2023.03.20 23:15 Mysterious_Bath Booking Prince Devitt (Finn Balor) Had He Not Gone to WWE - Part 2
Part 1 here if you haven't read. Chapter 3: A Fallen King After the shock events in the main event of Wrestle Kingdom 10, Omega has one thing on his mind, Devitt's IWGP Heavyweight Championship. During Fantastica Mania, Omega sets the challenge out to Devitt after winning a 6-man tag with the Young Bucks against Kazuchika Okada, Shinsuke Nakamura and Tomohiro Ishii. Omega is later announced as the number 1 contender to the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, with a match set for The New Beginning in Osaka. The New Beginning in Osaka: Kenny Omega def. King Devitt (c) to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship At The New Beginning in Osaka, Omega and Devitt wrestle for 33 minutes with Devitt LOSING TO OMEGA!! OMEGA HITS DEVITT WITH A ONE WINGED ANGEL AND TAKES THE IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP HOME WITH HIM! THE KING HAS BEEN DETHRONED! Devitt's first reign with the IWGP Heavyweight Championship ends at 221 days. New Japan Cup: Next for Devitt is the New Japan Cup, where in the first round he is placed against Hiroyoshi Tenzan, who he beats after a Bloody Sunday in a 12 minute bout. In the quarters, its a fierce confrontation against Bad Luck Fale, who he also beats. In the semis, its a wonderful performance from Hirooki Goto but its not enough to beat Devitt. And now, the finals of the New Japan Cup 2016 is Prince Devitt vs Tetsuya Naito and after 25 minutes Prince Devitt is SUCCESSFUL IN WINNING THE NEW JAPAN CUP, PINNING NAITO FOR THE 3 COUNT AFTER HITTING HIM WITH A BLOODY SUNDAY! When asked who he wants to face after his win, the answer is as clear as day. HE WANTS THE FUCKING OMEGA REMATCH AT INVASION ATTACK! Invasion Attack: Kenny Omega (c) def. Prince Devitt to retain the IWGP Heavyweight Championship At Invasion Attack, the Prince has the perfect opportunity to get rid of the Cleaner by embarrassing him and taking his belt away on his first defense. A 21 minute bout, Devitt finds himself on the losing end once again after a trifecta of V-Triggers and a One Winged Angel. Devitt lashes out after the loss, pushing away Taguchi who tried consoling his tag partner and storming away from the arena. Devitt disappears for a few months, until his return at Destruction in Tokyo, attacking Omega after a successful defense against Hiroshi Tanahashi. Devitt is painted red, later revealing its a symbol of the demons that were contained inside of him, but now? They're free. This sets up a match at King of Pro-Wrestling where if Devitt loses, he can't challenge for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship as long as Omega is in New Japan. King of Pro-Wrestling Kenny Omega (c) def. Prince Devitt to retain the IWGP Heavyweight Championship (As Devitt lost, he can no longer challenge for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship as long as Kenny Omega is in New Japan) Despite a killer contest between the two, with Devitt kicking out of multiple V-Triggers and Omega kicking out of the Bloody Sunday, ITS ADAM FUCKING COLE BAY BAY! Cole runs in and hits Devitt with the Florida Keys on the outside and rolling him back in the ring so Omega can finish Devitt off once and for all with the One Winged Angel, retaining his title and ensuring Devitt can no longer challenge for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship for as long as he's there. Chapter 4: Foreign Excursion Devitt has a clear goal in mind now after being restricted from obtaining the biggest prize he could have won. Or well, what he thought was the biggest as it turns out the man that fucked him over at King of Pro-Wrestling is the ROH World Champion. Devitt finds himself travelling across continents for his next pursuit. He invades Glory by Honor, attacking Cole after his 8-man tag match and demanding a ROH World Championship match. Cole tells Devitt this isn't Japan and if he wants the title match, he has to properly earn it. Devitt says he'll do it by any means necessary. This leads to Devitt's inclusion in a Survival of the Fittest qualifying match at the aforementioned PPV against Punishment Martinez. Survival of the Fittest: Prince Devitt def. Punishment Martinez to earn a spot in the Survival of the Fittest elimination match Devitt finds himself unlucky on paper in this encounter, coming up against one of the toughest men in ROH. It makes no difference to him however, as he beats Martinez with a Bloody Sunday to put him one step closer to that ROH World Championship. Prince Devitt def. Lio Rush, Bobby Fish, Jax Dane, Dalton Castle and The Punisher to win the Survival of the Fittest elimination match for the No.1 Contendership to the ROH World Championship Devitt runs riot over the members of the ROH roster, eliminating every single one of them with a Bloody Sunday in quickish fashion to earn the right to face Adam Cole for the ROH World Championship. Cole came out after the match, mockingly congratulating Devitt on his win. Devitt invites him to share the ring with him which Cole does. He then extends his hand out to Cole as a sign of respect. Cole surprisingly goes for it BUT WAIT... DEVITT HITS HIM WITH THE BLOODY SUNDAY! Devitt picks up the ROH Championship and raises it above his head as the fans chant Devitt's name. Road to Final Battle: Cole and Devitt meet in the ring on the last ROH show before Final Battle, where Cole decides to add a little twist to the mix. He calls for the match to be a No Holds Barred match to which Devitt is more than willing to participate in. The two reluctantly shake on it before butting heads with each other. Final Battle: Prince Devitt def. Adam Cole (c) to win the ROH World Championship Devitt's pursuit for gold since losing the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at the start of the year has been tough, but after 27 minutes in the ring with Adam Cole, Devitt can now consider himself the NEW RING OF HONOR WORLD CHAMPION! Devitt pinned Cole for the 3 count after hitting him with the same Diving Double Foot Stomp to the head that he put Anderson down with. Cole offers his hand out to Devitt after the match and Devitt accepts, showing a respect for each other. Devitt's celebration doesn't last long however, as a man who made his debut earlier in the night, Cody, came out to the ring, supposedly to challenge Devitt to a match. Cody completely avoids Devitt however and has his sights set on Cole. Cody grabs a mic and asks Cole for a match at the ROH 15th Anniversary Show. Cole accepts the match and the two shake on it. Cody pics up his mic again and says "Oh, and one more thing.." before HITTING DEVITT WITH A CROSS RHODES! Cole laughs as Cody reveals himself as the newest member of Bullet Club. Cole then tells Cody to pick up Devitt near the corner, allowing him to hit a Panama Sunrise. Road to WK11: On an episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling, Cole decides to invoke his rematch clause against Devitt, wishing for the match to occur at Wrestle Kingdom 11. Devitt initially declines his offer but after a video is played on the titantron of The Young Bucks beating up Taguchi, he has no choice but to accept it now it's personal. Wrestle Kingdom 11: Adam Cole def. Prince Devitt (c) to win the ROH World Championship Devitt's reign as ROH World Champion comes to a very premature end, losing the title in just over a month to the man he beat for the title at Final Battle. Cody screws Devitt in this match, hitting him with a Cross Rhodes on the outside and tossing him back in the ring before Cole added the final touch, hitting a Panama Sunrise to end the Prince's reign of Ring of Honor. Chapter 5: The End of the Prince Fantastica Mania: Prince Devitt, Rysuke Taguchi, Matt Sydal, Ricochet and Kyle O' Reilly def. Bullet Club (Kenny Omega, Adam Cole, Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson and Cody) Devitt, alongside Taguchi find themselves acquiring the services of Matt Sydal and Ricochet, as well as the No.1 Contender to Cole's ROH World Championship, Kyle O' Reilly. The match lasts 16 minutes and ends with Sydal picking up a pinfall victory over Nick Jackson after hitting him with a Shooting Star Press. After the match, Devitt decided to lay into Cody a bit more, hitting him with a Bloody Sunday and putting the offer out for a match at The New Beginning in Sapporo. Cody grabs the mic while grounded as the winning team exit and accepts Devitt's challenge, calling him a coward bastard. The New Beginning in Sapporo: Cody def. Prince Devitt Devitt's singles woes continues as he suffers another loss to Cody, who puts him away after a trifecta of Cross Rhodes. Cody adds insult to injury by injuring the shoulder of Balor by slamming it with a steel chair repeatedly. This causes Devitt to have to take time out, meaning he'll miss the G1 Climax and potentially big PPV's such as Dominion. King of Pro-Wrestling: Ryusuke Taguchi def. Cody (c) to win the IWGP US Championship After reaggravating his injury, causing him to spend a while longer on the shelf, Devitt made his return to New Japan at King of Pro-Wrestling, aiding Taguchi in defeating Cody to win the IWGP US Championship. Devitt then extends the offer to one more match at Global Wars, which Cody accepts, before getting hit with a Bloody Sunday Global Wars: Prince Devitt def. Cody Devitt finally avenges his loss at The New Beginning in Sapporo by beating Cody in this 17 minute match. Devitt successfully got the pinfall on Cody after a Reverse Bloody Sunday from the 2nd rope. Devitt decides to return the favour from Sapporo, injuring the shoulder of Cody with a steel chair before the Bullet Club come out to save Cody. Power Struggle: Prince Devitt def. Hangman Page Hangman Page decides to step up to the plate in order to avenge his fallen teammate by beating him at Power Struggle. 22 minutes later however and Hangman Page finds himself laid out on the mat after getting hit with a Bloody Sunday and pinned for a 3 count. Cody appears on the titantron and says he wants to finish this at Wrestle Kingdom 12, in the same way he finished AJ Styles off 2 years prior, in a Loser Leaves NJPW match. Devitt says one less member of the Bullet Club is a success for him and accepts the challenge without thinking about the potential consequences this may bring towards him. Wrestle Kingdom 12: Cody def. Prince Devitt in a Loser Leaves NJPW match Despite hitting 2 Bloody Sunday's in this spectacular encounter, Devitt finds himself coming up short in this 36 minute match, getting pinned for the 3 count after an out of this world Cross Rhodes from the second rope. After the match, Omega, the Bucks and Page come out, supposedly to send Devitt out of New Japan painfully. Surprisingly not, as Omega offers his hand out to Devitt as an ultimate sign of respect. Confetti begins spraying across the arena as Devitt is reduced to tears. Cody is against all of this and after Devitt, The Bucks and Page leave the ring, he HITS OMEGA WITH A CROSS RHODES! BULLET CLUB IS IMPLODING! The Bucks and Page run to the ring to confront Cody but NICK TURNS ON MATT, HITTING HIM WITH A SUPERKICK! While all this commotion occurs in the ring, Devitt watches from the rampway, smiling as he leaves New Japan with his main goal the past 4 years finally completed. Epilogue: Who knew that all it would take to destroy the Bullet Club would be a handshake? A 4-year rivalry which will go down in the history books, Devitt fought to the last 3 seconds, hoping that one day he'll find his own creation being destroyed. And while Bullet Club would eventually reunite, Devitt still managed to achieve part of his plan. Throughout this rivalry, he found himself butting heads with many members of Bullet Club, including Omega, Styles, Anderson and Gallows, Omega (again), The Bucks, Takahashi, Page, Cole and most importantly Cody. During that time, Devitt managed to pick up his fourth IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship, his first IWGP Heavyweight Championship, his first ROH World Championship as well as winning the 2016 New Japan Cup. Overall, wherever this version of Devitt goes to next, you can guarentee he'll tear the competition down.

2023.03.20 23:15 QuietlySmirking Having some trouble with a German ancestor and looking for help
Posted this over in germangenealogy
and I realized I forgot to crosspost it over here. Trying to do some research on an ancestor named Angela Mertens. FamilySearch Link.
Angela was from Borlinghausen and married a Joannes Henricus Mertens in Kleinenberg. Her marriage record says her father was Joseph Mertens, a farmer from Borlinghausen.
A while ago I tried to sort out all of the Mertens listed in Kleinenberg, and I was able to find a Joes Joseph whose second daughter Gertrud married Gregorius Mertens -- Angela's brother-in-law. The father was born in Kleinenberg, however, not Borlinghausen.
Honestly I think I have them all tangled wrong. Given that Mertens seems to be a fairly common name in the Paderborn area, I think I screwed up somewhere. Finding some info from Borlinghausen might be the key to helping untangle them.
I did find a possible birth record: https://data.matricula-online.eu/en/deutschland/paderborn/DE_EBAP_12110/KB002-01-T/?pg=80
This is from Willebadessen, which looks to be just north of Borlinghausen, but I'm not sure that would be the right diocese for the family. Also the father's name in the record - Joanne Bernardo - does not match the name given on Angela's wedding record.
Can anyone help me sort this out?
This is a transcription of Angela's marriage record: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1K0Hu1L2M7U_Wp4fnFwOrUk7xC0CwpoFP/view?usp=share_link
Here's the actual marriage record: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oAVD11tPplrLHBEdwE_ZtDCVz9fl9-A-/view?usp=share_link
Here's a transcription of Angela's death record: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wZCVoKtRO5iEDioWLBnFTxMcsvJgWeCx/view?usp=share_link
And here's the actual death record: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CcX9aLDyh3QW1F89MT2TQJ_BRdcYxafB/view?usp=share_link
Any help would be much appreciated. I feel like I screwed this whole line up.
I'm sorry...I missed out on a detail or two.
I focused my research on Kleinenberg because that's where her husband and descendants were from. I dug through the indexed records on FamilySearch for all the Mertens from that town and pieced them together like a big puzzle hoping to find what I could about her family. During this, I was able to put her together with supposed father and sister. But I couldn't find a birth record for Angela. Through all this, I had totally forgotten about the notes saying that she was from Borlinghausen.
So now I started digging for records from Borlinghausen and I'm questioning everything I put together before. Neither FS nor Ancestry have records for Borlinghausen, but I thought maybe I found it through Matricula (as mentioned in my post), but I'm not sure I have the right church book. Just like I found a record for AN Angela Mertens who fits the right time of birth, but not the right father. Unless he went by Joannes and Joseph.
Basically, I've got myself all screwed up in uncertainty and I don't know what to trust anymore.

2023.03.20 23:15 HerrSane Sri Lanka and it’s future —or lack thereof.
Probably going to get death threats for this but I want to know where y’all stand on this.
I don’t want to go into my background much but suffice it to say I know a thing or two about finance. So when I had a conversation here with a fellow redditor, I came away thinking people might actually have hope for Sri Lanka.
So let me come right out and smash those hopes so each and every one of you can get your realities in check (if they aren’t already).
Sri Lanka, like every other nation that was colonized and not white, came into the 21st century having had our economy, culture, and history ransacked by the whites.
Purely focusing on the economy, the war definitely did not help. And the Rajapakshas using the country as their personal piggy bank did not help either. However, all of these are red herrings to the real problem Sri Lanka faces.
We have yet to transition from an agrarian economy to an industrial one. This is necessary if we wish to go from being a developing nation to a developed nation. Therein lies the problem. How is Sri Lanka to do this?
The smaller younger nations that are doing well presently started their plans for transitioning some decades ago (like Taiwan). The early commitment to globalization has secured their place on that stage despite being awfully tiny compared to first world countries. But heck even this is not a full on guarantee.
By having missed out on any sensible decisions towards globalization, Sri Lanka has fallen off the gravy train. And now it’s too late to get back on it for the following reasons:
- Time. Time, and time. Unfortunately the world will not stay still while we get our shit together. It will take decades to develop an industry that can compete on a global scale. Even if we somehow manage to pull this off, see no. 2.
- Competition. Short of being the inventors of a crucial new technology, our industries will have competition on a global scale. Ask yourself this: if you were an electronics company that needs new chips, would you buy from Taiwan or from a previously unknown fabricator from Sri Lanka?
- Money. With the country struggling to find liquidity, feed its population, and pay off billions of dollars in debt, when can we have enough money to get started on globalization? Waiting then introduces us to problem no. 1. And the costs won’t be cheap as we’ll have to start from the very beginning. This includes everything from education to infrastructure development to marketing to R&D. Maybe we find foreign investors? (See no. 4)
- India. As an investor why would you pick Sri Lanka when India is right there where the labor is cheaper, plentiful, diverse, and popping with STEM degrees? Not to mention the strong and massive economy matched with a comparatively stable political environment?
- The politics. South Asia does not have the best track record of serving its people’s best interests. But there’s something rotten to the core here. It’s even present when I go to something as basic as the RMV where bribes flow like water. If it’s this bad at such a low level of government, what chances do we have at fixing corruption at the legislature level?
Sri Lanka will stay exactly where it is for the next decade purely due to the recovery from the current crisis. Afterwards we may grow a little bit further until we reach the agrarian limit. Anything from this point on will require a miracle AND for the ruling class to give a shit about the class they rule. Given how things are the former is more likely.
In conclusion, Sri Lanka will never again be able to get a Singaporean premier to say they wish to be like us because we’ll never get even close to them again in terms of prosperity. We will never have first world amenities or facilities, including education, healthcare and infrastructure, short of an economic miracle.
All this being said, you don’t have to feel upset because Sri Lanka won’t be a developed nation. I didn’t choose this country yet it is home and I intend to die here. But facts are more important than sentiment. I hope this breakdown knocks any rose tinted glasses you may have had on so you can decide your future as an individual and not a Sri Lankan.

2023.03.20 23:15 Save_my_grades Roommate doesn’t take out the garbage
So I’ve had a roommate for a hole year who rarely takes out the garbage, recycling etc. She’s being living here since last March and i and the landlord have noticed that she doesn’t do it. He’s told her to do it but she only does it when he tells her. He’s never home so it’s usually me who does it. It’s very obvious that I’m the only one doing it. It’s soo bad that the landlord has to print out rules. I’ve been living here for 3 years now and we’ve never had an issues with ppl taking out the trash. It’s almost the end of March and I can count how often she takes it out on one hand.
I need advice on whether or not i should tell myself or tell the landlord what I’ve noticed. Here is additional context:
Telling her myself - (1) very direct and I can tell her she doesn’t do it. If the landlord asks her, she can probably lie and say she does. (2) my tone can come off a little confrontational and this situation already frustrating enough. I also don’t know her and talk to her at all so I’m not sure how she’ll take it. I just don’t want any conflict
Telling the landlord - (1) usually what I do (this year, my goal is to be more assertive) but it’s not as efficient cuz she’ll eventually slack off. (2)there’s no conflict whatsoever which is ultimate goal. I just want things to be smooth and no conflict.
I want some advice

2023.03.20 23:14 ThrowRAForReallz Do I leave or persist? 18m and 19f
Hi guys I’m an 18m and I’m currently dating a 19f, we met on a dating app called POM. The app is used to connect people with similar music tastes and I went on there because I was bored and wanted to make some new friends. We are long distance.
We swiped right on each other and we started chatting. Since being in school all my partners have been able to reply relatively quickly, yet with her she took a while and I didn’t really mind it too much but after a while it started to bother me, it seemed like she didn’t care too much about me through her texts and it felt like she didn’t put any effort or time into me. So we kinda called it off as she couldn’t manage everything with the intent to pick it back up at a later time.
Some months pass and I still think about her daily when eventually I get the courage to text her again and we start chatting, everything is better this time around and I’ve started to learn more about her family dynamic. As I learn more and more I realise why she can’t text often, her parents aren’t really there for her and her siblings so she has to work and care for them. So now I feel like a dick for leaving. For these past couple months I have been giving her everything I can. Attention, effort, constant messages of encouragement and praise to support her and much more, I felt like things were good but when I started to ask to call as we are a long distance she seems flaky, calling off at the last second and stuff. I didn’t try think too much into it but it was hard not to when I’ve asked for the 7th time. Eventually we called for an hour or so, I was insanely nervous but I thought it went well, we laughed a lot and she blushed a ton, we were both really happy after the call and it felt like we clicked on call which reassured me.
I felt happy, yet I wanted to call again and once again it seemed extremely hard to get her to communicate with me, or to try organise a time for us to call. She wouldn’t be able to organise times to call with me but then would be able to go to parties with her friends and she claimed that they had been arranged for a longer period of time and so they take priority. One time when she was at a party I really needed her and she basically just didn’t do anything, she didn’t take time out for me or try and help me. Maybe I expect too much? We had quite a big discussion about it and she blamed her lack of communication on her mental health problems. So I just dropped my problems and tried to help her and ask if I could do anything. Yet Situations like this have been quite frequent with her disappearing or not putting any effort into me, no effort to call, or talk or ask questions. It hurts a lot especially when I’m trying so hard for her to open up to me, she has opened up a little bit but she claims it hurts her so I’m trying to be patient but some days she seems completely despondent and it impacts my mood. Maybe I should care less? Or be less needy? I’m not sure.
she says she is interested and will often times do small things in her own way. When I get hurt because she’s putting no effort, I ask and then she normally reveals some small acts of effort, or it’s met by a “sorry” and that’s it. She seems like she does care about me and she does do stuff for me she’s just not forthcoming with it? I’m not sure?
Basically I’ve been encouraged by my friends to leave but I think she can’t put as much effort into me as I am putting in her because she’s looking after her sisters, she’s coping with mental health issues and a whole bunch of other shit. I really wanna stay with her and support her but when she goes through the stages of no communication and she doesn’t seem to care about me at all it hurts a lot. I want it to work between us please if anyone has any advice for me please just say and I’d be happy to listen and grow to become a better partner to support her :)

2023.03.20 23:14 EntertainmentHour446 Trigger warning: transphobia?
I have a brother that wants to transition to a girl. Right now he lives a Hannah Montana style life. I want to start this by saying - I don’t hate trans people and would never write a hateful comment or be mean to someone that is transgender. That being said, why does no one talk about the grieving process for families. I know he’s not dead, but he may as well be because my brother is no longer here. He’s not the same person he once was, even though he claims to be.
My problem with the entire situation is that people put this idea into his head and encouraged it. They didn’t think about the consequences of (family opinions, hate, bullying, etc). I am insanely uncomfortable with this and I will never be comfortable with it. I don’t want to go anywhere in public with him and I honestly don’t even want to be around him. He torments my mom by sending her pictures of him dressed and wants to change his name. He has no empathy for them that their son is no longer there. This is also the only thing he wants to talk about so I’m afraid it is his entire personality at this point. And he looks nothing like a woman.
I now feel like an only child and can’t express my real feelings to anyone without sounding transphobic. I don’t hate trans people, but I don’t want one in my family.

2023.03.20 23:14 allybruh If you’re good looking and autistic, being good looking doesn’t really matter
Autism is one of the worst hands to be dealt with. You’re autistic and good looking? Sure you’ll get attention at first for your looks, but once you open your mouth people sense your not normal, so it’s over. I mean this obviously depends where on the spectrum you are, but it still applies if you’re high functioning.
Even if you’re good looking, you still can’t connect with people, you’re rarely someone first choice, you’re still misunderstood, you’re still called a fucking robot, and the list goes on. On top of that if you complain about your issues, nobody cares because they figure if you’re good looking you can’t have any issues.
This shit pisses me off. The worst part about it, is that you know being autistic isn’t your fault, so it’s kind of like you’re paying for a crime you didn’t even commit. Anyways, it’s one of the worst hands to be dealt, EVEN if you’re good looking. I swear, being good looking almost doesn’t even matter when you’re dealt this shitty hand. Does autism make you a victim? Yes it does, and I don’t wanna hear ppl tell me to get over myself.

I already partly know the answer to this; I was just hoping to hear some opinions and try and ascertain exactly HOW restrictive project choice is on future career opportunities.
I'm currently a Master's student in Biorganic Chemistry in my second year and I possess a joint undergraduate degree in Chemistry and Molecular Biology/Biochemistry. I've always been interested in synthetic organic chemistry, but with a particular interest in medicinal chem, hence the joint major during my undergrad. For reasons that I won't get into here for fear of diverging too far from the topic at hand, I did extremely poor in my first year. Thus, it was an uphill battle to recover my GPA. I did, in my view, an okay job at this recovery (though in retrospect I admittedly could've done more), graduating with a GPA ~3.0.
This hurt my prospects into getting into my first choice graduate programs which was already challenging as I was applying during COVID which saw less people graduate and therefore less positions available. I eventually settled on a bioorganic chemistry research group and was accepted into the Master's program. When I was looking at jobs in chemistry I noticed that there were a few synthetic jobs that required training in synthetic, medicinal, or Biorganic chemistry, so I thought this doesn't close the door for me trying to get a synthetic job in the future.
My project does involve some synthesis, though mostly as a means to an end. I'm not developing methods, but there are a few compounds I do need to synthesize for my work either because of cost or instability. My project primarily focuses on enzymatic substrate binding kinetics using things like stopped-flow, binding competition assays, some molecular dynamics, recombinant protein production, etc. Additionally another component is substrate scope of our enzyme of interest. Part of this includes biotransformations and characterizing the products that are turned over. This has academic interest of course, but some of these biotransformed products also represent useful chiral starting materials for other synthetic compounds of biological relevance. So with this substrate scope component there is characterization with NMR and other standard spectroscopic techniques.
Honestly, I vastly underestimated how important your project is to future career prospects. That's on me. Additionally, I had originally planned to do a Ph.D afterwards so I figured even if my Master's project isn't ideal for my tastes, I would have a second chance to do something more in the scope of what I wanted. However, I no longer want to do a Ph.D and now feel like I made a mistake not holding out longer for a project more in the scope of what I want to do in my future career.
Don't get me wrong, I like biochemistry and related bio stuff. But it was meant to complement my skills as a chemist,, not become the primary field I focus on, which it feels like the direction I'm heading. My free is that I am starting to box myself into a field I am less interested in and will struggle to get back.
So, just how important is project choice? How restrictive is it truly? Any input, advice, or general wisdom would be terrific. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

| || |
Does anyone have experience buying products from SFQ Pharma? I purchased some clomid recently and after waiting a month for it to arrive (from China), the product I received doesn't exactly match the advertised product. Before I take this, I wanted to reach out to the community and ask for some feedback. The photos that I've included depict the advertised product as well as the item I received. submitted by StarWars916 to moreplatesmoredates [link] [comments]
2023.03.20 23:13 Electronic_Teach1088 How long does it take until you start feeling normal again? 36(M) - 500+ Ferritin
My original chiropractor ran a full blood panel and noticed that my iron/ferritin levels were high. Told me to stay away from red meat, spinach, etc.
I then did a 23 and Me test and found that I have the C282Y and H63D variants.
My new chiropractor and primary care doctor both tested me for HH DNA Mutation and both came back positive for HH.
I had another blood panel ran in December that showed ferritin levels at 300. I then had another blood panel ran in March which showed my ferritin levels around 506. My primary care doctor wanted me to start phlebotomy therapy right away.
All my life I’ve experienced joint pain, exhaustion, fatigue for no reason, long muscle recovery after weight lifting. I have never donated blood in my life before finding out about this hereditary disease.
I successfully completed my first phlebotomy today. Felt refreshed after I got it done but have been feeling tired and sluggish throughout the day. I will be going back once a week for the next 3 weeks. Will test ferritin levels after the final week.
Based on your experience, how long does it take before symptoms go away and you start feeling normal again?
Thanks for your time.

2023.03.20 23:13 High_heartt First time temping - Unsure about true ovulation date
| || |
Hey all, this is my first time temping and I am unsure about my ovulation date. Flo predicts the March 11th, which would make sense based off the positive OPK test on the 10th. My sleep schedule is super erratic so I did use a BBT adjuster, but I read after adjusting that FF recommends against it. submitted by High_heartt to TFABChartStalkers [link] [comments]
Overall, I am feeling super frustrated because this is now the second cycle where I am pushing + CD 33 (last cycle was 36). Normally my cycles are 26 -29 days long. When I was 10 years younger, I was diagnosed with PCOS with confirmation from an Endo and ultrasounds showing pearls. I was using BC to manage PCOS but I have been off BC since July of 2022 (normal periods started right back up). Because of the PCOS and wanting to restore ovulation, I started Ovasitol 2 months ago (right around the time my period cycles got all wonky). I'm not sure if I should power through the weird, delayed ovulation dates and long cycles or just stop ovasitol since it seems to be doing more bad than good.
All that to say, can anyone give me some insight as to the true ovulation day? I am thinking it is CD 24, but temps indicate CD 25 (or possibly even CD 22?)
And does anyone have any recommendations on if I should continue ovasitol given how late I am ovulating? This can't be normal, can it? My obgyn shoed me away when all labs labs came back normal despite the diagnosis years ago for PCOS and my right ovary showing another string of pearls, so I feel left in the dark a little bit and just looking for friendly advice 😊
