2023.05.29 23:34 ApprehensiveCap6525 Exchange Program Shenanigans (2)

Credit to u/SpacePaladin15
Memory transcription subject: Salvek, Human-Venlil Exchange Program Candidate
Date [standardized human time]: September 3, 2136
I hate banks. Or, more specifically, I hate the United Banking Service. I've never really used another bank, on account of my mother signing me up for a twenty-five year family plan for a cash bonus that never came (it was twenty-five thousand credits, I can't really blame her) but that just makes me hate this one more.
The fat, lazy Gojid on the other side of the bulletproof glass teller window tapped away at his keyboard in order to process my application for a loan. Above him I saw the UBS logo and motto: "Speed, Security, Success." All a load of vyalpic if you ask me. (I will die of old age before this loan ever comes through)
"Sooooo....." Thank the Herd, he was finally talking. I was worried his fat ass had a heart attack and died with how little moving he did. "Your credit score issss....." Oh Protector, just spit it out already! Now I get why predators have such violent impulses. (What if I can't control mine? What if we're worse than them?)
Brahk my intrusive thoughts. How does Jack control his so well? I resolved to ask him when my loan got processed, assuming neither of us starved to death in the meantime. (Speed, security, and success this dick)
"Seven hundred and ninety." Oh, thank Inatala. (Inatala hates predators, can I still say that with one as my best friend?) Venlil credit scores go from zero, being applied to people who took out million-credit loans and blew all the money on gear to unsuccessfully rob the bank they got the loan from, to one thousand, which went to those who panicked over a two credit overdrawn balance and had a heart attack whenever they were a week away from a loan's due date and it still wasn't paid.
Seven hundred and ninety was above average, since my parents had always taught me to manage my finances well, but only slightly above average since Jack's presence and the constant racism that came with it were more trouble than the government stipend was worth. (I would never send him back home, he's better to me than many Venlil)
I thanked the Gojid with sincerity that I meant none of, and asked "Is my loan approved?"
He told me "Yes, it's been approved at..." Oh Herd, not this again. How do his coworkers interact with him? "5% quarterly interest." That's not even bad. (Five percent might be a robbery, but for UBS banks it's decent) "You'll have six months to pay it off in full... or the interest will double every quarter." (Somebody should disband the United Banking Service)
I agreed to these terms, since they were the best I was going to get, and left without another word. Eight thousand Federation credits had just entered my bank account, making me a very rich man. (Not really, but it was the most I'd ever had)
Jack was sitting on a bench outside the UBS building tapping away on his pad. A more skittish Venlil would have assumed that he was plotting something or bathing in the virtual blood of his prey, but I knew better than to assume the game he was playing was predatory.
Never mind, it was absolutely predatory. An army of huge winged beasts descended on what looked like a walled fortress in the middle of a hellish landscape, and lightning rained down from the skies at Jack's command to pick apart what I assumed were strategic defenses. (He might not actively do predator things, but he is excellent at them)
Within thirty ticks of the timer at the top of the screen, the beasts were above the fortress raining destruction on whatever they pleased. A few soldiers ran out of a building near the center of the base, attacking Jack's army, but they were quickly dealt with. Without the defenses that were destroyed by what I assumed was orbital bombardment, the base was helpless against the conquering predator.
A chill ran down my spine as I saw the defenders being slaughtered. A Venlil general or admiral (there were actually surprisingly many when compared to the rest of our military) could accomplish such results but those types of Venlil were very few and often had mild cases of Predator Disease. (That needs a new name. Maybe Arxur disease? No, too scary)
Seeing an average human, whose only military experience was four years serving on a war boat (They still have a boat military? Herd, those predators love their weapons) complete what many Federation officers would struggle to do terrified me for good reason.
We Venlil had treated Humans like they weren't even sapient, just dirt or pests that we had to tolerate. And the rest of the Federation treated them even worse. What if they decided peace wasn't worth it? What if, in our fear of the Arxur, we unleashed a threat worse than them? (Could Jack spare me from a human cattle farm? I'd have to kill myself if he couldn't)
Venlil Prime would be the first world to fall. We'd all die of our own hubris.
"Hell!" Jack turned his pad down so I couldn't look over his shoulder anymore. "I'm sorry you had to see that." Why did he have to be sorry for everything? The way my species, my Federation, treated him and his kind always angered me.
I told him "Don't be sorry. It's not your fault your hobbies are so... you know." I didn't like using the word "predator". At least, not to describe humans. Jack was cool with me using it as long as it wasn't in a derogatory way, (since they are predators) but it just reminded me of how unjustly he and his kind were treated.
Jack clearly didn't listen when I said not to be sorry because he kept apologizing. "Yeah, but it's not your fault you're so damn skittish either. And it is my fault I played Clash... I mean the game here. I should've known better." Herd, why did he never stand up for himself? The exterminators can't be that bad!
I explained to him "You don't have to apologize, Jack. You never meant to scare anyone." and before he could keep apologizing (I know him too well to think he wouldn't) I changed the subject. "We have money at our disposal now, we can buy something from the Mellow Firefruit on our way to the train station."
Jack agreed, but he was worried about "spacists". (Oh Herd, has he lost it?) I asked "What in the Arbor is a spacist?" In case you don't know, the Arbor is where followers of the Great Protector go when they die. It's a huge forest with plentiful and delicious food, and no predators.
When I finally mustered up my courage and told Jack that the god I worship hates his kind, I was half expecting to die horribly by his unusually short claws or extremely dull fangs. (Are they so peaceful because of their lack of natural weapons, or do they lack natural weapons because they're so peaceful? I should ask Jack that)
Instead, he shrugged it off and told me that, apparently, "Jesus still solos." When I explained the Arbor at his request, he had the brilliant idea to convert to worshiping the Protector and then kill himself in order to appear there and scare the afterlife out of everyone else. He quickly and profusely explained that he would never actually do that, but Inatala would never have accepted him anyway so it didn't matter.
Anyway, back to real life. Jack told me "Oh, spacists? They're just space racists except I mushed the two words together. It's a play on words type thing." The words 'space' and 'racists' do not fit together in Venlilese, and frankly, I was astounded that the translator even gave me the concept. (I bought it second-hand from a Mazic who stepped on it one too many times, but it was incredibly cheap)
I told him "If you told anyone but me that the words 'space' and 'racists' fit together then you would be screened for Predator Disease." and he covered his mouth in the gesture that was universally recognized as a prey-safe predator's laugh.
"God, sometimes I forget you guys have a sense of humor."
Just then, I started walking. I was tired, like any Venlil would be after a long walk, a long wait in line and the anticipation of another long walk, but the thought of the sweet, delicious food at the Mellow Firefruit kept me going. (I have to get Jack some, he's been underrating Venlil cuisine ever since he first tried my subpar cooking)
Jack fell in behind me, then he moved up to be at my side as an equal. Us Venlil didn't care where you were in line, but I guess predators have different priorities. (Is thinking 'predator' as bad as saying it? That's a dilemma I need to deal with later) I asked him "How come your claws and... uh... those pointy front teeth are so small?" (I don't like talking about fangs, sue me)
Jack turned to look at me, jerked his head away a little, then he turned and looked at me again. He responded to my question, realized I was a Venlil, and realized I was Salvek, in that order. I was good at reading people. He told me "First of all, they're called nails and canines. And second of all, we've never needed claws so they never evolved." A predator never needing claws was absurd! When would Jack learn that he didn't have to lie to me?
I interrupted my friend's explanation by telling him "Jack, I'm not going to run away or faint just because you tell me that ancient humans hunted. I get it. Just tell me how you lost your claws."
Jack sighed. He didn't sigh a lot, only when he was driven to the end of his very long rope (Turns out that's a human idiom too! Who knew?) by someone else's, usually my, stupidity. "Salvek, we didn't lose them. We evolved to eat fruit from trees, and by the time we were eating meat we had at least developed the art of throwing rocks at things. There was never any need for them, and they never appeared as a result. Satisfied?"
Developing weapons early on did make sense for humans, given how good they are at combat, so I nodded. It wasn't really a Venlil expression, but those in the exchange program had learned everything they could about their human partners. (I'm saying human instead of predator! Progress!) "Yeah, that makes sense."
Jack continued, explaining about human 'canines'. We just called them fangs. "Canines were originally fangs, yeah," He lowered his voice when he mentioned fangs. "but when we made fire around a million years ago, we didn't need them anymore and so they got smaller. I'm no expert, but that's what I know."
That actually made sense. I knew the Arxur didn't eat cooked meat, since I found uncensored raid footage on an internet rabbit hole when I was fourteen, (I peed myself and had nightmares for weeks but no one has to know) but I always assumed humans shared that trait. Maybe I was just like the rest with how I kept comparing humans and Arxur. (Why am I capitalizing one and not the other? No one knows!)
Maybe I was just like the rest. Maybe one day I would lose control and run from Jack, or freeze up, or worse, call the exterminators, and then it would all be over. I could never live with myself if my damned instincts got him to hate me or got him killed. I've only known him for a few weeks, but when we met we just clicked.
It's still weird to me how the concept of platonic soul mates doesn't exist yet.
"That's it, right?" Jack asked while pointing to a red restaurant a few blocks away. That was it. I was about to eat good.
"Yeah, that's it. Come on, let's go!" I ran to the Mellow Firefruit faster than most humans could, on account of my species being designed for sprints, (or we're just better than them) and Jack tagged along in a brisk walk. He was probably trying not to be mistaken for chasing me and shot dead, or worse, set on fire.
I know most predators don't feel pain, but humans do. Why in the Herd didn't exterminators at least have the decency to kill them humanely?
A couple seconds later, Jack was waiting outside the restaurant and looking at his pad while I waited in line (In case nobody noticed yet, I hate lines) for my meal. Jack's meal too, since nobody wanted their entire customer base to leave the second they began serving humans. At least, that was the official reason. The real reason is that most Venlil are still racist.
After an agonizing minute and a half of waiting, since the Mellow Firefruit was a popular restaurant (for good reason, as Jack was about to discover) I finally got to order my food. "I'll have two yaccay salads, and two red fires please." Jack only asked for a salad, but red fires were excellent drinks and if he said no to one I would drink both. I was being smart with this.
"Okay, that will be 43.8 credits." All right, maybe not so smart.
I asked "44 credits?" in shock as my mind struggled to wrap itself around this sudden increase in price. The last time I got a meal here it was only twenty credits.
The cashier, a large green Krakotl who was a tiny bit taller than me, explained "Inflation. Those damn predators brahked up the economy and now we have this." Putting hate on my friend Jack wasn't something I would normally tolerate, but my father had always said it wasn't wise to anger the people who made your food. I just swiped my card across his card reader and stayed silent, like dad would have wanted.
"If you ask me, Sovlin was right."
Was my father really that wise? He probably didn't know what he was talking about.
"How can you say that? No one deserves what he did to Marcel." I shot back, managing to contain the venom in my voice.
The cashier retorted "No one sapient. But those... things that Tarva's dumb ass let roam our planet don't qualify." with barely-contained hatred. (Thank the Herd Jack doesn't have to hear this)
Before I could respond, however, the manager came with my order and reprimanded his subordinate. "Don't get into politics with customers, and certainly don't spit those lies in my establishment!" Maybe the Great Protector was still looking out for me.
The manager handed me my items and apologized profusely. "My cashier here is still new to Venlil Prime. He hasn't gotten used to the... the new arrivals yet. Herd, even I struggle sometimes, and I'm in the exchange program!"
I thanked him, explaining that it wasn't a big deal but the cashier should still be reprimanded, and brought our food to Jack. He wasn't playing that predatory (it was predatory, but predatory didn't necessarily mean bad) game again, but he was scrolling through his account on UHerd.
UHerd was the Venlil's main addition to the galaxy at large, being a huge social media service that Jack had described as "just like Instagram." when he first heard of it. Bleat was another large website just like it, but it was much less known than UHerd. (Fun fact: the U stands for Internet! Maybe not in English, but in Venlilese it does)
Jack never posted much, but he had me and a few mutual friends from the Program followed and he liked hearing what we were doing. I plopped down next to him and handed him his food. "Here, I got you something."
He picked up the salad nonchalantly, but when I handed him his drink, he inspected it curiously. "What in God's name is this doohickey?" He asked.
I told him "Try it, it's a red fire. It's good." and he did try it.
Jack exclaimed "Holy christ!" and the look in his eyes was comparable to what I saw the first time I agreed to being pet. "This is heavenly!" He guzzled the spicy fluid with hunger that would have terrified me if I hadn't seen him devour meals a dozen times before, (He'll eat me next I have to run I have to run run run run for it [oh, shut up already]) stopping only to praise its taste. "This is like the nectar of the gods!" Then "Shit, this is what I was missing out on? We gotta desegregate the restaurants immediately!"
That got him thinking, and I could almost see the money-making gears turning in his head. "You know, Salvek, what if we opened up a restaurant? You could be the official owner and waiter, I could cook some delectable earth recipes, and as long as no one saw me, we could make bank!"
I didn't like that idea. It sounded a lot like a recipe for disaster. I told him "Nah, it would be too hard for just the two of us. And besides, we already have the clothing business." Selling shirts online is a lot easier and cheaper than owning a restaurant.
Since Jack asked me a question, I figured I could ask one too. "Hey Jack, do you mind if I ask you a question?"
Jack didn't care, and he told me as much, so I continued. "How do you keep yourself in check all the time? How can humans control themselves so well?"
He paused for a bit, causing me to involuntarily panic, (he's looking for weak points, or exterminators, he's going to snap my neck for this) but I quelled these thoughts and there was no visible change in my expression. Finally, the colossal man spoke. "How do you do it?"
"W-what?" I stammered, and he picked up a leaf that was blowing in the wind before cherishing his last sip of the red fire.
He held the leaf up to my mouth. "How can you resist the temptation to just chow down on every plant you see? It must be exhausting." I took a brief nibble of the plant, despite it being completely unappetizing in nature, and he told me "See? Your herbivore instincts made you eat it! How can you keep them in check all the time?"
I wasn't a fool, not by any means. I knew he was mocking me. But the thought of a predator not having any predatory instincts was an entirely unheard of concept, bordering on heresy for some. It would probably have gotten me screened for Predator Disease if I spoke of it aloud, but I still spoke of it aloud. (There were no exterminators, I was fine) "So you're trying to say that you don't have predatory instincts? But what about the drive to hunt?"
Jack sighed again, muttering "So smart, but so damn stupid." in a low tone before he explained to me exactly what I wanted to know. "We have the need to eat meat in the same way you need to eat plants, because if we don't do it we die." That made sense. "But just like you don't have a primal urge to devour all the greenery in sight, we don't have any instincts of our own. Make sense?"
It did, but I was still struggling to wrap my head around it, so I just nodded and finished off my salad. Jack had apparently forgot about his salad, as he hadn't touched it. He opened the plastic carton, looked at its contents weirdly, and took a bite.
"This is mid." He told me, point blank. "Like, I don't mean to offend anyone, but it is mid. I'm not even hungry."
I was mildly offended, but there wasn't much I could change about his honest opinion, so I just told him "I thought it was good." and left it at that.
Jack slid his salad over to me (I love these things like my only son) and offered "You can have it. I don't want it." I would have accepted, but I wasn't hungry. Jack didn't really mind, so he threw his salad out and told me "Then we should get going. We have only [1/8 of a claw], I mean... 1/8 of a claw before our train leaves."
I agreed, getting up and walking to the train station, and Jack followed. I was well rested by then, so the brief walk was easy. Jack... Jack was Jack. He never got tired.
We actually made a pretty good pace to the train station, and within 1/16 of a claw we were on our way back to my home district and my third-floor apartment. I had money to my name, I had a huge predator (Human! Damn, those words get mixed up too much) friend, and he and I were about to make a truckload of credits. Life was good.

2023.05.29 23:32 tgbnju How to add image if user is logged in

Hi, I'm trying to add a profile image to base.html if the user is logged in, but I can't work it out. I can add the Username, or email, but image_file I can't work out. For username, I can't just do this in the template:
{% if current_user.is_authenticated %} {{ current_user.username }} {% endif %} 
But I can't get this to work:
{% if current_user.is_authenticated %} {{ current_user.image_file }} {% endif %} 
I tried this too:
{% if current_user.is_authenticated %}  {% endif %} 
But I only get the alt text and no image.
Here is my model:
class User(db.Model, UserMixin): id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key=True) username = db.Column(db.String(20), unique=True, nullable=False) email = db.Column(db.String(120), unique=True, nullable=False) image_file = db.Column(db.String(20), nullable=False, default="default.png") password = db.Column(db.String(60), nullable=False) posts = db.relationship("Post", backref="author", lazy=True) def __repr__(self): return f"User('{self.username}', '{self.email}', '{self.image_file}')" 
What do I need to do to get the image working on the base template, it works on the update page I have written where the user can change it, but it seems a little pointless allowing the user to have an profile image if it can't be shown on other pages.

2023.05.29 23:32 Natural-Cranberry172 Advice

48(almost 49) yr old FM SW 181 CW 172 GW 115-120 5’2” Goal of weight loss and better overall health
I have been doing 18:6 16:8 with one 40+ hr fast (starting at the end of day 1 and not eating until usually mid day day 3) for 2 weeks now. First week lost 6 lbs this week almost 4. Cutting back on sugar and gluten but not any real restrictions just no zero nutrition foods. I did not track my calories the first week but find I was really restrictive this week (yesterday was my highest at 975 calories). My friend who lost a lot of weight by significant lifestyle changes and one 24 hr fast a week tells me I actually need to eat more. That my body will go into starvation mode too soon and that I won’t be able to sustain what I am doing long term. I will admit the last two days I have been hungrier throughout the day. Even before starting IF I was typically only eating OMAD. I obviously am just getting started but I know eventually my weight loss will plateau.
Do you find that you have better results with not being too restrictive. For those that have plateaued, did you have to cut back on calories? My calories calculator based on my age, gender, post menopause, and non active occupation says 1100-1200 calories but I don’t think I eat that on a day to day basis. Also, what do you do when the craving for ice cream overtakes you!!🤪

2023.05.29 23:30 PleasantSpark Reposting my Infant here to make a statement.

Reposting my Infant here to make a statement.
The harassment and treatment I received was DIGUSTING. This falls under rule 3. Rule 3 tells people to be courteous and respectful and all I got was people whinging and complaining and even harassing me over my Infants style. The point is, I made my Infant as cute as I wanted and I wanted to share my Infant with everyone else because, this is one of the few sims I got and I was proud of, instead I got UNWARRENTED critcism and harassment for the baby.
Come to think of it, these are pixels, and crying about them and saying "I don't like them." while also commenting down how much you don't like them to a person who WANTS to have kids someday and uses the game to make them as realistically as possible degrades me, whats worse is that the sim I shared was a MIXED child who additionally looked how I did when I was a child and made me feel VERY upset. Not only did you insult the sim I worked so hard on. You indirectly insulted my skintone, my simsona's child and by extension, me.
The Sims was supposed to be a inclusive game but here we have a bunch of hypocritical people willing to gang up on mentally ill people to insult pixels they based on themselves and loves for children. I don't expect an apology, because no amount of apology can fix the damage and disrespect I faced. I already had to deal with racism in my life and now to be faced with harassment on the way I make my babies, despicable. From now on, if you don't like something.
Don't post a comment.
Stop disrespecting people's boundaries because you don't like something you see, if I say stop, you stop. I am not a regular redditor that you can pick on, I have feelings too. Take your insensitive remarks about "Yassified" infants elsewhere, literally speaking I made this infant as realistic as I can. As I am writing this I had a panic attack from the harassment received and I will be reporting anyone else who dares try and do the things said before.

2023.05.29 23:26 patrickthatsapickle_ Being offered $30k less than “targeted salary”. Is it because I’m internal?

Hey everyone,
I’m (30M) dealing with a weird situation.
I work for a fairly large company here in the US. I’m a Senior Product Owner for enterprise level customer-facing technology. I have an under-grad degree, 3 years of experience in this field, and am currently making $73k/year.
I’ve been temporarily backfilling a role as a Product Manager for 4 months, because someone left the company abruptly (I’m also still doing my PO job). I was the most familiar with the product and its initiatives in flight, so I was forced into this role but I’m not mad about it; it’s been fun!
My boss met with me last Thursday to offer the PM position to me full-time. I’m so grateful for the opportunity considering what our economy is like, but I’m a little concerned/annoyed.
He’s offering me $86k/year base salary to become the official PM ($13k increase). He said that I can have a few days to think it over, but they have to post the job publicly for HR purposes.
So anyways, I was on LinkedIn this morning and saw the job posting popped up as a recommendation. I checked it out and noticed that the “base salary range” is listed as $97,000 - $133,000/year and the “target base salary” for the role is $116,000/year.
The $86k he offered me doesn’t even fall in the listed range on this posting. Am I being offered less than this range because I’m internal? I know $43k increase is a big jump (to get me to the “target salary”), but I just don’t see how it’s fair to hire someone externally and pay them $30k more than someone who’s been doing the job (quite well I might add). Should I address this with my boss and negotiate to get closer to the $116k? I also need to figure out what’s happening to my PO responsibilities. I’d appreciate anyone’s constructive advice/input.

2023.05.29 23:26 Logical_Cellist_3472 George W Bush is the worst president America has ever had. Hear me out

I decided to make this post since I have seen that people all over the media now see GW Bush as some sort of hero. He's not. He's a war criminal and had an awful presidency. Even worse than Trump's.
Before I go in to why, I will state, I acknowledge the wrongdoings of past presidents and how they could be seen as worse. Trump with attempting a coup, A. Johnson undoing reconstruction, Pierce and "bleeding kansas". These are all really bad and am not excusing those. Those are still some of the worst presidents. But here are my reasons for George W. Bush being the worst president we ever had.
There is a lot more but it would honestly take a long time to write it all. Of course, he may have had SOME achievements. Such as medicare part D and PEPFAR which were both fairly successful. But even then, every president has done SOME good. Even the worst of the worst. These are my reasonings for George W Bush being the worst president in American history. You could maybe make the case he's the 4th worst because of Johnson, Pierce and Buchanan. But personally, I see him as the #1 worst.

This post is satire by the way.
Citadel has too much to gain, they don't have to cover if theres no market right? Implode the dollar and markets gone. Haven't Citadel been short treasury bonds basically short selling the dollar. I think Kenny paid off a few politicians at their last builder berg meeting. Just saying they dont have to cover if theres no market to cover in. Make the dollar go worthless and naturally the price of most stocks will fall relative to the dollar. AMC/ GME/ SPY Stocks are traded world wide and based in American dollars. MAKE the dollar become worthless and you got yourself a get out of squeeze card.
Make everything go worthless, restart new new economy on the digital dollar. All I can say is hodl if this happens.
What if they came up with the digital dollar to get around the squeeze right, So they had it in place for a while then were going to release in like 2030 but then amc and gme happened and they were like lets just default in 2-3 years and reset everything.

2023.05.29 23:24 newyork0120 The Media Ignores A Man Killed For ‘Being White’ In Favor Of Another Fake Racism Scandal (Part 1)

A few weeks ago, a 66-year-old handyman named Lawrence Herr was installing a mailbox outside of his home in Kenner, Louisiana, toiling away in the heat, working past retirement age to provide for his sick 90-year-old mother, and that’s when two men in their 20s—Taj Matthews and Maurice Holmes were their names—drove by. And unlike Lawrence Herr, Taj and Maurice were NOT productive members of society, they were not the kinds of people you’d want living in your neighborhood or anywhere near your kids. Maurice Holmes had just got out of prison on his six year sentence for domestic violence. On that day, Maurice Holmes and Taj Matthews were supposed to be at their jobs at IHOP, but they pretended to be sick so that they could take the day off, and a few hours after getting off of work, they passed Lawrence Herr for the first time as he was working on the mailbox. Surveillance footage shows that the two men drove by and then made a u-turn and passed by Lawrence Herr again, and then made another u-turn, and they drove past a second time, and then another u-turn. On the third pass, Maurice Holmes handed a 9mm pistol to Taj Matthews, who then proceeded to shoot Herr in the back. Lawrence Herr bled out next to the mailbox as the two men drove away.
Now, why would these two young men decide to skip work so that they could stalk and murder a handyman in the middle of the day? Didn’t take long for the police to answer that question. According to authorities, “one of the two suspects has admitted to his role in the crime, explaining they just wanted to go out and ‘kill a white guy.’” Maurice Holmes and Taj Matthews were black and Lawrence Herr was white, so they executed him. Now, these men, they didn’t know Lawrence Herr, they didn’t get into some kind of altercation with him that day, he didn’t shout the n-word at them while they drove past (not that that would justify it), they just decided to take a day off work to go hunting for white people, and so they did. Here’s an official with the Kenner Police Department laying out the details:
”There’s some of the confession of Taj Matthews, who admitted to taking part in the homicide that they did, wanted to commit a murder that day, and specifically they’ve ruled out Hispanics and they said it was gonna be a white person. Within then a couple blocks of their residence, of their starting point, they did find Mr. Herr out working on a mailbox, doing what he does, and they shot him in the back.”
Now, no mainstream media outlet in the country has covered this story, from what I’ve seen—CNN, Fox News, The New York Times, The New York Post—you can search any of their websites for Lawrence Herr—and you can check me on this—and you’ll get no results. Instead of talking about Lawrence Herr, who was executed for his race in the middle of the day, they spent the past week going wall to wall with an obviously fake story about a pregnant white physician’s assistant in New York City who supposedly decided to, out of nowhere one day, terrorize some black people. You’ll probably know the details by now about this story: According to the media, Sarah Comrie got off her 12 hour shift at Bellevue and, for some utterly perplexing reason, decided to steal a Citi Bike from a group of black teens. She would be, I think perhaps, the first middle aged white woman to attempt to mug a bunch of black males. This doesn’t happen - we’ve never seen anything like it before, it would be totally unprecedented in world history, and yet, no media outlets did any research or investigation into this version of events. We were supposed to accept it at face value, and many people did. And they did so based entirely on this out of context video.
Here’s how the New York Post covered that clip, this was the headline: “NYC hospital ‘Karen’ on leave after being accused of trying to take black man’s bike in viral video”. The article goes to mock Sarah Comrie, saying that she “appears to start crying theatrically” in the video. Now, this is the New York Post we’re talking about, which broke the Hunter Biden laptop story. They’re capable of doing real investigative journalism on occasion—and sometimes they do—but what they did here is a use a racial slur in a headline to spread an obvious lie about a pregnant hospital worker.
And yes, “Karen” is a racial slur. I made this point a year ago on Reddit, and of course, a large gaggle of idiots, like usual, pretended that they had no idea what I was talking about, “how could Karen be a racial slur, that’s rediculous,” but everyone knows the truth. Even an article in the BBC from 2020 acknowledges that the Karen meme references “a specific type of middle class white women”, and it became popular “as a way for people of colour, particularly black Americans, to satirise” this type of white person. In other words, it’s a derogatory label that one race of people uses to describe members of another race, otherwise known as a racial slur, that’s what a racial slur is. So I wonder, what other racial slurs does the New York Post allow in their style guide? Do they have any racial slurs about the black teenagers who lied about this woman stealing their Citi Bike? Why not? And what if the Daily Wire started running headlines with the name “Shaniqua” as a pejorative for annoying black women? Would all the people defending the Karen slur remain so open minded?

2023.05.29 23:24 Temporary-Bet-6246 How got this Community so toxic?

Hey, I'm a huge fan of the TW games and started way back with Rome 1. Since then, the TW community grew bigger and older, but it seems it didn't mature. There are lots of posts and comments from influencers and customers that are reading like CA is the absolute worst company ever and the games are trash. Constructive criticism is important and should be aired. But insulting the folks at CA makes No sense at all. I'd be Happy - or at least less ashame for beeing Part of the Fan base - If those hate Statements would not receive that many upvotes, even if the underlying core message fits your opinion. Tone matters. Be nice to each other. Sorry for my bad english and thanks for your attention.

2023.05.29 23:22 toejamborees Are my chronic issues potentially related and caused by an autoimmune disorder?

33 female. Normal BMI.
Family history: dad's side has cancer galore. They all died by their 50s or 60s. Dad's was renal cell carcinoma. Mom has two siblings with lupus.
Infancy: GERD and still have trouble with reflux now.
Age 9 I started getting migraines and low blood pressure issues like vision going black when standing or fainting when losing a lot of blood or seeing a lot of blood.
Age 10 I developed a severe allergy to dairy. Over time I became less sensitive but still am bothered by whey.
Age 11, unconfirmed but suspected mono virus.
At some point as a teen my nose started dripping a lot and producing excess mucus.
At 21 I developed moderate to severe persistent asthma and have had to take inhaled corticosteroids ever since. It started after I had a cold, was smoking regularly, and living in a room with black mold. I quit smoking then.
Had allergy workup done and all they found is that I'm allergic to milk protein.
Around this time my migraines worsened to where they would cause nausea and vomiting.
At 22 I had my first debilitating muscle spasms in my mid-upper back. Since then it flairs up for no apparent reason once or twice a year and takes a few days to subside.
At 24 I had my first sinus/septum surgery and had a rough time emotionally with the excessive Prednisone I was prescribed. This is the first time I had a major depressive episode.
26, second major depressive episode. SSRI made the depression worse.
26, had numbness on my left leg and foot for about 6 months likely related to the peroneal nerve based on the location of numbness. This was during my first office job involving lots of sitting with crossed legs.
27, second nose surgery, this time a full rhinoplasty (non cosmetic). More successful than the first at correcting my airways, but I still produce excessive mucus.
During this period depressive episodes became more common and less distinguishable as separate events. Feelings of lethargy and apathy are persistent.
30, extreme depressive episode coupled with insomnia and anorexia after death of father during covid isolation. This resulted in a damaged pereneal nerve and drop foot on the left side. I have since recovered from insomnia, anorexia, and drop foot.
30, spontaneous CSF leak that resolved on its own. Had brain imaging that didn't provide any reason for CFS leak and the only abnormality identified was migraine scar tissue.
32, uncomplicated pregnancy and birth 8 months ago. Had a spinal headache from the epidural. 0/10 do not recommend.
In the first couple months after birth I had a few episodes of breaking out in hives and struggling to breathe for no apparent reason. Doctors give me Benadryl and say 🤷‍♀️
Also post pregnancy my Achilles tendons flare up often making it difficult to walk.
Prescription medicines I take:
Advair diskus 250/50 daily
Wellbutrin XL 300mg daily
Fioricet, Sumatriptan, and Cyclobenzaprine as needed
Non prescription is mainly just prenatal vitamins and aspirin.
To me it seems likely that I have an autoimmune issue, but finding a physician willing to spend the time and energy on all these issues with me as a whole has eluded me to this point. I almost always end up feeling rushed, dismissed, and discouraged after appointments. Having some opinions on potential correlation for these issues or advice on approaching the doctor with it is what I'm hoping for here. Or maybe you will tell me I'm an anxious malingerer overthinking normal health problems--I am open to all advice. I have an upcoming appointment with a new primary care since I moved states. Looking to get the most I can out of that appointment. Thank you for reading.

2023.05.29 23:22 k_babz follow up re: thrift question

i just wanted to clarify bc it seemed like a lot of people read my first post as me wanting to not pay/not buy after winning shopgoodwill auctions. i just wanted to clarify that i would never do that, shopgoodwill is the only way i can afford to participate in this hobby and i'm grateful for it and would never abuse it like that. thats why i was wondering, bc it seems like some people might abuse it based on how many dolls end up getting relisted. i just wanted to clarify bc it seemed like a lot of people read it wrong and thought i was looking for ways to not pay.

2023.05.29 23:20 RGJacket Looking for help creating a web page that serves up kiosk-type dashboards with a grid

Cross-posted to WebDevBuddies
I've not created a website from scratch since Dreamweaver days many years ago. I certainly am familiar with the basics. I've played with Word Press more recently, but that's not what I need at the moment.
Here's what I'm looking to do:
I want to create a web application that has a grid where each segment runs an API query and displays data using an indicator (type changes based on the data type - some are numeric indicators, others are a graph). I have the API calls, JSON formats, etc. What I don't have, yet, is an easy way to put all of this together and manage the web application. The application will run essentially as a kiosk mode on PC, mobile (iOS/Android), and Android tablets. The grid (say it is a 3x2 layout) needs to have the individual data queries happen at different intervals. One happens every 2 minutes. The other once every 15 minutes, etc.
I'm starting from a fresh host - no existing web pages, styles, etc. So, effectively starting from zero. Except that I have the API calls working in python and running using a cron job at the moment.
Started looking at modern tools and it is a bit overwhelming. BSS looks promising, as it has that Dreamweaver, but made after 2010, feel to it. But then I go down the Angular path. But I need an IDE, etc. and what I'm doing is somewhat static (just the indicators change as the data changes).
So hive mind - what should I check out?

2023.05.29 23:12 MissDiem They did NOT stick the landing

Love the show, still do, always will. But the ending was a letdown for this masterpiece.
I've lived in the real world version of Succession, and one of my favorite things is how uncannily accurate the depiction of the business and culture has been. The situations and details, while exaggerated for comedy and drama, are ones that can and do happen.
The ending chapter tosses that away, along with character consistency. Hear me out.
Character-wise, Kendall wouldn't be stammeringly unprepared for his pitch. Shiv has always been composed in the business environment, even under pressure, even when she has no right to be. Last parts of this season, she abruptly becomes a nervous wreck, which isn't even her. Roman has always been an overconfident and ebullient douche, and now suddenly zaps into a fragile introvert?
This ending required the main protagonists to instantly and magically convert into characters they've never been. And that's key. Characters can grow, or can change more quickly from an unexpected event, but you don't make your entire story dependent on all of them undergoing the most improbable and instantaneous re-inventions.
A large merger doesn't really turn based on the name of an inconsequential CEO. And for Gojo, there's zero reasons to select Tom, and a hundred reasons not to. It's a regulatory and legal and governance and optics improbability of huge scale, betraying the usual verisimilitude of the Succession universe. If a puppet is sought, there's a million faceless ones available.
We can see why that was done, to set up one more pair of scenes in which Shiv and Tom can verbally slaughter each other. But it was possible to have that without the nonsensical ending. Mattson could play them each for his sadistic fun, without actually making the impossibly unrealistic Tom choice. Fans get those scenes, but the plot remains solvent.
As an aside, another example of how the finale departed from the overall solidity of this series was how nobody was even that aware or even concerned of what might be happening in the Presidential election. Really? Seriously? Oh, is something happening in Wisconsin that would change the president from one to the other? I hadn't heard...
Shiv's last second board room flip makes zero sense in or out of the Succession world. It rests on her suddenly remembering something she's known for a long time and has long since made her peace with. Hours earlier, the "Drink Fit For A King" more than confirms that. It's even sealed by their shared accord that to execute Mattson requires a killer.
Then the plot next relies on Kendall being replaced by a different character wearing his skin, who suddenly starts lying transparently and gets violent. It's not Kendall. Kendall didn't physically attack and kill a waiter. His weakness and passivity led to that incident. No intent, and no violence, just indifference. It's much different. For those who will say he pushed Rome at the birthday, that meek baby push just cements that physical violence is foreign to Kendall.
And Kendall's way of lying has always been slick and calculating. Always. Suddenly, replacement Kendall is lying like a toddler. True Kendall would have rapidly deduced whatever Shiv wanted to hear, and would have at least tried to lie in ways that would seem to placate her interests. His pitch would never have been one of begging.
So, yeah, to me, this last chapter flopped, relative to the immense strength of the series.
I don't critique unless I know there were better endings possible. I'm sure lots here have ideas on that. Here's just one that I think I would like to have seen instead...
Greg intercepts what he thinks is Mattson's betrayal, tips off Shiv, who flips the merger. We get enjoyable scenes of the Roy siblings completing the foreshadowed "bleed the Swede" mission, including the glee of watching consequences hit the loathsome Mattson. In the show (or perhaps even post-show?) viewers discover that what Greg thinks he discovered is in error. His translation app has botched it and given opposite meaning to the translation. The ending and permanent consequences for everyone have all been driven by Greg's limited competence and self-serving paranoia, and maybe, by the fact that phone apps are often bullshit. That's the kind of ending I would have loved.
Look, there was fun to be had in this finale. Typical Kendall disregarding someone as "new Jess", Caroline being Caroline, Connor being perfectly consistent Connor, emotion in the "found footage" and the Kendall drink coronations. But the unrealistic plot and total character bankruptcies at the last minute did not land.

2023.05.29 23:12 fenrir0wulf And so came the MFA requirements... (Desktop side MFA apps?)

So I know there is another post with a very similar question (Here) and my own question also applies to O365, it mainly applies to our incoming update to the company's ERP. This update will see our entire ERP system moved to a cloud based solution with a web portal with new account requirements, of which is MFA. And recently, we've also had a small issue where Micro$oft automatically enabled new policies in Azure for O365 including MFA. We've managed to postpone this change for now (not that the Azure backend likes it) because, to say it would've been a catastrophe is almost an understatement.
This might need an explanation: Right now, our current version of the ERP works with an SSO. This is fine because everything is on-prem. O365 does not work with SSO. All user passwords for O365 are managed by IT and only IT has access to those passwords which are put in a vault. (Read: IT = me and administrator) Also, we basically don't really use O365 much, we mostly only use the desktop apps (Word, Excel, Outlook), in fact, we just moved our users' docs from our own servers to Onedrive.
Now, the new version of the ERP is decoupled from our AD and needs a separate login and requires MFA. And since I know M$ can't be trusted to leave something that works alone, and that the next version of Outlook is quite literally a glorified web app that is just a wrapper for OWA, which caused some trouble trying to test it (because we also block OWA by default), I'm also including it in the question.
The question: is there any good windows desktop app for 2FA/MFA? I am specifically asking for desktop apps. No mobile apps. Why? Because we're trying to still keep those Office passwords as out of the user's hands as possible. It's simple really: The best password is the one you don't even know. You can't fish a user's password if the user doesn't know it.
I have been looking into it for a bit but here are some of my findings:
Authy: Immediately asks for a phone number, which immediately rules it out. We don't give out phones to everyone in the company, and we're not going to ask our users to use their personal phones, period.
Oracle Mobile Authenticator: It... exists? It has no reviews on the MS Store itself, looks outdated, the few reviews I have found are negative, and I'm not sure I'd trust Oracle with anything.
WinAuth: Alright, let's not beat around the bush. WinAuth is dead. The repo is archived, it hasn't been updated since 2018. And yet, it's pretty much the only app that meets our requirements. Is it still useable? Yes. Should it still be used? Well, that's the debate.
Lastpass: Nope.
And then there are a whole lot of other random apps on the MS app store. But are any of them even close to trustworthy? Honestly, the fact that WinAuth, a dead app remains the best option is honestly completely insane to me. And no, M$ did not even put their own authenticator on the MS Store. The link from MSPoweruser back when there was a beta available is dead.
Is there ANY desktop app that is suitable?

2023.05.29 23:09 Spiritual_Past1294 CBT vs ACT - Are they mutually exclusive ?

CBT helped me get out from social anxiety, and helped me change many beliefs i had about myself and social capabilities because of social anxiety. I think the cognitive restructuring work was helpful before and after doing exposures (challenging negative automatic thoughts, finding alternatives, identifying cognitive distortions, etc). During the exposures i would just go the mindfull route, focus on people, things, etc, that were around or in front of me.
After overcoming SA, i noticed that i still struggled with obsessive thinking, related to other areas in my life, not necessarly social anxiety related. Typically i would obsess over alcohol and how i might have damaged my brain because of it. I mistakenly used cognitive restructuring to combat it: finding cognitive distortions, challenging my obsessive thoughts, etc. It was endless, and made me even more obsessed and anxious, because there was always that "what if", because science can't give me a definitive and sure answer to my obsessions. After reading the book Needing to know for sure, i had this "ahah" moment where i understood how cognitive restructuring was just making my obsessive/compulsive episodes worse.
My last therapy sessions were with this doctor that used a mix of ACT and CBT. I terminated because of some red flags but this isn't the subject of my post. Back to the ACT and CBT mix, to me it felt paradoxical. ACT tells me to accept my thoughts and emotions, to do a best guess about the situation that i'm stressing over, and move on while engaging in actions that are in line with my values. CBT tells me to keep challenging my thoughts until i feel better, this only worsens my obsession...
Maybe there's something i'm not understanding. By the way i don't even get how Needing to know for sure books claims itself "CBT based". It doesn't have any cognitive restructuring techniques and actually teaches you to avoid keep talking to yourself and advoid trying to challenge your thoughts and find alternative thoughts.
Now i'm even questioning if overcoming my SA was largely due to just doing exposures rather than the cognitive restructuring work. I don't see any benefit anymore in cognitive restructuring, even for challenging beliefs. My last therapist did a schema therapy diagnostic and found a "i'm not good enough" schema, then he started doing cognitive restructuring work to help me stop believing that "i'm not good enough". From a ACT perspective and what i learned with my OCD, even if this "i'm not good enough" belief doesn't make me obsessed: who the f really cares what i "feel about myself" ? Why would i spend my time deconstructing, challenging, "talking back to that voice", who cares about that really? As far as i'm living in a way that is in line with my values, ie, as far as i'm committed.
What are you guys take on this?

2023.05.29 23:07 footfetishnightmares Do I need my toenails removed? I model full time--very anxious, please help!

Pics linked below! 33F, 5'5", 108lbs, white; CC: painful, swollen, red, oozing big toes bilaterally (please see timeline below). No major medical issues, no meds, do not drink, smoke, or use recreational drugs. USA. Podiatrist recommending removal. Second opinion?
Background: Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my post. I am extremely anxious about the possibility of having both my big toenails removed. Some background info: I danced for two decades and played many sports, which caused problems with ingrowns on my big toenails all of my life. As an adult I am very active and love to wear high heels so they have continued to be a problem. In the last year I found a nail tech who I trust (cleanliness, gentleness, etc.) with my feet and only have pedicures done by her. Typically I leave with my big toes a little bit red, but more comfortable with continued improvement in the days following. In general I only occasionally have issues with the left big toe, but almost always have at least minor issues with the right. After my last pedicure I attended a music festival and was on my feet walking and dancing much more than usual. I did wear shoes I have worn before and not had any issues with. Unfortunately, my toes really took a beating and swelled up more than they ever have before, to the point where I made my first ever podiatry appt (5/26/23; please see details in timeline below). I was also already on antibiotics for a dental procedure, which made the level of inflammation especially concerning. The podiatrist recommended removal of the left toenail, citing that it was loose at the base and unlikely to improve on its own. He also diagnosed a granuloma on the right, and said a portion should be removed permanently.
To say I am freaking out is an understatement. Of course I want to do what is best for my health. I have always been self conscious of my toes, so the anxiety and distress this is causing me mentally is significant. More importantly, I model full time professionally, so having pretty feet is a requirement of the job and this will impact my ability to provide for myself. In addition, I will be traveling all of June (lots of walking, beach & pool time).
My Questions:
Timeline (detailed pics by date below; comparison summary pics here: https://imgur.com/jXEunkp)
A few notes: toenail polish is gel, and removal will cause further trauma to the nails, hence why I have left it (vs. removing it to get a better view of the natural nails).
