2023.05.29 16:48 Puzzleheaded_Gate_17 Need help creating a flow for weekly forecasts

Every week, our customer sends me a forecast via Outlook that contains an enclosed Excel file with volumes and information about expected pick-up dates of goods. While I have created a flow to save each forecast in a folder in SharePoint, I would like to optimize this process by creating a flow that consolidates all forecasts into one Excel file. This would involve creating a new worksheet each time a new forecast is received. By doing so, I would be able to better track the volume of each forecast.
As a new user of Power Automate, any guidance on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help.

2023.05.29 15:57 dyquickr Is there an outpatient government position that doesn't involve the VA/other various questions/rant

Hey all, I'm a student (I know). I went into it genuinely enjoying the practice and the pace of retail as a guide for it and I've grown to love it in a weird masochistic way. The rant flag might seem odd for the title, but trust me it's coming. I had to get all this off my chest, apologies if it's not really as coherent as it can be. This does pertain to jobs and not school, but the majority of this word wall is job-related.
I've been at WAGs for the last few years as a tech and an intern. I love my WAGs, it's one of the small rite-aid conversions without a drive through and low script volume. I've been in super high volume stores as well, in different parts of the country. I have had other jobs as well, this is not my only experience, I know what it's like outside of the awful hour-cutting and metric-driven environments. I just like retail I guess. I don't mind putting in work to earn my money and it keeps me busy enough to not get bored.
I also really don't want to do a residency for various reasons. It seems like a rat race to MAYBE get an inpatient job with the right connections and experience and publications and everything. It's not like I'm not qualified to get one either, my GPA is near-perfect, I have a few publications (mainly inorganic chemistry related from prior, but I know the process), and I really have a good memory for guidelines and practices. I've taken every elective possible for ID, so if a PGY2 is ever on the table, it would be in ID. I like the problem-solving nature of it. The academia just doesn't bring me joy. I already got into a great program at a great school, there's just too much creep to justify it to spend the next two years of my life working at minimum wage to potentially get a position at an institution for less money than retail would pay, but I get to sit in a silent room all day with 4 other people. I also hate journal clubs with all of my being. I don't want to doxx myself, but my school's program heavily leans into clinical roles and is pretty competitive already. I enjoy looking deep into patient histories and avoiding/discontinuing polytherapy as I can while also finding the little mini details for optimization.
I always figured by the time that I graduate, I'd have about 7-8 years of experience at said company and I'd come into a pharmacist position with probably that sign-on bonus, a decent salary, and good seniority/vacation compared to other new grads. Worst case scenario, I graduate, I stick with it for two years, keep that bonus, and then move on to greener, maybe easier pastures to start a family and have other things once loans are paid off within a few years of getting out. I'll be aggressively paying this loan with as few and as cheap outside expenditures as I can at this time. The concept of floating and the DIY scheduling does not bother me.
Regardless, I've had a few rotations over at the VA, and I've absolutely hated it every time. It looks like incredibly boring, tedious, WFH, uninspiring guideline-humping work with other people who are more preoccupied with their journal club, snacking on whole foods all day, copy/pasting confusing template at light speed, and salivating at the chance to tell me I'm wrong or doing bad at something than actually read into patient charts and find genuine (sometimes apparent) issues. As a student, this process generally involves filling out worksheets and odd prompts while looking over a preceptor's shoulder and being afraid to ask questions on why the VA cuts typical guidelines or why certain strange guidelines exist there. I had a preceptor yell at me in a room full of people for sending a text involving scheduling on a Monday evening (like 7pm?), outside of undefined work hours. I had another preceptor who insisted on working from home every day and would complain to me on how I made them hire a dog walker for the 5 hours I needed to get in that day. It wasn't successful often, but it's always the student's fault for lack of scheduling I guess.
The VA has different, less stringent guidelines for everything it seems, it's a little hard to keep up with. It's not a welcoming environment, and it's academically and personally defeating, even if I know the content. I know my experience is different than the usual, and maybe I just got a bad VA to be in, but it left a bad taste in my mouth for the aforementioned reasons.
I had an IPPE rotation at a Kroger and a small hospital, both were excellent. They both loved me and I liked the environments. Kroger was my favorite of the two. I am convinced it is not me that is is the issue overall.
However, the potential for government benefits (pension, loan forgiveness, other niceties) gives me a little bit of FOMO. I've considered military pharmacy, but I don't think it would be the best match as in my free time I want to just live a peaceful and normal, and fulfilling life.
This led me to the title question: are there government outpatient jobs that are lesser-known and pushed other than inpatient or ambulatory care at the VA? I enjoy patient interaction, cold calls aren't my favorite activity to do, and research may interest me but I feel I'm too far along to make the decision into it to start building connections to jump in right after graduation. I would like to be in a suburban/rural leaning location so I can be the best help to my patients to help them get what they need. I want to help people directly and I want to get fairly compensated for what I will do, just wondering if there's a couple lesser-known unicorn government jobs to maybe dive into a little bit. I don't need to make the most money or be pampered, or to be the greatest story ever told: I just want a happy life with a fulfilling way of helping those who need it.
I love you all, I love this subreddit, and I appreciate the wealth of knowledge y'all can bring to a confused and frustrated student. Thank you.

2023.05.29 14:33 kayakero Metabolism-Boosting Foods for Weight Loss

Boosting metabolism and incorporating foods that support weight loss are essential factors for women looking to shed some pounds. While no single food can magically melt away fat, certain foods can increase metabolism, provide essential nutrients, and promote satiety, thus aiding in weight loss efforts. Here is a list of foods that can potentially boost metabolism and assist women in their weight loss journey.
  1. Lean Protein: Foods like chicken breast, turkey, lean beef, fish, tofu, and Greek yogurt are rich in protein. Protein requires more energy to digest and metabolize than carbohydrates or fats, resulting in a higher metabolic rate.
  2. Green Tea: Drinking green tea can have a thermogenic effect, meaning it temporarily increases metabolism. It also contains catechins, which may help in fat oxidation and weight management.
  3. Chili Peppers: Spicy foods containing capsaicin, such as chili peppers, can boost metabolism and increase calorie burning for a short period after consumption.
  4. Whole Grains: Foods like oats, quinoa, brown rice, and whole wheat bread are rich in fiber and complex carbohydrates. They require more energy to digest, keeping you full for longer and aiding in weight loss.
  5. Leafy Greens: Vegetables like spinach, kale, broccoli, and Swiss chard are low in calories and high in fiber and nutrients. They provide volume to your meals without adding excessive calories.
  6. Citrus Fruits: Oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes are high in vitamin C, which can help with fat oxidation during exercise and enhance the metabolic process.
  7. Berries: Berries such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are low in calories and packed with antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins. They can help satisfy sweet cravings without adding excessive sugar or calories.
  8. Nuts and Seeds: Almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds, and chia seeds are rich in healthy fats, protein, and fiber. They provide satiety and can increase metabolism due to their nutrient composition.
  9. Spices: Turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne pepper have been linked to increased metabolism and improved insulin sensitivity, potentially aiding weight loss.
  10. Eggs: Eggs are a great source of high-quality protein, vitamins, and minerals. They can help keep you full and provide steady energy throughout the day.
  11. Legumes: Lentils, chickpeas, black beans, and kidney beans are high in protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates. They can help regulate blood sugar levels and promote feelings of fullness.
  12. Low-Fat Dairy: Milk, yogurt, and cheese (in moderation) are rich in calcium, which has been associated with boosting metabolism and promoting weight loss.
  13. Water: Staying hydrated is essential for overall health and weight management. Drinking water can temporarily increase metabolism and help control appetite.
  14. Lean Meats: Skinless chicken, turkey, and lean cuts of beef or pork are excellent sources of protein. They can aid in muscle development and maintenance, which boosts metabolism.
  15. Apple Cider Vinegar: Consuming diluted apple cider vinegar before meals may help control appetite, regulate blood sugar levels, and increase metabolism.
Remember, while incorporating these foods can support weight loss efforts, it's crucial to maintain a balanced diet, practice portion control, and engage in regular physical activity. Consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian for personalized advice based on your specific dietary needs and health conditions.

2023.05.29 11:29 Geldar256 OSP wins almost every match and it kind of ruins the game

Yes yes I know, another post about how OSP is supposedly OP. It's been discussed at length in many forums. But seriously... I've been tracking my last 10 games as O(S)P and won 8/10 matches in standard 3k points 4v4. Then i went to play ANS and we won an amazing 3/10 matches. This is by no means a comprehensive study but rather a quick sample over like 4 days of playing. The average levels on both teams were around low silver ranks throughout all games which seems what most players are comfortably sitting at, so these games were by no means influenced by some high ranks stacking OSP or carrying ANS in the couple wins.
Be aware, wall of text incoming.
So I went digging in the forums and found some distinct viewpoints and arguments which are worth highlighting:
  1. OSP is new and ANS hasn't figured out how to counter it yet.
  2. ANS is rarely utilizing their missile advantage in hybrids
  3. Beams
  4. ANS has the ewar and intel advantage
Starting with 1. I don't believe this is still the case , ANS teams have come up with builds to counter specific OSP builds but generally fall into a trap of being overspecialized and unable to cope with the flexibility of OSP teams. Also even if this was the case shortly after the release of OSP, wouldn't this also be the case for OSP? Experiencing teething issues and having to figure out the new balance. But OSP wrecking ANS has been reported within days after the update...
For 2. I also don't think this is the case. Both during my ANS games and my OSP games the ANS players, including me, used hybrids extensively. Some players going as far as bringing pure S3H missile Vauxes or S2H missile Axfords to barrage OSP fleets. But OSP is a master at tanking missiles, mainly thanks to the Ocello which can softkill everything from within a deathball (my favorite thing to do at the moment is just watching CMD or ACT missiles veer off course and part in front of our ships like the red sea for Moses), but also thanks to lineships being mostly open space which absorbes HE. On top of this the Grazer being EO controlled (ignoring BSSJ) makes short work of many hybrids with softkill proof targeting. The result is usually superficial damage on the main fighting ships and some dead shuttles. Meanwhile OSP teams have embraced S2 missile spam on top of the meme container spam, potentially barraging a single group of ships with 32 missiles at once From one ship. I've seen missile lineships with well over 250 S2 missiles already, putting any tech advantage ANS thinks it has to shame with ridiculous, sustained volume of fire.
Thirdly, beams. Yes beams are cool. Can't really argue against that. They work too but they tend to be a slow and predictable asset. Beamstones, Axes and Sols rarely are where they are most needed and often easily get kited or pinned in place by more maneuverable OSP assets. OSP shuttles generally win the capgame before beam heavy teams get their hulls out of spawn.
Lastly something I read the developer write on steam: ANS has the ewar and intel advantage. This is something I find very hard to subscribe to completely. In the jamming and burnthrough radar department I can somewhat agree (if we kindly ignore the Ocello). ANS can cope with getting jammed better across all their ships, sure. On the Intel side it' where it starts to get messy. OSP can utilize EWR to track ANS across the map, home in on them with bloodhounds and track with deadly accuracy on 14km range. OSP also has access to the intel center and analysis annexes to analyze tracks just as well as ANS can. That leaves ELINT (if we once again kindly ignore the Ocello) as a unique strength of ANS. Adding elint to a fleet is a prime example for overpriced specialization in ANS fleets to counter basic OSP assets. A tugboat with an EWR is much cheaper than an arad missile ship with elint required to take it out. Or two elint ships where one or both have arad missiles (if you want a fix to know the exact position). So we have a situation where either ANS ignores EWRs and Bloodhound tracking ships and has to deal with being tracked accurately at all times or some players invest a third of their points into countering just one basic asset of the OSP team, restricting player and even team fleet compositions. So in total it seems like ANS and OSP are unevenly matched in the intel department with the scales tipping heavily into OSPs favor due to accurate long range tracking and analysis, forcing ANS to invest into counters and having access to ANS jammers, burnthrough radars and elint via the Ocello. I don't know about you but when I play OSP I feel like I'm given a solid picture and better situational awareness of the battlespace compared to when I'm playing ANS and that just doesn't feel right at all... playing a "state of the art high-tech navy" and poking around in the dark.
Before I forget: The shuttle's ability to cap and especially backcap sectors is a huge thorn in the side of ANS teams with predominantly slow ships. Heck even the Vauxes struggle to catch them at times and lose a cap race on big maps. I think something has to be done about combat ineffective ships capturing sectors because often OSP seems to win by just running around the larger maps and capturing sectors with empty shuttles who expended all ammo. It's just lame.
I think all these points heavily contribute to OSP winning over ANS in many matches. OSP's flexibility while ANS can't afford to make any mistake in fleet comps or team comps. Feel free to discuss in the comments and / or disagree with me. Especially the latter because I'm seriously interested in what your winning plays as ANS are...

2023.05.29 03:42 Massive_Level_7127 What Are Bluetooth Bone Conduction Headsets and Can They Damage Your Hearing?

What Are Bluetooth Bone Conduction Headsets and Can They Damage Your Hearing?
This is an era of frequent disasters, but also an era of heroes. At the scene of emergencies such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, there are always respectable firefighters who are desperate to save lives. Various equipment enters the rescue scene with firefighters, among which communication equipment is the most important. The harsh environment of the rescue site is a huge challenge for firefighters to communicate.
To solve this problem, people have equipped firefighters with a new communication artifact — tactical Bluetooth bone conduction headsets to help firefighters listen to clear instructions in noisy and harsh environments, so that they can accurately and quickly reply to information. Tactical Bluetooth bone conduction headsets relatively bulky. Based on the same principle of sound transmission, engineers have developed this type of headphones for ordinary users. In the past two years, they have become a phenomenon-level earphone product and are very popular among young people.

What are Bluetooth bone conduction headsets?

Bone conduction earphones are earphones that “attach the sounding unit to the temple and other parts, convert the sound into mechanical vibration by the sounding unit, cause the bone to vibrate through the mechanical vibration, and conduct the sound to the auditory nerve from the bone”. Simply put, Bluetooth bone conduction headsets are headphones that use human bones as the sound transmission medium.

Bluetooth bone conduction headsets are a new application of mature technology. Its technology is widely used in the military, fire protection, hearing aids, and other fields. Daily listening to music is a newly expanded application field of bone conduction earphones. However, it is foreseeable that the field of listening to music will make Bluetooth bone conduction headsets more popular.
However, some people are worried that bone conduction headsets will damage hearing

Can Bluetooth bone conduction headsets damage hearing?

Bluetooth bone conduction headsets are usually less harmful to the ears, but if used for a long time and at excessive volume, hearing damage can occur.

Since Bluetooth bone conduction headsets do not need to be plugged into the ear canal when worn, they will not cause damage to the ear due to wearing them. They transmit sound without passing through the ear canal and eardrum, which avoids eardrum damage caused by vibrating the eardrum.
When the Bluetooth bone conduction headsets are used, the ear canal is kept open, which is important for the hygiene of the ear. And they will not cause the ear canal to be wet and stuffy to breed bacteria due to sweat depositing caused by long-term exercise, thereby avoiding the damage to the ear by diseases such as otitis media.
In addition to small damage to the ear canal and eardrum, Bluetooth bone conduction headsets also have very little damage to the inner ear. Due to the relatively gentle and stable vibrating waves of the headphones, they have little damage to the cochlea. Moreover, the electromagnetic waves of them are very small, and their impact on the auditory nerve and brain nerve is also very small.
Therefore, Bluetooth bone conduction headsets will not damage hearing, they protect hearing completely, from the ear canal, eardrum, cochlea to auditory nerves, etc..They are the healthiest kind of headphones.
For hearing protection, when using Bluetooth bone conduction headsets, remember not to use high volumes for a long time, which can cause damage to hearing. In fact, no matter what kind of headphones you wear, long-term use at high volume will definitely cause damage to hearing. It is generally recommended that after using headphones for 2–3 hours, you should rest for 10–15 minutes.
In addition to very little damage to the ears, Bluetooth bone conduction headsets are also very safe. They allow you to listen to music when you can also hear the surrounding environment sounds, which avoids outdoor sports encounters danger. And they are also very comfortable to wear. These advantages are determined by their working methods

How does Bluetooth bone conduction headsets work?

Bluetooth bone conduction headsets are a new application of proven technology, but bone conduction has a long history, with its first applications dating back to the 18th century.

It is rumored that Beethoven, who was deaf, rubbed one end of a long rod into the piano. He put the other end in his mouth and kept it as close to the ear as possible. When playing, the long rod transmitted the sound to the jawbone and the cochlea of the inner ear, so that Beethoven could hear the sound of the piano. This was so important for Beethoven cause he regained his sense of hearing again and he can continue his music composition. This may be the earliest documented application of bone conduction technology.

When the bone conduction headphone works, it converts the sound signal into mechanical vibration by the sound unit and drives the skull to vibrate at the same frequency, allowing the sound to reach the cochlea of the middle ear and inner ear. Finally, we can hear the sound. In the process of sound transmission, they directly bypass the ear canal and eardrum to reach the inner ear, taking a shortcut. Just because it takes a shortcut, it reduces the damage to the ear canal and eardrum, making it the healthiest headphone.
Most of us have been exposed to bone conduction in our daily life. Put your ears close to the ground, and you can hear the footsteps of “tap, tap, tap” through vibration; cover your ears, and you can still hear yourself mumbling, which is a natural phenomenon of bone conduction.
Bone conduction headphones are becoming more and more popular among young people,and more and more brands join this field.So, which brand is the best?In my opinion, those brands that have accumulated technology in this field are trustworthy.Below, I have sorted out some good Bluetooth bone conduction headphones brands, and recommend them to you. I hope they can help.

1. Wissonly Hi Runner Bluetooth bone conduction headsets

Recommended reason
Wissonly bone conduction vibration unit optimization technology is one of the best technical solutions in the industry, because their team has accumulated in the field of bone conduction for 10 years, which is highly respected by people in the industry in terms of product quality and hearing protection.
Once, there was a saying that the sound quality of Bluetooth bone conduction headsets was average. However, Wissonly Hi Runner refreshes this knowledge. It is excellent in sound quality. It uses a 360-degree bone conduction vibration unit, which can increase the vibration area by 35% compared with traditional Bluetooth bone conduction headsets. Moreover, its loss of bone conduction sound transmission is lower, making the sound more shocking and powerful.
Wissonly Hi Runner has added a number of innovative features to make Bluetooth bone conduction headsets better integrated into many scenes in life. It supports IPX8 diving waterproof, which is very good for me who loves swimming. What’s crazy is that it can still work normally under 20 meters of water! It also has 32GB of memory, so it can play music even if it is not connected to a mobile phone. I basically use it as an MP3 player, and I don’t take my mobile phone for running at night. It uses the Bluetooth 5.0 chip, and outdoor activities can make the connection more stable.
In terms of appearance, Wissonly Hi Runner adopts classic black color, and its simple appearance involves matching whatever clothes you wear in any scene.

2.Philips 7607 Bluetooth bone conduction headsets

Recommended reason
Its sounding unit adopt a large-size vibrator of 17mm, which makes it have the effect of high, medium and low triple-frequency balance in sound quality performance. The low-frequency dive is sufficient, the medium and high frequencies are clear and not harsh, but there will be some missing sounds. It is also equipped with an intimate LED night run lamp at the rear end of the body, which can turn on the LED by turning on the key three times in a row. It also has three modes, which is suitable for wearing at night, so that people around it can perceive their own position and ensure their own safety factor to a certain extent.Its IPX6 waterproof rating is not afraid of sweat in daily wear.

3.AfterShokz OPENRUN PRO Bluetooth bone conduction headsets

Recommended reason
Openrun PRO also pays great attention to comfort in wearing, and its body is made of skin-friendly silicone which makes it more comfortable, and it can be better enjoyed. In order to reduce the weight, titanium alloy is selected in its connection material, which is not easy to bend and deform, ensuring the service life. The Bluetooth bone conduction headsets are also equipped with Qualcomm QCC3024 chip and Bluetooth 5.0, and have stable connection and no disconnection in daily use.

4.earsopen PEACE Bone Conduction Headset

Recommended reason
Earsopen was born in Tokyo, Japan, and is a brand of Bluetooth bone conduction headsets owned by BoCo Co., Ltd. Earsopen PEACE TW-1 is the first Bluetooth headphones with left-right separation among bone conduction products. Because the sounding unit is small and closer to the ear canal, the sound leakage is also very small. The main body of the headphone is T-shaped, and the ear clip is adopted. Comfort is not as high as the first two models, but this way of wearing is really the only one. If you must choose TWS’s one, it’s good.

5. vidonn F3 Bluetooth bone conduction headsets

Recommended reason
The weight of this bone conduction headphone is only 29g, and there is comfortable when it is used, whether it is hanging on the neck or hanging on the ear for a long time. The charging port of F3 headphones is a universal standard MICRO-USB interface. The charging port is waterproof with a soft rubber plug, which is not connected to the body, so there is a risk of loss. The disadvantage is that the sound quality is average, and the sound leakage is serious.
Among the several bone conduction headsets recommended above, Wissonly and Aftershokz are the two products with the best overall performance, both in terms of sound quality, safety, comfort and sound leakage reduction.Considering the cost performance ratio, Wissonly will be better and worth recommending.

2023.05.29 03:29 Alarmed-Custard-6369 Recurring neck swelling and thyroid nodules on right side

40F - ADHD currently taking Ritalin 10mg 2 x day, Magnesium-L Threonate and N-acetyl-cysteine. Had hip labrum replacement in July last year. Have had COVID twice in April 2022 and March 2023. Non-smoker.
For the last 1 1/2-2 years the right side of my neck swells and it stays that way for days, weeks or even months at a time. It has gradually become longer and more frequent. At this point it always feels slightly more swollen than the other side and my jaw is less defined on that side. When it's really bad, the edge of my face will also swell, including my earlobe and even up to my temple and I get pain around the bottom of my jaw that goes up behind my ear and into my head.
About a year ago I started gagging easily (especially when brushing my teeth) and choking on nothing as it feels like my throat is full and anything can set off my gag reflex.I have previously been prone to ear infections but I haven't had one for years. My mother has Graves Disease and I think there's other thyroid disorder in the family I'm just not sure what. I had a dental checkup recently that didn't find anything that would explain it.
I had an ultrasound in Feb and they found nodules on my thyroid:
Right lobe 4.8 x 1.6 x 1.4cm, volume 6.3mlLeft lobes 4.0 x 1.8 x 1.4cm, volume 5.3mlComplex exophytic nodule extending from right isthmus 29 x 18 x 22mm, calcified lesion in mid pole 6 x 5mm.
Tiny solid lesions in lower pole on the left measuring 4 & 3mm. The region of interest corresponds to the prominent edge of the right parotid gland. The right parotid gland is unremarkable. Normal appearing lymph nodules. There is a TIRADS-4 nodule on the right isthmus and the other nodules are TIRADS-2.
I had a biopsy in Feb with the following results:
Thyroid: Right lobe. Mid zone. Size in mm: 9.2x8.4. Echogenicity: Heterogenous. Margins: Ill-defined (Border of nodule difficult to distinguish from thyroid parenchyma in areas) . Composition: Solid (0 - <5 % cystic). Echogenic foci: Punctate (Dot-like foci with no posterior acoustic shadowing \[<1 mm\] ? Calcium, ? Hyperreflective colloid crystals) and macrocalcifications (> 1mm +/- posterior acoustic shadowing). Shape: Wider than tall. Doppler: no vascularity identified. Number of needle passes: 1.
Thyroid: Isthmus. Left of midline. Size in mm: 32.3x13.4 . Echogenicity: Heterogenous. Margins: Smooth (Uninterrupted. Well-defined. Curvilinear edge). Composition: Predominantly solid (Soft tissue =/> 50% of the nodule). Echogenic foci: Punctate (Dot-like foci with no posterior acoustic shadowing [<1 mm\] ? Calcium, ? Hyperreflective colloid crystals) and macrocalcifications (> 1mm +/- posterior acoustic shadowing). Shape: Wider than tall. Doppler:Vascularity is mainly lesional.Degree of vascularity: mild. Number of needle passes: 1.Remainder of thyroid: No abnormality.
Both nodules were identified and confirmed by matching with the previous images.This nodule felt focally gritty to the needle when traversed in multiple directions in a systematic fashion. The smears contain abundant thin and clumped colloid and multiple follicular epithelial fragments. The cellularity of the follicular tissue is within normal limits and a mixed pattern with a predominance of macro follicles an absence of architectural monotony is identified. There is no significant cytological atypia or architectural disarray. The microcalcification did not yield any calcific material or psammoma bodies and nuclear features of papillary carcinoma are not present. There is no lymphoplasmacytic reaction and the appearances are those of a follicular lesion with a benign pattern.The solid areas of this complex nodule were sampled in multiple directions in a systematic fashion. The smears contain abundant thin and watery colloid and multiple follicular epithelial fragments. Clumps of compact colloid are also present. The cellularity of the follicular tissue is within normal limits and a macrofollicular pattern is readily seen and there is no architectural monotony or cytological atypia. No calcific material or psammoma bodies have been aspirated and nuclear features of papillary carcinoma are not present.
I had blood tests done in August 2022:
TSH 1.5 mIU/LFT4 19 pmol/L
FT3 5.9 pmol/LAnti-Thyroglobulin Abs (aTGI) < 1.3 IU/mL
Anti-Thyroidal Peroxidase Abs 33 IU/mL
My GP doesn't think I need to see a thyroid specialist but also said he didn't know how close an eye we should be keeping on the nodules. He suggested seeing an ENT specialist next as he thinks the neck swelling and the nodules could be unrelated.
I just wanted to get some other opinions as I am worried, it really just doesn't feel right at all. Any advice on what it might be, what to do next or how closely the nodules should be monitored would be really helpful. Happy to answer any questions or provide ultrasound images etc.
Thank you for your time.

submitted by calzoneman129 to Sat [link] [comments]

2023.05.28 03:37 One-Bowler2538 Help troubleshooting poor video signal?

Hello. I recently installed a 6 disc DVD changer in my car. There is a composite video cable that runs about 18-20 feet from the changer to the screen which is in the head unit.
The picture looks fine at lower volumes but when you turn the volume up some horizontal line distortion appears. The DVD changer also plays CD's and the distortion appears on the static CD screen as well. You can see the distortion pulsing/getting worse when the subs hit. The head unit has an internal disc drive and video signal from the internal drive is flawless at any volume.
I am thinking this is some type of signal interference? Does that sound feasible? It is an older car and I don't want to take the radio/deck out more than I have to so I want to get all my ducks in a row before I start testing things.
Could a twisted/shielded RCA cable potentially fix something like this?
If you want any more information just ask. I enjoy talking about this stuff.

2023.05.27 22:11 Fearnlove Samsung Q990B vs Sony HT-A9: my thoughts

Having owned both these systems in the last month I wanted to share my thoughts for anyone in similar shoes.
My room is small (4m x 3m) and rectangular. Not had dropouts on either system.
Soundscape: this goes to the A9, with a big ‘but’.
The lack of centre channel on the A9 didn’t bother me at all, the front speakers were pretty close after all, and it made the soundstage noticeably wider at the front than the Q990B, but the Samsung does produce sounds that feel they come from the sides where there are no speakers.
On to the ‘but’, the height channels on the Samsung Q990B give slightly better results for overhead sounds IMO. That’s even after I tweaked the settings on the A9 to tell it I had a lower seating position (which I do).
I feel like in a bigger space the A9 would be much better.
I can’t call this one. The A9 has an on screen display which makes life slightly easier, but the Q990B is a dot matrix display or phone app. The phone app allows more customisation for things like channel volume than you can do on the A9.
2 fewer power plugs on the Samsung is great, being able to place the A9 speakers in irregular locations is also great, but…
Since I sit quite close to one of the rears, neither system can magically make me feel central (the Samsung app would allow me to adjust levels but I’m not alone in the room!) AND in all honesty, we had a Sony rear speaker approx 60cm higher than the other, but you could tell when listening- the Sony wizardry wasn’t working for me so well in a small room.
The Samsung app could be snappier, but on booting up the Sony, it would switch the TV between Apple TV and Sony on screen display uncontrollably several times which made it feel clunky and slow to boot up.
A9 with SW5 by far. A9 alone was quite thin sounding (the Samsung would be way better) but the SW5 was a different level for me, much more refined.
The Samsung sub can shake the room as much (up to a volume I’m willing to try) and it gives the cinematic rumble, but it feels like it’s agricultural about it.
Contrary to what I’ve read, I feel like the Sony is better, bigger rears and better bass with the SW5.
Q990B all day. I got it for £900 new on Amazon (3rd party seller) and the Sony with sub was £1,950 from Sony Centre (discounted in store).
I miss the Sony, but it’s not twice as good despite being two times the price.
Also I had a huge problem with the Sony I haven’t seen anyone mention- with the Apple TV 4K plugged in directly to the Sony, the image on the TV would skip frames every couple of seconds which gives the picture a stutter.
The mrs didn’t notice but it drove me nuts, couldn’t fix it so I returned it. It can’t be doing a pass through because the same source directly in to the same HDMI port was fine, so I just took it back while I could.
Given I can’t be bothered with anything more elaborate than this Samsung setup, and the price is so good at the moment, it’s going to be a keeper.

2023.05.27 03:23 Fiddlover-Violin The most comprehensive guide to violin mute in 2023

The most comprehensive guide to violin mute in 2023
David Brown is an adult beginner violinist who started learning the violin at the age of 26. He once told me, "When I first played the violin, I never imagined that it could produce such a loud sound right by my ear, and it sounded so unpleasant that I almost gave up learning the violin. With the guidance of my teacher, I installed a mute and found the right pitch, finally hearing the beautiful sound of the violin."
Like many beginner violinists, David Brown faced significant challenges when he first started learning the violin. It not only requires the guidance of a teacher but also the assistance of accessories. Besides a high-quality violin, accessories such as a violin mute are essential.

What is the violin mute?

The violin mute is an accessory used for the violin to alter its tone and volume. It is typically a small device made of wood, rubber, or metal that can be attached to the violin bridge or strings.
The primary function of a violin mute is to reduce the resonance of the instrument, thereby decreasing the volume and brightness of the sound. It achieves this by suppressing the vibrations between the bow and the strings, resulting in a quieter output. This is particularly useful for playing in low-volume settings or when aiming for a soft, mellow, or muted sound quality.
Whether for professional musicians or beginners, a violin mute is a common accessory that offers players more options in terms of tone and adapts to different performance environments.

The material of the violin mute

Generally, violin mutes are commonly made of metal, rubber, wood, and plastic, each with its characteristics.
1、Metal mutes: Metal mutes typically produce a bright, clear tone and offer good volume control. They provide excellent tone projection and penetration, suitable for situations that require a brighter and clearer tone. Different types of metal mutes may yield subtle differences. For example, an aluminum mute may produce a brighter tone compared to an iron mute. Additionally, metal mutes are often durable and stable.
2、Rubber mutes: Rubber mutes usually produce a soft, warm tone. They are effective in reducing volume, minimizing resonance, and creating a softer tone. Rubber mutes are commonly used in situations where volume reduction or a serene atmosphere is desired. Different rubber materials used in mutes can also yield subtle differences. For instance, a hard rubber mute may produce a brighter tone, while a soft rubber mute may produce a softer tone. Rubber mutes often have good damping properties.
3、Wooden mutes: Wooden mutes typically produce rich, warm resonance. They cause relatively minor changes in tone but can enhance the violin's resonance and depth, resulting in a fuller tone. The wood used in wooden mutes can vary, such as oak, maple, and others. Different types of wood used in mutes may have subtle effects on the tone, although the variations are relatively small. Wooden mutes often have good resonance and depth.
4、Plastic mutes: Plastic mutes are commonly found in the market and generally fall between rubber and wooden mutes in terms of effect. The tone and volume influence of plastic mutes can vary depending on their specific material composition.
In terms of mute effectiveness, generally speaking, metal mutes are considered better than rubber mutes and rubber mutes are considered better than wooden and plastic mutes. However, this is not an absolute rule, and the best choice is determined by the actual trial of different mute materials and listening to the resulting tone and volume effects.

Common violin mutes on the market

Next, I will list some commonly found mutes on the market and their advantages and disadvantages, which can be helpful when making a purchase decision.
Round Tourte Mute
The Round Tourte Mute is a common violin mute known for its simple and practical design. It features a round shape, making it easy to install and adjust. It can be placed between the A and D strings and pushed towards the bridge when needed, securing it on top of the bridge.
Round Tourte Mute-1
  1. Affordable, typically available for around $2-3.
  2. Less prone to being lost as it can be hung on the strings when not in use.
  3. Only affects the volume while having minimal impact on the tone. It is a popular choice among many orchestra violinists.
  1. Provides minimal dampening of sound, resulting in a less noticeable mute effect.
  2. Does not significantly alter the tone.
  3. When not in use, it may create unwanted noise if placed on the strings.
Suitable for: Orchestra or concert violinists, as well as violin teachers.
Shaped Tourte Violin Mute
The mute effect of this mute is relatively smaller compared to the Round Tourte Mute. However, if the price is a consideration, the shaped mute is the most inexpensive option. It is installed by hanging it on one of the violin strings, typically the A or D string, and pushing it toward the bridge to secure it in place.
Shaped Tourte Violin Mute-2
  1. Very affordable, some can be purchased for less than $1.
  2. Less prone to being lost as it can be hung on the strings when not in use.
  3. Highly flexible, allowing for placement on either the A or D string.
  4. Only affects the volume with minimal impact on the tone.
  1. Provides less muting effect compared to the Round Tourte Mute.
  2. When not in use, it may create unwanted noise if placed on the strings.
  3. Does not significantly alter the tone.
  4. May affect the resonance of the violin.
Suitable for: Orchestra or concert violinists, as well as violin teachers.
Spector Violin Mute
The Spector Violin Mute, created by Fred Spector, a violinist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, is designed to be easily attached between the A and D strings by pushing them toward the bridge. It is typically priced around $7.
D'Addario Spector Violin Mute-3
  1. Very convenient to use, as it can be hung between the A and D strings and easily pushed towards the bridge when needed.
  2. Exquisitely small and discreet, available in colors that can match the instrument, making it less noticeable.
  3. Only affects the volume with minimal impact on the tone.
  4. Even when not in use, it does not create unwanted noise and can be left on the strings without the risk of losing it.
  1. Provides a relatively small mute effect.
  2. Not suitable for children due to its small size, as they may put it in their mouths.
  3. Does not significantly alter the tone.
Suitable for: Solo violinists who require a mute.
Bech Magnetic Mute
The Bech Magnetic Mute is equipped with a magnet and comes with a small accessory that can be attached to the tailpiece, allowing the mute to be magnetically secured to it when not in use. The installation method is the same as the Round Tourte Mute.
Bech Magnetic Mute-4
  1. Provides a better muting effect compared to the Spector Violin Mute.
  2. Even when not in use, it does not create unwanted noise and can be left on the strings without the risk of losing it.
  3. Only affects the volume with minimal impact on the tone.
  1. Can be quite expensive, typically costing over $20.
  2. Does not significantly alter the tone.
  3. The muting effect is average.
Suitable for: Orchestra or concert violinists, as well as violin teachers.
Rubber Claw Style Violin Mute
This is a very common violin mute. When daily life and practice time cannot be balanced or when you come home tired from work and want to play the violin to relax but are afraid of disturbing the neighbors, this mute is your good companion. It effectively suppresses the vibration of the entire bridge, thereby reducing the overall resonance of the violin. It can be directly installed on the bridge.
Rubber Claw Style Violin Mute-5
  1. Affordable, typically costing around $5.
  2. Various styles are available, allowing for different numbers of claws.
  3. Provides a good muting effect by effectively reducing vibrations.
  4. Has an impact on the tone, making it softer.
  1. Easy to lose, requires proper storage when not in use.
  2. Alters the tone.
  3. Not suitable for solo or performance use.
Suitable for: Violin beginners, children, or violinists who need to practice frequently.
Metal Claw Style Violin Mute
This type of mute is made of metal, and different metal compositions will produce different muting effects, with noticeable changes to the tone.
Metal Claw Style Violin Mute-6
  1. Provides an excellent muting effect by effectively reducing vibrations.
  2. Various styles are available, allowing for different numbers of claws.
  3. Influences the tone, making the sound bright and clear.
  1. Relatively heavy, which may affect the playing experience.
  2. There is a possibility of damaging the violin. If the metal mute falls onto the violin's top plate, it may cause damage.
  3. Not suitable for all types of bridges. Improper installation of a metal mute on an incompatible bridge may damage the bridge.
  4. Relatively expensive, usually costing around $10 or more.
  5. Not suitable for solo or performance use.
Suitable for: Adult violin beginners.

How to choose a suitable mute for yourself?

  1. Choose based on your playing needs, which can be categorized into practice or performance. For practice, it is recommended to select the Claw Style Violin Mute. For performance, options like the Round Tourte Mute, Shaped Tourte Violin Mute, Spector Violin Mute, and Bech Magnetic Mute can be considered.
  2. Consider the desired level of muting effect. If you primarily use the mute at home, it is advisable to choose a mute with a stronger muting effect.
  3. Take age into account. Some mutes, such as the Spector Violin Mute, may not be suitable for children due to their small size, which could be a choking hazard. Similarly, the Metal Claw Style Violin Mute might be too heavy for young children.
  4. Consult with vendors or seek assistance from a teacher. Their professional advice can provide valuable insights.
  5. If you are a professional violinist, it is best to select a mute based on your personal preference or even consider making one yourself.

Apart from mutes, you can choose an electric violin

If you frequently practice at home and want to avoid producing sound even with a highly effective mute, you can consider using an electric violin. This way, you can play with headphones on, ensuring no disturbance to your neighbors.
44 Purple Lacquer Electric Violin EX2-7
Fiddlover Violin Online Shop offers a classic electric violin model called EX2, priced at $389. It features a beautiful purple color and comes as a package with a bow, pickup, headphones, case, and battery.
However, it is generally recommended to use a traditional violin for practice purposes.

Currently in a 4p campaign as Bannerspear. 3 other party members had retired their Drifter, Boneshaper, and Deathwalker and are now using Trap, Prism, and Kelp
Completing my retirement in a couple of sessions time, current options for me are Blinkblade, Germinate, and Snowflake.
I am prone to AP in general, so I'm not too keen on Blinkblade, but am worried about what I've heard the role of Snowflake is like that may imbalance the party composition.
Any general thoughts?

2023.05.26 23:40 papifunko Elo hell... Or whatever it's called... Is it everywhere?

I'm not claiming I deserve a higher rank than what I am, renting between Gold and Plat.
What I do notice though and would like to know if it happens to higher ranks is that I experience a high volume of players leaving the match on both teams.
It's pretty much a guaranteed win at that point for the opposite team. It's not like it happens to my team every single time, but it sure does contribute to why I feel I'm stuck at this rank.
I don't even feel good when the opposite team this is a player. All that means for me is I'm one match closer to someone on my team leaving.
I like to prepare myself when I lose a team member by adjusting my pick to be less reliant on a team composition. I figured that everybody else is going to be pissed off, upset, emotional, and probably not even playing right to be cohesive and I probably shouldn't rely on them.
I'm also not that type of person that is the last one of the team standing prolonging the match for no reason when they can just end. I hate those people. I just want to give an honest shot at winning even if im one man down.

2023.05.26 20:51 ScurveDream Is there any compound or way to help build DRY muscle tissue easily, not "bad" muscle?

I know someone will think "go to bodybuilding/steroid subreddit" but this is from a Peat-prism. Bodybuilders/conventional wisdom disregards Peat or any of those subjects, which is why I wanna analyze/discuss it here and the notion of muscle, what it means, what really explains why some have more than others, what drives or "maintains" the muscle or what "muscle" even is, etc.
According to the Ray Peat idea, testosterone is an unsaturated compound (like PUFA-ish) and Ray believed that too much can be bad because it can just amount to estrogen-functionally in high amounts. Testosterone may not be exactly like estrogen in that it may lower estrogen, but take a lot of it even without estrogen and perhaps it can cause problems on its own somehow I thought.
Presumably this is why high dose test users, BBers, etc. might be more prone to health issues since they tend to go for high testosterone (as a base), then add other compounds or ancilliaries.
But my question is, does Ray or any of the Peat-sphere then know if it's possible to build tissue/muscle through the work of DRY compounds, LOW stress (no "gymcel" or years of strict, dogmatic workout programs and struggling/straining yourself too hard) or things that don't promote fast swelling/tissue expansion/etc. like high testosterone, estrogen, etc. tend to do?
Because many muscle builders swear often by testosterone, or some similar variant suggesting many guys who build lots of muscle might technically have "wet" muscle tissue then? Like, "wet" meaning it's promoted through high degree of "stuck water" in the mitochondria, cell, etc. and instability maybe? Like water accumulates and drives the tissue to hold the muscles out full and etc. which is why some have that "fuller" muscly look while others like "flat" maybe cuz less cellular wetness or something?
Haidut on the forum called "wet muscle" akin to "fake muscle" in that it's the kind that depletes quicker maybe, or possibly is built through "forced expansion" rather than natural accumulation?
Like some dudes/girls can have HIGHER muscle volume even sedentary, so muscular size is related to the concept of working out BUT NOT ENTIRELY determined initially by degree/intensity alone, lest we would not have old dudes with Popeye forearms who only lift remote controls in front of TVs for 30 years.
And would not have wussy armed dudes who follow workout programs and eat plenty, but still small.
So from my understanding, no, just having "big muscle" isn't merely proof of health/longevity, no.
There is "dry" muscle AKA the kind you can carry around without lots of stress maybe or maladaptiveness in working out heavily to strain yourself over years ("naturally" or not), and then there's wet muscle AKA the kind unsaturated compounds might quickly add on you even with little/no workout training, or the kind forcing/heavy enduring of exercise might create in some.
It makes sense to me, lots of BBers take fish oil (PUFA), eat rice (starch), chicken (histamine-precursor), etc. Starch can increase FFS, cause gut dysbiosis, etc. Both these things can cause accumulation of water, wateglycogen in tissue, etc. PUFA is known to cause inflammation, and prostaglandin, etc. Many BBers and people who try and build muscle follow mainstream diets, AKA "PUFA is good for you."
Given many lifting people who "build muscle" follow higher PUFA, starch, histamine/histadine-precursor diets like lots of chicken per se (which is common these days -- many more eating chicken than beef in the U.S. and Canada at least, I think, than generations ago), it makes sense.
PUFA is a muscle builder for sure because PUFA is an inflammatory trigger, which creates "size."
As Georgi/Haidut said, there's "fake muscle" AKA when BBers look like balloons/watery/puffy rather than more natural, more healthy, more solid and not just bulked out beyond the norm too much.
Going lower PUFA, having low estrogen/PUFA tone, low inflammation, low starch, high progesterone, etc. one is UNLIKELY to carry much muscle around because it is useless.
How muscular are healthy young children? Kids carry little/no muscle tissue, it's not needed to be healthy to be a walking muscle-monster in any way, regardless of how you got that size 'natty' or not.
So it makes sense ... In more cases than one, low PUFA/high progesterone people usually carry low muscle tone because they have low inflammation, low tissue swelling, high metabolism, everything works super fast, body never "gets stuck" clearing out excess tissue, everything is "evened out."
PUFA is a known muscle builder but of "fake muscle" It builds muscle by way of stress. It is not a way to gain size. Haidut has never mentioned a saturated, non-estrogen like way to build muscle.
So ultimately most "muscle" is built one of two ways: stress (workouts with or without PUFA), or stress (PUFA/tone/swelling).
The difference is higher inflammation leads to more "bulk" accumulating, and high metabolism clears it.
Why do you think bodybuilders say never take aspirin, NSAIDS, etc.? Lowering inflammation lowers the "muscle" they can carry. So I'm kind of stumped at how there's no real way to build muscle with no inflammation, low estrogen, childlike hormonal profile, low serotonin, low histamine, etc.
It seems invariably almost everyone dedicated to building muscle relies on stress in some way.
So I thought maybe it's better to just be "tone" than muscly? Like, defined/tight muscles that are smaller but strong rather than puffy/swollen and "big" looking muscles that are way more "bulk-ish."
Like women lifters always say they wanna be "tone, not bulky." Maybe guys should follow this too?
Compounds like AnavaOxandrolone, Boldenone/Equipoise, DHT, antibiotics (can reduce endotoxin/inflammation), and some DHEA/precursor could keep you healthy maybe and retard aging (unlike those crazy 500/test/500/tren/500/winstrol a week routines that tend to age you more).
So ultimately is it healthiest maybe to have low/moderate tone of muscle and actually be TONED rather than have more "bulk mass" that tends to require accumulation, inflammation, stress more?
In that case, what'd be the healthiest/Peat-iest compound that can build DRY or "healthy tissue muscle" & not accelerate cell swelling, aging, mitochondria disruption, or the dangers Peat says of high testosterone as per bodybuilder use, or stressors such as having to workout for years and years to damage/disrupt tissue (plus PUFA/unsaturatedness?) in the body so it expands slowly over time? I ask because I've found it near impossible to build noticeable "mass" if you're low PUFA, low estrogen, low histamine, low inflammation all around, low stress, etc.?
It seems bulky muscles are almost always built through stress, so what's the case here? Try to be lean/toned rather than bulky? So perhaps just Anavar, DHT, antibiotics, a pinch of DHEA/T3?

2023.05.26 19:38 WelcomeToPunderdome Fitment Questions on Fractal Node 304

Hey All
Looking to downsize my PC from a Mid-tower to a Node 304 and run it as a NAS with UnRaid to replace a Synology NAS.
Currently looking people running a Node 304 and MSI Gaming X branded 2 fan cards (1650Super for Media HW Transcode). The clearance is tight, so wanted to ensure things would fit if I can avoid buying a SFX PSU
Current Build going into case
AMD R5 3600 with Wraith Prism cooler Corsair RMi650 modular PSU 4 3.5” drives, 2x4TB, 2x14TB 1tb NVMe volume on backside of board for apps/services
Questions I need help with from Node owners 1: will the PSU with modular cables work for clearance with a 267mm GPU? 2: is there space for SATA cables to plug in via 90 degree ports on MB? Looking at ASRock B550 Phantom for 2.5G LAN 3: with the side fan filter, what’s clearance like in the case for GPU? Fractal says 45mm, my GPU is 44mm, thought about some P12 Slims and deshrouding card
Thanks for input. I’m trying to avoid spending more on a SFX PSU, but might need custom cables due to excess length. Weighing the Pros n Cons.
Swapping to Intel isn’t really an option, trying to be cost effective. Case fits in a spot that is Spouse Approved
