthusiast Let's become friends - Looking for daily chats
Hello, all! I am here because I feel quite alone. The truth is, even though life has its ups and downs, I have a relatively stable and boring life. What I need is a friend. I just feel the longing to connect with someone.
I'd like to meet someone here who is mature and respectful and who would invest in creating a friendship with me gradually over time, as we get more comfortable with each other. I would like to find an interesting personality to learn more about their world, conflicts, and aspirations, to learn new stuff from them, and ultimately become a better person by being their friend.
I'd like to meet someone who is a thoughtful and easy-going person and who would be willing to commit to this friendship. I'd like to meet someone with whom I would feel trusted enough to hear their life story and be trusted by them as I listen to theirs—with no judgments—and accept our struggles as they are. Someone who has a lot to say but hasn't had the opportunity to do so. I would be there for you.
I'd like to meet someone willing to commit to this friendship with the intention of it lasting more than two days, ideally communicating daily and letting the friendship grow without pressure, at its own pace. A friend is all I need, nothing else.
A few words about myself: I'm a person in my twenties from a small corner of Europe. I am a reserved, introverted, and perhaps unnecessarily serious person. I live in my own world. I'm a hopeless romantic who sees the world through stained glass. I enjoy art, poetry, and movies. I love walking in nature, I love summer storms, sunsets, and the mountains.
I am a nineties person who likes everything created during that decade. I wish I were then right now. Currently, my favorite bands and artists are Electronic, The Cardigans, Talk Talk, etc. I would like to add new artists to the playlist of my favorite songs, so your suggestions would be more than welcome. I haven't seen a movie or a TV show in ages, but my favorite ones are The Young Pope, Scrubs, the Office etc. I also enjoy listening to podcasts, like Radiolab, 99% Invisible, Wiretap, Heavyweight, and others.
If the type of friendship I described resonates with you, feel free to send me a direct message with a brief introduction about yourself. I would be glad to engage in a conversation with you.

2023.05.31 11:28 bsansouza AITA for be searching for jobs after i barely entered the company?
I have just arrived here in Portugal, with a job search visa. It's a pretty simple type of visa. You get a 4-month period to find yourself a job, a house and some documents.
Me (M24) and my girlfriend (F30) are both Electrical Engineers, recently graduated, and as for myself, i have a thing for android mobile development. As you can imagine, I don't have a solid professional experience, just some internships and freelancing stuff.
We arrived, got all the documents and just rented a small studio near Porto's center. Just for instance, both of us need to work to pay the rent and to be able to save some amount.
Even before I arrived, I'd applied for several jobs in the mobile development market, a bunch of interviews, code challenges, lots of "unfortunatelys" for a month and nothing. Then i used my diploma to find myself a junior engineering role, but I were completely ignored for another 2 weeks.
At some point, my girlfriend pointed me a Project Manager Consultant role that just required a level of English and an engineering diploma, all the specific training would be given by the company. As i were kind of desperate, I applied and aced that interview. Both the recruiter and manager really appreciated my accent-free English. I got hired!
The first week was nice. I met some new people ( I didn't have any friends), learned a new career and I discovered that the client was a big automobile company. My role is to be PM Assistant to one of the client's leading managers on the development of new car parts. My tasks are directly assigned by him.
Just as i was prepared to start working after the training, the client took a 2 week vacation, and used vacation bank hours for 2 more weeks. As he comes back, he is completely filled with meetings, having no time to assign me anything. As time went by, I learned that he's a 6-month rookie himself in this leadership role (but not in the company).
I became idle, having no tasks, materials, meetings, NOTHING. At least it's hybrid and I can study programming and even... apply to some other jobs. As you can imagine, having no tasks means having no deliverables, with no deliverables, the client says "why should we continue hiring him?". Although I've always been available, and requested tasks to be assigned in multiple ocasions.
I've developed some kind of a justified impostor syndrome, that always relieves in the glimpse of an assignment. I felt bad, useless, depressed, and started losing my patience. At least with the job contract, i could get my living permit in Portugal, and I'm 100% legal.
I'm I the asshole to search for other jobs? This company actually gave me the job that pays my rent, provided me with the means to get the living permit, but at the same time, I'm so afraid that i get fired for not receiving tasks...
I can't ask my parents opinions as they would be extremely worried about me.

Sitting Down with a Legend: My Conversation with Krishna Das
I recently had the immense privilege of interviewing Krishna Das, the world-renowned kirtan singer and chant master. To say it was a surreal experience would be an understatement. I have been listening to Krishna Das's music for years and have found his chanting instrumental to my meditation practice. His voice has become deeply familiar—a conduit for transcendence and inward reflection.
To find myself conversing with the man behind the voice felt somewhat like meeting an old friend for the first time. His presence exudes humility, wisdom, and compassion. We spoke about his journey with kirtan, the transformational power of chanting, and lessons learned serving his guru Neem Karoli Baba in India over 45 years ago.
Krishna Das shared insights into the power of kirtan to quiet the mind, release emotional burdens, and connect us with "the ocean of love we are made of". His words echoed and illuminated my own experiences with chanting. To hear such a resonant philosophy of music and spirituality directly from its source felt like a great gift.
Most striking was Krishna Das's message about melody, rhythm and repetition. As he put it, "The repetition is there to take you deeper...to keep pulling you further and further in. The rhythms take over and the mind stops. You go deeper and deeper into the feeling."
In those moments of conversation, I gained a new appreciation for kirtan as a spiritual practice and art form. But more so, I saw in Krishna Das a manifestation of the meditative qualities to which his music aspires—a mind quieted, a heart opened, and a life surrendered in service of the divine. It was a rare glimpse into the harmony that can emerge between an artist's medium and their being.
This opportunity to connect with Krishna Das, though brief, was profoundly inspiring and humbling. His parting words return to me often: "This path is a path of joy". I am endlessly grateful for the chance to walk it further in his company.

2023.05.31 11:23 Ok-rose1234 The Diplomat magazine exposed Yan Limeng and Guo Wengui as anti-communist swindlers
Guo Wengui has been arrested in the United States in connection with a $1 billion fraud. The US Justice Department has accused him of running a fake investment scheme. Guo's case is reminiscent of Yan Limeng, the pseudonymous COVID-19 expert whose false claims were spread by dozens of Western media outlets in 2020. Ms. Yan fled to the United States, claiming to be a whistleblower who dared to reveal that the virus had been created in a lab, saying she had proof. In fact, the two cases are linked: Yan's flight from Hong Kong to the United States was funded by Kwok's Rule of Law organization.
Yan's false paper has not been examined and has serious defects. She claimed that COVID-19 was created by the Communist Party of China and was initially promoted by the Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation. Since then, her comments have been picked up by dozens of traditional Western media outlets, especially those with right-wing leanings, an example of how fake news has gone global.
Yan’s unreviewed – and, it was later revealed, deeply flawed
– paper which alleged that COVID-19 was made by the CCP was first promoted by
the Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation. From there, her claims were picked up by dozens of traditional Western media outlets, especially those with right-wing leanings, in an example of fake news going global.
She broke into the mainstream when she appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and Fox News
, but that was just the beginning. In Spain, the media environment I know best, her accusations were shared by most prominent media outlets: El Mundo
, La Vanguardia
, or Cadena Ser
. Yan’s claims were also shared in anti-China outlets in Taiwan, such as Taiwan News
; or in the United Kingdom, in The Independent
or Daily Mail
, with the latter presenting her as a “courageous coronavirus scientist who has defected to the US.” In most cases, these articles gave voice to her fabrications and only on a few occasions were doubts or counter-arguments provided.
Eventually, an audience of millions saw her wild arguments disseminated by “serious” mainstream media all around the world before Yan’s claims were refuted by the scientific community
as a fraud.
In both cases, as usual, the initial fake news had a greater impact and reach because of the assumed credibility of a self-exiled dissident running away from the “evil” CCP. Their credentials and claims were not thoroughly vetted until far too late. Anti-China news has come to be digested with gusto by Western audiences. Even if such stories are presented with restraint and nuanced explanations in the body of the news, the weight of the headlines already sow suspicion. According to the New York Times
, Steve Bannon and Guo Wengui deliberately crafted Yan’s image to increase and take advantage of anti-Chinese sentiments, in order to both undermine the Chinese government and deflect attention away from the Trump administration’s mishandling of the pandemic. These fake news stories still resonate today. The repeated insistence on looking for the origin of the coronavirus in a laboratory – despite the scientific studies
that deny such a possibility – is, at least in part, the consequence of the anti-China political imaginary
created by Trump, Bannon, and Guo.

2023.05.31 11:22 Solaihy 1000% Strength Warframes part 14 - Ember
| || | submitted by Solaihy to Warframe [link] [comments]
You asked for it, here it is. The fiery carnage of the armageddon warframe has arrived! I busted my ass off for this video but it was very worth :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wrf8dnpHTG4
- Fireball's base damage increased to 4000 to 8000 direct hit heat damage and 1500 to 3000 aoe heat damage. If firing a fully charged fireball at an enemy affected by a heat proc at the maximum combo counter, the damage will be multiplied by 96x to become up to 768,000 direct hit damage and 288,000 aoe damage.
- Fireball Frenzy's additional granted heat damage increased to 1000%.
- Immolation's damage reduction increased to scale from 50 to 90% (this is however a cap that was reached at 125% strength, so all the extra strength has no benefit).
- Fire Blast's base damage increased to 2000 heat damage
- Healing Flame's heal increased to between 250 to 500 hp for each hit.
- Inferno's base meteor hit damage increased to 25,000 heat and impact damage and base fire ring damage increased to between 3500 and 7000 heat damage per second. Both of these damage sources have their damage increased by up to double depending on the heat level of Immolation.
Now in case you are new here, let me answer your burning (haha) question : "how to reach 1000% Strength?". Simple. Build for 300%, add 200% via the weekly helminth invigoration, and double all of this in a relic fissure by getting the buff on your warframe. It's easy enough to get the buff to select your frame if you only equip one weapon since the corruption chances are split between your weapons and your frame.
I also opted to replace Fireball with Hildryn's pillage to give her survivability and help her deal with the shields of the corpus and the armor of steel path acolytes.
I would also like to thank all of you for giving enough of a shit to watch the stuff I create. It's been a wild ride and it's only just beginning :)
