Pls help. I have upgraded my keyboard and trackpad on my T440. The keyboard worked fine and had backlight before I changed my trackpad and now the keyboard light won't come on and the trackpoint doesn't work. I have tried all the recommended driver's. Any ideas?

Fantasy Bingo Has Helped Me Read More, And I'm Loving It!
I can’t believe I read this many books in just 2 months! Seriously, I’m a slow reader who manages to read about 20-25 books a year. But since I saw the Fantasy Bingo post, I thought I’d challenge myself and am already done with 9 squares!

Fantasy Bingo 2023
Some thoughts about each book that I’ve read [in the order in which I read them]:

Coastal Setting: Tress of the Emerald Sea by Brandon Sanderson [5/5]

This was the nicest book I read all year. Seriously, it left me feeling NICE. A sweet adventure tale with Sanderson’s trademark worldbuilding and magic made this a wonderful experience start to finish. I’ve read that many consider this book one of Sanderson’s best, and I can’t help but agree.
Side Note: I was about 35% done with this when I saw the Fantasy Bingo Announcement post. While this book fits the requirements for this square, I’m not 100% confident. If I finish the bingo card ahead of time, I might switch this out with another book.

Book Club or Readalong Book: Orconomics by J. Zachary Pike [5/5]

I added this to my TBR years ago, and then again when I saw the Book Club post. Finally, when I saw this was a square on the card, I just had to read it.
Honestly, I hate that I didn’t pick this up sooner. I loved everything about it. The humour was very reminiscent of Pratchett, and the characters felt very real. I loved how it wasn’t just a mindless parody, but a well-written, thought-out story sprinkled with ample humour, drama, thrill and adventure, almost like a complete package.

Self-Published or Indie Publisher: Spire Climbers [5/5]

Received an eARC around the time I was finishing Orconomics. I really enjoyed Titan Hoppers, so I dived into this one. Holy fricking hell, this book was such a major improvement. It takes everything good from Titan Hoppers and cranks it to 11. It has none of the problems from TH. Even the character work in this one was significantly better than TH. With breakneck speed and awesome worldbuilding, I think this was the fastest I read a book all year.

Set in the Middle East: Gunmetal Gods by Zamil Akhtar [5/5]

Zamil Akhtar has a unique voice that just elevates the whole experience. I don’t even want to compare Akhtar to any other author, because that’s how good he is! The blend of Middle Eastern culture with cosmic horror told from opposing POVs is such a brilliant concept, executed to near perfection by Akhtar’s unique voice and storytelling.

Features Robots: Robots and Empire by Isaac Asimov [4/5]

I started reading the Robots series a year or two ago. This was the last in the series. I always find it hard to review authors from the past. Although this book was first published in 1985, it reads like something from the 50s, which is when I, Robot was first published. From what I’ve learned, Asimov’s books are less about the story and characters, and more about concepts and speculation. In that regard, Robots and Empire is the perfect ending to the Robots series. It envisions a far future where humans, including Earthers, have begun colonising the galaxy and studies that phenomenon from several different perspectives. Every chapter made me think, and that’s what I really loved about the book. Yes, there were dull moments, but all in all a very good read.

Bottom of the TBR: The Martian by Andy Weir [5/5]

I really liked the movie, and this book had been on my TBR for 8 years. Now, I can finally say, the book is better than the movie by leagues! Of course, the film did its best with the medium, but reading this book was a spectacular experience. Weir’s sharp wit, the science behind Watney’s survival, everything plays out so smoothly. I did feel some parts to be a drag, but I kinda knew what to expect so I just powered through. What I loved most about the book was Mark Watney; he’s such a real character, I wish I had known him as just that and not Matt Damon’s realisation of the same.

Druid: Hounded by Kevin Hearne [1/5]

Hated it. Hated everything about it. What a terrible book. A passive protagonist who’s a 2100-year-old immature douche who just sits in his shop and does nothing... why? Gods attack him, threats are raised, and then everything resolves itself because of other characterss. Argh! This was such a frustrating read. Everything that I loved about the other eight bingo books was missing here.
I can’t believe this book is so highly rated. Apparently, the series gets better, then goes downhill. I don’t care enough to find out.

Five Short Stories: Sharp Ends by Joe Abercrombie [3.5/5]

As a First Law fan, I loved it. As a regular fantasy reader, I liked.
Of course, the collection had its share of hits and misses. Some stories were really good, a perfect snippet of TFL. But others read like rejected chapters/plots, which was really disappointing. I loved Shev’s entire story arc which spans over 5 short stories, but I found the end a little underwhelming. Why did Javre’s encounter with Khalul’s agents have to happen off-screen?
I’m somewhat of a completionist, and knowing this collection existed has stopped me from picking up A Little Hatred. Finally, I can get to that book now!

Novella: This Is How You Lose The Time War by Amal El-Mohtar & Max Gladstone [5/5]

Finished this one at breakfast. Holy cow, how do I describe this book? It reminded me of Hearts of Darkness, except this wasn’t a fever dream, it was a highly imaginative trance-like state. This book is so flowery and complex, yet tells a very simple story. It’s not for everyone, definitely. But I really loved how the book made me feel. The puzzling world-building only made the book more mystical, leaving a lot to my imagination. Even though I found myself confused a few times, I kept reading because I was really invested in the two characters.
I would highly recommend this book but with some caution.


I don't know if it's the challenge aspect of it or that I just got lucky with picking up really good books, I'm loving the progress I've made as a fantasy reader in these past 2 months. Some books I'm looking forward to reading for the bingo card:
  • Lords & Ladies by Terry Pratchett [Title with a Title]
  • The Captain by Will Wight [Published in 2023]
  • Starter Villain by John Scalzi [Superheroes]
  • Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi [Magic Realism or LitFantasy]
  • Path of Daggers by Robert Jordan [Sequel]
I’m going to end this long post by just thanking this community. Y’all have introduced me to some of the best books I’ve ever read, and Fantasy is one of my favourite places to lurk on the internet.

2023.05.30 12:48 scribbyshollow Did the ancient Egyptians, Aztecs and ancient chinese peoples have a shared art known as feng shui in the east and geomancy in the west and new world?

I came across a big similarity when reading up about several ancient unconnected cultures and their mythologies. A general story that seems to be an allegory for an old divination technique known as the geomantic act. It seems as if several of these stories about the creation of the first temples/sacred structures/the world are describing a localized version of the same story. I wanted to know some professional opinions on it because personally it think it has finally made sense of these strange mythologies.
I did not write this it was taken from an article I have been reading on an unrelated subject.
"So if all these distant civilizations shared the same ancient culture or started out fdrom the same sort of mother culture then surely there would be some evidence left of it right? I thought so too so I spent a considerable amount of time looking for connections that would be too specific to ignore or pass off as coincidence. Finally after years of searching I found them.
The main one, and what this section is about is a shared cultural art between ancient China, South America and Ancient Egypt. This art is known as geomancy and in China it is known as Feng Shui, each one of these places I just mentioned contain huge pyramids within their borders and both Egypt and the south American cultures have a very similar story of creation that seems to be an allegory for what they call the "geomantic act". A divination technique used to build temples and buildings in the exact right spot (according to the practitioners of it).
This section from the following book details exactly what that is.
Secret Games of the Gods pages:
I will summarize it but you should actually take the time to read it as it is only a few pages.
The actual geomantic act is divining a place using the four directions to pick the right location, then once found stabbing a sword, stake or metal wedge into the ground at the exact center of the planned building, usually there is something done to consecrate this center which they call the navel of the structure. Another way to view it (like the above book says) is a hero slaying a dragon or serpent with the aid of four warriors/weapons/deities then building a holy structure on the place the monster was killed. This is how they represent the act in allegorical form in the European version of it.
For the Egyptian mythology I have posted a scan of a very rare book that details the first published translations of the Edfu Temple in Egypt. As the title indicates it details the mythological origin of the first temple that appeared on earth according to the oldest Egyptian records we had found as of 1969 (when the book was published). The very borders of Prehistory.
You can download it here -
or read it here.
The objective story the Aztec/Olmec/Mayan/Inca (I am unsure who originated them, I am not a historian) and Egyptian creation myth (according to the Edfu Texts) begin with a world of darkness with no land, only sky and water and a god who lives there, then the god one way or another creates the first world/land which is an island, and the first people, eventually fighting ensues, then because of the fighting the earth is engulfed by water or the island disappears (same thing when you are the only land). Then from this water the new world rises and is rebuilt in the old worlds image from the "bones" of the old world.
Now that story could be shrugged off as mere coincidence I suppose, However...Later in these stories of creation another identical event happens. In the Egyptian and Aztec myths a hero or creator god and group of 4 gods, protectors or warriors represented by four animals and four directions. Do battle with a serpent type monster that always represents chaos. They win this fight and slay the monster and then on the spot it was slain build a sacred temple.
What I just described to you seems to be another allegory used in other cultures for what they call the geomantic act, a local adaptation of it.
The following are pages from the Edfu translation book I linked:
-Page 35 in the book is the summery of the fight. A fight between a serpent and a hawk and his four protectors who represent the four directions. Just as the book "Secret Games of the Gods" described the geomantic act, using the four directions the "hero" would slay the "dragon" and build on the spot it was slayed.
-Page 196 details it. It should also be noted that Tanen became Ptah-Tatenen who was the god of creation and temple building. The page below also clarifies that the sacred place would be built where the snake enemy was slayed.
-Page 324 is the overall summery of the book and outlines the new world made from the bones of a dead god.
Here is the link to those pages:
-Page 297 states the earth god which is found to actually represent earth said to have a “Ka” (spirit) and the earths “Ka” being present was the perquisite for building these temples. So the earths energy had to be present at these sites for building and then once the temple was made it had to be activated by joining with the earths Ka.
Also of note these 4 animals from the Edfu texts also turn up in the book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages” written in 1923 a few decades before the Edfu texts were even translated.
Page 296 and the pages from "the secret teachings of all ages":
This fits the geomantic act because it also is using natural energy to pick a location for a sacred building (according to the practitioners of it).
A good summery but I recommend reading the entire book because it has many details not covered in the summery. Now there are several creation myths from the Aztecs but we are only going to go over the relevant one.
You can read more about them here:
This story of creations shares many similarities with the story laid out in the Edfu temple and seems to also be an allegory for the geomantic act.
"In the beginning was the void. It was at some ancient time in the Aztec creation story that the dual god, Ometecuhtli/Omecihuatl, created itself. (Looking back, of course, the Aztecs believed that the many opposites that they saw in the world would have to somehow unite in the origin of the world.) This god was good and bad, chaos and order, male and female. Being male and female, it was able to have children. It had four, which came to represent the four directions of north, south, east and west. The gods were Huizilopochtli (south), Quetzalcoatl (east), Tezcatlipoca (west), and Xipe Totec (north).
The directions were very important to the Aztecs, since their great empire was believed to be at the very center of the universe (remember what I mentioned about the Aztec creation story being political?).
These four gods began to create. They created water, and other gods, and the sea monster Cipactli. Cipactli was part fish and part crocodile, a massive creature as big as all things that now are. This was a consuming monster, a jaw at every joint. Cipactli was to become the source of the cosmos in a strange way.
As the gods continued to create, they had a problem — their creations would fall into the water and be eaten by the dreadful Cipactli. So it was time for war — the four gods attacked the sea monster, pulling her in four directions. She fought back, biting Tezcatlipoca and tearing off his foot. But at last Cipactli was destroyed.
From this enormous creature the universe was created (in some traditions this happened between the last two suns). All the 13 heavens stretch into her head. The earth was created in the middle, and her tail reaches down to the underworld (Mictlán) (nine underworlds, to be exact).
You could say that in the Aztec creation story the world is on the back of this sea monster, floating in the water of space (reminiscent of the Iroquois belief that the world rests on the back of a turtle).”
So according to the above story of creation the Aztecs thought that their land was on the back of a serpent type dragon monster that was killed by four gods by stretching it in the four directions. It actually had many similarities with the geomantic act and its purpose laid out in Secret Games of the Gods. That book also said the purpose of the act was to control the "serpent" in the earth and stop its chaos from destroying the building.
Now its pretty hard to dismiss those stories as mere coincidence, those stories are seemingly localized versions of what is known as the “serpent slaying myth” in indo-european culture. A story that is told and was told in cultures the world over in various localized versions in a time when they had no communication or even knew each other existed. As we saw in the Edfu temple book even the ancient Egyptians had this myth and practice of geomancy.
The following article covers this myth pretty well but as always do your own research and dig deeper and look for more credible sources.
Later in these stories of creation identical events happen. In the Egyptian and Aztec myths a group of 4 gods or protectors, warriors or gods represented by 4 animals and also the 4 directions. Do battle with a serpent type monster that represents chaos in all the stories. They win this fight and slay the monster and then on the spot it was slain build a sacred temple.
These animals are in the Edfu myth Snake, Lion, Bull and hawk. They are the 4 guardians that protect “The Falcon” in its fight against a great “snake”.
in the Aztec myth this scenario also plays out but they are gods who animal incarnations or representations are “plummed serpent” (implying a feathered or flying snake), Jaguar, hummingbird, and a god that has no definite form and takes many forms and is the god of warfare.
in the Aztec myth the gods also represent directions. The 4 Aztec directional gods have aspects of the 4 guardian animals. Not the exact same animals mind you but the overall same animals (snake, bird, big cat, formless/unsure)
(I should note that I was unable to narrow down if these are the actual directions they represent because I came across several conflicting sources. However its the overall general story that is important and not the specifics as they would be adapted anyway)
-Huitzilopochtli (pron. Huit-zi-lo-pocht-li) or ‘Hummingbird of the South’ or ‘Blue Hummingbird (bird)
-Quetzalcóatl (pron. Quet-zal-co-at) or 'Plumed Serpent' (snake or dragon)
-Tezcatlipoca’s nagual, or animal disguise, was the jaguar, the spotted skin of which was compared to the starry sky. A creator god, Tezcatlipoca ruled over Ocelotonatiuh (“Jaguar-Sun”), the first of the four worlds that were created and destroyed before the present universe. (Cat)
-Xipe Totec has a controversial history, some people think that the god replaced an earlier god from the story, I could find no credible source about his animal form or direction (though only north is left) however, He is the inventor of war according to the Aztec mythology so that lines up with the Chinese feng shui direction (we will get to this in a moment) of north being the tortoise or "black warrior" (Warrior)
In the Aztec myth the 4 gods do battle with a "serpent/fish", they slay it by ripping it apart in the 4 directions then build from its body on the spot it was slain their world/empire. That is objectively the same story from the book I linked with 3 out of the 4 animal guardians being the same.
Now these animals turn up in one other place with pyramids within its borders. China and Taoism, specifically the 4 animals that represent the 4 directions often associated with the ancient art of Feng Shui which in actuality is the Chinese art of geomancy.
In feng shui the four directions are represented by 3 out of the 4 are the same kind of animals. The entire art of it is about choosing the right location to build things using divination.
“The Four Symbols (Chinese: 四象; pinyin: Sì Xiàng, literally meaning “four images”), are four mythological creatures appearing among the Chinese constellations along the ecliptic, and viewed as the guardians of the four cardinal directions. These four creatures are also referred to by a variety of other names, including “Four Guardians”, “Four Gods”, and “Four Auspicious Beasts”. They are the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermilion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Tortoise (also called “Black Warrior”) of the North. Each of the creatures is most closely associated with a cardinal direction and a color, but also additionally represents other aspects, including a season of the year, an emotion, virtue, and one of the Chinese “five elements” (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water). Each has been given its own individual traits, origin story and a reason for being. Symbolically, and as part of spiritual and religious belief and meaning, these creatures have been culturally important across countries in the East Asian cultural sphere.”
Not only that but the directions in Aztec mythology are represented by the same color pallet as the Chinese four guardians Black, white, blue and red. Only north and west line up with being the same color and same direction but all the colors are the same.
“The god could be depicted in different colours depending on which cardinal point he was representing — black for north, blue for south, red for east and white for west.”
3 out of 4 creatures match the Aztec and Egyptian mythology and they are all referred to as guardians or gods. The one odd guardian/direction out is the tortoise replacing the bull but interestingly enough the tortoise is also called the black warrior and Xipe Toltec (formless/many formed god) the Aztec god of the north is also the god of warfare. They are also the only animal/god/directions with unsure names or forms which in itself is a link in common all three versions have. Perhaps it was called a different name in the past.
The “plummed serpent” sounds like a spot on interpretation of a Chinese dragon, depicted as flying snakes often with feathers.
Also worth mentioning is the calendar similarities between some of these cultures. The following is a fantastic outline and demonstration of the similarities.
There is undoubtedly a connection here. The beginning of the earth from the various cultures being the same objective story could easily be dismissed as coincidence. The same 4 animals representing in some cases the same directions and originating from the same scenario which is then used to pick the spot to build a holy place or building however cannot be dismissed so easily and I think is incredible evidence that a shared or "mother" culture existed between them. That all three cultures would also contain within their territory pyramids is also to hard to dismiss as a coincidence with all of this evidence laid out.

of course, the 20 year old is going through a career crisis 🚨 supported life paths and fields in chart?
TW (abuse) : All my life I’ve been manipulated or gaslight into believing that my outer reality was stable, I was a very naive kid and have no qualms about admitting that I still can be. I recently learnt I’m autistic so that also adds to it. I have like.. so much trauma dude we could be here forever if I began talking about it. And I’m still only so young, but I want to do big things. No, not be famous. For whatever reason I’m scared of fame and being seen because I always disappoint myself and people when I’m in the spotlight. I want to create generational wealth because my ancestors have also hard a hard life, we struggle with poverty and trauma and mental illnesses. I want to not be like my father and do something so that our line will no longer struggle, but I struggle so much with those in power. I was raised in this cult like thing and had to learn it was a lie, had to learn that my fathers abuse was not love and that he was a bit insane and no I should not strive to be like him, that as a child you should not trust every adult, children are not innocent, teachers can in fact wish the worst on you, and a manager is not expected to care for your wellbeing (I learnt this one recently! Lol).
I’ve had to teach myself I’d get hurt if I submit and that everyone can be an opp. But I don’t wish this to be the case, I try with people it just seems to keep happening… dropped out of school because a our principal didn’t want to understand my mh struggles and didn’t see how hard I was working, out of school and unemployed for 3/4 years and very confused about this world, finally ready to try again and I fall into the hands of the worst advisors and employers. (Honestly, why lose my head over retail anyway.) I’m done with bosses and higher ups for now, I don’t think I can do it anymore…. I’m gonna quit my job this week very scary to confront boss man but I’m seriously considering school now?
This keeps happening with my family, people keep wronging us and it feels like some type of curse. But I don’t have time for a curse I want self love and independence. I don’t know money which would be the obvious but I want to know money. I have many weird and niche career interests, all of which I’m planning to help me reach a bigger goal surrounding real estate (I want a farm) and helping children and young people. I plan to will said farm to any of my families grandchildren, and to adopted kids lol.
Are there any chart indicators of such a curse, how I can avoid it and what fields or path I can take to reach my goals? Thanks! Sorry for the backstory if you hated it.

2023.05.30 12:44 vikingmike3005 Mid 30s - How do I start completely over?

I need help creating a resume. I’m starting from scratch. The difficult part of this is that I've moved my way up in a small company for the last 3 and a half years and have obtained skills that have me eager to apply those skills in an actually fully formed company with safe procedures. With cash flow always extremely tight at this start up, rather than implementing the best possible procedures and working with the best possible machinery, I've been keeping the business afloat with MacGuyver techniques and canniblizing parts from one machine to Frankenstein a new one that will work temporarily for our needs as we grew super fast without the right systems. What I'd like some help with is conveying my experience to hopefully get a job doing something similar but with adequate pay. I'm currently at $19 an hour and would like to be able to convey with my resume that I'm worth at least that. Some context:I’m in my mid-30’s High school grad, dabbled in community college. Blue collar worker, who got most jobs through personal connections. I’ve had 2 jobs over the last 10 years. 7 years as an in-store optical lab tech for a major eyeglass company before they laid off all their techs and outsourced to much larger facilities. 4 years as a production manager for a start-up natural products company. 1 year overlap between the two.As a lab tech, my daily tasks included a lot of data entry, maintenance of lab equipment/machines, and manufacturing of eyeglass lenses to a very precise degree- requiring complex procedures and training to get them spot on to an Optometrist's prescription. I got this job with a very rudimentary resume, and by calling repeatedly for an interview. In this job, I was on an upward track as far as training, certifications, and leadership goes. I had multiple managers/bosses as the company frequently moved people around from store to store, and position to position, and working multiple stores simultaneously I got along great with some of my managers, who wanted to promote me, and urged me to pursue management training, but with other managers, who got caught up in the politics of creating their “dream teams” I found myself on bad terms as they micro-managed in an effort to get employees moved around, and this ultimately ended with my chances for advancement looking quite slim. The company would lay-off all lab techs state wide shortly thereafter.Through word of mouth, I heard about my next job. No actual resume required, just a recommendation and a face to face with the owner of the company.As production (and warehouse) manager, my job is to delegate tasks to the production team, train the team on procedures, keep an accounting of inventory, research and develop new products, submit requests to purchase supplies and raw goods, receive incoming shipments and maintain order in the warehouse. As the production manager at a family-owned start-up, we’ve done some pretty unorthodox things to keep things running. Sometimes our procedures were sloppy, and we’d just barely get by with some of our quick fixes and redneck engineering. We’d have to develop our own systems, and ways of tracking information. All of it has been very informal, and much of our facility is unsafe as far as OSHA would be concerned.I find myself unfulfilled, disrespected, unfairly physically burdened, and underpaid. It is time for me to move on. Never before have I had to actually put a resume together based on how I've gotten previous jobs having almost nothing to do with my resume, so any advice would be appreciated.TL:DR How do I convey my extensive experience and value to a company's Production/Warehouse needs without any formal training/certifications to report? If all experience has been obtained on the job and all work I've done for the last several years hasn't come from formal training/unorthordox avenues (i.e. operating a fork lift without a license and many other instances of faith from my employer being placed on me rather than legal avenues being adhered to, etc) How do I convey my worth to a new company? Any resume template recommendations for my field of work?

2023.05.30 12:43 DroneTheDruid970 Does it get any easier?

In 2019, I lost my Dad to multiple myeloma (cancer of the plasma cells in his bone marrow). 6 months before that, we lost my paternal grandpa to lung cancer, and not even a month after my Dad passed, we lost my maternal grandpa to suicide.
It feels weird knowing they were a part of my life. Having only memories to remember them. I find it hard to believe they were actually even here sometimes. It's been so long already. The world kept moving forward as I did. How can 22 years of life with my Dad not feel real while 4 years without him makes more sense? I don't think I processed these passings well. I acknowledge they're no longer here, but the past just doesn't seem real anymore. Maybe I'm still in denial. Idk. I know it'll never be as it was. It's impossible, but does this truly get easier?
They all have missed so much. My sister got married, she has 2 boys now too. Hell, even I got married (I was voted least likely to settle down amongst my family). There are no kids for me right now, though. My step sister is about to graduate this summer, and his granddaughter is growing up so fast. She was really young when he passed.
Everything was kind of hell with my step mom after dad passed. She wouldn't give up some of his possessions, specifically his drum kit, which rightfully would've gone to me being the only other drummer in the family. But Dad never wrote a will. I digress. Things were not great after that. It was just fuel to the flames.
I didn't get to say goodbye because there was no room for me to stay at the hospital, which was an hour away. I told her to call me if anything happens the second it happens. I got the call about an hour after he passed...they said he began passing around 6am. He was pronounced dead at 10am. I've always held on to that. Not being there. I should've just slept in the fucking hallway. Idk. I just hope this gets easier. I miss him. I miss them all and wish there was a way to relive these memories.
Sorry for the rant at the end. Thanks for reading.

2023.05.30 12:42 Learners__Ink What is integrity project management?

Integrity project management refers to the practice of managing projects with a strong emphasis on ethical behavior, honesty, and adherence to moral principles. It involves conducting projects in a manner that upholds integrity, transparency, and accountability throughout the project lifecycle.
In an integrity-driven project management approach, the focus extends beyond achieving project objectives and encompasses ethical considerations as well. It involves ensuring that project managers and team members consistently act with honesty, fairness, and professionalism in their interactions with stakeholders, clients, and the broader community.
Key aspects of integrity project management may include:
  1. Ethical Decision Making: Project managers are expected to make decisions based on moral principles and ethical guidelines. They should consider the potential impact of their decisions on all stakeholders and make choices that align with honesty, fairness, and integrity.
  2. Transparency and Communication: Open and transparent communication is vital in integrity project management. Project managers should promote a culture of transparency, where information is readily shared, and stakeholders are kept informed about project progress, risks, and any issues that may arise.
  3. Stakeholder Engagement: Engaging with stakeholders in an inclusive and respectful manner is a crucial element of integrity project management. This involves seeking input, involving stakeholders in decision-making processes, and considering their perspectives and concerns.
  4. Risk Management: Identifying, assessing, and managing risks is an integral part of project management. In an integrity-driven approach, project managers should be proactive in identifying ethical risks, such as conflicts of interest, and take appropriate measures to mitigate them.
  5. Compliance and Legal Considerations: Integrity project management involves adhering to relevant laws, regulations, and industry standards. Project managers should ensure that projects are executed in compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, and they should promote a culture of ethical behavior within the project team.
  6. Accountability and Responsibility: Integrity project management emphasizes personal and collective accountability. Project managers should take responsibility for their actions and decisions, and they should encourage team members to do the same. This includes accepting accountability for any mistakes or failures and taking appropriate corrective measures.
By adopting integrity project management principles, organizations can foster a culture of trust, ethical behavior, and social responsibility. This approach not only promotes successful project outcomes but also contributes to long-term sustainability and positive stakeholder relationships.

2023.05.30 12:42 AcrobaticPanicc GShellX: A GPT-powered CLI for generating and executing shell commands - would love some feedback!

Hi Python!
I am excited to introduce a project I've been working on recently, GShellX: a Python-based CLI app powered by OpenAI's GPT-3.5-turbo model. Its primary focus is on generating shell commands and scripts based on free language descriptions.
Here's a quick overview of what GShellX can do:
  1. Generate CLI Commands: It can translate natural language descriptions into shell commands, allowing you to speak your intent and let the program figure out the specifics.
  2. Execute Generated Commands: You have the option to execute the commands it generates immediately.
  3. Interactive Mode: Prompts and commands can be entered on the fly, making it a truly interactive CLI tool.
  4. History: It keeps track of all the prompts and responses for future reference.
I would love to hear your feedback, thoughts, and suggestions. Also, the project is open-source, so if you're interested in contributing to its development, feel free to fork the repository, make your changes, and submit a pull request.
Check it out here:

2023.05.30 12:42 LeoPantheraOfLagos How to handle benefits and compensation for a distributed workforce in different geographical locations?

Managing benefits and compensation for a distributed workforce in different geographical locations can be complex, but here are a few key strategies to consider:
  1. Standardize Where Possible: Develop a standard compensation and benefits structure that serves as a baseline for all employees, regardless of location. This helps ensure fairness and transparency across the board.
  2. Localize Appropriately: While standardization is important, it's equally crucial to adjust for cost of living, local labor laws, and market rates in different regions. Tools like salary benchmarking surveys can help you determine appropriate pay scales for different locations.
  3. Consider Local Laws and Regulations: Ensure you're compliant with labor laws, tax requirements, and benefits regulations in each country where your employees are located. Partnering with a local HR firm or using a Global Employment Organization (GEO) can be beneficial in navigating these complexities.
  4. Flexible Benefits: Offer a "cafeteria-style" benefits plan where employees can pick and choose the benefits most relevant to them. This allows for customization based on personal needs and local norms.
  5. Communication is Key: Clear and consistent communication about compensation and benefits is critical. Make sure your distributed team understands how their compensation package is determined and what benefits they're entitled to.

Did the way Deliver bots work change with last update?
We use to believe a Deliver bot needed to take a full human from our stomach, which meant they needed the capacity to carry it. However now we can see our boys fill up their entire cargo capacity every time.
As an example, I can camp at the top of level 13 with the biggest mobs, and my bot will continue to keep picking up, but it’s less that a full human.

Tarantula died and and there is something wrong with her cerapase what happened?
My curly hair tarantula died shortly after a molt this week i was taking her out of the enclosure so i can preserve her and noticed she has an indentation on her head but im not sure what would have caused this other than being squished by something which i doubt is the case as there is nothing to be able to squish her in her cage
