2023.06.08 10:30 Meisterbratan69 Neo Egoist League: Final Rankings

This is based on Clampkages last video. I had a few thoughts about the whole thing that I wanna share with you real quick.
I'll be using Clampkages Ranking as a base for this post, although I don't agree with some of his predictions, but it's an interesting point of view nevertheless. His final NEL Ranking goes as follows:
  1. Isagi: 300 Million
  2. Barou: 250 - 275 Million
  3. Rin: 225 - 250 Million
  4. Bachira: 200+ Million
  5. Nagi: 150+ Million
  6. Shidou: 125 Million
  7. Kunigami: 100 Million
  8. Reo: 80 - 90 Million
  9. Aiku: 70+ Million
  10. Gagamaru: 60+ Million
Honorable Mentions:
Chigiri, Yukimiya, Kurona, Niko, Karasu
1. Barous and Nagis ranking
I often see Nagi and especially Barou really high in such rankings, because obviously they are at the very top of BL right now. A fact that is often overlooked when looked at this topic is that your NEL-Value doesn't increase at a steady rate. If players don't get better over time and manage to top their previous performances, their values won't increase.
Both Nagi and Barou got their rank by their outstanding performance in the last round, Nagi with his amazing Five Shot Revolver Fake Volley and Barou with his hat-trick. Fact is, if they don't manage to top this level or at least keep it up in this and next round, which would be challenging enough already, their values won't go up that much for the rest of the NEL. The Five Shot Revolver Fake Volley was deemed not recreatable by ego, and Barou must score another hat-trick this game to increase his value this far, which would be only possible if Ubers win against BM.
In my opinion, only one of them will get a significantly higher value, depending on who wins the Manshine vs. Ubers match, because it's very likely that either Barou or Nagi will be the Matchwinner. But even if they both somehow manage to evolve even beyond their current level, I highly doubt that their values would go higher than 200 Million from that.
2. Kaiser and Isagis ranking
Kaisers 300 Million has been the benchmark that's to overcome since the beginning of the NEL. Anyone in BL would basically need multiple supergoals in the next matches to reach that value. But I think it's likely Kaisers value will increase after the Ubers match due to his outstanding goal in chapter 220, making him untouchable for anyone we know that could get in reach. What I want to say with that is that it's possible that no one in BL will have a value higher or same as Kaiser, maybe they won't get near his level in the NEL arc at all.
We probably can all agree that Isagis value will increase both after the Ubers and the PXG game, the big question if it will be enough to come out on top of BL or even get on kaisers level. It's safe to say he will rank Top 5 or higher. He didn't get a really big moment until now, but he will propably get multiple big ones until the end of the NEL, he is the protagonist after all. If his value keeps growing at the current rate, he won't even be Top 10 at the end. In my opinion, this moment(s) will mainly be in the PXG game because it just makes more sense storywise and I still think that BM won't score another goal against Ubers. With only one really outstanding match, I don't see Isagi getting a ranking as high as 300 Million.
3. Kunigamis ranking
Kunigami is an interesting one. He was hyped up as the lone survivor of the Wildcard, the Noel Noah clone, Blue Locks dark horse. His performance until now didn't really live up to that, but his value increased steadily. I guess the clubs making these offers see the potential in him and his plays. Speaking of, this potential will show itself almost certainly in the PXG match after we see the wildcard flashback. Like stated, his potential is crazy high, so we're in for something that will boost his ranking significantly, maybe even a supergoal. Depending on how heavy the focus will be on him in the future, I can see him ending up in the Top 5 of BL.
4. Rin and Shidous ranking
The ranking of these two is even harder to predict as most others on this list, because they only played one full match up until now. If I got that right, they will play their third match against in the break between now and the BM match, which will be the fourth and last game for both teams. Rins and Shidous ranking after the Ubers game gave almost nothing away. They were both ranked pretty high for round 1 conditions, they both played simultaneously somehow, and Rin did overall better than Shidou. We still have no idea on how they managed to have them not killing each other on the field or the overall playstyle of PXG at all. u/MHWellington made a great post regarding this topic: link, feel free to read his post first, my theories are loosely based of this post.
I don't know if it's too much to assume they will surpass Isagis ranking after the BM/Ubers match already. Keep in mind that Isagis value will increase by a big amount after his goal. But I think it's safe to assume that they will be both over 50 Million after this match. They will definitely go for a hype moment with the next rankings like they did with Barou, the question is how big the moment will be, because they'll have to top it with the reveal after PXGs third match. A few theories on that:
  1. BM loses, Isagi made one goal but couldn't prove himself as the matchwinner. Barous value is still higher than his. Rin surpasses him and is the new number two of BL.
  2. BM wins, likely Isagi plays a big role in their victory. As he sees the new ranking he is now number two, Rin scored 2 or three goals and is now the new number one of BL.
  3. Both Rin and Shidou surpass either him or Barou, depending on who of them is ranked lower after this match.
  4. They both don't surpass Isagi but are ranked higher than him after round 2. Not much hype here, but in this case the tension until the results of PXGs third game will be much higher.
Now to the rankings after PXGs third match. Either Rin or Shidou are gonna be the new number one after this. It even could be that they're tied for first place. Depending on how high their ranking after round two is, it would be even possible that one of them gets the same value as kaiser, which would be crazy, but I don't want to rule it out.
Of course, their ranking will increase once more after the final match. I think Rin is a likely contender for BLs number one again. With Shidou it's a little bit trickier, because I see a good chance that he won't end up as 3rd or 2nd this time, but is he really gonna be number one. He would have to surpass Rin and possibly Isagi for this, so I'm not really sure.
Thank you if you have read this far. This is getting way too long, I think I'm going to make a follow-up post regarding my remaining points. Of course, these are all just my speculations and everything is highly debatable. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic, have a nice day :)

2023.06.08 10:24 RinkyDinka [UK] Put on PIP, requested reasonable adjustments, instead being made redundant

Hi, I had a PIP sprung on me by surprise in my annual appraisal.
The reasons for the PIP hadn't been shared with me previously, but taking them at face value seemed to be linked to ADHD, which was diagnosed with about 10 years ago.
I therefore asked for an OH referral before being placed on the PIP so my company had some insight into where I may need support in the form of adjustments. The OH referral took months, and adjustments still haven't been implemented.
This week however I've been told my role is being made redundant. This feels like a way to sidestep having to make adjustments, but realistically do I have any recourse?
Less than two years service, and I'm in England btw.

2023.06.08 10:17 PocketFMofficial Cathy betrayed Alex, but will she come back after knowing the truth that Alex is Millionaire? How will Alex heal his heart?

Cathy betrayed Alex, but will she come back after knowing the truth that Alex is Millionaire? How will Alex heal his heart?
Chapter 1
"Hello. Heavenly Lion Convenience," Alex Ambrose answered the store phone.
"I need a box of condoms and two packs of tissues delivered to room 1302 of the Sheraton South River Hotel. Hurry!" The caller hung up.
Alex shook his head. People never seemed to be prepared.
He packed the required items, put on a raincoat, and rode his electric bike toward the Sheraton Hotel on the southern side of the river.
It was nine o’clock in the evening and raining heavily, and his pants and shoes were soon wet and filthy. Luckily, the merchandise was still dry, but he didn't dare delay any longer, so he hurried toward the hotel.
When he arrived at room 1302, he knocked on the door, and it was opened quickly.
"Hello, here’s your—" Alex was stunned into silence.
The woman in front of him was none other than his girlfriend, Cathy!
She was dressed in a white robe, with her long, dark, wet hair draped over her shoulders. The scents of shower gel and shampoo assaulted his nose.
"Cathy? What are you doing here?" He stared at her in disbelief, still feeling dazed.
"What are you doing here?" Cathy asked. Her heart skipped a beat, and she took a small step back into the room. Her mind went blank and then started to spin.
"What's wrong?" Another guy walked up to the door, wearing a robe and slippers, and Alex immediately recognized him.
"You! You dare to touch my girl?" Alex couldn't suppress the anger welling up inside him, and he started moving toward Billy, determined to teach him a lesson.
"Stop!" Cathy stepped in front of Alex. After a brief burst of panic, she had managed to get back a bit of control. Since her boyfriend had already discovered her betrayal, there was no point in trying to hide it now.
She looked directly at him. "Alex, we need to break up."
"Break up?" Alex was stunned. He stared at Cathy with wide eyes. "Cathy, we've been together for more than a year. Are you going to break up with me now?"
"Yes. We need to go our separate ways." She kept steady eye contact with him and spoke with a strong sense of resentment. "Are you surprised? You have no money, Alex. You can only barely afford the cheapest essentials. We never have anything nice. As long as I’m with you, people will always be laughing at me, and that just isn't the life I want. I’m too good to be living in poverty like this. I was too naive when I was in my freshman year, and I let myself get tricked into being with a loser like you!"
She hugged Billy's arm and said to Alex, "Billy is my boyfriend now. From now on, I want nothing to do with you. Don't bother me again!"
"Well, seems like you’re just her good-for-nothing ex now!" Billy looked at Alex with a provocative smirk.
Alex, standing there in a raincoat and with mud stains on his pants and shoes, felt like Cathy was right. He was a complete loser. Billy took the plastic bag from his hand and took out the box of condoms. He waved it at Alex and laughed as he said, "I’m staying in a nice hotel, having my girlfriend’s ex bring me condoms. And you’re single. Sure was good of you to help me out."
"Why are you still here?" Cathy scolded Alex.
"Nah, it's good that he didn't piss off. Maybe you want to see me beat him down, huh, Cathy? Gotta give a lady what she wants," Billy sneered.
Alex felt utterly defeated. He slowly turned around and walked out of the room.
"Bro, you're not even taking the money? Heh, nice. I get a girlfriend and a gift." Billy felt great watching Alex's slumped, dejected posture as he closed the door behind him.
When Alex left the hotel, it was raining even harder than before. He took off his raincoat, allowing the cold rain to drench his entire body and help clear his head.
Cathy had discarded him because she believed he had no money. Losing such a materialistic woman should be something to rejoice over, so why should he be sad?
[Buzz buzz!]
His phone vibrated in his pocket. Alex took it out and glanced at it, but when he saw the number, he stopped walking. His entire body was shaking as he read the text.
[After a review, the Ambrose family has decided that their son, Alexander, has met the conditions required for entitlement to his inheritance. From today onward, control of his property will be returned to him.]
The bean-sized raindrops plopped onto the screen, causing the text message to gradually become blurry.
Alex's mind began to spin. If not for this message, Alex would have almost forgotten his identity as a super-rich kid. Over the last seven years, his family had been assessing him, withholding his fortune until they were satisfied he met their draconian conditions. And now, finally, it was over.
Everything that rightfully belonged to him was finally his to claim.
Alex woke up early the next morning and drove to the city. In a great mood, he got out of his car and went straight to Metro Sky Bank, right in the heart of the wealthiest part of the central business district of New York.
Various luxury cars were parked around the bank. The people walking in and out of the surrounding plaza were all rich; it was obvious from their clothing and demeanour.
Alex strode to the door of the bank and pushed it open.
The main door could be opened both inward and outward, and Alex had been a bit careless when he pushed it open from outside. As a result, the door had bumped into a long-haired young woman who had been heading out of the building.
He quickly apologized, "Sorry. I didn't see you."
"What do you mean, you didn’t see me? What am I, invisible?" She held a hand to her forehead and glared at him.
The bank’s assistant manager, Karen Young, had noticed the incident and hurried over. She checked on the woman first, and then looked at Alex in disapproval. When her gaze swept over him, a trace of suspicion appeared on her face.
Metro Sky Bank was different from most banks, as the clientele were almost exclusively high-end businesspeople. Karen knew the young woman was there with her father, but she didn't know why Alex was there. Judging from his appearance and age, he wasn't their usual type of customer.
"Sir, can I be of assistance?" she asked with a polite but forced smile.
Alex simply said, "I’m here to withdraw money."
"Withdraw money?" the sullen woman asked, sneering at him.
"Do you have a card?" Karen asked, continuing to smile politely.
Getting a Metro Sky Bankcard was not easy. A million dollars of savings was the minimum requirement to qualify. Karen felt certain that the man in front of her couldn't have much experience with the bank and wouldn't know their rules. Perhaps he had thought that other banks' cards could also be used here.
"No," Alex replied, shaking his head.
The woman he had accidentally hit with the door couldn't help but giggle when she heard his honest reply. He wasn't worth any more of her attention.
"Let’s go." Her father had walked up, still arranging the documents he was carrying.
"My dad and I are leaving." The woman shook Karen's hand, and then looked over at Alex. "Ms Young, having someone like this around could damage your bank's image and upset your customers. I hope this will not happen again."
With that, she took her father’s arm and opened the door.
"Take care, Mr Scott." Karen followed them out a few steps, watching as they got into a car and left. Turning around, she headed back inside, having made up her mind to encourage Alex to leave as soon as possible.
There was no one standing where Alex had been. Oh! Where’s he gone? she wondered.
Was it possible that the kid had been embarrassed and had quietly slipped away?
She felt relieved at the thought. Then, just as she was about to go back to work, she caught a glimpse of someone out of the corner of her eye.
There’s the brat! No wonder I didn’t see him at first, she thought. He had already reached the entrance to the VIP lounge, and a pillar had blocked her view of him.
The VIP room was only for high-status customers who were worth at least thirty million dollars, and this young man had admitted that he didn’t even have a card. If she let him get through, she would be in trouble with her boss.
"Stop! Don't move!" Karen yelled, feeling desperate. The other customers all looked around at her, obviously annoyed by her shouting. She could only smile apologetically as she walked quickly toward Alex.
But he had already walked through the lounge, opened the door to the VIP room, and stepped inside.
Chapter 2
Does he have no shame? Karen hurried after Alex with a look of chagrin on her face. She tried to open the door to the VIP room, but it had been locked from the inside.
"Hello?" Inside the VIP room, Robert Miller, the bank manager, was leaning against the sofa, looking at his phone. When the door suddenly opened, he quickly sat down and hid his phone away. Normally, when a VIP was coming in, Karen would notify him in advance.
As the customer manager, he was responsible for thirty-one VIPs, and he knew them like the back of his hand. He immediately began to launch into his normal professional greeting, hoping to undo the poor impression he’d made by slouching against the sofa, but when he saw Alex, his expression froze.
He was certain that Alex was not one of his VIPs, nor was he a relative of one.
"May I ask who you are?" Robert asked, looking at the young man, who appeared to be around twenty years old. Robert had no idea who he was.
Alex got straight to the point. "I'm here to get my money."
"You have one of our cards?" Robert asked, suspicious of Alex's calm expression.
"No," Alex admitted frankly.
Robert was relieved to seemingly be proven right, but even more confused. Access to the VIP room required a minimum worth of three million dollars, but this man didn't have any money. Why was he so composed?
"I'm sorry, sir. We can't give out money without a card. Do you require anything else?"
He's crazy, Robert thought. Why on earth did Karen let him in? I’ll have to speak to her about this at Monday’s meeting.
"You have fingerprint recognition here, right?" Alex suddenly asked.
The fingerprint ID system at the bank was for the wealthiest families and businesses to use. Only a few people had their fingerprints recorded in the system, at least in the New York branch, and no one had used it to access their holdings yet.
"You want to use it?" Robert could no longer bring himself to call Alex "sir."
"Yes." Alex nodded.
Robert was feeling more confused by the second. Why would someone who wasn't even a customer request to use a fingerprint ID?
To be honest, even though he was curious, Robert felt that it was barely worth humouring the request. But after considering for a few seconds, he finally decided to let Alex make the attempt rather than risk making him angry.
He opened the safe and brought out the fingerprint identification device, which he had never used before.
"Place your thumb here." Robert indicated the verification area to Alex, who placed his thumb on the sensor.
The device lit up with a glaring red light, and the LCD screen displayed the words [Fingerprint not recorded].
Immediately, Robert’s expression turned hostile, and he glared at Alex. He picked up his phone, ready to call the police.
"Wait, wait!" Alex said quickly. "Maybe that was the wrong print. I'll try using my index finger this time."
Robert smiled coldly. "What’s your plan here? Your thumb doesn’t work, so you’ll try your index finger. Then, if your index finger doesn’t work, you’ll try your middle finger. When you run out of fingers, will you try using your toes?"
But Alex had already pressed his index finger on the verification area.
Robert resolved that if the man’s fingerprints weren’t accepted this time, he would immediately call the police and have him arrested.
[Beep!] A green light appeared on the device and new details flashed up on the LCD screen: [Verification successful. Family account: 01. Verifier: Alexander Ambrose. Account: 01104.]
Robert gaped at Alex in disbelief for a moment, and then hurriedly squeezed out a smile. "Mr Ambrose, I'm sorry. I didn't realize. I'm Robert Miller, the customer manager for the New York branch. Please allow me to assist you."
"It's fine," Alex said lightly and stood up. "Can I see how much money I have left in my account?"
"Please wait a moment." Robert sat in front of the computer and typed away for a while. On his instructions, Alex provided a few more fingerprint scans as authorization.
"It's done, Mr Ambrose." Robert clicked the "OK" button on the screen, and Alex's account appeared.
Robert pointed to the computer screen and said, "Mr Ambrose, the balance of your account is currently eighty-six million dollars."
Robert couldn't help but suck in a breath of cold air.
This young man had an enormous fortune. It placed him in the topflight of the one per cent. Most people would never be able to even dream of that much money.
Alex felt strange as he stared at the numbers on the screen. He reminded himself that he needed to get used to his status as a rich kid as soon as possible.
"Oh, and you have other assets as well. Let me show you now." Robert clicked through to check several pages in a row. Finally, he clicked the "OK" button again.
The computer brought up a 4 x 4 grid of display screens.
"This surveillance screen displays all the physical assets that you hold elsewhere," Robert explained. He clicked on the upper left corner of the screen and brought up the feed from the bank's branch at The Hague, which revealed a sports car. In the lower right corner, it said, [Ferrari Pagani Huayra].
Robert opened up other screens for Alex, one after another.
The Hawaii branch displayed a Dominica blue pearl bracelet and four stacks of gold bars.
The feed from the French branch in Nice revealed three original Picasso paintings and two Rodin statues.
And the Cape Town branch had fifteen 10-carat diamonds, ten pieces of ivory, and another couple of stacks of gold bars. Robert's eyes almost popped out as he looked at Alex's assets. He had never seen anyone so rich. Maybe not even one-tenth as rich.
"All right, I’d like a card," Alex said before Robert could collect his thoughts.
"Yes, I will see to it right away. Please wait a moment." Robert immediately started to make the necessary arrangements. Within ten minutes, a Supreme Card was produced.
Robert looked at the Supreme Card and thought about Alex's assets. This card wasn’t good enough for Alex’s status, but it was the highest grade of card they were authorized to issue at the New York branch.
Robert presented handed the card over. "Mr Ambrose, your card."
"Thank you." Alex took the card, stood up, and went to walk out of the room.
"Mr Ambrose, please wait." Robert didn't dare to appear to be neglecting such an important customer. He should see him out personally, but the asset checking system on his computer had not been turned off yet, and the fingerprint verification machine, iris recognition apparatus, and other sensitive equipment had not been returned to the safe. The monitoring system in the VIP room was connected to the district manager’s office.
Karen was anxiously waiting in the hall. What's been going on in there for so long? she wondered. Could that brat have murdered Mr Miller in the VIP room?
The more she considered it, the more scared she became. She was on the verge of banging on the door and demanding a response when Alex walked confidently out of the room.
"Stop!" Karen shouted. She walked quickly over toward him and grabbed at his coat. "You can't leave. You broke into the VIP room. Once we confirm that nothing is missing, I will call the police and have them hold you for questioning."
"What are you talking about?" Alex asked. "Let go!"
Karen grappled with him for a while, but she couldn't manage to search his pockets.
What’s wrong with this woman? Alex thought. He wasn’t even arguing with her, but she was manhandling him.
"What is this?" Karen spotted the Supreme Card that was peeking out of Alex's pocket. She quickly pulled it out and looked at him triumphantly, as if she had found evidence of his guilt. "Oh, you stole a card. This is a crime, and I have to call the police."
It didn't even cross her mind that the card could belong to Alex. She imagined he had entered the VIP room, pretending to be there by mistake, and had then distracted Mr Miller with questions and stolen the card when the manager wasn't paying attention.
"Let go!" Alex was sick of this woman.
"Don’t you feel guilty about being a thief?" She was even more determined.
With the two of them creating such a scene, other customers started to walk over toward them, intending to help Karen keep Alex from getting away.
Just then, Robert, who had finished tidying up, strode out of the VIP room.
Having seen Alex's assets, Robert now knew he was the most important customer the New York branch of the bank had ever had. He had also noticed that the system listed Alex's was listed as just one of multiple accounts attached to a family group, labelled 01. If that single account was so lucrative, then what about the rest of the family?
It was rare to meet such important people, so Robert knew he had to be careful to curry favour with Alex. If they got along well, it would be a tremendous success for Robert, and the potential benefits were huge.
So, when saw Karen struggling with Alex, he was enraged. Karen's expression was hostile, and Alex was becoming very angry. Karen was an idiot who was playing with fire, and she might drag Robert himself down with her.
Of all the bank’s many, many customers, why did she need to pick this one to try and remove? A simple flick of Alex’s finger could be enough to end both their careers.
Chapter 3
"Stop!" Robert dashed between Alex and Karen.
Before Alex could speak, Karen waved the Supreme Card in the air. Her eyes flashed with triumph as she said to Robert, "Mr Miller, look! He stole a card from the VIP room!" She smiled at him, her expression a little smug.
Surely, Mr Miller would be happy with her for preventing theft. He had a lot of authority in the eastern district of Metro Sky Bank, and when he had arrived at headquarters, he had seemed impressed with her, so she was hoping for a promotion. Her imagination began to run away with her as she dreamed about her possible future.
Mr Miller's face had always been a little glum, but as she watched, his expression grew darker and darker. Before she could figure out why, she was startled by his explosive roar, leaving her entire body trembling.
"Let go of Mr Ambrose!" As he yelled, Mr Miller knocked the Supreme Card out of her hand, and she was so scared that she let go of Alex. Mr Miller pushed her aside and bent down to pick up the card. "Mr Ambrose, your card. I'm very sorry. I haven't trained Ms Young properly. I do apologize."
Mr Miller's expression showed a mixture of respect, embarrassment, and unease, as the bank's customers looked on in amazement. Karen was stunned.
Could the Supreme Card be his? she wondered.
Her eyes widened. No matter how hard she tried, she couldn't make sense of it.
If this man had a Supreme Card, then he had at least three million dollars, yet he appeared to only be around twenty years old. A poor, lower-class loser with that much money? No, it was just too unlikely.
"It's not your fault, Mr Miller," Alex assured him, slipping the card back into his pocket.
"Thank you, Mr Ambrose." Robert dipped his head and paused briefly before straightening up and shouting at Karen, "Why are you just standing there? Apologize to Mr Ambrose immediately!"
How could Karen still not understand? Robert thought. The young man standing in front of them was seriously rich and needed to be treated with respect.
Karen immediately bowed her head at Alex. "Mr Ambrose, I'm very sorry for my rude behaviour. I made a mistake, created a fuss over nothing, and put my hands on you. It was my fault, and I will reflect on my behaviour—"
Alex ignored her and walked away.
"Mr Ambrose," Robert called after him. "If you ever need anything, just give me a call, and I'll do my best to help."
Robert was excited by this opportunity. It was rare to meet someone as important as Alex, so he shamelessly tried to charm him.
"Okay, Robert." Alex smiled faintly. Robert had come to his defence, after all.
The use of his first name made Robert feel quite emotional. The wealthiest customers called him by his first name, and now so did this poorly dressed young man, who displayed not even a hint of arrogance.
Alex strode out of the bank and hailed a taxi to take him back to Preston University.
As Alex entered the university building, he accidentally stepped into a puddle, splashing a lot of mud on his legs.
He checked his watch then rushed toward the classroom, where Mr Morgan was already standing at the podium, lecturing. He spotted Alex out of the corner of his eye and a hint of disappointment flashed across his face.
Feeling guilty, Alex lowered his head.
Of all his teachers, Mr Morgan was his favourite. The other teachers tended to ignore Alex because he had no money, and some even openly mocked him. Only Mr Morgan treated him like any other student.
Alex slipped quietly into the classroom, aware that all the students were staring at him, and he could hear them whispering.
"He isn't usually late. Hell must have frozen over."
"Look at his pants! They’re filthy. Doesn’t he have any clean clothes?"
"Are you joking? It’s not like he’d have the money for new ones. It looks like he's just thrown on whatever he could find."
Some of the boys continued to talk, and the girls in the front row covered their mouths with their hands as they joined in. Their eyes flashed with contempt when they looked at Alex.
"Stop talking!" Mr Morgan said loudly. "And pay attention."
Throughout the lecture, Alex noticed that Mr Morgan kept glancing at him, his eyes full of disapproval, as if Alex had failed to live up to his expectations.
Eventually, the lecture was over.
"Class dismissed."
Mr Morgan packed up his textbooks and left.
"Cathy." The voice came from the doorway.
Everyone turned in the direction of the voice and saw Billy walking through the door and going straight to Cathy, who was sitting by the window. She stood and hugged him, both of them were in love
Many of the students turned to stare at Alex. Everyone thought that he was Cathy's boyfriend, and they weren’t aware that she had broken up with him.
Alex watched in disgust. He’d heard that Billy had taken at least five different girls to stay at that hotel. Cathy was just the latest in a long line, and Alex had no intention of fighting for her.
Billy strutted past Alex with his arm around Cathy's shoulder.
"Darling, wait a minute," Cathy said to Billy as she stopped in front of Alex and held out her phone. "Since we've broken up, I don’t want to owe you anything. Here's the phone you bought for me a few weeks ago. You can have it back."
Alex glanced at the Samsung Galaxy phone and then took it.
"Hah, you would have to work part-time for six months to afford one of these!" Cathy took a brand-new phone out of her pocket and showed it to Alex. "This is the latest iPhone, and it’s much better than your phone."
"Of course, it's far too expensive for a loser like him." Billy raised his chin and looked at Alex. "Cathy told me that she kept asking for that phone for six months before you finally bought it for her. Do you think you can pick up a girl so far out of your league? You're just embarrassing yourself, so give up. And I'm warning you now: don't even think about her. If I find out you’ve gone anywhere near her, you'll regret it!"
"Don't waste your breath talking to a loser like him. Can we go to De Luca’s for lunch?" Cathy had already dismissed Alex.
"Call me baby," Billy said, smiling at her.
"Baby, let's go." She flirted with him right in front of Alex.
"Cathy!" A petite girl stood up, glaring at her. "You're taking it all too far. I never thought you'd break up with Alex, and I'm ashamed of you."
"Emma, why do you care?" She scowled. When things had been going well with Alex, she’d been on good terms with Emma, who was a decent person. Sometimes, when Cathy had been fighting with Alex, she had asked Emma’s opinion about who was in the right.
"You gave up Alex for someone like Billy?" Emma asked. "How could you treat Alex like this? When you were sick and couldn't even get out of bed, Alex sent you lunch and dinner every day for a month. And when you were walking in the mountains and twisted your ankle, he carried you on his back for miles down the mountain. Don’t you remember that? You know he doesn't make much money from his part-time jobs, but when you wanted a phone, he worked hard for months to save enough money to buy it for you. And this is how you repay him? By breaking up with him and ridiculing him?"
Cathy scowled. "I never forced him to do anything. If he was stupid enough to go along with it, that's his problem! And so what if he bought me a cell phone? It was only a Samsung. And why would I want a Samsung when I can have an iPhone?"
Emma shook her head. "Cathy, I don’t understand you. Do you only care about money? Will money get you everything you want?"
"Yes!" Cathy barked out a laugh. She stared at Emma and said, "I admit that I like money. Is that so wrong?" She took Billy's arm and said, "Come on, baby, let's go. These two poor people disgust me."
She glared at Alex and Emma and then swept out of the classroom with her head held high.

2023.06.08 10:11 universalquantumzen Living Awareness — The Heart of Living Life — Awaken the Living Awareness Within — Discover the Keys to Happiness, Inner Peace & Harmony by Sambodhi Padmasamadhi

"As a natural continuation of the previous chapter, where we talked about Self-Awareness, this and the following two chapters will deepen our understanding of awareness — more specifically, Living Awareness. This is because we have used the term Living Awareness here and there throughout this book, to differentiate between mere idea and something experiential, truly alive; and now it’s time to delve deeper into it. Living Awareness is a term that I coined back in 2014 to refer the deeper levels of awareness, which I began to experience at that time. In a nutshell, Living Awareness means of a direct connection to Source of All Living Life — it is a state of pure awareness beyond the limitations of space, time, and form — the union of opposites, in which self and non-self are realized as one. In other words, Living Awareness is a pure state of being that passes beyond the boundaries of our personal existence — a deep inner knowing, an instant realization, recognition and acknowledgment in every moment that the observer and the observed, subject and the object — are the very same thing — One Interconnected Whole.
Before we can delve deeper into Living Awareness itself, it would be beneficial to explain the basic idea behind awareness, so that we can expand upon it later; and by doing so, we can ease the process of understanding when it comes to Living Awareness. Undoubtedly, awareness is one of the greatest gifts that existence has given to human beings — we all experience it, even if we don’t have a true understanding of what it is or how it works. With increasing awareness, one does find life to be more fulfilling — we will learn more about this in the following chapters. So what is awareness? Beyond definitions related to having consciousness, knowledge or understanding of something, awareness is the quality of being awake, with the recognition that there are different ways in which we may or may not be awake.
Awareness is the state or ability to feel, to perceive, to know, and to be conscious of our own existence — within and without. As such, awareness is closely linked to, and intimately connected with consciousness that makes us conscious of our body and mind, our environment and the world around us. This, in turn, makes us aware of our beingness as a living and breathing expression of life. The physical level of awareness is represented by the body and its sensations of the world. Although our sensations are experienced through the body, this awareness is distinct from awareness of sensation within the body itself, which goes on to say that there is more to awareness than meets the eye — a spiritual dimension or component, if you will. The spiritual level of awareness goes much deeper than the ordinary everyday states of wakefulness — it can be said to be a direct connection to all that is — knowing reality, knowing existence, knowing one’s being, and ultimately, knowing God, you see?
Furthermore, all life has awareness in varying degrees, or more aptly, all Life is Awareness — Living Awareness that comes from Spirit. Our current level of awareness separates us from rocks, plants and animals; as human beings, in a human level, we have expanded our awareness to a certain level of self-awareness, which allows us to express sapience — the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight. It is this very self-awareness that allows us to think, wonder, ponder, and contemplate topics concerning existence itself; it allows us to conceptualize deeper or larger questions about human existence, to pose and ponder questions about life, death, and ultimate realities. This expansion has not yet reached the level where we would be fully self-realized beings, although we are well on our way towards it." You can read the full article on the website:

2023.06.08 10:10 NoAcanthocephala5350 I want to grow $750 in two years being idle

So I want to grow $750 in about a year or two. I see things like IRAs but that’s for retirement. I looked up CDs and it barely gives you $100 in two years. And I don’t really want to invest in the stock market because I feel like it’s just a scam. I don’t understand how something’s value can just randomly go up and down and no one has been able to explain to how it works unless someone is behind deciding when numbers change. Besides where does your money go when it goes down. Just seems like gambling and insider trading. Besides my little rant is there any actual path I can pick to invest this money. I would like something I can just put into an account or something for the two years so I can focus on school.

2023.06.08 10:09 brackk2 Schizotypal fact sheet (version 2)

Schizotypal fact sheet version 2
Here is the updated version of the 'schizotypal fact sheet' I posted a couple years ago. I will probably add more to it and is somewhat of a rough draft. Suggestions for things to include and constructive criticism are appreciated. The full schizotypal fact sheet is much too long for reddit’s character limit, however I have uploaded it at Schizotypal Fact Sheet (version 2) ( This post is a summarized and simplified version, with the full schizotypal fact sheet going into more detail, along with citations.
Examples and more elaborate description of these symptoms are on the full schizotypal fact sheet
Ideas of reference: A tendency to perceive and over-interpret social cues and social occurrences relating to one's self that are unlikely, and a tendency to over-mentalise (think about and detect others thoughts, intentions, and mental states) in relation to oneself.
Magical thinking: Persons with schizotypal personality disorder tend to experience passing magical thoughts and often have magical beliefs, which are specifically unconventional and self referential (i.e., adherence to christianity, paganism, astrology, etc are not indicative of magical thinking and occur commonly in the general population)
Odd speech: Persons with schizotypal personality disorder tend to have unusual patterns of speaking and may have difficulty articulating themselves properly.
Eccentricity: Persons with schizotypal personality disorder tend to be seen as odd and eccentric by others and have unusual behaviors. Importantly, this eccentricity is not the same as oddness caused by social deficits or symptoms associated with other disorders like autism that may be considered odd
Social anxiety: Particularly extreme social anxiety often occurs in schizotypal personality disorder, and results in avoidance of social situations and interactions, often involving referential thinking and paranoid ideation
No close friends: Persons with schizotypal personality disorder tend to have little to no friends as a result of excessive social anxiety, paranoid fears, as well as a need for independence and to not be influenced by others.
Unusual perceptual experiences: A tendency to experience fleeting, mild forms of hallucinations such as visual, auditory, tactile, and bodily distortions. Typically the person is aware that these distortions are hallucinations.
Constricted affect: Persons with schizotypal personality disorder tend to have constricted and unusual expressions of emotion, especially socially. It is important to distinguish from unusual expression of emotion caused by social deficits in autism or other mental disorders
Paranoid ideation: Persons with schizotypal personality disorder frequently experience paranoid thoughts and suspiciousness of others motives. Typically this occurs in association with referential thinking, and involves preoccupation with fears of persecution, exclusion, and conspiracy against oneself, but not cynical interpretations of others motives which is associated with other mental disorders
Common traits
Antagonomia: Unconditional skepticism toward common beliefs, ways of thinking, assumptions, and values, taking an eccentric stance in opposition, with a drive to understand the world at a deeper level in a detached, anthropologist or scientist like manner, which is often perceived as a gift and having a radically unique and exceptional being
Delayed sleep phase: A tendency to sleep and wake much later than the average person, with better mood and mental functioning during the night than in the day
Ambivalence: An abnormally high tendency to have strong mixed feelings toward many things, such as other people, one's self, and decisions
Dyslexic-like traits: Dyslexia is linked to the schizophrenia spectrum and schizotypal personality disorder is associated with features of dyslexia
Motor control: Difficulties with fine motor control are found in StPD, often leading to difficulties with skills such as handwriting and using tools that require precision
Self disorders
Anomalous self experience is thought to be a core feature of schizophrenia spectrum disorders that is unique to schizophrenia spectrum disorders, in contrast to many symptoms which are transdiagnostic. The sense of selfhood, self ownership, embodiment, identity, and immersion in the social world is lacking in schizophrenia spectrum disorders, which leads to traits like antagonomia, hyper-reflectivity, eccentricity, double bookkeeping, social isolation, and “bizzare” delusions.
Hyper-reflectivity: Exaggerated self-consciousness and abnormally high levels of reflection and introspection, disengaging from typical involvement in society and nature, perceiving oneself from a sort of ‘third person perspective’. This may drive some individuals with schizotypal traits or StPD to an interest in psychology, with many innovative psychologists having significant signs of schizotypal personality disorder.
Double bookkeeping: A “split” experience of reality, where one reality is based in the laws of nature and independence of the mind from the external world, and the other reality is a “delusional” private framework that violates the laws of nature, which co-exist.
Childhood schizotypal personality disorder
There is a common misconception that schizophrenia spectrum disorders begin at adolescence, however this is not the case, rather the onset of psychosis tends to occur in adolescence, but schizophrenia spectrum disorders and symptoms are present from childhood. Children with schizotypal personality disorder have similar symptoms to adults, and may additionally have autistic-like traits (such as strong interests) which tend to fade into adulthood.
The schizophrenia spectrum
Schizotypal personality disorder is not a distinct category of personality and brain function, but is rather on a continuum with 'normal' personality, from no schizotypal traits all the way to severe schizophrenia. Traits of schizotypal personality disorder in the general population are referred to as "schizotypy". Increased levels of schizotypy are characteristic of creative, imaginative, open-minded, eccentric individuals who may otherwise be high functioning and healthy. Schizoid and avoidant personality disorder are included in this spectrum.
Personality traits
In the big five, schizotypal personality disorder is characterized by high openness, low conscientiousness, low extraversion, and high neuroticism. High openness and low conscientiousness most clearly differentiate schizotypal personality from schizophrenia and controls.
In MBTI, schizotypal personality is associated with introversion, intuition, thinking, and perceiving (INTP type).
On the fisher temperament inventory, StPD is associated with low cautious/social norm compliant and analytical/tough minded, and higher prosocial/empathetic and curious/energetic temperaments
Anxious avoidant attachment style is associated with StPD
Interests and Strengths
Schizotypal personality disorder is associated with having creative interests, hobbies, and professions, such as painting, music, comedy, scientific research, and entrepreneurship. Increased creativity, imagination, and global processing (“big picture” thinking).
Cognitive ability and intelligence
In contrast to schizophrenia, intellectual ability is not reduced in StPD but there are specific impairments in areas such as attention and verbal learning. Intelligence effects the presentation of StPD, being associated with lower magical and paranormal beliefs, lower sexual and social anhedonia, more successful creativity, and better theory of mind
Theory of Mind
Theory of mind ability is generally reduced in StPD, however this is not caused by mentalizing deficits as in autism, and are largely due to lower cognitive ability that is associated with schizophrenia spectrum disorders, anomalous self experience, and hyper-mentalizing.
Relationship with worldviews and religiosity
Schizotypy is conducive to affective religious experiences (e.g., feeling connected to a higher power), however evidence suggests that persons with StPD are less likely to be religious than the general population, but may have unconventional spiritual beliefs (“spiritual but not religious”)
Relationships with other disorders
StPD is associated with low levels of primary psychopathy (e.g., dominance, lack of empathy, high stress tolerance, deceptiveness), and high secondary psychopathy (e.g., impulsivity, rebelliousness, social deviance)
Borderline personality disorder
StPD and BPD overlap very highly and are related disorders, however persons with BPD do not have negative symptoms (social isolation, extreme social anxiety, hyper-independence, constricted affect) and also do not have self disorders, whereas those with StPD do
Other SSDs
Given that StPD is on a spectrum with other schizophrenia spectrum disorders, there is overlap between the disorders with shared symptoms. Put simply, those with schizoid PD meet criteria for avoidant PD, those with schizotypal PD meet criteria for both, and those with schizophrenia meet criteria for all three. Avoidant PD involves social withdrawal and severe social anxiety, schizoid PD involves constricted affect, hyper-independence, and eccentricity on top of AvPD symptoms, and schizotypal PD involves odd speech, perceptual distortions, magical thinking, ideas of reference, and paranoia. Schizophrenia involves psychosis, anhedonia, cognitive deficits, and more severe expression of the symptoms of schizotypal PD.
Bipolar disorder
Bipolar disorder is very closely related to the schizophrenia spectrum, and it has been suggested that bipolar disorder may be on a continuum with schizotypal personality disorder and schizophrenia. Most people with bipolar disorder will have symptoms of schizotypal personality disorder and vice versa.
Histrionic & Narcissistic personality disorder
HPD and NPD are negatively associated with StPD, however they may appear superficially similar in some aspects (e.g., idionomia in StPD may be mistaken as narcissistic grandiosity).
Obsessive compulsive spectrum
StPD shows a positive relationship with OCD, but a negative relationship with obsessive compulsive personality disorder (OcPD), as OcPD involves hyper-conscientiousness and conformity whereas low conscientiousness and disinhibition are characteristic of schizotypy
Substance use
Substance use is extremely common in StPD, with 67% of patients having a diagnosable substance use disorder
Mood disorders
Mood disorders including generalized anxiety, major depression, and panic disorder are very common in schizotypal personality disorder, as is the case in most psychiatric disorders
Dissociative disorders
Depersonalization and derealization are common in StPD, and there is evidence that dissociative disorders and schizophrenia spectrum disorders may have shared causes
Symptoms of ADHD are very common in StPD, and differences in attention and self regulation are thought to play a part in the causation of StPD.
Autism and StPD appear to overlap, but this is largely due to transdiagnostic symptoms and superficial similarities. Thorough and theoretically informed examination of the relationship between these disorders suggests that they are likely opposite ends of a continuum. Currently, no clinical tools exist that can differentiate the two disorders, however there is one being developed currently set to be completed by the end of 2023. Comorbid diagnoses of autism and StPD largely appear to be false positives upon investigation, and evidence suggests that a true comorbidity would either be characterized by very high intelligence or severe intellectual disability. Some distinctions (that are easily observable) between the disorders are listed below
Biological causes
StPD is mostly genetic, but trauma may increase symptom severity
Cannabinoid system
Cannabis produces effects resembling StPD symptoms and associated traits, and StPD is associated with higher levels of anandamide, the neurotransmitter which activates the same receptors as cannabis. Cannabis is also found to temporarily increase the severity of positive symptoms
Serotonin system
Higher serotonin is associated with conformity, conscientiousness, and low openness, which is opposite of StPD. People with StPD have higher levels of enzymes that break down serotonin, and lower expression of some serotonin receptors.
Dynorphin system
Dynorphin is a stress hormone that produces dysphoria, dissociation, and psychotic-like symptoms and cognition. Dynorphin levels are associated with increased severity of schizophrenia spectrum symptoms
Glutamate & NMDA
NMDA is a type of glutamate receptor that is reduced in association with schizophrenia spectrum disorders. NMDA blockers cause symptoms and associated traits of StPD and can induce psychosis, and people with StPD also have higher levels of the NMDA antagonist neurotransmitter agmatine.
Cognitive, psychological, and evolutionary causes
Predictive processing
A recent model of schizotypy suggests that it is a cognitive-perceptual specialization for processing chaotic and noisy data, where patterns and relationships exist but can only be detected if minor inconsistencies are ignored (i.e., focusing on the 'big picture'), where giving higher weight to prediction errors prevents the detection of false patterns (i.e. apophenia) at the cost of being unable to detect higher level patterns (autism), and giving lower weight to prediction errors allows for the detection of higher level patterns at the cost of occasionally detecting patterns that don't exist, as in delusions and hallucinations that occur in schizotypy. This model explains many traits associated with schizotypy and links other theories of schizotypy
The hyper-mentalizing model suggests that symptoms like ideas of reference, paranoia, erotomania, auditory hallucinations, delusions of conspiracy, etc are a result of excessive mentalizing, where intentions are inferred excessively to the point of delusion, in contrast to autism where mentalizing is reduced. Many other features and associated traits like odd speech and increased creativity can be explained by this model.
It is thought that StPD may involve overly increased imagination, which can explain symptoms and features like hyper-mentalizing, dissociation, perceptual deficits, and enhanced creativity.
Life history
It is suggested that StPD may have been evolutionarily selected for due to its ability to enhance short term mating success through enhanced creativity and non-conformity, which are beneficial to desirability as short term partners, but not long term partners. This is supported by studies showing that persons with high traits of StPD have more total sexual partners, more effort into forming short term relationships, and lower effort into maintaining long term ones. This is consistent with a fast life history strategy, and StPD correlates with other markers of fast strategies such as impulsivity, sensation seeking, low disgust sensitivity, earlier maturation, etc.
Hyper-openness and apophenia
Openness to experience is associated with apophenia and intelligence, though the two latter traits are negatively related to eachother. It is suggested that schizotypy represents apophenia, and an imbalance of high openness relative to intelligence is suggested to cause symptoms of StPD. This model is in agreement with other models, with openness relating to higher imagination, mentalizing, and faster life history strategies.

2023.06.08 10:05 ionafortune Landlord gave us permission to remove items and is now claiming for them via our deposit.

Hi everyone. We moved into a flat two years ago that was absolutely filthy and had a lot of broken furniture and items left by the previous tenants (the landlord started the contract by breaking it as he was contractually meant to have it deep cleaned before we arrived)
We sought to have the furniture removed, this was confirmed in the following email from Foxtons:
I have received confirmation from the landlord that he is happy for you to dispose of the Tv and the furniture at your own cost.
Kind Regards
We removed the furniture (at our own time/ expense). The landlord is now claiming for the value of the items (plus others that were not removed and are photographed in the end of tenancy images 🤦🏼‍♀️😅)
Do we have a case here to retrieve the money they are withholding from our deposit?

2023.06.08 10:01 SeanWang99 Capacitors in EMC

Capacitors in EMC
A capacitor is a component capable of storing an electric charge, which consists of two conductor plates and a dielectric. When a voltage is applied across the capacitor, the charge is stored between the two conductor plates, creating an electric field. The storage capacity of a capacitor is related to the dielectric constant of the dielectric, the area of the capacitor plates and the distance between the plates.

The role of capacitors in EMC is as follows:
1、Suppress EMI
Capacitance can be used to suppress EMI, thereby improving the EMC performance of the circuit. When there is high-frequency noise in a circuit, a capacitor can be connected in parallel between its input and output to form a short circuit, thus directing the high-frequency noise to the ground. In EMC, capacitors are often used to suppress EMI on the signal and power lines.

Capacitors can be used to filter out high-frequency noise in a circuit, thereby improving the signal-to-noise ratio of the circuit. When high-frequency noise exists in a circuit, a capacitor can be connected in series between its input and output to form a low-pass filter. In EMC, low-pass filters often suppress high-frequency noise in switching power supplies.

3、Adjusting frequency response
Capacitors can be used to adjust the frequency response of a circuit to improve the performance of the circuit. For example, in an audio amplifier, a capacitor can be connected in series between the input and output to form a high-pass filter to filter out low-frequency signals. In EMC, high-pass filter is often used to suppress low-frequency noise on the cable transmission line.

EMC application of common capacitors:
1、Ceramic capacitor
A ceramic capacitor is a kind of capacitor, whose dielectric is ceramic material. Ceramic capacitors have high capacitance stability and low loss factor, which can be used in high frequency circuits. In EMC, ceramic capacitors are often used to filter out high frequency noise and suppress EMI.

2、electrolytic capacitor
The electrolytic capacitor is a capacitor, its dielectric is formed by a chemical reaction of the film. Electrolytic capacitors usually have a large capacitance value and a high voltage tolerance. In EMC, electrolytic capacitors are often used to balance the supply voltage fluctuations, filter out high-frequency noise and suppress EMI.

3、Large capacitor
Large capacitor is a high capacitance value capacitor, usually used to store a large amount of charge. In EMC, large capacitors are often used to balance the supply voltage fluctuations to eliminate EMI. for example, when there are supply voltage fluctuations in the environment, you can connect a large capacitor in parallel with the power line, thus smoothing the supply voltage and reducing EMI.

4、Metallized polyimide capacitor
Metallized polyimide capacitor is a kind of capacitor whose dielectric is composed of polyimide film and metal foil. Metallized polyimide capacitors have high capacitance stability and low ESR (equivalent series resistance), and can be used in high frequency circuits. In EMC, metallized polyimide capacitors are often used to filter out high frequency noise and suppress EMI.

How to choose the right capacitor to improve EMC performance?
1、Frequency response
The frequency response of a capacitor is its change in capacitance value at different frequencies. When selecting a capacitor, it is necessary to determine the capacitor required according to the frequency response of the circuit. If the frequency response of the capacitor does not match the needs of the circuit, it may lead to degradation of the circuit performance.

2、Capacitance value
The capacitance value is an important factor in selecting a capacitor. When selecting capacitors, the required capacitance value needs to be determined according to the needs of the circuit. If the capacitance value is too small, it may not be able to effectively filter out high-frequency noise and suppress EMI; if the capacitance value is too large, it may cause the circuit response to become slower.

3、Voltage tolerance
The voltage tolerance of a capacitor is the maximum voltage it can withstand. When selecting capacitors, the required voltage tolerance needs to be determined according to the maximum voltage of the circuit. If the capacitor's voltage tolerance is lower than the maximum voltage of the circuit, the capacitor may be damaged.

ESR is the equivalent series resistance of a capacitor, which is usually composed of the conductor material inside the capacitor and the resistance of the wiring leads. When selecting a capacitor, its ESR value needs to be considered. If the ESR value of the capacitor is too high, it may cause the circuit response to slow down and the EMI suppression effect is reduced.

2023.06.08 09:58 MyNameIsIgglePiggle - throwing my hat in the ring

Hey all,
So like many of you I have given lemmy a go because they are taking away my preferred way of browsing reddit. Unfortunately the small amount of time ive used lemmy (and considering running my own server) ive come to the conclusion that as a social network I don't think it will scale. Plus there are a bunch of usability issues with it for new / non tech users.
So what I am proposing is an open source codebase, hosted centrally and and a business model (because if we don't have a way of generating revenue it will implode) of having a few ads in the feed and the ability to pay to remove them. To start with though it would be patreon.
Ideally there would be a number of passionate maintainers that will vet the code and anyone who wants to can submit a pull request.
I've cobbled together a first draft that seems to be working - you can check it out now:
Its similar to reddit, but using quokkas as the theme and they have baby joeys so thats what subs are called. As its all open source that can be changed anyway.
Yes it will be buggy - if you want to make a pull request submit one!
Anyway, it is what you make it, in the end the value is in the community so if nobody wants it no problem, it was a fun little project I smashed out in two days.
PS. scaling and infrastructure wise its currently running on an autoscaling instance of google cloud run, the database will be a bit limited but can be upgraded quickly if it gets a hug of death. Provided it gets some traction I would propose to have an image host included as part of the income derived from the donations / fees.
In any case, nothing is set in stone and I would love your feedback

2023.06.08 09:57 Ipod732 25 [M4F] California - A Definitive Advertisement To Find That Someone

Hello! I've posted here on r4r a handful of times now and I wanted to try and write up a more definitive ad. Every time I've written up a new one it contained new information or less information than a previous post so, I'm going to try and compile it all into one master post. That way everything there is to decide whether you'd like to message me is easily available and accessible to you without having to dig around a dozen other posts.
Now that the "prologue" is out of the way let's jump into why you're here and what it is I'm looking for.
Who Am I?
Things I enjoy:
What I'm Looking For?
A woman who I can meet, befriend, love, marry, have kids, and grow old with. I'm a hopeless romantic, I guess lol. It would go in that order and as for the timeline, that's for fate to decide.
Age - Ideally 21+, but will accept as long as you're 18+. Ideal age range 21-30. If you're slightly older or slightly younger that's fine too. +/- 7 is the general rule of thumb.
Looks - Personality beats looks, but attraction is still important. I don't have a type per se. Don't really care about race/ethnicity. I'm trying to work on my weight myself so I rather not cast a stone at a glass house, but proportionality is something I find attractive. A gym partner or someone who can help me with my weight would also be appreciated(we can run together or go hike, etc.)
Personality - I find that sometimes when I'm not attracted to a person , their personality attracts me to them. Personality can elevate a 5 to a 10 or reduce a 10 to a 1 instantly. All I ask is that you're intelligent(a woman who can think for herself, articulate her thoughts, and is able to challenge me when I'm wrong), kind, communicative(communication is key in any relationship), and is sociable(don't need to be extroverted, just able to socialize when the situation calls for it).
Location - In California, looking to move to California, or willing to relocate (a hard ask considering everyone is leaving California lol). For the foreseeable future, I'm stuck here for work and family. Maybe someday I'll have a nice plot of land in the middle of nowhere and can live off the fatta the land with some rabbits. If you read the post and know the book, you got the reference.
What can I Give You?
Tea - As I mentioned before, I'll brew you tea and sometimes I might have a good story to tell over tea lol.
Laughter - I have a contagious laugh and I enjoy joking around. I laugh at most things so it's not too hard to elicit a laugh from me which might get you laughing too.
Adventure - I like visiting new places with friends or a companion so as long as you desire it, we can always adventure out to new places. Whether it's a beach, a new city, a forest, mountain, you name it, we can go.
Optimism - I have a generally happy-go-lucky attitude with life and I'll be happy to reassure you life is good and things will be fine. And if you need the opposite with harsh realism, ask and you shall receive lol.
Hygiene - I do my best to keep myself clean. I also wash my own dishes. I try to keep my home clean, but it's a bit difficult when you're never home. I bought my first condo in 2021 and now I understand why people rent. It's difficult to maintain everything and expensive. And on top of all that you gotta keep it clean even when you're not home.
Attention - As much as you desire. I enjoy people and having someone around all the time is fine by me. I also don't mind some alone time and lawyer stuff can be a bit time-consuming.
Food - I can't cook, but I'll try. I tried to make sushi and failed two weekends ago. Rice was too sticky and too hot. Also the sashimi refused to thaw no matter how long I waited(was well over 12 hours...) But wrapping it was actually easier than I expected just not evenly distributed along the roll.
I think that covered everything I needed to add or wanted to add in here. If I come up with more I'll be updating this master ad over time. Feel free to message me or use the chat feature. Also if you like we can move to Discord, feel free to ask for it. Attached is a photo of me as well. Thanks for bearing through this long post. And if you didn't read it all, that's fine. It's too damn long.

2023.06.08 09:55 Emerald-Dragon786 Just some things my oc, Dexter, would say (Without context)

(I only post about my oc if nobody has noticed yet, and for lack of artistic skills I will have to slowly get comfortable unleashing my writing skills online again.)

"So don't panic, but the door to the lab might be sealed off with ice."
"I was already a danger to myself but thanks for noticing."
"How many of these potions can I take without dying again?"
"The real magic is all of these perfect circles cause I couldn't do that myself."
(To his abomination) "I work so hard so you can sit in your little bottle all day."
(To his palisman) "These are my pretzels man, you don't even need to eat."
(To the doctor) "Am I supposed to feel like I'm melting?"
(To doctor's assistant) "You don't have to take a note every time I sneeze. Wait until I vomit."
"What a great day to have mystery pain."
(To group of enemies) "Fighting is cool but would you consider a picnic instead?"
"I know the exact monetary value of my life, so don't try to bargain with me."
(To Vee) "Can I borrow some blood? Doc has good money for me if I try out some basilisk genes."
"I'm getting a good grade in test subject for doing this."
(When caught out of disguise) "Would you mind forgetting about that? You know, for fun."
"Being bad at everything gives me room to be bad at losing."

(If this does anything for y'all let me know, maybe I'll brush off my real skills and try to slam out a little short story or two to help properly introduce him to the community.)

2023.06.08 09:54 cdieck Should I leave my employer?

I have been at my employer for almost 2 years. I started out as a Distribution Associate with over 3 years of Forklift, Inventory Control and warehouse operations. I had applied for a Warehouse Lead at a different facility a few months after starting but was overlooked. They had offered the position to 3 others before finally giving the position to the Lead at my current facility. That person is now a Supervisor at that facility. I had also interviewed for other corporate positions before what happened next. About a year ago, they offered me a Lead position at that same facility where my Lead went but we couldn't come to an agreement on the pay. Two days later, I was contacted by Corporate HR about how my position had been eliminated and had a choice to take a settlement or move to the production side. I chose to go to production because I was under the impression they were eliminating positions by seniority and I wasn't the lowest on seniority, nor had I been applying anywhere.
After a couple months in production, I held a position that was within 40 cents of what they had offered me for the Lead position at the other facility. I found myself in an uncomfortable situation (employee safety) in that department which led me to bid out to an entry position. I had turned in that uncomfortable situation to the employer's ethics hotline. Since then, I have not been interviewed for any positions that I have applied for. I have a bachelor's degree in Business - IT Management from WGU, as well as an AA in emphasis in Programming from University of Phoenix.
Should I stay with the employer or move on?

2023.06.08 09:53 Far_Agency9667 Leaving

Got a 36 cent raise. No interest in moving me up positions within the store or the company. Then ASMs act surprised about me putting in my two weeks. I’m 25 years old with just an associates degree, but now I’m ready to work full time at a job that’s more challenging in terms of personal and career development. Another company has decided to hire me as a manager and I’ll be getting a 20% pay increase when I start compared to what I was making before. It’s wild how someone else at another company can see so much in me that no one at TJ Maxx did apparently.

2023.06.08 09:51 Kinduhgud Post final shape things i want

I wanna start by saying no I'm not delusional enough to think that a new engine or a new game would automatically fix all the issues in the game these are things I genuinely feel that bungie can improve on and I won't be talking much on obvious things like new supers and the such
First off whatever is after final shape i want it to be a year or two off. I dont think that I can go another 10 years of destiny straight afterwards I feel like that doing this would not only be helpful for marathon to shine but also to let them release the TV show before release to build hype about the game
Also next gen only but thats obvious. I also want them to get a pvp and a gambit lead aswell as have healthy release schedules for maps, I wanna say that I feel like gambit doesn't need many updates in my opinion I feel like the pvevp aspect is enough to keep people replaying and having fun so it can go much longer without any major updates
I want separate sandboxes like completely separate I feel like the reason stasis is so lackluster in pve is because of nerfs made for pvp like the radius of the first scythe in silence and squall
On that topic I feel like mobility can be massively expanded upon and to be honest I feel like hunters should get a slight speed bump in general things like sprint speed and slide or give them a plus 20 base mobility along with some small changes and buffs so we don't have to focus on getting armor with triple or quadruple 100s for us to be mobile
Titans should get somethings that allow them to be more like tanks, my idea was for a strand super where you do an initial slam with a relatively small radius and depending on how many you kill you would get different guns. Like for example if you killed the max amount (lets just say 12 ads or 3-4 guardians) you would get a damage resisit and a large gun thats a 260 and three shots to the head or 4 to the body. Let me know what you think of this
Warlocks i feel like bungie has gotten their fantasy down very well each time so I don't think I have many thoughts on them to be honest but buff starfire to be 6 percent instead of 2.5
If its a new game I don't mind if everything gets deleted as long as alot of the exotics stay things like legendaries don't have that much value to me as we'd be getting a ton anyway but I would like to see iconic weapons like the black armory or some raid weapons to return in some capacity, like basically just get us exotics and some fan favorite legendaries
Let me know what you think of this and what you would like to see post final shape

2023.06.08 09:49 RinkyDinka Put on PIP, requested reasonable adjustments, instead being made redundant

Hi, I had a PIP sprung on me by surprise in my annual appraisal.
The reasons for the PIP hadn't been shared with me previously, but taking them at face value seemed to be linked to ADHD, which I was diagnosed with about 10 years ago.
I therefore asked for an OH referral before being placed on the PIP so my company had some insight into where I may need support in the form of adjustments. The OH referral took months, and adjustments still haven't been implemented.
This week however I've been told my role is being made redundant. This feels like a way to sidestep having to make adjustments, but realistically do I have any recourse?
Less than two years service, and I’m in England btw.

2023.06.08 09:45 souravghosh Membership or Subscription: Which Model Drives Success for Your Shopify Store?

The subscription economy has witnessed rapid growth in recent years, but there are indications of a slowdown on the horizon.
As per a recent report, 40% of consumers feel overwhelmed with multiple subscriptions, and subscription-based e-commerce is projected to have its slowest growth year in 2023.
However, brands are not backing down. They are placing their bets on the subscription model by introducing paid memberships that offer exclusive perks to subscribers.
Think about Amazon Prime’s free two-day shipping, Netflix’s vast library of movies and TV shows, or Spotify Premium’s ad-free music streaming experience.
“But why should a DTC brand like mine care about Netflix or Spotify subscriptions?” you may ask.
According to Christopher George, CEO of SUBTA’s annual conference SubSummit, “The competition has now transcended verticals. Today, brands are vying for consumers’ share of wallet. So, if you’re in the beauty industry, you’re competing with Netflix, for example.”
Paid memberships can play a pivotal role in fostering customer loyalty and generating recurring revenue for brands.
However, it is crucial to offer valuable benefits that justify the cost. Otherwise, customers may hesitate to sign up.
Here are some tips to create a successful paid membership program for your Shopify store:
🔸 Provide exclusive benefits that hold significance for your target audience. 🔸 Ensure that the cost of membership is affordable and competitive. 🔸 Make the sign-up and cancellation process hassle-free. 🔸 Offer exceptional customer service to enhance the overall experience.
By implementing these strategies, you can pave the way for a thriving paid membership program that adds value to your business.
While the subscription economy continues to evolve, it is essential for brands to adapt to the changing landscape.
Paid memberships present a remarkable opportunity to cultivate loyalty and generate recurring revenue.
