2023.03.22 18:04 haynagbel [21/M] Sad people who like crows (or cherry clafoutis)

Not sure why I am seeking that, but I want to talk about crows to someone. I am mentally ill and a hermit shut-in. Diagnosed with autism. I don't do well with social situations and prefer being a recluse but I wish for one person, maybe. This is pointless and I don't even know if I really wish for another person's company but maybe. I just want someone to read Lord of the Rings with maybe. I also hope maybe to find other Orthodox Christians. I'm feeling very sad. I want to share music I'm listening to as well. Artists I really like right now are Enya and Lycia but I also like classical music and electronic and ambient. I love listening to Orthodox chants.
I'm very tired. I just wish for someone. My only request is that you are 21+ and tell me a bit about yourself in your message.

2023.03.22 18:03 No-Glass404 I’m pregnant and need advice

I’m in my second trimester and my belly is starting to show. My husband and I finally told our family’s. However since we’ve told them they greet only my belly and completely ignore me. When we see someone they right away touch my belly and say hi to the baby and walk away. Is it normal for me to feel frustrated and annoyed about the situation? My husband said I’m just being jealous and it’s the hormones. What do you think?

First time poster. I just now played an opponent with Chatterfang and I wanted to try him out in my Historic Brawl Jinnie fay (I just really really love cats ok?) deck. I searched here and on the arena bug site and I couldn’t find. I own chatterfang! Is it something to do with legendaries and card colors?
Jinnie is (g)(g)(gw) Chatterfang is (2)(g) (Sorry don’t know the abbreviations, big noob)

2023.03.22 18:02 LtCol_Davenport Bad performance from AngelBird SD

I'll take it short and go straight to the point.
On a Fuji X-Pro2 (that has a UHS-II slot) I got these performance from a buffer test:
There's clearly something wrong. I would expect at least the same performance of the v60, or if you really want to, +/- a couple of picture considering variance error if that's already the maximum the X-Pro2 can do, not half. It is supposed to be a superior SD (and it is priced like that at €200).
So I did a synthetic bench on PC using CrystalDisk and the random read and write (RND4K Q32T1 and Q1T1) the Lexar v60 outperform the Angelbird by almost 3 times.
So the question is: Are they just one of those other companies that basically boost their sequential read and write speed just to publish good numbers but perform equal or worst than others, or do I simply got a bad card?
Normally I would just ignore it, send it back and that's it. But I read basically only good things about them, so I would like to gather some opinion.
FWIW, I bought it from MPB, so yes, it was a used one, but from my experience, memory do work or not, that's not really something in between. It is not like they are degraded over time. Again, generally speaking.
Here it is a link to Imgur showing the benchmark comparison.

2023.03.22 18:01 s2201b Residence and Work Permits – Non-EU Citizens (EMPLOYMENT VISA with Foreign recognised education)

Forgive me, this is quite long.
I would really appreciate your help as I am stuck so bad. I have a foreign recognized education, but not a german education (degree). I am looking at this link: Has any of you applied with it, and was it successful? - (1) Is this the place to apply for qualified people with foreign education? (I want to work in an engineering related position, and have a bachelors in mech engg.) I do not want a blue card, but what is the difference between this and a blue card?
Since there is a delay in my full time contract from the company (im a working student now, and my student visa is ending in a month. i am an exchange student, so i am a student here but dont get a degree from here.) I had applied for a JOB SEEKER RESIDENCE PERMIT. I got a call from the KVR today and the person who handled my application said that since I do not have a German degree, I need to go back to my home country and apply for the job seeker visa from THERE, and not at Munich. He said this is only for the 18 month job seeker visa for students who got a german degree. (2) is that so? can people without a german degree not apply for a job seeker visa in Munich, or Germany?
I asked him "What if my full time contract arrives when I am in germany (before my visa expires next month). Then I will be in Germany and it is convenient for me to apply here since I already got the contract when I have a valid residence also. So can I apply for the work visa/residence permit for employment at Munich?" and he said, "NO, even then you would have to go back to your country and get a job visa". I assume that was a miscommunication, and I do not blame him, because I do not know German and he also couldn't speak good English. - (3) I just want to know now that with a JOB CONTRACT, can I apply for a WORK AND RESIDENCE PERMIT at MUNICH, and not having to go back to my country? (after the current visa expires in a month. that is what he suggested.)
(background: I have a bachelor in mechanical engineering degree. I am an exchange student in germany, so I was able to be a werkstudent during my exchange semesters. now my exchange course is over and the company has agreed to convert me full time.)

2023.03.22 18:01 Advanced_Falcon_2816 Rockstar Launches GTA+ Subscription Service With Member Exclusive Benefits But Is It Worth It?

Once upon a time, it was commonplace for online games to have subscription fees. The earliest popular graphical online games, including Ultima Online and EverQuest, all had recurring service fees, as did many games that came after, such as Final Fantasy XI and World of Warcraft.
That model has largely given way to the "freemium" model where the publishers give the game itself away for free, but much of the game's content is locked behind the choice of either extended play times "grinding" for materials, or the option of skipping that grind with a real-money payment.
However, some games have both, and that usually includes the longest-lived and most-successful ones. Sega's ten-year-on Phantasy Star Online 2 is free-to-play, but has extensive cash purchases and also has a "premium" subscription available. In Final Fantasy XIV and the venerable World of Warcraft, the subscription fee is still required despite the presence of a cash shop.
Grand Theft Auto Online has a lot of similarities to what we usually think of as qualities of "MMO" games. While it isn't "massively multiplayer" on a local scale—sessions normally include a maximum of 32 players—there are tens of thousands of players online at any given moment. It has named player characters with persistent progress and all of the other things we think of from MMO games: equipment, appearance customization, player housing, difficult multiplayer "raid" events, and so on.
With that context in mind, it probably shouldn't be a surprise that Rockstar is launching a subscription service for GTA Online. It's called GTA+, and it costs $6 a month. Ponying up for the premium subscription earns you a cool $500,000 in the in-game GTA$ currency every month and extra GTA$ on "Shark Cards," as well as exclusive benefits. Here's the list of benefits for the first month: The Principe Deveste Eight — along with a complimentary Hao’s Special Works upgrade for it before it is made available to purchase by the general public — plus the HSW Orange Trip and HSW CMYK Glitch Liveries. The Auto Shop located in La Mesa, introduces an assortment of gameplay updates from Los Santos Tuners. Current Auto Shop owners can relocate to La Mesa at no additional cost. Waived LS Car Meet Membership fees. Current LS Car Meet members with GTA+ will be reimbursed GTA$50,000 during this event period. Yacht owners can upgrade to the Aquarius Super Yacht at no additional cost. The Gussét Frog Tee and Broker Prolaps Basketball Top and Shorts automatically added to your wardrobe. The Conveyor Livery for the Mammoth Avenger, HVY APC, and TM-02 Khanjali. A selection of free paints and emblems for the Auto Shop. 3X GTA$ and RP on Hao’s Special Works Race Series. 2X Car Meet Rep on the Street Race Series. It would be easy to criticize Rockstar for this move because the company has already taken $60 of your money for the game. That's to say nothing of the grind-heavy nature of GTA Online that practically forces players to purchase Shark Cards for in-game currency if they want to make progress at any kind of reasonable rate. There's also the fact that the company is charging money for what is honestly an extremely minor update on the current-generation consoles.
In the interest of fairness, though, we'll note that many players who bought GTA V (including GTA Online) purchased it nearly a decade ago. Just like other major online games, GTA Online has seen years of additional content and improvements through continual updates, and that stuff does cost money to create.
deveste eight The Principe Deveste Eight, one of the rewards for subscribing this month.
If you own GTA V, you don't actually have to pay Rockstar anything to play it for the rest of eternity, so giving players an option to spend a little every month to support continued development is fair. However, the list of benefits, at least for the first month, is pretty weak.
There's another caveat, too: this program is only available to players on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles. We've asked Rockstar if GTA+ will be coming to the PC version, and will update this post if we get a response.

2023.03.22 18:01 H0neyV1xen "You don't have to be religious but as long you believe in Jesus & accept him as your god."😒

My brainwashed pentecostal mom accept the fact I'm irreligious but she told me this on as long I still believe in Jesus & accept him as my god or else I will go to hell regardless I'm good person or bad person. -_-
When I told her that the bible is a just religious text book and guess what her response? "Yes but the bible was and still never meant to be religious book. The bible is 100% pure truth as they are the words of God, Jesus exists because I had seem and heard him in my visions, prayers aren't bullshit, faith healing always work as your grandma been cured of lifelong asthma thanks to Jesus, and you don't understand the bible."🤡
I'm autistic woman in my mid 20s who knew better about the history of the bible while my mom in her mid 50s taken the damn bible too literally and treats her spirtiual visions(Jesus, angels, demons, etc) as 'Real' instead of just dreams, nightmares, and hallucinations.
Sadly my mom used to had critial thinking and skeptic until her religious visions and her religious nutjob best friend and the church group successfully brainwashed her.
Every damn days and nights, my mom going out to pray, read the bible, and another religious shit activities due to her religious fanatic bestie made her go and doing it. My mom is such a coward for not said 'No' to her religous fanatic friend because it's 'Rude', 'Uneducated', and 'Disrespectful'🙄
Christianity preys on the unintelligent, elderly, poor, weak, newbies, and mentally ill people.

2023.03.22 18:00 psyberbird Are extra minors/concentrations in university worth it as an Information Science major?

I am an Information Science major at Cornell University, where our Info Sci program is a relatively open-ended tech degree offering courses and concentrations in areas as varied as UI/UX to Data Science to Web Dev to Game Dev to Tech Law & Policy etc. My particular degree path is rather technical and most courses I am taking towards the major are CS classes or crosslisted with the CS department. My concentration is called Digital Culture and Production and I intend to fulfill it using stuff like a D3js data visualization course, the intro to computer graphics programming courses, and being a programmer for the game development courses. I’m interested in pursuing front-end web development work and was thinking to add a CS minor to my studies, as well as a UX Design second concentration, but I have several concerns:
Despite the quantity of actual CS courses I am taking towards my major already, a CS minor requires courses towards it to be taken under the “CS” dept label rather than “INFO” even when crosslisted, meaning that I have to stack several CS electives over my existing coursework. This produces a few stacked semesters if I try to stick with all the courses I want, especially for semesters with the notoriously difficult game development courses planned.
A number of courses in both areas do not interest me, but I would have to squeeze them in to fulfill the requirements. This is particularly true for CS where I would exhaust most CS electives of interest by taking them as INFO to count towards my major.
Lastly, I worry that a CS minor or especially a UX second concentration might have the opposite intended effect and make my major appear a lot less technical than it really is. Is that a real concern? Worried someone would see the minor and assume I took 6 CS courses total to fulfill it, instead of my major itself being the bulk of my CS studies.
As an added note, how would I even list all that out on a resume without it becoming a bit long winded? “Information Science, concentration in Digital Culture and Production, second concentration in UX Design, minors in Computer Science and Game Design” seems a bit wordy to me.

2023.03.22 18:00 autotldr ‘Don’t Say Gay’ lawmaker pleads guilty to COVID relief fraud

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 27%. (I'm a bot)
The former Florida lawmaker who sponsored the controversial law critics call "Don't Say Gay" pleaded guilty Tuesday to committing $150,000 in COVID-19 relief fraud.
Joseph Harding, a 35-year-old Republican, pleaded guilty in Gainesville federal court to wire fraud, money laundering, and making false statements in connection with COVID-19 relief fraud, according to court records.
Harding resigned from the Florida House in December, a day after federal prosecutors announced his indictment.
According to court documents, Harding made false statements to the Small Business Administration while applying for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan for one of his dormant business entities.
In COVID-19 relief funds, prosecutors said Harding conducted three monetary transactions, each involving more than $10,000 in fraudulently obtained funds: a transfer to his joint bank account, a payment to his credit card, and a transfer into a bank account of a third-party business entity.
The Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program is designed to provide economic relief to small businesses that are experiencing a temporary loss of revenue.

2023.03.22 18:00 LatriqueBalkanus My cheap Patriot deck to hit infinite

Since I got to CL 600 I got shit on by Thanos/Shuri decks. I'm CL 848 right now and got infinite today thanks, I think, to two cards, Patriot and Goose. Even a cheap Patriot deck can hold its ground decently against a Thanos-Lockjaw deck, but suffers against the standard Shuri decks. Here comes Goose. She can protect your Patriot from Enchantress (I know it's not a meta card, but it feels good to know your main win condition won't be shattered), but more importantly she's a pain in the ass for your opponent. The Brood + Goose on a location : 8 powers for 5 mana (and it probably will increase with Blue Marvel or Patriot). Goose and a couple of cheap cards that will be boosted later on : right now it might be better than Storm or Professor X because it's unusual, thus unexpected. It's a way to soft close a lane at a minor cost. Your opponent played Sunspot+Armor ? Tell them to fuck off that lane. Feel free to add Shang-Chi if you really want to make a statement to Shuri decks players.
If you lack some cards to make a top tier meta deck, I'd suggest you try to put a Goose in there, I think its a really underrated card. I'd like to add that I'm not a really good player, I made a lot of blunders on my way to infinite, so it should motivate you more than anything (if it's your goal to reach that point). That said, I think the biggest gap between players lays in the ability of Snapping. You should always snap early if you have your key cards in your hand or if a location favors you. The playerbase seems a bit conservative (the players won't risk four ou height cubes on a bluff) but won't bother risk two cubes to see how the game unfolds (which is not a bad mindset, but you have to take advantage of it: if you snap when you're statistically ahead, it should make you gain cubes at the end of the day). Don't be predictable, most of the meta decks are ; the Snap mecanic should help you climb in that regard. I hope my post will be helpful to some of you. I played Goose as a weird tech card, it might be a great counter to Shuri decks or a total disaster (I hope not), please don't curse me too much if this doesn't work for you, I'm not trying to mislead you into trying something awful. I'll join my cheap decklist in the comments, I can add a screenshot featuring my 848 CL and my infinite rank if you want a proof that it works somehow.

I think there is consensus that putting spend on your card helps you get out of pop up jail. My question is what kind of spend are we talking about? Like $500 every month or more like $2k-$5k?
I’m in pop up jail (applying for Gold) and I have the blue cash everyday and Platinum. I regularly put $1000 on blue everyday. Should I put that spend on my platinum instead since they are in the family of cards?

2023.03.22 17:59 cippy-cup CMV: Americans are held to a different standard when it comes to the pronunciation of non-English words and names.

In the interest of a somewhat-concise conversation, I am limiting this to criticism that occurs while in the US rather than when Americans travel to non-English speaking countries.
From my perspective, Americans are held to a different standard when it comes to the pronunciation of non-English words and names, particularly when it comes to cultures that they have little first-hand exposure to. I think the bulk of this criticism comes from born-and-raised Americans themselves, not necessarily immigrants or individuals visiting the US.
For instance, I have a few friends from Germany - German is their primary language, and they struggle quite a bit with the “th” sound. It is not a natural sound in their language, so the name “Beth” sounds more like “Bess”. It is understood that they are not used to the mouth shape required for the “th” sound, so it is not considered disrespectful to pronounce the name incorrectly.
As another example, I did Taekwondo for about a decade, and my name was mispronounced daily. The middle of my name is a sound that doesn’t really exist in Korean, so some people couldn't pronounce it. I am particular about my name (it is similar to another, slightly more common name and people often swap it out), but I never felt the need to criticize a pronunciation that was certainly well-intentioned and likely unavoidable.
In my experience, when Americans have similar struggles with certain sounds, that same grace isn’t given. It is seen as disrespectful or “classically American” to not take the time to learn, when it often seems to come down to unfamiliar sounds, tones, and mouth shapes. I think, to some degree, this expectation comes down to the melting-pot nature of the US, however that diversity is not necessarily homogenous throughout the country. It is difficult to learn the basics of a language and/or culture when you have little exposure to it.
To clarify a few things:
That being said, I think equal grace should be given in understanding that some sounds are unfamiliar to a person’s native tongue, and they may struggle to hear and implement the difference between correct and incorrect pronunciation.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences!

2023.03.22 17:59 shaquollayodale TD Fraud charge after card replaced.

(Apologies in advance if my storytelling isn't the best)
Basically, I had a fraud charge of $60 tagged under a delivery service that I have never put my card details into. I noticed it 3 days after and blocked my card for a week to see if I can handle the issue with the company itself. They said the transaction was not in their system so I called the bank if they could open an investigation and replace my card.
Went into the branch, got it replaced, and within 4 days after having the new card I get spammed with 5 new transactions totaling up to $600 flagged under the same delivery service. I have not once used my debit card or entered the details of it into anything within the 4 days, I was still using my credit card.
I went straight to the bank an hour after I saw the transactions and asked them to block the account and open an investigation. The thing is though, the teller ended up closing the account and an investigation wasn't open for 3 days until I called in to get an update.
I went into a different branch to see if I could get things handled but I could recognize that the teller was also very new and the manager wasn't even sure what to do at first. She tried telling me I should call in to open an investigation but I was like isn't that why I'm here?? Eventually, she ended up setting my account to deposit only and she opened an investigation. I called in a day after to make sure that a case was ACTUALLY open and it's been a few days since the whole ordeal.
This entire situation has had me stressed. I thought someone had taken my identity and I was checking login attempt history, changing passwords, scanning all my devices (even resetting them), and checking if anyone opened any new accounts but I was completely clear on my end. I find it odd that TD didn't immediately recognize the charges or notify me at any point. If anyone has any advice on the situation please let me know.
