2023.06.07 14:51 DanielP1107 Free Badminton Strength and injury prevention coaching!!

My name is Daniel and I have am looking to coach a few badminton players to help them be more athletic on the court. This training will also help prevent injury’s and help if you currently have nagging pains. The methods that I will be using to coach and train are from the Athletic Truth Group. Here is a video that explains the training principles.
I currently am part of their ATG for coaches program and I play badminton recreationally so I want to help out the badminton community.
Here is what I would be looking for from those i train.
You will need to have access to a gym or have at least some basic weights like dumbbells at home. You will also need to have the availability to train at least 3 days per week for 30-45 minutes. Along with that you would need to be willing to send me videos of your lifts so that I can provide you with feedback on your form and coaching cues. Sending in videos of your form is super important for online training.
I will provide you with the program with sets and reps and exercise selection and customize it to fit your needs and situation. If anyone has an interest in this free coaching and training I currently have a few spots available in my schedule. Please let me know and I would love to be able to help you out to become a more athletic badminton player and help with any injuries.
Finally here is an example of me doing this kind of training

[City of Roses] no. 27.2: “The first order of Business” – at This table – antique Punk bullshit – the Basics of Security

tends to crumble
“The first order of business,” says the man at the head of the table, “in any face time we take with potential occupancy partners, we need to assess how the anticipated anchor’s gonna impact their appraisal and availability approach.” It’s a long table, a slab of wood the color of pale flesh, polished to a striking gleam that’s broken here and there by a phone or a computer tablet laid before this person or that, until down at the very other end of it, a couple of comb-bound reports bristling with post-it flags, a spill of colorful diagrams, a worn redweld holding a couple of file folders upright, a small black notebook splayed open, the wispy scratch of a fountain pen, APPRAISAL written in ruddy black ink, AVAILABILITY , then three sharp underscores. “It’s not,” the man at the head of the table is saying, “that we anticipate an antagonism toward the anchor, on the part of any potential partners?” His flat grey suit’s a touch too big, the collar of his soft blue shirt’s undone, his sparse beard neatly trimmed. “But by anticipating,” he says, “their respective stances vis-à-vis their individualized brand engagement profiles which, let me assure you, we will be reviewing in a thorough manner before we, we take up any,” he’s trailing off, “tête-à-têtes,” blinking quizzically. The room about them’s walled in cool sheets of green-tinged glass on all four sides and more beyond refracting, reflecting, shimmering desk lamps and fluorescents, computer screens, heads popping up over cubicle walls, turning, following the figure swimming up through them, one glass door after another opening before her, “I,” says the man at the head of the table, “excuse me,” as the final glass door swings open, she’s sweeping into the room, Ysabel in her long white coat. “I tried to tell her,” someone’s saying, a receptionist maybe, bobbing in her wake, and “Do you mind,” says an older man, halfway down the table, a hand on his phone on the wood, but she’s glaring at the very other end of the table. “How dare you,” she says.
“Sorry, folks,” says Lymond, screwing the cap onto his fountain pen. “Think we might have the room a minute?”
“I, um,” says the man at the head of the table, “we just got started?”
“And we’ll get right back into it,” says Lymond. “I’m really looking forward to hearing more about this brand engagement. Now,” pushing back his chair, “if you don’t mind,” but already they’re filing out, shirts and blouses of dull green, milky blue, an intrepid puce, awkwardly around past Ysabel all in white. “Um,” says the man who’d been at the head of the table, in his flat grey suit.
“Thanks,” says Lymond, cheerfully. The green glass door swings shut. “How dare I?” he says, to Ysabel. “I’m the King. A certain latitude’s expected.”
“You could’ve gotten her killed,” says Ysabel.
“They’re watching, you know,” he says, tucking a report into the redweld. “Go on. Lean over the table. Slap me. That should be enough to undo all his sacrifice secured.”
She blinks at that, draws back. “Sacrifice,” she says.
“He thought of it as such,” says Lymond, stacking up those diagrams, tapping their edges against the wood. “Now. Slap me, or turn about, and go home.”
“Not until you explain yourself, brother.”
“Oh, Ys,” he says. “If you would play at this table,” he’s tucking the diagrams into a file folder, “you must pay attention.” A wince, as he sets the folder aside. “We find ourselves upon a crux: the duel between the Devil and the Huntsman redounded to our favor, yet the wound’s but freshly healed. Any sudden shift might tear it right back open.” His hands, folded together before him, a thumb pressed tight against a knuckle. “Is that what you would have?”
“I’ve seen the wound,” she says. “He nearly cut her through. The owr does what it can,” and she looks up from the tabletop to meet his eyes, one brown, one blue, both cold. “She sleeps. She’s been asleep since the Mason brought her home.” Leaning down now, both hands planted on the glossy wood. “I’m doing you a courtesy, by answering a question I assume you would eventually have asked?”
A bitter something of a smile. “How is Jo,” he says, “how Jo is, I know how is our Gallowglas: loyal, and effective. I trusted her to do what needed doing, and she went and got it done. Now,” over her sharp intake of breath, “I ask, once more. You know what is at stake. Do you mean to stand against any particular point of our plan?” Leaning in close. “Slap me,” he says. “Or go home.”
She steps back, she turns away. Before she can open the green glass door he says, “Take care, sister, where and when you might vent any further displeasures?” Looking down, at his folded hands. “Our tantrums are expensive.”
“You’ve no idea,” she says, “what could’ve spilled from her heart, had his stroke been a whit more true.”
She opens the door. He shifts his thumb. The thin line of a neat straight cut along the edge of his forefinger, sewn with tiny beads of dark red blood. He lifts it to his lips. “Um,” says someone, the man in the flat grey suit a touch too big, peering into the room. “Everything good?”
“Paper cut,” says Lymond, waving him in. “C’mon, let’s go. Take it from the top.”

Well and I don’t know, dim voices floating up through floorboards loosely laid across the joists, not what we discussed, poets and junkies, epic, like some, there’s a mirror, there’s no one in the mirror, there’s a crack in the glass of it jagged, chased and dappled, splotched with gold, a spangled haze, such a history, working together, that didn’t work, a drip-drip trickle from the faucet, puddles on gold-streaked marble about the sink, but there, it’s gonna be epic, dust gone dark to grey, to black, a lump of it mucked up under the mirror, with the shreds of a burst plastic baggie, this, or this, or this. There’s music, too, loud but languid, strummed guitars, a melodeon, but she’s sitting up in the dark, her head in her hands, and there is no mirror, no light, no sinks or water, no marble countertop, but there is the dust, spangled, glimmering in the milky cloud of her hair, and still the music.
“Well if we have to have a name,” says Gloria Monday.
“It’s something to put on a poster,” says the woman sitting on the nubbled pea-green couch, one hand braced on the curled handle of an orthopædic cane, a big brown scaley purse in her lap.
“Well if that’s all we want,” says Gloria, wrestling to one side a great stretched canvas, a twirling figure calligraphed in slashes of black, to reveal another propped behind it, the next wild scribble of dance. She steps back, behind a tiny silver camera atop a stolid tripod, stoops to peer through it. “We could call it the Lawn,” she says, snapping a picture. Straightening, she looks back and forth, from the painting, to the image of it, now on the enormous white-framed monitor behind her there on the worktable.
“As in get off the?” says the woman standing off to one side, her long black coat done up with brightly silver buttons, and a little grey snap-brim hat on her head.
“That’s not what we discussed,” says Anna in her houndstooth trousers, narrow black-rimmed glasses glaring in the light.
“The house,” says Gloria, taking hold of the canvas. “Run-down and falling apart and poets and junkies and twenty bedrooms to one bathroom and full of,” lifting, “epic,” hoisting it aside, “legend, and, and art,” to reveal the next. “The Lawn,” says Gloria Monday. Her feet are bare, laddered tights printed with overlapping gears, her vast white T-shirt says Robot Fightin’ Boots.
“I liked Weatherall’s,” says Anna. “If we’re going to change it.”
“Yeah, well,” says Gloria, stooping behind the camera again.
“Sounds like some Harry Potter shit,” says the woman in the long black coat.
“Jilting of,” says Gloria, snapping another picture. “Granny Weatherall? Been a while, since you been in high school?” The woman on the couch snorts up a laugh, sits up, hefting her cane. “How about,” she says, pointing the wide rubber foot of it out, toward the cavernous space beyond, “this building,” the boxes, equipment, the bulks of whatever it is under tarps shoved off to either side, stacked in the stalls that one by one march down the long high walls, “the history,” soaked in soft grey light depending from up under the rafters, the windows there scrubbed clean of filth, scraped clear of paint, “a name should honor that.”
“It was a warehouse for vegetables,” says Gloria.
“A farmers’ market,” says the woman on the couch, “built by Italian immigrants, working together. Cooperatively.”
“Snot Market,” says Gloria, “Grime Market, that didn’t work,” grabbing the next canvas, “Pus Market has a certain punch,” hauling it aside, “but Anna didn’t like any of those, and anyway it’s antique punk bullshit. Effluvial Plane I kinda liked, but that’s too, much, y’know?”
“How old are you?” says the woman all in black.
“Fuck you,” says Gloria. “That’s how old I am.”
“Gloria,” says Anna.
“No, fuck this,” snarls Gloria. “We got the space. We’re doing the thing. It’s gonna be epic. And you can either get on board, get your, people, involved,” the woman on the couch, clutching her purse, “you can write about it like you know what’s gonna happen,” the woman all in black, hands in her pockets, smirking, “or you can scramble to catch up after, like everyone else.”
“Ms. Thorpe, we must apologize,” says Anna, after a moment, but “No, no,” says the woman all in black, “tempers run hot and you let them out and that’s fine, and then you stop and you take a deep breath and you think. Maybe you do this, or maybe tomorrow you’re kicked out for squatting. You don’t – ”
“Hey, Anna!” says Gloria. “What’s the owner got to say, about us being here?”
“There are no objections,” says Anna, but Thorpe looks away, rolling her eyes. “I did my homework,” she says, lifting her little grey hat, “or I wouldn’t be here at all,” scratching her head, her dark hair short, swept back. “You’re Suzette Wilson, you’re Tom Wilson’s daughter, and I’m sorry for your loss, but the title to this pile is hardly as clear-cut as,” but Gloria’s saying, “This, this is my place,” as Thorpe says “that’s before we even get into the questions of insurance, and zoning, and inspections,” but Gloria’s shouting “S1! Last Thursday! The Teahouse! You think they waited around for fucking paperwork?”
Anna and the woman on the couch, watching them both, Gloria seething, Thorpe settling her hat on her head, “Well,” she’s saying, tucking her hands in the pockets of her coat, “S1 is street-legal now, yeah, and the Teahouse? That was in Sellwood? Long gone. And you have any idea how much the merchants on Alberta pay the city for extra cops?” A shrug, and that smirk warms to something more sympathetic. “You want to beg forgiveness instead of ask permission and I can respect that, but there’s this delicate balance. You gotta be big enough to get noticed, but you can’t be so big you get noticed, you know?” Looking out, over the cavernous space below. “And all this you want to do in a week.” Turning back, hands spread in a hapless shrug, a burble of sound, “I like you,” she says, “I do, I like the idea,” looking up. It sounds like someone’s singing up there.
Up there, up at the edge of the planks laid across the joists, up by the brief ladder bolted to the wall a couple of long bare legs kicked over and orange underpants, ee, ee-oh nor, the keening voice a grunt, doo da-da dee, doo da-da dee, down the ladder to the walkway up there, a wild mad cloud of white-gold hair, “and quickly was received, enthusiastically,” and Thorpe looks down, over at the paintings leaned, at the image on the enormous monitor. “Some say that it had more to do with her,” the singer’s making her way, hand on the railing, “improper sense of dress, than her talent, or her diligence,” opening a door up there, painted with letters that possibly once said Ranchers, or Gardeners, and closing it muffles her song. “I’m sorry,” says Anna, drawing back their attention. “It seems Marfisa forgot we were meeting this morning.”
“I’ve seen,” says Thorpe, “I’ve heard her, before.”
“Salt and Straw,” says the woman on the couch, but then, lifting a finger, “no, that’s the ice cream.”
“She kinda came with the place,” says Gloria. Up there a crash of water, flushing, that door opens, Marfisa’s stepping out, “Cartier Bresson!” she shouts. “Max Ernst, Paul Eluard, George Bataille,” as she’s making her way back along the wall above them. “Their misogyny really irritated her, but she wasn’t, she,” stopping, standing there, wavering a little, looking down at them. Absently scratching just beneath a breast, and sunlight flashing from the gold dust spangling her skin.
“I heard you play once,” says Thorpe, abruptly.
Her wide smile spreading, Marfisa tips back her white-gold head, “Lee, ee-oh nor!” she sings, reaching for the ladder. “Lee, ee-oh nor!” Climbing back up toward the makeshift floor above.
“Stone and Salt!” says the woman on the couch. “That was it.”

Ding the microwave, she opens the door of it, reaches in with a hot pad for a steaming pink mug that says Sophia & Dorothy & Blanche & Rose. In she dunks a purple octopus infuser, dandling its delicate chain a moment. Color blooms.
Out of the kitchen, across the living room, dark wood paneling, grey-green shag, shuff and snap of her slippers into a nook of a hall, too brightly lit. She nudges open a door left ajar, into a small dark room lit only by sunlight staining the edges of heavy curtains drawn, and almost entirely filled by a great wide bed. “I’ve brought tea,” she says, setting the mug on the nightstand in the corner. “Hey.” Sitting on the edge of the bed. “I called Reg,” she says, reaching along the margin of the thick dark comforter, and a gentle stroke for the blond head there, turned away. “Told him we’d need another week. He wasn’t happy, but hey. Fuck him.” Tucking a lock of her own hair, as blond, as straight, behind her ear. “Chrissie,” she says. “Chér.”
“I don’t want any tea.”
“Yeah, well,” says Ettie, and she gets to her feet with a sigh. “This would be why I stick with men. They can’t break your heart.”

The door swings open, for a moment all’s revealed, scarred floor and drifts of grit against the bar, peeling dimpled paint along the front of it and its cracked vinyl bumper, dust furring the bottles along the top shelf, the washed-out flyspecked neon lights, the bartender, spiky hair flared palely to a golden brown, hand up against the raw daylight, skinny arm festooned with shadowy tattoos, “Jacks?” says Jessie, blinking, but the light’s swallowed away as the door swings shut, and dimness closes about the warm neon, the sparkle of glass, the rattle of drums and a couple of jangled chords, bubbling bass, “Jackie?” says the bartender, his hair gone black. “Ah, naw. She ain’t here.”
“Oh,” says Jessie, in her puffy pink parka. “Sorry. I thought,” and she shakes her head, Americans were thus denied, someone’s singing, with the guitar and the drums, all right to travel to the other side. “She usually works mornings,” says Jessie. “Any idea when she’s in next?”
“No, see,” says the bartender, “I mean, she’s not here? Anymore?” Folding those skinny arms, leaning his elbows on the bar. “And we can’t be giving out people’s schedules, come on. Basic security.”
“I’m a friend,” says Jessie, and then, “I used to dance here? About a year, year and a half ago. Went by Rain?”
“If you’re a friend,” says the bartender, “I mean, she left, what, right after the holidays? Two, three months ago? So, I mean,” and he spreads his hands. “Want something to drink?”
“Where’d she go?” says Jessie.
“I don’t know, Eugene or something? But even if I did I couldn’t tell you, because, security, you know. Coffee? Anything?”
Betcha my life, there’d be no violence there, and she opens her mouth to speak but everything lights up again, washed out, as the door swings open, two women, raincoat, trench coat, gym bag and backpack, nodding to the bartender who waves hello as they head through empty tables past the empty little stage, toward the nondescript door back there. “How about Chilli,” says Jessie. “He back there?”
“He, naw, Chilli, we’re,” the bartender jumps as she walks away, “we’re under new management,” he calls after her, “so,” but there’s confusion by that nondescript door as it opens, those women stepping through around and past a man who’s stepping out, brown leather vest and rich red hair flopping from a widow’s peak, “I need you to,” the bartender’s saying. Jessie waves him off. “It’s Gaveston,” she says. “I know Gav.”
But Gaveston’s holding the door for someone else, a tall woman in a white track suit, short hair greenly yellow, and Jessie stops short, in the midst of the empty tables. “Chariot?” she says. The tall woman’s saying something to Gaveston, as she heads off past the little stage. “Iona?” says Jessie, and the tall woman looks over to see her there in pink. “Oh,” she says, stopped short. “Rain.”
“Is she here?” says Jessie. “The,” a cough, “the Princess? Uh, Queen? Ysabel?”
Iona’s shaking her head, “I’m merely here on her behalf,” she says, stepping away, but “Iona,” says Jessie, “Chariot, tell her, please,” and Iona stops, looks back. “Yes?” she says.
Jessie looks away. “Nothing,” she says. “Don’t tell her anything. Not even, that you saw me.”
“As you wish,” says Iona. Jessie’s still looking away, there among the empty tables. I’d want the giddy-up, the guitar jangles, I’d want to live it up, I’d want the pick-me-up, and the nondescript door back there’s now shut. The bartender isn’t behind the bar that flares, scoured once more by daylight as Iona opens the door outside. She steps through, the door swings shut, the darkness returns.

Nox Sea Raid say the letters punched in light across the screen. Choose Your Squad swooshes in below. A husky contralto says Set em up Sarge over the speakers, and the guy on the beanbag thumbs and clicks the controller in his lap, wheeling the view on the screen about a motley crew of centaurs, each stepping up to present arms as the focus settles fleetingly on them, uttering a catch-phrase, Rock an roll, rack em and pack em, they will fear my song, buzzbombs why’s it have to be buzzbombs, reportin for beauty! rock an rack em rock an pack em why’s it have to fear my rock an roll an reportin! “This is gonna suck,” says the guy on the beanbag, “I need more’n one tank for this.” Wrinkles about his eyes and gingery stubble along his jaw. “Whaddaya think,” he says, looking away from the screen, “would a Mixolydian,” but there’s nobody beside him, there’s a man headed away, over toward the grand dark staircase, dodging around a dark wood column, his sweater bulky, red, he’s looking up to the woman stopped there on the stairs, black trousers, a bowtie unclipped about her winged collar. “Long as he needs,” she’s saying, and “Oh,” says the guy on the beanbag, turning back to the screen, “Ellen’s home.” Clicking through the figures on the screen, rock an roll, reportin for beauty, they will fear, “The hell was he doing, wearing my shirt?” and the guy on the beanbag looks up again at that, the man in the red sweater a step or two up the stairs, and Ellen above him, maybe a shrug, “It looks better on him,” she’s saying, turning away. Why’s it have to be, says the centaur on the screen. Rack em!

Overall, I like the game but I would have assumed the 4th iteration of this game would be immune to such obviously broken facets. The game would be perfect if not for this trash.

2023.06.07 14:49 Derdly_Kerg Tips for how to deal with the wait (vent)

Hey everyone, sorry for the long post but I gotta get my thoughts out somewhere without worrying my family and friends for no reason haha.
I'm a 22 y/o male. A couple weeks ago I noticed that my right tonsil was absolutely massive while not hurting whatsoever, while the left one was normal. I got worried about it so I immediately scheduled an appointment with my regular doctor (she's wonderful). She checked it out and said that, while it is very large and strangely bulbous, she noticed no other malignant symptoms. And there was a small swollen lymph node under my left jaw but she said it was benign. She did mention that I should see an ENT if it didn't go down after 2 weeks.
Flash forward a week, and my left tonsil has started swelling a tiny bit. My doctor (who thankfully always takes me seriously) was still convinced it's an infection, as I don't smoke, drink and I've only been sexually active with a single partner for 2.5 years (chance of HPV low).
Now let's go to the week after that, my right jaw hurts and sometimes the pain goes to my right ear. My lymph nodes on the left side of my neck are absolutely swollen. My doctor schedules me an appointment with an ENT but it won't be until the 27th of June (AHHH). She also suggests we take some blood to test for Mono (Pfeiffer) and to check my CRP (A high value indicates infection). Today I got the results through my patient portal and I checked them out. My CRP is mad low (absolutely normal) but this means that there is most likely no infection.
I'm currently waiting on my doctor to call me to discuss the results of the blood test. But honestly, I'm really worried. I kept trying to tell myself it was just an infection and it would go away or shrink down, but it's been the same size for 4 weeks (that I know of, last dentist appointment was 8 months ago) and still doesn't hurt.
The fear of it being tonsil cancer really has gotten to me, usually I'm able to rationalise and control said fear well. But the symptoms have been staring me in the face for a couple weeks, and I'm mortified at the thought of it already spreading (as most people would be). On top of that, my bloodtest coming back basically infection negative is giving me the absolute creeps.
I know I do not have a proper diagnosis yet, and this is just my fears, but I didn't really know where else to place them. I do not mean to take away from those of you going through treatment or worse. You are all genuinly insane fighters, my mother is a colon cancer survivor (which doesn't help with my fear), and I figure you guys must be just as strong as her. So if any of you have any tips on how to deal with the wait until June 27th, I would love to hear it. Thank you for reading, I wish you all the very best <3

2023.06.07 14:47 Bubbly-Hugs Just an aggravation.

I’m 21 weeks along. And as I have posted before. I’m dealing with a complicated pregnancy trying to work and my husband works long hours to. I’ve been trying to find resources to help with preparing for the new baby. Our town has a pregnancy center but they have this learn2 earn program meaning you have to attend their classes before you can earn. Their help. Since my husband and I both are on crazy schedules neither can attend these classes. I would if I could I wish they had online classes that counted. Also other programs for pregnant women are for women who are not married, homeless or family less none of which I am. I’m so frustrated because it feels like just because I’m married and my husband works. We should be okay and have the things we need. we could use some help too. I have even reached out to all my friends from church and community and they seem to just blow me off. The stress is starting to get to my husband and I honestly don’t know what to do.

2023.06.07 14:47 ensaipanda AM and her obsession with grades

I’m really tired. I thought she’d be happy that I enrolled in the course that she wants (BS in Nursing) and that she’d let me be, but I guess I was too dumb or maybe I was still holding on to that hope that she’d be proud of me. But of course, classic AM will never acknowledge my efforts unless I bring in high grades and a shit ton of awards.
A few hours ago we got into the dreadful talk about grades. I got an 83 and an 85 in two of my major subjects, for me, it was already good enough considering how hard those subjects were. In fact, most of the class got around 70 up.
But no, she went on nagging me about how low those grades were. AM made it absolutely clear that I was so close to failing that I might not even be accepted into med school. I’m already trying so hard to get good grades even if I’m not that smart, what more do I have to do? I keep getting sick during exam weeks because I don’t know how to cope with the stress combined with the rigorous schedule and difficulty of the subjects. It’s gotten to the point where I don’t get periods anymore. But she doesn’t even care if I get sick. She keeps promising to take me to the doctor to have a check up but she never does.
I literally went home to have a break before summer class but now that she knows my grades, she demands that I study immediately. How tf am I supposed to understand anything I study when I’m so burnt out. She even blames the time I spend on my gadgets as the main reason why I got those grades.
I’m so tired of her antics. I’m honestly surprised that I got to live this long after all the manipulation and gaslighting she did for 19 years, all because she’s so fixated on using her child’s grades as bragging rights. If she wanted 90+ grades then maybe she should go to nursing school.

2023.06.07 14:43 artsypeasant04 6 interviews, an initial rejection, and a never-ending recruitment process.

A couple of months ago I (27F - Not in the US) was contacted by a recruiter from a recruitment agency for a job opportunity in my field of work. We talked on the phone for a few minutes, and we set up a Google meet call in order to discuss the job and how my skills match the job description etc. I don't know if it's worth noting but my work is quite niche, and I imagine it would be hard to find many candidates with experience in the field. Anyway, the call went great, we liked each other, so she requests a second video call on a later date to discuss things further. After this second videocall, she set me up with the company for an in-person meeting with the senior director (let's call her Jen) I would eventually be working under.
I took a day off from work because the company is located in another city, about an hour away. This interview went well too, there was an HR representative present, so I was a bit nervous, but I was hoping they couldn't tell. I absolutely want the job and I was trying to make a great impression. A week or so later, the recruiter calls me and tells me that they want me back for a second interview, and this time around, I would be meeting Jen, in addition to 2 of her superiors, both CEOs of 2 affiliated companies. Man did my back sweat that day! I took another day off (each time giving a different reason for the PTO to my manager). The interviews took so long but I felt like they all went really well and I left their premises feeling joyful and optimistic. I almost felt like I had it in the bag, but with a little pinch of doubt, you never know.
Up to this point, we're at a total of 4 interviews, 5 if we count the first phone call. A couple of weeks later, I get the much-awaited phone call from the initial recruiter. Bummer, it was bad news. She informed that the company went with another candidate, and that my salary expectations were a bit higher than average... Ok no big deal, (definitely a big deal, I cried when no one was looking). I thought to myself I'll just have to keep being miserable at my current job until I can land something better. I was feeling pretty down so I took two weeks off from my current job and went on vacation. While on vacation, I just couldn't let this go, I kept replaying the interviews in my head, wondering what I did wrong, and thinking of all the potential reasons for this rejection. I knew that the reasons they gave me were probably made up. I mean I get the process.
I decided to write them a gracious thank you email. I was inspired by a letter that Barbara Corcoran wrote to Shark Tank after being initially rejected. I think I saw it on her LinkedIn. Anyway, I drafted something similar in which I explained to them how I absolutely fell in love with their line of work and that I hoped I'd get another opportunity in the future etc. I sent the email to Jen and I CC'd the recruiting agency. Fast forward three weeks later, I was thrilled to get a call from the recruiter, she thanked me for the email, she said it was very kind of me and it definitely showed motivation yada yada. It turns out, they haven't recruited anyone else yet, and just like I suspected, the rejection reasons were bs. I was informed that Jen wanted to speak to me again, because she had doubts about my operational skills and wanted to talk to me about my field experience, and if I was comfortable working in a male dominated industry. This time, it was via Google Meet. Great, no need to drive all the way there but I still had to take a day off because the call was scheduled at 4pm. This videocall with Jen lasted exactly 10 minutes. The recruiter didn't lie when she said Jen had one thing to know. She literally had that one question only. I guess that's what was bugging her. I reassured her that I was more than capable of handling the job, going on business trips, meeting all kinds of people, and backed it all with experience. She finished the call saying "Great. To be continued". That was 14 days ago, and I still haven't heard back. So, we're at 6 interviews, more than 2 months of recruitment hell, and my anxiety is out the roof. I don't think I can handle a second "No" lol. However, the overall slowness and lack of transparency can really be demotivating. Red flags are flagging.
Sorry for the super long text, and thank you for reading, I just wanted to vent I guess.

2023.06.07 14:43 Titansguy12 Dick Cheney on Iraq

Ok so I recently posted about the Anthrax scare a week after 9/11. It’s gotten a lot of good response and conversation. A couple things I kinda knew but understand on a deeper level after making that post.
1.Dick Cheney, and by extension, most of the Bush administration wanted war and didn’t care about how the facts got laid it. Especially Cheney and his crook friends from his other appointments, who would strong arm CIA analysts who said there was no connect between Saddam and Bin Laden.
  1. There are many conspiracy theories worth diving into with this topic. All have valid points. But if we assume Bush was out of the loop and being fed false intelligence, and that Cheney and friends were war mongers we need to ask but one question: Why? Why did they hate Saddam, was his time as sec def highly influential, what made him the most powerful vice ever. So many questions, let’s hear the theories

2023.06.07 14:43 sunliu94 advice on me (21f) and my gf (21F) situation

this got deleted just now so here it is again.
me and my gf have been dating for almost 4 months. during the school year, we were both busy, especially her because she wanted to take her LSATS, which we both know is a huge deal. However, despite her busy schedule, we never had issues and still spent time tg nearly every day. we started long distance on May 22nd due to the summer ( i live about 3 hours from her). before LD, we have a convo and agreed to try it out, and that we would talk about any problems we had. we also discussed communication styles before and after LSAT and came to an agreement. For the past 3 weeks, LD hasnt been too bad, we texted everyday, facetimed every week, and nothing seemed to be going wrong. However, she did become a little more distant a few days prior to this event (i will get into it), still texted me everyday and not dry, just not as frequent. I called her on Sunday night to tell her ive been feeling this way, but that it was not something I wanted to make an issue bc i knew her LSAT was this week and i know she is stressed AF. We had a small talk, and when i asked her if she wanted to say anything, she hesitates, and says somehting along the lines of "i think i have something on my mind but it has to wait until after the LSAT." naturally, i freaked out a little. During our back and forth, here are the important details: 1) it is not a positive thing, 2) she wants to make sure the LSAT isnt messing with her, 3) it would require a long call, 4) she cant exactly put it to words. At that point, as an overthinker, I thought she was going to dump me. So i told her "if its what im thinking i would rather not get strung along." at the end, she said "you are not getting completely strung along..." and after that i kind of blanked out bc i just got so confused.
Im mostly just upset bc she spilled this information on me and then refused to talk about it. During the call, I asked her if she needed space this week to properly think, she said she didnt and that she would not mind me texting her still. however, I still thought it would be nice to give her at least a little space, so the day after the call, I gave her space the entire day, and at night i texted her how her day went, this is how the convo went:
me: "how was your day"
her: it was alright. how about you
me: honestly not too good, ive been worried about the convo from last night. but work went well.
her: thats nice.
Tell me if im being dramatic, but i thought her response was very cold. She never texts that dryly, and i know she knows that it was not a good response. My thinking is thats her way of putting her foot down and telling me she does not want to talk about it, however, I dont think me telling her the truth about my day was a bad thing, nor was i trying to get an info out of her. I just wanted to be vulnerable with her, plus i didnt want to LIE and say my day was great when I was a mess at work and at home. Its Wed now, and we still have about 2-3 days before she actually tells me whats going on. We did not text all day yesterday. At this point, Ive grew numb, and just told myself to prepare for the worst. But I wanted to know if i should still hold onto some hope.

2023.06.07 14:42 untitledshot Fatty liver reversed (-50 pounds)

In 2019, I was diagnosed with NAFLD with a fib0/1 (kp3.9).
I was 32, obese (BMI 38-39). Since August 2022, I have been on a quest to loose weight for good, after yoyo'ing for a bit, I was able to loose and sustained weight loss (went from 126 to 103kg, about 50 pound lost). That accounted for ~25cm of reduction of my waist line)
Having RUQ dull pain for 2-3 months, I was a bit worried about my liver, and got a bunch of exams done by my gastroentherologist. RUQ pain ended up being most likely musuloskeletal.
All exams came back good. With a really good news: I no longer have any fatty liver!
How I did it: Food change
  1. Low carb diet: Reduce all excess of sugary drinks, avoid pizza/pasta/potatoes (I still indulge myself once in a while) or other high carb food. My hepatologist recommended to reduce any food that starts with P, because many are high in carbs).
  2. Reduce any high processed food. If I need fast food, I priviledge the least high processed one like burritoes.
  3. Intermittent fasting: Typically 8/16. I do occasionally have small breaks from it, by I am respecting it 6/7 days a week.
  4. I try to use my bicycle way more (e.g. bringing kids to school, etc.) and actually stopping sugar made me more active, overall.

Imho, intermittent fasting + cutting carbs were the key to loose weight, as it reduced my binge eating.
In terms of weight loss:
The hardest for me was getting out of the sugar addiction to be honest. Fighting temptation + occasional headaches/dehydratation were annoying. I started drinking more watecoffee or occasionally got a protein shake, as I found it helped a lot with those. Now that I am out of this addiction, it's actually very hard for me to appreciate high sugar drinks, so thankful about it.
Hope this is useful and provide insights. Lmk if you have any question.

2023.06.07 14:39 juliana_san Help with stubborn weight management. Thyroid OK.

37F 5’10 250 lbs Hispanic
Wellbutrin SR 75TW for disordered eating
Hoping for some guidance to identify and know what to ask to treat some really unexpected and stubborn body fat gain.I've gained about 60 pounds in the last 3 1/2 years, this is the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I had my thyroid checked since my sister and father have hypothyroidism, so I was sure that was it.
My blood tests came back normal (slightly high cholesterol, slightly low iron). So while I didn’t get an answer, happy to see I’m in good health.
Now my weight has been up and down my entire life - I was obese as a child and have struggled mentally and physically with this since I was 9. I would say that it’s always been “easy” to gain and super difficult to lose or maintain. I have had periods of disordered weight management behavior though I have no official diagnosis.
In 2017 was my last period of restriction. It took about six months of heavy restriction to lose probably 20-25 pounds (I got down to 180). I was consuming between 1000-1200 kcal a day, and running 3-5 times a week.
I worked retail and lived in a major city. I would be walking several miles a day just by proxy of my life, and on my feet at work. This was not enough to maintain. Since then I’ve moved to the suburbs and work from home, which is when I think the major weight gain started. I was also in a serious depression so I wonder if that contributed.
I think what concerns me is how little I have to eat in order to lose fat. As I’ve gained over the past few years I have been doing everything in my power not to slip into those DE habits again. But it’s been difficult
.About a year ago I went plant-based / gut health focused for my diet. I am not counting calories but I am being cautious of portion sizes. I don’t snack a lot and while I’m not nearly as active as I used to be I am still trying to do 2 miles of walking every day (5 days a week at the least). I’m starting to incorporate strength training since April. So far, it’s slowed the gain but nothing seems to be working
.I’m thinking of asking my doctor for medical intervention at this point, I’m just not sure what to ask for. I don’t qualify to have insurance cover surgery, and I don’t think I want to go to that extreme but I am starting to feel a little desperate. This is something that impacts my mental and emotional health a lot which is why even though on paper I am healthy, I want to get down to something closer to average-sized.
THank you for reading

2023.06.07 14:39 ZealousidealPie8149 Not losing enough pre-op diet

My RNY is scheduled for June 22. I am on a 4 week 5 items of optifast diet with 1 approximately 400 calorie meal a day, for a total of 1200 calories a day.
First week I lost 3lb. Second week I lost 1lb. Nutritionist said it was fine and I was above the goal. I have no idea how that is true. I have my 3rd appointment today and i dont think I have lost anything this week.
I asked the first week what would make them cancel the surgery and she said they are looking for compliance. She wouldn’t give me many details.
I am also scared if I am not losing weight now even though i am following this pre-surgery diet that I am not going to lose weight post op.
I was a bit constipated and I took care of that yesterday but it still seemed like I hadn’t lost any weight, just maintaining.
I am not exercising as much as I should be but I am not inactive. I work 2, 12 hour shifts as a busy RN per week and I am raising my kids and doing household chores the rest of the week. The exercise I was doing (at their suggestion) was only 10 minutes 3x a week, so I don’t think that should make a huge difference.
I started the program at 236.4lb and weigh 232.4lb on their scale as of last week. I am 5’3” and 33yo F. My scale is slightly off from theirs.
Also- does anyone have recommendations for at home resistance training after surgery? The 3 kids make it really difficult to go to a gym so i prefer to work out at home even though I have not been doing it and I know I can’t right after surgery. But I know I need to do muscle strengthening as soon as I can to retain muscle mass. I have a squat machine but I don’t love it, I cant target my muscles correctly with it. I also have a few 8-12lb free weights. Are small weights enough to retain muscle mass? I’m willing to buy a total body work out machine if people have recommendations for ones that work well for beginners.

2023.06.07 14:39 kac_express Maintain Your AC and Extend Its Lifespan: The Key to Reliable Cooling

Maintain Your AC and Extend Its Lifespan: The Key to Reliable Cooling
Our dependable air conditioners turn into a lifesaver when the oppressive summer heat hits. They give us a cool, welcoming space that enables us to escape the sweltering weather outdoors. To guarantee optimal performance and a long lifespan, air conditioners need routine maintenance, just like any other device. You can enjoy dependable cooling for many years by maintaining your air conditioner. We will examine some important upkeep advice in this post to assist you in maintaining your AC and extending its life.
1. Clean or Replace Air Filters Regularly:
Your air conditioner's air filters are essential for preserving healthy indoor air quality and effective cooling. These filters can accumulate dust, grime, and other pollutants over time, limiting airflow and lowering the AC's effectiveness. Clean or change your air filters frequently to prevent this. For information on how frequently this should be done, consult the manufacturer's instructions. You can ensure appropriate airflow and avoid stress on the AC system by keeping the filters clean.
In the end, maintaining your air conditioner requires being proactive about its maintenance. You might be able to lengthen the lifespan of your AC unit by doing routine maintenance and cleaning. By changing filters and doing regular cleaning, you could even be able to stop issues from occurring in the first place. Of course, if your AC works to its maximum potential, you probably live a better quality of life!
Owners shouldn't wait until the annual tune-up to clean and replace the air filters, which are crucial to the health of an AC system. When filters clog, your air conditioner will have a difficult time doing its job. The unit may become overheated as a result of this additional load.
For some households, changing the filters three to four times a year is necessary. Families that reside in areas with a lot of dust, however, should have their filters changed more frequently. People who own pets or frequently use their air conditioners will also require frequent filter replacements.
2. Clear Obstructions Around the Outdoor Unit:
Your AC system's exterior unit needs enough airflow to operate properly. Make sure the unit is not blocked by anything, including furniture, plants, or clutter. On the outdoors coils, leaves, twigs, and other materials can assemble, obstructing heat transfer and lowering efficiency. Maintaining optimum airflow and avoiding any damage requires routine cleaning of the area around the unit and the removal of any debris.
3. Schedule Professional Maintenance:
Homeowners can perform some AC maintenance jobs, but it's also crucial to schedule professional repairs at least once a year. Your AC system will be carefully inspected and cleaned by a licensed HVAC expert, who will also look for any potential problems and ensure that it operates at peak efficiency. Regular expert maintenance can extend the life of your AC unit and help identify issues early, reducing the need for expensive repairs.
4. Keep the Coils Clean:
Your air conditioner's condenser and evaporator coils are essential to the cooling process. These coil's capacity to adequately collect and release heat can be diminished over time as a result of dirt and dust accumulation. To keep the coils operating effectively, clean them frequently. To carefully remove the trash, you can use a soft brush or a hoover. A professional technician should be consulted for more comprehensive cleaning.
5. Check and Maintain Proper Refrigerant Levels:
Your AC systems cooling mechanism depends on refrigerant. Low refrigerant levels can result in decreased cooling capacity and higher energy usage. Have a qualified technician inspect and maintain the correct refrigerant levels in your air conditioning system. If there is a leak, it needs to be fixed right away to stop future harm.
6. Clean and Insulate Air Ducts:
Your home's air ducts are essential for transporting cold air from your air conditioner to the various rooms. The ducts can become clogged with dust, debris, and other impurities over time, obstructing airflow and lowering indoor air quality. To ensure appropriate airflow and stop energy loss, regularly clean the air ducts and repair any leaks. Duct insulation done right can also aid with energy efficiency.
7. Use a Programmable Thermostat:
With a programmable thermostat, you can set various temperature settings by your schedule. With a programmable thermostat, you can change the temperature while you are gone, saving money on electricity and minimizing the strain on your air conditioner. Its longevity can finally be increased as a result.
8. Protect the Unit During Off-Seasons:
It is critical to safeguard your air conditioning unit during the off- seasons if you reside in a region with seasonal temperature variations. To protect it from the weather, wrap the outside unit in a waterproof cover or buy a specialized AC cover. By doing this, potential harm and debris buildup during periods when the AC is not in use.
9. Monitor and Address Unusual Noises or Odors:
Keep an eye out for any odd sounds or smells coming from your air conditioner. Strange noises like slamming, grinding, or screeching could be mechanical problems that require immediate attention.
Similar to unpleasant smells, system pollutants like mold or other toxins can be present. To stop additional damage, get in touch with a qualified expert if you detect any strange symptoms.

10. Practice Energy-Saving Habits:
Last but not least, developing energy-saving habits can increase the general effectiveness and longevity of your AC unit. This entails utilizing natural shade, drawing the drapes or blinds during the hottest portion of the day, and minimizing activities that produce heat. You can make sure your AC system functions smoothly and has a longer lifespan by reducing the load on it.
In conclusion, regular maintenance is essential to keeping your air conditioner's cooling system dependable and effective. You can improve the longevity of your AC unit by keeping up with maintenance advice including cleaning or replacing air filters, removing obstructions, scheduling a professional repair, and adopting energy-saving practices. Keep in mind that a properly maintained air conditioner not only reduces your energy costs but also guarantees your comfort throughout the warmest months of the year.

2023.06.07 14:38 ImmediateVolume2193 Did I ovulate?

Did I ovulate?
I’ve added my current chart and a second chart to show what my charts normally look like for reference.
So over the past year of charting I’ve made many positive lifestyle changes and I’m wondering if those changes have resulted in an early ovulation this month.
I used to ovulate on CD20 or beyond, but managed to get my ovulation to a routine CD18. This month is very odd though.
I had all of my normal ovulation symptoms from CD 8-11 with a little ovary pain on CD 9. I wish I had started temping as soon as my bleeding was over, but I’m used to having a while to wait for O so I’m never in a rush.
Ever since CD 12 I’ve had all of my normal luteal phase symptoms. Low CP, very dry, no arousal, etc. My PMDD is kicking in too. My temps are trending up, but they aren’t nearly as high as they usually are in my luteal phase.
I’ve been super active the last several weeks when I’m not normally very active. Could being active for a few weeks throw off your temps for an entire cycle?
Anyway, just looking for other’s opinions and experiences. If you think I ovulated, where would I put my CL?

2023.06.07 14:38 mispronouncedanyway A few beginner questions...

I (F 29) have just started cycling. Fairly new- I've done around 9 rides, starting with 5 km and working my way up to 18 km. I have a few beginner questions, that I'm hoping someone can address.
  1. Ever since my fourth ride or so, I have a bit of numbness/ tingling sensation from the elbow to the ring and pinky fingers of my left hand. Been trying to do a few nerve glides, and I feel like the sensation has reduced with subsequent rides, but it hasn't disappeared completely. Any idea what the cause is and what I can do?
  2. I haven't invested in the padded shorts (or any gear) yet, cause I wasn't sure whether I would stick to cycling. But, apart from the initial one-two day soreness, I'm quite comfortable on the bike seat, without any padding. I don't plan on doing rides longer than 90 mins–120 mins (probably twice-thrice a week). Do I need the padded shorts or can I make do with regular cycling shorts? Like is it harmful not to use the padding or is it only a comfort thing?
Sorry, if these are really basic questions, just want to get a few things out of the way before I continue.
Also any tips/ gear suggestions are most welcome. All I have is a helmet at the moment.
